tee steady business growth. In the future, we will increase investment in AI applications in the finance and manu

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan

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

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.

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.

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

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.

This helped strengthen Apple’s technical as well as no

n-technical initiatives in China, the latest of which is going to open later this summer – the company’s first design and development accelerator in China.

上海品茶微信The center, to be based in Shanghai, will provide technical support to developers who work on

Apple software. Through the facility, Apple will present lectures, seminars, experiments, speeches and tra

ining. It will also organize regular networking events to help the developer community in China and its上海品茶微信

neighborhood to improve the design, quality and performance of their products.

上海品茶微信女神会所The upcoming Shanghai facility will be in line with Apple’s recent thrust in China. S

ince 2017, it has set up four research and development centers in China – one eac

h in Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Suzhou – entailing a combined investment of 3.5 billion yuan ($509 m上海品茶微信

illion) and employment for over 1,000 people dedicated to innovation in hardware, software and services.

“We are continuing to grow the scale of these centers in China and welcome more talented professionals to join us,” Ge said.上海品茶微信女神会所

Since taking the helm of Apple Inc’s China business two years ago, Ge

has been committed to building a vibrant local ecosystem. Her impressive tec

hnical record and understanding of local culture – Ge is fluent in Chinese – come in handy.

Born in Shenyang, Liaoning, a province in Northeast China, she armed herself with higher education and上海品茶微信

corporate job experience in the United States. She got a MBA from the University of California, Be

上海品茶微信女神会所rkeley and acquired master’s in electrical engineering from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.

Ge returned to China in 2017, and was impressed immediately by the nation’s r

apid adoption of digitalization and the innovative prowess of local software developers.

“Chinese software developers have grown to be a very admirable community of innovators and they上海品茶微信

are leading the world in terms of app downloads and revenue,” she said in an interview with China Daily.

Now, over 2.2 million Chinese developers are active on Apple’s App Store which was上海品茶微信女神会所

launched in 2010. Their combined global sales on the platform have exceeded 200 billion yuan.

The number continues to grow as the California-based company s

teps up investments in China, the world’s largest consumer electronics market.

It is no surprise that, as a Beijing native who grew up in

n a crowded courtyard house in a traditional alleyway like Lao She, Fang also felt a deep connection to the writer’s works.

上海龙凤1314女神会所As Fang says, he enjoys reading Lao She’s works because the characters appear as familiar as his neighbors.

After performing This Life of Mine in 2011, Fang began to plan other adaptations of Lao She’s works.

With the support of Lao She’s children, including Shu Yi and Lao She’s daughter Shu Ji, Fa上海龙凤1314

ng adapted two more of the writer’s well-known novels, Divorce and Cat Country, for the stage between 2012 and 2014.

In 2016, he adapted Lao She’s novel, Mr Ma and Son, into an all-male cast stage production of the same title, which largely draws on Lao She’s experience as a Ma上海龙凤1314

ndarin teacher at the University of London from 1924 to 1929. Last year, he directed another all-male cast play titled Lao She’s Six Stories, based on six short sto

ries penned by the writer between 1934 and 1935, which deal with the struggles and lives of ordinary people, dep上海龙凤1314女神会所

icting the plight of a young couple living a hand-to-mouth existence and the relationships between local neighbors.

Fang is working on his latest play, The Story of Niu Tianci, which was written by Lao She in 1934.

“Compared with Lao She’s other works, The Story of Niu Tianci is less well-known. But Shu Ji likes it very much and it’s a pit

y to ignore such a great novel,” he says. “The story is about a young man’s struggle against his social environment, a

上海龙凤1314nd I am sure that audiences will find the story interesting and connect with it. I am very excited about it.”

A park focusing on the innovation and development of intangible cultural heritage opened in Beijing on June 28, the first of its kind in China.

