The World’s Longest Crossing Sea Bridge — The Hongkong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (II)

In this way, from design to completion, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge lasted for 14 years and was finally born. Not all vehicles can run the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge!

Due to the consideration of Hong Kong and Macao’s road capacity and prevention of smuggling, China has implemented a very strict quota system. According to an expert calculation of Shenzhen Vocational and Technical College: According to the current total investment of the bridge, assuming a static payback period of 50 years, the annual comprehensive cost rate (including interest, maintenance, operating costs, etc.) is 1.5%, and the annual minimum toll of the bridge is estimated to be at least 3.68 billion yuan. According to the average charge of 150 yuan per trip, the bridge needs to travel 67,000 trips per day. The Director of the Hong Kong Transport and Housing Bureau, Chen Fan, revealed that by 2030, the bridge will have a daily traffic of 29,000. This figure is well below 67,000, and it will take 12 years to reach this level. In this way, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge may take a long time to recovery, may need more than 100 years to recover costs in the next century.

To Educate the 3-year-old Children, is True or False?

In fact, parents who generally process early education will focus on developing their children in these aspects, but the results are often not satisfactory.

First of all, in terms of interpersonal skills, in the concept of parents, children will get better exposure to other peers as soon as possible. This is also an important reason why many parents choose early education institutions. The truth is correct. But children are not aware of these aspects. If they are imposed, they may be counterproductive. The character of a child is mostly determined by his original family. It is a difficult to let a child have a high level of communication skills. The world of children is very pure, playing is playing, they don’t consider other things. Let the child adapt to the crowd is not in a hurry. At this time, the effect of cultivating him in this aspect is negligible, and everyone does not have to pay for it.

Then in language learning, many parents choose to let their children learn bilingually in early education institutions. Although the three-year-old child has strong language learning ability, it is more about the role of the family environment, if the parents say English at all time, the English foundation of the child would be very good. The effect of instilling some systematic courses in the early education institution may not be ideal. Many parents are still immersed in the misunderstandings of early education. They have to admit that there are still many shortcomings in early education in China. But this isn’t mean a complete denial of early education. The correct and appropriate way of early education actually has good impact on children.

Early education should be more focused on the cultivation of concentration. It is not that children are poorly focused but because domestic parents always interrupt their children. For example, when a child is playing with a toy, Mom and Dad will demonstrate the gameplay or ask the baby from time to time, whether to drink water, whether to eat or something. On the one hand, parents will have a sense of participation, on the other hand, they are also scruples about the safety of children. In fact, when the child is curious about the outside world, he may play for a long time with a piece of brick. Children need such time to do what they want to do. As he grows up, this concentration of training will become more and more important. Parents only need to properly observe and obstruct the danger. Lack of security is also a common problem in infants. The child is sensitive inside. Parents jokingly “I don’t want you” have a bad influence on the child’s psychological state. With more patience and care, the child will feel full of security, which is of great significance to the cultivation of his personality such as self-confidence.

The growth of the child is slowly formed, not a one-time process. It is not a bad thing to pay attention to the education before the child is three years old, but it is also necessary to pay attention to creating a good family atmosphere. The family is the best early education institution for the child.

About Face Recognition, How Much Do You Know? (VI)

Difficulties

Face recognition is considered as one of the most difficult research topic in the fields of biometric features recognition and even artificial intelligence. The difficulties of face recognition mainly is because face is as the biological characteristic.

Similarity

All of our faces are similar, there is a little differences among the different body, even the appearance and structure of human face are both similar. This characteristic is advantage for locating with human faces, but is disadvantage for distinguish the human body with the face.

Mutability

The appearance of human faces is not the same, we can generate many expressions through the change of faces, and the visual pattern of the human faces is have a big different if we at different angles of view, and it is also affected by the light condition, covering and age.

Main application

Face recognition is mainly used for identification. Since video surveillance is rapidly spreading, many video surveillance applications urgently need a fast identification technology in a long-distance and user-incompatible state, in order to quickly confirm the identity of a person at a long distance and realize intelligent early warning. Face recognition technology is undoubtedly the best choice. Fast face detection technology can be used to find faces in real time from surveillance video images and compare them with face database in real time to achieve fast identification.

The Bright Future of Video Advertising(II)

How we plan video

There used to be a nice clear line between digital and traditional advertising. We would use digital channels like Facebook or YouTube to target specific audience groups with short-form content. It’s biddable, it’s affordable, and it’s open to all advertisers. Then we had TV for targeting mass audiences at scale. It’s an expensive option with minimal opportunity for specific targeting, outside of just trying to guess who’ll be watching a particular show. But that line is becoming more blurred. We are seeing a trend for digital channels becoming more like broadcast TV. People are consuming more long-form content online which has opened up new opportunities for advertisers.

Meanwhile, TV has already become a digital channel. Today 50% of the U.S. broadband households watch long-form online video on an internet-connected TV, Parks Associates research shows, meaning that we’re starting to see a shift towards addressable audiences.

Far from dying a death, TV advertising is becoming more accessible than ever. It’s entering the realm of channels that can provide access to granular audiences, broadening the range of business objectives it could one day achieve. As industry standards are improved, addressable TV will become a vital part of any media plan so ensure you’re on the front foot.

