  Overview of Volvo Car Company

  Volvo logo

  The name Volvo is Latin, which means "rolling forward". It was the brand name of a ball bearing before it was used in the first Volvo V4 on April 14th, 1927. The nameplate of Volvo car is a symbol of steel-a circle (iron mark) with an oblique arrow. The design idea of this logo originated from the Swedish steel industry which is famous for its durability. Since then, this steel symbol has become the representative of Volvo all over the world. For Volvo, this modern corporate brand logo also represents Volvo’s commitment to safety, quality and environmental protection.

  The Core Values of Volvo Cars: Safety, Quality and Environmental Protection

  Safety legend, leading the future technology

  All luxury brands have some leading edge-our advantage is safety, which is also one of the core values of Volvo cars. In Volvo Car Company, safety is always a comprehensive and complete solution. This overall view is the cornerstone of Volvo’s safety concept.

  We have the most powerful equipment and personnel to ensure our commitment to automobile safety. Volvo Car Safety Center is one of the most advanced car crash test centers in the world, and has conducted more than 2,500 crash tests since its establishment in 2000. Its crash test laboratory is equipped with two lanes, one is an adjustable movable lane and the other is a permanent fixed lane. In order to adapt to various test conditions, the adjustment angle of this movable lane can be up to 90 degrees at most, which can create conditions for frontal collision or side collision of vehicles at different angles and speeds.

  Panorama of Volvo Car Safety Center

  We believe that knowledge can save lives. The traffic accident investigation team of Volvo Car Company has been investigating more than 40,000 accidents for 40 years, transforming the first-hand investigation data into new research results and applying them to the development and improvement of vehicle models. Since 1970, the accident casualty rate of Volvo’s new cars has been reduced by 50%.

 

  The safety goal of Volvo cars is that by 2020, no one will be killed or injured by driving Volvo cars. In order to achieve this goal, Volvo Car Company is committed to the development of innovative preventive safety technology, because we believe that the safest way is to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible. From the brake assist system to the City Safety system, and then to the collision warning system with full automatic braking and pedestrian detection functions, the above technologies have been applied to Volvo representative vehicles, such as S80L extended version, XC60 and the new S60 which will be unveiled soon. Volvo Cars has continuously introduced breakthrough innovative safety technologies to lead the progress of automobile safety.

  Volvo Car Company’s latest breakthrough safety technology-collision warning system with full automatic braking and pedestrian detection function-will be listed at the same time as the new Volvo S60 in 2010. The system can detect pedestrians in front of the car, and the car will automatically brake to avoid accidents. This new technology aims to help drivers avoid hitting pedestrians when the speed does not exceed 25 kilometers per hour. If the vehicle speed is higher than this value, the system will reduce the vehicle speed during the collision as much as possible to reduce the damage caused by the collision.

  Pedestrian detection system

  Volvo Car Safety Center is currently developing safety systems for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. Through the advanced automatic monitoring of battery status and the effective protection of batteries in the event of a crash with the help of battery packaging technology, electric vehicles can achieve the highest level of comprehensive safety protection. Regardless of the model, fuel or power type, Volvo Cars requires all its cars to meet the same high safety standards.

  Environmental protection concept, care for the green world

  As a responsible corporate citizen, Volvo Cars is also in a leading position in the field of energy conservation and environmental protection. The overall environmental protection concept of Volvo Cars is summarized as "DRIVe noble environmental protection concept", which is the summary of Volvo Cars’ environmental protection blueprint and strategy. At the same time, it is also a model logo, which is used to indicate Volvo’s most environmentally friendly model. The lowercase letter e stands for environment. DRIVe environmental protection concept is Volvo Car’s commitment to sustainable transportation development.

