In the Antarctic, there are no artificial facilities to pre

event wild animals from being touched by tourists. In such conditions, education on wildlife protection before the tour will be needed,” he said.

“Also, we can further explain contributions travelers can make through a

nimal-friendly tourism during the trip, which will make the tour much more meaningful and unforgettable.”

Apart from travel agencies, online tourism information platforms are also contributing efforts to promote wildlife-frien

dly tours. Qyer.com-a Chinese website that enables travel enthusiasts to write notes and exchange experiences, has

recently added a new item of “not chasing tigers in the national parks” into their travel guidebook for India.

“Wildlife protection needs efforts from each one of us and we will keep updating such informa

tion, encouraging more travelers to join our efforts,” said Lin Yi, manager of Qyer’s offline business department.

The phone call took place days after the US Commerce Dep

artment announced on Wednesday it will add telecommunications eq

uipment maker Huawei and its affiliates to the Entity List on Wednesday. Being on the list

bars the company from buying US technology without government approval due to security concerns.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bars US companies fr

om using telecom equipment from manufacturers considered a national security risk, without mentioning Huawei by name.

Such moves, as well as the increase of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods earlier this m

onth, complicated the prospect of continuing the bilateral trade talks that have been ongoing for more than a year.

China has always believed in and hoped to solve trade differences thr

died and 24 were injured in a fire in Guilin, the Guangxi Zh

According to a news release from the local fire department, the battery of an electric bicycle parked beside a building for s

tudents ignited, starting the fire. The incident is still being investigated and some people have been detained.

This is not the first fatal fire caused by an electric bicycle. In December 2017, five people were killed and nine injured when an electric bike started a fire in Beijing, and

in July last year, one person was killed and another injured in Wuxi, Jiangsu province. In fact, type “electric bicy

cle” and “fire” into any online searching engine and you will get hundreds of pages recording them.

How could that happen?

The all-too fast expansion of the industry is to bla

me. There are already 300 million electric bicycles in China, roughly one for every four persons.

However, when it comes to charging the bikes, a big proble

A few lucky ones managed to jump outside the net, whil

When the flurry subsided, Berry began to pull the net up and pick carp from it one by one.

Repeating this process one or two times, they had enough carp to deliver to the nearby Kentucky Fish Center owned by An

gie Yu, who also operates Two Rivers Fisheries, the largest Asian carp processor and exporter in the United States.

Berry and Irwin, half-brothers originally from Washington, came to Kentucky to fish for Asian carp in November.

Irwin is a commercial fisherman who has worked all over the world, most recently in Ala

ska during the summer. For three months, he worked 20 – to 22-hour days in Alaskan wate

rs. The pay was good enough to cover a year’s worth of living expenses, but the work was extremely hard.

One day, Irwin read an internet article about Asian carp and commercial fishing in Kentucky, and immediately became interested.

s landmarks of the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 Beijing China, the China Pavilion and the Intern

ational Pavilion are attracting large numbers of visitors thanks to their unique designs and functions.

Covering an area of 5 square kilometers, the expo is being held in the capital’s Yanqing district.

Following the ancient wisdom of the Chinese people, the China Pavilion takes the sh

ape of a green building that can “breathe” and has “life”, as described on the exhibition’s official website.

Core portions of the pavilion are composed of terraced fi

elds. Functions of both irrigation and insulation are at play, and

the fields help reduce energy consumption of the building while also offering heating or cooling functions.

The monkeys implanted with human genes developed bett

better short-term memory and faster reaction times compared with the control group, acco

rding findings published March 27 in the China-based journal National Science Review.

The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.

The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth

ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.

The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.

In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza

tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every

step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

Crude steel production capacity in Hebei, Tianjin to be

Crude steel production capacity in Hebei province and Tianjin will be capped at 200 million metric tons

and 15 million tons by 2020, as part of China’s efforts to optimize the iron and steel industry, a senior government official said.

“There is too much capacity in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and

the surrounding areas, as well as the Yangtze River Delta region,” said Lyu Guixin, an ins

pector with the raw material department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

“The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region takes up only 2.2 percent of

China’s territory, but accounts for 25 percent of the nation’s crude steel output.”

Although official figures from the Chinese authorities are not av

ailable, Zeng Jiesheng, chief analyst with steel e-commerce platform Ouyeel.com, told Chi

nese media earlier that the iron and steel capacity of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region stood at about 280 million tons.

While there does appear to be some parallels between the

  start of the Arab Spring and the recent Algerian marches, experts are wary of drawing comparisons.

  McInerney says these protests feel very reminiscent of what was witnessed in Tunisia in Janua

ry 2011. He adds that similar protests erupted in Algeria at the same time but were quickly and violently quashed.

  ”In the past, the default position [for the regime] has been to crackdown on protests … The nature of these protests, they’ve chos

en not to do that. They’ve been more careful and thoughtful and strategic in how they respond,” he says.

  McInerney says there are some concerns the regime will try to trigger violent cl

ashes, perhaps by sending pro-regime thugs into the protests to create violence as a pretext for a crackdown.

  For now, protesters seem intent on continuing their calls for Bouteflika to withdraw and planning further peaceful marches.

  ”If the determination continues and if the protesters keep their demands clear … and i

f they remain peaceful, this might transform into a big social movement,” Carnegie research scholar Gha

nem says, adding that countries across the Mediterranean will be closely watching how events unfold.

Li stressed that autonomous driving, as a rising, cuttin

edge technology, is of great importance to China in terms of safety, efficiency, services and the development of industries.

“China is paying great attention to the development of this technology. Our principle is

to encourage trials, allow failures, ensure safety and oppose monopolies,” he said.

Autonomous driving, although a new concept, has been embraced by many people. A survey re

leased in November 2017 by JD Power, a global marketing information services company based in the

United States, found that almost 80 percent of Chinese consumers welcomed autonomous driving, although they might hav

e concerns about the safety of the technology and the lack of related laws and regulations.

To root out people’s concerns and ensure better development, the Ministry of Transport c

reated China’s first regulations for road testing for autonomous vehicles in April, jointly with

the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Li said.

In July, the Ministry of Transport released guidance on how to build safe closed test sites for autonomous driving.
