1949: The People's Republic Is Born
Mao Zedong declares the founding of the People's Republic of China on Oct. 1 in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.


1958: A "Great Leap Forward"
Employees of the Shin Chiao Hotel in Beijing build a rudimentary smelting steel furnace in the hotel courtyard in October. The Great Leap Forward, a scheme for mass industralization and collectivized farming designed as a Five-Year Plan from 1958 to 1963, was abandoned early after it led to widespread famine and the deaths of millions.


1959: The Dalai Lama Flees Tibet
Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama, sixth from left, rests with members of an escape party who protected him during his flight across the Himalayas to exile. The Dalai Lama left the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, on the night of March 17 after a failed Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule.


1966: The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution
Chinese Red Guards publicly parade their victims, who wear dunce caps and signs proclaiming their crimes, through the streets of Beijing. The Cultural Revolution of 1966-1976 unleashed radicalized youth against so-called antirevolutionary groups who protested Mao's policies. This photo's date is unknown.


1969: A Cult of Personality
Red Guards parade through street carrying red flags and a portrait of Mao Zedong. The Cultural Revolution was launched by Mao in part to regain control of the party after the disasters of the Great Leap Forward, but its extremities shaped up to be another destructive period in modern China's history.


1972: President Nixon Pays a Visit
U.S. President Richard Nixon watches Premier Zhou Enlai eat at a banquet in Shanghai on Feb. 28. Nixon was the first President to visit the People's Republic; his trip paved the way for formal diplomatic relations between the two countries.


1981: Confronting Past Excesses
Jiang Qing, Mao Zedong's widow, was sentenced to death on Jan. 25 for her role in the Cultural Revolution. Jiang and three other top leaders who formed the Gang of Four were arrested a month after Mao's death in 1976, marking what most consider the true end of the Cultural Revolution era, despite Mao having declared it to be officially over years before. Jiang's sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment.


1984: "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics"
Paramount leader Deng Xiaoping visits Shenzhen, once a humble fishing village in southern China until it was turned into the nation's first special economic zone (SEZ) in 1980. Today Shenzhen is considered one of the megacities of the world, with a population 32 times what it was before becoming an SEZ, and is ranked as having the highest quality of life in China.


1989: Massacre in Tiananmen Square
The People's Liberation Army cracks down on peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators in June, killing hundreds. In the months before, up to a million student protesters had gathered in the heart of Beijing to demand greater freedom of speech and the resignation of Deng Xiaoping, who declared martial law on May 19, sparking a standoff that ended in the tragedy witnessed worldwide.


1997: The Handover of Hong Kong
Members of the combined Chinese armed-forces color guard raise the Chinese flag at the Hong Kong Convention Center on June 30, marking the moment Hong Kong returned to China after 155 years of British rule. Macau, a longtime colony of Portgual, was handed over two years later.


1999: Popular Anti-Americanism
Chinese policemen surround the U.S. embassy in Beijing on May 10 to prevent demonstrators from storming the compound, following the accidental NATO bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade. Tens of thousands besieged the U.S. embassy for three days, attacking it with chunks of concrete and glasses.


2003: An Unwanted Export
Chinese paramedics tend to a man suspected of suffering from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) after he collapsed in public in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, on April 29. SARS spread from southern China around the world, causing massive economic losses and eventually leading to a shake-up in the country's murky health sector.


2003: The First Taikonaut
Staff members examine the re-entry capsule of Shenzhou-5, China's first manned spacecraft, in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Oct. 16. Yang Liwei, China's first astronaut, or taikonaut, emerged safely.


2008: Tibetans Mark Anniversary
Tibetans throw stones at army vehicles on a street in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa after violent protests broke out on March 14. Tibetans were commemorating the 1959 uprising against the Chinese that led to the Dalai Lama's flight and exile.


2008: Disaster Response
Troops help a victim of the earthquake in Sichuan province that killed an estimated 70,000 people on May 12. Though faulty state-built infrastructure was partially responsible for the magnitude of the disaster, Beijing was lauded for its fast and thorough response.


