Any qualification created to get bums on seats should be avoided by everybody, not just foreign students.

That's true. All these universities in the English speaking world cares about is money..... in order word, bums on seats. They know the lure of a "foreign" degree gets that snob value back home. I'm not sure about nowadays, but in the olden days, a foreign degree is always seen as better than domestic degree.

No chance for that to happen.
In which case, force of arms should be used, which is my preference.

Anglos only understand force, only respect violence. Bring great pain and misery, death and destruction to their cities and they will respect you. Hey, they'll even love you the way Indians love Anglos and are willing to die for them.

IMO, if Australia is putting out an olive branch, China should respond by at least agreeing to communication and dialogue. This way, neither side has given up any concession. But there is nothing to lose by talking. By doing this, China looks more reasonable, even if it ultimately doesn't end up anywhere. Australia is now China's RCEP partner and it still has a complementary economy with China's, able to supply China with a great amount of raw materials and agricultural products.

I don't agree with that China should put Australia in its place LAST as the inverse of alphabet A. If you are rude to your customer than there is better store to buy from. Australia product can be replaced even iron with the new mega ship transporting iron, coal can be made cheaper.

For along time China is more than generous but those racist keep pushing their luck

What's the point of jaw-jawing with people committed to the enslavement of your people and the destruction of your polity?
Putting pressure eon Australia like what China is doing is having the desired effect of getting the billionaire merchant banking class, nervous about their profits, to side with China and turn the screws on the political class to do what it takes to get back in China's good books again.
The thing is, the military-intelligence sectors have infiltrated australian politics and have even threatened china friendly politicians, but this was of course back when we had a white supremacist in the WH. Now that Biden is coming in, these people aren't going to have political cover anymore.

An initiator of hostility that still didn't feel it did any wrong is not worthy of dialogue. Australia is not only one of the first countries to ban Huawei. It is also the first country to rally other countries to criminally investigate China over Covid-19. In addition, Australia is actively prosecuting anyone who assoicate with China with McCarthyism. Furthermore, raiding and detaining Chinese journalists for no reason is just outrageous. As GT said, it is just empty slogan and should be ignored.

[Some things I know about poverty alleviation]——Because there are relatives and friends in the family who participate in poverty alleviation, I have donated money and materials to visit some poor households on the spot. I saw some people who usually talk about poverty alleviation on TV and Weibo, and then saw what the netizen in Picture 1 said. I felt intimidated and talked briefly about what I knew about poverty alleviation.

1. In the 832 poverty-stricken counties across the country, are some people saying "poverty alleviated in unison"? It's not. The country has been fighting for poverty alleviation. A person I know has been sent to the countryside to fight poverty for more than ten years.

In 2014, there were 832 impoverished counties in my country. Since 2016, a batch of poor counties have taken off their hats every year. As of March this year, there are still 52 poor counties that have not taken off their hats. This time 52 counties also took off their hats—that is, it took 5 years to remove their hats in batches from 832 poor counties.

2. Poor counties have been focusing on poverty alleviation and reaching standards in recent years. Except for county and village staff at all levels, in this impoverished county I know, all government agencies and institutions usually send people out of production to help in the village. Civil servants, who are often referred to as "corrupt officials", as well as teachers and doctors, are often referred to as "corrupt officials". While at work, most of them have to undertake assistance tasks ranging from 1-5 households. These people are called "help persons in charge."

Workers stationed in the village, their superiors have to punch the card, and often do not go home once a week or a few weeks. Poor households have to take care of everything at home. During the epidemic, a poor household went to see his daughter in Wuhan and was trapped in Wuhan. The team members stationed in the village bought seeds and fertilizers out of their pockets to help her plow. . There are also helping to generate income, contacting work, contacting public welfare positions, helping to sell agricultural and sideline products, viewing houses and water for education, someone is sick, bitten by a snake, or even drunk and injured. . You have to manage. . .

There are also very few incompetent workers in the village and those responsible for assistance. However, most of them are working hard for poverty alleviation, their health, and their families, and there are also many cases of death for poverty alleviation.

3. In the past few years, there have been frequent telephone checks (family members of poor households, physical conditions, sources of income, a few pigs and a few sheep... all have to be answered accurately), third-party assessments, and counties, cities, and provinces. Level-level inspections include cross-inspections within the province and city (this impoverished county I know, more than 300 inspectors from other counties have stayed for a month, and every impoverished household must go to the site for on-site inspection), and cross-provincial dispatch People check and accept, and there is national acceptance. . There are also disciplinary inspections and audit inspections. . In 2020 and 2021, the state will also conduct a census of 832 poor counties. .

——No one can guarantee that there will be no fraud at all. However, it is very difficult to collude between top and bottom, across counties, cities, and provinces, with disciplinary inspections and audits, and with third-party assessment agencies.

Especially the "third-party evaluation (satisfaction survey)", the person responsible for assistance is more concerned about this-this third-party evaluation is generally entrusted by the provincial poverty alleviation office to a third-party agency to directly visit the door or contact the poor households in the counties and ask questions Poor households-"What is the name of the person responsible for the assistance? Which unit? Did you provide assistance during this period? What did you do for your family? Are you satisfied?" And so on.

