Steve,

What a great story by Oprah Winfrey! Last time when I was in China, huge Louis Vuitton ads were all over the place in big cities. I am wondering where these bags are actually made!

Today, the entertainment news reports that:

2018 Wildfires in Western US Aug 21

《美西野火烧不尽》

Here is an update about 3 hours after my post:

‘Best chance’ to end largest wildfire in California history within reach By Sarah Ravani 3 hrs ago


今 年 火 势 特 别 猛,
加 州 烧 到 华 盛 顿(州)。
成 千 上 万 不 知 数,
雾 霾 指 标 超 北 京。
野 火 不 管 国 境 线,
已 经 进 入 卑 诗 省。

结果怎么样?森林和住在森林里的生灵不算,成千房产烧毁,有人伤亡。光加州就已烧掉四百多万平方公里(差不多从杭州烧到山东)。华盛顿州七月份统计就有九百多起,现在是八月下旬了,一直还在烧,统计好像也没意思了。夹在两州之间的俄勒冈也肯定野火上千。

现在西雅图的空气质量还不如北京:
Seattle's air quality 'worse than Beijing' as wildfires scorch eastern Washington
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/15/seattles-air-quality-worse-than-beijing-as-wildfires-scorch-eastern-washington.html

A total of 5,544 fires had burned an area of 1,064,227.6 acres (4,306.776 km2)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_California_wildfires

小火每天上百堆,大火赶快派人灭。
一百公顷算大火,请看全国野火协:
Active Wildfires in Washington and Oregan as of Aug. 21, 2018
https://gacc.nifc.gov/nwcc/information/firemap.aspx

这是“大火”的定义:
“A Large Fire, as defined by the National Wildland Coordinating Group, is any wildland fire in timber 100 acres or greater and 300 acres or greater in grasslands/rangelands or has an Incident Management Team assigned to it.

老孙,

今早起来想看看火势控制了没有,结果不但没有控制,反而看到有条“十四英尺的巨蟒逃走了”的报道。看来连续三个多星期的加州野火,新闻报道行业也疲(皮)掉了。
......加州野火年年有,可今年来得早而且扩散的面积很广,南北都有。往年野火大都在优诗美地以南,今年优诗美地以北三百多英里的 Redding 也烧的不可开交。那里从7月9号到27号连续近20天气温都在华氏100°F度以上,其中7月26日是113°F,就是45°C,所以那天那里烧掉好几村。

全球气候趋暖是大火经久不衰的根源。靠人力灭火实为杯水车薪。希望老天赶紧下几场暴雨,但在可预见的两周内机会仍然渺茫。

Leonard Bernstein at 100 Aug 25

LEONARD BERNSTEIN (August 25, 1918 – October 14, 1990) was a world-renowned conductor and composer, and one of classical music's icons of the 20th century. He was Music Director of the New York Philharmonic and conducted the world's major orchestras, leaving behind an enormous legacy of audio and video recordings. His books, as well as the much-beloved televised Young People's Concerts with the New York Philharmonic, established him as a leading educator.

Excitement over Acquisition of a Yixing Teapot Aug 29

《宜兴名家入手藏》

昨 日 喜 得 蒋 彦 亭
六 瓣 圆 囊 分 均 匀
壶 顶 一 颗 花 苞 钮
款 底 一 方 小 篆 印
芋 芽 初 发 伸 出 流
竹 根 倒 插 弯 成 柄
包 浆 刷 净 有 几 层
新 昌 大 佛 赐 龙 井

*Notes:
蒋彦亭(1890一1943)是清末民初宜兴紫砂艺人,手艺高超,喜师造化。可惜他大部分时间为生活所迫受雇于上海滩的商行,为老板仿制明清名家的古董壶,而自己少有时间创作。(这似乎有点像翻译整天翻别人的东西,感慨系之!)结果他一生最大成就可能就是培养了侄女蒋蓉,后者成为少有的(女性)工艺大师。中国美术史上因强调仿古而扼杀的创新之意数不胜数,他可谓一例。

Reflections on NBC News about harassment charges against a head abbot from Fujian Aug 30

《有感于美国 NBC News 报道大和尚出了大事》

三 十 多 年 未 设 厂, 投 资 仅 限 固 海 防。
金 门 马 尾 天 天 轰, 教 育 科 技 摆 后 方。
只 见 山 头 荔 枝 红, 不 见 学 者 上 讲 堂。
但 求 福 建 出 好 茶, 不 求 莆 田 出 和 尚。
如 今 和 尚 入 了 党, 摇 身 一 变 成 方 丈。
自 从 林 纾 林 语 堂, 闽 南 人 才 日 日 荒。

看来原因就在于:学诚和尚 学得还不够诚。给他取法名的真是个高僧!

古人曰,"出淤泥而不染,濯清涟而不妖"。佛门本是清净之地,如今却也藏污纳垢。那两位举报花和尚的居然是出家多年的清华大学工程博士。可谓,真正才厚的去学诚,学诚却改学姓徐的才厚。这个社会真是让人搞不懂!icon_eek.gif

据报道,1988年福建莆田广化寺方丈退居,赵朴初“力排众议”,举荐仍在学习中的释学诚担任住持。那年学诚23岁,看来六根未净,岂能皈依我佛?

The Ordination Ceremony at the "Shaolin Temple" Sep 1

《少林寺》昄依佛门受戒典礼

That reminds me of the oath-taking ceremony in the movie Shaolin Temple when Jet Li (Li Lianjie) was asked by the new abbot to take a vow of celibacy among others:

。。。。。。
方丈:“戒淫欲,汝今能持否?”
小李:......(看看手中定情物,犹豫不决。)
方丈:“汝能持否??”
小李:......(看看门边牧羊女,更加犹豫不决。)
方丈:“能持否??”
小李:“能持!”

方丈:(转头向翻译)“给我翻!”
翻译:(找谷歌)“Can you hold it?”

小李:(who understands and speaks English now) "Hold what?"

I Vow to Thee Sep 1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yxUp08IK_g


I Vow to Thee, My Country (Charlotte Church)


I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above
Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love

The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test
That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best
The love that never falters, the love that pays the price
The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice

%20WashCathedral_Exterior_Glisson.jpg


And there's another country, I've heard of long ago
Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know

We may not count her armies, we may not see her King
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering
And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase
And her ways are ways of gentleness and all her paths are peace

Aria "Ombra Mai Fu" Sep 2


Frondi tenere e belle
del mio platano amato
per voi risplenda il fato.
Tuoni, lampi, e procelle
non v'oltraggino mai la cara pace,
né giunga a profanarvi austro rapace.

Ombra mai fu
di vegetabile,
cara ed amabile,
soave più.


Tender and beautiful fronds
of my beloved plane tree
let fate smile upon you.
May thunder, lightning, and storms
never disturb your dear peace,
nor may you by blowing winds be profaned.

Never was a shade
of any plant
dearer and more lovely,
or more sweet.
