.S. first lady Melania Trump tried her hand Monday at Japanese calligraphy at a Tokyo elementary school. She visited the Kyobashi Tsukiji school with her Japanese counterpart, Akie Abe. About 300 children welcomed them with a school song. Trump wrote the first character of the Japanese word for “peace,” as Abe wrote the second. A er Trump’s first stroke, a girl student si ng next to her advised her to hold the brush ver cally and explained the order of the strokes. “Yes?” Trump asked later as she turned to her instructor. The student gave a nod of approval, smiling.The two first ladies, both wearing navy blue dresses, posed for photos, shook hands and exchanged high fives with the school children. The children were shy at first, but as Trump lowered herself and greeted them, many hands rose up, trying to hold her


hands.School principal Takefumi Ukitsu said the school was chosen for the visit because it picked America as part of a study project for Tokyo’s 2020 Olympics. Trump is accompanying her husband, President Donald Trump, on his first Asian tour,

Efcient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI) and Shannxi Automotive have teamed up to develop the world's rst PHEV cement mixer truck. PHEV drivetrain technology to cut costs and emissions in construction vehicles and appeal to a range of automakers.


lug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) technology has already helped hundreds of thousands of car buyers cut their fuel consump on and emissions, and now a couple of Chinese companies are looking to bring the same benefits to heavy duty vehicles in the construc on industry. Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI) and Shannxi Automo ve have teamed up to develop the world's first PHEV cement mixer truck. It's no secret that China has a major air pollu on problem, and the government has implemented subsidy programs to encourage the switch to electric power for larger vehicles, such as city buses, to address it. EDI's PowerDrive drivetrains, which can operate in either fully electric or hybrid modes and are aimed at OEM automo ve manufacturers, can be found

in many such buses in China, including those produced by bus and truck manufacturer Shaanxi Automo ve. Now the two have partnered to integrate EDI's PowerDrive 8000 PHEV drivetrain and PowerSuite vehicle control so ware into Shaanxi Automo ve's Class-8, 32ton cement mixer truck. The result will be a vehicle that can not only make its way to construc on site under electric power, but also operate its mixer electrically, thereby elimina ng the need for the engine to be kept idling while the cement is mixed. EDI says integra on and tes ng of the PHEV drivetrain is in its final stages, and the truck will be ready for ac on in the field in the next couple of months. It is hoped the vehicle will demonstrate the poten al for its PHEV drivetrain technology to cut costs and emissions in

construc on vehicles and appeal to a range of automakers. "We con nue to see a con nuing and expanded industry trend towards the electrifica on of medium and heavy duty trucks across the globe," says EDI CEO, Joerg Ferchau. "EDI established a market leadership posi on early on with our differen ated por olio of hybrid and electric drivetrain offerings, and we con nue to innovate to drive change for the commercial vehicle industry. Our careful selec on of dis nguished influencer partnerships-like those of Shaanxi, and pla orm deployments on other major OEMs like Freightliner, Peterbilt, GM, Ford, Interna onal, and others, has posi oned the company well to capture the market share."




IS NOW BIGGER, CHEAPER AND WATERPROOF TOO The newest member of the Kindle family is the rst to come with water resistance, it can survive up to 60 minutes under 2 meters (6.5 feet) of fresh water, and it can withstand splashes of salty seawater, too.


year and a half a er launching the Kindle Oasis as the thinnest and lightest (and most expensive) of its e-readers, Amazon is back with a follow-up. The 2017 model slims down even more while offering a bigger 7-inch screen, and adds bonus features like water resistance and audiobook support. Despite the jump in screen size from 6 to 7 inches, giving 30 percent more room for text, Amazon says the device retains the same 300 pixels-per-inch sharpness of its predecessor. It's also bumped up the number of LED backlights from 10 to 12, which should make for a clearer reading experience, and there's now an ambient light sensor that can adjust the screen brightness to your environment. The newest member of the Kindle family is the first to come with water resistance, as we men oned above. The IPX8 ra ng means it can survive up to 60 minutes under 2 meters (6.5 feet) of fresh water, and it can withstand splashes of salty

seawater, too, should you be taking it down to the beach. Here's another first for the Kindle line – support for audiobooks from Audible, thanks in part to the boosted internal memory that lets you store more on the device itself. Storage starts at 8 GB and goes all the way up to 32 GB, if you need that much. Bluetooth has been added, for headphones or speakers, though there's no headphone jack for cabled connec on. That same Audible support is coming to the previous Oasis and the standard 8thgenera on Kindle as well, so you can switch between text and audio versions of the same book as you like. You s ll n e e d t o b u y b o t h sta n d a rd a n d audiobook versions of your literature separately, though Amazon is offering discounts in some cases. While the design is similar to the 2016 model, including that asymmetrical sidebar you can use either le or righthanded, this me the e-reader is made

