zt “A Breakup Letter to Snow From the City of Boston" 2/15/2015 22:36
http://www.boston.com/news/odd/2015/02/09/breakup-letter-snow-from-the-city-boston/wHekQLl2KiWqGYHBreZaPN/story.html?p1=well_Snow_subheadline_hp

Dear Snow,

I could say “it’s not you, it’s me,” but that would be the biggest lie I’ve told since I promised the British they wouldn’t get shot at if they showed up by sea. It is you. It’s 100 percent you.

The Definitive Guide to Snow Removal Personality Types
But it wasn’t always you. Things started off so well between us; you were so novel, so beautiful, so calming and clean when we met. Remember how exciting it was when I shut down for the first time, and we skipped school and work, and frolicked through my streets together? The way you made me feel so pretty, so refreshed, and seasonal?

I’ll never forget those wonderful first days. But that was the early stage of the relationship; now you’re dirty all the time, you never clean up after yourself, and you’ve grown even colder.

At this point, I’m just feeling...well, smothered. You won’t leave me alone. I tell you I need space and you just keep showing up. How do you not see that by always hanging around, you’re making me turn inward? I don’t even leave the house anymore because I know you’ll be waiting outside my door.

Even if you were to back off immediately, we’d still be totally over. I’m literally up to my neck in dealing with the mess you made. Because of you, I may need to borrow equipment from New York City.

Do you know how embarrassing that is? Those guys already think of me as their inadequate little sister, and now I have to go to them with my gold-domed hat in hand and ask for help?

It’s like you’ve turned into this unstoppable monster. I don’t even know you anymore. You’ve also ruined a lot of my stuff; I can’t find like five-thousand of my cars, my bikes are all buried for the foreseeable future, and you’ve killed every single plant I had.

Also, now is probably a good time to tell you I’ve met someone. His name is Spring, and while it’s long distance right now, he’ll be moving in hopefully sometime around March or April.

Maybe next winter we can be friends again. But until then, please lose my address.

Yours unfondly,

Boston

zt 美国人对中国人的分析 4/01/2014 21:07
据说摘自RAND COMPANY 2005 REPORT:
http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s?__biz=MzA4OTAyODIyOA==&mid=10072069&idx=7&sn=5f4a46e4c04848f053bae1538d71cdb4&scene=2&from=timeline&isappinstalled=0&uin=Mjc0OTA5Njg2Mg%3D%3D

“如果20世纪的中国是一个富裕和统一的国家,我们会有一个完全不同的第一次世界大战,我们就不会有第二次世界大战而是第二次欧洲大战。

  中国能够阻止日本侵略或者打败日本。美国在这些冲突上的花费从根本意义上会减少很多,因为珍珠港事件不会发生。

  我们和整个世界,更不用说10亿中国人,一个多世纪以来,已经为中国的弱小付出了惨重的代价。世界需要一个健康的中国。

  中国的需求对日本走出衰退起到了促进作用。日本状况给世界经济带来了风险。关于这一点,怎么说都不夸张。

  日本巨额的债务会产生多米诺骨牌效应,逐渐波及到全世界。在中国有力的帮助下,危险似乎已经过去。中国全球化给美国带来了很多影响。最明显的是,中国成为美国商品最大的市场。

  可口可乐早就完成了那个看上去像是神话的目标:卖10亿瓶可口可乐;曾经嘲笑中国梦的通用在中国卖了很多的别克汽车,在困难时期,中国带来的利润占通用利润的很大一部分;中国联想购买IBM个人电脑业务,挽救了这个垂死部门的工作岗位。

  中国提供更低价的生活必需品给美国人的生活水平做出了很大的贡献,尤其是对我们不是那么富裕的居民而言。有迹象表明由于能够购买中国低价的出口货物,低收入美国人的生活水平可能提高了5%到10%。

  目前,中国面临著巨大的挑战。中国的银行是我们所知道的世界上最糟糕的银行。中国每一代,都有相当于美国规模的人口从农村涌入城市。每年,都有1200-1300万新工人加入就业大军。在制造业,生产力对就业的影响比我们国家要严重得多。

