    a) He gave reporters a piece of his mind during a briefing in
    uncharacteristically fluid Cantonese. In fluent Canmtonese, he told the reporters exactly wha he thought about them [not a good thought, evidently. They appear to have offended him]

    b) Parents are working longer hours and cutting back on minding costs
    to cope with the economic crisis. They are reducing on the amount they pay others to look after their children.

    2) What is the difference between physician, doctor & medical
    practitioner? All three practice medicine. A physician and doctor will have been through full medical training and hold a recognised degree, allowing themselves to be addressed as "Doctor"; a medical practitioner may be a nurse with extra training.
