Do you know the variety and history of Lantern Festival in Shanghai today?

Today is the Lantern Festival. Eating "Yuanxiao" on the Lantern Festival is a custom of China people. The round glutinous rice dumplings symbolize happiness and reunion, and are entrusted with people’s good wishes for the new year. Shanghai’s "Lantern Festival" is divided into northern style, Ningbo style, Soviet style, Guangdong style and so on. There are also many other varieties, such as fermented rice balls, pigeon egg rice balls, "Benbang Tangtuan" and so on. In addition, there are "dry" cooking and "dry" eating methods such as rolling sand balls and dry frying. Let’s get to know it together! See ↓

There are "wet" and "dry"

Various wrapping methods and eating methods of dumplings

"Yuanxiao" is also called Tangyuan, also known as Tangtuan. Its name is different, and there are various schools of wrapping and eating. In modern times, Shanghai was the earliest trading port in China, and people from all over the world brought different kinds of dumplings to Shanghai.

The Shanghai Archives keeps a manuscript of Lantern Festival Words "Yuanxiao" written by an old Shanghai gourmet, which was written by Ms. Shi Jingzhen, an old Shanghai businessman. In her account, the "Lantern Festival" in Shanghai is divided into northern style, Ningbo style, Soviet style, Cantonese style and so on.

The North-style "Yuanxiao" is made by rolling dried glutinous rice flour into a round ball the size of a walnut, and its stuffing is made by mixing walnut meat, melon seeds, green plums and red melons with cooked lard, sugar and flour.

The Ningbo-style Yuanxiao, commonly known as Ningbo Tangtuan, is made of soaked glutinous rice flour with lard bean paste or lard ginkgo in the middle. It is smooth, soft and sweet when cooked and has a unique flavor.

Although the dumplings we eat now are sweet and salty, the "Yuanxiao" in Shi Jingzhen’s article is all the same color "sweet mouth", which is probably her personal preference, but it also conforms to the general public’s impression of Jiangnan people.

The Northern Lantern Festival rolled in the basket. Sometimes "Yuanxiao" refers to the northern Yuanxiao, and "Tangtuan" refers to the southern Yuanxiao.

In fact, there are many other varieties of Yuanxiao in Shanghai.

For example, the glutinous rice from Jintan, which has a history of more than 100 years, is exquisite. The quality of the glutinous rice is relatively condensed, and the glutinous rice is brewed by itself, which is sweet but not sour. The glutinous rice is rich and sweet, and its taste is beautiful, which is welcomed by customers. If every long summer Festival, there will be more customers ".

Glutinous Rice Balls in Fermented Rice Wine

Another example is the pigeon egg dumplings, which were originally put in baskets by ingenious vendors and sold in various tea houses in the Chenghuang Temple in the old city. They are small and exquisite, shaped like pigeon eggs, soft, sweet and cool, and the sugar stuffing in the dumplings is full of sugar water, which does not condense after cold.

In fact, there is also a "native" "Yuanxiao" in Shanghai, which is the so-called "Benbang Tangtuan" (also known as Yuanzi and Tuanzi). Most of the "Benbang dumplings" are stuffed with vegetables and meat, and their size is bigger than that of Ningbo dumplings. Four diners who have a smaller appetite will "help the wall out". Nowadays, such dumpling shops can be found in Qibao, Xinchang and other ancient towns in the suburbs of Shanghai, and the business is also good.

Benbang dumplings (also known as dumplings and dumplings)

As for the way to eat dumplings, "they are usually cooked in boiling water. The cooked dumplings taste glutinous and firm, and a bag of sugar soup at the entrance is very sweet." However, the pigeon egg dumplings can be cooked in boiling water and cooled before eating. In the era when there is no refrigerator, a small bowl of pigeon egg dumplings is a good cold food for relieving summer heat.

In addition to these "wet" practices and eating methods, "Yuanxiao" also has "dry" cooking and "dry" eating.

The famous point of grinding sand circles is the representative of "doing". It filters out the water from the cooked dumplings, rolls on a layer of bean paste powder, and can be eaten hot or cold. It is delicious and convenient to carry, and is deeply loved by people. The bean paste powder on the sand ball. To make it, first-class red beans should be selected, washed and boiled to crisp, mashed and dried, ground into fine powder, fried in a pot until it is slightly burnt, and then taken out of the pot when the beans smell, and finally screened with a fine sieve. The prepared bean paste powder is brownish yellow, wrapped in "Yuanxiao", which is lovely and appetizing, and has the same effect as the traditional snack "donkey rolling" in northern China.

Besides "grinding sand", "Yuanxiao" can also be fried dry. Shi Jingzhen recalled that when she was a child, every Lantern Festival, her mother would dry-fry dumplings cooked in boiling water. Watching my mother pour Yuanxiao into a cooked oil pan, stirring and pressing it, she was only as fat as a golden ball, which made her drool. Ask mom to beg for one to eat first, bite it down, and the sugar water is so hot that I want to cry, but I can’t bear to spit out the sweet, fragrant and oily sugar juice.

Fried dumplings

It has a long history and has its own merits.

Shanghai de tangtuan famous store

Most of the traditional Chinese dim sum snacks in old Shanghai are concentrated in the old town hall, especially in the Chenghuang Temple area. It can be said that it was also the "top flow" gathering place of Shanghai dim sum snack industry.

Chenghuangmiao Lantern Festival

For example, the old Tongchun Dim Sum Shop and the old Songsheng Dim Sum Shop located at No.45 and No.46, Yimiao Road, Chenghuangmiao (now Yuyuan Road, Chenghuangmiao) are both famous for their fermented dumplings and dumplings. In particular, "Old Tung Chun" was founded in 1860 and moved to Chenghuang Temple around 1925. Although it is only a small shop with more than a dozen tables, its pork dumplings with sand and fresh meat dumplings are very famous in old Shanghai.

Founded in 1857, "Lao Songsheng" has a longer history. It was founded by a Chongming named Yu. I don’t know if it was made of Chongming wine. Its wine dumplings are very delicious and often attract customers to queue up to buy them. These two small shops are neighbors and deal in the same kind of food, but they don’t feel like "peers are enemies" at all, and get along well with each other.

The pigeon egg is the most famous restaurant in Gu Shunxing, No.98 Yimiao Road, Chenghuangmiao. "Gu Shunxing" got its name from people. According to legend, in the 1920s and 1930s, a Ningbo man named Gu Shunxing carried a food basket every day to sell homemade pigeon balls in the tea houses of Chenghuang Temple. Gu Jia’s pigeon egg dumplings can be eaten cold without lard, which is more suitable for summer consumption. Over time, they have become famous and opened stores. After liberation, the public-private partnership, perhaps because of the relatively large scale, both "Lao Tongchun" and "Lao Songsheng" reported to "Gu Shunxing" for unified economic accounting, which was also regarded as the "shoulders" of the tangtuan community in the Chenghuang Temple.

In 1963, Gu Shunxing’s restaurant filled in the retail enterprise registration card, and there was no trace of the pigeon egg in the main products (Shanghai Archives Collection).

