of Guangdong province, is developing into a cluster for advanced industries and a business center of southern China.
“It was not a tough decision for us to come to the CBD,” said Andy T上海夜生活
an, general manager of Zurich General Insurance Co (China) Ltd Guangdong Branch.
上海夜生活女神会所”Since all the world-class financial institutions are here, the
financial information is prompt and there is a rich pool of professional staff.”

on singles winner Andy Murray, won his first-round match in men’s doubles as he returned to the tournament for the first time in two years following two hip oper
ations. Marcos Baghdatis, the 2006 Australian Open runner-up and a fan favorite, played what he says will be the last上海千花坊
match of his career. Marin Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion and a 2017 Wimbledon finalist, lost, too.
None of that really mattered, in the end.
上海千花坊品茶微信Everything was rendered secondary to Nadal vs. Kyrgios.
Part of that is because a 19-year-old Kyrgios beat then-No. 1 Nadal at the All England Club in 2014.
Part of that is because they traded barbs away from the court recently in a spat that also involved Nadal’s uncle, Toni.上海千花坊品茶微信
In the leadup to this meeting, Kyrgios joked that he didn’t think “me and Rafa could go dow

ednesday night. The 33-year-old Nadal, meanwhile, observed that he was “too old for all this stuff.”
They could hardly be more different, something Kyrgios underline

These two couldn’t even agree on whether Kyrgios is capable of winning major championships.
Nadal’s take? “With his talent and with his serve, he can win a Grand Slam, of course.”上海千花坊品茶微信
And Kyrgios’ self-assessment? “I know what I’m capable of. Just depe
上海千花坊nds. I’m a great tennis player, but I don’t do the other stuff. I’m not the most professional gu

He is ranked 43rd, and hasn’t been past the quarterfinals at a majo

Kyrgios, his shirt collared popped just so, seemed to act at times as if it we

necessary leaping backhands and all the rest. On the initial point of the pivotal fourth-set tiebreaker, he jumped high for a
showy overhead instead of making a safer putaway. The result? He deposited his
shot ball in the net, then rolled his eyes and chucked away a ball. Soon, the match was over.

England — Rafael Nadal was up near the Centre Court net when Nick Kyrgios smacked a booming forehand directly at the上海千花网
guy’s midsection — right at him, on purpose — and earned a lengthy staredown in return.
上海千花网Kyrgios didn’t apologize, at the time or at his news conference — for that or for be

Rarely does Kyrgios offer regrets, for much of anything. Instead, h

“I’m always willing to go out there and try and put on a show. I know peo

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b

ovation in the new era of China’s all-round opening up of its market. This was the first time for SSKF, which in上海夜生活
augurated in 2013, to be held in Singapore after five successful years of forums in Guangzhou.
上海夜生活Being the flagship project of Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC), the annual event of
SSKF is currently the only high-level forum taking turns to being held in China and Singapore. It is also the strategic dialogue pl

This year’s distinguished keynote speakers who delivered the opening addresses include Ong Ye Kung, Singapore Education Minister and co-chair
person of the Singapore-Guangdong Collaboration Council; Ma Xingrui, governor of Guangdong province and Zho
u Yawei, director-general of Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City administrative committee. Zhong M

Ong Ye Kung hoped for SS上海夜生活品茶微信KF to continue to serve as a high-end strate
gic dialogue platform for Singapore-Guangdong cooperation, positioning SSGKC to be one
上海夜生活品茶微信of the leading projects among Sino-Singapore bilateral collaborations with its uniqueness in software cooperation.
Zhou Yawei also recognized SSGKC’s achievement of transforming itself into a large-scale and high-profile city of technol
ogy and innovation. SSKF has also earned its credit of bridging ideas and minds in the past years. SSGKC is be
lieved to have reached greater heights with its new identity as a nation-level bilateral collaborative project.上海夜生活品茶微信
Themed “Forging New Frontiers – All-round Opening Up and Innovation-driven Development”, this year’s forum aims
to tap on the collective intelligence of think tank experts and business leaders from China and Singapore, to exp
lore hot trending topics and embark on panel discussions regarding the future collaborations and developments be
tween China and Singapore. An estimate of 250 guests from Singapore and China have attended the Forum.
Two thematic panel sessions took place right after the opening ceremony and the sessions were themed respectively as “The Co
llaboration and Development Strategies between China and Singapore in the New Era of All-Round Opening up” an
d “High Quality Development, Reform and Innovation”. Invited guests from China and Singapore adopted a three-pr

