China’s Chang’e-4 probe, launched on Dec 8, 2018, made the first-ever soft landing o

A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. The Cha上海千花坊

As a result of the tidal locking effect, the moon’s revolution c

The scientific tasks of the Chang’e-4 mission include low-frequency radio astro

System disruption hit Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) cont

Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), the company which manages most of the

上海419country’s airports including KLIA, said in a statement that all 38 remote bays at th

e main terminal were not able to proceed to the scheduled gates as they were still being occupied.

The operator had also provided additional buses to ferry passengers between the remote bay上海419品茶微信

s and the main terminal at the airport’s carpark.

“This is to ease the flow of passengers at the gates affected by the dela上海419

yed flights. We had also extended the operating hours at all our other airports nation

wide last night in order to cater to the delayed departing flights from KUL,” the statement said.上海419

“Please be informed that MAHB has made various efforts to improve the situation

上海419品茶微信including replacement of the defective hardware and MAHB has extended its working hours to resolve this

problem,” Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said in a statement.

上海419The disruption started on Wednesday night in several airport systems such as WiFi connection, Flight Information Disp

lay System (FIDS), check-in-counters and the Baggage Handling Systems (BHS).

Qin Chuan, president of the Chinese Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences, said improved ethical supervisio

“But it is important for the development of science and technology for

Xi mentioned many times in his remarks the need to increase support for the protection o

In a written instruction to a national meeting on cultural relics protection in April 2016, Xi called cultural relics “a val

When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and

上海419品茶微信Development at Peking University in June last year, she had a thick book in her unwieldy luggage.

Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book — Xi Jinping: The Governance of China — is import

ant to her because it gave her insights about China’s development as well as the governing of the world’s most popu上海419

lous country by the Communist Party of China, and she wanted to share it with her colleagues.

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p上海419品茶微信

resident of China in March 2013, the country’s diplomacy has opened new prospects and achieved new progress.

上海419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

ciples of the top CPC leadership’s governance and also helps foreign people better understand China’s development

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.上海419品茶微信

‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices for上海会所品茶微信

many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.

For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.上海会所

In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.

Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan

上海会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu

an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.

According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivation上海会所品茶微信

of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.

上海会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st

erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t

rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.

The wide application of modern farming techniques ha上海会所品茶微信

s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.

At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill

ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.

上海会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra

tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.

The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign l上海会所品茶微信

aunched in 2005. It aims to tailor the use of synthesized fertilizers to suit local soil conditions

and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.

is year, the government had predicted GDP for 2019 would have been between 2 and 3 percent.

The downgrade in the forecast was attributed to the negative impact of prolonged pr

China has repeatedly accused the US of interfering in Hong Kong affairs and urged it to stop. While the US has denied th

On Monday morning, police in Wuhan, Hubei province, destroyed a number of air

上海419论坛品茶微信guns, shotguns and replica firearms as well as explosives and detonators by melting

them in a steel plant furnace, which was stoked to reach temperatures of up to 1,600 C.

“Gun- and explosives-related cases endanger people’s lives, public security and the co

“We will take effective measures to curb gun- and explosives-rel

In recent years, although such crimes have declined sign

In order to tackle the issue, the ministry, together with 23 other authorities, set up a mini上海419论坛品茶微信

sterial-level meeting mechanism under which they will share intelligence in a timely manner and take required acti

on. In February 2018, they launched a two-year campaign to crack down on weapons crimes.

Last year, police nationwide dealt with more than 30,000 gun- and explosives-related cases, u
