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.

“Apart from being able to increase their incomes, what is noticeable is that the women finally have a say in their family decisions now,” says Zhang.

“Earlier, they used to feel that they needed to ask their husbands even if they just w

anted to buy a 10-yuan sweater. But now, they feel free to make their own choices.”

In 2016, the China Women’s Federation designated Xihe county as the model base for alle

viating poverty and began to offer financial support to the likes of Qiqiao Workshop.

One of the beneficiaries was Lyu Xiaohong, the founder of the Baoji Embroidery Culture Company.

The federation encourages poor households to become shareholders by allocating each

of them an equity of 5,000 yuan. At the same time, Lyu’s company signed an agreement with the hou

seholds, promising a dividend of not less than 1,000 yuan by the end of each year. Now, 36 poor households in the v

illage, more than half of such households there, have decided to join the company.

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.

As the aid delivery deadline approaches, the spotlight

  Maduro staged a rival concert a few hundred meters away on the Venezuelan side of the bridge in Tachira.

  The beleaguered President, who is facing growing calls to step down, denies that a huma

nitarian crisis exists in his country and suggests that aid efforts are part of a US plot to orchestrate a coup.

pear in court Saturday for a bail hearing after his arrest on charges of sexual abuse spanning from 1998 to 2010.

  Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx announced Friday that the R&B musician, whose full name is Robert Kelly, wa

s indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse — a class two felony — involving four alleged victims.

  The indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three children older than 13 but younger than 17. There is no age ran

ge listed for one of the alleged victims. The charges say Kelly used force or the threat of force.

This tape leaves no question as to whether R. Kelly is gui

  multiple sexual, illegal acts against a 14-year-old girl,” he told reporters Friday. He said Foxx’s investigation was “very thorough … dedicated and methodical.”

  CNN has seen the VHS tape, which is 42 minutes and 45 seconds, clear and explicit

. It appears to show Kelly having sex with a girl who refers to her body parts as 14 years old.

  In a news conference Friday, his attorney told reporters he did not know what was

on the tape.Greenberg brought a point of contention to one of the cases in the indictment.

  ”One of the charges appears to involve the same alleged victim from the earlier case and double jeopardy should bar that case,” he said.

  Kelly has been associated with accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropr

iate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades. He has strongly denied the accusations.

  What is on the latest video mirrors some of the alleged acts for which Kelly was arrest

ed in a child pornography case in 2002 when he was 35 and then acquitted six years later.

  He has been sued by multiple women accusing him of having sex with them when they w

ere underage. Most cases, with the exception of the trial where he was acquitted, have been settled out of court.

NYPD hate crimes task force investigating Nazi drawings

  The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating Nazi drawings found Friday morning at an elementary school in Queens, Detective George Tourovakas told CNN.

  Dozens of swastikas, a Nazi eagle and the words “Hail Hitler” (sic) were found drawn in chalk on the pavement of PS 139’s schoolyard.

  Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, who represents the district, told CNN her office received photographs from a resident in the apartment building next to t

he school and immediately informed the police. According to Koslowitz, the area is a predominately Jewish neighborhood.

  I am horrified, disgusted, and nauseated, to say the least, of what I have witnessed today. Naz

i imagery and anti-Semitic slurs were drawn at the PS 139 Playground in Rego Park. I was on the sce

ne today and most of the imagery has been washed away. Enough is enough! pic.twitter.com/vteXmlqQyk

  ”This was exceptionally scary today,” Koslowitz said, describing the images as “horrible, just horrible.”

  Koslowitz told CNN she heard stories from her mother, who came from Poland, about anti-Semitic incidents in Europe in the

last century. Koslowitz, who grew up in New York, said she never believed an act of this nature could occur in the city.

  ”This really just has to stop,” she said. “There’s no question about it being a hate crime.”

  There have been 36 anti-Semitic crimes reported in the city so this year, compared

with 21 for the same time last year, according to a New York Times report, which cited police.

The next year, Trump nominated Craft to be ambassador

  In the 2016 presidential race, they initially backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to be the Rep

ublican nominee for president before switching their allegiance to Trump.

  The next year, Trump nominated Craft to be ambassador to Canada, a position she officially assumed in October 2017.

  Shortly after arriving in Ottawa, Craft earned some ridicule for telling the CBC she

understood “both sides” of the debate on climate change. Both, she said, “have the

ir own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science.”

  Craft is likely to encounter some wariness. Trump and his senior staff have made their

dislike for the United Nations clear, earning the distrust of many at the institution and at times, their mo

ckery. The President has referred to the world body as “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good ti

me” and repeatedly attacked the institution’s core principle of multilateralism.

When Feinstein tries to conclude the meeting, a woman says

  the children “have decades of life that they hope to still have, and your leadership is so be

autifully, beautifully possible,” the senator replies, “That doesn’t work with me, thank you.”

  A woman urges the children to read the letter aloud.

  Once most of the children exit, several women stay and calmly chat with Feinstein. One of them says voting to support the deal is important even thou

gh it “isn’t something that’s aimed at passing right now” and the 16-year-old inquires about internship opportunities in F

einstein’s office.Even if everything goes according to plan, it will likely be months before construction on President D

onald Trump’s sought-after border wall can even start, according to senior defense officials.

  Trump recently declared a national emergency on the southern border, a move that in theory will allow his admini

stration to tap and repurpose more than $3 billion in military construction funds to build sections of the wall.

  The declaration has been challenged by several states and some members of Congress.

  Trump also said that his administration would use the Pentagon’s counter drug fund to build sections of the wall.

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.

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup: Foldable phones, 5G and

  A 5G device. A foldable phone that morphs into a tablet. A smartphone that can charge another smartphone when sandwiched together.

  Samsung is making bold moves with its new lineup of Galaxy S10 smartph

ones, which were announced Wednesday at its “Unpacked” press event in San Francisco.

  Following a year of slower sales growth — due largely to the S

9 models not being different enough from its successful Galaxy S8 products — the co

mpany hopes a handful of innovative features will inspire consumers to trade in existing devices for newer models.

  The Galaxy Fold

  Samsung kicked off its event with the debut of the Galaxy Fold, a 4.6 inch-smartphone that

can open up into a 7.3-inch tablet. Along with Samsung’s long teased Infinity Flex display, it has a hinge sy

stem that can’t be seen from the outside. The luxury device, which will cost $1,980, hits stores on April 26.

  ”We are creating a new dimension for your phone and your life,” a Samsung spokesper

son said during the event. “It doesn’t even define a new category; it defies a new category.”
