曼彻斯特 Mar 9, 2015

曼彻斯特位于英格兰中部,是英国第二大城市,仅次首都伦敦。坐火车从伦敦出发只需两小时就到达。非常方便。另外,从欧美以及东南亚各国都有飞机直航而无须停伦敦。

在工业革命期间,曼彻斯特是英国一个主要工业城,以生产纺纱出名。当时纺织厂遍布曼彻斯特。全世界第一条客运铁路连接了曼彻斯特和邻近的利物浦市。今天,曼彻斯特市中心古典與现代化建筑物交错林立 (见下图一和二),但离市中心不远的地区却依然可看到许多十八及十九世纪的纺织厂。高耸的烟筒及朱红色的砖块特别容易辨认,吸引著你的脚步去探索 ”古迹“。 (见图四)。

由于生产纺纱需要大量水源,因此市内运河纵横交错;在其中古雅的街道漫步,宛如身处运河之国荷兰 (见图六)。

除了工业革命的历史遗迹,英国著名的卫报 Guardian 其前身即为 Manchester Guardian。曼彻斯特居民也以其祖先以和平方式争取普选,促进改革议会所引发的彼得卢屠杀或彼得卢之役 Peterloo (1819 年)而自豪。 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peterloo_Massacre
我慕名参观了当地的人民历史博物馆(People's History Museum) http://www.phm.org.uk/about-us/history/ 。里面陈述的悲壮事迹,图文并茂。令人感到好像跑进了时光隧道,看到二百年前用马队驱散践踏争取自由平等的人民;今天则有警棍、催泪弹和胡椒喷雾。

人类丑行不断的重复,时间恍如静止不动了。

政府用马队驱散践踏争取自由平等的人民,那不但是丑行而且还是暴行,但对某些扰乱社会秩序的暴徒使用警棍、催泪弹和胡椒喷雾,则属于 reasonable use of force。

Miscommunication Mar 14, 2015

QHE,

Thanks for the cartoons. I seriously doubt that "capricious" is the meaning that the Chinese official intended while saying “大家都很任性”. By using a term such as "任性" in its newly-acquired sense, IMO he is actually doing himself and those in charge a disservice. Between his potential misuse of the term and the interpreter's misinterpretation, they are sending the wrong message to the outside world, i.e., the English(only)-speaking public - to those who actually care, that is.

3.14159265358979323846… Mar 14, 2015


The United States House of Representatives declared March 14 (3.14) to be National Pi Day in 2009. They passed resolution HR 224 to support the designation of a Pi Day and its celebration around the world; to remind the public of the importance of strong STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education as a vehicle to inspire ongoing innovation in the upcoming generation.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/111th-congress/house-resolution/224/all-info




Life on a lifeboat isn’t much of a life. It is like an end game in chess, a game with few pieces. The elements couldn’t be more simple, nor the stakes higher. Physically it is extraordinarily arduous, and morally it is killing… You get your happiness where you can. You reach a point where you’re at the bottom of hell, yet you have your arms crossed and a smile on your face, and you feel you’re the luckiest person on earth. Why? Because at your feet you have a tiny dead fish. - Life of Pi





“If you stumble at mere believability, what are you living for? Isn’t love hard to believe?... Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?”

“We’re just being reasonable.”

“So am I! I applied my reason at every moment… Nothing beats reason for keeping tigers away. But be excessively reasonable and you risk throwing out the universe with the bathwater.” - Life of Pi

Countdown to pi: 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m. Mar 14, 2015



Mathematical minds around the region will rejoice when the clock strikes 9:26:53 a.m. on Saturday. The moment marks a once-per-century occurrence, as the date (3/14) and time line up to spell out the first 10 digits of pi.

Get it? 3.141592653.

The mathematical constant, which refers to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, gets a nod every March 14. Math groups meet annually for pie-eating contests and see how many digits they can recite from memory, but this year is extra special. Boston Globe

Pi π 坊 Mar 15, 2015

曼彻斯特唐人街/中国城 /华埠的 Pi 坊来自其姊妹市中国武汉。这个以龙凤为主要题材的牌坊据说用了三个货柜箱运来在现场重新拼合。个人觉得好像宏伟过伦敦爵禄街 Gerrard Street 那两个牌坊。

始终觉得,市政府将 Gerrard 译成 “爵禄” 是一绝!(当然是以粤语译的咯。)

Manchester_Chinatown

春节在曼城的 billboard 仍在主要入城的路口可以看到。左方的山羊寓意羊年在即,设计得不错!

Manchester(s) Mar 19, 2015

谢谢 David 分享的英伦早春田园景色和图文并茂的曼彻斯特见闻。随着你的行文,弹指间已经把曼彻斯特浏览再三了。

说起 Manchester,我们这边也有30几个(吹牛上税 )。比如麻州的 Manchester (by-the-Sea), 是个非常漂亮的海边小城。
不过最值得一提的是被誉为 "the Manchester of America" 的 Manchester, New Hampshire;它真是英伦曼彻斯特奇迹般的完美拷贝。

QHE,

我去过 New Hampshire 的 Manchester。New Hampshire 还有 Concord, Portsmouth, Durham, Dover,Exeter 等,其名称也对应于某些英国城镇。如你所知,New Hampshire 本身就属于 New England。New Hampshire 不收 income tax,不收 sales tax,但不知吹牛是否上税。

美国还有很多名为 Canton 的城镇,甚至还有 Shanghai City:
