here again Chinese tourist

Not again! Chinese passengers in scuffle on flight to HK

Just days after an incident where a ‪#‎Chinese‬ passenger onboard a ‪#‎Thai‬ AirAsia flight assaulted a crew member, it seems that there has been another violent act involving Chinese passengers onboard an aircraft.

Apparently a scuffle broke out between passengers onboard flight CA433 from Chongqing to ‪#‎HongKong‬ on Wednesday.

It started as a simple quarrel after two female passengers complained that a child sitting behind them was making far too much noise. The child’s family argued that the ladies had pushed their seatbacks far too much and that was causing the child discomfort.

According to a report in the Chongqing Morning Post, the argument continued to escalate to the point that the crew even considered turning the plane around.

However, fortunately for the rest of the passengers, the flight made its way to Hong Kong safely, where the police began an investigation as soon as the flight landed.

For obvious reasons, the story has created quite a stir on social media in China. Here are some of the comments being shared on Sina Weibo, China’s largest social media platform.

“People who can’t control their kids…VS… people without any empathy.” @beijingbianjian

“Please tell the parents who can’t stop their kids from crying and shouting in public places not to take their kids outside… Morality is based on controlling your own business first.” @letianxiaoxiongbinggan

“I seriously suggest that there should be a blacklist for these passengers, and a system of personal credits. People who do not obey public order and affect others should be punished accordingly. ” @zuojiajianyishengwangli

癌細胞如何變回正常的細胞



癌症的主因:

超級中毒+組織缺氧+憂傷 就超級中毒而言,例如吃入含重金屬食品,因為重金屬太重,血液搬不動,就留在組織中,而細胞遇到入侵的外來物,就會扭曲地團團圍住而形成腫瘤癌症!

癌細胞就是扭扭曲曲皺皺縮縮的細胞,藉由:

1.樂觀:例如和志同道合登山隊登山大家談天說地嘻嘻哈哈。

2.補氧:登山會喘氣且滿身流汗乃最佳的補氧及排毒運動,藉由灌氧,皺縮的細胞癌可像氣球打氧一樣,膨脹回來,成為正常細胞。

3.偏素食:五穀雜糧加蔬菜可改成鹼性體質及排毒。即可將癌細胞變回成正常圓潤的細胞!


癌症(Cancer)正如其拉丁字頭「蟹」(Cancri)的意思所指,稍不注意,便不聲不響、致人於死地橫行。

一生中每四個人就有一個人可能得癌,過去十年,三十至五十九歲的壯年得癌人數成長81%,但40%的癌症是可以預防的。

然而在第三期的癌症之後,如從前法務部長陳定南、舞蹈家羅曼菲、王文洋的妻子陳靜文、電影導演楊德昌、到鴻海准董事長郭台成,一顆顆舞台上的明星,在正要大放光芒時,因癌倒下。

其實每人每天均會產生七八千個癌細胞,尤其在焦慮、憤怒及壓力下,癌細胞大增,放在人體內某部位的潘朵拉盒中。

若在愉快的心情下,以氧氣灌滿皺縮的癌細胞使之膨脹,多吃抗癌食物即可天天修護皺皺的癌細胞變回成正常圓潤的細胞,在第三期的癌症之前,均能康復。


A.抗癌食物:


  • 檸檬(破壞12種癌細胞:包括結腸癌、乳腺癌、前列腺癌、肺癌和胰腺癌…) 
  • 地瓜(排毒最佳) 
  • 大蒜(治胃癌) 
  • 黃豆(治子宮頸癌) 
  • 金針菰(治子宮頸癌) 
  • 菜花(治胰腺癌) 
  • 菠菜(治肺癌) 
  • 茭白(治腸癌) 
  • 海帶(治乳腺癌) 
  • 蘆筍(治皮膚癌) 
  • 花椰菜(治膀胱癌) 
  • 毛豆(治乳癌) 
  • 蔓越莓(治乳癌) 
  • 開心果(防肺癌) 
  • 熟番茄(治前列腺癌) 
  • 蘑菇(治肝癌,但含重金屬傷腎,每月最多可以吃200g) 
  • 甜菜根、胡蘿蔔、優格、蘋果、綠藻、葡萄、香蕉、奇異果、鳳梨、草莓、綠茶、十穀米(治直腸癌:糙米、黑糯米、小米、小麥、蕎麥、芡實、燕麥、蓮子、麥片和紅薏仁)、白芝麻、亞麻子、老薑、枸杞、玉米、杏仁、黑芝麻、南瓜子。


請大家多吃含有這些有效成份的食物,讓身體內蠢蠢欲動的癌細胞多多睡覺: 

  1. 咖哩(抗癌成份是..薑黃素) 
  2. 辣椒(抗癌成份是..辣椒素) 
  3. 姜(抗癌成份是..姜油) 
  4. 綠茶(抗癌成份是..兒茶素) 
  5. 大豆(抗癌成份是..異黃酮) 
  6. 蕃茄(抗癌成份是..茄紅素) 
  7. 葡萄(抗癌成份是..白黎蘆醇) 
  8. 大蒜(抗癌成份是..硫化物) 

 B.以氧氣灌滿

人坐在椅子上時,每次呼吸進的空氣才半公升,只用了肺臟的十二分之一,李豐說,「就像一個人有一棟十二個房間的房子,可是每天忙碌出外工作,回到家裡來,就只用到卧室。」 

要用到肺臟的每一個部分(提供充分的氧氣),唯一的方法就是在空氣好的地方勤加運動喘氣(例如爬山)。 


C.愉快的心情:

前台大醫學院博士班第一名畢業的台大名醫,在用核磁共振掃描器檢查完他的病人後,他看機器還是開着,於是對準自己的肝臟來順便替自己做個掃描,結果發現他的肝臟中生有一個腫瘤,於是在驚嚇之餘很自然的按照西醫的一般程序做切片與其他化療等,結果無法心情放輕鬆,只活三個月,他就過逝了。

 罹患3期肺癌的吳永志醫師採用生機飲食(吃90%全生和10%煮熟的食物),他每天喝6大杯以蕃茄、胡蘿蔔、紅色甜菜根為主打成的500cc.蔬果汁,以大量蔬果類為主食,可以強化免疫系統,1天排便3次,改變飲食及生活作息才半年,腫瘤即消失無蹤。 

吳永志說,以每分鐘3萬轉以上的果汁機打汁即可將蔬果的纖維和種子裡所含有植物生化素牽釋出,可抗氧化、消除自由基。 

他每天早上喝兩杯蔬果汁當早餐,午餐前一小時再喝一杯,中午則吃蕃茄、胡蘿蔔、苜蓿芽等作蔬菜沙拉。 

前行政院大陸委員會主委蘇起透露,一九九一年健檢時發現八公分大的肝癌,也是由他的主播夫人陳月卿用每分鐘3萬轉以上的果汁機打出植物生化素,神奇地治好蘇起的肝癌。 

台大病理科醫生李豐女士罹患過淋巴癌。同病的,或輾轉病榻,或早死了;她卻能夠好好地活着。 

她的秘訣就是:她天天爬山(登山喘氣是最佳的補氧運動)及讀佛經-其意義在於不要煩惱。 

反之,像我的好友在精神上遭受重大打擊後,就患了淋巴腺癌,在台大醫院折磨了生命最後的11個月,非常不幸! 

她有兩段名言:「人在高興時,細胞很圓潤,就像十八歲的年輕人;人在生氣時,細胞就像八十歲的老頭,皺皺縮縮的!」 

(癌細胞就是扭扭曲曲皺皺縮縮的,五穀雜糧加蔬菜、運動(氧)加樂觀,即可將癌細胞回成正常圓潤的細胞)。 

而發生在英國倫敦的一對夫妻,兩人同時去做年度體檢,太太被告知得到乳癌,壽命只有一年,先生被告知得到前列腺癌,同時有三條心臟主動脈血管阻塞了,壽命也只剩下一年。 

二人經過討論後決定什麼都不做,再也不要聽到西醫說什麼病了,他們在一張白紙上寫下在這一年中他們將完全的五十件事,於是他們賣掉僅有的住家,拿了錢去做環遊世界的旅行。 

因為這是他們第一件想要做的事,於是高興的起程,經過半年的各地旅遊後又再回到倫敦後因為身體感覺很好,於是再回到同一位醫師那去檢查,結果醫師驚訝的發現二人的癌症已經消失了,同時丈夫的動脈血管阻塞也好了,這個結果讓醫師都無法明了為什麼會這樣呢! 

前中華開發金控董事長陳敏薰,在場演講中首度透露生活秘辛。陳敏薰說,多年前莫名其妙生了一場病,是一種癌症,連學醫的媽媽都認為絕望了,一剎那什麼都帶不走,改變了她的一生,讓她體會到簡單生活的可貴。

你只需要「夥伴」,而不需要家人朋友了嗎?加入直銷前,請先想想這五件事

那天幾個朋友在Line上面收到一個訊息,是直銷的銷售訊息。因為發送的是大家的共同朋友,所以大家群情激憤,開始賭爛直銷。之前分享過〈我知道你不喜歡直銷 但這五件事你都做到了嗎?〉,很多人未看先罵,你就知道直銷在大家心中印象多差。

我認真的覺得,直銷這個產業真的是在台灣壞了,不過在賭爛的同時,也可以來拆解一下直銷告訴你的事情,想想為什麼大家這麼賭爛,但還是有很多人前仆後繼。


一、不斷的話術

初入直銷的人,你會遇到你的上線跟你說很多的話術。包含推銷的,邀請伙伴加入的,甚至家人朋友提出質疑時,我想你會有很多反駁的話術。但是我必須提醒你的第一點就是,當你在跟你的客戶爭輸贏的時候,我實在不了解你會怎麼樣銷售你的產品?而如果每一個不認同你的人,你都用一套說詞來反駁的時候,我想所有的人都會搖搖頭。你當然會非常生氣,甚至覺得對方不可理喻。

但是你要想想,你不像我可以跟大家筆戰,因為筆戰可以是吸引讀者的方式,但是當你和你的客戶都在話術來,話術去,人和人的交流只剩下OPP(直銷創業說明會)的時候,你失去了人跟人的溫度,你的所有訊息都是帶有包裝和面具的,當變成這樣的時候,你覺得你講贏你的客戶了,講贏到你的家人朋友懶的反駁了,這是你要目的嗎?


