(中央社台北7日電)中國著名的雲南省麗江市老君山旅遊風景名勝區採取1項獨特措施--垃圾換早餐後,當地環境由壞變好,環保效果也頗佳。


老君山風景區地處全球生物多樣性最豐富的熱點地區之一,是3江(金沙江、瀾滄江、怒江)並流世界自然遺產地的重點示範區,享有「滇省眾山之祖」美譽。


新華社報導,老君山九十九龍潭景區負責人李樹成到各地旅遊時發現,擺放在各處的垃圾桶將美麗的風景擋住,而且垃圾桶本身就是垃圾,許多景區等垃圾桶滿了才處理,若景區內珍稀動物誤食,後果不堪設想。


基於對自然最純粹的保護和對動物的關愛,李樹成於2004年景區開放時推出一項環保措施--垃圾換早餐。


現場發現,九十九龍潭景區內沒有1個垃圾桶,當地唯一的人文景觀就是供遊客居住的群龍山莊。每位遊客入住時會得到1份特殊的禮物:1個布袋。景區承諾撿回1袋垃圾交到回收點,即可獲得一張價值10元人民幣的早餐券,次日享受免費早餐。


李樹成說,措施實行5年來,效果非常好。實行之初,每年約能回收80噸的垃圾,近幾年,遊客慢慢增多,回收的垃圾量每年約為150噸。目前,景區內已很難看到成堆的垃圾。


他說,這項環保措施是對人心靈的環保,到景區的遊客幾乎全部參與活動,人人都主動上交撿回的垃圾,有人甚至用雨傘和自己的衣服包回來。大多數遊客感動於這項措施,第2天自己花錢買早餐。


報導說,垃圾換早餐實施之初就引起各方關注。美國黃石公園策劃師和聯合國教科文組織專家都來考察,對此讚許有加。日本1位環保人士到景區19次,每次看到措施仍在進行,都覺得不可思議。來自台灣的幾位遊客說,這樣的環保措施是對「心靈的美容」。


李樹成說,自然環境不可複製,老君山是人類共有的遺產,每個人都有義務去保護它。980807(圖為麗江納西人 中央社資料照片)

〔編譯魏國金/綜合報導〕人類已經能登上月球,解開基因組的秘密,但有些人類行為,卻仍然讓科學家無法清楚解釋原因。最新一期「新科學家」雜誌就列出了
十種,包括臉紅、接吻與挖鼻孔。

這人類十大謎樣行為是:


●臉紅:達爾文努力解釋為何演化讓我們說謊時會臉紅;當我們臉紅時,他人會有所警覺。然而,有些人認為,臉紅可能有助於化解對立,或藉由洩漏弱點而增進
親密。


●笑:當我們笑時,提振情緒的腦內啡會釋放出來,這顯然是笑的原因,然而令人不解的是,一項長達十年的研究發現,平庸的言詞竟比笑話更具「笑果」。


●接吻:其原因不可能是遺傳性的,因為接吻並非遍行於所有人類社會,有理論指出,接吻與哺乳以及古人為讓孩子斷奶,而以嘴餵食的記憶有關,這強化了分享
唾液與歡愉的關聯。


