One of the world’s largest rare earth producers Lyna
s has confirmed on Thursday that the Malaysian government has renewed its上海419女神会所
operating licence, but the decision has created deep divisions within Malaysia.
With a mine site in Mount Weld, the Western Australian company ships ore to its facility in Malaysia fo上海419
r processing. However a by-product of this enrichment process is “low-level radioactive waste.”
“I don’t understand why Lynas, an Australian company, does this to Malaysia,” che上海419
mical engineer Moses Lim told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation at a recen
上海419t女神会所 protest in Kuantan where hundreds gathered to oppose the licence extension.
“(The radioactivity) will be passed through our children and o
ur children’s children. We may be gone, but our grandchildren will curse us,” he said.上海419
Rare earth is a vital component in everythi
ng from aerospace technologies, advanced military applications, batteries, metal a上海419
lloys, magnets, lighting, solar grids, telecommunications and smartphone devices.
With the issue becoming increasingly toxic among many Malaysians, Malaysian Prime Min上海419女神会所
ister Mahathir Mohamad attempted to reassure locals about the risks associated with the waste product.
“It’s not Chernobyl. This isn’t going to be dangerous,” he said recently.上海419
As part of the new extension deal, Lynas will now have six months to permanently disp
ose of around 580,000 tons of radio-active waste which is currently being stock上海419女神会所
piled in its Kuantan plant.But a suitable location in Malaysia is yet to be determined.
It may sound cool but it is challenging to start a band. But for young music
ians who yearn to do just that, a variety show Let‘s Band aims to help them.娱乐地图
The show, financed by streaming giant Youku and produced by the Shanghai-b
ased company Paul Edward Production, has been running on Youku since
娱乐地图女神会所Aug 17, one episode each Saturday. The last episode is scheduled for November.
In the show, pop musicians Wang Feng, Li Ronghao, Bai Jugang and Am
ber Kuo serve as the “mentors”, and their job is to judge the contestants’ performances. The sho娱乐地图
w features 75 young aspirants who were shortlisted from around 1,000 aspirants.
Among the 75 competitors are former champion of the popular show The Voice of
China, students of Berklee College of Music, and musicians from underground bands.娱乐地图女神会所
In the first episode, there were competitions in six c
ategories — vocal, guitar, bass, drum, electric instrument and classical instrument.娱乐地图
The final winners will be part of a band, which will
be assisted by the producers to stage performances around the country.
娱乐地图女神会所Speaking about the show, Cen Junyi, the chief producer, says: “We
found that a majority of youngsters born in 2000s are fond of music and know a
bout bands. So, trying to set up a band is fairly common for some young people.”娱乐地图
Director Li Yixun says Chinese audiences can now understand different genres of m
usic as a number of music-themed variety shows have been made over the last decade.娱乐地图女神会所
“So, now is a good time to dive deeper and make a more professional music show,” he says.
“We also want the show to convey the message that band music has evolved into many diverse forms now.”

“Food prompts emotional triggers, and eating is a gateway to the mind,” Yu said.
上海乌托邦品茶微信Experience-driven and new product trials are the defining characteristics of China’s post-1990 pop

“It’s not just quality that customers are paying attention to, it’s also product innovation an
d the speed of new rollouts,” she said. “Hence, it’s imperative for brands to populate menus with上海乌托邦品茶微信
original ingredients and ideas-and they need to do it quickly and frequently.”
Huang said unique storefront design and customer experience help stores gain cultural clout.
“It’s an investment. For instance, in the case of Heytea, a big chunk of t上海乌托邦
raffic still comes from online orders,” she said. “The online ordering app helps strea
mline business but it is the storytelling that gets the tea brand into people’s heads in the first place.”
Even established brands are investing in good stories in the hope of triggering emotional responses from customers. KFC上海乌托邦品茶微信
China recently added skewers and hotpot to their long list of Chinese menu items, wishing to cash in on the burge
oning midnight snacks market that even the government is encouraging in a bid to spur spending.
上海乌托邦Rather than simply placing ads promoting the new offering, KFC used social media to create a buzz. By soliciti

“Your curated story needs to grab the attention of your ideal guests and activate their emo上海乌托邦品茶微信

“The housing policies were relatively loose in cities such as Pingdingshan,” he said.

“A total of 70 cities saw an average 0.4 percent monthly growth in pre- 上海千花坊女神会所