更多時候,很多人會傳一段文字配上幾張圖,因為這是上線跟你說的,所謂很棒的銷售方法。但你知道每一個朋友看到都只有度濫嗎?因為你沒有問候,甚至也不管別人熟不熟。覺得這樣的話術很棒嗎?其實這只不過是亂槍打鳥。連基本的問候和關心都沒有,難道這樣別人就會購買嗎?不會,因為人跟人相處需要的是「溫度」,而不是「話術」。

二、你的夢想,只剩下寶石了嗎?

而你在面試工作的時候,應該不太會有面試官問你夢想。但在直銷的這個世界,每一個人都會讓你思考未來的生活,想不想早點退休,達成你夢想中的生活。天啊,這個根本打到了所有人的需求,誰不想躺著賺錢,不想開名車,到各地旅遊,成為別人羨慕的對象?

但我非常認真的說,你的夢想並不需要被別人引導,也不是只有直銷業能夠實現你的夢想。你要想的是你對這個產品了不了解,有沒有興趣,夢想是讓你達成生命中的一個成就,但絕對不是當飯吃,更不是只要你有夢想,相信這個夢想就什麼都不用管,全宇宙都會幫你,你就成功了。

就算付出和回報也許不成正比,但是絕對有相關。夢想不但不能當飯吃,更不是你盈利的包裝。他只能驅使你往前走,直到達到目標。絕對不是把只夢想放在嘴邊就能實現,就算是你看到的那些在表揚大會的寶石們,他們也一定付出了非常多的努力。有夢想很重要,但是你願意為你的夢想付出多少努力,是更重要的事情。

三、你只需要「夥伴」,而不需要家人朋友了嗎?

直銷有團隊,也鼓勵你創造出你的團隊,你才有更多的人脈和收入。但是很多人進入直銷之後遭到身邊的朋友反對,而這些夥伴是怎麼告訴你的?其他的人都是庸才,只有你選擇了成功?還是說爸媽不懂這個趨勢,你不要理他們?當然,你的夥伴們會一直鼓勵你,稱讚你甚至吹捧你。而其他的人似乎都不懂你,都要擋你的財路,是這樣嗎?

無論是把你的朋友帶進公司做ABC T-UP(註)的時候,或是和你的朋友和親人聊產品話題的時候,常常被人家罵,甚至被說洗腦,覺得自己好心被雷親嗎?並不是別人要討厭你,而是你的人生也許只剩下產品。當每個人跟你聊天沒兩句你就提到產品,那麼請問誰會想要跟你繼續聊下去嗎?

我必須要很認真的說,無論做什麼事情,你都不可能跟你原有的生活斷開連結。而也不代表你選擇了一條成功的路,就必須告訴自己成功的道路是孤獨的,只有夥伴會給你支持。我想台灣環境做直銷不被賭爛很難,但是總會有一些理性的人,但如果你的朋友家人完全不理你,我想是你用了錯誤的方法,而不是他們不諒解。

四、我們都在做善事

有很多的直銷商都投入慈善,一來希望扭轉壞印象,二來是希望可以藉由這樣的方式,能夠帶動更多的客戶和使用者。慈善很棒,但是最害怕的就是很多人覺得公司有在做公益,他就是一個公益的企業,你做的就是善事,這是完全錯誤的。公益是一種選擇,更並不代表你可以用你的善意來強迫別人。

我遇到的一個不熟的人告訴我,我的身體出了問題,接著推薦給我非常多的產品(當然,他應該不知道我也曾經在直銷產業學習過),並且告訴我這樣可以明顯改善。我婉拒了他,我說非常感謝他,但是我沒有需要。接著他一直說我的體指超標,體質一定出了問題,一定需要改變,不然我會越來越胖,一直胖下去。

其實我完全感覺到他的善意,但是這樣的善意不斷重複我很胖或是我體脂很高這件事情,誰也不會開心。最後他希望我可以認購一個善心的產品給弱勢,而我婉拒了他。但他卻告訴我我衣食無缺,卻不願意把這份愛分享給別人,像他認購了兩套,然後…(略)

請問,你感受到的是你認養可以積陰德,還是覺得煩?

五、每個人都想要財務自由

我想《富爸爸,窮爸爸》應該可以說是直銷界的聖經,很多人看完之後都在心裡吶喊我要贏回我的人生,拿回主控權,創造被動收入,達到財務自由。你做一個發明也可以有版權的被動收入,你經營一個網站也可以有廣告的被動收入,當然直銷也可以,但這不是你什麼事情都不做就可以賺錢。所以你必須要先非常辛苦,接著享受你先前付出的成果,直銷也是一樣的,對吧?所以你後半輩子躺著賺錢的前提,可能是你要在前半輩子跪著賺錢。

所以你並不是完全不用付出,我認為的財務自由是你的生活和工作已經結合,你並不覺得工作很辛苦,而也能從中獲得成就。你在工作的同時也能夠享受你的生活。當然,這不是每一個人都能夠達到的境界,但我想表達的是天底下沒有不勞而獲這種事情,而是你不是每天為了錢而煩惱,為了需要工作而痛苦。你對於你的工作充滿熱情,進而達到當中的極致,你也樂在其中,我認為這才是財務自由,

每一個產業都要賺錢,要營利,這都是很正常的。但當你用很多的包裝層層包住這個企圖(重點是還包得很劣質),你絕對會失去你所謂的人脈。甚至當你都相信你做的所有事情都是在做善事,而不是營利。這樣的人非常可怕,因為他將這些行為合理化了,真心的相信他做的每一件事情都是善事,也就是所謂的洗腦。

我覺得所謂的經營不是把東西賣出去,而是把握每一個機會,讓每一個跟你談業務的人都很愉快。不管有沒有交易,至少人家感受到誠意,就算他沒有需求,他也會介紹人給你。而他如果以後有需求,他也會來跟你購買。不是當一個每天講著夢想和空話,經營自己偽善假象的人。


註:ABC T-up

A是Adivsor專家的意思,可能是上線,或是組織裡較厲害的人。
B可以說是Bridge(橋梁)的意思,也就是直銷人。
C是Customer(客戶),也就是要來聽的人,也就是被直銷人帶來的人。

所以階層是這樣的,A跟B認識,B跟C認識。目的是要讓C進入組織,做法是B要促成A跟C認識,讓C對於A有好感甚至崇拜,藉由這樣的方式讓C進入組織。(了解了吧,所以很多時候有朋友要帶你認識一個很威的朋友,或是什麼很厲害的老師,你就該有一些警覺心了。)

首先B要先蒐集C的所有資料,並且告訴A有關於C的一切資料,讓A能夠在第一印象就讓C有好感。接著B告訴C,我認識一個人A,這人尊爵不凡,並且跟C有某某共同嗜好,你們一定很聊得來。

然後讓他們見面,因為C已經從B這得到A的消息,所以C可能就覺得A很威,或是覺得A非常有親切感。因為A又先理解C的喜好個性等等,當然相談甚歡,在途中B也可以拋一些C有興趣的話題出來,當然也是演練過的。

至於T-up是放高爾夫球的T字釘,我把他解釋為槓桿,讓你可以「借力」。在這邊就是B一直稱讚A(製造C對A好感),然後一直稱讚C(製造C的虛榮心),所以在這個場合前先T-UP A,讓C覺得A很棒,接著把C介紹給A,在這個當下T-UP C,讓C覺得原來自己很棒,最後這個區間繼續T up 直到A與C達到完全聯結的目的。

《Angry Birds》裁員 110 人!


"一度風行全世界" 並帶起手機遊戲市場的《Angry Birds》,面對百花齊放的手遊對手,經營十分困難,《Angry Birds》的開發商芬蘭公司Rovio,雖然把《Angry Birds》轉化成不同的商品又與其他公司進行Crossover,不過 2013 年利潤減少達五成,近日決定裁員110人,並關閉位於 Tampere 市的遊戲開發單位,把業務集中在 Espoo 市的總部,曾經是每人手機上必玩必裝的遊戲,不足數載就變成這樣,實在有點唏噓。

Somehow i'm not surprise, I never think its a good game at all, now I'm wondering when they are going to close down? Oh... and "Fappy Bird"?

Meantime, I'm waiting for the "Clash of Clan" and "Pirate King" to recession and close down... but when?

Who are Chinese Malaysians really? – T.K.Chua

Chinese Malaysians are now being characterised in many ways. We are both ugly capitalists and communists. We are money worshippers and evangelical Christians. We are heartless people but at the same time we are accused of indulging in too much social and political activity.

We are chauvinistic Chinese school supporters. We have no respect for other races and religions. We are depraved people indulging in immoral and illegal business activities. We are unpatriotic and unwilling to get involved in public service. In a nut shell, we are trouble, trouble and trouble.

I think the accusers are very confused and stupid people. They do not know how to look at the Chinese as a community and as an individual. They do not know the difference between exceptions and generalisations. But I guess they intentionally stereotype the Chinese to create hatred and to galvanise support for their own political survival.

If some Chinese are selfish, immoral, heartless, ugly capitalists, communists, chauvinistic, evangelical, and greedy, I too can find people from other races and religions having the same attributes.

The accusers must make up their minds. How could the Chinese be capitalists and communists at the same time? How could the Chinese be evangelical Christians while at the same time indulge in illegal and immoral activities?

How could the Chinese be accused of proselytising to the Muslims when most of them are money lovers? How could the Chinese be accused of being chauvinistic supporters of Chinese schools when Mandarin has continued to gain importance? The reality is, we need Chinese language to trade and do business with China but China does not need English or Malay to trade with us.

