Improved treatment allowing more HIVpositive women to get pregnant study

first_imgVANCOUVER – Lisa Partridge was 14 when she learned she was HIV-positive.The teenager living in Comox, B.C., underwent a tainted blood transfusion when she was an infant in Romania. When she fell terribly ill at age one, her distraught parents searched for a cause until a doctor finally recommended HIV testing.She tested positive. For the next 13 years, she took a daily cocktail of pills that she believed were for a congenital heart defect, from which she also suffers. When her parents told her the truth, she was stunned.“I kind of remember freaking out a little bit and being like, ‘Oh my God,’ ” recalled Partridge, now 27. “But then I did more research into it and it’s not as bad as people thought it was.”Partridge’s story speaks to the enormous medical and social strides that have been made since HIV was first identified in the 1980s. Antiretroviral therapy has suppressed the virus in her system, allowing her to lead a healthy life without fear of transmitting HIV to others, and she has rarely encountered stigma from romantic interests, friends or co-workers.So, her dream of starting a family with her husband has never been in doubt. Their daughter, Adrianna, was born healthy and HIV-free four years ago, and the “rambunctious little thing” has been keeping her mom busy.“I thought I wanted two (kids) and I had one and I think I’m OK with that,” said Partridge with a laugh.New research shows that improved treatment is allowing more Canadian women living with HIV to get pregnant. Nearly 25 per cent of women reported a pregnancy after an HIV diagnosis, says the study from the Canadian HIV Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study, supported by the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.Angela Kaida, a co-author and a Canada research chair in global perspectives on HIV and sexual and reproductive health at Simon Fraser University, said HIV-positive women are living healthier and longer lives when properly treated.“An HIV diagnosis doesn’t preclude you from motherhood and that experience can be healthy, can be happy, can be wonderful and that’s a reality that we didn’t foresee in the earlier days of this epidemic,” she said.In British Columbia, among pregnant women living with HIV who are successfully engaged in treatment, there has not been a single HIV transmission from a mother to child in over 20 years, said Kaida.One major reason for that impressive statistic is the hard work of the Oak Tree Clinic, the Vancouver-based provincial referral centre for women living with HIV and their families, said co-author Kate Salters.“We are really leading the charge in that capacity,” said Salters, who is based at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.The authors analyzed data involving 1,165 women living with HIV. Two-hundred-seventy-eight women reported 492 pregnancies after diagnosis, 61 per cent of which were unintended.The rate at which women with HIV are getting pregnant is lower than that of women without HIV, but the rate of unintended pregnancies is much higher. Among the general population, just 27 per cent of pregnancies are unplanned.Kaida said unintended doesn’t necessarily mean unwanted, but the study does suggest there are gaps in reproductive planning for HIV-positive women. There tends to be an over-reliance on the male condom, which has a relatively high failure rate, she said.Another reason could be that women who are on treatment are healthier and may see an unexpected rebound in their fertility, she said.Partridge, who has been taking medication her entire life, said she’s never noticed any adverse health effects related to her HIV.Right now, her four-year-old daughter just knows her mom takes pills to keep her healthy. Partridge said she and her husband plan to start explaining HIV to Adrianna in the next couple years, so she understands it’s a manageable condition.“There have been kids that grow up thinking, ‘Oh no, mommy or daddy is going to pass away because they’re sick,’ ” said Partridge. “That’s not what we want to instill in her.”— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.last_img read more

