赖昌星 Jul 26, 2011

Steve,

我知道你根本就不看中文媒体的报道,因此不知赖昌星是何人。再说,这几天新闻媒体根本就顾不上他了。本来这个文化程度只有小学三年级的人,谁也不会想到他居然能成为中国乃至国际的新闻人物。

可敬的温州人 Jul 27, 2011

以前,我对温州人的印象主要局限于“善于经商”。但7.23事件之后发生的许多事情,令我对温州人刮目相看,肃然起敬。中国的希望就在这样的老百姓身上。他们才是真正的“共和国脊梁”!

教育事业的堕落 Aug 13, 2011

重庆渝中区状元考上北大 缴不起学费
http://news.qq.com/a/20110806/000308.htm#p=1

既然北大医学院是有才无钱莫进来,何不试一试哈佛大学医学院和约翰霍普金斯?尽管这些大学每年学费四、五万美元,但德才兼备的穷孩子完全有可能拿到全额奖学金。美国许多大学的口号是,只要你考得上,我们就让你上得起!北大也只不过是“出国预备班”,何不索性一步到位?也许我这话听起来有点像“何不食肉糜”,但不一定没道理。

教育部新闻发言人:没钱就别接受高等教育
http://www.ycy.com.cn/article/jyyw/200706/16552.html
据新华社2006年3月6日报道,教育部发言人王旭明根据两会期间代表们反映的“上学贵”的问题回复说:“人们对学费问题应当转变观念。在计划经济时代,孩子从小学上到大学花的钱很少,因为国家都给包了,但是在市场经济时代,形势已经发生变化。非义务教育阶段的教育已经成了家庭的一种消费,既然是消费,就要根据自己的经济、智力实力来选择。北大、清华这些优质教育资源是有限的,自然比较贵,不是所有人都消费得起的。 就好比逛市场买东西,如果有钱,可以去买1万元一套的衣服;如果没钱,就只能去小店,买100元一套的衣服穿。现在很多人不考虑自己实力如何,都想让孩子往好学校里挤,这是非理性的,也是形成‘上学贵’观念重要来由之一。”

他这个状元的级别还不够 Aug 13, 2011

要是四川省的状元,北大就来抢了。那时,北大恐怕又抢不过香港的大学了。在香港的大学面前,北大已经沦为二流大学。
教育部发言人说话太没水平,说这番话是2006年。要是换了现在,恐怕不敢这么说,当然,也不过是“不敢说”而已。

因财施教 Aug 14, 2011

重庆渝中区状元应该已经很棒了。重庆渝中区状元与四川省状元相比,考分恐怕也差不了多少。北大不来抢,华西医科大学也可以来抢一抢啊。这位学生如果是纽约市或洛杉矶市某个区的状元,进名校肯定没问题,而且不必担心学费问题。

教育部不但说话太没水平,实际上做的也没水平。在如今一切向钱看的大环境下,高等学府已经沾满了铜臭味。上不起就不让上,势必会埋没人才。这样还想赶超世界水平?据说国家每年拨给北大、清华的资金并不少,不知用到哪里去了?也许很多高校都把钱拿去盖雄伟华丽的校门去了。美国许多大学根本连校门都没有,照样能培养出诺贝尔奖得主。

An unforgivable mistake Sep 26, 2011

http://community.travelchinaguide.com/forum2.asp?i=65550

http://society.people.com.cn/h/2011/0911/c226561-1662993692.html

近日,疯狂英语创始人李阳陷入“家暴”传闻,却一直没有正面回应。前日凌晨,李阳的妻子KIM还在微博上透露,正在学习中华人民共和国家庭暴力防治法。

而就在教师节当天下午,李阳用中英双语发微博承认家暴并正式道歉:“我向KIM正式道歉,我对她实施了家庭暴力,造成了身体和心灵上的严重伤害,对孩子也产生了不良的影响。我也向所有人道歉,我将深刻反省我的行为。I wholehearted apologize to my wife Kim and my girls for committing domestic violence. This has caused them serious physical and mental damage。”

25分钟后,他又补充:“按照KIM的要求,我们正在接受心理咨询师的专业帮助。在这里,我再次向大家表示深深的道歉。Sorry to let you down!(抱歉,让你失望了)”当晚7时多,他还转发自己的微博说:“为了不误导大家的英语,特别更正如下:‘wholehearted’应该是‘wholeheartedly’。副词 adv. 全心全意地。I wholeheartedly believe that you will be very successful. 我坚信你将会非常成功!I will back you up wholeheartedly. 我全心全意地支持你。”对此,有网友调侃道:“李阳还真敬业,道歉还不忘教英语。”

VAWA Sep 27, 2011

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violence_Against_Women_Act



The Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) is a United States federal law. It was passed as Title IV, sec. 40001-40703 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, H.R. 3355, and signed as Pub.L. 103-322 by President Bill Clinton on September 13, 1994. It provided $1.6 billion to enhance investigation and prosecution of violent crimes perpetrated against women, imposed automatic and mandatory restitution on those convicted, and allowed civil redress in cases prosecutors chose to leave unprosecuted.



