A song in Mandarin: Friend, Don’t cry 朋友别哭 吕方

朋友别哭 吕方 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT2oBMEhMnc

Lyrics:

有沒有一扇窗 能讓你不絕望 看一看花花世界 原來像夢一場 有人哭 有人笑 有人輸有人老 到結局 還不是一樣

朋友別哭 我依然是你心靈的歸宿 朋友別哭 要相信自己的路 紅塵中有太多 茫然痴心的追逐 你的苦 我也有感觸

有沒有一種愛 能讓你不受傷 這些年 堆積多少對你的知心話 這麼酒醒不了 什麼痛忘不掉 向前走 就不可能回頭望

朋友別哭 我依然是你心靈的歸宿 朋友別哭 要相信自己的路 紅塵中有太多 茫然痴心的追逐 你的苦 我也有感觸

朋友別哭 我一直在你心靈最深處 朋友別哭 我陪你就不孤獨 人海中難得有 幾個真正的朋友 這份情請 你不要不在乎 人海中難得有 幾個真正的朋友 這份情請 你不要不在 乎

Tori Kelly – Colors Of The Wind

So beautiful; “How high will the sycamore grow If you cut it down, then you’ll never know.” … “You can own the Earth and still All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind.”

Tori Kelly – Colors Of The Wind https://youtu.be/XpIMGamlvwg

Lyrics:
You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
How high will the sycamore grow If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the Earth and still All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

Music for the lonely, exhausted, in pain, deserted

今年,二零一八年, 十二月十五日於加州聖地牙哥家聽韓德爾的彌賽亞聖歌及以下的聖誕節於挪威的歌唱,我似乎悟到原來宗教能給孤單、疾苦、微弱、無助、被遺/棄的人一些心靈的扶助、解脫及寄望。

On December 15, 2018 in San Diego, California home, I become realizing that the religious belief provides a shelter, sanctuary and healing.

Silent Night lyrics:

Silent night, holy night
All is calm and all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace, ooh

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories streams from heaven afar

Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace, oh
Sleep in heavenly peace


Handel – Messiah always for my Christmas celebration

My Christmas music celebration usually starts around Thanksgiving Day. I always want to listen to the full version of Handel’s Messiah many many times during this wonderful Christmas season, and my spirit is often lifted by this magical music piece.  The following is a list of web page links for the classical music recordings of Handel’s Messiah.

. Handel – Messiah – by London Philharmonic (Complete Concerto/Full) : https://youtu.be/71NCzuDNUcg

. Messiah – A Sacred Oratorio, Handel – London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Colin Davis https://youtu.be/ZuGSOkYWfDQ

. Handel Messiah The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge: https://youtu.be/SCLrle4T9MI?t=78

Quote from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_(Handel) Messiah (HWV 56)[1][n 1] is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the Coverdale Psalter, the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere nearly a year later. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.

Handel’s reputation in England, where he had lived since 1712, had been established through his compositions of Italian opera. He turned to English oratorio in the 1730s in response to changes in public taste; Messiah was his sixth work in this genre. Although its structure resembles that of opera, it is not in dramatic form; there are no impersonations of characters and no direct speech. Instead, Jennens’s text is an extended reflection on Jesus as the Messiah called Christ. The text begins in Part I with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only “scene” taken from the Gospels. In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the “Hallelujah” chorus. In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ’s glorification in heaven.

Handel wrote Messiah for modest vocal and instrumental forces, with optional settings for many of the individual numbers. In the years after his death, the work was adapted for performance on a much larger scale, with giant orchestras and choirs. In other efforts to update it, its orchestration was revised and amplified by (among others) Mozart (Der Messias). In the late 20th and early 21st centuries the trend has been towards reproducing a greater fidelity to Handel’s original intentions, although “big Messiah” productions continue to be mounted. A near-complete version was issued on 78 rpm discs in 1928; since then the work has been recorded many times.

