n 1977, Wu was admit 上海419论坛o the Central Conservat

ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu

died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛

pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s

 上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.

Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not

accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛

spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the

 上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge

nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.

To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus

ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信

ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma

 上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th

e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi

cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信

Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro

 上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.

Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha

ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信

s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu

 上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q

uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信

mposer and conductor)’s Ghost Opera, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (in New YorkW

ithin a short time, Wu and Kronos embarked on a worldwide musical tour. Their performances were well received.

3D printing to grow hair: A potential cure for baldness上海419论坛

上海419论坛上海品茶Researchers from the Columbia University Irving Medical Center

are making headway in their work to treat human baldness thanks to 3D printing.

The team, led by Angela Christiano, has found a way to grow human hair in a dish using stem cells and 3D printed plastic molds上海419论坛

that mimic the natural microenvironment of hair follicles.For the first time, scientists have successfully gen

erated human hair follicles in a dish without the need for skin implantation. This achievement is owed in part to 3D pr

i上海419论坛上海品茶nting technologies, which enabled the research team to closely recreate the 3D environment in which human hair cells live.

The Marauder’s map in the Harry Potter books has been the i

nspiration for a town’s art trail, according to the BBC. Dunstable’s Invisible Street Art Trail has blac

k and white maps showing more than 20 artworks on pavements that are only revealed in the rain.

Primary school teacher and artist Claire London used pavemen上海419论坛

上海419论坛t stencils which were created with a spray that only becomes visible when wet.

Joanne Bowes, one of the people behind the trail, said she hopes it will get people interested in the town’s history.

上海419论坛上海品茶The works include: Mad Hatters, to represent the hat factories that used to be along the High Street; Footprints, for rem

embrance, next to the Priory Church; Lions, a nod to the chalk lion that overlooks the Dunstable Downs.

The CPC had 90.59 million members at the end of last year, an increase of 1.03 million from the end of 2017, and 4.61 million primary-level Party organizations, up by 39,000, according to the report.上海419论坛品茶微信

It has seen its membership grow from more than 50 when it was founded in 1921 to 4.49 millio

n when the People’s Republic of China was founded in 1949, and now to more than 90 million.上海419论坛

Statistics show that about 99.8 percent of existing Party members joined the CPC after the PRC was foun

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 CPC 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

e world’s second-largest economy and lift 700 million people out of poverty.

China’s liquor brand Kweichow Moutai gave up “Guojiu”, or State-level liquor, in its trademark, and took

down the sign of “Guojiu” from the gate of its plant last Saturday, news website Zaker reported on Sunday.

Li Baofang, chairman and general manager of Moutai Group, said on June 12 the company would stop using

the “Guojiu Moutai” trademark before June 30, and had hired consulting companies for new promotion plans.

Moutai repeatedly applied for “Guojiu Moutai” trademark registration starting from 2001, tho

Trade row must prompt China to explore other markets

Since the Sino-US trade dispute is likely to continue, China should prepare for a long haul. For instance, it should take the opportunity to further diversify its m

arket. What’s reassuring is that in the first quarter, China’s trade with Belt and Road countries grew 7.8 percent, 4.1 pe

rcentage points more than the overall trade growth, and its ratio in total trade increased by 1.1 percentage points.

The US has not only caused damage to the Chinese and wor

ld economies, but also inflicted pain upon itself by imposing higher tariffs of Chinese goods.

More importantly, by deviating from the consensus reached by the

international community and reneging on the promises it made to the world, the US has pushed the t

wo countries from a state of balanced cooperation into a state of prisoner’s dilemma.
