nd the winter sports industry in China? And what

Winter sports are relatively new to China and not played by

many Chinese people. In recent years, the Chinese winter sports team particip

ated in some individual events in the 2016 World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Seoul and

the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, the Republic of Korea, and won some medals, including gold medals.

The development of winter sports in China suffers from reg

ional imbalance, with people in the northeastern region being

the most avid fans and practitioners of winter sports.

But after winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Games, especially s

ince the issuing of a guideline that aims to prompt 300 million people to play winter sports by 20

22, the development of winter sports and the winter sports industry has gathered pace in China.

There is some merit to raising capital,” said Chief Exec

cutive Elon Musk on a call discussing the results. “It’s probably about the right time.”

He also said he would prefer Tesla to be private but “that ship has sailed.”

The company which is ramping up production of its Model 3 electric sedan, the vehicle Tesla sees as the key to future succ

ess, stood by its 2019 delivery forecast of 360,000 to 400,000 vehicles and said it may produce as many as 50

0,000 vehicles if its factory in Shanghai reaches volume production in the fourth quarter.

Tesla said it would make a loss in its second quarter but predicted a return to profit in the third.

Musk said that global deliveries were “the most difficult logistics problem” he had ever seen.

Haris Anwar, senior analyst a financial markets platform Investing.com, called guida

nce for the second quarter “bleak”. “I continue to see a very volatile 2019 for Tesla and its shares,” Anwar said.

In a large-scale randomized clinical study over a period

 of eight years, Ma found Chinese patients with advanced nasopharyngeal cancer suffered more side

effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.

The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of

Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.

More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch

emotherapy regimen, and moved post-radiotherapy chemotherapy to pre-radiotherapy.

In another clinical study of 480 cases, Ma and his team found th

at this regimen increased the five-year survival rate of patients by 8 percent.
