If you were to attend a motivational speaking event, you would hear a lot of personal success stories. Take the book ‘The Secret’ – one of the biggest selling inspirational texts of modern times.  This book is packed with success story after success story in order to reinforce the message of positive affirmations, visualisation techniques and the laws of the attraction. If an individual is booked in to attend a motivational workshop on weight loss, it is highly likely that they themselves wish to lose weight.
Success stories also offer guidance – they provide insight into the methods employed to reach the common goal that the audience members share. As one of six members of an ancient architecture restoration team, Li Changyun has already spent eight months collaborating with his colleagues on reassembling an old, two-story residence that was removed from its original site in a rural village years ago.
Before working on the centuries-old Yuan De House, which literarily means house of great virtue, the team reassembled four such old residences in the private Anhui Yuanquan Hui-Culture Museum, located in Shushan district of Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province. Li, in his 60s, plays a key role on the team, which also includes a mason, a bricklayer, a painter and two others with carving and main structure expertise.
Like most of the traditional residences in southern Anhui province and a small part of northern Jiangxi province, which was known as Huizhou region before 1949, the house was mainly built with wooden components. Li, a master carpenter for almost four decades, said that repairing ancient buildings is not an easy task, partly because many of the original components are missing or broken. Since the original components were all made by hand, almost no modern machines could be used in preparing the replicas.
On Li's team, five of the six members are older than 60, with the remaining member being just 29. The old Huizhou homes, which in ancient times were mostly owned by merchants, were known for their exquisite wood, brick and stone carvings.
Xuan added that about 70 percent of the details of a Huizhou ancient house depended on the owner, instead of the craftsman.
Xuan pays each of the craftsmen 300 yuan ($45.60) per working day, but he never urges them to hurry up, since "for cultural relics restoration, haste makes waste", he said. Xuan often brings Li and his colleagues to such places as Huangshan, which was known as a part of the Huizhou region, in order to give them more profound knowledge of Huizhou-style ancient residences. Xuan, 58, started to collect components of ancient Huizhou buildings in 1981 and then began to buy whole houses in the next decade. The Huizhou region has been known throughout China partly for the success of its merchants in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). When Xuan saw the house, it was in critical condition and no longer suitable for habitation. He has seized the opportunity to buy many components used for restoring homes, such as doors and windows, since the 1980s.
Dun Lun Tang House is a Huizhou-style house reassembled by the ancient architecture restoration team with the Anhui Yuanquan Hui-Culture Museum in Hefei, Anhui province. The poet (AD 712-770), whose position in Chinese literature is likened to that of William Shakespeare in English literature, came to Chengdu as a war refugee in 759. The next year, the native of Gongxian in Henan province built a thatched cottage on the grounds of the present-day museum and spent most of the time there before leaving Sichuan in 765, penning 240 of his existing 1,400 poems.
Since then, Liu has joined five times in the periodic rebuilding and repairing of the celebrated house, other thatched cottages and pavilions at the museum. When only repairs are needed, Liu uses a bamboo pole to pry up the top layer of old thatch to find where it has become thin, allowing leaks. Liu started working to build and repair thatched cottage roofs at 13, as an apprentice to Su Yongcai, who also lived in Fuchang village in Pixian county and was 18 years older. His skill as a roof builder and repairer enabled him to earn extra money to rear his son and two daughters.
Zhou Lichun, 49, Liu's co-worker, who also hails from Pixian county, said there were once many cottages outside the grounds of the Du Fu Thatched Cottage Museum. Rapid urbanization has eliminated the cottages beyond the museum and in many parts of the countryside near Chengdu.

Luo Haiyun, 43, the Sansha branch chief of Chinese banking giant Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), told China Daily that the services provided on the island can now match those on offer anywhere.
In the central part of Beijing Road, a major commercial hub on the island, stands the well-adorned ICBC branch, which is currently the only one that has been officially put into use. The bank is now assisting fishermen's plans to shift to other businesses, such as restaurants and processing seafood, and the services include the installment of point-of-sale machines and loans.
