According to the latest information from the Tibet Himal

alaya Expedition Co, by Thursday morning, 12 climbers from the company and 21 mou

ntaineering guides successfully reached the summit of the mountain from the northern slope.

Tsering Samdrub, general manger of the company, said with significa

nt training long for 43 days, 12 Chinese climbers made it to the summit.

“The weather on Thursday was so nice. Thanks to this, the climbers were all in very good

condition,” said Tsering Samdrub, commander-in-chief of ongoing spring climbing.

“Hampered by weather factors this year, the final climbing period to the summit was later than the previous year, and clim

bers from different countries all take this opportunity to complete their climbing,” said Samdrub.

Samdrub also said more than 200 climbers are huddled together, which has led to one-two hour postponements of climbing times.

Lu’s comment followed US Treasury Secretary Steven Mn

nuchin’s comments on Wednesday that he is hopeful that both countries can “go back to the table”.

Lu told a Foreign Ministry news briefing that China has reiterated that it

s door is always open, but negotiations must be meaningful and conducted with sincerity.

“A mutually beneficial deal must be based on mutual respect, equality and win-win outcomes,” he said.

The US, out of political purposes, has used its state power to groundlessly suppress Chinese te

ch firms, which has severely affected the global development and cooperation in science and technology, he said.

It has also damaged the interests of businesses of relevant countri

es and will not win the approval and support of the international society, he added.

“Apparently it will not help create a good atmosphere for the negotiations,” he said.

The resident of Chengdu, Sichuan province, is a popular vlogge

and his reviews of digital appliances have won him more than 124,000 fans on social media.

He had never eaten hotpot alone before. However, he happened to be in

Beijing on business and when he heard the restaurant offered stuffed toys as co

mpanions for solo diners he decided to visit and produce a vlog so his fans would know how it felt.

Knowing that a large number of unattached people often

spend festivals alone, Pu hoped his vlog would help them enjoy their solitude.

Even though he was the only solo diner in the restaurant, Pu said he didn’t feel at all awk

ward eating with a toy companion. The vlog showed him eating casually, occasionally scrolling through his phone, an

d having a video chat with his family. The restaurant was full of diners, but no one gave him a second glance.

“Overall, it was very enjoyable; the only thing was that I can’t eat too much so I only ordered a small amount of food,” he said.

In addition, a thread on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like comments platfor

m, titled “eating alone” contains 226,000 posts and has garnered 290 million hits.

In 2017, WithEating Magazine, a Chinese foodie journal, started its Eati

ng Alone channel on Bilibili, a popular video-sharing website. To date, the channel, wh

ich has 52 episodes explaining how to prepare meals for one, has attracted more than 200 million hits.

In February, the magazine published a book of the same name, listing 65 recipes for dishes ranging fr

om desserts to foreign cuisine, such as roasted ribs, the Korean favorite bibimbap and seafood curry.

To many people’s surprise, it became a best-seller. “We didn’t expect the book to sell so we

Before his retirement, Wang irrigated farmland for de

nd for decades and witnessed local farmers’ continuous battles against sandstorms.

“It didn’t just feel like a black storm, it was as if the whole desert was approachi

ng,” recalls Liu Conghui, a writer who was born, and still lives, near the farm Wang once worked.

As the menacing sandstorms made the area increasingly inhospitable, Liu’s whole community planned to up sticks.

To restore the local ecosystem, the Chinese government launched

a 10.7 billion yuan ($1.6 billion) project in 2001. A set of measures were adopted such as sav

ing water, converting farmland into grassland, providing treatment for dry riverways and building dams. In addition to t

hose measures, industrial and agricultural use of water in cities and counties along the river was limited.

Over the past two decades, Xinjiang has infused 7.7 billion cubic meters of water into

the dry trunk stream of the lower reaches of the Tarim River in 19 rounds of water diversion.

be why despite the US government blacklisting Huawei, Re

Ren on Tuesday expressed continued willingness to collaborate with US partners in the future.

Ren’s confidence lies in Huawei’s capacity to serve its customer

s under “any circumstances”, and has the support of its growing clientele at home and abroad.

“Last week, in public bidding by China Mobile, we won contracts to build 5G networks for 37 of the 40 cities,” Ren dis

closed. “Our capacity for mass production is enormous, and will not drop much with US restrictions”.

The otherwise low-profile Huawei leader made no secret about his pride

in his company’s technologies: “Huawei’s 5G will absolutely not be affected. When it c

omes to 5G technologies, others will definitely not catch up in two or three years”.

That was why the confident Ren said the 90-day exemption Washington declared on Monday was dispensable.

Recent monetary and fiscal stimulus measures are expe

The US recently signaled its intention to impose additional tariffs on the European Union, primarily targeted at the

aircraft and food industries. It is in addition to the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs that are already in place.

Amid unresolved trade disputes and higher tariffs, the projected growth of world tra

The report warns that “the impact of a spiral of additional tariffs and retalia
