China's Invention: Child Sandwich?

It appears to be a lot of fun for the teacher who sits on top of layers of children: her students. (screenshot)

A parent was shocked to find this photo among other photos of children's activities in school on the QQ blog of the school parenting site.

One blogger commented: Dear Teacher, you look very happy, what about these kids?! What about their feelings?!

Growing up with communist idealogy, modern Chinese have not heard of common sense and human dignity if their parents do not teach them privately.

Beijing Smog Red Alert - First Ever PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

Beijing has issued its first ever red alert warning for smog.

Half of the city's vehicles have been ordered off the road, and factories and schools are closing as the PM2.5 particle readings climbed toward 300 micrograms per cubic meter, compared with the World Health Organisation's safe level of 25. The heavy smog is not expected to improve until Thursday.

Since November 28, toxic air has smothered northern China, increasing to hazardous levels in the ensuing days.

The red alert appears to be a delayed response to the online criticism from citizens in the last few days. Authorities are supposed to issue alerts 24 hours before the onset of serious smog conditions.

One online comment said: " If it is red alert today, what was it last week?" Another said: "So what, we live in a gas chamber anyway."

The smog is expected to last until at least Thursday 10th December.

The regime usually tries to downplay the warnings issued by the US Embassy in Beijing on air pollution, but these warnings are well appreciated by Beijing citizens.
