Am I a news commentator now?

April 1, 2011 § 6 Comments

I do some freelance writing in my spare time. The effort seems to pay off as I was recently given an opportunity to write news commentaries for Yahoo News. Since I love to comment on things, this opportunity is pure gold. Below are two of my first commentaries for Yahoo News. Give them a shot if you have time.

1) Intervention in Syria?
2) Privatization for Postal Service


Japan will rise again!

March 14, 2011 § 4 Comments

Japan was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami over the weekend. Hearing this news makes me a little sad, as I have always had a special connection with the Japanese culture and people. In fact, I have written extensively about the country here in this blog and elsewhere. Although it may seem gloomy for Japan at the moment, I have no doubt that the country will recover from this. It should be noted that there have not been even a single report of LOOTING or ANARCHY since the incident. This is in total contrast to what occurred following other recent disasters like the Haiti Earthquake and even Katrina. This shows us that the Japanese are strong and proud people who will rise up from the ashes to rebuild their country. Pray for Japan.

Health Update

This nasty virus just won’t go away. It is time like this that one realizes the importance of good health. ┬áIncidentally, my 12-year old niece was hospitalized two days ago. She woke up on Tuesday, only to find that she could not move her legs and had incoherent speech. (;_;)

A blog update

February 5, 2011 § 5 Comments

Some of you may be wondering why this blog has not been updated for nearly a month. I have been suffering from a serious stomach virus that has limited many of my daily activities. Medications have been excruciatingly slow in putting a stop to this virus. I will return to blogging once my condition is better. Keep me in your prayers. Thanks.

Welcome in 2011

What will I be doing on New Years Eve? Ideally, I would like to travel to Times Square to watch the glowing ball but old man Winter probably won’t cooperate. Instead, I will be home alone watching some old movies, singing Auld Lang Syne, and eating Christmas leftovers. May be the next New Years Eve will be better.

Happy New Year to all! ­čÖé

Good News!

I have recently been informed that two of my economic articles have been selected as supplementary readings for college courses. Additionally, my economic research work was recently cited in an economic journal. Finally, I have granted the children periodical Studies Weekly permission to republish my “The Siamese Cat” story. What about you? Care to share some of your recent small accomplishments.


Dreams and Earthquakes

January 17, 2010 § 13 Comments

This started about 2 weeks ago. I dreamed about an earthquake. The next day, my home city (in Southern California) experienced a 4.0 earthquake. Two days after this, I dreamed about an earthquake once again; there was a 6.5 earthquake in Northern California the following day. Last Monday, I had the same dream again and the Haiti earthquake happened the next day. My next two dreams also coincided with two other notable earthquakes. This may just be a big coincidence, but it’s a pretty strange one. I bet psychologists will tell me otherwise.
