The wound on Xiaojun’s wrist.

  The 21-year-old Xiaojun hurried through the breakfast cooked by his mother and returned to the game world of "the glory of the king" — — He has been playing for three hours. Mother Wang Li went out to buy food. After more than 10 minutes, she suddenly received a phone call from her son and only heard a sentence "Help me"! When my mother came home, the scene in front of her still haunted her: there was a big pool of blood on the living room floor, and the blood spread to the bedroom. Lying in bed and covered in blood, my son pointed to a fruit knife and told his mother, "I pricked my own … …”

  What happened?

  Stab yourself 13 times.

  The operation lasted for 5 hours.

  On the morning of the 6th, Xiaojun was lying on the hospital bed in the hand surgery ward of Xuzhou Renci Hospital, his eyes were wandering, but he would stay on the TV on the opposite wall from time to time, where an NBA basketball game was being broadcast. Xiaojun said that he used to like watching basketball very much. After he became addicted to online games, he seldom watched games.

  Xiaojun stabbed himself 13 times, and his arms, neck and abdomen were wrapped in gauze, but he seemed to recover well. Although the wound still hurts, every time his mother Wang Li hears his casual groan and asks, he always says "it doesn’t matter".

  After Xiaojun was injured and admitted to the hospital, Wang Li almost never left. Wang Li said that the child is introverted, but very obedient. She rarely scolds him at ordinary times. Now that the child has made a mistake, she can’t bear to be harsh.

  Talking about the child’s injury, 57-year-old Wang Li’s face is full of doubts. On the morning of December 1st, she cooked breakfast as usual. Xiaojun woke up early, holding his cell phone in bed. At 9 o’clock, Wang Li went out to buy food, and she casually greeted the child. More than 10 minutes later, while bargaining with vendors in the food market, Wang Li’s mobile phone rang. After being connected, she heard a painful voice: "Mom, help me!" "

  It only took Wang Li a few minutes to run home and open the door. The scene in front of her frightened her. There is a big pool of blood on the living room floor, and on the floor leading to the bedroom, it is like being drawn with a huge brush. Wang Li ran into the bedroom and found Xiaojun lying beside the bed, covered in blood. Xiaojun had just finished the phone call, and the hand holding the mobile phone was still covered with blood, and the other hand was tightly covering his abdomen. Xiaojun was still conscious at that time and said softly, "I stabbed myself with a knife."

  Xiaojun was immediately sent to Xuzhou Renci Hospital. The doctor in the hand surgery ward of the hospital said that the patient stabbed his neck, upper limbs, abdomen and buttocks with a fruit knife. The hospital immediately organized experts to perform surgery to repair blood vessels, nerves and tendons. After more than 5 hours of emergency rescue, the operation was successful.

  Experts told Zi Niu news reporter that the injured lost a lot of blood, but fortunately they were sent to the hospital in time, which did not cause serious consequences.

  Experience before the outbreak


  After graduating from technical school, he has changed nearly 10 jobs.

  Xiaojun’s family is very ordinary. He is the only child in the family, and his parents were both workers. His mother retired from the unit a few years ago to take care of the family full-time, and his father retired from the unit and looked for a job everywhere. In addition to retirement wages, father’s income from odd jobs has become the main source of income for the family. Although the family is not well-off, in Wang Li’s view, "at least I have never suffered from children."

  After graduating from a technical school in Xuzhou three years ago, Xiaojun tried nearly 10 jobs intermittently. Recently, he just quit his job as a tower crane on the construction site. Wang Li and her husband have never made financial demands on their children. They feel that their children are still young and it is not time to put pressure on them.

  "He doesn’t think about playing games every day instead of working hard," said Wang Li. Xiaojun worked in internal security for nearly a year and often worked overtime. When he came home, his children were too tired to turn on the computer. Wang Li thinks that when Xiaojun is resting at home, playing games to kill time is also a kind of rest.

  Wang Li said that Xiaojun is somewhat introverted, but very obedient. There is no obstacle to family communication at ordinary times, so she never understands how children can make "stupid things". The only reason she can think of is that "it’s all from playing games"!

  Wang Li doesn’t know that Xiaojun’s recent favorite game is called the glory of the king. She just thinks that Xiaojun has no idea to go out to work since he played this game.


  I lost a few games in the game and felt "particularly frustrated in my life"

  Like many peers, Xiaojun has been playing games for almost 10 years. Regarding the glory of the king, Xiaojun said that this game is not very good, but it is really "addictive".

  Xiaojun doesn’t think he did something stupid because he was addicted to playing games. "That impulse was actually an outbreak of long-term depression," Xiaojun told Zi Niu news reporter. He had just lost several games at the time of the incident, and suddenly felt that his life was meaningless: "I was particularly frustrated."

  The "frustration" in Xiaojun’s mouth probably began after graduating from a technical school three years ago. The school recommended him to a machinery factory. Xiaojun majored in mechatronics, but the job here is assembly. "What I have learned is completely useless." More than 20 students who joined this enterprise with Xiaojun soon left their jobs one after another. Xiaojun said that he could tolerate the low-paying and boring work, and it was the daily commuting time that prompted him to follow in the footsteps of his classmates. From home to the enterprise, Xiaojun has to take the bus for about 1 hour, and then transfer to the factory car. It takes 2 hours to get down. "I need to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning and get off work at 6 o’clock in the evening. I usually get home after 8 o’clock."

