WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon softened his stance on bitcoin and regretted calling the digital currency a fraud.

In an interview with Fox Business on Tuesday, Dimon said he regretted making his earlier comments on the cryptocurrency.

The head of the biggest U.S. bank called bitcoin "a fraud" last September and said the digital currency "won't end well."

He also said last year that he would not allow JP Morgan traders to trade bitcoin Mens Air Presto QS Grey Australia Outlet , noting that "it's against our rules and they are stupid."

Bitcoin was trading around 4,200 U.S. dollars when Dimon made the comments. Since then, the price of the digital currency has skyrocketed. Bitcoin traded above 14,000 dollars on Tuesday.

Dimon said he personally is "not interested in the subject at all." But he said blockchain, the open-ledger technology that underpins bitcoins, is real.


BEIJING 2017 Women's Men's Air Max Flair All White Australia Sale , Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- China's major retail sales enterprises enjoyed strong sales last year as the country's stabilizing economy spurred consumption, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said on Thursday.

The total sales volume of 2,700 major retail enterprises surveyed rose 4.6 percent year on year in 2017, up 3 percentage points from a year earlier, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a press briefing.

Sales volume through e-commerce last year surged 26.8 percent year on year, up 3.2 percentage points from 2016 Sale 2017 Women's Air Max Flair Pink Australia , said Gao.

Profitability of retail enterprises improved in 2017 with operating profits of surveyed enterprises rising 8 percent year on year, up 6.5 percentage points from 2016.

Booming retail sales are behind China's stabilizing economy, which grew 6.9 percent in the first three quarters of 2017.

China is trying to shift its economy toward a growth model driven more by consumer spending, innovation and services while weaning it off over-reliance on exports and investment.

Gao predicted retail enterprises will see a booming year in 2018, supported by continued industry restructuring and upgrades as well as technological innovation.


LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- With the help of the HubbleSpace Telescope NikeLab Air VaporMax Flyknit Betrue 2017 Blue Australia Sale , an international research team has observed anunusual pair of space rocks in the asteroid belt between Mars andJupiter. This binary asteroid, labled 2006 VW139288P, is the firstknown binary asteroid also classified as a comet.

According to the research, published this week in the journalNature, the two asteroids, collectively called 288P Women's Air VaporMax Rose Red Silver Australia , orbiting eachother and showing also comet-like features, including a bright haloof material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust.

Using the Hubble Space Telescope, a project of internationalcooperation between the U.S. National Aeronautics and SpaceAdministration (NASA) and European Space Agency (ESA), astronomersobserved the asteroid pair last September just before it made itsclosest approach to the sun.

The images of the asteroid 288P revealed that it was actuallynot a single object Men's Air Vapormax Collegiate Navy Black Australia Sale , but two asteroids of almost the same mass andsize, orbiting each other at a distance of about 100 kilometres.The German-led group concluded that 288P has existed as a binarysystem for only about 5,000 years.

"The most probable formation scenario of 288P is a breakup dueto fast rotation. After that, the two fragments may have been movedfurther apart by sublimation torques," Jessica Agarwal, lead authorof the paper elaborated on the formation scenario in a pressrelease.

Understanding the origin and evolution of main-belt comets Men's Air VaporMax Pure Platinum White Australia Outlet ,asteroids orbiting between Mars and Jupiter that show comet-likeactivity, is a crucial element in our understanding of theformation and evolution of the whole solar system, the scientistssaid in a statement.

The binary asteroids' strange characteristics raises somequestions about whether it is not just a coincidence that itpresents such unique properties.

"We need more theoretical and observational work, as well asmore objects similar to 288P, to find an answer to this question,"concludes Agarwal. Enditem