New Brunswick judge to deliver verdict Friday in second Oland murder trial

first_imgSAINT JOHN, N.B. — Just over eight years after multi-millionaire Richard Oland was bludgeoned to death in his Saint John office, his only son, Dennis, is about to find out whether he will be judged guilty or not guilty of the grisly crime.Justice Terrence Morrison of the New Brunswick Court of Queen’s Bench will deliver his verdict Friday morning in the second degree murder trial of Dennis Oland, 51, who is charged with beating his father to death on July 6, 2011.It is the second time Oland has waited for a verdict in the sensational case. Oland, a former financial adviser, was charged with killing his father in 2013 and was convicted by a jury in 2015. That verdict was set aside on appeal in 2016 due to an error in the judge’s charge to the jury, and the new trial was ordered.Now, after 44 days of hearings spanning four months, with testimony from 61 witnesses and more than 300 exhibits filed, Oland is about to learn his fate. Saint John police suspected him of the crime from the very beginning, but he has always insisted he had nothing to do with his father’s death.The last time the verdict was read, Oland collapsed, howling in anguish after the jury declared him guilty. There is no jury this time. Due to problems with jury selection last year, the Oland retrial was held before judge alone.The Oland murder case is a family tragedy that has gripped the public from the start. Richard Oland was 69 when his battered and bloody body was discovered on July 7, 2011. He was a prominent businessman in Saint John, worth an estimated $36 million at the time of his death.The Oland family is well known in the Maritimes where its members have been involved in beer-making for generations. The victim was a former vice president of Moosehead Breweries, the oldest, family-owned brewery in Canada.Richard Oland left Moosehead in the early 1980s following a succession dispute but established himself in other enterprises ranging from real estate to trucking. He was killed in the offices of his investment firm, the Far End Corp., located in the heart of the old port city.The trial was told Oland was struck more than 40 times, mostly on the head, with a weapon, or weapons, that had both sharp and blunt edges. He was hit with such force, his skull shattered in several places. Blood from the attack sprayed around the room. No weapon was ever found.“This was a crime of passion. This was personal,” lead Crown prosecutor P.J. Veniot told the court. “This was not a random killing by a crackhead.”Prosecution lawyers acknowledged the case is circumstantial but say Dennis Oland had motive and opportunity. He is the last known person to have seen Richard alive and paid that final visit to his millionaire father at a time when his personal finances were in disarray and he was struggling with debt.“It’s about a father and son, one wealthy and one not,” Veniot said of the case.Dennis Oland’s defence team, led by Toronto lawyer Alan Gold, focused on mistakes by the Saint John Police Department in its investigation of the killing. There were so many errors, especially in protecting and preserving the crime scene, the defence called into question the reliability of evidence.Gold said police officers fell victim to “confirmation bias” having decided early on that Dennis Oland was their suspect. He said police “failed to adequately process the scene” and “overlooked third parties.”“If the pieces don’t fit, you must acquit,” he told the court.Chris Morris, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Study Found that Cyber criminality Is a Growing Concern for Moroccan…

Rabat – With the incredible advances in technology and the unprecedented pace at which Morocco’s companies are adapting to the fast-moving world of global exchanges and interconnections, cyber criminality is rapidly becoming a major concern for Morocco’s giants in IT-related fields, including sectors like industry, services, and communication.According to a recent study, Moroccan firms are now allocating 11 percent of their budgets to the fight against cyber attacks. The study, which explored the “Global State of information security survey,” indicates that Morocco, now a rapidly industrializing country, is no longer on the fringe of the constant and worrying reality of internet-based frauds and crimes.Faced with a rampant surge of cyber attacks that targeted their counterparts in other parts of the world, the majority of Moroccan respondents are reported to have listed the fight against cyber criminality as one of the major priorities of their security plans.  The study found that Moroccan giants’ concern with cyber warfare is most vivid in the amount of money they’ve been investing in the fight against cyber criminality since 2017. In effect, whereas Moroccan firms now spend 11 percent of their budgets on countering internet-based threats, the world’s average is just 4 percent, a figure significantly lower than Morocco’s.For all of their efforts, however, Moroccan companies still consider themselves utterly exposed and defenseless against high-level and very sophisticated software used by highly trained hackers. More than 70 per cent of respondents acknowledged that their current security mechanisms are not up to the standards of the constantly shifting cyber warfare ecosystem, the study revealed. “Moroccan firms are facing new challenges coming from an important pressure due to an increasing digitization. Despite a security budget relatively more significant [than that of other countries], the multiplicity of stakes in a short pan give the impression of an insufficient budget,” said Nabil Kettani, Associate Digital Manager at PwC Morocco. On Kettani’s account, the sophistication of threats and the never-ending emergence of new factors and players render Moroccan giants constantly exposed, easy prey of a ruthlessly competitive IT world. For him, the 11 percent of budget currently allocated to fighting against cyber attacks is considerably insignificant given the nature and context of attacks.The survey further noted the lack of “proactivity” and “maturity” in the governance and defense mechanisms of Morocco’s IT groups. While threats are ubiquitous, companies have developed few or no strategies to counter or even detect whether they’ve been attacked or not.For example, while 70 percent of respondents reported detecting less than 50 attacks in the past twelve months, 10 percent declared zero attack. More worrying, 39 percent declared not being strategically or technically able to identify whether or not they’ve been targeted by cyber criminals. “If the number of detected cyber attacks is less significant in Morocco compared to the rest of the world, it is mainly because the majority of companies can’t detect attacks even when they’ve been targeted,” Nabil Kettani noted, explaining that Moroccan stakeholders in the IT domain have to show more resolve in coming to terms with this rampant but slightly ignored worrying phenomenon.“In general, Moroccan companies only react after incidents have already occurred. They are rarely proactive, and have a long way to go to attain an acceptable level of [strategic] maturity in light of the threats to be countered.” read more

