r plant, said the four reactors are the world’s first-ever third-g
上海419eneration pressurized water reactors that are being built without any time overruns.
Zheng Mingguang, president of Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Inst
itute Co Ltd, an affiliate of the State Power Investment Corp, said China has accumulated precious experiences and上海419女神会所
capabilities in nuclear power project design, construction, and operation over the past few decades.
By the end of June, China had 47 reactors in operation with a capacity of about 48.73 million kW, and the nuclear power
上海419plants produced about 160 billion kWh of electricity in the first half of 2019, up 23.09 percent year-on-year and acc
ounted for 4.75 percent of the total electricity generated in China, according to the China Nuclear Energy Association.
“We used to lag behind, but thanks to efforts of several generations of researchers, China is now among the few cou上海419女神会所
ntries in the world to have a comprehensive third-generation nuclear power industrial chain,” said Zheng, who is a
lso chief engineer of CAP1400, a third-generation nuclear reactor technology developed by the institute.
上海419China is among the best in the world’s nuclear power industry, with di
stinct competitive advantages to export nuclear power projects, he said.
CAP1400 utilizes proven technologies and takes advantage of superior design features to reduce costs and meet high上海419女神会所
safety requirements, he said, adding China is able to design and manufacture key equipment and materials.
Over 85 percent of components and devices of CAP1400, including key ones s
上海419uch as steam generators, pressure vessels, accumulators, and squib valves, can
be domestically manufactured, thanks to efforts and innovations from both State-owned and private Chinese com上海419女神会所
panies, while the rest can be sourced from multiple foreign suppliers, according to Zheng
n of Hubei province, announced that it had punished 15 local officials for constructing a bridge that caused the de
上海419品茶微信aths of 36 Chinese sturgeons, which are a critically endangered species. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:
In September 2018, when a company was constructing the local Miyue Bridge in Jingzhou, Hubei province, a nearby C
hinese sturgeon breeding base found that their Chinese sturgeons suffered and were jumping out of the water. 上海419
An investigation concluded that it was the noise of the construction that distur
上海419bed the fish. However, the local government upon receiving the investigation report si
mply passed the buck from one department to another. The construction did not stop until one month later, but th
e tragedy had already happened because 36 Chinese sturgeons, whose number is lower than 1,000 nationwide, died. 上海419品茶微信
A later probe even found that the construction project had not undergone any environmental impact assessment. The ca
上海419e reflects the lack of any environmental protection awareness among many local officials, whose sole co
ncern is GDP growth. The construction of the bridge will probably result in tens of millions of yuan in GDP growth. C
ompared to that, in their minds, the lives of a few Chinese sturgeons are expendable. 上海419
For a long time, wildlife protection and other aspects of environmental protection have
上海419品茶微信been considered a job that belongs to environmental departments only. In this case, the local
government of Jingzhou received complaints first, but they simply passed them on.
Even when experts reached their conclusions, the bridge constr 上海419
uction still continued. It did not stop until the media reported on the incident.
This is the first of its kind, in which local officials have been punished for failing to properly protect an endangered species. Mo
上海419品茶微信re important, the majority of the 15 punished officials serve in administrative offices, not just the one responsible for wi
ldlife protection. In other words, wildlife protection is considered a job for every department.
Let’s hope it will guide more officials nationwide to have a deeper understanding of the importance of wildlife protection.
The joint conference should hold meetings as needed, record the minutes, and del

上海419The Shanghai Financial Court has set up a team of judges to deal with po
ssible lawsuits related to the newly launched science-technology innovation board.上海419
The team, comprised of high-performing judges experienced in financial and commercial trials, will provide timely and effective
judicial service to any business parties involved, the court said on Tuesday as it unveiled a 23-article policy to
上海419品茶微信provide legal support to the new Nasdaq-style board, STAR, that opened at the Shanghai Stock Exchange on July 22.
