abstract:

Recently, there has been some rebound in the automobile sector. After the rapid market crash in January and February this year, the recent bottom rebound of the automobile ETF (516110) has also reached more than 20%. This also reflects that investors have certain expectations for the recovery of the automobile market. In addition, under the background of the upcoming release of Xiaomi Automobile, the relevant industrial chains, including suppliers of thermal management, air suspension, smart cockpit, interior and exterior accessories, etc., have also been catalyzed to some extent.

In the long run, we feel that we need to pay more attention to two trends: one is the trend of new energy for automobiles, and the other is the trend of intelligent automobiles. In the past two years, the new energy vehicle sector has undergone substantial adjustment, and the main factor is the deterioration of the supply and demand pattern of the industrial chain. However, we have seen that the spot price of lithium carbonate has rebounded from the previous low of 96,000 yuan, and recently reached the level of about 110,000 yuan, which also reflects the improvement of the supply and demand pattern.

From the perspective of automobile sales, the automobile retail market in March was almost at the level of 1.65 million vehicles, up 3.7% year-on-year, and the growth rate also reflected some signs of repair. In addition, it is estimated that the sales volume of new energy vehicles will reach 750,000 in March, up by 37.1% year-on-year and 93% quarter-on-quarter, with a penetration rate of 45%. On the one hand, it reflects that automobile sales have recovered after the off-season during the previous Spring Festival, and the more important reason is that new models were launched intensively in March, including the official delivery of new models and the climbing of production capacity.

In addition, there is still a price war in the current market, which does restrain the sales of automobiles in the short term. However, after the price war of automobiles stabilizes and the price-performance ratio of automobiles is higher, the sales of automobiles will still pick up obviously.

This year, the automobile industry is also facing a major change, and the generative AI is expected to accelerate the upgrade of autonomous driving technology. First of all, the cognitive reasoning ability of generative AI or large model can help the automatic driving algorithm to process and train data sets efficiently, so that the system has the ability of independent data mining and processing, which can improve the efficiency of data processing and reduce the cost. Second, the large model technology can accelerate and help the upgrade and iteration of the autonomous driving algorithm. The third is the simulation system. The large model is expected to build simulation test scenarios related to real driving scenarios, so that the models and technologies of intelligent driving can be trained in these simulation scenarios.

In the long run, the new energy and intelligence of automobiles are still a relatively clear trend. We think we can still focus on the automobile production chain, including some investment opportunities like new energy vehicles and smart cars. From the perspective of investment targets, we can pay attention to such things as automobile ETF(516110), new energy vehicle ETF(159806) and smart vehicle ETF(159889).

Do aquatic dinosaurs exist or not?

  The prehistoric creatures

  Intern reporter Dai Xiaopei

  In the evolutionary history of dinosaurs, one of the biggest mysteries is: Are there aquatic dinosaurs? Although we know that ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and canglong all live in water, according to their position on the evolutionary tree, they are not strictly dinosaurs, but only close relatives of dinosaurs. So why are aquatic dinosaurs so rare?

  Spinosaurus is an atypical aquatic dinosaur?

  In fact, among the dinosaur fossils found, there are not dinosaurs that did not live in water at all.

  In 1912, people discovered a kind of theropod dinosaur in Egypt — — Fossils of Spinosaurus, which lived in the Cretaceous period from about 110 million to 93.5 million years ago.

  According to the early data released by scientists, Spinosaurus was 12.6 to 18 meters long and weighed 7 to 20.9 tons. In recent years, more complete specimens support early research, and scientists found that Spinosaurus could grow to a length of 15 to 15.6 meters. However, the latest data estimate that its weight is 6.4 tons to 7.2 tons. Unlike most dinosaurs, Spinosaurus had some unique spines on its back, forming a sail-like structure. According to public information, the spines on the back of Spinosaurus were at least 1.65 meters long. The spine of Spinosaurus is an extension of its vertebrae, which researchers believe can help Spinosaurus regulate its body temperature or show its unique charm.

