The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc
上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit
ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe
ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.
A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信
l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.
Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛
e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me
tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.
上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua
lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit
beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛
US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.
上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready
to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count
ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛
“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.
He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr
essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信
owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.
Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w
hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信
hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committe上海419

上海419品茶微信Xi said that the local legislatures and their standing committees have performed their du
ties in a responsible way and made important contributions to reform and development over the past four decades.
Faced with the present situations and tasks in the new era, th上海419

上海419Xi urged local people’s congresses and their standing committees to ensure deputies play their roles better.
The local legislatures and their standing committees should maintain close ties with the people and observe their needs, X
said, asking them to guarantee people’s rights and interests under the rule of law.上海419品茶微信

re the trip. I’d then return them without having to go through all the hassle of doing laundry,” she says.上海品茶微信女神会所
“I think women just need different clothes instead of new clothes. I don’t need a closet that is larger than necessary to p
上海品茶微信rove myself. My professional achievements are my most glittering accessories,” she adds.
She is so proud of adopting this approach that she openly admits to her friends that she rents cloth

Consumers like Shen, who are open to renting fashion items, are driving the sharing econo
上海品茶微信my within the fashion industry, which has been slow to jump on the bandwagon, says Clement Tang, CEO of Le To
e China, an online clothing rental company that originated in San Francisco in 2012.
According to the State Information Center, China’s sharing economy was worth 2.94 trilli上海品茶微信女神会所
on yuan by 2018, an increase of 41 percent year-on-year, and more than 760 mill
ion Chinese-over half the country’s population-have paid for shared services or products.
上海品茶微信The center also estimated that the annual growth rate in the sharing economy in China would remain steady at around 30 percent over the next three years.
A consumer survey by consultancy firm Mintel found that transportation remains the most popular上海品茶微信女神会所
segment in the sharing economy. Among the 3,000 consumers polled by the consultancy, 91 percent said the
y have paid to share car rides or bicycles. In contrast, clothing is the second least popular category, above mothe上海品茶微信
r care and baby products, with only 9 percent of the interviewees saying they pay for such services.
Rachel Botsman, the author of What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption, noted in o上海品茶微信女神会所
ne of her TED talks that the rise of the sharing economy in other fields has provided a basis for the deva
luation of ownership in fashion, where there has long been “a stigma behind rental”.上海品茶微信
According to its website, TED is “a nonpartisan nonprofit (organi
zation) devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks”.上海品茶微信女神会所
“Clothing rental could be the next big revolution for the fashion industry, after the rise of fast fashion and e-commerce,” says Tang.
Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years
ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom that could help us. The mainla上海千花网女神会所
nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have
上海千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour
se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.上海千花网女神会所
Do you design especially for the mainland market?
We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c上海千花网
are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol
d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we上海千花网
will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.
The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?
上海千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We
do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin
ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod上海千花网
uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K
上海千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist
s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?
The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These上海千花网
influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.
We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces
上海千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r
ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.
What’s your best-selling piece?上海千花网女神会所
Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,
but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel
ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co上海千花网
ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha上海千花网女神会所
nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.

Tan, who gave three shows in Yantai in 1868, was the first Peking Opera master who performed in Yantai.
上海千花网Peking Opera master Zhou Xinfang (1895-1975) made his debut performance in Yantai in 1907 when he was 12 years old.
After that he performed in Yantai six times from 1907 to 1931, which made him a household name in the city.
“Then, Peking Opera troupes which toured the country stopped by the docks at the上海千花网品茶微信
port in Yantai. as the city was regarded as a place which could test the popularity of the artists,” says Zhang.
During the summer camp, the Yantai Art Museum will also hold Peking O

In 2018, a project was launched by the government to promote Peking Opera in Yantai, especially among the young generation.
An original Peking Opera production Liberation of Yantai, which chronicles Yantai’s上海千花网品茶微信

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.
China will maintain a prudent monetary policy in the year’s second half, with potential policy adjustments depending mainly on
the domestic economic situation and price levels, a senior central bank official said on Friday.上海千花网女神会所
Having noticed the recent monetary easing in some foreign central banks and the United States Fe

f enterprises, said Sun Guofeng, head of the monetary policy department of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank.上海千花网
“In the second half, we will maintain the liquidity at a reasonably ample level through leveraging
diversified tools and strengthening macroeconomic policy coordination,” said Sun, adding that mo
derate money supply growth can support the country’s high-quality economic growth.上海千花网
Sun made the remark after the central bank released major financial da
ta on Friday. The broad money supply, or M2, increased by 8.5 percent by the end of June
上海千花网女神会所from a year earlier. The growth rate had remained unchanged for three consecutive months starting in April.
Chinese banks issued yuan-denominated loans of 9.67 trillion yuan ($1.41 trillion) in the first six month

Total social financing, a broad measure of credit and liquidity in the economy, increased by 13.23 trillion yuan in the firs
