Volvo is really a luxury brand for its quality and safety.

First of all, the quality of Volvo is good. I think the real owner has the most say. After a cursory look at the real owner’s answer below this question, I think I don’t need to repeat the answer. In short, I want to buy a car and go for a test drive first.

Let me briefly talk about some opinions about the rumors of poor quality.

First of all, it was mentioned that various votators on social media touted Volvo’s high safety, thus questioning exaggeration. There is no denying that Volvo can’t get away with it every time, but the root cause of many cases is that under a certain accident base, the number of times Volvo didn’t suffer too much damage in actual collisions must be better than other brands, so there will be so many cases. If it is said that touting one’s own advantages will also attract criticism, then I think the problem may not lie in Volvo products, but in people’s hearts.

Secondly, Volvo was under Ford in the past few years, and the problem of gearbox tuning has been criticized, which persuaded a group of car buyers. However, this problem has been well solved since Volvo changed the Aisin gearbox, and now Volvo’s power system is still very reliable.

Let’s take a look at Volvo’s new car quality ranking in recent years. Let’s first take a look at what this J.D.Power is. J.D. Power’s research is famous for its independence and objectivity, and it is one of the most professional and authoritative market research companies in the world. At the same time, J.D. Power has gained high recognition in the global industrial and commercial circles in terms of automobile customer satisfaction index, and its investigation and research strength in the global and China domestic industries is second to none.

In 2010, the first year that Volvo was bought by Geely, Volvo’s C70 was rated as the best compact luxury sports car by J.D.Power. Then in 2014,
get away
) also ranked first in the segment list of medium-sized luxury SUVs announced by J.D.Power. In the same year, Volvo pressed BBA to rank second in the quality list of J.D.Power luxury brands with the score of "45 cars per 100 cars", second only to Porsche.

Looking at the China Quality Research Report published by J.D.Power in 2021, Volvo ranks in the top three, second only to Hehe, which shows that Volvo has been doing this piece of quality with heart.

Finally, we talked recently about the XC40 pure electric ice-breaking experiment conducted by Volvo a few days ago. Although there may be moisture, we have to say that if you pull some new electric assembly cars to freeze at MINUS 20 or 30 degrees, can you drive them out or not? The XC40 pure electric energy frozen for 48 hours can show that Volvo not only passed the quality of oil cars, but also grasped the quality of trams in the process of electrification development.

In the final analysis, it is impossible for Volvo to have no quality problems at all, but most of them are harmless minor problems, which is one of the reasons why Volvo’s repurchase rate has been relatively high. Finally, I think non-car owners don’t have to worry about the quality of Volvo, but prospective car owners can buy it with confidence.

From the government-led to the main scientific and technological investment of enterprises, the innovation power is surging.

  Investment of R&D funds from 1953 to 2017

  Sharp tools make good work. Investment in science and technology is the necessary condition and basic guarantee for scientific and technological progress. Since the founding of New China 70 years ago, China has gradually established a national science and technology investment system that adapts to the characteristics of the socialist market economy system.

  "The continuous improvement of the national science and technology investment system and the sustained and rapid growth of research and development (R&D) funds have stimulated the vitality of scientific and technological innovation in the whole society and strongly supported the country’s scientific and technological progress and rapid and stable economic and social development." Zhu Yingchun, deputy director of the Institute of Science and Technology Statistics and Analysis of the China Academy of Science and Technology Development Strategy, said in an interview with the Science and Technology Daily reporter.

  A historic breakthrough was achieved in the scale and intensity of R&D funds.

  The R&D expenditure of the whole society is an important component of the national (regional) investment in science and technology, an important indicator to measure the national (regional) investment in science and technology, and an important indicator to observe and analyze the national (regional) scientific and technological development strength and competitiveness.

  Since the founding of New China, especially since the reform and opening up, with the promulgation and implementation of various national economic policies and science and technology policies and the enhancement of the country’s comprehensive national strength, the investment in science and technology in the whole society has increased rapidly, and the scale and intensity of R&D funds have achieved a historic breakthrough.

  Data from the National Bureau of Statistics show that in 2018, China’s R&D expenditure reached 1,967.79 billion yuan, 123 times that of 1991, from 1991— In 2018, the average annual growth rate was 19.5%, far exceeding the average annual growth rate of GDP at current prices in the same period.

