    • Letting Go
      How can we move ahead? By letting go. Relinquishment is a kind of liberation.
      Only by letting go can we free up our hand. When we grasp our hands tightly, they contain nothing. But if we open them up, they can accommodate even the world. When we pick up a burden, it weighs a ton. If we lay it down, it becomes light as a feather.
      When we learn to let go, our pressures, vexations, enemies and suffering diminish greatly.
      What if we cannot let go? Continue to bear the burdens. When we can’t bear them anymore, we will naturally lay them down.
      Who to pass them to? Except Buddha-nature or Amitabha, no one will accept our irksome burdens.
      Those who can let go, come close to Buddha-nature and Amitabha. Those who cannot, remain at a distance. To the extent that we are able to let go, we approach Buddha-nature, we approach Amitabha, we approach truth.

    • Wha, for so many years since young, no one have called me yantao, Uber is fund by google, that is why their calls is related to Google map, and you should know that Uber are losing millions

      But the gain from google overide the lost, by using their map, google can trace new roads and new places around the world…understand bo!!!..it is not merely for transportation purpose. Now u know why they can give free trip until our old moderator so happy to annoucne it.

      And you should know why China ban Google?? The US govt are google shareholder leh

      Car service giant Uber Technologies told prospective investors it is generating $470 million in operating losses on $415 million in revenue, Bloomberg News reported late Monday, citing a company document.

      The document showing the large operating losses is being used to sell between $1 billion and $1.2 billion in convertible bonds but does not provide a specific timeframe for when the losses occurred, the report said. Nevertheless, it does tout a 300 percent year-over-year growth by the company.

      Uber is currently operating in over 300 cities around the world and is valued at over $40 billion.

    • It is the most difficult of difficulties for one to believe in the teaching of the Amitabha-Recitation and make others believe it too. To transmit the great compassion of Amitabha Buddha to others and to spread his teaching far and wide is the true repayment of the benevolence of Amitabha Buddha.

      - Master Shandao

      Namo Amitabha!

      Is one always reborn as a human being?

      No, there are several realms in which one can be reborn. Some people are reborn in more luxurious worlds, some are reborn in more suffering worlds(Including animals), and some are reborn as hungry ghosts and so on. More luxurious worlds are not a place but a state of existence where one has a subtle body and where the mind experiences mainly pleasure. Some religions strive very hard to be reborn in more luxurious worlds, mistakenly believing it to be a permanent state, but it is not. Like all conditioned states, they are impermanent and when one’s life span is over that is finished, one could well be reborn again as any realms. More suffering worlds, likewise, is not a place but a state of existence where one has a body and where the mind experiences mainly anxiety and distress. Being a hungry ghost, again, is a state of existence where the body is subtle and where the mind is continually plagued by longing and dissatisfaction.

      So beings in more luxurious worlds experience mainly pleasure, beings in more suffering worlds experience mainly pain, and human beings experience usually a mixture of both. So the main difference between the human realm and other realms is the body type and the quality of experience.

    • DUBAI, United Arab Emirates /PRNewswire/ -- Plans have been revealed today in Dubai for the world's first fully functional 3D printed building, an ambitious move that will establish the UAE's position as the global centre of technology in architecture construction and design.

      To view the Multimedia News Release, please click: 
      http://www.multivu.com/players/uk/7565251-dubai-first-3d-printed-office/

      "This building will be a testimony to the efficiency and creativity of 3D printing technology, which we believe will play a major role in reshaping construction and design sectors. We aim to take advantage of this growth by becoming a global hub for innovation and 3D printing. This is the first step of many more to come." H.E Excellency Mohammed Al Gergawi, UAE Minister Of Cabinet Affairs and The Chairman of UAE National Innovation Committee said on the this occasion.

      The building will be located close to the 'Museum of the Future', launched earlier this year in Dubai, and will act as temporary headquarters for its staff. It will be approximately 2,000 square feet in size and will be printed layer-by-layer using a 20-foot tall 3D printer, then assembled on site in a matter of weeks. All interior furniture, detailing, and structural components will also be built using 3D printing technology. This will make it the most advanced, fully functional 3D printed building to date.

      The project is the first major initiative of the 'Museum of the Future' and is part of a larger partnership betweenDubai and WinSun Global - a joint venture between Chinese 3D printing technology firm WinSun and international investors - along with leading global architecture and engineering firms Gensler, Thornton Thomasetti, and Syska Hennessy.

      Its design is based on in-depth research about the requirements of future work and represents the latest thinking in workplace design. The space is open and flexible, allowing for a range of uses and team sizes, and will bring together professionals, community members, and experts through a mix of public and private events. It will also feature a small digital fabrication facility and a 3D printing exhibition space.

      The project marks the beginning of an important transformation in the construction and design sector; the shift to 3D printing and digital fabrication. Although long tested in labs, 3D printing technology is rapidly coming of age. This project will be the most advanced 3D printed structure ever built at this scale and the first to be put into actual use.

      Experts estimate that 3D printing technology can reduce production times by 50 to 70 per cent, reduce labour costs by 50 to 80 per cent, and can save between 30 and 60 per cent of construction waste. These savings translate to enhanced productivity, higher economic return, and increased sustainability.

    • eh…how come my lanjiao lah trademark is seen here.

      Brother brother…at times, inner self actualisation is important.so we have to honestly ask ourselves, do we have enough youngs to drive bus or truck / to do mannual labour job / to do servicing jobs? remember we are facing an aging population and low birthrate syndrome that the govt is also unable to solve.

      And with a govt policies of Economy first, foreign investment headed by EDB at Raffles City will, at all cost, bring in FI so as to make the economy flambuoyant and more so, a higher GDP, which is an indicator of Civil Servant pays rise and bonuses.

      As such, govt have long forgo or even forget about the social needs, pples like you and me, true blue Singaporeans are cast aside and pick whatever breadcrumbers that is left behind.

      And indirectly, our education train labourers, not entrepreneur, because govt know, they need to train our youngs to be the workforce so as to compliment these foreign investor. End up everyday your seeing chio bu, yandao, aunties and uncles of locals struggling for cab, bus and MRT. As govt put it in most of their speeches, we got nothing, human the only resources we have, so do you think they will make you a businessman or in another word, give you own yr own taxi??

      As govt chiong for economy at all cost, and forgo social needs, bring in foreign investment and foreign Trash, who are we to blame… the ah nehs, the pinoys, the chao ang mo, the yangon, the vietcongs or the bang kala etc etc? No. As one indian national once correct told me, Uncle, it is your govt asking and welcoming us to come here. Then he said, who vote the govt in yr country?
