    Current Situation and Development of Community Nursing in China

    Community nursing is a continuous, dynamic and comprehensive nursing service based on the knowledge and skills of public health and nursing. It takes the population as the service object and maintains and promotes health as the ultimate goal. With China gradually entering the aging society in recent years, community nursing has become an essential direction of nursing development and an inevitable trend of health care development. Despite the strong support of relevant government departments, China’s community nursing is developing continuously. However, because of the late start of development, large population base and other reasons, there are still many problems, such as insufficient supply of nursing services, a significant shortage of nursing facilities, and uneven quality of nursing. This paper mainly discusses the above community health care problems caused by China’s aging population and puts forward some suggestions, for example, the government should appropriately increase investment, strengthen publicity, pay attention to the training of nursing talents, recruit more nursing staff and provide them with corresponding training and assessment, improve the quality of nursing staff, promote the more comprehensive application of community nursing concepts and models, and provide theoretical reference for exploring the establishment of a sound and sustainable community nursing service system in China.

    An Analysis of the Alcohol Interventions Around the World

    Nowadays, global alcohol consumption is expanding rapidly, causing health impacts on global citizens and posing a significant threat to the development of society and countries. Although countries have had relevant policies on alcohol use, it is difficult to achieve the purpose of restriction due to the lack of a unified global convention. This paper emphasizes the focus and direction of alcohol interventions by comparing the different effects of alcohol consumption on different groups of people and puts forward the advantages and disadvantages of the alcohol consumption tax policy, which is now considered the most effective measure in the world, as well as the cognitive blind area that tobacco tax can also intervene in alcohol consumption (synergistic effect of tobacco and alcohol). This paper aims to improve alcohol intervention policies further and make the measures more targeted and implementable according to the corresponding impacts on different groups and the existing defects. Countries are supposed to work together to develop international conventions for alcohol consumption to increase control effectiveness.

    Policy Suggestions Based on the New Model of Combining Medical and Elderly Care Services in Rural Areas

    In recent years, population ageing has been deepening, and promoting the combination of medical care and old-age care services is an important measure to optimize the supply of health and old-age care services for the elderly. Although the policy of combining medical and elderly care services in rural areas has been continuously improved and made positive progress, there are still some problems in policy support, service capacity and talent construction. Therefore, the government should carefully plan the rural medical and pension system, formulate medium- and long-term plans, and actively take reform measures to establish a new rural medical and pension model. At the same time, strengthen the law, government supervision and publicity to promote the stable operation of the new model of combining rural medical care and old-age care.

    The Influence of Motivation on English Learning Initiative of Undergraduate Art and Sports Students

    This article adopts a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis, in order to explore the relationship between motivation and learning initiative of art and sports students. The respondent of the study is the undergraduate art and sports student from several comprehensive universities in China. The analysis establishes the connection between different types of motivation and learning initiative. Learning motivation is divided into six categories: intrinsic interest, learning context, stage achievement, future development, social expectation, and intermediary tools. Data is collected through questionnaires and is analyzed with the help of SPSS software. The results indicate that the English learning initiative of art and sports students shows a decreasing trend after college entrance examination. In terms of motivation, intrinsic motivation is low, while the extrinsic and instrumental motivation are relatively high. It presents a characteristic of “ought-to L2 self”. The higher the proportion of instrumental motivation accounts the total motivation, the lower the initiative for English learning. English learning initiative is also influenced by the degree of dispersion of motivation proportion.The more average the motivation types, the higher the initiative. Both educators and art and sports students need to work together to enhance students’ ideal L2 self motivation for English learning, and thus raise their initiative for English learning.

    The Effect of Rumination on the Stability of Intimate Relationships

    The primary purpose of this investigation is to understand the affect of rumination on intimacy and satisfaction. Many previous studies have found that sharing good memories between partners can make their intimate relationships more stable. Therefore, this paper proposes a hypothesis that rumination will destroy the stability of the partnership and reduce intimacy. In this study, Sojump was used to survey 252 Internet users, including 107 males and 145 females. Three questionnaires were used: Rumination Reflection Questionnaire (RRQ), Relationship Assessment Scale and Relationship Closeness Inventory. Correlation analysis and ANOVA were carried out on the data to analyze the relationship between gender, age and 5 variables. The results showed that rumination and future plans with partners showed a significant positive relationship, so it can be considered that rumination and partner intimacy have a positive relationship. In addition, significant negative correlation between age and rumination. The limitation is that the age range of the sample is relatively concentrated, the selected statistical method only shows correlation, and cannot directly reflect its causal relationship, and the questionnaire is based on individual self-report, which may be affected by subjectivity and memory bias. Future research could focus on the reasons for the positive relationship between rumination and partner planning for the future or the relationship between rumination and relationship satisfaction.

