ASTANA – The Kazakh parliament approved a bill to rename the capital of Kazakhstan a

fter former President Nursultan Nazarbayev on Wednesday at a joint meeting of its two houses.

The bill was passed in two readings and the decision was announced by Nurlan Nigmatul

in, speaker of the lower house of the Kazakh parliament, state news agency Kazinform reported.

At the initiative of the new interim president, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, it was dec

ided to change the name of the capital from Astana to Nursultan without a referendum.

Earlier in the day, Tokayev took office as Kazakhstan’s interim president following the sud

den resignation of Nazarbayev, who had served as the country’s president for nearly three decades.

After the inauguration, Tokayev proposed to rename the Kazakh capital in honor of the former president.

RIA Novosti news agency quoted Kazakh Justice Minister Marat Beketayev as saying

that the bill has yet to be signed into law by the president in order to become effective.

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno

wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”

“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red

Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.

Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.

“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”

After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who

are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.

A constant temperature of 27 degrees, a water bowl that never freezes, a comfy mat, and no dogs allowed.

Those are the amenities for felines in a neighborhood in Beijing’s Sh

unyi district, where stray cats can loll around contentedly all winter, nibbling food and sipp

ing water, safe from the weather and provided with love through an artificial intelligence platform. It is purrfection.

Wan Xi, an engineer at Baidu Brain-the open AI platform of Baidu-had the idea of build

ing a smart shelter for strays when he found a kitten huddled on his car tire in the winter of 2017.

Winter is rough for stray animals, as they require extra calories to stay warm. Only around 40 perc

ent of stray cats find enough food and shelter to make it through the harsh temperatures.

Although volunteers offer water, food and even heating pads to stray animals, Beijing’s freezin

g winters can turn a bowl of water into ice before a cat can drink. Many stray cats don’t live more than two ye

ars. Those that are not neutered or spayed face more health problems and spawn more homeless cats.

The development of artificial intelligence is helping Beijing’s dogs, too. At the suggestion of the local government, AI sta

rtup Megvii developed a dog facial recognition system to help reunite owners with lost pets.

Just as humans can be identified by their unique fingerprints, dogs can be identified by their distinctive noses.

Xie Yinan, vice-president of Megvii, said the company has built a dog nose-print database with 1 million images to train the

machine-learning model, and the system is expected to help improve the stray dog problem in the city.

It is estimated that the population of stray animals in Beijing surpassed 1 million back in 2005. Homeless animals lead

to public health problems, but poisoning and shooting them has sparked debate about humane animal control methods.

Everyone has their own way to communicate with the wor

ld, said Wan. “I believe that technology can make the world a warmer and better place.”

  2016 that British voters would reject leaving the European Union in a

referendum while he had predicted they would vote to exit the bloc.

  Obama did not bet on the outcome. But he did however warn Britons

they would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US if they left the EU.

  Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwilling to “negotiate with the Obam

a administration” about trade. In fact, the previous administration sought to conclude a Tran

satlantic Trade and Investment Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the

line. Trump’s own talks on trade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a President who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Tr

ump, who was forced into a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.
