The computer revolution began with the advent of the World Wide Web developed at CERN, France. Since then, the world has seen a rapid transformation in technology. Over the course of our lifetime, several technologies and products have become obsolete, replaced by new competent mechanisms across the spectrum. And a recent technological development that has taken the medical world by storm is 3D printing.

3D printing is part of a family of manufacturing technologies called additive manufacturing. This describes creating an object by adding material to the object layer by layer. The 3D printing process begins with the production of a graphic model of the object to be printed. These are usually designed using computer-aided design (CAD) software packages, and this can be the most laborious part of the process. One of the main advantages of 3D printing is that it allows rapid prototyping of almost anything. The only real limit to its use is your imagination.

Some objects are simply too complex to be created in a more traditional manufacturing or prototyping process like CNC milling or molding. It is also much cheaper than many other traditional manufacturing methods. After design, the next phase is to digitally cut the model to get it for printing. The slicing process breaks up the model into multiple layers. Each layer’s design is then sent to the printhead to be printed or deposited in order.

Once the slicer program has taken effect, the data is then sent to the printer for the final step. From there, the 3D printer itself takes over. It will start printing the model according to the specific instructions of the slicer program using different methods, depending on the type of printer used. So, after a brief overview of the presented process, let’s dive deeper into the use of 3D printing in medical sciences, with a focus on orthopedics.

According to a study published in the Global Health Journal, 3D models made by 3D printing reduce medical part development costs and surgical planning time. The integration of 3D printing with orthopedics helps to meticulously recognize and understand the problem and ensures a greater guarantee of success in operations. This technology can allow doctors/surgeons to design, produce, recreate and plan operations more accurately, thoroughly and economically. 3D models can help specialists visually understand patient-specific pathology and life structures. Innovation in 3D printing has launched a model for virtual contouring and performing medical procedures.

The most significant opportunity for 3D printing in orthopedics is that it helps design precise anatomical shapes and suggests that permeable bone substitute platforms can be incorporated into patient implants. It takes into account the natural bone growth, guaranteeing the stability of the implant over the long term.

Some of the avenues in which 3D printing offers significant help are listed below by the author:

Trauma case
Orthopedic medical procedure often encounters hurdles in cases of large essential wounds with different bone discontinuity, and in those with bone deformities, X-rays are regularly used for orthopedic surgeries, but they lack 3D degree data. exact bone imperfections. Here, 3D printing can be used successfully in these cases as it uses a 3D model that gives specific results/data required.

Surgical planning
3D printing models are often used to aid the surgical planning process for restorative osteotomies, with the specific end goal of gaining more educational insight into vital systems and improving organizational detail, especially in the cases of minimally intrusive medical procedures. It produces an exact duplicate model of the organ/body part influenced by the patient, which can be viewed and felt. Various printed models of the hip, knee and shoulder can be used to create the specific custom design of the injured part and used as patient specific implants.

Surgical verification with reverse engineering
Another use of 3D printing is to identify orthoses using reverse engineering assistance with 3D scanners. This approach allows for a consistent fit to the patient’s living systems and streamlines the choice of plan and materials.

Custom tools and parts
The use of physical models for treatment organization and perception, rather than the sole use of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) information or virtual redesign, allows the physician to image different areas of the human body with greater precision.

Other benefits
AM decreases lead time by allowing changes to be made to an item sooner than expected. Rapid prototyping (RP) enables the engineering, manufacturing, and assembly of items on time in the planned procedure, with the goal of correcting the misstep and making changes while they are still economical. Dr. Vikas Gupta, Consultant, Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery (Orthopaedics) at Max Hospitals, cites the example of tumor removal procedure to highlight the benefits of 3D printing: “When Tumor removal, traditional methods of using a cast take time during which time the tumor can grow in size.3D printing effectively solves this problem as the process is fast.

