It’s important we have both of the visions. One is the visi

on to look into the future amid urban life, and the other is to look back

on rural history – it’s our past,” he says, adding that this contradiction – resisting urban

ization while at the same time embracing progress – has driven the emergence of modern thought and di

scourse, which has become the internal motivation for change in art, literature and philosophy.

Ethnic Tibetan writer A Lai, famous for his novel Settling Dust, which was also published und

er the title Red Poppies, says many of the writers today still depict rural life as they imagine it, rather than ob

serving and reflecting on it by honestly facing the challenges posed by globalization.

“We should be aware that many of the problems facing Chinese farmers and villagers today are universal,” he says.

China is the only country that lists forecasting earthquakes as a government responsibility.

Considering our limited knowledge about earthquakes, the forecasting work has to be based on observatio

n. However, the weak signals from underground are often disrupted by electromagnetic interference, he said.

He said that in cooperation with the government of Shenzhen, Guangdong province, his admini

stration has established a research institute to accelerate the development of new app

aratuses for underground detection that could reduce interference from human activity.

“We will also explore carrying out observational experiments in wel

ls from hundred of meters to 1,000 meters deep, and through scientific drilling that will penetr

ate active earthquake faults to gain more information about underground structures,” he said.

Wu Zhongliang, director of the administration’s Institu

itute of Earthquake Forecasting, said the experimental site will help form a

“united front” at the national and international level to work on earthquake forecasting.

Referring to earthquake forecasting as a hard nut to crack, Wu said t

he work cannot see marked progress just in a few days, but forecasting capability will be imp

roved as technology develops. “If it’s a war between humans and earthquakes, it’s us that will finally win,” he said.

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor a

t the administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” wel

comes the project. China boasts unique conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes oc

cur “inside the land under the feet of the people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

Sales of Saky products in the lower-tier market only accou

unt for about 20 percent of the total, but they have quadrupled in the past two years.

“If you can prove to small-town youths that the products are useful, they are willing to pay,” Lan said. “Some inno

vative Saky products have also seen rapid growth in lower-tier markets, including one that removes stains from teeth.”

Chen, from Roland Berger, said that while small-town youths are narrowing the gap with their count

erparts in bigger cities in many ways, they still have many distinct demands. If companies want to win t

hem over, it is important for them to have a deep understanding of lower-tier markets and to draw up strategies acc

ordingly, whether in building brand awareness, or providing specialized products and distribution channels.

For example, while helping a jewelry company to access lower-tier markets, he found tha

t jade inlaid with gold is very popular, although it is considered unfashionable by consumers in large cities.

t offers facilities such as an indoor swimming pool, a party room, lots of chewable toys, a dessert area and a pet cinema.

To make sure every guest happy during their stay, the resort offers a spec

ial place for old pets and rooms with yards for animals to run around. The resort also plays

standup comedy and music in the background to create an environment with human voices in it.

“We offer a service like a kindergarten to prevent pets from getting bored,” she said. “They can soc

ialize with other pets, go to a cinema showing films for dogs, or participate in social and sports courses.”

“The resort is just the start,” said Li. “China will be the countr

y with the biggest pet ownership. And the hospitality service is a necessity for the ma

rket, and there is big potential. We aim to cultivate a local brand of premium service for pets.”

The seized animals and products included ivory, rhinocer

ros horns, pangolin scales, dried sea horses, red corals, and hawksbill turtles, Zheng said.

A major overseas criminal gang once active in smuggling animals to Guangdong province has been busted following the crackdown, he said.

He suggested that further special campaigns will be launched to fight against such smuggling in the coming months.

Water pollution has forced many regions, especially in southern China, to change their sou

rces of drinking water, with many reaching out to the Yangtze River, a report said.

The contamination of water bodies has made drinking water in souther

n China more scarce, despite a dense network of waterways, according to the report, publ

ished earlier this year by the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, an NGO.

A campaign to root out environmental violations at water intake sites is expect

ed to improve things, but environmental authorities should be aware that local governments may choose to aba

ndon their water intake sources to avoid rectifying problems, said Ma Jun, director of the institute.
