uropean Commission上海千花坊elect Ursula von der Ley

With Tuesday’s victory, von der Leyen has become the first Germ

an commission president since Walter Hallstein served in that post from 1958 to 1967.上海千花坊女神会所

Juncker, also from the EPP, offered his congratulations on Twitter, saying: “This job is a

上海千花坊huge responsibility and a challenge. I am sure you will make a great President.”

European Council President Donald Tusk said in a tweet: “Congratulations [email protected] Congratulations Europe.”

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who will succeed Tusk on Dec 1, said on Twitter that h上海千花坊

e looked forward to cooperating closely with the institutions for the future of Europe. “Let’s work togeth

er in the interest of all Europeans,” Michel said. The post included a photo of him shaking hands with von der Leyen.

上海千花坊女神会所Von der Leyen, a mother of seven, had the backing of her own EPP as well as the cent

er-left Socialists and Democrats and the liberal Renew Europe party, the three major pol

itical forces in the European Parliament. But many of the members also vowed to vote against her.上海千花坊

The Greens and some left-wing and right-wing parties were the most vocal in opposing her nomination.

Ska Keller, co-leader of the Greens, offered her congratulations after the announcement of the vote result. But in a tweet af

上海千花坊女神会所ter von der Leyen’s opening speech in the morning, Keller said: “Nice speech by @vonderleye

n. But beyond nice words, nothing concrete on #climate, #searescue, #ruleoflaw, #leadcandidates. How exactly is she pla

nning to put the words into action? Concrete proposals would have been good.”上海千花坊

During the morning speeches, many members of the European Parliament delivered scath

ing remarks about von der Leyen, challenging her in everything from clim

上海千花坊女神会所ate change and defense to Brexit and the divide between Eastern and Western Europe.

Monika Vana, an Austrian MEP of the Greens, blasted von der Leyen’s argument for more military spending. “A majori

ty of the EU citizens do not see defense as a priority; they see health, environmental issues上海千花坊女神会所

and education as a priority. That’s what this majority of citizens wants,” she said.

Thomas Pritzker began上海千花坊ith the National Cultural

Strategy is helping institutions achieve better rankings at home and abroad

A veteran of such US universities as the University of Chicago and Yale University has become the first foreigner appointed by a Beij上海千花坊

ing university to a management position since the reform and opening-up policy was launched in 1978.

上海千花坊David Zupko was recently appointed deputy director of Tsinghua University’s global cooperation

and communication office after working at different universities in the United States for more than 20 years.

In 2017, when he was asked by the National Cultural Heritage Ad上海千花坊品茶微信

ministration if he would consider exhibiting his family collection in China, he agreed.

His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊

y, who spent over a year contacting institutions abroad and around China to contribute to the exhibition.

上海千花坊品茶微信The Pritzker Art Collaborative brought 35 artifacts to the exhibition in Dunhuang. It is joined by key Chin

ese institutions, such as the National Museum of China, the Palace Museum and the Shaanxi History Mus

eum in Xi’an, as well as several other major overseas collections, including the Al Thani Collection owned by the Qatari ru上海千花坊

ling family, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan.

Abegg-Stiftung, a Swiss collection that mainly features textiles, dropped its “zero l上海千花坊品茶微信

oan policy” for the exhibition, opting in favor of cultural exchange and supplying 16 artifacts to the exhibition.

A hanging brocade with roundel featuring a pair of stags locking horns, on loan from Abegg-Stiftung, is one of the m

ost important exhibits on display. It is believed to have been hung as decoration in the tents of Tubo nobles as a symbol of power.上海千花坊品茶微信

“The Silk Road carries a message for all of us today,” Thomas Pritzker says. “The world will

always have problems … Yet each culture has its own history and values, which are unique.

“If we learn more about another country’s culture, it will be easier to find ways to solve these problems,” he says.

Nevertheless, he also po上海千花坊dies into Tubo cul

Tubo culture are still at an early stage.”We’ve only revealed the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “This exhibition is not so muc

h designed to come up with answers, but rather to raise more questions.”上海千花坊女神会所

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

o上海千花坊女神会所rding to Luo Wenhua, a researcher from the Palace Museum in Beijing and also one of the curators of the exhibition.

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

he rulers’ lives still largely remain a mystery due to a lack of archaeological evidence.上海千花坊女神会所

“It’s interesting for David and I to discuss where the exhibits first origin

ated,” he says. “That will trigger a great deal of inspiration for joint studies.”

for the EU to revi上海千花坊女神会所se up the nearer-term target – although

doing so has far less support as doubts remain over how to pay for the economic shift to low-

To achieve net-zero emissions, the bloc would have to invest an additional 175 billion to 290 billio

On the eve of the summit, Greenpeace activists projected the image of a bomb-sh

“With people on the streets demanding action and warnings from scientists that the window to respond is closing fast, our gove上海千花坊

Statistics from a property research institution showed that Hangzhou, with a total lan上海千花坊

d revenue of 142.3 billion yuan ($20.71 billion), has become the “king of land revenue” during the first six months of this year.

According to data from the China Index Academy, a Beijing-based property research institution, the tot

al land transaction fees in 300 major Chinese cities was 2.25 trillion yuan in the first half, a 16 percent year-on-year increase.

上海千花坊女神会所The combined income from leasing land in Hangzhou surpassed 140 billion yuan, ranking the top na

tionwide. It was followed by Wuhan, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing, whose land income all exceeded 60 billion yuan.

During the first months of this year, the combined value of land transaction in the top 10 cities was 764.5 billion yuan, up 16 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊女神会所

Foshan in Guangzhou province, Changzhou in Jiangsu province and Shaoxing in Zhejiang province all entered the top 20 cities ranking.

In terms of planning construction areas, Wuhan, with 24.75 million square meters, took the top spo

, followed by Tianjin (19.78 sq m) and Xi’an (19.24 sq m). During the first half, the combined pla上海千花坊女神会所

nning areas of land transaction in the top 10 cities was 178.15 million square meters, up 9 percent year-on-year.

When it comes to land purchases, Country Garden, a Hong Kong-listed proper

ty developer, topped the list with 98.1 billion yuan, followed by Vanke and Sunac China.

The enthusiasm of property developers grew as the land market showed signs of rebound since March, the academy said. Durin

g the first six month, the value of land purchased by Beijing-based Sunac China increased by 5.8-fold to 68 billion yuan.

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.

hnology Moham上海千花坊女神会所mad Javad Azari Jahromi also decried US cyber attacks on

Iran over the past years, saying that “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time.”

Earlier this month, the United States claimed Iran is responsible for an attack on two oil

tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The accusation was dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

Over the accusation, Zarif has said the United States immediately jumped to make allegat

Following the attack on the oil tankers, the Pentagon authorized the d

This was preceded by the deployment of the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group, bo

So by holding lectures, conducting dialogues and screen

Many modern and contemporary works of Chinese literature touch on common rural issues – childhood upbringing, family inheritance and people’s exp

erience of being stuck on the bottom rung of society – that have been rooted in Chinese farming culture for thousands of years.

China’s urbanization has been rapidly progressing to the extent that rural life has become

something unfamiliar to the majority of the population, which is very different from what it was like just three de
