诺贝尔生理/医学奖得主 Prof. David Baltimore (Caltech加州理工学院, 演讲主题为 Current Intellectual Trends 

Dr. David Baltimore - President of the California Institute of Technology [1997-2006] .

Dr. David Baltimore assumed the presidency on October 15, 1997. During his tenure many significant events took place at Caltech. Early on, he oversaw the completion of a fund-raising initiative for the biological sciences, marked by the construction and dedication of the Broad Center for the Biological Sciences. He launched the current $1.4 billion capital campaign, which included receipt of the largest gift to higher education, $600 million from Gordon and Betty Moore and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The campaign will continue for one more year and has already raised more than $1.1 billion. An important part of Caltech's mission is its stewardship of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, supported by NASA. Baltimore's presidency has spanned many spectacular JPL successes, notably the Mars Exploration Rovers, as well as the appointment of a new director, Dr. Charles Elachi.

Also during his tenure, five members of the Caltech faculty and alumni received Nobel Prizes. Baltimore received his own Nobel in 1975 at the age of 37 for his work on the genetic mechanisms of viruses. He has contributed widely to the understanding of cancer, AIDS, and the molecular basis of the immune response. He has continued to operate his research lab while acting as president and has announced many important scientific breakthroughs while at Caltech, including establishing a new methodology to help fight cancer, developing a new gene therapy that is highly effective in preventing HIV from infecting individual cells in the immune system, and creating a new methodology for producing transgenic mice. He has also joined with others in proposing a new global effort to create an HIV vaccine. He received the National Medal of Science in 1999 from President Bill Clinton and the Warren Alpert Foundation Prize in 2000 for pioneering work leading to cancer therapy.

Not only has Baltimore been prolific in writing about his findings in scientific journals, but he also raised Caltech's visibility by contributing opinion pieces to general-interest media on such subjects as the value of stem cell research, the unnecessary public panic that arose during the SARS epidemic, science research under the Bush administration, and the importance of maintaining the scientific workforce in the United States.

Baltimore has several outstanding administrative and public policy achievements to his credit. In the mid-1970s, he played an important role in creating a consensus on national science policy regarding recombinant DNA research. He served as founding director of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at MIT from 1982 until 1990 and was president of Rockefeller University in 1990-91. An early advocate of federal AIDS research, he co-chaired the 1986 National Academy of Sciences Committee on a National Strategy for AIDS and was appointed in 1996 to head the National Institutes of Health AIDS Vaccine Research Committee. He is the president-elect of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

 

Ambassador Zhong Jianhua,
Consul General of the People's Republic of China (Los Angeles)

Born in 1950, Ambassador Zhong Jianhua is a graduate of the Beijing Institute of Foreign Languages (China) and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy (U.S.A.). Among his many diplomatic assignments, he has served as Second Secretary in the Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and as First Secretary in the Office of the Chinese Senior Representative of the Sino-British Joint Liaison Group (regarding Hong Kong). Before assuming his post in 2002 as Chinese Consul General in Los Angeles (with rank of ambassador), he was Director General of the Department of Consular Affairs in the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Prof. Justine Su (Zhixin) 苏智欣教授

 

简历: 苏智欣博士赴美学习与工作之前毕业于上海外语大学,并在中国国家教育部外事局任职三年. 1989年在美国华盛顿大学获教育政策和管理学的博士学位之后, 苏博士先后在加州大学 (UCLA) 和加州州立大学(CSUN)教育研究生院任教育管理学教授职务, 并从1996年起担任加州州立 大学 (CSUN) 中国所所长, 又于2002年起兼任大学国际项目总协调负责人. 她为中国设计并举办了多种类型的长期和短期的政府, 教育, 企业, 卫生 等部门领导干部和学者的培训 项目, 为促进中美合作与交流做出了巨大贡献, 荣获中国政府 “杰出华裔学者春晖奖, 及美国国际学者联合会 “国际交流杰出贡献奖. 苏博士 还积极从 事中美教育比较研究, 领导并主持了中美校长培训比较研究, 中美师范教育 比较研究, 中美科学教育比较研究, 杜威对中国教育的历史影响, 中美小学教育比较研究等项目, 在国际国内学术会议上发表论文八十多篇, 并在美国, 中国及欧洲学术杂志和书刊上发表五十多篇研究论文, 应邀为多种国际一级学术杂志担任评审。 近年来, 苏教授还担任了中国三所大学的荣誉教授, 每年回中国讲学及开展合作研究.

 

Presenter’s Biography: Dr. Justine Zhixin Su is professor of education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Director of the China Institute, and Coordinator of International Programs at California State University, Northridge. Her research interests include educational administration, teacher education, school reform, curriculum and instruction, comparative and international education. She has published numerous research reports in first-rate refereed education journals and research books, including Teaching and Teacher Education, Journal of School Leadership, Teachers College Record, Education and Urban Society, Journal of American Education, International Review of Education, International Education Journal, Comparative Education, Journal of Research on Education and Development, International Journal of Educational Reform, Oxford Review of Education, and Teacher Education Yearbooks.

 

演讲主题简介: “多科与单科教学方法之比较: 中国与美国学校教学的案例探索” 是苏智欣博士领导的中美小学教育比较研究的一部分, 已经在国际学术会议上多次报告, 并在美国教育政策杂志上发表, 引起了美国教育界的震动. 近年来, 教育比较研究学者们发现美国的基础教育问题重重, 美国学生在国际数学考试中的成绩往往低于亚洲和欧洲国家的学生. 美国小学生毕业时, 数学水平竟然比中国学生低两年级. 这种 “学习上的差距” 引起了美国政界和教育界的高度重视, 继而发现这种差距与 “教学上的差距” 密切相关, 但对于造成这种差距的原因, 一直没有找到合理的答案. 苏博士的比较研究一针见血地指出了美国小学教育的致命弱点: 即多科教学方法. 在这种方法的施行之下, 美国教师没有坚实的基础教好所有的科目, 没有时间完成教学计划, 没有时间与同行交流合作, 没有时间和精力为学生提供及时的反馈, 以至于许多学生在学习上落伍, 基础知识薄弱. 相比之下, 中国的小学课堂实施单科教学, 教师有时间集体备课, 有机会合作交流, 能及时为学生提供反馈, 保证了完整和扎实的基础教育. 美国基础教育改革的关键, 取决于能否取消多科教学的方法. 否则, “不让一个孩子落伍” 的宏伟目标就只是一句空话.

 

Multiple vs. Single Subject Approach: A Comparative

Case Study of Teaching in American and Chinese Schools

 

Abstract:

This presentation will report critical findings from a comparative case study of two American and two Chinese elementary classrooms. The American schools use multiple-subject approach while the Chinese schools adopt a single-subject approach. The researcher argues that the single-subject approach makes it possible for the Chinese teachers to have more time for planning and instruction on the core subjects, and more time to spend with individual students, especially students with special needs and difficulties in learning. Consequently, the Chinese elementary school education offers stronger basic skills education to its students. In contrast, the American multiple-subject approach makes it possible for teachers to use interdisciplinary approach in teaching and project work, provides more flexibility and autonomy to classroom teachers, and offers more opportunities in time and space for students to develop their creativity, independence, and individuality. Elementary teachers in both nations can learn from each other and make necessary changes in their teaching approaches.

演讲主题简介: 多尺度分析和模拟:数学理论和工程应用的相互促进”

报告人:候一钊教授

美国加州理工学院

内容简介:

科学与工程的很多问题都包涵多尺度的特征,比如复合与纳米材料,多孔介质中流体流动和输运,湍流等都是通过多尺度问题来描述的。对这类多尺度问题进行直接数值求解是极端困难的。计算数亿量级的自由度的高昂费用导致无法用精细网格计算问题的小尺度特征。工程的实际应用要求建立粗网格模型去描述大尺度上的平均解特征。然而,由于不同尺度的非线性耦合,这是一项具有挑战性的任务。为了捕捉小尺度特征在大尺度上的影响,必须建立系统化的多尺度分析理论,进而开发有效的多尺度计算方法。

在此讲演中,我将介绍我们在开发求解非均匀多孔介质多相流问题的多尺度计算方法的最新进展。多相流是非常重要的问题,在石油工程、污染传输和流体动力等许多工程领域有着广泛应用。我们获得的一些新方法已经被工业界采纳并在工程中得到应用。然后,我将介绍三维不可压缩流体的多尺度分析。建立可靠的湍流模型对飞机设计等许多工程应用有着重大的影响,是一项极具挑战性的问题。目前,大多数湍流模型都是基于非严格的封闭假设,它们依赖于一些未知参数。我们所建立的多尺度模型不需要封闭假设,也不包含任何特定参数。我们的数值实验结果说明这种新的多尺度模型可以有效地模拟湍流问题。

Title: Multiscale Modeling and Simulation:

Interplay between Mathematics and Engineering Applications.

