Who am I? Where am I? Who is trying to wake me up?
Though the woken sleepwalker will not be scared to death, they would just be confused like ordinary people who woke up. For some cases, they might act violently due to the confusion.
They open their eyes during sleepwalking. Not only can they walk freely, but also carry out habitual behavior. Since the brain is in dormant state, patient cannot distinguish any ongoing events. For example, inability in face recognition, no reaction to pain stimulation, talking to oneself without communication.
We do not want to indulge in dreams. But who is stopping the sleepwalkers from wakening...

Fredrick Scott Archer (1813-1857) invented the photographic wet-collodion process in the 19th century. A mixture of a bromide, iodide or chloride dissolved in collodion was poured onto a tintype or clean glass plate for a few seconds. Once this reaction was complete, then moved on to expose, develop, fix and finally rinse it. As the glass plate is getting wet throughout the whole processes from adding the chemicals to taking the picture, this process is also known as “Wet Plate Collodion Photography”.
The University Library will be hosting an exhibition “Hong Kong Through the Lens of John Thomson” from 15 November 2018 to 28 February 2019. The majority of his photographic work was produced using what is known as the “wet-collodion” process. This workshop will introduce the...

From the Mountains to the Sea： Sichuan Sanxingdui & Jiangkou Battlefield．Guangdong Nanhai No.I Shipwreck Archaeology Internship 2017-2018 Exhibition15/10/2018 to 20/12/2018
Only through the “touching the ground” experience, can we understand the meaning of material culture in the past and explain to our contemporaries why we need to care about archaeological ruins. Our students learned a wide range of fieldwork skills and techniques through these meaningful archaeological internships. More important, the hands-on experience provides a great chance to them for better understanding the Bronze Age civilization in Sichuan and the Jiangkou sunken treasure legend. To team up with the underwater archaeology group, we want to present not only the fascinating archaeological experience “From the Mountains (Sichuan) to the Sea (Guangdong)” but also provide the general public some reflections inspired by these internships such as the variety and diversity of ancient...

“Re-”, a prefix, carries meanings like “afresh”, “anew”, and indicates withdrawal or restoration.
Animals have the instinct response to lick an injury. However, it is not a way to aid wound healing. Such act can only reduce pain and smooth emotions. Human give animals a Buster collar in order to prevent them from wound licking, since “the wound will get infected” and “it is not good for their health”.
Aren’t human doing the same thing though?
