NAIROBI Phoenix Suns Jersey , July 11 (Xinhua) -- Chinese tech giant Huawei said Tuesday it has partnered with British money transfer service operator WorldRemit to enable African expatriates to send money home to millions of subscribers of Huawei's mobile money service platform across Africa.
The deal will enable Huawei to add a ready-made solution for remittances -- a growing mobile money product offering -- to its existing suite of services.
"International remittance is a very important mobile money service in Africa, and our partnership with WorldRemit will bring international remittances directly to Huawei's customers across the continent," David Chen, VP of Huawei Southern Africa said in a statement.
"Huawei is committed to providing advanced mobile money platforms and technologies to global mobile money operators," Chen said.
By enabling WorldRemit to connect to over 100 million mobile accounts currently using Huawei's platform Ben Simmons Jersey , the deal is said to improve access to mobile money remittance for millions of people.
WorldRemit is the first international remittance company to partner directly with Huawei. The deal is expected to accelerate WorldRemit's technical integrations with new mobile money operators. Technical integration is frequently a barrier to offering international remittances for mobile network operators.
The technology works on both smartphones and basic handsets, so it is expected to be particularly successful in developing markets.
LOS ANGELES, July 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. researchers report that they have developed a new method for the direct conversion of simple hydrocarbon building blocks into valuable materials such as pharmaceuticals in a way that dependably creates the same chemical bonds and orientations.
Many molecules come in two mirror-image configurations, often labeled left-handed and right-handed. Usually, only one of the two is biologically desired Wilson Chandler Jersey , but the issue is more complicated than that, Uttam Tambar, study author and associate professor of Biochemistry at UT Southwestern, said in a statement.
"Unsaturated hydrocarbons contain only two types of bonds, carbon-hydrogen and carbon-carbon. It is very challenging to selectively transform the starting material hydrocarbon Joel Embiid Jersey , called the feedstock, into a product in which you have selectively transformed one carbon-hydrogen bond into a new bond in every molecule. We are able to do that," Tambar said.
According to the new study recently published online in Nature, a specially designed "chiral catalyst" is used to oxidize hydrocarbons into multifunctional compounds that are obtained in high purity and are readily converted into an assortment of molecules that will streamline the synthesis of future pharmaceutical drugs.
Researchers are not only dealing with left-or right-handed configuration, but also dealing with what position of the molecule is chemically modified.
Lead author of the study Leila Bayeh explained that "chiral catalyst" means that the catalyst that orchestrates the entire reaction has the proper orientation -- a left- or right-handed configuration as the situation requires -- in order to create the desired chemical transformation.

DAVOS Allen Iverson Jersey , Switzerland, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Opening up. Opportunity. Development. These were the three signals sent out Wednesday by China's top representative at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to the political and business leaders attending the global gathering.
Liu He, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Philadelphia 76ers Jersey , elaborated the path of China's economic development in the coming years and China's pledge to join hands with the rest of the world to create a brighter future for all.
CHINA TO OPEN UP FURTHER
Liu, who is also director of the General Office of the Central Leading Group for Financial and Economic Affairs, said China will encourage both inbound and outbound investment and business activities as it seeks greater economic and trade interactions with other countries and will work with them to establish an open world economy.
China will continue to let the market play a decisive role in resources allocation, and focus on better protection of property rights, especially intellectual property rights Evan Fournier Jersey , he said.
Beijing will further integrate with international trade rules and ease market access. It will substantially open up the services and financial sectors and create a more attractive investment environment.
Liu underscored the message that had been presented by Chinese President Xi Jinping in his report at the 19th National Congress of the CPC in October: that China will not close its door to the rest of the world but become more and more open.
"That's great!" said Rupert Adams, a partner of Alignvest UK LLP, an investment company. Adams called it a message from China on its continuous reform and opening up, and also a real practical action showing firm support to economic globalization.
OPPORTUNITIES, CONTRIBUTIONS TO GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
Liu said after decades of development Aaron Gordon Jersey , a large middle-income population has emerged in China, the biggest in the world, giving rise to a vast domestic market.