  The second job, recommended by the school, is a waiter in a catering enterprise in Xuzhou. Wang Li feels that this job has stimulated the child. "The unit leader found fault everywhere because the child’s hair was a little long at that time." She and her husband both supported Xiaojun’s resignation.


  I once had a fierce family dispute because I wanted to go out and make a break.

  The two jobs were not smooth, and the parents never blamed themselves. On the contrary, Xiaojun felt a little discouraged. Xiaojun said that his father was retiring from the unit at that time, and his family had certain economic pressure. He was eager to share it with his family earlier.

  After quitting his job as a waiter, Xiaojun tried to work in a car decoration shop. The main job every day is to wash the car for the guests. "It’s very tired and worthless." A few months later, he tried the position of tower crane on the construction site. This time, his parents asked him to quit the job. The mother felt that the child often worked at night and the lighting on the construction site was not good. "What if the child fell?"

  The longest job Xiaojun has done is the internal security work of security enterprises. After working for nearly a year, Xiaojun is even more depressed, his salary is not high, and he often works overtime. The most uncomfortable thing is that most of his colleagues are uncles in their 40 s and 50 s. "There is no common language at all, and I feel that I am wasting my life."

  Xiaojun had a fierce argument with his parents. He once proposed to go to a city with better economic conditions. Unexpectedly, his parents immediately objected. Xiaojun’s father said, "You haven’t even washed your clothes. Can you take care of yourself?" Mother Wang Li always said that she doesn’t need Xiaojun to earn much money, just live a stable life, so far away from home, how can parents take care of him?


  Although his parents don’t blame him, he feels "very useless"

  In the communication with Zi Niu journalists, Wang Li mentioned many times that real life is too harsh on children, and she doesn’t understand why society can’t provide children with a stable job. She once thought of turning to some institutions to provide some employment guidance and pre-job training for her children.

  Every time Xiaojun leaves his job, his parents never blame him, which makes Xiaojun feel "very useless". His way of venting his emotions is still online games. Xiaojun said that he actually has no "internet addiction", but he just thinks that what else can he do besides playing games? Since junior high school, he seems to have adapted to this life, and many of his classmates are like himself, spending their spare time in front of the computer. Xiaojun doesn’t have many friends in reality. On the contrary, he has met many people in the online game world, but apart from chatting about games, he and netizens rarely have other topics.

  When Xiaojun was engaged in internal security work, he alienated the game. Because he often worked overtime, he was very tired after returning home and lost the impulse to play games.

  Father likes to keep fit. During that time, Xiaojun followed his father to keep fit. Father and son often go to the gym together. After his father is busy with his work, Xiaojun insists on it, and his father often praises him for his "fruitful" practice. This hobby other than playing games failed to enrich Xiaojun’s life after all. All kinds of difficulties in work are still going on, and Xiaojun feels that he is getting more and more depressed until he has a heart-wrenching outbreak.

  Expert pulse-taking

  Find your own position

  Make up "career planning"

  Zhou Xianyang, deputy director of the Student Affairs Department of Jiangsu Normal University and director of the Employment and Entrepreneurship Guidance Service Center, believes that from Xiaojun’s employment experience, he has always been in a passive state of choosing a job and failed to find his own position. His various reasons for resignation seem more like avoiding.

  Zhou Xianyang suggested that Xiaojun might as well make a career plan first, find a correct position according to his own situation and stick to it. In fact, ordinary posts also need to learn and pay, but also need to try and practice. The initial stage is more about experience, and through our own efforts, we can develop step by step.

  Zhou Xianyang also suggested that Xiaojun’s parents should have confidence in their children and encourage them instead of "protecting" them blindly. In modern society, how many people don’t face pressure and challenges?

  Zhu Haimei, the first batch of professional psychological counselors in China and a senior psychological teacher in Xuzhou No.1 Middle School, believes that from Xiaojun’s experience and various actions, he has the characteristics of "hollow man" in psychology, and he is confused about his future and doesn’t know what he can do or want to do. She suggested that Xiaojun should first find the goal of life and make up the course of "career planning"; Secondly, Xiaojun has a certain lack of self-awareness ability. With the help of professionals in psychological counseling institutions, he can "self-analyze" and understand what he wants in his heart and whether it is in line with his ability.

  Zhu Haimei also hopes that the parents of the children will boldly let go and let the children "take a trip."


  "I want to live a good life and work hard."

  After a few days in hospital, Xiaojun finally put down the game. He told Zi Niu news reporter that he fell down this time and he would get up again. "I won’t play games again." Xiaojun still hopes to find a job with a professional counterpart, but he also said that he had a problem with his mentality in the past and had too high expectations for himself. In the future, he will put down too many ideas and work as long as he is almost the same. He will not give up because of a little setback: "I want to live and work well."

  When Xiaojun said these words, Zi Niu news reporter noticed that Wang Li, whose mood had been calm, secretly wiped her tears behind her back.

Looking closely at "Made in China" through Shanghai Auto Show, US media: In the field of electric vehicles, China manufacturers play the leading role.

