Berry and Irwin, half-brothers originally from Washington, came to Kentucky to fish for Asian carp in November.

Irwin is a commercial fisherman who has worked all over the world, most recently in Ala

ska during the summer. For three months, he worked 20 – to 22-hour days in Alaskan wate

One day, Irwin read an internet article about Asian carp and commercial fishing in Kentucky, and immediately became interested.

Since 2015, more than 100 foreign experts and students fr

om countries involved in the BRI have visited Hainan annually to study agricultural technology, including Nanf

an’s breeding program, which is “playing the role of Silicon Valley for the country’s seed industry”, Wang said.

Hainan’s climate and biological resources have made Nanfan an important nati

onal center of seed propagation. Every winter, more than 7,000 domestic agricultural scientists and

workers are busy at the Nanfan centers. More than 70 percent of the country’s 7,000 crop varieties have been cul

“With good stress resistance and higher yields, hybrid rice seeds developed by Nanfan’s cen

“We have sent farming experts to hybrid rice growing areas overseas, and we give local farmers guidance, training and planni

Norwegian-born youth predicted to play for China

orwegian-born John Hou Sæter, a midfielder with Beijing Guo’an, received his temporary Chinese ID card Tuesday, becoming the first naturalized Chinese footballer.

Known as Hou Yongyong in China, the 21-year-old is expected to make his Guo’an debut in the Chinese Football Assoc

iation (CFA) Super Cup match between Shanghai SIPG and Beijing Guo’an next weekend, according to The Paper.

Guo’an has also registered him up for the upcoming AFC Champions League.

It has also been predicted that he may receive a national team call-up in the future.

Hou Sæter made his debut for Norwegian side Rosenborg in a domestic cup game against Orkla F

K in 2014. The appearance made him, at 16 years and 101 days, Rosenborg’s youngest ever senior player.

In September 2014 he made his debut in the Norwegian top f

light against Aalesund, coming on as an 81st-minute substitute in a 3-0 win. This made him his sid

e’s youngest ever league debutant, at 16 years and 258 days, beating the previous record by nine days.

Speaking on the speculation that Hou Sæter may one day play for the Chinese national side, h

is mother, Hou Yurong, said that it would be “both my wish and his own choice. I’m always his biggest fan.”

aker has previously criticized the Mueller investigation, and Barr

r’s nomination is under scrutiny from Democrats for a memo he wrote last year criticizing Mueller’s inquiry.

Mueller, who was appointed in May 2017, is looking into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election a

nd any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, among other matters that may arise from the investigation.

His team has indicted or gotten guilty pleas from 34 people, including several former Trump campaign aides and two dozen Russians, and three companies.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed any collusion between his campaign and Mo

scow, while slamming the Mueller probe as a “hoax” or “witch hunt.”

Last month, Mueller arrested Roger Stone, a longtime Trump associate, on charges o

f obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress.

As to Stone, the president told CBS in the interview that the 66-year-old veteran political ope

rative “didn’t work on the campaign” except at its onset. The president also said he hasn’t thought about pardoning Stone.
