Apple CEO Cook attacked Qualcomm: We haven’t had any

35Early on Jan. 9, Beijing Time, Apple CEO Tim Cook attacked Qualcomm in an interview with CNBC on Tuesd、

ay, suggesting that it is almost impossible for the two companies to reach a settlement amid ongoing legal disputes.

“The problem between us and Qualcomm is that their policies are not licensed. We think it’s illegal.” Second, they have an obligation to provide a patent portfolio on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis. But they didn’t. They charged too much.

stioned the marketing strategy adopted by Qualcomm. The New York Times reported last November that Qualcomm hired Definers Public Affairs to write and disseminate false information about Apple in order to confuse media coverage.

“Companies should not pay people to write false news and publicize it,” Cook said. Things shouldn’t work that way.”

Qualcomm and its CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, have repeatedly said that the company wants an out-of-court settlement with Apple. But news from Apple seems to deny that possibility.

“We haven’t had any reconciliation with them since the third quarter of last year,” Cook said Tuesday. So I’m not sure where that idea came from.

Cook also responded to Apple’s critics Tuesday by saying that Apple’s ecosystem has never been so powerful.

Shanghai hotels no longer provide disposables automatically

Hotels in Shanghai will no longer automatically provide disposable daily necessities such as toothbrush, comb and shaver f

rom July 1 as a regulation on household waste will come into effect in the city on the day, People’s Daily reported.

Around 4.8 billion guests booked into 440,000 hotels in China in 2017, as per data. More than 70 percent o

f soaps are thrown away after being used once, a survey shows. Calculated by weight, each hotel t

hrows away 2.5 kg disposable soaps every day and 440,000 hotels would throw away more than 400,000 tons

of soaps every year. If each ton of soaps costs 20,000 yuan, that would be 8 billion yuan worth of soap.

Apart from soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, shampoo and bath foam are often discarded

after one-time use. It’s not only a waste of money, but also a burden for environment as many articles are non-degradable.

Many travel products that cost just a few hundred yuan

can be very educational and well within the reach of ordinary families, she adds.

One of Ctrip’s most popular museum tours in Shanghai costs just 168 yuan for a child,

and is led by a scholar from Shanghai-based Fudan University’s School of Life Science.

The tour is open to children older than the age of 5 during weekends and exposes them to fossils and specimens.

Ctrip has developed 12 themed study tours, such as scientific ex

ploration, outdoor survival and sports, to meet the growing needs of the market.

Each product has been divided to suit different age groups and learning goals, so c

ustomers can more easily choose the one that best suits their needs, Zhang explains.

For the fast-approaching summer, a series of tours coverin

g both Eastern and Western civilizations in such destinations as Henan province’s Luo

yang and Shaanxi province’s capital, Xi’an, have been developed for children to better understand the Silk Road.

Chen is a professor of immunology at the Yale Sch

ool of Medicine. He was the first scientist to reveal the function

of the PD-L1/PD-1 immune escape pathway in a tumor’s microenvironment.

The programmed death ligand-1/programmed death-1 (PD-L1/PD-1) signaling pathway is a key component of tumor immu

nosuppression, which can inhibit activation of T lymphocytes and enhance immune tolerance of tumor cel

ls, leading to tumor immune escape, according to a study published in January on biomedcentral.com.

Chen, along with four other scientists, was awarded the Warren Alpert Foundation Prize for 2017 for the break

through in tumor immunology, which made him the third Chinese recipient of the prize.

Chen said the research environment in China also has improved in terms of govern

ment funding and talent compared with when he was in China three decades ago.

Restoring a feature-length film by hand can easily tak

e months, if not up to half a year. Hong Kong film director Peter Ho-sun Chan once said the image restoration of his most a

cclaimed work Comrades: Almost a Love Story cost 1.5 million yuan ($224,000), excluding the expenses for restoring the soundtrack.

Faced with hundreds old TV series to restore, Youku was naturally reluctant to throw such a huge sum of money at every project. Their

technicians then turned to artificial intelligence to develop programs that could automatically enhance the tapes.

“If a lengthy manual frame-by-frame restoration might be able to achieve a full score of 10, at least we could turn an ‘unw

atchable’ series into one that achieves a score of 7 to 8 points within a shorter period of time using mass digital techn

iques,” says Jiang Wenfei, a leading technician and head of Youku’s 30-member restoration team.

He estimates that a single episode takes one working day to restore using traditional methods.

Pei explains that correcting the color cast is the most common problem they have to fix. “People’

s faces sometimes look like they are covered by dirt (on film), and their black hair turns green or blue.”
