China revokes press credentials for US reporters from NYT, WSJ

first_imgChina’s foreign ministry said its actions are “entirely necessary and reciprocal countermeasures that China is compelled to take in response to the unreasonable oppression the Chinese media organizations experience in the US,” noting what it said are “discriminatory restrictions” on Chinese journalists’ visa processing, administrative review and reporting activities.Secretary of State Michael Pompeo dismissed the moves and the comparison to the US decision in a news conference Tuesday with reporters in Washington, saying he hopes Beijing will reconsider.“These aren’t apples to apples in any respect and I regret China’s decision today to further foreclose the world’s ability to conduct the free press operations which, frankly, would be really good for the Chinese people, really good for the Chinese people in these incredibly challenging global times where more information, more transparency are what will save lives,” Pompeo said.Topics : China will effectively expel a group of US journalists and prohibit them from relocating to work in Hong Kong or Macau as a tit-for-tat over media access between the two countries expands.China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday said some reporters at the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post must hand in their media cards within 10 days in what it said was a response to US caps on Chinese media imposed early this month.In addition, China asked five US media outlets to submit detailed personnel and asset information to the government, a decision that mirrored a US move to designate five Chinese media outlets as “foreign missions.” This requirement applies to Voice of America, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Time.last_img read more

Hot auctions in cool weather

first_img43a Dopson Street Taringa is set to test the market at auction this weekend.Brisbane offers a more conservative auction market than the southern capitals, where putting homes under the hammer more often the rule than the exception.However recent results show interest in Brisbane’s high-end family homes is gaining momentum.Kevin Brogan, auction commentator for Corelogic, said the limited amount of high quality family stock in Queensland’s capital has a lot to do with the hot auction results.“They (agents) definitely use the auction method of sale to excite, interest and develop a bit of urgency, and one of the things they’ve been talking about is the strength of the market for owner occupier family homes. … rather than the investment market,” he said.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours ago“The issue in Brisbane is that there is stock available, but certainly the agents that are taking a property to auction are doing so because there’s possibly a lack of the right type of quality stock and that’s what that’s giving them that really competitive bidding environment for both them and the vendor.”Certainly this Saturdays round of auctions will have some great options for very high-end owners to consider.Among them is this beautiful extension and renovation at 7 Elizabeth St, Paddington which goes under the hammer at 12:00 tomorrow.The four-bedroom contemporary adaptation of a classic Queenslander cottage will certainly have crowds gathering in anticipation of a big end price.Another suburban stunner at 43a Dopson St, Taringa is also up for grabs at 10:00am.Interest has been huge for this home.

Monk wants Swans to have belief

first_img Monk’s side have enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign and currently sit fifth in the table, level on points with Manchester United. The Swans’ momentum has, however, slowed in recent weeks with the team winless in their last four league matches. “Stoke is never an easy place to go and we know we have never won there in the Premier League,” Monk told Swansea’s official club website. “However, we should have won the last time we played there in February, so hopefully we can repeat that performance and get the victory. “They (Stoke) try and play football but they still have that direct aspect of their game, which makes them dangerous. “We have to go there with belief and impose ourselves on the game.” Swansea will be looking to get back to winning ways as soon as possible, having recorded consecutive draws against Newcastle and Sunderland. The international break has given Monk and his squad time to reflect on their season so far and the Swans boss says his team will be raring to go come Sunday. “It’s the same for every team but we will give the players all the information they need in order to be ready for Sunday’s game,” Monk added. “It’s difficult when half the squad is away, but we have still had a lot of players who have featured in the first team on a regular basis so we’ve managed to do plenty of offensive and defensive work.” Swansea boss Garry Monk says his players will need to be brave if they are to beat Stoke at the Britannia Stadium for the first time in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
