The Mixture Drugs Rose Up to Second as More & More Students Get Addicted

The new “breeds” of drugs, even more addictive!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Zhongzhen University hosted its Prevention of Adolescent Drug Abuse seminar yesterday, the district attorney from Kaohsiung D.A.’s Office, Gu pointed out, that the mix-type of drugs in the coffee pouches was ranked third on the student addictions in 2017, two years ago and last, these rose up to second, right after ketamine, strongly recommended the schools and the police start collaborating together, to rid the drugs off of the campuses.

Gu stated, that the police confiscated over 100,000 drug coffee pouches, the highest since 2012, and that there were the level three, level four new age drugs mixed into the mixtures, based off of the estimates of the coroners’ office, there was a hike in drug-related deaths last year during fourth quarter, as many as forty-two cases, and in just first quarter this year, there’d been forty-two cases, and the number grew to fifty-six by second quarter, and in just July and August, there were, twenty-eight cases.

She’d pointed out, that the drug drip-coffee packs often had the second level controlled substances PMMA, third level controlled substances mephedrone, Erimin, taking one pack doesn’t do a thing, but if the user took multiple packs, and combined with ketamine, the users are more than likely to overdose and die, from January of last to September of this year, there are already 120 who’d died of overdose, of them, sixty-three were from twenty to twenty-nine years of age.

She said, that the age group of using level three to four controlled substances are mostly those between eighteen and twenty-four, thirty-five percent; and, there’s, a lowered age of first-time users, there were 1,878 persons who’d started abusing the drugs for the first time in the ages between eighteen and twenty-four.

Because the schools feared being labeled, it’s hard to crack down on the drugs infiltrating the campuses, Gu suggested, that the school should file the reports with the school safety committee, then, the committee then send the reports anonymously to the police departments locally.

And so, because you don’t want the reputations of your schools ruined, you are more than likely to under report the citing, and this is not good, because if you don’t report the right numbers, the numbers are just going to, increase by the day, because the law enforcement agencies can’t step in on time!

No Worries

Can’t set our minds at ease, no matter what, because we cared too much about each other!  Translated…

My son has, absolutely NO faith, that his scatterbrained mother can take care of his young by herself, and I can’t feel secure, that he’s riding out late at night, making the deliveries, it’s, a looped around cycle of worrying, between parents and children.

The sudden onset of the outbreak of MERS-CoV, it’d, impacted the industries across the world, being on the front lines in the tourism industries, you can’t imagine it.  And, even though, we’re, going into, the post-outbreak times, the tourist industries tried to make it, by, proposing the trips within the country, but my daughter-in-law is responsible for the tour groups abroad, and, it’s going to take a while, until that start back up again.  In this very hard time, those who worked in her office took the pay cuts, some got laid off, everybody was on high alert, some quickly, transferred to alternative industries of work, to take the baseline minimum monthly wages to make ends meet.  And at this time, my young granddaughter came, and, other than the basic living needs, there’s, this extra expense, and so, my son had to, start making the deliveries after his regular work hours.

Canceling the nannies, and I’d become, the temp nanny, and I, naturally, supported my son’s methods of saving the money.  Actually, I’d, longed to have a grandchild a very long time, and, as I was gloating on it, my son handed me the Holy Bible of childcare that the nurses made from the hospital for the new parents, reiterated, “When you make the milk, first the water in the bottle, then the formula, make sure that the formula is melted completely, to the left and right, don’t shake the bottle up and down then, place it under the sink to get it cooled off, it can’t be too hot.” “Pour the unfinished amount out, don’t save it for the next feeding time.”  “Now the diapers have the signals of if it’s wet, when the signal turned from yellow to blue, time to change.” “Newborns shouldn’t sleep on their tummy, it would cause sudden infant death.”  “oh, and don’t feed her any water!”

I nodded, like a good student, listening to the words of the school teacher, thought: this first-time grandma, is an excellent master back when, it’s just, I hadn’t, be in the realms a long time, I’d just, lost, all of my childrearing methods.

