Xingyue L is equipped with Volvo engine, Changan and Haval announce brand-new SUV, and BBA recalls it.

It is expected to pre-sell Haval in April and release the official map of the new model Haval Red Rabbit.

A few days ago, Great Wall Motor officially released the official map of its brand-new model Haval Red Rabbit. It is planned that the new car will be officially opened for pre-sale in April this year. The appearance of Haval Red Rabbit adopts the brand-new aesthetic design concept of "Tide Awakening" of the Great Wall. The front grille is an iconic large-size hexagon, and the interior adopts a straight waterfall design with chrome-plated decoration. The headlights are irregular in shape, and the daytime running lights and headlights are separated. The D-pillar design of Haval Red Rabbit is more rounded, and a large suspended tail is added, giving people a visual effect of sharp style and movement. It is reported that the design of the new car is inspired by the charge posture maintained by athletes when they start to exert their strength.

The new car is positioned in a compact SUV, with a length of 4450mm and a wheelbase of 2700mm in body size, which is quite satisfactory in its class. This car is based on the global intelligent vehicle platform Lemon Platform, and it is the fourth model mass-produced by this platform. Lemon platform has the characteristics of high flexibility, high performance, high safety and light weight, which can give new cars good advantages in intelligence, performance, safety and space ratio.

At present, the power scheme of the new car has not been announced yet, but we predict that the new car will adopt a combination of 1.5T engine with high and low power and 7DCT wet dual-clutch gearbox. Among them, the high-power version can output the maximum power of 135Kw and the peak torque of 270Nm.

Recently, Geely Automobile announced the latest news of Xingyue L. The new car will come standard with Volvo Drive-E 2.0TD power. The maximum power of the 2.0T engine is 175kW (about 238 HP) and the peak torque is 350 Nm. It is worth mentioning that the Star Yue L is a brand-new SUV based on the CMA super matrix. Compared with the Star Yue on sale, the "L" of the Star Yue L has the meanings of Larger, luxurious and subversive.

In terms of design, the straight waterfall net of Xingyue L is very atmospheric, and the "meter-level full screen" of the interior is also amazing, giving people a refreshing feeling. Although the car is positioned as a compact SUV, in terms of body size, it has reached the standards of many medium-sized SUVs, even much larger than the Jetway X70 PLUS, Buick Angkewei, Tiguan L, Chevrolet Explorer and other models positioned as medium-sized SUVs.

Changan Automobile’s new car release frequency is really fierce in recent two years. Not long ago, Changan Automobile officially released a set of new car preview maps, but the car has strict camouflage. It is reported that the new car belongs to CS series. But judging from the lines of the car body, it is likely to be the third car in the UNI series.

The new car adopts a sharp headlight shape, and the body camouflage sticker is printed with all kinds of hot words in the mouth of young people. Obviously, this car user group will also target young people; The lines on the side of the car body are sharp, especially the layering of the two waistlines on the D-pillar is very strong; In terms of power, it is expected that it will most likely be equipped with Changan Blue Whale NE 1.5T L4 engine and 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Other aspects have not released more information for the time being, and we will continue to pay attention.

Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. and Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. filed a recall plan with the State Administration of Market Supervision according to the requirements of the Regulations on the Management of Defective Automobile Product Recall and the Implementation Measures of the Regulations on the Management of Defective Automobile Product Recall. The recall involved some imported and domestic C-class (platform 205) vehicles, totaling 125,568 vehicles. The reason for the recall is that if the vehicle is idling for a long time under the unfavorable heat dissipation environment, the heat generated by the rectifier bridge diode may not be dissipated in time, and individual diodes may also cause short-circuit failure due to exceeding the maximum working temperature, which leads to the temperature rise of the alternator stator coil, which cannot rule out the fire risk and has potential safety hazards.

Therefore, Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. and Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. will upgrade the engine control unit software for vehicles within the scope of recall through authorized dealers to eliminate potential safety hazards.

Coincidentally, at the time of Mercedes-Benz recall, Audi also announced the recall of domestic A6L, Audi Q3, imported Audi A6 Avant 2.0T and imported Audi A7. The specific production time of vehicles is some domestic A6L 2.0T vehicles produced from April 25th, 2018 to November 24th, 2020, totaling 118,074 vehicles. And some imported A6 Avant 2.0T and A7 2.0T vehicles produced from October 14th, 2019 to November 13th, 2020, totaling 6,724 vehicles.

