Dec 28 (Th) 2017 Is your new year resolution different from that of last year?

Xena Crystal LC Huang
What is your new year resolution? Is it different from the last year's?
Thanks to Philosopher-scholar Peter Singer's sharing.

USA Today has an article on "Are You A Good Person":

Are you a good person?
At the end of each year, we take stock of who we are. According to a new poll, "being a better person" tied for most popular New Year's resolution for 2018.

Sun Lasting A Marist Poll out last week found "being a better person" is the most popular New Year's resolution for 2018. It was also the No. 1 resolution last year, marking a shift from the previous decade in which “losing weight” topped the list 80% of the time (it tied this year). - USATODAY.comManage

Dec 28 (Th) 2017 The new year resolution: Are you a good person?

About my previous post - regarding the new year resolution: "Are you a good person?"
Here are some sources that make me a good (and anticipating being a better) person:
#1. Some ideas in these selected books make me a better person:

12/25/2017 Dr. Michael J. Parenti's Speak Engagements/videos and Book Reviews

4 You, 黃麗月, Dana Greenberg and Jenny Simpson

Sun Lasting #2.
Bertrand Russell's philosophical views make me think of being a good person as well. If you remember one of the viral posts on fb was originated from him: The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts. ...Well, I'd better show some skepticism of mine or my cocksure attitude toward the above statement ?

Peter Singer's philosophy reinforces me to be a better person. Here is why - he says: All the arguments to prove man's superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals. I cannot agree enough, except in suffering, the animals endure much more helpless and hopeless agonies which are beyond "words".

Sun Lasting and particular, all the feline majesties in my life make me a best person that I wanna be in the US !

Sun Lasting just a remix - how to be a good person...

May 7 (Sn), 2017 "No, sir, I know what I am fit for..."

Crystal LC Huang

In fact, I feel less discomforted when students confused the differences between Civil War and Civil Rights Movements in my Diversity Studies classes, after I heard the current president said that Andrew Jackson would have stopped the Civil War....

(Note, I do admire his self-aware honesty - an excellent quality, rarely found among the smart or the powerful people ! - see below).

Crystal LC Huang See, FB Inc. just took off the "share" icon (so to the other post after my sincere accolades to the FB Inc, see my previous posts). Indeed, there is no such exciting items, such as butts, boobs, or things like "I drank my milk, and then went to work"...etc. can be found or shared from my timeline for the divine entertaining !

Crystal LC Huang  Indeed, the anti-multiculturalism, anti-inclusion, and the ideological political-correct/in-correct parties raucously propagandize Social Darwinism, ignoring  most students who are not saints, nor the fittest survivors on the top of the food-chain, but still in their learning processes.

Is there such a thing called "to err is human?"

So, what are the rationales or hidden agenda behind all these anti-human diversity issues?

It reminds me of a couple years ago, one of my office-mates told students that the US only had ethnic issues but not the racial one, while the other 2 colleagues (office-mates too) refused/skipped to teach gender/sexuality themes in order to keep their religious integrity. 

Is there such a  thing called "Freedom of Speech" exercised and demonstrated by these faculty,
or whether "progressively vs. regressively"  enough, in terms of time, preparation, interest,
debated and discussed by/with students?

These events are just one glimpse to reveal how exciting it is in facilitating Diversity course, in particular, by a non-native English-speaking faculty at a Technical college setting. ( I can write a whole book about this journey of my pilgrimage).

Crystal LC Huang Well, seemingly I am under a great attention of the FB Inc. segment- manager? After a minor sweet-explanation of my post (see above), then the "share" icon was suddenly, popped out!
Don't forget, you get paid by monitoring FBers' obedience, but I am a duped doodler, self-enslaved for the FB Inc. - for free !

May 6 (Sa) 2017. Pop quiz for today; A short answer, regarding "Like"...

Crystal LC Huang
Pop quiz for today: A short answer
What and why does Facebook Corporate company want to Manipulate your/others' posts by this intriguing button called "Like"?

LikeShow more reactionsCommentShare
6 You, Carmen Ombasa, Steven Deckelman and 3 others

Crystal LC Huang Here are some attractive, if not interesting reasons so far I have collected (Please share your observations) !
Reason#1- Force you to like your own posts, for the FB Inc. does not want you to be lonely?
Reason#2 - Only "like" those who like your posts, so the FB Inc. will enact  NCLB
                  (No Clickers Left Behind)?
Reason#3 - To please, glorify, or worship your bosses, your managers, and whoever has power over
                  you, so the FB Inc. can see who is on the top of the food chain?
Reason#4 - To be part of the great collective consciousness and maze, such as million likes to K.
                   Kardashian's butt/Beyonce's swollen tummy, your cat purchasing a new tiara, or your
                  baby's diapers tinted with Poopon, so the FB Inc. shall reinforce such a fantastic
                  popular culture?
Reason#5 - To show off what an adorable/hated/envied "smarter/nobler than you"  genius, wise-man or successful snob
                  you are, so FB Inc. will enhance such an interesting human psyche to attract more clienteles ?

