Danish political pundits fear serious repercussions for the Danish-US relationship in the future after US Pres上海夜生活

ident Donald Trump announced postponing his visit to Denmark in a Tweet Tuesday night.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksens has

earlier clearly refused to discuss a possible sale of Greenland to the United States.上海夜生活女神会所

“Greenland is not for sale,” said the prime minister,” Greenland is not Danish. Gre

enland is Greenlandic. I persistently hope that it is not something that is seriously meant.”

上海夜生活In a follow-up post on the tweet, Trump acknowledged the Danish prime minister’s “direct” rejection of his offer.

“….The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and

for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!”上海夜生活女神会所

Trump’s cancellation comes as a surprise to Lene Balleby, head of communications at the Da

nish Royal House which had “no comment” to make about the postponement.上海夜生活

“The situation may seem unrealistic, but no matter how you turn and turn it, it is a problem

for any sitting Danish government to get so skewed in the relationship with the c

上海夜生活ountry’s most important allies,” said Mirco Reimer-Elster, Denmark’s TV 2 US analyst.

Danish political pundits also fear the refusal to discuss the sale of Greenland with Tru

mp might have serious repercussions for the Danish-US relationship in the future.上海夜生活女神会所

“It’s not just about money. It is also about honor. If Trump succeeded in buying Greenland, he will then be included in the his

tory books. So Greenland means something to him,” says Svenning Dalgaard speaking to TV2.

Beijing’s ‘green lung’上海419ital breathing space

Covering 608 hectares, the park is home to 208 different wild animal species, including the yellow-bellie

d weasel and hedgehogs, along with numerous types of birds. Tourists visit the venue throughout the year.上海419

According to the Olympic Park Management Committee, protecting the ecos

上海419女神会所ystem is the top priority, and the park is designed to act as Beijing’s “green lung”-a

n area for leisure and entertainment that meets the increasing demand from local residents for green space.

When the park was completed in June 2008, the proportion of forest area上海419

in Beijing rose to 67 percent and carbon sequestration-a process by which carb

on dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and held in solid or liquid form-reached 4,763 metric tons per ye

上海419女神会所ar. The park releases 5,208 tons of oxygen annually, according to the management committee.

As dusk falls at the park, young men play basketball on outdoor courts, retirees dance in large grou

ps and families use the walkways to exercise. Lovers often sit along the trails, listening to guitar players.上海419

Since 2014, Zhang Yu, 40, an illustrator at a nature and geographical magazine in Beijing for young readers, has spent more than

上海419女神会所100 nights in the park during summer and autumn, searching with a flashlight for signs of hedgehogs.

He even considered bringing a tent to the park late at night to ensure he had sufficient time to track the creatures.

According to Zhang, untended land in the park provides the perfect hab上海419

itat for hedgehogs, and they usually rest and sleep on the edges of grassy areas.

Wang Zhou, 60, from Beijing, who has been a keen bird watcher since 1996, said, “W

上海419女神会所e are lucky to have Olympic Forest Park as one of the areas to observe birds’ behavior.”

Wang, who worked in finance before retiring, said she used to watch birds to ease the pressure of work.

“Every time I saw the birds, especially some new species that sudd上海419

enly appeared, I felt a sense of satisfaction and my spirits quickly rose,” she said.

Wang has also watched birds at other parks in Beijing, such as the Old Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven.上海419女神会所

“Compared with other places, Olympic Forest Park has bushy shrubs an

d untrimmed plants, providing a better environment for wildlife,” she said.

I don’t think it’s a particularly prescient movie, but one of the earlies

t great movies I saw was Alien. I saw it in 1979 – so I was 11 – in the film club at scho上海后花园女神会所

ol. And I was into spaceships at that time. So I watched it and got the full Ridley Scott.

