中国驻纽约总领事馆提供

               (Boston Orange 周菊子整理报导)bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿侨界於929日晚在帝苑大酒楼庆祝中华人民共和国建国70周年,约六百人欢聚一堂。中国驻纽约总领事馆副总领事邱舰在会中谈台湾,说香港,强调合作互利是中美关系的唯一选择。
             这场国庆晚宴由"大bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿侨学各界庆祝中华人民共和国国庆筹备会主办,中美文化协会,大bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿中国和平统一促进会协办,总策画为六名从bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿应邀回中国参加国庆大典者之一的梁添光。
             晚宴从迎宾时段播放红歌,自由拍照,黄氏醒狮团舞狮後,集体合影,出席者唱中美国歌,嘉宾致词,享用佳肴,一直进行到歌舞余兴表演,会场气氛都很热络,只是在宴会开始前,发生一名老外抢麦克风,发表反对中国言论,和司徒宗达等制止者互相拉扯,再被警察护送出场的插曲。
             纽约领馆副总领事邱舰在会上发表逾千字演讲,强调新中国70年来的发展成就,举世瞩目,中国人民已走出一条中国特色社会主义道路。他指出,在国家统一和民族复兴上,海外侨胞发挥了不可替代的独特作用,做出了重要贡献,他要代表驻纽约总领事馆,诚挚的感谢侨胞,致上深深敬意。
             邱舰在发表讲话时,不忘提及台湾,香港。关於台湾,他称两岸统一是历史大势,期盼海外华人促进和平统一。关於香港,他指过去3个月来,极端势力以暴力乱港,公然挑战国家主权和一国两制原则底线,他们要正告乱港份子,香港是中国的香港,香港事务是中国内政,任何遏止中国发展的企图,都将注定失败。
             由於今年是中美建交40周年,邱舰也特地就中美关系发表四点意见,称互利合作是中美关系的唯一选择,开放融合是正确方向,冲突对抗会没有出路,共担责任是历史潮流,而中国愿意承担自己应尽的那份国际责任。

FAR EAST PHENOMENON PAINTINGS by LIN, CHIA-HUNG at YV Art Museum

Acton, MA – Contemporary Arts International (CAI), a nonprofit art center, also known as YV Art Museum, presents the painting exhibition entitled FAR EAST PHENOMENON by LIN CHIA-HUNG in CAI’s Gallery. An opening reception with artist talk will be held on Sunday, October 6 at 2 PM.
After half a century of globalization and the existence of the internet, one would think the phenomena in the Far East are quite familiar to the world, but it is quite the contrary. This exhibition seeks to raise awareness, and hopefully, build a bridge for better understanding of the Far East. In this show, the paintings of “cute, little, girlish, and simplified” portraits undoubtedly confront the taboo in western art that “Art speaks the Truth,” with an assumption that the Truth of human nature is far from being cute and simplified. So the critical question is: Is it Lin the artist’s conscious confrontation or is it Lin Chia-Hung’s naiveté? 

Lin started his career as a portrait painter, however he was frustrated that viewers only wanted to see “who is the person of this portrait,” not its aesthetics, not its conceptual value, so he decided to remove individuality from the image.  His background in manga training equips him well with this stylizing technique. His bright-eyed girlish woman speaking through her stunning eyes and dainty nose and mouth, strongly suggests his influence from the Japanese manga art form.

It is common knowledge that manga is the most influential social commentary media in Japan. It reaches out to all walks of life, all ages, and backgrounds in society. In a highly structured society where rules bind everything, manga is like a little naughty devil, giving people tickles for some fun, to jump above social constraints for a little while. Overlain with visual Pop Art, it slips funky ideas or politically incorrect comments into peoples’ lives and the media know that its treacherous deeds will be forgiven. Taiwan, being under Japanese occupation for 50 years prior to the end of World War II, was certainly submersed in its influence. However, Chinese also has had its own “Maan Hua” (translated as “Manga” in Japanese) as one form of literary culture for centuries. This historical context helps us understand where Lin’s source of inspiration comes from. Evidently, from his series of paintings we have read his social commentary on “Student/ Schooling” issues, “Marriage” issues, and the “Rebels” in disguise behind the innocent face.

While in the old days, the mechanics of animation consisted of thousands of hand-drawn pictures, this process is now simplified by computers. As an experienced animation film editor, Lin expands the seemingly quiet female figure with subtle movement. She is not moving in this instance, but it looks as if she is surely about to move, her big eyes are going to blink any minute. The definition of “animation” is “bringing to life”, and Lin animates his painting, bringing us the essence that neither computer nor photograph can compare. From here on, one is equipped with sufficient information to imagine the drawings before and after this picture.

