The President, with Her Dreams about Medigenvac

How the president here, VOUCHES for this vaccine company here, by allowing the emergency user authorizations to pass too quickly, because she had her hands, dipped in the stocks here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

After Medigenvac received the EUA, president Tsai tweeted the good news to everybody, hoped that it’ll make the world and Taiwan, a better place.  Just as she’d made her wish, Medigenvac broke through the barrier again, got listed as a vaccine available for people to choose from.  As for, how would, Medigenvac “make the world a better place”, the government officials must plan it all out, thoroughly, to NOT let this bubble burst.

On the Facebook of the president, she’d claimed, “everything will be based off of science and the law”, that the vaccines developed will have to be proven completely safe, to be used.  And on this part, maybe, it would be debatable, that the vaccines can, keep people in this country safe and secured, let alone, the world.  If the vaccine is working, we needed to follow the rules, the international standards, yet, the president stated that it should, follow the “law and science”.  Now, looking at the black box operations of checking the working proceedings of the vaccines, if science can be validated, the secret is in “if the government says so!”

The Tsai government, in order, to give birth to the nation’s own produced vaccines, willing to sacrifice science, and democracy too, she’s, WAY better, than Trump!  And, Japan and Korea are also, making their own, vaccines, and they’d all gone by the books, gone into the third-stage clinical trials; comparing, the high up officials here, directed the evaluation systems to make it leap forward.  Currently, both Korea and Japan had, put out the strategic defenses against the mutated strains, hoping to gain the approvals of W.H.O., so their vaccines are, approved by the world.  Comparing, Medigenvac only has the validations of the spits of the government here, how could it, make the world better?

Tsai’s plans of making the country’s own production of vaccines shine, should get ahead of the Korean, the Japanese governments, to push for the vaccines of Medigenvac to be listed on the emergency use list of WHO, that way, the COVAX platform can make the country’s vaccines to help other nations, and it can, help fulfill the dreams of the president in biotechnology.

The twin brothers of Medigevac, Novavax, along with the Chinese Zhifeishengwu, already put in their, applications; and if Medigenvac can be a part of that world, all it needs, is that, try.  Otherwise, if Medigenvac can’t even be listed as a verifiable vaccine on the vaccine passports, who can it benefit?

And so, this, is how fucking (don’t pardon me here!) retarded this government of this country is, the president put ALL her eggs in this one basket, and, passed the emergency use mandates of this vaccine brand, and she’d claimed that its, efficacy is better, and yet, there’s NO statistical papers published, because all of that is, “top-secret” in government, and the government still, bullshits its people here.  The reason why the president didn’t get this brand of vaccines up for evaluation, is she KNOWS, that it would, NOT pass the standards!

If You Can’t Even, Get Along Well Enough with Your Mother-in-Law, How the HELL Do You Expect to Get Along with Your Daughters-in-Law???

Uh, this is what I call, a STUPID QUESTION, so, SCRATCH that “last statement” on how there are, NO stupid questions as I’d, stated, previously…

If you can’t even, get along well enough with your mother-in-law, and how the HELL do you expect to get along with your daughters-in-law?  You can’t, and, no matter how you say, that you won’t repeat what your @#$%ED up mothers-in-law DID to you when you married those, mother @$#%ERS (still NOT name calling here!), you will still, fall, into, that vicious cycle, even IF you do have, enough, awareness, ‘cuz, it takes, more than awareness, to map out that, brand new course.

And yet, what the @$%# (maxed out) would I know?  I’m still, unmarried, with NO children (not physically!), but heck, I still, know my SHIT ‘round this subject, so, don’t doubt me.

The thing is, we will all, pass down how we were, mistreated, by our own, mothers-in-law to our own, daughters-in-law, because that, is just how humans behave, and, there’s, NO way, of, snapping, OUT of this, vicious cycle, unless, you have, that extra-sensitive perception (not like clairvoyance, I’m afraid…), and is, super, duper aware, of, everything that’s, currently, happening all around you, otherwise, you will, NEVER break out of that, vicious cycle, and I got NO need to worry ‘bout getting STUCK, inside, that “vortex” cuz???  Oh yeah, I got, ZERO plans of getting married (just bring that GUN to my wedding, as I’d stated previously???), got NO need to have this, already DEAD daughter of mine, and yes, I still, endured through, a whole lot of, abuse AND neglect, along with, other forms, versions, of BULLSHIT you can, or can’t, ever, imagine, so, do NOT, question my authority on here, ‘k???

