first_imgHoping to entice more foreign scientists to work in China, the Chinese government has unveiled regulations that greatly expand the number of talent programs, the recipients of which are eligible for favorable immigration status. But the research culture in China would deter many potential recruits, experts say.Previously, permanent resident permits were limited to applicants to the Thousand Talents plan, a scheme launched in 2008 by the Communist Party of China directed at attracting highly skilled scientists and entrepreneurs, and a handful of other cases. Other researchers largely enter under annual work permits or even on tourist visas; the bulk of recruits are Chinese educated overseas who had relinquished their passports upon obtaining foreign citizenship. Under the new regulation, awardees in an additional 55 programs will now be eligible to obtain permanent resident permits, or so-called Chinese green cards. Most of the programs affected are province- or city-level talent plans. Also included are a few Chinese Academy of Sciences programs, including the well-known One Hundred Talents plan.“Setting up a talent visa category under the law shows that our talent policy is more open and more clearly directed at attracting talent,” former Chinese Academy of Personnel Science President Wu Jiang told People’s Daily in a 25 January news report. But others say that immigration policy is only one in a long list of considerations for researchers contemplating a post in China.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Cong Cao, an expert on Chinese science policy at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, says that it’s unclear how much time awardees would need to spend in China to maintain a Chinese green card under the new regulation. Many returnee and foreign researchers in China hold concurrent posts, shuttling back and forth from countries like the United States and United Kingdom. Tax concerns could be another thorny issue, Cao says: China taxes long-term residents on worldwide income.Another potential obstacle to recruitment is China’s research culture, which is shaped by personal and political connections and a lack of tenure at most Chinese institutions. Even with favorable immigration policies, the Thousand Talents plan has struggled. That program has brought in more than 4100 scientists and entrepreneurs since 2008, according to People’s Daily. But experts have argued that the Thousand Talents program is more successful at recruiting top-notch businesspeople than scientists, and the Chinese government hasn’t revealed how many scientists who do come are on part-time posts.“I don’t think that the visa is a critical issue,” says a U.S.-based scientist who spends summers as a visiting professor in China. Senior scientists “really value tenured positions and are used to the system here,” he said of the United States. “I would feel very insecure if I were to take a professorship in China and give up my professorship here.”last_img read more


first_imgLast Monday, the Trump administration released its first National Security Strategy (NSS) to the public. The document dubbed China and Russia as “revisionist powers”: threats to the United States and its security goals. China, in particular, was singled out. As a senior Trump administration official noted, “China is seen as a strategic competitor because China competes effectively across the political, economic, military, and informational domains in ways probably not duplicated by our other competitors.”According to noted international relations scholar Paul Kennedy last month, in addition to the United States, there are three other great powers. While Russia and China are seen as potentially hostile to American interests, there are any opportunities to be found in the document for India, the fourth great power, to enhance its relations with the United States.Geopolitically, the NSS places the greatest emphasis for American interests on the Indo-Pacific region, an area that includes India. It is interesting to note that the NSS uses this term, instead of Asia-Pacific, indicating that the United States has as deep an interest in South Asia as it does in East Asia. The document explicitly includes India in its definition of the Indo-Pacific, which stretches “from the west coast of India to the western shores of the United States, [and is]the most populous and economically dynamic part of the world.” In fact, about half of the world’s population lives within this Indo-Pacific region.Read it at The Diplomat Related Itemslast_img read more

first_imgAn Indian American couple who fled to India has been indicted in what Preet Bharara, the United States attorney for Manhattan, dubbed “one of the largest and most brazen frauds ever committed against the City of New York.”Reddy Allen and Padma Allen and their company, TechnoDyne L.L.C., of Wayne, N.J., are among 11 people indicted in New York City’s $600 million CityTime project intended to modernize the timekeeping and payroll operations for more than 160,000 city employees.According to the indictment, the city paid $600 million to Science Applications International, two of whose employees in turn directed $400 million to TechnoDyne, in return for $15 million in kickbacks. Technodyne is accused of paying $75 million to two subcontractors, who paid $25 million in kickbacks to Mark Mazer, a New York City consultant responsible for quality assurance on the project, who allegedly steered the city’s contracts.

first_imgAfter 25 years of consecutive run, the BJP on Thursday lost the Panaji Assembly constituency to Congress’s Atanasio Monserrate by 1,758 votes. The seat was represented by the late Goa Chief Minister and former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for a maximum of the period since 1994.While Mr. Monserrate polled 8,748 votes, the BJP candidate polled 6,990 votes. AAP’s Valmiki Naik and Subhash Velingkar of the Goa Suraksha Manch polled 236 and 516 votes, respectively. “This is a victory of the Congress party and a vote for the development of the State capital, which it was deprived of, for the last so many years,” Mr. Monserrate said after the result was announced. The bypoll in Panaji Assembly constituency was held following the death of MLA and Chief Minister Parrikar on March 17 following a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer. Mr. Parrikar had first won in Panaji in 1994 and retained it until 2014 when he was inducted in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Cabinet. In his absence, the seat was represented twice by his aide Mr. Kuncalienkar. On his return to State politics in 2017, Manohar Parrikar was once again elected as Panaji MLA in a bypoll held following his taking over as Chief Minister of BJP-led coalition government. The BJP’s campaign had received a setback after party workers resented the manner in which the late Parrikar’s elder son Utpal was snubbed by the party’s State leadership in his bid for the ticket for the Panaji bypoll. In his FB post on Thursday, Utpal Parrikar said that the loss of Panaji seat was very painful.“Having said that, I am only reminded of words uttered by our late leader Atalji when BJP was reduced to two seats in Lok Sabha. “Darkness will be dispelled, Sun will rise and Lotus will bloom”. In democracy, collective wisdom always lies with the people. Hard work is needed to win back people’s trust,” said Mr.Utpal.last_img read more


