In the end, they divided up Reliance’s array of business

  es that cover industries such as energy, retail and financial services. But their fortunes have gone in vastly different directions since then.

  Mukesh Ambani’s fortune tops $54 billion, while his younger brother has dropped out

of the billionaires club and is now worth only $300 million, according to Bloomberg.

  In his statement on Monday, Anil Ambani said the siblings have now put their differences behind them.

  ”I and my family are grateful we have moved beyond the past, and are deeply grateful and touched with this gesture,” he said.

  The US Securities and Exchange Commission has rejected Elon Musk’s claims that the regulator is unfairly trying to silence him.

  In a filing Monday, the SEC said it was “stunning” that the bi

llionaire business leader had continued to fire off tweets about Tesla without consulting others

at the company despite having agreed to a court-ordered settlement requiring him to do so.

  The filing is the latest salvo in a protracted battle between

the SEC and Musk, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the securities regulator.

Four carriers-Swisscom, Australia’s Telstra and Opt

 and Sing-Tel of Singapore-will sell the as yet unnamed 5G Oppo phone first, which is scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of this year.

Shen Yiren, vice-president of Oppo, said the four overseas carriers are rolling out the 5G netwo

rks rapidly, so the company chose to first sell its 5G smartphones in Europe. Its partnership with Swisscom is the fastest.

The move marks the latest step by Oppo to build itself as an innova

tive brand in Europe, trying to lure consumers with cutting-edge products and design.

This is also proof of the company’s determination to conquer more develop

ed markets after its products became available in more than 40 countries and regions.

Song Yu, 34, a freelance writer in Beijing, said he traveled a

“I was about to be 30 and wanted to celebrate this special birthday in Europe, but I couldn’t find any companion to go with

me,” he said. “So, I visited Europe on my own and found doing so could be pleasant, as it enabled me to change my rou

te and meet interesting travelers. I even met a backpacker who guided me to the Alps.”

Xu Xiaolei, a spokesman for China Youth Travel Service, said the number of people traveling alone has grown steadily in rec

ent years. Last year, 10 percent of the company’s revenue came from single travelers, mostly ages 18 to 30.

“For the younger generation, experiencing unique cultu

res and relaxing their minds and bodies are the main reasons for traveling, rather than con

necting with others or sightseeing. So they won‘t stop travelling because they lack a companion,” Xu said.

In tour groups, guides will usually pay more attention to solo travelers, making them feel less lonely or embarrassed, he said.

The administration will also promote the ecological restor

ation of grasslands and push forward the establishment of pilot national parks.

China is rich in grassland resources – with nearly 400 million hect

ares of natural grassland accounting for 41.7 perc

ent of the country’s land. Protection and restoration of grassland resources will be strengthened, Zhang said.

Measures to be taken include finding out the entire picture of grassland resources, assessing

current pol2olkcimcn-2ting a guideline on how to strengthen grassland protection and restoration, he said.

As for national parks, Zhang said that after the central authorities released an overall plan for introducing a national park

mechanism, the administration drafted a layout of national parks and standards for their protection.

Chinese group looks at the arrival flight schedule at Nairobi airp

  But Geoffrey Thomas, the editor in chief of Airline Ratings, told CNN the Ethiopian Airlines c

rash on Sunday had “significant differences” to the Lion Air crash last year. On the Lion Air flight, ther

e were “wild fluctuations in air speed and… we continued to get data from the plane all the way down to impact.”

  Sunday’s crash, however, had “no fluctuations and all of the sudden transmission” c

eased, he said. “That transmission ceasing indicates catastrophic failure in air.””I think [Eth

iopian Airlines] are going to be looking at whether there was an engine failure,” CNN’s Quest said. “The plane is cli

mbing out at a normal fashion, but there are mountains in the area, and longstanding pilots are well aware that if you

have an issue departing Addis on that particular route, you’ve got a mountain in front of you.”

  The aerospace giant said in a press statement that it was “deeply saddened to learn of the pa

ssing of the passengers and crew.” It added that a “Boeing technical team is prepared to provide technical assi

stance at the request and under the direction of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.”

I made some minor mistakes in the forward and backward

dives, but did a good job in the next four routines. It is a special pressure competing the sync

hro because I don’t want to drag my partners down. I tried to catch up with the pace of each partner, whil

e I just need to concentrate on my own in the individual,” Cao said after the 10m platform final in the morning.

Cao stood atop the podium of the 3m springboard synchro later in the evening with Xie Siyi, wi

nning 469.08, well ahead of the runners-up Jahir Ocampo Marroquin/Rommel Pacheco Marrufo of Me

xico (413.61) and Philippe Gagne/Francois Imbeau-Dulac of Canada (399.48).

Daniel Goodfellow/Jack Laugher of Britain placed second after five dives but made a big mistake in their last dive 109C for zero point.

“I had a quick rest at noon and managed to make myself excited for the evening final. I was happy that we performed our best,” Cao said.

But the activity is surprising. After Trump and Kim’s first sum

  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.

So far, three closed test sites nationwidein Beijing, Chongqi

ng and Xi’an, Shaanxi province — have been approved by the ministry, Li said. The one in X

i’an released some draft guidance on testing on Feb 27, Xinhua News Agency reported.

According to the guidance, drivers and vehicles that have passed inspect

ions are allowed to test autonomous vehicles in designated open areas of the city.

Only enterprises or research institutes that have mastered the technology can perform te

sts, and they must have the financial ability to pay for accidental losses and to monitor and control the vehicles.

Accidents during the tests will be handled in accordance with the city’s laws and regulations on traffic safety, the guidance said.

Li said autonomous driving will take some time to be well applied. The ministry w

ill work with other ministries and commissions to set up national guidance and standards.

“Legislation in the field should follow,” he said.

The post by the Sina Weibo blogger claimed that one of Zha

i’s papers published in an academic journal, was uploaded to CNKI and the similarity score for the 2,783-word article was 40.4 percent.

Another post by the same blogger claimed that Zhai’s doctoral graduation dissertation

could not be found in the CNKI database, while all the graduation dissertations written by his classmates could be found there.

The posts stirred a heated debate among netizens, with many saying academic misconduct

was unfair to students who had worked hard to obtain a degree. They have called for strict rules to curb such behavior.

“For someone with a PhD, how could he not know what the CNKI is? And how could he have never used it for referencing academic works?” one netizen wrote.

“I was only joking when I said that I did not know what CNKI was,” Zhai wrote in response

to the post. “Will anyone believe me if I said that I do not know one plus one equals two?”

Zhai’s studio said on Friday that he obtained a PhD from the Beijing Film Academ

y in June, and all his academic papers and his dissertation were written by him under the guidance of supervisors.

He has met all graduation requirements from the academy and is willing to be held responsible for any academic misconduct, the studio said.

Peking University declined to comment when contacted by China Daily on Monday.
