Rice from China has been successfully planted in the deserts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a

nd its yield has hit a record high, leading to an agricultural breakthrough in the city.上海后花园品茶微信

The seawater rice yield reached 629 kilograms per mu (0.06 hectare), a result observed by experts from China and Dubai on J

u上海后花园ne 6. This yield is on par with the advanced level of international rice planting in desert areas and saline-alkali soil.

The sea rice project, launched by the Wuhan Haidao International Agricultural Development Co of Hubei province last O

ctober, broke the record for Dubai desert rice planting in terms of planting area and rice yield. This achi上海后花园

evement was praised by the ruler of Dubai and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai.

上海后花园Invited by Dubai, experts from the company provided all te

chnological services for seawater rice planting in Dubai’s deserts and deve

loped the proprietary “Haidao 86” rice species. They began their work in November.上海后花园品茶微信

Dubai has quite special agricultural, ecological and climate conditi

上海后花园ons. In other words, disadvantages — including low temperatures at night for the seeding stage

, high temperatures and dry winds in the earing period and low rainfall. The favorable period for rice growth is also quite

short. Any small mistake in cultivation may lead to failure, the Wuhan company said.上海后花园品茶微信

Barren soil, insects, bird strikes and shortage of water

have been major hindrances for rice planting in Dubai deserts, the上海后花园

company said, adding pesticides and inorganic nitrogenous fertilizers were not allowed in the project area.

上海后花园品茶微信In recent years, many domestic and international companies tried to plant rice in Dubai wi

thout satisfying results due to existing obstacles, said company investor Xie Xiaoqing.

But the experts finally succeeded by applying creative s上海后花园

eeding methods, scientific water management and strict growth process control.

The success of the project has presented the technological progress of Chinese agric上海后花园品茶微信

ulture to the world and benefited people across the globe, and will help in prom

oting both international cooperation and the sharing of agricultural technology, she added.

ompanies should explore上海后花园 ‘dark’ datastry insid

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potentia

上海后花园anager of security markets at Splunk, delivers a speech during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d

ark data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org

anization’s s上海后花园女神会所ystems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

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 opport上海后花园

unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da上海后花园女神会所

ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell

上海后花园igence, 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 milli上海后花园女神会所

on 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 bu

sinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

US President Don上海后花园品茶微信military strikes

against Iran on F上海后花园品茶微信riday in retaliation for the downing of a US surveillance drone, but called off the attacks at the last minute, The New York Times reported.

The newspaper cited an official from the United States, who was not authorized to discuss the operation publi

Strikes were set to take place just before dawn on Friday to minimize r

isk to the Iranian military or to civilians. “Planes were in the air and ships were in p

osition, but no missiles fired, when the order to stand down came,” the official said.

It was unclear if attacks on Iran might go ahead later, the newspaper rep

orted, nor was it known whether Trump had changed his mind or whether his adm

inistration had become concerned about logistics or strategy. The White House declined requests for comment.

Wei Jianguo, vice-president of the China Center for Inte

rnati上海后花园onal Economic Exchanges, warned that although China would not be happy to see the so-called trade war expand into the fields of finance, tech

nology or geopolitics, the country must be prepared for all kinds of confrontations.

“The US has repeatedly violated the multilateral mechanism based on World Trade Organizat

ion rules. Due to the influence of hard-line hawks, it is likely to continue the trade war,” he said.

China has less motivation to further stimulate economic growth, but the government needs t

o search for more methods to control debt and reduce default risks, according to officials and economists.

China’s macroeconomic leverage ratio, or the total debt-to-GDP proportion, rose slightly in the first quarter, but the over

all leverage level still remained stable, Huang Xiaolong, deputy head of the Financial Stability Bureau of the Peo

ple’s Bank of China, the central bank, said at a media conference on Wednesday.

Li Daokui, director of the Academic Center for Chine

Domestic financial institutions are now capable of engaging i

n fiercer competition with global peers as their service abilities in many aspe

cts, such as banking and insurance, have improved a lot over the past years, Li said.

Despite headwinds from the trade tensions, global investors are still optimistic about China’s economic pro

spects, said Zhang Zhiwei, Deutsche Bank’s chief China economist and head of China equity strategy.
