 the 19th National Congress of the CPC opened



  The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) opened Wednesday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.


  Xi Jinping delivered a report titled "Secure a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and strive for the great success of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era."

习近平向大会作了题为《决胜全面建成小康社会 夺取新时代中国特色社会主义伟大胜利》的报告。

  The theme of the congress is to "Remain true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind, hold high the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, secure a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, strive for the great success of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era, and work tirelessly to realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation."


  Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. The principal contradiction facing Chinese society has evolved to be that between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people's ever-growing needs for a better life, Xi said.

 gravitational wave


  Scientists at the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory in the United States announced on Monday night they had discovered the first-ever gravitational wave created by the collision of two neutron stars — superdense remnants of massive stars — on Aug 17. A Chinese satellite helped define the energy level of the newly discovered gravitational wave.


  Huiyan, or Insight, China's first Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope put into orbit on June 15, has been cooperating with other observatories and located the source of the wave some 130 million light years away, according to a news release from the Institute of High Energy Physics, a unit of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.


  This is the first time scientist has discovered gravitational waves and a gamma ray burst from the same event — important because scientist might be able to directly see the event thanks to visible light.


  Three US physicists — Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne — were awarded the Nobel Prize in physics this year for the discovery of gravitational waves.

3.Austria’s new chancellor




  On Sunday, Austria’s center-right People’s Party (ÖVP) won the parliamentary elections, putting its 31-year-old leader Sebastian Kurz on a track to become Chancellor of Austria and Europe’s youngest national leader.


  Kurz, dubbed “wunderwuzzi” meaning “wonderkid,” called for a snap election back in May and announced his candidacy for chancellor in June in a bold gamble that he won when voters handed his party about 32 percent of the vote.


  He currently serves as the country’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Integration, a position he was appointed to in 2013 at the age of 27 -- the youngest to hold the post in Europe.


  As Foreign Minister, Kurz hosted a conference on nuclear weapons in 2014 and later hosted the talks that lead to the Iran nuclear deal, signed in Vienna in 2015. The year before, he invited 30 foreign ministers to Vienna to negotiate solutions to the Ukraine crisis.

 Chinese comedian Yan Shunkai dies



  Renowned Chinese comedian and film director Yan Shunkai died on Monday at the age of 80. He graduated from the Central Academy of Drama in 1963, and joined the Shanghai Farce Troupe.


  The household name was famous for his role in "The True Story of Ah Q" in 1980, the first film he ever starred in and which brought him many accolades, including “The Gold Stick Prize” at the Second International Festival of Comedy Films. He was the only Chinese to have ever won this award.


  Yan also performed at China’s first Spring Festival Gala Evening in 1983, making later appearances in 1988 in a self-directed comedy “A Tan Biography” and then in 1993 in a sketch titled “Zhangsan the person."


  He did not pursue cheap laughs. He could make people laugh in tears and also gave people a special aesthetic enjoyment and presented a unique style of arts. He was a great example to the young generation of artists, and his passing is a great loss to the whole theater industry.

   super-hybrid rice



  A new type of hybrid rice grown in China has become the highest-yielding one in the world, setting a new world record for a single crop of rice.


  The new variety, called Xiang Liangyou 900, was cultivated by a team led by Yuan Longping, who is known as "the father of hybrid rice" in China.


  The pilot rice fields in Handan, Hebei province, were harvested on October 15. The three plots yielded 17.2 tons per hectare on average, according to a group of who measured the harvest.


  Hybrid rice, sometimes called super rice, is produced by crossbreeding different varieties. Yuan has set three world records in hybrid rice yield - in 1999, 2005 and 2011, according to Xinhua News Agency.

    giant rice


  A new kind of rice that can grow to a height of 2.2 meters has been introduced, the Chinese Academy of Sciences institute of subtropical agriculture (ISA) announced Monday.


  With the average height of more than 1.8 meters, the yield of rice is expected to surpass 15,000 kg per ha as "giant rice" ripens in the experimental field in Jinjing Township of Changsha County, central China's Hunan Province


  The giant rice — 1 centimeter in diameter — developed a strong capacity to resist disease. The shade created by the giants also provides a welcome habitat for aquatic products, according to Xia Xinjie, chief researcher at ISA.


  "Frogs feed upon the parasites on the rice. The excrements of fish, mud fish and frogs provide perfect fertilizer. The life cycle of the aquatic products coincide with the rice, so they can be managed together and reduce human labor.

    Beijing's first medium-low speed maglev line



  Beijing's first medium-low speed maglev line is expected to start trial operation by the end of this year. The 10.2-km S1 line will connect the suburban districts of Mentougou and Shijingshan.


  Eight stations, have been built, with a maximum designed train speed of 100 km per hour. The line is expected to transport 160,000 people every day, with a capacity of around 1,000 passengers at a time.


  Maglev trains are safer and cheaper compared to current metro and light rail cars. Electromagnets and specially designed tracks prevent the trains from overturning or derailing.


  Using magnetic levitation to move vehicles, a maglev line removes vibration and friction between train wheels and the rail track and operates in severe weather with much less noise and zero emissions.
