“We need to upgrade our internet services. This is a key measure t

o boost consumption and meet the needs of our massive cellphone users,” Premier Li said.

Participants at the meeting agreed that upgrading and expanding the cap

acity of internet infrastructure should be an important area in boosting effective inves

tment. By the end of this year, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) ports relative to all broadband ports will be raised to more th

an 90 percent, 1,000M broadband will be extended to more than 300 cities, and base stations for mobile internet will be upg

raded with expanded capacity. The goal is to raise the speed of both fixed-line and mobile internet services to 1,000M.

Broadband networks will cover 97 percent of primary and middle schools nationwide this year, and dedicated inter

net services will be made available over time in hospitals and medical consortiums above the county level.

In the spin and swing of a vinyl revivalned recorone th

It’s a Sunday afternoon and Yang Haisong seems to be in a chipper mood. Under a blazing sun on a warm day in Beijing he sit

s on the side of a road smoking a cigarette. Yang, a founding member of the Chinese rock band P. K. 14 and its l

ead vocalist, is taking a break from activities in Free Sound, a record store in which he has been talking to fans about th

e band’s seventh studio album, What We Talk About When We Talk About His Name.

Yang hails from Nanjing, Jiangsu province, and it was there that P.K. 14 was formed nearly 22 y

ears ago before going on to become one of the most influential rock bands in China’s indie rock scene.

“I love record stores,” Yang, 46, says. “Of course listening to music

online through streaming services is incredibly conven

ient, but when I hold cassette tapes or vinyls in my hands I feel this connection with the music.”

The band’s latest album, released on Oct 14, 2018, was recorded in Be

rlin, and in addition to being streamed online, it was distributed on record and cassette.

I didn’t even know I had to wear all white, nor did I prepare

a different pair of shoes for the surface. I was overwhelmed, in an embarrassing way.”

Li played the final match of her stellar career at Wimbledon 2014 before retiring due to a chronic knee injury two months later.

Now enjoying life as a housewife and businesswoman, the two-time Grand Slam singles champion spares no effort to en

sure that China’s new generation of players are better prepared than she was for life as a pro.

Her passion for the sport remains undiminished and shone through at Tuesday’s event at Beijing’s

1123 Junior Tennis Academy, where the 37-year-old hit shots with some young hopefuls and shared insights about life on the tour.

With more international tournaments visiting the country and strong government support and investment, tenni

s has entered the athletic mainstream in China, yet the nation still hasn’t found anyone to assume Li’s throne.

And while it was perhaps the most blatant attempt by the

  ministration to wade into a foreign contest, it was not the only time the President or his tea

m has weighed in on the domestic politics of other countries. From undercutting British Prime Minis

ter Theresa May during a visit to the United Kingdom to calling attention to protests against French President Emm

anuel Macron, Trump has repeatedly sought to influence the internal affairs of the US’s closest allies — in full public view.

  ”It’s not without precedent that United States leaders have said things that affect politics in other countries, but it is without prece

dent for them to do it as brazenly as Trump has done,” said Joseph Nye, the former dean of Harvard Uni

versity’s Kennedy School of Government. “His style and the degree to which he intervenes are both unprecedented.”

  American administrations have long sought to quietly sway the domestic politics of other countries, whether throu

gh covert influence campaigns or military support. But rarely has a US president so eagerly voiced his opinions or

taken steps to influence another country’s internal affairs, particularly among close US allies.

  Instead — even when an administration’s preferred outcome was widely known or assumed — the White Hou

se maintained an officially neutral stance. A country’s internal affairs were off-limits, at least as a matter of stated position.

In the fall, Musk agreed to a court-approved deal with the SEC in

  r to settle charges over his controversial tweet in August about his plans to take Tesla private. The settlem

ent stipulated that Musk receive pre-approval for any social media posts containing information that is “material” to Te

sla shareholders. At the time, the electric carmaker said it would establish a board committee to oversee its CEO’s posts.

  But the SEC has since found fault with Musk’s tweeting. In late February, the commissi

on filed a motion asking a federal judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating the terms of the settlement.

  The SEC cited a tweet from February 19 in which Musk said Tesla

would build 500,000 cars in 2019. He then tweeted a clarifying message that Tesla would be build

ing at an annual rate of 500,000 cars by the end of the year, but would actually only make 400,000 cars in 2019.

  Musk fired back last week, arguing that the tweet didn’t contain material information about Tesla, that he diligent

ly tried to follow the court settlement, and that the SEC’s request is a breach of his constitutional right to free speech.

The cooperation between the museum and Huawei will now

take that to an even higher level, as the new generation of telecoms technology will enrich the ex

perience of visitors to the museum, virtually and in reality, even further. And if conditions become mature in th

e near future, it will not just be visits to the Palace Museum that 5G transforms.

With 5G networks and a smartphone, one will be able to have a consultation with a doctor w

ithout leaving home or give instructions to robotic cleaners to do household chores.

In fact, what the new 5G networks represent is none other than the next technological revolution. There is no reason t

o politicize the arrival of this next-generation technology. Neither is there any reason to demonize what Hu

awei, as one of the world biggest telecoms equipment providers, is doing to usher in this technological revolution.

What is even more dangerous than the harm done to fair competition in the world market is the negative impact the polit

ical barriers some Western countries have put in the way of Huawei will have on the evolution of technology.

Ministers are taking questions from the media about the

 most pressing public issues. This is the second ministers’ “passage interviews” of this year’s two sessions.

Passage interviews got their name because they usually take place on walkways leadi

ng to the main hall of the Great Hall of the People before or after plenary meetings of the National People’s Co

ngress and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

China’s financial sector is striving to solve the financing difficulties

of private enterprises and reducing their costs, said Guo Shuqing, Party secretary of the Peo

ple’s Bank of China and chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.

“The efforts to step up support for private enterprises are closely related to the supply-side

structural reform of the financial sector. We are making adjustments in terms of financial ins

titution, market and product systems,” said Guo during an interview on Tuesday.

China will continue taking new steps in financial opening-up thi

s year, over which Sino-US trade talks are very likely to reach a consensus, Guo added.

Trump vows to sign an executive order requiring colleges

  President Donald Trump vowed Saturday to sign an executive order requiring c

olleges and universities to “support free speech” in order to be eligible for federal research dollars.

  ”If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like

Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak,” Trump said in part of his two-ho

ur long speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland.

  The President did not offer any more details on the order.

  Trump was referring to Hayden Williams, a conservative activist who recently made headlines

after he was allegedly punched in the face at the University of California Berkeley earlier thi

s week. The President brought Williams out as he made the announcement.

  ”Ladies and gentlemen, he took a hard punch in the face for all of us,” Trump said.
