Hunting, Blood Suspicion, East Love, Gao Cangjian, Yamaguchi Momoe, Honami Suzuki … Which Japanese film and television drama do you remember?

Hirokazu Koreeda’s film "The Thieves’ Family" set off a modest Japanese film and television craze after meeting domestic audiences this year. In fact, as the main carrier of Japanese culture, Japanese film and television works have always enjoyed a good audience relationship in China, and many of them have left a deep impression on China audiences, which can still trigger collective memories and arouse great resonance today.

It can be said that these Japanese film and television works participated in our youth memories. Nowadays, in the era of high-definition images flying all over the sky, I will recall those pictures with some color distortion and blurred images, but what remains in my mind is extremely clear and sincere emotions! This beautiful memory is like washed gold in the years. It will not really pass away because of the long time, but let everyone who has loved and been young hide and shine in their hearts.

Chasing: The Male Aesthetic Changes Brought by "Looking for Gao Cangjian"

Back to 40 years ago, the conclusion of the Sino-Japanese Treaty of Peace and Friendship opened a honeymoon period of bilateral relations. In order to further strengthen cultural exchanges between the two countries, two Japanese films, Chasing and Witness, were introduced in succession for the first time that year. As soon as these two films were released, they immediately caused a sensation.

Objectively looking at the quality of the two films, both of which are directed by Junya Sato’s works, "Witness" expresses much higher awareness of social problems and profound excavation of human nature than "Chasing". However, in the eyes of Chinese mainland audience at that time, Hunting, a suspense action film starring Gao Cangjian two years ago (1976), undoubtedly had a charm that was more suitable for the audience. Du Qiu, the tough guy prosecutor portrayed by Gao Cangjian in the film, is unsmiling but affectionate; Mayumi, played by Ryoko Nakano, is passionate, dare to love and hate; Yoshio Harada’s character, Yacun Sheriff, is smart, handsome and upright. In addition, the background of the whole story shuttles back and forth among the colorful city scenes and beautiful mountains and forests in the Japanese metropolis. The plot is in the sky, the protagonist is on the run, and the process of solving the case is full of crises and layers of progress. Finally, the grievances are washed away and the beauty is finally returned. It can be described as hearty!

In essence, this film follows the routine of all classic heroic legendary adventure stories, and the characters also have distinctive comic characteristics. It can be said that it is a Japanese version that imitates American action movies in large numbers and belongs to the most acceptable model in popular culture. Although this film style was not new in other countries in the world at that time, many China audiences were shocked when they first saw such an impact film, which caused the streets and lanes to discuss and even imitate the classic scenes in the film. For example, "Keiji Yokomichi" was originally the name of a character in the film, but because of its impressive image, it was extended into a popular term at that time in China and became a synonym; For example, at that time, young people who were fashionable in the streets and lanes liked to have long sideburns, so-called "Yacuntou", mainly because the police chief Yacuntou in the film was so handsome.

The tough guy image of Du Qiu played by Gao Cangjian is sought after by countless boys and girls in the society; At that time, there was a popular quip: "Jump, you jump, you will melt in the blue sky …", which comes from a plot paragraph at the end of the film; Even the famous comic dialogue Chess has a large parody of the film lines and theme songs. Its various phenomena are enough to prove how much social sensation this film caused at that time.

The horses galloped in the streets of Tokyo, and the leading horse, the bordeaux horse, was like a fire carrying a couple of lovers to break through the encirclement of the police … This heroic and extreme romance subconsciously released the audience’s long-cherished desire. Mayumi’s heroic temperament image also seems to be a symbol of a new generation of women’s self-liberation. No wonder when asked about the audience of that year, they all expressed their deep impression on this passage in the film.

Special mention should be made to the prosecutor Du Qiu played by Gao Cangjian, whose tough appearance and personality have deeply influenced the aesthetics of many audiences. The so-called men bleed without tears, iron shoulders bear morality, and righteousness stays in the world. This kind of screen image was brought into the hearts of mainland audiences through Gao Cangjian’s interpretation, which corrected the once popular image of "butter kid" on the screen at that time and became the idol of the times. Asked about the older generation’s views on Hunting, they paid tribute to Gao Cangjian. Zhang Yimou, the film director, has repeatedly mentioned that his idol is Gao Cangjian in various interviews and reports. At the same time, Gao Cangjian was also the original motivation for his decision to shoot "Riding Alone for a Thousand Miles".

