China is planning a moon research base that may reshape the space race - CGTN
The moon means much more than the Earth's largest and only satellite.
Not long after China's Chang'e-5 moon sampler was launched into space, an official working at China's space program mentioned again the plan for a moon research base. "Chang'e-6, 7 and 8 will be gradually carried out," said Xu Hongliang, Secretary General at the China National Space Administration (CNSA), China's equivalent of NASA. "An international lunar research base is also planned," he added. A moon base is very likely to host the first humans living on the surface of a sphere other than planet Earth, which can make history. When will we see that happen? In 10 years, maybe. Zhang Kejian, head of CNSA who made it to the 2019 version of TIME 100 list, told media back in 2019 that the moon base will be completed in "about 10 years." China is already making some progress with the "Yuegong-1," a self-contained laboratory that can help humans survive on the moon. Early experiments in 2017 and 2018 showed that volunteers can survive a year in the lab. A total of 97 percent of the lab is self-contained. That means China only need to send three percent of stuff to the moon every year to keep the lab running all the time. More importantly, it will be an international project led by China involving other space powers in the world like Russia and Europe. "It will be likely located on the southern end of the moon," Wu Weiren, the chief designing engineer of China's lunar project. "It will be used for peace purposes only and benefit all parties involved." Russia has already turned down invitations from the U.S. to build a moon lab together and instead chose China to be the partner. And Europe is also paying close attention to China's lunar project, looking for chances of cooperation. The U.S. may not be lucky this time because they blocked themselves from all Chinese space programs since 2011. Possible weapon? For sci-fi fans, this may remind them about Netflix TV comedy series "Space Force", which depicts a fictional fight between the Chinese and U.S. moon crew that destroyed the moon base of both nations. Though the comedy made space war look funny, the reality is that a moon base could possibly be utilized as a weapon. "We Chinese stand against space warfare," said Ouyang Zhiyuan, chief scientist at China's lunar project. "But that won't stop others using the moon in wars." Controlling the high ground can be useful for soldiers. That's why people capture mountain tops and build castles during battles. In modern warfare, planes and satellites are often used to provide advantage in height. The highest place humans have ever reached is the moon. "Every space power is saying they want to build research facilities on the moon," Ouyang told Global People, "but it's only an excuse. What they actually want is occupying land on the moon." Ouyang described the possibility of setting up light speed weapons on the moon. Such weapon can hit target on Earth in less than two seconds. "And you can't destroy the weapon because it's too far away," he added. Endless energy? The moon may help humans to destroy ourselves, but it may also help us survive longer in the universe. The moon has no atmosphere, so there's almost nothing blocking the sunlight. This makes the moon a great place to build solar power plants maybe better than anywhere on Earth. In addition, the moon may help us build an "endless" energy source the artificial sun. Modern science has revealed that most of the energy we use today originated from sunlight coal and oil are basically storage of ancient sunlight. Scientists and engineers have been trying to build a smaller sun on Earth for decades. And Helium-3 is a great fuel to that. 100 tons of Helium-3 can generate the energy needed by all humans for a year. And there may be a million tons of Helium-3 on the moon which can help humans survive another 10,000 years. Building the artificial sun requires many strict conditions, some of which can be easily met on the moon since the sphere has much less gravity than the Earth. Listen to CGTN's Zou Yue explaining why the "artificial sun" can change everything. Imagine if we don't need oil anymore. Lots of wars will become pointless and we may enjoy one of the most peaceful ages ever. Isn't that great? And that's why we should continue the effort of lunar exploration. China's international moon lab could be a good start.

