Cultural Prosperity and Good Society in Taiwan: Reflections at the 30th Anniversary of the End of Martial Law

Friday, November 17, 2017
8:45 PM - 4:30 PM
UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library
Main Conference Room

Taiwan stands out as a shining example of smooth and successful transition from a traditional and authoritarian society to a modern and democratic society. The End of Martial Law in 1987 is obviously the turning point of this transition. To celebrate and reflect at the 30th anniversary of this remarkable turning point, the symposium focuses on the abiding theme of “cultural prosperity and good society,” because Taiwan’s achievements in these aspects are truly outstanding. Culturally, Taiwan manages to preserve the essence of tradition while embracing diversity, individuality and creativity, leading to cultural prosperities in film, arts, music, museum, and creative industries. Socially, Taiwan made admirable progresses in constructing civility (公德) and a viable civil society, and consequently, has witnessed the fast growth of societal forces.

Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a book talk by Scott Tong and a unique perspective on the transitions in China through the eyes of regular people.

A Village With My Name
Date: Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Time: 4:00-5:30pm
Location: Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, ASC 204, USC

About the Book
If you find yourself on the wrong side of history, no one tells yours. A Village with My Name: A Family History of China''''s Opening to the World is longtime public radio journalist Scott Tong''''s long view of China''''s links to the West, told through the lives of five people across five generations in his own family. He begins by pursuing the lives of relatives and ancestors whose stories are deliberately left out of the family conversation:
• A father of three, an enemy collaborator in World War II, exiled to a labor camp from which few survive
• An eight year-old girl educated by American missionaries, one of the first Chinese girls to read and run who becomes the accompanist for the Nanjing Glee Club.
• A toddler abandoned during China''''s civil war, for decades never mentioned by the father who left him behind.
The untold stories and history help fill in an oft-ignored chapter in Chinese history: the contribution of mainlanders who adopted the ideas, music and literature of the outside world. Although A Village with My Name is a personalized, historical telling, it addresses questions people around the world are asking today about globalization, national identity and drawbridges: when a society lurches from open to closed to open, what is the human cost? Why do bad economics happen to good protectionists? Are open trade and borders the historical norm, or the exception?

评论:港珠澳大桥岛隧工程总工程师林鸣:世界级超级工程是怎样被逼出来的?
在一个有陆地相连的区域附近,建造一个同等功能的跨海交通道路,是一件愚不可及的决定。
因为陆地建造道路更加容易和安全,受到破坏也容易修复,并且容易建立侧枝循环,。中国2009年12月15日正式动工的港珠澳大桥,连接香港、珠海、澳门,设计全长约55公里,目前已经进入百日冲刺阶段。
这是一项祸国殃民的决策,这是一项后患无穷的建设。

这个中国科学院中国工程院21世纪最具代表性的智能障碍。
这是一个国家的科学机构和科学家被洗脑以后的群体性反智主义的表现。
这是继三峡大坝过程以后又一个殃及子孙后代的自我毁灭的壮举。
按照工程进度,大桥最迟将于明年年底前建成通车,不过最近有人质疑大桥的实用性,引起外界关注。

以下是质疑的文章和回应的文章,enjoy:
一座最大投资的跨海大桥
港珠澳跨海大桥工程全部投资约为1100亿元人民币,是目前世界跨海大桥投资最大的工程。
港珠澳大桥是连接香港、珠海、澳门的超大型跨海通道,全长55公里,建成后将成为世界最长的跨海大桥。 其中,工程量最大、技术难度最高的是长约29.6公里的桥—岛—隧集群的主体工程。主体工程“海中桥隧”长35.578公里,其中海底隧道长约6.75公里。建成后将会为 G4-京港澳高速以及 G94-珠三角环线高速的一部分。
港珠澳大桥沉管隧道是全球最长的公路沉管隧道和全球唯一的深埋沉管隧道,生产和安装技术有一系列创新,为世界海底隧道工程技术提供了独特的样本和宝贵的经验。

1983年,香港的建筑师胡应湘最早提出了建造港珠澳大桥想法;港珠澳大桥主体工程总工程师是:苏权科;
2009年12月15日,港珠澳大桥正式开工建设;
2011年5月15日,首个钢圆筒顺利下水;
2011年12月7日,十万平人工岛浮出水面;
2016年6月2日,“海豚他”顺利安装;
2016年6月29日,主体桥梁成功合拢;
2016年9月27日,港珠澳大桥主体桥梁正式贯通 ;
2017年5月25日,沉管隧道最终接头焊接合拢完成;
预计2017年年底或2018年建成通车 。
大桥建成后,香港与珠海、澳门之间4个小时陆路车程,将被缩短为半小时。

大桥的多项世界之最:
作为世界首例集桥梁、隧道和人工岛于一体的超级工程,英国《卫报》将港珠澳大桥评为“新世界七大奇迹”。事实上,港珠澳大桥也创下了多项“世界之最”和“中国之最”:
最长的跨海大桥:港珠澳大桥全长55公里,包括海中桥隧主体工程、三地连接线及口岸。
最长的钢铁大桥:港珠澳大桥有15公里为全钢结构钢箱梁。
最长的海底隧道:港珠澳大桥海底沉管隧道全长6.7公里。
最深的隧道:港珠澳大桥海底隧道最深处在海底48米。
最精准的深海对接:修建过程中,海底隧道沉管在海平面以下13-48米不等海底进行无人对接,对接误差在2厘米以内。
中国建设史上里程最长、投资最多、施工难度最大的跨海桥梁。