Speaking of "Lantern Festival" in Shanghai, "Qiaojiazha" and "Meixin" are always unavoidable. Qiaojiazha is also a "century-old shop", which was founded in 1909. It was originally named as "Yongmaochang Tangtuan Store". Because it was opened at the intersection of Qiaojiazha and Ninghe in the old city, the residents nearby called it "Qiaojiazha", and later simply took "Qiaojiazha" as the font size. "Qiaojiazha" is famous for all kinds of Ningbo dumplings and sand balls. The dumplings produced by its family are diverse in variety, exquisite in materials and fine in operation, characterized by fine powder, thin skin and many fillings, and delicious in taste.

Impression of Qiaojiazha (works by Wang Zhenkun)

Meixin Dim Sum Restaurant, located at No.105, North Shaanxi Road, is another time-honored brand in Shanghai famous for dumplings. It was founded in 1943, and has never moved its store since its opening. It is also famous for its Ning-style lard dumplings and wine-brewed dumplings.

Jin Tian de mei Xin dessert shop

There is another phenomenon in the dumpling circle of old Shanghai, that is, there are many font sizes with the same name. For example, during the Anti-Japanese War, "Qiaojiazha" appeared at the intersection of Ximen Road in the old nanshi and Huaihai Road in the western area, and the latter moved to Xiangyang South Road soon. Everyone claimed to be "authentic" and also featured dim sum such as dumplings. Another example is "Qiaojiazha", formerly known as "Yongmaochang". During the Anti-Japanese War, a master named Li Yigao opened a dumpling shop with the same name on Fangbang Road in Nanshi. At the intersection of Huaihai Road and Chongqing, there is also the "Yongmaochang" dim sum shop opened by Li Fukui, which also features dumplings.

Time flies, and there are many changes in the area of Chenghuang Temple, which once gathered various kinds of dumpling shops. Until the sixties and seventies of the last century, "Gu Shunxing" and "Old Tung Chun" all enjoyed a prosperous business. Now, "Gu Shunxing" has disappeared, and the brand "Laotongchun" has entered Songyunlou, but it is no longer the dumpling but the lard residue wonton that belongs to it. After many relocations, "Lao Songsheng" has now become "Dexing Restaurant (Yuyuan Store)".

Instead, it was Ningbo Tangtuan Store on the bank of Jiuqu Bridge. In the memory of Shen Jialu, a well-known gourmet in Shanghai, it was originally another "osmanthus hall" famous for selling pigeon eggs and dumplings. The business of Ningbo Tangtuan Store is booming, and the customers are full. The "Osmanthus Hall" has merged with Songyun Building, becoming one of the few stores with pigeon eggs and dumplings for sale.

The bustling crowd in front of Ningbo Tangtuan Store in Chenghuang Temple.

Qiaojiazha, which was originally famous for dumplings, has opened many branches, but dumplings are no longer its main product. "Meixin" still sticks to the tradition silently in the original site. Although it also makes other snacks, dumplings are always the first products sold out.

Today’s Shanghainese can easily taste delicious food from all over the country and all over the world in the streets and lanes. Besides dumplings, people have more and more choices for eating. But on the Lantern Festival, it is still the dream of many people to have a bowl of warm "Yuanxiao". It contains more than an unforgettable taste when I was there …

Sweet and waxy dumplings are entrusted with people’s beautiful expectations for the new year.

Play the villain and then the policeman! After Under the Sun, Peng Guanying took on a new play. Do you think it will be a play?

In Under the Sun, Feng Xiaosheng finally won a short victory, forcing Liang Yuze to go abroad and live a self-righteous and beautiful life with Ke Ying. Even, Ke Ying invited Feng Xiaosheng to have dinner together, and their relationship made progress in stages.

Ke Ying fed Feng Xiaosheng steak, and then withdrew it when he was about to get into the mouth. Feng Xiaosheng forcibly took her arm and ate the steak. The expression of the two people’s confrontation exposed the man’s possessiveness completely.

This flowing expressive force is attributed to the actor’s acting skills: I just saw A Ying’s surprise when she was feeding, and the meat was slowly handed to her mouth to show a spoiled smile. Ke Ying took back her hand and suddenly froze, and then she was fierce and overbearing when she grabbed her hand and ate it. There was nothing wrong with Peng Guanying. Taking this drama is undoubtedly the most correct choice he has made.

"Under the Sun" has aroused a thousand waves since it first announced that the novel was made into a film and television. For no other reason, the original novel "Things in the Palm" describes that the university lecturer He Yan still tries to get rid of the clutches after being imprisoned by the male host Fu Shenxing. In order to highlight the tense relationship between men and women, there are many explicit and cruel pictures. However, it is definitely impossible to film and television all the contents, so everyone’s attitude towards TV dramas is both tense and contradictory.

Sure enough, after the TV series was broadcast, a lot of content was added and deleted in order to be more practical, and even the male master was changed into a male two. But what hasn’t changed is that the role played by Peng Guanying is still an object of resentment.

But Peng Guanying’s acting didn’t disappoint everyone. Whether it is Shen Shijie’s diabolical cruelty in the early stage or the cruel cunning of Feng Xiao’s voice in the later stage, Peng Guanying interprets it perfectly and impeccably.

Theoretically speaking, Peng Guanying is a newcomer to film and television, but unfortunately he is a newcomer of great age.

Before, everyone could only think of Princess Lanling, which co-starred with Baby Zhang a few years ago. Although his acting skills were also praised in the play, there was no follow-up resources, and he seemed to disappear from the audience’s field of vision soon.

After that, when I think of him, I can only remember that he and Zhu Yilong, who have exploded in recent years, are close friends, and Peng Meimei and Zhu Meili are active in each other’s social platforms.

However, with the online drama "The Soul of the Town", Zhu Yilong made numerous rounds, followed by other works, and soon gained a firm foothold. And "Peng Beauty" is still an invisible man.

In 2020, Zhu Yilong and Liu Shishi’s new drama "Dear Yourself" landed in iQiyi, in which Peng Guanying played love rat, who betrayed his wife. After a long time, Peng Guanying’s acting remained at a certain level, and playing against Adi often made people hate it. I wish he would disappear immediately.

Later, when he lost his way and asked his wife to forgive him, his eyes were tearful, and the audience shouted, so pitiful that I even wanted to forgive him.

Peng Guanying finally became famous.

With the update of "Under the Sun" episode by episode, Feng Xiaosheng’s temperament is also slowly changing, from revenge on Ke Ying at the beginning to hopelessly falling in love with her later, all of which are manifested in the actor’s smiles, which also tests the actor’s acting skills.

But Peng Guanying has performed well from the beginning, and he is bound to play the role well from beginning to end.

Years ago, Peng Guanying’s new play "Backlight Man" started, with Zhang Yujian as his partner, both of whom played the role of police.

The online drama "Backlight" is adapted from the novel "In the Dark" by writer Jin Shichai, which mainly tells the story of undercover policeman Xie Lanshan and portrait expert Shen Liufei fighting criminals together.

Xie Lanshan, played by Peng Guanying, and Shen Liufei, played by Zhang Yujian, met at the police academy. They established a strong affection and vowed to become excellent anti-drug policemen.

