Why Didn't Yao Ming Also Sleep?

The former Chinese NBA star Yao Ming was appointed by the Chinese communist party to be a member of the CPPCC (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference). Yao Ming is also a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University at present, and at same time conducting his wine business.

Having all those duties to attend to, Chinese bloggers commented on these photos:

"Why did 'Delegate Yao' not sleep?"

"Please have a look: the back of those chairs are so low, even if 'Delegate Yao' slid down in his seat he would still not be able to rest his back properly; but think about it everyone, Yao is a star, and a tall man, if one takes photos, doesn't matter from which angle, one cannot miss Yao. If Yao was caught sleep, what kind of news would we get? ...!  Well, Yao made the right decision, did not sleep, but Yao is dreaming with his eyes open, if you check the photos carefully..."

"Baby Box" for Unwanted Children - Only in Communist China PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

Authorities in Nanjing have built a small building dubbed the "Baby Box" in which parents can anonymously abandon their unwanted children.
The "Baby Box" according to communist authorities, will provide a 'safe' place for parents to leave their children who will then be cared for at the nearby Nanjing Welfare Home.
The space will be monitored electronically so that an alarm sounds when a baby is left and staff from the home will collect the baby.
Authorities hope that this will stop parents just dumping unwanted children in streets or parks.

The "Baby Box" is next to a grocery shop, and is usually open only at night so as to make it easier for parents to dump their babies anonymously.

The owners of the grocery say that nearly everyday, people come to "dump" babies. Sometimes they try to persuade the parents not to do it but to no avail.
Some people even come in the day time, asking where is the "Baby Box". Only a couple of days before the new year 2014, a couple drove up in the daytime and left a baby and some milk powder and other items outside of the closed Baby Box, so the grocery shop owners had to quickly ring the staff of the welfare home to collect the baby.

Some Chinese lawyers have openly condemned the practice. Mr. Li Chunfu, a lawyer in Beijing, said, "running a baby dumping place, is against the constitution. It is against the law to discard a child but the Minister for Civil Affairs, who announced the action, maybe has his own thinking. "

Ms Qi from Beijing told overseas Chinese media, "To establish such a baby dumping box is a morally twisted policy, only the communist regime could think of such an policy. If so many chidren have no one to hold responsibility for their care, it would just be up to the government to say whether one will be alive or dead, if they are sold, organ harvested, like they have been doing to Falun Gong practitioners, no one will know. You see that 6 year old boy from Shanxi whose eyes were stolen and the 9 year old boy from Henan, whose cornia were taken....these things can happen only in China!"

Authorities in Shenzhen and other cities are also considering the idea of a "Baby Box".