2008: Olympic Dreams
Fireworks explode above the stadium roof during the Opening Ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics at the National Stadium on Aug. 8. The Olympics were seen as a "coming out" party for a more modern and growing China on the global stage, and preparation and security for the event were extensi


2008: Public Shame
People holding babies who drank tainted milk powders queue to receive Type B ultrasonic examination in a hospital on Sept. 17 in Hubei province. At the time, three infants had already died from melamine-contaminated milk and 6,244 had been sickened, causing a outcry both within China and from countries around the world who rely on Chinese food imports.


2009: Riots in Xinjiang
Ethnic Uighur women grab a riot policeman as they protest in Urumqi in the far west province of Xinjiang on July 7. Police fired tear gas to disperse thousands of Han Chinese protesters armed with makeshift weapons. Clashes between the minority Muslim Uighurs and majority Han Chinese claimed hundreds of lives, leading to a security lockdown in the region that lasted for months.

Part 1 GTD - Get Things Done



  1. 写下自己的梦想,比如成为一个医生,成为一个好丈夫,参加GRE考试,参加XX比赛,今年读100本书等等
  2. 建立一个To-Do List,用来细化这些理想和建立近期想到的一些Tasks,比如读这周要读《北方的河》一书
  3. 设定Priority和Emergency,还有Time:进行筛选,哪些是必需的,哪些是和梦想没有必要的,比如《北方的河》一书不是很着急,但是很重要,给一个B的等级,然后设定这周需要读完。
  4. 每天check一下:今天干了什么?完成得怎么样?明天要干什么?To-Do List里面还有多少任务?比如今天我看从50页看到了100页,现在完成了10%了,计划下去周五可以看完,是否要把To-Do List里面的《平凡的故事》加入周末中去呢?
  5. 定期回顾和整理:这段时间完成了什么?下个月我会做什么?离我的理想还有多远?比如这个月我完成了什么,记录一下;下个月的安排大致安排一下,着重安排一下明天的任务。


Part 2 Agile - Scrum


  1. 我们需要做一个Product,嗯,不错,不过这个Product有很多requirements,让我把他们都细化出来吧!好了,这里有10个requirements

  2. 我们在这个Sprint 要做哪些requirements,让我想想,根据我们team的效率,还有requirements的优先级,我决定把1,2,3这3个安排到这个sprint

  3. 这个requirements的priority是多少,哪些是committed goal,哪些可能是strategy goal。requirements 1 (简称R-1)是必须,他是这个project的基础,R-2在R-1完成之后,可以进行。R-3不是很必要,我们可以挪到下个sprint,这个我们可以把R-4加入这个sprint。

  4. 用Jira和Burndown图来Track我们的工作,R-1开始进行了吗?完成了coding了?可以进行测试了?噢,都Done了啊?好,那R-2呢?今天我们花了多少时间了?

  5. 每天一个简短的Scrum meeting,update 一下现在的情况,接下来要做什么。昨天我测了一下R-2,发现了一些bug,已经报在Jira里面了;今天我会继续R-2的测试,并建立一个关于数据库的图标。

  6. Sprint要完了,我们的requirements完成了吗?能够做demo吗?嗯,我们完成了R-1和R-2,R-3没有完成,挪到了下个sprint,我们认为R-1,R-2可以进行demo了。

一个Sprint完成以后,又继续下一个Sprint,每天都朝着目标前进着。不过和GTD不同不仅仅在于一个用于企业软件开发,一个用于个人自身管理。此外,Scrum 是Agile开发的一种模式,能够快速响应客户的需求而做出相应的调整。所以很有可能,这个sprint做的东西下个sprint就移除了,没有办法,市场的需求。

鲜果,叽歪先后被封,伟大的功夫网(此处略过一个以F开头的单词N次),鲜果没有上了以后,自己就用google reader,早在之前我就用把opml文件导出了,还好有一个备份。不过就是google reader也时不时获取不了文章,很无奈。

上班以后感觉很不爽,不是说新环境的问题,而是感觉面对了生活: 老妈会告诉你诸如房子,GF等之类的事情;工作开始以后没有更多的事情去做自己的事情了,一个周末用来洗衣服,弥补瞌睡,逛超市了。


So, I'm back,继续着我的生活。Moving on my way...
