She called for the park 上海夜生活o be overturned and

 for the park to compensate her loss. The case was heard on April 23 and the verdict is pending.

Since being disclosed by a number of Chinese media over the weekend, the case 上海夜生活

has sparked heated discussions on social media about whether it is reasonable for the world’s second largest W

alt Disney park to deny visitors the right to bring their own food. Some argue that the food and beverages supplied wi

 上海夜生活品茶微信thin the park are overpriced, making the motivation behind the policy appear dubious.

In an online poll by local media shobserver.com, 40 percent of the respon

dents said they don’t mind such a policy as long as there is no price difference between the food sold in and o

utside of the park. The poll attracted more than 3,000 people in less than six hours. 上海夜生活品茶微信

Shanghai Disneyland has banned outside food, alcohol and nonalcoholic beverages over

600 milliliters inside its park since November 2017, more than a year after its opening.

This is not the first time Shanghai Disneyland got sued over the p 上海夜生活

olicy. In June 2018, a lawyer from Suzhou, Jiangsu province, tried to take the theme pa

rk to court by accusing it of violating consumer rights. But the court turned down his appeal. 上海夜生活

Wang, together with three of her classmates and a mentor, approached the case

 上海夜生活品茶微信as a “service contract dispute”, calling the ban an unfair term in standard-form

consumer contracts. She also cited a statement by the Supreme Court, which said the policy of no outside food

and beverages in the catering industry is a “bullying term”, according to thePaper.cn. 上海夜生活

In one of its recent school journals, Wang and her three classmates, who are all majoring in

international law, said it’s the nature of legal practitioners to find fault with the status quo. 上海夜生活

In 2014, a college student in Yantai, Shandong province, won a lawsu

it against a local cinema that prohibited him from bringing his own drink. 上海夜生活品茶微信

Globally, three out of the six Disneyland parks are open to food and drinks from beyond

its services, while the three in Asia – Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai – carry a no-outside-food-and-drink policy.

 Council, announced the legislature’s temporary closing on Thursday, attributing it to the extensive damage to fire safety, security and communication system

s inside the council building. The chambers are to remain closed until October, when a new legislative year starts.上海夜生活

While the effect would be to move up the legislature’s summer recess by two weeks, Chan has said he believes that 20 to 30 of those 40 items

could have been moved out of committee and approved by the legislature before the recess, had the break-in not forced the closure.上海夜生活品茶微信

Leung visited the complex with members from the LegCo Commission-which oversees the secretarial affairs of the coun

cil-before making the announcement. The LegCo building went through a violent break-in on Monday ni

上海夜生活品茶微信ght, with hundreds of masked protesters occupying and vandalizing it for about three hours.

Leung said it is difficult to find a suitable alternative meeting venue, since a fully fun

ctioning council needs to be accommodated by over 1,000 staff members.

By Thursday evening, Hong Kong police had arrested 12 people acc上海夜生活

used of involvement in storming the LegCo chambers on Monday. Police said arrests cor

responded with such offenses as assaulting a police officer, unlawful assembly and possession of weapons.

上海夜生活品茶微信Among the 40 items to be scrutinized by the Finance Committee, about 20 deal with city infrastructure of different types, while othe

rs concern personnel appointments and government salary adjustments, according to a committee agenda list.

Chan said matters he considers to be of great urgency and linked to people’s lives include appropria上海夜生活品茶微信

tion extensions for several public hospitals and infrastructure projects for public housing.

Chan said he will soon write to Legislative Council members to see if they would agree to scrutinize some urge

nt livelihood issues through circulation of papers, replacing face-to-face meetings.上海夜生活

However, Chan said that if any member on the committee disagrees with such a speci

al arrangement, it can’t be used, according to procedural rules of the committee.上海夜生活品茶微信

In such a scenario, projects on public housing, for instance, would have to be delayed for at least four months, until late October, Chan said.

上海夜生活William Brown, an American professor at Xiamen University, Fujian province, set off

on Tuesday to retrace the route taken by him and his family in China 25 years ago.

In 1994, Brown, together with his wife and two sons, drove 40,000 kilometers around China for about three months in their Toyota van.上海夜生活品茶微信

Brown said the idea of retracing the journey has always been on his mind. During this revisit, he wants to see the chang

es that have taken place in China and in people’s life in the past 25 years. This would be very meaningful, Brown said.

This time, the 63-year-old is traveling without his wife and sons. But he is not alone. A fleet of four上海夜生活品茶微信

vehicles carry his team, including drivers and doctors. They might also take bullet trains in some occasions.

According to Brown, they will mostly follow the original route taken by his family 25 years ag

Britain’s May to agree departure after latest Brexit deal bid

 British Prime Minister Theresa May will set out a timetable for her departure in early June after the latest attempt to get her Br

exit deal approved by parliament, the chairman of a powerful Conservative committee said on Thursday.

Three years after Britain voted to leave the European Union, there is littl

e clarity over when, how and even whether Brexit will happen, prompting some in her party to c

all for a new approach to the country’s biggest policy shift in more than 40 years.

May has promised to step down after her Brexit deal is approved by lawma

kers. But many in her party want her to set out clearly when she will quit if the agr

eement is rejected for a fourth time, and others are demanding her immediate departure.

That China has responded to the US trade aggression in

such a restrained manner and conducted the talks with the utmost sincerity may have misled the US administration into thinking it has pushed Beijing onto the back foot.

But China’s responsible attitude and its desire to settle the dispute through consultations should not be viewed as signs of weakness.

Indeed, its stance could not be clearer: The US can persist in trying to coerce China into acce

pting its unreasonable demands, but no matter how hard it tries, China will not knuckle under.

China does not want to enter into a trade war with the US; but that does not mean it is afraid of one.

China agreed to hold trade talks with the US not because it feared what the

US might do or because it is worried about losing its trade with the US, but because it

genuinely believes that dialogue is the best way for countries to resolve their differences and find ways to benefit each ot

her, and because, as a responsible country, it always keeps the bigger picture and longer time frame in mind.

Some of those countries selected and submitted their

candidates to the space technology academy, which then reviewed their qualifications and selected who would be admitted.

“Whether the candidates can get this opportunity depends on two fac

tors. First, their English proficiency is supposed to be good enough to handle our c

ourses-all of them are taught in English,” Li said. “And second, an ideal candidate should have at least a bac

helor’s degree as well as background in or some knowledge of the space industry.”

Candidates who pass the qualification screening are also required to write a research pr

oposal and provide an endorsement document signed by the space authority of their nation, he said.

Li said the program does not charge the students or their countries any fees. Ins

tead, the Shenzhou Institute gives each student 3,000 yuan ($445) per month as a stipend.

Cui Yufu, a senior designer of small satellites at the academy and a professor at the insti

tute, said the program has some advantages that other domestic and foreign space organizations don’t offer.

The administration said it attaches importance to copyrigh

t protection and protects owners’ legal rights, and companies sh
