hey say they were sexually abused by sts, then silence

Lucie was just 16 when she became involved with a Catholic religious community after attending a holiday camp in Switzerland. At the time, she told CNN

,she was “very, very, very alone” and looking for friends and affection.
What she found at first was “really like a family

,” she said. But two years later — by which time she was preparing to become an “oblate,” a lay person affiliated with a rel

igious order — she says a pattern of sexual abuse by a charismatic priest who she considered her spiritual father began.

It took 15 years for Lucie — a pseudonym used at her request to protect her family — to realize that what she says she experienced over several months in the 1990

s was abuse. At the time, just 18 years old, she felt “disgusted” by the physical intimacy she says the priest for

ced on her but also wracked by guilt and powerless to stop him.
“It was like automatic you know. He wan

ted to go to the end — to ejaculation — and I was just like an object for him and I had a feeling he did this a lot of times,” she said.

Market expectations for interest rate cuts have been rising in

 China after Spring Festival. Before embarking on their next move in interest rate reform, however, policymakers need to assess dom

estic macroeconomic conditions in order to reduce financing costs. It is more urgent to let the financial market determine the lending rate, Sun said.

“We hope (policy fine-tuning) will not surprise the market when it is introduced,” Sun said.

Communication with other countries is also needed before launching new policies or introdu

cing creative monetary policy tools, and “the PBOC has good communication mechanisms with other c

entral banks including the US Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank”, Sun said.

Last year, the PBOC removed some constraints on credit, including liquidity in

jection through cutting the reserve requirement ratio four times and capital rep

lenishment by allowing commercial banks to issue perpetual bonds, which have no maturity rate, he said.

Chinese commercial banks, however, are still using the one-year lending rate of 4.35 percent — th

e rate commercial banks charge businesses — set by the central bank in 2015. It is higher than in

terbank market rates or the interest rates banks have been paying to the central bank of 3.05 to 3.30 percent.

He anticipated that the plan would further connect the

echnology sectors of Hong Kong and the mainland, facilitating more career opportuniti

es for Hong Kong local talent as well as offering a larger market for knowledge transfer.

Tam Yiu-chung, a Hong Kong member of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the country’s top legislat

ure, estimated that the plan would lay out development priorities for the area, and the key tasks each city should carry out.

Hong Kong will thus have a clearer direction for future development, and better understand how it can fully contribute, Tam said.

The Greater Bay Area encompasses Hong Kong and Macao, as well as nine cities in Guangdon

g province: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Dongguan, Huizhou, Zhongshan, Foshan, Zhaoqing and Jiangmen.

In 2017, the 11 cities produced one-eighth of China’s gross domestic product while containin

g only 5 percent of the nation’s population and only 0.6 percent of China’s total landmass.

Britney Spears Canceled All Singing Shows Britney Spears

Britney Spears posted on social networking website on May 5 that she would cancel all new concerts. The reason was that his father was seriously ill and hospitalized.

So she decided heavily to cancel the “Domination” singing show and devote the rest of her time to her family. Britney also said she had been looking forward to seeing everyone on the show and was heartbroken.

Britney Spears:

I don’t know where to start, because it’s too hard for me to talk about. I can’t perform my new “Domination” singing show.

I’ve been looking forward to this rookie for a year, and I hope to see all of you, so this decision breaks my heart. However, my family has always been my first priority.

So that’s the choice I have to make. A few months ago, my father was hospitalized and passed through the ghost gates. We are all grateful to him for surviving.

But there is still a long way to go to recover. I have to make tough decisions, and now I will focus all my attention and energy on my family.

I hope you all understand me. Ticket refund please log on my website. In the meantime, I sincerely thank you for your prayers and support for my family. Thank you, love you.

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of

According to the Tianfu Morning Post, Zhou Dongping, a lawyer of Chengdu Taihe Tai Law Firm, said:

“According to the relevant provisions, the number of days of annual leave that

should not be taken can be compensated by three times the daily wage.”

About half of workers enjoy paid annual leave

As for holidays, there is a widely circulated saying: “Europeans work for better holidays, while Chinese people

spend their holidays for better work.”

