Q: WARNING to all expats in Beijing

There is a warning going out to foreigners in Beijing at the moment. There have been a few attacks on foreign men by a group of 6 or 7 Chinese guys. They have attacked people with metal pipes. All of the attacks were in the early hours so if you go out at night just be careful.

Insecure local men are insecure and cowards attacking only when outnumbering their targets.

Do you mind posting some journal articles about it (fat chances...) or forum discussions about it ? What was the outcome for the victims ? Did they manage to make it to the hospital and declare the aggression ?

Whoa. I don't want to sound pretentious when I say this, but 6 or 7 vs 1 barely impresses me.

Even when I try to be honest with myself.

 

A long time ago, I got physical with a bunch of angry dumbasses. I didn't start it and I do not take any pride from it, but what I noticed is how empty they are. One single confident strike back and the whole group runs.

Where did you get 'few attacks'? What does it mean 'alleged attack'? 

 

I GOOG yesterday your title, and there was absolutely nothing on the Internet on the subject.

 

It's a bit overdo to post warning, because of the one-alleged-attack on the single foreign person in 20 M residents city. 

 

 

BuTT.... let's all be careful also when you're crossing the road anywhere in China.

It says that there was a later one witnessed also

It might be (affirmative) action to raise FT's pay rate in Beijing. Nobody wants to live there for 'no air' purposes, and now (one) attack. Another 3 FT in Beijing will look for the job elsewhere.

hey, I didn't write the article, I just don't want anyone getting beat up when it can be avoided. If you don't like the article go and post some nonsense somewhere else.

And this is exactly why I go to the gym and continue to practice martial arts. 

 

Thanks for posting the article here and providing me with some bonus motivation because Chinese NEVER fight one on one... like REAL men.

A while a go, 6 Chinese students in my home province have been attacked by 3 guys. Police intervention, switft processing by justice, and apologies from the President. No denial, and of course, outrage in China.

When it happens in reversal (foreigner attacked in China), it's just completly ignored.

Assuming that this story is factual and who knows the background as to what really happened......the guys is extremely lucky that police didn't arrive on the scene during the (alleged) attack. He would have been the one heading off to the police station in 'cuffs and facing compensation and other issues.

 

As I have mentioned before, as was told to me by a local police prosecutor; "if there is trouble it is always the foreigner's fault."

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
