Three tips for becoming a better China-watcher - SupChina
Nonetheless, they are invaluable windows into the terminology, perspectives, policies, and personalities on which the Chinese Communist Party wants readers to focus. They should therefore be read as such, by focusing not just on the explicit claims they make and where they are directing your attention, but also on which topics and perspectives they omit and, crucially, why they might do so.

Good information about China is relatively hard to obtain, doubly so because it is channeled through a limited set of journalists, researchers, analysts, and propaganda outlets with the expertise needed to bridge the gaps between China and the outside world.

assessments must be rooted in an understanding of China’s historical, societal, and political context.

Furthermore, Chinese norms for prose mean core claims often appear buried or bafflingly idiomatic (such that knowing what they say is not at all the same as understanding what they mean).

Andrew Sullivan: My Distraction Sickness — and Yours

At your desk at work, or at home on your laptop, you disappeared down a rabbit hole of links and resurfaced minutes (or hours) later to reencounter the world. But the smartphone then went and made the rabbit hole portable, inviting us to get lost in it anywhere, at any time, whatever else we might be doing. Information soon penetrated every waking moment of our lives.

My breathing slowed. My brain settled. My body became much more available to me. I could feel it digesting and sniffing, itching and pulsating. It was if my brain were moving away from the abstract and the distant toward the tangible and the near.

Remember, my friend Sam Harris, an atheist meditator, had told me before I left, if you’re suffering, you’re thinking.

If you’re watching a football game with your son while also texting a friend, you’re not fully with your child — and he knows it. Truly being with another person means being experientially with them, picking up countless tiny signals from the eyes and voice and body language and context, and reacting, often unconsciously, to every nuance. These are our deepest social skills, which have been honed through the aeons. They are what make us distinctively human.

in a controlled and sequestered world that exists largely free of the sudden eruptions or encumbrances of actual human interaction.

The reason we live in a culture increasingly without faith is not because science has somehow disproved the unprovable, but because the white noise of secularism has removed the very stillness in which it might endure or be reborn.

From the moment I entered a church in my childhood, I understood that this place was different because it was so quiet.

this silence demarcated what we once understood as the sacred, marking a space beyond the secular world of noise and business and shopping.

The only place like it was the library, and the silence there also pointed to something beyond it — to the learning that required time and patience, to the pursuit of truth that left practical life behind.

Has our enslavement to dopamine — to the instant hits of validation that come with a well-crafted tweet or Snapchat streak — made us happier?

just as modern street lighting has slowly blotted the stars from the visible skies, so too have cars and planes and factories and flickering digital screens combined to rob us of a silence that was previously regarded as integral to the health of the human imagination.

TV, The Thinking Person’s Entertainment of Choice - NYTimes.com
quality television series also promise a welcome escape from a muddled, technology-addled existence.

They provide relief from nonnarrative mobile messages, from different voices nattering away, all at once, on different subjects and the multiple, inconstant jobs that now fill so much of our lives.

人不同,奶有别
脱脂还是全脂?低糖还是高钙?补脑还是纤体?嘿!好多奶!牛奶品种多如牛毛,简直让人挑花了眼。你最喜欢喝哪一种奶呢?你真的适合它吗?
按照乳脂肪含量的不同,牛奶可以分为全脂奶(脂肪含量为3.5%-4.5%)、半脱脂奶(1.0%-3.5%)和脱脂奶(一般低于0.04%)。以每次饮用250mL全脂牛奶计算,其中的脂肪大约会为了我们带来80kcal左右的热量(大概步行十几分钟就能消耗掉),占每个人每天所需脂肪的10%以上。
不过,牛奶中对风味影响最大的成分也是脂肪。作为组成和结构最复杂的脂类物质,乳脂肪怀揣着400多种脂肪酸的丰富内涵,赋予了牛奶浓郁独特的香气和饱满醇厚的口感。

理性爱国第一步:搞懂什么是日货
狭义的日货可分为四大类:

1、在日本本土生产的产品。任何在日本本土生产的产品,包括其他国家品牌,都可被称为日货。例如美国公司在日本本土生产的美国品牌产品,也可被列入“日货”范畴。其重要标志是包装上有“日本制造”字样。

2、日资企业生产的产品。纯日资或包含日资的合资企业产品。普通消费者很难弄清哪些产品是日资,可以不夸张的说,随着中国与国际商贸日益密切,日资渗透到我们生活每一处。大家熟悉的淘宝、人人网都获得过日资投资。

3、日本品牌产品。传统日本品牌产品,如丰田、本田、资生堂、西铁城、卡西欧、佳能、索尼等。

4、日本文化产品。如蜡笔小新、灌篮高手、七龙珠、美少女战士、名侦探柯南都是日系文化产品。

广义的日货,至少分为两大类:

1、包含日本原件和原材料的一切产品。市场上大部分电视机、电冰箱、洗衣机、飞机、火车、汽车、照相机等等,无论是日本品牌或是中国品牌,基本都包含来自日企的零配件或原材料。

2、和日本有生意往来的企业的一切产品。这可能算是捅了马蜂窝,当今世界各国经贸关系如此密切,和日本人直接间接做生意的企业太多太多。

社交动物
看着牛人共享的2011年书单,未成年iOS开发者做的Apple APP,HTML5开发者演讲聚会上对知识如饥似渴的眼神,书架上Kindle里沉睡的技术管理文学金融社会书籍,PC中只运行过Hello World Android例程的Eclipse和日益缩水的税后收入,是时候告别微博和伪社交,将目光的焦点从我影响不了的国家大事也无法参透的国际棋局上移开,脚踏实地,为自己能触碰的未来做些什么吧。

东失信息真,西归事件本
最近,《环球时报》对“求真”很感兴趣。去年12月17日的社评《求真,中国社会打了多少折扣》说:“中国知识分子尤其应当把‘真’放在善和美之上,不能把价值判断作为观察一切社会问题的出发点。”今年3月10日的社评《对信息失真做一次集体反思》,谈了崔永元因在政协会议误引美国手机费而道歉的事,强调说:“我们主张的是,把‘真实’放在所有利益和价值之上,让求真永远处于中国社会至高无上的位置。”本文就是响应号召,为《环球时报》提出的“集体反思”贡献一己之知。

【记录】文献检索
大学期间,觉得所学的课程中,最有用的一门课就是《文献检索》,至少他教会了学生们怎么自己去获取知识,而不是被灌输无用的“学问”,没有压迫也没有考试,完全自由的获取自己想要的东西。

参考文献著录归法
印刷型文献标识:

M——专著,C——论文集,N——报纸文章,J——期刊文章,D——学位论文,R——研究报告,S——标准,P——专利,Proc. ——会议论文,A——专著,论文集中析出的文献;对于不属于上述的文献类型,采用字母“Z”标识。
