As maverick Trump launches trade offensive, China should be well prepared

I believe that the US will not drag the situation to the worst since that would damage the US itself and hasten the fall of its hegemony. To stop making reckless decisions is the best choice for Trump.

China helps cure Africa's endemic malaria

With the success story of the battle against malaria in Comoros, the Chinese experts are now embarking on another milestone: helping other African countries eliminate the disease.

Tsai is wrong on Korean summit comparison

While deceiving the Taiwan people, Tsai and the DPP had better not truly regard themselves as the legal government of a sovereign state. If Tsai considers herself a president, then she will not ever meet mainland leaders or leaders of other countries. Perhaps she can play the game with the pathetically small number of countries with whom Taiwan has so-called "diplomatic" ties.

Marx shows another world is possible

Perhaps the single most important message from Marx is that "another world is possible." Why possible? First, we obviously have had other worlds before. And, second, we have no choice but for yet another and better, given the truth about capitalism! Workers of the world unite!

In recruiting talent, cities must think outside the box

My point is simple: Lavish subsidies can lure talent, but they are insufficient to make people stay. Chinese cities need to have a more holistic take and provide better public services to make newcomers want to stay, rather than wasting public resources on cutthroat competition.

Wisdom of Chinese, Western medicines

Mah's story made me think maybe the battle between Chinese medicine and Western medicine is not only about medicine but also about humans' exploration of the world. Science is undoubtedly a powerful way to understand the world. But it is not the only way, and it is not adequate to explain everything. When more people realize this, the battle will die down for sure.

Message to Taiwan 'independence' fantasists

If the DPP still refuses to admit that there is only one China in the world, the Chinese mainland will not spare Taiwan's feelings anymore. By dreaming of independence, Taiwan is caught in its own trap. It is Taiwan itself that has been oppressing Taiwan.

Hopes for Kim-Trump summit, but big divide

The will of the two Koreas displayed at their summit was a breath of fresh air for the Korean Peninsula, Northeast Asia and the entire world. The Kim-Moon meeting was only a warm-up and the key meeting is Kim and Trump. It is hoped that all sides can extend this positive trend and eventually help realize long-term peace on the peninsula.