I was thinking – how could all these accusations heaped on the Chinese help Malaysia solve its problems of corruption, cronyism, poor governance and incompetency? How could the Chinese, being evangelical Christians, make corruption worse in this country?

How could the Chinese schools make the competitive position of this country worse when the ability to read and write Chinese could only increase our economic value, not reduce it? How can Chinese participation in social and political activities make corruption and poor governance in this country worse when the whole civil service and important positions in Cabinet are already held by the Malays?

The Chinese are accused of running immoral and illegal business activities, but who are the people who are suppose to regulate, control and enforce these activities? We see illegal foreign workers everywhere, but who have allowed them in and condoned them in total oblivion.

The Chinese have been accused of being unpatriotic. But what is patriotism? Must one serve the armed forces, the police and the civil service to be patriotic? What if corrupted officials bought substandard arms which endangered the armed forces personnel? What if corrupted police allow illegal activities to thrive?

What if the civil service squandered the allocations meant for the targeted groups? On the other hand, if citizens work diligently, are self-reliant, take care of their families, educate their children, and pay taxes, are they not patriotic? What about citizens who uphold the ethics of their professions, do not shortchange their customers and are civic minded, are they not patriotic too?

If patriotism is just waving flags and reciting pledges, that would have been an easy thing to do. How true when Samuel Johnson said, “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” centuries ago.

I think the majority of the Chinese Malaysians would have detested politics if the “governing system” is working fine. Please don’t use exceptions to stereotype the Chinese. There are ugly, greedy and lazy Chinese as there are ugly, greedy and lazy Malays and Indians. – December 3, 2014.

Create Multiple Custom Email Address with one Gmail Account


Did you know that you can create multiple email addresses with one Gmail address . Yes it is possible and not most of us are aware of the few tricks involved to achieve this. You may ask why would you need multiple email addresses for your Gmail address? Let me explain it to you.

The point here is to make multiple email address from your primary Gmail address and create unique email addresses for registering with different websites and services. In fact you can have many different email addresses for your primary Gmail address, but all the mails send to these secondary email addresses will be received in your primary Gmail addresses inbox.

This way you can create a filter for each of the custom email address associated with your Gmail account and easily organize emails from different services and websites. If in any case a website starts sending spam into your inbox , you can easily set the specific filter in your Gmail account to delete all the mails instantly when received in your inbox.

Now lets find out how we can create multiple email addresses from your Gmail address. There are two methods for creating multiple email addresses for your Gmail address.

Method 1: Using “+” annotation in your Gmail address

If you want to create multiple email addresses from your Gmail address then you can use the “+” symbol to add another word to your Gmail address. For example,

Suppose your Gmail address is peterparker@Gmail.com and you want to create a custom email address for signing with amazon.com . To create this custom email address , all you need to do is just add the keyword “amazon “ before or after your username in your email address like this “ peterparker+amazon@Gmail.com” or“amazon+peterparker@gmail.com” and sign up with it on Amazon.com. Now all the emails from both these emails will be sent to your primary Gmail address atpeterparker@Gmail.com .
*The + method is incredibly dangerous - this sends the email to both gmail accounts [batman+brucewayne@gmail] will go to both [batman@gmail] and [brucewayne@gmail] if you do not own both accounts someone else may get your email!
It is as simple as that and you can use this simple trick to create an unlimited number of custom email addresses and all of the mails would be send to your primary Gmail address .


Method 2: Using dots in your Gmail address 

Coming to the second method, its an less known fact about Gmail. Gmail does not care about how many dots you have in your email address. In fact it doesn’t recognize any dots within a Gmail address, which means you can place any number of dots within your Gmail address before the @ tag and Gmail will ignore the dots and still send the mail to your original mail address sans the dots. For example ,

Lets take your email address to be brucewayne@Gmail.com . If you add a dot anywhere within the words “brucewayne” , Gmail will always ignore the dots. Example you can create multiple emails address like the below :
  • bruce.wayne@Gmail.com
  • br.uc.ew.ay.ne@Gmail.com
  • bruce.way.ne@Gmail.com
  • b.r.u.c.e.w.a.y.n.e@Gmail.com and a lot more .

All these above Gmail address will still point towards your primary Gmail address at brucewayne@Gmail.com . Depending upon your requirement you can have many uses of these tricks , even you can use these tricks to update your Gmail address . Go ahead and try create as many custom email address as you would like for your Gmail address . and do let us know how this was useful to you . Keep subscribed for us to know about more interesting how to tips and tricks .

Interstellar 星際效應

What Interstellar Got Right and Wrong About Science

Even a movie largely based on real science is bound to bend the rules a bit

If you’re one of the estimated 3 gajillion people who have seen or will see Chris Nolan’s blockbuster movie Interstellar, one thing is already clear to you: this is not a documentary. That means it’s fiction, specifically science fiction, which is how you get the sci and the fi in the sci-fi pairing. So if you go into the movie looking for a lot of scientific ‘gotcha’ moments, let’s stipulate up front that you’re going to find some.

That said, part of Interstellar’s considerable appeal is that it does go heavy on the science part of things. Nolan enlisted Caltech cosmologist Kip Thorne as the film’s technical adviser, and Thorne kept a whip hand on the production, ensuring that the storyline hewed as closely as possible to the head-crackingly complex physics that govern the universe.

So where did Interstellar play it absolutely straight and where did it take the occasional narrative liberty? 
Here are a few of the key plot points and the verdict from the scientists (warning, there may be spoilers ahead):

  • A worm hole could open in space, providing a short cut from one side of the universe to the other.
    Verdict: Mostly true

Worm holes are a pretty well-accepted part of modern cosmology and it’s Thorne’s theorems that have helped make them that way. The idea is that if you think of space-time less as a void than as a sort of fabric—which it is—it could, under the right circumstances fold over on itself. Punching the necessary holes in that fabric so that you could make your universe-transiting trip would be a bit more difficult. That would require what’s known as negative energy—an energetic state less than zero—to create the portal and keep it open, says Princeton cosmologist J. Richard Gott. There have been attempts to create such conditions in the lab, which is a long way from a real wormhole but at least helps prove the theory.

One bit of license the Interstellar story did take concerns how the wormhole came to be. It takes a massive object to generate a gravity field sufficient to fold space-time in half, and the one in the movie would have to be the equivalent of 100 million of our suns, says Gott. Depending on where in the universe you placed an object with that kind of mass, it could make a real mess of the surrounding worlds—but it doesn’t in the movie.

  • Getting too close to the gravity well of a massive object like a black hole causes time to move more slowly for you than it would for people on Earth.
    Verdict: True

For this one, stay with space-time as a fabric—a stretched one, like a trampoline. Now place a 500-lb. cannon ball on it. That’s your black hole with its massive gravity field. The vertical threads in the weave of the fabric are space, the horizontal ones are time, and the cannon ball can’t distort one without distorting the other, too. That means that everything—including how soon your next birthday comes—will be stretched out. Really, it’s as simple as that—unless you want to spend some time with the equations that prove the point, which, trust us, you don’t.

  • It would be possible to communicate to Earth from within a black hole.
    Verdict: Maybe

The accepted truth about a black hole is that its gravitational grip is so powerful that not even light can escape—which is how it got its name. But even physics may have loopholes, and one of them is something known as Hawking radiation, discovered by, well, guess who. When a particle falls into a black hole, the fact that it’s falling creates another form of negative energy. But nature hates when its books are unbalanced—a negative without a corresponding positive is like a debit without a credit. So the black hole emits a particle to keep everything revenue- neutral. Zillions of those particles create a form of outflowing energy—and energy can be encoded to carry information, which is how all forms of wireless communication work. That’s hardly the same as being able to radio down to Houston from within a black hole’s maw, but it takes you a big step closer.

  • It would be possible to survive the leap into the black hole from which you hope to do your communicating in the first place.
    Verdict: False—except…

Cosmologists vie for the best term to describe what would happen to you if you crossed over a black hole’s so-called event horizon, or its light-gobbling threshold. The winner, in a linguistic landslide: spaghettification—which does not sound good. But that nasty end may not happen immediately. “Most people would agree that a person who jumps into a black hole is doomed,” says Columbia University cosmologist and best-selling author Brian Greene, “but if the black hole is big enough, you wouldn’t get spaghettified right away.” That’s small comfort, but for a good screenwriter, it’s all the wiggle room you need.

  • And finally: Anne Hathaway could move through time and space and help save all of humanity and her hair would still look fabulous.
    Verdict: Who cares? We wouldn’t have it any other way.



