    Thanks, Jim! I'm a vet, and a patient ingested baits containing this active compound (everything is ok with him). Thanks!

    靸 sǎ - one meaning is a type of straw slipper, but what I liked was the dialect verbal sense: 方言,把布鞋后帮踩在脚后跟下. So that's a special verb for wearing your cloth shoes with the heels crushed down like slippers.

    The time can be as short as only minutes. For example, it's fine to walk across from Shenzhen into Hong Kong, turn right around and come back. Or it's fine to cross from Zhuhai at Gongbei into Macau, turn right around and come back, getting stamped into Mainland China 5 minutes after you exited it. The border officials don't blink or give you hard looks. No length of stay stipulations at all. In point of fact, however, I usually take advantage of the exit requirement to spend a few days in someplace of interest. Kunming, where I live, is currently connected by convenient air routes to much of SE Asia. In about two hours I can be in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. A little longer gets me to Malaysia and Indonesia. Tickets are cheap and this makes it attractive to explore other countries in the region in conjunction with meeting the 60-day exit requirement. Nonetheless, I wish it were every 90 days instead of every 60 days. Once one returns with a new visa stamp 盖章,it's required that you go to your local police station 派出所 and give them a xerox copy of it for their records. This lets them know that you are in compliance with the terms of your visa. It's usually fast for me now, but in the past it has meant waiting in line and spending most of an hour.

    In general I would not recommend someone from the Western countries with good education system to kick-off their academic life in China. Even though you consider these "top universities of China", their global reputation is still under development, and there is a good chance that a scarce number of people would recognize them in case you decide to come back to Europe and work and live here. At least do your bachelor here in Europe, then as a university student apply for scholarships in China, spend a year there as a language student, see for yourself whether you like what you see, and you can apply for master's degree program later (with quite good scholarship options).

    Ah yes that makes sense! Where I work I was putting out duvet covers, they come packed in a box and there was a random piece of cardboard inside the box with that writing on it, so I was curious as to what it said

    When I applied for mine, there wasn't a box on the form to request a 10 year visa. I just typed in the request for a 10 year visa. However, that was in 2017. They may have updated the form now. A side note: if your passport expires, you can still use the 10 yr visa, you just need to bring the old passport (containing the visa) with the new passport. I was uncomfortable the 1st time, but a flight attendant friend said it would be OK. She was right. It's never been a problem.

    Generally, if something's interesting enough to post about, we'd appreciate it if people write at least a line or two about it, rather than a simple copy and paste.
