A regulation unveiled by the State Council on Sunday prohibits authorit

ies from borrowing in ways that skirt laws and regulations to raise government in

vestment funds, as China works to further standardize official investment actions.

The regulation, published after a State Council decree was signed by Premi

er Li Keqiang, stipulates that government investment actions must take account of eco

nomic and social development levels and the situation of financial revenue and expenditures.

It did not take them long to spot a school of fish. Stopping the boat, Berry started to feed a 180-m

eter-long net into the water as Irwin maneuvered the boat to form the net into a large circle.

With the net in place, they then steered the boat in a circle, banging the hull with a wooden st

ick. Immediately, carp started to jump out of the water before splashing back in.

nt goals are firmly established in people’s minds, the significance of hosting the exhibition will have been achieved.

This may sound catastrophic, but images being sharedf Decembe

  ’s fireball are actually quite poetic in scale. This atomic, otherworldly force appears as a simple red blip above the clouds.

  Some colour views of the #meteor that flew over the North Pacific in December 2018, taken by Japan’s #Himawari satellite.

  The meteor is really clear here – bright orange fireball against the blue + white background!

  But you likely didn’t know about it until now, because scientists only just noticed it.

That’s because the area where the fireball exploded, over the Bering Sea, is extremely remote.

  NASA’s Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson told the BBC s

uch a powerful meteor event only happens a few times every 100 years. (As a side no

te, “Planetary Defense Officer” is probably as close to a real-life “Avengers” title as you’re gonna get.)

  CNN has reached out to NASA for additional comment.

  In case you’re not uneasy enough about the reality that flaming extraterr

estrial objects are continuously pelting our fragile planet, they do so with alarming regularity.

  NASA keeps track of most of the notable fireballs and bolides (a similar astronomical term) that reach Earth. So far in

2019, there have already been five notable fireball events. Don’t worry, though! Most are super tiny.

  And if the big one ever comes along to make dinosaurs of us all, NASA’s Planetary Defense Office has our backs.

Lack of sleep among children and teenagers deserves high

attention, because it can seriously affect their health and growth,” she said. Such a group should sleep at least eight hours a day, she added.

Zhao Zhongxin, a professor specialized in treating sleep disorders

at Shanghai Changzheng Hospital, said getting adequate sleep is very important.

“Sleep promotes growth, protects the brain and improves the immune system,” he said. “Long-term deprivation of sleep will

bring risks of diseases and conditions such as dementia and cause lasting health damage.”

Wang Guanghai, a member of the Chinese Sleep Research Society and a psychological consultant, said the exces

sive use of electronics products in China is depriving children and teens of sleeping time.

“Some of them use tablets for more than four hours a day,” he said. “It has become a serious problem that affects minors’ health.”
