There is something inspiringly humane in Scrooge’s revelations and reformation. On our campus, there is no shortage of tales of inspiring philanthropy. In this holiday issue we meet one of our longtime benefactors Ms. Ruth Kuok who spent some merry time with three present and former students who got a little help from her scholarships. Overburdening one’s digestive system is a common side-effect of festive feastings in the developed world. At CUHK, the team of medical researchers led by Prof. Justin Wu are making significant progress in the use of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation to treat serious enteric infections. Readers are introduced to the theory of restoring the ecology within our guts with the introduction of good bacteria from others and the meticulous procedures of ensuring that happens. Equally meticulous and organized is the person whose job it is to make sure that our campus is safe and convenient to the population thereon. Mr. Simon Lee, Director of Security and Transport, may be new in town, but within six months he has covered most corners and tracks on campus. After the busy month of congregations and alumni homecoming, Mr. Lee finally had time to speak to ‘Viva Voce’. 19 · 12 · 2015 目录 CONTENTS 2 洞明集 In Plain View 从贫瘠到肥沃─移植人体花 园的土壤 May Your Flora Flourish in My Inner Garden 4 好人好事 Fine Folks Fine Deeds 有一种感染名叫善行 Fine Deeds Are Contagious 6 . . . 校园消息 Campus News 10 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 11 字里高科 Tech Talks 11 宝健保健 Wealth In Health 12 口谈实录 Viva Voce Photo by ISO staff 香港国际诗歌之夜2015 (页10) International Poetry Nights 2015 ( p. 10 ) 摩洛哥诗人穆罕默德 ・ 贝尼斯朗读其诗作 Poet Mohammed Bennis of Morocco reading 走遍校园每个角落 (页12) Knowing the Campus Inside Out ( p. 12 ) 摄影:黄振强 Photo by Dennis Wong
