Dolls are no longer exclusively for children. Jiang Fan, a 22-year-old college graduate in Shanghai, became captivated by Moll
y dolls two years ago. Now, she has a collection of more than 70, and the number is climbing. 上海419品茶微信
These tiny toys, commonly known as blind box figures, come in sealed packaging and collectors have no idea which specific f
igure from a series they are buying. Many series even feature rare special figures or lucky-draw figures.
上海419品茶微信”It’s kind of like buying trading cards, except you don’t get a piec
e of cardboard, you get a cool toy,” Jiang said. “The sense of uncertainty intrigues me!”
Molly dolls are little dolls with curly yellow hair, big turquoise eyes and pouting lips. Each one costs 59 yuan ($8.5), which 上海419
means Jiang has to pay at least 708 yuan for an entire series of 12 figures. “My purse really hurts,” she joked.
Jiang is not the only “big kid “who is fascinated with the dolls. In April this year, the biennial 上海419品茶微信
Shanghai Toy Show attracted more than 100,000 fans of designer toys, just like Jiang.
The sponsor of the toy expo is Pop Mart, a leading designer toy company i
n China. Founded in 2010, the company sells eight categories of lifestyle commodities. But it pu 上海419

The company sold about 4 million Molly dolls in 2018 and expects to replicate the sales volume this y

上海419In Sanlitun, the heart of Beijing’s nightlife hub, at 11 pm on a sum
mer night, among the bustling crowds one store stands out. It is Sanlian Taofen Sa
nlitun Bookstore, a 24-hour bookstore that has become a landmark since it opened last year.上海419
The shop used to be a bar in a street reputed for its late-night carousing.
上海419品茶微信The night China Daily visited the shop, and alley that connects the north
ern and southern ends of Sanlitun Village was teeming with people, while in the 700-squ
are-meter bookstore with about 20,000 books, a couple of young people were sitting next to their laptops open.上海419
“We come here quite often,” says one of them, who lives nearby. “It’s th
e place I use most for finishing work each day. This is the only quiet place I can find arou
上海419品茶微信nd here where I do not need to worry about closing time, and you have the air conditioning in summer, too.”
Another of those in the shop, Zhao Xiaohan of Xiamen, Fujian province, who was on holi
day in Beijing, says: “I accidentally found this place while I was looking for a perch after a long day of trave上海419品茶微信
l. It’s a relaxing place, but many young people come in here after dinner time because it’s the summer holidays.”
上海419In addition to stocking the latest titles and best-sellers, Sanlian Taofen sells books in ancien
t Chinese and many works in English. To attract customers in an area that is popular with tourists it al
so sells souvenirs and ornaments representative of traditional Chinese culture.上海419品茶微信
Another tourist in the shop, who says she is from Moscow, was astounded by the shop’s ran
上海419ge of offerings. “I’ve never seen a bookstore like this. It’s got everything related to books you could ever want. Befo
re I came in I wasn’t even sure it was still open. I’ve never come across anything like this in Russia.”
A shop assistant says the design of the shop, on two floors, is inspired by Travelers a上海419品茶微信

and valid for three years, it added.Wang Sixin, a professor of internet law at Communication University of China, said
上海419the regulation shows the country’s efforts and determination to clean up cyberspace.
Wang said he regarded the regulation as an “upgraded version” of rules previously made by the adm上海419品茶微信
inistration, adding that the blacklist is urgently needed and necessary to improving the online environment.
上海419″In the past, the administration often launched campaigns agains
t online violations and named violators, but some website operators and service suppliers d
idn’t take it seriously, because the administrative punishments were not strong enough to affect their businesses,” he said.上海419品茶微信
“But the situation, I believe, will change, if the blacklist regulation, a bigger threat, takes effect.”
Zhu Wei, an associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law, applauded the regulation
上海419seeing it as a new step by the administration to manage cyberspace by rule of law and ensure honesty online.
“I’m glad that the current version identifies those who disregard business morality as ‘d
上海419品茶微信ishonest’, because attacks – such as posting untrue information between two internet businesses for c
ompetitive reasons – are often seen and not good for the business environment,” he added.
Wang said the blacklist is reasonable.
“When enterprises realize they could miss opportunities and lose out on developments上海419
in the next three years of this internet era, they will strictly abide by rules and regulate their operations,” he said.
上海419品茶微信Efforts to build an honest cyberspace have expanded in recent years. In December 2018, for instance, e-co
mmerce businesses were encouraged to make use of technologies that prevent dishonest behavior and improve overall online credibility.

better address the global economic problems. The G20, for insta
上海419nce, should strengthen its position as the core platform for global economic go
vernance. Established in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, it has become a vital platform promoting global eco上海419品茶微信
nomic governance, and played an important role in the reform of the global economic governance system.
上海419For example, the G20 helped the IMF and the World Bank transform themselves after th
e global financial crisis, so they could deal with the mid-to long-term global economic problems.
But this year the G20 faces more severe challenges. Although the G20 has provided a platfo上海419品茶微信
rm for major countries such as China and the United States to negotiate trade issues, some economies
might not see the group in the same light. The G20 should therefore help the major econo
上海419mies coordinate their trade policies, in order to strengthen global economic governance. The G20 should also
focus on devising rules that would help the major economies avoid conflicts and reach acceptable agreements.
The changing profile of the G20, however, is seen as not only上海419品茶微信
an opportunity but also a challenge for the major economies. While the G20 can help coo
rdinate the trade policies of the world’s 20 largest economies, it should further enhance its authority by working ou
上海419品茶微信t a global economic governance agenda, and suggesting possible ways to resolve burning economic issues.
Thanks to China’s unprecedented economic development and increa
sing contributions to global economic growth and governance, the international co
mmunity expects it to also help improve global economic governance so the world economy can achieve su上海419
stainable, healthy and vibrant growth. And despite rising trade protectionism and unilateralism, China remains c

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419
ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419
nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信
increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which
上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r
estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信
ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec
上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a

Moscow responded with counter-sanctions, which include
d impediments on the importation of some goods, including food, from Western countries.
However, Putin said the sanctions had a positive effect because they forced Russia to “switch
on its brains” and develop some sectors of its economy, including high technology.
Putin said that, after the introduction of sanctions, Russia launched an import substitution pr
ogram in the amount of 667 billion rubles (around 10.6 billion dollars) to develop lagging areas.
The Q&A session was Putin’s 17th. The first Direct Line with Vladimir Putin was held in la
