Topics : China’s Education Ministry and Ethnic Affairs Commission did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.Videos of the protests appeared on Chinese social media site Weibo on Monday, but have since been removed, according to Reuters checks.The advocacy group also said videos show curfews were put in place starting on Monday in Lubei town, in the region’s east.Traffic authorities in Fengzhen, a city southeast of regional capital Hohhot, released a notice on Monday that said they developed a plan for “emergencies involving ethnic languages” to “maintain the city’s political and social stability.”Local civil unrest is unusual in China, where the internet is tightly controlled and police crack down on gatherings quickly.Preserve the mother tongueThe changes have sparked protest in the independent nation of Mongolia, which shares a border with the Chinese-administered Inner Mongolia.”We need to voice our support for Mongolians striving to preserve their mother tongue and scripture in China. The right to learn and use one’s mother tongue is an inalienable right for all,” tweeted former Mongolian president Tsakhia Elbegdorj on Tuesday.In Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, a small number of people gathered at the Chinese embassy on Monday to protest the changes.”Most of us have lost the ability to speak proper Mongolian, but Inner Mongolians have kept that tradition intact. I am here to show solidarity with my southern brethren,” philosophy teacher Tseren Tuvshinjargal told Reuters.The program to replace ethnic languages in core courses has been deployed in Xinjiang and Tibet beginning in 2017, areas known for unrest between authorities and ethnic minorities.”Mastering the national spoken and written language is the responsibility and obligation of every Chinese citizen. It is a concrete manifestation of love for the party and country,” said state media outlet Inner Mongolia Daily on Tuesday. Ethnic Mongolians in China’s north have staged rare protests over changes to school curriculums that remove Mongolian language from core subjects, a show of defiance that has led to curfews in some areas, according to an advocacy group.New guidelines in the Chinese-administered Inner Mongolia region require elementary and secondary school subjects including history, politics and language to be taught in Mandarin beginning on September 1.Videos circulated by New York-based advocacy group, the Southern Mongolian Human Rights Information Center, show angry crowds of students and parents gathering outside schools to protest the move. The group said protesters number in the thousands. Reuters could not independently verify the figures.Director Enghebatu Togochog told Reuters they believe the program is part of a wider push by Beijing to wipe out Mongolian culture in the region, and said some parents pulled their children from the schools in protest.The standardization of national education is a key policy drive under China’s President Xi Jinping, largely focusing on promoting loyalty to China and the Communist Party.In a Q&A posted online, Inner Mongolian regional education authorities defended the changes, saying they “reflect the will of the Party and nation … and the inherent excellence of Chinese culture and advances to human civilization”.
Diogo Jota and Jurgen Klopp celebrate Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images)Diogo Jota scored his first goal for Liverpool as he netted in the 3-1 victory over Arsenal on Monday night and he has revealed the message Jurgen Klopp left ringing in his ears as he took to the field at Anfield.The 23-year-old was making his Premier League debut for the Reds after signing from Wolves earlier this month and immediately began to repay the £41m spent on him.The Portuguese came on with 10 minutes to play and volleyed home from the edge of the area in the 88th minute to complete the scoring.Thrilled to make an impact so early in his Liverpool career, the Portugal international is targeting plenty more goals for the Premier League champions and explained his new boss gave him as he replaced Sadio Mane.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘It is an amazing feeling,’ Jota told Sky Sports. ‘I just wish it could be with a full stadium but I am happy to seal the win for the team and get the result.‘In football sometimes you score, sometimes you miss and you have to believe you are going to score and fortunately I did. Comment Advertisement ‘[The manager] told me to keep pressing like we were doing and be happy with the ball and do what I used to do. Play good football and press without the ball.‘I will do my job in training every day, hard work and do my best on match day.‘The first one is always the hardest one, to keep on going is the is the most important think. I have one, I want more.‘We are pretty much in the beginning, three games in and we want to keep going and get three points in the next game.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityKlopp was delighted with Jota’s performance given that it can take new signings a while to adapt to how Liverpool play under the German.The Reds boss feels Jota is learning quickly and was thrilled to see him get an early reward for his efforts.‘Diogo came on, played his natural football, tried to defend the way we defend and he’s only on about 20 per cent of information for what we do exactly,’ said Klopp.‘We had team meetings to talk about it, but it will take time.‘Today he had like 60 or 70 minutes time to watch how Sadio is doing it and he came on the pitch and played incredibly well.‘He scored a super goal, nice first game at Anfield.

