“At present, no other trade hub in China is able to amass such a huge trove of data as we do with our system,” Ma said.

Between 2016 and the middle of this month, more than 2,400 trains had hauled goods acro

“Last year, about 50,000 metric tons of the tomato-based sauce were exported to Russia alone,” he said. Behi上海千花坊女神会所
nd him, heavy trucks loaded with multicolored containers were revving up to transfer goods onto an approaching freight train.
It can take as long as 50 days for the sauce to reach its farthest destination, Naples in Italy, by sea, setting off from Tianjin Port in North China.
“The express train services have cut the journey time to about 12 days, allowing Chinese agricultu

“We have already received positive feedback from wholesale buyers overseas, who have praised the rail service for its speed and low rate of da

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th
e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.
Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are
limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud
y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.
During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b
tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e
ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.

Degree holders turn their backs on mega cities for better lifestyle choices
The population of college graduates is projected to reach a record high this year, turning an
already tough job market into a pressure cooker and intensifying the scramble for talent nationwide.
To many new graduates, mega cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, Guangdong province, are less attractive beca
use of their high cost of living and greater peer pressure in the job market. And so the graduates are looking elsewhere.
The trend is changing the employment landscape in China, but it’s good news for sec
ond- and third-tier cities. The mega cities’ loss could be their gain in the brain drain game.

World-renowned architect Ieoh Ming Pei, commonly known as I.M. Pei,
has died at the age of 102 at his home in Manhattan, according to multiple reports on Thursday.
Praised as “one of the most revered architects in the world” by The New York Times, Pei has le
ft the world many of its most well-known architectural designs, among many other intangible heritages.
Pei’s modern designs and high-profile projects led him to be considered one of the most high-prof
ile architects of the 20th century, with the renovation of Paris’ Louvre Museum perhaps the most famo
us project he embarked on. He was also involved in the building of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
What Pei valued most in architecture, as he put it, was that it must “stand th
e test of time”. He also valued simplicity: “The simpler the solution, the more powerful it is,” he once said.
discussion among Chinese women－and not just at the office. Such discussions can be heard
everywhere, from high school classrooms to fitness studios, beauty salons and department stores.
But the issue is not just cause for concern in China. Obsessing over body shape has also emerged in Western countries over the past decade.
The term “fat talk” was coined by United States anthropologist Mimi Nic
hter and her team of researchers in 1994 after they observed the way girls in middle school
spoke about their body shapes－unexpectedly revealing that they invariably focused on the negatives.
Since then, numerous studies have detailed how pervasive “fat talk” has become among women of all ages.
A study published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly in 2011 found that an “overwhelm
ing majority of women”－93 percent－admitted to discussing the issue, with one-third of them doing so frequently.
