China and India are already working together to tackle t

 the impending oil crisis and the rising threat of the Islamic State group. China and India are the world

‘s largest and second-largest importers of oil and also the second-and fourth-largest buyers of liqu

efied natural gas. As such, energy imports are critical to their development. The US’ attempts at regime change in Ira

n and Venezuela-the world’s third-and fourth-largest oil suppliers-by imposing stifling sanctions accompanied by a m

ilitary buildup in the Gulf have raised the specter of the potential closure of the Strait of Hormuz.

China and India have revived their 2005 proposal and formed a “joint w

orking group on energy” to identify avenues for cooperation including how to rein in risi

ng oil prices. They already have a “joint working group on countering terrorism”. A

The US Treasury removed India from the watch list, whil

Chinese authorities have not used the exchange rate in prior easing cycles to support growth, and they are unlikely to do so now, as this could pose mac

roeconomic stability risk,” said Andrew Fennell, lead sovereign analyst for China at Fitch Ratings.

The world’s second-largest economy maintained its foreign exchange

reserves at $3.095 trillion at the end of April. The reserve amount was stable, although it sli

ghtly retreated from $3.098 trillion at the end of March, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

Li Yang, director of the National Institution for Finance and Development of th

e Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that China is unlikely to sacrifice foreign exchange reserves to def

end its currency, even if depreciation pressure rises amid any escalation in trade tension.

Telecom carriers, chipmakers and smartphone vendors

s in China are ready to commercialize 5G. China will directly grant 5G licenses, instead of the previ

ous plan to give several key cities interim 5G licenses, to better time the rollout,” said a source clos

ed to the telecom industry regulator who asked to remain anonymous because public statements are not authorized.

Michael Gao Wenhao, deputy general manager of the 5G industrial products line at ZTE, disclosed at a 5G conference in

Hong Kong on Thursday that “China is likely to start commercial use of 5G nationwide on Oct 1”.

He told China Daily that he got the information from the country’s major telecom operators.

China said earlier that it was considering a pre-commercial launch of 5G this year, follo

wed by large-scale commercialization in 2020. Miao Wei, minister of industry an

Fertility rates, meanwhile, remain astonishingly high in

n some countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. In a few of the poorest-Niger, Mali and th

e Democratic Republic of Congo-the rate is 6-7 children per woman. The resulting flood of new ent

rants to the labor market is far outstripping the number of jobs available.

Empowering women key to meeting challenge

No known growth model can accommodate or keep up with this k

ind of demographic surge. Even sustained economic growth of around 7 percent per year

won’t be enough. And although fertility tends to decline as incomes rise, that does not happen immediately. Em

powering women, therefore, may be the most effective way of starting to address the challenge.

China is the only country that lists forecasting earthquakes as a government responsibility.

Considering our limited knowledge about earthquakes, the forecasting work has to be based on observatio

n. However, the weak signals from underground are often disrupted by electromagnetic interference, he said.

He said that in cooperation with the government of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, his admini

stration has established a research institute to accelerate the development of new app

aratuses for underground detection that could reduce interference from human activity.

“We will also explore carrying out observational experiments in wel

ls from hundred of meters to 1,000 meters deep, and through scientific drilling that will penetr

ate active earthquake faults to gain more information about underground structures,” he said.

The Qiansimen Bridge, opened to traffic in 2015, cross

sses the Jialing River with a cable-stayed main span that is 312 meters, connecting the Jiangbei and the Yuzhon

g Districts. It’s the world’s longest single plane cable-stayed bridge by the length of main span with one tower.

Both are double deck structures carrying four lanes of traffic on their upper decks and two rail lines on their lower decks.

Tien-yow Jeme Civil Engineering Prize awards civil engineering projects that have made

great achievements on technological innovation and technological application.

The Twin River Bridges are sceneries by themselves while look

ing separately and complement each other nicely when looking together, according to its review on the o

fficial website of China Civil Engineering Society. “The bridges, blended with surrounding environment, are lan

dmark buildings combining transportation, landscape and technological innovation.”

It stated that an expulsion will be given to more seve

re forms of academic dishonesty including dissertation plagiarism or fraudulent pap

ers, after a review by the school’s academic committee. This constitutes a much heavier punishment compa

red to the previous measure, which involved recording a demerit on the student’s record in such cases.

The latest revision also added that students with serious acad

emic dishonesty during their education shall be given a warning and put on probation. At the s

ame time, the academic honors and awards previously granted to them will be revoked. Their qualifications for schola

rships and exemptions from admission exams won’t be restored until any punishment has been removed.

This is the latest senior executive departure for JD, which said in February th

The company is now facing tougher competition from rivals such as Alibaba and Pinduoduo. Chen Tao, an analyst at the Beiji

Myopia cannot be cured under current medical technol

ology, according to the notice jointly issued by six ministries including the National Health Comm

ission, the Ministry of Education and the State Administration for Market Regulation.

The notice also said that authorities would crack down on activities that deceive the p

ublic and damage their interests in the name of using Chinese medical technology to treat myopia.

Hu Ailian, vice-director of the Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology at Beijing Tongren Hospital, said tha

t myopia can’t be cured at the current stage but children and teenagers could prevent, control or slow its progressio

n by using their eyes properly, increasing outdoor time, and avoiding looking at close objects for long time.

Once parents find their children have problems with eyesight, they should send them to ophthalmic medical institutions for e

xamination, listen to doctors’ suggestions and receive vision correction, Hu added.

Autonomous driving needs to adapt to different roa

ad conditions. Test results under different road conditions are supposed to reflec

t the adaptability and technical mobility of the autonomous driving technology.

Expected to be one of the most important autonomous vehicle mark

ets by accounting group KPMG early this year, China has conducted road tests in a raft of its m

unicipalities and provinces, including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Guangdong.

As China’s center of scientific and technological innovation, Beijing has been a pioneer in developing self-driving technology.

The country’s first self-driving road test report notes that the capital is scheduled to scale up tests. It cites a plan that aims to have te

st areas of 500 square kilometers and 2,000 km of open roads for testing intelligent-connected vehicles by 2022.

Data show that since February 2018, Beijing has opened 44 roads, totaling 123 km for road tests.

As of the end of 2018, the capital had 54 registered autonom

ous-driving vehicles, accounting for more than 50 percent of the total nationwide.
