감사 Hirahara Ayaka -  感謝 - 平原綾香
那個傻瓜 그저 바라 보다가 OST

눈물이 흘러 넘쳐
올려다본 파란 하늘이
이렇게 푸르던 걸 모르고
나 이제까지 살아왔어
내 마음 속의 있는
사막에서 차올라 오는
소중한 물과 같은 사랑을
이제 영원히 믿고 싶어
세상에 하나뿐인 그대는
어느 곳에 있어도
나를 웃게 하네요
항상 나를 행복하게 하네요
사랑합니다
나의 마지막 그날까지
그대를 만날 수 있었던 걸
하늘에 많이 감사해요

다시 만날수 없게 되는 날
언젠가 온다해도
많이 행복했다고
처음이라고 오직 그대라고
사랑합니다
나의 마지막 그날까지
그대와 함께 할 수 있음을
하늘에 많이 감사해요

又薄又嫩又甘甜的煎豬肝。                            脆皮大腸酥脆又有嚼勁。

什麼樣的店可以讓泰籍的阿明師讚不絕口?竟是口味超台的百元快炒店。

●推薦人/李明仁(阿明師,台北喜來登飯店Sukhothai泰式餐廳主廚)

百元快炒滿街是,但阿明師精得很,就是挑得到便宜又好吃的店,「蟳鱻100元生猛活海鮮」就是他下班後的秘密基地。

2年前,一對來自宜蘭的兄弟許家瑋、許家榕,一位是辦桌出身、一位是快炒出身,通力合作經營這家店。

許家瑋累積在台菜餐廳欣葉與海霸王的工作經驗,奠定他對海鮮的敏銳度與火功的扎實,每天打烊後,凌晨2點驅車至基隆漁港採買,再回店內做前置處理,直到天明才回家休息。他對鮮度要求嚴格,顧客來店品嘗烤軟絲最能吃出原味的鮮甜。

在欣葉訓練出對快炒火候的掌控得宜,他最自豪的是煎豬肝,這也是欣葉的招牌菜,豬肝又薄又嫩又甘甜,有欣葉的品質,卻只有百元的價格,是來客必點的菜。

而最讓阿明師大呼過癮的是脆皮大腸,大腸經清洗處理,經過上蜜、乾燥等工序,再塞入新鮮蔥段酥炸而成。「有別於一般大腸,特別有嚼勁,又保有酥脆口感。」阿明師說。

老闆用料不手軟,加上宜蘭人豪氣性格,白飯免費,湯大碗湯底又能無限追加,無怪乎能征服阿明師的心了。

東四命和西四命

陽宅風水可以分成三大類來談:房子的風水 ( 一棟房子的外在環境、大門朝向、內部隔局,組合成房子本身所具有的風水 )、時間的風水 ( 每年、每月、每日,風水都在流轉,所以有‘風水輪流轉’之說 ),以及人的風水 ( 因為出生的時間不同,每個人都有自己對風水的特殊需求)。

對居家風水來說,以上三類風水中應該以‘人的風水’最為重要。房子的風水再好,如果不能配合居住者的需要,對這個人就不能算是好風水。時間的風水究竟是吉還是凶,也完全看對人的需求所造成的影響而定。這裡就要談一談人對風水的需求。

風水學的流派雖然很多,不過在談到‘人的風水’的時候,流傳最廣,使用起來最簡便,同時也最清楚明白的學說,應該是東、西四命說。

這個學說採用八分法,把方位分成東、西、南、北四個正方,和東南、西南、東北、西北四個偏方。在這八個方位裡,每個人都有四個對自己有利的方位,就是所謂的‘吉方’,也有四個對自己不利的方位,就是所謂的‘凶方’。

想要找出自己的吉方和凶方,先要找出自己的磁向數。

從出生年份算出磁向數

東、西四命根據出生的年份和性別來決定。這裡要介紹一個計算的公式給大家用:

第一步,求基數:

基數與性別無關。無論男女,都需要把自己的出生年份(西元) 的四個數目字加起來。不過這個數必須是個位數 ( single digit ),如果加出來的數字是兩位數的話,就要繼續往下加,直到得出個位數為止。

