Sammi Cheng Sau-man is a Hong Kong singer and actress. She is one of the most prominent female singers in Hong Kong, with album sales of over 25 million copies throughout the Asia-pacific. Most notably in the 1990s, she was dubbed by the media as diva. Having success in entertainment industry for about three decades, Cheng has been regarded as one of the most popular Hong Kong artists known in Asia Pacific. Cheng holds the record of having the most best sales albums and The Best Sales Local Female Vocalist awards in the Hong Kong Cantopop industry since her debut. From 1993 to 2010, Cheng won a total of 12 Top Female Vocalist awards, 14 The Best Sales Local Female Vocalist Awards and has 7 albums that are The Best Sales Cantonese Release of year, she had previously won the Most Popular Hong Kong Female Artist Award in annual Top Ten Jade Solid Gold Awards Presentation for three times, in a year winning the Gold Song Gold Award, the highest-ranked award, the last to be presented at the ceremony.

She is one of the female artists with most number of concert shows in Hong Kong Coliseum, at 89. Sammi Cheng was named Twinnie Cheng. Contrary to popular belief, "Twiny" is not her birth name; the name came about when Sammi was still in school and her English Language teacher wanted everyone in class to have an English name. When Sammi turned to her sister for help, her sister came up with the name "Twiny"; the name was changed to "Sammi" as "Sammi" sounds a little like "Sau Man". Cheng received her education at SKH St. Peter's Primary School and Tang Shiu Kin Victoria Government Secondary School.
She has one brother. Two of her sisters are twins. Sammi Cheng entered the entertainment industry at the age of 16 through the New Talent Singing Awards in 1988. Although she came in third in the competition, the sponsoring record company Capital Artists saw her potential and offered her a recording contract. Cheng at the time was still in school, had to balance her studies with her rising singing career. Sammi released 3 full-length studio albums prior to leaving school: "Sammi", "Holiday" and "Never Too Late". One of her first major award was the 1990 RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards, where she was recognized as a best new prospect, she capitalized on the attention received from her duet with artist Andy Hui, "Do you have me in your heart?", winning the 1993 Jade Solid Gold Top 10 Awards with that song. Cheng went through a transformation, dying her hair orange, changing her style, her 4th studio album "Sammi's Happy Maze" was released, which include the hit single "Chotto Matte". Her new image fitted well with the new single, a remake of a Japanese song by Maki Ohguro.
The success boosted her singing career. In 1994 she continued to capitalize on her new image, her first album of that year was "Big Revenge". The album included the hit "Ding Dong", but with her new fame came a lot of backlash from the media. Critics argued. Instead of saying "Ding Dong", Sammi pronounced it as "Deen Dong". Despite the criticism, the song was one of the most popular dance songs of that year. In 1994 the racy and controversial cut of "Ten Commandments" was banned from the radio for a few days after its initial airplay of the track including tiny bits of what can be recognized as pornography soundtrack. In 1995 Cheng disappeared from the public eye for nearly half a year; that year, it was revealed that Warner Music Group had signed her. She temporarily abandoned the wild image she used to have. In 1995 she released her first album "Missing you". In 1996, the company decided it was time for Sammi to expand her market and fan base beyond Hong Kong, they released her first Mandarin album, "Worth It".
The album was number one on the Taiwan IFPI chart for six consecutive weeks. She won a number of awards, most notably she was voted back-to-back as the most popular female artist by TVB from 1996 to 1997, she went on to win the top female award again in 2001. She would finish that year with her first concert titled "Sammi's X-Dimension Concert". In 1998 she was a featured star in a Heineken sponsored Music Horizons concert along with international singers such as Boyz II Men and Julian Lennon. By the time Cheng was 24 years old, she had released four greatest hits albums. In the 1990s, another female star, Faye Wong was one of her main rivals; when they were on stage together, they would be cold to one another. The rivalry was confirmed in the 1999 TVB music award night. Both Wong and Cheng were arranged to sit next to each other backstage. Cheng avoided Wong by going off stage to fix her make-up. In addition, her fans hissed at Faye Wong when she went on stage to receive an award. Wong herself has insisted that the rivalry wasn't true, that she was friendly toward Cheng.
In July 2004, she held 7 nights of "Sammi Vs Sammi" concerts in Hong Kong. She broke the record as being the youngest female singer to hold more than 50 accumulated con
City University of Hong Kong
City University of Hong Kong is a public research university in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was founded in 1984 as City Polytechnic of Hong Kong and became a accredited university in 1994, it is one of eight government-funded degree-granting tertiary institutions. The university has five colleges and four schools: the College of Business, College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, College of Science, Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences, the School of Creative Media, School of Data Science, School of Energy and Environment and School of Law. City University's origins lie in the calls for a "second polytechnic" in the years following the 1972 establishment of the Hong Kong Polytechnic. In 1982, Executive Council member Chung Sze-yuen spoke of a general consensus that "a second polytechnic of similar size to the first should be built as soon as possible." District administrators from Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan lobbied the government to build the new institution in their respective new towns.
The government instead purchased temporary premises at the new Argyle Centre Tower II in Mong Kok, a property developed by the Mass Transit Railway Corporation in concert with the then-Argyle Station. The new school was called City Polytechnic of Hong Kong, a name chosen among nearly 300 suggestions made by members of the public; the new polytechnic opened on 8 October 1984. The provision for part-time students contributed to high enrolment, with the quota being filled immediately; the architectural contract to design the new campus was won by Percy Thomas Partnership in association with Alan Fitch and W. N. Chung, it was slated to open by October 1988. The first phase was opened by Governor Wilson on 15 January 1990, boasted 14 lecture theatres and 1,500 computers. By 1991, the school had over 8,000 full-time students and 3,000 part-time students; the second phase of the permanent campus opened 1993. The school achieved university status in 1994 and the name was changed accordingly. In April 2015 the university abruptly and controversially shut down its MFA programme in creative writing.