Innovation in 3D printing can be used to improve the accuracy of specialist systems (operating procedures). Even a few printing technologies can produce mechanical bones, human tissues and organs used directly to manufacture in the patient’s body. Printing particular personalized gadgets for patients can be used to ensure ideal screw direction and integration layout with insignificant presentation.

Procedures such as modeling and pre-contouring an acetabular fracture Recon plate are fabricated using 3D printing. The result shows an improvement in surgical results and a reduction in overall surgical time. In another case, 3D printed jigs are used for total knee arthroplasty, which helps improve overall performance.

“Beyond cost-effective and time-saving items, 3D printing enables the creation of patient-specific products, allowing for a wide range of modifications to meet the needs of each patient. Additionally, 3D printing can be used in remote areas because it only requires the printer and the hardware, eliminating the need to carry expensive and bulky equipment,” explains the author. The benefits promised by 3D printing are numerous. However, as the most modern technologies, its use has some limitations, as shown below:

Cleaning limits
The shape opportunity of 3D printing brings new challenges to implant designers and producers. Designers and manufacturers should consider instrument cleaning prerequisites and incorporate them into the planning phase, as the enormous geometric flexibility can make cleaning demands even more difficult.

Limitation of bio-printable materials
Cutting-edge 3D printing, especially for creating implantable biomedical gadgets, is severely limited by printable materials. Thus, elective material manipulation techniques are needed to deal with materials that are not effectively printable.

Government guidelines, standardization and regulatory limits
The institutionalization of 3D printing is an ongoing process. Today, administrative offices are getting to grips with advances in 3D printing. However, they still presumably dictate 3D printing – from the particular necessities of catering gadget makers until such time as recognized standards are adopted and perceived by administrative experts.

Limitation of biodegradability and toxicity
Material degradation is an important issue in 3D stages. The use of degraded materials can lead to hypoxia and acidosis within the systems. Entry of acid debasement depends on the level of acidosis, which can damage seeded cells as well as impacted cells.

Whatever the limitations of this technology, 3D printing is set to revolutionize surgical procedures. Leading luminaries in the medical fraternity have voiced their support for the use of 3D printing. The possibilities promised are staggering and 3D printing can provide a much higher success rate than other existing technologies. And if the trajectory of technological advancements is any indication, it’s safe to say that the mechanical limitations of 3D printing will soon be overcome.

Considering the future of this technology, Dr. Gupta says: “Biological ink and matrix are becoming more and more prevalent. And cells can be made to grow into the biological matrix, including stem cells. So, soon, organs could also be printed, giving a great boost to the medical fraternity. Long wait times for organ transplants will soon be a thing of the past. Thus, 3D printing offers several advantages and will soon be an indispensable technology in the medical fraternity.

The Court finds that the accessibility of the website does not require 100% compliance

If you have ever received a formal notice alleging that your company’s website is not accessible to the blind or visually impaired, it is likely that the plaintiff’s attorney has attached a report outlining a number of errors in accessibility on the website. This is not surprising since most, if not all, major websites are susceptible to errors. But while some errors may affect a blind or partially sighted person’s ability to navigate the website, others may not. A question that has not been addressed before by any court, however, is whether 100% accessibility is necessary to avoid liability under the ADA. A California district court recently ruled not. This is complicated by the fact that there are no regulations issued by the government regarding the standard of accessibility to consider. By default, the few courts that have required a company to ensure that its website is accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired using assistive technology have consulted the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

H&M sued over sustainability claims

Sustainability continues to be a hot topic in the fashion industry, both in advertisements and in the lawsuits related to those advertisements. Last month, a plaintiff filed a proposed class action lawsuit against H&M arguing that the company makes various misrepresentations about the durability of its products. The lawsuit appears to be prompted by a June 28, 2022 article published in Quartz with the results of an investigation which reportedly found that “H&M showed customers environmental rating sheets for its clothing which were misleading and, in many cases, downright misleading”.

