China this year has had one of its best summer harvests in recent years, and an overall good harve
st of grain is likely for the whole year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Friday.上海后花园
Total grain production for the summer reached nearly 142 billion kilograms, an increase of 2.1 percent com
上海后花园品茶微信pared with last year and the same level as 2017, the year with a historically high summer yie
ld, said Wei Baigang, head of the development and planning department at the ministry.
Meanwhile, grain to be harvested in the fall is growing normally. The sprea上海后花园
d of the crop-eating fall armyworm, a species that entered China from Southeast Asia in Jan
上海后花园品茶微信uary, has decelerated, laying a foundation for an overall good harvest this year, he said.
Despite favorable signs, natural disasters such as drought and flooding, whic
h have seriously affected many areas, pose obstacles for a good fall harvest, which上海后花园
usually accounts for about 75 percent of the total grain production in China, Wei said.
上海后花园”The ministry will not spare any effort to protect crop production for the summer…. It will try its best to guide local au
thorities to prevent and control fall armyworms. It will work with related departments to closely watch fluctuations of d上海后花园品茶微信
rought and flooding, carry out emergency plans in a timely way in case of need and intensify oversight for im
上海后花园品茶微信plementation of disaster-relief measures to ensure another good harvest this year,” Wei said.
In addition to grains such as wheat and rice, production of other ma
jor agricultural products such as beef, mutto上海后花园n, aquatic products and milk also inc
reased in the first half of the year, resulting in adequate supply and stable prices, he said.
With increased agricultural production, China’s international trade in agricu
上海后花园品茶微信lture kept growing in the first half of the year. China imported 416 billion yuan ($60.5 b
illion) worth of agricultural products in the first five months and exported 208 billio
n yuan worth of agricultural products, an increase of 14 percent and 4 percent year-on-year, Wei said.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took to Twitter to express his horror. “It’s so dre
adful that I’m lost for words,” he wrote. “I pray for those who passed away.”
上海千花网品茶微信The fire department said it began receiving calls about the fire around 10:3
am. The blaze started in the three-story building in Japan’s ancient capital after the
suspect sprayed an unidentified liquid accelerant, Kyoto prefectural police and fire officials said. 上海千花网
Kyoto Animation’s president, Hideaki Hatta, told reporters “there have been emails with death threats”, without givin
上海千花网品茶微信g further details. He said the gutted building was “the core of the company”, which has produced several well-known t
elevision anime series including The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and K-ON!
In China, Kyoto Animation’s Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan series are well known. 上海千花网
“It’s unbearable that those who have led Japan’s animation industry were hurt and lost their lives,” Hatta said.
上海千花网品茶微信A witness who saw the suspect being approached by police told Japanese netw
orks that the man admitted spreading gasoline and setting a fire with a ligh
ter. She told NHK public television that the man had burns on his arms and legs and that he was angrily complaining tha 上海千花网
t something of his had been “stolen”, possibly by the company. NHK footage also sh

Survivors said the attacker was not their colleague
and that he was screaming “(You) die!” when he dumped the liquid and star 上海千花网

Zhou worked as a civil servant in Shanghai after getting a bachelor’s degree in Chinese literature from Fudan Univ
ersity. While working this job, she had the chance to embark on her first overseas trip to Tasmania, Australia. 上海夜网女神会所
There, when faced with pristine scenes of n
ature, she finally understood the magnitude of the pollution problem at home. 上海夜网
“It was in Tasmania where I learned that leaves should not be cover
上海夜网ed in dust, that the sky should be blue, that the water should be clear,” she said.
The trip sparked something within her, and she resigned from her job as soon as she returned, joining a
n environmental protection organization to protect bar-headed geese at the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. 上海夜网女神会所
Two years later, in 2013, Zhou followed her husband to the United States, where he was accepte
上海夜网d into Harvard Medical School. There, she continued to work at various nonprofit organizations.
Eager to learn more about how environmental protection organizations operate, Zhou applied for a master’s degree program at
Harvard Kennedy School in 2015. In her application letter, Zhou expressed that she was determined to re 上海夜网女神会所
turn to Shanghai after graduation to create an organization aimed at helping people live in an e
nvironmentally friendly way. She went on to study at the institution on a full scholarship.
上海夜网女神会所Despite friends advising her to begin her career in the United States after graduation, Zhou made good on her promise
and returned to Shanghai in 2016. However, she was sidetracked from her original plan and ended up doing bus