Partly due to increased business and growing local demand, Beijing Road is also home to ATM machines or 24-hour automatic banking outposts of other banks. Close by will be the branch of another Chinese banking giant - the Bank of China, which is waiting to be officially inaugurated after approval for its operation was announced earlier this year.
Unlike the crowded halls of a typical banking branch in more densely populated mainland cities, the ICBC Sansha branch is a picture of order and efficiency. Thanks to the small population and good public security climate, the branch does not even need a guard to maintain order. Before telecommunication facilities were in place on the island, the staff had to contend with the burden of missing their families and friends. Now 4G signals and broadband Internet access have covered the island, and the branch office has access to the internal network of ICBC in 2011. Ships, once a rare sight, now shuttle frequently between Yongxing and Hainan islands, bringing every conceivable modern-day convenience as well as new staff. Starting at the branch in January, 2012, Luo said he spent, on average, more than 200 days every year on the island, but thanks to the increasing number of ships dropping anchor there, he could enjoy more time with family members. The veteran banking manager believes online banking is the future and many of his customers are already availing of this service. Sansha People's Hospital, the only full-scale medical institution on remote Yongxing Island, is meeting its increasing medical needs with a little help from its friends. Given limited medical capacity, the hospital conducts preliminary treatments for patients requiring further care before they are transferred to major hospitals on Hainan Island.
To help meet the growing medical demands, young doctors and nurses have been temporarily transferred from Hainan Island to work at the hospital. These young medics, including nurse Li Chunhong, 33, generally stay for about six months before returning to Hainan. One of the tasks for Li and her medical colleagues is to introduce the islanders to the correct method of using antibiotics. The hospital, built in the 1980s, has developed rapidly in recent years and the three-story building has an outpatient department as well as wards and rooms for those requiring an overnight stay. A new program providing more medical equipment, financed by the central government, is likely to be in place before Sansha celebrates its fourth birthday in July, according to the city government. The hospital has become a medical hub and provider of medicine to other islands and reefs nearby. Huang Hongbo, chief of the resident committee on nearby Bei Island, dropped by the hospital for medicine to fight a heavy cold. Niu Mu, 30, a male doctor who previously worked in Haikou, said the first batch of medical staff that arrived in the 1980s endured a range of difficulties, such as a lack of electricity, medicine, running water and sometimes even food was not too abundant. Li said that even though the island is small, "we are all very satisfied with what we have and we believe it is a great honor to serve the island dwellers". The professor of marketing and innovation at Britain's Warwick Business School says brands of the power and reach of Apple give companies breathing space to do research and development. Wang, who was speaking at the Kerry Hotel in Beijing on one of her many annual visits to her native China, says the lack of global brands, not just in technology but in almost every sphere, was a real problem for the world's second-largest economy.
She cites that there were no Chinese brands in the Interbrand top 100 best global brands survey in 2015. She believes the lack of brands is undermining the country's technological efforts and achievements even though it overtook the United States and Japan as the world's largest filer of patents in 2012.
The major question though is how far China - once light years behind at the time of reform and opening up in the late 1970s - has to go in catching up with the West in terms of technology. Her father was branded a "landlord" and lost his job at the height of the "cultural revolution (1966-76)", which meant the family was sent to the remote southwest Chinese province of Yunnan to a labor camp for intellectuals.
When the universities reopened in 1978 she was accepted by Xi'an University of Technology at just 16 to study engineering. She then went on to study management science at Tianjin University before being accepted on scholarship under a technology cooperation scheme between the British Council and the Chinese government to study in the UK.
So in 1988, she arrived at Warwick University to study for a doctorate in marketing and has lived in the UK ever since.
She went on to teach at John Moores University in Liverpool and after a spell at Sussex university in Brighton went back to Warwick University, where her specialization is a combination of marketing and innovation.
Along with others such as Peter Williamson at Judge Business School at Cambridge University, she is pre-eminent in combining these two disciplines. Wang, who is engaging but with a steely determination, also specializes in Chinese marketing on the advice of Robin Wensley, the former dean of Warwick Business School.