Satirical site The Mire has an alternative angle on the week’s hot topics…New political party now most popular in IrelandMonday, 18 FebruaryA new political party is taking Ireland by storm and is now the most popular party in the country.Little is known about the background of the party or its charismatic young leader Micheál Martin.“Martin is a mysterious figure. Nothing is known about him except that he was a Cabinet Minister between 1997 and 2011 in governments that ruined the country,” our political analyst said.“He’s exactly what the country needs – a fresh start with a fresh face,” he added.Martin’s party is called Fianna Fáil which is believed to be Irish for ‘same shit different day’.Gerry Adams’ teddy bear was senior figure in Provisional IRATuesday, 19 FebruaryA soft toy belonging to Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams was a senior figure in the Provisional IRA.“It’s all the talk in toy town,” a soft toy source said.It is thought that Adams was completely unaware that Ted, a teddy bear, was Officer Commanding of the Belfast Brigade of the IRA during the darkest days of the troubles.Mr Adams himself has consistently denied having been a member of the IRA.“This explains a lot. It was Ted all along. Gerry wasn’t lying. He was blinded by love, just another lovesick fool who trusted his teddy,” the source said.“Gerry was duped. He loved that teddy. He still does.”Today’s marginalised now hopeful of State apology by 2063Wednesday, 20 FebruaryThe State apology to survivors of the Magdalene laundries has offered hope to many of the people currently marginalised in Irish society.“It means a lot to us,” an asylum seeker kept in direct provision said. “We now think we might get a State apology too… by about 2063.”“It will make the institutionalisation worthwhile.”“Some of us might even be alive to hear the apology,” a child in State care said.Elderly people abused in nursing homes skipped lightly with the aid of their zimmer frames.“Our grandchildren could get to hear an apology,” one said as she fell over when a carer took her zimmer frame. “Oh happy day.”Shock as judge in Pistorius case never charged with murderThursday, 21 FebruaryIt would appear that the judge handling the Oscar Pistorius bail hearing has never faced murder charges.Early this morning it emerged that the lead detective in the case Hilton Botha faces seven attempted murder charges from 2011. It now seems that he has been taken off the case.“As things stand we’ve no reason to think that the judge faces murder charges but life is full of surprises,” an observer said.The case has not gone to trial yet. When it does it could feature vampires and zombies.“Anything’s possible mate,” the observer observed. “I hope it rains giant frogs. I like giant frogs.”Poll recommends housing pregnant women togetherFriday, 22 FebruaryA poll has found that pregnant women would be happier housed together in dormitories and given menial work to do.The survey, conducted for an anti-abortion group, said such measures would reduce the likelihood of contemplating suicide and/or having an abortion.“Exhausting work would make the women happier as their minds would be less likely to wander (think),” a spokesman for the group said.“They could do laundry work for example.

Allardyce denies rift with Rooney

first_imgEverton manager Sam Allardyce has denied reports that both himself and Wayne Rooney have had a falling out after the club’s goalless draw against Liverpool last weekendThe former England captain was visibly upset when Allardyce chose to substitute him during the Merseyside derby with Rooney making it clear that he did not approve of such a decision.Afterwards, Allardyce declared that he would have talks with the former Manchester United star to clear the air and explain that he simply wished to put on a fresh pair of legs for the closing minutes of the match.But the former England manager feels that the issue has now been exaggerated by the media.“We’re all right, no problem,” said the 63 year-old, according to Liverpool Echo.“Like there’s no problem with Yannick Bolasie and there’s no problem with Tom Davies. All three of those players I substituted last week.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“You’re asking players to be angels. Stop it. We live in a politically correct world as it is, if somebody stamps their feet we’ll be saying you can’t do that. A reaction from a player when he comes off of disappointment is to be expected.“One would ask him not to do it in the public eye but sometimes that can’t be helped. A man as proud of being an Everton fan as him and playing for Everton, that’s where the reaction came from.”Despite Rooney’s recent struggles in the his new midfield role at Everton, Allardyce revealed that the 32 year-old wishes to continue playing in that position.“It’s the role he wants to play,” added Allardyce.“Our tactical change was for the benefit of the team. It’s a team game and you make a decision on the day to try and help the team to get a victory.”last_img read more

