n and creating polic▓y to address the issue.Liang Qiang, 26, began sweeping the scattered snow from his courtyard at first light Wednesday. He was expecting▓ a dozen tourists to dine and rest at his lodgings. ▓Liang is in "agritainment," a trend to incorporate entertainment on farms and in rural tourist areas.Liang is a villager in Shaanxi Province's Liangjiahe, where Xi worked as a rural laborer from 1969 to 1975. He started his business in May 2015, just thre▓e months after President Xi visited the village.During the tour, Xi said revolutionary bases wer

the Party and the army, and that they should ▓not be forgotten, as wisdom and power is obtaine▓d from history."Without the development of▓ old revolutionary bases, we will not be able to achieve a▓ moderately prosperous society," Xi said.Liang has 1▓8 big tables and three small ones in his 100-sq▓uare-meter rural guesthouse. Nearly 200 people can dine under the same roof every day at busy times.He hired six chefs and adjusted the menu to fea▓ture local specialties. High-speed wifi is also available▓ for customers as they are waiting."Net income will exceed 200,000 yuan this year," said Liang, who was a ▓miner with a monthly income of about 5,000 yuan three years ago.Liangjiahe is expected to receive over 900,000 visitors this year, bringing 13 million yuan in ▓revenue. Per capita income will reach 18,000 yuan.Targeted poverty alleviation is the household name for a policy that was put forward by President Xi during his inspection tour to the central province of Hunan in November 2013.Development is t▓he general method to eliminate poverty, and governments in poverty-hit regions should suit their measures to different conditions and help lo▓cals find out ways to shake off poverty▓, he said during the trip.Shibadong is a Miao minority village and was labeled "poor" at the time. Shibadong in Chinese means 18 caves, and there are 18▓ natural karst caves in the village. Scarcity of arable land was the biggest obstacle to local villagers hoping to improve their lives."We are ▓poor in resources, but rich in fascinating culture an▓d landscape," said Gong Haihua, the village head.Inspired by Xi's idea of target▓ed poverty alleviation, the village committee started supporting industries such as breeding, planting▓, Miao embroidery and village tourism, as well as labor export.In cooper▓ation with a rural cooperative, the village arranged for over 66.7 hectares of land elsewhere to be plante▓d with kiwis, a popular fruit.The kiwis b▓ase was expanded this year and helped v▓illagers in other townships to shake off poverty, said Shi Jintong, a township official stationed in Shibad▓ong village.Tourism is booming in Shibadong. The per capita▓ net income of villagers was 3,580 yuan last year, up 115▓ percent from 2013."We really thank general secretary a lot," said Shi Quanyou, a Shibadong resid▓ent, who returned home from outside▓ three years ago and opened the first restaurant ▓for visitors in the village.China is deter▓mined to win the war against poverty, by adopting variou▓s means to reduce poverty, such as e-commerce▓, financing, industries, relocation and improvement of infrastructure.The country expects to achieve its target of lifting 10 million people out of poverty this year and has set the same target for next year.Please scan the QR Code to follow us on InstagramPlease scan the QR Code to follow▓ us on Wechatby Li Baojie, Wang Ruo▓yao BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Local authorities in southwest China are moving to clamp down on▓ food price hikes as the worst drought in de▓cades shows no sign of easing. Authorities in Guiya▓ng, capital of the poverty-stricken mountainous Guizhou pr▓ovince, have indicated they would step up price monitoring and crack down on price gouging. Vegeta▓ble vendors will be fined up to 100,000 yuan (14,▓650 U.S. dollars) if they are found involved in jacking up vegetable prices. The maximum fine for businesses is 1 million yuan. In Kunming, capital of▓ the hardest-hit Yunnan province, the local government is monitoring food prices and supply on a daily basis. Local price control and industry and commerce authorities have launched campai▓gns to crack down on food hoarding and p▓rice gouging. Local governments in their neighboring r▓egions have taken similar measures to preve▓nt huge rises in prices of grain, edible oil, and vegetables. The dry