standing was built about mutual opportunities, since when I have also been there,” Samuels said.
As the gateway to the industrial heartland of northeast China, Liao

“The vice-chancellor of Surrey University, Professor Max Lu, is a graduate of
North Eastern University in Shenyang, and retains strong alumni links. My visit there helped strengthen e

The safety of mountaineers in China’s recently concluded Qomola
ngma climbing season, which saw 241 climbers scale the peak from the Chinese side, was ensured throu
gh good management practices, the government of the Tibet autonomous region said on Friday.
Twelve Chinese mountaineers, 21 Chinese guides, 94 foreign mountaineers and 108 Sherpa guides
made it to the summit from April 10 to May 30, according to the Tibet Mountaineering Association.
Two alpinists, however, have become the victims on the north face of the
mountain in Tibet’s Dingri county, resulting from the extreme physical demands.
“Mountaineering is a high-risk sport, and safety is the priority,” said Pema Trinley, the association’s deputy director.
ted trash was collected over the region’s spring climbing season. In 2019, 8.21 metric tons of various d
omestic waste and 2.46 metric tons of sanitary sewage was collected after the mountaineering season,” said Tashi Gyatso.
According to Nyima Tsering, the head of the region’s sport bureau,
the Tibet Mountaineering Guide School has been playing an important role in mountain rescue.
“Founded in 1999, it is world’s second and China’s first such school, for training mountaineeri
ng talent,” said Tsering, vice-chairman of the China Mountaineering Association. “Teams from
the school have performed 29 high-altitude rescues in recent decades, and have set the rescue record above 8,500 meters.”

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.
Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.
He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg
ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.
“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th
e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.
This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co
nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.
Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.
China will offer customized data services for disaster prevention throug
h its Fengyun meteorological satellites for more countries along the Belt and Road, said a
senior official of the China Meteorological Administration’s National Satellite Meteorological Center.
The services will be provided based on the results of a survey of 81 countries. By the end
of April, 22 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Libya and Sudan, had responded to the survey.
All of the respondents said they wanted to install the application software platforms
of the Fengyun satellites for weather forecasting, as well as climate and environment monitoring.
They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainf
all, droughts, dust storms, heavy fog and lightning, in addition to training courses on F
engyun meteorological satellite data analysis, remote-sensing applications and data collection.

led elderly population, including psychological needs, so the services will aim precisely at those most in need,” she said.
Xi Huan, vice-president of Beijing Hospital, said major medical institutions need to m
ake more efforts to improve services for the elderly, including the promotion of disease prevention edu
cation and increased follow-up visits for elderly patients who have been discharged from the hospital.
“Big hospitals should provide more help for elderly patients, and more follow-up nursing services after they leave the ho
spital, so they can get timely help if problems occur at home or at community health centers,” he said.

Chinese students are increasingly diversifying their choices of destinations for overseas stud
ies, with more students choosing to go to the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, a new report showed.
