The 20-year-old said she first learned about the history

The volunteer team-led by Wu Liangliang, a security guard who has gained online fame for his fluent self-taught En

glish-has also been part of the site’s efforts to provide a more personal management style, in addition to the city go

vernment’s introduction of various measures, including a mobile app, to help tourists.

Larry Goodrich, from Seattle, who has been traveling with his wife

Vanke responds to “cardboard doors”: high-end luxury houses

Last year, sales exceeded 600 billion yuan for the first time, but recently they have fallen into the whirlpool of public opinion because of the quality of fine decoration of rent.

It is reported that the owners of Vanke in Hangzhou responded to the media by purchasing their own houses. The propaganda in the e

arly stage was fine decoration and accommodation. As a result, all the jerry-built materials were simplified, especially the doors and floors were all made of paper.

In this regard, Vanke told the “Securities Daily” reporter that the relevant reports mentioned that “doors and floors are made of paper”, there

is a clear misunderstanding. The material mistaken for “cardboard” is actually “medium density fiberboard”. Medium density fibe

rboard is a kind of wood-based panels, which is widely used in indoor decoration and furniture industry at home and abroad. The products meet the industry standards (JG/T122-2000).

In fact, as early as 2012, it was reported that cardboard was used as cabinet and indoor door materials in the sixth phase of Vanke Fifth Garden

in Shenzhen, which sent 3000 yuan per square metre for fine decoration. As a result, a large area

of mildew appeared in the cabinet, wall paint falling off and other decoration and indoor air quality did not meet the standards.

In response to this, Vanke has announced that in the sixth phase of decoration of Shenzhen Fifth Garden, no part of the use of “cardboard”.

Vanke will be responsible for all the decoration quality problems found in the Fifth Garden, and will not hesitate to speak out and blame.

Vanke said that the use of cardboard as decoration materials is not technically feasible. At present, in the market decoration board, t

here is no one commonly known as “cardboard”. If customers or the public have any doubts, they can check with manufacturers, sell

ers, quality inspection agencies or experts in the paper industry, decoration and decoration materials industry.

“Medium density fiberboard, such as wood-based panel building materials, is not a small amount o

f application in the current housing decoration. The use of such materials is not necessarily to sa

ve costs, but more from the shape of home decoration products, application scenarios and other considerations. Some people in the industry said.

Vanke officials also said that the company’s high-end product line of residential, will al

so use MDF according to the situation, with this material can not simply be called “simple matching”.

Tianjin Quanjian United Arab Emirates Winter Training, the

As we all know, affected by the group incident, Tianjin Quanjian Football Club has been trusted to Tianjin Football Association and

renamed Tianjin Tianhai Club. At present, the transfer formalities of industry and Commerce have been completed. In the

new season, the club will take the new name of Tianjin Tianhai Zhengchao. However, at present,

the team emblem still retains the former Quanjian’s appearance and has not been replaced.

At present, the team is training in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, and coincidentally, the Asian Cup is also held in the United Arab

Emirates, so Tianjin team is likely to meet the football players occasionally. It is reported that the whole team of Tianjin is currently staying

at the Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, which is the most luxurious hotel in the world and the only eight-star

hotel in the world. This hotel is built according to the standards of the court and is very luxurious.

The Royal Palace Hotel is close to the presidential palace of the United Arab Emirates. Its location is very superior. It is one of the most n

oble places in the United Arab Emirates. Its hardware and software facilities are the top in the world, and its service is very high quality. A

s long as it has money, it can enjoy the treatment of the emperor. This hotel is not only welcomed

by local tyrants, but also by the world’s top teams, many teams will choose to stay here in winter training, Tianjin team is very favored here.

It is reported that the cheapest room in the hotel is about 3,500 yuan, and the most expensive room is about 65,000 yuan for a night. T

herefore, the winter training of Tianjin Team, the accommodation fee and other facilities, in a short period of 20 days, will definitely cost

more than one million yuan, and it is expected to reach about two million yuan, but the amount of money is acceptable for the p

revious health authorities. It’s a piece of cake, but the situation is different now. The trustee team can temporarily pay for such luxury expenses, and after that, we don’t know how long it will last.

There is no doubt that Tianjin football will encounter great difficulties in the new season, because the salary and bonus of players wil

l be a big problem in the future. There are many high-paid international players in the team, as well as big-name foreign aid. At present, in the C

hinese Super League, bonus is undoubtedly an important factor to stimulate players to strive hard. The new season lacks the in

centive of bonus, and they do not know their performance. How about it, and where the follow-up funds for the maintenance and operation of the team come from, is also a headache.

Guo Allen’s Girls Challenge Let Netizens Play Hi

In the 28th round of the League match, Liaoning Men’s Basketball Team won 119-87 away to the North Control Men’s Basketball Team, winning 17 consecutive wins.

However, the focus of people’s attention is not the competition itself, but the “CBA first net red” Guo Allen sent the classic “coquettish” expression pack.

