Debates on whether the central bank needs to further ease monetary policy or not are continuing amo

ng analysts, with their emphasis on guessing the next liquidity injection through reducing banks’ reserved deposits.

Supporters of monetary easing expect that another cut in the re

serve requirement ratio (RRR) may come no later than this week, as a liquidity shorta

ge may occur after commercial banks pay back 366.5 billion yuan ($54.65 billion) to the central bank on Wedn

esday. That amount of interbank lending was conducted previously under the medium-term lending facilities (MLF) scheme.

Opponents, however, contend that the current liquidity is sufficient, and any further ea

sing will fuel inflation risks, especially as Chinese economy has started its upcycle.

The central bank’s monetary policy committee held the first quarter’s regular meeting on Friday.

The members achieved a consensus to continue the counter-cyclical measures and stren

gthen coordination between monetary and fiscal policies. Policy fine-tuning should be at the proper time, to prev

ent risks with the priority of stabilizing growth, according to a statement after the meeting.

“So far nearly 200 Chinese scientists from more than 30 dome

stic research institutions and universities and about 30 researchers from at l

east eight other countries-including Russia, Italy, Germany and France-have participated in the pr

oject,” said Tu, who is also director of the gravitation center at the Wuhan university.

Shen Zhiqiang, head of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, and a membe

r of the EHT team, said the success of the first black hole image has encouraged Chinese scientists to engage in mo

re international collaboration and boost the country’s ability in studying deep space.

Chinese scientists participated in Hawaii and Spain in the observations

that yielded the black hole image. They were highly involved in follow-up data analysis and th

eoretical explanation throughout the two years that followed the five-day observations in April 2017.

European Union leaders gave Theresa May a new Brexit deadline of Oct 31, four months longer than the p

rime minister asked for, in a move the EU summit chair said would let Britain resolve its domestic deadlock on the issue.

“EU27/UK have agreed a flexible extension until 31 October,” European Council Pres

ident Donald Tusk tweeted after eight hours of talks that went into the early hours of Thursday.

“This means (an) additional six months for the UK to find the best

possible solution,” Tusk added on the eve of what would otherwise have been the day Britain

crashed out of the bloc with no deal to smooth the departure for businesses and citizens.

Britain, he stressed, could still leave earlier if May secures parlia

mentary backing for her Brexit treaty, or it could amend what it wants from a future trade pact. “Until t

he end of this period, the UK will also have the possibility to… cancel Brexit altogether,” Tusk added.

The agreement gives May more than the three months to June 30 that she asked for to bui

ld a parliamentary majority behind the withdrawal treaty she negotiated with the EU last year.

 Super Rice project is geared to guarantee stable yields while beefing up crops’ resistance against drought, flooding and diseases,” Li said.

“Thus, farmers are able to save a large amount of resources, such as fertilizers or irrigation water, to fight those issues,” he added.

The sustainability of the approach is welcomed by Philippine agricultural researchers and farmers, according to Jose

Yorobe, a consultant with the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines. He attended a meeting in Beij

ing on Tuesday, along with dozens of representatives from participant countries, that marked the project’s conclusion.

“Because of climate change and population growth, developing countries are now pressured to increase rice prod

uctivity,” he said. “Some high-yield modern varieties are still vulnerable to inclement weather, pests and disease.”

n chamber debated eight other Brexit options, ranging from leaving abruptly with no deal to revoking the divorce altogether.

While there was no majority support for any, the option calling for a referendum on any depa

rture deal, and another suggesting a UK-wide customs union with the EU, won more votes than May’s deal did two weeks ago.

Oliver Letwin, a Conservative former cabinet minister who led parliament’s unusual power grab, said it ha

d been expected that none would immediately win a majority, and lawmakers would have another chance on Monday.

The uncertainty around Britain’s most significant political and economic change since W

  yed a part in bringing his younger brother’s business to the brink of collapse.

  The Mumbai billionaire stunned India in September 2016 when he launched a ne

w mobile network called Reliance Jio that offered customers six months of free high-speed internet.

  The move triggered a brutal price war, forcing some companies to quit the market altogether, including Reliance Communications.

  Indian billionaire turns to bankruptcy court after losing 4G price war with his brother

  Anil Ambani’s company, once one of India’s biggest mobile pl

ayers, announced in late 2017 that it would sell its main consumer mobile business to Reli

ance Jio in order to focus on providing data services to corporate clients.

  That deal has now been abandoned, the two companies said Monday. An Indian bankruptcy court will instead auct

ion off Reliance Communications’ mobile assets to pay off the company’s $7 billion debt.

  The Ambani brothers have had a tumultuous and often acrim

onious relationship. After the death of their father in 2002, they waged a bitter succe

ssion battle for control of the vast Reliance business empire that he had spent decades building.

  When I woke up Friday morning to the news of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, I felt sick. But sad

ly, not entirely surprised. I had been dreading this kind of violence happening, although I would have never imag

ined this kind of scale — 49 Muslim men, women and children killed in cold blood with such clinical, methodical precision and filmed for social media.

  Islamophobia is on the rise and has been for some time. Muslims have been demonize

d, dehumanized and scapegoated on an industrial scale by society since 9/11.

  No other group has been punished for the sins of the father in such a systematic and accepted way. Politicians, commen

tators, influencers and the media on the right have waged a war against Muslims that has become normalized.

  The most powerful man on the planet, President Donald Trump, has sought to ban them fro

m entering the United States. British prime minister hopeful and former Foreign Secretary Bori

s Johnson made “jokes” insulting Muslim women, saying they looked like letter boxes. After those comments, Tell Mam

a, an organization that records Muslim hate incidents, reported that attacks on Muslim women went up.

  They often take the form of pulling off a woman’s headscarf, espe

cially when she’s taking her children to and from school. Imagine what that does to a young

frightened and confused Muslim child? We have respected high-profile commentators who say that Islam

ophobia doesn’t exist and imply that “they” have brought it on themselves because of terrorism.
