In Need of More Resources from the Local Communities to Pull the At-Risk Children Back

The problem of these, at-risk teens, and there’s not enough resource provided in their local areas, which makes it harder, to save them, to keep them on that right paths of their lives, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The juvenile criminals are mostly in drugs, and fraud, this is closely related to the society’s current situations, the teens all have a cell phone, and are using the social networking apps, and can easily gather up with their peers, and have a bigger chance of getting into the new age drugs more.  And, there’s a high percentage of teens who’d gotten on the wrong side of the laws who’d been found to have the problems with their psychological wellbeing, and none of these can be resolved by the justice systems.

Guan (a false name), due to his elders’ spoiling him, started behaving badly, his father could no longer teach him wrong from right since a very long time ago, as he’d left home, he’d gotten involved with the gangs through the interactive social networking apps, and had a “godfather”. For Guan, “my godfather was kinder to me, gotten me work at the casinos, where I could make $3,000N.T. a night!”

Because he worked in the casinos, Guan was arrested, and, as the court lets him go, he’d returned to the side of his “godfather” and met and gotten involved with more gangsters.  Later, as his godfather was on the run from the law, he’d died, the court judge found him a place to stay, and he’d slowly, returned his life back on track, and, became a sports figure because of his interests.

“Chih” had been raised by his maternal grandmother, because the tribal regions he was raised in had the drug abuse problems, the first time he was caught for using drugs, he was not yet ten, and now, at age sixteen, he’d become, a frequent customer of the courthouses, other than the drug charges, he also got caught for fraud, as well as, assault.

The justice put “Chih” on probation, placed him in a home, the court offered counseling to him, they’d even sent him to rehab to help him kick his habit of abusing drugs, and had the psychiatrists discuss his case together, “Chih” loved the freedom of the mountains, ran away from the Daylight Books where he was working, set up by the pastor and his wife who’d treated him like he were their young, headed back to the tribe and helped his maternal grandmother watch and took care of the means of the grocery shops.

The judge stated, that “Chih” was not the only adolescent who’d gotten caught doing something wrong, to pull all of them back successfully, the drugs needed to be rooted up from the tribal, the community levels; and, there’s also the need for psychotherapy as well, counseling, the detox, the rehabilitations.  The court can, transfer the youths to the rehabs, but, it’s still in questions, that after these kids get out of treatment, are there going to be enough resources to keep them staying on the right tracks.

And so, this is a serious, problem, that we’re having here, these kids are from the lesser areas, of tribes, of distant regions, which means, that there would be not enough resources locally, and most of these kids joined up with gangs, because they can’t fit in, they don’t feel they belong anywhere, and the gangs are the only place they feel that there are, someone who cared for them.

With the Supports from the Local Communities, the Caretakers Stopped Having So Much Pressures

The needs of the caretakers of mentally ill persons that this foundation had noted, but, had the government here noted it also???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

In Four Years, Seventy-One Mental Health Community Centers Set Up, Helping the Patients Recover Close to Home

The care, the treatment of mental patients isn’t just in the hospitals, but, they’d needed the long-term community support, the resources, to get them back to living like regular people.  The Department of Sanitation Welfare had allotted sixty million dollar N.T. in its budgets for the post-acute care program, to combine the medical professional help with the community care, offering the patients their needed care after their releases from the mental hospitals, and help reduce the stresses of the family members, and the overload of the hospitals in treating the patients.

The allocation of the resources in the community outreaches, can also give the families room to breathe.  The C.E.O. of Zhongwha Mental Health Association, Lu observed, that the families of schizophrenic patients normally feel helpless, upset, to the point of cutting off all their, social interactions with the outside world, they are especially in need of the community-oriented outreach help.

Lu suggested that seventy-percent of the patients should be resocialized so they can live in the local communities, and not be separated from the environment long-term in the mental institutions, through the cooperative means of the long-term care agencies, and the mental health department, then, a more complete care provision program will be offered.

Shen also told, that the caretaking means of schizophrenic patients primarily landed on the family members, and it’s quite burdensome, and the government resource allocations are especially important in this, a long-term community support system need to get set up.

