Working via social media platforms after getting off duty has become a heated discussion topic in China in recent years. A case in which one employee successfully won her lawsuit against her employer caught great public attention and was hailed as a typical example of the country's judicial system showing initiative.

In an interview with the Global Times, a Philippine scholar envisioned how the situation in the South China Sea will evolve in 2024 and said that the US should not interfere in the disputes between Manila and Beijing.
