The place where we practice kungfu deserves special mentioning. It is a little “island” in the heart of the city, Xizhimen. A park with a small river where dragon-shaped boats take passengers to the Summer Palace, is an amazing place with Russian spirit. Beijing is known to be home for many Russians, there is the largest Russian district called Yabaolu with many Russian clothing shops and food restaurants. But this place is something different. Tranquil, peaceful, enchanting, the park is hidden from the eyes of many, showing its true beauty only to those who is in pursue of the miracle. On the opposite side of the wushu training spot there is former Soviet Union Exhibition Center, which was renamed into Beijing Exhibition Center after Soviets’ and China Republic’s relations had come into turbulence. The earliest Russian cuisine restaurant “Moscow” was also placed in this picturesque area. Government officials who took office during that period used to have their lunches and dinners there.
首先是希拉里长期的支持者，女权运动老前辈、说过著名的“没有男人的女人就像没有自行车的鱼一样”的葛罗莉亚・斯坦能(Gloria Steinem)。在HBO的政治脱口秀节目《比尔・马艾实时》(Real Time with Bill Maher)中，当她被主持人马艾问道为什么很多千禧世代女选民倾向于支持桑德斯而非希拉里，斯坦能失口说道：“当你(女性)年轻的时候，你问’男生都在哪儿？’，男生都在伯尼(桑德斯)一边。”她话音未落，身为男性的马艾就指出此话有性别歧视的嫌疑：“如果我说这话，‘(女生支持伯尼是)因为男生都在伯尼一边’，马上就会挨一巴掌。”的确，斯坦能的话听起来似乎暗示年轻女性参与政治只是为了和男生在一起，没有独立思考选择候选人的能力，对女性实是一种侮辱和贬低。
