The International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the Asia and the Pacific region’s “regional economic outlook: October 2017 latest forecast” pointed out that Asia and the Pacific this year, next year’s economic growth is expected to be expected in the United States, the United States, the United States, Respectively, 5.6%, 5.5%, Asia and China with its strong growth rate will continue to lead the global economic growth.
The report emphasizes that Asia’s strong spending and investment and better-than-expected external demand have contributed to the pick-up of economic growth. At the same time, due to the current risks, including China’s rapid growth of credit, protectionism and the rise of geopolitical tensions, will enable economic policy makers to continue to accelerate the pace of reform.
IMF Asia Pacific Director Li Changyong said that Asia’s economic growth momentum remains strong, and thus in a favorable position. The positive factors in the region provide an opportunity for the implementation of structural reforms and the resolution of vulnerabilities.
At present, Asia’s financial situation is also more favorable, thanks to the first half of this year, large-scale inflow of capital. While the outlook for economic growth has been raised, inflation this year has been lowered to 2.3%, down 0.6 percentage points from April’s forecast, mainly due to falling commodity prices and currency appreciation. However, growth in Asia is strong but uneven, and the overall recovery in economic growth in the region is attributable to stronger-than-expected economic growth in China, Japan, South Korea and ASEAN countries, helping offset the weakening growth prospects for Australia and India.

Especially China, as the region’s largest economy, this year’s economic growth is expected to reach 6.8% next year to 6.5%.

This is why? The The
Astronomy circle has been boiling. Crazy pass. Everyone is talking about it.
Visual Monday big news came out, will set off no less than the first gravitational wave when the public opinion waves.
However, in a speculation, Nature magazine news section in August this year, a low-key official “rumor”, in fact, has leaked the secret.
Although this situation, I have now clear, but based on self-media from the professional conduct, I now can not use my hand has been confidential information to speak abroad. Then I will probably compile the main content of the official rumors of Nature (including some of my accompanying explanation).
This rumor was published on August 23 of this year – when I was still immersed in the August 21 Day of the total solar eclipse of the excitement and lavish, so at that time did not notice the news. The article said that after the United States LIGO (and later joined the European Virgo) saw a total of three gravitational wave events, are double black hole merger, but we also look forward to see another similar but different phenomenon: double neutron star Merge together. It seems that they are all close together with dense objects, and from the point of view of gravitational waves (at least for pedestrians) it looks like – the ever-increasing frequency of “birds”. But there is one of the biggest difference between them, that is, when the black hole is combined, really black, no electromagnetic waves will be emitted; and two neutron stars together, the electromagnetic band will release a huge amount of energy, which can be in the traditional Of the electromagnetic wave telescope to detect this event and after the afterglow – meaning that will be glowing. Although other people want to play together, only with the original hand, mainly electromagnetic wave telescope to follow up Observation.
So since the first discovery of the gravitational wave event, in the visible, radio, high energy and other electromagnetic bands follow the LIGO / Virgo gravitational wave events, look at the direction of the prediction there is no new electromagnetic band of small bright spots, became astronomy A holy grail of competition. On August 18 this year, J. Craig Wheeler of the University of Texas at Austin opened the first rumor of “rumors” that he said on foreign social networking sites:
“LIGO NEW One hour later, Peter Yoachim of the University of Washington, Seattle, said on the same website that the optical counterpart of the gravitational wave source is located in the NGC 4993 galaxy, which is a meta-wave source, with an optical counterpart. “
Located in the water snake galaxy, distance of 130 million light years. He also said that “the initial judgment is the double neutron star.”
NGC 4993, archival data from the Sloan Sky Survey (it does not contain the incident optical counterpart) International Cooperative
LIGO is a country with Yan Ming discipline, so that unauthorized dissemination of information, regardless of organizational discipline Act was soon invited to drink tea. After the two my dear friend or delete the tweet, or words vaguely apologize.
But since the rumors have spread, they can not stop the good things to ask the root.
By looking into the public information, people quickly found that in the days when they published the tweets, many important telescopes in the world were pointing to the same area – it was Yoachim’s NGC 4993 area. For example, on August 17th, the US astronomical satellite Fermi’s Gamma Storm Monitor was triggered by a gamma storm: GRB 170817A.
