Have you ever ran into apps that auto renew your subscription without asking? 

Recently, a netizen shared his similar experience after he noticed he was charged with several kinds of auto renewal payments when he was checking bills. Some apps use “no entry fee to become a member”, “7 days membership for 1 penny” and other similar tactics to attract clients to register as a member but make it difficult for the consumers to cancel their memberships.

Some consumers were simply thinking it was a monthly membership to watch a TV show or a movie. They never thought they were becoming long term members. Auto renewal 3 days before expiration is against consumers’ free wills and shortens their choice cycle.

 

These auto renewals has been canceled!

1.Cancel unauthorized auto renewals. Give the right back to the consumers to decide if they want to renew.

2.Text or send popup messages to inform the consumers 3-5 days in advance before auto renewal.

3.Stop using advertisements like “free of commercials after becoming a member”.

China’s first clinic for transgender kids opened in Shanghai recently, to the applause — and slight confusion — of the country’s LGBTQ activists.

 

The Global Times, a state-backed media outlet, wrote about the clinic, noting that China’s transgender youth are at higher risk for depression and anxiety relative to the broad population. (That’s true everywhere.) Based at the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University, the clinic plans to bring together specialists in psychologists, endocrinologists, geneticists and others to “serve as a bridge between transgender children, parents, doctors and the various circles of society,” according to the story.

 

It’s not clear why the clinic opened now, nor why it’s getting positive coverage by official media at a time when the Communist Party has been cracking down on LGBTQ activists and emphasizing more traditional gender roles and values.

 

For example, this summer, Tencent’s social media platform WeChat closed down the accounts of LGBTQ associations at some of the nation’s leading universities including Tsinghua and Peking. All that was offered by way of explanation was that they violated unspecified rules. More recently, regulators took aim at androgynous pop idols and told state media not to promote men with a more feminine esthetic.

 

Barriers to medical services remain steep for trans people. Before they can qualify for hormone treatment or gender reassignment surgeries, they’re required to undergo psychological intervention, prove they don’t have a criminal record, and notify family — a step that experts say amounts to parental consent, even for adults.

 

In some cases, the obstacles are too much, and it’s not uncommon for trans people to pursue underground avenues, including self-dosing with hormones acquired online. Self-mutilation, too: Amnesty International reported the case of one transgender woman who obtained her family’s approval only after she removed one of her own testicles by herself.

 

But there has also been progress. “Surveys show increasing acceptance among younger generations, views of pro-LGBT social media hashtags have reached into the hundreds of millions several times (though are often censored shortly after), and LGBT plaintiffs have won pioneering rights in court,” according to a report by OutRight Action International. And the Shanghai clinic is much more than a symbolic achievement. For the children among China’s estimated 4 million transgender people, it could be a lifeline.

It’s important to order your food from the proper, authorized sources.

拥有正规授权的订餐渠道非常重要。

Recently a netizen claimed that an unidentified object was found from the drinks purchased at Xingye Taikoo Hui in Jing’an District, Shanghai. This order was completed by daigou (代购).

After reviewing the surveillance video, the beverage store responded that there was no possibility that their staff contaminated the drinks. Before the drinks left the store, it was fully-qualified without any problem.

After investigation the daigou platform said the daigou process was completed normally without any problem, too. The liability of this accident is currently inconclusive.

一网友称在上海静安区兴业太古汇购买的饮品内喝出疑似“指套”的不明物体,该订单为一单跑腿代购订单。对此,饮品店回应称,经过门店视频查证,未发生可能会污染饮品制作的情况,产品离开门店前,是完全合格的产品,无任何异物在内。平台则对北京商报记者表示,经调查,骑手配送过程正常完成。两家企业的事故责任目前尚无定论。

Be aware that some food delivery services don’t enter an official partnership with the restaurants. In these cases, customers place an order, then the company’s daigou delivery guys go to the restaurant, wrap up the food, and deliver the meal.

通常的食品代购并不是餐厅的正式合作者。流程一般为消费者下单,配送者收到订单并抵达餐厅点餐并打包配送。

There are many circumstances you can’t control. 因此,食品代购有非常多不可控因素。

For example, you don’t know if your food packaging has been opened by the Daigou delivery guy before being delivered.

首先,无法确保代购的食物没有被配送者打开过。

The daigou delivery guy might not have proper training in packaging and handling food products. They might not properly store your items during delivery.

其次,无法保证打包过程保持清洁干净并合乎规范。

The food could become damaged or adulterated, and it could harm the health of consumers. There can also be disputes over food traceability and liability determination.

还有,无法确保代购的食物没有被损坏或掺假,可追溯性与责任认定存在争议。

Here are Sherpa’s, we enter in an official contract and provide training for each and every one of our restaurants. Our own courier team is extensively trained in food safety and handling, and, if there ever is a problem, we can track it down and immediately notify the restaurant of an issue.

食派士与合作餐厅都拥有符合规范的合作协议,配送员都经过严格的培训后上岗,并能够保证食品的安全,同时可追溯性强并拥有完善的责任认定流程。

Be smart and be safe – don’t use daigou delivery services.

健康第一,建议您尽量少使用食品代购服务。
