This generation has grown up in an era when China

has made tremendous economic achievements, and they have enjoyed affluent material conditions since childho

od. So they set higher standards for life and ask for better quality and unique experiences,” Tang said.

“Compared with the older generation, they are more willing to pay for conveni

New rocket engine to lift heavier satellite loadcommercial

China has developed a world-class solid-propellant rocket engine that is expected to boost the country’s capabilities in launching small satellites, its developer said.

The Academy of Aerospace Solid Propulsion Technology in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, a subsidiary of China Aeros

pace Science and Technology Corp, announced that the first ignition test of the engine was successfully made on Tuesday.

The academy said in a statement that the engine uses several ad

vanced technologies and high-performance composite materials and has world-class capa

bility. It can be used with the country’s new-generation solid-fuel rockets, giving such rockets more power to l

ift small satellites and also promising good competitiveness in the commercial launch market, it said.

Economist offers insights on China’s global growth

When the whole world is searching for a therapy to calm the anxiety arising from economic slowdown, China, the most important global growth engine, provides its

routes to maintain vitality – through supportive macro policies and technology-driven innovation.

That point of view was shared by Zhu Min, an influential Chinese economist and a former deputy managing director of the Intern

ational Monetary Fund. He sat down for an exclusive interview with China Daily, when international media desi

re to learn the reasons for China’s 2019 economic performance at the ongoing annual two sessions in Beijing.

“We did a study that estimated China will continue to have more than 6.3 or 6.4 percent growth this year,” he predicted.

Even if the pace of growth moderates from last year’s 6.6 percent, China is able to m

aintain the strongest economic engine and contribute more than 30 percent of the worl

d’s GDP growth, said Zhu, who is now the chair of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University.

Trump announced last week that he will sit down with

for their second summit. Their first summit in Singapore last June resulted in Kim’s vague commitment to the “complete

denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” a term that his propaganda machine previously used w

hen it argued it would only denuclearize after the U.S. withdraws its troops from South Korea.

Trump’s top envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, visited Pyongyang last week to work out details of the upcoming summit. After

being briefed by Biegun about his Pyongyang trip, South Korea’s presidential office said Sunday that U.S. a

nd North Korean officials plan to meet again the week of Feb. 17 in an unidentified Asian country.

The U.S. military arrived in South Korea to disarm Japan, which colonized the K

orean Peninsula from 1910-45, following its World War II defeat. Most U.S.

troops were withdrawn in 1949 but they returned the next year to fight alongside South Korea in the Korean War.

cientists develop structural brain atlases for Chinese

Scientists have developed structural brain atlases for the Chinese pediatric population, o

ffering a basic tool for future studies on Chinese children’s brain development.

In magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies of child’s brain development, structural brain atlases usually serve as imp

ortant references. However, the popular existing pediatric brain atlases are mostly based on MR images obtained from C

aucasian populations and thus are not an accurate characterization of Chinese children’s brains due to differences in genetic and environmental factors.

Scientists from the Beijing Normal University have created a set of age-specific Ch

inese pediatric atlases based on high-quality MR images from 328 cognitively normal Chinese children aged between 6 and 12.

The brain atlases include sex-specific templates and multiple age-specific templates. They show dramatic anatomica

l differences in the bilateral frontal and parietal regions compared with the brain atlases based on Caucasian populations.

The brain atlases have been released online and researchers can download it for free. They may help reveal the Chinese c

hildren’s brain structure and functional development, providing a reference for neuroimaging studies on Chine

se children with abnormal brain development such as autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