Now that Mr. Gao Cangjian has passed away, compared with the changes of male images in Asian popular culture, it is really a sigh that time has passed and people and things have changed.

Love Story in Tokyo: The Enlightenment of Love and Li Xiang

When the time came to 1995, the accumulation and achievements of reform and opening up in the past 20 years not only enriched people’s material life, but also greatly enriched people’s spiritual and cultural life with the influx of new dramas and movies one after another. Therefore, this year, when "Tokyo Love Story" was broadcast on Shanghai TV, there was no grand occasion of the national "Hunting" and "Blood Suspicion".

However, the good drama will not be buried after all. Although the drama is no longer popular among the older generation of Japanese drama audiences, Love Story in Tokyo has gained excellent reputation and good ratings among the new youth groups after 70 s and 80 s, once again detonating the topic about Japanese drama.

Compared with the series seen by Chinese audiences in the past, the overall style of Tokyo Love Story is more modern. Although the drama was broadcast in Japan in 1991 and received a good response, it was introduced several years later in China, but its portrayal and depiction of the love stories of white-collar young people in modern metropolis still has a very fashionable impression for Chinese audiences. Different from the past, this drama no longer takes bitterness and loyalty as the selling point to earn the audience’s tears. Both the male and female protagonists in the drama have different personalities and emotional demands from traditional behaviors and values in their thoughts and behaviors. The whole plot almost no longer involves the role of the parents of the characters in the play, and the love between young men and women is completely independent. The love triangle, swinging from side to side, and even cheating are all manifested, but because the characters are so authentic, especially the heroine is extremely cute, everyone who has seen this classic Japanese drama will be deeply attracted by it. Although Wanzhi left Chiminglixiang in the play, Chiminglixiang became the ideal girlfriend in the eyes of countless men outside the play.

The author has communicated with many post-80s generations who have seen this Japanese TV series, and found that in their memory, this TV series can almost become a textbook for men and women’s emotional enlightenment, and even often analyzes and judges the characters in their own lives in order to make rational and correct decisions in their emotional life. The topic that people relish is: Is it a correct choice for Li Xiang to give up the final treatment? Does the swing in Wanji’s personality prove that he is really a childish "love rat" inside? Is Rimei, who ended up with Wanji, a "scheming woman"? All kinds of arguments have been going on for many years, and with the spread of the influence of the drama, it is widespread among Asian audiences, which is enough to express the audience’s love for this 12-episode TV series.

It is said that the colonnade of the primary school engraved with the names of Li Xiang and Wan Zhi has not been demolished so far, and the park where they met for the first time and broke up for the last time in the play is still there. At last, the station where Li Xiang broke up with Wan Zhi has now become the most popular couple’s shrine in Japan, and many people, like Li Xiang, have written their wishes on a white scarf and tied them to the railing. Readers who have the opportunity to travel to Japan may still find all kinds of places where the two left memories in the film. I won’t tell you much if I sell it here. Let’s look for clues in the play.

Yamaguchi Momoe: Natural Beauty and Myth Created by Retirement.

After The Hunt and The Witness, Chinese mainland’s classic masterpieces such as Sandware, The Call of the Distant Mountain, Happy Huang Shoupa and so on came on the screen one after another. At the same time, during this historical period, with the gradual acceleration of China’s reform and opening-up, Chinese people have also become rich rapidly, and televisions that were previously unthinkable have actually entered thousands of households. In 1984, a Japanese TV series called "Blood Suspicion" was broadcast on CCTV. The broadcast of this film immediately caused a sensation at that time. It is definitely not an exaggeration for thousands of families to watch "Blood Suspicion".

The heroine of the play is played by Yamaguchi Momoe, a popular Japanese actress. The TV series was originally filmed in 1975, and it took nearly 10 years for China audiences to see it. Yamaguchi Momoe was only 16 years old when he filmed this TV series. The ups and downs of the characters’ emotional experiences, together with leukemia, the mystery of life, the love between brother and sister and so on, attracted the audience firmly in front of the TV set like magic. This TV series, which only broadcasts one episode every Sunday, has become the focus of discussion among the whole people. Some people even feel miserable because the heroine Xing Zi was finally killed by illness. Yamaguchi Momoe’s hairstyle in the play and several styles of sweaters she wore led the fashion of young people in China at that time.

The two actors in and out of the play also have a sincere and passionate love under the long-term coexistence. In 1980, just as Yamaguchi Momoe’s acting career was at its peak, he suddenly announced his retirement and married his long-term partner, Tomokazu Miura. This incident also became the topic of the whole Japanese entertainment circle at that time. This couple has been married for nearly 40 years now, which is a real version of golden couple.

