起跑線,接力賽

因為昨天上映的《狂暴巨獸》(Rampage)的評分太低,豆瓣 6.80 分,我覺得雖然是新片子,但評分太低不值得我花錢去看。我就把目光轉移到了一部稍早的片子,《起跑線》(Hindi Medium),豆瓣評分 8.10 分(網友都在說為什麼中國也有這些問題,但是中國拍不出這樣的片子)。這部電影,講述的是一對很有錢的印度商人夫婦(屬於中層)挖空心思要把女兒送進最好的幼兒園(私立幼兒園),具體包括買學區房、行賄、走後門、偽造文件獲取預留給貧困生的指標…… 男方生意人出身,沒念過多少書但是有錢,不會說多少英語;女方受過教育,會說英語。全片笑點不下十個,這樣一部揭露社會現實的電影還有這麼多笑點,足以看出印度人的腦洞有多大。因為中國是公立一言堂,多數中國人可能不知道私立學校和公立學校的差距會那麼大。如果對於美國的私校和公校有一定了解,就會覺得女主人公說女兒上公立就會去吸毒,並不是空穴來風。

一、《接力賽》

在譯名方面,我覺得這部電影的中譯名,譯成《接力賽》更佳, 繼續閱讀 »

拜謁魏司堅(Vos)墓地

我是個 10 年的墓地愛好者。這次,我拜謁的是改革宗聖經神學之父魏司堅( Geerhardus Vos,1862—1949)的墓地。他埋葬的墓地雖然有名字,叫 Griffin Cemetery,在賓州的 Roaring Branch(搜索相關信息的時候要加上 PA,或者其他比較 distinctive 的信息才能搜到),但是這個墓地太偏僻,所在的地方也太小(估計連個村子都夠不上),Wikipedia 的介紹只有一句話:「Roaring Branch is an unincorporated community in Tioga and Lycoming Counties in Pennsylvania.」 不管是 Google map 還是 Waze 都無法像其他的地名那樣,輸入了墓地名字之後一下子就能找到是在哪裡。我輸入了各種地址都無法定位到,最後抱著試試看的心,用經緯度看看能不能定位到,找到路線, 41.568579, -76.948761,沒想到 Waze 可以識別(我不用 Google map 導航)。 繼續閱讀 »

主頁「尋根記」

最近看現有的主頁不順眼,要更改主頁,那麼,就要重新寫一下主頁這個文件的代碼。我一向採用的方式都是用 WinScp 之類的軟體(換了 Mac 之後用 FileZilla),登 FTP 。因為好久沒有登錄了…… 連 root 密碼都忘了,後來在 Control Panel 重置一下(好在還記得去這裡重置),才登上去。好在上次記憶了一些信息,要不然還要多花一些時間。

然後我就用便條把密碼寫下來給貼在牆上了,此外又在書桌的正前方貼了一張這樣的便條:【密碼都在牆上貼著】

好長時間沒有操作的結果就是,我不知道主頁文件在哪裡……連它的格式也不太清晰,也不知道它叫什麼。FTP 裡面有好多文件夾,找的焦頭爛額。它應該叫 index ,但是好幾個 index ,在我尚存的記憶裡面,應該是 html 格式,要不然怎麼寫呢,但是碰到的好幾個都是 php 的,打開來看都不是。過了不知道有多少分鐘,終於碰到一個 html 文件,打開之後就是這個。

在這裡備註一下,根目錄是 home/wwwroot ,以後再也不用擔心忘記了。

成功解決一個棘手問題:500 Internal Server Error

不知道具體是在多少天前,按照更新提醒,我迷迷糊糊地更新一個插件,更新完,網頁也沒關,就去睡覺了…… 然後也不知道具體是在多少天前,我又要打開我心愛的《老人與海》,然後就發現打不開了。提示 500 Internal Server Error ,ocweng.com cannot handle the request 之類的。然後我以為又是 VPS 需要 reboot 了?因為現在用的內存比較大,所以不會出現流量過多導致死機的問題,所以我半信半疑地去 reboot 了一下,結果還是打不開。這一打不開,連陰謀論都出來了,是不是被黑了?

【第一關】問題出在哪裡:之後我就開始研究怎麼處理這個 500 Internal Server Error 。因為 ocweng.com 可以打開,ocweng.com/en 也可以打開,所以問題只能是出於 ocweng.com/zh 網上有個網友說是 theme 或者 plugin 出了問題,我一想前幾天自己正好更新了一個神馬東西,是不是因為這個出的事情?

【第二關】如何解決問題:有個解決方法是通過 FTP/SFTP 來連接到我的 server ,然後通過一系列步驟(具體在下面說)解決問題。 繼續閱讀 »

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,」 繼續閱讀 »

【AP 101】護教學導論:Keller Discussion Response

課程:【AP 101】Introduction to Apologetics 護教學導論
教授:Dr. William Edgar
學期:2016 Fall
成績: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. 繼續閱讀 »

學期:2016 Fall
成績: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), 繼續閱讀 »

【ST 101】神學導論:Digest 3

課程:【ST 101】Prolegomena 神學導論
教授:Dr. David Garner
學期:2016 Fall
成績: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. 繼續閱讀 »

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 繼續閱讀 »
