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.

The 2,200-square-meter place named Duoyun Bookstore is 239 meters above the ground. Book lovers上海千花坊品茶微信

can enjoy reading beside clouds and have a bird’s-eye view of both sides of the Huangpu River.

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!”

“There is no place in上海419orld that would toler

rate such atrocious, violent acts. Hong Kong will slide into the abyss if such acts of terror are allow

ed,” the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong SAR said in a statement.上海419

The most urgent and common aspiration of the Hong Kong p

ublic is to end violence and restore peace and order, the liaison office added.

上海419The past weekend saw illegal protests on Hong Kong Island, in K

owloon and the New Territories, as protesters adopted hit-and-run tactics.

A total of 149 people were arrested for taking part in the illegal protest上海419

s and suspicion of committing violent acts over the weekend, according to the police.

上海419女神会所Fifteen of them were classified as “extreme violent rioters”. They w

ere arrested in relation to the protests in Causeway Bay on Sunday night. Police sa

id they classified the 15 suspects because they had allegedly used “lethal weapons”.上海419

Deputy Police Commissioner Chris Tang Ping-keung said the police have zero tolerance for violence.

Meanwhile, around 4 pm on Monday, Airport Authority Hong Kong canceled the day’s remaining

上海419女神会所flights after thousands of protesters swarmed the main terminal building for a fourth day, the

biggest disruption yet to the major aviation hub since demonstrations began in early June.

The cancellations came after operations at Hong Kong Inter上海419

national Airport had become “seriously disrupted” by the sit-in, the authority said.

上海419女神会所On the same day, Hong Kong’s Secretary for Transport and Housing Frank

Chan Fan said in a news conference that the unlawful assembly will lead to en

ormous losses, damaging the economy and the livelihoods of airport staff, he said.

ng, center, talks with vi上海会所 US President Richa

Messages and signals had been going back and forth between the two countries for more than two years.

In an interview with Time magazine in October 1970, Nixon s上海会所品茶微信

aid: “If there is anything I want to do before I die, it is to go to China. If I don’t, I want my children to.”

In March 1971, Washington ended all restrictions on the use of US passports for travel to the Chinese mainland.上海会所

In April that year, Nixon terminated the 20-year embargo on trade between the two n

上海会所ations. He also ordered new steps to be taken to ease currency and shipping controls placed on China.

At a news conference on April 29, 1971, Nixon said he expected to visit China sometime in some capacity.

He added that he hoped to contribute to “a policy in which we can have a new relationship” with China.上海会所品茶微信

In August 1970, Chairman Mao Zedong invited the US writer Edgar Snow to Bei

上海会所jing, and on Oct 1, Mao placed Snow next to him on the reviewing stand at the pa

rade celebrating the 21st anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

In December that year, in an interview with Snow, Mao said China was c上海会所

onsidering allowing US citizens of all political persuasions to visit the country. Whe

n Snow asked whether a rightist such as Nixon, who represented the “monopoly capitalists”, would be allowed to v

isit, Mao said he would be happy to talk to Nixon, whether he came as president or as a tourist.上海会所

Snow’s interview appeared in Life magazine in April 1971.

上海会所品茶微信Nixon recalled in his book that it was now public knowledge that Mao would welcome him to Beijing.

China and the US moved closer to negotiations after largely not communicating with each other for 20 years.

According to Nixon’s memoirs, his administration atte上海会所

mpted to find an intermediary who could “pass word directly to Beijing”.

When Nixon visited Pakistan in July 1969, he told President Yahya Khan that the

U上海会所S had decided to try to normalize relations with China, and asked for his help as an intermediary.

The Pakistani leader said his country would do anything it could

to help, but added, “Old enemies do not easily become new friends.” When Khan visited th上海会所品茶微信

e White House in October 1970, Nixon used their meeting to establish the so-called Yahya Channel.

During a visit to Romania in 1969, Nixon also talked with Presid

ent Nicolae Ceausescu about the need for a new Sino-US relationship.上海会所品茶微信

Nixon’s toast at a dinner in Romania was the first occasion on which a US president had intentionally referred to Ch

ina by its official name, the People’s Republic of China, rather than Communist China.

Days before that, the c上海4195G unstaffed smar

bookstore opened in Xiong’an New Area, Hebei province. Driven by the adv

antages of 5G networking, book lovers can enter after having their face or their identity c上海419品茶微信

ard scanned, and obtain their favorite books any time, because technology has made 24-hour unstaffed service feasible.

