Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten
上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.
Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信
Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la
上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent－a significant inc
rease from the current 0.7 percent－of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.
The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所
na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f
上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.
And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所
ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R
ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信
The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a
sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr
上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and
other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit
al across emerging markets. As a result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for glo上海会所
bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

France, July 16 — Germany’s Ursula von der Leyen was elected to b

“In the past, 7-Eleven was mostly used by male customers to buy beverages and fast foo

“However, as the role and usage of 7-Eleven stores has changed in recent years, 7-Eleven

上海夜生活According to Lawson, the company had already stopped selling such magazines at outlets in Okin

上海419论坛Just as Deng Xiaoping said, some Western countries use issues su

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t上海419论坛
hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e
nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:上海419论坛女神会所
State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co
mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.上海419论坛
After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits
as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.
Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel
ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.上海419论坛女神会所
Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo
wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub上海419论坛女神会所
sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.
Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev上海419论坛
er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this
year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account
s for less than 10 percent of the planned total. Only four provinces had started the job.上海419论坛女神会所
There are vested interests behind this. For example, certain local government
e promotional campaigns on video-streaming sites has borne fruit. For example, the restored version of the 2010 TV histori
上海千花坊cal comedy-drama, Li Wei the Magistrate 3, on Youku has gained surprisingly high views that are mainly from
the fans of actress Zhao Liying, as the show starred their idol long before she joined the A-list.上海千花坊女神会所
During this year’s Spring Festival holiday, iQiyi released 25 restored classical works, like The Kangxi Dyna
上海千花坊sty and garnered massive views. So to tap the huge potential of the summer season, Youku has set up the “HD Clas
sic” section featuring 1,000 restored classic film and TV productions in 1080P resolution.
Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is
a popular tourist destination, is trying to regain its past glory as a center for Peking Opera.上海千花坊女神会所
Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha
n 200 years. In 2010 UNESCO declared Peking Opera an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op
era summer camp from July 19 to 24, hoping to attract young students from around the country.
The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所
oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.
The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb
上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.
Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所
g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.
Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d
uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.
After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for
ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f
rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.
Tech firm Lenovo Group Ltd unveiled its upgraded high-performance co

lopment of supercomputers in an attempt to post global leading breakthroughs.
上海千花坊The latest system is named Shenteng X9000. It is an integrat
ed solution network embedded with several key technologies such as high-performance comp
uting, artificial intelligence and big data, which industry insiders said can tackle a variety of scenarios.上海千花坊品茶微信
“The country’s high-performance computing has embraced
上海千花坊new breakthroughs,” said Tong Fuyao, senior vice-president of Lenovo.
China has emphasized the importance of high-performance comp
uting, highlighted by the use and application of supercomputers, in making innovations.上海千花坊品茶微信
Top500, one of the most authoritative rankings on supercomputers globally, said the co
上海千花坊untry continued to dominate the world’s fastest supercomputers in terms of the number of systems.
With 219 systems, the nation tops the supercomputer list and accounted for 4
3.8 percent of the world’s total, followed by the United States with 116 and Japan with 29.上海千花坊品茶微信
In the list, Lenovo claimed the greatest number of systems globally with 173, while the cou
上海千花坊ntry’s server maker Inspur Group hit 71, and supercomputer manufacturer Sugon stood at 63.
“Compared with our competitors, Lenovo is a unique company that can
offer solutions spanning cloud to the edge, meaning the firm can meet all kinds of de上海千花坊品茶微信
mands from clients,” said Scott Tease, executive director of HPC and AI at Lenovo.
上海千花坊品茶微信Even though the US Commerce Department added five Chinese supercomputer
companies to its Entity List barred from buying US technology, Scott said Lenovo has been able to deal wi
th the development because “Lenovo is a China-based company but (has) globalized” its operations.上海千花坊品茶微信
“We consider ourselves a global asset for high-performance computing. We are able to drive the value of high-perfo
上海千花坊rmance computing throughout different countries, not just for one or two countries only,” he said.
Qian Depei, dean of the School of Data and Computer Science of Su上海千花坊品茶微信
n Yat-sen University, pointed out that though China has gained momentum in the number of supe
rcomputers globally, there are still many challenges ahead, especially in the E-level supercomputer.