The reason for the recall is that under certain working conditions when the engine is idling, the imperfect learning function of the camshaft adjuster driving algorithm in the engine control unit may lead to the deviation of the results, which may cause the camshaft not to be adjusted to the correct position, which may lead to the unstable operation of the engine, and in extreme cases, the engine may stop running, posing a safety hazard. FAW-Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd. will entrust Audi authorized dealers to upgrade the engine control unit software for vehicles within the recall range free of charge to eliminate potential safety hazards. There are also two Audi Q3′ s recalled because the pulley in the steering gear may have dimensional deviation, which may lead to the incorrect installation of the circlip during the assembly process.

As if it was agreed, BMW Brilliance Automobile Co., Ltd. also filed a recall plan with the State Administration of Market Supervision. A total of 8,114 X3 and iX3 vehicles with production dates from December 29th, 2020 to January 25th, 2021 were recalled.

The reason is that a rocker switch in the automatic seat belt retractor in the middle of the rear row may be positioned incorrectly due to the assembly error of the vehicle in the production process of the supplier. In case of failure, the inductive locking sensor may not work normally in the seat belt retractor, thus causing the passengers to be unable to be fixed on the seat during emergency braking. BMW Brilliance Automobile Co., Ltd. will check the rear middle seat belt for the affected vehicles free of charge and replace the rear middle seat belt if necessary. I have to say that these three brands deliberately chose to announce the recall plan at the same time. It is really a coup to distract consumers’ attention!

Road planning for itinerant examinations: there is no methodology for "itinerant examinations" to go ashore absolutely.

  (of a performer) hurry from one theatre to another

  In the past few months, Liu Xiaohao couldn’t know his destination accurately. In order to get a regular job, this fresh graduate has taken seven exams since last December. He always knows where to go next when he is informed of the exam, so he is used to buying only tickets for the examination room, regardless of the later trip.

  The most tense time was in the middle and late February of this year. In two weeks, Liu Xiaohao traveled to Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Beijing by high-speed train and plane to take four exams. There are still three exams, so he has to give up because of the time conflict.

  On February 25th, he enrolled in the recruitment of civil servants in Henan, Guangdong and Shandong and the recruitment of Zhejiang Tobacco Company. In the end, he chose the provincial examination in his hometown of Henan.

  In recent years, for many graduates, the attraction of a prepared job is self-evident. Many people will "tour" the whole province or even the whole country to take the civil service examination and various career preparation examinations.

  They are called "patrol examiners" and only when they are successfully admitted can they be considered as "ashore". One candidate said that he applied for 26 career positions in Hunan Province in half a year.

  Because of the large number of applicants for many exams, the price of hotels around the examination room will increase exponentially before the exam. On weekdays, the price of a room just over 100 yuan will become two or three hundred yuan.

  In order to save money, candidates need to book hotels as early as possible. Some people even predicted the scope of the examination room according to past experience before the examination was arranged, and selected different places nearby to book several rooms. If the final arrangement changes, then unsubscribe or transfer the unnecessary rooms.

  When hotel prices really rise, some people will go to the guest house for 70 to 80 yuan a night to make do. Examinee Hu Shu once chose a guest house. Only after checking in did I find that the password lock on the old wooden door of the room had been slightly damaged. She didn’t dare to fall asleep, so she left the bathroom light on all night. On the way out to buy dinner, she was followed by a strange man.

  In the Douban group of "Let’s go ashore for civil servants in the national examination and provincial examination", which was joined by 100,000 people, some netizens posted a message asking what means of transportation should be chosen for the first patrol exam. A candidate who went to Zhejiang for the patrol exam left a message, "The patrol party should be prepared to spend at least 500 yuan and 3,000 yuan for an exam."

  Hu Shu graduated from a university in a coastal city in Shandong last year and has taken more than a dozen exams for civil servants and institutions. Among them, the written part, the qualification review part and the interview part of three exams are crossed. Just after attending the qualification review of the first exam, she received the notice of the third written exam and the second online interview. To this end, she had to travel from the northeast to the southwest of Shandong, between two cities 300 kilometers apart.