Mommy is in need of her F-I-V-E, so, class is, no longer in session, ‘til next time, my “children”…

Uh, you have GOT to be, shitting me on here and, I do apologize (N-O-T!) for my, condescending, tone of voice…for this one, N-O-T!

What, would make you willing to, take me back?  Nothing, nothing should make you, WANT me again, but, I know you’re still, hung on to me, I’m now the one, with the leash, tightening, around that, doggy NECK of, yours, and, there’s, NOTHING you can do, to BREAK away, from being, under, MY control………

And so, here’s, that “RE-CAP”, of that lesson that needed to be learned here: no matter what s/he says, do NOT, take her/him, back, especially after s/he had, cheated, lied, and other bad things, because, you’ll only get, sucked, back, INTO, that god damn, vortex that took you, FOREVER (literally!), to get out, and, if you fall into that abyss again, there’s, NO guarantee, that you will be able to, get yourself back out of it, in one piece.

So, don’t be stupid, don’t take ANYONE back!

Saving the Second Dosages Foolishly, but, the Ordinary Citizens Who Wanted to Get Vaccinated Couldn’t

This just showed, how if the system hadn’t been set up correctly from the beginning, everything falls to pieces, and, there’s, this, HUGE mess of things as the systems started, getting put to work!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Moderna vaccines are hot right now, and not everybody who wants a dose can, get one, there are still, the early childhood educators, the postal workers who are, waiting for their, first vaccinations, and yet, there’s, the news of about 70,000 shots about to expire.  The command center’s faulty policies in announcing who is allowed to receive the shots, especially for the type seven, that “rolled and adjusted itself constantly”, plus the local government’s lacking in efficiency in handing out the vaccines to the various medical units, causing the low efficiencies of vaccination.

There’s, a limited amount of Moderna vaccines, split among too many hospitals.  At the start of the large-scale vaccinations, there are many hospitals that were, offering the vaccinations, with the larger numbers of doses given, but toward the end, the amount of doses were, limited, reduced, while there are still, the same number of hospitals in need, plus there’s, not enough vaccines sent and received by the various hospital units each time, the hospitals dared not sent out too many slots, and, we the people are like fighting for that, hard to get concert ticket, which severed off the efficiencies of the vaccinations being, administered.

and here’s, what the, sing up looks, like…

Then, there’s, the complexities of the members of those who are getting the vaccinations, “the workers of central government, getting their vaccinations locally”, especially for type seven, there were, the rosters set up by the various units of government, and, there’s no unified standardized operating procedures for it, not only did it cause chaos during the vaccination processes, type seven can only head to the designated hospitals to fight for the limited number of slots, with a shortened period of signing up for the vaccinations, which caused the rate of vaccination to drop.

Foolishly saving up the second doses, but, whether or not it will be used up, nobody knows.  Because the Moderna vaccines are set for various groups, various hospitals, with the different date of expirations, surely, the government saves up the vaccines, for the second dosages, and yet, there may be those who don’t come for their second doses for whatever reasons, or had already gone to another hospital for their second dose, and the hospital can only, keep that second dose saved up, blindly, which still, delayed the processes of vaccination, making the public who wanted the Moderna vaccines, wait on like fools, with the calls, that jammed up the vaccination hotlines in the hospitals.

and here’s, the platform that the government set up, that’s still not, “functional” enough! from online

The Central Government would rather recycle the unused vaccines assigned to the various hospitals from before, then, collect them, and, reassign them back out again, priding itself, on the system online, for setting up the complete proceedings of the vaccination process for type seven, why not, let the central government take over the assigning of the doses from the beginning, and speed up the vaccination of Moderna vaccines, “letting type seven be assigned by the government”, and giving the local hospitals, the entry level position hospital workers a difficult time, then, placing the blames with the local governments, and if these issues aren’t tackled soon, it’s the same as, wasting the precious resources of the limited amount of vaccines we are getting here.

