小學雞繼續學英文
古人云開卷有益, 今人上網亦如是

從某 Blog 網誌 又學到兩個生字:

Gerontocracy
A form of oligarchical rule in which an entity is ruled by leaders who are significantly older than most of the adult population. A state, society, or group governed by old people, government based on rule by old people.

老人政治,政治学术语,是指一个国家或政治团体的领导成员,平均年龄比起大多数的成年人民还要更老,但也可以被描述为领导层偏守成、保守的作风等的形容词。 老化的情况可随着阶级、思想的不同而随之严重,使得一个国家或政治、工商团体的领导权都掌握在老人手中

Kakistocracy
A system of government that is run by the worst, least qualified, and/or most unscrupulous citizens.
The word was coined as early as the seventeenth century.
是由最差,最不合格和/或最无良的公民管理的政府系统。这个词最早是在17世纪创造的。

黎智英先生 2020/10/25 文章說:
川普是個政治家,拜登是個政客。認為還是政治家可靠,遑論你對川普個人有何成見,認為他給我們更大的安全感。

於是又搵搵 "政治家" 和 "政客" 英文點叫?

政治家
A statesman or stateswoman is a respected, skilled and experienced political leader or figure. In most respects a statesman is the opposite of a politician. Politicians are thought of as people who will say or do anything to get elected or to gain power.
Statesman - Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

政客
Politician a person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization.

又查查 manipulative and devious
Oxford dictionary
manipulative
exercising unscrupulous control or influence over a person or situation.

devious
showing a skillful use of underhand tactics to achieve goals.

再問英文, 港星旅遊汽泡, 其他國家都有用旅遊汽泡一詞
Why is the word “bubble” used in travel bubble, (or travel corridor) as it has a negative meaning in most English dictionaries, e.g. bubble will burst like economic bubble, etc?
------------------------------------

老外如是說:

Richard Lueger, Former editor (Parliament of Canada), ESL teacher

It depends on the context and sense. If it’s about something ephemeral that may burst and disappear, then it’s probably negative. But if the sense is that it’s about something protected or in isolation, then it just describes a phenomenon, for good or for ill. A person with a compromised immune system may live in a metaphorical or literal bubble, so in that case it’s necessary, not negative. That would be the sense with a travel bubble.

Joseph Boyle, California

The negative meaning is mostly among economists and investors. It hasn’t dominated general usage

or Amateur Investors

散戶並非如通常所設想的那樣表現出低專業水準,有些在他們的理解範圍內往往能對上至國家宏觀經濟政策、行業政策,下至上市公司財務狀況、具體的高級管層講話闡述翔實的個人觀點,某些特別敬業的散戶除時常切磋看盤技巧外,甚至會到上市公司做實地調研,作風特點頗類似於投資機構研究員。

某些地區股市監管可能有誠信等結構性問題. 在這樣的市場中,散戶處於不利的博弈位置,遭受了損失。解決了以上結構性問題後,散戶在市場博弈中將獲得更大的機會。

Also with a negative sense.

Concerning travel bubble, any possibility the result of pandemic?
Travelers need to satisfy certain safety requirements, such as with medical cert, and condition of the originating place, etc.

About protective bubbles 可能九唔搭八
We all live in our world. ‘Bubble shield’ concept proposes how the idea of a private protected zone could become physical, going one step further than social distancing measures

'living in your own bubble’ into manifestation, developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to limit the spread of the virus, the ‘bubble shield’ concept is essentially a physical barrier created to protect people in public spaces.

小學雞, 問英文

散戶 (股票) in English
有說 retail investors, small investors, individual investors.
老外 British 話根據香港法例 "non-professional investors".
不過似乎表達唔到大眾對 “散戶” 帶有輕視負面意思, 如無知散戶...

老外 brokers 點叫 (slang)

打麻將格言
另一老雀友傳來, 原文誇張少少, 將佢 tone down.

又盤開一談
Tone down
Tune down
Turn down?

我揀 tone down
From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English tone something:
to reduce the effect of something such as a speech or piece of writing, so that people will not be offended; to make a colour less bright.
To "tune down" is to change the tone of an instrument, like a guitar.
To "turn down" is to lower the intensity of something, e.g. the volume on tv.


1.打麻將不能讓你致富,但可以讓你活得精彩。

2.打麻將可能讓你比同齡人更年輕。

3.打麻將可能讓你遠離疾病。

4.打麻將不能讓你沒有煩惱,但可以讓你簡單寧靜 D (唔輸得者除外)。

5.打麻將能讓你享受現在, 無需考慮將來

6.打好麻將不僅要有興趣,還要有堅持。

7.打麻將不能讓你萬壽無彊,但可能讓你長壽,為了長壽堅持打麻將吧。

8,打麻將不能讓你返老還童,但卻能讓你駐顏有術. 不僅心肺,胃腸,大腦、小腦,左腦、右腦,都將會得到氣流地推動按摩,都將會在氧氣的滋養下. 比不打麻將的朋友,多一些新鮮的細胞, 多氧的環境,可以促進細胞的再生能力。(有冇醫學根據架?)

獻給摯愛打麻將的好朋友們

麻雀頌
恢復打牌, 打的是八隻皇, 四番起胡, 最高二十番,千變萬化, 要瞬息之間作出決是. 六七番食唔食? 或博雙倍三倍?

防止老人痴呆良方.
美國 NIH 研究報告 (one of the world's foremost medical research centers).
Objective: To explore the effect of an activity treatment-mahjong-on the cognitive functioning of persons with mild-to-moderate dementia.

