A novel way: Booksto上海千花坊re high in the clouds

Shanghai’s highest bookstore opened at 52nd floor of Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest skyscraper.

The 2,200-square-meter place named Duoyun Bookstore is 239 meters above the ground. Book lovers上海千花坊品茶微信

can enjoy reading beside clouds and have a bird’s-eye view of both sides of the Huangpu River.

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊

anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

US toy prices may rise d上海后花园e to additional tariff

Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit

上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on

an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所

pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.

上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.

“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custo上海后花园

mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the

上海后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi

na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园

iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.

上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix

and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.

“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s un上海后花园

certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.

上海后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede

d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.

My three decades of r上海后花园 that these are not

上海后花园女神会所mong the world’s civilizations. They were created amid some of the most open periods in Chinese history,” Zhang said.

Building on the conservation support it received from the United States, France

and other countries starting in the 1980s, the academy has since extended its rese上海后花园

arch work to other developing areas, Zhang said. Zhang himself led a multidisciplinary research trip to the Ba

miyan Buddhist statues site in Afghanistan last year. The Taliban turned the statu

上海后花园女神会所es into rubble in 2001 and the international community has been discussing how to restore them ever since.

“Our researchers have gone to India, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. We are going out and opening more doors to cultural inter

action, sharing our knowledge that traces back to Dunhuang’s place on the Silk Road,” he said.上海后花园

Zhang Yuanlin, chief librarian and director of the center for research on the Silk Road and Dunhuan

上海后花园女神会所g at the academy, said the Mogao Caves are fascinating examples of the cultural, religious and soci

al interaction that China hosted in ancient times through its role as a trading hub.

The cave artifacts depict artistic elements beyond India, and Central and Wes上海后花园

tern Asia, to encompass influences from as far away as Greece and Rome, he said.

One cave mural of a horse-riding solar deity上海后花园

resembles the Apollo of Greek mythology, the Mithra sun god of Persian Zo

上海后花园女神会所roastrianism and the Surya sun god of the Vedic religion, according to Zhang Yuanlin.

Another cave contained images of 12 ecliptical signs, with some resembling Western descr

iptions of zodiac constellations such as Scorpius, Gemini, Cancer and Pisces, he said.

Natural History in the P上海夜网Museum, a new three

volume book, which was jointly released in July by the Palace Museum Press and CITIC Press in B

His strong interest in zoology is often overshadowed by the stereotypical image of him as a fervent collector of jewels and antiques.

From 1750 to 1761, the emperor ordered two court artists, Yu Sheng and Zhang Weibang, to create paintings of birds and terres上海夜网

trial animals, while eight high officials with the requisite knowledge were arranged to write explanatory texts for t

he encyclopedic albums, known as Niao Pu (“graphics of birds“) and Shou Pu (“graphics of beasts”).上海夜网女神会所

He also collected a comprehensive book called Hai Cuo Tu (“an album of the abundant marine world”), which was illus

trated by Nie Huang, a natural scientist who spent decades studying the country’s waterways and coastal areas.

上海夜网”Western painting techniques were introduced into the royal court of the Qing

Dynasty through missionaries,” says Li Shi, a researcher of ancient painting at the Palace Museum.

In Niao Pu, we can see that the expressive techniques of traditional Chinese ink-water pain上海夜网

ting are kept,” she says, adding, “but there are also paintings in the album which show that typical tech

上海夜网女神会所niques from Western paintings were applied to deal with shadows and add realistic detail.”

Qianlong loved the three encyclopedias and kept them in his residence for frequent reference and the education of his children.

Natural History in the Palace Museum is edited from the three graphic albums by selecting 120 of t上海夜网

heir illustrations. The subjects’ modern names (along with their Latin references, where applicable) are inclu

ded, as well as vividly-written background information and stories, based on historical documents.

上海夜网女神会所The entries range from animals more commonly seen by the emp

eror, like tigers, donkeys, and dogs, to those that Qianlong would have never seen in his li

fetime, like giraffes on the African savanna or whales breaking the ocean surface.

Completion of tunnels上海夜网il line within reach

Most of the tunnels along the Lhasa-Nyingchi section of the Sich

上海夜网品茶微信uan-Tibet Railway have been completed, railway authorities said over the weekend.