解析 星際效應(Interstellar) 完全圖解分析

source :http://www.movier.tw/post.php?SID=44160

壹。宇宙與蟲洞
首先,先跟各位建立幾個基本概念。我們必須知道,宇宙中,空間維度是非常大的。天體與天體之間的距離,是難以想像的遠。正所謂太空太空,就是有太多的空間可以使用。因此,我們在地球上觀察到的天體,包括星星(恆星)、行星、星雲星系,其實都是相當遙遠的。因此,在天文觀測上,並不會使用公尺公里來計算距離,而是使用”光年”。這裡非常重要的是,”光年”指的是”光走一年的距離”,指的是”距離”,而不是”時間”。一光年等於9.46乘以10的12次方公里,可想而知是非常非常的遠。目前已知的與太陽系最近的恆星,是半人馬座的比鄰星,大約是4.22光年。也就是說,比鄰星上發出的光,經過4.22年才會到達地球,反過來說,目前地球所觀測到的比鄰星,其實是4.22年以前的樣子。(如圖一所示)
圖一  宇宙的空間非常大,天體之間相當遙遠


也正因為太空旅行是十分漫長,也十分費時,根本就超乎人類壽命可及。因此電影設定了一個人類發明—冬眠箱,是提供人類在太空旅行時,讓身體機能暫時變緩慢,生命得以延長,也可以節省太空船上的食物與燃料(製造氧氣等維生事物)。而太空人都在太空船上冬眠,那誰能操作太空船?因此電影又設定了智慧型機器人的發明,可協助太空人在太空旅行中各種需求,包括計算、代理操作太空船等等功能。

另外,電影裡最重要的主題—蟲洞,也需要好好建立起觀念。而在解釋蟲洞之前,我們必須了解,什麼是次元(維度)?一維(一次元)是一條線的意思,二維(二次元)就是兩條線可以組成的平面,而三維(三次元)則是除了平面外又具有高度的空間,四維(四次元)則是在空間中加入時間的進行。我們目前所處於三次元的立體維度中,因此,在思考一切的物理模式時,通常直接以二次元表達,是最能夠讓人理解的表達方式。現在,我們將宇宙的立體空間想像成只有二次元的平面,就好像一個平整的床鋪一樣。此時,我們如果將一顆籃球放在床鋪上,因為籃球的重量,床鋪就會變得塌陷。但如果今天我們將籃球換成重一點的保齡球,床鋪就塌陷的更深了。利用這種概念,換成天體,每個天體都有其重量、質量,因此他會將空間扭曲,就如同籃球將床鋪塌陷了一樣。我們在進一步想像,今天我們拿的是一顆非常重非常重的保齡球,這顆保齡球不只10磅、15磅,而是無限重的,那床鋪不就無限塌陷了嗎?而換做成天體,這種無限的重力塌陷,就是黑洞了。正因為這種無限的重力塌陷,光線經過也會無限制的塌陷下去,因此是黑壓壓的一片,這就是為什麼黑洞是黑色的了。而蟲洞則是一個通道、隧道的概念,與黑洞類似,但是是具有兩端開口,連接的是扭曲空間的兩地。

電影用了一張摺疊的紙張解釋,這樣一個洞,只是因為我們是用二次元的方式想像,一個圓形的洞,在紙上看似一個平面的圓,但是換成是立體空間,他就是一顆球形。這也是為什麼電影當中看到的黑洞是球形的圓了。我們可以想像,蟲洞其實就是將我們想像的平面宇宙(二次元)扭曲,變成一個很短的路徑,換成我們剛剛提到的床鋪,就是將床鋪對折了起來,並解打了個洞,可以縮短遙遠太空旅行的距離。


貳.拉撒路任務
以下為電影當中,庫柏(馬修麥康納飾演)遇見轉為秘密發展的NASA時的解釋,同時也是電影世界觀的設定。

50年前,人類在土星附近觀測到一個扭曲時空的蟲洞。而蟲洞並不是自然現象,而是被不知道什麼人放的,放的目的也不知道,只知道他通往遙遠的外太空。(如圖二所示)
圖二  人類發現的蟲洞


40年前,人類發射探測船,在球體的蟲洞外圍觀測到,在蟲洞連結到的遙遠的外太空有12顆未知的星球。這12顆未知的星球,並不知道哪一顆是適合人類居住的,只知道,以當時科學的能力而言,只能說這12顆都很有可能適合人類居住。這裡也必須再次強調,地球與土星十分遙遠、地球與土星所在的太陽系與12顆未知星球的距離十分遙遠、12顆未知星球之間的距離也是十分遙遠,只要記住,每個天體之間都是非常遙遠的觀念就對了。

10年前, 人類派出12位勇敢過人的太空人,透過神秘的蟲洞前往12顆未知星球探測,2年後回報各自狀況。此次12位勇敢太空人的任務,被稱為”拉撒路任務”(Lazarus Mission)(如圖三所示)。在幾年後的拉撒路任務回報,人類已知12顆未知星球中,只有3顆回報是可能適合人類居住的星球。

補充說明,”拉撒路任務”取自聖經裡,耶穌的門徒拉撒路,他在病死後埋葬在一個洞穴之中,四天後被耶穌吩咐復活,並奇蹟似的從洞穴中復活。
圖三 拉撒路任務


參。永續號任務
永續號任務由庫柏(馬修麥康納飾演)、布蘭達(安海瑟薇飾演)、羅米利(大衛吉雅西飾演)與道爾(韋斯賓尼飾演)四人組成,另外,還有協助他們四人的兩台機器人塔斯(T.A.R.S)與凱斯(C.A.S.E)。他們乘坐由漫遊者一、二號與永續號所組成的太空船,朝著土星蟲洞前進,並在土星附近進入蟲洞。在通過蟲洞的過程中,布蘭達將手伸出扭曲的時空外,發生”握手”事件。通過蟲洞後,來到遙遠的星系,也就是12顆未知星球所在的星系。(如圖四所示) 

在這裡必須解釋的是,我們在國中地球科學天文篇都有學到,我們地球所屬的太陽系是由恆星(太陽)以及許多行星(如水星、金星、地球等等)組成的,英文則稱為System。電影中解釋道永續號任務尋找的12顆未知星系所屬的System,被中文翻譯為”系統”而非星系,就造成了個人在第一次看電影時miss掉這重要的關鍵解釋,而將蟲洞與巨人兩者搞混的窘境。

另外,在這裡有人或許會問,那為什麼其中有兩顆行星是繞行著黑洞運轉呢?我們回到二次元的概念想像宇宙間的萬有引力,其實就是剛剛前面所提到的重力塌陷的結果。就像我們打籃球有時會發生籃球在籃框上打轉,卻遲遲不進籃網的情況。天體與天體間的引力影響,其實就像這樣,並不是你拉我我拉你,其實就是重力塌陷的關係互相影響,把時間拉長,兩個互相作用的天體其實是互相越來越近的。因此,若以我們所屬的太陽系而言,太陽的質量比較大,地球就在太陽的重力塌陷的籃框上打轉,終有一天地球將會與太陽越靠越近,直到相撞。而今天在電影中所提到的兩顆繞行黑洞的”系統”(星系),由於黑洞是質量無限大的天體,所造成的重力塌陷是無限大,連時間的維度也會造成影響。時間維度越靠近黑洞將被壓縮,反之則相對變放大,這就是為什麼最後庫柏在繞行黑洞(電影中稱之為巨人)時,提到簡單繞行巨人一下的小動作,在地球上相對而言其實是過了50年。

圖四 永續號任務(一)


我們將電影登陸的順序,將目標的3顆星球命名為A、B、C。分別為拉撒路任務中米勒博士、曼恩博士與艾德蒙斯博士所探測的星球。庫柏、布蘭達、道爾、羅米利四人,與兩個機器人穿越蟲洞後,抵達3顆目標星球所在的區域。他們首先決定探索星球組成充滿水的A星球開始探索。這時候電影提到,四人團隊將分為羅米利與另外(庫柏、布蘭達、道爾)三人兩組。羅米利留守永續號繞行黑洞視界(電影中稱之為巨人Gargantua)觀察並收集巨人資料進行研究;庫柏、布蘭達與道爾則駕駛漫遊者一號前往登陸A星球。(如圖五、六所示)

圖五 永續號任務(二)


圖六 永續號任務(三)


在登陸A星球後的三人,發現A星球是充滿水的星球。星球上有危險的海嘯巨浪,並發現拉撒路任務的米勒博士已經死亡,因此證實A星球執行人類移民已經無望。在確認失敗返回羅米利留守的永續號過程中,道爾不幸被海嘯沖走而殉難。漫遊者一號上,只剩庫柏與布蘭達返回永續號。

由於時間維度壓縮放大的關係,繞行巨人的羅米利時間被放大,而另外執行登陸任務的三人時間被壓縮,因此庫柏和布蘭達雖然只用了幾小時登陸A星球,繞行巨人的道爾其實已經等了23年。當然值得幸慰的是,這23年期間,羅米利蒐集了可觀的黑洞資訊,可以提供未來人類在科學上的參考。(如圖七所示)
圖七 永續號任務(四)

另外電影中也提到,米勒博士其實在登陸時還活著,但在事後遭遇到海嘯的侵襲而死亡。在活著的其間發射出”可行性訊號”其實因為時間維度的放大,隔了好幾年才讓地球人知道,但其實受到時間維度的壓縮,庫柏、布蘭達、道爾三人找到米勒的時候,其實米勒剛死亡不久而已。

永續號任務持續進行,剩下的庫柏、布蘭達、羅米利三人必須抉擇前往B星球與C星球,只因他們體會到時間維度放大壓縮的可怕性。一方面必須為人類移民爭取時間,一方面庫柏希望盡快回到在地球的家人身邊。因此在時間考量下,C星球因為距離太過遙遠,而被放棄,轉而前往與巨人較近的B星球。而這次登陸B星球的任務,將機器人凱斯留守於永續號上,庫柏、布蘭達、羅米利與機器人塔斯則執行登陸任務。(如圖八所示)
圖八 永續號任務(五)


B星球由拉撒路任務中的曼恩博士探測,三人成功登陸B星球後發現曼恩博士確實存活,並對人類移民產生了希望。但事實上,曼恩博士只是因為無法承受孤單在外太空死去的壓力,捏造了探測數據,將假資料回傳給地球,讓永續號任務誤信B星球為可行性星球。在證實B星球是無用星球後,羅米利遇害,曼恩博士搶奪了漫遊者一號試圖接合永續號,但在接合過程中失敗,造成永續號一部份的損傷。庫柏與布蘭達架式拉撒路任務的太空船成功取得永續號控制後發現,受損的永續號漸漸偏離B星球軌道而朝巨人靠近。(如圖九所示)
圖九  永續號任務(六)


剩下的兩人決定前往C星球執行B計畫,並且讓機器人塔斯在巨人視界後蒐集資訊回傳。兩人再利用巨人的引力直接彈射至C星球。但庫柏為了讓永續號重量減輕,則直接將布蘭達所屬的太空船與自己所屬的太空船分離,讓布蘭達帶著B計畫中的人類受精卵前往C星球進行繁衍計畫,而讓自己彈射滑入巨人黑洞的視界之中。(如圖十所示)
圖十 永續號任務(七)


