Experts from Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital in Central China’s Hubei province

上海419论坛have travelled thousands of kilometers across the nation to conduct examinations on chi

ldren with congenital heart diseases and carry out surgeries free of charge, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported.

Ever since the hospital was founded in 1999, the team of medical experts led by Tao L

iang, head of the hospital’s cardiothoracic surgery department, has paid visits to a number of poverty-str上海419论坛女神会所

icken regions, old revolutionary base areas and remote mountainous areas. In the past eight years, they have visited T

ibet autonomous region five times, bringing professional medical assistance to local residents.

上海419论坛Phuntsok Yangdron, a 16-year-old Tibetan girl, received help from experts at Wuhan Asia Heart Hospital seven years ago.

In 2012, she was diagnosed with leakage in her left atrium and right heart cro

wn. Later, she was transferred to Wuhan to receive heart surgery, and Tao was her surgeon.上海419论坛女神会所

The two met again this year when the hospital’s expert team revisited Yangdron’s hometown in Naidong county, Shannan, Tibet autonomous

region. The teenage girl was excited to see Tao, she said. “I still remember how frightened I was when I went to Wuhan. I w

上海419论坛女神会所as 9 years old, alone and far away from home, and was about to receive my first ever heart surgery.”

But Yangdron was lucky. “The doctors at the hospital were very kind to me,” she said. “They comforted m

e, took care of me. They gave me the courage to do the surgery without too many worries.”

After undergoing the minimally invasive surgery, Yangdron recovered quickly and the operation was a total success.

ung Chinese consumers 上海419论坛 passion for cocktail bar

The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc

上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit

ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe

ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.

A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信

l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.

Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛

e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me

tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.

上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua

lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit

beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛

US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.

上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready

to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count

ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛

“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.

He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr

essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信

owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.

Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w

hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信

hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

The plant covers an area of 14,000 square meters and sits right next to the South Central Axis.上海419论坛品茶微信

It’s about 800 meters away from the iconic Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests at the Te

After months of constru上海419论坛ction, Yongyuan opened in late June.

The southern building which used to be Sanlu Plant’s production area now serves a space for the high-end customization and in

Yongyuan park will focus on the development of intangible cultural heritage. It was set up to

allow inheritors to work with designers and find ways to blend the traditional arts more seamlessly into public life.

上海419论坛品茶微信So far, many inheritors are confined to limited development space, says Li.

The cultural product concept falls behind the times and is separated from modern design and sales, he adds.

“We need to bring together good designers and intangible culture inheritors for product innovation,” Li says.上海419论坛品茶微信

White cannot be calle上海419论坛ack in XinjiangBaisha L

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma

n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛

r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,

上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.

This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth

er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛

man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people

上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.

As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji

ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所

cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.

vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin

jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所

ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.

上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre

judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛

Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of

supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛

There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive

behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li

nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th

e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one

of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

Visitors to the barracks can see combat performances and military demonstr

oing exhibition at the National Museum of China that runs through Sept 22. Techn

icians have used cutting-edge technology to bring to life the work of the gifted artist through an all-encompassing pr

The 35-minute show is being staged inside a purpose-built rectangular box occ

upying a section of the spacious third-floor corridor of the National Museum of China.

The viewer first encounters Van Gogh through a space set out like a galler

y, in which the painter’s self-portraits are displayed on wall-mounted screens. Then the gal

lery changes into different scenes inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic works, where viewers “step inside” these fam

iliar landscapes. One moment, viewers are surrounded by blossoming almond trees, while the next, they watch cr

ows flying over expansive wheat fields. Overhead, a dreamy, starlit night sky unfolds.

In recent years, Van Gogh has been the subject of many popular interactive exhibitions at home and abroad, where digital t