The FTC’s Privacy Rulemaking: Broad and Extensive, But It’s Unlikely to Result in a Rule Anytime Soon

On August 11, the FTC finally launched its “Commercial Surveillance and Data Security” regulations after several months of hype and speculation about the FTC’s ability to respect consumer privacy through its regulator.” Mag-Moss”. He did this by issuing (by 3/2 votes) an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) – the first stage of Mag-Moss regulation – and holding a press conference with President Khan, Commissioners Slaughter and Bedoya and senior FTC officials. .

California Attorney General’s First CCPA Settlement Sends Strong ‘Signals’ Regarding Do Not Sell Law Enforcement

Warning that “[t]there are no more excuses,” the California Attorney General announced on August 24, the first public settlement under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The settlement order, which the court approved the same day, requires beauty retailer Sephora, Inc., to pay a civil penalty of $1.2 million to resolve allegations that the company did not disclose to consumers that it was selling their personal information and did not address consumer requests to opt out of the sale by offering a “Do Not Sell My Personal Data” Information or through global privacy controls The order also requires Sephora to implement, evaluate and report on a CCPA compliance program, in addition to other injunctive conditions.

CPRA Update: What is an “entrepreneur?” »

The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), effective January 1, 2023, adds “processors” to the list of entities a company can entrust with customer data. So what is an “entrepreneur?” And how are “processors” different from other entities described by California privacy law, such as “service providers” or “third parties”?

NAD advises better disclosures for claim #1

Twilio announces that its customer data platform is the “#1 CDP” and reveals that the claim is based on 2020 market share as measured by International Data Corporation. Adobe disputed the claim, arguing, in part, that the 2020 IDC report does not reflect the current landscape and, even if it did, Twilio’s disclosures were insufficient. NAD’s analysis includes advice for anyone looking to make #1 claims.

TINA.org calls for investigation of Hello Fresh

TINA.org recently announced that it has filed complaints with the FTC and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, urging them to investigate Hello Fresh’s marketing practices related to a campaign advertising “free” meals in order to to encourage consumers to take out a subscription. The complaints relate to a number of issues that we post about frequently, including auto-renewals, “dark patterns” and the use of influencers. Here are some important points.

NAD fulfills Saturday night hair claims

My law office photo was taken on a Tuesday morning, but I’ve always complained that the photographer wasn’t available to take it on a weekend, which would have given me a better opportunity to showcase my Saturday night hair. In case you think this is something that only worries me, know that questions related to the ease of creating such an enviable hairstyle recently made their way into an advertising dispute between Dyson and SharkNinja.

One of the problems with Axios-ese is that it does not take into account that information is not read, but skimmed, a phenomenon long before the World Wide Web. “People don’t read the morning paper,” wrote Tom Wolfe, paraphrasing Marshall McLuhan, in 1975. “They slip into it like a hot bath.” What Wolfe meant was that readers generally don’t engage in critical thinking while reading the newspaper because they skim through it too quickly. If you’re used to reading newspapers, you’re used to skimming whether you’re reading in print or online.

Now comes VandeHei to compress the news with hyperbole and bullet points and “what’s next” and (most boring) “be smart”, and the damn thing can’t be skimmed because it’s already been skimmed for you – pre-chewed, if you will – by the writer. Which means you have to to slow down. Scroll through an Axios story and it will pass by so quickly you won’t know what it’s saying. you must read carefully grasp its basic meaning. Then you have to waste even more time trying to figure out how much to cut for the hype. Sometimes I have to read an Axios article two or three times to understand what it is saying. A New York Times history that I can digest with a simple glance.

There are other practical issues with the format, which I’ve learned over my last few months at Politics (my vertical wasn’t generating enough revenue and was eventually shut down) when we started experimenting with a news model that no one was allowed to call an Axios knockoff because it was obvious it was just that. If you force your reporter to include captions such as “what’s next” and “why this matters” in every story, then you are forcing that reporter to say what is the next step and why it is important. And with an extremely fast turnaround for those short stories – I have to beat Bloomberg! – there is a good chance that your journalist does not have time to find out what’s next and why it’s important. Thus, the reporter produces gibberish that cannot be proven to be false and wastes the reader’s time simply to adhere to a rigid model.

