Find the difference .... by Dario   I would like to tell you what happened Thursday, March 27th, 2014 here in Hong Kong: I was rather sceptical if I should spread this fact that actually happened or avoid it altogether....in the end I decided to make it public... Around 7:30 am one morning, I was taking my daughter to school and the moment I was outside of the garage of our building, I was rammed into by another car: a woman from our same floor and same building, was the driver... We both got out of our cars and after an...

Plus, no eating watermelons in dormitories....no black stockings (nylons!) allowed for women teachers. Pupils are prohibited from maintaining "very close relationships", including same-sex friends. Rule breakers could fac...

Noise .....   I must admit that at the time being, I am rather serene....from within. I take life in a different way and rarely make "a mountain out of a molehill" .... I have family and friends and a strong foundation around me ..... Everything else, everything outside of who you really care about or who you really connect to, people's perceptions, is just noise ..... You can't pay attention to the noise or live your life by gossip, it will eventually drive you crazy .....   HP   &nb...

Michael, why, oh why ....?   We are talking two legends here .... I had never seen this video, but one evening I was left tongued-tied. You must know that one of the twins' nightly rituals before going to bed, is to read a few books, ("Pete the Cat", "The Giving Tree" and anything by Dr. Seuss) and to watch their favourite Michael Jackson video, "Smooth Criminal" (yes, all 10 minutes and 38 seconds!!). Last night we came across "You Rock My World" where the cast is incredible. You can see Billy Drago, the assassin...

3-year old with 160 IQ   Phoenix, Arizona USA   She's not even in kindergarten yet, but has become the youngest member of the prestigious Arizona chapter of Mensa. Yes, Alexis Martin, of Queen Creek, is a 3 year old with an IQ of 160!! Now just thinking of this, let alone writing about it, makes me reflect. Is this constructive to send her away to a "Genius" school? Are they denying her right to attend a normal nursery school and playing with children of her own age? A simple response is ..... Alexis r...

Chinese children's eyesight ....   Wuhan, Hubei Province   This Primary school has given a new meaning to the phrase "raise the bar". The institution has literally put these metal bars on all students' desks. Headmaster, Zhang Jianming of Zhang Lin Elementary School said that the bars were installed by the City Teen Anti-Myopia Office. It may not be immediately apparent what the purpose of them is. But teachers have said that they will prevent children "from damaging their eyes" by ensuring that they hold their bo...

Viva La Libertà ....   Rarely do I get intrigued as I did last night after watching "Viva La Libertà" with an extraordinary Toni Servillo. This movie is "a class act", and I mean excellent. I knew absolutely nothing regarding the story and I must let you know that I almost ALWAYS read the spoiler (and the spoiler ending!!) to know what I am getting into and, what to expect .... After watching the "reality" movie, a pathetic and sad view of Rome, Italy in "La Grande Bellezza", which, by the way, made m...