Glamglow Supermud (rsp: £42)Rsp:£5.99Aldi says: Clearing mudmask balances problem-prone skin. For a mattified and clearer complexion designed to reduce the appearance of imperfections.Expert verdictThis week our expert is Lucy Cornford, category director for beauty & personal care at Mintel What do you think?With its Lacura line, Aldi has done what Aldi does best: drawing inspiration for NPD from prominent brands, but attaching a more accessible price tag. Keen-eyed consumers will instantly recognise the shapes, styles, designs, functions and active ingredients borrowed from leading beauty brands, with this familiarity likely a comfort to buyers as a marker of quality.Aldi hasn’t stopped there. The retailer is also tapping the premium aspirations of today’s beauty shopper, such as with its Lacura Caviar line, which reflects both the style and substance of exclusive beauty brand La Prairie, but for around £300 less per product.I believe a further move towards more affordable, accessible luxury could see Aldi become as much a formidable player in the beauty market as it has across the rest of the grocery sector, particularly as finances continue to be squeezed but demand for premium beauty continues to rise.How interesting is the range?Whilst many of the products available are essentially duplications of top sellers, it is the approach that Aldi has taken to the structuring of its Lacura facial skincare and cosmetics portfolios that I feel is particularly unique in the own-label beauty space. Here we see the retailer challenge leading brands across all pricing tiers of the category – superluxe, prestige, masstige and mass – enabling shoppers to feel as though they are ‘trading up or down’ on individual products within the Lacura brand.Aldi is on point when it comes to targeting the semi-engaged beauty consumer too. It’s quick to piggyback trends that have hit the mainstream – such as charcoal in skincare – helping the Lacura brand appear fresh, relevant and innovative. I’d say the retailer has an opportunity here to become a destination for beauty as well as food. In a heavily saturated market, Aldi could stand out by offering more guidance and education around formulations, functions, ingredients and trends to help shoppers cut through the noise.And what does this tell us about the wider own-label strategy?Premiumisation is the way to go, driving growth in the retail sector over the last two years, but this doesn’t need to be reflected in the price tag as Aldi has demonstrated with its Lacura Caviar line.The stigma of buying from discount grocers is fast decreasing, and Aldi has found itself increasingly appealing to a more affluent consumer base. By extending its beauty offering to reflect the wants and needs of different shopper tiers it’s aiming to reduce the repertoire of outlets shoppers use to buy their core products. It’s now not only competing with other leading supermarkets but with department stores, high street health & beauty retailers and online shops.However, to truly challenge leading beauty brands and retailers, I think Aldi could maximise this opportunity even further by being a little smarter. Lacura sub-ranges may be significant in number, but they are small, with committed focus on the leading grooming essentials in each category (e.g. moisturiser, shampoo and conditioner). Expanding and innovating on the types of products available could see shoppers invest in a more comprehensive beauty routine through the retailer.Click here to apply for The Grocer’s Own-Label Accreditation Scheme Lacura Caviar IlluminationWhat is it inspired by?

Aldi has been hitting headlines with its own-brand health & beauty products for years. The disruptive range regularly expands with new in-store and online launches inspired by big players like L’Oreal and Nivea as well as cult brands like Pixi Skincare. Aldi sells the ‘dupes’ for a fraction of the original product’s retail price. To give you deeper insight into the range, we’ve selected eight of the new products to highlight what they are, what they’re competing against and what they tell us about Aldi’s wider own-brand strategy. This time, expert analysis is from Lucy Cornford, category director for beauty & personal care at Mintel. This showcase is part of a new series of articles examining key trends and developments in own label and has been introduced to support The Grocer Own-Label Accreditation Scheme.

The study is the first to show that storefront marijuana signage is extremely influential and substantially magnifies the associations between higher density of medical marijuana dispensaries with greater use of marijuana and positive views about the drug, according to the think tank. Young adults who live in neighborhoods with a higher number of medical marijuana dispensaries use pot more frequently than their peers and have more positive views about the drug, according to a study released by the Rand Corp. Los Angeles Times 17 June 2019Family First Comment: “Our findings suggest that as the marijuana retail outlets become more visible and more numerous, they may influence the way that young adults perceive and use marijuana,” The results were strongest among young adults who lived near dispensaries that had storefront signs, suggesting that regulating such advertising could be one strategy if policymakers are concerned about curbing use of marijuana, according to Rand. Based on research from the same project, the city of Los Angeles adopted an ordinance in 2018 to restrict some storefront and billboard advertising. “Our findings suggest that as the marijuana retail outlets become more visible and more numerous, they may influence the way that young adults perceive and use marijuana,” said Regina Shih, the study’s lead author and a senior behavioral scientist at the nonprofit research organization. California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, and 33 states now having some type of medical marijuana law. In addition, California and nine other states allow the sale of marijuana for recreational use. Although research supports some medicinal benefits of marijuana, youth who frequently use cannabis are more likely to experience negative consequences such as increased risk of mental and physical health problems, school drop-out, relationship problems and motor vehicle accidents, according to the Rand researchers.READ MORE: https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-marijuana-pot-dispensary-young-people-20190617-story.html

