    A recent report by Sin Chew Daily revealed that this year has seen a significant increase in the number of Chinese youths applying to become teachers. According to sources from the Education Ministry, the number of Chinese secondary school leavers applying for the Bachelor of Education (PISMP) programme has reached a record high. Chua Kim Boon, the president of Dong Zong’s Selangor and Kuala Lumpur chapters, highlighted this trend during his chapter’s annual general meeting. He expressed hope that this increase in applications would help address the shortage of teachers in the long run and fill up all available spots in the PISMP programme for this year.

    In May, Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek stated that there were approximately 18,000 vacant teaching positions in the country. Dong Zong, also known as the United Chinese School Committees’ Association, aims to promote and develop Chinese education in Malaysia while facilitating cooperation between school boards and teachers across Chinese schools in the country.

    Oriental Daily reported an incident in Shanghai, China, where a woman threw a public tantrum and attacked an ehailing driver after he refused to have sex with her. Apparently seeking revenge against her boyfriend, the woman propositioned the driver, who calmly explained that he was married and politely rejected her advances. However, this rejection enraged the woman, leading her to have a public meltdown. Video footage of the incident shows the woman repeatedly punching a car window. Other ehailing drivers intervened to stop her, but she became even angrier and physically assaulted the driver who had rejected her. The driver reported the incident to the police, and the video of the incident went viral online, with many internet users commending the driver for maintaining his integrity and not taking advantage of the emotionally vulnerable woman.
