HROCC winter ski trip, Jan. 12, 2008

Dear friends,
After survey, the date of the ski trip is determined and it will be held on Jan. 12. Please send email to HarvardROCC@gmail.com if you are interested, including NAME, SCHOOL and CELLPHONE #. Please do not hesitate to invite your friends to come, too!
It will be a one-day trip, 8am to 8pm, to Wachusett Mountain, and let me briefly explain the cost here. If you are a beginner and are not confident with learning on your own, I suggest that you join the beginner package, $74, including equip rental and lower mountain lift ticket. For those who want to ski without taking a lesson(as I did the first time last week), the equip rental fee is $32(the same for snowboard and ski), and lower mountain lift ticket is $35. ($49 for all areas.) So totally the cost is either $74, or $67, or 81. The round-tour commuter rail ticket costs $15.5. Basically we will take a shuttle bus at 4:45pm and come back, but if you are willing to stay for more fun, there is also a shuttle bus at around 9:00pm.
Please have an idea how you would like to do on that day. I will ask for the decisions on the train and collect fees to buy tickets for you. So be sure to prepare the cash. It will be more efficient and let me remind you that we have only about 5-6 hours of play. Time is money. :)

Best wishes and Happy New Year! (In advance~)

Therefore, we sincerely wish our CFP can reach every single Taiwanese student in the United States and Canada. (In case you were interested in knowing more about us and our Board of Adviser, please visit our website:

The Scientist as Citizen: A two-part workshop on the communication of science

The Scientist as Citizen 
A two-part workshop on the communication of science 
    
December 11 and 18, 6PM-9PM 
Harvard University Center for the Environment 
24 Oxford St., 3rd Floor, Seminar Room 
  
Cornelia Dean, science writer and former science editor of The New York Times and a lecturer in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard. 
  
    Since the British chemist and novelist C.P. Snow gave his famous lecture on “the two cultures” 50 years ago, many people have bewailed what he called the gulf of incomprehension between scientists and the lay public.  Today this gulf is wider than ever. And, as more and more political decisions hinge on matters of science, it has big implications for the functioning of democracy. 
    Whether the issue is climate change, stem cell research, or the Strategic Defense Initiative, questions of science come into play. But too often the voices of scientists are missing from the debate, leaving voters vulnerable to anyone with an axe to grind, an agenda to advance or money to make. 
    In part, that is because scientists are trained to stay out of the public arena. It is also because, as a group, they have difficulty explaining science in terms ordinary people can understand.  As a result, the voters have little reliable guidance as they attempt to sort out the claims and counterclaims of one side of an issue or the other. 
    To address the problems, the Harvard University Center for the Environment will offer a two-part workshop on December 11 and 18 for graduate students and post-docs pursuing a career in the sciences.  It has two aims. The first goal is to remind scientists that their obligations extend beyond research and publication in the scholarly literature – they have an affirmative obligation as citizens to participate in our democracy and speak out on matters of public importance, especially when the debate hinges on scientific information. Its second goal is to offer practical suggestions for communicating their ideas more effectively. 
  
The workshop is limited to 25 participants – attendance at both sessions is required. Dinner will be served! 

RSVP to James Clem, HUCE Managing Director, clem@fas.harvard.edu

網路禮拜一採購日


2005年開始,美國的國家零售聯盟(National Retail Federation)正式將感恩節後的第一個週一定名為Cyber Monday,還建立了一個網站(http://www.cybermonday.com)來介紹各家線上零售業者的當日促銷活動。

這一天促銷活動的顧客對象主要是感恩節後開始上班的線上消費者,因此大部分的促銷活動會搭配免費運送或是線上折價。但是否真的物超所值,就見仁見智了。

老話一句,不買最省錢!

Black Friday Shopping!

感恩節(每年十一月第四個星期四)後的星期五,通常是全美瘋狂大拍賣的一天。有許多的店家會從半夜就開始限時拍賣特價商品。但是商家一點也不瘋狂!因為破盤大拍賣的商品通常都是要過季、下市的;當季最流行的,通常折扣並不會下殺到破盤價。也因為從天沒亮就開始大拍賣,因此稱之為Black Friday。

那麼,各家特價消息要去哪裡看呢?

通常感恩節當天的報紙都會夾報很多店家的促銷廣告,可以參考。網路上也有,比如說http://bfads.net/等等,可以用在網路搜尋到。

遠近馳名的Wrentham Village Premium Outlets在黑色星期五的凌晨零時就會開張,一直賣到晚上10點。雖然有眾多的停車位,但是還是很容易客滿。但是有幾個時段是適合進場的,比如說,早上9點左右(凌晨進場的顧客差不多買好要回家)、下午2至4點(早上進場的顧客差不多買好要回家)、下午6點等等。

當然,採購時,還是要有理性、冷靜、清醒的頭腦。畢竟不買才是最省錢。

當老師還是當學生要看哪家餐廳而定

在哈佛,每具有一個身分,就會有一張特製Harvard ID。同一個人的不同Harvard ID各自會有不同的使用期限。比如說,STUDENT身分的Harvard ID就直到畢業才作廢,但是每學期的助教身分,就只到學期結束。所以在哈佛,有可能一個人有好幾張Harvard ID。但是只有學生身分的Harvard ID才會在上面註明STUDENT,教職員(包括研究生助教)的就不會有附註。不同的身分,自然也會有不同的權限,例如借書時間,就看你要刷哪一張Harvard ID。當Harvard ID 遺失時,教職員可以免費補發一次,學生得要乖乖繳交高昂手續費才能補發。

在餐廳,也大有不同。

哈佛有一種可以線上儲值的Crimson Cash,儲值成功後,Harvard ID就可以拿來在學校公寓或宿舍洗衣服、烘衣服,也可以在校園內餐廳刷卡付帳。

哈佛有多個校園餐廳或咖啡廳,都是由Harvard University Dining Services所經營,通常東西都不便宜,只是圖個方便。在這些校園餐廳或是咖啡廳刷卡付帳前,最好先打聽一下教職員身分跟學生身分的計價方式有何不同,是否有需要在結帳時提醒櫃檯人員自己的身分。比如說,在Science Center的Greenhouse或是Bauer Center的餐廳付帳時,學生消費不扣稅,教職員則要扣稅。在法學院的Harkness Cafeteria,則是教職員消費有打折,學生沒有。

其實,多個身分,自由轉換,在哈佛生活,是自然不過的事了。
