Its use of state power to throttle the development of a fore

foreign company not only jeopardizes fairness and justice in world trade, it

also poses a tangible threat to the security of 5G networks.

As Huawei said in a statement, “If the US restricts Huawei, it will not make the US safer, nor will

it make the US stronger. It will only force the US to use inferior and expensive alternative equipment.”

Inferior equipment that might be exploited by criminals and terrorists.

That the order is politically motivated rather than for security purposes can be seen from the fact that i

t is merely the latest in a series of moves by Washington targeting Huawei-one of which was particularly despicable.

It has also tried to rally its allies to its cause, most recently at a conference in Prague on May 2-3. But i

t has been unable to persuade them that it is not simply being malicious in pursuit of putting America first.

China has also recently announced a strengthened reg

gime of intellectual property rights protection. Again, this is what foreign negotiat

ors are seeking, but also is important for China’s own economy as it transitions to being a technology leader.

Trade agreements can affect the types of goods being traded and they can redirect trade toward one c

ountry, away from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account bal

ance. A country that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gov

ernment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

US soy farmers call for cool-down of trade tensions

US soy farmers have urged Washington to work for a positive solution to the current tarif

f dispute with the world’s top oilseed buyer China, and avoid further escalation of trade tensions.

In a statement released late Tuesday, the American Soybean Association (ASA) described the t

hreat by US President Donald Trump’s administration to increase the tariff rate from 10 percent to 25 p

ercent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods as the “worst case” for US soybean growers.

“This is a predicament for soy growers,” said Davie Stephens, ASA president and a soybean farmer from Kentucky.

“With depressed (soybean) prices and unsold stocks fo

recast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, we nee

d the China market reopened to US soybean exports within weeks, not months or longer,” he added.

It also arranges for Chinese students at the institute to com

communicate with the foreigners to help them improve their ability to speak Chinese, he said.

For Chea, the student from Cambodia, studying at the institute has been difficult since the beginning.

“I majored in telecommunications in my university, so I knew nothing about spacecraft. For me, all the courses here ar

e very difficult. At first I didn’t understand anything of what our teachers were talking about in class,” he said.

He said he feels lucky because the Chinese teachers are nice and conside

rate. They have been trying their best to make the lectures easier for him to comprehend, he said.

“Now I can understand much of the content in our courses,” Chea said.

Moreno Pena, the Venezuela student, said he truly treasures the opportunity to learn from his Chinese teachers.

As the state was looking for innovative ways to tackle

 the Asian carp problem, Kentucky awarded Yu its first-ever fish house contract in fall last year. Under the deal, Yu’s Kentucky Fish

Center will buy Asian carp at a guaranteed price, with part of this coming from a government subsidy.

All fish at the center will be sold by auction to buyers in the US or overseas. S

ales will be overseen by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Kentucky provided a secured $734,000 fixed-assets loan to help the center begin oper

ating. Additional incentives will be awarded every year based on performance.

The center needs to reach certain goals: to remove 2.26 million kg of Asian

carp from Kentucky waters this year and increase that amount gradually to just ov

er 9 million kg annually by 2024. If those goals are met, the loan will be waived.

The entire program will cost Kentucky about $4 million.

In the past couple of years, Dong Biyong, a mille

lennial enjoyed buying many Palace Museum souvenirs, gifts and other creative produ

cts. “I tried quite a few from makeup kits, lipstick, blush, to various creative gadgets. They are good so

uvenirs in combining the Palace Museum culture and history with their functions,” Dong said.

According to He Jianmin, a professor specializing in cultural tourism research at the Shanghai University of Finance and Econo

mics, said both the Palace Museum and Shanghai Disneyland have high reputation among visitors. Since both bo

ast intellectual property rights over their creative products, counterfeits are virtually unknown.

Shanghai Disneyland, a $5.5 billion theme park, received more than 11 milli

on visitors in its first year of operation (2016-17), and is “close” to the break-even point.

“The shift toward high-quality development is a na

AI algorithms also give the images a much higher defin

Nevertheless, while the team once thought that AI offered all th

e solutions, a new question soon arose. Audience members asked: “Where’s the original flavor?”

After restoring the images to their original state, they soon began to realize that people still needed some nostalgia. For examp

le, old series made by Hong Kong-based company TVB usually have yellowing images, but many viewers co

mplained that its retro ambience had vanished after the color cast was corrected, Jiang says.

“People then said our restored version looked like a camera filter has been ad

ded,” Pei says with a bitter smile. “We then had to go back and adapt our methods.”

More complicated algorithms were later developed to carry out a tailored plan for each type of ser

ies, including those by TVB, Chinese mainland productions from the 1980s and Taiwan productions of the 199

0s. Some techniques in hands-on restorations were introduced later too, as Pei confesses even the best AI cannot handle every case.

In a large-scale randomized clinical study over a period

 of eight years, Ma found Chinese patients with advanced nasopharyngeal cancer suffered more side

effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.

The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of

Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.

More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch

emotherapy regimen, and moved post-radiotherapy chemotherapy to pre-radiotherapy.

In another clinical study of 480 cases, Ma and his team found th

at this regimen increased the five-year survival rate of patients by 8 percent.

The nasopharynx is in the upper part of the pharynx behind the nose, connecting the nostr

ils and throat. The location makes it hard for doctors to operate, so radiotherapy is the first choice
