The water is too deep, and this Volvo XC60, which is 40,000 lower than the market price, exposes the cheating tricks of used car dealers.

Hello, everyone, I’m Guangyao, the inspector of the car inspector. Although I look good, I’m an old driver who has repaired cars. Now I’m a used car inspector of the car inspector. It’s my duty to avoid everyone’s car purchase risks. Welcome to watch this interesting story about used car inspection.

Old drivers all know that the policy of restricting the relocation of used cars in the National Five-Year Plan has been liberalized, and the nationwide circulation has immediately formed a scale. For consumers, the convenience of buying cars in different places has been greatly improved! However, Guangyao reminds everyone that buying second-hand cars in different places is particularly easy to be pitted. Everyone should be cautious. Before looking at the car, hold the money bag tightly, and don’t give it out easily until you know the exact condition of the car, otherwise you may fall into the double torture of money and spirit! We have encountered too many such cases, so I will pick one out here to share with you, hoping to learn from it!

In other words, a good brother from Nanchang photographed a used car in Ningbo in a live broadcast room. In November 2018, 19 Volvo XC60 (parameter picture) four-wheel drive Zhiyuan version was licensed, and the market price was 200,000-210,000. As long as the live broadcast room was more than 180,000, the anchor said that the car had changed its front mouth, but it sold very cheaply. After the live broadcast room, there was no such price! My good brother thought, it’s not unacceptable to say anything before, so he paid a deposit of 10 thousand in advance and took the preferential places first! But eldest brother still has a little distrust of car dealers, so he entrusted Guangyao to do a comprehensive test!

Good brother himself was not present, and we kept online communication. When Guangyao heard him talk about the price, he had doubts. Can you get a discount of 30,000-40,000 yuan by changing the front set? I won’t believe Guangyao. It is estimated that the main structure of the car body should be damaged! Look at the real car! According to the address provided by the eldest brother, Guangyao came to the garage where the vehicle was located. Tell the car dealer what he came for, but the car dealer is also honest, saying that the front of the car hit and the airbag was blown up. See for yourself the rest! Guangyao took the car keys and started testing!

Car model: 2019 T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyuan Edition

Factory date: October, 2018

Apparent mileage: 75784KM

Official guidance: 421,900

Car dealer’s quotation: 185,800 yuan

Just look at the appearance, the color is still good! Since it is a set of front mouth, the front bumper must have been disassembled and replaced, and the inspection is indeed true. There are paint marks on the corners, and the details are rough, which is obviously not the original process!

The front cover is painted evenly on the whole surface, and then the inside is opened. At first glance, the fixing screws have no traces of turning off the paint, but don’t be confused by the surface phenomenon. If you look closely, you can find that the surface of the screws is painted, and the bottom circle has obvious displacement, which means that the screws must have been removed! Moreover, some holes on the inside of the cover are rough in workmanship and the color inside is wrong, indicating that the front cover has also been replaced!

Needless to say, the water tank frame, radiator, fan and headlights have not been replaced. Let’s focus on whether the structural parts have been moved!

The paint thickness of the left fender skeleton was measured, and the data came to 647μm, which is sheet metal shaping! The outer leaf iron sheet should also be reimbursed! Injury to the structural parts, this is not a simple front mouth set, it should be an accident car!

Look at the right fender skeleton again. Although the thickness of the paint on it is in the normal standard, the solder joints below are all redone through the gap observation. This is cutting and welding! It’s worse than the left!

Moreover, the thickness of the paint on the right shock absorber tower top is not quite right, which is much higher than that on the left, but the area is not large. It must have been painted, which should be related to the accident ahead!

Looking down at the right front longitudinal beam, although the deformation trace is not too obvious, it can still be seen with the naked eye! Seeing this situation, Guangyao probably knows what this XC60 is about! It’s not just a set of front mouths, it’s already a national standard major accident car! Take a small notebook and write it down first, and then see if there is any more damage under the chassis!

The engine was not damaged, and no traces of oil leakage were found. The intake manifold was just disassembled, probably by cleaning carbon deposits, and the problem was not serious!

The pawl screw is still in the original factory appearance, so it can be seen that the engine has not been hoisted and maintained. If the mileage is really more than 70,000, there will be basically nothing wrong with the engine and gearbox! It’s not time to break down!

After measuring the paint surface along the left, I quickly walked around and found that except for the original paint on the roof, none of the other places ran away, including the rear of the car! Partial sheet metal scraping putty, of course, this is also expected!

When entering the car, Volvo’s interior feels low-key and honest, less dazzling, but the materials and workmanship are more exquisite. In order to make the car have no odor, it is basically environmentally friendly materials, and the owner is practical!

First, look at the color of the interior, which depends on observing the main driver’s seat, door handle, steering wheel, window button, air conditioning button, accelerator brake pedal, gear handle, etc., which are often used at ordinary times. By comprehensive comparison, the overall wear and tear of the interior is not very serious, basically in line with the current mileage!

There is little difference between the mileage read by Obd computer and the meter, and the results obtained by running the average speed of conversion of time with the engine are basically the same, and the vehicle really has no meter adjustment!

The accident at the front of the car is not small. According to Volvo’s safety factor, the main driver’s airbag and seat belt will definitely trigger protection! Observe that the fixing screw of the seat belt has indeed been removed, but the manufacturing date conforms to the original assembly procedure. It is estimated that the locking mechanism inside has been repaired, and the original seat belt has not been changed! The airbag is better distinguished, the skin on the surface is obviously newer than the steering wheel, and the disassembly hole is also punctured!

The main driver’s seat has been removed, whether it was accidentally removed or for other reasons, there is no way to guarantee this! However, it is certain that there is no trace of sediment residue in the harness at the bottom of the seat! Combined with the steering column, threshold gap, under the carpet and other positions, Guangyao confirmed that there is no water soaking in the vehicle!

I thought the function buttons should be in good condition and effective, but I didn’t expect a light switch to fail! If this is repaired, it is estimated that the assembly will have to be replaced!

