Hello Kitty。沙豬對神豬,兩豬相爭,連床好戲看不完。



司馬觀點:北巿選情翻轉(江春男)


北巿選情出現戲劇性變化,原先民調一路領先的柯文哲,失去主場優勢,逐漸被連勝文追上,這兩天立委羅淑蕾指柯文哲涉嫌洗錢和逃稅,讓柯P疲於應付,如果他沒有快刀斬亂麻,趕快突圍,則前途堪憂。
立委羅淑蕾是支大砲,她的問政自成一格,有一定的公信力,她為連勝文當護法,許多人為她惋惜。她幾次批評柯P,都未中要害,幾乎淪為打手,有傷專業形象。不過,這次她有備而來,收集相當證據,對柯提出嚴厲指控,柯通不過這一關,就要提前出局。

及時澄清才能挽救


在選戰最後階段,出現這種情況,無異於宇昌案翻版,柯文哲如不明快處理,對案情做一清楚交代,則將步小英後麈。選後還她再多清白,為時已晚。柯P在台大人緣不佳,現在吃了很多苦頭,不過,再討厭他的人,也很少懷疑他的操守。
不過,柯文哲獨來獨往,他的團隊是臨時拼湊出來的,發言人沒有足夠資料,很難幫他辯護,他本人不善言辭,一急講話更沒有邏輯,第一時間不有效澄清,以後就來不及了,此刻是他選情翻轉的關鍵點。
柯文哲連連失言,但民調一路領先,他的失言,一開始是被認為是可愛的誠實,因為他拆穿國王穿新衣的謊言,帶來清新氣息,但是一連串的無厘頭,他的天真變成白目,他的誠實變成粗魯。他不斷暴露自己的無知,並炫耀自己的愚蠢,支持度一路下滑,他的好日子快到底了。
他與民進黨保持距離,以為可以藍綠通吃,有人形容他亂拳打死老師傅,但現在搞不好會兩頭落空。他製造很多話題,但無法主導議題,現在連連挨打,如果他不能捍衛清白,採取有力的反擊,台北選戰就沒有多大看頭了。

柯文哲快人快語,不按牌理出牌,嘴巴似乎動得比比腦筋快,沒有政客的虛矯身段,不會包裝自己,不惜暴露自己的盲點和偏見,天天製造新話題,娛樂大眾。他有時洋溢著智慧的火花,令人激賞,有時流露保守和傲慢心態,讓粉絲們暈倒。
柯P說小蔣是台灣的政治典範,獨派一片譁然乃是意料中事,因為,他再怎麼親民愛民也是一位獨裁者;但是,在人生最後階段,小蔣做了一些正面的事,和大部分獨裁者不一樣,他可以做得更壞但沒有,柯文哲對此加以肯定,反映許多中間選民心聲。
政治的是非,可以辯論,右派左派,各有立場,柯P走中間路線,不受黨派拘束,常令人耳目一新。不過,他對女性的偏見和歧視,犯了大忌,引起女性團體的強烈反感,這是他的致命傷。

禁忌議題須慎言

即使最自由的國家,還是有許多言論禁忌的,例如性別、殘障、種族、膚色、容貌、同性戀、宗教信仰,這些議題不能拿來開玩笑。柯P的言語中,不時流露沙豬思想,該受譴責。不錯,李光耀也曾經說一夫多妻的好處,在新加坡引起一陣批評,在國際上也引為笑談,但人家李光耀不需要選舉。
柯P講話很真很直,他說自己follow my mind,好像真的都是好的,理性的就是對的,其實,這是講求效率的管理者,而不是政治領導者的品質。因為,成功的政治人物都是follow my heart,他們很了解人性,將心比心,深具同理心,懂得設身處地,善於體諒別人。在政治上,heart永遠比mind重要。
不關心外界事務,一心好幾用,講話不看對方,溝通能力不足,這些都是典型亞斯伯格症狀,幸好柯P的症狀輕微,表面上很臭屁,以為自己超級聰明,但私下坦然承認錯誤,知錯能改,天天都在進步中。
柯P的沙豬傾向,引起很大反感,其實,他內心溫暖,勤奮專注,一輩子以救人為己任,而且,他充滿正義感和改革熱忱,一心想做對的事,可惜,外人看不到他的內心,只看到他的笑話。
沙豬對神豬,兩豬相爭,連床好戲看不完。 



Hello Kitty不是貓?!擁有Hello Kitty商標的Sanrio,趁Hello Kitty即將慶祝40歲壽辰發表驚人言論,稱牠並非貓咪而是人類,還是英國倫敦的少女呢!

