Da Ai Qing Chen(大爱清尘)
Wang Keqin, the founder of Da Ai Qing Chen, was a very famous journalist before 2011. In the middle of nineties, he got a chance to interview the coal miners working in Gansu province. At that time, he met the vice-supervisor – Lao Huang, who is responsible for supervising the coal mining, and Lao Huang was having a very serious dust lung (pneumoconiosis). He coughed all the time and sometimes he could not breathe at all. After a few years, Lao Huang died from the disease for not getting any single fresh air. Later, more cases went to Wang Keqin’s desk. Then he realized it is such a severe issue that there must be someone or some groups to help those hopeless people with the disease. Finally, he decided to help those helpless workers and established the charity group – Da Ai Qing Chen.
Brief Introduction
Dust lung (pneumoconiosis) is the most serious occupational disease in China. According to the statistics from the department of public health, nearly 90% of the occupational disease is dust lungs and the death rate is as high as 22%. Based on the research, in China, there are at least 6 million dust lung patients. Almost all of them are from lowest class. They do not have a penny to spend on hospital so to their data, currently China has at least six million peasants with the disease. In order to help those people, Da Ai Qing Chen was set up in order to help pay their hospital bills with the public donations. Everything happens for a reason, and so is the widely spread of Dust Lung in China. In recent years, no one can ignore the rocket-like booming economic development of China. Nearly all the economists and investors are talking about China nowadays. However, due to this rapid development, many constructions are held by either government or individuals because China is still a developing country anyway. Therefore, millions of…...

...Che Guevara: The Man and The Myth Many will call me an adventurer- and that I am, only one of a different sort; one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes. ---Che Guevara. Who was Ernesto “Che” Guevara and why did he chose to live the life of a revolutionary when he could have been an affluent doctor in Buenos Aires? Why was he to always be a “foreigner” when he loved his Argentina? What motivated him to leave his opportune life in an aristocratic family to attempt to achieve a better world for others? Che was a man with a lust for battle. No matter what he attempted, he went for it with everything he could possible give. But, what did he accomplish in that life? When his life is examined and his endeavors looked at closely, did he really make a difference in helping others to have a better life? Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara de la Serna was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 14, 1928. His father, Ernesto Guevara Lynch and his mother Celia de la Serna y Llosa were both blue-blooded aristocrats. His father’s family had lived in Argentina for over twelve generations and his mother’s family had land, both signs of money in this land of immigrants. Che’s father was “a cultivated man, very intelligent, he was active in the ranks of the Radical Party” (page 4, Compañero). Che’s mother who with her sister’s influence, would become a”socialist, anticlerical feminist” (page 4, Compañero). This heritage, especially his mother’s influence, was Ernesto’s foundation to his......

Fraud in Ais

...Fraud in the AIS Chad Burrell Professor Daniel Acheampong Accounting Information Systems ACC564 August 14, 2013 Abstract Firm Embezzled There were many failures in the firms accounting system that assisted this embezzlement to last for a decade. Sue Sachdeva was the main accountant at Koss Corporation and it is estimated that she embezzled over 34 million dollars during that time. Sachdeva was able to embezzle this amount through wire transfers, checks, and credit cards (Whitehouse, 2011). The first failure was the age of the AIS. It is estimated that the system was almost 30 years old. There were two offers to purchase a new system and each time Michael Koss, the CEO, denied the request (Whitehouse, 2011). Koss was operating on an outdated accounting system and probably thought that it was okay because he had auditors come in and authenticate the work it did. It is important to have a current system in order to keep accurate reports in keeping the company operating efficiently. Another failure was the reports that were produced by the AIS. Michael Koss never took the time to look at the financial records of the company. Even though he was the CEO of the company, he never took adequate time to read and compare the financial statements on a monthly or yearly basis. SOX The article recounts some specific problems within Koss: * Koss Corporation prepared materially inaccurate financial statements, book and records, and lacked adequate......

