Q: Band-aids: what for?

I noticed lots of my students have various tiny square band-aids on their ears. When I asked, I was told it is for their eye sight. *confused*

I had a student recently get her ears pierced for "eyesight" reasons. I believe that the ear is connected to the eye in Chinese medicine. Rather than getting an actual peircing, these students are probably just getting a new hole punched in the ear to improve eyesight.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
