From the film, the audience will get a sense of the indo

mitable spirit of the Chinese people and their attachment to the homeland. The audienc

e will also feel the profound historical friendship between the Chinese and Kazakh people,” s

ays Wang Zhi, deputy secretary-general of the festival’s organizing committee.

Jonathan Shen, the producer of The Composer, reveals that the crew spent five months shooting scenes in China, Russ

ia and Kazakhstan, and how the team used many special effects to re-create the wartime sequences.

Saturday, the festival’s opening day, marks the 80th anniversary of the debut performance of Yellow River

Cantata in Yan’an, the headquarters of the Red Army after the Long March which lasted from 1934 to 1936.

“We hope the film will comfort the soul of Xian,” says Shen, who is also the founder and CEO of Beijing-based Shinework Pictures.

Shen says he hopes The Composer, which was jointly financed by Kazakhst

an, will become a commercial success and encourage more foreign studios to produ

ce films with China. The film is scheduled to go on general release in China and Kazakhstan in May.

Sending anonymous gifts and sentimental notes has quic

ickly spread across the country as a way to express people’s gratitude toward the firefighters and wishes for their safety.

In Tongxiang, Zhejiang province, the fire and rescue bureau even received a car key, along with a letter.

“The car has been maintained, please feel free to use it. I hope the car will be of use in your work,” it said, accor

ding to a Sina Weibo post by the Fire and Rescue Bureau of the Ministry of Emergency Management.

But it doesn’t mean marriage is dead. It just means

 that marriage is no longer the only place where people make all their

major financial and personal decisions, or incur obligations to others,” Coontz said.

“First of all, I haven’t met my Mr. Right. Also, I’m extremely responsible with my own finances – I have to pay my rent and my stud

ent loans every month,” said Michelle Yu, a recent graduate of the University of Southern California, who just s

tarted her first job at a publishing company in Los Angeles. Yu has been single for more than four years.

“So, if my partner also has a ton of student loans or is in a bad financial situation, I’d r

ather be alone,” said Yu. “Now, I can well manage my own money and I’m saving the down payment for bu

ying an apartment in my neighborhood. I like to do that on my own pace.”

FUZHOU – In the Chinese city of Quanzhou, East China’s

Fujian province, workers at a garment factory of Kelme are busy stitching and ironing the white and blue jerseys of the Spanish football club Espanyol.

Their goal is to meet the soaring domestic demand boosted by Wu

Lei, a Chinese striker who joined the club a month ago. Wu made history by becoming the first Ch

inese player to score in a La Liga match on March 2, sending his fans into a frenzy.

“Over the last month, we have sold over 10,000 Wu Lei jerseys,” said Ke Yongyuan, presid

ent of Kelme (China), who owns the Yuanxiang garment company in the sportswear manufacturing hub.

Prior to Wu’s debut in Europe, Yuanxiang acquired 80 per

cent of Kelme’s shares and became the controlling shareholder of the renowned inter

national brand. Yuanxiang’s expansion offers a glimpse into Chinese manufacturers’ endeavor of going global.

hina posts rising power generationis installed at the Fuqing nu

China’s power generation rose 2.9 percent year on year to hit 1.09 trillion kwh in the

first two months of the year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

The expansion was 3.4 percentage points lower than that for December.

NBS attributed the slowing growth to a high comparative base from the same period last year and the warm weather this year.

In February alone, the power generation climbed 6.8 percent from the previous year, much faster than the growth in January.

In breakdown, generation of hydroelectricity posted faster growth in Jan.-Feb. period, rising 6.6 percent year on

year, compared with a 0.9-percent decrease last December, while solar power production saw a 3.8-percent increase.

Electricity generated by thermal, nuclear and wind power facilities expanded at a slower pace, the NBS data showed.

Premier Li also reported that enhanced efforts will be ma

 to reduce pollution from industrial production, coal used as fuel, and motor vehicles, which are the t

hree major sources of pollution. In addition, more will be done to reduce pollution by up

grading heating and switching from coal to clean energy in industrial northern China.

As for the still challenging problem of water pollution, according to the GWR, China pl

ans to achieve a 2 percent decrease in both chemical oxygen demand and ammonia nitrogen emi

ssions this year as the government strengthens its efforts to curb water and soil pollution.

America’s master of malapropisms, Yogi Berra, once said that “You can observe a lot by wat

ching”. We can see with our own eyes how much progress has begun to be made in Beijing and other cities reg

arding pollution but this is merely a good beginning of a very long struggle that will be measured in decades, not ye

ars. As I write this I can clearly see the mountains that ring Beijing from my window. Once a rare occurrence, I now see

them often. It’s not scientific but it’s my personal way of knowing that the government’s war on pollution is having the

desired effect and it’s heartening to know that much more is being done in what is, in essence, a war on pollution.

But the activity is surprising. After Trump and Kim’s first sum

  mit in Singapore, the US President appeared to tout reports that North Korea had begun dismantling the Sohae Satellite Launching Station, another name for Tongchang-ri.

  Dave Schmerler, a senior research associate at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies specializing in satell

ite imagery analysis, said that the more notable development is the work being done to the engine test stand, whe

re Pyongyang could theoretically improve the engines on its nuclear-capable missiles.

  North Korea has already successfully tested two types of ICBMs on

mobile launchers, so it doesn’t necessarily need the launch pad to test-fire long-range missiles.

  It’s also possible that the activity at the facility is a chess move in North Korea’s

negotiating strategy, Schmerler said, to ratchet up pressure on Washington.

  Trump and Pompeo have touted as progress the fact that North Korea has not conducted any missile or nuclear tests in more than a year.

  ”The site itself, in the macro-sense, is very transparent. And the North Koreans know we are always watching,” he said.

  ”When they do something at Sohae, they know that this could very easily be in the public conversation for domestic American politics.”

  It’s unclear if the recent developments will affect how the White House moves forward with North Korea.