  到2020年,中国人口老龄化会使工作人口与不工作人口的比率成为世界上最糟糕的,比日本更甚。如果没有特效的新政策的话,中国的经济在那个时期就会狠狠地撞墙。到2020年,以我们的标准来看,它会是一个非常穷的国家。

  中国人缺乏诚信和社会责任感。中国人不了解他们作为社会个体应该对国家和社会所承担的责任和义务。普通中国人通常只关心他们的家庭和亲属,中国的文化是建立在家族血缘关系上而不是建立在一个理性的社会基础之上。

  他们现在最痴迷的就是男女之事。中国人只在乎他们直系亲属的福址,对与自己毫不相关的人所遭受的苦难则视而不见。

  毫无疑问,这种以血缘关系为基础的道德观势必导致自私、冷酷,这种自私和冷酷已经成为阻碍中国社会向前发展的最关键因素。

  在中国,特别强调所谓的人脉,这正反映了中国不是以理性为标准而是以关系为标准的社会。

  这种社会,导致制度无法遵守,诚信无法普及,因为每个人有自己的关系,关系之下,什么事情都可以解决,这就导致了人们可以无视一切,只要有关系就行。

  你如果仔细分析,就会发现这是中国目前社会乱象的最重要的根源之一。

  由此可见,那些整天振振有词讲人脉的人,多么愚蠢可笑。殊不知,正是这种关系,帮助你达到了目的同时,也无时不刻在伤害他人与社会,并最终伤害到自己,形成一种恶性循环。

  大多数中国人从来就没有学到过什么是体面和尊严的生活意义。中国人普遍不懂得如何为了个人和社会的福址去进行富有成效的生活。

  潜意识里,中国人视他们的生活目的就是抬高自己从而获得别人的认知。这样一来,一个人就会对保有面子这样微不足道的欲望感到满足。

  面子是中国人心理最基本的组成部分,它已经成为了中国人难以克服的障碍,阻碍中国人接受真理并尝试富有意义的生活。这个应受谴责的习性使得中国人生来就具有无情和自私的特点,它已成为中国落后的主要原因。

  中国人没有勇气追求他们认为正确的事情。首先,他们没有从错误中筛选正确事物的能力,因为他们的思想被贪婪所占据。再有,就算他们有能力筛选出正确的事情,他们也缺乏勇气把真理化为实践。

  中国人习惯接受廉价和免费的事物,他们总是梦想奇迹或者好运,因为他们不愿意付出努力,他们总想不劳而获。

  很少有中国人明白一个事实,就是威望和成就是通过一步步努力的工作和牺牲实现的,不付出就没有所得。简单来说,如果是为了谋生,那一个人只有去索取;但如果是为了生活,一个人必须要去奉献。

  由于在贫穷的环境下生长并且缺少应有的教育,大多数中国人不懂得优雅的举止和基本的礼貌。他们中的大多数人着装笨拙粗鄙却不感到害羞。他们在青少年时所受的教育就是如何说谎并从别人那里索取,而不是去与别人去分享自己的所有。

  中国是一个物产丰富的国家。但无限制生育政策所带来恶果使得中国成为了无限廉价劳动力的输出国。这些输出也包括那些受过教育的劳力输出,除了他们的教育水平,实则和其他一般苦力没有本质上的区别。

  中国大规模生产的便宜产品降低了输入这些产品的地区的商业信用度。由于技术落后,管理失败,中国制造的单位能耗要比发达国家如日本,美国高出很多。

  因此,随着出口额的增加,中国在扩大生产的同时丧失着宝贵的能源。同时,这种行为也严重的污染了环境,使中国变为全世界最不适宜人类居住的国家。

  目前,中国正在遭受着资本主义社会两大邪恶的折磨,即环境的破坏与人性的丧失。

  由于中国人天生的贪婪本性,它们可以毫无保留地接受资本主义的阴暗面,即无止境的追求利润,而忽视人的尊严。

  中国人对西方的技术与产品地狂热追求,却对西方管理文化所强调的坦率、直接、诚实这些品质漠不关心。

  由于中国文化不鼓励敢于冒险这种优良品质,所以中国人极力避免冒险,他们也不想寻求机会来改善自己的生活。

  中国人对于生活的平衡性和意义性并不感兴趣,相反他们更执迷于对物质的索取,这点上要远远胜于西方人。

  大多数中国人发现他们不懂得精神灵性、自由信仰以及心智健康这样的概念,因为他们的思想尚不能达到一个生命(补:即肉体和灵性的并存)存在的更高层次。他们的思想还停留在专注于动物本能对性和食物贪婪的那点可怜的欲望上。