(Photo by Olukayode Jaiyeola/NurPhoto via Getty Images) John Nkengasong, director of the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), urged African countries to prepare for the second wave of COVID-19 infections on Thursday. Speaking during a virtual press conference, he said the continent has to prepare for the second wave of COVID-19 infections, as the number of new cases in several African countries is showing a slight increase. “The time for the continent to prepare for the second wave is now,” said Nkengasong. “The continent has done very well in bending the curve, where most infections peak around July and then decline steadily, but now we are beginning to see some stagnation and even slight increase in some African countries,” he said. The Africa CDC chief called on African countries to strengthen surveillance systems, increase testing, engage communities in the response, and promote mask-wearing in order to effectively fight the pandemic. “If we do those things together then we are preparing the continent effectively for the second wave which undoubtedly will be there. I mean that we have seen what is going on in Europe. We want to be sure that we protect against the gains that we’ve achieved over the last 10 months,” said Nkengasong. “The continent finds itself at a very pivotal period, a trying moment for the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We have made so many gains, but the time is now to really prepare for the second wave. We should see what is happening in Europe and observe that with concern, but we can do something about it and the time for that is now,” he said. The Africa CDC, a specialized healthcare agency of the African Union Commission, disclosed the total number of confirmed COVID-19 positive cases across the African continent has reached 1,748, 335 with a death toll of 42,151 as of Thursday.

REUTERS/Siphiwe Sibeko The Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) on Tuesday said that the death toll from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had climbed to 29,833 across the African continent as the number of positive cases rose to 1,252,552. The Africa CDC, noting that five African countries account for over 70 percent of all COVID-19 infections in the continent that are South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Ethiopia, also stressed that some 985,803 people who were infected with COVID-19 had recovered across the continent so far. Amid the rapid spread of the virus across the continent, South Africa alone accounts for about 50 percent of all COVID-19 infections in the continent, followed by Egypt which has close to eight percent of all COVID-19 infections in the continent, the Africa CDC said. The continental disease control and prevention agency said that South Africa is way ahead compared to the rest of the continent both in terms of number of COVID-19 cases and ratio of COVID-19 infected population, the country has so far reported 627,041 cases and 14,149 deaths as of Tuesday. The southern Africa country, which has so far conducted 3,693,721 COVID-19 medical tests, has so far registered 540,923 COVID-19 recoveries, and has 2.3 case fatality ratio, it was noted.
British researchers identify six types of COVID-19 - CGTN
Researchers from the King's College London in the UK have recently identified six distinct types of COVID-19 by analyzing data collected from a COVID-19 tracking application, saying each of the type distinguished by a cluster of symptoms.
Researchers from the King's College London in the UK have recently identified six distinct types of COVID-19 by analyzing data collected from a COVID-19 tracking application, saying each of the type distinguished by a cluster of symptoms. The researchers said these types also correlated with levels of severity of infection, and with the likelihood of a patient needing help with breathing during hospitalization, such as oxygen or ventilator treatment. The findings "have major implications for clinical management of COVID-19, and could help doctors predict who is most at risk and likely to need hospital care in a second wave of coronavirus infections," according to the college's official website. Data from the COVID Symptom Study app reveals that symptoms including headaches, muscle pains, fatigue, diarrhea, confusion, loss of appetite and shortness of breath are also what patients can experience, besides the three commonly known key symptoms of the disease cough, fever and loss of smell. It also shows that patients differ significantly in the progression and outcome, as some only had mild flu-like symptoms while others suffered acute symptoms or died. In attempt to find out people with what symptoms would develop to a severe condition and who would need oxygen or ventilator support, the researchers used a machine learning algorithm to analyze data from the app obtained from "around 1,600 users in the UK and U.S. with confirmed COVID-19 who had regularly logged their symptoms using the app in March and April." They also tested the algorithm by applying it on another independent dataset of around 1,000 users in the UK, U.S. and Sweden, who had logged their symptoms in May. The study, released online on June 16 but not peer-reviewed by independent scientists, described the six clusters as: 1. "flu-like" with no fever: Headache, loss of smell, muscle pains, cough, sore throat, chest pain, no fever. 2. "flu-like" with fever: Headache, loss of smell, cough, sore throat, hoarseness, fever, loss of appetite. 