An old photo: 40 years ago, "hair", have you ever enjoyed the "service" of high-end shampoo?

Eagle Eye Observation: Life is better, but there is more pressure, hair is shiny, but the number is less, there are more mobile phones, there are fewer heads up, there are more worries, and there are fewer smiling faces.

On 13 April 2005, the 59th session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism.

On 13 April 2009, the outbreak of influenza A (H1N1) (swine flu) spread globally.

1. Ministry of Foreign Affairs: China has decided to take countermeasures against General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, General Dynamics Land Systems and other companies involved in arms sales to Taiwan, including freezing their assets in China and denying visas to senior managers.

Eagle Eye Observation: You should reflect on it!

2. Ministry of Education: The 2024 Sunshine Enrollment Special Action for Compulsory Education will be carried out, comprehensively investigating the outstanding problems that the people have strong reactions to, resolutely rectifying the phenomena of "black-box operation" and "pinching enrollment", and seriously investigating and dealing with all kinds of fees that are linked to and related to enrollment and enrollment.

Eagle Eye Observation: The Ministry of Education also knows that "the people have a strong reaction", which means that it is no longer an occasional phenomenon, why is it repeatedly banned?

If every violation of rules and discipline is linked to the cancellation of the school's qualifications and to the prohibition of the relevant person in charge of the industry, how many schools do you think dare to "pinch the top of the enrollment"? How many principals and directors are willing to "operate in the dark"?

To put it simply, system building comes first, and letting units and leaders who are in a monopoly and have little supervision consciously abide by discipline is tantamount to seeking skin with the tiger.

When the benefits they obtain far outweigh the punishments, and in particular, they can openly violate the law in the name of the public, do you say that a special operation can completely solve the problem? I hope so, we can wait for next year to see and verify again. Do the organizers believe it?

3. National Health Insurance Administration: The national medical insurance department has never issued the so-called restrictive regulations that a single hospitalization must be transferred to a hospital for no more than 15 days. A small number of hospitals forcibly require patients to be discharged, transferred to hospitals, or required to be hospitalized at their own expense on the grounds that the medical insurance quota is full, which is a serious violation of medical insurance regulations and damages the rights and interests of the insured.

Eagle Eye Observation: Is there no explicit regulation, but is there a similar "spirit of instruction"? Otherwise, why does the hospital say "medical insurance regulations"? Is it that the hospital is lying, or does it indeed have corresponding guidance, assessment, evaluation, and even punishment regulations?

Just like some things during the epidemic, when it was "in full swing", the relevant departments worked hard, but so far they have said that there has been no text!

It's easy to talk to yourself, as long as you don't really sit down and say the same thing.

4. Ministry of Commerce: Encourage the replacement of old vehicles with high energy consumption, high emissions, long service life and potential safety hazards for new energy vehicles or energy-saving vehicles.

Ministry of Finance: Consumers who scrap high-emission passenger cars or eligible new energy passenger vehicles and purchase new energy vehicles that meet energy-saving requirements or new energy vehicles will be given a fixed subsidy.

Eagle Eye Observation: Two Questions:1. Is the "high energy consumption and high emission" car caused by the long service life? Why can foreign cars be driven for more years?

2. What the Ministry of Finance means, "new energy passenger cars" can be scrapped now? This is only a few years after leaving the factory, and the new energy is not new?

Both of these problems are "natural" factors, and no one is responsible, right?

5. The 2024 QS World University Rankings by Subject Rankings are announced: China ranks third in the world in terms of the total number of disciplines on the list after the United States and the United Kingdom, Tsinghua University and Peking University are among the top 10 in the world in 6 majors, and chemistry is the most globally recognized.

Eagle Eye Observation: In the past two years, when the atmosphere of "patriotism" was strong, weren't there many universities that "withdrew" from various rankings dominated by the West? Are they quietly recovering now, or did they not notify each other at all, but only showed them to some "patriots"?

6. Shanghai: The first store in Asia and above can receive a one-time reward of up to 1.2 million yuan.

Eagle Eye Observation: Who would have thought that in just a few years, the investment promotion of a "metropolis" would also fall to this point, and it would be drunk.

7. When Bao (female, 50 years old) in Nanchang County, Jiangxi Province, was shopping for vegetables in the vegetable market, he found a boy (3 years old) crying alone at the door of a breakfast shop in the vegetable market, so he stepped forward to pick him up and comfort him. The onlookers Wang and others mistakenly thought that Bao was a human trafficker, so they stopped him and prevented him from leaving. The police have now found out that the boy was separated from his grandmother in the vegetable market, and ruled out the suspicion that Bao abducted and trafficked children.

In Jiashan, Zhejiang, the driver of a cement mixer truck had a cerebral infarction on the way, and the vehicle stopped in the middle of the road. A couple drove by, noticed something unusual, returned to check with anxiety, and asked the nearby traffic police for help. Upon inspection, it was found that the driver of the cement truck was confused. They worked together to get the driver out of the car and dialed 120 as soon as possible. Due to the timely delivery to the hospital, the driver was no longer in danger of life.

