It may sound cool but it is challenging to start a band. But for young music
ians who yearn to do just that, a variety show Let‘s Band aims to help them.娱乐地图
The show, financed by streaming giant Youku and produced by the Shanghai-b
ased company Paul Edward Production, has been running on Youku since
娱乐地图女神会所Aug 17, one episode each Saturday. The last episode is scheduled for November.
In the show, pop musicians Wang Feng, Li Ronghao, Bai Jugang and Am
ber Kuo serve as the “mentors”, and their job is to judge the contestants’ performances. The sho娱乐地图
w features 75 young aspirants who were shortlisted from around 1,000 aspirants.
Among the 75 competitors are former champion of the popular show The Voice of
China, students of Berklee College of Music, and musicians from underground bands.娱乐地图女神会所
In the first episode, there were competitions in six c
ategories — vocal, guitar, bass, drum, electric instrument and classical instrument.娱乐地图
The final winners will be part of a band, which will
be assisted by the producers to stage performances around the country.
娱乐地图女神会所Speaking about the show, Cen Junyi, the chief producer, says: “We
found that a majority of youngsters born in 2000s are fond of music and know a
bout bands. So, trying to set up a band is fairly common for some young people.”娱乐地图
Director Li Yixun says Chinese audiences can now understand different genres of m
usic as a number of music-themed variety shows have been made over the last decade.娱乐地图女神会所
“So, now is a good time to dive deeper and make a more professional music show,” he says.
“We also want the show to convey the message that band music has evolved into many diverse forms now.”

Last week, Liu Xiaoming, the Chinese ambassador to the UK, said in a press con
ference in London that no foreign country should interfere in Hong Kong affairs.
上海龙凤419女神会所Liu also said the Western media have inescapable r
esponsibility for the current situation in Hong Kong, as selective reporti
ng and distortion have resulted in the prevalence of wrong information and have misled the public.上海龙凤419
Galloway echoed Liu’s view, adding: “This is part of a spectrum of attacks which ar
e designed to slow China’s advance, weaken China’s internal cohesion, with上海龙凤419
a view to stopping China from becoming the most important economy and country in the world.”
On Aug 12, the protesters marched into the Hong Kong International Airport and brought the pre上海龙凤419
mises to a standstill. The Hong Kong police’s handling of the situation was widely criticized by the Wes
上海龙凤419tern media, but Galloway argued that was not honestly dealt with by the Western press.
“What, in fact, is an example of light-handed police, is portrayed in the West
ern media as tyrannical, dictatorial policing. And that’s simply, objectively, not true.上海龙凤419女神会所
“If this was England, still more if it was in France, if Charles d
e Gaulle Airport was seized by protesters and had to be c
losed… they would be cleared violently within the first hours of such a protest,” he added.上海龙凤419
Martin Jacques, one of Britain’s best-known Sinologists, recently expressed his views on the

e interest rate regime on Saturday. It decided to use the loan prime rate (LPR), the price of loans banks offer to their best cli
ents, as a new reference for bank loans, instead of the existing one-year benchmark lending rate.上海千花网
The new LPR was reported for the first time on Tuesday at 4.25 percent for one-year loans, low
上海千花网女神会所er than the 4.35 percent one-year benchmark lending rate which has been unchanged since August 2015. The LP
R for five-year loans was at 4.85 percent, according to the National Interbank Funding Center.
Many analysts have seen the new measure as an alternativ上海千花网女神会所
e way of cutting overall interest rates. In response, central bank officials said the reform itself
cannot replace the monetary policy or other policies, but it can improve the effectiveness of monetary policy.
Sun Guofeng, head of the central bank’s Monetary Policy Department, said the market-oriented inte上海千花网女神会所
rest rate reform will not have a direct impact on the renminbi exchange rate. “The market rates are directly
上海千花网related to the exchange rate, but this reform is not involved with changes of market rates.”
He said the current interest rate spread between China and the United States “is within a comfortable zone”.
While many developed countries use monetary easing to spur econ上海千花网女神会所
omic growth, China is the only country among major economies to retain a normal mone
上海千花网tary policy, and the valuation of yuan-denominated assets is still at a relatively lower level. All of these factors can hel
p to maintain the renminbi exchange rate at a stable and adaptive level, Sun added.
Even under the new scheme, the interest rate level for mortgage loans will not decline, as the government will not ease the rea上海千花网女神会所
l estate control policy nor use real estate as a tool to stimulate short-term economic growth, said
Liu, who disclosed that the interest rate policy for personal mortgages will be revealed in several days.
India-controlled Kashmir－Indian authorities reimposed restrictions on movem
ent in parts of India-controlled Kashmir’s biggest city, Srinagar, on Sunday after overnight clashes between resid爱上海
ents and police in which dozens were injured, two senior officials and eyewitnesses said.
爱上海女神会所Since Saturday, there have been a series of protests against the decision on Aug 5 by India
n Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government to revoke the autonomy of the region.
The officials said security forces had been pelted爱上海
with stones on 47 occasions on Saturday night in the Kashmir Valle
y, and more than 20 on Sunday. One said the protests were growing more intense.
爱上海On Saturday, about two dozen people reported to Srinagar’s two main hospitals with injuries, mainly from pellets fired by Ind
ian forces, said the officials, who declined to be named. Residents and police said m爱上海
any people with pellet wounds were not seeking treatment for fear of being identified and arrested.
The state and federal governments did not respond to questions about the number of incidents and the level of injuries.
India has imposed a security lockdown in its portion of Kashmir爱上海女神会所
to avoid violence in reaction to the move to change the territory’s status.
The government has said it was gradually restoring phone lines and easing the lockdown,爱上海
but changes were slow. Public buses were running in rural areas, but soldiers limited
the movement of people on mostly deserted streets in Srinagar, the region’s main city.爱上海女神会所

