Q: Are there UFO sightings in China?

I know it's obvious why you never hear stories in the media....but people talk.

Is the truth out there?

Of course there are! How many times have you been out and about and heard locals screaming and pointing, "Laowai! Laowai!! Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Laowai is, of course, Chinese for 'Unusual Foreign Oppressor."

I have wondered about paranormal events in China. With a history of 5000 years, you would think there would be all kinds of ghost stories.

I always thought that UFO's and aliens only go to the US.  I mean, you don't get alien movies where they land elsewhereindecision

I can remember a story about a village in QiLing (Shanxi??) mountains where, following a ufo sighting an entire village vanished. Sounded a bit shonky to me.

 

I couldn't be arsed to search for it.

There have been multiple sights including one where two Chinese air force fighters were seen chasing after it for almost a minute before it just climbed out of site within seconds. There was a You ku video but I have no time to search for it now. I think it was in Dongbei about two years ago or possibly Shandong.

Yeah, very strange indeed! There were also 3 or more pilots in different aircrafts reporting the same sighting. 

There is a month old report from Chinese sightseers from Inner Mongolia, Shanxi and Bj on Weibo on the same link ...

https://www.rt.com/news/441074-ufos-beijing-inner-mongolia/

... buTT .. the 'leader' said: "No, it wasn't! What's the matter with you all?"

I go down the avenue that says ET does exist, but they dont come here to buzz comercial jets or probe mid western Americans to find out what their bacterial flora count is.

The distances are too vast.

Stiggs:

Too vast for us but then who's to say ET straps himself into primitive fossil fuel powered skyrockets to get from A to B like we do.

Forward Question

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
