day, and I’m thrilled to explore the cutting

off Beijing Capital International Airport, will serve as the second international airport for Beijing. 上海419论坛With four runways, 268 parking bays and a vast terminal building covering 700,000
meters, the new airport is expected to handle 45 million passengers a year by 2021 and 72 million by 2025. Didi Chuxing, China’s ride-hailing giant, plans to lower its minimum passenger age restricti上海419论坛女神会所
on for teens traveling without a supervising adult from 18 to 16, the company announced Wednesday.
The new adjustment comes months after Didi said in October that children under 18 were not上海419论坛
allowed to use the car-hailing service alone, which later generated heated discussion online.
Some people hold that for users aged between 16 to 18 who have left h上海419论坛
ome for work or study, the age regulation just shut them out of the service that gave
them no alternatives but to turn to illegal cab services, or black cars, the company said.上海419论坛女神会所
“It was never our intention to push some independent minors toward the more dangerou
s gray areas just because our policy requires all minors to take cars with their parents,” the company said.上海419论坛
According to an online poll initiated by Didi in February to seek public opinion on
whether minors can ride Didi alone, over half percent of the participants suppor上海419论坛女神会所
ted children below 18 years old being able to hail a ride without an adult accompanying them.
In another poll, the percentage of support group increased to 80% with the minimum age restriction was changed to 16.

living in Hotan prefecture in the southern Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region 上海419论坛can travel to other parts of China along a newly opened expressway connecting th
e last pr
efecture in Xinjiang to the modern transportation infrastructure in the rest of the country. The expressway, linking Shule county in Kashgar prefecture and Moyu county上海419论坛
in Hotan, stretches 434 kilometers and is a subsection of the G30 National Express
上海419论坛女神会所way, which links Lianyungang in East China’s Jiangsu province with Horgos on the China-Kazakhstan border.
Construction of the expressway began in July 2017 and it opened on July 31. It has a designed speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
The Hotan prefecture had its first expressway linking Moyu county and Hotan cit上海419论坛
y in August last year, but the expressway was not connected with those in other parts of Xinjiang.
Hotan is located in southern Xinjiang, which is known for its hostile environ
上海419论坛女神会所ment and complex geological conditions. It is also one of the poorest regions in China.
Pan Feng, president of a logistics company in Hotan, said the opening of the new expressway is great news for logistics comp
anies as it can shorten the travel time from Kashgar to Hotan from eight hours to just more than four hours.上海419论坛女神会所
“The opening of the expressway will improve traffic infrastructure and benefit the economic development and po
verty alleviation of Hotan,” said Lu Jun, head of the construction team for the expressway.
上海419论坛Extra efforts were taken to overcome construction difficulties and extreme weather, s
uch as sandstorms, rainstorms and flooding and to protect the local ecosystem, he said.
The total length of expressways in Xinjiang is expected to reach 5,234 km by the end of 2019, with上海419论坛
an additional 434 km being built this year, according to the Xinjiang transport department.

arrows with thatched boats, depicting ancient C

上海419论坛ed with images of the ageless Queen Mother o
f the West and a Taoist immortal riding on a deer. The branches are fest ooned with about 400 bronze coins, showing the intricacy and delicacy of ancient Chinese craftsmanship.上海419论坛
On one side of the exhibition wall, a large snake spe
ar model, measuring more than 3 meters in length, is mounted. Accor 上海419论坛品茶微信ding to the exhibition, snake spears were used in the southwestern region of China’s Yunnan province in the second cent
ury BC, where actual snake spears are often found at historical sites. With the deification of Zhang Fei, a famous military co
mmander during the Three Kingdoms period, there is still debate about whether he himself wielded a snake spear.上海419论坛
Adding a little local flavor, the exhibition also displays the original manuscript of the Three Kingdoms m
上海419论坛anga comic by Japanese cartoonist Mitsuteru Yokoyama, a drawing for die-hard fans of the cartoon art form.
Dressed in a T-shirt embroidered with a map of the Three Kingdoms, Torahiko Hara, a fan
who works at Sony Digital Entertainment, says he was interested in the exhibition because of his love for Yokoy上海419论坛品茶微信
ama’s cartoons, adding that, since visiting it, he now understands more about the ancient history behind them.
上海419论坛The exhibition is the largest China-themed display ever held by the Tokyo National Museum, with 85 percent of the exhi
bits on display in Japan for the first time, says Zeniya Masami, executive director of the museum.
Zhou Ming, deputy director of Art Exhibitions China, says he believes the exhi上海419论坛
bition would arouse a new enthusiasm among the Japanese people for the c
ulture of the Three Kingdoms and help them gain a deeper understanding of the period’s history.
上海419论坛品茶微信According to the exhibition, the Three Kingdoms period began a
round 1,800 years ago amid the chaos of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The events of this time, alo
ng with tales about the rise and fall of the era’s various warlords, were recorded and later became popular legends.上海419论坛
They provided the inspiration for numerous works of poetry, literature and painting, leadin
g to the formation of a rich and colorful “Three Kingdoms culture” that still resonates to this day.
Up until now, the stories of the Three Kingdoms have been continuously developed in various forms in Japan, including上海419论坛品茶微信
novels, comics, puppet shows and games, with many characters of the Three Kingdoms familiar to the Japanese people.

