“Sounds louder than the fire bell,” Roberta remarked

“Sounds louder than the fire bell,” Roberta remarked, and they agreed that she was right and it would certainly wake everybody in the neighborhood if it went off at night.

After the guests had taken their departure51 the girl helped her mother and when the bell was finally installed, they went out to inspect the job. The alarm was set low on the

wall, the wiring ran back through the thick planks, which had been bored so they were not exposed, and could not be either ripped out or cut without difficulty.

“Keep them set all of the time,” the man explained, “and remember whenever you want to open the door to switch them off. I’m to put some more on the windows, so your plane will certainly be well protected and ought to be safe.”

Fear drove him to his feet, reeling. Holding his side to staunch the seep of blood from his wound, Varamyr lurched to the door and swept aside the ragged skin that covered it to face a

wall of white. Snow. No wonder it had grown so dark and smoky inside. The falling snow had buried the hut.

When Varamyr pushed at it, the snow crumbled and gave way, still soft and wet. Outside, the night was white as death; pale thin clouds danced attendance on a silver moon, while a

thousand stars watched coldly. He could see the humped shapes of other huts buried beneath drifts of snow, and beyond them the pale shadow of a weirwood armored in ice. To the south

and west the hills were a vast white wilderness where nothing moved except the blowing snow. “Thistle,” Varamyr called feebly, wondering how far she could have gone. “Thistle. Woman. Where are you?”

The stars in the mixed entertainment circle will not only

The stars in the mixed entertainment circle will not only be concerned by the public in their career,

but also their personal emotional life. A month ago,

the news that Cecilia Cheung gave birth to her third child secretly

in Hong Kong Hospital was very popular on the internet,

but the parties never came forward to clarify it. Later, I also took a

group photo with my friend “chance encounter”,

and I couldn’t see the appearance of pregnancy and childbirth at all.

A recent photo was uploaded on the 15th,

showing her slender figure and sharp chin, so that netizens believed that the news of pregnancy and childbirth was fabricated. But unexpectedly,

on December 17, Cecilia Cheung issued a statement through the studio, acknowledging the news that her third child had been born.


According to the studio’s microblog, Ms. Cecilia Cheung gave birth to her third son in November and said that she would create better growth conditions for the three children in the future, so she would bring more and better works,

announcing that the “Little Prince” had a full moon. Faced with this sudden frankness, many netizens have sent blessings, but there are also many fans who “complain” and have said why not the little princess? Don’t ask Dad who he is? Instead, they are entangled with having boys and girls. Knowing the cause of the complaint is also a real laughing and crying.

Actually, most of the netizens are happy to see Cecilia

Cheung give birth to three children as she wishes. After all, since her divorce from Tingfeng Tse, she has been living alone with her two sons and desperately needs someone to accompany her.

Nowadays, to live according to one’s own ideas and realize one’s dream of regenerating a child is a kind of hard work and willingness to move towards a new life.

Even though most of the netizens have given good wishes, there are still many netizens who disapprove of her unmarried birth and strongly urge her to announce who the father of the child is. A woman who lives with three children is not really happy. I don’t know if she has met a new boyfriend and is ready to start a new marriage relationship, as reported on the Internet.ash2019

As a well-known artist, Cecilia Cheung is certainly not short of money, but only the mother does not have a father’s life, for the children, there must be some emotional deficiencies. I hope there is a man behind her who loves her so much that she doesn’t have to work so hard in life. It remains to be seen whether officials will announce their emotional life.

From the recent sunshine on the 15th, we can see that Cecilia Cheung is sure to be back in the near future, but the third son just full moon, this time will be back to work, mother or child is not a small pressure. It’s not clear why she worked so hard.

