When I was in high school in the United States. A Chinese student in the school was blocked by several black people in the toilet for a few dollars. He did not give it to him. The black man took his cell phone and threatened him. He reluctantly took the cell phone from the black man and punched him a few times. This means that in the country, as soon as it did not come to the money, it did not cause any harm. Probably most teachers, up to school warning? Or it's more likely that you can't find these blacks. Because they didn't know them at all, they didn't know what their names were. After the classmate came out of the toilet, I passed through the toilet and he said what had just happened. And gave me a slight bruise on my arm that I couldn't see. We went to the office to find a teacher. The teacher found the witnesses who were at the door of the toilet at the fastest time and found the blacks in a class. The blacks were called to the office, but they all denied it. It is said to be the wrong person. The teacher sneaked the classmates to the door of the office for identification. It was determined after them. Because the teachers are afraid that they will threaten to retaliate after school, so the Chinese in the school have advanced two classes in advance. (The whole school is also four or five Chinese.) The next thing is beyond my expectation. The school reported the police. This case was handed to the student court. One day the director of the school came over and called a taxi to carry us several Chinese people to a court-like place. There was a person who asked about our experience. Then the director asked us to go back to school after lunch. During the meeting, we and the director said that we didn't want to pursue it. It was too much trouble. The director said to me with great enthusiasm that this is the United States. I know that you Chinese don't like trouble. However, the school will help you handle the whole affairs. Our school does not allow such things to happen at school. At the end of the matter, we attend class as usual. Only from the high school four years later that day, we have never seen the blacks. And according to the teacher, they were given a restraining order and they would go to jail if they dared to show revenge in front of us.
I is definitely a public library! There are 119,487 public libraries in the United States. There is a public library for an average of 2,700 individuals. There are more public libraries in the United States than McDonald's. 68% of Americans have a library card, and they borrow an average of 7 books per person per year. Answering the main place of residence, there are approximately 12 public libraries within 20 minutes of driving. The public library in the United States is not only a place for borrowing books, but 98% of the libraries have a network and a computer. For some people, it is the main method of contacting the Internet, especially young people in poor or remote areas. The public library also organizes a lot of reading activities, from the newborn baby to the elderly, all have suitable activities. My baby has been going for 3 months. By now, one and a half years old, the library has become a very important part of our lives. The children's area of the library generally has a lot of toys and multimedia, which is a good place to bring your baby.
The American dog is doing well. There are many places where we need to learn from the United States in the management of pet dogs and the civilization of dog owners.
In many parks in the United States, you can see this sign: Off Leash Area.
Only certain areas can loosen the leash, that is, in other areas of the park can not be loose dog chain. One time I rode my bike to a park in Minneapolis, I saw a big golden retriever happy in the no-chain zone. When someone opened the door and tried to run out, the owner was greeted with a good meal. . In addition, the law has special restrictions on large dangerous breeds. For example, the law of Minnesota, which is the Great Brightness Rule 347.52, stipulates that "dangerous breeds" as defined by the animal management department must be put on public places to prevent them from biting other people.
The English world has more information than the Chinese language. Ordinary Americans can learn more information than ordinary Chinese. Many things that are not found in the country can't be found, and they come out in English. In fact, I know this difference most when I know the answer to the questions of history. Many topics search for Chinese for a long time. There may be a dedicated Wikipedia page in English. It is like Western history, art history, etc. When I answer the question, I just sort out the English material and translate it. I feel like I am the second trafficker of information. This information is not only in English-speaking countries, but also Greek history, African art, and Egyptian archeology. From history to nature, from physics to astronomy, anyone who wants to study a bit deeper must deal with English literature. There is also the friendliness of the information in the English-speaking world. This can be said to be a kind of self-escalation after the English information reaches a certain level: after the information volume is nearly saturated, the cultural practitioners begin to optimize the existing information according to the audience. In the Chinese language, only long and boring text information is found. Like photography guides, it is often found in the English-speaking world that Little White is teaching videos. The veteran in the video is often an attitude of “this is very simple for you”; it is not the kind of domestic words in the mouth, “this is not what you can understand now” attitude. The vast majority of high school-level courses can find online classes on YouTube, and it is a very interesting kind of web class for excellent editors and hosts. Most of the university’s junior courses can also find online classes. For example, I recently looked at college-level digital photography 001 courses. The 18-hour lecture is exactly the same as the class. (Photography course link: https://youtu.be/gRT0mtabjI4, teacher is professor of Stanford optics, it is recommended) The United States and Britain add up to only one third of our population, but it creates much more information than we do. It shows the high efficiency of its population as an information producer, which also enables its own population to enjoy wider and deeper information. This is a cultural advantage. Of course, a huge information base is only a tool, and what is more important is the people’s desire to seek information actively. This is another matter. Update: Points to reply to the comment area 1. I am not saying that English itself is better than Chinese. I speak more English than I do in Chinese. 2. Some students in the comment area pointed out that this is because China has accumulated less. I want to say that this is all right. In the future, China may certainly exceed the United States in terms of cultural content output. I am just describing the current phenomenon. 3. The United States and the English-speaking world are certainly not equal. However, the United States is the largest content provider in the English-speaking world today, and it has also been able to draw on the vast database of information in the English-speaking world. There is a close connection between the two. 4. The English-speaking world is rich in information, and its essence is that scientists, archeologists, artists and media from the United States (and the United Kingdom) have been more active than China for a long time. What is more essential is that their economic development has enabled more people to engage in cultural and scientific research. 5. Many students in the commentary area attributed the problem to Baidu and Wall. But I don't think these are the main reasons for the problem, just some appearances. In the final analysis, China’s cultural and scientific capabilities are not enough.
I grew up in China and later studied and worked in the United States for many years. Because of professional and work reasons, there is more political and judicial access to the United States. Talk about this. The United States' checks and balances are indeed more mature than China's. In particular, the judicial system imposes irreproachable restrictions on legislative power and executive power. It is not the American people’s great wisdom that year that the judicial power is so independent, but the unique history and the political wrestling of various parties when it was founded (If one of you is interested, you can learn about Marbury v. Madison and Justice John Marshall. others). In addition, the strong judicial power of the United States does not have much to do with the people’s cooking system, because this situation is, as far as I know, only the United States. Europe basically does not have such a strong judicial system. Britain may have counted one if it is reluctant to calculate, but it has not reached the level of the United States (if you are interested in children's shoes, you can learn about Edward Coke and King James I). However, it also comes from the unique political situation at that time and it has nothing to do with ideology. Of course, this kind of system is not perfect. Even some American legal scholars are, to a certain extent, envious of China’s high efficiency of “the central government is talking about doing it right away”. The disadvantage of checks and balances is that they are wasteful. Want to pass any law must be all kinds of torments, all kinds of political transactions, or even simply opposed to oppose. I remember talking to an old gentleman who was at the top of the Senate Finance Committee in the 1980s. He lamented that since the 1990s, the two parties in the United States have completely lacked the spirit of "this is for the good of the country," and they basically uphold "you support I will definitely oppose the principle of ". But why did I insist that this system is better than China? Because I think the advantage of checks and balances is that things can be guaranteed to not go to the worst. There was also an answer to the previous discussion. After Trump took office as travel ban, he overstretched his head. The judicial system can directly intervene and destroy it. This is basically impossible in China. Fortunately for China, leaders have been more reliable in recent years, so the lack of checks and balances has not been too bad, but it has shown its high efficiency benefits (this is recognized internationally). However, no one can guarantee that there will be no unreasonable leadership and indecisive decisions. At that time, who can stop the "worst result"? At least the judicial system cannot.
