ent, the average rate for mobile internet services by more than 20 percent, and roaming charges for inter

Basic telecommunication service providers will be urged to ensure that cellphone users n

ationwide can switch service carriers without changing phone numbers by the end of November, and any e

xtra term required for this service will be looked into. These companies will also be urged to straighten out their service pa

ckages to trim the packages available by more than 15 percent within this year, bringing more benefits to consumers.

Landmarks in China turned off their lights for an hour on Saturday as part of a global effort to raise awareness of threats facing planet Earth.

Five cities – Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen in Guangdong province, Wuhan in Hubei province and Chengdu in Sichuan pro

The Olympic Tower in Beijing switched off its lights, as did the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, along with other 20 buildings in the Bund.

The Yellow Crane Tower in Wuhan also went dark, as

local environmental groups and college students joined the annual bid to highlight conservation.

At the Strawberry Music Festival in Wuhan, a lead singer of a rock band unplugged his electric

instrument and performed the traditional Chinese musical instrument guzheng, or Chinese zither, to recognize the campaign.

We don’t know why regulators are taking different approaches

  The MAX 8 was unveiled to great fanfare little over two years ago, but passengers ar

ound the world are now asking if the planes are safe after they were involved in two tragedies in less than six months.

  On Monday, Boeing said it has no “basis to issue new guidance to operators.”

  But several countries have taken the decision out of their hands, grounding the 737 MAX 8 or th

e whole MAX range to carry out additional safety checks and await developments in the investigation.

  On the other hand, most airlines in the US have said they are still confident in the model,

and the Federal Aviation Administration has not yet taken action. Several American airlines have the plane in th

eir fleet, including Southwest, which has more MAX 8s than any carrier other in the world.

  ”We remain confident in the safety and airworthiness of our fleet of more than 750 Boeing aircraft,” Southwest said in a statement sent to CNN on Monday.

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”

So what happened in between? Moros is helping researc

  hers fill that 70 million-year gap, as well as provide a portrait of tyrannosaur lineage in North America. Moros links the earliest, smaller tyrannosaurs to Tyrannosaurus rex.

  ”With a lethal combination of bone-crunching bite forces, stereoscopic vision, rapid growth rates, and colossal size, tyrant dinosa

urs reigned uncontested for 15 million years leading up to the end-Cretaceous extinction — but it wasn’

t always that way,” said Lindsay Zanno, lead study author and paleontologist at North Carolina State Un

iversity, in a statement. “When and how quickly tyrannosaurs went from wallflower to prom king has been vexing pal

eontologists for a long time. The only way to attack this problem was to get out there and find more data on these rare animals.”

  Zanno and her team spent a decade searching for fossils from the Late Cretaceous period. Th

ey recovered teeth and a hind limb consisting of a femur, a tibia and parts of a foot belonging to Mo

ros in the same area where Zanno found the fossil of a giant carnivorous carcharodontosaur.

  But Moros stood between 3 and 4 feet tall. The dinosaur they found was 7 years old when it died, a nearly full-grown adult

that would have weighed around 172 pounds. The elongated leg and foot bones indicated that it would be a great runner.

  Giant dinosaur footprints found and saved from floods in Queensland

  ”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “

These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida

ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”

  g far away from their hometowns and chasing their dreams in big cities such as Beijing and Shang

mbitions and diligence also shaped China’s economic miracle today.

  Those who stick to their posts also help ease the shortage of labor during the holiday.

  During Spring Festival, the prices of the top 10 services,
