Living the life of Bri上海千花网e a defining science

To spend time with stadium cosmologist Brian Cox is to make human beings reconsider their status – although tiny an

d fragile and finite in this infinite universe – as ecstatic and random rock stars of the galaxy上海千花网品茶微信

There was a remarkable moment when physics professor and TV personality Bri

an Cox was visiting the British Consulate in Hong Kong to deliver a prom上海千花网

otional speech to journalists there. Ten minutes ahead of his talk, the cosmologist who had spent half his life loo

上海千花网king for evidence of the origins of creation as far back as four billion years ago, looks u

p at the projection screen and says there was too much light shining on him that he couldn’t see.

Is there a blind that can be lowered, he asks? No. “Okay, I’ll do my best, but you’ll just have to come to the show to see these ima上海千花网品茶微信

ges,” he jokes, with his mix of wild-eyed, disciplined-mind, boy wonder-esque persona. Cox is referring to his “

stadium cosmology” performance, the Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour, wh上海千花网

ich landed in Hong Kong on June 5, and also visited Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.

上海千花网品茶微信In person, Cox burns like a comet, enlightening eyes and minds by the na

nosecond. He uses state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes and sp

ace probes in his show, with ultra-high-resolution LED technology helping explore the latest missions to planets, the na上海千花网

ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes, and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the unive

rse. He even “journeys” around and into a black hole. “On this new tour, I’m going a step further with technology,” he sa

上海千花网品茶微信ys. “And I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the universe.”

A former pop star of the 1980s and ’90s, Cox is today a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester.

He’s also an author, most recently of Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos (

with Jeff Forshaw), and a broadcaster, known for highly acclaimed BBC science p上海千花网品茶微信

rograms. Cox combines the best of David Attenborough, Carl Sagan and millen

nial thinking in his makeup. In an exclusive chat, we got to know the 51-year-old boy wonder of physics.

unqu Opera play Six Cha上海千花网ating Life is brou

Yun from Shen Fu’s autobiography Six Chapters of a Floating Life, was recently brought to life in a Kunqu Opera.

One of the loveliest women in Chinese literature, Yun in Shen Fu’s autobiography Six C上海千花网

hapters of a Floating Life, recently had her life story told in a Kunqu Opera play by Shanghai Grand Theatre.

上海千花网女神会所The first production of SGT, Six Chapters of a Floating Life was premiered in the theater on July 13. A major project sup

ported by the Shanghai Cultural Development Foundation, the play is the first production solely by SGT.

In May when the production was announced and box-上海千花网

office sales kicked off, the tickets sold out for the premiere night within 28 hours.

The Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News praised the play to be “a highly aesthetic new Kun

上海千花网女神会所qu Opera production, deeply rooted in the tradition, without losing relevance to the contemporary view of beauty”.

Encouraged by the success of the premiere, SGT has decided to present a second round of performances over Nov 22-24.

“We hope to add the play to our repertoire so that it can go on to be sta上海千花网

ged for many years to come,” says Zhang Xiaoding, the general manager of SGT.

Shen Fu (1763-1825) recounted his life in Suzhou with his wife, Ch上海千花网女神会所

en Yun, in the autobiographical book Six Chapters of a Floating Life.

上海千花网In the book he recalled the happiness of ordinary family life, the cas

ual discussions with his wife about literature and art, the experience of traveling tog

ether and of enduring hardships and poverty, until losing his wife to illness away from home.上海千花网女神会所

The book has been popular in China since the late 19th century, and loved for its vivid writing and the deep emotions.

Six Chapters of a Floating Life has been translated into many languages.

“We are heading in the right direction,” Wu said, adding that the efforts should be expan

“The idea is to tap these resources, under the right conditions, for the people to enjoy at any time and in any place.”

上海千花网When asked in front of foreign visitors what it takes to sustain the love for his jo

b after three decades, mural restorer Yang Tao said it is all about having “peace of mind”.

“You need to be in a state of tranquility, to guide a stable hand to mend the lines and reconnect the dots,” said Ya上海千花网女神会所

ng, 52, who works at the Mogao Caves near the major Silk Road hub of Dunhuang, Gansu province.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some of the best examples in the wo

Foreign teacher arreste上海千花网olestation charge

A male foreign teacher suspected of molesting a young girl in a kindergarten in January in

上海千花网品茶微信Qingdao, Shandong province has been arrested, according to the local procuratorate.

The district procuratorate of Shinan in Qingdao approved the arrest of the teacher after the local上海千花网

public security department conducted an investigation, according to a report from CCTV on Friday.

上海千花网品茶微信Monitoring video showed the teacher entering a classroom and putting his hands into the girl’s quilt during naptime for a

bout one minute as the Chinese caretaker left for the bathroom at 2 pm on Jan 25, according to an an

上海千花网nouncement by the Beijing RYB Qingdao Vanke City Kindergarten on Thursday.

The kindergarten only gave the foreign teacher’s first name — Daniel, from the Republic of Columbia, born in 1984. Police deta

ined Daniel on Jan 29, immediately after the kindergarten and上海千花网品茶微信 the girl’s parents reported the case.

The announcement said the girl was found to have no injury after

a comprehensive medical check and returned to regular school attendance.

A 2015 report by Brookin上海千花网olars Stuart Butler an

 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

aid “there remains a stark, persistent, white-black racial divide” from the rate of poverty to the level of education.

上海千花网Rice can also compare notes with her current colleagues, such as Derek

Hyra, an associate professor at the American University, where Rice is now a disting上海千花网女神会所

uished visiting research fellow in its School of International Service. I cherish my chat with Hyra on the racial issue two y

上海千花网ears ago in Washington and learned a lot from his book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Rice may call me biased if I share my observations on the racial issue after living and working in

Washington for five years. But fellow journalists have covered extensively the racial segregation in Washington.上海千花网女神会所

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

roblems rather than distracting public attention by making a fuss over Zhao’s tweet.

vernment to take supportive measures when necessary to ensure healthy growth.

上海千花网In addition to boosting exports, the government is taking steps to foster new growth engines.

“Traditional trade may be hurt by the tough external environment, and therefor
