Kampar was not the only one whom Cheng had studied and mimick

ed. Another player was the legendary Jan-Ove Waldner, whose multiple encounters with上海夜网品茶微信

top Chinese ping-pong players over a career spanning three decades made him a household name in China.

上海夜网Cheng met the then-15-year-old Waldner for the first time in China during an invitation m

atch. The last time the two played against each other was at the 1995 World Team Table Tennis Ch上海夜网品茶微信

ampionships in Atlanta, Georgia, when Cheng, representing the US, won by a narrow margin.

In between the two matches was Cheng’s 1985 visit to the US, to participate in the US Open representing China.

world’s No 1, at the hands of Wu Wenjia of Chinese Taipei. Cheng, mobilizing his varie

d techniques gained as a training partner, routed his opponent while dazzling the audience.上海夜网品茶微信

One of those in attendance was Larry Hodges, a wannabe-j

ournalist-turned ping-pong coach for junior players. “When I saw Cheng winning men’s sing

上海夜网les, doubles and teams at the 1985 US Open, I had no idea that our futures would be together,” he said.

In 1988, table tennis became an Olympic sport. That year, Cheng was invited by the US Table

Tennis Association to join a resident training program and coach some of the country’s top players and ju上海夜网品茶微信

niors at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs – his previous performance had clearly been marked down.

上海夜网”At the time I was the program’s manager and coach, and w

ould later become its director. Cheng and I shared one dorm and he discovered ea

that ranked among China’s most popular exports. “So he made it for us about once a week!”

In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M

ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta

ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网

The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.

上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T

rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t

he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网

Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.

上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended

the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.

Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his

country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网

But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C

上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.

Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has

been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网

ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.

The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized

the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信

itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.

Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网

task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con

上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi

ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

Ironically, the disputes between the US and China center around both nations’ legitimate desires to

Boeing created MCAS to make the new Max planes handle more like previ
