1st week of August

  • Start the “Intermediate Python” course, mainly some operations of Matplotlib visualization. This official card is often turned over and looked at. Other notes are placed on Notion.
    Matplotlib Cheatsheet
  • Start to discover the joy of coding 😊 Could this be a new world?
  • It’s been a long time since I’ve been in the cinema. Recently, Shen Teng released a new film “Alone on the Moon” . The good news is that there is no more bad news, and the bad news is that there is no more good news.
  • Chopsticks Little Hand updated an article: “Dragon King Village: Be the One Who Overcomes Mountains and Mountains” , hiking 12 kilometers is indeed a big challenge, so in the end I joked: “Hiking, cured my mental internal friction!”
  • After swimming home at night, I have been concerned about whether US House of Representatives Speaker Pelosi will go to Taiwan, and finally landed at Songshan Airport at 10:45 pm on August 2. At around 10:20, Chinese fighter jets flew over the Taiwan Strait, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a solemn protest at around 10:50, and at around 11:00, Xinhua News Agency released a notice of the South China Sea exercise in the Eastern Theater Command, showing a situation of encirclement.

  • I finished reading Guo Jianlong’s new book “The Collapse of the Prosperous Age: Politics, War and Poetry during the Prosperous Tang and the An-Shi Rebellion” overnight. Sigh, it is better to be a cannon fodder in a troubled world than to be a leek in a prosperous world, and it is better to devote yourself to study and be pragmatic and diligent. Excerpts from some perspectives:
    • Forcing Shi Siming to rebel was exactly the same as the situation that forced An Lushan to rebel back then. Because their power was too great, it was beyond the system design of the Tang Dynasty. Unless they died, it would not be enough to satisfy the system.
    • After all, in the environment of the Tang Dynasty, people with extreme power and positions either died or rebelled, and all the court could do was to deal with him before he rebelled.
    • One of the great advantages of unification in the Tang Dynasty was that officials in the Tang Dynasty were mobilized by the central government. They had to roam across the country, which formed the so-called eunuch ethos, that is, people traveled around China in order to become officials throughout their lives. Similar to the officials, the literati in the Tang Dynasty also formed an atmosphere of traveling. Therefore, the Tang Dynasty can be said to be one of the most developed dynasties in China’s tourism industry.
    • Works at sunrise, and rests at dawn. Dig wells to drink, till fields to eat.
    • At the beginning, the chiefs of the three provinces were all prime ministers, which means that from the beginning of the Tang Dynasty, the prime ministers were not one person, but a group.
    • Bloody infighting, powerful enemies on the frontier, and lack of money in finances, these three deadly points became the heartaches that plagued successive emperors of the Tang Dynasty.
  • The WeChat reading team seems to have published a batch of old books. As soon as Mao Zedong’s “Practice” was on the shelves, they went to read it. Chairman Mao taught us:

    The truth is discovered through practice, and the truth is confirmed and developed through practice.

  • I ran a total of 8.97 kilometers this week, and the weather was too hot.

2nd week of August

  • 筷子小手updated an article: “Youting Old Street: The Prosperity of Chengyu East Road”
  • Turn off the WeChat Moments, do not spy on other people’s lives, and do not deliberately shape your own image.
  • A group of four of my friends came to Guizhou to study. They came across the popular Internet platforms “Village BA” and “Cow Fight”. They went to the former site of Liping Conference, Longli Ancient City, Sansui County E-commerce Industrial Park, and Rongjiang County New Media Industrial Park, Huanggang Village, Gaohua Yao Village. This trip to Liping in Guizhou was very rewarding. I read more, thought more, went out and met more people.
  • I have been studying in Guizhou this week, and I missed running and reading. I only ran two kilometers when I returned to Chongqing on Sunday.

3rd week of August

  • 筷子小手updated an article: “Longli Ancient City: Representative of Shubian Castle Architecture” .

