Conflict also disrupts growth. Although many conflic

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio

s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so

urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.

But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th

ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc

ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.

Belt and Road can play vital development role

There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e

nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn

ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install

ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog

hinese sales of passenger vehicles, MPVs, SUVs and minivans in March dropped 12 percent on a yearly basis to 1.78 million units.

t month, while SUVs and sedans dropped 10.7 and 12 percent, respectively.

The decreases in 2019’s first quarter are mild compared with those at the end of the last year, CPCA said.

As the State-VI emission standards will be implemented from July 1 this

year, some Japanese brands have launched corresponding products ahead of their co

unterparts, and performed well in sales and consumer confidence, CPCA said.

“Automobile sales in North China, and those in the county and township level, are still weak,” the association added.

If the nose of the Boeing Max 8 model rises, threaten

ning a midair stall, the MCAS system automatically points the plane’s nose down

to gain speed needed to stay aloft. Boeing added larger, more fuel-efficient engines to upgr

ade the existing 737 airframe to compete with European rival Airbus. The new engines are positioned close

r to the fuselage, changing the aircraft’s aerodynamics and pushing the nose up in certain conditions.

Boeing created MCAS to make the new Max planes handle more like previ

ous versions of the 737, a popular model used by airlines around the world. Some in the aircra

ft industry, including pilots, have said Boeing did not provide adequate notice of the new plane’s flight ch

aracteristics or how to shut off the new anti-stall device if necessary. A group of pilots in

dependently compiled and circulated a 13-page manual about the new system. Oth

ers have said Boeing provided adequate notice of the changes and how to disable MCAS.

The version of MCAS installed on the Ethiopian Airlines pl

ane had relied on information from one sensor that sent back bad information.

We support the BRI globally because it’s a big project wi

ith so many applications in different parts of industry and the economy, and we want agreements, project by project.”

Raffarin was appointed special envoy on China affairs by French President Emmanuel Mac

ron. He pointed out that it is not pragmatic to have an agreement about every industrial sector, because, as sovereig

n states, both countries need to protect the interests of their own businesses and industries.

“It’s easier to go project by project, and, after some experience, we can add a larger vision,” Raffarin said.

His comments came after Italy signed a BRI memorandum of understanding with China during

Xi’s visit to Rome last week to become the first G7 country to join the global infrastructure plan.

According to China’s Ministry of Commerce, from January to November 2018, China’s direct investment in France reached $330 mil

lion. China’s growing investment in Europe has prompted concerns in the West, which Raffarin thinks are misplaced.

Extra pilot averted disaster on previous Boeing 737 Max 8 flight

An off-duty pilot in the cockpit of a Boeing 737 Max 8 jet jumped in to help

crew disable a malfu

nctioning flight-control system as it experienced difficulties in October, according to Bloomberg.

The next day, with a different crew, the same plane crashed into the sea off Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.

On doomed Lion Air Flight 610, pilots searched in a handbook f

or a way to stop the plane from nosediving, according to an exclusive Reuters report.

Reuters cites the information from three people with knowledge of the contents of the cockpit voice recorder that has never been made public.

Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) has refused to comment to CNN on the content of the voice r

ecorder as the investigation is still ongoing. Boeing also refused to comment to CNN on the matter Wednesday.

Indonesian authorities found the cockpit voice recorder in the Java Sea on January 14 and said it could take up to a year to publish a full report into the crash.

The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to

In a few weeks, the Spring Festival is coming, and we all look forward to it. During this period, we can rarely have a rest and get together with our families for a while. We can

also see relatives and friends we haven’t seen in a year. We all cherish this time. During this period, the most important program that everyone

cares about is the Spring Festival Gala. During the Spring Festival, the family sits together to watch the program and enjoy the rare time of reunion.

Even many families regard it as a ritual, which is indispensable every year. It is for this reason that the Spring Festival Gala is the most po

pular program every year. Everyone is particularly concerned about which program can be on, which actor will appear, and what kind of performance you can see. In the atmosphere of people’s special ex

pectations, a message suddenly came out: “The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to resume true singing.” Everyone was surp

rised to see the news. No one thought it had been lip-synching on this program. Netizens said that we had been deceived for so many years.

In fact, in the past few years, such news has come out, in thi

s stage, many singers in the performance, there will be obvious mistakes, such as the microphone has not yet picked up the voice, or the microphone has turned back but there is still voice. There are even many singers who h

ave said this on the show. Like Da Zhangwei on a program, it means that he was lip-synching on this stage, because his song rhythm is faster, it is easy to make mistakes, in o

rder to avoid such a situation, the program group let him record ahead of time, in the performance of the lip-synching can be. On his scene, he can make mistakes, but it is not allowed on this stage.

Many people have expressed their understanding of this situation, because the stage is too important, these programs are for th

e national audience, so the program group does not want to let any mistakes in the program, especially in the singing category, it is impo

ssible to adjust after the mistakes occur. Therefore, before the program, the singer must record, or even record many times,

select the best one to broadcast on the stage. Let go. But this is not true, in fact, the idea of the program is good, but they do not understand

the audience, for the audience, we all want to hear a more real scene, even some mistakes can be understood.

Between 83 and 93, the stage was full of lip-synching, not only that, but also tapes, which would be replaced immediately if there were any mi

stakes in recording. In 1994, the crew began to try real singing. Since then, real singing and lip-synching have been mixed up. So after that, you can hear some mistakes, and even the singer has gone out of tune.

In fact, whether it is true singing or lip-synching, it is for the audience, lip-synching is to avoid

mistakes, so that the audience can see the most perfect performance, and real singing is for more real performance, but also for the respect

of the audience, we did not want to see mistakes on this stage before, because this stage is too important, the audience is too wide, if there are mistakes, sure. There will be dissatisfaction.
