attached video, Jiang Mou, a student who claimed to be Jinsong No. 4 Primary School declared that he had dropped
out of school because his father and grandparents did not have the duty to support him, and reported that his father and grandfather had
committed illegal acts. The reporter contacted the student’s father, Jiang Jingchun, who told the Beijing News that the suspension of the
child’s schooling was not his own cause. The micro-blog and video was a personal attack and had alerted the police.
Reporters noted that the video originated from Jiang’s mother’s micro-blog account “Dreamboat dreamboat”, which said the video was re
corded a year ago, and the children have been suspended from school for more than a year.
Jiang Mou appeared in the camera without coding or blurring. In the video, Jiang claimed to
be a student of Jinsong No. 4 Primary School in Chaoyang District, Beijing, and showemedical insurance ca

Father-sharing”, a mini interactive program on WeChat platform, recently went viral on social media.
Although the name suggests it is taking the sharing business to a whole new level, the program
is just a promotion campaign by the Guangdong-based furniture maker Oppein.
Similar to a ride-hailing app, the mini program shows different kinds of “fathers” – businessmen, athletes, etc. Users can choose their f
avorite one, just like they select a car. Once the selection is done, a video pops up to explain what exactly is “father-sharing”.
The over 5-minute video focuses on the important role fathers play in raisi
ng a child. Most dads are busy with their work and it’s hard for them to spend time with their c
hildren, and that is where the idea of “father-sharing” business took shape. At the end of the film, the protagonist, a “sh
ared father”, decides to quit his job because he believes family matters, and it cannot be replaced.

Ruan Tianying, deputy general manager of Western-style food chain Houcaller, said t
hat with fastgrowing urbanization in China, lower-tier cities definitely offer great potential.
Houcaller, founded in Xiamen, Fujian province, in 1993, plans to operate about 400 store
s in 100 Chinese cities, with more than two-thirds of them located in lower-tier centers by the end of this year.
Ruan said consumption per capita at Houcaller outlets is about
60 yuan, and about 80 percent of its more than 30 million customers a year are age 36 or younger.
“Opening a restaurant involves different factors, so we cannot reach lower-tier cities as quick
ly as fast-moving consumer goods do,” he said, adding that in these cities, the market still needs to be educa
ted about eating Western-style food, which involves a different dining etiquette from Chinese food.
He also underlined the significance of a strong audience base in the fu
ture. “It’s about developing the audience for Chinese animated films – to create projec
ts that are more popular with broader appeal,” he said. “The most important thing is to tell a good story with i
nteresting characters, in a way that is fresh and new, different and exciting for the audience.”
Minkoff said the Chinese animation industry has grown vigorously over the past dec
ade. “I’ve seen improvements made in the quality of the animation, the production and the filmmaking.”
With the coming of the 5G era and virtual reality, he thinks it opens up new space for creativity and accessibility. “The changes in techno
logy are going to continue to improve and make it possible to make really interesting, different kinds of films, an
d put the tools of filmmaking and animation into more people’s hands, which I think would be very good,” the director said.
Besides the animated adaptation of Wolf Totem, Minkoff revealed to

magnitude earthquake at a depth of 19 kilometers was detected at 12:47pm on Sunday
in Beijing’s Huairou district, according to the China Earthquake Networks Center.
It is the second earthquake in a week that occurred in the capital, following a 2.9-magnitude earthquake in Beijing’s Haidian district last Sunday.
Earthquake experts said minor quakes are normal in the area, as Beijing is located in the earth’s rift zone. There is no need for worry.
Since Beijing is at the junction of the earthquake zone of Shanxi province, the North China Plai
n and Yanshan Mountain, it’s normal for the capital to experience small quakes at a magnitude of two to thre
e, said Sun Shihong, a researcher at the China Earthquake Networks Center, as quoted by Beijing News.
“There will be no major impact on those living or working in the capital,” he said.
Seven rift belts are scattered through the plains in Beijing, mostly lyin
g from the northeast to the southwest. Among those rift belts, active ones are more likely to trigger quakes.

d he hopes that in the near future, two out of every three smartphones sold in China are from Huawei.
The company is also expanding its presence in overseas markets, with it already beco

Huawei knocked Apple Inc off its second-place seat in the second quarter of 2018. The two are
in fierce competition. Currently, Samsung Electronics Co is the largest smartphone vendor in the world.
Yu also said that Huawei is open to selling its 5G modems, a key component of smartphones, to
Apple, as the United States tech giant is having difficulty in finding an appropriate supplier.
In 2018, Huawei shipped over 200 million smartphones and it said earlier that
the Shenzhen-based company is likely to ship about 230 to 250 million smartphones this year.

ugh in legalization. For instance, owners of short-term rental houses will have a lega
l identity, and safety standard of the shared homes will be in accordance with that of hotels.
“However, there is no law to regulate home-sharing services at present, which is the biggest challeng
es we face,” Yang said, adding that the Chinese government has a positive attitude toward the sharing economy.
In October, the State Council released an action plan for 2018-20 to further stimulate domestic consumption.
Market access should be relaxed in several service-related fields, such as tourism, and efforts to boost the develo
pment of short-term rental services, such as rental apartments and guesthouses, are encouraged.
