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.

Xiang Ligang, director-general of telecom industry association Information Consu

mption Alliance, said TSMC’s commitment to continue shipping products is of strate

While eating alone is hardly a novel experience in many

“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget

her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle

agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.

Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi

viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes-meat, fish, vegetables and soup-for everyone to share.

Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.

The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo

graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi

nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.

For many solo diners, the most trying times are Chinese festiv

Late last year, Pu Kunhong decided to conduct a test. On New Year’s Eve, the 21-year-o

ld visited a well-known hotpot chain on his own to see how people would react.

Inside the packed restaurant, diners sat around tables, dropping meat, fish

balls and vegetables into boiling cauldrons and chatting happily amid the rising steam.

Pu sat opposite a large stuffed teddy bear-placed at his table by the management to ac

t as a companion-and quietly added slices of raw beef to the broth bubbling in his cauldron.

Providing large stuffed toys as companions is just one wa

y the restaurant attempts to put solo diners at ease and reduce the stigma of eating out alone.

“The stuffed bear brought a sense of warmth and security, and I didn’t feel embarrassed eating on my own,” Pu said.

The new water-hydrogen engine, produced by the Chin

Youngman Automobile Group Co, has been the subject of visits from top city officials

and been praised by Zhang Wenshen, Party chief in Nanyang, according to the report.

Following the report, the engine sparked discussion and debate, because it runs contrary to the principles of physics.

Nanyang’s bureau of industry and information technology said the report made mis

takes and conveyed incorrect information, ultimately misleading readers, Beijing News reported.

The bureau highlighted that the project is still being tested and has yet to gain approval from industrial

authorities, adding that the production company’s head has been required to fully explain the technology behind the engine.

Pang Qingnian, 61, chairman of the China Yongman Automobile Group, said the project was established in 2006, and that the e

ngines can convert water into hydrogen and then use the hydrogen to generate electricity, which then fuels vehicles.

There are plenty of realistic options for resolution between the two co

instance, he suggested, the US and China should take the lead in forging a global cyber accord.

“While additional tariffs from both US and China

will weigh on China’s growth outlook, we expect policy measures to offset so
