His strong interest in zoology is often overshadowed by the stereotypical image of him as a fervent collector of jewels and antiques.
From 1750 to 1761, the emperor ordered two court artists, Yu Sheng and Zhang Weibang, to create paintings of birds and terres亚博体育yb夜网
trial animals, while eight high officials with the requisite knowledge were arranged to write explanatory texts for t
he encyclopedic albums, known as?Niao Pu?(“graphics of birds“) and?Shou Pu?(“graphics of beasts”).亚博体育yb夜网女神会所
He also collected a comprehensive book called?Hai Cuo Tu?(“an album of the abundant marine world”), which was illus

亚博体育yb夜网”Western painting techniques were introduced into the royal court of the Qing
Dynasty through missionaries,” says Li Shi, a researcher of ancient painting at the Palace Museum.
In Niao Pu, we can see that the expressive techniques of traditional Chinese ink-water pain亚博体育yb夜网
ting are kept,” she says, adding, “but there are also paintings in the album which show that typical tech
亚博体育yb夜网女神会所niques from Western paintings were applied to deal with shadows and add realistic detail.”
Qianlong loved the three encyclopedias and kept them in his residence for frequent reference and the education of his children.

亚博体育yb夜生活女神会所A guideline on supporting the innovation of institutions and mechanisms for talent devel
opment in southern China’s Hainan province has been released by Chinese authorities.
Jointly issued by the Organization Department of the Communist Par
ty of China Central Committee, the National Development and Reform Commission, the亚博体育yb夜生活
Ministry of Education and four other authorities, the guideline stresses support for the island’s innovation of the traini
亚博体育yb夜生活女神会所ng, introduction and utilization of talent to provide a solid guarantee for its deeper reform and opening-up in all areas.
It calls for efforts to establish a more inclusive mechanism to introduce talent, further imp

The guideline aims to help train and cultivate ranks of talent in 10 to 15 years who are well-structured, competent, vigoro
us and commensurate with Hainan’s bid to become a free trade port with Chinese characteristics.
亚博体育yb夜生活女神会所Hainan was approved in April 2018 to build a pilot free trade zone and e
xplore the establishment of a free trade port with Chinese characteristics.
However, STI development is an arduous process, and the US has grow
亚博体育yb后花园n increasingly anxious that its lead is being eroded,” Hu said. “So instead of staying a
head via continued innovation, it has turned protectionist toward China and other developing countries and used u
nconventional means, from tariffs to travel restrictions, in the h女神会所ope of keeping them behind.”亚博体育yb后花园
At the same time, the US was plagued by many domestic issues, ranging
亚博体育yb后花园from growing social inequality to rising corporate influence, and ordinary US
people, notably those from Midwestern states, felt disenfranchised by globalization and technological progress b
ecause “the fruits of these trends have been mostly reaped by the elites from coastal states”.亚博体育yb后花园女神会所
“When internal issues become too difficult to handle, politicians often rely on scapeg
oating to divert public frustration and attract support, especially during election years,” Hu said.
亚博体育yb后花园”But the US public must realize that blaming China and other countries for its econo
mic, social and existential woes will not solve its issues, it will only exacerbate them to disastrous levels for all.”
亚博体育yb后花园女神会所Despite the US’s effort to disconnect with China, Hu said full detachment
was unlikely in the long run because it would not be in the interests of either country.
“China’s market and its pivotal role in the global industrial chain are too important for US companies to give up,” he said.亚博体育yb后花园
In addition, science requires the exchange of ideas and collaboration to progress. When faced with common ch
allenges, from climate change to changing ethical landscapes in artificial intelligence and biosciences, “it will re亚博体育yb后花园女神会所
quire a global joint effort to find the best solution to tackle these emerging issues,” Hu said.
“Dividing the scientific community and the world, as some politicians are implying, is dangerous and co亚博体育yb后花园
unterintuitive to maximizing the potential of science and its benefit for the people,” he said.
亚博体育yb后花园女神会所Given the unpredictability of the current US administration, China needs to “kee
p a rational, objective outlook and focus on improving its own capability at its own p
ace”, he said. “We must have the confidence and patience to get through turbulent times.”

Wang said he regarded the regulation as an “upgraded version” of rules previously made by the adm亚博体育yb419品茶微信
inistration, adding that the blacklist is urgently needed and necessary to improving the online environment.
亚博体育yb419″In the past, the administration often launched campaigns agains

idn’t take it seriously, because the administrative punishments were not strong enough to affect their businesses,” he said.亚博体育yb419品茶微信
“But the situation, I believe, will change, if the blacklist regulation, a bigger threat, takes effect.”
Zhu Wei, an associate professor at China University of Political Science and Law, applauded the regulation
亚博体育yb419seeing it as a new step by the administration to manage cyberspace by rule of law and ensure honesty online.
“I’m glad that the current version identifies those who disregard business morality as ‘d
亚博体育yb419品茶微信ishonest’, because attacks – such as posting untrue information between two internet businesses for c
ompetitive reasons – are often seen and not good for the business environment,” he added.
Wang said the blacklist is reasonable.
“When enterprises realize they could miss opportunities and lose out on developments亚博体育yb419
in the next three years of this internet era, they will strictly abide by rules and regulate their operations,” he said.
亚博体育yb419品茶微信Efforts to build an honest cyberspace have expanded in recent years. In December 2018, for instance, e-co

亚博体育yb乌托邦Editor‘s note: China Radio International recently published a commentary on its website exposing t

The United States has long used human rights as a means of putting pressure on other co亚博体育yb乌托邦品茶微信
untries. Whenever it is unhappy with some country, it will publish a human rights report of that country.
亚博体育yb乌托邦However, it should reflect on its own human rights situation before criticizing other c
ountries. For many nonwhite Americans, the “American Dream” is actually an “Am
erican nightmare” as white supremacy and incitement to hatred have become so rampant in the country.亚博体育yb乌托邦品茶微信
Data from Mapping Police Violence show that there are hundreds of police shootings of African-Americans in the US each year, many fatal.
亚博体育yb乌托邦In international politics, US politicians turn a blind eye to their own country’s bad human rights record, while issuing irres
ponsible comments about human rights in other countries. Recently they even attacked China’s policies in the Xin
jiang Uygur and Tibet autonomous regions, accusing China of restricting religious freedom.
Are US politicians sure that they are not blaming themselves? Their words are like jokes that aren’t funny.亚博体育yb乌托邦品茶微信