I believe that netizens will not ignore this matter because she admits to having three babies, but will be more curious about the father of the child. In the next days, Cecilia Cheung’s mother and son will receive more attention.ash1314

When the news of her secret birth spread through the internet, I and the studio kept a tight lip. Later, Cecilia Cheung appeared again and again, as if to prove that she had not delivered. Especially in the photo shoot with friends, the friends still

inducted the public that Cecilia Cheung had no children. Think

about it carefully, if a friend does not have the advice of Cecilia Cheung, will he really speak freely about whether or not he has a baby?

It is not clear why Cecilia Cheung frequently clarified the

appearance of childbirth, nor why she should let the studio come

out when the netizens have basically decided that she has no childbirth. Since she last attended the event in May, she has

never appeared before, but when her own clothing brand

ompany was ready to open, she admitted the news of the birth of a

child, which will inevitably make netizens doubt its intention.shlf2019

After all, actresses in the entertainment industry have the default

custom of not publicizing their pregnancy before March, but they have not been publicized until the full moon of childbirth.

Cecilia Cheung is undoubtedly the first one in the entertainment industry. Pregnancy and childbirth events on the Internet fermented for a month, the event many times “God turn”,

now finally is the end of the curtain. Anyway, Cecilia Cheung gets what he wants, and netizens still want to send the most sincere happiness,shlf1314

even if they have seen the others.

Entertainment circle is true or false,

really need not spend too much energy

to ponder, just be a melon eater.



With the rapid development of society, people’s daily

With the rapid development of society, people’s daily living standards have been constantly

improving. For families today, it is still a matter of great importance for many parents to

1.let their children receive a good education. For so many years, the concept of “education


changes fate, knowledge decides the future” has been deeply rooted in the minds of many people. Now.

And relatively speaking, education is really more important, because more and more ash2019

high-end talents are needed, so college students are now very competitive, and there are

many college students will experience one thing during the school is to take CET-4 and CET-6,

for this CET-4 and CET-6, I believe many people are very familiar with, and for many universities.

It’s a nightmare in life.CET-6 last year and that they had misplaced them for more than ten minutes. After several interruptions, they were still wrong.shlf1314

Of course, CET-4 and CET-6 are very important for many college students. In order to prepare for these students, they don’t spend much time in preparing for the CET-4 and CET-6. They all want to get a good result in CET-4 and CET-6. But what we didn’t think of is that one thing that happened recently can be said to make many people startled, and nobody thought of it. In CET-4 and CET-6, there are such low-level mistakes as misplacing listening questions.

2.Because CET-4 and CET-6 are national examinations, they should be very rigorous, but recently a university in Henan Province was found to have misplaced listening in CET-4 and CET-6. The students found that they had misplaced the exam questions of CET-6 last year and that they had misplaced them for more than ten minutes. After several interruptions, they were still wrong.

There were four times before and

after the interruption. So it’s hard to say.

I didn’t expect such a farce to appear

in such an important exam.


As the weather gets colder and colder, 2018 is finally coming to

As the weather gets colder and colder, 2018 is finally coming to an end.


Events happen every year, especially this year. Beloved Aidou got married, worshipped stars retired, familiar media people died, once worshipped people quit the stage bit by bit, do not know what you got and lost in 2018, but for drip drip, 2018 is indeed a very bad year, just yesterday’s drip travel conference, 36-year-old CEO Chen Wei clearly said that 2018 is the year of his life. Employees’annual bonuses are halved, and executives have no annual bonuses.

As we all know, in 2018, because of several bad incidents of rape and murder of female passengers by drivers, users were extremely disappointed with the safety performance of drip, which led to the suspension of drip’s original plan to go public this year. Of course, in addition to the negative news impact of dripping itself, dripping this year’s overall business development is also very bad, coupled with this year’s economic circle than in the past has been relatively depressed a lot, the environment plus its own factors, leading to dripping this year’s poor results.

Droplet belongs to the kind of “other people’s annual meeting” in the past few years. According to reports, the annual end-of-the-year award grade before Droplet comes according to six months’salary, four months’ salary and two months’salary. If the salary is halved at the end of this year, it may only be one or two months’ salary. The employees of Droplet down, but they still have confidence in the company. That drop in addition to the security system of this barrier, the drop in 2019 may have to face these four barriers?

