YU Can I go in to see her now? QI You can. YU Thank you. YU Yes. YU Get married now? QI Come over, you two get up and stand. QI Hold this now. QI The first step, exchange your rings. YU I do. QI No one here objects to your marital union, marriage is approved. YU Thank you for the great present. YU Grandma. Now we are husband and wife, a married couple. YU It seems like you keep making demands for us. YU You want to hold your great grandson, so you should fight hard like you always did, fight really hard again and wait for me to come home.
YU Cool right? YU She seems pretty conscious and her spirits seem good, do you think she might still be in danger? QI Spiritual effect is important, maybe when she sees you in front of her she will get better soon. YU I really hope so. YU Love you, my wife. Only in this way will I have a story to tell my readers. I was not being hypocritical, and it was not a ready-made answer I had come along with.
All I did was tell the boss what I really thought at the bottom of my heart. Contrary to my expectations, after going through three stages of interviews, I got the job. However, one thing Donny told me changed my life in the United States: "Nick, even though you are a management trainee, you first need to work in Sales for a month. This is a company tradition. All of the company's management staff, including myself, first started working in Sales.
Therefore, I insist that you too work in that department for a month. Indeed, regardless of the industry in which you work, if you do not know how to talk to sell a product, no matter how much was invested in research and development, no one will buy this product. It will all have been in vain. All industries need salespeople, but not everyone has salesmanship. Among new staff especially, outstanding personnel with high education degrees, many find it below their dignity to go from door to door to visit the customers. Generally, people dismiss themselves," Donny often says.
I enjoy travel and adventure. I am often out there, roaming around. I have worked for a Taiwanese employer, and as a volunteer for NGOs in various countries. Writing my book, I have also been my own employer. But Donny was indeed the most sincere, the youngest and the most imaginative manager I ever met. This year, Donny is in his early twenties, and his way of thinking may not be representative of the American working culture; but I think his demands regarding his employees are really worth sharing with you here.
First of all, Donny requires that all of his employees start working at the bottom of the ladder. Only in this way can the future management trainees have enough knowledge to instruct their juniors, when they have to manage new staff. Besides, he would often tell us how many recent graduates have more ambition than abilities: they think their high education degree entitles them to a high salary. But from a manager's perspective, "Your employer does not know what your abilities are. Why would he agree to hire you at a high salary?
The highest salaries are granted to the most competent people. Actually, most young people, including myself, tend to overestimate their abilities. Even though they cannot carry out their present work properly, they will always remain on the look-out for occasions to go job-hopping. But if you cannot prove your worth to anyone, and are incapable of persistence, how can anyone place their trust in you? Moreover, Donny also requires everyone to preserve a cheerful state of mind.
He does not allow any negative comments inside the office. When the new staff starts to work in Sales, they will often find themselves in unpleasant situations: for instance, being harshly rejected by a customer, or being treated very coldly. But in such situations, you must remain cheerful, otherwise you cannot be rational about your way of speaking and rectify the situation. One's mood should not affect one's interaction with the next customer, and as a result, add to one's difficulties. For that reason, Donny believes the "SEE factor" Smile, Eye Contact, Enthusiasm is an indispensable element to understand in order to be successful in one's career, or in one's interactions with people.
Finally, according to Donny, many people nowadays lack a student mentality. His point is that many people are unwilling to study a new system, and will even deem themselves too intelligent to follow the system. For instance, the company organizes for the benefit all new employees a course of "Speech Technique.
Donny says many new employees think they have plenty of sales experience, and do not need to learn any speech technique. When they are met with a setback, they quickly go back to learning, but at that point they have already missed that great improvement opportunity. Actually, in summary, when you enter a new environment, you must learn to forsake all previous experiences, and turn yourself into a blank slate.
Everyone you meet is an object of study. Whether you agree with them or not, at least they are able to survive in this environment, they have abilities. You must remain modest. This article was written for young people looking for work, or who have found work.
In this way, you will feel satisfied with your job, and you will agree to compete a long time in a certain position. You will even feel happier, thanks to your progression. As long as you have these, you will be successful whatever you undertake.
Come on guys, we can do it! Regional North-South differences regarding culture, as an influence on martial arts. Martial arts culture is a component of traditional Chinese culture; in the same way North-South differences exist in Chinese culture, such differences can be found in the realm of martial arts. Since those differences are consequences of different choices in technique and style, they also entail discrepancies in esthetic appreciation.
