Museums are throwing off the shackles of convention and time to pull in the crowds

What does it take to extinguish the fire of curiosity? A few drops of rain, a few gusts of wind or a full-blown typhoon?上海千花坊

Officials of the Shanghai Museum got an answer to those qu

estions when it threw its doors open to the public on the evening of Aug 9.

上海千花坊女神会所Typhoon Lekima, packing winds of 185 km/h, was just a few hours

from making landfall in neighboring Zhejiang province, so many people in Shanghai av

erse to bad weather may well have thought th上海千花坊at this would be a night to stay home.

In the event, more than 700 people chose to brave the rain and strong

winds that Typhoon Lekima brought to the city and visit the Shanghai Museum.

上海千花坊”We made the reservation on the museum WeChat service a week ago,” said Julie Wang, a Shanghai sc

hoolteacher who attended with her daughter and several other parents and children.

“I also thought the rain might keep a lot of people away and it would be less crowded.”上海千花坊女神会所

The parents prepared pamphlets and PowerPoint files on a tablet, teach

ing the children, all preschoolers from a single class, about the exhibition Arts of the G

上海千花坊reat Ocean, Pacific Art Collection from the Musee du quai Branly-Jacques-Chirac in Paris.

Walking among the carved oars, feather masks and wood sculptures, Wang occasionally br

ought to the children’s attention patterns, figures and interesting details in the exhibits.上海千花坊女神会所

“We often see fine arts from China and the West in the museum, but this ex

hibition is quite different and a rare opportunity to see the Pacific art,” Wang said.上海千花坊

Shanghai Museum began to extend its opening hours into th

e evening in 2017 when the exhibition A History of the World in 100 Objects

上海千花坊女神会所attracted many enthusiastic visitors, who were willing to line up for hours waiting to see it.

“We started opening in the evening on more than 20 days over three months to meet demand,” said Xia Beibei, a member

of the museum staff. Since then the museum has often held “Night of the Museum” events.

steady development and predicted the trend will continue in the second half of this year.上海419论坛品茶微信

Sunac China Holdings Ltd, one of China’s five major property developers, expected the tightening re

上海419论坛able one. It will also further intensify the differentiation and the integration of the real estate industry.

“Sales and home prices will both be impacted, since people will not be hurried to buy a house,” Sunac Chairman Sun Ho

Sunac reported net profit of 10.29 billion yuan for the first half of 2019, up 61.7 percent compared with the same period

上海419论坛品茶微信one year earlier. Revenue increased 64.9 percent to 76.84 billion yuan year-on-year.

Sun said the company will continue to strictly control land investment in the second half so

as to decrease the gearing ratio at the end of 2019 and maintain its long-term downward trend.上海419论坛

Sunac replenished its land bank from January to April when the land market was at a momentary low level. After land

prices rebounded in May, the company stopped acquiring land through land auctions.上海419论坛品茶微信

A record number of foreigners living in Japan were stripped of their residency status in 2018, data from the country’s Im

migration Services Agency showed, even as Japan is widening its doors to foreign workers.上海419论坛品茶微信

The immigration agency said on Wednesday that it revoked visas of 832 people last year, more than doubled the figure of a year earl

上海419论坛ier. Almost 70 percent of them were students and technical trainees who failed to follow visa requirements.

By nationality, half of those who lost their residency status wer

e Vietnamese. They were followed by 152 Chinese, 62 Nepalese and 43 Filipinos.上海419论坛品茶微信

Those who had their student status rescinded numbered 412, an increase from 172 in

2017. Meanwhile, 153 foreign workers had their technical trainee status revoked, up from eight in the year before.

上海419论坛The number of residency revocations was the highest since 2005 when record-keeping began. According to the Japanese Just

ice Ministry, the most affected were people on student visas who quit their studies yet continued to work in Ja

pan and technical trainees who abandoned their assigned jobs and were working elsewhere.上海419论坛

Meanwhile, there were 80 cases in which a spouse or child of a Japanese national were deprived of th

eir family member visas. Some had obtained their visas through fake marriages, the ministry said.上海419论坛

As a nation with the world’s fastest aging society coupled with a low birthrate, Japan ado

However, with an increasing number of technical interns quitting jobs due to long-criticized “grim working conditions for forei

The fresh crisis in the 上海后花园’s third-largest econ

omy was ignited by tensions within the coalition supporting Conte’s cabinet, made of

far-right, anti-immigrant League party and anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S).上海后花园女神会所

President Mattarella would play a key role in this phase, verifying with every political force hold

上海后花园ing seats in parliament whether an alternative majority could be shaped to form a new government.

Given the sensitive time of the crisis — which may bring the country to un

usual new polls in autumn, when some crucial deadlines loom — the head of state might also上海后花园女神会所

suggest forming a technocrat government, but only if parliamentary forces agreed to support it.

Among the urgent domestic affairs were the need to outline the country’s next budget, a上海后花园

nd have it passed by the Italian parliament, and preliminary by the European Union (EU), by the end of the year.

Another key budget-related priority was to avoid a possible value-added tax (VAT) hike.上海后花园

For most purchases in fact, Italy’s VAT is at 22 percent; but it would automatically rise to 25.2 percent on Jan 1, if the coun

上海后花园女神会所try did not find new revenue resources worth 23 billion euros ($25.5 billion) with the next budgetary plan.

