not adjusted for more than one year, while 54 percent said their salary was cut due to shrinking bonuses.
Nearly 54 percent of those surveyed said they were unable to strike a balance bet
ween family and career due to low salary, according to the survey.
The survey was based on questionnaires completed by 1,064 employees aged 20 and above from Jan 24 to Feb 11.
According to the island’s statistical agency, the real average monthly salary of employees in Taiwan’s industrial and ser
vice sectors was NT$38,235 ($1,243) in 2018, which is below the average monthly salary of NT$38,398 in 2001.
Employees in the telecommunications sector earn the most on the
island, with an average monthly salary of NT$100,791, followed by those working in
the industries of banking, electricity and gas supply and air transport, the agency said.
Trump claimed his administration had achieved “more than almost any administration in the history of the country” — and was met with open laughter.
National security adviser John Bolton, a former ambassador to the UN under President George W. Bush, was openly hosti
le toward the UN during his 2005 to 2006 tenure. The Trump administration has cut US contributions to the UN,
pulled out of several of UN organizations and opposed core UN-backed initiatives in
recent years, including the Paris Agreement on climate and the Iran nuclear deal.
Trump had wanted a woman to lead the US delegation at the United Nations, so
urces have told CNN. His original pick, Nauert, bowed out after it came to light tha
t she had employed a nanny who was legally present in the US, but wasn’t legally permitted to work.
The post, which had been a Cabinet level position under Haley, is widely expected to be downgraded.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had told aides he wanted the post downgra
ded after Haley leaves, an official familiar with his remark has told CNN. And Bolt
on has also been said to want the role downgraded, according to people familiar with his thinking.
The shift means Craft would wield less clout than her predecessor, both at the UN and within the administration, and as a r
esult, would pose nowhere near the challenge to Bolton or Pompeo.

facturers will start to have 5G as a base specification, rather than an additional special variant of their 4G phones, Stanton added.
The 5G model, which is quite large at 6.4 inches due to what Samsung calls a combination of desi
gn reasons, will launch on the major carriers in the second quarter and first be exclusive to Verizon.
”Although volume expectations will be relatively limited initially, having a foothold at the begi
nning of 5G deployment will be important to Samsung’s brand and being part of the 5G j
ourney with the carriers, so it can learn as much as possible about this new technology and make continuous imp
rovements with iterative devices,” Ben Wood, director of research at market data firm CCS Insight.
The new S10 phones learn your habits. For example, it’ll know you often open a
weather app and access Spotify in the morning, and pre-load those apps in the
background to save you on load time. (It’ll close them when you’re done so it doesn’t drain battery power, too).
Samsung says this small touch will extend the battery life to about 24 hours on one charge — and you’ll have so much power remaining, you can share it with friends.
Perhaps that’s the neatest new feature of the entire lineup: the abili
ty to charge another smartphone by placing it on top of any S10 device. It will make wish
you knew someone — anyone! — with one of these smartphones when you’re at 2% battery life and looking for a boost.
hers fill that 70 million-year gap, as well as provide a portrait of tyrannosaur lineage in North America. Moros links the earliest, smaller tyrannosaurs to Tyrannosaurus rex.
”With a lethal combination of bone-crunching bite forces, stereoscopic vision, rapid growth rates, and colossal size, tyrant dinosa
urs reigned uncontested for 15 million years leading up to the end-Cretaceous extinction — but it wasn’
t always that way,” said Lindsay Zanno, lead study author and paleontologist at North Carolina State Un
iversity, in a statement. “When and how quickly tyrannosaurs went from wallflower to prom king has been vexing pal
eontologists for a long time. The only way to attack this problem was to get out there and find more data on these rare animals.”
Zanno and her team spent a decade searching for fossils from the Late Cretaceous period. Th
ey recovered teeth and a hind limb consisting of a femur, a tibia and parts of a foot belonging to Mo
ros in the same area where Zanno found the fossil of a giant carnivorous carcharodontosaur.
But Moros stood between 3 and 4 feet tall. The dinosaur they found was 7 years old when it died, a nearly full-grown adult
that would have weighed around 172 pounds. The elongated leg and foot bones indicated that it would be a great runner.

”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “
These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida
ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”
turday announced its decision to expel Zhai from its post-doctoral station.
The review of Zhai’s admissions materials during the interview and recruiting process was lax, the university said in the statement.
There is no tolerance for academic misconduct which infringes on educational equality. Investigations into the cas
e should not only about one person, but extend to related working procedures, a spokesperson for the Mi
istry of Education said at a routine press conference on Friday in response to Zhai’s scandal.
The scandal broke out two weeks ago and refused to die down after angry net
izens condemned not only the academic fraud but also the damage done by renowned C
hinese universities to fair education opportunities by opening a “backdoor” to the rich and powerful.
The scandal raised alarm bells at BFA, Peking University and all higher education institutions,
which should strengthen regulations over academic management, Chu Zhaohui, a research fel
low at the National Institute of Education Sciences, told the Global Times on Tuesday.
Without giving specific names, Chu said some universities have already started internal investigations and reforms. “Conferral of illegitimately-earned de
grees has a long history in China, and some of the degree holders are in high positions in government or industry,” he said.
