The artists collaborate with the Department of Fine Arts, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Architecture, and the School of Biological Sciences to present phenomena that would have been invisible to the naked eye. Go and find out what they are! Its opening attracted a high spirited crowd. Here is a glimpse of the event: The appointment will commence on September 1, , initially on a three-year fixed-term basis, with the possibility of renewal and with consideration for tenure before the expiry of a second three-year fixed-term contract. The Department of Fine Arts has one of the best art history programs in Asia, with a particular focus on Western and Asian art, and with special strength in intercultural study. There are on average 35 undergraduate majors per year, plus a few M. All instruction is in English. The appointee should have a Ph. Teaching load is three or four courses per year, with excellent library resources and funding for research and travel.
Dried seafood around Sheung Wan on a hot, humid day You might know Sheung Wan as one of the hippest neighbourhoods in Hong Kong, what with speakeasies and private kitchens aplenty. Go ahead and take a closer look, if you dare. For every Hong Kong kid, this is one of the best smells from our childhoods. We dare you to resist trying one. Salty sea smell that sticks with you after spending a day at the beach or on a junk One of the best things about Hong Kong summers is spending the day on a junk — a Chinese boat — out on the water.
After a day at sea, though, you inevitably end up with a salty smell that pretty much just stays with you — until you manage to crawl into a shower.

The e-payment system in Hong Kong is dominated by the Octopus card. When it was introduced to Hong Kong 20 years ago, it showed the world how innovative Hong Kong could be compared with many other cities. The e-payment system here has not moved forward since Octopus was introduced and now countries around the world are feverishly developing e-payment systems for their citizens.
We should be looking beyond the Octopus card, trying to move forward and developing other methods of e-payment. We should be looking at and learning from the e-payment systems offered in countries. The methods by which you can make e-payments has become more diverse elsewhere, with innovations centred on mobile phones and scanners. It is not not just Asian neighbours such as South Korea which are using systems such as e-wallets but Scandinavia is at the forefront of streamlining payments for customers.
The concept of mobile money wallets works well because most people now have a phone and carry it everywhere. I suggest that Hong Kong can use this concept but also add a fingerprint identification system which would offer a unique level of convenience.
In this talk, we consider several examples in which sub-Nyquist sampling is possible without assuming any structure on the signal being sampled. This is possible due to the fact that we are not interested in direct recovery of the signal itself, but rather of some function of the signal. We begin by considering sampling a signal when we are interested in recovering its power spectrum and demonstrate applications to cognitive radio and super resolution microscopy.
Next, we develop the minimal sampling rates required to achieve minimal distortion when representing an arbitrary signal by quantized samples.
Risk is the possibility of losing something of value. Values (such as physical health, social status, emotional well-being, or financial wealth) can be gained or lost when taking risk resulting from a given action or inaction, foreseen or unforeseen (planned or not planned).Risk can also be defined as the intentional interaction with uncertainty.
Train size[ edit ] Some urban rail lines are built to a loading gauge as large as that of main-line railways ; others are built to smaller and have tunnels that restrict the size and sometimes the shape of the train compartments. One example is the London Underground which has acquired the informal term “tube train” due to its cylindrical cabin shape. There are lines that use light rail rolling stock , such as trams or streetcars , that are simply routed into a tunnel, onto a viaduct , or other type of grade-separated alignment—for all or part of their route as in Philadelphia —where the route is shared with full-size heavy-rail trains.
Platforms at stations on these routes are apt to be built to accommodate various train sizes and not be optimal for any one size, accounting for a sizable ” gap ” between the train and the platform. In many cities, such as Berlin and Boston , lines using different sizes and types of vehicles are organized into a single unified system. Although these are not often connected by track, in cases when it is necessary, rolling stock among different types of vehicles is compatible for non-revenue transfers or other purposes.
Most trains ride on steel wheels running on two steel rails, as in a conventional railway, although some use other methods. Power for the trains, referred to as traction power , is commonly supplied by means of a single live third rail as in New York. The current powering the trains is generally in the range of to volts , although some systems, such as the ones in London and Milan, use two live rails, one positive and one negative.
The archive collection ranges from an scenic documentary shot in Hong Kong by the American Edison company to local twentieth century productions. In July the archive’s collection was further enhanced when TV broadcaster ATV transferred over prints from its film library collection for storage, research and preservation with a further or so to be handed over once consent has been received from the film’s owners.
ATV was inaugurated in as “Rediffusion Television” and has acquired hundreds of Hong Kong films of different genres. The Archive has a Resource Centre on the third floor housing books, magazines, news clippings and audio-visual materials to facilitate research on the history of local cinema and most of the collection is open to the public and researchers for reference.

Origins until [ edit ] Willem Blaeu ‘s map of Utrecht Although there is some evidence of earlier inhabitation in the region of Utrecht, dating back to the Stone Age app. A series of such fortresses was built after the Roman emperor Claudius decided the empire should not expand north. To consolidate the border, the Limes Germanicus defense line was constructed  along the main branch of the river Rhine , which at that time flowed through a more northern bed compared to today what is now the Kromme Rijn.
These fortresses were designed to house a cohort of about Roman soldiers. Near the fort, settlements would grow housing artisans , traders and soldiers’ wives and children. In Roman times, the name of the Utrecht fortress was simply Traiectum , denoting its location at a possible Rhine crossing.
The mourners and the police have all gone home and the car park is empty. Pools of halogen light bathe the entrance to the trail, marked by a boom gate, in the southeast corner of the park. The only sound is the incessant buzz of nearby electrical transformers, amplified by the stillness of the night. There are tennis courts and a pitch-and-putt golf course close by, and stark white tower blocks across the road. You can even see a couple of night-owl residents inside.
But take just a few steps beyond the boom gate, down the trail that leads towards the murder scene, and the darkness swiftly closes around you.

The Hong Kong urban and suburban areas were long served by two railway operators: The original MTR Network Dating back to the s, the British HK government saw the need for an urban mass transit railway system to cope with the transportation needs of what is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The first three lines were completed between and , and the East Kowloon Line now Shatin-Central Link was shelved to direct capital for the immense new Airport project, which was completed in and includes the Airport Express and a new metro line, Tung Chung Line.
In , the world’s only dedicated metro line for Disneyland, the Disneyland Resort Line, was opened to the public together with the Disneyland theme park. HK MTR is famous for its cleanliness, ease of use, safety and reliability. By all underground stations had been equipped with platform screen doors. Route maps on trains are installed with LED lighting to indicate location of trains and transfer information.
