President’s Message會長的話

The world is but one nation and its citizens one people. Beneath our skin,we have the make up of a human being. As a medical doctor myself, I knowfull well that with the scientific knowledge we have, I can treat anyoneof any colour or background who walks into my Clinic.Similarly with our international knowledge, we can also seek work in anypart of the world which need our talent and skill. What a wonderful worldwe can have and live in. That is the theme of this cover issue.Human civilisation and political governance have come a long way in thedevelopment of human history. However, human beings and their societiesstill grapple with the ideas of how to live together in harmony and sharedsecurity and prosperity. Many countries in this 21st century have achievedthe basis of a good governance and government that we can proudlyrecognised as advanced civilised societies. Australia is one of them in myopinion.Like many advance civilised nations, Australia has also been through a lotof trial and error to get to its current successful nation state.Australia is made up of many migrants coming from over 180 nationalitiesaround the world apart from about 3 % of citizens who can claim themselvesas indigenous population.
Australia was formed as a colony of United Kingdom in 1788. Most of herpopulation is still anglo-saxon origin. A White Australia policy was inplace until early 1970 when non-white population suffered severeddiscrimination and oppression especially our indigenous population. Since1972, it gradually changes for the good of all citizens regardless of itscolours, language, religion and background. It has transformed into anegalitarian multiracial and multicultural nation. All citizens are equalunder the rule of laws and protected by its democratic governance andinstitutions. A report by the Australian Citizenship Council published inFebruary 2000 by the Commonwealth of Australia outlined the mutualobligation and duties of its citizens and government, working together tocreate a harmonious society/nation with shared security, duties andprosperities.
Although many advanced civilised nation like Australia have fairly similarstable , good governance and governments but our multicultural policiesstand out among the few. It is well worth for any developing nation tofollow.

All the best wishes for the year 2013.

主席的话

地球乃一国,万众皆其民。在我们的皮肤下面我们有同样的人体结构。我本人作为一个医生,非常清楚地知道鉴于我们拥有的科学知识,我能治疗来到我诊所具有任何肤色和任何背景的人。

同样的道理,鉴于我们的国际知识,我们也可以在世界需要我们才能和技术的任何地方寻找工作,我们可以有我们能生活居住的多么美好的世界。这便是本文的主题。

人类文明和政治治理在人类历史发展中经过了漫长的道路。但是,人类和他们的 社会仍然对如何和睦共处、共享安全和繁荣的理念“挣扎拼搏”。许多国家在21世纪奠定了良好治国的基础并建立了我们可以自豪地公认为先进文明社会的政府,我认为澳大利亚是其中之一的国家。

正像许多先进的文明国家一样,澳大利亚也经过许多尝试和错误才达到其目前成功的国家状况。

澳大利亚除了其约3% 的公民是可以自称为原住民外,是由许多移民组成的,他们来自世界各地180个以上的民族。

澳大利亚在1788年成为大不列颠和北爱尔兰联合王国的一个殖民地,其大部分人口仍然是盎格鲁撒克逊人的后裔。白澳政策直到二十世纪70年代初才被废止,在此之前,非白种人口受种族歧视和压迫。特别是我们的原住民。从1972年以来有关政策逐渐改变得对所有的公民有利 ,而不论其肤色、语言、宗教和背景如何。澳大利亚转变成为一个主张人人平等的多民族、多元文化的国家。所有公民在法律规定下都是平等的并得到其民主治理和法律机构和政府的保护。澳大利亚联邦政府于20002月公布的澳大利亚公民委员会的报告概括了其公民和政府双方的义务和责任,共同努力致力于创建一个共享安全和繁荣并共同承担责任的和谐的社会和国家。

虽然许多与澳大利亚一样具有先进文明的国家有颇为相同稳定良好的治国理念和政府,但是澳洲的多元文化的政策在为数不多的国家之中尤为突出。这值得任何发展中的国家仿效。

致以2013年最良好的祝愿

Grievance Debate - Chinese Acknowledgement

Chris Hayes MP – Adjournment – Multiculturalism 25 June 2013


Dear all

Japanese W11 Atrocity is still fresh in our mind. Less we forget.

The current Japanese Prime Minister Abe is not "an exemplary International Citizen" no matter how much Tony Abbott wishes to curry favour with him. He should at least take note of what Malcolm Fraser, Bob Hawke and John Howard's opinion. He should go back to learn the history of Japanese's atrocity during W11 including treatments received by Australian POW in Sandakan etc.

