Tongji Students Fall Down and Die in the last two days

On-line explosion, Lu Jingwei “has been squeezed by his mentor all the year round, 365 days without rest”, and finally, because

he can not bear the burden of body and mind, chose to end his life in this extreme way.

When we are sad, we not only sigh, but also mostly students from 985 and 211 colleges and universities.

On March 26 this year, Tao Mou, a male graduate student of Wuhan University of Technology, jumped from a building and died. He said he could not

stand the pressure of his tutor. The last thing he said to his mother was, “Mom, I can’t stand it. I really

don’t know how to get rid of Mr. Wang Pan.” In this extreme event, Wang Pan, a teacher of Tao Mou, forced him to call himself “Daddy”.

At present, China’s graduate education adopts the “tutor responsibility system”, so the relationship between tutors and students is equal civil

subject, or the relationship between management and being managed, there are still some ambiguities.

It is difficult to prevent the abuse of supervisor’s power when the definition is not clear.

The “tutorial system” has also been criticized by more and more people. Looking at the extreme cases happened in recent years among

college students, especially among graduate students, we find that many of them are caused by the

relationship with their tutors. This is also the reason for a large part of the *** which has been banned repeatedly in Colleges and universities.

No wonder many people call directly “in front of the tutor, the domestic graduate students are too weak!” In our country, the graduate tutor also

has another name called “boss”. This title gives a vivid summary of the current situation. Current graduate tutors have the right of life and death

to some extent. Whether students can graduate smoothly or not is largely in the hands of tutors. The scientific research work is relatively narrow,

and the change of tutors means that the previous accumulation has no use, and may not necessarily be replaced, so new tutors need to bear the

corresponding risks. Therefore, even if there are unsatisfactory tutors, most graduate students

choose to be tolerant. It’s unbearable that we can only take extreme measures to break out, and the tragedy is thus bred.

At present, graduate students are generally required to participate in the projects applied for by tutors. Some tutors will give students

a small amount of labor costs, and some tutors “exploit in the name of teachers and apprentices”, the

cost is obviously disproportionate to the cost of students, or even no money, students as free labor force to use.

The protagonist Lu Jingwei’s family said: Lu Jingwei’s life and living were restrained by Lu Yanjun, Lu Jingwei had no time to eat and could

only be ordered to take out to the laboratory, almost all holidays Lu Jingwei had to work.

There have been two shocks caused by brain hypoxia due to hard work. Although what the family members say remains to be verified,

So what is the situation abroad? Some netizens compare their own personal experience: “This year is my third year of PhD in the United

States. In the past five semesters, I have worked as research assistant for three different professors. At the beginning of each academic year, the College

will sign a corresponding contract with us for the workload of 20 hours a week. One of the greatest feelings of graduate students abroad is that the rights and obligations of tutors

and students are clear, and the boundaries are clear. Of the three professors I served, none of them asked me to do extra academic work.

In order to avoid such tragedies happening again, it is time for China’s graduate training model to be reformed urgently.

When Liu Kaiwei first appeared after his divorce, he

Speaking of Liu Kaiwei and Yang Fang, we all know that in front of the audience, they are still a very loving couple, but the news of divorce came

out some time ago. In fact, many people are quite supportive of their divorce, because they are often separated for work reasons, which is also one of the reasons leading to most stars’divorce.

Liu Kaiwei, who was about to fade out of the audience’s view, has been once again concerned by the media and netizens because of the revelation

of the divorce news with Yang Fang. So Liu Kaiwei, who wanted to keep a low profile, had to be exposed to the media. According to the Hong Kong media, Liu Kaiwei, who has always

been invisible, appeared alone in Causeway Bay Liyuan. He wore a duck tongue cap and a mask to cover his face, and deliberately

lowered his hat. When Liu Kaiwei first appeared after his divorce, he was boldly filmed in front of the media.

As you all know, the people in Hong Kong are not going to block the stars, so apart from the media, they found out that Liu Kaiwei, and no one else knows.

For the appearance of Liu Kaiwei, there are also media interviews, but Liu Kaiwei also made some simple responses and walked away. It seems

that Liu Kaiwei does not want to be exposed to the media, but the media will not miss this opportunity.

From the photos, we can also see that Liu Kaiwei has entered the elevator, and there are many media in the elevator entrance to take photos of him. In other words, everyone would be

very angry about it, but most of the stars, except a few stars, dare not say anything about such media. Because at that time, it is not known how

the media wrote about them. At that time, it was also rumored that Liu Kaiwei played a big card after his marriage or something.

