A comment I wrote to someone who used youtube to say 'why black panther is bad in China.'.

03/25/2018 - 14:10 | TheEmperoroftheUni

To tell you the truth, there are many reactions online, including yours, that involves the movie “Black Panther”. Some of the reactions been has been in the scenario of ‘winners vs losers’. I have to commend the dozen of so opinions about why the movie was good, and why the movie was bad for the Chinese audience. However, I when I finished watching your report, I believe it did little next to nothing on understanding the true reason why the movie was received negatively to the Chinese movie going audience.

    Of course, when the marketers for the movie studio Marvel, just as any studio, when they want to market a movie, they have to push it toward a demographic audience with the data that they currently have about movie goers.  With that being said, they knew before the movie came out, that this movie would be received negatively to the Chinese moving going audience. Therefore, when it came to marketing, they did not push the movie to be marketed in the region well, whereas, they pushed the movie in the areas where the demographics are more diverse, which includes communities were they have the qualified preconditions: common history or culture.

    The other thing that I wanted to point out was the fact that you mentioned that you do not know the difference between DC and Marvel characters, which means that you already had prejudices that would lead some biases in your researching.

    When you mentioned about white, and pre-colonist cultures, and again, it was a mistake. Emperors of China have been dealing with people of color for centuries. With that being said, a part of Chinese culture, the Mongols, those slightly dark of skin, ruled China for a period of time. But as for color…it made no significance when it came to trading with merchants from the southern India and also Arabia.  My last point in your argument is that I want to mention many soldiers on the frontier areas of the kingdoms were often exposed to conditions that would change their skin color. In other words, you say… “Chinese people are discriminatory against those who were ‘a bit tan’ because ‘they worked in the sun’, and that they are of ‘a lower class’ would cause disillusionment and disharmony among the lords, who had to maintain the lands for the Emperor. There may be some research that may say otherwise, but this whole point or argument about skin color, in my opinion, has to do what the environment is right now.

    Racial Insensitive, and again, I have to make this clear. China and the rest of the Oriental countries are in fact, very diverse, with a wide range or races besides the dominant Han.

  Because of the culture revolution and the mass exodus of scholars ( and executions of them), The majority of people of the People’s Republic of China , especially in rural areas, has been largely absent for a long period of time, but still conducted its affairs with other nations. On the other hand, rural China, those common workers, had little to no contact with the outside world until the opening period of 1997,. With the changes in opening up brought lots of attention to international organizations, such as the United Nations, who worked together with the PRC to create civil services for the mainland. But this massive change brought a huge imbalance that you see today in China, both economically and educationally.

    In other words, The PRC (People’s Republic of China) practiced educational reforms, which did bring a lot back to China, but the fact of the matter is that there are a couple of generations of Chinese that are uneducated, or do not share the same diverse education as the West. However, the PRC is doing much better in placing a value on education  equality, such as the outstanding Shanghai region. But there are many regions China that extremely improvised. But it still has a long way to go in providing equal opportunities for all areas.

    When making an argument, or reporting, please tell the audience where did this research came from. First,  I am aware of the movie web site review, as it was obviously put on the power point. But as for the quote about “the overwhelming hand ethnic majority has made the population deaf to the nuances of racial political correctness”. I didn’t catch the name of the scholar you mention, for I like to read what else he/she had to say. *** But it is interesting when you point out to the cinematographer, Rachel Morrison***

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when you are in the public arena online (the world) especially in this day and age, we must provide solid evidences, and have a conversation with the audience in the solid facts that you provide to them. We must learn from each other to find the truth to all our questions. I hope next time that you can be able to invite the people who look at the video blog for a discussion.

    I am interesting in seeing how did each region or province did when it came to ticket sales of the movie, and if the reaction was positive or negative from the movie goers. My guess is that those who live in areas, mainly costal cities, or areas where the population of people hold a bachelors degree or higher, then it would be positive ratings. And another region in which I think the movie would be popular would be Xinjiang.

    In conclusion, the People’s Republic of China is a big country, and the political, social and economic environment that it is currently is doesn’t encourage a movie like “Black Panther to be successful. However, the PRC has many factors that prevents movies like this from being widely accepted. These includes media factors, economic factors, and educational factors.

Mis Opiniones Sobre la Dieta Vegana

03/25/2018 - 11:38 | Nitan_Shanas

El hipervínculo del artículo: http://aldianews.com/es/articles/cultura/health/dieta-vegana-si-o-no/52099

Hoy, yo quiero discutir un tema que es muy importante aunque no serio. El tema de mi escrito refiere a la dieta vegana. Muchas personas en mi vida (amigos, familiares, etcétera) tienen esta dieta y es hora de aceptarlo y aprender más.

 

Ese dieta - generalmente - supone la eliminación de carne y los productos  animales.  (por ejemplo, los productos lácteos y los huevos). Algunas personas tienen esta dieta para preservar el medio ambiente y otras personas son veganos por las razones de salud.

