Yesterday I was very happy and receive gifts from a friend of mine.  Three people, including my sister, my friend and I went to a bar, chatting and having wines. Both of them are doctors of law, so they were just talking about a shooting accident in New Zealand all night long! But thanks to the wines and music were good. In the hutongs (alleys) of Beijing, there are many secluded bars and bookstores, selling many interesting and nostalgic things. Last night I saw a German buy a recorder of 80s style. 
These alleys are wonderful. Every time I go to these alleys for a stroll, I can always get a sense of  novelty, with a combination of the east and the west. The enclosing walls are short, covered with the green tiles on the top. Pagoda tree are planted at both sides of the alleys, with a history of more than a hundred years. In these antique places, I can find a Chinese-ancient-style hand-fan, or postcards and posters of the old stars of 60s in the US. It's really a marvelous experience.
After getting out of the bar, it was 12 at midnight. Almost all the tourists were gone, the alleys were quiet, and the trees were whispering. The moon was high in the sky, accompanying us along the alley. 
The pictures are the postcards I received last night. :-) She knows that I'm a fan of the music in 60s; but why Martin Luther King? Do I look like him? :-)

佐藤謙一(日本):对于莫言先生获奖的感言
中國需要鼓勵,而不僅僅是批評。
今番莫言先生得獎,既是先生之榮耀,亦實是中國文學之幸,更是唐人社會之幸。
莫言先生雖是大陸體制內之作家,而我輩卻不應唯身份論,而否定其文學上之成就。先生之作品,底蘊深厚,擅以獨立之人格與家族脈絡而反映唐人社會之歷史變遷,此亦符合文學獎之一貫宗旨。
先生今番得獎後,於中國大陸之社會意義,則更為深刻:中國將第一次真正體會到身為文明國家的尊嚴感。
我輩長久以來,批評北平政府之不自由,批評北平政府對於文藝事業的嚴加管控。諾貝爾獎項雖為國際上最高之盛譽,其所頒之中國大陸公民,長久以來,卻皆為異見人士。北平政府對於此尷尬狀況之處理方式,已使中國於世界輿論中陷於野蠻與不自由之形象。
批評是為使其改正,而批評終究不如真正之肯定。對於莫言先生之肯定,對於先生雖處於體制內卻仍然具有極高文學水準之肯定,將使中國之風氣逐漸改善,使北平政府認知到:批評或讚譽,并非基於立場或身份之不同;讚譽,是願其進步,而批評,亦是願其進步。
前年劉先生獲獎,北平政府多有恐慌,以此為恥,亦對西方世界與國際輿論產生隔閡。而今次莫先生之得獎,將使中國有尊嚴的接受自北平建政以來,首次來自全世界之真正之褒揚。吾輩相信,北平政府亦將因此學會,如何有尊嚴的接受真正之批評。此為先生今番得獎之社會與歷史意義。
此吾輩之愚見。

Landing the Curiosity rover on Mars was a big feat for NASA, but we could not have done it without the work of small businesses.


On Wednesday, Sept. 19, NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden is joining Administrator Karen Mills of the Small Business Administration for a Google+ Hangout with ATA Engineering, one of the small businesses that made the Mars Science Laboratory mission landing a success.


Google+ members and reporters are welcome to join the discussion from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT Wednesday. Administrators Bolden and Mills will talk with representatives of ATA about their work to design and analyze the design of the entry, descent and landing process – known as "Seven Minutes of Terror" – as well as other systems operating the Curiosity rover.


You can join in the conversation on Wednesday by submitting your questions in the event comments below and on Twitter using the hashtag #AskNASA .


Otherwise, come back to the +NASA page on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. EDT to watch the Google+ Hangout.

We might not know the safety of the chemicals that surround us, but what we do know is that 99% of pregnant women in the U.S. now carry multiple toxic chemicals in their bodies. Scientists are increasingly implicating chemical buildup to rising incidence of numerous diseases, birth defects and developmental disabilities.

In the U.S., breast cancer increased 40% between 1973 and 1998; asthma doubled between 1980 and 1995; trouble conceiving and maintaining a pregnancy affected 40% more women in 2002 than in 1982; between 1997 and 2008 the prevalence of autism increased nearly 300% nationally. Nearly 1 in 6 American children is now affected by a learning or developmental disability.
