Waste reduction in Taiwan: music, love, and the great garbage assemblage
Monday, Feb 13, 2017, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
10383 Bunche Hall,UCLA

Talk by Nancy Guy, UCSD
Garbage in Taiwan is at the center of a musical assemblage that resonates beyond the confines of the nightly waste collection soundscape. Garbage trucks in Taiwan are musical: Beethoven's Für Elise or T. Badarzewska's Maiden's Prayer announce the garbage truck brigade's arrival at designated times and places throughout urban Taipei. Neighbors stream into the street for a turn at depositing their presorted waste into the proper receptacles. Taiwan''s semi-tropical climate, combined with a densely situated human population and the presence of well established rat and cockroach populations, makes garbage management a matter of daily urgency. In this paper, I take Taiwan's pop music from the early 1980s through to the present as evidence of ways in which everyday habits and practices of reckoning with waste have seeped into a wide range of sensibilities.

Nancy Guy is an ethnomusicologist whose broad interests include the musics of Taiwan and China, varieties of opera (including European and Chinese operas), music and politics, and the ecocritical study of music. Her first book, Peking Opera and Politics in Taiwan (University of Illinois Press, 2005), won the ASCAP Béla Bartók Award for Excellence in Ethnomusicology and was also named an "Outstanding Academic Title for 2006" by Choice. Guy''s second book, The Magic of Beverly Sills, focuses on the artistry and appeal of the beloved American coloratura soprano, and was published by University of Illinois Press in 2015. Guy is a Professor of Music at the University of California, San Diego.

Economic Cycles and Price Theory in Early Chinese Texts
Thursday, Feb 09, 2017,4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
10383 Bunche Hall, UCLA
Talk by Paul R. Goldin, University of Pennsylvania
The notion of cycles plays a crucial role in early Chinese economic thought. One such cycle, self-evident to anyone living in an agrarian society, is the year with its seasonal rhythm, but there are also multi-year cycles, including some that can be timed, such as the duodecennial cycle of Jupiter (and its antithesis, the Year Star 太歲). These cycles have two consequential features: they are foreseeable and they affect prices. A wise ruler will consequently buy goods when they are at their cheapest in the cycle, and subsequently sell them when they are at their most expensive. In practice, this will usually mean buying goods when most other people are selling, and selling goods when most other people are buying--a strategy known today as contrarian investing. Moreover, because extreme prices, especially for staples such as grain, can lead to social unrest, rulers should apply the same general insight to stabilize prices by buying and storing surpluses for subsequent sale in times of scarcity. This is the origin of the concept of the Ever-Normal Granary. Finally, the recognition of the cyclical nature of price fluctuations went hand in hand with the more general observation that goods are expensive when they are scarce and cheap when they are plentiful. This principle applies equally to money, in accordance with what we now call the quantity theory of money. By requiring that taxes be paid in coin rather than in kind, therefore, a shrewd ruler can raise the relative value of money, and thus ensure that goods will remain relatively cheap for him to purchase when necessary. Together with lucrative government monopolies (especially in the salt industry), such techniques were highly recommended because they promised to raise revenue for the sovereign without the need for onerous taxes.

Paul R. Goldin is a professor of Chinese thought in Dept. of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at University of Pennsylvania. His main area of research is Warring States China (5th to 3rd centuries B.C.). Although his focus is intellectual and cultural history, the study of this period is necessarily interdisciplinary, and his work also involves archaeology, art history, literature, philosophy, and religion.

