ltancy, said: “The lawsuit against Liu will bring damages to the image and reputation of JD, hav

e an impact on investors’ confidence, and cause fluctuations in its share price. Moreover, emp

loyees’ trust in the company may also be affected as the Beijing-based tech heavyweight is laying off staff to cut costs.”

Shen Meng, director of boutique investment bank Chanson & Co, said Liu’s case won’t chan

ge his actual control over JD, which is now making some innovations to reassure investors. Liu owns

15.8 percent of JD’s stock and controls nearly 80 percent of the company’s voting rights.

Liu was detained in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on suspicion of criminal sexual c

onduct on Aug 31 and later released without charge or bail. He returned to China on Sept 3.

In December, Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, the prosecutorial office handling the case announced that no sexual as

sault charges would be brought against Liu as prosecutors could not prove his guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

President Donald Trump escalated his public feud with the spouse of a top adviser Wednesda

y, attacking counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway’s husband George as “jealous” and a “husband from hell.”

“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that

I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted,” Trump tweeted, referring to a post at the Justi

ce Department. Conway, a conservative lawyer, withdrew from consideration for the role early in Trump’s presidency.

Trump continued, “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Wednesday’s tweet marks the first time Trump has publicly weighed in on the Conways’ marriage. While George Conway has

long been critical of Trump, attacks between the two ratcheted up this week when Conway questioned Trump’s men

tal health, tweeting screengrabs of the medical definitions of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial pers

onality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

“*All* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, inclu

ding and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet,” he wrote Monday.

  Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that he plans to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee’s probe into President Donald Trump.

  ”I will do everything to facilitate this investigation, and there’s nothing I have to hide,” Spicer said in an interview on Fox News.

  He is one of 81 individuals and entities that the committee sent letters to Monday requesting documents relating to the Pr

esident’s campaign, businesses, transition and administration. The requests began a broad probe into pos

sible corruption, abuses of power, hush money payments and collusion with Russia.

  Although Spicer intends to cooperate with the probe and said he respects the committee’s aut

hority, he called it a “fishing expedition” by the Democrats. He said Democrats in the House are sea

rching for wrongdoing by the President rather than pursuing a legislative agenda.

The region to the north of Beijing’s Fifth Ring Road is dominated by Tiantongy

uan, an enormous neighborhood reputed to be the largest residential area in Asia that houses approximately 700,000 people.

The area, which is home to more than 3 percent of the city’s population, mainly migrant work

ers, is nicknamed “Sleeper Town” because a lack of amenities and entertainment facilities mean most of the residents only go there to rest.

Located at the end of subway line 5, a major route connecting the downtown to the northern

suburbs, Tiantongyuan attracted its huge population as a result of its low property prices and relatively convenient location.

However, its dilapidated condition is a major headache for the city and the area faces a ho

st of problems, including a lack of infrastructure, both social and industrial, allied to heavy traffic congestion.

Priced at 2,650 yuan per square meter in 1999, Tiantongyuan was built to provide affordable housing

. Nearly 20 years later, property prices in the community have risen more than fourteenfold to 38,000 yuan ($5,600) per sq m.
