A $50 million rescue and rebuild mission is now underway to

repair roads, bridges, schools, communication lines and provide healthcare to

those affected. The country is in poor shape to withstand the financial impact of a disaster: Zimbabwe is cur

rently in the grip of a deep economic crisis.
The Zimbabwe Information Ministry shared pictures of some pupils who had been res

cued from a boarding school in Chimanimani District, one of the worst-affected areas in the east of the country. Br

idges were swept away, and power and communication lines in the area have been cut off.

Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwillin

  g to “negotiate with the Obama administration” about trade. In fact, the prev

ious administration sought to conclude a Transatlantic Trade and Investm

ent Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the line. Trump’s own talks on t

rade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump vs. his global counterparts

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a Pre

sident who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Trump, who was forced into

a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

Trump, who has faced backlash for saying he took Kim’s

  word that the North Korean leader was unaware of former prisoner Otto Warmbier’s c

apture, said Saturday that he was torn between his obligation to negotiate and his support for the Warmbiers.

  ”I’m in such a horrible position,” Trump said. “Because in one way I have to negotiate. In

the other way, I love Mr. and Mrs. Warmbier. And I love Otto. And it’s a very, very delicate balance.”

  Democrats and socialism

  Trump also accused congressional Democrats of accepting socialism and trying to “replac

e individual rights with total government domination” during the speech.

  ”Just this week more than 100 Democrats in Congress signed up for a socialist takeover of Am

erican health care,” he said, apparently referencing the Medicare For All bill currently supported by many House Democrats.

  Trump said that the plan “would lead to colossal tax increases” and “take away private covera

ge from over 180 million Americans,” as opposed to the private plans and new cooperative plan backed by hi

s administration “where you get better insurance than Obamacare for a fraction of the cost.”

In Pyongyang, Biegun and Kim Hyok Chol, DPRK’s special representative for US affairs, discussed “advancing Trump and Kim’s

Singapore summit commitments of complete denuclearization, transforming US-(DPRK)

relations, and building a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula,” the US State Department said in a statement.

Trump and Kim met for their first summit in Singapore last June, during which Kim pledged to work toward the “co

mplete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, without providing a clear timetable or roadmap.

US-led diplomacy aimed at getting the DPRK to abandon its nuclear program in return for outside concessions has since made little headway.

The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to

In a few weeks, the Spring Festival is coming, and we all look forward to it. During this period, we can rarely have a rest and get together with our families for a while. We can

also see relatives and friends we haven’t seen in a year. We all cherish this time. During this period, the most important program that everyone

cares about is the Spring Festival Gala. During the Spring Festival, the family sits together to watch the program and enjoy the rare time of reunion.

Even many families regard it as a ritual, which is indispensable every year. It is for this reason that the Spring Festival Gala is the most po

pular program every year. Everyone is particularly concerned about which program can be on, which actor will appear, and what kind of performance you can see. In the atmosphere of people’s special ex

pectations, a message suddenly came out: “The Spring Festival Gala in 2019 is expected to resume true singing.” Everyone was surp

rised to see the news. No one thought it had been lip-synching on this program. Netizens said that we had been deceived for so many years.

In fact, in the past few years, such news has come out, in thi

s stage, many singers in the performance, there will be obvious mistakes, such as the microphone has not yet picked up the voice, or the microphone has turned back but there is still voice. There are even many singers who h

ave said this on the show. Like Da Zhangwei on a program, it means that he was lip-synching on this stage, because his song rhythm is faster, it is easy to make mistakes, in o

rder to avoid such a situation, the program group let him record ahead of time, in the performance of the lip-synching can be. On his scene, he can make mistakes, but it is not allowed on this stage.

Many people have expressed their understanding of this situation, because the stage is too important, these programs are for th

e national audience, so the program group does not want to let any mistakes in the program, especially in the singing category, it is impo

ssible to adjust after the mistakes occur. Therefore, before the program, the singer must record, or even record many times,

select the best one to broadcast on the stage. Let go. But this is not true, in fact, the idea of the program is good, but they do not understand

the audience, for the audience, we all want to hear a more real scene, even some mistakes can be understood.

Between 83 and 93, the stage was full of lip-synching, not only that, but also tapes, which would be replaced immediately if there were any mi

stakes in recording. In 1994, the crew began to try real singing. Since then, real singing and lip-synching have been mixed up. So after that, you can hear some mistakes, and even the singer has gone out of tune.

In fact, whether it is true singing or lip-synching, it is for the audience, lip-synching is to avoid

mistakes, so that the audience can see the most perfect performance, and real singing is for more real performance, but also for the respect

of the audience, we did not want to see mistakes on this stage before, because this stage is too important, the audience is too wide, if there are mistakes, sure. There will be dissatisfaction.