Sanrio強調,Hello Kitty是倫敦一位名為懷特(Kitty White)的少女,「永遠就讀小學三年級,家住倫敦附近」,是有兩隻腳、同樣能坐能企的小女孩卡通人物,並指Hello Kitty本身是貓主,她養寵的貓咪叫Charmmy Kitty呢!

Sanrio突然爆料,全因美國一間博物館有意將Hello Kitty的資料納入館內,而負責該項目的人類學家亞諾(Christine R. Yano),獲Sanrio通知,說她錯誤介紹Hello Kitty的身份,並提供資料,重申Hello Kitty並非如外界所言是「無嘴貓」,結果意外引爆Hello Kitty身世之謎。

英國《每日郵報》 
Hello Kitty is not a cat, according to Sanrio
by Lauren O'Neil Posted: August 28, 2014 1:49 PM

  1. She may look like a kitty, be cute like a kitty, and even have the word "kitty" in her name, but Sanrio's most iconic and internationally beloved cartoon character is not, in fact, a cat. She's a girl.

    Seriously.

    Hello Kitty scholar Christine R. Yano revealed the shocking news during an interview with the Los Angeles Times this week, explaining that Sanrio would adamantly refute any claims that the character is feline.

    According to the Times, Yano once made the mistake of referring to Hello Kitty as a cat while preparing texts for an exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum.

    "I was corrected — very firmly," she says. "That's one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it's called Charmmy Kitty."
  2. Despite today's widespread chatter about the fact that Hello Kitty is not a cat, Sanrio confirmed to Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft today that she was indeed created "in the motif of a cat." 

    "It's going too far to say that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Hello Kitty is a personification of a cat," a Sanrio spokesperson explained to Ashcraft, using the word "gijinka" which means "anthropomorphization." 

    When asked if Hello Kitty was like Snoopy the dog, Sanrio pointed out to Ashcraft that Snoopy was different because "Snoopy still lives in a doghouse, and Hello Kitty, well, lives in a house."
  3. Sanrio's official Hello Kitty profile describes the character (whose real name is listed as "Kitty White) as neither cat nor human. She is simply "a cheerful and happy little girl with a heart of gold." 

    The profile contains a wealth of information about the cat-like character's background and interests, including the names of her parents (George White and Mary White) and her astrological sign (Scorpio.)

    An avid baker, Kitty enjoys making pancakes, eating her mom's homemade apple pie, collecting little stars, playing the piano and tennis.

    She was born in the suburbs of London, England and weighs as much as "around 5 apples." 

    "She has a twin sister," added Yano in her interview with the LA Times. "She's a perpetual third-grader. She lives outside of London. I could go on. A lot of people don't know the story and a lot don't care. But it's interesting because Hello Kitty emerged in the 1970s, when the Japanese and Japanese women were into Britain. They loved the idea of Britain. It represented the quintessential idealized childhood, almost like a white picket fence. So the biography was created exactly for the tastes of that time."
  4. Hello Kitty — who turns 40 this year — has grown since the 1970's to become one of cartoon merchandising's greatest success stories.

    Her brand is worth approximately $7 billion, according to the BBC, netting Sanrio an average of $759 million ever year off of Hello Kitty alone.

    From lunchboxes and T-shirts to gunsgrills, and even tombstones, Hello Kitty's expressionless face now appears on more than 50,000 products that are sold in 70 countries around the world. 
  5. Close to the hearts of many millennial girls, you'd be hard pressed to find a young woman living in 2014 who hasn't owned at least one piece of Hello Kitty merchandise at some point in her life.

    Thus, many around the web were shocked — and even upset — by the news that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Some are wondering why, and how, Sanrio kept the fact that the character is a human being so low-key for 40 years.
