I guess this profession is somewhat different Nov 11, 2013

... than the desktop publishing skills that some translator job descriptions require?



Endangered Career #1: Desktop Publisher


2010 - 2020 Outlook*: -15 percent,
3,300 lost jobs

Brick-and-mortar bookstores have almost become as rare as unicorns. Newspapers are closing down or laying off entire departments. And desktop publishers are the ones who design the layouts for these dying industries.

Why It's Nearing Extinction: "No big surprise here," says Julie Bauke, career strategist and president at The Bauke Group, a career coaching and consulting firm. "Print publications are on the decline, and with them, so is the need for desktop publishers."

"Additionally, the software used in desktop publishing is easier to use and more powerful than ever before, making it easier for relative novices to utilize," says Bauke.



Just curious. Never had any experience in this field; so I haven't the foggiest.

土豪复兴 Nov 13, 2013

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24677113


A new word has suddenly become wildly popular in China - "tuhao" - which loosely translated means "nouveau riche". There have been more than 100 million references to the word "tuhao" on social media since early September.
---
This new usage of the term took off in September after a widely-shared joke about a rich, but unhappy man, who goes to a Buddhist monk for advice, expecting to be told to live a more simple life. The monk replies instead with the phrase: "Tuhao, let's be friends!"

Easter Song Apr 19, 2014

Easter Song
By George Herbert (1593–1633)

I GOT me flowers to straw Thy way,
I got me boughs off many a tree;
But Thou wast up by break of day,
And brought’st Thy sweets along with Thee.

The sunne arising in the East,
Though he give light, and th’ East perfume,
If they should offer to contest
With Thy arising, they presume.

Can there be any day but this,
Though many sunnes to shine endeavour?
We count three hundred, but we misse:
There is but one, and that one ever.

Were You There? Apr 20, 2014

One of my favourite Easter songs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNg-ROsQItE
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Were_You_There

Were you there when they crucified my Lord? 当我主受难,你是否在场?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? Oh! 当我主受难,你是否在塲?啊!
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 有时想起就不禁战栗,战栗,战栗。
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? 当我主受难,你是否在塲?

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree? 当我主受钉,你是否在场?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree? Oh! 当我主受钉,你是否在塲?啊!
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 有时想起就不禁战栗,战栗,战栗。
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree? 当我主受钉,你是否在塲?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb? 当我主被葬,你是否在场?
Were you there when they laid Him to the tomb? Oh! 当我主被葬,你是否在塲?啊!
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 有时想起就不禁战栗,战栗,战栗。
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb? 当我主被葬,你是否在塲?

http://math.about.com/od/Exercises/ss/Quadratic-Equation-WP.htm



I had a habit of always mulling over the graphs of linear and parabolic equations when I was in junior high. Based on the equations' coefficients(plus, minus, value, etc.), I would visualize how their slopes, intercepts, vertices, openings, etc. morphed from the equations' basic graph form, and how they shifted up, down, left, and right from the origin (0, 0) in the Cartesian coordinate plane. Rather than respectively substituting x=0, y=0 into the equation to derive where it would intersect with the x and y axes, I preferred to do it the hard way and think through the process of how the basic function morphed in shape and shifted in position.

Anyway, it was kind of a weird obsession of mine at that age, but was probably also a good exercise for the brain. On some level, it may have prepared me for my job as an engineer in later years.icon_wink.gif

Thank you, Steve, for such a subtle recall; I could almost vividly portray the silent gesture while reading through your linesicon_smile.gif. I was actually hesitant to post the subject article as "妙文", although I found it very interesting(and for Easter); I even ventured to substitute the fun factor(f) and the number of kids(k) with other factors.

To me, the Cartesian coordinate system is not merely a tool for data analysis; the concept behind the Cartesian Coordinates has had a great impact on my thinking/reasoning. I often project matters to different quadrant sorely base on my sensing or instinct (not equations, which I’m not capable to formulate icon_wink.gif ), and apply logical reasoning on them, respectively. Of course, multipronged issues would never be governed by logic in reality.

But, Steve, your passage enlightened me about exploring different angles to outline matters as a whole on the Cartesian coordinate planeicon_smile.gif.

Gratitude Dec 30, 2017

重谢

李公尚

圣诞节的前一天,我从底特律乘美国达美(Delta)航空公司的飞机回华盛顿DC。这趟班机是由东京飞往华盛顿DC,经停底特律的。飞机上的乘客大都是日本人。我邻座是位年轻人,和出门旅行时西装革履、油头粉面的其他日本人毫无二致。只是我和他打招呼,他冷漠地看了我一眼,把目光转向窗外 ......

《重谢》李公尚


周丹师妹,

盛夏等到冬,不见你出动。
今天露面了,也不打个招呼;你好大的架子!
是我哪里说错话了吗,还是师傅有什么吩咐,不许跟我说话?
---
这篇文章我竟从头到尾看完了。评论几句:

即使作者的用词有某些创作成份,我相信他叙述的大致经过是真实的。我不理解为什么有近一半的留言者持怀疑、甚至质问的态度。

而国人当中 '怀疑一切者' 之众多,正是作者要针砭的时代之顽疾。文章+留言,活龙活现地勾画出一个大问号:中国人怎么了?

从这点看,此文可与莫泊桑(Guy de Maupassant)的短篇相媲美,尤其是最后的“一元小费”。

师兄见怪了 Dec 31, 2017

老沈:

不好意思,一直在潜水。不过大家的讨论我都在看的。先是九月份度假,去了美国东部,十月份到现在一直没空过。趁着人工翻译还有人买,努力挣钱吧。

说到《重谢》这篇文章,我相信作者写的是亲身经历。文学城必须翻墙才能看,留言的不知道有多少是翻墙过去留的。

不过我对80后、90后们很有信心,毕竟他们没有经过文革,小小年纪已经跑到海外见世面去了,相信他们会从自己的亲身经历得到教益。

放心过年了 Dec 31, 2017

你再不理睬,我还以为莫非已经被师傅踢出山门了。
看这一回贴,我可以放心过年了。

上次听说是你要出门旅游一个月,可没想到你是来美国。现在再跟你讲有假客气之嫌,可下次来的话,先通报一声。

这趟美国之行,感想如何?我想你大约很失望吧?因为十年前我陪同国内来美考察的一批三四十人,从东到西转了一大圈,当时他们当中就有不少人大失所望。如今又过十年,中国日新月异,美国老骥伏枥,但毕竟显得步伐缓慢了。

文学城也要翻墙才能看呀?我倒从不注意。这么说是到了美国的那些中国人习性未改,反而跟不上国内进步的步伐了。有可能,要不我每次回去都显得土气得无地自容。

新年快乐!多保重!

YouTube 上还有一段未经剪辑长达3分45秒的视频。视频中,那女人骂了许多只有下流男人才骂得出口的污言秽语。如果此事发生在美国,情况又会怎样呢?

这种熊家长熏陶出来的孩子将会怎么样,可想而知。
