"ka-ching" Oct 10, 2015


http://www.wordorigins.org/index.php/site/comments/1980_words/
Dave Wilton, Tuesday, June 05, 2012

The Oxford English Dictionary has 162 words with first citations from 1980. In that year, the computer world was all abuzz about RISC, coprocessors, and Usenet; foodies smacked their lips over Buffalo wings; comb-overs weren’t fooling anyone; and the inventors of Rubik’s cube and the Walkman cashed in, ka-ching!

The words of 1980:

401(k), n. A 401(k) plan, named after the relevant section of the U. S. tax code, is a retirement plan that allows an employee to invest pre-tax income in an account where it is not taxed until withdrawn after retirement.

air-guitar, n. The term for an imaginary instrument used to mime along with music hits the stage.

aloe vera, n. From the Linnaean taxonomy of the plant from which it is derived, the name for the emollient used in cosmetics and skin care appears.

auto-completion, n. The computing feature used in word processing and other applications makes its debut.

biotech, n. This clipping of biotechnology, which dates to the 1920s, appears.

Buffalo, n.2 Buffalo chicken wings were first served at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964, but it took a couple of decades for the delicacy to catch on nationwide.

carbo-loading, n. The full carbohydrate loading appears in medical literature as early as 1963, but around 1980 endurance athletes took up the practice and the term, clipping it to just carbo-loading.

cold call, v. The OED records both the verb to cold call and the corresponding noun, meaning “an unsolicited telephonic sales pitch,” from 1980. But the dictionary has cold calling from 1972, so the two base terms are likely somewhat older.

comb-over, n. The name of the men’s hair style that doesn’t fool anyone except the wearer debuts.

coprocessor, n. Beginning in 1980, many computers started coming with a second microprocessor, usually for floating-point mathematical calculations.

Dobsonian, adj. and n. In the 1950s San Francisco-based amateur astronomer John Dobson invented this design for a low-cost telescope that used a Newtonian optical tube assembly and a sturdy, wooden alt-azimuth mount. By 1980 amateur astronomers across the United States were building telescopes based on Dobson’s design.

electronica, n. The new musical style gets a name.

Euro, adj. The adjective, used for just about anything having to do with Europe, gets its start.
… …

ka-ching, n. and int. This echoic term that imitates the sound of cash register is used to imply that money has been made on some transaction. The OED has it from 1980, but the ADS-L email list has antedated ka-ching to at least 1970, and the Harvard Lampoon’s 1969 parody Bored of the Rings uses ching for the same purpose.


Nimby, n. The acronym for not in my back yard starts to be used to describe objections to projects in one’s own neighborhood.

Norplant, n. The brand name for the long-term, subcutaneous method of female contraception appears.

pair-bond, v. The noun from 1940 is verbed. The gerund pair-bonding is found from 1961 and the adjective pair-bonded from 1972.

retronym, n. William Safire used this term in his New York Times language column starting in 1980. Safire claims that it was coined by Frank Mankiewicz of National Public Radio. A retronym is a term created for a long-standing concept because the original term has become ambiguous, often due to technical advances, such as analog clock or broadcast television.

RISC, n. Reduced instruction set computers make their appearance. This type of processor uses a relatively small set of instructions, enabling faster performance.

Rubik’s cube, n. Hungarian designer Erno Rubik invented his puzzle cube in 1974, but it took until 1980 for the worldwide marketing effort to take off.

super-max, n. and adj. The term is something of an oxymoron, but the adjective super-maximum has been around since at least 1917, and applied to the highest security prisons in the United States since at least 1954. By 1980, the term was being clipped to simply super-max.

Usenet, n. The computer communication system got its start at Duke University in 1979 and was named in 1980.

waitron, n. (also waitperson, n.) Waitron combines a genderless form with an implication of waiting tables as a mindless, robotic activity. Waitperson also gets its start in 1980.

Walkman, n. Sony’s portable cassette player hits the market.

“读书已成了我的一种生活方式” Oct 19, 2015

读书人习近平
http://202.197.208.33/cms/news/xinyu/20141021/1034.html
发布于 2014-10-21澎湃新闻网

。。。 习近平在俄罗斯索契接受俄罗斯电视台专访时坦言,“读书已成了我的一种生活方式”,并列举了多项读书的好处,“读书可以让人保持思想活力,让人得到智慧启发,让人滋养浩然之气”。 “比如,我读过很多俄罗斯作家的作品,如克雷洛夫、普希金、果戈里、莱蒙托夫、屠格涅夫、陀思妥耶夫斯基、涅克拉索夫、车尔尼雪夫斯基、托尔斯泰、契诃夫、肖洛霍夫,他们书中许多精彩章节和情节我都记得很清楚。”——这是习近平第一次在公开报道中,系统列出自己阅读的“书单”,引发广泛关注。

