BEIJING: Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei is all set to launch Mate 20 X 5G smartphone on July 26 in China and has started extending invitations for the launch event too.

The phones features a 7.2-inch FHD+ display and runs on EMUI 9.1 (Android Pie).

Cuba Libre is a staple cocktail, but Cuba’s signature rum — Havana Club — has been outlawed from liquor stores in the US. The ban dates back to the revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power. The Havana Club brand has been coowned by French company Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government since 1993. The recipe was crafted by the Arechabala family, which owned the brand since its inception in 1934. They were, however, forced out as the company was appropriated in a nationalisation drive. In 1994, the Arechabalas sold the recipe to erstwhile rival Bacardi, which was forced to shift base to Puerto Rico after the communist revolution. Since then, Bacardi has been selling its own version of the rum under the disputed trade name.

In March 2014, Iran blocked WhatsApp saying its parent company Facebook’s CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg was an ‘American Zionist’. Incidentally, WhatsApp was co-founded by Jan Koum, an Ukranian Jewish refugee who moved to the US from Kiev in 1992.

In June 2016, days after his inauguration, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte pledged to ‘clean up’ Filipino society. He mandated the country’s police to crack down on drug trade and tackle homosexuality — a crime punishable with the death sentence. In January 2017, the government decreed a ban on Pornhub in an effort to stop child pornography. Ironically, the age of consent in the Philippines is 12 years. The decision to scrub pornographic content from the country’s networks came on the back of a 2016 Pornhub survey that found that Filipinos were the most avid viewers of X-rated content on its platform. On an average, Filipinos spent 12 minutes and 45 seconds per session – two minutes more than South Africans, who came second.