Such a tribunal is an effort to fast track court procedures, whic
h include registering for a lawsuit, conducting case investigations and court hearings to enforc上海419
ing compensations, and safeguarding the rights and interests of the parties involved. English services will be available when filing lawsuits both at the
上海419品茶微信court and online, said the court, the country’s first devoted exclusively to financial cases.
The policy also included selecting experts and scholars from financial regulatory age
ncies, financial institutions and relevant research institutes to serve as assesso上海419
rs – members of the public who assist judges and evaluate evidence – and participate in case reviewing and trials.
Considering the market influence of the cases related to the new board and the guiding role of the ruling of such cases, the cour上海419
t will allow individuals and organizations with expertise in the professional area related to a case – and who de
monstrate no conflict of interest – to submit their publicly written opinions on the case.上海419
“The goal is to better improve the quality, efficiency and credibility of judicial adjudicati
上海419品茶微信on in such financial cases,” said Xiao Kai, president of the Shanghai Financial Court.
Demonstration cases – an approach the court has used to solve securities disputes
since January – will also be adopted in dealing with lawsuits related to the new boa上海419品茶微信
rd involving listed companies suspected of making false statements and leading to
economic losses for a vast number of investors from various regions of the country, the court said.
Barbey, 78, says he saw former premier Zhou Enlai many times (during the 1973 visit). “The trip by t
he French president lasted for five or six days, and Zhou was with the delegation every day for reasons of protocol.”上海419品茶微信
Barbey recalls that whenever Pompidou visited Beijing, Shanghai or Datong in Shanxi prov
上海419ince, where the French president traveled to see archaeological sites, he saw Zhou every day.
“Zhou is a special figure to the French people. He spent some years in France as a young m
an, among the generation of Chinese students who came to the country on a study-work program.”上海419
Barbey remembers asking Zhou’s interpreter, a woman in her mid-50s, how many French
上海419interpreters of her caliber were there in China－and she answered there was “about 11”. When he vis
ited Shanghai, he was told that there were only three French people living in the city.上海419品茶微信
One of the most iconic photos Barbey took from the 1973 visit is a portrait of Zhou when he
accompanied Pompidou on a boat trip around the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
上海419The image is not included in the show at the National Art Museum, but a portrait of another i
mportant figure who had a connection with France－a snapshot of Ba Jin sunbathing in 1980－is on display. Th上海419
e prominent Chinese author also studied in France for two years during the late 1920s.
“I met him very briefly in Shanghai at his house. He still spoke French,” says Barbey.上海419
The warm tones and sharpness of Barbey’s imagery also pres
上海419品茶微信erve the vibrant details of people’s everyday lives at a time when taking photos remained a lux
ury for many. Many of the scenes and ways of life have now vanished from the fast-paced metropolis. For example, one pho
to Barbey took in Nanjing shows boats with elongated sails traveling along the Yangtze River, while another photo show上海419
s paddy fields on the outskirts of Shanghai which have now been replaced by high-rise buildings.
Jean Loh, a photography curator and publisher, comments in the Color of China’s foreword: “Beijing, Shanghai, Sichu上海419品茶微信
an and Guangxi are, in his eyes, so different and distinct from one another … His Kodachrome film faithfully captured
the ochre red of the imperial palace of the Forbidden City and the morning blue of the Shanghai Bund.”
Around 4,000 university students have provided or will provide professional s
ervices to visitors on a volunteer basis at the ongoing International Horticultural Exhi上海419
bition in Beijing’s Yanqing district during their summer break, Beijing Youth Daily reported.
上海419品茶微信These students from Beijing and Zhangjiakou, North China’s Hebei province, do th
eir work in groups at the Beijing expo, where temperatures can easily exceed 30 C during the summer.
Volunteers have little time to spend under the umbrellas, and keep busy giving directions to visitors under the sun. Wh上海419品茶微信
en it rains, they line up on both sides of the road to lead tourists to the nearest cover.
