[Spark TMC] The coming meeting on 1/25

Dear Sparks and friends,

The next Spark will be held on 1/25 and the meeting theme will be "pets."

There are many health benefits to owning a pet. They can increase opportunities to exercise, get outside, and socialize. Pets can help manage loneliness and depression by giving us companionship. Nowadays animals to humans are not only best friends. Some people even think pets are like their children and use "he or she" instead of "it" to call them. Which is why the word "fur baby / furry kids" pops up. Living with a fur baby will totally make your life different. Have you ever owned pets or dreamed that? Please share your thoughts with us.

For assignment takers, please reply below questions to TME or GE before the meeting. are
Q1: If you can pet any animal, what animal you will choose?
Q2: Share anything about furry kids.

Meeting Time: 19:10~21:10 (expected approach time 18:50)

親愛的火花們及火花朋友,
下一場火花會議將在1/25舉辦,本次的會議主題為「寵物」。

養寵物對於我們的健康好處有很多,其中,情緒穩定及減少孤獨感這部分讓我們與他們建立了特別的心靈橋梁。現在越來越多人將寵物改叫做「毛小孩」,並用「他或她」來代替「它」的使用。這代表這些動物在我們生命中,不僅僅只是過客般的參與,還代表了更多的意義。不知道各位參與者是否養過「毛小孩」或是夢想要養呢?請在會議中與我們分享您的想法。

請有擔任會議角色的成員,在開會前將您分享給總主持人或總講評員。
Q1: 如果你有機會養任何寵物,你會想要養哪一種動物呢?

Q2: 分享任何與毛小孩有關係的事情。不管是你家的,或是朋友家的,也可以是在外面偶遇的。

[Spark TMC] The coming meeting on 1/11

Dear Sparks and friends,

 

The first Spark meeting in 2024 is held on 1/11. The meeting theme is "rizz." Rizz is the word of 2023, according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

 

Rizz is short for "charisma," and it simply means an ability to charm and woo a person. Rizz, to borrow from slang of generations past, is game. It started off as teen slang, and now it's in the dictionary.

<Notice> The opposite of rizz is "cringe." If you're going to attempt it, though, note the usage: A person has (or doesn't have) rizz, but one is (or is not) cringe.

 

For assignment takers, please reply to the below question to TME or GE before the meeting.

Q1: Share your Rizz with us!

 

Meeting Time: 19:10~21:10 (expected approach time 18:50)

親愛的火花們及火花朋友,

 

2024年的第一場火花會議將在1/11舉辦,希望這是充滿魅力的一年!

請有擔任會議角色的成員,在開會前將您分享給總主持人或總講評員。

Q1: 你覺得自己的風格或魅力是什麼呢?
