city produced by compressed hydrogen fed into fuel cells, are important in building a green ene
rgy future, as they are generally considered zero-emission and clean, according to Hu.
Such vehicles have long cruising ranges and can be refueled within three to five minutes.
In addition, the performance of fuel cell vehicles is not greatly affected by the change o
f seasons, he said, referring to winter’s adverse effect on the life of lithium batteries.
In recent years, the company has made moves to advance in the field, as bo
th the central and local governments are eyeing the potential of hydrogen fuel cells to upg
rade the manufacturing industry, and to achieve green and sustainable development.
China had around 1,200 fuel cell vehicles on its roads and fewer than 20 hydr
ogen fuel stations by the end of 2017, ranking behind the United States, Japan, Ge
rmany and South Korea, according to the International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association.
production plant and a hydrogen liquefaction plant started to extend the company’s operations along the value chain, rang
ing from hydrogen production and liquefaction, to hydrogen storage, transport, testing, refueling and applications.
The Baoding Great Wall Holdings Group Co Ltd, the indirect controlling shareholder of Great Wall Motor, said it pla
ns to acquire all the shares of Shanghai Fuel Cell Vehicle Powertrain Co Ltd soon. That would enable Great Wall M
otor to develop and deploy cost-competitive fuel cells for a variety of applications, according to the company.
Great Wall Motor has already established an internationally competitive R&D team of 240 technology experts.
With four R&D centers in Baoding, Shanghai, Munich in Germany and Yokohama in Japan, Hu said that Great Wall
Motor will make full use of world-class professionals to promote the R&D and marketization of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
The company is set to play a leading role in technological innovation in the fuel cell vehicle sector in China, he said.
and ingenuity to gain the power to build their own embroidery brands, thus improving their lives and helping to lift their county out of poverty.
Zhang Qin, 43, a respected embroiderer in the Daliu village of the county who founded the local embroidery associ
ation, Qiqiao Workshop, says: “Women around here are good at needlework, and I’m particularly int
erested in it. When I was a kid, I liked watching and learning as the women were sewing.”
She made her first “bucket of gold” when she was 8, she says.
“I sewed 10 pillowslips and sold them for 4 yuan ($0.6). At the time my family was too poo
r even to buy me new clothes, so I bought a large piece of red cloth and made myself a new undercoat with the money.”
Zhang gradually gained a reputation for her exquisite work, and women in the village often went to her for guidance.
Hof Hotel resounded to bays for Trump’s departure. It wasn’t about him, but his specter hung over it.
Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer of Microsoft and Robert O. Work, deputy secret
ary of defense under President Obama, gave an electrifying insight to Artificial Intelligence.
”AI is everything,” Smith warned, a game changer like electricity. He described the present as a “Sputnik moment.”
The former Defense Department official said the “this is the hardest tech challenge the US has ever faced.”
Both Smith and Work painted a picture of China chasing, catching and passing the US in this key area. They des
cribed AI as an enabler for autocracies like Russia and China and a potential threat for democracies.
In Work’s words, “AI gives tyranny new tools it never had before and makes it more powerful than it has ever been before.”
No one said it in the room, there was a laser like focus on the intellect and experience of these two m
en, but at the back of everyone’s minds must have been thoughts of Trump’s warmth for Presidents Putin and Xi.
Every moment they get cut slack by Trump is more machine code, jacking up their AI prog
rams back home. “We are entering a period intense technological competition,” said Work.
In the next war, he predicted, it will be “our AI against their AI, and the side with the best AI wins.”
But as much as moments like this came as sobering jabs to the solar plexus, MSC 2019 also held out hope of a world after Trump.
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
ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”
