driven breakthroughs. Although among the two, the Huawei

Mate X is more practical than Galaxy Fold because the latter is folded inward to lower the risk of br

eaking apart while falling down, which is not so useful when breaking-glass insurance is popular.

More importantly, the “new” foldable smartphones are hardly of any pr

actical use. Of course, one can easily double the display of the foldable smartphone by un

folding it so it has the size of an iPad, but that’s all. In plain words, the foldable display enables users to combine a tablet an

d a smartphone into one. There might be more uses in the future, but at least not for now.

When touchable displays for smartphones was invented, they did not get popularized until certain apps that suit

ed touchable displays only, such as Fruit Ninjia, gained popularity. Now foldable smartphones faces a similar pr

oblem. Only when apps that suit the foldable smartphones are developed will the phones be truly accepted by the market.

Wu Shuyuan, a senior analyst at Sigmaintell, a company specialized in display analysis

Samsung Fold and Huawei Mate X are both foldable smartphones, but they differ greatly in terms of des

ign. The former is folded inward while the latter is folded outward, and each has its advantages and disadvantages.

Group to map way out of vaccine morassational w s to ens

China has set up a national work group for immunization planning that will suggest ways

to ensure vaccines are safe, the head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday.

The work group, led by a vice-minister of health, will analyze all incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years to find

the root sources of problems, Gao Fu, head of the center, said at a news conference. He didn’t name the minister.

“Vaccines made in China are some of the best in the world,” said Gao, who is also a member of China’s top poli

tical advisory body. “We should have no doubt about the role of vaccines in disease prevention or the quality of vaccines made in China.”

For example, he said, by promoting immunization, some infectious diseases that

once seriously harmed people’s health in China, such as smallpox, have been eliminated.

Hepatitis B once infected more than 10 percent of the population of China, but now only 0.3 p

ercent of children under 5 years old are carriers because of mandatory immunization.

Gao made the comments in light of a series of incidents involving vaccine safety over the past few years.

Huawei strongly denies the claims and is trying har

  d to persuade the world to use its 5G technology and not cave to pressure from Washington.

  ”This is not something that should be decided by politics,” Huawei’s chairman Guo Ping said on Sunday, ahead of the formal start of Mobile World Congress.

  Guo said he was hoping “independent sovereign states” will make “independent decision

s based on their own understanding of the situation and will not just listen to someone else’s order.”

  The US government is trying to convince its allies to shun Huawei equip

ment, which it says could be used by the Chinese government for spying. The company vehemently denies that claim.

  ”Just because you are from a certain country doesn’t mean your equipm

ent is not secure,” Guo said. He added that Huawei must abide by Chinese law and the

laws of countries where it operates. “Huawei will never, and dare not, and cannot violate any regulations,” he said.

  Vice President Mike Pence described Huawei as a “threat.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned other cou

ntries that using Huawei would make it more difficult for the United States to “partner” with them.

structural reform in the financial sector and strengthen the sector’s ability to serve the real economy.

Xi made the remarks when presiding over a group study session of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau Friday afternoon.

The country should keep a fine balance between maintaining growth and forestalling risks and deal with risks in key areas

in a targeted and effective manner, he said, adding that China should deepen opening-up of the financial sector.

Xie Duo, Party secretary and chairman of Silk Road Fund Co., Ltd, briefed on the issue and made suggestions.

portant part of national security, and the financial system is a major fundamental system in the process of economic and social development.

He called on the country to go along with the general

  development trend of relying more on innovation, creation and creativity to foster a change in the structure and quality of financial services.

  When it comes to the support of financially-strained private enterprises, he said that

market laws shall be respected more and that targeted financial services are needed.

  Private firms who are temporarily in difficulties but engage in businesses that match well with the national industrial development plans or focus on the real eco

nomy, possess leading technologies and enjoy an advantage in the market shall be prioritized, he said.

  ”The healthy development of the real economy is the foundation to prevent and defu

se risks,” he said, adding that risk prevention must be based on steady economic growth.

  He said that the counter-cyclical adjustment roles of fiscal and monetary polic

ies must be strengthened so as to ensure the Chinese economy could run at a reasonable growth range.

  ”Risk prevention must be done in a way that can push ahead high-quality economic development,” he said.

In calling for “zero tolerance,” a policy whose definition appe

  ars to vary widely among Catholics, Openibo echoed the calls of dozens of abuse survivors gathered for protests and vigils on the streets of Vatican City this week.