Among the posters issued at present, this group of quasi-anti-drug policemen are determined, and they are willing to hide in the dark to protect the light.

Perhaps the audience is still immersed in the vicious villain in Under the Sun, but Peng Guanying has turned over and become a policeman. With his acting skills, he is bound to perform a completely different image from Feng Xiaosheng and look forward to his new works. Wen/Hua Su

Lang Ping returned to his alma mater to reminisce about his student days, and the "iron hammer" kicked off the volleyball teenager in Chaoyang District.

On the afternoon of June 12th, Beijing Chen Jinglun Middle School was very lively. Lang Ping, an outstanding alumnus of the school, returned to her alma mater and recalled her unforgettable school days with her primary school brothers and sisters. On the same day, the special office of "Olympic Games Chaoyang" volleyball campus was unveiled, and the volleyball league of "Lang Ping Class" and "Lang Ping Cup" of Chen Jinglun Middle School was announced.
"Chaoyang cannon" became attached to volleyball at school.
For the children of Chen Jinglun Middle School, today is definitely a memorable day, because Lang Ping, as their senior, will return to his alma mater, which makes the children extremely excited. They ask each other, "Has the senior arrived?" "Will Director Lang come to see us play volleyball?" The children discussed excitedly, and they also prepared flowers and songs to welcome Lang Ping. At two o’clock in the afternoon, Lang Ping walked to the school auditorium amid the cheers of teachers and students. There were warm cheers on campus, and Lang Ping waved to the children and teachers happily.

Lang Ping, who returned to her alma mater, was very relaxed, and it was hard to hide her excitement when she recalled the story with her alma mater. She said, "I am very excited and excited to return to my alma mater today. I am proud of my alma mater, and this is where my dream began. I am here to thank my physical education teacher and thank Teacher Meng. "
As a teenager, Lang Ping was a junior high school student in Chaoyang Middle School (predecessor of Chen Jinglun Middle School). She recalled: "My home is very close to school, and I am very excited to go to school every day, because every classmate will run and play basketball on the playground during recess. I am particularly looking forward to joining the school sports team. " At first, Lang Ping practiced track and field events, but because she was too thin, the teacher suggested that she practice basketball. When she arrived at the basketball team, the teacher still thought she was too thin and suggested that she try playing volleyball. Lang Ping said: "In this way, I went to Mr. Meng, who introduced me to the rules of volleyball and other knowledge. Teacher Meng said that you can bounce well and you don’t need to collide in the volleyball match, so it doesn’t matter if you are thin. You can also play volleyball if you are thin. " In this way, Lang Ping had an indissoluble bond with volleyball at school.
Later, Lang Ping participated in the volleyball competition in Chaoyang District on behalf of Chaoyang Middle School at that time, and gradually became famous. People gave him the nickname "Chaoyang Cannon". Speaking of this nickname full of power, the children who listened attentively to Lang Ping’s sharing laughed, and Lang Ping himself couldn’t help laughing.
In today’s activity, the school also invited Lang Ping’s class teacher and classmates at that time. At that time, the head teacher was already white-haired. Lang Ping took a few quick steps and stepped forward to hold the teacher’s hand tightly.

Ma Yuhong, another teacher in Lang Ping, recalled how hard Lang Ping was when she was a student. She said, "Lang Ping went to school before self-study in the morning. Every day, she practiced serving in front of the east wall of the big playground." The student who loves volleyball left a deep impression on Ma Yuhong. She thinks that the child doesn’t know pain and fatigue when practicing. "Before self-study in the morning and after two classes in the afternoon, Lang Ping must have run to the playground and practiced the ball, so that his pants were covered with dirt."
When Lang Ping was a student, she not only loved sports, but also studied subjects. Ma Yuhong recalled: "I remember Lang Ping’s handwriting was very good, and later I knew that she was practicing her own handwriting. Moreover, she always learns "Xu Guozhang English" after class, and her classmate Liu Wei also recalls that Lang Ping knew what she would do in the future, and then she studied English so seriously. " In Ma Yuhong’s impression, Lang Ping has always been a student with a clear goal, and he will persist in doing it after identifying the goal.
Schoolmates face to face with Olympic champions
When Lang Ping returned to his alma mater, the students naturally would not miss the opportunity of face-to-face communication with the Olympic champion, and everyone threw questions at Lang Ping. A junior one boy is learning to play volleyball. He is curious about which technical link is the most important in the competition. Lang Ping said that every technical link in volleyball, including cushion, passing, defense, serving, spiking and blocking, is very important. "I feel very lucky, because I am the main attack, and everyone is watching my final decision. But in front of me, teammates are padding the ball and passing the ball … So volleyball is a project that emphasizes teamwork very much, and any technical link is very important. " Lang Ping told this little classmate that she thinks the most important thing is to actively and enthusiastically participate in sports, because in sports, she can enhance deeper friendship and stronger team spirit with her teammates, which is the most enjoyable.

Some students asked how to overcome setbacks in physical training. Is there a trick? Lang Ping shared that taking part in all physical exercises or other studies will definitely not be smooth sailing. "I didn’t know when I played ball that I would go to the national team and be able to play in the Olympic Games. So it doesn’t matter if I fail. I’ll come again next time. With this encouragement to yourself, this road will be very happy, and every progress and growth can be realized. "
Today, the first "Lang Ping Cup" volleyball league of Chen Jinglun Middle School kicked off, and Lang Ping kicked off the ball for the young players at the scene. On the court, the children serve, save the ball, pass the ball, smash it … and play it like a model.
At today’s event, Chen Jinglun Middle School awarded Lang Ping the certificate of "Outstanding Alumni" and the Lang Ping Alumni Hand Model Admission Certificate. At the same time, the school set up "Lang Ping Class" and awarded "Lang Ping Class".
"Double Olympic Chaoyang" will train more outstanding volleyball reserve talents.
Today, Chaoyang District Education System "Special Office for Key Sports (Volleyball)" was listed in Chen Jinglun Middle School. Yang Beibei, deputy head of Chaoyang District, said in his speech that as early as 2015, Chaoyang District had taken the lead in setting up a volleyball management center and volleyball association in Beijing. The listing of the "Special Office for Key Sports (Volleyball)" in Chaoyang District’s education system is a concrete measure to implement the special action of "Olympic Games in Chaoyang", which will further promote the vigorous development of volleyball in Chaoyang and cultivate more outstanding volleyball reserve talents.

Yang Beibei said in his speech that he especially supported Chen Jinglun Middle School to set up "Lang Ping Class" and "Lang Ping Cup Volleyball League". In the new journey of running a school in the second century, he vigorously promoted patriotism and the spirit of women’s volleyball, so that the spirit of "motherland first, unity and cooperation, tenacious struggle and never give up" took root and developed in Chen Jinglun Middle School.

[Beautiful scenery] The forest is dyed and the autumn colors are gorgeous. Go to the water town to meet the most beautiful autumn scenery in the south of the Yangtze River.

  Autumn always gives people a lonely atmosphere, like a fading picture scroll, pouring out the sadness of parting. The autumn in the Red River Water Town is bright and lush.

