Five-year-old Le Le and 18-month-old Meng Meng from the impoverished Jingyuan co 上海乌托邦

In April of this year, the younger sister Meng Meng was diagnosed 上海乌托邦
with congenital heart disease in a medical examination organized by the hospital, afte
上海乌托邦品茶微信r her elder sister Le Le received a similar diagnosis in a kindergarten physical check-up not long ago.
A congenital heart surgery usually costs around 25,000 ($3,638) to 40,000 yuan ($5,821), which placed a 上海乌托邦
tremendous amount of pressure on the family with six daughters, one working parent and over 60,000 yuan of debt.
上海乌托邦品茶微信After learning about the family’s financial difficulties, the expert team helped th
e girls apply for a special fund, which covers more than 80,000 yuan of the total medical expenses.
In mid May, the two sisters went to Wuhan with more than a dozen chi 上海乌托邦品茶微信
ldren with congenital heart diseases in Ningxia Hui autonomous region. Tao and Wang Xia
o, deputy head of cardiothoracic surgery department, performed the surgery on the girls with success.
上海乌托邦Tao said “it is not difficult to do good deed. What’s challenging is to kee
p doing them and encourage people around you to participate in these activities.” He hopes 上海乌托邦品茶微信
that Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital’s efforts will help cure more patients and make their dreams come true.
上海乌托邦Medical programs organized by Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital have provided heart operations for 40,000 children and teenag

autonomous region since its establishment. A total of over 9,600 junior conge 上海乌托邦品茶微信

By the end of 2019, the hospital aims to see its 10,000th patient, whose life will be greatly improved by the heart surgery.

Boris Johnson has won the United Kingdom’s leadership election 92,153 vo
tes to 46,656, becoming prime minister and leader of the ruling Conservative Party.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Johnson had been widely expected to win ever since Theresa May, the nation’s outgoing prime minister, announced on May 24
that she was resigning following heavy criticism of her handling of the UK’s exit from the European Union.
上海乌托邦In a short but impassioned acceptance spee
ch, Johnson thanked his leadership opponent Jeremy Hunt and May. He said that the p
arty will “deliver Brexit, reunite the country and defeat” the leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn.
“That’s what we are going to do,” Johnson sai上海乌托邦品茶微信
d. “We know that we can do it, the people in our country know that we can do it, and I know that we will do it.”
Johnson and Hunt were the last people standing in the leadership battle that had initially involv
上海乌托邦ed 10 hopefuls and was ultimately decided in a postal vote open to the party’s 160,000 members.
Johnson takes over as party leader immediately and will be sworn in as prime minister on Wednesday.
He was an outspoken critic of May and says he will take the UK out of the EU on Oct 31, with or without a deal with the political bloc.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Following the result, May congratulated Johnson and said he will have her “full support from the back benches”.
“Many congratulations to Boris Johnson on being elected leader of the Conservatives－we now need to work togethe上海乌托邦品茶微信
r to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government,” she wrote on Twitter.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage wrote on social media: “I wish Boris Johnson well as Prime Minis
ter with his do or die pledge to deliver Brexit on Oct 31. Does he have the courage to deliver?”

