Re: Picking Your Brains II: Ways to Express Price Variation

An Asian guy walks into the New York City currency exchange with 2000 yen and walks out with $72. Next week he walks in with 2000 yen and gets $66. He asks the lady why he gets less money this week than last week. The lady says "Fluctuations". The Asian guy storms out, and just before slamming the d...

Re: Picking Your Brains: Ways to Express A Causal Relationship

Dear Wayne C., You might have posted a wrong link by accident. I am talking about "Causal Relationship", not "Casual Relationship." :ssmile: Now I see what you are saying, I mis-read the topic. I did not see the causality in the examples that you gave. Most of them looks more like "conducive relati...

Re: Picking Your Brains: Ways to Express A Causal Relationship

One thing leads to another http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzymBKGV8rw Hi Wayne C., It's amazing that you can always feedback with a relevant song. I forgot to mention that "one thing leads to another" is usually used to denote a chain of unintented or unforseeable events. Also what you mean by "cas...

Re: 10/31(Sat.) Does school kill creativity? (Host:Stephen Chiu)

The establishment by definition will try to preserve the status quo. It is not easy to be progressive and play-it-safe at the same time. Most of the "oppressed" seemed to take it in stride, some may find ways to justify, forgive or even appreciate the oppression, but some will not be so generous. ht...

Re: 10/31(Sat.) Does school kill creativity? (Host:Stephen Chiu)

Even if the school didn't kill it, it is often the parents that put the final nails in the coffin. But all is not lost. There are plenty of time to remedy the situation. Creativity isn't that easy to kill. That doesn't mean it is easy to provide a nurturing environment. Governments all over the worl...

I don’t want to admit that writing the former two short paragraphs took me several hours. I am sure I don’t have much talent in language. :oops: That makes two of us. :lol: I would say that writing in English is the most demanding job I have been doing recently. It's kind of weird to find that the ...

Re: 10/31(Sat.) Does school kill creativity? (Host:Stephen Chiu)

When the child is still young the common practice is to encourage all kinds of creativity. Let kids be kids. Soon or later they will have to judge for themselves. Too many Taiwanese parents see the education as nothing more than just a career preparation path. That mindset is just "too pragmatic" fo...

Re: 10/31(Sat.) Does school kill creativity? (Host:Stephen Chiu)

It all comes down to how broad or narrow one wish to define "academic success" or success in general. In an ideal world, abundance of alternative paths will lead to success that makes everybody happy. But in reality, venturing into uncharted territory isn't always fun or rewarding. And there are rea...

Re: 台灣多益平均成績 遠輸中國大陸103分

Demographically, TOEIC score difference can only mean a few things. 1. There are more elites in China taking the exam. or those whom took the exam are more likely to be elites. 2. There are more (younger) novices in Taiwan taking the exam or can afford it which may not be a bad thing in the long run...

What about"誰能更準確的出牌; 誰就能贏得這階段的勝利"? Wouldn't you like to meet the "genius" that came up with this statement? This kind of wording has the potential to be 詐騙集團's training manual or 連動債 promotional material. Why? Because it is a false statement that sounded so wonderful. However "這階段的勝利" is really noth...

Re: 台灣多益平均成績 遠輸中國大陸103分

From a socio-economic standpoint , the TOEIC score is determined by incentive. That means that one has to strongly believe that TOEIC score will make a difference. There is no time to be wishy-washy. Some mainlanders do seemed to show certain tendencies for being "shamelessly persistence" in whateve...

Re: 請問翻譯

What about "在有限的牌桌上; 發展無限的可能"? I don't think the dimensional limitation of the table itself is a significant issue here. Therefore, "牌桌" must be some kind of metaphor for the dynamics of gambling mechanism. So, the above might be translated as such: "The infinite variability of the outcome suppresse...