  在中国人的眼中,受教育不是为了寻求真理或者改善生活质量,而只是身份和显赫地位的象征和标志。

  中国的知识分子从别人那里得到尊敬,并不是因为他们为了别人的幸福做过什么,而只是因为他们获得、占有了相当的知识。事实上,他们中的大多数只不过是一群仅仅通晓考试,却从不关心真理和道德的食客。

  中国的教育体系,很大程度上已经成为一种失败和耻辱。它已经不能够服务于教育本应所服务的对象:社会。

  这个教育体系不能提供给社会许多有用的个体。它只是制造出一群投机分子,他们渴望能够受益于社会所提供的好处,却毫不关心回报。

  中国可以培养出大批的高技能人才,但却很少可以培养出合格的、可以独立主持的管理级专家。

  服务于一个公司或者社会,光有技术是不够的;还需要有勇气、胆量、正直和诚实的领导才能,这恰恰是大多数中国人所缺少的品性。

  正如亚瑟·史密斯——一位著名的西方传教士在一个世纪前所指出的,中国人最缺乏的不是智慧,而是勇气和正直的纯正品性。这个评价,虽然历经百年,如今依旧准确诊断出中国综合症的病因。
  大多数中国毕业生对选择出国,并为外国工作不会感到内疚。事实上,他们首先欠下了中国人民在教育上为他们所做出的牺牲。"

  随着传统文化价值观的破坏和逐步衰弱,大多数的中国人,包括受过教育的人都徘徊在精神和内心世界的路口。

some hightlight:
"Yet China’s GDP per capita is just $9,100, which ranks 122d in the world. U.S. GDP per capita is $49,800, tops among large countries"

Someone comment:
"USA is no longer wealthy!
GDP minus debt is in the reds!
A new born US child is $60,000 in debt!
Americans are born slaves already!"

还有好戏? 4/20/2013 20:59
总的感觉这次警察还是靠运气和居民。空前绝后的地毯式大搜捕:几千人加两架直升飞机搜了一天无果。如果不是那有船房主发现打911当天还真不一定找到嫌犯。房主应是最大的功臣。

还有发现时人已负重伤,警察还要对船发20多枪,差点没了活口。

最后,有了活口虽能套出点内情,但又多了个烫手山药,纳税人将开始为繁长诉讼辩护审批程序买单。其结果可能还无法判他死刑。又是纳税人的钱养他一辈子在监狱。

故今后几个月还有好戏看。

亲历爆炸 4/15/2013 19:02
当时正在 Boylston ST 拍照,突听一声闷巨响,只见左边50米左右升起十米高浓烟。还没完全反应过来,周围人已乱跑尖叫,马上拉紧女儿的手往边街跑,刚跑两步,正前方几十米又一巨响浓烟升起。这时才意识到可能是炸弹。跟着人群撤到Commonwealth Ave 才停下来。这时周围的人都在打手机看手机。警车消防车四处响起。

这时唯一念头是赶快离开BOSTON, 绿线肯定人满为患,走到PARK ST 乘红线被告知已关闭。再走到 MGH 站才上了红线。到家已5:30。

上帝保佑的一天。

zt So God made a banker 2/06/2013 12:45
zt
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/so-god-made-a-banker-2013-02-06?dist=lcountdown

And on the eighth day God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need someone who can flip this for a quick buck.”

So God made a banker.

God said, “I need someone who doesn’t grow anything or make anything but who will borrow money from the public at 0% interest and then lend it back to the public at 2% or 5% or 10% and pay himself a bonus for doing so.”

