But as carriers start to deploy 5G at scale, smartphone manu

  facturers will start to have 5G as a base specification, rather than an additional special variant of their 4G phones, Stanton added.

  The 5G model, which is quite large at 6.4 inches due to what Samsung calls a combination of desi

gn reasons, will launch on the major carriers in the second quarter and first be exclusive to Verizon.

  ”Although volume expectations will be relatively limited initially, having a foothold at the begi

nning of 5G deployment will be important to Samsung’s brand and being part of the 5G j

ourney with the carriers, so it can learn as much as possible about this new technology and make continuous imp

rovements with iterative devices,” Ben Wood, director of research at market data firm CCS Insight.

  The new S10 phones learn your habits. For example, it’ll know you often open a

weather app and access Spotify in the morning, and pre-load those apps in the

background to save you on load time. (It’ll close them when you’re done so it doesn’t drain battery power, too).

  Samsung says this small touch will extend the battery life to about 24 hours on one charge — and you’ll have so much power remaining, you can share it with friends.

  Perhaps that’s the neatest new feature of the entire lineup: the abili

ty to charge another smartphone by placing it on top of any S10 device. It will make wish

you knew someone — anyone! — with one of these smartphones when you’re at 2% battery life and looking for a boost.

An S10 owner must approve sharing battery life with som

  eone else — so you can’t sneakily leave your phone on top of a stranger’s device at a bar — and it’ll autom

atically stop when the host smartphone drops below a 30% charge. An S10 will even charge iPh

ones and other non-Samsung models — a generous feature that’s hard to imagine Apple ever rolling out.

  The company also announced wireless Samsung Galaxy buds ($128) that can be charged when placed on top of a Galaxy 10S displ

ay. (Consumers who pre-order any of the smartphones will get the buds for free).Considering what most sm

artphone users want is a better camera and longer-battery life, the updated Galaxy S line appears to check th

ose boxes and more. Although it’s unclear how the S10 5G will sell, experts argue it’s a necessary step toward the future.

  More wearables

  Samsung unveiled two new smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch

Active ($199) and Galaxy Fit ($99). The water resistant Active smartwatch can monitor blood press

ure, features a breathing app to help with stress and touts sleep tracking. The Fit is a stripped down version of the A

ctive in the form of a traditional fitness tracker. It can monitor heart rate, steps and can go an entire week on one charge.

So what happened in between? Moros is helping researc

  hers fill that 70 million-year gap, as well as provide a portrait of tyrannosaur lineage in North America. Moros links the earliest, smaller tyrannosaurs to Tyrannosaurus rex.

  ”With a lethal combination of bone-crunching bite forces, stereoscopic vision, rapid growth rates, and colossal size, tyrant dinosa

urs reigned uncontested for 15 million years leading up to the end-Cretaceous extinction — but it wasn’

t always that way,” said Lindsay Zanno, lead study author and paleontologist at North Carolina State Un

iversity, in a statement. “When and how quickly tyrannosaurs went from wallflower to prom king has been vexing pal

eontologists for a long time. The only way to attack this problem was to get out there and find more data on these rare animals.”

  Zanno and her team spent a decade searching for fossils from the Late Cretaceous period. Th

ey recovered teeth and a hind limb consisting of a femur, a tibia and parts of a foot belonging to Mo

ros in the same area where Zanno found the fossil of a giant carnivorous carcharodontosaur.

  But Moros stood between 3 and 4 feet tall. The dinosaur they found was 7 years old when it died, a nearly full-grown adult

that would have weighed around 172 pounds. The elongated leg and foot bones indicated that it would be a great runner.

  Giant dinosaur footprints found and saved from floods in Queensland

  ”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “

These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida

ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”

Pelosi urges members to back resolution terminating

  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged members of Congress on Wednesday to bac

k a resolution halting the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump to fund a border wall.

  Pelosi’s call to action comes as the White House plows ahead on transferring federal funds not contingent on Trump’s declara

tion toward building a wall along the southern border, despite already facing several lawsuits.

  ”I write to invite all Members of Congress to cosponsor Congressman Joaquin Castro’s priv

ileged resolution … to terminate this emergency declaration using the termination mechanism within the

National Emergencies Act,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to her colleagues.

  ”All Members take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi added. “The P

resident’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the const

itutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated. We have a solemn responsibility to up

hold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.”

Within Japan, every professional person I speak to is bemused

  by Brexit,” said Paul Bacon, a professor at Tokyo’s Waseda University who specializes in Japan’s relations with Europe. “It

is obvious here how economically damaging it will be, and also that it creates serious difficulties for Japan

ese industry.”Britain is set to leave the European Union in less than 40 days, but Prime Minister Theresa May has failed to

secure parliamentary backing for her plan for what happens next, heightening fears of a disorderly departure.

  That’s infuriating for Japanese businesses and government officials, who have been aski

ng for years for reassurances that British leaders would limit the harmful effects of Brexit.

  The “trust has evaporated” between Japanese companies and the UK government, s

aid Seijiro Takeshita, a professor at the University of Shizuoka’s School of Management and Information.

  apan Inc has poured billions into the UK economy. More than 1,000 Japanese companies do bus

iness in the country, supporting more than 140,000 jobs, according to the most recent Japanese government figures.

