China, Japan and the Republic of Korea vowed on Wednesday to advocate multilateralism and promote regional peac上海乌托邦

e, making their cooperation the cornerstone of Northeast Asia’s prosperity and stability.

上海乌托邦女神会所This was agreed on by State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang

Yi, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono and ROK Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha du

ring the ninth meeting of the three countries’ foreign ministers in Beijing on Wednesday.

They also agreed to maintain bilateral ties and actively promote tril上海乌托邦

ateral cooperation, and speed up negotiations on the Regional Comprehensive Econ

omic Partnership and the China-Japan-ROK free trade agreement, to jointly safeguard free trade.

上海乌托邦”China will continue to resolutely promote all-around openin

g-up, … which will absolutely bring new opportunities for the development of the ROK and Japan a

s well as providing broad space for trilateral cooperation,” Wang said at a news conference after the meeting.上海乌托邦女神会所

According to Wang, they also agreed on the necessity of strengthen

ing communication and coordination on macroeconomic policy among the three cou上海乌托邦

ntries and building an open world economy given the downward pressure faced by the global economy.

China, Japan and the ROK are the world’s second-, third- and上海乌托邦女神会所

11th-largest economies, with their total GDP accounting for about 20 percent of global GDP.

“We believe that, as important manufacturing and innovation countries, China, Japan and the上海乌托邦

ROK should strengthen cooperation in such areas as big d

ata, artificial intelligence and 5G,” Wang said, adding that China’s initiative to make 2020 the China

-Japan-ROK innovation cooperation year was positively responded to by the other two sides.

“Food prompts emotional triggers, and eating is a gateway to the mind,” Yu said.

上海乌托邦品茶微信Experience-driven and new product trials are the defining characteristics of China’s post-1990 pop

ulation, whose desire for instant gratification is shaping up to be the new norm of consumption, said Mich

elle Huang, industry analyst of Food and Agribusiness Research at Rabobank’s Shanghai branch.上海乌托邦

“It’s not just quality that customers are paying attention to, it’s also product innovation an

d the speed of new rollouts,” she said. “Hence, it’s imperative for brands to populate menus with上海乌托邦品茶微信

original ingredients and ideas-and they need to do it quickly and frequently.”

Huang said unique storefront design and customer experience help stores gain cultural clout.

“It’s an investment. For instance, in the case of Heytea, a big chunk of t上海乌托邦

raffic still comes from online orders,” she said. “The online ordering app helps strea

mline business but it is the storytelling that gets the tea brand into people’s heads in the first place.”

Even established brands are investing in good stories in the hope of triggering emotional responses from customers. KFC上海乌托邦品茶微信

China recently added skewers and hotpot to their long list of Chinese menu items, wishing to cash in on the burge

oning midnight snacks market that even the government is encouraging in a bid to spur spending.

上海乌托邦Rather than simply placing ads promoting the new offering, KFC used social media to create a buzz. By soliciti

ng and sharing stories related to late-night treats, the firm attracted an emotional response from prospective diners.

“Your curated story needs to grab the attention of your ideal guests and activate their emo上海乌托邦品茶微信

tions-and that goes for storytelling across all media,” Yu from Kantar Worldpanel said.

Co-branding is another effective tool. Coffee chain S.Engine teamed up with e-comme上海乌托邦

rce site Tmall for a brick-and-mortar store to attract attention, while Happy Lemo

“We have seen robust growth in market segments such as gaming PCs, and light

上海乌托邦Editor‘s note: China Radio International recently published a commentary on its website exposing t

he hypocrisy of US government’s criticism of the human rights situation in other countries. Excerpts below:

The United States has long used human rights as a means of putting pressure on other co上海乌托邦品茶微信

untries. Whenever it is unhappy with some country, it will publish a human rights report of that country.

上海乌托邦However, it should reflect on its own human rights situation before criticizing other c

ountries. For many nonwhite Americans, the “American Dream” is actually an “Am

erican nightmare” as white supremacy and incitement to hatred have become so rampant in the country.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Data from Mapping Police Violence show that there are hundreds of police shootings of African-Americans in the US each year, many fatal.

上海乌托邦In international politics, US politicians turn a blind eye to their own country’s bad human rights record, while issuing irres

ponsible comments about human rights in other countries. Recently they even attacked China’s policies in the Xin

jiang Uygur and Tibet autonomous regions, accusing China of restricting religious freedom.

