機會臺灣

中美的交往,在過去這幾天中,不斷的在世人目光中加温,很明顯的可以
看出,一個新的局面巳然成形.

中國具有當今的別人沒有的現金硬實力,現在看來,馬上將在美國的全
力協助下,重新開發與美國的近入黃昏但仍然是超级的世界消費市場
分工,期待以共利立場,從新帶動全球的金融和貿易,以合作來落實經濟
戰略的夥伴目標.

美國方面可看到的,將是大量運用已入籍美阈的大陸財金學人回歸,最近
的華人閣員訪華,就是最好例子,他們將從基層面來強化美式消費文化,就
因為如此,可見到的,必然是想帶動另一波的新興市場與創業機會.

臺灣是長年熟悉美日的消費文化,同時又在中華文化的保舊與創新中,從
無停止,相形之下,己在最有利的地位上立足,因此在三向交流的取經及再
包裝的過程中,有獨一無二的歷史優勢.

高雄世運是完全達成了自我肯定目的,因此,高雄沒有做的,台北聴奧就有
必要完成,那就是真正的以共通國際的創意來吸引所有的境外目光.

聽奧無形中也成了一個臺灣及時雨的工具,如能充份利用,不但可以要讓
美國看到由臺入中的選項優勢,同時也要讓中國從實務中了解,什麼是在
臺灣再包裝的好處.

有相當多的外國人在世運期間因暑假人在臺北,不少不知道世運正在一個
1小時多的高鐵旅程高雄進行.

沒有通道來鼓勵及幫助他們改變行程,結果讓他們仍制式的身處事後可以
再看的故宮及中正堂,由此可以看出,我們宣導的形式化,

重點就是,機會是不等人的,時機過了,甚麼理由都没用.

臺灣的經濟奇績,主要是當年的政府能善用相對有限的美援,更全民上下一
心的,苦幹,實做,才成功的.

今天有了比當年”有限美援”更強大的中國金援,更因對岸歷史因素的傳統
責任,如此而產生的中國”善意”,從發展來說,這可是臺灣從未有過的機會,
能不珍惜嗎?

TAIPEI BRIEFING 7/29/2009

China has 338,000,000 people online.
That makes the cell users market the immediate challenge.
And Taiwan is providing many important parts.
That makes Chaiwan a true reality with imaginable future.
 
9 Asia markets are reaching new high including Japan.
All credit China’s strong and speedy recovery helped.
Taiwan’s economical statue is fast changing.
Strait relation is having a new observing point.

The political messages between two leaders are making headlines.
That indicates a necessary next step.
It allows both sides to be bolder.
That creates new expectation.

It frees both sides greatly.
In the past it was focus on the positives.
And all agreed to leave negatives alone.
Now it is strong to start solving the negatives.

Ma as party new chair will have to face certain problems.
First is the party internal independent element.
Then there is the Opposition Party.
That is their current extreme negative mentality.

And US are a concern too.
Are they thinking him too close to China?
His born in HK will always be a “cause”.
And the 2012 re-election complicates things even more.

Leadership also is an issue.
To focus or not makes near 8 times difference.
Staffs put in only 9% effort when leader less interested.
It goes up to 72% when other wise.

Good leadership manages to surround self with “right” people.
That balances out the leader’s strength as well as weakness.
He or she understands followers’ needs.
And he or she has to provide trust, passion, stableness and hope.

Oh, watch out your in take of the ice coffee.
It is said to be equal to a dinner.
That is reported by BBC.
You don’t lose weight that way.

Tata Motors 1st-quarter profit leaps at 58%.
Nano makes the expected difference.
And good news goes on.
The global consumer confidence rises too.

There is continuing trouble in Taipei MRT.
That is hurting Canada name badly.
The roof leak was like a shower in the car.
Where is Bombardier’s risk management? 

But Canadian dollars is strong.
It was 1 to 29.420 last Thursday.
And I had 26.43 in April.
But yesterday was 30.43.

臺北之最

世運會結束了,高雄上下,只見自我肯定的歡樂,因此最動人的瑞士拔河隊的運動精神,
相對的淡化了,其實這才是對比奧運功利至上的最大價值,尤其處於臺灣本身,從政治
到全面軍方從上到下的士氣人心,正是最好文明社會指標,沒有全面運用學習,可惜了.

