city produced by compressed hydrogen fed into fuel cells, are important in building a green ene
rgy future, as they are generally considered zero-emission and clean, according to Hu.
Such vehicles have long cruising ranges and can be refueled within three to five minutes.
In addition, the performance of fuel cell vehicles is not greatly affected by the change o
f seasons, he said, referring to winter’s adverse effect on the life of lithium batteries.
In recent years, the company has made moves to advance in the field, as bo
th the central and local governments are eyeing the potential of hydrogen fuel cells to upg
rade the manufacturing industry, and to achieve green and sustainable development.
China had around 1,200 fuel cell vehicles on its roads and fewer than 20 hydr
ogen fuel stations by the end of 2017, ranking behind the United States, Japan, Ge

and thus successfully averted gales and huge waves as high as 8 meters, according to the weatherman aboard the ship, Wang Lei.
For example, with no ice areas in Prydz Bay to shelter the ship, Xuelong had to de
part from Zhongshan one day earlier than scheduled in order not be blocked by a whole gale and huge waves. After
leaving the bay, it was first headed northwest to the marine-based west Antarctic ice sheet.
”Then a strong cyclone is moving to us and its resulting waves will block our way to north,” Wang said.
Due to the weather, Xuelong chose to sail westward at the edge of the westerlies to reach a haven area between two moving
cyclones, where it had spent two days before huge waves again blocked its way northward.
”After that, Xuelong had spent about 20 hours in waters east to the Kerguelan Is
lands in order to stay away from the winds and waves on Wednesday,” Shen said.
Legal professionals from Hong Kong and Macao will be allowed to work as arbitrators in Nansha district of Guangz
hou as part of an effort by Guangdong province to strengthen cooperation with the two special administrative regions.
Nansha lies within the Guangdong Pilot Free Trade Zone.
The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security has approved the introduction of the legal professionals, who
will work at the Court of Arbitration for Labor and Personnel Disputes to settle competing claims.
Sources at the court said the Hong Kong-and Macao-based arbitrators will be signific

“It will help provide high-quality, efficient and fast legal services for busine
sses, especially those whose investors include companies from Hong Kong and Macao,” the court said on Tuesday.

The court said the first group of labor arbitrators from Hong Kong and Macao will be appointed in late 2019.
give full play to its advantages and seek complementary and mutually beneficial cooperation on inn
ovation and technology in the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Ba
y Area, an official of the HKSAR government said in a recent interview with Xinhua.
The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area aims at building a globally influenti
al international innovation and technology hub, and Hong Kong’s role should be “capitalizing its
strengths to serve the country’s needs,” the HKSAR government’s Secretary for Innovation and Technology Nic
holas Yang said Tuesday, one day after China unveiled an outline development plan for the Greater Bay Area.
To build an international innovation and technology hub, Hong Kong has multiple advantages due to its world-class uni
versities, high international recognition and relatively low financing cost, according to Yang.

Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer of Microsoft and Robert O. Work, deputy secret
ary of defense under President Obama, gave an electrifying insight to Artificial Intelligence.
”AI is everything,” Smith warned, a game changer like electricity. He described the present as a “Sputnik moment.”
The former Defense Department official said the “this is the hardest tech challenge the US has ever faced.”
Both Smith and Work painted a picture of China chasing, catching and passing the US in this key area. They des
cribed AI as an enabler for autocracies like Russia and China and a potential threat for democracies.
In Work’s words, “AI gives tyranny new tools it never had before and makes it more powerful than it has ever been before.”
No one said it in the room, there was a laser like focus on the intellect and experience of these two m

Every moment they get cut slack by Trump is more machine code, jacking up their AI prog
rams back home. “We are entering a period intense technological competition,” said Work.
In the next war, he predicted, it will be “our AI against their AI, and the side with the best AI wins.”
But as much as moments like this came as sobering jabs to the solar plexus, MSC 2019 also held out hope of a world after Trump.
