The Student Pulse asks about health

Last Spring, 12 students committed suicide in Wuhan, Hubei, prompting the Chinese Education Department to organize a meeting of educators and Communist Party officials from 81 universities to discuss the rising tide of suicides by university students in China.

The Wuhan incident is not isolated; it is among a rash of suicides by Chinese students recently reported by the media. One of these reports came from China’s capital, where a third-year law student at Beijing University hung himself from a tree at Fragrant Mountain, a park outside of the city. A Beijing Forestry University student is said to have hung himself just two days later.

Compared to most industrialized countries, the suicide rate among Chinese students is not alarmingly high, but a closer look at the statistics reveals a recent spike in the rate. It’s this spike that has prompted education officials to address the problem.

While WZU(Wenzhou University) school authority has put much more emphasis on students, for instance, psychological counseling center has been put online, a series of lectures have been hold. In order to get more information on our campus, the DXC has focused much more on students’ health and many students have been involved.

This issue’s Pulse Survey of Da Xue Crossing (DXC, an orgnization) probed student health on campus, including students’ physical and psychological health.

The DXC Pulse Survey randomly sampled the opinions of 700 students campus wide,10 percent of the student body, by the questionnaires we’d offered, then we collected all of the questionnaires back, and did the statistics within two days. All the 14 colleges were represented in the survey. This is considered as an accurate and representative sample.

The survey reveals that students may not be comfortable seeking help from their parents for psychological difficulties. Asked whom they would consult for help, 41 percent of students say their peers, 18 percent say they would seek professional help off campus, 16 percent would choose their family, 12 percent would consult no one at all, and 13 percent say they would choose other options.

Chinese sociologists and psychologists have put forth several explanations, including pressure to succeed at university, a competitive labor market, tuition costs, the high expectations of parents, and failed relationships.

Many, however, suggest the root problem is the rapid change taking place in Chinese society. Traditional social values are clashing with the tide of modernization, and leaving students with a conflicting sense of self and place.

The survey’s results show some complains in students, and we hope they could tackle these complaints in a proper way and our school authorities could make great efforts to help us.


Botany, the study of plants, occupies a peculiar position in the history of human knowledge. For many thousands of years it was the one field of awareness about which humans had anything more than the vaguest of insights. It is impossible to know today just what our Stone Age ancestors knew about plants, but form what we can observe of pre-industrial societies that still exist a detailed learning of plants and their properties must be extremely ancient.

This is logical. Plants are the basis of the food pyramid for all living things even for other plants. They have always been enormously important to the welfare of people not only for food, but also for clothing, weapons, tools, dyes, medicines, shelter, and a great many other purposes. Tribes living today in the jungles of the Amazon recognize literally hundreds of plants and know many properties of each. To them, botany, as such, has no name and is probably not even recognized as a special branch of ” knowledge” at all.

Unfortunately, the more industrialized we become the farther away we move from direct contact with plants, and the less distinct our knowledge of botany grows. Yet everyone comes unconsciously on an amazing amount of botanical knowledge, and few people will fail to recognize a rose, an apple, or an orchid.

When our Neolithic ancestors, living in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago, discovered that certain grasses could be harvested and their seeds planted for richer yields the next season the first great step in a new association of plants and humans was taken.

Grains were discovered and from them flowed the marvel of agriculture: cultivated crops. From then on, humans would increasingly take their living from the controlled production of a few plants, rather than getting a little here and a little there from many varieties that grew wild- and the accumulated knowledge of tens of thousands of years of experience and intimacy with plants in the wild would begin to fade away.

Ampatuans and Mangudadatus unite to support Guico as senator

Davao City- The Ampatuan and Mangudadatu clans recently found common ground when they endorsed the candidacy of Ramon Guico as senator for the 2010 elections. Ibrahim Mangudadatu of Buluan town, Yacob Ampatuan of Rajah Buayan town, Norodim Ampatuan of Mamasapano town and Saudi Sian Ampatuan of Datu Saudi town met over lunch and expressed support for League of Municipalities of the Philippines President Ramon Guico. Mangudadatu said that they have been a witness to the efforts Guico has made for the people through his programs focused on Gamot, Edukasyon, Trabaho and Serbisyo. “The Mangudadatus believe Ramon Guico is the voice we need in the Senate, as he understands what the local government needs, being the President of all the mayors in the Philippines for nine years”, he added. Over 80 municipal mayors from Southern Mindanao met with Guico to discuss the strengthening of local government units in order to hasten delivery of services at the grassroots level. Among the strategies discussed was the push to increase the share of LGU of the internal revenue allotment. Guico has earlier made the IRA allotment a central issue in his campaign. “Around 80 percent of what the citizens expect from the government is done in the local level, yet we only get a small amount of the national budget. Even just a 10 percent increase will mean more schools, better hospitals, and faster services that will be immediately felt by the ordinary Filipinos,” he said. Ramon Guico is the President of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines for nine years, and Mayor of Binalonan town in Pangasinan, a first class municipality. He is credited for transforming the LMP from a partisan political organization into a developmental organization working closely with international organizations in delivering basic services to the people. The LMP has given free technical assistance and governance programs to local municipalities and leaders in the areas of population control, waste segregation, education, employment and healthcare.
