Verbling "Bans" concerning the people's interests should be considered carefully Before the leader makes a decision, he should consider it carefully, has he fully heard the opinions of the masses or has he fully considered the interests of the masses? Beijing's Subway has always been the object of envy by citizens from other cities: multi-line, low fare ... but recently, due to a "ban", the Beijing subway has become the focus of public opinion. This "ban" is a "letter on the views of freely distributing the Beijing Daily Messenger but stopping sales of other newspapers and periodicals at all the rail transit stations" issued by the Public Transport team of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau to the Beijing subway Corps. According to this "ban", Beijing subway stations will no longer be allowed to sell newspapers except the "Beijing Daily Messenger" that can still be distributed free of charge.

Lots of different words share the same spellings and pronunciations. Some of these words are confusing even for native speakers, especially in writing. For example, when do we use “affect” and when do we use “effect”? Or what about the verbs “to bear” and “to bare”? For learners of English, these similar words can be incredibly confusing.
