In 2015, World Animal Protection developed an initiati

ive, calling for animal-friendly tours and for tour operators worldwide to keep wild animals in

the wild where they belong. It gained support from many travel agencies. By the end of last year, mo

re than 200 companies have removed the wildlife-related entertainment services, such as elephant rides.

Although some travelers are still not fully aware of the concept of animal-friendly tra

vel, the research reveals that 90 percent of them think the concept should be widely promoted.

Having visited the Antarctic more than 30 times, Zhao Xin, an experienced tour guide from Beiji

ng Caissa International Travel Service, said education on wildlife protection before such a tour is important.

Different from the first several batches of tariffs that focused more on industrial and agricultural products, the most rece

nt 25 percent tariffs on Chinese imports target mostly consumer products, including sneakers, clothing and furniture.

Trump has, on his Twitter account, asserted that “there is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs”.

The open letter, however, said “there should be no misunderstanding” that US consumers pay for tariffs on products that are imported.

“As an industry that faces a $3 billion duty bill every year, we can assure you that any incr

ease in the cost of importing shoes has a direct impact on the American footwear consumer,” it said.

It is an “unavoidable” fact that as prices go up at the border due to transportation costs, labor r

ate increases or additional duties, the consumer pays more for the product, the footwear trade and business association said.

Many countries along the Belt and Road have high moun

tains, deserts, oceans and a lack of accurate meteorological information. The number o

f meteorological disasters in the regions is more than double the global average, the administration said.

Wei Caiying, deputy general-director of the National Satellite Meteoro

logical Center, said that real-time disaster monitoring by meteorological satellites coul

d provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

“Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a threat to life and property. T

racking their path could help local authorities decide how to proceed with evacuations,” she said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Support Mechanism for int

ernational users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

Museums need lot of stuff such as vending machines and au

These kinds of machines are very complicated and benefit customers.

Most of all, students can gain a variety of scientific knowledge and principles through them.

I think art exhibits should be free to the public. I do, however, think twice

a year the museums should host a fundraising event to help pay for the cost of upkeep.

They do it all the time. Wealthy buyers pay $100 for a plate and the proceeds are given to the muse

um. If you decide you want to buy the art, the proceeds should go to the artist, with a fee going to the museum.

That’s why people need to pay admisson fees with regular prices.

However, they can’t run and develop these kinds of things without more budgets.

This facial recognition app tells one panda from another

Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.

The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pand

as along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.

The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.

Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa

tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.
