Not all stories are love stories | Reading Day

Recently, Chinese-American writer Yiyun Li’s novel "Should I Go" met readers in China, which is the first time that Yiyun Li has been translated into Chinese and introduced into domestic novels.

Many readers in China have heard of Yiyun Li, but many readers in China read Yiyun Li for the first time. Yiyun Li went to the United States to study after graduating from the Biology Department of Peking University, and later turned to writing. From the publication of her first novel collection "A Thousand Years of Worship" in 2005 to the present, she has always written in English, and has become one of the most accomplished Chinese writers in English. Now, she is finally ready to return her works to China.

The first novel translated into Chinese and published.

Many readers in China have heard of Yiyun Li.

Yiyun Li, a Chinese-American writer, is currently a professor and director of creative writing program at Lewis Art Center of Princeton University. She is a "post-70s" who went to the United States to study after graduating from the Biology Department of Peking University, and later turned to English writing. Her first collection of short stories, A Thousand Years of Worship, has aroused widespread concern and affirmation, and won the Frank O ‘Connor International Short Story Award, the American Pen Hemingway Award and the British Guardian Newcomer Award. She herself has been rated as the most noteworthy writer by major authoritative literary magazines, and won the MacArthur Genius Award in the United States in 2010. In 2012, Yiyun Li won the O Henry Award for her short story Kindness, making her the first Chinese writer to win the award. In 2022, Yiyun Li was elected as an academician of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a year later, she won the Faulkner Prize for Literature for her new work The Book of Goose.

So far, Yiyun Li has published six novels, three collections of short stories and one memoir. Should I Go, published in 2020, is her first novel translated into Chinese. In this novel, "Lilia has been married three times, raised five children, and is now looking forward to the birth of the 17th grandchild. She has been helping people around her to recognize herself all her life. At the age of eighty-five, she began to be fascinated by the diary of her old friend Roland. When she was young, they had a romantic relationship. She wanted to see what she could leave for the younger generation. The diary recorded Roland’s affairs in great detail. Lilia took pains to add footnotes to everything. A secret relationship that lasted for decades was slowly uncovered, including the existence of her daughter Lucy, who even Roland himself didn’t know. Flame-like passion, the grief of annihilation, people’s hearts go back and forth between these two poles, but they have to find their home and exit and continue to cruise. Yiyun Li gave a dazzling praise to life in the novel, about Lilia and about everyone who comes and goes in our lives. "

At the launch of Should I Go in Shanghai, Bao Huiyi, a young writer and associate professor of English at Fudan University, said that at first she thought the novel was a work about how to face aging and the last years of life, but later she found that it subverted all her presuppositions. She explained that the 80-year-old woman was obsessed with her old lover and went to such great trouble to read his diary, probably because she was immersed in the past, but this was not the case at all. With the development of the story, if it had a core meaning, it was the death of her daughter. In the novel, Lilia gave birth to a child with Roland, or she got a life from Roland. Later, this life passed away. Therefore, in Bao Huiyi’s understanding, Lilia didn’t go to the diary to trace the old love affair at all, and the author Yiyun Li also warned readers from the beginning that not all stories are love stories.

Who collects who?

When reading Should I Go, Bao Huiyi found two different voices contending. "There is a male first-person narrator in the book, and then the voice-over is female, because Lilia is constantly making comments when reading Roland’s book, and subverts the male voice, or it can’t be said to be subversive, because her comments actually appear irregularly, which can be said to be a deconstruction of the life story that the man thinks he is. Then you will see such a struggle for the narrative subject, which is very interesting and very tense. "

Bao Huiyi believes that "Should I Go" has at least three or more layers of structure, the first of which is Roland, the author of the diary, and Lilia, the commentator, and the relationship between Lilia and Roland can be expanded. However, Yiyun Li is not unconventional. In an interview with Zhong Na, a bilingual writer and literary translator, Yiyun Li said that she was willing to rely on a traditional structure, and she thought that she could tell the story well with the help of an existing framework. In Bao Huiyi’s view, this is actually a solid writing attitude. Writers rely on their own handy framework to write dialogues and characters well.

Bao Huiyi said that perhaps when reading more than ten pages in the book, readers will feel that Yiyun Li is an author with profound narrative skills and sophisticated life wisdom. For example, in the book, the struggle for topics such as memory and time, the man thinks that he can write a book with a coffin, and the young girl becomes his lover, just one of his many "collections", even just a small footnote in his life, but who actually collects who, who forgets who, what is permanence, what is transience and what is possession?

Zhong Na shared her reading experience at the launch of Should I Go? Zhong Na said that in "Should I Go", readers can see that Lilia shared a lot of life wisdom, and there are many enlightening things, especially some golden sentences, which also show the personality of the characters. "I think the interesting thing that Yiyun Li presents in this book is that there are many golden sentences, but at the same time, the golden sentences are constantly being deconstructed and overthrown, and they are often contradictory, which actually constitutes the personality characteristics of Lilia."