from one seamless piece of aluminum. The device weighs in at 194 grams (6.8 oz), so it's a li le heavier than last year's 131 g (4.6 oz) model. As for the ba ery life, Amazon is promising a huge six weeks of reading between charges, but we'll have to wait for some real-world tests to see if that holds up. You get a choice of new covers too, US$44.99 for the fabric ones and $59.99 for the leather ones. They no longer come with extra ba eries as they did last me, but they can now act as kickstands for hands-free reading (or listening). Last year's Kindle Oasis had a lot going for it, but it didn't quite ck all of the boxes, whereas the 2017 version seems to have everything you could want, and comes in cheaper too – the base 8 GB model is $249.99, which goes up to $279.99 for the 32 GB e-reader and $349.99 for 32 GB and cellular connec vity.

took the high speed train from Chengdu, China, to Chongqing, China, on Friday, 16 June, to visit with friends in Chongqing over the weekend. A er arriving in Chongqing, I took a local taxi from the high speed rail sta on to my hotel. I called my friend Summer, who currently works for China Express Airlines, to let her know that I had arrived. She had arranged for me to accompany her and several China Express ight a endants to go to the Sante Blueberry Camping Garden that evening to pick blueberries and have a mul -course dinner. Later in the a ernoon, Summer sent one of her friends to pick me up at my hotel and take me to meet up with her and three more of her China Express friends. As we all drove high up in the Gele Mountain Interna onal Ci eslow mountains, we passed the No Feng Shui Treasure Land Park en

route to the Sante Blueberry Camping Garden. The people at Sante also grow many different kinds of fresh vegetables in terraced plots. We proceeded to pick as many blueberries, fresh off the bushes, as we could eat. A er picking blueberries, we were served an eight course meal plus steamed rice. The people at Sante used their fresh picked vegetables in the food prepara on, and the food was marvelous. During the dinner, I took my chops cks and the piece of chicken that I extracted from the dish turned out to be the en re chicken head. I looked at the chicken head and said to Summer, “I don’t know how to handle this,” and she politely replied, “just give it to me.” We all ate as much as we could, and the folks at Sante packed up the remainder of the food for them to take home.

A er dinner, we hiked around the camping area as the sun went down. A few goats were kept at one sec on, and, at another sec on, the China Express people enjoyed bouncing on two trampolines while I a empted to take some photos of them. I

managed to capture one photo of Summer at the top of one of her high bounces. A er the trampolines, we drove back to Chongqing and I was dropped off at my hotel. It was a wonderful evening with Summer and new friends.

few of the buildings had small shops and small local restaurants open for tourists. At one street corner, several ar sts were busy pain ng images of the ancient buildings. We ate lunch at a ny Chongqing local noodle restaurant and then went to visit the Huguang Guild Complex. The complex consists of old buildings da ng from 1759 that served as a cultural, business and social center for more than 200 years. It was built for people from Hubei, Guangdong, Guanxi, and Hunan. It opened for tourists in 2005 a er a renova on. The complex was very interes ng and provided many photo opportuni es. On Saturday morning, 17 June, Thong and Peng, two of my friends from Chongqing, drove Summer and her daughter, Nancy, to pick me up at my hotel. They decided that our first stop would be to visit a por on of “Old Chongqing” in the Na’nan District of Chongqing. Thong parked near a tower that Peng referred to as the Tower of Scholars, and we

walked down a stairway to “Old Chongqing.” We walked along the ancient pedestrian streets and a d m i re d t h e a rc h i te c t u re a n d s u r ro u n d i n g s .

I had read recent newspaper ar cles discussing the increasing popularity of bookstores in China, and this bookstore was packed with young people and families with young children. Thong then drove us back to my hotel where I thanked all of them for a wonderful day in Chongqing. Hopefully we can all get together for another visit either in Chongqing or in my hometown of Los Angeles, California. On Sunday, 18 June, I took the high speed train to the Chengdu East Sta on. I transferred to the metro and rode it to the Dongman Bridge Sta on near my Chengdu hotel. The following morning, I boarded the ďŹ rst of my ights from Chengdu back home to Los Angeles.

ry, winter air can wreak havoc on skin. Not only does it steal moisture away, it can lead to ny cracks in the surface, lowering skin’s ability to protect against free radical damage. In fact, if you’re not careful, you can suffer accelerated aging over the winter months.