Going to a show not knowing what it’s about isn’t too different from being on a blind date: 1) It can start off shaky, even horrifying, and end happily; 2) it can start strong but end up going astray; 3) it can be incredibly stellar from first to last moment; or 4) it can start depressingly in a horrible mode and never recover (where an obvious rescue call is needed). I saw the small-scale musical, FIRST DATE, at the Carrollwood Cultural Center last night without knowing much about it; guess which of the above scenarios matches my experience?

PREMIER RENDEZ-VOUS, with music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner and a book of Austin Winsberg, centers on an awkward blind date between two New Yorkers, the nerdy Aaron and the “artistic” Casey. We follow every disastrous and heartfelt moment of their meeting, from the not so positive first impressions of each other, to that reward break where neither knows what to say, to the moment they receive the dinner check, all leading up to the end of the evening, where perhaps a hopeful kiss awaits. It’s a sometimes incisive, sometimes cute, sometimes edgy musical with a few funny bits and lots of heart.

I went to the FIRST DATE relatively blind; I had seen and heard some of the songs performed at Thespian festivals in the past, but otherwise I came with no preconceived ideas. And of the scenarios above, #1 comes closest to my reactions. The show started off pretty shaky, a rocky, rough start, where the first song, a group number called “The One”, just wasn’t enough for me. The red flags went off; had I left for a disastrous evening of the theater? Some other songs didn’t work out later on the show, including “C’est quoi tu m’aimes”, which sadly sounded like screaming off-night karaoke at the Brass Tap after a few glasses of too much green tea.

Things get a little more grounded when we meet Aaron and Casey, though Winsberg’s dialogue seems too sit-commy and forced for my tastes. But something miraculous happened during the show. I suddenly got invested in the story of these two flawed individuals and started to enjoy it to the fullest. For the first twenty minutes or so, I wondered if the show could ever survive its shaky start, but not only did it recover from a rocky start, it soared. PREMIER RENDEZ-VOUS has become moving and funny and sincere and authentic, everything we expect from an evening at the theatre. Although inconsistent, the production ultimately won me over.

The cast is overall wonderful.

In the role of Aaron with glasses, a BDV (“Blind Date Virgin”), Craig Ruska appears as a synthesis of Seymour Krelborn, J. Pierrepont Finch and the actor Charles Martin Black-smith. Dressed somewhat “douchey” in a coat and tie (the tie was later removed), Ruska has crisp comedic timing and superior vocal chops, and while it’s not a naturalistic performance, she is quite effective and entertaining. We’re rooting for him, even when the character makes cringe-worthy mistakes that make his date – and the audience – quite uncomfortable. Ruska’s duet on “The Things I Never Said,” with his real wife, Erin Ruska playing his mother, will bring tears to your eyes.

Kara Doyle is wonderful, with a wonderful singing voice, as Aaron’s blind date, Kara, a young woman used to dating bad boys. However, she continues to be described as “artistic”, but nothing in her demeanor or attire suggests this “artistic” persona (we learn later that she works in a gallery). Plus, early on, when Aaron calls her a BDS — a “blind date bitch” — she just sits there, not really reacting. I’m sorry, but if at the start of a date someone suggests that you’re a slut, you’d probably respond with warmth, perhaps even getting up to leave.

Mr. Ruska and Mrs. Doyle are a lovely couple, and we love them both very much, mainly because it’s not just that we know them…it’s because we are their. (And if you’re a “Quantum Leap” fan, then this is the show for you.)

