This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide follow

lowing crashes March 10 in Ethiopia and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

上海龙凤Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an autom

ated anti-stall device, apparently forced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fat

al plunge when it erroneously determined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.上海龙凤

There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, including about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend abo

上海龙凤ut $1 billion to update and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from rep

eatedly pointing the nose of the plane down and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.上海龙凤品茶微信

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg refused to上海龙凤

say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six-year development and cer

tification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.上海龙凤品茶微信

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercial service by

Debate moderators are expected to raise such topics a

topics as economy, healthcare, education, immigration, climate change, and forei

gn policy, similar to those for the first group of partic上海楼凤ipants on Wednesday night.

上海楼凤According to debate rules, each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 se

conds for rebuttals. There are no opening statements, but each candidate will have one minute for a closing statement.

Wednesday’s debate was attended by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts上海楼凤

, another top-tier contender, along with former Congressman Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Senator

上海楼凤Cory Booker of New Jersey, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and five others.

Together, 20 candidates qualified for the first primary debate for either scoring at least 1 perce

nt support in three qualifying polls or receiving donations from at least 65,000 unique donors.

The two-night debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Cen上海楼凤

er for the Performing Arts, was the first of a dozen that the Democratic National Committee had planned for the party’s primary.

The second debate is scheduled for July 30-31 in Detroit, Michigan.

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t

上海楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from

上海楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj

ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct上海楼凤品茶微信

antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we

have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

上海楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ

ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 上海楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det

上海楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra

nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.
