Bill Gates Harvard Commencement Speech
- Very thought provoking !!!

We received this article via e-mail. It is definitely worth reading. We hereby post it here so the all Kepong Practitioners can read about it.

Below is the prepared text for Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates's commencement address to the Harvard University class of 2007.

June 7, 2007 5:23 p.m.

President Bok, former President Rudenstine, incoming President Faust, members of the Harvard Corporation and the Board of Overseers, members of the faculty, parents, and especially, the graduates:

I've been waiting more than 30 years to say this: "Dad, I always told you I'd come back and get my degree."

I want to thank Harvard for this timely honor. I'll be changing my job next year and it will be nice to finally have a college degree on my resume.

I applaud the graduates today for taking a much more direct route to your degrees. For my part, I'm just happy that the Crimson has called me "Harvard's most successful dropout." I guess that makes me valedictorian of my own special class? I did the best of everyone who failed.

But I also want to be recognized as the guy who got Steve Ballmer to drop out of business school. I'm a bad influence. That's why I was invited to speak at your graduation. If I had spoken at your orientation, fewer of you might be here today.

Harvard was just a phenomenal experience for me. Academic life was fascinating. I used to sit in on lots of classes I hadn't even signed up for. And dorm life was terrific. I lived up at Radcliffe, in Currier House. There were always lots of people in my dorm room late at night discussing things, because everyone knew I didn't worry about getting up in the morning. That's how I came to be the leader of the anti-social group. We clung to each other as a way of validating our rejection of all those social people.

Radcliffe was a great place to live. There were more women up there, and most of the guys were science-math types. That combination offered me the best odds, if you know what I mean. This is where I learned the sad lesson that improving your odds doesn't guarantee success.

One of my biggest memories of Harvard came in January 1975, when I made a call from Currier House to a company in Albuquerque that had begun making the world's first personal computers. I offered to sell them software.

I worried that they would realize I was just a student in a dorm and hang up on me. Instead they said: "We're not quite ready, come see us in a month," which was a good thing, because we hadn't written the software yet. From that moment, I worked day and night on this little extra credit project that marked the end of my college education and the beginning of a remarkable journey with Microsoft.

What I remember above all about Harvard was being in the midst of so much energy and intelligence. It could be exhilarating, intimidating, sometimes even discouraging, but always challenging. It was an amazing privilege and though I left early, I was transformed by my years at Harvard, the friendships I made, and the ideas I worked on.

But taking a serious look back I do have one big regret.

I left Harvard with no real awareness of the awful inequities in the world -- the appalling disparities of health, and wealth, and opportunity that condemn millions of people to lives of despair.

I learned a lot here at Harvard about new ideas in economics and politics. I got great exposure to the advances being made in the sciences.

But humanity's greatest advances are not in its discoveries but in how those discoveries are applied to reduce inequity. Whether through democracy, strong public education, quality health care, or broad economic opportunity reducing inequity is the highest human achievement.

I left campus knowing little about the millions of young people cheated out of educational opportunities here in this country. And I knew nothing about the millions of people living in unspeakable poverty and disease in developing countries.

It took me decades to find out.

You graduates came to Harvard at a different time. You know more about the world's inequities than the classes that came before. In your years here, I hope you've had a chance to think about how in this age of accelerating technology we can finally take on these inequities, and we can solve them.

Imagine, just for the sake of discussion, that you had a few hours a week and a few dollars a month to donate to a cause and you wanted to spend that time and money where it would have the greatest impact in saving and improving lives. Where would you spend it?

For Melinda and for me, the challenge is the same: how can we do the most good for the greatest number with the resources we have.

During our discussions on this question, Melinda and I read an article about the millions of children who were dying every year in poor countries from diseases that we had long ago made harmless in this country. Measles, malaria, pneumonia, hepatitis B, yellow fever. One disease I had never even heard of, rotavirus, was killing half a million kids each year none of them in the United States.

We were shocked. We had just assumed that if millions of children were dying and they could be saved, the world would make it a priority to discover and deliver the medicines to save them. But it did not. For under a dollar, there were interventions that could save lives that just weren't being delivered.

If you believe that every life has equal value, it's revolting to learn that some lives are seen as worth saving and others are not. We said to ourselves: "This can't be true. But if it is true, it deserves to be the priority of our giving."