  For Yunnan, the circulation of the four seasons seems to be less and less obvious, and perhaps only this yellow fallen leaf can witness the arrival of autumn.

  If you want to chase the red leaf scenery, it is better to feel the street of Honghe water town first. This is autumn in the town, and it will be autumn after a short stay.

  Sometimes I look up at the sky, blue and clear, and my thoughts are infinite. Golden ginkgo, coupled with the blue sky, this transparent sunny and dazzling golden color collides with the unique taste and beauty of autumn.

  Rather critical always thought that autumn could be called when the trees were full of golden colors. In fact, autumn, when a leaf falls slowly, is so complete and silent.

  In the season of osmanthus fragrance, the whole red river water town is soaked in the sweet osmanthus fragrance. In perception, the sense of smell often takes the lead. You haven’t noticed the yellow flowers hidden in the branches. A little wind blows, and the faint fragrance first finds the sense of existence.

  Even the clean streets are stained with osmanthus fragrans, which is unique in autumn, and it looks unique. A sweet-scented osmanthus fragrance makes people stay for a long time. The scenery of the street and the mood of the season are all frozen at this moment in the town.

  In autumn, there are not only fragrant osmanthus, but also red maple. A maple leaf, from light green to orange red, only feels that autumn has arrived in the world, and I don’t know how much wind and rain are swaying. Brilliant as a flower, flaming like a sunset, like fireworks of life, burning in the branches of late autumn.

  Walking in such a small town, the traffic between buildings is nothing to do with me at the moment. Enjoy the warmth of sunshine and the quietness of time. I would like to have a cup of good tea and enjoy autumn scenery in this season.

  Red River water town with abundant autumn colors.

  So beautiful

  If you happen to be there.

The flag football officially entered the Olympics, and it is urgent to build the first national team!

"I’m happy to see the news. Even if I can’t catch it myself, my younger brothers and sisters still have a chance to get on the stage of the Olympic Games!" Tang Chenbo of the Waist Flag Rugby Team of the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology excitedly shared the good news that he and his friends welcomed. Recently, the Organizing Committee of the 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games proposed to add five major events, namely baseball and softball, cricket, stick tennis, squash and waist flag rugby. According to the latest news,The International Olympic Committee was voted by the plenary session, and these five major events officially became the new events of the 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games..

Waist flag rugby

Officially entered the "Olympic era"!

On October 15th, Tang Chenbo’s team and seven other Shanghai university flag football teams participated in the 2023 "Industrial Bank Cup" Shanghai City Amateur Football League and the "Yundong Yangpu Xiuwai" University League Flag Football Open. On the same day, the news that "flag football entered the Olympics" was a hot topic for these college players after the game.

In recent years, China Rugby Association has promoted local rugby associations, firmly grasped the competition and popularized the "two ends", and promoted the sustained and healthy development of rugby in China. Now, this sport has once again ushered in a new historical opportunity. "The entry of new projects into the Olympics will not only usher in a large number of new audiences, but also usher in new players and new teams. In the future, the players who represent China in the Olympic flag rugby project are likely to be among them. " Ding Ye, secretary general of Shanghai Rugby Association, said.

The University of Shanghai for Science and Technology team won the 2023 "Industrial Bank Cup" Shanghai City Amateur League Rugby League and the "Yundong Yangpu Xiuwai" University League Waist Flag Rugby Open Championship.

Why can the "waist flag" enter the Olympics?

The huge stadium, heavily armed athletes and two huge teams on the field ….. these should be many people’s impressions of rugby. However, on the same day, in the waist flag football field in Shanghai Sport University, the reporter looked around and there were no big helmets, thick armor and other slightly bulky protective gear. Only young teenagers wearing shorts and sports T-shirts run, dodge, pass and catch the ball in a sports field the size of a 5-7-a-side football field. The most eye-catching thing on the field is the two long belts tied around each player’s waist.

"The threshold is low, the rules are simple, and the demand for venues is not so high. At the same time, the risk of injury is reduced, and the competition experience is not diminished. Regardless of boys and girls, height and thinness, and novice Xiaobai, you can find your own role and feel the fun of flag football." When it comes to the characteristics of this sport, Zhuang Hengli, a physical education teacher at Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a few treasures. His words explain why flag football can become a new member of the Olympic Games.

In recent years, the word "slimming" is often associated with the Olympic Games. Especially after the International Olympic Committee President Bach took office, the Summer Olympic Games broke through the restrictions of 28 major events, and the host also had more initiative in setting events, at the same time, it made room for the Olympic Games to attract young people to join sports.

The 2028 Olympic Games landed in Los Angeles, USA, and the flag football, which is in the same strain as American football, became one of the main events of the Los Angeles Olympic Games early. As a non-contact, zero-equipment, small-venue football competition form, flag football has no requirements for the number, age and physical quality of participants, even if it is based on zero sports, it can quickly integrate into the team and can realize mixed teams of men and women to compete in the same field. According to the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, there are more children playing flag football in the United States than traditional football, and at the competition level, there are about 20 million flag football players in more than 100 countries, and the players’ participation is balanced.

As IOC President Bach said earlier, the new project should make the Olympic Games younger, closer to city life and more gender-balanced. These, the flag football are all matched.

Why is Shanghai qualified to be a "new starting point"

It is understood that the National Football League (NFL), one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America, is the main promoter of flag football entering the Olympic Games. As early as two years ago, Jia Hengxuan, general manager of NFL China, once revealed that "the entry of the waist flag into the Olympics is progressing smoothly". Now that the dust has settled, it is urgent to lay out and build a "national team selection channel" as soon as possible if China rugby is to make a difference in Los Angeles in 2028. In Jia Hengxuan’s words, "The development of Shanghai rugby is ahead of the whole country, and it is very suitable as a new starting point for China rugby to impact the Olympic Games."

The NFL thinks that Shanghai can be the "starting point" because it has the best rugby soil in the country. There are many data that can prove this "soil". From 2020, the first national flag rugby community activity was organized by Shanghai Rugby Association (hereinafter referred to as "Shanghai Rugby Association") and called on all member units to develop together. This new outdoor sports mode of sports+socialization, which is widely sought after by young people and commercial brands, has rapidly warmed up all over the country, attracting tens of thousands of young people to participate. At the peak, there were 500 flag football communities in China to popularize flag football and organize events in various places.

The number of teams participating in organized amateur adult equipment leagues in China has increased from 8 in 2014 to nearly 80 in 2023. At most, there are more than ten football teams equipped in Shanghai.

There are more than ten national top-level college flag football teams active in amateur competitions of the Education Commission and the sports system in Shanghai all the year round. In recent years, with the implementation of the "double reduction" policy, the flag football has officially become the content of the public welfare distribution class of the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission to serve the schools in the city. There are countless non-governmental training institutions operating in the market. As early as 2018, data showed that more than 8,000 primary school students in Shanghai were trained in rugby courses at least once a week; In the Super Bowl every year, nearly 10 million China viewers watch the live broadcast of the event on TV and new media platforms, among which Shanghai fans account for the majority. In addition, Shanghai is also the most representative American football town-there are not only many clubs, but also a set of scientific management models, which regularly organize training and competitions.

