At a daily news briefing, Chief Superintendent of Police P上海夜生活
ublic Relations Tse Chun-chung said two months of violent protests against the n

Daily police operations, even those unrelated to the protests, have上海夜生活

He cited a recent incident in which police officers were blocked by over 50 residents as they in

“We did what we could but we couldn’t really do too much. Some of them were pretty dire cases,” he said. “We were more

The Ministry of Education issued a guideline on Wednesday urging universities across the count
上海夜生活ry to have at least one brick-and-mortar campus b
ookstore that meets students’ needs and in accordance with the university’s own characteristics.
Those without a physical campus bookstore should set up one as soon as possible, the guideline said.上海夜生活品茶微信
The guideline comes as some physical campus bookstores are facing difficulties in operation, hit by ever-popular digital r
上海夜生活eading and online book purchases. It aims to better support the development of physical campus bookstores.
The guideline requires universities to integrate brick-and-mortar bookstores into the overall campus con
struction plan. Universities should offer support to the bookstores based on their actual situations, from providing an a上海夜生活品茶微信
ppropriate location, reducing and exempting venue rental and utility bills, to investing in equipment and facilities.
上海夜生活Campus bookstores should take advantage of the internet and
new technologies like artificial intelligence to expand online sales and delivery services v上海夜生活品茶微信
ia e-commerce platforms. They should also promote digitalization and intelligence upgrade, according to the guideline.

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

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

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

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.