  "After comparing Spinosaurus with crocodiles, people think that Spinosaurus may be aquatic." Xu Xing, a paleontologist at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of China Academy of Sciences, told the Science and Technology Daily reporter that according to the skull shape of Spinosaurus, it was found that the skull of Spinosaurus was long and narrow, similar to that of modern crocodiles. Specifically, the mouth is slender, and the direction and size of teeth help it catch fish and fix its prey in the mouth.

  In addition, by analyzing the fossils of individual Spinosaurus, some scientists found that there were fish scale residues in the stomach contents of Spinosaurus. "This shows that Spinosaurus ate creatures in the water, and it can be speculated that Spinosaurus may live on the shore or in the water." Xu Xing said that another evidence that Spinosaurus lived in water is that studies have found that the isotopic composition of Spinosaurus bones is close to that of aquatic animals.

  However, Xu Xing stressed that there is no very conclusive evidence that Spinosaurus must have lived in water. "Because Spinosaurus didn’t have a fin-like structure like aquatic animals such as sea lions or seals. This shows that Spinosaurus cannot live completely in water and is not a typical aquatic animal. " He said that according to the existing findings, it is not easy to judge whether Spinosaurus lived in the water or on the shore for a long time.

  "According to the teeth and skull of Spinosaurus, people think that Spinosaurus mainly lived by eating fish, but Spinosaurus is just a kind of dinosaur with a special feeding habit, and generally speaking, Spinosaurus just goes into the water to prey and then returns to land life. Therefore, we cannot put forward ‘ Aquatic dinosaur ’ The concept. " Xing Lida, an associate professor at China Geo University, said.

  Dinosaurs were aquatic animals?

  Some scientists believe that dinosaurs were originally aquatic animals. This statement stems from a puzzle: how did the slender legs of dinosaurs support its huge body? Brian Ford, a cell biologist at Cambridge University in England, tried to explain that dinosaurs mainly lived in water and supported their bodies by buoyancy. He said that dinosaurs swam in the lake most of the time, and their tails provided assistance, and their footprints were printed into the mud.

  According to Ford, it can explain why archaeologists often dig dinosaur footprints, but there are few traces of dinosaur tails. Compared with modern large animals such as elephants and rhinoceroses, dinosaurs had small legs but fat tails.

  "It makes sense to think that dinosaurs lived in water." Ford said, "dinosaurs used water to support their weight, float their tails, regulate their body temperature and get food."

  However, Paul Barrett, a paleontologist at the Natural History Museum in London, believes that this statement makes no sense. He said that with the help of the principle of load-bearing structural engineering, researchers have proved that the strength of dinosaur leg muscles is enough to support its body to walk easily on land. Moreover, dinosaurs had difficulty breathing and walked slowly in the water. "They may live near water, and sometimes they go into the water to cool off, but I don’t accept the theory that they live in water." Paul said.

  In 2007, scientists found traces of dinosaurs’ claws at the bottom of the water in the Carmelos basin in northeastern Spain, which became conclusive evidence that "dinosaurs could swim". In 2011, Chinese and American paleontologists found a group of strange footprints with only toe marks and no heels in Chicheng County, Hebei Province. Experts believe that this is the hard evidence of dinosaurs playing in the water — — Tracers leave scratches on the bottom of the lake after entering the water. As the depth of the lake increases, their feet can touch less and less water bottom, and their footprints gradually weaken, and their three toes can not be completely preserved.

  Completely aquatic dinosaurs don’t exist?

  Although there is evidence that some dinosaurs lived in water, Xing Lida still opposed the concept of "aquatic dinosaurs". “‘ Aquatic dinosaur ’ It is only a hypothesis put forward in recent years, but it is extremely easy to include Syngnathus, Canglong, plesiosaur, etc., confusing concepts. "

  Xu Xing also told reporters: "According to the existing research, there are no pure water dinosaurs. Let’s just say that there is some evidence that dinosaurs lived in water for some time. The limbs of plesiosaurs, ichthyosaurs or sea lions and seals will undergo height changes to adapt to life completely in water, but there is no evidence that such dinosaurs exist at present. "

  Strictly speaking, no real aquatic dinosaurs have been found. Xu Xing believes that there are two possibilities. First, dinosaurs did not give priority to occupy the water niche in the era when they lived. At that time, the water environment might be occupied by crocodiles and other aquatic animals. Second, there may be aquatic dinosaurs, but they have not become mainstream species, and the fossils of such dinosaurs have not been preserved or discovered.