She says that it was a new subject in China because in the 1970s there wasn't even a word for it. Wang has been quite evangelical in trying to get across the message in China itself that brands and marketing are important. She says when China first began to rapidly develop, many Chinese companies found their brands were killed almost at birth by Western companies. Wang, who has held a number of posts at Chinese universities, including Sun Yat-sen, Tongji and Tsinghua, says the problem many Chinese brands face today is the negative association attached with being from China. She, however, believes Chinese companies such as Alibaba, Tencent and Huawei have made huge strides.
Chinese infrastructure companies are also moving from markets such as Africa, where they are now well established, to Europe to be involved in major projects such as HS2. The exhibition at Duoyunxuan Art Center showcases rare photographs like this one, in addition to artifacts including the clothes and daily utensils used by the sisters. There has never been a trio of sisters more famous in China than the Soongs, and their contributions to the country and the war-time efforts have now been immortalized in a unique exhibition named "The Soong Sisters: Special Memories".
The exhibition, which occupies 2,500 square meters at the Duoyunxuan Art Center, debuted on April 28 and will run till July 31. The 300 exhibits on show, which comprises original documents, photographs, video recordings, clothing, daily utensils and artworks, were collected from both sides of the Taiwan Straits.
The three women - Ai-ling (1888-1973), Ching-ling (1893-1981) and Mei-ling (1898-2003) - are well-known for their key roles in China's political scene throughout the 20th century.
While Mei-ling and Ai-ling were ardent supporters of the Kuomintang (KMT), Ching-ling was steadfast in her Communism beliefs.
In 1940, when the Japanese occupied the capital city of Nanjing, the three reunited in Chongqing and established the Chinese Industrial Cooperatives. Following the fall of the Kuomintang in 1948, Mei-ling and Ai-ling moved to Taiwan with their family, while Ching-ling stayed in the Chinese mainland.
The Soong sisters were born to American-educated Methodist minister Charles Soong and all three of them attended Wesleyan College in Georgia.
Mei-ling left Wesleyan College and later graduated from Wellesley College in Massachusetts. In the 1930s, she and her husband Chiang initiated the New Life Movement, combining Confucianism with Christianity, and encouraged self-cultivation among the Chinese people.
When the war broke out, she initiated a welfare project to establish schools for orphans of Chinese soldiers and referred to these children as her "warphans".
Mei-ling also played an active role in the political scene and was the English translator, secretary and advisor to her husband Chiang. In 1943, Mei-ling became the first Chinese national and only the second woman to make a public address to both houses of the US congress, speaking about the Chinese people's determination to fight against the Japanese invaders.
In 1995, she made a rare public appearance when she attended a reception held on Capitol Hill in her honor as part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The original crimson dress and silk shawl that Mei-ling wore at this reception are among the rare exhibits, alongside historical photographs of her 1943 lectures in the US.
Hau adds that he remembers Mei-ling as a "warm and friendly lady, who treated us like her own children" and noted that she would often crack jokes and evoke much laughter at banquets. Another significant war-related artifact at the exhibition is the medal that Ching-ling received from the Kuomintang government in recognition for her contributions during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression. Xiao added that the Soong sisters are fine examples of the fusion of Chinese and Western cultures who have made a significant impact on the generations of men and women after them.
Ching-ling or Mei-ling did not have any offspring while Ai-ling was survived by two sons and two daughters.
1890: Charles Soong started a family with wife Ni Kwei-tseng and their first daughter was named Ai-ling. 1894: Charlie Soong met with Dr Sun Yat-sen and became a supporter of the latter's cause to overthrow the Manchurian regime. 1907: Ching-ling and Mei-ling followed their eldest sister to the US to study at Wesleyan College. 1925: Dr Sun died and Ching-ling was elected to the Kuomintang (KMT) Central Executive Committee. 1939: Ching-ling founded the China Defense League, a fund-raising entity for the Chinese Communists.
1981: Ching-ling died in Beijing, just two weeks after she was named Honorary Chairwoman of the People's Republic of China. For decades, photographer Pang Xiaowei has been shooting black-and-white portraits of Chinese celebrities, from Olympic gold medal winners to singers and film stars.
