Palace Museum to get 5G technologyhen visitors to the

When visitors to the gigantic Palace Museum complex in Beijing feel a need to sit down for a cup

of tea or find a bathroom without a long line, they soon will be able to turn to their smartphones for the information they need.

This modern-day solution at the venerable compound comes thanks to an agreement

signed on Friday by the museum and Huawei Co, the telecommunication giant, to build a “sm

art network” using 5G technology, the fifth generation of mobile network communications.

Under the agreement, 5G Wi-Fi signals will cover the 720,000-square

-meter compound, China’s imperial palace from 1420 to 1911 and also known as the For

bidden City, and the branch museum of the institution under construction in northwestern Beijing.

But visitor comfort is not the only benefit of a 5G smart network.

Huawei will also provide the museum with cutting-edge technologie

s for the internet of things-devices or objects linked in a network-cloud computing and a

rtificial intelligence to facilitate such functions as management, security and preservation of cultural relics.

While China is already the world’s biggest gas importer, with

billion cu m of gas shipment last year, a

year-on-year increase of 31.7 percent, it has only 26 gas stora

ge sites with just 8 billion cu m in storage as of 2018, contributing 3 percent of the country’s total gas consumption.

Analysts believe insufficient infrastructure, including underground gas storage an

d natural gas pipelines, is standing in the way of a more open and liberalized domestic gas sector in the country.

Li Li, research director at energy consulting company ICIS China, also suggested that the government should encourage the construction of gas storage ta

nks to prevent future gas shortages during cold snaps, considering the country’s high dependence on oil and gas imports.

To ensure sufficient gas supply, the country’s national oil majors are also ramping up loc

al oil and gas output, adding thousands of wells at oil basins, shale rocks and deepwater fields nationwide.

Trump issues first veto of his presidency, says resolution ‘pu

  Deeming congressional rejection of his border national emerg

ency “reckless” and “dangerous”, President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presi

dency Friday, insisting the situation on the southern frontier amounted to a threat to Americans’ safety.

  ”Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it,” Trump said fr

om the Oval Office before officially sending the measure back to Congress without his approval.

  It is the first time in his two years in office that Trump has used his presidential v

eto power to block legislation and comes after a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to rebu

ke Trump’s use of his national emergency power to bypass Congress and fund construction of a border wall.

  Trump said the resolution, which would have reversed the national emergency, “put countless Americans in danger.”

Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never see

  so much hand movement. I said is he crazy or is that just the way he acts.”

  ”Study it, I’m sure you’ll agree,” Trump told reporters.

  The jab at O’Rourke was not just a throwaway. It was a return to the forensic targ

eting of political opponents that helped Trump dismantle the Republican primary field in 2016.

  Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time of national political angst and wi

th a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittli

ng opponents, to detract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida govern

or’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

ousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen, the Secretary Gener of the Or

  anization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), condemned the attacks. The OIC represents 57 nations with large or majority-Muslim populations.

  ”The brutal crime had shocked and hurt the feelings of all Muslims around the world, and served

as a further warning on the obvious dangers of hate, intolerance, and Islamophobia,” he said. Otha

imeen urged the New Zealand authorities to investigate the attack thoroughly.

  Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, tweeted his condolences to the victims of the attack,

and confirmed that there will be “highly visible” and armed police around mosques in the UK capital on Friday.

Sarah Sanders says it’s too “early in the process” for US to ground

  White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Fox News Tuesday said that it’s too “early in the process” for the United States to ground the fleet of Boeing 737 MAX 8s.

  Sanders said the decision will ultimately be a process and that the administration

will be in constant contact with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation.

  “We know a lot of people in the industry have started to voice concerns about the amount of technology and taki

ng the power out of the hands of the pilots,” Sanders said. “You saw the President talk about that in his tweets earlier today,” she added.

  President Trump tweeted earlier Tuesday that “airplanes are becoming far too com

  Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but ra
