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.

China plans to provide more public exercise facilities and further promote awareness of sport, a senior official said on Friday.上海乌托邦女神会所

Rapid urbanization and growing public enthusiasm for athletic events mean public sport facilities can no longer meet dem

The sports area per capita in China increased from 1.46 squa上海乌托邦

developed countries, with the figure in the United States at 16 sq m, and that in Japan 19 sq m.

上海乌托邦女神会所Lang said public access to sport stadiums and playgrounds at educational institutions w

上海乌托邦女神会所With a 4,000-year history in China, the peony is widely seen around the country. Boasting bright colors and an elegant app

Restoration gives classi上海乌托邦as a new lease on

Have you ever been bitten by the nostalgia bug and tried to look up your favorite childhood

TV dramas and watch them? Often it’s the case that you soon find the fuzzy images and the awkward co上海乌托邦

lor so unbearable that you drop the show after watching it for no more than three minutes.

上海乌托邦女神会所However, recently a special film viewing marathon was held by Youku, a video streaming site owned by Alibaba, at a cinema in B

eijing. The event featured nonstop episodes of a digitally-restored version of the 2006 hit TV dra

a Soldiers Sortie, and attracted a large crowd of diehard fans, many born after 1995.上海乌托邦

Although the intensive viewing was quite a test of physical strength, much to everyone’s s

urprise, the greatly-enhanced definition of the restored version stood the test of the big screen.

上海乌托邦女神会所With the advent of the Ultra HD era characterized by enhanced set-top boxes, ever-evolving virtual reality technologies, and

display devices nearly all with an aspect ratio of 16:9 – when many of the original classical TV and film pro

ductions made with the 4:3 aspect ratio – they now look like “running mosaics” on today’s much wider screens.上海乌托邦

To top it all, due to multiple transfers of the original video file over the ye

上海乌托邦女神会所ars, the edges of picture have become serrated. Plus, stored for decades, negatives of tho

se classic shows have all been subject to severe color shift that calls for correction.

he good news is that digital restoration of classical TV dramas spearhea上海乌托邦

ded by China’s top video streaming websites, like Youku and iQiyi, is now in full swing.

Protecting and restoring old films has always been under way, but previously the job was mainly funded by the gove

rnment. By the end of 2011, as much as 265 million yuan ($38.6 million) had been appropriated for digital restoration wo上海乌托邦女神会所

rk, giving a new shine to a total of 4,810 old films, said Luo Jianhui from Chi

na Netcasting Services Association at the 7th China Internet Audio-visual Conference held in May.

Because the Sino-US economic and trade frictions were triggered by t上海乌托邦女神会所

he US imposition of additional tariffs on Chinese goods, all those tariffs must be lift

ed if the two countries could reach an agreement, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday.

On the sidelines of the recently concluded G20 summit in Osaka, the heads of state of China and

the United States agreed to resume economic and trade consultations on the basis of equality and mu

tual respect and the United States said not to impose new tariffs on Chinese products.

Currently, negotiating teams of China and the United States

have kept communicating, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a news conference.

“It is China’s consistent position that Sino-US economic and trade frictions should ulti

mately be resolved through dialogue and consultation on an equal footing,” Gao said. “China welcomes the fact t

hat the United States will not impose new tariffs on Chinese products to avoid further escalation of economic and trade frictions.”

Stern, who is also co-chair of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, said G

20 nations can safeguard against one potentially important element in future financial crises by pri

oritizing wise investments in the transition to zero-carbon and climate-resilient growth and development, adding that an inadequate, slow or badly m

anaged transition could destabilize economies, slow or reverse growth, and severely damage the environment.

A report published by the World Bank early this year highlighted the huge need for infrastructu

re to eliminate poverty and raise living standards, with 940 million people living without electricity, 663

million lacking adequate sources of drinking water, 2.4 billion lacking decent sanitation facilities, 1 billion living more th

an 2 kilometers from an all-season road, and 4 billion people lacking internet access.

It found that the spending of developing countries on infrastructure w

as mostly in the range of 3.5 percent to 5 percent of GDP, and they should be able to build the infra

structure necessary to realize the SDGs through investment equivalent to about 4.5 percent of GDP.

Action plan to ta上海乌托邦女神会所thane emissions

hina’s top enviro上海乌托邦女神会所nmental watchdog has pledged to make a greater effort to control emissions of methane,

a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, by enhancing monitoring capability and drafting an action plan.

“To meet domestic and international needs for tackling climate cha

reenhouse gases,” Jiang Zhaoli, deputy head of the department of climate change at the Ministry of Ecology and En

vironment, said at a forum on Wednesday recognizing National Low Carbon Day.

Methane is over 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in warming the earth.

While conducting research on major sources of methane and reduction of emissions, the minist