  At the same time, the investment intensity of R&D funds has hit record highs, reaching 2% for the first time in 2013 and 2.19% in 2018, exceeding the average level of the 15 EU countries. According to the exchange rate, China has become the second largest R&D investment country in the world after the United States, providing a strong financial guarantee for the development of science and technology.

  China’s national financial expenditure on science and technology increased from 60 million yuan in 1953 to 951.82 billion yuan in 2018. 2005— In 2010, the national fiscal expenditure on science and technology grew fastest, with an average annual growth rate of more than 20%. In 2011, the growth rate began to decline, and in 2018, it increased by 13.5% over the previous year, setting a record high since 2013.

  "The national financial expenditure on science and technology has played a key role in driving the whole society’s R&D investment and leading the national strategic orientation, providing a strong guarantee for scientific and technological innovation." Zhu Yingchun pointed out.

  In Zhu Yingchun’s view, the investment in science and technology has increased rapidly, and the scale and intensity of R&D funds have achieved a historic breakthrough, which is in line with the Outline of the National Medium-and Long-term Science and Technology Development Plan (2006— The promulgation and implementation of "2020)", especially since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, various departments and localities have taken active measures, and the whole society has formed a consensus on attaching importance to and supporting innovation.

  From different regions, the performance of scientific and technological investment in some places is eye-catching. In 2017, the fiscal expenditure on science and technology in seven regions including Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shanghai exceeded 20 billion yuan. The local fiscal expenditure on science and technology in 11 provinces (cities) accounted for more than 2% of the local fiscal expenditure, and Guangdong, Shanghai and Beijing all exceeded 5%.

  It is worth mentioning that in 2018, the number of regions with R&D investment intensity greater than 2% increased to 11, among which the R&D investment intensity in Beijing reached a record high of 6.17%.

  Enterprises become the main force supporting the growth of R&D investment.

  Since the reform and opening up, China has actively guided other social capitals to increase their support for innovation through direct and indirect financial investment. Enterprise funds have gradually become an important source of funds for the whole society to invest in R&D funds.

  "In recent years, the source structure of R&D funds has been further optimized, and the dominant position of enterprise innovation has been further highlighted. The proportion of corporate funds in R&D funds increased from 60.1% in 2003 to 76.5% in 2017. " Zhu Yingchun believes that this is mainly due to the improvement and implementation of the R&D expenses plus deduction policy, the tax relief policy for high-tech enterprises and the accelerated depreciation policy for fixed assets, which greatly mobilized the enthusiasm of enterprises for R&D activities. As the main body of technological innovation, enterprises have become the main force supporting the growth of R&D investment in China in recent years.

  Enterprises are not only the main body of investment in R&D funds, but also the main body of implementation. From the perspective of expenditure structure, the proportion of R&D expenditure of Chinese enterprises in the total social R&D expenditure has increased from about 60.0% in 2000 to 77.4% in 2018.

  According to statistics, in 2017, the number of enterprises enjoying R&D expenses plus tax reduction and exemption for industries above designated size and tax reduction and exemption for high-tech enterprises reached 24,400 and 24,200 respectively, 3.3 times and 3.5 times that of 2009 respectively, and the amount of tax reduction and exemption reached 57 billion yuan and 106.2 billion yuan respectively, which played a positive role in encouraging and guiding enterprises to carry out R&D activities.

  In 2018, the basic research funds broke through the 100 billion yuan mark for the first time.

  Data from the Statistical Bulletin of National Science and Technology Investment in 2018 (hereinafter referred to as the Bulletin) show that in 2018, China invested a total of 1,967.79 billion yuan in R&D, an increase of 207.18 billion yuan or 11.8% over the previous year. Among them, the basic research funds exceeded 100 billion yuan for the first time, reaching 109.04 billion yuan, keeping pace with the investment in research and development.

  Li Yin, a statistician of the Department of Social Sciences and Literature of the National Bureau of Statistics, explained that the funds for basic research exceeded 100 billion yuan, and all three subjects achieved rapid growth. The funds for basic research in institutions of higher learning, government-owned research institutions and enterprises were 58.99 billion yuan, 42.31 billion yuan and 3.35 billion yuan respectively, up by 11.1%, 10.1% and 15.7% respectively over the previous year. Among them, colleges and universities contribute 51.1% to the growth of basic research funds in the whole society, and they are the main bodies to carry out basic research.

