China – The Environment And Quality Of Life

China will find new ways to boost growth, through high-end consumption, innovation, green and low-carbon technology
Liu Xiaoming

However, growth will amount to nothing if it comes at the expense of the environment.

China recognises this,and will encourage green finance, energy efficiency, environmental protection, clean production and clean-energy industries.

We will establish agencies to manage state-owned natural-resource assets and monitor ecosystems.

We will strengthen environmental control on water, air and land pollution and

bring polluters to account.

High-quality growth in a major country with a population of 1.3 billion will be key for sustainable development in the world.

There are a whole range of digital marketing activities that a small business can utilise to help grow its audience online.

One of the lower-cost methods of doing this is by email marketing, despite this method having been around for quite some time.

Even with social media more widely used, email marketing can still be hugely effective.

An effective email marketing campaign is more than sending weekly or monthly newsletters.

By creating engaging marketing campaigns, you can gain more email contacts, more website visits and repeated visitors all at once, strengthening your relationship with existing customers and attracting

new potential customers.

Maintaining and growing your email contacts is vital.

Here are some top tips for getting the right email addresses and forging new relationships with audiences – without having to spend huge amounts

of money.

Fifteen things that have the potential to increase cancer risk

Take a look at the World Health Organization’s statistics on leading causes of death worldwide. It will tell you that the more advanced a country is, the greater your chances of dying of cancer.

Advancements in medicine and healthcare have brought down infectious diseases which used to be the mass killers of past. But various types of cancers have filled in the slots. Lung and respiratory tract cancers are now the second biggest killer in the United States right after heart disease.

 

FIFTEEN THINGS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO INCREASE CANCER RISK

Take the case of fluoride. This substance in toothpaste is supposed to reduce cavities, but people who have high amounts of fluoride in their drinking water have been known to develop fluorosis, a degenerative condition affecting teeth and bones.

Fluoride’s possible link to a type of bone cancer called osteosarcoma is occasionally brought into media attention, only to be shot down with the justification that conclusive evidence is lacking. Fluoride is added to drinking water supplies in several parts of the US despite an outcry against it, and fluoride toothpastes continue to be recommended.

Another cancer-causing agent in toothpaste is triclosan, an antibiotic substance added to ensure dental hygiene. On reacting with chlorinated water, it forms chloroform, which is a known hepatotoxin.

Although triclosan exposure for over six months is known to cause hepatic tumors in rodents, whether this compound directly causes liver tumors or just aids their development is still under speculation. However, it is a relief that many toothpaste companies, including Colgate, are reformulating their products excluding triclosan.

SkyWay has a technology that aligns with The University of Indonesia 🇮🇩 the vision of green transportation,

Skyway 21st Century Rail Transportation

The development plan was initiated by signing a MoU between UI and PT. SkyWay Technologies Indonesia. It took place at the University of Indonesia campus in Depok, West Java.

Muhammad Anis, UI Rector said at the MoU event, – “We are glad and believe to be a partner of SkyWay Indonesia, because this is a new technology that Indonesia needs as a transportation solution. SkyWay has a technology that aligns with UI’s vision of green transportation, without using fossil fuels, its development without cutting trees and using renewable energy generation. We hope the master plan form is completed by the end of this year,” he added.

SkyWay elevated train construction is to reduce the number of vehicles that enter the campus site. Previously UI planned to build a monorail but it was considered inefficient because of high costs.

Madinatul Fadhilah, country’s Director of PT. SkyWay Technologies Indonesia, comments, – “Today, it is the first step of our history in Indonesia. Our collaboration with UI will be the benchmark for all the projects that we are going to implement in Indonesia. The Rector was very grateful that we could start collaboration to implement this technology at the University and hoped these technologies would be implemented all over Indonesia.

For the first stage, we are preparing a 4.75 km double-track route for unibus at the University of Indonesia. It will have about 6,000-passenger ridership in peak hours. UI hopes that we can implement the SkyWay as the main transportation in campus, so it will be able to reduce air pollution and rise up UI green metric (international rating). They want to arrange coverage of 26 faculties (5 of them are public and connected to the UI Hospital, neighboring Depok City & Jakarta City).

This implementation is also supported by all the alumni of the University of Indonesia. They are ready to support us as our strategic partners in the government (permit & certification), Educational Programs Committee and in financing.

This week we will prepare our working group and next Monday will start to work on preparing the preliminary data, feasibility study, society awareness (we will create the SkyWay Station Design Competition) and a fundraising program. On November 15, 2017, we will arrange the Seminar “Transport of the Future”, determine the Award to the Winner of the Station Design Competition, and launch the fundraising program.

In this Seminar, Prof. Anatoly Yunitskiy as the SkyWay Technologies General Designer, Prof. Muhammad Anis as the UI Rector, officials from the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of National Development Planning, Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises and some other related Ministries will be our keynote speakers”.
