Masood Khalid, Pakistani ambassador to China, said Chinese culture is a reflection of the cou

The ambassador listed a variety of manifestations of Chinese culture, which include Chinese cuisine, dance, art, and costume.
“The way Chinese people attach importance to their family and their children, lookin

“The ambassador, Natalia Galibarenko, was not at the embassy at the time and no other staff were injured,” said the report of Sky News.
The 16th Chinese Bridge, an annual Chinese proficiency contest for school kids, college
students and adult learners of Chinese, was held at the University of Latvia Friday and Saturday.
This year’s competition, themed One World, One Family, gathered 64 contestants
in total in Latvia, including 14 in the adult group, 24 in the high school group and 24 in the primary school group.
The contestants were required to demonstrate their Chinese language skills by introducing themselves and m
aking speeches on various topics in Chinese, participate in a quiz on Chinese culture and perform in a talent show.
Each division, namely college students, high school students and
primary school students, has three groups of senior, intermediate and junior.
ieties introduced to the Philippines through the Green Super Rice project are capable of thriving in harsh environments and maintaining steady yields.
“After Typhoon Haiyan swept through Leyte Island in the central Phi
lippines in November 2013, we found that the Green Super Rice variety was one of the few that w
as still growing when submerged in saline water,” he said. “Local farmers were elated and regained hope.”
In West Africa, six Green Super Rice varieties with high-yield potential and strong tolerance to drought, salinity and iron to
xicity have been developed, and about 14.5 metric tons of such seeds were distributed to local rice breeders, ac
cording to Baboucarr Manneh, a researcher with the African Rice Center in Cote d’Ivoire.
“Moreover, about 500 scientists, technicians and farmers hav
e been trained in fields such as breeding, seed production and crop management th
rough the project. The training helps increase their capability and achieve sustainable growth in the future,” he said.

According to Zhao Yongheng, a researcher from the National Astronomical Ob
servatories of China, LAMOST’s latest spectra data is the world’s most complete astronomical data set,
providing a reference for the formation and evolution of the Milky Way as well as other galaxies.
More than 100 institutes and universities from the US, Germ
any, Belgium, Denmark and other countries and regions around the world are using this dat
a to carry out research on the evolution of the Milky Way, stellar physics and special celestial bodies.
With LAMOST, Chinese astronomers have discovered the most lithium
-rich giant star ever known, as well as more than 10,000 metal-poor star candidates, wh
ich may help shed light on the early universe and the emergence of the first stars and galaxies.

In the past, the residents in Chinese mainland could only apply for permits in their house
hold registration places with relevant documents, including identification card, hukou and application form.
National Immigration Administration holds a press conference on March 26, 2019.
Under the new measure, the residents will provide the same documents to apply for th
e passports and travel permits in their nearby exit and entry management departments, it said.
With the rapid development of China’s economy and society, a growing
number of people have been living, stuadying and working away from their hometown, and th
ere has been a strong demand for them to apply for the passports or travel permits in different places.
Data provided by the National Immigration Administra
tion show, this year, an estimated 21 million people will apply for passports and travel permits in di
outlines of soft tissue have been found at the Burgess Shale in Canada, as well as some by the Chengjiang River in Yunnan province. The
newly discovered fossils provide a completely different ecosystem of organisms that lived around the same time, the study said.
Unlike other Cambrian fossil troves, the Qingjiang biota appears to conta
in a high proportion of jellyfish and comb jellies, which are extremely rare at other sites.
Zhang Xingliang, a professor at Northwest University and co-author of the p
aper, said that compared with the Chengjiang biota in the shallow water along the coast, Qi
ngjiang biota lived in deep ocean, making the two biota complementary in their scientific significance.
“The treasure trove of the Qingjiang biota provides an exciting opportunity to explore how paleoenvironmental conditi
ons influenced ecological structuring and evolutionary drivers during the Cambrian explosion,” said Allis
on Daley, a paleontologist at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, who was not involved in the study.