And, even though he’s away at work, he was, ill at ease, my LINE kept ringing nonstop.  “Mom, nothing’s going on, I just want to check in.”  “Did you put her down to a nap yet?”  “She cries a lot these few days, can you manage it?”, and, to stop him from flash-messaging, I’d sent him the photos of my young granddaughter, even though it was over forty years since I took care of a baby, but I still got it, I can, so totally, handle, a baby.

And, I’d, finally set my son’s mind to ease, but he’d, gotten me worried, I’d told him as he was getting out, “If you bump into a gambler, a drunk, or a drug dealer, if something feels like it’s, going south, RUN like the wind!” my son laughed at me, “it don’t matter who’s calling the deliveries, so long as they pay up.”  He’d not come home late in the night, and I’d not dared, sat in the living room and wait up, and, as I heard the key turn the lock outside, my unsettled heart calmed, and suddenly, by the following second, I was, able to, drift off into dreams.

Recalling how forty years back, I’d worked night and day, to help pay up the debts accumulated by my in-law’s family, my son were given to my ill mother-in-law and my chain-smoking father-in-law, I’d often snuck back home during work, to check out my eldest with two snots rolling down from his nostrils, getting held too tight, by my mother-in-law, whose bones had been malformed from arthritis; and my youngest son was often burned by accident by my father-in-law who had a cigarette in his mouth, dozed off to sleep, and yet, as I saw how sorry my in-laws looked, I couldn’t blame them.  And, no matter how awful, how insecure I’d felt, I still needed to believe, that these grandparents who may not be able to handle them, have the best intentions in mind, and will do their best, to care for my young sons.

Let go.  Set your heart at ease.  I’d, warned myself: the outbreaks shall pass soon, and everything will become normal, I just need to take care of my granddaughter well, so my son won’t have any worries, working, we both, need to, have that ease of mind here.

And so, this showed, just how, intertwined the parents and children are, from before, you worried about your own young, and now, he worries about his own young, and you too, and this, is just how parents and children are, we all worry too much!

Until the Darkness Swallowed Us, Whole…

Until the darkness swallowed us, whole, we will, NEVER be aware enough of what the darkness entailed, and, by the time the darkness takes us over, it’d be, too late!  Until the darkness swallowed us, whole, until we have, NO more light, we won’t, know just, how precious, light really is, as we’d, taken it, for granted, all this time…

Until the darkness swallowed us, whole, but, that would be, too late then, we would’ve, sunk, too deep, into, that darkened, abyss, to even, get our selves, back out to the surfaces again.  Until the darkness swallowed us, whole, it’s always, until the darkness swallowed us is, took that light away, would we, finally realized, just, how precious, light is, in our lives, but by then, we have, NO way of, getting it back.

Until the darkness swallowed us, whole, until, we lived in the darkness, for a long, long, long, long time, we won’t, realize, just how important, that light we’d, once had was, and then, we can’t, EVER, get it back, it’s, already lost…

They don’t call it HINDSIGHT for nothing you know???

The Courage that Stemmed from Ignorance, is Usually, the Most Dangerous Kind of Courage There is

This country is merely, a PAWN, something that can get TOSSED out, after use, and the president still doesn’t see it?!  Wow, is the government stupid, or is it, PLAIN, STUPID???  Commentaries from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Would the two sides of the coasts go into war?  This is the million dollar question.  But, the Taiwan Strait because of the issue of Taiwanese independence, sparked that tug-of-war between China and the U.S., the tension surely is, there.

Can Taiwan win in a war with Communist China?  This is a giveaway, only IDIOTS and MORONS will try to fool themselves.  So, the most important question now is, if the war happens between the two sides, would Japan and America be on Taiwan’s side?

Before we can answer this, let us see two of the important international headlines.

One, America had decided to retract the army from Syria, left the Kurds who are on the rebellious side on their own suddenly.  The Turkish started the grand scales of air raids and land attacks recently, and in just a few days, causing the Kurds huge damages.  There are the historical proofs of how U.S. had, betrayed its allies, from Vietnam, Iran, Iraq, to Afghanistan, the end of sucking up to U.S., we all get betrayed by the U.S., and people are suffering for it.

