It’s a Sunday afternoon and Yang Haisong seems to be in a chipper mood. Under a blazing sun on a warm day in Beijing he sit

s on the side of a road smoking a cigarette. Yang, a founding member of the Chinese rock band P. K. 14 and its l

ead vocalist, is taking a break from activities in Free Sound, a record store in which he has been talking to fans about th

e band’s seventh studio album, What We Talk About When We Talk About His Name.

Yang hails from Nanjing, Jiangsu province, and it was there that P.K. 14 was formed nearly 22 y

ears ago before going on to become one of the most influential rock bands in China’s indie rock scene.

“I love record stores,” Yang, 46, says. “Of course listening to music

online through streaming services is incredibly conven

ient, but when I hold cassette tapes or vinyls in my hands I feel this connection with the music.”

The band’s latest album, released on Oct 14, 2018, was recorded in Be

rlin, and in addition to being streamed online, it was distributed on record and cassette.

Under the Common Market 2.0 proposal, the UK would lea

 leave the EU, but retain the free flow of goods and make contributions to the EU budget.

Meanwhile, MPs also voted 191 to 292 to turn down the idea to give lawmakers power to stop a no-deal Brexit.

They voted 280 to 292 to oppose the proposal that confirmative public vote will be conducted on Brexit.

MPs also voted 273 to 276 to reject the proposal to negotiate permanent customs union with the EU.

None of the Monday votes on the proposals are legally

binding, meaning it will be up to the British government if they act on the results.

Conservative MPs have been given a free vote, but cabinet ministers

will be told to abstain. The opposition Labour Party ordered its MPs to vote for the customs union.

Livestreaming to vitalize cross-border e-commerce

Zhang Ying, 32, a white-collar worker in Beijing, is a jewelry lover. She prefers watching lives

treaming videos via some cross-border e-commerce platforms to buy foreign products in her spare time.

“Pictorial representations are not exactly the right way to purchase commodities online, I had som

e problems as the products did not match up to the expectations promised on the onlaine platform advertisements.”

Zhang said daigou (overseas shoppers who buy foreign products for customers on the Chinese mainland) can dem

onstrate details of products like jewelry in accordance with what the buyer wants through the livestreaming method.

“I can take a good look at the design, material, color, size and even every angle of the jewelry. It feels like that I can pick out the

products on my own. After comparing various necklaces and bracelets, I can decide which one fits me the best.”

New cross-border bridge to boost China-Vietnam trade

The Second Beilun River Bridge opened to traffic on March 19. It connects the Chinese city of Dongxing with the Vietn

amese city of Mong Cai, two important trade cities along the border between the two countries.

The new bridge spans 549 meters across the border river between China and Vietnam and is built to the first-class high

way standard. Construction started in 2014 and was completed in late 2017, costing a total of 220 million yuan ($33 million).

The bridge will greatly alleviate traffic burden on the First Beilun River Bridge three kilometers away, whi

ch was previously the only means of shipping personnel and cargo to or from Dongxing Checkpoint.

Statistics from immigration authorities show that 12.19 million people and 47,05

6 vehicles passed over the old bridge in 2018, far beyond its maximum capacity.

The new bridge is now designated for freight vehicles, while the First Be

ilun River Bridge is reserved for personnel. This could save 30 minutes or more in custo

ms clearance time for each consignment, according to Huang Xiong, deputy chief of Dongxing Customs.

And while it was perhaps the most blatant attempt by the

  ministration to wade into a foreign contest, it was not the only time the President or his tea

m has weighed in on the domestic politics of other countries. From undercutting British Prime Minis

ter Theresa May during a visit to the United Kingdom to calling attention to protests against French President Emm

anuel Macron, Trump has repeatedly sought to influence the internal affairs of the US’s closest allies — in full public view.

  ”It’s not without precedent that United States leaders have said things that affect politics in other countries, but it is without prece

dent for them to do it as brazenly as Trump has done,” said Joseph Nye, the former dean of Harvard Uni

versity’s Kennedy School of Government. “His style and the degree to which he intervenes are both unprecedented.”

  American administrations have long sought to quietly sway the domestic politics of other countries, whether throu

gh covert influence campaigns or military support. But rarely has a US president so eagerly voiced his opinions or

taken steps to influence another country’s internal affairs, particularly among close US allies.

