List of Useful Characters for Writing Chinese Commercial Letters [07 Apr 2017|07:13am]

Knowing the meaning of the Chinese character is absolutely significant, especially at the initial stage of the Chinese language learning. Pay attention to not overloading each character with the meanings.

One meaning per each Chinese character is quite enough at the starting point of learning. In case the Chinese character is met for the first time the mind needs to create and link the writing of the Chinese character with one of its meanings.

Other meanings of the same Chinese character can be presented during the following lessons when this character is met in the new contexts.

The TERTANGALA wants YOU! (to celebrate its Birthday) [09 Jun 2007|04:55pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

The Tertangala is 45 years old so we are having a party. You are all invited... to submit content!! Deadline for submissions to the next edition of the Tertangala is June 29 (Friday). Help us celebrate our 45th Birthday in our extra-special anniversary edition.

We want your news pieces, feature articles, fiction, rants, letters to the editor, photos, poems, cartoons and… well whatever you’d like really! We’re calling out to all Tertangala writers (past and present), students, journalists, academics, writers, artists, activists and all our friends, family and even household pets to submit as much content as you humanly can by the deadline.

The Tertangala is under-threat, and if we are shutting down - well fuck it we are going to go out with a bloody loud bang!

To submit an article or get involved with production, email media@wusa.uow.edu.au - or leave a comment here on LJ asking for more info.

This is going to be a huge edition that celebrates the magazines life until now, so don't miss out on your chance to be involved.

Why would you want to be invovled? Well... the Tertangala has been a staple of the UOW community, has been quoted in federal parliament, and has won national acclaim (we were previously named one of the top-5 student magazines in the country and won awards for investigative journalism!). Past writers and editors have gone on to become esteemed playwrights, actors, directors, poets, writers and journalists working at places like The Chaser, Rolling Stone, Vogue Magazine and The Australian.

For more information go here: http://wusa.uow.edu.au/media

Anyhow, aside from me wanking on about the Tertangala - how is everyone? xx

Hello, everyone! I saw a few people from the uni at the South Coast Writer's Center here in Wollongong last Wednesday, when I was going to a local writers group there on the same night that they were watching movies for a film history class. From the brief glimpses I got, you guys seemed to be watching the 7th Seal.

Well, if anyone reads this who's with the creative writing class that meets there, I guess I'm trying to find out if it would be alright for me and my girlfriend to come in and watch with you guys every once in a while. We're SCWC members and local writers (if being an unpublished writer makes you a writer, that is...) and won't make a peep. Anyone around who could let me know about this?

University of Wollongong Faculty of Law presents:


Major Michael Mori United States Marine Corps

Friday 15 December 2006
McKinnon Building
University of Wollongong

David Hicks’ detention in Guantanamo Bay since December 2001 has raised
broad concerns about the balance between national security and legal
protection in the context of the “war on terror”. As David Hicks'
defence lawyer since November 2003, Major Mori is in a unique position
to assess these concerns. In this lecture, Major Mori will reflect on
the law’s capacity to protect due process and principles of fairness in
a national and international political environment where the appropriate
balance between ‘rights’ and ‘security’ is deeply contested. Major Mori
will examine whether the new /Military Commissions Act/, which was
signed by President Bush on 17 October 2006, provides the framework for
a fair trial for David Hicks and other Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session.

Major Mori’s address is one of three public events being held in
conjunction with the 23rd Australasian Law and Society Conference:
“Right or Racket?: The Protection of Law”, hosted by the Legal
Intersections Research Centre and the Faculty of Law, University of
Wollongong. The other events are:

The scarf! [27 Sep 2006|10:54am]


Background story. I gave my friend a scarf. It took me ages to buy/make/blah. He does not recall losing it but i seem to have spotted it on a random girl at uni. He has no idea who she is. It's a question of my sanity

p.s.g giving scarf back entails returning it to rightful owner or affiliates

Hey there, I'm just finishing up year 12 and looking around for any inside info anyone may have on the Loftus campus of UOW.

I want to do Event Management, but it seems to be extremely uncommon at uni's in NSW and seems to be only offered through a Bachelor of Business Administration at the Loftus Campus.

Does any one do this course? Know anyone who does this course? Or have any general insight on whether Loftus is quality? Cheers =)

I am calling out for papers, articles, art or any other means of expression for my Post-Graduate women's newsletter. The newsletter is to be distributed electronically in Australia and I am advertising for postgraduate women or women who have recently graduated from a postgraduate degree to submit an entry. Of course articles that are a shorter version of a paper/thesis from a research student are most welcome. Creative entries of creative writing, art, poetry or a review are welcome too. If you do not have anything of such nature but would prefer to write a short article on a topic, topics recently discussed regarding postgraduate women here have been gender balance, children and postgraduate study, safety issues on campus and sexism within student politics. Please respond with an item for entry, a title, your "everyday" name at either my livejournal or my email address capa_women@yahoo.com.au
You are most welcome to submit to my first australian postgraduate women's newsletter that will be distributed to postgrad student offices across Australia that are affiliated with CAPA electronically.

Best wishes,

CAPA's women's officer for 2005 & 2006

Maths T-Shirts [19 May 2006|10:27am]

[ mood | excited ]

Ever wanted to have a shirt that proclaimed the truth to whoever read it?

Together with screen-printing company, I've arranged to have a batch mathematics-themed t-shirts printed. Under the cut is an image of what will be on the shirt. I'll leave the design as a surprise until you open it!

You know you want it!Collapse )

If you are interested, it comes in both black and white (with white and black printing respectively) at a price of only $20. The size, across the chest, is as follows:

Womens (They're designed to stretch across the bust)
S - 40.5cm
M - 43cm
L - 45.5cm

S - 50cm
M - 53cm
L - 55cm

The deadline for orders is Monday 22nd, May (this Monday), with payment due by Friday the 26th. This is so we can hopefully get them printed and distributed by the end of exam time.

To make an order, simply email me (Hammond Buckland - hab661@uow.edu.au) with the size and colour (and number if you want more than one) by Monday and I'll arrange a time to collect your payment sometime during the week.

Feel free to send this on to anyone you know that might be interested. If this is popular, there may be more designs to come (including Physics) in the future (including reprints of the current design).