Secondly, Japanese had publicly stated its relations with China bluntly.  From before, due to the pressures from Trump, Japan had used a tougher stance in dealing with China, but because of the conflicts between Korea, it had to, switch sides, and upped the business, the international relations with China.  For this, the Japanese PM, Abe, canceled his trip to the shrines.

and this, is how Trump does it! And no, I still did NOT sketch this, I don’t do ART, remember??? Found online

And so, for any one with a smallest working brain, the international affairs of Japan and U.S., are based off of egoism, all they cared about, are the benefits to their own countries.  If we take from history, we can be certain of two things.  First, the U.S. and Japan are the most realistic of all countries, they will only use you, never really offer you the help that you need.  Secondly, on any matters of international relations, the fists speak the LOUDEST, so, there’s, no need, to hypnotize ourselves, or get into that delusional state of mind.

Trump for the sake of the election, took a strong “Anti-China” standpoint, and his purpose is merely to, spark up the populism of white supremacy, hoping, that as the outbreaks spread, he is somehow, able to, stay in office for another term as the president.

And this was quite similar to the stance that the president of Taiwan is taking too, but the biggest difference being, although Trump is a brute psycho, but he’s no brainless fool.  And, the president of Taiwan, seemed to have calculated everything out, she is in fact, a spoiled, ignorant, opportunist.

The biggest blindspot in all of this is how the president is sucking up to the U.S. and Japan hard, and she’d hated China to the point of totally ignoring it.  In the end, without a doubt, Taiwan will totally get screwed, sold by the U.S. and Japan, putting all of its, over 23 million people at risk.

So, if China and Taiwan go to war with each other, would the U.S. and the Japan help us?  Totally NOT for Japan, it only wanted to save itself, so, there’s no need to hope.  As for the U.S., it’d only wanted to be the one benefitting, so Taiwan can DIE in the battle fields, to pave the way for Trump’s reelection, so of course, no armies will be sent to help us.  Are you stupid enough to believe, that those, supremacist American soldiers would give their lives for Taiwan, so far away from the U.S.?

If Trump gets reelected, the businesses would be the first priorities, he will surely, resume the business negotiations with China.  If Trump doesn’t get reelected, then China and U.S. will still remain on amicable terms, to go ahead with the peaceful negotiations in business.  And NO matter what, the U.S. will never fight for Taiwan.

And those firm supporters of President Tsai, do they have a sense of cost-benefit analyses skills?  Or, are they simply, too naïve, believing, that with the blind courage, the thought, that they can, keep Taiwan, safe?

And so, Taiwan was, merely, a PAWN in this game of the world, everybody’s using us as a chip with China, and, Trump seemed to be on Taiwan’s side, but he only CARED for himself, while Japan, well, Japanese are natural born selfish, as the writer had, noted, and so, if the two sides of the straits go to war, we’re, totally, SCREWED, and yet, the currently president still blinds herself to the fact, are you, @#$%ING kidding me here???

Finding Joys in Helping Others in Need

Helping someone in need!  Translated…

Early in the morn, I’d rushed off with my daughter to work, as we alighted the buss, we saw a bunch of ladies, looking over an elderly man, the elderly man’s socks were, soaked in blood, and, the tissue that covered the wound in the tibia, seemed to continue to bleed.

Thankfully, two more stations more, there’s the VMH in Shihpai, as he got off the bus, I saw him, sat waiting with hardship at the bus stop, the blood still, flowed out, he seemed to be calling someone for assistance; and I’d not cared that it was time for me to get to work then, I’d, gone up to him, told him I worked in the hospital, and had him call his families to meet him in the E.R., while I’d gone to the hospital, to get a wheelchair to get him in.  Then came, the running fast, pushing the wheelchair in supersonic speed, to the E.R., to when his loved one rushed in, the man was taken into the surgical ward to get sutured up, and that was when that huge rock finally got dropped inside my heart.  Later, I’d learned from his family, that the elder had cancer, and he was on anticoagulants regularly, had his hospitalization been delayed, the results would be, dire.

I’d recalled how as I rushed the elderly man into the E.R., he kept telling me thank you, said that he’d met someone amazing who’d, helped him out.  I’d told him, he was my parents’ age, that if something like this were to happen to them, I’d wanted someone to lend them a helping hand too, and, this hour-long interlude, although it was, thrilling, but, in the end, it all, ended, well, other than knowing the meaning of helping other is bliss, I’m, also proud for being, that tiny screw inside that giant white tower!

