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.

After a two-hour hearing on Wednesday, the top court up

held the original ruling, and said the two companies should stop their infringement immediately.

The Shanghai IP Court will further calculate the exact amou

nt of compensation that the two Chinese companies should pay to Valeo, accor

ding to the verdict. During the first trial, Valeo had requested compensation of 6 million yuan ($893,000).

Wednesday’s trial is of great significance as it shows China’s growing efforts in protecting IPR, the top court said in a release.

“It shows the country’s strong determination in fighting infringement, and intensif

ied judicial protection for IPR and innovation-driven development,” said Ma Yide, an intel

lectual property professor from Zhongnan University of Economics and Law who attended the hearing.

The final verdict was reached only two months after the original one.

Such a fast pace reflects improved efficiency in handling IP-related lawsuits in Chinese courts, he said.

Former vice-minister of public security expelled from Party

Taking a step requires just one second for a typical person. But not for Gao Ziren, whose paral

yzed left leg requires him to first move a crutch forward before his leg, and then balance himself.

For 42 years, Gao, a teacher at Lixin village primary school in a mountainous area of East China’s Jiangxi province, has walked th

is way between his home, the school and his students’ homes. Over the course of his career, he has worn out more than 60 crutches.

Gao, 60, was born in a mountainous area of Meiling township, Wanli district of Nancha

ng. After coming down with polio at the age of 1, his left leg suffered muscular atrophy, which left him unable to walk normally.

He did not give up, relying instead on his mental strength to finish his studies from primary school through high school.

He started his career in 1977 when a village official visited him about being a teacher in the village, as one of the two teachers the

re had left. Gao agreed to take the position, as he knew the importance of a teacher to students, especially those like him.

n a rainy day, Gao Ziren accompanied the girl home and

comforted her when she was frightened by thunder. Gao has also used his mobile phone to help the girl talk with her parents. Gradually, her performance improved.

“I have taught many students since being a teacher for so many years. Some students wo

uld like to visit during the holidays, and it feels good that someone remembers you,” Gao Ziren said.

“When rural children lack family education, schools and teachers need to do more in psych

ological education,” said Li Wu, a principal of Meiling Central School. He said rural areas need more teachers like Gao Ziren.

As a professional writer, Chu has interviewed dozens of peop

 from across the country who moved to Dali. She and her husband, who help organize activities

such as gardening, hiking and cycling for newcomers, have a big circle of friends who have relocated to the city.

“People have different reasons for leaving, ranging from the need to take care of elderly pare

nts who have stayed in their hometowns, to taking their children back to big cities for better education,” she said.

People are also leaving because after two or three years without work, they need to find paid employment.

In recent years, thousands of people have moved to Dali from big cities. The exact number is not kno

wn, but a rough estimate from the local government shows that about 40,000 newcomers are living in the city.

Many people decided to leave their jobs and move to Dali from large cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong pro

vince, due to work pressures and surging property prices, which have been hotly debated nationwide in recent years.

Her business enabled her to live her dream; every mornin

 she opened the windows, breathed clean air, and the surroundings were often bathed in su

nshine, with beautiful flowers dotting the lake as waterfowl paddled on the surface.

However, in 2017, the local government ordered all 2,400-plus hotels, guesthouses and

restaurants around the lake to close until they had been checked and the authorities confirmed they had all the permits required.

With the tourism industry expanding rapidly in Dali, wastewater and garbage were often found being disposed of directly into

the lake due to insufficient or dilapidated facilities on the shore, creating one of the lake’s major sources of pollution.

Since October, a widespread environmental campaign has escalated and more t

han 1,800 lakeside properties within the protection zone – including 540 guesthouses – have been demolished.

The city has abundant sunshine and a mild climate all year

 round. Tourists can explore the old town, hike amid the clouds, cycle around the lake and enjoy bustling street festivals.

Before he settled in Dali, Yang worked for a bank in Chongqing, his

hometown. After moving, he started a business selling hand-made traditional costumes of the loc

al Bai people, one of the ethnic groups in China. Many people from the group live in communities in Dali.

A year after he arrived, Yang opened his small restaurant, which

serves spicy Chongqing cuisine. He has developed a close relationship with his customers.

“I cook the food on my own for my customers, most of whom

are tourists. When I serve them, I often sit and chat with them and listen to their stories,” he said.

“In my spare time, I go with friends to climb Mount Cangshan, or cycle around Erhai Lak

e alone. This is exactly the life that I want to live – having no pressure, but inner peace and freedom.”

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.
