bstacles to those that Asian and Latin American platforms previously had to overcome, including a

lack of reliable payment systems, low trust between buyers and sellers, and logistics and deliv

ry bottlenecks. But the experience of other regions shows that these shortcomings can be addressed over time.

Internet regulations must not be disruptive

The bigger risk to these platforms stems from the inevitable and necessary increase in regulation of the internet arou

nd the world. In particular, diverse national regulatory regimes may inadvertently or deliberately disrupt or bloc

k the international development of e-commerce ecosystems, hurting lower-income countries in the process. Avo

iding the creation of such unintended obstacles should therefore be a high priority for the international community.

tory as a mirror, and combining their personal ideals with the dream of national rejuvenation, Hu Xianzhong, a senior re

searcher at the China Youth and Children Research Center, said in an article published by China Youth Daily on Sunday.

Since the movement began nearly a century ago, the country’s youth

has been collectively marching with the times and the people under the leadership of the C

PC-whether in periods of revolution, construction, or in the nation’s campaign of reform and openingup, Hu said.

As the centenary of the movement draws near, a good understanding of its history will make yout

hs know more about why their futures are closely connected with the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation so that

they will find their niches and play bigger roles in the country’s socialist cause, he added.

Chen Yuhao, a postgraduate student at the U

niversity of International Business and Economics, said the spirit of patriotism, progress, democracy and s

cience is still the core value of Chinese youth, and should be upheld and carried forward in the new era.

  India’s richest man just helped his cash-strapped younger brother avoid months in prison by paying off debts worth tens of millions of dollars.

  The gesture by Mukesh Ambani to bail out his brother, Anil, is the latest twist in a sibling saga that has gripped India’s t

elecommunications industry. A price war started by Mukesh in 2016 nearly put Anil out of business a year later.

  Last month, India’s top court ordered Anil Ambani and his company, Reliance Communications, to pay a 5.5 billion rupe

es ($80 million) debt to Swedish mobile firm Ericsson (ERIC) by Wednesday or face three months in jail.

  Facebook, the world’s largest social media site, will soon take aim against anti-vaxe

rs. The company will start by lowering the ranking of groups and pages that spread misinformation about vacc

inations in its News Feed and Search options, a representative said Wednesday.

  ”These Groups and Pages will not be included in recommendations or in predictions when you type into Search,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s vice pres

ident of global policy management, said in a statement. She added that when ads that include misinformation about va

ccinations are found, “we will reject them.” Ad accounts that continue to violate company policies may even be disabled.

  Facebook won’t be disabling personal accounts that post misinformation about vaccines, a spokeswoman told CNN on backgrou

nd. General misinformation doesn’t violate the company’s community standards. If something blatantly violates th

e standards, it will be removed, but that will not happen to individual posts containing misinformation.

  Bickert said the company is also “exploring ways to share educational informa

tion about vaccines,” possibly by adding educational information to inaccurate posts.

  the country — that’s what Clinton did,” Graham said, saying Trump should now challenge the Democrats to “fix problems.”

  There was more than an echo of Clintonian rhetoric in Trump’s public statement

on Tuesday, delivered as he signed an executive order tackling an epidemic of suicide among veterans.

  ”Instead of doing infrastructure, instead of doing health care, instead of doing so many things that they should be doing, th

ey want to play games,” Trump said of his Democratic opponents. “It’s too bad because I’d rather see them do legislation.”

  The Clinton parallel may not be exact, however.

  At the start of his impeachment drama in 1998, Clinton was far more popular than Tru

mp, with his approval rating measured by Gallup at 58%. He never went below 60% in the brutal year that

followed, hit 73% after he was impeached and settled at 66% after he was acquitted in a Senate trial.

  According to the Quinnipiac poll, Trump is at 38% approval. And while a recent Wall Street Jour

nal/NBC poll had him at 46%, his numbers rarely move beyond a narrow range, with favorability well below a majority of voters.

On Sunday, China’s tech giant Huawei officially unveiled Huawei Mate X, its first foldable smar

tphone. That came just five days after Galaxy Fold, the first foldable smartphone of Samsung. But fol

dables might not be the future of smartphones, comment two experts with China Daily’s Zhang Zhouxiang:

Yuan Xuanhua, a renowned industrial designer with 20 years’ experience in smartphone engineering

Some media outlets have described foldable smartphones with so many sweet w

ords as if they were a technological breakthrough. Unfortunately, they are not. The te

chnology of foldable displays were invented as early as 20 years ago in a quite easy way — By replacing the glass th

at supports the display with foldable organic materials. Such displays can not only fold, but also curve.

Concerning the foldable screens of Huawei and Samsung, they have better displays with higher density rate and cl

earer, more stable display performance, but in essence they are still using the same technology. Therefore, f

oldable smartphones are more like a consumption-led innovation rather than a technology
