ability essential for Hon上海千花网’s well-beinina Dai

To bring an end to the protests sparked by the proposed amendments to the special administrative region’s extradit

ion law, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced on Tuesday her ad上海千花网

ministration’s decision not to restart the suspended legislative process for the amendments, saying the “bill is dead”.

上海千花网女神会所The demonstrations, some of them violent, have threatened the health of the city’s economy and thus the well-being of its resi

dents, and Lam also unveiled a raft of practical initiatives aimed at strengthening communication between th

e SAR government and the public, with the ultimate objective of improving governance in the SAR.上海千花网女神会所

It might be demanding too much of those leading the protests to have the kind of vision and political courage exhibited by the chief exec

上海千花网utive in her willingness to make compromises in policymaking in the face of public opposition. But they sh

ould have the wisdom to realize that persistent political conflict and unrest do not bode well for the city and residents, es

pecially at a time when the local economy is still licking its wounds from the ongoing Sino-US trade row.上海千花网女神会所

Hong Kong’s economy has slowed significantly over recent months, with the yea

上海千花网r-on-year GDP growth having eased to 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the

slowest expansion in a decade — as both foreign trade and domestic consumption have been hard hit by the tra

de conflict between the Chinese mainland and the United States, the city’s two largest trading partners. Any es上海千花网女神会所

calation of the social conflict witnessed recently will only further harm Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihoods.

上海千花网Yet, the organizers of some of the mass rallies have said they will announce

more protests in the coming days until the bill is officially withdrawn from the legi

slative agenda. But more social unrest will only hinder efforts to tackle the fundamental problems that have a ta上海千花网

ngible effect on the lives of Hong Kong residents, particularly the younger generation — such as the severe housing s上海千花网女神会所

hortage, lack of social upward mobility and the widening wealth gap, which have fueled the social discontent.

 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

rating the chair umpire or for spending time at a local pub the night before the match.

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

s Nadal who emerged from all of the tumult Thursday at Wimbledon to beat Kyrgios 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (3) in a sec

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

ple that bought a ticket today probably had a great day,” said Kyrgios, a 24-year-old Au上海千花网

stralian who is ranked 43rd. “At times today, I was looking around: This is Wimbledon, playing Rafa. … But I’ll p

The event was held in the ministry’s South Building and was the

Fujian province, birthplace of ancient Maritime Silk Road, bears an important role as the core of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

The symbols inscribed on the Cong also appear on other Neolithic relics. This raises the quest

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

usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA

the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”

A great debate set over tariffs, technologyhorwom

Two television anchorwomen — one from China and one from the US — will debate

two sides of the long-running trade dispute between the two countries.

Liu Xin, a mainstay of the China Global

Television Network, and Trish Regan, a former CNBC busi

own show on the Fox Business Network, will have at it over i

ssues such as tariffs and technology

Wednesday at 8 pm EDT in the US and simultaneously at 8 am Thursday in China.

The discourse will take place via satellite, as Liu will be in CGTN’s studio in Beijing, while Regan will be at Fox’s studio in New York.

The debate idea came about after the two newswomen clashed earlier this month after Regan said Beijing stole “$600 bill

on worth of intellectual property a year”, leading to the Trump administration tariffs.

“Crowds are usual on some mountains. It’s not a new phenomenon. Climbers often lose their live

Sherpas are aware of every twist and turn and which paths to follow up mountains, so he urged the Nepali government to dis
