MEXICO CITY, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- A new archaeological find announced on Friday in Mexico attests to China's age-old vocation as an exporting powerhouse.


Mexican archaeologists have uncovered thousands of fragments of a 400-year-old shipment of Chinese ""export-quality porcelain"" that was long buried in the Pacific Coast port of Acapulco.


The shipment of rice bowls, cups, plates and platters dates from the reign of the Ming Dynasty's 13th emperor, Wanli (1572-1620), and is believed to have arrived in Acapulco aboard the China Galleon, which regularly sailed between Asia and the New World.


""During its 250 years of cabotage along the coasts of the Pacific in the Americas, the China Galleon left an indelible trail,"" Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), said in reporting on the find.


In an on-site interview posted on INAH's website, archaeologist Roberto Junco said ""we discovered there were four or five models or styles ... characteristic of a type of ... export-quality porcelain that the Chinese made, mainly in the factories of Jingdezhen, and exported around the world.""


According to Junco, the white-and-blue porcelain, painted with images of birds, beetles, swans, ducks, deer and other depictions of nature, was made in Zhangzhou, capital of south-central Fujian province, and Jingdezhen, in Jiangxi province, which is known as China's ""Porcelain Capital.""


The find, located no more than a meter and a half below ground near Acapulco's Cathedral, in what is known as the Old Quarter, included fragments of a coarser type of ceramic used to make containers for shipping provisions, such as spices and liquids.


Mexico's ports were often targeted by pirates, which could explain why the shipment appears to have been destroyed.


The discovery coincides with an exhibit at Mexico City's Franz Mayer Museum called ""Return Voyage: The China Galleon and the Baroque in Mexico,"" which highlights China's artistic influence on the New World through trade.


While Mexico and China are separated by a great distance, trade ties have linked the two regions for centuries.


The China Galleon regularly sailed between Acapulco, and other Mexican ports, and Manila, in the Philippines, and today's Taiwan, China where it would load up on Chinese spices and silks, and other goods.


Fabricio Antonio Fonseca, a researcher at the prestigious Colegio de Mexico, says the initial encounter between Mexico and China occurred when the galleon first sailed into a Mexican port.


The discovery of new maritime routes linking Asia, the New World and Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries launched an era of unprecedented global trade and cultural exchange.


Evidence even shows that starting in 1565, the return trips to Mexico were manned by Chinese crews, said Fonseca.

Despite critical praise and optimistic tracking Tyler Higbee Jersey , Warner Bros.AlconColumbia's "Blade Runner 2049" has crashed hard at the box office, grossing just $31.5 million in its opening weekend from 4,058 screens against a reported budget of $150 million.


It's a tough fall for the Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel to Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi noir. Before the weekend Jared Goff Jersey , the most conservative tracking estimates had this film matching the $45 million opening earned in 2015 by "Mad Max: Fury Road." Instead, "2049" is falling short even of the "$36.1 million made earlier this year by Scott's "Alien: Covenant," which tanked in subsequent weeks after all the hardcore "Alien" fans saw the film on opening night.


Now signs are already pointing to "2049" suffering a similar fate. After making $12.7 million on Friday Samson Ebukam Jersey , including $4 million from Thursday previews, revenue fell 11 percent on Saturday to $11.4 million. "Blade Runner 2049" is proving to be a very front-loaded film, as the original's cult fanbase packed early screenings while mainstream audiences have been slow to buy tickets.


This in part explains the discrepancy between the film's A- grade on CinemaScore and the lack of word-of-mouth we've seen among mainstream audiences. The CinemaScore demographic breakdown was 71 percent male and 86 percent over the age of 25 Josh Reynolds Jersey , with 63 percent over the age of 35. For a generation of hardcore film buffs -- mostly male -- who remember seeing the original "Blade Runner" in theaters, "2049" was an event release. But for other demos, this film doesn't seem to have struck a chord John Johnson Jersey , even with Ryan Gosling in his first wide release since "La La Land."


This weekend's other new releases also performed below pre-weekend expectations. FoxChernin's "The Mountain Between Us" took second place this weekend with $10.1 million from 3,068 screens against a $35 million budget and pre-weekend projections of $11-13 million. Lionsgate's "My Little Pony: The Movie" came in fourth with $8.8 million from 2,528 screens against projections of $10 million. Both films had an A- on CinemaScore Cooper Kupp Jersey , but "MLP" had a Rotten Tomatoes score of 57 percent while "Mountain" had a 46 percent score.


LONDON, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- The United Kingdom Independence Party Independence Party (UKIP) Friday named Henry Bolton as its new leader, becoming the fourth person to hold the top job in just over a year.


The 54-year-old former soldier and police officer was chosen after a ballot was held by UKIP members.


gg to become leader after his predecessor Paul Nuttall quitted after the poor results in the general election in June.


Bolton gained about 30 percent of the votes Gerald Everett Jersey , ahead of his nearest rival Anne Marie Waters who won over 21 percent.


After the result of the election released at the party's annual conference, Bolton issued a plea urging the members to rally around the party.


"Brexit is our core task. However, it is not the end of the line Todd Gurley II Jersey ," said Bolton in the con.
