The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a

reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

 上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

Seeing trains rushing by with plenty of unused space ha

has long been a sore point for freight train operators and managers, because low utiliza

tion of the cargo capacity raises running costs and makes the service less appealing to potential customers.上海千花坊女神会所

“The system collects and incorporates the operational information of all the freight trains involv

ed in the China Express Railway into one holistic platform,” Ma said.上海千花坊

The inland port cooperates with major rail service providers and customs in Kazakhstan, Russia and Germany, as well as major ticket-booking portals for ferries and railways across large parts of Europe.上海千花坊

“At present, no other trade hub in China is able to amass such a huge trove of data as we do with our system,” Ma said.

According to the port area authorities, during a recent trial of the system freight trains r

eturning from the West were carrying goods at an average 80 percent of their full capacity.上海千花坊女神会所

Between 2016 and the middle of this month, more than 2,400 trains had hauled goods acro

ss the port area, via about 20 routes of the China Express Railway, and made their way to 25 cities in 18 countries.

上海千花坊In addition to improving the efficiency and connectivity of the China Railway Ser

vice, the port area is also expected to provide a major boost for the regional economy.

One of the most popular commodities heading west from Xinjiang is a tomato-based sauce, accord上海千花坊女神会所

ing to Zheng Weiguo, vice-manager of Urumqi International Land Port Multimodal Transport Co.

“Last year, about 50,000 metric tons of the tomato-based sauce were exported to Russia alone,” he said. Behi上海千花坊女神会所

nd him, heavy trucks loaded with multicolored containers were revving up to transfer goods onto an approaching freight train.

It can take as long as 50 days for the sauce to reach its farthest destination, Naples in Italy, by sea, setting off from Tianjin Port in North China.

“The express train services have cut the journey time to about 12 days, allowing Chinese agricultu

ral goods to overtake their global competitors,” said Liu Shaohua, deputy director of the port area.

“We have already received positive feedback from wholesale buyers overseas, who have praised the rail service for its speed and low rate of da

mage (to goods). In the future, we plan to further boost confidence in products made in Xinjiang, and expand avenues fo

r overseas sales through the real-time monitoring system and the sophisticated freight rail network.”

According to Yang Yonghong, head of China Railway Uru

umqi Group’s Alataw Pass Station, the rapid inspection and clearan

c上海会所品茶微信e services for China Railway Express freight trains have led to a rise in imports.

He was speaking at an indoor transfer station where containers from a train that had arrived fr

om Poland (via Kazakhstan) were being loaded onto a train bound for Chongqing. T

he change was necessary because the track gauge in Kazakhstan is wider than in China.上海会所

According to Yang, the indoor transfer station, the largest in Asia, can handle 15 train

s a day. Because more trains are expected to pass through the port in the future, the company plans上海会所品茶微信

to transform an outdoor transfer station into an indoor facility so the procedure won’t be affected by strong winds. The 80 Porsche cars were just one of the cargoes being transferred that day.

“When the China Railway Express was launched, the trains were heavily loaded on their outbound journeys, but most of the containers were empty when they returned. Now, about 70 percent of trains returning to China are also heavily loaded. The change is very obvious,” he said.上海会所

According to the Alataw Pass Customs, from January to May, only about 30 percent of the containers on China Railway Expre

ss trains returning from Europe were empty, a fall of more than 9 percent year-on-year.

上海会所品茶微信Yang said, “As many companies have benefited from the cheaper, but more efficient, service p

rovided by the China Railway Express service, I believe more and more containers will be filled on the trains’ return journeys.”

The development of the Alataw Pass has also boosted the development of Alashankou, which is home to just 14,000 residents.

“Many businesses have noted the potential of the land port and the city, so they have set up branches and factories here. It’s h上海会所

ard to imagine that before 1992 the Alataw Pass was nothing but the Gobi Desert and strong winds,” Di, the Party chief, said.

For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s

上海乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.上海乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

end – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.