Pang started to snap celebrities in the movie business in 2002 to honor the 100th anniversary of China's film industry. Most did not know Pang before friends introduced them, and he often only had three to five minutes to get his shot. The difficulty of photographing an actor or actress is that they don't know how to be themselves in front of camera, says Pang, who was an actor in the theater for 10 years before taking up photography at age 30.
He says he always loved taking photos for his friends, but only found his calling after seeing a solo show by Ansel Adams, a photographer from the United States known for his works in black and white. After the movie actor series, Pang was touched by Beijing's excitement during the 2008 Olympics and so began a Games champion series, which included 186 Chinese gold medal winners. It seemed like an impossible task, he recalls, because many of them lived abroad and out of the public eye. Fan Di'an, head of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, describes Pang's photos as a process of using film to reveal a person's inner self. Pang is now working on a Peking Opera series, and for the first time will create portraits of well-known performers in color, although he will still produce a black-and-white edition. He says Placido Domingo, the Spanish tenor, loved the Peking Opera photos he gave him as a gift when the two met in Beijing last year.
In the late-1990s, the "weblog" (mercifully shortened to "blog" early in its incarnation) vastly changed the way people grappled with the emergence of the internet, particularly in the West.
Fast-forward two decades and a new force has undeniably taken hold of the modern internet: social media.


Nowhere is this more pronounced in scale than in China, whose 688 million internet users is more than double the population of America. How does this affect the realm of fashion, particularly as big brands look to engage with the world's largest market? By posting photos and discussing their sense of style, the most followed users are considered to be powerful "key opinion leaders" who can make or break trends - and it's little wonder that most brands are clamouring to collaborate. Many Western fashion bloggers have tended to focus on themselves, generally on their personal style through a standalone blog or via daily selfies on platforms such as Instagram; they're often well-connected in the industry, too. But who are these powerful digital influencers, who have millions eagerly awaiting their daily posts? A relative newcomer to the fashion community, Fujian Province-born Fang Yimin was initially a political reporter and then a film reporter at Nanfang Daily.
Many people say you are a fashion blogger, but others think you are more like the "we media". What do you think about the trend for traditional media practitioners to transform into fashion bloggers?
I think there are advantages for media practitioners to be fashion bloggers, because we know how media operates and we write well - we know what our readers are interested in.
One of the most influential fashion bloggers in China, Ye Si, better known as Gogoboi, is a front-row fixture renowned for his witty commentary. Actually, I think what I am writing is not a novel or prose; it's not a literary creation, so I don't need inspiration.
Apart from reading press releases, how do you ensure you know the biggest news in the industry every day? Among all your posts, what is the breakdown of paid promotional articles and hard-core fashion reviews? Flamboyant Beijing-born fashion icon Han Huohuo (huo means "fire") worked for the Chinese editions of Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire.
Several years ago, Scott Schuman's photo of you on his famous blog The Sartorialist ended up all over the internet, helping fuel your rise to fame.
Peter Xu is considered a "key opinion leader" in the Chinese fashion scene; a stylist, magazine columnist, TV host and a former rapper, the Jiangsu Province-born entrepreneur, worked as marketing manager for L'Ori??i??al in Shanghai, before starting a Weibo account.
You're quite different from many fashion bloggers on Weibo and WeChat who came from a media background - you used to work in marketing and education.
I think the biggest challenge was to transform my ability to talk and act in motion with still words and images - and at a high level of quality. I would buy a shoulder strap from Fendi's Strap You collection, because bags with wide straps will be very popular this year.
Many influential fashion bloggers have expanded into other areas such as TV hosting, acting and modeling. I want to do something related to the career development of young women, because I think women in their 20s are confused about their career development.
Development assistance for Africa from traditional partners has mostly focused on how to best use the continent's natural resources.
Carlos Lopes says Africa faces some serious problems and may need to lean on China's friendship and goodwill to complete the leap to industrialization. But with China having become Africa's leading trading partner, an opportunity has arisen for a new model. China's journey to industrialization was often used as a reference point during a recent, weeklong forum on domestic resource mobilization that brought African planning and finance ministers and analysts to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Still, Lopes says Africa is facing some serious problems and may need to lean on China's friendship and goodwill to complete the leap to industrialization. Second, China has addressed much of its infrastructure needs and it will soon reach overcapacity. Third, rising labor costs in China will force out factories that are still in the lower value-addition level, making it necessary for them to move. Africa is by no means the only option open for China, as other Asian countries offer similar options.
