Share Two Systems, Two Standards?
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 ...

A long time ago in a land far, far, far away, so far away that I wonder whether it was a reverie, I used to watch the good society offline like on TV, never allowed in because of someone I had to care for... "Do it all, do it all, do it all alone for everyone, do it all for free, do it all alone..." And I learned to talk to the caretakers of that good society in English so criminal anglophones could not understand. I learned to debate instead of fight. I trusted policies, processes, and I ...

Share 31 May is No Smoke Day
2019-5-28 04:44
31 May is World No Tobacco Day, thanks to the World Health Organization. If you could ask someone close to you to stop smoking, who would you ask? How would you say it? Tobacco is dangerous. On World No Tobacco Day, the WHO presents special awards to organizations or people who have made great efforts to get people, especially children, to stop smoking. Does winning a prize motivate you to ask your neighbourhood to stop smoking? In 2008 the WHO called ...

Share If you could be famous, what would you be famous for?
2019-1-17 01:11
Do you want to be an actor, a singer or a model? Would you rather be a politician, a banker, or maybe an entrepreneur? Which is more important to you: being known for your beauty or being known for your mind? Are you more interested in being known for something generous you did for an important interest group such as lifting people out of poverty, helping refugees, solving a water shortage crisis, solving an energy shortage crisis, or creating a healthcare or technology breakthrough t ...

Share Shenzhen Airport
2015-3-11 11:27
I really enjoy being in Shenzhen Airport. The first time I was in Shenzhen Airport with enough time to relax, I felt captivated by this pretty pattern in the floor, The hexagonal lights with straighedge shadows are an effect from the holes in the ceiling reflected in the floor. So one day, I decided to spend very much of a day in the airport walking around, thinking about space, and taking photos. Here is the view from Starbucks. Notice we see light from the ...

Share Introducing Beijing, China -- a seldom observed side.
2014-6-13 17:30
A bridge in the Summer Palace, Thousands of years ago, some bankers felt confused by the difference between the Empty Set and Zero since both were relatively new ideas and it was unclear which one to put into arithmetic in the future. Arithmetic was being attempted without Zero and without the Empty Set, whence the global system error being corrected in the globally integrated banking system modulated in English through newspaper and government reports. I teach English in Beijing, Ch ...

  • Happy birthday to you! (or not :-) ) 2019-7-4 00:07
