Leck of sleep , Chinese young people feel depressed

 According to a Chinese Sleep Research Society (CSRS) report, it takes Chinese people now two to three extra hours to fall asleep. The epidemic over the past year has caused sleep disorders to spread to more than 300 million Chinese. People are spending more time at home over the last year due to the epidemic. However, the average time to fall asleep is now two to three hours longer, according to CCTV.

Young Chinese workers are more likely to prioritize leisure time than sleep after long work hours, even though it is unhealthy. This behavior is a result of what?

Three years working on China's notorious 996 schedule: from nine in morning to nine in evening, six days per week. Rao, originally from Nanjing moved to Shanghai five years ago to join a multinational pharmaceutical firm. It quickly became her full-time job.

She says, "I was almost depressed." She says that she was almost depressed after her shift. After she finished, she only had a few minutes to shower, eat and get to bed. Rao used to stay up late surfing the web, reading the news, and watching videos online until the early hours of the morning. source

Rao was engaged in what the Chinese call 'baofuxing' or'revenge bedtime procrastination'. , which can also be translated to'retaliatory staying awake late', was quickly spread on Twitter after a post from journalist Daphne K Lee. The phenomenon is when people who are unable to control their daytime lives refuse to go to bed early to feel more free in the late-night hours.

It is not known where exactly this term originated. Although the first mention was made by this reporter in a blog posted on November 2018, it is likely that its origins predate this date. Guangdong man, the author of the post, wrote that he felt "participated" to another person during work hours and could only "find him" once he was home and able to lie down. He wrote that he suffered from procrastination at night, and it was a sad thing. However, he felt that he gained a little freedom.

Although the phrase may have originated in China, the phenomenon described is probably widespread. Over-stretched workers around the globe are known to put off bedtime to make room for their personal time, even though it's not healthy for them.

More than 300 million Chinese suffer from sleep disorders. 

Nearly one-third of these people cannot fall asleep before 1 am.

They feel tired at work, but can't sleep at night. Others commented that they sleep until 2 AM, and not as late as the night before.

Some netizens joked that "Don't stay up too late, it's really bad to your phone."

Wang Jian, director of the Guang'anmen Psychological Department, said in an interview with CCTV, however, that eight hours sleep is not essential. It is not important to get eight hours of sleep. You should have four to five cycles of sleep.

Living in China

 living in China 

Know the cost of living in China

Shanghai was recently named the most expensive city in Asia for expats. However, transport is inexpensive there (0.57 cents per metro ticket on average, 1.85 € the minimum daytime taxi ride), as is the food if you adapt to the local food. Apart from Shanghai, Beijing or Hong-Kong, you can find well-equipped and decent accommodation for € 200 per month. Overall, life in China is cheaper than in Europe. On the other hand, it is necessary to be well informed about the costs of insurance, schools, health, which can quickly become very high.

The expat position in China today

Generally, expatriates have a higher salary than a Chinese in the same position as well as many advantages: company housing, medical coverage and school fees for their children paid by the company. However, more and more foreigners are hired under local employment contracts, and work under the same conditions as a Chinese employee. Under local contract, your vacation days, your working hours will therefore be the same as an employee. Chinese Taxation is not the same according to an expatriate contract or a local contract. It nevertheless remains advantageous for a French national thanks to a bilateral agreement between France and China. It is therefore important to negotiate the nature of your employment contract and prepare for a change in lifestyle.

Focus on Iran - China Relationships

 A month after the signing of a twenty-five-year "strategic cooperation agreement" between Iran and China, almost no details of its contents have been released. If some, in the United States as in Iran, pointed out, alarmed, a "major geopolitical change", sign of the pivot of Iran towards the East and of a rapprochement of the two countries vis-a-vis the United States, this partnership non-binding and still symbolic at this stage hardly constitutes a major development in Tehran's strategy. In the eyes of analysts, this partnership offers above all "a rhetorical" and "political" victory for Iran at a pivotal moment, as negotiations are underway in Vienna to save the Iran nuclear deal.


“So Iran can say to the West, 'Look! You will never be able to isolate us as you have done in the past ”, analyzes Dina Esfandiary, specialist in the Middle East within the think tank International Crisis Group. But the signing of this bilateral framework agreement does not exempt neither Tehran nor Beijing from the imperative of reaching a compromise with Washington on Iranian nuclear power. Its genesis is also linked to the nuclear "deal" signed in 2015 by Tehran with the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany. The denunciation of this "deal" by Washington, in 2018, and the reinstatement of American sanctions had brought an end to the talks started in 2016 by Beijing and Tehran on this partnership. The signing of the China-Iran deal, during the visit of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to Tehran on March 27, came at the same time as the relaunch of nuclear negotiations.

The success of these negotiations depends on the implementation of the partnership between Iran and China. The extent and timing of contracts that can then be signed between the two countries also depend on the progress and ultimately the outcome of the Vienna talks. Already in 2019, due to US sanctions, Beijing was forced to withdraw from the South Pars development project, a huge gas field in the Persian Gulf. "This framework agreement with China is for the moment mainly symbolic," argues Esfandyar Batmanghelidj, an economist specializing in Iran and founder of the Europe-Iran Business Forum. If the US sanctions were lifted [following a deal in Vienna], we would go from symbolic to real implementation of contracts and bonds. In that case, Iran could finally reap significant economic benefits from its deal with China. "

China and space expansion.

 China and the space expansion. 

On the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Chinese Communist Party in 1921, Beijing gave itself a beautiful gift: its first landing on Mars. Perched on a small platform, his rover Zhurong (name of a fire deity in Chinese mythology) touched down on the Red Planet on Saturday, May 15 at 1:18 a.m. PST. President Xi Jinping immediately addressed a word of congratulations to the team responsible for the mission, saluting, with grandiloquence, this crucial success for China's solar system exploration program, which leaves "the Chinese footprint on Mars for the future." first time… The motherland and the people will always remember your exceptional exploits! "

After spending three months around Mars in the company of the Tianwen-1 mission orbiter - the time to analyze the terrain and select a suitable site - the lander-rover pair therefore succeeded in overcoming all the difficulties encountered. 'involves entry into the Martian atmosphere, an obstacle course dubbed "the seven minutes of terror" by NASA. Since Mars is currently 320 million kilometers from Earth and a command, even traveling at the speed of light, takes almost eighteen minutes to travel that distance, the whole maneuver must be done. automatically. One failure and that's the crash guaranteed, as the European Space Agency bitterly experienced in 2016, with the failure of its Schiaparelli demonstrator.

Until this day, the United States was the only nation having succeeded in placing astromobiles on Mars: Sojourner in 1997, Spirit and Opportunity in 2004, Curiosity in 2012 and Perseverance in February 2021. Zhurong therefore breaks this “monopoly”, while waiting for the European rover Rosalind-Franklin of the ExoMars mission to try its luck in 2023. NASA has also shown itself to be a good player through the voice of its scientific missions manager, Thomas Zurbuchen, who congratulated on Twitter the Chinese space agency for its first Martian success. “Together with the global scientific community, I welcome the important contributions that this mission will make to the understanding of the Red Planet.