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance, showing a unique melancholy

temperament. Even playing the soft role of “Yuhua Tian” can surprise many girls.

Recently, when Chen Kun participated in an event, fans and passers-by all knew that Chen Kun would appear.

Everyone was surrounded by three layers of interior and three layers of periphery. When Chen Kun appeared under the

protection of staff and bodyguards, the crowd immediately burst into excitement. Everyone was calling Chen Kun’s name,

hoping that the idol could see his side. Chen Kun wore a black down suit that day. His long black hair was also pinched by a black hairpin. As he walked, he folded his hands together to thank the fans for their enthusiasm.

At first, Chen Kun followed the staff. When he was halfway there, a passer-by shouted, “Yang Kun, how handsome!” As a result, Chen Kun, who had already taken several steps, turned around and corrected the passers-by seriously: Chen Kun, not Yang Kun.

Chen Kun’s serious corrective expression not only made passers-by laugh, but also the assistant beside Chen Kun could not help laughing.

Chen Kun corrected the mistake and looked at the passer-by with a firm eye. Then he was pulled forward by the assistant.

The passer-by nodded and laughed. Estimate is also a slip of the tongue, although Yang Kun and Chen Kun

are only one word apart, are also stars, but the difference in appearance is several grades.

On the evening of the 27th, Chen Kunfawen responded suspiciously to the video with the wrong name and wrote,

“When the plane landed, they turned on their mobile phones. I just got up.

I was a little embarrassed to hear my voice in a video. The other party looked up and stayed there for a while.

Suddenly he laughed, and I laughed embarrassingly. The beauty of life lies in coincidence.”

I didn’t expect Chen Kun to be such a real person in private, but do fans like Chen Kun also have new skills to stop idols?

 

Life is full of surprise and happiness.

Knowing how to treat things

with the eyes of looking for

beauty can always find many happy things.

last chapter closed with the arrival of Li Yue who shouted

the last chapter closed with the arrival of Li Yue who

shouted out falsely that the army was that of the two

arch rebels Li Jue and Guo Si come to capture the imperial cavalcade. But Yang Feng recognized the voice of Li Yue and bade Xu Huang go out to fight him. Xu Huang went and in the first bout the traitor fell. The White Wave rebels scattered, and the travelers got safely through Zhiguan Hills. Here the Governor of Henei, Zhang Yang, supplied them plentifully with food and other necessaries and escorted the Emperor to Zhidao. For his timely help, the Emperor conferred upon Zhang Yang the rank of a Grand Commander. Yang Feng moved his army to the northeast of Luoyang and camped at Yewang.

  Capital Luoyang was presently entered. Within the walls all was destruction. The palaces and halls had been burned, the streets were overgrown with grass and brambles and obstructed by heaps of ruins. The palaces and courts were represented by broken roofs and toppling walls. A small “palace” however was soon built, and therein the officers of court presented their congratulations, standing in the open air among thorn hushes and brambles. The reign style was changed from Prosperous Stability to Rebuilt Tranquillity, the first year (AD 196)。

  the year was grievous with famine. The Luoyang people, even reduced in numbers as they were to a few hundreds, had not enough to eat and they prowled about stripping the bark off trees and grubbing up the roots of plants to satisfy their starving hunger. Officers of the government of all but the highest ranks went out into the country to gather fuel. Many people were crushed by the falling walls of burned houses. At no time during the decadence of Han did misery press harder than at this period.

  A poem written in pity for the sufferings of that time says:

Mortally wounded, the white serpent poured forth its life blood at Mangdang Hills;Blood-red pennons of war waved then in every quarter, Chieftain with chieftain strove and raided each other’s borders, Midst the turmoil and strife the Kingship even was threatened.

Wickedness stalks in a country when the King is a weakling,

Brigandage always is rife,

when a dynasty’s failing, Had one a heart of iron,

wholly devoid of feeling, Yet would one surely

grieve at the sight of such desolation.

Lady Qiong did not wish him to go and she said,

Lady Qiong did not wish him to go and she said,

“This Li Jue is very deep, and one cannot fathom his designs. You two are not of equal rank, and if he made away with you, what would become of your poor handmaid?”

Guo Si paid no attention, and his wife could not prevail on him to stay at home.

Late in the afternoon some presents arrived from Li Jue’s palace, and Lady Qiong secretly put poison into the delicacies before she set them before her lord.

  Guo Si was going to taste at once but she said, “It is unwise to consume things that come from outside. Let us try on a dog first.”

  they did and the dog died. This incident made Guo Si doubt the kindly intentions of his colleague.

  One day, at the close of business at court, Li Jue

invited Guo Si to his palace. After Guo Si arrived home in the evening, rather the worse for too much wine,

he was seized with a colic. His wife said she suspected poison and hastily administered an emetic, which relieved the pain.