As early as 1936, France established relevant laws and became the first

country in the world to establish a paid annual leave system.

Until 1995, the Chinese also had the same rights. The Labor Law, which was

formally implemented that year, stipulated that workers who worked

continuously for more than one year were entitled to paid annual leave.

By 2008, the Regulations on Annual Vacation with Pay for Employees were promulgated and implemented, which

stipulated the specific number of vacation days: if the cumulative work of employees has been completed for less than one year and less than 10 years, the

annual vacation time will be 5 days; if the work has been completed for less than 10

years and 20 years, the annual vacation

time will be 10 days; if the work has been completed for 20 years, the annual vacation time will be 15 days

Up to now, it has been more than ten years since the promulgation of the

Regulations on Annual Leave with Pay for Employees, but the implementation is not satisfactory. According to Nanfang.com:

Since 2012, Zhao Lihang has worked in a clothing factory in Baoding, Hebei

Province. During her six years of work, she has never heard of the term “paid annual vacation” or enjoyed this

treatment. “In our industry, overtime pay is enough. If there is no paid annual vacation, there will be no such thing.”

Xiao Huang, who works in Beijing Branch of a daily chemical company in Zhejiang Province, knows that the head

office stipulates paid annual leave, but the leave must be approved by the head of the branch company. The head of the

branch company usually does not approve the leave, so he has not asked for paid annual leave. According to his wife’s response: “The day after I gave birth, the

company urged him to go to work and asked for leave without approval, and then withheld 400 yuan.”

Survey data from several authoritative bodies confirm the above cases:

The annual survey conducted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Affairs in 60 cities shows that more than

half of the employees enjoy paid annual leave, and the proportion of those who take leave increases year by year. But in general, the implementation of paid

annual leave system is not ideal, there are still a considerable number of enterprises have not implemented paid annual leave.

A survey of 2552 workers conducted by the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

showed that 40.1% of respondents said they did not have paid annual leave.

The Social Survey Center of China Youth Daily once conducted a social survey of

4,325 people. 50.4% of the respondents said that their units never took paid vacations.

The data also show that the implementation of paid annual leave is better mainly for Party and government

organs, institutions, large state-owned enterprises

and foreign-funded enterprises,

while private enterprises

and small and medium-sized

enterprises are relatively poor.

Is fame to be only for the ancients?

Wang Wei
A MESSAGE TO COMMISSIONER LI AT ZIZHOU
From ten thousand valleys the trees touch heaven;
On a thousand peaks cuckoos are calling;
And, after a night of mountain rain,
From each summit come hundreds of silken cascades.
…If girls are asked in tribute the fibre they weave,
Or farmers quarrel over taro fields,
Preside as wisely as Wenweng did….
Is fame to be only for the ancients?


Wang Wei
A VIEW OF THE HAN RIVER
With its three southern branches reaching the Chu border,
And its nine streams touching the gateway of Jing,
This river runs beyond heaven and earth,
Where the colour of mountains both is and is not.
The dwellings of men seem floating along
On ripples of the distant sky —
These beautiful days here in Xiangyang
Make drunken my old mountain heart!


Wang Wei
MY RETREAT AT MOUNT ZHONGNAN
My heart in middle age found the Way.
And I came to dwell at the foot of this mountain.
When the spirit moves, I wander alone
Amid beauty that is all for me….
I will walk till the water checks my path,
Then sit and watch the rising clouds —
And some day meet an old wood-cutter
And talk and laugh and never return.


Meng Haoran
A MESSAGE FROM LAKE DONGTIN
TO PREMIER ZHANG
Here in the Eighth-month the waters of the lake
Are of a single air with heaven,
And a mist from the Yun and Meng valleys
Has beleaguered the city of Youzhou.
I should like to cross, but I can find no boat.
…How ashamed I am to be idler than you statesmen,
As I sit here and watch a fisherman casting
And emptily envy him his catch.


Meng Haoran
ON CLIMBING YAN MOUNTAIN WITH FRIENDS
While worldly matters take their turn,
Ancient, modern, to and fro,
Rivers and mountains are changeless in their glory
And still to be witnessed from this trail.
Where a fisher-boat dips by a waterfall,
Where the air grows colder, deep in the valley,
The monument of Yang remains;
And we have wept, reading the words.