French-English Dictionary (35,273 Entries)
Influence of the Northern regional culture on martial arts In the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River, heart of the Northern culture, the air is cold and dry. At the time of mid-winter festival, especially, it is hard to resist the biting-cold wind while practicing outside, which makes it necessary to jump and run continuously with speed and vigor in order to increase body heat, which represents common features of Northern martial schools. Since the Yellow River flows through the North, it runs across the vast and boundless Mongolian grasslands, in which nomad herders were in need of cereal, fabrics and metal handicrafts ; at times when they were unable to acquire those through peaceful means, they often resorted to plunder, and confrontation was hard to avoid.
Life in such an environment shaped Northern culture into the tough, down-to-earth, crude and bold way it still assumes. Under the imperceptible influence of this cultural background and folklore, the Northern martial school adopted its distinctive technique, style, and esthetic standards.
Studying the Northern schools of chaquan, huaquan, tongbeiquan, xingyiquan, or babuquan, among others, clearly shows common features — characterized by their soberness, generosity, strength and sturdiness, with clear distinctions between movement and quietness, and comprehensive harmonization — that walk hand-in-hand with local folklore and habits.
Influence of the Southern regional culture on martial arts Southern climatic and geographic features are opposite to those in the North. Precipitations are even all through the year, at least twice as much? Moreover, rivers and lakes are numerous and widespread; excellent climatic conditions are present for crops that need heat and moisture, and for a thriving aquatic life as well. People from those regions are not afflicted with the troubles found in the North, which enables them to savor the present moment, while the vast rivers and lakes and the ever-changing weather makes it easy to indulge in reverie.
In such an environment, Southern culture was almost bound to acquire its distinctive light-spirited, lively and imaginative streak. Folkways, in turn, are usually witty, fierce, frivolous and exquisite. On another hand, the density of Southern population, concentrated in small areas, had an oppressive influence over human living space and also directly influenced the actual space in which to practice martial arts movements.

It was against such cultural background that the lands of the nanquan Southern fist , nandao Southern blade or nangun Southern stick boxing lying cow? Southern schools have a long history, dating back to more than four hundred years ago ; compared to the elegantly bold, generous and vast-ranging Northern schools, in the small and crowded South movements are restrained to the upper half of the body — head, neck, torso, waist and upper limbs — and the techniques are even more characteristic, based on steady footsteps but nimble and shifting hand moves, ferocious boxing and spirited sword-fight, shouting often being used to help release physical strength.
Such are the stylistic characteristics that have seeped into Southern culture, and which naturally express themselves. Northern and Southern martial arts, united in their view of "the Union of Heaven and Man" Martial arts, which take root in the very soil of Chinese civilization, and have now reached a state of perfect cultural morphology, were bound to embody all the depth of oriental philosophy ; it was also very likely that they would stand as a core and a direction in which to build original theoretical bases.
The ultimate goal of "the union of Heaven and Man" is the harmony of the universe, nature, man and all things as a whole.

The values and viewpoints associated with the pursuit of harmony run through the ways of thought and the practical rules of martial arts; for instance, martial arts equate harmony of body and heart with truth, interpersonal harmony with virtue, and the union of Heaven and Man with beauty. The "union of Heaven and Man" became characteristic of the particular beauty of martial arts, and served as a foundation for their development. This philosophical system blends the quintessences of Northern and Southern martial arts, and is the cornerstone over which each of them managed to preserve regional stylistic particularities while at the same time possessing common principles and values.

Martial arts hold "the harmony of Body and Heart" as true All types of martial arts view the life of the human body as one great system, in which heart and body are united; from this viewpoint, a human being must be considered and trained as a whole. The human body is the medium of martial arts techniques, to such an extent that their strengths and weaknesses and those of this medium are closely linked.
The advantages of the medium can be divided into external strengths and internal ones, external strengths are obviously important but more important still are internal strengths. The shapes of the body should be trained from outside, and the spirit from within : training through the idea lian yi , the breath lian qi and the strength lian li are the three key components of martial arts techniques. Northern schools aim at "training the hand, the eye and the body from outside to follow the proper sequences, and training the spirit and the breathing force from inside".
Bodily movement that trains the shape and nourishes the spirit, be it with or without the help of machines, helps achieve the objective of building up a strong body and soul. According to Southern schools, "shape for the fist, idea for the spirit" : this emphasizes the "Five harmonies and the Three urges". The "Five harmonies" stand for "the harmony of hand and eye, eye and heart, shoulder and hip, body and step, up and down".