So God made a banker.

God said, “I need someone who will take money from the people who work and save, and use that money to create a dotcom bubble and a housing bubble and a stock bubble and an oil bubble and a commodities bubble and a bond bubble and another stock bubble, and then sell it to people in Poughkeepsie and Spokane and Bakersfield, and pay himself another bonus.”

So God made a banker.

God said, “I need someone to build homes in the swamps and deserts using shoddy materials and other people’s money, and then use these homes as collateral for a Ponzi scheme he can sell to pensioners in California and Michigan and Sweden. I need someone who will then foreclose on those homes, kick out the occupants, and switch off the air conditioning and the plumbing, and watch the houses turn back into dirt. And then pay himself another bonus.”

God said, “I need someone to lend money to people with bad credit at 30% interest in order to get his stock price up, and then, just before the loans turn bad, cash out his stock and walk away. And who, when asked later, will, with a tearful eye, say the government made him do it.”

God said, “And I need somebody who will tell everyone else to stand on their own two feet, but who will then run to the government for a bailout as soon as he gets into trouble — and who will then use that bailout money to help elect a Congress that will look the other way. And then pay himself another bonus.”

So God made a banker.

E-Mail from White House 12/21/2012 15:51
Just received today in my Hotmail box not a ZT:

A Message from President Obama about Your Petition on Reducing Gun Violence

By Bruce Reed, Chief of Staff to Vice President Biden

In the days since the tragedy in Newtown, Americans from all over the country have called for action to deter mass shootings and reduce gun violence. Hundreds of thousands of you have signed petitions on We the People.

I'm writing you today to thank you for speaking up, to update you on an important development, and to encourage you to continue engaging with the White House on this critical issue.

First, you should know that President Obama is paying close to attention to the public response to this tragedy. In fact, he sat down to record a message specifically for those of you who have joined the conversation using We the People. Watch it now:

.....

Vice President Biden has been asked to work with members of the Administration, Congress, and the general public to come up with a set of concrete policy proposals by next month -- proposals the President intends to push swiftly. The President asked the Vice President to lead this effort in part because he wrote and passed the 1994 Crime Bill that helped law enforcement bring down the rate of violent crime in America. That bill included the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

As the Vice President's Chief of Staff, I'm going to do everything I can to ensure we run a process that includes perspectives from all sides of the issue, which is why I wanted to respond to your petition myself. Two decades ago, as domestic policy adviser in the Clinton White House, I first worked with Joe Biden as he fought to enact the Crime Bill, the assault weapons ban, and the Brady Bill. I will never forget what a key role the voices of concerned citizens like you played in that vital process.

The President called on Congress to pass important legislation "banning the sale of military-style assault weapons," "banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips," and "requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all."

An issue this serious and complex isn't going to be resolved with a single legislative proposal or policy prescription. And let's be clear, any action we take will respect the Second Amendment. As the President said:

"Look, like the majority of Americans, I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. This country has a strong tradition of gun ownership that's been handed down from generation to generation. Obviously across the country there are regional differences. There are differences between how people feel in urban areas and rural areas. And the fact is the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible -- they buy their guns legally and they use them safely, whether for hunting or sport shooting, collection or protection.

But you know what, I am also betting that the majority -- the vast majority -- of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war. I'm willing to bet that they don't think that using a gun and using common sense are incompatible ideas -- that an unbalanced man shouldn't be able to get his hands on a military-style assault rifle so easily; that in this age of technology, we should be able to check someone's criminal records before he or she can check out at a gun show; that if we work harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one in Newtown -- or any of the lesser-known tragedies that visit small towns and big cities all across America every day."

The President said it best: "Ultimately if this effort is to succeed it's going to require the help of the American people -- it's going to require all of you. If we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of Americans -- mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals -- and, yes, gun owners -- standing up and saying 'enough' on behalf of our kids."

So let's continue this conversation and get something meaningful done. If you have additional ideas and are interested in further engagement with the White House on this issue, please let us know and share your thoughts here:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/share-your-thoughts-reducing-gun-violence

Thank you for speaking out and staying involved.
Stay Connected