譬如說 1986 年生的,1 + 9 + 8 + 6 =24。

24 是兩位數,所以要再加一次 2 + 4 = 6,基數是 6。

( 請凡是立春以前出生的讀友注意:假如您的生日是在當年的立春以前的話,就要算到前一年去。譬如說:1986 年 1 月 15 日出生的人,因為是在立春之前出生,需要算是 1985 年生。

一般來說,立春總是陽曆的二月四日或五日,所以陽曆二月四日以前出生的人,都要往前推一年;二月五日及五日以後出生的人,就不需要更改年份。

正好是二月四日出生的人,就有必要查查農民曆 / 萬年曆,看看出生年的立春到底是那一天,自己有沒有必要改變出生的年份。如果當年是二月四日立春,就不需要更改年份;倘若是二月五日立春,就需要往前推一年。)

第二步,求磁向數:

這一步要考慮到性別。男性用11減基數,女性用4加基數,就得到了磁向數。

拿剛才的例子來說,1986 年出生的人,基數是 6。

倘若是男性,11 - 6 = 5,磁向數是5。

倘若是女性,4 + 6 = 10,磁向數是10。

第三步,檢查磁向數:

A、如果磁向數大於9:

風水中的磁向數一定要在1與9之間;如果您所得到的磁向數大於9,就要減去 9。

拿剛才的例子來說,1986年出生的男性,磁向數是5,5不大於9,不需要變動。

但是1986年出生的女性,磁向數是10,比9大,就要減去9,得1。1才是正確的磁向數。

B。如果磁向數是 5:

由於磁向數中沒有5。如果您所得到的磁向數是5的話,男性請換成2,女性請換成8。

拿剛才的例子來說,1986年出生的男性,磁向數是5,就要換成2。2才是正確的磁向數。

그래 나를 믿자 (好吧 那就相信自己吧)

by 정인 Jung In of G-Fla(Feat. Bizzy)

그래 나를 믿자                                             好吧,就相信我自己吧
믿음으로 살자                                              就靠著信念活下去吧
그 믿음이 세상 너를 울게 하여도                     即使那信念會讓你受傷流淚

그래 나는 웃자                                             好吧,我就笑吧
웃음으로 살자                                              就靠著笑容活下去吧
웃음 속에 내 사랑을 꽃 피워 가자                    在笑容之中讓我的愛情之花盛開

하늘이 두 주먹이다                                       天空也不過兩個拳頭大
다 가릴 수 있다                                            任何東西都可以被遮住
니 양심처럼 자꾸만 넘어지는 내 꿈                  像你的良心一樣  我的夢想總是受挫
또 딴소리 하는 세상 속에                               再次被拖進這不講信用的世界
끌려 나는 또 묻혀서                                      再次被它沾染 埋沒了自己 
         

모두 잊고 산다                                             就忘掉一切生活吧
허나 다시 간다                                             時間都白白浪費了
내 미래처럼                                                 像我的未來一樣
welcom to future my babe

그래 나를 믿자                                             好吧 就相信我自己吧

오늘도 생각 뿐이다                                       今天也只是想想而已
넌 의심이 많다                                             我的疑心很重
니 욕심처럼 자꾸만 휘청거리는데                    就像你的野心一樣  總是歪歪斜斜 

모두 사랑일 것만 같은 진실                            好像全部真實都會消失
또 그런 현실 그냥 흘러간다                            還有那些現實  就那樣流走了
허나 다가선다                                              全都豁出去了
내 미래 처럼                                                像我的未來一樣

그 움음으로 살자

fly high Bring that big bad
반칙해왔던 사람들에 비해 조금 솔직해
사람들과 웃어가며 애기해도
악몽 속에 시달리는 밤만 끔찍해
'참을 인'자 가슴에 새기며 노린 기회
드디어 후반전에 얻은PK
나 깊게 간직해 웃을 때가 제일로 행복해

그래 나를 믿자
믿음으로 살자
그 믿음이 세상 너를 울게 하여도

그래 나는 웃자
웃음으로 살자
그 웃음 속에 내 사랑을 꽃 피워 가자

只想遇到一個人

曲︰張宇     詞︰十一郎

那些人在我心裡經過 像風來了又走
我的心滿了又空 快樂後又寂寞

*那些愛在我心裡留過 短得像一場夢
   我一個人滿街走 沒有地方停留

#只想遇到一個人 所以我等
   相信會有一雙眼神 可以讓心安安穩穩
   不再像飄盪的靈魂 一輩子浮浮又沉沉

+只想遇到一個人 所以我等
   相信會有一種緣份 知道誰是陪我的人
   在我最慌亂的時候 有顆心永遠不會冷

   重唱 *,#,+,#,+

A Start-Up's Demise In Eight Steps

Working for the man can be a thankless grind. Now with the economy shedding jobs, more pink-slippers may try their hands at going it alone. Entrepreneurship can be liberating, but no matter what business you choose, success takes heaps of forethought, tenacity and attention to detail. In other words, all the stuff that Donny Don't--the fictional, fumbling hero in the following slide show--doesn't have.

