This survey was conducted only on the students who are planning to study abroad (including their parents), providing a compelling and convincing evidence. This is a typical pair of push-pull factor that drives students to study abroad: the unsatisfying educational system in China “pushes students out” and the higher quality of education in other countries “pulls students in”. China is very famous for its rigid education system, starting from primary school, students are taught to obey everything teachers say and not having their own thoughts in order to get to good grades, and everything they had done since primary school, is to perform well in the Gaokao (the Chinese version of the SAT, with only one chance) and get them into a good university. Also, the Chinese educational system focuses only on the scores, instead of the cultivation multifaceted students. Even in the high school affiliated to Renmin University, one of the best high schools in China, teachers in the main campus were relatively open-minded compared to those of other schools, yet they still discriminate students whose talents are not studying and who participates in school activities a lot.
In China, cooperative joint venture companies, equity joint venture companies, wholly foreign-owned enterprises are the dominant types of FDI in China being absorbed into China. However, this has not always been the case; at the onset of the reform period, the joint ventures were the only entry FDI forms that were allowed in China, save for the SEZs. This was partly due to China’s ideology and also because China preferred it as the better suited FDI type for tapping into advanced technologies. However, in 1986 onwards, China gave the green light for wholly foreign-owned enterprises to be established in areas that were outside the Special Economic Zones. As a result other FDI forms picked up and the cooperative and equity joint ventures advanced to become the most dominant forms of FDI.
Therefore, they try to seek “Chinese School” which could give a better explanation on Chinese actions. “Tianxia system” proposed by Zhao Tingyang is one of the Chinese School. Tianxia world view “Tianxia System” originated from Zhou Dynasty. Zhao suggested that the current international relations theories are too focused on internationality and fail to develop a world
That is why Yin and Yang theory plays an important role in making diagnosis and in choosing a proper way of treatment. Yin and yang is also associated with people’s emotions. From ancient times Chinese have known about the significance of emotional factors, so they had a deep knowledge in treatment of psychiatric diseases (Wong, 2002). However, Chinese medicine is not specialized in psychiatry, because Chinese believe in inseparability of physical and mental characteristics. For example, too much of rage has a harmful effect on liver, as liver is responsible for blood regulation, consequently this will affect resistance which blood gives against diseases.

He emphasizes that sensible objects are what makes up the real world and each material object has existence of its own. Besides the Platonic dualism about the form and matter, the opposite principles of yin and yang also had great contribution to metaphysics. In Chinese philosophy, nature is observed through the patterns and interactions between the two polar forces. Yin and Yang are two opposite but complementary forces, yin composed of weakness, softness, cold and femininity; yang associates with force, hardness and masculinity. However, the two forces brings equilibrium and harmony.
In the first chapter, “The scope of Orientalism” Said points out numerous scholarly writers from the West, such as Balfour, Kissinger, Gibbs etc. as evidence that they draw a geographical line between the West and the East, thus creating a consciousness of “we”, the good, civilized West, and “them”, the primitive, evil East. The second chapter “Orientalist structures and restructures” uses evidence of de Sacy and Renan, in order to retrace the steps of modern orientalism in the enlightenment period. As, according to Said, “the essential aspects of modern Orientalist theory and practice… can be understood… as a set of structures inherent from the past…”(122). The final and biggest chapter, “Orientalism Now” gives an account of the Orientalists from the late 19th century to late 20th century.
Yin-Yang theory is the Chinese symbol of creation that explained the binary opposition and the balance between two opposites. According to the terms of yin and yang, women were yin and men were yang. “Yin was soft, yielding, receptive, passive, reflective, and tranquil, whereas yang was hard, active, assertive, and dominating. Day and night, winter and summer, birth and death.” (Ebrey, 2010). Yin Yang theory emphasize the belief that women have to follow men and cannot make any decisions.
China was facing an economic growth and a huge development, even though the international financial crisis of 2008 left some marks on several aspects of China, above all the export-oriented light industry in southern China (chinapolitik.de, 2009). The Chinese market could be part of a quite high inflation rate. The average inflation of China in 2008 was 5.97% (inflation.eu, 2015). Companies that knew how to combine the Chinese taste with the Western management style, had also a big impact and success in China market, such as Hong Kong’s Café de Coral that offered a combination of Western and Asian meals (Ko,
In modern China, people engaged in commercial activities also sign a contract, but the residual effects of deep-rooted cultural values of Chinese style, making the potential relationship more important than the contract itself. Meanwhile, the bidding and awarding procedures implemented today in China are likely to form the hierarchy of owners, contractors, and subcontractors. Therefore, we recommend: Chinese project managers tend to put the owner as the parent, valuing long-term cooperation with the owners. The Western project managers tend to put contract owners as equal partners, valuing signing a good contract with