 

Abstarct:

 

Many problems of fundamental and practical importance contain multiple scale solutions. Composite and nano materials, flow and transport in heterogeneous porous media, and turbulent flow are examples of this type. Direct numerical simulations of these multiscale problems are extremely difficult due to the wide range of length scales in the underlying physical problems. It is too expensive to simulate the small scale features using a fine grid on the order of tens of millions of degrees of freedom. From the prospective of engineering applications, it is essential to develop a coarse grid model to describe the average behavior of the solution on the large scales, but with several order of magnitude fewer degrees of freedom. This is a challenging task due to nonlinear interaction of different scales. In order to capture correctly the effect of small subgrid scales on the large scales, we have to develop a systematic multiscale analysis, which provides a critical guideline in developing an efficient multiscale computational method.

 

In this talk, I describe our recent progress in developing multiscale computational methods to upscale multi-phase flows in strongly heterogeneous porous media. Multi-phase flows arise in many applications, ranging from petroleum engineering, contaminant transport, and fluid dynamics applications. Some of our multiscale methods have already been adopted by the industry in their flow simulators. Further, we show how to develop a systematic multiscale analysis for incompressible flows in three space dimensions. Deriving a reliable turbulent model has a significant impact in many engineering applications, including the aircraft design. This is known to be an extremely challenging problem. So far, most of the existing turbulent models are based on heuristic closure assumption and involve unknown parameters which need to be fitted by experimental data. In comparison, our multiscale method does not involve any closure assumption and there are no adjustable parameters. We will present numerical evidences to demonstrate that our multiscale analysis provides an effective computational method for simulating homogeneous turbulent flows.

The project is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.

Transit users in small urban and rural communities face significant problems when using transit for primary transportation needs. The uncertainty of catching a bus that may come only once every half hour or longer to a rural bus stop is one of them. In response to this and other small transit problems, the California DOT (Caltrans) embarked on a research program entitled “Efficient Deployment of Advanced Public Transportation Systems” (EDAPTS). The goal is to make Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies more available to the small transit community.

 

EDAPTS research is ready for its last hurdle - commercialization. A new transitional test deployment of an updated EDAPTS concept system is now starting at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, California (Cal Poly Pomona). Through this test deployment, the commercialization of the EDAPTS concept systems can be further assessed and facilitated. Experience and knowledge gained from the test deployment will assist small transit properties in adopting the EDAPTS concept system and develop private suppliers.

 

The test system will provide students, faculty and staff at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) with real-time traveler information via methods similar to those used in the original San Luis Obispo test system. This includes the solar powered Smart Transit Signs and will consider other new features such as user empowering web-enabled phones and the Internet. The focus remains on using low cost schemes to most effectively provide traveler information to Bronco Express shuttle riders, hence making shuttle use more convenient for students.

 

This presentation will introduce the EDAPTS technology and summarize the current research status of the test deployment at Cal Poly Pomona.

UCLA CONFERENCE - “Fifty Years of Integrative Medicine in China

Saturday, October 28, 2006

9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Jules Stein Auditorium, UCLA

KEYNOTE SPEAKER - PROFESSOR KEJI CHEN

Academician of the China Academy of Sciences,

President of the China Association of Integrative Medicine,

President of the China Association of Geriatrics, and

First Wallis Annenberg Visiting Professor in

Integrative East-West Medicine

 

One of the first breakthroughs in the development of integrative East-West medicine resulted from scientific research by Professor Chen into the pattern of Blood Stasis, a pathophysiological state seen in multiple diseases in their evolution (a concept akin to, but broader than, atherosclerosis). This research provided an explanation of an ancient TCM concept in a modern, scientific way and led to clinical applications beyond commonly seen vascular diseases. Over the years, integrative East-West approaches in 37 different medical specialties have been developed. These include, among others, cardiology (and hypertension), cancer, nephrology, orthopedics, dermatology, ENT, geriatrics, GI/liver disease, pediatrics, and OB-GYN.

 

Other speakers include:

Alan Fogelman, Professor and Executive Chairman, UCLA Department of Medicine

Ka-Kit Hui, Wallis Annenberg Professor in Integrative East-West Medicine, Founder and Director, UCLA Center for East-West Medicine

Zhaoping Li, Associate Clinical Professor, UCLA Center for Human Nutrition

邁克戴爾米德獲授港科大榮譽博士 朱經武函知 欣然接受 與中國交往頻仍曾對能源發展提出建言 (World Journal)

 德州大學達拉斯分校科技學院院長邁克戴爾米德(中前),和德州大學達拉斯分校副校長馮達旋(中後)前往中國三峽大壩訪問,受到特別禮遇,被邀請到三峽大壩水電站下面發電機房參觀。 (圖片由馮達旋提供)

2000年諾貝爾化學獎得主、德州大學達拉斯分校教授邁克戴爾米德 (Alan G. Mac-Diarmid),接到香港科技大學校長朱經武來函通知,將於119日授予他香港科大榮譽博士學位。

邁克戴爾米德欣然接受這項榮譽。他在給朱經武的回函中表示,將專程前往香港科大接受榮譽博h證書。

他表示,很高興今年8月在德州大學達拉斯分校舉行的第六屆新興信息技術會議上與朱經武相見,尤其朱經武在大會上介紹以美國系統建立香港科大的專題演講影響深刻。

因有關導電聚合物的發現,邁克戴爾米德和美國科學家艾倫.黑格、日本科學家白川英樹共享2000年的諾貝爾化學獎。

經由德州大學達拉斯分校副校長馮達旋穿針引線,邁克戴爾米德近年來與中國交往頻仍,每年都前往中國。吉林大學2002年建立以他名字命名的奈米研究所,他還先後獲得南京大學、復旦大學和三峽大學的名譽教授。

今年11月,三峽大學將舉辦國際再生能源會議,並成立以他名字命名的再生能源研究所,屆時巴西和紐西蘭的科技部長都將應邀與會。由於在再生能源方面的獨特研究和見解,邁克戴爾米德曾多次應邀到中南海做專題演講,對中國能源發展提出建言。

目前擔任德州大學達拉斯分校科技學院院長的邁克戴爾米德是在馮達旋力邀下,於2002年到德大。

馮達旋深知要把德大達拉斯分校建成國際一流學府,人才至關重要,因此邀請邁克戴爾米德為該校首席教授,並建成了一個國際水準的奈米科技中心,該中心已在奈米科技方面取得了重大突破。通過碳管排列,他們運用奈米管創造出迄今為止自然界和合成纖維中最堅韌的纖維。

邁克戴爾米德對中國最早的認識來自他眾多的中國學生,被他稱為「最優秀的一名學生」因癌症去世,他還親自參加這名來自南京大學的弟子葬禮。

申請綠卡者出境 毋忘先辦回美證 (World Journal周雨婷)

聖誕季節即將來臨,不少移民都會利用放長假的機會回國探親。聯邦公民及移民服務局(USCIS)日前發出通知,提醒已提出綠卡申請的民眾,離境美國前一定要提前申請回美證(Advance Parole,簡稱AP),保持自己在美的合法身分,避免入境美國時遭到拒絕。 移民局表示,如今已提出綠卡申請的民眾,均符合資格申請回美證,政治庇護案在等待階段的申請人,以及已經在美國取得了臨時保護令(Temporary Protected Sta-tus,簡稱TPS)的人士,在離開美國前,也必須先申請回美證。這些人士需要提交I-131表格,申請表格可從移民局網站www.uscis.gov網站下載,民眾也可到當地公民與移民服務局的服務中心申請。回美證的審批時間,大約在90天至150天之間,視各地移民局的處理案件的速度而定。

 

移民局表示,年末假日集中,感恩節、聖誕節、新年均是出國高峰,不少移民海外旅遊,或是回原屬國探親,計劃在這期間離開美國的人士,一定要仔細計算回美證審批時間,盡快、提前辦理申請手續。 移民局同時提醒稱,凡在美國有非法居留紀錄人士,即使事先申請到回美證,非法居留紀錄一旦被發現,在入境美國時也會遭拒。 凡在美國非法居留180天以上,但不到一年的人士,三年內不可重回美國。在美國非法居留一年以上的人士,十年不可重回美國。即使有些人離開美國後又再進美國,今後也不可能再成功調整身分。民眾若想了解申請回美證的更多資料,可登錄網頁www.uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/travdoc.htm查詢。

