In 1898 a tender Englishman walked right into a gay brothel in Peking and commenced a trip that he claims took him all of the strategy to the bedchamber of imperial China's final nice ruler, the Empress Dowager Tz'u Hsi. released now for the 1st time, the debatable memoirs of Sinologist Sir Edmund Backhouse, Décadence Mandchoue, offer a distinct and stunning glimpse into the hidden global of China's imperial palace, with its rampant corruption, grand
conspiracies and uninhibited sexuality. Backhouse used to be made infamous via Hugh Trevor-Roper's 1976 bestseller "Hermit of Peking," which accused Backhouse of fraudulence and forgery. This paintings, written presently prior to the author's dying in 1943, lay for many years forgotten and unpublished within the Bodleian Library at Oxford college, disregarded through Trevor-Roper as not anything greater than “a pornographic novelette." yet Décadence Mandchoue is way greater than that. Alternately stunning and lyrical, it's the masterwork of a linguistic genius; a massive literary success and a sensational account of the internal workings of the Manchu dynasty within the years prior to its cave in in 1911. If precise, Backhouse's chronicle thoroughly reshapes modern historians' realizing of the period, and gives an account of the Empress Dowager and her internal circle that could in simple terms be defined as intimate.

The autocorrelation function of BOC(1,1) and the crosscorrelation function between BOC(1,1) and PRN code are illustrated in Fig. 1. We can get the conclusion from the figure that the autocorrelation’s main peak of BOC(1,1) is sharper than that of the BPSK signal so that the multipath mitigation performance will be improved.
If MEO constellation is used to provide navigation service for high orbit and geostationary users, the difficulties of visibility and GDOP mentioned above will be encountered. Some paper presented that the multi-system compatibility improve the visibility . But space navigation is related with the national security, the multi-system compatibility is limited in this area. Other researchers fix the antenna opposite the earth to serve the high orbit users . However, this solution changes the satellite greatly, and is infeasible.
25 SNR/dB We simulated the bit error ratio (BER) performance of LDPC code used by GPS L1C signal, an optimized result  gives and our result for comparison to verify its performance. , ‘‘1’’ is mapped into ‘‘-1’’ and ‘‘0’’ is mapped into ‘‘1’’, and the channel is assumed to be AWGN. The maximum iteration times is set to 50 for each decoding process. 3 presents their BER performance curves, it’s clearly shown that our result (blue curve) outperforms what  gives (green curve) and is slightly better than GPS L1C scheme when SNR is low, so it can be considered at least meet the performance of GPS L1C.