Yamaguchi Momoe’s popularity in China has attracted many fans to explore and recognize her whole acting career. Born in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1959, this poor girl was forced to live with her mother and grandparents separately because the landlord refused to take in her mother and daughter who were born out of wedlock. Although her grandparents loved her very much, she had to return to her parents’ family when she was four years old. In the Japanese society at that time, the mother toiled alone to support the family, but the father was unwilling to pay a penny for the maintenance. Being from a poor family, she had to take care of her sister in childhood and help her family share a job as soon as possible. Yamaguchi Momoe worked as a newspaper deliveryman in primary school, and soon after he went to middle school, he thought of graduating early and becoming a beautician, so that he could earn more money to subsidize his family.

Perhaps the fond memory of her mother singing while sitting in front of a sewing machine in her childhood made Yamaguchi Momoe interested in performing arts. In 1972, 13-year-old Yamaguchi Momoe heard that she had the opportunity to participate in the singing contest of "The Birth of a New Star", so she signed up with the mentality of giving it a try. Unexpectedly, this seemingly rash decision unexpectedly changed Yamaguchi Momoe’s life. Yamaguchi Momoe won a full house with her simple and beautiful image, positive and optimistic attitude towards life and unique singing style, and began her brilliant acting career.

In 1974, Yamaguchi Momoe met Tomokazu Miura, then 22 years old, in an advertisement for shooting chocolate. They were presented in the advertisement with extremely youthful and energetic attitude, which is a model of the image endorsement of Showa Children. In the same year, the two co-produced the film The Dancer of Izu. This film is adapted from Nobel Prize in Literature winner Yasunari Kawabata’s early work of the same name. Yamaguchi Momoe’s first film performance rewarded the audience who expected her with excellent results. She plays the role of smoked inferiority with tenacity in her bones and a trace of melancholy in her innocence, which can be said to be a perfect interpretation of this classic literature.

With the success of her career, Yamaguchi Momoe began to make film appointments constantly, and her singing career was booming. In 1975, she held her first solo concert, which was a great success. Later, she cooperated with Tomokazu Miura for many times, making films such as Chao Sao, The Age of First Love and Farewell, as well as the TV series "Blood Suspicion" mentioned earlier. They were praised as golden couple on the screen by the audience at that time. Her lovely image, as well as the positive and tenacious character experienced in her early years in a difficult life, make the characters she created have a strong sense of hierarchy and complex internal personality, all of which mark the birth of a talented actress.

The charm of Yamaguchi Momoe lies in its natural beauty. She is tough in weakness, full of enthusiasm in elegance, and her poor background naturally makes her an audience. She looks special, not a standard beauty face, but she is very attractive. When Gong Li made her debut, some people described her as having two "Yamaguchi Momoe-style tiger teeth".

Just as her career was approaching its peak, in 1979, Tomokazu Miura, who was seven years older than her, finally proposed to her formally. Yamaguchi Momoe didn’t hesitate to agree, because in her opinion, two people seem to have been together for a long time, and are destined to accompany each other for life in the future. In 1980, before Yamaguchi Momoe and Tomokazu Miura were officially married, they suddenly announced their decision to quit the show business and prepare to concentrate on family life at home in the future. The real reasons for Yamaguchi Momoe’s withdrawal are still controversial. There is a saying that the author feels closer to the truth-it is said that Yamaguchi Momoe was so popular at that time that she wanted to fly solo. The agent who had agreed to help her become independent went back on her word and betrayed Yamaguchi Momoe. She realized that the glamorous life in the entertainment industry was full of institutional calculations, and she was really tired and disgusted. After many thoughts, she decided to quit the entertainment industry. It is said that when the decision was made, most people were against it. Only Tomokazu Miura stood by her side and fully supported her decision to live a strong life. Her feelings for Tomokazu Miura far exceeded the friendship between ordinary couples. After full withdrawal, she can not only concentrate on living a quiet life with Tomokazu Miura, but also take this opportunity to severely retaliate against the once treacherous company.

After Yamaguchi Momoe quit, as she promised, she would never come back and concentrate on housework. Nearly 40 years later, the marriage between Yamaguchi Momoe and Tomokazu Miura is still stable and is regarded as a rare model.

* The exclusive manuscript of Wenhui, please indicate the source.

It is difficult for residents in Daxing, Beijing to go to work: four modes of travel are inconvenient, and residents call for this kind of car.

