The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

ming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock bands that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed. 上海千花坊

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a

reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

 上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a

nd techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所

nese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established B

eijing-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head fro

 上海千花坊女神会所m Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiulian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

ng was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.

For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s

上海乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.上海乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Supported by the embassies of Spanish-speaking countries such as Uruguay, Mexico and Argentina, the 12-hour-long open day sh上海乌托邦

owcased how diverse and intriguing the Spanish culture is through dance performances, film screenings, concerts, foods and more.

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.

with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.

上海419品茶微信At least three NIO ES8 vehicles had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transdepartmental 上海419

上海419品茶微信By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oct 20, 2018, have been equipped with modules of the specification model NEV-P102, which has no safety hazards, the company said.

A senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business envi

“We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, managing

partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.上海419品茶微信

Despite the uncertainty caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he believes “Chin

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for IP prot

ection, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the intellectual prope

rty rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tra

de dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

China supports highly professional, representative and influential international organiza

Olav Kjorven, chief strategy officer at EAT, an NGO based in Stockholm that advocates a fair, healthy

and sustainable global food system, warned that alarm bells are now ringing loudly on behalf of planet Earth.

“We are rapidly running out of time to secure a safe future for humanity; we have a climate crisis o

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.

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

wable power,” he said. “China’s support for solar power has directly contributed to the astonishingly rapid fall in

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

Andrew Chatzky wrote in a backgrounder published recently on the website of the US think tank.

While some are skeptical about the G20’s usefulness, they said, many

The G20 initially focused on broad macroeconomic policy, but ha

air and sustainable development, while the previous one in Germany addressed issues including corruption, mon
