OSLO nike air vapormax saldi , May 23 (Xinhua) -- Norway's capital city is to employ 50 new teachers to help primary school students catch up in school, newspaper Aftenposten reported Tuesday.

The new teachers will be working with students from the first to fourth grades on short-term intensive education, inspired by the Finnish school system, the report said.

According to Oslo city councillor Tone Tellevik Dahl, the measure will be part of her proposal for the revised municipal budget for 2017, which will be published later on Tuesday.

"In Oslo nike vapormax saldi , as in the whole of Norway, there are three times as many resources used in the special education of 10th-graders than in first grade. We know, however, that learning difficulties that are not taken care of increase over time," Dahl said.

"We want to turn the pyramid upside down and use more resources in the early stages," she said.

Dahl added that the idea came from the Finnish school system Uomo Nike Air Max 120 KPU TPU All Nere Saldi , which is presented by many as an example to follow and that has, for many years, done very well in the international PISA surveys.

The proposal for the revised municipal budget is to be approved by the city council before the summer vacation, Aftenposten wrote.

At the start of school year last autumn, 35 new teachers were employed in primary schools and 35 additional teachers are to be employed by selected schools and should be ready for autumn 2017.

With the 50 additional positions announced now, there will be 120 new teachers in total.

However Donne Nike Air Max 98 Bianche Argento Saldi , only some of Oslo's 110 primary schools will get new teachers. The city council wishes to select about 15 schools where the challenges are greatest and employ the teachers there.

"We do not spread resources equally everywhere, but use them where they are needed. By treating the schools differently, we give Oslo students equal opportunities," Dahl said.

BEIJING, May 12 (Xinhua) -- As the popularity of the Belt and Road (B&R) grows, so do the attendant misconceptions and occasional outright lies.

One of the the most popular myths is that of China's "chequebook diplomacy."

A recent article in the Deccan Chronicle suggested that "China is using 'cheque book diplomacy' to make friends and also acquire real estate in strategically-located foreign lands" as part of the B&R strategy.

The comment comes as China begins to flex its considerable economic muscles and play a more central role in global economic affairs and governance Uomo Nike Air Max 98 SE Team Rosse Italia , as it rightly should, given its status as the world's second largest economy and a driving force behind world growth.

It is not the first time the phrase has been aired, with Reuters describing the establishment of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in 2015 as the time when "China's chequebook diplomacy came of age," and the Financial Times reporting in 2016 that "China tries chequebook diplomacy in Southeast Asia."

"Chequebook" invokes the feeling of money that can be disposed of at the government's discretion or whim, without any real expectation of a return. In this sense, that could describe almost all international aid whereby the haves gift or loan some of their national wealth to the have-nots.

But unlike traditional aid from the West Uomo Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Rosse Nere Italia , China seldom gives budgetary support or other forms of monetary donations to foreign governments. Suitcases bulging with cash are not the Chinese way. China prefers to see itself as a country that "teaches men to fish" rather that one which simply dishes up plates of fish and chips.

B&R deals are predominantly cooperation projects, but not grandiose development plans, which with an accompanying nudge and a wink, foisted on recipients with a "nanny knows best" attitude. China first finds out what recipient countries need, and then works with those countries to help them, as far as possible Uomo Nike Air VaporMax Bianche Scontate , to fulfill their own goals, under their own steam, with China's support.


Secondly, chequebook diplomacy implies dangling some vague economic benefit in front of a needy country's eyes and expecting to curry diplomatic favor in return.

China is not trying to buy friends.

This is no Marshall Plan.

China does not have a clique of allies to cajole or enemies to coerce. The Belt and Road is open to all. The benefits are open to all. Investment is open to all. What is good for one's neighbor, generally, is good for oneself.

The B&R is not some geopolitical Mexican stand-off. No participating country Uomo Nike Air VaporMax Nere Oro Scontate , for example, has been asked to choose sides. B&R countries cooperate for mutual economic benefit, not to forge alliances, nor to separate insiders from outsiders.


Finally, chequebook diplomacy is a denial of the profitability of most B&R projects. The B&R is not a philanthropic fiction. It is a sound business project created with the intention of making profits for investors and stake-holders.

Loans and investment are not aid. Loans need to be serviced and repaid. Even policy banks are not inclined to lend money to non-bankable projects.

A development bank is still a bank, not a charity or a protection racket. Some large infrastructure projects lose money at the beginning Acquistare Nike Air VaporMax 97 Argento Bullet Argento Rosse , but banks do not lend to projects that do not have capacity to turn a profit in the long run.

This is also the case with investment, which cannot be forced on a company. It is China's private co.