  In order to control the cost, she only takes the train. Sometimes, sleeping for seven or eight hours is also beneficial, which can save one night’s accommodation.

  A teacher of a training institution once mentioned in class that he saw an army of patrol exams and took as many recruitment exams as possible for civil servants and institutions across the country. Every year, the provincial exams in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai became their "pre-test simulation" in order to prepare for the final provincial exam in his hometown.

  In 2023, more than 2.5 million people participated in the national examination, setting a record for the number of applicants in the past 10 years. For Liu Xiaohao, a fresh student, taking the civil service examination is only a part of his job search. Besides, he has to take the examination of public institutions.

  The data shows that the number of college graduates in 2023 is expected to be 11.58 million. As a graduate student majoring in economics who is about to graduate from a 211 university in Beijing, Liu Xiaohao started the basic review stage of the civil service examination in the last summer vacation of the university and started his own job search.

  He guarantees at least 12 hours of preparation time every day. Many people around him started taking the online exam in March and April. In order to save time, he finished the course at twice the speed.

  However, none of the seven civil service examinations he took successfully landed.

  He didn’t stop the exam tour. At present, his focus is on the exam tour of branches of China Tobacco, so he went to Zhejiang, Shaanxi, Yunnan and Hunan to take the recruitment exam.

  At the same time, he did not give up other career preparation exams. On the 10th of last month, he received an exam notice from Zhengzhou two days later, when he had just finished an interview in Hangzhou. On the way, he completed an interview with a bank online, made two sets of real-life simulations by printing the admission ticket, and then flew to the examination room in Yunnan.

  He is prepared to work hard until June this year. When he meets a good job opportunity, he will continue to fight for it. He doesn’t want to go to work and regret that he missed the opportunity of better development and better salary because he didn’t try.

  For him, the intensive exam arrangement has become numb. "There are too many exams from small to large." In 2016, when Liu Xiaohao took the college entrance examination, 820,000 people in Henan took the exam with him. "For these (applicants), competition has actually become commonplace."

  A person who collapsed in the examination room

  For the examinees, arranging the itinerary is only the first step. When they go to the examination room, the test is the real beginning. In the written test against time, candidate Sun Yijing will leave the problem until the end. However, when taking part in a provincial examination in Jiangsu, when she skipped a series of questions, she found that she had no questions to do. Later, in an exam in her hometown of Shandong, she was so nervous that she had a double image when reading the test paper, and she kept sweating. As a result, it was the worst exam result in her job search.

  She began to take the exam after graduating from undergraduate course. For the first time, she set off with her family at 6 am and drove to Lianyungang for the exam. Last time she was here, she and her family drove to see the sea.

  That year, she had just passed the judicial examination and was waiting for the results of the postgraduate examination, and she didn’t take the civil service examination to heart. In the examination room, she first learned the specific questions of the civil service examination.

  But at this time, she has strengthened her determination to take the exam. In July of that year, she went to the law firm as an intern and saw the busyness there, as well as the competition and pressure among colleagues. Moreover, her work needs to keep running to courts and procuratorates to meet other people’s time.

  That kind of busyness reminds her of her parents. Since she went to school, her mother has only attended one parent-teacher conference. The question of "Why hasn’t mom come back" runs through her whole childhood.

  Going to a place with a stable work rhythm is a very important consideration in her career planning. She envied her sister who entered the interview after taking the national examination for the first time and went ashore after taking the provincial examination for the second time. She also heard that her brother who gave up his job and concentrated on taking the civil service recruitment examination did not go ashore for five or six years. Children from relatives around them, even when filling in their volunteers in the college entrance examination, began to consider which major is more conducive to the examination of civil servants.

  The worst exam was to take a job that she really liked, working in the prefecture-level city in her hometown. Her body felt the pressure ahead of her heart. One month before preparing for the exam, in a quiet environment, she suddenly heard a noisy "drumming" sound, which was similar to the heartbeat. At first, she just thought there was something wrong with her ears, and she was not diagnosed as "nervous tinnitus" until after the examination.

  Compared with the postgraduate exam, Qin Xue originally thought it was much easier to take the exam.

  In July last year, after the second postgraduate entrance examination failed, she chose a new "track". She entered the interview the first time she took the exam.

