Running out of vaccine stock has been a nationwide phenomenon, mainly caused by the insufficient production capability of manu上海后花园

上海后花园With dozens of suitcases lined up in two rows on the center’s training ground, Fun, a
3-year-old Labrador sniffer dog, takes just 10 seconds to find the one containing drugs.
Fun sits obediently in front of the suitcase while his handler, customs officer Yu Xiaodong, crouches and pats him上海后花园品茶微信
on the head as encouragement. Yu then uses a rolled-up towel to play a tug-of-war game with Fun.
“Tug-of-war is the biggest motivation for these dogs to work,” he said. “By dragging the towel, the excitability of the dogs can be cultivated.”上海后花园
Yu said the dogs rely on their acute sense of smell. “Without unpacking the luggage, the sniffer dogs are faster and more accurate than manual inspections.
“上海后花园品茶微信With the emergence of new kinds of drugs, these sniffer dogs need to update their sensibilities to detect the new stuff.”
New synthetic drugs including stimulants similar to amphetamines are appearing constantly, according to the Supreme People’s P
rocuratorate. Detecting them has also become more difficult, because a large number of drug dealers no longer ca上海后花园

“In accordance with the different tasks, the detection dogs in custo上海后花园品茶微信

niffer dogs are capable of identifying more than seven kinds of drugs and their derivatives.”
Yu said Fun had been working for more than a year and can distinguish five different types of drugs.

Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.
Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack
上海后花园品茶微信s in more than three years; tourist trips made to Xinjiang from home and abroad reached 150 million last year; its econo
my has grown by 40 percent over the past five years; and the Uygur population has increased from about
9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.
It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信
what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a
Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

As a leading developing country, China has notably closed the gap with developed countries in terms of people’s life
