According to Asahi Shi上海夜网 annual survey ahead of

 Constitution Day on May 3, doubts over constitutional revision have increased.

On the one hand, a large majority of the respondents said they don‘t see any upsu上海夜网

上海夜网女神会所On the other hand, when asked if Article 9 should be amended, 64 percent of the respondents

said “no”, up from 63 percent last year, while only 28 percent said “yes”, down from 32 percent last year.

And Yomiuri Shimbun’s nationwide opinion poll in July showed people are more concerne上海夜网

l security for citizens, with only 7 percent saying constitutional amendment is the most important issue for them.

Moreover, apart from heeding the call of a majority of Japanese citizens, Abe and the LDP sh上海夜网

ould also take into consideration the opinions of Japan’s neighbors such as China, the Republic of Kor

上海夜网ean and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the invading Japanese troops committed many atroc

ities before and during World War II, before venturing to amend the Constitution.

If the LDP tries to amend the pacifist Constitution without resolving the historic上海夜网

face opposition from the Japanese people as well as the international community.

The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Thursda

that enterprises in any country will not disregard their own interests and blindly follow other countries’ “political command”.

“Most countries have always been highly alert to US government acts of

resorting to state power to crack down on companies in other countries, disrupt m

arkets and obstruct mutually beneficial cooperation between other countries,” Lu said.

But the positive development is also accompanied by some concerns. A string of Japanese

carriers, including NTT Docomo, said they were also considering delaying the launch of Huawei’s new sma

rtphones. Their hesitance is due to uncertainty about Google’s previous announcement that it would restrict H

uawei’s access to updates of the Android operating system in compliance with a US ban.

The report indicated that the entire global economy is experiencing a broad-based growth slowdown amid unresolved tra

de tensions, high international policy uncertainty and softening business confidence.

The forecast for weaker global growth casts a shadow over efforts to im

Also on Friday, shortly after the US said it would ban Hua

 Huawei from buying US technology without special approval, Huawei’s chipmaking arm, HiSilico

n, said it has long been prepared for the “extreme scenario” of the US blocking access to some components and technologies.

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipation. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the

company’s products and a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conference

on Friday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and i

nterference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chipsets like Kirin, which has b

To avoid such a situation, fathers should share the

 responsibilities of raising a child in equal measure, which w

ill ease the burden on the mothers as well as help the children learn more diverse life skills.

If fathers do not share the responsibilities of raising a c

hild, the mother-child bond could become so insulated that even the father might find it hard

to become part of it. Therefore, Chinese women would do good to take a step back and involve their husbands in hou

sehold affairs, including in raising children. Women should learn to refuse to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the fam

ily and, instead, work to fulfill their other goals in life, including building their careers, and ask their husbands to fu

lfill their part of the obligations to the family even if it means going against tradition.

What we still don’t know about the Ethiopian Airlines Flig

  Investigators are combing through debris at the site where Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed on Sunday, attem

pting to make sense of a disaster that claimed 157 lives and left thousands more in grief and shock.

  In the days since the crash, the personal stories of many of those on board have

come to light — highlighting the truly international nature of a tragedy that saw people of 35 different nationalities die.

  The focus on Boeing has also been intense. On Tuesday, the U

K joined several other countries in grounding the company’s newest, big-selling 737 MAX 8 jet o

ver safety concerns. The MAX 8 was also the model involved in October’s Lion Air crash, which killed all 189 people on board.

  But much more about Sunday’s crash remains unclear — including crucial questions over what caused the jet to go down.