Reason#6 - To show that everyone is a socio-economic-political pundit, if not a junkie, if you want,
                  so the FB Inc. can prove that everyone can be (if not, will be) the current (or future?) US
Reason#7 - Self-mental therapy (safe valves?) to rant/cathart on your timeline, so FB Inc, indeed
                  reduces members in the overcrowded mental institutions?
Reason#8 - Daily/routine monologues and self-exposure to fill up Facebook company's memory
                  storage, so the FB Inc. is able to harvest the free, BIG, volunteered data and sell them
                  gingerly and wisely?
Reason#9 - For the FB stock holders, the FB Inc. will not let you down to maintain, if not boost up
                  FB stock market value, by any means?
Reason#10 - Welcome "secret agent men, such as FBICIA" to appreciate your contributions to ____?
                  A serendipitous feature of the FB Inc.?
Will be continued...

Crystal LC Huang Your turns to share?? Am I in my early dementia - mistakenly thinking that this is an  on-line class' collaboration !?

Crystal LC Huang After a short break, now continuing this dialogue (monologue?)
Reason#11 Watch out the saints, sages, wise-people who are reluctantly hidden under no "likes" or
                   minimally liked. Doesn't the FB Inc. need these tiny voices to counter balance its
                   hedonistic popular culture?
Reason#12 - The FB timeline user-producers can be lonelier than the FB info user-consumers.
                   Doesn't the FB Inc. wish that you are able to sympathize those spending time on
                   producing something for better-or-worse, and/or for diversity ?
Reason#13 - Aren't the FB timeline info or new-reel user-transmitters/sharers/taggers happy bees -
                   helping the hard working user-producers, within a second, viola, the great deed of
                   pollination - being done?
Reason#14 - Isn't the FB Inc. content that some of the fb users are proper pro-sumers (free, voluntary,
                  happy-slave), accelerating the FB business' profit exponentially?
Reason#15 - Aren't the FB Inc.' gamers the big lonely crowd, who make fortune, connections,
                  excitement, mental-healing...etc. on the cyberspace, and solve many types of social
                  problems, social inequality, virtually?
Stay tuned...

Crystal LC Huang Just found an old poster. Isn't the philosophy of "like" amazing - of the mass? Can you deny the power of Media-"Populism" which has been so successfully executed in the political arena and the commercial world !?

Crystal LC Huang Accidentally deleted. So a re-post:
2016, 回臺奔喪兩趟 (目前還在做那些無可救藥的心理復健):
閒聊一下咱家姊妹事 (Yes, International Women's issues)-

大姊一輩子做女工為黃家犧牲 - a great epitome of the 2nd wave of globalization- a queen of "MIT kingdom", yes, Made-In-Taiwan, though the dark golden time had gone. It is too precious to find any MIT :)!. 大姊於2016正月往生.

小妹麗玲 一 排行第十的老么,在眾多兄弟姊妹中她卻是最成熟穩重(麗月姊與我為玲妺設置紀念獎學金於成功大學與 my work-setting, Chippewa Valley Technical College。麗月姊現忙於建立黃麗玲紀念舘以緬懐我偉大的小妹)麗玲一直努力工作孝順父母 (已過世), 照顧大哥的遺孤. 一心一意想存錢買房子照顧母親. 她申張正義,打抱不平,並貢獻環保與社區計劃,幫助比我們還不幸的家庭與動物。但因為辛勞過度,半年前因病去世.

想從前到如今:古早時, 大家都生不起病. 我們兄妺小時候都是經歷媽的刮痧和吃草葯得以存活, 後來爸媽不想生病都不行. 那時國際情勢對臺險惡, 牙刷主義盛行,爸媽身體常出狀況. 好加在的是當軍人父母看病不用繳費! 就這樣, 雨神貪了甜- 拼命三娘 (麗月姊和我) 加入那 "偉大的濟世救人救家救國" 的從軍行列 - 實踐那:好男不當兵,好女得打釘 的保家衞"國"理想…(妳沒錢註冊醫學院而轉讀國防).

而我只配在臺北 當個無殼蝸牛女丘八. 不得已, 只好退而求其次, 轉到外地謀生!!(一個僥倖贏得人民血汗錢的奬學金把我給送出了臺灣…)

這不是甚麼見不得人或可惡可悲的事... 所以, 姊, 妳不要難過誤會我用這張小時候的軍裝照, 自討沒趣地招風惹厭一下 :) <3 p="">

Crystal LC Huang 我高中同學麗真, 我們有LINE連絡. 昨天她與我分享以色列的成就.我是対以色列有保留些看法. 但是人家全國皆兵, 萬衆一心, 捍衛千年得來的祖國 (海外以色列僑民居功最大, 尤其是美猶, 居百分之九十 -  藏富隠智於外, 而不是"淘空臺灣,五鬼搬運於外:把美國弄得既美麗又富強". 孫中山創國大致也是如此得僑民之助)! 以色列天天背水一戰, 日日生於憂患, 提防死於逸樂...自己的國家別人救不了!
槍桿子是可夺權, 也可以做其他有用的事.
好男要賺銭不打釘, 這道理大家懂得很. 佳兵不祥, 我也知道些...

...By the way, 妳提到美國軍人,
美國百分之九十的大兵, 來自勞工與下層階級社會.
教育與工作機會不平等( 尤其是社會階級,種族, 族群歧視), 軍旅鬼門關, 網開大門給弱勢群族- 製造"就業"機會. 武器競賽與銷售則是上層社會的戲碼.