Liu Kaiwei and Yang Fang’s daughter Xiaonuomi studied in Hong Kong and was cared for by grandfather Liu Dan. As for the divorce between

Yang Power and Liu Kaiwei, there have been many rumors about the divorce with other stars. The worst thing that has been blackened is

Wang Ou and Liu Kaiwei. After the divorce news came out, Yang Power was also photographed by the media, but Yang Power wrapped himself tightly.

Stars themselves are concerned by many netizens, so the influence of stars is still very great, and the news of divorce between stars, especially for some people who like gossip, has

attracted much attention. So it’s not surprising that they have become the focus of the entertainment industry. As for Liu Kaiwei, the reporter introduced the shooting in front of him.

And Yang Fang just took some pictures of their backs, which is also a difference. Now Liu Kaiwei has reduced a lot of work, so he is not worried about being exposed to the media.

Unlike Yang, Yang has been working very busy for a long time. Besides shooting his own new play, he also

needs to bring some new people with him. Although their husband and wife can’t do it, they treat their children well.

But now that they have announced their divorce, each of them will have its own development, in any case, it is impossible. I believe that after this wave of upsurge has passed,

there will be fewer media to find them. But I hope that some media can leave some private space for them, just hope that they can be well.

Believe that even if they divorced, but the treatment of small glutinous rice will not change, hope that small glutinous rice can grow happily, sometimes in a circle are involuntary.

452 people were detained by police according to law

In order to create a safe and orderly travel environment for the vast number of passengers, recently,

the national railway public security organs launched special actions to concentrate on the prominent

public security problems that disrupt the order of railway stations, such as “hegemony”, “blocking the door” and “forcing the station”.

Recently, local railway public security organs have strengthened the rectification of such prominent problems as “hegemony”. On December 1, 2018, on the G170 train, a drunk

woman forcibly occupied other people’s seats and abused staff and other passengers. Subsequently, the Beijing Railway Public Security Bureau immediately contacted and coordinated with the Shanghai Railway

Public Security Bureau for proper disposal. The Nanjing Railway Public Security Bureau took the woman off the train at Nanjing South Railway Station, gave her administrative detention for 7 days according to law, and notified the railway credit information system.

On December 8, 2018, on the Z25 train from Wuchang to the south of Shanghai, another man named “Bapu”

appeared. When the man arrived at the station, Bapu refused to get off the sleeping car, refusing to pay tickets, and his attitude was bad.

The man’s behavior seriously disturbed the normal order and was detained by Wuhan Railway Police according to law.

On December 14, 2018, on K7426 train, a woman held a ticket for carriage 4, but forcibly occupied three seats in carriage 3, which prevented three passengers from taking their seats.

After being persuaded and educated by the conductor and the police, the woman still refused to give up her seat. Subsequently, the police

of Jilin Railway Public Security Department forced him to leave his seat. The hegemonic woman was sentenced to administrative detention for five days.

Since the launching of the special operation of centralized renovation, the railway police have investigated and dealt with 2856 cases of illega

l and disorderly acts. 452 people have been detained by the railway police according to law for disrupting the order of railway stations and trains such as “hegemony”.

In view of the hot issues of social concern such as “hegemony seat” and “hegemony shop”, the Railway Public Security Bureau has recently

formulated and promulgated “Guidelines for Common Police Disposal of Passenger Trains” by organizing public security and legal departments. The Guidelines have been issued to 18 Railway Public Security Bureau to provide guidance

for standardizing the police disposal of trains. At the same time, the police should be organized to enter the station and carriage, publicize relevant laws and regulations through train

broadcasting and issuing information, so as to enhance the legal awareness and safety awareness of the vast number of passengers.

Okay, that’s all for today’s sharing. If you like Xiaobian’s articles, give Xiaobian a compliment. Your support is the motive force for Xiaobian’s progress.

the wrong birth!” “Die early.” In related videos, a baby is covered in his mouth and nose or slapped in

the face. Some Weibo netizens posted screenshots of conversations with women in the video, who said “the child is dead”.

The police of the Qingshan Police Station of Shigu Branch and the comrades of the Security Department of the First Affiliated Hospital of

Nanhua University conducted a survey of 43 departments and 58 wards in the whole hospital one by one. They took pictures of their

children and identified almost all the doctors, nurses and department directors on duty and asked them one by one.

