Abstract The growth of China’s GDP has fascinated economic theorists for years. The country has grown in a relatively short time from an underdeveloped nation to the second biggest exporter and consumer in the world. The growth can be attributed to three primary factors, namely, a government with extensive experience in the pitfalls of communism and a healthy approach to free markets, strong support from the primary and secondary economic sectors, and abundant labor and land resources. Besides, the entry of China into the global market sustained the growth. The admission allowed the country to focus on primary and secondary sector exports on a scale that few other nations can achieve.

Abstract The study of vertebrate skeletal muscles shows that they have many similar features with the Crustacean muscles, though there are few differences. Crustacean muscles of a crayfish show that as the weight of the body increases, the volume of the muscles in the abdomen increases in a direct proportion. Sometimes, crustacean muscle fibers do not function the same way as other vertebrates. For example, as the length of sarcomere increases, the length of the crustacean muscle fibers also increases. During ontogeny, there must be a constant increase in range for both myosin filaments along with actin filaments to lengthen the sarcomere muscles.

Introduction 2 Timothy 3: 14 – 17 reveals that the Bible provides every insight that one requires to lead a decent, fulfilling, and productive lifestyle. The verse regards the Bible as God-inspired guidebook for teaching, correcting, rebuking, and educating people about the value of being righteous. In doing so, individuals become servants of God that are committed to propagating the gospel globally with the help of the attained knowledge. The readings are a fountain of hope and a source of inspiration to undertake noble activities for the service of others and the glory of the lord.
