You might crave 'spike' in Chinese food. There was post few days ago about 'Chinese Restaurants are adding opium to food', just to make customers keep returning to the joint.

Here it is:

When you eat something all the time, it gets boring. Now that you can't eat it, you get hungry for it. Also, you might like all the MSG they put in the food. Try making some Chinese food at home.

It's not weird at all chinese food back home makes your belly full faster but in reality you are not really full they actually put artificial fatteners to make you think you are. Chinese food in China is way better!

Poor you, Happy Camper.  You must live in a one-horse town in the middle of North Dakota with no Chinese resto if you miss Chinese "food".  Chinese food in America, from coast to coast, north to south is far tastier, healthier, more nutritious than Chinese food in China.  You scoff?  Okay.  I'll tell you why Chinese food is better in America.

One, restaurant sanitation controls, inspections, rules & regs in the U.S. are second to none in the world.  Your kitchen stinks, your restaurant sinks.  You will eat well because the food is clean and will not make you sick - ehhh, most of the time.

Two, the recipes and menus are modified to suit the American palate - so you don't have to eat chicken feet or end up with a bone in your larynx.

Three, Chinese food in the U.S. costs about the same as Chinese food in China.

So, what's there to miss?  Besides fatty, oily foods, stringy beef/mutton that could be rat meat, ptomaine poisoning, salmonella, and skin, tendons & bones cloggin' up your windpipe...

Learn to cook, Happy.

Kaiwen:

Australian sanitation and inspection standards are much better than those in the USA (I am not an Australian or American citizen by the way). The USA has had some of the worst foodborne illness outbreaks in the world. The Australian authorities always carry my unfettered admiration.

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