In addition, Lilia keeps reading the diary of his old lover and responding, which seems paranoid. How to understand this behavior, Zhong Na spent a long time thinking, and finally found the answer in another book by Yiyun Li, Dear Friends, Write Your Life from My Life. "Yiyun Li suffered from depression for two years, and then she did some thinking and digestion by reading and reviewing her life, including her relationship with her family, her relationship with literature, and her relationship with the first half of her life. So in fact, she is slowly gaining some wisdom to regain the balance of her life by constantly reading the writer’s letters and diaries. So that book is actually having a dialogue with "Should I Go?", that is, through very in-depth reading, the lives of readers and authors are intertwined. So after I reread the book, I read "Should I Go" again, and I have a feeling of understanding Lilia. When a person’s life is in a dilemma, she re-establishes a narrative by reading this most extreme way to enter the other’s brain. "

A Chinese writer who writes in English

The Chinese simplified version of Should I Go was published, which made many readers who had heard of Yiyun Li read Yiyun Li for the first time.

At the launch of Should I Go, Penglun, an archipelago book publisher, recalled his association with Yiyun Li and shared the publishing story of Should I Go. He said that for many readers, Yiyun Li has always been a legend or a legend. From the publication of the first collection of novels "A Thousand Years of Worship" in 2005 to the present, she has always written in English, but she was not born and raised in the United States, but a writer who went to study in the United States from China. Before going to the United States, she had never published her works in Chinese. Among the current Chinese writers, Yiyun Li can be said to be the most accomplished writer in English, and many readers in China who are concerned about the world literary world are also curious. Why has Yiyun Li never published Chinese works before?

Peng Lun introduced that he began to pay attention to Yiyun Li in 2004. At that time, his job was to report some trends in the literary and publishing circles at home and abroad, and he learned by chance that Yiyun Li had won a new literary prize. He had never heard of this writer, so he searched the Internet for relevant information and got in touch with Yiyun Li by email.

In 2005, Yiyun Li published her first collection of short stories in the United States and won some literary prizes. At that time, Peng Lungang started publishing and asked Yiyun Li if she could translate this collection of novels into China, but she refused. With the increasing popularity of Yiyun Li, other China media began to pay attention to this writer. However, when asked when he would publish a book in China, Yiyun Li said no.

"I noticed at that time that she felt that she was not ready at that stage, or that China was not ready to accept her as a Chinese writer writing in English." Peng Lun said.

Ten years later, until 2020, Peng Lun suddenly received a letter from Yiyun Li’s agent and her latest novel manuscript at that time, that is, "Should I go?".

Zhong Na thinks, "Should I Go" is a very mature writer who is very satisfied with his current creation, so Yiyun Li is willing to make it the starting point for his work to enter the Chinese world. Zhong Na has been paying attention to Yiyun Li’s creative career. In her view, the writer’s writing has been constantly changing, broadening her own boundaries. In the early days, Yiyun Li’s writing actually paid more attention to the depiction of characters’ inner images, as well as the connection of very special characters’ emotions and relationships, and even hid himself among the characters. But later, Yiyun Li did a lot of experiments and broadening on texts and writing, and his works were more mature than those in his early years.

It is reported that besides Should I Go, Yiyun Li’s other two works, The Book of Goose and Wednesday’s Children, have also been put on the publishing schedule. "Although her works entered the Chinese world for the first time, many readers, especially female readers, recognized her voice and the charm of her works very quickly, which gave me great confidence." Peng Lun said.

In the final, China once again welcomed its bitter Kenyan team. Less than 30 seconds into the game, China scored a touchdown and got off to a good start. Subsequently, the Kenyan team used the pre-kicking tactics several times, which were all resolved by the China team. In the end, China defeated its opponent with a score of 19-5 and won the championship.

This is the second time that China won the World Rugby Sevens Challenge after five years. Previously, in 2022 and 2023, the China team regretted winning the bronze medal.

Opening words:

New Year’s Eve is a day of family reunion. Behind the lights, there are always some people who choose to stick to their posts and contribute their strength to others’ Spring Festival.

When they are homesick, they can only "reunite" with their families online, make a phone call, make a video, report their peace to their families and send them lovesickness.

On this New Year’s Eve, upstream journalists visited ordinary people from different positions and recorded their online New Year’s Eve.

Thank them for their dedication, responsibility and responsibility.

Video call with family during lunch time

"Mom, is the dinner ready for the New Year’s Eve?" On January 31st, New Year’s Eve, the day of family reunion, Xiong Mengxiang made a video call to his mother during the short lunch time.

"What do you eat today? Dad cooked a lot of delicious dishes, but it’s a pity that you can’t come back. " Mother’s words are full of regret and concern.

"You eat more, eat my share, I’m all right here, eat well, don’t worry …" Xiong Mengxiang in the video always keeps smiling. A few minutes later, after hanging up the phone, she quietly turned her head and gently wiped her tears. Immediately, she began to tidy up her appearance, then put on a smile again and returned to her post to continue her work.

▲ Xiong Mengxiang wears protective equipment and is ready to work.

"Hello, madam, do you have any luggage to check?" Xiong Mengxiang, who returned to his post, smiled and served every passenger who came to check in.

Work for 10 years, only go home on New Year’s Eve and spend the New Year’s Eve twice.

Xiong Mengxiang has been doing this job for 10 years. Because of the particularity of her job, on New Year’s Eve in the past 10 years, she stuck to her job for eight years and only went back to her hometown in Hubei twice. On New Year’s Eve this year, Xiong Mengxiang is still on duty.

