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.

Three years ago, Zhao read about a hover surfboard i

 Canada, and that was when his “flying motorbike” fantasy became more of a reality.

Despite his enthusiasm, Zhao’s road to success was by no means smooth. He experienced c

ountless failures while trying to make the manned aircraft airborne during 1,559 flight tests. Zhao eve

n had to sell his apartment and borrow money from friends in order to continue his project.

He named the drone Jindouyun, or “Magic Cloud”, which was a flying cloud used

by fictional superhero Monkey King, a character from the Chinese classic Journey to the West.

He claims the lithium-battery-powered scooter can spend up to 30

minutes in the air, has a top speed of 72 kilometers per hour and can reach a height of 3,000 meters.

Zhao believed that the manned drone could prove to be an effectiv

e solution to ease traffic congestion, as well as for use by the fire departments or security forces.

He visited China for the first time in 2001, where he noticed tha

“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

ve really jumped into rich storytelling and created really fascinating worlds that the global audience will enjoy seeing,” he says.

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

d-winning Sophia the First and The Lion Guard, which is based on Disney’s Oscar-winning 1994 film The Lion King.

Speaking about the key to appealing to children aged between 2 and 7

, he reveals that the tales his team creates are built on down-to-earth research.

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

es and the characters. So we find their words very valuable and adapt our stories to make su

re that they not only comprehend the stories but also relate to the aspirations of the characters,” says D’Ambrosia.

Increasing number of countries going digital when reviewing documents

An increasing number of countries have tapped into the convenience of e-visas to at

tract more tourists from China, the world’s largest source of outbound tourists.

According to tourism insiders, the Japanese embassy in Beijing sa

id on Thursday during a meeting with local travel agencies that it will launch e-visa serv

ices on May 1, allowing applicants to submit their materials online instead of sending paper documents.

“The embassy said that e-visa services may be available in consulates in other Chinese cities next year,” said H

an Zhisu, co-founder and CEO of 666visa.cn, a dome

stic platform where visa applicants can submit materials.Chen Zeyong, CEO of online visa service tigerwing.cn, said the

Japanese government issued 7 million visa stickers for Chinese nationals last year.

For example, banks tend to gravitate to Frankfurt beca

 it is already a banking center in the European context, plus a clearinghouse. Also, Frankfurt has the Euro

pean central bank, which is now the regulator for all banks in Europe. So, the banks want to be closer to the major regulator,” Donoghue said.

As for asset management, insurance, and funds companies, Donoghue said, they are relocat

ing to Dublin because the city has a very broad and diversified set of capabilities in running funds and managing assets.

Andrew Pilgrim, associate partner at consultancy Ernst & Young, which is known as EY, sai

d it is probably not in the EU’s best interests to have financial services concentrated in one location.

“From policy and political perspectives, there is an argument to say that actually having a balanced financial sector across many EU jurisdi

ctions means that you have less risk concentrated in one jurisdiction,” Pilgrim said. “And it also means that you get a more balanced regu

latory and supervisory environment across all the EU member states, as opposed to all of that being focused on one.”

Sang Shulou, 36, was discharged from the hospital after recei

eceiving treatment on his face. Sang, with long bloody scars on his cheek, mouth and nose, said that he was blessed to have survived the blast that happened just 100 meters away from him.

“I was driving a car passing the explosion site and suddenly felt the car pushed away fiercely by a wave,” he said.

According to rescue headquarters, more than 1,600 houses near the explosion site have been repaired, and the

remaining houses that suffered slight damage, such as broken windows and doors, will be repaired in a week. Owners of houses beyo

nd repair will get financial compensation or move to newly-established communities.

he State Council, China’s Cabinet, set up a special investigation group for the blast. The group on Saturday said the probe wo

uld be thorough and with no leniency. It also severely criticized the local government and the company invol

ved for not learning lessons from previous environmental violations and failing to make effective rectifications.

Official records show that the Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical Company, where the explosion too

k place, had been punished several times previously for using safety loopholes and violating environmental prote

ction regulations. Chenjiagang Chemical Park experienced several similar safety accidents in past years, too.

The visit is meant to consolidate the stability and strate

gic nature of the China-Italy relations in the long term, and comp

rehensively elevate the level of their mutually beneficial cooperation, Xi said.

China is willing to enhance high-level guidance with the Italian side, respect each other

‘s major concerns, jointly build the Belt and Road, explore cooperation with third parties, boost cu

ltural exchanges and local-level cooperation, and strengthen popular support for bilateral relations, Xi said.

The Chinese president stressed that in recent years, China’s National People’s Congress and the Italian Senate have established a regular exchange mechanism.

China supports the two countries’ legislative bodies to carry out multi-level, wide-ranging and multi-channel exch

anges and cooperation, and share successful experience on major issues such as legislative supe

rvision, state governing, national economy and the people‘s livelihood, on the basis of mutual respect and mutual learning, Xi said.

“If Thailand had not missed several good opportunities, the

Chinese squad would be in an even more embarrassing position.

“Chinese soccer is no longer among the best in Asia … for a long time now, we have been in th

e second tier. Although we call our league the Chinese Super League, the word ‘super’ only exists in the name.”

Retired Chinese international Li Yi, who helped Shenzhen win the 2004 CSL title, also expressed his concern online.

“The current Thailand national team players are all in their prim

e, and they will be strong opponents for Team China for the next few years,” said Li.

“Now the old generation of Chinese players is retiring, but the young guns still cannot sho

ulder the responsibility. The qualifying games for the next World Cup are coming. We must try harder!”

But information has been slow to emerge and communicati

  ion with affected areas remains limited. On Monday, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi said that “everyth

ing indicates that we can have a record of more than 1,000 dead” — a figure that some experts now believe could be conservative.

  The mortuary at the central hospital in Beira “is full and dozens of bodies need to be

removed and handled in a dignified way,” according to IFRC. Beira is still flooded, which makes it impossible to bury bodies, IFRC said.

  It is premature to say how many people have died while affected areas remain i

naccessible, Stephen Fonseca, regional forensics manager at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), told CNN.

  On Friday morning ICRC set up a new base in Chimoio, near the border with Zimbabw

e. Fonseca said identifying victims is “a monumental task” that will take months or years rather than days or weeks.

  ”The agony of not knowing what happened to your loved one in a disaster like Cyclone Idai is

indescribable,” Diane Araujo, an ICRC delegate deployed to Beira, said in a statement Friday.

But Bercow ruled that, according to parliamentary proc

  edure, the government could not repeatedly put a motion before lawmakers if it had been previously rejected in the same session.

  May’s deal suffered a second, crushing defeat last week when it was rejected by 149 votes.

  ”What the government cannot legitimately do is resubmit to the House the same pr

oposition — or substantially the same proposition — as that of last week, which was

rejected by 149 votes,” Bercow said in an unannounced statement on Monday.

  Third time lucky for Theresa May’s Brexit vote?

  Bercow said that, in his view, the first two motions on May’s Brexit deal were sufficiently different not to have broken parliamentary convention.

  The speaker did not set out what tests the government would have to meet if it was to succ

essfully submit its deal for a third vote, saying only it would have to be “fundamentally different.”

  In response, a Downing Street spokesperson said, “We note the speaker’s statement. This is a statement that requires proper consideration.”