And so this, is how the bureaucracy works, too many, red tapes, not enough of a smooth flow of the workings of the proceedings, that’s why, we’re, having the situations of, vaccines on the verge of expiration, and a lot of us still hadn’t, received, our first shot yet, and it’s still, all because of the government’s, faulty, policies, and we the people are continually, getting @#$%ED up here!  And there’s, NOTHING we C-A-N, do!!!

Why is it, that the KMT Was Also, Borderlined, When It’s the DDP that’s, Failed in Its, Policies?

So, which one of you, is, the LESSER of, the “two evils” again?  Oh wait, you’re both, NOT good, and so, why would we the people, vote for either of you guys???  Oh yeah, we still go to the polls because, if we don’t, the party that’s currently, ruined this god damn, @#$%ING, country, commentaries, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

After the contracts of FoxConn and TMSC’s donations of the vaccines from BioNTech were signed, the chairperson of the KMT, Jiang demanded that Tsai’s government based off of the ratios of buying up the vaccines, to allow counties of Nantou and three more others, to buy the vaccines; the government used the excuse of how the policies of vaccines needed to consider the whole picture, that there’s, more than enough for everybody to get, to deny Jiang’s requests.  The mayor of Taipei, Ke wanted to buy the vaccines using the debtor system, as Jiang asked Ke to go find Tsai to discuss the matters with her, Ke coldly replied, “we’ll deal with the game of political spitting after this obstacle is tackled”.  In the measures of defense on the matter of vaccines, the DDP clearly, lost the people’s heart, while, Go received the gratitude from the people, Ke created the volumes of the online communities, while, the KMT risked becoming, borderlined.

The failed policies of defense against the spread of MERS-CoV cause the polls to drop for the DDP, but, the KMT didn’t win out.  Even as the heads of Hsinbei City, Hou, Taichung’s Lu, along with other heads who are of the KMT party were all affirmed on their measures in protecting against the spread of MERS, but, their individual rise in popularity, didn’t, help the KMT one bit.  On the matter of defense against the spread, the assistance, along with the vaccines, although Jiang made fun of how the DDP “gets whipped by the KMT, and moves one step forward”, worrying the citizens of the country, but, the KMT lacked actions effectively too, it’d, made the people, collectively upset over how both parties aren’t, doing enough, and, it’d, added on to how the primary political parties are, incompetent.

Go’s purchasing and donating the vaccines, “bearing with the shames himself”, broke past the obstacles Tsai set for him, and even as he was, publicly, made fun of by Su, the head of legislature, how the DDP’s, libeling against him for leaning toward Communist China, Go still firmly, pushed the proceedings, to the point of giving the ultimatum, demanding to see the president personally, and finally, he’d, broken the barriers set by the government officials, and, successfully, helped Taiwan buy in some of the vaccines that we’d, desperately, needed.  While FoxxCon’s success in buying the vaccines, showed how the Tsai government failed, and broke the lies of her stating, “The local communities can’t get the vaccines”.  No matter how the Tsai government tried to take the credit at the end, Go’s hard work, and every moment he’d put into, making the vaccine purchases successful, we the people are taking in.

Comparatively, the KMT, rather than riding on the tail of Go’s success, to fight for the votes, a lot of the people here, just about, forgot, the meaning of existence of this party that’s, not in power currently.  Jiang is hurried to lead the KMT’s four counties and cities, to “force the government” out, to break through their own bad image of “not doing a thing”, knowing that the Tsai government wouldn’t allow, but, if the KMT doesn’t do anything, people will soon, forget the party’s existence as well.  Besides, Jiang is faced with the challenges of keeping his position as the leader of the party, with Cho’s coming after his position; Cho’s announcement for the leader of the party, clearly stated, how shortened the leadership of the KMT became, that there’s no sign of mobility in the party’s, trying, to take control of the country back again, that it’d, lacked the roles of the party out of power, being, a check and balance system for the party in power.  How much support Cho will receive is yet to be seen, but, it’d, added to Jiang’s, pressures now.

