th Huawei and some features of 5G are very suitable for the rollout of the superfast techn
ology in Europe. For instance, 5G capacity is 20 times that of 4G, and its power consumption 10 times l

Ren said the US technologies are still worth learning in both their depth and width. Many small US companies have super-precision products.
“But in our business (5G), Huawei is at the forefront, though when
it comes to comparison between countries, we are still far behind the United States,”Ren added.
“We will not go through an extreme shortage of supplies. We have made sound preparati
ons,” Ren said, adding that the company’s employees are working overtime to prepare for such situations.
Degree holders turn their backs on mega cities for better lifestyle choices
The population of college graduates is projected to reach a record high this year, turning an
already tough job market into a pressure cooker and intensifying the scramble for talent nationwide.
To many new graduates, mega cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, Guangdong province, are less attractive beca
use of their high cost of living and greater peer pressure in the job market. And so the graduates are looking elsewhere.
The trend is changing the employment landscape in China, but it’s good news for sec

World-renowned architect Ieoh Ming Pei, commonly known as I.M. Pei,
has died at the age of 102 at his home in Manhattan, according to multiple reports on Thursday.
Praised as “one of the most revered architects in the world” by The New York Times, Pei has le

Pei’s modern designs and high-profile projects led him to be considered one of the most high-prof

discussion among Chinese women－and not just at the office. Such discussions can be heard
everywhere, from high school classrooms to fitness studios, beauty salons and department stores.
But the issue is not just cause for concern in China. Obsessing over body shape has also emerged in Western countries over the past decade.
The term “fat talk” was coined by United States anthropologist Mimi Nic
hter and her team of researchers in 1994 after they observed the way girls in middle school
spoke about their body shapes－unexpectedly revealing that they invariably focused on the negatives.
Since then, numerous studies have detailed how pervasive “fat talk” has become among women of all ages.
A study published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly in 2011 found that an “overwhelm
ing majority of women”－93 percent－admitted to discussing the issue, with one-third of them doing so frequently.
