During an excavatio上海千花网 wooden slip was une

earthed from a well at a 2,200-year-old relic site in the mountainous

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所

rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.

The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d

上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.

The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on

e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所

It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be

cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy

上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn

asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.

After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

ow sharing some of their findings about the Qin era with a display of some 175 slips at A Tale of A S

mall Town, an exhibition at the National Museum of China in Beijing that runs through Sept 6.上海千花网

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

n Slips Museum near the relic site. Bamboo and wooden slips were the primary上海千花网女神会所

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).

Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网

8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep

itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所

own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.

Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

g that of the discovery of Qin’s Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in 1974.

上海千花网女神会所Mulan represents a household name in China, but the character fir

st gained fame worldwide in 1998 thanks to the eponymous Disney animated movie.

Disney is an undeniable master of adaptations, exploring good stories and transformin上海千花网

g them into global legends. However, like Disney’s other adaptations, Mulan has also raised some doubts.

上海千花网女神会所First of all, Mulan in the Disney version appears as a self-independent

woman who tries to break free of China’s ancient feudal shackles and meet her true self.

“It is my duty to fight,” Mulan said at the end of the trailer. But the saying, much discussed online, comes after an old na上海千花网女神会所

nny told Mulan: “Quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined — these are the qualities we see in a good wife.”

Many believed that the word “fight” here has double meanings. Mulan’s ambition goes beyond being a sword-wielding he

上海千花网roine, where she could also slash away the stereotypes of ancient Chinese women.

In the minds of most Chinese audiences, however, family bonds and patriotism should reign in Mulan’s story.

After all, the entire society paid great respect to the thoughts of Confucius and Mencius in anci上海千花网

ent times. Therefore, Mulan is not really pursuing freedom, but rather firmly following their core ideas of “Ke Ji Fu

上海千花网女神会所Li,” which means that a person should restrain their words and deeds in order to comply with social norms.

Also, the topic Mulan Fujian Tulou has trended as a hot hashtag on Chinese social medi

a. Tulou represents a Chinese architectural style known for inward-looking circular and square layouts un上海千花网女神会所

Apple CEO Cook attacked Qualcomm: We haven’t had any

35Early on Jan. 9, Beijing Time, Apple CEO Tim Cook attacked Qualcomm in an interview with CNBC on Tuesd、

ay, suggesting that it is almost impossible for the two companies to reach a settlement amid ongoing legal disputes.

“The problem between us and Qualcomm is that their policies are not licensed. We think it’s illegal.” Second, they have an obligation to provide a patent portfolio on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis. But they didn’t. They charged too much.

stioned the marketing strategy adopted by Qualcomm. The New York Times reported last November that Qualcomm hired Definers Public Affairs to write and disseminate false information about Apple in order to confuse media coverage.

“Companies should not pay people to write false news and publicize it,” Cook said. Things shouldn’t work that way.”

Qualcomm and its CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, have repeatedly said that the company wants an out-of-court settlement with Apple. But news from Apple seems to deny that possibility.

“We haven’t had any reconciliation with them since the third quarter of last year,” Cook said Tuesday. So I’m not sure where that idea came from.

Cook also responded to Apple’s critics Tuesday by saying that Apple’s ecosystem has never been so powerful.