The KMT are in control of fourteen cities and counties in the country, and claimed that they’d, set up, a “defense against MERS-CoV league”, but, on the buying of the vaccines, it can only, get a total of four counties of Nantou, Yunlin, Hualien, Taidong, it’d not received the supports from Hou of Hsinbei, Lu of Taichung, these bigger cities’ mayors’, supports.  While the party in the legislature other than shouting aloud, it’d not had, any, effective tactics, and they’re, ever the more, worried of the DDP’s and the net armies’ “reddening” them.  And even as the DDP failed in its policies in helping us to defend against MERS, the KMT couldn’t even work up the strengths, to fight for something more for the people.  And so, even as the people are, too disappointed over Tsai’s rule, the KMT still, couldn’t, manage to get the people’s, trust either.

What’s even odder is, the former chairperson of the KMT, Wu published a book, disclosed of the “insider details” that all of us knew of already of the 2020 Presidential Election.  And yet, as the outbreaks are hitting us hard, we are all worried over that, while Wu still, counted up the done-me-wrongs, evading responsibilities, placing the blames, pointing the fingers, as for those legislators he’d left in the legislature, don’t know what their functions were, in the war against MERS-CoV?  At this time, who gives a SHIT about how the KMT lost the last presidential election?  The KMT fell to the point where the DDP didn’t even want to take a second look at it, as it fought against their rules, and the internal fight within the party still ongoing, pointing fingers, placing the, blames on each other, how can it, get away from the fates of the party’s, being, borderlined, as the party is, fighting to regain the control of the legislative department?

Why is it, that the DDP lost the points, and the points aren’t, won over by the KMT?  Other than the People’s Party, the biggest problem of the KMT is its, own selfish fights, not taking a stand, not shouldering up the responsibility for the country.  After the party got out of power, the KMT stopped, showing its ability, to lead the country to become, independent, and only learned the old school measures of the party not in power, other than talking trash about the party in power, not known, how to, get into the masses.  Especially, with the chairperson of the party being so, narrow-minded, couldn’t collect the powers of the masses that are now, against DDP’s ruling the country, and its party members together, how can it, innovate?  This sort of a party that’s not in power, is it, that important, who becomes, the leader of the party?

And so, this, is still on how we the people will be selecting for the LESSER of TWO evils the next time election time rolls around, because this party that’s no longer in power, could NOT get its acts together, without the leaders that can, actually, turn the party’s workings around, there’s, NO way that this party will win in the next election, and we the people are still, SCREWED over, because look at how awful the DDP had, ruined us, with its, stupid policies, with its, delays in getting the shipments of the needed number of vaccines into the country, with people who are, dying left and right, and yet, the KMT still also, didn’t, prove to us, that it can, do something better, and so, we the people, are, SCREWED over, no matter WHICH party takes power the next time!

Chen Should NOT Use Emotional Blackmail on the Matters of Defense Against the Spread of MERS-CoV, Instead He Should Rely on the Scientific

Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, on how the head of defense against MERS-CoV is all talk, and nothing more, translated…

The commander of the CDC, Chen has power in his hands, not only did he hold control over ALL the resources, all the measures of defense against the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, every word out of his mouth, was also, carefully, examined by all.  The most memorable words of late, was how his feeling “defeated” over how the outside world interpreted the government’s means of buying up the vaccines for being nontransparent for all to see and know, along with his “sense of upset”, his intentions of suing the KMT for the accusations of his improper behaviors as the commander.

still huffing, puffing, and the country’s going to, B-L-O-W because of him!

the head of defense against MERS-CoV, still, bullshitting! Photo form online

Chen’s usage of speech, was a seemingly uncle next door, super kind, like a sort of a “connection between people”; there were the empty promises made of “getting ahead of the rest”, or the seemingly, expert jargons which he used, but as the statistics and his claims don’t correspond to one another, he’d not talked of the operational problems, instead, used the “review and returned”.  And every time Chen spoke something, it’d, sparked up the society’s discussions.

But, the defense against the spread of MERS-CoV is a serious matter, and, those words he’d spoken can only be, the jokes of after meal tea time for the public, we can’t stop, focusing on the more important matters here, and, can’t dodge if there are, the executive responsibilities in the defense against the spread of MERS-CoV, and, fighting the spread IS a matter of science, there’s no need for personal opinions on every single related matter, no need for emotional blackmail either, to reply back to the doubts, the questions of the local communities all around, use the evidence, to show, that, is the best measures.  Like how the expert discussion forums of the nation’s own produced vaccines hold no written nor recorded records, the outside world couldn’t understand how the company, Medigenvac’s passing the emergency use requirements, and it can’t, get rid of the doubts that we the people, have of this, vaccine.

