Andy Lau’s old lawsuit was awarded a million dollars, and China Star will apply for an appeal.

  


  Andy Lau’s scene of jumping out of a helicopter in Black Gold is stylish and powerful, but he didn’t expect to get into a lawsuit.


  


  Making a movie 11 years ago damaged the helicopter.


  After Andy Lau filmed Black Gold in Taiwan Province in 1997, he was accused of damaging the helicopter rented for filming. De ‘an Airlines, which rented the helicopter, went to court and sued Hua Zi, Yongsheng Entertainment Production Company (predecessor of China Star Group) and producer Wang Zhongzheng, demanding compensation of about 3 million Hong Kong dollars. The case was finally decided yesterday, and Hua Zi had to compensate about 1.3 million Hong Kong dollars for helicopter maintenance expenses. China.


  According to Hong Kong media reports, Andy Lau and China Star were sued by Taiwan Province’s De ‘an Airlines for damaging the rented helicopter, demanding compensation of NT$ 12 million (about HK$ 3 million). The case was opened in the Shilin District Court of Taiwan Province in March 2004, and the lawsuit lasted for four years. The helicopter involved in the incident crashed before Penghu. During this period, the representative lawyer of De ‘an Airlines asked to summon Hua Tsai to Taiwan Province to appear in court, but the judge thought that other evidence was sufficient, so Hua Tsai never appeared in court for this purpose.


  When the captain who was in charge of flying the helicopter testified in court, he said that he had told Hua Tsai not to touch the steering rod, but Hua Tsai still accidentally touched his ass during the filming, which led to the helicopter sinking and the rotor blades hit the curtain of the ground spotlight and were damaged.


  The judge thinks that it can be concluded from the captain’s testimony that it was Andy’s negligence that caused the damage to the helicopter, so he only ruled that Andy had to pay more than NT$ 5.1 million (about HK$ 1.3 million) for the maintenance of the helicopter. However, because the helicopter was rented from Dean Airlines by Yongsheng Entertainment Production Company and Wang Zhongzheng, the agent of Johnny Mak Production Company, they did not fulfill their custody responsibilities. If they are willing to pay compensation on behalf of Andy, it is acceptable.


  Miss Li, a spokeswoman for China Star, said on the phone: "The company is puzzled by this judgment. When shooting a scene that day, I hired a helicopter rental company to give guidance. I did everything on the helicopter and there is no reason to ask me to pay for it. This matter has nothing to do with the actors. I think the verdict is unreasonable and I will appeal. " Hua Tsai said through his assistant yesterday that he would not respond to the incident.


  In addition, the new play "See the Dragon in the Three Kingdoms" starring Hua Tsai has exceeded HK$ 10 million in the box office less than a week after its release in Hong Kong, while China Mainland, China Taiwan Province and South Korea all ranked among the top three in the box office in the first weekend after the painting was opened. Director Li Rengang specially gave a banquet to celebrate the success, and Hua Tsai, VanNess Wu and Tommy Tam all attended. Hua Zai said that he had suggested to the director that he should play a number of characters from the Three Kingdoms, first playing Zhao Zilong, then Liu Bei and Guan Gong, to see how many he could play.

Artificial intelligence or have one’s own will Hawking’s last book is full of worries about the future.

  Science and Technology Daily reporter Liu Xia

  On October 16th, the last book of the late famous physicist Stephen Hawking, A Brief Answer to Major Issues, was published, which involved his thinking on the biggest problems facing science and society, including "Will human beings survive on the earth all the time?" (Probably not) ""Is time travel possible? (still can’t rule out the possibility) ",etc.; There are also the final predictions on the most serious threats facing the earth, the "Superman" population, whether there is intelligent life in outer space and how to develop space colonies. These predictions are full of Hawking’s deep worries about the future of mankind.

  According to a report on the US Shi Ying Finance website on the 15th, Hawking said in his book that artificial intelligence may form its own will in the future — — The will that conflicts with us human beings; A "superman" population that uses genetic engineering to surpass its peers will dominate, which may destroy mankind.

  Human evolution has no boundaries.

  Shi Ying Finance website reported on the 16th that throughout the book, Hawking was pessimistic about the future of mankind on the earth. Political instability, climate change and the possibility of nuclear violence make the sustainability of human development on earth unsustainable.

  Hawking believes that the number one threat facing the earth is asteroid collision, similar to the collision that led to the extinction of dinosaurs. He wrote: "However, we can’t defend ourselves."

  The more immediate threat is climate change. "Rising ocean temperatures will melt the ice cap and release a lot of carbon dioxide. The double effect may cause our climate to be similar to Venus, and the temperature will reach 250 C. "

  Hawking believes that nuclear fusion power generation will give us clean energy, no pollution and no global warming.

