Meng Wanzhou, who is under house arrest at her Vancouver mansion, next appears in court on May 8 ahead of an extradition hearing, in a process that could take years. Canada says the United States is obliged to help, given that the U.S. arrest warrant triggered the crisis with Beijing. U.S. negotiators have rejected Chinese proposals to include the Huawei issue in their current trade deal discussions. Trump has previously suggested the charges against her could be dropped if that would help the trade talks. Officials in Ottawa have not forgotten that the president blew up last year’s Group of Seven summit in Canada by describing Trudeau as very dishonest and weak.

[December 3   Rise of China’s technology: 5G fearmongering?   ]

china 5g

5G development has become a bogeyman for the Trump administration .

If “big data” is the new oil of the digital era, then 5G is the next set of pipes that will deliver it – and unlike previous generations, China is determined to own more of this infrastructure, giving it mastery of its own industrial future. This not only sets it up a competitive technology clash, it also raises a number of national security issues for Western governments concerned about the integrity of 5G networks.
Phones, tablets, computers – devices such as home appliances, cars, dog collars, and many more are getting connected via the Internet of Things. 5G, which stands for “fifth generation,” is an upcoming standard for mobile telecommunications service. 5G technology will utilize a higher-frequency band of the wireless spectrum called millimeter wave that allows data to be transferred much more rapidly than the lower-frequency band dedicated to 4G. The downside is that millimeter wave signals don’t travel as far: The new 5G networks will require many more (albeit smaller) antennas spaced closer together than previous wireless generations. 5G home broadband, is essentially broadband without the cable. Of course, 5G is also much faster.

“Basically, power, money and politics is going east,” Younger said. “That’s a new political reality we need to adjust to.”

He said 5G reliance on Chinese technology was something Britain needed to discuss, though a bigger issue was the likely Chinese future dominance of emerging technologies.

Younger said he had been struck by President Xi Jinping’s “made in China” ambitions and that Beijing could within decades dominate all of the key emerging technologies, particularly artificial intelligence, synthetic biology and genetics.

“This is something we really need to think about,” Younger said. “The future of knowledge is in play.” The head the Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6, Alex Younger.
Huawei dismisses American fears about its intentions as nationalistic fearmongering. It says it has no more connection to the Chinese government than Apple or Google and that installing backdoors for spies in its network hardware or software would be tantamount to market suicide.

[ July 29 2011  China Oil corruption: Zhou Yongkang, the backer of Bo Xilai, now ensnarled   ]

China’s ruling Communist Party has put former security chief Zhou Yongkang — one of its most powerful men — under investigation.
Zhou had been a patron of Bo Xilai, who he is said to have backed for a slot on the PSC. Bo was jailed for life in September 2013 for corruption and abuse of power. Bo’s fall from grace, and that of his convicted murderer wife Gu Kailai, was China’s most dramatic political scandal since the trial of the Gang of Four after the Cultural Revolution. It was inevitable the Bo investigation would soon ensnarl Zhou too.

Zhou, 71, was born in the eastern industrial city of Wuxi in 1942, the son of a senior Communist defence procurement bureaucrat. Three years after entering Suzhou Middle School in 1958, he enrolled in the Beijing Petroleum Institute, now called the China University of Petroleum. He got his start in the 1970s as a technician for the Liaohe Oil Exploration Bureau in the northeastern province of Liaoning, home to China’s third-largest oil field.

In ordering the investigation of Mr. Zhou, Xi has broken with an unwritten understanding that members of the Standing Committee will not be investigated after retirement.
Two of Zhou’s former secretaries – Yu Gang and Ji Wenlin – and one of his former security guards, Tan Hong, faced charges over accepting bribes. Xinjiang’s former No 2 party official, Yang Gang, faced similar charges.
Mr. Zhou’s son, a sister-in-law and his son’s mother-in-law held assets worth some $1 billion, much of it in the oil and gas sector that was Mr. Zhou’s political fiefdom.
3/31/2014 China has seized at least $14.5 billion of assets from family and associates of the country’s former security chief Zhou Yongkang in the biggest corruption scandal since the Communist Party came to power in 1949
More than 300 of Zhou’s relatives, political allies and staff have been taken into custody or questioned.
The amount of money involved vastly exceeds the $2.7 billion of assets said in 2012 to be controlled by the family of former Chinese Premier Wen Jiaobao.
If the reported $14.5 billion of assets were ultimately owned by Zhou and excluded debt, his fortune would rank at No. 69 on Forbes magazine’s latest tally of the world’s billionaires.

1 September 2013 Jiang Jiemin is also the subject of a corruption investigation. Until March Mr Jiang was head of the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), which has faced a number of corruption allegations. Another four CNPC executives were under investigation for corruption.

Historian Zhang Lifan said the investigation into Zhou showed factional struggles within the party were intensifying.

“We need to watch whether the struggle stops with Zhou. Xi might have won the ultimate victory, and it could stop there,” Zhang said. “After all, such a struggle is hurting the party, too, because it reveals to the public so many ugly things.”

Yuan contagion

Yuan contagion

Now Beijing is expanding the use of the RMB in other financial centers, to allow for foreign holdings of the currency to be used for direct investment in China. According to Arvin Subramanian of the Financial Times, “the process is micro-managed, interventionist, and enclave-based – not a day seems to pass without some foreign entity, or country being granted greater but selective access to the renminbi.” Last week, the Financial Times reported that “China is for the first time to give formal backing to moves by British banks to turn the City of London into an offshore trading center for the renminbi.” Furthermore, the Economist reports that “in Singapore, banks now offer yuan deposits and bond funds. Its central bank is one of a dozen that have agreements with the Peoples Bank of China to swap their currencies for yuan.” here

As Premier Wen Jiabao famously put it back in 2007, the country’s growth is “unstable, unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable.” In such a crisis, China’s economic weight would become a liability. The IMF estimates that the impact of Chinese demand on the world’s largest economies has more than doubled over the past decade. A deteriorating outlook for Chinese imports could send commodity prices plummeting, precipitating heavy losses for investors and risking financial contagion. more

A DNA sample found at the 2004 murder scene of Juilliard student Sarah Fox has been matched to a separate sample taken at a recent Occupy Wall Street protest in Brooklyn,

The new discovery does not shake investigators’ belief that Dimitry Sheinman is the No. 1 suspect in the case,

Investigators have not yet been able to identify whose DNA was on the CD player and the chain, but they determined it doesn’t belong to Sheinman.
The new DNA sample was found on a chain used to prop open the gates at the Beverly Road subway station in East Flatbush during an Occupy Wall Street protest designed to let straphangers ride for free back in March,

The sample does not belong to any of Fox’s immediate friends or roommates, sources said.
Investigators were also working with several theories that could account for the match. For example, since Fox was a college student, the DNA could have gotten onto her device at school, and that person could later have become involved with Occupy Wall Street, sources said.
The CD player and the chain could also have been touched by the same cop, who had some connection to the murder scene and the chain, sources said. The origin of the chain has not yet been determined.
Whoever the person is, he has not been arrested previously, and has not shown up in any criminal DNA database.
Should the person be ID’d, investigators do want to talk to him, sources said.

Anyone in the subway that day could have touched the chain and left DNA. What is interesting is that they did DNA testing on items left from a protest action.