The government is to serve the people, and limited in power by a democracy, evaluated by the judiciary branch, under the examinations of the public, all of this, is natural, and only using the facts, the efficiency, not putting on a show, no matter how good the lines are, it can’t, change how we the people, feel about it.

And this is on how the government is all talk, and NO actions, the government had, delayed all of us here, in getting the vaccines we are in dire need of, to defend us against MERS, and now, because it had stakes in the national brand of unproven-as-effective methods of making the vaccines, all of us, people here, will turn into, lab rats, for the government’s, virology, experiment, and that’s, just not right!  Where’s OUR rights, huh???

Twenty Dollars N.T.

How this, twenty-dollars’ worth of kindness became, so much greater than it’d, started out as, translated…

It was around noontime, as I exited the post office, found the skies, covered with dark clouds, and because I didn’t have my  umbrella, I’d, hastened my pace, wanted to make it home before the rain came down.

As I was waiting for the lights to turn green at the intersections, I’d found an elderly man in his sixties, on a wheelchair, with a yellowed towel under his neck from below his mask, with the beads of sweats, popping out from his forehead constantly, that extended to his knees, with a bamboo sift, lined with the green lotus leaves, inside were, two tiny bags of ylang ylang, with a piece of paper that said a bag for $20.  Because of how hot it was, he kept using his right hand with only his thumb and pinky left, to hook the towel up on his neck, to wipe himself down, with his palmless left hand, he’d, clung tightly, onto that wheel on the left.

something small like this…

split, among her neighbors…photo from online

As I bent over to buy some flowers from him, he’d told me that because of the outbreaks, there’s, no business on the streets, that’s why after the noon hours, he still had a lot left.  I’d told him it would be all right, that I want it all, then, he could go home then.  He’d, paused a bit, and told me, courteously, that I only needed one pack, that the season of the bloom was quite short, in two, three days, the flowers will be black, and lose the aromas, that I’d be wasting my money if I bought more.

His “would be a waste” touched me, normally, those who sold the items, only wanted to sell the merchandises, as for what happened afterwards, they couldn’t, care less.

As I got home, I’d, given the flowers to my neighbors, hoping, that every house get to, bathe in the sweet scent, and hope, that through this tiny sort of sharing, I can greet my neighbors, whom I hadn’t seen regularly during this period of outbreak.  Although, I’d only give two flowers to every neighbor, but the neighbors were all very, surprised, they all thanked me, and we’d, wished each other, a safe passage.

I could’ve, never imagined, that the twenty-dollars N.T. I’d spent, made me see the kindness of the man who’d sold it, and also given me the pleasures, of seeing those radiant smiles blooming, from under my neighbors’ masks, and I was happy over this, for a, very long time.

And so, the man who sold the flowers was grateful for you helping him out, and, he didn’t cheat you, because he felt your kindness, and, you’d, passed that kindness you felt from him, to your, neighbors, through these, simple acts, kindness is, rolling around the world.

With Only 820,000 Doses Remaining, the 2.27 Million of the Population are Waiting on the Second Dosage of Their Moderna Vaccines

The vaccines are finally, arriving but still, at the rate of, turtle, or maybe even, snail, too slowly…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The shipments of the vaccines are arriving in, but still, falling short of what’s needed, those who want their second doses of Moderna will wait longer.  Currently, we’d only received twenty-two-percent of the doses of what the country had, purchased, plus the 2.5 million doses as gifts to us from U.S., there are currently, 3.65 million doses of Moderna vaccines.  The commander, Chen told, that to increase the vaccination rate of our people, the command center took in the references of other countries, and, extended the second doses to ten to twelve weeks, and in the future, this vaccination period will get adjusted, with the arrival of the shipments of the vaccines.

Currently, there are, only 3.65 million doses, with 282.6 million of the population already vaccinated, with the rate of use being seventy-seven percent.  And in Taiwan, there are only 2,769,000 people who’d received their first vaccinations.  While the arrival date of Moderna vaccines is still, uncertain, there were, only 824,000 doses left, and those who had their very first vaccination worried, that in the future, they may not have a second dose.