  Guo Si began to feel angry, saying, “We did everything together and helped each other always. Now he wants to injure me. If I do not get in the first blow, I shall suffer some injury.”

  So Guo Si began to prepare his guards for any sudden emergency.

  This was told to Li Jue, and he in turn GREw angry, saying, “So Guo Si is doing so and so!”

then Li Jue got his guards under way and came to attack Guo Si.

Both houses had ten thousand,

and the quarrel became so serious that they fought a pitched battle under the city walls.

When that was over both sides turned to plunder the people.

But Chen Gong, the strategist, came in hastily, saying, “General,

they accepted.

  But Chen Gong, the strategist, came in hastily, saying, “General, you are going away; whither?”

  “I am going to camp my troops at Puyang, that vantage point.”

“You are making a mistake,” said Chen Gong. “the two you have chosen to defend this city are unequal to the task. For this expedition remember that about sixty miles due south, on the treacherous road to the Taishan Mountains, is a very advantageous position where you should place your best men in ambush. Cao Cao will hasten homeward by double marches when he hears what has happened. If you strike when half his troops have gone past this point, you may seize him.”

  Said Lu Bu, “I am going to occupy Puyang and see what develops. How can you guess my big plan?”

  So Lu Bu left Xue Lan in command at Yanzhou and went away.

  Now when Cao Cao approached the dangerous part of the road near the Taishan Mountains, Guo Jia warned him to take care as there was doubtless an ambush.

  But Cao Cao laughed, saying, “We know all Lu Bu’s dispositions. Xue Lan is keeping the city. Do you think Lu Bu has laid an ambush? I shall tell Cao Ren to besiege Yanzhou, and I shall go to Puyang.”

  In Puyang, when Chen Gong heard of the enemy’s approach, he spoke, saying, “The enemy will be fatigued with long marches, so attack quickly before they have time to recover.”

  Lu Bu replied, “I, a single horseman, am afraid of none. I come and go as I will. Think you I fear this Cao Cao? Let him settle his camp; I will take him after that.”

  Now Cao Cao neared Puyang, and he made a camp. the next day he led out his commanders, and they arrayed their armies in open country. Cao Cao took up his station on horseback between the two standards, watching while his opponents arrived and formed up in a circular area.

Lu Bu was in front, followed by eight of his generals, all strong men:

Zhang Liao of Mayi, backed by Hao Meng,

Cao Xing, and Cheng Lian; Zang Ba of Huaying,

backed by Wei Xu, Song Xian, and Hou Cheng.

they led an army of fifty thousand in total.

“Since meeting you outside the pass, fate has assigned

“Since meeting you outside the pass, fate has assigned us to different quarters of the world, and I have not been able to pay my respects to you. Touching the death of your noble father, it was owing to the vicious nature of Zhang Kai and due to no fault of Tao Qian. Now while the remnant of the Yellow Scarves is disturbing the

lands, and Dong Zhuo’s partisans have the upper hand in the capital, I wish that you, Illustrious Sir, would regard the critical position of the court rather than your personal grievances, and so divert

your forces from the attack on Xuzhou to the rescue of the state. Such would be for the happiness of that city and the whole empire.”

Cao Cao gave vent to a torrent of abuse: “Who is this Liu Bei that he dares write and exhort me? Beside, he means to be satirical.”

Cao Cao issued orders to put the bearer of the letter to death and to press on the siege.

  But Guo Jia remonstrated, saying, “Liu Bei has come from afar to help Tao Qian, and he is trying the effect of politeness before resorting to arms. I pray you, my lord, reply with fair words

that his heart may be lulled with a feeling of safety. Then attack with vigor and the city will fall.”

  Cao Cao found this advice good, so he spared the messenger, telling him to wait to carry back his reply. While this was going on, a horseman came with news of misfortune: “Lu Bu has invaded Yanzhou,

now holding Puyang. The three counties left——Juancheng, Fanxia, and Dongjun——are under severe attacks.”

  [e] Zhang Yang was among the eighteen lords who rallied against Dong Zhou at the Tiger Trap Pass.

When Li Jue and Guo Si, the two partisans of Dong Zhuo, succeeded in their attack on the capital, Lu Bu had fled to Yuan Shu. However, Yuan Shu looked

askance at him for his instability and refused to receive him. Then Lu Bu went to try Yuan Shao, who was a brother of Yuan Shu. Yuan Shao accepted

the warrior and made use of him in an attack upon Zhang Yan in Changshan.

But his success filled him with pride, and his arrogant demeanor so annoyed the other commanders that Yuan Shao was on the

point of putting him to death.

To escape this Lu Bu had gone away to Zhang Yang*,

Governor of Shangdang,

who accepted his services
