油条的制作方法 10/15/2007 17:33
最近犯馋,就做成了豆腐脑。想一想如果配上一根彭彭松松的油条就生活完美了,就查了一查油条的制作方法。好像老祖宗们的制作方法用明矾,铝剩余物对脑子不好。网上有一人贴了一个健康做法,不知有没有人懂的,这个化学反应的剩余物是不是健康?其实就是需要一种可以替代明矾的发泡剂。。还有他那里边说的碳酸钠和柠檬酸到底是什么东西? 美国有卖的吗?

晚饭时碰到这么一个老美, decent looking, well mannered, 看似受过良好教育, 还时不常 MIT 挂在嘴边的。聊了一会才知道他原来在 practice 法轮功。还说了一大堆法轮功怎么怎么好的话。 说他曾经去中国为法轮功protest,还说起法轮功今年在 Boston 举办的春节晚会什么的。

我问他知不知有人法轮功练到伤人伤己,丢家丧命?他说没听说过。我问他为什么只要是反中国的就在美国有市场? 他说是因为 trading deficit。我问他对中国的 economical development 怎么看,让这么多的人摆脱贫困,有饭吃?他给我一双puppy‘s eyes, apparently have no idea what the hack I was talking about !

美国人,但他说他更喜爱中国。但是为什么他们对中国的了解和认识是这么来的呢? 我又有这种感觉 tonight,很多美国人很。。。哎。 frustrated
定的书到了,在看第一章, 随便摘两段。。

International Bestseller
Nobel Prize-winning author of Globalization and it's discontents
“ Making Globalization Work"
-- Joseph E. Stiglitz

Chapter 1 : Another World is Possible
p4:
....
I believe that globalization has the potential to bring enormous benefits to those in both the developing and the developed world. But the evidence is overwhelming that it has failed to live up to this protential. This book will show that the problem is not with globalization itself but in the way globalization has been managed. Economics has been driving globalization, especially through the lowering of communication and transportation costs. But politics has shaped it. The rules of the game have been largely set by the advanced industrial countries ---and particularly by special interests within those countries ---and, not surprisingly, they have shaped globalization to further their own interests. They have not sought to create a fair set of rules, let alone a set of rules that would promote the well-being of those in the poorest countries of the world.

p5:
...In Davos there was relief, and a bit of complacency. The global economy, which had been weak since the bursting of the dot-com bubble in America, was finally recovering, and the "war on terror" seemed to be under countrol. The 2003 gathering has been marked by enormous tension between the United States and the rest of the world over the war in Iraq, and still earlier meetings had seen disagreement over the direction which globalization was taking. The 2004 meeting was marked with relief that these tensions had at least been modulated. Still there was worry about American unilateralism, about the world's most powerful country imposing its will on others while preaching democracy, self-dertermination, and human rights. People in the developing world had long been worried about how global decisions --- desicions about economics and politics that affected their lives -- were made. Now, it seemed the rest of the world was worried also.

中了中了! 9/01/2007 22:10
中了中了,本想只是撞撞运气就放了个名字进去,没想到居然中了北京奥运会的票! happy happy 看来明年是一定要回去凑热闹了。不知有没有同行的?
记得小时候不吃 multivitamin, 活得挺好从来不觉得缺什么。 现在时不时就嚼几颗,这标准定的都对吗,是不是都安美国人的体重,一刀切呀。。multivitamin, 是吃还是不吃?
吃 -- 真好吗? 总记不住。。吃多少,吃那种?
不吃 -- 又怎么样呢?
上上上次去海边玩, 顺便带了一副牌。 本来打算在沙滩上打牌消遣,结果牌没打成,倒成了算命的工具! 还有我们看了手相。 Laughing Laughing

从那之后,只见算命招术层出不穷, 生肖,八卦,时辰,黄历,真是上有上天揽星月, 下有出访动物园!。。。 狂笑 狂笑 不知大家是不是真信,但我认为这种东西说说笑笑,玩玩可以,但可别当真。 如果照其而行事选择家庭,事业,左右你的行动可就要小心了。

这里我来介绍一个多少有些科学根据的吧。 我头一次是在 Manager Training 的时候看到的。慢慢的发现 it is a popular theory used in social science, marriage counseling, career coaching, people management etc.

American Food 6/13/2007 14:02
来美国这些年,经过了 food adoption。尽管我已经非常习惯 American food,但是有些食物我还是望而远之, 敬而远之。。刚从 cafeteria lunch 回来, 今天Cafe 卖个汤是 chilli, salty ground beef soup with beans。 我知道很多美国人喜欢chilli, (~~悄悄的~~)但我是到现在我也不太明白为什么他们喜欢把豆(腰豆,还有黑豆)煮成咸的汤来吃。。。黑豆在中国不是用来喂马的吗?

还是我们亚洲人的红豆,绿豆甜品好吃。