II Larghetto | Arthur Rubinstein 3) a very exciting recording: Beethoven – 5th Piano Concerto ‘Emperor’ (Zimerman, Bernstein, Wiener Philharmoniker) 4) To quiet my mind: “The second movement of Dvořák Symphony No. 9 – “From the New World” symphony 5) Edvard Grieg – Piano Concerto II.

Specials: Click the following link for the video of Walk Beside Me (Live In Concert From The Round Room At The Mansion House, Dublin, Ireland)  Quote: “… song was written by Mutt Lange. Based on a quote by Albert Camus, French philosopher “Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.””

A friend gave me, probably in year 2006, a deck of 365 cards titled “Spirit Lifters: Inspirational thoughts for each day of the year”.  I continue to read the daily quote since then.  A friend of mine, Gwen Jorgensen, mentioned to me on April 29, 2016 that I might consider to post the daily quote for sharing; so I start here.

(Aside: I’m a buddhist, but I appreciate this prayer said in Mother Teresa’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in 1979 quoted in the following): The entire Acceptance speech can be found here http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/religion-and-philosophy/social-justice/mother-teresas-nobel-peace-prize-acceptance-speech.html#.V3cHUlYemFg.facebook

Mind calming song in Mandarin: Tzu Chi song: Love and compassion are in my prayer. Also《慈濟歌曲》誠心齋戒(十遍)Tzu Chi’s prayer

Mother Teresa said: The poor people are very great people. They can teach us so many beautiful things.

Lord, make a channel of Thy peace
that, where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that, where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that, where there is error, I may bring truth;
that, where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that, where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that, where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that, where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted,
to understand than to be understood;
to love than to be loved;
for it is by forgetting self that one finds;
it is forgiving that one is forgiven;
it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.

– St. Francis of Assisi

About NoScript extension for Firefox web browser

Learning something new today from “NoScript guide for Firefox 57+ by Martin Brinkmann on August 13, 2018 on https://www.ghacks.net/2018/08/13/noscript-guide-for-firefox-57/
Quote:

. Terminology:

Script — Any type of script the site attempts to execute. Object — The HTML object tag. Media — Media elements. Frame — Frames that the site attempts to load.Font — Font elements. WebGL — WebGL elements.Fetch — requests that use fetch APIs.

. Using NoScript
Understanding how NoScript trust levels work is essential to using the extension to its fullest potential.
NoScript indicates blocked items in its icon when you load sites in the Firefox browser. A click on the icon displays the connections the extension recognized and trust levels for each site. Note that these may not be all connections a site makes. Since you don’t allow the execution of scripts by default, sites may not be able to initiate all third-party connections right away.
If you allow scripts to run on the main domain, you may notice that it attempts to make additional connections when those get loaded.
Tip: Hover over any domain listed by NoScript and click on it to open a page that is full of links to privacy and security services only to display information about the domain.
It may not be necessary to make any changes to trust levels if the site functions properly. You may notice however that some features may not work properly on first connect.
Since scripts and other elements are blocked by default, you may notice all sorts of issues related to that. Sites use scripts and other elements for a variety of things, from verifying form submissions and playing videos to often unwanted things such as advertisement or tracking.
Changing a domain’s trust level to “trusted” or “temporarily trusted” allows it to load additional elements whereas a trust level of “untrusted” prevents even more elements.
Note that trusted and untrusted are permanent changes that remain available.
Troubleshooting a site comes into play when you notice that site functionality is not available and suspect it is because of the protections that NoScript provides.
You have a couple of options to deal with the issue. You could temporarily allow a domain or use the custom trust level to set permissions individually for elements.

