起跑线,接力赛

因为昨天上映的《狂暴巨兽》(Rampage)的评分太低,豆瓣 6.80 分,我觉得虽然是新片子,但评分太低不值得我花钱去看。我就把目光转移到了一部稍早的片子,《起跑线》(Hindi Medium),豆瓣评分 8.10 分(网友都在说为什么中国也有这些问题,但是中国拍不出这样的片子)。这部电影,讲述的是一对很有钱的印度商人夫妇(属于中层)挖空心思要把女儿送进最好的幼儿园(私立幼儿园),具体包括买学区房、行贿、走后门、伪造文件获取预留给贫困生的指标…… 男方生意人出身,没念过多少书但是有钱,不会说多少英语;女方受过教育,会说英语。全片笑点不下十个,这样一部揭露社会现实的电影还有这么多笑点,足以看出印度人的脑洞有多大。因为中国是公立一言堂,多数中国人可能不知道私立学校和公立学校的差距会那么大。如果对于美国的私校和公校有一定了解,就会觉得女主人公说女儿上公立就会去吸毒,并不是空穴来风。

一、《接力赛》

在译名方面,我觉得这部电影的中译名,译成《接力赛》更佳, 继续阅读 »

拜谒魏司坚(Vos)墓地

我是个 10 年的墓地爱好者。这次,我拜谒的是改革宗圣经神学之父魏司坚( Geerhardus Vos,1862—1949)的墓地。他埋葬的墓地虽然有名字,叫 Griffin Cemetery,在宾州的 Roaring Branch(搜索相关信息的时候要加上 PA,或者其他比较 distinctive 的信息才能搜到),但是这个墓地太偏僻,所在的地方也太小(估计连个村子都够不上),Wikipedia 的介绍只有一句话:“Roaring Branch is an unincorporated community in Tioga and Lycoming Counties in Pennsylvania.” 不管是 Google map 还是 Waze 都无法像其他的地名那样,输入了墓地名字之后一下子就能找到是在哪里。我输入了各种地址都无法定位到,最后抱着试试看的心,用经纬度看看能不能定位到,找到路线, 41.568579, -76.948761,没想到 Waze 可以识别(我不用 Google map 导航)。 继续阅读 »

主页「寻根记」

最近看现有的主页不顺眼,要更改主页,那么,就要重新写一下主页这个文件的代码。我一向采用的方式都是用 WinScp 之类的软件(换了 Mac 之后用 FileZilla),登 FTP 。因为好久没有登录了…… 连 root 密码都忘了,后来在 Control Panel 重置一下(好在还记得去这里重置),才登上去。好在上次记忆了一些信息,要不然还要多花一些时间。

然后我就用便条把密码写下来给贴在墙上了,此外又在书桌的正前方贴了一张这样的便条:【密码都在墙上贴着】

好长时间没有操作的结果就是,我不知道主页文件在哪里……连它的格式也不太清晰,也不知道它叫什么。FTP 里面有好多文件夹,找的焦头烂额。它应该叫 index ,但是好几个 index ,在我尚存的记忆里面,应该是 html 格式,要不然怎么写呢,但是碰到的好几个都是 php 的,打开来看都不是。过了不知道有多少分钟,终于碰到一个 html 文件,打开之后就是这个。

在这里备注一下,根目录是 home/wwwroot ,以后再也不用担心忘记了。

成功解决一个棘手问题:500 Internal Server Error

不知道具体是在多少天前,按照更新提醒,我迷迷糊糊地更新一个插件,更新完,网页也没关,就去睡觉了…… 然后也不知道具体是在多少天前,我又要打开我心爱的《老人与海》,然后就发现打不开了。提示 500 Internal Server Error ,ocweng.com cannot handle the request 之类的。然后我以为又是 VPS 需要 reboot 了?因为现在用的内存比较大,所以不会出现流量过多导致死机的问题,所以我半信半疑地去 reboot 了一下,结果还是打不开。这一打不开,连阴谋论都出来了,是不是被黑了?

【第一关】问题出在哪里:之后我就开始研究怎么处理这个 500 Internal Server Error 。因为 ocweng.com 可以打开,ocweng.com/en 也可以打开,所以问题只能是出于 ocweng.com/zh 网上有个网友说是 theme 或者 plugin 出了问题,我一想前几天自己正好更新了一个神马东西,是不是因为这个出的事情?

【第二关】如何解决问题:有个解决方法是通过 FTP/SFTP 来连接到我的 server ,然后通过一系列步骤(具体在下面说)解决问题。 继续阅读 »

Ruling Biblically

          In May 2014, I had the opportunity to visit the largest Franciscan church in the world—Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence, Italy, and I saw the tomb of Niccolo Machiavelli (1469–1527), and those of Michelangelo, Galileo and Rossini as well, in this 722-year-old Gothic cathedral . Machiavelli is not an unfamiliar person to most of us. He was an Italian historian, writer, and especially known to us for his role as a politician in the Republic of Florence during the Renaissance. The Italian politician, in his political article “Be Powerful,” 继续阅读 »

【AP 101】护教学导论:Keller Discussion Response

课程:【AP 101】Introduction to Apologetics 护教学导论
教授:Dr. William Edgar
学期:2016 Fall
成绩:Good

Keller Discussion Response I

        In part I, Tim Keller discusses some objections to the truth of Christianity, saying that the truth of Christianity is reasonable and existential. He says that Christian truth is reasonable because he thinks Christian argument and truth is overall strong, and that Christian truth is existential which because of this strong experience of God’s existence. In my opinion, even though Christian truth can be supported by abundant external evidence and we Christians can experience the existence of God, Christian truth is only based on the internal evidence which is rooted in Scripture, the word of the triune God. In addition, the existence of God can only be proved by God himself. 继续阅读 »

教授:Dr. William Edgar
学期:2016 Fall
成绩:Thoughtful

Chang Lecture Response I

         In the lecture, Joanny Chang focuses on the topic of Confucian ethics, and she discusses the development of Confucianism in ancient China chronologically. I will demonstrate that strictly speaking, Confucianism is not a religion, and then I will critique the worldview of Confucianists. To begin with, as for me, even though the system of Confucianism seems religious (and superficially speaking of Confucianism, it even has some notions in common with Christianity, such as the notion and the consciousness of heaven as believed by kings of the Zhou dynasty), 继续阅读 »

【ST 101】神学导论:Digest 3

课程:【ST 101】Prolegomena 神学导论
教授:Dr. David Garner
学期:2016 Fall
成绩:99% (A)

E. J. Young, Thy Word is Truth (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1957), Chapters 3, 5 (pp. 65–82, 113–138)
           In chapter 3, Young demonstrates that the Bible is also written by human authors. At the very beginning, Young refutes the false understanding of the doctrine of inspiration. Then, Young says that according to the Bible, the human authors are the instruments of God who speaks his word through the authors. Then, he states, human authors are both holy men and sinful men, and according to the New Testament, the authors are real men. However, Young points out that God also prepares the human authors in their daily lives so that they can complete the writing tasks, and that this is the providential work of God. 继续阅读 »

Comparison and Contrast on Canon

        When it comes to the topic of canon, the perspective of the Kruger passage from “Canon Revisited”1 is the opposite of that of the McDonald passage2 

        Kruger’s reasons are to support the thesis that the authority of the canon only depends on the canon itself. First, Kruger refutes the claim that the canon is determined by the community. As Kruger has mentioned, human involvement does not eliminate the possibility that God acts (internal evidence) in the development of the canon, and the development of the canon is not based on the human construction, but only based on the ultimate authority of 继续阅读 »
