Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), again guided the test-firing of “a newly-developed large-caliber multiple la
新亚博体育注册千花坊unch guided rocket system” on Friday, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Saturday.
The report said Kim guided the test-firing at the observation post “early in the Friday morning,” without mentioning the site where the test-firing took place.
The test-firing “satisfactorily confirmed the altitude control level flight performance, trac新亚博体育注册千花坊
k changing capability, accuracy of hitting a target and warhead explosion power of the guided ordnance rocket,” said KCNA.
新亚博体育注册千花坊According to the report, Kim expressed “great satisfaction” with the result of the test-firin
g, saying that “another Juche-oriented weapon planned and so desired by the Party has been made.”
Kim also guided the test-firing of the weapon system on Wednesday, when he emphasiz
新亚博体育注册千花坊ed that the system has “a great strategic significance” for boosting the combat capability of the country’s army.
The European Union’s disagreement with the United States over Iran widened when the EU vowed on Thursday to co

The US Treasury Department announced on Wednesday its sanctions on Zarif. “Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran’s S
upreme Leader, and is the regime’s primary spokesperson around the world,” US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a st
新亚博体育注册千花坊atement. The US put sanctions on Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on June 24.
“We regret this decision,” said Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela, a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
“From our side, we will continue to work with Mr Zarif as Iran’s most senior diplom
at and in view of the importance of maintaining diplomatic channels,” he said, as quoted by the Agence France-Presse.新亚博体育注册千花坊

Ecolab Inc, a United States-based global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services新亚博体育注册千花坊
, will invest more on innovation in China and get focused on three of its core businesses, its top management said.
新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所”A big area of focus for us more recently has been digital innovation,” said Jill Wyant, executive vice-president of regions, Ecolab. She is also the president of
the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud com
puting platforms and solutions. We’re in the process of extending that relationship in china. We’ve hired a chief d新亚博体育注册千花坊
igital officer and hired someone to help us look after digital infrastructure and architecture.”
Ecolab made a multimillion-dollar investment in innovation in China. The co
新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所mpany built a research and development center in Shanghai around a decade ago.
“We want more than double our business in China in the medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for so
me reasons. One of which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”
Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.
“We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic a
nd societal trends, such as the emerging of the middle class, water scarcity issues and the aging population, an
d our business is in line with the government’s commitment toward a more healthy and beautiful China. The ma
rket is huge and we are a good fit and well-placed to grasp the opportunities here,” said Wyant.
According to her, the company has to focus to succeed in China.
“It’s a massive country. It’s rife with opportunities, and it’s got a very aggressive and vibrant customer set, but als
o a competitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring a
dvantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.

Beijing will push forward its waste sorting legislation soon, and the newly revised regul新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
ation will clarify an individual’s responsibility to sort domestic waste, a senior official said.
A municipal regulation in Shanghai covering domestic waste management had taken effect on Monday and required every household and institution to sort新亚博体育注册千花坊
their trash into four categories: recyclable waste, hazardous waste, household food waste and residual waste.
Sun Xinjun, director of Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Management, said Beijing will follow suit soon without giving a possible date.
“If the garbage is not sorted, the resident may face a fine of up to 200 yuan ($30),” he said新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
, adding that the penalty will be no less than Shanghai’s garbage classification punishment.
Different from the four categories of separating trash in Shanghai, Beijing will use four other garbage classification sta
新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信dards: recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste, according to Sun.
Some departments and public institutions in the capital hav
e already implemented waste management. Beijing produces nearly 26,000 metric tons of do新亚博体育注册千花坊
mestic waste every day, and 29 garbage disposal terminal facilities are already operating at their full capacity.
In 2018, Beijing collected 9.3 million tons of household waste.新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信

Statistics from a property research institution showed that Hangzhou, with a total lan新亚博体育注册千花坊
d revenue of 142.3 billion yuan ($20.71 billion), has become the “king of land revenue” during the first six months of this year.
According to data from the China Index Academy, a Beijing-based property research institution, the tot
al land transaction fees in 300 major Chinese cities was 2.25 trillion yuan in the first half, a 16 percent year-on-year increase.
新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所The combined income from leasing land in Hangzhou surpassed 140 billion yuan, ranking the top na
tionwide. It was followed by Wuhan, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing, whose land income all exceeded 60 billion yuan.
During the first months of this year, the combined value of land transaction in the top 10 cities was 764.5 billion yuan, up 16 percent year-on-year.新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所
Foshan in Guangzhou province, Changzhou in Jiangsu province and Shaoxing in Zhejiang province all entered the top 20 cities ranking.
In terms of planning construction areas, Wuhan, with 24.75 million square meters, took the top spo

When it comes to land purchases, Country Garden, a Hong Kong-listed proper

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open新亚博体育注册千花坊
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all新亚博体育注册千花坊品茶微信
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.

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.

The tough punishments will exert positive impacts on the whole-process supervision of vaccines, said Jiao Hong, head of the National Medical Products Administration.
It will further enhance the quality of the country’s vaccines and boost the public’s confide新亚博体育注册千花坊

An autopsy will be carried out to help determine the reason behind the death of a 3-year-old girl from Lianyungang, Jiang
新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所su province, who died after receiving a rabies vaccine, the local government was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
The girl, surnamed Zhang, was scratched by the pet dog of her classmate on April 26. After about 23 hours, she received a freeze-dried rabies vaccine at a local hosp
ital. But early April 28, the girl suffered a febrile convulsion and was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. She died later that day.
The case has attracted attention from netizens who wondered whether the death could be caused by disqualified vaccines.新亚博体育注册千花坊女神会所
According to The Paper, a preliminary investigation by local health authorities showed
no recipients had adverse reactions after getting vaccines from the same batch between March 11 and April 30.
The investigation also showed the hospital where she was vaccinated and the doctor involv

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.
“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene

Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e