Learning about Thunderbolt 3, USB-C, USB 3.1 2nd Gen. connections

Learning about Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connections from “USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3: One port to connect them all” on https://www.cnet.com/how-to/usb-type-c-thunderbolt-3-one-cable-to-connect-them-all/
Quote:
. Here’s how Thunderbolt 3 is different from its predecessors:
The Mini DisplayPort connection type has been ditched in favor of a USB-C connection type.All Thunderbolt 3 cables will work as USB-C cables.All USB-C cables will work as Thunderbolt 3 cables as long as they are good quality cables.Thunderbolt 3 has a top data transfer speed of 40Gbps as long as the cable is 0.5m (1.6 ft.) or shorter.For 1m (3.2 ft.) or longer cables, Thunderbolt 3 supports passive (cheaper) ones that have a top speed of 20Gbps, and active cables (more expensive) that retain the 40Gbps speed.Thunderbolt 3 is backward-compatible with earlier versions of Thunderbolt, but due to the new port type, adapters are required to use legacy Thunderbolt devices.Any USB-C device (like a Google Pixel) plugged into a Thunderbolt 3 port will function normally.Since Thunderbolt 3 devices use discrete Thunderbolt chips to function, they will not function if plugged into a USB-C port.All versions of Thunderbolt allow for daisy-chaining up to six devices together to a host and in addition to data, can also carry Hi-Def video and audio signals.
. USB 3.1 (sometimes refereed to as USB 3.1 Gen 2., [or now called SuperSpeed+ or SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps)): Released on July 26, 2013, USB 3.1 doubles the speed of USB 3.0 to 10Gbps (now called SuperSpeed+ or SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps), making it as fast as the original Thunderbolt standard. USB 3.1 is backward-compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. USB 3.1 has three power profiles (according to USB Power Delivery Specification), and allows larger devices to draw power from a host: up to 2A at 5V (for a power consumption of up to 10W), and optionally up to 5A at either 12V (60W) or 20V (100W). The first USB 3.1 products are expected to be available in late 2016, and will mostly use USB Type-C design.

Quote from “Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Protein”

I was asking about what signs could indicate protein deficiency yesterday, 4/7/2019, and the daily mail from Time magazine appears in my email Inbox today.
Quote from “Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Protein” on https://www.webmd.com/diet/ss/slideshow-not-enough-protein-signs?ecd=wnl_chl_040719_REMAIL&ctr=wnl-chl-040719-REMAIL_nsl-Bodymodule_Position2&mb=WYQVza0sEXokrko1%40IKOxShonS%2fH3cwyXPseqP5xtN0%3d:
. How Much [protein] Do You Need? You should get a minimum of 10% of your daily calories from protein. (For a target of grams, multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36.) And you want it from a variety of sources throughout the day: A tub of low-fat Greek yogurt for breakfast has about 20 grams; a serving of skinless chicken breast at lunch, about 25 grams; and a cup of black beans in your dinner, about 15 grams. Your body breaks down and reuses the protein in many ways.
. Swelling One of the most common signs that you’re not getting enough protein is swelling (also called edema), especially in your abdomen, legs, feet, and hands. A possible explanation: The proteins that circulate in your blood — albumin, in particular — help keep fluid from building up in your tissues. But many things can cause edema, so be sure to check with your doctor in case it’s more serious.
. Mood Changes. Hair, Nail, and Skin Problems. Weakness and Fatigue. Hunger. Slow-Healing Injuries: People who are low on protein often find their cuts and scrapes take longer to get better. The same seems to be true of sprains and other exercise-related mishaps. It could be another effect of your body not making enough collagen. It’s found in connective tissues as well as your skin. To make blood clot, you need proteins, too.
. Getting or Staying Sick. Who Might Come Up Short? Most Americans get plenty of protein. People who don’t get enough usually have an overall poor diet. Elderly people and people with cancer may have trouble eating as much protein as they need.
. What About Athletes? If you exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet, you’re probably fine. But serious athletes with strenuous training schedules do need more protein — about twice as much as the average person, or roughly 0.5-1 gram of protein for every pound of body weight each day. Don’t overdo it though. Too much protein can also cause problems.

Steps to manually uninstall Paragon NTFS for macOS

So I learn from “How to Uninstall Paragon NTFS for macOS” on https://nektony.com/how-to/uninstall-paragon-ntfs-for-macos
Quote of the manual un-installation method:
Paragon NTFS for Mac is a tool that helps you to write, edit, copy and delete files on Microsoft NTFS-formatted drives connected to your Mac.Paragon NTFS application installs its pane to System Preferences, so it is not enough to drop the app to Trash to remove it correctly.