分析布什政府操纵油价四大阴谋论

  《华盛顿邮报》10/11总结了当前流行的布什操纵油价的四大阴谋论,并认为正是这些因素导致石油市场的价格变化莫测。

  第一种阴谋论认为和布什家族关系密切的石油产出大国沙特正在助布什一臂之力。目前,欧佩克成员国准备一起限量减产以制止油价下跌,沙特却称减产一事最好在该组织的部长级会议上商议,而这个会议要等到12月召开,正好在美国国会选举后,这就为布什政府维持低油价争取了时间。

  第二种阴谋论称,是布什政府的幕僚在怂恿高盛集团插手油价。这一说法将矛头指向了新财政部长、高盛集团前首席执行官保尔森。实际上,高盛近期确实3次调整或削减汽油期货。花旗集团的石油分析家列加特称:高盛的举动给了油价以重压,是油价下挫的重要原因。

  第三种阴谋论认为布什利用美国战略石油储备操纵油价。通常,美政府会缓慢地提高战略石油储备,但今年4月,布什却以平抑油价为名宣布采取暂停增加储备量的非常措施。一些美国人怀疑政府正偷偷出售存放在路易斯安那州盐洞中的6.877亿桶战略储备油。

  第四种阴谋论认为是大型石油公司在暗中帮助共和党。美国广播公司著名主持人泰森斯洛克姆披露,2001年以来,石油公司提供总共6300万美元的政治捐款中,81%的钱都跑进共和党的腰包。

中国国家人口和计划生育委员会副主任赵白鸽博士在沈阳举行的第14届世界生产力大会上表示,到本世纪上半叶,中国将先后迎来相互迭加和交织的三大人口高峰,总人口高峰、劳动年龄人口高峰和老年人口高峰。三大人口高峰对社会公共管理与服务体系提出了巨大需求,这一切都呼唤着统筹解决人口问题,促进人力资源的发展。今后,中国的人口与计划生育工作将从单一的人口控制向统筹解决人口问题转型。 在人口规模方面,中国的总和生育率为1.8,但每年仍将有800万到1000万的净增人口,这意味着每两年将产生一个澳大利亚的人口,每6年产生一个英国的人口。人口的文化、教育、科技素质亟待提高,难以适应激烈的综合国力的竞争,特别是女性儿童的辍学已经成为国民教育中最薄弱的环节。此外,中国累计残障人口已超过6000万人,相当于法国的人口。在人口结构方面,中国面临着出生性别比偏高和人口老龄化的双重挑战,社会保障面临空前压力。中国过去30年创造了经济快速增长和人口适度控制两大世界奇迹。经济快速增长使2.5亿人脱离贫困,民众生活得到极大改善。中国创造的另一个奇迹是在人口控制方面,自20世纪70年代以来,中国政府确立了正确的人口发展战略,由于稳妥的人口政策,中国的人口减少了4亿,相当于西欧的总人口。如以当时总和生育率5.8计算,到2005年底,中国人口就是17亿而非13亿。

 

随着中国生产力的提高和经济快速发展,大量农村劳动力从土地中解放出来,走向城市,因此,中国正面临着全球最大的、最迅速的人口迁移活动。这在促进经济发展的同时,也带来了一系列问题。中国农村有两亿人常年奔波于城市和乡村之间,造就了中国历史上独一无二的农民工大军。他们希望以自己的辛劳在城市立足,并最终改变自己和后代的前途命运。赵白鸽表示,中国的人口与计划生育工作将从单一的人口控制向统筹解决人口问题转型。这种转型包括:统筹解决人口的数量、素质、结构、迁移和安全问题;由以行政控制手段为主向综合治理人口问题转型,即通过宣传教育、法律、科技、行政、社会保障等综合手段治理人口问题。抓住出生人口减少、社会总抚养比下降、劳动力资源丰富的机遇,大力发展教育和科技,扩大社会投入,提高积累。过去以行政手段控制人口增长取得了很好效果,但随着经济和社会的发展,仅仅控制人口数量显然已不能满足要求。继续控制人口数量的同时,要想方设法把人口变成资源,把人力资本变成一种财富。今后,中国要提高现有人口的素质,包括文化素质、道德素质和健康素质等,促进中国由人口大国向人力资本强国转变

China strives for compulsory education for all

At the end of 2005, the Chinese government announced it would invest 125.4 billion yuan (US$15.6 billion) over the next five years to foot the bill for compulsory education in rural areas, making sure every rural child has the opportunity for a free nine-year education. By 2008, all the fees for rural China's 400, 000 elementary and junior high schools will be shouldered by central and local governments. Central government invested 3.69 billion yuan (US$461.3 million) on schools in 12 western provinces including Yunnan and Sichuan to cover the school fees before the start of 2006 spring semester. The plan is to extend the scheme to China's central and eastern areas, with 148 million primary and junior high school students receiving a free education in 2007. By 2008, all the fees for rural China's 400, 000 elementary and junior high schools will be shouldered by central and local governments. Local governments have been ordered to pay a minimum 92.8 billion yuan (US$11.6 billion) over the next five years, bringing the total spending to a potential 212.8 billion yuan (US$26.6 billion).

 

In addition, students from poor farming families in key counties included in the national poverty alleviation plan will be provided with free textbooks and exempted from paying miscellaneous fees. Boarding students will receive a living allowance. "This policy is a milestone for China's century-old compulsory education, moving from an era where farmers support compulsory education into one where the government shoulders all the responsibility," said Zhou Ji, China's education minister.

Free and compulsory education is identified as a fundamental human right by the United Nations. The U.N. Millennium Development Goals stipulate that every school-age boy and girl complete a full course of primary education. A report released by the Asian Development Bank states that of the world's 190 nations, more than 170 provide their children with free compulsory education. Included in the list are poor Asian countries like Laos, Cambodia and Nepal, whose per capita GDP amounts to just one third of China's.

明年中国10高校研究生试行奖学金制 不分公自费

2007年中国有10所高校将进行研究生培养机制试点改革。参与试点的10所高校分别是北大、清华、复旦、上海交大、同济大学、西安交大、中国农大、华中科大、哈工大。这些学校招收研究生不再分公费和自费,而是采取奖学金的方式。同时,学校将为研究生提供教学助理、管理助理和科研助理岗位,使其获得岗位津贴。北大博士奖学金最高一年达24600元。复旦大学硕士生奖学金覆盖面不低于90%,博士生奖学金覆盖面为100%。中国教育部说,培养经费的改革只是中国研究生培养机制改革中的一项,改革的核心是培养创新型人才。

北大校長許智宏說明引進人才機制 任用外國與留美全職或兼職教授是短期提升學校素質必需與迫切的作法 (STUSA李浩)

對於哈佛大學 華裔 教授丘成桐的﹁北大引進的海外人才大部分是假的﹂的說法﹐出席北京大學南加州校友會 2006 年年會的北京大學校長許智宏予以正面回應。許智宏表示﹐8年來從海外引進人才約佔全校教師總數的近40﹪﹐共聘請約共400多位各領域傑出人士任教。被北大引進的人才絕大多數在海外具有很高學歷﹐有過重要的學術任職和較高的學術成就。 北大自1998年起加強從海外引進人才的進度﹐並有一套引進人才的完整的機制。這些年來北大通過長江講座 和特聘 教授的方式﹐通過企業和社會捐贈設立專門教席的等多種方式﹐積極引進人才。這些引進所需要的經費都是專款專用的﹐並不涉及培養本土人才的經費﹐也沒有佔用本土人才培養所需要的資源﹐更沒有用這些人去騙取或套取國家鉅額的經費。

 

許智宏表示﹐有些批評北大的人其實並不瞭解情況。北大引進人才有多種模式﹕有的是12個月全職回來﹐有的回來9個月﹐有的回來半年﹐有的回來3個月﹐還有的根據需要可能只回來 一兩 個月﹐這完全取決於各個院系的學科建設需要﹐也完全符合國家自然科學基金委員會的安排。許智宏表示﹐關於人才引進﹐北大給各院系足夠的自主權和彈性﹐但學校人事部門在操作程序上嚴格把關。 從海外引進的人才中有特聘教授 和講座 教授之分﹐兩者在校任職時間有所不同﹐待遇也有所不同﹐不存在虛領報酬的問題。許智宏指出﹐任用外國與留美的全職或兼職教授﹐是短期提升學校素質必需與迫切的作法﹐外界質疑這個部分有問題﹐是不必要的誤解。

