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.

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.
But Geoffrey Thomas, the editor in chief of Airline Ratings, told CNN the Ethiopian Airlines c
rash on Sunday had “significant differences” to the Lion Air crash last year. On the Lion Air flight, ther
e were “wild fluctuations in air speed and… we continued to get data from the plane all the way down to impact.”
Sunday’s crash, however, had “no fluctuations and all of the sudden transmission” c
eased, he said. “That transmission ceasing indicates catastrophic failure in air.””I think [Eth
iopian Airlines] are going to be looking at whether there was an engine failure,” CNN’s Quest said. “The plane is cli
mbing out at a normal fashion, but there are mountains in the area, and longstanding pilots are well aware that if you
have an issue departing Addis on that particular route, you’ve got a mountain in front of you.”
The aerospace giant said in a press statement that it was “deeply saddened to learn of the pa
ssing of the passengers and crew.” It added that a “Boeing technical team is prepared to provide technical assi

the gender pay gap. Men generally are more inclined to take jobs with high work intensity and high sala
ries, such as technician or salesman, for example. Women, on the other hand, prefer jobs with average work intensity and
moderate salaries, such as administrative, operational and marketing positions. In the past two ye
ars, more and more women have taken up senior technical, senior management and other senior posts. How
ever, in most well-paid positions, the ratio of men to women is still seriously unbalanced.
In terms of industries, the engineering and manufacturing industries, including mining, smelting and chemistry, have a bigg
er gender pay gap. In the science and tech industries, such as the internet, medical care and electronic co
mmunications, large differences in earnings between women and men also exist, the report said.
