‘Fear of facing students’: South Korea teachers grapple with high rates of abuse and suicide
www.channelnewsasia.com ‘Fear of facing students’: South Korea teachers grapple with high rates of abuse and suicide

Cases of teacher abuse often go unreported due to reasons like fear of retaliation, lack of support, and cultural norms that discourage them from speaking out.

Outrage as China hospital charges patient fee for sitting down on a chair while receiving an intravenous infusion as health authority says fee is in line with regulations
  • Your archived link does not cover the whole article.

    An official at the hospital in Yinchuan in Ningxia Hui autonomous region, northwestern China, said the fee was for two days’ use of a chair by the patient who was sitting on it while receiving an infusion.

    $0.70 is a heck a lot cheaper than the consultation fees you get charged in a government subsidized medical institution in Singapore.

  • Beijing intervenes in China’s solar industry as overcapacity dries up profit in the country's domestic market
  • If you have been following the Chinese solar industry, you would be aware that solar manufacturers from China, such as Suntec etc have gone bankrupt over the past decade or more. China's approach of allowing underperforming solar companies to go bankrupt is one of the reasons why their solar industry is so formidable.

  • Prospect of low-priced Chinese EVs reaching US from Mexico poses threat to automakers
  • The opposite of dumping is happening. For example the Kia EV5 is sold at [$20k in China](https://electrek.co/2023/11/17/kia-launches-20k-ev5-electric-suv-china-rival-tesla-model-y/) while the same made in China model is sold overseas [Starting at $46k](https://electrek.co/2024/04/04/kia-set-to-export-this-all-electric-suv-at-a-price-that-undercuts-tesla/)

  • Prospect of low-priced Chinese EVs reaching US from Mexico poses threat to automakers
  • At this point I believe its the international market that is subsidising Chinese EVs. Take a look at the byd dolphin mini / seagull. It is priced starting at $21,000 in mexico while the price in China is from $9700. You find many other examples of the same car models sold at much higher price overseas than locally in China.
