Uygur Clothing, Colorful as a Summer Garden

THE Uygur people mostly live in the oasis of the Tarim Basin south of the Tianshan Mountains in northwestern China. In their long history, this ethnic group has developed a unique clothing style based on its religion and culture, which is known for rich colors, designs and patterns of elegant simplicity. The Uygur people are great lovers of nature, and pay much attention to what they wear. As a result, elements of nature, especially flora, are the inspiration of the designs of traditional Uygur costumes.

The Eternally Radiant City of Jinan

IF we were to discuss locations of historical artifacts and origins of famous people, the city of Jinan would probably not make it onto the list of big name cities like Beijing, Nanjing, or Xi’an. In terms of natural beauty like towering and magnificent mountain landscapes, Jinan also cannot be compared with the cities like Chongqing, nor in terms of water-oriented scenery could it be compared with Harbin, Hangzhou, or Suzhou.

Uncoding Peking Opera Headwear

THE word “Kuitou” in Peking Opera is the technical term for various kinds of hats and headpieces worn by various characters in traditional Chinese opera. Usually the headpiece worn by an individual represents their designated identity, and in Peking Opera, performers wear different kinds of headdresses depending on the occasion and character they are performing. More than just meeting the requirements of acting, it also reveals an aspect of traditional Chinese culture. During the peak period of Peking Opera’s popularity, there were over 500 different kinds of headdresses worn by actors. They were not merely just a costume but also exquisite pieces of handiwork.

A Trip to Xinjiang: Bilingual Education in Kucha

WHERE shall I start? How about the biting midsummer sun in Xinjiang? How about my lack of geographical awareness of this Chinese region? Xinjiang is close to Central Asia. And as such, although it is mostly a Uygur region – with more than 10 million Uygur people – it is also home to multiple ethnic groups: the Kazakhs, the Mongols, the Kyrgyz, the Hui, the Tajik, the Daur, the Xibe, the Tatars, the Manchus, and the Uzbeks. During my trip traveling along the Silk Road, I tried my best to meet with Uygurs.

Overcoming Cerebral Palsy to Be a Professional Translator

AT nine o’clock every evening in Urumqi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, while the remaining rays of daylight are still lingering along the western horizon, Hu Jing and her mother walk around the community hand in hand. They follow the same route they have taken again and gain. When they meet familiar neighbors, they stop and happily greet each other, just like any ordinary family in China.

Wang Hao’s Good Furniture

After sweeping several roads and returning to her rented bungalow, Wang Hao was in need of some rest. She had been up since dawn. As she closed her eyes, the crying of the neighbor’s child pierced through the thin walls and shattered her moment of peace. Lying in bed, she thought about how it was time to visit her husband Li Bing again, and found it even more difficult to sleep. Li had been hospitalized for several months, without any sign of improvemnet. Wang was so worried that she sat up, staring at the gray window for a while. Then she remembered Li’s wish of having the furniture rearranged. She got up slowly, tears streaming down her face, and began to move the furniture about.

A Kaleidoscope of China in Films

FILM is likened by some to a window on multi-faceted human conditions; by others to a mirror which reflects people’s souls. Chinese films are such windows and mirrors through which one can know the status of Chinese people and feel their yearnings and dreams.

The Prospects of China-U.S. Relations

THE 40th anniversary of the establishment of China-U.S. diplomatic relations should have made 2019 an important year for joint commemoration and renewed cooperation. Regrettably however, the U.S. has taken a series of actions to obstruct and suppress China in trade, science, and technology, and has been meddling in a series of issues concerning China’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. The U.S. actions not only undermined the mutual trust that the two sides built over four decades, but also swayed global stability and development.

Food Security in China and Its Global Contribution

FOOD security is a main cornerstone of national security and development. In China, it’s a top priority for the government. By dramatically increasing grain production and modernizing the food industry, China has secured the baseline of enjoying grain self-sufficiency. Producing a quarter of the world’s grain output with less than 10 percent of the world’s arable land, and feeding one fifth of the world’s population, China has made a historic achievement with far-reaching impact on food security worldwide.

Dialogue between Art and Science in the Age of AI

IN November 2019, more than 120 pieces of art work combining art and modern science and technology on the theme of “AS-Helix: the Integration of Art and Science in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” created by nearly 200 artists from more than 20 countries and regions were presented at the Fifth International Art and Science Works Exhibition held at the National Museum of China in Beijing. These works displayed the artists’ multiple explorations in the field of artificial intelligence, including topics such as the boundary of human cognition, the artistic paradigm of technological innovation, and the collaborative innovation of technology and art, and showed the appeal of the era of “art and science.”