Everyone has no impression of such mother and son. After checking the birth system, no qualified

ones were found. The doctor on duty in the outpatient system was not impressed with the child. After

Most of Chongqing Quanjian Therapeutics have no

In Tian Eye Check, the registration address of many health centers is very vague. Chongqing Morning Post, upstream journalist Liu Lilin

Follow-up of Quanjian Therapy in Chongqing

On January 4, the upstream news covered the situation of Quan Jianfeng Sanatorium located in Chongqing downtown area under

the title of “Quan Jianfeng Therapy”, “Surrounding the City in Rural Areas” strategy failure, mostly in back streets and alleys.

Among them, in the 25 health centers registered by the Industrial and Commercial Bureau, the registration addresses of many stores are very vague, and even the registration

addresses have become other stores. In the navigation app, the Quan Health Hall is mostly open in back streets and alleys, and many shops are in a “closed door” state.

With the publication of the report, some netizens reported to reporters that through the public

comment network, word-of-mouth and other life websites, they can still inquire about the situation of Quan Jianfeng Sanatorium.

Most of these shops do not have business licenses and are hidden in residential areas. After removing the word “Quan Jian” on the sign, some shops are still open as usual.

In this regard, the reporter visited the South Bank, Shapingba and Jiangbei District, and found that the reports of netizens were true.

On the morning of January 5, according to the information of netizens, the reporter came to a natural beauty and slimming health hall located in Jinsha International, Shapingba. The store ranks high on the public comment website and is very close to Shapingba Station on Line 1 of the Metro. It only takes 5 minutes to walk.

Although there are no words such as “Quan Jian” and “Fire Therapy” on the sign, the full name of the brand is “Deliyuan Private

Custom Shop of Quan Jian Natural Medicine Health Care Center” according to the pictures on the Internet. Unfortunately, when

the reporter found the shop, the door of the shop was locked and there was no sign of business. At the same time, Tian Eye did not inquire about the store’s business information.

However, the reporter found that in the comment column of the public comment online, the last message information stayed in July 2018.

For the whole process of fire therapy, insiders said they felt terrible when they saw it. “I also saw them wrap towels around their heads and light them. I was frightened and I felt like I was going to die.”

“I went there several times and got familiar with each other. They started recommending products to me. And ask me, do you know

Quan Jian? The shopkeeper looked shocked when he said he didn’t know. “She told me that Kwon Jian didn’t know? I’ll give you a good science popularization.

“Later, I had a month of physiotherapy there, and I felt cheated. Let’s talk about losing weight. If you eat according to the recipe, it’s equivalent

to dieting. Everyone can lose weight if you don’t eat every day. According to people familiar with the situation, it was no longer necessary to go.

Girls make beds in train aisles. They seem to be sleeping

Spring Festival is approaching. Recently, an online video has attracted much attention. The video was recorded in the passenger corridor

of the train. Some people built temporary “beds” with quilts, blankets and other things. Two women were lying in the “beds” to rest. The forwarder suggested “friends who buy tickets learn”.

After the popularity of the videos, some people raised the idea that “we can try it when we get home this spring”. Others questioned the loca

tion and time of the videos. “Is it deliberately shooting”. They asked whether the operation in the videos was feasible or illegal.

On Jan. 8, the publisher told reporters that the video was not recorded by himself, but transferred from a group of chats, which was more interesting. Subsequently, the re

porter of Beiqing Daily called 12306 Railway Customer Service Center to consult on the situation in the video. Staff members said that according to the relevant regulations, aisles can not and cannot be occupied by passengers, “it is a normal road”. Staf

f added that the specific situation should be based on the scene, “if the passenger flow is large, (such behavior) is generally not recommended, the staff on the train will regularly check, once found violations, will promptly remind passengers.”

According to the work plan and arrangement for the compilation of the Civil Code, the seventh meeting of the 13th Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, which opened on 23rd, continued to consider the draft contract and tort li

ability of the Civil Code. Provisions have been made on the “hegemony” and “robbing the steering wheel” which are highly concerned by all circles, stipulating the “self-help behavior” system for natural persons to protect their rights and int

erests, and protecting the privacy and personal information of medical patients. The draft contract compilation and the second review of the draft tort liability compilation of the Civil Code have made improvements to many new situations and new problems, attracting people’s attention.

On the train, the bus attacked the driver and grabbed the steering wheel. In recent years, similar incidents have occurred from time to time an

d even led to tragedies, which urgently need legal regulation. The second review of the draft contract of the Civil Code clearly stipulates that passengers shall be transported accordi

ng to the time, flight and seat number recorded in the valid ticket. The carrier shall transport passengers in accordance with the time, flight and conditions recorded in the valid ticket.

