    It’s the first time I post my article on the internet. I hope someone can help me to correct . I know my English is very poor , but I take the first step to improve my English at least, right?

          一則心情小故事

     I picked up a call last night, someone who wanted me to help her to make a presentation about learning condition of two kids. I can refuse indeed, but I promise eventually. From that time, my emotional felt aggrieved and felt more pressure, because I knew I have to face some big pots (including educational officials and professional..) to make a report. I feel nervous and uneasy.
    Then my son had stomachache and I took him to see a doctor. When I was in the waiting room. I heard the doctor told his patient “don’t bother and tortour yourself just because of someone’s matter , it’s a inadvisable.” I was awakening suddenly, and thought it just told me as well, wasn’t it?
    Sometimes we bother ourselves just because of other’s problem even just only a word, that even destroy our health. It’s not worthy at all, right?



  有時我們會因別人的事情或言論而令自己陷入壓力、苦惱、失眠甚而殘害健康而不自知,其實是愚昧不智的,醫生之言對我猶如醍醐灌頂一生受益.這是昨日所發生的一則小小故事與大家分享。

One possibility is exercise induced high blood pressure. You may seem fit, but it’s possible that your arteries can’t handle the strain of exercise, so your blood pressure rises. This can be genetic, and it usually doesn’t have any other symptoms. Many in the medical community think high blood pressure during exercise is itself a risk factor for heart disease and may predate the onset of typical hypertension. I suggest you see a cardiologist about your symptoms.

Groups slam CLA for treatment of foreign workers
By Cody Yiu
STAFF REPORTER
Thursday, Jan 27, 2005,Page 3
Labor rights groups yesterday urged the Council of Labor Affairs (CLA) to make the transfer of foreign migrant workers from one employer to another a more transparent process.
On Jan. 20, 112 Filipina female workers were put up for rehire at Sanchung employment center, which is run by the CLA's Bureau of Employment and Vocational Training, where they were each represented by a number and selected by new potential employers through a lottery.
These 112 women, who formerly worked on an assembly line at a high-tech IC factory, were chosen by their new employers through a lottery, and did not even know where they were going till they ended up in their new respective factories, said Ku Yu-ling (顧玉玲), secretary-general of the Taiwan International Workers' Association (TIWA).
The IC company, which was called Fastfame, went bust at the end of last year. It's owners absconded and left several months of employees' salaries unpaid.
The process and results of the lottery re-hiring system lead to some problems. Those foreign migrant workers might end up to some worse working conditions without any signs they could see before head
In a press conference, TIWA showed a video clip of the lottery re-hiring system.
In the clip, the workers looked both anxious and excited about their new jobs.
The new factories, where these women were reassigned, often turned out to be vastly different from their previous employment, and most involved heavy machinery and intensive manual labor was demanded.
I was sent to an iron works, and that place was no place for a woman to be. There were large vessels everywhere, and the work was very dangerous, said Meriam Young, one of 112 female workers who had been re-assigned.
The dormitory where Young and three other workers were sent was reeking with stench, and they were confined to the factory premises alone after work hours, she said.
Some employers were shocked to see female workers showing up at the door.
Some employers would realize that they had picked workers of the wrong gender. Together with the manpower agencies, they would repatriate the unwanted workers right away, Ku said.
Once the workers had been repatriated, the employer was free to hire new migrant workers to fill their foreign worker quotas.
This month, TIWA succeeded in several rescue operations of migrant workers who were about to be deported, as well as some who had ended up in squalid living conditions.
The bureau didn't seem to be able to supervise the employment transfer process, which gave manpower agencies the opportunity to engage in unethical activities, said Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Wang Tuoh (王拓).
The association urged the CLA to restrict the worker's new job to the same industry as the worker's previous job.
In response, the CLA stated that employment transfer system was set up in a way to allow for re-employment flexibility.
The transfer system doesn't seem to have considered workers' rights, because the way it was designed, it was intended that foreign migrant workers who were out of a job might be able to find employment elsewhere -- and not be restricted by limitation of a particular type of industry, said Tsai Meng-liang (蔡孟良), a section chief at the council's department of foreign labor affairs.
This

My opinions:
The transfer system doesn’t seem to have considered workers’ rights because the way it was designed. Foreign migrant workers may send or transfer to inappropriate working position. Lack of protection to ensure the safety of workers’ working condition and payment is the main problem this report mentioned.
Without well supervise-system, manpower agencies could keep ignoring the rights of those foreign workers and leave the problem hanging there with no better solution.