Tony Abbott should also join international friends of Japan including many Japanese citizens, telling Abe to follow the real " exemplary international citizen" i.e. German President HE Angela Merkel.

Japan should return the "disputed islands Senkaku or Diaoyu islands" back to China as promised after their surrender in 1945 and pay lots of compensation to China and other affected countries. Then the current conflict will be resolved immediately. The American President Obama should advice Japan to do likewise. We do not need an arm race in the Asia Pacific region. We certainly do not need a war to resolve the current conflict which is being blown out of proportion by Abe.

快活−國畫古詩


President of 80-20, U.S.A.


WANT TO HELP STRIKE A BLOW to create the “deterrent
effect
” that will prevent future derogatory depictions of people of
Chinese descent?


UNITE! Demand that FOX TV FIRE this talking head who on a
public broadcast said:


"The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
security of the U.S.
,” a talking head on FOX TV said on
7/10. "They have been, they will be and they can
wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just
did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a
bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do
computers and then they go back to China and hack
into us."


Click here to hear the racist xenophobic statement, expressed with
such hateful body language and hand gestures. He seems bent on
inciting a race war against Chinese. He had damaged grievously
the psychological, physical and career welfare of Chinese-Ams.


For such a serious offense, an apology is NOT enough.
He must be FIRED.


Clipper's owner Donald Sterling was banned from NBA for life and
forced to sell the team for his racial slur against black in a private
conversation.
This talking head called ALL people of Chinese
descent “the single biggest threat to the national security of the US”
and used a “C word” in a public broadcast!


America came down hard on Sterling, as it should. Why is my
country so silent on this talking head, Fox TV and Mr. Murdock??


80-20 shall never quit in this demand. We want this to be
the LAST such statements in major TV channels — establishing
a “deterrent effect”. Otherwise, frequent statements against
people of Chinese descent will occur. Our nation could become
so psychologically conditioned to implicitly and explicitly act
AGAINST the rightful interests of Chinese- and Asian-Americans.


We have a huge amount of tools ready to call this to Fox’s
attention. See Footnote 1.


For now, however, we’ll try REASONING. Please send email to
Roger Ailes, Pres. of Fox News Channel
roger.ailes@foxnews.com and Comments@foxnews.com .
Use your own words or state:


“Subject: Fire Beckel or I’ll boycott Fox


Fire Bob Beckel for the sake of ethnic harmony,
world peace and your own reputation. I'll NEVER
abandon this demand. If you do fire Beckel, I'll
remember and respect you for it. If you don’t,
I’ll help create a boycott of products of Fox
advertizers by Chinese people worldwide.
Your name, city and sate”


Do it now! This may not work. So start organizing your own
community and friends and get ready for a big and long battle.
Thank you.


Respectfully,


S. B. Woo, a volunteer

China presents an olive leaf to USA

http://news.yahoo.com/china-urges-u-more-objective-ahead-key-meeting-025355247--business.html
BEIJING (Reuters) - China and the United States need to "plant more flowers, not thorns" in their relationship and Washington needs to have a more objective view about China, state media on Thursday quoted President Xi Jinping as saying ahead of a key meeting.
Xi, speaking to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson ahead of next week's China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue, said he hoped both countries could use such gatherings to keep "injecting positive energy" into the relationship.
"The two sides should expand common interests, deepen cooperation, plant more flowers, not thorns, clear the interference and avoid suspicion and confrontation," Xi was quoted as saying by the official China Daily.
China would stick to the path of peaceful development and shoulder its international duties, Xi added.
"We hope the U.S. will objectively view China's basic national conditions as well as its domestic and foreign policies," he said.
China and the United States, as the world's two largest economies, have close trade and business ties and work together on important international issues like North Korea.
But they also have deep differences, over everything from human rights to the value of the Chinese currency.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who will attend the Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing, said on Tuesday the yuan's value was a "very big issue" for the United States and that the currency needed to appreciate more.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is also attending, and will likely have to address Chinese concerns over what Beijing views as Washington's support for Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines over their territorial disputes with China.
China's increasingly assertive tone in the disputed East and South China Seas, as well as its rising military expenditure, have rattled nerves in the region and in Washington.

