Comments Off on The voice of Hong上海楼凤t majority must be heard
It should not come as a surprise that more than 300,000 Hong Kong residents, from all w
alks of life and from different nationalities, participated in a rally convened by over 70 civic leaders on Saturday.上海楼凤品茶微信
That the organizers represented the business sector, student groups, civic organizati
上海楼凤品茶微信ons and police associations shows they’ve had enough of the radical youths, who for weeks have made hea
dlines for resorting to violence supposedly to oppose an amendment to Hong Kong’s extradition law.上海楼凤
These radical youths have attacked police officers, stormed the legislature, and laid sie
ge to the police headquarters, all carried out in illegal and violent fashion, which th
上海楼凤品茶微信e silent majority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region could no longer remain mute spectators to.
This silent majority gathered together with one purpose in mind: to defend the SAR, its residents, its business and its values上海楼凤
by demanding an immediate end to the violence. The message “end divisions, defend Hong Kong” was read out
loud and clear by a young student at the rally held in Hong Kong’s central administrative and business center.
上海楼凤The silent majority of the SAR would have preferred to live a peaceful life and strive to achieve their dreams rather than rack t
heir brains over politics were it not for the danger their city is facing. Hong Kong’s social order and reputation as one of t
he world’s safest cities are not the only things at risk. The rule of law－which H上海楼凤
ong Kong residents cherish most and is crucial for the SAR’s long-term stability and prosperity－is also under threat.上海楼凤品茶微信
The radical elements’ sustained attacks on Hong Kong’s social fabric are a potent threat to the SAR’s上海楼凤品茶微信

A two-month-old baby with serious illnesses was rushed by land and air from Enshi, Central China’s Hubei province, to Wuhan Chil
dren’s Hospital, 500 kilometers away, to receive urgent treatment by way of Yichang, a city in between.上海夜生活
The boy, nicknamed Xiaoen, is an abandoned infant. About a month ago on June 16, he was discovered under a bri
上海夜生活品茶微信dge by a passerby in Lichuan, Enshi and sent to a local children’s welfare home for care and adoption.
One day later, the staff at the welfare home found Xiaoen’s face had turned blue and上海夜生活
purple and he was short of breath. He was soon taken to the central hospital of Enshi.
上海夜生活品茶微信Xiaoen was diagnosed with a number of cardiac and pulmonary ill
nesses, including congenital heart disease, pulmonary infection and pulmonary arter上海夜生活
ial hypertension. Treatments to strengthen the heart, help him urinate and control infection were given to the baby boy.
上海夜生活品茶微信During his 33-day hospitalization, Xiaoen was in critical condition and several times had to undergo emergency treatments.
Given the great complexity of Xiaoen’s case, the doctors decided to transfer him to a more advanced medica
l facility where he could receive advanced treatment to increase his chances of life. They contacted the Wuhan Children’s H上海夜生活品茶微信
ospital, a higher-level facility in the province’s capital, Wuhan, and asked for assistance.
On July 16, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital received the application for hospital transfer. After revie上海夜生活
wing the case, a group of experts, including those specializing in cardiothoracic and cardiovascular diseases, came to the sa
上海夜生活品茶微信me conclusion: That the patient had been in critical condition, that heart failure emerged due to multiple pulm
onary infections and he was in need of operations as soon as possible. A hospital transfer became imperative.上海夜生活
The distance from Enshi to Wuhan exceeds 500 kilometers. It would take at least eight ho
上海夜生活urs for an ambulance to cover the distance, but a faster high-speed train or passenger plane couldn’t
be loaded with the medical equipment necessary to keep the baby alive during transport.
At last, the Wuhan Children’s Hospital decided to employ a medical rescue helicopter to transport the sick baby. It carries上海夜生活品茶微信
a ventilator, infusion pump, ECG monitor and many other medical devices and the trip to Enshi would only take two hours.
The transfer was originally scheduled for Wednesday but unfavorable weather conditions hindered the helicopter’s takeoff. R
上海夜生活品茶微信ainy season has been upon Hubei and massive rainfalls have affected many parts of the province. Mountain ranges on
the flight path have been shrouded in heavy mists and clouds, posing a high risk to the safety of the flight.上海夜生活品茶微信
On Friday, Xiaoen’s condition deteriorated again. There was not much time left to wait and a new plan was proposed.
Comments Off on It goes without saying t上海龙凤419 of both signatori
ies from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the wo
上海龙凤419品茶微信rld order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the US’ latest one
in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US disp
ensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mechanism上海龙凤419
s, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.
上海龙凤419品茶微信Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilateral relations. The actions of the US a
nd Russia have further worsened their relations following their face-off over the Ukraine crisis and the S
yrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both sides in th上海龙凤419
e Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means their ta
ctical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.
上海龙凤419品茶微信Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarmam
ent process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev上海龙凤419
elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.
Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now
上海龙凤419品茶微信deploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuel
ling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major
powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.上海龙凤419
What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discu
ssions on certain international issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Re上海龙凤419品茶微信
garding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving international
relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and therefore re

nilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.
Comments Off on That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in
e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa
rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信
上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog
ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.
The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦
es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad
opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has
上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig
ned 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上海乌托邦
上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh
ile 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 hav上海乌托邦品茶微信
e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.
Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU
上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro
pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.
Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦
and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur
opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信
support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

Comments Off on Re-weighting of indexes 上海会所affect capital flows
Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten
上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.
Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信
Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la
上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent－a significant inc
rease from the current 0.7 percent－of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.
The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所
na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f
上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.
And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所
ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R
ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信
The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a
sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr
上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and
other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit

bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

With the Office of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariff

sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU go
上海千花坊ods－in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US adm
inistration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.
Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute over the su上海千花坊
sidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tariffs t
上海千花坊品茶微信o exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global ma
rket and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.
The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “three zeros”－zero ta上海千花坊
riff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy－for non-auto industrial products.
Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agri上海千花坊品茶微信
cultural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington com
pelled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.上海千花坊
As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campaign, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the
votes from the agricultural belts helped him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has pro上海千花坊品茶微信
vided numerous subsidies for farmers to help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and othe
r economies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agricu
ltural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.
However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane ma
nufacturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose mo
re tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU go
ods, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.
