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.

nd no one outside Mueller’s circle has any idea what his

  report — expected to be delivered to Attorney General William Barr soon — will say about the President’s conduct.

  But Thursday’s events did raise some political and legal questions about the ambition of Mueller’s prosecutors, their tactics whe

n confronted by a skeptical judge and the credibility being placed in Cohen’s deeply damaging testimony against Trump last week.

  In the win-loss calculation that has characterized Trump’s life, the President can extract some advant

age from the surprising courtroom drama. Anything that be spun as a blow to the special counsel will be seized on in Trump’s co

nservative media echo chamber in the campaign to bolster the President’s standing among core GOP voters that is critical to his long-term

viability.Mueller’s team had asked for a 19-25 year jail term for a tax and finance fraud conviction arising from Manafort’s lavi

sh lifestyle as a sharp suited uber-lobbyist who spun his dark arts for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine.

  That would have sent the 69-year-old Manafort to jail likely for the rest of his life. But the less than four year term shoc

ked many legal observers and sparked looks of astonishment among prosecutors in Judge T.S. Ellis’s courtroom.

  The judge’s leniency does not change the fact of Manafort’s convic

tion by a jury of his peers. A judge in Washington, who has been less well exposed toward Ma

nafort, will sentence him next week in a separate case, in which he has been accused of lying to Mueller and breaching a plea deal.

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”

According to a survey by the Ministry of Water Resources in

According to a survey by the Ministry of Water Resources in

there were 6,092 major sewage outlets along the Yangtze.

The Ecology and Environment Ministry also noted some improvements in w

ater quality nationwide. As of the end of last year, 95 percent of 1,062 black, odorous water

bodies in 36 major cities across China have been removed or cleaned up, the statement said on Feb 28.

The volume of good quality water nationwide has reached 71 perce

nt, a year-on-year increase of 3.1 percentage points, the statement said.

Zhang also highlighted other challenges to be faced. He said that many drinking water source

s in rural areas are still under weak management, and many rivers and lakes are in need of aquatic vegetation.

“We believe that by 2020 a repeatable and constructive tech

nology and work model will be developed as a reference for future work,” he said.

I worried that we would make concessions that were not

  alluci elaborated in a call arranged by the Stimson Center. He worried Trump would

go along with a Chinese and Russian proposal “that we give up joint ex

ercises with the ROK in exchange for the North Koreans giving up furthe

r testing of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.”

  There had been some concern that the US would sign off on a formal end to hostiliti

es with North Korea and, as a result, Trump would agree to pull US troops from the Korean Peninsula.

  The President had claimed that the removal of US troops from South Korea was not on the ta

ble, but there were still fears that Trump would change his mind at the last minute. During his post-su

mmit press conference he bemoaned — and exaggerated — the cost of maintaining a US military presence.

  Instead, Washington and Pyongyang are now at “a pause,” Galluci said. “There will be con

tinuing efforts to go beyond the place we are at. And this is a fine temporary position we’re at.”

As the West steps up its criticism of Myanmar over the Rohin

As the West steps up its criticism of Myanmar over the Rohin

Rakhine issues, the country’s relations with the West have deteriorated. China is one of the few powers

Myanmar can rely on. There is vast cooperation potential between the two countries. China and Myanmar can a

dvance industrial cooperation under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, the China-M

yanmar Economic Corridor and the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor. How to unleash M

yanmar’s huge development potential with the help of China should be placed on the NLD government’s planning agenda.

As Myanmar’s largest neighbor, China will continue to play an active role in promoting Myanmar’s nat

ional reconciliation and addressing the Rakhine issue as well as build mechanism for talks. It will assist My

anmar as much as it can. When investing in Myanmar, Chinese ente-invested projects, driven by nationalism an

d so-called environmental concern, are of no help in improving the country’s investment environment, and have hijacked economic development. Res

pecting the spirit of the contract is a basic requirement for modern states and their peoplrprises should pay attention to th

eir social responsibility. They should also address local people’s suspicions and misunderstandings on Chinese-inve

sted projects. We have reasons to believe that the prospect for China-Myanmar cooperation under the Belt and Road framework is promising.

Brazil’s Bolsonaro released from hospital after 17 days

Brazil’s Bolsonaro released from hospital after 17 days

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro was released from the Albert Einstein

Hospital in Sao Paulo on Wednesday after convalescing from surgery and returned to the capital, Brasilia.

Bolsonaro spent 17 days in recovery, mainly in intensive or semi-intensive care units, but worked from his bedside for m

ost of that time, with his vice president, Hamilton Mourao, filling in for him for two of those days.

On the presidential campaign trail last year, Bolsonaro was stabbed in the abdomen by

a lone attacker. He required a colostomy and underwent surgery in late January to reverse the procedure.

The surgical procedure reportedly went well, but his recovery had some complications. Last week, he had fever and was diagn

osed with pneumonia, but his health improved and doctors said he was able to leave the hospital and return to Brasilia.

Bolsonaro commented on social networks about leaving the hospital, noting that the ma

n named Adelio Bispo who had attacked him had been a member of the Socialism and Liberty Party (PSOL).

At the time of the attack, the PSOL admitted Bispo had been a member, but said he quit the political organization years ago and was never very active.

So far, investigations have not uncovered a connection between the attacker and any Brazilian political party.
