Huawei’s rotating head addresses UK security concerns

Huawei’s rotating Chairman Guo Ping addressed UK’s securit

y concerns after the Chinese telecommunications company was criticized in a report on Thursday.

Huawei’s performance in the past 30 years has proven it has the best security record in the industry, Guo said at a press conference in Beijing on Friday.

The results from authorized professional test and evaluation companies in the US, UK and Finland show 9 out of 12 profes

sional capabilities of Huawei’s products have reached the top level and the other three are above average.

Huawei accepted the strictest and toughest tests from UK’s monitoring institution and was th

e first to promise worldwide that the company will make the process and results secure and trustworthy, Gao said.

The company’s board of directors made a decision to invest $2 billion to improve overall sec

urity capability in the next five years with openness, sincerity and trustworthiness, he added.


As the premises Wang operated were within the prote

e protection zone, which lies within 15 meters of the shoreline, they were demolished, and she

will be compensated by local authorities. However, Wang said she does not believe the money can make up for her losses.

She has debts of 3 million yuan – mostly borrowed from relatives and friends. She said she regretted moving to Dali to pursue an idyllic life.

While some are not happy that they moved, others are glad they made the transition from big-city life.

Yang Yi, 48, who operates a restaurant in Dali’s ancient walled city, arrived eight years ago fr

om Chongqing after falling in love with the city on a visit. He bought a house and settled down.

“I have traveled to a lot of places, both at home and abroad, but I was overwhelmed by the natur

al beauty of Dali, a place that can calm you. I feel this city is the most pleasant one I have been to, and it is where my heart is now,” Yang said.

For decades, many tourists have fallen in love with Dali’s beautiful weather, stunning mountains, lakeside scenery and vibrant ethnic culture.


In unusual but true stories this week, we have a surreal an

s creator, a spineless hedgehog recovering by massages, a performer transforming unusual items into musical instrume

nts, a restaurant beneath waters opening in Norway, and creating realistic masks replicating your pets’ faces.

All the odd and interesting anecdotes from around the world are her

e in our review.This one-of-a-kind graphy performance project has seen an artist alt

er ego create a series of surreal and wild self-portraits – where everyday objects are stuck all over his face.

The absurd works of David Henry Nobody Jr. feature face attachments ranging

from ice creams and toothbrushes to hamburger meat and even pictures of Donald Trump.

Not stopping with those additions, David Nobody – the creation of artis

t David Henry Brown Jr. – has even included peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and plastic toys i

n his face shots. To date, David estimates he has taken around 700 self-portraits in this style since starting the project in 2014.

The development of artificial intelligence is helping Beijing’s dogs, too. At the suggestion of the local government, AI sta

rtup Megvii developed a dog facial recognition system to help reunite owners with lost pets.

Just as humans can be identified by their unique fingerprints, dogs can be identified by their distinctive noses.

Xie Yinan, vice-president of Megvii, said the company has built a dog nose-print database with 1 million images to train the

machine-learning model, and the system is expected to help improve the stray dog problem in the city.

It is estimated that the population of stray animals in Beijing surpassed 1 million back in 2005. Homeless animals lead

to public health problems, but poisoning and shooting them has sparked debate about humane animal control methods.

Everyone has their own way to communicate with the wor

ld, said Wan. “I believe that technology can make the world a warmer and better place.”


Of the other three people apprehended, two were arrested in

  possession of firearms and police are still trying to understand their involvement, said New Zealand Police Com

missioner Mike Bush. On Friday night local time police tweeted that the pair remain in custody.

  Police said a fourth person was arrested Friday but “that was not related to these events.”

  Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that at least one of those arreste

d is Australian. He said the shooting was the work of an “extremist right-wing, violent terrorist.”

  Police said they do not believe there are any other suspects but added that it was still an open investigation.

  None of the four people arrested had been on any security watch lists prior to the attack.

