When the flurry subsided, Berry began to pull the net up and pick carp from it one by one.
Repeating this process one or two times, they had enough carp to deliver to the nearby Kentucky Fish Center owned by An
gie Yu, who also operates Two Rivers Fisheries, the largest Asian carp processor and exporter in the United States.
Berry and Irwin, half-brothers originally from Washington, came to Kentucky to fish for Asian carp in November.
Irwin is a commercial fisherman who has worked all over the world, most recently in Ala
ska during the summer. For three months, he worked 20 – to 22-hour days in Alaskan wate
rs. The pay was good enough to cover a year’s worth of living expenses, but the work was extremely hard.
One day, Irwin read an internet article about Asian carp and commercial fishing in Kentucky, and immediately became interested.

He said Sam’s Club has been gaining strength in the country. The high-end m
embership store that was launched in China in 1996 has about 2 million members nati
onwide. By 2020, there will be 40 such clubs either in operation or in construction in the country. The format ha
s 23 stores currently in 19 cities stocking quality fresh food and membership products.
Globally Walmart has 11,300 stores, with a third of them large stores.
According to Kantar Worldpanel, in 2018 Walmart’s market share was 5.4 percent, an improvement from t
he 5.2 percent in 2017. Last year it opened 33 new stores, including 21 hypermarkets, four Sam‘s Club and eight compact stores.
Jason Yu, general manager of Kantar Worldpanel China, said Walmart has to roll out
more innovations to further improve its operational efficiency and achieve growth through
tions at the Brussels summit, has pledged to intensify discussions on the rules concerning in
dustrial subsidies, a priority for the WTO reform for the EU. This is being seen as a breakthrough by the EU side.
In fact, almost all countries provide subsidies for domestic companies in certain sectors, and i
n most cases, China has given subsidies to Chinese companies in strict accordance with WTO rules as its ultim
ate goal is to achieve complete marketization. Yet intensifying discussions on industrial subsidies and other
sensitive issues, including intellectual property rights protection, is a step that must be taken to not only addre
ss WTO members’ concerns, but also invigorate the organization and the global trading system.
China, US should jointly promote WTO reform
Chen Fengying, a senior researcher in world economy at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations
The Office of the United States Trade Representative seems to have made dr
iving the WTO reform its priority so that Washington can claim the discourse rights in global t
rade mechanisms and lead the process for making new trade rules and establishing a new global trading system.
BEIJING – A recent survey by China’s State Post Bureau said 35.8 percent of delivery workers c
onsidered their occupation “promising” and would like to continue in that position.
The survey consisted of 6,000 delivery people across China mostly born in the 1980s and 1990s.
About 76 percent of the delivery workers are from rural areas, wh
ile nearly 16 percent are from towns or counties, according to the survey.
Major sources of stress for delivery workers include low wages and insufficient benefits, lack of understanding of t
heir job from customers and the public, long working hours and little chances of promotion, the survey said.
Most of those surveyed earn less than 5,000 yuan ($743) per month but gen
erally gain more during the annual Double 11 online shopping spree in No
vember, during which over 80 percent of the country’s delivery workers handle more than 200 packages per day.
China’s express delivery industry is rapidly developing, with around 3 million delivery workers.
”Delivery worker” was added to the revision of the national occupation list of China in 2015, meaning it has been recognized by the state as an occupation.
If Europe’s leaders, diplomats and security professionals had a vote in the 2020 US presidential elections, it doesn’t see
m likely they’d give it to President Trump. At least, that’s how it seemed at the 2019 Munich Security Conference.
Hundreds of dignitaries crammed into tight corridors, moving between the modest meeting halls of Munich’s Bayerischer Hof Hotel.
The event has grown in recent years. As prime ministers and presidents rub shoulders wit
h CEO’s and policy wonks, conversations straddle global differences and attempt to shape the world order.

It is an odd, almost old-fashioned mix. It’s rare at global summits these days that repo
rters can mingle with the people they cover and even engage them in casual conversation.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg surprised me, praising my sturdy weather-beating boots and trou
sers. He laughed when I told him he was lucky inside. I was outside, the sun was blazing and, frankly, I was baking.
In 1993, Sun Shen Health Products set a record annual sales of 1.3 billion yuan. Since then, China’s health products market has entered a period of crazy growth. A large number of health prod
ucts companies have sprung up like bamboo shoots after a spring rain, among them, Jianjian, Hualin and Infinite Pole Company.
At the end of 2018, a submission by Dr. Clove, the domestic mass health media, put the Kwon Kin Group to dust. The day be
fore, Mr. Shu Yuhui, the veteran of Kwon Kin, who had an infinite scene, became a prisoner the next day. Quan Jian’s collapse also sounded the trumpet to
crack down on all kinds of disorders in the health care market. Nowadays, Quan Jian’s “fire therapy” and Waring’s “el
ectrotherapy” have become notorious street mice. Infinite pole, as the first health product in direct sales at present, ha
s also been exposed many cases of victims taking infinite pole products to death.
Questions about the infinite pole have become a hot topic in the current society. In
the case of girl victims of myocardial damage in Shaanxi, there is a phenomenon that the infinite pole pr
oducts are sold in the name of health products without being registered by the Drug Administration. In the process of y
oung people suffering from epilepsy in Chongqing, the false propaganda of sales staff of Infinite Pole Company is the main cu
lprit. When one tragedy was exposed, the company now faces 64 lawsuits.
Recently, reporters visited infinite branch c
ompanies and stores in Shenzhen. These stores and outlets no lo
nger exist, and residents around them also expressed doubts about the products of infinite company.
Not only is offline hit, but the infinite pole of online channels is absolutely out of ammunition: Jingdong, Suning, M
erchandise Club and other e-commerce platforms have stepped down endless products one after another. On January
19, the infinite company, which has been making a lot of trouble in the city, ushered in the investigation of the case f
iled by the Xi’an Industrial and Commercial Bureau. Faced with the public’s queries and even the public’s an
ger, I wonder if Infinite Company will apologize and pay for the tragedy caused by its mistakes.
