上海夜生活品茶微信”Chinese culture seeks a balance between yin and yang. We believe that only in this way could people build a harmonious worl
d. Chinese kung fu shares more of a reputation abroad than other Chinese cultural elements, like Beijing Opera, pap
er-cutting, painting, etc,” said Liu Biqi, a contestant who is a member of the Mongolian ethnic group.上海夜生活
Others, however, apparently have different views. Liu is one of them. “If we want to build cultural confidence, and want
上海夜生活品茶微信to make our voice heard by the world, we have got to change,” Liu said. Her opinions were those of reformists. She
might reflect her own experience of pervasive prejudice and hope to change the status quo. But on the whole, most stu
dents showed great interest in and confidence over the future of traditional Chinese culture.上海夜生活
The students’ enthusiasm deeply impressed Professor Guo, the judge of the contest. “The contest this year shows a big d
ifference from previous ones. The contestants now are more interested in world affairs and the role China should pla
上海夜生活品茶微信y in the international community. They have broader perspectives and are more passionate in dealing with common ch
allenges the whole universe is facing, and their views are more diversified,” Guo said.
Professor He, director of the College of Liberal Arts & Law, said that the competition was not just a test of stu上海夜生活
dents’ English capability, but also an expression of students’ patriotism and global horizon. Keeping track of both wo

era of globalization are priorities in higher education, especially for liberal arts students.The contestants’ passion for
traditional Chinese culture is the epitome of all college students’ reflection on Chinese culture in China. They grew up
in a prosperous and dynamic society with unlimited potential built by the older generations. Soon or later, they will ta上海夜生活品茶微信

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

The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.
上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra
pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s
hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园
It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa
上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per
formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.
The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on
e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp
ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap
abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.
Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio
n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc
ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to
the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di
mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.
In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef
ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w
hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.
Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre
ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”
Little has been revealed about what each party actually said during their lat
est conversation. But Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He’s phone call with US Trade Re上海419论坛
presentative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday has made headlines anyway.
上海419论坛女神会所Information available so far suggests the conversation was at least partly
about bringing the negotiators back to the negotiating table.
Although tentative, this surely is a constructive initial step toward building on the all-impor上海419论坛
tant outcome of the June 29 Osaka meeting between the Chinese and US leaders, which secured a pause in th
上海419论坛女神会所e two countries’ trade war. After all, this was the first high-level contact at the operational level since then.
Progress was made after the two leaders agreed to further negotiations when they met
in December, and it is to be hoped that will be the case after their consensus this time.上海419论坛
However, considering how the subsequent talks broke down, how the two part
上海419论坛女神会所ies responded, and what they want from each other, it would be advisable to be realistic about what to exp
ect, otherwise the trade impasse will be perpetuated and their respective economies will continue to suffer.
Both countries need and want a trade deal and fine trading ties. This is the understa上海419论坛
nding both countries have reached after a grueling year of tit-for-tat tariffs. Which is why, despite all the dr
上海419论坛女神会所awbacks, we remain convinced Beijing and Washington will indeed make every effort to find a way out.
While Beijing is fighting fiercely against the rising noise of “decoupling” the C
hinese and US economies, the latter appears equally anxious for that not to happen. If Beijing is driven mostly by con上海419论坛女神会所
cerns about looming economic woes, Washington has the 2020 election as an additional incentive.
But there is one crucial difference; the young man is not alone but wi
th his father. That scene coincides with the Chinese title of this TV series, namely “stud上海419论坛女神会所
ying abroad with daddy”. The plot depicts the lives of three young Chinese s
上海419论坛tudents and their fathers, or mothers, who accompany them to a developed cou
ntry. Predicaments then arise. Study problems, issues with the homestay family, exam cheating and a campus shooting. This has ignited responses fro
m viewers, with mixed voices including both positive and faultfinding critical comments.上海419论坛
Increasing numbers of Chinese students are opting to go abroad to further their studies in colleges and universities. According
上海419论坛女神会所to data from UNESCO, overseas Chinese students now account for
14 percent of the global total. China tops the rankings of international stu
dents, according to Xinhua News Agency, reaching 660,000 in 2018. Of these 596,300 are self-funded.
The TV series has attracted a huge number of viewers and “overseas stu上海419论坛女神会所
dents” is a hot topic for online comment. On Sina Weibo, the com
ments of the hashtag about the TV series have hit more than 1.1 million.上海419论坛
Few Chinese families are wealthy enough to dispatch a parent to help a student face the challenges of life overseas.
上海419论坛女神会所Lucy Zhu, for example, points to her own experiences. “One day, in my seni
or year, I was driving, but suddenly my car was hit by another car being driven by a US te
enager. I had to deal with all the case proceedings and the insurance claim every step of the way,” she recalls.上海419论坛
In more ways than one, being an overseas student means there is a great learning curve. Jane Yang, now a US citizen, from Heb
ei province, studied as an international student at the University of Minnesota in 1988. “The early years a上海419论坛女神会所
broad, looking back, made me a more independent, open-minded person,” she says.
To Zhang Shuwei, the 20-something producer of the series, “the keyword
is more ‘daddy’ than ‘study abroad”‘, since the plot also depicts the lives of the three pa上海419论坛女神会所
rents, who accompany their children. Audience response suggests that they would like to learn more about the st
udents and their travails. The show has a rating of 3.5 out of 5 on review site Douban.
Yet on the other hand, the struggles of the overseas students portrayed in the TV series s
till managed to reveal typical issues faced or experienced by Chinese students who study abroad.
