琼瑶诉于正案开庭“能抄的全都抄了” (2014.12.06 in Beijing) and on December 15, 百名编剧声援诉于正 捍卫尊严竟如此团结?
Why the screenwriters are so united in this letigation? Becasue out of their 切身利益 own interests. Interlectural property is a new concept to the Chinese and they couldn’t afford it back 10 or 20’years ago. Now they could so these screenwriters (authors …) are demanding respect and protecting their products. Give China some time she’ll catch up, if not surfpassing it.

声明内文:

  作为编剧,我们关注琼瑶女士起诉编剧于正的侵权案,此时,不分海峡这边还是海峡那边,我们都是中文写作者,我们在道义上支持琼瑶依法维权的主张,谴责一切抄袭、剽窃、非法改变别人作品的行为,呼吁保护原创,停止侵权,维护职业尊严。我们拭目以待法律对此做出公正的判决。

I bet many these signees were copy cats before themselves.

Why do I do this?

Published by under View from Bottom

Today the Washington Post reported China admits it also tortures, days after slamming US ‘hypocrisy’, of a teenager in Hohhot being executed for rape he didn’t commit. I’ve read this in Chinese last month. I didn’t feel compel to write because I was not sure how true it was – giving some many errors and untrue statements/articles are out there, in China. It’s very sad.

An able lady from Shandong

Published by under View from Bottom

This video shows a lady In Shandong province born without two arms who goes about her life as an able person. During the 9 minutes long video, she demonstrates how she functions daily, that includes picking crabs, opens door, wash her face, even making embroidery. She brought up three children.

  • 2:35, picking the string beans, cooking a meal
  • 4:28, .. @ 4:36 her mom wanted to throw her away, into the ocean. Dad objected saying to keep her as a dog 小花狗, 我才活到今天
  • 5:53, making pancake, and dumplings
  • 6:30, about her marriage to Mr. Li
  • 7:28 noodle work  穿针引线   绣花
  • 8:10 writes a letter

I’ve heard a similar story told by my card game partner who’s from Fuzhou. When she was born, due to hardship, her mother wanted to throw her away too and actually did. It’s her father who took her back, twice.

H Mart

Published by under View from Bottom

Why can’t the Chinese grocery stores sell better quality food and present them nicely like the Koreans do? I just don’t get it. This is the first time I found they’re selling the hot pot meat the Chinese way – 4th picture below. (also posted on Yelp.)

image image image image

The Korean stores usually cost more with better quality. However, this time the mushrooms were terrible. The root of king mushroom was rotten – it’s me who never check. I decided to return – heeding my friends’ urging to return the bad grocery, reminding the store to do better.

image image image

Because of the root, I checked the other pack of oyster mushroom and saw white fuzz at the root. Since I’ve never seen it before, I returned it as well. At the store, the cashier’s normal humble friendly manner was gone, in place was cold and unpleasant. She asked for my credit, I (kind of) told her that I didn’t bring it with me. She pointed to the receipt, curtly said,

“I can’t refund you cash.”

Waldbaums does it: once I purchased a loaf of bread that’s mold – me again. When I took it back on my next trip there, the cashier graciously took it and apologized.

She apologized!!

I didn’t have the recipt any more and told her it was purchased on my credit card; she refunded me cash. So I knew it could be done.

I hope the Asians realize that we’re, in fact doing them a favor. The $5.07, totally not worth my time. H Mark’s quality has been going downhill. A few years ago, I never had such problem.

It’s sad.

Three stories:

  1. Infrastructures in USA: I wondered all the time, where is our high speed trains? AT LEAST, Boston-New York-Washington DC should have one!!!
  2. Russia’s Chernobyl. The Russians called it 26, as we call the September 11 – 911.
  3. divers in Palau: Ahead of Unbroken movie, this piece is very emotional. A group of people, on their own, trying to locate the lost Americans during WWII, over the past 20 some years. One grandson found his grandfather under the sea .. It’s powerful.

