hina will continue to support Chinese companies in deve

  loping cooperation with their Italian counterparts on telecommunications, particularly in the 5G network, Wang said.

  The two countries have witnessed productive economic cooperation in recent years. Bilat

eral trade topped $50 billion last year, while the two-way accumulative investment reached more than $20 billion.

  Xi also called for intensifying coordination with Italy in international affairs and within multilateral orga

nizations such as the United Nations, the Group of 20 and the World Trade Organization.

  China is ready to deepen communication and cooperation with Italy on major i

ssues such as global governance, climate change and WTO reforms to safeguard their shared in

terests, uphold multilateralism and free trade, and promote world peace, development and prosperity, Xi said.

  Regarding Xi’s visit to Monaco, Wang said it will open a new chapter for their bilat

eral ties, which have become a good example of interactions between big and small countries.

Soerjanto Tjahjono, the head of KNKT told CNN on Wednesda

were not aware of the details in the Bloomberg report. CNN continues to reach out to more officials at the KNKT.

Investigators said the jet experienced problems on its last four flights — including, crucially, the flight that crashed, according to Tjahjono.

Indonesian authorities confirmed that the plane’s angle of attack (AOA) s

ensor was replaced after a flight from Manado, in North Sulawesi to Denpasar, Bali on Oct

ober 28. The Boeing 737 Max 8 then made another flight to Jakarta that same day, and the pilots reported further problems.

The AOA sensors send information to the plane’s computers about the angle of the plane’s nose rel

ative to the airflow over and under the wings to help determine whether the plane is about to stall.

Software installed on Boeing’s 737 Max 8 planes, called the Maneuveri

ng Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), automatically lowers the nose of the pla

ne when it receives information from the AOA sensors that the aircraft is flying too slowly or steeply, and at risk of stalling.

The SEC sought to remove Musk as CEO of Tesla last year

  after he tweeted in August that he had secured funding to take the company private. It was eventually revealed that while

he’d spoken with investors, he hadn’t secured anything. The SEC said the tweet was “false and misleading.”

  The settlement allowed Musk to stay on as CEO, but he had to give up his role as chair

man of Tesla. He and Tesla were fined a total of $40 million, which Musk paid himself.

  The US District Court for Southern New York, which approved

the original settlement in October, will decide whether Musk’s February 19 tweet viol

ated the deal.While you were living your life on December 18th, 2018, a giant space rock exploded 16 miles above the Ea

rth’s surface, giving off 10 times the energy of the atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima. No big deal.

  The event is properly called a “fireball,” NASA’s term for “exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to to be seen over a very wide area.”

  With an impact energy of 173 kilotons, December’s fireball was the second-most powerful to enter Earth’s atmosp

here in 30 years. You may recall the first — it was that huge, blinding fireball that rocked parts of Russia in 2013.

This may sound catastrophic, but images being sharedf Decembe

  ’s fireball are actually quite poetic in scale. This atomic, otherworldly force appears as a simple red blip above the clouds.

  Some colour views of the #meteor that flew over the North Pacific in December 2018, taken by Japan’s #Himawari satellite.

  The meteor is really clear here – bright orange fireball against the blue + white background!

  But you likely didn’t know about it until now, because scientists only just noticed it.

That’s because the area where the fireball exploded, over the Bering Sea, is extremely remote.

  NASA’s Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson told the BBC s

uch a powerful meteor event only happens a few times every 100 years. (As a side no

te, “Planetary Defense Officer” is probably as close to a real-life “Avengers” title as you’re gonna get.)

  CNN has reached out to NASA for additional comment.

  In case you’re not uneasy enough about the reality that flaming extraterr

estrial objects are continuously pelting our fragile planet, they do so with alarming regularity.

  NASA keeps track of most of the notable fireballs and bolides (a similar astronomical term) that reach Earth. So far in

2019, there have already been five notable fireball events. Don’t worry, though! Most are super tiny.

  And if the big one ever comes along to make dinosaurs of us all, NASA’s Planetary Defense Office has our backs.

Apple on Monday quietly announced new versions of the

  Pad Air and iPad mini, the company’s first refresh for those products in years.

  Typically Apple (AAPL) creates fanfare around the arrival of new hardware. But this year it wants the focus of its upcoming spring press event to be on

its rumored streaming service. That’s why the company let the world know about its new iPads in a press release.

