Q: Are you allowed to launch fireworks during festivals?

New Years Day 2013 is coming up and I want to celebrate it with a nice gathering in Guangzhou. I know this is last minute but is it possible to shoot fireworks in Guangzhou and where is a good place.

 

Another question, of course, is where can you buy fireworks?

I was there last year, and believe me, there is no shortage of fireworks........  don't know if you can get them and set them off.  

Think I do remember seeing them for sale.

I bought fireworks, the fuse was too short. I'm lucky I still have a face. My GF said I could not use them.

There even is or was a huge fireworks market in Guangzhou itself, not too far from the Tian He Coach Terminal.  That being said, this year, at least officially, the Guangzhou City Fathers have embarked upon a campaign of no fireworks during Spring Festival, and I don't doubt for one minute that that will change anything.  If the local police are vigilant, you may be fined -- if it is business as usual, well then.

I always bought fireworks on the street corner. Don't forget to bargain a little too. Actually, when the time comes, you won't have to look very hard...wink  fireworks will find you.

Last year for New Years I saw zero fireworks for sale, and at midnight there was nothing on the sky. That is of course a local "problem" For Chinese New Year it is a different story.

Allowed to? I thought it was compulsory! angry

 

Honestly, in Nanning in Spring Festival, every street has hundreds of firework sellers and they are set off on almost every street corner with absolutely zero restrictions. Apparently about 3 years ago they tried to ban it but 5 million locals effectively said "f*&k you" and ignored the authorities so that 'instruction' quietly died.

 

Be warned though, as stated above, the fuses (especially on the ubiquitious firecrackers) are very short, light and run, or at least get your head out of the firing line.

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