  On the interview list, she was the last one. Before she entered the examination room, she collapsed. Before the postgraduate entrance examination, her father would make a special trip to the school to accompany her in the exam, so she didn’t have to worry about oversleeping or forgetting to bring her admission ticket because of carelessness. She took the exam alone. On the first night of arriving in the examination room city, she cried and called home and used up all the tissues in the hotel room.

  On the day of the exam, Qin Xue was so nervous that she vomited the wonton she had for breakfast when she was putting on makeup. Any trouble in the examination room will make her think more, and even the loud voice of the boys in the examination room will make her more and more nervous.

  The last question, which she had never prepared, escaped from the crowd waiting at the door before she left the examination room and waited for the interview scores to be posted. She didn’t pass the interview, and this failure made her decadent at home for half a month.

  Find the optimal solution

  For examiners, popularity is not necessarily the best choice. Some people regard their hometown or a city that is convenient to go home as the destination of the exam tour, and they are no longer blindly pursuing first-tier cities.

  Sun Yijing doesn’t want to be too far from home. She has been to many cities during the tour, but those places have hardly brought her freshness. Nowadays, online shopping can meet most of her living needs, while urban buildings are similar, "they all look the same" and "KFC is everywhere".

  She also took the exam in Beijing, but she didn’t witness the prosperity of the capital. On the way to the hotel, she saw an old building with dripping pipes and broken buildings.

  Liu Xiaohao gave up a good job in Beijing at the beginning of this year, focusing on the examination tour in Zhengzhou and second-tier cities with good development potential. The job he gave up had an annual salary of 200,000 yuan and a Beijing hukou, but he clearly knew that his ability and family conditions could not support him to settle down in Beijing.

  Qin Xue will still focus on jobs in first-tier cities. She wants to pursue further studies, and the local college education resources are her important consideration.

  Qin Xue always wanted to be a lawyer before her sophomore summer vacation. A summer camp to visit local law firms, courts and procuratorates changed her job search direction. In a well-known law firm, she found that luxury offices with high-rise buildings and beautiful rivers in TV dramas are not easily owned by ordinary people. More lawyers only have one desk, and rows of green plants add some life to the cubicle. She thought that in the bustling metropolis, herself on that small table was too insignificant.

  Graduated from a famous university in the field of law, she only has a bachelor’s degree and has no rich internship experience in law firms and companies. She has no confidence in her competitiveness. "On the contrary, taking exams all the time can give me a little sense of stability."

  Qin Xue occasionally thinks that if the postgraduate entrance examination is successful, he can better plan social practice and internship, make up for his previous regrets, and maybe have more choices in employment. But at present, for her, "Kao Gong is an optimal solution".

  A victory

  In the civil service examination, there is no methodology of absolute landing.

  In the last interview without a leading group that she participated in in the Qin Xue Tour Examination, she fought a "defensive battle".

  This interview form requires candidates to discuss and cooperate with others in a specific situation at the same time, and finally make the best plan to deal with the incident. Who can fully display individual talents and personality characteristics in a group of people will often stand out.

  She ranked first in the written test, but for the sake of insurance, she didn’t show too much enthusiasm. She was worried that it would cause the examiner’s dissatisfaction. And Qin Xue, a classmate in an interview class, encountered another complicated situation. In the group, they appeared the role of "lever essence", while her classmates appeared as mediators, and stood up several times to solve the contradictions in the group, and finally won the first place in the interview.

  After entering the interview for the fourth time, compared with the first time, Qin Xue was no longer afraid of being nervous. Every time she took the exam, she clearly remembered the real tension. Only by remembering this feeling can she learn how to overcome it.

  After landing as a destination, candidates can only constantly improve their ability to get close to infinity.

  Sun Yijing’s 13 rounds of civil service examinations have gone through her undergraduate and graduate career for five years. During graduate school, she will also force herself to take part in some competitions to exercise her interview ability. In the last few interviews, her scores have been rising steadily.

  Through the examination tour again and again, she will remember every reflection in the memo: speak slowly, answer the work of contacting the grassroots, and say "first, second and third" will be more logical than "first, second and last" … … She is no longer the person who was called "timid as a mouse" by the training class teacher when she first started the interview.

