陈倩雯指出"商业租金税"很多规定是过时的,已经不适应当前的情况。目前有三条提案要求修改现行法律。第一条由高罗尼克(Dan Garodnick)和罗森索(Helen Rosenthal)市议员提出,按目前规定,租金低于25万元的商家,才能豁免"商业租金税",新法要求把最低租金提高到50万,即租金50万以下的商家不需交"商业租金税",大约有4000个商家能从中受惠。

My  dad has this crazy story of swimming down from Guangzhou, China, to escape the communists and making his way to Hong Kong, where he met my mom. They came to the U.S.A. in 1974. At the time, Nom Wah Tea Parlor belonged to my Uncle Wally. He was 16 when he got here in 1950, and he started working as a dishwasher at Nom Wah. Wally ended up buying the building two decades later.

轄區包括曼哈頓華埠的市警五分局22日舉行警民會,局長吳銘恆除了匯報過去28日內轄區犯罪率下降14.5%的好消息外,更強調雖然總統川普的行政令和21日國土安全部下達的兩項備忘錄都顯示,幾乎所有在美國非法居留的1100萬移民都可能被遣返,但紐約市警的執法原則並未改變,警員絕不會主動向移民局透露受害者、甚至嫌犯的移民身分,因此紐約無證客不會僅因超速駕駛就被遞解出境。

The dumpling is one of the best examples of the city's rich cultural history -- no matter what regional variation you're looking for, you're going to find a fantastic version of it here.

Taipei has always been a city where one doesn't have to work hard to eat awfully well: It has a street food scene as vibrant as that of Bangkok; restaurants that specialize in both Taiwanese and regional cuisines from around China; thousands of cheap and cheerful joints at which to drink cold beer with small plates and quick stir-fries; and a plethora of sushi bars, a remnant of decades spent under Japanese rule.

Video of Fox News personality Jesse Watters disrespecting Chinese people on the streets of New York's Chinatown went viral last October. In the segment on the network's "The O'Reilly Factor", Watters mockingly interviews an elderly woman who apparently can't understand him. As she stands there in silence, the piece cuts to a clip of Madeline Kahn from the movie "Young Frankenstein," shrieking, "Speak! Speak! Why don't you speak!"