新聞中有西餐廳,居然是十歲學童來上菜,點菜,端盤,下廚,洗碗,收錢,這種落實生活方式
的教育,令人耳目一新.

康師傅吉野家,連手大陸事業,未來以四川以內陸城市,有5年開1,000家的雄心壯志.

南僑陳飛龍不但得意台北和上海的餐飲業,又更有世博的發揮空間,好事成雙,現又有
台北土地使用變更開發的新利益,恭喜.

法匠治國,議題直指馬總統,危機又真又實,前人老殘遊記中,早有生動對照,中外一體,
如果不及時認清,絕對權力身邊一定有小人和yes man,歷史的教訓中,小人的定位永
遠在事後,目前身邊的yes man就是社會的期待一再化成嘆息與搖頭的主因,小人部
份,更是今後三年最大危機.

頭腦僵化,心胸窄化,眼光近化意志軟代,腳步退化,好一個政治和政黨的臺北寫照.

世運行銷,對內未及全臺可由眾多旅館中東南亞遊客中看出,他們己經到了臺北,為何
沒有高鐵及旅館的包裝,太可惜了,不知臺北的市府及聴奥有南下推廣.

尋找反對黨是臺北政治上的悲哀.

臺北田徑場的新面目,令人期待,聴奥的功能焦點就看你了.

500年等到的6分39秒日全食.

總統府的不在乎,比不設防更可怕.

臺北應該有成為”全球都市”的野心,聴奧期間,就是機會,如何做到讓世界走向自己,
全面為世界所用,重點是服務不在領導.

臺北便利商店服務的全面化,是令人驚嘆的,如何聴奧中讓全世界看得到,令人期待,但
維護消費者的權益也必須立刻全面加強.

選輸了

參選的用心和態度都完全正確,但想太多了,因此造成努力不足的結果,
在十人搶六個位子的狀况下,是可以做尾巴當選的,但停止搶票,因吡結
果自然都是別人的.

在我的立場,縣黨部眼中只有馬總統,黨代表只是具有工具功能,目標是
強化馬的投票率,地方選舉生手如我,一切只好摸黑.

雖然愉快,但也還是給了我黨代表候選人的資格,過程中,我的感覺是,
面對黨官是被指揮的,所謂的服務,對我這個有65歲人生經驗的人來說,
能看到的,只有高高在上的心態.

市黨部,除了主事人外,也都是官僚,第一次上門去,就接二連二對上了,
不論問什麼事,看到的,都是怎麼你什麼都不知道的態度,難怪過去,有
那麼多反黨出去的人,看到開都是滿面恨意.

制度面本身就是問題,11位子就有11保障名額,難怪過去不執政時,都
是同額競選,所以才可以有一票上位的結果,但在求變的時潮中,參選爆
炸,因此也難為了他們,在我所親眼看到的30餘人領表,處理成了只有15
個候選人,但這當中,還是有5個是保障名額.

成為候選人了,但手中沒有黨員名單,上門去問,回應的可是要買,我可以
1元臺幣買一個黨員地址貼條.

這時我才正確知道,新店共有1萬3仟多黨員,我忠於原則决定不買,因為
那有黨內同志名單要用錢買的,同時我不是非選上不可.

做了候選人就開始有人送東西,這造成了我的壓力,我連最初間接連署支持
我的39人都不敢連絡了,因為我不會去送東西,而且其中真有老手強力人士,
送或不送都令我為難,為了個人原則,决定不連絡.

事後諸葛亮,看到所有結果後,我確定,她一定能找到足夠的人讓我當選.

運氣真的不好,最信任的人,連名片就是出不了貨,自己也連選舉背心後面的
名字,都做的見不得人,花了錢最後根本不能用,同時再次體會到了,財力不足,
没有幫手,萬事難.

不服氣的我,走遍大台北,行情抓到了,但又時辰不對,每樣都是對方休息時間,
這一等,週末的活動計劃全完了.

