Signify shows China in上海夜网 its best lightDutch lighti

Dutch lighting specialist helps advance smart city initiative with lower energy use and reduced operating costs

Ahead of the inaugural China International Import Expo上海夜网

last year, the Bund, Shanghai’s famous waterfront, was given a dramatic face-lift when it was illum

上海夜网女神会所inated along with three bridges and more than 40 buildings in the financial and tourist districts.

Dutch lighting specialist Signify, formerly known as Philips Lighting, was responsible for the illumination. The com

pany said it is the largest, single, architectural lighting project in Signify’s 127-year history and illustrates the co上海夜网

mpany’s leadership in unlocking the potential of connected lighting to transform cities.

“The upgraded lighting system helps demonstrate Shanghai’s cultural heritage in a more vivid

way, creating impressive night scenes in an energy efficient way,” said Eric Rondolat, CEO of Signify.

上海夜网女神会所With more than 44 million connected light points and 6.4 billion e

uros ($7.21 billion) in sales last year, Signify is rated by multiple market agencies including the D

ow Jones Sustainability Index as the top player in conventional lighting, LED and connected lighting.上海夜网

Rondolat said Signify is committed to helping Chinese cities to develop more eco-friendly business and tourist landm

上海夜网女神会所arks by using connected LED lighting to lower energy use and reduce operating costs. The new lighting is expe

cted to save the city 50-70 percent of its annual lighting costs compared to areas using conventional lighting.

Some of Signify’s exhibits during the last CIIE underscored its ambition to help adva上海夜网女神会所

nce China’s smart city initiative, such as Li-Fi lighting, horticultural products for

city farms, a newly launched internet of things platform and the Philips Hue, a smart lighting system for homes.

A 2015 report by Brookin上海千花网olars Stuart Butler an

 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

aid “there remains a stark, persistent, white-black racial divide” from the rate of poverty to the level of education.

上海千花网Rice can also compare notes with her current colleagues, such as Derek

Hyra, an associate professor at the American University, where Rice is now a disting上海千花网女神会所

uished visiting research fellow in its School of International Service. I cherish my chat with Hyra on the racial issue two y

上海千花网ears ago in Washington and learned a lot from his book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Rice may call me biased if I share my observations on the racial issue after living and working in

Washington for five years. But fellow journalists have covered extensively the racial segregation in Washington.上海千花网女神会所

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

roblems rather than distracting public attention by making a fuss over Zhao’s tweet.

In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington

上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef

fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.

Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊

ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.

上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash

ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.

This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊

t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.

上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe

rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.

Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊

But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h

is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所

ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos

上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.

Despite the moderating GDP growth, activities rebounded visibly in June, with almost all the growth indicators beating expe

Cheng Shi, the chief economist with ICBC International Holdings Ltd, echoed Wang’s view and said followi

上海龙凤419The PBOC adopted targeted RRR reduction twice this year to support priv

The government is expected to continue the proactive fiscal policy, w上海龙凤419品茶微信

上海龙凤419Meng Wei, a spokeswoman of the National Development and Reform Commission, said the government would p

The growth of infrastructure investment is expected to rebound to “m上海龙凤419品茶微信

The government could also ease the criteria for the issuance of sp上海龙凤419品茶微信

major national projects, said Lian Ping, chief economist with the Bank of Communications.

ump administration mov上海后花园p more immigrants

The Trump administration on Monday moved to bar almost all immigrants from appl

ying for asylum at the country’s southern border, requiring them to first pursue safe上海后花园女神会所

haven in a third country through which they had traveled on the way to the United States.

上海后花园The Department of Homeland Security, in a statement issued with the Departme

nt of Justice, said the interim rule would set a “new bar” for immigrants “by

placing further restrictions or limitations on eligibility for aliens who seek asylum in the United States.”

The American Civil Liberties Union called the new rule “patently unlawful” and vowed to file a lawsuit.上海后花园女神会所

The rule would make it all but impossible for applicants seeking p

rotection from persecution unless they first apply for asylum in “third count

上海后花园ry” such as Mexico or Guatemala, through which they traveled en route to the United States.

It was just short of a “nuclear option, close to something like shutti

ng down the border,” said Jessica Vaughan from the Center上海后花园女神会所

for Immigration Studies, which supports increased immigration restrictions.

上海后花园uatemala, which both sends migrants the United States and receives Hondurans and Salvadorans passing through, said on Sunday it wo

uld postpone President Jimmy Morales’ visit to Washington to discuss Guatemala’s potential designati

on as a “safe third country” for asylum seekers, stressing it had no plans to sign such an agreement.上海后花园

The proposed changes, set to become official on Tuesday, represent the latest effort by the Trump administration to c

rack down on immigration, the signature issue that helped propel Trump to the Wh上海后花园女神会所

ite House in the 2016 election and one already figuring prominently in the 2020 campaign.

