金面山親山步道 (How to get to Neihu)

金面山為五指山系之西南稜,分金面山與小金面山,這座山地質忠的安山砂岩含有石英,因此當太陽照射石遠望山頂閃閃發光,當地人便稱之為金面山。

金面山親山步道位於內湖環山路德明財經技術大學旁,步道自起點開始就可見幾近垂直的大岩壁,沿途盡是古樸的砂岩石階,隨著坡度漸漸上升,石階路改由直徑超過100公尺以上的大岩壁取代,登上半山腰,有一處清代採石場的石堡瞭望台,是明顯的地標,山頂巨岩間當然是一處眺望臺北市景、基隆河沿岸的最佳駐腳點。
步道沿線向東再經過小金面山不久便來到內湖路三段金龍禪寺附近,也是親山步道的尾段部份了。
造訪剪刀石是遊金面山的重頭戲,除了欣賞特殊景觀,這裡還有一流的展望視野。登上半山腰,清代採石場和石堡瞭望台都是遠眺臺北盆地不錯的景點,但是以基隆河沿岸最為清楚。

在山頂巨岩間,令人目不暇給的360度全景環伺在旁:東望內湖大埤(碧湖公園),北眺碧山巖附近山陵及五指山;向南則可俯瞰基隆河、松山機場、美麗華摩天輪、101高樓等臺北市景。西邊則俯瞰臺北盆地與基隆河,登頂遠望,北市都市風光盡收眼底,是處值得登高俯瞰的好地方。
此時,找一塊孤懸崖壁的巨岩,享受張臂迎風的快意,或者就躺在上面,恣意舒放方才攀岩的緊繃,若是三五好友坐在這開闊的天地之間暢所欲言,那滋味絕非窩在城市角落喝下午茶所能比擬。

The Journey to Sun Moon Lake

One of the things I love about Taiwan is the magnificent scenery. Every time I visited Taiwan, I never really had the chance to fully explore Sun Moon Lake. So here I am!

Love The Arrival. I give it 4 stars out of 5


One of the things that struck me about this movie is that whilst the focus is on learning to communicate with the aliens, that's not all that's going on. Look at the scenes where Louise talks to Colonel Weber about what she's doing. She and he look at the world in different ways - they are also alien to one another, and she is using examples and stories - even made up ones like the "Kangaroo" story - to bridge a gap in understanding with him and his superiors, exactly like she's having to do with Humans and the Heptapods. And on a larger scale, the different nations with Heptapod ships in them all have different philosophies and ways of doing things, different ways of understanding the situation. And they also have to overcome those gulfs and communicate with one another to arrive at the solution. So the movie is about communication not just with the heptapods, but on at least three different levels. The message seems to be that we are ALL aliens to one another, and the key to overcoming those divides is learning to communicate so that we can bridge the gaps in understanding between us.

Donald Trump Declares War on Muslims

On Tuesday night, via Twitter, Donald Trump announced, “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!” Those many other things include placing limits on the number of refugees admitted to the United States to 50,000 a year (down from 100,000) and imposing a temporary ban on most refugees. Trump also intends to go after sanctuary cities in the U.S., to step up deportations dramatically, and to revisit current interrogation policies—including a possible move to reinstate black-site detention facilities operated by the CIA.

At the center of this spate of executive orders is Trump’s campaign promise to go after Muslims simply for being Muslim. Starting with his promise to “bomb the shit” out of ISIS and his pledge to torture family members of suspected terrorists, Trump has made targeting Muslims at home and abroad a cornerstone of his political identity. He will now make it an animating principle of his presidency.
