What’s interesting is t上海夜生活uestions are very oft

ten the same ones I would ask. That’s what we do with the show. We go straight to heart of the matter and take on very central question

s – like why are we are, how did we get here and what should we be doing? And the answer is that we don’t fully k上海夜生活女神会所

now, but we have a vague idea. I can talk about the edge of our knowledge and that raises the questions that we all ask.

上海夜生活The important thing about science is that it shouldn’t be separated from other aspects of human endeavor.

I think science can be described as a human reaction to nature, and that’s the motivating factor. There’s only one intere

sting question really, in my view, which is: What does it mean to be small, fragile and finite – to live a small, fragile a上海夜生活女神会所

nd finite life in an infinite universe? That, ultimately, is the only question that I’m interested in.

Physics is like a rule book for the building blocks we encounter, compar

tmentalizing why and how things happen, and establishing reason and fact. But probability seems like the devil’s advoca上海夜生活

te; it comes along and stirs it all up in ways that are unknowable and unanswerable. Isn’t the very random natu

re of our existence here what makes our presence on Earth an ecstatic one to celebrate?上海夜生活女神会所

There’s a sequence where I say exactly that in the show. Why is the Earth the way it is?

It’s a very complex mixture of the simple laws of nature and chance, and separating the tw上海夜生活

o is important if you’re trying to think about our place in the universe. You have to understand there’s a lo

上海夜生活女神会所t of chance involved, which we can’t make sense of. It’s just like blind chance. For example, the asteroid that wiped out the d

inosaurs – had that flicked one speck of dust a different way in relation to the solar system, we might not have happen

ed. We wouldn’t be here. About one billion other things might not have happened, either. (laughs)上海夜生活

So you can’t define a human being through the laws of nature, but you can extract from

the laws of nature a framework that allows you to think. You’re not allowed to stray outside it. For exa上海夜生活

mple, we do know we are very small. But there’s nothing we can do about that. I struggle with that sometimes.

上海夜生活女神会所One of your BBC programs begins with a lovely moment where you examine the beauty of a snowflake.

The inspiration for that came from the 17th century and an incredible work called The Six-C

ornered Snowflake by (Johannes) Kepler. It is absolutely brilliant. It’s considered the first book to e上海夜生活

ver describe the structure of crystals or snowflakes, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

A courtier is charged by his king to bring the most valuable gift he can find that is close to上海夜生活

nothing. So the courtier considers some water, some dust and then the snowflake. “I’ll give you the most val

uable gift, which is the closest thing to nothing I can find,” he says. Kepler is a great ge上海夜生活女神会所

nius, with the most amazing mind. Every single question he asks about the universe so long ago is correct.

mbulance and helicop上海夜生活to save baby’s lif

A two-month-old baby with serious illnesses was rushed by land and air from Enshi, Central China’s Hubei province, to Wuhan Chil

dren’s Hospital, 500 kilometers away, to receive urgent treatment by way of Yichang, a city in between.上海夜生活

The boy, nicknamed Xiaoen, is an abandoned infant. About a month ago on June 16, he was discovered under a bri

上海夜生活品茶微信dge by a passerby in Lichuan, Enshi and sent to a local children’s welfare home for care and adoption.

One day later, the staff at the welfare home found Xiaoen’s face had turned blue and上海夜生活

purple and he was short of breath. He was soon taken to the central hospital of Enshi.

上海夜生活品茶微信Xiaoen was diagnosed with a number of cardiac and pulmonary ill

nesses, including congenital heart disease, pulmonary infection and pulmonary arter上海夜生活

ial hypertension. Treatments to strengthen the heart, help him urinate and control infection were given to the baby boy.

上海夜生活品茶微信During his 33-day hospitalization, Xiaoen was in critical condition and several times had to undergo emergency treatments.

Given the great complexity of Xiaoen’s case, the doctors decided to transfer him to a more advanced medica

l facility where he could receive advanced treatment to increase his chances of life. They contacted the Wuhan Children’s H上海夜生活品茶微信

ospital, a higher-level facility in the province’s capital, Wuhan, and asked for assistance.

