Recommendation 1 from ‘Bloomberg’

Article Name:”China workers abroad becoming easy prey’’

By: ‘Editorial’

The article states that Chinese workers working abroad are becoming easy targets of becoming hostages, as it happened in Egypt and Sudan. China is willing to pay to get its workers release, which pushes the perpetrators to go after them. Further, China is also not in the powerful position to protect every citizen that works somewhere in the world and then there is also reluctance to deploy military, as a botched rescue operation would reflect very poorly on the leadership in China.

Summary:

All the reasons justify the situation, Chinese workers are becoming easy prey. China’s expansion outside of its boundaries was to encourage more investment abroad. However, it seems that China is not being able to handle all the pressure well. More workers it sends out, perhaps all of them are becoming victims to its weak policies to protect its workers.

Recommendation 2 from ‘The Times of India’

Article Name:‘No time to lose’

By: ‘Editorial’

Article states that it’s no secret anymore that economy is the problem. And the meeting on monday should have seen concrete decisions of reforms and should have pushed the policies that have long been stalled. Further, the government should have made every effort to make sure that steps are taken to dispel this economic gloom. However, this didn’t happen, instead it played it safe by issuing restrictions against the opposition and Anna Harare led movement.

Summary:

Time has gone to criticise the opposition or anyone for that matter. And time has come to answer questions and push for reforms if they want to make any progress in terms of economy and also the elections that cold spell Congress’s doom, if it does not focus on governance.

Recommendation 3 from ‘The New York Times’

Article Name:‘Salt, we misjudged you’

By: ‘Gary Taubes’

The article is exploring whether the salt is good or bad. Article states that even if too much salt is bad for the consumers, there has not been enough evidence to prove so and it has been more of a hypothesis. And this ‘eat less salt’ is a very difficult suggestion to defend. Article has explored various researches that support less salt diets and also the research which suggested that there is damage which is caused by less salt diet. Further, article states that there is an attitude which forces people to neglect studies that are against the prevailing beliefs and more studies need to be done.

Summary:

You have to read in depth to find, if low salt diet is seriously good or not. However, as my real world experience tells me, too less salt will hinder your body functioning to such an extent that you might not be even able to walk. Of course, we need to remember that it causes hypertension too. Perhaps more studies need to be conducted in both the sides of it.