Finally, the detection of the chassis, which is also our most important project, has disappeared, leaving the engine and gearbox exposed! It is estimated that the fender was reimbursed by the front accident!

The fixing screw of the engine oil pan has been removed, and the color of the oil pan is obviously relatively new. It may be that the bottom is cracked and damaged, and it has been repaired and replaced, but as far as this problem is concerned, it is not serious!

There is nothing wrong with the gearbox oil pan, which is neither disassembled nor deformed! This 8AT gearbox is well matched with the 2.0T engine!

This is the point. Do you know where this is? This is the lower part of the top of the damping tower with high paint thickness. From below, it can be clearly seen that this piece is made up and has been cut and welded! This position is the same as the right front longitudinal beam, as long as there are deformation, cutting, welding, folding and other conditions, it can be directly designated as a major accident car!

The situation of the lower longitudinal beam is not much better, and the deformed position has not been corrected and maintained! It may be that the deformation is not large, so the repairman does not care!

There was another unexpected discovery under the chassis. The inner plate of the left rear fender was cut and welded. It seems that this XC60 has an accident in more than one place! Although the accident here is nothing compared with the previous one, it is also a big flaw! You must give feedback to customers! That’s why we should insist on detecting the chassis, because this position is not on the chassis, and we can’t see it at all!

There is no suspense in the conclusion of this XC60, a major accident car! I called my good brother to report the car condition. My good brother couldn’t believe it. Although I made preparations that the car condition didn’t meet expectations, it was too different! The front fender skeleton is cut, the rear fender inner panel is cut, the shock absorber seat is cut, and the longitudinal beam is deformed. This is not a sword stuck in the heart of the good brother, but four swords! Good brother, let Guangyao report the car inspection as soon as possible, so that he can return the car and refund the deposit!

But the deposit is not so easy to refund, and the car dealer has a hundred reasons to refuse you! Good brother tried to find the other party’s theory several times without a result, and went to the live broadcast room to complain and was blacked out! I thought I found a cheap one, but I didn’t expect it to be a protracted war! Big brother still has his own business to take care of, which makes him physically and mentally haggard! So, if you see a particularly cheap used car, you really need to keep your eyes open!

The fans nodded to show that they understood! Ok, that’s all for today’s testing sharing. I’m a used car testing technician from the car inspector. Like it, like it, and spray it if you don’t like it. I repair cars more, study less, and write poorly. Please bear with me. Car inspector, I would like to be your friend who knows cars best!

Sailis automobile’s leading extended range technology, thanks to AITO, the M9 battery life reaches 1402 kilometers.

  On December 26th, the new flagship model AITO Wenjie M9 of Celestial Automobile was officially released.

  Solve the three major pain points of users

  The continuous exploration and upgrading of extended range technology is one of the core development principles of Sailis Automobile’s insistence on innovation. After years of high capital investment and several rounds of upgrade iterations, Sailis has firmly established a leading position in the field of extended range technology of new energy vehicles. The super electric drive intelligent technology platform (DE-i), which has been developed since 2016, has realized a platform and multi-technical route solution, which is suitable for multi-scenarios and multi-modes such as pure electricity and extended range.

  After solving the anxiety of charging energy and mileage of users of new energy vehicles, Sailis has been walking nonstop. Aiming at the three main pain points of users of extended-range vehicles: power loss, soaring energy consumption and increased noise in extreme feed mode, it has been optimized and improved to create an extended-range technology with "intelligence, efficiency and no feeling" as the core.

  Under the control of the "intelligent brain" of the DE-i platform, the energy system can fundamentally stop running under extreme feeding conditions, thus avoiding the occurrence of power loss and ensuring the driving experience to the extreme. The highest power generation efficiency of generators on DE-i platform is over 95%, and the highest oil-electricity conversion rate is increased from 3.27 kWh/L in the previous generation to 3.44kWh/L, and the area above 3.0kWh/L accounts for more than 40%.

  Based on the fact that users value NVH performance and pursue non-inductive switching between different modes, the DE-i platform is based on assembly efficiency map and NVH map, and combines the actual operating conditions and usage scenarios of the vehicle to optimize the strategy, and develops the driving power generation strategy including start-stop strategy and different working conditions, and determines the best power generation control strategy based on the principle of NVH performance priority to achieve the optimal NVH effect.

2023 Chengdu International Auto Show: large-scale, high-standard, popular and effective.

The 2023 Chengdu International Auto Show is not only a hearty car buying feast, but also a diverse festival carnival, and it is also a dedication performance of "Chengdu has achieved its dreams and achieved its market". ……
Guests bring rain, and rainy days bring wealth.
August 25th, 2023. Western China International Expo City. The 26th Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition was grandly opened in the intermittent autumn rain.

After three years of epidemic and the growing voice of "consumption degradation", the automobile market urgently needs a "happy rain" to boost market confidence, promote automobile consumption and release industrial vitality.
As the largest auto show in the west, Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition has long been not only a platform for major manufacturers to display new cars and new technologies, but also a weather vane and compass for automobile consumption in the west.
Therefore, at this year’s Chengdu Auto Show, we not only saw the gathering of 129 world-renowned automobile brands including German, American, legal, Japanese, Korean, joint venture and independent, but also saw the influx of senior executives of major automobile brands. The importance of Chengdu Auto Show can be seen.

The figures are undoubtedly the best explanation: on the first day of the opening ceremony, Chengdu Auto Show held 66 new car conferences, and unveiled 68 first-time models, including 26 world-first models, 31 national first-time models and 11 regional first-time models; More than 3,400 media and 9,900 journalists were present.
"This is the Chengdu Auto Show with the largest scale, the highest specifications and the largest number of participating brands I have ever seen. The status and value of Chengdu Auto Show are becoming more and more prominent. " At the "2023 China Auto Pioneer Forum" on the opening day of the auto show, Liu Xiaoyong, president of Auto Watch magazine, one of the organizers of the forum, said with deep feelings.

