Police snare scalpers at
five Beijing hospitals

China Daily, by Cao Yin

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/31/2017 11:08:29 PM

Beijing police have detained 54 people on suspicion of registering hospital appointments and illegally selling them to genuine patients at highly inflated prices. (Snip) Scalpers — known locally as huangniu, or yellow bulls — have long been a problem for China´s health system, as they often mean lengthy waiting times for patients unwilling to pay their exorbitant prices. Depending on the experience of the doctor, the cost of booking a hospital appointment is usually under 100 yuan ($15). The scalpers caught in Beijing were selling appointments for as much as 2,000 yuan, according to the police. "These scalpers came from six gangs,"

During the Christmas break last month we looked at the rather odd story of an air traveler who was bumped from her first class seat on a United Flight from Texas to Washington by Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. (Snip) After a non-apology from the airline and an offer of a voucher in exchange for her troubles, Simon was still not satisfied with the treatment she had received. And now, according to her Twitter feed, she’s asked the Congressional Ethics Committee to look into the matter.

It´s not the prices at a shoe shop in Ramallah that will keep tourists out — it´s the demand for an official apology before entering. A sign recently posted outside the shop, shared on Twitter by COGAT, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, said any British or American citizens who wish to enter must apologize first. "To all British and American citizens," the sign reads. "Before entering, you should offer your apologies and hold responsibility for the Balfour´s [sic] Declaration and Trump´s dirty decision which has caused all the pain and suffering for the Palestinians since its declaration till this

2017 has been marked by an inability, mostly by CNN, to ignore President Trump when other things require urgent attention. That wasn´t a problem for Frank Giaccio. Frank had the courage to write a letter offering his lawn mowing services to President Donald Trump. "It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you," Frank wrote. "Even though I´m only ten, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for." Frank got straight to the point and made clear he was coming prepared for anything.

President Donald Trump will be represented during the 2018 Chinese New Year as a giant dog statue that shares his recognizable hairdo with a stern expression and an index finger pointed toward the sky. The presidential canine signals the country´s celebration of "The Year of the Dog" that will begin on February 16, 2018. (Snip) This Chinese New Year could be particularly noteworthy for the commander-in-chief, who was born in the Year of the Dog. Trump was born in 1946, a year that some Chinese astrologists associate with being intelligent, hardworking and sincere. The celebration of one´s birth sign supposedly signals a

A passenger on a United Airlines flight from Houston to Washington, D.C., accused the airline of giving her first-class seat to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. The congresswoman, in turn, said it appeared the passenger targeted her "because I was an African-American woman." Jean-Marie Simon, 63, said she purchased her flight for the last leg of her trip from Guatemala to Washington on Dec. 3 with 140,000 airline miles, the Houston Chronicle reported Saturday. When she attempted to board her flight on Dec. 18, she was informed her seat had been sold, and she was given a $500 voucher and re-seated in

To the royal household, it is known as the QXB – the Queen’s Christmas broadcast. To millions of people, it is still an essential feature of Christmas Day. To the Queen, her annual broadcast is the time when she speaks to the nation without the government scripting it. But in recent years, it has also become something else: a declaration of her Christian faith. As Britain has become more secular, the Queen’s messages have followed the opposite trajectory. (snip) But for the past 17 years, her messages have taken on a different tone, with the Queen explaining her own personal

"It’s A Wonderful Life" bombed at the box office before becoming a Christmas classic. Along the way, it also caught the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. (Snip) An unnamed FBI agent who watched the film as part of a larger FBI program aimed at detecting and neutralizing Commie influences in Hollywood (fathered by, yes, J. Edgar Hoover) said it was “very entertaining.” However, writes scholar John A. Noakes, the agent “also identified what they considered a malignant undercurrent in the film.” As a result of this report, the film underwent further industry probes that uncovered that “those responsible for

A member of the Chinese State Council estimated that at least 10,000 civilians were killed in the Tiananmen massacre of June 4, 1989, declassified files reveal. Alan Donald, Britain’s ambassador when the Chinese government sent tanks into Tiananmen square to quell the student-led protests, sent telegrams to the foreign office on June 5, a day after the massacre. He said a person – whose name was redacted from the document – passed along the information from an unnamed member of the State Council.

It is probably the most important date in United States history, but to most people Dec. 23 signifies only that there are two shopping days left until Christmas. On that date in 1783, however, a remarkable event occurred. After victoriously leading an army for more than eight years against the mightiest military force on the planet, Gen. George Washington walked before the Continental Congress and announced, “Having now finished the work assigned me, I retire from the great theater of action …” He had commanded an army clothed in rags, its soldiers so hungry they ate tree bark to fill

Is this the beginning of the end for Donald Trump? Everybody´s hoping so – especially the journalistic class. That´s why they´re so giddy over the defeat of Roy Moore, (Snip) I hate to be a party pooper. But I´m thinking not so fast. People have been predicting Mr. Trump´s demise since the day he moved into the White House. And he´s still here. Mr. Moore wasn´t just a flawed candidate. He was the worst candidate for senator in modern history – a knuckle-dragging troglodyte and a rogue judge who´d been kicked off the bench, twice. The Washington Post´s devastating exposé of his

A Canadian man says he’s broke after the United Parcel Service lost track of his inheritance. The intended $846,000 delivery was a bank draft from TD Canada Trust, which still hasn’t refunded the lost fortune 10 months later. Instead, UPS offered an apology and $32 to pay for the mailing costs, according to a CBC News report. (Snip) The postal service refunded Taylor the $32 it cost her to mail the lost parcel and sent an apology letter, but she says that doesn’t really solve her problem. The bank is refusing to refund the money unless Taylor signed an agreement to pay

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values.

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