And so, these are, the needs of the families of the mentally ill patients, and, they’re in desperate need, because, just like in long-term care, all of these families are isolated in the caretaking means, and the government is only, beginning, to notice their needs, by opening up these mental health support centers for them, and hopefully, with these mental health support centers up and running, it can reduce the number of tragedies caused by mental illnesses.

The Variations of My New Nesting Alone

Here comes, the empty nest, how to occupy oneself, by finding hobbies, and, learning to adapt to life on your own in the elderly years maintaining that connection to your friends, your acquaintances, translated…

With the compounded milestone of retirement and my wife’s death, it’d caused me to lose the focal point of my suddenly.  I’d started immersing myself into a ton of activities for the retired persons, hiking, traveling, writing, book clubs, birdwatching, calligraphy, Buddhist teachings, Tai-Chi, etc., etc., etc., what everybody else’s “continuing education” for me is just “rushing to make the deadlines of my assignments,” and “killing my time”, nothing more.

Later, my youngest daughter got married first, moved out of our home, and started a brand new perfect family with my son-in-law.  As she was pregnant, I’d immediately signed up for the nanny classes, and worked hard in learning, and to get myself, certified.  As my young granddaughter was born, I’d gone to stay with the family to take care of her for a while, but they’d felt, that my certification was from the books, and I didn’t have any real experiences.  And so, they would take the advices of those parents online, and research the means to care for their young, and bring it up in discussions with me, to learn with me.

what he was left with after his children grew up…photo from online

As my granddaughter got a bit older, they considered how hard it was for me to care for their young, they’d placed their daughter at the daycare center, and only when they are too busy at work, and couldn’t get away, then, they would call me up to look after my granddaughter.

My eldest daughter lives with me, originally, we’d gotten into arguments when we had the dogs in the house, after she was married, her husband moved in, and it’d added to the complexity of interaction, and inconvenience of life.  Although we shared the same residence, we’d interacted like strangers, and the home I’d lived in my whole life, seemed too strange to me now.

Both homes, although, there are the bedrooms for me, but, I’d felt like an extra on the set.

Once as I’d visited a friend who’d moved into a retirement village, I was attracted to the services provided by the retirement living community, and thought about moving in.  And yet, in my conversations with him, I’d caught that hint of how it wasn’t as wonderful as I may have imagined, because there’s no people our age who’d cared for one another, and I’d decided, to put that idea on the backburner then.

And, there was a resident I had for rent which was about to expire, and, I’d started wondering if I should continue renting the place out or not?  I’d thought about it, my two daughters are married, with their own families and homes; and I’m an elderly person, with the free bus pass now, from before my retirement, I’d worked overseas and could care for myself, living alone is second nature to me.  And so, I’d decided, to let go of what’s tying me back, take that very first step toward my own independence at old age, took that rental space off the markets, moved out of my old nest, and started, living, alone.

As I’d moved in to my “new place”, the most important thing was I’d felt, that the twenty-four hours in the day belonged to solely me, I have all the time to use at my own preferences.  I now had enough time to read, to preview my school work, to research, to write down the lines that touched me which I read from the books………then, suddenly, these things I used to do to kill the time, no longer served that purpose anymore.

And because of how convenient it was, living on my own, my former classmates, my new ones, my old friends, my new acquaintances, to my home for gathering, teas, meals, chats, and we’d all interacted freely with one another, come and go as they pleased.  And this was the never-before sense of openness I now experience regularly.

Letting go of the self more, treat my self kind, I’m currently working on growing older, alone.

And so, this is a lesson that we all must learn to master eventually, because we will all age, and we will all face up with the means of children leaving the nest, and suddenly, we got too much time on our hands, and like what this man did, he’d worked hard, developing his own interests, and, found a way to keep up with his contacts, and continue to socialize with his external environment as he age.