The "2023 China Auto Pioneer Forum" with the theme of "Hot AI" has been widely participated and praised by people from all walks of life in government, manufacturers, industry and media. The forum conducted in-depth discussions on how the new technological revolution represented by AI will reshape the ecology of the automobile industry and how to empower automobile marketing, leaving a colorful color for the 26th Chengdu International Auto Show with a cross-disciplinary ideological confrontation and wisdom collision.
There are many new cars, media like clouds, pioneer forums and high-level gatherings ….. It cannot be said that this year’s Chengdu Auto Show is very "international". But you think this is all the highlights of this year’s auto show, and you are wrong.
In addition to the exhibition hall of nearly 200,000 square meters in the West International Expo City, the Chengdu Auto Show has already extended the "booth" to a broader space in the city.
This is a scene that can only be seen at Chengdu Auto Show: on the opening day, many classic cars such as Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin and Bentley took "Running through Rongcheng" as the theme, and from Sanhe Classic Car Museum to Xibo City via Tianfu Avenue, passers-by all stopped to watch and share their passion.

Not only that, this year’s auto show also brought an auto show aesthetic party in conjunction with Wangfujing Department Store, and built a small red book Cheyouhui chengdu railway station in conjunction with Xiaohongshu. The fashion aesthetics kept playing, and the car was modified to the end.
In addition, the online promotion of the auto show is also synchronized, creating a wonderful night-to-night live broadcast of the auto show, deeply combining with Sichuan observation and leading a large number of talented anchors to broadcast the grand event of the auto show in real time, and showing the charm of the auto show in all directions. There is also a car model billboard on the Tik Tok platform, which can call your favorite car model with one click, and fully ignite the public’s enthusiasm for watching and playing cars.
In fact, this is not the most exciting. It has always been a habit of Chengdu people to buy a car at the auto show, because cars are more polite and affordable. This year, in order to maximize the sales of participating brands, the organizing Committee of the auto show is even more "unprecedented ‘ Money ’ For example, the activity of "the highest cash prize of 49,999 yuan for car purchase" was launched, one per day. At the same time, there are also five cash gifts of 4999 yuan and many trendy digital gifts of hundreds to thousands of yuan every day.

There is a real boldness in the big hand. This means that the ten-day auto show, just a lottery, the auto show organizing Committee will send more than one million.
In the conspicuous position of this year’s investment promotion manual of Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition, a sentence is written: "Enjoy Rongcheng, promote industry, strengthen economy and control the future". The seemingly simple 12 words mean the mission of Chengdu Auto Show for many years.
Ms. Yang Huilan, general manager of Chengdu Convention and Exhibition Center, said: "This year, in addition to upgrading the auto show, we also shoulder the heavy responsibility of boosting market confidence and driving the recovery of industrial kinetic energy. How to attract more consumers to the scene and help exhibitors sell cars is the top priority of our work. "
This year’s Chengdu International Auto Show will not disappoint car buyers. In addition to the car purchase gift prepared by the organizing Committee of the auto show, the organizing Committee also specially joined forces with major automobile manufacturers to jointly bring the biggest discount for car buyers to buy cars at the reserve price. At the same time, in order to reassure consumers, the organizing Committee also selected nearly 100 popular models in conjunction with more than 20 mainstream brands to provide in-depth test drive services for car buyers at the auto show.

Not only that, in addition to striving for more and greater benefits for car buyers, this year’s Chengdu International Auto Show has also made great efforts to benefit the people and facilitate the people: the auto show site has not only added a number of consulting services, maternal and child lounges, large luggage storage, infirmary and other humanized services, but also equipped with free drinking points, mobile phone charging piles and other infrastructure; In the parking area and outdoor square outside the exhibition hall, there are "free bus shuttle bus" and "free battery car ferry" for seamless connection, which can be described as the service to consumers’ hearts.
Large scale, high specification, popular and good effect. This is undoubtedly the emerging advantage and charm of this year’s Chengdu Auto Show, which is both international and full of fireworks. The two complement each other, just like a window opened to the world. Through this window, the world will not only see a hearty car-buying feast and a multi-faceted festival carnival, but also a show of "Chengdu has achieved its dreams and achieved its market".
From now until September 3rd, the 26th Chengdu International Automobile Exhibition will continue to be staged in the West China International Expo City. If you want to feel how "enjoying Rongcheng intelligently and seeing the future" works, you may wish to check in. (Qin Tongzi)

"Digital Baby" 20th Anniversary Carnival ended, and fans recalled their childhood with tears.

1905 movie network news On October 24th, the high-profile works commemorating the 20th anniversary of digital baby held a 20th anniversary carnival to watch movies. More than 1,000 fans from 11 cities across the country went to this 20-year-old adventure together, and personally expressed that "I will always love digital baby" was never just a talk!

Since the official announcement, the 20th Anniversary Carnival has received strong support from fans, and everyone has actively participated in the collection of registration, just to watch this sentimental work in the cinema for the first time. This enthusiasm extended from online to offline. As soon as the fans arrived at the event site, it was hard to hide their excitement. They took photos with the carefully set humanoid signboard and classic line KT board to record this reunion after 20 years.

As the 20th anniversary work of Digital Baby, Digital Baby: The Last Evolution invited the team that created the first generation of Digital Baby to make it personally, just to spare no effort to bring everyone back to the summer of 1999.

Therefore, the scene of the 20th anniversary carnival activities also followed this, and a message board was set up for the fans who came to watch the movie. Every "children" who grew up with digital baby can speak freely here, arouse their deep feelings and love, and meet their childhood selves again.

After the screening of the film, the greeting ID of seiyuu Natsuki Hanae, who voiced Yagami Taichi in the film, and seiyuu Chika Sakamoto, who voiced Yagu beast, were immediately played on the big screen. Later, there was a surprise VCR recorded by the film’s director Taniguchi for China’s chosen children, telling the psychological process of making this 20th anniversary work. I hope everyone can feel their respect for the previous work in this film and enjoy this work.

What pushed the atmosphere to the climax was the chorus of "Butter-fly". When the classic prelude sounded, every fan present couldn’t help blushing. When all the children in the audience sang "May we always embrace infinite dreams and cross the ruthless world", this adventure journey that was reopened after 20 years finally came to a satisfactory end.