1. Safety of online car booking

This is a very serious problem that Drop has to face directly. Several downwind tragedies in 2018 have also given Drop a very profound lesson. Especially after the incident, the safety incidents that all kinds of netizens have unearthed have aggravated the public’s distrust of the safety performance of online car appointment. This is undoubtedly the most important thing that Drop should pay attention to and implement the solution. Far from saying, if even one similar thing happens again in 2019, it will be difficult to explain it to the public.

2. When will the windmill be restored

Since the tragedy happened, Drop-drop announced that it had been offline indefinitely, and it has not been restored. Although people have questioned the safety of Drop-drop, there are still many users who need to use it. Many netizens have said that “it’s really a piece of rat excrement, which damages a pot of porridge”. There is no problem with the existence of the downwind vehicle itself. Long-distance hitching is convenient. Suitable and comfortable, do not crowded buses in the early rush hours, and for those who drive by the windmill, they can earn some gas money on the way to and from work or home. The existence of the windmill has its great significance. So when the windmill will be restored is also a question.

3. Transportation Capacity Guarantee of Drop-drop Travel

Everyone knows that it is not as easy to take a taxi as it used to be. Since the government introduced the restraint management measures, it often takes a long queue to take a taxi in the rush hour sooner or later. It can’t be dispatched alone. I believe that this is also a huge problem that dripping will face in 2019.

4. How to Develop New Business

After several vicious incidents, Droplet’s new business has entered the cold winter directly. Shared bicycle, finance, automobile industry, Droplet take-out and so on are still in operation. Where are these businesses going in the cold winter of the Internet?

In 2019, we are facing so many severe challenges. From the user’s point of view, Xiaobian expects to improve the security system as soon as possible. As an Internet innovation enterprise which has been developing rapidly for six years, it is not necessarily a good thing for the company to experience some frustrations and setbacks in time.


However, in 2019,

two weeks later,

the challenge is still

not small for Xiaobian. !


A Canadian court recently ruled in the attempted killing

A Canadian court recently ruled in the attempted killing of a former roommate from

China by a doctor of polymer chemistry from Queen’s University of Canada.

The defendant, Wang Mou, 26, graduated from Sun Yat-sen University in Material Chemistry. After graduation, he was admitted to Queen’s University in Polymer Chemistry and became a doctor. Wang Mou’s academic achievements are excellent. He not only published many articles in the core journals of chemistry, but also applied for scientific and technological patents. In 2015, Queen’s University also honored his academic achievements.

Wang Mou and Hu Mou are colleagues of the same research group on polymer nanostructured materials. They had been roommates for some time. Hu said that when they shared the rent, once Wang wanted to borrow Hu’s room for a weekend party, Hu refused. But Wang Mou took advantage of Hu Mou’s absence at the weekend, and opened Hu Mou’s room directly to start “crazy”. As a result, the room was messed up by the people who attended the party. Hu Mou came home, very angry to find Wang Mou’s theory, but Wang Mou denies it. Later, Hu Mou could no longer bear Wang Mou, so he moved out.

From January this year, Hu felt that his food tasted bitter, and produced symptoms of vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and dizziness. At that time, he thought the food he bought was spoiled, so he didn’t care. But this situation lasted for about a month, arousing Hu’s vigilance. Hu also found that his water cup had a strong chemical flavor. He dared not drink any more. On January 26, his guide reported that he might be poisoned.

After the instructor authorized Hu to install a surveillance camera in front of his desk, the result of the day was that Wang Mou used a syringe to drip yellow unknown liquid into Hu Mou’s food and drinking water. Hu immediately reported the case and handed in the food that had been eaten before with the taste of chemicals. Police arrested Wang the same day, but Wang insisted that he was only playing a prank, injecting liquid is ethanol.