The Complaints of Sexual Harassment Increased by 2.6 Time in Five Years

As the “victims” realized that they should NOT be, silenced, and the laws are now, protecting them more, no longer silenced we are!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Physical Harassments Make Up Fifty-One Percent, the Biggest, “Sending the Sexually Illicit Footages or Secretly Filming” Came in Second at Thirty-Four Percent

Based off of the statistical measures of sexual harassment, the cases are on the rise in the past five years, from the 662 cases back in 2017 to 1,712 cases last year, there’s a growth of 2.6 times, of them, seventy-five percent were valid claims, which showed, that the people no longer silenced when they get harassed, they are now, standing up, fighting for their own, rights.

The head of department, Chang in the Protection of Department of Health & Social Welfares stated, that ninety-six percent of the victims are females, sixty-percent were under age thirty, and the cases are mostly physical harassments, making up fifty-one-percent, then at twenty-six percent of “harassment by sexually illicit images or voyeurism”, “verbal harassments” made up fourteen-percent.

Chang told, because of how everybody has a cell phone now, and the guarantees of anonymity online, and the immediate and quickly passing of the internet, in recent five years, the sexual harassment by “sending pornographic footage of image’ rose up from sixteen percent to thirty-four percent; “stalking and improper pursuits” went from forty-percent to sixty-percent.

The supervisor of Fuller Chi Counseling Center, Chiu told, that the sexual harassment behaviors may not be notable, but they would cause trauma for the victims, and, women are more prone to show signs of trauma than men.  He’d once helped a female high school student, who was sexually harassed by a male adult family member when she was in the elementary years, she’d not recognized the signs, but as she’d taken the health classes in the high school level, she’d started showing signs of depression, and her academic performances declined, she’d become withdrawn in social interactions, and other symptoms.

The Gender Research Graduate Studies professor, Lo from World News University stated that in recent years, the cases of sexual harassments are on the rise, means that more and more victims are willing to stand up and out, it’s just, that there are the majority of cases still hidden in the dark.

The attorney, Kuo stated, that other than the objective facts, and physical evidences, whether or not sexual harassment cases stand up in court also relied on the personal experiences of the victims.  She’d reminded, to weight and measure the interactions with others, otherwise, if charged and convicted, the individuals will be paying the sums of anywhere from $10,000N.T.s to $100,000N.T.s.

And so, because the survivors of these crimes are now, becoming more and more aware of their own rights, and their own bodies, that’s why there are more and more cases that are, currently popping out left and right, and this is good, but it’s still not quite enough, to stop the bad behaviors of these, perps, because, there will always be those who can’t keep their hands to themselves, sex predators in the world, but at least, these survivors are beginning to speak up and out.

Becoming More Environmentally Aware

Changes that come, with the self first, the power of, one!  Translated…

The culture in Taiwan is that everybody has a cup of bubble tea in her/his hand, me too.  With the designer style cup, walking down that street, I’d imagined, that my whole flair was, elevated.  Sticking that straw in, to sip the coffee or the cold tea or juice, the pressures of work, of school, suddenly got, left behind, although it’s nothing grandeur, it does, make us feel, those, little, blessings upon our lives.

And, I was watching a nature show, and a fifteen-centimeter long straw got pulled out of the nostrils of a sea turtle, and the environmental volunteers’ saving the green turtle, as it’d, defecated out the plastic bags, that was, eye-opening and awakening to me; and that was when I was alerted, to that problem that I’d, thought about, but quickly, cast out of mind from before—the garbage humans left from drinking the drinks had, caused the disasters in nature.

And, to give up the convenience, choosing the more environmentally-friendly, seemingly, it’s too easy, and yet, when we put that into practice, it’s anything, but; eating out, I would, from time to time, to bring my own, chopsticks, and I’d, allowed myself to use the one-time eating utensils, and told myself, that I will, remember to bring the eating utensils the next time I eat out, and as I’d gone to buy the drinks, I’d normally, left my mug at home, and it wouldn’t be until, I was down to the final sips, would I recall, that I should’ve used my own mug, and then, I’d be, filled with, guilt.

what made her become, aware…photo from online

These are the hardships of allowing ourselves to do what we want to, and being friendly to the environment, I need to make a chance, and hope, that my tiny action, can become, that driving kindness, and, as everybody does her/his share for the environment, then, the world will be way better in the futures to come.  There’s not just the species of humans on the planet, but also, millions of billions of other species of living organisms, and, we can’t destroy it all, in the 1.2 billion plastic cups from the tea shops estimated of consumption in Taiwan in 2021.

