Norwegian-born youth predicted to play for China

orwegian-born John Hou Sæter, a midfielder with Beijing Guo’an, received his temporary Chinese ID card Tuesday, becoming the first naturalized Chinese footballer.

Known as Hou Yongyong in China, the 21-year-old is expected to make his Guo’an debut in the Chinese Football Assoc

iation (CFA) Super Cup match between Shanghai SIPG and Beijing Guo’an next weekend, according to The Paper.

Guo’an has also registered him up for the upcoming AFC Champions League.

It has also been predicted that he may receive a national team call-up in the future.

Hou Sæter made his debut for Norwegian side Rosenborg in a domestic cup game against Orkla F

K in 2014. The appearance made him, at 16 years and 101 days, Rosenborg’s youngest ever senior player.

In September 2014 he made his debut in the Norwegian top f

light against Aalesund, coming on as an 81st-minute substitute in a 3-0 win. This made him his sid

e’s youngest ever league debutant, at 16 years and 258 days, beating the previous record by nine days.

Speaking on the speculation that Hou Sæter may one day play for the Chinese national side, h

is mother, Hou Yurong, said that it would be “both my wish and his own choice. I’m always his biggest fan.”

Naturalization becomes increasingly popularup quarterfinal

China lost 3-0 to Iran in late January in the Asian Cup quarterfinal, conceding all three goals due to defensive errors. “When you face a strong team like Iran, you

have to avoid making the mistakes. I did not expect we lost the game in this way,” China coach Marcello Lippi said.

With the Olympic qualifying tournament and the 2022 World Cup quali

fying campaign around the corner, China faces an uphill battle with a limited squad.

Hou Sæter’s versatility has been praised by Guo’an head coach, Rog

er Schmidt, who has said the midfielder can play a number of positions across the pitch.

Naturalization has become increasingly popular in international football in recent

years, and has been used by Japan, the Philippines, and AFC Asian Cup holders Qatar.

Global economic growth entering slowdown growth in

The global economy is projected to grow at 2.6 percent between 2020 and 2035 and enter a low

-speed growth period, Economic Daily reported citing the Development Research Center of the State Council.

Considering changes in major factors such as technology, urbanization, population and environment, global eco

nomic growth is expected to experience a declining trend with slower growth rate long-term, the center said.

Developed economies’ overall growth is predicted to slow down further to about 1.7 percent — below t

he average growth rate over the past 50 years — while for developing countries, the annual average growth rate is expected to be 4.9 percent.

Over the next 15 years, some developing countries will continue their urbanization process. A new round of tec

hnology revolution and urbanization still carries potential for economic growth in some developing countries.

The global urbanization rate is expected to be 61.7 percent by 2035, becoming a key driver for future growth, the center asserted.

Chen was single when he bought his apartment, but since ma

arrying and starting a family, the 38-year-old has moved twice within the community.

To avoid the morning rush hour, Chen has to get up before 6 am every day and catch the subway to Xicheng district, in the west of the c

ity, before 7 am. His wife, Zhu Zhu, who also works in Xicheng but drives to her job, has to get up at 5 am to avoid traffic congestion.

The 35-year-old said that when she was pregnant and underwent prenatal examinations, the drive to the hospital usually took an hour.

“However, if I encountered a traffic jam, I had to endure a three-hour round trip,” she said.

Regular access to medical services is still a problem. Though the community has six high-quality hospitals and 30 health clinics, Zhu

said she doesn’t trust the quality of service, so if her son falls ill she takes him to the downtown for treatment.

Before buying his apartment, Chen didn’t realize that Changping lacked high-quality schools.

He is now considering renting an apartment in the downtown when his son, now 3, is old enough to attend primary school.

Du has other considerations. Last year, the situation in Tiantongyuan became so bad that he decided to look for a new hom

e in a different neighborhood. He is still looking. “I am still searching for an affordable apartment,” said the financial sector management trainee.

The Kunlun team conducted research works on astronomy, ice berg and surveying and

mapping, among other things. For instance, they on Feb 7 set up a new automatic meteorological station, so

me 100 km away from Zhongshan. The team members arrived at Taishan on Jan 31 to join the researchers there.

rants in addition to Alipay and WeChat Pay, the top two online transfer and payment tools in China in terms of market share.

Baidu, Sina Weibo and Douyin have joined the league of sending digital red envelops. Ba

idu allocated digital red envelops worth 900 million yuan ($133.5 million) and realized 20.8 billion tran

Last year, Alibaba-backed Taobao.com tied up with the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, sending a total of 600 million yuan in digital red envelops and prizes.

“Supporting the huge amount of transactions is China’s mature digital payment standard,” said Wang Pengbo, a finance industry analyst at Analysys.

Wang told the Global Times on Tuesday that as the cost of attracting new online users has ri

lbayalde added that three others, including the “two Asian su

bers,” were among those who were killed in the attack.

The police claimed that Kamah, an alleged member of the Abu Sayyaf’s Ajan

g-Ajang sub-group, was seen near the church moments before the explosions.

Albayalde said the attack was plotted as early as between Jan. 8. and Jan. 21. “An identified Asian couple believed to be ho

led in Lampinigan island for a few days sailed to Jolo on Jan. 24 by pump boat to meet up with other suspects.”

From fragments and components recovered at the scene, Albayalde said forensic technic

ians concluded that the bombs were made by pipes that contained “possible ammonium nitrate-fuel

il compound as primary explosive charge and possibly boosted by secondary high explosives.”

The IEDs are typical bombs used by the Abu Sayyaf militants, Albayalde said. “The signature

of the Abu Sayyaf group, therefore, is patently present in the IED used in this latest terror attack in Jolo.”

Albayalde added that the investigation of the blasts “is far from over as there are evidences that n

eed to be carefully examined to test its consistency with other facts and circumstances surrounding the incident.”