Chen stated, that he’s being, extra careful and tentative of all the arrival dates of all the shipments of the vaccines, at the same time, considering saving the doses for those who are due their second vaccination, and needing to expand the number of population in need of the vaccinations, that it’s too complex to calculate the total number.

The command center on July 12th, for the first type, the pilots, along with the pregnant women, the first three types, set up the second vaccination to until twenty-eight days after their first doses, but for all other groups, the time had been lengthened to ten to twelve weeks for their second vaccinations.  Chen stated, that this was decided on, after the experts had, discussed, reviewed over the data of Moderna vaccines from other countries.

The head of the new-age virology research department of Changgang University, Shih stressed, that the mRNA vaccines are different than the adenovirus vaccines, there’s no best length in regards to Moderna vaccines, but for the Astra-Zeneca vaccines, research had found, that if the vaccinations are too close to each other, it would cause the antibodies to develop fully and completely, that it would not be, as, effective.

And so, that’s still, just making excuses for the delays of why we’re, still NOT getting enough vaccines to inoculate everybody who needs, it’s still, bullshit, only that the government now has, “scientific proofs” from other country’s researches, making their delays in inoculating everybody who needs it here, valid, and by delaying the people, more are going to die, and, apparently, the government thinks, that not enough ARE, DEAD yet!

A Cycle of Kindness

Because of the kindness, shown by those graduated, older school members to you, making you, more than willing, to give back to your younger schoolmates too now, this is, an amazing, cycle of help, of kindness that keeps, rolling down, translated…

My son stayed in his room a long time, I’d asked him what he was up to?  He’d told me he will be in a webcam meeting in a bit, to train his younger schoolmates on the techniques of interview.  I’d questioned, that it wasn’t him who’s taking the exams, he’d replied, “back then, my older schoolmates had helped me the same way, of course I am going to help my younger schoolmates now too!”  wow, my son is, really, grown up!  This was, very truth, back then, my son wasn’t, too articulate, a geek too, wanted to become noted in the excellent bunches of students from Jien-Guo High School, not an easy thing.  But gladly, his older schoolmates were, more than willing, to coach him, they’d come back to school to rehearse with him every weekend, and finally, it’d helped my son get into his desired major of medicine.

Of them, the most helpful person was the one who’d, connected my son with his older schoolmates, his homeroom instructor, she’d treated her students like they were her own children, and all the students were, more than, grateful toward her, with a call from her, all of her students would drop everything, and came to her aid.

Especially, the year my son graduated, everybody made the higher grades, and, it’s all on how those graduated students’ willingness to put in the time on their weekends, to share with those younger schoolmates the tips of going into the interviews, to how to prepare the information package to bring to the interviews, etc., etc., etc., and on Memorial Day weekend, they’d, trained them from 8:30 in the morn, to five in the afternoon, to allow the younger schoolmates to get the stance they’d needed, when they are in the interviews, and I was, more than, moved by these, older class members’, giving, there were, a total of twelve students who got into the medical department.

More importantly, these experience of having something offered to them, made these kids know how to give back.  It’s said, that children who are intelligent, were all, selfish, but on my son, and his classmates, I’d, found that, cycle of kindness that, repeated itself.  Because they knew, that they couldn’t get into the universities of their choices, had it not been the older school members’ returning on the weekends to help them prepare, so, they’d, followed in their older school members’ footsteps, returned back every year to help their younger schoolmates, and not only of the same school, my son and his college classmates would also, work together, to help the high school students in the Yunling, Chiayi areas to the highest, the topnotch universities in Taiwan too.

Later I’d asked my son, why did he do this much?  He’d said, that the countryside doesn’t have as much resources as in the cities, if because of their helping out, the kids from the countryside can, have the opportunities to get into the more prestigious universities, wouldn’t that be, amazing?  Hearing this, I’d found, that my son has, grown up, knew to trace to the origins, willing to help others, this would make me happier, than his, making the good grades.

