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

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.

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.

In the statement, the ASA urged Washington to hold off

The United States announced Wednesday that it would raise tariffs on $200

billion worth of Chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent, effective on May 10.

China on Wednesday expressed regrets over the planned measures in a statement, saying “Ch

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

Guangzhou continues crackdown on animal smuggling

uangzhou, provincial capital of Guangdong province, pledged to further cooperate with overseas

counterparts in the fight against endangered animal smuggling in the coming months, said a senior local customs officer.

“Top priorities will be given to big cases: major smuggling gangs, channels and networks,” said Zheng

Jun, deputy director of the Guangzhou customs anti-smuggling bureau, at a news conference in Guangzhou on Thursday.

According to Zheng, Guangzhou customs provided valuable and accurate information to its Malaysian count

Zheng reiterated that customs officers from his bure
