  • Тайна ледяной пещеры (Mystery of acient ice cave)

    The formation of an ancient ice cave in north China's Shanxi Province remains a mystery even for scholars. Some of them try to offer new explanations. The ice cave is located in Luyashan Mountain in Ningwu County, Shanxi Province. Its mystery lies in that those icicles were formed in seemingly "impossible geographic conditions". Most ice caves on earth are located in extremely cold and high-latitude regions, such as Siberia and Antarctica. However, the ice cave is located at 38.5 degrees north and only 2,300 meters above sea level. It is the largest ice cave discovered in China. In Ningwu County, the maximum temperature in summer reaches 38 degrees Celsius. But the temperature in the cave usually keeps below zero degrees Celsius all year round.

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) held a high-profile celebration for the 80 year anniversary of Xinhua News. CCP Central Politburo member Li Changchun requested that Xinhua better server the party, improve its grasp of public opinion, and become an international mainstream media. External media and commentators pointed out, as the mouthpiece of the CCP, Xinhua contradicts the nature of a news media. While the CCP tries it's best to promote it externally, there is no future for Xinhua. On Nov. 7, the CCP official media Xinhua News held it's 80th anniversary celebration event at the Great Hall of the People. CCP central Politburo member and the CCP Propaganda Chief Li Changchun said during the meeting that Xinhua is the trusted propaganda agency of the CCP. He requested that Xinhua maintain it's correct political direction, improve its ability to guide public opinion, increase its international broadcast capability, and become a world class media. Regarding this, former Ocean News reporter Zan Aizong said thatLi Changchun basically requested that Xinhua continue to be a good "mouthpiece for the party." Zan Aizong, "Its (Xinhua's) reports are following the views of the higher up. It reports whatever the higher ups want, the exact depth of the report is given, so they can only report within the given bounds, but can't report anything outside the boundaries." AFP reported that the regime requested that Xinhua better serve the party, to expand the international influence of the CCP, increase its "soft strength." The AFP report also mentioned that, Xinhua is currently expanding its international branches, to increase from the current 162 to about 200 by the year 2020. Voice of America pointed out that Xinhua is trying to expand internationally, but unless it returns to the nature of a news media, it will not have a future. Former Professor at Beijing University, Jiao Guobiao, famous for his article "Crusade against the Central Propaganda Bureau," told an NTD reporter that as the mouthpiece media of the CCP, it's obvious that Xinhua will not be accepted in the international community. Jiao Guobiao, "As a news media, unless the media returns to the fundamental values of a news media, it will not grow and won't last long. Not seeking truthfulness and objectivity, not following press freedom and universal values, then what is seeks is poles apart from a real media." As early as 2009, mainland media reported that the CCP invested 45 billion yuan to create a CNN style international 24 hours English television channel like the "Al Jazeera" channel in the Middle East. Regarding this plan, some infuriated netizens wrote, "Don't embarrass the Chinese people! Even Chinese don't watch Chinese news, trying to mess with foreigners! Save some money for the farmers, unemployed, and poor college students!" The CCP was firmly determined to push this "Big External Promotion Plan" to establish a reputation for the party. In May of this year, CCP media, CCTV, officially started this international media broadcast system. The Xinhua North American branch at Times Square in New York also went into operation. Xinhua also established a 24 hour English TV channel. Regarding this expansion, Zan Aizong believes that although the CCP invested so much money, due to this mouthpiece media being are fake and against universal values, increased broadcasting will only destroy its image. CCP's method will be counter-productive. Zan Aizong, "Looking at Reuters, Associated Press, Kyodo News, how do their reporters report, then how Xinhua reports. A comparison shows that how Xinhua reports external events and internal events, Xinhua is a propanganda tool. The more money invested, the less influence it will have." Zan Aizong stressed, Xinhua is surviving off money from the CCP, it has no real market power. If the CCP collapsed, under a real market environment, Xinhua can't survive a single day.

New Evidence In Bo Xilai's Case After the indictment of Bo Xilai, former Communist Party Secretary of Chongqing the case got attention again. On August 1, according to Radio France Internationale, the hearing of Bo's case will begin in Jinan, Shandong. Bo's relatives can attend the court hearing, but Bo is currently detained at Beijing Qincheng Prison. Reports revealed that on charges of bribery, a new item a villa in Nice, France, was added, It is unclear whose name this villa has been registered under, Gu Kailai or Bo Guagua.

The report quoted reliable sources, saying Bo Xilai was detained and interrogated by the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Members of the investigation group were from various departments and many provinces. However, the investigation task force was twice temporarily disbanded for unknown reasons. Bo Xilai case is the CCP's biggest political scandal in recent decades. Bo's crimes also have continued to show up. Besides the original charges, there is also live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners and corpse trafficking.

So there is no trust left between the two sides, and the mainland will no longer have any hope in Taiwan. If the bomb explodes on such a situation, the impact of the explosion will be much stronger than the past when the mainland still had a bit of expectation and confidence in Taiwan." 6. Chinese national red flag 7. Soldier guarding the gate of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office STORYLINE: While the Chinese communist government remains silent on Taiwan's new referendum law, analysts are warning that Taiwan's new referendum law could anger Beijing. Zhu Xianlong, professor of the Institute of Taiwan Study in Beijing United University, likened the situation to a "giant bomb" which remains a constant threat to cross-strait relations. Chinese State media quoted mainland analysts as saying that the measure passed on Thursday "created a legal basis for Taiwan independence", a step that Beijing has said it would oppose by force. Despite such comments, which clearly had official approval, the government made no comment and its Xinhua News Agency carried no reports on the referendum measure. A spokesman for China's Taiwan Affairs Office said on Wednesday that Beijing would "react strongly" to any law allowing unrestricted referenda, which it fears could lead to vote on independence. The vote by Taiwan to let the island's president call a referendum on independence if China attacks came despite weeks of increasingly menacing warnings by Beijing. Taiwan and the mainland have been ruled separately since 1949, but Beijing claims the island as its territory and has threatened to attack if it declares formal independence.