3. gastrointestinal: Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, diarrhea, sore throat, chest pain, no cough. 4. severe level one, fatigue: Headache, loss of smell, cough, fever, hoarseness, chest pain, fatigue. 5. severe level two, confusion: Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, cough, fever, hoarseness, sore throat, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain. 6. severe level three, abdominal and respiratory: Headache, loss of smell, loss of appetite, cough, fever, hoarseness, sore throat, chest pain, fatigue, confusion, muscle pain, shortness of breath, diarrhea, abdominal pain. Patients with cluster 4, 5 and 6 types were more likely to be admitted to hospitals and more likely to need respiratory support, the researchers said, as "only 1.5 percent of people with cluster 1, 4.4 percent of people with cluster 2 and 3.3 percent of people with cluster 3 COVID-19 required breathing support. These figures were 8.6 percent, 9.9 percent and 19.8 percent for clusters 4, 5 and 6 respectively." "These findings have important implications for care and monitoring of people who are most vulnerable to severe COVID-19," said Dr Claire Steves from King's College London who co-led the study. "If you can predict who these people are at day five, you have time to give them support and early interventions such as monitoring blood oxygen and sugar levels, and ensuring they are properly hydrated simple care that could be given at home, preventing hospitalizations and saving lives." British-developed antibody test At the same time, researchers from the Oxford University partnered with local diagnosis companies have developed a COVID-19 antibody test, which is said to be able to identify if a person has been exposed to the novel coronavirus within 20 minutes, The Telegraph reported on Friday. Designed for home use, the finger-prick test reached an accuracy of 98.6 percent in secret human trials last month. Tens of thousands of prototypes have been manufactured for validation testing of the AbC-19 lateral flow test, and the regulatory approval from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency is expected in coming weeks, the report said. It added that ministers hope that the test will be available for use in a mass screening program before the end of the year.
AstraZeneca manufacturing error clouds vaccine study results - Republic World
AstraZeneca and Oxford University have acknowledged a manufacturing error that is raising questions about preliminary results of their experimental COVID-19 vaccine.
AstraZeneca and Oxford University have acknowledged a manufacturing error that is raising questions about preliminary results of their experimental COVID-19 vaccine. A statement describing the error on Wednesday came days after the company and the university described the shots as "highly effective" and made no mention of why some study participants didn't receive as much vaccine in the first of two shots as expected. In a surprise, the group of volunteers that got a lower dose seemed to be much better protected than the volunteers who got two full doses. In the low-dose group, AstraZeneca said, the vaccine appeared to be 90 per cent effective. In the group that got two full doses, the vaccine appeared to be 62 per cent effective. Combined, the drugmakers said the vaccine appeared to be 70 per cent effective. But the way in which the results were arrived at and reported by the companies has led to pointed questions from experts. The partial results announced on Monday are from large ongoing studies in the UK and Brazil designed to determine the optimal dose of vaccine, as well as examine safety and effectiveness. Multiple combinations and doses were tried in the volunteers. They were compared to others who were given a meningitis vaccine or a saline shot.

How an East African refugee working 80 hours a week cleaning became an MP: Parliamentary maiden speeches begin - New Zealand Herald
Ibrahim Omer cleaned the lecture hall before his first day at university.
As a child in the East African country of Eritrea, Ibrahim Omer wanted to be either a football player or a politician. But when dictatorship took hold of his once tolerant country and he saw how politicians could ruin people's lives he gave up on becoming one. "I vividly remember the fighting. There was no power, there was very little food, the city was surrounded by the fighters for many, many months." In his maiden speech to Parliament, Omer detailed his perilous journey from fleeing Eritrea to becoming a Member of Parliament and New Zealand's first African MP. Omer said he was drafted to Eritrea's national service as a high school student and suffered extreme hardships for what was supposed to be 18 months - but in reality it was indefinite. He decided to leave behind everything he loved and fled to neighbouring Sudan across a border which had a shoot-to-kill policy for deserters, preferring the option to die trying rather than die a slow death. Omer made it to a United Nations camp where he stayed for five years before coming to New Zealand. "I had never heard of this place, if I'm honest. But an immigration officer told me it was one of the most peaceful places in the world. "That was good enough for me because I was sick and tired of looking over my shoulder." Omer picked up minimum-wage jobs, sometimes working more than 80 hours a week to pay the bills and sent money to his family back home. One job was as a security guard before he was attacked and beaten in the middle of the