"Digital Baby: The Last Evolution" mainly tells the story that Yagami Taichi and Ishida Yamato, the first protagonists of the digital baby series, have grown into 22-year-old adults accompanied by their respective digital babies, but their quiet lives have been broken by frequent coma incidents of "called children" around the world. In order to keep the world from falling into crisis, the first generation of grown-up protagonists and digital baby have started the "last evolution", and this 20-year adventure will come to an end.

Previously, the introduction and booking of this work have received great attention, frequently occupying the high position of hot search. Once the pre-sale was opened last week, fans and friends who had been waiting for a long time bought movie tickets early, which was enough to see the strong appeal of the film. After the carnival, fans expressed their true feelings for the film.

The 20th anniversary work "Digital Baby: The Last Evolution" will be released nationwide on October 30th, and the pre-sale of the film is now open.

The biggest match-fixing case in snooker history! The secret means have caused many people to take risks, and it will take time for the "China Legion" to get out of the shadows.

According to the news, on June 7th, Beijing time, the World Snooker Tour (WST) issued a statement that the disciplinary committee of the independent World Professional Billie and Snooker Association (WPBSA) had ruled on 10 players accused of match-fixing, and imposed life-long bans on Liang Wenbo and Li Hsing, and long-term bans on other related players. Liang Wenbo and Li Hsing were banned for life, which also set a precedent in snooker.
It is reported that the situation of this case is that after the warning issued by IBIA in August 2022, the integrity department of WPBSA cooperated closely with Sportradar Company to conduct a detailed investigation, and finally accused 10 snooker players of seriously violating the WPBSA code of conduct. The 10 players were suspended before these violations were decided.
The case was heard in London before, and the players attended the hearing in person or by video, with the free WPBSA players’ associations as legal representatives or assistance.
On June 6, 2023, local time, the disciplinary court announced its investigation results of controversial allegations and its decision on sanctions.
Life-long ban sets a precedent
Take Liang Wenbo as an example, he was accused of manipulating many games; Contact multiple players to manipulate multiple games; Trying to obstruct the investigation; Not cooperating with WPBSA’s investigation Li Hsing, another player who was banned for life, was charged with the same thing, and one more thing was added: betting in snooker. According to Beijing Youth Daily, this time Liang Wenbo and Li Hsing were sentenced to life ban, which set a precedent.
Some media analysts believe that because snooker requires high accuracy, it is relatively difficult to judge whether it is a mistake or a fake ball, which also causes the phenomenon that fake balls are repeatedly banned in snooker competitions to some extent.

On December 1, 2018, Cao Yupeng, a 28-year-old China player, was banned by WPBSA for six years because he made profits for himself and his relatives and friends by playing fake ball. In 2022, he returned to the ranks of professional players early because of his good performance, and he also entered the ranking match several times. Yu Delu, 31, was banned for 10 years, and now he can only hang out in Chinese billiards.
The most severe punishment in the international arena is Stephen Lee, a talented player who was banned for 12 years in 2013 because of his long-term match-fixing and match-fixing, which is the most severe punishment made by the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association before punishing China players.
The secrecy of trading has caused many players to take risks.
Earlier, according to the analysis of Li Xiaolong, a senior snooker media person quoted by Yangguang. com, due to the nature of snooker, it is difficult to define the performance of the players in the game, so the content of the game on the field is difficult to be used as evidence to judge the match-fixing. More cases of match-fixing are caused by the monitoring of abnormal bets by gambling companies and other off-site evidence.
Jinling Evening News had previously written that a snooker master can throw a ball in the dark, so that you can’t grasp the evidence completely. Only through the drastic changes in betting can you see some clues, but not every investigation has results, so many players will take risks.
According to Observer. com, as one of the latest international sports organizations in the world, the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, which was not established until 1968, has been established. Since its establishment, a large number of snooker players have been investigated and even banned for allegedly accepting benefits for gambling groups, including many world-class athletes. Scottish "wizard" john higgins, the four-time world champion and the holder of 31 world snooker titles, was even praised by the then famous British gossip newspaper News of the World "fishing law enforcement" in 2010.
In this "fishing law enforcement", Higgins and his agent, former director of the World Federation of Taiwan, Pat Mooney, agreed to lose the match in several different games in exchange for a total reward of 300,000 euros. They further discussed with the fishermen how to cover up the scam, which games and opponents to choose, and how Higgins would get money.

After the incident, Mooney had to resign from his post in the World Taiwan Federation, while Higgins was suspended for six months and fined 75,000 pounds. In addition, Ai Bodun, Maguire and many other famous players have also been investigated for gambling.
Many affected players have high hopes.
The incident had a great impact on China snooker. Among the 10 people punished, there were experienced veterans like Liang Wenbo, and young players like Yan Bingtao and Zhao Xintong who had high hopes. After Ding Junhui, the latter two are the only China players who have won the "three major competitions (British Championship, World Championship and Masters)" in snooker.
Zhao Xintong is 25 years old. In 2021, he defeated Belgian player Luca Brecel in the final of the snooker British Championship, and won the first "three competitions" championship in his career.
Followed by Yan Bingtao, the "post-00" player broke out in 2021, defeating neil robertson, Stephen Maguire, Stuart Bingham and john higgins to win the snooker Masters. He is the second youngest athlete to win the Masters Championship, second only to Ronnie O’Sullivan, who won the championship in 1995 at the age of 19.

