The photo capturing the moment from Li’s childhood featured in Color of China is on show at Barbey上海后花园
‘s solo exhibition of the same name, which runs at the National Art Museum of China through Sunday.
The exhibition and the publication of the book coincide with the 70th anniversary of

Barbey is also among several members of the French Academy of Fine Arts, one of the five academ
ies of the Institut de France, whose artworks have been exhibited at the Beijing museum this year.上海后花园女神会所
These shows mark this year’s 55th anniversary of the formal establishment of Sino-French diplomatic relations.
In one section of the exhibition, photos depicting China’s modern, rapidly-urbanizing cityscap
上海后花园es are projected onto large screen. Another section displays the color images that Barbey captured during his
first two visits to the country in 1973 and 1980, including the photo of Li’s accordion lessons, which evoke a strong feel上海后花园
ing of nostalgia among visitors. They are part of a donation of 70 photos by Barbey to the museum.
上海后花园女神会所Barbey first came to China as a member of a French delegation led by Georges Pompidou w
ho served as France’s president from 1969 until his death in 1974. Accompanying the French dele

Barbey returned to China in 1980, this time with his wife Caroline. They traveled extensively around the country, photographing and filming for more than five w
上海后花园eeks in Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan province and Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
Before he came to China, Barbey’s impression of the country was larg

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on Monday sternly denounced t
上海419he violence carried out in the city on Sunday, saying violence would never be a solution but to breed more violence.
Such violent acts are vicious, have caused city-wide indignation and should be punished, Lam stressed. 上海419品茶微信
Lam met with the media alongside principal government officials on Monday aftern
上海419oonfollowing targeted violenceat the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Sai Wan,
Hong Kong Island, and at passengers in a metro station in Yuen Long, New Territories.
The vandalization to the Liaison Office, including besieging the office an 上海419品茶微信
d defacing the Nation Emblem mounted at the office entrance, is a blatant defiance to
上海419the nation’s sovereignty and an open challenge to the “one country, two systems” principle, Lam said.
Such acts have left a great harm to the special administrative region 上海419品茶微信
which is governed by the principle of “one country, two systems”, Lam added.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive also condemned the “astonishing a
上海419nd outrageous” attacks in Yuen Long. On late Sunday night, attackers in white shi
rts, some wearing masks, assaulted passengers at the Yuen Long metro station with bamboo sticks. 上海419
The SAR government bears zero tolerance to any kind of violence carried out at any time, anywhere and towards an
上海419品茶微信people. “We thus call on all citizens to safeguard the city’s law and order and never resort to violence”, Lam concluded.

The form has multiple sections, including a section on “aggravating factor
s” that asks jurors, among other things, if Christensen killed Zhang “in an espe上海会所品茶微信
cially heinous, cruel, or depraved manner” and whether he’s shown no remorse, and a section on “mitigation fa
上海会所ctors” asking if aspects of Christensen’s “background, record or character … mitigate against imposition of a death sentence”.
The jurors had to independently assess if aggravating factors presente
d by US prosecutors regarding how Christensen killed Zhang and the impact her death ha上海会所品茶微信
s had on others “sufficiently outweigh the mitigating factors”, according to the penalty-phase form.
上海会所On Wednesday, the jury asked the judge whether the prosecution’s aggravating factor of
future dangerousness referred to while Christensen was in prison or if he were free or had never been caught. Th
e judge circled “in prison” after a brief discussion with defense lawyers and prosecutors. 上海会所
Jurors also asked if the jury was supposed to quantify the number of jurors who fo
上海会所品茶微信und each mitigating factor proved by a preponderance of the evidence. Both sides agreed the answer is yes.
On Thursday, the jury asked how the number of jurors who found a mitigating factor to exist could be used after the trial.
“We are inclined not to share our results,” a juror wrote.上海会所品茶微信
“We need help,” the jury then said in a message to the court on Thursday, asking the judge about what would happen if they c
上海会所ouldn’t reach a unanimous decision — just about one hour before the judge announced the verdict.
“I think today must be the most disappointing day for Zhang’s family ot

Zhidong, a Chicago-based lawyer who represents Zhang’s family, told China Daily after the sentencing.
“But we have to know that it’s very difficult to seek the death penalty in federal court,” Wang said, adding that jur
ies have sentenced defendants to death in only 36 percent of the cases that went to trial.上海会所品茶微信
Since the reinstatement of the federal death penalty in 1988, 78 people have been sentenced to death — but only three ha
ve actually been put to death, according to Death Penalty Information Center data to 2018.上海会所

上海品茶微信女神会所Located in the core area of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, SSGKC is 25 kilometers from Gua
ngzhou Baiyun International Airport and almost 35 km from downtown Guangzhou, Guangdong’s capital.
Besides the completion of a subway network linking SSGKC to th上海品茶微信

上海千花坊品茶微信ions to be a world-class knowledge city, an outstanding source of innovation in the region and a global talent magnet.
According to a framework agreement signed by the Chinese and Singaporean governm
ents on Monday, the iconic Sino-Singaporean collaboration project based in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Gu上海千花坊
angdong province, was officially elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.
上海千花坊品茶微信Involving a total investment of 1.4 billion yuan ($203.34 million) and scheduled to be co
mpleted in 2020, the China-Singapore International Smart Industry Park will focus
on the development of technology related to the internet of things, big data and cloud ecology.上海千花坊
It is designed to empower companies developing applications in the smart home, transport, office, healthcare and city ind
上海千花坊ustries, according to the administration of Huangpu district, Guangzhou, where the project is located.
Infrastructure projects including eight railways, five expressways and seven urban express
ways are under construction and a new metro line is scheduled for operation in late September.上海千花坊
An intercity light rail is also slated to be put into service next year. By then, travel time from th
e CSGKC to other cities in the Bay Area is expected to be reduced to within an hour.
上海千花坊品茶微信In addition, a high-speed rail station and convenient traffic routes
to the airport, railway stations and the port of Guangzhou are planned.
The park will accommodate innovation incubators, offices, commerc上海千花坊
ial facilities and residential apartments, with green-building technologies to be used widely.
上海千花坊品茶微信The park will also include a Siemens green city digitalization center and a Sino-Singapore research institute.

