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.

That may soon become a reality as a Guangzhou-based company has announced it is

上海夜网品茶微信cooperating with the local government to build a low-altitude aviation transportation network for AAVs.

Generally used to transport goods, “the network will shuttle passengers in a safe, fast, environmentally friendly, cost-efficien

The company, in cooperation with the Guangzhou government, will open the service to the public in 2021.

上海夜网品茶微信”We will launch pilot routes above the city roads this year,” Hu said. According to Hu, th

e company has finished the development of an application to allow passengers to pre-order the flying service.

“Passengers are allowed to pick up the drones at a designated上海夜网

station downtown, with charges being almost the same as taking a taxi,” Hu said.

Ehang, based in Guangzhou, has selected the city as its pilo

A novel way: Booksto上海千花坊re high in the clouds

hile it’s commonplace for Chinese square dancing to be accompanied by loud music, one group of older dancers in N上海千花坊

anning has decided to turn off the loudspeakers without turning down their fun.

Tired of noise complaints, the Nanning Dream Team ditched the speakers and added individual headsets to make sure they上海千花坊品茶微信

can still enjoy dancing in the community, but in what to neighbors must be a more civilized way.

In a city square in Nanning, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, nearly 100 seniors concentrated on

following the moves of their dance leader while wearing headsets to listen to the music.上海千花坊

Many passersby did a double take when they saw the dance team go through a rout

上海千花坊品茶微信ine, seemingly without any audible music blaring from loudspeakers.

When asked why they dance in this way, they said they had no other choice

.– The area where they dance is between two close residential buildings, so noise e

choed and disturbed nearby residents. Surrounding merchants and residents used to complain about the noise they m上海千花坊

ade. Some even splashed water or threw items from the upstairs floors of buildings close by.

The team leader, surnamed Yang, said the dancers didn’t want to annoy上海千花坊品茶微信

the neighbors, and that’s why she suggested the group dance with headsets.

This perfect solution has ended complaints, simply via a small tran上海千花坊

smitter which can set channels and transmit the signals, creating the music all the dancers listen to simultaneously.

“I bought the device at my own expense, while our dancers pay for their own head上海千花坊品茶微信

sets,” Yang said. “Dancers can adjust the volume of their wireless headset and select stereo mode, which is ve

ry beneficial for us to enjoy dancing and not disturb others anymore. What a win-win solution!”

The latest Chinese edit上海乌托邦 book, RN: The Memo

irs of Richard Nixon, was published in May this year to mark the 40th anniversary of th

e normalization of China-US ties. Different translated versions were also published in 1979 and 2001.上海乌托邦

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree

上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.

In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦

nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.

“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers

上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in

ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com

munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦

According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi

bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.

Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h

上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”

The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w

ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦

“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w

orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l

ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C

hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信

g. He also hinted that China would welcome a high-ranking US official as head of the delegation.
