(1) Patricia Zengerle and Matt Spetalnick, Exclusive: Fearing Espionage, US Weighs Tighter Rules on Chinese Students.

(" 'Every Chinese student who China sends here has to go through a party and government approval process,” one senior U.S. official told Reuters. “You may not be here for espionage purposes as traditionally defined, but no Chinese student who’s coming here is untethered from the state.'  The White House declined comment on the new student restrictions under review")

My comment: Because it is still under consideration by the executive branch, i WOULD NOT PAY MUCH ATTENTION. bUT THE QUOTATION IS SURPRISING TO ME. i DO NOT KNOW WHETHER IT IS TRUE.

Quote:

(a) "The world's top hog producer and pork consumer last week placed its largest order for American pork since the trade war began, U.S. Department of Agriculture data showed on Thursday [Nov 29].  

"The purchases are a signal that an outbreak of African swine fever is raising concerns of an eventual supply shortfall, potentially superseding trade tensions between the world's two largest economies, brokers and traders said

(b) "China in the week ended Nov 22 bought 3,348 tonnes of pork to be shipped this year, USDA said, its largest purchase for the current season since February.

in the same week: "China also bought 9,384 tonnes of pork for shipment next year, accounting for 72 percent of the total weekly sales to all countries.

"Combined, they were the biggest weekly sales to China since April 2017, sending US hog futures LHG9 up more than 4 percent.

(c) " 'Pork is abundantly supplied right now in China; prices are low. That doesn't mean there will be plenty of pork in China next year,' said Brett Stuart, president of U.S. advisory Global AgriTrends.

Note: "US hog futures LHG9"
(a) In US, only Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) offers lean hog (LH) futures.
(b) delivery month

(table)

Reasons unclear for the code -- just tradition.
(c) LHG9 means lean hog futures to be delivered in February 2019.
