d studies in more developed areas in China.Tsering Lhakyi, born in the 1990s, was raised in Tibet’s Nagchu prefecture. Because of h

er high scores in the primary school, she was admitted to an inland Tibetan middle school. After the national colle

ge entrance exam, she applied to a university in Yantai, Shandong province, because she “wanted to see the sea”.

“The inland class truly taught me a lot about many new things,” sh

e said. As a fan of music, Tsering was once a singer in a bar and released two singles in Tibetan.

In 2017, she went on a popular talent show called Sing! Chi

na and became a sensation in the music industry thanks to her u

nique style of music. Before Tsering, there were no other Tibetan contestants on the show, she said.

“People thought Tibetan singers were all about ethnic

music, but I wanted to break that stereotype,” she said.

The Tianjin cyberspace affairs authority decided that

he platform’s administrators failed to detect in time illegal user content, some of which seriously breached the law, the statement said.

The company said it was not clear when the platform – which shut down April 11 for addres

s the situation – will resume service, but that it will notify clients when this is confirmed.

The punitive measures followed the false claims from the company regarding copy

right of the recently released black hole picture, which angered a number of media platforms.

The issue received public attention after the Chinese Communist Yo

uth League accused Visual China of selling images of the national flag and national emblem on its website.

The company said that the photos were uploaded by users and it failed to supervise this.

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.

I’d like to see more films made in China reaching out to the world,” said American dir

ector Rob Minkoff, jury president at the main competition of the 2019 Beijing International Film Festival.

Best known for the celebrated Disney classic The Lion King, Minkoff has also directed a num

ber of animated films including Stuart LittleThe Haunted Mansion and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

In a press conference held last Thursday, Minkoff said Beijing is the heart

of the Chinese film industry. The BIFF attracts film productions from around the world, boo

sting development of filmmaking. With a global jury panel, the festival has become an international affair.

In light of the remarkable progress made by online subscription services like Netflix

and Amazon, Minkoff thinks these platforms offer a promising alternative to big-budget Hollywood blockbusters.

Having closely worked with Netflix on an original animated series based on Anna Dewdney’s picture book franchise Llama Lla

ma, he thinks its business model guarantees more liberty for the creator, thereby leading to more eclectic content.

We are optimistic about the physical records market

We are optimistic about the physical records market

in China though it will take some time to recapture the glory years of the 1990s,” Hou

says. “The completion of the factory shows that China’s vinyl record production, wh

ich originated in Shanghai in the 1920s, is ready to take off again in the same city.”

According to Nielsen Music’s sales report for 2018, 16.8 million vinyl recor

ds were sold in North America over the year, 15 percent more than the year before.

A vinyl revival in China started in 2005 and then in 2012, says Zheng

Yu, a record shop owner in Beijing. The boom is the result of a commercial redisco

very and appreciation of vinyl records among collectors and record stores, he says.

“Life is improving all the time in China and some listeners have realized that the format gives off a better sound. It’

s not only old fans who grew up buying and listening to vinyl but younger listeners, too. The

y’ve grown up with the internet but see vinyls as a kind of tangible entertainment and as arresting works of art.”
