The Galaxy Fold, which will be available in black, silver

  green and blue, supports three apps at one time: You can watch Netflix, Google something and answer text messages at the same time.

  Consumers who flock to big screens, whether for gaming or the a

bility to see more of their data in one place, may be attracted to the unique concept. Samsung has a

lready proven that there’s interest around larger-screen smartphones with the success of its Galaxy Note line.

  But Samsung will need to convince developers to design apps for the unique form factor, and cons

umer demand out of the gate might not be enough to encourage this considering the price point.

  The Galaxy S10 lineup

  Samsung is back with updated versions of its best selling Galaxy S smartphone, too. Its

next-generation flagship device comes in four options: the 5.8-inch S10e ($749); the 6.1-inch Galaxy S1

0 ($899); the 6.4-inch S10+ ($999); and the 6.4-inch S10 5G (pricing has yet to be announced).

  The Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10 5G devices feature a new curved, qua

d HD+ AMOLED display, which the company says whips up crisper and more vibrant col

ors and reduces blue light exposure to help reduce eye strain. (The lower-end S10e touts a full HD+ flat screen).

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.

  ”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.”

They now work with over 100 different suppliers from across

  the country, sourcing the best of the best for everything from game meats to that addictive Irish b

utter. “The idea there was to get the best produce that we can within Ireland,” says Heery.Spread acr

oss the sprawling property are four different restaurants, each catering to a specific mood or type of guest.

  The Oak Room is Adare’s fine-dining option, housed inside a stunningly renovated oak-pa

neled dining room. Local artists were even commissioned to design bespoke wood and ceramic plates a

nd serving pieces, with some of the material coming from the hotel’s own woodlands.

  A six-course, prix-fixe menu with wine pairing will set guests back €250 (ab

out $283) per person. The meal includes elevated takes on traditional Irish fare like

Tipperary quail with salsify and bacon, or 24-hour-cooked Dexter beef with truffles and morel mushrooms. A

nd, of course, service is top notch.For those looking for a more traditional experience, the hotel’s Gallery serves a p

roper Irish afternoon tea that will upend all expectations (and probably ruin you for any version thereafter).

  Guests are treated to a selection of four petite sandwiches, including local salmon and ham; freshly baked scones with

clotted cream; and five different desserts like a tiramisu “shot” filled with coffee jelly and mascarpone mousse.

  The room itself is also mighty impressive: based on the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles

it’s 132 feet long with gargantuan marble fireplaces and walls decorated with hand-carved Bible scenes.

Structural reform on the supply side and the macro adjustment to the demand-side can be done at the same time.

While we must push forward with reforms continuously, whenever there are econom

ic fluctuations, it is still necessary to take some macro-control measures.

That’s what developed countries and market-economy countries have done to stabilize their economies over the years.

We can’t hold back some necessary adjustment me

asures on the demand side just because supply-side reform fails to see results. We need action on both sides.

When we discuss reforms, don’t forget that if the reform isn’t rolled out amid a stable develop

ment environment and the economy doesn’t move at a stable growth level, it will be hard to advance many reforms.

Russia trade hits record $100 billion with m

Bilateral trade between China and Russia last year exceeded $100 billion as of mid-December, a new record, official figures sh

owed Thursday, and an analyst forecast further increases in high-technology trade and e-commerce this year.

Bilateral trade grew 27.8 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018 to $97.24 billion,

Gao Feng, spokesperson of China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), told a press conference on Thursday.

Projects that China and Russia have been cooperating on include nuclear power and other energy sectors, as well as the aviation industry, Gao said.

China remains Russia’s largest trading partner. In the first 11 months of last year, bilateral trade in electronic pro

ducts and the high-technology sector increased 15 percent and 29 percent, respectively, according to MOFCOM.

Trade in agricultural products increased by 31 percent, Gao said.

Cooperation involving strategic large projects achieved remarkable results. Eme

rging fields such as nuclear energy and aerospace have also increased rapidly, Gao noted.

hina releases grand plan for the Guangdong-HoKong

China on Monday released a grand plan for the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, aiming to build a global economic and te

chnological powerhouse in the country’s south region that could be on par with bay areas in New York and San Francisco.

The development plan for the Greater Bay Area, which was released by the State Council, China’s cabinet, outlined China’s eff

orts to build an open community for coordinated innovation in the region, develop quality innovation and t

echnology carriers and platforms, and enhance the environment for innovation in the region.

The Greater Bay Area, which spans nine cities in South China’s Guangdong Province as well as H

ong Kong and Macao, the two special administrative regions, with a total GDP of $1.5 trillion i

n 2017, will become a new frontier for China’s fresh round of reform and opening-up, experts said.

Chen Xinxin, a research fellow at the Institute of Law of the Chinese

Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Monday that the development t

imetable for the area as shown in the guideline, an important outline document guiding the current and future co

operation and development of the Greater Bay Area, is in line with the nation’s economic and technological development.

