1) Islamic State of Iraq and Syria officially known as the Islamic State is a Salafi jihadist militant group that follows a fundamentalist, Salafi doctrine of Sunni Islam. ISIS gained global prominence in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq, followed by its capture of Mosul.๏‚The group has been designated a terrorist organization by the United Nations. ISIS is widely known for its videos of beheadings and other types of executions of both soldiers and civilians, including journalists and aid workers, and its destruction of cultural heritage sites. The United Nations holds ISIS responsible for human rights abuses and war crimes. ISIS also committed ethnic cleansing on an historic and unprecedented scale in northern Iraq. ๏‚ŽIn July 2017, the group lost control of its largest city, Mosul, to the Iraqi army. Following this major defeat, ISIS continued to lose territory to the various states and other military forces allied against it, until it controlled no meaningful territory by November 2017.๏‚ U.S. military officials and simultaneous military analyses reported in December 2017 that the group retained a mere 2 percent of the territory they had previously held. On 10 December 2017, Iraq's Prime Minister said that Iraqi forces had driven the last remnants of Islamic State from the country, three years after the militant group captured about a third of Iraq's territory.

4) Blind date, a comeback in modern Chinese life๏‚ŒIn ancient China most of people got married with the help of a matchmaker and the arrangements of their parents. The man's side, led by the matchmaker, would visit the girl's family to confirm each other's stance. The step is called blind date.๏‚Nowadays, there are millions of single people in big cities like Shanghai and Beijing, so the traditional practice of blind date has made a comeback in modern Chinese life.๏‚ŽA price list for Chinese blind dates that has been widely circulated on the net has triggered heated discussion with users dubbing the list a "chain of scorn in marriage". The list is a common guideline for parents who go to "blind date parks" in Beijing looking for matches for their single children. The parks display profiles about single men and women detailing their household registration, income, property, education and other hard constraints.๏‚A ranking system has evolved to divide singles as top, high class, standard, low, simple and no consideration. To be grouped in the top echelon, a man should be worth at least 5.6 million yuan, have a Beijing registered residence, own a house in Beijingโ€™s key regions, own a good car and earn more than 50,000 yuan a month, have a master's or doctorate, or have studied abroad.
