theme songs

for the theme songs. After the concert, Yung suffered from sore throat due to a strain in her vocal cord. Several days after, she had to work without chatting with other people in an attempt to help her vocal cord relax. Despite her heavy workload she was able to spend several days receiving acupuncture treatment in Nanjing to have her voice restored. In addition, under the recommendation of one of her producers, Yung started to take singing lessons with Christine Samson, who is a well-renowned voice coach to many Cantopop singers. Communications have also help boost Ma'anshan economy and industry to well above the national average: the deep water river port of Ma'anshan, with custom offices ensures fast and inexpensive transportation to other cities both in the East coast, and the inner cities along the Yangtze River. Nanjing Lukou International Airport is 40 km from Ma'anshan, with direct flights to every corner of China and also daily flights to Europe. By road, Ma'anshan is connected with highways to Nanjing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Hefei and Wuhu (Wuhu City). On 23 September 2005, BNP Paribas was set to take a 20 percent stake in China's Nanjing City Commercial Bank (Banking in the People's Republic of China), a Chinese official and state press reports said. "BNP is going to sign a deal with us to buy a stake next month," an official from Nanjing City Commercial told AFP. The Shanghai-based ''Oriental Morning Post'' said BNP would pay up to US$100 million, although the bank official said the figure was incorrect. He declined to give further details. The French newspaper ''La Tribune'' reported in August 2005 that BNP Paribas had talked to four Chinese commercial banks—Ningbo, Wuxi, Nanjing and Suzhou—and was prepared to invest US$50–100 million. "We've talked to different financial institutions, but only BNP showed its good faith. It was not easy for us to reach an agreement," the Nanjing City Commercial Bank official said. BNP Paribas refused to comment. The International Financial Corporation, the investment arm of the World Bank, already owns 15 percent of Nanjing City Commercial Bank, which has regulatory approval to list on the country's domestic stock markets. Development After President (President of the Republic of China) Chiang Kai-shek died on 5 April 1975, the Executive branch (Executive Yuan) of the government established a Funeral Committee to build a memorial. The design, by architect Yang Cho-cheng, was chosen in a competition. Yang's design incorporated many elements of traditional Chinese architecture recalling the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum in Nanjing, China. (The Kuomintang (KMT) revered Dr. Sun (Sun Yat-sen) as founder of the party and government (Republic of China) Chiang had led.) Groundbreaking for the memorial took place on 31 October 1976, the 90th anniversary of Chiang's birth. The hall officially opened on 5 April 1980, the fifth anniversary of the leader's death. At nearly the same time, similar incidents happened on ''Crescent'' (HMCS Crescent (R16)) at Nanjing, China, and on the carrier ''Magnificent'' (HMCS Magnificent (CVL 21)) in the Caribbean, both of whose captains acted similarly to that of the ''Athabaskan''. Dr Richard Gimblett, Research Fellow with Dalhousie University's Centre for Foreign Policy Studies, "Dissension in the Ranks, 'Mutinies' in the Royal Canadian Navy" '''Shapingba District''' had become a part of Chongqing, it belonged to '''Baxian'''(Now Banan District (China) Banan District ). In the early 1930s, Shapingba District belonged to Baxian First District, the government located at the Ciqikou (Longyin Town), the famous ancient town. During the period of the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Chiang Kai-shek’s government had moved to Chongqing, a great number of schools, factories and medical institutions settled in Shapingba. From then on Shapingba turned a place full of talent. On February 6, 1938, the Chongqing University, the Sichuan College of Education, the Chongqing Nankai Middle School, the Chongqing Electrical Steel Works and several institutions which settled at Shapingba from Beijing, Shanghai or Nanjing such as the National Central University, the China Radio International, and the Academia Sinica, also the business and the financial together set the '''Chongqing Shaci Cultural District'''. During the Long March, Ye assisted Liu Bocheng in directing the crossing of the Yangtze River at Anshunchang and Luding Bridge, and became director of the offices that liaised with the KMT after 1936, first in Xi'an, then in Nanjing and finally in Chongqing. He worked together with Zhou Enlai in this capacity. WikiPedia:Nanjing commons:南京


critical time

critical time in the 1940s, the sisters made a valiant effort in financing and assisting in all national activities. Languages in more intense contact with Chinese, Sinospheric languages like Vietnamese, Zhuang, Tibetan, Korean, and Japanese, may have borrowed their words for tea at an earlier time and from a different variety of Chinese, so-called Sino-Xenic pronunciations. Korean and Japanese, for example, retain early pronunciations of '''''ta''''' and '''''da'''''. ''Ta'' comes from the Tang Dynasty court at Chang'an: that is, from Middle Chinese. Japanese ''da'' comes from the earlier Southern Dynasties court at Nanjing, a place where the consonant was still voiced (voiced consonant), as it is today in neighboring Shanghainese ''zo''. Vietnamese and Zhuang have southern ''cha''-type pronunciations. The government in Taipei officially asserts to be the sole legitimate government of all of China, which it defined as including Taiwan, mainland China, and outer Mongolia. In keeping with that claim, when the Kuomintang (KMT) fled to Taipei in 1949, they re-established the full array of central political bodies, which had existed in mainland China in the de jure capital of Nanjing (Nanking). While much of this structure remains in place, the President Lee Teng-hui in 1991 unofficially abandoned the government's claim of sovereignty over mainland China, stating that they do not "dispute the fact that the Communists (Communist Party of China) control mainland China." However, the National Assembly (National Assembly of the Republic of China) has not officially changed the national borders, as doing so may be seen as a prelude to formal Taiwan independence (the People's Republic of China has threatened to start a war if the government of Taiwan formalizes independence). It should be noted that neither the National Assembly nor the Supreme Court has actually defined what the term "existing national boundaries," as stated in the constitution, actually means. The latter refused to do so claiming that it is a "major political issue". WikiPedia:Nanjing commons:南京

book red

countries continued to deteriorate. Edgar Snow's 1937 book ''Red Star Over China'' reported that Mao Zedong's Chinese Communist Party (Communist movement) was effective in carrying out reforms and fighting the Japanese.

The Mandarin Chinese version of the film is widely distributed in China by the government linked China Christian Council's Amity Foundation
