Living the life of Bri上海千花网e a defining science

To spend time with stadium cosmologist Brian Cox is to make human beings reconsider their status – although tiny an

d fragile and finite in this infinite universe – as ecstatic and random rock stars of the galaxy上海千花网品茶微信

There was a remarkable moment when physics professor and TV personality Bri

an Cox was visiting the British Consulate in Hong Kong to deliver a prom上海千花网

otional speech to journalists there. Ten minutes ahead of his talk, the cosmologist who had spent half his life loo

上海千花网king for evidence of the origins of creation as far back as four billion years ago, looks u

p at the projection screen and says there was too much light shining on him that he couldn’t see.

Is there a blind that can be lowered, he asks? No. “Okay, I’ll do my best, but you’ll just have to come to the show to see these ima上海千花网品茶微信

ges,” he jokes, with his mix of wild-eyed, disciplined-mind, boy wonder-esque persona. Cox is referring to his “

stadium cosmology” performance, the Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour, wh上海千花网

ich landed in Hong Kong on June 5, and also visited Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.

上海千花网品茶微信In person, Cox burns like a comet, enlightening eyes and minds by the na

nosecond. He uses state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes and sp

ace probes in his show, with ultra-high-resolution LED technology helping explore the latest missions to planets, the na上海千花网

ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes, and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the unive

rse. He even “journeys” around and into a black hole. “On this new tour, I’m going a step further with technology,” he sa

上海千花网品茶微信ys. “And I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the universe.”

A former pop star of the 1980s and ’90s, Cox is today a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester.

He’s also an author, most recently of Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos (

with Jeff Forshaw), and a broadcaster, known for highly acclaimed BBC science p上海千花网品茶微信

rograms. Cox combines the best of David Attenborough, Carl Sagan and millen

nial thinking in his makeup. In an exclusive chat, we got to know the 51-year-old boy wonder of physics.

That may soon become a reality as a Guangzhou-based company has announced it is

上海夜网品茶微信cooperating with the local government to build a low-altitude aviation transportation network for AAVs.

Generally used to transport goods, “the network will shuttle passengers in a safe, fast, environmentally friendly, cost-efficien

t and intelligent way,” said Hu Huazhi, founder and chairman of technology company Ehang.上海夜网

The company, in cooperation with the Guangzhou government, will open the service to the public in 2021.

上海夜网品茶微信”We will launch pilot routes above the city roads this year,” Hu said. According to Hu, th

e company has finished the development of an application to allow passengers to pre-order the flying service.

“Passengers are allowed to pick up the drones at a designated上海夜网

station downtown, with charges being almost the same as taking a taxi,” Hu said.

上海夜网品茶微信He said the company is working with the local government to build more landing stations in the city in the following years.

Ehang, based in Guangzhou, has selected the city as its pilo

t city for the establishment of a low-altitude aviation transportation network.上海夜网

As part of the pilot program, Ehang will help the local government set up a command-and-control center to ensure that m

ultiple AAVs flying simultaneously can remain safe yet efficient. It will also help the city build the basic infrastru上海夜网品茶微信

cture to support urban air mobility, including by designing safety rules and market entry thresholds.

She called for the park 上海夜生活o be overturned and

 for the park to compensate her loss. The case was heard on April 23 and the verdict is pending.

Since being disclosed by a number of Chinese media over the weekend, the case 上海夜生活

has sparked heated discussions on social media about whether it is reasonable for the world’s second largest W

alt Disney park to deny visitors the right to bring their own food. Some argue that the food and beverages supplied wi

 上海夜生活品茶微信thin the park are overpriced, making the motivation behind the policy appear dubious.

In an online poll by local media shobserver.com, 40 percent of the respon

dents said they don’t mind such a policy as long as there is no price difference between the food sold in and o

utside of the park. The poll attracted more than 3,000 people in less than six hours. 上海夜生活品茶微信

Shanghai Disneyland has banned outside food, alcohol and nonalcoholic beverages over

600 milliliters inside its park since November 2017, more than a year after its opening.

This is not the first time Shanghai Disneyland got sued over the p 上海夜生活

olicy. In June 2018, a lawyer from Suzhou, Jiangsu province, tried to take the theme pa

rk to court by accusing it of violating consumer rights. But the court turned down his appeal. 上海夜生活

Wang, together with three of her classmates and a mentor, approached the case

 上海夜生活品茶微信as a “service contract dispute”, calling the ban an unfair term in standard-form

consumer contracts. She also cited a statement by the Supreme Court, which said the policy of no outside food

and beverages in the catering industry is a “bullying term”, according to thePaper.cn. 上海夜生活

In one of its recent school journals, Wang and her three classmates, who are all majoring in

international law, said it’s the nature of legal practitioners to find fault with the status quo. 上海夜生活

In 2014, a college student in Yantai, Shandong province, won a lawsu

it against a local cinema that prohibited him from bringing his own drink. 上海夜生活品茶微信

Globally, three out of the six Disneyland parks are open to food and drinks from beyond

its services, while the three in Asia – Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai – carry a no-outside-food-and-drink policy.

After a brief peaceful dem上海419ration, they left the

park to takee over Hennessy Road, a major thoroughfare in the heart of the shopping district in Causeway Bay, bloc

king traffic and disturbing tourists. In hit-and-run tactics, they also went to Wan Chai, taking similar actions.上海419品茶微信

Those protesters face the risk of arrest because they deviated from the planned rally’s location.

Under Hong Kong’s Public Order Ordinance, participating in an unlawful assembl

上海419y is punishable by five years’ imprisonment, and rioting carries a maximum penalty of 10 years.

Also on Sunday, demonstrators continued to occupy the Hong Kong International Airport arrivals hall for a third day.

In a separate development, the city’s major airline, Cathy Pacific, confirmed on Sat上海419品茶微信

urday that a Hong Kong pilot charged with rioting for taking part in a recent protest has been grounded.

上海419On Friday, the embattled airline received a warning from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the national aviat

ion regulator, over the possible safety risk the pilot posed and queries from passengers and the public.

The airline also confirmed that two of its employees had been dismissed for misconduct.上海419品茶微信

In Beijing, the Foreign Ministry urged the United Kingdom to stop interfering in China’s inte

rnal affairs and to refrain from making random, inflammatory accusations regarding Hong Kong.

上海419品茶微信The refutation came after the British Foreign Office said that new Foreign Secret

ary Dominic Raab spoke by telephone on Friday with Lam about the situation in Hong Kong.

“I’d like to point out that Hong Kong today is a special administrative

region of the People’s Republic of China. Long gone are the days when it was under B上海419品茶微信
