is the most optimistic color, yet surprisingly, people lose their tempers most
often in yellow rooms and babies cry more in them. The reason may be that
yellow is the hardest color on the eye. On the other hand, it speeds metabolism
and enhances concentration; think of yellow legal pads and post-it notes.
2. Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism. [Read-aloud]

(has a diagram which 4 parameters)
This lecture talks about dimensions.
how many points (or parameters) that required describing a position.
If describe a
position on equator, then just need one parameter, that is longitude.
If describe a
position on the earth, then need two numbers: Longitudes, latitude
If describe a
position over the earth, then need three numbers: Longitudes, latitude, and
describing a position in the space, then takes the time into account, this is
the 4th parameter.
police in NSW
Armed police have been brought into NSW schools to
reduce crime rates and educate students.
The 40 School Liaison Police (SLP) officers have been allocated to public andprivate high schools across the state.
Among theirduties, the SLPs will conduct crime prevention workshops, talking to students about issues includingshoplifting, offensive behaviour, graffiti and drugs and alcohol. They can alsoadvise school principals.
One SLP, Constable Ben Purvis, began work in the inner Sydney region last week,
Alexandria Park Community School's senior campus. Previouslystationed as a crime prevention officer at The Rocks, he now has 27 schoolsunder his jurisdiction in areas including The Rocks, Redfern and Kings Cross.
ConstablePurvis said the full-time position would see him working on the broader issues
of crime prevention. "I am not a security guard," he said. "I am
not there to patrol the school.
"It is a good thing and an innovative idea andthere could be some positivebenefits," Council of Catholic School Parents executive officerDanielle Cronin said. "Different communities will respond to this kind ofpresence in different ways.
2. Aging World
We live in an ageing world. While this has been recognized for
some time in developed countries, it is only recently that this phenomenon has
been fully acknowledged. Global communication is
"shrinking" the world, and global ageing is "maturing" it.
The increasing presence of older persons in the world is making people of all
ages more aware that we live in a diverse and multigenerational society. It is no longer possible to ignore ageing,
regardless of whether one views it positively or negatively.
Demographers note that if
current trends in ageing continue as predicted, a demographic revolution,
wherein the proportions of the young and the old will undergo a historic
crossover, will be felt in just three generations. This portrait of change in
the world's population parallels the magnitude of the industrial revolution
traditionally considered the most significant social and economic breakthrough
in the history of humankind since the Neolithic period. It marked the beginning
of a sustained movement towards modern economic growth in much the same way
that globalization is today marking an unprecedented and sustained movement
toward a "global culture". The demographic revolution, it is
envisaged, will be at least as powerful.
future effects are not known, a likely scenario is one where both the
challenges as well as the opportunities will emerge from a vessel into which
exploration and research, dialogue and debate are poured. Challenges arise as
social and economic structures try to adjust to the simultaneous phenomenon of
diminishing young cohorts with rising older ones, and opportunities present
themselves in the sheer number of older individuals and the vast resources
societies stand to gain from their contribution.
This ageing of
the population permeates all social, economic and cultural spheres.
Revolutionary change calls for new, revolutionary thinking, which can position
policy formulation and implementation on sounder footing. In our ageing world,
new thinking requires that we view ageing as a lifelong and older persons.
有一题印象特别深刻，18XX年中国留学生学英语的，全篇不考单词，只考时态，每个空下拉单词只有时态的不同，did/to do/doing/done 这样的类型。 一共5个空…..但是感觉这题是最简单的，大概是初中完型水平。。。。
14. Sound receptor 声音如何传到大脑
The lecture talks about the
mechanism behind the sound receptor in our ears.
The speaker mentioned about how
beautiful it is and it appears to be the spiky and flappy thing in the ear; it
can translate vibrational energy coming from the ear drum into physical motion
throughout the fluid, and then further into electrical signal.
speaker in the end invites MIT students to learn more about it as they think it
as a remarkable device.
讲人体中的Vitamin D, 如果生活环境里有充足的阳光是不需要补充的。比如：在tropical
area 生活的人就不需要补充，因为皮肤经常和阳光接触。但是在cold area生活的人就需要通过食物来补充 Vitamin D
Vitamin D refers to a group of
fat-soluble secosteroid responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of
calcium, iron and magnesium. D3 and D2 can be ingested from the diet and
supplements. Dermal synthesis of vitamin D from D3 is depending on sun
exposure. Vitamin D may be considered as a hormone. People live in tropical
area don’t need vitamin D supplement because of enough sunshine while in winter
people wear more clothes need to eat food to get vitamin D.