US ready to resume nuclear talks with North Korea amid tensions in

first_imgHowever, increasing display of military aggression by North Korea by numerous missile launches over the past month has raised doubts about the revival of nuclear talks between the two countries. North Korean leader Kim reasoned security threats behind the increasing missile launches saying, “We cannot but develop nonstop super-powerful weapon systems to remove the potential and direct threats to the security of our country that exist in the south,” he said.North Korea has raised strong objections against South Korea importing weapons including the latest F-35 stealth fighters and conducting joint military drills with the US. Experts have claimed the launches could intensify in the coming months if nuclear negotiations do not restart.The joint military exercises, according to North Korea violate Washington’s promise following the Singapore Summit.Diplomatic relations in the Korean peninsula have soared since Pyongyang demanded Seoul to abandon Washington and proceed to conduct joint economic projects that have strained due to the US-imposed sanctions on North Korea.However, US President Donald Trump expressed that he was not worried as the North Korean leader has kept his pledge not to detonate nuclear bombs or test larger missiles that could deliver them to the US mainland.

Google is developing a new operating system called Fuchsia nobody knows

first_imgPink + Purple = Fuchsia. That’s the only description we have of a new operating system from Google. People have been posting updates to code repository Github over the past few days, and it’s had more than a few folks pretty confused. Right now, no one knows what Fuchsia is supposed to do or even what devices it’s for.Some folks have gone digging around in the code, which is publicly viewable, to help suss out some details. So far we know that it’s not using the Linux kernel — the core piece of code that serves as the foundation of Android and Chrome OS. Given that it’s described as “a new operating system,” though, there have been plenty of rumors flying. Some have suspected that it’s an attempt to unify Android and Chrome OS, or it might be the first stab at an OS for the Internet of Things. One of the more likely scenarios, though, is a totally new OS that could compete with Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.According to Fuschia’s documentation, it runs on the Magenta kernel. Magenta is aimed at “modern phones and modern personal computers.” Plus, it has a bunch of features that we normally see in fully-featured operating systems like multiple users, advanced security, and graphics rendering.For now, the developers behind the project have been testing the software on several devices ranging from the Raspberry Pi 3 (which can support light versions of Linux) all the way up to standard Acer laptops.Brian Swetland, one of Fuschia’s developers told The Verge that the intent was to build an open source operating system so they, “might as well start there from the beginning.”last_img read more

