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 Pandas

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.

A possible measure to reduce the hidden debt wou

uld be to separate the government-owned assets from that of the companies and let the State-owned businesses run by thems

elves, said experts close to the matter. This is particularly so for some public and infrastructure construction proj

ects. But it also means that the local governments will not be undertaking the default risks.

Experts said the minister‘s viewpoint is a signal that the authori

ties are determined to solve the vexed debt issue with more details set to emerge later and star

t a national campaign for preventing systemic financial risks, amid rising external trade challenges.

Other measures could include selling part of the State-owned assets, rest

ructuring the State-owned enterprises, or reorganizing projects, said Liu.

He said it is key for scientists to communicate with gov

ernment officials to create better planning and new solutions, and more inte

rdisciplinary research into natural disasters and risk management is also helpful.

China is in the midst of implementing a host of reforms, which are focu

sed on opening up its economy to foreign competition and strengthening its private sec

tor. They are needed to upgrade its industries and avoid the dreaded middle-income trap.

Many of these reforms are exactly what the United States is asking for in the trade negotiations, but China

is actually pursuing these reforms primarily to achieve its own long-term internal economic goals.

One standard goal is to create a “level playin

g field” so that foreign companies can compete against domestic companies in each country.

The case was made public after the father of one of the

e infants said in a social media post that at least three babies had died at Shunde Hospital. He

cited a suspected cross-infection in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit in March and April.

According to the post, his child was born on April 6 and was infected between April 7 and 10.

On April 11, the infant was transferred to Guangdong Provincial People’s Hospital in Guangzhou. The chi

ld was found to be infected with an intestinal virus and died after treatment lasting more than a week.

Many newborns were transferred to other hospitals after becoming infected, he said.

The health commission said the case resulted from Shunde Hospital’s lax ma

nagement, inadequate infection control regulations and enforcement, inad

equate infection monitoring in the infant ward and failure to report infections as required.

The plane bounced on the tarmac like a grasshopper and

burst into flames on the ground.”According to The Associated Press, the plane reportedly did not jettison fuel before th

e landing, as is common procedure. It was not clear why the crew did not do that.

Aside from the dead, nine people were hospitalized, three of them seriously injured, authorities said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered his condolences to the victims’ loved ones a

nd said the investigation into the disaster “should be as thorough as possible”.

The jet took off from Sheremetyevo at 6:02 pm local time and the crew issued a distress signal shortly afterward, officials said.

The aircraft’s black boxes have been found and handed over to investigators, the Russian Investigative Committee said on Monday.

In a statement, the committee said it is trying to determine the cause of the deadly plane fire and will consider the quali

fications of the pilots, the dispatchers and technical inspectors, Xinhua News Agency reported.

All of my knowledge and expertise in the space field

 was about ground operations, such as telemetry, tracking and command of spacecraft.

“I want to study satellites. I want to learn and work on communications satellites operating in low Earth orbit, because no

w we have a communications satellite in geosynchronous orbit, and remote-sensing satellites in low Earth orbit,” he said.

“I want to learn how to combine these technologies and do some research here in Beijing, s

o when I come back to my country I can help to develop our own satellite technology,” he added.

Each of Venezuela’s three satellites-one communication and two r

emote-sensing satellites-was designed, built and launched by China.

The Beijing-based China Academy of Space Technology, a subsidiary of State-owned spa

ce giant China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, is a major developer of satellites and spaceships in China.

There are more than 40 commercial fishermen dedi

cated to catching Asian carp in western Kentucky. The long-term prospects offered by ex

cessive numbers of the species are what Berry and Irwin are relying on to ensure work until they retire.

Berry said: “We want a bigger boat. From what we see out there, we confidently think we can catch

anywhere from 13,000 to 23,000 kg a day with a purse seine type of net. The schools of fish are massive.”

Once a school is located, a skiff encircles it with a purse seine

net. The lead line is then pulled in to close the net, preventing fish from escaping.

“The way we are fishing now, we start the net off at the bow of the boa

t,” Berry said. “But we are missing fish because we are not going fast enough.”

He said he and Irwin are saving and plan to reinvest all their money o

n equipment. A bigger boat would also help. They have to del

iver two to three times a day because the one they use can only hold up to 1,360 kg of fish.

The new visa-free policy will play a very activ

e role in promoting regional economic construction in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Great

er Bay Area and advancing cooperation between Guangdong and the neighboring Hong Ko

ng and Macao special administrative regions in the following years,” Lin said.Zhang Yimin, deputy director gen

eral of the Guangdong Department of Culture and Tourism, said the 144-hour visa-free policy will help make Gu

angdong, window of the country’s reform and opening-up, one of the major destinations for tourists from around the word.

He urged travel agencies and related units in the province to introduce more special tourist ro

utes with local features and offer even better services to foreign visitors. He suggested more foreign tou

rists tour and enjoy the rich Lingnan (South China) culture, cuisines and scenic spots.

The 29-clause plan sets six key tasks, including control

 of overall water consumption, reducing agricultural, industrial and urban use and technological innovation. In the meantime, two measu

res will deepen reform in establishing the water price and cultivate a competitive service ma

rket. The plan encourages private capital to join and expand financing channels.

China has a water shortage, the commission said on its website

. Each year, the country faces a shortfall of 50 billion cu m of fresh water. In the mea

ntime, public awareness of conserving water and preventing waste has to be improved.

In 2017, water consumption per $10,000 in GDP was 500 cu m, 66.6 perce

nt more than the average number for developed economies, the commission said.

China’s water resource per capita is only one-third of the world’s aver

age, according to the Zhongshang Industrial Research Institute’s website chnci.com. Regi

onal disparity has made it worse. Southwestern and southern parts of the country have rich

The male turtle, thought to be more than 100 years

old, has poor sperm motility and its genitals were damaged. Since it could not naturally impr

egnate the female, experts had undertaken four insemination procedures since 2015.

“It’s a disastrous loss for the protection of the species,” said Liu Nonglin, chief engineer of the Chinese Association of Zoolog

ical Gardens. “The experts had researched former insemination surgeries, consulted colleagues and made the best

surgery and rescue plan. The team even experimented on three male and two female large-sized Asian turtles usi

ng the same surgical procedures. But the tragedy happened even though the surgery was well planned.”

More than 1 meter in length and weighing more than 100 kilograms, Yangtze giant softshell turtles are the world’s largest freshw

ater turtles. Besides the one male left in China, two other animals, whose sex is unknown, have been observed in the wild in Vietnam.

“Artificial insemination surgery for the turtle requires procedures

such as anesthesia, blood sampling and sperm extraction,” Wen Cheng, a turtle expert with

International Union for Conservation of Nature, was quoted by Lifeweek.com.cn as saying.