[Global Times Comprehensive Report] "The exhibition halls of dozens of China brand electric vehicles are surrounded by visitors, and the neighboring areas are full of foreign brands of gasoline-powered vehicles, but almost no one takes a look." The New York Times’s report on 20th described a strange phenomenon at the Shanghai Auto Show. As one of the largest auto shows in the world, this year’s Shanghai Auto Show is the first auto show of its kind in China since 2019, attracting more than 1,000 companies to participate. Throughout the world’s major auto shows, local enterprises are the absolute protagonists of the exhibition, and also represent the influence of a country’s auto industry on the world. With China’s car-making industry chain being pushed to the forefront of the world with the new energy revolution, the Shanghai Auto Show is becoming a showcase of "Made in China" in the automobile field. The New York Times reported that this year’s auto show showed a very clear signal: in the field of electric vehicles, manufacturers in China are playing the leading role.

China car companies became the focus at the Shanghai Auto Show. The picture shows the BYD booth displaying the dual-gun overcharge architecture platform. (vision china)

Independent brands are attractive.

The Global Times reporter saw at the auto show that compared with previous domestic auto shows, the self-owned brands participating in this year’s Shanghai Auto Show are more and more attractive, and the product prices are more and more "bold". Almost every company has launched models with prices as high as hundreds of thousands or even millions of yuan, which has attracted much attention.

BYD brought its high-end brand "Looking Up" to the U8, the first production model, with a pre-sale price of 1.098 million yuan. This new energy vehicle, which focuses on hard-core off-road, is based on two core technological achievements-the power system driven independently by four motors and the intelligent hydraulic body control system. Another brand of BYD Tengshi exhibited the first edition of the medium and large five-seat hunting SUV N7 and Tengshi D9. Weilai ushered in the appearance of the new ES6 and 2023 ET7 at the auto show. The prices of the above models are almost above 300,000 yuan.

Traditional car companies are not weak. Hongqi appeared in two new energy products-Hongqi E202 and Hongqi E001. SAIC exhibited more than 130 new cars from six vehicle manufacturers, of which new energy vehicles accounted for nearly half. Geely brings its krypton series products. Great Wall Motor exhibited new energy vehicles such as Haval Xiaolong MAX, Wei brand Lanshan DHT-PHEV, and tank 500 PHEV, as well as the 6×6 super off-road platform of the Great Wall Gun which can carry a variety of power. Chery brought the first high-end intelligent pure electric car E03 from Starway, and Changan Automobile brought the deep blue S7 and the deep blue SL03.

"Visitors to the Shanghai Auto Show are amazed at the China brand." German "Der Spiegel" magazine said on the 20th that China car companies, which were often laughed at in the past, have already caught up and are moving towards the leading position. China automobile brands participating in the auto show have never been as wide-ranging and high-quality as this year-no matter big companies like BYD, Geely, Great Wall and SAIC, or start-ups like Weilai, beautiful shapes, charming atmosphere and breakthrough technologies can be seen everywhere.

Global Times reporter observed that executives and engineers of multinational car companies also appeared on the booths of China car companies. They are very concerned about the cutting-edge electrification technology exhibited by China car companies. As soon as the reporter entered the 6.1 Hall where China brands gathered, he saw a foreign engineer carefully studying the products of a Chinese lidar company. At the Great Wall Motor booth next to it, the reporter witnessed a number of foreign exhibitors exchanging business cards with booth staff.

China’s electric vehicle industry chain is leading the world.

"Local manufacturers are overtaking German brands in the electric vehicle market in China." Germany’s "Daily" reported on the 20th that at the Shanghai Auto Show, Volkswagen continued to appear as the leader of the world’s largest auto market. However, on the opening day of the auto show on Tuesday, news came that had a far-reaching impact on the industry: in the China market, BYD, a China manufacturer, surpassed the traditional leader Volkswagen in the first quarter. In the opinion of experts, German automotive engineers have become focused on studying the gap size of parts and body adjustment because of their success in the past decades, and are unwilling to take the initiative to meet the changes. But a quarter of all new cars sold in China are electric cars, and this trend is still rising.

At this auto show, Japanese car companies such as Toyota, Honda and Nissan have released new models to attract consumers in China. The Japanese news agency said on the 18th that the popularity of electric vehicles among China car companies is high, while the presence of Japanese car companies, which started late in the field of electric vehicles, is declining, and it is approaching a critical moment.

Japan’s "Daily News" said on the 20th that Japanese car companies are struggling in the field of electric vehicles. In 2022, Toyota sold 10.48 million new cars, ranking first in the world, but only 20,000 electric vehicles were sold. Toyota’s share of electric vehicles in the world is only 0.3%, far inferior to Tesla and BYD. The most worrying thing is that Japanese cars are gradually regarded as "outdated" by China consumers. A 29-year-old office worker in Beijing said, "The durability of Japanese cars is good, but the intelligent service in the car is insufficient." "Daily News" said that Japanese car companies started late in the field of electric vehicles, which also affected the intelligence in the car.

"It turns out that we have always said that China’s auto industry’ wakes up early and gets up late’, but on the new track of electrification, especially intelligent electrification, China enterprises are innovative in the whole industry chain, and their actions are more rapid than those of foreign enterprises." Fu Yuwu, honorary chairman of China Automotive Engineering Society, told the Global Times reporter that overall, the whole industrial chain of electric vehicles in China is in the leading position in the world.

