分享 How to become a freelance English editor (1)
虞左俊 2014-4-4 02:12
I have been doing full-time editing for more than a year now. From time to time, someone (often a friend) asks me how to get started, because he is retiring, retired or wants to quit research. Personally, I think anyone with the ability to write research papers in English can become a freela ...

分享 五十知天命?
热度 3 虞左俊 2014-3-17 08:31
小时候,我就决定这辈子不当老师。原因很简单:一个班上50个学生,参差不齐,没法教。 拿到博士学位后,一心只想搞科研。每次还没申请到教职,就开始双脚发软(因为怕上讲台)。后来,有过代课的机会,也在夏(威夷)大(学)教过2-3个学期的本科生。渐渐地,觉得教书也可以,但是不自由,病得半死也得 上讲台。 ...

分享 GMO and 植物牛油(或人造奶油, Margarine)
热度 1 虞左俊 2014-3-17 05:49
现在,GMO 是不少人关注的话题。我基本上是属于“不反对派”。但是,我不会买GMO的 salmon;that's beyond my bottom line. 虽然我不认为GMO“有毒”,但是,我也不完全认为GMO一定安全。Why?因为 trans fat 直到最近才上了美国FDA的黑名单。美国的中老年人是在FDA的“引导”下,吃植物牛油(或人造 ...

分享 有时候,Just Do It

如果你是医生,你可能不喜欢被认为是一个“头痛医头”的医生。 很多年前,我有过一次胸部疼痛。疼得不行了,只好去医院。医生说,可能是肌肉损伤,让我吃止疼片。我想一定是遇上了一位“头痛医头”的医生。可是,止疼片真的很有效。 前两天,突然全身肌肉疼痛。一开始,我想明白是什么原因引起的。可是,疼了 ...

分享 Say yes to translation (from Chinese to English)
热度 2 虞左俊 2014-3-13 05:12
I had always said no to translation, but accepted a request last month to translate a research paper. (Hey, one can always use some extra cash for Coach handbags.) The mistake I made was over-estimating the amount of time I could commit. It was the busiest two weeks with many visitors. I kne ...

分享 Lost and found (a Word file)
热度 1 虞左俊 2014-3-12 06:52
I am not sure this ever happened to you, but it did happen to me more than once. When I was using a PC laptop, I sometimes forgot to save an email attachment (a Word file) into a specific folder. I went on to edit it, and quit when I finished editing, and then could not find the file. Eventu ...

分享 Be careful when you wish for something (to happen)
热度 1 虞左俊 2014-3-3 07:52
I had two deadlines on Feb. 28, and I didn't think I could manage both. So, I was jokingly thinking what excuses I could use. A kid might say Dog ate my homework, but a middle schooler could be telling the truth when he told his teacher: My MacBook ate my homework. My Mac is ...

今天中午,我的Mac死机了。我的感觉就像是我的生命也终至了。 I cancelled my dinner plan, and spent about three hours at the Apple Store, trying to recover some basic files from the TimeMachine (backup for Mac). At least, I can restart my life again, literally.
