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

 上海千花坊Instead of shouting slogans of defiance, songs glorifying the spirit of Hong Kong and value

s cherished by its people were played during Saturday’s peaceful rally. The crowd hu 上海千花坊女神会所

mmed along when the well-known tune of Under the Lion Rock and Pearl of the Orient were played.

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

l flag and the Hong Kong SAR flag — read “Safeguard Hong Kong” and “Say No to Violence.”

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

of ethnic minority groups in the city. Among them are former commissioner of police Tang King-shing, former Le

 上海千花坊gislative Council president Jasper Tsang Yok-sing and former secretary for food and health Ko Wing-man.

Some of them would later take the forum and make the plea for peace and mutual respect.

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

0 community leaders in Hong Kong’s administrative and business center, to express support to the 上海千花坊

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

ed by the public, with all visitors abiding by the rules to maintain social order, said police.

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

 上海千花坊女神会所smoke in the Palace Museum and another inhaling a cigarette before saying, “Awesome”.

The video enraged Chinese netizens, with one saying he doesn’t want the 600-year-old Palace Museum to be burned like No

tre-Dame and another saying the men should be banned from tourist attractions.

This is a continuation o上海千花坊plan released in late

 which demands the quota for 2019 is 10 percent and 12 percent in 2020.

上海千花坊品茶微信To cut fuel consumption and promote the popularity of new energy vehic

les, China has imposed tough regulations on passenger carmakers and importers, who will

be given two separate scores for traditional vehicle energy efficiency and new energy vehicle production.上海千花坊

If they fail to amass enough credits for either traditional vehicles or new energy veh

上海千花坊icles, they may face penalties and their vehicles may not even be allowed on the road.

The new draft also changes the amount of credits that a carmaker can earn by manufacturing new energy vehicles.

Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, especi上海千花坊品茶微信

ally international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.

Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy enviro上海千花坊

nment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.

上海千花坊品茶微信The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will be made in

China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.

So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.上海千花坊

The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 u

nits during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.

上海千花坊品茶微信The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.

For instance, an electric car that can run 350 kilometers on one charge would earn 5 credits for上海千花坊

its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be reduced to 2.5,

上海千花坊品茶微信ccording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.

He added that the proposed policy encourag

Since 2018, with an updated policy, the authorities have been rolling out lists of specific上海千花坊

NEVs and small engine vehicles regularly for them to get tax cuts or exemptions.

上海千花坊Cui said the extended tax exemption to more NEVs this time will especi

ally better support the development of commercial NEVs, whose owners are m

ore sensitive to prices and taxes, because they usually own a large number of such vehicles.上海千花坊女神会所

Inclusion into the newest tax exemption list also endorses the quality and technical

上海千花坊capabilities of such NEVs, which will help the manufactures to build brand image and attract customers, he said.

Qiu Kaijun, an industry observer and founder of Evobserver, an influential social med上海千花坊女神会所

ia platform in the NEV industry, said the vehicle and vessel tax cut measures are part of the authorities’ bro

ader efforts to boost the development of the NEV industry, as they aim to encourage purchases of NEVs, although t上海千花坊

he effects are not as influential as other incentives including financial subsidies and rebates of purchase tax.

The NEV industry in China has been developing very fast in recent years, as the co上海千花坊

untry pushes forward with efforts to build a globally competitive automobile industry.

上海千花坊女神会所There are two main points that Chinese audiences are unhappy with. First, in the trailer there are shots of Fujian, which is ab

out 3,000 kilometers away from historical home of Mulan in history. Second, the heroine Mulan, starring Cr

ystal Liu, wears heavy makeup that is appealing to Westerners’ eyes, not Chinese eyes.上海千花坊

Perhaps the criticism is unfair as Disney has designed the movie to please Western audiences, who c

上海千花坊女神会所are more about the story than the historical facts. That’s why Chinese audiences should not expect the f

ilm to have accurate Chinese elements even though the story is Chinese and almost all the leading actors are Chinese or

at least ethnic Chinese. It shows Chinese elements through the eyes of Westerners.

In 2018, NEV sales in China maintained robust growth of 61.7 percent

year-on-year, although the broader auto market sales contracted 2.8 percent year-on-y

ear, according to statistics from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

For the January-May period this year, China’s NEV production and s

ales reached 480,000 units and 464,000 units, up 46 percent and 41.5 percent y

ear-on-year, respectively, according to Xin Guobin, vice-minister of industry and information technology.

China had 340 million motor vehicles by the end of June this year, while the number of NEVs had reached 3.44 mi

llion, according to figures released by the Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday.

Williams’ partner for 上海千花坊bles, two-time Wimbled

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

n to the Dog & Fox and have a beer together,” referring to a nearby bar where Kyrgios was spotted W上海千花坊

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

上海千花坊品茶微信d after he lost despite producing a 58-44 advantage in winners, including 29 aces — one a se

cond serve at a tournament-high 143 mph and a pair that he hit with an underarm motion.

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

y. I won’t train day in, day out. I won’t show up every day. So there’s a lot of things I need to improve on to get to that le

vel that Rafa brings. … But, no, at the moment I don’t think I can contend for a Grand Slam.”上海千花坊品茶微信

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

r. But against Nadal, he displayed boundless power, guile, touch and athleticism.

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

re more important to look cool than to play well. The between-the-leg shots, the un

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.

6,000 exhibitions in 2018 and received 1.126 billion people, an increase of 30 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

 He also said improving transparency for projects’ financing is needed, especially for green

financing, and using local currencies in BRI investments to curb exchange rate risks. “The opening of local curr
