tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

therefore, can be attributed to the uncertainty over their chil

 children’s education-for instance, how many after-school classes should a child take per day and how t

o plan a schedule that would strike the right balance between study and leisure time, homework and hobbies.

Another source of stress for a mom is the relatively rich extra-curricular a

ctivities of other kids, which could prompt her to force her child to do the same. The fear that

her kid would fall behind forces a mom to make the child learn everything that she thinks could be useful.

Chinese parents usually have very high expectations for their kids, so many of them don’t even try to find out what their chil

dren are really good at-and when the kids fail to fulfill their aspirations, the parents feel they have been let down.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.

Pilot blames lightning for deadly crash landingkhoi aircraft

The pilot of a Russian passenger plane that erupted in a ball of fire on the runway of Moscow’s busiest airp

ort, killing 41 of the 78 people aboard, said lightning led to the emergency landing, Agence France-Presse reported.

Investigators on Monday were working to understand the causes of the blaze after the Suk

hoi Superjet-100 returned to Sheremetyevo airport shortly after takeoff on Sunday evening.

Pilot Denis Yevdokimov told Russian media the aircraft lost communication and needed to

switch to emergency control mode “because of lightning” on the Aeroflot flight to the Arctic city of Murmansk.

He did not specify if the plane was struck directly.

“We managed to restore communication through the emergency frequenc

y on our radio connection. But the link was only for a short time and kept cutting out. … It wa

s possible to say only a few words,” he told The Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

Restoration of classic TV series sheds light on nostalgia

Generations of Chinese people growing up between the 1980s and the

early 2000s will no doubt share fond collective memories of spending the long after

noons of their childhood summer vacations squeezed in front of small TV sets watching their favorite shows.

Most people will be able to reel off the names of these productions, which have been broadcast ov

er and over again: the historical detective drama The Arbiter, the martial arts saga Legend of the Drago

nslayer Sword, the fantasy New Legend of Madame White Snake. You name it, we’ve all seen them.

Nevertheless, for the content managers at Youku, one of China’s leading

video streaming platforms, one problem has been bothering them for a long time.

When they finally gained the broadcasting rights for thes

e old drama series – in a bid to tap into people’s nostalgia – they were embarrassed to find users

soon abandoning the series. Some viewers even stopped watching after less than a minute, their big data analysis showed.

It was such a huge temptation that I studied like cra

 to get such scores. I got extremely high marks in the end, but my father failed to keep his pro

mise because the family could not afford the tickets to go to Nanjing,” Zhou said.

“Visiting the bridge had been my dream for many years. Now, my two sisters and I have all m

oved to Nanjing, the provincial capital. It’s a happy coincidence that my family lives near the bridge.”

Lu Andong, a professor with Nanjing University’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning, said the bridge repres

ents the collective memory of several generations and has special meaning for Chinese.

“It employed the country’s most advanced technologies and talented workers when

it was built. It was unique in stimulating cohesion and pride in the whole country,” Lu said.

In 1960, the bridge featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s longest with dual road and rail functions.

How China contributes to ICH safeguarding in the

A country with a long history and rich culture, China, by 2018’s end, h

ad 40 elements listed as UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritages (ICH).

Many of these are in need of urgent safeguarding. How can we best do this? How can we i

Thanks to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible C

ultural Heritage, adopted in 2003, there is now widespread recognition of the impo

rtance of safeguarding living practices, expressions, skills and knowledge.

To better safeguard ICH, the Chinese government and UNESCO signed an agreemen

gible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (CRIHAP) – to give countries in the re

gion the capacity-building service under the framework of the 2003 Convention.

Golden love: Wuhan seniors marry after age 80other Wu

A saying goes that love knows no age. One example is what happened between the 96-year-old g

randfather Han and the 85-year-old grandmother Wu in Wuhan, Central China’s Hubei province.

Their romance can be traced back to Spring Festival in 2017, when they met at their ch

ildren’s gathering for the first time, according to Changjiang Daily. They had been living alone since their spouses die

d. Their children, who happened to be friends, had worried about their parents’ loneliness and decided to fix them up.

Han thought Wu was nice after the meeting and decided to pursue a rel

ationship with his children’s support. He sent Wu a fan during the hot days and roses

on her birthday, and also talked with her over the phone from time to time. Wu gave him a pair of sneakers after

noticing that he wore leather shoes all the time, and Han would wear them whenever he went to meet her.