In Texas, the State would prosecute if there were enough physical evidence of abuse, regardless of whether the victim wanted to press charges or not.

So calling 911 is a surefire way of somebody going to jail in case of domestic violence. Most of the time it is the batterer, but sometimes it's both parties involved.



http://www.mytexasdefenselawyer.com/texas-criminal-laws-penalties/domestic-assault-laws/

Domestic Assault / Domestic violence laws: The criminal charges and possible penalties in Texas

Domestic violence is probably treated more seriously than any other misdemeanor offense in Texas. A conviction carries additional fines, the loss of certain rights, and automatically increases any subsequent domestic arrests to felonies.

You can be charged with domestic assault for a range of actions, from threatening a spouse or girlfriend to attacking a family member with a deadly weapon. It isn’t necessary for you to injure the other person to be charged with domestic violence.

Domestic assault is one of the few misdemeanor offenses in Texas for which a police officer can arrest you on the spot without actually witnessing the incident. All the officer needs is probable cause, such as witness statements or evidence of injury, to believe that you made serious threats or committed violence.

The court system also tends to err on the side of caution in family violence cases, allowing a judge to issue a protective order barring you from contact with the family member – meaning you may not be able to return home – immediately after your arrest.

...





http://austin.texascriminalattorneys.com/assault-family-violence.html?gclid=CO-H3O3tvasCFQLu7QodflNcyA

Assault - Misdemeanor
Assault with bodily injury is a class A misdemeanor. It carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine.

Assault - Family Violence - Misdemeanor
Is a class A misdemeanor. It carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine, but it also carries additional baggage. A family violence finding means you:

1. Can never own a firearm or even ammunition. It is a Federal crime to do so.
2. A second family violence charge, in your whole life, is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
3. If placed on probation, cannot seal your record

This Crazy English teacher is truly crazy Sep 27, 2011

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Yang_(Crazy_English)
In September 2011 Li was accused of domestic violence by his American wife Kim. He admitted the accusations were true. On September 20th, 2011, in an interview with Jiang Ying Shuang (姜英爽), a reporter, regarding his domestic violence incident, along with admitting violent wife beating on a number of occasions, Li Yang said the following to Jiang: "At the time (of wife beating), I wanted to kill her"; "Learning western culture doesn't mean western culture is right. I feel Bin Laden's 9.11 bombing is a job well done. 9.11 has been the cheapest war the world ever had. With the least casualties, (it) has drastically changed the world history. This is my point of view. Americans certainly would not agree (with me)" Later in the interview, he said: "The (Chinese) society is a giant brothel. Why businessmen have gatherings? Have sex with prostitutes"; Jiang: "Did you participate ( in prostitution)?" Li: "I have done it a few times"

He shows no remorse whatsoever!

李阳:学习西方文化并不代表西方文化对啊!就像我觉得拉丹“9•11”炸得很好啊,“9•11”是全世界最廉价的战争,死的人最少,但是对世界历史改变最大。这是我的观点,那美国人肯定不同意对吧。

If this crazy guy were in the United States, he would have been arrested right on the spot for merely saying “I wanted to kill her", not to mention the fact that he did have beaten his wife so violently. However, so far, there is no such a law in China that specifically addresses domestic violence. That’s why this crazy guy doesn’t take this matter seriously. In the TV interview, he even started his talking about the domestic violence with a smile.

Prescient Predictions Sep 30, 2011

90% of Americans say economy stinks



http://money.cnn.com/2011/09/30/news/economy/economy_poll/index.htm?hpt=hp_t2


Three years after a financial crisis pushed the country deep into recession, an overwhelming number of Americans -- 90% -- say that economic conditions remain poor.

The number, reported Friday in a new CNN/ORC International Poll, is the highest of Barack Obama's presidency and a significant increase from the 81% who said conditions were poor in June.

The persistent pessimism indicates that Americans are feeling a level of hardship in line with the official statistics. Unemployment stands at 9.1%, economic growth is barely above stall speed, and the housing market remains tied in knots.
