Li Baochuan, a researche上海419论坛 history at Hangzh

hou Normal University, echoes Cao’s views on the need for good voice-over work when he recall

s that the 1999 animation Lotus Lantern gained huge success, partly thanks to its star-studded v上海419论坛品茶微信

oice-over cast of more than 10 celebrities, including Jiang Wen, Chen Peisi and Zhu Shimao.

“It became a game-changer that ushered in a wave of big-budget animations that started to use celebrities to enhance the fil

上海419论坛品茶微信ms. And veteran actors, who have stage performance experience, have proved that they can do a better job.”

The 2019 Chinese Science Education Summit was held in Beijing recently and its theme was “Make science education more scientific”.

Speaking at the event, Zou Caineng, an academician from the Chinese Acad上海419论坛

emy of Sciences, emphasized the importance of cultivating a sense of innovation sense in kids.

David G. Evans, a professor at Beijing University of Chemical Technology presented some sci上海419论坛品茶微信

entific experiments at the event and explained the necessity of letting kids do the experiments themselves.

上海419论坛The summit was held by the Kindergarten of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Beijing As

sociation for Early Education and Development and attracted more than 400 participants from all over China.

The Ministry of Education and the British Council recently announced the recipients of the first round of seed fund上海419论坛

ing under the UK-China-BRI Countries Education Partnership Initiative. And they included Peking U

niversity, Dalian University of Technology, the University of Leeds and King’s College London.上海419论坛

As part of the funding, an initial 420,000 pounds ($527,000) of the investm

ent will be provided to nearly 30 universities from 12 countries most of which are in上海419论坛

volved in the Belt and Road Initiative, to help deepen cooperation mainly in the fields of healthcare, food safety, a

dvanced manufacturing, renewable energy, and global leadership transformation.

上海419论坛品茶微信Zhang Jin, vice-director of the Department of International

Cooperation and Exchanges at the Ministry of Education, says that the initiative is the mi

nistry’s first multilateral collaboration with a European country within the framework of the BRI, which aims to p

artner with more countries in higher education to resolve shared global challenges.上海419论坛品茶微信

To Andrew Zerzan, director of education at the British Council, the funding

is an essential step in connecting the brightest minds across the world to improve the qua

lity and impact of educational collaborations between the United Kingdom and China, and strengthen their expe上海419论坛品茶微信

rtise in student mobility, joint degree programs and groundbreaking research.

“In the current economic climate, investment in education is a k

ey lever in building lasting links between the two countries,” says Zerzan.

Even if such a coalition上海419论坛ed, the US should realize

e the more warships that it and its allies have in the strait, the more risk there is of an inadve

That the US stopped short of launching a retaliatory military attack agains

上海419论坛品茶微信t Iran after Iran shot down its surveillance drone suggests that the US does not want a w

ar with Iran. It hopes that its sanctions and maximum pressure will finally make Iran give in.

But that is very unlikely given the way Iran has responded to wh

at the US has done. The best solution to the current stand-off is for both sides to take a step back,上海419论坛

which Iran already seems to have taken, and engage in talks, talks in which the US should not ask for too much.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

sed of involvement in a drug-related case in Yantai, a coastal city in Shandong province.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛

volving foreign students is under investigation and one of the people involved in the case is a Canadian citizen.

上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian

gsu province, where a police crackdown resulted in the arrest of 19 people, including 16 foreigners.

He said public security authorities had made consular notificati上海419论坛

ons to relevant embassies in a timely manner and will arrange consular visits.

China will safeguard the legitimate rights of the parties concerned in accordance with law, Geng added.

The new case came as tensions continue in Sino-Canadian上海419论坛品茶微信

relations, sparked last year by the detention of Huawei’s chief financial offic

er, Meng Wanzhou, in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition.

er goods due to differences in industrial structure, according to the report.上海夜生活

In general, southern Chinese cities’ per capita disposable income is also higher than nort

上海夜生活品茶微信hern Chinese cities, which need to accelerate industrial transformation, the report said.

Developing the night economy has been an important measure to stimulate the vitality o

f consumption and release consumption potential in various Chinese cities.上海夜生活

 Breaking-up may be hard for many people, but it might also prove to be a gold mine for some.

