A Japanese cargo ship first mate at a port of China, walking past a Chinese Flag, kicked the flagpost with his leg. PLA soldier confronted the Jap, who spoke in English and scolded the PLA soldier, whereupon the PLA boy MMA slammed him down to ground and dragged him to office.
Jap guy was later detained because he was found without adequate identification papers (ie. no passport). But some time later released when his colleges came with papers and explanations.
Accordingly, the PLA soldier was sent to DB as disciplinary punishment, but China netizens and patriots love him dearly.

"The supposed ally the United States knows no limit in treachery," said the Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit.
There have been heavy clashes with the YPG in the Afrin campaign so far and Bozdag was speaking after seven Turkish troops were killed on Saturday, including five in a tank attack, the heaviest single day loss of the campaign so far.
Pro-government Turkish media said the tank attack was carried out with an anti-tank missile given to the YPG by the US, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Turkey on Sunday threatened to expand its operation against Kurdish militia in Syria to the town of the Manbij and even east of the Euphrates, warning that American soldiers risked being targeted in the area if they wore enemy uniform.
"US has to be aware of Turkey's sensitivities. If US soldiers wear YPG terrorist uniforms or are among the terrorists in the event of an attack against the army, we will kill them all, even the US soldiers." he said.
"If they come up against us in such a uniform we will see them as terrorists."
SINGAPORE: Members of Parliament or public officers (civil servants) who use their position or authority to "get back" at each other because of personal disagreements will be investigated, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said on Sunday (Feb 4).
"It would be improper for either MPs or public officers (civil servants) to 'get back at' each other because of personal disagreements. If anyone knows of either public officers (civil servants) or MPs using their position or authority to act in this improper way, he or she should raise the matter with me, with all the facts, and I will have it investigated."
Cancer survivors age faster and are far more likely to die sooner than people who have never had the disease, a major study has shown.
A review into more than 1,200 published articles found that the average life expectancy of childhood cancer survivors is 30 per cent lower than the general population.
It means that a youngster who suffered cancer is likely to die in their 50s rather than 80s.
In general, cancer survivors are also more likely to develop long term conditions, such as heart problems, lung scarring, secondary cancers and frailty. They will also get age-associated illnesses sooner than the general population, the analysis suggests.
The researchers also found that cancer survivors had shorter telomeres - the protective caps on the end of chromosomes which are a marker of ageing - suggesting they have grown older than their actual years.
The researchers say much of the illness and accelerated ageing is down to harsh treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which damage the bodyâ€™s ability to fight back from illness and repair itself.
Dr Shahrukh Hashmi of the Cancer Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, who led the study said: â€œWhile ageing prematurely is a better alternative to dying prematurely, a better understanding of what drives this process presents an opportunity for improvement.
"We believe that cancer survivors deserve long-term follow-up for the mitigation of the late effects."
Around 52 per cent of people diagnosed with cancer in Britain will survive for at least five years.
But the analysis found that childhood cancer survivors are up to six times more likely to develop a secondary cancer, compared with the general population. The risk of frailty among bone marrow transplant recipients is around eight times as high as that of their siblings.
Likewise people given steroid treatments, are at higher risk of cataracts, osteoporosis, nerve damage, skin thinning, infection and impaired wound healing.
Some cancer drugs were also found to be associated with hearing loss, reduced thyroid gland activity, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, muscular weakness, arthritis, kidney and liver diseases, chronic constipation, and infertility.
Radiotherapy was associated with dementia, memory loss, carotid artery hardening, and secondary bone marrow cell and blood cancers.
Scientists at Stanford University in the US found that injecting tiny amounts of two drugs directly into a tumour not only kills the original cancer, but also triggers an â€œamazing body-wideâ€� reaction which destroys distant cancer cells and all other tumours throughout the entire body.
90% of advanced-stage cancer-ridden mice were completely cured of cancer after a single injection, and 100% of the mice were completely cured of cancer after a 2nd injection. With this approach, finally the cure for cancer is closer within reach than ever before.

Pregnant mother sought help to re-home her problematic pet dog in Sâ€™pore, kena rudely scolded (by a Dog NGO director) and told to throw away her baby instead of the dog

Jason Ong is naÃ¯ve in his statement, "There are no bad dogs, only bad owners.". Aside from the fact that this case isn't about the dog being 'bad' (Jason is putting words into Joyce's mouth) but rather simply unsuited to share the home with a vulnerable newborn human baby, it is akin to the similarly misguided statements, "There are no bad students, only bad teachers." and "There are no bad children, only bad parents.", which is incredibly naÃ¯ve.
There is free will, and while parents, teachers and the environment do indeed contribute to one's experience, opportunities and hence character development, not to mention the overwhelmingly powerful influence of biochemistry and genetics of the physical body the human soul is incarnated into, but the most important factor, remains the free will of the soul, as well as the karma of the soul, which includes all experiences and choices of the soul's past lives and existences, which are ultimately still tied into the soul's own free will, whether applied in this physical lifetime or in past lives, ultimately all consequences are still of the soul's free will, personal choice, and consequences.
As such, the student, the child, every individual, must take ultimate responsibility for his choices and actions (even if the individual is born into trying or testing circumstances, including a physical body with overwhelmingly powerful genetic influences, his/her soul chose, either directly or indirectly, either consciously or unconsciously, either willingly or unwillingly, for the purpose of opportunities for experiences and free will execution for his/her own personal karmic growth, learning and soul evolution).
As such, just as every human individual is unique (taking into consideration all the permutations and combinations of all the complex of factors described in preceding paragraphs), likewise for individual animals, especially ones which are more individualized and emotionally & intellectually developed, such as dogs. They have their own individual souls with individual free-will as well, and hence individual self-responsibility as well, quite separate from the karmic responsibility of the pet owners, or teachers, or parents, or society in general to care for the less fortunate, etc. All are valid simultaneously.

Escalators have indeed killed a number of people (see videos below) in freak accidents, so be alert and cautious when using escalators.

For decades, McDonalds has been quietly adding a chemical Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) into the oil used for cooking French fries, simply because PDMS reduces oil splattering at high temperatures, making French fries easier to cook.
Now, a research team from Japan have found that PDMS helps hair grow on mice, and they expect the findings to be applicable to human beings as well.
Who knows what else McDonalds or other giant F&B brands, have been adding to our foods too all these years without a full understanding of their biochemical effects, eh?
Mary: Yes, I attended alot of interviews. Most of them would say they would have alot of candidates and will get back to me. I even encountered one interview where I was with another Singaporean â€“ a FT got the job and the salary she is asking is $1.1K higher than mine with no experience on the job!
Note : the Singaporean girl in the photo used by Transitioning.Org for Mary's case, is not actually Mary, but Elizabeth Boon. For more on Elizabeth, see :
