A British explorer is claiming to be the first person to walk the length of the Yangtze River in China after enduring fr

Ash Dykes, from Old Colwyn in North Wales, finished the 6,437-kilometer jo
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤urney on Monday after he was delayed by a couple of days because of Typhoon Lekima.
The 28-year-old said he felt great after crossing the finish line in
Shanghai, where he was greeted by family, media, and Chinese supporters.ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信
“As soon as I was on the final stretch, people started to join and we sort of ran to the finish and popped the champagne,” Dykes said.
The expedition took two years to plan and 352 days to complete.
At the start of the trek, the source of the Yangtze River was difficult toldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤
reach and four members of his team left the expedition before it began because of al
titude sickness. There were also fears over the possibility of bear and wolf attacks.
“One day, I was told by locals that a woman was killed by a pack ofldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信
wolves and for the next two days we were followed by a pack of wolves, so that was very int
imidating,” Dykes said. “We thought bears would leave us alone but the locals told us otherwise … so we would try and shelldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤
ter with the locals or, if I was in my tent, I wouldn’t get food out. We had to stay alert and focus.”
He said he wanted to use his journey to highlight conservation projects by partneldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信

Around 1.08 million first-instance court cases on the environment and resources have been registe
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤女神会所red in China in the five-year period since the June 2014 establishment of the Adjudication Trib
unal for Environment and Resources at the Supreme People’s Court (SPC), an SPC vice-president said Tuesday.
Jiang Bixin revealed the figure at a press conference marking the fifth anniversary of the aboldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤
ve-mentioned adjudication tribunal that was created to lead and guide environment- and resources-re
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤lated adjudication work across the country, among the SPC’s moves to step up work in the area.
Around 1.03 million cases on the environment and resources we
re concluded by courts of various levels during the same period, he said.ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤女神会所
The period saw the registration of more than 113,000 new criminal cases on
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤the environment and resources and the conclusion of over 108,000 cases of this typ
e amid courts’ intensified crackdown on crimes of polluting and damaging the environment, Jiang said.
Among its efforts to improve systems, mechanisms and ways for environment- and reldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤女神会所
sources-related adjudication work, the SPC has pushed for steady progress in forming adjudication bodies spe
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤cializing in handling cases on the environment and resources at courts of various levels.
As of June 2019, there were a total of 1,201 adjudication bodi
es specializing in handling cases on the environment and resources natioldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤女神会所

lowing crashes March 10 in Ethiopia and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an autom
ated anti-stall device, apparently forced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fat
al plunge when it erroneously determined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤
There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, including about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend abo
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤ut $1 billion to update and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from rep
eatedly pointing the nose of the plane down and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信
In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg refused toldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤
say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six-year development and cer
tification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信
Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercial service by
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤the end of the summer, but it could be months before the worldwide fleet returns to the air. Boe
ldsports,ldsportsapp龙凤品茶微信ing said it has completed the software update for the MCAS system and has tested it on 207 flights totaling 360 hours. The
US Federal Aviation Administration has not said when its review of the updated software will be completed.

Musk expected that the Shanghai plant could produce 3,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the end of this year.

?arrived in Japan for a state visit that will make him the first world leader to meet the country’s new emperor.
Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived Saturday aboard Air Force One after a 14-hour journey. The president was h
eading to a dinner with business leaders at the US Ambassador’s residence in Tokyo after a brief airport welcome.
The visit is part of a continuing charm offensive by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo
Abe that analysts say has spared Japan from far more debilitating retaliatory action by Trump.
The president has refused to lift the threat of slapping potentially devastating US
tariffs on imports of Japanese autos and auto parts on national security grounds.
US tariffs against Japanese aluminum and steel remain.