  According to Lv Wei, a researcher in the Innovation and Development Research Department of the State Council Development Research Center, the investment in basic research in China has been increasing continuously in recent years, which is not only related to the state’s attention, but also an inevitable requirement for the development of technological innovation capability to the stage of "three runs coexist". The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposed that we should aim at the forefront of world science and technology, strengthen basic research, and achieve a major breakthrough in forward-looking basic research and leading original achievements.

  Over the past 70 years, China has made remarkable progress in science and technology investment. "However, it should still be noted that compared with the goal of deepening the supply-side structural reform and building a world science and technology power, the investment intensity of R&D funds in China needs to be rapidly improved." Zhu Yingchun pointed out.

  Judging from the cumulative investment, there is still a big gap between the total investment of R&D funds in China and the United States and Japan since 1991. Science and technology investment has a strong cyclical accumulation effect, and the appearance of scientific and technological innovation effect depends on long-term investment and continuous accumulation. When the innovation ability changes from "tracking, paralleling and leading" to "paralleling" and "leading", it still needs the support of a lot of scientific and technological investment to achieve key core technological breakthroughs.

  At the same time, problems such as unbalanced investment structure of R&D funds have yet to be solved. For example, the single source of funds for basic research. The proportion of basic research funds in China has been around 5% for a long time, which is lower than 15% in developed countries & mdash; The general level of 20%; Basic research is highly dependent on the central financial input, and local and enterprises have insufficient investment in basic research.

  In this regard, Zhu Yingchun suggested that in the future, we should speed up the construction of a diversified investment system, strengthen the comprehensive design of fiscal, taxation, financial and other policies, form an organic policy system, and further guide venture capital, charitable donations, and universities’ own funds to invest in R&D activities.

The initial heart of the new era "Awesome, My Country"

Editor’s note:

  The documentary film Awesome, My Country records the super projects such as China Bridge, China Road, China Car, China Port and China Net, and shows the landmark scientific research achievements that lead people to a new era, such as the largest radio telescope FAST in human history, the world’s largest offshore drilling platform "Blue Whale 2", the research and development of maglev train and 5G technology.

  The young post-90s and post-00s, as a "powerful generation", will witness and build a socialist modernization power in the next 30 years. "China Youth Daily" invited a group of college students to write about the feelings of watching "Awesome, My Country" and write down their initial feelings in the new era.

  (This edition is supported by China University Media Alliance)


Faster, how can I slow down?

Xu Jingran, 2017 graduate student of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

  "What can I do?" I often ask myself this question, but after I went to college, the frequency of asking myself increased again. When I watched "Awesome, My Country" in the cinema, I was half proud and half nervous, as if I had pulled out some thoughts, lowered my head from a height, leaned over to examine and even asked myself: "What can I do? What can I do for this country and society? "

  The film shows China’s brilliant achievements in scientific and technological development, economic construction, national defense construction, environmental protection, poverty alleviation, internal affairs and diplomacy since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. For me, the most inspiring thing in the film is the display of a series of major construction projects and scientific and technological achievements in China in recent years: the world’s largest radio astronomical telescope "FAST", the largest offshore drilling platform "Blue Whale 2", the most advanced quantum communication satellite "Mozi", the high-speed railway "Fuxing" with a speed of up to 350 kilometers per hour, and Airbus. …

  This makes me feel excited and scared: I am excited to board a great ship of the times, but I am afraid whether I can make a little contribution to this great ship. No one asked me to do anything, but I think it is a kind of responsibility, a kind of self-questioning, self-encouragement, self-alarm and self-reflection derived from "being proud".

  Soon after school started, I got together with a senior sister. When chatting, she brushed the mobile phone news, and her expression suddenly collapsed. "Teacher Nan Rendong died, and I interviewed him." The atmosphere suddenly cooled down and we ended the party hastily. At that time, I still couldn’t understand the complicated feelings of my senior sisters. These scientists seemed to be very far away from me, just a name.