上海419In Sanlitun, the heart of Beijing’s nightlife hub, at 11 pm on a sum

mer night, among the bustling crowds one store stands out. It is Sanlian Taofen Sa

nlitun Bookstore, a 24-hour bookstore that has become a landmark since it opened last year.上海419

The shop used to be a bar in a street reputed for its late-night carousing.

上海419品茶微信The night China Daily visited the shop, and alley that connects the north

ern and southern ends of Sanlitun Village was teeming with people, while in the 700-squ

are-meter bookstore with about 20,000 books, a couple of young people were sitting next to their laptops open.上海419

“We come here quite often,” says one of them, who lives nearby. “It’s th

e place I use most for finishing work each day. This is the only quiet place I can find arou

上海419品茶微信nd here where I do not need to worry about closing time, and you have the air conditioning in summer, too.”

Another of those in the shop, Zhao Xiaohan of Xiamen, Fujian province, who was on holi

day in Beijing, says: “I accidentally found this place while I was looking for a perch after a long day of trave上海419品茶微信

l. It’s a relaxing place, but many young people come in here after dinner time because it’s the summer holidays.”

上海419In addition to stocking the latest titles and best-sellers, Sanlian Taofen sells books in ancien

t Chinese and many works in English. To attract customers in an area that is popular with tourists it al

so sells souvenirs and ornaments representative of traditional Chinese culture.上海419品茶微信

Another tourist in the shop, who says she is from Moscow, was astounded by the shop’s ran

上海419ge of offerings. “I’ve never seen a bookstore like this. It’s got everything related to books you could ever want. Befo

re I came in I wasn’t even sure it was still open. I’ve never come across anything like this in Russia.”

A shop assistant says the design of the shop, on two floors, is inspired by Travelers a上海419品茶微信

The book, despite its t上海龙凤419 History in the Pa

 also includes profiles of many fictional animals, in a bid to stoke the imagination.

Parents who take their children to visit the Palace Museum are often bomb上海龙凤419女神会所

arded with questions about the decorations featuring sacred animals, according to

Bao Fang, one of the book’s editors from CITIC Press. “Children always want to know everything about these animals: W

上海龙凤419ho are friendly and which are vicious. Perhaps the book can help parents answer these questions.”

A kaleidoscope of mythical species are presented, including the auspicious unicorn called qilin; a

flying horse with dragon’s wings called longma, and the dragon-like marine animal called jiaolong.上海龙凤419女神会所

Zhang Jinshuo, chief curator of popular science at the National Zoological Museu

m of China, points out that, in recent years, translated works from the West have often been the favored res

上海龙凤419ource. The new book, he says, offers an opportunity for readers to appreciate a record of domestic natural history.

“The paintings’ exquisite details bring the creatures to life,” Zhang says. “They show a colorful world of natural history.”

If it rains heavily on this Wednesday night, some elderly Chinese will say it is because Zhin上海龙凤419女神会所

u, or the Weaving Maid, is crying on the day she met her husband Niulang, or the Cowherd, on the Milky Way.

Most Chinese remember being told this romantic tragedy when they were children on Qixi, or the Seventh Night Fe

上海龙凤419stival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month. This year it falls on Wednesday, August 7.Folklore Story

As the story goes, once there was a cowherd, Niulang, who lived with his elder brother and sister-in-law. But she disl

iked and abused him, and the boy was forced to leave home with only an old cow for company.上海龙凤419女神会所

The cow, however, was a former god who had violated imperial rules and was sent to earth in bovine form.

One day the cow led Niulang to a lake where fairies took a bath on ear

上海龙凤419th. Among them was Zhinu, the most beautiful fairy and a skilled seamstress.

The two fell in love at first sight and were soon married. They had a son and dau

ghter and their happy life was held up as an example for hundreds of years in China.

Yet in the eyes of the Jade Emperor, the Supreme Deity in Taoism, marriage betwee上海龙凤419女神会所

n a mortal and fairy was strictly forbidden. He ordered the heaven troop to catch Zhinu back.

Niulang grew desperate when he discovered Zhinu had been taken back to heave

上海龙凤419n. Driven by Niulang’s misery, the cow told him to turn its hide into a pair of shoes after it died.

