“I can imagine staying here for another eight to 10 years. The problem上海419

Liangzhu Museum re上海419opens to public in Hangzhou

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.

It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所

after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of

上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.

The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.

The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419

ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad

上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”

Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419

After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.

上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led

by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419

Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje

上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信

New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.

Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien

t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.

More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o

f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.

The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult

ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s

ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.

In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.

host 105 works by Venice and Florence artists, including Titian and Tintoretto. The pieces were st

“All these great masters are back on view here in the Uffizi in new spaciou

s halls where we can have many visitors to admire them,” says Uffizi’s director, Eike Schmidt.

“It is as if a second, new museum had opened inside the gallery,” he adds.

Titian’s Venus of Urbino hangs in a room with two other paintings and is

among the most celebrated canvas on display in the new section of the Florence art gallery.

A leak that may have come from the Australian Secu

ty Intelligence Organization suggested that Chinese-Australians contesting local government elections represented securit

y threats because they might have belonged to an organization called the “Australian Council for the Promotion of Peace

ful Reunification of China”. Actually, none of the candidates mentioned has ever been associated with ag

itation or lobbying on issues of concern to Beijing such as the South China Sea, Taiwan or Tibet.

Worst example of anti-China prejudice

One of the worst examples of anti-China prejudices comes from a bo

ok written by a professor of public ethics, Clive Hamilton-Silent Invasion published in earl

y 2018. On pages 280-281 Hamilton writes that up to 40 percent of the Chinese in Australia are disloyal. Speci

fically, he says they are ready “to take to the streets to express their loyalty to Beijing-in other words, to Australia’s enemy”.

The monkeys implanted with human genes developed bett

better short-term memory and faster reaction times compared with the control group, acco

rding findings published March 27 in the China-based journal National Science Review.

The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.

The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth

ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.

The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.

In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza

tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every

step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

Indeed, Premier Li Keqiang, who led China’s negotiati

tions at the Brussels summit, has pledged to intensify discussions on the rules concerning in

dustrial subsidies, a priority for the WTO reform for the EU. This is being seen as a breakthrough by the EU side.

In fact, almost all countries provide subsidies for domestic companies in certain sectors, and i

n most cases, China has given subsidies to Chinese companies in strict accordance with WTO rules as its ultim

ate goal is to achieve complete marketization. Yet intensifying discussions on industrial subsidies and other

sensitive issues, including intellectual property rights protection, is a step that must be taken to not only addre

ss WTO members’ concerns, but also invigorate the organization and the global trading system.

China, US should jointly promote WTO reform

Chen Fengying, a senior researcher in world economy at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations

The Office of the United States Trade Representative seems to have made dr

iving the WTO reform its priority so that Washington can claim the discourse rights in global t

rade mechanisms and lead the process for making new trade rules and establishing a new global trading system.
