Guenveur believes the new 10.5-inch iPad Air could stru

  uggle to find a place in the market considering the 11-inch iPad Pro is still a more powe

rful option that also supports the pencil. The iPad Mini, however, could push a decent amount of people to upgrade.

  ”There is certainly a market for the iPad Mini, especially among

students and teens, but I don’t know for how long the upgrade cycle for it will be,’ Guenveur said. “I

suspect it will do very well for one large upgrade cycle for the rest of the year and then slowly drop off.”

  Correction: An earlier version of this story detailed incorrectly what ships with the new iPads.The

Speaker of Britain’s House of Commons has thrown a constitutional curve ball into the Brexit process.

  Citing a convention that dates back to 1604, John Bercow thwarted an attempt by Prime

Minister Theresa May to hold another vote on her beleaguered Brexit bill this week.

  Parliament has already rejected it twice by substantial margins. But with a deadline of March 29 approaching — at which t

he UK crashes out of the EU unless an agreement is reached — May’s government hoped to bring the deal back a th

ird time. There were even reports that if it failed again, she might return for a fourth attempt.

Ardern also impressed — both inside New Zealand and ov

  verseas — with her quick action following the attack.

  She was quick to label the incident a terrorist attack, a designation that can be lacking fo

r far-right killings, and within hours had vowed to change the law to prevent future atrocities.

  ”Our gun laws will change,” she said, evoking memories of former Australian Prime Minister John Howard who clam

ped down on guns within two weeks of the 1996 massacre at Port Arthur in Tasmania, which killed 35 people.

  True to her word, New Zealand’s cabinet met Monday and agreed on “in prin

ciple” changes to be detailed next week. They’re expected to include a ban on semi-automatic weapons.

  The move has proved popular on the streets of Christchurch wher

e heavily armed police stand guard at roadblocks heaped with flowers in remembrance of the dead.

  ”I think a lot of us in New Zealand have watched what’s happened in America and we sure as hell don’t want to see th

t here,” said Trish Jamieson, a social worker who was laying flowers near the Linwood mosque on Sunday.

On Tuesday Ardern hinted at major changes to come in light

  of the terror attack, especially when it comes to New Zealand’s gun laws.

  New Zealand Prime Minister says, ‘Our gun laws will change’

  The Prime Minister had previously announced that a government inquiry will look into the circumstances leading up to Friday’s attack.

  The inquiry will investigate what agencies knew — or should have known — about th

e gunman’s access to weapons or any impediments into the sharing of information, she said.

  Australian Brenton Harris Tarrant, 28, was charged with

murder on Saturday. He is believed to be the only person responsible for the attacks.

  Tarrant lived in New Zealand’s southern city of Duned

in, around 225 miles from Christchurch. Officials said he had no criminal history in New Zeala

nd or Australia and had not drawn the attention of the intelligence community for extremist views.Tarrant is esco

rted into Christchurch District Court on Saturday. The judge ruled pictures of the suspect in court must have his face blurred.

Reasons abound as to why the cat economy is flourish

ing in China. For one, pet cats are good stress-busters. And in these hectic, stressful times in urban areas, they could prove very useful, experts said.

Agreed Huang Xinyi, 28, a Beijing-based film producer. “Every time my cat purrs at me

, head-butts my face, and rubs against my leg, I want to hug him and kiss him all over.”

Many of her generation, aged 25 to 35, are busy pursuing busy careers in cities, far from their

hometowns. “I get lonely sometimes, but my cat has always been good company,” Huang said.

“Moreover, cats are more independent. I don’t have to walk my cat every day, but I play with him whenever I find some spare time.”

That is important for most young people struggling to find work-life balance in urban areas due to hectic lifestyles.

According to a report from Frost & Sullivan China, keeping cats for pets costs a little less than maintaining dogs.

To increase financial support for small and micro firms, the country also vows to strengthen control and su

pervision of counter-cyclical adjustment, urge banks to provide better loan services, and improve the financial service enviro

nd during the peak consumption period in winter, according to Zhang Mingsen, former deputy chief engineer of the Beijing Research Institute of Che

ical Industry under the State-owned oil giant China Petroleum and Chemical Corp.

The government should provide fiscal and tax subsidies for the construction of underground gas stor

age facilities and improve the pricing mechanism for natural gas to achieve a more open gas market system, said Zhang in his sug

gestions to the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

China consumed 280.30 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2018, u

p 18.1 percent year-on-year, according to the National Development and Reform Commissi

on, the nation’s top economic regulator. The increase is in line with the country’s aim to encourage the use of gas instead of coal to combat air pollution.

We are the first Chinese dairy maker to sell products abroa

and we will introduce more products tailored to the preferences of local consumers. In Indonesia, the penetration rate of yogurt is low and there are not many brands available, so there is a huge market potential,” Yu said.

There haven’t been too many that are bigger emergenc

  than what we have” at our border, he said.Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials fr

om Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones

killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.

  While some lawmakers — including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency power

s in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter

to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.

  ”The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concern

ing the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal

basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which larg

ely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

The President’s emergency Proclamation reasonably descr

  ribed the current situation as an ongoing ‘border security and humanitarian crisis,'” Boyd adds. “The cris

is at the border … may qualify as an emergency even though it, too, is not entirely new.”

  Twelve Republican senators banded together Thursday to deliver the f

orceful rebuke after expressing concerns that Trump’s use of the national emergency decla

ration as an end-run around Congress violates the separation of powers and sets a bad precedent that a woul

d-be future Democratic president could follow to unilaterally drive their agenda.

  The White House sought to pare back Republican defections leading up to the vote, with the President and White House aides

making clear to Republican senators that a vote against Trump on this issue would have ramifications come re-election time.

  Trump rejected entreaties from several Senate Republicans t

o agree to a compromise that would curtail his national emergency powers and instead fra

med the vote not as a matter of constitutional concerns, but rather as a litmus test on border security.