  Later, I visited the two bombs and one satellite memorial hall and the innovation exhibition of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. I listened to stories such as "Mr. Turbulence can’t get away". I watched the WeChat public platform "Voice of Chinese Academy of Sciences" and pushed the latest scientific research achievements of scientists and technicians every day: the dark matter particle detection satellite "Wukong", the world’s first cloned monkey, the 11-bit cloud superconducting quantum computing platform, and the world’s first "chorea" gene pig & HELIP; … New discoveries and progress emerge one after another.

  I took classes with academicians and people whose names have been seen in textbooks. My teachers are meticulous academically and love students as much as children in life; My classmates are serious and lovely. In the class of dialectics of nature, the classroom presentations submitted by everyone are "Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Uplift and Its Influence", "The Mystery of Solar Neutrino Absence" and "The Loss of Mathematical Uncertainty — — Godel’s great discovery "and so on are" shivering "topics. This makes me feel that I am so close to science that science and scientists are alive by my side.

  Everyone in this school is different, but what they have in common is "working very hard". Whenever, they are rushing to the next thing to do. A biology teacher once said, "Doing scientific research is like washing clothes in the dark. You can’t see the real-time progress of others’ washing, so you should keep washing, try your best to wash, and you can’t stop until the light comes on."

  Whenever I see the persistence in these people’s eyes, I will tell myself, "How can you slow down if you are faster?" History will only care for the determined, the enterprising and the fighters, and will not wait for the hesitant, the lazy and the fearful.

  After watching the movie, any China people will strongly feel their sense of identity, belonging, security and pride in their motherland. My friends, study astronomy, ocean, geology, biology, artificial intelligence … … Frankly speaking, the first year of graduate students is like a screw. What you can do is to drill and tighten it.

  We are scattered in the basic unit of scientific research — — The 114 research institutes in China insist on facing the major international frontiers, facing the national strategic needs and facing the main battlefield of the national economy, and writing scientific and technological achievements on the land of the motherland. Starting from basic scientific research, we should explore things close to the truth, find ways to make life happier, and break the status quo to meet more possibilities.

  I have no doubt that there will be future scientists among my friends, which makes me a little envious of not studying science and engineering anymore. I study science communication, and I am very satisfied that I can call myself half a scientist.

  Walking on the path to the classroom, thinking about the time allocated to each academic task, I think, I am willing to be a purely practical person. "This era is too good, you have to work hard, you can’t be unworthy of this era."

Dreams are like a seed.

Duan Jingwen, a 2016 undergraduate of Nankai University.

  Recently, I went to the cinema to watch Awesome, My Country. Before the movie started, an old woman in a wheelchair was pushed into the cinema and sat next to me. She has white hair and trembling legs, and her face is covered with wrinkles and age spots left by years. As the film story unfolded, the tears on grandma’s face flashed in the dim light, and the crutch trembled.

  Many people may feel a little confused after watching "Amazing, My Country": "How big is the gap between national strength and individual happiness? How close will national prosperity be to everyone? " At this moment, my grandmother’s tears answered me. Probably only those who have experienced the history wash can understand what the power of this country really means.

  "At that time, I walked from our home to Yunnan for many days. It was a bus and a train. Zhengzhou stopped for a long time and Zhuzhou rested for a night. I also sent some big cakes to satisfy my hunger … …” On the plane to Kunming to see his comrades-in-arms, Grandpa slowly told the story of going to the army that year. Now, the worrying "many days" has been shortened to three hours on the plane, and many long hardships have been replaced by convenient high-speed trains.

  Undoubtedly, high-speed rail has become a new business card for China, which has brought us closer to our hometown. In Spring Festival travel rush, the high-speed trains lined up on the track carry thousands of homesick hearts like bullets on standby, allowing homesick people to cross the north, south, east and west, and come and go freely without being trapped by homesickness.

  Last year, when I went to Wuhan by train, I crossed the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge. This bridge, which was completed in 1957, witnessed the Yangtze River water rolling eastward, taking away the decline of the nation and bringing about the strength of the country. In addition to the Yangtze River, China Bridge also stands on the vast sea, among the steep mountains, and at the junction of national history and future. From then on, it is no longer difficult for Shu Dao to go to the sky, and the country has the ability to let people go out of places where only birds used to fly out.

  When I saw my hometown, a county-level city also has seven expressways, I really felt that the strength of the country is closely related to my personal life, and I can proudly say, "My country is really powerful!"

