That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in

e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa

rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog

ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.

The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦

es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad

opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig

ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh

ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信

e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU

上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro

pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.

Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦

and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur

opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信

support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

“So when we debate, when we advance, we are

able to grow the club, we are able to convince, we are able to progress,” Macron said.

Although EU diplomats said they still believed the bloc would eventually agree to the goal at a later

The two TV anchorwomen met “face to face” for the firs

t time after exchanging a flurry of Twitter messages over the past week, in which one challenged the other, and both agreed, to hav

Liu joined Regan’s show at Fox’s studio in New York via satellite from CGTN’s studio in Beijing.

“I would stress that trade wars are never good. They’re not good for anyone,” Regan said

on the show. “So I want to believe, Xin, I want to believe that something can get done.”

Regan, who addressed Liu on a first-name basis, contrasted what she said on her show two weeks ago, when she said th

The research was led by Harbin Veterinary Research Insti

While it is reasonable to assume that women most concern

d with their body shape are those who might be susceptible to obesity or other risks, studies indicate the vast majority of wo

men who engage in “fat talk” can be ranked “average” and “healthy” when it comes to their weight.

Zhang Ran, 28, a senior consultant in the Beijing office of multinational professio

nal services company Ernst & Young, said she was a “fat talker” when she was a college student.

“I felt comfortable when I discovered I was not the only one who was un

happy about my body shape. But then I began to understand that it has nothing to do

with a woman’s actual weight, but everything to do with how she sees herself,” she said.

She added that sharing her fear of being fat with others could trigger feelings of emotional security and being part of a great

er community. Even after she graduated and started a career, “fat talk”-and its related effects-did not stop.
