facilities and to provide the expertise for organizing great sports events like the Olympics,” Stift said.

“We are trying hard to get more Austrian ski instructors and traine

Besides winter sports, Austria is one of the most favorite travel destinations for Chinese tourists for is beautiful landsc

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

Zhang gradually gained a reputation for her exquisite work, and women in the village often went to her for guidance.

Chinese icebreaker Xuelong ends odyssey through ‘roar

  The Chinese icebreaker Xuelong with the 126 members of China’s 35th research mi

ssion to Antarctica on board ended on Friday a nine-day odyssey through the infamous “roaring forties.”

  Xuelong is taking the Chinese researchers back to home. The voyage beginning Feb 14 has turned o

ut to be the longest and hardest of its altogether four travels through the westerlies during the research mission.

  After leaving Prydz Bay by which the Chinese research base Zhongshan Station is loca

ted, the Chinese icebreaker almost immediately entered the westerlies.

  ”The westerlies usually are between 40 and 60 degrees south latitude, but this time the winds reached further to near 69

degrees south latitude, and that is where Prydz Bay and Zhongshan are,” said Xuelong’s Captain Shen Quan.

  ”We are currently north to the westerlies, but I’m afraid there is still a rocky, shaky journey ahead because of a tropical low pressure,” he added.

Wong Kong-tin, vice-chairman of the greater China legal

affairs committee of the Law Society of Hong Kong, said the appointment of Hong Kong and M

acao-based arbitrators to Nansha would be important in allowing Hong Kong and Macao residents to

directly participate in the social and economic development of the Chinese mainland.

“The introduction of Hong Kong-and Macao-based legal workers will help build a more open market and business system

based on international practices,” Wong was quoted as saying by Guangzhou Daily.

According to Wong, the court of arbitration for labor and personnel disputes of Nansha, which was set up in May 2

017, had already conducted exchanges with its Hong Kong counterparts.

“Through exchanges with its Hong Kong counterparts in the arbitration process, Nan

sha is expected to build a sound and efficient environment in labor ar

bitration, which will be very helpful to the development of the Nansha Free Trade Zone,” Wong said.

y Area, an official of the HKSAR government said in a recent interview with Xinhua.

Trump admin pushes for tougher action on Iran, swipes

  US and Israeli leaders continued to push for confrontation with Iran at the Warsaw ministe

rial meeting on Middle East security Thursday, strongly criticizing Europe as they did so.

  Vice President Mike Pence cast Iran as the central driver of all regional instabil

ity as he addressed the 62 countries gathered in Warsaw and ripped in

to Europe for its refusal to leave the Iran nuclear deal and join Washington on increasing sanctions on Tehran.

  ”Sadly, some of our leading European partners have not been nearly as coope

rative” on Iran as countries in the Gulf have been, Pence said in an address to the ministerial.

  Referring to Iranian protests in 2009, the vice president said, “The world missed an opportunity last time to confront the regime, but not this time.”

  ’I don’t rule anything out’

  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after a public appea

rance with Pence Thursday, told NBC that Iran “has to be countered and it has to be co

untered now.” Asked if that means regime change, Netanyahu said, “I don’t rule anything out.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, the ma

  Shapiro’s comments come just two days after Catholic leaders in Denver reached an agreem

ent with the Colorado attorney general to allow a former federal prosecutor to review its files re

lated to allegations of sexual abuse. Attorney General Phil Weiser stressed, however, that it is not a criminal investigation.

  ”I am confident in the steps we have taken to address this issue and that there are no priests in

active ministry currently under investigation,” said Denver Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila.

Tiny tyrannosaur fossil discovery changes the dinosaur timeline

  yrannosaurus rex wasn’t always the king of the dinosaurs. Before they became towering predators, tyrannosaurs star

ted out much smaller, and a newly discovered fossil is helping fill the gap between those two extremes.

  The fossil findings are detailed in a study published Thursday in Communications Biology.

  The dinosaur fossil was found in Utah, where it lived 96 million years ago in a lush delta during the Cretaceous period. It’s been

named Moros intrepidus, which means “harbinger of doom.” The dinosaur lived at the end of th

e allosaurs’ reign at the top of the food chain and before Tyrannosaurus rex arrived.

  It’s now the oldest tyrannosaur from the Cretaceous period found in North America.

  Medium-size tyrannosaur fossils have been found from the Jur

assic period, about 150 million years ago. And then, about 81 million years ago during the

Cretaceous, tyrannosaurs grew into giant predators and replaced allosaurs as the top of the food chain.
