哈里梅根宣布“退出王室” | 一周看点








After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.


We intend to step back as senior members of the royal family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen.



It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.


We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.


This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.


We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.
















The company conducted a static-fire test on Saturday (Jan. 4) of a Falcon 9 rocket at Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the company said on Twitter. That rocket is expected to send 60 Starlink internet satellites into space no earlier than Monday (Jan. 6), marking the first launch of the year from Florida’ Space Coast.


The Falcon 9 rocket out of its hangar on Friday (Jan. 3) and went vertical on the launch pad in advance of the planned test-firing of its nine first stage engines on Saturday. The two-stage rocket is scheduled for liftoff Monday at 9:19 p.m. EST (0219 GMT Tuesday).


But before it can launch, SpaceX put the vehicle through a routine launch rehearsal. The brief test, known as a static-fire test, is a standard part of prelaunch procedures and one of the last major milestones before liftoff. During the test, teams loaded the Falcon’s super-chilled propellants - kerosene and liquid oxygen - into the rocket before igniting the first stage’s nine Merlin 1D engines.

















Amid simmering tensions over the governments citizenship laws and student fee increases, videos on social media appeared to show the attackers roaming Jawaharlal Nehru university (JNU) in the capital on Sunday and beating students with sticks, leaving 23 students injured.


Police said the clashes were between rival student groups but opposition politicians blamed the trouble on a student organisation linked to the prime minister, Narendra Modi.


Two groups clashed with each other and some students are injured, a senior Delhi police officer told journalists. The university administration has requested the police to enter (the campus), the officer said, adding, Things are under control right now.
















TikTok’s revenue gains are impressive in more than percentage terms. The popular social application’s in-app revenue is now at a material scale - topping $50 million according to a chart published by Apptopia’s Adam Blacker. And while the company’s year-over-year growth is rapid, its sequential gain from a Q3 in-app top-line figure of around $20 million may be even more eye-popping.


At $50 million a quarter, TikTok could generate hundreds of millions in yearly revenue - enough to go public on its own. And likely enough to provide material assistance to its parent company, ByteDance.


ByteDance, a China-based technology company worth well north of $70 billion, is known for its Toutiao social media service, as well as TikTok. TikTok was formed out of the fusion of Musical.ly, which ByteDance bought in late 2017, and and its own application Douyin. The app is an unquestionable breakout success around the world.
