BEIJING, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Beijing quarantine authorities seized 10 extremely dangerous frogs that secrete toxins earlier this month in a parcel sent from Poland.

The live frogs included three types of poison dart frogs. A gram of toxin produced by the golden poison dart frog, the most deadly of the haul, is enough to kill 15,000 humans, said a spokesperson with the Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.

The brightly-colored frogs were contained in plastic containers and declared as "clothes and gifts." The boxes were wrapped in clothes and newspaper in an attempt to fool the X-ray scanners.

In September 2015, the bureau intercepted a poison dart frog in a parcel mailed from Hong Kong.

Several types of the poison dart frog family are included in the red list of threatened species of International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The spokesperson said checks on parcels will be intensified to curb illegal wildlife trade.

CANBERRA Air Max 90 Kids Sale , May 19 (Xinhua) -- One third of Australian childrenaged between 11 and 13 believe their fathers work too much,according to the results of a study released by the AustralianNational University (ANU) on Friday.

The study, undertaken as part of a wider project called "GrowingUp in Australia," took accounts from 3,000 fathers and theirchildren, and discovered that nearly half of all fathers workedmore than 44 hours a week.

The study's lead researcher Air Max 90 Womens Sale , Professor Lyndall Strazdins, saidthose long hours, as well as "regular" night and weekend work,contributed to their children's perceptions that fathers wereworking too much.

"Australia's work culture and social norms are making it hardfor dads to be the fathers they want to be," Strazdins said in astatement accompanying the study on Friday.

"More than half of fathers reported missing family eventsbecause of work, while a fifth described their family time as morepressured and less fun due to their jobs Air Max 90 Mens Sale , and these were problemstheir children shared."

The study also showed that, on average, Australian fathers spentmore time at paid work than mothers, who still undertake moredomestic and home duties than fathers. Strazdins said longer workhours were also a contributor to health risks among dads inAustralia.

"Our research has shown that people who work more than 39 hoursper week are putting their health at risk, and we have also shownthat expectations to work long hours are a problem for genderequality," she said.

"Workplaces still assume men are more devoted to their jobs thanwomen and so they expect men to work longer hours Air Max 90 Sale , but this createsdilemmas for fathers."

Despite children wishing their fathers worked fewer hours perweek, most understood that their dad "needs to work."

"While nearly one in eight children wished their father did notwork, most kids understand that dad needs to work," she said.Enditem

BEIJING, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has paid visits to more than 50 countries and hosted hundreds of visits from foreign leaders since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012.

He has also hosted or attended a series of international summits and activities.

To build a global network of friendship, China has established partnerships with about 100 countries and international organizations.

In October 2013 Nike Air Max 90 Suede , Xi highlighted the four-point principle of "amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness" in developing neighborhood diplomacy. While safeguarding its sovereignty, security and development interests, China has strengthened friendly cooperation with its neighbors.

China has also actively participated in regional cooperation mechanisms including the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO); ASEAN-China dialogue; ASEAN-China, Japan and Republic of Korea (ROK) (10+3) dialogue; East Asia Summit; China-Japan-ROK cooperation and Lancang-Mekong Cooperation.

Xi proposed the principles of non-confrontation Nike Air Max 90 Leather , no conflict, mutual respect and win-win cooperation in China-U.S. ties, which have remained stable in the transition from the Obama administration to Trump's.

Rounds of in-depth talks between Xi and his U.S. counterparts, including the meeting in Mar-a-Lago, have established a new model of interaction between top leaders, which are of key importance in stabilizing relations.

In the past five years Nike Air Max 90 Kids , Xi has visited Russia six times, bringing the number of meetings between the heads of state to more than 20.

China and Russia also made breakthroughs in cooperation on natural gas pipelines, high-speed railways, aerospace and other major projects, in addition to coordination in multilateral mechanisms.

China has strengthened friendship and cooperation with developing countries. In 2015, China rolled out 10 major plans to boost cooperation with Africa in areas ranging from industrialization to infrastructure services, with 60 billion U.S. dollars of funding support.

To ease the tension on the Korean Peninsula Nike Air Max 90 Mens , China advocates a "double suspension" approach, which requires the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-Republic of Korea military exercises.

The country has also worked to bring the South China Sea issue back to the negotiating table.
