In the january rating list, Fide has published (https://ratings.fide.com/), former Super GM Wang Yue has been removed due to 2 year inactivity. This is notable, because other chinese players, who were in danger to get removed this month (namely Bu Xiangzhi, Li Chao and Ni Hua), have all made the effort to play the chinese team tournament in November. Wang Yue didn't. Does anyone have insight into the chinese chess scene and knows any background to this? Did we maybe just see a former 2750 player silently retire?
Conflicts between the Jin and Song brought China to a turmoil, leaving many commoners impoverished. Rising from humble origins, Yue Fei leads an highly disciplined army against the Jin. Can victories over the Jin, followed by the Battle of Yancheng overcome treachery by a corrupt official with plots under his deep sleeve?
In this campaign, you will play as the Chinese.
How the hell has she not gotten pregnant during the main story I mean she has sex with Hajime whenever she can and I doubt they have condoms or some birth control it’s insane considering how much she pushes him down.
I’m an ABC and losing my already limited speaking ability in the above mentioned dialect. I’ve only been able to find one video on YT of someone speaking this dialect and was wondering if anyone knew of any learning resources for it. The last person in my family who spoke this was my grandma but she passed away and I have no one to practice with. I’ve felt like a part of me was dying with my gma as she was the only person who would relate me to my ancestors’ culture. I have no real interest in learning Mandarin or even Standard Cantonese. But I desperately want to hold on to the what little of this Yue dialect I have left. Any help would be super awesome.
I will include a link to the only video I could find of someone speaking the Sunwui dialect to help with identification:
Hi everyone, I was wondering how long it took you guys to get all 10 albums for each confidant listed above? I have been playing for over a year and I only have 7/10 for bai qi, 4/10 for li yue, and 1/10 for consort xian. I always participate in the events and still haven’t gotten all the albums I need yet. Has anyone else had this problem? Has anyone here ever gotten all the albums for a least one of the above confidants ? Is so, how long did it take you to get all 10? (Also I think it’s important to note I am VIP 7, imperial princess pingle rank, and have 88 million power). Thanks
I was a blue summer evening too. my body an honor of moonlight
pressing her open mouth to your window. so tell me what else
is left for men to compare women to? we've been rose-stem and
chestnut-peel and sunday afternoons, poured milk and grapevine,
nyseian isles and powdered-sugar doughnuts. find something new
to call me. chalk on the blackboard or your mother's ankles, crossed
on the lawn. and we don't have to agree on everything, darling, but
am I november in chicago? teethmarks in a green apple? or what-
-ever you say, preceding by the possessive. my skin rice flour, queen
anne's lace. turn me into something bite-sized, something tart
on your tongue. maple sugar, my thighs dew-lily, shivering petal.
make me soft and pretty, please. make my back a prayer to be said
at nighttime. make me white pepper and pink salt. empty my chamber
of bullets. take my mouth the land of spices and silk. say I am the first
mild day of march, in saying make it so. take my fight, make it
morning glory. take my rage, make it sweet sand-verbena. bind me
in peony-leaf and vine, fill my throat with green-gold wheat, ripening
fruit. my knees to my chest a silken paper crane. bend my arms back.
open my legs. I am peach and rose-gold and lily-shell; a satin, secret
softness. I was a blue summer evening in your arms, and no one heard
me scream. you put your hand on my mouth and called me new, white
apple blossom. I didn't know that at the time, what you meant was:
flowers don't fight when you rip their bodies from the branches.