From the struggles, to getting used to it, as I head out now, I would, make sure, I had my own drinking cup, my own eating utensils, and, I’d, saved up on the water and the electricity along the way now, turned off the lights when I leave a room, to reduce my own needs of materials, and reduced the number of time I’d gone to buy the teas from the shops.  There is a limited resources on earth, wasting it all, or, taking care of the environment, I’d selected to take the latter, the more troubling, but the option that set my mind, at ease.

And so, this is one person’s, change, in her realization of her own tendencies, to how she’d come to realize, that we’d produced too many once-per-use trash in plastic, that’s damaging the creatures of nature, and she’d, taken the initiative, to make that change, which is a first step, to bringing about change, in the, larger spectrum of the world.

They Took Turns, Raping a Woman Who was Passed Out Drunk the Two Men Tried to Weasel Their Ways Out of the Blames, Sentenced to Ten Years in Prison

This is still nowhere, NEAR severe enough, the punishment for these two LOSERS who took advantage of the woman, passed out from drinking, and raped her, and the government stated that they’re, CRACKING down on these cases of sexual assaults?  Yeah right, get real here!  Crime and punishment, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The stockbroker, Yeh invited a woman to an antique auction, afterwards, he’d gone with her to celebrate the winning with an antiques dealer, Kuo, as the woman passed out from drinking too much, Kuo and Yeh took turns raping her, and, as the charges were processed, they’d testified that “she’d, enjoyed it”, the highest courts found that both men were with NO remorse, and sentenced each to ten years in prison on forced sexual act.

The verdict pointed out, that on the evening of December 25th, 2016, Yeh was invited to an auction in Taipei, he’d invited the victim female using the excuse of introducing her to work, after the auctions, he’d gone to a restaurant, to drink the strong boozes with Kuo, then, went to a bar to continue their, celebrations, the woman passed out, and was lifted to the mansion belonging to Kuo in Tienmu.

At three in the morn the following day, the two disregarded how the woman said no, Yeh and Kuo raped the woman on the couch; at seven in the morn, as the woman is still passed out from drinking, they’d taken turns kissing her, grabbing her breasts, then, raped her again.  The woman called the police, the two were charged.

Yeh claimed that he was, interacting “naturally” with the woman, that the woman kissed him back too, and, that the surveillance in the mansion showed that the interactions was mild, and there wasn’t any means of her, trying to, fight the men off, he’d believed, that the woman, “was enjoying it”.  Kuo testified, that the woman kissed him on her own means, that she was fully aware of what she was doing throughout the whole thing.

The Shihlin District Court reviewed over the surveillance footages, found that the woman moved her head left and right multiple times, covered up her breasts, waved both her arms, pushed the men off to show that she didn’t want to have ex, and, attempted to block both men from touching her, and she’d shown signs of post-traumatic stress, and gotten treated at the psychiatrist’s office, which showed that she’d suffered the traumas, the courts believed that the woman was, raped, and, sentenced both males to ten years each.

The two men appealed, claimed that the woman was fearful of contracting an STD, that was why she’d sued them, but the High Courts didn’t believe them, believed that the two in order to satisfy their own sexual desires, disregarded how the woman had told them no multiple times, and raped her, that they’d shown no sign of remorse, hadn’t reached a settlement agreement with the victim they’d raped, maintained the verdict of the first trial.  The Highest Courts found that the original verdict was justified, tossed back the appealed, case closed.

And yeah, this is still not, punishment enough, and the other way of interpreting this, is that because we women are passed out from drinking, you FUCKING (and your point being???) sons-of-bitches (still not the four-legged “varieties” here!) can rape us, all you want, and this time, these two mother @#$%ERS did not get away, but who knows, maybe, the times after this one, there would be more mother @#$%ERS who believe that they could, get that, slap on the wrist for RAPE!