第二份“书单”很快开出。3月27日,习近平在巴黎出席中法建交50周年纪念大会并发表了讲话。习近平表示,“我青年时代就对法国文化抱有浓厚兴趣,法国的历史、哲学、文学、艺术深深吸引着我。读法国近现代史特别是法国大革命史的书籍,让我丰富了对人类社会政治演进规律的思考。读孟德斯鸠、伏尔泰、卢梭、狄德罗、圣西门、傅立叶、萨特等人的著作,让我加深了对思想进步对人类社会进步作用的认识。读蒙田、拉封丹、莫里哀、司汤达、巴尔扎克、雨果、大仲马、乔治•桑、福楼拜、小仲马、莫泊桑、罗曼•罗兰等人的著作,让我增加了对人类生活中悲欢离合的感触。”

此外,据澎湃新闻不完全统计,公开报道中习近平明确提及书名或引用过其中内容的著作还有:《钢铁是怎样炼成的》、《史记》、《春秋》、《诗经》、《礼记》、《管子》、《孔子家语通解》、《论语诠解》、《苦难辉煌》、《百年佛缘》、《单向度的人》、《取经》等。

拥有法学博士学位的习近平,在很早的时候就与书结缘。根据公开报道,习近平爱读书至少可推溯到1969年。那年他16岁,在黄土高坡上,开始知青生涯,读书不辍。“爱看书”、“好学”,是他留给陕北梁家河村老乡们的印象之一。他们记得,他“带一箱子书下乡”,在煤油灯下看“砖头一样厚的书”,“有时吃饭也拿着书”。2013年青年节,习近平同各界优秀青年代表座谈时曾回忆,“我到农村插队后,给自己定了一个座右铭,先从修身开始。一物不知,深以为耻,便求知若渴。上山放羊,我揣着书,把羊圈在山坡上,就开始看书。锄地到田头,开始休息一会儿时,我就拿出新华字典记一个字的多种含义,一点一滴积累。”

• If you want to be happy, be. ― Leo Tolstoy

• The strongest of all warriors are these two - Time and Patience. ― Leo Tolstoy

• In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you. ― Leo Tolstoy

• “Everywhere across whatever sorrows of which our life is woven, some radiant joy will gaily flash past.”
― Nikolai Gogol

• “...nothing could be more pleasant than to live in solitude, enjoy the spectacle of nature, and occasionally read some book... ...” ― Nikolai Gogol

• It is better to have dreamed a thousand dreams that never were than never to have dreamed at all.
― Alexander Pushkin

• “He filled a shelf with a small army of books and read and read; but none of it made sense. .. They were all subject to various cramping limitations: those of the past were outdated, and those of the present were obsessed with the past.” ― Alexander Pushkin

• “Time sometimes flies like a bird, sometimes crawls like a snail; but a man is happiest when he does not even notice whether it passes swiftly or slowly.” ― Ivan Turgenev

• “A childish feeling, I admit, but, when we retire from the conventions of society and draw close to nature, we involuntarily become children: each attribute acquired by experience falls away from the soul, which becomes anew such as it was once and will surely be again.” ― Mikhail Lermontov

• “But does it really help if a person doesn't realize what he lacks, or, if he does, he insists that he doesn't need it at all? That's an illusion, a fantasy. Human nature is stifled by reason, circumstances, and pride. It keeps silent and doesn't make itself known to one's consciousness, all the while silently doing its work of undermining life.”
― Nikolai Chernyshevsky

• “My holy of holies is the human body, health, intelligence, talent, inspiration, love, and the most absolute freedom imaginable, freedom from violence and lies, no matter what form the latter two take. Such is the program I would adhere to if I were a major artist.” ― Anton Chekhov

• “A tree is beautiful, but what’s more, it has a right to life; like water, the sun and the stars, it is essential. Life on earth is inconceivable without trees. Forests create climate, climate influences peoples’ character, and so on and so forth. There can be neither civilization nor happiness if forests crash down under the axe, if the climate is harsh and severe, if people are also harsh and severe.... What a terrible future!” ― Anton Chekhov

• “When swept out of its normal channel, life scatters into innumerable streams. It is difficult to foresee which it will take in its treacherous and winding course. Where to-day it flows in shallows, like a rivulet over sandbanks, so shallow that the shoals are visible, to-morrow it will flow richly and fully.”
― Mikhail Sholokhov

廊橋遺夢 Oct 29, 2015



看罷電影麥迪遜之橋/廊橋遺夢後,很想當美國國家地理雜誌攝影記者,拍些廊橋。當然沒有去愛荷華州,只在哥倫布日假期,開車北上,到新罕布夏州,當年紅葉高峰期未到,時為2009年。兩張照片應是同一橋,網上那張是屬大師級。
