expects the run-up of cashless payments will maintain for three to five years until it takes up as much sha

In the same period non-banking payment institutions, mainly referring to third-party online payment service providers, had 530.61 b

illion deals, surging 85.05 percent, and the transaction volume was 208.07 trillion yuan, up 45.23 percent fro

  The question many New Zealanders are asking themselves in the wake of Friday’s deadly terrorist attacks on two mosques is: Why?

  Why was this island nation with fewer than 5 million people in the southwestern c

orner of the Pacific chosen for such a savage crime? Why should there be attacks on men, women an

d children who have gathered to pray? Why couldn’t the white supremacist be prevented from going on the killing spree?

  In native Maori language New Zealand is “Aotearoa”, or roughly the “land of the long w

hite cloud” which appeared to offer a quiet sanctuary from many of the evils that beset our world today.

  All that changed last Friday. By a crime of pure hate.

  The brutality of the attacks in Christchurch has stunned New Zealanders. It

was the sort of thing that happened in “other places”. They thought their land is a “proud nation” of more than 200 ethnic gr

oups and 160 languages-a land of diversity in which “we share common values”, as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said.

tographed playing with the baby alongside partner Clarke Gayford. Neve looked on as her mother addressed the assem

  Speaking to CNN after her address, Ardern said she wanted to “normalize” the ide

a of being a working mother, and described New Zealand as “incredibly progressive.”

  Since coming to power, Ardern has presented an image in stark contrast to leaders of many large Western nations. As co

untries, including the United States, have attempted to keep migrants out, Ardern has actively sought to bring them in.

  She’s made multiple offers to take in refugees languishing on Manus Island and Nauru,

the products of a Australia’s strict immigration policy. The offer has been repeatedly refused.、

Her calls for unity and vigilance came amid a rare state

  Al-Muhajir called upon ISIS supporters to “take vengeance” in the aftermath of the attack in an almost 45-min

  New Zealand Members of Parliament gathered in the House on Tuesday to share condolenc

Palace Museum to get 5G technologyhen visitors to the

When visitors to the gigantic Palace Museum complex in Beijing feel a need to sit down for a cup

of tea or find a bathroom without a long line, they soon will be able to turn to their smartphones for the information they need.

This modern-day solution at the venerable compound comes thanks to an agreement

signed on Friday by the museum and Huawei Co, the telecommunication giant, to build a “sm

art network” using 5G technology, the fifth generation of mobile network communications.

Under the agreement, 5G Wi-Fi signals will cover the 720,000-square

-meter compound, China’s imperial palace from 1420 to 1911 and also known as the For

bidden City, and the branch museum of the institution under construction in northwestern Beijing.

But visitor comfort is not the only benefit of a 5G smart network.

Huawei will also provide the museum with cutting-edge technologie

s for the internet of things-devices or objects linked in a network-cloud computing and a

rtificial intelligence to facilitate such functions as management, security and preservation of cultural relics.

It’s essential to always stay close to the latest technology t

better serve the public,” said Shan Jixiang, director of the Palace Museum.

Shan said there is still much room for improvement in the handling of a huge number of cultu

ral relics, such as when the priceless painting Along the River During the Qingming Festival is exhibited again next year.

The Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127) landscape painting is considered the best-known a

ncient Chinese work of art. When it was last exhibited in 2015, visitors stood in long lines until 3 am to get a

glimpse. The museum ended up preparing instant noodles to serve the hungry visitors.

“I don’t want that scenario to recur,” Shan said. “Our operation can be done in a more scientific way.”

The new system will make use of the more than 3,000 closed-circuit television cameras that

are installed all over the Palace Museum. Shan said facial-recognition technology will determine whi

ch areas are most popular with frequent visitors in order to analyze their preferences.