The companies sometimes fail to deliver on time because of power cuts and a poor transport network that makes cross-border trade expensive.
Africa overall continues to record slow growth despite harboring industrialization ambitions. Progress can be determined through the degree to which African countries are diversifying their economies from a dependency on minerals. Lopes blames this on government inertia in prudently using the rich proceeds that have come from commodity markets in recent years to build other sectors. He says that's why narratives such as "the African Renaissance" were coined and now are in doubt because they were based on the beliefs of others and the fragility of the global market.
It's clear that China's waning appetite for Africa's commodities has had an impact on Africa's export sectors. Agenda 2063, agreed to by African heads of state, aims to optimize resources for the benefit of the continent's people. It is a comprehensive strategic plan for the socioeconomic transformation of the continent over the next 50 years. UNECA released several reports during the one-week forum in Ethiopia, providing empirical data to enable leaders and foreign investors to make informed decisions. But when the financial crisis and the subsequent economic recession hit his coal business, he decided it was time for another change and he fixed his mind on making wine.
He named the vineyard Rongzi Chateau after a local woman who it is said to have made the first wine in China about 2,700 years ago.
The soil and climate in Xiangning are all favorable for grape growing, but to ensure the success of his vineyard, Zhang invited Kong Qingshan, a top grape planting scientist at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and Jean-Claude Berrouet, a world-renowned French winemaker to be consultants, and he imported advanced wine making and storage equipment from France, the United States, Australia, Italy and Hungary.
The chateau includes a temple memorializing Rongzi and her son, a wine museum, a business school, a school of Chinese studies, a hotel and several exquisite parks.
He has also donated about 62 million yuan in recent years to assist more than 300 college students from poor families and build agricultural water conservancy projects, roads and schools in local poverty-stricken villages. After his wines started wining some prizes in Europe three years ago, Zhang began receiving orders from the US, Thailand, Macao and Hong Kong, and his sales revenue was 20 million yuan in the second half of 2014, when Rongzi wines were first launched. According to Vinexpo, an international wine and spirits exhibition established in 1981 in Bordeaux, France, wine consumption started rising markedly in China in 2005.

When talking about his more than 20 years working as a coronary artery and carotid artery surgeon, Liu Peng, 55, said that he felt sorry for his family as he seldom has any time to be with them due to his schedule of five or six operations a day.
Having studied cardiovascular operations in Japan and carotid artery operations in the United States, Liu said that the workload of Chinese surgeons is about 10 or even 20 times that of their foreign counterparts, but they are paid much less.
As far as the relationship between doctors and patients is concerned, Liu said that thorough communication is a necessity between the two parties.
It happened five years ago, when he had a patient who was suffering from Marfan Syndrome and needed to be operated on for a chance to survive.
With an increasing number of disputes between doctors and patients occurring and medical workers usually turning out to be the disadvantaged party, very few top senior high school students are choosing to take up medicine nowadays. Liu will not allow his assistant to do an operation on his own until he has assisted at a minimum of 50 operations for fear that a slip of error by his assistant may possibly get him involved in a dispute with a patient. The 36-year-old harvested 400,000 Chinese cabbages from his 100 greenhouses in late March, bringing in a fortune of more than 2 million yuan (about $307,000). This year, An plans to add six hectares of farmland by renting land from local farmers at the price of 15,000 yuan per hectare to his current 13.8 hectares. With repeating tests, An created a planting model - planting garlic sprouts, Chinese spring cabbage and watermelons in turn in a year. An went to markets to do research and found Chinese cabbages weighing between 2 kg and 2.5 kg are most popular among buyers. An's desk is packed with books and papers on rural economy, ecological agriculture, laws and rural policies. He registered his land as a family farm in 2013 and began using a quick response code last year. Wang said a professional farmer has to have not only planting skills, but also the ability to manage a rural business.
