The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter G

ames was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used

in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonderful legacy story,” said Juan Anto

nio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while p

lanning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic marketing partners and four second-tier spon

sors, while the Games’ licensing program, which was launched early last year, has contributed 257 million yuan ($38

million) in sales of more than 780 types of products with the Winter Games logo as of the first quarter this year.

Some community management companies have been arra

nging separate parking areas where electric bicycles can be charged at night,

and this is a good idea that should be more widely adopted.

ndustry insiders join outlandishly-dressed fans in attending this year’s colorful China International Cartoon & Animation Festival, Xu Fan reports.

It was a rainy morning, but I felt as if I had woken up in a dream world as I pee

red through the window of my Hangzhou hotel room to see hoards of costume-clad fantas

y aficionados waiting in long lines to enter the expo hall of the 15th China International Cartoon & Animation Festival.

Amid this sea of outlandishly-dressed enthusiasts-some of whom could be seen lugging suitcases filled with a diver

se array of wigs, clothes and makeup items-I could make out a Spider-Man, a Fox Spirit (a character f

rom the 2018 China-US film White Snake) and a dozen other popular fantasy figures acted out by role-playing fans.

It was April 30, the first day of the six-day annual festival, the largest and most influential of its kind in China.

It is to be hoped the fire in Guilin will make people think twice about where the

y park and charge their electric bikes, otherwise it is only a matter of time before there is another fatal fire.

Chen said most Chinese scientists and researchers foc

us on translational research that applies a new discovery from basic research and moves it along toward clinical practice.

“But I think Chinese scientists need to focus more on making innovative and new dis

coveries from basic research and develop new methods for cancer treatment from that,” he said.

China and the US are working together in many medical research areas, Chen said, citing the clinica

l practice cooperation between China and large US pharmaceutical companies, which he said is “huge now”.

“The cooperation between specialists and pharmaceutical companies in China and the US can potentially accelerate resea

rch and development of new drugs and translate laboratory findings to treat human cancers,” he said.

Chen said that there are still many other areas in which the US and China can work together.

Identifying a person as spy without evidence

A Western Australian Labor MP, Pierre Yang, was savaged in The Australian on Dec 6 last year because, the paper all

eged, he had spent three months on a Chinese government vessel. This was enough to have him classed as a potential spy.

But it emerges that Yang was serving as an Australian Army reserve c

aptain. He had been mobilized by the Australian Army to serve on the Chinese vessel in the in

ternational search for the missing Malaysian Airline flight MH370 because he was a fluent Mandarin speaker and could ser

ve as liaison officer and linguist. No matter that he was performing duties as an exemplary citizen, his loyalty was impugned.