The change 上海后花园would also place an even higher burden on Mexico, w

hich has been somewhat cooperative with US efforts to slow Central American immigration.

Mexico pushed back on Monday, saying asylum-seekers上海后花园女神会所

rejected by the United States should have to go back to their home countries, not Mexico.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcel Ebrard said the new US rule would not unila上海后花园女神会所

terally convert Mexico into a designated “safe third country,” a status that would

oblige it to offer asylum to those who entered its territory en route to the United States.

When we have performe上海千花坊around the world

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.”

Restoration gives classi上海乌托邦as a new lease on

Have you ever been bitten by the nostalgia bug and tried to look up your favorite childhood

TV dramas and watch them? Often it’s the case that you soon find the fuzzy images and the awkward co上海乌托邦

lor so unbearable that you drop the show after watching it for no more than three minutes.

上海乌托邦女神会所However, recently a special film viewing marathon was held by Youku, a video streaming site owned by Alibaba, at a cinema in B

eijing. The event featured nonstop episodes of a digitally-restored version of the 2006 hit TV dra

a Soldiers Sortie, and attracted a large crowd of diehard fans, many born after 1995.上海乌托邦

Although the intensive viewing was quite a test of physical strength, much to everyone’s s

urprise, the greatly-enhanced definition of the restored version stood the test of the big screen.

上海乌托邦女神会所With the advent of the Ultra HD era characterized by enhanced set-top boxes, ever-evolving virtual reality technologies, and

display devices nearly all with an aspect ratio of 16:9 – when many of the original classical TV and film pro

ductions made with the 4:3 aspect ratio – they now look like “running mosaics” on today’s much wider screens.上海乌托邦

To top it all, due to multiple transfers of the original video file over the ye

上海乌托邦女神会所ars, the edges of picture have become serrated. Plus, stored for decades, negatives of tho

se classic shows have all been subject to severe color shift that calls for correction.

he good news is that digital restoration of classical TV dramas spearhea上海乌托邦

ded by China’s top video streaming websites, like Youku and iQiyi, is now in full swing.

Protecting and restoring old films has always been under way, but previously the job was mainly funded by the gove

rnment. By the end of 2011, as much as 265 million yuan ($38.6 million) had been appropriated for digital restoration wo上海乌托邦女神会所

Liang’s comments came 上海楼凤S Department of

erce said it would issue licenses to US companies seeking to sell products to Huawei when there is no threat to national security.上海楼凤

上海楼凤品茶微信Huawei was put on the US Entity List in May, which banned it from

buying technologies originating in the US without special government approval.

Liang said despite the US government “crackdown”, Huawei has achieved growth上海楼凤

in the first half of this year and specific financial data will be released by month’s end.

The senior executive also explained that the company’s self-developed operating system Hong-Me上海楼凤

ng is designed to power internet of things applications such as self-driving vehicles and remote medical services.

上海楼凤品茶微信”When it comes to operating systems for smartphones, Android and its open ecosystem is

still the top choice. It is undecided yet whether to use HongMeng for smartphones,” Liang said.

According to Huawei, the company will step up investments to ensure cybersecurity and protect users’ privacy.

In 2018, Huawei has evaluated 2,778 of its mainstream suppliers

for cybersecurity risks, and verified the progress of related corrective action plans上海楼凤

. It also signed a data protection agreement with 582 suppliers for privacy protection, and performed due diligence on

上海楼凤品茶微信these suppliers, said the 2018 Sustainability Report which Huawei unveiled on Friday.

Lyu Tingjie, a professor at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommun

ications, said Huawei has demonstrated strong resilience toward all the geopolitical pressure, and its c

onsistent research and development input will help it overcome all the challenges.上海楼凤

“But the US government has become the biggest source of uncertainty for the global electronics industry. It constantly chang

上海楼凤品茶微信es its attitude and failed to clarify what products can be resumed to sell to Huawei,” Lyu said.

On Friday, Liang also highlighted Huawei’s determination to pursue green devel

opment by achieving innovation in the course of its 5G research, product development, and engineering.

Huawei has managed to reduce the 上海楼凤power consumption per 5G site to 20 percent less than the

industry average. This has been made possible by the new Huawei chipsets, system software, pr

ofessional services, and advanced hardware and heat dissipation technologies.上海楼凤品茶微信

“These innovative technologies have made Huawei’s 5G more energy-efficient. With the right solutions, Huawei’s 5G will be a green technology,” Liang said.