Dynamic, high-value city
上海夜网女神会所”SSGKC has developed into a knowledge economy center driven by innovation with global c
ompetitiveness and a desirable place to work and live,” a leading official of the city said.
Located in the core area of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Ar上海夜网
ea, SSGKC is 25 kilometers from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and almost 35 km from do
wntown Guangzhou, Guangdong’s capital.上海夜网女神会所
Besides the completion of a subway network linking SSGKC to the re
st of Guangzhou by the end of this year, in the future the area will also be connected to o
上海夜网ther cities and provinces by eight rail lines, five roads and seven urban expressways.
“We have favorable locations, a strong research institute, a State-level pilot zone for IP protection and improved transportation network and efficient o
perations, which ensure SSGKC will be an ideal destination for investment,” the official added.上海夜网女神会所
SSGKC is designed to cover a total greenfield area of 123 sq km. But about half of the area has been earmarked for urban use, during the 15 to 20 year de
velopment period from the 2010 ground-breaking ceremony, while the other half will be preserved as green spaces.
上海夜网Ultimately, the knowledge city will house a population of 500,000 a
nd become a vibrant place for all to “live, work, learn and play”, its designers have said.
To date, the project’s startup phase, with an area of 6.27 sq km, has been substantially completed.上海夜网女神会所
According to official figures, more than 1,000 companies have registered with SSGKC since 2010, with an aggregate regist

上海千花坊BeiGene, a Chinese biotechnology company, is building its state-of-the-art manufacturing site in SSGKC.
The company was founded by Wang Xiaodong and John Oyler in 2010. Wang has served as a membe上海千花坊女神会所

“Hopeful ly, some innovative medicines will be soon produced in the new plant in SS上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所”We believe our location in SSGKC could help us achieve greater influence because it could radiate to the surrounding mar
kets such as China’s Hong Kong and Macao as well as Southeast Asian countries,” the executive said.
Herman Lee, vice-president for market and business development at Guangzhou CanSemi Technology Inc, said the upg
rade of SSGKC is very encouraging for his company, and could help it further enrich its talent pool.上海千花坊女神会所
The company will invest a total of 7 billion yuan in facilities in SSG
KC that will produce 12-inch wafers, of which the first phase is expected to be put into use in上海千花坊女神会所
the fourth quarter of 2019 with a monthly production capacity of 20,000 wafers.
“As we know, SSGKC will enjoy the same treatment as the free trade zone in terms of market access, investment promotions and t

The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is getting
bolder in its reforms and experimentation, following an official upgrade centering on its ambitio上海乌托邦女神会所
ns to be a world-class knowledge city, an outstanding source of innovation in the region and a global talent magnet.
According to a framework agreement signed by the Chinese and Singaporean governments on Mo上海乌托邦
nday, the iconic Sino-Singaporean collaboration project based in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s
上海乌托邦Guangdong province, was officially elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.
Both governments pledged in the agreement that they will use the project to deepen coopera上海乌托邦

According to official figures, 1,216 companies have registered with SSGKC since 2010, with an
aggregate registered capital of 125.8 billion yuan ($18.1 billion) and about 91 billion yuan in fixed assets.上海乌托邦
Industry insiders said companies registered with SSGKC, especially those in the sector of biomedic

ut into operation in the next two years and will make the community a global rising star in its field.
上海乌托邦Shortly after the agreement, the Guangzhou government said in a press release that as a model for a city’s
knowledge economy, SSGKC will undertake more innovative reforms and measures to make itself Guangzhou’s top in
vestment destination for global enterprises and an ideal place for them to develop.上海乌托邦女神会所
Companies in the knowledge city will also enjoy incentive policies that the c

The knowledge city is seeking approval from higher-level authorities
to launch 18 innovation policies, across the fields of intellectual property, financial services, foo

Brown was impressed by the honesty and simplicity of the Chinese people during his last 上海夜生活女神会所
trip. He remembered his wife Susan attracted a large crowd when she bought apricots on the street, because the loca

pay them more but was refused. Instead, they put some more apricots in the bag.
The generosity of Chinese people, even the poorest one they encountered, made them blush, said Brown. 上海夜生活女神会所