The Bukamu Tunnel, one of the longest tunnels on the railway linking Lha上海夜网

sa and Nyingchi in Southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region, was completed on Fr

iday. With its completion, 96 percent of the tunnels on the Lhasa-Nyingchi section of the railway are finished.上海夜网

The 9,240-meter Bukamu Tunnel is located in Manling county of the reg

ion’s eastern Nyingchi city. According to the China Railway 17th Bureau Group, and it is

also the 37th tunnel to be completed for this section, leaving 10 other tunnels to be finished by the end of the year.上海夜网品茶微信

“Once construction began in October 2015, it took more than 300 workers 1,234 days to complete the tunnel,” said Y

an Qingjing, an official of the Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway Headquarters, which is part of the group.上海夜网

“The oxygen level in the region is merely 50 percent that of the plain are

as, with the tunnel’s location at an average elevation of 3,000 meters above sea level, a上海夜网品茶微信

nd the oxygen level inside the tunnel is only 19 percent of that of the plain areas,” Yan said.

The group’s statistics show that more than 90 percent of the tunnel is rock burst section, and that more than 3,000 ro上海夜网

ck bursts were counted during construction of the tunnel, with an average daily burst of three.

Wang Shucheng, director of the project, said the tunnel’s depth reaches上海夜网

1,381 meters at one point, and high geostress inside causes the tunnel’s highest tem

perature to reach 42 C, much higher than the railway tunnel construction safety temperature of 28 C.上海夜网品茶微信

“The tunnel is like a steam room,” said Kang Yanjun, who works with the group. “On

cience expert laments 上海后花园protectionist trends

However, STI development is an arduous process, and the US has grow

上海后花园n increasingly anxious that its lead is being eroded,” Hu said. “So instead of staying a

head via continued innovation, it has turned protectionist toward China and other developing countries and used u

nconventional means, from tariffs to travel restrictions, in the h女神会所ope of keeping them behind.”上海后花园

At the same time, the US was plagued by many domestic issues, ranging

上海后花园from growing social inequality to rising corporate influence, and ordinary US

people, notably those from Midwestern states, felt disenfranchised by globalization and technological progress b

ecause “the fruits of these trends have been mostly reaped by the elites from coastal states”.上海后花园女神会所

“When internal issues become too difficult to handle, politicians often rely on scapeg

oating to divert public frustration and attract support, especially during election years,” Hu said.

上海后花园”But the US public must realize that blaming China and other countries for its econo

mic, social and existential woes will not solve its issues, it will only exacerbate them to disastrous levels for all.”

上海后花园女神会所Despite the US’s effort to disconnect with China, Hu said full detachment

was unlikely in the long run because it would not be in the interests of either country.

“China’s market and its pivotal role in the global industrial chain are too important for US companies to give up,” he said.上海后花园

In addition, science requires the exchange of ideas and collaboration to progress. When faced with common ch

allenges, from climate change to changing ethical landscapes in artificial intelligence and biosciences, “it will re上海后花园女神会所

quire a global joint effort to find the best solution to tackle these emerging issues,” Hu said.

“Dividing the scientific community and the world, as some politicians are implying, is dangerous and co上海后花园

unterintuitive to maximizing the potential of science and its benefit for the people,” he said.

上海后花园女神会所Given the unpredictability of the current US administration, China needs to “kee

p a rational, objective outlook and focus on improving its own capability at its own p

ace”, he said. “We must have the confidence and patience to get through turbulent times.”

Zhu Hongwei, deputy P上海419of the nuclear power

r plant, said the four reactors are the world’s first-ever third-g

上海419eneration pressurized water reactors that are being built without any time overruns.

Zheng Mingguang, president of Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Inst

itute Co Ltd, an affiliate of the State Power Investment Corp, said China has accumulated precious experiences and上海419女神会所

capabilities in nuclear power project design, construction, and operation over the past few decades.

By the end of June, China had 47 reactors in operation with a capacity of about 48.73 million kW, and the nuclear power

上海419plants produced about 160 billion kWh of electricity in the first half of 2019, up 23.09 percent year-on-year and acc

ounted for 4.75 percent of the total electricity generated in China, according to the China Nuclear Energy Association.

“We used to lag behind, but thanks to efforts of several generations of researchers, China is now among the few cou上海419女神会所

ntries in the world to have a comprehensive third-generation nuclear power industrial chain,” said Zheng, who is a

lso chief engineer of CAP1400, a third-generation nuclear reactor technology developed by the institute.

上海419China is among the best in the world’s nuclear power industry, with di

stinct competitive advantages to export nuclear power projects, he said.

CAP1400 utilizes proven technologies and takes advantage of superior design features to reduce costs and meet high上海419女神会所

safety requirements, he said, adding China is able to design and manufacture key equipment and materials.

Over 85 percent of components and devices of CAP1400, including key ones s

上海419uch as steam generators, pressure vessels, accumulators, and squib valves, can

be domestically manufactured, thanks to efforts and innovations from both State-owned and private Chinese com上海419女神会所

panies, while the rest can be sourced from multiple foreign suppliers, according to Zheng