Surely, Truth can’t be all beautiful, but, fine artists seem to be the special genus of people who take on the mission to investigate deep into the not-so-beautiful part of human nature. Artists question troublesome social norms and the avant-garde, and we feel that we should carry the cross to speak up on subjects that are not “beautiful” and “comfortable”.  As a result, artwork that catches public attention is provocative by nature. It is not difficult to find evidence among renowned artworks that bravely demonstrate “Art speaks the Truth” with extreme means. One example is the use of unconventional material like elephant dung. Chris Ofili, 29, born in Manchester UK, just won the 20,000 pound Turner Award, by making shit beautiful. Another example is the human body exhibition by Gunther von Hagens, an attraction crafted out of the gruesome dead. As all material has been explored, all subjects have been examined; the Truth seems to be on the flip side of the beautiful. Being an academically trained artist with his antenna open to the art world, Lin knows what the art world is chasing after; therefore, “naiveté” is out of the question. The fact is, he bumps into the “prettiness taboo” head-on.

Furthermore, in the realm of portrait, regardless of style, Western perception of being “realistic” in terms of capturing the essence of the person is undeniably an important factor for its aesthetic value. So another question materializes: Is Lin’s portrait figure realistic? If so, in what sense is it realistic? For this question, let’s go to the market place in Asia. The millions who have traveled to the Far East surely have witnessed common places such as markets, department stores, restaurants, streets, and surely have had contacts with Lin’s “stylized” female figure. In Western countries with more diverse features, “beauty” stresses on individuality. Lin’s figure of the Far East, where features are fairly homogeneous (black hair, dainty noses and eyes, etc.), all differences have been simplified to the common denominator of femaleness. Lin’s depiction of the eyes seems to mock the fact in the Far East that big eyes are thought to be the essential trait in a beauty. But if one looks more closely, it is not so much the eyes that are big in proportion to her face, it is the rest of the features, i.e. mouth and nose, that are dramatically small. Moreover, the rest of the body is miniaturized, leaving only the round face and big eyes to advocate the story. Still, the general impression is they are too beautiful and too cute, even though one can see these are women, not little girls. Their make up and behavior captures the real women in service industries, for example restaurant’s wait staff. True, they are paid to do the job, but they are real, they are everywhere, real in the Far East and real in Lin’s painting.

From Far East classical aesthetics, the 3-D likeness of a portrait to a real person is not from the contrast of light and shadow, a technique universally valued in the West. There was never a single light source like that of Rembrandt’s painting in the Far East tradition.  In fact, prior to westernization, shadow in a painting read as “dirty smudges” that a trained fine painter would not do. In contrast to the western tradition of portraits in which an artist may do several paintings from one model, each with a different setting, facial expression, or style to articulate the artist’s ideas, Lin creates one “signature figure” with a neutral expression. There is no indication of mood except a minimal area of white on or around the pupil, sufficient to suggest its context. He gave the portrait a clean (without shadow), universal (no individuality) look. Perhaps it is passive aggression, or more appropriately, an aggressive submissiveness, which many Westerners generalize as the Asian behavior toward outsiders. As a result, we often hear the comment “an outsider will never be truly accepted in an Asian society, particularly Japan”. 

When meeting with the public, Lin appears to be shy, quiet, and humble. Like his signature figure, he is projecting a “quiet space” for his audience to create their own context, a humble motivation, and quite effective. As art critic Yi Tze Guo so appropriately compared Lin Chia-Hung to Yoshitomo Nara, she commented “The manga/cartoonish style of his (Lin’s) characters manifests the young generations’ bantering attitude/humor; while on the other hand, the emotional layers under the seemingly serene surface are reminiscent of the subtle aesthetics of classic humanism.”
One could say that Lin’s work is the Taiwanese Yoshitomo.  

Furthermore, Edward Lucie-Smith in ARTODAY stated his observation that “The main difference (between the period from 1960 to the present and the first six decades of the twentieth century) is to be found in plurality, absence of hierarchy, and a vast expansion of the cultural base.” Any art movement has to build upon a former art platform, which we call heritage or tradition. The Pop Art movement in the US in the 60s from Andy Warhol certainly was no exception. What is Warhol’s heritage? We might say the late Modernism when commercialism started rising, which is very different from Japanese Pop Art star Takashi Murakami’s heritage in Japanese art, which combines westernization with commercialism. However, in Japan and Taiwan, while the Pop Art movement permeates into all forms of traditional art, we would also expect a society so repressed with rules and discipline to be cautious and play it safe for the act of Pop Art liberty. In Murakami’s case, he stands on the shoulders of sophisticated prints from fine art in the Emperor’s court down to the fabric design in the common market place. In terms of subject he tactfully blends fashion, commercial objects, advertisements, and even western performance. While his painting in the olden days would have been taken as wallpaper, it is now deliberately portrayed as fine art work in major Museums around the world. Lin’s painting is a continuation of the Pop Art movement in the Far East, constrained, but liberated nevertheless.

