2 Background to the Annual Report of the Chinese Welfare Association (1998)

Since then the Chinese population has continued to grow in number and economic strength to become the largest minority ethnic group.

2.1 Issues of responsibility

The aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami saw an unprecedented aid effort to assist the affected regions. In the early days after the disaster, pledges of financial assistance from overseas governments were often outstripped by the generosity of their own populaces. This was a case when ordinary people around the world saw and were moved by the tragic circumstances of others far away (Rose, 2006), and they responded with gifts of money and provisions, and even with offers of their own sk

Population Growth- Baby Boom
After World War II had drawn to a close, the United States experienced unprecedented population growth that to this day has shaped the social and political landscape of the country, and changed how and where many Americans live. Known as the "baby boom," this population expansion took place between the years 1946 and 1964, with the peak occurring in 1957. The elevated birthrate, unparalleled in American history, added more than 50 million babies by the end of the 1950s. (Video is narrated with s

Surprise Health Findings from a Smartwatch
This talk will highlight several surprising findings we discovered from wearable sensing of autonomic stress data and physical activity in daily life. For example, we learned that sensing from the surface of the wrist can tell us more about certain neurological events – such as memory consolidation during sleep – than can the EEG. We have also created a wrist-worn seizure detector. Lately, we have demonstrated new analytics that adapt the motion sensors in common consumer devices to also pro
