Yutu 2’s scientific missions include surveying terrain, detecting minerals
China’s Yutu 2 lunar rover has entered its eighth p

上海千花坊女神会所In a statement sent to China Daily on Thursd
ay, the administration said the rover, China’s second movable robot on the moon after Yutu, was switched to dormant mode at around 5:50 pm on W
ednesday after receiving signals from groun

上海千花坊女神会所ble the distance covered by Yutu, which reache
d the moon in December 2013 and worked there until July 2016. The administration said that on the lunar day that just ended, Yutu 2 and Chang’e 4’s lander, wh
ich has also entered a dormancy period, obtained a great deal of scientific data.上海千花坊
A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. During the lunar
night, the temperature falls below minus 180 C, and there is no sunlight to provide power to the probe.

上海千花坊For most of the 19th and much of the 20th century, China was called, “the sick man of Asia”. But
those days are over. As President Xi Jinping observed, “China has bid farewell to the problems that p
lagued its people for thousands of years, including hunger, shortages and poverty.” In a matter of decades, China has suc上海千花坊女神会所
cessfully transformed itself from a closed and relatively backward country into a global economic and political power.
上海千花坊China’s ascendency is generating some questions. One question centers on the country’s role in glob

上海千花坊女神会所China has long been committed to keeping the yuan’s exchang
e rate basically stable at a reasonable and balanced level, the central bank said.
The Chinese currency is the strongest among the G20 and is one of the currencies that has seen substantial appreciation.
From the beginning of 2005 to June this year, the currency’s nominal e上海千花坊
xchange rate appreciated 38 percent and real exchange rate strengthened 47 percent.
Last month, the IMF found in its latest annual assessment that the renminbi exchange rate was broadly in line with fundamentals.上海千花坊女神会所
From the macro perspective, the yuan’s exchange rate is buoyed by the coun
try’s sound fundamentals, strong economic resilience, stable fiscal position, c上海千花坊
ontrollable financial risks, balanced cross-border capital movement and sufficient foreign exchange reserves.
China has no intention to gain trade advantages by devaluing its currency, as the yuan’
上海千花坊女神会所s depreciation cannot necessarily lift exports, said Song Xiangyan, an analyst with the PBOC.
A large devaluation probably leads to panic capital outflows and competitive currency devaluation of China’s trading par
tners, which will undermine the country’s financial stability and hurt imports, Song added.
China will be committed to the promises on exchange rates made at all G20 summit上海千花坊女神会所
s and abide by a market-determined exchange rate system, the PBOC governor Yi Gang said Monday.
Refusing competitive devaluation, the country will not resort to exchange r
ates in handling external uncertainties such as trade disputes, Yi said.

上海千花坊esday, following an illegal assembly held in Weste
rn District on Hong Kong Island on S Thus, Fan said it was not strange that some people from Taiwan were assisting and financing the violent protesters.
The city was in shock after masked radical pr
otesters escalated violence on July 1 by上海千花坊 storming into the city’s legislature and vandalizing the complex, resulting in an early recess of the legi
上海千花坊品茶微信slature and costing about HK$40 million to HK$
50 million ($5.1 million to $6.4 million) to repair. One of the lawless intruders, who took off his mask, was identified as a “pro-Hong Kong in
dependence” graduate of the University of Hong Kong and reportedly fled to the US through Taiwan.上海千花坊
It was also reported by the media that a large grou
p of violent rioters had fled to Taiwan to seek 上海千花坊品茶微信asylum shortly after July 1. Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen described them as “friends from Hong Kong” and sa
id the Taiwan authorities would consider their applications for asylum on humanitarian grounds.
Fan said the violent protesters, who were manipulated by external influences, intended to provoke and test the bottom li上海千花坊
ne of the central government by attacking the Legislative Council, the building of the Liaison Office of the C
上海千花坊品茶微信entral People’s Government in the HKSAR and defacing the national emblem.
The recent mayhem has also caused some to call into question liberal studies in the city.
In the wake of the violent attack on July 1, Tung Chee-hwa, vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Peo
ple’s Political Consultative Conference, China’s top advisory body, called liberal studies a total failure.上海千花坊品茶微信
The design of liberal studies is flawed, Fan said, since there are no syllabuses or te
xtbooks. It is up to the teachers to prepare teaching materials for students, Fan said.
上海千花坊Currently, liberal studies is a compulsory subject and examinations also are required.
“If students want to make high marks, they must follow what the teachers teach them an
d adapt to the style of the examination papers. In case the liberal studies teachers have上海千花坊品茶微信
strong political inclinations, they will instill anti-China and anti-establishment ideas in the mind of students.”