After careful testing, the police determined that the food contained a highly toxic substance, N-nitrodimethylamine. This chemical material is often used in the manufacture of industrial sulfur, rubber accelerants, rocket fuels and insecticides. If it enters the human body, it will cause serious damage to the liver and kidney. In the field of biomedicine, it is used to induce tumors. Hu said angrily that the police did not find out the toxicity until mid-April, when the best time for treatment had been missed and his liver was seriously damaged.

For the reason of Wang’s poisoning, Hu said it might be out of jealousy. Because they have published papers together, Hu Mou’s name ranks ahead of Wang Mou. However, Wang’s lawyer disagreed with Hu’s statement. He emphasized that Wang’s achievements were excellent and he would not commit crimes because of jealousy.

In front of the evidence, Wang only pleaded guilty and kept silent about the motive of the crime and the source of the poison. Hu Mou thinks that Wang Mou’s confession is a tactical evasion of trial, not a sincere confession, because it can be lightly punished. As for the source of the poison,

it is known that Queen’s University and Medical College

have not ordered the substance for

five years, and no one knows from what channel Wang

Mou got it. But for Wang Mou, self-configuration is not complicated.

Will the film industry bubble go back to “cold winter” and will rebirth in Nirvana?

2018 is about to pass, but this year’s movie and TV series are much less expensive than last year’s. At the Sansheng 2018 Summit, many industry insiders believed that the film and television industry may have entered a “cold winter”.


However, some people believe that “cold winter” is not necessarily a bad thing. Limiting the star’s high pay and giving the IP only a cooling will help the industry remove foam and restore rationality. Because the colder the winter,

the more quality content is needed, the more creative initiative is needed, and the more user value is needed.

“Explosion drama” reduced, the film industry bubble removed?

Compared with 2017, the performance of this year’s films and TV dramas is sluggish. Last year, TV dramas exploded continuously, from “Peach Blossoms of the Thirteenth Life”, “My First Half Life” to

“The Name of the People” and “The Flowers Blossom and Leaves Are Round That Year”. There was also a phenomenal film “Warwolf 2” in the film.


Looking back at 2018, however, TV dramas have made little money, especially Star Dramas on Satellite TV. The effects of Fuyan and Ruyi Zhuan are not as good as expected, but the unexpected fire of Yuzheng’s Yanxi Strategies.

The quantity and quality of online dramas and movies are not as good as last year. According to the “Research Report on the Development of China’s Online Audio-visual Industry in 2018”,

the total number of online dramas on the Internet reached 214 in the first three quarters of 2018, which is expected to reach 280 by the end of 2018; the number of online movies reached 1030, and the total number of online dramas is expected to reach 1373 in the whole year. Compared with 555 online dramas and 5620 online movies last year, the number of them has dropped dramatically.


IP dramas are also cooling down, and TV dramas adapted from novels such as

“Songs of Fire”, “Fengqiuhuang”, “All the Way Flowers Send Each Other” have had a flat response.

Han Zhijie, Senior Vice President of Penguin Film and Television, reviewed the failure of this year’s Big IP case, and summed up three problems: being left and right by data, catering to the market, betting more energy and budget on traffic stars rather than creating. In his view, IP itself is not wrong, but the market’s perception of IP is wrong.

“The market is becoming more and more mature, and the platform is growing. Now it’s hard to get a pass if you want to hold a page of PPT for sale.” He said.

Wang Ran, founder of Yikai Capital, believes that the so-called “cold winter” has several major backgrounds. One is that in the past five years, a large influx of funds into the film and television industry, coupled with a large demand for content on the three major video websites, has created a large number of “players” who should not enter the industry. And many companies have low profitability, hovering between loss and small profit.

In his view, the low threshold of the film and television industry will lead to inadequate investment in the early stage of IP development, it is difficult to form a large-scale and predictable value precipitation,

film and television companies in front of the

front-line cafe has become a “vulnerable group”,

independent film and television

companies are also difficult to form a scale.