weather has been ravaging southwest China for months, affecting 61.3 million residents and 5 million hectares of crops in Guizhou, Yunnan, Sichuan, C▓hongqing, and Guangxi. The worsening drought has▓ damaged wide swathes of vegetables and sparked shar▓p price hikes. Many vegetable prices have more than doubled. Hou Junfa, a purcha▓sing manager in a hotel in Nanning, capital▓ of Guangxi, said vegetable prices continued to sur▓ge even after the Chinese Lunar New Year when pri▓ces usually fall. Wang Wenying, a wholesaler in Nanning, s▓aid that prices of onion and potato continued to rise b▓ecause of output declines in Yunnan, a main vegetable pro▓ducing region. The price hikes have resulted in increases in household expending. A local resident in Nanning, surnamed Yang, said he spent five yuan more on vegetables than a month ago. Some residen▓ts choose to buy cheaper vegetables to cut household expending. BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- China will put more investment, subsidies, fiscal and▓ policy supports into rural areas this year so as to better coordinate urban and rura▓l development, the central government said Sunday in its first policy document of the year."Working for coordinated development between urban and rural areas is the fundamental requirement of building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way," said the document.The docum▓ent, jointly issued by the Central Committee of the ▓Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council, or the Cabinet, promised to improve the livelihood of rural residents, which it said is one of the main tasks in China's efforts to adjust resi▓dent income distribution system.Expanding ▓rural demand should be the key measure in boostin▓g domestic demand, it said, while developing modern agriculture should be considered as a major task in transforming China's economic growth pattern.It called for more efforts to maintain grain production, increase of farmers' income and good development momentum in rural areas.IM▓PROVING POLICY, STRENGTHENING FINANCIAL▓ SUPPORT TO RURAL AREASThe document said that the central government would continue to improve ▓the policy system to empower and benefit farmers. The government would also continue boosting financial input into ▓the agriculture and rural areas.The document stressed budget expenditure should first suppo▓rt development of the agriculture and rural area, and fixed-asset investment first be channeled into agr▓icultural-related infrastructure and projects in rel▓ation to rural livelihood.More subsidies should be channe▓led to increase the output of grain, potato, highland barley and peanut, as well as the▓ purchase of agricultural machinery, it said.The government would implement more policies for▓ purchasing and stockpiling major agric▓ultural products, including corn, soybean and oilseed▓s, to stabilize prices of major farm produce.More efforts will be made to strengthen financ▓ial services including micro-credit loans and insurance service in rural areas, according to the document.It promised that basic banking services would be available in all villages an▓d towns in the next three years.It calle▓d for more efforts to develop township banks, loa▓n-lending companies, and mutual funds in a bid to guide more capital flowing into the rural financial market.The central government al▓so demanded further expansion of rural cons▓umption market as part of the country's accelerati▓ng measures to boost consumption.The Yarlung Zangpo's dramatic course creates the world's longest and deepest canyon in Tibet.I had read a lot about the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon in Nyingchi pre▓fecture - regarded as the world's longest and deepest, stretching 496 km and averaging more▓ than 5,000 m in depth - and longed for a chance to s▓ee it. I got to fulfill my dream last September,▓ while assigned to work in the Tibet autonomous▓ region's tourism bureau.The Yarlung Zangbo River runs ▓eastwards along the northern foothills of the Himalayas. The lower reaches of the river cut through the mountain range before making a sharp U-▓turn around Namjagbarwa Peak in Pai, Namling county, in eastern Tibet - the starting point of the Grand Canyon.My friends and I head fo▓r Nyingchi, which lies 400 km to the east▓ of Lhasa. From there, we climb Mt Serkyimla, at an altit▓ude of 4,702 m and reach the town of Pailong. The Tibetans with a population of 5,416,021 m▓ostly live in the Tibet Autonomous ▓Region. There are also Tibetan communities in Qi▓nghai, Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan provinces.