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.

water resources while one-fourth of provincial regi

gions are facing severe lack of water, the institute said. In the meantime, urbanization has increased the amount of waste

water by 4.2 percent annually, from 48.5 billion metric tons in 2013 to 57.1 billion tons in 2017, it said.

China lags behind leading economies in water-use efficien

strial added value consumes 45.6 cu m of water, double that for developed economies, he said.

Water conservation should be promoted from developing, using an

Restoration of classic TV series sheds light on nostalgia

Generations of Chinese people growing up between the 1980s and the

early 2000s will no doubt share fond collective memories of spending the long after

noons of their childhood summer vacations squeezed in front of small TV sets watching their favorite shows.

Most people will be able to reel off the names of these productions, which have been broadcast ov

er and over again: the historical detective drama The Arbiter, the martial arts saga Legend of the Drago

nslayer Sword, the fantasy New Legend of Madame White Snake. You name it, we’ve all seen them.

Nevertheless, for the content managers at Youku, one of China’s leading

video streaming platforms, one problem has been bothering them for a long time.

When they finally gained the broadcasting rights for thes

e old drama series – in a bid to tap into people’s nostalgia – they were embarrassed to find users

soon abandoning the series. Some viewers even stopped watching after less than a minute, their big data analysis showed.