China California Heart Watch说:留言于2017-02-07 15:29:48(第7条)
Dear Supporter ,
“China California Heart Watch” is a U.S. nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve the rural poor through teaching and clinical care in rural Yunnan Province, China. In 2017, China Cal is inviting students and others with an interest in health professions to come and learn with us about health care and pediatric cardiovascular disease in Yunnan Province, China.
Objective:
1. Create awareness of the problems of healthcare in rural China
2. Encourage students toward a career in public health, nursing, or medicine focused on underserved populations.
3. Increase support for China Cal charitable activities.
Location and Program: This year we are planning externship activities in different prefectures of Yunnan Province. We will have externships every month between May and December according to the schedule below:
May 12 – May 31
June 12 – June 30
July 12 – July 31
August 6 – August 25
September 4 – September 22
October 12 – October 31
November 6 – November 27
December 15 – December 28
There are 15 externship spots available every month.
About Yunnan Province. Yunnan has a population of 44 million people and is one of the poorest and most medically underserved regions of China. Yunnan is noted for a high level of ethnic diversity. 38% of the province''''s population are members of minorities. Minority groups have colorful customs and traditions, with interesting social structures such as the Mosuo people who practice matriarchal polyandry and the Wa people who are, to some extent, hunter gatherers.
Externship Description: Upon arrival in Dali, China, externs will undergo two days of training under the direction of Professor Robert Detrano (MD, PhD) from the UC Irvine School of Medicine. Professor Detrano will teach externs the basics of congenital heart disease in China and how to assist in the physical and ultrasound heart examination of children, and will acquaint them with rural Yunnan life. At the completion of the training, externs will travel to rural county centers where they will get hands on training from university faculty in how to examine, diagnose and refer children with congenital heart disease. Externs will also learn from our faculty and staff how we train rural obstetric doctors and nurses in the examination of newborns for heart disease.
Costs: We request that externs make a donation of $3,000 USD. This donation helps to fund China Cal’s charitable activities, including training rural doctors and supporting surgeries for children with congenital heart disease. The donation also includes all hotel accommodations, meals, and local travel during the externship. The donation is tax deductible in the United States.
Students must cover cost of their round-trip air ticket and visa. Non-Chinese citizens need a valid Chinese visa.