On the Matter of Alexander Leehom Wang: from Peeping into the Private Lives of the Stars, to the Collective Loss of Hoard Responsibilities

How the case of infidelity, the bad behaviors of the singer, Wang is only, the tips of the iceberg, of a bigger problem of this, society of ours here!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The singer-songwriter’s divorce became a nuclear bomb for the Asian entertainment circle, the rants online is never-ending.  Although he’d announced his temporary exit of the entertainment industry, but the affair, his sex addictions are still, being discussed by the entertainment industries, and, the ricochet bullets are flying all over the places now.  The reputation that Wang built up on himself of being a gentle, honest, good man, a high quality performer, all destroyed in an instant, and this became a mirror of truth, reflected out the deteriorating culture of Taiwanese entertainment industry, and the wayward shift of values in the society in Taiwan, and this, should be the topic we need to discuss, aside from this “show” that we’re, currently, watching right now.

This time, although Lee, Wang’s wife, is the less capable party of this marriage, but, she’d used her sharp words, and her accurate timing, to HIT Wang back, and she’d scored, and the online community noted her as the “hammer of Thor”.  After the physical abuse of the legislator, Kao by her boyfriend, Lin, the people are more critical of violence, of the party that wasn’t, faithful enough in a marriage, it’d shown, how Taiwan IS, progressing, toward a more gender equal society.  On the other hands, the incident of Leehom Wang also showed of the false image of a “high quality” performer, the weakening of morality, and responsibilities, and the trends of him being a “giant baby” and “mama’s boy” got out too.  the seemingly free and open environment, is actually, quite the opposite, plus the manipulations from the press, it’d, weakened the citizens means to check the facts before they take their sides.

The entertainment industries are with a ton of good looking men and women, and it’d become, a hotbed for sex scandals.  But, on the matter of image completely collapsing, Wang’s case was the first few; reason for it wasn’t because he’s divorced from Lee, but because of his bad means of handling these, crises.  For instance, toward the accusations brought against him, he’d neither affirmed, nor denied, not made an apology for his, wrongdoing, and, his father’s coming out to speak on his behalf, it’d shown further, how his marriage had, gone bad.  Plus, using the Japanese old name to refer to Lee, his father had, caused even more of the effects of what he’d, wanted to, achieve.  Especially of how whenever Wang got into trouble, he’d looked to his parents to solve it for him, but, not fought for the custody, or even, the rights of joint custody for his own three children, it’d made us note, how irresponsible he truly is, toward the society, as well as, his own, family.

stars who were caught, cheating! Found online

With Lee’s disclosures of Wang’s many bad behaviors, with the embellishments from the paparazzi, we also observed, the abnormal biosphere of the entertainment industry.  Of these, some of the singers used the idolizing of the fans, to extort, and to deceive; some of the artists even used the interactions with other artists, stars, to increase ones’ own fame, and popularity; and once something happened to the individuals, they’d immediately, severed off connections, or tried covering for the individuals.  In the movie industries, are there only the sex, the rich, the fun and party, that’s, common to all?  In, seeing the stars that we are closely relating to started derailing from the right means of behaving, wouldn’t the friends warn each other, or would they just, watch the individuals, keep on, heading down that track of, self-destruction?

In recent years, the media only cared about the number of hits, and it’d, added to the expansion of the cases of infidelity by Leehom Wang, and some of the already forgotten cases are dug back out again.  And because of this, in exposing each other’s bad behaviors, there were the performers who’d, overdosed and rushed to the hospitals; the singers posting the warning phrases toward sex, and, members of the online community immediately reacted that it was similar to Wang’s bad behaviors.  This not just, added to the heated debate, but it would also, add to how the public sees the members of the entertainment industry as, “All the same”, and, those in the movie industries, the singers who are wise, should take heed.  And, the intelligent members of the audience, also need to remain rational, to not get fooled by the performances, or follow the crowds and blame whoever it is that the crowds are, blaming.

