anghai International Film and TV Festival and the audiovisual communication research ce

own a hundredfold, surging from several hundred thousand yuan in 2015 to tens of millions of yuan in 2018.

“We hope to see the quality of films continue to improve as more budget is alloca

It is one of the oldest festivals, not only in China but also thro

roughout the world, with a history of more than 2,000 years. In 2006, the traditional festival was listed

as part of China’s national intangible cultural heritage. In 2008, it was recognized as a public holiday in the Chinese mainland.

The Dragon Boat Festival commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chu state official and poet who lived during the Warring State

s Period (475-221 BC) before the reunification of China under the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). He was exiled after

opposing his king’s decision to ally with the neighboring state of Qin, and when Chu was finally conquered by Qin, h

e committed suicide by drowning in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.

The Chu people, who admired Qu Yuan for his loyalty and integrity, threw rice dumplings into the river to feed the fish so t

hey would not eat the body of their poet hero. People then started dragon boat racing to scare off the fish.

Since then, the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calen

dar is celebrated as the Dragon Boat Festival. The following are some customs for the festival.

In 1972, David Bowie gave birth to arguably his most famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust-an androgynous alien with spiky tangerine h

air, theatrical makeup and brightly-colored glam rock attire. An eponymous ode to the character appears on

Bowie’s album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, which was released that year.

With the album, Bowie redefined glam rock and spent 18 months in the

years 1972 and 1973 touring the United Kingdom, North America and Japan.

During the tour, Bowie invited a Cambridge University graduate, M

ick Rock, to be his personal photographer. They first met backstage in March 1972.

s have seen Modi front-loading India’s unique religious, cultural and civilizational links with neighboring countries.

This pragmatic approach has not just made the Sino-Indian summits most frequent but hopefully also more produ

ctive. Modi has not had as many one-on-one meetings with any other global leader. And since this trend is like

ly to continue, it could see them jointly responding to the White House’s blitzkrieg against friends and foes alike.

The fact that Russia still faces serious economic challenges and the US has slipped into confrontations with some coun

tries will provide further traction for Modi and Xi to play larger roles in setting the tone and tenor of multilateral debate

s and initiatives. Their synergy in tackling regional and global issues will continue to have positive effects on bila

teral equations, which remain an essential prerequisite for the two countries’ peaceful rise.

A great debate set over tariffs, technologyhorwom

Two television anchorwomen — one from China and one from the US — will debate

two sides of the long-running trade dispute between the two countries.

ssues such as tariffs and technology

The discourse will take place via satellite, as Liu will be in CGTN’s studio in Beijing, while Regan will be at Fox’s studio in New York.

The debate idea came about after the two newswomen clashed earlier this month after Regan said Beijing stole “$600 bill

on worth of intellectual property a year”, leading to the Trump administration tariffs.

ization, and the issue of occupational diseases, which has been accumu

lating over the decades of extensive growth, is gradually starting to show,” Li said.

A key task of the campaign is to complete a survey of the threat of dust pois

oning, covering industries including mining, metallurgy and building materials by the end

of 2020, and to hold companies accountable for preventing the hazard, a commission document said.

The campaign also aims to have employers who generate large amounts of dust suspend their businesses and over

haul working conditions, and will ask local authorities to shut down those that cannot improve.

The campaign aims for more rigorous inspections of high-dust employers and to punish those who violate laws and regula

tions. It will also urge employers to sign contracts with their employees and join occupational injury insurance.

ns in February for the clinical application of new biomedical technologies, stipulating that clini

cal research that involves human trials, including gene editing, stem cells, organ transplants be

Under the draft, which is yet to be adopted, violators may face punishments including fines, revocation of business permits or criminal charges.

He underlined the importance of properly mitigating

various social conflicts, and said efforts must be made to address legitimate and lawful concerns to safeguard public int

erests, and also guide the public in voicing their concerns in a law-based manner to maintain social order.

Strong pressure must be maintained to crack down on crimes such as organized gang activity, violent and terroristic cri

mes, as well as those related to fraud, robbery, food and drug safety, and environmental protection, Xi said.

Calling social fairness and justice a lifeline for judicial and law enforcement work, Xi called for improving the mec

hanism of the use of power in law enforcement as well as the supervision over such powers.

Efforts should be made to help the public feel fairness and justice in every case, Xi said.

He also urged public security staff to improve their work so that human rights can be guarant

eed while crime is fought, and fairness can be ensured while efficiency of law enforcement is pursued.
