?2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤品茶微信It’s not a misconception, exactly, but a lot of people can’t come to terms with what it means to be human without considering the un

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊
anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.
Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊品茶微信
can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.
In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on
following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊
Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout
2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.
When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice
.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e
choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊
ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.
The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊品茶微信
the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.
This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊
smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.
“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花坊品茶微信
sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve
ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

The chief executive of HSBC has stepped down after less than two years in the job, as the bank

The bank has also said it could cut nearly 5,000 jobs due to a weaker outlook, and the depar

Under Flint’s leadership, the bank has pivoted to Asia, which
accounted for more than half of its operating income in the second quarter.
HSBC Chairman Mark Tucker said talks over Flint’s future had been “going on for a while” and the decision was not taken lightly.2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花网女神会所

HSBC said it would look both internally and externally for a new leader and that Noel Q

The 51-year-old Flint ran the bank’s retail and wealth management business be

2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花网In an interview with the Financial Times on Monday, Tucker said: “This had noth
ing to do with personalities; this was a unanimous decision of the non-executive directors.”
Tucker denied that Flint was opposed to new cost cutting plans, which HSBC revealed on Monday would result in up to
4,700 job cuts, or 2 percent of its 237,685-strong global workforce. The move is e2019微信红包接龙群二维码千花网女神会所

HSBC made the surprise announcement as it reported a 15.8 percent rise in pretax profit to $12.4 billion for the six months to June 30.

In 2004, he became the host of a new TV program, China Today, which is broadcast daily in the Kyrgyz language via satellite on Kyrgyzstan national TV.2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所
The program runs 60 minutes, with a 15-minute special report or documentary on Chinese cultu

The program team adapts videos from China Central Television and other television stations and dubs th

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do
es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities
Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai
nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.
Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo
d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.
But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec
ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所
Mainland visitors－a large number of whom are individual travelers－account for ab
out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤
hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.
But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou
rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所
ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur
2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.
Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai
and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi2019微信红包接龙群二维码楼凤女神会所
ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.
