at the end of the semester. “The key knowledge is clearly pinpointed, and I make notes.
When the end of the semester arrives, I read it again. It is especially helpful for my exam,” she said.
Wang, the history teacher, said the document iThe Jiangsu teachers have all been given free lodgings next to the scho
ol, so they are close to their students in class and in life. The school also provides societies where the students are fre
e to develop hobbies, such as learning piano or Tibetan calligraphy.s designed to help students study independently. The
core contents still come from the textbook, but they are listed in a more straightforward way.
“After reading it, the students gain a basic understanding of the things they need to research about the subject,” he said.
“Only when they form such a basis can they better absorb the knowledge comm

Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent
weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.
One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft
er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.
He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.
While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate
d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron
tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.
Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki
stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.
Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.
The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be
ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.
Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit
y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.
It’s hard to say that China entered a new cycle of credit expansion,” said Zhang Ming, chief eco
nomist at Ping An Securities. “For the whole year, the overall financing growth and money supply is expected to stabilize.”
Fast credit expansion means higher pressure on companies to repay debt and interest, and the space for sustainable credit growth i
s limited, given the current leverage level. Total outstanding debt has exceeded 250 percent of GDP, Zhang said.
The good news is that credit has been channeled effectively into the production sector, such as manuf
acturing and high-tech, and the healthier credit structure can support the overall economic r
estructuring reform, said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central bank’s statistics and analysis department.