Mattarella’s talks with parties’ leaders will continue through Th

ursday afternoon, according to the official schedule unveiled by the president’s office.

If such consultations do not deliver any political solution, the president wi上海后花园

ll have to dissolve the parliament, and call snap elections in a range of 45 to 70 days.

Meanwhile, major parties began defining their own position in the crisis.

A possible deal between the M5S — which holds the largest number of seats in both lower house and se上海后花园女神会所

nate — and center-left opposition Democratic Party (PD) was under the scrutiny of political analysts and media.

The two parties have harshly attacked each other in latest years, but their joining forces now could上海后花园

produce a majority in parliament — with the help of minor allies — cutting anti-immigrant League out.

上海后花园女神会所On Wednesday, the PD leadership approved a resolution opening to possible n

egotiations with the M5S, but only on condition that five program points were respected, including “a loyal EU me

mbership… a change in the country’s (tough) migration policies, and a major shift in social and economic recipes.”

The central bank annou上海千花网sures to reform the

e interest rate regime on Saturday. It decided to use the loan prime rate (LPR), the price of loans banks offer to their best cli

ents, as a new reference for bank loans, instead of the existing one-year benchmark lending rate.上海千花网

The new LPR was reported for the first time on Tuesday at 4.25 percent for one-year loans, low

上海千花网女神会所er than the 4.35 percent one-year benchmark lending rate which has been unchanged since August 2015. The LP

R for five-year loans was at 4.85 percent, according to the National Interbank Funding Center.

Many analysts have seen the new measure as an alternativ上海千花网女神会所

e way of cutting overall interest rates. In response, central bank officials said the reform itself

cannot replace the monetary policy or other policies, but it can improve the effectiveness of monetary policy.

Sun Guofeng, head of the central bank’s Monetary Policy Department, said the market-oriented inte上海千花网女神会所

rest rate reform will not have a direct impact on the renminbi exchange rate. “The market rates are directly

上海千花网related to the exchange rate, but this reform is not involved with changes of market rates.”

He said the current interest rate spread between China and the United States “is within a comfortable zone”.

While many developed countries use monetary easing to spur econ上海千花网女神会所

omic growth, China is the only country among major economies to retain a normal mone

上海千花网tary policy, and the valuation of yuan-denominated assets is still at a relatively lower level. All of these factors can hel

p to maintain the renminbi exchange rate at a stable and adaptive level, Sun added.

Even under the new scheme, the interest rate level for mortgage loans will not decline, as the government will not ease the rea上海千花网女神会所

l estate control policy nor use real estate as a tool to stimulate short-term economic growth, said

Liu, who disclosed that the interest rate policy for personal mortgages will be revealed in several days.

During an excavatio上海千花网 wooden slip was une

earthed from a well at a 2,200-year-old relic site in the mountainous

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所

rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.

The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d

上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.

The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on

e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所

It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be

cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy

上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn

asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.

After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

ow sharing some of their findings about the Qin era with a display of some 175 slips at A Tale of A S

mall Town, an exhibition at the National Museum of China in Beijing that runs through Sept 6.上海千花网

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

n Slips Museum near the relic site. Bamboo and wooden slips were the primary上海千花网女神会所

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).

Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网

8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep

itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所

own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.

Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

g that of the discovery of Qin’s Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in 1974.

ntributed 30 percent of its revenue. The company said it released 10 games in the second quarter.上海419论坛女神会所

“Although we thought our recently revised estimates would be low enough, second quarter of 2019 topline growth on

上海419论坛ce again missed both our and the Street’s expectations,” said Alicia Yap, an analyst of Citigroup Global Markets Asia, wh

ich maintained a Buy Rating on Tencent shares after the results were published.

“We expect gaming revenue to re-accelerate starting from the second q上海419论坛女神会所

uarter onward,” David Dai, a Hong Kong-based analyst at research and broke

rage firm Bernstein, told Bloomberg News, adding this would also drive a surge in overall revenues.

Tencent’s performance is actually in line with the bigger picture for other digital outfits.上海419论坛

Digital ad spending in the world’s second-largest economy is

expected to hit $79.82 billion in 2019, growing 22 percent from the year before, said eM上海419论坛女神会所

arketer. But the figure represents a reduction from the 28 percent growth seen last year.

The slower growth in economy combined with the prolific ad inventory at rival Bytedan

上海419论坛ce will weigh on marketing demand and ads, said a research note from Citic Securities.

“But given Tencent’s abundant share in online traffic (over

40 percent) and relatively low monetization rate of the ad上海419论坛女神会所

business in China, the current stalemate wouldn’t last too long,” the Citic report said.

On a positive note, the new revenue category of “FinTech and Business Services” set up this ye

ar that includes payment and cloud services churned out 22.9 billion yuan, up 37 percent on co上海419论坛

mparable business last year. The sector was fueled by rapid growth in commercial payment volumes.

“We have learned from our industry contacts that Te上海419论坛女神会所

by phasing out/reducing subsidies,” Nomura Securities said in its own research note.
