Williams’ partner for 上海千花坊bles, two-time Wimbled

on singles winner Andy Murray, won his first-round match in men’s doubles as he returned to the tournament for the first time in two years following two hip oper

ations. Marcos Baghdatis, the 2006 Australian Open runner-up and a fan favorite, played what he says will be the last上海千花坊

match of his career. Marin Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion and a 2017 Wimbledon finalist, lost, too.

None of that really mattered, in the end.

上海千花坊品茶微信Everything was rendered secondary to Nadal vs. Kyrgios.

Part of that is because a 19-year-old Kyrgios beat then-No. 1 Nadal at the All England Club in 2014.

Part of that is because they traded barbs away from the court recently in a spat that also involved Nadal’s uncle, Toni.上海千花坊品茶微信

In the leadup to this meeting, Kyrgios joked that he didn’t think “me and Rafa could go dow

n to the Dog & Fox and have a beer together,” referring to a nearby bar where Kyrgios was spotted W上海千花坊

ednesday night. The 33-year-old Nadal, meanwhile, observed that he was “too old for all this stuff.”

They could hardly be more different, something Kyrgios underline

上海千花坊品茶微信d after he lost despite producing a 58-44 advantage in winners, including 29 aces — one a se

cond serve at a tournament-high 143 mph and a pair that he hit with an underarm motion.

These two couldn’t even agree on whether Kyrgios is capable of winning major championships.

Nadal’s take? “With his talent and with his serve, he can win a Grand Slam, of course.”上海千花坊品茶微信

And Kyrgios’ self-assessment? “I know what I’m capable of. Just depe

上海千花坊nds. I’m a great tennis player, but I don’t do the other stuff. I’m not the most professional gu

y. I won’t train day in, day out. I won’t show up every day. So there’s a lot of things I need to improve on to get to that le

vel that Rafa brings. … But, no, at the moment I don’t think I can contend for a Grand Slam.”上海千花坊品茶微信

He is ranked 43rd, and hasn’t been past the quarterfinals at a majo

r. But against Nadal, he displayed boundless power, guile, touch and athleticism.

Kyrgios, his shirt collared popped just so, seemed to act at times as if it we

re more important to look cool than to play well. The between-the-leg shots, the un

necessary leaping backhands and all the rest. On the initial point of the pivotal fourth-set tiebreaker, he jumped high for a

showy overhead instead of making a safer putaway. The result? He deposited his

shot ball in the net, then rolled his eyes and chucked away a ball. Soon, the match was over.

Liangzhu Museum re上海419opens to public in Hangzhou

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.

It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所

after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of

上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.

The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.

The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419

ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad

上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”

Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419

After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.

上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led

by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419

Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje

上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信

New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.

Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien

t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.

More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o

f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.

The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult

ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s

ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.

In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.

Speaking about the music上海乌托邦’s music director Jesse

Warkentin, says: “Gershwin’s music is full of pictures, romantic and

sensory. And it takes the audience back to the city in 1945, at the end of World War II.”上海乌托邦女神会所

Sean Kelly, resident director of the musical, in Beijing, who spent two decades

上海乌托邦as principal dancer with Houston Ballet, had taught at the Beijing Dance Academy for a year in the early 1990s.

“Compared with the movie, the musical is more dramatic. And we worked hard on the casting to make

the dance dynamics come alive onstage,” Kelly says. “Chinese audiences enjoy musicals. But what e

xcites me more is that they like discussing the stories and characters with us after the shows.”上海乌托邦女神会所

A new musical marking the 70th anniversary of New China’s founding will premiere at the China National Theater for Children on July 6.

上海乌托邦Stars in the Flame tells the story of children who lost their parents during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).

It centers on the Battle of Songhu, also known as the Battle of Shanghai, which was one of the bloodiest conflicts during the war.

The work directed by Zhao Yu and composed by Wang

Gang is the opening play of the ninth China Children’s Theater Festival.上海乌托邦女神会所

“We went to Shanghai and Wuhan to learn about the history,” Zhao says.

“It was an unforgettable experience since we’ve learned many lesser-known sto

ries, especially those about the orphans who fought alongside our soldiers.”

Another children’s play, based on Danish author Hans Christian Anderse上海乌托邦

n’s classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, will also open the festival on July 6. The Chinese-Dan

ish joint production is directed by Torkild Lindebjerg and composed by Dane Jens Tolsgaard.上海乌托邦女神会所

The festival is staged annually during the summer vacation under the theme, “art changes lives”.

Will the maximum pr上海千花网ed on China take effec

Using maximum pressure to achieve its goals is a trick frequently used by some in the United States for international negotiations cal

上海千花网led “the art of trading”. Its main feature is using the means of multifaceted attacks and unlimited requirements while at the same time gaming against its opponent in m

ultiple issues that cross different fields, and then resorting to selected compromising moves to achieve the goals of core interests, to maintain hegemony through power, and to defeat the opponent t上海千花网

hrough bullying and deception. Some people in the US think that “maximum pressure” is extremely powerful, and decidedly useful when dealing with China.上海千花网

Is the “maximum pressure” measure really effective? In dealing with some small and weak countries, the US government has arbitrarily waved the big stick of sanctions and relied on its power and maximum pressure to impose its own interests. Some countries, shadowed by the powerful economic and political pressur上海千花网

e from the US, either because of a lack of overall strength or because of long-term dependence on the US, have been forced by the US to make compromises in accordance with the require

上海千花网ments of the US in negotiations, and they have to quiet down and let the US get what it wants. This is a situation that happens often and inevitably leads some people in the US to form the opi

nion that all countries, including China, will be afraid of the maximum pressure strategy and will certainly yield and surrender under their powerful pressure.