 

The future of video advertising is bright, the marketers should pay more attention to it and we look forward more progressing in the future advertising industry, hope we all can have a bright future!

What is the Brexit Agreement Including?

European leaders signed a British Brexit agreement on Sunday, which set out the conditions for the UK to leave the EU and tried to outline the future relationship between the two sides. The agreement is divided into two parts: a 585-page exit agreement, which is legally binding on both parties; and a 36-page non-binding principle statement that sets out the framework for future trade, economic and security relations. Both of these must be approved by the European and British Parliaments.

The legally binding document reads:

The UK will pay about $50 billion to fulfill its commitment to the EU budget. The UK will guarantee that approximately 3 million EU citizens living in the UK have broad legal rights and the EU will guarantee reciprocal rights to approximately 1.3 million British citizens residing in EU member states.

The agreement stipulates that the UK will have a 21-month transition period after leaving the European Union in March next year. The UK and the EU hope to negotiate future trade and security agreements during this period. From 2021, the UK will no longer be bound by the EU’s free-flowing rules, and EU citizens will not be able to work in the UK as they have in the past.

Irish border issue:

The core of the agreement is to find a workaround to avoid a re-emergence of hard borders between British territory Northern Ireland and the European Union member states of Ireland. If the UK and the EU cannot finalize the trade agreement by December 2020, the parties can extend the transition period to December 2022.

Another option is that the United Kingdom and the European Union will establish a joint customs area so that there is no need for border inspection between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This arrangement actually avoids the UK’s trade agreements with non-EU economies such as the US or China. The UK also needs to comply with a number of EU national aid, environmental, labor and social standards.

Only if the EU determines that the UK’s withdrawal from this tariff arrangement will not lead to the re-emergence between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the UK can withdraw from this tariff arrangement, which may require a new trade agreement between the two parties, or through technological innovation to achieve no border inspection.

Non-legally binding framework statement:

The two sides also reached an agreement on a 36-page future relationship framework statement that clarifies certain matters. The document calls for the establishment of broad economic ties between the two parties, but excludes the possibility that British manufacturing companies can enter the EU’s single market with zero barriers. The document also calls for the establishment of close and security partnerships between the two parties. However, from the establishment of a flexible economic and trade relationship that allows British companies to successfully sell products in the EU market, to sign a much looser FTA with limited tariff rates but limited market access, a series of possibilities that exist in the future trade relations between the two sides, this document is not clearly stated.

Whether these possibilities can be implemented will depend on whether the UK is willing to continue to comply with EU regulations and guidelines, which is strongly opposed by many Brexit supporters.

Knowledge and Suggestions about Sports(III)

The notes we should notice when we drink water during the excercise

During the exercise, we will lose a lot of water, so we will sweat a lot. At this time, we definitely want to drink water to supplement the water we lost. But drinking water during exercise is also a very important thing.

First of all, we should pay attention to the supplement of mineral water what rich in calcium and magnesium to supplement the body’s demand for mineral salts, because muscle exercise will increase the demand for mineral salts, and the evaporation of sweat will also take away some of the mineral salts in the body, so It is best to choose some functional drinks.

In addition, the correct method of hydration is a small number of times, it is best to drink warm water, even in the summer, do not drink ice water after exercise in order to pursue cool, otherwise it may cause irritation to the intestines, which may cause problems in the digestive system.

Before exercise, you need to add some water first. It is recommended to add 500ml of water one or two hours before strenuous exercise, and then perform activities such as running and playing. At the same time, when resting in the middle of exercise, you can properly add a small amount of water. If you sweat more, it is best to add water containing potassium and sodium to prevent discomfort. Finally, after the end of the exercise, you can’t think that it’s okay and you can drink water at will. At this time, we can’t add a lot of water at once. It should be a small mouth, slow drink, and the right amount. Drinking water can only solve the temporary thirst, but increase sweating, and further loss of electrolytes in the body, which also increases the burden on the heart and kidney. At this time, the hydration still needs a small amount of drinking, and appropriate salt.

Indoor sports or outdoor sports

Both indoor and outdoor sports are the sport we can choose. The gym is a typical indoor exercise. Most of these sports are constantly improved under the guidance of the coach, suitable for targeted training.

Running, hiking, skiing, etc. are typical outdoor sports. These sports are a wide range of generalized sports. While doing these exercises, we not only exercised our body, but also changed our mood in an outdoor environment, which is more conducive to our broadening of our mood.

Where’s Time Come From?(IV)

In terms of basic physics, is there any particularly new discovery about time?

We always expect colleagues who are doing experiments to improve the measurement of time. At some stage, the measurement will become good enough, and we will undoubtedly see some strange phenomena appear. There is also a prominent fundamental problem that although the laws of physics are symmetrical in most cases, under some situations, a set of processes must be related to weak interactions, at this time there will be a small number of obvious underlying crashes in the symmetry of time. This process seems to play an important role and is integrated into the vast universe of puzzles. We think that some things are still playing a role. Therefore, more experiments are needed in the field of particle physics, perhaps to solve the asymmetry problem of this time reversal.
