Risking health for appearance
  Zhou Chuna, a 15-year-old online personality known as Xiaona, shared her experience of cosmetic surgery (整形手术) on the internet recently and caused a lot of discussion. According to Workers Daily, Zhou started getting cosmetic surgery at the age of 13 and has since spent about 4 million yuan on more than 100 surgeries.
  Although Zhou's case is rare, more younger people in China are undergoing cosmetic surgery, Xinhua reported on Aug 31.
  A medical beauty industry white paper released by iResearch Global said that 19 percent of Chinese medical beauty consumers in 2020 were aged 18 or under.
  During the summer holidays, double eyelid (双眼皮) surgery is common among students. Other popular cosmetic surgeries among Chinese young people include liposuction (抽脂) and nose jobs, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
  While many beauty clinics (诊所) claim that being more physically attractive gives people an advantage in society, failed cases of cosmetic surgery are common to see. According to Xinhua, an underage girl surnamed Zhang had double eyelid surgery, but she couldn't open her eyes after surgery due to errors (失误) made during the operation.
  Moreover, Xinhua pointed out that there is furious competition within the medical beauty industry to gain more teenage customers.
  Some businesses use slogans like "Only by becoming prettier can you be more loved" to spread"appearance anxiety ( 外貌焦虑)" And many beauty centers advertise directly to teenagers, encouraging them to "make some changes and let your classmates be amazed by your beauty in the new semester", reported Xinhua.
  Some clinics mislead their clients by stating low costs. One internet user said she saw an advertisement for a 15 yuan treatment for pimples (青春痘) but the beautician gave her a year's treatment plan which cost 8, 000.
  Many experts have said it's improper for teenagers to undergo cosmetic surgery. And many are calling for stricter regulations on the beauty industry when it comes to the treatment of teenagers.
18.  Picture this:You're searching the Internet and come across a website with interesting articles. Some are news stories. Their goal is to share information Others only look like news stories. They're actually advertisements, or ads.
  The goal of an ad is to get you to buy something. How do you, the reader, tell the difference between a news story and an ad?
  Back when I was growing up, it was easier. We got most of our information from newspapers. Big news stories appeared on the front page, and ads were boxed off and clearly labeled. But on the Internet, the two are often shown together. It can be hard to tell which is which.
  That's why my research group did a study. My research team showed kids the home page of a popular digital magazine. We asked them to tell us which was a news story and which was an ad.
  Most were great at identifying certain types of ads. "It has a coupon (优惠券) code, a big company logo, and the words limited (有限的) time offer", one student wrote about an ad on the site. So where did kids get stumped?
  Some ads seem exactly the same as real news stories. They have titles and contain information. But they may also include the words sponsored content. Sponsored content' is a way of saying that something is an ad. Companies paid money for it to appear so that readers will see their stories, buy their products, and like what the company stands for.
  As a reader, you have a right to know who's behind the information. So look for the phrase sponsored content' (And look carefully. Sometimes, it will be written in tiny letter. The Internet is a sea of information. To use it well, we not only have to know how to swim but also how to avoid the sharks. Learning to tell the difference between an ad and a news story is an important stop to becoming Internet-smart.
19.  "My fate (命运) is not fixed and depends on myself," Nezha says in the movie. He believes that he can control his own fate and choose to be a demon (恶魔) or a god.
  That's what the 2019 home﹣grown animated film Nezha impresses cinema﹣goers the most, especially the young. The movie's focus on free will resonates (共鸣) with young movie fans.
  The film tells the story of Nezha. The boy is bon a demon into a loving family and, in the end, becomes a hero. Nezha is based on the Chinese novel The Investiture of the Gods (《封神榜》) . In the novel, Nezha is born during the Shang dynasty. He is the third son of a government official. The boy fights against the Dragon King and eventually kills himself to save his people from the Dragon King's anger.
  As he dies, Nezha tells his parents that he will"return his bones to his father and his flesh (肉) to his mother," so that he will owe (欠) them nothing. He is later reborn as a god.
  In the past, the character was known as a free spirit and an anti-authority (反抗权威的) hero. And this was what gave Yang Yu, the film's director and screenwriter, the idea of the movie. It took him two years to write the story, and the film was in production for three years.
  Nezha has been the hottest movie this summer. It was a great box office success. However, this is not the first time we have seen Nezha on the big screen. Forty years ago, China's first widescreen color animated film, Prince Nezha's Triumph Against Dragon King, came out. It was the first Chinese animated film to be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.
