“Trade protectionism had challenged the globalization process of the world and had bee

Barry became a hurricane as it was making its final approach toward the Gulf Coa
st onto the southern US state of Louisiana on Saturday morning, according to the NHC. 上海夜网女神会所
Barry is expected to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains across the north-central Gulf Coast foll
上海夜网女神会所owing its landfall, mainly due to its slow movement toward the inland region. Residents in the
affected regions who had not been put under voluntary or mandatory evacuation were told to take shelter. 上海夜网
Local governments and residents have geared up for the hurricane. N

of flooding. Mississippi River is forecast to crest at 19 feet (about 5.8 meters) in New Orleans on Saturday.
In New Orleans, voluntary evacuations have been issued for areas which are not protected by levees. 上海夜网
Both US states of Louisiana and Mississippi have declared state of emergency in advance of Barry’s arrival.
Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou
ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊
hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.
上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the
Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou
nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co
上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.
“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i
dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊
uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”
上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy
mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co
nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v
iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所
“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu
上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in
ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c
ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee
l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所
Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’
s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De
上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and
orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.
Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.
ority will continue to come up with measures to grow the construction of facilities t
hat protect intangible cultural heritage and offer better conditions for cultural inheritors.上海乌托邦品茶微信
So far, several masters of intangible culture have moved in, and the park is talking
上海乌托邦with more than 30 inheritors nationwide about some form of cooperation.
The park offers more than 30 spaces for traditional artists to meet guests and show their work.
For example, many artists will make bracelets because they are currently popular,” Zhang says.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“But jade, after all, is non-renewable. If we all cut good material to make quick consumables, it would be pointless,” he adds.
上海乌托邦Zhang believes joining Yongyuan will allow for more thorough, long-term learning am
ong artisans in his field and collaboration with designers who are more familiar with the market.
The ultimate goal is to better combine the art of jade sculpture with tasteful design and then h上海乌托邦
elp the public to gain a better appreciation for the beauty of this traditional art, Zhang says.
上海乌托邦The China National Textile and Apparel Council has also settled in the park.
Handbags and clothes bearing elements of intangible culture are neatly placed at the co上海乌托邦品茶微信
uncil’s workshop for visitors to appreciate and, if it tickles their fancy, purchase.
上海乌托邦”We will mainly showcase products deriving from intangible cultural heritage i
nnovation in the field of textiles,” says Xia Jingjing, an employee with the textile council.
These products are selected from art masters working in the industry nationwide.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The council will also invite textile art masters to mee
t with designers and develop new products for the future, according to Xia.
“The Yongyuan office will also be a good platform to test the wate上海乌托邦
r and see what kinds of textile products appeal to consumer tastes,” Xia says.
上海乌托邦品茶微信Zhang Tiecheng, a Chinese arts and crafts master, is one of the first to move into Yongyuan.
His workshop at the park now presents a range of delicate jade items on sale to the public.
Zhang has engaged in the art of jade sculp
ting-an art form once practiced by ancient royal houses-for more than three decades.
He says that people are increasingly interested in the field because of its growi
ng returns, but that has unfortunately led many inheritors of art to make items purely for money.

After months of constru上海419论坛ction, Yongyuan opened in late June.
The southern building which used to be Sanlu Plant’s production area now serves a space for the high-end customization and in

The building in the north has been transformed into a retail sp
ace, where visitors can buy products such as handmade bags and traditionally created art.上海419论坛
Yongyuan park will focus on the development of intangible cultural heritage. It was set up to
allow inheritors to work with designers and find ways to blend the traditional arts more seamlessly into public life.
上海419论坛品茶微信So far, many inheritors are confined to limited development space, says Li.
The cultural product concept falls behind the times and is separated from modern design and sales, he adds.
“We need to bring together good designers and intangible culture inheritors for product innovation,” Li says.上海419论坛品茶微信

tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department
has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419
atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl
上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.
The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419
sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.
上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.
The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a
cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419
he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.
上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f
or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信
olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o
f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419
Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t
he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信
dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2
016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信
worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.
To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr
ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he
ld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

上海夜生活That could be said of Gauff, of course, but she sure is looking like someone who can go far in the coming years.
She has a big serve, dialing it up to 118 mph on Friday — only Hercog
and Serena Williams have hit one faster this week — and good groundstrokes off both wings, al上海夜生活品茶微信
ong with some touch and guile. And what she possesses, above all, is some real calm amid a storm.
As Hercog perfectly put it: “She’s probably older in her head than the numbers show.”上海夜生活
Hercog, who is ranked 60th, and is now 0-4 in third-round matches at majors, used a seven-game run to grab the open
上海夜生活品茶微信ing set, the first dropped by Gauff in qualifying or the main draw, and then go up 5-2 in the second.
With Gauff serving at 30-40, Hercog was a point from victory. But the teen conjured
up a backhand slice winner that dropped right on the chalk — a shot she only recently added to her repertoire.上海夜生活
After Gauff’s aggressive style paid off there, it was Hercog who really we
nt into a shell, playing so cautiously and making mistake after mistake. A big one came wh上海夜生活品茶微信
en Hercog served for the match at 5-3 and held her second match point: She double-faulted.
上海夜生活Eventually they headed to a tiebreaker, Gauff’s first at a tour-level event.
Yet another reminder how new all of this is for her. Her play th
en offered yet another reminder how capable she is of handling it all.上海夜生活品茶微信
“We’ve been working on her poise all year,” Gauff’s father, Corey, said earlier in the week. “After that comes together, th
en you really can improve your game, because when you’re poised, you’re not that emotional. You can troubleshoot.”
