HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chip

ipsets like Kirin, which has been used in Huawei’s high-end smartphones. In addition to server chips, th

e company has also developed chips for base stations, basebands and chipsets powered by artificial intelligence.

“From chips to its self-developed operating system, Huawei has

long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the abil

ity to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing s

tocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.

The image, which showed a ringlike structure with a da

ark central region-the black hole’s shadow-depicted the black hole at the heart of Messier 87, a massive, distant gala

xy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster. It is 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the sun.

It was one example of the role that Tianma has played in international coordinated

observations. Its super sensitivity has made its observations useful as a reference by which other parti

cipants in the network can adjust their data, according to the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory.

“Tianma elevated the image quality of the EAVN, by about 50 percent, making a great co

ntribution to the research on extreme objects in the universe, such as black holes,” Shen said.

hina Eastern asks Boeing for 737 MAX compensation

hina Eastern Airlines confirmed to news outlet The Paper on Tuesday it has officially lodged claims with Boeing for losses cause

d by the 737 MAX’s grounding and late delivery, adding the two companies will stay in communication over the issue.

The move makes China Eastern Airlines the first airline in China to ask Boeing for compensation, as the 737 M

AX suffered worldwide suspensions after two deadly crashes which took more than 300 lives in six months.

Fourteen Boeing 737 MAX jets under China Eastern Airlines have been grounded since March 11.

Boeing stressed that it refused to talk about any communications with its clients.

Bloomberg cited people with knowledge of the matter last Wednesday, saying

Commenting on the suggestion of quickly shifting sou

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.

Yet the US expends huge amounts of its resources just to m

 maintain its monetary hegemony and thus ensure its financial sector offers higher pay and retur

n on investment compared with the real economy sectors, which helps it to maintain its advantage in at

tracting talents and capital. This in turn prompts the authorities to introduce more favorable policies and regulations for

the enterprises based in the US, which is essentially a combination of representative democracy and market eco

nomy. Under such circumstances, how can the US promote sustainable reindustrialization?

Besides, reindustrialization is not possible without rebuilding or strengthening infrastructure facilities. And

although the US leader has been claiming to implement a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan-and even made it on

e of the pillars of his “Make America Great Again” campaign-not much has come of it.

I cannot believe this could happen during the world cha

championships,” said Guan, also President of the Chinese Taekwondo Federation. “This is the first time I have seen such kind of thing.”

Zheng, who had beaten Walkden three times in a row, took a dominant lead of 20-10 in the closin

g stages of the women’s over 73km category final, but the referee disqualified Zheng alleging she had committed 10 fouls during the bout.

Wakden then secured her third successive world taekwondo title by the referee’s punitive declaration.

“Our athlete has worked very hard for this gold medal and it was taken away so easily by the referee. This is very dirty.”

Guan said that the Chinese team will launch an appeal to the World Taekw

ondo, the sport’s world governing body, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

“We will definitely appeal to the decision,” he said. “And this refe

ree’s qualification should be stripped of. This scandal is a serious damage to our sport.”

At 65 meters in diameter, the radio telescope Tianma-or

 heavenly horse-located in the suburban Songjiang district, is the largest omnibearing movable telescope in Asia an

d is ranked third in the world in comprehensive performance. It began providing celestial observations in 2012.

While Tianma was not directly involved in the observations that led to the black hole image, its ability to see other phenome

na in the universe on certain wavelengths, contributed to the precise calibration of the final data for the image, s

cientists in Shanghai said. Tianma is part of the East Asia Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network, or EAVN.

Shen Zhiqiang, head of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ S

hanghai Astronomical Observatory and a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) inter

This came a month after six other cities were also warned over similar reasons on April 19.