night. He became a cleaner and worked day and night, sacrificing having a life and being part of his community, he said. Omer became involved in the Living Wage Movement through his union and got a pay rise which meant he could go to Victoria University to study politics and international relations. On the Sunday night before his first lecture, he cleaned the theatre he would soon be sitting in as a student. After studying, he became an E T union organiser and this year entered Parliament as number 41 on Labour's list. In his speech, Omer promised to represent the New Zealanders who are struggling on low wages. "They work hard, they work very long hours and yet they still struggle to provide three meals for their kids." Omer said he wanted to see every worker be able to live their lives with dignity. "I'm a son, brother, a friend, I'm a Muslim, I'm a former refugee, I'm a trade unionist and living wage activist." Omer had a raucous standing ovation after his speech, including from his friend and Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson, who sat in the seat in front of him as he spoke to the House. Arena Williams ran out of breath rattling off the names of the more than 50 people who came to watch her maiden speech as a Member of Parliament. Among them were her husband, two young sons and her father, Haare Williams. "He's in his late 80's or early 90's - we're not quite sure. He's never had a birth certificate. "Dad was not a poor kid, because that suggests he didn't have enough money to get by. In fact he had no money - never handled it, never had a reason to see it. "He was raised by his Mori-speaking grandparents on the shores of the Ohiwa Harbour in a raupo whare with a dirt floor, where they were kaitiaki of a holy place for Te Kooti and the Haahi Ringatu." Williams' father became a teacher then a broadcaster and taught his daughter there was "dignity in humility" and that dignity was the most fundamental of all rights, she said. "He also taught me that a change of opinion isn't a sign of intellectual weakness, and how to make peace from conflict. "It's his skill of practical peacemaking that I want to bring to my politics." Williams, who was elected as the MP for Manurewa after Louisa Wall opted to only run on the list, first joined the Labour Party as a teenager out of frustration over Helen Clark's actions on the seabed and foreshore issue. She wanted to change the decisions from the inside. Williams said she'd been inspired by senior Labour MP Nanaia Mahuta since she was trailblazing for wahine Mori, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for shifting the goalposts on factoring kindness into policy. Williams thanked her husband, Max Hardy, and said she would grieve a little for missing out on as much time with her young sons. "They will no longer have a mum who is at every playdate and rocks them to sleep. I hope when they're older they'll understand that there were other kids in Manurewa who also needed me to look after them. "Kids with rotting teeth in one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Kids without warm, dry homes. Kids I meet in schools whose eyes light up when they meet a politician who looks and talks like them."
Ardern and Collins quarrel over housing crisis as Parliament returns - 1News
Ardern said she would "forever find it galling to be lectured by the leader of the Opposition" on housing.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Opposition leader Judith Collins traded jabs over housing in their speeches in Parliament today. Your playlist will load after this ad Ardern said she would "forever find it galling to be lectured by the leader of the Opposition" on housing. Source: 1 NEWS "House prices rose 25 per cent nationally under the Labour Government before Covid-19 hit, now it is 37 per cent," Collins said. "Under Labour, the state house waiting doubled before the pandemic. Now it has tripled." "Since Jacinda Ardern became Prime Minister, the average house has earned more than the average worker. Its a sad state of affairs, and it needs fixing right away. "We now have more than 360,000 people receiving the accommodation supplement. More than half of the entire rental market is having some of their rent paid by the taxpayer. We cant go on this way," Collins said. In Ardern's speech, she told the House she would "forever find it galling to be lectured by the leader of the Opposition who left us a housing crisis, denied it was a housing crisis, and I have to say, whose major response to that housing crisis was to sell state houses to cut the public housing waiting list". "On the one thing that would make all the difference, planning, they did absolutely nothing. Figures released by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand earlier this month shows New Zealand's median house price increased by 19.8 per cent from $605,000 in October last year to $725,000 this October. In Auckland in October, the city's median house price hit a record $1 million. Ardern also thanked New Zealand "for the honour and the privilege to be back here". "This is, in this 53rd Parliament, the most diverse Parliament we have ever had and that's because New Zealanders have chosen to reflect who we are as a nation in this House of Representatives. "We will be a Government for all New Zealanders," she said.

'Hot money' yields $439-M net inflows in October: BSP - ABS-CBN News
Hot money posted net inflows in October, reversing 7 consecutive months of outflows, the Bangko Sentral said in a statement.
