新亚博体育注册千花坊s one of the country’s most popular outdoor musical events, the Strawberry Music Festival, whi

ch was launched in Beijing by the company in 2009 and has since expanded into dozens of Chinese cities.

“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” says the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band in 1990 while he was studying rada新亚博体育注册千花坊

r engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But the most important thing was that when I learned to play guitar I wanted to explore more be

autiful sounds of the instruments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a

新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信large fan base in China then with poetic lyrics about youth, romance and friendship, accompanied by guitar.

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerg

ing live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.

?live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to l新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信

aunch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the l

ive bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and gained a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 fol

lowers on their Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the n

atural charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

According to the China CDC, the country saw no sudden spikes in measles last year, as f

ewer than 4,000 cases were recorded and only one patient died from it, compared with nearly 9 million measles cases annually at its peak in the 1950s.

Wang Huaqing, chief expert in the immunization program at the China CDC, suggested th新亚博体育注册品茶微信

at public health workers in China can draw lessons from the recent measles outbreaks around the globe and continue to boost national immunization coverage.

“In China, there is room to improve in terms of rounding up the domestic immunization program and further improving the vaccination rate,” Wang said.

新亚博体育注册品茶微信Public health experts in China have underscored their confidence in the safety and efficacy of domestic vaccines and called for concerted efforts to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases.

Gao Fu, head of the China CDC, reaffirmed that vaccines produced in China are among “the best in the world” and urged the public to maintain confidence in domestically produced vaccines.

hina plans to introduce a compensation system for people who report adverse events linked to preventive vaccinations, according to a draft law under review at the top legislature.新亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所

Compensation must be provided in cases of an adverse event leading to death, serious disability or o

rgan injury during or after vaccination, or when the possibility of an adverse event cannot be excluded, the draft says.

The draft vaccine administration law was submitted Saturday to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress for the second reading.

The draft increases penalties on illegal activities, such as manufacturing and selling fake or substan新亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所

dard vaccines, and stipulates a punitive compensation to those who sell or use substandard vaccines with knowledge, causin

g death or serious health consequences.
“The newly proposed law on vaccine management, currently under review by China’s

新亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所top legislative body, speaks volume about the country’s determination to establish the most stringent standards and impleme

t the strongest supervision, toughest penalties and accountability in the vaccine sector,” he said.

Gao added that recent scandals involving ineffective or fake va新亚博体育注册品茶微信女神会所

ccines in China do not reflect the mainstream quality of domestic vaccines.

“It is imperative for the whole society to restore public confidence in vaccines and the national immunization program,” he said.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide follow

lowing crashes March 10 in Ethiopia and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

新亚博体育注册龙凤Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an autom

ated anti-stall device, apparently forced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fat

al plunge when it erroneously determined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.新亚博体育注册龙凤

There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, including about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend abo

新亚博体育注册龙凤ut $1 billion to update and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from rep

eatedly pointing the nose of the plane down and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.新亚博体育注册龙凤品茶微信

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg refused to新亚博体育注册龙凤

Debate moderators are expected to raise such topics a

topics as economy, healthcare, education, immigration, climate change, and forei

gn policy, similar to those for the first group of partic新亚博体育注册楼凤ipants on Wednesday night.

新亚博体育注册楼凤According to debate rules, each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 se

conds for rebuttals. There are no opening statements, but each candidate will have one minute for a closing statement.

Wednesday’s debate was attended by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts新亚博体育注册楼凤

, another top-tier contender, along with former Congressman Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Senator

新亚博体育注册楼凤Cory Booker of New Jersey, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and five others.

Together, 20 candidates qualified for the first primary debate for either scoring at least 1 perce

nt support in three qualifying polls or receiving donations from at least 65,000 unique donors.

The two-night debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Cen新亚博体育注册楼凤

er for the Performing Arts, was the first of a dozen that the Democratic National Committee had planned for the party’s primary.

The second debate is scheduled for July 30-31 in Detroit, Michigan.

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t

新亚博体育注册楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from

新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj

ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信

antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we

have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ

ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det

新亚博体育注册楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra

nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.
