Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is

a popular tourist destination, is trying to regain its past glory as a center for Peking Opera.上海千花坊女神会所

Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha

n 200 years. In 2010 UNESCO declared Peking Opera an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op

era summer camp from July 19 to 24, hoping to attract young students from around the country.

The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所

oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.

The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb

上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.

Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所

g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.

Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d

uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.

After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for

ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f

rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.

A former factory and Beijing landmark has been transfo

上海419女神会所rmed into an intangible cultural heritage park in the capital’s downtown.

Several modern-looking buildings and a big lawn at its heart easily set Yongyuan apart from its hutong surroundings.

Yongyuan park sits on Xingfu Street in Beijing’s Dongcheng district where the Sanlu P上海419

lant, a well-known cosmetics manufacturer back in the ’80s and ’90s, once stood.

上海419女神会所The Sanlu Plant’s Dabao skincare brand was a household name nationwide, and the plant develope

d more than 100 products in markets such as hair care and fragrances. It contributed over 100 mil

lion yuan ($14.57 million) to the economy in the 1990s, making it Beijing’s number one taxpayer.上海419

In 2003, the plant’s cosmetics production line was transferred

out of the city, leaving the land at the center of the capital open for new use.

The Sanlu Plant began its search for a tenant and in 2018, Hong上海419

hina Coast Guard launched its first public hotline on Wednesday with the 24-hour service accessible by dialing 95110. It is expe

The hotline is designed to handle seven issues in particular inclu

上海419品茶微信ding reports of smuggling, illegal exploitation of resources or unauthorized utilization of un

inhabited islands as well as provide enhanced monitoring and protection of coastal regions.

Reports of submarine cables or pipelines being operated without permission and acti

vities that might endanger existing pipelines can also be addressed via the hotline.上海419品茶微信

People can also call to report unauthorized projects, construction and waste disposal that pose risks to the marine ecological environment.

Apart from criminal and public security cases, the hotline also covers illegal fishi

上海419ng, fishing disputes and other issues to help support the general work of the coast guard.

The hotline can be directly called by fixed-line phones and mobile phones. When on

the open sea or from other countries, the service can accessed by calling 010-6899-5110.上海419

In July last year, China Coast Guard was transferred from civilian control under the State Council and the State Oceanic Adm

上海419品茶微信inistration to the People’s Armed Police Force under the command of the Central Military Commission.

China Coast Guard serves as a coordinating agency f

or maritime search and rescue and law enforcement in the territorial waters of China.

It is tasked上海419 with the patrol of territorial waters and disputed territories, anti-smuggling, anti-piracy, maritime policing and

No matter how the i上海419ion changes,Chinause, the c

ina will firmly 上海419女神会所support the DPRK’s socialist cause, the country’s new strategic line and its efforts

to promote the political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard regional peace and stability, Xi said.上海419品茶微信

On behalf of the Party, government and people of China, Xi expressed gratitude for the warm rec

上海419eption and thoughtful arrangements from the DPRK. The friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere thr

oughout the visit has reflected the deep friendship between the two parties and two countries, Xi said.

Hailing the visit as a great success, Xi said that it has strengthened上海419品茶微信

the traditional friendship between China and the DPRK, set the direction for the deve

上海419lopment of bilateral ties in the new period and demonstrated the two countries’ firm determination to promote th

e political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard peace and stability of the region.

The visit took place in this important year, which marks the 70th anni

versary of diplomatic relations. It is also the fifth meeting between the two leaders in the pa上海419品茶微信

st 15 months, Xi said, adding that both are vivid demonstrations of the vitality of China-DPRK traditional friendship.

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419

ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419

nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信

increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which

上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r

estoration 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 experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信

ges 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.

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419

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 bec

上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a

nd on the other hand, she wanted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

According to the producers, Favreau went on a safari to Africa six months befor

During his trip, the original film was used as frame of reference several times-first, when Favreau and other travelers saw a wart上海夜网

 a century ago, with the idea revived after the foundation of the People’s Re

public of China in 1949, but various hurdles prevented it from progressing. Trains fina上海会所

lly began running on the first section of the line to open, from Chengdu to Ya’an in Sichuan province, in December.