&n▓bsp;NEW YORK - Many processed foods contain too much salt, and sauces, spreads, and processed mea▓ts are the top offenders, new research shows.People who consume lots of salt are more likely to see their blood pressure rise as they get older, with a correspon▓ding increase in their heart disease risk.Public h▓ealth officials are increasingly looking to the food industry for help in cutting people'▓s salt intake; the United Kingdom and France, for example, have been able to achieve significant reductions in salt consumption throu▓gh industry collaborations, while New Y▓ork City has just launched a campaign t▓o cut US salt intake by 25 percent over the next five years.Similar efforts are now un▓derway in Australia, and some companies have begun ▓to reduce the salt content of some of their products, according to Dr. Jacqueline L. Webster▓ and colleagues from the George Institute ▓for International Health in Sydney, Australia.To help guide such efforts, the researchers gathered da▓ta on the sodium content of 7,221 products in 10 food groups, 33 categories, and 90 subcatego▓ries.According to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, foods were considered to be high in sodium if they con▓tained more than 500 milligrams of sodium for ▓every 100 grams, while foods with sodium contents below 120 milligrams of sodium for every 100 grams were classified as low sodi▓um.The researchers found dramatic variation in salt content within certain foo▓d categories. For example, the saltiest type of hard cheese had six times more sodium than the least salty typ▓e, while there was a 14-fold difference in salt content within the sliced meat category and a 100-fold difference within the frozen potato▓ product category.Sauces and spreads, a▓t 1,283 mg per 100 g, and processed meats, at 846 mg per 100 g, were the categories with the highest average sodium content.LOS ANGELE 鈥揗ovie flops aren't just about losing money. Yes, big budgets that go bust are one consideration. But flops are also ▓about lofty expectations dashed and high pro▓files brought low. They trigger embarrassing catcalls ▓from the peanut gallery and a general▓ whoever-thought-that-was-a-good-idea-in-the-first-place bewilderment.Any judgments ▓of flopitude are necessarily subjective, but h▓ere are 10 movies from the past decade that made those few moviegoers who saw them cringe.

nt, parted ways after 23 years together. It even ki▓lled plans for a Miller-directed version of "Buck Rogers."9. GRINDHOUSE* Release date: April 6, 2007* Estimated cost: $67 million* Dome▓stic gross: $25 millionQuentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez managed to turn twice the filmmaking firepower into half the box office (and a third of the critical praise). With "Grindhouse," what began as an explicit exercise in joyous B-movi▓e cinema homage -- a double bill of '70s-style schlock, one film from each director -- ended up aping its scuzzy genre ancestors a little too closely in the receipts de▓partment. After the three-hour-plus "Grindhouse"▓ opened to a mere $11.6 million, Harvey Wei▓nstein split the film's two parts -- "Death Proof" and "Planet Terror" -- and shuttled them to▓ international markets individually. While that recouped a little of the Weinstein Co.'s ▓money, it incurred the wrath of purists who were angry that the original film had been corrupted. Tarantino and Weinstein are famously loyal to each other, and while the writer-director eventually made good on the losses with the $120 million-grossing "Inglourious Basterds" this year, "Grindhouse" was one instance wher

The Naxi people, who have lived he▓re for many generations, have developed their own cuisine using the rich local ingredients. Th▓eir dishes, with a refreshing flavor intermediate between Han Group and Tibetan, are a must to try if▓ you are visiting Lijiang.Actually, authentic Na▓xi cuisine consists of a number of tasty snack▓s that can be easily found in the s▓treets of Lijiang City. Jidou Liangfen (a kind of jelly mad▓e from chick pea) is one of the favorit▓e snacks of locals, so don't forget to sample it while on your trip.Premier Wen Jiabao made an inspection tour to no▓rthwestern Gansu Province on Saturday and Sunday.
