Did you know that according to the China Labour Bulletin, in 2000, there were approximately 11,575,000 children at work between the ages of 10 to 14 in China? This violates article 32 of the Convention of Rights of The Child, which states, “You have the right to protection from work that harms you, and is bad for your health and prevents you from receiving an education. If you work, you have the right to be safe and paid fairly.” Even though the minimum age for work in China is...

“Never buy a Japanese car or anything large that’s Japanese. We can’t forget what they did to us,” speaking in Chinese, my grandmother shook her head disapprovingly as she walked away from Japan House’s doors and into the parked car. The Volvo deftly slid out from the Japanese restaurant drive way onto the service road. My mother who is driving in the front seat gives a soft reproaching glance at her mother-in-law. I immediately stop the tickle war with my brother and s...

Rising rapidly in power, population, and industry, China is, as we all have acknowledged, on the rise. With this poem I wish to recognize how China has grown from the fall of their dynasties (Qing) and the Opium Wars to the industrial giant of today. Hence, the poem's name to be 'Hou Qing' or 'After the Qing Dynasty'. Thus, all in all, this is in inspiration that all can grow from a fall, a collapse, disgrace. And from that, all can rise to power. Hou Qing I. Who are...

The WHO estimates that 97% of the people of Bangladesh have access to water and only 40% percent have proper sanitation. With a staggering 60% of the population that has to endure unsafe drinking water, the nation is in danger. The availability of this water greatly fluctuates throughout the year as the warmer season brings massive amounts of water in frequent monsoons and the cooler season brings drought. The infrastructure cannot adequately deal with the barrage of water in monsoon season so t...

Since the 1950s, China has installed birth control in the law, and during these past decades, this law has become stricter and stricter, and developed to the One Child Policy.. But is it always for the best, or should there be a limit? What are the real consequences of this law today? History: During the end of the 1940s, China decided to take control of the issue of the population growth and introduced birth control into the law, and started to sell and advertise more about con...

Born and raised in Hong Kong SAR, my initial inadequate knowledge of factual political climate and human rights situation in China as a whole was due to reasons including, but not limited to; the Chinese government’s high political repression, insufficient respect of human rights, media and internet censorship, etc. All of which are gradually being localized in the H.K. as well. Moreover, a semi-covert mission that has been conducted by the Chinese government is the criminalizati...

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner and Sochi, population 350,000, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of thousands of athletes from around the world. Amidst terrorist bombings and threats nearby, on account of Chechnyan rebel groups, Sochi faces great security challenges arising in the form of space, land availability, warm climate and safety from terrorist coups. Chechnya is to Russia what Tibet and Basque are to China and Spain respectively. Essentially, they ar...

Indonesia is one of the most populated countries besides that of China, the USA, and India. A big problem challenging the government of Indonesia, notably the Ministry of Education and Culture, is the equality of education. We also must look at the quality and access. Most of the above problems continue to persist in many tribal communities. The challenge occurs because of some geographical and cultural factors. Geographically, thousands of islands consist of remote areas house...
