您知道吗:SENIOR DISCOUNTS
来源:S.W. FW | 2014/3/1 1:34:18 | 浏览:17616 | 评论:1
Keep this list and send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount.  The girl at the register apologized and charged him less.  When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 get 10% off everything on the menu, every day.  Being of 'that' age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.  This incident prompted me to do some research , and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements.  I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50.
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.

由“最年轻院士”变巨贪想到啥
中纪委通报4人被捕:转移千万科研经费。中央纪委监察部网站10日公布了今年中央首轮巡视整改情况,其中包括科技部党组关于巡视整改情况的通报全文。通报披露,承担“转基因生物新品种培育”重大专项有关课题的中国农业大学教授、中国工程院院士李宁等被依法批捕。
正当世界各国的国民议论谁谁获得诺奖之际,四川美术学院的副教授黄小箭正忙着强吻自己的俩学生。除此之外,近日,中纪委通报了对科技部巡视整改的情况,5所大学7名教授因弄虚作假套取科技专项资金逾2500万元或被判刑、或被批捕,其中工程院最年轻院士李宁,不仅涉嫌转移科研经费上千万元,他甚至还是动物转基因领域领军人物。
看来,原本属于像牙塔的高校竟也变成了藏污纳垢的地方?常言道,“学为人师,行为世范”。然而, 当四川一月内三校长因基建落马、人民大学原招生就业处长蔡荣生受贿千万被捕等新闻频现报端时,人们才猛然惊觉:原来国内的高校,与外面的社会同样的不干净。按照此惯性思维,那就是,有权力的地方,便有权力寻租的可能。何况中国高校行政色彩浓厚,行政权、教育权、学术权不分,资源分配往往由行政高层说了算,不变为滋生腐败温床也难。高校腐败的“重灾区”主要集中在招生、后勤基建和科研资金的分配和使用上。中国科协一项调查显示,高校科研资金用于项目本身仅占40%左右,大量经费流失在项目之外。科技部长万钢曾用“愤怒”、“痛心”、“错愕”三词痛斥科研腐败。
据不完全统计,十八大以来,至少有34名高校领导或正接受调查,或已被移交司法机关。这些人,上至校长、书记,下至主任、处长,都是寄生于象牙塔内的“蛀虫”,必须清除。纵观眼下中国的反腐风向,可谓万箭,其中一箭就射向了科研、教育领域,这或体现了反腐“横无死角、纵无禁区”的宗旨。此可谓,十八大以来,从中央到地方,从官场到商场,反腐势头如火如荼,社会风气渐有改观,高校、科研机构亦需来场“大手术”。
科研反腐不应寄望于人心的自律,而应去除高校的“官本位”色彩,尽快建立约束高校领导权力的现代大学制度,并加强科研经费从申报到使用的监管。此次中纪委通报的套取经费事件中,一个引人注意的现象是,那些项目均是由各大部委牵头组织的,如卫生部、环保部、工业和信息化部等。既然是牵头者,就应该对项目的实施进展、经费的具体使用进行摸底监督,而不是立了项就撒手不管,甚至睁只眼闭只眼让造假者蒙混过关。把好验收关,不容松懈。梁石川
