The Woman Kept Hostage for Sixteen Hours After the Breakup with the Boyfriend Demanding One Last Sexual Intercourse with Her Used Her Wits to Save Herself

One last FUCK, before we part, that, is how you all want it, isn’t it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The thirty-year-old man, Jeng, and his girlfriend are on the verge of breaking up, he was upset that all those years of love became wasted, he’d pulled his girlfriend into a motel on the sixth of this month, abused her, didn’t CARE that she was having her period, demanded her for “breakup sex”; the woman had the plans of escape, asked him to go out to buy her tampons, and as he was away, she’d, called the police, she was finally freed, after ten hours of being kidnapped by Jeng.  As Jeng was arrested, he’d denied the allegations, but the woman showed her injuries to the police, the district attorneys charged him with obstruction of sexual freedoms and other charges, asked the courts to have Jeng in custody, which the courts signed off on yesterday.

The police found, that Jeng had been dating his girlfriend for years, recently, they’d started fighting often, Jeng refused to break up; at eight in the morn on the sixth, Jeng drove to his girlfriend’s place and waited, wanted to get her to fall back in love with him.

As he saw her coming downstairs, readying to leave, and ignored him, he’d pulled her by force into his car, then, drove all the way, to a motel in Fengshan District.  The woman thought that Jeng only wanted to “confront” her about the breakup, and they’d, started talking, when Jeng lost it, and started physically smacking her down.

The woman was having her menstrual cycle on the day, Jeng still forced to have “breakup sex” with him, the woman worried that she may get beaten violently, and can only agree, she was raped twice; and afterwards, Jeng would NOT allow her to leave the room, restricted her, kept her hostage for ten hours on end.

The woman feared for her own life, not angered Jeng, waited until he’d let his guards down, claimed to him that she forgot to bring her tampons, asked him to get a pack for her at the super convenience shops, Jeng didn’t question her, and left, as he was gone, the woman immediately called for help from the motel staff, the police arrived, the woman called out for help; as soon as Jeng returned, he was arrested.

Jeng admitted to slapping his girlfriend across the face, but denied rape, claimed it was consensual, but the woman showed her injuries, and stressed that she was forced to have sex with him.

The district attorney’s didn’t believe Jeng’s words, charged him with obstruction of sexual freedom, obstruction of freedom, and other charges, and after the district attorneys questioned him, they’d asked the courts to have Jeng in custody, which the courts had signed off on.

And so, this, is right AFTER that law was signed into effect, of the preventing abuse from these horrid lovers, and, this still just showed, of how no matter what the laws stated, there will be those who knowingly breaks it, and it don’t matter how advanced this country believes it is on the matter of rights to protect woman, it’s still, lightyears behind.  These laws only works on paper, but not when it gets put to the test!

The Anti-Stalking Laws Will be Enforced Six Months from Now Tsai: a Lot of Women Live Under the Threats of Domestic Violence Regularly

Yeah, uh, guess how many MORE are gonna DIE, before the law’s been, set into motion again?  This should’ve been effective IMMEDIATELY, but, unfortunately, I do NOT control this shit, so…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The news of the legislator, Kao being physically abused by her boyfriend shocked the nation.  The president, Tsai yesterday, signed the “Stalking harassment prevention law”, and announced that the law will be fully enforced six months from now.  She said, with this newly written law, in the future, the police can intervene earlier, when the acts of illegally stalking someone, harassing someone occurred, to prevent the injuries or the deaths.

As Tsai signed, the head of legislature, Su, the head of internal affairs, Hsu, the recruit of the DDP, Ke, the legislators from the party, Kwan, Fan all were there at the press conference, to bear witness; as the president signed, she’d, handed the pen that she’d signed with to Hsu as a gift.

Tsai said, the stalking act is the vital step to prevent the violence against the genders, that in the evaluation of the entire global community, this made us ahead of the rest in gender equality, but now, there are still, a lot of women who are, faced with the violence, and the threats of domestic violence regularly.

Tsai told, that two days ago, was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the “Wan-Ru Peng incident”, back then, the female manager of the Women’s Department of the DDP, in order to get the women to be more involved with the “Quarter Act”, she’d gone to promote the cause in Kaohsiung and was murdered, and it’d called up the awareness of the public to pay more attention to women’s safety in society, and there were the laws that set up in relation to this matter, “but on this path, there are always, more to be done, I shall keep working hard, to make the country’s people live on with more ease.”

