  • Without sufficient preparation, you may get lost or delayed on your way to somewhere. Some of youmay prefer a romantic trip without any preparation and you are not bothered by getting lost. There are opportunities, like many doors, may close or disappear.It’s adventurous and romantic but it doesn’t mean there is no price for that kind of romance. It may also increase the risks and danger you have to face.The fact is for adventurous trips, people prepare and plan carefully.
  • http://johnglanvill.com/values-and-beliefs/A story about beliefsSocrates had gone for a walk outside the city walls of Athens. He was taking a rest, sitting on a mile post on the road about 5 miles from the city. As he rested he watched a traveller come along the road.“Greetings, friend! Can you tell me, is this the road to Athens?” Socrates assured him it was. “Carry straight on ahead. It’s quite a big city. You can’t miss it.”“Tell me,” said the traveller, “what are the people of Athens like?” “Well,” said Socrates, “tell me where you’re from, and what the people there are like, and I’ll tell you about the people of Athens.”“I’m from Argos . And I am proud and happy to tell you that the people of Argos are the friendliest, happiest, most generous people you could ever wish to meet.”“And I’m very happy to tell you, my friend,” said Socrates, “that the people of Athens are exactly the same.”A few moments passed and another traveller approached. “Greetings, friend! Can you tell me, is this the road to Athens?” Socrates assured him it was. “Carry straight on ahead. It’s quite a big city. You can’t miss it.”“Tell me,” said the traveller, “what are the people of Athens like?” “Well,” said Socrates, “tell me where you’re from, and what the people there are like, and I’ll tell you about the people of Athens.”“I’m from Argos. And I am sad and disappointed to tell you that the people of Argos are the meanest, most miserable and least friendly people you could ever wish to meet.”“And I’m very disappointed to tell you, my friend,” said Socrates, “that the people of Athens are exactly the same.”
  • “a psychological tendency that is expressed by evaluating a particular entity with some degree of favor or disfavor” (Eagly & Chaiken, 1993).an attitude is "a relatively enduring organization of beliefs, feelings, and behavioral tendencies towards socially significant objects, groups, events or symbols" (Hogg & Vaughan 2005)
  • Story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_Achieving_Your_Childhood_Dreams
  • “When I was teaching at the University of Virginia in 1993, a twenty-two-year-old artist-turned-computer-graphics-wiz named Tommy Burnett wanted a job on my research team. After we talk about his life and goals, he suddenly said, “Oh, and I have always had a childhood dream.”Anyone who uses “childhood” and “dream” in the same sentence usually gets my attention.Story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_Achieving_Your_Childhood_Dreams“Pausch was an assistant and associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Science from 1988 until 1997. While there, he completed sabbaticalsat Walt Disney Imagineering and Electronic Arts (EA). In 1997, Pausch became Associate Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction and Design, at Carnegie Mellon University. He was a co-founder in 1998, along with Don Marinelli, of CMU's Entertainment Technology Center (ETC), and he started the Building Virtual Worlds[5] course at CMU and taught it for 10 years. He consulted with Google on user interface design and also consulted with PARC, Imagineering, and Media Metrix.[4] Pausch is also the founder of the Alice software project.[6] He received the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award and was a Lilly Foundation Teaching Fellow.[7] Pausch was the author or co-author of five books and over 70 articles.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Pausch

  • Final year EE studentThe antenna more powerful than most base station antennas in use nowadaysmore economical choice Liu Xiangke was awarded the scholarship for his “Design of Small Antenna for Mobile Communication” in support of his M.S./Ph.Dprogramme in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He was among six students worldwide to receive this international scholarship.
  • Applying classroom lessons on e-commerce and market leveraging to the running of their e-business, three Year 2 Department of Information Systems students of City University of Hong Kong (CityU) clinched champion and runner-up titles in the 2008 eBay Young Entrepreneur Contest.Six School of Law (SLW) students at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) carved a reputation and gained invaluable experience in the 6th Annual Willem C. Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition by winning   the Honourable Mention for the Claimant’s Memorandum.The case study used as the debate topic involved an international sales dispute between an imported car dealer in a developing country and a multinational manufacturer of automotive products. The students were required to demonstrate their understanding of international commercial arbitration and showcase their debating skills. The competition required a team from the civil law school to debate a team from the common law school during each general round of written and moot court exercises.
  • A Year 3 Department of Marketing student of City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Joe Kwok Lai-yi, was named the Hong Kong Outstanding Youth Volunteer by the Social Welfare Department due to her excellent voluntary contribution to the community.“Joe was recommended and nominated for the award by Professor Zhou Nan, Head of the Department of Marketing, and Ms Chung Po-yi, Senior Counsellor of Student Development Services. … Joe had shown an outstanding ability in organising and promoting activities and generating team spirit.”
