What is a baseline state of “health,”

In 1948, the World Health Organization defined 'health' as a "state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Nearly 70 years later, we still are trying to define what is a baseline state of "health," as primary care continues to reactively address medical issues.

最美是集美

When I moved to Jimei 9 months ago, I was not familiar with the place. I got used to it after half a year. According to one of my neighbors, “Some part of Jimei is nice, some part of Jimei is disgusting”. Not for only once, when I walk along some beautiful quiet streets of Jimei, I feel the beauty of it and feel like in the heaven. Even till now  I am still not familiar with it, but when the bus drives along the bridge and I look at that place, I know I do know something about this place and it is part of my memory for ever. And just before the Chinese new year, I hear the song composed by one of the Jimei people. “最美是集美,集天下之美”.
