Q: Are cockroaches in China evolving really fast?

Ten years ago, roaches were big. And you might have had 2 or 3 to deal with in your apartment each week.

 

But in the past few years the big roaches have gone. Everywhere seems to be covered in hundreds of baby roaches. My kitchen in GZ certainly is. As I type this I have one doing a qukasncldhe .rgjc;wi fb dash across my keyboard.

 

Missed the bugger.

 

Serious question.

 

Are roaches becoming smaller but more numerous where you live?

I think your apartment, or somewhere close to it - under the floof or in the walls maybe - is ground zero. The mothership. You see hundreds of little baby roaches but from your apartment they probably spread to other apartments, take up residence there and grow.

 

If you're seeing hundreds of baby roaches pity the poor woman living downstairs from you who is seeing hundreds of big bastards and freaking out every time.

 

Haha, if you didn't get on with your neighbours that would be a nasty low down way to feck with them... breed baby roaches. devil

There must be  some cooking recipe ... somewhere ...

 

Stew with loads of veggie and potato squares comes to my 'hungry  mind'.

 

Don't forget to add chopped melanzane .. and few whole almonds .. to preserve crunchiness ... of the meal ... O2 .. I can't breathe .

 

You have warm weather year around, so stop complaining! There are no roaches in Harbin, but they do -40*C for 6-months of the year.

You should see roaches in S. Fla... They are so big, they 'read' newspapers.

 

Box some Raddichio and make miniature Zoo ... in your kitchen!

It must be your neighbors. You all need to lay some poisen down together and get rid of them once and for all. Been living in my apartment for five years and have never seen one but then again I am a bit of a cleaning fanatic.

I mostly see the baby ones and only a few big ones, because I assume people kill most of them before they grow too big. But I recently saw a big one fly into my apartment through the balcony. Are they finally learning to use their wings??

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
