when its performanc上海品茶微信 created a sensati

The first time the POB visited Shanghai was in 2005, when its performance of Giselle created a se

nsation in the city, says Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of Shanghai Grand Theatre.上海品茶微信

“It is very difficult to have the company come to China, because the cost is really high,” Zhang says.

上海品茶微信女神会所”We decided to make the best out of the opportunity, and prepared lectures, workshops and othe

r educational programs to allow the artists to communicate with the public in Shanghai.”

Tickets to the four Swan Lake shows sold out quickly, and the theater added dozens of temporary seats for each performance.

The two gala shows are selling very well, too,” she said before the shows.上海品茶微信

“Shanghai audiences not only enjoy classical ballets such as Swan Lake but have also show

上海品茶微信女神会所n a great deal of interest in contemporary dance. That’s why we made the request for the POB to present the

gala show featuring contemporary dance in Shanghai when we first discussed its tour plans.”

The gala show consists of three choreographers’ works. Blake Works I marks the first collaboration between choreo上海品茶微信

grapher William Forsythe and English musician James Blake. In the Night by Jerome Robbins is a romantic dan

上海品茶微信女神会所ce, consisting of three elegant duets to Chopin’s nocturne pieces. And The Seasons’ Canon features group dancing by

Crystal Pite to music from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, rearranged by Max Richter.

The POB is widely recognized for its excellence in classical ballet, but the company上海品茶微信女神会所

is equally strong in its interpretation of contemporary-dance works, Moglia

says. Contemporary dance productions now make up half of the POB’s performance programs.

oday, the POB has 154 dancers, including 17 danseurs etoiles (上海品茶微信

star dancers), a title awarded to only the most outstanding principal dancers.

上海品茶微信女神会所While most of the POB dancers come from the Paris Opera Ballet S

chool, the institution also recruits aspiring dancers from all over the world.

“We have dancers from 14 different countries,” Moglia says.

“One of them is from China, who used to study in H

ong Kong, and after three years of training at our school, he is now a dancer with the POB.”

One of the oldest ballet companies in the world, the POB is an integrated part of the Pari

s Opera. The ballet originated from earlier dance institutions and practices of the court of Louis XIV. The P

OB represents an important branch in the evolution of ballet, which originated from t

he royal courts of the Italian Renaissance. It was in France that ballet turned into an independent theatrical form

of art. After that, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Imperial Ballet of Russia also began to flourish.

Manipulated 上海品茶微信女神会所harming Hong Kong: Chin

The celebrations to mark the 22nd anniversary of the founding of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as well as its image as Asia’s World City were

上海品茶微信marred by a large mob of anti-government protestors who stormed and vandalized the Legislative Council complex in Admiralty.

It was a watershed moment for the SAR, as it let the world see who is upholding the rule of law and other core values of Hong Kong society and who is trying to undermine them.上海品茶微信女神会所

But as well as the shocking rampage on Monday, in which a roused rabble broke into Hong Kong’s legislature and defaced the portraits

of lawmakers and spray-painted slogans in the chamber, the marked silence of Hong Kong’s opposition lawmakers has also outraged m上海品茶微信

any in Hong Kong who expected them to at least publicly condemn the appalling display of lawlessness and wanton destruction.

Opposition lawmakers, however, have chosen not to denounce the hooliganism. Instead, they have taken it as another opportunity to criticize the SAR government.上海品茶微信

As a matter of fact, the anger among many of those resorting to violence has been inflamed by opposition lawmakers’ rude

上海品茶微信女神会所behavior inside the legislative chamber over the years and they have been emboldened in their unruliness. Now

these politicians do not have the courage to acknowledge their responsibility for the monster they have fostered and unleashed.

While the opposition camp has remained tight-lipped over the eruption of violence by those whose growing temerity they have helped to上海品茶微信女神会所

nurture, law-abiding Hong Kong residents have been horrified by such a brazen challenge to Hong Kong’s law and order.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said she hopes the wider Hong Kong community will com

e together to censure those who defiled the legislature and has vowed to bring to justice all those responsible.上海品茶微信女神会所

What has also been notable is the hypocrisy of some Western governments — the United Sta

tes and United Kingdom most prominently — which have called for a stop to the violence, as if they have had

nothing to do with it. But, looking back at the whole protest saga, they have been deeply involved in fueling it since its inception.

The consequences of these outside agitations have been the increasingly serious

illegal actions that undermine Hong Kong’s rule of law and social order and harm the fundamental interests of its residents.

That is why the Commissioner’s Office of the Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR issued a statement on Tuesday denouncing foreign

interference in Hong Kong affairs and demanding those Western governments stop fanning political unrest in Hong Kong.

The administration said that Changan Ford since

e 2013 has violated the Anti-Monopoly Law by setting up minimum resale prices for its downstream dealers in Chongqing.

This impinged on downstream dealers’ pricing autonomy and excluded a

ctice weakened competition between brands and encroached on consumers’ legitimate rights.

In accordance with the Anti-Monopoly Law, the market regulator fined Changan Ford four percent of its past -year sales in Chongqing.

The administration said it will continue to enforce the Anti-Monopoly L

aw, ensure fair competition in the market, create a sound business environment, pro

Multiple channels needed to keep job market healthy

The Chinese government has accorded priority to achieving stable and expanding employment

among its six stabilization tasks. The importance of stable employment has also been highligh

The government is making special efforts to stabilize and expand employment, especially be

cause of the intensifying Sino-US trade dispute and the increasing uncertainties in international trade.

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

ses are needed to tackle the current growth slowdown,” Elliot Harris, UN chief economist and assi

stant secretary-general for economic development, said Tuesday at a news conference. “It is increasingly clear that policies to pro

mote sustainable development will need to look beyond GDP growth and identify new and more robust measures of

economic performance that appropriately reflect the costs of inequality, insecurity and climate change.”

In response to slowing growth and subdued inflation, major central banks have eased their monetary policy stances. The recent mo

netary policy shifts have helped to stabilize global financial markets and capital flows to emerging economies.

However, the report cautions that a more protracted period of monetary accommodation could exacerbate fina

ncial imbalances, including further fueling debt accumulation and raising medium-term risks to financial stability.

A hearing on the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports will

 take place on June 17, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for Internation

al Economics in Washington, said the FDRA letter will add to the pressure on Trump to reach a deal with China.

“It will not be totally ignored,” Hufbauer said.

Over the past few weeks, business groups have voiced their concern that the escalating tariffs on Chinese imports risked knocking consumers off their feet.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, for example, said in a st

atement: “The administration’s decision to announce a tax on every product coming from China pu

ts America’s entire economy at risk. Americans’ entire shopping cart will get more expensive,” it said.

Also on Friday, shortly after the US said it would ban Hu

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipa

tion. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the company’s products and

a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conference on F

riday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and int

erference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.
