ther IPOs have traded well so far in 2019, including

 end of its targeted range, hoping that approach would spare it the trading plunge suffered by Lyft.

Lyft ended down 6.9% on Friday, and is 28 percent below its IPO price.

Still, the world’s largest ride-hailing company appeared to ge

nerate more interest from mom-and-pop investors than Lyft. Retail investors at TD Am

eritrade executed more trades in the first ten minutes of Uber’s debut than in Lyft’s first 2-1/2 hours.

Uber had already lowered its valuation expectations twice in the last two months to address investor concerns over its mounting losses.

While early-stage Uber investors such as Benchmark, Menlo Ventures, First Round

Capital and Lowercase Capital made a killing in the IPO, some late-stage backers did not fare as well

The city competition for talents in China heats up, as an incre

asing number of cities offer favorable housing policies to attract residents.

Ningbo in East China’s Zhejiang province is one of the most recent entrants to join in. L

The city already added 30,000 new kindergarten slots la

last year to meet the increasing demand of preschool education with the implemen

tation of the second child policy and more migrant workers coming to the city, he said at a news conference in Beijing.

Beijing has 450,000 kindergarten students, 63 percent of whom attend public kindergartens, he said.

The city has made great efforts to ensure the safety of kinderga

rten students by making sure the public areas in the facilities are covered by surveillance ca

meras and that camera footage is guarded and stored for 30 days, Feng said.

At least two kindergarten caretakers should be present at all times with stud

ents, he added, noting that educators have worked closely with public security authorities.

The tanks lined up, were kept 50 meters apart and stre

ched for 10 km, making it a memorable scene for a generation.

In October 2016, the bridge was closed for repairs after being open for almost 50 years. The 100,000 vehicles it carried each day far

exceeded its designed capacity of 8,000, causing many cracks to appear in the structure. It has been repaired 12 times since 2002.

Other problems it faced included falling mortar and metal fatigue.

The government decided to spend more than 1.1 billion yuan ($164 million) on the repairs.

The structure’s original concrete deck was replaced by a steel one, which is lighter and h

as greater durability. The replacement work was carried out above the 27,000-volt railway line. Any falling mater

ial, even a screw, would have caused a power failure and disrupted services on the busy Beijing-Shanghai Rail

way. Workers had to erect scaffolding and protective nets when no trains were passing.

The diameter of the lamp bases on the bridge were reduced by 5 ce

ntimeters, making the sidewalk wider and more convenient for pedestrians.

With the coming of 5G commercialization, Miao disclosed

 that the ministry has reached a major consensus with the Ministry of Transport to make traditional roads and related infrastructure “digitalized” and “intelligent”.

Traffic lights, for instance, will benefit from 5G, with its large bandwidth and low l

atency, enabling them to send signals according to real-time road conditions, he said.

Currently in China, major equipment makers including Huawei Technologies Co Ltd are developing related standards, technologies and infrastructure.

“The 5G-related plans made by telecom experts might not meet the actual needs in real applications,” sai

d Yang Chaobin, president of 5G product line at Huawei. “Therefore, it’s important to involve all types of industries in 5G construction.”

Top officials at the Confederation of British Industry and t

  he Trades Union Congress said Thursday that Britain faces a “national emergency” if politicians allow that to happen.

  ”Firms and communities across the United Kingdom are not ready for this outcome. Th

e shock to our economy would be felt by generations to come,” they wrote in a letter to May.

  McDonald’s (MCD) and KFC (YUM) joined with UK supermarkets to warn that crash

ing out of the European Union would disrupt supplies. Airbus has said that it would be forced to redirect future inv

estment away from the United Kingdom.What can the UK achieve in three weeks that it couldn’t in three years?

  The most obvious answer to this is, worryingly for some, not very much.

  While the European Union offered Prime Minister Theresa May — and her vision fo

r Brexit — a final lifeline this week, it did so with caveats and, crucially, harder deadlines than before.

  It’s these deadlines that European leaders hope will focus the minds of British la

wmakers as they return to the House of Commons to try and find a way out of the Brexit deadlock.