Erin Ruska and Ashley Whitting shine in a variety of roles, from Aaron’s Jewish grandmother (Ms. Ruska) to his hurtful ex, Allison (Ms. Whiting). Mackley Fogarty and Chris Kadonsky-Grant are strong actors with wild energy in various parts, but their voice acting in some numbers isn’t their forte. Grant Sparr appears on the spot for some much-needed energy, appearing as Reggie, Casey’s “bailout” call in case his date fails. Sparr is electric on stage, something of an entertainer’s spark plug (or maybe we should label him a Sparr Plug).

Marcus Blake stands out as a waiter who comments on the actions of first dates, his “I Order Love” one of the highlights of the night. And his use of puppets at one point is a funny laugh (watch the show to see why there’s a puppet in the middle of this production). His deep voice is off the charts, and without him in some of the band’s numbers, it could tip over to being unlistenable.

Musical director Michelle Kadonsky-Grant leads the tight group on stage which includes Catherine Baker on piano, Rusty Wirt on bass and Kevin Adair on drums. A choreographer is mentioned in the program (Devan Bittinger), but there doesn’t seem to be much dancing in this show.

Ultra-talented director Keith Eisenstadt, with the help of his assistant director, Rhett Ricardo, deftly leads the way and makes the most of his small cast. After the aforementioned difficult opening, I really settled in and enjoyed the evening he created. There are some brilliant touches, including the server listing upcoming shows as menu items and specials. But there were also some pacing issues, including a long, far too long pause at the start (suddenly I thought I was watching a pantomime rather than a musical). Also, I would like to see a list of songs in the program; if that happened Lease Where the sound of music, shows we all know, so no song list is needed. But most people don’t know FIRST DATE, so a song list would be very helpful for us beginners.

At one point in the series, when Aaron admits to playing Dolly Levi in ​​an all-male production of Hello Dolly! he says his performances have been called “eerily convincing”. This is a description that also matches FIRST DATE: Curiously convincing. And yet, it speaks to so many people who have gone on blind dates or are still in the dating pool. It’s a musical that captures the zeitgeist of the past decade but still speaks to us today, especially the song about the dangers of online dating and social media (“The World Wide Web Is Forever” ). There are joys and frustrations brought to light in the show, just as there are in life. FIRST DATE does indeed have an edge – it reflects modern times, so it better have some bite – but there’s also a dandy sweetness and a tonnage of wit that will leave you smiling.

FIRST DATE plays at the Carrollwood Cultural Center through September 25.

After more than a year away from WWE, Braun Strowman returned to the September 5 edition of Raw.

He may not have been at the top of fans’ wishlist of the people they hoped Triple H would bring back when he took over the creative and talented relationships Strowman gives WWE a needed threat in the upper scene. of the mid-card and the main event. And getting a call to come back to the one company he said he’d always wanted to fight for meant a lot to Braun.

As he told Corey Graves and Vic Joseph on this week after the bell podcast:

“Even though I don’t want to admit it because I’m supposed to be this big, giant, tough monster, I had to swallow my emotions. It was really, really hard to stay in character. I heard that roar, I heard the place peeling off. Look, I just gave myself goosebumps thinking about it. I’m home…

“I cried when I came back through the curtain. Once I got away from everyone, I was finally able to absorb it and let it in.

We’re having fun with ole Girthy McBigPants here on the World Wide Web, and his catches often aren’t great! But he’s been open about his mental health journey, and being honest about how a huge night in his career hit him is pretty cool, too.

Away from WWE, Strowman dabbled in a few freelance appearances, working under his real name (Adam Scherr) and as “The Titan.” It was also to be the cornerstone of EC3’s Control Your Narrative promotion. But honestly, he’s never felt good anywhere other than WWE. Now we don’t have to see him try. As Braun says, he is at home.

What will he do once he completes the tag team powerbombing? We will see.

You can listen to the rest of Strowman’s appearance on after the bell here.

