Another random Chinese article…from a few weeks back, forwarded to me by my classmate from Beijing University Charlene Wang. I chose Charlene as a name for her in college, because her original English name was Beryl, and I was like nononono. You sound like some British grandmother. åŽè£”å¥³è®°è€…æŽ€èµ·æ£ç»Ÿä¸é¤çƒ æŽç«žçš„æ–°ä¹¦ã€Šå¹¸è¿ç¾é¥¼çºªäº‹ã€‹å‡ºç‰ˆåŽå¸¦èµ·äº†ç¾Žå›½äººçš„æ£ç»Ÿä¸å›½èœæ–‡åŒ–çƒã€‚ ã€€ã€€å¹¸è¿ç¾é¥¼æ˜¯ç”±æ—¥æœ¬äººå‘æ˜Žã€”å·¦å®—æ£ é¸¡”ä¸å…³å·¦å®—æ£ äº‹ã€ä¸¤ä»£å¸ƒä»€æ€»ç»Ÿæœ‰ç‰¹åˆ«ç•™åº§çš„é˜²å¼¹ä¸é¤å°ï¼Œè¿˜æœ‰ä¸å›½ä»¥å¤–å…¨ä¸–ç•Œæœ€å¥½åƒçš„ä¸é¤é¦†åŽŸæ¥åœ¨æ¸©å“¥åŽâ€¦â€¦è¿™äº›æœ‰éƒ¨åˆ†ä½ æˆ–è®¸çŸ¥é“ï¼Œä¸è¿‡ï¼Œæ›´å¤šçš„æ˜¯ä½ é—»æ‰€æœªé—»ï¼Œè¿™éƒ½æ˜¯ç¾Žå›½ã€Šçº½çº¦æ—¶æŠ¥ã€‹åŽè£”å¥³è®°è€…æŽç«žï¼ˆJennifer 8 Lee)èµ°éå…¨ç¾Žã€æ¨ªè·¨å…å¤§æ´²çš„æ¸¸åŽ†æ”¶èŽ·ï¼Œå†™æˆæ–°ä¹¦ã€Šå¹¸è¿ç¾é¥¼çºªäº‹ã€‹ï¼Œç¾Žå¼ä¸å›½èœå¤§å‘çŽ°åŠ ä¸Šæ£ç»Ÿä¸å›½èœçš„å¯»æ ¹ï¼Œåœ¨ç¾Žå›½å¸¦èµ·äº†æ–°çš„ä¸å›½èœæ–‡åŒ–çƒã€‚