At the same time, the draft clearly states that the carrier should strictly fulfill the obligation of safe transportation and inform passengers

of the matters needing attention in safe transportation in a timely manner. Passengers shall actively assist and cooperate with the carrier in making reasonable arrangements for safe transportation.

Xiao Nuomi first appeared and laughed happily.

Since the divorce announcement with Yang Wei, Liu Kaiwei seldom appeared in public. The last time he appeared was when he was photographed by the media alone. However,

recently, the media again photographed Liu Kaiwei traveling alone. This time, he was not alone, but with his daughter Xiaonuomi. This is the

first time Liu Kaiwei appeared with his daughter after his divorce. Faced with the surroundings and questions of many reporters, Liu Kaiwei

was only one. When the reporter asked Xiaonuomi if his mother would come back to accompany him

in the New Year, Xiaonuomi just made a sweet “gracious” sound, which was a painful word.

After their divorce, Liu Kaiwei and Yang Fang basically did not appear. They were also photographed by the media and paparazzi. Recently, he

and his family went out for dinner and met the media reporters again. However, Liu Kaiwei himself was very generous and did not feel bored

with the reporters. On the contrary, Liu Kaiwei also wished the reporters a happy New Year.

Liu Kaiwei also carefully wished reporters not to be too close to take photos because the flash is not good for the eyes of glutinous rice.

Liu Kaiwei met many reporters this time and did not say any information. He did not mention anything about his predecessor Yang Wei.

But Xiao Nuomi was curious about reporters. When she asked her mother whether she would come

back for the New Year, Xiao Nuomi quickly answered “En”, which melted many people’s hearts,

because many people did not know that Xiao Nuomi’s “En” was a rising tone, obviously she was very happy.

Xiao Nuomi is happy, because her mother will come back in the New Year, but many onlookers are very distressed by Xiao Nuomi. Although

Xiao Nuomi has a good relationship with her mother Yang Fang, she has become a single-parent family at a young age, which is a growing trauma and regret.

In fact, to tell you the truth, Liu Kaiwei is very good, very polite and considerate. Divorce from Yang Fang

may be a real helplessness. Of course, no one is right or wrong in marriage, feelings no longer exist. Separation is also a good choice, which is the respect and understanding of each other.

We still hope that the media can give them more private space. Liu Kaiwei has been protecting his

daughter, media reporters and even paparazzi. We still need to set aside a little space for them. No interruption is the best blessing.

Just after the winter solstice, the temperature in

Just after the winter solstice, the temperature in Zhaotong to Shanbao area of Yunnan has dropped to 56 degrees,

along the way pine trees have “put on” a layer of ice. In January 2018, a picture of a local student with a frost on his head was widely disseminated after media reports.

Wang Fuman, the protagonist of the picture, was called “Ice Flower Boy” and attracted attention.

A year has passed. How is the life of “Ice Flower Boy”? What changes have taken place in the Turn Shanbao Primary School where “

Ice Flower Boy” is located? Recently, people’s network reporters came to Zhaotong Ludian for a field visit.

The school has built a new dormitory for heating and water supply.

Last June, the Xiaomans moved into their new house. The new house is very big.

The entrance is the cement road. It only takes 10 minutes to walk along the cement road to Zhuanshanbao Primary School.

Compared with the earth walls and mud roads of the old house, now the wind can’t blow, the rain can’t rain, and the roads are convenient,

so life will surely get better and better in the future.” Wang Gangkui, Wang Fuman’s father, said with a laugh.

Wang Gangkui now works at a construction site in Kunming of the Third Bureau of China Construction.

He can weld and build bricks and walls. He earns about 200 yuan a day. In the local area, such income is middle-class.

As the year approached, Wang Gangkui returned from Kunming’s construction site to buy his New Year’s Goods.

He bought a pig of more than 200 kilograms for a lively New Year’s celebration.

Nowadays, the classrooms of Zhuanshan Bao Primary School are equipped with high-power heating equipment. The school provides hot water uninterruptedly during the day.

Children will no longer write their homework red-handed in the classroom. At the same time, the school has built a new dormitory, and the students who are far away can stay in the school.

Once a “celebrity” Wang Fuman, many of the “first” in his life were engraved in 2018. In this year, Wang Fuman went to Beijing for the first time.

His vision was broadened by the high-rise metropolis. When he returned to school, Wang Fuman was not confused by the “prosperity”.

He was still studying hard. His ideal was still to be a policeman who caught bad people and to share his trip to Beijing with his classmates from time to time.

