S. Eliot thus begins The Waste Land . To character April as cruel or cruelest is no doubt an exercise in poetic licence. But it is probably not far from the truth to say that quite a few of us harbour quite a few doubts about the imminent launching of the CUHK Personnel Information System (CUPIS). The Newsletter talked to the project managers of CUPIS and a few colleagues from different offices and levels of responsibility. As readers will find out, there’s actually more support than skepticism in those who will find CUPIS a companion on a daily basis. April will not be so cruel after all. Few stories of loss would have inspired as much gain as that told in ‘Fine Folks Fine Deeds’ in these pages. Ms. Jennifer Chen, an ardent supporter of CUHK’s brain cancer initiatives, has turned the remembrance of her late husband into philanthropic endeavours one after another. Hers is an uplifting story of love both enduring and encompassing. ‘Brain Trekking’, a walking campaign to raise fund and awareness of brain cancer supported by Jennifer, will be held on 23 April. April cannot be cruel, after all. Mr. Edmond Lam ( photo ) heads the largest service unit of CUHK.
