The group also made up for over one-third of the tot

tal tourism consumption during the holidays in Fliggy, the online tourism platform of e-commerce giant Alibaba Gr

oup. Purchase of tourism products on Fliggy by people born after 2000 rose 500 percent on an annualized basis, it said.

Online hotel orders from younger parents, with children un

der the age of three, soared by 77 percent from a year ago during the four-day vacation.

“The younger generation, especially those born after 1990 and 1995, are m

ore used to ‘fingertip’ consumption and are fast becoming disrupters in the e-com

merce sector,” said Yang Qin, a business analyst from market consultancy CBNData.

According to a report from CBNData, people born in the 1990s and 1995s surpassed those bor

n in the 1980s to become the biggest spenders in the vertical industry of e-commerce consumption.

Ultralow emissions will be realized at all steel manufa

cturers in key regions, and in 80 percent of the sector nationwide by the end of 2025, under a guideline pub

lished by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment on Sunday. The guideline was drafted by the ministry and four other central gove

rnment bodies, including the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s economic planner.

The guideline sets different limits for various procedures in steel produ

ction. The hourly density of particulate matter in emissions should be below 10 mill

igrams per cubic meter in all procedures. As for sulfur dioxide and nitric oxide discharges, the limit can dif

fer. The hourly concentration of sulfur dioxide, for example, should be below 35 mg/cu m in emissions generated by core pr

ocesses, such as pellet roasting, but the standard is relaxed to 50 mg/cu m for other processes.

At least 80 percent of raw materials and products should be transported v

ia railway, ship and pipeline rather than road transportation, the guideline said.

China is the largest steel-maker in the world. The country produced 928 million metri

c tons of crude steel in 2018, representing 51.3 percent of the world’s output, the ministry said.

For those who want to trek further afield, a 12-day trip

p to Greece is available for students to savor local history.

Scholars specializing in Greek studies, archaeologists and artists offer professional guidance.

To ensure that they get the moChina’s burgeoning e-commerce sector received a “fresh” boost from

the longer-than-usual May Day holidays, with millennials and high-quality brands being the growth boosters.

Data from leading online food delivery platform Eleme showed that food orders by people born

after 1995 rose by 112.4 percent during the holidays, compared with the same period a year ago.

st out of the study tours, students are asked to do relevant reading before the trip and then write a paper or deliver a ph

otography project afterward to demonstrate what they have learned, according to Zhang.

Immersion class, such as studying ancient Greek opera or replicating a pottery antique, can also be arranged.

“The idea is to ensure that children actually learn something,” Zhang says.

He ended up not needing to. The agency was able to sell off the thirty-second time slot, but in an act

of passive defiance it didn’t sell the longer one. “We told them that we couldn’t sell the sixty-second slot,

though in truth we didn’t try,” recalled Lee Clow. Sculley, perhaps to avoid a showdown with either the

board or Jobs, decided to let Bill Campbell, the head of marketing, figure out what to do. Campbell,

a former football coach, decided to throw the long bomb. “I think we ought to go for it,” he told his team.

a bushy beard, wild hair, goofy grin, and twinkling eyes named Lee Clow, who was the

creative director of the agency’s office in the Venice Beach section of Los Angeles. Clow

was savvy and fun, in a laid-back yet focused way, and he forged a bond

with Jobs that would last three decades.

Clow and two of his team, the copywriter Steve Hayden and the art director Brent Thomas,

had been toying with a tagline that played off the George Orwell novel: “Why 1984 won’t be like

1984.” Jobs loved it, and asked them to develop it for the Macintosh launch. So they put together

a storyboard for a sixty-second ad that would look like a scene from a sci-fi movie. It featured a

rebellious young woman outrunning the Orwellian thought police and throwing a

sledgehammer into a screen showing a mind-controlling speech by Big Brother.

The concept captured the zeitgeist of the personal computer revolution. Many young people,

especially those in the counterculture, had viewed computers as instruments that could be used by

Orwellian governments and giant corporations to sap individuality. But by the end of the 1970s,

they were also being seen as potential tools for personal empowerment. The ad cast Macintosh

as a warrior for the latter cause—a cool, rebellious, and heroic company that was the only thing

corporation’s plan for

world domination

and total mind control.

Tai-yü bowed to each one of them (with folded arms).

Tai-yü bowed to each one of them (with folded arms).

“Ask the young ladies in,” dowager lady Chia went on to say; “tell them a guest from afar has just arrived, one who comes for the first time; and that they may not go to their lessons.”

The servants with one voice signified their obedience, and two of them speedily went to carry out her orders.

Not long after three nurses and five or six waiting-maids were seen ushering in three young ladies. The first was somewhat plump in figure and of medium height; her cheeks had a congealed appearance, like a fresh lichee; her nose was glossy like goose fat. She was gracious, demure, and lovable to look at.

The second had sloping shoulders, and a slim waist. Tall and slender was she in stature, with a face like the egg of a goose. Her eyes so beautiful, with their well-curved eyebrows, possessed in their gaze a bewitching flash. At the very sight of her refined and elegant manners all idea of vulgarity was forgotten.

The third was below the medium size, and her mien was, as yet, childlike.

In their head ornaments, jewelry, and dress, the get-up of the three young ladies was identical.

Tai-yü speedily rose to greet them and to exchange salutations. After they had made each other’s acquaintance, they all took a seat, whereupon the servants brought the tea. Their conversation was confined to Tai-yü‘s mother,— how she had fallen ill, what doctors had attended her, what medicines had been given her, and how she had been buried and mourned; and dowager lady Chia was naturally again in great anguish.

“Of all my daughters,” she remarked,

“your mother was the one I loved best, and now in a twinkle,

she has passed away, before me too,

and I’ve not been able to so much as see her face.

How can this not make my heart sore-stricken?”