Xiong Mengxiang’s current job is a 24-hour shift system, starting at 9 am and getting off work at 9 am the next day.

You can choose some oily skin care products with the function of preventing water loss, and then apply sunscreen with good anti-ultraviolet effect and water resistance to your skin.

Custom calendar for one week in morning weather | Warm up, warm up, warm up! The highest temperature in Shanghai is 29℃ on Friday, and the cold air "kills" on weekends.

00:34

It’s the end of October. Why is it so "hot"?

Recently, the weather in Shencheng is really good. The blue sky is lined with dazzling eyes during the day. In the afternoon, the body feels even warmer than the category of "crisp autumn", and many pedestrians wear short-sleeved skirts.

Close to beginning of winter, as warm as long summer?

Many netizens in Shanghai shouted "hot".

Shencheng continues to heat up today. With the help of warm autumn sun, the highest temperature in most parts of the city generally reaches around 25℃, including 24.9℃ at Xujiahui Station in the urban area and 26.9℃ at Qingpu Station.

Looking at the whole country, due to the weak cold air that has affected our country recently, this warming wave has a large scope.

According to China Weather Network, since October this year, the temperature in most parts of China has been on the high side, with many places 2 to 4℃ higher than normal, and many places in North China have successively exceeded 30℃.

In the early part of this week, China’s central and eastern regions still maintained a warmer pattern.

Why is there such a rare warm and hot weather?

Li Liang, a meteorologist of China Weather Network, analyzed that since October this year, the polar vortex that accumulated cold air has been located in the north, and the cold air affecting China is significantly weaker than normal, and the temperature in most parts of China has been on the high side. In the next three days, the cold air affecting China will be located in the north and weak, coupled with the blessing of sunny days, which is very conducive to the temperature rise in North China and its south.

For Shanghai, the temperature will continue to rise in the daytime tomorrow. It should be noted that the temperature difference between day and night is large, with the temperature difference in the central city exceeding 8℃ and that in the suburbs above 10℃. Pay attention to dressing flexibly.

Specific forecast for tomorrow:

Sunny to cloudy with southerly winds of 3-4. The highest temperature is 26℃ and the lowest temperature is 18℃. The relative humidity is 90%-45%. Fire risk rating Meteorological index: Grade 4, flammable.

In a week, the temperature rises first and then falls this week, and will reach the peak of this round of warming on Friday, with the highest temperature reaching 29℃.

Cold air finally arrived on weekends, and the temperature dropped all the way, accompanied by a light rain weather process.

The highest temperature will fall back to "prefix 1" next Monday.

According to the meteorological department, this week’s sunny or cloudy weather plays the leading role, and the weather is generally dry, so it is necessary to pay attention to the safety of replenishing water and using fire and electricity.

  In terms of temperature, the impact of cold air on China came to an end yesterday, and some areas in Northeast China and North China experienced 4~8℃ cooling.

  Starting from this weekend, most of the country will start the warming mode, and it will reach the recent high temperature from 19th to 22nd, and the maximum temperature of 20℃ will be pushed northward to central Henan and northern Anhui. After warming up, the temperature in many places may be 6~10℃ higher than normal. For example, the highest temperature in Shenyang yesterday was still below freezing point, and then the temperature went up all the way, and it will rise to 12 C on the 21st. The highest temperature in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River is as high as 22~23℃ from 21st to 22nd, showing obvious warmth.

  However, compared with the rapid warming during the day, the warming process of the minimum temperature is slower. In the next few days, the temperature difference between day and night in most parts of the country is generally above 10℃, and it can even reach about 20℃ in the northern part of the country. It is recommended that the public increase or decrease clothes in time according to the temperature change to guard against catching a cold.

    In the face of the fierce financial turmoil, the Hong Kong SAR Government used its magic weapon. What thrilling dispute stories happened in several confrontations with Soros? Why did the then Financial Secretary Donald Tsang secretly cry? What are the mysteries hidden in the final Armageddon?

That financial storm was threatening in those days.







How does the Hong Kong authorities resolve the financial crisis?







Why did Donald Tsang secretly shed tears during the financial turmoil?


    The financial storm that started to make waves in July 1997 swept across Asia like a volcanic eruption, and then stirred the whole world. Those countries that fell in the storm were mired in the quagmire of economic collapse and could only be slaughtered by others. However, Hong Kong, which is still standing in the storm, has already suffered from black and blue wounds in its financial market. At this time, the SAR Government has realized that although the impact of international speculators has been defused several times, a more violent storm has not yet arrived, and the SAR Government must meet the challenge with tougher measures and a more active attitude. It is also at this time that Soros, who has been waiting for the best opportunity, is constantly accumulating energy and preparing to launch a final blow to Hong Kong. The decisive battle of Hong Kong’s financial defense finally kicked off in August 1998.     


    Details:


    Welcome to the special program on the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China, which was produced by "Through Hong Kong".






