Industry body calls on authorities to implement government guidelines
上海千花坊Officials at China’s leading auto industry association are calling for local authoriti
es to implement the central government’s guidelines for boosting car consumption in the wake of ve
hicle sales in the country having fallen for 13 months in a row as of the end of July.
Overall vehicle sales in the world’s biggest vehicle market stood at 1.8 million in July, falling 4.3 percent from t上海千花坊女神会所
he same month last year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
Total sales in the first seven months of this year totaled 14.13 million, down 11.4 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊
The association expects the fall to become less severe in coming m
onths because of a lower comparable base figure from the second half of last year a上海千花坊
nd because of the measures implemented to help with car consumption.
It estimated that China’s vehicle sales would drop 5 percent this year上海千花坊女神会所
from 2018 to 26.68 million vehicles. It has also trimmed its forecast for a rise in new ene
rgy vehicle sales to 1.5 million from a forecast of 1.6 million made at the start of the year.

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊
anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.
Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信
can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.
In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on
following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊
Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout
上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.
When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice
.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e
choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊
ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.
The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信
the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.
This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊
smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.
“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信
sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve
ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”
hina will pour more resources into promoting telecom universal services, as part of a massive push to reduce the d
上海千花坊女神会所igital divide between rural and urban residents, the country’s top industry regulator said on August 1.
Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said tele上海千花坊
communication universal service embodies the fundamental rights and interests of all citizens in a
country. It has been included in the supreme values upheld by the telecommunications sector for over 10 decades.
上海千花坊”So far, 98 percent of China’s administrative villages have been covered by the 4G networ
k and optical network, offering an effective way for rural residents to enjoy remote education, int
ernet medical services, e-commerce and other internet-enabled services,” Zhang said.上海千花坊女神会所
According to him, more efforts will be made to deepen the coverag
e of the network. Cyberspace should be considered as a community of shared fu
ture for all humankind. Governments should scale up policy support to encourage telecom operators in actively e上海千花坊
nhancing the joint construction and coverage of broadband networks in rural, remote, difficult and unserved areas.
Starting from the end of 2015, the central government and telecom carriers including China Telecom, China Mobile an上海千花坊女神会所
d China Unicom, have invested more than 40 billion yuan ($5.8 billion) in total in three rounds of pilot projects to e
xpand optical networks to 130,000 administrative villages, including 43,000 poor villages.
上海千花坊女神会所”We also need to ramp up efforts to accelerate the pace of technologic
al innovation to power more internet applications in rural areas, with the focus o
n exploring more ways to help rural children access quality education,” Zhang added.上海千花坊
Data from the International Telecommunication Union show that 159 countries hav
e listed universal telecom services as part of their plans to promote broadband coverage.

Chen liked to say something to the audience about his pieces and I have always stopp

Born in Shanghai, Yu, 55, studied piano with his grandfather, the composer Ding Shande, before he
上海千花坊品茶微信was trained at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and later at the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin. On
his return from Europe, Yu has become a central character in the development of the Chinese classical music scene.
Like Yu, Chen, 68, is also a Shanghai native. In 1977, Chen was enrolled to study composition at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and in 1984上海千花坊
he moved to France where, for four years, he studied with Olivier Messiaen as the great French composer’s last pupil. He
上海千花坊品茶微信is best known as the musical director for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and composed the
song, You and Me. He is also known for his cooperation with Chinese film director Zhang Yimou on the 2001 ballet prod上海千花坊

“When I first wrote Wu Xing, the piece was not well received, since the melodies were not smo

owing number of people have developed a liking for it and it’s beyond my expectation.”上海千花坊品茶微信
The violin concerto, La joie de la Souffrance, was written in 2017, and Chen added color w
ith a percussion section. Maxim Vengerov played the solo part and the violinist premiered the work alon
g with China Philharmonic under the baton of Yu during the 20th Beijing Music Festival.
The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra also knows the violin conce
rto very well since it was a test piece for the 2018 Shanghai Isaac
Stern International Violin Competition and was played by the six finalists, accompanied by the Orchestra.
“The relationship between a composer and his music is like that of a biological father and his
children. For the interpreters, like the conductors and symphony orchestras, they are like the ‘f
oster parents’ of the work,” says Chen. “As the ‘biological father’, I can do nothing about my work after I finished wr
ting it, but Yu has his own understanding of my music, which sometimes surprises me.”
Tech firm Lenovo Group Ltd unveiled its upgraded high-performance co

