The welder spent another three hours on Friday morning but

Less likelybut not impossible — is that the EU refuses a delay

European diplomatic sources have been clear over the past few months that any kind of extension would be far easier to swallow if the UK made clear its long-term

intentions, rather than putting things off for no reason. To put it mildly, clarity has hitherto not been Britain’s strong point.

Any Brexit delay requires the unanimous approval of the European Council, the EU’s supreme decision-making body that includes the leaders of each member sta

te, meeting in Brussels this week. This is where difficulties begin. Since the start of the whole process, Brexiteers have bold

ly asserted that the unity of the EU27 would eventually crack and the UK could finally get its way.

It didn’t. To date, the EU has stood firmly by the dea

l it reached with the UK — the so-called Withdrawal Agreement — insisting it was locked down and ready for Britain to approve.

But given the UK Parliament’s reluctance to do so, and the consequent prospect of a dela

y to Brexit, something interesting has happened. For the first time in the Brexit process, we are

Reasons abound as to why the cat economy is flourish

ing in China. For one, pet cats are good stress-busters. And in these hectic, stressful times in urban areas, they could prove very useful, experts said.

Agreed Huang Xinyi, 28, a Beijing-based film producer. “Every time my cat purrs at me

, head-butts my face, and rubs against my leg, I want to hug him and kiss him all over.”

Many of her generation, aged 25 to 35, are busy pursuing busy careers in cities, far from their

hometowns. “I get lonely sometimes, but my cat has always been good company,” Huang said.

“Moreover, cats are more independent. I don’t have to walk my cat every day, but I play with him whenever I find some spare time.”

That is important for most young people struggling to find work-life balance in urban areas due to hectic lifestyles.

According to a report from Frost & Sullivan China, keeping cats for pets costs a little less than maintaining dogs.

ijing Jiangong Hospital was once an enterprise-owned hospital

Statistics from Beijing-headquartered think tank iyiou.com revealed that by last September, there were a total of 20,011 private hosp

itals in China, accounting for nearly half of the country’s medical institutions. According to Hao Deming, exec

utive vice-president and secretary-general of the Chinese Nongovernment Medical Institutions Association, starting from

2013, the number of China’s private hospitals has grown at an annual rate of 15 percent.

Capital also favors private hospitals. “The number of private hospitals in China accounts f

or half of the total, and is growing at a much higher rate than the number of public hospitals. The invest

ment from the capital market into the sector is an unprecedented blockbuster expansion,” said Xia Xia

oyan, a partner and managing director of Boston Consulting Group, during an interview with pppod.net.

The report from BCG showed that since 2012, investment in medical in

stitutions has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 80 percent, realizing a fiftyfold incr

ease from 2012 to 2018. Between 2015 and 2016 a record number of deals took place.

From the beginning of 2017 to May 2018, China’s private healthcare institutions had attracted roughly 11 billion yuan of inve

stment, and each deal surpassed 200 million yuan, according to the report issued by iyiou.com.

Anatomy of a failed summit: At Hanoi, all or nothing ends

  In the most important sense, the Hanoi summit failed for a very simple reason: North Korea will not eliminate its nuclear arsenal ov

er the next months or years. However, this does not mean that negotiations are doomed to fail or misgu

ided — just the opposite. It is more important than ever that negotiations succeed in limiting the threat from a nu

clear-armed North Korea. Without a decisive shift in course, a third summit would only end up like the first two.

  Pyongyang’s conduct over the last year and decade should leave no doubt about its in

tention to retain its nuclear arsenal. Pyongyang has made unreasonable requests for compensation, obfuscate

d or stonewalled during talks and has continued to expand, conceal, and deploy its arsenal even as they co

ntinued. The Hanoi summit failed to disarm North Korea because North Korea won’t disarm.

  But in another sense, the summit failed because the Trump administration has main

tained an inflexible insistence that immediate disarmament is the only acceptable outcome.

  When Pyongyang refuses an implausible proposal to han

d over a down payment of warheads, the administration goes off in search of the next

implausible proposal that might happen to work. Trump is unprepared and unequipped to negotiate a

Taken to tusk: preserving the art of shuayangdiao opera, Jinlian

Seeing Xue Qiaoping wearing a short jacket, a leather beret and a pink scarf, it is hard to imagine how she would look on stage with 10 tusks protruding from her mouth.

Xue is an exponent of shuaya, meaning “teeth play”, a highly unusual perform

ance that is part of pingdiao (flat tone), a local folk opera of Ningbo, Zhejiang province.

Before going on stage, actors insert tusks-which are about 6 to 8 centi

meters long and taken from a male wild boar-into their mouths. The tusks are moved in

and out using the mouth and tongue to reflect characters’ changes of emotions, as songs are sung and lines spoken.

“Teeth play” and face-changing in Sichuan Opera is together known as xiliandongya (“face in the West and teeth in th

e East”). Shuaya is just a part of pingdiao, which dates back to the 17th century and has about 400 tunes in its rep

ertoire, and lyrics are sung in the local dialect. Traditionally, the music is played with drums and bronze gongs, mean

ing a loud, noisy performance, but contemporary recitals include stringed instruments such as the erhu, violin and cello.

Authorities guarded Boeung Kroam Lake for more

than a month before the event – to prevent illegal fishing and ensure there would be enough to catch at the annual event.

It kicked off in the early morning with hundreds of villagers racing to the lake, spo

rting straw hats and traditional scarves to shield themselves from the blazing sun.

The mood was light-hearted and many opted to grill the morning’s catch by the lake over a smoldering fire.

But for villagers who had attended the event for several years, the day’s haul proved disappointing.

“Before, there were bigger fish,” said Chin Khoung, 50.

“Now the fish are small and there’s less [of them].”

The Southeast Asian country, which boasts the mighty Mekong River and its man

y tributaries, is heavily reliant on fish as a major source of protein for its population.

Folorunsho Amsat, a journalist, told Xinhua one of the

 of the polls postponement is that it would cause many voters to be depressed and the country might record a low turnout of electorates when the election eventually holds.

“The momentum is dying. I hope it’s not dead in one week,” he said.

According to the electoral chief, shifting the polls was “a difficult decision for the Commission to take.”

For more than seven hours, the electoral chief and the 12 nation

al commissioners of the INEC were in a closed-door meeting on Friday night.

The elections were supposed to hold at 119,973 polling units across the country while collation of res

ults was to take place in 8,809 registration areas or wards, 774 local government areas in 36 states and the capital Abuja.

Sources had hinted a possible postponement of the election due to logistic challenges in some parts of the country.

The official News Agency of Nigeria, citing official sources in the north-central state of Niger

had reported that ballot papers for two of the state’s three senatorial districts were missing as of Friday evening.
