The outlook of Culture Desert in southwest corner of Shanghai will be refreshed. It is reported that the southwest art and culture center, which cost RMB48,000,000 and covered an area of 11,948m2, will be opened to the public on the 30th day of this month. First-class Art Place Growing up in South-west Corner of Shanghai The south-west art and culture center, which has 5 stories, the streamline outlook and symbolizes an eagle shaking its giant wings, will inject new vigor into the cultural demand of nearly 200,000 people in Changqiao Community, Huajing Community, Lingyun Community of Xuhui District and some of the communities of Minhang District. It is said that the predecessor of this area was Longhua Town and Meilong Town of Shanghai County. Along with the development of the urbanization of the towns, there had been more roads; more buses more plants and better environments. However, it was almost seldom have culture and entertainment facilities. It was not convenient to go to the cinema and the theater. Hence, the government of Xuhui District invested nearly RMB50,000,000 to build the southwest art and culture center and planed to form a culture service circle of 15min’s distance in southwest Shanghai and make the people in the circle enjoy the modern culture without having to walk long way . The First Community Chain Cinema in Shanghai “We can see the film in the specialized cinema in the community!” Ms. Hu, who lived in Lingyun Community, got excited when she heard that the specialized cinema would be set up in the art center. She said: “In the past, I lived in the downtown area which was near the observatory and I used to go to Da Guangming Cinema and Hengshan Cinema because it was convenient. However, after I had moved to here where there are no culture and entertainment facilities, I don’t want to go anywhere. It cost too much for one trip. The price of the film was expensive and the traffic took more time. For example, it takes more than an hour to reach Xu Jiahui from here. With time, I had no interests on films.” Seeing the last interior finish of the buffet in the cinema, Ms. Hu thought the dream of seeing films in the community was coming true.

  • Authority: No Rice and More Dishes Will Even Make You Fatter

    Will it help to lose weight if you eat no rice? It was World Diabetes Mellitus’s Day yesterday, at the ceremony of www.sh-dm.com, Xu Manyin, Director of Shanghai Diabetes Mellitus Specialist Committee, pointed out that the protein and the fat would be burnt out with the carbohydrate which was provided by the rice. Hence, if you would like to lose weight, you have to eat at least 3 liang rice. No rice and more dishes will even make you fatter. Nowadays the youngsters especially the girls hardly eat the rice and other coarse grain in order to keep slim. They think it is all right to have more dishes that can provide enough nutrition. Xu Manyin said that it was not a good way because the carbohydrate of the rice was the source of the burning fat and if there were no rice, the fat would not be consumed. Furthermore, less rice and more dishes seemed that it would cut the main course of the fat, but in fact, the fried dishes would even gather the fat in the body. It is said that eating 0.5kg grain will be better for losing weight than the beef and mutton. Xu Manyin said that eating 3-6 liang rice was the most appropriate. If there are dinner parties in the evening, it is suitable to eat some coarse grain at lunch. Besides the rice, the cornmeal is also proper. It will also be useful to put some red beans, soybeans, green bean and little peas into the rice porridge. Moreover, diversification of the diet is important. We should have fewer sweetmeats, less briny food, more vegetable, more fruit and more milk and bean products. The varieties of the food should be prepared properly at each meal and we should have no ill-balanced feeding and no socks. From: Shanghai Morning Post
