The age of Chinese loess deposits has long been disputed.Biostratigraphical and earlier magnetostratigraphical investigations placed the entire loess formation within the Pleistocene.It now serves as the main entrance to Mia’s Chinese art galleries.A doorway inscription: 履謙漸豐 (“Humility brings prosperity”) appears on the gate.Here is that woman in all her splendor, reconstructed in the imitation Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee, based on the original in her ancient temple atop Athens’ Acropolis—the high place of the city...Four hundred and twenty geometric stone spheres have been found in the vicinity of Neolithic stone circles in Northern Scotland, with 169 coming from Aberdeenshire alone.The new palaeomagnetic measurements reported here on a bore hole section near Lochuan (Shaanxi province) suggest a clearly defined magnetic polarity zonation which extends below the Olduvai subchron.A late Pliocene age of ~2.4 Myr is assigned to the oldest loess sediments measured.
Join us for an introduction to Chinese architecture surveying works in Mia’s collection, including the recently installed wooden gate from Shanxi province.Mount Putuo (Putuoshan) is considered to be one of China’s four sacred Mountains and as such is yearly visited by reverent followers, all here to pay their respects to Guanyin, Goddess of Mercy.This is a great place to come, littered with temples and shrines, and, at a mere 12 square km, is easily navigated and covered in a few relaxing days.“My mother and father went to so much trouble to raise such a beautiful daughter,” she reasoned. Much like my female companion that day, many modern Chinese women who value their autonomy no longer want men to pick up the bill.“By having the chance to date me, you’ve already gotten lucky. These differences in opinion reflect the ever more diverse ways that gender roles are perceived in Chinese society.To satisfy my own curiosity — and to avoid ruining future dates — I asked undergrads at my university who paid the check when they went on dates. Before analyzing the ways that young people split the cost on dates, we must first consider the financial circumstances of Chinese university students, who are generally heavily reliant upon their parents for financial support, and as such have less to spend on luxuries.
