To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re

 上海品茶微信solution screens is part of the reason why premium film screenings are welcome.

“We saw strong demand in blockbusters, not only those (from) Hollywood but also Ch

inese-language films, which are increasingly welcomed by Chinese audiences.” 上海品茶微信女神会所

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv

 上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.

“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the

reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信

ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.

 上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.

Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa

id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信

s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.

“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin

ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

A rough industry estimate from entertainment analysi

 上海品茶微信s website Dengta under online ticketing platform Taopiaopiao show

s cinema visits slumped by nearly 100 million to around 807 million in the first half of this year.

“On one hand, rising ticket prices prevent many people from visiting cinema 上海品茶微信女神会所

s, as cinemas stopped selling cheap tickets at 9.9 yuan or 19.9 yuan,” Chen said.

Foreign investors believe that China has enough policy

icy tools to offset short-term downside pressure, while the financial risks are under control as the country’s debt level has shown signs of stabilizing, Zhang said.

China’s overall debt-to-GDP ratio had dropped to 249.4 percent

by the end of 2018, 1.5 percentage points lower than a year earlier, according to the PBOC.

If trade tensions escalate further, more opening-up policies in the sectors of medical

care and education will help boost global investors’ confidence in the Chinese economy, Zhang added.

By hiking the tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from 10 percent t

o 25 percent just when it seemed the China-US trade talks would achieve a bre

akthrough, the United States has not only intensified the trade dispute but also ensured both sides take a knock.

What players will be chosen by Lippi remains uncertain, but seeking younger talent will be a priority. Lippi led the oldest

team at the Asian Cup this year, with an average age of 30.2 years, and many veterans will retire before the next World Cup.

Lippi’s best shot now is Espanyol striker Wu Lei, who joined La Liga

immediately after the Asian Cup and became the first Chinese player to score in the league.

Mired in Brexit deadlock and forced to delay Britain’s M

 March 29 exit from the EU, May’s Conservatives suffered major losses in local election

s this month and are trailing in opinion polls before May 23 European Parliament elections.

With Labour and Brexit-supporting rebels in the Conservatives p

lanning to vote against her deal, it is unlikely to be approved as things stand.

Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers were unimpressed with May’s failure to set a firm date to quit. One, who declined to be na

med, described it as “yet further procrastination which is causing appalling damage to the Conservative Party.”

Another, Andrew Bridgen, said May was “an increasingly beleaguered and isolated prim

e minister who is desperate to salvage something from her premiership and is prepared to drive thro

ugh an agreement that would fatally hamstring any future prime minister in negotiations with the EU.”

The traditional family model of the man bringing hom

the bacon and the woman looking after the family doesn’t seem to have changed much eve

n today. As a result, Chinese mothers still shoulder most of the responsibilities of raising kids.

In the absence of fathers, mothers are more likely to pay greater attention to their kids and their

education. This could not only prevent the children from learning life skills, but also make them bur

dens for their mothers. And the greater the burden they become, the more their mothers would be stressed out.

Yet such anxiety could be easily shared by, if not transferred to, other family members. A highly emotional yet anxious moth

er is more likely to make a wrong decision about her child’s education, which in turn could have a negative imp

act not only on the child’s healthy growth but also the health of the mother and the husband-wife relationship.