      The financial storm that started to make waves in July 1997 quickly swept through Asia like a volcanic eruption and then stirred the whole world. Those countries that fell in the storm were trapped in the quagmire of economic collapse and could only be slaughtered. However, Hong Kong, which is still standing in the storm, has also suffered from black and blue financial markets. At this time, the SAR Government has realized that although the impact of international speculators has been defused several times, a more violent storm has not yet arrived, and the SAR Government must meet the challenge with tougher measures and a more active attitude. It is also at this time that Soros, who has been waiting for the best opportunity, is constantly accumulating energy and preparing to launch a final blow to Hong Kong. The Armageddon of Hong Kong’s financial defense finally kicked off in August 1998.



      On August 5, 1998, international speculators sold more than 20 billion Hong Kong dollars in one day. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority changed its passive approach in the past, and absorbed all of Hong Kong’s fiscal reserves to stabilize the foreign exchange market at the level of HK$ 7.75 to US$ 1, and the interbank market borrowing interest only increased slightly.


      On August 6th, speculators sold more than HK$ 20 billion, and the Monetary Authority made a new move, not only accepting all the Hong Kong dollars according to the order, but also depositing them into the Hong Kong banking system, which played a role in stabilizing interbank lending interest and prevented the stock market from falling due to the increase in interest rate.


      On August 7th, the Hang Seng Index fell by 212 points, or 3%, due to the poor performance of some blue-chip stocks that have announced interim results. In the following trading days, from 7th to 13th, the Hong Kong government continued to adopt the method of absorbing Hong Kong dollars to stabilize the interbank interest rate and thus achieve the goal of stabilizing the stock market. However, due to speculators’ short selling in the stock market, the Hang Seng Index finally fell to a low around 6,600 points, almost 10,000 points lower than a year ago, and the total market value evaporated by HK$ 2 trillion in one year. .


      On August 13th, after the Hang Seng Index was suppressed to 6,660 points, the Hong Kong government organized Hong Kong capital and mainland capital to enter the market, and launched a battle with rivals for the August stock index futures contract. Speculators want to suppress the index, while the Hong Kong Government wants to hold the index, forcing speculators to fail to cash out their contracts in full before the end of August. After entering the market, the Hong Kong Government bought a large number of August stock index futures contracts shorted by international speculators, pushing the futures index up from 6,610 points before entering the market to 7,820 points on the 24th, which was higher than the average opening price of 7,500 points by investment speculators, and achieved initial victory. After the market closed that day, the Hong Kong Government announced that it had used the Exchange Fund to intervene in the stock market and futures market.


      On August 14th, the Hong Kong government officially participated in the stock market and futures market transactions. In order to safeguard the Hong Kong dollar, the Hong Kong Government brought huge amounts of exchange funds into the stock market and futures market to directly confront speculators. The Hong Kong Government issued instructions to a number of securities firms in Hong Kong, such as Bank of China, Dodoli and Hesheng, to absorb a large number of blue-chip stocks in the Hang Seng Index, saying that it must raise the stock index in August by 600 points at all costs. The Hong Kong government’s reversal of the previous policy of "positive non-intervention" has dealt an unexpected heavy blow to speculators.


      On August 24th, in order to break the speculators’ arbitrage plan, the Hong Kong Government took the initiative again and intervened in the market with HK$ 5 billion. On that day, the Hang Seng Index fluctuated violently, with a short-term plunge of 300 points, and then it was quickly pulled back. At the close, the Hang Seng Index rose by 318 points.


      For the snipers and defenders of Hong Kong’s financial market, this is definitely a thrilling August. The curtain of the decisive battle has been opened, and the last moment of the decisive battle is coming. August 28th, 1998 is the settlement date of August contract of Hong Kong Hang Seng Index Futures. International speculators have a large number of futures orders that must be sold when they expire. If the stock market and foreign exchange market can stabilize at a high level or continue to break through, speculators will lose hundreds of millions or even more than one billion dollars. On the contrary, the tens of billions of Hong Kong dollars invested by the Hong Kong Government before will be thrown into the sea. Two rivals who have been fighting in the financial market for a whole year have finally waited for the final battle to decide life and death.


      On August 27th, 1998, bad news kept coming from the global financial field. The US Dow Jones stock index fell by 217 points, and the European and Latin American stock markets fell by 3% ~ 8%. The Hong Kong stock market is facing a severe test. Under the command of Donald Tsang, the then Financial Secretary of the SAR, the Hong Kong Government injected about HK$ 20 billion a day, which steadily boosted the Hang Seng Index by 88 points, laying the foundation for the final decisive battle. On the same day, Soros’s Quantum Fund publicly declared that the Hong Kong Government would fail. This kind of public challenge to a government in the name of a company or individual, threatening to defeat a government, is unprecedented. Of course, there is intimidation in this, but it also shows Soros’s ambition and confidence. For this decisive battle, both sides are prepared, and no one can afford to lose.


      August 28th may be the longest day in Hong Kong since there was a stock market.


      At 10 o’clock in the morning, the transaction officially began. Only five minutes after the market opened, the turnover of the stock market exceeded HK$ 3.9 billion. Half an hour later, the turnover exceeded HK$ 10 billion, and by the close of the morning, the turnover had reached HK$ 40 billion, which was close to the record of HK$ 46 billion daily turnover set on August 29, 1997.