For Li Fangfang, 27, the “breakup economy” is obvious in the “breakup museum”

上海夜生活she launched in June in Lanzhou, capital of northwest China’s Gansu Province.

In the museum, exhibits such as rings, letters and train tickets are on display.

“I created this museum to help people out of sadness and desperation from heartbreak,” Li said. “All the exhibits were上海夜生活品茶微信

collected by me and my team from the Internet, or donated by visitors themselves.”

上海夜生活The museum is divided into sections of different themes. In addition to the ex

ibits, there are also punching bags, a screening room and a “make a wish” lobby.

“I want people to be able to relieve their internal pressure, let go of the past, move on and embrace a new, bright future,” she said.上海夜生活品茶微信

In China, “breakup museums” have mushroomed in many localities,

as the “breakup economy” catches on. In April, for instance, a similar museum opened in Eas

上海夜生活品茶微信China’s Anhui province. In the provinces of Sichuan and Jiangsu, there are also such museums.

To promote her museum, Li turned to social media such as WeChat and short video platforms like

Douyin to spread the word. She also established chatting groups on WeChat, where offline activities上海夜生活品茶微信

were often held. Some of the broken hearts in the groups began dating after meeting each other.

As for China, US seclu上海会所ans scientific fields that r

t rely heavily on importation of advanced equipment will be affected the m

ost. “The silver lining of US pressure is that China will be forced to innovate and be self-suffi上海会所

cient,” Pan said. “The US cutting off exchanges will slow us down a little, but will not stop our strides for progress.”

上海会所品茶微信Given the uncertainty of the situation, scientists and scholars around the world fear that the worl

d will be divided into two major blocs, like during the Cold War. “Splitting the world into two syst

ems and hyping the clash of civilizations will be disastrous for all humanity,” Pan said.上海会所

“The current international systems were mostly put in place after World War II, but this world

上海会所品茶微信order did not anticipate the astonishing rise of China,” he said. “As a result, some norms within the current glob

al systems must change in order to accommodate the new dynamics, a process in which China is willing to help.”

China has been slowly and sincerely contributing its own standards

and knowledge to global governance, especially in regard to the social impact and上海会所

governance of artificial intelligence, biosciences and other emerging technologies, Pan said.

上海会所”China is not a disrupter, but a contributor to the current world order,” he said.

China’s economic growth weakened to 6.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter, but remained stable on the wh

ole in the first half of this year at 6.3 percent, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday.上海会所品茶微信

The country’s industrial output rose by 6.3 percent year-on-year i

n June, compared with 5 percent in the previous month, official data showed.

But in the first half of this year, industrial output growth dropped to 6 percent, down from 6.5 percent in the first quarter.上海会所品茶微信

Fixed-asset investment growth was 5.8 percent in the first six month

s combined, compared with 6.3 percent in the first quarter, according to the NBS.

Retail sales increased by 8.4 percent year-on-year in the first hal上海会所

Production rises 34.6 percent for new energy vehicles and 20.1 percent for solar cells year-on-year in H1, the NBS said.上海会所品茶微信

The bureau said that growth remained on track despite increasing external uncertainties and new downward growth pressure.

Luo also noted that inte上海会所mpanies are the new

 this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E

arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en上海会所

hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.

上海会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it

took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc

h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.上海会所

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict

上海会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig

ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.上海会所

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea

上海会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ

ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res

toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien上海会所

ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im

ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 上海会所品茶微信

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa

上海会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan

ted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

own on immigrant fami上海夜生活rt Sunday, Trum

Trump, a Republican who has made cracking down on illegal imm

igration a centerpiece of his administration, is trying to deal with a surge of mostly Cen上海夜生活品茶微信

tral American families crossing the US-Mexico border. Many families are approaching border officials to seek asylum.

上海夜生活品茶微信The latest planned arrests would follow widespread criticism of the crowded, unsanitary conditions in which immigr

ants are being detained along the southwestern borde

r and concerns about children being separated from adults by border officials.上海夜生活

In a hearing on the subject on Friday at the US House of Representatives, some Democra

ts said they feared the forthcoming arrests could result in more immigrant children being separated from their families.上海夜生活品茶微信

Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, asked a fed

上海夜生活eral watchdog about its recently issued report saying detention conditions were below standards.

