But Tianma, part of EAVN, together with telescopes in the Republic of Korea and Japan, h

ad been making observations at wavelengths of 7 and 13 millimeters for a long time, Shen said.

“EHT could capture the image without assistance of the network but the supporting observations provided supplement

al information and showed consistency with the EHT observations to better verify their accuracy,” Shen said.

“The job of the network was included in one of the six papers about the res

urged to avoid more damage to China tiesonly

Beijing urged Washington on Saturday “not to go too far” in harming China’s interest

s, and called for it to change course to avoid further damaging bilateral ties.

China firmly opposes the United States’ recent remarks and actions that harmed China’s interests, in

cluding its resorting to political means to suppress normal operations of Chinese companies, State Coun

cilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a phone call with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

History and reality show that China and the US both benefit f

rom cooperating with each other, while both suffer from bilate

ral conflicts, and cooperation is the only proper choice for the two major countries, Wang said.

Many countries along the Belt and Road have high moun

tains, deserts, oceans and a lack of accurate meteorological information. The number o

f meteorological disasters in the regions is more than double the global average, the administration said.

Wei Caiying, deputy general-director of the National Satellite Meteoro

logical Center, said that real-time disaster monitoring by meteorological satellites coul

d provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

“Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a threat to life and property. T

racking their path could help local authorities decide how to proceed with evacuations,” she said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Support Mechanism for int

ernational users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

The move fully demonstrates Beijing’s firm determinati

on to defend its due interests and legitimate rights in international trade and economic cooperation, according to analysts.

The US has totally ignored the fact that China has been eager to resolve trade and economic issues through high-level official ta

lks and pledged to further expand market access for global businesses, said Liang Ming, a senior resea

rcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

China has emphasized that the US should not use the tariff method. That is not just for China’s benefit; it is the rational choice a

ny country would make when facing unreasonable requests in trade, said Dong Yan, director of the inte

rnational trade office at the Institute of World Economics and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

both sides have the sincerity to solve the existing problems.

ied deal, and under this premise, a good, cooperative deal,” he said. “I hope our US colleagues would understand this.”

Liu said he believed both sides have a strong desire to reach a deal. “We need to work hard tog

ether to surpass the temporary difficult period of time, and then we’ll have a bright future,” he said.

rospects have been already compromised by the escalation of trade tensions between the two countries, Liu said co

operation serves the interests of the two sides and the whole world, while conflict hurts both.

“We have tremendous common interests and many commo

n foes, only through cooperation could we solve these problems,” Liu said.

US soy farmers call for cool-down of trade tensions

US soy farmers have urged Washington to work for a positive solution to the current tarif

f dispute with the world’s top oilseed buyer China, and avoid further escalation of trade tensions.

In a statement released late Tuesday, the American Soybean Association (ASA) described the t

hreat by US President Donald Trump’s administration to increase the tariff rate from 10 percent to 25 p

ercent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods as the “worst case” for US soybean growers.

“This is a predicament for soy growers,” said Davie Stephens, ASA president and a soybean farmer from Kentucky.

“With depressed (soybean) prices and unsold stocks fo

recast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, we nee

d the China market reopened to US soybean exports within weeks, not months or longer,” he added.

iding several versions of edited application essays to setting students up with internships and volunteer opportunities.

Nicole Shen said she paid a counselor $12,000 to edit seven or eight of her daughter’s c

“It’s very normal (to hire private counselors and tutors) among Chinese parents (living in th

e San Francisco Bay Area),” Shen said. She is in several WeChat groups, each having hundreds of parents.

Shen said it is easy to find a counselor. “You just pst in the groups, and somebody will quick

ly respond with recommendations. I know many parents easily spend over $150,000 on the counseling or tutoring.”

The San Francisco Bay Area has a high concentration of private college admiss

ions consultants. Tutoring schools and consultancies with Chinese signs can be seen in shopping malls.

A popular consultant is IvyMax, which bills itself as the “largest, most influential US
