The modern electronic cigarette's design was devised by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003, though the earliest known description of its concept was authored by Herbert A. Gilbert in 1963.

And while in my location I have sometimes see them for sale at major cigarrete/liquor stores (not at small ones), I have no idea of where near you. But browse on Internet on the sites below, and you may buy them on line too.

The e-cig infomercials they used to run were the best. There'd be a young married couple (hammy actors) talking about their miscarriage with dramatic, misty flashbacks. Then, when they got to the part where second hand smoke caused the miscarriage, the wife would start crying and screaming at the husband, and the husband would start crying and looking downwards in face-loosing shame. It's hard to explain, but the tastlessness combined with the screaming combined with the manipulative sales tactics was just hilarious.

Anyway, you will see them in certain tobacconists' and sometimes in convenience stores. They shouldn't be too hard to find.

Yeah, you can see non-stop ads on the advertisement channels. With great actors who totally know how to smoke, and invisible green screen effects. But apparently very few people dare 'smoking' those.

You can also find them on Taobao (of course).

Are e-cigs more popular in China now?

When I left the UK, they were really rare. 3 years later, they are everywhere!

All the kit for refillable "Shisha Pens" are made in China...but will they catch on?

I've seen them to buy on taobao, but do actual physical shops sell them now?

 

Perhaps China will be a tough nut to crack?

1) Cigs are still really cheap. Zhongnanhai = 7 rmb, Japanese Salem = 17 rmb

2) The tobacco companies are mostly state owned.

3) Less smoking = more pensions/healthcare to try and provide.

4) Mianxi!....the more expensive the cigs you offer out, the more important you are!

 

Personally speaking e-cigs rock...1000% better than smoking. Down to 0.6% nicotine now, next stop is zero!

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
