  • 60th Anniversary of Harnessing the Huaih...Huaihe is one of the seven major rivers in China, stretching some 1,000 kilometers in length. The Huaihe River Valley, covering Henan, Hubei, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Shandong provinces, was historically affected by frequent floods. In October 1950, the Government Administration Council of the Central People's Government issued the Decision on Harnessing the Huaihe River, heralding new China's era of controlling the flood-prone watercourse. Over the past six decades, remarkable results have been achieved. Nanwan Reservoir, located on the Shihe River (a tributary of the Huaihe), is one of the first large reservoirs built in the early years of new China. Completed in 1955 with a drainage area of 1,100 square kilometers, it mainly functions in flood control and irrigation, and can also be used for water supply and electricity generation.

  • Kunqu Opera

    Kunqu Opera, one of the oldest extant forms of Chinese traditional opera, was born in the late Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, and prevailed during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) periods. Like an elegant "orchid" in the garden of Chinese operas, it features a variety of plays, diverse roles, pleasant melodies, and beautiful dancing. Occupying an important position in Chinese history of literature, drama, music and dance, Kunqu is honored as the "Mother of All Operas." In 2001, the art form was listed by UNESCO as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Representative plays, such as "Washing the Silken Gauze," "The Peony Pavilion," and "The Palace of Long Life," greatly promoted the development and spread of the opera in different historical periods.

  • Plum Blossoms, Orchids, Bamboo and Chrys...Plum blossom, orchid, bamboo, and chrysanthemum are collectively dubbed "Four Gentlemen" in China, because of their respective lofty, elegant, faithful, and noble characters. Historically, these four plants were frequently described by Chinese men of letters to show the spirits they sought, as well as their perspectives on life. Plum blossom is a deciduous arbor with a purple-brown trunk. The flowers emerge before the leaves, emitting a pleasant fragrance against the winter chill.

    Plum blossom is a traditional, native flower of China, and the planting of ornamental plum, which morphed from the species' fruit form in the early Han Dynasty (206B.C.-A.D.220), reached a zenith during the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1279-1368) periods. Since ancient times, plum blossom has been regarded as a symbol of lofty character. Wang Anshi, one of the Eight Great Prose Masters of the Tang and Song, praised the plant in his poem by writing: "At a wall corner some plum trees grow; alone against cold white blossoms blow."

  • The 880th Anniversary of the Birth of Zh...Zhu Xi (1130-1200), whose family originated in Wuyuan of Hui Prefecture (in present-day Jiangxi Province), was born in Youxi of Jian Prefecture (in present-day Fujian Province). Known by his courtesy name Yuanhui and alias Hui'an, he was a philosopher, thinker, educator as well as a leading figure of the most influential Neo-Confucian school in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). He read profusely, wrote extensive commentaries on classic works, and contributed to Confucian classics, history, literature and musical temperament.

    His school of philosophy was adopted as the official ideology in China's Yuan (1206-1368), Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, and exerted a major influence on the world's cultural history. He established a theoretical system by developing the Neo-Confucian tradition of Cheng Hao and Cheng Yi, and synthesizing the ideas of the School of Principle. This system was known later as Cheng-Zhu School of Principle. Zhu Xi devoted himself to education for over 50 years, running academies, and cultivating scholars. He was a prolific writer. His works mainly included Collected Annotations to the Chapters and Sentences of the Four Books and The Original Meaning of the Book of Changes.

  • Commemorating the Opening of the 16th As...The 16th Asian Games kicked off on November 12, 2010, in Guangzhou, capital of southern China's Guangdong Province. A total of 476 events in 42 sports were set for athletes from around Asia.

    Of the events, badminton and Wushu (martial arts) are particularly popular in China. The modern form of badminton emerged in 1860 in England, and after it was introduced into China in the early 20th century, the sport gradually gained popularity among the masses. Wushu, as a modern sport that evolved from ancient Chinese arts of self-defense and now enjoys a great following worldwide, became a formal competitive event at the Beijing Asian Games in 1990. During the Guangzhou Asian Games, badminton and Wushu competitions were held at Tianhe Gymnasium and Nansha Gymnasium, respectively.

  • Ancient Chinese Calligraphy — Running S...

    Running Script (Xing Shu), a calligraphy style that is semi-regular and semi-cursive, originated in the Han Dynasty (206B.C.-220A.D.), and became mature during the Wei (220-265) and Jin (265-420) dynasties. It simplifies the strokes of Regular Script (Kai Shu), transforms the patterns of Regular Script, and loosens the structure of Regular Script, thus being more applicable and practical to daily life compared to Regular Script and Cursive Script (Cao Shu). The "Preface to the Orchid Pavilion," in running script on paper, is a calligraphic work by Wang Xizhi (303-361), now in the collection of Beijing Palace Museum. It is said that Wang invited friends to gather at the Orchid Pavilion on the outskirts of Shanyin in Kuaiji (present-day Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province), where they drank wine and composed poems for an anthology, to which Wang wrote the preface. The calligraphy features vigorous strokes, an unconstrained structure, and a graceful style, vividly representing the new form initiated by Wang Xizhi. It produced a profound influence upon Chinese calligraphy in the following generations.