Even Luning and Li Hsing, who are not ranked high, have reached the final of the ranking tournament when they are in excellent condition. Veteran Liang Wenbo won the English Open in 2016.
Media: Living in the UK is fragmented and loosely managed.
For this match-fixing case, Observer.com once commented that this incident reminded all China snooker players that no matter how bad the atmosphere in the international arena is and how good the immediate interests are, the behavior that violates sports ethics is the red line and cannot be touched. Like all other sports, only a healthy, positive and fair environment can help snooker develop better in China.
According to the analysis of Beijing Youth Daily, most of the China snooker players in their perennial life in the UK were originally on their own, and the management was relatively loose. Most of the players themselves bear the expenses of studying abroad, playing and living, and there are not too many strict constraints. In this case, some bad habits are bred in the hands of the ball, and even behaviors that violate morality and the rules of snooker are difficult to be detected in time, and they can only rely on self-discipline. Coupled with the fact that the prize money of the world snooker tournament is low in recent years, the harsh survival forces the players to take risks, which leads to sad results. The heavy penalty for them also sounded the alarm for other players.
Young man Si Jiahui: A glimmer of "the darkest hour"
According to Zhongxin. com, the 2023 World Snooker Championships closed on the 2nd Beijing time, and the latest world ranking of snooker was also released.
China’s Zhao Xintong ranked 11th, the highest in the China Legion, and Yan Bingtao ranked 23rd. Unfortunately, however, both players were banned for one year, eight months and five years for this accusation of match-fixing. China’s players, Ding Junhui can be called "the only one left" among the famous players, still ranked 17th, and is expected to return to TOP16 (the top 16 in the world) in the new season. However, China teenager Si Jiahui, who reached the semi-final of this World Championships, rose 44 places in a row, from the 80th place before the competition to the 36th place.

In addition, the top 60 players from China are: Zhou Yuelong 27th, Fan Zhengyi 34th, Pang Junxu 35th, Cao Yupeng 42nd, Xiao Guodong 43rd, Lv Haotian 47th, Wu Yize 51st, Yuan Sijun 52nd, Tian Pengfei 55th and Zhang Anda 60th. It seems that it will take some time for these young players to rank among the top players in the world.

Every piece of tea is a treasure! "Little Tea Man" opens the experience tour of "tea culture" in Jiangnan tea industry!

Chao News Client Reporter Yang Yuan
As a special activity created by "Grateful 30 Years 2023 Famous Products Shopping Festival" with the theme of "Brand Quality Linping Intelligent Creation", the little reporter Linping Factory Study Tour was deeply loved by children and parents once it was launched. On the afternoon of January 6th, following the successful conclusion of the first stop of the boss’s electric appliance research tour, 15 reporters from Niu 1 o’clock, led by their teachers and parents, started the "Little Tea Man" experience tour in Yijiangnan Tea Industry, Linping District, Hangzhou.
Under the introduction of the tea culture instructor of Yi Jiangnan Tea Industry, the children learned about the historical origin, development and evolution of tea varieties, production technology, tasting methods and other aspects, and participated in the "tea knowledge contest" question and answer. "Where did the earliest tea trees originate?" "Yunnan!" "In addition to the most famous West Lake Longjing, do we have a representative of Zen tea in Hangzhou?" "Jingshan tea!" "What’s the name of Cha Sheng?" "Lu Yu!" Every tea culture-related question thrown by the tutor, the children firmly caught it and answered it correctly.
In the tasting session, the children become "little tea tasters", and their task is to identify substitute tea and original leaf tea. The tutor told them that substitute tea generally consists of one or more items in the two categories of "medicine and food homology" and "health care products" in the prescribed food classification. Tea products made from the roots, stems, leaves or fruits of these plants are common, such as persimmon leaf tea, rose, honeysuckle, barley tea, boat-fruited Sterculia and Siraitia grosvenorii.
Every piece of tea has become a treasure in the eyes of "little tea tasters"! They carefully observed the shape and color of tea, gently touched it with their fingers, and felt the texture and texture of tea. Children full of curiosity and thirst for knowledge did not forget to raise their hands and ask their tutors for advice. They absorbed in the aroma of tea, closed their eyes and took a deep breath, and their concentration made the tutor nod again and again. The parents present also joined the activities one after another, and together with the children, they carefully identified the shape of tea, felt the aroma of tea soup, tasted the taste of tea soup, and observed the freshness of the bottom of leaves.
Known as the "king of flavonoids", strawberry tea does not contain theophylline and caffeine, and will not get excited after drinking, which can improve and improve the quality of sleep, and is suitable for all ages. After the on-site tea artist taught the brewing skills and precautions in detail, the "little tea tasters" appeared! They personally brewed and tasted the unique flavor of strawberry tea.
Bi Jianwen, the second grade of Maiyuqiao Primary School, was absorbed in observing the tea soup. The eight-year-old girl’s favorite drink is tea! "The father’s hometown is in Jingde County, Anhui Province. There is a custom of making tea eggs in the New Year. Children love tea eggs and love the unique fragrance of tea in eggs, so they have the complex of drinking tea." Bi Jianwen’s mother drove for 40 minutes to take her children to participate in the activities, just because "tea" is good for children. "Adults at home have a hobby of drinking tea. This year, the child asked herself to make tea, and we also respected her hobby. She sometimes soaks a small cup of green tea when she does her homework. " Mom said with a smile, in tea tasting, children can learn concentration, self-discipline and etiquette, and feel beautiful and warm.
"I don’t have the opportunity to be with my mother in my usual activities. Today, I will learn tea culture together, and my mother can accompany me!" Sun Jinglou, a fifth-grade student at Hangzhou Tianhang Experimental School, told reporters. Tide journalists noticed that Sun Jinglou was always the first one to raise his hand and answer quickly and accurately, and he also took notes carefully. "I listened carefully to the teacher’s lecture on tea culture, and I was very interested." According to Sun Jinglou’s mother, tea culture, as an important part of China’s traditional culture, also contains profound humanistic feelings and life wisdom. By experiencing tea culture, children can learn to respect tradition, feel the richness of history and the charm of culture, cultivate their love and pride in traditional culture, and let them know how to get along with others and how to respect and care for others.
It is reported that on the morning of January 27th and 28th, New Hope Shuangfeng Dairy, a big-name factory in Linping Economic and Technological Development Zone, specially opened the future factory experience tour to the fans of Chaoxin News, and the registration is currently in full swing!

Baseball, the first carrier of American dream spirit | column

Sports Industry Ecosphere www.ecosports.cn

Basketball, ice hockey and rugby are all very hot. Why is baseball the only American national sport?

