Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis
上海夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.
According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon上海夜网女神会所
request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).
At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number
of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.
上海夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc
ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.
“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre上海夜网
e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.
Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc
上海夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.
Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu
lk-sized ones by 2021 in order to reduce plastic waste. The move will affect its entire hotel estate of 843,000 guest rooms.上海夜网
“It’s a big step in the right direction and will allow us to significantly reduce our waste footpri

hina National Gold Group (CNGG), the country’s leading gold producer上海龙凤1314品茶微信
, posted stable growth in gold output and sales during the first half of the year.
The company’s revenues amounted to 47.59 billion yuan ($7 billion) during the period, CNGG President Song Xin said.
上海龙凤1314品茶微信The company saw its gold output hit 19.5 tons in the first half, while sales reached 12.61 tons.
A number of external factors such as global economic uncertainties will lead to rising risk aversion amo

ish general election looming on 5 June, libertarian politician Joachim Olsen has found a cleve
上海后花园r way of winning his fellow Danes’ hearts and minds — by placing a campaign ad on Pornhub, a popular adult website.
Online banners by the Liberal Alliance seen by Pornhub users now feature the smiling 41-ye
ar old politician with the caption: “when you finish jacking off, vote for Jokke [affectionate for Joachim]!”上海后花园品茶微信
“We must be where the Danes are,” Joachim Olsen explained in an interview with the Danish daily Politiken.
Pornhub allows targeted ads based on the public’s interests. Olsen chose to place his ad in th
上海后花园e “soft” category, saying that he and his campaign “has tried to hit there, where Danes are the most”.
Olsen’s unorthodox campaigning has helped him bolster his profile, as his confes
sion gathered over 1,400 likes and tonnes of comments, positive and negative alike.
“Joachim, this is nothing less than brilliant!” one commenter wrote.上海后花园品茶微信
Even the Liberal Alliance’s political rivals appreciated the trick.
“The only thing that annoys me is that I wasn’t the first one to g
上海后花园et this done”, Anders Stjernholm of the green Alternative party admitted.
Others, however, were far less supportive. “Sick joke for people with a clownish attitude to democracy”, one person said.
41-year-old Joachim Olsen is a former world class shot putter. With ten上海后花园品茶微信
straight international finals, Olsen holds the longest string of appearances in finals at Oly
上海后花园mpic, World and European Championships among throwers. He was elected to the Danish Parliament in 2011.
At 7.5 percent of the vote, the libertarian Liberal Alliance is a junior party in上海后花园品茶微信

Which is the position FedEx finds itself in now.
It has claimed that it misdirected three of Chinese telecommuni上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦Yet investigation by the Chinese authorities has found these were not due to any
oversight but rather part of a deliberate pattern of behavior in which the US ex

And with the investigation still on-going, it is expected that more wrongdoings are yet to be revealed.
上海乌托邦Responding to China’s investigation on Friday, FedEx blamed the mishandling of the packages on the “unclear” rules of the US Com

上海千花坊”We don’t know what surprises Xiaoice will bring us, and the unpredictability is the charm that attracts us,” Xu said.
This is not the first time that Xiaoice has created something. Started

上海千花坊All these endeavors have helped accumulate more than 5 million followers on a Ch

Just like Xiaoice’s paintings, such AI-generated work is based on
machine-learning models of artificial neural networks that resemble the human brain and ne上海千花坊
rvous system, which can study input materials and produce output in their own right.
上海千花坊女神会所When it comes to AI painting, a neural network that goes by the acronym GAN plays a ke
y role. GAN, which stands for generative adversarial network, creates the image pixel
by pixel. Like any other artist or designer, it produces both broad strokes and fine details in layers.上海千花坊女神会所
But as pioneering AI-generated works appear around the world, the tech companies and art critics are also addressing the fundamental question of
上海千花坊whether the images, poems or songs produced by their networks can be called art at all.
Qiu Zhijie, an artist and professor at China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, said the answ

“When nobody can tell the difference between paintings genera
