Being an "outsider," I'm not so interested in politics, immigration battles, that polygamist leader, OJ, witch hunt, which I hardly understood, and that guy called "Dog." I've never seen him and I don't know who he is. But one thing is obvious. He is not at all photogenic and I didn't enjoy seeing him. I'd already seen him on LKL before the show.
What a beautiful profile!
In Japan, hugging is not a part of our culture. We rarely do. Because we rarely do, I really feel love, friendship, tenderness and many other nice emotions when I am hugged. We are seeing a lot of heinous crimed caused by young people. Lack of love is one of the reasons why they cannot understand other people's feelings. Showing their love extremely might go far and lead to sexual crime. But teaching children not to show their love might have worse influence on children in a culture where hug plays an important part in communication.
I also heard that in some schools, for teachers to touch students is punished. I forgot where these schools are, though. I didn't touch my students so often. But sometimes, when they are depressed or nervous, just tapping them on the sholder seems to soothe them. This might be a critical behavior? It's really hard to tell. Asking to give me a big five is a nutral, fun and the best way to touch kids.
Here are some English sentences that my students were learning the other day. How often do you use these phrases?
- As soon as Anderson finished talking, he opened his PC.
- The moment Anderson finished talking, he opened his PC.
- No sooner had Anderson finished talking than he opened his PC.
- Hardly had Anderson finished talking when he opened his PC.
- Scarecely had Anderson finished talking before he opened his PC.
How do they sound to you?