So we began our work in the same way anyone here would begin it. We asked: "How could the world let these children die?"

The answer is simple, and harsh. The market did not reward saving the lives of these children, and governments did not subsidize it. So the children died because their mothers and their fathers had no power in the market and no voice in the system.

But you and I have both.

We can make market forces work better for the poor if we can develop a more creative capitalism if we can stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living, serving people who are suffering from the worst inequities. We also can press governments around the world to spend taxpayer money in ways that better reflect the values of the people who pay the taxes.

If we can find approaches that meet the needs of the poor in ways that generate profits for business and votes for politicians, we will have found a sustainable way to reduce inequity in the world.

This task is open-ended. It can never be finished. But a conscious effort to answer this challenge will change the world.

I am optimistic that we can do this, but I talk to skeptics who claim there is no hope. They say: "Inequity has been with us since the beginning, and will be with us till the end because people just don't care."

I completely disagree.

I believe we have more caring than we know what to do with.

All of us here in this Yard, at one time or another, have seen human tragedies that broke our hearts, and yet we did nothing -- not because we didn't care, but because we didn't know what to do. If we had known how to help, we would have acted.

The barrier to change is not too little caring; it is too much complexity.

To turn caring into action, we need to see a problem, see a solution, and see the impact. But complexity blocks all three steps.

Even with the advent of the Internet and 24-hour news, it is still a complex enterprise to get people to truly see the problems. When an airplane crashes, officials immediately call a press conference. They promise to investigate, determine the cause, and prevent similar crashes in the future.

But if the officials were brutally honest, they would say: "Of all the people in the world who died today from preventable causes, one half of one percent of them were on this plane. We're determined to do everything possible to solve the problem that took the lives of the one half of one percent."

The bigger problem is not the plane crash, but the millions of preventable deaths.

We don't read much about these deaths. The media covers what's new and millions of people dying is nothing new. So it stays in the background, where it's easier to ignore. But even when we do see it or read about it, it's difficult to keep our eyes on the problem. It's hard to look at suffering if the situation is so complex that we don't know how to help. And so we look away.

If we can really see a problem, which is the first step, we come to the second step: cutting through the complexity to find a solution.

Finding solutions is essential if we want to make the most of our caring. If we have clear and proven answers anytime an organization or individual asks "How can I help?," then we can get action and we can make sure that none of the caring in the world is wasted. But complexity makes it hard to mark a path of action for everyone who cares and that makes it hard for their caring to matter.

Cutting through complexity to find a solution runs through four predictable stages: determine a goal, find the highest-leverage approach, discover the ideal technology for that approach, and in the meantime, make the smartest application of the technology that you already have whether it's something sophisticated, like a drug, or something simpler, like a bednet.

The AIDS epidemic offers an example. The broad goal, of course, is to end the disease. The highest-leverage approach is prevention. The ideal technology would be a vaccine that gives lifetime immunity with a single dose. So governments, drug companies, and foundations fund vaccine research. But their work is likely to take more than a decade, so in the meantime, we have to work with what we have in hand and the best prevention approach we have now is getting people to avoid risky behavior.

Pursuing that goal starts the four-step cycle again. This is the pattern. The crucial thing is to never stop thinking and working and never do what we did with malaria and tuberculosis in the 20th century which is to surrender to complexity and quit.

The final step after seeing the problem and finding an approach is to measure the impact of your work and share your successes and failures so that others learn from your efforts.

You have to have the statistics, of course. You have to be able to show that a program is vaccinating millions more children. You have to be able to show a decline in the number of children dying from these diseases. This is essential not just to improve the program, but also to help draw more investment from business and government.

But if you want to inspire people to participate, you have to show more than numbers; you have to convey the human impact of the work so people can feel what saving a life means to the families affected.

I remember going to Davos some years back and sitting on a global health panel that was discussing ways to save millions of lives. Millions! Think of the thrill of saving just one person's life then multiply that by millions. Yet this was the most boring panel I've ever been on ever. So boring even I couldn't bear it.

What made that experience especially striking was that I had just come from an event where we were introducing version 13 of some piece of software, and we had people jumping and shouting with excitement. I love getting people excited about software but why can't we generate even more excitement for saving lives?

You can't get people excited unless you can help them see and feel the impact. And how you do that is a complex question.

