of the role played by jade in 5,000 years of Chinese culture, Wang Kaihao reports.

In 1748, the 37-year-old Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) wrote an ode extolling the exquisite beauty of a

上海后花园品茶微信fan-shaped jade artifact he owned, huang, after it was presented to him at the royal palace, the Forbidden City.

In his poem, the emperor attributed the antique to the Han Dynasty (

206 BC-AD 220), but its exact age remained a mystery to him. In the following decades, many上海后花园

similar jade pieces were presented to him, and the emperor was so fond of holding them that they developed their own

上海后花园品茶微信unique patina. He even added gold and enamel to the pieces for embellishment.

Nevertheless, the question of age kept bothering him. In 1778, he wro

te another poem suggesting that these “Han objects” might belong to an earlier time.上海后花园

But, as we know today, these objects are far older than the emperor could have realized.

上海后花园品茶微信The Qing ruler may not have been able to imagine that he was having a dialogue with an object dating back 5,000 years. How

ever, modern-day visitors to the Forbidden City in Beijing, which is also known

as the Palace Museum, can experience a panoramic view of the brillia上海后花园

Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

haoyang Theatre amazes 上海后花园es with aerial acrobatics

Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for el

ectrifying and awe-inspiring Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海后花园

Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a

上海后花园venue for dance dramas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.

After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perman

Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, includ

上海后花园品茶微信Many renowned acrobatics troupes have graced the stage at the theater, among them Deyang Acrobatic Troupe from Sou

The show celebrates the ancient worship of the sun and birds by the people of Sichuan tho

The storytelling mixes flips, falls, dance and high-wire spectacle with the latest in high-tech sound and lighting, to whisk the

“I cried in my heart. It was very emotional,” MacCarley said after watching the show on Friday.

“We are casting (for) the new movie. The music solo inspired me tonight to make this music collaboration.”

The concerto, performed by renowned Chinese violinist Lyu Siqing, illustrates the folktale of

the star-crossed lovers Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, known as the “Chinese Romeo and Juliet”.

He left the music scene in the 1980s to help found non-profit organizations to protect the rig

As a leading developing country, China has notably closed the gap with developed countries in terms of people’s life

expectancy and health. In fact, by 2015, Chinese people’s average life expectancy at birth had increased to 76.34 years.

Compared with the mortality rate, however, the changes in China’s fertility rate have been astoundingly rapid. China became a low fertility country toward the end

People should be well prepared to handle Qomolangma’s traffic jams which are common phenomena along climbing paths, said alpinists who had reached the summit.

“Although the news about the jam on Qomolangma this year has gone viral, people should understand that it happens every year during the brief cl
