The starting price may exceed 120,000 BYD Qin L will appear at the Beijing Auto Show.

The headlights of the new car are sharp in shape, and the internal matrix light source layout further highlights the three-dimensional sense of the front face.

It will no longer be difficult to promote the development of public fitness norms by taking multiple measures.

  Garden village, Nanma Town, Dongyang City, Zhejiang Province, upgraded the square between Jiulian Community and Mafu Community, adding fitness equipment and children’s amusement facilities, laying a plastic floor, and drawing a standard court. Together with the previous dance floor and elderly activity center, it formed a "pocket" fitness square that benefited the nearby people. Photo by Bao Kangxuan (People’s Vision)

  In recent years, Sihong County, Suqian City, Jiangsu Province has strengthened the construction of venues and facilities around the masses, improved the fitness function, opened it to the public free of charge, and strived to create a "15-minute fitness circle". The picture shows that a few days ago, the children of the super roller skating training class in Sihong County practiced roller skating in the Weishui Wetland Park.

  With the improvement of people’s living standards, the national fitness enthusiasm is growing, and square dance, brisk walking and other sports are loved by more and more people. However, the noise disturbing people, venue disputes, traffic safety and other issues caused by this can not be ignored, which brings new challenges to urban governance.

  How to meet the needs of public fitness while taking into account social order? As a city manager, on the one hand, the government should guide bodybuilders to abide by social order and establish a sense of rules; On the other hand, it is also necessary to increase the supply of public fitness space and focus on solving the problem of "where to exercise" for the masses.

  Fitness should not affect others.

  "It’s too painful to live in noise every day!" Liu Xiaoyun complained to reporters.

  Throughout the year, it is not the alarm clock that wakes up Liu Xiaoyun, the office worker, but the square dance aunt who gets up early downstairs to exercise and the chorus uncle who practices singing loudly. Liu Xiaoyun told reporters that there are people dancing in the square dance and singing in his neighborhood every morning and evening. The sound is so loud that you can hear it clearly even if you close the window. What makes her headache even more is that her son in elementary school can’t do his homework with peace of mind every day, which is unbearable.

  Why are public activities such as square dance so popular? Aunt Dong, who often dances square dance, told reporters: "Square dance is not difficult to learn. It can not only exercise, but also make friends. It is refreshing to come out and dance with everyone every day."

  For this reason, more and more middle-aged and elderly people have joined the square dance team, but it has also brought problems such as noise and occupying the venue. Conflicts between square dance participants and surrounding residents have occurred frequently. The square dance was also confronted by throwing water bags and high-pitched guns upstairs, and even staged a fight, which not only brought harm to both sides, but also affected social harmony and stability.

  Not only the square dance, but also the fitness activities such as running, whipping and playing top have been controversial. For example, the "runaway group" arbitrarily encroaches on motor vehicle lanes, ignores traffic lights, and affects traffic safety; Cyclists are crazy about "racing", shuttling back and forth on the sidewalk and accidentally hitting pedestrians; Whip-throwers dance like flies, making the surrounding fitness people jumpy … …

  In this regard, Pang Jiulin, director of Beijing Chunlin Law Firm, said that road rampage and motor vehicle lane "racing" are not only uncivilized behaviors, but also suspected of breaking the law. According to Articles 31 and 61 of the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People’s Republic of China, no unit or individual may occupy roads for non-traffic activities without permission; Pedestrians should walk on sidewalks, and those without sidewalks should walk by the roadside. According to Article 57 of the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People’s Republic of China, driving non-motor vehicles on the road should comply with the relevant traffic safety regulations, and non-motor vehicles should drive in non-motor vehicle lanes; On the road without non-motor vehicle lanes, you should drive on the right side of the roadway.

  "Exercise is understandable, and everyone should participate, but personal interests should not be based on the distress of others and interfere with the normal life of others." Yang Hongshan, a professor at the School of Public Administration of Renmin University of China, said.

  Combining rigidity with softness to solve the problem of disturbing people

  "It’s not that I haven’t complained, but it has been ineffective. When the managers came, they could only persuade the dancers to turn down the music, and when they left, the sound was loud again. " Liu Xiaoyun said helplessly.

  Yang Hongshan believes that the uncivilized phenomenon of public fitness is frequent, and one of the important reasons is the lack of rules and regulations for uncivilized behavior. The existing norms are not clear enough. "Where and when to dance in square dance, what rules to follow, and the level of sound, even if it disturbs the people, who will coordinate and who will supervise, should have clear regulations."