In the course of training following the Southern technique, the hand must move following the eye, the spirit revolve according to the eye, and the idea be shown by the hand. Only in this way can the Southern technique be used as encompassing the whole body, in a single breath? From this can be seen that both Northern and Southern schools deem that shape is exterior, they mutually condition and unite the whole body.
Martial arts hold "interpersonal harmony" as a virtue During their process of formation and development, not only did martial arts give shape to theories, techniques and rules encompassing their uniqueness entirely, they also allowed the appearance of a closely linked moral system, often referred to as martial ethics. While martial arts schools are numerous indeed, and each of them has particularities and a style of its own, all of them attach great importance to asceticism as part of martial ethics, focus on personal and interpersonal harmony, and always favor tolerance and generosity whenever they govern human relationships.
Each of them also instituted its own set of strict rules and discipline regarding the respect in which to hold one's master, as well as regarding the defense of Good and punishment of Evil. For instance : "Whoever has not yet practiced art shall first practice politeness; whoever has not yet practiced martial arts shall first practice ethics". Or: "Fists should be trained for virtuous purposes". In the course of studying martial arts, one should stay "benevolent, polite, honest, honorable, modest, generous and tolerant", in order to foster interpersonal harmony.
In the highest realm of Chinese martial arts, in the North as in the South, practitioners and documents alike view martial arts discipline and rules as necessary to promote martial ethics as a standard and a basis for judgement. Martial arts hold "harmony of Heaven and Man" as beauty Harmony of Heaven and Man, referring to the unity of the cosmos with the human body, is an avatar of the Chinese classical philosophical theory of Unity of Heaven and Man, but is also one of the main aspects of the thought, knowledge and practices surrounding martial arts, as well as part of the fundamentals of martial arts training and mastery.
In the course of long-standing practice, both Northern and Southern schools concluded that the subject constituting the main object of martial arts activities — the human body — and the main object of the cosmos? Man is part of nature, has to submit to the rules it edicts, and follow similarly the rules of great transformations. Furthermore, "hard and soft benefit each other, the real and the virtual are clear-cut, forward and backward come in sequence", openness and closure are limited?
Under the influence of the "harmony of Heaven and Man" frame of find, Northern and Southern schools alike profess learning from all beings, studying Heaven and Earth, and from the phenomena of natural transformations access spiritual enlightenment, acquire and include among fighting techniques the shapes, movements, attack and defense strategies pertaining to all flying creatures and wild beasts. This fusion of natural elements into martial arts techniques is the most vivid corporal evidence of the union of Heaven and Man, and is man's imitation of the patterns of natural beauty.
Out of the comprehension of Nature's particular patterns, martial arts masters fused "round" or "empty" movements into their martial arts practices. Roundness and emptiness are fundamental features of Nature, Heaven and Earth, as well as movement's most excellent ways and states. Roundness is nimble and ever-changing, emptiness is light and ever-flowing; both are naturally vivacious, ever-cycling and metamorphosing — as a result, roundness and vacuity are at the core of the Shaolin school stances and manners; Taijiquan requires that everywhere a curve be brought; the Eight Trigrams boxing is ruled by the circle; and the teachings of the Southern Fist count the use of the "enclosed bridge"?
Quite obviously, the numerous schools and techniques of martial arts all pursue complete bodily circular integration — correct moves are circular ones. In a word, China having a very vast territory, there are very significant differences between Northern and Southern climates and geography; local customs, practices and traditions also widely diverge.
Such a landscape conferred Chinese martial arts their diverse styles and multiformity. Only through the different styles of Northern and Southern martial arts schools can different cultural backgrounds, values and customs pertaining to people's various esthetic demands be satisfied.
From another perspective, on a deep philosophical level, martial arts are greatly similar; only through this similarity can we understand and master the essence of martial arts, and adopt the right strategies in the course of their advancement and development. This activity enables a much more thorough analysis of a project's technical and financial implications. Modelling and simulation provide greater clarity through information necessary to support key decisions and risk evaluation of projects.
Designing the specific details of the system including hardware selection and system routing is the final step prior to project implementation. Renewable energy system design for successfully implemented projects is based on the results of the feasibility study; system modelling; and performance simulation. A key target of the design process is appropriate hardware selection, completed within budget for a given system design. This enables performance evaluation and tracking to build a database of information for future improvements to the given project or others.
Translation - English The success of any renewable energy project begins from its inception. Prescribing the appropriate technology for a particular site is essential to realize the true benefits of renewable energy. A project site's surrounding natural landscape must compliment the operation of renewable energy technology for it to be a justified investment.
