At 1:30 p.m. on the 9th day, two pieces of Qing Palace Spring Festival
opera folds were found in front of the south wall of Yangxin Palace by
the staff of Beijing Guowen Wan Garden Ancient Construction Co., Ltd. of the Palace Museum Engineering Management Office and Yangxin Palace Renovation Construction Unit.
Since the research protection project of Yangxindian entered the stage of renovation and implementation in September, 2018, the Engineering Management Office
immediately started the work of protection of cultural relics in Yangxindian area, on-site deep investigation and s
caffolding erection for renovation. On the afternoon of Jan. 9, repairing craftsmen found thin rolled paper stacking betw
een the air permeability and the space between the roots of the pillars while cleaning out the air permeability of brick carvings and exploring the decay of the roots of the pillars.
After the staff took out the paper, they found that its texture was soft, its color was yellowish, and its handwriting was basically clear. In its first joint book, the words “Qianlong Bu
ilding Office on November 19, 24″ and “Chonghua Palace Undertaking” were written. The first line o
f the voucher was marked “Dec. 30” and “Rising the Level to Remove the Year, Welcoming the Year
of Happy Birthday, Looking at the State and going to Shan
ghai…”. Wait for 19 repertoire lists and performers lists. After investigation, the title of the two operas is the same, and the commentary
column of the performers is slightly different. After checking, the researcher confirmed that the item should be presented as a New Year’s Eve 30 drama p
rogram list by the founding Office of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty in the 24th year of the reign of Emperor Qianlong.
After the discovery of the play, the Engineering Management Office quickly reported to the hospital leadership, and informed the relevant departments to go to record and identify
. According to palace opera researchers, there are no such forms of repertoire in the existing cultural relics of the Palace Museum. This discovery will be helpful to the in-depth study of palace opera and Qing Dynasty Festival ]
culture. The cultural relics have been handed over to the Palace Museum Statutes and Regulatio
ns Section for safekeeping, and will be displayed to the public at an appropriate time after the completion of the restoration study.
Since the divorce announcement with Yang Wei, Liu Kaiwei seldom appeared in public. The last time he appeared was when he was photographed by the media alone. However,
recently, the media again photographed Liu Kaiwei traveling alone. This time, he was not alone, but with his daughter Xiaonuomi. This is the
first time Liu Kaiwei appeared with his daughter after his divorce. Faced with the surroundings and questions of many reporters, Liu Kaiwei
was only one. When the reporter asked Xiaonuomi if his mother would come back to accompany him
in the New Year, Xiaonuomi just made a sweet “gracious” sound, which was a painful word.
After their divorce, Liu Kaiwei and Yang Fang basically did not appear. They were also photographed by the media and paparazzi. Recently, he
and his family went out for dinner and met the media reporters again. However, Liu Kaiwei himself was very generous and did not feel bored
with the reporters. On the contrary, Liu Kaiwei also wished the reporters a happy New Year.
Liu Kaiwei also carefully wished reporters not to be too close to take photos because the flash is not good for the eyes of glutinous rice.
Liu Kaiwei met many reporters this time and did not say any information. He did not mention anything about his predecessor Yang Wei.
But Xiao Nuomi was curious about reporters. When she asked her mother whether she would come
back for the New Year, Xiao Nuomi quickly answered “En”, which melted many people’s hearts,
because many people did not know that Xiao Nuomi’s “En” was a rising tone, obviously she was very happy.
Xiao Nuomi is happy, because her mother will come back in the New Year, but many onlookers are very distressed by Xiao Nuomi. Although
Xiao Nuomi has a good relationship with her mother Yang Fang, she has become a single-parent family at a young age, which is a growing trauma and regret.
In fact, to tell you the truth, Liu Kaiwei is very good, very polite and considerate. Divorce from Yang Fang
may be a real helplessness. Of course, no one is right or wrong in marriage, feelings no longer exist. Separation is also a good choice, which is the respect and understanding of each other.
We still hope that the media can give them more private space. Liu Kaiwei has been protecting his
daughter, media reporters and even paparazzi. We still need to set aside a little space for them. No interruption is the best blessing.
Just after the winter solstice, the temperature in Zhaotong to Shanbao area of Yunnan has dropped to 56 degrees,
along the way pine trees have “put on” a layer of ice. In January 2018, a picture of a local student with a frost on his head was widely disseminated after media reports.
Wang Fuman, the protagonist of the picture, was called “Ice Flower Boy” and attracted attention.
A year has passed. How is the life of “Ice Flower Boy”? What changes have taken place in the Turn Shanbao Primary School where “
Ice Flower Boy” is located? Recently, people’s network reporters came to Zhaotong Ludian for a field visit.

