For the US, instead of b上海后花园 military muscles of Ta

iwan, the sales of arms send the wrong message to the secessionis

ts, encouraging them to go further on the road of seeking independence. As a res上海后花园女神会所

ult, the arms sales are anything but a move to stabilize the situation across the Taiwan Straits.

With the current trade frictions between the US and China, what is badly n上海后花园

eeded is more political trust between the two economic heavyweights. Arms sales to t

he island are not only incompatible with the spirit of the three joint communiqués Beijing and Washington signed for the esta

上海后花园女神会所blishment of diplomatic relations, but also set new stumbling blocks in the way of building mutual political trust.

More tension and worsening relations across the Taiwan Straits are not in the interests of the US. Its meddling in the internal af上海后花园

fairs of China in whatever form will only increase the possibility of the mainland resorting to whatever m

eans necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.上海后花园女神会所

The US should not hope to see and will not be able to do anything to prevent that scenario from becoming a reality.

上海后花园The best choice for the US is to stay away from Taiwan affairs.

Ouyang Ziyuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that China will launch a mission to Mars with M

artian satellite, Martian lander, as well as Martian rover. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:上海后花园女神会所

In his speech, Ouyang mentioned that one of the main purposes of the

probe is to determine if the planet is suitable for terraforming so humans can inhabit it.上海后花园

For some, his words may sound like science fiction. It remains a fact t

hat only about 400 people in the whole of human history have ever ventured into space. Of th

em, only 12 astronauts have left their steps on the moon, the nearest celestial body to our Earth.

No human has been to Mars yet. SpaceX has an ambitious plan to set up a human colony on the Red Planet, but NASA’s ex

isting plan to get humans to the planet seems to have been kiboshed by funding constraints.

China has now thrown its hat into the ring.

While it might be some time in the future, the good news is, once humankind inh

abits Mars and starts to terraform it, the planet’s potential can be fully exploited and its rich supply of resources can p

rovide ample support for human kind’s further development and exploration of the planet.

The violent acts instigated 上海千花网se who have an axe

overall interest of Hong Kong society and are merely exploiting the controversy over t上海千花网品茶微信

Now that the SAR government has called time on the amendment bill, it can turn its attention to the most important mat

上海千花网Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen and other secessionists on the island ma

y feel exhilarated about the US State Department on Monday approving the pot

ential sale to Taiwan of $2.2 billion in arms, considering the move to be a sign that they will be able to count on the U上海千花网品茶微信

nited States for help should there be a military confrontation with the Chinese mainland.

And for those in the US who consider Taiwan as a pawn the US can use上海千花网

in its competition with China, the sale of arms represents not only a profitable deal, but also

a hedge to maintain the status quo in which they can regard Taiwan as an independent entity.上海千花网品茶微信

Tsai and her followers should know that their exhilaration is nothing but whistling past the

graveyard. The more arms the island buys from the US, the less safe the island becomes as efforts to bu上海千花网

ild up the island’s military capabilities only serve to send a clear message of secessionism to the mainland.

Tsai and her followers should not underestimate the mainland’s resolve to defend the nation’s sovereignty and territ

orial integrity. The farther the island moves away from the possible peaceful reunion w

ith its motherland, the more resolute the mainland will become to take the island back by force.

By building up its military defense, Tsai is playing a game of brinkmanship.

tral Asian hanging silk br 上海会所xhibitionpair of Cen

A gilded silver wine rhyton in the form of an antelope’s head demonstrate

s the aesthetics of the Sasanian Empire (224-651), located in today’s Iran. A gilded bronze 上海会所

standing Buddha bearing strong Greek influences is believed to have originated in what is currently Kashmir.

 上海会所Six ewers from the period reflect the common influences shared acros

s the different cultures along the Silk Road, and one of them, a 50-centimeter-tall gold

ewer, represents a tasteful blend of their styles. It is believed to have been made by the Sogdian people for a c 上海会所

ustomer looking for a piece that combined Tang, Sasanian and Central Asian influences.

“When you put them side by side, you can see their shared cultural influen

 上海会所品茶微信ces, since they employ similar shapes and images,” Pritzker says. “Patterns similar to the on

es found on the ewers can be seen in some of the silk pieces on display. Some similar images can also be found in Cave 158.

“They are closely related, but this is the first time that they can be seen together,” he adds.

According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit 上海会所

y, the rising power of the Tubo regime in the latter half of the 9th century enabled it to build up a huge n

etwork of trade routes connecting it with the rest of China, South Asia and Central Asia. 上海会所品茶微信

“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an

d what was today’s Nepal, along with techniques in craftsmanship for making gold and silver art

 上海会所ifacts from Persia,” Huo explains. “It amassed a huge number of silk pieces through trade, despite the fact that Tubo pe

ople never learned how to make silk, probably due to the restrictions within their natural environment.

“We like to refer to it as the Silk Road on the Plateau,” he explains. “It was an indispensable part of the ancient Silk Road.” 上海会所品茶微信

Pritzker says: “Studies of Tibetan culture around the world have largely been influen

 上海会所品茶微信
ced by the dominance of Buddhism, and it tends to overshadow other aspects. Nowadays, we are starting to

understand the importance of the cultural exchanges that went beyond religion.”

The Tibetan Tubo regim上海乌托邦ate contemporary

Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro

ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦

According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event

上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo

rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.

“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦

During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l

上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.

Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes-with Ca

ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信

hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.

“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦

form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”

Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr

上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed

earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo

ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid

er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine-all made of gold-all de

monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.

Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p

ieces depicting celestial deities playing Chinese lutes remind visitors of the popularity of music at that ti

上海乌托邦me, while an arched plaque also tells people of the Tubo people’s admiration for the phoenix.

The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s

cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信

“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ

ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”

To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing

, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419

In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens

 上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o

fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.

A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信

To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo

cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e

 上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co

nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.

With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信

ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l

ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419

“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef

 上海419品茶微信ore the season for picking chongcao, we train the villagers and ask them to fill in the pits afte

r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa

ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.

“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419

much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.

As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信

g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.

To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem

ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.

“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives

tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信

sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.

After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub

sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak

es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat

erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.
