你在哪裡……
我在你心裡

 今天到處都有萬聖節的party,我們三個女人決定呆在家裡喝酒聊天開個女巫的party。
ㄏㄏ  自從離開student village,好久沒有像這樣好好聊天了 我們喝了三瓶酒(其實是小瓶的)都沒有醉
為了看到遠處的煙火 我們關著燈在房間聊天
能夠有這樣的機緣我覺得很棒
在這個異鄉的國土上,聚集了來自世界各國的人能有一兩個很要好的朋友
互相幫助跟陪伴對我來說很有助益,因為我不愛出去花錢,自然少了很多機會 認識更多新朋友
但是他們總是會在節慶上或是生日的時候聚在一起
分擔心事 幫忙解決煩心 一起助興慶祝等等
今天有感而發的說
以前在台灣看到什麼想吃的想要的都可以輕易得到或吃到,因為經濟能力許可並且有充分的自由
但是現在的身分是出國留學並且是用自己的未來積蓄
看到想吃的魚 或是到新餐廳去吃各國料理 買喜歡的衣服或鞋子  卻都成了一種苛求
對於要出國留學的人真的要想清楚
這真的不是件簡單的事情,不是只有課業要adapt,還有生活瑣事及更多不足為外人道的情形更是
不過要不是當初的一股衝動,也不會有今天上這塊夢想國土的機會
對於一個從來沒有出過國的我來說,呆在國外的時間可不比一年出國多次的人少呢

Ultra-violet (UV) light therapy could be used to destroy tumours, reported three newspapers (30 October, 2007). The articles are based on a laboratory study involving mice engineered to have ovarian cancer. These findings cannot be applied to people at present.
拜科技之賜,我們可以不斷的朝健康的未來邁進,科學家利用被患有卵巢癌的實驗鼠來做的研究,竟然可以縮小並且消除腫瘤細胞,要是可以成功的問是這項新發現,將會造福更多女性以及其家庭。

Bicycles chained in the street in Peterborough
The team encouraged Peterborough motorists to cycle

Major aime at cutting carbon emissions

A nationwide advice: switching to greener forms of travel could help break Britain's dependency on the car.
The idea is that many people are receptive to suggestions they could travel more greenly but simply don't know how.

Travel smart

Practical advice: reams of maps( new cycle map), timetables.
Of course simply stopping people from travelling as much would have the same effect but government acknowledges that this could damage the economy. A failur to tackle climate change itself could have economic consequences.
A new high speed rail line from London at least as far as Birmingham may be needed to improve crowded transport.

congestion charging

London to Glasgow Virgin Pendolino train
London to Glasgow trains are becoming increasingly crowded

Motorway widening is already going ahead. However, the priority must be to remove the bottlenecks from the network. Manchester is a front-runner to be the second congestion charging area in Britain after London.

The flu vaccination does not reduce hospital admissions among the elderly, reported four newspapers (24 October 2007). Some newspaper headlines overstate the results of a reliable study which found flu vaccination had no effect on whether over-65s with respiratory illness needed to be hospitalised.
話雖這麼說,流感疫苗無法降低老人住院率或是呼吸系統問題而住院的個案數,但是流感疫苗確實讓很多老人跟小孩多了一層保護,時序漸漸進入秋冬寒冷之際,馬偕總是會為醫護人員施打流感疫苗,還記得我總是那個逃兵之一,原因無他: 怕痛阿,但是為了健康的身體受一點痛也是應該的,記得提醒身邊的人去打疫苗囉。

Technology has made such dramatic advances in the past decade that by the year 2050 who knows what changes will have taken place. It is quite likely that by 2050 we will have used up most of the earth’s natural resources and so we will be relying on wind power and hydropower for our energy needs. As a result of this shortage of energy, it is quite probable that scientists will have found a way for us to live outside the earth. By the next century it’s possible that people will be living in cities on the Moon or perhaps in cities on the seabed. It is to be hoped that scientists will have discovered cures for fatal diseases such as Aids and due to the advancement of genetic engineering, hereditary diseases passed down from generation to generation will no longer exist
It is quite possible that by 2050 life expectancy will have increased to 100 and that we will be able to enjoy a healthier existence than is now possible. Another area likely to have been further affected by technology in the year 2050 is education. In schools, computers will have replaced teachers and many students will stay at home to complete their education. We will see changes in the work-place too. The two main areas of employment will be the so-called creative and caring professions, and the disappearance of jobs in manufacturing will result in massive unemployment.