. Uninstall Paragon NTFS for Mac manually
Like most Mac users do, you may delete Paragon NTFS following these steps: go to the Applications folder in Finder → find Paragon NTFS for Mac 15.app → make a right-click and select Move to Trash → then, Empty Trash.
However, advanced users know that any application creates service files for its proper work on a Mac. Likely, you have heard or read about caches and logs. These types, in addition to other files, are the temporary helpers of an application. So, the deletion of the .app file is not enough for the application’s entire removal from your Mac. Furthermore, the temporary service files are useless without the application on your Mac. So you have to find all the leftovers of Paragon NTFS and remove them.The junk files are usually stored in the hidden Library folder. Follow these steps to see the contents of the Library folder:
Open Finder.Click Go in the toolbar and select Go to Folder in the drop-down menu.Type ~/Library in the appeared window and click Go.Type paragon in the search field in the corner of the window and hit Enter. Next, you will see all the files and folders that relate to Paragon NTFS. Select these items, move them to the Trash, and then empty the Trash.
You should also check your Mac’s System Preferences. Some applications create a System Preference pane (an application icon) on your Mac by default. Paragon NTFS is one of them. So, open System Preferences → find Paragon NTFS for Mac icon → make a right-click and Remove “NTFS for Mac” Preference Pane.
Then you should navigate and remove Paragon NTFS cache files stored in ~/Library/Caches, application support files, crash reports, preferences files, remove them as well.

Quote「浮生千山路」歌詞:

小溪春深處 
秦觀《好事近》:春路雨添花,花動一山春色。行到小溪深處,有黃鸝千百。飛雲當面化龍蛇,夭矯轉空碧。醉臥古藤陰下,了不知南北。

萬千碧柳蔭  
周邦彥《蘭陵王》:柳蔭直,煙裡絲絲弄碧。隋堤上,曾見幾番,拂水飄綿送行色。登臨望故國,誰識?京華倦客?長亭路,年來歲去,應折柔條過千尺。閒尋舊踪跡,又酒趁哀弦,燈映離席。梨花榆火催寒食。愁一箭風快,半篙波暖,回頭迢遞便數驛,望人在天北。淒側,恨堆積,漸別浦縈迴,津堠岑寂。斜陽冉冉春無極,記月榭攜手,露橋聞笛,沈思前事,似夢裡,淚暗滴。

不記來時路
秦觀《點絳唇》:醉漾輕舟,信流引到花深處。塵緣相誤,無計花間住。煙水茫茫,千里斜陽暮。山無數,亂紅如雨,不記來時路。

心托明月
齊瀚《樂府詩集卷四十二相和歌辭長門怨》:煢煢孤思逼,寂寂長門夕。妾妒亦非深,君恩那不惜。攜琴就玉階,調悲聲未諧。將心托明月,流影入君懷。

誰家今夜扁舟子
張若虛《春江花月夜》:誰家今夜扁舟子?何處相思明月樓。

長溝流月去
陳與義《臨江仙》:憶昔午橋橋上飲,坐中多是豪英。長溝流月去無聲。杏花疏影裡,吹笛到天明。二十馀年如一夢,此身雖在堪驚。閒登小閣看新晴。古今多少事,漁唱起三更。

煙樹滿晴川
韋應物《登寶意寺上方舊遊》 :翠嶺香台出半天,萬家煙樹滿晴川。諸僧近住不相識,坐聽微鐘記往年。

獨立人無語
晏幾道《臨江仙》夢後樓台高鎖,酒醒簾幕低垂。去年春恨卻來時。落花人獨立,微雨燕雙飛。記得小蘋初見,兩重心字羅衣,琵琶弦上說相思。當時明月在,曾照彩雲歸。

驀然回首
辛棄疾《青玉案》:東風夜放花千樹,更吹落、星如雨。寶馬雕車香滿路。鳳簫聲動,玉壺光轉,一夜魚龍舞。蛾兒雪柳黃金縷,笑語盈盈暗香去。眾裡尋他千百度。驀然回首,那人卻在,燈火闌珊處。

