On an update of Covid cases in the US Oct 4, 2020

QHE wrote:

are on the decline in only three US states
Rosalind Bruenig


As of Saturday night, new cases were down in Texas, Missouri and South Carolina, while 21 states reported a rise in cases and a little more than half held steady compared with the week before.

The mixed results come as the President joined the more than 7.3 million people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the US, a sobering reminder of the virus’ reach as health experts urge continued vigilance during the fall and winter months.

The 21 states reporting a rise in new cases are Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

A dialogue between fish of the river and those of the sea Oct 4, 2020

【沈氏吟草】《鱼儿问答》

气候变暖殃池鱼,人间处处是瘟疫。
洪涝野火连番虐,东西风声又鹤唳。
三文一看势不妙,赶紧撤离回海去。
好友鳟鲤来告别,临行相惜慕不已。
来年若能再相逢,生个女儿嫁给你。
带她离开小池塘,乘风破浪去追雨。
多谢各位看得起,陪我长大又游戏。
说完匆匆出溪河,一路狂奔入深宇。
蓝水清澈鱼群大,泱泱大域无边际。
半年不见又相聚,频打招呼鱼不理。
虾米花螺说实话,要怪就怪你自己。
当今人间走一遭,是鱼谁敢接近你。
虎鲨金枪威胁道,马上自我去隔离!
三文感到好冤枉,两位蛮横不讲理。
人类的话你也信,你们明知我没肺。
螃蟹出来打圆场,各位大人消消气,
上岸为了下一代。两栖也是不得已。
艰难险阻人间旅。到处乌烟又瘴气。
各位何必空埋怨,进化得向我看齐。
海水污染我上岸,空气浓了我抗议。
今日上下都难熬,吹完泡后回海底。
海底捞到一张皮,撕了一片放嘴里,
以为透明海带嫩,弄得满口塑料味。
逃吧,我说你们,远离人类深水去!

BLUE SONATA
John Ashbery

Long ago was the then beginning to seem like now
As now is but the setting out on a new but still
Undefined way. That now, the one once
Seen from far away, is our destiny
No matter what else may happen to us. It is
The present past of which our features,
Our opinions are made. We are half it and we
Care nothing about the rest of it. We
Can see far enough ahead for the rest of us to be
Implicit in the surroundings that twilight is.
We know that this part of the day comes every day
And we feel that, as it has its rights, so
We have our right to be ourselves in the measure
That we are in it and not some other day, or in
Some other place. The time suits us
Just as it fancies itself, but just so far
As we not give up that inch, breath
Of becoming before becoming may be seen,
Or come to seem all that it seems to mean now.

The things that were coming to be talked about
Have come and gone and are still remembered
As being recent. There is a grain of curiosity
At the base of some new thing, that unrolls
Its question mark like a new wave on the shore.
In coming to give, to give up what we had,
We have, we understand, gained or been gained
By what was passing through, bright with the sheen
Of things recently forgotten and revived.
Each image fits into place, with the calm
Of not having too many, of having just enough.
We live in the sigh of our present.

If that was all there was to have
We could re-imagine the other half, deducing it
From the shape of what is seen, thus
Being inserted into its idea of how we
Ought to proceed. It would be tragic to fit
Into the space created by our not having arrived yet,
To utter the speech that belongs there,
For progress occurs through re-inventing
These words from a dim recollection of them,
In violating that space in such a way as
To leave it intact. Yet we do after all
Belong here, and have moved a considerable
Distance; our passing is a façade.
But our understanding of it is justified.

Nortosce: the Italian town where just two people live, but wear masks By Silvia Marchetti, CNN 5 hrs ago

一个叫做乔瓦尼,另一个姓诺比利。
全镇人口就他俩,你当村长我书记?
西人如何守规矩,莫过两老处独居。
火箭航母高科技,不敌小小一Covid。
不慕威尼斯商人,只喜门前葡萄藤。
朝九晚五求生计,大街小巷藏煞气。
菜园果鲜羊毛暖,野外处处逢生机。
与世隔绝成向往,方得南山辋川意。
陶令不知何处去,原来他在意大利。