And so, because your empathy kicked in, seeing the elderly man injured because you’d wanted someone to help your own elderly parents, and because it’s in your line of work, to offer assistance to people, being a medical care worker, and you’d, ended up, helping this elderly man get to the hospital on time, and saved his life.

The Ambassador of Peace on LINE

Trying to keep the peace, when members in your group are at each other’s throats, when they get on each other’s nerves, what can you do?  Try to mediate, in a round-and-about sort of a way, so you don’t end up, as the common enemies, but it’s, not that easy!  Translated…

My daughter-in-law one day, chimed excitedly, to the Family LINE group, how there’s, a night market close to her home, and the photo she’d sent to the group was a street, lit up with the lights during the nights, with a world of fried food stands, the arcades, I’d immediately replied back, “be careful as you don’t know the quality of oils the owners used to fry the foods, and the kids shouldn’t be allowed to play those arcades, as they may be easily addicted to these games…………”

As soon as I’d typed all of that, my daughter who’s away on another continent immediately added on, “it’s fine that you go and take that stroll every now and then.”  I was shocked, I’d, immediately recycled my message back.  Thinking about this calmly, if someone rained on my parade, it naturally would, make me feel, awful, and it wouldn’t matter if the words that someone was saying to me was right!  I’d, contemplated, and felt grateful for my daughter’s round-and-about-way of reminding me, so I slammed on the brakes before damages are done.

My friend was once the head of a certain club, he’d shared things on LINE quite a lot.  He’d told, that often, as a subject of discussion was opened for debate, some of the group had started, firing those cannons, some, quite stubborn, to one’s own beliefs, some swayed with how the winds were blowing, some agreed to others’ words, and the words were sharpened, ready for war.  The most often was the fight for the parties in the politics, some debated on the policies, some toward the incumbents, and, it’d, made it difficult, for my friend, who wanted to try and mediate between those who are then, engaged, and, he’d, spoken of his “New Year’s Resolution” aloud via LINE.

He’d said, “from here on out, no talks of politics, no personal attacks.  When we have a difference of opinions, DO delete those emotional words, to keep the conversation flowing smoothly, rationally”, and, for the six months that followed, there’s, more harmony within the group of LINE.

With the inventions of the high-tech gadgets, it’d, made people leap into an alternative world, the parents are, disregarding the needs of their children more now, and the problems between the couples, the parents and children, worsened, as our heads, lowered to our high-tech gadgets these days.

But, think on it, it’s not the gadgets that are awful, it’s the mindsets of the users, and the timing.  If one can use the gadgets, and not let these high-tech devices control us, then, we won’t become, slaves.  Like how those who’d retired who don’t live with their children, sliding on their tablets or cell phones, sending the messages, their emotions found a viable outlet, and they’re, able to get some news and new information from everywhere around.  Sometimes, they’re even, having a webcam conference with the children and grandchildren who don’t live close by, the comfort from interaction with one’s own loved ones, although they’re, separated physically, but they’d become, more than, connected psychologically.  To the point when there’s an emergency, the high-tech devices are, very good for sounding off the alarms.

My friend’s older sister-in-law didn’t get along with her parents, although one live up north, the other, south, they’d still gotten on each other’s bad side over miniscule matters, and, as the two sides were getting heated on the group on LINE, she’d, privately texted her youngest nephew, told him to commend his mother on her cooing, how he’s, looked after so well, so the grandparents who lived faraway, in the southern parts of the island know, that they have a good daughter-in-law.  And, other than posting the messages on how to live well, my friend told her older sister-in-law that her parents had, commended her in their circles of friends, how they’re, so proud of her.  And naturally, the problems between this mother and daughter-in-law pair, slowly, resolved on their own.