Still, I'm optimistic. Yes, inequity has been with us forever, but the new tools we have to cut through complexity have not been with us forever. They are new they can help us make the most of our caring and that's why the future can be different from the past.

The defining and ongoing innovations of this age â?" biotechnology, the computer, the Internet â?" give us a chance we've never had before to end extreme poverty and end death from preventable disease.

Sixty years ago, George Marshall came to this commencement and announced a plan to assist the nations of post-war Europe. He said: "I think one difficulty is that the problem is one of such enormous complexity that the very mass of facts presented to the public by press and radio make it exceedingly difficult for the man in the street to reach a clear appraisement of the situation. It is virtually impossible at this distance to grasp at all the real significance of the situation."

Thirty years after Marshall made his address, as my class graduated without me, technology was emerging that would make the world smaller, more open, more visible, less distant.

The emergence of low-cost personal computers gave rise to a powerful network that has transformed opportunities for learning and communicating.

The magical thing about this network is not just that it collapses distance and makes everyone your neighbor. It also dramatically increases the number of brilliant minds we can have working together on the same problem and that scales up the rate of innovation to a staggering degree.

At the same time, for every person in the world who has access to this technology, five people don't. That means many creative minds are left out of this discussion -- smart people with practical intelligence and relevant experience who don't have the technology to hone their talents or contribute their ideas to the world.

We need as many people as possible to have access to this technology, because these advances are triggering a revolution in what human beings can do for one another. They are making it possible not just for national governments, but for universities, corporations, smaller organizations, and even individuals to see problems, see approaches, and measure the impact of their efforts to address the hunger, poverty, and desperation George Marshall spoke of 60 years ago.

Members of the Harvard Family: Here in the Yard is one of the great collections of intellectual talent in the world.

What for?

There is no question that the faculty, the alumni, the students, and the benefactors of Harvard have used their power to improve the lives of people here and around the world. But can we do more? Can Harvard dedicate its intellect to improving the lives of people who will never even hear its name?

Let me make a request of the deans and the professors the intellectual leaders here at Harvard: As you hire new faculty, award tenure, review curriculum, and determine degree requirements, please ask yourselves:

Should our best minds be dedicated to solving our biggest problems?

Should Harvard encourage its faculty to take on the world's worst inequities? Should Harvard students learn about the depth of global poverty the prevalence of world hunger the scarcity of clean water the girls kept out of school the children who die from diseases we can cure?

Should the world's most privileged people learn about the lives of the world's least privileged?

These are not rhetorical questions you will answer with your policies.

My mother, who was filled with pride the day I was admitted here never stopped pressing me to do more for others. A few days before my wedding, she hosted a bridal event, at which she read aloud a letter about marriage that she had written to Melinda. My mother was very ill with cancer at the time, but she saw one more opportunity to deliver her message, and at the close of the letter she said: "From those to whom much is given, much is expected."

When you consider what those of us here in this Yard have been given in talent, privilege, and opportunity â?" there is almost no limit to what the world has a right to expect from us.

In line with the promise of this age, I want to exhort each of the graduates here to take on an issue a complex problem, a deep inequity, and become a specialist on it. If you make it the focus of your career, that would be phenomenal. But you don't have to do that to make an impact. For a few hours every week, you can use the growing power of the Internet to get informed, find others with the same interests, see the barriers, and find ways to cut through them.

Don't let complexity stop you. Be activists. Take on the big inequities. It will be one of the great experiences of your lives.

You graduates are coming of age in an amazing time. As you leave Harvard, you have technology that members of my class never had. You have awareness of global inequity, which we did not have. And with that awareness, you likely also have an informed conscience that will torment you if you abandon these people whose lives you could change with very little effort.

You have more than we had; you must start sooner, and carry on longer.

Knowing what you know, how could you not?

And I hope you will come back here to Harvard 30 years from now and reflect on what you have done with your talent and your energy. I hope you will judge yourselves not on your professional accomplishments alone, but also on how well you have addressed the world's deepest inequities on how well you treated people a world away who have nothing in common with you but their humanity.

Good luck.