上海乌托邦Lam said the vandalism is in blatant defiance of the nation’s sovereignty and an open chal
lenge to the “one country, two systems” principle. It has caused great harm to the SAR, which is governed u上海乌托邦
nder the principle, and it hurt the sentiments of people in Hong Kong and on the Chinese mainland.
Lam also strongly denounced the “astonishing and outrageous” attacks
上海乌托邦in Yuen Long in the New Territories. Late on Sunday night, attackers in white shir
ts, some wearing masks, assaulted bystanders and commuters at the Yuen Long subway station with bamboo sticks an
d metal poles. They said they were targeting radical protesters who have disrupted local order.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The attackers completely disregarded law and order as they indiscriminately assaulted innocent people, she said, addin
g that what they did was appalling and totally unacceptable. She requested that the police chief conduct an extensive a
上海乌托邦nd in-depth investigation into the incidents and punish those who violated the law.
The SAR government has zero tolerance for any kind of violence at any time, anywhere and toward anyone.
Commissioner of Police Lo Wai-chung pledged that the police investigation will begin imm上海乌托邦品茶微信
ediately, and the force will pursue offenders at all costs in order to bring them to justice.
He also dismissed allegations that the police force acted leniently when facing the violent上海乌托邦
attackers at the Yuen Long subway station. The police force is against any kind of violence, Lo stressed.
Wang Zhimin, director of the Liaison Office, made the “stron
gest condemnation” of the vandalizing of the office on Sunday night.
Saying that Hong Kong has seen a series of radical protests that exceeded the bo
undaries of peaceful demonstration, Wang said these acts have challenged the city’s rul
e of law and seriously undermined the fundamental interests of Hong Kong residents.上海乌托邦品茶微信
He said he believed the Hong Kong government and its law-enfo
rcement bodies will punish those responsible according to the law.
it has hyped up the problems in Xinjiang. Some American people and organizations have openly suppor
ted the separatist “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” in China through political and financial hel 上海乌托邦品茶微信
p, and by disseminating its separatist ideas through publicity and diplomatic channels in the disguise of human rights an
上海乌托邦d freedom. No wonder they call white black and assume the measures China has taken in Xinjiang to fight terrorism, se

President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump may have agreed at the G20 summit in Osaka to resu 上海乌托邦品茶微信
me trade negotiations, but the path to ending the trade war remains far from clear. After all, the two leaders had rea
ched a similar agreement at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in December 2018 and that agreement ultimately fail
上海乌托邦ed, not least because the United States administration mistook China’s conciliatory attitude for weakness.
Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t 上海乌托邦品茶微信
he trade war might unfold over the coming months and years – and what China can do to protect itself.
US has not withdrawn tariffs it imposed earlier
上海乌托邦Import tariffs may, for the foreseeable future, remain steady – neither es
calating nor being rolled back. The agreement in Osaka kept the US administration from foll
owing through on its threat to impose additional tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. But it did nothing to re 上海乌托邦品茶微信
verse past measures, such as the 15-percentage-point tariff hike, to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese p
roducts that the US implemented after the 11th round of talks broke down in May. 上海乌托邦
While these tariffs have not yet had serious consequenc
上海乌托邦品茶微信es for China’s economy, their effects are likely to deepen over time. But China may succeed in per
suading the US to remove them – or, at least, not raise them further – if it refrains from retaliating with tariffs of its own 上海乌托邦
on US goods. Instead, China should focus on reducing its bilateral trade surplus with the US on its own terms. It is incr
easingly clear that the US tariffs have done more damage to American businesses and consumers than to China’s. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
The US wants to create among Belt and Road partner countries doubt
s about the situation in Xinjiang, which is a core region on the Silk Road Economic Belt, and
thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.
Some American politicians and media will continue to proclaim
the US as the judge of the world and infringe upon other countries’ sovereignty. They are also ex
pected to hype up the Tibet issue and Taiwan question, even the Hong Kong issue. In fact, their involvement in the
recent protests against the amendments to Hong Kong’s extradition laws is cl
ear. But as a Uygur saying goes, camels march on as usual even when dogs bark furiously.

The pilot (Shanghai) platform for the international operation of SIPOP successfully passed review by the Na

上海乌托邦The Shanghai municipal government issued 100 guidelines for further o
pening up of Shanghai in 2018, and raised the goal of accelerating the construction of high