He adds that if things like the somewhat vague portrayal of some a

nimals through error and imagination “are viewed in the bigger picture of history上海龙凤419女神会所

and society, it will still greatly help us to have a clearer view of our own cultural traditions”.

The business climate will be further optimized and the approval procedures for the set

The latest policy push comes after China unveiled a guideline on facilitating the sector in March, wh

Through the development of the platform economy, China aims to build a commodity circulation system that fits the m

Thanks to the domestic economic transformation, fast-improvin

Part of the platform economy, e-commerce has seen explosive expansion in China. Taking

e-commerce giant Alibaba as an example, its online sales within 24 hours on “Singles Day” or Nov 11 am

上海419论坛ounted to a record of $31.46 billion last year, exceeding that of Cyber Monday and Black Friday combined.

As I understand it, intercultural education is not one course, nor a-once-and-for-all effort. It should be

The suspension of th上海贵族宝贝travel permit progr

While addressing the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly on Sept 28, 2015, President Xi Jinping, in his state

上海贵族宝贝品茶微信ment titled “Working together to forge a new partnership of win-win cooperation and create a community of shared future for ma

nkind”, emphasized that, “In today’s world, all countries are interdependent and share a common future.”

Based on this judgment, he urged all countries to build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, and create a commu上海贵族宝贝

nity with a shared future for mankind based on five principles: building partnerships in which countries treat each other as eq

uals, engage in mutual consultation and show mutual understanding; creating a security architecture featuring fa

上海贵族宝贝irness, justice, joint contribution and shared benefits; promoting open, innovative and inclusive development th

at benefits all; increasing inter-civilization exchanges to promote harmony, inclusiveness and respect for dif

ferences; and building an ecosystem that puts Mother Nature and green development first.上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

Given the nature of the current international community and the inertia of internationa

l politics, characterized by the law of the jungle and zero-sum games, there is reason enough to doubt th

上海贵族宝贝e enforceability of Xi’s beautiful ideas. It seems humankind is in a dilemma, the dilemma of choosing between a c

ommunity with a shared future or a community with no future. But there is only one correct choice.

To transform the current international community into a community with a shared future for mankind, countries acr上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

oss the world have to take a variety of measures, including political, economic, security and environmental measures. F

or instance, Xi proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013 with the aim of improving infrastructure connectivity bet

上海贵族宝贝ween Asia and Europe and Africa, and thus help build a community with a shared future for mankind.

Equally important, intercultural communication can play an

irreplaceable role in this historical undertaking. On the one hand, it can foster awareness of shar上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

ed economic, security and environmental interests among citizens of different countries and, as a result, the gro

wing awareness among people of shared interests will constantly expand the foundation of a community with a shar

上海贵族宝贝ed future for mankind. On the other hand, intercultural communication can accumulatively foster common core values

such as peace, development, harmony in diversity, equity, justice, democracy and freed

om, all of which are fundamental to the survival of a community of shared future.

上海夜生活品茶微信ions and thinking methods, on the premise of respecting the employees’ personalities,” Yang said.

“Secondly, I think a leader should have a relatively strong communication ability and analytical ability.”

Moreover, a leader needs to have decisive judgment skills and execution ability. “A leader should improve the motivation of empl

上海夜生活品茶微信oyees, put the right people in right positions. We accept different characters, different ideas and different cultures.”

But how to put the staff in different positions and mak

e full use of them is critical to the development of the whole company, she said.

上海夜生活The relationship between China and the world is changing in ways large and small, triggered b

y factors ranging from the rebalancing of China’s economy toward services and domestic con

sumption to rising trade tensions and ASEAN’s emergence as an attractive sourcing destination.上海夜生活品茶微信

Those factors are explored in a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, China and the world: Inside the dynamics of a chang

ing relationship. Most important, the research finds that China’s exposure to the world in trade, technology and c

上海夜生活apital has fallen in relative terms, while the world’s exposure to China has increased.

Moreover, although the report focuses more on manufacturing than services, several of the trends the researchers ide

ntified will be crucial across a broad spectrum of industries – with potentially destabilizing effects.

She also knows women have inborn talent in dealing with people better. “Women can give play to their own adv上海夜生活品茶微信

上海夜生活ions, which women are good at.” Moreover, women can understand a point about anything easily, she said.

Yang loves traveling and cooking in her spare time. In her view, travel could be helpful to work, as contact

with different people and sights of different sceneries could stimulate thinking and broaden horizons.上海夜生活品茶微信