When the fourth quarter just played 7 seconds, Guo Allen held the ball in the midline position, Li Xiaoxu

came to do the block, Shulong was blocked, Zhang Minghao destroyed the ball when he shot and grabbed it.

But the referee gave the ball to the North Control Men’s Basketball Team. At this time, Guo Allen quit. He ran excitedly from the left side of the

venue to Guo Shiqiang standing on the right side of the venue and asked Guo Shiqiang to apply for video playback.

At this time, the score was 100-74. Liaoning Men’s Basketball Team completely crushed the opponent. Guo Allen was so excited. Guo

Shiqiang was reluctant to play back the video at first, because it was still early to the end of the game, and he still led by a big score.

Perhaps it is reluctant to see his old uncle, Guo Allen also pulled up Guo Shiqiang’s sleeve, like a spoiled child, Guo Shiqiang could not laugh or cry.

He and Guo Shiqiang were just like two parents who wanted candy children. They were ready to watch the

video playback with laughter. Finally, the referee awarded the weight of the ball to Liaoning Men’s Basketball Team.

Although the game was over, Guo Allen’s “coquettish” facial pack became popular. After the game, he wrote

on his personal social platform: “This is not a funny thing. Don’t laugh.

To Jobs’s delight, Akers replied, “How would you like to help us?”

To Jobs’s delight, Akers replied, “How would you like to help us?” Within a few weeks Jobs showed up at IBM’s Armonk, New York, headquarters with his software engineer Bud Tribble. They put on a demo of NeXT, which impressed

the IBM engineers. Of particular significance was NeXTSTEP, the machine’s object-oriented operating system. “NeXTSTEP took care of a lot of trivial

That was too much for Jobs, at least for the time being. He cut off the clone discussions. And he began to cool toward IBM. The chill became reciprocal. When

the person who made the deal at IBM moved on, Jobs went to Armonk to meet his replacement, Jim Cannavino. They cleared the room and talked

one-on-one. Jobs demanded more money to keep the relationship going and to license newer versions of NeXTSTEP to IBM. Cannavino made no commitments,

and he subsequently stopped returning Jobs’s phone calls. The deal lapsed. NeXT got a bit of money for a licensing fee, but it never got the chance to change the world.

programming chores that slow down the software development process,” said Andrew Heller, the general manager of

IBM’s workstation unit, who was so impressed by Jobs that he named his newborn son Steve.

The negotiations lasted into 1988, with Jobs becoming prickly over tiny details. He would stalk out of meetings over

disagreements about colors or design, only to be calmed down by Tribble or Lewin. He didn’t seem to know

which frightened him more, IBM or Microsoft. In April Perot decided to play host for a mediating session at his Dallas

headquarters, and a deal was struck: IBM would license the current version of the NeXTSTEP software, and if the

managers liked it, they would use it on some of their workstations. IBM sent to Palo Alto a 125-page contract. Jobs tossed it down without reading it. “You

don’t get it,” he said as he walked out of the room. He demanded a simpler contract of only a few pages, which he got within a week.

Jobs wanted to keep the arrangement secret from Bill Gates until the big unveiling of the NeXT computer, scheduled for October. But IBM insisted on

being forthcoming. Gates was furious. He realized this could wean IBM off its dependence on Microsoft operating systems. “NeXTSTEP isn’t compatible with anything,” he raged to IBM executives.

At first Jobs seemed to have pulled off Gates’s worst nightmare. Other computer makers that were beholden to Microsoft’s

operating systems, most notably Compaq and Dell, came to ask Jobs for the right to clone NeXT and license NeXTSTEP. There were even

offers to pay a lot more

if NeXT would get

out of the hardware

business altogether.

“We are short of money and food, and the rich people of Luoyang could

Speaking to Dong Zhuo, Li Ru pointed out,

“We are short of money and food, and the rich people of Luoyang could be easily plundered. This is a good occasion to link them to the rebels and to confiscate their properties.”

Dong Zhuo sent five thousand troops out to plunder and slay. they captured many thousand wealthy householders and, having stuck flags on their heads saying they were Traitors and Rebels, drove them out of the city and put them to death. Their properties were all seized.

the task of driving forth the inhabitants, some millions, was given to two of Dong Zhuo’s commanders, Li Jue and Guo Si. The people were sent off in bands, each band between two parties of soldiers, who drove them torward Changan. Enormous numbers fell by the road side and died in the ditches, and the escort plundered the fugitives and defiled the women. A wail of sorrow arose to the very sky.

Dong Zhuo’s final orders as he left Capital Luoyang were to burn the whole city: Houses, palaces, temples, and everything were devoured by the flames. The capital became but a patch of scorched earth.

  Dong Zhuo sent Lu Bu to desecrate the tombs of the emperors and their consorts for the jewels therein, and the common soldiers took the occasion to dig up the graves of officials and plunder the cemeteries of the wealthy. The spoil of the city, gold and silver, pearls and silks, and beautiful ornaments, filled several thousand carts. With these and the persons of the Emperor and his household, Dong Zhuo moved off to the new capital in the first year of Inauguration of Tranquillity (AD 190)。

Luoyang being thus abandoned, the general of Dong Zhuo at River Si Pass, Zhao Cen, evacuated that post of vantage, which Sun Jian at once occupied. Liu Bei and his brothers took Tiger Trap Pass and the confederate lords advanced.

