A story by the head of the National Endowment for Democracy published in The Washingt

上海后花园品茶微信on Post last Thursday about the horrifying riot on July 5, 2009, was a typical example of this.

In that riot, 197 innocent people were killed and 1,700 more injured. Without showing any sympathy to the dead and injur

ed, the author called the riot “the struggle of the Uygur people to defend their rights”.上海后花园

Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom

上海后花园品茶微信mon for Westerners to have a double standard when it comes to terrorist attack

s in China and the country’s efforts to combat terrorism and extremism in the region.

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

ular Uygur youths, with knowledge and skills上海后花园

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.

Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

上海后花园品茶微信s in more than three years; tourist trips made to Xinjiang from home and abroad reached 150 million last year; its econo

my has grown by 40 percent over the past five years; and the Uygur population has increased from about

9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

Yet the differences can上海千花网he points where th

Chinese and Western elements and values can find common ground. A good example being the part in the trailer where the matchmaker describes the qu

alities that make for a good wife, namely a woman being “quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined”. This is said with M上海千花网品茶微信

ulan appearing in two images. One has her dressing as a woman, the other with her practicing sword. Obviously Disney de

上海千花网scribed Mulan as a warrior, an independent female who can save herself instead of waiting for someone to save her.

That’s a good point where Chinese and Western values are similar because gender equality and female independence are上海千花网

now valued in both cultures. It will strike a chord with both Chinese and Western audiences.

上海千花网品茶微信But whatever styles her clothes and makeup follow, Mulan is a Chinese legendary heroine and she embodies the virtues of Chinese wo

men. Disney’s Mulan should also prompt the Chinese movie industry to make better use of Chinese stories. Chinese scriptwriters an

d directors can well tell stories about Chinese ancient heroes to the world, instead of waiting for Disney or H上海千花网

ollywood to tell them. Good stories move audiences of the whole world because their hearts are interconnected.

l cars, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and fuel-cell commercial cars.

Since 2018, with an updated policy, the authorities have been rolling out lists of specific上海千花坊

NEVs and small engine vehicles regularly for them to get tax cuts or exemptions.

上海千花坊Cui said the extended tax exemption to more NEVs this time will especi

ally better support the development of commercial NEVs, whose owners are m

ore sensitive to prices and taxes, because they usually own a large number of such vehicles.上海千花坊女神会所

Inclusion into the newest tax exemption list also endorses the quality and technical

上海千花坊capabilities of such NEVs, which will help the manufactures to build brand image and attract customers, he said.

Qiu Kaijun, an industry observer and founder of Evobserver, an influential social med上海千花坊女神会所

ia platform in the NEV industry, said the vehicle and vessel tax cut measures are part of the authorities’ bro

ader efforts to boost the development of the NEV industry, as they aim to encourage purchases of NEVs, although t上海千花坊

he effects are not as influential as other incentives including financial subsidies and rebates of purchase tax.

The NEV industry in China has been developing very fast in recent years, as the co上海千花坊

untry pushes forward with efforts to build a globally competitive automobile industry.

上海千花坊女神会所There are two main points that Chinese audiences are unhappy with. First, in the trailer there are shots of Fujian, which is ab

out 3,000 kilometers away from historical home of Mulan in history. Second, the heroine Mulan, starring Cr

ystal Liu, wears heavy makeup that is appealing to Westerners’ eyes, not Chinese eyes.上海千花坊

Perhaps the criticism is unfair as Disney has designed the movie to please Western audiences, who c

上海千花坊女神会所are more about the story than the historical facts. That’s why Chinese audiences should not expect the f

ilm to have accurate Chinese elements even though the story is Chinese and almost all the leading actors are Chinese or

at least ethnic Chinese. It shows Chinese elements through the eyes of Westerners.

In 2018, NEV sales in China maintained robust growth of 61.7 percent

year-on-year, although the broader auto market sales contracted 2.8 percent year-on-y

ear, according to statistics from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

For the January-May period this year, China’s NEV production and s

ales reached 480,000 units and 464,000 units, up 46 percent and 41.5 percent y

ear-on-year, respectively, according to Xin Guobin, vice-minister of industry and information technology.

China had 340 million motor vehicles by the end of June this year, while the number of NEVs had reached 3.44 mi

llion, according to figures released by the Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday.

Besides, the National Scholarship will be set up in Secondary Vocational Education (including technical schools) this year on to re上海419论坛

ward outstanding full-time students. The scholarship will be awarded to 20,000 students each year, with 6,000

yuan per person. These policies will be implemented in both public and private secondary vocational schools.

上海419论坛女神会所The Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 is a serious violation of the one China principle and the thre

eopardize peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, but also increase the possibility of the mainland using

上海419论坛女神会所whatever means necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.

The US has frequently meddled in Taiwan affairs, which has significantly undermined Sino-US ties, creating worries and risks across the Straits.