The formation of an ancient ice cave in north China's Shanxi Province remains a mystery even for scholars. Some of them try to offer new explanations. The ice cave is located in Luyashan Mountain in Ningwu County, Shanxi Province. Its mystery lies in that those icicles were formed in seemingly "impossible geographic conditions". Most ice caves on earth are located in extremely cold and high-latitude regions, such as Siberia and Antarctica. However, the ice cave is located at 38.5 degrees north and only 2,300 meters above sea level. It is the largest ice cave discovered in China. In Ningwu County, the maximum temperature in summer reaches 38 degrees Celsius. But the temperature in the cave usually keeps below zero degrees Celsius all year round. Some scholars believe that the ice in the cave is remains of the ice in Quaternary period of ice age, dating back three-four million years. Others argue that there may be a natural ice-making system under the cave. After long-term field survey and research, Xu Ping, scholar of science and engineering department of Taiyuan University of Technology, says the formation of ice cave derives from its distinct geographical structure. SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) XU PING, TAIYUAN UNIV OF TECHNOLOGY: "The structure of the ice cave is just like a beer bottle. The upper part is narrower and the lower part is wider. It is hard for the ice to melt because the temperature is lower inside than outside. And there is a heat preservation system. Meanwhile, the exit of the cave is on the surface of the ground. Thermodynamics can be applied here. The air around the exit of the cave goes up after being heated by sunshine, but it's still lower than the air outside. The relatively warm air around the exit prevents the air from the lower part going out. It is just like a soft cotton plug. Thus, the amount of hot air going into the cave is much less." Xu Ping believes that the failure of hot and cold air convection contributes to the everlasting ice. Moreover, outside the cave is dense woods; the duration of sunshine on the cave is relatively short. All of these result in the formation of natural heat preservation system, which prevents the temperature inside cave going up. Yin Huaiyu, ex-chief of Tourism Bureau in Ningwu County, found that there is a period each year for fresh ice to take shape. The new ice takes place of some melted ice. SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) YIN HUAIYU, TOURISM BUREAU OF NINGWU COUNTY: "Each March, snow on the mountain starts to melt and flows into the cave. At that time, temperature is higher outside the cave than inside. So water will turn to ice. The period of ice renewal lasts till April and May." Though this explanation sounds reasonable, a new question arises. Ningwu County is abundant in coal. There are many abandoned coal mines, the geological conditions of which are similar to those of the ice cave. These mines lie far deeper than the ice cave. But why doesn't the water in these mines freeze? No convincing answer has come out. However, just a few hundred meters away from the ice cave, there is a "volcano," named by local people. In fact, it is not a real volcano; but the heat comes from spontaneous combustion of coal. Experts believe that as rock is a poor conductor of heat, the combustion heat will not influence the temperature inside the ice cave. This coexistence of "ice and heat" in the same mountain add more mystery to the formation of the ice cave, which deserves people's exploration. Reported by Xinhua news agency.

Hong Lei also commented on Norway's expulsion of a Chinese post-doctoral student who was forced to leave the country in late January. Norwegian police ordered the unnamed Chinese scholar, who had been working for two years on a wind project at the University of Agder, to leave the country before January 23rd, China's state news agency said on Tuesday. Xinhua cited Norway's broadcasting company NRK as saying that the police made the move out of fear that the student's expertise could be used "for military purposes in other countries." Hong Lei said China thought the allegations "groundless" and had lodged representations with Norway. "It infringes the fundamental rights and interests of the Chinese scholars involved and undermines Norway's academic image as well," he said. Hong Lei also responded to questions regarding the killing of a captured Jordanian pilot who was purportedly burned to death in a cage by the Islamic State group, according to a video released on Tuesday.

But some are concerned the regime's definition of terrorism is too wide, and could be used against legitimate opposition to the Communist Party's rule. The Chinese regime has, for the first time, defined terrorism this week. It appeared in a bill aimed at bolstering anti-terrorism efforts. But critics say the term "terrorist activity" has been defined too broadly, and may be used against dissidents. The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, or the regime's legislature, examined the draft anti-terrorism bill during its bi-monthly meeting this week. Authorities say the measures will ensure national security and social stability. State-run Xinhua News Agency reported these acts include those "Intended to induce public fear or to coerce state organs or international organizations by means of violence, sabotage, threats or other tactics...The acts would cause or intend to cause severe harm to society by resulting in casualties, major economic loss...or disturbing social order." By including behavior other than violence, and results like "disturbing social order," critics say the Chinese regime has given terrorist acts a much broader scope than international conventions. [Han Yicun, Beijing Lawyer]: "We do not agree with the definition. First it's broadened the reach. Terrorist acts and terrorist groups are those who have used violence to bring fear to the society and endangered the interests of the public. It doesn't include acts against the government or state organs -- the public has the right to oppose their government and those in power." Constitutional scholar Chen Yongmiao believes the regime is looking to secure its own power through this proposed bill. [Chen Yongmiao, Constitutional Scholar]: "Including the recently amended Criminal Law, or Personal ID law, it's quite clear the country is moving towards a police state. This anti-terror law will be expanded to be like previous anti-right movements. Dissidents and rights activists will become targets of anti-terror efforts. The regime's focus is to secure its power, securing the power for the Communist Party." Under the draft bill, the Chinese regime will compile and publish a list of terror organizations and terrorists. Those identified will see their funds and assets frozen. The NPC will vote on the anti-terror draft this Saturday, according to Xinhua.
