Respect for the Elderly

In any society nowadays, 
most people do not have much respect for the elderly.

 But there are still some people 
who do treat the elderly with respect.


 Some people respect the elderly out of their 
natural respect to seniority, priority or ranking.


But more of these some people respect the elderly because 
they are convinced by
the advice, experience or assistance 
they receive from the elderly. 


Therefore, the elderly's own behaviour can 
help determine how far they are respected.


For example,
a senior intern can act to a respectable intern if
he can act the role of an intern properly 

an elderly can act to a respectable person if
he can act with his seniority(老而彌堅)
but not by his seniority (以老賣老).

The Intern is a 2015 American comedy film
directed by Nancy Meyers.
The film stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway
in the two leading roles。
Anne Hathaway act as Jules Ostinis
who is the founder and CEO of About the Fit,
a fast-growing e-commerce fashion company.

Robert De Niro acts a Ben Whitaker
who is a widower and retired executive
at a phone directory company
who becomes a senior intern for Jules Ostinis.


In the film, you can see how Ben 
as a senior intern can act to become

a respectable intern as he can act the role of

an intern properly with his seniority.


But I think not many elderly can

act to become a respectable elderly
with his seniority as Ben Whitaker
who should be an exception in reality.

Slip of the Tongue for Love

Occasionally we make slips of the tongue 

by making mistakes in speaking.

The mistake may be 

a wrong pronunciation of a word or 

an improper use of a wrong word 

instead of the right one. 

Such verbal slips may arise from some unconscious thoughts, thus revealing some unconscious belief, wish, or motive of the speaker. 

Such verbal slips are named as 

Freudian Slip after Sigmund Freud.

So, when you want to say, 

"I have tons of love for you.", 

yet, you say, 

"I have none of love for you." instead! 

This verbal slip may reveal that 

your love for him/her are rapidly fading...

Music recorded in cassette tapes began to 
replace music in vinyl since early 1970s as 
it was more affordable for the general consumers. 



And more appealing, songs can be recorded
in cassette tapes while it cannot be with vinyl.

How satisfying it is if you can record songs 
in cassette tapes according to 
your own choices and preferences.

you could record songs in cassette tapes
