The European Council nominates the new European Commission presid

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

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

ropean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the Euro上海贵族宝贝品茶微信

pean Free Alliance to support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

上海贵族宝贝品茶微信As for von der Leyen’s policy focus, it is apparent she would intensify European security cooperation and military construc

tion, as well as try to consolidate the union in order to increase the EU’s influence in the international arena.

Shanghai’s three later-上海千花坊advantagesAfter en

ntering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities

上海千花坊in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.

(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”

上海千花坊女神会所Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.

These systems were first carried out from the perspective of the circular economy. Shangh

ai, as a catcher, started to classify and recycle municipal garbage through comprehensive integration.上海千花坊

Today garbage in Shanghai is classified into four categories: harmful; recyclable; organic; and other.

上海千花坊女神会所This integrates waste recycling, composting, incineration and landfills, and has the advantage of overtaking in be

nds. Shanghai for example provides a fixed subsidy for the construction of wet garbage resource facilities.

(2) Shanghai has the advantage of “backward force”上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai’s waste treatment sets the maximum capacity of landfill and incineration fa

上海千花坊cilities, reverses the front-end classification collection and resource utilization, and reduces quantity at the source.

The city encourages classification by disposing

of organic garbage for free and calculating the cost of other garbage disposal.上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai also promotes quality control and both rewards and

上海千花坊punishes district treatment facilities through its garbage treatment fee system.

(3) Shanghai has the advantage of “governance orientation”上海千花坊女神会所

Shanghai residents participate in making waste classification a bottom-up action.

Enterprises strengthen market-oriented changes and fulfill their corporate social responsibility.

yeaste.cc

After more than 上海419′ work, Shanghai can take the

d in incorporating garbage classification into the rule of law.

 上海419品茶微信The regulations for example say that people can be fined up to 2,00

0 yuan for mixed garbage and 50,000 yuan for mixed transportation by units.

The regulations also hold that disposable cups and utensils cannot be used in the Shanghai Party internal office and  上海419government organs.

Hotels will no longer provide disposable household necessities or they’ll

 上海419品茶微信be fined at least 500 yuan and less than 5,000 yuan. Caterers cannot provide disposable tab

leware – if they do and fail to make corrections within a time limit, they will be fined the same amount. 上海419

Editor’s note: Japan has restricted the exports of three highly specialized products needed to make sem

 上海419品茶微信iconductors, smartphones and computers to the Republic of Korea, which could seriously hurt ROK enter

prises such as electronics giants Samsung and SK Hynix. At a meeting of the Council on Trade in Goods of the Wo

rld Trade Organization last week, the ROK criticized Japan’s move, saying it’s unjustified. What will be the impact of the Tokyo-Seoul spat on the regional eco

nomy and stability? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Liu Jianna. Excerpts follow: 上海419品茶微信

Tokyo vents anger against ROK moves

 上海419Japan has restricted the exports of the three products to the ROK mainly to vent its anger agai

nst the ROK Supreme Court’s ruling last year that Japanese companies must compensate Koreans forced

to work in mines and factories and as “comfort women” before and during World War II, ROK President Moon Jae-in’s 上海419品茶微信

hard-line policy toward Tokyo, and the two countries’ conflicting policies on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.

Besides, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to portray himself as

 上海419a strong leader who brooks no nonsense so his ruling Liberal Democratic Party, along with

its coalition partner Komeito, can win two-thirds of the seats in the upper house election on Sunday. To some exte

nt, Japan also intends to show the United States that it will respond aggressively to any moves it considers harm 上海419品茶微信

ful to the country, so that the US stops coercing Japan to compromise its economic interests.

On one side of the exhibition wall, a large snake spear model, measuring more than 3 meters in length, is mounted. Accor

上海419论坛品茶微信ding to the exhibition, snake spears were used in the southwestern region of China’s Yunnan province in the second cent

ury BC, where actual snake spears are often found at historical sites. With the deification of Zhang Fei, a famous military co

Adding a little local flavor, the exhibition also displays the original manuscript of the Three Kingdoms m

上海419论坛anga comic by Japanese cartoonist Mitsuteru Yokoyama, a drawing for die-hard fans of the cartoon art form.

Dressed in a T-shirt embroidered with a map of the Three Kingdoms, Torahiko Hara, a fan

上海419论坛The exhibition is the largest China-themed display ever held by the Tokyo National Museum, with 85 percent of the exhi

bits on display in Japan for the first time, says Zeniya Masami, executive director of the museum.

Zhou Ming, deputy director of Art Exhibitions China, says he believes the exhi上海419论坛

bition would arouse a new enthusiasm among the Japanese people for the c

ulture of the Three Kingdoms and help them gain a deeper understanding of the period’s history.

上海419论坛品茶微信According to the exhibition, the Three Kingdoms period began a

round 1,800 years ago amid the chaos of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The events of this time, alo

They provided the inspiration for numerous works of poetry, literature and painting, leadin

Up until now, the stories of the Three Kingdoms have been continuously developed in various forms in Japan, including上海419论坛品茶微信

novels, comics, puppet shows and games, with many characters of the Three Kingdoms familiar to the Japanese people.

In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington

上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef

fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.

Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊

ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.

上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash

ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.

This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊

t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.

上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe

rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.

Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊

But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h

is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所

ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos

上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.

Despite the moderating GDP growth, activities rebounded visibly in June, with almost all the growth indicators beating expe

上海龙凤419The PBOC adopted targeted RRR reduction twice this year to support priv

ump administration mov上海后花园p more immigrants

The Trump administration on Monday moved to bar almost all immigrants from appl

ying for asylum at the country’s southern border, requiring them to first pursue safe上海后花园女神会所

haven in a third country through which they had traveled on the way to the United States.

上海后花园The Department of Homeland Security, in a statement issued with the Departme

nt of Justice, said the interim rule would set a “new bar” for immigrants “by

placing further restrictions or limitations on eligibility for aliens who seek asylum in the United States.”

The American Civil Liberties Union called the new rule “patently unlawful” and vowed to file a lawsuit.上海后花园女神会所

The rule would make it all but impossible for applicants seeking p

rotection from persecution unless they first apply for asylum in “third count

上海后花园ry” such as Mexico or Guatemala, through which they traveled en route to the United States.

It was just short of a “nuclear option, close to something like shutti

ng down the border,” said Jessica Vaughan from the Center上海后花园女神会所

for Immigration Studies, which supports increased immigration restrictions.

上海后花园uatemala, which both sends migrants the United States and receives Hondurans and Salvadorans passing through, said on Sunday it wo

uld postpone President Jimmy Morales’ visit to Washington to discuss Guatemala’s potential designati

on as a “safe third country” for asylum seekers, stressing it had no plans to sign such an agreement.上海后花园

The proposed changes, set to become official on Tuesday, represent the latest effort by the Trump administration to c

rack down on immigration, the signature issue that helped propel Trump to the Wh上海后花园女神会所

ite House in the 2016 election and one already figuring prominently in the 2020 campaign.

The change 上海后花园would also place an even higher burden on Mexico, w

hich has been somewhat cooperative with US efforts to slow Central American immigration.

Mexico pushed back on Monday, saying asylum-seekers上海后花园女神会所

rejected by the United States should have to go back to their home countries, not Mexico.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcel Ebrard said the new US rule would not unila上海后花园女神会所

terally convert Mexico into a designated “safe third country,” a status that would

oblige it to offer asylum to those who entered its territory en route to the United States.
