You can think of it as the cross, except for Judaism.
The Star of David is made up of two triangles together, except one is upside down.
Most importantly, I think, it is the culture shock I’m undergoing and the comparison between the two countries, one is where I come from, another is where I’m living in, that make the diary not only unique but also representative for me.
the di About a thousand years ago, in Tang dynasty, Chinese and Japanese governments had been exchanging scholars to communicate in culture, literature, politic, religion and even technology.
Three Things I Would Put In A Time Capsule I would put three things into my time capsule, a set of my favorite books, my cherished Star of David, and some family recipes.
A time capsule is a big metal capsule that can contain things that are important to the person, and important to the future.The reason I would put this in my time capsule is that I believe in Judaism and I wear my Star of David every day.I would also put this in my time capsule just in case the religion is forgotten in the future, if they look find this symbol they might be able to piece the religion back together.There are also period photos from all over the state, city directories, legislative documents, various books and journals, a whole slew of information.There are a few drawbacks: the available images aren’t always of the best quality and the search function doesn’t always turn up the results, especially from the school newspapers.So, when looking for something in those publications, sometimes the old-school approach—a page-by-page search—yields better results. For example, while they do have issues of Daniel Baker’s , they don’t have any of the issues from Tevis Clyde Smith’s reign as editor, hence none of Bob Howard’s poems.But the issues they do have, especially when coupled with the yearbooks, provide a good picture of what it must have been like to be a student there in the 1920s.Unfortunately, some of the material was not available for viewing on that first visit, and I ended up returning to HPU several more times in the years that followed, each time getting more and different information, much of which has appeared on this blog. Not only do they have the files from Howard Payne, but also the archives from Daniel Baker College (where Clyde Smith and Novalyne Price attended), Mc Murray College (Austin Newton’s alma mater), and many others.Each college’s collection of catalogues, yearbooks, and school newspapers are available in searchable format. And that’s not all that’s available on the website.They built the first railway, established the first university and changed the thoughts of people towards science and technology (before that the majority of Chinese people regard these things as monsters).Hundreds of years have passed since that time, Chinese people are still going abroad to study, are we still expecting the same thing as our forerunners? We are still looking for the technology and skills, we want to acquire the latest and most advanced skills to help us to get good jobs and earn decent lives.