 

北大副校長海聞表示﹐包括他自己在內﹐許多海歸人士到北大服務都是從國外全職﹑中國兼職開始做起﹐最後才全數轉回在中國全職任教﹐海聞指出﹐與發達國家的大學相比﹐北大的辦學經費的確還是非常有限的﹐折衷的作法都是在提升學術實力的方針下﹐因應現實需要的一項過渡方式。 加州大學洛杉磯分校計算機系主任叢京生對於許智宏的解釋表示贊同﹐認為北大確需對其立場做出澄清。叢京生指出﹐他在2001年受聘為﹁長江學者獎勵計劃講座教授﹂﹐在北大教授計算機軟件與理論。他認為這些年來﹐北大確從海外引進很多優秀人才。北大根據國家的需要﹐不僅吸引大批留學人員回國服務﹐更為國內培養人才﹐做出積極貢獻。叢京生表示﹐外界不應媒體報導﹐對北大產生有負面印象。

A Celebration 35 Years of Acupuncture in the United States

 

November 5, 2006 Sheraton LaGuardia, 135-20 39th Ave, Flushing, NY WWW.TCMAA.ORG

 

Thirty-five years ago “acupuncture fever” was ignited in the United States in a New York Times story by journalist James Reston, “Now, Let Me Tell You About My Appendectomy in Peking”. The story was published on the front page of The New York Times on July 26, 1971, along with the article about the Apollo 15 liftoff.

 

In 1971, Reston, a winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, received an invitation from the Chinese Government to visit China. Arriving in Beijing on July 12th, Reston suddenly felt a stab of pain in his groin. The next day, he checked into the Peking Union Medical College Hospital, where he underwent an appendectomy.

 

After the operation, Reston felt considerable discomfort. Li Zhanyuan, a doctor of acupuncture at the hospital, with Reston's approval, inserted three long thin needles into his right elbow and below his knees. At the same time, Dr Li lit two pieces of a herb called ai (Chinese mugwort), which looked like the burning stumps of a broken cigar, and held them close to his abdomen, while occasionally twirling the needles into action. Reston later learned that this was the procedure called moxibustion.

 

"All this took about 20 minutes, during which I remember thinking that it was a rather complicated way to get rid of gas in the stomach, but there was noticeable relaxation of the pressure and distension within an hour and no recurrence of the problem.” The acupuncture treatment that Reston underwent was later called "an oriental Apollo." Though acupuncture had been practiced in North America ever since the first immigrants came to the continent from China, it never entered the mainstream before the early 1970s. Reston's article was the first genuine American experience in acupuncture to appear in the mainstream Western media.

 

To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Reston’s article, and to further convey the benefits of acupuncture to more people in the United States, the Traditional Chinese Medical Association and Alumni (TCMAA), together with the Association of Chinese American Physicians (ACAP), are organizing an event to bring together traditional Chinese medicine practitioners and Western medical doctors to review and examine the benefits of acupuncture. This event will take place in the Sheraton LaGuardia East, Flushing, New York, on November 5th, Sunday, 2006.

 

Beginning at noon, the conference portion of the event will feature several speakers, including Dr. Kathleen Hui from Harvard Medical School who will talk about the mechanism of acupuncture studied by fMRI and Dr. Rongsheng Lin who will share his clinical experiences of acupuncture techniques. In the evening there will be a reception and gala dinner. Mr. Thomas Reston, son of James Reston and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, will give the keynote speech.

 

Reston’s family members, senior acupuncture practitioners, researchers, and many distinguished guests have been invited to attend the evening event. Updated program and information of registration can be found at www.tcmaa.org.

三十五年美国针灸发展纪念会2006115 纽约法拉盛喜来登饭店

 

 

《纽约时报》著名记者詹姆斯赖斯顿 (James Reston) 1971年发表的一篇介绍他在北京接受针灸治疗的文章被公认为是美国大众传媒第一次向公众介绍现代中国针灸疗法。赖斯顿当时应中国政府邀请访华,访问北京期间突患急性阑尾炎。在周恩来总理的安排下,赖斯顿住进北京协和医院就医,并经多位专家会诊,由现为北京医院名誉院长的吴蔚然医生为其作阑尾切除手术。术后第二天,赖斯顿出现腹部胀痛。征得本人同意后,针灸医生李占元为赖斯顿施行了针灸治疗,在他的右肘部和双膝下共扎了三针,并用艾蒿熏烤腹部,明显减轻了他腹部的不适。赖斯顿据此在病床上写出了题为现在让我告诉你们我在北京的阑尾手术的文章,被刊登在1971726日《纽约时报》的头版,从而引发了美国一发不止的针灸热

针灸在美国35年来持续发展,直到今天,全美国各地有50多所针灸学校,两万多开业针灸师,包括五千余西医针灸师,全行业年产值约17亿美元,现有44个州通过了针灸法。

为回顾35年来针灸在美国的发展,美国中医药专业学会和美国华人医师会并联合其他学会将于2006115日于纽约共同举办庆祝活动。活动将有三方面内容:

 

学术报告 8位美中专家将作专题学术报告,6个中医PDA和西医CME学分。

纽约州医学委员会执行秘书Monahan先生将介绍纽约针灸法及立法过程;

哈佛大学Kathleen Hui医学博士将介绍应用先进fMRI研究针灸后大脑产生的变化和机理的最新进展;妇科专家Sung医学博士将介绍针灸治疗不孕症临床研究的最新结果;林榕生中医师将介绍多年潜心研究针刺手法治疗常见病的临床经验。其它题目及详情请见会议通知和特刊。

庆祝晚宴 针灸历史电影、传统中国文艺表演、精美中式晚餐、颁奖仪式

前美国政府发言人,赖斯顿的儿子汤姆赖斯顿将应邀作特别讲演

留学贴士:跳出自费留学八大误区

中青在线: 近年来,自费出国留学人数正在快速增长,但其中不少人想法上存在一些误解

误解一:获得国外学校录取,就等于能出国。这是不少初办出国留学者及家长容易产生的误区。有学校或培训机构接收你,这只是首要条件,更重要的是要申请到出国护照和该国驻华使领馆的学生签证。

前者只要申请人出示外国学校的录取通知书,一般在国内大部分城市都能取得,而签证往往不能很顺利获得,这恰恰是出国留学的难点所在。

误解二:有了足够的银行存款证明,获得签证就八九不离十。各国使领馆的签证官员在评估申请人是否真正去留学时,往往第一考虑的因素,就是申请人本人或其家庭、或其担保人的经济能力。还要核实你的存款证明的真实性,调查其来源的真假。其次,除经济能力外,签证官在评估你的申请时还要考虑诸如是否有移民倾向,所选择的学校及课程是否真的对你很有帮助等问题,最后才能做出签证与否的决定。

误解三:在国外没有亲戚,就不能申请出国留学。几年前,国内有些地区的公安部门确实存在申请护照时,必须有国外亲戚做经济担保人的规定,但现在已经没有这些规定了。

误解四:有国外的亲戚朋友做经济担保人,比国内的经济担保人更有优势。如果你在国内直系亲属(如父母、叔伯阿姨、兄弟姐妹)有足够的经济能力做你的经济赞助人,就比你在国外的非亲非故的朋友做担保人更令签证官员相信其真实性。

误解五:没有英文成绩,就不能申请出国留学。事实是几乎任何一个国家,没有英文成绩的人都可以去留学,只是还要考虑到你的年龄和所要读的课程而已。各个国家在这个问题上都有不同的规定。

误解六:有了英文成绩,就能报读任何大学和科目。只能说,有了英文成绩,就能较容易申请到而已,但不是绝对的。

误解七:获得留学签证,就等于能在国外半工半读。事实是,只有极少数国家(如澳大利亚、新西兰)规定某些学生签证每周可以工作15—20小时。有些国家是严禁学生做兼职的(如英国等),有些国家则要求学生到达该国后必须向有关部门申请后才可以工作(如美国等)

误解八:在国外读完高中,就能理所当然地进入当地的大学就读。诚然,进入国外大学不像国内竞争那么激烈,这也是国内很多家长把孩子送出去的重要原因。不过,若你在高中最后一年的成绩不理想(如有些科目达不到及格的成绩),则直接申请大学就有一定的困难,特别是想进入一流的大学,就更加困难了。但只要你有良好的高中成绩,进入大学比起在国内来说还是要容易得多。

