Mainstream will prevail in EU electionsballoon depicting the

Mainstream political groups will continue to dominate in elections to the European Parli

ament this week but probably will lose some seats to nationalist and far-right parties, analysts predict.

“There is no fear for the solidity of the EU-decision-making system”, said Sven Biscop, director of the Euro

pe in the World Program at the Egmont-Royal Institute for International Relations, a think tank based in Brussels.

But he urged “those who favor the European project” to not be complacent, as the rise of

populist and far-right parties has already become a major concern for the EU and its member states.

The image, which showed a ringlike structure with a da

ark central region-the black hole’s shadow-depicted the black hole at the heart of Messier 87, a massive, distant gala

xy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster. It is 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the sun.

It was one example of the role that Tianma has played in international coordinated

observations. Its super sensitivity has made its observations useful as a reference by which other parti

cipants in the network can adjust their data, according to the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory.

“Tianma elevated the image quality of the EAVN, by about 50 percent, making a great co

ntribution to the research on extreme objects in the universe, such as black holes,” Shen said.

At 65 meters in diameter, the radio telescope Tianma-or

 heavenly horse-located in the suburban Songjiang district, is the largest omnibearing movable telescope in Asia an

d is ranked third in the world in comprehensive performance. It began providing celestial observations in 2012.

While Tianma was not directly involved in the observations that led to the black hole image, its ability to see other phenome

na in the universe on certain wavelengths, contributed to the precise calibration of the final data for the image, s

cientists in Shanghai said. Tianma is part of the East Asia Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network, or EAVN.

the middle of this century, digital villages will be compl

pletely built nationwide to advance rural revitalization.

To fulfill such targets, the country will accelerate the construction of IT infr

astructures in rural areas, upgrading rural internet facilities and information services.

More efforts will be made to boost the rural digital economy, with wider use of digital technolo

gies in agriculture and the development of e-commerce and various emerging creative industries in rural regions.

While providing more support for rural technological innovation, the co

untry will strengthen ecological protection in rural areas with digital technologies.

Moreover, the guideline stressed the significance of improving internet access in rural areas in poverty alleviation and ca

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companie

 to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and

systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

ually encouraged China to increase investment in its high-tech sector. So, even if China and the US were to strike a de

al, China would be prompted to import lower volumes of energy and agricultural products from the US.

um for Asia, that China will grant 5G licenses this year, but didn’t disclose a specific date.

“5G, industrial internet and the internet of vehicles are among the country’s top development priorities in the teleco

mmunications industry,” Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, sa

id on Friday during the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.

Zhang called for accelerated efforts to set standards in key areas, including 5G, to expedite th

e commercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.

Major Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co has already unveiled its first 5G chip and first 5G fol

dable smartphone, the Mate X, which is expected to hit the market in June, despite challenges involving the United States.

n macroeconomic terms, the China-US trade dispute ha

as added huge uncertainties to the US economy and raised the likelihood of recession. Which could

thwart the US president’s chances of being re-elected in 2020. And the trade dispute could pre

vent the US from taking the measures it intends to in order to consolidate its national power.

As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stances and objectives

in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And the

fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.

China may grant official 5G licenses, instead of the interim licenses previously planned, to tel

ecom carriers this year and is likely to start commercial use of the superfast wireless technology na

tionwide in the near future, possibly as soon as October, according to people familiar with the matter.
