Share Three-year might make another story
2019-12-7 12:05
Many years ago I learned one truth from an experienced farmer that goes as following: The pork price runs up and down like peak-valley in terms each period usually lasts three years. When the pig market was in peak state, the wise man decided to sell all animals and then have a good rest; when most farmers lost money on breeding, he began to restart the business at low cost for the young pigs from the market. In this way he could earn more money than others. Just now the CCTV new program told ...

Share How do you think of hand
2019-9-26 20:54
What is ‘for-picking-up hand’ 提手旁 in the end? We write 手 for ‘hand’. Why? Does it shape like the last part of your arm? You may first draw the top stroke as the middle finger and use the vertical line as the main back-bone of the hand(or arm?), then add the bottom two horizon lines to symbol the remaining four fingers. It is fun if you gesture out the shape of 手 with your own hand by yourself! Here I can sense that the ‘hook’ of 手 showing off too much ...

Share The urgent task for Chinese senior intellectuals
2019-8-2 20:30
"Why is China backward on education? We are poor on both hardware and software!" Said a ninety-year-old rural teacher who is an English expert on the CCTV. He has devoted half of his life on countryside schooling. His words drive me think a lot about the bottom reasons which have troubled our nation terribly for a long time! I believe that we have lost on expressing method in the culture circle when compared with foreign counterparts!Our textbooks are not as wonderful as for ...

Share What is ‘天地’
2019-8-2 17:07
The new language textbook offers pupils an interesting article: What is 天地? You may think in this way: 天 is composed by two part 一(yi)and 大(da). ‘一’ means ‘one’ or ‘first’; 大 is ‘big’ or ‘large’. Ancient Chinese thought the ‘heaven’ was the (first) biggest thing in the world. That is why 天 means ‘sky’, ‘heaven’, ‘universe’. 地(di): The first part is a simple form of 土(earth); 也 is a special word that often appeared at the end of a sentenc ...

2019-7-20 13:11
In ancient China people had used copper coins for some period but which were uneasy for carry on a business-trip. Each round copper coin had a tiny square hole through which you could pass one thread. The top of 贯(guan) looks like one coin plus a thread. The bottom of word is 贝 which means ‘seashell’:It is said the shells were the earlist ‘banknotes’ in the world. So in Chinese 贝 mostly refers to ‘treasure’. You can easily carry one thousand of coins with a thin rope for shoppi ...

Share Does 辰 look like dinosaur?
2019-7-19 08:31
In Chinese the character 辰(chen)has closed relationship with ‘dragon’ or ‘dinosaur’. Why? The top part of the word looks a horizon 山 which means ‘mountain’. We always think dinosaur was the biggest animal in the world that going like huge mountain; The remaining part of 辰 is similar to that of 衣(yi):The latter seems as a clothing model on the stage who has wide shoulder with legs and arms stretching out! (The top dot is the head. 衣 means ‘clothing’.) So 辰 looks as an moun ...

Share Air-conditioner is trouble-maker
2019-7-7 08:07
Mr. Li is a worker in our school whose main task is to safeguard the office-building. It took me a long time to persuade him not to use air-conditioner too much specially when he is sleeping! I believe that the modern electric device maybe the bottom reason why he got the illness of facial distortion! In hot Summer the air conditioner directly blows ‘cool’ gas to the bed even in night! The coldness from the machine had got into the inside of his body when he was in wonder dream that made the ...

Share Trump is an extremist
2019-5-28 10:23
According to Confucian philosophy human should be moderate when considering problems in life and then adapting workable solution for settlement! But as we see on the world politician stage Mr. Trump often acts in a strange way who surprises the public with extreme measures from the white house! For an example, normally businessmen can make about 20% to 30% profit through hard production and few of them could bear 25% tariff by the U.S. government! Former Japanese Prime Minister ...

Share What is 四方?
2019-5-27 16:05
What is '四方' in the end? Ancient Chinese thought the ground shaped like a huge square with four right angles in which center was the Middle Kingdom. 四 means 'four' and 方 refers to ‘direction’. So 四方 should represent ‘the whole society even world’! We have noticed that:Deeply influenced by the traditional national cultural President Xi is a good example to explain the famous saying '好男儿志在四方!" who believes China can not be well developed if without the cooperatio ...

    Thanks to Mr. Ashikujama! Recently one of my relatives was sent to the hospital who was troubled by heart-attack. The doctor told me the bad living habit including smoking was the main cause of (for) the disease! It is too late for the patient to regret!