  "Awesome, My Country" shows us many achievements made by the country since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. The country is no longer a rose with only fragrance but no thorns in Lao She’s Four Generations under One roof, and every citizen no longer needs to use silence to cover up his grief over national subjugation like Qi Ruixuan. Festive scenery does not treat each other, Sangtian blue sea needs to be changed in an instant, looking back at history, the predecessors have gone through thousands of difficulties to make China stand in the east of the world again; Looking forward to the future, a better life depends on our common struggle and common achievement.

  A dream is like a seed. If everyone in China can plant it in his heart and take good care of it, the Chinese dream will come true when all the seeds take root, sprout, blossom and bear fruit.

"Powerful country generation" has a long way to go.

Zhai Yujie, a 2015 undergraduate of Southwest University.

  "In the wind and rain, the voyage is magnificent, thousands of miles away in Wan Li, the sun is in my heart, my dream shines ahead, and your faith ignites courage … …” Accompanied by soothing and inspirational music, my heart repeatedly replayed "Awesome, My Country".

  In the form of documentary, the film presents the development achievements of the motherland on the big screen, pushes and pulls the swaying motion lens and degradation lens, brings together scattered pictures and scenes, and conveys to us an image of the motherland that is at the forefront of world development.

  A series of high-speed trains shuttle through the motherland, from the northeast of Snow Country to tropical Hainan; Cars are running on the expressway, reshaping the new symbol of China geography; The automated seaport terminal can handle the world trade quickly and effectively; China’s network has achieved global connectivity in minutes. During the running, China also kept slowing down, stopped to look back, and reflected on various problems encountered in the process of modernization.

  Tears and laughter of Luocuo and Rosandanda, poverty alleviation cadres in Zhaxigang Village, Xizang Autonomous Region, children having free lunches in the mountains, China soldiers "No matter where you are, don’t forget that behind you is a great motherland, and there is a speed called China’s rescue, and there is a kind of luck that I am from China" … … The film’s rigorous but vivid commentary expresses the rapid development of the motherland in a slow-flowing daily life.

  A British media reported the transition from the old platform to the new platform at Longyan Railway Station in Fujian, which only took nine hours, which made the British amazed at the advanced infrastructure project in China. Musk, an American entrepreneur who just sent a sports car into space, couldn’t help forwarding this report and praised that "China’s advanced infrastructure is developing more than 100 times faster than the United States".

  The mountain peaks that Shan Ying once couldn’t fly can now be climbed in 10 minutes; It used to take 12 hours from Beijing to Shanghai, but now it only takes 4.5 hours; 2.99 million base stations and 890 million users, and the total length of optical cable lines in China has reached 30.41 million kilometers; China has contributed more than 30% to the world economy, becoming the first engine to drive the global economy … … Long after the film ended, these pictures and figures still reverberated in my mind.

  The grand vow of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is echoing in the east of the world. The film not only brought the double shock of vision and soul, but also made China people proud and proud, and made our younger generation full of fighting spirit and vitality!

  The first three hours of the film’s release broke the box office record of this kind of film in China. The noteworthy data is that young people constitute the main force of watching "Amazing, My Country". Cat’s eye data shows that 55.5% of the audience in this film are 20-29 years old. On the Internet, a large number of post-90s and post-00s praised the film. The young mode of communication makes the young audience, as the main force of the box office, feel cordial and causes our personal thinking.

  As soon as Qiao Wenwen, a college student, walked out of the cinema, she excitedly took out her mobile phone and chatted with her grandmother in the countryside, telling her that more welfare policies would be distributed to the grassroots. Qiao Wenwen’s dream is to become a grass-roots worker, and transform the mountains that gave birth to her with both hands and the villagers. Wang Jie Shao, a young man from Lanzhou, said that it takes six hours to get home by high-speed train when he goes home for the New Year. In the past, it took more than ten hours to get a hard seat in the Spring Festival travel rush train.

  At the beginning of the film, Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s lifelong struggle is to hope that China will become "the richest country in the world, the happiest country in the world, and the people of China will become the happiest people in the world". Today, the rapidly developing motherland has created a good employment environment and a world of innovation for us. As a "powerful generation", this is the best time and a challenging time, and we have a long way to go.

