“Over the past 5,000 years, history has recorded the rise and fall of kingd
oms and dynasties. One hundred and fifty years ago, the West conquered the world but?娱乐地图女神会所
failed to conquer the hearts of Chinese. Now, Uncle Sam is seeking unilateralism by abandoning world ord
?娱乐地图女神会所ers since World War II, but they encountered resistance all over the world, especially from China,” said Wang Yao
heng, one of 12 contestants in the annual English Speech Contest held by the College of Liberal Arts & Law of Da
lian Minzu University on June 28. He made no secret of his admiration of Chinese culture.?娱乐地图女神会所
“After being informed of the speech contest, I was very excited about it. As a Chinese youth, I long for
an opportunity to express my love for the culture of our motherland. In addition, this is also a figh?娱乐地图
t back to those who turn a deaf ear to both affairs at home and abroad. I want to tell them that we college students are no
t a “spoiled generation, we are not the kind of know-nothing-but-pleasure” generation, Wang said.?娱乐地图女神会所
The contestants were ethnically diverse, and expressed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride
?娱乐地图for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past several decades. The recognition o
f Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic groups reache
d a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US.?娱乐地图
However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.
Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used t?娱乐地图女神会所
o be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.
Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue?娱乐地图
l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lo
nger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age.?娱乐地图女神会所
Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era an
d appealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke
ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.
Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western attitude in C
hina. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and digest
their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.
Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys
from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所
The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.
娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos
ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.
Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所
The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely
娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.
Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图
splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.
娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are
very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图
an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.
娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do
ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur
inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di
fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图
“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.
Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所
dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.
The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图
de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie
娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.
In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit
h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.
roductivity in the service sector, which is an important thing that China is focusing on to stabilize economic growth,” Zhu said.
Chen Yulu, a vice-governor of the PBOC, also supported a “full-scale” opening of the financial sector. In the future, foreign invest
ors are welcome to conduct all forms of financial business in China, excepting those being named on a neg
ative list, and authorities are researching a new regulatory system, Chen said at the forum on Saturday.
Li Daokui, director of the Academic Center for Chinese Economic Practice and Thinking at Tsing
hua University, said China “should be more confident” in accelerating opening-up of its financial sec
tor, which will help global investors seize numerous opportunities in the Chinese market.
Domestic financial institutions are now capable of engaging in fiercer competition with global peers as their serv
ice abilities in many aspects, such as banking and insurance, have improved a lot over the past years, Li said.
popular destinations for overseas study, accounting for 18 percent and 1
6 percent respectively, followed by Hong Kong, Germany and Japan, the report found.
The report was based on a survey conducted by Vision Overseas Consulting Co, a subsidiary of New Oriental Education and Technolo
gy Group and Kantar Millward Brown in January and February. The survey covered 6,228 students who plan to go to school ove
rseas or have returned to China after graduation, and their parents. It is the fifth consecutive year the report was released.
Sun Tao, president of Vision Overseas Consulting Co, said: “More students chose to go to the UK for overseas study b
ecause of its high-quality higher education institutions and relatively lower costs compared with the US.”
Many UK universities now offer one-year master’s program, which can
greatly decrease the students’ cost, he said, adding that the UK government has also im
