Xuelong left Shanghai on Nov 2 and arrived at Zhongshan Station on
Nov 30. The icebreaker entered the Amundsen Sea in early January for a marine survey but
experienced “the worst sea conditions since departure”, according to an earlier report by China Ocean News.
On Jan 19, the ship was caught in a sudden thick fog on the Amundsen Sea and collided with an
iceberg, Cheng Xiao, dean of the College of Global Change and Earth System Science at Beijing Normal University, told Xinhua.
An increase of cyclones in the area since the start of 2019 has great
ly increased the number of floating ice fragments, while in 2018 the area was a single large ice sheet, Ch
en said. The floating ice drifted to the north, pushed by the wind, which also affected navigation on Xuelong’s trip home, he added.
but also people who are very pro-Meghan, about recessive genes, about whether the baby will have an afro, whether the baby will have its mother’s nose,” she said.
”There’s all these coded conversations happening about what the baby will look like, and it sounds really horr
ible to think, but a lot of people offered up the idea that the blacker the baby looks, the worse its treatment will be.”
Hermansson said the anti-Meghan trolls have also seized on themes like so-called “cultural decline.”
”Meghan Markle fits into this bigger idea of the West and the UK in d
ecline,” he said. “She does that by not fitting in, by being who she is, which is mixed race. Pe
ople tie these things so much to what they think it means to be British, which is white. So, it has a racial element to it.”
”But there’s also this idea of cultural decline — [that] what we were before, a strong palace, a monarchy, an empire … is falli
ng apart, and that of course is brought on by these other far-right conspiratorial ideas, like what mass imm
igration is doing with our society, the replacement of British people of British culture.”
Another British member of parliament has quit the opposition Labour Party, in the wake of se
ven lawmakers splitting to form the Independent Group in Parliament earlier this week.
Those lawmakers cited disagreements over Brexit with Labour’s left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn, an
d concerns over alleged anti-semitism within the party as their reasons for leaving the party.
on Tuesday, Joan Ryan, MP for the London constituency of Enfield North and chair of the Labour Friends of Israel, tweete
d that she was leaving the party because it had in her view “become infected with the scourge of anti-Jewish racism.”
In a strongly worded resignation letter, she blamed Corbyn for the current situatio
n and said she could not “in good conscience support or represent a party which adopts such an attitude.”
After 4 decades, I have made the terribly difficult decision to resign from the Labour Party. It is the
greatest honour of my life to represent the people of #Enfiel
dNorth. I will continue to represent and speak up for them as a member of the @TheIndGroup of MPs #ChangePolitics

rding to the Times, the motion pointed to her constant criticisms of Corbyn, saying Ryan had “fueled and indee
d inflamed trial by media of the Labour leader.” Ryan, the motion said, behaved like “an independent MP in all but name.”
