The 14 new rooms, spanning over 1,100 square meters, wi

host 105 works by Venice and Florence artists, including Titian and Tintoretto. The pieces were st

ored in the museum’s warehouses, and about a third had not been exhibited to the public for several years.

“All these great masters are back on view here in the Uffizi in new spaciou

s halls where we can have many visitors to admire them,” says Uffizi’s director, Eike Schmidt.

“It is as if a second, new museum had opened inside the gallery,” he adds.

Titian’s Venus of Urbino hangs in a room with two other paintings and is

among the most celebrated canvas on display in the new section of the Florence art gallery.

By late April, China had been hit by 129 African swin

fever outbreaks, affecting all 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions on the mainland, since the country’s first reported outb

reak in Shenyang, Liaoning province, in August, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This resulted in more than 1 million pigs being slaughtered to prevent and control the disease, which is deadly to pigs but does no

t affect people. The ministry has called for intensified research and development to expedite the availability of v

accines for disease prevention and control, but admitted difficulties due to the complex nature of the virus.

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork, with an a

nnual production of 700 million pigs. Pork accounts for 62 percent of meat con

sumption in China, and sustained outbreaks of African swine fever will cause devastating consequences to the pi

g industry and endanger China’s food security, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences said.

The news of the pyramid explosion in Egypt has been buzzing

The news of the pyramid explosion in Egypt has been buzzing in the past two days.

Many friends who want to travel to Egypt in the New Year are paying attention to

what’s going on. In fact, this mainly refers to the explosion near the Egyptian Pyramid at 6 p.m. yesterday, December 28.

A bus loaded with 14 people from Vietnam was driving along a section of the road near

the Giza Pyramid on the outskirts of Cairo when it was hit by a bomb, which resulted in three deaths and many injuries, including the driver of the bus.

So far no one or organization has claimed responsibility for the explosion, and the Egyptian police have made no substantial progress in their investigation. They only

know that the bomb placed behind a broken wall on the street is a homemade

improvised explosion. Although it is simple and indigenous, its power is not small. Half of the Vietnamese tour group’s cars are bombed.

Then, surprisingly, when Egyptian Prime Minister Madbury visited the victims and

contacted the Vietnamese Embassy, he said the following words: “Sometimes attacks like this happen, and it may happen again in the future. No country in the world can say 100 percent safe.”

For Prime Minister Madbury’s remarks, the Internet has been discussed by a large number of netizens, and even some netizens said that this is Egypt’s shirking

responsibility, so that many people want to travel to Egypt are disappointed. Some people also think that Prime Minister Madbury is telling the truth. No problem. So what do you think?

But let me remind you that tourists

who want to travel to Egypt

should pay attention to

safety and think carefully.

Six younger children finally responded to the various

Six younger children finally responded to the various “black material”

questioning circulated on the Internet, which he himself considered to be a personal insult. Indeed, there are too many rumors about six-year-olds on the Internet, and even a lot of black material. Six-year-old children are still nearly out of security after being black. He himself said that these black materials can not be tolerated! uuuuuuuuuuu

Recently, a six-year-old boy was interviewed by the media. He said that he could not make sarcasm or humiliate me. Now it’s all behind the scenes. We should stop there. Even now all doubts are not created by one person, but by a very bad organization. This is what someone called for.

In addition, six-year-olds also expressed the hope of realizing the real-name system on the Internet. Everyone publishes their names, contact information and opportunities for face-to-face communication with you.

The response of six-year-olds has attracted much attention again.

In the eyes of six young children, the real-name system on the Internet is a very necessary thing, so that the screen is blackened, is basically rumored. If there is doubt, it can be face-to-face communication, there is no need to spread rumors so casually.

Not to mention whether it was blackened or not, online rumors are really terrible, because nobody knows who is spreading rumors on the other side of the screen. There are also many people who bear cyber violence for no reason, which is very terrible.

And the reason why six-year-old children say that there are small groups of black themselves is mainly because there are too many black materials about him.

Now as long as you search for six-year-olds, you will find that many people summed up the speeches of six-year-olds on different occasions, saying that he relies on a paragraph to walk all over the world. Travel to the West alone is a work that can last a lifetime.

Even some netizens said that the success of Journey to the West is the joint efforts of the director and the crew, not the credit of one person, and that six young children should not dominate the limelight alone.

Everyone’s doubts make six-year-olds almost out of security for the evening festival, and the situation of being black is really very serious.

If you look carefully, you will find that some of these statements are really very unfriendly, and there are even suspicions that they are taken out of context. No wonder six younger children themselves are unwilling to do so.

Although there is no real-name system on the Internet, you should be careful when speaking. Your little words may cause great harm to others. This is a terrible situation.

Questions are okay,

but they need to be justified.

It is not advisable to make

a rumor out of nothing.