上海千花坊Vivek Singh, a spokesman for the space research group, told Xinhua on Thursday that
India appreciated China’s help in the disaster-relief efforts and that such mutual assistance was a good example of international cooperation.
上海千花坊As of Sun
day, the death toll in India’s flood-hit states had risen to more than 200. At least 11 million people have been directly affected. The International Charter on Space and Major Disasters is a worldwide collaboration platform, throug
h which satellite data are made available for the benefit of disaster management. It has 61 contributing satellites operated by 17 c 上海千花坊女神会所
harter members, including the European Space Agency and United States Geological Survey.
上海千花坊China signed the charter in May 2007 and first called for assistance under the charter in July of that year when deva
stating floods ravaged central and eastern parts of the country, according to the China National Space Administration.
To date, China has invoked the charter 24 times and obtained a significant amount of satellite d 上海千花坊女神会所
ata for post-disaster relief efforts, according to information published on the charter’s website.
上海千花坊女神会所The most recent time China activated the charter was in June last year when it asked for as
sistance to monitor a serious forest fire in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
China’s science-technology innovation board, dubbed the STAR Market, opened at the Shanghai Stock Exchange on Mon
上海千花坊day, and officials and analysts said it will help suppo

ial public offering system, a wider daily price lim
it and strengthened information disclosure requirements. 上海千花坊女神会所The first 25 companies listed on the board made a strong debut, with an average da
ily increase of 140 percent, possibly because
there is no price change limit for the first five trading days. At oth er A-share markets, there is a 10-percent daily price limit. Shanghai-based integrated circuit maker Anji Mi上海千花坊

400 percent to close at 196 yuan ($28.50) per share. There are over 3 million individual investors qualified to invest in the new board while the n
上海千花坊女神会所umber and scale of listed companies in the STAR Market is relatively small at present, leading to the firs
t-day surge of prices, said Yang Delong, chief economist at Shenzhen-based First Seafront Fund.
Trading rules set by the Shanghai exchange and the China Securities Regulator上海千花坊

Liu Zhongyuan, di上海千花坊女神会所rector of securities investment at the National Council for Social Security Fund, said at the listing cerem

His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊

Beijing will push forward its waste sorting le
gislation soon, and the newly revised regul上海千花坊品茶微信 ation will clarify an individual’s responsibility to sort domestic waste, a senior official said.
A municipal regulation in Shanghai covering
domestic waste management had taken effect on Monday and required every household and institution to sort上海千花坊 their trash into four categories: recyclable waste, hazardous waste, household food waste and residual waste.
Sun Xinjun, director of Beijing Municipal Commis
sion of Urban Management, said Beijing will follow suit soon without giving a possible date. “If the garbage is not sorted, the resident may face a fine of up to 200 yuan ($30),” he said上海千花坊品茶微信
, adding that the penalty will be no less than Shanghai’s garbage classification punishment.
Different from the four categories of separating trash in Shanghai, Beijing will use four other garbage classification sta
上海千花坊品茶微信dards: recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste, according to Sun.
Some departments and public institutions in the capital hav
e already implemented waste management. Beijing produces nearly 26,000 metric tons of do上海千花坊
mestic waste every day, and 29 garbage disposal terminal facilities are already operating at their full capacity.
In 2018, Beijing collected 9.3 million tons of household waste.上海千花坊品茶微信
