If they wanted a replay of what happened to ZTE, a Chinese company which relies heavily on outsider

technologies, they may never see it. Because Huawei is a dramatically different kind of business.

The Plan B Huawei has just revealed — a series of self-developed chips — is only part of what makes it an enterprise of strategic insight, and hence resilience. Over

time, that insight has rewarded it with a viable biosphere that its founder Ren Zhengfei believes will enable it to weat

her the storm. “Our growth may drop a bit in the wake of US restrictions, but negative growth is impossible,” said a confident Ren during a Tuesday inter

view with Chinese media, adding that Huawei has cultivated longstanding trust with industry partners.

That may be why, even after Google barred Huawei from some Android featur

es, Ren spoke highly of the Silicon Valley giant, praising it as a “good company”. That may

it has long been prepared for the “extreme scenario” of the US blo

access to some components and technologies.

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipat

ion. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the company’s products an

d a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conferen

ce on Friday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and inte

rference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chipsets like Ki

rin, which has been used in Huawei’s high-end smartphones. In addition to server chips, th

e company has also developed chips for base stations, basebands and chipsets powered by artificial intelligence.

Huawei said in a statement on Thursday that restricting t

 company from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger.

“Instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior, yet more expensive alternatives, leav

ing it lagging behind in 5G deployment and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”

The company said it is ready and willing to engage with the US government to come up with effective measures to ensure product security.

In response to the ban on Huawei buying parts from US companies, the company said such a deci

sion will “do significant economic harm to the US companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of t

housands of US jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist in the global supply chain”.

Wang Peng, deputy head of the China Center for Information Industry Development, said the new US moves will disrupt the whole global electronics in

ustry and hurt a string of US companies that supply chips and other components to Huawei.

The company’s core technology is to produce diversifie

ed bicycle handlebars in accordance with

ergonomics to avoid sports injuries, said Xu Weiyao, deputy g

eneral manager of the business department of HL Corp (Shenzhen), a company producing bicycle parts.

Policymakers in Southwest China’s Guizhou province are trying to i

mprove education programs to empower children with knowledge and skills to combat poverty.

The province is determined that no child should be allowed to drop out of school due to his or her family’s financial difficulties.

Local educators believe that particular attention should be paid to boosting poverty-stricken students’ confidence

in their capability to lift their families out of poverty, and helping them view improved schooling as the way to accomplish this.

China’s export of bicycle parts increased to $2.72 billion in 2018, up 13.9 percent year-on-year, the largest growth rate since 2014, the report said.

A purported doctor who goes by the alias Dahanc

chengxiang recently wrote a WeChat article saying he often encountered patients who fell for the fake adverti

sements, wasted money and treatment time and thus missed the opportunity to be cured.

The netizen also strongly opposed Li’s nomination shortly after the announce

ment, saying in an article that Li was morally unqualified because of Baidu’s insufficient regulation of adver

tising. The article went viral on social media but was removed over complains of libel by Baidu.

Li would not be the first controversial engineer to become an acade

mician, which carries perks such as stipends and medical se

rvices. In 2011, the public was outraged when Xie Jianping, a chemical engineer who created less harmful to

bacco products, became an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Hu Qizheng, a professor at the institute who teaches fun

damentals of the space industry, said Chinese teachers are exp

loring approaches that are appropriate for instructing foreign students.

“Some of the students have work experience in the space sector because their countries have satellites, while othe

rs don’t have such experience and know virtually nothing about space activities,” he said. “So we have been wor

king to figure out an appropriate teaching schedule and to make sure everyone’s individual needs can be taken care of.”

The students’ first year at the institute was focused on basic knowledge about space p

rograms, while in the second year each of them will be given a detailed topic for research, Hu said.

Teaching materials given to the foreign trainees were modified from those prepared for Chinese students, while teach

ers are making textbooks specifically edited for foreign learners, the professor said.

Lophophora cristata, a distinguished mutant plant with

 a history of more than 100 years, with hundreds of colorful hybrids, is a blast from the past, she says.

Cheng, 43, decided to conduct research on succulent plants and c

ultivation after she graduated from the Beijing University of Agriculture in 1998.

But she set herself the goal of becoming a professional gardener much earlier-when she was in high school.

Cheng was one of the first batch of people who started to explore the splendor of succule

nt plants, but she didn’t expect the small pots would become a craze for millions of Chinese.

It was not until 2011 that the succulents industry in China started to boom, aided by cyber publicity.

A long-distance athlete since primary high school, Cheng has alway

s been dedicated to things she loves, such as replacing soils and pruning messy bran

ches in the garden. And despite being allergic to pollen, she did not give up on this career.