The year-round folk games have become the core of revitalizing this football hotspot. In the past two years, Shanghai Sports Bureau has promoted rugby to the highest level of Shanghai amateur league-league events. The rugby amateur league, which is created by the Football Association, includes four categories: equipment, flag, English and touch. Only the flag football events are subdivided into: U6U8U10U12U14U16 college group, open men’s group, open mixed group, open women’s group, inter-school group, etc … Even during the epidemic period, more than 30,000 adults and teenagers participated in the games in Shanghai.

In recent years, the competition system and stage of Shanghai rugby have been further enhanced and enlarged. Shanghai sports management department brought rugby into the city amateur league, and the government set up a platform to promote and popularize rugby with high-quality resources. All kinds of rugby fans with different genders, different ages, different cultural backgrounds and different sports foundations participated in it. As the main body of the competition, the Shanghai Football Association has attracted the "assist" of the NFL, the top professional sports league, with its authoritative and professional style of running the competition, which can be said to be the joint efforts of many parties to jointly nurture the "soil".

Colleges and universities are the springboard, and competitions are the starting point.

There are less than five years before the Los Angeles Olympic Games. If Shanghai, as a major rugby town, is the axis, then the national colleges and universities are undoubtedly the most suitable platforms and springboard for the future national flag rugby team to excavate, cultivate and select talents.

It is understood that as early as 2008, the NFL began to organize university flag rugby league in Beishangguang, and nearly 40 universities including Tsinghua, Fudan and Guangzhou University participated at that time. Nowadays, flag football is still one of the most popular sports for college students. In Shanghai alone, at present, more than 10 colleges and universities have their own flag football teams, and most of them form teams by recruiting new students, training regularly and selecting the best-the flag football team of Shanghai Sport University, one of the teams participating in the day, was selected from the community in the school, which has more than 200 members in total, one fifth of whom are girls; University of Shanghai for Science and Technology is the earliest university in Shanghai to develop the flag football project. Its team has a complete training system: it is equipped with professional coaches, and the players train for about three hours three times a week, including physical fitness, tactics and other special trainings, as well as mock matches.

Tailor-made events for college students are one of the most effective ways to attract more students to "embrace" the flag football. According to reports, this "Yundong Yangpu Show Out" college league series invited eight college flag football teams from Shanghai to participate for the first time, namely Fudan University, Shanghai University of Science and Technology, Shanghai Electric Power University, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, East China University of Political Science and Law, Shanghai University of Engineering Science, Shanghai Universities of Applied Sciences and Shanghai Sport University. Members of these college flag football teams have a "big stage" to show themselves and their teams, compete on the field and communicate off the field, and everyone’s enthusiasm is naturally more and more sufficient. It is also more suitable for universities to support such an event: Shanghai Sport University, the venue of this event, has given strong support-the trophy of the event is called "Green Tile Bowl", which originated from the Green Tile Building in Shangti University. From 1956 to today, this building has witnessed the inheritance and competition of generations of upper body people. As the earliest sports institution of higher learning established in New China, Shanghai Sport University has a profound cultural heritage, and takes it as its mission to serve the sports power and rejuvenate the country through science and education. Holding the competition here will further promote the development of "integration of sports and education" in regional universities. The "Shanghai Olive Association" also hopes that the tradition of "Green Tile Bowl" can be established and continuously developed into a cross-regional event, which will affect the Yangtze River Delta region.

"Our vision is that,Make full use of Shanghai’s unique rugby soilTaking colleges and universities as a springboard, we selected talented and enthusiastic young players who trained together for a long time, participated in high-quality competitions, even went abroad for higher-level guidance, and learned from international excellent teams, and finally became a truly competitive elite team of flag football. "Ding Ye said.

For China flag football, which has been bred among the people for many years and has a certain foundation, now that it has a real goal, it’s time to speed it up!

Bright Moon in Northern Shandong: Miscellaneous Tan on New Year’s Day

As a national holiday, New Year’s Day has a history of only 70 years, but it carries the cultural genes that have been integrated into the nation for more than 3,000 years.
With regard to New Year’s Day, the accurate interpretation now refers to the first day of the Gregorian calendar (Gregorian calendar) every year, that is, January 1st of the Gregorian calendar. However, this interpretation strictly began with the founding of New China in 1949. In the long river of more than 3,000 years or even longer, New Year’s Day actually refers to the current Spring Festival, that is, the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar, and there are many nicknames such as Yuanri and Yuanzheng. If you read "January Day" in ancient poetry, it is the ancient people’s singing or expressing their feelings during the Spring Festival. Among them, Wang Anshi’s poem "Yuan Ri" in the Northern Song Dynasty is the most popular poem: the sound of firecrackers is one year old, and the spring breeze sends warmth into Tu Su. The rising sun sheds light on doors of each household, New peachwood charm is put up to replace the old. Bai Juyi, a famous man in the mid-Tang Dynasty, wrote "Five Drinks on January Day in Seven Years" in one breath with great interest after drinking on the first day of the first month in 833 AD (seven years refers to the seventh year of Tang Wenzong Taihe), the third of which is: three cups of blue-tailed wine and one cup of gum-tooth enamel. Except for Cui Changshi, no one is arguing with me.
In the Tang Dynasty, people took turns pouring drinks, and the last seat was called "Blue Tail Wine". In the Song Dynasty, Dou Ge explained in the Book of Wine: Today, when people drink Tu Su wine, the clouds can avoid the plague, which is also called blue-tailed wine. Or drink it at the end of the year, so it has the meaning of tail. As for the "gummy tooth jar", Mr. Lu Xun mentioned this scene in "A Random Talk on the Day of Sending Cooks": On the day when Kitchen Jun ascended to heaven, there was still a kind of sugar on the street, the size of a citrus, and there was this kind of thing in our place, but it was flat, like a thick pancake. That’s the so-called gum tooth-in fact, the simplest explanation can be maltose. -I believe readers have found clues: how do firecrackers, peach charms, Tu Su wine to avoid plague and maltose to send to the stove day look more and more like the Spring Festival now, rather than the New Year’s Day in this Gregorian calendar?
Indeed. Bai Juyi, Wang Anshi and countless Yuan Day and New Year’s Day in the poems before Qing Dynasty all refer to the Spring Festival, which is often referred to as the first day of the first month. A little exploration: "New Year’s Day" is an ancient Chinese word, which refers to the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar. In Oracle Bone Inscriptions, the yuan character is a human figure plus a horizontal, which means the head, so it has the meaning of beginning and initial. The pictograph of the word Dan points to the moment when the sun rises on the horizon, so New Year’s Day means "the first day", also known as "three yuan", that is, the yuan of the year, the yuan of the month and the yuan of the time. However, the so-called "first month" has also changed many times with the adjustment of the calendar in the long river of history. Of course, it is all about exploring the "first" or "beginning" of the year. The calendar of Xia Dynasty takes January in spring as the first month, that of Yin Shang Dynasty takes December in winter as the first month, and that of Zhou Dynasty is changed to November. After Ying Zheng, king of Qin, unified China and called him the first emperor, it was changed to October as the first month. The current first day of the first month, as New Year’s Day, started from Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty and remained in use until the end of the Qing Dynasty. Of course, in addition to New Year’s Day and "Yuanri" in Bai and Wang’s poems, there are many names for expressing feelings on the initial day, such as Yuanzheng, Yuanchen, Shangri and Yuanshuo.
In 1949, the first plenary session of the China People’s Political Consultative Conference decided that the new China would adopt the universal method of AD chronology, and designated January 1st of the Gregorian calendar as the beginning of the New Year and listed it as a legal holiday, which is the current New Year’s Day or New Year. In order to distinguish the two "years" of the lunar calendar and the Gregorian calendar, the first day of the first month was renamed the Spring Festival. Back to January 1, 2024, this upcoming New Year’s Day, as a national holiday, actually has only a history of more than 70 years, but it carries the cultural genes that have been integrated into the nation for more than 3,000 years and is the "beginning" of countless hopes and bright future. As described by Xin Xiao, a Wei-Jin poet, in Poem of Yuan Zheng, Yuan Zheng started the Order Festival, and Jiaqing started from here. Salty plays for thousands of years, and the size is the same as Yuexi. Although the yuan in the poem refers to the present Spring Festival, we might as well use it without asking for a solution: wouldn’t it be nice to use this New Year’s Day to start all the beautiful things and warm up for the grand Spring Festival that will come soon?
However, regarding the blessing of New Year’s Day, it is somewhat ordinary to use Happy New Year or Happy New Year. There are enough treasures to be excavated in the profound Chinese traditional culture, such as the Book of Changes. In the Book of Changes, the combination of "Yuan Henry Zhen" appeared many times, and Confucius interpreted it as: "Yuan is good." Heng Zhe, Jia Zhi Hui also. Those who benefit are also the sum of righteousness. Chastity, things are done. A gentleman’s benevolence is enough to grow a man. Jiahui is enough to make a gift. Good things are enough to make peace. Zhen is solid enough to do things. A gentleman does these four virtues. Therefore, it says,’ Dry, Yuan, Heng, Li and Zhen.’ "This is an interpretation of the construction of personal and social virtues, which can be explained in a more popular way as Yuan is the origin, Heng is the collection, Li is the achievement, and Zhen is the righteousness. It can be said that "Yuan Henry Zhen" represents the four stages of virtue cycle upward, and also symbolizes the development logic of everything from weak to strong, which reveals the wisdom and self-confidence of Chinese culture concisely and clearly.
In this case, when we meet tomorrow on the banks of the Pujiang River near the East China Sea, we can smile and say: Yuan Henzhen! (Lubei Mingyue)