但機會還是在我這一邊,如果我只求勝選,完全沒有原則的話,只要全力公開
反馬,那就一定能上新聞版面,尤其是知道7月20日可以和馬同臺,以臺灣的
政治及媒體生態環境,當晚在臺上面對面的強力反馬,一定是第二天的新聞,
甚至是頭條.

就有一個身帶二個充氣女體娃娃的候選人,就得到第二天的近24小時TV
報導,而且他當選了.

7月26日是投票日,<週五>17日我接到市黨部來電,是叫我去拿電話名册,
我直覺認為是市黨部主事者的善意,心中不希望是個人考量,又下午近五點,
没有去.

週一20日,因順路决定看看,就去了,一看是人人都該有的,就收下了.帶回住處,
一夜不睡全看完了,這個是只有人名加電話的册子,有不少人是二個人甚至六
個人共用一個電話號碼,因為自己一個人,人力不足,時間也沒有了,無法個別
一一去電,最後决定找電話公司.

民間業者,穩定性不受肯定,因此只好找貴但應該可靠的中華電信,約好了隔天
見面.

當面決定,付了2,000通的電話費用,但會有2,200通,每通NT $1.6元加上$2元
登錄費,這可以語音接觸4,000-5,000黨員,在週日選前的週五-六晚上進行.

話很簡單,就是”黨代表候選人二號陶士興問好,請記得投票”,但檢查週五下
午收到的中華電信打出的名單,其中只有2,107個電話,其中又有23個重覆的.

有心在最後週末,除電話外,用最初决定的捷運站各門口本人拜票,但大雨一來
就没有用了,所以也沒做.

結果的低投票率証明,沒有引發熱情的議題及候選人相互衝擊而產生火花的
選舉,傳統的,常見面的人際關係感情必然勝出,因此頭三名都是年長的地方
基層票主,四及五名為第二代政治家族.

我的老六地位,如果善用連署我的39名中的帶頭女士,就到手了.

結論是,自己不努力,又在用人决策上錯誤,輸的合理,反馬的策略是合更不是
我的風格,過程保持了原則,結局是輸了選舉,但讓我的生命更完整.

没有得罪別的候選人,又平和的交了朋友,還真不像過去的我,如果願意,仍然
可以帶動印度及加拿大在新店的商機,以及強化碧潭的休閒發展,只不過要因
人成事了.

US IN ASIA

Hillary says.
US are back in Asia.
ASEAN meeting at Phuket is her main focus.

She revealed one issue the public not aware before.
That is the nuclear link between N. Korea and Myanmar.
It can be a serious threat to the peace and balance to the region.

Taiwan has different voice in public.
They point out.
US had long lost influence by ignoring the region after Vietnam.

One bluntly pointed out.
It takes more than money to make a claim.
US are not having much to offer.

China, India and Japan are all here with Korea waiting.
All have interest in Myanmar.
Energy is the reason.

China needs the passage for pipeline.
India wants energy.
That is why Russia is working on Vietnam.

Hillary aims at Cambodia and Lao with the river economy.
The strategic partnerships among countries are all at full play.
Both Taiwan and Canada not included.

Obama again made a great “term”.
That is the “no excuses” comment.
But it is not noticed in Asia.

BACK TO THE MOON

This is a super hot topic on Taipei TV.
China is ambitious for the moon.
US sense the competition and get back to it after 40 years.
India is showing strong interest.
Russia is not too far behind.

We learn.
It is the fight of energy and resource again.
The shortage we have on earth.
Moon will take care of them all.
That will be 700 years worry free.

Thinking tank’s concern of war on resources is yesterday story.
Energy, food and water all will have solution with moon.
US had it in the pocket for long time.
It went to Mars for further development.
But China’s space breakthrough changes all that.

There are stories in all speculations.
Moon could be a space station by more advanced race.
And they are presenting some believable evidences.
UFO groups are not silent either.
Back to the moon is in all’s heads.

The reality is.
We are fast approaching 7 billion people.
And the earth limit is 11.
We don’t wish to use the war as a solution.
Space migration is the way.

SERENDIPITH

Taipei is more like Tokyo then ever.
That is fast picking up whatever is hot in the West.
In bookstores, you always see the newest concept books in translation.
Serendipity is on fire at the moment.

