Shame on you ABC. Shame on you Jimmy Kimmel. Don’t hide behind a child, responsible for your mistake.

During the October 16, 2013 episode, Kimmel held the “Kids Table” segment to invite several 6-7 year old children to discuss the US debt problem: “We owe the Chinese a lot of money, 1.3 trillion dollars”. A boy immediately suggested to “kill everyone in China.” This comment elicited some laughter from the audience and Kimmel laughed it off and commented “that’s an interesting idea.” He later asked “should we allow the Chinese to live?” The boy stuck to his answer.[21] This show has drawn ire from offended Asian Americans and Chinese netizens. Online poll shows 90% of Chinese were angered, saddened or on guard about this show.[22] Overseas Chinese communities and domestic Chinese citizens alike have rallied together and created a petition to the White House and a campaign on Facebook[23] boycotting Kimmel’s decision to air the comment on his show and asking that the show be investigated for its promotion of genocide and racism against the Chinese. The petition demanded that ABC should “cut the show and issue a formal apology.” [24] The petitioner argued that “[t]he kids might not know any better. However, Jimmy Kimmel and ABC’s management are adults. They had a choice not to air this racist program, which promotes racial hatred.”[25] Meanwhile, not all viewers of the parody found it objectionable. Gu Xiaoming, a professor at the School of Humanities at Fudan University, believed that some were reading too much into comments from a child, and the show reflected Americans’ anxiety on the debt crisis to some extent.[26] The clip of this segment has since been removed from Kimmel’s YouTube account, but can still be seen when viewing the entire episode.[27] On November 7, 2013, the White House petition has drawn more than 100,000 signatures.[28][29] The White House is expected to review the filing and issue some sort of public response for petitions that gather enough support to pass the 100,000 mark.[30] With respect to the petition, White House spokesman said “Every petition that crosses the threshold will be reviewed by the appropriate staff and receive a response”.[31]

ABC has first sent an apology letter to the 80-20 Initiative, an organisation promoting equal opportunities for Asian Americans, for allowing the comment “Kill everyone in China” to air. This letter, signed by ABC senior executives, said “We would never purposefully broadcast anything to upset the Chinese community, Asian community, anyone of Chinese descent or any community at large. Our objective is to entertain.” This letter also said that ABC had removed the controversial comment from all media platforms and would remove it from future airing.[32][33] The chairman of the 80-20 Initiative, S.B. Woo, lodged the protest with ABC after he found out this segment was actually not live, and he considered this apology not a victory at all and could be more satisfactory for Asian-American communities.[34] During the October 28, 2013 episode of this night show, Kimmel addressed this issue, stating that “I thought it was obvious that I didn’t agree with that statement, but apparently it wasn’t, so I just wanted to say, I’m sorry, I apologize.”[35][36]

On October 28, 2013, Asian Americans marched through the streets of San Francisco protesting about Kimmel’s show and his condoning of killing. They gathered around ABC headquarters and demanded a more elaborate apology and that an ABC representative come receive letters of protest.[37][38] On Nov 1, 2013, Chinese American demonstrators, mainly from Houston, gathered outside ABC’s local office building to protest the offensive skit the show aired “kill everyone in China”. The crowds shouted slogans like “Shame on ABC”, “Boycott ABC”, “Fire Kimmel”, referring to Jimmy Kimmel.[39] However, protesters are still not satisfied with ABC’s apology, organizing a nationwide protest against ABC on November 9 in 27 cities, including a rally outside ABC’s headquarters in Burbank.[40]

 

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

On December 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members in a mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the village of Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut.[5][6] Before driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother Nancy at their Newtown home.[8][10][11] As first responders arrived, he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.

It was the second deadliest mass shooting by a single person in American history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, and the second deadliest mass murder at a U.S. elementary school, after the 1927 Bath School bombings in Michigan.[12][13]

The shootings prompted renewed debate about gun control in the United States, and a proposal for new legislation banning the sale and manufacture of certain types of semi-automatic firearms and magazines with more than ten rounds of ammunition.[14]

During the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, two pressure cooker bombs exploded at 2:49 pm EDT (18:49 UTC), killing 3 people and injuring an estimated 264 others.[3] The bombs exploded about 13 seconds and 210 yards (190 m) apart, near the finish line on Boylston Street.[2][8] The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) took over the investigation, and on April 18, released photographs and surveillance video of two suspects.[9][10][11] The suspects were identified later that day as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Shortly after the FBI released the images, the suspects allegedly killed an MIT police officercarjacked an SUV, and initiated an exchange of gunfire with the police in Watertown, Massachusetts. During the firefight, an MBTA police officer was injured but survived, in spite of severe blood loss. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was run over by his brother Dzhokhar, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was injured but escaped. An unprecedented manhunt ensued on April 19, with thousands of law enforcement officers searching a 20-block area of Watertown.[12]

During the manhunt, the authorities asked residents of Watertown and surrounding areas, including Boston, to stay indoors, and the public transportation system and most businesses and public institutions were shut down, resulting in a deserted urban environment of historic size and duration.[13][14] At around 7 pm, shortly after the “shelter-in-place” advisory was rescinded, a Watertown resident discovered the suspect hiding in a boat in his back yard. Dzhokhar was arrested and taken to a hospital shortly thereafter.[15]

Perpetrator Seung-Hui Cho

The Virginia Tech massacre was a school shooting that took place on April 16, 2007, on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia, United States. Seung-Hui Cho, a senior at Virginia Tech, shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 others in two separate attacks, approximately two hours apart, before committing suicide (another six people were injured escaping from classroom windows).[1][2] The massacre is the deadliest shooting incident by a single gunman in U.S. history.[3] It was the worst act of mass murder of college students since Syracuse University lost 35 students in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103,[4] and the second-deadliest act of mass murder at a U.S. school campus, behind the Bath School disaster of 1927.