      After the market opened in the afternoon, the selling continued unabated, and the Hong Kong government accepted all the orders, and the turnover climbed all the way, while the Hang Seng Index and the Futures Index remained above 7,800 points. As the bell rang at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, the constantly beating Hang Seng Index, Futures Index and transaction amount on the display screen were finally locked at 7829, 7851 and 79 billion respectively.


      The Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region immediately announced that the Hong Kong Government had won the battle against international speculators and defending the Hong Kong stock market and the Hong Kong dollar.


      If we leave aside the tragic war on this day, then the closing point of the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong on the 28th is really a very dull number, which is even 93 points lower than that of the previous day. However, the significance of this figure to Hong Kong’s financial market is immeasurable. It has made Hong Kong’s stock market stand firm, leaving international speculators with no room for profit, and because their contracts have expired, they will inevitably suffer huge losses. This enter the dragon was later written into the financial textbooks of many countries all over the world, and it also became an important plot in many film and television dramas. However, no matter how it was deduced in actual combat in class or how it was performed in movies, it was not as wonderful as that day.


      August 28th, 1998 is a heartbreaking day for many speculators. They came with the results of sweeping Southeast Asia and the ambition of sweeping Hong Kong, and their battle plan was not careless. Perhaps their only failure was to underestimate the determination of the Hong Kong SAR government. The Hong Kong government, which has always pursued a zero-intervention economic policy, actually carried 98 billion US dollars of foreign exchange reserves and entered the stock market and the foreign exchange market for a large-scale defense.


      On the 28th, international speculative funds almost rushed out in an attempt to completely suppress the stock index, while the Hong Kong government took all the sales orders and held them to the stock market. The transaction amount on this day reached HK$ 79 billion, setting a record for a single day in the Hong Kong market.


      After the decisive battle on the 28th, international speculators also made a fight against the trapped animals. They believe that neither financial pressure nor public opinion pressure can sustain the SAR Government for a long time, so they decided to transfer the contract from August to September, hoping to fight a protracted war with the Hong Kong Government. The SAR government immediately made a decision to continue to push up the price of stock index futures, forcing speculative capital losses to leave. On September 7, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority promulgated new regulations on foreign exchange, securities trading and settlement, which greatly restricted speculators’ speculation. On that day, the Hang Seng Index soared 588 points and stood at the 8,000-point mark. The losses of international speculators further intensified and eventually they had to retreat from Hong Kong.


      It is estimated by Hong Kong market participants that the Hong Kong government invested more than HK$ 100 billion in the two-week stock market support operation, and concentrated on acquiring the shares of several major blue-chip companies in Hong Kong, becoming the major shareholders of several blue-chip companies in Hong Kong. After that, everyone knows the story. The Hong Kong market gradually recovered its vitality. In 1999, the Hang Seng Index returned to more than 10,000 points, and the Hong Kong government completely withdrew from the stock market, earning billions of dollars.


      At that time, there were loud voices for and against the government’s abandonment of the "zero intervention policy" and the use of foreign exchange reserves to intervene in the stock market and futures market. Today, conservative economists still believe that this move has damaged the international image of Hong Kong as a free economy. Soros even launched world public opinion and attacked the Hong Kong government for "administrative intervention in the market", which violated the rules of the market economy. However, supporters believe that the economy manipulated by speculative capital is not a free economy, and the Hong Kong government entered the market precisely to break this manipulation. Donald Tsang, the Financial Secretary of Hong Kong who personally directed the market entry operation at that time, was even more deeply impressed.


      Tsang Pau Siu-Mei, the wife of Donald Tsang, never asked about her husband’s official business. Even if Donald Tsang attacked an "international financial tycoon" in the financial turmoil, she knew nothing beforehand.


      "That summer (1998), I went to Jiuzhaigou with him (Donald Tsang). At that time, he had been calling back to Hong Kong. When he and I went to Istanbul later, I only felt that he had been preparing something urgent. Halfway through the trip, he suddenly said that something important had come back to Hong Kong, leaving me alone in Istanbul, having no idea what had happened. After returning to Hong Kong, I realized that he had made a decision to enter the market. "


      In a letter to his younger brother, Donald Tsang explained why he was in favor of entering the market.


      "Why should I make this intervention decision? ….. If the government does not take action again, the stock market will fall to an unreasonable level because of manipulation, interest will continue to be high, the Link will continue to be under pressure, and economic recovery will only be in the foreseeable future. "


      "You may ask, why doesn’t the government just announce the abandonment of the linked exchange rate? ….. Decoupling at this time will only make Hong Kong people lose their confidence in the Hong Kong dollar overnight. Hong Kong is an economy that relies heavily on exports. Once the linked exchange rate is lost, the stability of Hong Kong’s foreign trade will be immediately reduced, and the stock market and property market will plunge again, interest rates will soar, and the economic environment will further deteriorate. Even in the long run, it may not be the blessing of Hong Kong people. "


      Donald Tsang later said that he shed tears the night before the government decided to intervene in the market. But as he said in his letter: government participation in the market is a dilemma. Now that I have made this decision, I must stick to my principles and accept criticism. ….. I will never take it lightly, and I will redouble my efforts to account to the people of Hong Kong. ….. Our life is very difficult. But I don’t believe that we Hong Kong people will lose.