分道揚鑣的庫柏與布蘭達,分別前往巨人的黑洞視界與C星球。布蘭達在抵達C星球後雖然發現拉薩路任務的艾德蒙博士死亡,但C星球確實適合人類居住,因此成功執行了B計畫,讓人類得以在C星球延續生命。而進入黑洞的庫柏,則在過程中太空船損壞而彈射,意外漂浮進入五次元空間。(如圖十一、十二所示)
圖十一 永續號任務(八)


圖十二 永續號任務(九)


五次元空間就是已經跳脫我們熟知的三次元立體空間,時間在這個空間中為非線性,也就是說時間是可以任意變換。電影進行到此,已經跳脫了科學,完全是理性的科學狂想,庫柏在這裡意外發現這個這個空間其實是可以改變過去時間的,而且改變的地點,竟然就是自己女兒墨菲的房間書櫃。起初,庫柏嘗試利用一般的物理改變,如推動書櫃上的書本、用書本間的空隙製造摩斯密碼等方式取得在不同時間空間中墨菲的聯繫,但最後都失敗。

嘗試幾次失敗後的庫柏與較先進入巨人空間的機器人塔斯取得聯繫,塔斯告訴庫柏,這個他所見的奇特空間,其實是五次元空間的生物、團塊?為了讓庫柏這種低次元生物了解,所製造出的三次元空間,並且依照不同的時間維度,所排列而成的超立方空間。最後庫柏了解,他必須在這個空間中找到對的時間空間,透過重力改變或其他方式,穿越了時空維度,讓長大的墨菲知道塔斯蒐集到的黑洞資訊,讓久久無法解開的重力數學方程式得以解開,人類的科學前進了一大步,人類終於有能力自己製造重力,讓A計畫—地球人大規模移民計畫,得以可行,庫柏的任務也終於達成。(如圖十三所示)
圖十三  永續號任務(十)


 永續號的任務成功,超立方體空間關閉,庫柏與塔斯被傳送回土星軌道中,被執行A計畫的庫柏太空站救回。(如圖十四所示)
圖十四  永續號任務(十一)


由於時間維度壓縮放大的關係,庫柏的女兒莫菲已經年老,庫柏在太空船的病床邊見到子孫滿堂的莫菲,也和莫菲在太空船道別。庫柏依照莫菲的指示,前往已在C星球建立人口的布蘭達會面。庫柏因此私自開走NASA的小型太空船,與塔斯一同踏上穿越蟲洞前往C星球的旅程。(如圖十五所示)
圖十五  康柏踏上的偉大的旅程


肆。時間軸總整
原圖:http://i.imgur.com/iStmqvt.jpg

圖中的藍色方格是以"地球"的時間計算,每格為2年。

橘色的方格則是該角色的體感時間,如果是以藍色方格來看,大家都是站在"地球"同一個基準點來看。若在太空中執行任務時受到重力影響,時空受到壓縮或放大的扭曲,體感時間則會改變。

這裡要記住,時間不是絕對的而是相對的。也就是說,當AB兩人在同一個地方過日子,時間是不會有差異的。當B的所在地受到重力扭曲而變緩,B看A則會認為A過得非常快的時間,反之A看B則會認為過得非常慢。

回到電影,電影中有確切年齡的人只有庫伯的女兒墨菲,在庫柏離開地球前為10歲。而依照庫柏從地球出發,2年的地球到土星到執行完第一顆行星登陸23年總共經過25年後,莫菲傳了訊息給父親說他今天生日,是與庫柏離開地球的同年齡,也就是庫柏離開地球時是35歲,而當中的老布蘭達教授、布蘭達、道爾、羅米利的年齡是我自己概估的,但基本上並不影響主要時間軸的計算。

因此我假設老布蘭達教授在永續號任務開始執行時為50歲,布蘭達約為25歲,道爾和羅米利約為30歲推算。

另外電影當中有明確講出另一個相對時間數字,就是說名在米勒博士的海嘯行星上過一小時,其實是地球的7年,換算登陸行動開始到結束,沒有參與登陸行動的羅米利表示他等了23年又8個月14天,我們就直接以23年計算,登陸行動對庫柏、布蘭達大概就是3.3小時左右,另外電影中也明確說明。

最後庫柏和布蘭達在執行"甩開巨人引力"的動作,浪費了地球的50年,因此回推庫柏被救出的地球歲數124歲,也就是他在地球的大概75歲左右執行甩開巨人引力的行動。

藉由上述兩個在電影中有明確說到數字的線索回推,登陸曼恩博士的冰凍行星,是浪費了地球的15年,若以1小時等於7年的時間回推是2小時左右
但本人是支持冰凍行星比海嘯行星更靠巨人更近,因此延長的時間會更大,故在這裡計算是登陸冰凍行星庫柏和布蘭達所經歷的時間大約小於2小時。

而最後我們得到的結論是,墨菲與庫柏最後團聚時,墨菲已經104歲(電影提到有用冬眠箱睡了2年),庫柏的地球歲數為124,但實際的體感時間其實是37歲左右。而成功在艾德蒙斯博士的星球上執行B計畫的布蘭達,在地球的歲數約為119歲,而實際的體感時間在電影中無法推測,要看布蘭達脫離巨人引力後到艾德蒙博士星球所費時間為何判斷。

故事終了。電影整體可說是具有科學理論基礎,而且創意十足。希望以上的圖解能夠讓大家清楚明白,也希望大家會喜歡了!

Budget 2014 – And The Biggest Winner Is…

Are you still wondering how much you stand to gain (or lose) after the announcement of Budget 2014?

On 25 October 2013, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tabled the Budget 2014, with various goodies and changes. But will these changes affect the Malaysian populace significantly, especially when it comes to finances?

This infographic explains how your household income can affect how much you can gain from the latest Budget.


一位40年经验的癌症专家:不要再上癌症的当

癌症专家——近藤诚,日本庆应大学医院放射科医生,行医超过40年,敢于发表许多与大众切身相关却无人敢说的医疗意见,被日本民众亲切地称为“医界良心”。出生于医生世家,毕业于庆应大学医学部,后前往美国留学,并取得博士学位。回国后担任庆应大学医学部放射线科讲师,专攻癌症的放射线治疗,也是闻名全国的乳房保留疗法的先驱。

其功绩受到了全社会的高度评价,于2012年荣获“第60届菊池宽奖”(得奖者皆为对日本文化有莫大贡献的各界人士)。著有《癌症别急着开刀》《患者啊,不要与癌症斗争》《癌症的放任自流疗法》等多部敲响医疗警钟的畅销著作。


1.可怕的不是癌症,而是“癌症的治疗”
为什么一些原本很精神的人,得了癌症之后却撑不了多久呢?这都是因为他们接受了“癌症的治疗”。只要“不治疗”癌症,患者就会保持头脑清晰的状态,直到生命的最后一刻。只要处理方法得当,身体也能活动自如。有许多癌症是不会痛的。真的痛了,疼痛也是可以控制的。

如果你没有出现痛、难受、吃不下饭等症状,却在公司组织的体检中查出了癌症,那么这个“癌”就一定是“假性癌”。光靠乳房X光片就能查出的乳腺癌也有99%是假性癌,但大多数患者仍会进行乳房切除手术,请大家多加小心。


2.真性癌发现得再早也没用。
在第一个癌症干细胞诞生的那一刻,癌症夺走宿主生命的时间就已确定下来,只不过因为发现得早,表面上的“生存时间” 相应变长罢了。所以在很多情况下,我们必须看“10年生存率”,才能判断一个患者到底有没有被“治好”。


3.手术是人工造成的重伤。
做完手术后,体力会下降,身体会很容易受感染,还有可能留下终生无法治好的后遗症,死在手术台上也是常有的事。要是医生建议你做手术,那你最好仔细想一想,做完手术后会怎么样,想得越具体越好。而且手术很有可能激发癌症。医学界有一种形象的说法:“一动手术,癌细胞就会大爆发,就会暴跳如雷。”因为手术会留下伤口,而伤口破坏了正常细胞的壁垒,血液中的癌细胞会乘虚而入,加速繁殖,最终大爆发。


4.化疗剧毒。
能用化疗治好的成人癌只有急性白血病、恶性淋巴瘤、睾丸癌、子宫绒毛癌这4种,而这几种癌只占所有癌症的左右。化疗能否延长患者的生命还有待证明,而且药物的毒性很强,会带来严重的副作用。年龄越大,抽烟的时间越长,化疗的毒性就会体现得越明显。

5.90%的癌症,无论治不治,生存时间都一样。任医学如何发展,真性癌都是不可能靠人力治好的。“癌症消失了”“奇迹般生还”之类的动人故事大多与假性癌有关。假性癌就跟脸上的痘痘一样,不用管它,自然会消失,可医生却通过媒体大肆宣扬“我们把癌症治好了”。


6.就算医生确定你得了癌症,要是你感觉不到痛苦,那还是静观其变比较好。
如果你实在想治疗,那就请好好调查一下,看看医生的诊断是否正确。


7.手术成功了≠癌症治好了。
就算手术做得非常完美,无懈可击,货真价实的固体癌也一定会复发。


8.越是“先进”的疗法,越要小心。
很多技术明明还处于试验阶段,可一冠上“先进”二字,患者就会被牵着鼻子走。总之,请大家对带有“先进”二字的疗法多加小心。


9.检查的做法是从360°全方位发射X光,拍摄出人体的横截面。
1次CT检查的放射线剂量相当于普通X光片的200~300倍!1次CT检查的辐射剂量足以诱发癌症。


10.强化免疫力无益于癌症的预防和治疗,甚至可以说是完全无效的
为什么呢?因为免疫细胞的职责是攻打外来异物,但癌细胞是人体本身的细胞变异而成的,人类的免疫系统不会将癌细胞视作敌人。癌之所以能长到直径1厘米,之所以会被查出来,都是因为NK免疫细胞没有把癌细胞当成敌人,这就是免疫系统无法杀灭癌细胞的铁证。


我们应该怎么做?

