The market value of millet evaporated by 200 billion

Lei Jun made headlines again today. This time the headline was made because of an old story. At the Wuzhen conference, Lei Jun talked about his interview with Sohu. Lei Jun said that he went to Sohu to persuade Zhang Chaoyang to invest excellently. But Zhang Chaoyang invited him to Sohu.


However, Lei Jun certainly would not leave Jinshan at that time. In the end, it’s over. In fact, not only Lei Jun, Ma Yun also went to Sohu for an interview. But in the end, Zhang Chaoyang chose Gu Yongqiang instead of Ma Yun. But Ma Yun later said that he went to the interview just to see Zhang Chaoyang.

In fact, Lei Jun is riding a roller coaster this year. After seven years of waiting, he finally succeeded in leading millet to market. It took Lei Jun more than ten years to lead Jinshan City in that year. This time is different from 11 years ago, when Lei Jun discovered that Jinshan had been abandoned by the capital market. At that time, the market value of Jinshan was less than HK$1 billion.

This time, however, millet was popular as soon as it went on the market. Not only are ordinary shareholders chasing millet enthusiastically, but many big men have come forward to support Lei Jun. Li Ka-shing, the richest man in China, is a loyal supporter of Lei Jun. Li Ka-shing bought a lot of millet shares for HK$234 million.

But the invincible Li Ka-shing seems to have lost sight this time. The market value of millet has been as high as HK$480 billion since its launch, but only two months later, the market value of millet has left over HK$200 billion, and the market value of millet has evaporated by HK$200 billion. Li Jiacheng’s investment has also lost more than half.

Li Ka-shing’s investment is made through a foundation. Li Ka-shing once said that all the investments made by the Foundation are personal if they are lost. Li Ka-shing had invested hundreds of millions of dollars in Facebook in 2008 and made more than 20 billion dollars. Li Ka-shing’s failure in this investment can only be recognized by himself.

In addition to Li Jiacheng, Ma Yun, He Xiaopeng and others have subscribed to millet shares. But Lei Jun did disappoint many friends.

But Lei Jun himself did not seem to be affected much. Before his company went public, Lei Jun received a 9.9 billion yuan reward. 9.9 billion is almost equal to millet’s two-year profit. Millet’s profit last year was only 5 billion yuan.

Lei Jun said yesterday that he didn’t want millet to be on the market this year because he thought it would be OK this year, but it would be better in two or three years. However, Lei Jun finally said that he agreed with everyone’s opinion, so he pushed millet on the market this year. I don’t know that everyone convinced Lei Jun, but also said that the 9.9 billion yuan award touched Lei Jun.

Millet started with mobile phones, but the current product line has been very long, from mobile phones to television, then to rice cookers, electric cars, air purifiers, and recently millet launched air conditioning products. Many people think that Lei Jun is constantly bringing forth new ideas, but others think that Lei Jun is not doing his business properly.

This year, although millet has achieved the goal of 100 million mobile phone shipments, the current position of millet in the mobile phone market is not reliable. Mobile phones are one of the fastest-changing markets in the world. The former technology giants Nokia and Motorola collapsed overnight. HTC, which was once very popular at that time, has become unknown nowadays.

Millet is difficult to dominate in the mobile phone market alone, not to mention that there are many strong enemies in the field of household appliances. The accumulation of Gree in the field of air conditioning and the advantages of Beauty in the field of small household appliances are not what Millet can catch up with in two days a day. In fact, millet can hardly make a bull with only a small socket.

At the beginning, millet introduced the socket with USB socket, which won the popularity of the market. But after the bull refused to process millet, the bull introduced its own socket with USB socket, and soon updated the new product. The bull’s advantage in the field of sockets is not something millet can shake.

What’s wrong with the weird smile at the airport security check

As the fastest and safest means of transportation, security inspection is indispensable. Every day,

the goods intercepted by security inspectors are all-inclusive. Recently, security inspectors at

Qingdao Airport stopped a mischievous passenger, who was stopped by security inspection and delayed his journey.