MANILA - Hot money posted net inflows in October, reversing 7 consecutive months of outflows, the Bangko Sentral said in a statement. BSP-registered foreign portfolio investments yielded $439 million for the month, as gross inflows reached $1.4 billion outpacing outflows of $913 million. Around 78.8 percent of the total investments went to companies listed in the stock exchange, while the remaining 21.2 percent went to investments in government securities. The UK, US, Singapore, Luxembourg and Hong Kong were the top five investor countries for the month, with combined share to total at 80.9 percent, the BSP said. Net outflows for the January to October period was at $3.9 billion. This is larger than the 2019 year ago figure of $1.2 billion, it said due to "the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to the global economy and financial system, coupled with international and domestic developments such as geopolitical tensions, certain corporate governance issues and extended quarantine measures in select regions in the country." The Philippine economy shrank 11.5 percent in the third quarter, marking the first time in 35 years that the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) contracted for three straight quarters. The third quarter slump was steeper than the 9.8 percent decline seen by economists in a Reuters poll.
Diego Armando Maradona y su controversial relación con Hugo Chávez y Nicolás Maduro - El Nacional
Desde joven Maradona se vinculó con el comunismo por lo que mantuvo una estrecha amistad con Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez y Nicolás Maduro
Este miércoles 25 de noviembre en la mañana, la prensa argentina confirmó el fallecimiento del astro del fútbol Diego Armando Maradona, que sufrió un paro cardiorrespiratorio. La noticia se ha vuelto tendencia, pero no solo por quienes recuerdan sus logros como futbolista, sino también por los escándalos en los que se le vio envuelto, tanto por sus adicciones a los estupefacientes como por sus vínculos con el comunismo. Especialmente, por sus estrecha amistad con Hugo Chávez. Un amigo en común: Fidel Castro AFP Desde joven, Maradona mostró simpatía por las corrientes de izquierda, por el comunismo. Gracias a ello en 1987 conoció a Fidel Castro, con quien mantuvo amistad hasta la muerte del líder de la Revolución cubana. Se conocieron en La Habana, donde el futbolista le obsequió a Castro una camiseta de la Selección argentina de fútbol luego de ganar el Mundial de 1986 que se disputó en México. Desde entonces mantuvieron contacto por medio de cartas y eventuales visitas del argentino a Cuba. Sin embargo, sus lazos se volvieron más estrechos en el año 2000, cuando Castro convenció al deportista de internarse en la clínica internacional La Pradera, en La Habana, para que tratara su adicción a las drogas. Maradona permaneció allí varios meses. Tatuajes En agradecimiento por ayudarlo en su rehabilitación, Maradona optó por tatuarse la pierna izquierda con el rostro de Castro, y en un brazo se tatuó el rostro del Che Guevara. En reiteradas ocasiones, el futbolista argentino dijo: Fidel es el más grande de la historia. “Fidel, si algo he aprendido contigo a lo largo de años de sincera y hermosa amistad, es que la lealtad no tiene precio”, aseguró Maradona en una carta escrita el 15 de enero de 2015. Twitter Fidel fue mi segundo padre El 25 de noviembre de 2016 falleció Fidel Castro, lo cual constituyó un duro golpe para Maradona. El día es horrible. Anoche me comunicaron que murió el más grande; el más grande sin ninguna duda. Fidel Castro nos dejó. Fue muy chocante y muy terrible porque Fidel fue como mi segundo padre, expresó el argentino. Yo viví cuatro años en Cuba y Fidel me llamaba a las dos de la mañana; nos tomábamos un mojito para hablar de política, o de deporte o de lo que sucediera en el mundo y yo estaba dispuesto para hablar, ese es el recuerdo más lindo que me queda, contó en esa ocasión. Maradona en Venezuela La cercanía entre Maradona y Castro terminó por acercarlo a otro buen amigo de Fidel: Hugo Chávez. Aunque sus encuentros fueron escasos, mostraban una notable simpatía. Además, en