BEIJING Air Huarache , Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Alibaba and Amazon tried to lure Chinese customers into buying more American goods during the Black Friday shopping frenzy.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S., is a traditionally big retail event.
Amazon China announced Black Friday discounts that equaled those enjoyed by American buyers on its website. Alibaba teamed up with American retailing giants Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, among others Cheap Nike Huarache , to promote cross-border online sales.
Both firms launched special webpages for Black Friday. Alipay, Alibaba's online payment system, also launched a service that allowed Chinese buyers to use Renminbi (RMB) more easily.
However, the response from Chinese shoppers was under whelming.
Some shoppers found the offers "too narrow" and were put off by the product descriptions only being in English.
Miss Huang who works in Beijing told Xinhua that she had spent two months salary on Singles' Day (Nov. 11) , so she had no money -- or time -- for Black Friday.
In fact, many buyers are still waiting for their Singles' Day purchases due to the high demand for Singles' Day express delivery.
Platforms like JD and Taobao have already begun preparations for another manufactured spending day on Dec. 12.
A report from tech.qq said Metao Nike Huarache All Red , a website dedicated to foreign goods, registered more than 20 million yuan (3.25 million U.S. dollars) of sales on Friday, with several others notching up more sales than normal days.
But Black Friday is no match for Singles Day, as Alibaba alone rang up sales of 57 billion yuan on the day.
SYDNEY, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Australian scientists on an experimental farm have developed a revolutionary method of killing weeds using microwaves.
Graham Brodie, a food and agriculture lecturer at the University of Melbourne's agricultural campus Nike Huarache All Black , an experimental farm in Dookie, 226 km north of Melbourne, has developed the method of using trailer-mounted microwave generators to combat weeds.
A bank of four microwave generators, approximately double the power of an average microwave oven, is put on the back of the trailer which is then driven over the weeds, killing them immediately.
The generators "cook" the weeds from the inside Nike Huarache All White , just as a microwave oven does with food, leaving them wilted and dead rather than burned or shrivelled.
The range of radiation is limited to between two and three centimeters, enough to kill the weeds while making the device safe to operate.
"It kills the plants almost instantaneously," Brodie told the university's internal publication on Wednesday.
"The big gain is that we can kill weeds without herbicides, so we don't have to worry about weeds that are now evolving chemical resistances, and it kills the seeds left in the soil too so the weeds don't grow back.
"It can also be done in any weather Nike Huarache Gold , it isn't a fire hazard, and farmers can sow their crops immediately instead of having to wait for the herbicide to clear."
The device could save the Australian agricultural industry more than 3 billion U.S. dollars which is spent by farmers on herbicides every year.
Testing of Brodie's device found that it was marginally more expensive than using herbicides but had added benefits such being longer lasting, enriching soil and killing pests such as snails, fungi and parasites.
Brodie said the microwaves did kill worms that were within five centimeters of the surface but deeper-lying worms were unharmed.
The device has been patented and will be subjected to a large-scale trial.

BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, home to a mix of ethnic minorities, has made great progress in various respects over the past 70 years.
Seventy years ago Nike Huarache Red , China's first autonomous region governed by the ethnic groups was established in Inner Mongolia.
"The place has physically transformed in the last half a century," said Kerry Brown, one of Britain's leading experts on China, who did his Ph.D. on Inner Mongolia.
He is joined by another Russia-based expert, Andrey Ostrovsky, who said Nike Huarache White , "Inner Mongolia is one of the leading regions in terms of economic growth, as well as GDP (gross domestic product) per capita." The deputy director of the Institute of Far Eastern Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences has been to Inner Mongolia many times.
Last year, Inner Mongolia's GDP increased by 7.2 percent year-on-year while per capita GDP was up by 6.9 percent.
Ostrovsky thought China's program for the development of the western regions, which was adopted in 2000, benefited Inner Mongolia the most.
"It received the maximum of investments and used the natural resources discovered there for the benefit of the development of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region," said Ostrovsky.
Meanwhile Nike Huarache Black , Brown believed Inner Mongolia is among one of the fastest developing areas after China further opened up to enter the World Trade Organization in 2001.
Today, Inner Mongolia is opening itself up to the world with more vitality, and the Belt and Road Initiative is also benefitting Inner Mongolia.
The China-Europe Railway Express runs through Inner Mongolia, connecting China with Europe, and the China-Mongolia Expo is also held here.