At about 5:50 p.m. on January 3, 2019, members of a five-unit Sunshine Team of the Qingdao Airport

Security Brigade Inspection Team are carrying out the security inspection in an orderly manner.

At this time, a flustered, dodgy young man attracted the attention of the former guide. More doubtfully,

the young man’s expression was strange. When the staff talked to him, he remained silent and seemed to have something in his mouth.

After the passenger came down from the safety door, the person in charge of the passage questioned him.

At first, the passenger remained silent, with a strange smile on his lips.

The person in charge of the corridor asked the passenger to open his mouth for inspection. He spit

out a lighter from his mouth and finally handed it over to the airport public security organ according to relevant regulations.

Philippines Calls for National Football Team 2019 Asian

Tomorrow morning, the 2019 Asian Cup will begin. The Chinese men’s football team will finish in two days. The opponent is Kyrgyzstan.

This is the weakest team in the Asian Cup, but it is not easy before the national football match, because in the previous warm-up match, the national football team has many problems in attack and defense, and it is not easy to win any opponent.

The second match of FIFA will be against the South-East Asian team Philippines, which would not have reached the finals if it had not been for the expansion of the Asian Cup.

But now the team led by Eriksson is keen on the FA, Eriksson said: “We are in a very tough group.

South Korea and China are both very strong teams. I think South Korea will be the first team in the group and China may be the second team.

But the second group may be the Philippines or Kyrgyzstan. We will try to get the line out. On paper, the Chinese team will be stronger, but I hope we can advance.

In terms of paper strength, the national football team is naturally weaker than South Korea and stronger than Kyrgyzstan and the Philippines, but now the national football team is in a bad state.

Eriksson has coached Guangzhou Fuli, Shanghai Shanggang and Shenzhen teams successively in China. He is familiar with both Chinese national team and Chinese players.

Even international football coach Lippi is also very familiar with it. This will be the Philippines’advantage against China. They know where China’s weaknesses lie.

More importantly, today’s football players seem to have lost self-confidence. Continuous defeats and poor performances have severely impacted the football players.

If in the past they could rely on Lippi to build self-confidence, but now Lippi is also angry with them, Lippi can no longer calm down, which for the international football players,

It’s the last straw of confidence that’s gone. It’s very dangerous. Second, the group seems to be shaky.

The king wore lambswool breeches and a quilted doublet,

The king wore lambswool breeches and a quilted doublet, yet somehow he looked as stiff and uncomfortable as if he had been clad in plate and mail. His skin was

pale leather, his beard cropped so short that it might have been painted on. A fringe about his temples was all that remained of his black hair. In his hand

was a parchment with a broken seal of dark green wax.

Jon took a knee. The king frowned at him, and rattled the parchment angrily. “Rise. Tell me, who is Lyanna Mormont?”

“One of Lady Maege’s daughters, Sire. The youngest. She was named for my lord father’s sister.”

“To curry your lord father’s favor, I don’t doubt. I know how that game is played. How old is this wretched girl child?”

Jon had to think a moment. “Ten. Or near enough to make no matter. Might I know how she has offended Your Grace?”

Stannis read from the letter. “Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is STARK. A girl of ten, you

say, and she presumes to scold her lawful king.” His close-cropped beard lay like a shadow over his hollow cheeks. “See that you keep these tidings to yourself, Lord

Snow. Karhold is with me, that is all the men need know. I will not have your brothers trading tales of how this child spat on me.”

“I’m going to show you how dangerous tigers are,” hecontinued. “I want you to remember this lesson for the rest ofyour lives.”He turned to Babu and nodded.

Babu left. Mahisha’s eyesfollowed him and did not move from the door he disappearedthrough. He returned a few

seconds later carrying a goat withits legs tied. Mother gripped me from behind. Mahisha’s snarlturned into a growl deep in the throat.

