We can’t win, can we.
Of course.

Hey, Shawn, hey…Shawn…
I took your advice. It was a very good advice. Shawn, Shawn.
You can consider that you think you know me, but I don’t know who you are. My name is Katin Carter Stevens.
You can’t forgive me, huh?
Oh, no, no, no, no, no…
Talk to me, Shawn.
I don’t know who Shawn is, and I don’t know who you are.
Welcome back, captain Stevens.
Where am I?
You are inside of the Source Code.
What is Source Code?
It’s a computer program, Captain.
Source Code enables you to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life.
At 7:48 this morning, a bomb exploded in a train outside of Chicago, killing everyone on board.
The man named Shawn Fentris was on that train. He is now you.
Think hard and remember back who bombed the train.
I don’t know who bombed the train.
Then, try again.
Wait. No, I….
So, what do you think?
It’s the same train but it’s different.
We’ve been informed there will be another attack in six hours.
If you find the bomber and the next attack could be prevented.
Concentrate on the passengers in your car; look for ones who seem nervous as always. You have 8 minutes.
8 Minutes and that will be blown up again.
What would you do if you knew you had less than 8 minutes to live?
I’d make those seconds count.
I want go back in. I wanna save her.
You can’t, it doesn’t work that way.
Christine and I were dead.
It doesn’t have to be.
You can not involve this to reality while inside the Source Code.
I am asking you to have the decency to let me try.
What’s going on?
He’s in trouble.
Tell me everything’s gonna be ok.
Everything is gonna be ok!

Restless tells the story of two young-ins who fall in love, but at the same time are sorta weird. Oh, it’s directed by Gus Van Sant. That makes sense.

A terminally ill teenage girl falls in love with a boy who likes to go to funerals (been there, girlfriend). The two have some strange experiences on their journey together (sexperiences?) including their encounters with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII. (also been there, hey! Is this about me? Am I a teenaged girl on death’s doorstep?)

Here is the movie trailer,let’s watch it.

剧情:
电影讲述米娅·华希科沃斯卡饰演的身患绝症的16岁女孩,遇上了一个比她更古怪的、喜欢参加别人葬礼的男孩(亨瑞·霍珀 饰)—他还有一个想象中的朋友、二战时候的日本神风特攻队的飞行员。两个被周遭抛弃的局外人就这样陷入了爱情。

I met a boy.
Really?
Yeah, I met him at Christ’s memorial.

I know you?
Does anybody here know you?

He’s kind of different.
Different to be good.

This is the 4th funeral I ‘ve seen you this month, and if I see you around here again, I’ll call the cops and tell them all of you…

Marcus?
This is my boyfiend, Marcus.
Nice to meet you, Marcus.
Pleasures are yours, I’m sure.

Thanks for bailing me out of there. I’m Enoch.
I’m Annabel.
Did you know that kid from the other funeral?
Oh, yeah, I volunteer at the hospital.

Do you know one of these kids?
No, Moorosi and I just like to see it.
Who’s Moorosi?
He’s a… ghost.
He’s a ghost.
Can I meet him?

Why she dressed like a boy?
He says he thinks you look really nice.
No, I didn’t.
Thank you, Moorosi.

Annabel told me you’re a funeral crushing dropout, with a ghost friend?
Sounds not so good when you say them all together like that.

So do you wanna talk about Enoch?
It’s geting pretty complicated.

I was lying about working in the hospital. I’m a patient. Is that OK?

Make her better.
I don’t think you understand…
Make her better.

I think of things going a certain way, and they don’t.

You think he has nothing? He has everything.

How is this going to go?
I don’t know.
That’s a part where you say it can go really well.

There’s a kind of songbird, that thinks it dies every time the sun goes down. In the morning when it wakes up, totally shocked to still be alive, it sings this really

beautiful song.

I sing every morning since I met you.

Social media key to small businesses 社交网络成为中小企业的福音

It doesn’t get more local than this, a 30-minute photo shop in Irvine, California. Same store front since 1990. But this is an international enterprise now.

When I started, customer base was about 3 to 5 miles. Today it’s worldwide. People find us online through searches, through search engine, through twitter searches as well as Facebook.

Mitch Goldstone has tweeted some 32,000 messages. He has 10,600 followers on twitter where he broadcasts his promotions and he’s constantly trying to make a name for his company, Scan My Photos. He doesn’t just self-promote. He shares links and product reviews and blends into a running conversation online about “All Things Photo”.

If you are not into social media, social networking, you will be out of business. I am gonna repeat that you will be out of business if you don’t tweet, use Facebook and social media today.

Smart small business owners are embracing and profiting from this free tool. Just as Ido Leffler, co-founder of beauty brand, YES TO.

Today you don’t need to spend any money at all to set up a Facebook fan page. You don’t need a huge marketing fund to set up a twitter account. You need zero.

When an expensive print ad campaign fell flat, Leffler launched an online contest to find the face of the brand. It attracted 150,000 fans on Facebook. Sales doubled in 6 months. The social media, social butterflies learned to use these free tools to grow their business. But it’s not easy. Experts say the trick is figuring out how to turn posts and tweets into dollars and cents.

It’s great if you have, you know, 10,000 followers on twitter, but how many of them are paying customers. That’s where the strategic piece, a lot of small businesses overlook and the smart ones really focus on.

Smart Travels 香港行 (5-6)

There are different kinds of natural forces and energies in our environment. We call these natural forces or energies the chi.

Most Hong Kong Chinese believe in aligning walls, furniture, and objects to create a natural flow of energy through their houses. I was curious about Chinese Medicine, so I signed up for a workshop with an herbalist.

In Chinese medicine, everything is considered to have the characteristics of either yin or yang. For example, herbs that are of cold and cool nature are regarded as yin medicines. And herbs that are of hot in nature are regarded as yang medicines.

According to this tradition, human organs and tissues also have attributes of yin and yang. When these forces are out of balance, a person will develop symptoms of disease. Certain herbs are thought to restore harmony.

A legacy of shipping and trade have made Hong Kong the city it is today. An interesting place to learn about South China’s seafaring past is the Maritime Museum in Stanley. Hong Kong’s deep and protected harbor has beckoned vessels since ancient times. But in the 20th century, the shipping industry mushroomed. In 1900, an estimated 11,000 ships docked here. Within 10 years, that number had doubled. Hong Kong continues to impress the business world with its import export prowess.

The single most fascinating thing is probably a present-day statistic that Hong Kong’s little Kwai Tsing container port, about a kilometer by a kilometer and a half, has the annual throughput capacity of every single container port of the west coast of the USA put together.
Wow.

No question, this maritime muscle is not to be trifled with.

Yes, it’s hard for folk to know how big, a really big ship is, and to show them. We took Hong Kong’s tallest building, 420 meters, 86 stories, and stood the world’s largest ship on its stern right next door to it. Big ships are very, very big.

All of the commerce rolling through this port creates plenty of demand for high-end hotels. While Hong Kong is generally inexpensive, hotel costs are on par with major American and European cities. The hottest new place to stay is the Landmark Mandarin Oriental with a great location right in the middle of the central shopping district. The state-of-the-art rooms have sophisticated electronics as well as marble baths. And the oriental spa offers the ultimate in relaxation.

Visitors who anticipate nothing but shopping and crowds are often surprised at Hong Kong’s abundance of open space and natural beauty. If you’re willing to explore beyond the high-rise jungle of downtown, you’ll discover that much of the region is made up of rural countryside and unspoiled coastline.

There are plenty of easy day trips. We are checking out Sai Kung, an enormous country park popular with locals, as well as the culturally rich island of Lantau. Before 1970 Sai Kung Park was a remote area that could only be reached by foot or on ferry. Then development of a huge new reservoir brought in several roads and opened up easy recreation for Hong Kong’s workaholic residents. Relatively unknown by tourists, the park can be reached by a 20-minute taxi ride or by local bus.

Located near the edge of the park, the town of Sai Kung is a busy marketplace and convenient gathering spot for fishermen and local villagers. You can easily hire a sampan boat and take a relaxing ride through the serene waterways. Looking at these little islands, it’s easy to imagine how Hong Kong Island itself must have looked before the British took control in 1842. For thousands of years, this was a quite, remote corner of China, occupied by small settlements of fishermen and farmers, and the occasional band of pirates.

How the Earth Changed History Water World 神奇水世界(3-4)

Out there is a river valley that’s been carved into the rock. It’s been carved by running water, just flew down here smoothly off this rock bed and then cascaded down to the valley north there. Six thousand years ago, that was a big river.

Satellite images reveal that the river bed I’m standing in is just one of a network of past river valleys that crisscrossed the Sahara desert. Ten thousand years ago, this dry, empty place was entirely different. Little is known about the early Saharans who lived here then, but we do know that they depended entirely on water. Water formed the lakes in which they swam. Water nourished the plants which fed the animals they hunted. Water filled the clay pots from which they drank, but then the climate changed.

About five and a half thousand years ago, the Sahara began to dry. The rains failed, the river shrank and the lakes dried out. For the early Saharan people, there was only one option – to follow the rains and abandon the desert.

The fortunes of the early Saharan people revealed a universal timeless truth: our fate is inextricably linked to water. The problem is the water never stands still. It’s always on the move across the planet. We think of this as a blue planet, but while water is abundant, most of it is no use. More than ninety-seven percent of the earth’s water is salty ocean which we can’t drink or use to grow crops. Less than three percent is fresh water on which all human life hangs. What’s more, that tiny fraction is often hard to depend on, because fresh water has a life cycle all of its own.

The water seems so familiar, doesn’t it? But to see its remarkable qualities, you have to go to some extreme length.

The fresh water that we depend on begins its life in the oceans. As the sun’s rays beat down on the surface of the sea, they heat the water molecules until some evaporate. It’s the start of an extraordinary journey.

Here as water evaporates, it feels like it vanishes into thin air there. Although we barely notice it, water molecules are suspended around us all the time, just that we are only aware of it when they clump together as clouds.

a journey one time, less than a thousandth of the world’s water is up here in the atmosphere. It may not seem much, but this is what spreads water from the seas to the land.

The water molecule doesn’t hang around up here for very long. It fact, it spends less time up there in the atmosphere than the any other time of its journey, a mere nine days until a typical water molecule crashes the earth as rain.

For most of us, rain is perhaps the most familiar stage of the water cycle, but notoriously the least reliable.

As the water falls as rain, it joins a big system, cascading and carving its way across the land surface as streams and rivers. Look at that, water, absolutely everywhere.

Rivers and rain are of the parts of the water cycle that we depend on and yet they are only a tiny proportion of the world’s fresh water, amazingly two percent of all fresh water on the planet, the rest of the earth fresh water is locked away, down there on the ground.

What a landing.

The vast majority of it is stored as ice. Most of the rest seeps deep into the earth where it’s known as groundwater. Hidden away down here is the planet’s second large store of fresh water, but in the end, all water arrives back in the oceans and the cycle begins again.

Smart Travels 香港行 (3-4)

You know you are going to live a very long life? Do you know that?
No, I didn’t know that.
You see? This career line is very long. You see?
So I’m going to work for decades more?
Yes.
Is that good news? I’m not sure.
Oh, because, ok, you’re active person.
Yes.
You don’t want to sit lazy at home.
No, no, no.
You see, you see the red color? The red color that means too much of heat inside your body.

So no coffee, not a lot of salt, more exercise, what a surprise, and the thing is to look OK.
Certainly.
Thank you, Jane. Thank you very much.
You’re welcome.

Hong Kong’s efficient transportation system includes trams and buses, an excellent subway system, and reasonably-priced taxis. But my favorite transportation bargain is the Star Ferry. These green and white ferries have linked Hong Kong Island with the Kowloon Peninsula for the past 100 years. The journey takes about ten minutes and tickets cost only about a quarter. And with these views, it’s obvious why the ferry is one of the city’s most popular attractions.

When you’re in Hong Kong, you might as well do as the locals do. When they’re not working, they’re shopping, seriously. For many, Hong Kong is synonymous with shopping, and for good reason. The city is a prime distribution center for much of the world’s products. In fact, it’s difficult to find anyplace here where you can’t shop.

Thousands of malls, department stores and designer boutiques offer every imaginable name brand luxury, as well as factory seconds and designer knockoffs. In stark contrast are the many traditional open-air markets, nestled in among the towering skyscrapers. Here, dedicated shoppers hone their bargaining skills.

Shopping in Hong Kong extends far beyond buying life’s necessities. It’s a recreational and social activity. So unless you are a committed non-shopper, best to leave a little extra packing room in the suitcase.

So, apart from shopping, what’s Hong Kong’s most popular pastime? Well, I’d put my money on horseracing. Here, betting on the ponies isn’t just a sport. It’s a passion.

Millions of people follow these events and the average betting turnover per race is the highest in the world. The first race was held here at the Happy Valley track more than 150 years ago. And the track even remained open during the Japanese occupation of the city in the 1940s. Until recently, horseracing was the only legal form of gambling in Hong Kong. And with an annual turnover equivalent to more than a billion US dollars, the Sport of Kings definitely reigns.

The Hong Kong Tourist Board’s “Cultural Kaleidoscope” program makes it really easy to get a crash course in Chinese culture. Everyday you can take a different workshop on important traditions that will help you more fully appreciate your visit here.

And best of all, the classes are free. For example, one day, you can learn how to do Tai Chi.

(Next pattern, turning and looking at the moon. About 45 degrees to your left and right side. Let your palms face each other.)

Another day you can take a class in the ancient design method of feng shui.

(Good morning, everybody, and welcome to Hong Kong, and welcome to our feng shui class this morning.)

Literally translated as wind water, feng shui describes how homes and workspaces can be designed to achieve harmony with the spirits of nature.

宇宙的形成1:卫星 Alien Moons

本节目将带我们一起探寻宇宙是如何诞生的,又是如何从一个小点扩张到现在的浩瀚无际。首先我们认识卫星,卫星是指在围绕一颗行星轨道并按闭合轨道做周期性运行的天然天体或人造天体,月球就是最明显的天然卫星的例子。在太阳系里,除水星和金星外,其他行星都有天然卫星。太阳系已知的天然卫星总数(包括构成行星环的较大的碎块)至少有160颗。天然卫星是指环绕行星运转的星球,而行星又环绕着恒星运转。天然卫星的大小不一,彼此差别很大。其中一些直径只有几千米大,还有几个在太空运行的卫星却比水星还大。
This Is The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Creation Of Everything Us. The Programme Investigates How The Universe Came Into Existence Out Of Nothing, And How It Grew From A Miniscule Point, Smaller Than An Atomic Particle, To The Vast Cosmos We See Today.

In the universe ,everything seems to orbit something, planets orbit stars and moons orbit planets. Some moons are volcanic, but the volcanos are ice; others are awash with great oceans. There may be more habitable moons in our galaxy, than there are habitable planets. Moons tell the unknown stories of our solar system and show us how it all works.

In our own solar system, there are just 8 planets. But orbiting 6 of those planets are moons, lots and lots of moons, more than 300 of them, each one is different, each one a world on its own. While we look at our own solar system, we see a lot of planets, but even more than planets, we see moons. And in many ways, they are more interesting than the planets they go around. We have moons that are airless and apparently dead like ours, but others in our solar system, we have moons with oceans inside them and moon with atmosphere surround them. And I’m for moon and you can keep the planets.

The biggest eruptions, the coldest temperatures and the largest oceans in the solar system,they are all on moons. There are moons with ice volcanos. There are moons with lakes of methane, and metane rainfall, smog, clouds. Moons that are so volcanically active that they keep remaking their surface. Moons with all kinds of plume shooting off into the space. Really, a much wider range of environments than we ever could have imagined.
