What they have done, specifically the iPad Air, is adopt tech

  nology like the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, which used to be exclusive to the iPad Pro,” Stant

on said. “Now that iPad Pro has been redesigned with slim bezels and rounded-edges, its previous exclu

sive features can trickle down to cheaper price points. This is especially savvy of Apple because it stands to bene

fit from greater revenue from accessories as products like Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil become more accessible.”

  Apple was widely expected to tease the iPads ahead of its spring event on March 25, indicati

ng the company is more open to unveiling non-critical hardware updates without so much spectacle.

  ”Apple wants to get the iPad out of the way so it can hold its first event truly focused on streaming,” Lauren Guenveur, senior research analyst at IDC told

CNN Business. “If Apple announced new Pads, it would turn into a hardware event, and that’s not what it wants.”

  Tablet shipments have declined in the past few years, especially among devices that don’t come with a keyboard. “Per

haps what’s the point for having an event for a declining category?” Guenveur added.

She became the first world leader in nearly 30 years to give

  birth in office, and then by taking her three-month old daughter Neve to the United Nations, where Ardern was pho

tographed playing with the baby alongside partner Clarke Gayford. Neve looked on as her mother addressed the assem

bly while Gayford, whom the couple say is the main caregiver for their daughter, held the baby.

  Speaking to CNN after her address, Ardern said she wanted to “normalize” the ide

a of being a working mother, and described New Zealand as “incredibly progressive.”

  Since coming to power, Ardern has presented an image in stark contrast to leaders of many large Western nations. As co

untries, including the United States, have attempted to keep migrants out, Ardern has actively sought to bring them in.

  She’s made multiple offers to take in refugees languishing on Manus Island and Nauru,

atch against Venezuela, at the 2016 Olympics, ended in a 68-72 defeat. China and Poland have never met before in official competition.

First, he claimed that the former President had predicted

  2016 that British voters would reject leaving the European Union in a

referendum while he had predicted they would vote to exit the bloc.

  Obama did not bet on the outcome. But he did however warn Britons

they would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US if they left the EU.

  Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwilling to “negotiate with the Obam

a administration” about trade. In fact, the previous administration sought to conclude a Tran

satlantic Trade and Investment Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the

line. Trump’s own talks on trade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a President who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Tr

ump, who was forced into a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

Sports participation, as part of all-around education, sho

uld be given a more prominent role on campus, whereas now acade

mic excellence seems to be the main priority in our country,” Yao told China Daily on Sun

day in Beijing during the annual session of the country’s top political advisory body.

“Building organized and accessible sports competitions with tailor-made programs and adequate facilities is the key to involv

ing as many students as possible,” said Yao, who is chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association.

At last year’s two sessions, he proposed implementation of a “m

ini basketball” program for younger students. It saw 10,000 participants registered with the CBA

Xi urges military to meet goalsing, also general secretary of

This year crucial for realizing five-year plan on development of the armed forces

President Xi Jinping urged the military on Tuesday to make all-out efforts to ensure its goals for 2020 are fully realized in a timely manner.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Milit

ary Commission, told national legislators from the People’s Liberation Army and the People’s Armed Police Forc

e that this year is crucial to fulfilling the armed forces’ 13th five-year development plan, from 2016 to 2020.

He asked all military personnel to understand the significance and urgency of the plan’s realization and spare no effort to turn its goals into reality.

Xi ordered the military to focus on improving its com

bat readiness and capability. It should also deepen its reform, foster innovation and present new ach

ievements for the coming 70th birthday of the People’s Republic of China in October, he added.

He said that to achieve the 2020 goals, the military mus

strengthen planning and coordination, concentrate resources on its priorities and enhance its accountability system.

More attention should be given to projects that concern the military’s combat readiness

fforts, and those key to boosting the armed forces’ operational capability or to facilitating reforms in natio

nal defense. The military should gear up such projects and make sure they are of high quality, according to Xi.

Policies pertaining to military buildup and troop management should be refined to lay a solid foundation for the realization of the goals.

Xi ordered the military to intensify its internal supervision and inspection to prevent and

uproot the practice of formalities for formalities’ sake and bureaucratism. Funds should be used whe

re they are truly needed, and the virtues of hard work and thrift should be promoted. Management and scrutiny over

the use of funds should be strengthened to eliminate misconduct and corruption, he said.

Sarah Sanders says it’s too “early in the process” for US to ground

  White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Fox News Tuesday said that it’s too “early in the process” for the United States to ground the fleet of Boeing 737 MAX 8s.

  Sanders said the decision will ultimately be a process and that the administration

will be in constant contact with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation.

  “We know a lot of people in the industry have started to voice concerns about the amount of technology and taki

ng the power out of the hands of the pilots,” Sanders said. “You saw the President talk about that in his tweets earlier today,” she added.

  President Trump tweeted earlier Tuesday that “airplanes are becoming far too com

plex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT.”

  Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but ra
