Mead, whose achievements and influence went way beyond her anthropological works at Samoa and New Guinea, should nod approvingly if she sees what the teachers and students of anthropology at CUHK are doing. We hear from department chairman Prof. Gordon Mathews and some of the students on their rhyme and reasons for engaging in anthropological studies. Einstein knew better than believing that physical forces rule everything on earth. He did not believe God plays dice, either. Neither does Prof. Dickon Ng ( photo ), chairman of the physics department. We will hear him out on what makes Physics@CUHK strong and unique, why he appeared on TV to expound on physical phenomena and ultimately his view of the best thing in life. Fine folks bring fine things to other people’s lives. We pay tribute to Mr. Edwin Mok and Mrs. Joy Chung of the E&R Foundation and hear their fine deeds of bringing fine music to young people in Hong Kong and how they embrace I • CARE like an old friend. 19 • 11 • 2015 目录 CONTENTS 2 特写 Feature 浅谈人类学与教育 Enriching our Education with Anthropology 4 好人好事 Fine Folks Fine Deeds 心诚,则事成 Dedication Makes Success 5 . . . 校园消息 Campus News 7 字里高科 Tech Talks 7 宝健保健 Wealth In Health 8 宣布事项 Announcements 9 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 10 口谈实录 Viva Voce Photo by ISO staff 「张佬」金禧 新闻与传播学院成立于1965年,今年正值其五十周年院庆,学院特于新亚书院「小百万大道」前搭起巨型花牌贺寿,非常醒目 To celebrate its golden jubilee, the School of Journalism and Communication specially built a gigantic, eye-catching traditional Chinese flower plaque on the avenue outside the Humanities Building at New Asia College 物理学的理智与感性 (页10) Physics: Sense and Sensibility ( p. 10 ) School of Journalism and Communication’s 50th Anniversary
