The government of China’s Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) plans t
o set up an investment and development fund to support the development of the Gua上海千花坊
ngdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the SAR’s chief executive Chui Sai On has said.
上海千花坊女神会所During a question-and-answer session at the SAR Legislative Assembly Th
ursday, Chui told Macao’s legislative members that there were about 49 projects relating to M
acao’s participation in the Greater Bay Area set out in the outline development plan for the Greater Bay Area.
He said Macao’s basic fiscal reserves and surplus reserves amounted to 569.54 billion patacas (about 70.49 billion U.S. doll上海千花坊女神会所
ars), while there was 163.25 billion patacas (about 20.20 billion U.S. dollars) in foreign exchange reserves at the be
inning of 2019, and the government had the financial capability to establish such a fund.
上海千花坊The fund would be set up in the second half of 2019, and would be manag
ed by a government-owned entity operating independently of the current structure of pub
lic administration. It would be run in accordance with market-led and commercial principles, he added.上海千花坊女神会所
The chief executive said it was not only a way for improving returns on publicly-held capital and for the benefit of public fu
上海千花坊nds, but also for realizing policy goals mentioned in the Greater Bay Area outline development plan.
The Greater Bay Area consists of the Hong Kong SAR, the Macao SAR, as well as nine cities in Guangdong上海千花坊
Province — Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing.

ntering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
上海千花坊in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.
(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”
上海千花坊女神会所Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.
These systems were first carried out from the perspective of the circular economy. Shangh
ai, as a catcher, started to classify and recycle municipal garbage through comprehensive integration.上海千花坊
Today garbage in Shanghai is classified into four categories: harmful; recyclable; organic; and other.
上海千花坊女神会所This integrates waste recycling, composting, incineration and landfills, and has the advantage of overtaking in be
nds. Shanghai for example provides a fixed subsidy for the construction of wet garbage resource facilities.
(2) Shanghai has the advantage of “backward force”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai’s waste treatment sets the maximum capacity of landfill and incineration fa
上海千花坊cilities, reverses the front-end classification collection and resource utilization, and reduces quantity at the source.
The city encourages classification by disposing
of organic garbage for free and calculating the cost of other garbage disposal.上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai also promotes quality control and both rewards and
上海千花坊punishes district treatment facilities through its garbage treatment fee system.
(3) Shanghai has the advantage of “governance orientation”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai residents participate in making waste classification a bottom-up action.

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.

ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu
died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛
pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s
上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.
Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not
accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛
spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the
上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge
nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.
To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus
ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信
ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma
上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th
e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi
cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信
Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro
上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.
Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha
ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信
s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu
上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q
uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信

ithin a short time, Wu and Kronos embarked on a worldwide musical tour. Their performances were well received.
Guangdong province, an economic powerhouse in South China, is accelerating development of 5G, with 8,949

In addition to the entertainment features of traditional TVs, Honor’s smart-screen product w

“We never meant to blaze off a bloody road in the fiercely competitive market. Instead, we aim to bring new value,” Zhao said.上海419论坛品茶微信

Have you ever been bitten by the nostalgia bug and tried to look up your favorite childhood
TV dramas and watch them? Often it’s the case that you soon find the fuzzy images and the awkward co上海乌托邦

To top it all, due to multiple transfers of the original video file over the ye

he good news is that digital restoration of classical TV dramas spearhea上海乌托邦

Protecting and restoring old films has always been under way, but previously the job was mainly funded by the gove
