上海千花坊s one of the country’s most popular outdoor musical events, the Strawberry Music Festival, whi

ch was launched in Beijing by the company in 2009 and has since expanded into dozens of Chinese cities.

“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” says the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band in 1990 while he was studying rada上海千花坊

r engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But the most important thing was that when I learned to play guitar I wanted to explore more be

autiful sounds of the instruments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a

上海千花坊品茶微信large fan base in China then with poetic lyrics about youth, romance and friendship, accompanied by guitar.

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerg

ing live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.

 live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to l上海千花坊品茶微信

aunch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the l

ive bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.上海千花坊品茶微信

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and gained a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 fol

lowers on their Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the n

atural charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

In the next few years, the Nanshan park will speed up con

construction of the Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School, SUSTech Institute of Microe

上海419论坛lectronics, Pengcheng Laboratory, Shenzhen Bay Laboratory and Nobel Laureate Laboratory.

The park will also dismantle old factories to add 3.5 million sq meters of floor space for industrial development.

Shenzhen’s first united headquarters building will also be located in the Na

The zone’s Pingshan park, occupying 51.6 square kilometers, is the largest among the five parks across the city. It is divided into the

southern and northern areas. The northern area features a new-energy industry headquarters while the sout

上海419论坛hern area, where Shenzhen Technology University is located, is focused on education, intelligent manufacturing and innovative services.

In 2019, the Pingshan park will provide an additional 50,000 sq km of land for industrial development through urban rejuvenation and upgrading old industrial parks.

Shenzhen National High-Tech Zone, inaugurated in 1996, was transformed from Shenzhen Science and Technology Park, which was set up in 1985.

It is China’s second-largest national high-tech zone in terms of area and ranks No 2 in GDP amon上海419论坛

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumers will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief economist at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the c上海419论坛女神会所

elebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.上海419论坛女神会所

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP growth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pric

es (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next year to the next decade is so

mewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.

Seeing trains rushing by with plenty of unused space ha

has long been a sore point for freight train operators and managers, because low utiliza

“The system collects and incorporates the operational information of all the freight trains involv

The inland port cooperates with major rail service providers and customs in Kazakhstan, Russia and Germany, as well as major ticket-booking portals for ferries and railways across large parts of Europe.上海千花坊

“At present, no other trade hub in China is able to amass such a huge trove of data as we do with our system,” Ma said.

According to the port area authorities, during a recent trial of the system freight trains r

eturning from the West were carrying goods at an average 80 percent of their full capacity.上海千花坊女神会所

Between 2016 and the middle of this month, more than 2,400 trains had hauled goods acro

ss the port area, via about 20 routes of the China Express Railway, and made their way to 25 cities in 18 countries.

上海千花坊In addition to improving the efficiency and connectivity of the China Railway Ser

vice, the port area is also expected to provide a major boost for the regional economy.

One of the most popular commodities heading west from Xinjiang is a tomato-based sauce, accord上海千花坊女神会所

“Last year, about 50,000 metric tons of the tomato-based sauce were exported to Russia alone,” he said. Behi上海千花坊女神会所

nd him, heavy trucks loaded with multicolored containers were revving up to transfer goods onto an approaching freight train.

It can take as long as 50 days for the sauce to reach its farthest destination, Naples in Italy, by sea, setting off from Tianjin Port in North China.

“The express train services have cut the journey time to about 12 days, allowing Chinese agricultu

ral goods to overtake their global competitors,” said Liu Shaohua, deputy director of the port area.

“We have already received positive feedback from wholesale buyers overseas, who have praised the rail service for its speed and low rate of da

mage (to goods). In the future, we plan to further boost confidence in products made in Xinjiang, and expand avenues fo

r overseas sales through the real-time monitoring system and the sophisticated freight rail network.”

Debate moderators are expected to raise such topics a

topics as economy, healthcare, education, immigration, climate change, and forei

上海楼凤According to debate rules, each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 se

conds for rebuttals. There are no opening statements, but each candidate will have one minute for a closing statement.

Wednesday’s debate was attended by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts上海楼凤

, another top-tier contender, along with former Congressman Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Senator

上海楼凤Cory Booker of New Jersey, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and five others.

Together, 20 candidates qualified for the first primary debate for either scoring at least 1 perce

nt support in three qualifying polls or receiving donations from at least 65,000 unique donors.

The two-night debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Cen上海楼凤

The second debate is scheduled for July 30-31 in Detroit, Michigan.

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t

上海楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from

上海楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj

ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct上海楼凤品茶微信

antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we

have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

上海楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ

ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 上海楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det

上海楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra

nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.

A lot at stake when上海夜网女神会所t: China Daily editorial

Since both Beijin上海夜网女神会所g and Washington unde

rstandably want to hold their cards close to their chests until Xi Jinping a

nd Donald Trump actually sit down to talk, it remains difficult to foretell exactly how the widely ant

icipated Saturday meeting between the two presidents on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka will play out.

Both sides appear intent on seeking the best possible outcome, while b

eing prepared for the worst. For all the harshness in their respective rhetoric, bot

h parties need some kind, or at least degree, of truce. Because both are beginning to feel the pain.

Yet ironing out the obviously substantial divergences between the two go

While some are skeptical about the G20’s usefulness, they said, many
