Zeng Renzhen creates 亚博体育官方app后花园eries of paintings which

Despite having six books of his paintings published, he regards himself first and foremost as an architect. These past ye

ars of painting have been his own way of researching the relationship between people and space.亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所

“I have a clear goal in my painting, which is to ponder the relationship between humans and nature, between human activ

亚博体育官方app后花园ities and space… and to address the professional topics of architectural design that I am interested in,” Zeng says.

Born in 1982, Zeng grew up in the small city of Yongzhou, Hunan province. Possessing a delic

ate constitution as a child, Zeng spent much of his youth sitting quietly on his own, drawing and reading.亚博体育官方app后花园

In middle school art class, he found himself captivated by the works of Fan Kuan, a Chinese painter from the Song D

ynasty (960-1279), whose landscape paintings introduced to him a previously hidden view of nature.

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所He then immersed himself in landscape painting, which led him to be

come increasingly passionate about the art form toward the end of high school.

Without having received any formal training, he chose to study architecture, a disciplin亚博体育官方app后花园

e that requires basic drawing skills, at Chang’an University in Shaanxi province’s capital Xi’an.

In this historical city, he spent four years researching the old residential areas and studying the living conditions in the local co

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所mmunities, fostering a respect for tradition and a consideration for human wellbeing.

Having graduated in 2007, he worked at an architectural firm for seven years, during which ti

me he attended an architecture course at Peking University and discovered a vocation that connected hi亚博体育官方app后花园

s love for landscape with his architecture expertise-classical garden design, a

discipline which he says embodies the ultimate consideration for the human living environment.

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所In 2014, he resigned from his job to go on a two-month field study to Jiangnan, a re

gion south of the Yangtze River that is home to China’s most renowned classical gardens.

The war of words and 亚博体育官方app后花园ing between Washingt

gton and Moscow over the INF Treaty, the first such agreement to reduce the two countries’ nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, has left the treaty hanging in limbo.

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所It goes without saying that the exit of both signatories from the tre

aty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stabili

ty of the world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Trea亚博体育官方app后花园

ty is the US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US dispensation assumed offi

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所ce in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and me

chanisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.

Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving亚博体育官方app后花园

bilateral relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their face

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side

s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the

ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.亚博体育官方app后花园

Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev

elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所

eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuelli

亚博体育官方app后花园ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major

powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.What is especi

ally surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discussions on certain intern亚博体育官方app后花园

ational issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has play

亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所ed an important role in improving international relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding glo

bal strategic balance and stability, and therefore remains very much relevant and sig

nificant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the US’ unilateral w

ithdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d

anization’s s亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所ystems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opport亚博体育官方app后花园

unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所

ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell

Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 milli亚博体育官方app后花园女神会所

markets place hopes 亚博体育官方app后花园rade talks with China

After stocks plummeted last month, US markets are surging once again, on hopes of restarting trade talks with China.

亚博体育官方app后花园May this year was one of the worst months of May for US stocks in several years, with US markets seeing wild swings amid the US-initiated trade dispute with China.

But in a sudden about-face, stocks skyrocketed this week. The main rise came Tuesday after US President Donald Trump hel亚博体育官方app后花园

d a telephone conversation with Chinese President Xi Jinping saying looking forward to meeting at this month’s G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

The news caused the US Dow Jones Industrial Average to surge nearly 400 points. Stocks亚博体育官方app后花园品茶微信

continued to rise on Wednesday, on signals from the US Federal Reserve that it could cut interest rates later.

亚博体育官方app后花园James M. Roberts, an economist at the Heritage Foundation, told Xinhua that the news about the two presidents’ meeting next week is “certainly encouraging.”

“It is not surprising that markets have reacted favorably,” Roberts said. “Assumin

g that the meeting stays on track, markets should continue to view the upcoming G20 hopefully.”亚博体育官方app后花园品茶微信

Desmond Lachman, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told Xinhua that markets were buoyed Tuesday

by Trump’s announcement that talks with China would restart, as well as by European Central Bank (ECB) Preside

nt Mario Draghi’s indication that he might soon respond to European economic weakening by restarting the ECB’s bond buying program.亚博体育官方app后花园品茶微信

That gave the impetus for global bond yields to decline and stocks to rally, he said.

Experts said that markets would be pleased by an agreement by both sides to continue talking.

“Both President Trump and President Xi would benefit from a favorable outcome to their bilateral meeting and to the G20 overall,” Roberts said.亚博体育官方app后花园品茶微信

Chief trade negotiators of China and the United States will communicate in line with the

instructions made by the two heads of state, China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday.

Negotiating teams from both sides will earnestly implement the instructions and make preparations fo

r the meeting of the two heads of state during the G20 Summit in Osaka, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a news conference.

“We believe both sides can find ways to properly solve their problems through equitable dialogue and accommodating each other’s legitimate concerns,” he said.

Beijing and Washington had been hammering out a trade deal, but the talks stalled last month after the Trump administration hiked tariffs on $200 bi

llion worth of Chinese goods and threatened to impose further tariffs on additional Chinese imports.

Lachman said US markets would be kept moving if Trump took further US import tariffs on China off the table at the G20 meeting.

Wei Jianguo, vice-president of the China Center for Inte

rnati亚博体育官方app后花园onal Economic Exchanges, warned that although China would not be happy to see the so-called trade war expand into the fields of finance, tech

nology or geopolitics, the country must be prepared for all kinds of confrontations.

“The US has repeatedly violated the multilateral mechanism based on World Trade Organizat

ion rules. Due to the influence of hard-line hawks, it is likely to continue the trade war,” he said.

China has less motivation to further stimulate economic growth, but the government needs t

o search for more methods to control debt and reduce default risks, according to officials and economists.

China’s macroeconomic leverage ratio, or the total debt-to-GDP proportion, rose slightly in the first quarter, but the over

all leverage level still remained stable, Huang Xiaolong, deputy head of the Financial Stability Bureau of the Peo

ple’s Bank of China, the central bank, said at a media conference on Wednesday.

authority and efficacy of the WTO. As a consequence, the organization is facing an unprecedented crisis.

China suggested necessary reforms of the WTO be made so as to overcome the crisis, strengthen its auth
