for reasons I don’t understand, almost nobody in crypto has the ability to communicate clearly in plain English. Facebook is no exception.

Tune into @bbcworldservice now to hear me talk about this meeting with Huawei! https://twitter.com/YuanfenYang/status/1140518601725829120 …

What’s the point of this PR campaign now? It’s a day late and a dollar short

China's swine herd shrank 21% on the year in April to a level not seen since the early 1990s. https://s.nikkei.com/2XVAZce 

how is this not a food crisis? and why is everyone only focussed on the linguistics issue when we're talking about massive food inflation? Also, never understood why food is stripped out of core inflation figures, when that's the thing people care about most?

@Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei said his company underestimated the strength and aspects of the U.S. aggression. Huawei’s sales in next two years will be remain largely flat (~$100b) due to the pushbacks from Trump administration. #tradewar #huawei #renzhengfei

WTF is this? "Coffee with Ren"? Huh?

HK Police very different approach today: urged the protesters to have breakfast before coming back to voice their concerns. “I’m not asking you to leave, but please return to the pavement.”via @SCMPNews

I love how HK protesters cheer for cooperation and respect

Quoted @JeromeTaylor

US announced new consul general in Hong Kong to replace the outgoing Kurt Tong and it’s Hanscom Smith, a seasoned China/Asia expert who is proudly gay and married to a Taiwanese man. That’ll ruffle a few Hong Kong establishment feathers https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/politics/article/3014487/us-consul-general-hong-kong-named-hanscom-smith-replacing …

Wow! Glad to see America can still surprise in good way