Hsu told, that he’d directed the Department of Police Affairs to speed up the police education training programs, and, are putting in more forces on the police units right now.

Wow, sounds o grand, doesn’t it?  But, it’s all just, boasting, I mean, who’s to say, that after this god damn law gets passed, that it would work, really, in preventing violence against women, and, note this, men can also be victims of abuse too, so, what about them???  Yeah, this is still, just, idealistic, but nowhere NEAR realistic, just like all of the proposed acts, the currently government has right now.

The Belief of the Elementary School Principal in Education, “Slow is Fast”

His beliefs about education: steady and slow, wins, that race!  A dedicated, educator, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The school principal of Jingwha Elementary, Tseng had been working for forty years to date in the realms of education, in the past, he’d pushed forth the teaching methods of the science subjects as closely related to life, as the 2019 education reforms were implemented, he’d hosted the seminars monthly, to help the instructors deal and cope with the changes in the new curricula, and given them advise on how to teach the classes, and, held firm to the beliefs of “in and out, living and learning”, to educate the students.  Tseng told, that this may be, ambiguous, but, the well-rounded beliefs of education leis that “simplicity will be everlasting, step by step, making the learning flow along more smoothly.”

Tseng told, that he’d been pushing forth the reforms of education of 2019, and now it’s finally, implemented, and the biggest differences of the former curricula and the current is in the “directions of the lessons”, for science, for instance, during the original lesson plans, the plants would be taken apart into parts for the students to learn about.

The Concepts of “Life in Life Out” in Teaching the Students

But the new curricula had the students to learn about the generalized concepts first, for the students to make observations about the plants, to get them to become curious, then to explain to them which part of the plants are which, the instructors’ roles in guiding the discoveries is vital, it’s closer to reality, instead of taking the plant apart, and learning the various parts of the plants from before.

“The concepts I want to train the students to learn is life in, life out”, Tseng said, that through caring about a certain thing, to discuss with the students on the processes, to hypothesize, to deduct, then to, discuss, to the final, end results, the conclusions, instead of ignoring the process, and getting, straight to the end, the answers.  And, after the discoveries, then, what’s learned in the classrooms can be more easily applied to every day life, the knowledge that the students can take, out of, the classroom setting.

Tseng who’d planned the science education curricula, and worked as the science club sponsoring instructor, with a rich experience in teaching the subject, even as he became the principal, he’d still set up the open lectures every school year, to teach the school children about science, and he’d hosted the education seminars to help the instructors find ideas to teaching, under the 2019 academic reforms.

Education Shouldn’t be Focused Solely on the End Result, and Ignoring the Processes of Learning

Tseng stated, that in the past, the students were passive, in absorbing everything the instructor fed to them, and now, the students are getting active, asking questions in the classroom settings, it would give the teacher more motivation to teach, but it’s also, a challenge, the students and teachers learning together, exchanging their thoughts, this, is the meaning of the new reforms of education.

Tseng smiled and told, that he has a belief about teaching, and running a school, which is, “simple is, longer lasting, slow and steady, wins the races.”, it sounds ambiguous, but the truth is, education shouldn’t be focused on the end results, and ignoring the processes in the middle, that it should be on the step-by-step discovery processes, after the concepts are learned, then, learning becomes, smoother flowing.

And so, this, is the school principal’s beliefs about education, and he’d, put his theories into, practice, in advocating the new education reforms, and, he’d made the lessons in science more applicable to the students’ every day life, which is, combining the theories with the application, which is what learning is, all about.

The Social Workers’ Understanding of Multiple Cultures is WAY More Important than Their Bilingual Abilities to Speak & Understand English

Written by a part-time social work associate professor, on how UNREALISTIC the policy of social workers being certified in the English language truly, is, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

On the trends of globalization, and internationalization trend, to up the competitive edge internationally, the government is reinforcing the means of dual-language education, and the testing department, in correspondence with the policies, is planning on setting up the requirements to have the English language standardize tests into the requirements, as this news came, the social work realm started ranting, everybody thought this was an unreasonable rule, that it’s, incomprehensible why the government was, mandating this.  In the realms of social worker, being culturally educated is way more important than being able to speak English fluently, the testing department shouldn’t set the standardized qualifying rules for social workers to be fluent in English, to pass the English standardized tests.