Professor Ferdinand Dudenhoff, director of the German Automobile Research Center (CAR), who is known as the "godfather of automobiles" in Germany, said in an interview with the Global Times on the 20th that the achievements and technologies exhibited by China enterprises at the Shanghai Auto Show were impressive. On the one hand, intelligent cockpit and interconnection, on the other hand, products related to autonomous driving, and then battery technology, the automobile world is changing much faster than some people think. China is playing an increasingly important role in market scale and technology.

Baidu Apollo held an automobile intelligent conference on the eve of Shanghai Auto Show, released a brand-new upgraded product matrix of driving chart, and released "Baidu Intelligent Driving Open White Paper", which opened four key capabilities for automobile enterprises. Also on the eve of the auto show, Tencent demonstrated its technology and product system in the field of "Che Yun Integration" on the technology open day. In terms of battery technology, Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited officially released condensed batteries during the auto show. It is understood that the energy density of the battery monomer can reach up to 500Wh/kg, which has the characteristics of high specific energy and high safety, and has mass production capacity within this year. Weilai launched a cooperative product with AR company Nreal to create an immersive cockpit entertainment experience space.

Zhang Xiang, an auto industry analyst in China, told the Global Times reporter that China is leading the global auto development trend, and there are few software in foreign cars, but there is a big market in China, and the software functions of new energy vehicles in China are generally more and richer than those in foreign countries. "In the past, the software of international car companies may be simple functions, but China’s car software can also integrate a variety of maps and entertainment software, which is also the contribution made by China car companies." Zhang Xiang analyzed this way.

Perspective of Industry Trend from Auto Show

The Global Times reporter observed at this auto show that under the blessing of "black technology" in software and hardware, new energy vehicles are showing stronger and stronger product strength and larger market space. Through this auto show, how do people from all walks of life view the future development trend of the new energy industry?

BYD said in its reply to the Global Times reporter that the first is that the market size of the industry will continue to expand. In the past three years, China New Energy Bus Station has achieved a spurt growth in the "double carbon" outlet, with an average penetration rate of 30% in the first quarter of this year, from 5% in 2020 to 15% in the previous year, and then to 26% last year, with a monthly penetration rate of 35% in March. The second is intelligent networking. In the future, new energy vehicles will be more intelligent and networked, and the combination of vehicles with emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence will bring more efficient, safer and smarter driving experience to human beings. The third is diversified development. In the future, the development of new energy vehicles will be more diversified, including new technologies such as pure electric power, hybrid power, hydrogen fuel power and extended range, which will promote the evolution of the automobile power market from different angles.

Li Bin, founder, chairman and CEO of Weilai, said: "I am full of confidence in the development of smart electric vehicle industry in China in 2023, and my confidence comes from the rapid recovery of China’s macro-economy and the improvement of user experience brought by the rapid progress of smart electric vehicle technology.".

Professor Heck Proff, director of the Department of Business Administration and International Automobile Management at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany, said in an interview with the Global Times on the 20th that the Shanghai Auto Show clearly showed that electrification and software are the two central themes of the current global automobile industry transformation. Without the remarkable skills in these two fields, no automobile manufacturer can exist independently for a long time, and China manufacturers have demonstrated that they have these skills in Shanghai.

  China news agency, Beijing, August 2nd (Reporter Huan Wang) Jacques, President of the International Olympic Committee? Rogge held his first press conference in the main press center of Beijing Olympic Games today. Apart from praising the Beijing Olympic Village, he also predicted that Asian sports would "wake up" in this Olympic Games.

  Rogge, who ended the one-day meeting of the IOC Executive Committee, came to the press conference and still looked radiant, waving to the media who had been waiting for a long time. The Executive Committee ended the discussion ahead of schedule today, which, in Rogge’s view, is a good start for this Olympic Games.

  Rogge, who attended the launching ceremony of the "Peace and Friendship Wall" in the Olympic Village on August 1st, was full of praise for this "first village on earth". "I am very fortunate to enter the Olympic Village and talk with Olympic athletes. They all think that this is the best Olympic Village in previous Olympic Games." Rogge recalled, "I myself have been in the Olympic Village since 1968, and the Beijing Olympic Village is very outstanding. This has also been recognized by national and regional Olympic committees and international individual sports federations. "

  When talking about sports achievements, Rogge predicted that Asian sports would "wake up" in this Olympic Games. He cited the figures of the Athens Olympic Games: "China won 32 gold medals, which was close to 36 in the United States, and Russian won 29 gold medals. This competition will be very interesting, because the host usually wins more gold medals and medals. China, South Korea, Japan and other Asian countries will present good medal figures, which is very exciting and expected. "

  Rogge specifically mentioned that some Iraqi athletes were allowed to participate in the Beijing Olympic Games at today’s Executive Committee meeting. "This also means that all 205 members of the International Olympic Committee will participate in this Olympic Games." The Beijing Olympic Games truly realized the great reunion of the Olympic family.

  "A week before the opening of the Athens Olympic Games, we were still worried about whether the competition venues could be built on time, and the Beijing Olympic venues began to hold test competitions one year in advance." Rogge once again emphasized the IOC’s affirmation of Beijing’s Olympic preparations. "I am very happy to see that the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee has fulfilled its promise when bidding, and this Olympic Games will be very successful."

