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.

ustin Irwin anad James Berry took turns to steer their boat o

n Barkley Lake in western Kentucky, looking for Asian carp.

It did not take them long to spot a school of fish. Stopping the boat, Berry started to feed a 180-m

eter-long net into the water as Irwin maneuvered the boat to form the net into a large circle.

With the net in place, they then steered the boat in a circle, banging the hull with a wooden st

ick. Immediately, carp started to jump out of the water before splashing back in.

nt goals are firmly established in people’s minds, the significance of hosting the exhibition will have been achieved.

ut a careful survey by James Laurenceson, of the Austr

alia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology Sydney, of media stori

es on the subject showed that, with about 130,000 Chinese students in Australia, there were a mere four incid

Anti-China media stories focus on large campaign donatio

ns to Australian political parties by Chinese businessman Huan

litical parties, and this includes investors in mining, banking, food and aviation ind

ustries. In fact, there is no pattern of donations from China swamping political parties.

While the New Zealand attacks were crimes committ

But, no matter who is behind such attacks, countries should not stand idly by or question another cou

The author of Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereot

yped, Stigmatized, and Ignored said at the same time, people start to see the positive aspe

cts of living single, such as being free to pursue their passions, enjoying solitude an

d putting the people they care most about at the center of their lives, instead of a romantic partner.

Other factors contributing to the rise of one-person househol

ds include high levels of divorce, increased education that leads to more employment and be

tter-paying career opportunities, and increased longevity and improved health at older ages.

As of 2017, the average age of a first marriage for women was about 27.5, while it was

29.5 for men. Demographers estimate that about 80 percent of Americans will marry at some point in their lives.

That’s a lot lower than the 95 percent who married in the 1950s and 1960s, and it may drop somewhat more, according to Steph

anie Coontz, a marriage historian and author of Marriage, a History: How Love Conquered Marriage.

We will step up efforts to expand cooperation with sho

video platforms such as Kuaishou, Bilibili, Douyin and Huoshan, to obtain more data flows and encourage brands and buyers to do more live broadcasts,” Zeng said.

It also plans to tap into the social e-commerce sector, which is currently in its testing phase.

Experts say the livestreaming explosion is boosting China’s e-commerce sector. The new

format could display the commodities in more dimensions and increase users’ trust.

Cao Lei, director of China E-Commerce Research Center, said this method could attract consume

rs’ attention quickly and accurately as most of the livestreaming users are post-90s generation who are accusto

med to shopping online, as well as help online retailers to gain data flows and create a “real” shopping scenario.

“Immediate feedbacks could be given to merchants based on users’ instructions. Through their

mobile phones, consumers are able to talk with overseas buyers, which will greatly enhance users’ trust on the platform.”

China’s cross-border e-commerce sector has been growing rapid

ly over the past few years, owing to a rapid growth in the nation’s middle and high-income shoppers.
