There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, inc

cluding about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend about $1 billion to upda

te and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from repeatedly pointing the nose of the plane dow

n and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg re

fused to say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six

-year development and certification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercia

l service by the end of the summer, but it could be months before the worldwide fleet returns to the air. Boeing said it has completed the software update for the MCAS syst

em and has tested it on 207 flights totaling 360 hours. The US Federal Aviation Administration has not said when its review of the updated software will be completed.

The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of the emergency border funding bill after House Speak

er Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democrati

c lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the show. “Witne

上海419论坛ssing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwrite

r Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers‘ Stadium. At the上海419论坛

packed venue, the then 25-year-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My N

ame, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing tog上海419论坛

ether He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

上海419论坛上海品茶
the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young bands

,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different musi上海419论坛上海品茶

c styles. They come together and contribute to the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribu上海419论坛上海品茶

te both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie bands emerged in the country while developing their own unique styles. The pu

nk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also usher上海419论坛上海品茶

ed in a golden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Inste

ad, we were hungry for rock music and found any possible way to get the latest music from We

stern bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perform onstage because the audiences were

smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”

The company is now home to more than 100 indie band

nds and has expanded into the United States and Britain by signing Western bands. It also

上海419promotes one of the country’s most popular outdoor musical events, the Strawberry M

usic Festival, which was launched in Beijing by the com上海419

pany in 2009 and has since expanded into dozens of Chinese cities.

“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” sa上海419女神会所

ys the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band

in 1990 while he was studying radar engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But t

he most important thing was that when I learned to play上海419

guitar I wanted to explore more beautiful sounds of the instru

ments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

上海419女神会所Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a large fan base in China then with poetic lyrics about youth, romance and friendship, accompanied by guitar.

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerging live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.上海419女神会所

A live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band 上海419女神会所agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to launch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the liv

e bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and ga

ined a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 followers on their

Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the natu

ral charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

Music fans are more diverse in their tastes than they were 10 years ago, he says, enjoying a wide range of styles, young bands and musical influences.

“I’m keen on putting together a group of good-looking young singer-songwriters, guitarists, bassists and drummers to for

m a rock band,” Liu says. “They could compete with the pop idols not only with their looks but also by winning a large follo

wing with their great songs and technique. I’ve been dreaming of this for 10 years, and now with the many ways yo

u can help new talent stand out, such as reality shows, that dream can finally be realized.”
