Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.
It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所
after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of
上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.
The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419
ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad
上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”
Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419
After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.
上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led
by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419
Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje
上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.
“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level
sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信
New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.
Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien
t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.
More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o
f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.
The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult
ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s
ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE
SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.
Sino-US leaders’ 上海419品茶微信meeting on the sidelines of gathering in Japan expected to ease tensions
President Xi Jinping’s upcoming trip to Japan for the G20 Summit will reinforce international consensus on upholding multila

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co
unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.
The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead
of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def
ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.
In June last year, India announced retaliatory tariffs worth 230 million US dollars on 29 US goods. However, India h
as since been postponing implementation of the duties in a bid to address trade concerns.
The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

Chinese Preside上海419品茶微信nt Xi Jinping on Saturday urged Asian countries and their partners to join hands in
opening up new prospects for Asian security and development under new circumstances.
Addressing the fifth summit of the Conference on Interactio

embers to uphold the vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security, and explore a regio
nal security structure with Asian features to realize collective security for Asia.
Calling Asia one of the most dynamic and most promising regions in the world, Xi said Asian countries also face common chall

“About 2,000 tons of garbage is dumped at Ghazipur each day,” a Delhi municipal official said on condition of anonymity.
In 2018, a section of the hill collapsed in heavy rains killing two people. Dumping was banne
d after the deaths, but the measure lasted only a few days because authorities could not find an alternative.
Fires, sparked by methane gas coming from the dump, regularly break out and take days to extinguish.
Shambhavi Shukla, senior researcher at the Center for Science and Environment in New D
elhi, said methane belching from the garbage can become even more deadly when mixed with atmosphere.
Leachate, a black toxic liquid, oozes from the dump into a local canal.
To encourage them to move, Guizhou authorities have used a better schooling for their children as bait,” said Zhang Qing of Guizhou’s provincial Education Department.
“More than 130,000 children will be enrolled in the 1,600 preschool facilities and primary and secondary schools near their urban s
ettlements. Also, 333 nurseries and junior high schools will be built to enroll some 50,000 relocated children,” Zhang added.
To promote educational development and cultivate more high-quality teachers in the country’s central and w
estern regions, China launched a State-level training program for rural primary and middle school teachers in 2010.
Primary school teachers in Guizhou have joined the training at Beijing Normal University.
In September 2014, President Xi Jinping met with teachers from Guizhou who were r
eceiving training at Beijing Normal University. The group of teachers later wrote a letter to Xi.
In a letter of reply to the Guizhou teachers, Xi asked them to lead education reform in poor areas.

The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.
The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth
ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.
The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.
In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza
tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every
step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.
