Laughter echoes across the yard as students jump rope outside the Fort McMurray Islamic School in Canada. Like others flocking to the region, Muslims have taken advantage of the booming economy and established a community with several thousand members. Ebrahim Dhooma, principal of the school, says Muslims moved to the area from other parts of Canada and emigrated from all over the world—Sudan, Niger, Pakistan, and Malaysia. Many have taken jobs in mining or started their own businesses, and often their children are first-generation Canadians. "There is a sense of growth and potential in this town," Dhooma says. "With the building of new state-of-the-art facilities and the relative wealth of the area, optimism fills the air."

加拿大麦克默里堡伊斯兰学校的学生们在校外的庭院跳绳,笑声在上空回荡。同其他聚居区一样,穆斯林们从迅速发展的经济中获利,并建立了一个数千人的社区。这所学校的校长Ebrahim Dhooma说,穆斯林们从加拿大的其它地方,甚至全球——苏丹、尼日尔、巴基斯坦、马来西亚,移居到这里。大部分人已经在矿山找到工作或者自己创业,他们的的孩子一般都是出生在加拿大的第一代。“这个城镇的人们都感受到了发展和潜力,”Dhooma说,“伴随着高新科技设施的建设和这个地区体现出来的相对富裕,空气中充满了快乐。”

At dawn on Mount Sinai, camels rest and Said Spayel prays. Tourism on the peak has been a boon to Bedouin like Spayel: He charges about $15 a person for camelback rides to the summit. Thousands of other Bedouin live in the desert, where opportunities to earn cash are few.

西奈山上的清晨,骆驼在休息,Said Spayel在做祷告。山上旅游业是对Spayel这样的贝都因人的恩赐:他用骆驼把游客驮上山顶,收取每人15美元的费用。还有成千上万的贝都因人生活在这片几乎没有赚钱机会的沙漠里。

校赛

Published by under 似水年华

一个异常忙碌的周末。公司里正好不用加班,昨天上午去监考业余无线电操作证书考试,今天在ZJG当校赛巡场。差不多有一天半的时间都是站着或是走着,晚上回来的时候在出租车上已经要睡过去了。

算起来从06年省赛开始,校赛省赛我一场不落地都在当巡场,去年还被派到宁波软院去指导场务,按老板的话说都快成巡场专业户了。不过世上没有不散的宴席,今年应该是我最后一次做这件事了吧。最近公司里赶项目,我们组处于疯狂加班中,之前还以为今年校赛要到不了了,还好这周不加班忙里偷闲了一下。不过之后的省赛能不能到还是个未知数,豆哥已经放话说之后连着三个周末都要加班,但愿这个状态不要延续到省赛,让我的巡场生涯也有个圆满。

昨天去配清理脚本的时候,出了不小的悲剧。XP SP3的安全策略对文件共享部分做了些修改,以至于用了N年的脚本方案失效,我们三个人在这上面花了很长时间,最后在morning的提意下,用自解压压缩包解决了这个问题。

中午听Jewelz说她这个月的虚拟网已经用完了,和娜娜讲电话讲的。突然想起高三时情绪极差的那段时间,还有我哥和恐龙陪我飚短信、煲电话,现在什么都得自己扛了,也许这就是长大的代价吧。

下午熊猫不知道从哪儿拉来了一个mm,一来就rob了老板的2R,boy们都异常兴奋,以至于频率上过于繁忙。再加上这群小孩都是刚入行不久,完全没有讲话前先听两秒的概念,多次导致频率阻塞,正常工作无法进行。最后我只能上去吼了声少谈与工作无关的事,才有所改观。

jleex个鸟人,下午冲进警戒线,被我拦下后还摆出一副理真气壮的样子:“我找人。”我让他退到外面去,他就在走廊上大喊Murphy的名字。懂不懂规矩啊,换你在里面比赛有个鸟人在走廊上大叫,你什么感受?别以为自己和行政上的人熟,又混了个98站长就了不起。三个字,欠家教。

今天最神奇的事在于发现有一支队伍的桌上赫然放着一本Holly Bible,之后又发现他们把一本黄金雄的《为什么时光不能倒流》以供奉状立在显示器后面。这支队伍最后拿了一等奖,我们都在猜测是否是圣经+黄金雄的光环起了作用。

晚饭还是在三楼,一开始上菜大家就发现坐错桌了,几只禽兽聚到了一起,同桌的灿哥很悲剧地看着我们桌上始终只有一只只连配菜都不剩的盘子,而另两桌都还剩好多菜……

————————————————————————————————

昨天实在太累了,写了一半就趴在桌上睡着了,今天补完……

Elephant Seal Near Shore

Outside looking in, a lone male elephant seal lurks at the edge of a harem. Another year of feeding at sea may give him the bulk and the strength to win his own domain.

岸边的象海豹

本月每日一图的主题是:国家地理杂志专题

一只孤独的雄性象海豹伏在雌兽群边缘,向里张望。也许在海里再生长一年,它就会有足够的体形和力量来争夺自己的领地。

2009-03-31 fix: elephant seal是指象海豹(Mirounga),walrus才是海象(Odobenus);象海豹属于海豹科(Phocidae),海象属于海象科(Odobenidae);象海豹也作sea elephant,海象也作sea horse。

South American Gray Fox at Dusk

Photograph by Mattias Klum

A South American gray fox (Lycalopex griseus) yawns as dusk falls on Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. In Voyage of the Beagle, Darwin chronicled his first encounter with another member of the same genus, Darwin’s fox (Lycalopex fulvipes): "I was able, by quietly walking up behind, to knock him on the head with my geological hammer. This fox, more curious or more scientific, but less wise, than the generality of his brethren, is now mounted in the museum of the Zoological Society."

当暮色降临智利百内(译注:Torres del Paine,又译作托雷德裴恩,当地印第安语蓝色众峰之意)国家公园时,一只南美灰狐(Lycalopex griseus)打着哈欠。在《贝格尔号之旅》中,达尔文记录了他与这一属另一个成员达尔文狐(Lycalopex fulvipes)的第一次相遇:“我可以悄悄走到它的背后,用我的地质锤敲击它的头部。这种比它的同胞更具好奇心或者技巧性却不够狡猾的狐狸现在已经进入了动物学博物馆。”
