Re Tossed in China, tossed in America

2017-01-20T22:22+00:00

If even America can't counterbalance automation (because it just elected idiots), how is China - that is always far behind - going to do it? Examine Northern Europe. Is it in a sacred text somewhere that employees must work 40 or 50 hours during 5 days? If employees cut their hours in half tomorrow ...

The viciousness of 3 male posters against London Girl helps me with my diet: It makes me nauseous and allows me to skip the evening snack. It all re-started with your thread one week ago: The 2 remaining posters were even more bitter than 2-3 years ago. Frankly I was amazed at the rage that they sti...

It's your right to be tired of American news. You are a little like a child, your eyelids are getting heavy. You just want to have a little nap... For those of us who understand the scope of worldwide disruptions that the present American administration has started causing, we want to stay awake, we...



Tossed in China, tossed in America

2017-01-20T21:44+00:00

Most FTs in China who want to be aware of their environment beyond the walls of their classroom probably feel they are being tossed like drift wood in the middle of the forces that are pulling and pushing the Chinese society in opposite directions. The xenophobia that many FTs have to deal with in m...



Re BBC: Why Millions of Chinese Men are Staying Single

2017-01-20T20:20+00:00

There are a few reasons to why men are single anywhere in the world. In China, it truly is for the larger male than female population. My wife, a local, told me that when she was born her dad wanted to exchange her for a male baby in that hospital. This clearly demonstrates how locals have got what ...



Re: China's Environment Ministry

2017-01-20T20:19+00:00

Reminds me the decades when LA was as polluted as Beijing. We were lucky to have governors and local law makers who were willing to do what it takes - and doing anything about the problem, at the time, was VERY controversial. These people were very strong. And the fight is re-starting with the new a...

China's Environment Ministry

2017-01-20T20:12+00:00

The body has named and shamed local cities for not doing enough to cope with smog according to Reuters that quoted Xinhua. Why this ministry hasn't named the largest companies in the energy sector that profit so much they can invest in overseas markets may not be so difficult to guess. China names a...



Re Pumpkin Pie- British as fish 'n' chips!

Plagiarize much? When you copy an article or even excerpts from an article without citing the source and author, it's plagiarism and reveals either a lack of education on the part of the copier/poster or an attempt to deceive the reader. In your case it would be both. Here's the source: The History ...