Decline of Qing Dynasty

...Decline of Qing Dynasty Qing Dynasty, 1644-1911, also known as Manchu, was the last of the Chinese dynasties. During the Qing period, imperial China reached its zenith of power and influence. The Qing dynasty lasted for almost 300 years, extended China’s borders farther than they had ever been before, and perfected the Chinese imperial system. After flourishing in the 18th century, it fell apart in the 19th. Like many complicated systems, it grew brittle and inflexible. It could not adjust as new problems arose. Bad harvests, warfare, rebellions, overpopulation, economic disasters, and foreign imperialism contributed to the dynasty’s collapse. One reason for the decline of the Qing Dynasty was that the rulers were actually Manchus and instituted many things in China which the Han people did not agree with - one was the practice of shaving the head but leaving the sides and a long tail required for all males - this practice was brought to China by the Manchus and the Han people saw it as an emblem of their domination by non-domestic rulers. Opium was also a major reason for the fall of the Qing Dynasty. Opium is a drug found in the Opium Poppy Plant and contains the major ingredient in heroin. The British were in possession of a very potent strain of Opium and illegally sold it to China. This cause most people in China to get addicted to Opium. This was detrimental to Chinese society because since everyone was always high on Opium nothing got done in China. Also when......

Che Guevera

...Che Guevara Ernesto Guevara de la Serna was born in Rosario, Argentina, but the exact date of his birth is unknown. He was the eldest of five children in a family of mixed Spanish and Irish descent; both his father and mother were of Basque ancestry. Guevara's family was an upper-class family with some leftist views. He became known for his dynamic personality and radical perspective even as a boy. While a student, Guevara spent long periods traveling around Latin America. Through his first-hand observations of poverty, oppression, and powerlessness of the masses, Guevara soon became highly influenced by his informal Marxist studies. He concluded that the only solution for Latin America's economic and social inequities lay in revolution. His travels also inspired him to look upon Latin America not as a collection of separate nations but as a single entity, the liberation of which would require a continent-wide strategy; he began to imagine the possibility of a united Ibero-America without borders, bound together by a common 'mestizo' culture, an idea that would figure prominently in his later revolutionary activities. After completion of his formal studies, Guevara traveled to Guatemala. Guatemalan President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán headed a populist government that through various programs, particularly land reform, would attempt to bring about a social revolution. Explaining his motive for settling down for a time in Guatemala, Guevara wrote, "In Guatemala I will......

Ai Weiwei

...2013 Ai Weiwei Ai Weiwei is an internationally celebrated Chinese artist whose voice is heard loudly through his art. He believes in freedom of expression and despises the Chinese Government’s power. Ai’s contemporary style comes in many forms; Sculpture, architecture, installation, film and photography, are only some of his great talents; his art exposes the very real hardships of the Chinese people and how their culture has been muted over time. The government has become such a major influence and has gained so much power that at one point they convinced the people to destroy their cultural reminders in hopes that they will leave behind an insignificant past. Ai Weiwei was born the 18 of May 1957 to father Ai Qing and mother Gao Ying. Ai Qing was well known throughout China for his very forward poetry. Qing would later be considered a liberal who spoke out by joining a very left wing Artist Association and in doing so he was subsequently arrested in the early 1930’s, this decision cost he and his family to be sentenced to live in a labor camp. For the first eighteen years of Ai Weiwei’s life was spent in Xinjiang and later they would be removed to Gobi Desert (with even worse conditions) then back again to Xinjiang before being released in 1975. Life was very hard for the family during this long period of time. The year of 1975, brought with it great change for their entire Weiwei family, they were allowed to return home to Beijing and in the year of 1978, Ai Qing......

Qing Dynasty

...THE IMPACT OF THE QING DYNASTY ON MODERN EAST ASIA The Qing Dynasty and Modern East Asia In what ways did the history of the Qing Dynasty effect modern East Asia? The Qing Dynasty has had countless effects on China and East Asia, including but not limited to the current distribution of land, philosophies and economic status. The anti-trade mentality plus the ups and downs in the Trade agreements the Qing Dynasty had been a part of relates to the state of modern China. The Manchus created the Qing Dynasty and combined many regions and cultures, creating a multinational empire and in a way unified China. Modern East Asia has been impacted by the Qing Dynasty throughout the many wars and how the regions and countries ended up being distributed amongst the winning and losing sides. The Qing Dynasty’s limitation of trade for the protection of its people was smart at the time to the Qing but it limited the total growth of China as a whole. The Qing had placed strict regulations on what can be traded and where those items could be traded, which at the time the Qing thought was a good idea to help protect their culture by limiting outside influences into its country. Early in the Qing Dynasty, the Qing traded with select European countries, Korea, Ryukyu, Japan, and other smaller states but only in selective categories. Near the end of the Qing Dynasty, China began or was even forced to accept more western......