With a few changes to your skin care rou ne, you can avoid the damage and keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant during these winter months. Avoid these seven mistakes, and step up your nourishing and moisturizing care

LICKING YOUR LIPS We do it without thinking about it. Our lips get dry and our tongues naturally respond. This is horrible for our skin. Not only does the saliva evaporate, taking the moisture with it, it also contains enzymes that help digest your food—think “break down.” These enzymes do the same to the thin, fragile skin on your lips, so you end up with drier, more chapped lips than before you licked them. Keep lip balm with you always, and use it whenever you feel the urge to lick. Make sure you choose a product without petrolatum ingredients, as they can cause long-term dryness. Look for bee’s wax, honey, shea bu er, natural oils, and aloe.

52 EMAL MaGazine


USING YOUR SUMMER SKIN CARE ROUTINE Winter came suddenly for many of us this year. That means we didn’t get me to adjust. If you’re s ll using your summer products and rou ne, it ’s me to reevaluate. The skin naturally needs more moisture in winter, as the air is drier and tends to steal more hydra on from the skin. If you don’t respond to this change in needs, your skin will end up dry, dull, and damaged for your holiday get-togethers. Ask yourself: what does my skin need? Increased moisture is the most common requirement. You may want to change your lo on to a cream, and consider liquid founda on over powder. You may also want to change up your cleanser from a gel or lo on to a more cream-based formula. If you haven’t already, add an an -aging serum to pump up the hydra on. Your skin should feel so , smooth, and comfortable. If you no ce ghtness, dryness, or itchiness, something is off and you need to try something else.

I know, we try to cover it up, but it just doesn’t work. Any type of founda on, even liquid, will just call a en on to the damaged skin. If you no ce flakes, it means two things: 1) you’re not exfolia ng enough, 2) your moisturizer isn’t working. We usually suggest exfolia ng one-totwo mes a week, but in the winter, that may not be enough. If you no ce flaky skin, go ahead and exfoliate—just make sure you’re using a gentle product. Avoid nut-based and plas cbased scrubs, as these cause damage and irrita on that can lead to redness and acne breakouts. Instead, look for Dead Sea mud or clay, papaya and other natural enzymes, oat ingredients, fruitbased ingredients, gentle acids, and essen al oils. Then make sure that your moisturizer is giving your skin what it needs. An added serum (as noted above) may be the perfect solu on. Moisturizing masks can also be a lifesaver.

IGNORING YOUR FEET Once we stop wearing sandals, a lot of us forget about our feet. This is a bad idea in winter. Feet (along with hands) take the brunt of the abuse, and are o en the first part of the body to feel the cold. You know that the second something’s wrong with your feet, your whole body can feel off. Besides, the longer you neglect them, the harder it will be to get them in shape next spring. Consider not only maintaining your foot care, but stepping it up. A warm footbath can wash away all your stress in the winter, and if you add some deep moisturizer and self-massage a erwards, you’ll feel like a new person! Add Epsom salts to your bath to soothe any foot pain and so en skin, and regularly buff the soles to keep them so and healthy.

NEGLECTING YOUR HANDS We tend to focus on our faces while neglec ng our hands. In the last few years, however, we’ve begun to realize that our hands can quickly betray our age faster. It’s me to extend your skin care rou ne to your hands—which are the first to suffer in rough, winter weather. We wash them more o en to avoid ge ng sick, and we expose them to the elements—all without giving them any extra care. This is a sure recipe for dry, callused, cracked, and oldlooking hands. Carry a good, quality hand cream with you. Put it on a er each washing. This is cri cal if you want so , smooth, and young-looking hands. Avoid hand sani zer if you can—most are alcoholbased, which dry out your skin. Warm water and soap work just as well if you have it nearby. Finally, step up your hand care at night. Exfoliate your hands (you can use the same product you use on your face) and apply a deep, an aging moisturizer. If your hands are really suffering, wear co on gloves overnight to seal in moisture.

54 EMAL MaGazine

FAILING TO USE A HUMIDIFIER Dry dry dry. That’s the air in most loca ons during the winter. All day and all night long it’s pulling moisture from your skin. You can apply moisturizer and apply moisturizer, but the air keeps stealing it away. If you don’t use a humidifier—at least in your room, overnight—you’re figh ng a losing ba le against the dryness. Find a humidifier that works for you and use it in your bedroom, and poten ally in other areas of your home to hydrate the air.

