Over 200 people including publishers and experts from more than 60 overseas publishin

上海夜生活g houses in 30 plus countries attended the China Book International Foreign Consultants Seminar.

As 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, various stories about the develo

pment of China over the years could be told, said an official with the Publicity Department of the Communist Part上海夜生活女神会所

y of China Central Committee, who expected publishers from home and abroad to strengthen their exchanges and coope

ration based on these vivid stories, and create more works with global significance.

According to Niels Peter Thomas, managing director of the b上海夜生活女神会所

ook section of Springer Nature, to enhance the global influence of Chinese publications,

During an excavatio上海千花网 wooden slip was une

earthed from a well at a 2,200-year-old relic site in the mountainous

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所

rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.

The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d

上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.

The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on

e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所

It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be

cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy

上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn

asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.

After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

ow sharing some of their findings about the Qin era with a display of some 175 slips at A Tale of A S

mall Town, an exhibition at the National Museum of China in Beijing that runs through Sept 6.上海千花网

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

n Slips Museum near the relic site. Bamboo and wooden slips were the primary上海千花网女神会所

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).

Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网

8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep

itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所

own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.

Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

g that of the discovery of Qin’s Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in 1974.

Beijing’s ‘green lung’上海419ital breathing space

Covering 608 hectares, the park is home to 208 different wild animal species, including the yellow-bellie

d weasel and hedgehogs, along with numerous types of birds. Tourists visit the venue throughout the year.上海419

According to the Olympic Park Management Committee, protecting the ecos

上海419女神会所ystem is the top priority, and the park is designed to act as Beijing’s “green lung”-a

n area for leisure and entertainment that meets the increasing demand from local residents for green space.

When the park was completed in June 2008, the proportion of forest area上海419

in Beijing rose to 67 percent and carbon sequestration-a process by which carb

on dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and held in solid or liquid form-reached 4,763 metric tons per ye

上海419女神会所ar. The park releases 5,208 tons of oxygen annually, according to the management committee.

As dusk falls at the park, young men play basketball on outdoor courts, retirees dance in large grou

ps and families use the walkways to exercise. Lovers often sit along the trails, listening to guitar players.上海419

Since 2014, Zhang Yu, 40, an illustrator at a nature and geographical magazine in Beijing for young readers, has spent more than

上海419女神会所100 nights in the park during summer and autumn, searching with a flashlight for signs of hedgehogs.

He even considered bringing a tent to the park late at night to ensure he had sufficient time to track the creatures.

According to Zhang, untended land in the park provides the perfect hab上海419

itat for hedgehogs, and they usually rest and sleep on the edges of grassy areas.

Wang Zhou, 60, from Beijing, who has been a keen bird watcher since 1996, said, “W

上海419女神会所e are lucky to have Olympic Forest Park as one of the areas to observe birds’ behavior.”

Wang, who worked in finance before retiring, said she used to watch birds to ease the pressure of work.

“Every time I saw the birds, especially some new species that sudd上海419

enly appeared, I felt a sense of satisfaction and my spirits quickly rose,” she said.

Wang has also watched birds at other parks in Beijing, such as the Old Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven.上海419女神会所

“Compared with other places, Olympic Forest Park has bushy shrubs an

d untrimmed plants, providing a better environment for wildlife,” she said.

Living the life of Bri上海千花网e a defining science

To spend time with stadium cosmologist Brian Cox is to make human beings reconsider their status – although tiny an

d fragile and finite in this infinite universe – as ecstatic and random rock stars of the galaxy上海千花网品茶微信

There was a remarkable moment when physics professor and TV personality Bri

an Cox was visiting the British Consulate in Hong Kong to deliver a prom上海千花网

otional speech to journalists there. Ten minutes ahead of his talk, the cosmologist who had spent half his life loo

上海千花网king for evidence of the origins of creation as far back as four billion years ago, looks u

p at the projection screen and says there was too much light shining on him that he couldn’t see.

Is there a blind that can be lowered, he asks? No. “Okay, I’ll do my best, but you’ll just have to come to the show to see these ima上海千花网品茶微信

ges,” he jokes, with his mix of wild-eyed, disciplined-mind, boy wonder-esque persona. Cox is referring to his “

stadium cosmology” performance, the Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour, wh上海千花网

ich landed in Hong Kong on June 5, and also visited Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.

上海千花网品茶微信In person, Cox burns like a comet, enlightening eyes and minds by the na

nosecond. He uses state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes and sp

ace probes in his show, with ultra-high-resolution LED technology helping explore the latest missions to planets, the na上海千花网

ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes, and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the unive

rse. He even “journeys” around and into a black hole. “On this new tour, I’m going a step further with technology,” he sa

上海千花网品茶微信ys. “And I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the universe.”

A former pop star of the 1980s and ’90s, Cox is today a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester.

He’s also an author, most recently of Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos (

with Jeff Forshaw), and a broadcaster, known for highly acclaimed BBC science p上海千花网品茶微信

rograms. Cox combines the best of David Attenborough, Carl Sagan and millen

nial thinking in his makeup. In an exclusive chat, we got to know the 51-year-old boy wonder of physics.

“I used to be very frus上海419论坛ed when traveling by air

since I need to spend over 1.5 hours on the subway to get to the Capital airport. But once the Daxing airpo

rt is in operation, it will be cut to 40 minutes,” he said.上海419论坛

“I have bought tickets to my hometown Guangzhou from the new airport for the National Day holi

day, and I’m thrilled to explore the cutting-edge technologies and the interesting design of the terminal,” he added.上海419论坛女神会所

The new airport, constructed to meet China’s surging air service demand and take the pr

essure 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

square 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.

Tickets are generally le 上海419sive than at Capita

Tickets are now available for flights at Beijing Daxing In

ternational Airport, which is scheduled to begin operations before Sept 30. 上海419

On various travel websites, passengers can book tickets from the new

airport to many domestic destinations such as Shanghai, Xiamen in Fujian province, Gua

ngzhou in Guangdong province, Chengdu in Sichuan province and Kunming in Yunnan province. 上海419

Compared to the flights departing from Beijing Capital International Airport, which is l

 上海419品茶微信ocated in the northeastern part of the city, the prices at the new airport are generally cheaper, industry observers said.

Flights to Guangzhou from Daxing airport, for instance, cost less than 1,300 yuan ($

185) for economy class while the lowest price at the Capital airport is nearly 1,800 yuan.

Before the winter season starts in November, domestic flights will be carried out solely by China United Airl 上海419品茶微信

ines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Eastern, which is also the first airline to transfer its operations to Da

xing airport from its current headquarters at Beijing Nanyuan Airport, the company said. 上海419

So far, most of the booked trips will be made during the weeklong National Day holiday from Oct 1 to 7, according to the company.

The airline will operate over 130 flights daily from the new air 上海419品茶微信

port, which will serve a network of over 80 routes and 70 domestic destinations.

Over 20 international routes operated by Finn Air, British Airways, Polish A

irlines and Malaysia Airlines can also be booked, including flights to London; Helsinki; Cas 上海419
