d an innovation platform that creates an enabling ecosystem with tailor-made programs and services for its members.

As entrepreneurs, it is important to stay curious and learn to understand the nuances of different cultures, Roee says.

“So, the more you understand people, the more you can empathize and the more you might end up with meaningful relationships.”

In addition, sales and marketing efforts of hair transplant sp

t specialists have deepened concerns of consumers troubled by hair loss. From 2016 to 20

17, firms specializing in hair transplants saw an average annual sales growth of over 100 percent.

Beijing-based Yonghe Hair Transplant has 33 outlets nationwide. Its advertisem

ents mark broadcasts of popular TV series in China, and adorn walls of several subway stations.

“With the development of hair transplant and hair care technologies, and amid growing anxiety of consumers suffering ha

ir loss, strategic marketing is helping hair transplant agencies to post continuous growth,” Wang said.

Stress-inducing lifestyles are creating demand for other kinds of products as well. A large n

umber of young Chinese consumers reportedly suffer from insomnia. About 75 percent of those born aft

er 1990 have a habit of staying up late. Inadequate sleep makes them use medicine like sleeping pills, like in the United States.

There, the incidence rate of insomnia is around 32 percent to 50 per

cent, and the sleeping economy has created businesses worth tens of billions of dollars.

But Friday’s outrage in New Zealand was more about the

  cancer of race hate than guns. It is an evil that has been with us for long, but it seems the cancer is now metastatic-it is spreading. It is be

ing spread by white, right-wing bigots who see conspiracies around every corner, and by religious zealots that are found in most religions.

  In the summer of 2011, an anti-Islamic right-wing extremist killed 77 people in Norway in a planned terrorist attack.

  Recent years have seen a surge in white supremacist violence in the United States. Every terrorist killing in the US last ye

ar was linked to right-wing extremism, according to the New York-based Anti-Defamation League.

  And let us not forget the part social media have played in providing a platform for a

ll racists and terrorists to spread their evil bile and distorted views of the world. Terrorism experts will say Ne

w Zealand was probably a soft target. Most of its police officers are not armed and the threat of terrorism is not high. Bu

t terrorist attacks have also taken place in countries where police officers are heavily armed and security is very tight.

Beware craze for computer programming traininga training

district, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, has seen the scale of its computer programming class increase expon

entially from dozens of students to tens of thousands in three years. China Daily reporter Li Yang comments:

In early 2017, the State Council sought to encourage computer program

ming education in primary and middle schools so as to boost the development of artifi

cial intelligence. Which fired the starting gun for training agencies to scramble to provide such education while mo

st schools were still waiting for the Education Ministry’s not-yet-ready deployment.

The popularity of computer programming training is not limited to Hangzho

u, it has become the most robust growth point in the extracurricular training market nationwide.

Yet a worrying phenomenon is that many trainees have just bid far

ewell to their toddler phase, and are too young to be learning programming skills.

It is noteworthy that, in most cases, it is parents who seat the minors behind monitors for ho

urs, irrespective of whether the children have developed the necessary capability to study programming.

Pelosi urges members to back resolution terminating

  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged members of Congress on Wednesday to bac

k a resolution halting the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump to fund a border wall.

  Pelosi’s call to action comes as the White House plows ahead on transferring federal funds not contingent on Trump’s declara

tion toward building a wall along the southern border, despite already facing several lawsuits.

  ”I write to invite all Members of Congress to cosponsor Congressman Joaquin Castro’s priv

ileged resolution … to terminate this emergency declaration using the termination mechanism within the

National Emergencies Act,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to her colleagues.

  ”All Members take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi added. “The P

resident’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the const

itutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated. We have a solemn responsibility to up

hold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.”