  "In recent years, with the deepening of field trips, people have discovered more and more strange dinosaurs. The current fossil record has not fully revealed the diversity of dinosaurs. " Xu Xing said that the original fossil record is deficient, some deficiencies may be remedied, and some deficiencies may exist forever.

  What’s the point of studying dinosaurs and even arguing about whether dinosaurs were aquatic or terrestrial?

  "First of all, it can prove some evolutionary phenomena. Species are always changing, such as from big to small, from land to air. Scientists hope to reveal the law of change. " Xu Xing said that the current ecosystem is called the world of birds and flowers, characterized by beautiful birds and flowering plants, and this ecosystem evolved from the Mesozoic ecosystem dominated by dinosaurs. We need a lot of data and fossil records to reveal this evolution process.

  At the same time, scientists should also reveal which factors affect the evolution of life, such as genes or environment. "It is also important for human beings to understand their own lives to understand the laws of the evolution of all things." Xu Xing said.

  This dinosaur can also swim and hunt in the water.

  At the end of 2017, research teams from Italy and other countries discovered a new dinosaur fossil in the late Cretaceous strata of Mongolia, which was roughly waterfowl-like. This new dinosaur species was named Eichzka, commonly known as "duck dinosaur". "Duck Dinosaur" has a long and curved neck, and its forelimbs are fin-shaped. It can walk on land like a duck and swim with its forelimbs. They also have many tiny teeth suitable for eating fish. Another feature of "Duck Dinosaur" is that its beak and upper jaw have many small holes, which were once filled with nerve endings. This kind of mouth has a similar structure to the beaks of some waterfowl. This shows that "duck dinosaurs" may have preyed in the water or at the bottom of rivers and lakes.

These cities are engaged in "nightlife". Come and see if there is your home.

Do you want to find a place to relax after work?

It’s getting late. Do you want to ask three or five friends out to play?

Many friends have the enthusiasm of "don’t want to sleep, get up and get high", but they always feel that there are still many places where going out to play at night is not good …

Don’t worry, the voice of the "night owls" has been received by the relevant departments! Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Jinan and other places have introduced policies to promote night economic development, and cities that never sleep will appear!

The gospel of "night owl" is coming!

On July 12th, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Commerce issued the "Measures for Further Prospering Night Economy and Promoting Consumption Growth in Beijing", which requires that from this year, from May to October every year, Beijing Metro Lines 1 and 2 should take the initiative to work overtime to serve nightlife on Fridays and Saturdays. These two routes cover the main nightlife gathering areas in Beijing, and you can catch the last bus after having a midnight snack in Wukesong and visiting nightclubs in Sanlitun.

Prosperous night economy needs not only transportation, but also some special projects. Like Sanlitun, Wukesong, Blue Harbor, World Trade day order and other "night owls" gathering places, a series of night themed activities such as Midnight Food Store Food Festival, Lighting Festival and "Show Beijing" tourism performances will be held in the future.

In addition to these famous business districts becoming landmarks of "Night Capital", Beijing will also build 16 unique night markets, a large number of "Night Capital" living circles and a large wave of "Night Capital" business circles …

By the end of 2021, a brand-new "Night Capital" will be fully launched. It’s really a little expectation to think about it!

I’ve heard of CEO, but have you heard of "nightlife CEO"?

In April this year, Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce and other nine departments’ Guiding Opinions on Promoting Night Economy Development in Shanghai proposed to set up a "Night District Chief" and a "Night CEO" to assist the "Night District Chief".

Dear "night talent", the opportunity to show your skills is coming!

However, this "nightlife CEO" is not easy to do, not only to make suggestions for the night economy-related planning, but also to work closely around the construction goals of nightlife gathering areas such as "international model", "Shanghai flavor" and "fashion trend" The first batch of "nightlife CEOs" are all big names from the industry, such as the heads of Bailian shares and the executives of Shanghai New World …

It can be seen that Shanghai is also struggling to invigorate the night economy, not only letting the leaders in charge of various districts take the helm of the night economic development, but also making market-oriented professional traders the right-hand man in management decision-making.

