Chinese tech heavyweight Lenovo Group Ltd saw its profit more than double in the quarter which ended in June, on the back of
a record high personal computer market share and strong performance in its internet data center business.上海乌托邦
Its profit hit $162 million compared with an average estimate of $154 millio
n by nine analysts, according to data service provider Refinitiv. Its revenue rose to $上海乌托邦
12.51 billion, marking year-on-year growth for the eighth consecutive quarter.
Yang Yuanqing, chairman of Lenovo, said the Beijing-based company has cemented its positi上海乌托邦品茶微信
on as the world’s largest PC maker, grabbing a record 24.9 percent market share in the quarter.
“We have seen robust growth in market segments such as gaming PCs, and light
上海乌托邦PCs, with related revenue jumping by about 30 percent year-on-year,” said Yang.
According to him, the company also performed quite well in Japan after it acquired a 5
1 percent stake in Japanese technology firm Fujitsu Ltd’s personal computer business.上海乌托邦
“Our enhanced operational efficiency also contributed to our better profit
s,” Yang said. The company’s gross profit margin hit 16.4 percent in the quarter.
Lenovo’s strong performance came as global PC market rebounded from April to上海乌托邦品茶微信
June. Year-on-year growth during the quarter reached 4.4 percent, which was nota
bly higher than expected as the easing of supply shortages combined with looming trade tensions which increased the上海乌托邦
demand, according to data from the market research company International Data Corp.
“Supply for Intel’s processors improved markedly during the quarter, allowing most PC vend上海乌托邦品茶微信

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree
上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.
In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦
nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.
“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers
上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in
ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com
munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦
According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi
bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.
Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h
上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”
The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w
ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦
“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w
orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l
ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C
hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦Editor‘s note: China Radio International recently published a commentary on its website exposing t
he hypocrisy of US government’s criticism of the human rights situation in other countries. Excerpts below:
The United States has long used human rights as a means of putting pressure on other co上海乌托邦品茶微信
untries. Whenever it is unhappy with some country, it will publish a human rights report of that country.
上海乌托邦However, it should reflect on its own human rights situation before criticizing other c
ountries. For many nonwhite Americans, the “American Dream” is actually an “Am
erican nightmare” as white supremacy and incitement to hatred have become so rampant in the country.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Data from Mapping Police Violence show that there are hundreds of police shootings of African-Americans in the US each year, many fatal.
上海乌托邦In international politics, US politicians turn a blind eye to their own country’s bad human rights record, while issuing irres
ponsible comments about human rights in other countries. Recently they even attacked China’s policies in the Xin
jiang Uygur and Tibet autonomous regions, accusing China of restricting religious freedom.
Are US politicians sure that they are not blaming themselves? Their words are like jokes that aren’t funny.上海乌托邦品茶微信
How can US politicians blame other countries? They should look at their own problems first.
上海乌托邦The US has widening social gaps, worsening sec
urity conditions, worse gender inequality and racial discrimination.
It is time the US cured its own diseases first.上海乌托邦
For all its self-promotion that it is a defender of human rights, the US
上海乌托邦品茶微信is unable, or unwilling, to address the issue of racial discrimination.Until it can talk of i
ts own human rights situation with a clear conscience, it is in no position to criticize other countries.

China plans to provide more public exercise facilities and further promote awareness of sport, a senior official said on Friday.上海乌托邦女神会所
Rapid urbanization and growing public enthusiasm for athletic events mean public sport facilities can no longer meet dem

The sports area per capita in China increased from 1.46 squa上海乌托邦

developed countries, with the figure in the United States at 16 sq m, and that in Japan 19 sq m.
上海乌托邦女神会所Lang said public access to sport stadiums and playgrounds at educational institutions w

The association said China’s national flower should meet four criteria for consideration: it shoul上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦女神会所With a 4,000-year history in China, the peony is widely seen around the country. Boasting bright colors and an elegant app
earance, it is called “king of the flowers” in China and has become an auspicious symbol.
“The peony was the national flower in the Tang Dynasty (618-907),” said Dong Yan, an offi上海乌托邦女神会所

used as a food and traditional Chinese herb, so it also has strong economic value.”
be further strengthened. And the two sides should expedite their efforts to promote youth exchanges and people-to-people engagement in o
rder to deepen mutual understanding. It is good to see that the two governments have decided to take the 2019 China-Japan Youth Exc上海乌托邦
上海乌托邦hange Promotion Year as an opportunity to initiate senior-level cultural exchanges to bring the two peoples closer.
As for security, the two countries should constructively manage and control their conflicts and dive
rgences through talks, strengthen dialogue in diplomacy and security, and build a constructive bila上海乌托邦品茶微信
teral security relationship. In fact, the series of exchanges, meetings, dialogues and negotiations held between the two countries, their defense m
inistries and militaries since last year is conducive to building constructive security relations.
上海乌托邦品茶微信It is necessary for the two sides to abide by the consensuses they have reached and properly handle sensitiv
e issues. Amicable Sino-Japanese ties have obvious spillover effects. And the two sides have enough reasons to strengthen e
xchanges, coordination and cooperation on international and regional issues to jointly cope with global and regional ch
allenges, and contribute to global governance to make it more equitable and rational. Only in this way can the two si上海乌托邦
des base their relationship on coordination, not competition, and create a brighter future for themselves.
The two sides may encounter some practical difficulties and problems in forging a peaceful, friendly region in the ne上海乌托邦品茶微信
w era. But they should always keep the bigger picture in mind and refer to the consensuses they have reached to resolve th
上海乌托邦eir disputes and differences. After all, a peaceful, cooperative and friendly East China Sea is in the interest of both sides.
The continuous improvement of China-Japan ties is subject to not only external factors, but also how some key, sensitive issu

o-Japanese ties in the new era, although both sides’ moves reflect their overlapping strategic benefits, at least for now.
