China warship gets additional ‘feature’

Published by:

China is believed to have acquired a key technology enabling the development of the electromagnetic weapon after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 when it bought out the British firm Dynex Semiconductor.

China’s apparently odd choice of an amphibious landing ship to mount such a weapon is probably because of its large cargo capacity. Photos of the ship berthed at a facility at Wuchang Shipyard in Hubei province seems to unveil three large shipping containers braced on its open deck.

These entertained the electrical generators needed to supply the railgun’s intense magnetic field. A new control room added was added to the ship as well as a set of new sensors, above the superstructure. The gun was described to be huge. Roughly the same size as a 32-megajoule railgun the US has been testing. The US-BAE rail gun is intended to fire a 10kg projectile at Mach 7 (8500km/h) over 150km.

Combining this with new integrated electric propulsion systems in warships enables the use of electromagnetic catapults to launch fighters from carriers without the need for powerful nuclear power plants. It also makes fitting electromagnetic rail guns viable.

Moreover, military technology expert Wang Ping at the Institute of Electrical Engineering under the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing told Chinese outlet the new system meant electricity-hungry launch systems and weapons is currently available to be used by any powered vessel. A lot of fund in the bank was surely used.

On the other hand, the US Navy announced it had found software late last month to fix the problem of the USS Ford. But it is not expected to be available for high-intensity combat until 2019, News.com.au revealed.

Why Chinese Investors are losing billions online

Published by:

Last week, the prominent online investment portal Qianbao headlines the news when it devastated small investors and prompted Beijing to take steps. Online investing in China isn’t for the weak but unfortunately, that’s who it usually draws.

The pitches frequently entice aspiring small investors like Walter Xu. Xu is a recent university graduate who was drawn to Qianbao by promises of sky-high returns. Qianbao looked like a real business as the portal sold cell phones and appliances — with discounts for members — as well as big returns for those who gave it money. In exchange for depositing money, watching ads and writing reviews, it offered returns of over 50 percent.  Mr. Xu invested a total of $32,000 of his savings in Qianbao, The New York Times reported.

Qianbao’s founder turned himself over to authorities last December 26. Mr. Xu turned to fellow investors on WeChat to commiserate. “I talked until 3 in the morning, I was shocked,” he said. Now, he said, he must put the episode behind him. “I need to work and start over,” he said.

Meanwhile, some investors who lost their savings in Qianbao protested last week in the city of Nanjing, where the online investment platform was based. China has been flooded with investment frauds in the past decades since its economic reopening led to a boom. In the end, online hocus pocus have the opportunity to reach more people in a country with more than 700 million internet users.  Many of them are usually doing transactions on Smartphone.

“If you are earning 10 or 11 percent on an investment product, you should know that you are taking on a high amount of risk,” said Michael Pettis, professor of finance at the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University and a senior associate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Importing Vacuum Cleaners From China: How to Go About It

Published by:

If you are a vacuum cleaners vendor based in the United States, you stand a chance to increase your profits and enhance your competitive advantage by starting to import the vacuum cleaners from China. That is because Chinese-made vacuum cleaners are normally cheaper than vacuum cleaners made elsewhere. The question that arises, though, pertains to the importation process: that is, how to go about importing vacuum cleaners from China.

The first step in the process of importing vacuum cleaners from China is that of identifying the Chinese manufacturers you are to import from.

The second step in the process of importing vacuum cleaners from China is that of getting in touch with the Chinese manufacturers you are to import from.

The third step in the process of importing vacuum cleaners from China is that of giving the order (for the vacuum cleaners you want) to the manufacturer you identified. Your order needs to be specific as to what types of vacuum cleaners you need. It is not enough to tell the manufacturer that you simply want good vacuums. You need, for instance, to research on the specifications for the best vacuum for home use and ensure that those are the specifications you give to the manufacturer when making the order.

Once you make the order, and make the payment for the vacuum cleaners, you just need to sit back, and wait for the vacuum cleaners to be manufactured and shipped to your nearest port.

The Three Key Pillars Leading to China’s Successful Industrialization

Published by:

China has managed to become an industrialized country in a relatively short period of time. A question naturally comes up, as to which factors have led to China’s successful industrialization. And in that regard, we are inclined to recognize that there are three key pillars, which have led to China’s successful industrialization.

The first pillar which has led to China’s successful industrialization is its low labor costs.

The second pillar which has led to China’s successful industrialization is its low energy costs.

The third pillar which has led to China’s successful industrialization is its good transport infrastructure.

Of course, there are question as to whether China’s successful industrialization has translated to real benefits for its people. And the answer to this seems to be in the affirmative: as there is evidence that the living standards of ordinary Chinese have risen dramatically from the early 1990s. But there is still little freedom in China. In China, for instance, you can’t just go to the Sbcglobal.net login page, or to the Att.net email login page and try to access SBCGlobal or ATT email respectively: thanks to the Internet restrictions in China. It is no surprise that China doesn’t get very good reports from organizations like Human Rights Watch. But proponents of the Chinese way of doing things argue that if it wasn’t for the restrictions, China would long have been infiltrated by ‘saboteurs’.

Analyzing the Two Key Markets That are Served by the Chinese Manufacturing Sector

Published by:

The Chinese manufacturing sector serves two key markets.

The first key market that is served by the Chinese manufacturing sector is the local (Chinese) market. It is always important to keep it in mind that China has a population of more than 1 billion people. By all accounts, that is a huge market – especially when you also remember that China protects its local markets very jealously.

The second key market that is served by the Chinese manufacturing sector is the international (global) market. China has come to be regarded as the world’s factory – although this may not always be the case in the future, as the manufacturing investors discover more and more places where labor costs are even lower than in China.

It is also worth noting that China is trying to move from being a purely manufacturing-driven economy, to one that is also able to create high quality service sector jobs for its citizens. It may be just a matter of time we get to a point where you could go to Logmein123.com (also accessible via logmeinrescue.com) page to seek remote technical assistance in IT, only for the assistant to turn out to be based in China! These expectations are not at all very wild, considering the considerable financial muscle of Chinese institutions such as the China Export-Import Bank and other state-controlled institutions.

How to Increase Headphones Sales

Published by:

As a person working in the marketing department of a headphones manufacturing company, one challenge you have to deal with is that of increasing the sales. We will mention some simple measures that you can take, to increase headphones sales.

In order to increase headphones sales, it is critical to ensure that the branding is done in the right way. You have to give the people a reason to buy your particular brand of headphones. Much here depends on how you position that brand. To get people to buy, for instance, you may need to position your particular brand of headphones as being the best headphones for the money. Or if you are against the idea of competing on price, you can decide to highlight a particularly usefulness in the headphones – like if they are the best headphones for a particular purpose. Thus, for instance, if it is a sleeping earbuds brand that you are selling, you can market them as the best headphones for sleeping and ensure that your target market starts to see them that way.

In order to increase headphones sales, it is important to see to it that the retailers stock your particular brand of headphones adequately. At a basic level, this may be just a question of ensuring that the earphones are widely available in the places where retailers get their stocks. This is just like the way companies like Samsung, Sony and Nokia go to great lengths to ensure that their products are widely stocked. At another level, you may need to ensure that the profit obtainable from the sale of your headphones is high enough, to motivate the vendors to actually stock them.

At yet another level, in order to increase headphones sales, you may need to consider advertising. Not many people seem to be in favor of the idea of advertising headphones in mass media. But you can opt to advertise online: and, indeed, many headphone vendors do advertise online. This way, you can increase the headphones’ sales in online marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay.