忘记癌症,别做手术,也别做放疗,更不要做化疗。等身体开始难受了,再想办法缓解疼痛即可。如此一来,才能在最轻松舒适的状态下延长生命。如果医生没有明说,那就不要去问,因为谁都不知道你到底能活多久。

无论患者得的是癌症还是其他疾病,都需要由医生去完成治疗行为。但患者没有必要把决定治疗方针的大权交给医生,医生也没有资格对患者指手画脚。

我们可以学习那些不断滚动的石头。滚动着的石头是不会长苔藓的。

只要多活动身躯,多转动大脑,人体就不会生锈。

只要让感情变得更丰富,每天都有喜怒哀乐,我们的“五感”(视觉、听觉、嗅觉、味觉、触觉)就不会变迟钝。

远离让你不愉快的事情,珍惜活着的喜悦。

恰如其分地活动手脚,动嘴皮子,转动大脑,保持感情与感官的灵活。

经常走路,血液就会在全身运转,不会滞留在下半身,血压就会比较稳定。

哈哈大笑,有助于运动表情肌与横膈膜,呼吸会变得更深,血液循环也会变好,连身体都会暖和起来。

多吃美味佳肴,多做自己喜欢的事情,就能让心情变得愉悦,让身体分泌更多的血清素、多巴胺、内啡肽,提升意欲与情绪,如此一来,人生就会变得更快乐。

经验告诉我,只要心情愉快,就会忘记小小的不适,癌症也不会大爆发了。

“不抑郁”才是最贴合自然机理的、最伟大的保健方法。

XX國小一位神人级學生的作文 (藝人名字)

從前有一座很大的城堡,名叫郭富城

裡面住著劉德華和張惠妹一對夫妻

有一天,他們吃完黃子蕉後,去周星池喝水

正當他們下著丁文棋,而劉德華下舒棋時

突然間刮起了一陣謝霆風

從水中冒出了一條吳奇龍

吳奇龍手持著鄭伊劍,騎著黃家駒,搶走了張惠妹



這時劉德華手持周華劍,踏著溫兆輪

翻過了李茂山,穿過了蔡依林,躍過了羅江(不曉得是不是年代的關係,我不太認識他)

終於搶回了張惠妹

回到了郭富城

還在城中掛起了任賢旗





後來,吳奇龍不死心

換了一把張衛劍,踏上周杰輪

來到了柯賜海,坐上趙船,又回到郭富城

他搶走張惠妹,拆了任賢旗,換插梁詠旗



於是劉德華他馬上灑了一把葛明灰

招喚出午馬,並以其當坐騎

頂著大大的五月天

天上又有朵許茹雲

又穿過何耀山,翻過張震嶽

經過陳慧林,越過陳山河

腳踩濱崎步

手使出 劍氣 潘迎指

劃破了吳奇龍的倉木麻衣

吳奇龍趕緊拿起吳宗線跟陳綺針
卻縫不好

又打暴她的脫拉褲

害吳奇龍的飛鳥涼

吳奇龍只好爬上蕭牆,拉了個反町隆屎回家種宇多田

沒想到卻引來了李蚊 和
鄭秀蚊

一氣之下,把牠們打死在趙之壁上

反町隆屎經過百萬年後變成了穿島合金石(不曉得這是不是個藝人)



終於打敗了吳奇龍

但是 再一個日子 六月

又也一個邪惡勢力出現了

就是 邪教 西川貴教

住在范逸城

他們的實力真是大無限

麾下的可米小子也很強


他們吃著愛內理菜,佩戴著戴愛鈴



有一天,可米小子跑出去玩

走在櫻木花道上

看到劉德華在幫張惠妹KOBE

他們躲在蕭牆後面偷看..

旁邊種了一棵赤木

忽然可米沒站好摔到三井裡面去..

張惠妹發現自己被偷看.趕緊穿上工藤新衣..

劉德華立刻使出濱崎步

把可米小子踢到孫中山裡面去

並帶著張惠妹回家吃孫悟飯


師評:"思想豐富,但太過於誇張,下次請不要更改藝人名字"

闪电水灾VS闪电汽油涨

吉隆坡闪电水灾


今天(1日)下午3时许,吉隆坡突然下起倾盆大雨,导致市内多条主要道路发生闪电水灾,车主因担心“涉水而过”会导致车辆抛锚,选择停下待雨水退去才继续行驶。

根据吉隆坡市政局水灾行动室职员发言人指出,下午的一场大雨,导致苏丹依斯迈路、安邦路边界处、斯迪亚旺沙轻快铁站前、陈秀连路、柏威年购物广场前及金马路发生闪电水灾。

“上述路段是于下午4时须开始淹水,在傍晚6时许,因已开是停雨,所以淹水情况好转。而市政局也在接获投报后,也派员到各个闪电水灾现场,并采取适当行动以便积水能尽快退去。”

在嘉炳路(Jalan Kia Peng)一个露天停车场,相信因排水系统出问题,以致停车场发生水灾,而有多量停在停车场内的车辆已经“浸泡”在水中。


槟城淹水,就唱衰林神,執政六年无法解决。国政執政中央快六十年,首善之區吉隆坡淹水都还无法解决,国政槍手快想辨法自圓其說罷!

這種水果竟然能「甜」死癌細胞!


研究人員發現,飯後吃個梨或喝杯熱梨汁,積存在人體內的致癌物質可以大量排出。調查結果顯示,吸煙或者吃烤肉等在體內聚集的強致癌物質多環芳香烴,在吃梨後會顯著降低,特別是喝了加熱過的梨汁。專家建議,在人們熱衷於吃煎烤食品、快餐類食品的今天,飯後吃個梨不失為一種值得推薦的健康生活方式。

梨子自古被推尊為“百果之宗”。味甘微酸、性寒、無毒。可以止咳、潤肺涼心、消炎降火、解痰毒酒毒之功效。梨子含有充足水分、及一些葡萄糖、蔗糖和維生素A、B、C、D、E並能提供纖維素和鈣、磷、鐵、碘、鉀等微量元素。還有一定量的蛋白質、脂肪、胡蘿蔔素、維生素B1、B2和蘋果酸等。能維持身體細胞的健康狀態,幫助器官排毒、淨化機體,軟化血管,促進血液循環把血中的鈣質運送至骨骼,增強骨鈣質。但是吃梨子必須細嚼慢嚥才能更好的被消化道吸收和利用,起到應有的效果。

飯後吃梨有益健康
研究人員對吸煙者進行了試驗,讓他們在4天內連續每天吃750克梨,並測定吃梨前後尿液中多環芳香烴的代謝產物1-羥基芘含量。結果發現,吸煙6小時後吃梨,人體血液內1-羥基芘會經尿液大量排出;如果不吃梨,1-羥基芘排出很少。而加熱的梨汁含有大量的抗癌物質多酚,給注射過致癌物質的小白鼠喝這樣的梨汁,白鼠尿液中就能排出大量的1-羥基芘毒素,從而有效預防癌症。

另外,梨雖然很甜,但其熱量和脂肪含量很低,中老年人多吃些梨,可以幫助人體淨化器官,軟化血管。吃梨還對厭食、消化不良、腸炎、慢性咽炎等疾病有一定的輔助療效。不過,專家提醒,梨雖然是佳果,也不宜多食,風寒咳嗽、脘腹冷痛、脾虛便溏者以及產婦都要慎食。梨還有利尿作用,夜尿頻者睡前要少吃梨。梨含果酸多,胃酸較多的人,也不可多食。

第一、潤肺清燥、止咳化痰、養血生肌
梨汁味甘酸而平,有潤肺清燥、止咳化痰、養血生肌的作用,因此對喉乾燥、癢、痛、音啞、痰稠等均有良效。

第二、促進胃腸蠕動
梨汁富含膳食纖維,是最好的腸胃“清潔工”。飯館裡的飯菜大都以“味”取勝,食物多油膩或辛辣,吃後容易誘發便秘。而飯後喝杯梨汁,能促進胃腸蠕動,使積存在體內的有害物質大量排出,避免便秘。

第三、保護肝臟、適合飲酒的人
梨含有較多醣類和多種維生素,對肝臟有一定的保護作用,特別適合飲酒人士。

第四、低血壓、養陰清熱
梨具有降低血壓、養陰清熱的功效,患高血壓、心髒病、肝炎、肝硬化的病人,經常喝些梨汁大有益處。

第五、有助腎臟排泄
梨有助於腎臟排泄尿酸和預防痛風、風濕病和關節炎。

第六、促進食慾,助消化
梨能促進食慾,幫助消化,並有利尿通便和解熱作用,可用於高熱時補充水分和營養。

第七、養陰潤燥消風
梨具有潤燥消風的功效,在氣候乾燥時,人們常感到皮膚瘙癢、口鼻乾燥,有時干咳少痰,每天喝一兩杯梨汁可緩解乾燥。

第八、緩解咽喉刺激
吸煙的人喝梨汁,可以減輕香煙中有害物質對咽喉、呼吸道的刺激。

Nu Skin 夸大利益,金字塔传销

vedeo: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=700105913393618

《人民日报》三揭“如新”骗局:在美国屡遭处罚【Nu Skin】

【因虚假宣传,夸大利润,和金字塔式传销多次受罚】
在美国曾被六州司法机关调查,多次被处以罚款;擅自使用研究人员姓名,被知名大学断绝联系。本报和人民网驻美国记者调查发现,如新公司在发展过程中,始终存在着违规操作、违法经营的问题。

15、16日,本报连续刊发报道《看“如新”怎样编织谎言》《看“如新”怎样攻陷人心》,揭露如新公司虚假宣传、涉嫌传销及利用大型集会“洗脑”,引发关注。 记者通过多方调查,发现不仅在国内,如新在海外也曾因传销屡遭处罚。

http://finance.people.com.cn/n/2014/0117/c1004-24144511.html



司法指控:

