Zhao Cong, vice-president and the principal pipa player of China N
ational Traditional Orchestra, spent months arranging the Chinese musical piece Full Blo
om into a duet for the pipa and the Russian balalaika, both plucked instruments iconic of their countries.
“The piece includes a section of antiphonal music between the pipa and balalaika, which can clearly present the bea
uty of different folk instruments through contrast, and also highlight the cooperation between them,” Zhao said.
To celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival, which falls on June 7, the fifth d
ay of the fifth lunar month on the traditional Chinese calendar, foreign students from the C
hinese Culture and Literature School at Nankai University learned to make zongzi, or pyramid-shaped glu
tinous rice dumplings wrapped in reed leaves, and weave five-color strings to appreciate Chinese culture on June 3.
Students learned about the festival and its origins, as well as dragon b
oat racing, hanging calamus and wormwood, and drinking realgar wine.
The school has more than 700 foreign students

s a competitive soccer player. He paid former Yale women’s soccer coach Rudolph Mered
ith $400,000 to pass Guo off as a recruited player, despite Guo never having played soccer competitively.
Guo has since been expelled by Yale. Meredith resigned and pleaded guilty to federal fraud-related charges.
Neither the Guos nor the Zhaos have been charged in the investigation, which was
made public in March. Federal prosecutors have charged 50 people in six states, inc
luding 33 parents who allegedly paid a total of $25 million to Singer between 2011 and February this year.
The typical sum ranges from $15,000 to $75,000 per child for rigged college entrance exams, and $100,00
0 to $400,000 per child for what Singer called his “side door” to admission-guaranteed access to top institutions. M
ost international students gain admission through the “front door”-doing it on their own.
In court, Singer admitted using his charity, the Key Worldwide Foundation, to collect payments from parents and bribin
g coaches and others. He has pleaded guilty to racketeering and other charges and is awaiting sentencing.
Parents who have pleaded guilty or agreed to do so include the preside
nt of a California real estate company and his wife, and the actress Felicity Huffman.
set in Shanghai in the 1930s starring Chow Yunfat, has so far been the most time-consuming restoration work, but Jiang says it’s worth it.
“George Lucas spent many years restoring old Star Wars films he made himself,” Jiang says
. “It’s almost like a remake. We’re also looking to create a classic Chinese production, which needs just as much of our energy.”
Speaking of the future, Pei says there is no end to their work. “People get u
sed to watching TV productions shot in 4K resolution today. However, once 8K be
comes common, viewers might consider 4K shows ‘unwatchable’ again. Today’s work will still need restoration one day.”
