>Early rice output up 2.7%

China's early rice output saw a 2.7% increase this year as per unit yield improved, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Wednesday. The output reached 28.02 million tons, up 723,000 tons from 2020.

Despite a slight decrease in cultivation area due to droughts in southern China and adjustment in crop structure, the per unit area yield of early rice increased 3% year on year, according to Li Suoqiang, an official from NBS. A bumper summer harvest and an increase in early rice production have laid a solid foundation for stable grain production for the year and provided strong support for a good start to the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), Li said.

>China cracks 185,000 telecoms, online fraud cases

Chinese public security organs have cracked 185,000 cases related to telecoms and online fraud, and arrested 247,000 suspects from January to July, the Ministry of Public Security announced Wednesday.

The number of telecoms and online fraud cases fell for two consecutive months in June and July, compared with the same period last year, said the ministry.

By the end of June, Chinese police had also arrested 36,000 suspects in 20,000 criminal cases related to food, drugs, the environment, and intellectual property rights, the ministry said.

Over 3,000 missing or abducted children were rescued during a nationwide campaign launched in January, it added.

>Beijing's teacher rotation policy

Primary and middle school teachers in Beijing's public school system will be required to take part in rotation programs to further improve education equity and quality in the city.

Teachers and principals who have worked at the same school for more than six years will be asked to shift to another school and share their knowledge and experience with new colleagues and students. Educators who are more than five years away from retirement are eligible for the program.

The rotation programs will be carried out in different ways based on participants' positions, in which principals will rotate within the district, outstanding teachers equally distributed, and average teachers rotated on assigned jobs.

Districts with weak teaching talent can get better support via methods such as dual-teacher classes during the program.

The new policy provides incentives for qualified educators to move, such as higher pay and rotation participation being taken into account when promotion is considered.

>Japan stops use of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine

Japan will halt the use of 1.63 million doses of Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine after reports of foreign substances in several lots, drugmaker Takeda and the health ministry said on Thursday.

Takeda, which is in charge of sales and distribution of the Moderna shot in Japan, said it had informed Moderna and "requested an urgent investigation". Takeda did not detail the nature of the contamination, but said it had not so far received any reports of health concerns arising from affected doses.

The health ministry said it would work with Takeda to secure alternative doses to avoid disruption to the country's vaccine program.

Around 43% of Japan's population is currently fully vaccinated, but the country is battling a record surge of virus cases driven by the more contagious Delta variant.
