Zhou Ming, deputy director of Art Exhibitions China, says he b
elieves the exhibition would arouse a new enthusiasm among the Japanese people for t上海龙凤419
he culture of the Three Kingdoms and help them gain a deeper understanding of the period’s history.
上海龙凤419品茶微信According to the exhibition, the Three Kingdoms period began around 1,800 years ago
amid the chaos of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The events of this time, along with tales about the rise and fa
ll of the era’s various warlords, were recorded and later became popular legends.上海龙凤419
They provided the inspiration for numerous works of poetry, literature and painting, leading to
the formation of a rich and colorful “Three Kingdoms culture” that still resonates to this day.上海龙凤419
Up until now, the stories of the Three Kingdoms have been contin
uously developed in various forms in Japan, including novels, comics, puppet shows and
games, with many characters of the Three Kingdoms familiar to the Japanese people.

ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu
died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛
pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s
上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.
Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not
accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛
spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the
上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge
nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.
To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus
ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信
ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma
上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th
e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi
cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信
Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro
上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.
Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha
ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信
s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu
上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q
uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信
mposer and conductor)’s Ghost Opera, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (in New YorkW
ithin a short time, Wu and Kronos embarked on a worldwide musical tour. Their performances were well received.
Major convenience stores in Japan announced on Tuesday that the

上海夜生活品茶微信7-Eleven Japan Co, Lawson Inc and FamilyMart Co, the top three convenience store chain operators, have all dec
ided to end the sale of adult publications and manga comics by the end of August, citing concerns over har

The companies said they hope the decision will create a more w
上海夜生活品茶微信elcoming environment for women and children and will avoid giving off a bad impression o
f the country as Japan prepares for a flood of foreign visitors during the sports events.
“In the past, 7-Eleven was mostly used by male customers to buy beverages and fast foo上海夜生活

上海夜生活”However, as the role and usage of 7-Eleven stores has changed in recent years, 7-Eleven beca

“We also considered the increasing number of foreign custom

The move will not have a major economic impact on the chain, as adult magazines account for less than上海夜生活
1 percent of total sales at the roughly 20,000 7-Eleven stores across Japan, a spokesperson said.
According to Lawson, the company had already stopped selling such magazines at outlets in Okinaw上海夜生活品茶微信、

FamilyMart reported that 2,000 of its 16,000 franchises had already stopped selling adult magazines.

Graduates trained in cooking the crustaceans earn double the average
Almost China’s national snack, people’s strong love for crawfish h上海419论坛女神会所
as meant graduates who specialize in the dish can earn twice as much as others with college degrees.
上海419论坛Thirty-five graduates who studied how to cook crawfish-also called crayfish-for two years, ob
tained vocational degrees from Qianjiang Crayfish School in Hubei province recently.上海419论坛
Twenty-nine of them have already secured jobs with average monthly salaries of more than 1
上海419论坛0,000 yuan ($1,457) due to the large demand for crawfish chefs, said Wang Zhongqiu, a teacher at the vocational college. He ad
ded that the other six graduates decided to open their own crawfish restaurant.
According to a report by Mycos, an educational research compa上海419论坛女神会所
ny, the average monthly salary for college graduates in China was 4,624 yuan in 2018.
上海419论坛It is quite common for crawfish chefs with more than three years’ experience to earn 30,000-50,000 yuan a month and the scho
ol plans to enroll another 200 students in crawfish-related majors this year, Wang said.
The school first introduced three majors related to the cooking, marketing and management of crawfish in 2017 and be上海419论坛女神会所
came the first and only college nurturing talent for the crawfish industry, he said.
上海419论坛”Apart from the three majors, it plans to open a new major in crawfish breeding. From raising baby crawfish, transporting the
m to the restaurant and finally bring the dishes to the table, we want to cultivate talent in all crawfish-related areas.”
Despite the good pay, the work is onerous. Chefs have to work o上海419论坛女神会所
vertime and some have to cook hundreds of kilograms of crawfish each day, Wang said.
上海419论坛女神会所The peak season for crawfish is from March to November, so they will earn much less during the slow season, he added.
Huang Yu, 21, is a graduate from the crawfish school. He has ope
ned a crawfish restaurant with his family in Yichang, Hubei province, his hometown.

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419
ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419
nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信
increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which
上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r
estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信
ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec
上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a
nd on the other hand, she wanted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.