Surely no one doubts that Art is an important communication tool, and if one were to measure its success by how many people an art form has reached, Pop Art would rank most highly in the West, while in Japan, Manga would be the first of the first. The sheer number of people under Manga’s influence emphasizes its importance.

Pop Art is fine art. Lin’s painting is the meeting place where painterly tradition merges into the animated computer world, a 21st century Far East phenomenon that few westerners have shifted gears to enter, look, and understand.

Lin Chia-Hung’s manga style painting has won him many awards in international Art Expos. His paintings are in the collection of National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.

YV art museum is open to the public Thursday-Sunday from 1PM-6PM.  CAI’s admission fee is $5 for students & seniors and $10 for adults. 

Rally to Stop October 3 Raids and Mass Detentions of Cambodian Refugees

Rally to Stop October 3 Raids and Mass Detentions of Cambodian Refugees
Impacted Families to Protest Against 279% Spike in Cambodian American Deportations

Boston, Massachusetts—Asian American Resource Workshop and the Asian Outreach Unit at Greater Boston Legal Services will hold a rally to protest the most recent round of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids on Cambodian community members. ICE has planned raids and mass detentions targeting Cambodian Americans for removal on October 3, 2019 across the country, including in Massachusetts.

ACTIVISTS OPPOSE CHINA FLAG-RAISING AT BOSTON CITY HALL

HONG KONGERS,  TIBETANS, UYGHURS,  TAIWANESE & CHINESE PROTEST
CHINA’S REPRESSIVE POLICIES DURING 70TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

BOSTON - Human rights activists from Hong Kong, Tibet, East Turkestan (Xinjiang), China and Taiwan today announced their opposition to the raising of China’s national flag for the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (P.R.C.) at Boston City Hall. Citing unprecedented levels of repression and violence by the Chinese government, both in China and the territories under Chinese control, along with seven decades of unrelenting repression targeting the Uyghur and Tibetan people, the activists stated their opposition to the flag-raising ceremony planned to mark the October 1st anniversary on Sunday, September 29th. 

In a joint statement the activists in Boston said: 

“We join countless people of conscience around the world who are opposed to the Chinese Communist Party and believe the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China is no cause for celebration. The unprecedented levels of violence and repression we see in China and Chinese-controlled territories today, including Tibet, East Turkestan (Xinjiang), Inner Mongolia and now even Hong Kong,  affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people and must be vigorously opposed by all freedom-loving people. Boston is the birthplace of the American independence movement and it should not play host to, nor celebrate, the totalitarian Chinese state which denies its own people their basic rights and freedoms, has at least 1.5 million Uyghur and Muslim people locked up in concentration camps, restricts access to Tibet and has made it the largest open-air prison in the world, and is now hell-bent on undermining democracy in Hong Kong and beating the people into submission.” 

A joint protest is planned at the flag-raising event at Boston City Hall Plaza from 11am-1pm,  Sunday, September 29th, 2019. Similar protests are planned for 69 cities around the world this weekend.

              (Boston Orange 周菊子bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿报导)第九届中美健康峰会(U.S. – China Health Summit)的美国bet356邮箱验证_bet356靠谱不_bet356首页顿场,日前在400多人出席,逾百中美专家,医院院长云集,探讨中美都面对的建立可持续发展的卫生健康体系这重要议题声中落幕。112日至3日,该会将转往武汉东湖宾馆,举办中国场会议。

              根据中美健康峰会官网中文版,中国卫生部和美国健康与人类服务部於2011年正式签署定期对话备忘录後,该会每年在中美两国轮流举办,藉以促进中美两国医疗健康产业高阶层人士与未来领袖的合作及交流。2017年起,因应需求,还改成每年在中美两国各办一场。
              在担任中美健康峰会主席的哈佛大学医学院人口医学系教授暨中国健康创新与转化中心主任马晶领导下,今年的峰会,不仅有逾百名医疗卫生政策制定者,公私立医院院长,医学教研机构,以及医药相关企业界人士专程从中国赶来参会,还首次增加了一场医疗健康创新与投融资论坛

