In addition to The Bravest, many films based on real events have achieved very good box-office results, such as Dying to Sur

arned great results at the box office and high points on Douban, China’s most popular film review site. Let’s take a look.上海龙凤419

Younger generations上海龙凤419ve shows in demand

Tang Yuqing, 19, a college student in Beijing, says she watches ballet, dr

上海龙凤419ama or musicals about five times a month. Each ticket costs her from 100 to 300 yuan. Her f

avorites include French musical Mozart-L’opera Rock and the play adapted from Eileen Chang’s novel The Golden Cangue.上海龙凤419

“Watching live performances gives a more immersive experience than TV or the internet. Observing the details of ons

tage performances is fun. And it makes me feel relaxed by becoming part of the audience atmosphere,” she says, adding t

上海龙凤419hat she thinks it’s a waste not to visit a theater when Beijing provides much more resources than her hometown.

Tang also says part of the reason for students like her who enjoy shows

is that they have more free time and are yet to shoulder the pressures of life.上海龙凤419

Wu Di, 22, who studies anthropology in London, says she now watches musicals about twice a month. Each ticket costs ab

out 20 to 30 pounds ($24 to $36) on discount. At first she used to follow actors or scripts that she liked when sel

上海龙凤419女神会所ecting plays. Now, her interest has grown and she has watched nearly 20 plays i

n the city, including Les Miserables, The Phantom Of the Opera and Notre-Dame de Paris.

“It’s kind of local life to watch live performances, when over 100 plays will be performe上海龙凤419

d every night,” she says. “The songs are pleasing to hear. The stage is beautifully decorated. The stories convey somet

hing good about humanity. It’s also a social activity for me and my friends to watch and discuss together.”

上海龙凤419女神会所She says she often gets information through advertisements on the subway and Sina Weibo.

According to the report, in 2017, males were about 39 percent of the audience. Its proportion grew 5 percentage points last year.上海龙凤419

Song Yuran, 24, an animation designer in Beijing, spent two weeks in London last year to watch plays, with tickets costing ab

上海龙凤419女神会所out 8,000 yuan. One of the plays, Hamilton, inspired him. “The body moves and eye contact between the actors

and the audience, as well as the emotions aroused at the theater, were unforgettable.”

He adds: “At another play, an actress was singing alone onstage. At th

e crux of that song, a beam of light came across her and hit the audience.”

It goes without saying t上海龙凤419 of both signatori

ies from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the wo

上海龙凤419品茶微信rld order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the US’ latest one

in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US disp

ensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mechanism上海龙凤419

s, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.

上海龙凤419品茶微信Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilateral relations. The actions of the US a

nd Russia have further worsened their relations following their face-off over the Ukraine crisis and the S

yrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both sides in th上海龙凤419

e Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means their ta

ctical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.

上海龙凤419品茶微信Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarmam

ent process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev上海龙凤419

elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now

上海龙凤419品茶微信deploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuel

ling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major

powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.上海龙凤419

What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discu

garding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving international

relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and therefore re

The conventional bulb 上海龙凤419et is indeed declining, but

we are declining less than the market. Instead we are increasing our market share, so it’s still quite a sizable

上海龙凤419女神会所business for us. We are keeping our profitability high and the cash flow is still good. The other businesses are growing in a co

mplicated market because the Chinese economy is not (growing) the same as before, and neither is Europe. The rest of t

What’s your take on the current global economic uncertainty especially in US-China trade? How will this affect your company’s business?

上海龙凤419女神会所The world has become a much more complex place to do business. Although the trade friction hasn’t had a real impact on us

yet, we have of course paid attention to the two big superpowers in the world that not only have an impact on bila

teral relationships, but also worldwide. We believe in free markets, and global market uncertainty is det上海龙凤419女神会所

rimental to business activities. We think the world is global, technology is global, and knowledge is global. We will cont

i上海龙凤419女神会所nue to invest quite a lot worldwide, and of course in China. We have made two acquisitions, LiteMagic and WiZ. We con

tinue to invest here because we believe in the potential of the Chinese economy.

You had a big presence during last year’s CIIE. What about this year?上海龙凤419

We plan to make our exhibition space 50 percent bigger at about 300 square meters. Meanwhile, we wil

上海龙凤419女神会所l showcase our latest innovations, including Li-Fi to Li-Fi Generation 2, Zigbee based Hue, Wi-Fi-based

WiZ, horticulture lighting, animal lighting, 3D printing and other new applications.

Last time we talked about Li-Fia two-way, high-speed wireless technology similar to Wi-Fi, which uses light waves instead of radi

o waves to transmit data. Signify’s Li-Fi products could provide a broadband internet connection through light waves wi

thout compromising lighting quality. But it was the beginning of it. Now we can say that we have four pilots in China for Li-Fi – one

with the China Academy of Building Research, where they’re testing and improving the capacity of that technology. So, we’ve moved from prese

nting the technology to application, finding customers and developing pilots. So this is the big change from last time.

Do you have any plans especially in the Yangtze River Delta region?

We don’t only look at our investment from a geographic perspective. We have invested in research and development and China is ho

me to the second biggest R&D center that we have. We develop not only for China but also for the world. It’s mostly in

Shanghai but also in Shenzhen. With that company, we are “potentializing” it, which is increasing sales in China, but

also helping the products that company has worldwide. We believe in investment, and we’re going to invest more.

entral banks’ buying drives global gold demand grow

Net gold purc上海龙凤419品茶微信hases by central banks saw a year-on-year increase of 68 percent to 145.5 tonnes in the first qu

arter of 2019, driving global gold demand growth, according to a report issued by the World Gold Council (WGC).

During the last four quarters, central banks’ gold buying reached a record high of 715.7 tonnes.

In Q1 of 2019, global gold demand stood at 1,053.3 tonnes, up 7 percent year-on-year, according to the report.

Economic uncertainty continued to weigh heavy on reserve managers’ minds. Diversifica

tion and a desire for safe, liquid assets were the main drivers of gold buying, the WGC report said.

As of April 2019, the global official gold reserves totaled 34,023.87 tonnes, of which the eur

ozone (including the European Central Bank) held 10,778.5 tonnes. The central banks of the emerg

ing market continued to maintain a steady pace to accumulate gold reserves, the report said.
