Share 寸 symbols ‘short’ or ‘small’
SEARU 2019-9-18 09:45
时 means ‘time’. Its 日 is ‘the Sun’ but here that shouldd represent ‘one day’. 寸 shows ‘one short period' of the 24 hours per day. Another example is 辱(To say bad things about someone.). Its top is 辰 that was a giant dinosaur in the primary stage of the Earth. 寸 is so tiny that looks like ‘a worm’.How can you devalue a powerful animal as a weak worm?Obviously you are calling someone names!

Share The milk from the mainland to Hongkong
SEARU 2019-9-7 21:54
No! You are not familiar with the true stories taking place between Hong-kong and mainland in the past decades! We had had ‘three flying trains’ which transporting living pigs and fresh vegetables from the inner land to the ‘island’. Aboard the train the railway workers fed the animals carefully to make sure the creatures would be still healthy enough before being killed in the market; In the vegetable carts some workers had to stand closed to ice pieces in order to keep the plants fr ...

Share To learn from others on thinking efficiency
SEARU 2019-8-27 10:06
Quarreling is nothing but waste of time for reader friends! We had better focus more energy on ‘standard’ textbooks! I wish Chinese top-level scholars should tell literature or science stories in brief text that is an issue on the working style. We ought to think, speak and write in simple way that is easy for children to accept your concept! If there were enough videos on what had been going on in class in the ancient times, modern educators would laugh at our ancestors whose w ...

Share Schooling should train students to freely use words in easy way
SEARU 2019-8-26 18:18
Thanks for your remarking on the level of my English! I can't help laughing for it! You may think in this way: We Chinese are taught to be modest before others. So it is unfit for me if I claim how well I do on the foreign language! My success(if so) on bloging tells me I have benefit a lot from the dictionary that language expert has offered me too much power on how to freely use words to express myself! I wish my writing go like the special english program from the Voice of America with ...

Share Play with fish
SEARU 2019-8-25 08:15
In the Dongying City I walked along the bank of the river, the plastic-rubber path led me to a 'under-water-surface‘ passage where through the glass-made side-wall you could see fish swimming before you. The distance was so short that my grandson could not help trying to touch the lovely creature although it was impossible! It is amazing to see such a wonderful project!

Share Harsh words maybe good medicine
SEARU 2019-8-12 07:13
Confucius was one great educator whose teaching has deeply influenced Chinese society for so long! His success shows that a teacher should have his own theory on teaching who can encourage students to do independent thinking by themselves! Sometimes Searu feels sorry for Chinese kids who are asked to recite Confucian poems without one-word-changing! They swallow down the whole text as recorder does without personal analysis. Here I have to say that most of our schooling goes in a stupid wa ...

Share Special weather condition
SEARU 2019-8-11 18:07
Now I am in the Dongying City of Shandong Province. The heavy rain and hard wind have lasted for more than 24 hours. The whole city is flooding with most of the citizens have to stay at home even in daytime. Through the window I can see few cars still struggling on the roads like boats with half of the wheels in water! On the Wechat someone joked in this way: It is funny to drive car on the river-like road, the fact proves one truth that Dongying is famous for her rich resource on water!

Share Let education managed by real educators
SEARU 2019-8-11 14:44
Parents and teachers do education jobs in different ways around the world. We chinese teach kids in low efficiency who need to sharpen the edge of working-knife. This needs a revolutionary change overall on the education system. It reminds former Premier Wen's words:“Those good teachers should been elected as headmasters in middle schools and let all schools run by real educators!" At present the administrative officials in schools act as those in the agriculture field in 1970s who l ...

Share Why 别 means ‘farewell’
SEARU 2019-8-7 10:19
离 reminds me its ‘brother’ who is ‘别’(bie). The latter has three components as the following: 口 is ‘mouth’ but here that represents ‘a person’; 力 is a simple picture of human body with arms and two strong legs. So the left part of 别 is two people who have close relationship with the bottom one tries to raise up the top one! The right of 别 is a vertical knife which is a changed form of 刀(something like sword). When you put 口, 力 and 刀 together, or you wave a ‘ ...

Share How does 离 mean ‘leave’
SEARU 2019-8-6 21:05
The structure of the word 离 appears strange even for native Chinese students who had(have) to swallow it as whole without reasonable analysis! Now let‘s have a close look! I think the first part should be ‘文’ that symbols ‘a thin scholar’ or ‘man’: In fact it is a simple form of human body with the head, the shoulder plus two leg with thin waist. The second component of the character is as same as the bottom of 画 which should represent ...