first_imgUpper Caste and Other Backward Classes legislators and leaders with an RSS background were favoured as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expanded his Cabinet on on Wednesday, his first since March 2017 when the BJP-led alliance formed a majority government in the State.Twenty-three ministers, including six Cabinet ministers, were administered oath by Governor Anandiben Patel at the Raj Bhavan.Out of the 23, upper castes dominated with 11 Ministers, while the OBCs who form over 40% of the State;s population, had nine representatives.The remaining three were Dalits, who make up 21% of Uttar Pradesh’s electorate.While four Ministers of State (Independent charge) were promoted to the Cabinet rank, two fresh faces were also inducted. These were Kamal Rani Varun, a Dalit (Pasi) MLA from Ghatampur in Kanpur, and Ram Naresh Agnihotri, a Brahmin MLA from Bhogaon in Mainpuri.Ms. Varun, a first-time MLA, is a former councillor and pracharak of Seva Bharti, an RSS affiliate. Mr. Agnihotri was an RSS pracharak during 1980-82.Suresh Rana and Mahendra Singh (both Thakurs), and Anil Rajbhar and Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary (both OBCs) were promoted to the Cabinet.The elevation of Mr. Rajbhar is in line with the BJP’s strategy to project him as the leader of the Rajbhar community, which is politically active in eastern U.P.last_img read more

I would love to have him.”Once Wade completes the waiver formality, he’ll be the latest new, high-profile player to join the Cavs, who traded for All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas, signed former league MVP Derrick Rose and added two strong wing defenders in Jae Crowder and Jeff Green, wing players who may help them defend the Warriors if those teams get back to a fourth straight Finals matchup.Thomas isn’t expected to play until January because of a hip injury, but until he returns the Cavs have plenty of firepower in James, Wade, Rose and All-Star Kevin Love, who could thrive as Cleveland’s No. 2 scoring threat now that Kyrie Irving is in Boston.Wade agreed to a contract buyout earlier this week with the Bulls, who signed him before last season as a free agent.The Cavaliers emerged Tuesday as front-runners over the Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder to land the 35-year-old Wade, who many feel say has plenty of game left.ADVERTISEMENT He’ll now have a shot at another championship — his fourth — while playing alongside James, whom he has been friends with since they broke into the league together in 2003. When James left Cleveland as a free agent in 2010 and signed with Miami, much of his reason for leaving his home state was a chance to play with Wade and Chris Both.Wade played his first 13 seasons in Miami, leaving in the summer of 2016 to sign a two-year deal with the Bulls. But the Bulls are in a rebuilding mode after trading Jimmy Butler this summer, and instead of paying Wade $23.8 million to play for what will likely be a struggling team they agreed this weekend to buy him out and let him find a better situation.In an interview with AP, Wade said that whatever decision he makes would be “a pure basketball decision and I’ll make the one that I feel fits me best at this point in my career and with what I feel I have to offer a team that needs what I have to offer.”Following practice on Tuesday, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson said Wade would be a “great” fit in Cleveland.“He’s a guy that’s proven, not just individually, but a team that won three championships,” Thompson said. “He’s pretty familiar with most of the guys on our team. … He’s always been a good locker room guy. We’ve never heard anything bad.“It would be great for our team to have another championship-mentality player.”Wade has averaged 23.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 14 seasons. He averaged 18.3, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the Bulls.One of the game’s premiere closers in the postseason, Wade has averaged 22.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 172 playoff games. Wade, a 12-time All-Star, is expected to clear waivers on Wednesday and then join the Cavs, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be completed until Wade goes through the waiver process.In Cleveland, Wade will be reunited with James, his close friend, former Miami teammate and a player he confided in before signing with his hometown Chicago Bulls last year.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWade and James won two NBA titles together during four seasons with the Heat and will now chase another one with the Cavs, who have been revamped after losing to Golden State in last season’s Finals.On Monday, James said he would “love” to play again with Wade.

But in the second half, the coaches allowed us to settle down and think of the things we felt we needed to do with our defense and that’s how we got the victory,” said Abueva in Filipino.Abueva finished with nine points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks to back up Vic Manuel, who had 18 points, five boards, and two assists.“I’m just doing my role as a veteran of this team. I’m just trying to show what I can do and double my efforts,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Regular fixtures in the playoffs, the Aces plummeted in the standings in the 2016-17 season.Alaska suffered an early exit in the quarterfinals courtesy of eventual runner-up Ginebra in its bid for a third straight finals appearance in the Philippine Cup last year.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThings didn’t get better from there as the Aces figured in the bottom half of the standings in the import-laden conferences where they suffered a 13-game slide.But that was then, and after two losses to start the new season, 2018 was nothing but great for Alaska.