  Hu Shu continued to patrol the exam, and she expressed her confusion about taking the exam and applying for a job in Douban’s "Association of Mutual Comfort after Failure in the Exam" and "University Regrets Studying Accounting" groups. After more than 10 exams, she stopped blindly taking exams and made it clear that she would not choose some places.

  Last month, after a year’s tour, Qin Xue finally landed in Guangdong Province. Recalling the first time she signed up for the public examination interview class was a rare happy time after her graduation.

  During the two-year postgraduate exam, she closed her circle of friends and cut off unnecessary contact with the outside world. In the interview class, she met someone who resigned after working for several years to take the exam. A person who failed in the postgraduate entrance examination like her.

  Because the postgraduate entrance examination has been unemployed, Qin Xue often has age anxiety. I don’t know that there are such a group of people. Looking at those who are older than themselves and have experienced more social experience, they look both light and serious. She feels that she has broadened her horizons and is still young, and her life should not be trapped by one exam after another.

  At that time, the girl who shared a room with her was going to study abroad to improve her academic qualifications, and she continued to take the civil service exam after she came back. Qin Xue thought, if everyone finally chooses this road, there is nothing wrong with walking first.

Beijing announced that the proportion of drugs with bimonthly effectiveness in medical reform dropped by nearly 7%.

Since the implementation of the comprehensive reform of Beijing medicine separation on April 8, it has attracted much attention from all walks of life. On June 9, the Beijing Municipal Health Planning Commission held a symposium on medical reform. The health sector learned from the symposium that in the past two months, the total drugs in major hospitals in Beijing accounted for 36.6%, a decrease of 6.87 percentage points compared with the same period last year. Gao Xiaojun, spokesman of the Beijing Municipal Health Planning Commission, said that there was no general decline in the income of large hospitals after the start of medical reform in Beijing. "If the medical reform makes the hospital’s income drop, then it means that the reform policy design is a failure." Gao Xiaojun said.

The total number of outpatients in medical institutions in Beijing decreased.

The medical reform made it clear that public medical institutions in Beijing canceled drug addition (excluding Chinese medicine drinks), registration fees and medical treatment fees, and set up medical service fees, with the goal of getting rid of medicine to supplement medicine. From April 8 to June 2, Beijing monitored the progress of medical reform in 373 tertiary and secondary hospitals, some first-class hospitals and community health service institutions. It shows that in the past two months, the total number of outpatient and emergency services in monitoring units has exceeded 20 million, which is 8.46% lower than the same period of last year. The total number of outpatient and emergency services in tertiary hospitals has decreased by 12.58%, that in secondary hospitals has decreased by 4.54%, and that in primary hospitals and community health service institutions has increased by 7.6% compared with the same period of last year.

The data shows that the number of visits to secondary and tertiary hospitals in Beijing has decreased correspondingly, while the number of visits to primary hospitals and community health service institutions has increased. The relevant person in charge of the Beijing Municipal Health Planning Commission said that since the reform, the situation of graded diagnosis and treatment in Beijing has gradually emerged.

Compared with the same period of last year, the number of outpatients in monitoring medical institutions decreased by 7.58%. Among them, the number of visits by deputy chief physicians decreased by 9.3%, the number of visits by chief physicians decreased by 20.8%, and the number of visits by well-known experts decreased by 14.8%. This shows that the problem of difficulty in seeing experts generally tends to be alleviated.

In terms of the number of discharged patients, the total number of discharged patients in the monitoring unit was 510,000, a decrease of 0.24% compared with the same period of last year. This data has not changed much compared with the same period of last year. Gao Xiaojun believes that the number of discharged patients has not changed much, indicating that the medical reform has not affected the diagnosis and treatment of hospitalized patients.

Drug procurement is one of the important contents in this medical reform. By June 7th, the cumulative expenditure of Beijing Pharmaceutical Sunshine Procurement was 10.27 billion yuan, saving 842 million yuan and 8.2%.

After the medical reform, has the medical expenses been effectively controlled? According to the data provided by the relevant person in charge of the Beijing Municipal Health Planning Commission, medical expenses are generally stable. Compared with the same period of last year, the average drug cost of outpatient and emergency departments in monitoring units decreased by 6.38%. Since the reform, the average drug cost of outpatient and emergency departments has shown a gradual decrease trend.