    Regulation of Postpartum Depression and Mental Health in Women

    Postpartum depression (PD) has brought a series of harm to mother and child, family and society. In order to reduce its incidence and improve Women's mental health and quality of life, caregivers should be able to fully assess the risk factors for postpartum depression and predict postpartum depression occurrence, and actively take economic and effective preventive intervention measures. The present study reviews the characteristic of postpartum depression and incidence rate of PD. Moreover, some important impact factors are presented to reveal the complicated influencing mechanisms of PD symptoms. Specifically, influences from family affect the women’s emotion stability. Moreover, prior depression and anxiety in women can also affect DP levels. Taking into account the multifaceted effects of PD on women's psychological well-being, effective interventions need to be better recognized.

    Empirical Study on the Impact of Intensive Extracurricular Education Experiences on the Future Development of Adolescents: A Case Study of the 'Jiwa Phenomenon' in Beijing

    In the context of the “Double Reduction” policy, this paper takes the group of “Tiger Parenting” in Beijing, who have had intensive extracurricular education experiences, as the research subjects, and explores how extracurricular education influences the formation of self-awareness in adolescents. The research findings indicate that extracurricular education not only provides adolescents with more educational choices but also, due to its particularly concentrated distribution in specific areas, serves as a platform for adolescents to engage in social activities with more diverse peers and to gather and disseminate information. At the same time, the “extracurricular class” becomes another space for adolescents, beyond the family and school, where they can encounter different groups and various life scenarios, contributing to the development of their spatiotemporal perspectives. The study concludes that although overly intensive extracurricular education can occasionally lead to psychological stress among adolescents in rare cases, overall, the diverse choices offered by extracurricular education aid adolescents in better exploring their interests. Furthermore, it positively influences their self-confidence and social skills through various means.

    The Influence of Second Language Subtitled Audio-visual Input on Second Language Grammar Acquisition Performance: An Integrative Review

    Previous studies have proven the value of subtitles for vocabulary and comprehension learning in second languages. However, L2 subtitled audio-visual input’s influence on grammar development, a second tricky part of L2 acquisition, has received little attention. This article offers an integrative overview of prior research on the use of subtitled audio-visual input to facilitate L2 grammar learning. Evidence shows that L2 grammar acquisition performance is facilitated by audio-visual input with subtitles in the language, but only for some of the grammatical structures. Grammar learning through L2 Subtitled audio-visual input is substantially less significant than vocabulary learning. Textual enhancement (TE), types of subtitles, learners’ age, and prior knowledge of the language may also affect grammar acquisition performance. Further research is needed to investigate whether L2 learners’ grasp of recently learned or previously learned grammar can be improved through L2 subtitled audio-visual input. Additionally, a research gap exists in implementing L2 subtitled audio-visual input in authentic second language classrooms.

    Research on the Application of Orff Music Pedagogy in Adolescent Depression

    Psychological problems have always existed in society; about 3.3 million people in the world suffer from depression, which has become the fourth most common disease in the world. 12–17 years old is the high-incidence stage of adolescent depression, and depression is one of the main causes of adolescent illness and disability. The audience of music is wider and easy to accept by the majority of groups, and adolescents also have a lot of opportunities to contact music in their daily lives, so they have a strong ability to accept music, and the use of music therapy will have a more significant effect. Among them, Orff music pedagogy is one of the most famous and influential music pedagogies in the world today. Combining music and dance to practice his philosophy of music education in a way that returns to nature, Orff emphasizes the primitiveness of music, which is “close to the soil, natural, physical, suitable for children to learn and experience for everyone”. Therefore, Orf’s educational philosophy and pedagogy were gradually integrated with music therapy. In this paper, literature research and inductive summarization were used to study the effect of Orff music education activities on adolescent depression.

    A Review of Research on Factors Influencing Chinese College Students’ Surrogate Online Health Information Seeking

    Despite the rapid growth of online medical care, the middle-aged and elderly face a significant “digital divide” due to low media literacy. They require assistance from the younger generation to navigate online medical information. College students are a unique group in this process. They possess strong media abilities and enough time for digital feedback, making surrogate online health information seeking normal. Chinese researchers have conducted in-depth studies on the factors influencing college students’ alternative searches for health information. This paper will provide an overview of these studies. The paper summarizes the factors influencing surrogate searches by analyzing what Chinese researchers have adopted. According to the study, three dimensions have been identified. These dimensions include health worries, intrinsic drive value, and the relationship between patients and health providers. It is vital to consider these dimensions when evaluating healthcare experiences and outcomes. However, existing research in China mainly focuses on rural college students, and few studies have examined urban college students. This paper conjectures that media competence does not play the primary role in the surrogate online health information seeking of urban college students and proposes a model for further study.

    Analysis of the Musical Factors and Personal Factors Affecting the Music-evoked Autobiographical Memory among Teenagers

    Music-evoked autobiographical Memory (MEAM) is a distinct form of autobiographical memory that is intricately intertwined with the experience of music. The present study centers its attention on the many musical and human aspects that exerted an influence on the Music-Evoked Autobiographical Memory process among adolescents. Through the administration of a questionnaire to a sample of 312 high school and college students, the researcher discovered that various factors, including the genre of music, the level of mood-matching between the music and the individual, the emotional response elicited during listening, and the level of arousal experienced by the listener, exert substantial influences on the MEAM. The results of this study provide evidence in favor of the concept that individual emotional experiences and the substance of music might influence the process of memory. This result demonstrates the potential implications of MEAM for the fields of music therapy, education, and the music industry.

