Wow!

Nice! ... But it would have been even more impressive if it had the capability of detecting different kinds of hidden explosives.

Thanks for the book recommendation, redred. Coincidentally, Yueyin also mentioned this book to me the last time we got together, which was but a week ago. From the photos in the links he sent me afterwards, none of the authors looked familiar. It would bound to be an interesting read though.

I just placed an order at joyo.com. The book is only ¥22. But the shipping is exactly 5 times that.

Hi Steve Apr 23, 2012

It is true that haven't been to Beijing don't know one's official ranking is low.

Fortunately you were alive during the "thunderstorm". I am sure you could have contributed a supplement article to it.

The western media are much interesting to talk about Bo Xilai's case nowadays. He was possible kind of the princelings or the opposite. "八月二十五日,以四中几个高干子弟为首,成立“首都红卫兵西城区纠察队”(简称“西纠”),接连发布了十号通令……"

Some social trends in the U.S. Jun 19, 2012

http://inamerica.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/19/asian-americans-more-than-latinos-are-largest-group-of-new-arrivals-in-u-s/?hpt=hp_t2




Asians, more than Latinos, are largest group of new arrivals in U.S.
By Moni Basu, CNN

(CNN) –The immigration debate often centers on stemming the flow of people entering the United States illegally and what to do about securing borders to the south. But here's a fact that goes without much attention: Asians have now taken over Latinos as the largest group of new arrivals every year.

In 2010, 36% of new immigrants were Asians compared to 31% for Hispanics, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

That's a significant change from a decade ago, when 19% of immigrants were Asians and 59% were Hispanics.

"They were already a significant part of the immigration story. It seems like in the last few years they are the most important part of the immigration story," said Karthick Ramakrishnan, a political scientist at the University of California at Riverside, and expert on Asian-American immigration and civic participation.

He said that if the trends continue, Asian-Americans will play greater roles in shaping American society and perhaps, more significantly in an election year, they will have an impact at the polls.

裤子里放屁-两岔了 Nov 28, 2012

http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_t3#/video/crime/2012/11/27/erin-onion-spoof-hits-china.cnn

"... And China's People's Daily ran with the story, publishing a 55-page online photo spread. 55, everybody! That's about 54 new pictures of Kim Jong Un, in his sexiest moments. Now, there's just one problem: the American media source which named Kim Jong Un the sexiest man alive was "the Onion". Now if you don't know, the Onion is a newspaper and a website that publishes satirical stories. So of course it was a joke ..."

《經人》澄清「笨蛋」余光中指媒體誤譯 Nov 28, 2012

英國《經濟學人》以「bumbler」描述馬英九總統,引發台風波,《經濟學人》亞洲版主編 Dominic Ziegler 指出,這是台灣媒體不負責任地錯誤翻譯(irresponsibly mistranslated),「bumbler」一字只是形容一個人「行事猶豫」,絕對沒有侮辱的意思。

《經濟學人》16日刊出以「Ma the bumbler」為標題,台灣媒體將「bumbler」一字翻譯為「笨蛋」,引發爭議。

馬英九今天到高雄市,拜訪中英文造詣高深的國立中山大學榮譽退休教授余光中,雙方都談到有關報道。

馬英九說,《經濟學人》主編已說明澄清並沒有惡意。他不會介意,身為元首,大家有意見為正常的現象。

余光中表示,「bumbler」部分台灣媒體的翻譯有問題,應是「拙」的意思,也有踏實、負責任和不輕舉妄動的精神。

余光中說,這沒什麼負面的意思,就像是大智若愚、大巧若拙和愚公移山等意思,是部分台灣媒體的翻譯有問題。余光中也舉出知名庭園「拙政園」為例,並非意味著笨拙的意思,為馬英九打氣。(星島新聞)

發帖者按∶問題是在英語世界中,似乎是沒有“大智若愚、大巧若拙”這個概念。

"笨蛋" 到不至于,"笨拙" 便足以。

其实 "蠢材" 也行,一般形容一个人处理事情笨拙无能,且并不诋毁他的天资指数。

那麼... Nov 28, 2012

給經濟學人罵"笨拙" 或 "蠢材" ,應該是啞忍就是,這才是“大智若愚、大巧若拙”,要動用翻譯大師來“護駕”,真正成“笨蛋”了。

pk,

I have no idea. And I wouldn't get involved and either support or criticize any side in a situation like this, mainly because I have zero knowledge of Taiwan politics.

All I can say is to use the word bumble, blunder, bungle, or botch, indeed is not irreverent or disrespectful. It only hints at being incompetent ... None of these words are derogatory, for sure.

You ought to know - your English is excellent.

"蠢材" Nov 28, 2012

BTW, I was not entirely serious about this term. From my experience, one typically uses it with very good friends in a joking manner - consider it a term of endearment.

But in a different situation, this name could be very offensive.

無涉及任何政治 Nov 28, 2012

單從語言用字、翻譯觀點看,愈是急於解釋,就愈是麻煩。“bumble”一詞用在普通人身上,當然不是什麼,但是來形容一“地方首長”,當然是有“不敬”的成份,若用在“國家元首”身上,外交部必發表聲明,說“傷害感情”之類的話。
