比牛还牛

看到这则新闻,我们是中国人,比牛还牛:中国游客在华尔街,无语中。

几点想法,
1。看来出国旅游文明教育还是有必要的,教育得还不够啊。
2。报道消息的这位老兄手机相机的效果不行了,好歹把骑上牛的领导脸照清楚,也好发到天涯上来个人肉搜索啊。
3。拜托下回干这事,有人问是国人还是日本人的时候,赶快给人鞠个躬,自认是日本人。
4。靠,最后就想知道,这是国内哪个部门派出来的!@#$%^&

美国非移民签证11月1日起不再受理非电子申请表

网上看到的消息,记下来留个备份
------------------

赴美非移民签证须电子表申请

11月1日起实行,美方拟明年实现全部网上填写网上提交

昨日,从美国使馆新闻文化处获悉,美国将对非移民签证审理制度做出一定调整,从今年11月1日起,将不再受理非电子签证申请表申请移民,全部代之以电子签证申请表(EVAF)。

美国驻华使馆总领事李启明先生表示,目前,在中国公民赴美的非移民签证中,已有90%的人使用电子签证申请表,11月1日起,使用该电子申请表的范围将被扩大到全球所有赴美的因公和因私的非移民申请者。

据悉,该电子表格一共3页,最后一页有一个明显的条形码,申请者填写完毕并确认后,所有已填信息都会储存到该条形码当中,与签证官面谈当天,美方人员会对此条形码进行扫描,所有信息即可显示在电脑上,以便查证。

该电子表格尚无中文版,因此,除了表格上标出的一些申请者的个人信息(比如姓名、住址、工作单位等)需用中文填写以外,其他信息只能用英文填写。据介绍,在填完表格但未最后确认之前,所有信息都可在网上更改并保存。相关人员介绍,电子签证表格的简体中文版正在积极开发中。

李启明表示,预计到明年,美方将争取实现全部非移民申请者在网上填表,并在网上提交,这样会大大节省人力,也会对赴美签证制度的手续大大简化。

具体申请程序

1、登录美国驻华大使馆网页http://beijing.usembassy-china.org.cn/form_details.html,查看电子签证申请表的填写须知并下载该电子表格。

2、当表格在线填写完毕后,须将填好的表格打印出来。

3、在签证面谈当天递交给签证处,且指纹扫描也是必不可少的环节。

赴美非移民签证通过率增19%

在昨日的媒体见面会上,美国使馆总领事李启明简要介绍了2006财年赴美非移民签证的审核情况。据介绍,美国驻中国使领馆共颁发347832个非移民签证,比2005财年增加19%.拒签率只占所有申请人的20%-25%.

赴美的留学生和访问学者签证的通过率比2005财年增加了33%.

美国机场的Wi-Fi指引

好久又没更新了,这块自留地都快长草了,惭愧惭愧。最近忙的连圣诞期间去哪里晚都没安排,估计要等last minute deal了。

最近看到一个旅游网站,是关于美国机场的Wi-Fi指引的,非常详细地列出美国各大机场Wi-Fi Service是否免费,如果收费的话基本价格是多少等等,对外出旅行的朋友是个不错的参考。当然还有一些其它关于Wi-Fi Hotspot的网站,我们都收录在Wi-Fi TravelSuperLink网页中了,有兴趣也可以看 看。

我们的美中机票数据库加了个过滤城市的功能,这样大家用起来更方便些。不过现在可能用的人多了,也吸引了不少无聊之士总是来spam, 搞不懂。

另外读到纽约州留学生出去旅游造成的严重车祸事件,真是让人痛心。大家出去玩,一定要安全第一啊。。。

坐飞机不再是一件好玩的事儿

外出旅游, 坐飞机的情况居多. 然而911, 和最近英国的预谋恐怖事件, 都是针对航空飞行策划的, 从而飞行安检越来越严. 在这样一个世界里, 其实检和不检, 我并没有感觉有更安全, 因为如果是”职业的”, 机场的漏洞总是会被更早发现的, Fox 24的系列电视剧说的就是这类吧. 然而对于普通乘客, 带来的不方便是的的确确的, 然而你能做什么呢? 坐飞机不再是一件好玩的事儿. 想起前几天英国的预谋恐怖事件后安检加强后采访一个女乘客, 问问感想, 她说迟早大家都得脱光光上飞机… 不过她无所尉.