Jennifer Costello, the acting inspector general for the Departm

ent of Homeland Security, told the congressional hearing that the government was falling short in term上海夜生活品茶微信

s of “crowding, the prolonged detention, some of the hygiene that the children are supposed to have.”

Costello said it would be “impossible” to meet required standards under “the conditions that we saw there.”

Trump sent Vice President Mike Pence to visit some of the criticized detention facilities in Mc上海夜生活

Allen, Texas, on Friday along with journalists, who have generally been denied access to detained immigrants.

上海夜生活品茶微信Reporters who joined the tour saw immigrants, including children, lying on mats on the flo

or covered with thin aluminum blankets. A few toys lay about, and some watched television.

The Trump administration has increased pressure on the govern上海夜生活

ments of Mexico and several Central American countries to stem the flow of migrants reaching the US border.

Trump is to meet with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales at the White House on Monday for talks on immigrati

上海夜生活品茶微信on and security. Morales may sign an agreement with Trump declaring Guatemala a safe destination for asylum seekers, wh

ich could prevent many from applying in the United States, according to officials in both governments.

Alongside these international efforts, Trump has sought to deter border crossings with highly publicized crackdowns in the United States.上海夜生活

The operation that Trump said would start on Sunday is an example. ICE is expected to t

arget families whose immigration cases were handled through an expedited court process that began in 2018.

上海夜生活品茶微信The agency has notified about 2,000 of those people that they fa

ce deportation because they failed to appear in court, acting ICE Director Mark Morgan said last month.

Immigration rights activists have complained that in many cases immigrants, espe上海夜生活

cially those involved in expedited hearings, do not receive proper notice of their court dates.

ICE has declined to discuss the weekend’s operation, including whether those families are among those being targeted.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights groups sue上海夜生活品茶微信

d this week to stop the arrests going ahead, asking a court to prevent the deportation of

asylum-seeking families who missed their court dates until they at least get a hearing.

The buddy program a上海品茶微信te study and cultural

exchanges between international and Chinese students, the statement said. Students who joi

n the program carry out activities in teams and students are required to strictly obey its regulations.上海品茶微信

The program, which matches students with common interests and hobbi

es, has been welcomed by both domestic and foreign students, the university said.

上海品茶微信女神会所”The program is actually a win-win situation for both parties. It’s the best opportunity for learning about new lang

uages and cultures,” Mohammad Rasheduzzaman, a student from Bangladesh studying at the university, said.

A temporary regulation published by the school’s international affairs上海品茶微信

office in 2016 shows the longest time a student can join the program is one year.

After that the student has to present a written application to continue in the program.

上海品茶微信女神会所A nationwide wave of arrests of immigrants facing deporta

tion will commence over the weekend, US President Donald Trump said on Friday, confi

rming that the plan, intended to discourage a surge of Central American migrants, was on track after a delay.

The operation is expected to target hundreds of families in 10 cities that have recentl上海品茶微信女神会所

y been ordered deported by an immigration court but have not yet left the country.

上海品茶微信Trump revealed the operation on Twitter last month and then

postponed it. It is unusual for the government to announce deportation operations ahead of time.

“People are coming into this country illegally, we are taking them out legally,” Trump tol上海品茶微信女神会所

d reporters on Friday, calling it a “major operation” that would mainly focus on removing criminals.

In a typical week, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests thousands of immigrants who are staying in t

上海品茶微信he country illegally, according to government data. Most of those arrests are made without any advance publicity.

Immigrant advocates have said advance word of the weekend raids could help some of those targeted to evade arrest.

But the president, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said he wa上海品茶微信女神会所

s not concerned that the advance notice could help targeted immigrants evade arrest.

“If the word gets out, it gets out,” he said.

Since Trump first spoke of the plan, a number of city mayors, nearly上海品茶微信

all Democrats, have repeated their long-standing policies of not cooperating with ICE

officials on deportations and have advertised helplines people can call to understand their rights.上海品茶微信女神会所

Democratic lawmakers, among others, have also sought to inform immigrants of their rights, telling them not to open their door

for ICE unless agents present a court-issued warrant, and not to say or sign anything before speaking with a lawyer.

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.
