As the principal dan上海品茶微信nd dozens of other da

ncers from the Liaoning Ballet of China will take their original ballet Hua Mulan to the United States a

nd Canada in late August, representing the troupe’s first performance of the classic outside of China.上海品茶微信

For Yu, who entered the Liaoning Ballet in 2009, it has been a unique process.

“In the past, I often played the roles of a swan or a princess. This tim上海品茶微信

e, I had to become a man who is ultimately found to be a woman,” she says. To act Mulan’s p

art well, she had to do push-ups and fight with sticks on stage, just like the male dancers.

上海品茶微信The story originates from a Northern Dynasty (386-581) folk song, known as the Ballad of Mulan. The song tells the tal

e of a valiant girl who joins the army on behalf of her ailing father, battles enemies to defend her country and fights with

high distinction. However, she refuses the accolades thrust upon her and ultimately retires to her hometown.上海品茶微信

Besides the physical techniques required, Chinese b

allet cares about portraying its characters’ inner world and expressing emotions.

“Playing the legendary warrior has made me grow up and deepened my understanding of performance, life and Chin上海品茶微信

ese culture,” Yu says. “You should be able to impress yourself before you can impress your audience.”

Qu Zijiao, 57-year-old director of the Liaoning Ballet, says: “To tell Ch

上海品茶微信inese stories to global audiences, the legend of Mulan is more relatable than others.”

She says it is a touching story, and Mulan’s heroic spirit, perseverance, and love fo

r country and peace can resonate with people everywhere, adding that many European and American audiences are

already familiar with her story thanks to Disney’s classic animated film, which introduced上海品茶微信

the legend of Mulan to the West. Additionally, the recent release of initial footage from Disney’s u

pcoming live-action remake of Mulan has sparked renewed interest in the character.

上海品茶微信The 100 plus-minute ballet Hua Mulan incorporates classic and modern art elements that will suit the taste of today’s a

udiences at home and abroad, according to Wang Yong, choreographer-director of the show.

iners developing a taste for table-for-one tren

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

Ministry of Industry and Information Technology data show

ed China’s digital economy had reached more than 27 trillion yuan ($4 trillio

n) in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 20.3 percent, accounting for nearly 33 percent of GDP.

Lu said the growth rate of the number of people working as new media operators in 2017 was mo

re than 10 times that of 2013. The growth comes as more consumers turn from mass media to new me

dia, which provides more information, is faster, has a more diversified presentation and cheaper cost.

Algorithm engineers, in particular, grew at exponential rates. More than fi

ve times as many people worked as algorithm engineers in 2017 than 2013, he said.

“Algorithm is the foundation for artificial intelligence. AI has started to integrate with other industr

ies and already had been successfully implemented in AI plus marketing, finance and assisted medical dia

gnosis. AI engineers will have more value as AI becomes more closely tied with more businesses,” Lu said.

therefore, can be attributed to the uncertainty over their chil

 children’s education-for instance, how many after-school classes should a child take per day and how t

o plan a schedule that would strike the right balance between study and leisure time, homework and hobbies.

Another source of stress for a mom is the relatively rich extra-curricular a

ctivities of other kids, which could prompt her to force her child to do the same. The fear that

her kid would fall behind forces a mom to make the child learn everything that she thinks could be useful.

Chinese parents usually have very high expectations for their kids, so many of them don’t even try to find out what their chil

dren are really good at-and when the kids fail to fulfill their aspirations, the parents feel they have been let down.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.

ent organizations, including stock image platforms, have been debatable and remain a key issue among lawmakers,” she said.

“I believe such copyright agencies will be regulated in the future version of the law after Visual

China’s incident, and our IP protection will also be further strengthened thanks to the case,” she added.

Different from many comments that criticized the company and its business, Chen sai

d it is “Okay” for stock image platforms to profit from selling images or filing copyright lawsuits.

“Proper commercial operations can help defend the rights of individual creators, as it is difficult a

nd costly for individuals to sift through seas of information and find out who infringes their rights,” she said. “Or su

ch platforms create a better environment for copyright owners to easily and effectively safeguard their rights.”

But she suggested the country set up a third-party to supervise

the platforms’ operation to prevent them from exercising the rights beyond the legal scope.

The seized animals and products included ivory, rhinocer

ros horns, pangolin scales, dried sea horses, red corals, and hawksbill turtles, Zheng said.

A major overseas criminal gang once active in smuggling animals to Guangdong province has been busted following the crackdown, he said.

He suggested that further special campaigns will be launched to fight against such smuggling in the coming months.

Water pollution has forced many regions, especially in southern China, to change their sou

rces of drinking water, with many reaching out to the Yangtze River, a report said.

The contamination of water bodies has made drinking water in souther

n China more scarce, despite a dense network of waterways, according to the report, publ

ished earlier this year by the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, an NGO.

A campaign to root out environmental violations at water intake sites is expect

ed to improve things, but environmental authorities should be aware that local governments may choose to aba

ndon their water intake sources to avoid rectifying problems, said Ma Jun, director of the institute.