The school has built a new dormitory for heating and water supply.
Last June, the Xiaomans moved into their new house. The new house is very big.
The entrance is the cement road. It only takes 10 minutes to walk along the cement road to Zhuanshanbao Primary School.
so life will surely get better and better in the future.” Wang Gangkui, Wang Fuman’s father, said with a laugh.
Wang Gangkui now works at a construction site in Kunming of the Third Bureau of China Construction.
He can weld and build bricks and walls. He earns about 200 yuan a day. In the local area, such income is middle-class.
As the year approached, Wang Gangkui returned from Kunming’s construction site to buy his New Year’s Goods.

Nowadays, the classrooms of Zhuanshan Bao Primary School are equipped with high-power heating equipment. The school provides hot water uninterruptedly during the day.
Children will no longer write their homework red-handed in the classroom. At the same time, the school has built a new dormitory, and the students who are far away can stay in the school.
Once a “celebrity” Wang Fuman, many of the “first” in his life were engraved in 2018. In this year, Wang Fuman went to Beijing for the first time.
He was still studying hard. His ideal was still to be a policeman who caught bad people and to share his trip to Beijing with his classmates from time to time.
“Mathematics scores are in the top three in the class and the top five in the class. At present,
he is a member of the Labor Committee in the class and has a good relationship with his classmates.” Fu Heng, vice principal of Zhuanshanbao Primary School, said.
Located in the alpine mountainous area of Wumeng Mountain, the turning hill is winter for half a year. “From September to April and May of next year, it is cold and windy, and frosting of hair is common here.”
Tang Yadong, mayor of Xinjie Town, Ludian County, introduced that local workers erecting electric poles, peasants working in the fields,
and cadres working in poverty alleviation in villages and households. They also often “white” head, “Ice Boy” after the fire, they will be jokingly called “Uncle Ice Flower”.
After the “Ice Flower Boys” were concerned, various sectors of society donated money and materials to help poor local children.
Most of the donated materials are sports goods, clothing, heating equipment and so on. With these and government procurement, the local primary schools have improved the basic equipment of the school.
Zhuanshanbao Primary School has set up its own laboratory, art room and computer room, and electronic teaching materials are also used in the classroom.
Yunnan Youth Foundation also initiated the “Youth Warm Winter Action” in January 2018.
Up to now, Yunnan Youth Foundation has raised a total of 3471265.86 yuan in special donations,
with a funding standard of 500 yuan per person, benefiting 6943 families with financial difficulties mainly left-behind children in Yunnan Province, so that they can spend the winter warmly and happy New Year.

Many local measures are taken to fight against poverty. Since 2018, Ludian County has steadfastly carried out household housing, industrial development, basic improvement, undertakings matching,
spiritual poverty alleviation and other work. It has achieved the listing of 15 poverty-stricken villages, with 4559 households and 17857 people out of poverty.
The incidence of poverty has dropped by 4.91 percentage points compared with the end of 2017.
Tang Yadong, mayor of Xinjie Town, also lamented that the total investment in poverty alleviation and fortification in Xinjie Town in recent two years far exceeded the total investment since the founding of the town. “
People’s life has been greatly improved. Ice Flower Boys will walk a good road and go to school, and their future life will be better and better. They will strive to get rid of poverty in 2019.”

