For example, in March, China provided a remote-sens

sing monitor report on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and

terrain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun se

Chinese couples should get one thing right: the educa

Teach children how to be a good person

People tend to get anxious when they are not certain about facing or handl

Last year, there were 150 million people 60 years or abo

above living with chronic diseases in China. Of those, 44 million

were fully or partially disabled and in need of regular nursing services, she said.

“With more nurses and nurse’s aides, the demand for nursing services from the elderly will be gradually met,” she said.

The commission will also encourage community health centers to provide more nursin

g services for the elderly in neighborhoods, Jiao said. They would include more beds and setting up day-care centers.

Regulations will also be released to encourage community health centers to pro

vide beds to the elderly at home, so family doctors can provide treatment there, she said.

“The disabled, whether fully or partial, will be the priority in nursing services,” Jiao sa

id. “We will release a detailed standard for evaluating nursing services for the disabled elderly

The economy has stayed on the track of steady gro

lopment this year,” Yuan told an NDRC news conference on Thursday in Beijing.

Data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed China’s economy grew at a faster-than-e

The growth was unchanged from that in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Zhang Chenghui, former director at the finan

EU gives PM May ‘flexible’ Brexit recess to Oct 31

European Union leaders gave Theresa May a new Brexit deadline of Oct 31, four months longer than the p

rime minister asked for, in a move the EU summit chair said would let Britain resolve its domestic deadlock on the issue.

“EU27/UK have agreed a flexible extension until 31 October,” European Council Pres

ident Donald Tusk tweeted after eight hours of talks that went into the early hours of Thursday.

“This means (an) additional six months for the UK to find the best

possible solution,” Tusk added on the eve of what would otherwise have been the day Britain

crashed out of the bloc with no deal to smooth the departure for businesses and citizens.

Britain, he stressed, could still leave earlier if May secures parlia

mentary backing for her Brexit treaty, or it could amend what it wants from a future trade pact. “Until t

he end of this period, the UK will also have the possibility to… cancel Brexit altogether,” Tusk added.

The agreement gives May more than the three months to June 30 that she asked for to bui

ld a parliamentary majority behind the withdrawal treaty she negotiated with the EU last year.

Chinese telescope collects largest data set on stars

China has released 11.25 million spectra – keys for understanding the properties of celestia

l bodies – acquired by the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope to astronomers worldwide.

As the world’s largest spectral survey telescope, LAMOST marks the world’

s first spectral survey project to obtain more than 10 million spectra, which will give

insights into chemical compositions, densities, atmospheres and magnetism of celestial bodies.

Among the data, there are 9.37 million high-quality spectra, twice the total number of other astronomic surveys intern

ationally. There are also 6.36 million stellar spectra, creating the largest stellar parameter catalog in the wor

ld, according to the National Astronomical Observatories of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences on Friday.

Finished in 2008, LAMOST began regular surveys in 2012. The telescope is located in Natio

nal Astronomical Observatories of China’s Xinglong Observatory, in north China’s Hebei province.

While May was addressing her lawmakers, MPs in the mai

n chamber debated eight other Brexit options, ranging from leaving abruptly with no deal to revoking the divorce altogether.

While there was no majority support for any, the option calling for a referendum on any depa

rture deal, and another suggesting a UK-wide customs union with the EU, won more votes than May’s deal did two weeks ago.

Oliver Letwin, a Conservative former cabinet minister who led parliament’s unusual power grab, said it ha

d been expected that none would immediately win a majority, and lawmakers would have another chance on Monday.

The uncertainty around Britain’s most significant political and economic change since W

orld War II has left allies and investors aghast. Sterling dipped after Wednesday’s events.

If May’s deal were to pass, her office said there would be a contest to replace her after May 22, when Britain would leave the EU.

According to the Ministry of Commerce, as of the end of N

ovember 2018, France had invested in 5,647 projects in China, with actual investment value amounting to $17.49 billion.

“There are no official rules for French enterprises to succeed in C

hina. The main rule is to respect the Chinese people,” said Raffarin.

Well-known by many Chinese people as a “good friend” of China,

the 70-year-old said he has visited China more than 100 times since his first trip in 1970.

Residents in Chinese mainland will be able to apply for passpo

rts and travel permits at every exit and entry management department across the coun

try starting from April 1, according to National Immigration Administration on Tuesday.

The travel permits refer to the documents allowing mainland residents to travel to and from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, it said.

Researchers have unearthed a trove of well-preserved

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.