  记者调查发现,如新公司自从1984年创建于美国犹他州之后,对于其经营模式的质疑和调查就没有间断过。据了解,在美国,运用金字塔式的多层发展经销员模式是违法的,美国各地司法机关不断对如新公司提出指控。

  1991年,美国有6个州的司法机关对如新公司展开调查,内容包括其对产品进行虚假宣传、夸大销售利润以及多层发展经销员。1992年初,如新公司赔钱平息了5个州的指控,包括向经销人员退还90%货款、改正宣传方式等。但康涅狄格州总检察长不愿意就此了结,他对如新公司误导经销人员、进行违法传销的做法提起公诉。这位总检察长在接受采访时表示:“以金字塔层级形式吸收会员,将盈利主要建立在收取会费、抽成,而不是销售产品上的经营手法,就是违法传销。”这种模式需要不断吸收会员以支持在金字塔顶部的高级成员,直到整个系统最终分崩离析。在康州,加入“如新”每月平均只能赚到38美元,而如新却宣称,成员加入后就可以“经济独立”。

  为平息指控,如新公司不得不承诺:以九折价格无限期回购产品;必须如实告知成员,并不是所有人都能通过销售产品获得收入;严禁基于发展下线的奖励制度;新成员可以在30天内退出并获得全部退款等。

1997年,宾夕法尼亚州总检察长指控如新公司通过一家名为QIQ的分支机构开展传销。最后,如新公司不得不关闭了QIQ,但将会员转到了另一家名为分支公司,业务实际上如出一辙。这家公司的人员结构是传销机构中典型的金字塔形,从上到下依次为钻石、祖母绿、红宝石、青金石、黄金及普通会员共6级。

  美国联邦贸易委员会(FTC)也一直对如新公司以传销手段进行销售展开调查。1994年经FTC调查,如新公司夸大产品功效和经销商利润,如新公司宣传资料说,销售人员年收入“超过6万美元”,很多人可以获得超过16万美元的年收入。但实际上,70%的销售人员只获得300美元年收益。最后,如新公司承诺如实宣传销售人员实际收入,并支付了123万美元罚款。1997年,FTC指控如新公司对其减肥、促进肌肉生长等产品进行不实宣传,如新再次向美国联邦贸易委员会交付150万美元罚款。

=============

高校决裂:
【研究并无进展,禁止如新盗用名号 】

记者查实,2012年8月,斯坦福大学发出一封禁止函,要求如新公司停止在宣传材料中使用其研究人员姓名,因为该研究人员与如新公司没有任何关系。

  在如新公司ageLOC产品线的宣传中,斯坦福大学科学家斯图尔特·金被列为合作伙伴,并称ageLOC是与斯坦福大学共同研发的产品。如新公司宣称该产品可以通过“基因重设”技术延缓人类衰老,该产品占销售总额的四成。这名科学家表示,确实曾与如新开展过合作,但由于研究没有进展,双方合作关系已经在2011年终止。

============

弃车保帅:
【把责任推给销售人员,称将配合调查,予以处罚】

  15日,如新公司通过官方网站发布声明,称“今天发表于《人民日报》的文章包含了不准确和夸大的信息”,但并未明确哪些内容不准确和夸大。 美国东部时间1月15日下午,记者向如新公司的美国总部发去采访邮件,如新公司发言人卡拉(Kara Schneck)回复邮件说:“我不确定公司负责人能否接受采访,因为他们中有人在国外出差。请把具体问题发过来,我们将尽力在邮件中回答。”记者随后发去采访提纲,但到截稿时没有得到回复。 声明中,如新表示,“我们将公开地与监管层沟通,来处理由这篇文章引起的疑问”,“我们对旗下销售团队进行积极教育,以便使他们遵守一切监管规定及公司政策和程序,任何违反地方法律或公司政策的销售团队成员都将受到处罚”。

  对于如新想把责任推给一线团队的做法,北京市岳成律师事务所主任岳运生告诉记者,对于一个公司来讲,可能存在多种经营模式,如设立分公司,甚至借助更低层次的经营团队等。但他表示,由于分公司不具有独立法人资格,因此分公司的所有经营后果和法律责任由总公司承担;而对于经营团队来说,只要其归属于总公司或总公司下属的分公司,且以总公司或者分公司的名义拓展业务,那么这个经营团队的经营后果和法律责任都应由总公司承担。

  专家表示,只要经营主体不具备独立法人资格,那么它的经营行为均属于职务行为,都该由总公司来承担责任。

Malaysians need to start putting their children in child car seats when travelling in their cars

While browsing my social media news feeds during the Raya break, I saw a rather sad news piece posted by someone I know about a five month old baby who died in a car accident in Dungun because the baby was flung out of the car as there was no proper restraining done. The baby was being held by the grandmother in the rear seat of the car, instead of sitting in a baby chair.

There are no such thing as child seat laws in Malaysia. Even the requirement to use rear seat belts was only introduced in 2009, and adoption as well as enforcement remain poor. Forget airbags – the primary safety feature in the case of a car accident is the seatbelt. Airbags are only meant to be a supplementary restraint system, hence the acronym SRS. But a seatbelt is meant to safely hold an adult body in place – it will not work for the small body of an infant, toddler or a small child.

It’s been proven time and time again – the statistics show that a child who is in a vehicle that gets into an accident will face the possibility of significantly more injuries or even fatality than a child who is in a child seat. A recent crash test conducted by MIROS shows an adult passenger will not have the required strength to prevent an infant or a child from being thrown forward during a collision at any speed applied.

Yes, no matter how strong you think you are, your arms are not as good as proper belts. According to AAM, an unsecured infant weighing 7 kg a crash speed of just 50km/h will be thrown forward at a force that’s equivalent to an adult falling from a five-(5) storey building!

However, obviously there are many who simply still do not use chlid seats. Why do parents and guardians continue to let their loved ones travel in an unsafe manner?

There are a few reasons for this. Here are some of the usual suspects.

1. Child seats are too expensive

With the rising cost of living these days, some parents choose to forgo child seats. However, should we really compromise on a child’s safety?

Child seats can be had for as low as RM150 these days. I even saw one going for RM97 after discount recently. That’s cheaper than most people spend on cigarettes in a single month. For these more affordable “Made in Malaysia” child seats, just make sure they are SIRIM approved.

An alternative would be to look on local classifieds websites or even parenting forums or Facebook groups to buy good condition used ones. You also need to check if the child seat has been in an accident before as the structure might be damaged. Don’t buy something too old as the plastic may no longer be structurally sound. And give it a good wash, of course.

Whatever you do, DON’T buy the item below thinking that it is a low cost solution! It may be cheap, but it’s just a bunch of straps and fabric stitched together to appear like a makeshift “child seat”.

2. Child seats take up too much space (i.e. my car is too small)

Unfortunately this is a real problem for many and it is a problem that runs much too deep to be able to fix easily. Unlike a lot of the other reasons here that are ‘first world problems’, this one is not. In a nutshell, a safe mode of transportation is basically still out of each for many.

A child seat will take up an entire adult’s seating space, and a lot of people can only afford a car that can seat five max. In fact, getting roofed transport like an old Kelisa or Kenari instead of going around on a motorcycle is already a big upgrade. Our public transport system is not really up to the mark yet, so you have to bring your kids around with a car – if you’re lucky enough to have a car in the first place. Otherwise it’s a balancing act on the motorcycle for you.

Interestingly, the government actually wants people to have more kids. Women, Family and Community Development Minister, Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim told the press recently that the government was studying proposals to give incentives for Malaysians to have more kids in order to address a rapid decline in births.

The 2012 number is 2.1 children per woman compared to 3 per woman in 2000, and Rohani says this will cause problems with a shortage of workforce in Malaysia in 20 to 30 years. But how are we going to fit all these kids into the small 5 seater sedans or hatchbacks that a lot of people are limited to in terms of affordability?

A search for 7 seater cars on CarBase.my reveals that the cheapest 7 seater in the country is the Perodua Alza 1.5 Standard MT, which costs RM50,837.50. But the cheapest 5 seater is the Perodua Viva 660 BX MT, at an incredibly low price of RM21,144.80. That’s a massive, massive price difference!

3. I don’t need it, I drive really carefully when my child is in the car

Anyone who really believes this needs a reality check because no matter how carefully you drive, you are sharing the road with plenty of other motorists and not everyone is as careful and conservative as you.

Imagine you’re driving with your family on a rainy day, the roads are wet, and a car spins out right in front of you. Everything happens so fast that you’re unable to react and you cannot avoid slamming into him. I bet at that moment you’ll wish you’d have put your child in a child seat.

4. My child does not want to sit in a child seat

This would not even be an issue if the government makes child seats a legal requirement. As a result, many parents who don’t face any of the problems above still choose to carry their child in their arms.

I believe that this is just a matter of the child getting used to sitting in a car seat from the very beginning. My son is 20 months old now and he has always been in a car seat. He graduated from a rear facing Maxi Cosi Pebble to a rear facing Britax Max-Fix before he turned one year old and still sits in his car seat until today.

What we do is try to cap car journeys to 45 minutes max, and if he really gets agitated we’ll stop somewhere for a break. We’ve done KL to Penang and KL to Singapore journeys with him completely sitting still in the car seat.

5. Who needs child seats? I got child bed!


There are also parents who want the best for their child and misguidedly decide that a child seat is too restrictive and uncomfortable for the child. The comfort of their child is the number one priority for them. As a result, ridiculous things like this “car bed” sell like hot cakes on online shops.

I don’t want to even begin to imagine what would happen to a child lying down on this type of “car bed” in an accident. The shocking thing is that it seems to getting massive amount of shares, likes and ‘interested’ comments this item is getting on social media, this means there are a lot of people interested in buying it.