Method: Participants were 62 older persons who met diagnosis of any dementia condition. They were randomly assigned to play either twice or four times a week over a 16-week duration.

Results: Regardless of frequency of playing, mahjong produced consistent gains across all cognitive performance measures.

Conclusion: Mahjong is a viable treatment option for dementia.
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16779765/

University of Georgia.2019/9/18
A new study finds that Mahjong may also be beneficial from a mental health perspective. Regularly playing Mahjong was linked to reduced depression rates among middle-aged and older Chinese adults

Julia Roberts Calms Down By Playing Mahjong
奧斯卡影后就覺得打牌可以帶來心境寧靜, 是 生活的隐喻 a metaphor for life.(這要講個人修養. 有人係唔輸得).

Magazine HEALTH AND WELLNESS September 18, 2019
Science Says Playing Mahjong Could Supercharge Your Mental Health. Can treat or slow the effects of dementia. Players need to stay mentally sharp throughout the duration of the game, trying to interpret clues from other players while constructing a winning hand. It Improves a person’s memory skills and sharpens the mind. It helps people to make faster decisions and better observations, and also forces players to think on different spectrums.

Stanford Report, July 15, 2013
Stanford scholar Annelise Heinz, a doctoral candidate in Stanford's Department of History, has found that both Jewish American and Chinese American communities were built around mahjong during the 20th century. Heinz said it provided the basis for essential social interactions.

"You'll hear people talking about playing with their mahjong group for over 40 years,"
A community-building game that helps improve a person’s memory skills and sharpen the mind. It helps people to make faster decisions and better observations, and also forces players to think on different spectrums. An excellent social activity and prevents isolation for people of all ages.

和親友 chat group 講股

銀行股真是黃台之瓜,何堪再摘.
#5 跌到 $32, 恆生 #11 也穿了 $120.
是時候忍痛止蝕了. 減持也要算死草一番, 例如恆生 $180 入, $119 每股蝕 $61, 己收息二萬,
即是可以 cover 到 300 股 (20,000 除 61 = 327), 一於咁進行.

愚見 HSBC 現價 $33不建議走貨
Why? #5 has net assets (資產淨值) of $93 per share.
就算摺埋每股都應該有這個數目收.
HSBC 市帳率(Price to Book Ratio,簡稱PB) = 0.48

我反而走恆生, $119 資產淨值 $69, PB 1.285


市賬率(倍) P/B Ratio (X)
市帳率(Price-to-Book Ratio) 是一種量度股票估值的工具。
計算方法是:市賬率 = 股價 / 每股資產淨值
若數值大於1,即是代表股價比公司帳面值高;若數值小於1,則代表股價低於公司帳面值,股價相對便宜。一般來說,市帳率越低,就代表股票估值越低,比較抵買.

香港有全世界兩名內最低市帳率銀行, 大眾金融控股 #626 是也, 其餘一問在俄羅斯.
大眾現價1.910, 入場費唔使四千
市賬率(倍) 0.263
資產淨值 7.266
收益率(息) 10.471%


如果世界金融回復穩定, 可以博外資收購銀行牌照
大眾是一間投資控股公司,其附屬公司於年內的主要業務範圍包括提供零售與商業銀行及貸款服務、證券經紀服務、投資物業租賃、向的士及公共小型巴士的買家提供融資、買賣的士車輛與的士牌照以及出租的士。

講開神父教師, 即收到港華 1955 會考班 chat group 轉來老歌一首, 並問安好
老同學全部 30 年代出生, 渡過二戰, 香港淪陷.

除了 whatsapp, 老鬼仲可以每月午餐, 每次都有 7-8 人出席, 即是死淨 7788
上次是 meeting 是 05/2020, 無所不談, 午餐竟然超過三小時

轉來老歌是 yesterday when I was young, 原唱 Roy Clark
豆毛 cd 是 actor/singer Howard Keel. 有論者話佢把聲豐厚, 是最被人低估歌星之一
"most under rated singer with a rich bass-baritone singing voice".

亞 Keel 版本送埋詩人 Robert Frost 名著 What Fifty Said

When I was young my teachers were the old.
I gave up fire for form till I was cold.
I suffered like a metal being cast.
I went to school to age to learn the past.

Now when I am old my teachers are the young.
What can't be molded must be cracked and sprung.
I strain at lessons fit to start a suture.
I go to school to youth to learn the future.

但太計較了。俾人圍,叫佢e 毛
-------------------------------------------------------
照我理解, e毛 是五毛一族, 如 m毛等
以前有位威哥話: 如果和 R33 主流意見不同, 就係五毛

我和 e毛素未謀面, 唔知佢或家人是高官, 我唔會拜高官, 也不踩高官, 要看他/她的言行.
以前 R33 有人圍我, 話咬糧公務員必定對高官感恩, 言者荒謬低智.
我 80 年代退休, 近代高官都未出道, 如何會對他們感恩?

要感恩也是港英政府, 我也不會.
咬糧是一種合約, 就如一張保險單, 細節在公務員條例和 circular 說明. 咬糧款項是從當年在職薪金扣除.

但我也對某些洋人感恩和充心感謝, 教會學校神職人員教師是也
當年英文是主要謀生工具, 神父班主任發覺班中小學雞英文程度岌岌可危, 每天課後義務補習一兩小時
得以養兒育女, 現在也生活無休