中風黃金時間處理 ...要學 ~~超重要

患了中風,腦部的微血管,會慢慢的破裂,遇到這種情形,千萬別慌,患者無論在什麼地方 (不管是浴室、臥房或客廳),千萬不可搬動他。



如果沒有,就拿縫衣用的銅針,或是大頭針,用火燒一下消毒,就在患者的十個手指頭尖兒(沒有固定穴道,大約距 離手指甲一分之處)上去刺,要刺出血來 (萬一血不出來,可用手擠), 等十個手指 頭都流出血來 (每指一 )大約幾分鐘之後,患者就自然清醒, 如果嘴也歪了,就拉他的耳朵,把耳朵拉紅,在兩耳的耳垂兒的部位,各刺兩針,也各流血兩滴,幾分鐘以後,嘴就恢復原狀了。

就一定可以轉危為安,否則,若是急著抬上救護車送醫,經一路的顛跛震動恐怕還沒到醫院,他腦部微血管,差不多 已經都破裂了。萬一能夠吉人天相,保全老命,能像孫院長,容得勉強行動,那要靠祖上的陰了。


大概是民國六十八年我在台中逢甲學院任教, 有天上午,我正在上課,一位老師跑到我的教室上氣不接下氣的說: 劉老師快來,主任中風了;我立刻跑到三樓,看到陳幅添主任,氣色不正,語意模,嘴也歪了,很明顯的是中風了。



陣子,喝了一杯熱茶,才扶他下樓,開車送到惠華醫院,打一罐點滴,休息了一 夜,第二天就出院回 ! 學校上課了。


(放血救命) 的方法,立刻施救,在短短時間它能起死回生,而且保證百分之百的正常。

但是想要讓自己骨骼結實、身體長得高、預防骨質酥鬆 症的人,最好還是乖乖地捏著鼻子吃洋蔥吧。


研究人員讓雄性大白鼠每天吃一公克乾洋蔥,連續四週後,公白鼠的骨質平均增加了13.5-18%。另一組實驗則發現,讓大白鼠食用含有洋蔥的混合蔬菜,也能夠減少骨質流失問題。第三組實驗則是讓摘除卵巢的雌性大白鼠每天吃1.5公克的洋蔥,結果骨質流失的速率減少了25%。更值得注意的是,洋蔥的保健功效在短短 12小時內就看得到了。

研究人員認為,洋蔥的效果可能來自於「 預防骨質流失」,因此想要利用洋蔥保健的人,每天可能要吃上200-300公克(10盎司)的洋蔥,才能夠預防骨質酥鬆症。醫食同源,在我們日常食物中,有很多蔬菜水果都具有藥物般的療效;像西餐裡少不了的配菜洋蔥,它對身體的好處簡直超乎想像。洋蔥還可以用來 生吃或榨汁喝,根據醫學實驗,它更能發揮多種神奇療效。


據哈佛醫學院心臟科教授克多格爾威治博士指出,每天生吃半個洋蔥,或喝等量的洋蔥汁,平均可增加心臟病人約30%HDL含量(HDL為高密度脂蛋白膽固醇,一種被認為有助於預防動脈粥狀硬化的膽固醇,也是一種的好的膽固醇。)每天生吃半個洋蔥,或喝等量的洋蔥汁,以保護心臟,這原是個民間偏方,克多博士在自己的診所裡對病人進行實驗,證明洋蔥確有提升好膽固醇的療效,不過洋蔥煮得越熟 ,越不具效果。


克多博士讓診所裡的心臟病人每天吃洋蔥,結果發現洋蔥裡所含的化合物也能阻止血小板凝結 ,並加速血液凝塊溶解 。所以,當你享用高脂肪食物時,最好能搭配些許洋蔥,將有助於抵銷高脂肪食物引起的血液凝塊;所以說牛排通常搭配洋蔥一起吃,是很有道理的!!




洋蔥含有至少三種抗發炎的天然化學物質,可以治療 哮喘。由於洋蔥可以抑制組織胺的動,而組織胺正是一種會引起哮喘過敏症狀的化學物質;據德國的研究,洋蔥可以使哮喘的發作機率降低一半左右。


很久以前,洋蔥就被用來治療糖尿病,到了現代,醫學也證明洋蔥確實能夠降血糖而且不論生食或熟食,都同樣有效果。原來洋蔥裡有一種抗糖尿病的化合物,類似常用的口服降血糖劑甲磺丁胺,具有刺激胰島素 合成及釋放的作用。


