A woman gets it into her head that she can never be too th

Zhang Xin, associate professor at the School of Psychological and Cognitive Science at Peking Uni

versity in Beijing, believes “fat talk” may be a way of expressing that “we all share feelings of insecu

rity”.In China, “fat” has become a word that women will do almost anything to avoid being associated with. This is not surpris

ing, given that being slim as a beauty ideal has become the subject of countless newspaper stories, TV comm

ercials and movies, resulting in the almost universal correlation between a slim figure and beauty.

“Women are more likely than men to enjoy chatting with their

peers about weight concerns and body issues, and this ma

y release them from pressure over their weight and serve as a way to bond with their friends,” he said.

But “fat talk” is a double-edged sword. While it may seem a harmless way to ease dissatisfact

ion over body shape by gaining reassurance within a peer group, it can also serve to reinforce negative feelings.

tariff hike against China: Intl responseses on Friday

The United States on Friday raised tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent.

Here is a collection of comments on the tariff hike from analysts and business professionals from around the world.

Rene Pastor, foreign editor, China Daily

Global trade is not a zero-sum game of who gets the most benefits. The decision by President Donald Trump to up the ante in a tra

de dispute by slapping tariffs invites retaliation, as China has threatened to do, and damages a global tra

ding system that in all honesty has lifted all boats in the decades following World War II.

Countries should resist the temptation to treat global trade as purely the aren

a of winners and losers. The idea is to keep talking with the full knowledge that any co

untry, any trading power, will win some and lose some in those negotiations. The consequences and less

ons of history are clear when trade degenerates into a winner-take-all mentality, as was the case during the tim

e of the Great Depression in the 1920s. Everybody lost. We just cannot afford a repeat of that episode in our history.

Enough care has been taken by Haier to customiz

 and localize its products to meet Indian customers’ needs and suit the local conditions.

One such attempt was the “Jahukna Mat” (Hindi for ‘no need to bend‘ or ‘do not bend’) campaign, which aim

ed at avoiding bending by users to put in or bring out commodities stored inside the fridg

e. This was introduced to the Indian market seven years ago, and the concept had an immediate acceptance.

“Traditionally, in the refrigerators, the veggies box was at the bottom

and homemakers had to bend down many times in a day to put in or pull out co

mmodities stored inside the box,” said Eric Braganza, president of Haier Appliances (India).

“After proper product research, we introduced the upside-down concept, and put the veggies box at the top to ensure that p

eople, especially women, avoid bending. This change has been well received by Indian consumers.”

And if some strategies, including efforts to popul

larize winter sports in other parts of the country, succeed, people in not only Northea

st China but also in other regions could be seen playing winter sports in a few years time.

In fact, the number of people involved in winter sports has increased drastically in many cities in the

past few years. For example, Shanghai has 15 ice rinks and seven curling tracks. Southern cities such as Gu

angzhou and Shenzhen are making efforts to promote winter sports and achieved some success.

So despite the foundation of winter sports in China being weak, the general development momentum is optimistic.

In this sense, winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Gam

es is a shot in the arm for winter sports and the winter sports industry in China.

The sports industry’s development, to a large extent, is propelled b

y sports tournaments-which by their very nature cover every aspect of the sports indus

Lion King’ director talks Chinese animation

I’d like to see more films made in China reaching out to the world,” said American dir

ector Rob Minkoff, jury president at the main competition of the 2019 Beijing International Film Festival.

Best known for the celebrated Disney classic The Lion King, Minkoff has also directed a num

ber of animated films including Stuart LittleThe Haunted Mansion and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

In a press conference held last Thursday, Minkoff said Beijing is the heart

of the Chinese film industry. The BIFF attracts film productions from around the world, boo

sting development of filmmaking. With a global jury panel, the festival has become an international affair.

In light of the remarkable progress made by online subscription services like Netflix

and Amazon, Minkoff thinks these platforms offer a promising alternative to big-budget Hollywood blockbusters.

Having closely worked with Netflix on an original animated series based on Anna Dewdney’s picture book franchise Llama Lla

ma, he thinks its business model guarantees more liberty for the creator, thereby leading to more eclectic content.

The campaign launched last year targeting the illegal

dumping of solid waste, especially hazardous waste, along the Yangtze River, will be continued, he said.

Wang, of the NPC committee, also called for more government support to encourage in

vestment from both State-owned and private companies into the hazardous waste treatment sector.

Facilities for hazardous waste disposal should be mandatory at all ind

ustrial parks. And while they should be included into planning for new parks, the constr

uction of such facilities should begin as soon as possible in parks with inadequate facilities, he suggested. Land should b

e set aside so that it could be used to increase processing capacity to meet potential demand, Wang said.

He also suggested making the disclosure of information about hazardous waste mandated by law i

n order to facilitate public supervision. The latest technological innovations such as big data, unm

anned aerial vehicles and remote monitoring should be adopted to tighten supervisory efficiency.

Yu said she has two very good friends who are single

We hang out together every weekend, and I enjoy being with my friends more than going on a date with

someone I just met — that’s why I think I will be not actively looking for a relationship in the next few years,” she added.

Coontz said one reason people are waiting longer to get married is because more of them, es

pecially women, are going to college. Even after graduation, most people want to wait until they have paid

off at least a good portion of their college debt and acquired a steady job, she said.

Two earners are increasingly necessary for people to establish a middle-class lifestyle, so mos

t individuals want to make sure that they and their partner have decent earnings prospects.

“Another part of the answer is that our expectations of marriage — especially women’s expec

tations — are much higher than in the past, and their options outside marriage are greater,” said Coo

ntz. “So, they can be more ‘picky’ about their mates, and they can afford to wait until they find one who suits them.”

According to a folk legend, the deity of the silkwor

 passed Tongxiang and left good luck. Anyone who went out for a hike du

ring the Qingming Festival could take the luck home and get double the harvest of silk. Thus, p

eople hold a ceremony to worship the deity of the silkworm, and other activities to pray for a good silk harvest.

Yvonne Horst, the travel blogger from GoYvon who has lived and worked in China for six years, visited Tongxiang for the first time.

“I haven’t seen a ceremony held in the Qingming Festival. What I k

now about the Qingming Festival is it is a festival to commemorate ancestors. I think it’s just fa

mily members going to sweep tombs together. However, there is such a big event to celebrate the harvest in Ton

gxiang, which gives me a chance to get a deeper understanding of the local culture,” Horst said.

The beautiful spring scenery in Tongxiang fascinated the foreigners as well. They dres

sed in han clothes, appreciated plum blossoms and tasted plum wine. They also tried bamboo wea

ving, fan paintings and other intangible cultural heritage projects themselves to understand the local culture.

Akhil Parashar, a journalist with CRI Online, wore han clothes for the first time.

“I think the city has profound historical and cultural connotations. Wearing such traditional clothes gives me a sense of trave

rsing time and space, and also gives me a more personal experience of Chinese traditional culture,” he said.