  The iPad Air comes with a bigger 10.5-inch display (starting at $499), and the iPad mini has

the same 7.9-inch screen (starting at $399). The devices support the Apple Pencil for the first time and

a processor that’s three times faster than the previous models.The iPad mini will mostly serve as an entertainment devi

ce, likely to attract students and teenagers, while the lightweight iPad Air replaces the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

  The iPads don’t offer any revolutionary experiences and probably won’t move the

needle too much in terms of sales. However, they may appeal to consumers looking to adopt some of the fun

ctionality of a higher-end iPad Pro, according to Ben Stanton, a senior analyst at Canalys.

About 100 million units of handsets are sold in Europe ever

year. We must build a presence there.”In the fourth quarter of 2018, Oppo outcompeted Samsung to

become the largest smartphone vendor in Thailand with a market share of 22.2 percent, gro

wing about 70 percent year-on-year, according to the market research company Canalys.

Its products and services are also well received in other South Asian and Sout

heast Asian countries, including India, and African countries such as Kenya.

In 2018, Oppo shipped 113 million units of smartphones wor

ldwide, garnering a global market share of more than 8 percent, according to IDC data.

Other Chinese smartphone makers, including Huawei, Xiaomi and Vivo, are also looking beyon

d their home turf for growth. In this context, Oppo believes it has an edge over others as it first started its i

nternational journey as early as in 2009 in Thailand, much before others jumped on the going-global bandwagon.

More than 41 percent of children and teenagers who sleep

too little use electronic devices such as computer tablets and mobile phones, the survey fou

nd, and youths whose parents use smartphones in front of them are more likely to have less sleep.

Other factors, such as noise and light pollution, contributed to the problem, the report said.

The survey also indicated that good sleep results in higher efficiency in study. Students who sleep longer generally fini

sh homework in two and three hours per day, while those who sleep less require four to six hours.

Gao Xuemei, vice-president of the society, said studies have shown that decreasing sle

eping time for children and teenagers has been a global trend in the past 10 years, but the problem appears to be

worse in East Asia, including China, largely due to a heavier load of school homework.

Lack of sleep among children and teenagers deserves high

attention, because it can seriously affect their health and growth,” she said. Such a group should sleep at least eight hours a day, she added.

Zhao Zhongxin, a professor specialized in treating sleep disorders

at Shanghai Changzheng Hospital, said getting adequate sleep is very important.

“Sleep promotes growth, protects the brain and improves the immune system,” he said. “Long-term deprivation of sleep will

bring risks of diseases and conditions such as dementia and cause lasting health damage.”

Wang Guanghai, a member of the Chinese Sleep Research Society and a psychological consultant, said the exces

sive use of electronics products in China is depriving children and teens of sleeping time.

“Some of them use tablets for more than four hours a day,” he said. “It has become a serious problem that affects minors’ health.”

  Earlier on Saturday, Ardern said the country’s gun law would be changed.

  She spoke to the public at 4:00 pm local time. She said: “This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days. My thoughts are with Christchurch.”

  ”It is an unprecedented violence in New Zealand. There is no place for such extreme violence in New Zealand.”

  ”Our gun law will be changed,” said Ardern, noting that the killers had a legitimate gun license.

  Five guns were discovered, two of which were semi-automatic guns, she said.

  Other weapons and firearms were also retrieved by the police after the attacks on Friday.

  Police Commissioner Mike Bush told another press conference that his top priority wa

s on public safety across New Zealand and was supporting the victims and staff involved.

  ”The investigation into the intelligence failures is also a priority,” Bush said.

  The police chief was joined by representatives from the agencies working on t

he ground — Victim’s Support, City Council, Civil Defence, Fire and Emergency and the Defence Force.

  Bush acknowledged the bravery of the public, police officers and emergency responders.

  He said the arrest took 36 minutes from the first emergency call.

The Chinese community in New Zealand’s Christchurch has

stood out following Friday’s terrorist attacks on two mosques, condemning terrorism and expressing their support for the victims by donating money.

Although there was no Chinese casualty in the attacks, the Chinese commu

nity is closely following the situation and cares about all victims, Canton Chamber of Co

mmerce in New Zealand, an organization of local Chinese merchants, said in a statement Saturday.

“No racism, no violence, no terrorism of any form!” said the statement.

The chamber has asked all its members to donate money for the victi

ms and is in contact with the Consulate General of China in Christchurch to voice support and

condolences for the victims on behalf of all Chinese in the city, said the statement.

The University of Canterbury Chinese Students & Scholars Society also expressed shock and regret over the atta

cks on Saturday, saying the atrocities have destroyed many people’s lives and aroused deep anger.
