The conclusion was made after comparing the situation in May 爱上海

China’s forex market sentiment and participants’ behavior were more rational and stable, according to Wang.

“After the economic and trade frictions escalated in May this year, the depreciation rate and depreciation exp 爱上海

According to Asahi Shi上海夜网 annual survey ahead of

 Constitution Day on May 3, doubts over constitutional revision have increased.

On the one hand, a large majority of the respondents said they don‘t see any upsu上海夜网

rge in the call for constitutional amendment despite Abe’s desperate efforts.

上海夜网女神会所On the other hand, when asked if Article 9 should be amended, 64 percent of the respondents

said “no”, up from 63 percent last year, while only 28 percent said “yes”, down from 32 percent last year.

And Yomiuri Shimbun’s nationwide opinion poll in July showed people are more concerne上海夜网

d about “social security matters” such as pensions than constitutional amendment. In fact, 37 perce

上海夜网女神会所nt of the respondents, the biggest group, said they vote for the party which promises to provide the best possible socia

l security for citizens, with only 7 percent saying constitutional amendment is the most important issue for them.

Moreover, apart from heeding the call of a majority of Japanese citizens, Abe and the LDP sh上海夜网

ould also take into consideration the opinions of Japan’s neighbors such as China, the Republic of Kor

上海夜网ean and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the invading Japanese troops committed many atroc

ities before and during World War II, before venturing to amend the Constitution.

If the LDP tries to amend the pacifist Constitution without resolving the historic上海夜网

上海夜网女神会所al issues with the neighboring countries and without understanding the true sentiments of Japanese citizens, it will

face opposition from the Japanese people as well as the international community.

osing new leaders for European Union institutions became a tough exercise for EU officials.上海夜网

On July 2, Ursula von der Leyen, German defense minister, was nominated as the new president of the European Com

mission, and Christine Lagarde, International Monetary Fund managing director, was nominated to head the Eu

上海夜网女神会所ropean Central Bank. While outgoing Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel was nominated to lead the European Cou

ncil, former EP president Josep Borrell’s name was proposed as the new EU foreign policy chief.

That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in

e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa

rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog

ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.

The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦

es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad

opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig

ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh

ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信

e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU

上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro

pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.

Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦

and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur

opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信

support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

A national bankruptcy mechanism is under discussion by policymakers, covering local gover

“The key task is to prevent debt default risk,” said Wan Cunzhi, director-general of the PBOC’s Credit Information System Bu

Bankruptcy of local governments was rarely mentioned in China before, and the official didn’t re

娱乐地图lease more details on the mechanism. It reflected that policymakers have noticed the potential challe

The State Council released a guideline on Tuesday for building a credit-based market regulation system. The bankruptcy mechanism is one part of the who

Multiple local governments including those of Handan in Hebei province, Jinan in Shand

上海会所品茶微信ong province, and Tianjin have banned the so-called Beijing Bikini-which refers to men who roll up their sh

irts or T-shirts to expose their bellies in public places in summer. Aimed at promoting civilized behavior, the ban is a tim

ely move as the “Beijing Bikini” is considered offensive, especially by women.上海会所

Yet the good intentions of the local governments cons

上海会所titute only the first step toward promoting civilized behavior, par

ticularly in public places. So the authorities should consider all possible options

and devise an appropriate plan to ensure the ban on Beijing Bikini is actually implemented.上海会所品茶微信

In this regard, Handan’s move offers some food for thought, as civic inspectors in Hanshan district gift a T-shirt to men in B上海会所

eijing Bikini to cover themselves up. This method of correcting uncivilized behavior in a c

ivilized way reflects proper social management and sends a goodwill signal to the people in general.

上海会所品茶微信However, it is necessary to make certain facts clear, and adopt the most appropriate m

ethods to deal with the issue. For instance, men in Beijing Bikini cannot be held guilty of committing an of

fense. At most, their behavior may be deemed uncivilized. In sociological terms, the

act of a man wearing nothing above the waist could be defined as minor transgression.

desert rice’ shows adv上海后花园t of Chinese agricultur

Rice from China has been successfully planted in the deserts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a

nd its yield has hit a record high, leading to an agricultural breakthrough in the city.上海后花园品茶微信

The seawater rice yield reached 629 kilograms per mu (0.06 hectare), a result observed by experts from China and Dubai on J

u上海后花园ne 6. This yield is on par with the advanced level of international rice planting in desert areas and saline-alkali soil.

The sea rice project, launched by the Wuhan Haidao International Agricultural Development Co of Hubei province last O

ctober, broke the record for Dubai desert rice planting in terms of planting area and rice yield. This achi上海后花园

evement was praised by the ruler of Dubai and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai.

上海后花园Invited by Dubai, experts from the company provided all te

chnological services for seawater rice planting in Dubai’s deserts and deve

loped the proprietary “Haidao 86” rice species. They began their work in November.上海后花园品茶微信

Dubai has quite special agricultural, ecological and climate conditi

上海后花园ons. In other words, disadvantages — including low temperatures at night for the seeding stage

, high temperatures and dry winds in the earing period and low rainfall. The favorable period for rice growth is also quite

short. Any small mistake in cultivation may lead to failure, the Wuhan company said.上海后花园品茶微信

Barren soil, insects, bird strikes and shortage of water

have been major hindrances for rice planting in Dubai deserts, the上海后花园

company said, adding pesticides and inorganic nitrogenous fertilizers were not allowed in the project area.

上海后花园品茶微信In recent years, many domestic and international companies tried to plant rice in Dubai wi

thout satisfying results due to existing obstacles, said company investor Xie Xiaoqing.

But the experts finally succeeded by applying creative s上海后花园

eeding methods, scientific water management and strict growth process control.

The success of the project has presented the technological progress of Chinese agric上海后花园品茶微信

ulture to the world and benefited people across the globe, and will help in prom

oting both international cooperation and the sharing of agricultural technology, she added.

A nationwide immigration enforcement operation targeting people who are in the United S

上海419论坛品茶微信tates illegally is expected to begin this weekend after it was postponed last month by US President Do

nald Trump, according to two administration officials and immigrant activists.

The operation, which has sparked outrage and concern among immigrant-rights advocates, would上海419论坛

target people with final deportation orders, including families whose immigration cases were fast-t

racked by judges in 10 major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Miami.上海419论坛品茶微信

The operation is similar to ones conducted regularly since 2003 that often produce hundreds of arrests. It is slightly unusual

上海419论坛品茶微信to target families, as opposed to immigrants with criminal histories, but it’s not unprecedented. The

Obama and Trump administrations have targeted families in previous operations.

Zhu Yue, chairman of China Health and Elderly Care Group who a

ttended the meeting, told China Daily that the economies of the China an

d Japan are highly complementary so cooperation will only be mutually beneficial.

Taking the elderly care sector as an example, Zhu said that China has a huge m

arket and is starting to face an aging society while Japan is very experienced and h

ad high technologies, so “cooperation will definitely benefit the people of the two countries”.
