(14:12) Beijing, Sep 12 (IANS) Amid the US-China trade war, a top executive of Chinese technology giant Huawei has said that the US needs to hold talks with the company in order to reach a trade deal with China. As per news portal GizmoChina’s report, the company’s Chief Security Officer Andy Purdy said, “Can I imagine a trade deal where the U.S. government doesn’t agree to talk to us? No I can’t.” Purdy noted that the trade war between the two is affecting American companies and workers more than it hurts Huawei. He said the company spent $11 billion on U.S. supplies last year and an estimated 40,000 U.S. jobs depend on its business. Huawei wants “transparent mechanisms” for evaluating its equipment and that of its competitors, which would build “trust through verification,” Purdy said. “We are not asking we should simply be allowed to sell without any scrutiny, we believe there has to be scrutiny for everyone,” he added.
ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – An Inuk activist has been released from hospital for a second time since her health struggles raised awareness about an Ontario rule that requires alcoholics to be sober for six months before they can be eligible for a liver transplant.Delilah Saunders, 25, posted to Facebook on Sunday saying she feels better and is ready to go home after spending several days at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s, N.L.Saunders, a prominent Indigenous women’s activist from Labrador, was diagnosed with pancreatitis on Wednesday night, just a few days after she was released from a Toronto hospital where she was being treated for acute liver failure.She has said doctors initially told her she was ineligible for a liver transplant because she had not abstained from alcohol for the prior six months, but later said it appeared the procedure wouldn’t be necessary.Her case put a spotlight on an Ontario transplant program’s six-month abstinence policy, which doctors have defended by citing research that suggests some alcoholics return to drinking after the procedure.Saunders told her social media followers that she is “over hospitals,” but says the nurses and doctors in St. John’s could not have provided her with better care.She told The Canadian Press in a Facebook message that she has been in touch with other advocates about reforming the Ontario rule.