Why is it that MLB, which seems to have a slow pace, is deeply loved by American audiences today?

Behind this series of questions, Chen Shengyin, a columnist of the ecological circle and a senior reporter of five-star sports, brought us a story about American baseball culture and told us about the greatness of baseball.

Column | Chen Shengyin

Chen Shengyin, a columnist of Ecosphere, is a senior reporter of five-star sports. He started his career in 2002, and has reported many top-level events such as European Cup, Asian Games, NFL Super Bowl, NBA Finals and MLB World Series.

What is baseball culture like? Start with this story

Brother Quan invited me to tell you about American baseball culture. So, let’s start with the story of an 8-year-old girl.

Hailey Dawson was born in Henderson, Nevada in 2010. Xiao Haili is an unfortunate girl. She was born.Suffer fromPollan syndrome. PollanSyndromeIt is one of the most difficult diseases in the medical field at present. Up to now, its cause is still unclear. The main symptom is deformity of breast, chest wall and upper limbs. Xiao Haili lost three fingers in her right hand from the moment she was born, and the only thumb and little finger left were not fully developed.

Thanks to modern technology, with the help of engineering experts at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Xiao Haili finally got her own right hand at the age of 5! Experts finally made a new type of prosthesis by using 3D printing technology. This 3D prosthesis, which has been precisely printed and made, is more perfect than traditional products. Xiao Haili wears it not as a decoration, but as a normal person.

When she first started training artificial limbs, Xiao Haili’s parents let her throw baseball. There are two reasons: first, baseball pitching can have a good training for the accuracy, strength and control of opponents, and second, because of the influence of Xiao Haili’s father Greg. Greg Dawson is from Maryland. The love of his life is not only his family, but also his hometown team Baltimore Orioles. In a subtle way, the whole Dawson family has now become an Orioles fan. Xiao Haili and her brother Zach usually like watching and playing baseball.

In the garden at home, when Xiao Haili threw the ball hard with her "mechanical right hand", Greg later recalled, "Yes, we all cried the moment the ball fell into my glove."

"Mom, I still want to pitch in Orioles Park!" That night, Xiao Haili made a wish before going to bed. At that time, she probably didn’t even think of it. In the next three years, she not only fulfilled this wish, but also created history.

Xiao Haili’s mother sent an email to the Baltimore Orioles, and she got a quick response. On August 17, 2015, she flew as far as Sleepless in Seattle, and the Dawsons came to the Orioles Park Stadium. Before the start of the game that day, more than 30,000 fans of the whole audience drummed together.ZhangjiaOil, Xiao Haili walked onto the pitcher’s hill and threw the first ball for the Orioles.

Because the 3D printed prosthesis is assembled from more than 30 parts and can be replaced at will, Xiao Haili changed all her "manipulator" into orange (oriole logo color) on that day. After the game that day, the reporter asked Xiao Haili, "What do you want to do next?" Xiao Haili replied timidly, "I want to be able to pitch at all courts."

From that day on, for three years and 30 days, on September 16th, 2018, when Xiao Haili threw the first ball of the competition in los angeles angels Stadium, history was written as follows: she became the first person on the planet to complete the kick-off ceremony in 30 MLB30 stadiums.

Derek kittel, the legendary captain of the new york Yankees and now the owner of Miami Marlins, blessed Little Haili: "Today, you are our angel, and you have inspired everyone, including me."

Sports bring us too much positive energy like Xiao Haili, but as far as Xiao Haili’s story is concerned, only baseball can write a script like her. Because in the United States, even though American football is the largest sport and basketball is the best in globalization, baseball will always be the first carrier of the American dream spirit.

Baseball is an important part of American culture-no, this statement is not accurate. It should be said that baseball has been completely integrated into American culture and into all aspects of Americans.

FIRST PITCH, the beginning of everything

From a fan’s point of view, there are many ways to let her participate in professional competitions in person. But in the United States, there is no way to go beyond the kick-off. There are KICK-OFF in American football, TIP-OFF in basketball and FIRST-PUCK in ice hockey, all of which are the signs of the official start of the game.

But none of them can match FIRST PITCH.

In fact, it is not difficult for fans who know the four major sports to imagine that American football, basketball and ice hockey are all coherent sports. If someone outside the game participates in the opening ceremony of the above games, the game can only be separated. Baseball, which is relatively static, will not have this problem. Although FIRST PITCH has nothing to do with the official game, fans prefer to regard this sacred ceremony as a signal to tell everyone that the game has started!

For Americans, especially in the northeast, this signal can even be regarded as the beginning of a year. Among the four major leagues, only baseball is a single-year event, and the season usually starts from the end of March to the beginning of April.

At this time, the northern cities are generally just in the spring. For Americans, on the Opening Day of MLB, the stadium is full of green eyes and the smell of soil in the nose. With the first ball thrown, this not only means the beginning of the baseball season, but also means: spring is here! The new year has really begun!

Of course, the kick-off ceremony can have such a high status in the minds of fans today, and thanks to Ronald Reagan, the most people-friendly president in American history. Before him, the guests who kicked off the ball were usually arranged in the first row of the stands behind home plate, and then stood up in their seats and threw the first ball. On the opening day of MLB in 1984, Mr. Reagan, then president of the United States, appeared at the Memorial Stadium, the home of Baltimore Orioles, without informing anyone.

Reagan’s excitement made the security guards at the scene have a headache. Because there was no preparation at home, Reagan’s seat was finally above the third base. This position is obviously not suitable for tee-off, and the action is relatively large when tee-off, and the surrounding environment looks unsafe. But since the president has arrived at the scene and it is the opening day, it is really unreasonable not to come to FIRST PITCH.

Finally, Reagan gave the solution. He finally walked onto the pitcher’s hill and threw the first ball of the 1984 season-at that moment, everyone found that the kick-off looked more integrated with the game in this position. Since then, the FIRST PITCH on the pitcher’s mound has formed a new practice.