上海后花园Workers on Thursday broke ground on a cableway spanning Heilongjiang Ri
ver, which forms the China-Russia border, in hopes of advancing tourism in the region.
It is the first cross-border cableway between the two countri上海后花园品茶微信
es. On completion, the cableway will link up Heihe, a city in Northeast China’s Heilon
gjiang province, and the Russian city of Blagoveshchensk across the Heilongjiang River, also known as Amur River.
上海后花园品茶微信As China’s opening-up gains further steam, exchanges between the two
cities have been increasing. Border crossing, however, has remained stubbornly slow.
The cableway, with a budget of 570 million yuan ($83 million), w上海后花园
ill be 972 meters in length and will follow two-way traffic, with cable coaches capable of ca
rrying 80 people each. The cableway is designed to have a transporting capacity of 6 million people annually.
上海后花园品茶微信”A cableway will be a safe and convenient shortcut for tourists to cro

mmittee of the Communist Party of China. “Riders will also get a glimpse of the unique views of both cities.”
It is expected that the cableway will be finished and become operational in the first quarter of上海后花园品茶微信
2021. Completion of the project will boost tourism in the region and there will be 10 percent increase in the nu

Also, the time for a single-way border crossing will be shortened to less than 10 minutes.

of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariffs on $
4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海419论坛
sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU goo
上海419论坛品茶微信ds－in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US ad
ministration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.
Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute ove上海419论坛
r the subsidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tari
ffs to exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global
上海419论坛品茶微信market and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.
The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “thre
e zeros”－zero tariff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy－for non-auto industrial products.上海419论坛
Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agricu
上海419论坛品茶微信ltural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington comp
elled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.
As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campai
gn, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the votes from the agricultural belts helpe上海419论坛品茶微信
d him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has provided numerous subsidies for farmers to
help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and other eco上海419论坛
nomies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agr
上海419论坛品茶微信icultural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.
However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane manuf
acturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose m
ore tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU goo
ds, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.
during puberty should be discussed with minors by parents and teachers. Minors should also learn when the opposite gend

“They can also be taught ways to prevent such impulses when they feel they are on the verge of
上海千花坊losing control of their behavior. For example, they can play sports, rather than harm others,” Lin said.
Sun appealed to the public to create a more inclusive and kinder environment for both minors and adult victims of sexual as
saults, as pressure arising from gossip can sometimes “deal a heavier blow” than an incident of sexual assault itself.上海千花坊品茶微信
“One fact that best illustrates this is that everybody can be straightforward
about telling others that their wallet has been stolen. However, few people, including m
en and boys, dare to speak publicly if they have experienced a sexual assault,” she said.上海千花坊
n his famous book The Rise and Decline of Nations, Mancur Olson, the lat
e economics professor at the University of Maryland, argued that if societies don’t conti
上海千花坊品茶微信nuously evolve their economic structures, then they will become stagnant and innovation will stop.
Industry groups will try to use protectionist policy to protect
their position, thus hurting economic growth and leading to national decline, he said.
Opening up to foreign competition is an essential step toward preventing this ossification. Many historical ex上海千花坊品茶微信
amples show that a nation that tries to protect its indus
try from competition just ends up with inefficient industries and a left-behind economy.
上海千花坊For 40 years, China’s reform and opening-up process has improved econ
omic efficiency and upgrading by iteratively reforming economic and legal structures.
China has been able to maintain high economic growth for a very long period through this process of continuous institu上海千花坊品茶微信
tional innovation. This gradual process of continuous reform while institutions are built has proven much more
successful than the “shock therapy” implemented by Russia, Poland and others in the 1990s.
In the last few months, many additional reforms aimed at further opening up the Chinese econo
my to foreign firms and supporting the private sector have been announced. These reforms are coin]
cidentally consistent with some of the requests by the United States in the trade negotiations.

上海乌托邦The first of them will be tasked with assessing overall design and reliability in space, they said.
China launched its first recoverable satellite in 1975, becoming the third nation to do so after the United States and the for
mer Soviet Union. China has sent 25 such satellites comprising seven types into space since then. These satellites 上海乌托邦品茶微信
enabled Chinese scientists to carry out hundreds of space-based tests and experiments.
The most recent mission by a Chinese recoverable satellite took place in April 2016 when the
上海乌托邦Shijian 10 carried out scientific experiments during a 12-day space journey before returning to Earth.
In another development, i-Space, a private rocket maker in Beijing, announced on F 上海乌托邦
riday that it had recently conducted a successful ignition test of its JD-1, a reusable liquid-propelled rocket engine.
The company called the 200-second test a milestone in the development of JD-1, which is set to lift i-Space’s SQX-2 carrier rocket. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
SQX-2 is at the research and design stage and is scheduled to make its maiden flight in 2021, i-Space said.