今天看到的一个真实故事, 来自如下新闻:

iPod prompts airport scare in Ottawa

A suspicious package found in an aircraft washroom on a flight from Chicago on Tuesday afternoon brought out Ottawa police canine and bomb-disposal units.

A member of the crew found the package about 4 p.m.

The plane landed safely and was isolated away from the terminal.

Passengers were taken off the plane and questioned by police while experts investigated the ‘package.’

The airport was not closed during the three-hour incident.

Police issued a statement Tuesday evening saying the suspicious package ‘has been identified as an electronic device commonly known as an iPod.’ ”

你可能没觉得有什么, 不过对照当事人的亲自述说, 他如何从一个上厕所不小心把ipod掉到马桶里的倒霉鬼变成了疑似恐怖分子, 这个故事真的让我觉得, 能少坐飞机就少坐吧. 对了, ipod现在还让带上飞机吗?

想试一试你对自制炸弹的警觉性? 不妨看看这个Bomb Or Not网站测试一下.

Amazing Race

今晚Amazing Race的结局, 来自加州的BJ&Tyler这对Hippie最终还是胜了, 因为是反败为胜, 结果看得我手心冒汗.

这一季我看的不多, 到后面几集才开始看, 我觉得BJ&Tyler一路心态很好, 赢了高兴人人都可以做到, 但是落后了还保持乐观不互相埋怨真是不容易. 想想自己最初和LD及小小宝出去玩的时候也会为了小事情(比如找路)着急生气, 弄得大家心情都不好. 后来玩得多了, 也互相了解了脾气, 多了些经验, 心态也平和了, 不再是赶东赶西, 全家也就玩的越来越开心了. 不过我边看边和LD说, 即使这样, 我也不敢说能和LD参加Amazing Race, 还是自己花钱出去玩吧, 毕竟比赛和度假是两回事情, 如果钱没赢到, 还伤了和气, 就真的陪了夫人又折兵了. 哈哈, YY一下, 想参加人也不会请的, 你想啊, 你一着急两个人直嘀咕中文, 老美也不干啊.

另外, Tyler的日文还不赖啊, 起码能蒙事儿啊.

好象哪个台要模仿这个节目, 迎合The Da Vinci Code风气, 办一个满世界找宝的reality show.

ft, 有读了一遍两人的介绍, 看来很牛啊, BJ竟然是Harvard毕业的, 两人都满世界乱转的, 另外学语言看来交女朋友是捷径啊, 因为有动力嘛. ;)

BJ is a graduate of Harvard University, while Tyler graduated from UC Santa Cruz after completing two semesters abroad–one in Hungary, the other in South Africa. Both have traveled the world extensively and speak several languages including Spanish and Japanese.

Both BJ & Tyler share a love of adventure, travel, and good times. After graduating from college, BJ moved to California to pursue surfing, karate and frisbee. Meanwhile, Tyler fell in love with a Japanese girl and decided to impress her by walking the 2000-mile length of Japan.

How Much for That Aisle Seat?

Time.com上讲到越来越多破产的航空公司绞尽脑汁想办法赚钱, 主意渐渐打到一些乘客预料不到的地方, 比如Northwest Airlines开始对Aisle Seat(过道旁的座位)多收$15了, AA开始对它的象猫食一样的花生米收钱了, Air Canada 每个枕头和毛毯要付$2啦, 哎, 真的节省这些能给它们带来巨大的收益吗? 还是更进一步让乘客没了好印象? 航空公司还是多花点时间看看自身企业内部如何开源节流吧.

如果老美的航空公司真的想欧洲一些廉价航空公司一样运营, 降低票价, 飞机的主要目的就是按时安全地将乘客运到目的地, 我是没意见的, 我一向不愿意把”奢侈”花在飞机上, 车上什么的, 不过你要是一面涨机票钱, 一面砍这些微不足道的方便, 难道真的有一天会象这个读者提出的建议那样吗?

Here are some more ideas that would help airlines cut costs:

1. Charge for armrest usage. When you get to your seat, the armrests are locked in the upright position. Want to use them? That’ll be $5 a pop.