  In the chapter "How do we shape the future", Hawking disagrees with the idea that human beings are at the peak of evolution. In his view, human evolution and efforts have no boundaries.

  He believes that human beings have two choices in the future: first, explore other alternative planets that can be inhabited by human beings. He advocates space colonization in more than one chapter, including colonizing the moon, Mars or interstellar planets; Secondly, actively use artificial intelligence to improve our world.

  Artificial intelligence will form its own will.

  Hawking also emphasized the importance of standardizing the management of artificial intelligence. He pointed out that "in the future, artificial intelligence may form its own will, which conflicts with our human will." The possible automatic arms race should be stopped. If there is a weapons crash like the flash crash in the stock market in 2010, the consequences will be unimaginable.

  He wrote in the book: "For human beings, the emergence of super-intelligent artificial intelligence is either a blessing or a curse, and the second must be one of them. The real danger of artificial intelligence lies not in malice, but in ability. Super intelligent artificial intelligence will eventually be extremely good at achieving goals. If these goals are not consistent with our goals, then we are in trouble. "

  He advocates that policy makers, the technology industry and the general public should seriously study the moral impact of artificial intelligence.

  The "Superman" population will dominate.

  According to the British "Sunday Times" reported on the 15th, Hawking’s biggest worry is that the rich will soon be able to edit their own and their children’s DNA to improve their memory and disease immunity.

  Shi Ying Finance website reported that Hawking believed that at some point in the next 1000 years, nuclear war or environmental disaster would "seriously destroy the earth". By then, "our talented race may have found a way to get rid of the shackles of the earth, so it can overcome the disaster." However, other species on earth may not be able to do it.

  These people who have successfully escaped from the earth are probably new "Superman". They use gene editing techniques such as CRISPR (commonly known as "gene scissors") to surpass others. Scientists can use such gene editing techniques to repair harmful genes and add other genes.

  Hawking also said that even if politicians try to ban this practice by law, these people will improve their memory, disease resistance and life expectancy regardless of the legal constraints prohibiting genetic engineering, which will pose a crisis to the rest of the world.

  In the selected section published in the Sunday Times on the 15th, Hawking said: "I am sure that people will find ways to modify their intelligence and talent within this century. Politicians may make laws prohibiting human genetic engineering, but there are certainly people who can’t resist improving human characteristics — — Such as memory, disease resistance and longevity. "

  He pointed out: "Once this kind of superman appears, those who fail to improve themselves through genetic modification will encounter major political problems. They are unable to compete, and may become dispensable or even extinct. However, in the future, there will be a self-designed human being who is accelerating and improving. If this human race can constantly try to redesign itself, it is likely to spread and colonize other planets and planets. "

  Hawking admits that there are various opinions about why intelligent life has not been discovered or intelligent life has not visited the earth. He is cautiously optimistic about this, but his preferred explanation is that human beings have "ignored" the form of intelligent life in outer space.

The chill is getting heavier! The temperature drops the most in beginning of winter. See where to enter the winter on the national winter map.

China Weather Network News "The north wind is cold and cold, and the sparse wood is half green and yellow." Today (November 8th), China entered the beginning of winter solar term. beginning of winter is the first solar term in winter, which means the beginning of cold winter. After beginning of winter, cold air activities became more frequent, and the winter process accelerated. China Weather Network launched the national winter map during beginning of winter all the year round to see where the cold wind is starting and winter is coming.

[National Winter Map] During the beginning of winter season, most of the north entered the winter.

At the beginning of the solar term in beginning of winter all the year round, many places in the north have entered winter, and the front of winter has reached the central part of North China, Qinling Mountains and western Sichuan Plateau. During the solar term in beginning of winter, the process of winter accelerated, and winter continued to cross south, and southern Hebei, southwestern Shaanxi, southern Shandong, most of Henan, northern Jiangsu and Anhui, and northwestern Hubei all entered the threshold of winter. Like Shijiazhuang (November 7), Xi ‘an (November 11), Jinan (November 10), Zhengzhou (November 13), Hefei (November 18), Nanjing (November 19) and other provincial capital cities, the average winter season is concentrated in beginning of winter season.

Most of the south is still in autumn at this time, and places like Hunan and Hubei are cool and full of autumn. In Hainan and the southern coastal areas of Guangdong, the summer heat still exists, and the summer is not over.

[Weather in beginning of winter] The temperature plummeted and the chill became heavier.

At the time of beginning of winter, everything was finally done. Beginning of winter is the first solar term in winter, which means that life begins to close and everything enters a state of recuperation and collection. Its climate has also changed from dry autumn to rainy and cold winter, with a sudden drop in temperature and a growing chill.

