Q: Why do store security sensors wrongly sound off?
ave you ever been to a department store whether it be a place like GAP or ZARA or any market and the sensors wrongly go off while your leaving the store? Or have you seen this happening in China often to others? What is the reason behind the false alarms are these security sensors not working at all?

What  for you may be a "false" alarm, in most cases it is not, or also it could be a mistake by the cashier at check out.  Those sensors are activated ONLY by the corresponding microchips placed on merchandise, which in turn are supposely deactivated by cashier after ringing them off. Sometimes, they are swap too quickly to deactivate, or are forgotten to be removed from item.
Of course, the other real option is that the person involved is indeed shoplifting, and the clerk doing the checking is not smart enough to know where and how to look for the offending item.
I worked for a compaqny doing this type of machines back in Florida for a few yeras, and trust me, they do not ring off mistakenly.

A: Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China
A:Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money. -- walternc3