 

Throughout this dynasty no one had painted horses

Du Fu

A DRAWING OF A HORSE BY GENERAL CAO

AT SECRETARY WEI FENG’S HOUSE

Throughout this dynasty no one had painted horses

Like the master-spirit, Prince Jiangdu —

And then to General Cao through his thirty years of fame

The world’s gaze turned, for royal steeds.

He painted the late Emperor’s luminous white horse.

For ten days the thunder flew over Dragon Lake,

And a pink-agate plate was sent him from the palace-

The talk of the court-ladies, the marvel of all eyes.

The General danced, receiving it in his honoured home

After this rare gift, followed rapidly fine silks

From many of the nobles, requesting that his art

Lend a new lustre to their screens.

…First came the curly-maned horse of Emperor Taizong,

Then, for the Guos, a lion-spotted horse….

But now in this painting I see two horses,

A sobering sight for whosoever knew them.

They are war- horses. Either could face ten thousand.

They make the white silk stretch away into a vast desert.

And the seven others with them are almost as noble

Mist and snow are moving across a cold sky,

And hoofs are cleaving snow-drifts under great trees-

With here a group of officers and there a group of servants.

See how these nine horses all vie with one another-

The high clear glance, the deep firm breath.

…Who understands distinction? Who really cares for art?

You, Wei Feng, have followed Cao; Zhidun preceded him.

…I remember when the late Emperor came toward his Summer Palace,

The procession, in green-feathered rows, swept from the eastern sky —

Thirty thousand horses, prancing, galloping,

Fashioned, every one of them, like the horses in this picture….

But now the Imperial Ghost receives secret jade from the River God,

For the Emperor hunts crocodiles no longer by the streams.

Where you see his Great Gold Tomb, you may hear among the pines

A bird grieving in the wind that the Emperor’s horses are gone.

What are you thinking of, old friend? The wildgeese never answer me.

Du Fu
REMEMBERING MY BROTHERS ON A MOONLIGHT NIGHT
A wanderer hears drums portending battle.
By the first call of autumn from a wildgoose at the border,
He knows that the dews tonight will be frost.
…How much brighter the moonlight is at home!
O my brothers, lost and scattered,
What is life to me without you?
Yet if missives in time of peace go wrong —
What can I hope for during war?


Du Fu
TO LI BAI AT THE SKY SEND
A cold wind blows from the far sky….
What are you thinking of, old friend?
The wildgeese never answer me.
Rivers and lakes are flooded with rain.
…A poet should beware of prosperity,
Yet demons can haunt a wanderer.
Ask an unhappy ghost, throw poems to him
Where he drowned himself in the Milo River.


Du Fu
A FAREWELL AT FENGJI STATION TO GENERAL YAN
This is where your comrade must leave you,
Turning at the foot of these purple mountains….
When shall we lift our cups again, I wonder,
As we did last night and walk in the moon?
The region is murmuring farewell
To one who was honoured through three reigns;
And back I go now to my river-village,
Into the final solitude.


Du Fu
ON LEAVING THE TOMB OF PREMIER FANG
Having to travel back now from this far place,
I dismount beside your lonely tomb.
The ground where I stand is wet with my tears;
The sky is dark with broken clouds….
I who played chess with the great Premier
Am bringing to my lord the dagger he desired.
But I find only petals falling down,
I hear only linnets answering.


Du Fu
A NIGHT ABROAD
A light wind is rippling at the grassy shore….
Through the night, to my motionless tall mast,
The stars lean down from open space,
And the moon comes running up the river.
…If only my art might bring me fame
And free my sick old age from office! —
Flitting, flitting, what am I like
But a sand-snipe in the wide, wide world!


Du Fu
ON THE GATE-TOWER AT YOUZHOU
I had always heard of Lake Dongting —
And now at last I have climbed to this tower.
With Wu country to the east of me and Chu to the south,
I can see heaven and earth endlessly floating.
…But no word has reached me from kin or friends.
I am old and sick and alone with my boat.
North of this wall there are wars and mountains —
And here by the rail how can I help crying?