Developed by the Hong Kong-listed Beijing Capital Land, Yongyuan is the first park o

The company signed strategic cooperation agreements with a host of tradition上海龙凤1314女神会所

al art workshops, guilds and institutes of higher learning at the opening ceremony.

Yongyuan park also aims to integrate investment, technological resear

Japan to resume comme上海419论坛nting amid criticism

Japan will resume commercial whaling Monday amid criticism from anti-whaling states a

上海419论坛nd environmental groups after the country withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) on Sunday.

Japan’s withdrawal from the IWC is the first time in its postwar history that it has withdrawn from a major international organization. Japan has lobbied for the resumption of commercial whaling for 30 years.上海419论坛

Last September, the IWC’s annual meeting rejected Japan’s latest proposal to resume commercial whaling. The Japanese government had threatened to withdraw from the international organization.

Japan announced its intention to withdraw last December, saying it was no longer possible to resume commercial whaling under IWC rules.

Several whaling ships are ready to leave the western port city of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, on Monday to start whali上海419论坛

ng in the Pacific. And in the northern city of Kushiro, Hokkaido Prefecture, five vessels plan to leave for whaling in nearby waters.

Japan says it will conduct commercial whaling only in its territorial waters and exclusive ec

上海419论坛女神会所onomic zones, hunting minke and other species that have large enough numbers, within quotas set by the IWC-adopted method.

Environmental activists are criticizing the resumption in light of resource conservation and animal protection.

Festive vibes spread across Hong Kong on Sunday with citywide celebrations to mark the 22nd anniversary of the city’s return to the motherland.

Speaking at the launch of a three-day gala in Victoria Park that features high-tech and innovations-the largest celebration eve

nt happening in the city-Chief Secretary for Administration Matthew Cheung Kin-chung said the Hong Kong Sp上海419论坛

ecial Administrative Region government wants to promote innovation and technology.

It has invested more than HK$100 billion ($12.8 billion) in innovation and technology, Cheung said.

上海419论坛女神会所Apart from offering hands-on experiences with gadgets, the gala features mu

sic concerts, trendy culture, a food festival and a special area for young people to showcase their creative ideas.

The fiesta, which started on Saturday, had attracted more than 60,000 visitors up to Sunday afternoon. It was one of som

e 360 celebrations held by the Hong Kong Celebrations Association, which is made up of 40 social groups from various sectors.上海419论坛女神会所

The association estimated that more than 300,000 Hong Kong people would take part in them.

Brave Chan Yung, the association’s acting executive chairman, said t

he festival aims to build a technology-friendly environment in Hong Kong, boost the cit上海419论坛女神会所

y’s science and technology development and provide a broad platform for Hong Kong youngsters.

People of all ages were seen snaking through the venue, event by event and booth by booth, to

try out advanced high-tech products featuring virtual reality, 5G telecommunications and artificial intelligence.

Hong Kong resident Tsang Ka-hei, 22, was amazed by a mind-co

ntrolled robot invented by Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre.

Tsang, who had a go at controlling the robot, was awed by the advanced product and

said he enjoyed the experience, adding that he had never seen such a device before.

In addition to the high-tech exhibition and food booths, music concerts by inter

national and local pop singers are also being staged in the park every night during the festival.

funk rock band, has captivated the audience with their

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

Electric carmaker NIO will replace the power battery pack

with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.

上海419品茶微信At least three NIO ES8 vehicles had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transdepartmental 上海419

investigation team to optimize the quality management system of their products in cooperation with supply chain partners.

上海419品茶微信By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oct 20, 2018, have been equipped with modules of the specification model NEV-P102, which has no safety hazards, the company said.

A senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business envi

ronment, as the country is determined to develop an advanced intellectual property protection legal regime.上海419

“We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, managing

partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.上海419品茶微信

Despite the uncertainty caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he believes “Chin

a will continue opening its economy up to international trade and cross-border inbound and outbound direct investment.”

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for IP prot

ection, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the intellectual prope

rty rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tra

de dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp
