Shenzhen may introduce the mainland's first 'Good Samaritan' law:

Bjorn Berg - At least it's a start, though it's disappointing that this isn't being dealt with in a national-level law (although I would assume such a law to follow). I just hope it will make a real difference in how bystanders react to people in need of assistance.

Patrick Siu - As was explained in a book from the mainland a few years ago, life is and always [has] been being price-tagged 'everywhere' in the world. The problem is that China is always bad at applying subtlety to this inconvenient truth. Or worse, China is simply making wrong price tags.

Sam Ho - Of course, protection is needed to safeguard the interests of rescuers, but a truly Good Samaritan considers nothing but the lives and safety of those in need. With or without the law, they will still offer their help, undeterred by the possibility that they could be sued for compensation or even be subject to criminal charges. This is real altruism.

The Heung Yee Kuk may use chief executive election votes as a bargaining tool:

Marcus H. Langston - Beijing should come down on these kuk idiots like a tonne of bricks for illegal construction. It's got lots of experience in this method.

Beach food kiosks will have early closing times and permanent furniture:

Kelvin Ng - The kiosk operators dug their own graves by being too selfish and money-digging in the first place. The patrons are also to blame because they made too much noise well into the night and indulged themselves too much (in terms of noise and alcohol) on the public beaches as if they were their own party grounds. No one would ever bother to complain if they had acted in a reasonable and considerate manner.