Evolution in the Classroom

The controversy that won't go away

Even though it is accepted as a fact by almost every scientist in the world, the theory of evolution is still a matter of controversy in the US. Almost every year, usually in the South or Midwest, there are legal fights about the teaching of evolution in public schools. Wisconsin and Georgia are the latest battlegrounds.

Some religious activists argue that evolution is a theory, not a fact. They say that creationism, or “intelligent design”-which argues that God created everything-is an alternative “scientific” theory that should be taught along with evolution.

A school district in Wisconsin recently decided to support this position. In response to that decision, hundreds of academics wrote protest letters. “This is not a science issue,” said Michael Zimmerman, a dean at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. “It's an education issue.” The fight is not over, and it remains to be seen what the school district will do.

Meanwhile, several parents in Georgia were upset by stickers placed in biology textbooks that warned that “evolution is a theory, not a fact.” They filed a lawsuit against the local school district, arguing that that the district had religious reasons for putting the stickers on the books. “I'm a strong advocate for the separation of church and state,” said Jeffrey Selman, one of the parents.

My opinion:
First of all, I need to clarify that I don’t advocate in any religion. This news makes me think about the truly function of all religion do for people. People need support from the faith they believe and rely on it. The religion people rely on should help them concur difficulties they encounter. No matter how true “your God” is, it’s better to let people have their choices to take, yet just give people that “the only choice.”
Scientist collecting evidence to present the theory base on the fact could be something we can take to believe. It’s true that some theories could not perfectly proven the reality; however, it’s still a better way to get closer to what’s really happened by tracing theories we have in hands.
By giving the name of education to promote religious function could be the worse way to deal with the argument in this case.

It was the best of time, it was the worst of time. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity. It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness. It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. We had everything before us, we had nothing before us. We were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going directly to the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

There were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a plain face, on the throne of England; there were a king with a large jaw and a queen with a fair face, on the throne of France. In both countries it was clearer than crystal to the lords of the State preserves of loaves and fishes, things in general were settled for ever.

This morning when I read news on Chinatimes.com.tw, there are allot news regarding to 英檢. Do you know why so many people (approx. 120,000 people) took 英檢? What has happened to Taiwanese people, have them gone mad? What's up with this 英檢 maniac? Well, I think I have the answers for all these questions.

Taiwan entered WTO few years back and from that point on, Taiwanese people was no longer just competing among themselves and from that point on, Taiwan has entered the competition with countries all around world. Let’s not go too far around the world, just ask yourself this one question: Can you compete not just with your classmates, your colleagues, but people from mainland China who is at your age? Can you win? The rule of “survival of fittest” has just sounded whole lot bitter. So, what does WTO has anything to do with 英檢?

As matter of fact, it has absolutely everything to do with英檢! Let’s me explain to you why: Every business man knows, if you have a business that provides goods/services, you need to sell your goods/service, to make transactions, and ultimately to make money. Can you sell something if you can’t not communicate or negotiate deals effectively? No! You can’t run a successful business if you can’t communicate effectively and guess what, US is the world’s largest consumer, US consumes 80% of world’s resource and US is an English speaking country. If you can’t communicate with this Consumer (U.S.) effectively, you will lose your business to someone else who can!

Now you may be asking: what I care, I don’t do business with anyone in US. That, my friends, is the attitude will make you lose your job at your middle age and you will be sorry because of this attitude! Mark my words! Look at the big picture: who are you working for and who is your company working for? The food chain is linked and economies are related. Any idea why when U.S. goes into depression, the rest of world follows? If you don’t know why, let me know, I will BLOG an article to explain it to you. I really hope you know why.

Taiwan is a very small country with not much of nature resource compare to China, we not only need to work hard but we also need to work smart. One of the biggest resources of China is their labor power, if we can't out work them, we need to out smart them. I have went to China and I been Shanghai, and trust me, they are catching up with us. English is one way to out smart them. High English literacy will transform Taiwan into some sort of service hub or the switch between China and western country and only with high English literacy will we be able to better compete. So, my friends, it’s time to start learning English!

Taiwan passing... Taiwan nothing...