              马晶表示,近年来美国人民为医疗费用高涨头痛,中国也面对出生率下降,人口老龄化的挑战,而与此同时,医疗科技的快速日新月异,既扩大且提高了可治癒病种,却又可能昂贵,还不易得到,如何在人们可负担情况下,有效率的应用创新医疗科技来治病,改善人们的身体健康,变得十分迫切。今年的峰会,因此特地聚焦在” 建立可持续发展的卫生健康体系”。
              926日及27日这为期两日的会议,第一天是侧重在创新与投融资上,分为3场论坛,另有特别邀请到会的麻省理工学院商学院副院长黄亚生,讲谈中美脱钩对美国高新技术产业的影响",甘乃迪家族办公室Park Agency企业董事Stephen Kennedy Smith相互依存时代下的医疗健康
哈佛教授傅高义(右)和伍人英对谈"中美关系何去何从"。

              黄亚生指出,中美经济"脱钩",会对中美两国都造成极大的长期影响,美国的高科技产业会受损害,并影响到全球科学发展,但美国在科技领域的发展,仍将领先世界,并且包括中国在内的惠及全球。中国社会不该因为川普(Trump)在损害美国发展而开心。
              3场论坛的主题演讲,依序由哈佛医学院遗传学教授George ChurchIora 健康创始人兼执行长Rushika FernandopullePear Therapeutics创始人兼执行长Corey McCann主讲了成本创新、预防罕见及常见病学会飞翔:建构以人为本的新型初级医疗数位医疗,内裤侏儒和处方药数位疗法(Digital Health, Underpants Gnomes, and Prescription Digital Therapeutics)”
麻省理工学院史隆管理学院副院长黄亚生谈中美经济脱钩的影响。

              George Church指出,大多数的创新生物科技,可负担性都是关键问题。他提出两种降低价格的建议,完全转向预防,或把某些疗法转为预防,此外应该聚焦常见病,以期做临床实验的固定开销,可由更多人来分摊。他担心的是,最常见的病大都和年龄引起的衰老有关。
              Rushika Fernandopulle表示,现有的医疗服务提供模式不充足,将来的新模式大概和人们现在看到的都不一样,关键是要根据消费者的需求来打造服务提供模式。新进入市场者,将在带动行业向前上,扮演重要脚色。

              Corey McCann南园(South Park)”卡通片的内裤侏儒(Underpants Gnomes)”,来形容医疗健保行业的经营。内裤侏儒的第一阶段是收集内裤,医药健保行业数位化的第一步是收集大数据,但第二步要做什麽,最後才达到盈利目的呢?他认为,得到法规机构授权,基於所创造的价值来补偿费用,将是趋势。该公司Pear就有美国食品及药物管理局认证的商标和功效声明,进而藉由定价和报销途径来反映其在健康上的经济价值。他表示,处方数位疗法(Prescription Digital Therapeutics)是下一代的主流治疗方案。

              第二天的会议主旨是建立可持续发展的卫生健康体系,有五场论坛或圆桌讨论,分别是"卫生体系与医疗机构间的学习与比较建立可持续发展的整合型医疗卫生体系以价值为基础的保险和医疗品质中国公共卫生与医疗服务的未来美国公共卫生与医疗服务的未来,以及东亚问题着名学者傅高义(Ezra Vogel)和哈佛大学法学院教授伍人英(Mark Wu)中美关系何去何从午餐讨论。
              傅高义直言,时移势易,中国不但早已不再贫弱,在经济,尤其是武力的发展上,以及对亚洲、非洲,印度的影响力越来越大,更已使得美国对中国,开始戒慎警备,两国之间的关系,看来并不乐观,恐怕会持续紧张。但两国合作,才是解决世上问题的最好方向。
              伍人英认为,中美两国关系演变至今,关键之一是核心价值观大相迳庭。许多人以为,关系不好,都是因为贸易战,其实不那麽单纯。

              蔡维翰综述了麻州的医疗健保体系结构,概况与开销。他表示,麻州的全民健康医疗保险涵盖率已高达97%,远高於美国各州平均数,其中大约50%60%是由商业医保提供,20%30%是由他负责承办的麻州健康(MassHealth)项目来提供医疗保险(Medicare),以及为贫穷,残障等等人口提供的医疗补助(Medicaid)。整个麻州的政府预算,约有40%都是花在医疗保险上。他也谈到麻州健康重整架构,藉由负责任医疗护理组织(Accountable Care Organization,简称ACOs)来根据医疗的价值与结果付费。