Ai Wei Wei

...No, pero se da mas en ellos porque son conceptos difíciles o complicados de explicar; se da mayormente en el arte por que es mas fácil que le llegue las ideas a través de la visualización, y por lo tanto desenvuelva lo que el objeto o cosa artística pueda decir. El arte nos puede cambiar de diferentes aspectos tanto como la perspectiva de ver el mundo tal y como la conocíamos, emociones encontradas dentro de nosotros mismos que con ver simplemente nos sentimos raros o de alguna manera sensitiva. En mi opinión, el arte es muy amplio en cuanto a la expresión de ideas tanto como la difusión de las mismas, permitiendo el acceso a toda persona a percibirlas como ellas quieran, en donde pueden cambiar tanto en lo bueno como en lo malo. Reflexión: Ai Weiwei Ai Weiwei, un artista muy fuera de lo común, me hizo pensar tanto como reflexionar bastante. Una de las cosas que mas me llamo la atención, fue su vida, ya que durante todo el transcurso de su vida se ha enfrentado principalmente, a su patria. China, quien hizo casi imposible su vida por oponiéndose a su libertad de expresión, ha decidido retener a este artista-activista de proporcionar la verdad, la voz, la esperanza del pueblo chino. Con ello, se ha visto enfrentándose sin rendición alguno a su hogar, sin embargo, el nunca ha hecho nada que haya hecho daño a la población china. ¿En que grado una persona puede hacer percibir el arte, de manera ética, dentro de un gobierno socialista? Cabe destacar que Ai Weiwei......

Che Guevara

...Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, known as Che Guevara, was born on June 1928 in Argentina into a middle-class family. He studied medicine and during this time he travelled a lot in Central America. During his trip he had been shocked by the poverty, hunger, and disease observed in those countries. This experience inspired him to become a revolutionary. He later joined a group of Cuban revolutionaries with Fidel Castro in Mexico. Even nowadays, he remains the symbol of rebellion and revolution all over the world. However, recent research has proved that he was a murderer. So can we consider Che Guevara as a hero? In order to answer to this question, we will first explain why Che is a hero and then why he was also a villain. First of all, a hero is a person who is admired for his courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. So now I am going to explain why we can consider Che as a hero. Che Guevara was a revolutionary and as I said before he joined a group of Cuban revolutionaries with Fidel Castro. His goal was to fight against the Batista dictatorship (who was a Cuban dictator close from the Americans) and to establish a Marxist regime in Cuba. He proved himself to be both a good soldier and a leader. He was fearless and courageous. By May 1958, Guevara became the second-in-command of the large group of revolutionaries. Castro’s group had grown in size and strength during few months. Using guerrilla tactics, Castro and his men successfully took over town after town.......

String Ai vs Weak Ai

...machines that were able to do some kind of intelligent work. According to AI concept it is possible for a machine to think. Actually intelligence has different meanings according to different people so let’s skip this talk and come to the point Strong vs Weak AI. Strong AI: According to think tanks of AI a day will come when computer’s computations and calculations will become so strong that a computer will be able to take decisions just like human brain, so that we will be able to call it as intelligent as human brain. In other words a machine will think in the same way as a human brain does. Weak AI: Weak AI is also intelligence in a way because the technology that we are using today as AI can be referred to as weak AI. Because the level of AI that we attain today can’t be placed at the level of human brain, because the most advance machines today we have can’t actually think like human brains. The case of chess master Garry Kasparov vs IBM's Deep Blue program is a good illustration. Although Kasparov had the advantage of human intuition, Deep Blue had the ability to calculate 200 million probabilities per second. Better approach to adopt: According to me it is impossible for a machine to attain a level of intelligence like human brain. But if we consider that it happens so this will be a destruction of the world. Because human brain is equally as dangerous as it is intelligent, so better approach is weak AI but it should be evolved for the betterment of humanity....

