Gillian Chung (born 21 January 1981) is a Hong Kong singer and actress. She is a member of Cantopop group Twins, along with Charlene Choi. In 2000, Chung was contacted by one of the model agencies she worked part-time with when she was in Hong Kong. She was offered a job opportunity by Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG), which she accepted in that year. She became a contracted artist and underwent training before making her debut. She was advised by her manager Mani Fok (霍汶希) to adopt the "Chung Yan-tung" as her stage name, after consulting fortune tellers. The name was supposed to enhance her business skills. On May 18, 2001, the management company assigned her to form a singing duo, Twins, with Charlene Choi. Chung and Choi released their first album three months later. Chung made her solo-acting film début in U Man (2002), and has since proven her acting skills in a number of films such as Beyond Our Ken (2004), which earned her critical acclaim as well as a nomination for Best Actress in the Gam Zhi Ging Awards. In Beyond Our Ken, Chung played Chan Wai-ching, a spurned girlfriend of the eponymous Ken. The film had its world premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival and grossed HK$3,886,355 at the box office. In January 2006, the film 49 Days that Chung starred in had exceeded the HK$10 million (US$1.28 million) mark, earning a spot in one of Hong Kong's best box office films for that year. On September 13, 2009, Chung showcased an emotional performance art video at the Harbin Ice Snow World carnival singing competition. The silent video, previously filmed in Hong Kong, was shown at the fair lasting 8 minutes and 43 seconds. The video showed Chung switching from laughing to crying. This attraction drew hundreds of visitors each day. Many audiences thought that Chung used the art expression to reveal her apologetic attitude. However the video was only meant to show how attitudes are expressed through art, according to artist and video creator Jiang Zhi. On 27 March 2010, Chung released her début solo EP, which was sold as part of the package of Twins' fourth compilation album Everyone Bounce (人人彈起). The EP includes six songs, including début solo single More Hearts (心多) that was released a year prior to the album release.…...

Nguyên lý mối liên hệ phổ biến a. Nội dung nguyên lý về mối liên hệ phổ biến Đối lập với quan điểm biện chứng, quan điểm siêu hình coi sự tồn tại của các sự vật và hiện tượng trong thế giới là những cái tách rời nhau, giữa chúng không có sự liên hệ tác động qua lại, không có sự chuyển hóa lẫn nhau và nếu có chỉ là sự liên hệ mang tính chất ngẫu nhiên, gián tiếp. Ngược lại, phép biện chứng duy vật cho rằng, sự tồn tại của các sự vật, hiện tượng của thế giới không phải là sự tồn tại tách rời và cô lập lẫn nhau, mà chúng là một thể thống nhất. Trong thể thống nhất đó những mối liên hệ, tác động qua lại lẫn nhau, ràng buộc và phụ thuộc, qui định lẫn nhau, chuyển hoá cho nhau. Ví dụ: tự nhiên theo nghĩa rộng, là toàn bộ thế giới vật chất tồn tại khách quan. Xã hội chỉ là một bộ phận đặc thù của giới tự nhiên. Sự xuất hiện, tồn tại, vận động và phát triển của xã hội một mặt, phụ thuộc vào các qui luật tự nhiên, nhưng mặt khác còn phụ thuộc vào những qui luật xã hội, trong đó con người là chủ thể của lịch sử xã hội. Do đó, xã hội không thể là cái gì khác, mà chính là một bộ phận đặc thù, được tách ra hợp qui luật của tự nhiên, là hình thức tổ chức vật chất cao nhất của vật chất trong quá trình tiến hoá liên tục, lâu dài của tự nhiên. Tính chất của mối liên hệ: tính khách quan, tính phổ biến và tính......

...I. Introduction The following report will evaluate Holly Farms operations and business strategies in order to improve its return on farm tour assets. Operations will be evaluated based on sales forecast and capacity constraints within the businesses. I will evaluate Gillian Giles strategy and propose possible solutions for capacity constraints and other potential operational issues. II. Background In 1993, Fred and Gillian Giles opened Holly Farms for agri-tourism to supplement declining profits from their traditional farming business. Holly Farms invested all of their savings in a 40 space car park and six space park for 40 seater coaches, a milking parlor, ice cream factory, and various touring attractions.

