Xu Xiaolei, chief bra 亚搏官网后花园for China Youth Tr

Travel Service, said that in the past, the tourism industry placed the emp

hasis on daytime activities and “undervalued” nighttime operations. But consumers are now d?亚搏官网后花园

emanding high-quality nighttime activities, with nearly half of the company’

?亚搏官网后花园女神会所s customers asking for such itineraries to be arranged, whether they are traveling in China or abroad.

“I think it is especially good that the Chinese authorities have rolled out measures t

o boost after-dusk activities, which is a response to people demanding higher-quality lives,” he said.?亚搏官网后花园

Xu added that Chinese cities are “too similar” in promoting nighttime act

ivities. Most of the time, night travel is still about tasting local food in “snack streets”.

?亚搏官网后花园”Every city should think about developing unique tourism resources that would enable it to stand o

ut from others,” he said. “Many people the world over would like to see a Broadway musical while visiting New

York, but performances in China are mostly high-priced and out of reach for most.”

?亚搏官网后花园女神会所The historic water town of Wuzhen has been transformed by Xu’s company from a shabby d

estination, with 30 to 40 percent of consumption now taking place at night, Xu said.

“We defined Wuzhen as a historic cultural town, so we d?亚搏官网后花园

dn’t use bright-colored lights at night. Most of the lights we use ar

e pale yellow, to create an atmosphere to make people feel warm and at home,” he said.

?亚搏官网后花园”女神会所But lighting up the town is not enough. We also need to off

er good content to tourists. In Wuzhen, tourists can sit on wooden boats at

night, listening to the sound of the oars hitting the water under the lights. They can also ex?亚搏官网后花园

perience a range of cultural activities, including the Wuzhen Theater Festival.”

Xu said most shops in Wuzhen close at about 11pm, so tourists sp

?亚搏官网后花园女神会所ending the night in town can have a good sleep, but there a

re bars, karaoke lounges and other entertainment venues that remain open until later.

亚搏官网后花园A Shantou University freshman trekked more than 1,300 kilometers from her hometow

Nineteen-year old Lu Yue, together with her father and younger sister, arrived at Shantou University on Wednesday mo

rning after a 26 day-long trek. She will study marketing at the university’s School of Business.

The trek is actually the result of an agreement between Lu Yue and her father, Lu Qingfeng. Before this year’s coll亚搏官网后花园女神会所

ege entrance exam, Lu Qingfeng proposed to his daughter that if she got admitted to a university, wherever it was, they

亚搏官网后花园would trek to the university. Lu Yue agreed and later her younger sister decided to join them.

A workout enthusiast himself, Lu Qingfeng pays much attent

ion to his daughters’ physical exercise. He has been running for nearly 10 years.亚搏官网后花园女神会所

Regular exercise gives his daughters stronger bodies than their peers, as well as their sunny and optimistic dispositions.

Lu Qingfeng planned a “red route” for their trek, featuring visits to sit亚搏官网后花园

es with a revolutionary legacy, including Yiyang Martyrs’ Memorial Park, the former ho

mes of Mao Zedong, Peng Dehuai and Liu Shaoqi, Hengshan Mountain and Jinggang Mountain.亚搏官网后花园女神会所

To cultivate Lu Yue’s ability to deal with people and things, Lu Qing

亚搏官网后花园feng had Lu Ye make arrangements for meals and lodging throughout their travel.

The trio walked about 30 km on average per day. Lu Yue’s skin sunt

anned when she finally reached their destination, but she didn’t seem to care.亚搏官网后花园女神会所

“The journey has taught me many things that cannot be learned from books an

d made me more independent. I think this is the true meaning of the trek,” she said.

According to park autho亚搏官网后花园experts and professi

ionals evaluated the night zoo project and believed that the current operation could guarantee the health and safety of anim

亚搏官网后花园als. The park also selected suitable animals for display. For example, they only picked seven out of nine species from

the monkey section as they are more active during night. Also, the giant panda exhibition area will not open at night.亚搏官网后花园女神会所

“We have adjusted the light system for the night zoo, with brighter lighting on the roads, water areas, and toilets to secure

亚搏官网后花园visitors’ safety while using diffuse lights to simulate a natural moonlight effect in the animals’ living areas,” Zhong added.

