What I experienced during this COVID-19 epidemic

Image
Although there is a lot to write about the coronavirus, I just talk about what I have experienced and thought about during this COVID-19 epidemic.


1. News Sources Do not get news from Chinese Internet. China has always been very strict with information control, and it has become stricter in recent days. The latest speech censorship laws came into effect on March 1.
Several of my friends' WeChat or SNS accounts have been banned.
For a long time, I am almost silent on Chinese Internet.

Fortunately, I have always been freedom to access the Internet.

In mid-December 2019, I heard that patients were infected with unknown pneumonia. Several of my relatives who are doctors have confirmed this. I reminded my friends in Wuhan, the center city of the epidemic, and did not make it public. Because at the same time, eight doctors who published this information were cautioned by the police as rumors. State media also warned people not to talk about it.

Until December 31, 2019, the official ann…

Talking about donations to disaster

Image
On the night of heavy rain in Beijing, I slept well. I haven't followed the news recently because there is no news.

It is said that Beijing is calling on people to donate for the disaster. You see, there is really no news. If North Korea announced that Kim was not the head of state, that would be news.

But speaking of donations, I remember two things a few years ago.


ONE. The 5.12 Wenchuan (a city in Sichuan Province, China) earthquake in 2008 when I was working for an advertising company. The company organized several donations, and I didn't pay a penny. Whenever the donation box is sent to our office, I always shake my head with a smile. I still remember the accountant asked me with a slightly ridicule:

-"Why don't you donate?" -"Is it forced?"
-"It's not forced." -"Then I won't donate."
-"Why?" -"I don't believe my money will be used on the right path."

I like this straightforward.

The Red Scarf

Image
"The Red Scarf is a corner of the national flag, dyeing with the blood of martyrs." On June 1st, 1988, as the first group of honorable young pioneers in the first grade of primary school, the teacher said this to us.

So there was a bloody scene in my mind: There were dye tanks on the ground, and martyrs stood in line. Each martyr walked to the front of the tank, his arm was cut, and blood flowed into the tank. Bandaged when the blood was about to run out, the next martyr was cut and continued to bleed...
Another group of workers has to do the work of cutting the national flag. Each national flag can make three red scarves--see the picture, the upper left corner is not available, because it is not good to cut to that or the people--Finally, the cut flags was put into the dyeing tanks and then dried to make a red scarf.


My feeling at the time was:
It's so tough to be a martyr, you have to be caught and bleed to make a red scarf when you return from the battlefield.A nation…

Donate for JAPAN

No expect domestic fundraising in China, I do it myself.

During the 5.12 Wenchuan earthquake, the state and enterprises launched a large number of fundraising and forcing donations. I didn't donate a penny.
The reason is that the using of these donations is not transparent. I can't believe that these funds will not be corrupted--don't tell me that it's good that even 10% funds reach the disaster area and you can donate, that 's you-- but I chose something more meaningful.

Now 3.11 Japan earthquake, no government or organization has asked me to donate, but I want to make this step.
There is a Chinese proverb that "when you drink water, don't forget the person who digs the well." Many items in my life are made in Japan, and they give me a lot of convenience. Japan has given us so much help, and we should help them within our ability.

I trust Google the most. There is already a donation section on Google's special topic page.
However, when I started…

In Google We Trust

I was busy all day until I found a list of articles in Google Reader during dinner, all about Google's quit from China.
google.cn has redirectd to google.com.hk.



This day should have come long ago. If Google compromises, then we have made the wrong choice.
Now what can we do besides cheering Google? Google is indeed our Google!

Even if Google is blocked, we will, must, able to use Google.