The third-party personnel who carry out the evaluation work are generally full of ideal college students and graduate students, who are more serious and responsible.

There was a civil servant who answered "don't know" when answering the phone from a poor household. As a result, his satisfaction was scored zero, his unit's score was also compromised, and the conference was criticized and notified.

The person concerned was dissatisfied and said that he often came to help and solve his family's difficulties. Every time I go, I pay out of my pocket to give money and gifts. Children also give school bags, stationery and so on. So appealed to the Commission for Discipline Inspection.

The Commission for Discipline Inspection found that the telephone number of the poor households registered was the male owner. His family had conflicts, and the male owner went out to work. After calling the investigation call, he answered "I don't know". ——In the end, this civil servant was still exhorted by the unit to deduct bonuses and not be promoted within a certain period of time. ——Because the telephone number of poor households has changed, you did not report the update in time.

There is always a high score in the satisfaction survey of state-owned enterprises. Because this is a state-owned construction enterprise. They recruited the villagers they helped to work, and even recruited some well-performing poor villagers directly as regular employees. ——In this way, the income and employment of poor households are solved, and the satisfaction is high. Other assistance units that do not have such convenient conditions often complain about it as "incomparable".

4. Some people questioned that the data of a province is accurate to "6 households and 17 people have not been lifted out of poverty"-in fact, every poor household has a file, and it is usually publicized on the wall at the door of the house. Every time the person in charge of assistance comes to help, an important task is to update and report the various situations of poor households through the assistance APP in a timely manner. Therefore, it is not impossible to grasp single digits in specific situations.

[CONTINUED]

5. In 2015, the World Bank raised the international poverty line from US$1.25 to US$1.9 per person per day. In 2016, the National Office of Poverty Alleviation stated that the current price of the national poverty alleviation standard in 2015 was 2,855 yuan per capita. "Calculated according to the purchasing power parity method, it is equivalent to US$2.2 a day, which is slightly higher than the international poverty line standard of US$1.9"-the national poverty alleviation standard will be raised to about 4,000 yuan in 2020.

In March 2020, when 52 counties did not take off their hats, the National Poverty Alleviation Office stated that the population has been lifted out of poverty and the per capita annual income is above 9,000 yuan. People who have not escaped poverty have a per capita income of more than 6000 yuan.

Someone wants to ask, this is the average income. Some poor households, for various reasons, the income just cannot be helped? ——For such poor households, the state adopts the method of rural minimum guarantee to help them.

At present, there are 20,400,000 poor people in the country who have been included in the scope of assistance and support for the minimum living standard or the extremely poor. At present, the national minimum rural subsistence allowance standards at the city and county level have all reached or exceeded the poverty alleviation standards. After the poor households are included in the subsistence allowance, it is equivalent to reaching the income standard for poverty alleviation, and the basic guarantee is that they have no worries about food and clothing.

At present, the average national minimum living standard for rural residents is 5842 yuan per person per year, which is higher than the national poverty alleviation standard of about 4,000 yuan this year. ——Your per capita annual income does not meet the rural subsistence allowance standard, the government will issue you money to make it up to meet the subsistence allowance standard and protect your income from poverty (the current national per capita annual supplementary difference is 3468 yuan, this is the "policy for poor households" Sexual income").

In this impoverished county I know, the rural minimum living allowance standard will be 5280 yuan in 2019 and will be raised to 5952 yuan in 2020.

6. In addition to meeting the income standard, it must also meet the requirements of "don't worry about food and clothing", "three guarantees of compulsory education, basic medical care, and housing safety", and "popular recognition must reach 90% or more" in order to take off the hat.

In the area of compulsory education, the county’s tax revenue in 2019 was 400 million, and non-tax revenue such as land sales was 300 million, for a total of 700 million. The compulsory education expenditure reached 1.1 billion yuan.

In terms of basic medical care, poor households are hospitalized in the county, do not pay a deposit, and pay 10% of the medical expenses when they are discharged from the hospital. I was hospitalized outside the county, and I was reimbursed by the county medical insurance bureau after I returned. I still only pay 10% of my self-esteem (in some places, the self-esteem ratio has been controlled within 5%). ——You can also apply for special hardship subsidies.

For housing security, CD-level dilapidated houses were renovated in situ, and the state paid 35,000 yuan. If you relocate and build a house in another place, the state will grant you 21,000 + 10,000 people per household. If there are 5 people in your family, the state will grant you 71,000 to build a house.

As for the recognition of the masses, poor households have to confirm whether their income meets the standards, whether they worry about food and clothing, and whether education and medical housing are guaranteed.

7. Is it the end of poverty alleviation? It's not. The main purpose of getting rid of poverty is to solve the current absolute poverty problem, but also to prevent "return to poverty." ——Although the poverty-stricken county I am talking about has already taken off its hats, the village task force and the person responsible for assistance have not been withdrawn, and assistance must continue to prevent "return to poverty." That is to say, there are four ways to get rid of poverty: never get rid of responsibilities, policies, help, and supervision.

China should honor a superficial gesture of talking. It doesn't mean anything, and costs nothing.
