荒唐的「隔離但平等」:原住民族消失的普選權

文:那莫諾虎(Pangcah阿美族守護聯盟召集人)<p>一、消失的普選權<p>1965年美國以「隔離但平等」原則作政治甚至空間的隔離施政措施,當時仍有數個州排除黑人參政的投票權,在金恩等黑人民權人士積極號召動員抗爭,以投票創造改變(Voting for Change)發起爭取普選運動,才迫使美國政府於1965年《投票權法案》加強了美國憲法第15修正案,並規定,任何人都不應該因種族和膚色而被剝奪投票權。<p>儘管宣稱為「保障」的權利,中華民國卻在選制上巧妙的利用保障名義作參政隔離,將原住民族隔離在以身份作為分別的選區內,並不得獲得一般的普選權利。尤其政治現狀國會仍依循「多數決」原則來議決法案,這所謂保障席次6席僅 …

《電影冷知識》:為什麼現在的好萊塢片大多採「藍橘配色」?

文:許立衡、張凱淯<p>大家都愛用的電影色調<p>還記得上次看到像《駭客任務》(1999)一樣偏螢光綠,或者像《艾蜜莉的異想世界》(Am, 2001)以黃色與綠色為主要色調的好萊塢片是什麼時候嗎?如果你常看好萊塢電影的話,你可能會發現最近大部分的電影在色調上都相差無幾。更準確地來說,十部爆米花片 [1] 當中,可能有八部的主要色調都是藍色與橘色。藍色加橘色的潮流早在2010年就被提出來討論,因為好萊塢在色彩上的多樣性在西元兩千年之後似乎逐漸消失,所有的好萊塢電影似乎都進入了一個以藍色與橘色為主的宇宙裡。人們甚至給這種色彩風格起了一個名字叫Teal and Orange,或者稱之為水鴨色 [2] 與橘色。<p>為 …

游泳姿勢大體檢:任何運動都一樣,移動就是失衡

作者:尼可拉斯.羅曼諾夫、約翰.羅伯遜<p>全都跟轉換支撐有關<p>我們設計出各式各樣的訓練動作都是為了提升水感,水感即是手掌上形成的壓力。<p>—馬丁.奈特(Marty Knight)<p>支撐!支撐!又是支撐!<p>這次你或許會問,游泳又跟支撐有什麼關係?游泳時我們浮在水中靠手把身體往前拉,這不是一種跟重力無關的運動嗎?如果談的是跑步,沒錯,支撐的動作顯而易見。騎自行車時,支撐的概念稍微隱晦了一點,但仔細想想就知道體重是由腳踏車上的坐墊、車手把和兩個踏板輪流支撐的,當愈多的體重轉移到踏板上,功率就愈高。但當我們談到游泳的划手時,又跟支撐與重力有什麼關係呢?<p>關係可大了!支撐與轉換支撐跟所有的運動項目都有關。<p>我們直覺認為游 …

跑步姿勢大體檢:怎麼跑才是正確的「關鍵跑姿」?

作者:尼可拉斯.羅曼諾夫、約翰.羅伯遜<p>跑步中常見的錯誤和矯正方式<p>沒犯過錯的人也不會去嘗試新東西。<p>—愛因斯坦(Albert Einstein,二十世紀最重要科學家)<p>當你在學習新東西時一定會犯錯。犯錯是不可避免的,我們反而要在學習新技巧的過程中,運用錯誤的經驗來進步。在改練新技術的過程中,舊習慣會不斷爬回你的跑姿裡,別擔心,知覺的開發是需要時間的,一開始你知道的有限,動作無法立即做到位是很正常的。<p>犯錯沒關係,但錯要錯的有價值。首先,你必須知道自己錯在哪裡,才能強化新的技術知覺,新的技術植入後,舊的習慣就會自動被取代。反之,如果小問題沒被發現,長久下來就會導致大問題,使你的跑步效率下降,若還是沒改善 …