Eagle Eye Observation: Compared with the above two news, it is obvious that the Zhejiang couple is more standardized, and did not directly step forward to "save people".

If the woman in Jiangxi squatted down to comfort the boy, asked for information such as the phone number, and asked the store for help, it would definitely not cause everyone to "misunderstand" her.

Advocate the joy of helping others, but also pay attention to rational help, to avoid "blind" rescue and "add chaos".

8. Following Moody's and Fitch, S&P Global Ratings downgraded China's Vanke to junk status, highlighting the growing cash shortage pressure on Vanke, as well as pressure from investors.

Eagle Eye Observation: When several major international rating agencies have the same opinion, we can scold them for being shameless, but not for being ignorant.

9. Zhejiang's first national independent renewal policy for old communities, the funds are borne by the property owner in principle. It is possible to appropriately increase the residential floor area and increase the allocation of public service facilities.

Eagle Eye Observation: This is called the real "independent update"! Why can Zhejiang take the lead every time?

10. The mainland released the 2023 medical insurance statistical report, with about 1.334 billion people insured.

Eagle Eye Observation: There are still nearly 100 million people who are not insured, why?

11. Tianjin: Schools in the compulsory education stage have one physical education class per day, and physical education classes must not be crowded out in any form.

Eagle Eye Observation: Is it possible? Every class adds up, and it's already beyond the normal class time!

12. In the general election of the new National Assembly of South Korea, the ruling People's Power Party suffered a crushing defeat.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol said he would humbly accept public opinion and carry out governance reforms.

The Prime Minister and other senior government officials resigned at the same time.

Han Dong-hoon, chairman of the Extraordinary Countermeasures Committee of the People's Power Party, delivered a speech in which he said that he would take all responsibility for the defeat, apologized and reflected deeply, and announced his resignation as chairman of the Extraordinary Countermeasures Committee.

Eagle Eye Observation: What a face!

13. The U.S. Department of Commerce has put four Chinese companies on a "blacklist" of exports, saying they are assisting the Chinese military in procuring artificial intelligence chips. At the same time, the United States has also imposed export restrictions on five Chinese companies.

Hawkeye Watch: How do you know so much?

14. Three sons and four grandchildren of Hamas leader Haniyeh were killed in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Eagle Eye Watch: The last thing Hamas leaders lack is "wives" and children.

15. Yemen's Houthi rebels said they used drones and missiles to attack four ships, including a U.S. warship, in the Gulf of Aden.

Eagle Eye Observation: That is, there are three other ships that belong to merchant ships, and they are not necessarily American. Those who support the Houthis should have no goods to go to the Gulf of Aden, and their living income is guaranteed, and they don't have to worry about the "life and death" of commercial activities.

But do those who work know that the tension in the Gulf of Aden will inevitably increase transportation costs, reduce orders, and then affect their own wages? Or would you rather cut your own wages or lose your job than support the fight against the American and British merchant ships?

16. The European Union released a report on "serious distortions" in the Chinese market.

Ministry of Commerce: China strongly opposes the European Commission's subjective, one-sided and erroneous assessment of China's socialist market economy and the pretext for its discriminatory anti-dumping practices.

Hawkeye Observation: Prove it!

17. The leaders of the United States and Japan held lengthy talks to seek to upgrade the alliance, and the joint statement mentioned the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait.

US media: The new US-Japan cooperation plan focuses on "confronting China and Russia".

Eagle Eye Watch: Not against "third" countries.

18. The United States said Iran could launch a massive missile or drone attack on Israel in the coming days.

Russian Foreign Ministry: It is recommended that Russian citizens do not travel to the Middle East unless necessary.

Eagle Eye Observation: This time Russia "believed"?

19. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India and China should "expedite a solution" to the protracted border issue between the two countries.

Eagle Eye Observation: It takes political wisdom.

20. According to a survey conducted by the German Chamber of Commerce in China, nearly two-thirds of German companies believe that they are facing unfair competition in China and are at a disadvantage in terms of access to local Chinese officials, information and licenses.

Eagle Eye: We've been doing a good job, far ahead.

Editor's note: The transformation of society is not a sudden change in the world when everyone wakes up one morning. It is necessary to start from the individual's "reluctance", and there must be a few people's "differences" first, and then the gradual difference of the majority of people. ——— Hu Shih

On the vote for flexible working in the UK on 11 April: 78% of people think it's humane, 20% think it's a pioneer, 95% want to have a flexible job themselves, and 67% think it's good to have a job and 32% think it's too early before we can get to flexible working.

Conclusion: It seems that the flexible working system is very popular with migrant workers. Some bosses might wish to give it a try.