Working hard, being the middleman of peace, at first, you may feel, tried, because you couldn’t make the results of the changes you want to see happen faster, but, after awhile, the results will, show.  The communications apps are of various sorts and kinds, with the members numerous, and, it certainly isn’t by chance, that we’d, found each other, in the vastness of the ocean-full of people.  If you can cherish this affinity, and, work hard, as a connector in every group you’re involved in, keeping the peace, for everybody’s sake, as you turn on the apps, it can only bring you joys in the days.

This is on, being, THE middleman, and, this woman has some valid points, but, I don’t, necessarily agree with her on everything.  I mean, it’s important, that you want to keep the peaceful flow of conversations on your LINE accounts, sure, but sometimes, you just, can’t ignore how someone’s words made you flare up, and, if you don’t find a valid way to get the angers you feel out, then, it will surely, damage you, and not just your relationship with that other person.  And yeah, a middleman who will help, diffuse this, lit up bomb, may be necessary in these cases, but not always.

Selling the Raw Ingredients Used to Make MDMA, the Man Was Found, “Not Guilty”

Yeah, uh, how the #$%^ is this not guilty?  Oh yeah, because unless all the substances are, mixed together in a chemical lab, it wouldn’t, considered, harmful, or addictive, is that it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Su bought the chemicals GHB, extracted the GBL (gamma-Butyrolactone) from it, mixed it with water, and sold the bottles, was charged with distributing illegal substances; the judge believed, that even though, the butyrolactone is used to make a level two controlled substance, but it’s not listed as a controlled substance, that it can’t prove, that Su was guilty of selling and distributing drugs.  In the verdict, it’d stated that the gamma-Butyrolactone wasn’t listed as a controlled substance, that the citizens can easily get their hands on, hoped that the FDA can place a restriction on the substance.

Last year on March 5th, Su used the communication app claimed that he had some substances for sale, the police acted as buyers, and used $1,800N.T. to order three bottles, and as they went to get the substance, Su was busted and arrested, and as the liquid was tested, it was confirmed that it had the substance, GHB in it, the D.A. charged Su on attempts to deal a level two substance.

Su denied having trafficked, claimed that he’d used a total of $3,000N.T. to buy two 500mL bottles of GBL, then split the volume up, and sold off the bottles to help get the party going; the defense attorney stated that the “liquid” confiscated by the police only had trace amounts of GHB, that GHB is highly unstable, and can change with the temperature, as well as the acidity, that there’s no proof that Su was selling the bottles with the GHB in it, and that Su did not intentionally sell the controlled substance either.

The Taoyuan District Court discovered, that the liquid that Su was selling had less than one-percent of GHB in it, and, although the courts didn’t believe that Su stated he wasn’t selling drugs, but based off of the data, the literature of the investigative bureau, the GBL soaked in liquid, will become GHB, with the changes in the acidity or basic level of the solution it was in, Su claimed he’d bought the solute on February first of last year, was arrested on March 5th, and the reports of the ingredients of the liquid he’d sold came out on March 23rd, there was the uncertainty of how GBL was turned into GHB due to environmental factors, that it was difficult, to confirm that the liquid Su was selling had GHB or not, he was released, on a not-guilty verdict.

This loser got off on a technicality, because this chemical is quite unstable, and can change with the varied temperature, that’s why the courts couldn’t confirm that he’d sold the raw ingredients to make the illegal substance for sell or not.  And this can be, a really BAD precedence, because now, every one who’d tried to sell off this particular drug can use the excuse that set this person free from here on out!

Sold One Gram of Heroin, Sentenced to Fifteen-and-a-Half Years

A CRACKDOWN on drugs, the government is now, punishing the dealers, the users, more severely, than E-V-E-R before!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Hsu bought heroin from a man nicknamed, “Health Man” last year, then, he’d used the cost of $3,000N.T. per gram and sold it to another man, Huang, Huang thought that the heroin wasn’t high in quality, demanded a refund, Hsu offered him the brand new drugs, and the police was able to catch him, he’d denied having sold drugs, claimed that he and Huang had rounded up their money and bought from a man, “Health Man”, the judge didn’t believe him, sentenced him to fifteen years six months, and took the illegally gained money of $3,000N.T.s.  This can still be appealed.