  From reform and opening up to overall poverty alleviation, from building the Community of Shared Future for Mankind concept to building a "the belt and road initiative", under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), China not only strode forward on the journey of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, but also continuously contributed China wisdom and China plan to world peace, stability and development, which won universal recognition from international people.

  Wu Wending, editor-in-chief of North Star magazine in Myanmar — —

  Based on the long-term, promote the continuous development of China.

  Our reporter Li Bingxin Zhou Zhuobin

  "I have been to many places in China, and I personally realized that the Communist Party of China (CPC) kept in mind the iron oath. I saw with my own eyes that the Communist Party of China (CPC) would not let a minority brother fall behind and always let the people of the whole country get rid of poverty and get rich together." Wu Wending, editor-in-chief of North Star magazine in Myanmar, has been paying close attention to the development of China. He said, "The deeper you know about China, the more you admire the Communist Party of China (CPC). I deeply feel that we and the people of China are a community of destiny. "

  Wu Wending knows a lot about China’s development achievements. He has been paying close attention to the Communist Party of China (CPC) news for a long time and kept close communication with his counterparts in China media. In recent years, he has reported on the high-level dialogue between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the world’s political parties, and has come to China for many times to participate in the "the belt and road initiative" media cooperation forum and the Lancang River — Media exchange activities such as Mekong River Cooperation Media Summit. In 2017, at the invitation of the International Liaison Department of the CPC Central Committee and People’s Daily, Wu Wending participated in the "Asian Mainstream Media Investigation Group" and went to Beijing and Gansu for interviews and exchanges. What I saw and heard in China gave Wu Wending a deep understanding of the Communist Party of China (CPC)’s ruling philosophy. In Wu Wending’s view, it is under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) that great changes have taken place in China from poverty and weakness in the past to prosperity and strength now.

  During the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Wu Wending came to China and made a lot of reports on many topics, such as ecological environment protection, grassroots pension, coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, and media integration development. After visiting the large-scale achievement exhibition of "Five Years of Hard Work", Wu Wending expressed sincere admiration for the brilliant achievements made by the Communist Party of China (CPC) in leading the people of China, and wrote a poem entitled "Red Star Shining in China" to express his admiration for the Communist Party of China (CPC). “‘ The Communist Party of China (CPC) comes from the people, lives for the people and prospers for the people ’ ‘ The Communist Party of China (CPC) is a party that strives for happiness for the people of China, and it is also a party that strives for the cause of human progress ’ I think that the Communist Party of China (CPC)’s feelings for the people are well reflected in these words. " He said.

  “中国共产党不仅把为人民谋幸福作为自己的头等大事,还积极倡导世界和平与发展。”吴温丁表示,新冠肺炎疫情防控期间,人们愈发意识到,人类社会是休戚与共的命运共同体,重大传染性疾病防控和全球公共卫生应急管理需要凝聚全人类的智慧和力量。“习近平主席提出的构建人类命运共同体理念具有重大世界意义。共建‘一带一路’是中国与沿线国家和地区分享发展机遇的实践,是构建人类命运共同体的重要举措,让世界人民看到了改善生活的希望。”吴温丁表示,“有些国家的政客只考虑下一次选举,而有远见卓识的政治家考虑的是下一代人。中国共产党的领导集体由有远见卓识的政治家组成,总是为下一代人考虑,做长远打算,推动中国不断向前发展。”

  Aken Suwell, Chairman of Marmara Strategic and Social Research Foundation in Turkey — —

  Benign interaction makes China society full of vitality.

  Our reporter Wang Chuanbao

  "The secret of China’s rapid growth into the world’s second largest economy lies in the Communist Party of China (CPC)’s strong leadership." Aken Suwell, Chairman of the Turkish Marmara Foundation for Strategic and Social Research, pointed out in an interview with this reporter that China, with a population of more than 1.4 billion, cannot move towards development and prosperity without effective policies and development roadmap formulated by the Communist Party of China (CPC).

  Suwell has been engaged in journalism for more than 20 years and interviewed leaders of many countries. He is a well-known current affairs critic in Turkey. In 1998, Sewell became the chairman of the Marmara Foundation for Strategic and Social Studies and founded the Eurasian Economic Summit, aiming at establishing a dialogue mechanism and promoting regional dispute settlement and peaceful development.

  Su Wei’s unique life experience gave him a profound understanding of human development. He believed that the Communist Party of China (CPC) had distinct principles and characteristics, always adhered to the people-oriented development concept, and made unremitting efforts to promote equality of rights, opportunities and rules, which won wide support from the people. The people believe in the Party, and the Party takes the people as the center. The benign interaction makes China society full of vitality.