Georgie Carroll: 10 funniest things I’ve ever seen (on the internet) | The comedy https://web-link.biz/georgie-carroll-10-funniest-things-ive-ever-seen-on-the-internet-the-comedy/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 17:30:00 +0000 https://web-link.biz/georgie-carroll-10-funniest-things-ive-ever-seen-on-the-internet-the-comedy/ g‘daytime.

g‘daytime. I am Georgie Carroll or Nurse Georgie, nurse turned actress. I’ve made humans, I’ve saved humans, I’ve written a book and I’m on TV; a pretty helpful person, all things considered.

Here’s my take on the 10 funniest things on the internet. The internet is huge and a lot of it isn’t funny at all, so it was a big job. But I like challenges!

1. Troy Hawke of the Greeters Guild

Ladies, gentlemen and all the glorious entities in between: may I introduce British comedian Milo McCabe, also known as Troy Hawke of the Greeters Guild. Spoiler – there’s no Greeters Guild, but that doesn’t stop Troy from standing outside stores (uninvited) in a tuxedo jacket, cheering people on. I just can’t get past it when it hits my feed. He says he is trying to restore balance to the mood of the general population in a post-pandemic era. There is no one more qualified to encourage you (he started as a psychotherapist).

2) Joe Lycett

Oh! This boy makes my heart sing. He’s a bright, silly adult. The clip above is well-known, but watch any of its clips and you can throw the rest of your day in the trash. He’s ridiculous in real life too: he and I played together at the Sydney Opera House. I was a rookie at the time, overwhelmed by the iconic building and talent in the Green Room: Phill Jupitus, Fern Brady, Lycett himself. I decided not to reveal myself as a comedian and to position myself behind the buffet and pretend to work in the restaurant industry to avoid small talk. Lycett joined me after a while, and we played shop like children do; warned people about the sushi, gave the sausage rolls a history. He’s a real happy man.

3) Football fans show their team where the goal is

Nothing could attract me less than team sport. I’m a lone wolf, I can’t stand the thought of having to depend on a dozen other people working together to define my success. What I like in team sports, and in particular in European football, is the public. As a comedian, I know the value of an engaged audience.

The Brits shine brightest when they lose. The best songs are made when a fan’s unequivocal belief that their team can win is accompanied by desperation when it can’t. Simmer that sentiment in copious amounts of beer for a decade or more and you have a recipe for wonderfully fun crowd performances.

4) Internet Comedy: Animal Facts

Sketching at its most delicious. This troop of bold, crazy idiots aren’t big on facts unless they’re talking about animals. There are plenty on their website and on TikTok, so start with this video – if you hate it, cancel the mission as each click gets weirder. They will tickle parts of your brain that you haven’t used in a while.

5) My mother

Although technically not someone I want you to follow on the internet, my mom is by far the funniest thing when she’s there. She’s not an unintelligent woman, but there are huge gaps in her learning when it comes to technology. Google Maps always sends it the “wrong way”; somehow, the voicemails sent from her phone and in her voice end up on other people’s phones without her sending them; she pedantically capitalizes email addresses; and she wondered – out loud – if Australia’s WORLD WIDE WEB works in England! It is not surprising that the catfish targets the mature woman.

(If you are a catfish now looking for my mother, back off, I will destroy you. Also, she has not yet managed to transfer money online, so although she is a very loving woman , it will be a fruitless financial effort. )

6) Michel Palascak

In stand up, there’s the writing, and then there’s the performance. This guy nails both. Christian comedy is a huge subculture within stand-up. Their audience is huge – I almost wish I was part of it for that reason. Some Christian comedies can cringe even with progressive audiences, but this Catholic good boy is clean, smart, dark and, above all, funny.

7) Ava Ryan

I have two sons. Sometimes they ask me which is my favorite child, and I tell them Ava Ryan. She is still young, so her funny ones are published on her mother Katie’s channel. I’ve been following this half-pint comedic prodigy since she was three, when she went viral for the catchphrases “I smell like beef” and “Frikken bat.” Now, at 12, she’s more moxie and funny than most adults I’ve met. I can’t wait to see what she becomes. We should all quit comedy when it fully blossoms.

