Wu Hongwei, a researcher of China-Russia relation

s at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said bilateral cooperation plays a prominent role

in guaranteeing world peace and security at a time when the global situation is clouded by tensions and turmoil.

The two countries share the same position in promoting a more stable and multipolar world, Wu said, adding that they ha

ve sent such signals through supporting and coordinating with each other on international occasions.

China would rather rely on market-oriented forces to determine the renminbi’s value than defend its currency by di

pping into its $3 trillion foreign exchange reserves amid trade disagreements, analysts said.

The United States Treasury announced on Wednesday that it could not label Chin

a as a “currency manipulator” after Washington monitored the recent performance of the RMB.

If those in Washington wonder why their European allies

re reluctant to answer their calls for excluding Huawei from their 5G networks, Ren had an answer: “For every base station

site, Huawei can save the Europeans 10,000 euros ($11,192). Instead of following the US, they have communicated with us closely”.

Huawei is not ZTE. And is unlikely to become the kind of vulnera

ble hostage the latter has been. The US tactic will not work second time around.ice-Premier Han Z

The China-US trade disputes have significantly influe

enced the renminbi’s performance, said Wang Shengzu, co-head of Investment Strategy Group Asia Goldman Sachs.

But the currency is unlikely to slip out of a reasonable range, assuming there is no big shock from the trade talks, Wang said.

As a sound base for a stable renminbi, “the Chinese economy has shown sig

ns of bouncing up, shown by the faster-than-expected growth of industrial output, ret

ail sales, and credit in the first quarter, and this means that economic activity is improving with supportive pol

icies”, said Wang.Liu Shiyu, China’s former top securities regulator, was under investigation for alleged violations of

the law, according to a statement Sunday from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.

Pam Marsden, head of production for Sony Pictures Anim

mation, also considers characterization as a crucial element to developing successful animated works.

The studio’s 2018 smash hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won a string of awards, including the 91st Os

cars’ best animated feature, thanks to its unique look that combines computer animation and traditional hand-drawn techniques.

Speaking of developing a formula for making hit movies, Marsden says: “It begin

s with characters. If you can create a character that is beloved, charming and appealing, and touches the hearts of an audie

nce, you are well on your way to creating a successful animated movie that can cross all borders.”

If Hollywood’s experience leads it to focus primarily on the characters they create, Japanese director Hay

ato Date says he believes that voice-over dialogue is another important factor affecting the success of any animated work.

Best known for the manga-adapted animated TV series Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden, Date r

eveals that he has developed a particular method which gathers all the voice artists together to record the scenes.

But if the stock-image platform doesn’t get authoriza

ion but still asks for compensation by resorting to litigation, I think such behavior may be an alleged fraud,” he said.

The core of the problem lies in whether stock-image providers get authorization from copyright owners, he added.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal researcher who specializes in intellectual p

roperty cases at the China University of Political Science and Law, agreed, but said copyri

ght owners and institutes given copyright authorization should respect this right and not abuse it for gain.

He said stock-image companies need to make authorization a priority in their opera

tions and pay more effort to finding a balance between commercial interest and public interest.

The litigation right that is to safeguard copyrights must not be abused, he added.

The male turtle, thought to be more than 100 years

old, has poor sperm motility and its genitals were damaged. Since it could not naturally impr

egnate the female, experts had undertaken four insemination procedures since 2015.

“It’s a disastrous loss for the protection of the species,” said Liu Nonglin, chief engineer of the Chinese Association of Zoolog

ical Gardens. “The experts had researched former insemination surgeries, consulted colleagues and made the best

surgery and rescue plan. The team even experimented on three male and two female large-sized Asian turtles usi

ng the same surgical procedures. But the tragedy happened even though the surgery was well planned.”

More than 1 meter in length and weighing more than 100 kilograms, Yangtze giant softshell turtles are the world’s largest freshw

ater turtles. Besides the one male left in China, two other animals, whose sex is unknown, have been observed in the wild in Vietnam.

“Artificial insemination surgery for the turtle requires procedures

such as anesthesia, blood sampling and sperm extraction,” Wen Cheng, a turtle expert with

International Union for Conservation of Nature, was quoted by Lifeweek.com.cn as saying.
