fossils representing more than 50 previously undescribed animal species dating back 518 million years.
The soft tissues of their bodies, including muscles, organs, eyes and mouths are still visible in some
of the 4,351 fossils discovered in Yichang, Hubei province, according to a new study published in the journ
al Science on Friday. The excavated fossils represent 109 species, including known jelly fish, arthropods and algae.
Fu Dongjing, associate professor at Northwest University in Xi’an, Shaanxi, also the first author of the paper, said the research g
roup started exploring the ancient ruins in the summer of 2007, in Changyang Tujia autonomous county. It was lo
cated on the bank of Qingjiang River where a representative insect from the Cambrian period was first found.
The new trove of fossils called the Qingjiang biota－the living organisms of a region－ha
ve the potential to greatly inform the understanding of early animal evolution, according to the study.
About 542 million years ago, life on earth diversified at an extremely rapid pace, known as t
he Cambrian explosion. Almost all present animal categories appeared at that time. Many creatures wen
t extinct in the process of evolution, but others became the initial form of future organisms.
year. We must build a presence there.”In the fourth quarter of 2018, Oppo outcompeted Samsung to
become the largest smartphone vendor in Thailand with a market share of 22.2 percent, gro
wing about 70 percent year-on-year, according to the market research company Canalys.
Its products and services are also well received in other South Asian and Sout

In 2018, Oppo shipped 113 million units of smartphones wor
ldwide, garnering a global market share of more than 8 percent, according to IDC data.
Other Chinese smartphone makers, including Huawei, Xiaomi and Vivo, are also looking beyon
d their home turf for growth. In this context, Oppo believes it has an edge over others as it first started its i
nternational journey as early as in 2009 in Thailand, much before others jumped on the going-global bandwagon.
that President Trump ordered Kelly to grant Kushner a top secret security clearance despite con
cerns raised by intelligence officials. The President has denied he had any role in Kushner receiving a clearance.
New York Times: Trump demanded Kushner get top-secret security clearance
The latest revelation also contradicts Ivanka Trump’s denial to ABC News three weeks ag
o, when she said her father had “no involvement” regarding her or Kushner’s clearances.
Several sources told CNN it is feasible that she was unaware of the red flags raised during h
er background check process, as well as the President’s involvement in it. According to a source fam
iliar with her process, she “did not seek, nor have, outside counsel involved in her process as no issues were ever rais
ed.” A separate person added that she was notified by career officials that her clearance had been granted.
Kushner’s clearance was downgraded in February 2018 after Kel

”Socialism is not about the environment, it’s not about justic

the ruling class, that’s what it is. Look at what’s happening in Venezuela and so many other places.”
Green New Deal
Trump came out swinging against the Green New Deal, calling the progressive climate plan an attempt by Democrats to “com
pletely take over American energy and completely destroy America’s economy through their new $100 trillion Gr
een New Deal … which somebody described as a high school term paper written by a poor student.”
He said that the plan would destroy the natural gas, nuclear power and auto industri
es as “their plan would remove every gas-powered car from American roads.”
The plan actually calls for “overhauling transportation sys
tems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the tran
sportation sector as much as is technologically feasible” and does not call for taking away cars.
strates China’s current principles in governing foreign investment to ensure it receives treatment equal to that of Chinese companies in most phases.
Wang Wenhua, professor at the Law School of Beijing Foreign Studies Universi
ty, said the legal community generally agrees that the legislation is necessary and feasible.
Once adopted, the law will play a significant role in encoura
ging more investments, especially those with key strengths and vision, she said.
“We are now facing a new situation and new challenges at both home
and abroad. The draft law is sending a clear message that China is determine
d to further deepen its opening-up and reform as well as uphold the rule of law,” Wang said.
“Integrating a series of foreign investment policies and current law, the new measure
will boost foreign investors’ confidence, further open up markets and create a better business environment.”
projects, including highway, railway, airport and power stations. However, in the face of local protests, the effectiveness of Modi’s economic package, delivered just a few months before the
election, seemed very suspicious. Interestingly, because of the tremendous opposition against the Bill and the frustrating situation on the g
round, BJP’s top local politician who was defending the bill changed his tune almost as soon as Modi left.
Clearly, Modi’s twin election trick, which comprised both nationalistic and developmental ele
ments, was clearly at work during his visit to disputed South Tibet. However, sacrificing the pa
instakingly earned mutual trust and progress in Sino-Indian relations for the sake of ephemeral political benefits seems unwise.
Even though India and China have so far held 21 rounds of talks to resolve the border dispute, and Modi and President Xi have met at least four times in 2018 to bring b
ilateral ties back on a stable footing, the border issue remains the single-most sensitive topic between the two countries. While
the dispute between China and India remains too large to be resolved altogether, both sides would better carefully manage it.
After the successful landing of the Chang’e-4 lunar probe on the far side of the moon on Jan 3, Ch
ina is planning to launch Chang’e-5, a more advanced lunar probe, later this year to collect samples from the moon.
The Chang’e-4 mission, the first such mission in history, was an important m
ilestone in the lunar exploration program of not only China but also the wo
rld. About 50 years ago, the United States’ Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the moon, marking a critical step in spa
ce exploration. But no human has landed on the moon after 1972. Since Apollo 11, according to the US, effectively en
ded its space race with the Soviet Union, the Americans abandoned all ambitions to further explore space.
“Project Apollo” did not prompt other countries to join the space race because no country ot
her than the US and the Soviet Union could afford the huge costs. Even the US found it extremely difficult to s
ustain the project. For example, the cost of launching the Saturn V rocket, the carrier of Apollo 11 in 1969, was nearly $40
0 million, almost equal to the total budget of the US National Science Foundation that year.