  Attack apparently broadcast live on social media

  Authorities said they “will not be discussing the offenders’ possible motivations or the causes of this incident” at this stage.


Football player attacked by fan during local derbyhe assaila

  A man has been arrested for allegedly punching a football player on the field of play during a match in England.

  The incident occurred in the 10th minute of Aston Villa’s

game at local rivals Birmingham City, in the second tier of English football.

  The perpetrator ran from the stands that holds the Birmingh

am supporters before punching Aston Villa player Jack Grealish in the head from behind.

  Stewards eventually caught up with the assailant and escorted him away from the field of play.

  Both sets of players reacted angrily to the incident but the game

was resumed just minutes after. Grealish stayed on the pitch to score the winning goal.

  ”Following the incident on the pitch involving an attack on an Aston Villa player; a man has be

en arrested and en route to a custody block. Further details to follow,” read a tweet from the West Midlands Police.


Manafort sentencing marks rare reprieve for Trump world in Mu

  Donald Trump has rarely caught a break since special counsel Robert Mueller clamped a vise around his White House two years ago.

  Yet the President likely got to savor a few, rare crumbs of comfort on Thursday as he faces down an expansive set of crimi

nal, civil and congressional investigations into his presidency, campaign, business empire and personal life.

  The Virginia judge who handed Trump’s former campa

ign chairman Paul Manafort a 47-month sentence — far below the federal guidelines for his cr

imes — also gave Trump a propaganda tool for his fervent effort to discredit Mueller’s investigation.

  Trump had already seized on new doubts about the credibility of his former lawyer Michael Cohen, who branded the President a con man and a liar in a sen

sational Capitol Hill hearing last week, but who is facing new accusations of perjury.

  Nothing that happened Thursday lessened Trump’s potential legal or political expo

sure, or repudiated Mueller’s investigation, which has uncovered a pattern of lying by Trump aco

lytes about unexplained ties to Russia. It’s a measure of how grim the last few years have been for the President that the ja

iling of his former campaign chairman could interpreted in any way as good news for his White House.


In 2017, the working population in China’s agricultural indus

try was about 27 percent of the total workforce, but contributed only 7.9 percent of its GDP. If only 4-5 percent of China’s workforce were to work in the prim

ary industry to generate 3-4 percent of its GDP, more than 20 percent of the country’s labor force has to shift from the agr

icultural sector to the secondary and tertiary sectors. But that would mean large-scale redistribution of workers, wh

ich could create serious problems in many fields including public services and education.

Third, the number of people aged 65 or above in China is likely to account for 23 percent of the

total population in 2035. In comparison, when Japan’s per capita GDP reached 35,000 international dolla

rs in 2004, only 14.15 percent of its population was aged 65 or above. Which means China

faces a more serious aging population problem. Today, China’s median population age is about 37 years-sim

ilar to that in the US-but in 2035 it will be 46 years. So China’s aging population will pose a big challenge to the

labor market, industrial structure adjustment and the country’s overall development.


The Pulwama attack prompted retaliatory measures by India

  which said last week that it had struck a JeM camp within Pakistan. Pakistan d

isputes the existence of the camp but acknowledges that Indian jets had dropped a payload within its borders.

  ”Not even a single brick has been found there if there was i

nfrastructure, and not even a dead body found there. Their claims are false,” Ghafoor said.

  Islamabad retaliated for the strike by sending its planes over the line of control that marks the de

facto border between the two countries. In the ensuing dogfight, Pakistan claimed its air force sho

t down two Indian fighter jets, capturing one pilot. India said just one plane was downed.

  Ghafoor told CNN that the countries “came close” to conflict but the release of Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Var

thaman from Pakistani custody last Friday brought the two neighbors back from the brink of war.

  The two sides have been “eyeballs to eyeballs” in Kashmir, he

said, and that it was now “up to India” to “move forward towards de-escalation.”

  ”Should they decide to escalate more, this situation will go bad,” Ghafoor said.
