utional investors, gradual proliferation of product development, and initial signs of fee reductions have been driving the future gr

上海龙凤419owth of China’s ETF market,” said Ray Chou, a partner with Oliver Wyman and co-author of the report.

For example, the E Fund ChiNext ETF, the biggest ETF that tracks the startup board in Chi

na, has seen increases in the number of institutional and retail investors holding上海龙凤419品茶微信

shares, with more than 480 percent and 340 percent growth from 2017 to 2018, respectively.

He suggested that fund management companies develop differentiat

上海龙凤419ed propositions to address investor needs, with pensions being a particularly prom

ising area thanks to the philosophy of long-term investment commitment and stable returns.

China offers consumers three ways to save for retirement – the national pension sys上海龙凤419品茶微信

tem, voluntary occupational pensions, in the form of annuities and covering only a min

上海龙凤419品茶微信ority of the population, and private savings, said Fang Lianquan, a researcher at the Cen

ter for International Social Security Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

“With regulators giving the green light to pension targeted securities investment funds last year, targeted security investm上海龙凤419

ent funds, which fall into the third category, are quickly gathering pace in China,” Fang said.

上海龙凤419″In China the retirement or pension market is on the rise. As regulators started to en

courage commercial pensions, that’s definitely an area that players should look into,” Chou noted.

A report from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences released la上海龙凤419品茶微信

st year said that the pension gap in China would expand to 890 billion

上海龙凤419yuan by 2020, but the nation’s younger generation seemed ill-prepared for their later years.

According to a survey jointly conducted by investment fu

ugust, Chinese people aged between 18 and 34 believed they need at least 1.63 million

yuan for a comfortable retirement. But in fact, they have average monthly savings of only 1,339 yuan per capita.

That all four have be上海贵族宝贝 to head their respective

上海贵族宝贝his became apparent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European Pe

The European Council nominates the new European Commission presid

上海贵族宝贝ent, who then has to win an absolute majority of votes in the European Parliament to be ele

cted to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU adop

ted a le上海贵族宝贝ad-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海贵族宝贝品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is des

igned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. W

上海贵族宝贝hile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans h上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

ave made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member state上海贵族宝贝

上海贵族宝贝Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten proc

Constitutional revision 上海419论坛for Abeime Minister S

The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli

 上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.

Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛

issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh

 上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also

prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛

And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be

come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛

But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca

 上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma

jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref

erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛

Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition

 上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.

Differences among political parties, even within o

ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛

For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev

ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信

n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.

 上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J

apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.

n 1977, Wu was admit 上海419论坛o the Central Conservat

ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu

died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛

pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s

 上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.

Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not

accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛

spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the

 上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge

nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.

To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus

ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信

ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma

 上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th

e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi

cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信

Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro

 上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.

Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha

ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信

s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu

 上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q

uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信

mposer and conductor)’s Ghost Opera, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (in New YorkW

ithin a short time, Wu and Kronos embarked on a worldwide musical tour. Their performances were well received.

The longer she lives in上海楼凤more eager Wu is to pro

omote traditional Chinese music worldwide. She never for

gets her roots — the treasures that define who she is, and from where she comes.

上海楼凤Early in 2006, Wu was overjoyed when officials of Carnegie Hall (one

of the world’s most prestigious music venues, in Midtown Manhattan, in New York City) as

ked her to help them produce two traditional-Chinese- music -themed concerts within two years. Within a short time, s上海楼凤女神会所

he began laying the groundwork for the concerts. She made special trips to remote rural areas in Shanxi (in North China) and

上海楼凤Shaanxi (in Northwest China) provinces, to watch folk musicians’ performances and to explore the origin of the tradi

tional Chinese folk music, so she could display the music’s unique charm to audiences outside of China.

“It was quite an interesting experience when I played, with my pipa at Carnegie Hall, the tunes of Shaanxi opera (Qinqiang) and of上海楼凤女神会所

shadow play in 2009. I invited the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band, from Shaanxi, to perform a shadow play in the hall.

上海楼凤Many of the spectators were fascinated by the unique charm of the traditional Chinese culture,” recalls Wu.

n recognition of her virtuosity and collaborations across di

sciplines, Musical America in 2013 named Wu “Instrumentalist of the Year,” marking t上海楼凤女神会所

he first time the prestigious award was bestowed on a player of a non-Western instrument.

In 2017, Sing Me Home, produced by Wu and other members of Silk Road Ensemble, earned them the上海楼凤

Best World Music Album during the presentation of the 59th Grammy Awards, Wu composed.

上海楼凤女神会所Green (Vincent’s Tune), the album’s first melody, based on a tune created by her son. By drawing inspiration from the tun

In February 2015, Our World in Song, which featured 12 folk songs (of different countries), was n上海楼凤女神会所

Trump condemned ove上海龙凤1314mmentative Alexandri

 US President Donald Trump on Sunday told a group of mostly American-bo

rn Democratic congresswomen to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infest上海龙凤1314品茶微信

ed places from which they came,” a comment that was condemned by Democrats as racist.

上海龙凤1314品茶微信”So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose govern

ments are a complete and total catastrophe… viciously telling the people of the United

States… how our government is to be run,” Trump said in a series of three comments on Twitter.上海龙凤1314品茶微信

While he did not mention names, Trump appeared to be referring to first-y

has been very critical of Trump and also of the current Democratic leadership of the House.

Only Omar, whose family left Somalia as refugees and arrived in Minneapolis in 1997, was born outside the United States.上海龙凤1314品茶微信

“Mr President, the country I ‘come from,’ and the country we all swear to, is the United St上海龙凤1314

desert rice’ shows adv上海后花园t of Chinese agricultur

Rice from China has been successfully planted in the deserts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a

nd its yield has hit a record high, leading to an agricultural breakthrough in the city.上海后花园品茶微信

The seawater rice yield reached 629 kilograms per mu (0.06 hectare), a result observed by experts from China and Dubai on J

The sea rice project, launched by the Wuhan Haidao International Agricultural Development Co of Hubei province last O

ctober, broke the record for Dubai desert rice planting in terms of planting area and rice yield. This achi上海后花园

evement was praised by the ruler of Dubai and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai.

上海后花园Invited by Dubai, experts from the company provided all te

chnological services for seawater rice planting in Dubai’s deserts and deve

loped the proprietary “Haidao 86” rice species. They began their work in November.上海后花园品茶微信

Dubai has quite special agricultural, ecological and climate conditi

, high temperatures and dry winds in the earing period and low rainfall. The favorable period for rice growth is also quite

short. Any small mistake in cultivation may lead to failure, the Wuhan company said.上海后花园品茶微信

Barren soil, insects, bird strikes and shortage of water

have been major hindrances for rice planting in Dubai deserts, the上海后花园

company said, adding pesticides and inorganic nitrogenous fertilizers were not allowed in the project area.

上海后花园品茶微信In recent years, many domestic and international companies tried to plant rice in Dubai wi

thout satisfying results due to existing obstacles, said company investor Xie Xiaoqing.

But the experts finally succeeded by applying creative s上海后花园

The success of the project has presented the technological progress of Chinese agric上海后花园品茶微信

Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is

a popular tourist destination, is trying to regain its past glory as a center for Peking Opera.上海千花坊女神会所

Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha

n 200 years. In 2010 UNESCO declared Peking Opera an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op

The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所

oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.

The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb

上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.

Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所

g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.

Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d

uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.

After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for

ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f

rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.
