Lazy crane operators making $250,000 a year exacerbating port crisis, truckers say

LONG BEACH, California — Crane operators who belong to a powerful union and earn up to $250,000 a year transferring containers from ships to trucks are worsening the supply chain crisis that threatens Christmas by goofing off on the job, frustrated truckers told the Washington Examiner.

A Chinese father publicly broke down in the middle of a road because his child could not solve a mathematics equation.

The breakdown: A resident of Kunshan in Jiangsu eastern China laid down in the middle of a road as he begged police to detain him because his daughter failed to solve a simple math problem, reported South China Morning Post.

The Chinese father surnamed Gao told a police officer, “My daughter subtracted 700 from 800. She said the result is 900.” Gao said he was “so angry and so helpless” that he did not want to go home. The police officer reportedly persuaded him to go home after helping him up and taking him to a nearby footpath.

Reactions: According to the South China Morning Post’s report, the reactions on social media regarding the incident were predictable. One person on Weibo commented, “I am sure this girl is his biological daughter. You can see his IQ is not high either.”

“I suggest he go visit the depression clinic,” another user wrote.

China drafts law to punish parents for children's bad behavior

BeijingParents in China whose young children exhibit "very bad behavior" or commit crimes could face punishment under proposed new legislation.

In the draft of the family education promotion law, guardians will be reprimanded and ordered to go through family education guidance programs if prosecutors find very bad or criminal behavior in children under their care.
"There are many reasons for adolescents to misbehave, and the lack of or inappropriate family education is the major cause," said Zang Tiewei, spokesman of the Legislative Affairs Commission under the National People's Congress (NPC), China's rubber-stamp parliament.
The draft family education promotion law, which will be reviewed at the NPC Standing Committee session this week, also urges parents to arrange time for their children to rest, play, and exercise.

Beijing has exercised a more assertive paternal hand this year, from tackling the addiction of youngsters to online games -- deemed a form of "spiritual opium" -- to clamping down on "blind" worship of internet celebrities.
In recent months, the Education Ministry has limited gaming hours for minors, allowing them to play online games for one hour on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only.

First Hmong priest ordained in Vietnam

Father Joseph Ma A Ca is expected to increase evangelization among ethnic groups

Catholics in a northern Vietnamese diocese expect a new Hmong ethnic priest to carry out evangelization effectively among ethnic groups.

Bishop Peter Nguyen Van Vien, apostolic administrator of Hung Hoa, ordained Hmong man Joseph Ma A Ca and 10 others at Son Loc Cathedral in Son Tay town near Hanoi on Oct. 13.

Local Catholics including the new priests’ family members were not present at the ordination due to social distancing measures to contain Covid-19.

Woman raped on train as bystanders did nothing, police say

A woman was raped by a stranger on a commuter train in suburban Philadelphia in the presence of other riders who a police official said “should have done something."

Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt of the Upper Darby Police Department said officers were called to the 69th Street terminal around 10 p.m. Wednesday after the assault on the westbound train on the Market-Frankford Line.

An employee of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority who was in the vicinity as the train went past called police to report that “something wasn't right" with a woman aboard the train, Bernhardt said.

SEPTA police waiting at the next stop found the woman and arrested a man. The woman was taken to a hospital.

Bernhardt called the victim an “unbelievably strong woman" who provided police with a lot of information. She did not know her attacker, he said.

“She’s on the mend," Bernhardt said. “Hopefully she will get through this."

The entire episode was captured on surveillance video that showed other people on the train at the time, Bernhardt said.

“There was a lot of people, in my opinion, that should have intervened; somebody should have done something," Bernhardt said. “It speaks to where we are in society; I mean, who would allow something like that to take place? So it’s troubling."

Fiston Ngoy, 35, has been charged with rape, aggravated indecent assault and related counts, according to Delaware County court records. Bernhardt said he is known to both SEPTA and Upper Darby police.

Court documents don't list a defense attorney, and a listed number for him couldn't be found Saturday.

SEPTA issued a statement calling it a “horrendous criminal act" and urging anyone witnessing such a thing to report it to authorities.

“There were other people on the train who witnessed this horrific act, and it may have been stopped sooner if a rider called 911," the authority said.