FORGETTING SUNSCREEN When the clouds are out and the day is gray, we tend to forget about applying sunscreen. A er all, we can’t see the sun! But remember, even when you can see it, it’s s ll there. In fact, winter sun can be even more dangerous, as UVA rays s ll come through, and they’re the ones most responsible for aging and skin cancer. Protect with a safe product like zinc oxide every day!

5 FALL HAIR COLORS FOR YOU TO TRY NOW Before you know it you'll be swapping sarongs for sweaters, espadrilles for duck boots, and sun-kissed highlights for more seasonally appropriate shades. To help you get a jump on your new color way, we asked a few celeb colorists for their best bets for fall.


DEEP RED Go for a pop of color on your head with a rich red shade, like the one Emma Stone is spor ng. "It's easy to transi on brune es to this color if they are looking to brighten it up for fall," says Vo. To get this red right, ask your stylist "to add warm cinnamon tones" to your hair.

WARM CHOCOLATE While Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman inspired some to hit the gym, her enviably mahogany mane is way more a ainable. And Vo adds a great op on for natural brune es wan ng to "enrich and spice up their color." Deeper tones like nutmeg will take basic brown from so-so to sultry.

To adapt your summery surfer girl look for cooler climes, celebrity colorist Kim Vo suggests going slightly darker with a shade somewhere "between beach-y blonde and brune e." Think Gigi Hadid's warm blonde mane. He suggests asking for "golden highlights like the autumn leaves."



Looking for something a bit more o eat? Consider primary colors, says Josh Wood, Redken Global Color Crea ve Director. "I see the so er more pastel tones ge ng stronger and more bold." Beyond the pale, these eye-catching tones are "bolder and more expressive" and the next evolu on in pastels.

Now is the me to consider g o i n g p r e m a t u r e l y g r e y, according to Wood. He cites an increased demand for shades from dark slate and charcoal to pale silver and grey pla num. " T h e re i s s o m e t h i n g ve r y contemporary about a grey hue.

THE BEST AND BOLDEST LIP LOOKS FROM THE FALL 2017 RUNWAYS The lips on Philipp Plein's New York runway were as bold as the over-the-top looks that sauntered down the catwalk. Playing off shiny pleather puffer jackets and glossy smoky eyes, makeup ar st Yadim layered a cherry red or vampy bordeaux lips ck with a lustrous coat of lacquer.


Creamy caramel lips—a warmer take on a tradi onal nude—balanced out sultry bronze eyes on the Bo ega Veneta ranway.


"Jason likes to have a li le bit of something different—not just a regular orangered lip," said makeup ar st Yadim. To make a "statement," the pro applied a nearly-neon orange shade to models' top lips and a cherry red on the bo om before coa ng both with coordina ng glosses for a high-shine, vinyl effect.


A far cry from your grandmother's coral, the modern way to wear this classic hue is to opt for a sheer texture that deposits a wash of color that wakes up your en re face. The shade was done to perfec on at Tanya Taylor.


The just-bi en stain at Public School offers a low-maintenance approach to lips ck. Makeup ar st Grace Lee pushed crimson pigment into pouts with her finger p, then intensified the color by tapping a berry hue across the center of models' mouths. The final effect was meant to look like "a girl had on a deep red, but has been out all day and hasn't touched it up," she said.


There was nothing shy about the vibrant violet lips makeup ar st Mark Carrasquillo cra ed for the fast-fashion retailer in Paris. "We haven't found one girl that doesn't look good in it," said the pro backstage. For even more intensity, he dusted a flashy fuchsia blush over top.

La Perla's lingerieinspired ready-to-wear deserves a seriously sexy mouth to match. Face painter Erin Parsons filled in lips with a violet liner before dabbing a rich berry over top. Her quick p for adding dimension to a dark pout: Run a Q- p dipped i n m a ke u p r e m o v e r down the center of lips to reveal a bit of "brightness."




Think pink like makeup ar st Tom Pecheux did for Altuzarra. The pro dusted a rosy blush across models' cheeks and lids, then extended the so , feminine shade to lips to create a tonal look that was totally stunning.


