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.

Some 50 poor households of Shangyan Village used

to live on an inhospitable strech of benchland, which was a major cause of the poverty.

Local officials had attempted to help them get rid of poverty through relocation, one of China’s poverty-relief strategies to

encourage people striken by harsh natural conditions to move to livable places, offering them government subsidies.

But many villagers stubbornly refused to move, due to doubts and a lack of knowledge about related policies.

Soon after she assumed office, Ma set up a tent at the entrance of Shangyan Village to live temporarily there.

She knocked the doors of those reluctant to move, sat in their yards, and p

atiently answered their questions, including whether they would gain sufficient subsid

ies or get used to the new houses. After two weeks, 51 households signed the relocation agreement.

Ma has also led villagers to take tailored measures to increase their incomes based on each village’s conditions.

With 32 turbines by the blue sea, the Punta Sierra wind far

rm has been in operation since Feb 4, 2018.

It is the first Pacific Hydro wind farm in Chile and the first wind farm invested in by China in the South American country.

The $150 million project, financed and constructed by China State Power Investment Corpo

ration, has an installed capacity of 82 MW and will generate about 282 GWh/year, which can meet electri

city demands for 130,000 households and reduce carbon emissions by 157,000 tons per year.

Located in Russia’s Yamal Peninsula in the Arctic, the Yamal liquefied natural gas project reached f

ull production capacity with its three production lines, each of which has a capacity of 5.5 milli

on tons per year, with operations starting in December 2017, August 2018 and December 2018, successively.

The project is the world’s largest of its kind within the Arctic Circle and is also the first m

ega- energy cooperation project implemented in Russia after the Belt and Road Initiative was proposed.

It is owned by Russia’s Novatek (50.1 percent), France’s Total (20 percent), China N

ational Petroleum Corporation (20 percent) and China’s Silk Road Fund (9.9 percent).

Instead of solely emphasizing high yields, the Green Su

 Super Rice project is geared to guarantee stable yields while beefing up crops’ resistance against drought, flooding and diseases,” Li said.

“Thus, farmers are able to save a large amount of resources, such as fertilizers or irrigation water, to fight those issues,” he added.

The sustainability of the approach is welcomed by Philippine agricultural researchers and farmers, according to Jose

Yorobe, a consultant with the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines. He attended a meeting in Beij

ing on Tuesday, along with dozens of representatives from participant countries, that marked the project’s conclusion.

“Because of climate change and population growth, developing countries are now pressured to increase rice prod

uctivity,” he said. “Some high-yield modern varieties are still vulnerable to inclement weather, pests and disease.”

April 1 is a special day for fans of Leslie Cheung. This yea

arks the 16th anniversary of the death of the singer and actor due to depression.

“I am who I am, a different colored sparkle. I love myself, just like the blooming rose wa

iting to flourish even in the desert,” Leslie Cheung sang in one of his musical masterpieces I. He is consi

dered “one of the founding fathers of Cantopop” for achieving huge success both in film and music.

Starting his career as a singer in 1977, Cheung rose to fame six

years later thanks to the song The Wind Blows On. He has released many popular albums and r

eceived numerous music awards, including being honored as Asia’s Biggest Superstar at the 2000 CCTV-MTV Music Honors.

However, there’s much more to him, beyond his superior musical accomplishments. In the late 1980s, he shifted

his career focus to the movie industry and shaped many classic roles that no one can rival, even to this day.

Some have said you might not really know Leslie Cheung’s music, but you’ve probably seen at least one or two of his sentimental films.

“He is a top Asian giant, has exciting stage performances, astonishing beauty and excellent acting skills,” a CNN report once said about him.

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.

According to the 2018 International Energy Agency re

port, global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose by 1.7 percent to 33 gigatonnes last year, the highest level since

2013. Coal use in power generation alone surpassed 10 Gt, accounting for one-third of the total increase.

The fact that most of the increase in coal use comes from coal power plants in developing Asia points to the harsh reality that greenhouse gas emissions are the cost be

ing paid for development. That the majority of coal power plants in Asia are only 12 years old on average, decades short of the

average life span of around 50 years, shows how challenging it is to cut CO2 emissions and maintain economic growth.

That the developing countries obtain help from their developed co

unterparts in both funds and technologies is essential to the fight against global warming.

It is high time that countries appreciated the urgency of this comm

on challenge and how important it is for concerted efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 61,000 people were indicted in connectio

n with related crimes last year, and a group of mafia-like gangs that had been bullying people were punished.

Faced with an increase in crimes that harm minors in recent years, the top procurato

rate and all provincial-level procuratorates have established special prosecutorial departments to handle cas

es involving minors — the first such practice among all judicial agencies in the country, Zhang said.

A total of 1,761 chief procurators across the country have held concurrent posts as vice-principal

s of primary or middle schools in charge of education about the law and to ensure a safe campus, he said.

To better handle petitions from the public, the top procuratorate has instructed prosecuting

authorities to put themselves in the place of the petitioners and provide feedback on each petition within seven days.
