Party motto inspired by young soldier keeps educating members in new era
XI’AN-Serving the people wholeheartedly-this is
the motto of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the world’s largest ruling party. 上海夜网
In an education campaign themed “stay true to our founding mission”, which has been carried out nationwide since May, all CPC
members and officials are required to bear in mind the phrase and act accordingly. 上海夜网女神会所
The expression “serving the people” originated from a speech by late Chinese leader Ma
o Zedong in September 1944 in memory of a soldier, Zhang Side, renowned for
his lofty morality for serving the people wholeheartedly and sacrificing for the benefit of the people. 上海夜网
The speech has had a profound impact on the history of the CPC, and “serv
上海夜网女神会所ing the people wholeheartedly” became the fundamental purpose of the Party.
Seventy-five years on, Zhang’s stories have been eulogized by generations of Chinese, and his spirit has been passed on.
Role modelBorn in an impoverished peasant family in Sichuan province in 1915, Zhang joined the New Fourth Army in 上海夜网
1933 and the CPC four years later. Throughout the Long March, Zhang fought bravely in battles and was injured seve
ral times. He also worked very hard while in Yan’an, a revolutionary base of the CPC in the 1940s.
On Sept 5, 1944, Zhang was working in a kiln with several soldiers when suddenly, the kiln coll 上海夜网女神会所

上海夜网New China faced many twists and turns in the first 30 years in rebuilding its economy. Even durin
g the 40 years of reform and opening-up, it has successfully weathered many a powerful s
torm including four major external crises: the debt crisis in the early 1980s, Western sanctions from the late 1980s to上海夜网女神会所
the early 1990s, the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis.
Centralized leadership adds to China’s advantages
上海夜网Admittedly, the Chinese economy has been facing a new type of challenge since the second half of 2018 because of the tr
ade war launched against it by the US. Yet the new challenge cannot be compared with the past external crises. Ev
en in the 1990s, at the height of Western sanctions, China was able to reverse the trade deficit that had u上海夜网女神会所
ndermined its economy for nearly 100 years since the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-95).
上海夜网Now, China has to deal with the fifth major external challenge: the US-instigated trade war. Notwithstanding the s
aber-rattling of some US politicians and the US administration’s desperate attempt to prevent the rise of Chinese hi
gh-tech companies, which reminds one of the Cold War, do those trying to force China to concede ground by applying “
上海夜网maximum pressure” really understand how China has weathered powerful storms in the past decades?
Without economic resilience and expertise in the high-tech sector, China would not have been able to close the
wide gap with the US in national strength. Perhaps this is why the US has labeled China as a major competitor.上海夜网女神会所
The domestic political infighting in the US unseen in decades is likely t
o intensify and create a bigger problem for the White House. By contrast, the
strengthened centralized leadership of China is well-positioned to deal with any challenges with greater efficiency. In this上海夜网
regard, the US hawks, who have turned a blind eye to China’s resilience, should look at China’s history and see how it has
overcome challenges, and stop resorting to “maximum pressure” to fulfill their narrow political goals.上海夜网女神会所

Kampar was not the only one whom Cheng had studied and mimick
ed. Another player was the legendary Jan-Ove Waldner, whose multiple encounters with上海夜网品茶微信
top Chinese ping-pong players over a career spanning three decades made him a household name in China.
上海夜网Cheng met the then-15-year-old Waldner for the first time in China during an invitation m
atch. The last time the two played against each other was at the 1995 World Team Table Tennis Ch上海夜网品茶微信
ampionships in Atlanta, Georgia, when Cheng, representing the US, won by a narrow margin.
In between the two matches was Cheng’s 1985 visit to the US, to participate in the US Open representing China.
上海夜网Having witnessed the defeat of his teammate Jiang Jialiang, then ranked the
world’s No 1, at the hands of Wu Wenjia of Chinese Taipei. Cheng, mobilizing his varie
d techniques gained as a training partner, routed his opponent while dazzling the audience.上海夜网品茶微信
One of those in attendance was Larry Hodges, a wannabe-j
ournalist-turned ping-pong coach for junior players. “When I saw Cheng winning men’s sing
上海夜网les, doubles and teams at the 1985 US Open, I had no idea that our futures would be together,” he said.
In 1988, table tennis became an Olympic sport. That year, Cheng was invited by the US Table
Tennis Association to join a resident training program and coach some of the country’s top players and ju上海夜网品茶微信
niors at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs – his previous performance had clearly been marked down.
上海夜网”At the time I was the program’s manager and coach, and w
ould later become its director. Cheng and I shared one dorm and he discovered ea
rly on that I liked kung pao chicken,” said Hodges, referring to the spicy dish上海夜网品茶微信
that ranked among China’s most popular exports. “So he made it for us about once a week!”

Zhou worked as a civil servant in Shanghai after getting a bachelor’s degree in Chinese literature from Fudan Univ
ersity. While working this job, she had the chance to embark on her first overseas trip to Tasmania, Australia. 上海夜网女神会所
There, when faced with pristine scenes of n
ature, she finally understood the magnitude of the pollution problem at home. 上海夜网
“It was in Tasmania where I learned that leaves should not be cover

The trip sparked something within her, and she resigned from her job as soon as she returned, joining a
n environmental protection organization to protect bar-headed geese at the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. 上海夜网女神会所
Two years later, in 2013, Zhou followed her husband to the United States, where he was accepte
上海夜网d into Harvard Medical School. There, she continued to work at various nonprofit organizations.
Eager to learn more about how environmental protection organizations operate, Zhou applied for a master’s degree program at
Harvard Kennedy School in 2015. In her application letter, Zhou expressed that she was determined to re 上海夜网女神会所
turn to Shanghai after graduation to create an organization aimed at helping people live in an e
nvironmentally friendly way. She went on to study at the institution on a full scholarship.
上海夜网女神会所Despite friends advising her to begin her career in the United States after graduation, Zhou made good on her promise
and returned to Shanghai in 2016. However, she was sidetracked from her original plan and ended up doing bus

ic produce in a residential neighborhood in 2018 that she was reminded of her initial calling. 上海夜网女神会所
While chatting with the head of the neighborhood committee, she learned that in Ma