The proportion of drugs decreased by nearly 7%, and the hospital income did not drop.

This medical reform canceled the drug addition, aiming at changing the income structure of medical institutions. The data shows that in the two months after the medical reform, the proportion of drugs in monitoring units was 36.6%, a decrease of 6.87 percentage points compared with the same period last year. The proportion of drugs in tertiary hospitals was 33.84%, a decrease of 7.31 percentage points compared with the same period of last year; The proportion of drugs in secondary hospitals was 40.07%, a decrease of 7.14 percentage points compared with the same period last year. The proportion of first-class and community drugs was 72.53%, which was 4.06 percentage points lower than the same period of last year. The proportion of discharged drugs in monitoring units was 26.29%, a decrease of 6.05 percentage points compared with the same period of last year.

At the symposium, individual hospitals mentioned that the total income of hospitals decreased by nearly 20% after the reform. Gao Xiaojun believes that the reform requires medical institutions to carry out refined management, thus improving their operational capabilities. "There is no general decline in the income of large hospitals in Beijing." Gao Xiaojun stressed.

Encourage large hospitals to independently set up comprehensive outpatient clinics for geriatric diseases.

At present, major hospitals in Beijing have shut down simple prescription clinics one after another, and some patients feel that it is inconvenient to seek medical treatment.

In this regard, Liu Ying, deputy director of the Medical Administration Department of the Beijing Municipal Health Planning Commission, believes that government departments hope that the functional orientation of tertiary hospitals is to diagnose and treat difficult and severe diseases, rather than to deal with common diseases and frequently-occurring diseases. Only by strengthening the grass-roots units can patients truly appreciate the convenience of seeking medical treatment. "Large hospitals can independently set up comprehensive outpatient clinics for geriatrics according to the development of their own disciplines to provide services for patients." Liu Ying said.

"Doctors no longer work for pharmaceutical companies"

Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital is the only third-class hospital specializing in obstetrics and gynecology in Beijing. As a hospital with a small amount of drugs, Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital has benefited greatly from this round of medical reform. According to Chen Jing, secretary of the Party Committee of the hospital, the income of the hospital has been slightly improved by canceling the registration fee and medical treatment fee and setting up the medical service fee. Outpatient medical income increased by 9.68% from 54.14 million yuan in May 2016 to 59.38 million yuan in May 2017; In-patient medical income increased by 9.73% from 24.24 million yuan in May 2016 to 26.6 million yuan in May 2017.

It is worth mentioning that, while the income of Beijing Maternity Hospital has increased, the increase in the average outpatient expenses has slowed down, which is due to the fact that the hospital has promoted and reduced the burden on patients after canceling the drug addition.

This round of medical reform emphasizes that medical institutions should strengthen refined management. Following the "baton" of reform, Beijing Maternity Hospital adopted a new version of performance distribution scheme on June 1, improving internal performance appraisal and establishing a performance appraisal distribution mechanism suitable for medical reform.

Chen Jing said that the new performance appraisal index system includes four dimensions: work quality, work efficiency, cost control and annual special projects. "Doctors are no longer people who work for pharmaceutical companies, but earn money by trying to improve their services."

A hundred years after the end of World War I: the grief of the war has not disappeared, and the international community urges to learn from history.

  Zhongxin. com, November 11 (Zhang Aijing) November 11 is the centenary of the end of the First World War. One hundred years ago today, representatives of the German government and the Allies signed an armistice agreement in Compiè ne, France, thus ending the First World War.

  This unprecedented war has brought profound disasters to mankind and profoundly affected the historical development of Europe and even the world. On the centenary of the end of World War I, looking back at history and commemorating the "armistice" is not only to mourn Qian Qian’s life lost in the war, but also to impress the present and future generations that war is cruel and peace is priceless.

  On August 25, 2018, hundreds of volunteers from 18 countries gathered in Verdun, France, put on the uniforms of soldiers in World War I and re-enacted the scene of the Battle of Verdun as one of a series of activities to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I.

  A brief history of the First World War

  At the end of 19th century and the beginning of 1920s, western imperialist countries launched fierce struggles around the struggle for world hegemony and colonies, and the contradictions among European powers were complicated.