该营造什么样的节日文化 (南桥)

10月初的长假期间,大陆各地各种文化节如雨后春笋一般涌现,比如笔者就发现某地举办了蟹文化节。文化节上还邀请相声演员、笑星前去捧场。这真是有趣,蟹文化是什么文化,横行霸道的文化吗?乌鲁木齐也在举办孔子文化节孔子文化节还有些文化味,而山西解州的关公文化节、广东鼎湖山的国际登山节、山东日照的浮来山福寿文化节就有些让人眼花。再看北京的第三届双胞胎文化节、四川郫县的豆瓣文化节,则从高尚流向滑稽了。节日由好变俗,就坏在狭义地往文化上去套。清华大学原校长梅贻琦有句名言:大学者,非大楼也,大师之谓也。套用此思路,似乎也可以说:文化节者,非有文化之名也,应行文化之实也。

 

大家知道,这些节日往往都是某某搭台,经济唱戏,为的是长假期间的商机,未必要弘扬什么文化。如此,就像是把文化给绑架了。如果是游客或消费者不交钱来文化,文化可能要被撕票。人们最终从这些文化节上领出来的文化,可能只是一种拙劣模仿。有时候举办者为装点出一点文化,请一些他们所以为的文化人去捧场,如一些相声演员、小品演员、二流歌星。这些文化人被请去,往往适得其反,不是给文化添砖加瓦,而是给文化掘墓。文化节要彰显的区域文化,怎应笼而统之地被流行文化稀释得无影无踪?支付给歌手、演员们的巨大投资,何不用来扶持地区的文化呢?宁夏农民诗人张联,当地政府每月给其发放200元人民币津贴,传为佳话。假若其他的文化机构,不是花钱请歌星影星,而是成立相关基金,扶持本地文化人、本地作品,那该是多大的幸事! 节日期间,重新把目光转向各自的区域,不再是一窝蜂拥挤到同样一些景点,这是消费选择多元化的体现,是巨大进步。然而纷纷将地区节日冠以文化之名,反显得对本区域缺乏足够的自信。很多地区不但有文化节,还嫌其不够空洞,另加国际二字。笔者认识的一些外籍教师曾被拉去冒充这些所谓国际文化节上的外商,让人哭笑不得。

 

在美国这几年,笔者生活的地方也有各自的地方节日。比如在雪城,朋友们参加过苹果节草莓节广场爵士音乐节”……在西弗吉尼亚,仅仅在今年暑假,我们就体验了热狗节牛排节墨西哥辣汤节希腊节山顶节”……本周末有南瓜节11月份还会有国际节”……其中没有一个冠以某某文化节,却润物细无声地体现了浓郁的区域文化。这不单是用词的不同,在思路上也很不一样。比如在西弗吉尼亚的节日期间,人们不会去华盛顿、好莱坞请个大腕(明星)来表演,以示自己跟紧潮流文化。这里从表演,到活动的组织,人员多来自当地社区。大家自得其乐,活动完了台子一收,各自消失在不同的岗位上。如此,不也很好吗?作为一个藏才于民的国度,中国发动民间的潜能,举办这种社区型的节日,社办、社享、社治,根本不算什么难事。关键是组织者脑筋没有转过来,所以只好止于二流,以实际上毫无文化的模仿而告终。记得以前有个同事说她在复旦大学听过余秋雨演讲。笔者问怎样,她说:还好,可惜动不动就提文化,十分败胃口。同样,在人们把目光转回到各自的区域时,提文化节就有文化了?

China's GDP expected to grow 10.5% in 2006

China's gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to rise by 10.5 percent in 2006, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), a major official think tank, said in a report. The CASS report, made available to Xinhua Wednesday, also forecast that the country's economic growth rate would slow to 10.1 percent in 2007, thanks to the government's macro control policies. The National Bureau of Statistics had earlier estimated the country's growth in the first half year at 10.9 percent.

中國明年将招考公务员12000 续向基层边远地区倾斜

2007年中央机关及其直属机构考试录用公务员工作即将开始,报名和考试时间也已确定,届时考生可在人事部网站及相关网站上查询招考信息。 今年共有89个中央机关及其直属机构和参照公务员法管理的单位面向社会公开招考12000余人。本次招考全部采取网络报名的方式进行,报名时间为20061014日至24日。公共科目笔试将于20061125日在全国各省会城市、自治区首府、直辖市和个别较大的城市同时举行。今年的招考工作主要有四个特点:

  一是严格执行《关于引导和鼓励高校毕业生面向基层就业的意见》的文件精神,继续提高录取具有基层工作经历的高校毕业生的比例。中组部、人事部要求,中央机关及其省级直属机构录用计划中,用于招录具有2年以上基层工作经历的高校毕业生的计划数必须高于计划总数的三分之一。其中,中央国家行政机关及其省级直属机构录用计划中,用于招录具有2年以上基层工作经历的高校毕业生的计划数必须达到计划总数的40%

  二是招考政策继续向基层艰苦边远地区倾斜。为积极引导和鼓励高校毕业生面向基层就业,促进青年人才的健康成长,改善基层党政机关人才队伍的结构,促进城乡和区域经济的协调发展,对报考基层岗位、特别是西部艰苦边远地区岗位的,采取放宽招考条件、划定单独合格分数线等措施,以引导更多的高校毕业生到西部去,到基层去。

  三是进一步采取措施便利考生报考。今年将有25个省区市的考生,都可以实现网上确认,预计网上确认的考生人数将达到报考总人数的90%以上。同时,农村特困人员和城市低保人员继续享受减免考务费用的政策。

  四是进一步规范公务员面试工作。中组部、人事部明确要求,招录机关的面试公告都要通过人事部网站面向社会公布,接受社会监督。两部门还要求,在中央机关招考中全面推行考官持证上岗制度,各招录机关必须有一定比例的考官持有考官证书,担任面试主考官的,必须持证上岗。

  中央组织部、人事部强调,报考者必须牢固树立诚信意识,遵守诚信承诺书的有关规定,提交的材料应当真实、准确,凡弄虚作假的,一经查实,即取消考试资格或录用资格。报考者必须严格遵守考试纪律,对发生考试舞弊行为的,将给予三年内不准报考公务员的处理,情节严重的,将移送司法机关处理。中央组织部、人事部再次郑重声明,本次考试不指定考试辅导用书,不举办也不委托任何机构举办考试辅导培训班。因为公务员考试是一种能力考试,这种能力是靠平时积累获得的,是综合性的,临时突击和死记硬背是没有用的。目前社会上出现的任何以公务员考试命题组、考试教材编委会、人事部授权培训机构等名义举办的有关2007年考试辅导班、辅导网站或发行的出版物等,均与本次考试无关,只会增加考生负担。敬请广大报考者提高警惕,切勿上当受骗。

王世本 富樂頓州大管家婆 (WJ王善言)

富樂頓加州州立大學目前為加州州立大學系統下規模最大的大學,包括研究生在內有近三萬六千名學生。學生除上課外,從住宿、財務支援、心理及衛生諮詢等方面都需要學生事務管理部門協助,華裔副校長(Associate Vice President)王世本肩負起主管學生事務的重任。

王世本指出,該校目前是加州僅次於洛杉磯加大規模第二的大學,亞裔學生比率達22%。他的工作不直接與學生打交道,主要在確保殘障學生服務、財務支援、住宿、學生事務研究、身心諮詢等部門主管各司其職,謹守崗位。

現年57歲的王世本出生於中國大陸山東省,而後舉家遷往香港定居。他17歲來美,擁有臨床微生物學學士及高等教育博士學位。他提及,當年也曾教過書,後來發現他對行政工作更有興趣。而行政工作需要很好的溝通技巧與人際互動技術,他由於從小外向,還能勝任愉快。但他不諱言,在職場說話要拿捏準確是門大學問。

他指出,中國大陸高等教育則是近十年才發展學生事務服務,惟目前培訓的相關人才有限。中國教育制度歷經改變,如大學過去只招收25歲以下單身男女,2001年中國教育部將結婚與否的限制拿掉後,由於不同背景的大學生群聚一堂,也產生新的問題。

The support for the Board was confirmed in writing with the returned Blue Feedback Sheets (One voted no on the Sheet). On Oct 11, the Board members elected Tong Zhongyi as the President of the Board. In the process of electing the President, the NJ member herself preferred not to serve on the Board, hence her name was not included in the final list. The following 14 alumni formed the 2nd ECNUAAA Board.