上海419Zhao Yihan worked as a hostess. She and her partner held a 10-hour post split into two
shifts every day. Standing in the scorching sun, volunteers need to make sure their p上海419品茶微信
osture and manner of speaking present the image of volunteers in the best possible way.上海419
“The happiest moment for me every day is to give answers to tou
上海419rists’ questions.” Zhao said. It makes her feel her hard work is worth it, she added.
For indoor volunteers who work in pavilions, walking 30,000 steps a day is not unheard of. Many have become exc
ellent “tour guides” — they always give visitors recommendations on the best activities and places to go.上海419品茶微信
Xu Bizeng, a college student from the Beijing Institute of Technology who works at the Uganda Pavilion, has est
上海419品茶微信ablished himself as an outstanding interpreter. After several days of practice, he is ab
le to tell the background stories of each traditional Ugandan handicraft accurately and skillfully.
The expo hall is divided into sections, including a reading area, boo
上海419k display, international illustration gallery and a writer meet-and-greet zone.
Over 10 publishers have brought around 35,000 children’s books to the event that will feature 108 activities for visitors.
Noteworthy of the event is the attendance of international children’s上海419品茶微信
book publishing brands such as Scholastic, DK, Penguin Books and HarperCollins, while
上海419the picture book exhibition onsite comprises award-winning works in 11 different languages.
Different from conventional book expos, the CCBE combines printed books with immersive child-friendly activi
上海419品茶微信ties – attendees will be able to explore reading through AR devices, reading games and live theater performances.
Exhibitors and visitors are also welcome to donate children’s books, which will later b上海419
e transported to poverty-stricken areas in China.A three-day forum focusing on the creativity of Chinese writer
s and illustrators and the evolution of children’s books in the digital era will take place during the expo.上海419品茶微信
With 161 precious Chinese cultural relics, the exhibition Three Kingdoms: Unveiling T
上海419he Story opened to visitors at the Tokyo National Museum in the Japanese capital on July 9.
In order to let Japanese audience have a deeper understanding of the cultural essence of China, and to strengthen the cul
tural exchanges between the two countries, Chinese and Japanese experts spent three years visiting more than 50 cultu上海419品茶微信
ral institutions in more than 20 provinces and autonomous regions in China to select the exhibits.
上海419The pieces, including 42 first-grade Chinese cultural relics, are expected to reproduc
e the historical features of the Three Kingdoms period which lasted from 220 to 280.
The exhibition specially selected the latest archaeological findings a上海419品茶微信
nd research results from the excavation of the Cao Cao Mausoleum, the tomb of an a
上海419品茶微信ncient Chinese king. Visitors to the exhibition pass through a dark passage into a r
eplica of the tomb chamber. One of the items on display in the chamber is a guan jar, or alcohol jug, excavated from the mau
soleum. It is the earliest white porcelain product ever discovered – 300 years older than similar artifacts.
ependent entity, the island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-ind
ependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, sinc上海419
e she took office in 2016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, ope
上海419品茶微信nly pitched himself as a worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.
To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai admini
stration and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has h上海419
eld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.
上海419品茶微信But at the instigation of the US administration, thanks to its acts and resolutions and promise of support, the DPP co
uld try to further push forward its “pro-independence” agenda and cross the red line and worsen the situation ac
ross the Straits. Therefore, the US should review its policy and stop selling dreams to the Taiwan authorities.上海419
The Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 is a serious violation of the one China principle a
上海419品茶微信nd the three joint communiqués, which the Sino-US relationship is built on. The US’ int
erference in China’s internal affairs will not only endanger one of the world’s most important bilateral ties and jeo
pardize peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, but also increase the possibility of the mainland using w上海419
hatever means necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.
上海419品茶微信The US has frequently meddled in Taiwan affairs, which has significa
ntly undermined Sino-US ties, creating worries and risks across the Straits.
But since China is committed to safeguarding its sovereignty and territo
rial integrity, and achieving national reunification, the US should not hope to succ上海419品茶微信
eed in its design of splitting the country by leading the island authorities down the garden path.
