上海千花坊品茶微信To cut fuel consumption and promote the popularity of new energy vehic
les, China has imposed tough regulations on passenger carmakers and importers, who will
be given two separate scores for traditional vehicle energy efficiency and new energy vehicle production.上海千花坊
If they fail to amass enough credits for either traditional vehicles or new energy veh
上海千花坊icles, they may face penalties and their vehicles may not even be allowed on the road.
The new draft also changes the amount of credits that a carmaker can earn by manufacturing new energy vehicles.
Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, especi上海千花坊品茶微信
ally international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.
Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy enviro上海千花坊
nment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.
上海千花坊品茶微信The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will be made in
China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.
So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.上海千花坊
The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 u
nits during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.
上海千花坊品茶微信The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.
For instance, an electric car that can run 350 kilometers on one charge would earn 5 credits for上海千花坊
its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be reduced to 2.5,
上海千花坊品茶微信ccording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.
He added that the proposed policy encourag

Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou
ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊
hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.
上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the
Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou
nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co
上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.
“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i
dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊
uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”
上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy
mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co
nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v
iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所
“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu
上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in
ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c
ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee
l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所
Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’
s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De
上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and
orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.
Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.
To explore further the challenges and huge opportunities in this area, the Novartis Fou
ndation and Microsoft are co-chairing a new Broadband Commission working group that will m上海千花坊
ake recommendations regarding how AI can safely improve health and strengthen healthcare systems. In a sim
上海千花坊品茶微信ilar vein, health-advocacy organization PATH is working with the Tanzanian government to test machine-lea
rning applications that promise to predict demand for vaccines more accurately and optimize their delivery.上海千花坊
Digital health tools that inform and empower patients can also play a crucial role in p
reventing disease. Simple, existing, cost-effective technology, such as mobile phones and broadband, can ma上海千花坊品茶微信
ke a huge difference in raising awareness of the causes and early symptoms of diseases. PATH and the No
上海千花坊vartis Foundation, for example, are collaborating on the Communities for Healthy Hearts program in Vietnam, w
hich uses digital technology to improve and accelerate control of hypertension－the leading cause of heart disease.
Finally, digital technology can help to deliver healthcare to people in remote or und上海千花坊品茶微信
erserved areas, thereby tackling one of the greatest obstacles to reducing disease. Using
mobile phones, WhatsApp, and text messages can improve the quality and accessibility of care for millions of people. In this re上海千花坊品茶微信
gard, the Novartis Foundation and PATH have introduced telemedicine in Ghana, which connects rural inhabitants wi
th trained healthcare professionals, and digital dashboards that enable better, faster malaria care.上海千花坊品茶微信
Digital data must be made part of health systems
Digital data and technology must be fully integrated into national health systems, and should become as essential as hos
pital beds. Too many digital health pilot programs over the past decade have been uncoordinated and focused on sing上海千花坊
le issues. Leadership from national governments is therefore critical to ensuring a coherent approach.
Fortunately, global and country-led efforts are starting to move in this direction. Earlier this year, for example, the D上海千花坊品茶微信
emocratic Republic of the Congo established its first digital health agency, with the aspiration of improving ma
nagement of the healthcare system, providing better care, and making services more accessible.
We can solve the global health crisis and achieve universal coverage, but only by making
digital tools central to all countries’ health systems. No single organization can achieve this on its own: we
need the public, private and social sectors to work together. In fact, the goal must be to make these new technologies s
o widespread that we no longer need to refer to “digital” health, because that is what all health systems will be.

Since 2018, with an updated policy, the authorities have been rolling out lists of specific上海千花坊
NEVs and small engine vehicles regularly for them to get tax cuts or exemptions.
上海千花坊Cui said the extended tax exemption to more NEVs this time will especi
ally better support the development of commercial NEVs, whose owners are m
ore sensitive to prices and taxes, because they usually own a large number of such vehicles.上海千花坊女神会所
Inclusion into the newest tax exemption list also endorses the quality and technical
上海千花坊capabilities of such NEVs, which will help the manufactures to build brand image and attract customers, he said.
Qiu Kaijun, an industry observer and founder of Evobserver, an influential social med上海千花坊女神会所
ia platform in the NEV industry, said the vehicle and vessel tax cut measures are part of the authorities’ bro
ader efforts to boost the development of the NEV industry, as they aim to encourage purchases of NEVs, although t上海千花坊
he effects are not as influential as other incentives including financial subsidies and rebates of purchase tax.
The NEV industry in China has been developing very fast in recent years, as the co上海千花坊
untry pushes forward with efforts to build a globally competitive automobile industry.
上海千花坊女神会所There are two main points that Chinese audiences are unhappy with. First, in the trailer there are shots of Fujian, which is ab
out 3,000 kilometers away from historical home of Mulan in history. Second, the heroine Mulan, starring Cr
ystal Liu, wears heavy makeup that is appealing to Westerners’ eyes, not Chinese eyes.上海千花坊
Perhaps the criticism is unfair as Disney has designed the movie to please Western audiences, who c
上海千花坊女神会所are more about the story than the historical facts. That’s why Chinese audiences should not expect the f
ilm to have accurate Chinese elements even though the story is Chinese and almost all the leading actors are Chinese or
at least ethnic Chinese. It shows Chinese elements through the eyes of Westerners.
In 2018, NEV sales in China maintained robust growth of 61.7 percent
year-on-year, although the broader auto market sales contracted 2.8 percent year-on-y
ear, according to statistics from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
For the January-May period this year, China’s NEV production and s
ales reached 480,000 units and 464,000 units, up 46 percent and 41.5 percent y
ear-on-year, respectively, according to Xin Guobin, vice-minister of industry and information technology.
China had 340 million motor vehicles by the end of June this year, while the number of NEVs had reached 3.44 mi

And the second is around water management. This is where Ecolab brings things like the total water management capability.
上海千花坊品茶微信”In China, we’re looking at the end use of water. And we’re leveraging out digital technologies like our 3D TRASARTM platfo

Ecolab Inc, a United States-based global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services上海千花坊
, will invest more on innovation in China and get focused on three of its core businesses, its top management said.
上海千花坊女神会所”A big area of focus for us more recently has been digital innovation,” said Jill Wyant, executive vice-president of regions, Ecolab. She is also the president of
the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud com
puting platforms and solutions. We’re in the process of extending that relationship in china. We’ve hired a chief d上海千花坊

Ecolab made a multimillion-dollar investment in innovation in China. The co

“We want more than double our business in China in the medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for so
me reasons. One of which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”
Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.
“We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic a

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.

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

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