  • Finish reading “Alan Turing: The Mystery Solver” . The writing is not good, the content is too scattered, it makes people sleepy…

  • In late August, the weather in Chongqing was too extreme. The farmland was seriously short of water, the rivers were dry, the water supply was tight, and the power supply was tight (industrial enterprises were shut down during the holidays to protect people’s livelihood and electricity). There was no rain for a month, and the temperature was above 41 degrees for a month. Forest fires continue to be warned… I don’t know if this will cause food shortages in the second half of the year…

  • After reading Shi Tiesheng’s “Me and Ditan” , this is a book that you can open and read after EMO.

    When a person is born, this is no longer an issue that can be debated, but only a fact that God has given him; when God gave us this fact, he has already guaranteed its result by the way, so death is a matter of fact. There is no need to rush things, and death is a festival that must come. After thinking about it like this, I feel more at ease, and everything in front of me is no longer so scary.

    The real name of man is: desire.

    She was breathing hard, like the hard life of her life.

    It was the sudden kidney disease that made Shi Tiecheng a writer with both humanistic and speculative feelings. When I read certain passages, I often thought of my childhood, and things that were once distant and vague were brought up…

  • After reading Jiang Tingfu’s “Modern Chinese History” , the author summarizes the modern Chinese history before and after the Opium War, and draws the core point of view: the modernized national defense not only requires modernized transportation, education, economy, but also modernized political and economic development. Citizens, half-new and half-old are useless. Another interesting historical fact is that as early as 1923, Sun Yat-sen sent Chiang Kai-shek to Russia to inspect the organization of the Red Army and the Communist Party.

  • Reflection on the crypto market in the past two years: I am actually unarmed. And moral cleanliness. Therefore, we can only dance with the help of the market. Dancing like crazy. Otherwise, there is absolutely nothing to say.
    market cycle

  • On August 21, I went to Liangping White Pagoda, a cultural relic of the Song Dynasty. When I climbed high and looked into the distance, I found a mountain fire. After the call was reported, someone responded immediately. Now, when it is sunny and hot, it is really careless.

  • Finished reading a history book, Gates of Europe: A 2000 Year History of Ukraine . It turned out that the ties between Ukraine and the Soviet Union were so close. Stalin’s successor, Khrushchev, was the general secretary of the Central Committee of the Ukrainian Communist Party! So let’s sigh, Ukraine and Russia are like the eldest and second brothers after the separation, and the Soviet Union is the dead old father. It’s hard to cut things and keep things in order, and it’s hard for honest officials to cut off household chores. Everyone, don’t watch the fun and don’t think it’s a big deal.

  • This week, the high temperature of more than 41 degrees continued, more than 30 rivers in Chongqing were cut off, and the grid load was also overwhelmed. This has been defined as a climate disaster. Didn’t go for a run this week.

4th week of August

  • After reading Bowman ‘s last book, “Nostalgic Utopia” , this book is relatively short. To sum up, in the face of an uncertain future, people increasingly want to go back to the past, thus entering a period of nostalgia . era . But what kind of past to go back to? Back to the Hobbesian jungle of all against all? Back to the ethnic society where the well water does not violate the river water and is isolated from each other? Allow society to polarize? Or return to the mother body for ultimate safety? The author analyzes and criticizes these alternative options one by one, and finally points out that we should walk in the same direction, hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder, and strengthen integration to form a community of destiny, otherwise we will go to destruction together. (I also read his “Work, Consumerism and the New Poor” before, which is also a book on reflection on the consumer society)

  • After reading Kafka’s famous work “The Metamorphosis” , Kafka still likes to draw, and especially likes the paintings of Japanese painter Katsushika Hokusai, which is a new thing to know. It turns out that the modernist outlook on life is lonely.

  • The mountain fire in Beibei District has been extinguished, and the temperature has dropped. Although it is still above 40 degrees, it is very pleasant to drop from 45 degrees to 40 degrees. After sunset, you can go out for a run. Reminisce lightly” 😊.
