Shen was followed by Gan Jianping, managing partn

tner of Qiming Venture Partners, Xu Xin, founding partner of Capital Today, and Tong Sh

ihao, managing partner of GGV Capital. They ranked fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.

The list was ranked by investors’ portfolio companies that have gone public or been acquired for at least $200 million over

the past five years, or that have raised additional funding at a valuation of $400 million or more.

“A record number of international investors, pa

rticularly from China, and women investors are gradually changing the image of the Sil

icon Valley venture capitalist,” said Alex Konrad, associate editor at Forbes, in an editor’s pick.

He noted that after years of Midas dominance, the reign of Facebook and Twitt

er is over, as those deals and their well-known investors make way for a new generation.

“The increasing presence of Chinese investors in the Midas List is a solid reflection of the scal

e and vigor of the Chinese economy,” said Zhou Xuan, director of and a professor with the priva

te investment funds institute of the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

UK lawmakers reject government’s divorce deal for third time

UK lawmakers on Friday rejected the government’s divorce deal with the European Union for a third time, leaving Brita

in just two weeks to decide between a long delay to Brexit and an abrupt no-deal departure from the bloc.

Lawmakers in Britain’s House of Commons voted 286-344 against the withdrawal ag

reement struck between Prime Minister Theresa May and the EU, rebuffing her plea to “put aside self and pa

rty” and “accept the responsibility given to us by the British people” to deliver Brexit.

A visibly frustrated May said the vote had “grave” implications.

“The legal default now is that the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union o

n 12 April — in just 14 days’ time,” she said. “This is not enough time to agree, legislate for and ratify a deal, and yet t

he House has been clear it will not permit leaving without a deal. And so we will have to agree an alternative way forward.”

His arrest may have an impact on upcoming Indian election

due to take place in May.

The discovery of the alleged fraud and Modi’s refusal to return to India to face criminal charges has in

creased pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — no relation to Nirav Modi — who promised to fight corruption in India.

Tuesday’s arrest and the possibility of extradition could help to improve the Prime Minister’s tarnished image.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the principle opposition party Congress, has repeatedly attacked PM Modi on his failure to bring fugitives back to India.

In 2016, liquor baron Vijay Mallya left the country owning an estimated $1.6 billion to 17 Indian banks.

The process for Mallya’s extradition to India is ongoing. He has denied fleeing the country ov

er his debts and described charges of fraud and money laundering as “false, fabricated and baseless.”

After rejecting May’s Brexit deal last week, MPs voted in favor

  tension to the withdrawal process, given the unlikelihood of agreeing a deal before Mar

ch 29. May is expected to ask the remaining 27 EU member states for a delay at this week’s summit.

  It’s possible the EU may propose a long extension to the Brexit process and require the UK to take part in the upcoming European elections in May.

  Downing Street has used the prospect of a lengthy delay — which could be used to force a second

referendum — to try to persuade Brexiteer lawmakers that they risk losing Brexit altogether if they don’t vo

te for May’s deal.The man who opened fire on two New Zealand mosques last week may have succeeded in killing 50 pe

ople, but the country’s leader has promised to deny him the one thing he truly wanted: Notoriety.

  ”You will never hear me mention his name,” Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told the New Zealand Parliament Tuesday.

  ”He is a terrorist, he is a criminal, he is an extremist, but he will, when I speak, be nameless, and

to others I implore you: Speak the names of those who were lost rather than the name of the man who took t

hem. He may have sought notoriety but we in New Zealand will give him nothing — not even his name.”

Key GOP senator with aviation oversight says he would “pr

  Republican Sen. John Thune — who has oversight of the aviation industry and the FAA as a member of the Aviation subcommit

tee of the Commerce and Transportation Committee — said Tuesday he would “prefer flying on some other plane” rather than Boeing’s 737 MAX 8.

  Thune, who is also a the second-ranking Senate Republican leader, seemed to suggest he would be open to ground

ing the planes if the evidence pointed to it, but stopped short of saying the planes should be grounded at this po

int unless and until an NTSB investigation finds there is a problem with the plane.

  He said he will also wait for the investigation before considering hearings in

his subcommittee. He said he has not talked to anyone at Boeing about his concerns.

  Reporter: Would you safe flying a Super Max 8 right now? Would you fly on it?

  Senator Thune: “Uhh…well, I guess I would uh, probably like everybody else, prefer flying on some other plane.”

After 10 years of fastidious work, Zhang Weiren, a fruit

grower in Laixi of Qingdao, East China’s Shandong province, has been able to grow peach trees into the shapes of tab

les and chairs. The price of one of his peach branch chairs has now reached more than 20,000 yuan ($2,987).

In a farm in Jimo district of Qingdao, Zhang, 65, says that he plans to grow the tables and chairs at a ratio of four to one: four chairs to each table.

Zhang said that he started planting peach trees 15 years ago. He used to be a carpen

ter and often made wooden furniture, so, when planting peach trees, he liked to collect the roots of va

rious materials and use them for making ornaments, tables, chairs, figures, flowers, birds, and other root carvings.

As the raw materials became scarce however, Zhang had another idea, asking, “Can I p

lant tables and chairs myself?” Although his family were initially skeptical, Zhang persisted.

The Ministry of Civil Affairs has urged national-level

industrial organizations and chambers of commerce to lower membership fees and refr

ain from imposing unreasonable charges to reduce the burden on businesses.

The ministry said in a statement on Feb 3 that it will conduct the annual examination

of national-level social organizations, and such organizations are also expected to report fee adjustments in their annual reports.

The lowering of membership fees will be an important criteria for the ministry in evaluating na

tional organizations. Other criteria include whether the organizations have imposed charges against regulations or been found to have m

isused funds. Those who fail the evaluations will be disqualified, the ministry said.

Social organizations found to be engaged in activities that harm national reunification, national security, ethnic un

ity or jeopardize the national interest will also be disqualified and punished according to law, the ministry said.

A third-party will conduct random on-site verification of information submitted, it added.