Babu unlocked, opened, entered, closed and locked a cagenext to the tiger’s cage. Bars and a trapdoor separated thetwo.

Immediately Mahisha was up against the dividing bars,pawing them. To his growling he now added explosive,

arrestedwoofs. Babu placed the goat on the floor; its flanks wereheaving violently, its tongue hung from its mouth, and its eyeswere

spinning orbs.

He untied its

legs. The goat

got to its feet.

Lady Melisandre stirred. “Tell me, Lord Snow …

Lady Melisandre stirred. “Tell me, Lord Snow … where were these other kings when the wild people stormed your Wall?”

“A thousand leagues away and deaf to our need,” Jon replied. “I have not forgotten that, my lady. Nor will I. But my father’s bannermen have wives and children to

protect, and smallfolk who will die should they choose wrongly. His Grace asks much of them. Give them time, and you will have your answers.”

“Answers such as this?” Stannis crushed Lyanna’s letter in his fist.

“Even in the north men fear the wroth of Tywin Lannister. Boltons make bad enemies as well. It is not happenstance that put a flayed man on their banners.

They north rode with Robb, bled with him, died for him. They have supped on grief and death, and now you come to

offer them another serving. Do you blame them if they hang back? Forgive me, Your Grace, but some will look at you and see only another doomed pretender.”

“If His Grace is doomed, your realm is doomed as well,” said Lady Melisandre. “Remember that, Lord Snow. It is the one true king of Westeros who stands before you.”

Jon kept his face a mask. “As you say, my lady.”

I could feel Mother’s hand pressed against my poundingheart.

The trapdoor resisted with sharp cries. Mahisha was besidehimself – he looked as if he were about to burst through thebars.

He seemed to hesitate between staying where he was, atthe place where his prey was closest but most certainly out

ofreach, and moving to the ground level, further away but wherethe trapdoor was located. He raised himself and started snarlingagain.

The goat started to jump. It jumped to amazing heights. Ihad no idea a goat could jump so high. But the back

 

of thecage

was a high

and smooth

cement wall.

“As you command, Sire.” Maege Mormont had ridden south

“As you command, Sire.” Maege Mormont had ridden south with Robb, Jon knew. Her eldest daughter had joined the Young Wolf’s host as well. Even if both of them

had died, however, Lady Maege had other daughters, some with children of their own. Had they gone with Robb as well? Surely Lady Maege would have left at

least one of the older girls behind as castellan. He did not understand why Lyanna should be writing Stannis, and

could not help but wonder if the girl’s answer might have been different if the letter had been sealed with a direwolf

instead of a crowned stag, and signed by Jon Stark, Lord of Winterfell. It is too late for such misgivings. You made your choice.

“Two score ravens were sent out,” the king complained, “yet we get no response but silence and defiance. Homage is the duty every leal subject owes his king. Yet

your father’s bannermen all turn their back on me, save the Karstarks. Is Arnolf Karstark the only man of honor in the north?”

Arnolf Karstark was the late Lord Rickard’s uncle. He had been made the castellan of Karhold when his nephew

and his sons went south with Robb, and he had been the first to respond to King Stannis’s call for homage, with a raven

declaring his allegiance. The Karstarks have no other choice, Jon might have said. Rickard Karstark had betrayed the direwolf and spilled the blood of lions.

The stag was Karhold’s only hope. “In times as confused as these, even men of

honor must wonder where their duty lies. Your Grace is not the only king in the realm demanding homage.”

Babu exited the cage in the same careful way he had enteredit. The cage had two floors, one level with us, the other at

theback, higher by about three feet, that led outside to the island.

The goat scrambled to this second level. Mahisha, nowunconcerned with Babu,

paralleled the move in his cage in afluid, effortless motion. He crouched and lay

still, his slowlymoving tail the only sign of tension.
Babu stepped up to the trapdoor

between the cages andstarted pulling it open. In anticipation of satisfaction, Mahishafell silent. I heard two things at that moment: Father saying”Never forget

this lesson” as he looked on grimly, and thebleating of the goat. It must

 

have been

bleating all along,

onlywe couldn’t

hear it before.