 

Desafortunadamente, la dieta vegana puede  estar dañina debido a la escasez de nutrientes que aporta la carne. Sin embargo, es posible tener una dieta vegana y estar saludable porque la carne puede contener sustancias dañinas/perjudiciales para la salud y la escasez de nutrientes compensarse con otras comidas.

Sinceramente, me gusta mucho la carne y la dieta omnívora pero no por una persona está justificado juzgar a las personas veganas.Su dieta puede estar saludable e incluso ser mejor para el medio ambiente.Naturalmente, es posible que muchas investigaciones digan/demuestren lo contrario. Aun así, esto no es correcto.

Aprendiendo un idioma

03/24/2018 - 21:58 | carmo

Aprendo español y últimamente pienso en la importancia de escribir.  Por mucho que estudie la lengua aún no la domino, sobre todo cuando hablamos del hablar.  Antes pensaba si pudiera pasar mucho tiempo escuchándola, de manera natural me pondría a usar todas las palabras y frases que habia escuchado. Ojalá fuera tan sencilla, si hubiera pasado todo este tiempo escribiendo y hablando en vez escuchando de forma pasiva, hablaría mucho mejor. 

Hoy puedo decir que entiendo bien  (¡salvo si hay dos nativos hablando entre si!) e incluso no me cuesta tanto descifrar la mayoría de los acentos por haber escuchado a personas en YouTube de varias regiones del mundo.  Sin embargo para hablar bien creo que es necesario dejar tu idioma de origen y pensar mucho en tu idioma de destino.  Y aquí voy hablando de la importancia del escribir.  Es una especie de entrenamiento para el cerebro para formar frases originales y no quedarse en la trampa de traduciir frases del inglés al español.  Creo que requiere que internalices los pensamientos en español para que en un momento dado salga todo más o menos automático.  Me fascina todo este proceso.

First post - my English learning motivation -

03/23/2018 - 09:37 | PotatoIsPotato

Hello there!

This is the first entry for me. This time I am going to write the reason why I want to improve my English skill. Actually, there are many reasons, so I will introduce one by one.

1. I'm a programmer. I used to work as an industrial engineer and found programming is fun, so I changed my career. Life of a programmer is mostly same as the fixing bugs as long as I experienced. And every error messages are written in English. Also, keeping on top of the latest trend is one of the most important skill to survive as a programmer. The latest trends are released in English usually. The more I can understand English, it makes my life easier:)

 

2. Some of my friends can handle English like their native language, but I cannot. Having conversations with friends, I always suffer from the way to describe the small details. And always regret if I could have higher handling skill, those conversations should have become more fun!

Maybe some of them who read this post might get the similar experiences like me! If so, please leave comments! Or if you have different motivations unlike mine, please also leave your comments, then we can expand on that part:)

Have a good evening from Japan!

Takahiro

 

P.S. if you found my English is wrong, please feel free to correct them. Thank you in advance:)

[First Entry!] Huzzah!! Check out my new blog!

03/19/2018 - 22:51 | Maya Cold

Weather has been a bit inconsistent lately, currently super hot. Managed to have an 8 AM jog with fam in time before the sun starts barbecuing us. I'm starting my 4th blog post already (not here, but on Blogger) so if y'all wanna check it out, feel free to do so! If you're interested, please support my blog by reading my posts and following the blog itself :3

Language Studies & Writing
Maybe sharing some stuff I have learned in a certain foreign language, or practice writing in the language. It's fun sharing things in different languages because I can apply the knowledge I gain from studying.
I also write poems and short stories leisurely. Let me have your feedback! It's really appreciated.


Life Rants
(Well...) It is a journal after all. I won't share personal things too much, just my opinions about certain topics or happenings at home, my school or even on the net. I like reading articles, but I'm not much of a 'fiction' person. I may link my posts to an article or two for direct credit. (Memes might roll in from time to time. If you are reading this, you have been warned.)


Comics & Illustrations
Ah.. Comics. There are 3 comic series that I've been working on : Cursed Blood, Rin's Research : A Whole Lot of Test Subjects and.... Jagaimo-chan's Tough Life!. Well being honest, Cursed Blood and Rin's Research are kinda like big projects. I will be posting updates about the stories as well as post illustrations and sketches. I hope to release my comics some time. Wish me luck! > <

- - -

^ straight form the blog. More info in the posts! Hope to see you there!

 

Really though, I have some minor English imperfections, but overall I'm capable of teaching basics and making neat conversations (cough cough,) so if you ever need a hand with learning the English language, feel free to contact me. Be my friend!

This is my first post, y'all. Viel Erfolg weiter!

I started studing with the Mixxer yesterday, and I have recieved the first correction from a native English speaker! I was really glad. I'd like to improve my English on the mixxer. I want to chat or skype soon.

I started studing English with the Mixxer today. Since I've just started, I'm not sure how to use it right now. If my English was incorrect, could you correct it? Thank you :)