The most symbolic of FIRST PITCH is undoubtedly October 30, 2001. New york Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks played against each other in the World Series. In the third game, George W. Bush came to the scene. The significance of this game is that it is the first game of the highest level baseball decisive battle in new york City after the "911" incident. When George W. Bush threw the first ball in NYPD uniform, the whole Yankee Stadium stands shouted "U-S-A". All American media admit that only baseball can unite the whole of new york, no, the whole of America.

But this time FIRST PITCH has a lot of interesting tidbits.

After all, FIRST PITCH is a ceremony. Usually, the pitching guests are not professional players, so they will pitch at the front of the mound, but George W. Bush stood at the standard position of the pitching line that night and sent the pitch. For this reason, ESPN also specially produced a small feature, starting from Reagan, comparing the pitching actions of presidents, and Bush was indeed the best pitcher-after all, he used to be the owner of the MLB team Texas Rangers.

Despite his high level, Bush was criticized that night. After the aftermath of the terrorist incident, his preparations for this FIRST PITCH were a bit overdone. Except that the security in the stadium was upgraded to the highest level that day, NYPD’s coat was actually wearing a thick bulletproof vest, so it looked particularly bloated. In order to show his courage, Bush walked on the court alone, but in fact, a bodyguard followed him all the time, but no one noticed-because the bodyguard was wearing a referee’s uniform.

So this time FIRST PITCH is still quite controversial: no one wants this pitch, which represents American strength and unity, to be so timid.

Because FIRST PITCH is sacred and pure for Americans. As Hailey Dawson brought us: Every time I throw a ball, she tells the world that I don’t bow to fate, and my life really begins!

Baseball, everyone’s sport.

The inspiring thing about Xiao Haili is that she overcame physical obstacles and achieved the same things as ordinary people.

This is the hope that baseball has always brought. For Americans, the biggest special feature of baseball is that everyone, even if you have nothing special, can make achievements in baseball.

Needless to say, ice hockey is a sport that mainly belongs to its neighbors in the north and further north, even in the United States.

American football, which is "the sport of the strongest person in the world", must reach the peak of human beings in strength and speed in order to stand out from it.

Basketball, height is an insurmountable topic. Even if small ball tactics are popular nowadays, you should at least have a height of 1.8 meters-well, the average height of adult men in the United States today is 1.76 meters.

But baseball is different. Just like the United States as a melting pot of the world, this sport can accommodate everyone.

First of all, it doesn’t care about your physical fitness. You can have no speed, so practice your own blows and bring points to the team; You can have no strength, so improve your hitting accuracy and make yourself a guy with a high base rate; You may lack batting talent, but you may have a good sense of the ball and be an excellent defender …


In short, as long as you look for your talents and work hard to improve them, you will eventually be useful in baseball games. In 2008, when Dustin-Pedro, a second baseman with 75,80 kilograms of 1 meter, won the American League MVP, ESPN famous baseball commentator Buster Olney once pointed out in his column:

"When you watch a major league game, basically, you can always find a guy in the game who is very similar to you. You can’t be Kobe Bryant or Tom Brady, but you can see yourself in Pedro. He is too ordinary, not tall or strong. His parents run a tire shop in a small town in northern California. He was born there and grew up leisurely. As a child, Pedro played American football and baseball, as well as tennis. He kept practicing his hitting, and he didn’t strike out once for a whole season in high school. Then he was selected by the Red Sox and improved himself in the minor league until today. "

Baseball gives every boy the possibility to realize his heroic dream. Today, the tolerance of baseball is not only for Americans, but also for every immigrant. In American history, baseball has taken the most important step towards racial integration. Whenever you mention Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, there is another name you can’t forget.

Jackie Robinson, a black boy from southern Georgia, signed a contract with Brooklyn Dodge (now Los Angeles Dodge) in 1947. When he made his major league debut on April 15 that year, it also represented that the colored barrier of baseball for more than 60 years was broken in one fell swoop.

At that time, even in Dodge’s locker room, there was racial discrimination, but the great Jackie was very calm: "I don’t care whether you like me or not. All I need is that you must give me respect for human beings."

Today, the whole MLB has also given Jackie Robinson the highest praise: in 2004, his number retired in the whole league, which of course does not mean that No.42 disappeared on the court. On April 15th every year, the day Jackie first stepped onto the major league stage, every player will wear number 42 in all the games that day. This day is Jackie Robinson Day. On this day every year, you will find that Jackie’s influence is not only in baseball.

Nowadays, on April 15th every year, on social networks, from Obama to JAY-Z to Jamie Foxx to LeBron, almost everyone pays tribute to this baseball player-without his efforts to break down barriers, the status of ethnic minorities in American society may not exist today. It is this step taken in the most traditional baseball game in the United States that the black civil rights movement has reached a new level.

Fifty years after Jackie Robinson entered MLB, a young man from Panama appeared. When he first arrived in new york at the age of 21, he didn’t even speak a word of English, but he clearly knew Jackie’s story.

So he also chose No.42, hoping to realize the same dream as his predecessors in this strange land. Later, this young Panamanian, Mariano Rivera, became the greatest finisher in history.

Rivera is Jackie Robinson of this era and the epitome of all Latin American descendants. In his 19-year career, he ended the game 652 times. Every American knows: "When Mariano walks onto the mound, it means the end of the game."

In 2004, the league retired No.42 as a whole, but it still made an opening: players who were still wearing No.42 jerseys at that time could keep their numbers. As a result, Rivera became the last player in the major leagues to use number 42. It is also gratifying that this number with special significance to baseball can have such a great ending.

Like Rivera, whether in Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, Venezuela … or Cuba, many people rely on baseball to gain recognition and finally gain a foothold in the United States. On the opening day of the 2018 season, 236 of the 877 players from 30 teams were born in Latin America, accounting for 27% of the total.

Alex Cora, the coach of this year’s World Series champion Boston Red Sox, is a Puerto Rican. In order to appreciate his great contribution and achievements this season, the Red Sox specially let Cora return to his hometown of Caguas with the World Series championship trophy in these days.

