Logic Pro X Progress

I’ve been pondering around the software for around a week now, try to produce my very first song.

Although I had experiences with DAW before, but Logic Pro X seems to be very beginner-friendly and functions are intuitive.

Still, have problems actually making a song.

I don’t quite understand all of those terminologies used in those tutorial videos, I can half understand them, just don’t know how to execute. ...READ MORE

To Make a Friend

Break Down the Person into an Individual

The art of making a friend means to know a person.

To break down the process of making a friend, it is the mere process of breaking down person to an individual.

Like many other people among us, people don’t seem to have characteristics. They are statistics, numbers, stereotypes, that don’t matter.

You can discover your friends through a crowd instantly is because your friends stand out from others. They are not faceless. They are somebody. ...READ MORE

Medicine in China and the U.S.: Observations from an American Medical Student – Review Version

Inspired by a post from Stephen Eigles, Medicine in China and the U.S.: Observations from an American Medical Student, I come to this post about Chinese medical system.

The post was written in 1998, Spring, 2 decades ago. However, the insights in this post are still pretty relevant to this day.

Some, mispractices, have been eradicated from China for quite some time now, but the rather baffling and ominous wrongdoings are still very persistent to this day. ...READ MORE

Cancer

Cancer is more of a mutation to the body. Most cancers relate to patients’ DNA structures.

And unlike external invasion, cancer is self-procured.

Diseases can be divided into two main categories, external pathogens or auto-diseases.

The pathology of cancer is the unlimited and uncontrollable cell division of a certain type of cells. ...READ MORE

Farmer and Snake

In Traditional Chinese parables, there is a story about a farmer and a snake:

Long time ago, in a frosting winter, an old man was pacing slowly on frozen water for home.

Some time later, he saw a strange stick lying on the ground. Despite the heavy snow splashing into his face, he went forth and found out the strange twisted stick was not a stick at all, but a frozen snake.

The farmer braced the snake into his chest, and kept on heading his way home. ...READ MORE

Independence, Patriarchy and Society

Patriarchy stems from male independence, an indivisible relationship.

In society, what does independence consist of?

  • Physical independence: Physical independence is sheer force, sheer physical power. The stronger your body is, the more power you can amass in order to assert rules over others.
  • Wealth independence: Wealth independence is free from poverty, free from lack of materials. Or very much a resource gatherer. The resources boost your other independences.
  • Love independence: Be able to stand on your toes and free to choose partners. One is able to have choices, and in no lack of love from others. One is cherished, with a stable/level mind.
  • Socioeconomic independence: A modern term combined with previous two independences, plus a social repute. Free from opinions, free from bad words, free from bad/lower social rungs that linger at higher social rungs.
  • Wisdom independence: Being agile in mind fields, one is able to solve problems. And scale himself at a vantage point in order to outmaneuver others.

One shall keep himself safe from harm. One shall feed himself enough to survive. One shall have partners yet not clinging on them. One shall be respectable. One shall have set of skills to outmaneuver others.

All these things can be achieved by men, and men alone. Women certainly have a hard time on achieving all these independences all by “herselves”. ...READ MORE

Individuality and Impression, How We Remember People

We remember people by multiple signs and signals.

To know someone, it is not only from the person’s apperance, but also many other elements that relate to this very individual. This is what we called, individuality.

Though most of the time someone remembers a person by his/her face, the overall appearance.

However, when you pick up the phone, the voice from the other side let you know instantly who this person is if the caller is one of your friends. ...READ MORE
