There is an urgent need to maintain China-US strategic stability and to reduce
Jaelen Strong Jersey Sale misunderstandings, he said.

John Frisbie, president of the US-China Business Council, an organization comprising US companies investing and trading in China, said the dialogue
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey comes three months before President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Barack Obama meet during the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, in September.

Some of the outcomes are likely to be resolved at the presidents’ September meeting, rather than at the dialogue, he said.

Zhiqun Zhu, an associate professor of political science and international relations
Huston Texans Jersey at Bucknell University in the US, said the annual dialogues have helped to keep communication channels open and to stabilize the bilateral relationship when it is being challenged by various factors.

“No matter who the next US president is, such crucial dialogue mechanisms must be maintained to ensure stability and continuity of the relationship. The
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey communication channels must stay open when the two sides are experiencing serious challenges,” he said.

What they say

“We need more engagement with China, not less, even if our countries do not always see eye to eye. Understanding what our most important trade partner is thinking better informs our policy choices and actions. Foreign investment openings, science-based GM seed approvals, restrictive IT security policies,
Jaelen Strong Jersey progress on the WTO environmental goods agreement, and market-based solutions to industrial overcapacity are examples of issues in a broad range of sectors that will be discussed.”

John Frisbie, president of the US-China Business Council

“Nuclear security is likely to be at the top of the list of priorities for US President Barack Obama. He may seek strong Chinese support for new efforts on the nonproliferation front. Beyond that issue, he wants to leave office with an overall
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale legacy of strong cooperation with China. There is reason to believe that either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be less accommodating to China than Obama has been.”

Ted Galen Carpenter, senior fellow in defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute, a US think tank

“There are some disagreements in the strategies between the two countries. But if the contradictions are emphasized too much, future China-US cooperation will be undermined. To resolve the disagreements, China and the US should stick to the principles of a new-type relationship between major powers — no conflict,
Jaelen Strong Texans Jersey no confrontation, respect for each other and seek common interests.”

Wang Fan, vice-president of China Foreign Affairs University

“China-US relations have arrived at a new crossroads. The debate on China policy in the US presidential campaign, the unknown fate of the strategic and economic
Women’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey dialogue under the next US administration, and US involvement in the South China Sea all made this round of the dialogue more eye-catching. The dialogue is a pressure-relieving valve that can help both sides manage their disagreements and control risks, as it has provided a platform for senior officials to communicate.”

Jaelen Strong Texans Jersey Titans want Mariota to improve pocket awareness

Marcus Mariota stands poised to make a leap forward in his second season,
Jaelen Strong Texans Jersey dragging a perennially poor Tennessee Titans squad up the standings.

The Titans’ brass spent the offseason bulking up to aid the quarterback in his development, but much of Mariota’s improvement will fall squarely on his own
Jaelen Strong Jersey Sale shoulders. Pocket awareness and deep passing acumen are among the areas coaches have stressed this offseason.

“I’ve really emphasized getting rid of the ball instead of taking sacks,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said,via The Tennessean. “Marcus has been told an
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey incompletion is OK. Live another down. But a sack can be catastrophic,Youth Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale,Men’s Nike Houston Texans 11 Jaelen Strong Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey,so throw the ball away and move on to the next down.”

Mariota took 38 sacks in 12 starts as a rookie and was sacked on an NFL-high 26 percent of plays in which he was pressured. Poor blocking surely caused that disappointing sack stat — and got the quarterback injured — but the Titans believe better awareness of what’s going on around him will propel his Year 2 bump.

Getting the ball out quickly will also aid in mitigating his sack rate, but Mariota understands that sometimes patience is needed in letting routes develop,
Huston Texans Jersey especially if the Titans’ deep passing attack is to improve in 2016. Mariota owned the worst passing accuracy on balls traveling 20-plus air yards last season.

“You have to have a deep passing game within your offense,” Mariota said. “It’s got to be incorporated in some form or fashion. You can’t just limit yourself to
Jaelen Strong Jersey underneath routes and let the defense kind of sit on those things. I’m all for it. I love throwing the deep ball.”

The Titans focused this offseason on building around Mariota. Drafting offensive tackle Jack Conklin in the first round, running back Derrick Henry in the second,