  In fact, in recent years, the governance of "disturbing people’s fitness" such as square dance has been strengthened. In 2017, the Notice on Guiding the Healthy Development of Square Dance Activities issued by the State Sports General Administration stipulated that the noise generated by square dance fitness activities should not affect the surrounding students’ classes and the normal life of residents. On August 17th this year, the Law on the Prevention and Control of Noise Pollution in People’s Republic of China (PRC) (Draft) was submitted to the 30th meeting of the 13th the National People’s Congress Standing Committee (NPCSC) for deliberation, and the existing law was revised, and it was proposed to punish the noise disturbing people in public places.

  Wang Yi, an expert from the Expert Committee of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, said that the relevant laws are not perfect at present, and he suggested that a law on the management of urban public spaces should be formulated to restrict the behavior of urban public spaces.

  After the specification is clear, it needs to be implemented more forcefully. "The current law enforcement needs to be strengthened. If we can establish a more professional urban management team and increase the law enforcement of behaviors that affect the order of urban management, it will be of great help to reduce such behaviors." Wang Yi said.

  "Civilized urban public space was not formed in a day. Punishment is not an end, and regulations alone cannot be done once and for all. " Yang Hongshan believes that publicity and education should be strengthened to guide people to establish a sense of civilization and improve their own quality.

  "Legal education should start with dolls." Wang Yi believes that legal education should be strengthened from kindergarten and primary school, and the proportion and class hours of legal courses should be increased, so as to enhance the public morality of the whole people and form a self-discipline atmosphere in the whole society that does not cross the border and affect others.

  In addition to hard law enforcement, there are also many places that try to use technical means to solve such problems skillfully.

  Recently, the smart square dance system installed in Shanghai Minhang Gumei Population and Culture Park has been well received by nearby residents. The system uses directional sound technology to control the sound propagation range within the included angle of 30 in front of it. The sound in the directional area is clear, but the sound on the side and back decreases rapidly. The sound that is vaguely similar to the "buzzing" of mosquitoes is heard at the side 70 meters or the back 50 meters. In order to strictly control the upward transmission volume and avoid disturbing the residents of nearby high-rise residential buildings, the grape trellis where the system is located is equipped with a ceiling.

  Since its installation one month ago, the street office has received almost zero complaints from residents about square dance. A resident living nearby said: "After the ceiling is installed, the sound of square dance can hardly be heard at home."

  More and more cities such as Beijing, Nanning, Chengdu, etc. have sprung up "silent square dance": without high-decibel loudspeakers, the whole square is quiet, and the aunts and grandmothers wearing wireless FM headphones move neatly and dance.

  Reasonable planning of urban space

  In the view of Zhang Shangwu, a professor in college of architecture and urban planning, from the disturbance of square dance to the occupation of roads by "mobsters" and "bikers" all reflect the contradiction between the supply of public services and the demand for national fitness.

  Li Jia, a cycling enthusiast, is often troubled by the difficulty in finding a venue suitable for cycling and fitness. "Bicycle lanes on many roads are very narrow. In many places, bicycle lanes and car auxiliary roads are mixed, and electric cars and pedestrians often appear on bicycle lanes, which is very unsafe." Li Jia told reporters.

  According to the data released by the State Sports General Administration, by the end of 2020, there were 3,713,400 sports venues nationwide, covering an area of 3.099 billion square meters, with a per capita sports venue area of 2.20 square meters. This has improved compared with previous years, but it is still far below the level of neighboring countries such as Japan and South Korea, and there is a big gap in outdoor sports infrastructure.

  "This is not unrelated to China’s past urban construction standards and construction concepts." Zhang Shangwu pointed out that in the past, urban planning and construction mainly focused on the traffic function of streets, but paid insufficient attention to the slow traffic and daily life functions and activities, and the residents’ daily fitness space was insufficient. In modern urban life, streets are increasingly endowed with multiple roles. An ideal street is not only an infrastructure for vehicles and pedestrians, but also an important space carrier for urban life and public activities. The new street space design should adapt to the new social needs.

  In this regard, many experts interviewed by the reporter said that it is necessary to work hard in increments, increase the supply of fitness venues, open up some sections for sports enthusiasts, and designate special fitness venues.

  From the Healthy China Action (2019— 2030), to Opinions on Strengthening the Construction of National Fitness Facilities and Developing Mass Sports, National Fitness Plan (2021— 2025) and other documents have been issued. In recent years, the state has continuously introduced relevant policy guidelines to promote the creation of a "15-minute fitness circle" and fully solve the problem of "where to exercise" for the masses.

  Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission organized and implemented the short-board project of national fitness facilities, and arranged for the central budget to invest 2 billion yuan to support 177 public service facilities projects in sports parks, national fitness centers and public stadiums, including standard track and field runways and standard football venues, social football venues, fitness trails and outdoor sports.

  Zhang Shangwu said that the redistribution of public activity space should be carefully calculated, and the rational use of public space should be guided and the potential of space resources should be tapped and integrated through urban planning and legal construction. "For example, we can integrate the internal space of some units with the urban space, and coordinate the playgrounds and small green spaces within some schools, enterprises and institutions to be open to the public for use in a specific period of time, so as to improve the efficiency of space utilization. Of course, this is inseparable from the improvement of the city’s refined governance capacity. " Zhang Shangwu said.

  Revitalize Kugaji, marginal land and other resources, and plan to build multifunctional sports fields, sports parks, fitness trails and stadiums that are close to the community, accessible and open to the public … … Everywhere is already in action. Beijing will open bicycle lanes, build 36 kilometers of community hiking trails in 2020, and complete the comprehensive management of 378 kilometers of slow-moving systems; Chengdu issued the first "Guidelines for Setting Sports Space at Home" to promote the implantation of sports facilities in "Silver Corners in Phnom Penh" such as old factories, roof spaces and spaces under bridges, and 50 "Community Sports Corners" at home will be built this year; Jiangsu has accelerated the construction of sports parks, and has built more than 1,300 sports parks covering urban and rural areas, with a per capita public sports area of 3.15 square meters … …

  I believe that with the joint efforts of all parties, people with different sports needs can have somewhere to go, and "where to exercise" will no longer be a difficult problem.

Making money while playing games? What kind of "immortal profession" is an e-sports sparring teacher?

  BEIJING, April 24th (Xing Rui) The topic "Wang Sicong spends 666 yuan an hour as a sparring partner in the game" has recently caused a heated discussion among netizens in Weibo. While watching "eating melons", many people are also curious about the profession of "game sparring".

  With the rapid development of e-sports industry, many new occupations have been born. E-sports anchors and professional players have gradually entered the public’s field of vision and are no longer unfamiliar. In the past two years, the e-sports sparring teacher, which has gradually emerged, seems to be "mysterious" a lot.

  Spend 3 million to find a sparring partner

  "E-sports sparring instructor", as its name implies, is paid to accompany others to play games. In terms of industry terminology, the customers served by sparring instructors are called "bosses". If you are willing to spend 666 yuan to find Wang Sicong as a sparring partner, then you will become his "boss".

  Open the game sparring platform where Wang Sicong is located. The price of sparring on it ranges from ten yuan to tens of yuan per hour. It is not difficult to see that Wang Sicong’s fee of 666 yuan is far higher than the general price of game sparring on this platform.

  Wang Sicong entered a platform as a "game sparring teacher".

  As the saying goes, "there will be a market if there is demand", and the part-time game sparring of "national husband" actually reflects the demand of many young people for "finding someone to play games with me".

  According to an industry data previously released by the game sparring website, in 2019, more than 27 million players searched for "Great God" to accompany them to play games, and about 68% of them were "post-95 s".

  There is no doubt that "finding game sparring" has become a trend of entertainment for this year’s e-sports youth. For their favorite video games, many users have shown amazing spending power. Take the above-mentioned platform as an example. Last year, the "Golden Master Dad" with the highest order consumption spent a total of 3.08 million yuan to find someone to play games with him. During the period from January 24th to February 29th this year, a 22-year-old boy from Shanghai spent more than 1500 yuan a day on average, and found 12 "great gods" to accompany him to play 1850 games.

  Data Map: On December 3, 2019, in the e-sports education center of Changchun Health Vocational College, students practiced the popular e-sports games in the classroom, while teachers taught the skills of game operation. The major of e-sports and management opened in September 2018 requires students to study more than 20 courses in three years, and e-sports training is one of them. China News Service reporter Zhang Yao photo

  Millions of people’s "new rice bowls"

  The blowout consumer demand naturally attracted a large number of e-sports enthusiasts to start the career of sparring. According to statistics, a game sparring APP attracted 2.9 million game sparring players last year, and 1.29 million of them made money by sharing game skills. The average monthly income of full-time sparring is as high as 7857 yuan, and the average monthly income of part-time sparring is 2929 yuan.