Sam Chung

...Sam Chung Sam Chung was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Chung taught at Northern Michigan University and is now teaching at Arizona State University in Tempe. Chung’s work has been included in such publications as Contemporary Ceramics, The Art of Contemporary American Pottery, The Complete Guide to High Fire Glazes, and Masters of Porcelain. Sam Chung has a unique view of what he likes for his pottery pieces; he is interested in the way that pots have the unique ability to serve a multitude of roles and functions. He likes to not just make ordinary symmetrical pieces, but something more with a curve and a part of clay here and there to where you don’t know what to do with it other than look at it and be amazed. He is interested in a pot’s ability to contain not only physical matter, but also elements of history, memory, familiarity, and suggestion. I for one really like how some of his work looks, I like the different unique style of work. He goes above what the average artist does. It looks like, by what I saw he did, that he likes to use mainly white with black line looks, but in later years he has done more with color in his work. I like the black and white more, just because it is a more neutral and I like those colors in art better than the reds or blues or greens etc. In recent work Sam Chung has used a cloud pattern on his work. This is used a lot in Korean work as well. For his schooling he got a Master of Fine Arts Degree (M.F.A.) in Ceramics. He also got a......

...“Việt Nam đang rất cần thị trường chứng khoán phái sinh” (Ông Bùi Nguyên Hoàn, Hiệp hội Kinh doanh Chứng khoán) “Sàn CBOT của Mỹ ra đời đã làm thay đổi căn bản bản chất thị trường kỳ hạn, vừa là công cụ bảo hộ giá, vừa là công cụ đầu cơ, phù hợp với mọi đối tượng đầu tư. Cơ chế hoạt động của CBOT trở thành quy tắc, chuẩn mực chung cho tất cả các thị trường phái sinh trên thế giới, kể cả các thị trường đã ra đời trước đó hàng trăm năm. Những thành công của CBOT có sức lan tỏa rất nhanh.   Đến cuối năm 2010, thế giới có trên 70 sở giao dịch hàng hóa, giao dịch mua bán thông qua hai loại công cụ: hợp đồng tương lai và hợp đồng quyền chọn. Sản phẩm giao dịch phổ biến là nông phẩm, năng lượng, hóa chất, kim loại, bao gồm cả vàng, bạch kim, kim cương, và các công cụ đầu tư tài chính.  Thị trường chứng khoán Việt Nam, đã qua hơn một thập kỷ hoạt động, chứng khoán niêm yết vẫn đang đơn điệu, chỉ là cổ phiếu phổ thông và một ít chứng chỉ quỹ đầu tư. Trái phiếu, cơ bản chưa có giao dịch thứ cấp trên thị trường tập trung. Hàng triệu người đầu tư Việt Nam đang đầu tư “chay”, chưa có công cụ bảo hiểm. Đầu cơ chỉ một chiều (giá lên), chưa có công cụ đầu cơ khi thị trường  xuống giá.   Hơn bất cứ quốc gia nào khác trong khu vực, Việt Nam đang rất cần có một thị trường chứng khoán phái sinh, một định chế tài chính bậc cao, để bảo hộ giá hàng hóa xuất nhập khẩu, bảo hiểm đầu tư tài chính và là công cụ đầu cơ trong mọi khuynh hướng biến động của thị trường.

...nhưng lại không cũ và giúp ích rất nhiều cho các tân cử nhân. Kỹ năng học tập trên lớp Nghe giảng: Để tập trung nghe giảng nắm được bài ngay trên lớp không phải là một việc đơn giản và dễ dàng. Hơn nữa, việc tập trung được hay không đôi khi còn phụ thuộc vào thầy giáo, bài giảng hay các nguyên nhân chủ quan khác. Chỉ có cách bạn phải luyện tập, tránh để bản thân bị phân tâm. Tốt nhất bạn nên chọn vị trí gần thầy cô, vừa có thể nghe rõ hơn, vừa có khả năng ít nói chuyện. Việc phát biểu hay đặc câu hỏi cho thầy cô giáo cũng là một cách khiến chúng ta tập trung hơn. Để phát biểu tốt thì hãy ghi những câu nhận xét hay phát biểu vào một tờ giấy trước khi phát biểu.  Ghi chép: Cần phải viết nhanh hơn, dùng nhiều ký tự viết tắt hơn. Không cần phải ghi tất cả những gì thầy cô nói. Hãy dành thời gian để nghe các thầy cô giải thích kĩ hơn về định nghĩa, khái niệm, cách chứng minh… Chỉ ghi chép những gì mà chúng ta chưa biết, những điều quan trọng mà sách không có. Ngoài ra, vở của người bạn học sẽ là tài liệu hữu ích vì có thể lúc đãng trí bạn bỏ sót một chi tiết quan trọng trong bài giảng. Kỹ năng học ở nhà Cần tìm một chỗ yên tĩnh, tránh tiếng ồn. Bạn nên chọn một thời gian học cố định và tạo cho mình thói quen học thời gian đó. Ngoài ra, cần có lịch học thật hợp lý, kết hợp giữa học tập và giải trí như có thể một bản nhạc nhẹ nhàng, hoặc một bài tập thể dục. Nếu bạn học phải phần khó hiểu thì để lại, học những phần khác dễ hiểu hơn, sau khi......