洋蔥的妙用還不止上述這些,在日常生活中,洋蔥還可用來防治失眠:將切碎的洋蔥放置於枕邊,洋蔥特有的刺激成分,會發揮鎮靜神經、誘人入眠的神奇功效。感冒的時候,喝加了 洋蔥的熱味噌湯,很快就可發汗退燒。如果鼻塞,以一小片洋蔥抵住鼻孔,洋蔥的刺激氣味,會促使鼻子瞬間暢通起來。如果咳嗽,以紗布包裹切碎的洋蔥,覆蓋於喉嚨到胸口,也可以很快抑制咳嗽。攝取高鈣就能防止骨質的流失嗎?骨折雖不像得了癌症或愛滋病那麼令人感到震驚與絕望,但有不少老年人本來身體還蠻硬朗,然而一旦發生了骨折,突然活動量銳減,身體狀況急速下降,甚至有些人沒在下床或下輪椅而走了。骨質流失是一種不會痛,甚至也沒有感覺的生理現象,常一直到發生 骨折或去測骨質密度才突然發現骨骼已經變得那麼的疏鬆了。骨骼與其他之組織不大一樣,它由『造骨細胞』和『破骨細胞』來分別擔任其『新陳』和『代謝』。當造骨細胞之活性大過破骨細胞時,骨骼會增長、增大或增加其密度;反之,則變得更疏鬆。骨骼的建造乃是先以膠原蛋白構成立體網狀之基質,然後再由鈣、鎂、鋅、磷、氟等化合姣P膠原蛋白結合,添充在其空洞中,但破骨細胞也一直不斷地分解這些基質與礦物質。飲食中所攝取的鈣質是否有機會存到骨骼中而使骨骼加長(身高加長)或骨質變得更緻密?其必須通過兩關的考驗,第一是其吸收率,如所攝取的鈣質不易被吸收,所攝取的鈣大多還是由糞便中排掉。因此衛生署公的「健康食品之改善骨質疏鬆功能評估方法」的第一項測定即以其吸收率來作為評估指標,如某一食品之鈣吸收率能明顯高過一般最普遍用來做為食品添加物的碳酸鈣(CaCO3)時,可視為一健康食品。

累了,就把心事放下來。If you are tired, put it down.




師父一聽完我跟他提到的個人煩惱的時候,他索性要我左手提起他剛買的三罐番茄汁,一邊提著,一邊跟他說話。可想而知,我左手感覺到疲勞的程度,跟時間成了正比。也懊惱著為何師父要我一邊提著三罐蕃茄汁,一邊跟他說話。受不了這樣的酸楚,我自行把左手放下,卻聽到師父跟我說:「Hold it up, and keep talking to me. 」


約莫過了15分鐘,我的左手實在承受不住了,才聽見師父跟我說:「Now you can put it down.」。








Recently, I came to know an American master who was a monk. The experience has been interesting.

Especially the experience of holding up tomato juice while talking to him. I had an appointment with him at a restaurant to talk about religious matters, life, death & rebirth. These were nothing unusual.

Interesting things then followed!

When Master heard about my personal troubles and unhappiness, he asked me to hold up
with my left hand continually the 3 cans of tomato juice he just bought while talking to him. You can imagine that my left hand became more and more tired as the seconds ticked by. I was wondering why Master wanted me to do so. I could no longer bear that and put my left hand down by myself. The Master said, "Hold it up, and keep talking to me."

I began to wonder deeper. My left hand was tired. Why didn't the Master relieve me of this burden while talking to him?

15 minutes later, my left hand was real tired. Then only I heard Master said, "Now you can put it down."

He looked at my dubious face and laughed, "You do not like to hold up something heavy while talking to me. Why then you bring along your troubles and unhappiness to talk to me and while living your life? When your hand is tired, you can simply put it down. Isn't it the same for your troubles and unhappiness? The troubles and unhappiness are analogous to these tomato juice. It is you who hold them with you own hand."

It was an interesting experience, isn't it?

Recently, I started to do this practice. One hand held up something heavy while I did my thinking. When I felt tired, I naturally put it down. I would like to see that one day when my heart felt tired, I would be able to put those those things that troubled me down as well.

We can easily put down something that is real and visible. On the contrary, it is difficult to put down something that is invisible and abstract.


Stubborn life will hold you down with unnecessary burdens.

Please learn how to put your stubbornness down and feel the freedom life brings.
