And given the consensus reached by the international com

munity, China should more actively participate in the process to make rules for global academic research.

Clear red lines must be drawn

Given that uncertainties and risks abound in the early st

ages of the development of cutting-edge technologies, the process is bound to involve some c

ontroversies. Still, there is a lack of strict regulations, especially those related to some emerging industries and technologies. Which me

ans the authorities need to expedite legislation for relevant laws and rules for research in science and technology.

But that should not prompt the authorities to forbid sch

olars from conducting research for the fear that they would violate the existing norms and invite

public ire. After all, progress made in science and technology in one country will propel the development of people acr

oss the world. The key is to set clear red lines to remove all confusions over scientific research.

Indian PM Modi’s reputation as a strong leader put to

  As tensions between India and Pakistan escalate yet again wit

h Delhi launching airstrikes on what it says was a terrorist training camp across its de facto bord

er with Islamabad, all eyes are on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

  As the world’s biggest democracy heads into general elections in a few weeks, the

government’s stance on its nuclear armed neighbor comes at a critical time.

  Modi built up formidable support ahead of his 2014 campaign, in which his Bha

ratiya Janata Party (BJP) claimed a record-breaking 282 seats in the national parliament.

  Since joining the Hindu nationalist organization Rashtriya Sway

amsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1972, and joining ma

instream politics 15 years later as a member of the BJP, Modi has enjoyed a steady rise to power.

New York Oil Price 30 Rising Watch out for a Strong Ad

WTI crude oil prices rose for the third consecutive day on Thursday (January 31). As Opec

tightened its markets, declining U.S. oil imports and sanctions imposed by the United States on Ve

nezuela made it difficult for Venezuela to maintain its crude oil exports, driving up oil prices. According to Xinhua News Agency, oil prices in New York rose on th

e 30th and light crude oil futures for delivery in March rose by $0.92 to close at $54.23 a barrel.

Crude oil prices have strengthened after signs that OPEC’s output cuts have affected trade. EIA’s weekly report shows th

at U.S. imports from Saudi Arabia fell by more than half from the previous week to 442,000 barrels a day. This is the se

cond lowest level in weekly data since 2010; US commercial crude oil inventories increased by 919,000 barrels to

445,494 million barrels in the week ending January 25. Inventories increased by 6.6% over the same period last year.

Saudi Arabia is actually the leader of OPEC. Together with a number of non-O

PEC oil producers, including Russia, the organization announced production cu

ts at the end of 2018 aimed at tightening markets and boosting oil prices.