      At that time, Soros, who sang against Donald Tsang, gave people the impression that he was a very mysterious figure. Even the specific figure of his losses in Hong Kong has never been known, so there will always be some deductive elements when talking about him. At that time, there was a widely circulated saying that some people even mentioned in the article that in 1998, when Soros directed speculative funds to attack Hong Kong in turn, an incident that happened in the mainland of China surprised him.


      In March 1998, Zhu, who just became the Prime Minister of the State Council, China? Ji held his first press conference in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.


      "If Hong Kong needs it, the central government will defend Hong Kong at all costs!"


      This is the sentence that surprised Soros. It is said that Soros was drinking tea at that time, and when he heard this sentence, the cup in his hand fell to the ground. Although the truth of this statement cannot be verified, the firm support of the China government is a great encouragement to Hong Kong compatriots and a shock to international speculators.


      In fact, in 1998, China’s economy also encountered many difficulties, such as declining export growth rate, sluggish domestic demand, and catastrophic floods. At that time, the whole world almost unanimously declared that China’s economy would struggle if the RMB did not depreciate. However, in a highly responsible attitude, the China government has made a solemn commitment not to devalue the RMB from the overall situation of maintaining stability and development in the region. To show sincerity, the China government also narrowed the floating range of the RMB against the US dollar.


      While insisting that the RMB will not depreciate, the China government has adopted the policy of expanding domestic demand and stimulating economic growth, which has maintained the healthy and stable growth of the domestic economy and played an important role in easing the economic tension in Asia and promoting the economic recovery in Asia.


      The financial defense war in Hong Kong, which happened at the end of last century, is still talked about by people, although there is no sword and shadow, and there is no smoke. When many economies collapsed in the face of the storm, the young Hong Kong Special Administrative Region withstood Soros’s indiscriminate bombing and kept the development achievements of Hong Kong for decades. If one day, we can read Soros’s autobiography, I wonder how he will describe the Waterloo in Hong Kong.

    Strong cold air today "crosses" the Yangtze River, and the temperature in most parts of the country has hit record lows.

      China Weather Network News The cold wave is coming! On December 12th, a strong cold air began to affect our country. Today, it will affect along the Yangtze River, and tomorrow it will reach Jiangnan and South China. Affected by this, the temperature in most parts of the country will hit a new low one after another until December 15th. Not only that, the large-scale rain and snow weather in the south will also be carried out on this "strong cold air train", and many cities may usher in snow at the beginning of this winter.

      Strong winds and cooling will appear one after another, and the temperature in various places will be as low as "March 9" in a large area.

      Yesterday, this strong cold air has begun to affect China, but it is still in the "starting" stage. The affected area is only in the plateau area, and most other areas are still in a relatively stable state, such as North China, Huanghuai, Jianghan and other places. Fog and haze still appeared in the morning, but at night, with the cold air killing, the visibility improved, and the gale cooling also officially appeared one after another.

      This morning, the Central Meteorological Observatory continued to issue a blue warning of cold wave. It is predicted that from 08: 00 on December 13th to 08: 00 on December 15th, the temperature will drop by 6 ~ 8℃ in the eastern part of Northeast China, southeastern part of Northwest China, most of North China, most of Huanghuai, most of Jianghuai, Jianghan, Jiangnan, eastern part of Southwest China and most of South China. Among them, the temperature will drop by 10℃ in some areas such as southwest Hunan, southeast Guizhou and central and northern Guangxi. After cooling, the minimum temperature line of 0℃ will be pressed south to the line from southern Guizhou to northwestern Zhejiang. There are 4 ~ 6 northerly winds with gusts of 7 ~ 8 in the north, 4 ~ 5 northerly winds in the south, 6 ~ 7 gusts in rivers and lakes, 6 ~ 8 northerly winds with gusts of 9 in offshore waters.

    Strong cold air crossed the Yangtze River today, and the temperature in the whole country hit new lows one after another.

      This cold air moves faster. It has arrived along the Yangtze River today and will "cross" the Yangtze River. Tomorrow, it will mainly affect Jiangnan and South China. Affected by this, the early high temperature pattern in all parts of the country will be completely broken and turned to be obviously low. Since it is a cold wave, the power of this strong cold air is not only that, of course. It will also cause the temperature in most parts of the country to hit a new low since beginning of winter, and let many areas experience the "March 9th" and "April 9th" cold in advance.

      According to the forecast, the temperature in the northern region will hit a new low on the 13th to 14th. For example, in the northeast region, the highest temperature will generally drop to around -10℃, and the lowest temperature will drop all the way below -20℃. The highest temperature in the eastern part of northwest China, North China, Huanghuai and other places will drop to about 0℃, and the lowest temperature will only be around -10℃. In the southern region, the temperature will generally hit a new low on the 14th to 15th. In many places in Jianghuai, Jianghan and Jiangnan, it is only about 5℃ during the day, which can be called winter.

      It is worth noting that after the end of this cold wave process, there will be another cold air impact from December 16 to 18. It is expected that the intensity will be weaker than the current one, but it will also make the temperature in most places continue to be low. In a word, the recent cold air is the rhythm of one after another. Everyone needs to pay attention to the approaching forecast, and it is the key to do a good job of cold protection and warmth.