●作夢:佛洛伊德認為夢境表達我們潛意識慾望的理論,已不被採信,作夢被認為有助於幫助我們處理情緒,然而為何我們會夢到怪異景象,則未能妥當解釋。


●迷信:該慣常行為沒有進化上合理解釋,有科學家認為,人腦的設計是用來發現模式並推論因果,因此給了不理性信仰的空間。


●挖鼻孔:惡心、普遍的習慣,但為何四分之一的未成年人喜歡挖鼻孔?而且平均每天挖四次?有人說這有助於提升免疫系統。


●青春期:沒有其他動物會經歷叛逆、難以預測的青少年期。有人認為這段期間有助於在成年期前大腦的重整,或者讓人開始承擔責任前,進行行為的實驗。


●利他行為:從進化角度看來,不求回報的給予是怪異的行為,有人認為利他或許純粹出於給予的快樂,或有助於群體的凝聚。


●藝術:人類在繪畫、舞蹈、音樂與雕塑的表現或許等同於孔雀開屏,展現自己的求偶能力。但也可能是傳播知識與分享經驗的方式。


●體毛:身體長出纖細毛髮,粗硬毛髮則分布於生殖器官的模式與其他靈長類動物相反,有人推測,陰毛粗硬的原因可能與散播氣味、提供溫暖甚至免於擦傷有
關。

看似不可思議,但被測者都發現能找到准確而奇妙的答案。

玩法:請從你出生年、月、日中,找出不同的數位。

例如:1978年12月9日,就有(2個1)(1個2)(1個7)(1個8)和(2個9)。

然後請參閱下文,就會知道你的感情表達能力、思維能力、失戀治療能力等內在玄妙了。

(2個1):你善於表達感情,面對心儀對象,往往能大膽示愛。由於你喜怒形於色,戀愛過程亦見順利。
(3個1):你不易透露心底秘密,往往經過深思熟慮,才會將事情告知他人,所以做你的情人要有十足耐性。
(4個1):你十分敏感,情緒起伏不定,毫不掩飾自己的喜怒哀樂,容易意志消沉,需要情人不時地鼓勵。

是部好看的電影,但不是hollywood式的好看,而是充滿真實生命的法國式

但是我鼓不起勇氣再看一次。整部片沒有煽情的台詞、聳動的畫面、或是矯作的橋段,但是它卻寫實得讓人感到殘忍和動容,重重的挑動人性最原始的神經,卻也在同時體認到生命及意志的美好。

這部片子讓我詞窮了... (部份原因是反正我文筆本來也不是很好)

在看的當下覺得這一切都太濃厚了,無法馬上嚥下,這種感覺並不是沈重,比較像是一口喝下濃烈的酒,當下完全無法作出反應,只有在回過神來才能分析它的味道,並在過了很久之後也對它念念不忘,且在每個不同的人生階段會有不同想法

看完這部片後 我法國有不同的想法

世人都說法國人浪漫,其實都是大大的誤解了他們,其實他們是最實際且cynical的民族,他們的人生哲學是建立在對生命真實體悟,享受性愛、美食和一切美好的事物,只是為了實踐對生命的熱情,捉住每一個當下罷了

還有法國女人都很美,很有韻味,可是男人都是怎麼了!?

Good corporate governance is more than compliance

Corporate governance, to me, is about maximizing shareholder value legally, ethically and on a sustainable basis. All of this while ensuring fairness to stakeholders - the company's customers, employees, investors and vendor-partners, the government, and the community at large. Corporate governance is the reflection of a company's culture and policies, its attitude toward stakeholders, and its commitment to values.

Good corporate governance serves several important objectives. It enhances the performance of corporations, by creating an environment that motivates managers to maximize returns on investment, enhance operational efficiency and ensure long-term productivity growth. Consequently, such corporations attract the best talent on a global basis. It also ensures the conformance of corporations with the interests of investors and society, by creating fairness, transparency and accountability in business activities among employees, management and the board

Longevity is the best index of success of a corporation, and good governance is a necessary condition for longevity and growth. Corporate growth requires investment. Good corporate governance increases public confidence in a corporation, and lowers the cost of capital for investment. According to a McKinsey study, over 60% of investors cite good governance practices in a corporation as a key factor in their investment decisions.

Today, capital flow is not constrained by national boundaries - it flows where it finds a hospitable climate. There is tremendous competition among nations - developed and developing - to attract global corporations and entrepreneurs to create high-quality, high-income jobs. These corporations and entrepreneurs require massive inflows of capital, but only an effective governance model can attract investment. It is in this context that I express my views on corporate governance.

