大蒜


把整個大蒜─一定要用紫皮的,其他的做出來會有苦味,帶皮放進電飯煲,然後保持keep warm保溫狀態大概12天左右,拿出來的大蒜會變成黑色,再放在陰涼的地方風乾5天左右,就行了。黑蒜一點大蒜味都沒有,吃起來是甜甜的,而且功效比大蒜好很多。在澳洲的市場賣150澳元1kg,差點被嚇死,還好終於學會做了,哈哈哈哈哈。做黑蒜時記得千萬中途不要打開蓋子,不然會影響發酵的。而且最好放在通風的地方做,呵呵,頭幾天會有大蒜味出來,之後味道會減輕。可是等黑蒜做出來,一切都是值得的,真是很好吃啊,哈哈哈哈。我在老外網站和中國百度網都能找到對黑蒜的詳細介紹。最令人感動的是黑蒜能主動將糖轉化為能量,使糖尿病人擁有普通人一樣的化糖能力,還能抗癌,增加免疫力

他在公司的名言是「When you give, you get」。他在上海成立科研中心,大方讓上汽參與,他認為各懷鬼貽的氣氛不可能做出成績。合資公司理論上是獨立個體,合資公司員工應把合資公司利益放到最前,而不是自己原屬公司的利益,但很少人做得到。慢慢下來,上汽也逐漸對墨菲產生尊重。

在美國和上海工作過的GM員工,指上海GM的工作氣氛跟美國截然不同,甚至認為上海GM形成一套自己的文化,這套文化建基於信任。墨菲跟員工打成一片,工餘在家中安排活動,中美關係罕有地融洽。 http://www.thehousenews.com/finance/由傲慢製造的優秀企業/



10. 永遠記得,做出決定前要先綜觀全局。

9. 否定別人跟切換開關一樣容易。但你最好拼死抵抗這種衝動,因為你也曾經做過蠢事。你做過爛決定,然後學習、成長,別人也一樣。

8. 掃地、擦桌、關燈。哪裡有漏洞要補就去補——即便那很瑣碎、沒人會注意。你必須做這些事去造福你的產品、你的公司,以及所有你們團隊共同打造的,令眾人驚艷、神奇的事物。

7. 你無法做所有的事。閉上眼睛,向後仰倒,學會信任。

6. 顯然有某種更為有效的方法能處理你正在做的事。是什麼呢?在每天回家的路上反覆思考吧。

5. 找出總是在依賴你的人,想想要怎麼做才能協助他們,讓他們自力更生。或許你覺得當個壟斷市場的鮭魚供應商很重要,但如果小鎮的所有人都學會捕魚,便能將你解放出來去做別的事。像是學習種小麥,或是如何馴服那些可愛的小狼。

4. 別說任何對當下討論沒有貢獻的話。你的聲音並非悠揚到絕對必須被聽見。

3. 做得出最好的決定比不上處在得以確保做出更多最佳決定的流程。

2. 就像你經常發表意見那樣,多說感謝和鼓勵的話語。

1. 最重要的是:永遠要掃除障礙物。那怕只是玩玩手指、看看窗外的雲,也別讓你那愚蠢、幼稚的自我阻礙團隊前進的腳步。

Given all that fear and panic, it's no surprise that otherwise rational people sometimes (often!) ignore rational arguments.

所以我认为同学们不要妄自菲薄,见到自己不懂的,或似懂非懂的,就认为是高深学问,畏而敬之。更不要骗自己,不懂却认为是懂。同学要问︰皇帝何来新衣了?不久前一位同学问及他高举的诺斯的某术语何解。我说不懂。我怎会不懂诺斯呢?同事十三年,好几个学期他旁听我的课。诺斯对问题重要性的感受好,这是天赋,是他的本钱,创造术语只不过是他的成名玩意,而这种颇为流行的玩意他的本领只是一般。是的,经济学行内有走不同路线的人,本领各各不同,有些成名,有些被认为是笨蛋。同学不要管这些。要管的是分析,因为这是脑子的操练,对整生的任何一方面都有好处。论分析,其中一个要点是任何术语,甚至任何一个字,其意思或理解都不要放过。坚持要知道,要明白。这样,三几年后同学会体会到学问有真假之分。是的,做学问要执着。 - http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_47841af70100cw6c.html
