Children rest on school desks in Xi'an

The photos capturing children huddling up on desks to sleep in a classroom have gone viral on Chinese websphere.

A primary school in Xi’an city, Shaanxi province allowed its students to take naps on their desks during noon breaks.

And it had the support from the children’s parents, according to a teacher from the school’s dean office.

Because the lunch in school starts at 12:10 p.m. and the afternoon classes are at 2 p.m., parents felt pressed for time to pick up their children to have a rest at home.

“Taking a little nap on desks can make the students energetic through the afternoon,” the teacher added.

As the school has no place for nearly 3,000 children to have a noon rest, they could only huddle up on desks.

When questioned, “did any kid get hurt falling from the desk,” the school replied they had teachers supervising the noon rest.

Besides, the school would like to remind parents to prepare little pillows and quilts for the new school year.

Li Bingbing shows up in Hong Kong to promote Resident Evil: Retribution

On September 5, 2012, Chinese actress Li Bingbing showed up at the Hong Kong’s premiere event of her latest movie “Resident Evil: Retribution.”

But for the last world premiere of the sci-fi movie held in Tokyo on Sept. 3, Li refused to appear amid the escalating tensions between Japan and China over Diaoyu Islands.

In response later, Li’s manager admitted, the politics were truly involved and her absence was a demonstration against Japan’s claim to Diaoyu Islands.

The fifth installment of the game-to-film franchise was scheduled for global release on September 14. In the film, Li Bingbing plays secret agent Ada Wong, a crucial character to the story.

The film is believed to a stepping-stone for the actress to Hollywood.
