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

Zhang Ying, 32, a white-collar worker in Beijing, is a jewelry lover. She prefers watching lives
treaming videos via some cross-border e-commerce platforms to buy foreign products in her spare time.
“Pictorial representations are not exactly the right way to purchase commodities online, I had som
e problems as the products did not match up to the expectations promised on the onlaine platform advertisements.”
Zhang said daigou (overseas shoppers who buy foreign products for customers on the Chinese mainland) can dem
onstrate details of products like jewelry in accordance with what the buyer wants through the livestreaming method.
“I can take a good look at the design, material, color, size and even every angle of the jewelry. It feels like that I can pick out the
products on my own. After comparing various necklaces and bracelets, I can decide which one fits me the best.”
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.

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

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

Iron Emmett’s lads were well at it in the yard, blunted swords slamming into shields and ringing against one another.
Jon stopped to watch a moment as Horse pressed Hop-Robin back toward the well. Horse had the makings of a
good fighter, he decided. He was strong and getting stronger, and his instincts were sound. Hop-Robin was another tale. His clubfoot was bad enough, but he was
afraid of getting hit as well. Perhaps we can make a steward of him. The fight ended abruptly, with Hop-Robin on the ground.
“Well fought,” Jon said to Horse, “but you drop your shield too low when pressing an attack. You will want to correct that, or it is like to get you killed.”
“Yes, m’lord. I’ll keep it higher next time.” Horse pulled Hop-Robin to his feet, and the smaller boy made a clumsy bow.
A few of Stannis’s knights were sparring on the far side of the yard. King’s men in one corner and queen’s men in another,
Jon did not fail to note, but only a few. It’s too cold for most of them. As he strode past them, a booming voice called after him. “BOY! YOU THERE! BOY!”
Just beyond the ticket booth Father had had painted on awall in bright red letters the question:
DO YOU KNOW WHICH IS THE MOSTDANGEROUS ANIMAL IN THE ZOO?
An arrow pointed to a small curtain. There were so manyeager, curious hands
that pulled at the curtain that we had toreplace it regularly. Behind it was a mirror.
But I learned at my expense that Father believed there wasanother animal even more dangerous than us, and one thatwas extremely common, too,
found on every continent, in everyhabitat: the redoubtable species Animalus anthropomorphicus,the animal as seen through human eyes. We’ve all met
one,perhaps even owned one. It is an animal that is “cute”,”friendly”, “loving”, “devoted”, “merry”, “under-standing”.
Not Sly. Haggon would have called it abomination, but Varamyr had often slipped inside her skin as she was being mounted by One Eye. He did not want to spend his
new life as a bitch, though, not unless he
had no other choice. Stalker might suit him better, the younger male … though One Eye was larger and fiercer, and it was One Eye who took Sly whenever she went into heat.
