  • TV Series 'Ode to Joy 2' to Hit Screen in May 2017-5-20 09:36

    I haven't seen this soap opera, but I am convinced that the sequel is not as good as the original due to many reasons known to us all.

  • Chongqing Offers Free Training to Men Who Want to Be Preschool Teachers 2017-5-17 10:45

I wholeheartedly welcome any good intentions to lure male teachers into kindergartens and schools. And why not as nurses to hospitals. But to achieve this, Chinese society needs to overcome its chauvinist reflexes that militate against men working in such occupations.
