上海乌托邦品茶微信tudents enrolled in the global engagement program launched
by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on June 26 will be engaged in tackling typical issues
faced by countries involved in China and the Belt and Road Initiative. According to the statement of the univer上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.
“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

Cao will lead one of the teams in investigations of villages in Zhejiang province’s Lishui city.
This project will involve setting up furniture and facilities that are
urgently needed by residents. The team will later visit villages in the Italian Alps to explore ne上海乌托邦品茶微信

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.
All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled
to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419
Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

Tiangong II was put into orbit in September 2016 atop a Long March 2F carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite La
unch Center in the Gobi Desert. The space lab is 10.4 meters high, 3.35 m in diameter and weighs 8.6 metric tons.
上海419品茶微信Two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, entered the lab that October after the
ir Shenzhou XI spacecraft docked with the lab and remained there for 30 days.
From April to September 2017, Tiangong II and Tianzhou I cargo spacecraft performed several docking and in-orbit refuel

ecent annual gathering of the World Health Assembly in Geneva expressed worry and optimi
sm in almost equal measure. Delegates at the assembly－the decision-making body of the World He上海千花坊
上海千花坊女神会所alth Organization－likened the scope of the world’s health crisis to that of the threat posed by climate change. They also ag
reed, however, that digital technology and data will play a crucial role in accelerating efforts to achieve health for all.上海千花坊
In many respects, the world’s health has improved markedly in recent decades: average global life expectancy has incr
eased by more than five years, while childhood mortality has declined by more than 50 percent since 1990. Yet half the wo上海千花坊
rld’s population still lacks full access to basic health services, and health-related expenses drive roughly 100 m
上海千花坊女神会所illion people into poverty every year. The problem is particularly severe in low-and middle-income countries, where the fin
ancial burden of the four most frequent non-communicable diseases alone (cardiovascular disease, cancer, dia
betes and chronic respiratory diseases) is expected to surpass $7 trillion from 2011 to 2025, according to WHO.上海千花坊
At the same time, the world is just beginning to recognize the potential of digitally enhanced data to improve health. With increased use of digital tech
上海千花坊nology, we can help people stay healthy, rather than waiting for them to get sick. We can make reactive healthcare s
ystems proactive and－thanks to artificial intelligence (AI)－even predictive.
Most cost-effective way to meet health-related SDGs上海千花坊女神会所
In our view, digital health is the most efficient, cost-effective way for the world to meet the United Nations Sustainable Develo
上海千花坊pment Goals’ health-related targets－particularly universal health coverage, whereby everyone can access the q
uality care they need without incurring financial hardship. This is also a high priority for WHO, which earlier this
year created a Department of Digital Health and published its first set of guidelines on the subject.上海千花坊
With several major global strategy-setting meetings ahead, including the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Co
上海千花坊女神会所verage in New York in September, the world must act now to realize the promise of digital health. We see three dist
inct opportunities for cross-sectoral partnerships: in prediction, prevention and healthcare delivery.
Understanding－and, where possible, predicting－the health profile of populations is integral to providing better上海千花坊女神会所
care. Digitalized data collection, including through the use of AI and machine learning, can help healthcare sys
tems to detect risk factors in advance and respond quickly to prevent disease. Real-time data can inform planning and re
source-allocation decisions, reduce costs, and improve the overall quality of care. Better
processes for ensuring data security and privacy are also essential to implement predictive systems at scale.
Chinese and Western elements and values can find common ground. A good example being the part in the trailer where the matchmaker describes the qu
alities that make for a good wife, namely a woman being “quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined”. This is said with M上海千花网品茶微信
ulan appearing in two images. One has her dressing as a woman, the other with her practicing sword. Obviously Disney de
上海千花网scribed Mulan as a warrior, an independent female who can save herself instead of waiting for someone to save her.
That’s a good point where Chinese and Western values are similar because gender equality and female independence are上海千花网
now valued in both cultures. It will strike a chord with both Chinese and Western audiences.
上海千花网品茶微信But whatever styles her clothes and makeup follow, Mulan is a Chinese legendary heroine and she embodies the virtues of Chinese wo
men. Disney’s Mulan should also prompt the Chinese movie industry to make better use of Chinese stories. Chinese scriptwriters an
d directors can well tell stories about Chinese ancient heroes to the world, instead of waiting for Disney or H上海千花网
ollywood to tell them. Good stories move audiences of the whole world because their hearts are interconnected.

