The 38-year-old says his father once grazed his flock in this area of northwest China’s X
injiang Uygur autonomous region, which he described as being “barren and more like a desert back in the day”.
The Tarim River runs 1,321 kilometers along the rim of the barren Tarim Basin, a sparsely populated area about the size of Poland.
Excessive irrigation in the past used up too much water, which caused the lower 400 km of t
he Tarim River to run dry in the early 1970s and pushed surrounding trees to the verge of disappearance.
Born in the village of Yengisu by the dried-up river, Ahmat never saw the water as a child. Sa

“He had an extremely despicable motive, used an extremely cruel manner to carry out the cri

The court pointed out that Huang had planned to carry out the crime for a long time, visiting
several kindergartens and primary schools in Shanghai and Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong pro

President Xi Jinping inspected a company that manufactures high-tech magnetic m
aterials as he kicked off an inspection trip to East China’s Jiangxi province on Monday.
Xi learned about the business operations of the JL MAG Rare-Earth Co Ltd, based in Ganzhou, which speciali
zes in rare earth permanent magnetic materials, as well as the development of the rare earth sector in the city.
Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Huawei, said on Tuesday that the US governm
ent’s 90-day extension “doesn’t mean much”, adding that the company was ready to deal with the ban.
Ren’s comments came after the US Commerce Department said on Monday that it gave Hu
awei a 90-day license to purchase US technologies to maintain existing networks and provide software upd
ates to existing Huawei handsets. That marks a delay of the ban on US technology exports to Huawei.
th Huawei and some features of 5G are very suitable for the rollout of the superfast techn
ology in Europe. For instance, 5G capacity is 20 times that of 4G, and its power consumption 10 times l
ess. “We also use materials that will not corrode for decades, and these characteristics are very suitable for Europe.”
Ren said the US technologies are still worth learning in both their depth and width. Many small US companies have super-precision products.
“But in our business (5G), Huawei is at the forefront, though when
it comes to comparison between countries, we are still far behind the United States,”Ren added.
“We will not go through an extreme shortage of supplies. We have made sound preparati
ons,” Ren said, adding that the company’s employees are working overtime to prepare for such situations.
rcing to countries other than China under the tariff specter, the FDRA said there had been com
panies moving away, but “footwear is a very capital-intensive industry, with years of planning required to m
ake sourcing decisions, and companies cannot simply move factories to adjust to these changes”.
Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowme
nt for International Peace, said the footwear industry’s complaints are justifiable, albeit a little late.
“Since their issues do not involve critical technologies, the
re might be room for the administration to offer a degree of relief,” Paal told China Daily.

The US Department of Homeland Security issued an alert warning on Monday that Chinese-made drones may be se
nding sensitive flight data back to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there.
According to a report by CNN, the alert warns companies and organizations that the US gov
ernment has “strong concerns about any technology product that takes American data into the territory of an au
thoritarian state that permits its intelligence services to have unfettered access to that data.”
The report does not name any specific manufacturers, but nearly 80 percent of the
drones used in the US and Canada come from DJI, according to industry analysis.
d overseas to see wildlife at least twice a year. Asia, Africa and Europe are the top three destinations.
About 60 percent of interviewees said they would refuse to take part in tours that migh
t interrupt the normal life of animals in the wild or be harmful to them, even if such a tour might be exclusive.
More than 70 percent of tourists said they are glad to choose tours wit
h higher prices and which take more time in order to be more in touch with the wildlife.
“Wildlife watching has attracted millions of tourists annually and many travelers are driven by the affection of animals. Ho
wever, some activities on such tours have had an adverse impact on the wildlife,” Zhao said.
He said hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are taken away from natural habitats, forced into cap
tivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.

The growth outlook in all major developed economies and most developin
g regions has weakened due to a confluence of both domestic and external factors, the report said.
Following an expansion of 3 percent in 2018, world gross product growth is now projected to moderat
e to 2.7 percent in 2019 and 2.9 percent in 2020, reflecting a downward revision from the forecasts released in January.
The report identifies several downside risks that could trigger a sharper or more prolonged growth slowdown, potentially infl
icting significant damage on development progress. Those risks include a further escalation in trade te
nsions, a sudden deterioration in financial conditions, and the accelerating effects of climate change.
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.
President Xi Jinping encouraged the Chinese people to be prepared for a new Long March to
