Three men have been fined for smoking in the Palace Museum, said Beijing police Saturday.

 上海千花坊Instead of shouting slogans of defiance, songs glorifying the spirit of Hong Kong and value

s cherished by its people were played during Saturday’s peaceful rally. The crowd hu 上海千花坊女神会所

 上海千花坊The signboards and banners — hoisted high along with the nationa

l flag and the Hong Kong SAR flag — read “Safeguard Hong Kong” and “Say No to Violence.”

Sponsored by more than 70 community leaders, the rally is joined by well-known politicians, academics, celebrities, and representatives 上海千花坊女神会所

of ethnic minority groups in the city. Among them are former commissioner of police Tang King-shing, former Le

 上海千花坊gislative Council president Jasper Tsang Yok-sing and former secretary for food and health Ko Wing-man.

Some of them would later take the forum and make the plea for peace and mutual respect.

sudden shower of rain and the stuffy weather failed to deter the spirit of thousands of r 上海千花坊女神会所

esidents in Tamar Park on Saturday afternoon to show their support and gratitude to the city’s police force.

 上海千花坊They were gathering for a rally, organized by more than 7

0 community leaders in Hong Kong’s administrative and business center, to express support to the 上海千花坊

police who had demonstrated great restraint and discipline in handling recent violent protests around the city.

 上海千花坊女神会所At around 4 pm, one hour before the official start of the rally, the park was already filled with p

eople of all ages and walks of life. They mostly dressed in light-colored clothes, white or blue, and wore no

face masks or helmets — in contrary to those radical protesters who wanted to hide their identities from the police.

Beijing police launched an investigation into the incident and its official social media 上海千花坊

account on July 20 said that the three smokers’ behavior violated principles of public conduct.

All three have confessed and apologized to the public. 上海千花坊女神会所

They are aged around 20 years old and traveled to Beijing for a summer holiday, according to Beijing police.

 上海千花坊The Palace Museum is a historical and cultural heritage site that should be protect

ed by the public, with all visitors abiding by the rules to maintain social order, said police.

Having posted a video of their smoking online, each was fined 200 yuan for disturbing public order. 上海千花坊女神会所

The video was shot in an open-air area in the museum and shows a man asking who dares to

 上海千花坊女神会所smoke in the Palace Museum and another inhaling a cigarette before saying, “Awesome”.

The video enraged Chinese netizens, with one saying he doesn’t want the 600-year-old Palace Museum to be burned like No

tre-Dame and another saying the men should be banned from tourist attractions.

For the second year running, Chinese law enforcement officers will be jo

In addition to the helpful presence of fellow Chinese officers on the s

In 2018, there were six officers from China and this year there will be eight.

“Chinese tourists are mostly interested in historical and cultural monume

From his point of view, further achievements in the field will require more solid support from archaeologists.

上海千花坊Pritzker, 36, who received his PhD from the University of Oxford with a f

ocus on the early textual history of Tibet, first came to the mountains of the Himalayas at

just 4 years old. With his parents, he spent a large part of his childhood living in Nepal.上海千花坊女神会所

For him, this exhibition represents a long-held family dream that has finally come true.

The Pritzker family from Chicago is famed for its achievements in entrepreneurship an上海千花坊

d philanthropy. It funds the Pritzker Architecture Prize, one of the world’s leading architecture awards.

上海千花坊David’s parents Thomas and Margot Pritzker first came to the Hi

malayas in 1975 and soon became “addicted” to the place. Since then, the couple has made frequ

ent treks through the mountain ranges there. They first visited the Tibet autonomous region in 1981.

“When we started, the (ancient) Greek and Roman cultures and Renaissance were really上海千花坊女神会所

well understood in the West, and there was no new ground to be broken,” Thomas Pritzker, 69, tells China Daily.

“But here we discovered a lot of new ground to cover,” he sa

上海千花坊女神会所ys. “Tubo studies were in their infancy then, and we could do things that are really exciting.”

In recent years, studies of the Reshui site, a Tubo graveyard in Dula

n county, Qinghai province, have offered scholars a clearer picture of the communication betw上海千花坊

een Tang and Tubo peoples. Gold plaques unearthed from the site are also on show at the exhibition in Dunhuang, acc

By comparison, studies of burial sites in Ngari offer a more global perspective through its links with other civilizations outside of China.上海千花坊

“However, these regions are on the frontiers of the Tubo regime,” Luo says. “Details of t

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult

ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.

Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所

ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo

reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra

de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所

titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.

An important player for global governance

The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm

ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves

tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne

gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and

expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.

On the one hand, Xi’s speech brought hope to the world economy at a time when glo

bal economic recovery is facing challenges and uncertainties thanks to the rise of trade protectionism and unila

teralism in some economies since 2017. In fact, protectionism and unilateralism have become an impediment to global growth.

Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

ming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock bands that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed. 上海千花坊

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a

reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

 上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a

nd techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所

nese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established B

eijing-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head fro

 上海千花坊女神会所m Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiulian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

ng was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.

Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry

d China has always called for resolving trade tensions with the US through dia

上海千花坊logue and consultation, but it will firmly safeguard its own legitimate interests.

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.上海千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.上海千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

上海千花坊mercial reasons, harm the interests of Chinese companies, will be released soon,

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

上海千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

上海千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

tracts. They can further level the playing field for both homegrown and foreign companies.”上海千花坊
