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.
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

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.
’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.

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

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

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.
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.
