A Season of Giving Dear Members and Friends, We are kicking off the 2014 HXNYC Fund Drive and you will be receiving our annual appeal letter and special eDonation bulletin soon. As most of you already know, tuition only covers part of our school's expenses. We rely on generous donations from local business sponsors and you, parents, families and friends of our children, to help cover the short fall. This is a great opportunity for you to give financial support to our school and support Chinese education for our children. No amount is too small and every dollar will help to keep the school running and maintain an excellent Chinese language and diverse cultural curriculum. To read more, please click here. Please take a moment to give now. Thank you for all you do to support HXNYC! HXNYC Fundraising Committee

拥抱是一种语言 - 鲁鸣new-blue-splash-ink-md

最近,我接受了纽约时报驻京记者 Didi Kirsten Tatlow 的采访。就中国人现在喜欢拥抱,她问了我一些问题。 Didi:. 您写过一本书,内容有包括中国人的习惯包括中国人和外国人在拥抱的区别。 请问,你觉得近几年在这方面有变化吗? 鲁鸣:我的书《缺少拥抱的中国人》是2003年出版的。当时的确中国人很少拥抱,就连夫妻之间都不在公共场合拥抱。家里人也是如此。自我懂事后我都不记得我父母拥抱过我。这本书出版后读过的人大都很喜欢很受欢迎,现在已绝版了。 这几年中国人之间拥抱已很普遍。夫妻情侣在公开场合拥抱到处可见。就连小学生之间也彼此拥抱。昨晚我看真人秀《花儿与少年》里面的“变形记”,那个农村小孩离开城市小学时,同学们跟他道别时都拥抱他。或许这是上节目,但最主要的是很打动人:他们这样做时很自然,一点都不做作,让那孩子很感动,哭成泪人。...