Champion, waiting for every city

As a Baltimore Orioles fan, when Xiao Haili was asked what her next wish was, she replied, "I hope the Orioles can win the championship, so my father will be very happy."

Indeed, after the great success from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s, the Baltimore Orioles have not won the World Series for 35 years. Among the four major American leagues, MLB is probably the most difficult to win the championship.

The scarcity of playoff places and the changeable sports characteristics have led to the tragedy of many teams with a long tradition and a long history. Only in this background, the persistence of the fans is even more valuable. In many cities in the United States, it is the greatest wish of fans to live to see the baseball team in their region reach the top. We only look at the history of this century:

In 2002, Anaheim (now renamed Los Angeles) Angels won the championship. In 1994, Disney made a film "Angels in the Outfield".

The story tells a little boy named Roger. He lives in a single-parent family, his father is a truck driver, and he has to run long distances. Roger hoped that his father could spend more time with him, but the answer he waited for was: "Let’s wait until the Angels win the World Series."

Yes, it is precisely because the Angels are a traditional bad team in the history, so this sentence in the film represents: This is simply impossible.

In the film, the real angel came in Roger’s prayer, and he helped the angels win the championship miraculously. Two years after the film was released, Disney bought the Angel Team, and finally, 42 years after the Angel Team was founded, the fairy tale became a reality.

Incidentally, baseball and Hollywood are inextricably linked. Every year, the official documentary of MLB World Series will invite famous artists as narrators. In 1989, Matt Damon and his good friend Ben Affleck first appeared together in the movie Neverland, when they played baseball fans in Fenway Park. In 2007 and 2013, when the Red Sox won the championship, they were proud of being the narrators of the official documentaries in those two years.

In 2005, the Chicago White Sox not only won the championship, but also completed an 88-year persistence. In 1919, eight players of the Chicago White Sox were suspended for allegedly taking bribes and deliberately losing the game, so the White Sox were satirized by the world as "black socks" and never recovered. It was not until the championship in 2005 that the whole team was really proud.

Chicago white socks

In 2008, Philadelphia won MLB, and won it again after 38 years. Because of the team name, Philadelphia people can also beat the 76 ers, eagles and trapezes in the whole city and become a symbol of the city. The "P" in their team emblem tells the world: I am from Philadelphia-you will find that Iverson’s favorite hat is Philadelphia, indicating his identity as a "son of Philadelphia".

In 2010, the San Francisco Giants made the whole Bay Area proud. Giants were originally in new york, and moved to the west in 1957, which was their first championship since they came to San Francisco!

In 2015, Kansas City Royal showed the world what a "diaosi counterattack" was. As a small market team, Royal is really struggling in the professional league. In 1985, they won the world series championship, but from 1986 to 2013, they didn’t make the playoffs for 28 years. The champion after 30 years makes this city completely crazy.

In 2017, it was the turn of the Houston astronauts. Four years ago, they were still a bad team that lost 111 games and lost 100+ in the regular season for three consecutive seasons. This professional team with the longest history in Houston has finally tasted the championship for the first time after its 56th season.

Of course, all of the above are inferior to the Boston Red Sox breaking the "curse of the baby" in 2004. The Red Sox staged the greatest reversal in the history of American professional sports when they were 3-0 behind their arch-rival Yankees in the American League final, and finally ended the 86-year wait for the championship in the whole "Red Sox country".

But to say that the most touching thing for fans in this century is the 2016 World Series. The two teams that fought on the highest stage that year-Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians-have been together for 174 years (107 years for Cubs and 67 years for Indians).

After seven battles, the bear finally ended the "goat curse". On the night of winning the championship, many Chicagoans put a broadcast in the cemetery to let their deceased relatives witness the moment they have been looking forward to all their lives.

The joy of the bear’s championship marks that people in Cleveland will continue to wait. Although LeBron has comforted the city, I’m afraid it will be until the Indians win the championship.

So 35 years in Baltimore is really not too long, but it may be far more difficult for the Orioles to wait for the next championship than for Xiao Haili to finish pitching on 30 courses.

Ok, now, do you understand why baseball has such a lofty position in the eyes of the American people?

The Italian Trentino Cup officially kicked off, and the China men’s basketball team ushered in its first opponent, the Cape Verdean men’s basketball team, which beat Nigeria to the World Cup. There are four teams participating in the Trentino Cup, namely China, Italy, Cape Verde and Turkey. The winner of the first day will compete for the title in the final the next day. Unfortunately, China men’s basketball team was unable to send player Li Kaier in this national team debut.

In the end, the China men’s basketball team defeated the Cape Verdean men’s basketball team with an impressive score of 86-66, and will also face the winner between Italy and Turkey.

Cui Yongxi played in the game for 16 minutes and 52 seconds. His shooting percentage was as high as 8 of 9, and his 3-pointers were 2 of 3. He contributed 18 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist, showing his comprehensive offensive ability. Fang Shuo also performed well, scoring 11 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds. In addition, Zhang Zhenlin contributed 10 points and 2 rebounds, Wang Zhelin and qi zhou scored 9 points and 8 points respectively, and Hu Jinqiu and Zhu Junlong also contributed 8 points and 6 points respectively. In addition, players such as Zhao Jiwei, Zhao Rui and Fu Hao also added firepower to the China men’s basketball team.

In this game, the China men’s basketball team has made remarkable progress on the offensive end. First of all, they used more pick-and-roll tactics, providing more choices and moving space for the team. Secondly, players create more opportunities and empty spaces in the basket by running without the ball. Finally, the team has also improved the passing and flowing of the ball, which can make better use of space and realize the transfer of the ball and teamwork.

Generally speaking, China men’s basketball team won a remarkable victory in the first match of the Italian Trentino Cup. The excellent performance of players such as Cui Yongxi and the overall offensive improvement of the team left a deep impression on people. We are full of expectations for the performance of the China men’s basketball team in the next game, and believe that they can continue to show their outstanding strength and bring more glory to the basketball cause in China. Come on, China Men’s Basketball Team!
