China is an important stakeholder in Arctic affairs,” Wang

“The country has always adhered to international treaties, such as the Charter of the United Nations, the United Natio

ns Convention on the Law of the Sea, and the Spitsbergen Treaty, as well as other international laws and upheld the p

rinciple of respect, cooperation and common winning and sustainability when actively participating in Arctic affa

irs and contributing Chinese wisdom and power in the sustainable development of the Arctic region,” he said.

The annual Arctic Circle Forum, established in 2013 and initi

ated by Iceland’s then-president Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, is a platform to help the inter

national community care for, understand and protect the Arctic and discuss Arctic governance.

Nevertheless, it is difficult to separate cyclical elements

and external shocks from the long-term trend and to conclude that China’s potential growth rate really is 6-6.5 percent.

Many Chinese economists cite long-term supply-side structural factors-such as demographic agi

ng, environmental degradation, and a lack of progress on reform-to argue that China has simply en

tered a new stage of development, characterized by significantly lower potential growth rates.

Structural factors don’t explain falling growth rate

While this may be true-everyone in China agrees that 9-10 perce

nt annual growth rates are a thing of the past-there is no clear indication of how much Chin

a’s growth potential has actually declined. Long-term supply-side structural factors do not explain, for exam

ple, why the growth rate fell from 12.1 percent in the first quarter of 2010 to 7.4 percent in the third quarter of 2013.

About 100 million units of handsets are sold in Europe ever

year. We must build a presence there.”In the fourth quarter of 2018, Oppo outcompeted Samsung to

become the largest smartphone vendor in Thailand with a market share of 22.2 percent, gro

wing about 70 percent year-on-year, according to the market research company Canalys.

In 2018, Oppo shipped 113 million units of smartphones wor

ldwide, garnering a global market share of more than 8 percent, according to IDC data.

Other Chinese smartphone makers, including Huawei, Xiaomi and Vivo, are also looking beyon

d their home turf for growth. In this context, Oppo believes it has an edge over others as it first started its i

nternational journey as early as in 2009 in Thailand, much before others jumped on the going-global bandwagon.

Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwillin

  g to “negotiate with the Obama administration” about trade. In fact, the prev

ious administration sought to conclude a Transatlantic Trade and Investm

ent Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the line. Trump’s own talks on t

rade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump vs. his global counterparts

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a Pre

sident who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Trump, who was forced into

a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance, showing a unique melancholy

temperament. Even playing the soft role of “Yuhua Tian” can surprise many girls.

Recently, when Chen Kun participated in an event, fans and passers-by all knew that Chen Kun would appear.

Everyone was surrounded by three layers of interior and three layers of periphery. When Chen Kun appeared under the

protection of staff and bodyguards, the crowd immediately burst into excitement. Everyone was calling Chen Kun’s name,

hoping that the idol could see his side. Chen Kun wore a black down suit that day. His long black hair was also pinched by a black hairpin. As he walked, he folded his hands together to thank the fans for their enthusiasm.

At first, Chen Kun followed the staff. When he was halfway there, a passer-by shouted, “Yang Kun, how handsome!” As a result, Chen Kun, who had already taken several steps, turned around and corrected the passers-by seriously: Chen Kun, not Yang Kun.

Chen Kun’s serious corrective expression not only made passers-by laugh, but also the assistant beside Chen Kun could not help laughing.

Chen Kun corrected the mistake and looked at the passer-by with a firm eye. Then he was pulled forward by the assistant.

The passer-by nodded and laughed. Estimate is also a slip of the tongue, although Yang Kun and Chen Kun

are only one word apart, are also stars, but the difference in appearance is several grades.

On the evening of the 27th, Chen Kunfawen responded suspiciously to the video with the wrong name and wrote,

“When the plane landed, they turned on their mobile phones. I just got up.

I was a little embarrassed to hear my voice in a video. The other party looked up and stayed there for a while.

Suddenly he laughed, and I laughed embarrassingly. The beauty of life lies in coincidence.”

I didn’t expect Chen Kun to be such a real person in private, but do fans like Chen Kun also have new skills to stop idols?

 

Life is full of surprise and happiness.

Knowing how to treat things

with the eyes of looking for

beauty can always find many happy things.

last chapter closed with the arrival of Li Yue who shouted

the last chapter closed with the arrival of Li Yue who

shouted out falsely that the army was that of the two

arch rebels Li Jue and Guo Si come to capture the imperial cavalcade. But Yang Feng recognized the voice of Li Yue and bade Xu Huang go out to fight him. Xu Huang went and in the first bout the traitor fell. The White Wave rebels scattered, and the travelers got safely through Zhiguan Hills. Here the Governor of Henei, Zhang Yang, supplied them plentifully with food and other necessaries and escorted the Emperor to Zhidao. For his timely help, the Emperor conferred upon Zhang Yang the rank of a Grand Commander. Yang Feng moved his army to the northeast of Luoyang and camped at Yewang.

  Capital Luoyang was presently entered. Within the walls all was destruction. The palaces and halls had been burned, the streets were overgrown with grass and brambles and obstructed by heaps of ruins. The palaces and courts were represented by broken roofs and toppling walls. A small “palace” however was soon built, and therein the officers of court presented their congratulations, standing in the open air among thorn hushes and brambles. The reign style was changed from Prosperous Stability to Rebuilt Tranquillity, the first year (AD 196)。

  the year was grievous with famine. The Luoyang people, even reduced in numbers as they were to a few hundreds, had not enough to eat and they prowled about stripping the bark off trees and grubbing up the roots of plants to satisfy their starving hunger. Officers of the government of all but the highest ranks went out into the country to gather fuel. Many people were crushed by the falling walls of burned houses. At no time during the decadence of Han did misery press harder than at this period.

  A poem written in pity for the sufferings of that time says:

Mortally wounded, the white serpent poured forth its life blood at Mangdang Hills;Blood-red pennons of war waved then in every quarter, Chieftain with chieftain strove and raided each other’s borders, Midst the turmoil and strife the Kingship even was threatened.

Wickedness stalks in a country when the King is a weakling,

Brigandage always is rife,

when a dynasty’s failing, Had one a heart of iron,

wholly devoid of feeling, Yet would one surely

grieve at the sight of such desolation.

Lady Qiong did not wish him to go and she said,

Lady Qiong did not wish him to go and she said,

“This Li Jue is very deep, and one cannot fathom his designs. You two are not of equal rank, and if he made away with you, what would become of your poor handmaid?”

Guo Si paid no attention, and his wife could not prevail on him to stay at home.

Late in the afternoon some presents arrived from Li Jue’s palace, and Lady Qiong secretly put poison into the delicacies before she set them before her lord.

  Guo Si was going to taste at once but she said, “It is unwise to consume things that come from outside. Let us try on a dog first.”

  they did and the dog died. This incident made Guo Si doubt the kindly intentions of his colleague.

  One day, at the close of business at court, Li Jue

invited Guo Si to his palace. After Guo Si arrived home in the evening, rather the worse for too much wine,

he was seized with a colic. His wife said she suspected poison and hastily administered an emetic, which relieved the pain.

  Guo Si began to feel angry, saying, “We did everything together and helped each other always. Now he wants to injure me. If I do not get in the first blow, I shall suffer some injury.”

  So Guo Si began to prepare his guards for any sudden emergency.

  This was told to Li Jue, and he in turn GREw angry, saying, “So Guo Si is doing so and so!”

then Li Jue got his guards under way and came to attack Guo Si.

Both houses had ten thousand,

and the quarrel became so serious that they fought a pitched battle under the city walls.

When that was over both sides turned to plunder the people.