When you take a holiday with Activity Wales, you will have the time of your life. As soon as you arrive, you will feel as if you are in a different world. While you are staying with us, we will do our best to ensure that your holiday runs smoothly and you don’t get bored. Activity Wales has something to offer for all ages and tastes. If you want to play golf, ride, sail or fish, our staff will be happy to make the necessary arrangements, or if you simply want to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery we will be delighted to organize some guided walks. Before your holiday is over, you will have already planned your next visit.

 
British Airways is to install (formal arrange) mini-cameras in every part of their planes. They hope this will reduce the threat of terrorism and also deter passengers from behaving violently and causing trouble on the flights. If passengers become violent or abusive, due to too much alcohol for example, their behaviour will be monitored by cameras and then will be used in court if they are prosecuted.
BA is planning/plans to start the scheme next year. The first trial starts in January.
By the end of the year they will have installed cameras in 60% of their planes. They hope that anti-social behaviour in planes will have been cut dramatically by the end of the year.
Some passengers object to the plan. They feel it will invade their privacy and it could be miss-used if films fall into wrong hands. They plan to campaign against the scheme.

Nurses to decide on resuscitation
Resuscitation
TV medical dramas often give a rosy view of resuscitation
Experienced nurses should have the authority to decide if patients should be resuscitated, according to new guidelines to health professionals.

Until now only consultants and GPs were allowed to decide on resuscitation.

The guidelines were issued by the British Medical Association (BMA), the Royal College of Nursing and the Resuscitation Council.

The Patients Association welcomed the move, saying nurses were better placed than doctors to know patients' wishes.

Death with dignity

The Resuscitation Council said resuscitation may only work in 5% of cases, and that the guidelines aim to avoid "undignified and unnecessary" resuscitation of patients who would not benefit from it.

The guidelines recommend that only "suitably experienced" nurses should be able to make the judgement.

The Resuscitation Council said that through television dramas people had been led to believe the resuscitation procedure is both more effective and more pleasant than it is in reality.

Sometimes it is a prolonged and traumatic procedure and is not always successful
Dr David Pitcher

"The survival rate may be as low as 5% in certain individuals. The outcomes are extremely variable but they are nothing like what we see on TV.

A Patients Association spokesman said: "Nurses have always been closer to patients who are severely ill than doctors.

"They will know more about the personality of the patient and their attitude towards death during a severe illness."

Nick Moore, of Dignity in Dying, which campaigns for greater patient choice at the end of life, called the changes "common sense".

"Unnecessarily resuscitating a patient in the last weeks of their life can often prolong suffering," he said in a statement.

Inevitable

However, in the case of someone being brought to hospital from the street, a clinical judgment would still have to be made without that information.

The Patients Association spokesman said: "End of life is inevitable for all of us. We need to be reassured that we can reach it and die with dignity in as much comfort as possible with the respectful care of qualified health professionals."

看到這則新聞很有感覺ㄟ
不知道你們有沒有
想到以前在病房為小寶們CPR時
只有為釗或一些資深的學姊最了解小朋友跟家屬
最能為他們出聲 決定繼續壓或不壓
護理人員才是最接近病人的
才是真正知道什麼是他們要的 在他們無法為自己出聲的時候 最能代表他們的就是(資深)護理人員
電視節目帶給一般民眾的急救觀念
大多是粉紅的有救的可回復出院的
但是事實上還有很大的灰色地帶
例如年事已高的久病病人 急救只是帶來更長久的痛苦的病人等等
應該要有個大眾教育的機會
或是在醫院體系中跟即將面臨的家屬作一個全盤的說明
英國已經頒布新法了
不知何時台灣也可以呢
以病人為中心的照護何時能落實