Taiwan is a multicultural community, with the foreign spouses closing in to 540,000 and those who speak Chinese close to 580,000, and this data still excludes all the foreign workers, along with the children from the foreign spouses, but, it’d been proven, that there were the problems of cross-generation upbringing, and the employment issues from the natives and the migrant families, and the rates of domestic violence, child welfare and protection are a slight bit higher in ratio too.  The population of women who are in the special conditions is higher than the other groups’, especially in recent years, the single parent families, and the cases of families on the lower end of the economic spectrum rising up fast; while the structures of social work had been providing the welfare programs to the general public, that instead, these help programs should be tailored to the varied needs of each individual and individual families specifically, and so, there’s, this necessity of the multicultural awareness and understanding.

Taiwan is now, impacted by the reduction of birthrate, the aging population, and in the implementing of the long-term care program, the trained professional social workers are, absolutely, necessary, and, yet, there’s, a very strict qualification for the certification of becoming a social worker, with the forty-five professional credits in the studies, more than four hundred hours of internship in the facilities.  And now, for the sake of “globalization” the government had added the English language qualifications exams, ignoring the local voices, can it, really, resolve the issues, it’s, quite, doubtful.

The social problems that the social workers come face to face with, in order to understand the issues with each and every case, the primary way is to get to know the values, the life experiences of the cases who are soliciting the assistance, the cultural backgrounds of the various individuals, then, they are able to, provide, the best needed, assistance to them, and so, getting these social workers trained on the multiple cultural awareness is what’s most important in the now.  Adding in the English language qualification exams, this will only drive the test takers to the cram schools, and, even if the test takers pass the exams, will they be helpful enough to the cases?  I truly suggest, that instead, “adding the language courses for the natives and the newly migrants”, to enforce the communication means of the social workers with their cases, to bring the language to everyday living, to pull the social workers closer to the cases they’re assigned to, that, is what’s, more, practical.

is way more important than…

And this still just showed, how UNREALISTIC the policies those lawmakers came up with, that are being signed into legislation are, unrealistic, and they’re making the social worker majors, to add on, another fifty, sixty, even seventy more hours of English courses so they can pass their English certification exams, and the writer is absolutely RIGHT, on the fact, that the government should SLASH this rule of English language evaluations, and maybe, focus on the languages of the foreign care workers, the migrant workers’ home language, that way, these social workers will be able to help assist these cases even better!

The Parents & the School Instructors Not on the Same Page on Using the Surveys to Stop Bullying

How do you think conducting a SURVEY can end bullying in school, huh???  I…dunno!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education amended the wording of the Anti-Bullying Laws in July for the schools from “student to student” to “Principal, teachers and students to students”, and mandated the schools needed to conduct surveys regularly for the students.  The Head of Department of Education held a press conference on the matter, stated that the definition of bullying isn’t clear cut enough, the students may misinterpret discipline into bullying, and the schools get turned into the prison system, and the teachers are, teaching within the jail cells of wording correctly.  But the parent groups believed, that the law will help improve the situation of the victims’ fearing to speak out, that it can, help prevent bullying in school.

The department pointed out, this legislation will mandate that all middle schools, fifth, sixth grade classes in the elementary do a survey of life on campus every April of each year, and follow up on the cases to give the needed counseling measures.  And the related statistics will be sent to the managing units of education and the Department of Education to review over.

Half of the survey is on the bullying of students by peers, and the other half is on the teachers bullying the students.  The questions included, “the teacher had told other students to pick on me”  “The teacher had taken a mean tone with me, or the teachers mocked me”, “I was publicly humiliated by the instructor in front of everyone”.  And all of these questions are quite vague, it’d affected the ruling of the teachers in the classrooms, and it can, make the instructors live in fear.

The C.E.O. of the Parenting League, Peng advocated this amendment, she’d stated, that there’s an unequal distribution of power between the students and teachers, the questionnaire can be used as a voice for the students, as the children come face to face with trouble, we can, offer our help to them immediately.  And even if the students are exaggerating in their claims, the teams of investigators can differentiate between discipline and bullying, to not hurt the instructors’ right to work.  She’d also suggested to the Department of Education to set up the rules, to file the questionnaires into the computer, and using the data on a grander scale, to prevent bullying in school.

