by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on June 26 will be engaged in tackling typical issues
faced by countries involved in China and the Belt and Road Initiative. According to the statement of the univer上海乌托邦
sity organizers, over 10 countries and regions will be involved in the program that includes 13 projects.
上海乌托邦The projects cover research and surveys on specific themes before com
ing up with solutions to problems related to the environment, medicine and civil engineering.
Ten of the projects will be carried out during the summer, while the remaining thre上海乌托邦品茶微信
e will be held in winter, from December to January next year. Each project will last between two and four weeks.
上海乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.
“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

“The program will definitely motivate them to realize their social responsi

Cao will lead one of the teams in investigations of villages in Zhejiang province’s Lishui city.
This project will involve setting up furniture and facilities that are
urgently needed by residents. The team will later visit villages in the Italian Alps to explore ne上海乌托邦品茶微信
w development models for locals, and compare the practices for these two countries.
“The project is designed for those majoring in architecture, city planning, sociology, and other上海乌托邦品茶微信

ed the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l 上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.
Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes－with Ca

hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.
“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦

Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr

earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo

The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid

“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ

how diverse and intriguing the Spanish culture is through dance performances, film screenings, concerts, foods and more. Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.
2-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.
Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信
able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.
To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete
and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.
Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand
violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.
The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.
The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa
d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
