Multiple local governments including those of Handan in Hebei province, Jinan in Shand
上海会所品茶微信ong province, and Tianjin have banned the so-called Beijing Bikini－which refers to men who roll up their sh
irts or T-shirts to expose their bellies in public places in summer. Aimed at promoting civilized behavior, the ban is a tim
ely move as the “Beijing Bikini” is considered offensive, especially by women.上海会所
Yet the good intentions of the local governments cons
上海会所titute only the first step toward promoting civilized behavior, par
ticularly in public places. So the authorities should consider all possible options
and devise an appropriate plan to ensure the ban on Beijing Bikini is actually implemented.上海会所品茶微信
In this regard, Handan’s move offers some food for thought, as civic inspectors in Hanshan district gift a T-shirt to men in B上海会所
eijing Bikini to cover themselves up. This method of correcting uncivilized behavior in a c
ivilized way reflects proper social management and sends a goodwill signal to the people in general.
上海会所品茶微信However, it is necessary to make certain facts clear, and adopt the most appropriate m
ethods to deal with the issue. For instance, men in Beijing Bikini cannot be held guilty of committing an of
fense. At most, their behavior may be deemed uncivilized. In sociological terms, the
act of a man wearing nothing above the waist could be defined as minor transgression.

More convenient immigration policies will be adopted nationwide starting Aug 1 that make it easier for foreig

The 12 new policies aim to attract foreign talent, outstanding youths and overseas Chinese to inn

Their extension will allow a wider range of people across the country to apply for permanent residency, long-term visas and residence p

上海419The new policies add three types of people to those eligible for permanent residency.
The first category covers high-level foreign talent, inclu

The second applies to foreigners working in China. They need to have wor上海419品茶微信

The third category refers to overseas Chinese who have a doctoral de上海419品茶微信

media accuse China of violating human rights in Xinjiang not because they care for the people of the region but because they want to use hu

Just as Deng Xiaoping said, some Western countries use issues su

If governments and people across the world want to safeguard huma

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t
hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e
nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:
State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co
mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.
After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits
as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.
Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel
ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.
Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo
wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub
sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.
Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev
er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this
year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account
s for less than 10 percent of the planned total. Only four provinces had started the job.
There are vested interests behind this. For example, certain local government

Sunday in the provincial capital of Guangzhou, Guangdong‘s 5G companies — Hu

“As part of booming technologies, the 5G will be used more in the internet of things

In Guangzhou’s Huangpu district, 5G has already been implemented in commercial secto

A nationwide immigration enforcement operation targeting people who are in the United S

The operation is similar to ones conducted regularly since 2003 that often produce hundreds of arrests. It is slightly unusual

Shui Lan, a conductor who has played Zhou’s compositions several times, praises Zhou’s work as being colorful and full of imagination.

Zhou Long attributed his knowledge of folk music to his experience of studying at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing上海品茶微信

上海品茶微信”These traditional elements of Chinese culture and folk music are fundamental and inseparable parts of my composition. We

Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is

Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha

上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op

The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所
oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.
The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb
上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.
Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所
g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.
Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d
uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.
After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for
ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f
rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.