“Mathematics scores are in the top three in the class and the top five in the class. At present,

he is a member of the Labor Committee in the class and has a good relationship with his classmates.” Fu Heng, vice principal of Zhuanshanbao Primary School, said.

Fifteen poverty-stricken villages are listed in the decisive battle against poverty

Located in the alpine mountainous area of Wumeng Mountain, the turning hill is winter for half a year. “From September to April and May of next year, it is cold and windy, and frosting of hair is common here.”

Tang Yadong, mayor of Xinjie Town, Ludian County, introduced that local workers erecting electric poles, peasants working in the fields,

and cadres working in poverty alleviation in villages and households. They also often “white” head, “Ice Boy” after the fire, they will be jokingly called “Uncle Ice Flower”.

After the “Ice Flower Boys” were concerned, various sectors of society donated money and materials to help poor local children.

Most of the donated materials are sports goods, clothing, heating equipment and so on. With these and government procurement, the local primary schools have improved the basic equipment of the school.

Zhuanshanbao Primary School has set up its own laboratory, art room and computer room, and electronic teaching materials are also used in the classroom.

Yunnan Youth Foundation also initiated the “Youth Warm Winter Action” in January 2018.

Up to now, Yunnan Youth Foundation has raised a total of 3471265.86 yuan in special donations,

with a funding standard of 500 yuan per person, benefiting 6943 families with financial difficulties mainly left-behind children in Yunnan Province, so that they can spend the winter warmly and happy New Year.

Many local measures are taken to fight against poverty. Since 2018, Ludian County has steadfastly carried out household housing, industrial development, basic improvement, undertakings matching,

spiritual poverty alleviation and other work. It has achieved the listing of 15 poverty-stricken villages, with 4559 households and 17857 people out of poverty.

The incidence of poverty has dropped by 4.91 percentage points compared with the end of 2017.

Tang Yadong, mayor of Xinjie Town, also lamented that the total investment in poverty alleviation and fortification in Xinjie Town in recent two years far exceeded the total investment since the founding of the town. “

People’s life has been greatly improved. Ice Flower Boys will walk a good road and go to school, and their future life will be better and better. They will strive to get rid of poverty in 2019.”

In the newly built dormitory of the school, students from far away can live in the school, and Wang Fuman also chose to live in the school. Photography: Xu Qian

“The school has also built dormitories. The students who have traveled a long way can live in the school.

The quilts are all thicker. All of them are provided by the school.” Zhuanshan Bao is a deep poverty-stricken area in Zhaotong.

The accommodation condition of the school is much better than that of many students’families. At one time, parents asked the school if they could let their children live on weekends.

“The concern of the society makes students deeply feel the beauty of the world. The students’spiritual outlook has changed greatly. They have a clear goal when they get out of the mountains.

The students have planted seeds of dreams in their hearts, and the future can be expected.” Fu Heng commented on the students’changes.

Ravi?”Ravi nodded vigorously.
“Piscine?”I nodded even more vigorously.
He kept his eyes on me.
I nodded so hard I’m surprised my neck didn’t snap andmy head fall to the floor.

I would like to say in my own defence that though I mayhave anthropomorphized the animals till they spoke fluentEnglish, the pheasants complaining in uppity British accents oftheir tea being cold and the baboons planning their bankrobbery getaway in

the flat, menacing tones of Americangangsters, the fancy was always conscious. I quite deliberatelydressed wild animals in tame costumes of my imagination. But Inever deluded myself as to the real nature of my playmates.

My poking nose had more sense than that. I don’t knowwhere Father got the idea that his youngest son was itching tostep into a cage with a ferocious carnivore. But

wherever thestrange worry came from – and Father was a worrier – hewas clearly determined to rid himself of it that very morning.

“I found a good book about archery.” Sam frowned. “Doing it is harder than reading about it, though. I get blisters.”

“Keep at it. We may need your bow on the Wall if the Others turn up some dark night.”

“Oh, I hope not.”

More guards stood outside the king’s solar. “No arms are allowed in His Grace’s presence, my lord,” their serjeant said. “I’ll need that sword. Your knives as well.” It would do no good to protest, Jon knew. He handed them his weaponry.

Within the solar the air was warm. Lady Melisandre was seated near the fire, her ruby glimmering against the pale skin of her throat. Ygritte had been kissed by fire; the red

priestess was fire, and her hair was blood and flame. Stannis stood behind the rough-hewn table where the Old Bear had once been wont to sit and take his meals. Covering the table was a large map of the north, painted on a ragged piece of hide.