What is the significance of allowing foreign investors to set up entertainment venues in China according to law?

  Recently, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued the Notice on Adjusting the Examination and Approval of Entertainment Places and Internet Service Business Places.

  According to the Notice, according to the Decision of the State Council on Amending and Abolishing Some Administrative Regulations,Foreign investors are allowed to set up entertainment venues in China according to law, and restrictions on the proportion of foreign investment are abolished.Foreign investors applying to engage in business activities of entertainment places shall apply to the provincial administrative department of culture and tourism, and the application materials, establishment conditions and procedures are consistent with those of domestic capital.

  In addition, according to Article 58 of the Law of People’s Republic of China (PRC) on the Protection of Minors,Schools and kindergartens shall not set up entertainment places or business places for Internet service. The distance and measurement method between kindergartens and entertainment places and Internet service business places shall be specified by the provincial administrative department of culture and tourism in combination with the actual situation.

  Before the implementation of the Law on the Protection of Minors in People’s Republic of China (PRC), entertainment places and Internet service places have been set up around kindergartens. When the examination and approval authorities handle the renewal or change of business licenses, they should strictly follow the relevant laws and regulations, and earnestly implement the legal requirements that entertainment places and Internet service places should not be set up around kindergartens.

  Expert interpretation

  Yong Yang, a researcher at the Institute of Intellectual Property Law and Policy, East China University of Political Science and Law:The country has also further reformed and opened up to the outside world, giving enterprises more independent rights.At the same time, it is also considered that creating a better business environment and giving foreign investors a national investment treatment will still play a role in promoting and promoting the entire entertainment market. Through the opening up of foreign capital, the market activity will be further improved, which will enrich the spiritual and cultural life of ordinary people and bring a good impetus and prosperity.

  In the adjustment that entertainment places and Internet service business places are not allowed around schools and kindergartens, the Notice points out that the distance and measurement method between schools, kindergartens and business places shall be made by the provincial cultural and tourism administrative departments in light of the actual situation. Researcher Yong Yang also gave a related explanation.

  Researcher, Institute of Intellectual Property Law and Policy, East China University of Political Science and Law, ShanghaiYong Yang:Every city has a different volume, including Xuhui District in Shanghai, where there are 99 schools in more than 50 square kilometers. I think the interpretation of "periphery" should be given to the local cultural and tourism bureau according to the actual situation, which should not only ensure the prosperity of the market, but also maintain the legitimate rights and interests of the original enterprises, and at the same time effectively protect the rights and interests related to minors.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is a love letter to China’s Kung Fu movies.

"Kung Fu Panda 4" was released on March 22nd, and the panda A Bao returned to the big screen after 8 years’ violation.

The animated film Kung Fu Panda 4, co-directed by mike mitchell and Stephanie Ma stine, was released on March 22nd. This film is the fourth in a series of Kung Fu Panda movies, and the panda A Bao has returned to the big screen after eight years. In the English version, the comedian Jack Black once again returned to be the naive kung fu master Po. Bo Huang, Yang Mi and Rulu were the Chinese voices of Po, Xiaozhen and "The Phantom of the Demon" in Kung Fu Panda 4 respectively.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is a rare animated film that can capture the fourth episode. The Kung Fu Panda series, which has spanned nearly 16 years, has captured an amazing box office of about $2 billion in the world. The lovely panda Po is the protagonist of this legendary series. He shows the profound truth and universal concepts about self-discovery, overcoming fear and teamwork with stories full of oriental thoughts, which makes the series accumulate a very deep audience around the world. From the first movie, Kung Fu Panda series began to perfectly blend comedy, action and true feelings.

"I am a big fan of this series, and Kung Fu Panda is also one of the best series of movies ever. What excites me most is to explore its unique combination of comedy and action. Especially as a kung fu movie fan, there are extremely wonderful action fights in the story of this movie, and at the same time, comedy and animation are mixed together. It is a perfect opportunity for me. " Michelle, co-director of Kung Fu Panda 4, told the Beijing News that there will be more action scenes in Kung Fu Panda 4, because it is a love letter for China Kung Fu movies. "I like all kung fu movies, such as movies starring Bruce Lee, Kung Fu directed by Stephen Chow, Yuan Heping’s" Young Huang Feihong’s Iron Horse "and so on. We found inspiration in these movies, absorbed the essence and put them into this movie. For example, at the beginning of the film, Po raised his finger, which is a classic action of Bruce Lee. Of course, we must pay tribute to Bruce Lee. Another example is a landlady who is a powerful and skilled warrior. She has curly hair on her head, which seems to pay tribute to Stephen Chow’s movie Kung Fu (the chartered woman played by Yuan Qiu). "

Kung Fu Panda 4 has scenes to pay tribute to Bruce Lee’s classic movements and the rented woman in the film Kung Fu.

Simple Po wants to be a spiritual leader.

