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.
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

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.

Wigmakers in Juancheng county, East China’s Shandong province, are
making great strides toward the high-end market after several years’ stable development.上海夜生活
Juancheng is a small county with a history of 2,200 years in Sha
上海夜生活品茶微信ndong province, and has a history of more than 40 years in the hair-processing industry.
Hair-processing is one of the pillar industries for Juancheng, whi

nter and processing and export base for wig products. Currently, Juancheng has a pop
ulation of 900,000, among which 75,000, or nearly one-in-12 work in the hair-processing industry.
上海夜生活品茶微信According to Juancheng’s official website, 220 hair-processing enterprises have been set up in this county, pro
cessing more than 15 million units of wig products annually. In 2017, the hair-processing
industry achieved 1.09 billion yuan in import and export, accounting for 74.67 percent of the total.上海夜生活
In the peak season, there were nearly 2,000 small and micro businesses engaged in wig produc

上海夜生活品茶微信Wigs, made from human hair or synthetic fiber, are becoming i

With the Office of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariff
s on $4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海千花坊品茶微信
sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU go
上海千花坊ods－in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US adm
inistration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.
Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute over the su上海千花坊
sidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tariffs t
上海千花坊品茶微信o exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global ma
rket and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.
The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “three zeros”－zero ta上海千花坊
riff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy－for non-auto industrial products.
Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agri上海千花坊品茶微信
cultural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington com
pelled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.上海千花坊
As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campaign, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the
votes from the agricultural belts helped him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has pro上海千花坊品茶微信
vided numerous subsidies for farmers to help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and othe
r economies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agricu
ltural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.
However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane ma
nufacturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose mo
re tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU go
ods, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.
et revolution, should be encouraged to actively participate in the program and freely voice thei
r concerns. As the toilet revolution is aimed at increasing farmers’ well-being, their opinions about the prog上海419
ram, especially after it is completed, should be given due importance by the local governments.
上海419Besides, the toilet modernization program should be sustainable in nature. And for that, the of

nd the facilities can be sustainably maintained. Since the aim of the toilet revolution is not just to accomplish a task assign

resenting results that appear impressive but lack substance. Instead, they should a

Jiang Wenlai, a professor at the Institute of Agricultural Resources and Regional Planning, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences
上海419There is a need to pay more attention to sustainability
The toilet revolution has not only improved farmers’ quality of life,
but also brought them some unexpected benefits. For instance, thanks to the significant impr上海419品茶微信
ovement in the living conditions in rural areas, partly due to the toilet revolution, young people living in the city ten
d to spend more time with their parents or grandparents in the countryside. As such, farmers will gra上海419
dually recognize the program’s many benefits and their enthusiasm for the toilet revolution will likely increase.
Also, certain villages’ experiences of the nationwide toilet modernization campaign could be applied elsewhere. For i上海419品茶微信
nstance, the model of integrating toilet renovation with domestic wastewater treatment adopted by Laiwu, Sha
ndong province, not only turns waste into productive commodity, but also significantly lowers the cost of the toilet ren
ovation. This model could be applied to areas with similar conditions and socioeconomic development level.上海419
Moreover, there is a need to pay more attention to the effects and sustainability of the
toilet revolution. To this end, a third-party monitoring and evaluation system sho上海419品茶微信
uld be established to assess the results and ensure the program is properly operated in the long run.

Jason Juang shapes HP’s new strategy in gaming PC market to boost sales in China
上海乌托邦Jason Juang, managing director of HP China, clearly remembers details of his first visit to the Chinese mainland 26 years ago.
The Shanghai airport was small and shabby. Even a short shower was enough to flood it.
In 1993, as an employee of the US tech giant HP Inc, Juang was sent t上海乌托邦
o the Chinese mainland to share his marketing knowledge and experiences with the local staff
上海乌托邦品茶微信. Back then, computers were a luxury for many Chinese companies, let alone individual consumers.
Within less than three decades, however, China has become the world’s largest market for
electronics. Having witnessed ups and downs of the country’s electronics market for over 20 years, Ju上海乌托邦
ang said he is amazed by its unbelievable transformation from nothing to top.
“We knew it (the transformation) would happen, but never expected it to come at such a stunning speed,” said Juang.
上海乌托邦品茶微信The 56-year-old senior executive has spent most of his career with H
P, starting from a front-line sales professional to his current position at the helm of the compa

Now riding the gaming and esports boom in China, Juang wants to injec
t a fresh and strong momentum into the 80-year-old US company’s business in the coun
上海乌托邦try. He wants to bring state-of-the-art, tailor-made products to China and encourage local innovation.
“With 619 million e-gamers, China is now the world’s largest gaming marke

aged to stay afloat thanks to a raft of stimulus measures and a surge in Chinese
demand for commodities, a new report by Deloitte Access Economics said on Monday.上海419品茶微信
While Australia has experienced falls in the real estate market, severe drought, stagnant wage gro
上海419wth and weak consumer spending over the past 18 months, strength in its robust resources sector has not waned.
This, combined with record low interest rates and generous tax breaks that were introduced by t上海419
he newly-elected Morrison government should help keep Australia’s economy on track, Deloitte Ac
cess Economics Partner Chris Richardson said in the firm’s latest Business Outlook for the month of June.上海419品茶微信
“Overall global growth looks set to stay in the slow lane through the rest o
f 2019 and through 2020 as well, though the extent of that slowdown looks to be co
上海419ntained as central banks start to boost their assistance to growth, and as government budgets do the same,” he said.
“Remarkably, despite the global slowdown, the world has given Australia a big pay上海419品茶微信
rise, as China’s stimulus means a surge in the demand for and prices of Australian coal and iron ore.”
上海419Although Australia’s inflation levels remain subdued mainly because of low wage growth, Richardson said the cou
ntry’s central bank is now beginning to change direction when it comes to monetary policy.上海419
“For years the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) thought full employme
nt meant unemployment of “around 5.0 percent,” but now it thinks unemployment can go a lit上海419
tle under 4.5 percent before wages start to party. Australia can go stronger-for-longer before inflation revs up,” he said.
上海419品茶微信”But getting unemployment under 4.5 percent is more than the RBA can do by itself, so official ra
tes are headed to 0.75 percent or 0.5 percent pretty fast, and things get more complicated after that.”
“We may be in for a phase in which Australia joins much of the world in having interest rates very low for some time. Th上海419品茶微信
at change of tack by the RBA is keeping the Australian dollar under control despite sky-high commodity prices.”

“Trade conflicts between China and the United States have jeopardized China’s trade environment. T
herefore, we are taking active measures to ensure both the growth rate and the national proportion of
上海千花网Zhejiang’s imports and exports to contribute to national economic development,” Yuan said.
Last June, the provincial government launched an online sup

Enterprises submit their export order information into the system so that the government is able to monitor ente
上海千花网rprises’ export situations to make forecasts and provide support for those enterprises.
Currently, over 40,000 exporters in Zhejiang have been registered in the monitoring syste
m, and each month the system offers export forecasts and analysis, serving as guidance for the go上海千花网品茶微信

上海千花网In addition to boosting exports, the government is taking steps to foster new growth engines.
“Traditional trade may be hurt by the tough external environment, and therefor
