 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

roblems rather than distracting public attention by making a fuss over Zhao’s tweet.

The results of the elections for the European Parliame

nt are broadly in line with expectations. Although pro-European Union parties have won a majori

ty of the seats, the EP is more fragmented than before with traditional center-right and center-left par

ties losing seats to Liberals and Greens, and Euroskeptic parties increasing their vote share. This is likely to

make it more difficult for the EU to agree new trade deals and choose new leaders for EU institutions.

The heads of government of EU states met on Tuesday to discuss who will fill the top jobs.

The new EP and the EU leadership face a difficult international environment, especially on th

e trade front. The United States administration, already engaged in a tariff war with China, has its sights on the

EU as well, describing the bloc as “a foe”. The US has imposed 25 percent tariffs on European steel and aluminum an

d threatened to slap similar tariffs on European cars unless the EU opens up its agricultural market.

In Shanghai, Mi Jia Kao Cai Fan, a restaurant that serves a tra

 traditional local cuisine-rice with salted pork and greens, the Cai Fan in the name-has ga

ined a good reputation for its traditional flavors and its striking interior design.

Instead of rows of tables that can seat four or more people, the restaurant has just one long table

divided into individual booths by boards. When seated, diners face a small curtain-covered window, wh

ere the food is served anonymously. Each booth contains coat hangers and charging sockets.

“I wanted to let our customers know that a single person also needs to eat well, so I designed things this wa

Many diners have left supportive comments about the eatery on Dazhong Dianping, an online restaurant review platf

orm. “With one person, one booth, eating alone is no longer embarrassing. A bowl of fragrant rice with a bowl of re

freshing mung bean soup provides a very comfortable dinner here,” commented a customer called Kobayashi1214.

Shanghai hotels no longer provide disposables automatically

Hotels in Shanghai will no longer automatically provide disposable daily necessities such as toothbrush, comb and shaver f

rom July 1 as a regulation on household waste will come into effect in the city on the day, People’s Daily reported.

Around 4.8 billion guests booked into 440,000 hotels in China in 2017, as per data. More than 70 percent o

f soaps are thrown away after being used once, a survey shows. Calculated by weight, each hotel t

hrows away 2.5 kg disposable soaps every day and 440,000 hotels would throw away more than 400,000 tons

of soaps every year. If each ton of soaps costs 20,000 yuan, that would be 8 billion yuan worth of soap.

Apart from soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, shampoo and bath foam are often discarded

after one-time use. It’s not only a waste of money, but also a burden for environment as many articles are non-degradable.