In 2016, Mr. Zhang lived in Mantingchun Community, Caiyu Town, Daxing. Since then, he has to take the government commuter bus to work in the city every day, with a one-way distance of about 45 kilometers. In recent years, with the development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration, the permanent population of Caiyu Town has soared, and the travel needs of residents have seriously exceeded the carrying capacity of commuter cars.
There is a long queue at the starting station of picking and breeding in the city.
None of the four modes of travel is convenient.
The commuter car in Mr. Zhang’s mouth was opened by the Caiyu Town Government around 2014. Commuters use regular long-distance buses, and each bus is limited to 55 passengers. Every morning from 6: 00 to 8: 30, there are 10 buses from Caiyu Central Primary School to the city, passing through the Beijing-Shanghai Expressway, and directly reaching the vicinity of Shilihe subway station. According to Mr. Zhang, if there are no unexpected situations such as traffic jams, this journey only takes 40 minutes.
But in fact, the capacity of commuter bus in the morning is far from meeting the needs of residents in Caiyu Town. According to Mr. Zhang’s statistics, at present, the number of people who commute to work in Caiyu Town every day is about 2,000, but ten shuttle buses can only transport 550 people. Getting on the government shuttle bus on time every day has become the greatest wish of the breeder every day.
At the Caiyu Central Primary School at the bus departure station, Mr. Zhang told the reporter: "In order to get on the bus at 7: 00 in the morning, I started waiting for the bus half an hour in advance, but the queue number has exceeded 100." Mr. Zhang said while showing photos to reporters.
When the reporter visited the site, he found that although the commuter bus has several stations in Caiyu Town, each station radiates to crowded areas such as schools and communities, most people will choose to queue up at the departure station. If the commuter bus is full at the starting station, it is even more difficult to get on the bus from the next few stations. "Now, not only Caiyu Town, but also people in other areas are convenient. Driving to the starting station in the morning to grab a car with us will make our pressure even greater."
Many people queue up hopelessly, give up commuting cars and look for carpooling opportunities.
Mr. Ma, who works in the West Fourth Ring Road, has the same feeling. In order to catch the government bus on time every day, he usually arrives at the bus departure station before 7 o’clock. Even so, it takes an hour to get on the bus. Mr. Ma used to drive himself to work, but the fuel consumption cost of going back and forth for more than 70 kilometers a day was too high. "If you can’t sit at the starting station of the shuttle bus after 7: 30, you can only choose to carpool or take a black car to the city." The reporter learned that carpooling is very common in picking and breeding. There are five carpooling groups in Mr. Ma’s WeChat, each with 500 people. "Even carpooling is very difficult, and people are full as soon as the car stops at the roadside."
If you can’t catch up with the bus and carpooling, and the cost of driving to work is too high, then there is only one last way to go to work from Caiyu: customized buses such as "catching the bus". Mr. Zhang remembers that he took the "catching the bus" to work, and the bus was stopped by the traffic police twice on the way.
Always ask when you see the bus coming.
In addition to the morning rush hour, the evening rush hour is not easy. At the rush hour last weekend, the reporter went to the starting station of Jinsong to check the situation. Compared with a few years ago, there was still no sign on the commuter car for picking and breeding on the path in front of the Fulton apartment. Passengers routinely lined up here, and the team was very messy. And some unidentified buses are also attracting customers.
At about 6 pm, the number of people waiting in line exceeded 60. Many people can tell from the length of the queue whether they can get on the next bus. The passengers showed the reporter a departure schedule. The departure interval ranged from 15 minutes to half an hour, but it happened that the departure interval was widened during the rush hour. For example, after 6: 50 pm, the next departure time was 7: 30 pm, with an interval of 40 minutes.
Worried about the long interval between commuter trains, there are alternatives, but they are not formal. In the queue of carpooling, some people are handing out leaflets and enthusiastically introducing other modes of riding. The reporter saw at the scene that some irregular buses would appear in people’s sight from time to time. In the passenger’s words, as long as it is a bus to collect and cultivate, everyone wants to take it, and the fare of some cars is lower than that of the government commuter bus.
According to the driver of the government commuter bus, the commuter bus has been in a state of "losing money". They also know that passengers have a desire to add a car, but it is difficult at present, because there is no commuter car parking lot near Jinsong, and it is impossible to start in the opposite direction. As for whether the departure time can be adjusted, "it needs to be decided by Caiyu Town".
Residents look forward to commuting by bus.
The starting station returning from the urban area to collect and cultivate is overcrowded.
The reporter learned that there are three bus lines passing through Caiyu Town, but the set route is not convenient for office workers. The first is Xing 32, which passes through Yizhuang subway station, which is convenient for Caiyu residents to transfer to the subway process. However, it takes about 2 hours to get from Caiyu to Yizhuang, followed by 940, which starts from Caiyu all the way west, passes through Daxing Huangcun subway station, and finally passes through Jiugong subway station. Although both trains pass through the subway, they do not take the high speed. For passengers, it takes time to take the bus.
Many residents told reporters that the permanent population of Caiyu Town has surged in the past two years, but the number of commuter buses has never increased, and other modes of travel are inconvenient, so the problem of difficult travel needs to be solved urgently.
The reporter was informed that as early as 2016, it was reported that the government’s commuter bus was going to be reformed, which means that the commuter bus can not only run all day, but also the departure interval is greatly shortened, which is undoubtedly good news. However, in response to a reporter recently, the Caiyu Town Government said that the related issues of commuting bus are still in the discussion stage. Although residents often ask about this matter, the specific time is still uncertain.

