A woman gets it into her head that she can never be too th

Zhang Xin, associate professor at the School of Psychological and Cognitive Science at Peking Uni

versity in Beijing, believes “fat talk” may be a way of expressing that “we all share feelings of insecu

rity”.In China, “fat” has become a word that women will do almost anything to avoid being associated with. This is not surpris

ing, given that being slim as a beauty ideal has become the subject of countless newspaper stories, TV comm

ercials and movies, resulting in the almost universal correlation between a slim figure and beauty.

“Women are more likely than men to enjoy chatting with their

peers about weight concerns and body issues, and this ma

y release them from pressure over their weight and serve as a way to bond with their friends,” he said.

But “fat talk” is a double-edged sword. While it may seem a harmless way to ease dissatisfact

ion over body shape by gaining reassurance within a peer group, it can also serve to reinforce negative feelings.

The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter G

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.

Such a personal goal can be seen, to a certain extentas a

microcosm of the national aspirations of both of their countries to gain a place in the global space arena via the cooperation and assistance of China.

Chea and Moreno Pena are part of a training program hosted by the China Academy of Space Technology.

The idea is to train a small group of elite foreign students to become s

pace industry engineers capable of developing and manufacturing satellites on their o

wn, thus enabling their countries to build their respective space industries and explore space.

Eight people are taking part in the program, which began in March 2018-two Ve

nezuelans, two Pakistanis, one Cambodian, one Russian, one Belarusian and one Kazakh.

“I am the first-ever Cambodian studying spacecraft knowledge,” Chea told

China Daily recently at the Shenzhou Institute, which is run by the academy.

Smaller airports seeing new surge in busines

More domestic airlines are launching new flights connecting less-densely populated small

Last year, the airports of Quanzhou in Fujian province, Nantong, Changzhou and Xuzhou in Jiangsu province, Jieyang in G

uangdong province and Yichang in Hubei province saw their annual passenger throughput reach 2.5 million, a jum

Enough care has been taken by Haier to customiz

Enough care has been taken by Haier to customiz

 and localize its products to meet Indian customers’ needs and suit the local conditions.

One such attempt was the “Jahukna Mat” (Hindi for ‘no need to bend‘ or ‘do not bend’) campaign, which aim

ed at avoiding bending by users to put in or bring out commodities stored inside the fridg

e. This was introduced to the Indian market seven years ago, and the concept had an immediate acceptance.

“Traditionally, in the refrigerators, the veggies box was at the bottom

and homemakers had to bend down many times in a day to put in or pull out co

mmodities stored inside the box,” said Eric Braganza, president of Haier Appliances (India).

“After proper product research, we introduced the upside-down concept, and put the veggies box at the top to ensure that p

eople, especially women, avoid bending. This change has been well received by Indian consumers.”

Lion King’ director talks Chinese animation

I’d like to see more films made in China reaching out to the world,” said American dir

ector Rob Minkoff, jury president at the main competition of the 2019 Beijing International Film Festival.

Best known for the celebrated Disney classic The Lion King, Minkoff has also directed a num

ber of animated films including Stuart LittleThe Haunted Mansion and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

In a press conference held last Thursday, Minkoff said Beijing is the heart

of the Chinese film industry. The BIFF attracts film productions from around the world, boo

sting development of filmmaking. With a global jury panel, the festival has become an international affair.

In light of the remarkable progress made by online subscription services like Netflix

and Amazon, Minkoff thinks these platforms offer a promising alternative to big-budget Hollywood blockbusters.

Having closely worked with Netflix on an original animated series based on Anna Dewdney’s picture book franchise Llama Lla

ma, he thinks its business model guarantees more liberty for the creator, thereby leading to more eclectic content.
