Domestic celebrities can enhance the viewing experience when they make ch

aracters in overseas animations sound local, but things can sometimes go wrong.上海419

At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.

Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with

上海419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.

Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an

imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an上海419

imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.

上海419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t

he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.

As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan上海419

g and actress Ma Li, who lend their voices to two of the major animal characters in the Mandarin version.

At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike

上海419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.

Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert上海419品茶微信

ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.

Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest上海419

ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.

For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati上海419品茶微信

on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.

上海419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand

arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.

“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig上海419品茶微信

inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.

But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro

versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.

conomy plowing ahead上海419ite strong headwindsChin

For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig

ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419

ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.

上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove

rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419

This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge

sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow

上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.

But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that

China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi

culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419

For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen

t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef

forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所

uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.

上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an

d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund

amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.

Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所

sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot

上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a

fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

Arms sales to Taiwan 上海419 blow tootening the poten

tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department

has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419

atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl

上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.

The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419

sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.

上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.

The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a

cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419

he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.

上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f

or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信

olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o

f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419

Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t

he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信

dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2

016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信

worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr

ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he

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

To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing

, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419

In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens

 上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o

fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.

A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信

To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo

cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e

 上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co

nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.

With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信

ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l

ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419

“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef

 上海419品茶微信ore the season for picking chongcao, we train the villagers and ask them to fill in the pits afte

r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa

ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.

“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419

much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.

As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信

g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.

To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem

ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.

“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives

tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信

sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.

After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub

sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak

es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat

erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.

Liangzhu Museum re上海419opens to public in Hangzhou

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.

It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所

after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of

上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.

The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.

The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419

ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad

上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”

Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419

After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.

上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led

by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419

Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje

上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信

New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.

Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien

t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.

More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o

f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.

The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult

ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s

ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.

In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.

Last year, China’s per-capita gross national income (GNI) hit $9,732, higher than that of middle income countries, according to a report released by the National Bureau of Statistics Monday.上海419

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Over the past seven decades, China’s national economy maintained rapid growth, with a tangible rise in its economic aggregate, the report said.

The report, which elaborates economic and social development achievement since the founding of New China 70 years ago, show

ed China’s GDP was 67.9 billion yuan in 1952, with per-capita GDP of 119 yuan. In 1978, C上海419品茶微信

hina’s GDP rose to 367.9 billion yuan, accounting for 1.8 percent of the global economy and ranking No 11 in the world.

Since the country began to implement reform and opening-up in 1978, China’s economy has maintained rapid growth. Its econo

mic aggregate surpassed 1 trillion yuan in 1986 and 10 trillion yuan in 2000, becoming the sixth-largest economy in the world上海419

. In 2010, China’s economic aggregate was 41.21 trillion yuan, overtaking Japan to become the second-largest economy.

上海419Over the past three years, China’s economic aggregate has topped 70 trillion yuan, 80 trillion yuan and 90 trillion yuan, respectively. Last year, Ch

ina’s economic aggregate reached 90.03 trillion yuan, accounting for nearly 16 percent of the global economy, while its

per-capita GNI reached $9,732, higher than the average level of middle income countries.上海419品茶微信

China’s financial strength has also improved greatly, with big increase in fore

ign reserves. In 1950, China’s fiscal revenue was only 6.2 billion yuan, and the figure rose to 113.2 billion yuan in 1978.上海419品茶微信

Since the country began its reform and opening-up, China has seen a surge in fiscal revenue. In 1999, China’s national fis

cal revenue exceeded 1 trillion yuan for the first time, and reached 11.72 trillion yuan in 2012, and 18.34 trillion yuan in 2

018. Between 1951 and 2018, China registered an average annual growth of 12.5 percent in fiscal revenue, providing st

rong capital guarantee to promote economic development and improve people’s livelihood.

Since the reform and opening-up, China’s foreign exchange reserves have show

ed stable growth. As of 1978, the figure stood at $167 million, ranked 38th in the world. By

the end of 2006, China’s foreign reserves surpassed $1 trillion and become the world’s largest. The figure w

as $3.07 trillion as of the end of last year, ranking at the top worldwide for 13 consecutive years.

Industrial structure continued optimization and upgrade over the past 70 yea

rs. At the early stage of the founding of the country, China’s agricultural production has weak bases, wit

h lower grain output. Since the reform and opening-up, the agricultural economy witnessed rapid development. In

2012, China’s total grain output rose to 612.23 million tons from 304.77 million tons in 1978, while the total output value of ag

riculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery increased to 8.63 trillion yuan from 139.7 billion yuan.