But since China is committed to safeguarding its sovereignt上海419论坛女神会所

China’s prospects for copi上海千花坊anctions – whic

 the US administration is likely to use more often – are not so bright. Last month, a US judge found three large Ch

inese banks in contempt of court for refusing to produce evidence for an investigation into violations of sanctions aga上海千花坊

inst the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The ruling ignores the fact that, according to Chinese law, any request for ba

上海千花坊品茶微信nking records should be handled in accordance with the US-China mutual legal assistance agreement.

Chinese financial institutions thus need to prepare for more troubles, including the risk of being blacklisted – that is, deprived of the right to u

se the US dollar and important services, such as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication financial m上海千花坊

essaging service and the Clearing House Interbank Payments System. It is a punishment few companies can survive.

上海千花坊品茶微信Already, one Chinese bank has been included on the Correspondent Account or Payable-Through Acc

The Chinese government has few options here, but it can step up legislative efforts to protect Chinese banks’ interests, while encour

上海千花坊品茶微信aging Chinese financial institutions to treat compliance with US financial regulations with the utmost c

are. It should also continue working to internationalize the yuan, as there is still a long way to go on this front.

China remains committed to its 40-year-old process of reform and opening-up. Today, that process must focus on redoub

ling efforts to strengthen intellectual property rights protection, adhering to competitive neutrality and de上海千花坊品茶微信

fending multilateralism. But following through on this commitment will require China to find ways to manage escalating ten

上海千花坊sions with the US and avoid a costly – and potentially devastating – reconfiguration of the global economy.

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma

n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛

r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,

上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.

This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth

er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛

man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people

上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.

As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji

ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所

cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.

vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin

jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所

ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.

上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre

judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛

Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of

supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛

There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive

behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li

nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th

of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

Zupko has been hired to 上海后花园 Tsinghua’s global

zation strategy and will lead a team of teachers to make the univers

ity as international as possible, with the target of ensuring that international students and sc上海后花园

holars do not encounter language or cultural barriers at the university as of next year, Beijing Youth Daily reported.

上海后花园Zupko was quoted as saying a world-class university should be inclusive of different cultures, which was key to Tsinghua hiring him.

He illustrates the university’s continued internationalization efforts

. This strategy at many universities on the Chinese mainland has helped them to achieve better上海后花园女神会所

standings globally, as internationalization is an important factor in university rankings.

上海后花园In the latest QS World University Rankings published by higher education analyst QS Qu

acquarelli Symonds in London, six mainland universities made it into the world’s top 100.

Tsinghua is China’s highest-ranked university on the list, rising from 17th place last year to 16th. Peking University ros上海后花园

e eight places to 22nd, with both achieving the best rankings since the list was first published in 2004.

Fudan University in Shanghai ranked third among mainland 女神会所universities, up four place上海后花园

s year-on-year and 31 places since 2015. Zhejiang University’s rankings rose 14 places to 54th.

QS ranked 1,000 universities from 82 countries and regions. They are measured on academic standing, grad

上海后花园女神会所uate employability, student-to-staff ratio, research impact and internationalization.

Last year, more than 16,000 faculty and students went abroad for visits and exchanges, and

over 3,700 international students from 128 countries were studying at Tsinghua, he said.上海后花园

It is not the only university pursuing a more globalized education, with neighboring Peking University also rec

ently announcing its Global Excellence Strategy, which aims to enhance international exchanges and co

o上海后花园女神会所peration, overcome development barriers, gather high-quality resources and stimulate collegial progress.

The strategy features six development concepts: creativity, leade

rship, openness, uniqueness, diversity and shaping, the university said.

In his speech to celebrate Tsinghua’s 108th anniversary, Qiu Yon上海后花园

g, the institution’s president, said it is embracing the vision of being a global uni

versity, as well as promoting and representing the development of higher education in China.

上海后花园女神会所The university continues to further implement its global strategy, which strives to

enhance the competence of its students worldwide, conduct high-end research for the benefit of both China an

d the world, promote international exchanges and cooperation, and strengthen its global impact, he said.

A more open Tsinghua will embrace the world, and the university has signed cooperatio上海后花园女神会所

n agreements with 285 universities and research institutes in 50 countries, Qiu added.

Williams’ partner for 上海千花坊bles, two-time Wimbled

on singles winner Andy Murray, won his first-round match in men’s doubles as he returned to the tournament for the first time in two years following two hip oper

ations. Marcos Baghdatis, the 2006 Australian Open runner-up and a fan favorite, played what he says will be the last上海千花坊

match of his career. Marin Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion and a 2017 Wimbledon finalist, lost, too.

None of that really mattered, in the end.

上海千花坊品茶微信Everything was rendered secondary to Nadal vs. Kyrgios.

Part of that is because a 19-year-old Kyrgios beat then-No. 1 Nadal at the All England Club in 2014.

