“But one drawback is that we are yet to find a good market.”

As for the future prospects, Luo says: “To be honest, o

Earlier this week, Guaido named Saturday as the deadline for the aid to cross the border.
But the United States announced Friday preparations to bring aid in through another route.
”The US and its partners began pre-positioning additional hu
manitarian aid for Venezuelans in Boa Vista, Brazil,” the US State Department tweeted.
The aid consists of food kits “containing rice, beans, sugar, and salt to feed nearly 3,500 people f

British billionaire Richard Branson sponsored a Live Aid-inspired show Friday in Cucuta, Colombia, featuring Latin
American stars such as Colombian musical legends Carlos Vives and Juanes, and reggaeton singer Maluma. Co

Swedish DJ Alesso is also on the lineup, alongside Mexican rock band Mana, who
have won seven Latin Grammys and four Grammys, and Spanish singer and songwriter Alejandro Sanz.
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who invoked a constitutional provision last month to declare himself acting pres

The Venezuelan government has used containers to barricade the Tienditas Bridge and prevent aid from entering.
Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, told CNN en Espanol Thursday that he was asked to do the concert by Guaido.

The four models, which are available for pre-order on Thursday and hit starts on March 8, start at 128GB and go up in cost depending on s

Of course, the 5G network is still in its infancy, which could limit the new device’s true potential.
”Some carriers have aggressive launch dates, but full-scale co
verage, like we currently have with 4G, is years away,” Ben Stan

hers fill that 70 million-year gap, as well as provide a portrait of tyrannosaur lineage in North America. Moros links the earliest, smaller tyrannosaurs to Tyrannosaurus rex.
”With a lethal combination of bone-crunching bite forces, stereoscopic vision, rapid growth rates, and colossal size, tyrant dinosa
urs reigned uncontested for 15 million years leading up to the end-Cretaceous extinction — but it wasn’
t always that way,” said Lindsay Zanno, lead study author and paleontologist at North Carolina State Un
iversity, in a statement. “When and how quickly tyrannosaurs went from wallflower to prom king has been vexing pal
eontologists for a long time. The only way to attack this problem was to get out there and find more data on these rare animals.”
Zanno and her team spent a decade searching for fossils from the Late Cretaceous period. Th
ey recovered teeth and a hind limb consisting of a femur, a tibia and parts of a foot belonging to Mo
ros in the same area where Zanno found the fossil of a giant carnivorous carcharodontosaur.
But Moros stood between 3 and 4 feet tall. The dinosaur they found was 7 years old when it died, a nearly full-grown adult
that would have weighed around 172 pounds. The elongated leg and foot bones indicated that it would be a great runner.

”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “
These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida
