A short video on language development for the general public. [牙牙學語] 普遍來說，幼童6個月時，就會開始有牙牙學語的聲音，到了一歲，就會開始說有意思的單字或詞語。有家長會問：「如果我孩子到了一歲只會發出『咿咿呀呀』的聲音，甚至於還沒開口發聲，到底是什麼問題呢？是否代表他們完全還沒發展語言？其他幼童說的單字又是什麼呢？」我聽一聽言語治療臨床導師，楊浩怡姑娘的解說。
A short video on game and language development for the general public. [遊戲及語言發展] 為了贏在起跑線上，很多家長會帶幼童參加playgroup或興趣班，但其實是否必要呢，而且是否能取代幼童和家長之間的遊玩？遊戲究竟對幼童有多重要？(1:22) 市面上玩具五花八門，家長如何選擇？幼童在不同階段適合玩什麼玩具？(2:07) 隨著科技發達，一些家長會讓幼童使用平板電腦等電子產品學習語言和玩遊戲，是否妥當呢？(4:00) 大家一起聽聽專家的說法！ 如大家想詳細知道如何透過不同遊戲引導小孩和提供適當語言輸入，請留意下一集！
Air transport liberalisation has been marked by two major developments, i.e. the advent of the hub-and-spoke network and the emergence of Low Fare Airlines (LFAs). All major Full Service Network Carrier (FSNCs) have heavily relied on hub operations to effectively compete in the long-haul market against LFAs which until recently focused on point-to-point, short-haul services. Recent competiton dynamics, however, have led to the gradual blurring of the different airline business models. LFAs have now established strong bases in satellite/airports and/or in low-cost terminals of major airports. Moreover, they have introduced long-haul flights thus competing with FSNCs at a new level. The lecture will highlight all the above issues focusing on their strategic business and geopolitical implications for aiport hubs. It will also discuss how Hong Kong International Airport can build on its current advantages to play focal role in the new environment.

Tanmay Bakshi realized that in order to prevent suicide, we need a better way of detecting patterns. For the last 3 years, Tanmay and his team have been developing an app that can pick up on irregularities in a person's online behavior to build an early warning systems for at-risk teens. His hope is that this app will help get teens in distress the help they need, when they need it most.
When children are separated from their parents -- whether due to migration, custody changes, incarceration or any number of other factors -- how can families maintain connection? Computer scientist Lana Yarosh showcases why it's important to design technology that empowers people to share meaningful interactions beyond a video chat or phone call, granting them the chance to reconnect despite life's big disruptions.
Macinley Butson has won multiple awards for her inventions, including a device that improves protection from radiation during breast cancer treatment and a project enhancing the effectiveness of solar panels. In this talk, she shares how these forward-thinking endeavors were inspired by centuries-old technology, and how scientists need to shed their preconceptions about each other and their predecessors in order to do good work.
What if we looked at Parkinson's as an neurological electrical problem? Brain researcher Eleftheria Pissadaki and her team study dopamine neurons, the neurons that selectively die during Parkinson's. They discovered that the bigger a neuron is, the more vulnerable it becomes because it simply requires more energy. This new insight is reframing the disease -- and by "finding the fuse box for each neuron" and figuring out how much energy it needs, may help us neuroprotect our brain cells.
