The US’ monetary hegemony is itself a big impedim

heated the US stock market gets, the more serious the Dutch disease will become. And, ironically, the US leader is k

Besides, the US administration cannot launch large-scale infrastructure construction projects, significantly red

The US’ trade deficit stems from its extremely low national saving

Pam Marsden, head of production for Sony Pictures Anim

mation, also considers characterization as a crucial element to developing successful animated works.

The studio’s 2018 smash hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won a string of awards, including the 91st Os

cars’ best animated feature, thanks to its unique look that combines computer animation and traditional hand-drawn techniques.

Speaking of developing a formula for making hit movies, Marsden says: “It begin

s with characters. If you can create a character that is beloved, charming and appealing, and touches the hearts of an audie

nce, you are well on your way to creating a successful animated movie that can cross all borders.”

If Hollywood’s experience leads it to focus primarily on the characters they create, Japanese director Hay

ato Date says he believes that voice-over dialogue is another important factor affecting the success of any animated work.

Best known for the manga-adapted animated TV series Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden, Date r

eveals that he has developed a particular method which gathers all the voice artists together to record the scenes.

 she buys cosmetics, handbags and clothing from top brands through cross-border e-commer

ce platforms every month. Sometimes, she drives for one to two hours to neighboring bigger cities, such a

s Wuxi in Jiangsu, and Shanghai for shopping. She also plans two or three overseas trips every year.

“I don’t have any housing or car loans, and don’t have to worry about daily costs, as I live with my parents. I usually spend all my sa

lary on daily consumption and entertainment, which is quite common for people such as myself,” she said.

Jason Yu, managing director of Kantar Worldpanel, said small-to

wn youths look to the internet for the latest information, products and lifest

yles. The gap between young people in lower-tier cities and those in metropolises has narrowed greatly.

“Small-town youths now have broader horizons, are well informed, and some have even started to lead ‘avant-garde’ lifestyles,” he said.

Turntables are designed to appeal to a contemporary lifestyle that is simple and sustainable, Lin says.

His company opened a vinyl store, called 33-rpm, in Shenzhen on March 21

, and he has ambitious plans to have outlets in about 200 Chinese cities within the next two years.

“When you look at convenience, portability, and all those things,

vinyl doesn’t make sense,” he says. “But it is rooted in a passion or love for music. Some people

buy vinyls but they don’t necessarily listen to them. They’re collecting these things like works of art.”

the two-way eight-lane tunnel will be the largest and widest in the worl

d upon completion. Its tunnel will be 1.2 meters longer and two lanes wider than the HZMB.

Yang said the immersed tunnel used the steel shell tube, the first of its kind in China, and there were many other new struct

ures and technologies, which brought lots of challenges, such as lack of technical standards in the country.

He said the tunnel will have 32 tubes and each tube will have about 10,000 tons of steel, 165 met

ers long and with a displacement of about 80,000 tons. Each tube has more than 2,500 separate chambers.

After tubes are built in factory, they are floated to th

e construction site, and the most difficult process is to sink and connect, Yan

g said. His company has invited experts to deliberate in rounds on the cement pouring, sealing and connection.

The Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge is another important infrastructure project of the country’s 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020).

The construction started on Dec 29, 2016. It is expected to put into operation in 2024.
