KATHMANDU - A wheelchair-bound Australian is aiming to become the first paraplegic to reach the base camp of Qomolangma, known as Mount Everest in the West, unaided - a breathless trek he reckons he will make mostly on his hands.
Shu called on the government to approve the construction of more ultra high-voltage power superhighways to transmit clean energy from western China to the eastern part to increase clean energy consumption across the whole country.
Scott Doolan, 28, sets out Friday for the base camp, which lies 5,364 meters above sea level and is traditionally only accessible on foot or by helicopter. He is out to prove that it is also accessible to wheelchair users.
According to Hu Dongyu, one of the researchers in the study, the dinosaur was the earliest-known creature to have asymmetrical feathers, a typical trait modern birds use to steer in flight.
Xi made the remark on Saturday during a panel discussion with lawmakers from Chongqing municipality in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
