raduate department, said China has trained hundreds of foreign space engineers since the mid-1990s.
However, those training sessions were mostly occasional, often accompanied a satellite export deal, and were mainly focu
sed on ground-based control and applications of satellites rather than their design and production, the director said.
“However, in recent years, along with the expansion in our cooperation in the space indu
stry with other countries, many of our foreign partners voiced their hopes that we could hold some sort of syst
ematic training programs to help them create their own spacecraft designers and technicians,” he said.
Therefore, he said, “We decided to open a two-year postgraduate prog
ram and then sent the message to countries having space cooperation with China.”
exposed disordered copyright management by stock-image providers, legal
professionals said the increased efforts to protect copyright should be applauded.
For example, the National Copyright Administration has launched crackdowns against pira
ted works every year, aiming to increase copyright protection through administrative measures.
Last year, it took online short videos, audio material, literary articles and music as major target
s. It eliminated 1.85 million web links with content that infringed copyright, and confiscated 1.23 million pirated works.
Wang, the Beijing lawyer, said he appreciated governme
nt attempts to protect copyright, but said such efforts are still insufficient.
He called for the country to improve copyright-related laws as soon as poss
ible, and especially to issue a specific rule for footage, pictures or other photographic works.
In the more than three months since it reopened to the public after repairs, more th
an 70,000 vehicles a day on average have crossed the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in Jiangsu province.
The number of vehicles traversing the bridge, which reopened in December, is just half that for each of the other three structures spanning t
he river in Nanjing, while Line 3 of the city’s subway system carries more than 800,000 people across the river every day.
But despite its relatively meeker traffic flows, people from across the country visit Nan
jing just to see the bridge, especially during holidays. For many, it represents far more than just a river crossing.
For years, it has been featured on a variety of posters and in school textbooks.
Many people have had their pictures taken at photo studios that use images of the bridge as backdrops.
Hotels, cinemas and daily necessities have been named after it. Parents have even named their chi
ldren after the bridge, with some of those born in the 1960s and 1970s being called “Yangtze”, “Bridge” or “Pier” in Chinese.

Expected to be one of the most important autonomous vehicle mark
ets by accounting group KPMG early this year, China has conducted road tests in a raft of its m
unicipalities and provinces, including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Guangdong.
As China’s center of scientific and technological innovation, Beijing has been a pioneer in developing self-driving technology.
The country’s first self-driving road test report notes that the capital is scheduled to scale up tests. It cites a plan that aims to have te
st areas of 500 square kilometers and 2,000 km of open roads for testing intelligent-connected vehicles by 2022.
Data show that since February 2018, Beijing has opened 44 roads, totaling 123 km for road tests.
As of the end of 2018, the capital had 54 registered autonom
ous-driving vehicles, accounting for more than 50 percent of the total nationwide.

“For example, unmarried men used to dramatically be less healthy th

DePaulo said that in the US, there’s also a lot of research showin
g that single people are more social than married people.
“They participate more in the events in their cities and
towns, and do more to stay in touch with, and ex
change help with, their parents, siblings, friends, colleagues and neighbors,” she added.
The internet also allows single people to stay connected wi
th others even when they are home alone, DePaulo said.
