Guests moved through the verdant, clipped lawns of Mount St. Mary University Los
Angeles campus recently making their way to Amat House, where documentarian Chris D. Nebe’s new film, Yib 爱上海女神会所
in: Golden Gateway to the Yangtze River, showed them a side of China rarely seen by foreigners.
爱上海The film incorporates striking images of evocative ancient petroglyphs depict

The film showcases Yibin as the classic embodiment of the Chinese Dream, a vibrant

As part of China’s historic Tea Horse Road, Yibin has been an important trading center for ov
er 2,200 years. In the past, it has been most famous for its tea, liquor, calligraphy, and bamboo. To
day, the city is also moved into manufacturing automobiles, high-tech mobile phones, and medical devices. 爱上海女神会所
“I didn’t choose Yibin, Yibin chose me, but it’s a really fascinating plac
e,” Nebe said, adding that his aim with this film was to paint a different picture of China. 爱上海
Nebe started his career as a film distributor in Germany before turning to documentary writing and directing. To date, he

The director feels that Western prejudices often prevent them from being open to understanding China.
“The West has too much fear and inherent racism,” he told Xinhua.
ther professional measure that relates to safety. Anyone without experience climbing mountains above 8,000 meters, and w
ithout adequate capability for independent movement is not allowed on Mount Qomolangma,” he said.
Both overseas and domestic climbers must apply as part of a team, not personally, he said.
Tibet installed a new ladder in a section of the climbing route in 2017, and provided c
limbing ropes as long as 6,000 meters along the path between a section at 6,600 meters and the summit at 8,844 meters.
Cleanup efforts on the mountain involve both environmental considerations and climbing safety. T

Father-sharing”, a mini interactive program on WeChat platform, recently went viral on social media.
Although the name suggests it is taking the sharing business to a whole new level, the program
is just a promotion campaign by the Guangdong-based furniture maker Oppein.
Similar to a ride-hailing app, the mini program shows different kinds of “fathers” – businessmen, athletes, etc. Users can choose their f
avorite one, just like they select a car. Once the selection is done, a video pops up to explain what exactly is “father-sharing”.
The over 5-minute video focuses on the important role fathers play in raisi
ng a child. Most dads are busy with their work and it’s hard for them to spend time with their c
hildren, and that is where the idea of “father-sharing” business took shape. At the end of the film, the protagonist, a “sh
ared father”, decides to quit his job because he believes family matters, and it cannot be replaced.
ouths who traveled rose by 101 percent year-on-year, compared with 50 per
cent among peers in bigger cities, according to major online travel agency Ctrip.
Ruan Tianying, deputy general manager of Western-style food chain Houcaller, said t
hat with fastgrowing urbanization in China, lower-tier cities definitely offer great potential.
Houcaller, founded in Xiamen, Fujian province, in 1993, plans to operate about 400 store
s in 100 Chinese cities, with more than two-thirds of them located in lower-tier centers by the end of this year.
Ruan said consumption per capita at Houcaller outlets is about
60 yuan, and about 80 percent of its more than 30 million customers a year are age 36 or younger.
“Opening a restaurant involves different factors, so we cannot reach lower-tier cities as quick
ly as fast-moving consumer goods do,” he said, adding that in these cities, the market still needs to be educa
ted about eating Western-style food, which involves a different dining etiquette from Chinese food.