On July 16, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital received the application for hospital transfer. After revie上海夜生活

wing the case, a group of experts, including those specializing in cardiothoracic and cardiovascular diseases, came to the sa

上海夜生活品茶微信me conclusion: That the patient had been in critical condition, that heart failure emerged due to multiple pulm

onary infections and he was in need of operations as soon as possible. A hospital transfer became imperative.上海夜生活

The distance from Enshi to Wuhan exceeds 500 kilometers. It would take at least eight ho

上海夜生活urs for an ambulance to cover the distance, but a faster high-speed train or passenger plane couldn’t

be loaded with the medical equipment necessary to keep the baby alive during transport.

At last, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital decided to employ a medical rescue helicopter to transport the sick baby. It carries上海夜生活品茶微信

a ventilator, infusion pump, ECG monitor and many other medical devices and the trip to Enshi would only take two hours.

The transfer was originally scheduled for Wednesday but unfavorable weather conditions hindered the helicopter’s takeoff. R

上海夜生活品茶微信ainy season has been upon Hubei and massive rainfalls have affected many parts of the province. Mountain ranges on

the flight path have been shrouded in heavy mists and clouds, posing a high risk to the safety of the flight.上海夜生活品茶微信

On Friday, Xiaoen’s condition deteriorated again. There was not much time left to wait and a new plan was proposed.

hina-US trade has benefited both countries: report

hina-United States trade has been mutually beneficial, and the

US has reaped substantial benefits from bilateral econo

mic and trade cooperation, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday in a research report.

“China-US economic and trade cooperation has reached unprecedented depth and breadth,” said the report, noti

ng that bilateral trade surged last year by roughly 252 times since 1979 to $633.5 billion.

Bilateral trade in services exceeded $125 billion in 2018, and two-wa

y direct investment has totaled nearly $160 billion in the past four decades.

Since the current US administration came to power, it has ignored the mutual econ

omic and trade cooperation between two nations, said Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman.

Two-way trade between China and Russia hit a record high

of over $100 billion last year. Major strategic cooperation projects have been steadily carrie

d out in such areas as energy, transportation, agriculture, aviation and space.

Xi said that the notable results of the two countries’ business cooperation are especially valuable given the current co

mplex environment of sluggish global trade and investment and surging protectionism in the world.

China and Russia are making proactive efforts to bring their trade

volume to a higher level and promote high-quality development in bilateral trade, he added.

Xi will also attend the 23rd St. Petersburg International Econ

omic Forum and address its plenary session during the visit.

Under the trade pressure, the world’s second-largest ec

conomy is accelerating restructuring reform and shifting from an export-dominated growth model to a more services-driven model, they added.

“The United States escalated trade tensions, but it cannot solve any pro

blem. This causes volatility and sluggishness in global financial markets and hurts the global ec

onomy,” said Guo Shuqing, the People’s Bank of China’s Party secretary and also head of the China Banking and In

surance Regulatory Commission. His keynote speech was delivered by a commission spokesman at a forum on Saturday.

Impact on the Chinese economy will be very limited, said Guo. “Chinese finan

ikely to be hit more dramatically going forward, as financial resilience is strengthening.”

Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut

Shares of Luckin Coffee, a fast-growing rival to Starbucks in China, rose 20 percent in their US stock market debut Friday.

The Chinese company, which opened its first store in Beijing less than two years ago, has

2,370 locations and plans to surpass the 3,700 stores Starbucks has in China by the end of the year.

But unlike Starbucks, Luckin is losing money.

It brought in $125 million in revenue last year, but spent much more th

an that on coffee beans, store rent and other costs. Last year, it lost $475 million.

Most of Luckin’s stores are small, have few seats and are used mainly as a place to pick up mobile orders.

It also offers delivery in 30 minutes and promises a refund for delays or spilled drinks.