"One day in beginning of winter, water cooling is three points." Beginning of winter is the solar term with the fiercest cooling in the whole year, especially in the north. At this time, it has entered the cold season of "singing winter with the wind". China Weather Network took stock of the national temperature changes in the twenty-four solar terms, and found that the national average temperature began to decline since beginning of autumn, and beginning of winter had the largest decline, with the temperature in first frost dropping by 3.77℃ compared with the previous solar term.

The forms of precipitation after beginning of winter are more diverse, such as rain, snow, sleet and hail. The first snow often appears in North China, and it is already a scene of heavy snow in Northeast and Northwest China.

During the cold air intermission, the temperature difference between day and night in North China, Huanghuai and other places is large, and the humidity increases, which is prone to fog and haze weather, especially the visibility is low in the morning and evening, which will have a great impact on people’s life and travel.

Beginning of winter is not equal to winter. After beginning of winter, the cold air is stronger and the activities are more frequent. The front of winter begins to cross the Qinling Huaihe River, and most of the north has entered winter, while most of the south is still in autumn.

[beginning of winter Phenology] Water begins to freeze when it is frozen.

Beginning of winter is divided into three stages: the first stage is when the water begins to freeze, the second stage is when the ground begins to freeze, and the third stage is when the pheasant enters the flood. It is said that this solar term, water can already form ice; The land also began to freeze; After beginning of winter, big birds such as pheasants are rare, but giant clams with similar lines and colors can be seen on the seashore.

"beginning of winter is sunny and has a good harvest." In beginning of winter season, the land in Northeast China is frozen, and agricultural and forestry crops enter the wintering period; Jiangnan and South China should make full use of fine weather to harvest, sun and air late rice.

[beginning of winter custom] It is necessary to make up for the winter and avoid making up for the cold.

As the saying goes, "beginning of winter fills the winter and fills the mouth." In order to resist the cold, there is a folk custom of "beginning of winter food tonic". In the north, jiaozi is eaten, while in the south, radish stewed mutton, ginger duck, crucian bean curd soup and other tonic dishes are usually eaten. However, winter tonic should be moderate, and blind "big tonic" should be avoided.

The weather is getting colder after beginning of winter, so friends should prepare down jackets, hats, scarves, gloves and other cold-proof equipment in advance, and add clothes in time to prevent colds.

When the north wind rises, everything hides, and beginning of winter is brushing away the restlessness of the season with the most peaceful attitude, so that everything can be calm. We might as well enjoy the warm sunshine in winter and feel the good time on earth quietly after our daily busyness.

1. Baseball is a very interesting sport, which significantly improves physical fitness, IQ and EQ.

Hello, everyone, I am a vast ocean science, and welcome netizens to watch today’s headlines. < Baseball is a very interesting sport, which significantly improves physical fitness, IQ, EQ and cooperation spirit > Netizens, knowledge is a vast ocean. People are like a small fish in the ocean, and it is impossible to swim to every corner of the vast ocean. There are still many mysterious and unknown things around us waiting for us to examine, think and explore, so that we can realize that the world is so wonderful and knowledgeable. Without further ado, let’s start studying together!

Hey! Children, let’s learn how to play baseball together!

Baseball is a tense and interesting sport. It originated in the United States, and now it has spread in more than 60 countries on five continents. At the end of 19th century, this kind of movement was introduced to China by the United States and Japan.

Although baseball is small, it is changeable and wonderful to play, and unexpected things often happen. Whether you participate in the competition or watch it, it will be fascinating.

At present, baseball is not very popular in our country, and children must be very strange to this sport, but please don’t worry, I will tell you something about baseball now.

The baseball field is a right-angled fan, which is divided into infield and outfield. The infield is square, and there are three corners with bases, which are called first base, second base and third base. The last corner is the top of the court called home plate. There is no bag at home plate, only a pentagonal board is placed, which is called home plate.

Home plate is the starting point and the end point of the offensive players. The attacking team members hit the pitcher’s ball at home plate in turn, and then ran to the next base. When the next player plays ball, he can also take the opportunity to run to the next base. If an offensive player can run the first, second and third bases at one time and finally return to home plate, he will get 1 point.

The defender should wear gloves for catching the ball with one hand and try to catch the ball that the batter can hit. If he can catch the ball, the batter will be robbed and killed. If you can’t catch the ball, you should pick it up quickly, and then immediately pass it to the place where you need it, so that your partner can pass and kill the attacker who hasn’t had time to Jin Lei. If a total of three players on the attacking side are killed out, then the two sides will exchange offensive and defensive positions. The two teams attack and defend once each, making it a game. Adults have to play nine games, and children can play five games. In the end, which team scores more points will win.

Let’s share it with you today. Friends are welcome to leave me messages, comments and forward them to interact with me. Let’s come to today’s headlines to learn science, solve the problems of this ever-changing and colorful world, face many mysterious and unknown things, and face those strange and various natural phenomena. Pay attention to me, the next episode will be more exciting!
