BEIRUT, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Four donor countries pledged to provide Lebanon with 550 million U.S. dollars in 2016 to help it cope with the refugee crisis, the Annahar daily reported Tuesday.

""Following the Supporting Syria and the Region Conference held in London on February 4, we, the co-host donors, met the Prime Minister Tammam Salam and Social Affairs Minister Rashid Derbas to reiterate our strong support for Lebanon's economic stabilization and social development as set out in the Lebanese Government's Statement of Intent"" UK Ambassador Hugo Shorter said in a statement on behalf of co-host donors.

HEFEI, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese scientists have developed a smart pesticide that, once in the soil, is controllable and recyclable.

A team led by Wu Zhengyan, professor with the Technical Biology Institute Maple Leafs James Van Riemsdyk Jersey , under Hefei Institute of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, used diatomite, iron magnesium oxide and chitosan to make a compound that can be activated by changes to pH levels in the soil.

"The release of the pesticide mixed with the additive can be easily adjusted by pH changes. The additive wraps up the drug and acts like a gatekeeper. It opens the gate and dissolves in acidic conditions," Wu said.

He said the research showed that a single-season crop only needed the pesticide spray once. During the growth of the plant Auston Matthews Maple Leafs Jersey , growers simply spray a weak-acid agent to activate and control the pesticide's effect. Conventional farming needs several rounds of pesticide spray.

The report on the research was published in the latest issue of the Chemical Engineering Journal, an international