After 90, we should also tell the "China story"

Zhong Yang, a master student of Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2016

  After reading "Amazing, My Country", I can’t calm down for a long time like an electric shock. I am not only confident and proud of the development achievements of my motherland, but also moved by the ordinary stories of countless people who are fighting in the front line of building the motherland. When the shocking sound effect, the magnificent narrative picture, and the eloquent story are integrated, my blood is boiling all over and my eyes are wet many times, and I sincerely give my thumbs up to praise my motherland.

  In addition to the magnificent narrative, the film also shows the lives of ordinary people struggling in their jobs from an equal perspective. What impressed me the most was a Tibetan poverty alleviation cadre. In order to persuade her poverty alleviation object to move, she tried her best, tried her best, and made a lot of efforts, just for the poverty alleviation object to live a good life, but her kindness was often not understood. She is the epitome of countless poverty alleviation cadres in China. She has devoted herself wholeheartedly and selflessly, just to contribute to the construction of the motherland.

  This poverty alleviation cadre is about my age, which is one of the reasons why she left a deep impression on me. She is so young, but she shoulders the mission of getting rid of poverty and working silently in precision poverty alleviation, which has become the pillar of the times. In addition to being moved, I am also rethinking: What can I do for the construction of the motherland?

  As future news media practitioners, we have the obligation to open up the public opinion field between the government and the people, to assume the responsibility of media supervision, and to strive for more right to speak in the public opinion field of the international community with pen as a sword and mouth as a knife. Have the obligation to tell the "China Story" well, and inherit and spread the profound and profound China culture from ancient times to modern times.

  As a future news media practitioner, in my daily life, I also want to contribute to the cultural communication of the motherland. During the exchange study in Taiwan Province, I became a Chinese volunteer, teaching foreign students Chinese and actively carrying out the mission of "telling the story of China and spreading and inheriting China culture". I found that foreign students not only revere the long-standing traditional culture of China, but also yearn for the lively and open modern culture of China. "The whole world is speaking Chinese" not only exists in songs, but also is fully reflected in our real life.

  In addition, I found that Taiwan Province people’s understanding of the mainland is not comprehensive enough, but in fact, many young people in Taiwan Province are full of yearning for the mainland. They have been exposed to the development status of many mainland cultural industries through the Internet. Mainland film and television dramas, mainland music, mainland variety shows and mainland apps are imperceptibly affecting young people in Taiwan Province. With the economic development of the mainland of China and the introduction of the policy of Taiwan Province compatriots coming to the mainland to enjoy national treatment, many Taiwan Province people have the opportunity to come to study, find jobs, start businesses and live. Through on-the-spot experience, they can feel the changes in the mainland and get to know the real mainland. They have virtually become the folk mouthpiece of cross-strait exchanges and spread the real mainland message.

  As media practitioners and researchers, we should also devote ourselves to presenting a more comprehensive, three-dimensional and positive image of China to people all over the world through various media channels and forms, so as to enhance the all-round attraction of China culture.

  The post-90s generation was once regarded by public opinion as "tricky in character and weird in behavior", a bit like the "beat generation", but now, we are given a new mission and responsibility — — I am sincerely proud of the "powerful generation". We should constantly improve ourselves and actively become young people with ideals, morality, education and discipline.

  The "powerful generation" happens to be at the historical intersection of the goal of "two hundred years". History gives us a mission and also gives us opportunities. It is our advantage of "maverick, unconventional and pursuing individuality" that makes us full of innovative spirit and infinite possibilities in the future.

  In the new era, our small life will be like a meteor, breaking the sky, blooming gorgeous sparks in the long river of history, reflecting the meaning of life. The "powerful generation" has a heavy sense of responsibility, but at the same time, their self-confidence is stronger. There are so many charming people in the country, and it depends on the present.

I am willing to be a pawn for a strong army and jump down to the grassroots.

Liu Weichao, Ph.D. student of the 17 th Team of Political College of National Defense University

  It is lucky and even greater to throw yourself down and do one thing well all your life.