Not Sly. Haggon would have called it abomination, but Varamyr had often slipped inside her skin as she was being mounted by One Eye. He did not want to spend his

new life as a bitch, though, not unless he

had no other choice. Stalker might suit him better, the younger male … though One Eye was larger and fiercer, and it was One Eye who took Sly whenever she went into heat.

“They say you forget,” Haggon had told him, a few weeks before his own death. “When the man’s flesh dies, his spirit lives on inside the beast, but every day his

memory fades, and the beast becomes a little less a warg, a little more a wolf, until nothing of the man is left and only the beast remains.”

“Wonder what happened to her face,” was57 her mental question, but the answer was doubtless any one of a dozen possibilities and she didn’t waste time in surmises.

Mrs. Pollzoff took up the speaking tube and Roberta attached the end so she could hear what was to be said.

“You have an exceptionally fine plane,” Mrs. Pollzoff remarked.

“I think so,” Roberta answered with a smile.

“Care to sell it?” The girl was so astonished that she gasped.

“No, indeed, I do not,” she answered emphatically.

He was almost there when his crutch snapped

He was almost there when his crutch snapped beneath his weight, and his legs went out from under him.

How long he sprawled there with his blood reddening the snow Varamyr could not have said. The snow will bury me. It would be a peaceful death. They say you feel

warm near the end, warm and sleepy.

It would be good to feel warm again, though it made him sad to think that he would never see the green lands, the warm lands

 

beyond the Wall that Mance used to sing about. “The world beyond the Wall is not for our kind,” Haggon used to say. “The free folk fear skinchangers, but they honor us as

well. South of the Wall, the kneelers hunt us down and butcher us like pigs.”

 

There near the end was the long hangar with the pilots’ quarters close by. The middle of the ground was marked off for landing, runways, lights and signals. Further along,

 

to one side were the special houses for special planes; Nike used to occupy one of them, and beyond them was the huge factory building, nearly all glass, with the executive and other offices facing the road. If she closed her eyes for a moment,

 

Roberta could picture every inch of the whole plant. Here and there were animated-looking objects which she knew were men or women workers; the bus and one of the

 

company’s cars were racing along like a couple of toys. Resolutely she turned her face away and applied herself with determination to the task at hand. Once56 she noticed

 

that Mrs. Pollzoff was looking at her in the mirror, but she smiled behind her goggles. She wasn’t going to let her passenger know how she felt about being separated from her former work, its varied interests, and happy companionships.

Other beasts were best left alone, the hunter

Other beasts were best left alone, the hunter had declared. Cats were vain and cruel, always ready to turn on you. Elk and deer were prey; wear their skins too

long, and even the bravest man became a coward. Bears, boars, badgers, weasels … Haggon did not hold with such. “Some skins you never want to wear, boy. You won’t like what you’d become.” Birds

were the worst, to hear him tell it. “Men were not meant to leave the earth. Spend too much time in the clouds and you

never want to come back down again. I know skinchangers who’ve tried hawks, owls, ravens. Even in their own skins, they sit moony, staring up at the bloody blue.”

“Yes.”

“I was sorry, of course. Well, I took the liberty of asking them for your address and communicating with you. I prefer you to one of the men for my pilot; also your little plane rides very comfortably. This morning is wasted, but the

afternoon is still young. I should like to engage you to take me along the coast as usual. Can you meet me in, say, half an hour?”

“Well—” Roberta hesitated.

“You will be well paid. You have not connected, as yet, with another firm, or taken on a passenger?”

“No,” Roberta had to admit. Just then her mother came hurrying in lest the call be53 from her husband. She glanced at her daughter and saw the look of doubt on the young face.

“What is it, dear?” she asked softly. Roberta put the instrument low and spoke softly.

“Mrs. Pollzoff wants me to take her up this afternoon.”

“Perhaps you will feel more comfortable if you are flying,” her mother suggested.

Far away, a wolf gave howl.A shiver went through

Far away, a wolf gave howl.

A shiver went through Varamyr. He knew that howl as well as Lump had once known his mother’s voice. One Eye. He was the oldest of his three, the biggest, the

fiercest. Stalker was leaner, quicker, younger, Sly more cunning, but both went in fear of One Eye. The old wolf was fearless, relentless, savage.

Varamyr had lost control of his other beasts in the agony of the eagle’s death. His shadowcat had raced into the woods, whilst his snow bear turned her claws on those

around her, ripping apart four men before falling to a spear. She would have slain Varamyr had he come within her reach. The bear hated him, had raged each time he wore her skin or climbed upon her back.

His wolves, though …

“That’s what we want,” Mrs. Langwell told him, then turned to her daughter. “That is our telephone, dear.”

“I’ll go and answer it,” Roberta replied, and ran to the house as fast as she could. The bell was still ringing so she knew that the party had not been discouraged over the

delay and given up getting in touch with the family. “Hello,” she spoke into the phone.

“I wish to speak with Miss Langwell,” came the reply, and although the voice sounded familiar, Roberta could not recognize it immediately.
