With the rapid develo上海千花网女神会所tificial intelligen

nce and other tec上海千花网女神会所hnologies, some traditional professions will be replaced by new ones and universities n

eed to update their specializations so as to meet the changing demands of the workplace.

If anything, the national college entrance examination can be compared to a way station in a person’s life journey. It is hard to do a great job in gaokao, but it is even

harder to equip oneself well enough, whether at college or not, for what will unfold in the next section of the journey.

The growing number of gaokao examinees has resulted in an intensified scr

amble to squeeze through the doors into university, with accompanying pressure of being a winner or lo

ser in that competition. Yet the changing nature of work means that for some, vocational education may be the bes

t way station that better serves their interests and offers the path to a rewarding career.

Growing economic dynamism will also serve as an impo

portant stabilizing factor, he said. China’s research and development spending ranks se

cond in the world, accounting for around 2.18 percent of its GDP, while emerging strategic industries, the

sharing economy and other new growth engines are also seeing continuous expansion.

The strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the solid material and technological foundation built through decad

es of rapid development in the era of reform and opening-up will also help shore up economic growth, he said.

He added that China also has enormous resilience, potential and flexibility in developm

ent, deep experience in macroeconomic regulation and ample space for policy adjustments.

Students to be vital cogs in travel sectordents born betwe

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.

For first time, scientists watch entire animal’s muscle sy

Researchers at Columbia University and the University of Chicago-affiliated Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have

mapped the full-body muscular activity of an animal while it was moving and behaving, for the first time in the world.

In the study, the researchers watched the patterns of muscle activity in a small aquatic animal called a hydraas. Based on prior su

ccess in mapping full-body neural activity in hydra, they pinpointed seven distinct patterns of hydra’s muscle act

ivity this time, according to a news release posted on the website of the University of Chicago on Thursday.

Hydra are freshwater organisms, only a few millimeters in length, and be

long to the phylum Cnidaria, which also includes jellyfish and coral. Their tubular bodies are c

omprised of two layers of muscle, each composed of a different cell type and separated by two nerve nets

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agric

ricultural products such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned

tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

“I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chinese-im

posed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in our

aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposi

ng 25 percent tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with

tariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June
