He added the company closely abides by all laws and regulations passed in the US and Europe.The comments come as Huawei faces a US Department of Justice investigation into whether it violated restrictions on trade with Iran.A similar investigation into ZTE’s dealings resulted in a seven-year trade ban which almost sank the company before President Trump’s administration struck a settlement deal to let it operate, after paying a $1.4 billion fine and shuffling its leadership.US companies supply key components to both Huawei and ZTE, making the impact of a potential trade ban devastating. Hu said Huawei’s supply chain is international, but noted the company plans to continue buying US chips this year despite the investigation.center_img FCC mulls expanded Huawei, ZTE bans Huaweitrade sanctionZTE ZTE pushes flexibility, simplicity in private 5G networks Latest Stories Home Huawei chief expects to avoid US sanctions Blog: How is chip shortage affecting US?last_img read more

Van Zyl leads strong home contingent at S. Africa Open

first_imgGAUTENG, South Africa – Jaco van Zyl shot a 7-under 65 Thursday to top a South African-dominated leaderboard in the first round of the South African Open, the European Tour’s first event of 2016. Van Zyl maintained the form that put him in ties for eighth and 13th at the season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship and Nedbank Golf Challenge before Christmas, making six birdies and an eagle. Shaun Norris was alone in second place after a 66, and Jbe Kruger and Keith Horne were tied for third at 5 under at Glendower Golf Club as South Africans filled the top four places. Two more were in a six-way tie at 4 under – Justin Walters and 2006 winner Retief Goosen. Defending champion Andy Sullivan of England shot 3 over and was 10 strokes off the pace. Play was suspended for the day because of the threat of lightning, with 33 players still to finish their rounds. Nicolas Colsaerts (shoulder) and Richard Finch (Achilles) retired in the first round. Van Zyl has 13 victories on South Africa’s Sunshine Tour but is yet to win on the European Tour, with the most recent of his four runner-up finishes coming at the Turkish Airlines Open in November. ”I’ve had a couple of weeks off, spending time with the family,” Van Zyl said. ”I’ve had my fair share of whisky and Christmas pudding so it was really nice to get off to a good start.” Starting at No. 10, Van Zyl picked up four shots on his front nine, and moved to 7 under after an eagle 3 at the par-5 second hole. He made up for his only bogey of the round, on No. 7, by making a birdie from three feet on the next hole.last_img read more

The life of Spilková? Just playground and room. We…

first_img“I’m excited to be here. It’s a home environment, I can speak Czech, eat Czech food, have a small beer. I am grateful for the opportunity to play here, “she said.From Friday, the Czech Ladies Open will take place in Beroun Golf Club – a tournament that belongs to the elite circuit of the Ladies European Tour.Spilková before the tournament in Beroun: I really wanted to play here“And I’m especially glad that we can finally play golf again. The more, the better, even if it’s challenging. I feel tired, but I try to adapt the program so that I sleep as well as possible, regenerate, “described the 26-year-old golfer.He is entitled to fatigue, as he is currently commuting from tournament to tournament. Over the past month, after a six-month coronavirus break, she has completed a series of four events – two tournaments in the United States and two in Scotland, including the major British Open.So she wondered if she would prefer rest. “But I’m a player in body and soul, I’m competitive and I couldn’t sleep,” she laughed.So she closed herself in an airtight bubble. The life of a professional golfer in normal times probably looks quite nice. However, according to Spilková, this is not honey at this crazy time. She has passed seven coronavirus tests in the last month. One always before the tournament and one after it. In the United States it had to spit into a tube, in Scotland they already had a similar test as in the Czech Republic.It’s hard to imagine how psychologically demanding it must be for golfers right now. After all, they are just commuting between hotel rooms and golf courses. They don’t look anywhere, they can’t go anywhere. They even take food from the hotel to their room to avoid other guests.“In Scotland, the rules were so strict that we couldn’t even walk around the hotel. We could only go for a while in front of the hotel to breathe fresh air, otherwise still a room – playground. We have lost any freedom, and freedom is very important for a person, “Spilková is clear.And she is not alone. Some golfers and other athletes have already heard that if the current situation persists, they will even consider ending their career. “A lot of players won’t want to live like this. We spend the whole year in tournaments, it’s our life that we don’t want to spend closed in one room. It also flashed through my head when I was locked up in a hotel for a month and couldn’t get out. But I still hope it gets better, “he says.She herself is not afraid that she could become infected with the virus, but rather takes the whole current situation with a grain of salt.“Having asymptomatic coronavirus … it feels like hair. The person is healthy, can go running, swimming, anything and must be quarantined for 14 days instead. I understand worries about older people, but this? It’s weird, “he says. “But I try to take it that way. I’m especially glad we can play again. Perhaps even those conditions will gradually improve. “It will improve minimally in terms of viewers. The tournament in Beroun will be the first ever after the restart of the season, where fans will be admitted. And for all days from Friday to Sunday. That’s why Spilková wants to show off at home.She last played in the Czech Republic four years ago at Pilsen’s Dýšina. However, the patient did not go through the cut, which she would like to avoid this year. “I hope Beroun will play with me. I’m really looking forward to it, “he attracts fans.last_img read more