Gamma violence is the astronomical phenomenon of extreme high-energy events in the universe. The double neutron star is one of the events that can trigger this phenomenon.
Another example, the Hubble Space Telescope observable application shows that some people applied for the August 22 and 29 of the four observation time, used to observe the “double neutron star combined” to bring the “infrared radiation” The The application also explains the source of this radiation: the double neutron star and the co-process will produce a large number of heavy elements through the r process, the radioactive decay of these elements can be tested by infrared radiation.
The target of the observation application is NGC 4993. LEGO, Leaks and NGC 4993 in August 23, mention that the Chandra X-ray Observatory also observed the incident on August 19, and the event was recorded on August 19, In the Chandra’s website was recorded as “SGRB170817A” – SGRB is the meaning of short gamma storm.
Nature news said that the European Southern Observatory Great Telescope (VLT), Atacama large millimeter millimeter wave array (ALMA), the two world’s top optical and radio telescopes, also on August 18-19 to NGC 4993 Was observed.
August 25 is the last day of LIGO / Virgo’s “grid-connected” observation season. On the same day, Nature News added an update to its “rumors” page: the LIGO / Virgo partnership publishes a response that looks like a “rumor” as follows:
(The original title: the United States on the Iranian nuclear agreement to enlarge the bill of call Trump out of those international agreements)
According to foreign media reports, US President Trump announced on the 13th to the US Congress to confirm Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement, and threatened to use administrative power at any time to tear up the Iranian nuclear agreement. This move shocked the analysts. Richard Haass, who served as director of the State Council’s Policy Planning at the Bush administration, summarized it as “withdrawal doctrine.” Former Swedish Prime Minister and current chairman of the European Commission on Foreign Relations (Carl Bildt) said that Trump will be a veritable “torn traders”. July 1, US President Trump at the White House announced that the United States will withdraw from the “Paris Agreement.”
Data Figure: local time on June 1, He also stressed that the United States may return to the agreement on climate change, but the prerequisite is that the agreement must be more “fair” to the United States. China International News Agency reporter Diao Haiyang photo
Since taking office, the US president to withdraw or threaten to withdraw from the international agreement which? Are summarized as follows:
In June this year, Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the 196 countries jointly signed the Paris Climate Protection Agreement and sought to negotiate a new climate protection deal. He declared that he was elected president to “represent the interests of citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris”, accusing the Paris Agreement of providing benefits to other countries, leaving the US industry at a disadvantage and losing a lot of jobs. But the United States really withdraw from the Paris agreement to the earliest until 2020 will take effect. A few days after the White House, Trump signed a decree announcing that the United States withdrew from the Transpacific Strategic Partnership Agreement (TPP )
The world’s largest trade cooperation agreement was signed in February 2016. This agreement can basically be said to be “aborted” because the United States has withdrawn before it has yet to be fully implemented. Trump advocated negotiations with the countries concerned on bilateral trade agreements in order to reach a more favorable US deal.
local time on October 12, the US State Department announced that the United States decided to withdraw from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Under the terms and conditions, the withdrawal of the United States will take effect on December 31, 2018. The picture shows the location of the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France. On Thursday, the Washington side announced that the United States would withdraw from the UNESCO (UNESCO ) to protest the agency’s “anti-Israel position”. The decision will take effect by the end of 2018. Since then the United States will retain the organization’s observer status in order to remain influential.
Friday, Trump announced refused to confirm to the US Congress Iran to fulfill the contents of the nuclear agreement . After the trip to Trump, Congress passed an Iranian nuclear agreement review bill, the president must be 90 days to Congress to confirm whether Iran has abided the agreement. In the absence of confirmation by the President, Congress must decide whether to resume its sanctions against Iran within 60 days. Trump announced that it would not be confirmed again, the equivalent of whether to tear up the Iranian nuclear agreement to the United States Congress. The Iranian nuclear agreement was signed in 2015, with five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany. Trent has ordered the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) signed in 1994 with Mexico and Canada and calls it the worst trade deal in history. The negotiations were launched in August, but the US president has threatened to withdraw from the prospect of a bilateral deal if he could not reach a more equitable deal to the US before the end of the year.
