 上海千花网Shenzhen’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced in early July that th

e city was experiencing a serious shortage of DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) vaccines, which fell 175,000 do

ses short of demand. Supplies also couldn’t meet the demand for other category 1 vaccines, including those for l 上海千花网

eprosy, Japanese encephalitis (JE) and epidemic cerebrospinal meningitis group A and C.

A similar situation has troubled South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. 上海千花网女神会所

According to Guangxi’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the area was in short supp

ly of five category 1 vaccines: leprosy, MMR (measles-mumps-rubella), DTP, hepatitis A and JE. The lepr

 上海千花网osy vaccine supply faced the largest gap with its demand, with a supply rate of less than 20 percent.

Previously a diplomat focused on European affairs, Hua has se

Three men have been fined for smoking in the Palace Museum, said Beijing police Saturday.

 上海千花坊The signboards and banners — hoisted high along with the nationa

Sponsored by more than 70 community leaders, the rally is joined by well-known politicians, academics, celebrities, and representatives 上海千花坊女神会所

sudden shower of rain and the stuffy weather failed to deter the spirit of thousands of r 上海千花坊女神会所

esidents in Tamar Park on Saturday afternoon to show their support and gratitude to the city’s police force.

 上海千花坊They were gathering for a rally, organized by more than 7

police who had demonstrated great restraint and discipline in handling recent violent protests around the city.

 上海千花坊女神会所At around 4 pm, one hour before the official start of the rally, the park was already filled with p

eople of all ages and walks of life. They mostly dressed in light-colored clothes, white or blue, and wore no

face masks or helmets — in contrary to those radical protesters who wanted to hide their identities from the police.

Beijing police launched an investigation into the incident and its official social media 上海千花坊

account on July 20 said that the three smokers’ behavior violated principles of public conduct.

All three have confessed and apologized to the public. 上海千花坊女神会所

They are aged around 20 years old and traveled to Beijing for a summer holiday, according to Beijing police.

 上海千花坊The Palace Museum is a historical and cultural heritage site that should be protect

Having posted a video of their smoking online, each was fined 200 yuan for disturbing public order. 上海千花坊女神会所

The video was shot in an open-air area in the museum and shows a man asking who dares to

Fujian aims to devel上海419论坛op cruise industry

Xiamen International Cruise Home Port in East China’s Fujian province has registered a record

上海419论坛number of passengers passing through in the first of the year – 185,000, a 36 percent year-on-year increase.

Superstar Gemini, operated by Xiamen port partner Star Cruises上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛Having hosted over 3,500 passengers this year, it is expected

to have 70 operations this year, marking its longest cruise season in history.

“We’ve seen the cruise tour boom this year because we have deve上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛”Meanwhile the Belt and Road course is growing popul

ar among tourists thanks to the geographical advantage of our port,” said

Yang Lili, deputy general manager of Xiamen International Cruise Home Port Group.上海419论坛女神会所

In early April the reconstruction of Xiamen International Cruises’ berths was completed.

上海419论坛The total length is over 1,400 meters, including a 150,000-ton, two

80,000-ton and a 3,000-ton berths which can simultaneously accommodate three or fou

r medium and large cruise ships – including the world’s largest 225,000-ton cruise ship.上海419论坛女神会所

“After the reconstruction, the entire cruise service has been greatly improved. The fir

上海419论坛st Chinese-funded cruise ship, Gulangyu, will come into service in September.

“A 130,000-ton ship named Glory will also be brought into o

peration in Xiamen, marking a new area of giant cruises,” Yang Lili said.上海419论坛女神会所

The provincial government also rolled out a scheme this May to spur cruise ship growth by 2035, with

the aim of establishing a preliminary layout of harbors and shipping lines.上海419论坛女神会所

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took to Twitter to express his horror. “It’s so dre

 上海千花网品茶微信The fire department said it began receiving calls about the fire around 10:3

suspect sprayed an unidentified liquid accelerant, Kyoto prefectural police and fire officials said. 上海千花网

Kyoto Animation’s president, Hideaki Hatta, told reporters “there have been emails with death threats”, without givin

In China, Kyoto Animation’s Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan series are well known. 上海千花网

“It’s unbearable that those who have led Japan’s animation industry were hurt and lost their lives,” Hatta said.

 上海千花网品茶微信A witness who saw the suspect being approached by police told Japanese netw

Is the Chinese mainla上海千花网e main focus for your

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.