      There is little and weak snowfall in the north, and the rain and snow in the south are frozen on the line.

      In terms of precipitation, the rain and snow brought by this strong cold air to the north is generally weak, mainly because there will be some rain and snow processes in the central and eastern regions; In the south, on the contrary, riding the "strong cold air train", rain and snow will spread out on a large scale. It is estimated that today, there will be small to medium snow or sleet in parts of the eastern part of the northwest, Jianghan, Jianghuai, western and northern Jiangnan, and eastern Guizhou, among which there will be heavy snow in southern Anhui and northwestern Hubei. There are small to moderate rains in parts of Sichuan Basin, most of Chongqing, western Guizhou, eastern Yunnan, southern Jiangnan, most of southern China and Taiwan Province Island, among which there is local heavy rain in southern Guangxi.

    Strong cold air crossed the Yangtze River today, and the temperature in the whole country hit new lows one after another.

      Tomorrow, the freezing situation of rain and snow in the southern region should not be underestimated. It is expected that there will be small to medium snow or sleet in parts of southwestern Xinjiang, eastern Tibet, southwestern Shaanxi, southern Hubei, western and northern Jiangnan, and northern and eastern Guizhou. There are small to moderate rains in parts of southeastern Tibet, eastern Southwest China, central and southern Jiangnan, and most of southern China, among which there is heavy rain in the northeast of Taiwan Province Island.

    Strong cold air crossed the Yangtze River today, and the temperature in the whole country hit new lows one after another.

      It is understood that the southernmost snow line of this precipitation process can reach the first line of southern Guizhou-southern Hunan-northwestern Jiangxi-northwestern Zhejiang. Many places including Wuhan and Changsha will begin to experience the process of rain-to-snow at night, such as Wuhan. It is possible to usher in snowfall this evening, but due to the high ground temperature, the snow will not be obvious. In addition, in Guizhou and the western part of Hunan, freezing rain may start from tonight and will continue until tomorrow. The wet and icy roads may greatly affect the morning peak next Monday.

      Generally speaking, rain, snow and freezing at low temperature in Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi and other places will lead to slippery roads, snow or icy roads. Public travel in these areas needs to pay attention to safety and arrange travel time reasonably.

    The voice of the "top leaders" of the central bank, the General Administration of Financial Supervision and the China Securities Regulatory Commission is an important signal.

      BEIJING, Dec. 5 (Reporter Li Jinlei) Recently, Pan Gongsheng, Party Secretary and President of the People’s Bank of China, Li Yunze, Party Secretary and Director of the State Financial Supervision and Administration, and Yi Huiman, Party Secretary and Chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, were interviewed by the media, publicly speaking, responding to hot issues in financial work and releasing important signals.

      On serving the real economy

      Promote the financing cost of the real economy to decrease steadily.

      Serving the real economy is the bounden duty and fundamental purpose of finance. The Central Financial Work Conference clearly requires that "finance should provide high-quality services for economic and social development".

      How to serve the real economy?

      Pan Gongsheng said: First, pay more attention to cross-cyclical and counter-cyclical adjustment, and maintain a reasonable growth in the total amount of money and credit and the scale of social financing. Second, strengthen coordination and cooperation with fiscal and regulatory policies, and continuously increase support for major strategies, key areas and weak links. The third is to reasonably grasp the interest rate level and promote the steady decline of financing costs in the real economy. The fourth is to coordinate the internal and external balance and maintain the basic stability of the RMB exchange rate at a reasonable and balanced level.

      Yi Huiman said that the capital market is not large in the whole financial market, but it has unique advantages in serving the real economy. In the next step, we will adhere to the problem orientation, be honest and innovative, and launch more pragmatic measures around improving the function of the capital market. First, promote the stock issuance registration system to go deep and practical. Second, improve the multi-level capital market system. Third, vigorously improve the quality of listed companies. Fourth, promote the high-level institutional opening of the capital market.

      On financial supervision

      Resolutely achieve "long teeth with thorns"

      The Central Financial Work Conference requires that financial supervision should be comprehensively strengthened to effectively prevent and resolve financial risks. Effectively improve the effectiveness of financial supervision, bring all financial activities under supervision according to law, comprehensively strengthen institutional supervision, behavioral supervision, functional supervision, penetrating supervision and continuous supervision, eliminate regulatory gaps and blind spots, strictly enforce the law, dare to show their swords, and severely crack down on illegal financial activities.

      How to effectively improve the effectiveness of financial supervision?

      Li Yunze said that in the next step, we will focus on strong supervision and strict supervision, resolutely achieve "long teeth with thorns" and continuously improve the forward-looking, accurate, effective and synergistic supervision. First, comprehensively strengthen the "five major supervision". The second is to strictly enforce the law and dare to show the sword. The third is to strengthen supervision and protection.

      He pointed out that the chaos in the financial market should be thoroughly rectified, so as to adhere to principles, dare to face difficulties, treat people equally, and be fair and just. Focus on the "key things" that affect financial stability, "key people" that cause major financial risks, and "key behaviors" that undermine market order, and really hit the board accurately and hurt.