I got a ticket while inside of the car

Published by under View from Bottom

image
Two Fridays ago, my husband parked in a handicap space while going to get a direction (google map didn’t show where the movie theater is in the mall) at Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga/Buffalo. I was in the passenger seat, with my crutches – I sprained my left ankle. A skinny and tall cop with dark blond hair came by. I rolled down my window and explained to him. He pointed behind and told me that theater was that way. Then walked away. I called my husband immediately to tell him where the theater was but he didn’t pick it up – no reception.
It was 6pm in the evening. Five minutes later, I found a strong light behind my car and turned around. The same cop wrote me a ticket, when he handed me the ticket, he said,
“I don’t like to be lied to.”
“I’m not lying.” I was very upset.
“How long does it take to get a direction?” He threw the ticked into my car and left.
I did not feel being discriminated often in USA but this time I did.
My husband got the direction to the movie theater and thinking I was in the car, with sprained ankle, parking on the handicap spot for a few minutes was ok, so he went to purchase the tickets (inside the mall, a block away from the mall entrance) instead of coming back to move the car.
I could have moved the car when he first approached me.
Although I don’t have handicap designation but I was on crutches, thought could use the spot for a few minutes. Was it too much to ask?

An incident in the hotel in following night ..

University at Buffalo has a huge Asian population. The lightening speed that he came back to issue me a ticket made me feeling he has some kind of grudge (again Asian dare I say), perhaps? We just drove 7 hours to see our child and we were anxious to see him, pick him up for dinner. We would not have parked there long.

La Crema Chardonnay 2009 is really good

The 2009 vintage of Sonoma Coast Chardonnay opens with an intriguing interplay of lively citrus and subtle toasted oak, laced with just a kiss of butterscotch. The palate is round and nutty, with flavors of yellow apple and orange adding lushness, while well-balanced acidity creates a lovely vibrancy. Hints of vanilla and caramel add richness and texture to a long, fresh finish.

.
My head is spinning, not from the alcohol but from the adjectives. But this white wine, Chardonnay is really good.

Putin in China

看看人家“普京”朋友圈里的照片!学着点!

I’m really bewildered by the fervor Chinese has with Putin. In this post, pix #38 (pix 1)  “38. 探险,考古遗址。- Adventure, archaeological sites“. LOL omg. It happens, I gleamed an article years ago and it talked about his staged water hunt. I googled it: Putin staged seaside treasure hunt (pix 2) and Putin staged treasure hunt (pix 3). See something familiar? Huff Post: Putin’s Treasure Dive Find Was Staged: Spokesman in 2011 (pix 4). Does the Russian also employ 5 cents to write for them? Do you think the American presidents out to look east to learn how to spend their free time? LOL. The Russians do look like they just climb down from the trees.

I won’t mind if you want to romanticize someone (only because he stands up to USA? .. oh give me a break ..) but take the fabrication to fool yourself is entirely different matter. It’s sickening.

I’ve talked about his naked pix back in 2008 (#17/18 here ..), that’s staged probably too. He doesn’t really have a torso that is worth looking at, seriously. Please put some cloth on, don’t abuse my eyes.

Here he sings

Children left behind 留守儿童

China’s rise in the recent decades has produced a group that’s large enough to have a term coined for them: Children Left Behind. I suppose that I was one of them a generation or two ago. What differs mine with this one is the underline circumstance: mine was passive and the current one is active, made possibly by economic mobility.

Nainai had two maids in the early 1980s, the last few years of her life in Beijing. First was a young girl in her late teen or early twenty,  from Anhui Province, 1000 km (645 miles) south of Beijing. I had met her twice on my visits. One day she stole my Yeye’s trouser. When caught, she told them that’s for her boyfriend.

“Do you have a boyfriend?” Nainai asked her.

“No I don’t now but I will.” She replied without a blink.

Never mind Yeye was 80 years old. Anhui was one of the poorest provinces in China and for a while, young women from Anhui filled that market niche in the capital. Soon the married mothers found their way out of poverty too. They were like the Filipinas in Hong Kong. The second one was a young mother. She followed her fellow villagers footstep and found way to my home, being employed by Nainai. Her toddler son was being cared for by her in-laws. Her husband went to Shenzhen and worked in a garment factory.

These two women were not unique. China’s rise in the recent decades produces unprecedented economical achievement. The work force that enabled this prosperity had made trade that, in some corner applauded as sacrifice for a better future while in the other, called swift shop labor. Their children, many were left in the village (of course some were living with them in the new city) they are large enough of a force to have a name coined for them: Children left behind 留守儿童. This isn’t a phenomenal unique only in China but a world wide trend when economic mobility become a reality.

There is a subclass in China, Children Left Behind. Their parents went to elsewhere to work to support the rise of China and left them with grandparents and relatives. I must be the first one.