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t上海419论坛
hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e
nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:上海419论坛女神会所
State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co
mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.上海419论坛
After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits
as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.
Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel
ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.上海419论坛女神会所
Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo
wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub上海419论坛女神会所
sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.
Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev上海419论坛
er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this
year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account
s for less than 10 percent of the planned total. Only four provinces had started the job.上海419论坛女神会所

ine of them have already secured jobs with average monthly salaries of more than 1 上海419论坛0,000 yuan ($1,457) due to the large demand for crawfish chefs, said Wang Zhong
qiu, a teacher at the vocational college. He ad ded that the other six graduates decided to open their own crawfish restaurant.
According to a report by Mycos, an educational research compa上海419论坛女神会所
ny, the average monthly salary for college graduates in China was 4,624 yuan in 2018.
上海419论坛It is quite common for crawfish chefs with more than three years’ experience to earn 30,000-50,000 yuan a month and the scho
ol plans to enroll another 200 students in crawfish-related majors this year, Wang said.
The school first introduced three majors related to the cooking, marketing and management of crawfish in 2017 and be上海419论坛女神会所
came the first and only college nurturing talent for the crawfish industry, he said.
上海419论坛”Apart from the three majors, it plans to open a new major in crawfish breeding. From raising baby crawfish, transporting the
m to the restaurant and finally bring the dishes to the table, we want to cultivate talent in all crawfish-related areas.”
Despite the good pay, the work is onerous. Chefs have to work o上海419论坛女神会所
vertime and some have to cook hundreds of kilograms of crawfish each day, Wang said.
上海419论坛女神会所The peak season for crawfish is from March to November, so they will earn much less during the slow season, he added.
Huang Yu, 21, is a graduate from the crawfish school. He has ope
ned a crawfish restaurant with his family in Yichang, Hubei province, his hometown.

上海419论坛品茶微信ded, and more than 80 percent joined the Party after the third plenary session of the 11th C
PC Central Committee in 1978. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC in 2012, an average of 3.9 million people have applied to join the Party eve
ry year, with the annual number of members recruited remaining steady at about 2 million in recent years, according to the report.上海419论坛品茶微信
Last year, the CPC recruited nearly 2.06 million new members, 72,000 more than in 2017.
Among those new members, about 850,000
were women, 44.9 percent held junior college degrees or above, and 80 percent were aged 35 or younger. Zhu Lijia, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance, said, “The increase in membership means more people, especially上海419论坛品茶微信
younger generations, are interested in joining the CPC because they have seen the achievements that the Party has led people to gain.
“Meanwhile, as the country is moving to pursue quality development, the Party needs talent from differen
t walks of life. The educational background of the Party members has seen a big improvement in recent years,” he said.上海419论坛品茶微信
The CPC was founded on July 1, 1921. From 1921 to 1949, it led the Chinese people to overt
hrow the rule of imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat-capitalism and establish the PRC.
The CPC has led the Chinese people to develop the country into th

ow ensures rock bands get their just recognition. The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the a上海419论坛女神会所

With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their song上海419论坛女神会所

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bassist Ou Ya

was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.
