The 1,000-day countdown — launched near the iconic Bird’s Nest and the
Water Cube, both 2008 venues — underlined Beijing’s focus on sustainability in prepa
ring a second time for an Olympic extravaganza by reusing existing resources built for the Summer Games.
According to the 2022 Winter Olympics organizing committee, 11 of the 13 v
enues needed in Beijing’s downtown, where all ice sports will be staged, will use existing faciliti
es built for 2008. Repurposing projects, such as transforming the Water Cube (which hosted swimming in 2008) into a

The plane, chartered from Miami Air International, was attemp
ting to land at about 9:40 pm local time amid thunder and lightning when it slid off the runway and
came to rest in the shallow water of the river, authorities and passengers said.
The military base is on the western bank of the St. Johns River about 8
miles (12.87 km) south of central Jacksonville, about 350 miles (563.27 km) north of Miami.
Miami Air International is a charter airline operating a fleet of the Boeing 737-800, diffe

The ongoing International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 in Beijing is all about gar
dening, but it doesn’t shy away from high technology that improves visitors’ experience.
To provide visitors with information services, ticket purchasing, parking, travel routes, introductions to scenic sp
ots, medical services, performance arrangements and traveling tips, a mobile phone app called Expo 2019 was developed.
It’s like having a tour guide at hand, said Guo Ziliang, an official at the Beijing World Horticultural Expo Coordination Bureau, the expo’s organizer.
“The app shows people how to conveniently and efficiently make their way through the park,” he said. “It also helps improve the park’s reception capacity.”
The 162-day expo, from April 29 to Oct 7, is expected to receive a total of 16 million visitors.
The app, available in bilingual versions-English and Chinese-can be downloaded for free from online app stores.

k Report presented recently by Premier Li Keqiang setting a growth target of 6-6.5 percent for 2019.
For China doubters, this is a “gotcha” moment. After all, the premier’s grow
th target implies a 40 percent deceleration from the “miracle” trend. This seems to vin
dicate warnings of the dreaded “middle-income trap”－the tendency of fast-growing developing economies to re
vert to a much weaker growth trajectory just when they get their first whiff of prosperity.
The early work on this phenomenon was precise in terms of what to expect: as per capita inco

ained growth deceleration of around 2.5 percentage points can be expected. With China having hit that income thr
eshold in 2017, according to International Monetary Fund estimates, its post-2011 slowdown looks all the more ominous.
