CANBERRA Cheap Air Max Vapormax
Outlet , Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Female Australian MPs will from Tuesday
be allowed to breastfeed in the House of Representatives, after standing orders
banning "guests" in the chamber were revised to exclude children of
Leader of the House Christopher Pyne announced the landmark changes in
parliament on Tuesday, and said there was no place for outdated rules which act
as a roadblock for women pursuing a career in politics.
"I want to see as many women entering parliament as possible and for them to
not be deterred by any antiquated rules or practices that currently govern how
our parliament operates," Pyne said on Tuesday.
"There is absolutely no reason that rules should remain in place which make
life in politics and the parliament more difficult for women."
Late last year, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten called for the "archaic
conventions" to be scrapped from parliament, after a female MP was told to
"express more milk" prior to entering the chamber to keep her child occupied.

parliament for breastfeeding her 11-day-old daughter.
Further to the changes allowing breastfeeding in the chamber, Pyne also
announced that male MPs would be allowed to care for newborn children, should no
other option be available.
"No member of parliament, male or female, will ever again be prevented from
participating fully in the law making processes of parliament because they are
also caring for their child Cheap Air Max 2017
Outlet ," Pyne said.
The innovation minister called upon state government to adopt similar laws.
"While this significant change only requires a single sentence to be amended
in the rule book, I hope it sends a clear message," he said.
"I encourage the senate and all states and territories follow our lead in
these changes and that we all never stop looking for ways that we can encourage
Australians from all walks of life to become involved in public life."

Slump in 3rd-quarter profit will not affect long-term growth forecast, say
Despite a slump in third-quarter profit, Baidu Inc, China's biggest Internet
search company Cheap Air Max Outlet ,
is likely to convert its short-term pain into long-term gains due to the rapid
growth of its heavily invested online-to-offline business.
The Beijing-based company reported an operating profit of 2.51 billion yuan
($395.2 million) on Friday, a 35.9 percent fall from the same period a year
earlier, largely due to investments made to move away from the traditional
search advertising business.
However, Baidu's investments have not been in vain. The company said its O2O
service transactions from group-buying site Baidu Nuomi, takeaway delivery site
Baidu Waimai and online travel agency Qunar Cayman Islands Ltd surged to 60.2
billion yuan in the third quarter, compared with 40.5 billion yuan in the

"The momentum in transaction services gives us the confidence to continue
investing," she said, adding they will invest in ways that leverage and buttress
the company's competitive advantage.
Yin Sheng, an independent analyst who specializes in Internet research, said
though Baidu's profits have been hit due to its transformation into an O2O
business Cheap Nike Air Max 2018
Mens , it is still one of the fastest-growing Internet companies in
The Nasdaq-listed Baidu said in June that it would invest 20 billion yuan on
its group-buying site Nuomi to transform itself into an O2O service platform, on
which mobile Internet users can book or buy nearby offline services, such as
cinema tickets, taxi bookings or meals at restaurants.
The company's total revenue in the third quarter rose 36 percent year-on-year
to 18.4 billion yuan, Yin said, adding that Baidu is well on its way to make the
The financial report came days after Baidu announced a deal Cheap Nike Air Max 2017
Mens , which saw it take a 25 percent stake in online travel agency
Ctrip International Ltd. The deal makes the Nasdaq-listed company the biggest
player in China's online travel industry, an important sector for O2O services.
Analysts expect the deal to cut Baidu's costs in supporting Nuomi's
still-in-red online travel business.
Yan Honghui, an analyst with Beijing-based Internet consultancy Analysys
International, said Baidu is expected to benefit from the Ctrip, Qunar deal.
"The O2O sector is a cash-burning sector with investors pouring money to
offer incentives to get users," she said Cheap Nike Air Max
Mens , adding the deal is expected to boost Baidu's profitability
in the next quarter.
The O2O sector that provides people with location-based services is expected
to be a 10 trillion yuan market in China in the future.
Yan said the decision to transform into an O2O business comes from Baidu's
desire to achieve stronger growth in the future as its traditional search
advertising business has seen signs of flattening.
"Baidu used to be a company that matched information with search requests.
Now it wants to get closer to end users by matching services directly with
search requests," she said, adding the transformation can also leverage the
strength of Baidu's existing businesses, such as its map and payment services.
Though many of China's O2O companies, especially the smaller ones, have
become bankrupt due to fierce competition Cheap Air Max Vapormax

seems Baidu remains on strong ground.
Statistics from Analysys International showed that Nuomi's market share in
the group-buying industry has grown from less than 10 percent in the first
quarter to about 20 percent in the third quarter.
