The US-China Trade War Cuts Off Huawei From US Tech Business

Huawei Just Got Canceled By The United States

The Chinese phone manufacturer is going to have to pull a few tricks out of their sleeves.

This past Monday, the trade war between the United States and China finally made its way to the tech market. The Chinese-based tech company Huawei was placed on a ban list by the United States government, meaning no American company can do any form of business with the new emerging phone manufacturing giant.

Huawei has an interesting relationship with the United States and their tech.

All of Huawei's phones run on the Android operating system, which is owned by Silicon Valley juggernaut Google. Since Google is an American company, Huawei phones will no longer be able to receive Android phone updates, which is crucial to making their phones work.

This new legislation is going to be a serious blow to the new emerging tech giant.

Huawei is currently the second largest phone manufacturer in the world, coming second only to Samsung. To make matters worse, much of their success in the phone market is a result of the Android operating system and its easy user accessibility.

Without this operating system, questions are now being raised on what will happen to customers who currently have Huawei phones. Will the phones no longer work after 90 days? Will the phones be exempt from the law because they were bought in the past? How will Huawei phones be able to function if this ban holds up?

In addition to Huawei no longer having access to the Android operating system license, Huawei can no longer buy American-manufactured phone parts that are vital for their development. Phone chip manufacturers Qualcomm, Intel, and Broadcom have all severed ties with Huawei, putting even more pressure on Huawei's future.

Luckily for Huawei, it seems like they have been preparing for the potential fallout of the trade war between the United States and China. A Huawei spokesperson said that in anticipation of this ban, Huawei has been stockpiling phone parts in the last few months. This move would allow them to maintain productions of their phones.

This solution, however, is a temporary one.

It is unknown how long the trade war is going to last, and the stockpiled parts are going to eventually run out.

Huawei was on its way to becoming the top phone manufacturer in the world. The setbacks that the American blacklisting has caused Huawei seem to be massive. Time will tell how long this trade war is going to last, and whether or not Huawei can find ways to weather this financial storm.

8 Lyrics From T. Swift's New Song 'You Need To Calm Down' That Will Give Your Instagram The Strong Female Empowerment It Needs

Let this girl-power ballad spark your insta-piration for your next post.

If you've ever experienced cyber-bullying, or if you ever feel caught up in our over-critical society, Tay Swift's new song "You Need To Come Down" is the song for you. While we live in a world with free speech, and especially as a journalist I am all for that, sometimes its best to think before you speak - or tweet. We should all try to be understanding and kind no matter what the circumstance, even if it means not clicking send on some Twitter rants. These lyrics are a friendly reminder to stay calm and focus on what's important.

1. "Say it in the street, that's a knock-out. But you say it in a tweet, that's a cop out."

If this isn't the call-out message of the year on cyber-bullying (in song, at least), I don't know what is.

2. "But I've learned a lesson that stressin' and obsessin' about somebody else is no fun."

We all need to remember at times that getting mixed up in drama isn't fruitful for our lives or growth.

3. "Like can you not step on my gown? You need to calm down."

Don't let the haters control you or stop you from living, just tell those voices to calm down.

4. "Why are you mad when you could be glad?"

Focusing on hate or being critical can be exhausting, and it's better to focus on the good things.

5. "Sunshine on the street at the parade, but you would rather be in the dark ages."

Show people that going into the light is so much easier than they realize when they are stuck in a drama-cloud.

6. "You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace."

Instead of trying to have the last word in every fight, try to be the peace-maker instead.

7. "Control your urges to scream about all the people that you hate."

Hate never made the world go 'round. Hate was never what Jesus spoke about. And some things just aren't worth using energy to yell at.

8. "But we all know now we all got crowns."

Don't be afraid to show that you are a princess and no one can take your crown.

This song is not just a collection of Insta-quotes, but also a call-out for all of us to live better lives, to remain a positive and uplifting human in this cancel culture world. By no means should we remain silent on important issues or let people get away with bad things, but we can choose to not get mixed up in petty drama that won't matter in a week. Let's agree to be kind to one another.

Summer Break Just Started And I Wish It Would Stop Already

Is it August yet?

Going into my third year of college, you'd think that I'd be looking forward to my summer breaks, or any breaks that I can snag a chance at getting. But the sad reality is, summer breaks now consist of working and stressing about the next semester. I'm sure not everyone feels this way, whether you're in school or not.

But for me, summer breaks are just depressing.

Most of the time, my summers have to do with making plans with people that always fall through, or not having enough time in the week to execute such plans. Many people are busy working, at an internship, or out of the country for the summer.

If you're in your hometown (and if it's boring and dry like mine), it's not a place you look forward to coming back to every break. I also sit and worry about what internships I didn't get and how I'm not gaining any experience, so that makes for a stressful vacation.

I also find in the summer months that my skin is at its worst. She just doesn't cooperate with the treatment I'm giving her and I'm always sweating, so that doesn't help too much either. It's like no matter what I do, my skin continues to disrespect me.

It's unfortunate to find yourself in this position because I really used to enjoy my summers.

I loved being home, going on little trips, and sometimes, dare I say it, I liked working at my minimum-wage job at one point. Now, I feel like I'm in this constant drought of nothingness and staring outside my window every morning.

But I cannot blame this solely on my environment. I have to share some of the blame with myself. I could have planned my summer out, I could have found better people to hang out with, I could have applied to a thousand internships and maybe gotten at least one of them. But sometimes things don't go the way you want it to, and that is okay.

Maybe I'll do better next summer, who knows.
