Q: Are Chinese televised sport competitions just a face building exercise?

Obviously there is nothing to be done when there are important international events but it seems to me that , when in absence of such events, Chinese sport on TV is fixed. I have yet to watch basketball, football, volleyball, table tennis, etc and see China lose. It seems to me the competion is carefully selected to make China look good in the eyes of the ignorant majority when watching TV.

Many of the games shown are from the Asian cup competitions and China dominates most of the sports you mentioned. They recently before that played a Basketball tournament in China (Stankovic cup) against Australia, NZ, Russia Angola etc where they lost almost every game and that was televised. I have seen soccer world cup qualifiers where they have lost a fair few times as well. As for table tennis well the fact is they rarely do loose and volleyball they are one of the best female teams in the world. So I guess you have made your statement based on current games which are the Asian championships basketball (China bt far the No1 nation in that) Asian cup qualifying pool games in soccer( China expected to dominate against many of the smaller nations until the final rounds) table tennis where they are by far the number 1 nation and whatever volleyball is on now (dont know too much about that). So like much of what you write pretty ill imformed and biased statement.

GoldenBoy:

I'll quote myself "Obviously there is nothing to be done when there are important international events". I may not be well informed but it is far from a biased statement because it is a question, and not unlike other questions it is a means to become informed hence the name question.

woody:

It was a question that was asked for the sole purpose of getting you end game statement of "selecting the competion to make China look good in the eyes of the ignorant majority" As usual from your posts it was a dig. Mant times in your constant attempts to put the Chinese down you are 100% correct, but your are so fkn superficial in your outlook and make no attempt to understand why or to balance things out you get come accross as in whingeing tool. I just gave you examples again as to why you are wrong. Of course China will select the sports that they are best at to show on TV, but you can also see a bit of athletics and swimming meets where they are not even in some of the events and if they are they dont always win. Most countries tend to show the international sports that they are best at and of course China being a communist country would try to get as much propaganda as it could out of sport. Matbe just ask a more open question each time and dont try and lead others into the putdowns you are fishing for.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
