Chinese tourists in Croatia will be in for a surprise when they see police from their homeland patrolling the streets this summer.

For the second year running, Chinese law enforcement officers will be joining their fellow上海千花坊女神会所

professionals in the popular Balkan tourist destination on the streets of the capita

上海千花坊l Zagreb, the historic walled city of Dubrovnik, tourist resort Zadar and Croatia’s biggest county, Lika-Senj.

Croatia has been running the Safe Tourism Season project since 2

006 when officers from Hungary became the first foreign law enforcement officials invited to t

ake part. Since then, more than 800 officers from 19 countries have come to assist their上海千花坊

Croatian counterparts at the height of the tourist season, undergoing special localized training before starting patrols.

上海千花坊女神会所In addition to the helpful presence of fellow Chinese officers on the

streets, Chinese tourists will also be able to benefit from special telephone support line

s set up in the regions where the visiting police are deployed, with compatriots answering calls.上海千花坊

In 2018, there were six officers from China and this year there will be eight.

Croatia, which was part of the former Yugoslavia, is proving an increasingly popular destination for Chinese visitors.

上海千花坊女神会所In the first half, there has been a 53 percent year-on-year rise in the number of Chin

ese visitors to the ancient Roman port of Split, and a 20 percent increase in numbers going to Zagreb.

“Chinese tourists are mostly interested in historical and cultural monuments

and sightseeing,” said Zagreb Tourist Board spokeswoman Darja Dragoje.

uropean Commission上海千花坊elect Ursula von der Ley

With Tuesday’s victory, von der Leyen has become the first Germ

an commission president since Walter Hallstein served in that post from 1958 to 1967.上海千花坊女神会所

Juncker, also from the EPP, offered his congratulations on Twitter, saying: “This job is a

上海千花坊huge responsibility and a challenge. I am sure you will make a great President.”

European Council President Donald Tusk said in a tweet: “Congratulations [email protected] Congratulations Europe.”

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who will succeed Tusk on Dec 1, said on Twitter that h上海千花坊

e looked forward to cooperating closely with the institutions for the future of Europe. “Let’s work togeth

er in the interest of all Europeans,” Michel said. The post included a photo of him shaking hands with von der Leyen.

上海千花坊女神会所Von der Leyen, a mother of seven, had the backing of her own EPP as well as the cent

er-left Socialists and Democrats and the liberal Renew Europe party, the three major pol

itical forces in the European Parliament. But many of the members also vowed to vote against her.上海千花坊

The Greens and some left-wing and right-wing parties were the most vocal in opposing her nomination.

Ska Keller, co-leader of the Greens, offered her congratulations after the announcement of the vote result. But in a tweet af

上海千花坊女神会所ter von der Leyen’s opening speech in the morning, Keller said: “Nice speech by @vonderleye

During the morning speeches, many members of the European Parliament delivered scath

Monika Vana, an Austrian MEP of the Greens, blasted von der Leyen’s argument for more military spending. “A majori

and education as a priority. That’s what this majority of citizens wants,” she said.

China to EU, the US tariff 上海419论坛 continuesWith the Offic

 of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariffs on $

4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海419论坛

sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU goo

上海419论坛品茶微信ds-in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US ad

ministration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.

Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute ove上海419论坛

r the subsidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tari

ffs to exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global

上海419论坛品茶微信market and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.

The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “thre

e zeros”-zero tariff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy-for non-auto industrial products.上海419论坛

Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agricu

上海419论坛品茶微信ltural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington comp

elled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.

As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campai

gn, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the votes from the agricultural belts helpe上海419论坛品茶微信

d him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has provided numerous subsidies for farmers to

help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and other eco上海419论坛

nomies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agr

上海419论坛品茶微信icultural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.

However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane manuf

acturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose m

ore tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU goo

ds, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

according to sources wit上海夜网rnment.ses by the en

In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M

ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta

ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网

The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.

上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T

rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t

he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网

Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.

上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended

the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.

Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his

country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网

But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C

上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.

Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has

been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网

ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.

The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized

the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信

itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.

Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网

task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con

上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi

ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno

wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信

About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin

上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year

posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.

According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信

mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be

上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.

The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in

2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信

14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.

上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi

s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.

“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信

1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.

上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint

ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma

o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信

Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin

上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu

rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信

ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col

上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.

“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp

ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.

“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th

e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le

ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”

Exploring challenges 上海千花坊ities in healthcare

To explore further the challenges and huge opportunities in this area, the Novartis Fou

ndation and Microsoft are co-chairing a new Broadband Commission working group that will m上海千花坊

ake recommendations regarding how AI can safely improve health and strengthen healthcare systems. In a sim

上海千花坊品茶微信ilar vein, health-advocacy organization PATH is working with the Tanzanian government to test machine-lea

rning applications that promise to predict demand for vaccines more accurately and optimize their delivery.上海千花坊

Digital health tools that inform and empower patients can also play a crucial role in p

reventing disease. Simple, existing, cost-effective technology, such as mobile phones and broadband, can ma上海千花坊品茶微信

ke a huge difference in raising awareness of the causes and early symptoms of diseases. PATH and the No

上海千花坊vartis Foundation, for example, are collaborating on the Communities for Healthy Hearts program in Vietnam, w

hich uses digital technology to improve and accelerate control of hypertension-the leading cause of heart disease.

Finally, digital technology can help to deliver healthcare to people in remote or und上海千花坊品茶微信

erserved areas, thereby tackling one of the greatest obstacles to reducing disease. Using

mobile phones, WhatsApp, and text messages can improve the quality and accessibility of care for millions of people. In this re上海千花坊品茶微信

gard, the Novartis Foundation and PATH have introduced telemedicine in Ghana, which connects rural inhabitants wi

th trained healthcare professionals, and digital dashboards that enable better, faster malaria care.上海千花坊品茶微信

Digital data must be made part of health systems

Digital data and technology must be fully integrated into national health systems, and should become as essential as hos

pital beds. Too many digital health pilot programs over the past decade have been uncoordinated and focused on sing上海千花坊

le issues. Leadership from national governments is therefore critical to ensuring a coherent approach.

Fortunately, global and country-led efforts are starting to move in this direction. Earlier this year, for example, the D上海千花坊品茶微信

emocratic Republic of the Congo established its first digital health agency, with the aspiration of improving ma

nagement of the healthcare system, providing better care, and making services more accessible.

We can solve the global health crisis and achieve universal coverage, but only by making

digital tools central to all countries’ health systems. No single organization can achieve this on its own: we

need the public, private and social sectors to work together. In fact, the goal must be to make these new technologies s

o widespread that we no longer need to refer to “digital” health, because that is what all health systems will be.
