Some curbs reimpose爱上海ontrolled Kashmir

India-controlled Kashmir-Indian authorities reimposed restrictions on movem

ent in parts of India-controlled Kashmir’s biggest city, Srinagar, on Sunday after overnight clashes between resid爱上海

ents and police in which dozens were injured, two senior officials and eyewitnesses said.

爱上海女神会所Since Saturday, there have been a series of protests against the decision on Aug 5 by India

n Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government to revoke the autonomy of the region.

The officials said security forces had been pelted爱上海

with stones on 47 occasions on Saturday night in the Kashmir Valle

y, and more than 20 on Sunday. One said the protests were growing more intense.

爱上海On Saturday, about two dozen people reported to Srinagar’s two main hospitals with injuries, mainly from pellets fired by Ind

ian forces, said the officials, who declined to be named. Residents and police said m爱上海

any people with pellet wounds were not seeking treatment for fear of being identified and arrested.

The state and federal governments did not respond to questions about the number of incidents and the level of injuries.

India has imposed a security lockdown in its portion of Kashmir爱上海女神会所

to avoid violence in reaction to the move to change the territory’s status.

The government has said it was gradually restoring phone lines and easing the lockdown,爱上海

but changes were slow. Public buses were running in rural areas, but soldiers limited

the movement of people on mostly deserted streets in Srinagar, the region’s main city.爱上海女神会所

The Press Trust of India reported that restrictions w

ere reimposed in parts of Srinagar after violence was reported on Saturday.

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.

As the principal dan上海品茶微信nd dozens of other da

ncers from the Liaoning Ballet of China will take their original ballet Hua Mulan to the United States a

nd Canada in late August, representing the troupe’s first performance of the classic outside of China.上海品茶微信

For Yu, who entered the Liaoning Ballet in 2009, it has been a unique process.

“In the past, I often played the roles of a swan or a princess. This tim上海品茶微信

e, I had to become a man who is ultimately found to be a woman,” she says. To act Mulan’s p

art well, she had to do push-ups and fight with sticks on stage, just like the male dancers.

上海品茶微信The story originates from a Northern Dynasty (386-581) folk song, known as the Ballad of Mulan. The song tells the tal

e of a valiant girl who joins the army on behalf of her ailing father, battles enemies to defend her country and fights with

high distinction. However, she refuses the accolades thrust upon her and ultimately retires to her hometown.上海品茶微信

Besides the physical techniques required, Chinese b

allet cares about portraying its characters’ inner world and expressing emotions.

“Playing the legendary warrior has made me grow up and deepened my understanding of performance, life and Chin上海品茶微信

ese culture,” Yu says. “You should be able to impress yourself before you can impress your audience.”

Qu Zijiao, 57-year-old director of the Liaoning Ballet, says: “To tell Ch

上海品茶微信inese stories to global audiences, the legend of Mulan is more relatable than others.”

She says it is a touching story, and Mulan’s heroic spirit, perseverance, and love fo

r country and peace can resonate with people everywhere, adding that many European and American audiences are

already familiar with her story thanks to Disney’s classic animated film, which introduced上海品茶微信

the legend of Mulan to the West. Additionally, the recent release of initial footage from Disney’s u

pcoming live-action remake of Mulan has sparked renewed interest in the character.

上海品茶微信The 100 plus-minute ballet Hua Mulan incorporates classic and modern art elements that will suit the taste of today’s a

udiences at home and abroad, according to Wang Yong, choreographer-director of the show.

Industry body calls on authorities to implement government guidelines

上海千花坊Officials at China’s leading auto industry association are calling for local authoriti

es to implement the central government’s guidelines for boosting car consumption in the wake of ve

hicle sales in the country having fallen for 13 months in a row as of the end of July.

Overall vehicle sales in the world’s biggest vehicle market stood at 1.8 million in July, falling 4.3 percent from t上海千花坊女神会所

he same month last year, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

Total sales in the first seven months of this year totaled 14.13 million, down 11.4 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊

The association expects the fall to become less severe in coming m

onths because of a lower comparable base figure from the second half of last year a上海千花坊

nd because of the measures implemented to help with car consumption.

