The paper surveys the long years of contact between Islam and the West and shows how, despite the long years of contact and interactions, the relationship has continued to remain sour, not so cordial and often replete with conflict, clashes and at times, wars and bloodshed. The paper surveys this age-old relation and shows how it is punctuated by animosity, mutual distrust, bigotry, fear and uneasy calm. The Paper concludes by debunking the treachery, the sinister motives as well as the pathological hatred of anything Muslim and Islamic that is often exhibited by the West on the nation of Islam.</p> Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 02 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0800 Eco-Translatology Perspective on the English Translation of Subtitles in the Documentary Eight Hundred Years of Chu State <p class="text"><span lang="EN-US">Based on the concept of translational eco-environment, oriental ecological wisdom, and the Darwinian principle of natural selection, the concepts of eco-translatology and relevant theoretical ideas were proposed and explained by Professor Hu Gengshen from 2001 on. This interdisciplinary theory of translation studies and ecology considers translation as a translator's adaptation and selection activities, and its translation methods include the linguistic, cultural, and communication aspects. <em>Eight Hundred Years of Chu State</em> is a large-scale documentary about Chu culture. It systematically tells about the great history of the 800 years of Chu State, interpreting the brilliant and splendid civilization of Chu with its magnificent cultural relics, and revealing the laws worth pondering behind its ups and downs. Taking as examples the Chinese-English subtitle translations of the documentary <em>Eight Hundred Years of Chu State</em>, this paper aims to take the interdisciplinary theoretical perspective of eco-translatology to explore its implications for documentary translation from the linguistic, cultural, and communicative dimensions. Aiming also to improve the English translation of Chinese-made documentaries to a higher level, this paper hopes to promote the spread of Chinese traditional culture, especially Jingchu culture, and to enhance the world's understanding of China and its splendid culture.</span></p> Zhang Shuyue, Wang Feng ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 25 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0800 Study on Internet of Things Industry Based on Patent Data <p>Based on patent database, this article conducts patent analysis from patent applications, IPC technical field distribution, the main research institutions of the Internet of Things to reveal the development trend, technical hotspots, leading enterprises, technology leaders, also maps current technology patents, and access to essential strategic information and innovation.
