Amazon entered China in 2004, when it bought a local online boo
kseller for $75 million. Since then, it has invested in wareh
ouses, data centers and programs to teach Chinese sellers how to get their goods to Amazon customers.
In October 2016, Amazon launched in China its Amazon Prime, the first unlimited free cross-border shipping memb
ership program that operates globally, in an attempt to lure the rising number of quality-conscious Chinese buye
rs to buy foreign products.isual China Group, which owns Chinese photo platform vcg.com, was fined 300,000 yua

mit in Singapore, the US President appeared to tout reports that North Korea had begun dismantling the Sohae Satellite Launching Station, another name for Tongchang-ri.
Dave Schmerler, a senior research associate at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies specializing in satell
ite imagery analysis, said that the more notable development is the work being done to the engine test stand, whe
re Pyongyang could theoretically improve the engines on its nuclear-capable missiles.
North Korea has already successfully tested two types of ICBMs on
mobile launchers, so it doesn’t necessarily need the launch pad to test-fire long-range missiles.
It’s also possible that the activity at the facility is a chess move in North Korea’s
negotiating strategy, Schmerler said, to ratchet up pressure on Washington.
Trump and Pompeo have touted as progress the fact that North Korea has not conducted any missile or nuclear tests in more than a year.
”The site itself, in the macro-sense, is very transparent. And the North Koreans know we are always watching,” he said.
”When they do something at Sohae, they know that this could very easily be in the public conversation for domestic American politics.”
It’s unclear if the recent developments will affect how the White House moves forward with North Korea.
an for the measure to have the votes it needs to pass the Senate. CNN’s Chris Cillizza put together a list of s
enators to keep an eye on, including Cory Gardner of Colorado, Joni Ernst of Iowa and Martha McSally of Arizona.
There’s a big difference between forcing a veto and overturning it. Vetoes can be overridde
n only by a two-thirds supermajority vote in both chambers on Capitol Hill. In the House, Democrats have
235 seats, Republicans have 197 and there are three vacancies. Since the measure overturning the national emer
gency won 245 votes there, that means Democrats would have to pick up an additional 43 to 45 House Republican vote
s to get to 288-290 and a two-thirds majority, depending on how many lawmakers vote. Assuming the bill passes in
the Senate with four Republicans, they’d need to pick up an additional 16 Republican votes.
How uncommon is Trump’s veto-free streak?
We’re taking for granted that presidents would not want to use the veto, but some clearly relish their fights aga
inst Congress. Harry Truman, who issued 250 vetoes, ran a successful re-election campaign in 1948 against the “do n
othing” Congress. The most veto-happy President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, read a veto message aloud to Congress.
The Ministry of Education has asked universities with advanced degree programs to stren
gthen their supervision of student enrollment and management after a few high-profile academic m
isconduct cases tarnished the reputation of the country’s postgraduate education.
The ministry has zero tolerance for academic misconduct, suc
h as plagiarism, and universities should scrutinize every step of graduate writing, fro
m choosing research topics to dissertation defense, it said in a statement on Wednesday.
Any misconduct will be dealt with seriously, and academic pape
rs, theses and dissertations will be shared with other institutions to add more scrutiny, it said.
The academic misconduct case of actor Zhai Tianlin has shed light on the lack of supervision of academic writing among postg
raduate students. Zhai, who was found guilty of academic misconduct, has been stripped of his doctoral degree at Be
ijing Film Academy. Peking University has removed Zhai from its postdoctoral research program. Chen Yi, Zhai’s
upervisor at the academy, has been barred from supervising any doctoral candidates.
have once again made concrete progress and provided positive pro
spects for bilateral relations and the global economy. Wang, also minister of foreign affa
irs, made the remark at an event on Monday, according to a statement issued by the ministry.
Yao Yang, dean of the National School of Development at Peking University, said, “It is encouraging that both sides have begu
n to work on the text of an agreement, which indicates a speeding up toward sealing a trade deal.”
“The progress also showed that effective economic diplomatic meas
ures can help resolve cumbersome issues and reduce confrontation between two nations,” Yao said.
After tit-for-tat exchanges of hefty import tariffs, President Xi Jinping and hi
s US counterpart, Donald Trump, agreed in December to halt new tariffs for 90 days to a
llow for talks. Since then, negotiations have been conducted on a wide array of topics.
Early Sunday afternoon in Washington, Trump tweeted that he “will be delaying” the incr
ease of tariffs on Chinese imports scheduled for March 1, due to “very productive” trade talks between the two countries.
