LiangKuo碎碎唸!

前兩天跟國中同學在板橋聚會,跑去吃了一間新埔站附近的涮涮鍋"金屋",料多也蠻好吃的,他現在正在優惠+20元就可以肉+半盤。很划算的!再店裡有著兩種味道喝起來都一樣的紅茶,ㄧ個叫做極品紅茶,ㄧ個叫做好喝紅茶。但是我跟我同學不約而同的都選了極品紅茶。沒錯!文字會誘導人的選擇。

之後跑去打保齡球,發現家裡附近的那間高手保齡球館外面看起來像荒廢了,裡面還一堆人在打!當然不少政放寒假的國中國小小朋友。我頂著我ㄧ年多沒運動的身體跟同學廝殺了兩局手馬上酸痛了起來!真的是歲月不饒人啊。(到現在都還會痠痛!打起來特別有感覺,打字XD)

然後當天晚上阿,在我女朋友家吃飯又看到他媽寵小孩的樣子,實在很看不下去。兩個小學六年級的小朋友去補習還要有人帶去坐捷運(兩站..),還要在那邊等他們下課在帶他們回來,實在是很誇張!(已經去補好幾年的地方了說!又不是第一次。)然後很生氣阿,ㄧ直覺得很白痴。我自己就很白痴的忘了要到學校MEETING...禮拜五還寄信問老師有沒事情要知道的!沒有得到回信= ='' 可能被封鎖。呵呵

最近都ㄧ直在忙公司的案子,讓我不禁懷疑我推甄選擇自己學校不就是為了要輕鬆一點了嗎?怎麼我又自己找事情壓榨自己了啊!我真的是很自虐,每天睡一點點然後超級累的每個地方趕來趕去的。聽我女朋友說我這樣說不定也會年紀輕輕得癌症,原本我是很勇,覺得不可能!但是聽他講大腸癌的事情之後,這兩天又一直拉肚子,害我開始有點點怕怕!我應該不會得吧。ㄧ定只是天氣冷的緣故。

保佑我吉人天相吧,我想我這陣子忙完就真的要休息了。(7月忙完TIC我就要休息了!ㄧ定!)

A Teacher's Lesson 老師的一堂課

A Teacher's Lesson 老師的一堂課



老師轉寄來的一封信,我之前也看了類似的文章但是覺得這篇比較真實,順便也讓大家練練英文吧。(或許真的要練的是我!呵呵)

總之又是個感人的故事+教育的心得!小朋友真的要用愛的教育加上鼓勵而不是用溺愛或是鞭打可以碩造的。前陣子也有一篇媽媽越懶,小孩越好的文章,類型比較不一樣。不過我也希望我能夠對我的小孩加以如此的管教愛護。

Many years ago, Mrs. Thompson stood in front of her 5th grade class and told the children a lie that she loved them all the same. But that was impossible, because there in the front row, a little boy named Teddy Stoddard was so messy and inattentive in class that Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X's and then putting a big "F" at the top of his papers.

許多年前,湯普遜老師對著她五年級的學生們撒了一個謊:她說她會平等地愛每個孩子!但這是不可能的,因為前排就坐著泰迪 史塔特--一個邋遢、上課不專心的小男孩,事實上,湯普遜老師很喜歡用粗紅筆在泰迪的考卷上畫大大的叉,然後在最上排寫個不及格!

One day, as Mrs. Thompson was reviewing each child's past records, she was surprised by comments of Teddy's former teachers:

某一天,湯普遜老師檢視每個學生以前的學習紀錄表,她意外地發現泰迪之前的老師給的評語十分驚人:

"Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. He does his work neatly and has good manners...he is a joy to be around," wrote Teddy's first grade teacher.
一年級老師寫道:「泰迪是個聰明的孩子,永遠面帶笑容,他的作業很整潔、很有禮貌,他讓周遭的人很快樂!」

His second grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is an excellent student, well liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle."

