Shenzhen is to strengthen its regulations on smoking in public places, making it the strictest smoking policy in history, Nanfang Daily has reported.

The strenghtening is to focus on five areas of the policy.

Since the implementation of the smoking policy in Shenzhen on March 1, 2014, smoking in public places has been banned, carrying a total fine of 3.745 millio

n yuan, comprising a 3.325 million yuan fine for illegal smokers and 420,000 yuan for public places that failed to control smoking.

In implementing the policy however, problems arose with excessive fines, difficulties

with law enforcement and evidence collection, and complicated punishment procedures.

Deputies of Shenzhen People’s Congress on Jan 18 jointly proposed that Shenzhen should revise the policy to make the regulations more practical and operable.

The revised draft of The Regulation on Smoking Control explicitly expands the de

finition of smoking to include the use of e-cigarettes and other lit tobacco products.

It also expands the scope of smoke-free areas, which now include outdoor p

latforms and areas featuring wait lines for public transport, such as buses, coa

ches, taxis, subways, ships, civil aircraft and other public transport vehicles.

Smoking is also prohibited within five meters of subway entrances and exits.

The draft enhances protection for minors. It stipulates that no tobacco produ

cts are to be sold within 100 meters of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, and children’s activity centers.

run with fences and nets used to trap fish. Pollutants discharged by residents liv

ing in the area went directly into the lake, and water quality went from bad to worse.

“We could drink directly from the lake at the beginning, but a few years lat

er, the water began to stink, and we had to buy bottled water onshore” Chen recalled.

Overfishing and other human activities put the lake in crisis.

Realizing the need to clean up the lake, the local government took a series of protec

tive measures including relocating all the fishermen and getting rid of all the fences and nets.

Under the government policy on relocation of fishermen, Chen got 170,000 yuan (around 25,368 U.S. dollars) of

subsidy after moving onshore. Using the subsidy, the 110,000 yuan he got from selling his boat to the g

overnment and his own savings, he bought a nice apartment not far from his workplace.

  The Chinese government has decided to grant a three-year-long tax benefit to inspire self-employment and support small companies to hire more people in need.

  Under a decision jointly announced Saturday by the Ministry of Finance, State Taxation Adm

inistration and other governmental departments, people in need who start a business can have 12,0

00 yuan (about 1,790 US dollars) deducted from their families’ annual share of taxes over three years.

  The preferential treatment will target those registered as needy, jobless for more th

an half a year, on subsistence allowances or recent graduates from higher educational institutions.

  The decision allows provincial-level governments to raise tax relief by 20 percent at most, depending on the needs of the region.

  Companies who have hired the needy and paid social insurances for them can also

enjoy tax deductions to the tune of 6,000 yuan per person a year for three years.

ons to China following China-US trade talks that have brought a soybeans deal back to the table.

After the latest trade talks concluded on a positive note, China agreed to purchase more agricultural products from the US, particu

2019, an industry representative from the South American country told the Global Times on Saturday.

ious projection made in December and a sharp fall from the 83.8 million tons that the country exported in 2018.

The stomach is the first stop in the digestive tract before food and drink passes onwards

into the intestines. It is a muscular bean-shaped sack about the size of a fist that is situated at the top of the abdo

men. The cells of the stomach lining secrete acidic gastric juices, which mix with ingested food.

Stomach cancer is one of the top four most common cancers worldwide and is a significant

problem in China. The estimated five-year survival rate for stomach cancer is less than 30 percent. If diagnose

d at an early stage, the chances of being successfully cured are greatly improved, which is why early detection is very important.

Beijing United Family Hospital’s UK gastroenterologist Dr Neil Galletly talks more ab

out the disease and discusses ways people can prevent stomach cancer to keep our stomachs healthy.

ngs known to reduce the risk of cancer).  Although avoiding risk factors and increasing protective factors does not guarantee that you will not get canc

er, it should lower your risk. Taking the following actions should reduce your risk of stomach cancer:

According to Taiwanese media reports, Zhong Liti recently exposed the beautiful scenery of Samui Island in Thailand, but the content of t

he text has caused controversy. She said that she took her father and mother-in-law to Sumei Island for 1

1 days of detoxification treatment, during which she only drank oil, and many toxins were discharged from her bod

y, which made her feel relaxed and comfortable. She also said that diabetes, hypertension, cirrhosis and other dise

ases could be discharged through this course, hoping that more people would come to Sumei Island to detoxify. Enthusiastic solicitation reminds net

izens of Yi Nengjing, who recently shared spiritual lessons and was bombarded by cults and pyramids.

Zhong Liti and her parents-in-law had a bottle of oil. They only drank oil for 11 days. It’s really incredible to call directly, “I ho

pe more friends can come to Sumei Island to detoxify and work together to make their health healthier and he

althier.” Some netizens asked, “How is it so like Ying Nengjing’s deceived mind course”, “Is there any scientific basis? If you

don’t have the best, don’t recommend it casually. Others jumped out and said they were in the det

oxification camp. “It’s actually a little useful,” and Po came out to take photos with Zhong Liti.