Financial Times said that the UK National Cyber Security Centre

had determined that there are ways to limit the risks of using Huawei in future 5G ultra-fast networks, citing officials familiar with the matter.

Such a decision dealt “a serious blow to US efforts to persuade allies to ban the Chinese supplier from high-speed telecommunications systems,” the report said.

One person familiar with the debate said the British conclusion would “carry great weight” with European leaders, since the UK

has access to sensitive US intelligence through its membership in the Five Eyes intelligence sharing network, the FT reported.

Zhang said that the UK had been concerned about the risks of usi

ng Huawei because of warnings from the US. But Huawei products are inexpensive a

nd qualified that they could not refuse, which was why they proposed schemes to test Huawei equipment.

Zhang hailed the system and the UK’s conclusion as “significantly pragmatic, and will set an example for other European countries.”

Cui Hongjian, director of the Department of European Studies at the China Institute of Interna

tional Studies, told the Global Times on Monday that it was not in European countries’ interests to blin

dly follow the US, which was confusing security with the market to crack down on Huawei.

But Myanmar still has some obstacles to deal with in order

attract foreign capital. The first is instability in the job market and relatively low labor efficiency. Particularly, the recent years have seen an increasing number of strikes and the failure of the g

overnment to ease industrial relations conflicts with effective measures has crippled investor confidence in the country. Some foreign ent

erprises even withdrew from Myanmar and shifted to neighboring countries, denting the image of the nation.

Second, Myanmar’s backward infrastructure may deter potential investors. A small nu

mber of power generation facilities and fragmented grids cannot ensure stable and sufficient po

wer supply. Access to electricity is limited to only 26 percent of the population, impeding Myanmar’s economic development.

Third, some Myanmese are prejudiced against foreign investment. Worrying that Myanmar’s eco

nomic and social interests may be impaired, they turned their backs on foreign investment. Demonstrators r

allied in Kachin State to demand the government permanently halt the Myitsone dam project, without giving any constructive suggestion on the fo

llow-up arrangements. It’s fair to say some movements against foreign-invested projects, driven by nationalism an

d so-called environmental concern, are of no help in improving the country’s investment environment, and have hijacked economic development. Re

specting the spirit of the contract is a basic requirement for modern states and their people. Myanmar State Councilor Aun

g San Suu Kyi recently said an administration shouldn’t terminate foreign-invested projects approved by its predecessor.

As the West steps up its criticism of Myanmar over the Rohin

Rakhine issues, the country’s relations with the West have deteriorated. China is one of the few powers

Myanmar can rely on. There is vast cooperation potential between the two countries. China and Myanmar can a

dvance industrial cooperation under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, the China-M

yanmar Economic Corridor and the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor. How to unleash M

yanmar’s huge development potential with the help of China should be placed on the NLD government’s planning agenda.

As Myanmar’s largest neighbor, China will continue to play an active role in promoting Myanmar’s nat

ional reconciliation and addressing the Rakhine issue as well as build mechanism for talks. It will assist My

anmar as much as it can. When investing in Myanmar, Chinese ente-invested projects, driven by nationalism an

d so-called environmental concern, are of no help in improving the country’s investment environment, and have hijacked economic development. Res

pecting the spirit of the contract is a basic requirement for modern states and their peoplrprises should pay attention to th

eir social responsibility. They should also address local people’s suspicions and misunderstandings on Chinese-inve

sted projects. We have reasons to believe that the prospect for China-Myanmar cooperation under the Belt and Road framework is promising.

It was after his retirement that Li’s influence reached the

pinnacle. Since the end of the 1980s, he had made his voice heard constantly and had been labeled the “CPC veteran cadre + CPC critic.”

As a representative figure among veteran outspoken officials, he was hailed among Chinese liberals and Western public opin

ion. Among his propositions, the most famous was opposing the construction of the Three Gorges Dam.

Looking back on Li’s life, the prime of his life was embedded in the wave of the Chinese Revolu

tion and the country’s early development; he suffered a lot during that period of time.

In his later years, he participated in the creation of a special type of “veteran cadre + critic.” Stronger opinion was not at al

l unusual in those years, but the label of a retired official helped increase the gravity of Li’s voice and consolidated his stance.

Li’s later years were a success from another perspective as well. He had been enjoying a

generous pension and lavish benefits after retirement until he died in Beijing Hospital.

While benefiting from the privileges the state provided, he was also supported by China’s do

mestic anti-establishment forces and some Western powers. He was one of China’s least lonely old men and veteran cadres.

It should be noted that Li in his later years became a symbol of the diversificat

ion of Chinese society. Considering the meaning of this symbol, different conclusions can be drawn.

Supporters may hold that he had added a voice and more importantly a “scarce voice,” while

opponents would argue that he had become a tool for hostile and unfriendly forces to attack the Chinese system.

Li’s later years demonstrated a special way of boycotting China’s mainstream path. Such a role played by him may reflect various value judgments.