Wen Chou’s soldiers approached under cover. As they drew near

Wen Chou’s soldiers approached under cover. As they drew near, the officers told Cao Cao, saying, “The rebels are near. We ought to catch the horses and go back to Baima.”

But Adviser Xun You checked them, saying, “These are a bait for the enemy. Why retire?”

  Cao Cao glanced across at him and said, “He understands. Do not say anything.”

  Now having got possession of the supply carts, the enemy next came to seize the horses. By this time they had all broken ranks and were scattered, each soldier going his own way. Then suddenly Cao Cao gave the order to go down from the mounds and smite them.

  the surprise was complete. Wen Chou’s army was in confusion, and Cao Cao’s army surrounded them. Wen Chou made a stand, but those about him trampled each other down, and he could do nothing but flee. And he fled.

  then standing on the top of a mound Cao Cao pointed to the flying leader, calling out, “There is one of the most famous generals of the north. Who can capture him?”

  Zhang Liao and Xu Huang both mounted and dashed after him, crying, “Wen Chou, do not run away!”

  Looking round, the fugitive saw two pursuers, and then he set aside his spear, took his bow and adjusted an arrow, which he shot at Zhang Liao.

  “Cease shooting, you rebel!” shouted Xu Huang.

  Zhang Liao ducked his head, and the shaft went harmlessly by, save that it carried away the tassel of his cap. He only pressed harder in pursuit. The next arrow however struck his horse in the head, and the animal stumbled and fell, throwing its rider to the earth.

  then Wen Chou turned to come back. Xu Huang, whirling his battle-ax, stood in his way to stop Wen Chou. But Xu Huang saw behind Wen Chou several more horsemen coming to help; and as they would have been too many for him, he fled. Wen Chou pursued along the river bank. Suddenly he saw coming toward him with banners fluttering in the breeze, a small party of horse, and the leader carried a GREat sword.

“Stop!” cried Guan Yu, for it was he, and he attacked at once.

  At the third bout Wen Chou’s heart failed him, and he wheeled and fled, following the windings of the river. But Guan Yu’s steed was fast and soon caught up. One blow, and the hapless Wen Chou fell.

  When Cao Cao saw from the mound that the leader of the enemy had fallen, he gave the signal for a general onset, and half of the northern army were drowned in the river. And the carts with supplies and all the horses were quickly recovered.

Now Guan Yu, at the head of a few horsemen, was thrusting here and striking there at the moment when Liu Bei, with the thirty thousand reserve troops, appeared on the battle field on the other bank of the river. At once they told him that the red-faced, long-bearded warrior was there and had slain Wen Chou. Liu Bei hastily

pressed forward to try to get a

look at the warrior. He saw across the river a

body of horse and the banners

bore the words Guan Yu, Lord of Hanshou.


Precisely by being so slow. Sleepiness and sloth-fulness keepit out

Precisely by being so slow. Sleepiness and sloth-fulness keepit out of harm’s way,

away from the notice of jaguars, ocelots,harpy eagles and anacondas. A sloth’s

hairs shelter an algaethat is brown during the dry season and green during the

wetseason, so the animal blends in with the surrounding moss andfoliage and


looks like a nest of white ants or of squirrels, orlike nothing at all but part of a tree.
The three-toed sloth lives a peaceful, vegetarian life in perfectharmony with its

environment. “A good-natured smile is foreveron its lips,” reported Tirler (1966).


I have seen that smile withmy own eyes. I am not one given to projecting human

traitsand emotions onto animals, but many a time during thatmonth in Brazil,

looking up at sloths in repose, I felt I was inthe presence of upside-down yogis


deep in meditation orhermits deep in prayer, wise beings whose intense

imaginativelives were beyond the reach of my scientific probing.

Sometimes I got my majors mixed up. A number of myfellow religious-studies

students – muddled agnostics who didn’tknow which way was up, who were

in the thrall of reason,that fool’s gold for the bright – reminded me of the


three-toedsloth; and the three-toed sloth, such a beautiful example of

themiracle of life, reminded me of God.