And so, you can see, how this can be, problematic, right?  I mean, these are teenagers, and you know these teens have the tendencies to take everything too serious, like how they would interpret things too personally, even IF it wasn’t directed against them as people, and so, under this system, I imagine, that a TON of teachers would get called into the Department of Education, for reviews of their teaching qualifications, and yet, this, is what the government is currently doing, because they want these children to have a voice, to have more right, to decide how they’re being taught.  They believe this is a step toward democracy, but it’s actually N-O-T!  The teachers’ jobs are hard enough, and now, they risk getting reviewed by the board of whatever, for getting LOUD when the classroom get too loud, uh, yeah, this is when democracy turned into, demoCRAZY!!!

“You Can’t Learn How to be a Police Officer in the Classrooms”

After the theories, you also, need the applications, the HANDS-on experiences, to have the full training!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The police academy focuses the trainings on safety and enforcing the laws, and yet, the officers getting killed on duty are still, very frequent, a lot of the officers believed, that police officers work in a high pressure background, that “Doing things by the book” couldn’t subdue the suspects, or meet the demands of their quotas; there’s a huge gap between reality and what the trainings taught them in the classrooms.

Last August, the officer from Hsinbei City, Shue chased after a suspicious motorist out on his scooter, and rammed into the suspect, and died on the job.  This April, the police in Yunlin rode out on a patrol car to chase down the suspects who have drug priors, they impacted, and four officers were, injured.

In recent years, there’s the calls for NOT getting into car chases by the police, to tail behind the suspects at a safe distance, to call for backup, and a lot of the entry level officers laughed at these rules for being “from the ivory towers”, and suspected that the superiors demanded the outcomes of drug busts, the weapon busts, and if they don’t stop all the suspects how will they make the quotas.

But, being overt in pursuing the suspects can cause the officers to lose their lives, even injuring bystanders.  In March, the Taoyuan Police stopped a drunk driver, and the driver rammed the car toward the police, the police fired five shots to stop him, and accidentally, killed a female passenger on the backseat.

The senior officers told, that the police work is highly dangerous, the environment can change in a split second, and all the experienced officers all struggled between considerations of how much forces to use, let alone those who are just fresh out of the police academies; street smarts is what they’d rely on in working on the police forces, not the book smarts, it takes more than passing the exams to become a police officer.

In recent years, there had been many cases of police and civilian confrontations, and the deaths are still rising, the police department is now, paying more attention to the safety of the officers on duty, the suspects, the cases, other than adding the softer communication methods course in the academy, they’d also set up ten interactive shooting ranges with the virtual reality scenarios, the officers or the students will choose which to use in the numerous situations, the pepper sprays, the stick, or the guns.

Currently, the courses also required the trainees to rehearse the pulling the cars over for checks, to break up a gathering crowd, traffic accidents, and other more practical situations, so during school, these police trainees would have a sense of how to enforce the laws more safely.

And so, due to the influx of deaths during the job, the police forces here are, rethinking the measures of training, and helping to instill in the officers, that safety should come first, the pursuits of suspects comes second.

A Product of His Enviornmental Interactions

He was, a product of his environmental interactions, there’s NO denying that!  Being a product of his environmental interactions, he’d worked hard, to get along with, to adapt, to everything that’s happening around him, because that, is how he would survive.

A product of his environmental interactions, he’d fallen victim, and, once that had happened, he found himself, STUCK, and, NO matter how hard he’d tussled and rustled, he just, couldn’t, get back out again.  A product of his environmental interactions, during the last parts of his life, he’d come to understand, that if one is to ge4t along well with the world, then, one must make oneself malleable, so one can deal with the changes around oneself…

A product of his environmental interactions, he’d become, and, he’d fallen, to that mindset, and, NO matter how hard he’d tried, he just, couldn’t get out, he’s now, STUCK, for good!

A product of his environmental interactions, there’s no way, for him, to rid himself off that, because NO matter where he goes, he is right there, the consequences of his life, will always, be right there, behind him, ready to, catch him, RIGHT in the A-C-T………

Helpless, a “Learned” Response

Getting RE-active here!!!

