Old industrial base shakes off pollution amid Olympic enthusiasm SHENYANG, July 22 (Xinhua) -- The Liaoning provincial capital is known as one of China's old industrial bases. Serious pollution made Shenyang one of the world's 10 most polluted cities about a decade ago. For most local residents in the northeast city, the collective impression of their home is that "Stains always stick to gauze masks and white collars easily turn dirty in just half a day." In Tiexi, a district southwest...

They were the first vertebrates to evolve winged flight. One pterosaur known as Quetzalcoatlus was enormous, sporting a wingspan of up to 36ft. , making it among the largest flying animals...

By Tamora Vidaillet CHANGCHUN, China (Reuters) - In deep midwinter, the rusting factories in Changchun's Tiebei district have a desolate look, a stark reminder of how far China's Northeast has fallen from its glory days as the country's industrial powerhouse. But the last of the 1950s plants will soon be gone, swept away by a bold plan by Beijing to revitalize the region with a mix of old-fashioned pump-priming and innovative tax and pension reforms that, if they work, could be...

Highlighting the threat, China said an outbreak there announced last week had now spread to 18 townships, making controlling the disease that much harder. The officials meeting in Geneva are focusing on steps to stamp out the H5N1 avian virus...

Tianyuraptor, meaning "Tianyu thief," is a genus of dromaeosaurid dinosaur from the Barremian and Aptian stages of the Early Cretaceous Period (129 to 122 million years ago).
