From the beginning 上海419inancing channels for

 developers have become limited, aiming to prevent too much capital flows into the property market.

Yan Yuejin, director of that Shanghai-based E-house China Research a 上海419

nd Development Institution, added that property developer bellwethers are proac

tively paying off their debts and controlling risks, instead of pursuing aggressive expansion. 上海419品茶微信

He regarded it as a positive sign that the market is on a track of more st

 上海419eady development and predicted the trend will continue in the second half of this year.

Sunac China Holdings Ltd, one of China’s five major property developers, expected the tightenin

g regulation to cause a gradual drop in land prices from the current relatively high level back to a reas 上海419

onable one. It will also further intensify the differentiation and the integration of the real estate industry.

“Sales and home prices will both be impacted, since people will not be hurried to buy a house,” Sunac Chairman S 上海419品茶微信

un Hongbin told the media when announcing the company’s interim results on Thursday in Hong Kong.

Sunac reported net profit of 10.29 billion yuan for the first half of 2019, up 61.7 percent compared with th

 上海419e same period one year earlier. Revenue increased 64.9 percent to 76.84 billion yuan year-on-year.

Sun said the company will continue to strictly control land investment in the seco

nd half so as to decrease the gearing ratio at the end of 2019 and maintain its long-term downward trend. 上海419品茶微信

Sunac replenished its land bank from January to April when the land market was at a momentary low level. After land pri

ces rebounded in May, the company stopped acquiring land through land auctions. 上海419

The developer now owns a total of 213 million square meters, of wh

ich more than 83 percent were located in first-tier and second-tier cities.

 上海419品茶微信The purchase of land in the first half made the company’s gearing ratio go up. The company said control of the gearing ra

tio will be one of the most important tasks for the management board from now on.

During an excavatio上海千花网 wooden slip was une

earthed from a well at a 2,200-year-old relic site in the mountainous

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所

rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.

The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d

上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.

The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on

e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所

It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be

cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy

上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn

asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.

After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

ow sharing some of their findings about the Qin era with a display of some 175 slips at A Tale of A S

mall Town, an exhibition at the National Museum of China in Beijing that runs through Sept 6.上海千花网

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

n Slips Museum near the relic site. Bamboo and wooden slips were the primary上海千花网女神会所

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).

Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网

8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep

itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所

own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.

Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

g that of the discovery of Qin’s Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in 1974.

“The housing policies were relatively loose in cities such as Pingdingshan,” he said.

“With Pingdingshan topping the list, other smaller cities also saw mild growth in