Conversation with Ai Weiwei

...Summary of A Conversation with Ai Weiwei, an interview conducted by Zheng Shengtian Ai Weiwei, a respected contemporary artist from China is the interviewee in Zheng Shengtian’s article, A Conversation with Ai Weiwei. Conducted in the artists’ studio in Caochangdi, Beijing on July 19, 2013, Shengtian delves deeply into Weiwei’s life before and after his foray into the art world. It is through this interview that we get a sense of what the underlying inspirations were and what the current motivating factors are for Ai Weiwei as an artist and activist. A privileged childhood was far from the reality for Ai Weiwei. At an early age, Weiwei was already grasping what it meant to be wrongly accused and the consequences it had. Weiwei and his family were sent to live in a military camp in Xinjiang, China after his father; Ai Qing was condemned as a “rightist” in 1957 (Shengtian 6). When asked about his life in the military camp, Weiwei did not have a clear recollection and only saved a few traumatizing memories. He recalled the time when their military camp fired the first shot of China’s Cultural Revolution on January 26th. “I remember hearing lots of explosive noises. I saw my family boarding up the door. I heard running footsteps on our rooftop. Because the rooftop was made of tiles, which were not soundproof, I could hear the bullets whistling by” (Shengtian 8). Seeing dead bodies, including classmate, Ma Lu, is still very much a vivid memory for Ai Weiwei. Such scenes......

Da Vinci

...Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) wrote a treatise, the Codex on the Flight of Birds, which put forth the first scientific observations on the subject of flight. He discovered the vortices that are produced off the wings, and observed the alulae, or "thumbs" of the wings. He was concerned with the center of gravity, stability, and manoeuvrability. Leonardo sketched several types of flying machines: helical wing, beating wings, parachute, and bat's wings. Through real life trial and error Da Vinci learned the difficulty of realizing his great dream of flying in a machine powered by human propulsion, and turned his talents toward the problem of gliding flight. In the glider drawing below, the flyer's position is studied at the point where he is balanced through movements of the lower part of the body. The wings, modelled upon bats and birds of large wingspans, are fixed on the inboard portion and mobile at the external portion. This part of the wing in fact can be moved by the flyer by a control cable connected to handles. Leonardo arrived at this solution by studying the wing structure of birds and observing that the inboard part of their wings move more slowly than the outboard, and that therefore serve to thus sustain themselves and produce forward thrust. "The great bird will take flight above the ridge...filling the universe with awe, filling all writings with its fame..." - Leonardo Da Vinci Early Da Vinci gliders had a articulated wing with a system of belts......

Picasso/Ai Wei Wei

...is a means of communication, a means of expression, of any experience, or of any aspect of the human condition. And that is what artists do. With the use of symbols and techniques, artists express their thoughts and emotions about particular views on things. But sometimes, artists tend to go further down the more serious path of activism and politics. Ai Wei Wei and Pablo Picasso are two perfect examples of these artists. Ai Wei Wei is a Chinese contemporary artist and political activist who wasn’t afraid of speaking out against the Chinese government; while Picasso is a Spanish 20th century artist whose opinion very much opposed the Spanish nationalists’. Both outstanding artists and well-known figures of their art periods, they exploit with different materials and media to utilise their artworks as a message of protest, or a political comment to inspire their audiences. Ai Wei Wei is a Chinese contemporary artist born in 1957, in Beijing. He is a social, political and cultural critic and a political activist who strongly opposes the Chinese government. Majorly interested in the issue of cultural anxiety of changes in China, Ai Wei Wei uses sculptures, installations, architecture, and photography to express his disapproval of political views in China. One of the more famous of his works is an installation entitled Sunflower Seeds (2010) exhibited in Tate Modern. This artwork consists of approximately 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds, each painted individually by one......

Che Guevara

...Ernesto Guevara was born on June 14, 1928, in Rosario, Argentina. He suffered from asthma. At an early age he read history and sociology books and was influenced by the writings of the Chilean Communist poet Pablo Neruda. At 19 Guevara entered the medical school of the University of Buenos Aires. In 1952 "Che" Guevara ("Che" is an Argentine equivalent of "pal") broke off his studies in order to set out with a friend on a transcontinental trip which included motorcycling to Chile, riding a raft on the Amazon, and taking a plane to Florida. He returned to Argentina to resume his studies, graduating with a degree of doctor of medicine and surgery in 1953. Late in 1953 Guevara left Argentina, this time for good. He moved to Guatemala, where he had his first experience of a country at war. He supported the Jacobo Arbenz regime, and when it was overthrown in 1954 Guevara sought asylum in the Argentine embassy, remaining there until he could travel to Mexico. It was here that Guevara met the Castro brothers. At the time Fidel Castro was planning an expedition against Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and Guevara agreed to go along as a doctor. On Dec. 2, 1956, the expeditionaries landed in eastern Cuba, becoming the nucleus of a guerrilla force which operated in the Sierra Maestra Mountains. The guerrillas contributed to the crumbling of the Batista regime on Dec. 31, 1958. In January 1959 Guevara was one of the first rebel commanders to enter Havana and take control of the......