This exercise determines the best renewable energy options to undergo prefeasibility assessments and prevents wasting time investigating nonviable options. This exercise is a deeper investigation of the technical viability of a renewable energy project. A favourable prefeasibility assessment paves the way for a comprehensive second stage feasibility analysis. The results provide a client with clear financial figures and system performance metrics necessary for basing investment decisions.
Local regulatory requirements, operating costs, risk analysis, and cash flow impacts are some of the issues that are explored in a feasibility analysis. Built on years of experience in the North American and European markets, our leading-edge tools and methodology are industry based best practices. These significant cuts are achievable. Significant building energy is wasted due to poor design, insufficient technology and inappropriate behaviors.
Residences and businesses need to apply expertise and finance to develop and promote new approaches to energy efficiency, but transformation will not be achieved through the market alone. Unless people are aware of the energy consumption of the services they use in buildings they cannot make energy-related choices and cannot measure progress. Both new and existing buildings can be made more energy-efficient using a combination of passive and active measures in design and operation.
Incorporating the best design and technical solutions in new and existing buildings can cut energy use by about two-thirds, without considering improving the performance of small appliances and equipment used in the building.

Low-energy buildings must become the norm rather than the exception. Therefore, our assessments rest upon: 1. Energy conservation: more reasonable consumption, less energy waste. Energy Efficiency: reducing energy needs through insulation works, replacement of outdated and ineffient equipments. Renewable energies integration. According to this view, renewable energies should not be considered a panacea to energy efficiency problems, and only be used after the two preceding stages have been thoroughly implemented. It should be noticed that Stage 1 of this methodology allows for very easily reaped financial savings, which can finance in part Stage 2, and diminish the investment necessary for Stage 3.
A las , partimos con rumbo al sur desde el Valle de los Chillos. Unas venas blancas rodeaban la mitad de su cuerpo. Mientras las nubes lo acariciaban con sutileza. Todo era silencioso y en calma salvo por los cantos de las aves y el u.. Yadi, presurosa intentaba encender el fuego. Translation - English July 10 The night preceeding our visit to the Cotopaxi was cold and rainy.
Nonetheless, trusting in the fluctuating weather of the previous months, I suspected that on Sunday the sun would rise clear. And indeed, that morning, my guest Julie felt the burn of a radiant sun on her European skin. We left at am, heading towards the south and the Valle de los Chillos. We travelled over 20 km in the company of the sun, but we met rain and fog on the 4 km remaining before our destination.
Our spirits were lifted again, despite it all, as we rejoiced in knowing we would soon set eyes on the beautiful scenery that awaited us. And so it was. The sky opened up little by little, letting us gaze at the colossus of ice. A number of white veins encircled it in the middle, as it stood under the light caress of the clouds. The wind blew over the plants, swaying them and turning them into merry weathervanes.
Flowers tinted everything in sight, inviting us to capture the moment in a photo. We reached the ticket control of Cotopaxi National Park, where we paid a dime to enter; a few minutes later, we had arrived at Limpiopungo Lagoon. While the sun seemed intent on melting the snow on the volcano, the wind competed with it, producing gusts of wind that gave the clouds a desire to cry. We traveled around the lagoon in the midst of this unusual phenomenon, which dampened our clothes on our shoulders and legs, while we stayed dry on the front.
But what of it? The trip was so worthwhile, thanks to all the beauty that met our senses Suddenly, at last, between the mountains, I spotted a huge bird, which I suspected was a condor; yet at the same time, I thought it could not be, for it is very rare to see them flying over this area full of tourists and travellers.
We celebrated this unexpected encounter by having some tea, eating chocolate and drying ourselves up, lying on the ground. We had reached an altitude of m above sea level, and were surrounded by birds from various species: Andean gulls, Andean ducks, water hens, and gligles. With the altitude weighing on us already, we needed to recover some energy, therefore we decided to light a bonfire and eat under a wall of stones which we found in the middle of the pajonal. Birds seemed to live there, among which the owls we were looking for.
Julie relished the peace of the mountain. YadIquickly tried to light the fire. It was a difficult task, for the humidity affected even the driest twigs. The sound of the owls and the continuous visits of a sparrow-hawk caught the attention of my companions, who decided to look for the nest. The day went by slowly and though we did not want it to end, we had to go back to city life.
We abandoned the territory of the birds with regret, while in our backs the snow-covered one cleared away its clouds, and treated us to a rainbow. The light of the afternoon continued revealing more and more secrets to us, as we drove back home. If only my home was the mountain! Grew up in France, lived in the UK and China.