  "Amazing, My Country" begins with the introduction of a China Bridge that can be called a miracle of the world — — Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. What moved people was not only its grandeur, but also the memory of its chief designer Lin Ming: "When I first accepted this project, I was 48 years old. Today, the final joint installation is carried out, and I am over 60 years old. " In the past twelve years, my hair has become fashionable, which makes people feel the passing of time. But what is even more impressive and admirable is the self-confidence evaluation of Mr. Lin’s designer: "What we see here is the best equipment, the best construction method, the best technology and the best project in the world." Behind the four "best in the world", it is the dedication and concentration of the great country craftsmen represented by Mr. Lin.

  This dedication and dedication have deepened my understanding of "going to the place where the motherland needs it most" and solved the problem of "going to the grassroots" that has been bothering me for a long time. My father is a veteran. From his age of eighteen to mine, he devoted his best forty years to the fiery grass-roots military camp. May be influenced by my father’s subtle influence, after graduating from a local university, I was admitted to the graduate school of the military academy; And after three years, I was fortunate to be one of the few direct doctoral students in National Defense University. At the beginning, I chose to join the army, hoping that one day, like my father, I could burn myself and exercise myself in the fiery melting pot of grass-roots military camps. After reading the blog, my initial heart was shaken from time to time, and I was concerned about which unit was closer to home and more comfortable.

  Until I saw the miracle of China and the silent efforts behind the speed of China in Awesome, My Country, I understood. Yes, the grassroots are indeed more bitter and tired, and they will encounter more difficulties. However, if you are afraid of hardship and tiredness and covet "promotion and wealth", you can "please go elsewhere". Why did you join the army with a pen to serve the country when you graduated from college? Young people have many ways to live: working close to home, surrounded by relatives and friends; Or decent and tidy, with high income … … These are not necessarily the most suitable for your life. Because what really suits you is never the appearance of reality, but the inner feelings brought by your own values and beliefs. "Today’s responsibility lies not with others, but with my youth." I threw myself down and made myself a pawn on the road to strengthening the army. I think it is more glorious than "setting a small goal and earning him 100 million yuan."

  Do not seek comfort, unwilling to be mediocre. Dedicated to the grassroots, but also a hero!

  As a "powerful generation", besides having a firm will to be down-to-earth and rooted at the grassroots level, we should also focus on establishing the following three consciousnesses: First, we should establish mass consciousness and fight as soldiers. First of all, uphold the concept that "doctors and masters are all soldiers" and truly blend in with their comrades. A first-class army needs a first-class team, and it should be the first step for itself to enter the grassroots.

  The second is to establish a model consciousness. There are many examples in Awesome, My Country. One sentence "Look at me" is better than ten thousand sentences "Give me the job". Combining with oneself, we must first take the lead in ability, learn from teachers, classmates, books and practice, and effectively improve our own ability and quality; In the future grass-roots work, we should give play to our comparative advantages of strong understanding and fast learning, and give play to the leading role of the backbone. In addition, it is necessary to take the lead in attitude, have a good command of knowledge and skills, and it is difficult for a person to master everything. However, in the face of hard work, tiring work, dirty work and dangerous work, he should dare to be the first to show his responsibility and attitude of "dedicating himself to the mission and leading troops" in the Political College.

  The third is to establish a sense of learning. Doctors and masters are all soldiers, but they can’t just be soldiers. First of all, we must establish a lifelong learning concept. The progress of various undertakings in "Awesome, My Country" requires builders to keep up with the pace of the times and keep learning and moving forward. The military affairs of grass-roots companies are complicated, and it is easy for people to delay their studies and forget to study under various excuses, so they should always be self-vigilant; Secondly, it is necessary to change from information sender to knowledge sharer. The information transmitter was once one of the important roles of grass-roots political cadres and the key mechanism for political work to play its role. However, with the continuous improvement of the informationization and intelligence level of the military camp, being a doctor does not necessarily have more information resources to serve comrades. Therefore, it is necessary to change roles and use the academic thinking cultivated by scientific research experience to reprocess and further process "information" so that "information" can become "knowledge" more suitable for the needs of officers and men.

  Looking back at history, the fate of the country and the nation has always been closely linked with the strength of the army and the victory or defeat of the battlefield. In today’s China, the goal of national rejuvenation has never been so firm, and the desire to realize the Chinese dream has never been so strong. A generation has a generation’s mission and responsibility, and the heavy responsibility of strengthening the army falls on our shoulders. If we want to provoke this burden, we must jump down. As a "powerful generation", I don’t want to be named Hou, I hope Hai Boping.

