His music is based on the connection between his root

ots as an ethnic Puyuma and American blues.For American director and writer Kurt Paul MacCarley, the Chi

nese violin concerto Butterfly Lovers not only took him through a beautiful and sad love stor

y but has also inspired him to collaborate with Chinese musicians for his new movie Shanghai Cinderella.

“I cried in my heart. It was very emotional,” MacCarley said after watching the show on Friday.

“We are casting (for) the new movie. The music solo inspired me tonight to make this music collaboration.”

The concerto, performed by renowned Chinese violinist Lyu Siqing, illustrates the folktale of

the star-crossed lovers Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, known as the “Chinese Romeo and Juliet”.

He left the music scene in the 1980s to help found non-profit organizations to protect the rig

hts of Taiwan aborigines. When he returned to the music scene with a single, entitled In a Flash, in 2005, the

singer-songwriter won both the Best Lyricist and Best Song of the Year Golden Melody Awards a year later.

angmen platform, a provider of online tutorials, asses

Online courses have increased public access to q上海后花园女神会所uality educational resources, b

ut unlike traditional classrooms, the teachers cannot directly monitor and interact with the

ir students when teaching online, which can lead to disengaged students and poor feedback.

To resolve these issues, three students from Tsinghua and the University of Tsukuba in Japan

have created an AI-based model that can be integrated into online teaching platforms to analyze f

acial expressions and “bullet screens”, real-time viewers’ comments on the screen.

The model then crunches the data and creates a line graph that tells the teacher exactly when and what p

arts of the lesson students find most interesting or difficult. The project won third prize at th

e 2018 International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing hosted by Tsinghua.

“This empowers teachers to gain objective, timely and multifaceted insights into

their students’ state of learning, which can be used to assess and improve their lessons,” said Qie Nan, an ind

ustrial engineering doctoral candidate at Tsinghua and one of the people behind the project.

China’s Qomolangma climbing season runs from April 10 t

At least four deaths have been blamed on crowding during the climbs, Agence France-Presse reported.

People should be well prepared to handle Qomolangma’s traffic jams which are common phenomena along climbing paths, said alpinists who had reached the summit.

“Although the news about the jam on Qomolangma this year has gone viral, people should understand that it happens every year during the brief cl

imbing window. Knowing what to do when climbers jam the narrow paths should be incl

uded in their training well in advance,” said Ma Liyamu, who reached the top of Qomolangma, the world’s ta

llest mountain at 8,848 meters, on May 22 and was also held up by the crowds on her descent.

She is the leader of a mountaineering team of three Chinese women w

ho scaled Qomolangma. They launched their expedition from Nepal, which issued 381 cli

mbing permits for the season that concludes this week. Nepal’s permits this season cost $11,000 each.

Chinese couples should get one thing right: the educa

As the world’s second-largest movie market with a grow

th rate of more than 9 percent three years in a row, the Chinese film market is extreme

ly open and inclusive with outstanding movies from around the world, fine works of Hollyw

ood in particular, being screened in China even before they are shown in other countries.

This shows China’s decision to open up its film market in the trough in 1995 was absolutely right. Since then the quota for Hollywo

od movies has been significantly raised from the initial 10 films a year. The opening up of the Chinese movie ma

rket proves that the more open and inclusive a film market is, the higher the number of good films it will generate o

wing to the active and beneficial exchanges with the world’s most advanced filmmaking countries.

The remarkable performance of about a dozen Chinese movies in recent

years makes it clear that well-made films that showcase Chinese culture and touch Chin

ese people’s hearts could not only become smash hits but also help spread Chinese culture. Which g

 adamantly safeguard the contemporary international order that was foun

ded by the UN and that brought about more than 70 years of general peace and rapid de

velopment after World War II. We must oppose a Cold War mentality and competitive rivalry, which go against the ti

Third, we should be disseminators of Chinese civilization. Many pundits in the contemporary world think that China’s trad

pursuits are deposited in its culture. China’s development path is rooted in its civilization and traditions.

Sourabh Gupta, resident senior fellow at the Washingto

ton-based Institute for China-American Studies, specifically praised the new Foreign Investm

ent Law-passed in March by China’s national legislature and effective in 2020-which he said is “a far

sighted piece of legislation” that “will firmly usher in a new round of reform and opening-up”.

“Strong measures to deal with political, regulatory and administrative noncompliance are envisaged. A robust wor

king mechanism to promptly address foreign businesses’ complaints is also envisaged,” said Gupta, who believes the p

rovisions are a big step in assuring foreign businesses that the playing field is leveled in China.

“It is the predictability, transparency and nondiscrimination bent of the law which, in my view, will lead to a significant inw

ard flow of foreign capital in key services and advanced manufacturing sectors,” he said.
