BEIJING – Chinese state media say 12 out of 22 workers trapped in a gold mine by an explosion for a week are alive as hundreds of rescuers try to get them to safety.

China's mining industry has a reputation for bypassing safety requirements in the face of massive demand for coal and valuable minerals, although increased surveillance has reduced the frequency of accidents, which claim an average of 5,000 miners a year.

In two accidents in the southwest mega-city of Chongqing last year, 39 miners were killed, prompting the central government to order another safety overhaul.

Student refusing to cover nose with mask booted from university exams in Japan : worldnews


This is the best I could do. original reduced by 61%. (I am a bot)


A student taking the standardized university entrance exams was disqualified on Saturday for refusing to cover his nose with a face mask, in violation of rules set by the exam operator to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The National Center for University Entrance Exams has stated on its website and in student brochures that people can only take exams if they are "properly" wearing face masks.

Although a supervisor warned the student of possible disqualification prior to the seventh and final instruction, the student continued to disregard the instruction and, according to the center, failed the exam.