  Wearing glasses and speaking gently though plainly, she addressed the Pope directly as “Brother Francis.” Openibo said she ad

mired his candor and willingness to admit mistakes he made in evaluating the claims of Chilean abuse s

urvivors about a notorious priest who was defrocked last year, and the bishops who covered up his crimes.

  ”Thank you for providing this opportunity for us to check and see whe

re we have acted strangely, ignorantly, secretly and complacently,” she said.

  Openibo also thanked the Pope for allowing her to address the assem

bly of 190 Catholic leaders, 114 of whom are bishops and cardinals from around the wor

ld. About a dozen of the participants are women, most Superiors General of religious orders.

The world looks longingly at a post-Trump eraon is CNN’s intern

  If Europe’s leaders, diplomats and security professionals had a vote in the 2020 US presidential elections, it doesn’t see

m likely they’d give it to President Trump. At least, that’s how it seemed at the 2019 Munich Security Conference.

  Hundreds of dignitaries crammed into tight corridors, moving between the modest meeting halls of Munich’s Bayerischer Hof Hotel.

  The event has grown in recent years. As prime ministers and presidents rub shoulders wit

h CEO’s and policy wonks, conversations straddle global differences and attempt to shape the world order.

  It is an odd, almost old-fashioned mix. It’s rare at global summits these days that repo

On the last night of the trip, the sisters launched into action

  Reem pre-booked the taxi. It was Rawan’s job to retrieve their passports from a bag stored in their parents’ bedroom. Around 2 a.m

., she tip-toed past them as they slept, took the bag with their passports, then snuck back in again to return the bag so as not to raise suspicion.

  ”It’s a really great memory, exciting,” Rawan tells CNN, smiling. Of the two sisters, she‘s the more talkative, taking the lead and occasi

onally looking to her sister for advice on the right word in English. Reem is more reserved. She’s careful about what she says and who to tr

ust. They both have dark, short, curly hair and being small in stature seem much younger than their years.

  When the cab driver arrived at 5 a.m., the sisters say they did something they’d never do

ne before. They pulled on jeans they’d bought in secret and walked out of the house without their abayas.

  It was only after they arrived at Colombo Airport that the sisters booked the flight they’d

meticulously researched online: SriLankan Airlines flight UL892 departing Colombo at 9 a.m., arriving Hong Kong a

t 5:10 p.m. local time. From there, they’d take Cathay Pacific flight CX135 departing at 7:10 p.m. for Melbourne, Australia.

  They had no trouble boarding the plane for the roughly six-hour flight to Hong Kong.

  It was after they arrived in at Hong Kong International Airport that things started to go wrong.

The first led to Schalke being awarded a penalty after Ota

  was adjudged to have handled the ball, reversing the referee’s initial decision.

  The near three minute wait for a verdict from VAR caused frustration not only for the players but also supporters inside the stadium.

  A second penalty was then awarded when VAR confirmed the refe

ree’s call to award another penalty, this time for a foul on Salif Sane by Fernandinho.

  ”It’s a penalty. The second one is a penalty too,” Guardiola told BT Sport. “…And the red card can be a red card.

  ”I trust VAR. I have arguments sometimes but not this time. They are both penalties.”

  Senate investigators want to question a Moscow-based American businessman with longsta

nding ties to President Donald Trump after witnesses told them he could shed light on the President’s commercia

l and personal activities in Russia dating back to the 1990s, multiple sources have told CNN.

  The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is probing allegations of Russian interference in

the 2016 elections, has been keen to speak with David Geovanis for several months, the sources say.

  Geovanis helped organize a 1996 trip to Moscow by Trump, who was in the early stages of pursuing what would become a lo

ng-held goal of building a Trump Tower in the Russian capital, according to multiple media reports at the time.

The UK government, a key US ally on intelligence and security

  is expected to decide this spring which suppliers can provide technology for 5G networks. If it chooses to allow the use of Huawei gear

it could seriously undermine the US campaign against the company and influence other governments that are weighing how to handle the issue.

  The UK Department of Culture, Media and Sport said in a statement earlier this w

eek that it was “looking at a range of options” and that “no decisions have been taken.”

  ’A rigorous, ruthless advancement of China’s interests’

  The RUSI report — written by former diplomat Charles Parton, who spent 22 years working in mai

nland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan — warned that the UK government needed to stay alert for int

erference from the Chinese government across a range of fronts, including politics and research.

  Britain is a particularly appealing target for interference as a close

US ally with a large Chinese ethnic community and an open, advanced economy, Parton said.
