[010].Net framework

Played a little bit with .NET Core on my Ubuntu laptop tonight. It’s surprisingly easy to setup. I do really appreciate Microsoft, as a tech giant founded 41 years ago(founded in 1975) because it is still innovative. People had said bad thing about Microsoft. Ever since I started writing my first website in grade 8, I’ve seen things […]

[008]More savings?

[008]More savings?

Oh! Another promotion email from a store I shopped! “More savings!”, “30% off”, “$25 off”. These promotions look like great deals! I’m sure some of you get similar emails before. Usually once a week, or more frequently. Now I want you to ask yourself a question: “Do I really need to buy that item on sale […]

[007]Be cool at anytime

I’m listening to an audio book called “Smarter Faster Better” by Charles Duhigg. There is a chapter about how a crew of pilots crashed a plane(Air France Flight 447), which has no mechanic problem at all, into the ocean. In contrast, another crew landed a plane(Qantas Flight 32) safely at Singapore Changi Airport with a failed engine. […]

[006]Be productive

I had enough of my procrastination! I wanted and put it into action to stop it since I started this write-something-every-day challenge. This week has been amazingly productive! The problem is, now I feel that 24 hours a day is not enough to finish everything I wanted to do. I realized that it is unrealistic […]

[005]Teaching C++

I spent a few hours tutoring my sister of her C++ homework today. I haven’t touch C++ for a while since graduated from college. Spoiled by C# with Visual Studio, I forgot some of the syntax. But I was surprised of how quickly I picked it right up. I still remember the struggle of understanding the lengthy […]

[004]How to be an expert

[004]How to be an expert

I think many of you have heard of the book “Outliers” written by Malcolm Gladwell. It talks about how billionaires like Bill Gates and Bill Joy were made, why most professional hockey players were born in March or earlier months of the years, etc. The most remarkable, and most frequently referenced part of the book is that, […]

[003]Fair education?

[003]Fair education?

I wanted to talk about two different things today, education and how to become an expert. But time is limited, let’s talk about education first. I watched a video that talks about how education segregated people of different classes. It’s an interesting point of view to me. In general, most people would think education is relatively […]

[002]About China

[002]About China

You’d be surprised how many people don’t know much about China. At the same time, many people who live in the country don’t know much about her either. A Chinese band called “Tianfu Incident” composed a song called “This is China” described how the media has manipulated people’s impression of China. Yes, the pollution, the food security […]