  Instead — even when an administration’s preferred outcome was widely known or assumed — the White Hou

se maintained an officially neutral stance. A country’s internal affairs were off-limits, at least as a matter of stated position.

He Jie secretly gave birth to a third child Resus

In the impression, the plot of He Jie still stays in the scene of “single mother falling in love again”.

After the divorce from Heziming, He Jie took two children with her and recorded a new song on the show.

How many hardships she had along the way, it is estimated that only she knew.

Although Heziming used to splash dirty water on Hejie, and said that her domestic violence was a slander of her derailment, making a scene, eating more ugly, the image of Hejie’s “brave and strong” single mother is even more distinct.

Later, it was the story of He Jie and Diao Lei, the drummer, who were photographed intimately and interactively. They freed themselves from the cap of “marital derailment” and admitted their new love generously. They both entered a new life together.

Recently, there have been new developments in the story. He Jie seems to be… The baby was born again.

The thing is, wake up, He Jie’s good friend, sent a micro-blog, the text is “That’s why I don’t like to chat with mothers.” Then there are two chat screenshots.

Look at the name of He Jie. The content of the chat between the two people is just an appointment between ordinary friends. However, he Jie’s reply is very bright! uuuuuuuuu

Wake up and say, “It’s all right. I’ll still go back to you for a drink.” He Jie replies, “I’ll drink with you for the first time after weaning”…

My dear, what is this amazing melon? He Jie after weaning? That is to say, He Jie is breastfeeding now? Push forward one more push, He Jie… Born again?

What is more confusing is that after reviving this microblog, it was deleted in seconds. Isn’t there no silver here?

You deleted it quickly, but my screenshots were faster. He Jie’s chat recordings were hot searched when he recovered.

Netizens in the comment area are all chatting and exploding, are asking: Who is this kid in the end?

Assuming that the story of “He Jie admits to Ai Diao Lei” before, he Jie is breastfeeding this child is likely to be Diao Lei!

Some netizens helped explain that their children were still drinking milk at the age of three or four. Perhaps the children of He Jie and He Ziming had not weaned yet.

Calculate ah, He Jie’s eldest son Qibao born in 2014, daughter Baomei born in 15 years, brother of 5 years old and sister of 4 years old, without weaning seems to be untenable!

Emmm… How to say that sentence, afraid of pigs like teammates ah! After waking up to participate in the game, it was unknown, and later because of fighting, he confused himself. Now, it’s better to sell his teammates to the hot search.

Hejie, where did your story go? Let’s make up for it soon!

Iron Emmett’s lads were well at it in the yard, blunted

Iron Emmett’s lads were well at it in the yard, blunted swords slamming into shields and ringing against one another.

Jon stopped to watch a moment as Horse pressed Hop-Robin back toward the well. Horse had the makings of a

good fighter, he decided. He was strong and getting stronger, and his instincts were sound. Hop-Robin was another tale. His clubfoot was bad enough, but he was

afraid of getting hit as well. Perhaps we can make a steward of him. The fight ended abruptly, with Hop-Robin on the ground.

“Well fought,” Jon said to Horse, “but you drop your shield too low when pressing an attack. You will want to correct that, or it is like to get you killed.”

“Yes, m’lord. I’ll keep it higher next time.” Horse pulled Hop-Robin to his feet, and the smaller boy made a clumsy bow.

A few of Stannis’s knights were sparring on the far side of the yard. King’s men in one corner and queen’s men in another,

Jon did not fail to note, but only a few. It’s too cold for most of them. As he strode past them, a booming voice called after him. “BOY! YOU THERE! BOY!”

Just beyond the ticket booth Father had had painted on awall in bright red letters the question:

DO YOU KNOW WHICH IS THE MOSTDANGEROUS ANIMAL IN THE ZOO?
An arrow pointed to a small curtain. There were so manyeager, curious hands

that pulled at the curtain that we had toreplace it regularly. Behind it was a mirror.

But I learned at my expense that Father believed there wasanother animal even more dangerous than us, and one thatwas extremely common, too,

found on every continent, in everyhabitat: the redoubtable species Animalus anthropomorphicus,the animal as seen through human eyes. We’ve all met

one,perhaps even owned one. It is an animal that is “cute”,”friendly”, “loving”, “devoted”, “merry”, “under-standing”.

 

Theseanimals lie in

ambush in every

toy store and

children’s zoo.
