Re: 10/10 (Sat)Proud of Taiwan(Host:John)

Kudos to the host for preparing such an interesting set of statistics for warm-up and high-quality questions for the meeting discussion! Some thoughts on the arguments posted in the LINE group (about KMT’s unexpected requests): 1) Given the fact that 60% of Taiwanese believe that U.S will send the ...

Re: 10/10 (Sat)Proud of Taiwan(Host:John)

I think talking about politics is less sensitive than talking about religion or sex, so it should be fine. 3. If "pamper to bad people" is the necessary evil for Switzerland during the world war II, what do you think is the necessary evil in the cross strait relationship for the sake of Taiwan? I t...

10/10 (Sat)Proud of Taiwan(Host:John)

Dear YOYO members: Since next Sunday is double tenth day— the national holiday I thought I should pick up a topic which fits this special day to Taiwanese. Please take a look at the Youtube clip below and let's bounce ideas off of each other in the discussion. Maybe we can get some inspiration for t...

Re: 9/19(Sat.) What is Cultural Appropriation? (Host: Michael)

This term reminds me of the news in circulation on the internet many years ago which stated that Korean claim that Confucius is Korean. My peers and me were laughing, jeering at this news and made fun of it quite often. Before long, another statement also came up that Korean invented everything or K...

Re: 6/6(Sat.) Minimalism (Host: Kooper)

Another idea that I find quite fascinating is dadaism which was an art movement initially but I suppose to some degree it could be practiced as a lifestyle. Just let everything run its course and the chaos is the state they are certain to reach one day. There is no restriction, boundary between ever...

Re: 5/23 (Sat) The Power of Habit / The Idiom Blast! (Host: Kat)

The idiom section in today's meeting is really helpful in learning idioms :D :D :D You just shed new light on how to learn it in a more fun and effective way. There was a time when I tried to figure out the mechanism by which our brains learn a new word, idiom, and retain it. I think there is also a...

Re: 5/25(Sat.) The Future of Marriage (Host: Tom)

it might be a bit reductive to say but, to answer your question, who would never want to have a perfect life partner? if i had the chance, i would probably like to have one too. then again, the thing is, the thing is why i have to marry them? or without wanting to sound harsh in any way, why it has...

Re: 5/25(Sat.) The Future of Marriage (Host: Tom)

marrying robots and holograms? right, marriage this term has widely been abused recently. then again, why is marriage the term so important to many people? i would say the term merely denotes a regulation under which the life of a certified relationship, most of time it involves only two parties, w...

Re: 5/25(Sat.) The Future of Marriage (Host: Tom)

There's one episode called "Be Right Back" in black mirror series which touched on this topic as well. Not only that, it even took one step further by introducing the concept of clone combined with big data analysis and machine learning. As it turned out in that episode, we humans might one day own ...

Re: 5/7 (Tue.) Plogga (Host: Felicia)

I am not really in support of the idea that the state of a person’s room reflects his personality and that it has anything to do with being organized or muddled but I agree that it’s closely related to a person’s life in the way that he might not be aware of. To begin with, how your personal items a...

Re: Ask Kat: what's the equivalent of "旁門左道" in English?

Hi Kat Thanks a lot! It's really helpful. I came across those phrases and expression several times when watching American TV series but I didn't know what it meant at that time. I guess it's mainly because it's too cultural. Right now they are put together and laid out in the same scenario and the m...

Ask Kat: what's the equivalent of "旁門左道" in English?

Hi, Kat Recently, I was thinking if there is an expression in English which describes the unorthodox approach taken to deal with a problem, which people usually associate with pseudoscience. For example, taking a bedridden family member(critically ill) to a temple and seeking for help from shaman ra...

Re: 1/22(Tue.) Red Bean Soup (Host:Felicia)

After reading through this story for the first time, I was trying to figure out the element embedded that tugged at my heartstring by peeling off layers of any aspects of this story, which is simple, plain and short without too many characters involved. There’re two main elements which I found quite...
