which Iran already seems to have taken, and engage in talks, talks in which the US should not ask for too much.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

sed of involvement in a drug-related case in Yantai, a coastal city in Shandong province.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛

volving foreign students is under investigation and one of the people involved in the case is a Canadian citizen.

上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian

gsu province, where a police crackdown resulted in the arrest of 19 people, including 16 foreigners.

He said public security authorities had made consular notificati上海419论坛

ons to relevant embassies in a timely manner and will arrange consular visits.

China will safeguard the legitimate rights of the parties concerned in accordance with law, Geng added.

The new case came as tensions continue in Sino-Canadian上海419论坛品茶微信

relations, sparked last year by the detention of Huawei’s chief financial offic

er, Meng Wanzhou, in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition.

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled

to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419

Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

Titled Thinking of the Se上海夜生活ades of History at My

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno

wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信

About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin

上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year

posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.

According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信

mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be

上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.

The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in

2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信

14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.

上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi

s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.

“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信

1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.

上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint

ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma

o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信

Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin

上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu

rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信

ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col

上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.

“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp

ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.

“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th

e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le

ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”

pital successfully transpl娱乐地图from baby into wom

Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys

from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所

The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.

娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos

ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.

Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所

The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely

娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.

Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图

splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.

娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.

Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are

very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图

an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.

娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do

ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur

inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di

fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图

“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.

Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所

dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.

The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图

de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie

娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.

In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit

h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.

上海品茶微信女神会所A nationwide wave of arrests of immigrants facing deporta

tion will commence over the weekend, US President Donald Trump said on Friday, confi

rming that the plan, intended to discourage a surge of Central American migrants, was on track after a delay.

The operation is expected to target hundreds of families in 10 cities that have recentl上海品茶微信女神会所

y been ordered deported by an immigration court but have not yet left the country.

上海品茶微信Trump revealed the operation on Twitter last month and then

postponed it. It is unusual for the government to announce deportation operations ahead of time.

“People are coming into this country illegally, we are taking them out legally,” Trump tol上海品茶微信女神会所

d reporters on Friday, calling it a “major operation” that would mainly focus on removing criminals.

In a typical week, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests thousands of immigrants who are staying in t

上海品茶微信he country illegally, according to government data. Most of those arrests are made without any advance publicity.

Immigrant advocates have said advance word of the weekend raids could help some of those targeted to evade arrest.

But the president, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said he wa上海品茶微信女神会所

s not concerned that the advance notice could help targeted immigrants evade arrest.

“If the word gets out, it gets out,” he said.

Since Trump first spoke of the plan, a number of city mayors, nearly上海品茶微信

all Democrats, have repeated their long-standing policies of not cooperating with ICE

officials on deportations and have advertised helplines people can call to understand their rights.上海品茶微信女神会所

Democratic lawmakers, among others, have also sought to inform immigrants of their rights, telling them not to open their door

for ICE unless agents present a court-issued warrant, and not to say or sign anything before speaking with a lawyer.

上海会所Following a year’s treatment, the baby’s kidneys have grown to the size of an adult’s and function healthily.

China’s prospects for copi上海千花坊anctions – whic

 the US administration is likely to use more often – are not so bright. Last month, a US judge found three large Ch

inese banks in contempt of court for refusing to produce evidence for an investigation into violations of sanctions aga上海千花坊

inst the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The ruling ignores the fact that, according to Chinese law, any request for ba

上海千花坊品茶微信nking records should be handled in accordance with the US-China mutual legal assistance agreement.

Chinese financial institutions thus need to prepare for more troubles, including the risk of being blacklisted – that is, deprived of the right to u

se the US dollar and important services, such as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication financial m上海千花坊

essaging service and the Clearing House Interbank Payments System. It is a punishment few companies can survive.

上海千花坊品茶微信Already, one Chinese bank has been included on the Correspondent Account or Payable-Through Acc

ount Sanctions list, meaning that it cannot open correspondent or payable-through accounts in the US.

Make more efforts to internationalize yuan上海千花坊

The Chinese government has few options here, but it can step up legislative efforts to protect Chinese banks’ interests, while encour

上海千花坊品茶微信aging Chinese financial institutions to treat compliance with US financial regulations with the utmost c

are. It should also continue working to internationalize the yuan, as there is still a long way to go on this front.

China remains committed to its 40-year-old process of reform and opening-up. Today, that process must focus on redoub

ling efforts to strengthen intellectual property rights protection, adhering to competitive neutrality and de上海千花坊品茶微信

fending multilateralism. But following through on this commitment will require China to find ways to manage escalating ten

上海千花坊sions with the US and avoid a costly – and potentially devastating – reconfiguration of the global economy.

The author, a former president of the China Society of World Econo

mics and director of the Institute of World Economics and Politics at the Chinese Aca上海千花坊品茶微信

Already, opposition t上海会所gton-triggered tra

 war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu

上海会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.

The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment

. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp上海会所女神会所

rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as

Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for

上海会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i

ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.上海会所女神会所

Essential to improve investment environment

上海会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u

p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi

ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p上海会所

roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.

But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count

上海会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co

mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r

emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm

artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.上海会所女神会所

China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain

committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com上海会所

panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d

上海会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo

rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.

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”.

From July 6 to Aug 11, 57 theatrical productions from 14 countries, including the United

States, Japan and Russia, will stage 191 performances at the China National Theater for Children.