Evolution of corporate governance practices

History is replete with examples of governance fraud - from the Great Depression of the early 1930s, widely perceived to have been triggered by corporate mismanagement and indifference toward workers, to the Enron debacle in 2001 followed by the collapse of WorldCom, Qwest and Tyco in 2002. Such major scandals and rising investor dissatisfaction with governance practices have led to demands to 'raise the baseline' of mandatory disclosure and compliance by corporations.
U.S Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt once remarked,"No longer is corporate governance an arcane topic for high-minded, legal debate. Today there is new, widespread concern regarding the standards of corporate behavior." These concerns have triggered a shift away from "soft law" such as comply-or-explain requirements. The emphasis is now on "hard law" - mandatory compliance requirements, with governance practices strictly supervised by regulators.

In the US, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the revised New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ listing rules have created stringent standards for financial disclosure, committee and board nominations, and audit policies. Many countries have followed the US in implementing stricter compliance. The European Commission expects its new corporate governance directive, scheduled to take effect by 2009, to enhance transparency laws and empower shareholders. In Asia, revised corporate governance regulations in several countries, including India, Hong Kong and Singapore, mandate much stricter compliance for corporations.

Need to go beyond regulations

Corporate governance programs must set an agenda for long-term returns by going beyond regulatory obligations. While SOX and other initiatives have created a framework for better governance, I believe that such rules-based regulations can succeed only if we create a mindset for decency, honesty and respectability among corporate leaders. It is true that, by and large, most corporate leaders are committed to these values. However, we must create disincentives for the small minority that has not imbibed them.

The continued shift towards 'hard law' and greater regulation in corporate governance can result in what the Wall Street Journal calls "governance at gunpoint." It is not possible to regulate every aspect of corporate behavior without adversely impacting operational flexibility of corporations, discouraging reckless risk-taking, and daunting the progress of honest corporations.

Also, government regulations are, after all, ethics that are externally mandated. It is instructive to remember the words of former US President Bill Clinton: "We must consider how excessive business regulation and 'box-ticking' will ensure business performance." An unethical company can bypass even the most draconian regulation. It can incorporate every governance practice in form, and still possess none of them in substance. Hence, government intervention in cases of non-compliance must act as a stimulant for progressive companies to go beyond the benchmark.

Good corporate governance cannot be legislated through a 'checklist' of rules and regulations. Compliance shouldn't be the primary driver of good governance. We must address the basic cause of corporate malfeasance - the lack of a strong environment for good governance within the corporation. I believe that any system is as good as the people who use it. Hence, the focus has to move toward creating an environment where respectability matters. What we need is self-assessment in the areas of ethics and performance at every level.

Corporations need to be sensitive to various aspects to ensure that their business operates within the realms of sound corporate governance. These include better board preparedness and balance of power, moderation in CEO salaries, bonuses and perks, increased accountability to shareholders, and creating a mindset that values decency and honesty. Business leaders must walk the talk to ensure penetration of these values into society.

Looking ahead

Where do regulatory compliance and corporate governance converge? Organizations are looking at their governance structure and processes to ensure compliance within the existing framework. I believe that in a world 'flattened' by globalization and technology, it is not sufficient to focus on internal mechanisms. Many aspects of the existing 'external' system must change.

Adopt a uniform global accounting standard

For one, the world should adopt a uniform global accounting standard. In today's environment of globalization, it is best if all nations agree to adopt the International Accounting Standards (IAS). This will make it easy to compare the performance of corporations of a particular industry across countries. In the absence of such a uniform accounting standard, Infosys has demonstrated its investor-friendliness by becoming the first company on NASDAQ to publish its balance sheet and income statement according to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) of the eight countries where we have investors - India, US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Japan and Australia.

Ensure 'responsible governance'

Corporations must ensure that incentives for senior management and board members are effectively aligned with responsible governance and long-term corporate health. The pay of principal officers must be directly linked with overall performance covering all functions of the corporation - operational health and efficiency, client and employee satisfaction, and shareholder value.

Create a strong climate of opinion in favor of respectability

Corporate leaders have to create a climate of opinion that values respectability in addition to wealth. I believe in seeking respect, since this forces me to do the right thing by every stakeholder. Such behavior ensures better employee retention, better sales and profits, better market capitalization and better compensation for me and others.

