Taiwan-based TSMC, the world’s biggest contract chipm

aker, said its shipments to Huawei have not been affected by the US

ban on the latter’s access to US components, Reuters reported on Thursday.

On Monday, the US Department of Commerce issued a 90-day

temporary license, effective until Aug 19, allowing “specific limited engagement in tra

nsactions involving the export, reexport, and transfer of items” to Huawei.

Some analysts said the US moves against Huawei will lead to strong support for the

unlisted Chinese firm as Huawei is working hard to offset the fallout of the restrictions.

employment, especially for college students, is of great

importance for economic development and social stability.

To better secure the employment of

graduates, government at all levels issued policies to redu

ce discriminatory practices these new

graduates may encounter when hunting for a job.

For example, the Ministry of Human

Resource and Social Security said in February that employees are not allowed to def

ine positions based on gender or to ask for a female job-seekers’ marital status, to protect women’ rights in the job market.

Also, the Ministry of Education required colleges to reinforce campus recruitment activ

ities, prohibiting discriminatory information concerning gender, nationality and college levels.

According to the ministry, the number of college graduates is projected to reach a record high of 8.34 million this year, up by 140,000 from 2018.

Beijing still open to talks, but will not bow to tariffs: China Daily

ith China retaliating in kind to the United States hiking the existing “punitive” tariffs on Chinese go

ods, the world was not left long in suspense wondering how Beijing would react to Washington putt

ing the kibosh on what was evidently an impending trade deal in such a high-handed manner.

With hindsight, it is easy to see that despite the product

ive efforts of the two negotiating teams, such a scenario was perhaps inevitable.

The US administration has made it clear on more than one occasion

that it wants to halt China‘s development in its tracks and therefore it is questionable whether it

has any real interest in striking a trade deal that is not tilted entirely to its advantage.

While Beijing, on its part, has consistently responded to Washin

gton’s attempts to turn the screws on it by each time giving it a sharp rap across the knuckles.

China is the only country that lists forecasting earthquakes as a government responsibility.

Considering our limited knowledge about earthquakes, the forecasting work has to be based on observatio

n. However, the weak signals from underground are often disrupted by electromagnetic interference, he said.

He said that in cooperation with the government of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, his admini

stration has established a research institute to accelerate the development of new app

aratuses for underground detection that could reduce interference from human activity.

“We will also explore carrying out observational experiments in wel

ls from hundred of meters to 1,000 meters deep, and through scientific drilling that will penetr

ate active earthquake faults to gain more information about underground structures,” he said.

Li Qiang, director of the Shenzhou Institute’s postgradua

raduate department, said China has trained hundreds of foreign space engineers since the mid-1990s.

However, those training sessions were mostly occasional, often accompanied a satellite export deal, and were mainly focu

sed on ground-based control and applications of satellites rather than their design and production, the director said.

“However, in recent years, along with the expansion in our cooperation in the space indu

stry with other countries, many of our foreign partners voiced their hopes that we could hold some sort of syst

ematic training programs to help them create their own spacecraft designers and technicians,” he said.

Therefore, he said, “We decided to open a two-year postgraduate prog

ram and then sent the message to countries having space cooperation with China.”

As the state was looking for innovative ways to tackle

 the Asian carp problem, Kentucky awarded Yu its first-ever fish house contract in fall last year. Under the deal, Yu’s Kentucky Fish

Center will buy Asian carp at a guaranteed price, with part of this coming from a government subsidy.

All fish at the center will be sold by auction to buyers in the US or overseas. S

ales will be overseen by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Kentucky provided a secured $734,000 fixed-assets loan to help the center begin oper

ating. Additional incentives will be awarded every year based on performance.

The center needs to reach certain goals: to remove 2.26 million kg of Asian

carp from Kentucky waters this year and increase that amount gradually to just ov

er 9 million kg annually by 2024. If those goals are met, the loan will be waived.

The entire program will cost Kentucky about $4 million.
