Mooncakes stuffed with artificial meat will hit the ma
rket in China for the first time in September, Chongqing Morning Post reported.上海419品茶微信
The product was developed by a lab team from the Beijing Techn
上海419ology and Business University and vegan meat brand Starfield.
The first batch will be put on sale in Starfield outlets in Shenzhen, South China’s Guangdong province.
There are two kinds of artificial meat: One is vegan meat made main上海419品茶微信
ly from bean protein, the other is real meat grown from animal stem cells.
The artificial meat stuffed in these mooncakes is plant-based, which has low envi
上海419ronmental costs and can reduce wasting animal husbandry resources. It is also sui
table for people with high blood sugar, high blood pressure or high blood fats to eat, according to the researchers.
The artificial meat aims to imitate real animal meat上海419品茶微信
in five aspects: color, smell, taste, texture and sound, said Li Jian, who leads the u
niversity lab team. Many people don’t understand the sound component, Li said. “When we stir-fry sliced
上海419meat or deep-fry fish, the meat will produce an appetizing crackling sound. This sound is w
hat we want to achieve with our artificial meat, together with the other aspects,” he explained.
In an online vote launched by Weibo Technology, 34.4 percent of上海419品茶微信
respondents said they would like to try an artificial meat mooncake, while over 63.3 p
ercent said they would not want to try it or would take a wait-and-see approach.上海419
The technology of making artificial meat is more mature overseas. In Ch
ina, it has yet to make much headway and is ju
st a concept for vegetarian food, according to food industry analyst Zhu Danpeng.上海419品茶微信
Besides quality, price is also an important factor relating to the success of artificial meat in the market. The cost of pro
ducing artificial meat is not cheap at present and is even more expensive than that of ordinary meat products, said
Zhu. The cost will fall as artificial meat becomes more popular, though that will take some time, he added.

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree
上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.
In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦
nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.
“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers
上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in
ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com
munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦
According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi
bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.
Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h
上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”
The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w
ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦
“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w
orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l
ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C
hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信

As the story goes, once there was a cowherd, Niulang, who lived with his elder brother and sister-in-law. But she disl

The cow, however, was a former god who had violated imperial rules and was sent to earth in bovine form.
One day the cow led Niulang to a lake where fairies took a bath on ear

The two fell in love at first sight and were soon married. They had a son and dau

Yet in the eyes of the Jade Emperor, the Supreme Deity in Taoism, marriage betwee上海龙凤419女神会所

Niulang grew desperate when he discovered Zhinu had been taken back to heave

Most of the tunnels along the Lhasa-Nyingchi section of the Sich

The Bukamu Tunnel, one of the longest tunnels on the railway linking Lha上海夜网
sa and Nyingchi in Southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region, was completed on Fr
iday. With its completion, 96 percent of the tunnels on the Lhasa-Nyingchi section of the railway are finished.上海夜网
The 9,240-meter Bukamu Tunnel is located in Manling county of the reg

also the 37th tunnel to be completed for this section, leaving 10 other tunnels to be finished by the end of the year.上海夜网品茶微信
“Once construction began in October 2015, it took more than 300 workers 1,234 days to complete the tunnel,” said Y

Wang Shucheng, director of the project, said the tunnel’s depth reaches上海夜网
