To mark the inauguration of ABC Air's new A330-200 service, the airline is giving their in-flight service a facelift as well. In the case of the very special bone china service offered in Premium XYZ and First Class, the plans have been a full year in the making. After lengthy consultations between designers and craftsmen, the result is an exquisite new look.
In selecting the material for place settings, in order to provide the high-class atmosphere our Premium XYZ customers deserve, the decision was made to continue providing bone china service, as always, with an emphasis on meticulous taste and beauty. As well as possessing the excellent insulating characteristics of bone china, which help to keep food warm longer, each place setting also features a beautiful classic lotus motif, which is not only food for the eyes, but also adds to the overall ambiance of elegance.
Each place setting includes a dinner plate, side plate, bowl, coffee cup and teacup, and is complemented with genuine crystal water glasses, juice glasses and various styles of wine glasses. The glassware is further enhanced with hand-engraved lotus flowers which serve to soften the visual line of the glassware and add to the overall design impact. You will certainly enjoy not only the fine dining, but also appreciate the highly artistic china and glassware on which the culinary offerings are tastefully presented.

Translation - English Third is the driving effect of trade and the stimulation of investment on policy. Mutual investment will spur faster growth. Hong Kong's service sector has somewhat stronger competitiveness, and currently, on a level playing field, Hong Kong service sector enterprises investing in China already account for almost one-half of foreign capital investment in the service sector in China. Under the framework of the "Arrangement," with further liberalization to the scope of investment in China's service sector, companies in the service sector in Hong Kong will have more opportunities to make money in China. This increase in investment will also greatly stimulate competition in the Chinese service sector and raise the overall efficiency and competitiveness of the service sector in both areas. On the other hand, since Hong Kong has always had liberal and free policies in effect with regard to foreign investment, the "Agreement" might not act as a spur on the direct factors of Chinese company investment in Hong Kong. However, with the promotion of economic integration between the two areas, Hong Kong may become a prime target for the internationalization of operations, investment and finance by Chinese companies, which will mean that Chinese capital, which originally accounted for 1/5 the foreign capital invested in Hong Kong, could continue to grow and expand on its original foundation, and further increase Hong Kong's function as an international financial center.

Translation - English --Growth factors in PRGF and their role in repair
It is possible to accelerate the global repair process through application of PRGF to the site of the injury to influence these mechanisms. To better understand the clinical potential of PRGF, it is necessary to have an idea of the biological characteristics of these GFs and their mechanism. The GFs contained in the preparation used act in an autocrinic and/or paracrinic manner. They affect the cellular behavior by binding to specific receptors situated on cell membranes (13). Since not all cellular phenotypes have the same receptors, the effect of PRGF will not be identical in all tissues or in all situations. There are other factors affecting the bioavailability of GFs in the preparation as well. For example, much of the TGF-beta and IGF-I are found in latent form, bound to another protein which inactivates them. Depending on the biochemical variables in the environment, such as pH, these proteins are activated and are available for interaction with their receptors (14). Due to this interaction, a complex series of intercellular signals is set off, with the final destination being the cell nucleus, where a specific gene is activated. This activation causes the transcription of ARNm, and, finally, the synthesis of a concrete protein.
