 Amazing China


  A six-episode documentary, Amazing China, co-produced by the Publicity Department of the CPC and China Central Television (CCTV), was aired on the state broadcaster CCTV on September 19.


  The documentary highlights new development concepts of innovation, coordination, greening, opening up and inclusiveness, and summarizes China's social and economic achievements since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).


  The film crew spent three months shooting around 3,200 hours of footages and interviewing 108 people across the country. Finally, the documentary contains 65 true stories, 250 infrastructure projects and 200 sets of economic data in the past five years.


  The documentary has sparked patriotism and a strong sense of pride among the public as it vividly shows China's achievements in infrastructure development, technological innovation, ecological civilization construction, livelihood projects and China's opening-up to the outside world.

  2. 德国大选

 German Election


  Angela Merkel won a fourth term as chancellor in elections on Sunday, even as her victory was dimmed by the entry of a far-right party into Parliament for the first time in more than 60 years, according to preliminary results.


  Ms. Merkel’s conservative bloc won some 32.9 percent of the vote, sharply down from 41.5 percent in 2013, the early results showed.


  The center-left Social Democrats slumped to 20.8 percent, a new postwar low, down from 25.7 percent four years ago.


  The Social Democrats, Ms. Merkel’s coalition partners for the last four years, announced Sunday evening that the party would go into opposition, hoping to rebuild their political profile.


  An alternative coalition for Merkel would be a three-way tie-up with the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) and the Ecologist Greens. That is a combination as yet untested at national level and known as the “Jamaica” option because the three parties’ colors are those of the black-gold-green Jamaica national flag.

  3. 英拉获刑

 Yingluck trial verdict


  Thailand’s supreme court has found the former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra guilty of negligence and sentenced her to five years in prison, a verdict delivered in absentia a month after she fled the country.


  Yingluck, whose elected government was overthrown in 2014 by the army generals who still control the kingdom, had denied allegations relating to a mishandled and costly rice subsidy scheme.


  On August 25, her lawyer cited an ear problem as the reason for her no-show. However, the court rejected the excuse and delayed the verdict, later issuing an arrest warrant. The junta chief, Prayuth Chan-ocha, ordered border checks to be increased.


  Yingluck’s exact whereabouts are unknown, although Puea Thai party sources said she fled to Cambodia and flew via Singapore to Dubai.


  Stories of her escape, possibly assisted by several police officers, have entranced the country.

    4. 微信更换启动页面

 WeChat changes splash page


  WeChat announced that it will be rolling out a new image of Earth for its splash page between Sept. 25 and 28. This is the first-ever change that the company has made to its launch screen in its six-year history.


  Since the app’s inception in 2011, WeChat’s splash page has featured an image of Earth called Blue Marble taken from outer space in 1972 by NASA. The new image is captured by Chinese weather satellite Feng Yun-4A.


  Whereas Blue Marble shows Africa at the center of the globe, FY-4A’s snapshot features China. The change is intended to celebrate the major technological breakthroughs of the FY-4 satellite series-China’s second generation of meteorological satellites.


  “The African continent is the origin of human civilization,” WeChat said of the original image. “Only with the emergence of humankind does the ability to communicate exist and have meaning.


  “The FY-4A’s photo is meant along the same vein, to honor the emergence of Chinese civilization by featuring China’s geography to our hundreds of millions of users.”

    5. 电子身份标识

   electronic identification (eID)


  China is planning to embed personal identity information into SIM cards to better protect citizens’ private information, according to the country’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS).


  Electronic identification, or eID for short, is a secure form of online identity that is embedded in a smart security chip. The identity information cannot leak but can be accessed remotely.


  When making transactions with SIM eIDs, citizens will no longer need to provide personal information, such as their names, address, phone number, and ID number, because online platforms will be able to verify the authenticity and validity of the eID.


  Personal information leakage has become a serious problem in the era of Internet. The technology will greatly lower the risk of identity theft, protecting citizens’ rights to privacy, online transactions, and virtual property.


  According to the Third Research Institute of the MPS, SIM eID technology is just getting started, and electronic identities will be of great use in the future in the self-service areas of immovable assets and food and drug inspection.

  6. 北京城市总体规划

 the Beijing Urban Master Plan



  By 2020, the size of resident population in Beijing should be under 23 million and kept at this level thereafter, according to the Beijing Urban Master Plan (2016-35) issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council on Wednesday


  “Non-capital functions” of Beijing will be gradually removed. As part of the integrated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Beijing is redeveloping Tongzhou District into a subsidiary administrative center and Xiong’an New Area in Hebei Province will absorb some “non-capital functions” from Beijing.  


  Priority should be given to protection of the environment, with accelerated ecological restoration, an end to illegal occupation of land in shallow mountain areas, and increased forested areas on the plains.


  The document also urged the preservation of the historic city and its features.


  According to the document, more land will be made available for residences, for both rental and purchase, and a long-term mechanism will ensure a healthy real estate market.

  release of Youth halted


  The upcoming China release of Youth, a bittersweet drama from famed director Feng Xiaogang, has been abruptly halted. The film was scheduled for release Sept. 29 and was expected to dominate the charts over the Oct. 1 National Day holiday.


  Youth tracks the tempestuous fates of a People’s Liberation Army dance troupe from the 1966 to the 1990s.


  Some industry insiders believe that the fierce competition during this year's National Day holidays may have played a major role in the rescheduling.

  10. 首席科学家南仁东逝世

  Chief scientist Nan Rendong dies


  Nan Rendong, chief scientist for the world’s largest radio telescope, died of lung cancer on Friday night at 72.


  Nan was the initiator and founder of the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope project, which helps humans to explore the universe and search for extraterrestrial civilizations.


  He began work on the project in 1994 and was responsible for choosing its location, conducting feasibility studies, creating preliminary designs while determining its scientific goals and guiding research and tests on its key technologies. Most core members of the project are his students.


  The National Astronomical Observation under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which built the telescope, said in an obituary that according to Nan’s wills, the funeral will be simple and no memorial service will be held.


  It is worth mentioning that the Chinese Academy of Sciences in August announced the 2017 Chinese Academy of Sciences preliminary candidates list, 72-year-old Nan Rendong is the eldest candidate in this election. In May this year, Nan Rendong also won the first “National Innovation Award” Medal. This is another important science and technology award approved and set up by the state, following the National Natural Science Award, the National Technology Invention Award, and the National Science and Technology Progress Award.

  The acquisition also includes a full set of Bubble Pup GIFs used in the app as well as design sketches of Bubble Pup intended to tell the story of how a chat sticker is born.


  “It is a fantastically important addition to our collection of digital design, reflecting the ever-changing way we communicate and consume information,” said Tim Reeve, Deputy Director of the V&A.