中国海归就业集中五大热门行业

改革开放以来,中国回国留学人员以年均13%的速度增长,进入全国各地留学人员创业园的就有近万人,其中90%以上拥有博士或硕士学位。目前海归就业较为集中的行业包括:

1.电讯行业: 因其特殊的行业性质而保持了较高的利润和人员增长态势,加之通信行业的复苏,已迎一个新的发展高潮。特别是从去年开始,NGN3GIPTV等新技术逐渐成熟,从固定电话到手机再到今天的3G,技术的日新月异,对于在国外学习直接吸纳国际先进技术思潮的海归而言,无疑提供了巨大的发展空间。

2.房地产: 近年来,建筑行业在招聘数量上一直稳居前10位。如工民建管理人员、项目经理、工程造价管理人员、建筑师以及会计师等,都急需各类国际化人才。而且,随着建筑、房地产国际化发展,越来越多的企业要求人才能熟练掌握至少一门外语,并了解一些国际惯例和国际条约,而这正是海归的长处。

3.金融行业: 中国加入世界贸易组织后,金融将逐渐对外资开放,随着基金业、证券业、保险业、银行业的服务向多样化和专业化发展,同时外资银行不断进入,合资基金公司逐渐增加,金融人才的短缺将更为明显。特别是对投资银行、资产证券化、计算机软件开发与应用、咨询评估、国外商业信贷分析、风险管理的国际化人才产生迫切的新需求。

4.物流业: 物流被誉为21世纪的朝阳产业。它涵盖了国民经济中的海陆空交通、运输、仓储、采购、供应、配送、流通加工、信息、连锁销售、制造业以及与物流相关的众多行业。加上北京奥运、上海世博等越来越多的国际盛会由中国来承办,与国际接轨的物流行业高级人才亦非常缺乏。

5.IT: 尽管国内电子商务发展多年,但在金融信用、网上支付手段等领域仍处于初级阶段。在日新月异的IT业界,海外学习先进的理念,成为海归们重要的制胜法宝。特别是目前紧缺的程序测试工程师、项目经理等。这些人才不仅要求要具有宏观把握的能力,还要求具有创新性思维,国外课堂与案例紧密结合的教学模式,往往培养出的专业人才更加具备创新能力,这也成为他们被国内IT企业看中的重要一点。

此外,国内新兴的咨询业、传媒业(广告,媒体,出版社)、网络游戏,也成为海归们施展才华的重要领域。而北京、上海、深圳、广州等国内发达城市,几乎成为所有海归的首先就业区域,而一些不发达的内陆城市却鲜有人问津,海归人才分布呈现明显的不均衡性。

Renmin University Presidnet Baochen Ji visiting Cornell (Yang Danhua)

The President of Renmin University Baochen Ji 纪宝成 is visiting Cornell these days and he gave a speech on Monday afternoon on the topic of the “Achievements and Challenges (- things that are insufficient and irrational) of China's High Education”.  He also pointed out some possible solutions. The followings are the outline of his speech.
 
In summary, he felt the major achievements are as follows:
* Rapid expansion in scale;
* Change of ways in the whole system, such as: management, investment, relationship between government and institutes, and students' job-recruiting;
* Change in the structure - More diversified:
Some are research oriented, some are teaching-oriented, some are vocational training oriented; some are comprehensive, some are multi-disciplinary, some are mono-disciplinary; some are large, some are median-sized, and some are small;
* People's ideas about what high education are both at academic level and societal level:
    High education is for all, rather than for the elite only.
    Academic freedom…..
 
Major insufficiencies are:
1) Funding;
2) Social Expectation:  Although people realized that high education is to educate the majority, but they require graduates to be elite.
3) Lack of Faculty: the increase in the number of students outpaced the increase in the number faculty members.
 
Things that are Irrational:
1) Tuition
2) The promotion of polytechnic schools to universities is not selective enough. 
3) Loan-taking for facility construction: school might not have enough financial ability to take that large amount of loans, but they still borrowed.
 
The four possible solutions he pointed out were:
1) limit the speed of expansion, making it comparable to the growth of economy;
2) Raise the government investment rate: reach 4% (of yearly GDP) at year 2010;
3) Improve Vocational Education and change the way of admission/enrollment and curricula;
4) Improve educational quality.

中国公派留学人员97%返华

中国教育部副部长章新胜在北京举行的中国教育国际交流协会成立25周年庆祝大会上说,1996年至20059月底,中国共派出各类国家公派留学人员22000人,有18100人按期回国,回归率达到97.02%,在世界各个发展中国家,特别是人口大国中,位居世界前茅。中国将进一步创新和完善国家公派出国留学工作的管理体制与运行机制,扩大出国留学工作的规模,到2010年,中国将争取当年出国留学人员总数达到20万人,其中国家公派出国留学人数达到1万人,2020年,当年出国留学人员总数达到30万人,其中国家公派出国留学人数达到2万人。

 

据统计,从1978年改革开放到2005年底,中国各类出国留学人数一共93.34万人,回国工作人数23.29万人。尤其是上世纪90年代初党中央提出支持留学,鼓励回国,来去自由的留学工作方针以来,各类出国留学人员已近82万人。 进入新世纪后,中国每年约有12万人出国留学。2006年全国公派留学人数接近7000人,比2000年翻了一番多。目前在中国科学院院士和中国工程院院士中分别有81%和54%以上都有留学经历。在各大专院校的领导中有70%以上有留学经历。

FBI姓名调查的程序及有关最新数据 (张哲瑞)

美国联邦调查局(FBI)是美国司法部的核心调查机构,其主要责任就是防止暴力犯罪、腐败、恐怖袭击等的发生,保护国家的安全。而姓名调查就是联邦调查局的一项重要工作。所谓姓名调查,就是指联邦调查局按照申请机构提交的申请,对提交的姓名进行背景调查。申请的提交机构一般包括联邦机构、国会的相关委员会、联邦司法机构,以及州和地方的司法机构等。但姓名调查最主要的申请人,还是美国移民局。以2005财政年为例,联邦调查局收到的姓名调查案件共有3,346,435例,而其中,由美国移民局提交的就有1,512,256例,占到了总数的45%。到2005年末,移民局提交的1,524,340例姓名调查已经被FBI处理完,还有233,806例等待处理。 一般来说,一个人的姓名提交到FBI处理后会有三种不同的情况:通过计算机检查立即做出无记录处理。无记录表示FBI的数据中没有关于此姓名的记录,姓名调查即通过;第二种情况FBI需要经过第二次人工检查确定无记录,第三种情况就需要对联邦调查局的记录再次进行重复检索。

2005年的数据为例:

◆移民局提交的68%的姓名在最初的电脑调查之后就被确定为无记录。也就是说,这些姓名立即被下载转存到磁带中,交还给移民局。

◆经过第二次的人工调查,22%的姓名被确定无记录,这个调查期限一般为3060天。

◆而剩下的10%的姓名责需要经过对联邦调查局记录的再次重复检索,而这个查找分析的过程也将需要较长的时间,有可能是一年以上。并且联邦调查局现存的积压调查案件也将推迟调查的完成时间。

现存姓名调查案件的积压是有多方面原因的:特别是姓名调查原则的改革使联邦调查局不得不对大量的姓名进行了重复调查。并且目前, 提交的调查案件数量也在急剧增加。此外,还有一些因素将影响案件的调查速度,例如:大众化的名字,记录的难以获取,申请人对姓名的信息提供过少等。

 

为了解决积压问题,FBI需要同时进行短期的改善计划和长期的解决计划。短期计划包括:

◆增加工作人员,对工作人员进行培训;

◆改善数据库;

◆与其它相关的工作机构进行合作;

◆与申请的提交机构进行沟通,加大信息的交流等。

 

而长期的解决计划则主要解决以下几方面的问题:

◆目前的纸制的申请和信息需要在多于265个的不同地方提取,这将造成处理的长时间延迟;

◆数据库建设的不完善;

◆以及,中央数据系统不能很好及时地促进文件和信息的调查,甚至会产生阻碍。

姓名调查是一种为有需要的机构提供的服务,所以在调查过程中,联邦调查局会按照申请机构在申请中明示或暗示的先后调查顺序完成对提交姓名的调查,并及时地将结果通知相关申请机构。FBI不再接受来自公众个人的关于姓名调查结果的查询。对于移民申请人来说,只能向USCIS查询调查结果。

FY-2008 H-1B新名额: 给即将硕士毕业的学生(梁勇)

