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.

China’s Palace Museum signed an agreement on Friday with Huawei Technologies Co Ltd to promote the use of its 5G telecommunications technology. With
the new generation telecoms technology, the Forbidden City, which is the tourist site that welcomes the largest nu
mber of visitors in the world each year, will definitely provide state-of-the-art services.
Supported by the much faster mobile network, the museum will likely be digitalized to such
an extent that visitors thousands of miles away may be able to explore it in virtual reality. And those visi
ting it in person will be able to learn about the treasures it houses in greater detail with the aid of digital technology.
In the past 20 years since the museum started to facilitate its work with digital technology, a lot
of information about the cultural relics it preserves has been provided on its app, and multiple dig
italized ways have been employed for visitors to have a more rewarding experience.
take that to an even higher level, as the new generation of telecoms technology will enrich the ex
perience of visitors to the museum, virtually and in reality, even further. And if conditions become mature in th
e near future, it will not just be visits to the Palace Museum that 5G transforms.
With 5G networks and a smartphone, one will be able to have a consultation with a doctor w
ithout leaving home or give instructions to robotic cleaners to do household chores.
In fact, what the new 5G networks represent is none other than the next technological revolution. There is no reason t
o politicize the arrival of this next-generation technology. Neither is there any reason to demonize what Hu
awei, as one of the world biggest telecoms equipment providers, is doing to usher in this technological revolution.
What is even more dangerous than the harm done to fair competition in the world market is the negative impact the polit
ical barriers some Western countries have put in the way of Huawei will have on the evolution of technology.

More than 60 percent of children and teenagers in China do not get enough sleep, according to a report released by the Chinese Sleep Research Society on Sunday.
The survey showed 63 percent of children and teenagers in China sleep for less than eight ho
urs a day, the minimum sleeping time to ensure health for such a group, the report said.

The 24-year-old clinched her 16th win of a record-breaking season
Saturday to take her tally to 59 World Cup titles overall.
The victory was also her 40th slalom win to equal the record of Swedish great
Ingemar Stenmark, who heads the all-time list with 86 World Cup wins.
Overall champion Shiffrin, who topped the slalom standings from Slovakia’s P
etra Vlhova and Swiss Wendy Holdener,
is hot favorite to clinch the giant slalom crystal globe Sunday.
The American has a 97-point lead over Vlhova, with 100 points available to the winner in Andorra.
Shiffrin, who passed Vreni Schneider’s mark of 14 wins in a season
earlier this month, could become the first skier — mal

faster super-G discipline in the same season.
She secured a third straight World Cup overall crown earlier this season and first super-G c

A historian 100 years hence could pull the tape of the 16-minute tour de force and learn everything they needed to know about the Trump presidency.
Trump’s behavior on Thursday offered pointers to how he will attempt to ride out political crosswinds using the uni
que political tools that made his late-in-life transition from business to Washington so successful.
Thursday’s rebuke from Congress came amid a spell that wo
uld have been disastrous for any conventional politician, as legal and congressional probe
s suggest tough challenges ahead as special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report looms. Unusually, it also included a
slap from some Republicans who have been loath to challenge their leader in the first two years of his presidency.
Trump’s refusal to show weakness or humility in defeat allied with a brazen, relentless
temperament and an indifference to shame helps explain why he is so hard to bring down.