上海后花园The one thing that always strikes me about science fiction in those days

is that they got the space flight part wrong. For example, even in 2001: A Space Odyssey, the

y absolutely overestimated space flight capability and yet they completely underestimated computing power, which is ve上海后花园女神会所

ry interesting. In this respect, cinematically, we have always overestimated

上海后花园our spacecraft, but always underestimated our communication devices and computing powers.

In terms of influence, there’s Arthur C Clarke’s Childhood’s End, which I

read when I was quite young. It had a massive influence on me. I just reread it; it’s rea上海后花园

lly a great book, but also strange and unusual, and there’s one great moment. Although it’s set in the mid-21st century, rou

上海后花园女神会所ghly, and the aliens have come down and mankind is about to perish under a different species, there’s a part where an ast

ronomer forgets the name of a star and he goes to a library to look it up in a book. And you think to yourself – of all t

It seems the Chinese invented and thought of just about everything prior to everybody else. What is China’s rela

If you’re talking historically, I don’t think I know. I would have to research that. Something

上海后花园女神会所like cosmology is a well-defined science as the large-scale study of the universe. So I wouldn’t say there’s o

osmology was to people living in the 15th century. There are different ways of studying nature. What I do know is th上海后花园

A novel way: Booksto上海千花坊re high in the clouds

by sh419aa on / 上海千花坊

Shanghai’s highest bookstore opened at 52nd floor of Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest skyscraper.

The 2,200-square-meter place named Duoyun Bookstore is 239 meters above the ground. Book lovers上海千花坊品茶微信

can enjoy reading beside clouds and have a bird’s-eye view of both sides of the Huangpu River.

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊

anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

Messages and signals had been going back and forth between the two countries for more than two years.

In an interview with Time magazine in October 1970, Nixon s上海会所品茶微信

aid: “If there is anything I want to do before I die, it is to go to China. If I don’t, I want my children to.”

In March 1971, Washington ended all restrictions on the use of US passports for travel to the Chinese mainland.上海会所

In April that year, Nixon terminated the 20-year embargo on trade between the two n

上海会所ations. He also ordered new steps to be taken to ease currency and shipping controls placed on China.

At a news conference on April 29, 1971, Nixon said he expected to visit China sometime in some capacity.

He added that he hoped to contribute to “a policy in which we can have a new relationship” with China.上海会所品茶微信

In August 1970, Chairman Mao Zedong invited the US writer Edgar Snow to Bei

上海会所jing, and on Oct 1, Mao placed Snow next to him on the reviewing stand at the pa

rade celebrating the 21st anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

In December that year, in an interview with Snow, Mao said China was c上海会所

onsidering allowing US citizens of all political persuasions to visit the country. Whe

n Snow asked whether a rightist such as Nixon, who represented the “monopoly capitalists”, would be allowed to v

isit, Mao said he would be happy to talk to Nixon, whether he came as president or as a tourist.上海会所

Snow’s interview appeared in Life magazine in April 1971.

上海会所品茶微信Nixon recalled in his book that it was now public knowledge that Mao would welcome him to Beijing.

China and the US moved closer to negotiations after largely not communicating with each other for 20 years.

According to Nixon’s memoirs, his administration atte上海会所

mpted to find an intermediary who could “pass word directly to Beijing”.

When Nixon visited Pakistan in July 1969, he told President Yahya Khan that the

U上海会所S had decided to try to normalize relations with China, and asked for his help as an intermediary.

The Pakistani leader said his country would do anything it could

to help, but added, “Old enemies do not easily become new friends.” When Khan visited th上海会所品茶微信

e White House in October 1970, Nixon used their meeting to establish the so-called Yahya Channel.

During a visit to Romania in 1969, Nixon also talked with Presid

ent Nicolae Ceausescu about the need for a new Sino-US relationship.上海会所品茶微信

Nixon’s toast at a dinner in Romania was the first occasion on which a US president had intentionally referred to Ch

ina by its official name, the People’s Republic of China, rather than Communist China.