紅塵猶有未歸
人徐熥《寄弟》:春風送客翻愁客,客路逢春不當春。寄語鶯聲休便老,天涯猶有未歸人。

春遲遲燕子天涯
《詩經•小雅•出車》 :……春日遲遲,卉木萋萋。倉庚喈喈,采蘩祁祁……張炎《清平樂》:採芳人杳,頓覺遊情少。客裡看春多草草,總被詩愁分了。去年燕子天涯,今年燕子誰家?三月休聽夜雨,如今不是催花。

草萋萋少年人老
楚辭淮南小山《招隱士》:王孫遊兮不歸,春草生兮萋萋。唐•崔顥《黃鶴樓》“晴川歷歷漢陽樹,芳草萋萋鸚鵡洲

水悠悠繁華已過了 人間咫尺千山路
王維《終南別業》中歲頗好道,晚家南山陲。興來每獨往,勝事空自知。行到水窮處,坐看雲起時。偶然值林叟,談笑無還期

行到水窮處 坐看雲起時 
維《終南別業》中歲頗好道,晚家南山陲。興來每獨往,勝事空自知。 行到水窮處,坐看雲起時。偶然值林叟,談笑無還期

涼淨風恬 
鄭板橋《山市晴嵐》雨淨又風恬,山翠新添。薰蒸上接蔚藍天。惹得王孫芳草色,醞釀春田。 朝景尚拖煙,日午澄鮮。小橋山店倍增妍。近到略無些色相,遠望依然。

涼淨風恬 人間依舊 細數浮生千萬緒
晏殊《木蘭花》:燕鴻過後鶯歸去,細算浮生千萬緒

Dance with me please. A song called Lady Flower 齊豫《女人花》

Dance with me please. 齊豫《女人花》Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqxf49kbV90

Lyrics in Traditional Chinese (作詞:李安修    作曲:陳耀川):

我有花一朵 種在我心中 含苞待放意幽幽
朝朝與暮暮 我切切地等候 有心的人來入夢

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
只盼望 有一雙溫暖手 能撫慰 我內心的寂寞

我有花一朵 花香滿枝頭 誰來真心尋芳蹤
花開不多時啊堪折直須折 女人如花花似夢

我有花一朵 長在我心中 真情真愛無人懂
遍地的野草已佔滿了山坡 孤芳自賞最心痛

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
只盼望 有一雙溫柔手 能撫慰 我內心的寂寞

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
若是你 聞過了花香濃 別問我 花兒是為誰紅

愛過知情重 醉過知酒濃 花開花謝終是空
緣份不停留 像春風來又走 女人如花花似夢
緣份不停留 像春風來又走 女人如花花似夢 女人如花花似夢

Lyrics:

齊豫-祝我幸福+雪落下的聲音 祝我幸福 作詞:施立 作曲:陳小霞 雪落下的聲音 作詞:于正 作曲:陸虎 滿天星星在眨眼 他陪在我身邊 輕聲細語溫柔的眼 看著我的臉 一枚戒指在我眼前 是他的諾言 愛我永遠 山頂上的微風吹 心跟著四處飛 為了什麽掉眼淚 夜色那麽美 一段回憶翻箱倒櫃 跟著我在追 想的是誰 我很幸福 真的幸福 卻渴望得到你的祝福 從今以後 牽他的手 心為何逗留 我很快樂 真的快樂 卻還是覺得依依不捨 他的肩膀 給我力量 才能將你放 我慢慢地聽 雪落下的聲音 閉著眼睛幻想它不會停 你沒辦法靠近 絕不是太薄情 只是貪戀窗外好風景 我慢慢地品 雪落下的聲音 仿佛是你貼著我叫卿卿 睜開了眼睛 漫天的雪無情 誰來賠這一生好光景 我很幸福 真的幸福 卻渴望得到你的祝福 從今以後 牽他的手 心為何逗留 我很快樂 真的快樂 卻還是覺得依依不捨 他的肩膀 給我力量 才能將你放 好想聽到你說 祝你幸福 只想聽到你說 祝你幸福