  In the e-sports industry, it has become a consensus that e-sports game sparring instructors can earn money, and some sparring instructors at the top of the pyramid can even make a fortune through this profession. Earlier, some media reported that a senior game sparring teacher in his early 20 s earned millions of dollars by playing games with others and paid off his mortgage.

  Age distribution of game gods released by a platform.

  Although not every e-sports sparring instructor can achieve the "small goal" of earning 100,000 yuan a month, realistically speaking, this profession has at least become a personalized profession with the opportunity to get a high salary.

  In addition, game sparring may also become the longest career in the e-sports circle. On the platform of game sparring in Wang Sicong, the average age of game gods is 23.27, and the oldest is 39. Compared with the trend of younger e-sports anchors, it seems that the age requirements of players for e-sports sparring instructors are not too harsh.

  "Game sparring" also has official certification.

  In 2019, the E-sports Branch of China Communication Industry Association issued the "Standards for E-sports Trainers in China" after the profession of game sparring was sought after by more and more people. This means that "e-sports sparring instructor" has been officially recognized as a professional skill, and game sparring has officially become a nationally recognized and controlled profession.

  In this document, e-sports sparring instructors are divided into three levels: primary, intermediate and advanced. In order to obtain vocational skill certification, they need to pass theoretical knowledge examination and skill assessment, and both of them are qualified with a score of 60 (100%) or above.

  E-sports sparring instructor certification platform.

  Although e-sports sparring teachers have the qualification certification standards, some game sparring platforms do not require their sparring gods to pass the skill certification assessment. It’s just that the price of certified game play is higher than that of ordinary play.

  It is reported that the total number of registered e-sports sparring instructors (including the names predicted by various channels) is about 50,000, and the number of people who have passed the examination is about 2,500-3,000. Although the above data has not been confirmed by official channels, it can at least help people to establish a basic judgment, that is, it may not be as easy as expected to get a paper certificate, and excellent game sparring is only a few people.

  The sadness behind glamour

  It is undeniable that there are "big coffees" in this industry that can earn 100,000 yuan a month by playing games with people, but these people are only rare in the circle. In contrast, many ordinary game sparring partners are far less capital and confidence than Wang Sicong’s asking price of 666 yuan an hour.

  On a game sparring platform, a large number of sparring instructors have never received a single business since they settled in. In the highly competitive industry, an excellent sparring instructor not only has superb game skills, but also shows good comprehensive quality in emotional intelligence and communication skills. As a full-time sparring instructor, playing games may soon become a repetitive, boring and mechanical labor.

  Data Map: On August 23, 2019, the 2019 Hong Kong Computer Communication Festival opened at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. The theme of this year’s Computer Festival is "Technology improves life and creates infinite possibilities", and many well-known brands in the information industry participated. The picture shows many e-sports players participating in the e-sports competition. China News Service reporter Zhang Yushe

  In the face of mixed players, some game sparring will also encounter "bosses" with impure purposes and bad luck. In the final analysis, e-sports sparring instructor is also a kind of service industry, and the demand for social interaction has been running through it. When the appearance and voice have also become factors for players to consider when placing orders, higher requirements have been put forward for the supervision of the industry.

  As a brand-new profession, the development of "e-sports sparring instructor" is undoubtedly still in its infancy. Behind it, it is not as glamorous as imagined. Some people earn millions a year, while others get nothing. Even if you are full of love for e-sports, the way of a sparring teacher is by no means that you can go.

Receive relief, be homeless

The United States is not only the largest economy in the world, but also a western country with the most serious polarization between the rich and the poor. For a long time, it can’t get out of the dilemma that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
Christmas bells and homeless people
A few days before Christmas, it was cold in new york, USA. On the morning of 23rd, residents went to St. michaels’s Episcopal Church on the west side of Central Park in northern Manhattan. Instead of worshipping, they gathered outside the back door of the church with bags in their hands or shopping carts, waiting for free food and warm gloves, shoes and clothes taken out of the church. Whenever the staff took out some items, the people present rushed to get them into their hands, and the staff had to say loudly, "Learn to share".
The picture shows that on December 24th, in new york, USA, the staff of "new york Public Food Storage Room" distributed free food to the public. Xinhua news agency
On the east side of Central Park, new york Public Food Store, a non-governmental organization there, did not arrange to distribute free food that day, but "regular customers" still came to find out from time to time. After hearing the disappointing news, some people left disappointed, while others kept ringing the doorbell and expected a response.
On the afternoon of 23rd, Jose Aristeo, who was about sixty years old, came here with an empty shopping cart. He told reporters that he had been here once this morning.

