China begins protecting the rights of digital service workers
Millions of people are now employed in China's digital economy. Experts predict that in three years the number of jobs in this sector will increase to 380 million.
56 new professions have appeared in the register of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security over the past three years. A third of them are related to the Internet and include both the creation of video content and direct sales during streams - broadcasts in real time.
At the same time, two-thirds of digital workers are self-employed or part-time. This opens up additional opportunities, including for those who have them limited. Protection of the rights and interests of people with disabilities comes to the fore.
Shen Jingran, Vice Director of the Education and Employment Department of the Beijing Federation of the Disabled:< br>
“By the end of last year, 22,000 people with disabilities found jobs in the digital economy or started their own businesses there. This amounted to one fifth of the total employment of people with disabilities and became a new point of its growth.”
In 2021, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security published a decree requiring online platform to respect the rights and interests of its employees.
The authorities of many regions and cities have gone even further. In Guangdong province, four professions, including couriers and taxi drivers, can qualify for health insurance.
The Celestial Empire has completed the formation of the first network of orbiting ocean observation satellites
< br> China has successfully launched the Gaofen-3 satellite into orbit for remote observation and study of the ocean. This launch was the final in the formation of the first orbital network, which includes two more satellites.
The new device will be used to monitor the situation at sea and prevent disasters, as well as to monitor the environment. Compared to its predecessors, its image quality is much higher.
To perform its tasks, the satellite is equipped with radar equipment. This allows you to take pictures regardless of cloudiness and light levels with detail that can be compared with aerial photographs.

“After the three satellites form a telecommunications network, they can quickly receive sea and land observation data in any weather. The maximum time between repeated observations of a given area will be reduced from 15 to five hours.
After six months of testing in orbit, the third Gaofen-3 satellite will begin regular operation.
Liu Jianqiang, Deputy Director of the National Marine Satellite Application Service:
“The Haiyang-1 series satellites are ocean observation satellites . They are especially effective for monitoring oil spills and water blooms. Oceanographic satellites from the Haiyan-2 series are responsible for monitoring the dynamics of the sea surface. This includes wind data, altitude and sea surface temperature. The information will be used for disaster prevention, meteorology and transportation. The new satellites of the Gaofen-3 series are designed to monitor both land and sea throughout the day.
At present, China has already launched 12 orbiters, that monitor the surface of the ocean. Each satellite revolves around the Earth 14 times a day, scanning space up to 3000 kilometers.
The bird population in the Longan Lake Reserve is growing due to environmental protection
More and more migratory birds remain in the Longan Lake Nature Reserve in Hubei Province. Previously, the national park served only as a transit point, but this has changed due to the government's persistent efforts to restore the waters. .jpg" title="KP-92-15.jpg">
Every year, more than 160,000 birds flock to Longan Lake for wintering. To protect the "bird paradise", the administration of the reserve created a patrol system in 2016.
Wang Guohan, Longan Lake Nature Reserve Patrolman:
“As a patrolman, I have to patrol the area regularly. Usually this happens during the day, but sometimes I'm on duty at night. I pay special attention to bird watching. If I see that people are causing damage to the environment, I must stop it immediately.”
In the past, local residents made a living by catching fish and cultivating the surrounding land. Illegal activities have seriously disrupted the ecological balance of the area. It took several years to restore the fish stock, and the agricultural land was moved to another area.
Huang Zeyang, representative of the administration of the Longan Lake Nature Reserve:
“First, we will continue to monitor migratory birds. Secondly, we plan to increase patrolling of lakes. And, thirdly, we will continue to restore the wetlands of the reserve, there is still a lot of work to do.”
Today, 188 species of birds live in the Longan Lake Reserve, as well as 10 species of wild animals that are on the verge of extinction.
The park is especially famous for the fact that in winter large flocks of white-headed cranes and black storks fly there. Thanks to this, the reserve received the title of "White-headed Crane Village" from the China Wildlife Conservation Association.
