eople, holding posts ranging from community-level government official to deputy manager of a local bank.

His political beliefs as a Party member supported him during the war period and in serving th

e people in peacetime, with indifference to fame and wealth, Zhang told Xinhua News Agency. He said he has been

fulfilling the oath that he had sworn when joining the Party, and that he doesn’t deserve special recognition for his a

chievements, since what he did was negligible compared with those who sacrificed their lives in the war. His left leg

was amputated seven years ago because of an illness, but Zhang stood up again on his prosthesis.

He said he doesn’t want to be a burden for others, and wants his children to work wholeheartedly for the Party and the people.

that enterprises in any country will not disregard their own interests and blindly follow other countries’ “political command”.

“Most countries have always been highly alert to US government acts of

resorting to state power to crack down on companies in other countries, disrupt m

arkets and obstruct mutually beneficial cooperation between other countries,” Lu said.

But the positive development is also accompanied by some concerns. A string of Japanese

carriers, including NTT Docomo, said they were also considering delaying the launch of Huawei’s new sma

rtphones. Their hesitance is due to uncertainty about Google’s previous announcement that it would restrict H

uawei’s access to updates of the Android operating system in compliance with a US ban.

“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget

her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle

agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.

Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi

viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes-meat, fish, vegetables and soup-for everyone to share.

Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.

The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo

graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi

nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.

The topic “Hotpot can be eaten by one person” has attracted about 56 million hits and more than 17,000 posts.

Cai Yani started dining alone in 2012, just after she quit her job as a maga

zine editor. During her period without work, she ate alone, but she discovered that ma

ny restaurants, especially those serving stir-fry, were reluctant to receive solo diners.

In response, Cai started filming her Solo Dining series. Each episode lasts about three minute

s and features one meal made by one person. The short series has attracted millions of views on Youku, a vid

eo-sharing platform in China, and its social media account has more than 1 million followers.

She believes the growing popularity of her films, as well as many othe

r videos and publications dedicated to eating alone, is not only due to the rising number

of singletons in China, but also the growing stress of living in big cities that pushes people to seek comfort in food.

The report pointed out that the weakness of AI research in China lies in the insuffi