上海千花坊The latest system is named Shenteng X9000. It is an integrat
ed solution network embedded with several key technologies such as high-performance comp
uting, artificial intelligence and big data, which industry insiders said can tackle a variety of scenarios.上海千花坊品茶微信
“The country’s high-performance computing has embraced
上海千花坊new breakthroughs,” said Tong Fuyao, senior vice-president of Lenovo.
China has emphasized the importance of high-performance comp
uting, highlighted by the use and application of supercomputers, in making innovations.上海千花坊品茶微信
Top500, one of the most authoritative rankings on supercomputers globally, said the co
上海千花坊untry continued to dominate the world’s fastest supercomputers in terms of the number of systems.
With 219 systems, the nation tops the supercomputer list and accounted for 4
3.8 percent of the world’s total, followed by the United States with 116 and Japan with 29.上海千花坊品茶微信
In the list, Lenovo claimed the greatest number of systems globally with 173, while the cou
上海千花坊ntry’s server maker Inspur Group hit 71, and supercomputer manufacturer Sugon stood at 63.
“Compared with our competitors, Lenovo is a unique company that can
offer solutions spanning cloud to the edge, meaning the firm can meet all kinds of de上海千花坊品茶微信
mands from clients,” said Scott Tease, executive director of HPC and AI at Lenovo.
上海千花坊品茶微信Even though the US Commerce Department added five Chinese supercomputer
companies to its Entity List barred from buying US technology, Scott said Lenovo has been able to deal wi
th the development because “Lenovo is a China-based company but (has) globalized” its operations.上海千花坊品茶微信
“We consider ourselves a global asset for high-performance computing. We are able to drive the value of high-perfo
上海千花坊rmance computing throughout different countries, not just for one or two countries only,” he said.
Qian Depei, dean of the School of Data and Computer Science of Su上海千花坊品茶微信
n Yat-sen University, pointed out that though China has gained momentum in the number of supe
rcomputers globally, there are still many challenges ahead, especially in the E-level supercomputer.

A recent International Data Corp report showed that in 2018,China’s AI market size in terms of sales revenue reached $1.76

world in terms of AI theory, technology and application, and become a major AI innovation center.上海千花坊女神会所
Zhu Guang, CEO of Du Xiaoman Financial, the financial arm of Baidu, said: “In China, in the coming five to 10 yea

China’s top legislature on Saturday passed a law on vaccine administration, which stipulates the “strictest” manageme
nt by requiring a whole-process supervision system and t上海千花坊品茶微信
oughening penalties on producing and selling fake or substandard vaccines.
The law was adopted after the third reading at a bimonthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, which closed on Saturday.
As the country’s first legislation dedicated to vaccine management, the new law will go into effect on Dec 1, 2019.
According to the law, supervision of vaccines will cover the whole process, from vaccine development, production and distribution, to vaccination.上海千花坊
Specialized inspection teams of pharmaceutical professionals will be established at the central and provincial levels to conduct the supervision work.
上海千花坊品茶微信An electronic information system will be set up to make all information of vaccines trackable, such as production and packa
ge information of vaccines, period of validity, date of vaccination, and medical workers who conduct the vaccination and the recipients. The re
cords must be retained for at least five years after the expiry of the vaccine, according to the law.
To increase the transparency of the industry, vaccine license holders are required to publish vaccine information on thei上海千花坊品茶微信
r websites in a timely manner, including product instructions and labels, official approval, recall in
formation, inspections and punishment received and compulsory insurances covered.
Aside from strengthening the whole-process supervision, the new la
w also toughens penalties on the production and sale of fake or substandard vaccines.
It stipulates that people whose violations constitute a crime shall bear heavier criminal responsibility in accordance with the law.