The country needs a new-type of professional farmers who can integrate modern elements such as science and technology and machinery into agricultural development to farm the large expanse of land left by rural laborers who poured into cities, as was cited by Minister of Agriculture Han Changfu on March 5 at a national meeting. Shandong, a major agricultural province in China, will be able to cultivate 500,000 professional farmers by 2020, according to Shandong agricultural bureau. An will open a company that provides services such as packaging in the second half of this year.

Once a daily sight on every British street, a dwindling but resilient band of milkmen still go out at the crack of dawn to deliver bottles of fresh milk to the nation's doorsteps. The overwhelming majority of milk used to be sold at the front door until the supermarket revolution all but wiped out this very British institution. But by selling more than milk and embracing the Internet, the few thousand remaining milkmen, including Neil Garner, have breathed new life into the cherished tradition. The 57-year-old has driven his milk float - an electrified, open-sided delivery van - through towns and villages in the dead of night since 1994, placing glass pint (half-litre) bottles of milk on the doorstep ready for when customers wake for their morning cereal and cups of tea. It's not just breakfast staples like tea bags, bread, butter, eggs and bacon that Garner now has on the back of his float. In 1980, 89 percent of all the milk bought in Britain was delivered to the door, according to trade association Dairy UK.
At the depot in nearby Watford, milkmen load up crates, containing 20 one-pint bottles each, before heading into the cold at around 2 am. Garner's no-frills electric milk float is slow and exposed to the elements, but the brisk walker likes the ease of hopping on and off for his 200 to 250 deliveries. The early drops are in pitch darkness, Garner needing a torch to find his way up the garden paths.
Some customers leave rolled-up notes with instructions such as "no milk today" or "one extra pint, please", but most now go online. A pint of milk, typically 50 pence ($0.70, 65 euro cents) at a supermarket, costs 81 pence. He relies on the few other people around to check his timing, including a man he sees getting on his bicycle each morning. The last delivery is done at 7:30 am, before Garner returns through rush-hour traffic to unload his empties at the depot. Not Eddie Platt, a British expatriate who single-handedly took on the scourge in Marseille, the southern French city where he took up residence in 2010. The idea is simple, if not particularly sexy: Participants post selfies on a social network - Facebook, Instagram or Twitter - each time they pick up a piece of litter and put it in the rubbish bin. Ten tonnes of rescued rubbish later, the effort has cyber fans around the world from Buenos Aires to New York, and TV and newspapers are hounding Platt for interviews. In fact Platt shot his founding litter-binning selfie in Leeds' sprawling Roundhay Park, one of Europe's biggest city parks. The Yorkshireman says he does not self-identify as green but simply as a concerned citizen.
One Sunday Platt - who has only an approximate mastery of French - led some 350 Marseillais on a climb up the city's tallest hill, topped by the imposing basilica Our Lady of the Guard, for a clean-up operation.
Platt is hard to miss with his infectious smile, greying beard and backwards baseball cap, not to mention his towering height - he is six foot three (1.90 meters). Legre, who says he is "100 percent Marseillais", specializes in "viral marketing" and set Platt up with his social networking tools.
Platt has had a varied career, working as a restaurant manager in England for "about 10 years, to make some money", then as a sales rep for a high-tech firm, before training to teach English abroad. There is nothing more powerful than seeing and hearing the results of someone’s success to spur you on.
If a story is relayed effectively, the audience will be gripped; they will attach themselves emotionally and as a consequence they will gain insight into success – how it feels and what it looks like. If they then hear a story which they fully identify with, they are likely to pull strength and drive from the success that is described. To qualify for the work, a carpenter must have mastery of more than 100 specific types of carpentry tools, "more than 30 of which are planes with different functions", Li said.
Xuan Fanqiu, head of the Yuanquan museum, said he chose the senior workers partly because they are more reliable in craftsmanship, in addition to the fact that "it was nearly impossible to find young people who are interested in and also good at the craftsman work". The images carved on the components could vary widely from house to house, according to Xuan.
