better conditions for cultural inheritors.上海乌托邦品茶微信 So far, several masters of intangible culture have moved in, and the park is talking

The ultimate goal is to better combine the art of jade sculpture with tasteful design and then h上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦The China National Textile and Apparel Council has also settled in the park.
Handbags and clothes bearing elements of intangible culture are neatly placed at the co上海乌托邦品茶微信
uncil’s workshop for visitors to appreciate and, if it tickles their fancy, purchase.
上海乌托邦”We will mainly showcase products deriving from intangible cultural heritage i
nnovation in the field of textiles,” says Xia Jingjing, an employee with the textile council.
These products are selected from art masters working in the industry nationwide.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The council will also invite textile art masters to mee
t with designers and develop new products for the future, according to Xia.
“The Yongyuan office will also be a good platform to test the wate上海乌托邦
r and see what kinds of textile products appeal to consumer tastes,” Xia says.
上海乌托邦品茶微信Zhang Tiecheng, a Chinese arts and crafts master, is one of the first to move into Yongyuan.
His workshop at the park now presents a range of delicate jade items on sale to the public.
Zhang has engaged in the art of jade sculp
ting-an art form once practiced by ancient royal houses-for more than three decades.
He says that people are increasingly interested in the field because of its growi
ng returns, but that has unfortunately led many inheritors of art to make items purely for money.
Herd instinct is the human nature to follow the crowd and act collectively – and market expectation always does not change smoothly but t
上海乌托邦ends to over-react to new information. The current market expectation of the US Federal R
eserve’s rate cuts is a case in point. On June 20, the latest meeting of the Fed’s policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee shrugged off the market’s high expectation of rate cuts and gave no clear policy signal confirming a cut.
We believe the market had overreacted in forming its expectation of rate cuts after the Fed
swiftly adopted a dovish tone from the end of last上海乌托邦 year. Specifically, we believe market expectation – it has formed since May – of a change in policy stance, as well as the timing and degree of rate cuts, may not fully materialize.
We will elaborate on this now. It should be noted t
he misconceived expectation of Fed rate cuts could ind上海乌托邦 uce a drastic reversal in investor sentiment and asset price fluctuations, if the Fed’s moves miss expectation.
Firstly, the market may have overestimated the degree of the Fed’s policy stance change. A clear rate cut signal may not emerge until the end of this month.上海乌托邦
According to Bloomberg, the Fed funds futures market has recently priced in a 98.5-perc
ent chance that the Fed will lower rates at least once this year. 上海乌托邦品茶微信However, the Fed’s earlier forward guidance only indicated the end of monetary policy n
ormalization, which does not necessarily point to the beginning of a rate cut cycle. Also, the Fed h
as removed the word “patient” from the latest FOMC meeting statement but did not confirm a rate-cut stance.
We believe that because of the following two reasons, the Fed is still on cautious lookout, and t
here will not be any clear rate cut signal or plan until the next FOMC meeting at the end of this month.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Externally, the Fed is expected to stand pat until trade dispute uncertainties ease, to give itself an advantage in its game with the US Administration.
The Fed would put itself in an unfavorable position if it initiated a rate cut before majo上海乌托邦品茶微信
r uncertainties over the China-US trade dispute are removed, because the pre-emptive move may enc
ourage the US Administration to escalate the trade dispute, which will in turn pose a dilemma to the Fed.
That’s because any escalation in trade tensions will, on the one hand, d
ssipate and even offset the easing boost from rate cuts and force the Fed to accelerate the上海乌托邦品茶微信
rate cut pace. On the other hand, the escalation could further fuel imported inflation, which will significantly reduce the
Fed’s room for rate cuts. The Fed will then face a policy-making dilemma of whether to further cut rates.
For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s
上海乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.
As a trad

In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信 Supported by the embassies of Spanish-speaking countries such as Uruguay, Mexico and Argentina, the 12-hour-long open day sh上海乌托邦
how diverse and intriguing the Spanish culture is through dance performances, film screenings, concerts, foods and more. Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.
2-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.
Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信
able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.
To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete
and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.
Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand
violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.
The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.
The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa
d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