The Secret of "Bird’s Nest" Fireworks (I): Let’s see how peony blooms.

  On August 8, the 29th Summer Olympic Games opened at the Beijing National Stadium, and gorgeous fireworks reflected the night sky in Beijing. China News Agency issued Wang Dongming photo

  China News Service, August 8 th: The Secret of the "Bird’s Nest" Fireworks (I): Look at how the peony blooms.

  China News Service reporter Wu Qingcai

  At the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games tonight, red peonies are in full bloom over the "Bird’s Nest", and there are many strange shapes such as the Olympic rings and the dove of peace. So, how on earth are the peonies blooming over the Bird’s Nest?

  Zhao Weiping, the commander-in-chief of the "Bird’s Nest" and the Great Wall fireworks display team at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games, revealed to our reporter the secrets of the seven classic shapes of fireworks that night.

  The First Classic Modeling-How Peony Blooms

  The first climax of the "Bird’s Nest" is to interpret the whole process of peony, the national flower, from budding to blooming, and suddenly the Bird’s Nest turns into a red ocean of peony. From the blossoming of flowers and bones to the "relay" opening of petals, and then to the blooming of peony, the blooming process of "peony blossom" took only eleven seconds, but the number of fireworks was 4,845.

  Zhao Weiping, chairman of the national brand Panda Fireworks Company, said that in order to make the whole red peony cover the whole bird’s nest, the "Peony Blossom" was set off all the steel frames at the top of the bird’s nest and the upper edge of the bowl of the bird’s nest. In order to choose the right color and fully show the elegance and wealth of peony, the designers of Panda Fireworks screened dozens of schemes and finally chose a peach red.

  Using the three-dimensional special effects of the computer, the designer drew a huge peony covering the roof of the "Bird’s Nest", and then selected 85 points on the roof of the "Bird’s Nest", each of which was responsible for emitting three petals, each of which was composed of 29 fireworks, symbolizing the 29th Olympic Games.

  "Eighty-five points have different inclination angles, so as to draw a peony flower that is natural." Zhao Weiping said that when setting off, the "flower heart" was emitted from the inside to the outside, and then the innermost "petal" was emitted, which in turn went over to the outermost petal. When the last petal was opened, 85 points were started at the same time, and fireworks were fired in unison, forming a big peony with bright red and unrestrained enthusiasm.

  The Second Classic Modeling ―― Turning out the "Olympic Five Rings"

  That night, five circles of five colors, red, yellow, green, black and basket, appeared in the sky, and the five circles were connected with each other, showing the Olympic rings pattern.

  "Playing the Olympic rings pattern, some Olympic host cities also had this idea, but it didn’t work out." Zhao Weiping told reporters: The biggest difficulty in displaying the Olympic rings and other patterns with fireworks is that the initiation point and time interval of fireworks are difficult to control. The interval error of each fireworks is less than 0.03 seconds, and the audience can see the circle and the five rings only when they are fired in series at a constant speed. Finally, under the guarantee of new scientific research technologies such as air launch and chip fireworks, the global problem of depicting the Olympic rings with fireworks was completely solved by China fireworks people.

  The Third Classic Modeling ―― "Silver Waterfall" Flows into the Stand

  During the opening ceremony, there was a "silver waterfall" nearly 40 meters long, like the Milky Way, which slowly hung down along the bowl of the "Bird’s Nest" and flowed into the stadium. The "Bird’s Nest" stand immediately turned into a silver hall. Fireworks exploded around, but the audience couldn’t smell a trace of sulfur, and there was no worry about sparks.