  Volvo’s long-term environmental protection goal is "DRIVe Towards Zero". To achieve this goal, Volvo has launched a number of environmental protection technologies. By the end of 2009, Volvo Car Company has launched seven fuel-efficient DRIVe ultra-low emission models, all of which have the best carbon dioxide emission level in their class. At present, all DRIVe models are equipped with optimized ordinary diesel engines and manual gearboxes, which have ultra-low fuel consumption. These models have also been specially improved to reduce rolling resistance and wind resistance. Among them, C30 DRIVe 1.6-liter diesel vehicle represents the latest environmental protection achievements: carbon dioxide emission per kilometer is only 99 grams, and fuel consumption per 100 kilometers is only 3.8 liters, which is the lowest among its peers.

  Volvo Car Company and energy supplier Vattenfall jointly develop plug-in hybrid vehicles and energy infrastructure. The project will study drivers’ wishes and requirements, determine their driving habits and how they want to charge their cars. Volvo will first launch a mass-produced plug-in hybrid vehicle in 2012. This vehicle combines the pure electric power of the battery with a high-efficiency diesel engine, and can be charged by a household power supply. The total cruising range can reach 1,200 kilometers, the average carbon dioxide emission is 49 grams per kilometer, and the fuel consumption per 100 kilometers is 1.9 liters.

  In September 2009, the prototype of Volvo C30 electric vehicle made its first public appearance. Volvo electric C30 has the same safety, comfort and space as a standard car. But only driven by electricity, the cruising range can reach 150 kilometers. At present, a small number of C30 BEV prototypes have been produced and tested by Volvo Cars.

  Volvo C30 BEV pure electric vehicle

  In addition to external environmental protection, all the fabrics inside Volvo Cars have passed the Oeko-Tex 100 hypoallergenic standard certification of the International Environmental Protection Textile Association, and it is the only automobile manufacturer in the industry that has passed this certification, which reflects the care of Volvo Cars as a luxury brand in environmental protection and health.

  Volvo Car’s unique "nose team" is composed of eight specially selected people with "standard noses", who provide designers with guidance on selecting materials and production technology, especially for automobile interior materials, and finally ensure a healthy and environmentally friendly first-class interior environment for the owners through strict inspection. In addition, cars equipped with New interior materials will be placed under a solar simulator for several hours until the temperature in the compartment reaches 65℃. Then the TVOC level (total volatile organic compounds) and aldehyde content in the car were measured by analytical equipment.

  Luxury quality makes Volvo cars go further.

  Volvo cars have always been known for their durability, which is not only reflected in the manufacture and appearance of products, but also in our choice of materials and the way of manufacturing cars. At the same time, our leading position in safety has directly improved our quality level. In order to let customers enjoy the high quality of luxury cars during the whole period of owning Volvo cars, Volvo Car Company has adopted a set of quality assurance plans. The plan covers the whole value chain from manufacturing, sales to after-sales service.

  In 2007, a Volvo P1800 model produced in 1966 set a new mileage record, exceeding 4.18 million kilometers (2.6 million miles), which can circle the equator about 104 times!

 

  The new modified C30, XC60 and S60, which came out in 2009, all indicate the future design trend of Volvo cars, which are younger, more sporty and bolder. Moreover, the change is not only reflected in the design language, but also in the product characteristics and technological innovation of Volvo cars. In recent years, Volvo has continuously introduced T6 twin-vortex turbocharged engine, GTDi high-efficiency engine, Powershift powershift, 4C active chassis control, AWD all-wheel drive system with Instant Traction and other new technologies, which have effectively improved driving pleasure and maneuverability from the aspects of power, transmission and chassis. Therefore, after personal experience, you will unexpectedly find the driving pleasure and handling beyond the past on the brand-new Volvo car.

  Innovative and enterprising

  In the 82-year history, Volvo Cars has adhered to its own road of innovation, making our life better. Through continuous innovation in design, power, safety and environmental protection, Volvo Cars not only promoted the development and progress of the entire automobile industry, but also realized the promise of providing high-quality life for high-end automobile users.

  Humanities accomplishment

  For the social elites who are innovative and enterprising, Volvo Car’s conspicuous and tasteful image is deeply in line with their humble and pragmatic attitude towards life. As owners of Volvo, they understand the true meaning of life and pay attention to the internal quality of products. Choosing Volvo is not a symbol of showing off wealth, but a pursuit of quality of life. This has also become the connotation that distinguishes Volvo from other luxury brands.

