For a country of its massive size and varied geography, however, it’s surprising how relatively few people outside China appreciate the extent of the country’s other destinations , many of them natural wonders to rival any in the world. Is it possible to limit a list of China’s superlative attractions to a mere 40?

Mummification in Korea and China: Mawangdui, Song, Ming and Joseon Dynasty Mummies
This article concerns the conceptualization and implementation of a new imaginary of law and geography in nineteenth-century China. That dichotomy explained for them the geographical contraction of Chinese society, the rise of Inner Asian dynasties, and the potential for China to expand once again. The Taiping war provided an opportunity for members of this group to put these ideas into practice by strategically suspending imperial law in favor of official activism in order to bring about more ideal social conditions.
From the s onward, this group worked to transform the Inner Asian territory of Xinjiang into a province.
the Public Health Treatment Center of Changsha, China were collected and analyzed. Findings: Of hospitalized patients with COVID, the median age was 45 years and mortality) were monitored up to February 20, , the final date of Zhi-jian Zheng, Shao-qin Qiu, Jie Luo, Chang-jiang Ye, Shao-yong Zhu,.
The Ar-Ar age spectra for 2 quartz samples display the saddle shape. This is in good agreement with the tectonic evolution of the Xuefengshan district and with some geochronological data available for Au, Sb and W deposits in this area. The low initial Nd isotope ratio of scheelites suggests that the fluid responsible for Au-Sb-W mineralization at the Woxi is of deep crustal origin and probably originated from the underlying Archaean continental basement rather than the host Proterozoic strata in western Hunan.
The constraints on the mineralization time and on the fluid source provide insight into the genesis of the Woxi deposit. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Fryer, B. Li, Z. Google Scholar.

Mainly due to linguistic barriers, however, the international knowledge of East Asian mummies has remained sketchy until recently. We thus analyse and summarize the outcomes of the studies so far performed in Korea and China in order to provide mummy experts with little-known data on East Asian mummies.
In this report, similarities and differences in the mummification processes and funerary rituals in Korea and China are highlighted. Although the historical periods, the region of excavation, and the structures of the graves differ, the cultural aspects, the mechanisms of mummification, and biological evidence appear to be essentially similar to each other. Independently from the way they are called locally, the Korean and Chinese mummies belong to the same group with a shared cultural background.
CHANGSHA, June 2 (Xinhua) — A stone tablet recording forest protection contents dating back to the Qing Dynasty () was discovered in With a height of meters and a side length of 45 cm, the cuboid has.
Materials and Methods: A total of 33 unmedicated patients with major depression and 12 healthy comparison subjects underwent single photon emission computed tomography SPECT imaging. SPECT imaging was restudied in posttreatment. All healthy subjects were normal results. The depressed patients showed rCBF decreased in the multiple regions. CHSGS treatment is effective, well-tolerated, and safe for depression.

Therefore, the goal of the present study is to simultaneously investigate the collision-induced dissociation patterns and the corresponding mechanism of isoquinoline alkaloids by mass spectrometry MS combined with computations. Each type of alkaloid was further classified by its characteristic fragmentation patterns and fragment ions. These characteristic fragmentation behaviours and fragment ions of isoquinoline alkaloids provide a solid foundation for the rapid and high-efficiency structural elucidation of similar metabolites in plant-derived medicines.
Isoquinoline alkaloids, such as the analgesic agents morphine and codeine, the anticancer and antitussive drug noscapine, and the antimicrobial agents berberine and sanguinarine, are derived biosynthetically from the amino acid tyrosine in the plant kingdom Fig. They are distributed extensively in herbal medicines in many parts of the world 3. Modern pharmacology studies have demonstrated that isoquinoline alkaloids have a wide range of biological activities, such as antimicrobial, antiviral, anticancer, antiproliferative, and antiplasmodial activities and acetylcholinesterase inhibitory and pain-killing effects 4 , 5.
To date, more than isoquinoline alkaloids have been detected from at least 10 plant families, namely, Papaveraceae, Berberidaceae, Rutaceae, Menispermaceae, Alangiaceae, Fabaceae, Ranunculaceae, Lauraceae, Annonaceae, and Fumariaceae 3.

Whilst archaeological evidence for many aspects of life in ancient China is well studied, there has been much less interest in ancient infectious diseases, such as intestinal parasites in past Chinese populations. Here, we bring together evidence from mummies, ancient latrines, and pelvic soil from burials, dating from the Neolithic Period to the Qing Dynasty, in order to better understand the health of the past inhabitants of China and the diseases endemic in the region.
Seven species of intestinal parasite have been identified, namely roundworm, whipworm, Chinese liver fluke, oriental schistosome, pinworm, Taenia sp.

Mawangdui , Wade-Giles romanization Ma-wang-tui , archaeological site uncovered in near Changsha , Hunan province, southeastern China. It is the burial place of a high-ranking official, the marquess of Dai, who lived in the 2nd century bc , and of his immediate family. He was one of many petty nobles who governed small semiautonomous domains under the Han dynasty.
The tombs were discovered during the construction of a hospital. In the same tomb, an exquisite banner was discovered in that shows the noblewoman on her journey to heaven. This banner has become important for the information that it provides about ancient Chinese religious beliefs and practices. Also uncovered at Mawangdui were lacquers and silks that have shed light on artistic styles of the Han period. Info Print Cite. Submit Feedback.
