?Wednesday. Hong Kong Police have charged 44 people for rioting as of Tu
亚博足球app官网千花坊esday, following an illegal assembly held in Weste
rn District on Hong Kong Island on S Thus, Fan said it was not strange that some people from Taiwan were assisting and financing the violent protesters.
The city was in shock after masked radical pr
otesters escalated violence on July 1 by亚博足球app官网千花坊 storming into the city’s legislature and vandalizing the complex, resulting in an early recess of the legi
亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信slature and costing about HK$40 million to HK$
50 million ($5.1 million to $6.4 million) to repair. One of the lawless intruders, who took off his mask, was identified as a “pro-Hong Kong in
dependence” graduate of the University of Hong Kong and reportedly fled to the US through Taiwan.亚博足球app官网千花坊
It was also reported by the media that a large grou
p of violent rioters had fled to Taiwan to seek 亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信asylum shortly after July 1. Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen described them as “friends from Hong Kong” and sa
id the Taiwan authorities would consider their applications for asylum on humanitarian grounds.
Fan said the violent protesters, who were manipulated by external influences, intended to provoke and test the bottom li亚博足球app官网千花坊
ne of the central government by attacking the Legislative Council, the building of the Liaison Office of the C
亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信entral People’s Government in the HKSAR and defacing the national emblem.
The recent mayhem has also caused some to call into question liberal studies in the city.
In the wake of the violent attack on July 1, Tung Chee-hwa, vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese Peo
ple’s Political Consultative Conference, China’s top advisory body, called liberal studies a total failure.亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信
The design of liberal studies is flawed, Fan said, since there are no syllabuses or te
xtbooks. It is up to the teachers to prepare teaching materials for students, Fan said.
亚博足球app官网千花坊Currently, liberal studies is a compulsory subject and examinations also are required.
“If students want to make high marks, they must follow what the teachers teach them an
d adapt to the style of the examination papers. In case the liberal studies teachers have亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信
strong political inclinations, they will instill anti-China and anti-establishment ideas in the mind of students.”

Beijing will push forward its waste sorting le
gislation soon, and the newly revised regul亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信 ation will clarify an individual’s responsibility to sort domestic waste, a senior official said.
A municipal regulation in Shanghai covering
domestic waste management had taken effect on Monday and required every household and institution to sort亚博足球app官网千花坊 their trash into four categories: recyclable waste, hazardous waste, household food waste and residual waste.
Sun Xinjun, director of Beijing Municipal Commis
sion of Urban Management, said Beijing will follow suit soon without giving a possible date. “If the garbage is not sorted, the resident may face a fine of up to 200 yuan ($30),” he said亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信
, adding that the penalty will be no less than Shanghai’s garbage classification punishment.
Different from the four categories of separating trash in Shanghai, Beijing will use four other garbage classification sta
亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信dards: recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste, according to Sun.
Some departments and public institutions in the capital hav
e already implemented waste management. Beijing produces nearly 26,000 metric tons of do亚博足球app官网千花坊
mestic waste every day, and 29 garbage disposal terminal facilities are already operating at their full capacity.
In 2018, Beijing collected 9.3 million tons of household waste.亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信

The report said Wang paid Zhou 10,000 yuan ($1,400) in cash after committing the alleged molestation.
With his stage adaptation of Lao She’s classic novella This Life of Mine, actor-director Fang Xu continues to celebrate the work of the renowned author, Chen Nan reports.
亚博足球app官网千花坊He is a low-ranking policeman, born and raised in Beijing. He has waited for years to becom
e the head of his local police station but is replaced by a new policeman. He gets married but his wife runs away with his best friend. Soon after, he is sent to work in a small town, where he is later told that his son has died. It’s the story of Fuhai, the protagonist of This Life of Mine, a novella by renowned Chinese writer Lao She (1899-1966), which was published in 1937.亚博足球app官网千花坊
The novella chronicles the life story of Fuhai w
hich is set against the backdrop of the late Qi ng Dynasty (1644-1911). It was adapted into a monologue of the same name by actor-director Fang亚博足球app官网千花坊女神会所
Xu and premiered at the Central Acade
my of Drama, from where Fang graduated in 2011. Enlisting Shu Yi, the son of Lao She, as a consultant, Fang directed and performed the monologu
e himself, before embarking on a nationwide tour with around 60 shows after its debut.亚博足球app官网千花坊
To mark the 120th anniversary of Lao She’s birth this year, Fang decided to revive the
work for the stage on July 27 and 28 at the Capi
tal Theater in Beijing following a three-year hiatus. “Back in 2011, when I discussed the idea of turning This Life of Mine into a monologue, my colleagues were not really s亚博足球app官网千花坊女神会所
ure about the idea since it was a challenge to tell a man’s life story onstage within the space of 100 minutes all on my ow
n, “recalls the 53-year-old Beijing native. “But I was insistent and it turned out to be the right decision.亚博足球app官网千花坊女神会所
Fuhai tells his life story in a humorous way despite all the suffering and sorrow. He is hopeful about his life, but always ends u
p disappointed. Lao She is sympathetic toward Fuhai, as well as to the suffering of many other poor people livi
ng through those chaotic years,” Fang adds. “What makes this story interesting is that it still works today. When we look ba
ck at our own lives, we, like Fuhai, try to remain positive even when bad things happen.”
After watching Fang’s monologue at its premiere at the Central Academy of Drama in 2011, Shu Yi sa
id: “It’s one of the best adaptations of my father’s works. Fang’s adaptation is loyal to the spirit of his novella.”
Born as Shu Qingchun to a Manchu family in Beijing in 1899, Lao She is best known f
or his vivid descriptions of ordinary life, especially of poor people, which reflect the social reality of the time.
His precise depictions of local hutong life sparkle with his unique sense of humor and the raw dialect of the capital.
Lao She’s novels, including Rickshaw Boy and Four Generations Under One Roof, and his plays, such as Long Xu Gou (Dra
gon Beard Ditch) and Teahouse, have earned him the reputation as a literary master worldwide.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer
亚博足球app官网千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines
about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets. The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb亚博足球app官网千花坊
urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a disco
unt on future orders or additional pilot training and services. Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信
“Reimbursement isn’t a technical proble
m,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp
ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”亚博足球app官网千花坊
The 10,000-member pilots union for?South
west Airlines?said this month it will ask?B oeing ?for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.
亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept
2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”
亚博足球app官网千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa
rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c
ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.
Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi
a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.
Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo
