Golden swimmer

帅气宁泽涛,泳坛新“飞鱼”

A BRIGHT sports star is rising. His name is Ning Zetao.

At the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the 21-year-old Chinese swimmer won a total of four golds and broke the Asian record for the 100m freestyle with a time of 47.70 seconds. It has been recognized by FINA (International Swimming Federation, 国际泳联) as the third fastest this year.

Besides the amazing achievements, Ning has also caught the hearts of many fans with his good looks. Overnight, he became the heartthrob (万人迷) of millions of Chinese.

But Ning takes it with a pinch of salt (不以为意). He said rather than a heartthrob, he would like to be called “Bro Bun (“包子哥”)”, his old nickname due to his passion for steamed buns.

 “A bun looks plain but the fillings are rich,” said Ning. “Just like a person’s personality is more important than his appearance.”

Guo Hongyan, Ning’s teenage coach in his hometown Henan, said Ning is not someone that can be easily influenced (影响) by others. “He has a cool head. He is able to focus and control himself.”

During the 4x100m freestyle relay final, Ning was racing the last leg (一段赛程). When he dived into the pool, China was 0.86 seconds behind Japan. It was in the last 15 meters that Ning overtook Japan with an impressive charge to touch home first.

 “No matter how much our rivals (对手) go ahead of us, we’d catch them!” he said after the race.

The confident young man is now looking to the future. His next goal is to win gold at the FINA World Championships in 2015. Good luck, Ning!

 

Stampede costs lives

如何在校园里保护自己的安全?

THEY were young and happy boys and girls, but their lives came to a tragic early end. On Sept 26, six students died and 31 were injured in a stampede (踩踏) at Mingtong Primary School in Kunming, Yunnan.

The accident happened when a two-meter long cotton cushion (垫子), which was used for gym class, fell over and blocked a stairway corridor (走廊). Several children were trapped underneath and their schoolmates rushed out and stepped on them without realizing.

    This is not the first tragedy in recent times. Last year, four children died in a stampede at a school in Xiangyang, Hubei, when pupils left their dormitory on the fourth floor and tried to get out. The ground floor gate was closed, resulting in the crush.

According to a survey done by the China Youth and Children Research Center, about 16,000 elementary and middle school students in China were killed every year resulting from an accident. The main causes come from stampedes, earthquakes, fires and sports injuries.

A stampede is possible anywhere. The larger a crowd, the more likely a stampede becomes.? On March 31, the National Day of Education on the Safety of Elementary and Middle School Students, the Ministry of Education gave out instructions: If students around you begin to push, stand still and try to hold onto something, or stay in a corner until the crowd leaves. If you fall down in a moving crowd, cover your head with both hands. Lean to one side, curl your body and bend your legs.

 

Were there feathers on dinosaurs?

恐龙到底是什么样子?

IN movies like Jurassic Park (《侏罗纪公园》), we are shocked by the giant and hard-skinned dinosaurs walking the Earth. With imagination and technology, the dinosaurs in the movie look so vivid that we believe the ones in real life were just like this.

But in fact, it is not true about real life dinosaurs, the BBC reported.

A few months ago, an international team of scientists discovered 150-million-year-old dinosaur fossils (化石) in Siberia, Russia. The fossils showed that feathers were much more widespread among dinosaurs than previously thought.

The find has completely changed our vision that the skin of dinosaurs is leathery (似皮革的), the lead scientist, Pascal Godefroit, of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science in Brussels told BBC News.

The creature, called Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus (萨白卡尔古林达奔龙), was about 1 meter long, with a short snout (口鼻部), long hind legs, short arms, and five strong fingers.

This is not the first time scientists have found feathered dinosaurs. Over the past 20 years, scientists have found at least five species (种类) of feathered dinosaurs in China.

 “Probably that means the common ancestor (祖先) of all dinosaurs had feathers,” Godefroit said. “Feathers are not a characteristic [just] of birds but of all dinosaurs.”

What’s more, the size of some dinosaurs in the movie isn’t correct. For example, the velociraptors (迅猛龙) in Jurassic Park are bigger than humans. But the real velociraptors should be much smaller, about the size of a large chicken.

Fiction is fiction. Sometimes, it scarifies (牺牲) truth to entertain audiences. But this doesn’t mean you can learn nothing from them. BBC’s documentary Walking With Dinosaurs is proud of being as true to life as possible. If you are a big fan of dinosaurs, you can take it as a window to get close to the science of dinosaurs.
