槍牌

29th Jun 2007 - 10:18pm 生活隨筆
相信大部份男性對槍械也情有獨鐘﹐是小時候看槍戰電影時 ﹐總會幻想自己像主角一樣是槍神手﹐放學與朋友拿玩具槍﹐口中高呼砰砰彭彭的駁火。很多年前我在美國試射過真槍﹐一直以來也很想玩射擊運動。在香港射擊是一門十分冷門的運動﹐全港大約只有二千人持有槍牌。一般市民想擁有槍械十分困難﹐除了要負擔高昂的槍會費用﹐還以通過重重關卡才獲發槍牌﹐射擊只是富貴人家才能享受的高尚玩意。在美國的情況則是另一個極端﹐差不多任何人也可以購買槍械。市面槍械泛濫﹐所以久不久新聞就有狂徒開槍連環殺人的報導。加拿大的槍械法案則取兩者的平衡﹐保障市民安全之餘﹐又不過份限制市民參與射擊運動的自由。…

No wonder I am tried like hell when I got home today. I have a full day of work, plus 2 hours of driving and 4 hours of classes. That is almost like working a double shift. Fortunately, I only have one more class left on Friday. At first, I just pick up…

Project management

Blink – Malcolm Gladwell

23rd Jun 2007 - 10:25pm 書評
若要找一個詞語來形容Malcolm Galdwell﹐我想最適合的詞語大慨是一代宗師(Guru)。他只出版過兩本薄薄的小書﹐但他為社會帶來革新性的影響﹐被時代週刊選為全球百大最有影響力人物之一。我讀完他的第一本著作Tipping…

電燈是廿十世紀的最偉大發明﹐它照亮著人類的文化。讓人類征服黑暗﹐不用再依靠日光﹐脫離日出而作﹐日入而息的原始生活。我們終於可以取回屬於我們時間主權﹐晚間不用給無盡的黑夜支配。燈光是人類文明誌標﹐也是一個城市繁榮的象徵。從太空中回看地球﹐看到陸地上一個一個的光點﹐見證著人類進化的歷史。人類擁有自己光源﹐社會才能夠更有效率地運作﹐人們可以繼續辛勤地工作﹐也可以外出娛樂玩耍﹐晚上不用再無所事事。現代的城市二十四小時全天候運作﹐把黑夜照量得象白天一樣。地球不是平的﹐與其他地方工作有時差﹐朝九晚五不再是必然的上班規律。再者讓大量社會資源在晚上丟空﹐也是一種浪費﹐不若物盡其用﹐把黑夜變為過去的名詞。把黑夜照亮成為白天﹐不單只方便人們生活﹐更改善可以城市的治安。美國紐約八十年代罪惡橫行﹐市長朱尼安尼上任決心要整頓市容﹐他的其中一項措施就是改善晚間照明。今天大蘋果是美國治安的典範﹐也是一座繁華美麗的不夜城。…