Qiao Lei, CEO of BlingABC, an online English teaching platform in Beijing that is a subsid
上海419论坛品茶微信iary of New Oriental Education and Technology Group, said the company has maintained strict
qualification requirements for all foreign teachers since it was founded two years ago.
All teachers must be native speakers, hold a bachelor’s degree along with CELTA (Cert上海419论坛
ificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or TES
OL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificates. In addition, all the上海419论坛品茶微信
ir relevant information and qualifications are open to general scrutiny on its platform, he said.
The company has adopted an evaluation system based on credit for its foreign teachers.上海419论坛
Points are deducted from those who violate company regulations, such as arriving late or being the subject of co
mplaints from parents, which will affect their salary and position, Qiao added.
上海419论坛品茶微信Kelly Hong, director of Bling-ABC’s Center of Foreign Teacher Management, said the c
ompany records all classes on its platform and they are reviewed by staff members and parents.
“Some parents may have low requirements for foreign teachers and thin上海419论坛
k that native speakers should be able to teach English well, but that’s simply not the ca
se－just like not every Chinese person is able to teach the Chinese language,” she said.
上海419论坛品茶微信Hong added that establishments still need professionals who know how to manage a class, understand body lang
uage, can energize students and know the basic principles and methods of teaching a second language.
Qiao noted that the high demand in the sector resulted in several English-la上海419论坛
nguage platforms being founded almost every week last year. However, many subseq
uently closed because the teachers they employed did not meet the stringent quality standards.上海419论坛品茶微信
“The market has a way of weeding out companies that engage in malpractice. At the end of the
day, parents still prefer foreign teachers who can offer high-quality English tuition to their children.”
Guests moved through the verdant, clipped lawns of Mount St. Mary University Los
Angeles campus recently making their way to Amat House, where documentarian Chris D. Nebe’s new film, Yib 爱上海女神会所
in: Golden Gateway to the Yangtze River, showed them a side of China rarely seen by foreigners.
爱上海The film incorporates striking images of evocative ancient petroglyphs depict
ing hunters and horsemen chiseled into the cliffs by ancient artists of a bygone era; heavi
ly-laden mountain ponies toting vegetables to market through treacherous mountain passes; small fish 爱上海女神会所
ing vessels bobbing down the river as fishermen ply their trade; and many other more personal and cultural views of Yi
bin, a city in Southwest China’s Sichuan province depicted as a gateway to the mighty Yangtze River. 爱上海
The film showcases Yibin as the classic embodiment of the Chinese Dream, a vibrant
爱上海女神会所medley of ancient Chinese traditions and thriving modern industries.
As part of China’s historic Tea Horse Road, Yibin has been an important trading center for ov
er 2,200 years. In the past, it has been most famous for its tea, liquor, calligraphy, and bamboo. To
day, the city is also moved into manufacturing automobiles, high-tech mobile phones, and medical devices. 爱上海女神会所
“I didn’t choose Yibin, Yibin chose me, but it’s a really fascinating plac
e,” Nebe said, adding that his aim with this film was to paint a different picture of China. 爱上海
Nebe started his career as a film distributor in Germany before turning to documentary writing and directing. To date, he
爱上海女神会所has made over 20 documentaries, many done collaboratively with China.
The director feels that Western prejudices often prevent them from being open to understanding China.
“The West has too much fear and inherent racism,” he told Xinhua.

What would you say is people’s biggest misconception about space?
上海楼凤品茶微信It’s not a misconception, exactly, but a lot of people can’t come to terms with what it means to be human without considering the un

To spend time with stadium cosmologist Brian Cox is to make human beings reconsider their status – although tiny an
d fragile and finite in this infinite universe – as ecstatic and random rock stars of the galaxy上海千花网品茶微信
There was a remarkable moment when physics professor and TV personality Bri
an Cox was visiting the British Consulate in Hong Kong to deliver a prom上海千花网
otional speech to journalists there. Ten minutes ahead of his talk, the cosmologist who had spent half his life loo
上海千花网king for evidence of the origins of creation as far back as four billion years ago, looks u
p at the projection screen and says there was too much light shining on him that he couldn’t see.
Is there a blind that can be lowered, he asks? No. “Okay, I’ll do my best, but you’ll just have to come to the show to see these ima上海千花网品茶微信
ges,” he jokes, with his mix of wild-eyed, disciplined-mind, boy wonder-esque persona. Cox is referring to his “
stadium cosmology” performance, the Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour, wh上海千花网
ich landed in Hong Kong on June 5, and also visited Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.
上海千花网品茶微信In person, Cox burns like a comet, enlightening eyes and minds by the na
nosecond. He uses state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes and sp
ace probes in his show, with ultra-high-resolution LED technology helping explore the latest missions to planets, the na上海千花网
ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes, and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the unive
rse. He even “journeys” around and into a black hole. “On this new tour, I’m going a step further with technology,” he sa
上海千花网品茶微信ys. “And I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the universe.”
A former pop star of the 1980s and ’90s, Cox is today a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester.
He’s also an author, most recently of Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos (
with Jeff Forshaw), and a broadcaster, known for highly acclaimed BBC science p上海千花网品茶微信