“I came to the night zoo because of curiosity about the animals’ behavior during the

nighttime,” said Liu Yufei, a 20-year-old student who visited the night zoo on opening day.亚搏官网后花园女神会所

“Since I have class in the daytime, the night zoo provides me a new way to spend the

亚搏官网后花园night. There are also fewer tourists at night, and the summer weather is comfortable,” Liu said.

“But the transportation is an issue,” she added.

The night zoo opened six animal-themed exhibition areas, three featu

red performances, animal-themed restaurants, and souvenirs stores.亚搏官网后花园

It also launched the “Night Animal Tour” and animal shows at Sea Lion Theater and International Circus Theater.

Zhang Caiyun, another tourist who brought her 6-year-old son to the zoo, said: “the colorful lights and the animal tou亚搏官网后花园女神会所

r are more attractive than the daytime activities and I don’t have to worry about my son getting sunburned at night.”

“The closing of the drive-through area is the only regret. It will be a u亚搏官网后花园

nique experience to visit rare animals through the dark by tour bus,” Zhang said.

Having prepared for about three years for the night project, the park will evaluate its operation to adjust the layout of the亚搏官网后花园女神会所

animals, types of exhibitions, and the night facilities after operating for a while, according to park authorities.

On the same day that the zoo opened, the city also issued a list of cultural and tourist sites that are opening at night. More

than 100 spots were listed, according to Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism.

hina’s first box-o亚搏官网后花园女神会所 ffice decline in eight years has prompted b

rainstorming among industry insiders at an ongoing movie festival, Xu Fan reports.

China’s January-to-May box-office revenue has declined for the first time since 2011.

This cause for concern among industry insiders has become a ma

jor topic of discussion at the ongoing 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival.

Statistics from the country’s top film regulator show that China’s 64,510 screens had grosse

d 27 billion yuan ($3.9 billion) as of May 31, down 5.1 percent year-on-year, according to China Film News.

A report from box-office tracker Maoyan released during the fes

tival says the decline may be due to a drop in the number of the

atergoers. From January to May, cinemas on the mainland registered 688

million admissions, plummeting 13.5 percent from 796 million admissions in the same period in 2018.

FBI Agent Anthony Manganaro testified during the second day of the trial that Christensen’s

In a video of the FBI agent and campus police officer Eric Stiver

“Maybe I’m getting my days mixed up,” said Christensen, after St

He also insisted he had a hard time “telling Asian people apart” whe

angmen platform, a provider of online tutorials, asses

Online courses have increased public access to q亚搏官网后花园女神会所uality educational resources, b

ut unlike traditional classrooms, the teachers cannot directly monitor and interact with the

ir students when teaching online, which can lead to disengaged students and poor feedback.

To resolve these issues, three students from Tsinghua and the University of Tsukuba in Japan

have created an AI-based model that can be integrated into online teaching platforms to analyze f

acial expressions and “bullet screens”, real-time viewers’ comments on the screen.

The model then crunches the data and creates a line graph that tells the teacher exactly when and what p

arts of the lesson students find most interesting or difficult. The project won third prize at th

e 2018 International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing hosted by Tsinghua.

“This empowers teachers to gain objective, timely and multifaceted insights into

their students’ state of learning, which can be used to assess and improve their lessons,” said Qie Nan, an ind

ustrial engineering doctoral candidate at Tsinghua and one of the people behind the project.

uffered a car accident on her way to attend a job interview a month ago.

Cheng Hao said her sister’s life was saved, but her head, neck and chest must be fixed with brackets, and she cannot feel

anything below her chest. She can only lift her hands and arms a little, and only three fingers out of 10 can move.

“She wants to finish her oral defense of master’s thesis and get a job, like a normal student,” Cheng Hao said.

To fulfill her desire, professors at the university made a decision to hold a special oral defense for Cheng Yanfang.
