The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli

 上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.

Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛

issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh

 上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also

prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛

And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be

come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛

But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca

 上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma

jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref

erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛

Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition

 上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.

Differences among political parties, even within o

ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛

For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev

ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信

n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.

 上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J

apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.

ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu

died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛

pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s

 上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.

Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not

accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛

spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the

 上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge

nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.

To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus

ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信

ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma

 上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th

e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi

cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信

Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro

 上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.

Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha

ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信

s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu

 上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q

uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信

As an internationally renowned instrumentalist of the pipa (a plucked string instrum

ent with a fretted fingerboard), Wu Man for decades has spared no effort in promoting the tradit上海夜生活

ional Chinese musical instrument throughout the world. Given her virtuosity and collaborations across disci

plines, she has been nominated several times for the Grammy Award for Best Instru

上海夜生活女神会所mental Soloist Performance (with orchestra) and Best World Music Album. Her performances, with mus

icians from various countries, have captured the hearts of numerous music enthusiasts from around the world.上海夜生活

Wu, who has lived in the United States for the past 29 years, often misses the “good old days,” when she drank tea with her frie

nds by West Lake (in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang province), accompanied by soft pipa tunes.

Born into a family of art in Hangzhou, Wu lived, when she was a little girl, in a compound inhabited by families (of art), whose上海夜生活女神会所

members worked for Peking Opera troupes, song and dance troupes and academies of fine arts. Influenced by her l

iving environment, Wu developed an interest in performing arts during her early childhood.上海夜生活女神会所

In 1977, Wu was admitted to the Central Conservatory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her sco

with many from other localities outside Lanzhou. The rising number of visitors also gave her good financial returns.

“A ticket to the museum costs 36 yuan ($5), and if you book online in advance, you can get a disc上海千花坊品茶微信

ount of 6 yuan,” she said. Despite not being free, the lure of the museum has proved to be enduring. It curre

上海千花坊ntly receives up to 100 visitors every day on average, making it the latest “must-visit site” in Lanzhou.

But breakup museums did not originate in China. In 2006, an artist couple in Croatia came up

with the idea after breaking up and established the world’s first breakup museum. The idea drew many上海千花坊品茶微信

followers, and similar museums sprang up around the world. Many in China also jumped on the bandwagon.

“I think it is a quite new, creative form of economy,” said Dou Xuecheng, a professor wit

上海千花坊h Gansu Agricultural University. “Traditionally in China, love and relationships are not to be expressed or d

isplayed in public, but as our society becomes more diverse, the attitudes of young people are changing.”

Dou said that the museum is a reflection that more people are after spiritual satisfaction.上海千花坊品茶微信

“But such forms of the economy can be short-lived,” Dou said. “

The organizers need to strengthen the content and services in the museums to prolong their life.”上海千花坊

Li Fangfang said that currently, the most important thing is to keep the museum rolling financially.

上海千花坊品茶微信”Even though we have many visitors, we also face high rent and labor costs,” she said. “B
