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.

The former leader of Hong Kong said he believes most people in the city are against such illegal acts.
“It is also important for the silent majority to speak up, so we have enough weight of public上海会所
opinion to stop these people from repeating these totally senseless and brutal activities,” Leung stressed.
上海会所品茶微信He also hoped the public could provide information to the police for identifying the offenders.
Hong Kong International Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports, which handles about 73 million travelers each year.
Stressing the airport’s importance to the city’s tourism, trading and logistics industry, Leun上海会所

against violence and obstruction at the airport, as their businesses could be heavily affected.上海会所品茶微信
Leung pointed out that radicals are not representatives of the majority in Hong Kong, as most people are peaceful and rational.

She appealed to the public to calm down, set aside differences on political issues and reject violence.

上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on
an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所

上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园

上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix
