In recent years, China has embraced new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and big data, to provide lifelo
ng, equitable and personalized educational opportunities for its 518,900 schools and 276 million students at all le
vels－the world’s largest education sector, according to the Ministry of Education.
In a congratulatory letter to the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence a
nd Education in Beijing last month, President Xi Jinping said China is fully using the advantages of AI and has dee
pened its integration to facilitate reforms and changes in the education sector.
gious Luxun and Maodun literature prizes, including Ge Fei, A Lai and Su Tong, together
with a group of renowned Shanxi writers and poets gathered that week to discuss literary depictions of the countryside.
The village has a literary tradition which dates back to the mid-20th century, when a new Chin
ese modern literary genre shanyaodan, a nickname for a potato that’s popular in North China, emerged.
Authors who follow the shanyaodan school of writing such as Zhao Shuli, Ma Feng and Xi
Rong were all living in the Shanxi countryside, where their work centered around rural life there.
Many of Ma’s works in particular were written in Jiajiazhuang, where he witnessed the changes to the village broug
ht about by the agricultural cooperatives during the 1950s after moving to work in Fenyang.
ependently, the researchers found that in certain instances, like longitudinal contractions, both layers o
f muscle are active, possibly allowing the animal to expel the influx of water that is constantly flowing into its cells.
Each individual cell also appeared to serve more than one function, and participate in more than one activation pattern. In
fact, the nerve nets appear to play a relatively limited role in movement. Neurons may initially trigger the a
ctivity, but the patterns of propagation are organized by the muscle cells themselves working in unison.
“The patterns of activation we identified were not implement
ed by specific, dedicated cells, but instead depended on the properties of the muscle tissue as a wh
ole, and the interconnections between cells,” said first author John Szymanski, a former MBL Whitman Center investigator.

he much-anticipated debate between a Chinese anchorwoman and an A
merican counterpart on a prime-time TV show Wednesday night turned out to be more like
a Q&A session, with the host and her guest disputing everything from tariffs to China’s developing nation status.
But Trish Regan, host of Trish Regan Primetime on the Fox Business N
etwork, and Liu Xin, who anchors The Point on China Global Television Network, or CGT
N, seemed to agree that something must be done to break the impasse between China and the US, which are em
broiled in a protracted trade dispute with the Trump administration escalating tariffs and Beijing retaliating.
Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs hav
e been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.
US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, an
d rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the
Chinese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.
To eliminate bad outcomes from trade tensions, further opening-up in China’s services sec
tor, together with high-tech development supported by artificial intelligence, will help lift Chinese eco
nomic growth from 6.3 percent to around 7 percent by 2035, said Zhu Min, a former deputy managing director at the IMF.
The topic “Hotpot can be eaten by one person” has attracted about 56 million hits and more than 17,000 posts.
Cai Yani started dining alone in 2012, just after she quit her job as a maga
zine editor. During her period without work, she ate alone, but she discovered that ma
ny restaurants, especially those serving stir-fry, were reluctant to receive solo diners.
In response, Cai started filming her Solo Dining series. Each episode lasts about three minute
s and features one meal made by one person. The short series has attracted millions of views on Youku, a vid
eo-sharing platform in China, and its social media account has more than 1 million followers.
She believes the growing popularity of her films, as well as many othe
r videos and publications dedicated to eating alone, is not only due to the rising number
of singletons in China, but also the growing stress of living in big cities that pushes people to seek comfort in food.

he fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said his go

unexpectedly looks set to retain office, saying the victory was for the “quiet Australians” who supported him.
“I have always believed in miracles!” Morrison told an e
