A novel way: Booksto上海千花坊re high in the clouds

Shanghai’s highest bookstore opened at 52nd floor of Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest skyscraper.

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊

anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

“The first half of this year, only US imports increased; but its export上海千花坊女神会所

上海千花坊Zhou Mi, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Econ

“China is a developing country while the US is a post-industrialized country. A large part of their materials to make con上海千花坊女神会所

sumer goods and industrial products depends on imports,” Zhou said, adding that tariffs will only leave the US with two ch

oices—buying from China with a higher cost, or buying from other countries with uncertain quantity and quality.

“A ticket to the museum costs 36 yuan ($5), and if you book online in advance, you can get a disc上海千花坊品茶微信

But breakup museums did not originate in China. In 2006, an artist couple in Croatia came up

with the idea after breaking up and established the world’s first breakup museum. The idea drew many上海千花坊品茶微信

followers, and similar museums sprang up around the world. Many in China also jumped on the bandwagon.

“I think it is a quite new, creative form of economy,” said Dou Xuecheng, a professor wit

上海千花坊h Gansu Agricultural University. “Traditionally in China, love and relationships are not to be expressed or d

isplayed in public, but as our society becomes more diverse, the attitudes of young people are changing.”

Dou said that the museum is a reflection that more people are after spiritual satisfaction.上海千花坊品茶微信

“But such forms of the economy can be short-lived,” Dou said. “

The organizers need to strengthen the content and services in the museums to prolong their life.”上海千花坊

Li Fangfang said that currently, the most important thing is to keep the museum rolling financially.

上海千花坊品茶微信”Even though we have many visitors, we also face high rent and labor costs,” she said. “B

Despite sluggish sales of gasoline-powered vehicles, China’s NEV market has experienced a boom.

China’s top legislature on Saturday passed a law on vaccine administration, which stipulates the “strictest” manageme

oughening penalties on producing and selling fake or substandard vaccines.

The law was adopted after the third reading at a bimonthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, which closed on Saturday.

As the country’s first legislation dedicated to vaccine management, the new law will go into effect on Dec 1, 2019.

According to the law, supervision of vaccines will cover the whole process, from vaccine development, production and distribution, to vaccination.上海千花坊

Specialized inspection teams of pharmaceutical professionals will be established at the central and provincial levels to conduct the supervision work.

上海千花坊品茶微信An electronic information system will be set up to make all information of vaccines trackable, such as production and packa

ge information of vaccines, period of validity, date of vaccination, and medical workers who conduct the vaccination and the recipients. The re

cords must be retained for at least five years after the expiry of the vaccine, according to the law.

To increase the transparency of the industry, vaccine license holders are required to publish vaccine information on thei上海千花坊品茶微信

formation, inspections and punishment received and compulsory insurances covered.

Aside from strengthening the whole-process supervision, the new la

w also toughens penalties on the production and sale of fake or substandard vaccines.

It stipulates that people whose violations constitute a crime shall bear heavier criminal responsibility in accordance with the law.