With Kung Fu Panda 4 leading the series into a new chapter, Po’s story has also taken a gripping turn, guiding him to embark on an inner journey about growth and change. With extraordinary courage and kung fu tricks of "punching the old master to death", the Dragon Warrior Po defeated some of the best kung fu villains in the world in the first three thrilling adventures. This time, fate summoned him to cultivate his body and mind. To put it bluntly, he was appointed as the spiritual leader of Heping Valley because of his simple nature, but this incident immediately triggered several obvious problems: First, Po knew nothing about how to be a spiritual leader, which was equivalent to letting him, who loved food, "eat birds and eat blood"; Secondly, Po should find a new Dragon Warrior as soon as possible, and train him to take up his post smoothly before he can retire and become a lofty leader, which is a process that needs thorough understanding and acceptance for him. To make matters worse, the powerful evil mage, the Phantom Queen (voiced by Viola Davis), has recently reappeared in the Jianghu. She is a petite lizard that can be transformed into the appearance of any animal, regardless of its size. After the Phantom of the Opera, those greedy little eyes are fixed on the staff of wisdom in Po’s hands. With it, she will be able to reconvene all the villains who have been hit by Po in the spirit world.

In "Kung Fu Panda 4", Po’s new partner is the cunning and witty thief Shahu Xiaozhen.

Therefore, Po is in urgent need of help, and then he meets the cunning and witty thief Xiaozhen (voiced by Awkwafina). This sand fox annoys Po all over, but her ability will help a lot. In order to protect the Valley of Peace from being trampled by the clutches of the Phantom of the Opera, tell it to the judge, who had frequent jokes, had to fight side by side. In this process, Po will find that unexpected places also meet heroes. Michelle said that in addition to being black and white, Po’s thoughts are black and white, and there are only good people and bad people in his mind. But this time, the newly added character Xiao is really a good and evil character. As a thief, she is still kind-hearted, which makes Po in a dilemma for a while. I don’t know if I can trust her. In the initial discussion, the production team found that Po rarely left the Valley of Peace, so they decided to take him out of the comfort zone and come to the new environment of Juniper City to get to know Xiaozhen. "We want to design such a movie, in which Xiaozhen and Po represent the city and the countryside respectively. Po from the countryside came to the big city for the first time, so we basically created a new york Times Square in an imaginary ancient China world, where all kinds of animals are in groups, and the number is more than you have ever seen before, including rhinoceros, sheep, wild boar, domestic pigs, goats, crocodiles and bears." In Kung Fu Panda 4, the scenes visited by Po and Xiaozhen are broader than those in the previous work. Michelle said, "This magnificent world has caused Po to change, making him realize that he may be ignorant. As he explores this vast new world, he also comes into contact with all kinds of people.Accepted the concept that the world is not only black and white. This journey made Po wise and saw that there were more than just good and evil sides in the world. "

A team of more than 500 people creates a multicultural perspective

The production team took the time to polish the story and characters of this film carefully, and also paid attention to the standards set by previous films. "This movie has been separated from the last one for eight years, and we have to live up to our high expectations. The first three movies have been a great success, and the fans of Kung Fu Panda have been growing from the first one, constantly crossing the age group. Our goal is to create a movie that can resonate with men, women and children. It not only pays tribute to the memories and legends of the previous work, but also introduces new, interesting and exciting elements. We want to strive to achieve a balance between the two. " Michelle introduced that in the process of cooperation in finalizing the story, the team of Kung Fu Panda 4 created a vibrant and creative environment: "About 500 people contributed to this film, bringing diversified perspectives to the story, sharing the same opinions and goals with everyone, making the finalization process exciting, and allowing us to introduce new ideas on the basis of retaining the styles and feelings of the first three films."

There are about 500 people behind Kung Fu Panda 4, who come from all over the world.

Stephanie Ma stine, the co-director of this film, is a Chinese-American female directors. In the final stage of the production of Kung Fu Panda 4, the complex culture in which she grew up also brought a lot of fun and knowledge to the whole team. "My family comes from China, so I will teach the crew to play mahjong, a game that my father once joked would lead me astray," she said. "But now I’m here, taking my colleagues to enjoy the fun of this China game. From the peaceful valley with rural customs to the bustling city of juniper, we have been trying to capture this extensive culture in the movies. Our attention to small details, such as whether a food is authentic or not, has created a sense of richness for the world of Kung Fu Panda, which is constantly resonating with audiences around the world. " Michelle and the production team pay great attention to realism, and the final product is a love letter they wrote to China culture, martial arts and the whole series of Kung Fu Panda. He said, "Since the release of Kung Fu Panda 3, the world has improved a lot, and we have also noticed these changes, and tried to add more diversity to our actors, crews and later stages, and even Kung Fu has evolved. Many of our animators and artists still clearly remember how they watched Kung Fu Panda when they were young, and they were all very excited that they could contribute to the series of movies they liked since childhood in this new work. "

Behind the scenes

1. In order to capture the real kungfu movements, Sean sexton, director of animation roles with background in Taekwondo and Aikido, integrated the realistic mechanism into Po’s movements. sexton’s team cooperated with a stunt director and several performers to shoot many accurate reference shots for animation.

2. For the inspiration of camera following, animated characters and action scenes, the production team invited stunt coordinator and martial artist Don Ty Theerathada as the kung fu consultant for this film. Theerathada and his stunt team used to be responsible for the fight scene design and arrangement of many action movies. In addition, the stunt team also photographed the scene reference for the animators, who used props designed to imitate the characters’ costumes, costumes, horns, tails and other characteristics to study the natural movements of animals.