Taking the Plunge

Donny Don't can't stand his 9-to-5 job. His bosses are overbearing, his commute interminable, his work mind-numbing and his paycheck paltry. To top it off, he gets consistently slammed in performance reviews. Fed up, he decides to take the plunge and peddle his own brand of funny T-shirts. Everybody loves funny T-shirts, especially the people Donny spends time with on weekends at the beach, and who all tend to laugh at his jokes. How hard could it be?

Finding a Backer

Capital is all too scarce for a lot of start-ups. Fortunately, Donny finds an angel--in the form of his loving and supportive cousin Danny Do, a partner at a white-shoe law firm--who agrees (despite his thinly veiled reservations) to invest in the new T-shirt venture. With that kind of benevolent backing, success was all but guaranteed, Donny thought.

Designing the Product

After buying a round of drinks for all his T-shirt-wearing buddies to toast his new venture, Donny summons his muse. His knockout design idea: "Homer Simpson for President." He shows a sketch to his cousin, whose closet is wall-to-wall Brooks Brothers. "What do I know about fashion?" says Danny. "Go for it!"

Six Questions To Determine If Your New Idea Is A Real Business

We've all been there, drinking our morning coffee, reading the business section, when--Bam!--the idea comes crashing home: that new gizmo or service that's going to change the world, or at least make us rich. But before you liquidate your 401(k) for startup capital, step back and figure out whether your "great idea" truly translates into a money-making venture. Here are six questions worth asking.

Do You Have A Compelling Value Proposition?

It's forever worth repeating: Great ideas are only great business ideas if you can convince people to pay for your product or service at a price above what it costs you to deliver it. Just because you think your idea is great doesn't mean anyone else does--or if they do, it doesn't mean they would be willing to pay enough to cover your electric bill.

Is There A Viable Market For Your Product Or Service?

It's not enough to find a few people who are willing to pay for your new product or service--you have to find more than enough of them to support a vibrant commercial enterprise. Professional investors (like venture capitalists) are especially interested in this question. They don't want to write checks to launch companies with limited growth potential, even if they'll likely be profitable. On the flip side, beware the lure of big numbers--just because there are 50 million U.S. dog owners who spend some $43 billion on their pooches annually doesn't mean enough would be interested in your new canine cologne. Finally, never count on creating markets from scratch--there may well be a reason they don't exist.

Can you Cover YourHonest-To-Goodness) Development Costs?

"Most companies that fail do so because they are lacking capital." We didn't say it; venture capital maven John De Puy, chief executive of Oaktree Ventures, did. While investors won't wave blank checks at you, they don't want you to fail either. The key here is honesty: However much you think you need to bring your product to market, tack on a healthy cushion; add more for tech-heavy products that may (read: will) need extra months of tweaking. Can't scare up enough scratch to get out of the garage? The market may be telling you something. "You won't really know whether you have a business opportunity until you try to get funding," says Charles Holloway, director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

【富比世提供/Melanie Lindner】

富比世/提供

2005年接近尾聲時,在英國南安普敦一家軟體公司擔任銷售人員的 Neil Moodley 想到了他認為真正能賺錢的方法,那就是創建一個財經網站,用於發佈高階主管名單和公共財經資訊,同時簡單介紹各個企業及它們所從事的業務。

現年36歲的 Moodley 表示:「當時,我們努力尋找有意購買我們軟體的企業,但進展一直不順利。」他認為,假如這個網站所提供的針對性資訊比彭博社 (Bloomberg) 和 Schwab 管理的在多數情況下免費的網站還要多,那麼其他銷售機構可能會願意每月花費30美元來通過他的網站招攬新業務。