nagement level has been significantly improved through a series of revision and publishing of policies and r
上海乌托邦egulations, according to Rui Wenbiao, director of the Shanghai Intellectual Property Administration.
The Shanghai Intellectual Property Administration revised the pat
ent subsidy policy of Shanghai in 2018, and increased support for high-quality p上海乌托邦品茶微信
atents and international patent applications. The Shanghai Administration for Industry and C
上海乌托邦ommerce issued a series of guidelines and set up an office for overseas rights protection of Shanghai trademarks, to h
elp Shanghai brands accelerate their overseas development and raise their level of internationalization.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The expert group of the World Intellectual Property Organization gave a high appraisal of the achievements and pro
gress of intellectual property work in China and Shanghai in the past 10 years after inspection and evaluation.
上海乌托邦品茶微信The next steps are to improve the intellectual property evaluati
on system, promote intellectual property financial product innovation, establish m
echanisms of financing risk compensation and sharing for the intellectual property pledge and expand t上海乌托邦
he financing channels of intellectual property for small and medium enterprises.
In addition, Shanghai will upgrade the service level of the national intellectual property protection center and strive to esta上海乌托邦品茶微信
blish a city-wide service system for quick authorization and rapid rights confirmation and maintenance. It will al
so give full play to the role of the office of Shanghai trademark overseas rights protection, and improve the risk pr
evention and control ability for overseas intellectual property rights of innovative subjects.
Herd instinct is the human nature to follow the crowd and act collectively – and market expectation always does not change smoothly but t
上海乌托邦ends to over-react to new information. The current market expectation of the US Federal Reserve’s rate cuts is a case in point.
On June 20, the latest meeting of the Fed’s policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee shrugged off the market’s high expectation of rate cuts and gave no clear policy signal confirming a cut.
We believe the market had overreacted in forming its expectation of rate cuts after the Fed swiftly adopted a dovish tone from the end of last上海乌托邦
year. Specifically, we believe market expectation – it has formed since May – of a change in policy stance, as well as the timing and degree of rate cuts, may not fully materialize.
We will elaborate on this now. It should be noted the misconceived expectation of Fed rate cuts could ind上海乌托邦
uce a drastic reversal in investor sentiment and asset price fluctuations, if the Fed’s moves miss expectation.
Firstly, the market may have overestimated the degree of the Fed’s policy stance change. A clear rate cut signal may not emerge until the end of this month.上海乌托邦
According to Bloomberg, the Fed funds futures market has recently priced in a 98.5-percent chance that the Fed will lower rates at least once this year.
上海乌托邦品茶微信However, the Fed’s earlier forward guidance only indicated the end of monetary policy n
ormalization, which does not necessarily point to the beginning of a rate cut cycle. Also, the Fed h
as removed the word “patient” from the latest FOMC meeting statement but did not confirm a rate-cut stance.
We believe that because of the following two reasons, the Fed is still on cautious lookout, and t
here will not be any clear rate cut signal or plan until the next FOMC meeting at the end of this month.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Externally, the Fed is expected to stand pat until trade dispute uncertainties ease, to give itself an advantage in its game with the US Administration.
The Fed would put itself in an unfavorable position if it initiated a rate cut before majo上海乌托邦品茶微信
r uncertainties over the China-US trade dispute are removed, because the pre-emptive move may enc
ourage the US Administration to escalate the trade dispute, which will in turn pose a dilemma to the Fed.
That’s because any escalation in trade tensions will, on the one hand, d
ssipate and even offset the easing boost from rate cuts and force the Fed to accelerate the上海乌托邦品茶微信
rate cut pace. On the other hand, the escalation could further fuel imported inflation, which will significantly reduce the
Fed’s room for rate cuts. The Fed will then face a policy-making dilemma of whether to further cut rates.
hing is especial上海乌托邦女神会所ly problematic in threatening to turn a trade war into a protracted and destru
ctive economic cold war,” Roach said. “Now, more than ever, a fragile world is in desperate need of political will and wisdom.”
Discussions between the Chinese and US trade teams are underway, said Vice-Minister of Commerce Wang Shouwen on Monday.
Speaking at a news briefing, Wang said China supports necessary reform in the World Trade Organization to promote its authority and efficiency.
“We hope the G20 summit could further build positive consensus on advocating for the
multilateral trading system and opposing unilateralism and protectionism.”
The country will stick to open policies, building a free, fair, nondiscri
minatory, transparent, foreseeable and stable trade and investment environment, Wang said.
