Brief translation for the articles above. Sorry, the words are quite small so it's difficult for a non-chinese educated person like me to read out all the words clearly. I started to squint my eyes 2 hours from reading them so I'll just post the relevant information here for the time being. Luckily, I found a larger version of the scan from so I'll go home and try to translate them in detail tomorrow, ok?
