The SEC sought to remove Musk as CEO of Tesla last year

  after he tweeted in August that he had secured funding to take the company private. It was eventually revealed that while

he’d spoken with investors, he hadn’t secured anything. The SEC said the tweet was “false and misleading.”

  The settlement allowed Musk to stay on as CEO, but he had to give up his role as chair

man of Tesla. He and Tesla were fined a total of $40 million, which Musk paid himself.

  The US District Court for Southern New York, which approved

the original settlement in October, will decide whether Musk’s February 19 tweet viol

ated the deal.While you were living your life on December 18th, 2018, a giant space rock exploded 16 miles above the Ea

rth’s surface, giving off 10 times the energy of the atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima. No big deal.

  The event is properly called a “fireball,” NASA’s term for “exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to to be seen over a very wide area.”

  With an impact energy of 173 kilotons, December’s fireball was the second-most powerful to enter Earth’s atmosp

here in 30 years. You may recall the first — it was that huge, blinding fireball that rocked parts of Russia in 2013.

tudents sleep at noon in the classroom, in East China’s Anhui prov

More than 60 percent of children and teens do not get adequate sleep, which can put their health at risk, according to a repor

t released on Sunday by the Chinese Sleep Research Society, ahead of the World Sleep Day that falls on March 21.

Nearly 63 percent of Chinese youths ages 6 to 17 sleep less than eight hours a day, acco

rding to the report. Among 13- to 17-year-olds the figure is more than 81 percent.

The report was based on a survey at the end of last year and in January. It covered nea

rly 70,000 children and teens ages 6 to 17 across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

The report found that the heavy school homework load and the popu

larization of electronic devices were the two top causes for the inadequate sleep. From Mon

day to Thursday, 8.4 percent of the group would still be busy with their homework after 11 pm.

The cooperation between the museum and Huawei will now

take that to an even higher level, as the new generation of telecoms technology will enrich the ex

perience of visitors to the museum, virtually and in reality, even further. And if conditions become mature in th

e near future, it will not just be visits to the Palace Museum that 5G transforms.

With 5G networks and a smartphone, one will be able to have a consultation with a doctor w

ithout leaving home or give instructions to robotic cleaners to do household chores.

In fact, what the new 5G networks represent is none other than the next technological revolution. There is no reason t

o politicize the arrival of this next-generation technology. Neither is there any reason to demonize what Hu

awei, as one of the world biggest telecoms equipment providers, is doing to usher in this technological revolution.

What is even more dangerous than the harm done to fair competition in the world market is the negative impact the polit

ical barriers some Western countries have put in the way of Huawei will have on the evolution of technology.

Huawei, which is a private company that has no affiliation

to the government, can provide the most advanced technologies and equipment for 5G mobile net

works. Those trying to block it on national security grounds are simply not keeping up with the times.

No country has provided any solid evidence to support the accusations that the Chinese telecoms giant presents a threat.

What they’ve done to Huawei will, as technology progresses, be show

n to be nothing more than a political farce.China Saturday announced specific rules con

cerning tax exemption to reduce the amount of individual income tax (IIT) paid on incomes earned overseas.

According to the rules jointly unveiled by the Ministry of Finance and

State Taxation Administration (STA), individuals who have lived on the Chines

e mainland for six consecutive years and have stayed there for 183 days or more each year will need to pay IIT on th

eir overseas-sourced incomes. Otherwise, their incomes earned overseas will be IIT exempt.

The clock for the six-year period will be reset if the individual leaves the mainland for more than 30 consecutive days in a year, according to the rules.

Premji accounted for 80% of “large donations” defined as m

  100 million rupees ($1.4 million) — from India’s richest individuals in the 2018 financial year, according to this year’s India P

hilanthropy Report by consulting firm Bain & Company and philanthropy fund Dasra. Private indi

viduals in India donate about 430 billion rupees ($6.2 billion) each year, the report said.