  Before World War I, major European countries formed two potentially hostile alliances, Germany and Austria-Hungary on one side, France, Britain and Russia on the other. On June 28th, 1914, Archduke Ferdinand of Austro-Hungarian Empire was assassinated in Sarajevo, which triggered a series of reactions and eventually ignited a full-scale war between the two alliances — — The first world war.

  After the war, the allies (Germany, Austria-Hungary, etc.) and the allies (France, Britain, Russia, etc.) fought on the European battlefield. But soon, the war went beyond the scope of Europe and involved the whole world in the whirlpool of war.

  World War I lasted more than four years, and finally ended in the defeat of the Allies. During the war, wars spread all over Europe, Asia and Africa, more than 30 countries and regions with a population of about 1.5 billion were involved in the war, 65 million people participated in the war, and the number of casualties exceeded 30 million, resulting in economic losses of about 170 billion US dollars.

  On November 2, 2018, in Maize, Belgium, the local botanical garden used thousands of poppies made of red bottle caps to pose as pigeons.

  Change the historical trajectory of the world

  World War I brought great disasters to mankind and had a profound impact on world history.

  After the war, the balance of power among imperialist countries changed. Germany was defeated and ceded land for compensation; The Austro-Hungarian Empire completely collapsed; Although Britain and France won, they were weakened and weakened in the war. The United States made huge profits in the war and became an economic power.

  On the other hand, through the Paris Peace Conference and the Washington Conference, the imperialist powers established the "Versailles-Washington System" and established the ruling order in Europe, West Asia, Africa, East Asia and the Pacific.

  However, this new system used to carve up the world did not eliminate the fundamental contradiction between imperialist countries, but was broken with the rise of fascism in Germany, Italy and Japan. Only 20 years after the end of World War I, World War II broke out.

  On November 6, 2018, in London, England, thousands of torches were lit around the Tower of London to welcome the centenary of the armistice in the First World War and to commemorate the fallen soldiers.

  Many countries commemorate the centenary of armistice.

  From 1918 to 2018, it has been a hundred years since the end of World War I. A century of history has given this year’s Armistice Day more commemorative significance.

  Recently, with the approach of November 11th, many countries have held different forms of commemorative activities. In Maize, Belgium, the local botanical garden made "poppies" with thousands of red bottle caps and used them to pose as doves of peace. In London, England, thousands of torches were lit around the famous Tower of London to commemorate the fallen soldiers.

  In France, French President Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May visited Albert, a town in northern France, on the 9th to mourn the officers and men killed in the Battle of the Somme in World War I.. On the 10th, Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the Compiè ne Forest, north of Paris, and visited the train carriages that signed the armistice agreement a hundred years ago.

  The official week-long commemoration in France will reach its climax on the 11th. Leaders of about 70 countries, including the United States, Russia, Germany and Britain, will gather in Paris to attend the centenary of the end of World War I and the peace forum.

  Reflection on war and peace are priceless.

  World War I has become history, but the discussion on World War I has not ended. On the centenary of the end of World War I, the French ambassador to Japan and the German ambassador to Japan also published articles together, reflecting on the history of the war and reviewing the post-war reconciliation process between France and Germany.

  According to the article, the First World War spread to most parts of the world, and many continents ignited wars. For Europeans who lost their loved ones, this war is a terrible tragedy. The long war devoured the population and economic strength of Europe. However, the end of World War I did not bring about permanent peace. Twenty years later, a more tragic war broke out again, which claimed more lives.

  "France and Germany understand the suffering and cost of war. In order not to repeat past mistakes, the two countries are committed to developing close and friendly relations." Ambassador France and Germany said in the article.

  Remembering the painful lessons of history is for mankind to enjoy a peaceful and beautiful future. In today’s world, there are still countless people suffering from war. The international community should draw profound lessons from history, cherish and safeguard the hard-won peace situation, persist in resolving international disputes through dialogue and consultation, strengthen and improve global governance, and safeguard lasting world peace.

  A hundred years after the end of World War I, people put poppies on their chests to mourn the soldiers killed in World War I and remember those who died in the war. And this "little red flower" that has passed through a hundred years is constantly reminding people that war is cruel and peace is priceless!
