It is no surprise that, as a Beijing native who grew up in

n a crowded courtyard house in a traditional alleyway like Lao She, Fang also felt a deep connection to the writer’s works.

上海龙凤1314女神会所As Fang says, he enjoys reading Lao She’s works because the characters appear as familiar as his neighbors.

After performing This Life of Mine in 2011, Fang began to plan other adaptations of Lao She’s works.

With the support of Lao She’s children, including Shu Yi and Lao She’s daughter Shu Ji, Fa上海龙凤1314

ng adapted two more of the writer’s well-known novels, Divorce and Cat Country, for the stage between 2012 and 2014.

In 2016, he adapted Lao She’s novel, Mr Ma and Son, into an all-male cast stage production of the same title, which largely draws on Lao She’s experience as a Ma上海龙凤1314

ndarin teacher at the University of London from 1924 to 1929. Last year, he directed another all-male cast play titled Lao She’s Six Stories, based on six short sto

ries penned by the writer between 1934 and 1935, which deal with the struggles and lives of ordinary people, dep上海龙凤1314女神会所

icting the plight of a young couple living a hand-to-mouth existence and the relationships between local neighbors.

Fang is working on his latest play, The Story of Niu Tianci, which was written by Lao She in 1934.

“Compared with Lao She’s other works, The Story of Niu Tianci is less well-known. But Shu Ji likes it very much and it’s a pit

y to ignore such a great novel,” he says. “The story is about a young man’s struggle against his social environment, a

上海龙凤1314nd I am sure that audiences will find the story interesting and connect with it. I am very excited about it.”

Schools must provide more opportunities for students exp

A futuristic vibe permeates the entire campus. One can witness Xi

AI has also been integrated into 36 classes, from classical Chinese literature to biology. Li said the classes are meant to s

toke the students’ curiosity and familiarize them with AI technologies and equipment.

The school also provides intermediate classes on programming languages and web

Song Yan, director of the school’s information center, said there a

“We want our students and teachers to have ample time to freely explore and innovate with AI,” he said.

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures

“Moreover, as foreign investors’ trading helps boost liquidity in the domestic market and makes the price changes mor

e consistent with international trends, domestic market participants can also better hedge against risks,” he said.

Experts also expect China to open up the stock index futures mark

et to foreign investors, as they have large exposure in t

he A-share market and are therefore in need of this risk management tool.

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures is an “infrastructure” for fin

ancial market opening-up, without which foreign investors’ passion for Chinese shares may be dampened, said Wa

ng Maobin, investment department chair at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

As for global GDP, manufacturing employment and

e US tariff hikes therefore will increase the economic pain of the US and world economies.

Agricultural products, chemicals and chemical products, textiles and g

arments are the main US items targeted by China’s higher tariffs. But despite the higher tar

iffs providing some protection for domestic industries, Chinese consumers might have to pay more to purchase them.

In the first four months of this year, the volume of Sino-US trade dropped by 15.7 percent to $161.23 billion. In terms of product

structure, US exports of raw materials and foods to China saw the biggest decline, among which the export of so

ybeans plummeted by half in March compared with the same period last year. And US exports of plant products, mi

nerals, jewelry and precious metals declined by more than 85 percent in the first quarter.

Nor would it adopt a double standard and criticize China’s efforts to counter terrorism and extremism. Last year, tourists fr

om home and abroad paid more than 150 million trips to Xinjiang, thanks to the improved security situation in

the region. That Xinjiang has not witnessed any violent or terrorist incidents in recent years proves the effect

iveness of the joint efforts of the government and local people in maintaining regional peace and stability.

Xinjiang is undoubtedly in its best development stage in histo

Learning to work together in an orderly, high trust lev

, and supported by diverse interest groups will prevent conflicts among stakeholders in the South China Sea,” Santarita said.

China is in the midst of implementing a host of reforms, which are focused on opening up its economy to foreign compet

ition and strengthening its private sector. They are needed to upgrade its industries and avoid the dreaded middle-income trap.

Many of these reforms are exactly what the United States is asking for in the trade negotiation

s, but China is actually pursuing these reforms primarily to achieve its own long-term internal economic goals.

He said Asia’s emphasis on “respect for authority, respect for the environm

ent and the discipline to control the use of resources” will also see Asian leaders purs

uing a more eco-friendly development path and honor their commitments to the Paris climate agreement.

“If there is harmony, discipline, stability and the primacy of family and com

munity over the individual, then any problem can be easily addressed,” Santarita said.

While educational evaluation has an important role of

The MOE will therefore continue to regulate such acti

The China Earthquake Administration pledged to enhance its earthquake detection c

More nurses sought to treat elderly population

Health authorities will redouble their efforts to train nurses in eldercare as the

proportion of older people in the popula

tion expands and tens of millions of

people struggle with disabilities, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

Jiao Yahui, deputy chief of medical administration and supervision at the Nation

al Health Commission, said there are not

enough nurses to cope with the growing needs of the country’s elderly.

A regulation on the training of healthcare workers and standards of service is being drafted.

It is expected to boost the number of nurse’s aides, Jiao said ahead of

International Nurses Day on Sunday.

The nurse’s aides will complement the work of full-fledged nurses to meet the demand for services for the elderly, she said.

The report was based on a survey conducted by Vision Overseas Consulting Co, a subsidiary of New Oriental Education and Technolo