sus recurrentes intervenciones, Chávez solía referirse al argentino como un ejemplo por seguir en el ámbito deportivo. De hecho, Maradona fue invitado expresamente por Chávez a la II Cumbre de los Pueblos y la IV Cumbre de las Américas, en noviembre de 2005. Un evento que el futbolista recordaba con frecuencia como una de las anécdotas que guardaba con mayor agrado. Más tarde, luego del Mundial de Suráfrica 2010, Maradona pasó por Venezuela y dio una rueda de prensa. Al lugar llegó el mismo Chávez, quien se acercó para saludarlo. Algún día le ganamos a la Argentina y a Brasil, bromeó Chávez. Muerte de Chávez Al igual que con Fidel Castro, Maradona siempre mantuvo contacto con Chávez. Tras el fallecimiento del entonces presidente venezolano, el 5 de marzo de 2013, el argentino expresó su pesar. Lo que me dejó Hugo fue una gran amistad, una sabiduría política increíble. Hugo Chávez ha cambiado la forma de pensar del latinoamericano, nosotros estábamos entregados a Estados Unidos y él nos metió en la cabeza que podíamos caminar solos, declaró. Semanas después, Maradona llegó a Caracas para visitar la tumba de Chávez, adonde fue acompañado por Nicolás Maduro. Maduro y Maradona en el Cuartel de la Montaña Nunca te rendiste. Luchaste hasta tu último suspiro. A siete años de tu partida estás más presente que nunca. Hasta cada momento comandante Hugo Chávez, escribió el argentino el 5 de marzo de este 2020, séptimo aniversario de la muerte de Chávez. Comentarista del Mundial 2014 en Telesur Debido a sus relaciones con el chavismo, la cadena Telesur le propuso participar como comentarista del Mundial Brasil 2014. Ha llegado el momento emocionante de mi vida de firmar este contrato que me liga a Telesur, me liga a mis amigos venezolanos, me liga al presidente (Nicolás) Maduro y que, por sobre todas las cosas, me siento muy muy amigo del comandante Chávez. Vamos a transmitir todo el Mundial de Brasil en Telesur porque así lo hubiera querido el comandante, expresó Maradona. Un soldado de Nicolás Maduro En abril de 2017 se desataron protestas multitudinarias en Venezuela que derivaron en la muerte violenta de más de 130 jóvenes a manos de cuerpos del régimen. En agosto, tras cuatro meses de protestas continuas y luego de la instalación de la asamblea nacional constituyente, Maradona expresó su contundente respaldo a Nicolás Maduro y se ofreció como un soldado para pelear contra el imperialismo. “Somos chavistas hasta la muerte y cuando Maduro ordene estoy vestido de soldado para una Venezuela libre, para pelear contra el imperialismo y los que se quieren apoderar de nuestras banderas, que son lo más sagrado que tenemos”, escribió en redes sociales. Y agregó: “Viva Chávez !!!! Viva Maduro!! Viva la revolución!!! Vivan los venezolanos de pura cepa, no los venezolanos interesados e involucrados con la derecha”. Juego en Fuerte Tiuna Un mes después, el argentino visitó Venezuela para participar en un juego amistoso con Nicolás Maduro en Fuerte Tiuna, donde también estuvieron presentes Tareck el Aissami, Rafael Lacava y otros ministros del régimen. Durante el encuentro, Maduro obsequió a Maradona una fotografía junto a Hugo Chávez, una chaqueta y gorro tricolor y una franela de la Vinotinto con su nombre y el número 10. “Vi a un Nicolás fuerte, conocí a mucha gente que no afloja y en el fútbol por más que pierdas 3-0 no aflojes nunca y vos no aflojaste nunca y te la jugaste por tu pueblo”, dijo el futbolista sobre Maduro. Acompañado de nuestro hermano de la Patria Grande, Diego Armando Maradona en un encuentro de fútbol amistoso https://t.co/1Q3JWR1ayB — Nicolás Maduro (@NicolasMaduro) November 7, 2017 Última visita La última visita de Maradona a territorio venezolano ocurrió a principios de este año. Hoy tuve el privilegio de que me recibieras en tu casa, Nicolás Maduro, junto a tu señora esposa. Me hicieron sentir realmente muy cómodo. Aquí se respira lucha y revolución. Gracias por continuar con el legado del comandante eterno, Hugo Chávez, escribió Maradona en Instagram el 22 de enero. @DeisyKarina8 https://www.instagram.com/p/B7mtlnDFiog/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
