Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, which are powered by electri

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.

The Chinese government has set a goal to have 5,000 such

 vehicles on its roads by 2020, 50,000 by 2025 and 1 million by 2030.

Great Wall Motor’s hydrogen energy technology center in Baoding started operation in the first half of 2018. It is cap

able of manufacturing fuel cell vehicles’ core components, as well as vehicle integration and testing.

The center has the country‘s first 104 MPa high-pressure hydrogen

cycle test laboratory, first liquid-based hydrogen storage and hydrogen refueling station wi

th 70 MPa refueling capability, and first fuel cell vehicle power system testing laboratory.

The first-phase investment of the project involved an investment of about 470 million yuan.

LONDON – Britain’s opposition Labour Party said on Monday it would back calls for a sec

ond referendum on Brexit if parliament rejects its alternative plan for leaving the European Union.

With just over a month until Britain is due to leave the bloc on March 29, Prime Minis

ter Theresa May is seeking changes to her exit deal in order to break an impasse in parliament.

In February 2019, the construction of an electrolysis hydrog

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.

Today, these young women are drawing on their wisdom

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.

Haley on Friday tweeted congratulations to Craft, writing

  Congratulations to Kelly Craft. She’s done a great job representing us as @USAmbCa

nada and we know she’ll be a strong voice for America at the United Nations. #USstrong.”

  CNN reported earlier this week that Craft was being considered, along with US Ambassador to Germany Richard Gr

enell, US Ambassador to France Jamie McCourt and former National Security Council official Dina Powell.

  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement on Friday applauding Trump’s announcement, say

ing he is “very pleased” and that Craft “has been an outstanding advocate for America’s national security and eco

nomic interests in Canada and she is extremely well-qualified to do the same at the United Nations.”

  ”I look forward to her confirmation and continuing to work with her at the United Nations,” Pompeo said in the statement.

  The Kentucky native and her husband, billionaire coal mining executive Joe Craft, have been hea

vyweight Republican funders. In the 2016 presidential race, they initially backed Florida Sen. M

arco Rubio to be the Republican nominee for president before switching their allegiance to Trump.

He got immediate and huge applause, of the type Pence

  can only have wished for.Biden’s antidote to Trump’s two years was to promise change.

  ”And I promise you, I promise you. As my mother would say, ‘this too shall pass.’ We will be back. We will be back. Don’t have any doubt about that.”

  Right on cue more applause fell about him.

  No need to guess whom the Munich crowd would put in the White House given the chance.

  Two years of Trump has had an impact.

  In the hotel this weekend the view is that he is not a safe pair of hands for today’s security challenges.

  At a presentation titled “NATO at 70: An Alliance in Crisis,” two for

mer US representatives to the organization, Douglas Lute and Nicholas Burns, shared insi

ghts from its 55 pages. Those insights were garnered, they said, from 60 past and present ambassadors and cabinet sec

retaries. They concluded that Trump, and his inability to lead, is the biggest of the 10 imminent threats to NATO.

It would be wrong to leave the impression that the Ba

  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.

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.”

Japan Inc poured billions into Britain. Now it’s having regrets

  Japan’s top companies are losing patience with the United Kingdom as Brexit fast approaches.

  Honda (HMC) became the latest to reduce its exposure to the British economy, announcing Tuesday that it will shu

tter its only manufacturing plant in the country by 2021, a move that is expected to result in the loss of at least 3,500 jobs.

  The company denied any link with Brexit but auto industry experts sa

id the uncertainty over future market access and the risk of tariffs must have played a part.

  Honda’s bombshell follows the decision by rival automaker Nissan (NSANF) to sc

rap plans to build a new SUV model in northern England. Electronics firms Sony (SNE) and Pan

asonic (PCRFF) have both said they will move their European legal bases out of the country because of Brexit.

  Japanese executives are fed up after warning for years of the risks inherent in a rupture with Europe.

Even leaving the bloc under the agreement Prime Min

  ster Theresa May has negotiated with the European Union would mean continued uncertainty over future terms of trade.

  More uncertainty is the last thing needed by a car industry that has already been slammed by a

collapse in diesel sales in Europe and dramatically weaker demand in China.

  Japan’s Nissan (NSANF) earlier this month scrapped plans to build its new X-Trail SUV at its fact

ory in the English city of Sunderland. It cited uncertainty over Brexit as one reason for the decision.

  Britain’s biggest car maker, Jaguar Land Rover, announced plans last month to reduce its gl

obal workforce by 4,500. That’s in addition to 1,500 people who left the company last year.

  The company, owned by India’s Tata Motors (TTM), has also warned that crashing out of the

European Union would wipe out more than £1.2 billion ($1.5 billion) of its annual profit.
