A novel way: Booksto上海千花坊re high in the clouds

Shanghai’s highest bookstore opened at 52nd floor of Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest skyscraper.

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊

anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

A bold vision was outlined, as President Xi Jinping and Sheikh Mohamed 上海千花坊

Another series of milestones stemmed from the UAE-China Economic Fo 上海千花坊r

um, where 19 agreements and memorandums were signed by a broad range of sectors betwe

en numerous UAE and China businesses. This forum showed the level of sophistication achieved in the UAE-Chi

legation and business leaders from the respective nations. Such achievements are the result of decades of hard work, sinc

There was a fitting send-off toward the end of the visit, as a celebration was held marking th

number of Emirati and Chinese businesses, five more to cap off an extremely fruitful trip to China.

In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington

上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef

fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.

Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊

ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.

上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash

ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.

This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊

t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.

上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe

rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.

Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊

But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h

is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所

ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos

上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.

Liu Bingjiang, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment’s air quality management department, said at the same fo上海千花坊品茶微信

上海千花坊er the same market conditions against those investing little into environmental protection.

The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess

ment on steel producers when granting exemptions from production restrictions, he said.上海千花坊

Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.

上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and

roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.

More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊

tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.

上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas

to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.

Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni

g and Research Institute, said that to achieve low-carbon emissions involves upgrades in上海千花坊

the whole process of steel production, and more attention should be paid to procedures such as raw materials tra

上海千花坊品茶微信nsportation and storage, which often generate emissions that are difficult to contain.

China’s top legislature on Saturday passed a law on vaccine administration, which stipulates the “strictest” manageme

nt by requiring a whole-process supervision system and t上海千花坊品茶微信

oughening penalties on producing and selling fake or substandard vaccines.

The law was adopted after the third reading at a bimonthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, which closed on Saturday.

As the country’s first legislation dedicated to vaccine management, the new law will go into effect on Dec 1, 2019.

According to the law, supervision of vaccines will cover the whole process, from vaccine development, production and distribution, to vaccination.上海千花坊

Specialized inspection teams of pharmaceutical professionals will be established at the central and provincial levels to conduct the supervision work.

上海千花坊品茶微信An electronic information system will be set up to make all information of vaccines trackable, such as production and packa

ge information of vaccines, period of validity, date of vaccination, and medical workers who conduct the vaccination and the recipients. The re

cords must be retained for at least five years after the expiry of the vaccine, according to the law.

To increase the transparency of the industry, vaccine license holders are required to publish vaccine information on thei上海千花坊品茶微信

r websites in a timely manner, including product instructions and labels, official approval, recall in

formation, inspections and punishment received and compulsory insurances covered.

Aside from strengthening the whole-process supervision, the new la

w also toughens penalties on the production and sale of fake or substandard vaccines.

It stipulates that people whose violations constitute a crime shall bear heavier criminal responsibility in accordance with the law.

had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.上海千花坊

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transde

By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oc上海千花坊

上海千花坊senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business environ

ment, as the country is determined to develop an advanced intellectual property protection legal regime.

“上海千花坊We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, manag

ing partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.

Despite the uncertaint女神会所y caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he beli

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for

IP protectio上海千花坊女神会所n, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the int

ellectual property rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tr上海千花坊

ade dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

Although for those fr上海千花坊品茶微信or low-incom

income househol上海千花坊品茶微信ds, the exam is undoubtedly the most likely means of upw

ard social mobility, and entry to a prestigious university may indeed be a life-changer.

This year, 10.31 million students sat the exams, the largest number since 2008. Nearly 75 perce

nt of them will be able to enter a university; the percentage was only 6 back in 1979 and 34 in 1998.

But while fortune may have smiled on them, the growing num

ber who will graduate should bear in mind that they will face greater competition when trying to land

a job after graduation, although they will also enjoy more autonomy in seeking a job than their predecessors.

Universities are under heavy pressure to reform so their graduates are better equipped for life after they graduate. Since it i

s easier to enter a university now, it is neither fair nor rational to select different students using the same test,

and universities of different levels and types should target students with different talents.

At the news confer上海千花坊品茶微信 five typical cases.

Liu Zhongyi, 上海千花坊品茶微信head of the ministry’s Criminal Investigation Bureau, explained how such crimes usually ha

ppen: Chinese suspects collude with their foreign accomplices to deceive women, who usually are between 20 and 30 y

ears old, offering them good-paying jobs in businesses such as tourism or good marriage prospects.

Then they assist the women in entering China illegally and send them to their Chinese accomplices, who offer lodging, transp

ort them to different parts of the country and force them into illegal marriages or prostitution.

Chen Shiqu, deputy director of the bureau, said the price for each woman who w

as sold ranged from 100,000 to 180,000 yuan ($14,545 to $26,180), based on age, appearance and nationality.

He said the Chinese police were careful to protect the legitimate rights of the wo

men and distinguish them from those who illegally crossed Chinese borders for other purposes.