    The Impact of Tax-Sharing Reform on Housing Market in China

    The impact of Tax-Sharing Reform on the housing market in China and its effectiveness in curbing speculative practices are subjects of critical importance. The Chinese government’s principle of “Housing is for living, not for speculation” underscores the challenges posed by the persistent housing bubble, fueled by speculative behavior. This study delves into the historical context of the 1994 tax-sharing reform, which initially stimulated the growth of the housing market by increasing government revenue and providing local governments with greater financial autonomy. Drawing on a comprehensive analysis, this paper explores the underlying causes of the current issues in the housing market and evaluates the effectiveness of the tax-sharing reform in regulating speculative practices. While the reform exhibited positive outcomes in the past, this study argues that its applicability in the present scenario warrants scrutiny. The evolving market dynamics and contextual factors necessitate a reevaluation of the policy’s effectiveness. Taking a balanced approach, the paper critically examines the benefits and drawbacks of the tax-sharing reform in the context of the current housing market challenges. Additionally, the study presents the author’s perspective on the reform’s limitations and proposes alternative policy suggestions to address the persisting issues more effectively. By offering insights into the reform’s impact on the housing market’s development trajectory, this research aims to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between fiscal policies and the Chinese housing market. The paper uses qualitative method and case study to illustrate the topic.

    Research on the Educational Plight Faced by Rural Left-behind Children in China

    Due to the rapid development of China’s cities and the increasing inequality between urban and rural areas, Chinese left-behind children have been neglected by society for a long time, which should make their educational plight a worthwhile issue to be explored. The research utilizes literature review to discuss some reasons for those children’s educational plights they are facing. Various researches from other authors is drawn to probe into more dimensions of the factors. Then, the result is presented that there are three aspects among that deeply influence the quality of education the rural left-behind children are receiving, including parents, society and news media. In short, the departure of parents makes children suffer from unhealthy mental conditions and fail to gain adequate cognitive knowledge, leading to their trouble in receiving high-quality education. Moreover, the vicious characteristics of rural society which delivers backward ideologies is also a culprit that prevents them from getting the same education as urban children. Lastly, the one-sided coverage of those children by news media shapes them as pure victims or threatening people, letting others keep away and refuse to help them and also causing children’s wrong perceptions of themselves and their living environments. As to the research conclusion, their difficulties in education should be paid more attention and the relevant institutions are supposed to take action to drop them out of such plight.

    The Impact of Examination System Reform on English Education

    With the acceleration of globalization, English education in China has become increasingly important. In recent years, China’s education system, especially the examination system, has undergone a series of reforms. However, as these reforms take place, new issues have emerged one after another. This paper believes that as the transition of China’s examination system to the “New Gaokao” system, the focus of the examination has shifted from rote learning to quality education. However, after the reform, the main problems in English education today include an excessive emphasis on exam-oriented teaching, wastage of educational resources and low resource utilization efficiency, as well as a weakening advantage for top English students. To address these problems, it is crucial and essential to transform the approach to English education development, enhance the categorization of digital resources, and improve policies related to examinations. This article believes that only by fully understanding and addressing these issues can the new examination system truly promote the healthy and sustainable development of English education.

    Analysis of the Problems and Countermeasures of Home-School Cooperation under the Background of Double Reduction Policy

    In the past 30 years, the practice of home-school cooperation has been extremely helpful in advancing the growth of education in China. However, under the influence of the “double reduction” policy background, the original problems in the process of home-school cooperation have become increasingly prominent. For example, the boundary of home-school power and responsibility is blurred, the awareness of home-school cooperation is weak, and the content and form of home-school communication are single. Therefore, it is very important to build a home-school cooperation platform and build a home-school education pattern with interaction and cooperation in all aspects. There is still more research to be done on how to encourage home-school cooperation in the context of “double reduction.” This paper addresses the current issues with home-school cooperation in the modern day and offers remedies to clarify the rights and responsibilities of home-school, raise home-school cooperation awareness, and create a thorough communication system. To encourage pupils’ overall development and to build strong home-school interaction.

    Marginalized Education: Dilemmas and Solutions for Rural Chinese Teachers

    The difficulties that rural teachers face in China are complicated and varied. Not only do these teachers face minimal educational resources, but they also face low pay and a sense of isolation. However, underlying these quandaries is a great lot of societal duty. This study uses the literature review method to show the issues that teachers confront and provide solutions. First, the government can decrease turnover and address their fundamental requirements by boosting teachers’ wages. Second, the government can deepen rural curriculum reforms to allow teachers to design content better and increase student participation. Finally, more extraordinary psychological support services from all sectors of society for rural teachers can help improve teacher productivity and mental health. In conclusion, by stressing rural education and giving essential support to rural teachers, the government may increase the quality of rural education and the development of rural areas. More importantly, boosting rural education is a critical step toward achieving equality in education between urban and rural areas.