上海会所The third section of the line, between Ya’an and Nyingchi, will be one

of the world’s most challenging railway projects because it winds through the Sichuan Ba

sin, Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau and Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, climbing from 600 meters above sea level to nearly 4,5上海会所

00 meters, according to Zhao Jian, a professor of rail transportation at Beijing Jiaotong University.

“It will go through complicated geological conditions fraught with avala

nches, landslides, earthquakes, heat, karst caves and underground streams,” he said.上海会所

At its annual work conference in January, national railway

上海会所品茶微信operator China State Railway Group, which was then called China Railway Corp, said it would co

mplete the feasibility study for the Ya’an-Nyingchi section by June and finish preparations for construction by th

e end of September. The group is also in charge of national railway planning and construction.上海会所

Things seem to have been progressing rapidly in the past month. People’s Railway Dail

‘an-Nyingchi section on June 4 and reached a consensus that would be passed on.

On June 17, Peng Qinghua, Party secretary of Sichuan, said at a news confere

“Bridges and tunnels will cover over 90 percent of the line, which mea

The next day, when China State Railway Group announced its name change, finalizing its restructuring, it was disc

haoyang Theatre amaz上海品茶微信ith aerial acrobatics

Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for electrifying and awe-inspir

ing Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海品茶微信

Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a venue for dance dra

上海品茶微信女神会所mas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.

After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perm

anent theme. Chinese acrobatics is a spectacular performance art characterized by amazing physical feat上海品茶微信

s and gravity-defying stunts, inspired by the struggle between humans and nature.

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was in

上海品茶微信女神会所spired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app

eared during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). It was refined during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC

-AD 24), when pole climbing and tightrope walking debuted on stage. The most famous performance at that time, Gua上海品茶微信

ng Chang Bai Xi, saw a rich variety of acrobatic acts performed simultaneously in a public square.

Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, including up to four d上海品茶微信

aily shows in its 1,300-seat performance hall during peak season from May to October.

上海品茶微信女神会所Many renowned acrobatics troupes have graced the stage at the theater, am

ong them Deyang Acrobatic Troupe from Southwest China’s Sichuan province, w

hich has performed its acrobatics show Flying in Chaoyang Theatre for almost 20 years.上海品茶微信

The show celebrates the ancient worship of the sun and birds by the people of Sichuan thousands of years ago. Its name was

inspired by the notion that one day the human mind and body would be able to fly freely.上海品茶微信女神会所

The storytelling mixes flips, falls, dance and high-wire spectacle with the latest in high-tech sound and lighting, to whisk the

audiences away to the world of Sichuan some 3,000 years ago. At the show’s climax, live peacocks and macaws fr

om Sichuan fly over the audience to land and perch on the hands of the performers on stage.

上海后花园anager of security markets at Splunk, delivers a speech during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d

ark data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org

anization’s s上海后花园女神会所ystems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.

“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opport上海后花园

unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da上海后花园女神会所

ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell

上海后花园igence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.

Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 milli上海后花园女神会所

“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their bu

“We put that in the GPS and we’ll get as close as we can,” Fernandez said.

上海419品茶微信In Ridgecrest, local fire and police officials said they were initially swamped by calls for medical and ambulance servi

ce. But police Chief Jed McLaughlin said there was “nothing but minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, by the grace of God.”

Two building fires — one involving a mobile home — were quickly doused, McLaughlin said, and natural gas lines where leaks were reported were shut off.

In Trona, a town of about 2,000 people considered the gateway to Death Valley, fire officials said up to 50 structures were damaged.上海419品茶微信

San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood said FEMA delivered a tractor-trailer full of bottle

“The only way to get food is to drive to Ridgecrest, and with only t上海419

“I would say 70% of my inventory is on the floor, broken,” he said. “Ev

But he has stopped cleaning up, believing another earthquake is on the way.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technol

ogy and a former science adviser at the US Geological Survey, said the new quake pro

bably ruptured along about 25 miles (40 kilometers) of fault line and was part of a continuing sequence.

The seismic activity is unlikely to affect fault lines outside of the area, Jones said, noting that the gigantic San Andreas Fault is far away.

Egill Hauksson, another Caltech seismologist, said later in the day that scientists believe the continuing seque

nce could produce more than 30,000 quakes of magnitude 1 or greater over six months.

He said the probability of a magnitude 7 over the next week is about 3%, but one or two magnitude 6 quakes are expected.
