  但是,傅昆萁又太高估了台湾的力量,同时又自相矛盾。如果“美国绝不会助台一臂之力”,哪来的第三次世界大战? 前南京军区副司令王洪光在2016年的环球时报-环球网年会上发言时表示,两岸将在2020年前爆发冲突,而解放军夺取台湾,是“以小时计(算)”。



  世界大势,浩浩荡荡,顺我者昌,逆我者亡。特朗普自打嘴巴,并非“爱中国”,而是因为“中国就摆在那”。不管怎么样的方式,台湾都必定会被大陆统一,这是谁都挡不住的事。就是第三次世界大战爆发 ,天也塌不下来。相信“王师北定中原日,家祭无忘告乃翁”这一天并不遥远。

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  留言于2017-02-07 15:29:48
评论:UPDATE - From The Chinese American Professors and Professionals Network (2017 No.03)
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.
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.
