|SYDNEY Brett Ritchie Jersey , July 15 (Xinhua) -- Global manufacturer Mitsubishi has been accused of misleading Australian consumers after a Brisbane woman had her warranty claim rejected because of a gecko.
Felicity Sawford was told the warranty to her Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning did not cover damage caused vermin after technicians claimed a gecko had short-circuited the power-board in the external unit.
"The two technicians that looked at it said look, they're classified as an animal and therefore they're not covered by the warranty," Sawford told Australia's national broadcaster on Wednesday.
"Even when both myself and my husband queried the fact that the wording in the warranty specifically references vermin, they said look Esa Lindell Jersey , Mitsubishi just doesn't cover it."
Mitsubishi's warranty states that the owner is at all times responsible for the repair of damage to the product caused by vermin. Damage from moisture and dirt are also not covered.
"It must be a particularly prevalent problem and it should be pointed out to people that small animals, obviously something that 's significantly smaller than a mouse can get into these units," Sawford said.
Sawford described Mitsubishi's warranty as ambiguous and impractical.
In a statement to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric said it treats cases like this very seriously and has taken Tyler Pitlick Jersey , and will continue to take, considerable lengths to prevent vermin ingress as best as possible.
"We handle instances of gecko or vermin ingress on a case-by- case basis, as there are often other contributing factors involved, " Mitsubishi said.
WASHINGTON， Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. space agency NASA said Friday its 12-year-old Opportunity Mars rover will explore a gully carved long ago by a fluid that might involve water， a feat that has never been done by a Mars rover before.
""Fluid-carved gullies on Mars have been seen from orbit since the 1970s， but none had been examined up close on the surface before，"" Opportunity Principal Investigator Steve Squyres of Cornell University said in a statement.
""We hope to learn whether the fluid (that carved this gully) was a debris flow， with lots of rubble lubricated by water， or a flow with mostly water and less other material.""
Currently， Opportunity is exploring the ""Bitterroot Valley"" portion of the western rim of Endeavour Crater， a basin 22 kilometers in diameter that was excavated by a meteor impact billions of years ago.
Opportunity reached the edge of this crater in 2011 after more than seven years of investigating a series of smaller craters， where it found evidence of acidic ancient water that soaked underground layers and sometimes covered the surface.
According to NASA， the gully chosen as the next major destination slices west-to-east through the rim less than a kilometer south of the rover's current location and is about as long as two football fields.
The longest-active rover on Mars also will， for the first time， visit the interior of Endeavour Crater， according to the latest plans for Opportunity's two-year extended mission that began on Oct. 1.
The goal is to compare rocks inside the crater to the dominant type of rock Opportunity examined on the plains it explored before reaching Endeavour.
""We may find that the sulfate-rich rocks we've seen outside the crater are not the same inside，"" Squyres said. ""We believe these sulfate-rich rocks formed from a water-related process， and water flows downhill. The watery environment deep inside the crater may have been different from outside on the plain -- maybe different timing， maybe different chemistry.""
The third main science goal of the new extended mission is to find and examine rocks from a geological layer that was in place before the impact that excavated Endeavour Crater.
But NASA said the science team has not yet determined whether the mound area will provide rocks that old.
Opportunity landed on Mars in January 2004 on what was a three-month mission， but instead the rover has worked on the planet for about 12 years.
NASA said most mechanisms onboard still function well， but motors and other components have far exceeded their life expectancy.

ADDIS ABABA Devin Shore Jersey , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- African officials have acclaimed the partnership forged between China and Africa, whereby the African continent is being benefited in terms of social and economic development.
Speaking to Xinhua, officials at the African Union (AU) said the Sino-Africa partnership is ever growing with significant results.
China is contributing greatly to the economic development in Africa, said Tumusiime Rhoda Peace Mattias Janmark Jersey , AU Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture.
"Almost all countries in Africa, the presence of China is enormous in each and every member state of the African Union, which is something commendable," she said.
As the interview was being conducted at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa Radek Faksa Jersey , the commissioner said, "We are standing in a complex (AU complex), which was donated by the Chinese government. This is very, very much appreciated and we know that the leaders of Africa are happy with China."
"When you go to the member states John Klingberg Jersey , you find that apart from the loans, the investments, you find that there are many, many initiatives supported Dan Hamhuis Jersey , even in terms of grants by China. So, Africa is benefiting in terms of economic development from China and the partnership we have with China is really building and yielding results," she noted.
Stating that there are success stories in Africa's agriculture in cooperation with China, the official underlined the need to further strengthen the partnership in the sector by sharing experiences and adapting Chinese technologies to African situation.
"We see China as being a useful partner in the development of the agricu.
