Yusheng Sun: [Foreign Language] Hello, everyone. In the second half of the year, we find ourselves navigating a macro environment filled with uncertainties. This challenging backdrop has created headwinds in our advertising business. However, in these trying times, it's imperative that we remain faithful to our core values and competencies, and at the same time, we must proactively adapt our decision-making process and innovation strategies to quickly respond to the ever-evolving market. We need to clarify our core competency, which is news. We will continue to leverage our advantage in news coverage and create an irreplaceable content quality that sets us apart from others, thus better supporting our content marketing efforts. Next, Edward will provide a more detailed rundown of our operation in the third quarter. Edward, please go ahead.
