China Daily (Canada) - - SHANGHAI -

The Shang­hai Mu­seum launched a creative de­sign com­pe­ti­tion on May 18 and has called on art lovers from around the world to sub­mit creations that are in­spired by a se­lec­tion of cul­tural relics from the mu­seum. The win­ners of the com­pe­ti­tion will be de­ter­mined through on­line vot­ing and a pro­fes­sional jury panel. The fi­nal re­sults will be an­nounced in Oc­to­ber and the top win­ner will re­ceive a prize of 10,000 yuan ($1,529).

The in­au­gu­ral Shang­hai In­ter­na­tional Chil­dren’s Life­style Expo will take place from July 7 to 10, giv­ing vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to learn about the dif­fer­ent things that can help with chil­dren's phys­i­cal and men­tal devel­op­ment. The 12,000-square-meter ex­hi­bi­tion area will have sev­eral sec­tions in­clud­ing a fu­ture li­brary, a par­ent-kid ed­u­ca­tion venue and a healthy liv­ing zone. The event will fea­ture hun­dreds of com­pa­nies from coun­tries such as the United States, Ja­pan and Ger­many.

The lat­est hap­pi­ness in­dex of Shang­hai women stood at 3.54 out of 5, with more than 85 per­cent of them feel­ing happy about their lives. Sta­tis­tics also show that the av­er­age ex­pected life­span of Shang­hai fe­male res­i­dents ex­ceeds 85 years and that women have be­come more in­volved in so­ci­ety with a con­tri­bu­tion rate of more than 23 per­cent, ac­count­ing for nearly 50 per­cent of the to­tal con­tri­bu­tion from welle­d­u­cated tal­ents in the city.
