Four carriers-Swisscom, Australia’s Telstra and Opt

 and Sing-Tel of Singapore-will sell the as yet unnamed 5G Oppo phone first, which is scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of this year.

Shen Yiren, vice-president of Oppo, said the four overseas carriers are rolling out the 5G netwo

rks rapidly, so the company chose to first sell its 5G smartphones in Europe. Its partnership with Swisscom is the fastest.

The move marks the latest step by Oppo to build itself as an innova

tive brand in Europe, trying to lure consumers with cutting-edge products and design.

This is also proof of the company’s determination to conquer more develop

ed markets after its products became available in more than 40 countries and regions.

Kim Song, North Korea’s envoy to the United Nations, sent a

  r Monday to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres calling for the UN Security Council to drop the sanctions, North Korean state media reported.

  ”The ‘sanctions resolutions’ of the Security Council aga

inst the DPRK (North Korea’s official name), that prohibit even the shipment of computers and o

ther electronic devices widely used at societies and homes of today, are indeed the action against humanity to dest

roy modern civilization and turn the society back in a (medieval) dark age,” the letter read.

  The issue of sanctions has been a key sticking point in talks between Washington and Pyongyang.

  North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said North Korea asked for removal of five of the 11 sets of sanctions levied

by the United Nations — those that “hamper the economy and the livelihood of our people.”

  But the Trump administration has said that price was too steep for what North Korea was offering.

The effort is company-wide and will be unrolled in the ne

  About half of US teens use the social media site, and the number of American users 65 and olde

r has doubled to 41% since 2012, according to Hootsuite, a social media management platform.

  The Explore and hashtag pages of Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, also will not show or rec

ommend content that contains anti-vaccination messages, Bickert said, explaining the details with a simple example.

  If verified vaccine hoaxes — identified by World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control and Preve

ntion — appear on Facebook, the company will take action, she said: “For example, if a group or Page admin posts this

vaccine misinformation, we will exclude the entire group or Page from recommendations, reduce these groups an

d Pages’ distribution in News Feed and Search, and reject ads with this misinformation.”

  A page labeled “Your ad preferences” reveals how the social media site catego

rizes the interests of each user, a recent Pew Research Center survey noted. However, most survey

participants (74%) reported not knowing that a list of their traits and interests existed within the company’s data. And on

ce directed to their “ad preferences” page, half said they are not comfortable with the company creating such a list.

New rocket engine to lift heavier satellite loadcommercial

China has developed a world-class solid-propellant rocket engine that is expected to boost the country’s capabilities in launching small satellites, its developer said.

The Academy of Aerospace Solid Propulsion Technology in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, a subsidiary of China Aeros

pace Science and Technology Corp, announced that the first ignition test of the engine was successfully made on Tuesday.

The academy said in a statement that the engine uses several ad

vanced technologies and high-performance composite materials and has world-class capa

bility. It can be used with the country’s new-generation solid-fuel rockets, giving such rockets more power to l

ift small satellites and also promising good competitiveness in the commercial launch market, it said.

The academy said the engine has a diameter of 2.65 meters, contains 71 metric tons of solid p

ropellant and produces 200 tons of thrust-making it the biggest and most powerful known solid

-propellant engine in China. The engine that previously held that distinction is made by the China Aer

ospace Science and Industry Corp Fourth Academy in Wuhan, Hubei province, and produces 180 tons of thrust.

He also reused his “Pocahontas” nickname for Warren, claiming

  that he’s destroyed her career such that she won’t be the Democratic

nominee he’ll face in 2020.

  ”I should have saved the Pocahontas thing for another year because I’ve destroyed her politica

l career and now I won’t get a chance to run against her and i would have loved

it,” he said. “I don’t want

to knock out all of the good stuff and end up with somebody that’s actually got talent, that would be bad.”

  Trump also referenced his efforts to eradicate ISIS’ presence in Iraq, telling the CPAC audience that different gene

rals told him on his trip to Iraq that they could defeat the group in one week as opposed to two years.

  ”What I was told by a general who I had to fire, I said, ‘General, how long

before we get 100% of the ca

liphate?’ He said, ‘sir, two years.’ I said, ‘I can’t take it two years.’ And then I flew to Iraq,” Trum

p said. It was unclear to whom Trump was specifically referencing but former

Defense Secretary Gen. James M

attis resigned in December over disagreements with Trump over how to

pull troops out of Syria.

  Trump said that while in Iraq, he asked generals there why it would take

two years to “knock off two or three or four

percent, which is what we had left.” He said that a general he called “Raisin’

Cain” then told him, “‘It won’t, sir, if we atta

ck them in a different manner, we can do it much faster … we can have it totally finished in one week.'”

Group to map way out of vaccine morassational w s to ens

China has set up a national work group for immunization planning that will suggest ways

to ensure vaccines are safe, the head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday.

The work group, led by a vice-minister of health, will analyze all incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years to find

the root sources of problems, Gao Fu, head of the center, said at a news conference. He didn’t name the minister.

“Vaccines made in China are some of the best in the world,” said Gao, who is also a member of China’s top poli

tical advisory body. “We should have no doubt about the role of vaccines in disease prevention or the quality of vaccines made in China.”

For example, he said, by promoting immunization, some infectious diseases that

once seriously harmed people’s health in China, such as smallpox, have been eliminated.

Hepatitis B once infected more than 10 percent of the population of China, but now only 0.3 p

ercent of children under 5 years old are carriers because of mandatory immunization.

Gao made the comments in light of a series of incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years.

The UK government, a key US ally on intelligence and security

  is expected to decide this spring which suppliers can provide technology for 5G networks. If it chooses to allow the use of Huawei gear

  Britain is a particularly appealing target for interference as a close

US ally with a large Chinese ethnic community and an open, advanced economy, Parton said.

Is Zhou Yahui’s Cross-border Fraud the Truth of Zhou Yahu

When the content exposed by the news media on the Internet shocked the vast number of netize

ns, but the matter may not be true. You see, the chairman of Kunlun Wanwei was exposed to fraud. The content called Zhou Yahui’s transnational fra

ud. Once the news came out, Kunlun Wanwei Public Relations made the latest response and called it a pure slander. Let’s have a look.

Recently, an investor who claimed to be an ICST project was quoted by the self-Media as saying: “

Because of the blatant fraud of the ICST project side, the ICST tokens have been traded off the shelves at zero price; the StarMaker assets have been sold for two th

ings, and there is no hope of returning the capital.” And the accusation is directed at Zhou Yahui, chairman of Kunlun Wanwei.

Among the explosive materials provided by investors, Zhou Yahui complained that in the fourth quarter of 2017, he led the initiation of the ICST Block Chain Project to pass StarMaker

assets and conduct multiple rounds of ICO public financing, raising hundreds of millions of yuan. During 2018, Zho

u Yahui delayed promoting the commercial application of ICST Block Chain Agreement on StarMaker and refused to use the Maker Platform to buy ba

ck the net profit of each quarter. ICST; Zhou Yahui will make StarMaker one production, two sales and many other matters.

In response to the above complaint, the responsible person of Kunlun Wanwei Group’s Public Re

lations Department responded to reporters that this matter is pure defamation, and we are going through legal proce

dures. “(This matter) is a completely organized malicious attack, and we will follow up with public action as you can see.”

After Zhou Yahui’s transnational fraud was reported, a lot of netizens were shocked to hear about it. What they reported was only

defamation. Now they are going through legal procedures. The defamator will receive a notice from the court and face punishment more likely.