Football originated in China, why can’t it be played in modern times? It has something to do with Zhu Yuanzhang’s prejudice against Cuju.

When it comes to football, I believe many students will think of ancient cuju in China. There is no doubt that football originated from ancient cuju in China. In 2004, FIFA confirmed that cuju in ancient China was the earliest prototype of football. # You don’t know the history of football #

So, when was Cuju invented in ancient China? The "Ju" in Cuju can be traced back to the stone balls in the cultural site of Ding Cun 100,000 years ago. At first, it should be a hunting tool. In the late primitive society, stone balls kicked by feet and hollowed-out pottery balls appeared.

However, it is not known from the development of stone balls to the inventor of Cuju. According to Liu Xiang’s "Bielu", it is said that Cuju was invented by the Yellow Emperor and began to be used in military training. The bow was made of leather and filled with hair.

The earliest accurate and credible written record of Cuju was in the Warring States Policy and Historical Records. In 285 BC, that is, during the Warring States Period, Cuju was recorded as an activity with both military and recreational nature.

When introducing the living conditions of people in Linzi, the capital of Qi State, Qice wrote: "There are 70,000 households in Linzi … which are very rich and real, and all of them are people who play the flute, drum instruments, percussion, playing the piano, fighting cocks, walking dogs, playing six blogs and squatting."

It can be seen that cuju has developed into a popular way of sports in Linzi, the capital of Qi during the Warring States Period.

During the Han Dynasty, Cuju ushered in a period of rapid development. Cuju can be used not only for entertainment and performance, but also for competition and training. It is estimated that many students can’t believe that Cuju will be used for training. This is because Cuju can not only train soldiers’ physical fitness, but also enrich military life.

If Han Dynasty was the first peak of Cuju’s development, then Tang and Song Dynasties was the second peak. After improvement, Cuju started with a solid ball stuffed with hair and became an inflatable ball. Because of the lower cost of football, more ordinary people could afford to play Cuju. With the increase of the number of Cuju, there were teams and norms dedicated to Cuju, and organizations specializing in Cuju competitions appeared in the Song Dynasty.

Having said that, everyone must first think of Gao Qiu, the first master of cuju in the last years of the Northern Song Dynasty, because Song Huizong liked cuju very much when he was the king of Duan, and when Gao Qiu sent something to the palace of Duan, he inadvertently showed a few hands, thus being left behind by Zhao Ji. After Zhao Ji became king, he began to promote Gao Qiu.

During the Tang and Song Dynasties, due to the gradual popularization of cuju, Japan often sent Tang envoys to China at that time, and brought the game of cuju back to Japan. Today, football is still called "cuqiu" in Japanese and Han Wenzhong, which is also influenced by China’s cuju.

Why did China Cuju, which was still at its peak in the Tang and Song Dynasties, fall out of fashion in the Ming and Qing Dynasties? Even after the mid-Qing Dynasty, football turned from export to domestic sales and reappeared in the eyes of China people.

All this stems from an imperial edict of Zhu Yuanzhang. After the establishment of the Ming Dynasty, it was different from the situation that the previous generation used cuju as a means of military training. Zhu Yuanzhang thought that cuju was a sign of being a plaything, because Zhu Yuanzhang had an old rival named Zhang Shicheng, and Zhang Shicheng’s troops liked cuju very much. However, when Zhang Shicheng was at war with Zhu Yuanzhang, it was simply vulnerable. Therefore, Zhu Yuanzhang thought that cuju would not help the improvement of soldiers’ military literacy. Therefore, Zhu Yuanzhang ordered that the Ming army would not be allowed to cuju in the future, and offenders would be punished.

Because this order only prohibits soldiers from playing cuju, but not the people, it actually abandons the function of competition and training, while the people play cuju more for entertainment and viewing.

