al hub’s talent, technological innovation and financing indexes are in the top three of the country.

Although Beijing’s soft environment index ranked first among all Chinese cities, its hard environment index lagged behind

With the best hard environment, South China’s Shenzhen also leads on the country’s technological innovation index.

Five Chinese women are ranked in the world’s top 50, spear

headed by No 18 Wang Qiang, who this week reached the Miami Open quarterfinals to

become the first Chinese to go that far at the premier mandatory event since Li’s run to the final in 2014.

Li is delighted to see her compatriots mixing it with the world’s best, but said she expects more.

“It’s good to have a group of girls in the top 50, but the resources they enjoy today make me believe they could do better,” she said.

With more advanced coaching and training methods, WTA

CEO Steve Simon reckons China will unearth the next Li sooner rather than later.

“The chances of finding the next Li Na are very bright; it’s just a matter of time,” he said earlier this month in Shenzhen.

His full political arsenal was on display in a Trumpian mastercl

  class of a photo-op in the Oval Office Thursday with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

  A historian 100 years hence could pull the tape of the 16-minute tour de force and learn everything they needed to know about the Trump presidency.

  Trump’s behavior on Thursday offered pointers to how he will attempt to ride out political crosswinds using the uni

que political tools that made his late-in-life transition from business to Washington so successful.

  Thursday’s rebuke from Congress came amid a spell that wo

uld have been disastrous for any conventional politician, as legal and congressional probe

s suggest tough challenges ahead as special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report looms. Unusually, it also included a

slap from some Republicans who have been loath to challenge their leader in the first two years of his presidency.

  Trump’s refusal to show weakness or humility in defeat allied with a brazen, relentless

temperament and an indifference to shame helps explain why he is so hard to bring down.
