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.

woman receive professional yoga training in Binzhou

On a warm spring afternoon, 28-year-old Ye Xiaoxian keeps her eyes glued to her comp

uter screen as she chats with female co-workers in an office in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

Her concentration is only broken when a colleague offers a plate of snacks.

“I’ve already eaten a chicken drumstick, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of potato chips, half a bowl of white rice and som

e walnuts. My thighs will swell if I eat these snacks,” Ye said, reluctantly pushing the plate away.

Her colleague, pinching Ye lightly on the forearm, replied: “Come on, you are not fat at all. I am the elephant in the room.”

But Ye, popping a slice of pineapple into her mouth, responded, “No, I don’t e

ven feel like eating dinner tonight and I really should renew my gym membership.”

Uber’s shares ended the day down 7.6% at $41.57, even as t

 the S&P 500 reversed losses to end in positive territory. Only about a fifth of IPOs have

ended their first day of trading in the red in the last two years, according to Dealogic data.

Uber priced its IPO on Thursday at the low end of its targeted ra

nge, hoping that approach would spare it the trading plunge suffered by Lyft.

Lyft ended down 6.9% on Friday, and is 28 percent below its IPO price.

Still, the world’s largest ride-hailing company appeared to generate m

ore interest from mom-and-pop investors than Lyft. Retail investors at TD Am

eritrade executed more trades in the first ten minutes of Uber’s debut than in Lyft’s first 2-1/2 hours.

Uber had already lowered its valuation expectations twice in the last two months to address investor concerns over its mounting losses.

Lovren celebrates scoring their fourth goal during the Ch

England — Liverpool delivered the greatest in a long line of famous comebacks to reach the Champions Leagu

e final on Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Divock Origi scored twice, either side of goals by halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum early in the second half, to send Liverp

ool into its second straight final and set up a meeting with either Ajax or Tottenham on June 1.

It was only the third time in the history of the European Cup that a team ca

me from three goals down after the first leg of a semifinal and progressed to the final, afte

r Panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona in 1985-86. No team had done it in the Champions League era.

The comeback was all the more unlikely given that Liverpool was witho

ut two of its first-choice forward line, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Instead, it was Origi — the scorer of the crucial fourth goal in the 79th minute — who made the seemingly impossible, possi

ble. And it needed some remarkable ingenuity from Trent Alexander-Arnold, who pretended to walk away from taking a co

rner before quickly spinning round and sending in a low cross as Barcelona’s players dawdled. Origi swept in the finish.

All of my knowledge and expertise in the space field

 was about ground operations, such as telemetry, tracking and command of spacecraft.

“I want to study satellites. I want to learn and work on communications satellites operating in low Earth orbit, because no

w we have a communications satellite in geosynchronous orbit, and remote-sensing satellites in low Earth orbit,” he said.

“I want to learn how to combine these technologies and do some research here in Beijing, s

o when I come back to my country I can help to develop our own satellite technology,” he added.

Each of Venezuela’s three satellites-one communication and two r

emote-sensing satellites-was designed, built and launched by China.

The Beijing-based China Academy of Space Technology, a subsidiary of State-owned spa

ce giant China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, is a major developer of satellites and spaceships in China.

If you come in to the shore to deliver, it takes at least

an hour – an hour we lose on the water. The thing about the fish

is that once you find them, you’ve got to stay on top of them,” Berry said.

Irwin said that every day the fish seem to prefer different temperatures and water depths. He is us

ing all the skills he has learned throughout the world to find better ways to fish for carp in Kentucky.

The half-brothers are not the only ones lured to the state by Asian car

p. About a year ago, Lin Jiantong and his wife Jiang Huiying moved there from Atlanta to fish the species.

In Atlanta, they were employed as kitchen workers by Chinese restaurants. After le

arning they could make a living from fishing, Lin had no hesitation in trying a new lifestyle.

Growing up along the coast in Fujian province, he knows a thing or two about fishing.

diversified needs of sports fans, which is conducive to soci

al and economic development. Notably, the General Admi

sports industry. For instance, some departments have made efforts to optimize their resources by building m

ore winter sports venues so they can encourage more people to take up winter sports.
