The first time the POB visited Shanghai was in 2005, when its performance of Giselle created a se

nsation in the city, says Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of Shanghai Grand Theatre.上海品茶微信

“It is very difficult to have the company come to China, because the cost is really high,” Zhang says.

上海品茶微信女神会所”We decided to make the best out of the opportunity, and prepared lectures, workshops and othe

r educational programs to allow the artists to communicate with the public in Shanghai.”

Tickets to the four Swan Lake shows sold out quickly, and the theater added dozens of temporary seats for each performance.

The two gala shows are selling very well, too,” she said before the shows.上海品茶微信

“Shanghai audiences not only enjoy classical ballets such as Swan Lake but have also show

上海品茶微信女神会所n a great deal of interest in contemporary dance. That’s why we made the request for the POB to present the

gala show featuring contemporary dance in Shanghai when we first discussed its tour plans.”

The gala show consists of three choreographers’ works. Blake Works I marks the first collaboration between choreo上海品茶微信

grapher William Forsythe and English musician James Blake. In the Night by Jerome Robbins is a romantic dan

上海品茶微信女神会所ce, consisting of three elegant duets to Chopin’s nocturne pieces. And The Seasons’ Canon features group dancing by

Crystal Pite to music from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, rearranged by Max Richter.

The POB is widely recognized for its excellence in classical ballet, but the company上海品茶微信女神会所

is equally strong in its interpretation of contemporary-dance works, Moglia

says. Contemporary dance productions now make up half of the POB’s performance programs.

oday, the POB has 154 dancers, including 17 danseurs etoiles (上海品茶微信

star dancers), a title awarded to only the most outstanding principal dancers.

上海品茶微信女神会所While most of the POB dancers come from the Paris Opera Ballet S

chool, the institution also recruits aspiring dancers from all over the world.

“We have dancers from 14 different countries,” Moglia says.

“One of them is from China, who used to study in H

ong Kong, and after three years of training at our school, he is now a dancer with the POB.”

One of the oldest ballet companies in the world, the POB is an integrated part of the Pari

s Opera. The ballet originated from earlier dance institutions and practices of the court of Louis XIV. The P

OB represents an important branch in the evolution of ballet, which originated from t

he royal courts of the Italian Renaissance. It was in France that ballet turned into an independent theatrical form

of art. After that, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Imperial Ballet of Russia also began to flourish.

Since they established diplomatic ties, relations betwe

tween the two countries have become firm and unshakable, with fruitful outcomes generated from pragmatic cooperation, Xi said.

They have brought tangible benefits to the two peoples and made p

ositive contributions to the stability and development in the region, he added.

Both countries are at a cru2cial period in their development, Xi said, and bilateral cooperation has broad prospects. He said he

considers Sino-Malaysian ties highly important and expressed hope that the two countries, taking the joint building of the B

ontent into the China-Malaysia comprehensive strategic partnership, and add new momentum to regional development.

iners developing a taste for table-for-one tren

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

A hearing on the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports will

 take place on June 17, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for Internation

al Economics in Washington, said the FDRA letter will add to the pressure on Trump to reach a deal with China.

“It will not be totally ignored,” Hufbauer said.

Over the past few weeks, business groups have voiced their concern that the escalating tariffs on Chinese imports risked knocking consumers off their feet.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, for example, said in a st

atement: “The administration’s decision to announce a tax on every product coming from China pu

ts America’s entire economy at risk. Americans’ entire shopping cart will get more expensive,” it said.

We think the authorities should step up their efforts to

 improve the governance of ethics in scientific research in light of the loopholes exposed in He’s case,” Zhai told China Daily.

Results of further investigations in the case should be made public, including the penalties given to all involved, she said.

One reason for publishing the article on Nature was to show the resolve of the gover

nment and ethics scholars in China to improve ethical compliance in the sciences, Zhai said.

In the commentary, the four scholars said the government should release clearer rules and regulations on the use of techn

ologies and hand down sharper punishments to offenders, including disqualifying them from scientific research.

“Self-regulation of scientists is unlikely to be enough, given their potential conflicts of i

nterest under market pressures. Thus, top-down regulation is crucial,” they said.

therefore, can be attributed to the uncertainty over their chil

 children’s education-for instance, how many after-school classes should a child take per day and how t

o plan a schedule that would strike the right balance between study and leisure time, homework and hobbies.

Another source of stress for a mom is the relatively rich extra-curricular a

ctivities of other kids, which could prompt her to force her child to do the same. The fear that

her kid would fall behind forces a mom to make the child learn everything that she thinks could be useful.

Chinese parents usually have very high expectations for their kids, so many of them don’t even try to find out what their chil

dren are really good at-and when the kids fail to fulfill their aspirations, the parents feel they have been let down.

China’s IPR protection efforts bear fruit for foreign enterprises

China’s constant improvement of intellectual property rights pro

tection is a huge boon for popular foreign IPs like Peppa Pig to ride the country’s consum

ption boom, according to an executive from the trademark’s owner Entertainment One UK Ltd.

“There has been a very positive trend in China,” said Tim Pfeiffer

, the company’s senior vice-president of business affairs. “Our cooperation with the China Trad

emark Office has been very encouraging and we are more than happy to cooperate further.”

Beijing’s efforts have shown that it is serious about enforcing IPR protection to safeguard justice an

d social stability. Chinese courts have resulted in a 42 percent surge in intellectual property r

ights cases in 2018, according to the work reports of the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Proc

uratorate that were submitted to the country’s annual national legislative session in March.

Shanghai alone generated 509.2 billion yuan in touris

m revenue last year, up 13.5 percent year-on-year. Out of it, 447.7 billion yuan was contributed by 340 million passenger trips by domestic travelers.

Shanghai’s abundant cultural and tourism resources, its high lev

dly improving level of intelligent urban infrastructure are attracting travelers from home and abroad, said He.

Last year, 135 products sought official recognition to be sold as city souvenirs. Only 43 made

it to the shortlist, out of which 24 were eventually selected as they featured distinctive Shanghai elements.

Many of the products are made by time-honored brands including White Rabbit creamy candy, Park Hotel’s butterfly cooki
