The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc

上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit

ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe

ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.

A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信

l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.

Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛

e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me

tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.

上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua

lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit

beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛

US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.

上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready

to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count

ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛

“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.

He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr

essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信

owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.

Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w

hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信

hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

Even if such a coalition上海419论坛ed, the US should realize

ar with Iran. It hopes that its sanctions and maximum pressure will finally make Iran give in.

But that is very unlikely given the way Iran has responded to wh

at the US has done. The best solution to the current stand-off is for both sides to take a step back,上海419论坛

which Iran already seems to have taken, and engage in talks, talks in which the US should not ask for too much.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

sed of involvement in a drug-related case in Yantai, a coastal city in Shandong province.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛

volving foreign students is under investigation and one of the people involved in the case is a Canadian citizen.

上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian

gsu province, where a police crackdown resulted in the arrest of 19 people, including 16 foreigners.

He said public security authorities had made consular notificati上海419论坛

ons to relevant embassies in a timely manner and will arrange consular visits.

China will safeguard the legitimate rights of the parties concerned in accordance with law, Geng added.

The new case came as tensions continue in Sino-Canadian上海419论坛品茶微信

relations, sparked last year by the detention of Huawei’s chief financial offic

er, Meng Wanzhou, in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition.

White cannot be calle上海419论坛ack in XinjiangBaisha L

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma

n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛

r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,

上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.

This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth

er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛

man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people

上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.

As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji

ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所

cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.

vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin

jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所

ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.

上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre

judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛

Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of

supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛

There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive

behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li

nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th

e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one

of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

Trade talks resum 上海419论坛 wellNew York Stoc

US markets rallied and closed in positive territory Monday on news that Chinese President Xi Ji

 上海419论坛nping and his US counterpart Donald Trump will resume negotiations to resolve the ongoing trade dispute.

Trump said talks are “back on track” and held off on his threat to impose tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods. Trump 上海419论坛

said China will buy “a tremendous amount” of US food and agriculture exports while bilateral negotiations are ongoing.

The S&P 500 reached 2,977.86 in midday trading, all all-time high, bef

ore closing at 2964.33, up 22.57 points. Nevertheless, the long-term outlook for the market rema 上海419论坛

ins unclear as US manufacturing dipped close to a three-year low in June amid a worldwide economic slowdown.

“The devil is always in the details,” Usha Haley, professor of manageme

nt at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “I don’t know if Trump is the great m

 上海419论坛品茶微信ediator. But everyone gave a huge sigh of relief that talks have resumed between the US and China.”

Trump eased export sanctions on Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, boosting semiconductor stocks, including Micron Tech

nology, Skyworks Solutions, Qualcomm and Broadcom — and sparking the possibility of a revolt among some Republicans.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a strong Trump supporter, told NBC’s Face the Nation on Sund 上海419论坛品茶微信

ay that he’s reviewing Trump’s action and noted, “It’s clearly a concession. There’ll be a lot of pu

shback if this is a major concession. If it’s a minor concession, I think it’s part of the overall deal.”

Neither side sai 上海419论坛品茶微信d when negotiations would resume or established a schedule for completing a deal.

Goldman Sachs called Trump’s decision to ease export sanctions on Huawei a “potential unexpected market friendly outcome”。

Asked at the G20 meeting in Japan if he had removed Huawei from the Entity List that controls the export of technology th

at could compromise US national security, Trump said, “No, not at all” and “We are talking about that” before telling re

porters, “I don’t want to talk about it now, we are looking at it very carefully. Huawei is very much in play.”

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

Focusing largely on standards and regulations, both crucial to a firm’s generic value chain, the report found however that when authorities take steps to reduce compliance costs, the competitiveness of SMEs is greatly improved.

It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.

Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation

and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.

The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”

In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec

tor, while metal and basic manufacturing represent 28.4 percent of Eastern Europe and Central Asia’s unexploited export potential.

In China, ITC estimated that telephone sets have an unrealized export potential of more than $100 billion, while other prod

bike protest, Sau上海419论坛品茶微信di authorities arrested Qureiris, then just 13 years old. He was traveling with his fami

At the time, he was considered by lawyers and activists to be the youngest known political prisoner in Saudi Arabia.

Now, at the age of 18, Qureiris is facing the death penalty after being

held for almost four years in pre-trial detention, CNN has learned.n April, Saudi Arabia anno

unced it had executed 37 men who, according to rights group Reprieve, were mostly from the kingdom’s Shia minor

Qureiris was 10 years old when he committed at least one of those alleged crimes in his charge sheet, CNN has learn