Dan Downie, racing manager for the Axom Syndicate, said: “We wouldn’t be running him if he hadn’t come out of Aintree bouncing. He seems in really good form. “We don’t think he’s gone over the top, but you never really know until you run them. He’ll be going out in the field in a couple of weeks. “You can pick holes in a few of the other horses in the race, so we thought it was worth a go. Going right-handed obviously isn’t an issue and the ground should be fine.” The once-brilliant Sprinter Sacre appeared a shadow of his former self when pulling up in the Champion Chase at Prestbury Park last month, but trainer Nicky Henderson is keen to give him one more chance to prove the fire still burns bright. With stable jockey Barry Geraghty still on the sidelines, Sprinter Sacre’s regular work rider and Gold Cup winner Nico de Boinville will get on board for the first time in public. Henderson said: “He’s in good form and he looks great. We are very happy with him. “Nico has had a fantastic year, obviously. He knows the horse backwards. He’s ridden him nearly every day for the last three years. “Barry (Geraghty) will be feeling odd watching him, but there we go. It’s hard luck on him.” Irish hopes in Saturday’s bet365 A P McCoy Celebration Chase at Sandown rest with Special Tiara. Paul Nicholls would love to provide Tony McCoy with the perfect send-off as Mr Mole goes for glory. The JP McManus-owned seven-year-old has been called plenty of names in the past, but has won three of his four starts this season, completing the hat-trick in Newbury’s Game Spirit Chase in February on the day McCoy made the shock announcement he would be retiring at the end of the season. Mr Mole disappointed in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last month, but has been carefully prepared by Nicholls since in a bid to ensure he is in the best possible shape to give McCoy a fairytale ending to his incredible career. “There is nothing I would like more on Saturday than to provide AP McCoy with a winner on his final day in the saddle,” Nicholls told Betfair. “He has already won on Mr Mole several times and I’ve kept the horse fresh since Cheltenham for the AP McCoy Celebration Chase at Sandown. Just imagine the reception he will get if he comes home in front on Mr Mole in the green and gold colours of his greatest supporter JP McManus. “He (Mr Mole) worked great on Wednesday morning, but then he always does work great. He’s in good shape, he’s fresh and well so I’m really looking forward to running him. “AP got to like him a bit more this year, he’s won three good races on him and he’s been very progressive. Saturday is a highly-competitive race and it’s going to be on quick ground but we’re happy with him anyway.” Mr Mole is one of two runners for the master of Ditcheat, with leading novice Vibrato Valtat also in contention.

…Hope incredibly scored his first and second Test match hundreds in the same match in Leeds to level the series 1-1LEEDS, England (Reuters) – Shai Hope became the first man to score a hundred in both innings of a first-class match at Headingley as he inspired the West Indies to a truly magnificent and wholly unlikely five-wicket win over England in a thrilling second Test yesterday.Kraigg Braithwaite hit 95 and shared a fine partnership of 144 ruba with Shai HopeHope and fellow Barbadian Kraigg Brathwaite reprised their first-innings heroics to inspire a side written off and dismissed as “pathetic” after a crushing innings defeat in the first Test at Edgbaston.The pair, who both scored hundreds first time around, again combined superbly, compiling another century partnership to provide the backbone of the Windies’ gripping chase of 322 runs to level the three-match series.Jermaine Blackwood then muscled the visitors towards the finish line with Hope, smashing a typically thunderous 41 off 45 balls including two sixes.It was the Windies’ first victory in a Test in England for 17 years and one of the most unexpected triumphs in the game’s history such have been the recent woes of Caribbean cricket.Hope, 23, proved the visitors’ hero with his unprecedented achievement of twin centuries in a match after 118 years of first-class cricket at the famous Yorkshire venue.Hope, who had scored his maiden Test hundred with 147 in the first innings, batted for 211 balls for his unbeaten 118, playing with remarkable skill and composure to guide theShai Hope is congratulated by Jermaine Blackwood after reaching his century (Image: PA)Windies to victory.England will rue dropped catches – Alastair Cook spilled Hope and Brathwaite at first slip off Stuart Broad – but there could be no complaints about the defeat as Caribbean cricket enjoyed a dramatic reawakening.With a healthy crowd of over 5 000 on the fifth day, the visitors had been given little or no chance of scoring the 317 more runs they needed.CLOUD COVERThe pitch was turning and the cloud cover gave England’s pacemen real hope but young Bajans Brathwaite and Hope negotiated the testing conditions superbly.A mixture of calm defiance combined with judicious attacking frustrated the England bowlers to the point that James Anderson, who had a run-in with opener Kieran Powell, and Stuart Broad, who was warned for kicking the pitch petulantly, became increasingly disgruntled.This was only the fourth time a pair had registered two century stands together in a single Test for the Windies and the first since Brian Lara and Ramnaresh Sarwan achieved the feat in 2001.In 534 first-class matches at Headingley, no batsman had scored a century in both innings – but, though Brathwaite missed out, caught at slip off Moeen Ali just before tea for 95, Hope battled on to reach the landmark in 276 minutes.As the day wore on, Cook’s early miss, dropping Brathwaite, had looked ever more costly and when he spilled Hope after he had scored 106, the game was effectively up for England.Brathwaite again made the best of his good fortune to mix caution with admirable aggression as he faced 180 balls, striking 12 fours.Hope remained unfazed and, coming into the last hour with the Windies still needing 47 to win at just over three an over, Blackwood’s unorthodox hitting, including a straight six off Anderson in the first over with the new ball, powered them home.ENGLAND 1st innings 258 (B.
