There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa
上海千花网shington Post by a group from the academic, foreign policy, military and business communities, overwhelmingly from
the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.
The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar上海千花网女神会所

nomic enemy or an existential national security threat that must be confronted in every sphere.”上海千花网
It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay
away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact－t

restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are
contributing to it, for, as the open letter mentioned earlier also says, “Efforts to isolate
China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”上海千花网
The wrong crowd cannot represent you, and you are the most unique if you avoid the crowd and turn back now.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China on Friday issued a major aviation safety risk warning over上海千花网女神会所
Cathay Pacific Airways in Hong Kong for a number of security risks and hidden dangers exposed recently.
The administration said some flight personnel of Cathay Pacific had pa
上海千花网rticipated in violent acts and been charged for related crimes, but were not being b
anned from aviation activities. The charges involved passenger information being leaked maliciously.
Such practices have shown there are hidden dangers to aviation上海千花网
safety, and have increased aviation risks from Hong Kong to mainland, the regulator said.
To maintain the order of air transport and protect passenger
上海千花网女神会所s’ safety, the administration imposed three conditions on Cathay Pacific .
From Saturday, Cathay Pacific should ban all staff who have participated and supported ill
egal protests and violent activities in Hong Kong, as well as those with records of extreme behaviors, from flyi上海千花网

From Sunday, the company should share the information of all crew members who fly fl

ivil aviation authorities. Without approval, flights will not be accepted to the mainland, the regulator said.

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b
usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.