  In 2013, China put forward the initiative of building a "the belt and road initiative" by coordinating the overall situation at home and abroad and focusing on the future of human development. This initiative follows the principle of co-construction, co-construction and sharing, and is strongly recognized by Sowell. He said, "the belt and road initiative" is an important peace project, which closely links the east and west ends of Asia, promotes economic cooperation and cultural integration, and lays a new foundation for human civilization and progress. "Build ‘ The belt and road initiative ’ It is not only the need to develop the economy and achieve a win-win situation, but also the requirement of the times and peace. " In order to deeply understand and study how to build a "the belt and road initiative", Sowell visited China for more than 10 times, exchanged ideas with China scholars, and introduced them to people from all walks of life after returning home. In the opening speech of the 22nd Eurasian Economic Summit held in 2019, Sowell repeatedly mentioned the joint construction of "the belt and road initiative", and this initiative became one of the important topics of the summit.

  Sowell said that last year, in the face of the sudden COVID-19 epidemic, the China government quickly took effective measures to control the spread of the epidemic, and became the only major economy in the world that achieved positive economic growth, fully demonstrating its institutional advantages. Sowell told reporters that he and his wife were vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine from China. He said with emotion: "In this fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, the government and people of China not only fought for their own country, but also provided a lot of support and help to other countries in the world, such as vaccines, medicines and equipment from COVID-19. China’s concept of building Community of Shared Future for Mankind is becoming an ideological driving force to encourage countries to work together to deal with the epidemic. "

  Sewell pointed out that it is a great historical achievement for a political party to last for a hundred years. As a century-old party, the Communist Party of China (CPC) is full of infinite vitality. I believe that with its unremitting efforts, China will make new contributions to the development of human civilization.

  Awad, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Sudan’s Shout and an expert on international issues — —

  An active and promising member of the international community.

  Our reporter Shang Kaiyuan

  “中国共产党的历史,是一部为实现目标宗旨而不懈奋斗的壮丽史诗,每一个篇章都值得认真研读。”苏丹《呐喊报》副主编、国际问题专家阿瓦德表示,中国共产党在漫长岁月中取得的成就,与其领导人的品质和能力牢不可分,同党与各族人民的血肉联系密切相关。

  阿瓦德认为,正是因为把命运牢牢掌握在自己手中,中国实现了理想目标,发展成为世界第二大经济体。中国共产党把马克思主义基本原理同中国具体实践相结合,走出了一条中国特色社会主义发展道路。“在当代,习近平新时代中国特色社会主义思想是这一道路的最新成果,充分说明中国共产党和中国人民在实践、经验、思想等方面持续不断发展。”

  作为执政党,中国共产党采取切实有效的政策,鼓励人民群众开展创新活动,激发全社会的创新能力,为产业发展打开了广阔天地,在许多重要领域实现巨大飞跃。“发挥制度优势使中国科技快速发展,通过在战略性、基础性、前瞻性领域增加投入,中国提高了科研能力,并取得了一系列创新成果。”阿瓦德认为,中国对全球经济增长贡献巨大,在清洁能源、科技创新等领域的发展令人称赞。“我相信,中国人民将在中国共产党的领导下,信心百倍地贯彻执行党和国家的发展规划,实现中国梦。”

  Awad visited China for the first time in 2016 and participated in the first Asian-African Youth Festival. This experience provided him with an opportunity to get to know China on the spot. "The people of China have many advantages, such as seriousness and perseverance." Since then, he has visited China many times to participate in exchange activities, and his understanding of China is getting deeper and deeper. In awad’s view, the people of China are eager to know the world and hope to build a bridge of cooperation. the Communist Party of China (CPC) has also carried out constructive exchanges with political parties of various countries to promote cooperation and mutual trust between countries. "the Communist Party of China (CPC) is the largest political party in the world, and many political parties want to know their practical experience accumulated on the road to realizing the great rejuvenation of the nation." Awad said.

  Awad was deeply touched by China’s efforts to strengthen cooperation among countries in the world. China proposed to build a "the belt and road initiative" to promote policy communication, facilities connectivity, smooth trade, financial intermediation and popular support among countries. He said: "China is committed to pursuing common interests, realizing the common well-being of people of all countries and building a better world."

  During the epidemic prevention and control in COVID-19, China launched an initiative of uniting against the epidemic to the world, helping other countries to fight the epidemic with practical actions. Awad said: "This highlights that China is an active member of the international community and has a great influence on the just cause of the international community." At present, global economic recovery requires countries, especially major economies, to strengthen cooperation, and awad expects China to play a greater role in it.

  Bubacar Seyni Gagaha, Deputy Secretary of Propaganda of Niger People’s Socialist Party — —

  Not only maintain historical continuity, but also keep pace with the times.

  Our reporter Qiang Wei

  Bubacar Seyni Gagaha is the Deputy Secretary of Propaganda of the Niger ruling Party for Democracy and Socialism (PDPS) and the Director of the Archives Department of the Ministry of National Defense. In an interview with reporters recently, he said that he sincerely admired the Communist Party of China (CPC)’s century-long development. "Especially during the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic, the world saw more clearly the institutional advantages of China under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, and the People’s Socialist Party also regarded the Communist Party of China (CPC) as a role model for political parties."

  In July 2017, at the invitation of the International Liaison Department of the CPC Central Committee, Gagaha led a youth delegation of the People’s Socialist Party to visit China and visit Beijing, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chengdu and other cities. Before the visit, the members of the delegation knew little about China, especially the Communist Party of China (CPC)’s ruling style. "Through this visit, we found that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the socialist democracy promoted by China is the most extensive, authentic and effective democracy. In China, the equal rights of the people are effectively guaranteed, and people of all ethnic groups are represented in the national legislature, and their legitimate rights and interests in all aspects can be safeguarded. " Gagaha said that another feature of China’s socialist democracy is the multi-party cooperation and political consultation system led by the Communist Party of China (CPC). "This system unites all forces to the greatest extent and breaks down obstacles for the sustainable development of China."

  这次访问给加加哈和全团成员留下了极为深刻的印象。“从回国那天起,我就一直想再次回到中国。每次别人问起我放长假希望去哪里,我的回答都是中国。中国有太多我想要进一步了解和学习的地方。”

  带着这样的想法,加加哈阅读了《习近平谈治国理政》《摆脱贫困》等书籍,经常浏览中国新闻媒体的法文版。加加哈说,通过不断增进对中国共产党的了解,他发现中国共产党具有许多显著特点。“第一,中国共产党提出的理论以实践作为支撑。只有这样的理论才能真正指导中国的建设实践,在此基础上制定的各项政策才符合中国实际需要。第二,中国共产党既保持了历史延续性,又做到与时俱进,领导人的治国理念一脉相承、不断发展。第三,中国共产党有严密的组织纪律以及坚定的理想信念,这保证了其长期有效运转,并始终明确执政目标。最后也是最重要的一点,中国共产党能够始终保持与人民群众的血肉联系。”加加哈指出,这些理论和实践经验对发展中国家政党加强自身建设很有帮助。

  In the interview, Gagaha told a story around him: "I chatted with a stranger while drinking tea at a street tea stall the other day. He told me that we should thank China. It is because of China that we can now have motorcycles running all over the street, watch TV and listen to radios that can be bought for one or two thousand CFA francs (about one hundred and twenty yuan). " Gagaha said: "This shows the influence of China on the development of Niger and Africa. The process of global industrialization has already started, but ordinary people in African countries have really begun to enjoy industrialized products more generally, which is inseparable from the role and influence of China’s rapid development in recent decades. "

  "The People’s Socialist Party has always regarded the Communist Party of China (CPC) as a rare true partner. We know that China and the Communist Party of China (CPC) really care about African countries and are really willing to help us develop. " Gagaha said with emotion.