把時鐘、手錶、手機、還有電腦往後調一個小時
發現剛剛過去的8點現在又到了8點鐘  感覺好奇妙很特別
在腦海裡所知道的  每個人一天都只有24小時沒有人可以例外
怎麼現在來到這裡竟然硬生生就是要多給你一個小時
剛剛在Jessica房間裡發生的事情難道要再倒轉一次嗎(我可不希望)
開心的人可以再一次享受愉快  那難過的人呢(凍結在這重複的一個小時裡吧)
剛剛過去的8點現在又到了8點鐘  感覺很幸運也很好玩
我又多賺到一個小時  像是一小時的bonus
就當作額外的獎金一樣的開心的度過這個小時吧

Henry the eighth, King of England, was a tall and handsome young man, who liked horse riding, tennis, writing and playing music. He wrote many beautiful songs and had a wonderful singing voice.
When he was older, he became very fat. He had a very bad leg, and often couldn't walk. And when his leg hurt, he was always angry.
He married six times because he wanted a son to be king after him. His one son, Edward VI, died just before he was sixteen.
Henry VIII is famous in England's history because he broke with the Pope and the Catholic Church, and started the Church of England.
In 1547 he became very ill and died. His three chrldren, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth, all became King and Queen after him. None of them had any children so Henry's family came to an end.
Elizabeth was Quenn of England for forty-five years. This was the time of Shakedpeare and Sir Walter Raleigh. Elizabeth was a great Queen, but she never married, and had no children. When she died, a Scottish King became King of England.

Katherine of Aragon
:" I wanted to so much to give you a son, but God's plan for us was different, and we cannot change that."
Anne Boleyn was very clever, " During the last few weeks my life has been hard, I wanted you to take me away from this terrible prison. I ask one last thing. Please be kind to our daughter Elizabeth."
That was very quick! King married Jane Seymour just ten days after Anne's death. " I was very much in love with you. I have given you a son, and I can die happy, knowing that Edward will be king after you."
Anne of Cleves married Henry because King wanted to please the Germans.
When Katherine Howard married Henry just in her eighteen, and soon she died in her twenty.
Catherine Parr " I was thirty-one years old and Henry didn't really want a wife, he wanted a friend, and a nurse, and a mother for his three children."

晚上去了粵式餐廳 台灣人的聚餐
Alpha有心邀請所有台灣人聚餐
我不知道其他人是否跟我一樣的想法
去之前覺得不了解意義何在 反正是台灣人就該要去所以就去了
但是到了之後 有感覺到Titan Alpha Hotelu在桌間走動 並且邀請大家到各桌去聊天自我介紹
我也才明白這是各大家交流的好機會
(可是我心裡存著看看大家在做些什麼的心態)

這些流鶯(留英)多年的
有些人打扮粉漂亮 穿扮很時尚
有些人很內斂 說話有深度 感覺深藏不漏
有些人口才一流 豐富話題
因為分了三桌有些人我沒有積極去認識
但是同桌有一位從國中就在英國唸書的小留學生
現在念到研究所
很不同 穿扮講究 動作也講究(看他手扶杯底的姿勢絕非一般人所為)
談吐上也很不一樣 看的出來受到中英文化的衝擊下的小男孩的模樣
而我們這些剛剛來到英國的流鶯們
顯得較不開放 話題幾乎是兜著學校轉
但是也有人為著更多的目的而來的
對於申根的辦理遊遍歐洲更有興趣
我顯得插不上嘴

發現我的緊張跟放不開
對於課業的緊張 對於新環境的不開放

我只想將心思放在完成學業上面
對於其他的同學討論的哪間餐廳好吃 哪各國家簽証怎麼辦 等等事情只停留在聽聽就好
出了國尤其是到了英國 不把英國歐洲完遍似乎會對不起自己的心態下
又覺得自己沒有享受到流鶯的生活  不應該
但是我已經認定自己是有經濟限制的 不允許自己過度使用金錢
所以有關於享樂的事情 等畢了業再說吧

在求學與美好經驗中
求得一個最佳的平衡點
既能求得學位 也能求得美好的生活經驗才是上上策
希望所有來到這兒追求不平凡的生活的流鶯
都能夠享受最完美的難忘的經驗 x

佛洛伊德說夢見掉牙齒有五種心理狀態:
純粹象徵著牙齒有問題
象徵著人際關係出了問題
象徵著想減肥
象徵著心理上的退化和成長
原來堅固的信念可能動搖了

還有人說是不好的事情發生ㄟ
不知道有沒有分掉的是哪顆牙而有不同的解析阿??

