Zhao added that the new consumption trend of this

year’s holiday is also an epitome of the overall consumption trend in the country this year.

“The growth has been driven by the surge in disposable incomes and the middle-income population,” she added.

Guideline calls for 80 percent of related shipping to use cleaner means by 2025

China plans to achieve ultralow emissions at most steel plants by 2025, with 80 percent of raw m

aterials and final products shipped by cleaner methods including railways, ships and pipelines, rather than trucks.

Experts believe the ambitious goal, if reached, will contribute signi

ficantly to reducing bad air in the country, as the steel industry currently pollutes more than any other.

The holiday period also triggered demand for travel-related pro

ducts. Suning reported that sales of sunblock products and sunscreen clothes grew 74 perc

ent and 107 percent year-on-year. Travel packages rose by 128 percent during the period.

Ultralow emissions will be realized at all steel manufa

cturers in key regions, and in 80 percent of the sector nationwide by the end of 2025, under a guideline pub

lished by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment on Sunday. The guideline was drafted by the ministry and four other central gove

rnment bodies, including the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s economic planner.

The guideline sets different limits for various procedures in steel produ

ction. The hourly density of particulate matter in emissions should be below 10 mill

igrams per cubic meter in all procedures. As for sulfur dioxide and nitric oxide discharges, the limit can dif

fer. The hourly concentration of sulfur dioxide, for example, should be below 35 mg/cu m in emissions generated by core pr

ocesses, such as pellet roasting, but the standard is relaxed to 50 mg/cu m for other processes.

At least 80 percent of raw materials and products should be transported v

ia railway, ship and pipeline rather than road transportation, the guideline said.

China is the largest steel-maker in the world. The country produced 928 million metri

c tons of crude steel in 2018, representing 51.3 percent of the world’s output, the ministry said.

“It reflects his personality, which is to want control,” said Berry Cash,

The candidate looked baffled. “What did you say?”

“Are you a virgin?” Jobs asked. The candidate sat there flustered, so Jobs changed the subject.

“How many times have you taken LSD?” Hertzfeld recalled, “The poor guy was turning

varying shades of red, so I tried to change the subject and asked a straightforward technical

 

question.” But when the candidate droned on in his response, Jobs broke in.

“Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble,” he said, cracking up Smith and Hertzfeld.

“It reflects his personality, which is to want control,” said Berry Cash, who was hired by

Jobs in 1982 to be a market strategist at Texaco Towers. “Steve would talk about the Apple

 

II and complain, ‘We don’t have control, and look at all these crazy things people are trying

to do to it. That’s a mistake I’ll never make again.’” He went so far as to design special tools

 

so that the Macintosh case could not be opened with a regular screwdriver. “We’re going

to design this thing so nobody but Apple employees can get inside this box,” he told Cash.

Jobs also decided to eliminate the cursor arrow keys on the Macintosh keyboard. The only

way to move the cursor was to use the mouse. It was a way of forcing old-fashioned users

to adapt to point-and-click navigation, even if they didn’t want to. Unlike other product

developers, Jobs did not believe the customer was always right; if they wanted to resist

using a mouse, they were wrong.

There was one other advantage, he believed, to eliminating the cursor keys: It forced

outside software developers to write programs specially for the Mac operating system,

rather than merely writing generic software that could be ported to a variety of computers.

That made for the type of tight vertical integration

between application

software,operating

systems, and hardware

devices that Jobs liked.

“What a strange meeting! What a strange meeting!” he exclaimed

“What a strange meeting! What a strange meeting!” he exclaimed aloud.

Yü-ts’un speedily looked at him, (and remembered) that this person had, in past days, carried on business in a curio establishment in the capital, and that his surname was Leng and his style Tzu-hsing.

A mutual friendship had existed between them during their sojourn, in days of yore, in the capital; and as Yü-ts’un had entertained the highest opinion of Leng Tzu-hsing, as being a man of action and of great abilities, while this Leng Tzu-hsing, on the other hand, borrowed of the reputation of refinement enjoyed by Yü-ts’un, the two had consequently all along lived in perfect harmony and companionship.

“When did you get here?” Yü-ts’un eagerly inquired also smilingly. “I wasn’t in the least aware of your arrival. This unexpected meeting is positively a strange piece of good fortune.”

“I went home,” Tzu-hsing replied, “about the close of last year, but now as I am again bound to the capital, I passed through here on my way to look up a friend of mine and talk some matters over. He had the kindness to press me to stay with him for a couple of days longer, and as I after all have no urgent business to attend to, I am tarrying a few days, but purpose starting about the middle of the moon. My friend is busy to-day, so I roamed listlessly as far as here, never dreaming of such a fortunate meeting.”

While speaking, he made Yü-ts’un sit down at the same table, and ordered a fresh supply of wine and eatables; and as the two friends chatted of one thing and another, they slowly sipped their wine.

The conversation ran on what

had occurred after the separation,

and Yü-ts’un inquired,

“Is there any news of any kind in the capital?”
