Crawfish love drives ch上海419论坛ghnjiang Crayfish

Graduates trained in cooking the crustaceans earn double the average

Almost China’s national snack, people’s strong love for crawfish h上海419论坛女神会所

as meant graduates who specialize in the dish can earn twice as much as others with college degrees.

上海419论坛Thirty-five graduates who studied how to cook crawfish-also called crayfish-for two years, ob

tained vocational degrees from Qianjiang Crayfish School in Hubei province recently.上海419论坛

Twenty-nine of them have already secured jobs with average monthly salaries of more than 1

上海419论坛0,000 yuan ($1,457) due to the large demand for crawfish chefs, said Wang Zhongqiu, a teacher at the vocational college. He ad

ded that the other six graduates decided to open their own crawfish restaurant.

According to a report by Mycos, an educational research compa上海419论坛女神会所

ny, the average monthly salary for college graduates in China was 4,624 yuan in 2018.

上海419论坛It is quite common for crawfish chefs with more than three years’ experience to earn 30,000-50,000 yuan a month and the scho

ol plans to enroll another 200 students in crawfish-related majors this year, Wang said.

The school first introduced three majors related to the cooking, marketing and management of crawfish in 2017 and be上海419论坛女神会所

came the first and only college nurturing talent for the crawfish industry, he said.

上海419论坛”Apart from the three majors, it plans to open a new major in crawfish breeding. From raising baby crawfish, transporting the

m to the restaurant and finally bring the dishes to the table, we want to cultivate talent in all crawfish-related areas.”

Despite the good pay, the work is onerous. Chefs have to work o上海419论坛女神会所

vertime and some have to cook hundreds of kilograms of crawfish each day, Wang said.

上海419论坛女神会所The peak season for crawfish is from March to November, so they will earn much less during the slow season, he added.

Huang Yu, 21, is a graduate from the crawfish school. He has ope

ned a crawfish restaurant with his family in Yichang, Hubei province, his hometown.

to promote the political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard regional peace and stability, Xi said.上海419品茶微信

On behalf of the Party, government and people of China, Xi expressed gratitude for the warm rec

上海419eption and thoughtful arrangements from the DPRK. The friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere thr

oughout the visit has reflected the deep friendship between the two parties and two countries, Xi said.

Hailing the visit as a great success, Xi said that it has strengthened上海419品茶微信

the traditional friendship between China and the DPRK, set the direction for the deve

上海419lopment of bilateral ties in the new period and demonstrated the two countries’ firm determination to promote th

e political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard peace and stability of the region.

The visit took place in this important year, which marks the 70th anni

versary of diplomatic relations. It is also the fifth meeting between the two leaders in the pa上海419品茶微信

st 15 months, Xi said, adding that both are vivid demonstrations of the vitality of China-DPRK traditional friendship.

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419

ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419

nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信

increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which

上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r

estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信

ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec

上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a

nd on the other hand, she wanted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

ankoubei’s Wuhan m 上海乌托邦s how inland regions

Known as the Chicago of China and located alongside the Yangtze River, Wuhan, capital

of Central China’s Hubei province, has been a business hub throughout the nation’s modern history. 上海乌托邦女神会所

In recent years, the city’s Hankoubei area has represented the “Wuhan model”, showing th

 上海乌托邦e world how China’s inland regions have found innovative ways to develop their economies.

Since the start of the Age of Exploration in the early 15th century, global

trade has been focused on oceans, and the coastal regions in eastern China have emerged rap 上海乌托邦女神会所

idly over the past century. However, the vast inland regions of China were left behind because of their geographic di

 上海乌托邦sadvantages, and lack of transportation and communications channels and platforms.

This situation has been changing in recent years, as the nation is shifting its attention t

o its inland regions, to open them up and integrate them into the world economy. 上海乌托邦女神会所

With the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s international trade is entering an “inland age”.

Hankoubei’s Wuhan model shows how inland regions can open up 上海乌托邦

The local government of Wuhan is making efforts to build the Hankoubei area into the nation’s biggest domestic trade center.

 上海乌托邦女神会所The area is located between the largest railway station in Asia, the largest airport in Central China and the largest deep-water port in Central China.

In September 2016, the Hankoubei International Commodity Trade Center was listed as a national pilot market for fore

ign trade by on-the-scene purchasing, the only such market in Central and western China. 上海乌托邦女神会所

During the first Wuhan International Commodity Fair of Friendship City, taking place from Nov 14

-16, more than 100 overseas mayors, officials and entrepreneurs visited Hankoubei, where hun 上海乌托邦

dreds of kinds of goods from more than 20 countries and regions around the world were exhibited. More than 100 i

nternational buyers were attracted to the event, and about 40 agreements were reached.

 上海乌托邦女神会所Since its opening-up in 2009, the area has aimed to become a commodity distribution center

for not only Chinese inland regions but the outside world. The Hankoubei wholesale market has gener

ated an annual trade volume of more than 150 billion yuan ($22.9 billion) over the last three years.
