上海夜生活That could be said of Gauff, of course, but she sure is looking like someone who can go far in the coming years.

She has a big serve, dialing it up to 118 mph on Friday — only Hercog

and Serena Williams have hit one faster this week — and good groundstrokes off both wings, al上海夜生活品茶微信

ong with some touch and guile. And what she possesses, above all, is some real calm amid a storm.

As Hercog perfectly put it: “She’s probably older in her head than the numbers show.”上海夜生活

Hercog, who is ranked 60th, and is now 0-4 in third-round matches at majors, used a seven-game run to grab the open

With Gauff serving at 30-40, Hercog was a point from victory. But the teen conjured

In 1972, David Bowie gave birth to arguably his most famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust-an androgynous alien with spiky tangerine h

air, theatrical makeup and brightly-colored glam rock attire. An eponymous ode to the character appears on

Bowie’s album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, which was released that year.

With the album, Bowie redefined glam rock and spent 18 months in the

years 1972 and 1973 touring the United Kingdom, North America and Japan.

During the tour, Bowie invited a Cambridge University graduate, M

ick Rock, to be his personal photographer. They first met backstage in March 1972.

ommunication key to shared future for mankind

The Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations, which will be he

nth following the proposal of President Xi Jinping, demonstrates China’s

deep thinking and responsibility for promoting the development of civilization in Asia and the world. The conferenc

ization becomes colorful because of exchanges, and abundant because of mutual learning”. He urged nations to “seek

wisdom, absorb nutrition from different civilizations, provide the people with spiritual support and comfort for thei

Ahmed Hassan Alhammadi, manager of the United Arab

Emirates Pavilion, hasn’t had time yet to visit the China Pavilion as he has been busy with his own pavilion.

“We will have more time later to have a walk in the park, and the China Pavilion will be our first stop for sure,” he said.

The International Pavilion, a venue for international horticultural exhibitions and competitions duri

ng the expo, has a public space with an overhang made of 94 structures representing flowers and umbrellas.

As the exhibition will also be held during the hottest days of the Beijing summer, these o

verhead structures will help reduce muggy conditions for crowds waiting in line for entry.

Using sustainable technologies, including natural ventilation, solar photovoltaics and rainw

ater recycling, the International Pavilion is also a green building with low energy consumption.

nitiative proves worth as welcome public good: China Da

Convening nearly 40 foreign leaders and representatives from more than 150 countries, th

e Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which opens in Beijing on Thursday, testifi

es to a growing aspiration for collaboration amid rising unilateralism and protectionism.

The conspicuous increase in the size of foreign participation com

pared with the inaugural forum two years ago corrobo

rates United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres’ earlier comment that the Belt and Road Initia

tive, like the UN Millennium Development Goals, is a public good for the entire world.

Since President Xi Jinping proposed the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road in 2013, some pe

ople have tried to persistently frame them as geopolitical tools. While such a label and subsequent fearmong

ering have stirred up worries in the ill-informed, they can’t hoodwink those with insight.

Gao cited data to rebut that view and urged AmCham Chi

ina to evaluate China’s market access and business environment for foreign investors in a “comprehensive, objective and fair” way.

The ministry’s data showed that US investment in China jumped 71.3 percent year-on-ye

ar in the first three months of this year. In 2018, US investment increased 7.7 percent year-on-year.

Gao said expansion of the investment figures fully demonstrates that US compan

ies continue to be optimistic about the market and accelerate the pace of investing in China.

Gao cited another survey published in February by AmCham China that showed that most US

companies with operations in China said they have continued to see their revenues grow there.

Gao said the ministry will maintain close contact with foreign enterprise

s and business associations, and continuously improve China’s business environment.