Therefore, in Ming Dynasty, cuju was still popular among the people, but most of them were women. At that time, cuju was a talent show, just like a brothel woman performing singing and dancing. Although there were several emperors who liked cuju in Ming Dynasty, it was even recorded that the emperor organized eunuchs and maids to play cuju in the palace, but at that time, cuju had developed into a very lightweight thing, and even developed into kicking shuttlecock, which completely deviated from the development of modern football.

During the Qing Dynasty, there were few records about cuju. When the Qing army entered the customs, cuju was banned in the Eight Banners during the Shunzhi period, and cuju was combined with skating, resulting in the movement form of "cuju on the ice".

While the development direction of football in China is crooked, western countries are keen on playing football, and Britain is the first country to popularize modern football.

According to legend, in the 11th century, there was a war between England and Denmark. After the war, when the British were cleaning up the ruins of the war, they found the skull of a Danish invader. They were in resentment, so they kicked the Danish skull with their feet to vent their dissatisfaction. Later, everyone felt that it was very difficult to kick the skull, so some smart people thought of replacing the skull with a cow’s bladder, so there was the origin of modern football.

It can be seen that the birth of modern football itself is full of bloodshed and killing. The initial football match is not just an entertainment, but more like a confrontation.

Generally, two cities take part in a football match. The host throws the football into the air. At the beginning of the game, both sides rush into it, not only shouting, but also running and kicking. Which side can kick the ball to the downtown area of the other side is the winner.

The strong desire to win or lose makes the participants on both sides crazy. In order to win, when the football rushes into the residents’ houses in the middle, the players will rush in and kick around, often leaving the houses in pieces. Therefore, when there is no football match, the people have to close their doors and wait until the end of the game before they dare to leave the house.

Under the strong opposition of the people, the British government had to make a ban, stipulating that football matches can only be played in open spaces, but not in downtown areas, so there was a special football venue.

By 1848, the first written rule of football, Cambridge Rules, was born, which was made between Oxford and Cambridge for a football match. The rule was that only 11 people played in each team, and this rule continued until recently.

In 1862, the world’s first football club was established in Nottinghamshire, England. On October 26th, 1863, the world’s first official football organization, the English Football Association, was established in London, England. This day was also regarded as the birth day of modern football. Since then, with the further improvement of the rules of the game, football has quickly spread around the world.

It can be said that while modern football is flourishing, the ancient cuju in China is evolving into a shuttlecock-kicking sport. Do you think that the decline of modern football in China is related to Zhu Yuanzhang’s ban on military cuju? Welcome to discuss in the comments section below!

Tail teeth originated from the custom of worshipping the land as "teeth" The so-called February is the first tooth, and it will be the "tooth" every second and sixteenth day, and it happens to be the tail tooth on December 16th of the lunar calendar. Under normal circumstances, the worship of the tail teeth usually begins at 4 or 5 pm on December 16. When the tail tooth worships the land Lord, the altar will be set in front of the land Lord. There will also be a altar at the door or back door to worship the foundation owner. Sacrificial offerings include sacrificial rites (chicken, fish and pig), four fruits (four kinds of fruits, among which citrus and apple are necessary), and "spring rolls", that is, moist cakes, which are filled with bean sprouts, carrots, shredded bamboo shoots, shredded pork and coriander, and are wrapped with peanut powder, which tastes delicious.

Laba porridge

When the great cold comes, every household in old Chengdu will eat Laba porridge, which means that the grain is abundant and people and animals are prosperous. Ordinary people will cook residual vegetables, noodles and red beans into porridge on this day. Rich people should add delicious dishes such as meat, chicken and delicacies when cooking porridge. Nowadays, people cook laba porridge with whole grains and peanuts and red dates.

When plum blossoms "bloom alone", it is also a good time to enjoy plum blossoms in a year. In the cold season, going to Du Fu’s thatched cottage to enjoy plums is also a custom that has been preserved in old Chengdu. Not only Du Fu Caotang, but also People’s Park, Cultural Palace, Baihuatan and other places at that time can see plum blossoms in full bloom.
