Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro
ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦
According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event
上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo
rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.
“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦
During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l
上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.
Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes－with Ca
ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信
hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.
“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦
form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”
Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr
上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed
earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo
ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid
er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine－all made of gold－all de
monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.
Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p
ieces depicting celestial deities playing Chinese lutes remind visitors of the popularity of music at that ti
上海乌托邦me, while an arched plaque also tells people of the Tubo people’s admiration for the phoenix.
The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s
cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ
ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”
To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing
, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419
In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens
上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o
fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.
A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信
To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo
cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e
上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co
nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.
With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信
ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l
ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419
“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef
上海419品茶微信ore the season for picking chongcao, we train the villagers and ask them to fill in the pits afte
r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa
ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.
“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419
much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.
As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信
g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.
To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem
ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.
“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives
tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信
sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.
After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub
sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak
es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat
erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b
usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

The program is initiated in response to increasingly prominent mental problems among the elderly over the recent years, according to the NHC.
In wake of urbanization and the acceleration of aging proc

SSGKC is designed to cover a total greenfield area of 123 sq km. But about half of the area has been earmarked for urban use, during the 15 to 20 year de

Rural areas offer more consumption potential, according to experts.
“The country’s exports in the first five months (of 2019) had been increasing but at a slower pace… in the future, the trade surp
