At present, there are more than 800 13- 18-year-old students at the S

Uppingham school was founded in 1584. The famous British educator Edward Thri
ng (1821-87) used to be its headmaster and took the lead in proposing the concept of “all-around education”.

fossils representing more than 50 previously undescribed animal species dating back 518 million years.
The soft tissues of their bodies, including muscles, organs, eyes and mouths are still visible in some
of the 4,351 fossils discovered in Yichang, Hubei province, according to a new study published in the journ
al Science on Friday. The excavated fossils represent 109 species, including known jelly fish, arthropods and algae.
Fu Dongjing, associate professor at Northwest University in Xi’an, Shaanxi, also the first author of the paper, said the research g
roup started exploring the ancient ruins in the summer of 2007, in Changyang Tujia autonomous county. It was lo
cated on the bank of Qingjiang River where a representative insect from the Cambrian period was first found.
The new trove of fossils called the Qingjiang biota－the living organisms of a region－ha
ve the potential to greatly inform the understanding of early animal evolution, according to the study.
About 542 million years ago, life on earth diversified at an extremely rapid pace, known as t
he Cambrian explosion. Almost all present animal categories appeared at that time. Many creatures wen
t extinct in the process of evolution, but others became the initial form of future organisms.
llati said, noting that the Italian and Chinese peoples have always trusted each other and
maintained profound friendship, with close ties in such fields as economy and trade, and culture.

China and Italy are major countries that boast a rich culture, she said, adding that Italy is willing to boost communication and c
ooperation with the Chinese side in such fields as culture, art, language, heritage protection, tourism, science and tec
hnology, and innovation, and encourage their youths to increase exchanges and mutual understanding.
It’s very likely that any consensus that could be reached across the Commons would be a softer Brexit than the one May is currently pursuing.
That, I am afraid, is still a fairly open-ended answer. It might mean the need to renegotiate, which would mean a longer exten
sion, which would mean being in the EU elections, which could mean a second referendum, ultimately.
The key point here is that cross-party consensus might soun
d nice, but on an issue as divisive as Brexit, it’s as likely as anything to blow up both main parties.
While things are far from rosy and three weeks is not enough t
ime to sort much, it’s worth noting that while Brexit might not be going terribly well, the last thr
ee years have been a huge learning curve for the entire UK. We know more now than we did.
So while the next bit of the Brexit process might look crunchy, the decisions made in the coming days will not be made lightly.