  Many of them used the United Kingdom as a launchpad into Europe. But if the country

exits the EU’s unified market, “it makes no sense for Japanese industries to base themselves in the UK,” Bacon said.

  Around 60% of Japanese firms in the United Kingdom surveyed by the Japan External Trade Or

ganization in the fall of 2018 said they expected Brexit to have a negative impact on their future business.

Honda is closing its only British factory, wiping out 3,500 jobs

  Honda has just dealt the United Kingdom’s auto industry a huge blow.

  The Japanese carmaker said Tuesday that it will shut down a major manufa

cturing plant in the English town of Swindon that employs 3,500 people. T

housands more jobs will be put at risk at suppliers and other businesses.

  Honda (HMC) has made more than 3 million cars in Swindon since its plant there opened three decades ago. The plant, which

will close in 2021, currently produces up to 150,000 Civics a year for over 70 countries.

  Swindon is the Japanese company’s only car plant in the European Union. The restructuring will also involve Honda’s busi

ness in Turkey, which currently produces 38,000 Civic sedans per year. That will cease in 2021.

  Honda said that production would shift to Japan, North America and China.

  Honda Motor Europe President Katsushi Inoue said in a statement that the restruct

uring is needed to “accelerate our electrification strategy” as the auto industry seeks to overcome “unprecedented changes.”

Swiss banking giant UBS fined more than $5 billion in fraud case

  UBS faces a massive financial penalty in France after a court there ruled that the Swiss bank helped its wealthy clients avoid taxes.

  The court delivered its verdict in Paris on Wednesday, ordering the bank to pay €4.5

billion ($5.1 billion) and finding it guilty of money laundering and illegal client solicitations.

  The fines include €800 million ($907 million) in civil damages payable to the French state.

  Shares in UBS (UBS) dropped sharply after the verdict was announced, trading

down 4.2% in Switzerland. The fines are roughly equal to the bank’s net profits for 2018.

  Switzerland’s largest bank said that it would issue a statement “as soon as possible following appli

cable disclosure requirements.” The bank previously said the “lack of a case for the prosecution” had been “very evident.”

  ”UBS believes that the amounts requested were not supported by the evidence presen

ted or the law, and that there are strong legal defenses to the relevant charges,” it said in its most recent annual report.

  The bank said Wednesday that it would appeal the court’s ruling.

Moreover, in January, financial data continued its trend of

structural optimization from the previous month, which is reflected by the pickup in medium

and long-term lending and the continuous increase in bond financing. Looking ahead, such structural improvement is likely to co

ntinue, further boosting the supportive role of “loose credit supply” in “stabilizing growth.”

From the external perspective, the following three factors are expected to support the Chinese

yuan’s exchange rate to regain long-term stability, thus enhancing the autonomy of China’s monetary policy.

First, developed economies have slowed their pace of tightening. Since the end of 2018, due to the stalling global recovery and

signs of a returning crisis, central banks of various developed economies have become more cautious toward the no

rmalization of monetary policy. The European Central Bank, the Bank of England, and the Reserve Bank of Australia successively lowered their fo

recast for economic growth. In the US, the dovish voice inside the Fed has gradually increased. Because of this, si

nce late January, the yield inversion of short-term government bonds in China and the US has been eased. Thus, despite the

monetary policy differentiation between China and other major developed economies, the degree of d

ivergence is expected to decline, weakening the long-term pressure on the yuan’s exchange rate.

School strips alumnus actor’s PhD over plagiarismen in Dec

The Beijing Film Academy (BFA) revoked alumnus actor Zhai Tianlin’s doctorate following an investigation into allegations of plagiarism in one of his published papers.

Zhai’s PhD adviser, Chen Yi, was disqualified from teaching doctoral candidates. Both Zhai and Chen accepted the school’s dec

ision and further investigations will continue, according to a notice BFA posted on its Sina Weibo account Tuesday afternoon.

Zhai, 32, graduated from BFA with a doctorate last summer. But 40 percent of the paper mentioned above wa

s revealed to be plagiarized after his admission into a post-doctoral position at Peking University drew netizens’ attention.

Zhai appeared ignorant of the cnki.net, a famous Chinese database of academic literature, in a live broadcast in August 2018.

Portions of his paper were based on Zhai’s acting experience, but some key expressions were the views of other aca

demics, which were not properly cited. This is a serious academic misconduct, the BFA notice said.

bundant mallow harvest a boon for impoverished Iraqis

With rain spreading across Iraq, mallow growing in the northern and eastern parts of the country gives impoverished people food to eat or sell for extra money.

Mallow, or Malva pusilla, is a cosmopolitan weed found principally in temperate regions of the w

orld. It is a fast-growing annual or perennial herb with the capacity to grow in dense patc

hes in gardens, yards, roadsides, waste ground, orchards, pastures and agricultural fields.

It grows without any assistance and easily harvested and so is often called the “food of the poor.”

It is also delicious and good for one’s health.

Thanks to the heavy rain in Iraq, this year mallow spread and were found for collectors to harvest in winter, without any help from farmers.

Some of poor families are able to collect mallow plants and sell them due to its medical value, as it is used to treat some sicknesses and to strengthen immunity.
