From chips to its self-developed operating system, Huawe

wei has long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the ab

ility to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing st

ocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a

great extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of eco

nomics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objecti

ves-though many of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the

US hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

Meng also said that a new version of the nationally unified negative list for market access will be rolled out w

ithin the year. Illegal or implicit entry barriers and locally issued negative lists will be canceled, she said.

The Chinese authorities will also establish and refine mechanisms for adjusting the annually released

list when necessary, she said, adding that the list will better cope with the reforms to delegate power, streamline ad

ministration and optimize government services, and will better meet the needs of market entities for broader access.

Museums are not only there for enjoyment; they are education, and as such should be free.

While I can appreciate the enormous costs involved in maintainin

g and obtaining collections, let the wealthiest 1 percent of the country pay for it.

The Met in NYC is technically free; they ask you to give what you can afford. But the ide

a of a person or child interested in art not being able to view it because of cost is morally wrong.

Free entrance does not attract people, nor does it encourage them to appreciate it.

Sure, there are exceptions to this, but by and large human beings tend to look up to things that are difficult or costly to access.

A better option is to charge fees for regular visitors but provide free ti

ckets as prizes for high-achieving students and others who are likely to appreciate the reward.

Condolences flooded social media at the news of Pei’s passing.

Just a few minutes ago, the Louvre received the most saddening news. The architect behind the pyramid of

Louvre Museum, the Chinese architecture we just mentioned a few days ago, Mr I.M. Pei, one of the greatest architectural mas

ters in the world, died on May 16. He was 102. You may have gone to heaven, but you and your works will be forever rem

embered by the world,” read the Louvre’s official Sina Weibo account this morning.

“Mr Pei’s outstanding architectural designs made greatly important contributions to t

he history of architecture. As a Chinese-American, Mr. Pei was devoted to promote mutual und

erstanding between China and the US, and to further cultural exchange between the East and the West.

“The embassy building of China’s embassy to the US is an exempla

ry work that merges the East and the West and that manifests the long-term friendship and co

mmon future between the two nations. We recall with sentiments the architectural legacy Mr Pei has left us, and

the influence he has had on the world,” read a statement from the embassy of the US to Chin

Zhang Xin, associate professor at the School of Psychological and Cognitive Science at Peking Uni

versity in Beijing, believes “fat talk” may be a way of expressing that “we all share feelings of insecu

rity”.In China, “fat” has become a word that women will do almost anything to avoid being associated with. This is not surpris

ing, given that being slim as a beauty ideal has become the subject of countless newspaper stories, TV comm

ercials and movies, resulting in the almost universal correlation between a slim figure and beauty.

“Women are more likely than men to enjoy chatting with their

peers about weight concerns and body issues, and this ma

y release them from pressure over their weight and serve as a way to bond with their friends,” he said.

But “fat talk” is a double-edged sword. While it may seem a harmless way to ease dissatisfact

ion over body shape by gaining reassurance within a peer group, it can also serve to reinforce negative feelings.

Liu said that at the level of trade representatives, both side

both sides have the sincerity to solve the existing problems.

“The purpose decides everything,” Liu said, in English. “China wants a very equal and dignif

ied deal, and under this premise, a good, cooperative deal,” he said. “I hope our US colleagues would understand this.”

Liu said he believed both sides have a strong desire to reach a deal. “We need to work hard tog

ether to surpass the temporary difficult period of time, and then we’ll have a bright future,” he said.

Asked by China Daily how China and the US could help world economic growth, whose p

rospects have been already compromised by the escalation of trade tensions between the two countries, Liu said co

operation serves the interests of the two sides and the whole world, while conflict hurts both.

“We have tremendous common interests and many commo

n foes, only through cooperation could we solve these problems,” Liu said.

The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter G

ames was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used

in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonderful legacy story,” said Juan Anto

nio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while p

lanning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic marketing partners and four second-tier spon

sors, while the Games’ licensing program, which was launched early last year, has contributed 257 million yuan ($38

million) in sales of more than 780 types of products with the Winter Games logo as of the first quarter this year.

“It’s such a difference visiting today to see so many different animate

d productions being done in China. Chinese writers, directors and animators ha

Over the past eight years, D’Ambrosia has overseen production of such popular Disney Junior’s shows such as the Emmy Awar

“We actually do go into preschools and talk to children about the stori
