13,400 cases and issued 15.15 million yuan ($2.2 million) in fines for improper garbage disposal. 上海夜生活
The number of cases and scale of fines have been increasing in past years.
上海夜生活品茶微信Fu Yong, deputy head of the urban management office in the Babaoshan area in Shijingshan district, said they have b

“Every year, companies in the region have to sign trash disposal contracts, and they should follow 上海夜生活
the classification rules accordingly. Otherwise, the sanitation departments will not collect their trash,” he said.
上海夜生活In addition, the city government has asked each district to build at least one waste s

Now Beijing has 224 residential communities that are doing garbage sorting.
上海夜生活Wang Jian, a waste sorting supervisor at a residential community in Shij

cordance with categories including recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste. 上海夜生活品茶微信
“They can use their points to redeem rewards like waste bins or bags,” she said. “On
ce people get used to throwing waste by category, they will continue to do so even without a reward.” 上海夜生活
Li Weigang, an official with the waste classification and treatment depart
ment at Shijingshan district, said several State-owned enterprises－including Shougang Gr
上海夜生活品茶微信oup, which used to be a major steel producer in the capital－have entered the waste treatment industry.
Companies’ participation has helped authorities become familiar with garbage classification and treatment after sorting, whi

World-class overseas universities are welcome to run schools in cooperation with Chinese inst
itutions or establish independent educational services of their own in Hainan province on a pilot basis, acc 上海419论坛女神会所
ording to a circular issued by the Ministry of Education and Hainan’s provincial government recently.
上海419论坛It said the country will target the tropical island for international education inn
ovation, deepen its educational reform in an all-around way and further open th
e sector to make Hainan a vivid example of open and innovative development of the educational sector. 上海419论坛
Hainan, which is developing the country’s newest and largest free trade zone, will be a national pilot area where a ne
w, open system for running schools will be set up, in addition to a joint examination an
上海419论坛女神会所d approval mechanism for overseas joint ventures and cooperation projects, the circular said.
It added that as long as risks are controlled, the island province will be encouraged to set up international high scho
ols and kindergartens on a pilot basis to implement international education.
The document also noted that when conditions mature, overseas engineering universities an 上海419论坛
d vocational colleges will be allowed to run pilot schools independently in Hainan, which will also explor
e allowing leading overseas business conglomerates to develop educational services on their own.
上海419论坛女神会所The new policy also gives a green light to overseas institutions to establish independent Sino-
foreign medical and health services in Hainan, according to the circular.
Furthermore, the pilot plan will encourage leading Chinese and foreign institutions of higher learning and scie
ntific research centers to develop a cluster of higher learning institutions and syne 上海419论坛
rgetic platforms which will integrate production, teaching and scientific research in Hainan.
An education innovation consortium – which combines research branches, laboratories and incubation centers that focus 上海419论坛女神会所
on such key areas as ocean economy, tropical agriculture, healthcare, tourism
and cultural innovation – will receive government support, according to the circular.
For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig
ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove
rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419
This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge
sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow
上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.
But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that
China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi
culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419
For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen
t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef
forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an
d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund
amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.
Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a
fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

ost. “The silver lining of US pressure is that China will be forced to innovate and be self-suffi上海会所
cient,” Pan said. “The US cutting off exchanges will slow us down a little, but will not stop our strides for progress.”
上海会所品茶微信Given the uncertainty of the situation, scientists and scholars around the world fear that the worl
d will be divided into two major blocs, like during the Cold War. “Splitting the world into two syst
ems and hyping the clash of civilizations will be disastrous for all humanity,” Pan said.上海会所
“The current international systems were mostly put in place after World War II, but this world
上海会所品茶微信order did not anticipate the astonishing rise of China,” he said. “As a result, some norms within the current glob
al systems must change in order to accommodate the new dynamics, a process in which China is willing to help.”
China has been slowly and sincerely contributing its own standards
and knowledge to global governance, especially in regard to the social impact and上海会所
governance of artificial intelligence, biosciences and other emerging technologies, Pan said.
上海会所”China is not a disrupter, but a contributor to the current world order,” he said.
China’s economic growth weakened to 6.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter, but remained stable on the wh
ole in the first half of this year at 6.3 percent, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday.上海会所品茶微信
The country’s industrial output rose by 6.3 percent year-on-year i
n June, compared with 5 percent in the previous month, official data showed.
But in the first half of this year, industrial output growth dropped to 6 percent, down from 6.5 percent in the first quarter.上海会所品茶微信
Fixed-asset investment growth was 5.8 percent in the first six month