3. In the process of making Kung Fu Panda series, animation technology has also made great progress. These technological advances have achieved dynamic camera following, enhanced lighting and unlimited facial feature control for Kung Fu Panda 4. However, despite the technological progress, the animators still combine the old-school and new-school technologies to create traditional hand-drawn pencil drafts for action scenes.

The big villain in Kung Fu Panda 4, the Phantom of the Demon Queen.

4. The film adopts the opinions of Dr Stuart Sumaida, a biologist and vertebrate paleontologist, to help shape the Phantom of the Phantom and the Queen and her army of Komodo dragons. The physiology, movement and independent rotation of eyes of these characters have been carefully designed.

5. It is a complicated process to shape the transformation after the Phantom of the Opera, which is inspired by movies such as The Ring of the Rings at Midnight, X-Men, Nightcrawler and Little Yellow Man with Big Eyes. In order to pursue the details of the transformation, this character is bound with more than 8,000 control points. In order to solve the clothing problem during the transformation of the Phantom of the Opera, the design is adjusted to seamlessly inhale the clothing into the skin.

Welcome the audience to watch Kung Fu Panda 4 at Dolby Cinema in Belle Palace and enjoy the ultimate audio-visual experience.

More than 7.6 million vehicles are rare! The largest recall of your car in domestic automobile history may also be included.

  CCTV News:In September, several major auto companies, such as Volkswagen and General Motors, successively announced the recall of some products.Within half a month, the total number of cars recalled by several major car companies reached more than 7.6 million, which is considered to be the largest number of car recalls in a short period of time.

  On September 14, AQSIQ announced that Volkswagen includesImported Volkswagen, FAW-Volkswagen, SAIC Volkswagen recall partImported Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, SkodaBrand and domestic Volkswagen and Audi brands, totaling more than 4.86 million vehicles.

  On September 15, GM included imports.Saab and OpelBrand, as well as domesticChevrolet and BuickBrand, announced a total recall of nearly 2.53 million cars.

  On September 25th, Guangqi Honda recalled some domestic products.Accord, Fit, FengfanWaiting for cars, totaling more than 245,000.

  The airbags produced by Takada Corporation of Japan are unsafe.

  It is understood that such a huge number of recalls point to a Japanese supplier — — Takada company, because the airbag it is equipped with for the automobile factory is not safe.

  It is understood that the reasons for the recall of Volkswagen, GM and Guangqi Honda include: the front airbag of the driver’s seat or the co-driver’s seat of some vehicles is equipped with an ammonium nitrate gas generator without desiccant produced by Takada Company. When the airbag is deployed, these gas generators may be abnormally damaged, causing debris to fly out, hurting people in the car, which poses a safety hazard. Several major car companies have said that they will replace airbags for vehicles within the recall range free of charge to eliminate potential safety hazards.

  Changan Ford, BMW Brilliance and many other car companies have previously announced the recall of some vehicles. The Takada airbag incident was in China.It involves more than 30 vehicle companies, involving about 20 million vehicles..

  Expert: the problem airbag is like a "throat cutter"

  Problem airbags have potential safety hazards, which may hurt people inside the car. What is going on? The authoritative third-party automobile safety inspection agency in China — — The chief expert of China Automotive Technology Research Center made an interpretation.

  In the test, the broken metal is ejected from the inferior airbag, just like a throat cutter, which directly stabs the dummy’s face and neck. The expert brought an airbag installed at the steering wheel to demonstrate on the spot: "The airbag is folded in the steering wheel. When the vehicle collides, the ignition device quickly ignites the combustion improver in the gas generator, and the energy released by the combustion improver quickly passes through the dense exhaust holes on the gas generator, so that the airbag expands and expands immediately."

  Experts pointed out that the gas generator of Takada airbag is filled with unstable ammonium nitrate combustion improver. Under the condition of high temperature and high humidity, the medium of ammonium nitrate has changed from flake to powder. Therefore, in the process of explosion, a larger explosion equivalent is produced, which causes the shell of the gas generator to rupture.

  Experts pointed out that when a vehicle collides, the airbag must be filled and deployed quickly in a short time, and its deployment speed is about 300 kilometers per hour. With such a fast speed, we must strictly ensure the safety of personnel.

  First, the airbag must be matched with the seat belt.

  Second, it is forbidden to put some ornaments, perfume bottles and so on in the area where the airbag is deployed.

  The airbags produced by Takada Corporation of Japan have caused many casualties around the world. Takada Corporation paid huge fines and compensation for this, and the company also filed for bankruptcy protection in June this year.

  Since 2008, after the first fatal accident occurred in airbags produced by Takada Company of Japan, by the end of February 2017, nearly 200 people had been killed or injured.

  In 2014, Takada Airbag began to launch a global large-scale recall.

  In January, 2017, Takada admitted that the hidden airbag would be fatal for 15 years, and agreed to pay a fine of $25 million, plus $125 million in compensation for the victims’ families and $850 million to pay the recall cost of the automobile manufacturer.

  As of May 2017, 19 automobile manufacturers, including Honda, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla, have recalled up to 120 million vehicles in the global market due to safety hazards of Takada airbags.

  In June 2017, Takada filed for bankruptcy protection.

  Expert: more attention should be paid to safety in parts concentration.

  China Automobile Industry Association pointed out that globalization has accelerated the monopoly trend of large-scale parts enterprises, which has both advantages and disadvantages. Large-scale parts enterprises will strengthen research and development, and drive or assist vehicle enterprises to promote technological progress. The disadvantage is that once the parts are too concentrated and there is a safety problem, it will have an impact on the global automobile industry.