Contingency Plans

...forecasted to bring 2-3 feet of snow and damaging winds during the next 12-18 hours. Nurses on the floor are looking to Gillian Scott for direction on how to proceed if and when staff begin calling out and creating staffing shortages due to the weather situation. Gillian continues to monitor the weather closely and stays in close contact with her nursing supervisor. It is better for everyone, staff and patients included, that a plan be put in place sooner rather than later. Since this is second shift, most executives have gone home. The hospital has an Emergency Operation Plan (EOP) in place that Gillian reviews, paying special attention to the weather emergency section. Gillian knows that if the weather predictions are correct, they will have to keep the staff that is currently working until other workers can arrive at the hospital safely. With this in mind, the challenges she will be facing are tired co-workers as well as a floor that is short staffed. Gillian’s supervisor decides it is best to come into the hospital while roads are still passible. It will be easier to implement a plan while onsite as well as be able to help as needed. As the supervisor travels into the hospital, she notices that the roads are getting harder to pass and the snow predictions are proving to be correct. When she gets to the hospital, she calls a meeting with Gillian to discuss the EOP and what the next steps will be. When working in a hospital, emergency situations will arise,......

Chung Keng Quee and His Business Ventures

...Chung Keng Quee and his business ventures. Born into a family of peasants, and slowly raising to the top tin mine producers the world has ever seen, that’s the significance by which Chung Keng Quee has laid down in the history of Malaysia. Chung Keng Quee was involved in many different kinds of business, namely, the tin mine industry, the tobacco industry as well as many others which are yet to be mentioned. Beginning with the first and foremost business which he has exploited, Chung Keng Quee was indeed a tin man. He owns about 80 mines which were in operation in Larut, he also about owned by 40 firms, with an average of nearly 86 men per mine in the year 1879. Even the largest mine, the Kong Loon Kongsi in the country was under his leadership which has 300 coolies in that mine alone. Chung Keng Quee was indeed the richest miner in the history of Malaysia, he was also granted huge concession of land in Kinta so that he could work his mining upon- which was then making the world’s finest mines. According to the Ipoh Echo(2008), Chung Keng Quee owned the largest tin mine in the world, the Kwong Li Mine, which employs 5000 coolies. One of the very reasons of why Chung Keng Quee could be this successful in his mining industry is simply because of his experimentation of hydraulic pumps, he was the very first miner who uses this very pumps by which it has impressed people like Sir Hugh Low and Sir William Cleaver Robinson- the Governor of Straits Settlement during that......

Understanding the Effects of Sexual Trauma

...terms for sexual violence, the terminology utilized in this paper is sexual trauma. Some professionals working with victims of rape and sexual abuse have noted that due to certain circumstances surrounding the attack, some individuals do not view what has been done to them as sexual assault. It has also been indicated by professionals that victims can feel disgraced by the use of words such as rape and assault and that the term sexual trauma can help in the recovery process. (Yuan, N.P., Koss, M.P., & Stone, M., 2006). Psychological Effects While the assault is taking place, the immediate typical response is intense fear, shock, confusion and anxiety resulting in dissociation and withdrawal (Herman, 1992). According to James & Gillian (2013), this is what is called the impact stage and these symptoms can last up to two weeks. (p. 255). It is common for victims to have fears from the possibility of being exposed to a sexually transmitted disease or a pregnancy resulting from the attack (Holmes et al., 1996, and Resnick, (Acierno, & Kilpatrick, 1997, both cited in Astbury, 2006). It is also common for victims of sexual assault to have fears of being sexually assaulted again. Prior to the attack, if the victim perceived the world as being an inviolable place, then the experience of the assault would demolish this belief causing the victim to live in a state of fear of the world they live in. (Crome & McCabe, 1995).The focus of research concerning long term......