Night Shanghai, night Shanghai, a brand-new city that never sleeps is quietly rising!

Speaking of the nightlife in Quancheng Jinan, there is probably only drinking. For example, 7.2 tons of mutton can be washed away overnight …

This can also explain from another side that the nightlife of Jinan people is a bit boring.

No, in order to completely enliven the night of Quancheng, Jinan released a big move on June 19-

Night view of Daming Lake.Xinhua News Agency reporter jie feng photo

Listen to Deyun’s cross talk at home, and watch the lights on the boat on Daming Lake!

Jinan, a city famous for its springs, will add many new landmarks to punch in.

Speaking of nightlife in Tianjin, let’s take a look at the comments of netizens-

It is said that a netizen in Tianjin had to open his own bar in order to have a good time …

However, in order to bid farewell to the city that never sleeps, Tianjin has made a real move this time!

Netizens read Tianjin’s opinions on promoting night economic development and felt that the government was sincere-

The picture shows ten thousand people watching the bridge at night in jiefang bridge, Tianjin.? Xinhua News Agency reporter Li Ran photo

In fact, the standard of nightlife that Tianjin people want is not high: for example, enjoying wonderful performances in the Fifth Avenue block; Go into the theater to listen to a wonderful concert; Go into a street restaurant, drink beer and talk about everything …

These needs are being met one by one.

Friends of Tianjinwei, get ready to come out and get high at night!

Having said that, in fact, night economy is a new potential and new kinetic energy for the integrated development of culture, tourism and consumption. Developing urban night economy is also an important entrance to promote new consumption and expand domestic demand. Compared with the daytime, the leisure attribute of the night is more helpful for consumers to perceive the culture and experience the lifestyle, and the night economy will also greatly supplement the leisure consumption during the day.

However, it is particularly important to note that with the rise of night economy, it will also bring pressure on urban infrastructure and public services such as electricity, tap water, subway, public transport, public health, municipal management, security and emergency rescue. It is necessary for urban management departments to increase investment and improve the level of public governance in order to make the city that never sleeps more and more prosperous!

The benchmark level of high-end brand in China, test drive Star Road Star Era ES.

As one of the earliest high-end brands in China, Starway’s initial route was really not smooth. Recently, however, with the launch of Eta Ursae Majoris and the "big changes" in the design and configuration of Lingyun and Lanyue, their sales have also increased significantly. When it comes to today’s electric vehicles, there is no need to accumulate technology in the fuel age, which greatly reduces the threshold for "new forces" to enter the industry, and also leads people to define "good cars" as "refrigerators, color TVs and big sofas". But personally, I think that only by building a good fuel car can we play electric cars more clearly. And the test drive of the Star Road Star Era has given us a satisfactory answer.

Speaking of the Star Road Star Era series, it is a "new force" born under the Star Road brand, such as Geely Galaxy, Changan Qiyuan, GAC Ai ‘an, and Chery’s own Fengyun and Jietu Shanhai, which belong to a special new energy series. The first car owned by Xingtu Xingyu Era is a wide-body coupe that looks very handsome. The new car is based on Chery’s brand-new high-end intelligent electric platform "E0X", and the core tone of this platform is "comfort". At the same time, under this platform, the intelligent S7 developed in cooperation with Huawei was born, which is relatively more intelligent.

In design, Star Age ES creates an elegant sense of movement. The front face adopts the phoenix-feather butterfly face designed by bionic elements, and the three-dimensional level formed by the slender light strip and the English logo of EXEED on the hood also inherits the family characteristics of this brand. Headlights do not adopt the split design of today’s bad customs, but a set of ISD intelligent interactive lights is designed at the position of the air guide below, which can display a variety of patterns, making the whole vehicle full of futuristic feeling and more in line with the public aesthetics.