Cho had previously been diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder. During much of his middle school and high school years, he received therapy and special education support. After graduating from high school, Cho enrolled at Virginia Tech. Because of federal privacy laws, Virginia Tech was unaware of Cho’s previous diagnosis or the accommodations he had been granted at school. In 2005, Cho was accused of stalking two female students. After an investigation, a Virginia special justice declared Cho mentally ill and ordered him to attend treatment.[5] Lucinda Roy, a professor and former chairwoman of the English department, had asked Cho to seek counseling.[6] Cho’s mother turned to her church for help.[7]

The attacks received international media coverage and drew widespread criticism of U.S. gun culture.[8] It sparked intense debate about gun violencegun laws, gaps in the U.S. system for treating mental health issues, the perpetrator’s state of mind, the responsibility of college administrations,[9] privacy laws, journalism ethics, and other issues. Television news organizations that aired portions of the killer’s multimedia manifesto were criticized by victims’ families, Virginia law enforcement officials, and the American Psychiatric Association.[10][11]

The massacre prompted the state of Virginia to close legal loopholes that had previously allowed Cho, an individual adjudicated as mentally unsound, to purchase handguns without detection by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). It also led to passage of the first major federal gun control measure in more than 13 years. The law strengthening the NICS was signed by President George W. Bush on January 5, 2008.[12]

The Virginia Tech Review Panel, a state-appointed body assigned to review the incident, criticized Virginia Tech administrators for failing to take action that might have reduced the number of casualties. The panel’s report also reviewed gun laws and pointed out gaps in mental health care as well as privacy laws that left Cho’s deteriorating condition in college untreated.[1]

 

During an initial interrogation in the hospital, Dzhokhar—who was arrested not having been read his Miranda rights—said Tamerlan was the mastermind. He said they were motivated by extremist Islamist beliefs and the wars in Iraq andAfghanistan, and that they were self-radicalized and unconnected to any outside terrorist groups, but that they had learned how to build explosive devices from an online magazine of the al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen.[16] He said that he and his brother had decided after the Boston bombings to travel to New York City to bomb Times Square. Dzhokhar was charged on April 22, while still in the hospital, with use of a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death.[5][17] He has pleaded not guilty to 30 total charges.

你是勇敢的,我是脆弱的

9月9日,新学期第一天。

你开心的去了新学校,因为有你喜欢的堂哥和你一起去。你稍微有点不开心,因为你们不在一个班。放学时你不要我接你,你想要和姑妈一起回家,你以为可以和上个星期一样,去playgroud玩。我们回家后,你也就开心的在家和堂哥玩乐。

9月10号,放学时我去接你。我要送你去课后学校,不让你和堂哥在学校的playgroud玩,你哭得撕心裂肺,直跳脚。我狠心的拉走你,却不忍心直接送你去课后学校。 陪你在playgroud坐了一会儿,安抚了你,还是送你去了课后学校。 令放学前堂哥和爸爸妈妈也去参观课后学校,你不能和他们一起离开,你又伤心的哭了。还好我正好去接你,你可以和堂哥一起回家,有顺路去了playgroud,你终于开心了点。可是你太累了,早上8点到晚上7点。一回家你就睡着了。

9月11号,你早上6点多起来,补好作业,吃了麦片。就去上学了。从今天开始,妈妈就不去接你了。你直接有课后学校的老师接回去课后学校。我偷偷的站在学校外面,确定你被课后学校的老师安全的接回去。我忍不住哭了,这几天你身心疲惫,我也是身心疲惫,一万个不舍,一万个心疼。小小的你,经历者巨大的变化。每天早出晚归,差不多11,12个钟头在外面,吃不好,和不好,累得一点劲没有。下午去接你,你倒适应的还不错,和老师和小朋友开心的在跳舞。不过,你太累了,在车上就睡着了。

这几天对你来说是煎熬,是适应。对我来说也是一样的。 我看着你被课后学校的老师带走,老师很好,牵着你的手,拉者你走。我忍不住再你后面哭了。我多希望可以带你回家,让你在家玩,睡,吃东西。可是我要上班,我多希望可以不用上班,一直陪着你。

你是勇敢的,我是脆弱的。

Love Beige. It goes with almost everything.

This pair of shoe is so gorgeous that I think any woman who wear it  will look sexy!  However, heel of this pair is very high, I wonder if I will be able to walk in it. The price is $21.99. Yes, $21.99. Can you believe it? It’s so affordable. No wonder it’s at the 17th place of amazon’s Best Sellers in Women’s Pumps list. Should I take a chance to try it? Oh, decision, decision!!

Don’t make a mess

My aunt was helping me makeup today. It’s new to mark. He saw my aunt using an eye pencil on my face and said, “don’t make a mess on mommy’s face”.

My aunt wanted mark to talk to someone on the phone, he covered his ears and said, “i don’t have ears.”