Business leaders must openly condemn their peers who do not follow a proper code of conduct, however influential they are. The economist Robin Matthews has noted that once we create a mindset where "the role of honesty in our social contracts becomes significant," the very threat of 'losing honor' within society becomes a preventive measure for greed.

Institute global awards for good corporate behavior

We must institute international awards for good corporate behavior, and promote a global corporate governance ranking system for Fortune 500 corporations. We have to create mechanisms to evaluate the contribution of independent directors across corporations, and institute awards for the best of them on a global basis.

Nurture Corporate Social Responsibility

Next, corporate social responsibility (CSR) must become a natural extension of corporate governance. Adopting higher CSR standards cannot be a regulation - or an industry-driven initiative. We have an obligation to contribute to human development and the sustainable growth of the world; all our activities must reflect our respect and concern for our people, community and environment.

Finally, as corporations trading on stock exchanges across the world, we must never lose sight of the fact that we are responsible to an extended society. Of course, abiding by the laws of all the nations we operate in and applying the basic principles of governance across various legal, economic and political systems are neither easy nor a matter of choice. But we must choose to go beyond them. We must commit to demonstrate good corporate citizenship, adopt high disclosure and reporting standards, and proactively participate in shaping better governance practices and standards.

Good governance has the power to transform into competitive advantage and enhanced stakeholder values. Responsible behavior is the catalyst that can effect this transformation. Let us imbibe it and make it part of our DNA.

「振保的生命裡有兩個女人,
他說一個是他的白玫瑰,
一個是他的紅玫瑰。
一個是聖潔的妻,
一個是熱烈的情婦──
普通人向來是這樣把節烈兩個字分開來講的。

也許每一個男子全都有過這樣的兩個女人,
至少兩個。娶了紅玫瑰,久而久之,
紅的變了牆上的一抹蚊子血,
白的還是“床前明月光”﹔
娶了白玫瑰,
白的便是衣服上的一粒飯粘子,
紅的卻是心口上的一顆朱砂痣。」

I went to Taipei Fine Arts Museum with Syenny and really enjoyed the show.
I saw several major works from Ito:
Sendai Mediatheque, completed in 2001, was hailed as the representative architectural work of the new century, and stirred up a passion for the Ito style throughout the architectural world. This is also one of my favorite, because of its large space and open design. people can see through and window and perceive messages from different level as well as a coherent interal structure.
Tod's Omotesando Building, completed on April 2004. Because the neighborhood is surrounded by trees, Ito decides to incorporate the surrounding with the structure. Thus, he modified branches of trees and overlapped them to make an outer line.
Serpentine Gallery Pavillon, 2002 London. This is one of my favorite as well. Here we can clearly observe how Ito deploys the use of nonlinear geometry. He draws a square first and duplicate, enlarge as well as overlapping them in different angles. As a result, he creates a complex yet organized rectangular space for the citizens.
There are also MIKIMOTO Ginza2 Building as well as New Library for Tama Art University. the MIKIMOTO building is designed after the shape of pearls and he uses rectangulars and triangles with round angles. Besides, the whole building is in pearl pink! New Library for Tama Art University is awesome, I wish we could one of those in Taiwan. Multiple arcs are around the four facades of the building, as well as within. Such shape gives a serene atmosphere as well as an open space. Large windows gives users a great view toward the beautiful surrounding woods.

Toto Ito believes that architecture is the act of givingshape to order: utilizing pure geometry to transform stable, stationary order into a building, in correlation with the constant change of nature and society.

I'm glad to know that there are three major projects running in three largest cities of Taiwan. The Main Stadium for 2009 World Games, Kaohsiung City, the Taichung Metropolitan Opera House and the National Taiwan University, New college of social science. The Main Stadium will be completed on Jan 2009. I'm looking forward to see that work. It employes many solar panels with an angle that is specially designed for the growth of plants and ventilation. 9 dimps around the building creates supportive functionalities to the main building. Passengers can even enjoy the passion within the Stadium through its opening design.