On the side design, the slender body creates an extremely elegant atmosphere, and the design of the slip back is natural and the proportion of the body is extremely perfect. The length, width and height are 4945/1978/1480mm and the wheelbase is 3000mm respectively. The data of the whole vehicle also fully conforms to the positioning of a C-class car, and all the popular elements such as hidden door handles and frameless doors are also fully equipped.

The tail shape is relatively simple, the blackened penetrating taillights echo the front face, and the English logo of "EXEED" Star Way brand is embedded below, which is more layered.

At the same time, the new car is also equipped with an active electric tail, which is adjustable from 0-15 degrees to 2 gears, and can automatically rise and fall with the speed. It can also be controlled by the car screen, voice and mobile APP.

In the interior design, the whole vehicle creates a stronger sense of movement on the basis of minimalist style. The light-colored interior makes the car look more spacious, and the instrument is designed with a small size and closer to the windshield, which also avoids the excessive deviation of the line of sight when driving, and is also equipped with a HUD head-up display. The interior also uses a penetrating atmosphere lamp, which has the effect of breathing color change.

As for the car, the new car does not use the conjoined screen, but makes the size of the central control screen larger, and the built-in functional applications are also extremely rich. Lion AI full-scene voice assistant has multi-tone recognition and also has a certain language learning ability. The car is also equipped with a 960W 21-channel stereo and two main driver’s headrest stereos, providing exclusive functions such as immersion mode/navigation mode/private mode.

In terms of space, thanks to the brand-new pure electric architecture platform design, the cabin space utilization rate of Xingji ES is as high as 70.2%, the front seats are soft and well wrapped, and the waist support is also in place, which also effectively avoids the fatigue of long-term driving.

The rear row space is quite abundant, and it has obvious advantages in the same class, whether it is head space, leg space or lateral space. With the wide, comfortable and soft-touch seat settings, Xingyue ES can really compete with C-class cars of the same size, such as Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.

In terms of power, Star Road Star Era ES provides three motor configurations, among which the maximum power of two rear-drive models is 252 HP and 313 HP, and the peak torque is 356N·m and 425N·m respectively. The model we test-drive is the Ultra performance version with top matching, with comprehensive power of 480N·m, comprehensive torque of 663N·m, acceleration of 3.7s per 100 kilometers, comprehensive endurance of 650 kilometers, and proper super-running level. In the pure rear-wheel drive model, in addition to the 605 km and 570 km CLTC battery life, the 905 km version is also very eye-catching. It is not an exaggeration to say "far ahead" in the field of electric vehicles.

Of course, as a pure electric vehicle with two motors, it is not new to accelerate quickly. Such as the tidal wave and linear power output, we can "see who is on the road". Of course, as a generation growing up from the fuel age, the quiet driving feeling of electric vehicles may be too uniform. However, Xingyue ES has another specialty, that is, its chassis.

Star Age ES is equipped with intelligent air suspension+CDC electromagnetic damping system. It can use perceptual hardware and intelligent algorithm to preview the speed bump, adjust the suspension damping in advance, improve the ride comfort when passing through the speed bump, and suppress the roll when cornering. At the same time, in a variety of working conditions, it has four modes: energy saving, comfort, sports and self-definition, which can realize the height adjustment of-10 mm-+50 mm and make a car change into an SUV in seconds.

Under the actual experience, we can feel that this chassis has a strong sense of weight, especially in the comfortable mode, the vehicle is like a suspension, which can fully resolve the particles on the road surface and is very soft for the speed bump.

In sports mode, the suspension has a more tough "Q-bomb" texture, and at this time it is more inclined to a high-performance car. At the same time, with the front high-order double wishbone+rear five-bar independent suspension, especially the front double wishbone effectively enhances the grip of the front wheel when cornering, which makes the whole vehicle feel like "hitting where it points" when cornering, and with the precise steering, the excellent handling has achieved the feeling of integration of people and vehicles.

Judging from the performance of the whole vehicle, Star Road Star Era ES really looks like an international mature product. In particular, the comfort and compactness of the chassis, the quietness and advanced feeling reflected in driving, these subjective feelings really do not have a set of measurable data standards. However, if we compare the two brands of Volkswagen and Audi, we will find the obvious difference between them in NVH. And Star Age has indeed achieved the standards of luxury brands. Of course, this is not only a pile of configuration, but an overall adjustment level. As the first step of Xingtu brand’s transformation to new energy, such a product’s excellent product strength also shows full sincerity.

Awesome! Domestic products beauty cosmetics new strength

The rise of the national tide has brought fire to many domestic beauty brands, which are not only easy to use and cost-effective, but also novel and unique in product design.

Shohei Ohtani: "Two Knives" in Baseball.

Kondo Daisuke/Wen

On July 5th, Shohei Ohtani, known as "the best Japanese athlete trained after the Second World War", celebrated his 29th birthday. Shohei Ohtani is 193cm tall and weighs 102kg. At present, he is a star player of American professional baseball team "los angeles angels".

Because the popularity of baseball in China is relatively low, it may be difficult for China people to appreciate the greatness of Shohei Ohtani. Like China, there is no major professional baseball league in Germany. Therefore, the German media once made a very vivid analogy with football. Shohei Ohtani, a Japanese professional baseball player, is like Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer on the football field.

Messi, known as the best striker of this century, was the minister of the arm stocks who won the Argentine national team in FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 last year. Neuer, known as the best goalkeeper in the world, has a superb defensive ability. If football matches are used as an analogy, Shohei Ohtani can be a goalkeeper like Neuer and create a lot of goals like Messi.

However, in the real football match, it is impossible for a player to be a goalkeeper and a striker at the same time. Similarly, in baseball, it is impossible to be a pitcher equivalent to goal keeper and a home run batter equivalent to a football striker. Of course, this, like football, is not "forbidden" in rules, but "impossible" in human physical fitness. Therefore, all football players and baseball players have never thought about having two jobs on the court.

However, since childhood, Shohei Ohtani dreamed that he could become a "court-riding" player who could throw, hit and run. In 2013, after graduating from high school at the age of 18, he joined the Japanese professional baseball team "Hokkaido Japanese Ham Fighters".

Perhaps it was God who blessed Shohei Ohtani. At that time, the head coach of this team was Hideki Kuriyama, who was called "the first Japanese intellectual coach". Later, coach Kuriyama became the head coach of the Japanese national team. At the WBC(WorldBaseballClassic) held in March this year, he led the outstanding players of Otani Xiangping to win the championship.

At that time, Coach Kuriyama was very supportive of Shohei Ohtani’s dream, and even praised his ability as a "two-knife flow"-usually, when Japanese samurai confronted each other, everyone used a knife, but Shohei Ohtani had both the throwing and hitting knives, so he was called "two-knife flow" by Coach Kuriyama. It didn’t take long for the word "two knives" to become a buzzword in Japan.

In Japanese, the expression similar to the meaning of "two knives" also includes "two pairs of sandals", that is, doing one’s job from nine to five in the morning and doing sideline work after work or on rest days in the evening. This behavior is called "wearing two pairs of sandals" by the Japanese.

However, in real life, neither "two knives" nor "wearing two pairs of sandals" is a compliment. This is because in the traditional Japanese values, the concept of "not serving two monarchs (samurai can’t be loyal to two monarchs at the same time)" and "those who chase two rabbits will lose (those who chase two rabbits at the same time will not get one)" has long been deeply rooted.

Therefore, Shohei Ohtani is under great pressure. However, he finally withstood all the pressure and became a bright star in Japanese professional baseball. In the 2016 season four years later, he led the team to win the national championship in Japan.

According to the baseball agreement signed between Japan and the United States, players who have played in the Japanese professional baseball league for five years can transfer to the American professional baseball league. According to this agreement, coach Kuriyama sent Shohei Ohtani to the American professional baseball team "los angeles angels" in 2018.

At the beginning of Shohei Ohtani’s transfer, the American media made harsh comments. If you borrow the above-mentioned German media, it is "I want to be Messi and Neuer. Is there something wrong with my brain?"

In fact, it is only natural that the American media "bad-mouthed" Shohei Ohtani. After all, since the end of World War II, although the general environment of baseball has been improved, no American baseball player is willing to make such an earth-shattering attempt. Shohei Ohtani, on the other hand, insisted on his "two-knife flow" in the United States.

