The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is expected to at
tract a further influx of dynamic investment and professionals – thanks to closer coop
上海夜生活女神会所eration just announced between the Lion city and the southern Chinese coastal province of Guangdong.
Officials said SSGKC’s importance continues to grow, and the iconic project for Sino上海夜生活
-Singaporean collaboration since 2010 will soon be elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.
上海夜生活女神会所Situated at the heart of Pearl River Delta Region and in a massive greenfield site in the s
outhern city of Guangzhou, SSGKC is widely seen as a model and catalyst for the economic transformation and the ind
ustrial upgrade of the province as a global producer of cheaper goods to high-end and cutting-edge production.上海夜生活
At a total site area of 123 square kilometers, it is being developed in a series of phases over the 15-20 years starting from 2010.
上海夜生活女神会所The officials added that both the Chinese and Singaporean governments have agreed
to deepen their collaboration in terms of scientific innovation, intellectual property rights, financial se
rvices, personnel exchanges, industrial development and community management.上海夜生活
Part of their collaborative efforts, the Sino-Singapore Knowledge Forum, was held in Singapore for the first time on Friday.
上海夜生活女神会所The event was a strategic and SSGKC-hosted summit promoting di

apore on hot-button topics concerning the practices of bilateral collaboration.上海夜生活女神会所
On the same day in Singapore, memorandums of understanding and strategic cooperation agreements were signe
d at the annual meeting of the Singapore-Guangdong Collaboration Council, an official body co-chaired by Ma上海夜生活

In February, Washington suspended its participation in the treat
上海夜生活y, saying it would quit the deal on Aug 2 if Russia does not return to compliance.
Moscow denied the allegation it violated the treaty and a
ccused Washington of breaking the accord, which the US likewise denied.上海夜生活
On July 3, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill that suspends the country’s par
上海夜生活女神会所ticipation in the treaty. The decree was passed by the Russian parliament last month.
The INF Treaty, which was signed by US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, has been c
onsidered a landmark arms control agreement. It bans Russia and the US from possessing, producing or c上海夜生活
onducting test flights of ground-launched cruise missiles and ballistic missiles
with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. The treaty caps the number of deployed warheads at 1,550 for each side.上海夜生活女神会所
In an article in Arms Control Today, a monthly magazine on nonprolif
eration and global security, Daryl G. Kimball, executive director of the US-based Arms Cont上海夜生活
rol Association, suggested that the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as New START, be extended for f
ive years in order “to provide a foundation for a more ambitious successor agreement”.
上海夜生活女神会所”Without New START, there would be no legally binding, verifiable limits on the US or Ru
ssian nuclear arsenals for the first time in nearly half a century,” Kimball said.
New START was signed by Russia and the US in 2010 and took effect in 20
11. It replaced the 1991 START I treaty, which expired in 2009, and superseded the 2002
Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, which was terminated when New START took effect.
New START limits the US and Russia to 1,550 deployed warheads on 700 deployed delivery vehicles for long-range, strategic n
uclear warheads. Both sides have reduced their forces, meeting the mandated limits in February last year. If Mosco
w and Washington don’t come to an agreement on an extension, the agreement could die in 2021.
Major convenience stores in Japan announced on Tuesday that the
y will stop selling pornographic magazines in an effort to create a “comfortable enviro上海夜生活
nment” before the country plays host to international sports events, such as the 2020 Olympics.
上海夜生活品茶微信7-Eleven Japan Co, Lawson Inc and FamilyMart Co, the top three convenience store chain operators, have all dec
ided to end the sale of adult publications and manga comics by the end of August, citing concerns over har
ming the country’s image before the 2019 Rugby World Cup and next year’s Tokyo Olympics.上海夜生活
The companies said they hope the decision will create a more w
上海夜生活品茶微信elcoming environment for women and children and will avoid giving off a bad impression o
f the country as Japan prepares for a flood of foreign visitors during the sports events.
“In the past, 7-Eleven was mostly used by male customers to buy beverages and fast foo上海夜生活
d, and our product assortment was designed accordingly,” the chain told Reuters.
上海夜生活”However, as the role and usage of 7-Eleven stores has changed in recent years, 7-Eleven beca

“We also considered the increasing number of foreign custom
ers during the upcoming Rugby World Cup and the Olympics,” the chain said.
The move will not have a major economic impact on the chain, as adult magazines account for less than上海夜生活
1 percent of total sales at the roughly 20,000 7-Eleven stores across Japan, a spokesperson said.
According to Lawson, the company had already stopped selling such magazines at outlets in Okinaw上海夜生活品茶微信、

FamilyMart reported that 2,000 of its 16,000 franchises had already stopped selling adult magazines.

The other draft regulation published on the same day is aimed at forming standards for nursery institutions.
A driver, who last year plowed his car into students crossing the road, killing six and inj
上海夜生活品茶微信uring 20, was sentenced to death by a court in Northeast China’s Liaoning province on Tuesday.
The provincial Huludao Intermediate People’s Court publicly annou
nced the death penalty to Han Jihua at 2 pm on Tuesday, saying his behavior resulted in th上海夜生活品茶微信
e crime of endangering public security with a dangerous method under the Criminal Law.
The court also said Han’s criminal act of driving into a group of students was premedita上海夜生活
ted, planned as a reaction to trivial problems, such as marital conflict and financial troubles.
The proposed standards require more attention to be paid to children of migrant workers in urban areas.上海夜生活品茶微信
Each institution should set up separate facilities for dining, sleeping, leisure activities, storage as well as restrooms. T
he average living space per capita at each institution should be no less than 3 square meters for each child.
According to the standards, a nursery should receive 150 children at most and have at least one security staff member on duty.

Thanks to e-commerce, in which McCormick believed China “is well ahead of the world”, consu
上海夜生活品茶微信mers are looking at tangible qualities rather than the brand per se when placing jewelry orders.
“That’s really a game changer. With Chinese consumers becoming more pragmatic, it’s eas

While digital space is far from being the main norm for shopping diamonds, a lot of Chinese would go online to look for infor上海夜生活

US administration’s economic policy has rightly focused on the need to retain jobs for working-class people in the US. And, Ch
ina’s companies that export to the US also largely now employ less-skilled working-class people. However, neither the
US nor China can expect to keep, much less get back, low-wage, low-skilled manufacturing jobs.
Many people have the impression that Chinese goods are dominant in US markets. That is true only in a few highly compe

market in such items as umbrellas, toys, prepared feathers, footwear, straw products, and bedding.
