NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- New York City's Health Department Tuesday launched a public awareness campaign reminding New Yorkers that the flu vaccination is the best protection against fever and chills.

LONDON， Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- Self-employed people in Britain earn less now than they did 20 years ago， research released Tuesday revealed.
The number of those working for themselves have grown by almost 50 percent since 2001: a record five million people， or one in seven working age people， the think-tank Resolution Foundation said. Many people have become self-employed construction workers， hairdressers， taxi drivers， tutors and IT consultants.
Research by the foundation reveals average self-employed wages were 240 pounds(295.05 U.S. dollars) a week over 2014 and 2015， down from about 300 pounds a week in 1994-95.
Researchers blamed reduced pay rates on the financial crisis and a rise in lower paid jobs.
Member of Parliament (MP) Clive Lewis， the opposition Labour Party shadow secretary for business， energy and industrial strategy， said the research makes a mockery of the government's claim that the labor market is doing well.
Lewis said: "Technology is radically re-shaping working practices and creating exciting new opportunities for the world of work. But Tory (Conservative Party) failure to adjust to these changes means that， for too many people， flexible working and self-employment are a necessity rather than a choice， and come with lower pay and fewer rights.
An official spokesman for the government's Department for Business said there would be a review of how changing employment practices affect job security， workplace rights and opportunity for progression.

"We have amended the agreement. There will be no freehold land but it will be on a 99-year lease."

The project is being funded by China Communications Construction Company and was launched by Chinese President Xi Jinping in September 2014 during a visit to Colombo.
Colombo would set up an offshore banking centre to compete with Dubai and Singap.