The verdict stated, the Hsu (age 52) received Huang’s call last year, wanted to buy the A class drug, heroin, Hus first contacted the man nicknamed Ken, to get the deals going, last year at noon on June 15th, he’d taken the $3,000N.T. from Huang, and rode in Huang’s car to the east side of Taichung to meet up with “Ken”.

The two, upon arriving, Hsu went alone upstairs to meet “Ken”, bought a bag of heroin, then, took Huang’s car back to his rental stay on the west side of Taichung, he’d entered alone into his own residence, split up the heroin he bought into two separate bags, handed one bag to Huang.

And so, this, is the government’s, CRACKING down on the drug deals, and, hopefully, this will, deter all the dealers, from selling, because if the rest of the drug-dealing community saw how sever this man’s sentence for dealing just ONE gram of heroin is, maybe, it’s enough, to STOP them from selling too, hopefully.

The Follow-Up to the “Troublemaker Pair”, the Visually Impaired School Teacher & His Guide Dog Finally Found Their Residence

The needs of this man that was, seen, by the community, because his story was told!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A lot of the realtors, along with the property owners heard that the renter has a dog, they’d, immediately stated how there wouldn’t be pets allowed, and no matter how hard the renters tried to explain, “they’re NOT pets!” that “the guide dogs are the eyes of the visually impaired!”, the owners of the properties replied back coldly, “it’s a dog, just the same!”

Lu’s mother, Tsai issued a happy notice, “Guan-Ling and his guide dog found a rental stay!”, it was a mansion, located in a quiet alley, Guan-Ling lives on the first floor, and it’s, only a ten-minute walk from the Fuke Middle School where Lu was hired to work.  The landlady was originally, a bit, timid over the guide dog and the visually impaired man, Tsai asked the woman to log onto her son’s FB page, plus the volunteer group of the middle school also shared the news reports from the papers, and the landlady decided, to allow Lu to rent, and said, that her daughter attends the middle school where he’ll work at too, that if needed, she can take him to get familiarized with the environment a bit.

視障者呂冠霖與導盲犬YUMA。 記者徐如宜/攝影the man and his guide dog, happy over finding a stay…photo from UDN.com

Lu was grateful for everybody’s help, this love and care and concern, him and his family shall, NEVER, forget.  By mid-August, he and his guide dog, Yuma will be, moving into a brand new environment, he hoped, to use his expertise in counseling, to help more students, to grow with them.

And so, this, is why it’s, important, for these sorts of stories to get written out, because if these things stayed buried, nobody knows that there’s a need, and as this story came out, people from all around tried to help, and, surely, this man’s needs were, noted, and, he’d found, a place to live in, with his guide dog.

He Got into a Car Wreck, Went Home, Downed a Bottle of Rice Wine…the Charges of Drunk-Driving, Dropped

Because he downed that bottle after he got into a crash, to calm down his own nerves???  Got off, on a technicality here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Two years ago, the man, Liu had a fender-bender with a sedan, he’d, walked back to his residence close to where the accident occurred, downed a bottle of rice wine to calm his own nerves, and the D.A. and the police believed he was trying to, mess up his own sobriety test, charged him on drunk-driving still; the first trial found, that Liu had, arrived home after he got into a fender-bender and downed a bottle of 600mL rice wine, there’s no way of confirming that he was already drunk before the accident had occurred, found him not-guilty; the D.A. appealed, the Kaohsiung High Courts maintained the not-guilty verdict, case closed.

The district attorney filed for an appeal, calculated on how if Liu had three cigarettes and drunk, subtracting the time he took to smoke, there were only four minutes that he had to spare, to down that six hundred milliliter worth of rice wine, it was, hard to imagine that he was able to, the Collectivist Courts found during the second trial, that calculating the time like so wouldn’t be precise enough, and it’d lacked the scientific basis of binge drinking’s effect on impairment, that it couldn’t prove that Liu was drunk before he got into the car wreck, tossed back the district attorney’s appeals.

And yeah, so this LOSER still, got away, on a technicality, and, maybe, he drank the bottle, to smooth his own nerves for hitting the car, who knows, or maybe, he’d, knowingly drunk that bottle, because he knew, that it helped him get off on a conviction of drunk-driving, either way, this, IS a H-O-L-E in the justice system here!