Many villages in the ancient Huizhou region are filled with ancient houses, some of which are being torn down to make way for more modern homes. When he was traveling in the region, he saw people arguing about how to remove a two-story house, built in the early Qing Dynasty and called Chong Shan Tang House, and how to divide the wood and land.
Some of them kept only the wooden pillars and beams, while the other components were considered useless," Xuan said.
So when the ancient poet's replica cottage at the Du Fu Thatched Cottage Museum in Chengdu, Sichuan province, needed a new roof, the curators knew just whom to call. As it leaked rain, Du lamented that he would die satisfied if all the poor scholars like him had a decent shelter.
The museum started rebuilding the house in 1996, employing Liu, and opened it to the public the next year.
Thatched roofs were ubiquitous in rural Sichuan, as they are warm in winter and cool in summer.
Most of the time, I build and repair thatched cottage roofs in rural resorts that serve as teahouses, restaurants and hotels for tourists," Liu said. And the museum had to order it half a year before the rebuilding and repair project started," museum curator Jia Lan said.
These are common features in all city banks but the bank on Yongxing Island, host of the country's southernmost city government of Sansha, is not a typical city bank.
The various financial products are increasingly popular with the customers, many of whom are trying their hand at being entrepreneurs.
One of the most popular products - Xinjinyi 1 (which means "Profitable Wage 1" in Chinese) - accounts for 10 percent of the total deposits in our branch," Luo said. Staff had to combat the intense humidity, typhoons, a lack of electricity, fresh water and vegetables were scarce. Lack of medicine and medical facilities on islands such as Huang's was mirrored by his asking doctors for ten large packets of a traditional Chinese medicine. China opened its first line in 2007 and now has 19,000 kilometers of track in service, more than the rest of the world's high-speed rail networks together. Her father taught philosophy at a military college and her mother taught Chinese literature.
So researchers and scientists don't talk to marketers because they speak different languages.


She addressed the Pujiang Innovation Forum, organized by the Ministry of Science & Technology, in Shanghai as far back as 2000. They had brands that could have been quite promising but they allowed themselves to be acquired by Western brands who basically discarded them," she says. It is jointly presented by Xinmin Evening News and the municipal management council for the cultural relics of Sun Yat-sen and Soong Ching-ling. Two of them were once the first ladies of China - Ching-ling married Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925), also known as the "Father of Modern China" while Mei-ling wedded Chiang Kai-shek (1887-1975), the former leader of the Kuomintang government and president of the Republic of China.
Despite their differences in ideology, the three sisters nonetheless joined hands to lend vital support to war relief efforts in the fight against the Japanese invaders. The three sisters had provided aid to numerous schools, hospitals, air raid shelters and war-torn communities. This is the first time the three of them are reunited since 1949 when they went their separate ways," says Chen Qiwei, chief editor of Xinmin Evening News. The exhibition features the bond between the sisters, as well as their shared patriotic love for the nation. She spoke excellent English, and with a Georgia accent, which helped her to connect with American audiences, according to records from Wellesley College. To better provide for them, she established the Chinese Women's National War Relief Society. Without the victory of the war against the Japanese invaders, there would not be today's China," says Hau Pei-tsun, a politician from Taiwan who was in the Kuomintang army during the war. Ching-ling was also the person who had introduced western authors and journalists to Chairman Mao who was based in Yan'an of Shaanxi. When you put together the stories of all the three sisters, you'll get a complete picture of the war," said Xiao Guiyu, chairman of the management council of Sun Yat-sen cultural relics in Shanghai.
The latter's father is Chiang Ching-kuo, the son of Chiang Kai-shek and his first wife Mao Fumei. Part of the Chiang Kai-shek diaries is now open to public at the Hoover Institution in Stanford University. Even though they were separated for decades far across the seas, the emotional connection between them never faded," said Fang Chi-yi.
They asked about one another whenever there were visitors coming from the other side of the Straits.

Globally, an astounding 92 percent of people online have at least one account on a social network, according to the latest figures from research institute GlobalWebIndex (GWI). For blogging in particular, Weibo, launched in 2009 as Sina Weibo, has remained an influential platform in the country. Social media-based fashion bloggers and "we media" (roughly, grassroots reporters of news and social trends) have become wildly popular in China, particularly in covering the luxury fashion industry.