[China Today] Marathon is not easy. What are the hidden worries behind the "war of words"

— — Issue 30 & mdash; —

On November 18th, He Yinli of China missed the championship in the Suzhou Marathon.

Because netizens questioned the setting of competition links, it triggered a network "war of words".

Why use it"You"?

Because in recent years, the marathon "war of words" has happened every year!

What are the "war of words" triggered by these marathons that you still remember?

Marathon was originally a place name in Greece. Because of a war, it has become a very popular long-distance running event in the modern world. Let’s take a look at the marathon that was played "bad" in those years.

Event: A marathon paralyzed a city.

Time: 2015 Location: Haikou City

The 2015 Haikou R&F Marathon attracted more than 7,000 participants (photo by Huang Yibing)

The 2015 R&F Haikou Marathon was held in Wanlv Park, Haikou City from 8: 00 to 14: 00 on Sunday, January 11th.

The race was not over yet. At about 12 o’clock that day, a report on Hainan Daily’s official WeChat "Haikou Today, A Marathon Paralyzes a City" pushed the marathon to the forefront.

The article quoted various "fancy spits" of Haikou citizens, which were reprinted by People’s Daily and China Youth Daily.

Can an enterprise buy a city’s transportation if it has money?

The question thrown by the article aroused great enthusiasm of netizens, and there was a wide-ranging debate on whether the city needed to hold a marathon and whether the citizens needed a marathon.

According to Xinhua News Agency, the Haikou Municipal Government finally admitted that there was a shortage of work, and the incident gradually subsided.

The reporter found that 2015 is not simple, and it can be called the "first year" of China Marathon.

Because in this year, the marathon officially began to be commercialized: since 2015, the Chinese Athletics Association has completely cancelled the approval of marathon events in accordance with the requirements of decentralization.

According to the statistics of China Athletics Association, in 2010, there were 13 marathon events registered nationwide, and in 2015, it reached 134.

On October 18, 2015, on this day alone, 27 marathon road races were held simultaneously in the country.

This year, the marathon has covered four municipalities directly under the central government and 79 cities in 23 provinces and autonomous regions. For the first time, the total number of people participating in the event exceeded one million, reaching 1.5 million.

Event: Sudden death of "substitute runner"

Time: 2016 Location: Xiamen

18,000 contestants from 28 countries and regions participated in the competition. (Image from Xiamen Net)

At 8: 00 am on December 10, 2016, the 2016 Xiamen (Haicang) International Half Marathon started.

A scene that shocked the audience appeared near the finish line: two players fell to the ground nearby and died after being rescued.

Four days later, netizens were shocked again: one of the victims was "resurrected"!

Because the organizing Committee issued a notice saying that one of the contestants who died suddenly was a "runner". On the same day, Wu Ming, the head of the office of the Organizing Committee of Xiamen International Marathon, announced in an interview with the media that there were still 30 contestants cheating, 28 of whom were "runners".

The sudden death has just triggered netizens’ doubts about the enthusiasm of the whole people for horse racing in that year, but there is a more outrageous scene in the "runner": in the 2016 Shenzhen Marathon, two of the top ten women’s team winners actually had Adam’s apple and were verified as men.

According to statistics, between 2015 and 2017, 14 people died unexpectedly while participating in domestic marathon events, and sudden death near the finish line accounted for 80%.

The physical quality, moral quality, fairness and openness of the participants have aroused the enduring concern of netizens about the marathon: the marathon is not what you want to run, you can run if you want to run!

Event: The organizer owes the bonus.

Time: 2017 Location: Jilin

In October 2017, Jilin Marathon participants Kong Jie and Mou Zhenhua voiced through the media that their bonuses were unpaid for four months.

According to the official website of Jilin Marathon, Kong Jie, a full-time female athlete, was ranked fifth in China at that time, ranking eighth in total; Mou Zhenhua, who was selected by the men in the whole process, was ranked third among domestic players and eighth in total. The results of the competition are true and effective.

In fact, the arrears of marathon runners’ bonuses have long existed.

The 2015 Linyi Marathon caused social concern due to the arrears of bonuses for African athletes. It was not until April 30, 2016 that all of them were distributed, and the half-year-old Linyi Marathon "unpaid wages" storm came to an end.

At the 2017 China Marathon Annual Meeting, documents such as "2017 China Marathon Annual Work Report" and "2017 China Marathon Big Data Analysis Report" issued by China Athletics Association showed that:

China hosted 1102 events in 2017.

The number of marathons increased to 4.98 million, and the number of marathons per 10,000 people was 4.27.

The marathon covers 234 cities in 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, including Tibet, with an industrial scale of 70 billion.

With the intervention of relevant departments in Jiangsu Province, the controversy caused by the Suzhou Marathon in 2018 gradually cooled down.

Overseas network published a commentator’s article saying that the marathon with tens of thousands of people participating at every turn is not just a long-distance running, it is the "touchstone" of the city’s comprehensive governance capacity. For the China Marathon, which has just started, it is especially necessary for practitioners and event organizers to take care of its growth with professional management and operation.

So, what kind of image will the marathon appear in the public eye next time?