Experts conclude.
We are capable to formulate our own fate.
There are controlling elements.
They start with the ability to act upon right away.

Good natured allow you to get to people fast comes second.
And penetrating and seeing through matters is a must.
You have to be curious to reflect your range.
Finally you need to be alert and sharp to observe objectively.

At end, it tells us.
We need to appreciate what is there.
Things don’t work out can be a blessing in fate.
Accept all done deals as eventuality is the right thinking on any decision we made. 

輸47分的思考

有地主優勢,還是輸了47分,國家隊用的是韓國教練,隊中有傷兵,實力不完整,
從另外一個角度來說,這正是副手充份有發揮的最好良機,但現場真看不到外
來和尚會念經的真本事,因此這個决策明顯是没有實效的.

沒錯,對方的身高有制空優勢,但韓式的外線也沒有在我們選手身上看到,以短
制高或快打模式,影子都沒有,就算是我們球員夠好,教不出來,但光華隊面對
更高的爭冠部隊,反而打出了外線與士氣,就算是事後諸葛亮,以表現說,本土教
練更認真有效,培養自己人的機會,為何流入外人手中?

在現場,明顯看出,裁判部份大有問題,沒錯,來的都有國際裁判名份,但亞洲面孔
的,尤其香港來的,現場的水準與表現,令人一頭霧水,一個goal tending就在二場
地主隊比賽中發生,第一次沒人管,但第二場就因客隊強烈反應,結果居然使比賽
完全停擺.

現場有祕書長與老國手等數人在觀眾席,管教練的副祕書長在另外一邊的觀眾席,
主管裁判的執行副祕書長在體育館,但不在場邊,這個無權無威的真空地主國現場,
令人吃驚,這無形中已成了無人尊重及自重的國際廟會.

比賽是從下午一點到晚上九點多,館內沒有吃喝,而且除了礦泉水外,一摡不容許帶
入,為了人性的吃喝,沒有選擇,非出去吃不可,坐位又不對號,離開了再回去,與後到
的,為了場邊的好位子,有時真的彼此有理講不清,主辦單位的工作人員,真的明顯
沒有以客為尊的考量.

主席候選人小心

大家只看到報上總統府的維安黑洞,那個只有一個荒唐可說,
但少有人注意到,主席候選人的近身狀况,問題更大.

扳橋市立體育館20日晚,安全人員的坐位,至少到了十排,但
二起請願老人,男女各一,居然都到了第一排.

馬候選人在臺上,很鎮定,完全是處變不驚,很好,安定的臺灣
不同於印度及巴基斯坦,二地均有總理被人肉炸彈刺殺成功
例子,但元首級維安的標準,只能高,不能低.

從僑委會總統就職臺北賓館茶會起到現在,多少不專業的處
理盡入目中,世事多變,如果再不改進強化,命理家的政壇血
光預言,在年底前的全臺助選,令人担心.

MY DAY

Here comes the eclipse as once in 500 years with Sun, Moon and Earth in one line..
Kobe as the hottest NBA star will be in town tomorrow.
And it is my birthday.

I can’t believe the news in the paper.
White House Taiwan had a mental case lady moving around freely in the building.
She was in there for a long time before any action by security.

And I was on stage with President on 20th.
He is one and only candidate for ruling party chairmanship.
There were two old petitioners each got close with full security around.

Can’t help but to think how human bomb had killed Gandhi and the Pakistan lady.
Taiwan reflectively is safe, civilized and at peace.
But there is no way to treat leader’s safety this way.

Newspapers call it all government screws loose.
And the new Taipei Metro system proves how true it is.
No one seems to take “the buck stops here” seriously.

My beloved basketball tournament is a joke now.
All the tax payers’ money exactly wasted with total corruption.
It really became an art of blood sucking situation with no sportsmanship spirit left.

But, good news is still around.
Swiss is doing us proud in World Games.
They won by cutting player to equal German’s one short for championship.

Asia age is here to stay.
Taiwan has a golden opportunity.
But all systems need re-making before any long lasting benefit at end.
