    This article explores the themes of manipulation, exploitation, and resistance in the TV show The Boys, which portrays a world where superheroes are controlled and dehumanized by powerful corporations for profit. Through its compelling storytelling and thought-provoking analysis, the show sheds light on the dangers of unchecked corporate power and the impact it has on society. By examining the parallels between the show's depiction of corporate influence and real-world issues, this essay delves into the broader implications of allowing greed and power to dictate social norms and values. The article highlights the importance of collective action and awareness in challenging corporate dominance, as depicted by the resistance group in the series. Ultimately, The Boys serves as a powerful critique of unbridled corporate power, urging viewers to question the role of corporations in shaping our world and remain vigilant against the influence of profit-driven entities. In a society dominated by capitalism and power, The Boys is a timely reminder of the dangers of allowing corporations to wield unchecked power over individuals and society as a whole, calling for greater awareness and resistance against corporate interests.

    Bailu Plain, written by Chen Zhongshi between 1988 and 1992, won the 4th Mao Dun Literature Award in China in 1998 and was selected for “the Collection of 70 Novels in the 70 Years of the People’s Republic of China” in 2019. At the same time, the novel has also been adapted into various art forms such as films, TV series, theaters, and a Qin opera. In the face of such an excellent work, many scholars consider it a selected topic. However, only some scholars have applied Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs theory to analyze the motivations of the characters in the play. In this paper, we review Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory, analyze the motivations for the behavior of two female characters in the work of Bailu Plain, Tian Xiao’e, and Bai Ling, using different levels of the theory, and conclude the basic rules. With this article as an example, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory can be used as a theoretical framework for analyzing characters’ behavior in literary works in the field of social sciences, in addition to business and management psychology.

    In the information age, symbols serve as fundamental tools of communication, and their design and application have become significant areas within modern communication science. According to Saussure, symbols are representative signs of objects, expressing specific content and meaning through particular forms. This study explores the mechanisms and principles of symbols in information dissemination through literature reviews and case analyses, emphasizing their roles in cultural transmission, cognition, and behavioral patterns. With the acceleration of globalization and digitization, symbol design faces new challenges and opportunities, especially with the advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies pushing symbol design towards automation and intelligence. Furthermore, cross-cultural design of symbols requires consideration of adaptability and effectiveness in varying cultural, social, and technological contexts. This research proposes strategies for cultural sensitivity and adaptability in symbol dissemination across different cultures, aiming to provide new perspectives for semiotics theory and offer scientific guidance and strategies for symbol design practices in fields such as advertising, brand management, media production, and user interface design, thus enhancing effective global information dissemination and cultural exchange.

    Homestay is a prevalent type of residential arrangement, particularly in the realms of education and foreign exchange. This arrangement involves individuals or students opting to stay in someone else's residence, rather than their own, and typically engaging in communal living and daily activities with the host family. The paper examines the frequently neglected elements that contribute to a satisfactory homestay experience, utilising both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Specifically, it explores the impact of external social factors, such as educational institutions, communities, and organisations, as well as the influence of gender on the homestay experience. This research contends that extrinsic social elements have a substantial impact on students' perceptions of a satisfactory homestay experience. Furthermore, female and male students possess distinct standards when it comes to selecting a highly competent homestay family. The paper asserts that the consideration of social and gender variables should be given more attention when examining the perspectives of students regarding their homestay experience.
