Yet, despite a 15 per cent growth in the overall student body, enrolments in higher level maths and science subjects are either declining or plateauing.

This is very interesting because Geography is not a very popular subject anymore starting from the year 2003 - 2013.

Beijing's Pollution

Beijing's Pollution | My inspiration |

Glenn Cades Colada's insight:

Beijing's pollution.


This is very interesting because it comes to show how humans have evolved and how they don't really care about the Earth's atmosphere.

Great picture to show the two sectors of China's society. In Beijing we see the combination of industry and post industrialized.

This picture taken by a photographer with the perfect lighting is brilliant....that is, if you're into deceiving people that the pollution from these power plants stays away from the higher class businesses and residences.  Looking at this picture you see the smoke coming from the power plant in China far in the distance creating a yellowish hue that could be thought to be from the sun.  Then closer in the scene we see what appears to be businesses and potentially some peoples homes.  This area is in a totally different color from the yellow we see to be associated with the pollution from the power plant.  Here we see a blue, commonly associated with clean water, covering the entirety of this area.  With the difference in colors these places seem to be as different as possible from each other.  In reality though, smog doesn't just stay in one area of the city where it is produced, but spreads throughout the entirety of a city.  There are no restraints on where the pollution can and can't be, it is free flowing into communities where people work and live.  If you're trying to sell a house here this picture wouldn't be a bad idea to use, although most natives aren't oblivious to what is really going on.

This picture is interesting to say the least, it depicts two different cities, even though it is the same city. the picture does a good job at showing the major problem that pollution is causing to Beijing. While showing a smog surrounded city behind a clean, yet clouded looking city, drives this point of pollution home and raises the question is putting large factories and toxic fumes in the air, more important than the well being of your citizens?