8) Good liars

Comedy journalists Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig find some of America’s most impassioned far-right and ask them extremely basic questions to expose the guts resonating in QAnon’s echo chamber. The guys are charming and respectful while causing a decent amount of disruption and enlightenment at rallies and political events. That’s how I get my American news, while laughing and gawking at the United States of some people’s brains.

9) James Donald Forbes McCann

A South Australian-based comic philosopher, McCann has a quirky brain full of out-of-the-box thoughts. You could follow him on Insta where he feels good, but you’ll like him more on YouTube. His best work is the James Donald Forbes McCann Catamaran Plan, his podcast where he plays a husband and father hoping to raise enough money to fund his dream of owning a catamaran, through podcasting. Help a brother who likes boats and listen to him.

10) Hot ones

Now – let’s enjoy! This is a celebrity interview channel where talent is interviewed while being fed increasingly hot chicken wings. If you own teenagers, bring the Hot Ones into the conversation – they won’t say you’re cool, but they will mean it. The show’s creators, Christopher Schonberger and Sean Evans, have huge celebrity appeal and have grilled and fed everyone from Gordon Ramsay to The Rock. Watch this while drinking milk – the wings towards the end seem sore.

The chant of “God Save the Queen” broke out outside the gates of Buckingham Palace on Thursday night. On September 8, Queen Elizabeth II, monarch of the United Kingdom and head of the Commonwealth, was announced dead at the age of 96.

Upon his death, his son Prince Charles immediately became king. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is expected to assume Charles’ title as Prince of Wales.

It marks the end of a historic 70-year reign – the longest of any monarch in British history and the second longest in world history after King Louis XIV of France. Over her nine decades, the Queen had lived through countless defining moments, from the Second World War (she was the only female member of the British Royal Family to serve in the Armed forces), to the decolonization of Africa and the Caribbean, to the invention of the World Wide Web. Ascended to the throne at just 25 years old, she was known for her life of service, dedication and duty.

His reign has also been instrumental in promoting bilateral relations between China and the UK. In fact, Queen Elizabeth was the first British ruler visiting China in 1986, following the agreement that Hong Kong’s sovereignty would be returned to China in 1997. Since his first and only visit to the mainland, China has become one of the biggest trading partners while the UK has “paved the way for China’s relationship with the Western world”, as former Chinese Ambassador to the UK Put the.

Earlier this year, President Xi Jinping bliss the leader over 70 years on the throne as well as 50 years of diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level. “I hope the two sides will take this opportunity to deepen friendship and mutual trust, expand exchanges and cooperation, [and] work together to promote international solidarity.

In China, news of his death began to spread on Weibo. As of two hours into the news, the hashtag “The Queen of England has died” (#英国女王去世#) has received over 230 million views, with netizens leaving comments like “another era has ended” and “She is part of the story.

However, other messages point out that his death comes at a difficult time for the UK. As one Global Times reporter wrote, “She leaves at a time when UK GDP has been overtaken by India, inflation and strikes add to concerns, and the world’s most illiterate Prime Minister has been inaugurated…the UK is not where it is anymore.that was when she ascended the throne.

Indeed, the relationship between London and Beijing have cooled down in the last decade. Britain has gone from friend to fierce critic, lambasting Beijing’s business practices, banning Huawei from joining the UK’s 5G network on spying grounds and boycotting the Beijing Winter Olympics due to alleged human rights violations in Xinjiang. Now the appointment of Liz Truss as Prime Minister – one of the Queen’s latest acts – could heighten tensions as she takes a tougher stance on China.

It remains to be seen what the world will look like without this emblematic leader. His reign opened up a (albeit complicated) friendship with China; perhaps his passing will signify a new chapter in UK-China relations.