2007财政年度的H1B名额(H-1B签证最早开始日期从2006101日起算)早早在2006525日财政年度尚未开始前四个多月就爆满。新一轮H-1B名额的争夺将从200741日开始(H1B签证起始日期为2007101日)。如果美国移民法规没有任何修改的情况下,那么2008财政年度H1B配额不变,对于拥有美国大学学士学位或相等学/经历的申请人仍为65000个名额,另有额外20000个名额提供给拥有美国硕士或硕士以上学位的申请人。鉴于今年H1B名额早早就被争抢殆尽,2008财政年度的H1B名额很有可能会更以迅雷不及掩耳之势一扫而光。梁勇律师事务所建议有意毕业后申请工作签证留美工作的学生,应及早考虑H1B的申请问题,并相应安排毕业时间,保证合法身份的连续性。

 

利用硕士或硕士以上学位的配额申请工作签证的学生必须完成毕业论文,很多错过200765000 H1B配额的申请人想利用配给硕士或硕士以上学位的20000个名额,但是由于很多人还没有最后完成毕业论文,所以没有完成学位,也因此没有资格利用硕士或硕士以上学位的配额提出申请。所以,如果申请人在20000个名额用完以前没能够最后完成学位,那么将错过整整一年的申请名额。因此建议有意利用硕士或硕士以上学位配额申请的学生应提早完成毕业论文,避免在F-1J-1OPT期间结束后在H1B批准前身份上出现空档从而失去合法身份。

 

1、正常在56月份毕业的学生:有意利用美国硕士或硕士以上学位申请H1B名额的申请人,在递交申请材料时必须是已经拿到硕士学位。若是正常在56月份毕业的学生,很难保证在毕业时还有H-1B名额,即使有名额的情况能够申请H-1B的时间也所剩不多。若是毕业后使用OPT工作而等待隔年再申请H-1B的话,则要注意OPT 的到期时间。由于美国移民法要求学生在毕业前要提出OPT的申请,而OPT的有效时间为一年,通常56月毕业学生的OPT到期日都在57月,即使有60天的宽限期,也会因为过了宽限期而无法连接101日开始的H-1B而导致必须回母国签证。因此,这一类的毕业生最好将OPT的到期日拖延到隔年的8月以后。

 

2、提早毕业:我们很难预测美国硕士或硕士以上学位的名额何时会被用完,但是递交申请的时间越迟,2008财政年度的配额被瓜分干净的可能性就越大。因此即将于2007年毕业的学生可以考虑争取在200741之前完成毕业论文及相关的学分,即使还没有拿到那一张硕士学位的证书,只要学校能够出具已经完成所有学分及论文的证明,就可以以硕士以上学位的名额来提出H-1B 的申请。

 

3、延后毕业:如果毕业生不能够在200741日之前完成毕业论文及所有的学分,那么也可考虑继续保持学生身份,在秋季之后完成论文并在年底取得硕士学位,并在毕业前提出OPT的申请,从而充分利用一年(对F-1学生)或十八个月(对J-1学生)的OPT期间来找工作及申请H-1B。如果一个F-1学生在12月毕业,那么直到次年的12月他都拥有OPT的合法身份,从而容许其雇主不慌不忙的在次年41日为该学生提出H1B申请,签证开始日期为次年101日,从而保证合法身份的连贯。

 

4、利用学士学位的H-1B配合申请:如果雇主提供的职位并不要求硕士或硕士以上学位,那么可以利用大学学位来申请65000个学士学位的名额并在200741日递交申请。或者利用大学学位所学与或硕士学位所学不同,但是找到工作却是与硕士所学相关的话,也可以利用大学的学位及硕士的的学分来作合适的学位认证并提出65000个学士学位额额的H-1B申请。梁勇律师事务所就曾经为不少大学学位与硕士学位所学不同,或正在就读硕士的学生顺利提出H-1B的申请。

 

5、与雇主充分沟通及早准备:距离200741H-1B新名额开始接受申请不到六个月时间,有意利用2008财政年度H1B配合申请美国工作签证的学生应提早准备。如果拖到20073月再考虑工作或者身份问题,那么就为时已晚。通病常学生要到雇主的协助并支持其工作签证的申请需要很多时间的交涉。尤其对于H1B申请不甚熟悉的雇主,可能会很难理解为何一定要早早在半年之前就提交申请。

因此向不明情况的雇主说明提早H1B申请的必要性至关重要。只有学生和雇主之间相互协作提早准备才能保证工作签证申请的顺利。梁勇律师事务也将于20071月份开始接受处理H1B新名额案件的申请,这样既也可避免过早行事,也能在有充裕的时间在41日之前完成案件并顺利提出申请。

Chinese rich with $1.59 trln worth of wealth

Recent statistics show that there are about 320 thousand rich people in the Chinese mainland, with a total wealth $1.59 trillion, making China second on the top-10 list of rich people in Asia, the first being Japan.

Although of the rich Chinese from Hong Kong have the highest personal wealth, the Chinese mainland still ranks second, with each of the rich there having an average wealth of $5 million.

 

Though China only contributes 13.5% of rich people to the Asian-Pacific Region, their impressive personal wealth gains them a high mark, thanks to the rapid economic growth of the country. The number of extremely rich people in China is growing very fast, too. As a matter of fact, 29.1% of Asian extremely rich people came from the country, especially the big cities in 2005, according to a probe that year. Rich people in China gained their wealth through industrial and commercial investment, funds and stock right. However, only 14% of their investment is used to buy stock shares, the lowest in the eight world markets.

留美签证为何让人感觉难

   一个值得注意的现象是,现在无论在中国什么地方谈论留学,只要一提到来美国留学,人们的第一反应似乎就是,来美国太难了。 旧金山大学负责国际事务的副总裁斯坦利内尔先生、美国驻华大使馆资深签证官和留学专家在接受中国《青年时讯》采访时,分别表达了他们自己对这一问题的立场,以及对这一问题的澄清。

 

中国留学中介公司常误导

   接受专访的专家表示,之所以会出现这种情况,在很大程度上都跟中国的留学中介公司的误导脱不了干系。与此同时,美国驻华大使馆资深签证官在接受专访时也表示,人们对美国发放签证政策有很多不了解的地方。 美国本身确实有非常严格的留学生选拔制度,这当然也包括它的签证制度。另外关键的一点是,美国的签证制度和留学制度并不是中国留学中介挣钱的好地方。美国对文件造假、签证腐败等问题都有严格的防范措施,而且,美国签证官特别忌讳经过中介公司包装或培训后的申请人,因此,对于中介公司千篇一律的回答签证官问话的说法非常讨厌和反感。 当然,美国在“911”之后,采取了更加严格的签证政策,也使得很多想去美国的人望而却步。但是,并不为中国人所了解的一点就是,美国每年都增加了对中国留学签证的发放,事实上是由于美国发放留学签证的速度远远赶不上中国申请去美国留学人员增长的速度,这就导致了大量的、美国并不怎么需要的中国人的申请被拒绝。

 

美签证问题非针对中国

   旧金山大学负责国际事务的副总裁斯坦利内尔先生说,美国希望招收中国留学生的原因主要有三个:第一,中国有世界上非常优质的生源。他特别提到了北京大学和清华大学的学生素质;第二,美国要与包括中国在内的东亚国家发展关系,就必须接受来自这些国家的留学生;第三,美国有极具竞争力的大学教育制度,值得中国人去那里学习。 内尔先生在谈及美国签证问题时说,美国签证问题不是一个专门针对中国的问题,而是对所有国家的问题;在美国的外国学生也有问题,但是,他不能够明确说出是哪个国家的留学生在美国的问题比较多,但是,肯定不是中国的学生。他说,即使美国和日本是免签证的国家,但是,还是有很多日本人抱怨美国的签证政策的。美国驻华使馆资深签证官说,从中国的签证申请人数方面来看,在过去五年里,2003年是一个低谷,申请人数为36万,而2001年的申请人数就达47.2万人。不过,2004年的申请人数开始恢复,预计能接近40万人。美国商务部的统计数字显示,2004年前五个月抵达美国的中国人比去年同期增加了33%,中国赴美人数和美国来华人数都开始恢复性增长。