大家好,

一篇有血有泪的好文章。孙中山先生曾批评国人是一盆散沙,台湾作家柏杨也痛心疾首地指出中国人一个人是龙,一群人成虫。柏杨君的话虽然有失于偏颇,说的是卻实情。换言之,不少同胞都是"自了汉"(只顾自己,不顾大局者谓之),一般缺乏洋人崇尚而且多有的团队精神( Esprit de corps,意指 feelings of loyalty, enthusiasm, and devotion to a group among people who are members of the group )。最方便的证据是球类比赛:桌球羽毛球中国运动员曾多次荣获世界冠军;然而一旦要求团队合作的比赛,例如篮球和足球,中国队就肯定场场敬陪末座。谚语有"见微知著"之说,谓"看到微小的苗头,就知道可能会发生显著的变化。比喻小中见大、以小见大"也。

明白这一点,也就能明白为什么一些小国,如越南和菲律宾,对于美俄有时也会礼让几分的中国,在中国南海的主权争端中,居然近乎为所欲为而且占了便宜还卖乖。或问莫非这两国吃了狼心豹胆乎 ?非也! 只系睇穿了中国的二仔底,出大事时中国人未必能举国同仇敌忾,进而一心一德共赴国难,不达目的决不甘休而已!

记得此前国内有超英赶美之说,其立意本来不坏,盖有竞争才有进步,中国如是,美国亦如是也。虽然,前者已经成为事实,不过律以今日所见的国人普遍德性,鄙见认为后者还是以暂时免提为上策。庶几不致蒙受异想天开之讥也 ! 祸哉 !

“独善其身”是中国人最低劣的民族性
作者:菅保珠

(转自微信)

有血性的民族,才能得到别人的尊重。

二战德军抓捕了苏联女军人卓雅,对她施以难以启齿的折磨,包括轮奸,割乳等等,最终坚贞不屈被折磨而死。战争尾声时,这个德国军团5万人被包围,请求投降,斯大林的批示是:不准投降,全部歼灭。

日本投降,东北的俘虏吃着白面馒头,睡着热炕,而看守这群日本畜生的中国军人只能吃野菜和麦皮,因为粮食不足,因为要感化他们,要体现我们的宽宏大量和国际精神。

抗美援朝,美国俘虏在东北一样享受了安宁和温饱,而被联军俘虏的中朝军人,要么“思想教育”,迫使变节,要么强行遣返到台湾等地。而对不屈服的战俘实施罚爬、罚跪、吊打、往肛门里灌辣椒水、将其扒光衣服塞进装有玻璃渣的汽油桶等残酷刑罚。被折磨致死的有一半以上。

南京死了30万人,除了是鬼子太残暴,还有就是国人太聪明。要知道去杀30万只猪或狗,一不小心还会弄个工伤事故、感染死亡什么的,难道30万南京人真的是 猪狗不如?一个台湾老兵、南京大屠杀的幸存者回忆那段历史时写道:我们可能永远不懂5个日本鬼子就可以押着2000人去屠杀!2000人,像猪一样任凭5 个人屠杀,多么可怕的事情啊!

虽然那5个日本兵有枪,也有刀,但是那2000人并没有被捆着,完全可以动手反抗。可是他们没有,据某个幸存者口述,他曾经怂恿其他人一起冲上去,可惜回应 他的除了沉默,还是沉默。因为大家都是聪明人,他们明白虽然2000人肯拼命肯定能赢,但是第一个冲上去的肯定会死,所以他们聪明地独善其身,把希望寄托 在有其他人第一个冲上去。

可惜的是,大家都是聪明人,没有蠢材,所以他们就只能像猪一样任凭屠杀。虽然每一个人都是聪明人,但是聚在一起却只是一群聪明的猪而已!

普京说:原不原谅恐怖分子是上帝的事,我的任务是送他们见上帝!云南昆明的暴行发生后,网上到处都是逃生技巧,自救举措。有文章教你第一诀窍是“不能激怒歹徒”!有人在教维语的“朋友,住手,自己人”……向暴徒乞求,和暴徒称朋道友,不可耻吗?

我在想,这个社会是怎么了?这个国家是怎么了?难道没有人再崇尚英雄主义了?媒体也不再支持挺身而出了?

先不说当晚昆明火车站有多少人,当我看到新闻上说一家餐馆里面躲了200多人的时候我想哭又想笑!10几个暴徒而已!拿的只是刀不是枪!只需要30个人操起桌椅冲出去!几把砍刀就可以让100多号人倒在血泊里?

