47-year-old woman who suffered terminal kidney failure was saved after a transplant su

rgery using two kidneys from a donor who weighed just 1.3 kilograms – the lightest ki上海会所品茶微信

dney donor ever reported worldwide – a newspaper in Hubei province has reported.

上海会所The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos

ed with uremia in June 2018 at Wuhan Union Hospital and had the transplant surgery at

the same hospital in July last year, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported on Wednesday.上海会所品茶微信

The kidneys used in the surgery came from a premature ba

by whose parents decided to donate after the baby’s death, the report said.

上海会所Following a year’s treatment, the baby’s kidneys have grown to the size of an adult’s and function healthily.

Wang has recovered her health, the hospital said.

The donor is now the lightest kidney donor in the world, the hospital announced on Wednesday.

Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are difficult, and infants w上海会所品茶微信

ho weigh less than five kilograms are not considered sources of organs in many countries, the hospital said.

The success of the surgery in Wuhan means sources of kidney for transplant surgeries

will be greatly expanded to include early infants, which will ease the gap between the number of organs don

ated and the number of patients with terminal kidney diseases waiting for transplant surgeries in China, the hospital said.

On the other hand,上海会所he past, the Fed now has t

to take the delayed effect of balance sheet reduction conducted earlier into its consideration of rate cuts. The current phase-out of balanc

上海会所e sheet reduction already has some easing effect, and only after the balance sheet reduction ends in September, can its impact become clearer.

By incorporating that impact into consideration, the Fed can draw up a better rate cut plan that maximizes effects of the policy mix.上海会所

Thirdly, the market may have overestimated how much the Fed will cut the rates. There may be no more than three rate cuts by the end of 2020.

St. Louis Fed President James Bullard – the major advocate of this

round of rate cut – has suggested the use of the modern-day Taylor rule, which fairly well explains th上海会所

e Fed’s interest rate decisions. Even based on this model adopted by dovish Fed officials, we found that the degree of rate cuts may be weaker than m

上海会所arket expectation for quite some time going forward: at most one cut by the end of this year and likely two or three cuts by the end of 2020.

By contrast, before the June FOMC meeting, the market expected a higher-than-85-percent chance of more than one rate cut by the

end of this year as well as an about 60-percent chance of more than three cuts by the end of 2020, according to Bloomberg data.上海会所品茶微信

In conclusion, we think as economic downside pressure gradually emerges, the Fed will have to kick off the rate cut cycle. But the rate cut si上海会所品茶微信

gnal, timing and degree may not measure up to the market expectation. Therefore, two future developments appear possible:

First, investor sentiment can reverse drastically if the Fed’s action fails to meet market expec上海会所品茶微信

tation. Considering the market has fully priced in the unrealistic expectation of rate cuts sinc

e early June, any reversal of expectation can lead to short-term fluctuations of key price signals such as the US Treasury yield cu

rve, the US Dollar Index, and the gold price, which may pose extensive spillover shocks to asset portfolios.

Second, the long-term trend of rate cuts will continue even if the market expectation reverses. In the long

run, the Fed is expected to proceed with rate cuts in a fairly slow and smooth way. This will enlarge the monetary policy room of ot

her major economies and expedite the shift toward an easing global monetary environment, which may in turn lift the sen

timent of global stock markets and ease any currency risk of emerging markets gradually.

In the 1950s, the Amer 上海千花网try was seen as the

e prototype of how business should be run. Car company executives were seen as the most capable manage

 上海千花网品茶微信rs. In 1953, president Eisenhower chose Charles Wilson, known as “engine Charlie,” to be his Secretary of Defense.

Then, in 1961, president Kennedy chose Ford president Robert McNamara for the same position. (Of course, McNamara’s incredible mismanagement of the war in Vietnam reduced any confidence that car company executives were especially competent.)

By the late 1960s, the “big three “car companies in the US – General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler – formed a virtual oligopoly and turned lazy. 上海千花网

I remember American cars my father bought in these years often overheating and breaking down by the side of the road. Dad would have to stay by the car with my m

other and sisters while I walked a long way to find a service station and arrange a tow. (This was long before mobile phones.) 上海千花网品茶微信

So, American consumers were ready for more competitive Japanese-made cars, which had consistently high

er quality, to enter the market. My father switched to Japanese cars in the 1970s, and never bought another American-made car. 上海千花网

American car companies saw their profits fall and were not able to pay their workers t

he very high wages made possible by a closed, non-competitive market. The US government responded by

 上海千花网品茶微信imposing quotas on the import of Japanese cars and by pushing Japan to rapidly raise the value of the yen.

Obviously, there was a conflict. American consumers benefitted from the cheaper, better cars while workers at the big three saw their jobs become less secure and the

ir wages fall. Fortunately, the protection was only partial and temporary, so the competition eventually forced US carmakers to improve.

Competition is at the heart of the current disputes over globalization and technology. On net, the spread of econo 上海千花网品茶微信

mic opportunities around the world has been a great boon. Many products are more widely and cheaply available than ever before.

Many countries, including China and India, have greatly reduced poverty and given opportunities to their people that would have been undreamed of by earlier ge 上海千花网

nerations. American and Western European companies and consumers have greatly benefitted.

But nobody really likes competition against themselves. Most people like some degree of stability and protection. A worker w

ho has put in 20 or 30 years in an industry will definitely feel that it is unfair to have to move to a much lower-pa

ying service job. A company facing new competitors will try to convince its home government to stop the competition.

Americans saw many benefits from the second globalization period. As Japanese and, later Chinese, manufacturers began to export t

o the US, many consumer goods became a lot cheaper in US stores. Many American companies made good profits by exporting t

o the newly open markets or by outsourcing manufacturing to cheaper and/or better factories outside the US.

Mo didn’t publish any new work in the five years following the award, when in 2017 he

released several short stories, poems and theater works, mainly reminiscing about his hometown.

Unlike Mo’s former novels, Peking University professor Chen Xiaoming notes th

at his new works are more reserved, realistic stylistically and employ more simple language. Literary cri

So by holding lectures, conducting dialogues and screen

ning movies related to the countryside and contributed by guest authors, the region’s local literary legacy can both be re-examined and extended.

Many modern and contemporary works of Chinese literature touch on common rural issues – childhood upbringing, family inheritance and people’s exp

erience of being stuck on the bottom rung of society – that have been rooted in Chinese farming culture for thousands of years.

China’s urbanization has been rapidly progressing to the extent that rural life has become

something unfamiliar to the majority of the population, which is very different from what it was like just three de

cades ago, according to Ge Fei, author and a Chinese literature professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

He was rst day of the festival, interpreting what it means to us when rural societies fade away.