《层层渲染 vs. 一味霸悍》——画品与人品

近朱者赤,层层渲染;老李果然可染。
近墨不黑,铮铮铁骨;老潘刚直不阿。

D.S.2020.1020.a

老孙

李可染是画山水的。他在‘染’的技法上确实有所突破。但他这张例图本身就是‘火红的年代’之产物。

潘天寿是画花鸟的。他最常画的题材是从小生长的浙南山区之所见:山花烂漫,野草傍溪,苍松遒劲,苔石秃鹰。到杭州任教定居后,常画西湖荷花:尤喜杨万里“映日荷花别样红”的意境。只要输入“潘天寿-映日”这两个关键词,你起码会有上百张不同的画作。

众所周知,医有专科;自唐以降,画有分科。这篇报道中透露的最让人好笑的是对潘天寿不愿搞人物画的指责。我打个不恰当的比方:那是一位外科医生在指责心血管专科医生说他在抵制上面要为病人拔牙的号召。

在人人自危的年代,生存之道是残酷的,画画的也不例外。中国美术界的水一直很深。自从两宋画院起,就有在皇上面前争宠的,这类“搞不灵清”的是非纠葛,大多因社会环境与政治气候而生。每当看到这些,我等无名之辈应当庆幸的是自己不必为这类事情活折阳寿。李可染虽然略有失节,但大体上他还是一位有建树并心存良知的画家。

而潘天寿‘宁折不曲’的个性,在他画中表露无疑。他的成就也在于此,虽以花鸟为本,他却将天地间的阳刚之气发挥到了前无古人的境界。近五百年的花鸟画如选五位领军人物,则他必定在其中:1.徐渭,2.八大山人,3.吴昌硕,4.齐白石,5.潘天寿。

I could go on for days, but I guess that's more than enough art-talk for this translators' forum. 还是看看画吧:

《作孽啊》

老孙,

美术界的事我可多言几句,因为跟他们多年厮混下来,略有感受。对科学界的事咱所知甚少无权置评,只能按照常理来辨别了。看了上述有关‘束星北与王镇皋’的报道后,用民间老奶奶的话说,这叫“作孽”;还不是“前世作孽”,而属于“现世报”。

这对师生之间的故事,借用一对楹联来形容颇为贴切:正邪自古同冰炭,毁誉于今判伪真。

天资高于李政道,这点道理应知道。
冰炭性质分不清,枉为物理高材生,
D.S.2020.1021.b

能在这样的业界大师门下当学生并得其赏识,算他三生有幸。一般人感激都来不及。可他的所作所为不但毁了老师的后半生,也毁了自己的前程。用美国老百姓的话说:"He screwed it up big-time." The fact is, not only did he screw up the life of one of China's the greatest physicist, but he ruined that of his own.

如我们把他晚年还在为没能评上正教授而忿忿不平的那一段译成英文版,不少老美读到此段时很可能是这样的反应:Now go screw yourself!

我这么说不知算不算太粗俗,最好 Steve 能出来帮忙辨疑。

老沈:

我非常同意你的观点以及 Steve 所说的 “A victim of circumstance or a product of your own decisions”。尽管监视束星北是由大环境所决定,是上面布置的任务,但王镇皋即使不敢拒绝也应消极应付。我觉得,王镇皋是利欲熏心,才接受监视束星北的可耻任务,以为这样就可以踩着别人的脑袋往上爬。从《告密者》那篇报道看来,王镇皋是在十分积极地执行任务。所以,王镇皋是咎由自取。俗话说,“天作孽,犹可违;自作孽,不可逭。”

所谓“天资高于李政道”,究竟束星北是否说过这样的话,还值得怀疑。中国大陆在职称评定上向来讲究论资排辈,何况还有学校保卫处处长的许诺“未来的职称和工资决不低于同届老师”。作为1950年考入山东大学的高材生,王镇皋到了耄耋之年行将就木时还没评上正教授,正是他自己轻信许诺、不务正业的恶果!本来,他是有可能“站在巨人的肩膀上”在专业上作出杰出成就的。

强拆只需留个言,

Fire danger is unusually high in the high Rockies this year. Hope you guys are safe. It is unseasonably chilly here in Seattle now, but 45 wildfires are burning in CA as we speak. The Blue Ridge Fire and the Silverado Fire south of LA are two of the most dangerous at the moment. That's where I learned to drive some 30 years ago, more on this when I get back.
