China leads in nuclear power constructionit is seen in Liany

China is taking a leading role in nuclear power construction, People’s Daily reported on Saturday.

With 54 nuclear power units under construction in 17 countries and regions in 2018, 11 are in China, making the country th

e world leader in construction of nuclear power units for years, China National Nuclear Corporatio

n Chairman Yu Jianfeng said at the China Nuclear Energy Sustainable Development Forum.

The focus of global nuclear power development is shifting from traditional nuclear powers to emerging economies, Yu said.

As a major country promoting the third generation of nuclear development, about 10 third-generation nuclear power units have bee

n put into operation or are under construction in China, accounting for one-third of the world’s total.

In the fourth generation of nuclear power development, China’s high-tempe

rature gas-cooled reactor demonstration project has entered into the final stage of installa

As recently as 1940, 61 percent of single-person house

eholds consisted of renters, but today owners are in the majority, with the 2013 American Hou

sing Survey reporting that 54 percent of single-person households were owner-occupied.

According to the survey, between 2003 and 2013, owners accounted for 55 percent of the growth in single-person househo

ds. And among single-person households led by someone under the age of 45, two thirds are renters, but among single-

person households with someone over the age of 65, owners are a 70 percent majority.

Single-person households tend to spend more on housing than ot

hers, and these households may prefer to rent rather tha

n buy houses. And even if they do buy a house, the preference is for multifamily homes

rather than single-family ones, according to Deloitte senior US economist Daniel Bachman.

That may influence the structure of the housing market, which is still recovering from the im

pact of the recession of 2008 and recent changes in housing finance, Bachman wrote in an article.

The roads were sandy and muddy in the past, causing him t

m to stumble on the roads. “One year, it was snowing, and I walked more than one hour to the s

chool. My colleague helped me half of the way — otherwise, I might have fallen into the gully,” he said.

Gao Yangyao, who worked with Gao Ziren for many years, said that “he has difficulty walking, but he is usually the first to come to school.”

Gao Ziren’s Mandarin Chinese was not so good in the beginning, and he continued listening to radio broadcasts to improve his pro

nunciation. When students had the wrong pronunciation, he would correct them, even when it cost the whole class time.

In 1980s, the mountainous area had poor teaching conditions, with a lack of desks and benches, so Gao br

ought some desks and benches from home. When some impoverished students had no stationery, he would buy it for them.

Gao Xiaomei, one of the first students Gao Ziren taught and now a school principal in Meiling, said that he taught child

ren carefully and usually walked close to students to help them solve problems. His carefulness led her to be a teacher.

Wan said the facial recognition system was developed

on Baidu’s EasyDL platform, a no-code tool that helps users build customized mac

hine learning models. The system was “trained” with thousands of images of cat faces.

The temperature inside the smart cattery is maintained at 27 degrees, at which cats feel most comfortable and relaxed.

It also has a ventilation system that monitors the air inside in real time.

Wan said stray cats in the neighborhood are more nervous at first and just wander aro

und curiously. After one brave mongrel made the first visit, others followed.

Stray cats are often emotionally sensitive, so the door will not close the minute a cat enters. The anima

l will have time to get used to the cattery without being jittery. Seven or eight cats come to rest in the shelter every day.

Resources like healthcare, education and culture are un

movable. However, internet blurs the boundary and allows people to access high-quality resources without leaving their home.

According to the action plan, China will promote Internet Plus in several sectors such as healthcare, elderly care, education and culture, to boost new con

sumption based on internet platforms, and develop online and offline coordinated consumption.

According to a report from the China E-commerce Research Ce

nter, in 2017, China’s online education market was worth 240.2 billion yuan, up 53.97 perc

ent from the previous year. The figure is expected to grow to more than 400 billion yuan in market scale in 2018.

The upgrade in information capacity usually brings about great changes, Wang Zhenzhong, an engi

neer from Alibaba Group, told the newspaper. “It will upgrade the former consumption and create new consumption sectors.”

The program, customized for primary school student

nts, features smaller basketballs, lower rims and more accessible courts on campus to make the already popular sport even more appealing.

Yao, at 2.26 meters tall, has been a towering figure at two sessions meetings since 2013. But this year, instead of making

new proposals, he chose to focus on gathering more support from governmental departments to expand the program.

“It has to be a collaborative effort between the sports and educa

tion departments,” said Yao, an eight-time NBA All-Star with the Houston Rockets.

“To make it campus-based means we don’t count on it to cultivate future pro players. … We b

elieve participation in team sports helps children grow stronger as individuals physically and mentally.”

Wang said science and technology is a double-edged

sword. For example, the development of artificial intelligence repr

esents progress in the use of digital tools, but there are privacy concerns in the use of biometric ide

ntification. Gene-editing technology offers ways for humans to better understand themselves but raises debate.

Wang stressed the development of science and technology should be focused on fostering advantages while avoiding harms.

Scientific research and science commercialization require a strong sense of s

ocial responsibility and scientists should take into account all aspects, including morality, ethics, social resp

onsibilities, academic conduct and laws when doing research or putting their achievements into practice, he said.

To build an innovative country, scientific literacy of members of the public also needs to be improved so they will form a natu

ral tendency to discern and respect science and do more positive things in society, he said.

Fourth, China’s urbanization level is about 60 percentbut it

estimated to increase to 75 percent, even 80 percent by 2035, which will create more challenges for the ho

usehold registration system, public services and public fiscal expenditure. These problems demand greater attention.

The authorities also have to maintain a relatively high level and pace of research and development. China’s investment in basi

c research accounts for only 5.5 percent of the overall R&D investment. The corresponding figures for the US and Fr

ance are 17 percent and 25 percent. Which means China’s long-term development requires more investment in

basic technologies, in the absence of which its high-quality and healthy development could suffer.

Moreover, investment will be the main momentum of China’s econom

ic growth for a long time to come. But given that A share listed companies’ return on inves

tment is only 3 percent-a rather low rate-the investment environment needs serious improvement.

The detained militants — Masood Azhar’s brother Mufti

Rauf and son Hammad Azhar — were named in a dossier that India had sent to Pakistan i

n the wake of the Kashmir bombing and were being held in what Pakistan called “preventive custody” as there

was no “actionable proof” against them, Islamabad’s Ministry of Interior Secretary Azam Khan said to reporters Tuesday.

According to India’s Foreign Ministry, the dossier co

ntains specific details of JeM complicity in the Pulwama terror attack and the presence of JeM terror camps a

nd its leadership in Pakistan.
In the wake of the February attack, India called on its neighbor to “take credible an

d visible action … against terrorists and terror groups operating from areas under their control.”

Last week, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi confirmed to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that JeM chief

Azhar is in Pakistan and “very unwell.””He is unwell to the extent that he cannot leave his house,” he said.
