Title: Pelosi expected to visit Taiwan, Taiwanese and US officials say
This report talked about Pelosi would come to Taiwan Province in spite of Chinese government’s warning. And this media got the messege from US officials that Pelosi would visit Taiwan province.
After reading, I thought this media was unfriendly to China and its reports were not objective. There were lots of politics in its reports. In this report, it said that Pelosi‘s coming didn’t have any connection with politics and she just wanted to defend the democracy. This was so funny.
From all experiences between China and Pelosi. Pelosi once came to China and “protested” for democracy in Tiananmen Square. She always says things together with democracy. But her real intention was to devide Chinese. She is a politician, not a democrat as she said. Her coming is a political activity which damage region safety.

Title：China-Taiwan: Joseph Wu defends US Speaker Pelosi's visit
The situation in Taiwan province has enhanced after Pelosi visited there. This BBC is also an unfriendly madia whose reports has a lot political factor.
In this report, BBC interviewed “Taiwan Foreign minister” as they think. He believed that Taiwan was a seperate nation and he thought that Taiwan has for too long relied on the 100-mile-wide Taiwan straits, and America, to keep it safe. His behaviour just liked a dog of America. Taiwan has been one island of China for long history. But some people wanted to divide it into two nation, which obviously can’t be accepted by all Chinese.

Title：China textbooks revised after 'ugly' cartoons spark outcry
This report talked about the news that Chinese government punished the person who were connected to ugly character in Maths textbooks. This report said that “this is not the first time that there have been sensitivities in China towards cultural content depicting the Chinese people.” And it also said that the praising towards new cartoons on Chinese social media are what government buy.
To my opinion, I think the new cartoons are much better than before and the old cartoons are actually too ugly. I also think that some people on the social media are too sensitive, which makes them difficult to understand the reality of things. The old cartoons are agly but I think it doesn’t have any connection with the education of those textbooks. The reason of children’s failing isn’t the textbooks. The only problem in this event is why government passed these ugly cartoons and whether there were some profit connection in it.

Title: China education: Teacher fired for cat's cameo paid $6,000
This news is about a teacher who worked in an online education company. One day in her class, her cat appeared for several times, which made her dismissed by her company. She didn’t accept this punishment so she took her company to the court. In the end, the teacher won and she got 40000 yuan.
I think one of its reason was that the company was difficult because of the epidemic. Although the teacher had problem that she didn’t manage her cat well during the class, it wasn’t enough to dismiss her.

Title：World Population Day: India will overtake China in 2023, says the UN
India is set to become the world's most populous country next year, overtaking China with its 1.4 billion people, according to UN figures. Chinese population has been lower every year. The reason why Chinese population is being lower is that young people don’t be willing to born new babies. Although government allowed to born more babies, some people may not afford the expense of a baby. On the contrast, India is in its population profit period. But their environment afford a lot.
So, there are a lot of problems to have too much or too little population. To maintain the population in a suitable range is important.