She initially worked for the Shanghai Morning Post reporting on international political news. Why do you choose to stay so low-key in such an extravagant, generally outspoken profession?
Needless to say, things have yet to look up," says Carlos Lopes, 56, an economist from the small West African nation of Guinea-Bissau who is executive secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. First, China is betting on Africa's demographic growth, which presents a consumer base and sizeable labor force predicted to surpass China's in 50 years.
The Asian country is its top trading partner, and a remarkable transformation is already taking place as Chinese investment is directed toward industrialization, which is creating employment for local people. Apprehension is rife over the ability of several countries to sustain their economic growth in the face of tumbling oil and commodity prices. But Lopes is quick to note that President Xi Jinping's $60 billion announcement during the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation summit in South Africa last year gave the continent a boost. It seeks to accelerate development of vibrant and inclusive economies that are integrated and connected through transport networks, internet telecommunications and common markets that promote free movement of people and goods. He spent more than 600 million yuan ($92 million) to create a 400-hectare vineyard and a 30-hectare park with chateau in the county.

Back in 2003 when Beijing was struck by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, the Sino-Japanese Friendship Hospital was designated as special medical facility for receiving SARS patients and Liu was appointed director of the Intensive Care Unit. However, a medical material needed for the operation was not available at the hospital then. Whether the development of the overall healthcare provision in the country will see progress in the future and whether medical science will have bright prospects or not, is cause for concern. Although caution is never too much when it comes to the safety of an operation, it is equally important for young surgeons to accumulate experience by performing operations on their own with the guidance of their teachers. A company based in Hainan has signed a contract with An to buy all of the melons he grows at a favorable price. After years of hard work in the city, An found life in the city not as good as he dreamed of.

He talks about his idea all the time, and he's really into social networking," says his friend Georges-Edouard Legre.

As the poem is required reading for every Chinese high school student, the museum is a must-see for many first-time visitors to Chengdu.

These modern-day trappings are not taken for granted.]]> A far-flung branch gives plenty of choice amid tide of change.
China will be a likely bidder for construction contracts on the UK's HS2 high-speed rail link. The eldest sibling, Ai-ling, was married to Kung Hsiang-hsi (1881-1967), the richest man in China in the early 1900s.

Already, Ethiopia and Rwanda are beneficiaries of light factories dealing in leather and textiles. The grant is a lot of money and for it to be spent in three years, the absorptive capacity needs to be thoroughly worked on. The great number of patients they treat provides Chinese doctors, those in big hospitals in particular, with more than enough opportunities to accumulate clinical experience, but China is not the right place for doctors wanting to make a lot of money, Liu said. To save the life of the patient, Liu proposed that the family directly contact the producer to get the material and they did so. He needs to train someone who is as skillful as he is and as dedicated to the work as he is to take over from him. When emotions and struggles are described, the listener will feel those emotions – they will be able to identify and relate to them. The speaker will have accomplished this field, and offer valuable words of advice for the audience, which he will charge them to hear.

While he was not infected by the virus, several of his colleagues were not so lucky and they are still suffering from the sequelae after they were infected at that time. When the feelings associated with success are described, the listener will feel the success for themselves, they will see themselves in the position of the speaker – engaging powerful visualisation techniques.

Despite receiving numerous awards, she refuses to collect them in person, preferring to remain out of the spotlight; she also doesn't show her face on public platforms. Despite the fact that it is common for the dangerous operation to fail and the patient's family had signed a consent form for the operation exempting the surgeon from responsibility if the operation was not successful, the family accused Liu of collaboration with the medical material producer.
Liu said that although he had no connection with the producer, in the end, the hospital paid the patient's family compensation. They are seeing and feeling themselves having accomplished their goal – this stimulates the brain to pave out the pathways toward success. He will outline his journey from the beginning: from when he was in the exact same position of the audience member, right through to where he is today – sitting on millions of pounds of profit. We still didn't know each other, but I went up to shake hands with him, saying "Thank you!" He must have thought I was crazy.