二年級老師說:「泰迪很優秀,很受同學歡迎,但他的母親罹患了絕症,他很擔心,家裡生活一定不好過!」


His third grade teacher wrote, "His mother's death has been hard on him. He tries to do his best but his father doesn't show much interest and his home life will soon affect him if some steps aren't taken."


三年級老師:「母親過世泰迪一定不好過,他很努力表現但父親總不在意,若再沒有改善,他的家庭生活將嚴重打擊泰迪。」

Teddy's fourth grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is withdrawn and doesn't show much interest in school. He
doesn't have many friends and sometimes sleeps in class."

四年級老師:「泰迪開始退縮,對課業提不起興趣,沒有什麼朋友,有時會在課堂上睡覺。」


By now, Mrs. Thompson realized the problem and she was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when her students brought her Christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright paper, except for Teddy's. His present which was clumsily wrapped in the heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag.

現在,湯普遜老師才了解泰迪的困難,而深感羞愧,而當她收到泰迪送的聖誕禮物—別人的禮物用緞帶及包裝紙裝飾的漂漂亮亮,泰迪送的禮物卻是用雜貨店的牛皮紙袋捆起來─湯普遜老師更覺得難過,


Mrs. Thompson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents. Some of the children started to laugh when she found a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing, and a bottle that was one quarter full of perfume. But she stifled the children's laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on, and dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist.

湯普遜老師忍著心酸,當著全班的面拆開泰迪的禮物,有的孩子開始嘲笑泰迪送的聖誕禮物:一條假鑽手環,上面還缺了幾顆寶石,另外是一罐只剩四分之一的香水。但是湯普遜老師不但驚呼漂亮,還帶上手環,並噴了一些香水在手腕上,其他小朋友全都愣住了。


Teddy Stoddard stayed after school that day just long enough to say, "Mrs. Thompson, today you smelled just like my Mom used to." After the children left she cried for at least an hour. On that very day, she quit teaching reading, and writing, and arithmetic. Instead, she began to teach children.

放學後泰迪史塔特留下來對湯普遜老師說:「老師,妳今天聞起來好像我媽咪喔!」一等泰迪回家,湯普遜老師整整哭了一個小時,就在那一天,湯普遜老師不再教「書」:不教閱讀、不教寫作、不教數學,相反地,她開始「教育孩童」!


Mrs. Thompson paid particular attention to Teddy. As she worked with him, his mind seemed to come alive. The more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. By the end of the year, Teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class and, despite her lie that she would love all the children the same, Teddy became one her "teacher's pets."


湯普遜老師開始特別關注泰迪,而泰迪的心似乎重新活了過來,湯普遜老師越鼓勵泰迪,泰迪的反應越快,到了學年尾聲,泰迪已經成為班上最聰明的孩子之一。雖然湯普遜老師說過她會平等地愛每一個孩子,但泰迪卻是她最喜歡的學生。


A year later, she found a note under her door, from Teddy, telling her that she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life. Six years went by before she got another note from Teddy. He then wrote that he had finished high school, third in his class, and she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life.

一年後,湯普遜老師在門邊發現一張紙條,是泰迪寫來的,上面說湯普遜老師是他一生遇到最棒的老師!六年過去了,湯普遜老師又發現另一張泰迪寫的紙條,泰迪已經高中畢業,成績全班第三名,而湯普遜老師仍是他一生遇到最棒的老師!


Four years after that, she got another letter, saying that while things had been tough at times, he'd stayed in school, had stuck with it, and would soon graduate from college with the highest of honors. He assured Mrs. Thompson that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had in his whole life.

四年後,湯普遜老師又收到一封信,泰迪說有時候學校生活並不順利,但他仍堅持下去,而不久的將來他將以最高榮譽畢業!他再一次告訴湯普遜老師,她仍是他這一輩子遇到最棒的老師!

Then four more years passed and yet another letter came. This time he explained that after he got his bachelor's degree, he decided to go a little further. The letter explained that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had. But now his name was a little longer -- the letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, M.D.