现在已经击毙的,加上抓了的,一共不过8个人,还有2个女的,没有枪,只有长刀,居然砍死29个,砍伤130个?他们还当场跑了5个?难道所有的人第一意识都是逃命?难道没有人站出来跟他们搏斗?

有媒体提到,一个饭店老板娘救了200多人,讲到所有躲进小饭店的男人都不知所措。我想问,躲在女人庇护下发懵的男人们,不感到到悲哀吗?

这一次是暴徒,如果是侵略者,是不是又要上演几个日本兵就可以屠杀一个村子的事情?

我觉得,我们的教育需要反思,我们的媒体需要反思,所有媒体除了对恐怖分子的谴责就是对逝者的祈福,为什么不反思?我们的男人的血性都去哪儿了?最好的防守 是进攻,以暴制暴!他的目标是砍死你,你跑是跑不掉的!你跑了,被砍死的肯定是跑不动的老弱病残!如果遇到这种事情,每个人都反抗呢?每个男人都拼死反抗 呢?他们还敢几个人就搞个恐怖袭击?

“天佑昆明”、“昆明挺住”了,这和老天有半毛钱关系嗎?整个民族都挺不住,昆明挺住有啥用!这证明了这么多年来我们的教育是失败的。什麼看見穿黑色衣服的就要躲避,这是小孩的事。

凡事躲闪、退让的结果就是亡国灭种!這樣下去,几个日本鬼子扛着几把破枪统治一个村庄的事情今后还会重演!所以,碰上就要干TM的!!!

希望男人们看到这篇文章转起来!支持自己的男人遇到这种事情去战斗的女人也转起来!只有这样,才能对恐怖分子产生震慑!让他们有所顾及,不敢那么放肆。

男人普京说:原不原谅恐怖分子是上帝的事,我的任务是送他们见上帝!而美国人评价赵本山令中国人无地自容。

一位美国律师朋友说:赵本山的纽约演出很无聊、下流。一是讽刺残疾人,二是讽刺肥胖者,三是讽刺精神病患,把自己的欢乐建立在别人的痛苦之上,这种人很无耻。

美国脱口秀主持人个个伶牙俐齿,但是借一百个胆子,他们也不敢嘲笑残疾人、肥胖者。他们嘲笑的主要对象就是总统和明星,即有权有势者。

可能中美文化不同,赵本山对美国人忽悠很不成功,美国人崇尚人人平等哪怕是残疾人,他们对模仿残疾人并以残疾人为笑料表现出极大恶心。

美国朋友又问:为什么赵本山可以买得起私人飞机,而钱学森、竺可桢和袁隆平这样的科学家却买不起?这叫什么问题?

我一时语塞,无言以对。只好说:我国的科学家、哲学家、作家和中医学家都一心忙事业、学雷锋,没工夫赚钱。不但钱学森、竺可桢和袁隆平买不起飞机,就连中国 古代的墨子、张衡、张仲景、祖冲之、孙思邈、毕升、李时珍和近代的冯友兰、鲁迅都买不起。孔子那么伟大,有时连吃饭都成问题。

我的解释不着边际、苍白无力。美国朋友似乎明白了,边点头边说:原来在中国科学不值钱,哲学不值钱,文学不值钱,中医不值钱。

我很奇怪,科学解决人类生存问题,哲学和文学解决人类思想问题,中医解决人类健康问题,怎么就享受不了万人追捧红得发紫的场面和待遇?为什么明星、歌星、影星下三乱却那么值钱出场费那么高?如果讲贡献袁隆平钱学森没有明星大?出场费又在哪里呢?

美国朋友不顾我的感受,仍然趾高气昂:如果一个民族把演艺界明星捧得比天还高,那么它是不堪一击的。记得你们中国有句诗吧?“暖风熏得游人醉,只把杭州当汴 州”!一个连科学家、哲学家、作家和自己的中医事业、文化事业都不重视的国家。即使航母再多,兵力再强,也形同虚设,不堪一击!

我被美国朋友好好上了一课,也如同被抽了一记耳光,但不是抽在脸上,而是在心上,是抽在中国人心里。

日本松下集团高管松下幸之助说过,不管我们如何讨好韩国人,他们也不会购买日本的产品;也不管我们如何鄙视中国人,他们都会购买我们的产品,---两者性格不同。可谓一针见血!

温尔文雅如果没有血性,那就是病猫,就是东亚病夫----这个病在心里,在每一个中国人的心里!


