Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut

Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut

Shares of Luckin Coffee, a fast-growing rival to Starbucks in China, rose 20 percent in their US stock market debut Friday.

The Chinese company, which opened its first store in Beijing less than two years ago, has 2,370

locations and plans to surpass the 3,700 stores Starbucks has in China by the end of the year.

But unlike Starbucks, Luckin is losing money.

It brought in $125 million in revenue last year, but spent much more than

that on coffee beans, store rent and other costs. Last year, it lost $475 million.

Most of Luckin’s stores are small, have few seats and are used mainly as a place to pick up mobile orders.

It also offers delivery in 30 minutes and promises a refund for delays or spilled drinks.

Museums are not only there for enjoyment; they are education, and as such should be free.

While I can appreciate the enormous costs involved in maintainin

g and obtaining collections, let the wealthiest 1 percent of the country pay for it.

The Met in NYC is technically free; they ask you to give what you can afford. But the ide

a of a person or child interested in art not being able to view it because of cost is morally wrong.

Free entrance does not attract people, nor does it encourage them to appreciate it.

Sure, there are exceptions to this, but by and large human beings tend to look up to things that are difficult or costly to access.

A better option is to charge fees for regular visitors but provide free ti

ckets as prizes for high-achieving students and others who are likely to appreciate the reward.

Many countries along the Belt and Road have high moun

tains, deserts, oceans and a lack of accurate meteorological information. The number o

f meteorological disasters in the regions is more than double the global average, the administration said.

Wei Caiying, deputy general-director of the National Satellite Meteoro

logical Center, said that real-time disaster monitoring by meteorological satellites coul

d provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

“Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a threat to life and property. T

racking their path could help local authorities decide how to proceed with evacuations,” she said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Support Mechanism for int

ernational users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stanc

es and objectives in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And t

he fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said his go

vernment had delivered a miracle result in Saturday’s election where it

unexpectedly looks set to retain office, saying the victory was for the “quiet Australians” who supported him.

“I have always believed in miracles!” Morrison told an e

xuberant room of Liberal Party supporters around midnight.

The coalition government is in position to remain in power with mor

e than half the votes counted on Saturday, though it is uncl

ear whether it can govern with an outright majority and final results may not be known this weekend.

Huawei said in a statement on Thursday that restricting t

 company from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger.

“Instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior, yet more expensive alternatives, leav

ing it lagging behind in 5G deployment and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”

The company said it is ready and willing to engage with the US government to come up with effective measures to ensure product security.

In response to the ban on Huawei buying parts from US companies, the company said such a deci

sion will “do significant economic harm to the US companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of t

housands of US jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist in the global supply chain”.

Wang Peng, deputy head of the China Center for Information Industry Development, said the new US moves will disrupt the whole global electronics in

ustry and hurt a string of US companies that supply chips and other components to Huawei.
