Experts from Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital in Central China’s Hubei province
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛have travelled thousands of kilometers across the nation to conduct examinations on chi
ldren with congenital heart diseases and carry out surgeries free of charge, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported.
Ever since the hospital was founded in 1999, the team of medical experts led by Tao L
iang, head of the hospital’s cardiothoracic surgery department, has paid visits to a number of poverty-str乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
icken regions, old revolutionary base areas and remote mountainous areas. In the past eight years, they have visited T
ibet autonomous region five times, bringing professional medical assistance to local residents.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛Phuntsok Yangdron, a 16-year-old Tibetan girl, received help from experts at Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital seven years ago.
In 2012, she was diagnosed with leakage in her left atrium and right heart cro

The two met again this year when the hospital’s expert team revisited Yangdron’s hometown in Naidong county, Shannan, Tibet autonomous
region. The teenage girl was excited to see Tao, she said. “I still remember how frightened I was when I went to Wuhan. I w
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所as 9 years old, alone and far away from home, and was about to receive my first ever heart surgery.”
But Yangdron was lucky. “The doctors at the hospital were very kind to me,” she said. “They comforted m
e, took care of me. They gave me the courage to do the surgery without too many worries.”
After undergoing the minimally invasive surgery, Yangdron recovered quickly and the operation was a total success.

Yongyuan park will focus on the development of intangible cultural heritage. It was set up to
allow inheritors to work with designers and find ways to blend the traditional arts more seamlessly into public life.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信So far, many inheritors are confined to limited development space, says Li.
The cultural product concept falls behind the times and is separated from modern design and sales, he adds.
“We need to bring together good designers and intangible culture inheritors for product innovation,” Li says.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信

Planned deal worth around $2.2 billion seriously violates international law China said on Friday it will place sanctions on US companies involved in the lates乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
t planned military sale to Taiwan, which it said has impaired its sovereignty and national security.
The planned sale worth an estimated $2.2 billion seriously violates international law and b乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛
asic norms of international relations, as well as the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three Chi
na-US joint communiques, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a statement.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所China made the sanctions decision in order to safeguard its national interests, Geng said.
In a news conference in Beijing, Geng again urged the United States to call off the sale and cut military ties with Taiwan.
The US announced its State Department has approved the sale, the largest since US President Donald Trump took office in Jan乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
uary 2017. The announcement came just days before the arrival of Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to the US.
Tsai arrived in the US on Thursday, Reuters reported, and is spending four nights in th乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China is “gravely concerned” by Tsa乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
i’s transiting the US, and is firmly against any form of official contact between the US and Taiwan.
“Taiwan independence” separatist activities are doomed to fail, and no foreign
intervention is allowed in the Taiwan question, which is purely China’s domestic affair, Wang said in a joint ne
ws conference in Budapest with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Friday.
“No one and no force is able to obstruct the historical process of unifica
tion of the two sides across the Taiwan Straits,” Wang said, urging the US to honor its on
e-China promise and the stipulations of the three China-US joint communiques.
Since the pilot park was established in 2016, the Chinese government
has invested 2.25 billion yuan ($330 million) for
infrastructure construction there, suc乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛 h as monitoring facilities, community education and construction of big data centers, according to official statistics.
In 2015, Yushu’s Zadoi county gover

n Namsei village, which carries out a series of activities r anging from wildlife monitoring to community training and nature watch projects.
“The station’s monitoring work mainly focuses on snow leopards. If the number of snow leopar乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所

ble, it means the quality of the pastures and environment here is good,” said Liu Xinnong, a stu dent from Peking University who currently works as a volunteer at the station.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
“Monitoring efforts in recent years have contributed to the lack of data on wildlife in th
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛e region,” she noted. It is estimated that there are around 40 snow leopards in Namsei.
Conservation prioritized to economic development A major exhibition examining the pivotal role played by the Tibetan Tubo regime in the S乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛
ilk Road era is breaking new ground, Wang Kaihao reports in Dunhuang.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所When you mention the ancient Silk Road to most people, they usually think of the Eurasian trade routes spreading from Chang’an, today’
s Xi’an and the capital of Shaanxi province, toward Central Asia out through the deserts of Northwest China.
Dunhuang, Gansu province, served as a pivotal crossroads on this networ乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
k of routes for over a millennium. It’s also an ideal place to gain an insight into the pros
perity that those trade routes brought when you visit the nearby Mogao Grottoes. This complex of hundreds of cav乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛
es features a host of exquisite statues and murals in a mix of artistic styles from a diverse range of civilizations.
A major new exhibition of cultural relics held in Dunhuang will remind visitors that the Silk Road extended t乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
o a much wider area than first believed, covering the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and all the way up to the Himalayas.
This is the story being told through the 120 or so artifacts on loan from 30 instituti乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛
ons and collectors worldwide at Cultural Exchange Along the Silk Road: Masterpieces of the Tubo Period (7th-9th C
entury), a show currently being held at the Dunhuang Caves exhibition hall at the foot of the Mogao Grottoes.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛女神会所
“Yushu is located at the source of China’s three great rivers. Both the provincial governmen
t and the prefecture government understand (our ecological responsibility) and emphasize pr
otection. We all have this consensus,” said Tobgyal, director of Yushu’s ecological environment bureau.
The area has prioritized environmental conservation before economic deve
lopment, also part of the local government’s commitment to ensure water qu
ality in the upstream region of China’s three major rivers, which influences 20 provincial areas across China.
This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are pr
oud that we are part of it as The Face.” Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium.
At the packed venue, the then 25-year乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛 -old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s
godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first
rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛
l possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo
rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信
In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget
her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from
the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.
“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young
bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m
usic styles. They come together and contribute t乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”
Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui
founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band
s emerged in the country while developing the乐动体育,乐动体育登录419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band
Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.