This shows, how the cycle of kindness, can also, snowball, with the previous generations of graduates, coming back to the high school to help the graduating students prepare for their, entrance college interviews, giving them tips, helping them get into the majors of their choices, now, these younger school members, are, paying it forward, because they were, shown the kindness, by the previous generations of graduates, that’s why, they’re now, more than willing, to give back too.

Apollo 11

The missions to space, a tiny step for a man, a huge leap, for mankind!  The intrigues of what lies beyond…translated…

Recently, I’d watched a very special documentary, “Apollo 11”.  This film was screened in 2019, but it’s a story that’s been filmed completely, back in 1969: the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.  The film completely collected the precious footage from back then, with the editing, through the remastering by the digital process, the images came in full-color, like it was, yesterday, and you can’t tell, that the original footage was from fifty years ago.  And those who didn’t know it, would think, that this was, a new astronaut film by Hollywood.  The film was a little over an hour and a half long, like the viewers were, walking into, NASA headquarters, sitting at the Houston Space Center, and, are all involved, in this mission to the moon, it’s, such, an amazing film!

After watching the documentary, my space soul seemed to have, been, awakened.  I’m a bit embarrassed to say, that becoming an astronaut, was my childhood dream at age seven, back then, I’d, taken the liberty, to remember all the stars in the Solar System, the galaxies, the harder to remember names, and at my science fair, I’d made a Harley’s Comet model, and, pulled along my younger brothers, to carry that star chart, onto the add-on asbestos rooftop, to find the constellations with me, and we all got, bitten all over our bodies by the mosquitoes.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, the words of, Armstrong, was also, among those who were on Apollo 11th to outer space, also, the very first man who’d, set foot on the moon.  But in the documentary, as I saw him set foot out, and blurted out this memorable classic line, I’d, chuckled……………

these are the brave men of the mission

“This is way too serious emotion, the voices, way too, matter-of-fact, this isn’t, from improvisations, or thought of at the moment, but from what he’d rehearsed of what he would say when he was not yet up in space!”, I’d, guessed.

Armstrong and his companions rode to the moon successfully on Apollo 11th to the moon, and, made America win in the space race with Russia, and so, the conspiracy theory that were disputed on how the Americans had, cheated had, never ceased.  The doubters firmly believed, that all the scenes were the from NASA having Kubric, the director, to film in the studios.  Similar political conspiracy theory in the film, “Wag the Dog” in 1997 was portrayed to perfection, the American president was involved in a sex scandal, the crises management team leader, portrayed by Robert DeNiro found the Hollywood producer portrayed by Dustin Hoffman to help, used the special effects of the movies, made a film on the war in Albania, and successfully, diverted the public’s attention, dissolved the crises, and, allowed the president’s popularity to hike up higher than ever before.

But, the same point of creation, used in the movie, “Interstellar” by Chris Nolan, became how the U.S. government used the Apollo spaceship going to the moon, as an untruth, a conspiracy theory, to destroy the credibility of NASA, to keep people on earth, to fight the matter of world hunger.

Truth in fiction, fiction, in truth, it’s, all in the eyes of, the beholders, of course, and all of this, was, riding off of Apollo 11’s fame.  And, everybody only remembers the very first man who’d, succeeded, as for those that failed, like Apollo first, second to the tenth that kept trying, or those that came after, the 12th, the 14th, to the end, Apollo 17th, they never got, the attention.  (the journey of Apollo 13, was a disaster, that ended up, will little damages, and it’d also been made, into film).

The Apollo missions that won worldwide fame, and cost a lot, finally came to an end by the end of 1972, until this very day, there’s no humans, setting foot onto the moon again.  I’d heard, that NASA announced its brand new plan to send the astronauts to the moon in 2024, while the Asian woman, Kjell Lindgren might be on it, it’s really, exciting!

Oh, and it’s July 20th today, the fifty-second anniversary of the first man, setting foot on the moon!

And so, these are, the space missions, with the purpose of???  Oh yeah, see WHO gets there first, Russians, Chinese, Americans, etc., etc., etc., and, there are, just, too many, fantasies we all have of, outer space, of what’s, out in the, unknowns of other parts of the solar systems that’s still, unexplored yet, that’s why, people are still, mildly, intrigued, just not as much as people had been, back, fifty, sixty, seventy years ago though, but we are still, somewhat, intrigued by, what’s, “out there”, in outer space…