“The school has also built dormitories. The students who have traveled a long way can live in the school.
The quilts are all thicker. All of them are provided by the school.” Zhuanshan Bao is a deep poverty-stricken area in Zhaotong.
The accommodation condition of the school is much better than that of many students’families. At one time, parents asked the school if they could let their children live on weekends.
“The concern of the society makes students deeply feel the beauty of the world. The students’spiritual outlook has changed greatly. They have a clear goal when they get out of the mountains.
The students have planted seeds of dreams in their hearts, and the future can be expected.” Fu Heng commented on the students’changes.
Ravi?”Ravi nodded vigorously.
“Piscine?”I nodded even more vigorously.
He kept his eyes on me.
I nodded so hard I’m surprised my neck didn’t snap andmy head fall to the floor.
I would like to say in my own defence that though I mayhave anthropomorphized the animals till they spoke fluentEnglish, the pheasants complaining in uppity British accents oftheir tea being cold and the baboons planning their bankrobbery getaway in
the flat, menacing tones of Americangangsters, the fancy was always conscious. I quite deliberatelydressed wild animals in tame costumes of my imagination. But Inever deluded myself as to the real nature of my playmates.
My poking nose had more sense than that. I don’t knowwhere Father got the idea that his youngest son was itching tostep into a cage with a ferocious carnivore. But
wherever thestrange worry came from – and Father was a worrier – hewas clearly determined to rid himself of it that very morning.
“I found a good book about archery.” Sam frowned. “Doing it is harder than reading about it, though. I get blisters.”
“Keep at it. We may need your bow on the Wall if the Others turn up some dark night.”
“Oh, I hope not.”
More guards stood outside the king’s solar. “No arms are allowed in His Grace’s presence, my lord,” their serjeant said. “I’ll need that sword. Your knives as well.” It would do no good to protest, Jon knew. He handed them his weaponry.
Within the solar the air was warm. Lady Melisandre was seated near the fire, her ruby glimmering against the pale skin of her throat. Ygritte had been kissed by fire; the red
priestess was fire, and her hair was blood and flame. Stannis stood behind the rough-hewn table where the Old Bear had once been wont to sit and take his meals. Covering the table was a large map of the north, painted on a ragged piece of hide.

patriarch, a lanky, hulking beast of 550 pounds,had been detained. As soon as we stepped in, he loped up tothe bars of his cage and set off a full-throated snarl, ears
flatagainst his skull and round eyes fixed on Babu. The soundwas so loud and fierce it seemed to shake the whole cathouse. My knees started quaking. I got close to
Father seemed to pause and steadyhimself. Only Babu was indifferent
to the outburst and to thesearing stare that bored into him like a drill. He had a testedtrust in iron bars. Mahisha started
pacing to and fro againstthe limits
of his cage.
Father turned to us. “What animal is this?” he bellowedabove Mahisha’s
“It’s a tiger,” Ravi and I answered in unison, obedientlypointing out the blindingly obvious.
“Are tigers dangerous?””Yes, Father, tigers are dangerous.””Tigers are very dangerous,” Father shouted. “I want you
tounderstand that you are never – under any circumstances –to touch a tiger, to pet
a tiger, to put your hands through thebars of a cage, even to get close to a cage. Is that clear?
Nothing, thought Jon Snow, the same as me.
Halfway up the winding steps, he came upon Samwell Tarly, headed down. “Are you coming from the king?” Jon asked him.
“Maester Aemon sent me with a letter.”
“I see.” Some lords trusted their maesters to read their letters and convey the contents, but Stannis insisted on breaking the seals himself. “How did Stannis take it?”
“Not happily, by his face.” Sam dropped his voice to a whisper. “I am not supposed to speak of it.”
“Then don’t.” Jon wondered which of his father’s bannermen had refused King Stannis homage this time. He was quick enough to spread the word when Karhold
declared for him.
How are you and