上海后花园Zupko was quoted as saying a world-class university should be inclusive of different cultures, which was key to Tsinghua hiring him.
He illustrates the university’s continued internationalization efforts
. This strategy at many universities on the Chinese mainland has helped them to achieve better上海后花园女神会所
standings globally, as internationalization is an important factor in university rankings.
上海后花园In the latest QS World University Rankings published by higher education analyst QS Qu
acquarelli Symonds in London, six mainland universities made it into the world’s top 100.
Tsinghua is China’s highest-ranked university on the list, rising from 17th place last year to 16th. Peking University ros上海后花园
e eight places to 22nd, with both achieving the best rankings since the list was first published in 2004.
Fudan University in Shanghai ranked third among mainland 女神会所universities, up four place上海后花园
s year-on-year and 31 places since 2015. Zhejiang University’s rankings rose 14 places to 54th.
QS ranked 1,000 universities from 82 countries and regions. They are measured on academic standing, grad
上海后花园女神会所uate employability, student-to-staff ratio, research impact and internationalization.
Last year, more than 16,000 faculty and students went abroad for visits and exchanges, and
over 3,700 international students from 128 countries were studying at Tsinghua, he said.上海后花园
It is not the only university pursuing a more globalized education, with neighboring Peking University also rec
ently announcing its Global Excellence Strategy, which aims to enhance international exchanges and co
o上海后花园女神会所peration, overcome development barriers, gather high-quality resources and stimulate collegial progress.
The strategy features six development concepts: creativity, leade
rship, openness, uniqueness, diversity and shaping, the university said.
In his speech to celebrate Tsinghua’s 108th anniversary, Qiu Yon上海后花园
g, the institution’s president, said it is embracing the vision of being a global uni
versity, as well as promoting and representing the development of higher education in China.
上海后花园女神会所The university continues to further implement its global strategy, which strives to
enhance the competence of its students worldwide, conduct high-end research for the benefit of both China an
d the world, promote international exchanges and cooperation, and strengthen its global impact, he said.
A more open Tsinghua will embrace the world, and the university has signed cooperatio上海后花园女神会所
n agreements with 285 universities and research institutes in 50 countries, Qiu added.
Tubo culture are still at an early stage.”We’ve only revealed the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “This exhibition is not so muc
h designed to come up with answers, but rather to raise more questions.”上海千花坊女神会所
From his point of view, further achievements in the field will require more solid support from archaeologists.
上海千花坊Pritzker, 36, who received his PhD from the University of Oxford with a f
ocus on the early textual history of Tibet, first came to the mountains of the Himalayas at
just 4 years old. With his parents, he spent a large part of his childhood living in Nepal.上海千花坊女神会所
For him, this exhibition represents a long-held family dream that has finally come true.
The Pritzker family from Chicago is famed for its achievements in entrepreneurship an上海千花坊
d philanthropy. It funds the Pritzker Architecture Prize, one of the world’s leading architecture awards.
上海千花坊David’s parents Thomas and Margot Pritzker first came to the Hi
malayas in 1975 and soon became “addicted” to the place. Since then, the couple has made frequ
ent treks through the mountain ranges there. They first visited the Tibet autonomous region in 1981.
“When we started, the (ancient) Greek and Roman cultures and Renaissance were really上海千花坊女神会所
well understood in the West, and there was no new ground to be broken,” Thomas Pritzker, 69, tells China Daily.
“But here we discovered a lot of new ground to cover,” he sa
上海千花坊女神会所ys. “Tubo studies were in their infancy then, and we could do things that are really exciting.”
In recent years, studies of the Reshui site, a Tubo graveyard in Dula
n county, Qinghai province, have offered scholars a clearer picture of the communication betw上海千花坊
een Tang and Tubo peoples. Gold plaques unearthed from the site are also on show at the exhibition in Dunhuang, acc
o上海千花坊女神会所rding to Luo Wenhua, a researcher from the Palace Museum in Beijing and also one of the curators of the exhibition.
By comparison, studies of burial sites in Ngari offer a more global perspective through its links with other civilizations outside of China.上海千花坊
“However, these regions are on the frontiers of the Tubo regime,” Luo says. “Details of t
he rulers’ lives still largely remain a mystery due to a lack of archaeological evidence.上海千花坊女神会所
“It’s interesting for David and I to discuss where the exhibits first origin
ated,” he says. “That will trigger a great deal of inspiration for joint studies.”
Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro
ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦
According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event
上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo
rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.
“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦
During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l
上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.
Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes－with Ca
ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信
hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.
“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦
form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”
Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr
上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed
earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo
ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid
er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine－all made of gold－all de
monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.
Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p

The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s
cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ
ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”