6. My wife’s arms are as good as the belts in a car seat

Like we said earlier, tests show that an adult passenger will not have the required strength to prevent an infant or a child from being thrown forward during a collision at any speed applied.

It’s simple physics. Trying to hold a small baby in a car crash at 50km/h would be like trying to lift 8 bags of cement at the same time. It’s simply not possible.

7. My child is big enough not to sit in a car seat

Like we said earlier, seat belts in cars are designed for adult bodies. Even if it appears that your child can wear a seatbelt properly, the seat belt could be sitting on areas like their tummy or neck, which are not the strongest parts of their bodies, instead of where seat belts are supposed to lie – their hips, chest and shoulder.

In the UK, there are legal requirements in place where a child has to first use a Group 0+ seat (up to 13kg), then move to a Group 1 seat (9-18kg), and then use a booster seat up to 12 years old or taller than 135cm. We do not have such laws but this would be a good guideline. If you want to save money, you can go for ‘convertible’ seats that combine both Group 0+ and Group 1 sizes in one seat.

This is of course just the minimum. Since everyone’s body is different, if adult seat belts don’t seem to rest on the right places on your child even after the thresholds, continue to use your booster seat.


Do I need ISOFIX?

No you don’t need ISOFIX. You can use a child seat that is secured by a seat belt too. But a child seat is only safe if it is secured properly, otherwise it will just become a projectile in a car crash.

AA surveys show that child seats that are fitted with the adult seatbelts are typically 70% to 80% misfitted with around 30% being seriously misfitted.

ISOFIX’s purpose is to fix this problem. It minimises installation errors, but if your car does not have ISOFIX points, you just need to make sure you learn how to secure your child seat properly.

For your next car, use CarBase.my’s advanced search feature to look for cars with ISOFIX points.

This is what a child goes through in an accident







I think watching what happens in these videos would say it best. Once you’ve decide to put your child in a car seat where he or she belongs, you might want to read up on front facing versus rear facing child seats – these videos will help show you the difference. A child should be kept in a rear-facing child seat for as long as possible before graduating to a front-facing one.

I believe in something called “extended rear facing” where I intend to keep my child in a rear-facing position for as long as possible. I went through a lot of hassle parallel-importing the Britax Max Fix that I use myself because no one carried it locally – it is pretty huge, supports ISOFIX, and fits a toddler up to 18 kg in a rear-facing position, which is longer than usual. You can keep a child rear facing up to 4 or 5 years old, if the situation is right.

I hope that this article helps raise some awareness on the importance of child seats in Malaysia. If you know someone who has a child and doesn’t use child seats, please share this with them.

露西背後真正的意涵

今天終於去看了露西了,因為去看之前,完全沒有做功課,也沒看過預告。
只聽說是一部科幻,但卻又不是科幻的哲學電影?

好吧,反正我就是去看了。看到一半的時候,我就完全理解了這部片背後最深最深的意涵。

不是人類被賦予的命運、不是細胞的演進、更不是什麼未來世界的可能性。
那些都是打嘴砲,也許腦部運用 20% 的海豚可以控制聲納,但我絕對不相信腦部強力開發可以強到讓自己變成超人。

而事實就是,這部片其實在描述的是吸毒後的迷幻世界
最大的意義就是告訴我們,吸食毒品後你將會...!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

整部片大致分成 10 個部分,分別是 10%~99% 及 100%

10 %
首先,是一開始露西不小心被踢爆肚子,而吸收到了毒品!
開始幻想自己輕飄飄~~~輕飄飄的,好像在飛一樣。
這就是吸毒最常見的症狀,然後習慣了毒品的感覺之後,露西開始想辦法要逃離牢房,因為吸毒後,腦袋變得清醒。
露西也順利了讓自己脫身。


20%
露西開始不會感覺到疼痛,這也是毒品所帶來的好處。
為什麼我說是好處呢?
這就是止痛效果啊!醫院在用的止痛藥也是毒品,只是用在醫學用途,則稱為【管制藥品】。
所以他才能在不麻醉的情況下,開刀取出藥袋。


30%
可以開始控制一些特殊波?
如果你相信了,那就大錯特錯了。

事實上毒品已經開始發威了,這階段的露西開始進入自己的幻想世界
她幻想自己跟世界上最聰明的人通電話,開始胡言亂語。
以為自己懂得中文,還印了一份中文的藥單給室友。


40%
露西準備前往巴黎。
幻想自己不是自己,而是另一個人,幻想自己頭髮變成黑色。
坐在飛機上,他開始幻想自己一個人可以使用兩台電腦,但那兩台電腦根本當機了阿= =  http://ppt.cc/KW9q
旁邊的人都看傻了,他還自顧自的在玩電腦...
最後毒癮退了,他開始感到痛苦難耐....
跑去廁所,偷偷吸毒.......

這時的露西已經沒救了,因為,她 上 癮 了


50%
露西離開醫院後,駕著警車,這是她第一次開車...
恩,跟很多毒犯、酒駕犯一樣,無照駕駛。
跟很多毒犯一樣,成為交通毒瘤!
開始逆向狂飆,跑給警察追,無視其他用路人的安全!


60%~99%
這時候,因為已經吸太多毒了,開始幻想他自己是超人
活在自己的世界,幻想他自己可以用念力讓別人無法動彈等等...
口無遮攔的到處訴說別人的隱私。
誇張踰矩的行徑,已經讓別人受不了她了...


100%
看到這裡,我直接笑噴了.....
他一口氣吸了3包半的毒品。
 最後.....最後......最後..............

居 然 幻 想 自 己 是 一 顆      隨 身 碟...


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

心得:

看完的想法就是,這就是一部反毒宣導影片。

用了很誇張的科幻手法,讓大家印象深刻

電影最後一句話:「你知道怎麼做了嗎?」

我第一瞬間的反應就是「絕對不能吸毒= =」阿某ㄟ起校....

配上最近很夯的房東事件,很巧妙的告訴大家 不能碰毒!否則,你原本美好的人生,最終變成(隨身碟!?)。

Hello Kitty is NOT a cat

Hello Kitty is in fact not a cat, or a British schoolgirl, but a combination of both.

In the midst of speculation surrounding her identity (Is she a cat? Is she a human?), Japanese creator Sanrio has confirmed that the global phenomenon worth an annual $5 billion, is in fact a mixture of the two.



Sanrio recently revealed that she is a British schoolgirl named Kitty White and lives just outside London.

However, when RocketNews24 asked further about Hello Kitty's identity, the company's response was: "We never said she was a human."

Sanrio explains that Hello Kitty in an example anthropomorphization i.e. attributing human characteristics to things that aren't human, in this case a cat. Still with us? Good.

In this way, Hello Kitty is a mix of both human and cat characteristics, just like Mickey Mouse is a mix of human and mouse characteristics - simple!

Sanrio was also asked why Hello Kitty had no mouth, to which the company replied: "We never said Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth", going on to reveal that she does have a mouth, but it is not depicted most of the time.

Hello Kitty不是貓

歪腰~Hello Kitty不是貓,是少女?

Ice Bucket Challenge? Just an Idiotic act...

Few of my own point:

First, it doesn't look like charity anymore, its become some idiotic challenge (I dare U) GAME
Second, you are not celebrities, nobody really care about it, u just make yourself a clown to the world.
Third, its waste of water, you can just donate the money. True Charity beauty come from heart.
Forth, there are more people die from AIDS and others disease than the ASL. ASL is not the only decese that's kill!! And ALS is so rare in ASIA!!!! Why help/support others while your own country need more help??
Fifth, It just a celebrities marketing gimmick

Base on the rules I found online:
  1. Nominate few friends name for the challenge
  2. Do the ICE bucket pouring to test drive on the disease and video it
  3. Post the video on social site & SPAM the #hashtag
  4. Donate $$ http://www.alsa.org/ or maybe not...As the rule stated, u can ignore the donate if you do the stupid ice bucket challenge, if not you have to donate USD$100. This mean "everyone" who do the ice bucket challenge can skip this step!! 











The real charity should be come from the heart, the true beauty, not challenged nor challenge/force others to do it. Others I see is all just for fun/fame/trend....

40歲後,最好封印起來的三句話


「接下來的人生,該怎麼過才好呢?」
「該把什麼視為人生終點?又該把幾歲定為人生顛峰?」

我將自己所抱持的疑問,透過本書與大家一同思考。

首先,我把自己整理得出的答案介紹給大家,那就是「人生的顛峰在70歲」;同時,我希望傳達給各位一個重要訊息——「你的人生現在才開始」。

40歲一般給人的印象是一個人生的轉捩點,也是走下坡路的開始;但是,這麼想未免也太過寂寥。倘若換個角度思考,告訴自己:「70歲才是人生顛峰」,把40出頭視為新的起點,那麼不就有可能全力衝刺,迎向光輝燦爛的70歲了嗎?

詳細內容將在接下來為各位介紹,當中也包括我自己對於「如何一輩子都活躍在第一線」的摸索。


「至少還想活躍個30年。」

我是這幾年才有這個想法,之前,我一直認真計畫要「50歲退休,然後進大學念書」。

十幾歲便開始工作的我,比一般人都還要早出社會,不曾享受過理所當然的大學青春歲月。正因如此,我想體驗一步一腳印地求學,換上學生這個擁有某種特權的身分生活看看。

然而,看著日漸衰老的雙親,我的想法改變了。

我的父母大半輩子以來並沒有隨心所欲地任性過活,不過也沒有特別花心思為自己的老年生活做準備。或許因為如此,當病魔意外地找上身而不得不面對自己的年老力衰時,他們感到不知所措。

身為兒子的我當然負起照護的責任,也不曾感到不耐煩或責怪他們,但他們卻有著不同的心思,時不時對我說出這句很傷感的話——


「對不起啊。」

我的老爸老媽對於大可盡情依賴的兒子,懷抱的竟然是抱歉的心情。