2. Charge for the oxygen. Remove all the air from the cabin, and give everyone a mask, which gets an independent oxygen feed. Want to keep breathing? Gotta swipe your credit card every five minutes.

3. Make everyone stand. Put posts in the cabin that people can strap themselves to during takeoff and landing. This way you could increase cabin capacity by at least 50 percent.

4. Better yet, sedate everyone. Then you can stack ‘em like sardines.

Sunglasses put jet lag in shade

BBC的一篇文章, 科学家发现长途飞行的时候, 带太阳镜对调解生物钟, 调整时差有帮助.

Passengers on long-haul flights are being urged to wear sunglasses in a bid to reduce the effects of jet lag.

Scientists in Edinburgh have found that people can adjust their body clocks when travelling to different time zones by altering their light patterns.

不过文章也说了, 恐怕你戴着大眼镜过关的时候, 移民局的官员不答应. 依我看, 不光是移民局的官员, 你要是在机舱里像模像样的带个大黑超, 没准你旁边的乘客就把你当成嫌疑分子给举报了. 所以依我说, 还不如买的海盗似的眼罩蒙起眼来睡觉对时差的调整更有帮助.

更新: 看来还有不少人关注jet lag, 我有发现Brithsh Airways还有一个网页, Jet lag Advisor, 专门给你出注意如何倒时差的, 你输入你的目的地和你的居住地时差, 他就给出一个时间调整的推荐, 主要也是说光线对时差的影响, 有兴趣不妨试一下?

10 Wonders of the New China

Business Week 的一篇文章中谈到了中国的新“十大奇迹”(10 wonders),其实是指建筑方面的。常常看到有外国游客访问中国,感慨整个中国仿佛是一个巨大的工地,日新月异的城市建设也吸引了世界顶级的建筑师来到中国扬名立万,文章中提到的建筑有些是为了即将举办的奥运,有些是地方的特色建筑。然而就象一些评论中指出的那样,新建筑如何和整个城市景观融为一体,如何考虑环境,生态,维护等方方面面的问题还是值得更深一步考虑的。我更希望的是希望这些建筑不是花钱搞面子工程,中国的崛起不是靠几大新建筑就可以世界瞩目的,相比之下许多踏踏实实的工作更需要关注。

喜欢每次回国,城市变得更美,但更希望的是每个平常人都有一种平和从容的生活心态。

幻想去太空旅游的朋友,你实现梦想的机会又进了一步,因为美国宇航局和空军已经联手和美国能源部的科学家一起设计被称为 Z Machine 的设备,根据科学家的理论,可以产生强大磁场,以至于将航天飞机送入其它多维空间,从而实现三小时到火星的星际旅行。怎么样,听起来象好莱坞的科幻片所描述的样子吧。

Cancun After Hurricane Wilma

Cancun After Hurricane Wilma
Cancun旅馆重灾区

今年的飓风有些邪了, 先是Katrina吹的新奥尔良水淹金山, 接着Rita吹的休斯敦万人空巷, 而随后而来的飓风Wilma则是正面登临坎昆(Cancun), 横扫尤卡坦(Yucatan)半岛, 又来个回马枪, 吹了个迈阿密(Miami)南部七零八落. 再往后的飓风连名字都用光了, 只好用希腊字母叫做飓风Alpha了.

圣诞节的全家出游安排的是去Cancun的, 原来没想到会这么严重, 直到同事开玩笑说你去Cancun住的旅馆还在不在时, 才提醒我上网看看消息, 结果发现情况还真的很糟糕. 因为Wilma是正面袭击Cancun 和Cozemel, 而且登陆时强度很大, 造成整个Cozemel和Cancun的酒店,度假屋等损坏严重, 原本漂亮的沙滩全部被冲毁, 市中心更是一片狼籍. 好在当地对飓风袭击有所防备, 人员伤亡不大, 不过飓风来临前来不及撤退的二万多名游客被迫在当地的避难所度过多日, 无水无电, 好好的假日旅行变成了避难旅行, 难怪大多数人都怨声载道, 逃出cancun的时候都长舒一口气. 看看google news, 游客的心声都是这样的: “It has been like hell, We were either praying or crying.” “Oh, my God, I can’t wait. I just want to go home,” “It was terrible. It was an absolute hell-hole.” 平心静气而言, 墨西哥政府的反应还是满快的, 飓风过后没多久军队就到了, 少量的抢劫事件也很快平息, 也没有发生针对外国游客的强掠事件, 大多数游客对当地的居民对他们的帮助还是很感谢的. 只不过从天堂到地狱的反差过大, 好多游客难以承受而已.