A new era of temperature, strength and grace

  The word "time" makes people feel that there is a sense of historical vicissitudes, which seems out of reach. When we read or hear the stories of a certain era, we often envy or feel the people who are in different times. But just as we can’t detect the revolution of the earth, it is difficult for us to have an overview of the magnificent times when we are there.

  Fortunately, there is such a film, "Awesome, My Country", which shows us the era we live in — — This is a new era.

  The new era is an era with temperature. From the three generations of Bashang plantation to the health administrators who work in households, from the poverty alleviation of the whole population to the weaving of the world’s largest basic medical security network … … Every ordinary hero’s dream should not be hidden in the snow. This is the temperature in China.

  The new era is an era of strength. From "Jilong" going into the sea to "Mozi" going up to the sky, from "Sea Beast" Blue Whale 2 to "Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST)" FAST, from "Liaoning" aircraft carrier going out to sea smoothly, to C919 aircraft successfully soaring … … The hard struggle behind it turned into a sonorous step.

  The new era is an era of grace. From the community of human destiny to the "One Belt, One Road" strategy, from the establishment of the AIIB to the establishment of the Silk Road Fund, from the APEC meeting in Beijing by Yanqi Lake to the G20 Summit in Hangzhou by Xizi Lake … … Today’s China is closer to the center of the world than ever before, taking on more responsibilities in the center of the stage.

  Not long ago, a tribute film to Tsinghua University also triggered a discussion boom. What makes people unable to calm down for a long time is the different times of each generation and the choices that people made in different times. "Ask nothing about the west and the east" has also become a hot word for a while. This word is selected from Tsinghua University’s school song "Lide makes a point, asks nothing about the West and the East". "Nothing to ask about the West and the East" is actually a kind of "pursuit without personal utility". It is actually a blend of feelings of home and country and historical responsibility, and it is also an initial heart belonging to the times.

  This year is the year of reform and opening up. The extension line of reform and opening up has been drawn to this day, and we still have many problems to face, to think about and to solve. The situation we are facing now is no easier than it was 40 years ago. However, it is this difficulty that has become the responsibility of our generation.

  Without reform and opening up, there would be no "awesome, my country" today. Looking back at the whole time axis of reform and opening up, the beginning is ideological emancipation, the big discussion about the standard of truth. Nowadays, we still need to emancipate our minds.

  We do face many difficulties and challenges, at the same time, we also face many opportunities and opportunities. At this moment, we need to hold the banner of reform and opening up higher.

  Looking back at history, from the household contract responsibility system in Xiaogang Village of Fengyang to the implementation of the "streamline administration, delegate power, strengthen regulation and improve services", from the rapid rise of Pudong New Area to the spread of the "Belt and Road", it is always inseparable from our understanding of the national conditions, our understanding of practice and our grasp of the present. The new era is a promising period of historical opportunities, and we should stick to seeking truth from facts. Seeking truth from facts as the motto of my school, I think its significance lies not only in my school, but also in a wider range.

  Countries in the new era need to seek truth from facts, and seeking truth from facts here is a determined force. "Don’t take the rigid and closed old road, and don’t take the evil road of changing the flag." For a country, the choice of development path must be deeply rooted in the soil of the motherland, and it is not allowed to "digress" at all. This requires firm self-confidence and finding strength in self-confidence.

  The society in the new era needs to seek truth from facts, and seeking truth from facts here is a joint effort, "thinking in one place and making efforts in one place." With the rapid change of society, flowers are becoming more and more attractive, and various values are rampant. Individuals in society should ask themselves what kind of us are needed for the current development. We need to build a broader consensus and follow it to make the society better.

  Young people in the new era need to seek truth from facts. Seeking truth from facts here is a relay to "walk the long March of our generation". Each generation has different historical experiences and different historical missions. But the same thing is, history has chosen those who have chosen the motherland without exception, and those who have striven and taken responsibility without exception. Only when the younger generation has ideals and can successfully take over the "baton" of history can the country and society have hope.

  The country, society and youth in the new era need to return to the initial heart of the times, and the initial heart of the era of "asking nothing about the West and the East" is actually seeking truth from facts. In line with the principle of seeking truth from facts and unremitting struggle, we can see a more powerful country.