  Wipro was founded by Premji’s father in 1945 as a vegetab

le oil manufacturer, and transitioned to the technology industry in the 1980s under Premji

‘s leadership. It has since grown into one of India’s biggest IT services companies, with more than 160,000 em

ployees worldwide and over 1,200 clients in industries ranging from aerospace to retail.

  Premji’s foundation focuses on supporting education, and ru

ns the Azim Premji University in Bangalore. Its billionaire benefactor’s latest donation coul

d help it open a second university and “scale up significantly,” the organization said.

If they don’t talk to us, we’re going to do something that’s

  going to be very severe economically,” Trump said. “We’re going to tariff a lot of their products coming in.”

  Most leaders go out of their way to avoid antagonizing their counterparts and wading into their delicate domestic politics.

  Not Trump.

  The exchange also revealed another one of Trump’s political tools: his fervent effort to in

ject an appeal to his base — in this case on a signature issue, trade — into almost every political situation.

  Trump vs. Congress

  Trump also launched a mini-campaign rally, seizing on the Senate vote undoing his emergency declaration, to spell

out his hardline policies on immigration and the wall — always with an eye on his most loyal voters.

  In an interview published by Breitbart News this week, Trump revealed another aspect of his character — a sens

e that he is being persecuted unfairly — that helps him identify with voters who feel neglected by political elites.

Complaining about Democratic investigations, the President

  made a jarring comment that hinted at the possibility of political violence.

  ”I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the milita

ry, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it to

ugh — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” Trump told the conservative website.

  Trump’s incessant appeals for his base are undeniably effective.

  One Republican, Sen. Thom Tillis, of North Carolina, made an 11th hour switch of hi

s vote on the declaration of national emergency, falling into line behind the President.

  A top GOP official in North Carolina told CNN’s Jim Acosta that Tillis was under fierce pressure ahead of a potential primary challenge next year.

  The official said, Tillis is “getting hit hard in the state.”

We don’t know” what Kim will decide to do in the future and

  that any decision to resume such testing may “very much be his decision, and his decision alone,” Biegun said. He also noted that Trump has “made clear” how disap

pointed he would be if testing resumed. A senior US defense official told CNN Monday that the commercial sate

llite imagery doesn’t show anything that raises imminent alarm for the US at this time.

  North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp

ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi

tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

  The US had hoped the summit would demonstrate the success of Trump’s diplomatic gamble with North Korea, but instead

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.

  ”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin

g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

  CNN’s Jamie Crawford and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.

More than 61,000 people were indicted in connectio

n with related crimes last year, and a group of mafia-like gangs that had been bullying people were punished.

Faced with an increase in crimes that harm minors in recent years, the top procurato

rate and all provincial-level procuratorates have established special prosecutorial departments to handle cas

es involving minors — the first such practice among all judicial agencies in the country, Zhang said.

A total of 1,761 chief procurators across the country have held concurrent posts as vice-principal

s of primary or middle schools in charge of education about the law and to ensure a safe campus, he said.

To better handle petitions from the public, the top procuratorate has instructed prosecuting

authorities to put themselves in the place of the petitioners and provide feedback on each petition within seven days.

An additional report should be produced within three

months on how the petition has been processed, according to the SPP.

Prosecuting authorities have been treating the protection of human rights as being as important as fighting crime, Zhang said.

“Our work is based on facts and laws as well as the principle of ‘no one is let off, no one is wronged’,” he said.

Last year, prosecutors turned down police requests to formally arrest

168,458 people and dropped charges against 34,398 others — up by 15.9 percent and 14.1

percent year-on-year — because of insufficient evidence or because their actions did not constitute a crime.

“Even one wrongful case is too much,” Zhang said, adding that prosecutors will make consist

ent efforts to prevent wrongful cases and make timely rectification once such a case is detected.

“We should be responsible to the law, history and the people,” he said.
