It should not come as a surprise that more than 300,000 Hong Kong residents, from all w
alks of life and from different nationalities, participated in a rally convened by over 70 civic leaders on Saturday.上海楼凤品茶微信
That the organizers represented the business sector, student groups, civic organizati
上海楼凤品茶微信ons and police associations shows they’ve had enough of the radical youths, who for weeks have made hea
dlines for resorting to violence supposedly to oppose an amendment to Hong Kong’s extradition law.上海楼凤
These radical youths have attacked police officers, stormed the legislature, and laid sie
ge to the police headquarters, all carried out in illegal and violent fashion, which th
上海楼凤品茶微信e silent majority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region could no longer remain mute spectators to.
This silent majority gathered together with one purpose in mind: to defend the SAR, its residents, its business and its values上海楼凤
by demanding an immediate end to the violence. The message “end divisions, defend Hong Kong” was read out
loud and clear by a young student at the rally held in Hong Kong’s central administrative and business center.
上海楼凤The silent majority of the SAR would have preferred to live a peaceful life and strive to achieve their dreams rather than rack t
heir brains over politics were it not for the danger their city is facing. Hong Kong’s social order and reputation as one of t
he world’s safest cities are not the only things at risk. The rule of law－which H上海楼凤
ong Kong residents cherish most and is crucial for the SAR’s long-term stability and prosperity－is also under threat.上海楼凤品茶微信
The radical elements’ sustained attacks on Hong Kong’s social fabric are a potent threat to the SAR’s上海楼凤品茶微信
social stability and economic prosperity. Not to mention people’s livelihoods and well being.
Around 4,000 university students have provided or will provide professional s

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

Officials said SSGKC’s importance continues to grow, and the iconic project for Sino上海夜生活

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

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

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

Wigmakers in Juancheng county, East China’s Shandong province, are
making great strides toward the high-end market after several years’ stable development.上海夜生活
Juancheng is a small county with a history of 2,200 years in Sha
上海夜生活品茶微信ndong province, and has a history of more than 40 years in the hair-processing industry.
Hair-processing is one of the pillar industries for Juancheng, whi
ch is known for hair products, and also an important raw material distribution ce上海夜生活
nter and processing and export base for wig products. Currently, Juancheng has a pop
ulation of 900,000, among which 75,000, or nearly one-in-12 work in the hair-processing industry.
上海夜生活品茶微信According to Juancheng’s official website, 220 hair-processing enterprises have been set up in this county, pro
cessing more than 15 million units of wig products annually. In 2017, the hair-processing
industry achieved 1.09 billion yuan in import and export, accounting for 74.67 percent of the total.上海夜生活
In the peak season, there were nearly 2,000 small and micro businesses engaged in wig produc

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

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.

上海千花坊品茶微信Even though the US Commerce Department added five Chinese supercomputer