Sun Jian hastened to the late capital which was still in flames. When he arrived, dense smoke hung all over it and spread for miles around. No living thing, not a fowl, or a dog, or a human being, remained. Sun Jian told off his soldiers to extinguish the fires and set out camping places for the confederate lords.

Cao Cao went to see Yuan Shao and said,

“Dong Zhuo has gone west. We ought to follow and

attack his rear without loss of time.

Why do you remain inactive?”

“All our colleagues are worn out, and there is nothing to be gained by attack,” said Yuan Shao.

“If I could only find a master to serve,” said Lu Bu.

“If I could only find a master to serve,” said Lu Bu.

“the clever bird chooses the branch whereon to perch;

the wise servant selects the master to serve.

Seize the chance when it comes, for repentance ever comes too late.”

“Now you are in the government.

Who think you is really the bravest of all?”, asked Lu Bu.

“I despise the whole lot except Dong Zhuo.

He is one who respects wisdom and reveres scholarship;

he is discriminating in his rewards and punishments. Surely he is destined to be a really GREat man.”

  Lu Bu said, “I wish that I could serve him, but there is no way, I fear.”

  then Li Su produced his pearls and gold and the jeweled belt and laid them out before his host.

  “What is this? What does it mean?” said Lu Bu.

  “Send away the attendants,” requested Li Su. And he went on,

“Dong Zhuo has long respected your bravery and sent these by my hand. Red Hare was also from him.”

  “But, if he loves me like this, what can I do in return?”

Li Su said, “If a stupid fellow like me can be a general in the Imperial Tiger Army, it is impossible to say what honors await you.”

“I am sorry I can offer him no service worth mentioning.”

Li Su said, “there is one service you can do, and an extremely easy one to perform; but you would not render that.”

Lu Bu pondered long in silence, then he said, “I might slay Ding Yuan and bring over his soldiers to Dong Zhuo’s side. What think you of that?”

“If you would do that, there could be no GREater service. But such a thing must be done quickly.”

And Lu Bu promised his friend that he would do the deed and come over on the morrow.

So Li Su took his leave. That very night, at the second watch, Lu Bu entered, sword in hand, into his master’s tent. He found Ding Yuan reading by the light of a solitary candle.

Seeing who came in, Ding Yuan said,

“My son, what is afoot?”

“I am a bold hero,” said Lu Bu.

“Do not think I am willing to be a son of yours!”

“Why this change, Lu Bu?”

Wang Changling
IN HER QUIET WINDOW
Too young to have learned what sorrow means,
Attired for spring, she climbs to her high chamber….
The new green of the street-willows is wounding her heart —
Just for a title she sent him to war.


Wang Changling
A SONG OF THE SPRING PALACE
Last night, while a gust blew peach-petals open
And the moon shone high on the Palace Beyond Time,
The Emperor gave Pingyang, for her dancing,
Brocades against the cold spring-wind.


Wang Han
A SONG OF LIANGZHOU
They sing, they drain their cups of jade,
They strum on horseback their guitars.
…Why laugh when they fall asleep drunk on the sand ? —
How many soldiers ever come home?


Li Bai
A FAREWELL TO MENG HAORAN
ON HIS WAY TO YANGZHOU
You have left me behind, old friend, at the Yellow Crane Terrace,
On your way to visit Yangzhou in the misty month of flowers;
Your sail, a single shadow, becomes one with the blue sky,
Till now I see only the river, on its way to heaven.


Li Bai
THROUGH THE YANGZI GORGES
From the walls of Baidi high in the coloured dawn
To Jiangling by night-fall is three hundred miles,
Yet monkeys are still calling on both banks behind me
To my boat these ten thousand mountains away.


Cen Can
ON MEETING A MESSENGER TO THE CAPITAL
It’s a long way home, a long way east.
I am old and my sleeve is wet with tears.
We meet on horseback. I have no means of writing.
Tell them three words: “He is safe.”


Du Fu
ON MEETING LI GUINIAN DOWN THE RIVER
I met you often when you were visiting princes
And when you were playing in noblemen’s halls.
…Spring passes…. Far down the river now,
I find you alone under falling petals.


Wei Yingwu
AT CHUZHOU ON THE WESTERN STREAM
Where tender grasses rim the stream
And deep boughs trill with mango-birds,
On the spring flood of last night’s rain
The ferry-boat moves as though someone were poling.


Zhang Ji
A NIGHT-MOORING NEAR MAPLE BRIDGE
While I watch the moon go down, a crow caws through the frost;
Under the shadows of maple-trees a fisherman moves with his torch;
And I hear, from beyond Suzhou, from the temple on Cold Mountain,
Ringing for me, here in my boat, the midnight bell.
