China dismisses Trump’s attacks as ‘disturbances’

first_imgChina responded to Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on the country’s economic policies on Tuesday, with its foreign ministry dismissing the billionaire Republican candidate’s rhetoric as unrepresentative of the American people’s views.“We understand that in the United States every person has the freedom to make all kinds of comments. But for the Chinese government, we pay even more attention to the U.S. government’s policy towards China and mainstream U.S. public opinion,” Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, according to a report from Reuters.Trump has repeatedly called out China on the stump for manipulating its currency, saying that he would be a tougher negotiator with the country’s officials and pledging to return Chinese jobs to the U.S., among other things. “I’ve been telling everybody for a long time: China’s taking our jobs. They’re taking our money … Be careful. They’ll bring us down. You have to know what you’re doing. We have nobody that has a clue,” Trump said in an Instagram video last week.He has also professed his “love” for China, citing the various wealthy Chinese tenants in his buildings. In an MSNBC interview in June, Trump said, “I get along with everybody. I get along with the Chinese.”“The history of the development of Sino-U.S. ties in recent years shows that from time to time there will be all sorts of voices, or sometimes certain disturbances,” the spokeswoman said, according to the report, expressing a hope for officials in both countries to work together to improve relations.It’s not the first time the Chinese foreign ministry has responded to Trump’s declarations. In June, after Trump declared for the presidency, the ministry hit back at his assertions that the country is stealing American jobs.last_img read more

Hedwig Field Trip! Neil Patrick Harris & John Cameron Mitchell Visit Jinkx Monsoon in The Vaudevillians

first_img Neil Patrick Harris Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Neil Patrick Harris is new to this whole drag thing, but don’t worry—book writer and original star John Cameron Mitchell and composer Stephen Trask have found the perfect place to take him for some serious research. The trio took a dragalicious field trip to the Laurie Beechman Theatre to catch Drag Race champion Jinkx Monsoon and her trusty sidekick Major Scales in their hit show The Vaudevillians, which has been extended a whopping six times off-Broadway. After the hilarious show, the Hedwig clan went backstage to hang out with Monsoon, who is no stranger to the role NPH is bringing to Broadway—Monsoon is set to portray Hedwig at Seattle’s Moore Theatre from December 17 through 22. We’re hoping Harris had a long chat with Monsoon about foundation, eyebrows, glitter, and of course, “angry inch” tucking. Check out this awesome Hot Shot, then catch The Vaudevillians through November 19—and see Hedwig on Broadway beginning April 22!

Three new Saudi MERS cases hint at Medina hospital cluster

first_imgIn what may be another hospital-related MERS-CoV cluster, Saudi Arabia today reported three cases from  the holy city of Medina, two of them in healthcare workers, all of whom had contact with a confirmed or suspected case.The flare-up of cases in Medina comes as hundreds of thousands of travelers from all over the world are streaming into Saudi Arabia to make their Hajj pilgrimages, which constitute one of the five pillars of Islam.For the first time since Aug 2, no new cases were reported in Riyadh, which is experiencing a large hospital outbreak at King Abdulaziz Medical City.With the three new cases today, five MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) illnesses have now been reported in Medina since Sep 7. The first involved an 80-year-old Saudi woman who had contact with an earlier case. The Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) didn’t give any other details about her exposure.Prior to this outbreak, the most recent case reported in Medina occurred in February.Possible new hospital clusterYesterday the MOH reported a case in Medina involving a 33-year-old male foreign healthcare worker who had contact with a previous MERS case.In its announcement today, the MOH confirmed the infections of two more foreign healthcare workers in Medina, a 35-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man. Both are hospitalized in critical condition. The third new case involves an 82-year-old Saudi man who is listed in critical condition.The MOH said in a footnote about the cases that two of the three patients reported today have been transferred to King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh.Though most of Saudi Arabia’s MERS-CoV cases since July have come from Riyadh, other parts of the country have reported isolated cases and recent clusters. For example, sporadic illnesses have been reported recently in Al-Kharj, and the city of Najran has reported a cluster of cases, some of which involved contact with earlier cases.Hajj concernsThe uptick in virus activity in Saudi Arabia is occurring alongside a smaller but growing hospital outbreak in Amman, Jordan. The spurt of MERS-CoV cases in both countries has raised concerns about the threat to Hajj travelers, and the possibility that they could carry the virus back to their home countries.Since the virus was first detected in people in 2012, no Hajj-related cases have been reported, but previous years did not see the number of MERS cases being reported in recent weeks.As of today, 62 people are still being treated for MERS-CoV in Saudi Arabia, and another 13 are in home isolation.The newly reported cases push Saudi Arabia’s total from the disease to 1,231 cases, with the number of deaths remaining at 521.See also:Sep 11 Saudi MOH statementlast_img read more
