"Smart solution to streamlining medical care in Shanghai"

Shanghai public hospitals, beset by long queues, overloaded doctors and cumbersome registration and payment procedures, are turning to modern technology to streamline medical care.

All a patient needs is a smartphone.

Through apps and the WeChat platform, patients can now make appointments to see a doctor, register online and keep tabs on wait times.

After an outpatient visit, they can also pay their bills and even check on their test results by phone.

"Sudden death linked to watching World Cup overnight"

An overnight session watching the FIFA World Cup may have caused the death of a 25-year-old man in the eastern Chinese city of Suzhou.

The man was found dead in his room early on Saturday morning with his TV set still airing football.
Doctors said they suspect his death was linked to staying up late watching the games, which are taking place in the middle of the night in China due to the time difference with tournament host country Brazil.

Although the doctors did not specify what exactly may have caused this fatality, exhaustion or a heart attack are possible factors. They warned football fans to be cautious about their health.

"Construction sites top mental health study"

Construction sites are among Australia's most caring places to work.

That's according to a major national survey conducted by the mental health charity beyondblue.

It found construction workers are the most likely to say they work in a mentally healthy environment.

The least likely are agriculture and public administration workers.

Geographically, workplaces in Western Australia are the most mentally healthy and those in Queensland the least.
It also also found that around 50 per cent of employees do not believe they work in a mentally healthy environment and one in five had taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt mentally unwell.

Supportive and caring managers and flexible working hours are important attributes of a mentally healthy workplace.
These organisations also encourage workers to take lunch breaks, prevent discrimination and have support programs.

"Children as young as five to be taught entrepreneurial skills - and how to make a profit"

Primary school children as young as five will be taught how to be entrepreneurial, under radical new government plans being unveiled this week.

The sweeping reforms mean primary and secondary schools across the country will be required to teach young children about the benefits of business and how to make profits.

David Cameron has backed the reforms being drawn up by former cabinet minister Lord Young of Graffham who advises the prime minister on competitiveness in Britain.

The moves are aimed at promoting self-employment and encouraging more people to set up their own company.

Lord Young's Enterprise for All report will stress the importance of educating young children about entrepreneurism.