In 2021, Shohei Ohtani’s capabilities broke out in an all-round way. As a batter, he hit 46 home runs; As a pitcher, he achieved a record of 9 wins and 2 losses and struck out 156 times, which perfectly achieved "the combination of Messi and Neuer". In the end, he won the MVP award that year.

In 2022, Shohei Ohtani continued the excellent state of last season, hitting 34 home runs as a batter and 15 wins and 9 losses as a pitcher. The reason why the loss as a pitcher has increased is mainly because los angeles angels was originally a weak team. Therefore, Shohei Ohtani always gives people the feeling of being alone in the team.

In March this year, the curtain of the new season of the American Professional Baseball League opened, and 30 teams will play 162 games. By July 9th, all the games in the first half of the season had ended, and Shohei Ohtani was striding forward to rewrite the history of American professional baseball.

As a batter, he is far ahead with 32 home runs. Hit rate is 0.302, ranking sixth. RBI 71, ranked second. 7 wins and 4 losses as a pitcher. Strike out 132 times, ranking third. If he has the same wonderful performance in the second half of the season, then he will definitely win the MVP for the second time.

At the moment, there are two things about Shohei Ohtani that have attracted much attention:

One is his annual salary next year. This year, Shohei Ohtani’s annual salary is 30 million US dollars (about 220 million yuan). If the sponsorship contract is added, it is said that it can reach more than 60 million US dollars (about 430 million yuan).

However, Shohei Ohtani will have the right to choose teams freely from next year. Therefore, his annual salary may reach 100 million US dollars (about 720 million yuan). At present, the highest annual salary of professional baseball players in the United States is 43 million US dollars (about 310 million yuan) for pitchers and 40 million US dollars (about 290 million yuan) for batters. Otani is both a pitcher and a batter, so his annual salary is at least the sum of the two.

Second, it is his marriage problem. Shohei Ohtani is 29 years old this year, but he has never mentioned his other half. When the team went on an expedition to new york in April this year, the local media asked him, "What do you think of new york at night?" His answer turned out to be "not very clear, because I have never been out of the hotel."

Therefore, it is said that many Japanese actresses, models and anchors are now coveting the throne of "Otani Xiangping’s wife". In American baseball fields, there are even white women holding "Be my boyfriend!" in the audience. Posters cheer for him.

Personally, I think the most remarkable thing about him lies in his personality and humanity. If there is rubbish on the site, he will immediately pick it up and put it into his pocket; If there is dust splashing on the opponent’s body, he will come forward and wipe it off with his hand; No matter how tired he is in training and competition, he will sign autographs for fans on the sidelines. Not only that, he has never lost his temper on the court. No one knows what great achievements this Japanese treasure will make in the future. I just hope that he can stay away from injuries and be safe and smooth.

1:0,5:1! Sad night in football: Gunner Bayern Barcelona lost, Milan won, and Manchester City won.

From the evening of May 20th to the early morning of 21st, Beijing time, the five major leagues in Europe launched the latest round of competition.

Arsenal upset Manchester City to defend the Premier League title ahead of schedule; Liverpool struggled to get 1 point and basically bid farewell to the Champions League; Bayern lost the first place in the league.

Liverpool 1: 1 Villa

Recently, Liverpool has won seven consecutive victories in the league and continued to retain the hope of competing for the Champions League seat. However, in this round, Liverpool was stubbornly attacked by Villa who also competed for the European seat. Konate sent a penalty in the first half, but Watkins missed the penalty directly, but in the 27th minute, Liverpool still lost the ball, Douglas-Lewis crossed the right rib, and Ramsey pushed the ball from the back of the penalty area to break the deadlock. The backward Liverpool immediately counterattacked, but there was no bright spot on the offensive end. In the second half, klopp directly changed into jota and firmino, thus changing into four strikers.

In the 89th minute, Uncle Zha’s change of array finally paid off. Elliot divided the ball to the right, Salah crossed the outside instep, and firmino hit the front point successfully, 1: 1! It is worth mentioning that this is firmino’s farewell game at Anfield, and he will officially leave Liverpool at the end of the season. The Red Army, which scored only one point, has a high probability of missing the Champions League next season, and Manchester United and Newcastle only need one point to completely lock in the top four.