Castle Black seemed a bleak and forlorn place in the

Castle Black seemed a bleak and forlorn place in the pale dawn light. My command, Jon Snow reflected ruefully, as much a ruin as it is a stronghold. The Lord Commander’s Tower was a shell, the Common Hall a pile of

blackened timbers, and Hardin’s Tower looked as if the next gust of wind would knock it over … though it had looked that way for years. Behind them rose the Wall: immense, forbidding, frigid, acrawl with builders pushing up a

new switchback stair to join the remnants of the old. They worked from dawn to dusk. Without the stair, there was no way to reach the top of the Wall save by winch. That would not serve if the wildlings should attack again.

“How well, though?” Ser Godry drew his own blade. “Show us. I promise not to hurt you, lad.”

How kind of you. “Some other time, ser. I fear that I have other duties just now.”

“You fear. I see that.” Ser Godry grinned at his friends. “He fears,” he repeated, for the slow ones.

“You will excuse me.” Jon showed them his back.

“Yes, it is,” said Father, annoyed. “It may very well savetheir lives.”Save our lives! It was no longer a small alarm bell thatwas ringing in my head – they

were big bells now, like theones we heard from Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, not farfrom the zoo.

“But Piscine? He’s only eight,” Mother insisted.
“He’s the one who worries me the most.””I’m innocent!” I burst out. “It’s Ravi’s fault, whatever it is.

He did it!””What?” said Ravi. “I haven’t done anything wrong.” Hegave me the evil eye.

“Shush!” said Father, raising his hand. He was looking atMother. “Gita, you’ve seen Piscine. He’s at that age when boysrun around and poke their noses everywhere.”Me? A run-arounder? An everywhere-nose-poker? Not so,not

so! Defend me, Mother, defend me, I implored in myheart. But she only sighed and nodded, a signal that theterrible

 

business could

proceed.

“Come with me,”

said Father.

Boy was not the worst of the things that Jon Snow had

Boy was not the worst of the things that Jon Snow had been called since being chosen lord commander. He ignored it.

“Snow,” the voice insisted, “Lord Commander.”

This time he stopped. “Ser?”

The knight overtopped him by six inches. “A man who bears Valyrian steel should use it for more than scratching his arse.”

Jon had seen this one about the castle—a knight of great renown, to hear him tell it. During the battle beneath the Wall, Ser Godry Farring had slain a fleeing giant, pounding after him on horseback and driving a lance through his back,

then dismounting to hack off the creature’s pitiful small head. The queen’s men had taken to calling him Godry the Giantslayer.

Jon remembered Ygritte, crying. I am the last of the giants. “I use Longclaw when I must, ser.”

Countless stories are told of them. They are the pendants ofthose “vicious”, “bloodthirsty”, “depraved” animals that inflamethe ire of the maniacs I have

just mentioned, who vent theirspite on them with walking sticks and umbrellas. In both caseswe look at an animal and see a mirror. The obsession

withputting ourselves at the centre of everything is the bane notonly of theologians but also of zoologists.

I learned the lesson that an animal is an animal, essentiallyand practically removed from us, twice: once with Father andonce with Richard Parker.

It was on a Sunday morning. I was quietly playing on myown. Father called out.

“Children, come here.”Something was wrong. His tone of voice set off a smallalarm bell in my head. I quickly reviewed my conscience. Itwas clear. Ravi must be in trouble again. I wondered what hehad done this time. I

“Ravi, Piscine, I have a very important lesson for you today.””Oh really, is this necessary?” interrupted Mother. Her facewas flushed.

I swallowed. If Mother, normally so unruffled, so calm, wasworried, even upset, it meant we were in serious trouble. Iexchanged glances with Ravi.

“Three corns and one roast raven,” said Dolorous Edd.

