With the federation’s support, these women have also lear

learned to sell their work online.

Meanwhile, Lyu registered an online store on Taobao in 2016 and says she has since earned 50,000 yuan.

Speaking about the efforts, Luo Shumei, the president of the Wo

men’s Federation of Changdao village, Xihe county, says: “It’s a good thing to see embroidery pro

duction in Xihe county is shifting from being scattered to being more organized.

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

Separately, in 2016, the Xihe Culture, Radio and

Broadcasting Administration designated Luo, now 32, as a Xihe Qiqiao culture “inheritor”.

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

ur production is at a bit of a standstill now because we don’t know when the next order will come in.

“And we are reluctant to produce en masse beca

use of the risk of overstocking. But when an order does come in, we’ll work very hard.

Such services provided by Hong Kong and Macao arbitrato

y Hong Kong and Macao arbitrators will increase our confidence in business investmen

t in the area,” according to a senior human resources manager surnamed Zheng with Luk Fook Holdings.

The Hong Kong-based jewelry company invested in a factory in Nansha 15 years ago.

“Because of the differences in legal and company structures between Hong K

ong and the mainland, a growing number of Hong Kong-and Macao-invested co

mpanies in Nansha have been experiencing turbulence in labor management,” Zheng said.

Companies from Hong Kong and Macao have increased their investment in Nansha in recent years, with the number of bu

sinesses invested from the two SARs more than doubling in 2018 from the previous year, according to sources at the court.

So, while the governments of China and the US may

exhibit discomfort with one another, it is clear that person-to-person education and research diplomacy will continue to provide a

solid foundation for sustaining win-win academic projects. Any significant decoupling of the US and Chi

na in the education and research fields would prove detrimental to both countries.

In the globalized world of the 21st century, where international kn

owledge networks and crossborder collaborations have become the new norm, the US and C

hina should be seeking to build more bridges, not dismantling them.

The United States has so far delivered batches of relief su

  lies to a border town in Colombia, including food and hygiene kits, ready-to-use supplementary foods and high-energy biscuits

. It’s pledged $20 million to help Venezuela, and other countries including Canada, the UK and Germany have chipped in, too.

  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

or 10 days and additional rice to feed an estimated 6,100 people for one month,” a fact sheet from the State Department says.

  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

lombian President Ivan Duque, Chile’s Sebastian Piñera and Mario Abdo of Paraguay also joined the crowds.

The event will feature performances from more than

  artists, according to the concert’s website. These include huge names in Latin America, like Colombian musical legends Carl

os Vives, Juanes and reggaetón singer Maluma — all three of whom have collaborated with pop-star Shakira in the past.

  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

ident, has been working with a raft of global partners, including the United States, to bring aid into the co

untry. Maduro has repeatedly refused assistance, leaving aid languishing on the border despite growing shortages.

  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.

Samsung said the cameras’ software on all the newphones is abl

  to faster identify what’s in the shot and make suggestions for better framing.

  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

torage size. The devices come in four colors in the US: black, white, blue and a pink inspired by t

he Pantone color of the year (Living Coral). More colors will be available globally.The S10 5G mod

el is the first mainstream device to run on lightning-fast 5G wireless networks later this year. The move could give Samsung a sig

nificant head start in early 5G markets, such as part of the US, South Korea and China, and pit itself as an inn

ovation leader. Apple isn’t expected to have a 5G iPhone until the final quarter of 2020.

  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

ton at Canalys told CNN Business. “Cellular waves needed for 5G do not travel as far as with 4G and 3G, an

d it will take time for carriers to build a sufficiently dense network of infrastructure.”

An S10 owner must approve sharing battery life with som

  eone else — so you can’t sneakily leave your phone on top of a stranger’s device at a bar — and it’ll autom

atically stop when the host smartphone drops below a 30% charge. An S10 will even charge iPh

ones and other non-Samsung models — a generous feature that’s hard to imagine Apple ever rolling out.

  The company also announced wireless Samsung Galaxy buds ($128) that can be charged when placed on top of a Galaxy 10S displ

ay. (Consumers who pre-order any of the smartphones will get the buds for free).Considering what most sm

artphone users want is a better camera and longer-battery life, the updated Galaxy S line appears to check th

ose boxes and more. Although it’s unclear how the S10 5G will sell, experts argue it’s a necessary step toward the future.

  Samsung unveiled two new smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch

Active ($199) and Galaxy Fit ($99). The water resistant Active smartwatch can monitor blood press

ure, features a breathing app to help with stress and touts sleep tracking. The Fit is a stripped down version of the A

ctive in the form of a traditional fitness tracker. It can monitor heart rate, steps and can go an entire week on one charge.

So what happened in between? Moros is helping researc

  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.

  Giant dinosaur footprints found and saved from floods in Queensland

  ”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “

These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida

ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”

Pelosi urges members to back resolution terminating

  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged members of Congress on Wednesday to bac

k a resolution halting the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump to fund a border wall.

  Pelosi’s call to action comes as the White House plows ahead on transferring federal funds not contingent on Trump’s declara

tion toward building a wall along the southern border, despite already facing several lawsuits.

  ”I write to invite all Members of Congress to cosponsor Congressman Joaquin Castro’s priv

ileged resolution … to terminate this emergency declaration using the termination mechanism within the

National Emergencies Act,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to her colleagues.

  ”All Members take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi added. “The P

resident’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the const

itutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated. We have a solemn responsibility to up

hold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.”

Under the guideline, released by the Central Committee of

the Communist Party of China and the State Council, China’s cabinet, Chinese authorities will consolidate the produc

tion capacity of such products as edible-oil crops and cotton through improving quality and efficiency.

The nation will also improve the subsidy policy for soybean and corn producers this year, while also

scaling up imports of agricultural products in shortage and diversifying import channels, the g

uideline read. China will also cultivate a group of multinational agricultural enterprises.

Jiao Shanwei, editor-in-chief of grain portal cngrain.com in Central China’s Henan Province, told the Global Times that the guide

line, which is issued at the beginning of each year and widely interpreted as laying a policy framework for

China’s agricultural industry, sends a clear signal to the market that China will take measures such as importing from alte

rnative sources like Russia and Brazil as well as encouraging domestic cultivation, to be less reliant on US soybean imports this year.
