  文化面面观

  San Juan & Jamba Juice

  1. San Juan

  San Juan, capital, largest city, chief port, and commercial and cultural center of Puerto Rico. The city is named after Saint John the Baptist (Spanish: San Juan Bautista). The latest census estimates place the city's population at 433,733, making it the 42nd-largest city under the jurisdiction of the United States. It is also the oldest European settlement in United States territory.

  Coffee, tobacco, sugar, and fruit are exported from the busy port, mainly to the United States. San Juan's industries include tourism, brewing, distilling, and publishing; manufactures include metal products, cement, and clothing. The city is Puerto Rico's financial center and has many international banks and business corporations. San Juan also has an international airport. The city's old section, situated on two rocky islets guarding one of the best harbors in the Caribbean, is linked by bridges with the mainland.

  The bay was named Puerto Rico (rich port) by Ponce de León, who in 1508 founded a settlement at nearby Caparra. In 1521 the settlement was moved across the bay to San Juan's present site. Strongly fortified, it withstood attacks by English buccaneers in 1595 but succumbed for a few months in 1598 to George Clifford, earl of Cumberland, and was sacked by the Dutch in 1625. San Juan's port gained increasing importance during the 18th and 19th cent. U.S. troops occupied the city during the Spanish-American War in 1898.

  In the old city, whose narrow streets, small shops, and houses with overhanging balconies recall a colonial atmosphere, there are impressive historic buildings: El Morro castle (begun 1539), which commands the harbor entrance and is a national monument; San Cristóbal castle (begun 1631), originally a Spanish fort; and La Fortaleza (begun 1529), a former fort now used as the governor's official residence. Other San Juan landmarks include San José Church (founded c.1523), the oldest church in continuous use in the Western Hemisphere; Casa Blanca (1523); and the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, which contains the tomb of Ponce de León. Also in the city are the Univ. of Puerto Rico and its School of Tropical Medicine, the College of the Sacred Heart, a campus of the InterAmerican Univ. of Puerto Rico, and the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico. Nearby are several resort beaches (notably the Condado and Isla Verde), which attract tourists from North America.

  2. Jamba Juice

  Jamba Juice is a chain of smoothie restaurants headquartered in San Francisco, California with 533 locations operating in 26 states, the District of Columbia and the Bahamas. 324 locations are company-owned and 209 locations are franchised. For the 12 months ending January 10, 2006, system wide sales were $345 million, which included sales of $230 million from company locations. The company has achieved a compound annual growth rate of 20% per year over the last three fiscal years.

  Jamba Juice was founded by Kirk Perron, Joe Vergara, Kevin Peters, and Linda Olds in 1990 as California Juice Club in San Luis Obispo, California. In 1995 Juice Club changed its name to Jamba Juice. It is known as one of the top smoothie stores worldwide. The company's website claims that "Jamba" derives from the "African" word "Jama," which means "to celebrate, taking care of body, mind and soul is a way of celebrating life."

  Jamba has an operating agreement with Whole Foods to sell only "natural" products inside some of their locations, which includes their smoothies' ingredients. For this reason, offerings at Whole Foods sites may differ from those at stand-alone sites.

  我观之我见

  据说 Michael 是有“低危忧郁症”的,这样的人天生就对环境刺激特别敏感,并比普通人容易在更短的时间内接收并处理更多更综合的信息,看到一件东西能立刻联想到特别多的事情。如果这种能力出现在低智商的人身上,那么这个人就可能得到精神病;如果这种能力出现在高智商的人身上,那么这个人就会是天才,有着极高的创造力。万幸的是,我们的 Michael 是个智商极高的人,看看他设计出来的越狱计划,他纹在身上的密码,还有他在这么短的时间内组织越狱队伍的能力,说他是个天才真是一点都不过分。不过,不知这个天才有没有想到过和他在一起的亡命徒出狱后还是会继续作恶,以他的智慧应该知道这些人是不可能改好的吧,越狱的后果他想过了么?
