People don't trust anything anymore 怀疑成为国人集体意识
Distrust has seeped into the collective consciousness of Chinese people, Xinhua reports. Here are things they don't trust: the food they eat; the Railway Bureau's ability to solve problems with ticket-buying; doctors who may or may not prescribe unnecessary medicine; and the justice system's ability to be fair in court. Experts say trust is a "matter of life" for a society. They think the government should do something -- perhaps formulate relevant laws and construct a civil society -- to regain people's trust and make them happy. 新华网报道,怀疑一切已成为中国整个人群的集体意识。好多事情他们不再相信:吃饭不相信食品的安全性,出行不相信铁路行业解决买票难的能力,上医院不相信医生没有给自己多开药,打官司不相信司法会保持公正。而专家指出:信任关系到一个社会的生死存亡。政府应当做出点事情,从法制、建立公民社会等多方面努力,才能重构信任,获得幸福。

Steve Jobs takes 3rd medical leave 乔布斯三度休病假

"At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health," Jobs wrote in an email to staff.
