The ACR stands for Annual Confidential Report. The system of writing secret reports serves two purposes: to protect national interests and to maintain friendly relations between countries. National agencies may require foreign governments to supply them with confidential information about their activities.
China has accused U.S. intelligence officials of violating Chinese law by engaging in cyber-spying and said it would take appropriate measures in response. Foreign Minister Wang Yi told a news conference that China has the right to defend its sovereignty over its own territory. The comments came after The Washington Post reported that American spies have been collecting data from phones and computers throughout Asia, including in Hong Kong and Taiwan, where China has military facilities.
China does not trust America because they believe that our government spies on them. This belief was shown when China asked for details about how exactly Snowden got the documents he stole and then refused to deal with United States officials until they received an answer.
However, China does trust some other countries within the Western world.

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia. Ac (short for Academia) is used as a second-level domain for academic institutions such as universities, colleges, and research institutes in various nations. It was first introduced in the 1990s by Network Solutions, who owned the rights to this name since 1995.
According to Wikipedia, there are currently AC schools in every continent except Antarctica. The only countries that do not have an AC school are Australia and New Zealand. Both countries have multiple independent university systems with no central governing body or authority. Thus, they would not be able to apply for their own domain name since that would need approval from someone who could make such decisions.
Some countries may have AC schools but lack a formal system of universities. For example, Italy has a large number of unisitites all with different names and levels of acceptance. However, there is one institution called Accademia di Musica in Venice which is considered one of the most prestigious music schools in the world. There are also several other musical academies in Italy. All these schools offer degree programs in music performance or music education. They all have official websites but they are not free domains. Instead, they are purchased via the normal process like any other domain name. In fact, many famous musicians acquired their skills by traveling around Europe to study at various music schools.
Urine albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR), also known as urine microalbumin, aids in the detection of renal damage as a consequence of diabetes. It is calculated by dividing the amount of albumin in mg found in the patient's urine by the amount of creatinine in mg found in the patient's urine.
Albumin is a protein that is normally found in the blood at low levels. Increased amounts indicate that there is more albumin than normal in the blood. This extra albumin comes from damaged tissue or organs such as the liver or kidneys. The more severe the injury, the higher the level of albumin will be in the urine.
Creatinine is a waste product made by muscles when they break down fat and protein. The body removes creatinine through the urine. The concentration of creatinine in the urine is constant for any given individual. If you have increased levels of albumin in your urine, this means that you are suffering from kidney disease.
Microalbuminuria is defined as an albumin to creatinine ratio of 30-299mg/g or 3.4-33.3 mmol/L.
An ADR is an American depositary receipt in its entire form. An ADR is a negotiable paper issued by a US depositary bank that typically represents one proportion of a foreign firm's equity by a certain number of shares. The depositary bank acts as agent for the foreign issuer, who retains the right to determine how and when dividends are paid and other distributions made from the net income of the company. Investors around the world can purchase American Depositary Shares (ADSs) to gain access to this information.
The ADS is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol 'ADR.' As with all stock trades, there is a buyer-seller exchange between each investor and the company whose stock is being traded. The price at which an investor buys or sells ADSs reflects the value of the information being sold: the higher the price, the more valuable the information believed to be contained therein. The depositary bank charges fees for storing and handling information and securities, as well as any other ancillary services it provides to investors.
These fees are generally borne by the issuing company, although in some cases they may be passed on to the investor. Because the depositary bank is always a US entity, investors from outside the United States can only purchase ADSs through US brokers or financial institutions.
Companies issue ADRs to raise capital, as well as for other reasons.