Helplessness became a learned “response”, because, in your earlier days, (and yes, this still dates WAY back into your own childhood years!!!), those two PRIMARY attachment figures FAILED miserably at what they’re supposed to do, for whatever reasons there may have been, how the HELL should I know???

So, you’d learned, to feel helpless, and, this “shadow” from your earliest interactions with the world (and, there are still just THOSE two “characters” in a child’s world, remember???), will tag along behind you, even AS you’d become an “adult”, and, you’re MORE than likely, to seek out whatever it is that you’d lacked, whether it was love, being cared for, etc., etc., etc., in people you come across.

Helpless, a “learned” response, once you’d learned to be helpless, you will NEVER, ever, EVER be able to, help yourselves, solve YOUR own issues, problems, or WHATEVER, because you’d gotten used to, having someone, to come to your rescues, and, you’re totally, SCREWED!!!

Helplessness, a “learned” response, and, once it’s been learned, it simply, can’t BE unlearned, just like Little Albert, do you think he’d EVER gotten OVER that FEAR that those god DAMN unethical scientist had, conditioned him to fear?  Heck no, he probably carried that fear of RATS that he could NO longer recall where he’d picked THAT up from, all the way, into his adulthood years.

Helplessness, a “learned” response, just like how EASY it would be, to condition (as in operant/classical/aversive???) someone, to RE-act to something, OR someone a certain way, and, once that condition is SET, it would be, NEXT to impossible, to make the response EXTINCT!

Attributions to His Loneliness

Welcome, to, another “application” of an already-written down theory!!!

Part I…the Internals…

In this view, that attributions to his loneliness is made, to not the external environments, not the interactions he’d shared, or lack thereof, with the world, and, in this view, the man (person???) is more than likely, to ponder on, how s/he could get her/himself, involved with the world all around, like getting more involved with the world, showing cares and concerns to the people that s/he comes across, thus, solving the ISSUES that are contributing factors that’s made her/him feel so lonely, and, in this way, the man (human) IS the one in control, of getting RID of her/his own feelings of loneliness.

Part II…the Externals…

In this case, the man (still talkin’ ‘bout HUMAN here, hello, hello, hello???) IS blaming his loneliness on how hey, nobody wants to play with me, like in the kindergarten day, and focusing solely on how others may have done her/him wrong, which takes away from the person’s ability to INTROSPECT, meaning that if this process continues, meaning that NO one set this man/woman STRAIGHT, then, s/he will go on, into her/his adulthood years, continue to, blame other people for her/his own problems, and this translates into the workforce as, oh, I got passed over for that promotion, NOT because I don’t got the skills for it, but because someone ELSE in the office IS a kiss-ass, and s/he knows just H-O-W to SUCK up to the manager, that, is why s/he got the promotion, instead of me…

And, in the case of loneliness, the person would blame her/his own loneliness on how someone refuse to befriend with her/him, how they’re all teamed together, and working on a conspiracy, to pull me down, and, before you know it, this person would become paranoid, which would lead to, maladaptations of one’s realities, or, the person can become so withdrawn that s/he simply, cut OFF all contact with the outside world, and start living in her/his own ivory towers, and keeps but, minimal contact with the world, like ordering in delivery, and handing the cash for the food to the delivery boy, and, beyond that, s/he is completely, SEVERED, from the rest of the world, and, this would be bad because???  Oh yeah, we are social animals, hello, hello, hello???  And, being social animals, we’re naturally, drawn toward connections with one another, meaning that without the connections to those around us, how the HELL can we become properly socialized???

So, who, are you going to blame, for feelings of loneliness now?  I don’t blame anyone, for my loneliness, in fact, I still much rather have that CUP (try the ENTIRE carton’s WORTH!!!) of SOLITUDE, all to myself, all in my lonesome, with nobody, but me, myself, and I, as MY best company, and, the “four” of “us”?  We’re still getting along, quite well with one another, and, feel free, to see this as my Multiple Personality Disorder (uh, yeah right!!!) “acting up” if you want to, but hey, I’m still highly aware, of myself, and I know DAMN well, that ALL of my “characters” are developed as a WAY I learned, to COPE with things, growing up, and, there’s still NOTHING wrong with me, not right now, ‘cuz I’d FIXED everything here!