It estimated that China’s vehicle sales would drop 5 percent this year上海千花坊女神会所

from 2018 to 26.68 million vehicles. It has also trimmed its forecast for a rise in new ene

rgy vehicle sales to 1.5 million from a forecast of 1.6 million made at the start of the year.

Though RYB Education上海419hat Oswaldo has

a valid work visa, the regulations mean that as a Colombian citizen

whose mother tongue is Spanish, he is ineligible to work as an English-language teacher.上海419

An undercover investigation by China Central Television recently showed that salaries p

上海419品茶微信aid to foreign English-language teachers are much higher than those for Chinese nationals doing the same job.

For example, at one training institution in Beijing, a Chinese teacher of English can earn 300 yu

an an hour, while foreign teachers can earn as much as 1,800 yuan per hour simply by talking to the students.上海419

When the undercover reporter asked to see the qualifications and working visas of foreig

n teachers at one training institute, his request was refused because it “violates the teachers’ privacy”. A different i

nstitute refused to show the reporter the relevant documents because it was a “business secret”.上海419

At another online English training institution, the reporter discovered that two of the English-language te

achers were Portuguese nationals, even though the上海419品茶微信

institution repeatedly assured him that all of its teachers were native speakers.

Chu Zhaohui, a senior researcher at the National Institute of Education

Sciences, said the market for foreign teachers is like a gold rush, with abundant o上海419

pportunities, few regulations and big profits for those who want to make a quick buck.

“For foreigners, applying for jobs in English-language teaching at training establis上海419品茶微信

hments is straightforward-often, simply submitting a resume is enough, and usually they are not r

上海419equired to undergo background checks, provide references or proof of qualifications,” Chu said.

He added that parents and students are more forgiving of fo

reign teachers’ lack of teaching credentials, especially if they are white-skinned nati上海419品茶微信

ve speakers, because they assume that all foreigners have the ability to teach their mother tongue.

After a brief peaceful dem上海419ration, they left the

park to takee over Hennessy Road, a major thoroughfare in the heart of the shopping district in Causeway Bay, bloc

king traffic and disturbing tourists. In hit-and-run tactics, they also went to Wan Chai, taking similar actions.上海419品茶微信

Those protesters face the risk of arrest because they deviated from the planned rally’s location.

Under Hong Kong’s Public Order Ordinance, participating in an unlawful assembl

上海419y is punishable by five years’ imprisonment, and rioting carries a maximum penalty of 10 years.

Also on Sunday, demonstrators continued to occupy the Hong Kong International Airport arrivals hall for a third day.

In a separate development, the city’s major airline, Cathy Pacific, confirmed on Sat上海419品茶微信

urday that a Hong Kong pilot charged with rioting for taking part in a recent protest has been grounded.

上海419On Friday, the embattled airline received a warning from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the national aviat

ion regulator, over the possible safety risk the pilot posed and queries from passengers and the public.

The airline also confirmed that two of its employees had been dismissed for misconduct.上海419品茶微信

In Beijing, the Foreign Ministry urged the United Kingdom to stop interfering in China’s inte

rnal affairs and to refrain from making random, inflammatory accusations regarding Hong Kong.

上海419品茶微信The refutation came after the British Foreign Office said that new Foreign Secret

ary Dominic Raab spoke by telephone on Friday with Lam about the situation in Hong Kong.

“I’d like to point out that Hong Kong today is a special administrative

region of the People’s Republic of China. Long gone are the days when it was under B上海419品茶微信

ritish colonial rule,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Saturday.