当地政府估计, 飓风Wilma对Cancun的旅游业伤害极大, 而Cancun的旅游收入又占墨西哥整个旅游收入的一半以上. 面临即将来临的传统旅游旺季Thanksgiving & Christmas, 旺季很有可能成为淡季. 我暗自庆幸还好没有选择感恩节去, 否则真个要考虑赔钱取消旅程了. 离我们正式出发还有两个月的时间, 希望能尽可能恢复起来吧. 另外一个相对的好消息就是Cancun南边的Tulum一带影响不大, 至少我们圣诞夜的旅馆还是有着落的.

上网浏览当地的消息, 希望能找到飓风后的照片, 果然有当地人将Cancun旅馆区的照片贴在论坛中, Steve and Brant drive the Hotel Zone, 恐怕是最真实的现场报道了. 旅馆的破坏有的严重有的轻微, 不知道是由于建筑结构的不同, 还是方位的差别. 竟然看到了自己要住的旅馆照片了, 虽然是远景看不太仔细, 不过好象属于不很严重的一类. 总之我要好好重新打算一下, 多跑跑没有被飓风侵袭的地方了. 另外Cancun的旅馆和机票价格都大幅下调, 现在定同样的旅馆竟然比我Hotwire上Bid都要便宜了, 我和Hotwire探讨了一下它的low price guarantee, 结果它家的政策竟然是定好旅馆72小时之内才给match, 太不爽了. 不过倒有朋友乘机想拿个好deal去cancun一游了.

又及: 给LD看我们旅馆的照片, 说房子没倒, 就是被吹歪了, 沙滩也吹没了, LD笑嘻嘻的说, 房子歪了沙滩没了都没关系, 只要海里的鱼还在就行, 我们是去看鱼的. 哈哈, 我喜欢. 有份独特的经历没什么不好, 我倒有些希望去看看飓风之后的Cancun, 有兴趣的朋友两个月后等我的现场报道吧.

现在是国内的十一长假期间, 俗称“黄金周”,据说这制度始于1999年, “当初政府的用意是启动消费和刺激内需”,所以每年的农历春节、五一和十一都各有长达一周的放假时间, 供老百姓集中时间访亲串友举家出游, 所以又称为旅游黄金周.

太空旅行

Gregory Olsen & His Grandson
旅游出发之前的Olsen和孙子告别

10月1日, 美国的百万富翁兼科学家Gregory Olsen乘坐俄罗斯联盟号飞船开始了他为期10天的太空旅游, 这段旅行, 路上来回要各自跑两天, 在国际空间站呆六天, 总的来说行程设计的不错. 唯一遗憾的是没有好deal, 因为没有竞争, 所以俄罗斯宇航局关于这十天旅行的一口价是2000万美元. 不过美国的NASA已经对俄罗斯宇航局这种做生意的方式表示了酸葡萄心理.

另类”牛人”

八阕上读到一则新闻, 讲的是”英国著名的裸体徒步者斯蒂芬·高夫在第二次试图横穿全国时,因有伤风化罪被苏格兰爱丁堡法院判刑两周. 现年46岁的高夫来自英国南部海岸的伯恩茅斯,曾在2003至2004年间,从英国西南部的兰兹角“裸奔”1363公里到苏格兰。2005年6月,高夫携女友沿着原来的路线又开始第二次“裸奔”。9月1日,高夫在路经爱丁堡南部地区时被当地警方逮个正着。”

呵呵, 斯蒂芬这种喜欢远足穿越的精神是值得赞赏的, 不过裸体远足就有些另类了. 从技术角度讲, 适当的衣服绝对帮助保暖御寒, 更有利于长时间的户外运动. 从视觉角度讲, 绝大多数人还是穿一点比什么都不穿好看的多. 不过也许斯蒂芬这类天体爱好者追求的就是这种另类的效果了. 我猜, 横穿英国算不上太大的挑战, 能上新闻报道的可能性也不大, 不过裸奔一下, 自然就吸引了好多眼球了.