雖然想法不錯,但時機卻沒有選對。大約4個月後,在網站雛形上已投入2500美元並花費數百個小時的 Moodley 驚恐地發現 Google 已經推出了自己的財經網站 Google 財經。Moodley 說:「這個網站看起來確實和我的網站很像。當我打開這個網站並發現它的內容完全免費,而我還計畫對同樣的資訊收費時,我的心情越來越沉重。」

哈佛商學院 (Harvard Business School) 企業管理學教授 Toby Stuart 表示,Moodley 犯了一個再普通不過的錯誤。他提醒那些想創業的人不要「高估自己的創意」。換句話說,如果你能想到這一點,那麼其他人可能也已經想到了。

我們都曾遇到過這樣的情況:當我們在早晨喝著咖啡,讀著財經新聞,或工作期間不經意走神時,一個關於將改變世界的新發明或新服務的想法會突然閃過腦際。但是,當你忙於計算自己的存款餘額並向親朋好友籌措創業資金時,不妨先回過頭來想一想,你的這個「好主意」是否真能轉變為一樁賺錢的生意?

您應該考慮的第一個問題是:我的價值主張是否具有吸引力?這個問題看似簡單,卻值得反覆思量:只有具備一個顯而易見且引人注目的價值主張,絕妙的想法才稱得上好的經營理念。這就意味著要有足夠多的人願意以高於成本的價格來購買你的產品或服務。

你不必制定一份90頁的商業計畫來詮釋你的價值主張。事實上,你應該能夠用短短幾句話將它表達出來。如果連你自己都不清楚人們選擇你產品的理由,那麼更別說你的客戶了。

下一個問題是:你的產品或服務是否擁有足夠廣闊的市場?專業的投資者不會爭相向沒什麼增長潛力的公司投資,即使這樣的公司有可能盈利。此外,不要寄希望於創造一個全新的市場,因為這個市場之所以還不存在定有它自己的道理。

市場有大有小,你的策略要恰逢其時。例如,總部位於聖地牙哥的風險投資公司 Oaktree Ventures 執行長 John De Puy 建議,創業者應當著眼於爭取利基市場25%至40%的占有率,而不是在巨大的全球市場中爭奪1%至2%的占有率。他說:「界定與支配,這正是秘訣所在。」

你的公司如果沒有一種持續的競爭優勢就不會長存。你的優勢是什麼?如果是技術,你能獲得專利嗎?如果是商品,你能打造品牌嗎?你可以將自己初具雛形的技術授權給他人,讓別人去苦思如何從中獲利,不過,你可能只是把大把鈔票付之一炬。

如果你依然堅信你掌握著未來科技的脈絡,那麼再問自己最後一個問題:你願意為此付出多少努力?據美國勞動統計局 (Bureau of Labor Statistics) 資料顯示,1998年至2005年間,只有三分之二的新生小企業在他們創業的頭兩年中倖存了下來,而僅有44%挺過了四年——這僅僅是生存,並非成功。在經濟蕭條時期開發新業務會降低你的成功機率,所以你要警惕所有可能犯下的錯誤。

最重要的是:如果你還沒準備好為你的新創意付出一切(並且真的做出一些努力),那麼就算你的想法再好,也不值一提了。

Discontent and isolation. Feeling at a loss as to what can be done to improve a situation. Doubt. Melancholy. A disenchanting experience. Disgust. Can also indicate being fussy. Having to deal with naysayers. Not recognizing what one has. It is an encouraging card, indicating help that seems to be divine intervention ensuring one has all the cups one needs.




The Sun - Reversed The Sun - Reversed

Means much the same, only to a lesser degree: limited progress, short time in the sun. Frivolity, vanity, and susceptibility. Poor sportsmanship. Spoiled, demanding temperament. Play becoming tiresome or to one¹s detriment.




The Magician The Magician

Talent and intelligence. A higher-comprehending mind. Purpose and skill. Independent thinker. Self-rule. Freedom. A person who is a force of art and creativity. Intuition. An inspiring, powerful voice. Commitment and communication. Eloquence and persuasion. Charm, confidence, and control. Talent that carries responsibility and casts one in an otherworldly light. Leadership and influence. Showmanship and dexterity. An ambiguous card, as the magician is also a trickster, a shadowy ringmaster, and a juggler. The unevolved magician character is a creature of appetite, impulse, and manipulation. Disregard of others and self-aggrandizing behaviour (resembling the rock star gone awry).