来美中国留学生数一直稳定

   这位签证官还说:我想今后会有越来越多的中国人出国旅游,越来越多的中国人从国外回来。我们已经看到,许多中国留学生回到中国,许多去美国的访问学者也回到中国……‘911’后,我们平均每年向中国大陆公民签发20多万份签证。2002年,我们签发了15万份。2003年,签发了将近20万份。2004年的签证数量还会是20多万份。因此,即使是‘911’之后,我们发给中国人的签证也达50多万份。从来不愿提及拒签率的美国签证官在接受《青年时讯》独家专访时说,中国大陆成功获得签证的人数与申请人数之比大约是35%70%左右。这也就是说,拒签率是30%65%左右。 这位签证官说,即使是拒签率高达65%的时候,他们在发放签证时还是犯了很多错误,也就说,让不该去美国的中国人去了美国。 这位签证官说,现在要处理的签证申请特别多,所以,每个申请人只有这三分钟左右的面试时间。还有,如果给一个申请人的时间越长,那么,其他申请人等待的时间就越长。这就使得有的人早上来排队,但直到晚上八九点钟可能还拿不到签证。 签证官还举例说,如果你想来美国读博士学位,你需要五年的时间和至少十万美元的资金,那你会觉得是做五年的读书计划难?还是准备十万美元的钱难?还是办签证难?与付出的时间、金钱和付出的努力相比,签证只是你整个赴美过程中非常小的一部分。你今天给使馆打个电话,几天后就能来使馆面签。如果你今天去申请哈佛大学,你可能到明年4月或5月才有消息。与整个留学过程相比,办签证只占很短的一段时间。这位签证官还说,来美国留学的中国学生数一直是稳定的。

亲属成功移民问答

   提出取消临时绿卡转为正式绿卡的共同请求时,所要提交的文件有I-751表及其相关的证明资料和费用。这些证明资料包括:

   (1) 共同居住的证明:表明有共同居住权或所有权的房屋租赁协议、房契或房屋贷款合同。不能提交载明有双方姓名的这些文件,就可能使移民局对婚姻的合法性提出质疑,因此,在提交取消临时绿卡申请时,最好附具有对此作出解释的双方宣誓声明书。

   2)对其它财产拥有共同所有权或共同责任的财务状况资料。这些资料主要有:由双方签署的银行贷款、共同信用帐户、车辆或生意财产的财权文书、共同的银行帐户以及其它的财产和债券文件。共同报税单也可表明对其它财产所拥有的共同所有权和共同责任。

   3)婚生子女的出生证明。

   4)提供两人以上的宣誓声明书:如果不能提出上述任何一种证明资料时,当事人就应提供取得临时绿卡后所认识他们的两名证人的宣誓声明书。该宣誓声明书应对婚姻关系的存在作证,包括以夫妻的名义出外社交,并一直居住在一起。

   5)证明有真实婚姻关系的其它资料:来自当事人雇主的人事档案以及其它的福利计划如保险单。家庭照片包括与双方父母和亲戚聚餐、游玩的照片,家庭水电费单据等等。

  21、对提出共同请求豁免有哪些法定条件?

   如果持临时绿卡的外籍人士因某种原因不能与原提出移民请求的美国公民或永久居民一道递交共同请求,就应提出共同请求豁免的申请,否则,就面临着临时绿卡的终止和递解出境的困局。持临时绿卡人士不能以原移民请求的配偶已死亡,婚姻已被解除或已被宣告无效,或原移民请求的配偶不愿提出共同请求等为理由提出豁免申请。当原提出移民请求的配偶已死亡,婚姻关系终止,外籍人士在未提交共同申请方面无过错,外籍人士及其子女遭到原提出移民请求的配偶或其父母的虐待,或持临时绿卡人士能证明终止其临时永久居民的身份将会对其造成极端的困难,持临时绿卡的人士就能提出申请以豁免共同请求这一要求。

   未与临时绿卡人士同时获得永久居民身份的子女也可提出这种豁免。这类豁免必须是在临时绿卡人士与其公民或永久居民配偶提出取消临时绿卡身份的共同请求时一併提出的。如果临时绿卡人士提出豁免申请,其子女是可以包含在其所提出的豁免申请之中的。

   在提交豁免申请时,应提交I751表格以及相关的证明文件和资料,缴纳当时法定的官方费用。

J-1 Waiver还没有拿到,没有PhD学位 是否可以申请NIW

   最近收到一些NIW申请者申请条件的询问,发现有一大部分申请者对申请资格有比较严重的误解,现在此解答大家的疑问。

   1J-1 Waiver还没有拿到,是否可以申请NIW

   J-1NIW的申请是没有冲突的,即使申请者正处于J-1身份,但是还是可以申请NIW国家利益豁免的。但是必须要注意的是,即使申请者NIW批准,若是没有拿到J-1豁免的话,是无法申请I-485在美国国内调整身份。比如某君在德州某大学用J-1做博士后,他在提出NIW五个月后获得了移民局的批准。但是若是这人在NIW批准后还没有拿到J-1 Waiver,或者J-1 Waiver正在处理中,那他就无法在美国国内提出I-485的申请并从J身份调整到绿卡。因此,在J1 Waiver还没有批准的情况下,具体应该如何从J-1拿到绿卡,最好咨询有丰富经验的律师。

   2、没有PhD学位能够提出NIW的申请吗?

   很多申请者认为只有PhD以上学位的才可以申请NIW国家利益豁免,事实上这个观点是错误的。NIW 申请的要求之一是Advance Degree,因此任何拥有硕士以上的学位的外国人都可以申请国家利益豁免,这包括拥有硕士学位者、PhD的在校学生,和已经拥有PHD学位的外国人。这些学位虽然并没有限制一定要在美国取得,但是必须是和美国相等(As Equivalent)的学位。在我们所接触到的NIW案件中,有很多申请还是PhD的在校生,有的甚至只有硕士学学位。

   上述的只是对于NIW申请者在学位和身份资格上的一些误解的澄清,至于具体如何申请国家利益豁免,申请者还是需要咨询经验丰富的律师。

赴加先留学还是先移民?

第一种:先留学后移民

   ◆适合家庭:1、家庭成员无一有资格做任何加拿大移民计划的主申请人;2、孩子已在加拿大读书,且所在省份有省提名技术移民计划;3、或孩子出国升学在即(一年之内)。

   ◆申请步骤:1、根据申请课程的不同,准备好相应的留学担保金。一般来说,学制两年的大专及硕士课程需要35万人民币以上的定期存款,而学制四年的本科课程则需要65万人民币以上的定期存款。这些定期存款至少已存入银行6个月以上,若未满18个月,还需提供18个月内的资金来源说明。2、根据孩子的学历、学习成绩、英语水平、职业兴趣等选择合适的学校和专业。应优先选择华人较少的公立院校、应用性强的专业(最好有CO-OP,即带薪实习)、有省提名技术移民计划的省份(如曼尼托巴省、纽宾士域省)读书。应注意避免温哥华、多伦多、蒙特利尔这样的大城市,一来留学生不可以打工,不利于将来就业;二来移民只能选择门槛相对较高的联邦或魁北克技术移民。3、读书期间应积极参与志愿者、带薪实习、与专业相关的课余打工之类的社会实践,并保持专业课成绩优良,获得文凭或学位后的2年内尽快找到和所学专业相关的工作,然后申请工作签证,再办理省提名技术移民。

   第二种:先移民后留学

   ◆适合家庭:1、家庭成员中有人符合条件做加拿大任何移民计划的主申请人;2、孩子将去加拿大读书,且有足够的移民准备时间(一般为两年);3、孩子年龄较小、家长不放心者以及想节省留学费用者。

   ◆申请步骤:1、根据家庭的实际情况选择合适的移民计划。如家长学历较高、英文良好、有丰富的工作经验和良好的职业背景者可考虑联邦技术移民;如家庭资产雄厚、具备全面的经营管理经验有能力承担投资成本,可考虑商业类的移民计划,如投资移民等。2、移民申请周期一般为一、二年,成本从技术移民的5~6万人民币到投资移民的80~90万人民币不等,成功率高于留学类签证。申请关键在于申请人本身条件与移民项目要求之间的匹配性、以及所委托的移民中介公司的整体实力和信誉,获得永久居住签证后可在体检之日起一年内随时登陆加拿大。3、根据孩子的在读年级、学习成绩、英文基础等选择合适的学校,还是以公立学校为主,需要提供最高学历证书及以往成绩,入学时间一般为每年9月份,大学或大专也可以15月份入学。至于英文补习,可参加学校开设的ESL课程。基础教育学费免费,高等教育只收取很少的学费(2000~3000元加币/年),且专业不受任何限制,就业也比国际学生更容易,家长亦可随时去加拿大陪伴或探望子女。