Part of that is because they traded barbs away from the court recently in a spat that also involved Nadal’s uncle, Toni.上海千花坊品茶微信

In the leadup to this meeting, Kyrgios joked that he didn’t think “me and Rafa could go dow

n to the Dog & Fox and have a beer together,” referring to a nearby bar where Kyrgios was spotted W上海千花坊

ednesday night. The 33-year-old Nadal, meanwhile, observed that he was “too old for all this stuff.”

They could hardly be more different, something Kyrgios underline

上海千花坊品茶微信d after he lost despite producing a 58-44 advantage in winners, including 29 aces — one a se

cond serve at a tournament-high 143 mph and a pair that he hit with an underarm motion.

These two couldn’t even agree on whether Kyrgios is capable of winning major championships.

Nadal’s take? “With his talent and with his serve, he can win a Grand Slam, of course.”上海千花坊品茶微信

And Kyrgios’ self-assessment? “I know what I’m capable of. Just depe

上海千花坊nds. I’m a great tennis player, but I don’t do the other stuff. I’m not the most professional gu

y. I won’t train day in, day out. I won’t show up every day. So there’s a lot of things I need to improve on to get to that le

vel that Rafa brings. … But, no, at the moment I don’t think I can contend for a Grand Slam.”上海千花坊品茶微信

He is ranked 43rd, and hasn’t been past the quarterfinals at a majo

r. But against Nadal, he displayed boundless power, guile, touch and athleticism.

Kyrgios, his shirt collared popped just so, seemed to act at times as if it we

re more important to look cool than to play well. The between-the-leg shots, the un

necessary leaping backhands and all the rest. On the initial point of the pivotal fourth-set tiebreaker, he jumped high for a

showy overhead instead of making a safer putaway. The result? He deposited his

shot ball in the net, then rolled his eyes and chucked away a ball. Soon, the match was over.

For example, at the Lian上海419论坛Hangzhou, Zhejian

g province, which dates from 5,300 to 4,500 years ago, archaeologists unearthed a hug

e dam 3.5 kilometers long and more than 10 meters thick. Ruins of the city cover 3 million square met上海419论坛

ers, and the city’s walls are 40 to 60 meters thick. The discovery was made possible with remote sensing technology.

上海419论坛”In the city center, we found a terrace that is 630 meters by 450 meters,” he said. “Some of the foundations are as large as 900 square meters.”

He estimated that the entire city would have taken 10,000 people a decade or longer to build.上海419论坛女神会所

“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many

上海419论坛people,” Wang said. “That indicated a time of early-stage states with wide influence.”

Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from

4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya

o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro

上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.

“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank

of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛

tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.

上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.

“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛

the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”

Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University

上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap

pearance of written characters and metallurgy, have not strictly been used in this project.

Liangzhu and several other early civilizations in China, h上海419论坛女神会所

owever, are known for their highly developed techniques in making jade articles.

上海419论坛女神会所”Some characters of human development are common,” Zhao said. “The

difference also shows there are some unique characters in early Chinese civilization.”

He said Chinese civilization also absorbed influences from other civilizations. Archaeological discoveries sho

w wheat cultivation, breeding of cattle and sheep, and bronze-making technology in China originated in We

stern and Central Asia and were later adopted and acquired local characteristics.

Speaking about the music上海乌托邦’s music director Jesse

Warkentin, says: “Gershwin’s music is full of pictures, romantic and

sensory. And it takes the audience back to the city in 1945, at the end of World War II.”上海乌托邦女神会所

Sean Kelly, resident director of the musical, in Beijing, who spent two decades

上海乌托邦as principal dancer with Houston Ballet, had taught at the Beijing Dance Academy for a year in the early 1990s.

“Compared with the movie, the musical is more dramatic. And we worked hard on the casting to make

the dance dynamics come alive onstage,” Kelly says. “Chinese audiences enjoy musicals. But what e

xcites me more is that they like discussing the stories and characters with us after the shows.”上海乌托邦女神会所

A new musical marking the 70th anniversary of New China’s founding will premiere at the China National Theater for Children on July 6.

上海乌托邦Stars in the Flame tells the story of children who lost their parents during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).

It centers on the Battle of Songhu, also known as the Battle of Shanghai, which was one of the bloodiest conflicts during the war.

The work directed by Zhao Yu and composed by Wang

Gang is the opening play of the ninth China Children’s Theater Festival.上海乌托邦女神会所

“We went to Shanghai and Wuhan to learn about the history,” Zhao says.

“It was an unforgettable experience since we’ve learned many lesser-known sto

ries, especially those about the orphans who fought alongside our soldiers.”

Another children’s play, based on Danish author Hans Christian Anderse上海乌托邦

n’s classic fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, will also open the festival on July 6. The Chinese-Dan

ish joint production is directed by Torkild Lindebjerg and composed by Dane Jens Tolsgaard.上海乌托邦女神会所

The festival is staged annually during the summer vacation under the theme, “art changes lives”.

From July 6 to Aug 11, 57 theatrical productions from 14 countries, including the United

States, Japan and Russia, will stage 191 performances at the China National Theater for Children.