While chatting with the head of the neighborhood committee, she learned that in Ma

aggressive recruitment efforts have been made by UK universities to attract non-European students.
Meanwhile, favorable policies were announced by the UK’s Department for Education上海龙凤1314
, such as allowing international students to stay up to one year after their study visas expire.
上海龙凤1314女神会所According to the 2019 survey conducted by higher education marketing company QS, which covered more
than 75,000 students and 71 universities from around the world, 77 percent of prospective inte上海龙凤1314
rnational students claim that extending the post-study leave period for the UK’s visa offer to one year would incr
上海龙凤1314女神会所ease the likelihood of them studying in the UK. And 54 percent of students stated that feeling welcome as an inte
rnational student is one of the five important factors they consider when choosing a university.
However, Zerzan says the major reason for the UK being one of the fav上海龙凤1314
orite destinations for Chinese overseas students is that British education has a trad
ition of innovation by linking academic foundations with the needs of industry. This helps to instill in its grad上海龙凤1314女神会所
uates a need for continuous learning, an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to life as well as
strong practical and relevant skills that are appreciated by employers globally.
Zerzan adds that many foreign universities aim to recruit Ch上海龙凤1314
inese students for short-term financial gains, which might result in a mismatc
h in partners, poorer research output and possible frustrations on both sides.上海龙凤1314女神会所
And he also points out that international student mobility is not just about economic funding.
“The environment now is one where there is a mass flow of students上海龙凤1314
and lecturers – a mass flow of knowledge – and the UK has to engage in that so Chinese stud
ents are among the top academic performers and contribute greatly to scholarly ex上海龙凤1314女神会所
change and academic research and development within the UK education sectors,” he says.
their cars have a 155-kilometer range deficit compared to the lower-tier 2020 versions at a price that’
s 30,000 yuan higher. Other buyers worry about the depreciation risks in these rapid updates.上海千花网
However, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng, said in a microblog cite
上海千花网品茶微信d by International Financial News these demands are unfair to the company. When
consumers compare the bare prices of the two types, He claimed, 2019 model buyers got lots of subsidies.上海千花网
An insider from Xpeng Motors told the newspaper the company started to promote a favorable poli
上海千花网cy by the end of May giving a total of 20,000 yuan to each consumer, and earlier buyers of 2019 G3 mode
ls affected by the government’s subsidy-cutting scheme have also been covered by the policy.
上海千花网品茶微信Therefore, the actual price paid by 2019 G3 buyers is comparatively lower than the 2020 G3 prices, the source added.
Xpeng Motors is not an exceptional case amid fast growth in the electric ve
hicle industry. In March, Tesla’s decision to adjust prices down also roused early bu上海千花网
yers’ anger, asking the company to subsidize the price difference or cooperate with them to return their cars.
But a lawyer interviewed by International Financial News said no legal ground exists to support these buyers’ requests.
上海千花网品茶微信Sun Shaojun, a motoring analyst, said Xpeng’s case represents a new
normal for the sector, as the electric vehicle industry sees exponentially faster development.
What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he broke w上海千花网品茶微信
ith his Cubist painting, but some also has to do with the fact his interests extended far beyond painting.
Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art wo上海千花网
rld for decades, paving the way for many of the important artistic movements of the last century.
As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picasso’s poetry and oth上海千花网品茶微信
er written works are often overlooked in discussions of his long and varied career.
The artist did not begin to write until the age of 53. His literary endeavors上海千花网
resulted in hundreds of poems with a unique fusion of words and visual imagery.
“Over the past 5,000 years, history has recorded the rise and fall of kingd
oms and dynasties. One hundred and fifty years ago, the West conquered the world but 娱乐地图女神会所
failed to conquer the hearts of Chinese. Now, Uncle Sam is seeking unilateralism by abandoning world ord
娱乐地图女神会所ers since World War II, but they encountered resistance all over the world, especially from China,” said Wang Yao
heng, one of 12 contestants in the annual English Speech Contest held by the College of Liberal Arts & Law of Da
lian Minzu University on June 28. He made no secret of his admiration of Chinese culture. 娱乐地图女神会所
“After being informed of the speech contest, I was very excited about it. As a Chinese youth, I long for
an opportunity to express my love for the culture of our motherland. In addition, this is also a figh 娱乐地图
t back to those who turn a deaf ear to both affairs at home and abroad. I want to tell them that we college students are no
t a “spoiled generation, we are not the kind of know-nothing-but-pleasure” generation, Wang said. 娱乐地图女神会所
The contestants were ethnically diverse, and expressed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride
娱乐地图for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past several decades. The recognition o
f Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic groups reache
d a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US. 娱乐地图
However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.
Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used t 娱乐地图女神会所
o be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.
Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue 娱乐地图
l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lo
nger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age. 娱乐地图女神会所
Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era an
d appealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke
ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.
Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western attitude in C
hina. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and digest
their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.
the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno
wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信
About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin
上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year
posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.
According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信
mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be
上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.
The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in
2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信
14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.
上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi
s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.
“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信
1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.
上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint
ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma
o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信
Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin
上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu
rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.
According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信
ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col
上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.
“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp
ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.
“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th
e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le
ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”
Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys
from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所
The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.
娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos
ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.
Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所
The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely
娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.
Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图
splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.
娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are
very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图
an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.
娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do
ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur
inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di
fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图
“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.
Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所
dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.
The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图
de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie
娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.
In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit
h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.
