Museums are throwing off the shackles of convention and time to pull in the crowds

What does it take to extinguish the fire of curiosity? A few drops of rain, a few gusts of wind or a full-blown typhoon?上海千花坊

Officials of the Shanghai Museum got an answer to those qu

estions when it threw its doors open to the public on the evening of Aug 9.

上海千花坊女神会所Typhoon Lekima, packing winds of 185 km/h, was just a few hours

from making landfall in neighboring Zhejiang province, so many people in Shanghai av

erse to bad weather may well have thought th上海千花坊at this would be a night to stay home.

In the event, more than 700 people chose to brave the rain and strong

winds that Typhoon Lekima brought to the city and visit the Shanghai Museum.

上海千花坊”We made the reservation on the museum WeChat service a week ago,” said Julie Wang, a Shanghai sc

hoolteacher who attended with her daughter and several other parents and children.

“I also thought the rain might keep a lot of people away and it would be less crowded.”上海千花坊女神会所

The parents prepared pamphlets and PowerPoint files on a tablet, teach

ing the children, all preschoolers from a single class, about the exhibition Arts of the G

上海千花坊reat Ocean, Pacific Art Collection from the Musee du quai Branly-Jacques-Chirac in Paris.

Walking among the carved oars, feather masks and wood sculptures, Wang occasionally br

ought to the children’s attention patterns, figures and interesting details in the exhibits.上海千花坊女神会所

“We often see fine arts from China and the West in the museum, but this ex

hibition is quite different and a rare opportunity to see the Pacific art,” Wang said.上海千花坊

Shanghai Museum began to extend its opening hours into th

e evening in 2017 when the exhibition A History of the World in 100 Objects

上海千花坊女神会所attracted many enthusiastic visitors, who were willing to line up for hours waiting to see it.

“We started opening in the evening on more than 20 days over three months to meet demand,” said Xia Beibei, a member

of the museum staff. Since then the museum has often held “Night of the Museum” events.

Industry body calls on authorities to implement government guidelines

上海千花坊Officials at China’s leading auto industry association are calling for local authoriti

es to implement the central government’s guidelines for boosting car consumption in the wake of ve

hicle sales in the country having fallen for 13 months in a row as of the end of July.

Overall vehicle sales in the world’s biggest vehicle market stood at 1.8 million in July, falling 4.3 percent from t上海千花坊女神会所

he same month last year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Total sales in the first seven months of this year totaled 14.13 million, down 11.4 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊

The association expects the fall to become less severe in coming m

onths because of a lower comparable base figure from the second half of last year a上海千花坊

nd because of the measures implemented to help with car consumption.

It estimated that China’s vehicle sales would drop 5 percent this year上海千花坊女神会所

from 2018 to 26.68 million vehicles. It has also trimmed its forecast for a rise in new ene

rgy vehicle sales to 1.5 million from a forecast of 1.6 million made at the start of the year.

On June Kim and Tru上海千花坊to resume workin

ng-level talks on denuclearization as the two leaders met at the peninsular border village of Panmunjom.

上海千花坊It is a common aspiration of the international community for the two sides to resume talks as soon as possible, Hua said.

All parties involved should cherish the hard won momentum for dialogue, show goodwill and work together for the p上海千花坊品茶微信

eninsula’s denuclearization and a political resolution of the peninsula issue, Hua said.

上海千花坊Analysts said Pyongyang’s latest missile launches may have a negative impact on prospects for future talks.

Li Chengri, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the aims of Thursday’s missile launches are t上海千花坊

wofold. “First, the calibrated move is a protest of the planned US-ROK military exercises next month. Second, it also a

上海千花坊品茶微信dds to Pyongyang’s bargaining power ahead of possible nuclear talks with Washington.”

Li added that launching short-range missiles is a vital negotiation tactic of Pyongyang when dealing with Washi

ngton as it believes it can pressure the US to come up with proposals that are closer to Pyongyang’s demands.上海千花坊

Lee Jung-nam, a professor at the Asiatic Research Institute at Korea University in Seoul, said the impact on future DPRK-US

上海千花坊品茶微信talks will be “limited” because Pyongyang does not wish to turn away from dialogue.

“It is in a way a diplomatic gesture from Pyongyang calling on Washington to lower the hurdles, which is to e

ase the terms of denuclearization if they want the wo上海千花坊rking-level talks to proceed,” Lee said.

The central government’s foreign affairs office in Hong Kong “sternly denounced” on Thursday

上海千花坊品茶微信the remarks of a United States senator for his “double standards” in justifying violence in Hong Kong.

The Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region responded after Senator Marco Rubio, on上海千花坊品茶微信

his Twitter account on Tuesday, accused China of violating its promises on Hong Kong aff

上海千花坊airs amid the city’s recent protests against the now-suspended extradition bill.

Rubio has applied double standards on violence and freedoms, the spokesman said.

In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington

上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef

fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.

Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊

ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.

上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash

ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.

This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊

t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.

上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe

rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.

Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊

But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h

is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所

ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos

上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.

