Have Mandarin-speaking friends in Greater Boston?  Each week, I host a Tuesday evening (6:00-9:30 pm) bilingual Mandarin-English chat group in Harvard's Longwood Medical Area (LMA), inside the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).  Practice (and show off your skills in) both languages - English and Mandarin Chinese.

Story
Introduction
In past two years, completed REACH Intermediate (Harvard), Research Administration (Emmanuel College RAC/GCRA), NIH rDNA, and RTP (HSPH) Certificates.  Completing Capstone research and thesis after two years of graduate courses for Master of Science in Management (MSM in Research Administration) in Boston's Emmanuel College.  Have been working at Harvard for a VERY long time - there's SO much here! 

I've been vegan over half my life. That's longer than most human earthlings (and most NONHUMAN earthlings) have been alive.  All that time, I've been making connections for plant-based diets - and doing that through the Vegetarian Resource Center since 1993 (and before that through various strategies and structures.  

My observation is that the vegan *movement* is constituted by fellow humans who have awakened to moral sensitivity in our individual observations of the populated world around us, a world that filled plentifully with persons - not only human, but also nonhuman, and that all persons are such that moral consideration is due to all of them.  We cannot give that consideration individually; therefore, we must become persons of principle, who resolve our ethical duties towards other persons at a level of principle and self-regulation.  I believe in 'ahimsa' or 'dynamic injury' as the proper regulatory principle for human behavior.

I also believe that many practicing vegans have attached nonessentials to being vegan, which often are their political aspirations and their willingness to 'entitle' certain kinds of activity 'over against' things that they wish to reduce with the same energy with which they are holding out their idea of what veganism is.  I think that the idea of veganism is independent of that, tht it is defined BY (a) purely plant-based diets without the inclusion of honey or anything from animal or insect and (b) a principle of non-injury that is grounded in one's sense of the moral considerableness of personhood, regardless of how those persons act.  One's ability to recognize those claims in any particular case are abetted or abated by the context in which those others are experienced and how they impact us.  At the least, we have, I think as a vegan for ethical reasons, a duty to not cause needless harm to others, and those needless harms in mid-2014 would be harms for our clothing, food, shelter, medicinal ingredients, entertainment, etc.  

Where there are challenges to living by those principles, we need, I believe as an ethical vegan, to agitate and organize for effective means to realize optimal ways to realize those values in the material world where we find ourselves.
Bragging rights
I have enjoyed being vegan most of my natural life. Completed Master of Science in Management (MSM in Research Administration) in Boston's Emmanuel College with "an unprecedented A+" in my thesis. Was considered "most widely-read undergraduate" in a large state university in California.

Friends, Networking
The owner, Adam Penn, is among the most gracious human beings I have ever met. The food is pretty good all the time and sometimes rises to great excellence. As a social hangout (particularly for vegetarians and vegetarian-inclined person around Harvard Square), Veggie Planet is really the tops, in my estimateion.

When I came here, it was because reviews I had read on Yelp and elsewhere had said that their prices were lower. However, their prices are only slightly lower than the 1-2 other cleaners in the immediate 1-2 block vicinity but slightly higher than the prices of other cleaners up the street (up Huntington Avenue) past Brigham Circle (on the #39 bus line). The woman at the counter was very pleasant, fast and efficient, and knowledgeable. 2-3 day turnaround for 5 shirts and two pairs of dress slacks seems reasonable. $2/shirts on hangers (more for boxes shirts) $5/slacks

Slacks and/or coats dry-cleaned for $4.75 (but quoted $12 for suits) Lovely elderly woman (guess she is Sofia). They do (she does) alterations. Best hours around and slightly lower prices than Symphony Cleaners over by NEU.
