For the second year running, Chinese law enforcement officers will be jo

capital Zagreb, the historic walled city of Dubrovnik, tourist resort Zadar and Croatia’s biggest county, Lika-Senj.

Croatia has been running the Safe Tourism Season project since 2006 when officers from Hungary became the first forei上海千花坊品茶微信

In addition to the helpful presence of fellow Chinese officers on the s

treets, Chinese tourists will also be able to benefit from special telephone support line

In 2018, there were six officers from China and this year there will be eight.

上海千花坊品茶微信Croatia, which was part of the former Yugoslavia, is proving an increasingly popular destination for Chinese visitors.

In the first half, there has been a 53 percent year-on-year rise in the number of Chinese vis

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan上海千花坊品茶微信

achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F

rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.

The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open上海千花坊

ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.

This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl

e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.上海千花坊品茶微信

The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso

n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.上海千花坊品茶微信

It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi

t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all上海千花坊品茶微信

of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V

alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.

Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft

er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo

bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.

It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to

retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o

ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.

Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

Seeing how the illness was stressing his family, Yang decid

decided to learn a上海千花坊女神会所bout the stock market and finance, hopin

g to make money at home by trading on the market and improve his financial situa

tion. “No school would want to accept a broke, blind and disabled student,” he said.

In 2013, Yang heard a television commercial for the newly launched XuetangX, which only offered five classes at the

time. “But it was free, and from one of the best schools in the country. That gave me hope,” he said.

However, while signing up for classes was easy, the study process was anything but.

“I had to increase the font size of each character to that of an egg, an

Despite those difficulties, he completed about 15 courses and passed

every exam. He then put theory into practice by investing about 5,000 yuan in the stock mar

ket. After quadrupling his investment, he quit just before the market crashed in 2015.

actors — officials and experts said in response to a report from the Ministry of Commerce on Thursday.
