September. 17. 2012 by lawnz –  Category: Health, People (No Comments)

When friends ask me help to fix their computers, if the computers are very old, I don’t like to fix them, especially it is hardware problem, I tell them get a new computer. very ofter I see doctors have similar attitude toward elderly, they would tell patient’s relatives your parents or grand parents are old, so it is common to have these kinds […]

September. 3. 2012 by lawnz –  Category: People, Politics, Work (No Comments)

My friend picks up this news about Gina Rinehart, people jealous of the wealthy should “spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising”. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/9511505/Gina-Rinehart-criticised-for-jealous-poor-remarks.html I think she a billionaire is a human being too, she has freedom of speech, right to express herself, she is not like Todd Akin, Akin works in our goverment and said: “If it’s a legitimate rape, […]

Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) serves on House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, his words: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” wow! it is hard to believe what his role is at our goverment, he should be doing something else he is good at.

Li Ao, a Taiwanese Nobel Prize nominee and historian, talks about Tibet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cQ5lZkiXpA Li Ao is a brave man, he risked his life to advocate democracy, he was jailed by KMT party. however his video raises some doubts and questions in my mind, he did not tell where he got those pictures, neither explained if he verified them true or false, and no interviews with any […]

Before Gabby Douglas won the olympic woman’s all-around gymnastics gold medal, I watched TV NBC program hosted by Bob Costas, he interviewed the fab 5 just won the team gold of 2012 women’s gymnastics, one question he asked was their early memory about gymnastics, Gabby Douglas said after she saw the gymnastics video, she said “I can do that”, that made the the rest […]

Obama signed new NDAA bill on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31st, 2011, NDAA stands for National Defense Authorizations Act (Senate Bill 1867).

Pianists

July. 12. 2012 by lawnz –  Category: Art, Music, People (No Comments)

You know there are literary thousands of pianists vying for top positions in classical music. China alone probably churns out over a hundred “world-class pianist” candidates every year. It’s become like a blood sport. Then there are all sorts of piano competitions to determine the best pianists — the Tchaikovsky Competition, Van Cliburn Competition, Richter Competition…. the list is long: […]

Pianist Yuja Wang

July. 7. 2012 by lawnz –  Category: Music, People (No Comments)

Yuja Wang is probably the most athletic of present-day classical pianists. Here she plays “Flight of the Bumble Bee” — normally a pretty fast piece – at about double the normal speed. I’m not saying I like it that fast, but it is pretty amazing. She was born in China, and, I think she still lives there when she’s not […]

Jeremy Lin

February. 20. 2012 by lawnz –  Category: People, Sports (No Comments)

It is nice to see the rise of Jeremy Lin, this guy plays real basketball, it is more fun to watch the whole team play than a self-serving individual, I watched only NBA playoffs on national TV channels, now I watch more NBA games, even at sports bar when games are not available on national TV channels. I remember when Tiger Wood just stopped playing […]
