level, and supported by diverse interest groups will prevent conflicts among stakeholders in the South China Sea,” Santarita said.

He said Asia’s emphasis on “respect for authority, respect for the environment and the discipli

ne to control the use of resources” will also see Asian leaders pursuing a more eco-friendly dev

elopment path and honor their commitments to the Paris climate agreement.

nitiative is a challenge, but achievable,” she said, adding that at the heart of this challenge lies great potenti

al for innovation and creativity, such as new disaster risk prediction and analysis, and disaster-resilient infrastructures.

Henrik Slotte, a senior disaster management expert from the UN Environm

ent Program, said poorly managed infrastructure projects can damage the ecosystem.

Fretting about weight has become a common topic for

discussion among Chinese women-and not just at the office. Such discussions can be heard

everywhere, from high school classrooms to fitness studios, beauty salons and department stores.

But the issue is not just cause for concern in China. Obsessing over body shape has also emerged in Western countries over the past decade.

The term “fat talk” was coined by United States anthropologist Mimi Nic

hter and her team of researchers in 1994 after they observed the way girls in middle school

spoke about their body shapes-unexpectedly revealing that they invariably focused on the negatives.

Since then, numerous studies have detailed how pervasive “fat talk” has become among women of all ages.

A study published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly in 2011 found that an “overwhelm

ing majority of women”-93 percent-admitted to discussing the issue, with one-third of them doing so frequently.

Worst example of anti-China prejudice

One of the worst examples of anti-China prejudices comes from a bo

Ruwan Wijewardene, Sri Lankan state defense min

nister, said on Tuesday that Islamic extremists staged the attacks in

Sri Lanka in retaliation to the shootings in two New Zealand mosques in March that claimed 50 lives.

And the blasts lay bare several threats confronting the whole world. First

of all, the reflux of IS terrorists formerly active in Iraq and Syria to countries that have not su

ffered large-scale serial terrorist strikes in a while poses a serious threat to their people’s safety.

Sri Lanka had enjoyed relative peace after the Liberation Tige

rs of Tamil Eelam, a militant organization demandin

g a separate homeland for Tamils in northeastern Sri Lanka, was defeated in 2009.

Governments have been keeping a close watch on the small nu

mber of people that have returned to their countries after atten

ding IS training camps. Yet the lack of coordination mechanisms among countries seemin

gly helps the terrorists evade surveillance and collude with extremist forces outside their countries.
