An international forum on fossil protection was held Sunday in northeast China’s Heilo上海后花园
ngjiang province, attracting over 180 paleontologists worldwide, according to the organizer.
The paleontologists from more than ten countries including Russia, Japan and Fr
上海后花园女神会所ance exchanged views on fossil protection, tourism featuring geological cult
ures, the study of the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary and other issues in Jiayin county in the province.
The county is home to the first K-Pg boundary layer discovered in China, which
marks the period when the extinction of dinosaurs and other species occurred about 66 million years ago.上海后花园
Paleontologists have made great achievements in the study of paleontological fossil in the county in past
years, said Volker Mosbrugger, an academician of the German Academy of Sciences, adding that the forum p上海后花园
romoted the development of paleontological study and the tourism in the county.
The four-day forum was hosted by Paleontological Society of上海后花园女神会所
China, during which seminars, field research and other events will be held.
Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit
上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on
an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所
pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.
上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian
ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.
“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custo上海后花园
mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the
上海后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi
na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.
It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园
iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.
上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix
and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.
“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s un上海后花园
certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.
上海后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede
d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.
t just invaluable repositories of Buddhist art, the artifacts also illuminate the historical and cultural interactions a

Building on the conservation support it received from the United States, France
and other countries starting in the 1980s, the academy has since extended its rese上海后花园
arch work to other developing areas, Zhang said. Zhang himself led a multidisciplinary research trip to the Ba
miyan Buddhist statues site in Afghanistan last year. The Taliban turned the statu

“Our researchers have gone to India, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. We are going out and opening more doors to cultural inter

Zhang Yuanlin, chief librarian and director of the center for research on the Silk Road and Dunhuan
上海后花园女神会所g at the academy, said the Mogao Caves are fascinating examples of the cultural, religious and soci
al interaction that China hosted in ancient times through its role as a trading hub.
The cave artifacts depict artistic elements beyond India, and Central and Wes上海后花园
tern Asia, to encompass influences from as far away as Greece and Rome, he said.
One cave mural of a horse-riding solar deity上海后花园
resembles the Apollo of Greek mythology, the Mithra sun god of Persian Zo
上海后花园女神会所roastrianism and the Surya sun god of the Vedic religion, according to Zhang Yuanlin.
Another cave contained images of 12 ecliptical signs, with some resembling Western descr

The damp lawns of Victoria Park were packed with participants. At one point in the public rally, youngsters took the stage to上海后花园品茶微信

Emma Chan Ming-kwan took her 13-year-old son to the rally in hopes of teaching him “to tell right from wrong”.

unday. To some extent, Japan also intends to show the United States that it will respond aggressively to any moves it con
上海后花园女神会所siders harmful to the country, so that the US stops coercing Japan to compromise its economic interests.
Yet in so doing Tokyo has adopted the US’ unilateral strategy of using economic sanctions to resolve non-economic issues. This will harm the RO 上海后花园
K as Japan expects, but it will also deal a blow to the regional economy and stability by hindering the progress of the China-Ja
上海后花园pan-ROK free trade agreement, especially because Seoul is mulling taking countermeasures against Tokyo, which cou
ld worsen the situation, and the US is not expected to sincerely mediate between its two allies. 上海后花园
The trade spat between the two neighbors has its roots in a series of events including the 2018 radar lock-on dispute, the closi
上海后花园女神会所ng of Japan-funded “comfort women” foundation and the controversy over some ROK officials demanding the Ja
panese emperor’s apology for Japan’s war crimes. And the Abe administration’s displeasure with Seoul’s policies under Presid 上海后花园女神会所
ent Moon Jae-in, as reflected in Moon’s engagement with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, has boiled over.
But Tokyo’s move to wield the high-tech stick could draw the two countries into a vicious circle of attack and retaliation, in part 上海后花园
icular, because Seoul could respond in kind to what Moon said was an unprecedented emergency. In fact, anti-
上海后花园女神会所Japan sentiments are raging through the ROK with some shops ceasing to sell Japanese products.
The latest Tokyo-Seoul conflict has not only created new problems for b
ilateral ties but also threatens to weaken the economic and political fabric of East A 上海后花园
sia, which would be detrimental to the further integration of the regional economies, and make it more difficult for the
world to maintain economic stability and prosperity in the face of increasing trade disputes. 上海后花园女神会所
The deteriorating relations between Tokyo and Seoul have caused much worry amon
g US elites, too, because the US’ alliance with the two countries has helped Washington to consolidate its str 上海后花园
ategic foothold in the Asia-Pacific region while Japan’s actions against the ROK could push the latter closer to China on
economic and strategic issues. But despite the souring of relations, Japan and the ROK are not likely to engage in a se 上海后花园女神会所
curity conflict, because the ROK remains highly dependent on the US when it comes to security.