“I didn’t know how many sixth graders would come to the tent classroom as some of them were injured in the eart

The supporting housing of the new Fengtai station will also reach 357,000 square meters, Li said.
“A set of high-standard surrounding facilities will be built for the new railway station to incre 阿拉爱上海
ase the overall passenger capacity,” he said, adding that the supporting services for the rou
阿拉爱上海女神会所nd-trip railway line, a carriage maintenance station as well as a bullet train repair site will start construction soon.
Trains on the Beijing-Guangzhou line and Beijing-Shanghai rail line, two major routes th
rough the capital’s Fengtai district, had been diverted to create space for construction, said Li. 阿拉爱上海
The new station will also make it more convenient for passengers in southern Beijin

The Fengtai station is being relocated 1.4 kilometers northeast of its original loca
tion to an area between the west Third Ring and Fourth Ring roads in Beijing. 阿拉爱上海
With four floors above ground and three underground, the Fengtai station will be a two-la

Built in 1895, the old Fengtai station was the oldest in the capital. In Ju

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.
is one of them. “If we want to build cultural confidence, and want to
make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were th上海千花坊女神会所
ose of reformists. She might reflect her own experience of pervasive prejudice and hope to change the status quo. But on th
上海千花坊e whole, most students showed great interest in and confidence over the future of traditional Chinese culture.
The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The co上海千花坊女神会所
ntest this year shows a big difference from previous ones. The contestants now are more interested in wor
ld affairs and the role China should play in the international community. They have broader perspectives and are more pa
上海千花坊女神会所ssionate in dealing with common challenges the whole universe is facing, and their views are more diversified,” Guo said.
Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of studen上海千花坊
ts’ English capability, but also an expression of students’ patriotism and global horizon. Keeping track of both wo
上海千花坊女神会所rld and Chinese affairs and maintaining an open mind without losing interest in traditional Chinese culture in th
e era of globalization are priorities in higher education, especially for liberal arts students.
The contestants’ passion for traditional Chinese culture is the epitome of all college students’ reflection on Chinese culture上海千花坊女神会所
in China. They grew up in a prosperous and dynamic society with unlimited potential built by the older ge
上海千花坊nerations. Soon or later, they will take over their causes and reshape this great country based on their perspectives and v
alues, and their speeches can be regarded as their declaration of building a better China in the future.

China’s development of the FC-31, the country’s second steal
th fighter jet, is proceeding smoothly and on schedule, according to its chief designer.上海千花坊
Sun Cong, president of the Chinese Aeronautical Establishmen
上海千花坊女神会所t under Aviation Industry Corporation of China, said at a news conference on Thursday in Sh
enyang, Liaoning province, that people should be patient and wait for good news from the project.
“You will see its latest developments in due course, in the near future,” said Sun, who上海千花坊
is also the chief researcher at AVIC’s Shenyang Aircraft Design and Research Institute.
上海千花坊女神会所Sun’s comments indicated that China has never wavered in its attempts to develop and build a second series of stealth com
bat aircraft after the J-20 entered service with the People’s Liberation Army Air Force in 2017.
His remarks are likely to reassure anyone concerned about the fate of上海千花坊
FC-31 because of its virtual disappearance from public view over the past two years.
The twin-engine, radar-evading fighter jet was unveiled in October 2012 when a prototy上海千花坊女神会所
pe made its maiden flight, becoming China’s second 5th-generation fighter jet, following the J-20.
上海千花坊The FC-31 has a high survivability rate, a low radar signature, advanced electronic countermeasures, strong information gat
hering and handling capacity, outstanding situational awareness and beyond-visual-range combat capability.
In addition to air combat, it can also carry out strikes against land and sea targets, according to its designers.上海千花坊女神会所
The aircraft has a large weapons bay and can carry multiple external missiles.
According to AVIC specifications, the FC-31 has a maximum takeoff we
ight of 25 metric tons, a combat range of 1,200 kilometers and a top speed of Mach 1.8, or 2,上海千花坊女神会所
205 kilometers per hour. It can carry 8 tons of weapons and has a designed life span of up to 30 years.