Dear Sir / Madam,


The Dragon Foundation is pleased to announce the Dragon 100 (龍匯100) 2014. It will take place from 11-18 October 2014 in Hong Kong and Taiwan, focusing on the theme of “Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation”. We would like to invite you to nominate participants who are outstanding potential Chinese leaders aged 18-35 with demonstrated leadership skills, an excellent academic record, talent in non-academic areas and a commitment to serve the community. The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2014.


The annual Dragon 100 Young Chinese Leaders Forum was initiated by the Dragon Foundation in 2002. Since then it has brought together 100 youth leaders of Chinese origin from around the world every year. Intended as a platform for sharing views and generating synergy, it provides stimulus for innovation, enthusiasm and commitment.


Entrepreneurship is all about innovation and creativity, which are major characteristics of young people. It is also a way to generate and promote economic growth. Thus entrepreneurship can be considered both a way of thought and of behaviour, in that it not only requires imagination and passion, but also specific traditional functions such as marketing and finance. The Dragon 100 – 2014 Programme serves as a platform for young entrepreneurs, both established, as well as the up-and-coming, to sit down and openly discuss the challenges and opportunities that face those seeking this particular pathway.


Programme factsheet and nomination form are enclosed, should you have further queries or require any more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Secretariat of The Dragon Foundation, by telephone: (852) 2811-2779, by fax: (852) 2811-2669 or by e-mail: info@dragonfoundation.net Further information may also be obtained at our website www.dragonfoundation.net


We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Dear Prime Minister Abe,

Oliver Stone’s Advice to Japan: Apologize

By Mitsuru Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

U.S. film director Oliver Stone speaks before press in Tokyo on August 12.

Film director Oliver Stone, who is no stranger to controversy, turned from his sharp attacks on the U.S. for the atomic bombings of Japan to criticize his hosts over their attitude to China and other Asian neighbors.

In a speech to foreign correspondents in Tokyo, Mr. Stone said that Japan needs to more completely apologize for its wartime acts, and said it should also resist a shift to relying on military might to deal with security challenges posed by its neighbors such as China and North Korea.

Japan’s leaders have expressed “deep remorse” over the physical damage and psychological pain the country has inflicted on other Asian countries, but repeated visits by cabinet ministers to a controversial war shrine in Tokyo and growing talk of revising the nation’s peace constitution have made other countries skeptical about the intention of these remarks.

He said that if Japan came out with a more forthright apology “that would make front-page headlines everywhere in the world.”

He added that Japan, which is locked in a territorial dispute with China over a small group of islands, should look more broadly at ties between the two countries.

“Don’t look at China as your enemy. Start seeing it differently. Start by apologizing to China for what you did in China and all the people you killed there,” Mr. Stone said. “Japan’s interest in the long-term could very much lie with China.”

Mr. Stone described Japan’s face-off with China over disputed territories in the East China Sea as like “some kid who goes out there and picks fights and then has got his big brother behind him to go clean up after him,” referring to the United States’ security obligations to Japan.

He argued that Japan should show leadership in resolving conflicts in a peaceful manner. “We want to see Japan playing a leading role in making this a more peaceful world by resolving the conflicts in the Pacific in a way that shows the vision of Japan,” he said. “Japan has a peace constitution and a commitment to nuclear non-resolution.”

Mr. Stone’s view is formed by his skepticism of power and his belief in political checks and balances. He went as far as to praise China for not handing over American national security leaker Edward Snowden to the United States. “I’m glad that China didn’t arrest him. At least China had the guts to stand up (to the United States) that way.”

The famous director is in Japan to promote his documentary series, “The Untold History of the United States,” which presents an alternative interpretation of the country’s history in the 20th century, challenging the narrative of America as an “underdog.” The series will be aired by Japan’s national broadcaster NHK.

The documentary includes discussion of the two atomic bombings. Peter Kuznick, professor of history at American University, who worked with Stone in the production of the documentary, said it was “a learning experience for both of us” to meet with the victims of the bombing, as well as historians and journalists in Japan. The documentary contends that the long-held assertions that the bombings were necessary to end the war are untrue and that other factors, such as the Soviet Union’s entry into the war against Japan was a strong factor in the country’s surrender.

“The more we see and the more we learn, the more troubling it is for us and the more we realize how important Japan’s coming to grips with its past is for Japan, but also for the United States and for the rest of the world. Japan and the United States are linked together in this web of deceit in which we both collaborate to tell lies about all of our history,” he said.
