 in the International Table Tennis Championships in Tianjin, China. In 2005, he co

上海419品茶微信mpeted again in the event in Shanghai, where he and his former teammates from China enjoyed a get-together.

“We shared a youth and a dream,” said Cheng, who over the years has sent more than a few

US players to national and international competitions. “Looking back, I’m a natural teacher.”上海419

Cheng’s last appearance in the World Table Tennis Championships was in 2009 in Yokohama, Japan, when he was 51.

上海419Last month, Zhang had his own reunion when he trained with the Beijing Provincial Team. “Some of my former teamm

ates have today become the main strength for Chinese table tennis. And I feel so happy for them – I really am,” he said. “But上海419品茶微信

I have no regrets – what I have learned and what I have been through here have made me a more rounded person.”

上海419An emotional moment came rather unexpectedly for Zhang one morning. “I was at the table hitti

ng at balls, and there they came, a group of young players in their early teens. One moment, they were rol

licking boys and girls; the next, they had positioned themselves in front of the table, shifting slightly left and right, and t上海419品茶微信

heir countenance started to change,” said Zhang. “Between us, we shared a champion’s dream.”

上海419The Ministry of Natural Resources on Thursday ordered an investigation into how

the hit TV romance Go Go Squid! featured a map incorrectly showing China’s borders.

The TV series, focusing on groups of young people in cybersecurity competitions, used the map in an episode ide上海419品茶微信

ntifying where the final round of an international cybersecurity tournament will be held.

上海419According to the ministry, mistakes on the map used in the teleplay include

that it incorrectly delineated the boundaries of the southern areas of the Tibet auton

omous region, and the colors for Taiwan and Hainan islands were different from other parts of China.上海419

The dotted line to indicate Chinese islands in the South China Sea was also missing.

上海419The problematic map, in a scene lasting 15 seconds, was first found by netizens as the episode was aired on Wednesday.

The ministry noticed the report and issued a statement on its website saying that the map h

ad not been submitted for official review and approval before the show aired last month.上海419品茶微信

So far, the map has been removed from the TV romance at video platforms such as Tencent Video.

A previous release sa 上海419Heyu was a former pol

 to rehear the case, as it believed after a series of investigations, reviews of files and materials, as well a

 上海419品茶微信s visits with people involved in the case, that the 2007 ruling was based on the wrongful application of laws.

The 1999 ruling will also be reviewed at the rehearing, the court added.

The case received national attention in April when a local newspaper reported several gangs, including one led by Sun, were 上海419

smashed in a crackdown against organized crimes in Kunming. Sun was then detained for the gang activities.

The case triggered widespread public concern over possible corruption in the judicial and prison syst

 上海419品茶微信ems after follow-up stories discovered Sun was the same man convicted of the multiple charges in 1

998 and that he had therefore mysteriously escaped death and been living as a free man.

Sun became shareholder of several enterprises and controlled many bars after leaving prison. 上海419

As the controversies were spreading on Chinese social media, a central inspection group to fight gangrelated cri

 上海419品茶微信mes arrived in Yunnan, and demanded a thorough investigation of how Sun appeared to have escaped justice.

In an early release of the inspection group in May, 11 people in Yunnan, including a former senior prison official and a local high cou 上海419

rt judge, had been detained over their possible roles in helping Sun escape capital punishment.

By Friday, the number of officials involved in Sun’s case had increased to 20, according to the official release.

 上海419品茶微信Sun’s case also sparked public speculation because of his various identiti

es and family connections, who were widely believed to have sheltered his legal activities.

However, specific information about Sun’s family released on Friday shows that statements previously spread online were u 上海419

ntrue, especially the speculation that Sun’s biological father was a very influential person.

 上海419品茶微信Chen Yue, Sun’s biological father, joined the Kunming Public Security Bureau in 1 973 aft

er leaving the army. He divorced Sun’s mother, Sun Heyu, in 1982, and left the police in 1985

With the decline in th上海419ork, consumption has

s also started to drop, partly due to the psychological effect of the viru

s, which has made some people reluctant to eat pork and so they turn to other meat, he said.上海419品茶微信

“The supply of alternatives to pork, such as poultry, will increase in

上海419the next two years, which will help ease the gap between the supply and demand of pork.”

More convenient immigration policies will be adopted nationwide starting Aug 1 that make it easier for foreig

n talent to come to China, the National Immigration Administration said on Wednesday.上海419品茶微信

The 12 new policies aim to attract foreign talent, outstanding youths and overseas Chinese to inn

上海419ovate, start businesses, study and work in China to help promote economic and social development.

The policies have been gradually implemented in some free trade zones in 16 provinces and municipalities, includi

ng Shanghai, Beijing and Fujian province, since 2015, said the Ministry of Public Security.上海419品茶微信

Their extension will allow a wider range of people across the country to apply for permanent residency, long-term visas and residence p

ermits, said Chen Bin, head of the immigration authority’s department of foreigner administration.