四年過去,又來了一封信。信裡面告訴湯普遜老師,泰迪大學畢業後決定繼續攻讀更高學位,他也不忘再說一次,湯普遜老師還是他這一生遇到最棒的老師,而這封信的結尾多了幾個字:「泰迪史塔特醫師。」

The story doesn't end there. You see, there was yet another letter that spring. Teddy said he'd met this girl and was going to be married. He explained that his father had died a couple of years ago and he was wondering if Mrs. Thompson might agree to sit in the place at the wedding that was usually reserved for the mother of the groom. Of course, Mrs. Thompson did. And guess what? She wore that bracelet, the one with several rhinestones missing. And she made sure she was wearing the perfume that Teddy remembered his mother wearing on their last Christmas together.

故事還沒結束呢!你瞧!該年春天又來了一封信,泰迪說他遇到生命中的女孩,馬上要結婚了,泰迪解釋說他的父親幾年前過世了,他希望湯普遜老師可以參加他的婚禮並坐上屬於新郎「母親」的位置,湯普遜老師完成了泰迪的心願。但你知道嗎?湯普遜老師竟然戴著當年泰迪送的假鑽手環,還噴了同一瓶香水,是泰迪母親過世前的最後一個聖誕節用過的香水。

They hugged each, and Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson's ear, "Thank you Mrs. Thompson for believing in me. Thank you so much for making me feel important and showing me that I could make a difference."

他們互相擁抱,史塔特博士悄悄在耳邊告訴湯普遜老師:「湯普遜老師,謝謝妳相信我,謝謝妳讓我覺得自己很重要,讓我相信我有能力去改變(make
a difference)!」

Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes, whispered back.She said, "Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn't know how to teach until I met you."

湯普遜老師熱淚滿盈,告訴泰迪:「泰迪,你錯了!是你教導我、讓我相信我有能力去改變,一直到遇見你,我才知道該怎麼教書!」

維基再創一個與Google比較的WikiMapia

WikiMapia有什麼特色呢?

可以任意的加入各地地標!
搜尋任何城市、標籤以及設定自己喜歡的頁面

當然也非常友善的提供了繁體中文和類似google map的使用方式。或許就是跟google合作或Urmap吧

她這個城市地圖如果發展幾年過後我想Urmap的在地優勢或許還會被打敗!以致於FON去找別人合作。

不過以我的內線消息,FON跟Urmap合作應該是人和造成的。兩邊的推動人互有關係。嘿嘿,中國人咩。內舉不避親!

使用畫面:點選放大看可以看到我家附近的萬板橋!我還很想要把我家標示一下。


之前講的維基百科創辦人威爾斯相信:人腦勝過電腦,裡面充滿著對自己產品的自信。我想維基會不斷的利用分享的優勢繼續壯大!(這當然是好的啊!賺!)

連日本都標示一大堆了! 大家也去把自己喜歡的路標設定上去吧!

丞琳要離開我猜了!這樣我以後還要看什麼呢?

剛出道的丞琳,青澀的模樣!

開始主持的丞琳!

跟阿雅一起出外景,搞笑的丞琳!

自己出外景,造型多變的丞琳!

捕捉楊丞琳的倩影,

這兩張吃東西的丞琳很可愛!

楊丞琳的經典名句,並造成全台裝可愛旋風!當然裝可愛也要看是誰裝才可愛阿。

愛哭的丞琳!之後在我猜就看不到楊丞琳了。在我猜主持四年的她也帶給我們不少歡笑與回憶,想當初大一的時候還有去錄我猜呢!

我猜的女台柱相繼出走,楊千霈之後會跟誰搭檔呢?我想是葦如吧。看之前丞琳豐富的外景經驗,再回到現在葦如也主持了不少我猜的外景!

如果時間能配合她應該是最佳人選吧!不過她沒出現在我猜的主持當中,是上面壓力還是真的沒有機會在棚內錄影嗎?這些應該是演藝圈的黑暗。知道八卦的回一下喔!
