Multiple local governments including those of Handan in Hebei province, Jinan in Shand
上海会所品茶微信ong province, and Tianjin have banned the so-called Beijing Bikini－which refers to men who roll up their sh
irts or T-shirts to expose their bellies in public places in summer. Aimed at promoting civilized behavior, the ban is a tim
ely move as the “Beijing Bikini” is considered offensive, especially by women.上海会所
Yet the good intentions of the local governments cons
上海会所titute only the first step toward promoting civilized behavior, par
ticularly in public places. So the authorities should consider all possible options
and devise an appropriate plan to ensure the ban on Beijing Bikini is actually implemented.上海会所品茶微信
In this regard, Handan’s move offers some food for thought, as civic inspectors in Hanshan district gift a T-shirt to men in B上海会所
eijing Bikini to cover themselves up. This method of correcting uncivilized behavior in a c
ivilized way reflects proper social management and sends a goodwill signal to the people in general.
上海会所品茶微信However, it is necessary to make certain facts clear, and adopt the most appropriate m
ethods to deal with the issue. For instance, men in Beijing Bikini cannot be held guilty of committing an of
fense. At most, their behavior may be deemed uncivilized. In sociological terms, the
act of a man wearing nothing above the waist could be defined as minor transgression.

“Wherever I went, I had at least 30 people following me, asking about Hong Ko

上海千花网女神会所His first visit to Beijing was six years later on business. “There were few cars and lots of bicycles on the roads.”
Crossman and his family moved to Beijing in 1997, when the traffic was heavier a

Since then he has lived and worked in Beijing.
上海千花网女神会所His parents separated when he was young, and he lived in many
different places in the US, so he never felt like he had a regular home there.

Born in Shanghai, Yu, 55, studied piano with his grandfather, the composer Ding Shande, before he
上海千花坊品茶微信was trained at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and later at the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin. On
his return from Europe, Yu has become a central character in the development of the Chinese classical music scene.
Like Yu, Chen, 68, is also a Shanghai native. In 1977, Chen was enrolled to study composition at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and in 1984上海千花坊
he moved to France where, for four years, he studied with Olivier Messiaen as the great French composer’s last pupil. He

“When I first wrote Wu Xing, the piece was not well received, since the melodies were not smo

owing number of people have developed a liking for it and it’s beyond my expectation.”上海千花坊品茶微信
The violin concerto, La joie de la Souffrance, was written in 2017, and Chen added color w

The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra also knows the violin conce

Stern International Violin Competition and was played by the six finalists, accompanied by the Orchestra.
“The relationship between a composer and his music is like that of a biological father and his
children. For the interpreters, like the conductors and symphony orchestras, they are like the ‘f
oster parents’ of the work,” says Chen. “As the ‘biological father’, I can do nothing about my work after I finished wr

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419
ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419
nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信
increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which
上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r
estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信
ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec
上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a
nd on the other hand, she wanted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

上海419论坛女神会所ductions made with the 4:3 aspect ratio – they now look like “running mosaics” on today’s much wider screens.
To top it all, due to multiple transfers of the original video file over the years, the edges of picture have become serrated. Plus, sto
red for decades, negatives of those classic shows have all been subject to severe color shift that calls for correction.
The good news is that digital restoration of classical TV dramas spearheaded by China’s top video streaming websites, like Youku and iQiyi, is now in full swing.上海419论坛女神会所
Protecting and restoring old films has always been under way, but previously the job was mainly funded by the government. By the end of 2011, as much as
265 million yuan ($38.6 million) had been appropriated for digital restoration work, giving a new shine to a total of 4,810 old fi上海419论坛
lms, said Luo Jianhui from China Netcasting Services Association at the 7th China Internet Audio-visual Conference held in May.
Luo also noted that internet companies are the new force in this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many re
上海419论坛女神会所sults. Earlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a vi
deo-enhancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.
Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it to