上海419The new policies add three types of people to those eligible for permanent residency.

The first category covers high-level foreign talent, inclu

ding people who have made significant contributions and those in special demand.

The second applies to foreigners working in China. They need to have wor上海419品茶微信

ked in the country for at least four consecutive years, and to have lived in the country for no l

ess than six months a year. Their annual income should be at least six times the average for local urban employ

上海419ees, and their annual personal income tax should be no less than 20 percent of their salary.

The third category refers to overseas Chinese who have a doctoral de上海419品茶微信

gree or who have worked in national key development areas in China for at least f

our consecutive years and who have lived in China for at least six months a year.

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.

Following the DPP’s id上海419aking Taiwan an ind

ependent entity, the island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-ind

ependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, sinc上海419

e she took office in 2016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, ope

上海419品茶微信nly pitched himself as a worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai admini

stration and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has h上海419

eld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

上海419品茶微信But at the instigation of the US administration, thanks to its acts and resolutions and promise of support, the DPP co

uld try to further push forward its “pro-independence” agenda and cross the red line and worsen the situation ac

ross the Straits. Therefore, the US should review its policy and stop selling dreams to the Taiwan authorities.上海419

The Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 is a serious violation of the one China principle a

上海419品茶微信nd the three joint communiqués, which the Sino-US relationship is built on. The US’ int

erference in China’s internal affairs will not only endanger one of the world’s most important bilateral ties and jeo

pardize peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, but also increase the possibility of the mainland using w上海419

hatever means necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.

上海419品茶微信The US has frequently meddled in Taiwan affairs, which has significa

ntly undermined Sino-US ties, creating worries and risks across the Straits.

But since China is committed to safeguarding its sovereignty and territo

rial integrity, and achieving national reunification, the US should not hope to succ上海419品茶微信

eed in its design of splitting the country by leading the island authorities down the garden path.

eTV series, Over the Sea I 上海419 You, has recently be

A recent Chinese TV series highlights the challenges of adapting to new culture, Zhu Dunhua reports.

Midnight. Freezing. Another country, far from home. The events of that night are sear上海419品茶微信

ed in Lucy Zhu’s memory. A fully packed suitcase straining to keep its contents from spilling. A long walk to her ca

上海419mpus amid a snowstorm in Lansing, Michigan, the United States after a 13-hour-long flight from Beijing.

Large snowflakes flutter onto her clothes as she tries to protect her face a

nd eyes from the wind that cuts like a knife. The bitter cold seems to penetrate her bones.上海419

After the airport shuttle bus dropped her at the bus station, she tried to get a cab or a lift, but to no avail. The late hour and th

上海419品茶微信e weather seemed to conspire against her. She had no option but to lug her suitcase for more than 40 minutes back to

the university dorm as the-19 C temperature seemed to taunt her for returning after Christmas break.

Zhu, who studied in Michigan State University, part of her seven years spent overseas, re上海419

calls that night and other challenges she faced. “It was one of the most unforgettable nights in my early

上海419years of studying abroad, and there have been more dilemmas, much harsher than physical cold and pain. Besides trying to a

dapt to a new environment, I also needed to learn how to live independently using a foreign language.”

Zhu’s midnight plight, and the sense of despair, have been experienced in various forms by international students. A上海419品茶微信

fter all, one of the great lessons learned by these students is how to manage outside of the campus. This challenge is

reflected in the TV series Over the Sea I Come to You, broadcast on Dragon TV and Zhejiang Satellite TV from June 13 to July 9.上海419品茶微信

When Zhu, 24, now an employee of an international hotel mana

gement company in Shanghai, watched it recently, she was touched by a similar sc

ene. Huang Xiaodong (acted by Zeng Shunxi), a young overseas student, on his first day in a foreign land, drags his l

uggage in the middle of the night to school after the car he was being driven in breaks down.

Ron Mikulaco, 51, and his nephew, 23-year-old Brad Fernandez, stood on 178 on Saturday looking at the cracks.

上海419品茶微信The pair drove from Huntington Beach, some 170 miles (274 k

ilometers) southwest of Ridgecrest. Mikulaco, an amateur geologist, wanted to show his nep

hew “the power of Mother Nature,” and they had the epicenter’s latitude and longitude coordinates ready.上海419

“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

d water because of damage to water lines. Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for the county.

上海419Julia Doss, who maintains the Trona Neighborhood Watch page on Facebook, sai

d the only food store in town is a Family Dollar store that was shuttered Saturday.

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

hree gas stations in town I’m worried we may soon run out of fuel,” Doss said.

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

ery time you sweep and you put stuff in the dust bin, you’re putting $200 in the trash.”

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.

“But the adoption of (overly aggressive) macro-polices should be avoided” and there is no need to r

Finance ministers and central bank governors from the G20 group gathered in Fukuoka, Japan, over the weekend and discuss

Finance Minister Liu Kun warned at the G20 meeting that protectionism co
