Regulations on the Administration of Domestic Waste in Shanghai came into effect on July 1, 2019.
娱乐地图女神会所This shows that Shanghai is carrying out the most ambitious gar
bage revolution in history, with the topic “Garbage Classification Revolution” in Shanghai beco
ming a major point of public discussion, attracting media attention at home and abroad.娱乐地图
1. Shanghai’s waste classification system: infrastructure and humanism
娱乐地图女神会所China has carried out bagged garbage collection since the mid-80s and in 1995 began exploring the classification of garbage.
The Ministry of Housing and Construction in 2000 selected eight maj
or cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou, to classify and recycle garbage.娱乐地图
After 19 years of this pilot, the expected results have not been achieved. Munici
娱乐地图女神会所pal garbage disposal has become a bottleneck problem restricting China’s development.
Shanghai is on par with cities like New York, London, Tokyo and Paris when consider
ing its economy and finance, shipping, trade, and science and technology industries.娱乐地图女神会所
Today incineration accounts for about 36 percent of Shanghai’s dome
s娱乐地图tic waste treatment, landfills about half,, and recycling less than 10 percent.
The figures for London are 40, 30, and nearly 30 percent, respectively, with Tokyo registering about 75, 3, and 20 percent.
Compared with these global first-tier cities, the gap in urban waste classificati娱乐地图女神会所
on in Shanghai is not only down to infrastructure, but the humanism of its residents.
2. Shanghai’s three later-developing advantages娱乐地图
After entering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
娱乐地图in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.
(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”娱乐地图女神会所
Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.
“Over the past 5,000 years, history has recorded the rise and fall of kingd
oms and dynasties. One hundred and fifty years ago, the West conquered the world but 娱乐地图女神会所
failed to conquer the hearts of Chinese. Now, Uncle Sam is seeking unilateralism by abandoning world ord
娱乐地图女神会所ers since World War II, but they encountered resistance all over the world, especially from China,” said Wang Yao
heng, one of 12 contestants in the annual English Speech Contest held by the College of Liberal Arts & Law of Da
lian Minzu University on June 28. He made no secret of his admiration of Chinese culture. 娱乐地图女神会所
“After being informed of the speech contest, I was very excited about it. As a Chinese youth, I long for
an opportunity to express my love for the culture of our motherland. In addition, this is also a figh 娱乐地图
t back to those who turn a deaf ear to both affairs at home and abroad. I want to tell them that we college students are no
t a “spoiled generation, we are not the kind of know-nothing-but-pleasure” generation, Wang said. 娱乐地图女神会所
The contestants were ethnically diverse, and expressed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride
娱乐地图for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past several decades. The recognition o
f Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic groups reache
d a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US. 娱乐地图
However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.
Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used t 娱乐地图女神会所
o be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.
Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue 娱乐地图
l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lo
nger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age. 娱乐地图女神会所
Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era an
d appealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke
ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.
Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western attitude in C
hina. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and digest
their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.
imb Mount Qomo娱乐地图品茶微信langma had long been a dream for Ma. She formed a squad in 201
4 but had to abandon plans to climb the mountain after a deadly avalanche, and a dev
astating earthquake in Nepal in 2015 put paid to her mountaineering ambitions that year too.
For the last six years, Ma has run an expedition company in partnership with Nepali climb
ers, and it was her company which organized this year’s expedition for the Chinese trio.
For her, the main objective of forming an all-women team was to chal
lenge perceptions and break down barriers for women in the largely male-dominated cl

langma this year, because of the limited window for climbing and different speeds of the team members.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba
cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.
Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,
national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.
“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h
ave strict tobacco control regulations and law enforcement, but in most areas in China suc
h regulations are absent,” he said. “The prevalence of tobacco has caused serious health conseque
revenue collected by the US government through hefty tariffs on Chinese imports, has been paid almost entirely by US importers.
“Some of these tariffs have been passed on to US consumers, such as those on washing machines, wh
ile others have been absorbed by importing firms through lower profit margins,” the research said.
Any further increase in tariffs will likely be passed through to consumers, it said.
China and the US, the world’s two largest economies, have been embroi
led in a tit-for-tat trade confrontation over the past few months. Washington threatened to fur
ther escalate a tariff war and increased tensions by tightening restrictions on Chinese companies.
Earlier this month, the US raised tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent, and China took coun
termeasures. Then the US administration listed about $300 billion more of Chinese goods for possible tariff hikes.

Zhang lives a life of simplicity, purity and indifference to fame and fortune, serving as a role
model for military officers, rank-and-file soldiers and veterans across the country, Xi said.

Reportedly, the United States administration is considering extending its attacks on
Chinese companies by blacklisting China’s largest surveillance equipment manufacturer Hikvision.
If so, Hikvision — which has about 20 percent of the global market share and has been the
leading player in the industry for seven consecutive years — will become the fourth Chinese company Wa

Unlike the previous three companies, which the US administrat
