At 7:30 pm on July 15, 1971, United States President Richard Nixon
spoke to the nation from a television studio in Burbank, California.上海419论坛
“I have requested this time tonight to announce a major development in our efforts to build a lasting peace in the wo

owing that Nixon wanted to visit China, Zhou, on behalf of the Chinese government, had invited him to come to the co

Nixon said, “The meeting between the leaders of China and the United States is to seek the normalization of relations bet
上海419论坛ween the two countries and also to exchange views on questions of concern to the two sides.”
More than two years of complex, subtle and deter
mined diplomatic efforts and negotiations preceded the announcement.上海419论坛女神会所
Nixon wrote in his memoirs, published in 1978: “Despite the almost miraculous secrecy we had been able to maintain, the C

t just invaluable repositories of Buddhist art, the artifacts also illuminate the historical and cultural interactions a
上海后花园女神会所mong the world’s civilizations. They were created amid some of the most open periods in Chinese history,” Zhang said.
Building on the conservation support it received from the United States, France
and other countries starting in the 1980s, the academy has since extended its rese上海后花园
arch work to other developing areas, Zhang said. Zhang himself led a multidisciplinary research trip to the Ba
miyan Buddhist statues site in Afghanistan last year. The Taliban turned the statu

“Our researchers have gone to India, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. We are going out and opening more doors to cultural inter
action, sharing our knowledge that traces back to Dunhuang’s place on the Silk Road,” he said.上海后花园
Zhang Yuanlin, chief librarian and director of the center for research on the Silk Road and Dunhuan
上海后花园女神会所g at the academy, said the Mogao Caves are fascinating examples of the cultural, religious and soci
al interaction that China hosted in ancient times through its role as a trading hub.
The cave artifacts depict artistic elements beyond India, and Central and Wes上海后花园
tern Asia, to encompass influences from as far away as Greece and Rome, he said.
One cave mural of a horse-riding solar deity上海后花园
resembles the Apollo of Greek mythology, the Mithra sun god of Persian Zo
上海后花园女神会所roastrianism and the Surya sun god of the Vedic religion, according to Zhang Yuanlin.
Another cave contained images of 12 ecliptical signs, with some resembling Western descr

While addressing the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly on Sept 28, 2015, President Xi Jinping, in his state
上海贵族宝贝品茶微信ment titled “Working together to forge a new partnership of win-win cooperation and create a community of shared future for ma
nkind”, emphasized that, “In today’s world, all countries are interdependent and share a common future.”
Based on this judgment, he urged all countries to build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, and create a commu上海贵族宝贝
nity with a shared future for mankind based on five principles: building partnerships in which countries treat each other as eq
uals, engage in mutual consultation and show mutual understanding; creating a security architecture featuring fa
上海贵族宝贝irness, justice, joint contribution and shared benefits; promoting open, innovative and inclusive development th
at benefits all; increasing inter-civilization exchanges to promote harmony, inclusiveness and respect for dif
ferences; and building an ecosystem that puts Mother Nature and green development first.上海贵族宝贝品茶微信
Given the nature of the current international community and the inertia of internationa
l politics, characterized by the law of the jungle and zero-sum games, there is reason enough to doubt th
上海贵族宝贝e enforceability of Xi’s beautiful ideas. It seems humankind is in a dilemma, the dilemma of choosing between a c
ommunity with a shared future or a community with no future. But there is only one correct choice.
To transform the current international community into a community with a shared future for mankind, countries acr上海贵族宝贝品茶微信
oss the world have to take a variety of measures, including political, economic, security and environmental measures. F
or instance, Xi proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013 with the aim of improving infrastructure connectivity bet
上海贵族宝贝ween Asia and Europe and Africa, and thus help build a community with a shared future for mankind.
Equally important, intercultural communication can play an
irreplaceable role in this historical undertaking. On the one hand, it can foster awareness of shar上海贵族宝贝品茶微信
ed economic, security and environmental interests among citizens of different countries and, as a result, the gro
wing awareness among people of shared interests will constantly expand the foundation of a community with a shar
上海贵族宝贝ed future for mankind. On the other hand, intercultural communication can accumulatively foster common core values
such as peace, development, harmony in diversity, equity, justice, democracy and freed
om, all of which are fundamental to the survival of a community of shared future.