上次說要開始讀原文書,可是太懶啦,一看到密密麻麻的英文就想睡覺,最近倒是買了一大堆中文書,覺得有些都些都不錯想推薦給大家

1.世界是平的 美國人的書

之前好像就推過這本書了,可是我一直沒有力氣把它看完,因為它內容其實還蠻硬的,裡頭很多的道理其實我們從報章雜誌就可以懂了 可是作者提出很多例子讓我更深刻了解這些現象的始末(譬如說資源共享:他就會從Linux的創始人或是阿帕契共享系統講起,把每個人都當科技門外漢<事實上我的確是啦>,最近覺得受益良多且習習相關的是walmart的供應鍊整合及UPS的insourcing。)他說的這些東西,對於每一個身為世界公民的大家,都應該是必備的常識,anyway,這是一本有內容但需要細細咀嚼的書,推薦給想要自我充電的人。(因為太用腦力,所以我把它先丟給我弟看XD”)

2.不生病的生活 日本人的書
這本書是前陣子的暢銷書,可能是因為標題太聳動了吧,再加上是一位號稱美國首席胃腸界權威的日本醫生的書,我只看了約1/3,裡頭的觀點,其實有些大大的顛覆了常識,他覺得優酪乳和奶製品對胃腸反而是有害的,還有人的健康完全取決一個叫做「神奇酵素」的東西,裡頭大部份的篇幅在介紹什麼叫做神奇酵素,他還提倡他的「不浪費神奇酵素的健康生活法」,看的我都昏頭了,不過他有些觀點也是有道理啦,只是沒必要搞得像在傳教一樣。

3.雅子妃 菊花王朝的囚徒 澳洲人寫日本人的書
買這本書的動機是想了解日本皇室文化以及對現代女性的分析,裡頭對日本皇室的敘述真令我瞠目結舌,傳統的封建保守和迷信誇張到讓我覺得這跟本不應該發生在二十一世紀的今天,掌管皇室的宮內廳監控了皇族成員的一舉一動,雅子妃連要買個新洋裝,見朋友或是剪頭髮都得經過宮內廳的批準,出外逛街基本上是不可能的事,讓人覺得日本皇室只是生活優渥的囚犯。還有日本的右派分子是用如何的激進手段恫嚇媒體和大眾,來保持對於「傳統&皇族」的尊敬,讓我看到了日本社會很不民主的一面。不過這都是作者的觀點啦,即使他有收集很多資料,但也許多多少少會摻雜個人的意見。本書推薦給,想要覺得自己的人生其實很幸運的人XD”

4.群 德國人的科幻小說
其實也沒有那麼科幻啦,他寫的東西都是現實存在的生物,只是提醒我們如果這些生活集體反撲,人類其實只有等死的份,是一部具環保意識的作品,因為不想透露劇情,所以不再介紹,引人入勝而且可以充實知識,是我最愛的書籍類型。一共分上下冊,明年會拍成電影上市,好像是由烏瑪舒曼主演。推薦給每個人:D

剛剛還買了偷書賊和史丹佛的銀色子彈,買偷書賊的原因是水準書店老闆大力推薦,用半買半送的方式推銷(原價320他賣我200),在貪小便宜的心態下就買了這本書,應該不錯看吧…(去過師大水準書店的人都知道老闆賣書的方式很奇特…)

買的另一本是王文華的史丹佛的銀色子彈,其實我以前沒有特別喜歡王文華,也沒看過蛋白質女孩或是他其它的小說,不過上次偶然在career雜誌上看到他的專欄,裡頭有一句話是:競爭力就是做最好的自己,讓我一直牢記在心。(很想po那個專欄上來,如果我找到電子檔會再補po),還有之前他寫了篇「白天紐約、夜晚巴黎」,兩篇都引起我的共鳴(可以在我的blog找到),所以就決定要買他這一本書。

以上的書我都有,歡迎大家和我借,不過要等我看完啦:P