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterAdding further weight to several pieces of research commissioned by ILTM Asia Pacific, the behaviour of the Asian millionaire traveller – their motivations, media channels, brand preferences and consumption patterns – were the focus of a seminar presentation to both exhibitors and buyers presented during ILTM’s annual event in Singapore this weekHaving interviewed 903 millionaires across China, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan, Agility Research & Strategy defined millionaires as those whose net worth was greater than $US1m.Key takeaways from the study include:2019 will be another year of strong growth for the luxury travel segment. Particularly encouraging is the willingness to travel among Chinese and Indian millionaires, especially given the number of high-net-worth individuals residing in both countries. Japanese millionaires, on the other hand, are reluctant to travel internationally, a trend that persists despite a stabilising economy and increased inbound flow of tourism. The research indicates that millionaires’ reasons to travel are shifting from status and recognition to personal growth and better quality of life. Increasingly, business trips include a mix of business and leisure. Millionaires plan their trips with the whole family to spend quality time with children and to share their experiences together. There is increased awareness that luxury travel is more than luxury accommodation and transportation. Experience-seeking has become a true motivation to travel. Food experiences remain high on the millionaire’s travel bucket-list, starting with a varied breakfast at the hotel, continuing with a local, authentic and safe lunch to sample the local cuisine and ending with fine dining at a Michelin-rated restaurant. The need for authenticity drives the choice of where to travel: Japan remains a very attractive destination for Asian millionaires because it is seen as safe, diversified and authentic.Shopping, which until a few years ago was cited as the top reason to travel across all 6 markets covered by the study, is becoming less relevant. Asian millionaires’ interests are becoming more sophisticated: city tours, diving, beach, food, amusement parks, spas and hot springs are some of the most mentioned reasons to travel. We expect to see in the next few years an increase of interest in art & cultural travel, on the tail of the opening of major museums and cultural institutions throughout the region.Online and digital resources are gaining traction as a channel to search for information and a way to research and book travel. At the same time, traditional channels such as a recommendation from friends and family, as well as TV and magazines are still very relevant in shaping and influencing the travel decisions of millionaires.Over 85% of millionaires surveyed in China consider a hotel’s eco-friendliness important.Alison Gilmore, Portfolio Director ILTM & Lifestyle Portfolios, commented: “The presentations we lined up for ILTM Asia Pacific have focused on three key subject matters, and this one analyses the upcoming trends of the luxury traveller in the region. With more than 6m millionaires in the APAC region – a double-digit growth in 2018 – this is a powerhouse market which continues to grow with sustained optimism. However, at the same time, we can also see that their travel habits are changing. As a leader in the luxury travel sector, we will continue to support every one of our events with information, trends and facts from thought leaders in this sector to help all our participants [obtain] the knowledge that will drive their business objectives through the next decade.”Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