...Your research proposal should include the following sections: • Title • Short description of the research (approximately 100–200 words) This includes the general background of your proposed research, your research question, and its specific objectives. You should explain in broad terms the nature of the issues in which you are interested, with perhaps the reason for this interest. • Positioning of the research (approximately 1500–2000 words) This should reference the most important and most recent work related to the research (i.e., a brief review of relevant literature), demonstrate your understanding of the research issues, and identify existing gaps in the literature (both theoretical and practical) that your research is intended to address. You should provide a summary of the academic debate surrounding your research topic with some reference to the more important papers and books in this area. Of course, this is not expected to be comprehensive, but search engines readily enable the important contributors in any area to be identified. • Expected findings or contributions (approximately 300–400 words) This section should describe the expected findings logically deducted from the previous two sections.

Postal Rule-Contract Law

...acceptance should be communicated and received. This was done when he sent his offer through the mail and also when he instructed Gillian that acceptance MUST be in writing. However the postal rule was eliminated when he stipulates that the acceptance must get to him by 10 am the next morning, else he would sell the car to someone else. He has therefore implied that actual receipt of the acceptance within a certain time frame would make it legally binding. Gillian’s acceptance was posted and received by Mark at 9 am Friday morning as stipulated. Mark however, has posted a letter of revocation of the offer, which Gillian received 8 am on Friday the same day he received her acceptance. Advice to Gillian: Gillian wouldn’t received any damages from Mark for breach of contract as there was no contract, in the sense that it was revoked before acceptance was communicated to and received by the offeror , Mark. The fact that Mark had placed a condition on Gillian’s acceptance- ‘must get the acceptance to him by 10 am the Friday morning”- eliminates the postal rule which states that, acceptance takes effect the moment it is posted. Therefore actual receipt of the acceptance within the time frame makes the contract legally binding. Even though Mark had received Gillian’s acceptance within the ambit of time doesn’t mitigate the fact that he had sent Gillian a revocation of the offer by mail which she had received 8 am the same morning he received her acceptance. Even though the......

Paparazzi Limitations

...more rights. Even the government has set up laws to protect them from being abused. Similarly, human rights of the celebrities have been invaded seriously by the paparazzi, why can’t the government do the same thing to protect them? Secondly, restrictions to be put on the press will not only benefit the celebrities, but also the whole society – every one of us. If we don’t do something to stop this worsening problem or just keep our arms folded, the problem will once become ours. Since most people are interested in the private lives of the celebrities reported in the magazines, the press may think their actions are recognized and approved – this will probably encourage them to do more. Worse still, every one of us may become the next Gillian Chung as we may be photographed in the streets, the dressing rooms or even at home. So, if we still don’t restrict the freedom of the press, the problem may become too big to control. It may erode our social moral values, kill our privacy or even destroy the social order. However, some disagree with the above arguments, and they are strongly against with the restrictions to be put on the press. Celebrities are the idols of the teenagers. What they act, what they say may seem to be the freedom of their own, but actually they always have a great influence on their fans. Teenagers like to imitate the clothes their idols wear, the hairstyle their idols have and even their behavior, no matter good or bad. Therefore, some say that the press......

Case Analysis - Liebeck V. Mcdonald’s Restaurants Andpearson V. Chung

...Case Analysis Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants Pearson v. Chung Introduction Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurant, also referred to as the “McDonald coffee case”, was a well known case in the United States of America in 1994 because it was considered frivolous. The case involved a woman Stella Lieback, who spilled the hot coffee she purchased from McDonald onto her lap and sustained a series of third degree burns, and was awarded millions of dollars from her lawsuit against McDonalds. The coffee was not only hot, but it was scalding, capable of immediate damage to the skin, flesh and muscle (Letric Law, 2011). In addition to the above case, the Pearson v. Chung case, also known as the “pants lawsuit”, was also a well known case in America in 2005 (Lexis-Nexis, 2008). This is a case where an administrative law judge in the District of Columbia had taken a pair of pants to the cleaners for alteration and dry cleaning; and sued the cleaners for $67 million dollars for the loss of his pants. The case was considered frivolous and became a flashpoint in the debate in the United States over tort reform (Lexis-Nexis, 2008). The major focus of this paper will be to critically analyze these two cases on the stated facts, the issues, the applicable laws, and the decision of the judge and the jury. What are the facts? There are some facts associated with Liebeck v. McDonald’s case. The woman involved in this case was 79-year old Stella Liebeck of Albuquerque, New Mexico,...
