傍晚的這個時候,遊客比較少,我也才有機會好好享受夕陽的餘暉。

Low Carbohydrate, High Fat (LCHF) 目前心得

開始這個飲食方式之前,我的腰圍是42吋的褲子有點緊。經過將近一個月的今天,38吋的褲子已經有點鬆了。

Low Carbohydrate是主要的重點。只要碳水化合物的攝取量,壓低到合理的量,就已經有減肥的效果了。至於是不是需要高油脂,就看口味的偏好。高油脂的主要好處在於增加持續的飽足感。

這段時間,為了依照LCHF的原則,要吃任何東西之前,我都會先試著去「估計」即將要吃下去的食物,包含多少份量的碳水化合物。如果能避開不吃,就避開;如果前一餐吃太多碳水化合物,後面的餐就減少。

我強調「估計」是因為不需要太準確,用常識判斷就夠了。例如米飯,麵食,馬鈴薯,汽水,奶茶,酒類等等,不需要精算,避開就對了。

我發現,我開始用心確認吃下去的食物的這個習慣,對於減重本身,也有間接的幫助。以往沒有用大腦去思考,吃下眼前這食物的後果,經常就會在休閒時間,喝下過多的含糖飲料。

我也發現我吃「起司」不會腹瀉,同時起司完全是LCHF,因此,任何時間覺得肚子餓,但是不能吃碳水化合物的時候,起司是很適合我的代餐。

走路也能遇到三寶?

我剛才正要邁步登上捷運車廂的時候,一位年紀比我年長不少的「阿伯」,不知為何,走路一直盯著他的左方看,但是身體卻是往我這裡衝來。

一般這種情境,我乾脆先站著不動,確認對方要往哪裡走,我再往另一邊閃開。

事實上,我站在門口兩側的等待區。如果是我自己的習慣,我都是直直地往前出門下車,我也怕我會撞到兩側準備上車的乘客。

但是,這位阿伯的速度完全沒有放慢,眼睛和臉還是朝他左方看,瞬間距離越來越近,就要撞上我了。

這時候我出聲了,我「喂」一聲。沒想到,接下來發生的事情,就完全超出我所能理解的範圍了。

這位阿伯聽到我的聲音,頭轉過來看著我,但是,速度和表情,還是完全沒有想要慢下來的意思,繼續往我這裡往前走。

當然,沒有任何時間讓我去理解原因,這時候我當然是閃開。於是,沒有發生任何碰撞。

我安全登上車廂以後,回頭看著他,他老人家依舊是用相同的速度,相同的方向,戴著小帽,下巴抬高高,好像什麼事都沒有發生過,繼續往前走。

看著他瀟灑地遠去,我也只能默默的祝福他,下次「撞到」的時候,千萬可別受重傷了!

JFK機場的日出

【2015/5/2】 紐約JFK機場剛好看到日出.。


這裡是四號航站 (達美航空)。大約是快六點的清晨。我還沒有五點就在候機區等七點的飛機了。

I think he is correct.

Chariots of Fire (instrumental), Plagiarism_case

Chariots of Fire (instrumental), Plagiarism_case
Vangelis was accused of plagiarising "Chariots of Fire" from a piece by fellow Greek composer Stavros Logaridis called "City of Violets". Vangelis won in court by (a) persuading the judge that he had had no opportunity to hear Logaridis's piece before he composed "Chariots of Fire"; and (b) demonstrating to the judge's satisfaction that the key musical sequence described as “the turn” (which consisted of the four notes F-G-A-G), the only sequence where the judge noted a clear similarity between the two compositions, was already common in music, and had previously been used by Vangelis in a piece "Wake Up” that predated "City of Violets."
Are these two music similar enough so one of them should be copying the "idea" from the other one? Let me put them together and compare for yourselves.

Movie: The Social Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I am also inspired by this movie.

The Social Network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Impact
Since its release, The Social Network has been cited as inspiring involvement in start-ups and social media. Bob Lefsetz has stated that: “[w]atching this movie makes you want to run from the theatre, grab your laptop and build your own empire,”noting that The Social Network has helped fuel an emerging perception that “techies have become the new rock stars.”This has led Dave Knox to comment that: “[f]ifteen years from now we might just look back and realize this movie inspired our next great generation of entrepreneurs.”After seeing the movie, Zuckerberg was quoted as saying he is "interested to see what effect The Social Network has on entrepreneurship", noting that he gets "lots of messages from people who claim that they have been very much inspired... to start their own company." Saverin echoed these sentiments, stating that the film may inspire "countless others to create and take that leap to start a new business." In one such instance, the co-founders of Wall Street Magnate confirmed that they were inspired to create the fantasy trading community after watching The Social Network.

雞和狗都有關的成語

今天往 Fort Charlotte 跑步的時候,我忽然注意到,整個山頭都是 雞和狗的叫聲。一邊跑步,我一邊在想,跟雞和狗有關的成語,有哪些。

雞犬不寧
雞犬升天
雞飛狗跳
雞鳴狗盜

應該還有更多。

這幾個成語,就像是我跑步過程中所聽到的聲音一樣。

愛現

這才叫做真的 "愛現"!

我今天跑步回程的時候,我特別更改路徑,選最熱鬧的一條街道跑回來飯店。果然如我所預料,整條街上的人好多都在為我歡呼!其他的帥哥美女,則是用一種驚奇的眼神看著我!


Fw: Be Thou My Vision

我星期天路過一家教堂,聽到裡面的人在唱這一首歌,我這時候才知道,原來這也是一首聖歌,我以前只知道這是 三菱汽車 廣告的配樂。

https://youtu.be/UKByTfiHOFE
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
蕭煌奇有一首歌 "你是我的眼",靈感該不會是從這首歌找到的吧?!

Fw: Yemi Alade - Johnny

I never knew this music until I took a local van yesterday.

No two "experiences" are identical. I'm back, Young Island

This time, I am alone. I tried to go back to Young Island by memories of last year.

Drop off the van at this gate.

The single trip fare of the van is 2 EC from Kingstown. Single trip time of the van without traffic jam is about 20 minutes.



The other side is the Young Island.





Go to this pier with "Private Jetty" sign, and wait for the small boat to get to Young Island. The boat is free of charge.



The boat is coming.




Finally, I reached Young Island again. Long time no see you!




Of course, I wanted to swim at this beach shore. That's why I did not take more photos at this moment.


A little friend accompanied me on the beach.





Quote: Get busy living or get busy dying.

ANDY: I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.




In fact, this quote is from this movie: "Shawshank Redemption".

愛台灣

"我想要表達的意思是:你如果是真的愛我們台灣,為什麼聽到哪裡出問題的時候會不爽?如果你真愛我們這塊土地 你也會想盡辦法 盡一己之力 幫忙解決問題而不是什麼都不做。"


因為我很愛台灣所以我才來分享這個小想法。偶爾會在別人的臉書上看到他們對台灣社會上的問題的想法、偶爾會看到有人會勇敢的說出他看到的問題因為希望可以解決 不過每次有人講出問題 總是會有一堆人攻擊他 例如:1_ 講出問題人:我們台灣的政客實...
