日期:2007/01/28 20:38

藝人許瑋倫昨日在國道上發生嚴重,情況一直沒有改善,今日下午5點09分,心跳停止,經過醫生2個小時搶救後,於晚間7點37分宣告不治。

醫生表示,因為許瑋倫的腦水腫的部份,一直沒有,有效的改善,下午5點09分,多突然休克,經過醫師全力搶救,在晚間7點37分搶救無效,目前家屬已經在處理後事部分,將在晚間會將許瑋倫遺體送回台北。

Though I do not know her much before the accident, I was shocked deeply.

A young life is gone, suddenly.
So young, so close to my age.
We really have to be careful, not only driving,
but walking, hiking, swimming, eating, or even sleeping.
Keep ourselves safe, keep our family and friends away from
concerns and tears.

The transience of life is not so evident until now.

Terrible Hiccups

I’ve had heavy hiccups this night for about one hour.
So uncomfortable!

Hoping that food can help, I went but something to eat.
I ate, ate, and then choked myself by the green tea.
But amazingly, after coughing for a while, the hiccups were checked!

看芬蘭的經驗
昨天買了本書,芬蘭驚艷,
還沒看完[按:昨天晚上已看完],到目前就感受很深了。
說芬蘭語的人口很少,
不過,他們很用心在保存芬蘭語,
不會想要以瑞典語為尊。

我不能失志,
 不能氣餒。

眼痠,手痠,脖子痠

考完期末考了,
每一科東西都很多,
有種快虛脫的感覺,
兩個禮拜之後還要考預官。

今天晚上休息一下吧,
明天再說。


對了,
看了統計和Stata的成績,
還不錯~ 😀 😀 😀


存取外,還要消化

明天剩下期末考最後兩科,
好多喔,有念不完的危機。

Pride and Prejudice, 16頁英文字根,SparkNotes的講義,
心理學講義,心理學課本,N個PDF圖檔…

一定要熬夜了,衝阿!

更可怕的是,
明天考完普心,可以去看統計和Stata的成績…
助教動作真快,
雖然怕,但還是想看。


Treasure Island of Austronesian Languages

Taiwan is a hell for languages other than Chinese, English,
 and other foreign languages.
Taiwan is a treasure island when it comes to the origin of
 Austronesian languages.

Austronesian languages contain about 1200 languages,
 belonging to 10 subgroups.
Austronesian languages spoken outside Taiwan are of
 one subgroup, and the other nine subgroups can only be found
 in Taiwan!

It might be my interested subject of further research.

For more detailed info, please see
Linguistics: Taiwan’s gift to the world
台灣給世界的贈禮

Blust’s analysis yields an astonishing pattern. Those 1,200 Austronesian languages fall into ten subgroups, of which nine (containing only 26 languages) are spoken only by the non-Chinese aborigines of the island of Taiwan. The tenth subgroup encompasses all Austronesian languages outside Taiwan, from Madagascar to east Polynesia — all 1,174 of them. It is as if the Indo-European language family consisted of 1,174 closely related Slavic languages, spoken from Britain to Sri Lanka, with all nine other Indo-European language groups — Germanic, Celtic, Hittite, Italic and the rest of them — being confined to Ireland. Previous studies had recognized several distinctive Austronesian language groups on Taiwan, but it had not been appreciated that the number was so high.


Save Poverty

豬小草Bono:這是關乎公義的事
Bono: Keynote Address at the 54th National Prayer Breakfast

Bono has done his best to save poverty,
to donate his mind and money,
to advocate the responsibility of Christians,
and give speeches about the justice to help and the injustice to declare wars.

Religions couldn’t justify wars.
Tolerance and forgiveness are needed to stop both wars and poverty.