      Yi Huiman said that in the next step, we will focus on improving the adaptability and pertinence of supervision and create a more favorable environment for the reform and development of the capital market. First, make every effort to maintain the stable operation of the capital market. The second is to implement the main responsibility of supervision. The third is to resolutely eliminate the regulatory vacuum. The fourth is to strengthen supervision capacity building.

      Lian Ping, chairman of China Chief Economist Forum and vice president of Shanghai Economic Association, believes that in the next few years, comprehensively strengthening financial supervision will become the top priority of China’s financial work, which will help accelerate the construction of a modern financial system with China characteristics and provide a healthy and stable financial environment for the high-quality development of China’s economy.

      Dong Ximiao, the chief researcher of Zhaolian and a part-time researcher at the Institute of Finance of Fudan University, believes that this will help reduce the regulatory gap, bring all financial activities into supervision, and ensure that financial supervision has no dead ends, no blind spots and no exceptions.

      On preventing and resolving financial risks

      Accelerate the reform of small and medium-sized financial institutions.

      The central financial work conference pointed out that "there are still many hidden dangers in economic and financial risks" and demanded that "the risks of small and medium-sized financial institutions should be handled in time".

      Pan Gongsheng pointed out that the People’s Bank of China will cooperate with relevant departments and a few provinces where high-risk institutions are relatively concentrated to formulate and implement the reform plan for small and medium-sized banks, further reduce the number and risk level of high-risk institutions, handle financial risks according to the principles of marketization and rule of law, and protect the interests of the largest number of depositors, small and medium-sized investors and the insured according to law.

      Li Yunze said that in the next step, we will adhere to goal orientation and problem orientation, resolutely fight tough battles and protracted wars, with the focus on accelerating the reform of small and medium-sized financial institutions. First, adhere to a safe and orderly manner. The second is the precise policy of classification. The third is to deepen both the symptoms and the root causes.

      Dong Ximiao analyzed that both Pan Gongsheng and Li Yunze mentioned the reform and risk reduction of small and medium-sized financial institutions. Under the complicated internal and external environment, the central financial work conference should be held as an opportunity to further promote and deepen the reform and risk reduction of small and medium-sized banks, and at the same time build high-quality small and medium-sized banks into "specialized and innovative" banks.

    One mountain, one water, one person, one leaf, one tree and one inheritance. Yibayue Mountain Range, Gulong Town, Yuxiu Dazu District, Zhong Ling, has dense forests, tinkling springs and rich humanities. Not only that, the history of Zen tea, which extends for thousands of years, is an important part of Dazu culture inheritance. As early as the Northern Song Dynasty, Bayue Mountain produced famous tea, so it was named "Shuinan Tea" because it was located in the south of Fujiang River. Bayue "Shuinan Tea" and Guanghan "Zhaopo", Emei "Baiya" and Ya ‘an "Mengding" are also called the four treasures of Shu tea, and they are fragrant in all directions.
    The hand-made technique of Dazu Gulong Longya green tea originated from Chen Chunyu, a tea artist in Guangxu period of Qing Dynasty, and has been passed down from generation to generation. In September, 2020, the hand-made skills of Dazu Gulong Longya green tea were listed in the seventh batch of representative projects of district-level intangible cultural heritage in Dazu District. "We are very confident in the quality of Gulong tea, so we went to Chengdu to participate in the Tea Fighting Competition, and we look forward to helping the construction of the Shuangcheng Economic Circle in Chengdu and Chongqing with practical actions." Chen Wenjing, the inheritor of Dazu Gulong Longya green tea handcrafting skill, introduced that the judges comprehensively evaluated and scored the tea samples submitted for the competition in terms of shape, soup color, taste, aroma and leaf bottom. "Gulong tea stands out from the participating tea samples, which will greatly enhance the brand reputation and greatly help the non-genetic inheritance."

    According to reports, Gulong Town is committed to doing two articles on "tea" and "mine", making full use of its own unique resources, focusing on the development idea of integrating agriculture, literature and tourism, deepening the cultural connotation, improving tourism facilities, accelerating the formation of a "tea sea fragrance, Zen life" resort, and striving to create a new Gulong that is small and special, small and refined, small and beautiful, small and strong, and small and rich. This makes Chen Wenjing see the hope that the non-legacy tea will glow with new vitality.
    At present, Dazu Gulong Tea Co., Ltd. has more than 1,000 mu of ecological tea garden and more than 800 mu of wilderness tea garden, with rich varieties of tea, mainly producing black tea and green tea, which has driven the employment and income of local residents with "one leaf". "We are reviving the abandoned tea garden and driving farmers around the tea garden to take the road of integrated development of tea tourism and build a beautiful village together." Chen Wenjing said that non-genetic inheritors also went to schools such as Gulong Town Central Primary School to lead students to understand the tea culture in their hometown and sow the seeds of loving their hometown in their young hearts.
    "In the early morning, the fog in the mountains hangs over this tea garden …" Chen Wenjing, born after 1980s, often incarnates as an anchor, promoting the Gulong tea and Dazu beauty in the form of short videos. She said that Dazu stone carvings are world-famous and Dazu tourism is booming. I hope that tourists can not only appreciate the stone carving culture in Dazu, but also stop and walk into the tea garden to taste the sweetness and sweetness of Gulong tea and feel the tranquility and peace from the heart.
