A veteran of such US universities as the University of Chicago and Yale University has become the first foreigner appointed by a Beij上海千花坊
ing university to a management position since the reform and opening-up policy was launched in 1978.
上海千花坊David Zupko was recently appointed deputy director of Tsinghua University’s global cooperation
and communication office after working at different universities in the United States for more than 20 years.
In 2017, when he was asked by the National Cultural Heritage Ad上海千花坊品茶微信
ministration if he would consider exhibiting his family collection in China, he agreed.
His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊
y, who spent over a year contacting institutions abroad and around China to contribute to the exhibition.
上海千花坊品茶微信The Pritzker Art Collaborative brought 35 artifacts to the exhibition in Dunhuang. It is joined by key Chin
ese institutions, such as the National Museum of China, the Palace Museum and the Shaanxi History Mus
eum in Xi’an, as well as several other major overseas collections, including the Al Thani Collection owned by the Qatari ru上海千花坊
ling family, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan.
Abegg-Stiftung, a Swiss collection that mainly features textiles, dropped its “zero l上海千花坊品茶微信

A hanging brocade with roundel featuring a pair of stags locking horns, on loan from Abegg-Stiftung, is one of the m

“The Silk Road carries a message for all of us today,” Thomas Pritzker says. “The world will

“I did the interior design myself, from tables and chairs to wood carvings on the ceiling,” Hu上海千花坊女神会所

In 2007, Russia Coffee & Food was rated as one of the 50 best restaurants in China by National Geographic magazine, Hu said.
Hu loves writing about the city and has finished several novels. He published his first book in

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult
ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.
Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所
ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo
reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra
de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所
titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.
An important player for global governance
The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm
ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves
tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne
gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and
expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.
On the one hand, Xi’s speech brought hope to the world economy at a time when glo
bal economic recovery is facing challenges and uncertainties thanks to the rise of trade protectionism and unila
teralism in some economies since 2017. In fact, protectionism and unilateralism have become an impediment to global growth.
With his stage adaptation of Lao She’s classic novella This Life of Mine, actor-director Fang Xu continues to celebrate the work of the renowned author, Chen Nan reports.
上海千花坊He is a low-ranking policeman, born and raised in Beijing. He has waited for years to become the head of his local police station but is replaced by a new policeman. He gets married but his wife runs away with his best friend. Soon after, he is sent to work in a small town, where he is later told that his son has died.
It’s the story of Fuhai, the protagonist of This Life of Mine, a novella by renowned Chinese writer Lao She (1899-1966), which was published in 1937.上海千花坊
The novella chronicles the life story of Fuhai which is set against the backdrop of the late Qi
ng Dynasty (1644-1911). It was adapted into a monologue of the same name by actor-director Fang上海千花坊女神会所
Xu and premiered at the Central Academy of Drama, from where Fang graduated in 2011.
Enlisting Shu Yi, the son of Lao She, as a consultant, Fang directed and performed the monologu
e himself, before embarking on a nationwide tour with around 60 shows after its debut.上海千花坊
To mark the 120th anniversary of Lao She’s birth this year, Fang decided to revive the
work for the stage on July 27 and 28 at the Capital Theater in Beijing following a three-year hiatus.
“Back in 2011, when I discussed the idea of turning This Life of Mine into a monologue, my colleagues were not really s上海千花坊女神会所
ure about the idea since it was a challenge to tell a man’s life story onstage within the space of 100 minutes all on my ow
n, “recalls the 53-year-old Beijing native. “But I was insistent and it turned out to be the right decision.上海千花坊女神会所
Fuhai tells his life story in a humorous way despite all the suffering and sorrow. He is hopeful about his life, but always ends u
p disappointed. Lao She is sympathetic toward Fuhai, as well as to the suffering of many other poor people livi
ng through those chaotic years,” Fang adds. “What makes this story interesting is that it still works today. When we look ba
ck at our own lives, we, like Fuhai, try to remain positive even when bad things happen.”
After watching Fang’s monologue at its premiere at the Central Academy of Drama in 2011, Shu Yi sa
id: “It’s one of the best adaptations of my father’s works. Fang’s adaptation is loyal to the spirit of his novella.”
Born as Shu Qingchun to a Manchu family in Beijing in 1899, Lao She is best known f
or his vivid descriptions of ordinary life, especially of poor people, which reflect the social reality of the time.
His precise depictions of local hutong life sparkle with his unique sense of humor and the raw dialect of the capital.
Lao She’s novels, including Rickshaw Boy and Four Generations Under One Roof, and his plays, such as Long Xu Gou (Dra
gon Beard Ditch) and Teahouse, have earned him the reputation as a literary master worldwide.

“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene

Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e

Yang hails from Nanjing, Jiangsu province, and it was there that P.K. 14 was formed nearly 22 y

“I love record stores,” Yang, 46, says. “Of course listening to music

The band’s latest album, released on Oct 14, 2018, was recorded in Be