Bournemouth 0-1 Manchester United

Liverpool struggled to draw with Villa, which made Manchester United see the opportunity. Against Bournemouth, who had already relegated ahead of schedule, the Red Devils successfully scored 3 points. In the 9th minute of the first half, Eriksson picked the ball from the left to the restricted area, and Seneximen’s error in clearance turned into an own goal. casemiro then inserted a golden hook that turned around at close range to meet the ball and scored the only goal in the whole game. Manchester United, which has scored 3 points, has tied the third Newcastle, and at the same time, it is one more round than Liverpool. As long as the remaining two rounds score 1 point, Manchester United can return to the Champions League.

Nottingham Forest 1: 0 Arsenal

After losing to Brighton in the last round, it is difficult for Arsenal to continue to pose a threat to Manchester City. Even if they lose to Nottingham Forest in this round, Manchester City will win the championship three rounds ahead of schedule. As the saying goes, when facing the forest, the gunman was in no state in the whole game. Arteta changed into three defenders, which directly led to no threat on the offensive end, and the defense was also full of loopholes. In the 19th minute, Odegard made a mistake in the frontcourt return, Gibbs White successfully broke the ball and pushed forward the counter-attack direct pass on the spot. Avonii grabbed the shot into the net before Ramsdale attacked and scored the only goal in the whole game.

Due to the failure to score 3 points, the Gunners were still 4 points behind Manchester City in two rounds. For this reason, the Blue Moon locked the Premier League title three rounds ahead of schedule before playing this round. This is Guardiola’s third consecutive championship in the Premier League and the fifth time that the Blue Moon won the championship in six years.

Bayern 1: 3 Leipzig Red Bull

As the defending champions of the League, Bayern’s situation is much worse than that of Manchester City. In the past, the Bundesliga champion in every year was basically Bayern’s bag. However, Nandawang’s state fluctuated this season, and the introduction of new aid such as Mane failed to integrate into the team. It was even more controversial to dismiss nagel Mann, and tuchel failed to improve Bayern’s state in time after taking office. In this round, against Red Bull Leipzig, which is aiming for the Champions League seat, Bayern took the lead in the first half by Gnabry, and the situation changed suddenly in the second half. Bayern lost three goals in a bizarre crash in 20 minutes. First, Lemor pushed and shot to equalize the score, pawar and Mazravi sent out penalty gifts one after another, Nkunku and Szoboszlai took penalty kicks respectively, and Bayern suffered a 1-3 reversal and lost. As long as Dortmund takes all 3 points in this round, Bayern will hand over the first position in the league.

AC Milan 5:1 Sampdoria

Bayern still has a glimmer of hope for the title. Milan, as the defending champion of Serie A, withdrew from the title race early, and may not even participate in the Champions League next season. The Rossoneri recently suffered a four-game losing streak and suffered a direct double-line rout. They not only handed over the initiative to compete for the title, but also were eliminated by Inter Milan in the semi-final of the Champions League. In this round, facing the demoted Sampdoria, the Mariners unfortunately became the vent. In the first half, Leo took the lead in breaking the deadlock and Quagliarella equalized the score. In the 23rd minute, Diaz sent an assist again, and Gill headed the ball beyond the score again. Six minutes later, Leo made another penalty, and Gill scored twice.

In the second half, Tonali assisted Diaz to add icing on the cake, and Leo sent an assist to help Gill complete a hat trick. This is the first time in Milan’s two seasons that a player has scored three goals in a single game. Milando, which scored 3 points, was 1 point behind Lazio, which ranked fourth in the first round. If you want to be in the top four, you need the Biancocelesti to continue to lose points.

Barcelona 1:2 Royal Society

Barcelona, who just won the championship in the last round, returned to the home court to face the Royal Society. Unexpectedly, it was smashed by the "social brother". Only 5 minutes after the opening, Comte was accidentally intercepted with the ball in the backcourt. Sollott stole the ball and then pushed back and made a selfless cross into the restricted area. merino pushed and broke the deadlock without being watched.
