Yunnan school serves students from two nationsdents play ga

Every morning, dozens of students from Myanmar walk hand in hand across the border into China’s Yunnan province.

There, they are led by patrol officers to Yinjing Frontier Primary School. After school, as they are es

corted to the border inspection station, they wave, tell the officers goodbye and return to their homes in Myanmar.

The students attend the first frontier primary school in China. Locat

ed in Yinjing village in the small border city of Ruili in Yunnan province, the school has 36 M

yanmar students and 99 Chinese students. Founded in 1960, it has been admitting students from Myanmar since 1990.

Wen Liang, 10, from Myanmar, has repeated this routine for three years. “I like goi

ng to school in China. It makes me very happy because I have many friends there,” Wen said.

The youngest Myanmar student is 5, said Sun Jialiang, the school principal.

On March 13, CNBC reported that Malta, an island nation i

the Mediterranean that is also a EU member state, has indicated it, too, could join the BRI. The news channel quoted Maltes

e Finance Minister Edward Scicluna as saying that “certain prejudices” should not come in the way of good business.

I am not sure if Marquis, or his boss, US National Security Advisor John Bolton, plan to lecture, warn or th

reaten Malta as they have been doing to Italy these past days. But instead of indulging in such rea

ctionary activities, the US should abandon its Cold War mentality and stop looking for non-existent enemies.

More important, the US should also stop forcing other countries to ch

oose between China and the US, especially as many countries made it clear they do not wan

t to be lectured on what they should do when the Obama administration launched the “pivot to Asia strategy”.

The world needs more infrastructure-building projects such as the BRI, not mo

ves to sabotage such projects, as the US has been trying to do for quite some time now.

As dawn broke, those sobs began to make sense as a “ter

  rible sight” emerged, Taylor said.

  ”Dead bodies had floated up (and the) current of the flood water had washed the bodies up against the road,” said Tay

lor. “The road had subsided about 10 inches (25.5 centimeters). So these bodies had been washed up against the main highway.”

  Taylor said the smell of bodies and livestock was palpable.Hundreds of others were also attempting to make the congested seven-ho

ur walk from the village of Lamego — about 90 kilometers (56 miles) inland from Beira — to Nhamatanda, on higher ground. In places whe

re the current of the flood waters was strong, about 50 people joined hands to make a human chain, said Taylor.

  ”I’m 6 foot 2 inches (187 centimeters), but the force of water at knee level w

as powerful,” Taylor said. “You had to pay attention and concentrate where you put your feet.”

  Taylor said he saw an elderly woman carry her husband on her back.

  On the road out of Beira, he said “the entire area, as far as I could see, was one lake of flood

water,” adding that groups of up to 10 people had climbed eucalyptus, cashew and mango trees waiting to be rescued.

Many banks have set up new offices in Germany, France,

  ther EU countries to safeguard their regional business after Brexit. Financial services companies also have to move substantial asset

s there to satisfy EU regulators. Assets worth at least £1 trillion ($1.3 trillion) are leaving the country, according to consultancy EY.

  Sony (SNE) and Panasonic (PCRFF) are both moving their European headquarters to the Netherlands.

  Manufacturing comapanies, which need their supply chains to function seamlessly, have also made changes. Nissa

n (NSANF) has scrapped plans to build a new model in the United Kingdom, citing uncertainty over Brexit. Ger

man engineering group Schaeffler (SCFLF) is shutting two of its three factories in Britain for the same reason.

  The biggest risk

  The most dangerous scenario — a disorderly Brexit — could still come to pass.

  EU leaders on Thursday granted the United Kingdom a short delay to Brexit, but the

country could still crash out of the bloc unless UK lawmakers agree a path forward.

Mobile payments continue meteoric risepayment deals has jump

Use of China’s mobile payment services has skyrocketed over the past five years, with total transactions covered reaching 277.39 trillion yua

n ($41.51 trillion) in 2018 — a more than 27-fold increase from five years ago, according to the central bank.

A total of 60.53 billion mobile payment transactions were conducted last year, as a repor

t released by the People’s Bank of China Monday shows, while the figure was only 1.67 billion back in 2013.

From around 2013, with online payments dominant and mobile payments only nas

cent, to 2018, which saw mobile payments outpacing the domestic market, it is easy to observe a mo

bilization trend in payment structures, Xue Hongyan with the Suning Institute of Finance told Securities Daily.

The number of China’s online payment deals has jumped from 23.67 billion in 2013 to 2018’s 57.01 billion, and trans

action value more than doubled to 2,126.3 trillion yuan in 2018 from 1,060.78 trillion yuan five years earlier.

After rejecting May’s Brexit deal last week, MPs voted in favor

  tension to the withdrawal process, given the unlikelihood of agreeing a deal before Mar

ch 29. May is expected to ask the remaining 27 EU member states for a delay at this week’s summit.

  It’s possible the EU may propose a long extension to the Brexit process and require the UK to take part in the upcoming European elections in May.

  Downing Street has used the prospect of a lengthy delay — which could be used to force a second

referendum — to try to persuade Brexiteer lawmakers that they risk losing Brexit altogether if they don’t vo

te for May’s deal.The man who opened fire on two New Zealand mosques last week may have succeeded in killing 50 pe

ople, but the country’s leader has promised to deny him the one thing he truly wanted: Notoriety.

  ”You will never hear me mention his name,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told the New Zealand Parliament Tuesday.

  ”He is a terrorist, he is a criminal, he is an extremist, but he will, when I speak, be nameless, and

to others I implore you: Speak the names of those who were lost rather than the name of the man who took t

hem. He may have sought notoriety but we in New Zealand will give him nothing — not even his name.”

On Tuesday Ardern hinted at major changes to come in light

  of the terror attack, especially when it comes to New Zealand’s gun laws.

  New Zealand Prime Minister says, ‘Our gun laws will change’

  The Prime Minister had previously announced that a government inquiry will look into the circumstances leading up to Friday’s attack.

  The inquiry will investigate what agencies knew — or should have known — about th

e gunman’s access to weapons or any impediments into the sharing of information, she said.

  Australian Brenton Harris Tarrant, 28, was charged with

murder on Saturday. He is believed to be the only person responsible for the attacks.

  Tarrant lived in New Zealand’s southern city of Duned

in, around 225 miles from Christchurch. Officials said he had no criminal history in New Zeala

nd or Australia and had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.Tarrant is esco

rted into Christchurch District Court on Saturday. The judge ruled pictures of the suspect in court must have his face blurred.

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.

We can later, accordingly, provide useful information o

our exhibitions,” he said.

The CCTV cameras also are used to safeguard the museum’s precious relics. More than 1.86 milli

on of them are housed at the museum, which logged 17.5 million visits from the public in 2018, topping all museums worldwide.

“How can we make sure no single visitor who might have evil ideas threatens these treasures?” Shan sa

id. “After adopting the internet of things, we can instantly detect any motion involving the artifacts to prevent such threats.”

Such a networked system also will be used to facilitate management of inventory and closely supervise transportation and exhibition of cultural relics.

New technologies can assist the museum staff in other ways, too, said Wang Tao, a member of Huawei’s board of directors.

The company will use algorithms to more efficiently draft tailored plans for restorin

g cultural relics after information on similar pieces and files on each collection are included in a database.

“We can thus combine old craftsmen’s experience and artificial intelligence,” Wang said.

The 5G network also will be used to improve remote consultation through webcams, which will facilitate conver

sations with overseas scholars to jointly find the best answers for restoration and preservation issues, he said.