  Zhao Weiping said that the diameter of the bowl of the "Bird’s Nest" is about 500 meters, which is more than 40 meters above the ground. This shape requires that the diameter of the "Silver Waterfall" should not be less than 500 meters and the length should not be less than 30 meters, otherwise, the audience will not be able to be there. In order to realize this idea, Panda Fireworks Man has broken through four major problems: environmental protection, safety, tasteless, discharge, quick installation and quick disassembly.

  The Fourth Classic Modeling ―― "Dove of Peace" Bird’s Nest "Spreading Wings"

  Careful viewers will find that a pair of snow-white wings were born on both sides of the "Bird’s Nest", flapping up and down, just like a dove spreading its wings and flying.

  Zhao Weiping told reporters that it is not difficult for the "Bird’s Nest" to give birth to "wings". What is difficult is that the wings should be flapped up and down, showing a dove of peace spreading its wings and flying dynamically. In order to make this dove of peace "smart", the researchers first improved the discharge effect of the traditional fireworks element "white tail", which has only white light and no track left by the tail passing through the air, just like the wings of the dove of peace. In order to make the wings move, the researchers calculated the flapping frequency of the flying dove of peace, so that the "Bird’s Nest dove of peace" fluttered its wings once a second on average.

  The Fifth Classic Modeling ―― Dynamic World of "Red Flash Bird’s Nest"

  Its modeling features are as follows: a red silk thread runs through the "Bird’s Nest" as red neon lights keep flashing, and under its embellishment, the whole "Bird’s Nest"

  "In the flashing, running, jumping.

  Zhao Weiping said that the first difficulty of the "Red Flash Bird’s Nest" lies in the layout. In order to cover the entire "Bird’s Nest", a launching point should be set up every five meters on each main beam; At the junction of the two main beams, a launching point is also set up every five meters, and all launching points are evenly distributed, so that the whole "Bird’s Nest" can jump in the red ocean; The second difficulty lies in the time difference control, and the fireworks at each point must be lit and extinguished at the same time.

  The Sixth Classic Modeling ―― "Opening the Tianmen"

  Its modeling features are: a resplendent arched gate, which appears over the "Bird’s Nest". From closing the door and opening a crack to opening half and three quarters until the Golden Gate finally opens.

  Zhao Weiping said, "Opening the Tianmen Gate" is difficult to measure in the distance and angle between the ground and air. The distance between the first group of emission points and the angle with the horizontal plane must ensure that the emitted fireworks meet in the air and hand over an arch shape; The distance and horizontal angle between the second group of fireworks must ensure that when the fireworks meet in the air, there is just a gap, just like the door has just opened a gap, and so on, until the Golden Gate opens, the angle is a little off, so the process of opening the door cannot be vividly reproduced.  

  The Seventh Classic Modeling-"Countdown" Entering "Olympic Time and Space"

  9, 8, 7 … At the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, the first thing that appeared in the air was flashing numbers, which sent a strong signal in fireworks language: the Olympic Games is near! Zhao Weiping introduced that the number nine drawn with fireworks stays in the air for no less than one second. As soon as the number nine goes out, it lights up at eight and flashes again for one second. "If any number stays even in the blink of an eye, the fireworks will not draw a countdown stopwatch, which is synchronized with the stopwatch and does not allow any error.".

Tianjin: Deploy the target in stages and promote the construction of financial innovation operation demonstration zone.

  According to 21st century business herald, the reporter noted that the Tianjin Municipal People’s Government issued the "Proposal on Further Promoting the Construction of Financial Innovation Operation Demonstration Zone" on January 8. The plan points out the overall goal of the future in three time periods: in the next three years, it will continue to maintain the leading position in the financial leasing and commercial factoring industries in China, and at the same time create a number of financial agglomeration symbol areas with themes and characteristics. In the next five years, the added value of the financial industry will account for about 15% of the regional GDP, and the overall asset scale of leasing will reach 2.7 trillion yuan. The scale of leasing and disposal of aircraft, international shipping vessels and offshore platforms will remain above 80% in the whole country, and the total assets and factoring financing balance of the commercial factoring industry will remain the first in the country. In 2035, a world-class national leasing innovation demonstration zone and a national commercial factoring capital will be built in an all-round way, which will provide a practical sample for China’s characteristic financial development.
