More than 90 percen上海后花园e respondents said th

Wong Ka-ngai, chairman of the Hong Kong Tour Guides General Union上海后花园

A tour guide used to receive 12 to 15 tour groups per month on average in July and August in p

上海后花园revious years. But this year, the protests led to mass cancellations by tour groups from the Chinese mainland, Sou

theast Asia, Europe and the United States, Wong said. Many tour guides received no groups in August, he said.

The city’s tourism sector is facing a recession worse than that during the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome out上海后花园

break in 2003, said Lau Chun-yuen, chairman of the Hong Kong Certified Tour Escort Association.

Many tourism employees would use revenues earned in the high season to h

he National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) on Wednesday st

aged The Tales of Hoffmann, a renowned opera by light opera master Jacques Offenbach.上海后花园

Inspired by the life experience of the German writer and poet E.T.A Hoffmann, the opera tells l

上海后花园女神会所ove stories of Hoffmann and three women. He experiences romantic love, but each ends in tragedy. The

repeated blows make the poet lose passion for love and devote himself to art and poetry.

The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra

pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s

hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园

It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa

上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per

formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.

The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on

e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp

ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap

abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.

Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio

n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc

ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to

the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di

mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.

In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef

ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w

hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.

Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre

ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”

. “It might not replace human teachers, but it can free them from tedious tasks.”

For years, burnout has been a serious issue for the teaching profession around the globe. According

to a 2014 report by the Alliance for Excellent Education, a teachers’ advocacy group, roughly 50

0,000 teachers in the United States either move to new jobs or leave the profession every year.

Speaking at the 2019 National Education Work Conference in Beijing, Chen Baosheng, minister of education, said his minis

“We have to free teachers from pointless paperwork and nonteaching-related work,” he said.

“We have to give time and energy back to teachers to let them work on their research and on preparing lessons.”

Robin Haynes Fisher, 44, died in the so-called “death

h zone” known for low levels of oxygen on descent from the summit, Mira Acharya, a tourism department official, said.

He is the eighth fatality on Qomolangma in the current climbing season that ends this month.

“He died because of weakness after a long ascent and difficult descent,” Mu

rari Sharma of the Everest Parivar Treks company that arranged his logistics told Re

Fellow guides changed Fisher’s oxygen bottle and offered him water, but could not save him, Sharma said.

While eating alone is hardly a novel experience in many

“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget

her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle

agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.

Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi

viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes-meat, fish, vegetables and soup-for everyone to share.

Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.

The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo

graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi

nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.

The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.

Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa

competitors. This was the policy followed by the US in the

 in the 19th century and by Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea in the years after World War II.

China is no longer a poor country. It can no longer compete by using l

ow-wage labor. Fortunately, it has now developed world-class companies that are incr

easingly developing new products and services that can compete successfully in many foreign markets.

Now that it has reached middle-income status, China’s economic strategy will focus on creating a highly competitive dom

estic market that forces companies to produce high-value goods so they can pay high wages to highly skilled people.

Because of its long experience in manufacturing, much of th

at push will be focused on higher value-added production, using the new technologies of rob

otics, artificial intelligence, the internet of things and 5G. This is the only way to avoid the middle-income trap.