Students and young en上海419论坛eurs are our target cu

 customers,” says Lin Dayan, an October Time manager. “We offer them

a place where they can get in touch with their dreams.”上海419论坛品茶微信

Another 24-hour bookshop in Beijing that allows customers to get in touch with their dreams, and with the past, too, is China Boo

上海419论坛kstore Yanchi Building, renowned for its collections of ancient books and precious secondhand books. The build

ing in which the shop is located in a restored part of the Di’anmen Gate of old Beijing, dates back to the 15th century.上海419论坛

On July 20, four years to the day when the shop opened, half of about a dozen desks in its reading-for

-free zones were occupied. Outside, the din of the nearby Shichahai areas and hutong were dying

上海419论坛品茶微信down; inside, some were reading the shop’s books and some were working or studying.

One shop assistant and one guard were on duty, their shifts due to end at 8 am the following day, and they seemed happy to

offer assistance to customers. In these shops that help can go beyond locating books, because apart from having cafes, a上海419论坛

nd selling gift items, some are turning into venues for all kinds of social activities.

In Page One Qianmen there are occasional mini concerts in the evening.上海419论坛品茶微信

“For 24-hour bookstores, the operating challenges run into the second half of the night, says Zhang Lei, also known as San S

hi, a veteran bookstore planner and critic. “The solutions include running multiple businesses.上海419论坛

“Midnight bookstores are like large study areas, a third space in addition to the home a

nd the workplace. People actually do a lot of things in bookshops; they go there with relatives, meet friends in them a

上海419论坛品茶微信nd treat them like well-known tourist attractions, taking the usual kinds of photos.”

Zhang is skeptical about the chances of unstaffed bookshops, because one of the things that 24-hour bookshops have goin

g for them in the relentless battle against online bookselling is that they bring people together, he says.

“If you ask me, bookshops with no people seem a bit vulnerable.”

The book, despite its t上海龙凤419 History in the Pa

 also includes profiles of many fictional animals, in a bid to stoke the imagination.

Parents who take their children to visit the Palace Museum are often bomb上海龙凤419女神会所

arded with questions about the decorations featuring sacred animals, according to

Bao Fang, one of the book’s editors from CITIC Press. “Children always want to know everything about these animals: W

上海龙凤419ho are friendly and which are vicious. Perhaps the book can help parents answer these questions.”

A kaleidoscope of mythical species are presented, including the auspicious unicorn called qilin; a

flying horse with dragon’s wings called longma, and the dragon-like marine animal called jiaolong.上海龙凤419女神会所

Zhang Jinshuo, chief curator of popular science at the National Zoological Museu

m of China, points out that, in recent years, translated works from the West have often been the favored res

“The paintings’ exquisite details bring the creatures to life,” Zhang says. “They show a colorful world of natural history.”

If it rains heavily on this Wednesday night, some elderly Chinese will say it is because Zhin上海龙凤419女神会所

u, or the Weaving Maid, is crying on the day she met her husband Niulang, or the Cowherd, on the Milky Way.

Most Chinese remember being told this romantic tragedy when they were children on Qixi, or the Seventh Night Fe

上海龙凤419stival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month. This year it falls on Wednesday, August 7.Folklore Story

As the story goes, once there was a cowherd, Niulang, who lived with his elder brother and sister-in-law. But she disl

iked and abused him, and the boy was forced to leave home with only an old cow for company.上海龙凤419女神会所

The cow, however, was a former god who had violated imperial rules and was sent to earth in bovine form.

One day the cow led Niulang to a lake where fairies took a bath on ear

上海龙凤419th. Among them was Zhinu, the most beautiful fairy and a skilled seamstress.

The two fell in love at first sight and were soon married. They had a son and dau

ghter and their happy life was held up as an example for hundreds of years in China.

Yet in the eyes of the Jade Emperor, the Supreme Deity in Taoism, marriage betwee上海龙凤419女神会所

n a mortal and fairy was strictly forbidden. He ordered the heaven troop to catch Zhinu back.

Niulang grew desperate when he discovered Zhinu had been taken back to heave

上海龙凤419n. Driven by Niulang’s misery, the cow told him to turn its hide into a pair of shoes after it died.

He adds that if things like the somewhat vague portrayal of some a

nimals through error and imagination “are viewed in the bigger picture of history上海龙凤419女神会所

and society, it will still greatly help us to have a clearer view of our own cultural traditions”.