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno
wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信
About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin
上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year
posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.
According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信
mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be
上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.
The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in
2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信
14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.
上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi
s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.
“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信
1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.
上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint
ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma
o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信
Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin
上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu
rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.
According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信
ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col
上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.
“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp
ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.
“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th
e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le
ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”
Pulitzer Prize-winning Chinese American Zhou Long premiered his new c
oncerto Classics of Mountains and Seas at the Shanghai Symphony Hall on June 22.上海后花园
The concerto was performed by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Shui Lan. The composition, whic
上海后花园女神会所h is based on a theme of Chinese mythology, was commissioned by the SSO as part of a series of new creations aim
ed at promoting Chinese culture to international audiences, according to Zhou Ping, head of the symphony.
The premiere of the concerto also marked the completion of the Symphonic Music in China 1949-2019 project which was上海后花园女神会所
jointly launched in 2017 by the SSO and the Shanghai Music Publishing House. The project consists of 70 sy
mphonic works which document the development of symphonic music in China.
上海后花园The collection of music albums and publications will be released in September
, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Born in Beijing in 1953, Zhou Long is known internationally for his works that blend Easte上海后花园
rn and Western music. According to Beijing-based music critic Li Hong, Zhou Long was among the first ge
neration of musicians from China to study abroad after the nation’s opening-up in the 1980s.
上海后花园女神会所Zhou Long’s composition for Madame White Snake, an opera based on Chinese folklor
e, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2011. He was the first Chinese composer to win the prize.
Classics of Mountains and Seas is a compilation of mythical Chinese tales. The classic text da
tes back as early as the 4th century BC, but the surviving form is traced to the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220). The上海后花园
book is divided into 18 sections, but instead of following the narrative of the original text, Zhou Long created a con

this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E
arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en上海会所
hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.
上海会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it
took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc
h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.上海会所
The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict
上海会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig
ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.上海会所
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea
上海会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ
ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res
toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien上海会所
ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im
ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 上海会所品茶微信
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa
上海会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan

The program, which matches students with common interests and hobbi

上海品茶微信女神会所”The program is actually a win-win situation for both parties. It’s the best opportunity for learning about new lang

After that the student has to present a written application to continue in the program.
上海品茶微信女神会所A nationwide wave of arrests of immigrants facing deporta
tion will commence over the weekend, US President Donald Trump said on Friday, confi
rming that the plan, intended to discourage a surge of Central American migrants, was on track after a delay.
The operation is expected to target hundreds of families in 10 cities that have recentl上海品茶微信女神会所
y been ordered deported by an immigration court but have not yet left the country.
上海品茶微信Trump revealed the operation on Twitter last month and then
postponed it. It is unusual for the government to announce deportation operations ahead of time.
“People are coming into this country illegally, we are taking them out legally,” Trump tol上海品茶微信女神会所
d reporters on Friday, calling it a “major operation” that would mainly focus on removing criminals.
In a typical week, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests thousands of immigrants who are staying in t
上海品茶微信he country illegally, according to government data. Most of those arrests are made without any advance publicity.
Immigrant advocates have said advance word of the weekend raids could help some of those targeted to evade arrest.
But the president, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said he wa上海品茶微信女神会所
s not concerned that the advance notice could help targeted immigrants evade arrest.
“If the word gets out, it gets out,” he said.
Since Trump first spoke of the plan, a number of city mayors, nearly上海品茶微信
all Democrats, have repeated their long-standing policies of not cooperating with ICE
officials on deportations and have advertised helplines people can call to understand their rights.上海品茶微信女神会所
Democratic lawmakers, among others, have also sought to inform immigrants of their rights, telling them not to open their door
for ICE unless agents present a court-issued warrant, and not to say or sign anything before speaking with a lawyer.

war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu
上海会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.
The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment
. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp上海会所女神会所
rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as
Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for
上海会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i
ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.上海会所女神会所
Essential to improve investment environment
上海会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u
p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi
ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p上海会所
roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.
But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count
上海会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co
mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r
emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm
artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.上海会所女神会所
China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain
committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com上海会所
panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d
上海会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo
rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.
