War hero, 95, a model for all, president saysng Fuqin

In a written instruction released on Friday, President Xi Jinping called on society to carry fo

rward the spirit and dedication of 95-year-old war hero Zhang Fuqing as China forges ahead in the new era.

Xi is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission.

Zhang, a native of Shaanxi province, behaved courageously in the Liberation War i

n 1948, repeatedly achieving military glory. He retired from active service in 1955.

Over the following decades, he kept his battle achievements a secret, even from his children. His story

was made public at the end of last year, as information about veterans nationwide was being collected by the authorities.

Xi hailed Zhang’s deeds, saying the elderly hero hid them for more than 60 years and stayed true t

o his original aspirations. As a soldier, Zhang defended the country; as a civilian, he works for the people’s well-being, Xi said.

5G is not just a faster 4G. It will fundamentally reshape

 how enterprises run businesses and overhaul a wide range of industries by using data to create more value,” Lu said.

Greater access to China’s financial sector will encourage global investors and dispel the gloom clouding the global econo

my amid Beijing’s trade tensions with Washington, according to senior officials and economists.

Chinese financial regulators are preparing a comprehensive opening-up, with more new measures in the pipeline. Forei

gn institutions with advanced performance in risk management, credit rating, consumer finance, endowments an

d health insurance are especially welcome, senior officials stressed over the weekend.

The opening measures will offset part of the negative impacts of trade friction on economic

recovery, and enable China to reach its GDP growth target of above 6 percent this year, they said.

New vaccines could combat swine fevermay have fou

Chinese scientists have developed two possible vaccines for the African swine fever virus, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences announced on Friday.

The research was led by Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, which is affiliated to the academy.

Researchers have determined the minimum amount required to produce adequate immunization, and hav

e proved they are safe when used in large quantity and repetitively, the academy said, adding more research and tests are nee

ded before the vaccines can be submitted to authorities for inspection and approval.

Currently there is no effective vaccine for African swine fever, although

research and development of potential vaccines is underway in some countries.

Fifty percent of the enterprises affected by those addition

nal tariffs are foreign funded. Many of them are US companies whose primary market is in the United States, Wang said.

The recent US moves “abruptly interfere with” the normal order of th

e global integrated circuit industry and undermine its stable development, he said.

China’s chip industry has grown on average 20 percent annually since

2012, with sales revenue reaching 653.2 billion yuan ($94.7 billion) in 2018, Wang said.

He conceded that there is a significant gap between China and global leaders in the overall design, manu

facturing, testing of the relevant equipment and raw material processing for integrated circuits.

The tariff hikes will bring troubles in China’s overseas manufacturing market, but they

will not lead to a decline in China’s manufacturing sector, Mei Xinyu, a researcher at the Chines

China attaches great importance to the development of the

 big data industry and is willing to share opportunities of the digital economy’s development with other countries and jointly explore new

growth drivers and development paths by exploring new technologies, new business forms and new models, Xi added.

With increasingly wider applications of digital technologies in China, the country is expected to generate

and store 27.8 percent of global online data by 2025, up from 23.4 percent last year, according to a r

eport by market researcher International Data Corp and data storage firm Seagate.

In comparison, the US share will stand at 17.5 percent by 2025, a drop from its 21 percent share in 2018, the report added.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said th

at from medicine to transportation to farming, big data presents the world with a re

markable tool to advance global progress, but with that opportunity also comes risk.

Taiwan-based TSMC, the world’s biggest contract chipm

aker, said its shipments to Huawei have not been affected by the US

ban on the latter’s access to US components, Reuters reported on Thursday.

On Monday, the US Department of Commerce issued a 90-day

temporary license, effective until Aug 19, allowing “specific limited engagement in tra

nsactions involving the export, reexport, and transfer of items” to Huawei.

Some analysts said the US moves against Huawei will lead to strong support for the

unlisted Chinese firm as Huawei is working hard to offset the fallout of the restrictions.

Xiang Ligang, director-general of telecom industry association Information Consu

mption Alliance, said TSMC’s commitment to continue shipping products is of strate

In Shanghai, Mi Jia Kao Cai Fan, a restaurant that serves a tra

 traditional local cuisine-rice with salted pork and greens, the Cai Fan in the name-has ga

ined a good reputation for its traditional flavors and its striking interior design.

Instead of rows of tables that can seat four or more people, the restaurant has just one long table

divided into individual booths by boards. When seated, diners face a small curtain-covered window, wh

ere the food is served anonymously. Each booth contains coat hangers and charging sockets.

“I wanted to let our customers know that a single person also needs to eat well, so I designed things this wa

y to make them feel less ashamed about eating alone. One person can eat out and enjoy it,” said Li Le, the owner.

Many diners have left supportive comments about the eatery on Dazhong Dianping, an online restaurant review platf

orm. “With one person, one booth, eating alone is no longer embarrassing. A bowl of fragrant rice with a bowl of re

freshing mung bean soup provides a very comfortable dinner here,” commented a customer called Kobayashi1214.

The topic “Hotpot can be eaten by one person” has attracted about 56 million hits and more than 17,000 posts.

Cai Yani started dining alone in 2012, just after she quit her job as a maga

zine editor. During her period without work, she ate alone, but she discovered that ma

ny restaurants, especially those serving stir-fry, were reluctant to receive solo diners.

In response, Cai started filming her Solo Dining series. Each episode lasts about three minute

s and features one meal made by one person. The short series has attracted millions of views on Youku, a vid

eo-sharing platform in China, and its social media account has more than 1 million followers.

She believes the growing popularity of her films, as well as many othe

r videos and publications dedicated to eating alone, is not only due to the rising number

of singletons in China, but also the growing stress of living in big cities that pushes people to seek comfort in food.