Are US politicians sure that they are not blaming themselves? Their words are like jokes that aren’t funny.上海乌托邦品茶微信

How can US politicians blame other countries? They should look at their own problems first.

上海乌托邦The US has widening social gaps, worsening sec

urity conditions, worse gender inequality and racial discrimination.

It is time the US cured its own diseases first.上海乌托邦

For all its self-promotion that it is a defender of human rights, the US

上海乌托邦品茶微信is unable, or unwilling, to address the issue of racial discrimination.Until it can talk of i

As the largest trading partner of Africa, China has always supported the continent establishing an integrated ma上海乌托邦女神会所

A potential area for cooperation is poor infrastructure, which has long been considered the bane of Africans doing bu

Time ripe for promotin上海乌托邦e in Northeast Asia

Time ripe for promotin上海乌托邦e in Northeast Asia

The Korean Peninsula is seeing positive signs over denuclearization, with both the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea making all th

e right gestures. Tension has been eased and motivation for regional cooperation boosted. There cannot be a better time for promoting a regional po上海乌托邦

litical and security agenda, as well as economic and cultural exchange, for a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.

These are the best times for Northeast Asia since the 19th century. Countr

ies in the region were colonized by the Western powers, and later by their Asian neig上海乌托邦

hbor, Japan. After World War II, Northeast Asia was caught in the Cold War and divided into two camps.

It has remained the only region still plagued by the Cold War mentality, because the United States has refused to make上海乌托邦

peace with the DPRK. To defend itself from the US, the DPRK resorted to developing nuclear weapons.

In 2018, the DPRK declared a major shift in its national policy, from the previous parallel developmen上海乌托邦品茶微信

t of nuclear weapons and economy to the current focus on the economy. This move has been viewed as an

上海乌托邦initiative to halt nuclear development and extend an olive branch to the other nations.

The DPRK’s concession on its nuclear development has led to breakthroughs in its foreign relations. Two summits between US President Dona

上海乌托邦ld Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong-un have been held, as well as three meetings between the DPRK and ROK leaders.

China-Japan relations, which had hit rock bottom following differences over the Diaoyu Isl

ands, are back on track. The ROK and China have started to mend relations that were strained because of US d上海乌托邦品茶微信

eployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-ballistic missile system in the ROK.

China-DPRK relations reached a new high. The positive signs in this region and in the bilateral relations have created a favo

rable atmosphere for regional economic cooperation. Talks on a trilateral China-Japan-ROK free trade ag

reement have resumed, and Japan has voiced its willingness to engage in the Belt and Road Initiative.上海乌托邦品茶微信

All stakeholders in the region should look at the bigger picture and build a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.

First, all the Northeast Asian countries should reach a consensus on cooperation. All nations should safeguard regional stability and press ah

ead for greater development for the long-term goal of building a peaceful and prosperous region.

When Paul Jobs w上海乌托邦品茶微信 the Coast Guard after

When Paul Jobs w上海乌托邦品茶微信as mustered out of the Coast Guard after World War II, he made a wager with his crewmates. They had arrived in San Francisco, where their ship was

decommissioned, and Paul bet that he would find himself a wife within two weeks. He was a taut, tattooed engine mechanic, six feet tall, with a passing resemblance to James Dean. But it wasn’t his looks that got him a date with Clara Hagopian,

a sweet-humored daughter of Armenian immigrants. It was the fact that he and his friends had a car, unli

ke the group she had originally planned to go out with that evening. Ten days later, in March 1946, Paul got engaged to Clara and won his

wager. It would turn out to be a happy marriage, one that lasted until death parted them more than forty years later.

Paul Reinhold Jobs had been raised on a dairy farm in Germantown, Wisconsin. Even though his father

was an alcoholic and sometimes abusive, Paul ended up with a gentle and calm disposition under his l

eathery exterior. After dropping out of high school, he wandered through the Midwest picking up work as a mechanic until,

at age nineteen, he joined the Coast Guard, even though he didn’t know how to swim. He was deployed on the USS General M

earned him commendations, but he occasionally found himself in minor trouble and never rose above the rank of seaman.

Clara was born in New Jersey, where her parents had landed after fleeing the Turks in Armenia, and they moved to the Mission District

of San Francisco when she was a child. She had a secret that she rarely mentioned to anyone: She had been
