>Progress in creating wholesome fan culture

China has made progress in creating a wholesome fan culture after special operations against law-breaking and improper acts in the world of entertainment fandom.

The country's cyberspace watchdog has removed over 150,000 pieces of harmful information from online platforms and chat groups amid efforts to create a clean internet environment for starstruck web users, said the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission.

The commission urged websites and online platforms to disable functions that would induce fans to boost some stars' popularity in a dishonest manner, and to help restrict underage fans from irrationally adoring stars.

The National Radio and Television Administration also carried out a one-month operation against online variety shows in a bid to curb irrational worship of viewership and money in the fandom world.

>Teachers trained for underserved regions

About 10,000 teachers' college students will receive targeted training annually starting this year, in a bid to improve the performance of primary and middle school teachers in underdeveloped areas in China's central and western regions, according to a recent plan. The special training will be conducted by six normal universities directly under the Ministry of Education (MOE) and local-level normal colleges for schools in counties that emerged from poverty and along the land borders, says the plan released by nine departments including MOE and the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

The students should make a pledge to return to serve in primary and middle schools in designated counties for at least six years, the plan says.

Students enrolled in the plan will be exempt from tuition and accommodation fees and will receive living subsidies.

>134m Chinese covered by long-term care insurance

A total of 134 million Chinese people have long-term care insurance, according to official data. Forty-nine cities across the country were listed in a pilot program to provide the insurance.

China's National Healthcare Security Administration and Ministry of Civil Affairs recently issued a document, setting standards to determine disability levels for those who will receive long-term care services.

The insurance covers the cost of care services when the insured is unable to undertake activities needed for daily living.




>Social media triggers inferiority

The Sunday Times spoke to 23 people including social workers, counselors, psychologists and parents, who said the impact of social media on the mental health of young people in Singapore is concerning. And not just in terms of cyber bullying.

Cho Ming Xiu, founder and executive director of mental advocacy non-profit Campus PSY, said most young people find it difficult not to check on their friends on social media and compare their lives. He added: "You can't just do well in your studies. You have to be an all-arounder - you have to secure a good internship at a reputable company."

Psychologists say the deluge of attractive posts can trigger feelings of inferiority or inadequacy, especially among young people with less experience to distinguish the social media world from real life.