tivated Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s decision may well have been the muted inflation pressures and par
上海夜网品茶微信ticularly global growth concerns, which the White House has undermined since the onset of its tariff wars in spring 2018.
Interestingly, the Fed cut did not cause a rally; it stumped the market. S&P 500 dropped almost上海夜网
2 percent and 10-year Treasury yields to about 2 percent. The Fed’s interest cut does not imply a start of a new r
上海夜网ate cut cycle. Instead, it does mean the post-2008 recovery is now over with darker clouds looming on the horizon.
Tariff wars cloud US and global forecasts
When US President Donald Trump assumed office in January 2017, he pledged GDP growth at 4 percent. More recen上海夜网品茶微信
tly, he projected US growth at 3 percent. Yet analysts estimate US growth this year at 2.5 percent or less. Qua
上海夜网litative assessments suggest deterioration, as the growth of domestic demand is slumping.
Worse, US GDP growth forecasts for 2020 indicate softening to 1.8 percent, possibl
y a (near-recession) slowdown－especially if trade and tech wars still escalate. In the absence of negative su上海夜网品茶微信
rprises, China’s GDP growth is likely to stay within the target of 6.2 percent in 2019 and possibly in 2020 as well, with su
上海夜网pportive fiscal and monetary conditions. US tariff wars are likely to penalize the Chinese economy by less th
an 0.5 percent of GDP, which could be offset by just a modest depreciation of the renminbi.
If recent policy mistakes in the White House prevail, slower growth in investment上海夜网品茶微信
spending, rising concern for continued trade wars and destabilizing geopolitics are likely to foster downside risks

South Korea – An internal balcony at a nightclub in South Korea collapsed on Saturday, killing two 上海419论坛
people and injuring 16 including American and other athletes at the world swimming championships, officials said.
上海419论坛女神会所Hundreds were at the nightclub in the southern South Ko
rean city of Gwangju when the collapse occurred next to the athletes’ village.
Two South Korean men died while 16 others were injured, police
said. According to a police account, the injured include 10 foreigners, eight of them ath 上海419论坛
letes who were in Gwangju to participate in the swimming championships.
上海419论坛女神会所Among the athletes were three Americans, two New Zealande

Police said they detained one of the nightclub’s co-owners and summoned three othe
上海419论坛女神会所r club officials to investigate whether the collapsed balcony was an unauthorized structure.
“This is an awful tragedy,” said Christopher Ramsey, CEO of USA Water Polo. “Players from our

上海419品茶微信s visits with people involved in the case, that the 2007 ruling was based on the wrongful application of laws.
The 1999 ruling will also be reviewed at the rehearing, the court added.
The case received national attention in April when a local newspaper reported several gangs, including one led by Sun, were 上海419
smashed in a crackdown against organized crimes in Kunming. Sun was then detained for the gang activities.
The case triggered widespread public concern over possible corruption in the judicial and prison syst
上海419品茶微信ems after follow-up stories discovered Sun was the same man convicted of the multiple charges in 1
998 and that he had therefore mysteriously escaped death and been living as a free man.
Sun became shareholder of several enterprises and controlled many bars after leaving prison. 上海419
As the controversies were spreading on Chinese social media, a central inspection group to fight gangrelated cri
上海419品茶微信mes arrived in Yunnan, and demanded a thorough investigation of how Sun appeared to have escaped justice.
In an early release of the inspection group in May, 11 people in Yunnan, including a former senior prison official and a local high cou 上海419
rt judge, had been detained over their possible roles in helping Sun escape capital punishment.
By Friday, the number of officials involved in Sun’s case had increased to 20, according to the official release.
上海419品茶微信Sun’s case also sparked public speculation because of his various identiti
es and family connections, who were widely believed to have sheltered his legal activities.
However, specific information about Sun’s family released on Friday shows that statements previously spread online were u 上海419
ntrue, especially the speculation that Sun’s biological father was a very influential person.
上海419品茶微信Chen Yue, Sun’s biological father, joined the Kunming Public Security Bureau in 1 973 aft
er leaving the army. He divorced Sun’s mother, Sun Heyu, in 1982, and left the police in 1985
