Mental representation of dolphin is high school dropout, dazzer junior high student, while Liumingke is elementary school. The latter two would occasionally switch.

herenow, often the voice of reason and wisdom.

Looks like tiger is back to his usual helpful self, assisting old ladies cross the street....

all is well as James Callis of the world are asleep sweet dreaming of hit n' runs... until they awake.

As long as tigers roam this earth, so will the callous jackals.

Bumping the bun.

Returned from a renowned, luxury French resort in SE Asia. For breakfast, they humbly labelled sourdough bread as "French Village Bread." No other language, just plain English despite quite a few occupants being French. Even two upper management employees were French. But majority of guests were from all over the world.

Just Hot Jan, I need to inform you that Just Hot is the subsidiary of JiaHua Bakeries. Although TKP's Just Hot targets higher-end market segments, the apple doesn't fall from its tree... it's no wonder their ginormous croissants can't compare with the croissant quality of their direct competitor, Bon Appétit, which is situated not far from them on the same B1 level.

Thank you with sincerity for doing your part in being their beacon of light now, and glimmer of hope for their future.

Touching base on the challenges of recruiting credentialed teachers to rural outskirts.

Though some may scoff at technology and change from traditional pedagogy/curriculum. Perhaps the anecdote in that domain lies somewhere in the advent synergy of 5G, A.I, and satellite internet....

to bring real-time machine learning based academia to backwater classrooms in virtual form. Reaching not just hundreds of millions of rural children in China. But bridging education access gap to those less fortunate families in the Middle East, India/Pakistan, South East Asia, Africa, and the rest of the world.

Perhaps a ground-up, global multinational cooperation effort with coalition of governments' subsidies to incentivize private innovations need to occur to make this a reality.

No cloudy, Starbucks aren't enough to give rural children the opportunities for a brighter future.

Building more schools and hiring a legion of well-trained teachers to foster a better education system may help.

The government needs to allocate more funds to building and revamping these countryside schools.

And where may local governments get that money outside Beijing?

Perhaps by selling or leasing prime real estate locations at exorbitant prices to foreign investors, such Hang Lung Properties.

By permitting these deep-pocketed developers to build skyscrapers at sought-after locations, value of land further increases, hence their selling/leasing prices resulting in higher revenues (inc. corporate taxes from ensuing business & offices) for funding public projects such as said public education.

This is where the corporate buzzwords you so despise come into play. Accountability, transparency, and oversight. Without which, corrupt-prone local officials may end up pocketing the hongbaos from developers to be transferred to their private Swiss bank accounts used by their own privileged children studying aboard.

With accountability, transparency, and oversight... hundreds of billions in funds are more than enough to provide poverty stricken children the first steps in the right path to a brighter future.
