(PDF) Concept of an Accelerator-Driven Advanced Nuclear Energy System
This is that chinese ASDR concept using solid micrograins as a pumpable solid coolant that doubles as the neutron spallation target for the particle accelerator. Apparently there were concerns over the thermal shock from a beam trip event requiring a more robust neutron target.

Chinese researchers achieve breakthrough in nuclear energy -
So the main trick behind ADANES is using a tungsten grain based solid neutron spallation target that pumps like a liquid, giving fluid properties but solid heat capabilities (to better survive beam trip transients), and the potential to be a windowless particle beam target (improving lifetime).

Nicaragua gives Chinese firm contract to build alternative to Panama Canal | World news |
22mx286Km though it isn't made obvious if this will be a sea level canal, or a lock based canal. If the description of going through Lake Nicaragua is correct, it probably is a lock based canal though. Lake Nicaragua is probably screwed as far as brackish water contamination, but there already is invasion of freshwater tolerant ocean species anyways plus heavy sewage contamination, so it's hard to say if it will actually be worse.

Interesting chinese work on using EoL C-band transmitter GEO satellites that have drifted off-plane as a pseudo-GPS system with potentially equivalent performance to GPS at substantially lower cost. I assume there will also be a terrestrial repeater network, likely cellular tower based, for improvements in urban canyon environments. The interesting question is will any existing satellite operator be wiling to rent their EoL but still operable satellites, as this can be considered part of a military weapons and navigation system potentially. The alternative is chinese GEO sats having the capability baked in to improve usefulness at EoL. They only need 4 SIGSO sats and 2 GEO sats for the minimum constellation, ostensibly covering mainland china.

China's first solar chimney plant starts operating in desert
Wow, China is operating one of the few currently active solar updraft towers in existence! Getting modern operational experience? Using local sand as the heat absorbing medium, and having acutating shutters/doors on the collector periphery to use local wind flow to augment the heat rise flow are good tricks.
