A constant temperature of 27 degrees, a water bowl that never freezes, a comfy mat, and no dogs allowed.
Those are the amenities for felines in a neighborhood in Beijing’s Sh
unyi district, where stray cats can loll around contentedly all winter, nibbling food and sipp
ing water, safe from the weather and provided with love through an artificial intelligence platform. It is purrfection.
Wan Xi, an engineer at Baidu Brain－the open AI platform of Baidu－had the idea of build
ing a smart shelter for strays when he found a kitten huddled on his car tire in the winter of 2017.
Winter is rough for stray animals, as they require extra calories to stay warm. Only around 40 perc
ent of stray cats find enough food and shelter to make it through the harsh temperatures.
Although volunteers offer water, food and even heating pads to stray animals, Beijing’s freezin
g winters can turn a bowl of water into ice before a cat can drink. Many stray cats don’t live more than two ye
ars. Those that are not neutered or spayed face more health problems and spawn more homeless cats.
harbor, on the southwest coast of Seoul. On board were 51 containers of mixed waste that South Korean company Green SoKo had exported to the Philippines last year.
The company had claimed the waste was recyclable plastic, but most of it was not in fact recyclable an
d had been strewn over a 45,000 square meter patch (almost 500,000 square feet) of Mindanao island.
Locals discovered that the trash included household garbage, used diapers, empty ca
ns of ham, and washing machine parts. Protests by environmental group EcoWaste Coalition put pressure on the South Korean govern
ment to take back the trash.What that container ship brought back to Seoul, however, was only a fraction of the 290
,000 tons of waste which South Korean Customs estimates was illegally exported in 2018.
A report released last month by the Ministry of Environment
blamed the problem on the lack of affordable alternatives for disposing of solid waste.
”The cost of incineration used to be $53 per ton and now it’s over $230. The waste comp
anies cannot recycle or incinerate (affordably), so the waste is left abandoned,” ministry officials said at a briefing.
ie Yifeng, president of the Realty Association of Asia-Pacific Cities, said the sliding sales
in January were due to seasonal factors and should not be regarded as a market trend.
“The Spring Festival was the main reason,” he said. “Property developers were not passionate about selling new proj
ects during the holiday, and it was not very realistic for banks to release housing loans before or during the holiday.”
“A significant index was the registered sold property on the government’s website, but government employees were on
a break too and the statistics of sold property registered on the government’s website were not getting a timely upd
ate,” he said. “The real statistics from last December to January will gradually start to be updated in March.”
In fact, Xie predicted the market in 2019 would be better than last year, as he said the real market indicators were the rising land prices and the amount of land sold.
“The decisive factor is the government’s decision on the shantytown redevelopment policy,” he added, pointing
out that this was expected during this year’s session of the National People’s Congress in March.
Zhang Bo, chief analyst at the 58 Anjuke Institute, said apart from buyers being skeptical tow
ard the price, the weakening intention for speculation was another factor contributing to the slow sales in lower-tier cities.