Some progress in ongoing battle to move petrol storage tanks

first_imgAn inter-ministerial committee tasked with oversight of the gradual relocation of fuel storage facilities from Larnaca’s coastline to Vasiliko, in the Limassol district, said it has made some progress following its first meeting held last Friday.Moving the facilities has been a long-standing demand by Larnaca residents, due to concerns over safety and health.The inter-ministerial panel, convening for the first time last week, said that two petroleum companies, having secured the relevant permits, have begun construction works at Vassiliko on expanding current facilities or building new ones.According to an announcement, two other fuel companies have chosen the interim solution – having their own facilities temporarily hosted on property owned by other companies currently based in Vasiliko.The signing of agreements and binding contracts was expected soon, the statement added.Regarding liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) facilities, the committee heard that actions are underway for licensing the four companies engaged in the business.Present at the meeting were the mayors of Larnaca and Livadia, with observer status, although they are interested parties.In June of this year, the energy ministry announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the government and six private companies for the removal of the fuel storage facilities at Larnaca to Vassiliko.Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said that even though the municipalities from the areas in question were not party to the MoU that he submitted to the cabinet, the plan would go ahead and a timetable had been fixed with a deadline of December 31, 2019 for moving the liquid fuels, and the creation of LPG facilities by December 31, 2020.Earlier, Larnaca municipality had rejected a third draft of the MoU on the relocation of the oil and gas firms from the district by 2020 and said it was no longer willing to engage in further discussions as long as there was no progress.At the time, Larnaca mayor Andreas Vyras explained that they rejected the MoU over a clause giving the right to any signatory to opt out of the deal if they wished to, by giving a month’s written notice. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Cuadra/Science; Data source: Skoglund et al (Nature 2016) Back in 1985 archaeologist Peter Bellwood of the Australian National University in Canberra proposed that the Lapita had roots in farming cultures in East Asia Based on dating of Lapita sites he proposed that they moved rapidly from mainland China to Taiwan and the Philippines then out across the open ocean from Vanuatu to Samoa covering 24300 kilometers in about 300 years This “express train” picture fit with linguists’ models in which Austronesian languages spread from East Asia into Oceania and were distinct from Papuan languages in Melanesia But other researchers argued that the DNA of living Polynesians showed evidence that their Lapita ancestors had lingered in Melanesia mixing with the locals and slowly spreading eastward This so-called “slow boat” model had prevailed in recent years In the new study an international team extracted ancient DNA from the skeletons of four ancient women from the islands of Vanuatu and Tonga dated to 2300 to 3100 years ago including three directly associated with the Lapita culture The team sequenced the DNA at up to 231000 positions across the genomes of each skeleton and compared the sequences to those of nearly 800 present-day people from 83 populations in East Asia and Oceania All the evidence from different disciplines has come together … the genomics has clinched it Peter Bellwood archaeologist Australian National University in Canberra The four women were from a distinct population that had no evidence of mixing with the ancestors of people living in Papua New Guinea today as the team reports in Nature this week Instead the women shared all their ancestry with the indigenous Atayal people in Taiwan and the Kankanaey people in the Philippines “The Lapita have no evidence for Papuan ancestry” says co-author Pontus Skoglund a postdoc in David Reich’s lab at Harvard Medical School in Boston That suggests that their ancestors rode the fast train sweeping all the way to Oceania without mixing with Melanesians on the way Polynesians today do carry a significant amount of Melanesian DNA But that DNA is in relatively long unbroken chunks the analyses found suggesting that it was incorporated into Polynesians’ genomes recently perhaps about 500 to 2500 years ago after the Lapita period The team also noted that the Polynesian X chromosome has less Melanesian DNA than the other nuclear chromosomes Because X chromosomes are more likely to be inherited from mothers (sons get only a Y from their fathers) that suggests that much of the Melanesian DNA came through the male line as Melanesian men interbred with Polynesian women “The female ancestors of modern-day Oceanians are mainly Lapita whereas their male ancestors include Papuans” Skoglund says Bellwood is pleased “All the evidence from different disciplines has come together” he says By getting DNA from the ancient Polynesians themselves “the genomics has clinched it” For more coverage on human migration visit our Human Evolution topic page Beijing: Chinese and US officials met face-to-face Thursday in an attempt to resolve a dispute over technology that has taken the world’s two largest economies the closest they’ve ever come to a trade war File photo of Chinese president Xi Jinping Reuters A high-powered US delegation arrived in Beijing for talks with Chinese officials aimed at defusing the tensions though analysts say they appear unlikely to yield a breakthrough given the two sides’ intensifying rivalry in strategic technologies where China lags behind the US US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is leading the group which includes Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer Liu He President Xi Jinping’s top economic adviser headed the Chinese side in the talks which are expected to end Friday The dispute has deepened as China has stepped up efforts to overtake western industry leaders in advanced technologies especially for semiconductors the silicon brains required to run smartphones connected cars cloud computing and artificial intelligence Under Xi a program known as "Made in China 2025" aims to make China a tech superpower by advancing development of industries that in addition to semiconductors includes artificial intelligence pharmaceuticals and electric vehicles The plan mostly involves subsidizing Chinese firms But it also requires foreign companies to provide key details about their technologies to Chinese partners US President Donald Trump is seeking to cut the chronic US trade deficit by $100 billion and gain concessions over the policies that foreign companies say force them to share technology in order to gain market access His administration has threatened to impose new tariffs on roughly $150 billion in Chinese goods That prompted China to announce its own tariffs on US goods and Beijing also looks unlikely to cede any ground on its strategic blueprint for technology "The Made in China 2025 industrial policy concerns China’s long-term development plan so the overall direction won’t change at all" said Yu Miaojie professor at Peking University’s National School of Development Yu says China would rather cut the trade deficit by importing high-tech products from the US that are currently tightly restricted The state-run Global Times newspaper said Thursday in a commentary that it’s "our sovereign right to develop high-tech industry and it is connected to the quality of rejuvenation of the Chinese nation It will not be abandoned due to external pressure" Washington’s recent decision to ban Chinese telecom gear maker ZTE from importing US components in a sanctions-related case drove home to Beijing its costly vulnerability to foreign sources for advanced microchips The "Made in China 2025" plan calls for domestic producers to supply 70 percent of the country’s chip demand The Trump administration’s efforts may actually spur China to ramp up efforts to develop its domestic industry as it strives to fulfill Xi’s vision said Jian-Hong Lin an analyst at research firm TrendForce China now consumes nearly 60 percent of the world’s semiconductors but supplies only about 16 percent according to PWC The country spends more than $200 billion a year on foreign-made semiconductors which in 2015 surpassed crude oil as the country’s biggest import Experts say Chinese chipmakers are five years behind their US and Asian rivals and that increasingly high technological hurdles and a meager talent pool are hindering the effort to catch up with dominant US One was intoxicated"Quan said proactively reaching out to communities at greater risk of drowning is a proven method of reducing disproportionate drowning rates Congress
