Before his retirement, Wang irrigated farmland for de

nd for decades and witnessed local farmers’ continuous battles against sandstorms.

“It didn’t just feel like a black storm, it was as if the whole desert was approachi

ng,” recalls Liu Conghui, a writer who was born, and still lives, near the farm Wang once worked.

As the menacing sandstorms made the area increasingly inhospitable, Liu’s whole community planned to up sticks.

To restore the local ecosystem, the Chinese government launched

a 10.7 billion yuan ($1.6 billion) project in 2001. A set of measures were adopted such as sav

ing water, converting farmland into grassland, providing treatment for dry riverways and building dams. In addition to t

hose measures, industrial and agricultural use of water in cities and counties along the river was limited.

Over the past two decades, Xinjiang has infused 7.7 billion cubic meters of water into

the dry trunk stream of the lower reaches of the Tarim River in 19 rounds of water diversion.

emphasized that the company was committed to con

ontinuously working with customers as well as industry and governme

nt stakeholders to ensure its technology adheres to all of their requirements.

The US Department of Homeland Security issued an alert warning on Monday that Chinese-made drones may be se

nding sensitive flight data back to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there.

According to a report by CNN, the alert warns companies and organizations that the US gov

ernment has “strong concerns about any technology product that takes American data into the territory of an au

thoritarian state that permits its intelligence services to have unfettered access to that data.”

The report does not name any specific manufacturers, but nearly 80 percent of the

drones used in the US and Canada come from DJI, according to industry analysis.

On behalf of our hundreds of millions of footwear cons

The group’s reasoning echoes an earlier comment from David French,

senior vice-president for government relations at the Nat

About 99 percent of all shoes sold in the US are imported. Last year alo

th Huawei and some features of 5G are very suitable for the rollout of the superfast techn

ology in Europe. For instance, 5G capacity is 20 times that of 4G, and its power consumption 10 times l

Ren said the US technologies are still worth learning in both their depth and width. Many small US companies have super-precision products.

“But in our business (5G), Huawei is at the forefront, though when

it comes to comparison between countries, we are still far behind the United States,”Ren added.

“We will not go through an extreme shortage of supplies. We have made sound preparati

ons,” Ren said, adding that the company’s employees are working overtime to prepare for such situations.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satellite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China Meteo

rological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

For example, in March, China provided a remote-sensing monitor repo

rt on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and ter

rain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun serie

s of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automatic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.

Panda researchers hope algorithms and AI technology will help them analyze data on pandas both in captivity and the wild.

The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distributi

on, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to track,” said Chen Peng, a researcher w

ith the base who co-authored a paper on “Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Database.”

“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.

China has carried out four scientific field research project of giant pandas in the wild.

The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and named in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.

All of the respondents said they wanted to install the app

They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainfall, droughts, dust stor

lysis, remote-sensing applications and data collection.

Many countries along the Belt and Road have high mountains, deserts, oc

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