The US retail giant Costco is diving into the thorny area of food retail in China with its first store opening this week, but analysts warn it faces a tough ride as it looks to succeed where a series of international retailers have failed. The move also comes at a challenging time with Beijing and Washington engaged in a tense trade war that has seen them swap punitive tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of two-way trade. China has proved a brutal battleground for overseas food retailers in recent years, with many failing to understand consumer habits and tastes as well as local competitors building a stronger presence.

A teenage girl from New Zealand sick with measles visited Disneyland and other popular tourist stops across Southern California earlier this month, possibly infecting others, local government health officials warned. The alert comes amid the worst outbreak of measles in the United States in a quarter century, with more than 1,200 cases reported across 30 states since October 2018, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is looking to identify others who are at risk for measles and may have been exposed to a non-resident measles case that traveled to Los Angeles County while infectious," the health department said in an advisory on Friday night.

The end of the Skywalker Saga is near, and J.J. Abrams and the cast of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” came out from the shadows to deliver a sneak peek at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, along with a new poster.Onstage to present the poster along with the brand new footage was director JJ Abrams along with most of the film’s cast, including Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver. Alas, Abrams said that the trailer is not complete yet, but the special footage shown exclusively at D23 shows shots from all the past films in the “Star Wars” series before a few flashing shots from the new film. Those shots includes an armada of Star Destroyers amid stormy skies and a new scene in which we see Rey (Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Driver) dueling on stormy seas.But the most surprising shot was the last one, with a hooded Rey wielding a red, dual-bladed Sith lightsaber. It’s similar to the one Darth Maul infamously wields in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” but this one has a hinge in the center that snaps out before the blades ignite. Pretty cool, if you ask us.Along with that footage was, as we mentioned, the new poster. See it below in full:“The Rise of Skywalker” will see Mark Hamill play Luke Skywalker from beyond this mortal coil, while Billy Dee Williams and Ian McDermid return to play Lando Calrissian and Emperor Palpatine. The film will also have posthumous footage of Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa filmed before her death in 2016.The new trailer comes a day after Lucasfilm released a trailer for “The Mandalorian,” the first “Star Wars” series for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service that will launch on November 12. Lucasfilm also confirmed that Ewan McGregor will return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in another Disney+ series that will begin filming next year.“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will arrive in theaters on December 20.Read original story ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker': Rey Wields a Sith Lightsaber in Sneak Peek Footage At TheWrap