The public issues votes just ended, Tsai’s government is doing the budget case of the city and county of Hsinchu’s merging together, Wang’s affairs, sex addictions is covering all the discussion spaces online, surely, the president is considering the matter.  The former head of the county of Kaohsiung, Yang beckoned the public on FB, “to go easy on Leehom Wang”, and stated, that there are, eighty, ninety percent in the politics who have the affairs, that we should, demand more about them.  Set aside that Yang may have exaggerated, but, from the Department of Health & Welfare Sanitations, the Medical Welfare Corporation C.E.O., Wang, the head of public health insurance, Lee with their cases of infidelity coming out into the open, the government took a laissez-faire attitude to, wasn’t this due to the debauchery of morality of the persons in power too?  So, what’s the difference between Wang being noted as a “giant baby” and this?

Looking at the end of Wang’s marriage, from how he’d, disregarded his public status, to how the media had, exploited and consumed the stories, it all showed, that this, is due to a lacking in social responsibilities.  In the past three decades, Taiwan had, quickly changed, the values of old is no longer fitting to today, and, as we’d lost those old values, and still not yet found new ones to follow, all we have, are the, exaggerated, mottos, and all of these are what’s feeding to, the Leehom Wangs right now!

And so, this brings out the bigger problem, of how these role models of society, singers, performers, presidents of countries aren’t leading by better example, and so, naturally, everything become corrupt, from the top, down, and, because the very top is rotten, there’s no way of those at the bottom, to not be, rotten.

The Holes in the Security Nets of Society: the Case Had Been Discharged Many Times Before, and Passed the Psych Evaluations of the Professional Psychiatrists

How safe, are we, if the psych ward can’t, even, correctly identify the dangerous who might harm others, huh???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The social security nets is the vital policies of the president, Tsai, yet, there were the repeated cases of attacks on locals in Pingdong by someone with schizophrenia, the female super convenience store clerk had been severely wounded, and the president’s policies are questioned.  The head of the county, Pan stated, that this is a serious problem, a lesson learned, that he will, evaluate the laws more closely.  The psychiatrists suggested the families to get their loved ones into treatment, to not go soft of these individuals with these conditions.

Based off of understanding, Yang, the assailant from eleven years, had similar records, started in 2017, he was treated, and categorized as “difficult to cure”, every time he was admitted to the psych wards, he’d started crying that he wanted to be, released.  Pan said, Yang had been in and out of the hospitals multiple times, and had been evaluated closely each and every time, other than the related rules, all the assessment made for his discharge went through the professional evaluation of the psychiatrists.  But, the patient had injured others multiple times, Pan stressed that he’d already, requested that the hospital enforce a stricter rule of evaluation, and the man will be admitted to the psych ward as a long-term resident now.

The C.E.O. of the Pingdong Clinical Psychologist Association, Hu told, that the case has violent tendencies, always used threats of violence on others, that she’d advised to have him locked up long-term.  If the families wanted to take him home, then, they must learn how to interact with the case, to avoid violence, to change their ways of, interacting, relating to him from before.

a place like this then…photo from online

Hu said, that psychological disorders aren’t a “get-out-of-jail free card”, the penal code 19 states, that punishments shall be waived if the individual can’t tell the difference of right and wrong behaviors due to psychological disorders, or other mental conditions.  But, the third of penal code 19 also stated that “unfitting to be used if the act of harm was intentional, or the individual admitted to knowing what’s right and wrong!”, and, if treatments aren’t given, there will be, the criminal charges enforced.

Hu suggests that the family seek out help as early as they possibly can, a lot of the families, due to their lack of understanding of the psychological disorders, are afraid, with the communications with the trained professionals, they can accumulate the skills to caring for their loved ones, and can, more easily, avoid similar acts of violence from recurring.

and this is the modern-day “version” of the psych ward…

And so, this, is due to the lack of education, because the families aren’t trained like the professionals at the hospitals, they couldn’t offer the help that these mental patients needed to recover, and, if these mental patients aren’t getting the help they needed, then, some will become, violent, if they have the violent prior tendencies.  The system of evaluation is still, too loosened, too, lacking in this case.
