Abstract ( 370 )
Based on the concept of "resilient city", the paper constructs an idea of resilient urban public space and explains its connotation and characteristics. Combined with the anti-epidemic measures of various countries in the COVID-19, it summarizes a system of "technical resilience-institutional resilience" of urban public space. It is shown that the technical resilience depends on healthy planning interventions, including integrating the health impact assessment into the whole process of planning, improving the planning of urban emergency service capacity, establishing a resilient public space system made up of "hub-nodeemergency flow", and coordinating the emergency space of "integration of peace and epidemic". Moreover, urban public space's institutional resilience depends on sound and smart social governance, including establishing the emergency response system, matching the emergency responsibilities, rights, capabilities of grass-roots communities, improving laws and regulations and other policy tools, and applying intelligent platforms for prevention and control. Technical resilience and institutional resilience can establish a new paradigm for urban public spaces to respond to public health emergencies.

Abstract ( 295 )
The threat of public emergencies in Chinese rural areas should arouse the whole society to a high degree of vigilance. The resilience of the rural settlements is an important ability to resist public emergencies. Based on the concepts of rural ecological resilience, economic resilience and social resilience, this article expounds the type characteristics of rural public ecological emergencies, economic emergencies and social emergencies, proposes that in the current national land and space planning, village planning should comprehensively consider the response strategies for rural public emergencies, emphasizing the planning and coordination of ecological space, production space and living space. It is necessary to combine rural emergency self-rescue with prevention and control. The improvement of the resilience of rural settlements is the constructional goal of village planning, so as to provide a guarantee for the sustainable development of rural settlements. On this basis, this paper constructs a theoretical framework for the relationship among "resilience of rural settlements", "rural public emergency" and "village planning" to guide village planning and rural constructional actions.

Abstract ( 292 )
The COVID-19 is the major public health event that has the fastest speed of transmission, the most extensive infection and the most difficult control and prevention since the founding of new China. Summarizing this public health incident, we can find that technology has played a supporting role in many areas but it also has shown its weaknesses and shortcomings. During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, the innovation-driven national strategy and the construction of the national public health system will provide greater opportunities and new higher requirements for the development of our country's science and technology. How to further leverage the support of science and technology in major public health emergencies and how to carry forward scientific spirit are of great significance. Specifically, we should adhere to the value orientation of "people-centered" and promote the scientific literacy of the whole people in the popularization of science as well as increase reform and innovation in the scientific and technological system and mechanism.

Abstract ( 260 )
Titanium-based photocatalytic materials are synthesized to measure the photocatalytic activity against ochratoxin A (OTA) and the degradation products of OTA after photocatalysis are identified. The NaYF4:Yb, Tm nanoparticles coated with anatase TiO 2 (NaYF4:Yb,Tm@TiO2) are synthesized by hydrolysis of the titanium precursor to form a core-shell composite. The synthesized composite are characterized by TEM, XRD, UV-Vis DRS and FL. Under UV-Vis-NIR (200~2500 nm) irradiation, NaYF 4:Yb,Tm@TiO2 have a photocatalytic degradation effect and result in production of strong oxidizing free radicals, which can effectively degrade the OTA. After further optimization, the optimum loading of catalyst is found to be 10 mg/mL. Under pH of 6.2 and 500 W xenon lamp (light source), the photocatalytic degradation efficiency of 5 μg/mL OTA can reach up to 98.7% after 30 min. This photocatalytic reaction follows the first-order kinetics. Two products C11H9O5Cl and C19H17ClNO4 are formed during the OTA degradation, which have been assessed by ultraperformance liquid chromatography/quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry, the mass-to-charge ratios (m/z) are 256.015 and 360.061, respectively. The present study may open a new avenue to degrade other toxin.

Abstract ( 285 )
The effects of starch with different amylose/amylopectin ratios on the microstructure and properties of starch/agar composite films prepared by casting method are studied. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) observation, Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FTIR) test, X-ray diffraction (XRD) test, mechanical property test and hydrophilic and hydrophobic property test are carried out. The microstructures and properties of starch/agar composite films with different ratios are compared. Results show that the value of elongation at break of waxy/agar composite film is lower than the other two when the agar content is fixed. With the increase of agar content, the tensile strength of each composite film increases, and the water contact angle of G50/agar composite film increases significantly, while the weak hydrophilicity of agar reduces the hydrophilicity of the composite film surface.