• Can trade protection make the “return of the manufacturing industry” to the US possible?

上海千花网女神会所Since the Trump administration came to power, it has put forward the proposal of “buying US goods and hiring US workers”, emphasizing the “return of the manufacturing industry”. Some people in the US

offered preferential policies to enterprises that came back to the US to set up factories. For those enterprises that moved their factories abroad, they were threatened with tariffs, forcing ente

rprises to return to the US for production. Can these trade protectionist practices really enable the US to achieve a return of the manufacturing industry?上海千花网女神会所

Whether the return of the manufacturing industry can be achieved depends first on the reasons behind the outflow of manufacturing from the US.

From the perspective of the US domestic economy, its manufacturing outflow is determined by how the local economy works.上海千花网女神会所

In the process of economic globalization, US multinational companies have transferred more and more industries to developing countries to a

chieve maximum profitability. Through industrial transfer, they reduce costs, expand markets, divert pollution, and i

ncrease the profitability of capital. At the same time, more and more capital has left the real economic sector with lo

wer profit margins, and turned to the financial sector to engage in financial speculation, leading to the hollowing out and virtualization of the US economy.

• Can economic and trade friction promote US economic prosperity?

Since 2019, the employment rate and the market value of the US stock market have remained high. In the first quarter, the actual GDP annualized quarter-on-quarter

preliminary value was 3.2 percent. Since the introduction of economic and trade friction by the US against China, the US economy seems to be

doing well. This has made some people in the US confident about constantly escalating trade friction with China. But to o

bjectively evaluate the so-called prosperity of the US economy requires a comprehensive and rational analysis.

Based on some indicators, the US economy is prospering. However, whether it will continue to prosper depends on the

state of capital accumulation. In the first quarter of 2019, the seasonally adjusted fixed-capita

l investment growth rate of the US private sector was only 1 percent, significantly lower than growth rates in 20

17 and 2018. According to US official data, US durable goods orders fell 2.1 percent from the previous month in April 2019, surp

assing the expected 2 percent decline. Shipments of core capital goods – a leading indicator of economic expansion – fell by 0.9 percent in April. Fr

om the perspective of development trends, economists are unsure about the prospects of the US economy. According to a recent survey released by the Na

tional Association for Business Economics, many economists predicted that the possibility of a recession in the US ec

onomy by the end of 2020 will almost double, mainly due to the US government’s trade protectionist policies.

rotagonist of This Life of Mine, a 100-minute monologu

With his stage adaptation of Lao She’s classic novella This Life of Mine, actor-director Fang Xu continues to celebrate the work of the renowned author, Chen Nan reports.

上海千花坊He is a low-ranking policeman, born and raised in Beijing. He has waited for years to become the head of his local police station but is replaced by a new policeman. He gets married but his wife runs away with his best friend. Soon after, he is sent to work in a small town, where he is later told that his son has died.

It’s the story of Fuhai, the protagonist of This Life of Mine, a novella by renowned Chinese writer Lao She (1899-1966), which was published in 1937.上海千花坊

The novella chronicles the life story of Fuhai which is set against the backdrop of the late Qi

ng Dynasty (1644-1911). It was adapted into a monologue of the same name by actor-director Fang上海千花坊女神会所

Xu and premiered at the Central Academy of Drama, from where Fang graduated in 2011.

Enlisting Shu Yi, the son of Lao She, as a consultant, Fang directed and performed the monologu

e himself, before embarking on a nationwide tour with around 60 shows after its debut.上海千花坊

To mark the 120th anniversary of Lao She’s birth this year, Fang decided to revive the

work for the stage on July 27 and 28 at the Capital Theater in Beijing following a three-year hiatus.

“Back in 2011, when I discussed the idea of turning This Life of Mine into a monologue, my colleagues were not really s上海千花坊女神会所

ure about the idea since it was a challenge to tell a man’s life story onstage within the space of 100 minutes all on my ow

n, “recalls the 53-year-old Beijing native. “But I was insistent and it turned out to be the right decision.上海千花坊女神会所

Fuhai tells his life story in a humorous way despite all the suffering and sorrow. He is hopeful about his life, but always ends u

p disappointed. Lao She is sympathetic toward Fuhai, as well as to the suffering of many other poor people livi

ng through those chaotic years,” Fang adds. “What makes this story interesting is that it still works today. When we look ba

ck at our own lives, we, like Fuhai, try to remain positive even when bad things happen.”

After watching Fang’s monologue at its premiere at the Central Academy of Drama in 2011, Shu Yi sa

id: “It’s one of the best adaptations of my father’s works. Fang’s adaptation is loyal to the spirit of his novella.”

Born as Shu Qingchun to a Manchu family in Beijing in 1899, Lao She is best known f

or his vivid descriptions of ordinary life, especially of poor people, which reflect the social reality of the time.

His precise depictions of local hutong life sparkle with his unique sense of humor and the raw dialect of the capital.

Lao She’s novels, including Rickshaw Boy and Four Generations Under One Roof, and his plays, such as Long Xu Gou (Dra

gon Beard Ditch) and Teahouse, have earned him the reputation as a literary master worldwide.

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 上海品茶微信s will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief econom

i 上海品茶微信st at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of th

e 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.

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP gr 上海品茶微信owth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pri

ces (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 somewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.上海品茶微信

O’Neill i 上海品茶微信s known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

“China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that aft上海品茶微信er 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the Un

ited States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China ne

上海品茶微信女神会所eds to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contr

ibutor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six ye

ars ago, will play a “hugely important” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and deliver policies, infra

structure, trade, financial and people-to-people c上海品茶微信女神会所onnectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, p

articularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added.