“Three corns and one roast raven,” said Dolorous Edd. “Very good, m’lord, only Hobb’s made boiled eggs, black sausage, and apples stewed with prunes. The apples stewed with prunes are excellent, except for the prunes. I won’t

eat prunes myself. Well, there was one time when Hobb chopped them up with chestnuts and carrots and hid them in a hen. Never trust a cook, my lord. They’ll prune you when you least expect it.”

“Later.” Breakfast could wait; Stannis could not. “Any trouble from the stockades last night?”

“Not since you put guards on the guards, m’lord.”

“Good.” A thousand wildlings had been penned up beyond the Wall, the captives Stannis Baratheon had taken when his knights had smashed Mance Rayder’s patchwork host. Many of the prisoners were women, and some of the

guards had been sneaking them out to warm their beds. King’s men, queen’s men, it did not seem to matter; a few black brothers had tried the same thing. Men were men, and these were the only women for a thousand leagues.

“Two more wildlings turned up to surrender,” Edd went on. “A mother with a girl clinging to her skirts. She had a boy babe too, all swaddled up in fur, but he was dead.”

“Dead,” said the raven. It was one of the bird’s favorite words. “Dead, dead, dead.”

“Religion will save us,” I said. Since when I could remember,religion had been very close to my heart.

“Religion?” Mr. Kumar grinned broadly. “I don’t believe inreligion. Religion is darkness.”Darkness? I was puzzled. I thought, Darkness is the lastthing that

religion is. Religion is light. Was he testing me? Washe saying, “Religion is darkness,” the way he sometimes said inclass things like “Mammals lay eggs,”

to see if someone wouldcorrect him? (“Only platypuses, sir.”)”There are no grounds for going beyond a scientificexplanation of reality and no sound

reason for believinganything but our sense experience. A clear intellect, closeattention to detail and a little scientific knowledge will exposereligion as

superstitious bosh. God does not exist.” -Did he say that? Or am I remembering the lines of lateratheists? At any rate, it was something of the

sort. I had neverheard such words.
“Why tolerate darkness? Everything is here and clear, if onlywe look carefully.”He was pointing at Peak. Now though I had greatadmiration

They had free folk drifting in most every night,

They had free folk drifting in most every night, starved half-frozen creatures who had run from the battle beneath the Wall only to crawl back when they realized there was no safe place to run to. “Was the mother questioned?” Jon

asked. Stannis Baratheon had smashed Mance Rayder’s host and made the King-Beyond-the-Wall his captive … but the wildlings were still out there, the Weeper and Tormund Giantsbane and thousands more.

“Aye, m’lord,” said Edd, “but all she knows is that she ran off during the battle and hid in the woods after. We filled her full of porridge, sent her to the pens, and burned the babe.”

Burning dead children had ceased to trouble Jon Snow; live ones were another matter. Two kings to wake the dragon. The father first and then the

son, so both die kings. The words had been murmured by one of the queen’s men as Maester Aemon had cleaned his wounds. Jon had tried to dismiss

them as his fever talking. Aemon had demurred. “There is power in a king’s blood,” the old maester had warned, “and better men than Stannis have done

worse things than this.” The king can be harsh and unforgiving, aye, but a babe still on the breast? Only a monster would give a living child to the flames.

He spoke again. “Some people say God died during thePartition in 1947. He may have died in 1971 during the war.

Or he may have died yesterday here in Pondicherry in anorphanage. That’s what some people say, Pi. When I was yourage, I lived in bed, racked with

polio. I asked myself every day,‘Where is God? Where is God? Where is God?’ God nevercame. It wasn’t God who saved me – it was medicine. Reasonis my

prophet and it tells me that as a watch stops, so wedie. It’s the end. If the watch doesn’t work properly, it must befixed here and now by us. One day we will take hold of themeans of production and there will be justice on

earth.”This was all a bit much for me. The tone was right – lovingand brave – but the details seemed bleak.

 

I said nothing.

Itwasn’t for

fear of angering

Mr. Kumar.
