Exercise leads Lunar New Year trendsival holiday, burning

During the Spring Festival holiday, burning calories has become a new trend from an internet catchphrase, chinanews.com has reported.

In many parts of China, sports have risen in popularity, as people enjoy working out by putting their

bodies in motion, reducing the physical burden of eating and drinking while staying healthier at the same time.

Fangfang, 24, from Taizhou, Zhejiang province, ran her first 5 kilometers of the Year of the Pig on Monday, as jogging to work makes her feel full of energy.

Dozens of winter swimmers from Yuhuan, Zhejiang, gathered at the beach behind Kanmen and rushed into to the sea against the cold wind to enjoy s

wimming. “We coastal people start the new year with our unique sport,” winter swimming enthusiast Chen Zhongfang said.

In preparation for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, games on snow and ice are drawing more interest. In snow and ic

e parks in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, a number of experiential projects have been set up, such

as a snow football field, ice bumper cars, curling, ice gyro and a snow circle. Thousands of citizens take part in such activities every day.

“I can spend more time with my family and pay much less

for a house than in a big city,” he said. “I attended the first job fair to be held in my hometown on Sunday. I’m considering some job interviews and the salaries offered.”

Ningbo, Zhejiang province, will hold 44 job fairs from Tuesday to late March-42 percent more than last year.

Among them are eight large job fairs starting on Feb 16. More than 900 companies are ex

pected to attend each of the fairs, which will be held on Saturdays and Sundays for a month.

Starting in March, Ningbo will organize more than 2,200 compa

nies and government-affiliated institutions to attend 100 job fairs in 40 cities across Ch

ina, including Hangzhou, Zhejiang province; Xi’an, Shaanxi province; and Changchun, Jilin province.

Cities such as Taizhou, Zhejiang province; Heze, Shandong province; and Nantong, J

South Korea, US sign cost-sharing deal for American troops

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea and the United States struck a new deal Sunday that increases Seoul’s contribut

ion for the cost of the American military presence on its soil, overcoming previous fai

led negotiations that caused worries about their decades-long alliance.

The development comes as President Donald Trump is set to hold his second summit w

ith North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam in late February.

South Korea last year provided about $830 million, covering roughly 40 percent of the cost of the deployment of 28,

500 U.S. soldiers whose presence is meant to deter aggression from North K

orea. Trump has pushed for South Korea to pay more.

On Sunday, chief negotiators from the two countries signed a new cost-sharing pla

n, which requires South Korea to pay about 1.04 trillion won ($924 million) in 2019, Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said the two countries reaffirmed the need for a “stable” U.S. mili

tary deployment amid the “rapidly changing situation on the Korean Peni

nsula.” The ministry said the U.S. assured Sou

th Korea that it is committed to the alliance and has no plans to adjust the number of its troops in South Korea.