THOR RAGNAROK IS A GAME-CHANGER FOR MARVEL AND THESE 5 REASONS EXPLAIN WHY Ragnarok, you guys! I am probably too much in awe of this Taika Wa film right now to write anything about it coherently but I will try all the same for your sake. Despite the rushed ending, and a couple of rough edges, this film is a marvellously thrilling, exci ng and dynamic adventure. I could probably write 50 reasons why this is a game changer Marvel Cinema c Universe (MCU) movie, but because of the lack of space and low a en on-span humans have online, I will limit myself to just five. For the first me, we see the son of Odin actually seemed like a real person instead of a stuck-up, en tled and humourless God we had seen ll now. If you do not know what I am talking about, see Thor in the original Avengers. In this film, Thor may be hammerless, but he was certainly not humourless. Also, the brilliant Taika Wa , with his own unique brand of humour previously seen in his films like Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows, showed to the viewers the incredible amount of comedic talent Chris Hemsworth has.

In an interview with Harper’s Baazar, Kate says, “I don’t want to be a person who won an Oscar and then disappeared off the face of the Earth. I want to be the person s ll here ac ng their socks off aged 90. And you don’t get there by being complacent.” The actor says she is happy with the kind of work she is being offered. “I don’t mind being 42 and not 22. I’m honestly OK not being sent scripts anymore where the main requirement is to be easy on the eye. I’m loving playing women who are more worn-in because of life experience. And it takes away the pressure of needing to conform, which I’ve never been very good at anyway,” she says. Kate also opened up about why she would never be a part of social media and said,”I do worry about the extra pressure to be ‘perfect’ on girls growing up now. I’m obsessed about the misuse and poten al perils of social media for our younger genera on. We need to be aware of how damaging to children’s self-esteem and the natural process of growing up certain aspects of this ‘sharing’ are.” Kate Winslet was last seen in a roman c survival adventure film The Mountains Between Us alongside Idris Elba. She will soon be seen in a drama thriller Wonder Wheel which is set to hit the screens on December 1.

Now that Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is out of the way, all the nerds have turned their eager eyes to DC’s upcoming superhero ensemble movie Jus ce League. And Warner Bros, the giant studio behind the film, does not seem reluctant to provide footage taken out of the upcoming film. Indeed, it seems like they are going overboard in pandering to their fans. A number of clips have surfaced and if one did not know be er, one would think they would release the whole film in parts before it gets released. There is a thing called too much details, a er all. But we are not complaining. The clips shed light primarily on characters, including the heroes of the Jus ce League Alliance (Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg), their enemy and invader Steppenwolf and suppor ng characters like Jim Gordon and Alfred Pennyworth. Let’s have a look at each clip.

This clip is about the threat of Steppenwolf, the villain of the film. He is the general and uncle of Darkseid, a tyrannous ruler of the planet of Apokolips, DC’s equivalent of Thanos (who was modeled a er Darkseid). Steppenwolf has brought an army of parademons to invade Earth and has most likely been sent by the ruler of Apokolips himself. The character is played by Ciarán Hinds. In this clip, you can see the strength of this being who dismisses a missile as “primi ve”.



JOHNNY DEPP REGRETS SURPRISING PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN FANS AT DISNEYLAND It seems like Johnny Depp’s plan to surprise Pirates of the Caribbean fans dressed as character Captain Jack Sparrow did not go as he would have hoped for. While appearing on this week’s The Graham Norton Show with his Murder on the Orient Express co-stars, Depp revealed that it was a dream come true to dress as Jack Sparrow at Disneyland, but later regre ed as it did not go as expected. The 54-year-old actor said, “I was very excited to stand stock s ll and then shout out [in Jack’s voice], ‘Oi, what you lookin’ at? I got no reac on whatsoever — nothing! I then had to start describing the people I was shou ng at so they knew I was real.” The Mortdecai star also shared that the experience was really exhaus ng and labeled it as a “bad idea”. He also talked about some his iconic roles, including Willy Wonka in 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Talking about his role, Depp noted, “In my head, Willy Wonka was a combina on of a rather creepy children’s show host and a very stoned George W Bush.” Meanwhile, he confessed he was not sure of playing Edward Scissorhands in 1990s movie Edward Scissorhands.”When I was sent the script I thought this will never be for me. But when I read it, it destroyed me. I had to do it,” noted Depp. It should be noted that Johnny Depp will be seen in Kenneth Branagh’s big screen adapta on of Murder of the Orient Express alongside Branagh, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfieffer, Daisy Ridley, Willem Dafoe and Penelope Cruz. The flick is slated to release on November 10 in the U.S.

At the Comic Con here, Anthony said, “I’ve thought about this a lot. My Bond would be cool, I mean smooth, milky smooth. No nonsense, no pretence. My James Bond would be a very, very mellow man with the ladies. He would be very aggressive in his figh ng style. And his Aston Mar n would be a conver ble with 20 inch rims and an 808 sound system in the trunk so you can hear him coming. That’s my Bond,” he said.