Taiwan is a long narrow country. The population is concentrated in the north and south cities. Means of transport bring better quality of life between the cities. Transportation becomes more and more important. It makes life more convenient.
There are several methods of moving around Taiwan. Depending on the cost, one can take the areoplane which is the fastest and the most expensive way. Besides, train is another cheap and comfortable choice if you are not rushed. Next choice and chosen by many people is taking the long-distance-bus which has longer, flexible seats, and people no longer feel tired in seven hours' trip. Furthermore, if you want to travel fast but you are afraid of the height, now you can take the high-speed rail. From Taipei to Kaoshong takes you only 40 minutes and people never worry about the traffic jam.
In brief, transport plays an important role in our daily life. It makes life efficient.

Last year, Tom and Fiona decided to buy a house. They had been saving up for ages, and by the end of May they had put by enough for the deposit on a house. (background describing)They were living in a tiny flat at the time and Fiona insisted that she wanted a house with a big garden. They had been searching for only a few days when they found exactly what they were looking for - a two bedroomed house in nearly an acre of garden. Unfrtunately the owner was asking (expressing annoying)much more than they were willing to pay, and when they looked more closely at the interior, they saw that whoever had lived /had been living before, had made an absolute mess of the walls and floors. Still, Fiona liked the garden and the location so much that she managed to convince Tom that, despite the price, it was the perfect house for them.

Last summer some friends and I arranged to go camping. We had been looking forward to going for weeks when finally the date of departure arrived. We loaded the car with our luggage and set off  early in the morning. The weater was perfect, the sun was shinning bughtly and the wind was blowing gently(background describing). There was not a cloud in the sky! Shortly afterwards, while we were travelling along the motorway, we noticed that the car was making a strnge noise. Pete, who had been driving/was driving very fast, suddenly stopped the car. Everyone got up and went round to the back of the car. To our surprise the boot was wide open- whoever had loaded the luggage had not loaded it properly, and eveything had fallen out! 

When she was growing up Beatrix Potter was very fond of animals and had been always drawing pictures of her pet rabbit. She earned a living as an illustrator for several years before her dream of becoming an author came true. It was the result of a letter she had sent to a sick child decribing the adventures of four rabbits. She published it later as "The Tale of Peter Rabbit". It became an instant success and more tales followed. By the time Beatrix died. She had written over twenty-five tales and had achieved recognition as one of the greatest children's writer.

拜網路之賜,我們可以這們容易這麼快的知道對方的近況,知道你的工作很忙心理的壓力大過身體的,也很替你擔心。
這群可愛的阿姨們,你們那麼辛苦的工作為了救回每一個小小生命,不但身體受苦,心靈也跟著承受著壓力: 每個小生命捧在手掌心,輕如羽翼,卻重過一切。那麼積極的搶救微弱的呼吸,卻犧牲了自己的基本需求吃飯與休息。我知道是什麼支撐著你們這麼做,因為我們知道他們是勇敢的小小勇士,費盡千辛萬苦努力活下去的小勇士,只是需要一點點的幫助和呵護,這點小忙無論如何我們都給的起,也願意付出一切給他們更多的幫助和無盡的呵護。但是我們也是有限的,在有限的能力之內我們盡力而為阿!
我知道最近病房忙壞了大家,在這裡精神上支持你們,願  神保守病房裡的一切。

In the beginning....
I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting. " What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to beieve Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives.  It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night.
And then, there's another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other.
But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space!
 Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas', the worst Birthday's, New Years Eve's brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life.
 All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual symptoms.
 


Amanda: Sex makes everything more complicated. Even not having it,  because the not having it... makes it complicated.
Graham: That's why it's better to have it... some say.


Iris, if you were a melody... I used only the good notes.

Amanda: So now I'm just gonna kiss you for the millionth time and say 'Be seeing you'.