International Hot Review: The whole world is dancing this dance. I didn’t expect this wave of culture to go out of the circle!

This article was transferred from [China News Network];
Zhongxin. com, December 18 (Zhang Naiyue) "Hands are shaking, feet are shaking". Recently, a dance called "Subject Three" has been constantly swiping the screen network, and even set off a craze around the world.
Even the Royal Russian Ballet, which is touring in China, "do as the Romans do". After the performance, it suddenly danced the popular online dance "Subject III", which won applause and laughter, and caused a heated discussion on the Internet.
"Swan Lake" meets "Subject 3"
The full name of "subject three" is "subject three in Guangxi", and its origin has been difficult to verify. Many people think that it comes from the anecdotal saying that "every Guangxi has to go through three exams in life: singing folk songs, talking about rice noodles and dancing".
Some netizens introduced on Russian social media that the popular "Ballet Edition Subject III" came from a performance of the Royal Russian Ballet in Shenyang, China recently. After the performance of "Swan Lake", the ballerinas danced "Subject III". Many dancers dressed in ballet costumes danced in unison with the rhythm of modern electronic music, and some people could not help smiling.
Image source: screenshot of social platform
This video also caused a sharing craze on social media platforms such as Facebook, X (original Twitter) and TikTok.
Some netizens said, "The adaptation is very interesting", "Ballet can’t escape the third subject" and "The ubiquitous third subject". Others left a message saying that "I didn’t expect this wave of culture to go out of the circle".
From "going out of the circle" to "going out to sea"
Not only ballet, "Subject III" also collided with Latin dance. At the 2023 World Sports Dance Grand Prix held in Shanghai in early December, many dancers, including the world champion of Latin dance, showed the "Subject III" combined with Latin dance steps, and the movements were full of power.
At present, "Subject 3" has become a hot challenge project of the global short video platform. Netizens from all over the world have left messages on social media, or shared their videos of "Subject 3".
Some people think that the action of "subject three" is cute.
Others worry about the fragile ankles behind the dancers’ silky steps.
"Subject 3" has sprung up in South Korea, and some people performed at the school graduation party, which attracted cheers from the audience. The entry of "subject three Korea" once rushed to the hot search. Some people said it was "wonderful" and thought it was "culture out of the circle", while others were curious. "Why is the whole world jumping?"
There are also bloggers who record teaching videos and teach "subject three" by hand.
Image source: screenshot of social platform
Some Korean netizens left a message under the video of a Jianghu dance teaching, "I really want to learn this."
More Russian bloggers dressed in cheongsam in Moscow’s Red Square challenged "Subject 3" for three times below zero. Some people are surprised that "subject three is popular all over the world?" Some people found that people in the video jumped up with them, and others reminded bloggers to keep warm.

In addition, netizens from Britain, Ukraine, the Philippines, Spain and other countries showed off their dancing and attracted numerous praises.
Smile, dance and resonate.
"Subject III" can dance both solo and in groups: people twist their waists, swing their hips and wave their hands, and with their ankles half twisted, they are extremely silky in one go, which is called "in line with the mental state of contemporary people" and "the square dance of young people". Even if you watch it, you can have fun and relax from the video.
Image source: Tik Tok blogger "Love Beauty" video screenshot
Overseas, "Subject III" first spread among China students, and then "spread" to overseas teenagers. Many young people with foreign faces shouted, "The Russian area is divided", "The English area is not big, creating myths" and started "competition", which added heat to the "subject three".
Music and dance are ways of communication that can transcend nations and languages. "Subject III" spread quickly because of its easy-to-understand and relatively easy-to-remember dance and "brainwashing" music, which easily mobilized the senses and was easily imitated.
However, the success of "subject three" in becoming a cultural phenomenon "going out of the circle" or even "going out to sea" is inseparable from the feeling of relaxation and freedom it brings to people, which is a simple happiness that netizens from all over the world can experience. Faced with the pressure of reality, modern people can show their personality, gain resonance and vent their emotions by playing with stalks, and they can find happiness from it no matter where they come from.
The collision between ballet, Latin dance and the popular internet stem "Subject III" is the communication between tradition and modernity, and also the communication between different cultures. Between a gesture and a slide, the audience and dancers will smile, and different nationalities will know each other better.

Stick to exercise, what changes will happen to your body? Understand in one article ↓

Insisting on exercise is good for physical and mental health. Many friends, because of hard exercise, have healthy bodies. There are still some friends who are unable to act for various reasons. After all, exercise is really: too tired!

What are the benefits of insisting on exercise? Today, we will give you a wave of chicken blood.

01

"I have been running for 5 years, from more than 160 kilograms to 120 kilograms. My high blood pressure, moderate fatty liver and overweight have long since disappeared."

analysis

Exercise is one of the most active and effective methods to prevent obesity, which can not only help control weight and improve physiological function, but also prevent weight rebound and reduce the occurrence of chronic diseases related to obesity.

In addition, adhering to regular exercise can also improve heart function and vascular elasticity, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammatory factors, regulate blood lipids, reduce cardiovascular risk factors, effectively prevent cardiovascular diseases and promote the rehabilitation of cardiovascular patients.

02

"The biggest feeling that insisting on exercise gives me is that I feel energetic every day and my life and work become very relaxed."

analysis

Regular exercise is good for brain health, which can not only cause good emotional and state reactions, but also reduce the release of inhibitory neurotransmitters and delay central fatigue, thus making life more enjoyable and work easier.

03

"After running for three months, the body fat dropped from 30% to 17%. Now you can clearly see the abdominal muscles, and people are much lighter. I will continue to refuel and strive to make myself stronger and healthier. "

analysis

Aerobic exercise belongs to the exercise in which the amount of oxygen consumed and the amount of oxygen absorbed are equal. Long-term and moderate-intensity exercise can increase body fat consumption and is an ideal way to reduce fat.

Three simple steps to master moderate-intensity aerobic exercise easily:

1. Calculate the maximum heart rate: maximum heart rate =205.8- age x0.685.

2. Calculate the moderate intensity exercise heart rate: moderate intensity exercise heart rate =64%~76%* maximum heart rate.

3. Bring heart rate monitoring equipment to control the exercise heart rate in a moderate intensity range.

"After exercising, I have a good sleep and can go into deep sleep."

analysis
