Chinese tech heavyweight Lenovo Group Ltd saw its profit more than double in the quarter which ended in June, on the back of
a record high personal computer market share and strong performance in its internet data center business.yabo2018体育乌托邦
Its profit hit $162 million compared with an average estimate of $154 millio
n by nine analysts, according to data service provider Refinitiv. Its revenue rose to $yabo2018体育乌托邦
12.51 billion, marking year-on-year growth for the eighth consecutive quarter.
Yang Yuanqing, chairman of Lenovo, said the Beijing-based company has cemented its positiyabo2018体育乌托邦品茶微信
on as the world’s largest PC maker, grabbing a record 24.9 percent market share in the quarter.
“We have seen robust growth in market segments such as gaming PCs, and light
yabo2018体育乌托邦PCs, with related revenue jumping by about 30 percent year-on-year,” said Yang.
According to him, the company also performed quite well in Japan after it acquired a 5
1 percent stake in Japanese technology firm Fujitsu Ltd’s personal computer business.yabo2018体育乌托邦
“Our enhanced operational efficiency also contributed to our better profit
s,” Yang said. The company’s gross profit margin hit 16.4 percent in the quarter.
Lenovo’s strong performance came as global PC market rebounded from April toyabo2018体育乌托邦品茶微信
June. Year-on-year growth during the quarter reached 4.4 percent, which was nota
bly higher than expected as the easing of supply shortages combined with looming trade tensions which increased theyabo2018体育乌托邦
demand, according to data from the market research company International Data Corp.
“Supply for Intel’s processors improved markedly during the quarter, allowing most PC vendyabo2018体育乌托邦品茶微信
ors to fulfill old orders while also shipping a healthy supply of new PCs into the channels,” Jitesh Ub
rani, research manager for IDC’s Mobile Device Trackers, said in a research note.

Economists have said they think the policy stance likely will be loosened again in Augus
yabo2018体育419t to support economic growth. As a result, growth is expected to be stronger in the next two months.
“In the current environment, we believe economic growth is likely to be strong only when there is clear policy support, like
in the first quarter and in June,” said Song Yu, chief China economist at Beijing Gao Hua Securities.yabo2018体育419品茶微信
Goldman Sachs research showed on Friday that by the end of June, the official general government sp
yabo2018体育419ending balance recorded a deficit of 1.6 percent of GDP, the largest half-year deficit since 2011. The gr
eater than expected half-year deficit is from the combined effects of tax and fee cuts and more public spending.
Despite some fiscal challenges and rising debt levels, the government will continue to step up fiscal suppoyabo2018体育419

term, said Wang Shengzu, co-head of Investment Strategy Group Asia at Goldman Sachs.yabo2018体育419品茶微信

The company experienced a slowdown in the online advertising secyabo2018体育419

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in Nyabo2018体育千花坊
anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.
Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure theyyabo2018体育千花坊品茶微信
can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.
In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on
following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.yabo2018体育千花坊
Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout
yabo2018体育千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.
When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice
.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e
choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they myabo2018体育千花坊
ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.
The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoyyabo2018体育千花坊品茶微信
the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.
This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tranyabo2018体育千花坊
smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.
“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own headyabo2018体育千花坊品茶微信
sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve
ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

yabo2018体育乌托邦女神会所This shouldn’t be surprising — they’re designed to be symbols, after all. B

Nixon said, “The meeting between the leaders of China and the United States is to seek the normalization of relations bet

yabo2018体育419In Sanlitun, the heart of Beijing’s nightlife hub, at 11 pm on a sum

The shop used to be a bar in a street reputed for its late-night carousing.
yabo2018体育419品茶微信The night China Daily visited the shop, and alley that connects the north
ern and southern ends of Sanlitun Village was teeming with people, while in the 700-squ
are-meter bookstore with about 20,000 books, a couple of young people were sitting next to their laptops open.yabo2018体育419
“We come here quite often,” says one of them, who lives nearby. “It’s th
e place I use most for finishing work each day. This is the only quiet place I can find arou
yabo2018体育419品茶微信nd here where I do not need to worry about closing time, and you have the air conditioning in summer, too.”
Another of those in the shop, Zhao Xiaohan of Xiamen, Fujian province, who was on holi
day in Beijing, says: “I accidentally found this place while I was looking for a perch after a long day of traveyabo2018体育419品茶微信
l. It’s a relaxing place, but many young people come in here after dinner time because it’s the summer holidays.”
yabo2018体育419In addition to stocking the latest titles and best-sellers, Sanlian Taofen sells books in ancien
t Chinese and many works in English. To attract customers in an area that is popular with tourists it al
so sells souvenirs and ornaments representative of traditional Chinese culture.yabo2018体育419品茶微信

“Watching live performances gives a more immersive experience than TV or the internet. Observing the details of ons

yabo2018体育龙凤419hat she thinks it’s a waste not to visit a theater when Beijing provides much more resources than her hometown.

is that they have more free time and are yet to shoulder the pressures of life.yabo2018体育龙凤419
