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.”

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.”

The secrets to running the best hotel in the worldShutterin

  But in more granular terms — especially when “best” can be so subjective — what does this even mean?

  Broadly, sure, it’s a hotel that’s firing on all cylinders. Everything from the meals to the amenities to the grounds mus

t be flawless. But for a guest, it must be more personal than that to obtain such high esteem.

  At Adare, it’s eating breakfast in a room that looks like it was lifted straight out of Hogwarts. It’s lear

ning the ancient art of falconry alongside the hotel’s resident Snowy Owl, Olaf. And it’s def

initely sinking your teeth into a freshly baked scone with a dollop of house-made lemon curd.

  So how, exactly, does Adare craft its magic? Read on for a peek behind the proverbial curtain.The st

aff at Adare is more than 500 strong, which leaves plenty of manpower to focus specifically on g

uests’ needs. General Manager Paul Heery also instructs his employees on the theory of “beyond everything,” which tran

slates into making sure every experience on property is exceptional from the guest’s point of view.

  ”Is the welcome at the gate a little bit more than the normal welcom

e?” he says, for example, of greeting guests upon arrival. “The objective is that every guest co

ming through gets some sort of a memory. We are always challenging ourselves and challenging the norm.”

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.

hooks, lines or sinkers: Cambodians go traditional in fishing

Wielding handmade bamboo baskets and nylon nets, hundreds of people waded thigh-deep into a muddy lake in eastern Cambo

dia on February 9 for an annual fish-catching ceremony where only traditional tools are allowed to be used.

The ceremony is held each year in eastern Tboung Khmum Province after the crop

harvest to commemorate the country’s proud fishing history, said local chief Uch Yoeun.

The event – held in Choam Korvean commune, about 250 kilometers

from the capital Phnom Penh – attracts hundreds of farmers from surrounding villages.

They carry weaved baskets of different shapes, eager to try their hand at tr

apping the freshwater catfish and snakehead fish in the muddy Boeung Kroam lake.

“It has been a tradition since our ancestors’ time,” Uch Yoeun told AFP, adding that only one rule applies in this mass fishing event.

Authorities guarded Boeung Kroam Lake for more

than a month before the event – to prevent illegal fishing and ensure there would be enough to catch at the annual event.

It kicked off in the early morning with hundreds of villagers racing to the lake, spo

rting straw hats and traditional scarves to shield themselves from the blazing sun.

The mood was light-hearted and many opted to grill the morning’s catch by the lake over a smoldering fire.

But for villagers who had attended the event for several years, the day’s haul proved disappointing.

“Before, there were bigger fish,” said Chin Khoung, 50.

“Now the fish are small and there’s less [of them].”

The Southeast Asian country, which boasts the mighty Mekong River and its man

y tributaries, is heavily reliant on fish as a major source of protein for its population.

According to the guideline, such new-generation hig

ifth-generation (5G) networks, genetic testing, intelligent robotics, 3D printing and the BeiDou navigation system will be cultivated.

Whether the Greater Bay Area can become an international technology and innovation hub is the key

to the area’s success, according to a research report recently issued by the China Silk Road iValley Research Institute.

The region boasts the most complete manufacturing industry chain and has world-class technol

ogy talent from prestigious universities. Moreover, the favorable location offers convenience an

d benefits to enhance technological and innovation exchanges and cooperation with countries and regions al

ong the routes of the Belt and Road Initiative and other major countries in the world, said the research report.

By comparing the Greater Bay Area with the New York bay area and San Fran

cisco Bay Area in the US, Liang Haiming, chairman of the institute, told the Global T

imes on Monday that balancing the interests of traditional and emerging industries, and helping multiple

industries share the work while cooperating are two things that could be learned from the two US bay areas.

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.

Li Rui’s controversial life reflects diversity of opinion

Li Rui, former deputy head of the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, died i

n Beijing on Saturday. His death grabbed the headlines in many Western media outlets. A report by The New York Times called Li “standard-bea

rer for liberal values in China.” But how to evaluate him divided online public opinion in China.

Li lived for 101 years. His long life span contributed to his influence.

Li’s life was a bumpy ride. He experienced almost all historic events such as the Yan’

an Rectification campaign, and himself became the subject of several political movements.

Li was imprisoned once in Yan’an before the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In the

20 years after 1959, he was either held in confinement or in labor camps. The experiences were even quite unfortunate in that historical context.

Li’s career peaked when he was appointed as the deputy head of the Organization Department of the CPC Central

Committee after the reform and opening-up. His title as the secretary of Chairman Mao Zedong remains controversial.

In general, his positions had not offered him opportunities to exercise an enormous impact on China. His influence was limited until he retired.

competitiveness of domestic industries. Widened market access

and lowered entry thresholds don’t necessarily mean foreign investment will be subject to no, or even relaxed rules and regulation

s. Like in other developed markets, a proper review and supervision will still be in place to monitor the development of the relevant industries.

For instance, in the US, while there is no such limit on foreign equity ownership, the government can

still conduct a review of major foreign transactions and investments in such industries as power generation, telecommunications, shi

pping, banking and media through the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), in the name of national security.

Of course, China will be unlikely to set up such a review body like the CFIUS, but

in the context of its accelerated opening-up, it is making its own preparations.

In January, a draft foreign investment law was submitted to the Standing Committee of the N

ational People’s Congress, China’s legislature, for its second review. The fast-tracked review n

ot only reflects China’s eagerness to make legislative preparation for the increased opening-up, but also indicates its

strong determination to open further up to the world and to level the ‘playing fields’ for foreign and domestic companies.
