By NORMAN PEARLSTINE, DAVID PIERSON, ROBYN DIXON, DAVID S. CLOUD, ALICE SU AND MAX HAO LU Standing on Huawei Technologies Co.’s sprawling new campus near Shenzhen, it’s hard to conceive that Ren Zhengfei, backed by five friends of friends, could have single-handedly turned his tiny start-up into a technology-driven colossus. Standing on Huawei Technologies Co.’s sprawling new campus near Shenzhen, it’s hard to conceive that Ren Zhengfei, backed by five friends of friends, could have single-handedly turned his tiny start-up into a technology-driven colossus. How could Ren, then in his 40s and possessing no intellectual property, have grown Huawei into the world’s biggest seller of telecommunications equipment and one of the largest makers of smartphones, with 188,000 employees in 170 countries? In fact, it’s entirely unbelievable, according to the U.S. government. Washington would have you believe Huawei’s official history is a sham — … [Read more...] about WHO’S BEHIND HUAWEI?
Short term and long term career goals
Cal State San Marcos was in its adolescence in 2004 when Karen Haynes took the mantle of the 7,000-student campus. Under her leadership, enrollment has more than doubled, 15 new buildings have been added and dozens of new academic programs have been launched, including a nursing program and an engineering program. Haynes also promoted countless community partnerships, launched a $50 million fundraising campaign and oversaw the school’s transition to NCAA Division II status. Haynes, who is the longest-seated president in the CSU system, will retire in June. She recently met with The San Diego Union-Tribune Editorial Board. Here is the transcript of the interview.Q: We have some questions… I know that you want to talk about the university, but you’ve been there for many years and seem to be leaving it much better than you found it, which is a good way to go through life. What are you most proud of looking back?HAYNES: Well, certainly what I… certainly what I said … [Read more...] about Commentary: A conversation with Cal State San Marcos President Karen Haynes
Ted Kulfan The Detroit News Published 2:14 PM EDT Mar 17, 2019 Detroit – When it comes to the experiment of playing Andreas Athanasiou at center, coach Jeff Blashill was direct in his analysis. “Some nights I’ve liked it, some nights not,” Blashill said after Saturday’s 2-1 Red Wings victory over the New York Islanders. Athanasiou scored both Wings goals, did everything defensively the Wings would want, and received a huge passing grade playing center. “He was excellent,” Blashill said. The two goals gave Athanasiou 26 for the season, one short of Dylan Larkin (27), who has established himself the type of two-way center the Wings would enjoy seeing Athanasiou become. The offensive part, Athanasiou has provided rather consistently this season, no matter where he’s played.

Lynn Henning The Detroit News Published 11:28 PM EST Jan 31, 2019 The first day on the job as a full-time journalist and sports writer was Aug. 5, 1974, a hot, bright Monday morning, three days before President Richard Nixon resigned, and with a 7 a.m. start at the Battle Creek Enquirer. A guy two months after grabbing his journalism degree from Michigan State had secured that most aspired of all prizes: a job at a daily newspaper. I walked into the office and joined my two sports-staff partners, Dick Lovell and sports editor Bill Frank. My first task: write a cutline (photo caption) for an Associated Press photo of Jack Nicklaus from the Pleasant Valley Classic's final round. Four decades and many million words later, it ends, formally anyway, today at The Detroit News, a wondrous employer for nearly all of the past 40 years. There have been moments and minutes so magical, and so frequent, as to defy any orderly account. But here goes on … [Read more...] about Henning: 45 years covering sports provide endless memories
