The central bank’s data is largely in line with the market’s expectations, said Ming Ming, a上海后花园品茶微信

n economist with CITIC Securities. “In terms of future monetary policy, the central bank’s move will be infl

It’s not just narcotics officers and lawmakers who need to keep up with the rapid development of new types of illegal recr上海后花园品茶微信

eational drugs, but also sniffer dogs at the General Administration of Customs’ canine training center in Beijing.

3-year-old Labrador sniffer dog, takes just 10 seconds to find the one containing drugs.

on the head as encouragement. Yu then uses a rolled-up towel to play a tug-of-war game with Fun.

“Tug-of-war is the biggest motivation for these dogs to work,” he said. “By dragging the towel, the excitability of the dogs can be cultivated.”上海后花园

Yu said the dogs rely on their acute sense of smell. “Without unpacking the luggage, the sniffer dogs are faster and more accurate than manual inspections.

“上海后花园品茶微信With the emergence of new kinds of drugs, these sniffer dogs need to update their sensibilities to detect the new stuff.”

New synthetic drugs including stimulants similar to amphetamines are appearing constantly, according to the Supreme People’s P

rocuratorate. Detecting them has also become more difficult, because a large number of drug dealers no longer ca上海后花园

rry drugs with them but use the internet to purchase, sell and deliver their inventory.

“In accordance with the different tasks, the detection dogs in custo上海后花园品茶微信

ms are mainly divided into six types, aside from detecting drugs,” said Li Siwen, an anti-sm

uggling officer with Beijing customs. “Some are trained to find explosives, tobacco, bank notes and ivory. Our s

niffer dogs are capable of identifying more than seven kinds of drugs and their derivatives.”

Yu said Fun had been working for more than a year and can distinguish five different types of drugs.