Multiple factors boost the polarization between the rich and the poor in the United States
This is not the first time that such a scene has appeared. In the past 100 years, the gap between the rich and the poor in the United States has shown a "positive U-shaped" trend of change.
The polarization between the rich and the poor in the United States is caused by many factors, including capital monopoly, electoral politics, government policies, the weakening of trade unions and racial discrimination.

Polarization and unfair distribution of wealth are the normal and inevitable trend of capitalism., leading to the accumulation of wealth and poverty in the United States at the same time. Since the 1970s, American conservatism and liberalism have risen, and the concepts of marketization and internationalization have replaced the values of equality. The American economic system has turned to advocating privatization, giving up imposing progressive taxes, weakening trade unions and relaxing financial control. These policy choices have made the problem of polarization between the rich and the poor even more hopeless.
The weak strength of trade unions intensifies the polarization between the rich and the poor.In the 1950s, about one-third of American workers belonged to trade unions. In 1978, the membership rate of trade unions was still 23.8%, which dropped to 11.3% in 2011 and 10.3% in 2021. The proportion of black workers joining trade unions is higher than that of other races, and the decline of unionization has a particularly serious impact on black workers, aggravating the poverty of black ethnic groups.
The gap between the rich and the poor is closely related to race.The average income of American black, Hispanic or Latino families is about half that of white families, and their net wealth is only 15% to 20% of that of white families. Federal Reserve data show that this gap has widened significantly in the past few decades. Since 1989, the median wealth of white families has tripled, while the wealth of black, Hispanic and Latino families has hardly increased. According to a survey conducted by the Federal Reserve in 2019, the net assets of the median white family in the United States are 10 times that of the median black family, and the total wealth of the 400 richest American billionaires exceeds the total wealth of 10 million black American families.
Racial discrimination in the job market is serious.For a long time, the unemployment rate of blacks in the United States is about twice that of whites. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, the unemployment rate in the United States reached a historical low of 3.5%, but the unemployment rate of black and Hispanic workers was still much higher than this. Black Americans are poorly represented in high-paying positions in enterprises. In 2020, there were only four black CEOs in Fortune 500 companies.
The adverse consequences of the widening gap between rich and poor in the United States
More and more evidence shows that high wealth inequality is not conducive to economic and social development.
First of all, with the widening gap between the rich and the poor, demonstrations broke out in the United States in recent years.From the "Occupy Wall Street Movement" that originated in the United States in 2011 to the "Black Lives Matters" parade that opposed the violent law enforcement by American police in 2020, some demonstrations even turned into violent incidents. Behind the large-scale demonstrations are the dissatisfaction and struggle of the bottom people in the United States against racial discrimination, class solidification and wealth differentiation. In the case of constant social conflicts, the economic and social development of the United States will be affected to varying degrees.
Secondly,The polarization between the rich and the poor intensifies social injustice in the United States.In the United States, higher education resources are always disproportionately inclined to the rich, and low-income people lose equal opportunities for education. According to a statistic, among the 38 elite American universities, the number of students from the top 1% American families is more than that from the bottom 60% American families. According to a research report in Journal of American Medical Association, the average life expectancy gap between the poorest class and the richest class in California has widened to 15.51 years due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The deepening of racial conflicts, frequent urban riots and serious violent crimes … The chaos in American society is closely related to the widening gap between the rich and the poor.
Finally, high wealth inequality will breed more rent-seeking behaviors and bring social injustice.Joseph stiglitz, an economist, defines rent-seeking as "the act of trying to get more share of the cake without making a big cake". In American society, politicians generally need private financial support to carry out election campaigns. Moreover, compared with the poor, the rich often have more social influence and discourse power, and economic inequality will aggravate political inequality at this time. On the one hand, the rich tend to support tax relief policies, resist public welfare expenditure items and redistribution policies; On the other hand, the rich will persuade the government to deregulate their interest groups, thus gaining monopoly market and excess income. When the rich have more dominance in political decision-making, while the political participation of low-income people or the working class continues to decline, the division and opposition of American society will become more serious.

Xiong Yihan, a professor at Fudan University, once said:The measure of a society’s material civilization depends on how its poor people live; A measure of a society’s spiritual civilization depends on how well its rich people do.When the United States moves forward as the world’s number one capitalist country, it may be time to lift the glamorous veil and face up to the cold reality of its polarization between the rich and the poor.