 

在中国农村有这样一个群体:他们的父母为了生计外出打工,为国家经济发展和社会稳定作贡献,但是作为子女的他们却被留在了农村家里,一年难得跟父母见次面。同样在东至也有这么一批儿童,他们的父母双双在外奔波,生理和心理正在成长需要父疼母爱的他们集中起来就变成了一个特殊的弱势群体———留守儿童。根据权威调查,中国农村目前“留守儿童”数量超过了5800万人。57.2%的留守儿童是父母一方外出,42.8%的留守儿童是父母同时外出。留守儿童中的79.7%由爷爷、奶奶或外公、外婆抚养,13%的孩子被托付给亲戚、朋友,7.3%为不确定或无人监护。
调查显示,由于父母均外出打工,与留守儿童聚少离多,远远不能尽其作为监护人的义务。而占绝对大比例的隔代教育又有诸多不尽人意之处,这种状况容易导致留守儿童“亲情饥渴”,心理健康、性格等方面出现偏差,学习受到影响。主要表现在内心封闭、情感冷漠、自卑懦弱、行为孤僻、缺乏爱心和交流的主动性,还有的脾气暴躁、冲动易怒,常常将无端小事升级为打架斗殴。由于“留守儿童”特殊的生活和教育环境,由此引发的生活、教育、情感、心理等一系列问题日益凸显。
随着农村外出务工人员的增多,农村 “留守儿童”问题已成为当前基础教育的一个重要问题。“留守儿童”缺少父母的爱,在对他们的管教上很容易出现“三多”和“三缺”问题:隔代监护多溺爱、寄养监护多偏爱、无人监护多失爱;生活上缺人照应、行为上缺人管教、学习上缺人辅导。“留守儿童”问题成了为基础教育和社会存在的一个大问题。
以上分析尽管不尽全面,但是足以引起社会、家庭、学校的重视。就有这样一个组织走进了“留守儿童”这个弱势群体,她就是“东至爱心联盟”。“留守儿童”问题深深地牵动着东至爱心联盟的心。东至爱心联盟以发扬人道主义精神和保护人的生命和健康为宗旨,以最易受损集体为服务对象,开展各种相关志愿活动。为了解决“留守儿童”存在的问题,东至爱心联盟做了大量的工作,派遣相关人员深入其中了解实际情况,调查这些孩子问题的存在以及策划解决问题的相关办法。东至爱心联盟从多方面入手,积极展开相关活动,尽最大努力帮助这些孩子。东至爱心联盟积极组织青年志愿者与“留守儿童”开展结对帮扶活动,让他们感受新时代的气息以及城市文化和城市生活;开展儿童趣味运动会以及儿童比赛活动,让孩子们体味童年的快乐,享受生活的美好;到儿童们的家里送温暖,让他们体味爱的含义,培养孩子们的动手能力等等相关活动。
2014年11月10日,东至人网-爱心联盟公益组织自发组织的20多家商家,与东至县宣传部、东至电视台携手为东至县张溪镇土桥小学344名学生送去书包、铅笔和练习本等学习用品。让这些父母不在身边的小朋友同样感受到来自全社会的温暖。同时希望更多有社会责任感的企业,为社会弱势群体提供更多帮助,让他们感受到来自全社会对他们的帮助与支持,共建和谐友爱的新社会!

创作长卷,字体不宜过大,亦不能太小,无论卷与轴的表现形式都需要近距离观赏,所以要求笔墨精妙、笔力得当。书写长卷要有一泻千里、气韵连贯的表现力,笔势的连贯不仅表现在一字一行,还要有整段贯通一气呵成的感受。
作者创作《兵团知青三字经》用以纪念我们逝去的青春。每字每句,每笔每划,都渗透着两位作者对往事对青春的回忆和思考。

Traveling While Arab

Alaa Al Aswany encounters problem traveling because he’s an Arab.
My comment:

Maybe Mr Aswany should write a best seller demonstrate to the bad Muslims how the good Muslims are suffering for their deed?
His mentioning of Abu Ghraib prison, made me think back to the 9/11, many Americans, politicians or not, immediately rallying support/protection for the good Muslims in this country. Pardon me, please, there isn’t a comparison to be made. I wholeheartedly agree prejudice or discrimination have no place in our world. But, it is what it is. I got mistreated in Munich, a blonde waitress refused to serve us. Hopefully I can write a book about it … don’t give Germany a bad name.