“A ticket to the museum costs 36 yuan ($5), and if you book online in advance, you can get a disc上海千花坊品茶微信

But breakup museums did not originate in China. In 2006, an artist couple in Croatia came up

with the idea after breaking up and established the world’s first breakup museum. The idea drew many上海千花坊品茶微信

followers, and similar museums sprang up around the world. Many in China also jumped on the bandwagon.

“I think it is a quite new, creative form of economy,” said Dou Xuecheng, a professor wit

上海千花坊h Gansu Agricultural University. “Traditionally in China, love and relationships are not to be expressed or d

isplayed in public, but as our society becomes more diverse, the attitudes of young people are changing.”

Dou said that the museum is a reflection that more people are after spiritual satisfaction.上海千花坊品茶微信

“But such forms of the economy can be short-lived,” Dou said. “

The organizers need to strengthen the content and services in the museums to prolong their life.”上海千花坊

Li Fangfang said that currently, the most important thing is to keep the museum rolling financially.

上海千花坊品茶微信”Even though we have many visitors, we also face high rent and labor costs,” she said. “B

vation to serve the real economy, and advancing trials in the field of human resources.

To create a sound investment environment and attract more foreign investment, the Qianhai and Shekou Area is allow上海千花坊

ed to introduce innovative tax services in line with international standards. Wholly foreign-owned cons

上海千花坊女神会所truction enterprises in the area, when undertaking Sino-foreign joint construction projects in the province, will

be free of restrictions on the proportion of Chinese and foreign investment.

The Qianhai and Shekou Area will be granted the administrative authority to register free import and export techn上海千花坊

ology contracts, as well as the record management of imported cosmetics with no special purposes. The appli

We want more than dou上海千花坊ss in China in th

e medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for some reasons. One of

which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”上海千花坊

Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.

上海千花坊”We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic and so

cietal 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 m上海千花坊品茶微信

arket 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 also a co上海千花坊

mpetitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring ad

上海千花坊vantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.

The first is food service, a market that is estimated to exceed 4 trillion y

uan, making it the second largest in the world. The annual revenue of the food service an上海千花坊品茶微信

d hospitality market has grown at double digits, providing a big opportunity for Ecolab.

上海千花坊And the second is around water management. This is where Ecolab brings things like the total water management capability.

“In China, we’re looking at the end use of water. And we’re leveraging out digital technologies like our 3D TRASARTM platf

orm, where we bring digitally connected devices into industrial cooling, boiler environments, and can reduce wa上海千花坊品茶微信

ter usage by up to 30 percent. Besides, we’re also introducing international standards on water management into the C

hina market, in a bid to upgrade the framework and bring corporate water management to the next level,” said Wyant.上海千花坊品茶微信

Ecolab and its client Nestlé are frontrunners on this, from setting

up a systematic water management approach for protecting the Taihu basin to ac

hieving the AWS (Alliance for Water Stewardship) standard certification in 15 drinking water factories.

The last focused area, according to Wyant, is healthcare. The comp

any is in talks with some of the leading hospitals on better managing infectious diseases.

“China is the best place to learn how to be agile, how to be fast, how to be m

arket focused, so we think we bring global know-how, global innovation with the w

illingness to invest in local Chinese capabilities and stay relevant,” said Wyant.

Environmental experts 上海千花坊lcomed the manda

tory trash sorti上海千花坊ng implementation in Shanghai, saying it will serve as an example for the capital’s upcoming revised regulation.

Chang Jiwen, deputy director of the Institute for Resources and En上海千花坊女神会所

vironment at Development Research Center of the State Council, said Shanghai’s waste so

rting will give reference to Beijing as the public’s awareness has been greatly enhanced due to the implementation.

“Some citizens in Shanghai formed the habit of delivering the上海千花坊

garbage to recycling stations every day, since the trash bins had been removed,” he said. “Be

上海千花坊女神会所ijing can follow Shanghai’s suit on mandatory household garbage sorting the same way.”

Jiang Jianguo, a professor at Tsinghua University’s School of Environm

ent, said there are still lots of challenges if Beijing plans to classify residential garbage.

“Most of the residential garbage didn’t have recycling value, but that trash makes up most of the public’s garbage,” h上海千花坊

e said. “How to restrict those through legislation remains a question to consider in the future.”

Beijing has carried out trash sorting since early 1998, when the Dachengxiang commu

nity in Xicheng district became the first neighborhood to classify garbage. At the end of 2011, the city p上海千花坊女神会所

ublished China’s first domestic waste management regulation, which took effect on March 1, 2012.

However, the implementation of trash sorting in Beijing hasn’t gone well in the past decade, since mere encouragement is not en上海千花坊女神会所

ough for citizens to change their habits, said Hao Zhilan, director of the urban construction and environmental p

rotection committee, at the Beijing’s People Congress meeting at the end of May.

The previous regulations didn’t give specific fines for househ

olds, companies or institutions that fail to sort their garbage properly.

Yuan Yiyu, a 20-year-old sophomore at the University of International Business and Econom

ics in Beijing, said she started to learn garbage classification this month since the implementation of t

rash sorting in Shanghai largely drove her passion to learn waste sorting at college.

“I hope to use the garbage classification knowledge more in the future to help better protect our city’s environment,” she said.