改革属相,以鹤鹿取代猪鼠 有利于中华各民族亲睦和谐
中国古代的术数家,拿十二种动物来配十二地支,组成子鼠、丑牛、寅虎、卯兔、辰龙、巳蛇、午马、未羊、申猴、酉鸡、戌狗、亥猪十二属相。又称十二生肖。每个人据其生年所处的地支,赋予一个属相。
印度、巴比伦、埃及、希腊、墨西哥也都有十二属相。缅甸则有八大属相。中国的十二属相和印度的差别只有两者,印度是狮,中国是虎;印度是金翅鸟,中国是鸡。其余的都相同,而且排列也一样。这表明,属相是普遍的历史人文现象。
伊斯兰教于公元7世纪传入中国,猪则逐渐变成回族最重要的禁忌。《古兰经》写道:“人们啊,你们应食地面上合义的、清洁的食物”,又说:“禁止你们吃自死物、血液、猪肉。”在中近东地区,由于气候炎热,水源短缺,使得猪常常带有病毒,所以人们自古就视猪为不洁之物,他们认为猪贪馋、懒惰、丑陋、愚蠢,在污泥中打滚,令人作呕、生厌。因此,世界上所有信仰伊斯兰教的人民,以及犹太民族,都有同样的禁忌。
我国回族不仅忌食猪肉,而且对其它民族盛过、做过猪肉的炊具、碗筷、器皿也不使用、不接触。同时由禁食猪肉又发展到禁用猪皮制的皮鞋、皮衣、皮带,禁用猪鬃制的毛刷、牙刷,不用含有猪油成份的肥皂、香脂等生活用品。穆斯林避讳猪字,把它称为“黑牲口”,或者用阿拉伯语译音为“狠基勒”。甚至连猪的同音字也忌讳,如姓朱的穆斯林改为姓黑。出生于猪年者,改称为属黑或属亥。
回族是我国民族大家庭中人口比较多的一个少数民族。据 1990年全国人口普查统计,回族人口为8,602,978人,其总数仅次于汉族、壮族和满族,居第四位。伊斯兰教为中国回、维吾尔等10个少数民族中群众信仰。这些少数民族总人口约2100万(相当于澳大利亚、或叙利亚、或罗马尼亚的人口总数)。在我国辽阔的土地上,北起黑龙江,南到海南岛,西起帕米尔高原,东至东海之滨,都有回族居住。而以宁夏、甘肃、青海、新疆、河南、河北、山东、云南等省区人数较多。
因此,每逢猪年都不免要在全国出现尴尬的局面。别的年份,春节晚会上都要加上代表性的标志,在许多生肖的前头都加上一个金字,如金鸡、金马、金虎……等等。一到猪年,春节晚会就只突出欢乐气氛,舍弃猪的图腾,不强调“今夕是何年”。据《亚洲华尔街日报》中文网络版报道,央视向各广告代理公司发出通知说:“中国是一个多民族国家,为了尊重穆斯林民族的宗教信仰,按上级有关部门的指示,我台在2007年的电视屏幕上回避有关猪的形象。”
可是仅仅在电视屏幕上淡化亥猪的属相,其他新闻媒体报刊杂志上猪的插图,市场上随处可见猪的年画、猪形玩具、金猪饰物则是无法取缔,无法掩盖的。人们在猪年春节把猪描绘得越是活蹦乱跳,越让千百万穆斯林同胞郁郁寡欢。
古人在原始社会生产力低下、认识自然能力极其有限的情况下,对动物的崇拜的原始信仰影响下产生了用来纪年、纪月的兽历。清代刘献《广阳杂记》说:“子何以属鼠也?曰:天开于子,不耗则其气不开。鼠,耗虫也。于是夜尚未央,正鼠得令之候,故子属鼠。……猪则饮食之外无一所知,故亥属猪。” 显而易见,十二生肖乃是由先人制定,相因成俗。那么在强调中华各民族大团结、同呼吸、共命运的今天,为什么非要固守陈规,不能加以变动呢?泱泱大国的国民何必要自找烦恼,强忍难堪局面呢?因此我倡议,淘汰猪鼠,用我国自古以来就视为吉祥动物的仙鹤和梅花鹿取而代之!
在我国,仙鹤飘逸的形象是长寿、成仙的象征。仙鹤也叫丹顶鹤、白鹤、鴜鷜,古籍文献中称其为“仙禽”。 鹤在人们心目中是祥瑞之鸟,其地位仅次于凤凰。它高雅的性情,庄重而不失美丽的黑白色羽翼,仙风道骨的白鹤被人称为“一品鸟”。各族人民常把仙鹤喻作是益年长寿的象征,飘逸雅致的仙鹤时常被诗人们视作主题并予以称颂。《淮南子•说林》云:“鹤寿千年,以极其游。”唐代诗人王建在《闲说》中也有“桃花百叶不成春,鹤寿千年也未神”的诗句。回族最著名的清真寺,即扬州的仙鹤寺。1275年,穆罕默德16世孙普哈丁游至扬州时修建了仙鹤寺,按照仙鹤的形状修建寺院也是普哈丁的主意。以仙鹤寺命名,并修建成仙鹤形状,无疑是一个大胆开放能够赢得扬州人欢迎和共鸣的创意;如果以鹤为亥,取代猪的属相,不仅回族同胞会高兴,我想其他民族也会欣然接受。
在十二生肖中,令人憎恶的形象不仅是猪,还有老鼠,俗称耗子。危害农林,草原,盗食粮食,破坏储藏物、建筑物等,并能传播鼠疫、流行性出血热、钩喘螺旋体病等病源。因此在我国的成语中提到耗子便说“贼目鼠眼”、“无能鼠辈”、“鼠目寸光”、“ 鼠肚鸡肠”等等,几乎没有一句好词儿。
在中国传统图案中,鹿是最常见的吉祥物,被人们称为“瑞兽”。鹿作为长寿仙兽,在古籍中也多有记载。因为鹿的谐音为“禄”,包涵着鸿福延绵、长寿康宁、祥和瑞兆等方面富有深刻的吉祥文化意蕴,是对和平美好生活向往的体现。因此我倡议,以鹿取代鼠的属相,以求皆大欢喜。
我党中央,特别注重发展和谐社会。显而易见,心灵的和谐,比人和自然的和谐更加重要。应该引起中央有关领导值得特别注意的是,下一个猪年(2019)很快就要到来,我国的权威机构如果能尽快向社会宣布:“改革属相,以鹤代猪,以鹿代鼠”,不但中国各族人民高兴,亚洲许多沿用十二属相、且又喜爱仙鹤与梅花鹿的国家——如日本、高丽民族都会非常欢迎!

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: March 5, 2017
Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even
larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline---including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others---and the study of "network science" has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.

The school "Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications" offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.
