BEIJING Joey Gallo Jersey , Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- A meeting jointly held by the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Ministry of Education emphasized the Party's authority over centrally-administered universities.
Higher education should be a nurturing environment for the inheritors of the socialist cause, adhere to the socialist orientation, and uphold CPC's leadership, according to a statement released Friday.
Universities should be governed by the rule of law and regulations, and their teachers are encouraged to join the Party, said the statement.
The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC has launched inspections of centrally-administered universities Jason Grilli Jersey , including China's prestigious Peking and Tsinghua universities, in the first half of this year.
The CCDI has found problems such as weakened Party leadership and corruption risks, saying that CPC committees in these universities have not done sufficient work to act as the core in leading their universities.
Discipline inspectors also found that Party committees in some universities did not carry out serious intra-Party political life and their Party building activities have also been weakened.

NEW DELHI Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , May 29 (Xinhua) -- Two Indian states, Kerala in the south and West Bengal in the east, on Monday strongly objected to the central government's recent ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets.
Both Kerala's Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and West Bengal's Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called the central government's ban as an infringement on state powers and asserted that they would challenge it in a court of law.
"What we eat cannot be decided by Delhi or Nagpur", the Kerala chief minister said in state capital Thiruvananthapuram, referring to India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and its ideological mentor, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Ferguson Jenkins Jersey , which is headquartered in the western city of Nagpur.
Echoeing similar sentiments, the West Bengal chief minister tore into the central government for the ban, saying it was intruding into state's powers. "We won't accept the Indian government's decision, it is unconstitutional; we will challenge it legally," she told the media in state capital Kolkata.
The Indian Environment Ministry last week imposed a ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter, saying that cattle for slaughter will have to be bought from farmers directly Elvis Andrus Jersey , defining cattle as bulls, cows, buffalo, steers, heifers, calves and camels.
The regulation was meant to protect "animals from cruelty and not to regulate the existing trade in cattle for slaughter houses" Delino DeShields Jersey , the ministry said.
For a fraction of the cost of competing ultra mobile computing devices, the Asus Eee PC 701 delivers a highly functional portable that might appeal to road warriors and students who want an unobtrusive and inexpensive computer for basic web surfing, word processing and email.
But, let?s be honest here. With a list of components that tend towards the modest, the Asus Eee PC 701 isn?t for everyone. The unit is saddled with a small 7in low-resolution display. The on-board storage is virtually non-existent, giving you just 4GB of solid-state memory ? and of that Cole Hamels Jersey , the system snags 2.4GB, leaving just 1.4GB available for the user. The 512MB of memory is low at a time when laptops typically come with a minimum of 1GB. And the Intel Mobile Processor doesn't even merit anything more specific than that designation in the system information screen.
Moving to the Internet tab there's plenty to see, including shortcuts to popular mail services such as Gmail and Hotmail, as well as links to Wikipedia, Google Documents and Internet Radio. Skype comes pre-loaded, along with the excellent multi-platform instant messenger Carlos Gomez Jersey , Pidgen. Internet browsing is supplied by Firefox, though of all things the browsing experience on the Eee PC isn't as seamless as it could be.
Why? To begin with the screen resolution isn't ideal. Since a great majority of websites default to 1024 pixels wide, the 800 pixel width means many websites can't fit into the screen. There's also little in the way of scaling of web pages as found in Mobile Safari on the iPhone, which makes browsing on the lower resolution screen awkward at times. These aren't insurmountable problems, but it may make some people think twice and as a result one has to wonder whether Opera might have been a better option as the default browser.
It's known to be quicker and less resource intensive than Firefox, while it's also better optimized for mobile devices with low resolution screens. Of course Andrew Cashner Jersey , the Linux proficient among you could happily install Opera yourselves, though the command line jiggery-pokery involved is hardly end user friendly.
In favor of Linux though, it does mean that the Eee PC boots up impressively quickly, in the region of 15 seconds. Moreover, the standby mode provides a near instant restart, just like other mobile devices. It also means that Adrian Beltre Jersey , despite the relatively slow components, the Eee PC doesn't grind to a complete halt. It still isn't fast mind you, but it's perfectly useable for the usage required.
If you really can't deal with Linux, Asus has made all the Windows XP component drivers available. Thus, you can in.
