>Real-name tipping required
Online shows and livestreaming platforms should implement real-name management for their online anchors and users, and juveniles as well as those who do not register with their real names are not allowed to give tips to online anchors, according to a notice released on Monday.
The notice, issued by the National Radio and Television Administration, stated online shows and livestreaming platforms should take measures including real-name verification and face recognition to ensure that the real-name management is well-implemented.
The notice also said the platforms should set limits for the maximum tip or reward amounts users could give to anchors each time, day and month. The "reward" function of the users will be suspended if their daily or monthly reward limit is reached.

>Probe's 1st orbital correction
China's lunar probe Chang'e 5 successfully carried out its first orbital correction Tuesday night, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA). The probe conducted the orbital correction at 10:06 pm when its 3000N engine was operational for about two seconds, and then continued its trip to the moon.
Prior to the orbital correction, the lunar probe had traveled for roughly 17 hours in space, and was about 160,000 km away from Earth. All of the probe's systems were in good condition, said the CNSA.
Orbital correction is necessary to ensure the probe follows its theoretical trajectory as closely as possible, said the CNSA.
China launched the lunar probe at 4:30 am Tuesday to collect and return samples from the moon.
It is the country's first attempt to retrieve samples from an extraterrestrial body.

>UK to reduce isolation time
The British government is looking at reducing the time people have to self-isolate if they come into contact with someone with COVID-19 from the current 14 days through the use of a new testing regime, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Monday.
"We're piloting a process, using these new tests that we have, to allow people to take a test every single day instead of having to isolate for that period so that it picks up if you're positive even before you have symptoms," he told Sky News.
He said the scheme was being piloted this week and if successful, would be rolled out among health and social care staff and then in the new year more broadly.
According to The Times, England will introduce a new system on Dec 15 allowing passengers arriving from high-risk countries to take a COVID-19 test after five days of quarantine and to be released from any further self-isolation if they test negative.
