Huawei Accused of Sanction-Busting in North Korea, Spying in Czech Republic in Explosive Reports

Monday was another bad day for Chinese tech giant Huawei.  The Washington Post dropped a major bombshell on the company regarding alleged (highly-illegal) dealings in North Korea, and Czech Radio added another involving activities in their own country.  The news adds fresh and serious doubts about the company’s potential western footprint, and bolster’s Washington’s case that the giant is a threat to American national security and users’ privacy.  President Trump met tech CEOs in the White House Monday, partially to discuss what to do about it.

China Just Launched Their Nasdaq Version of a Stock Exchange – STAR Market

Chinese regulators have just approved a new tech-heavy board of 25 companies for the STAR Market.  This new STAR Market is modeled on the U.S.-based NASDAQ composite reflecting the ruling Communist Party’s desire to keep private capital within its own country. It allows mid-sized Chinese investors to invest in Chinese tech companies that until recently would have been listed on Wall Street, London Stock Exchange or Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

What Matt Drudge Predicted is Now Becoming a Reality After 20 years

Matt Drudge gave a speech before the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in 1998. He was already deemed an internet leader in both news and aggregated news distribution. His Drudge Report challenged the ethos of the newspaper society, which was just the beginning of dynamic revolutionary change in the news world order. The Drudge Report made friends, added enemies, created new futures and helped forced everyone in the industry to change many times over in order just to stay relevant.

Cease Fire at the G20: Trump and Xi Declare Truce on Trade

It’s said that nothing ever really gets done at the G20, which is currently meeting in Osaka, Japan.  Nineteen member countries and the European Union agreed to a new deal to tackle climate change.  Guess who was the lone holdout.  President Trump was harshly criticized, at home and abroad, for praising Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, who ordered the killing of Washington Post columnist (who had legal residency in the U.S.) Jamal Khashoggi.  There was one cautiously positive development to emerge from the summit, however.  Trump and Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, agreed to restart talks and temporarily de-escalate the trade war.

How the Celebrity Blacklist Works in China – It’s a Career Death Sentence

The National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) is in charge of controlling everything related to the press, publications, radios, movies, and televisions in China. For example, all foreign movies that want to enter the Chinese market would need its approval first, during which scenes containing sex, violence, and Chinese politics are usually deleted– the reason why many foreign movies in China are a bit shorter than the international version. It exists to make sure that Chinese citizens are getting the information that the government deems appropriate.

Has Oil Bottomed? If Demand is So Low Due to China, Why isn’t Copper Showing Any of the Same Patterns?

If oil demand is down so much due to the China trade war and tariffs, how come the more economically sensitive materials, such as copper, have not felt the same economic downward price effects?

Today China has asked it’s refineries to hold off on placing new orders for crude oil imports in anticipation of lower prices once and if demand stalls further. The Chinese buyers have cut off purchases of U.S. crude oil as the trade dispute between Beijing and Washington continues.

Up to a Million Protest Hong Kong Extradition Bill

Hundreds of thousands, and perhaps up to one million people jammed the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday to protest amendments by the Legislative Council, which would allow the extradition of those accused of crimes to mainland China. Opponents believe the bill will allow the communist regime to target political opponents, whether living in or visiting Hong Kong, and threaten the city’s longstanding autonomy. Beijing is said to want the bill “urgently,” and the LegCo pledged to press on regardless.

Google, Chip Manufacturers Join Huawei Ban

Tech giant Google suspended all business requiring the transfer of hardware, software, and technical services with Chinese firm Huawei, Reuters reported on Sunday. New Huawei smartphones will lose access to popular Google apps, like YouTube and Maps, as well as security updates. Those publicly available, via open source licensing, would not appear to be affected. The move comes days after the Trump administration blacklisted Huawei, prohibiting American firms from trading with the company without a license.

Trump Declares Emergency, Blacklists Huawei

President Trump used an executive order Wednesday to declare a national emergency over threats to American technology. The move prohibits American companies from using telecom services solely owned, controlled, or directed by a foreign adversary. The order also “delegates authority to the Secretary of Commerce,” Wilbur Ross, “to prohibit transactions posing an unacceptable risk to the national security of the United States.” The move clears the way for a ban on Huawei, China’s controversial telecom giant.

North Korea: Is a Deal Still Possible?

It’s never good when North Korea is in the news. On Thursday, the Hermit Kingdom launched two short-range ballistic missiles in to the Sea of Japan. The pair were similar to one the DPRK test-fired on Friday. Later that day, American authorities seized a coal ship used by North Korea for sanction-busting.

The missile tests were the first by North Korea in more than 500 days. Yet, the self-imposed moratorium on long-range testing remains. The state media, whose prophesies of mass annihilation and lakes of fire normally rival that of any shortwave radio preacher, assured the world that nothing was amiss.

US and China Trade: The Stakes Are Rising

On Sunday, President Trump tweeted an escalation to his trade war with China, warning tariffs would more than double, from 10% to 25%. By Tuesday, stocks were sent tumbling, and companies scrambling. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 472 points Tuesday, it’s worst day in four months. Grain futures hit their lowest mark in more than 40 years. Companies weren’t given much in the way of warning, with tariffs due to increase Friday. They’ll have to decide whether to eat the tariffs themselves or pass the costs on to consumers.

Trump’s escalation comes amid a five-month truce between the world’s two biggest economies, and as the U.S. and China appeared close to a deal. However, Administration officials say China has been backtracking from earlier commitments. In a Washington Post op-ed, former chief strategist Steve Bannon urged the president to “follow his instincts and not soften his stance against the greatest existential threat ever faced by the United States.” Trade advisor Peter Navarro, and others, see no deal as preferable to any deal, and some fear the president will cave, again.

“Perfect” Chinese Student On the Run, Caught Three Years After Killing His Mother

“This doesn’t look like you. Please show me your real identity document.”

“There’s nothing more to say. I’ll go with you.”

This was the conversation that happened last Sunday (April 21) at Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport, before the police arrested Wu Xieyu, accused of murdering his own mother three years ago and on the run ever since. According to the police, at the time of being caught, Xieyu carried with him more than 30 fake ID cards that he bought online. He was allegedly at the airport sending off the manager at the night club where he worked. It remains unclear if he wanted to be arrested when he decided to enter a high-security airport.

Source Code of Bilibili Leaked on Github

Today has been a special day for Chinese coders. According to Sina News, the source code of Bilibili, a famous Chinese ACG video sharing website, had been fully leaked on Github. Before being taken down, it had been forked more than 6,000 times, which means basically it is impossible to stop the spread of the code now. People are posting concerns on Zhihu (a Quora-like Chinese website) and Sina Weibo over potential cyber attacks on Bilibili over the next few days.

One of China’s Richest Men Missing for More Than 100 Days

Four years ago, the Guinness World Record for the longest human-made phrase was set by the employees of Tiens Group in France. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the CEO of the Chinese multinational company, Li Jinyuan, decided to invite all his 6,400 employees to France for a short trip. It evoked lots of discussions in China with people posting online expressing their envy.

Now four years later, Li Jinyuan has been missing for more than 100 days and the company is facing charges of commercial fraud, murdering, Multi-level Marketing (MLM) that is illegal in China, and more.
