Share What Americans Think
MichaelM 2019-6-23 13:50
Today, a parent of one of my students came to my class for a discussion about her child's English learning. She said, "I know Michael is not Chinese, but, he needs to know how Chinese parents think." She went on to tell how 'Chinese parents think'. Of course, I know several Chinese parents who do not think this way, so, I know that 'all Chinese parents' do not think as she does. The fact is, she is only telling me what she thinks. She feels that it makes her case stronger if she can m ...

Share Easy to Predict the man of Thirty in the Future
shehemego 2019-6-18 10:36
What am I going to be when I am thirty? Looking at who I am now, I CAN predict the man I will be-- the same as I am, with only age number larger. The right thing to do is say I WILL meet the challenge And see how much and how long I can shoulder it As days slip, with normal life, normal work Being Ordinary is acceptable to me, right? Why seeing the peers find their good jobs, earn their success makes me feel misery? I look at storys of millionairs, the disabled of success, ...

Share Why I Live In China
MichaelM 2019-6-11 14:48
If you read my blog often, you know that I came to China in 2011. My intention was to stay a year, experience the culture and return to my comfortable life in America. However, once I got here and realized the desperate need for quality English education, I felt that I could do something to change the fate of many Chinese children. Now, I've been here off and on for about 7 years total. It has been quite difficult to live here as a foreigner because, well, not everyone is so nice to for ...

Share Why Bill Gates Gives Away Money
MichaelM 2019-6-7 03:50
Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and most American billionaires have committed themselves to giving away 90% or more of their money in their lifetime. When asked why he would give away his money, Gates replied, "The pursuit in life is not about money. It is about making a difference in the lives of others and making an impact on humanity." This is why he travels to impoverished regions of the world and directly gets involved in the lives of the less fortunate. Charity (donating money) is a tra ...

Share Americans Don't 'Go Dutch'
MichaelM 2019-6-6 16:09
I just read a blog on here that stated that 'it is well known that Western people go Dutch.' It further stated that Western people don't entertain or invite others to meals at restauarants. I'm not sure who told someone these things, but, it isn't at all true. Americans love inviting others to restaurants for meals. In my nearly 6 decades of living, I've never once 'gone Dutch.' In fact, I've never witnessed this in America. Americans love inviting others to a meal at a restaurant and do ...

Share Two Systems, Two Standards?
J.E.Overington 2019-5-30 19:06
Aristotle and the Han: truth without false, good without bad, because we have standards in society, and we keep the peace with the people across the river since they are useful. The western banks have unstable lands, forcing wildebeasts into the waiting crocodiles, so we build reclaimed land to interfere with nature again. The question is: How to have the good without the bad? How to keep the peace among extremists? Improving a slandered reputation by working well is easier. How to im ...

Share If you could be a celebrity chef, what would your specialty be?
J.E.Overington 2019-5-27 04:59
"If I could learn to cook food, I would make roast chicken and roast turkey for Saith every day," said Nirvana. Nirvana mothered the tribe, having jumped past Death one warm February day in Penghu. The entire tribe, including my son, were born on 25 January, or would have been had it been decent then. So January 25th is my children's birthday. I have learned to cook. I make salmon tomato olive stew with fried mushrooms. Inspired by Chinese buns, I wrap foods in puff pastry and bake it i ...

In the ancient Chinese novel The Journey to the West, the White-Bone-Spirit was so evil that she always tried to hunt human and then sucked up what insde his bones for living! The story is quite horrible when I first saw it on TV! Now I see this legend hints more wisdom of our tradition medicine science: You are what you have eatten! In other words substances from animal‘s organ must be similar to that of yours and for this reason the first can be good food even medicine for your healt ...

Share The name is Desmarais.
J.E.Overington 2019-5-20 04:37
In Canada, we are nostalgic for an era in our past, in the 1700s to early 1800s, before pavement. We had snowball fights in the forests while gathering sap for maple syrup. We fished with a line, not a net. We made small towns. Well, maybe Four Bee, Four Boo and Four Baa, the futuristic cities imagined by prolific author Tanith Lee in Drinking Sapphire Wine can give us the inspiration and the hope we need. In Europe, the name is Rothschild. In America, well, the name people k ...

SEARU 2019-5-12 21:57
I know a man who sometimes rides motorcycle along the frontier line of China on holidays! “It is risky for you! There are too many uncertainties those may happen at any time! For an example:One of your tyres might be poked by a nail on the road! Then how will you deal with the problem by yourself without professionals? ” I asked him. The boss-level traveller replied:“I have treated the two tyres with special chemical liquid which can instantly repair the rubber once it being hurt ...