Students and alumni launched a petition against the decision, while the faculty and noted international writers issued an open letter questioning the reasoning behind the closure. Acclaimed Canadian novelist and faculty member Madeleine Thien, writing in The Guardian, was among those who attributed the decision to censorship and diminishing freedom of expression in Hong Kong. In 2017 City University was accused of falsifying student data for a better ranking. City University said. City University of Hong Kong is located on Kowloon, it is near Kowloon Tong Station, which serves the East Rail Line and Kwun Tong Line of Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway system. It is adjacent to Shek Kip Mei Park, Nam Shan Estate and the Festival Walk shopping centre; the main campus covers around 15.6 hectares. The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre is an academic building on the campus, completed in 2011, it was designed by Daniel Libeskind cooperating with Leigh and Orange Ltd. and received several awards on its design.
It was funded with a donation of HK$100 million from the Shaw Foundation and is named after Run Run Shaw. The building houses the university's School of Creative Media, the Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media and the computer science and communication, English departments. Hu Fa Kuang Sports Centre is a five-storey sports centre which houses a multi-purpose hall and four practice gymnasiums for badminton, volleyball, martial arts and dance, other activities. In May 2016, the 1,400 square metre roof of the Chan Tai Ho multi-purpose hall at the sports centre, covered with a living roof completed only two months suddenly collapsed, injuring three people; the governing council comprises 23 university members. The chief executive of Hong Kong has the power to appoint 15 of the 23 council members, seven of which are named directly and eight appointed upon recommendation of the council; the chief executive can appoint the chairman and treasurer..

Simon Fraser University
Simon Fraser University is a public research university in British Columbia, with three campuses: Burnaby and Vancouver. The 1.7 km2 main Burnaby campus on Burnaby Mountain, located 20 km from downtown Vancouver, was established in 1965 and comprises more than 30,000 students and 950 faculty members. The Burnaby campus is on the territory of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and Kwikwetlem First Nations. Undergraduate and graduate programs at SFU operate on a year-round, three-semester schedule, it is the only Canadian university which competes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. SFU was the first Canadian research university with U. S. is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. To date, SFU faculty and alumni have won 43 fellowships to the Royal Society of Canada, three Rhodes Scholarships and one Pulitzer Prize. Simon Fraser University was founded upon the recommendation of a 1962 report entitled Higher Education in British Columbia and a Plan for the Future, by John B.
Macdonald. He recommended the creation of a new university in the Lower Mainland and the British Columbia Legislature gave formal assent on March 1, 1963 for the establishment of the university in Burnaby; the university was named after a North West Company fur trader and explorer. The original name of the school was Fraser University, but was changed because the initials "FU" evoked the profane phrase "fuck you". In May of the same year, Gordon M. Shrum was appointed as the university's first chancellor. From a variety of sites that were offered, Shrum recommended to the provincial government that the summit of Burnaby Mountain, 365 meters above sea level, be chosen for the new university. Architects Arthur Erickson and Geoffrey Massey won a competition to design the university, construction began in the spring of 1964; the campus faces northwest over Burrard Inlet. Eighteen months on September 9, 1965, the university began its first semester with 2,500 students; the campus was noted in the 1960s and early 1970s as a hotbed of political activism, culminating in a crisis in the Department of Political Science and Anthropology in a dispute involving ideological differences among faculty.
The resolution to the crisis included the dismantling of the department into today's separate departments. The school's original coat of arms was used from the university's inception until 2006, at which point the Board of Governors voted to adapt the old coat of arms and thereby register a second coat of arms; the adaptation replaced two crosslets with books after some in the university asserted the crosses had misled prospective foreign students into believing SFU was a private, religious institution rather than a public, secular one. In 2007, the university decided to register both the old coat of arms and the revised coat of arms featuring the books. In 2007, a new marketing logo was unveiled. SFU's president is Andrew Petter, whose term began on September 1, 2010. Petter succeeded Dr. Michael Stevenson, who held a decade-long post as president from 2000 to 2010. In 2009, SFU became the first Canadian university to be accepted into the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Starting in the 2011-2012 season, SFU competed in the NCAA's Division II Great Northwest Athletic Conference and has now transitioned all 19 Simon Fraser Clan teams into the NCAA.
SFU has the highest publication impact among Canadian comprehensive universities and the highest success rates per faculty member in competitions for federal research council funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. In 2007, the University began offering dual and double degree programs by partnering with international universities, such as a dual computing-science degree through partnership with Zhejiang University in China and a double Bachelor of Arts degree in conjunction with Australia's Monash University. On September 9, 2015, SFU celebrated its 50th anniversary. Over its 50 years, the university educated over 130,000 graduates. There are eight faculties at Simon Fraser University: In the academic year 2010–11, SFU had 29,697 undergraduates, with 14,911 of them being full-time and 14,786 part-time; the university has grown in recent years achieving an alumni population of over 100,000. It had 3,403 staff.
In fall semester 2012, 4,269 International students enrolled, making up 17% of the undergraduate student body, one of the highest among Canadian universities. The majority of these international students come from South Korea. SFU's undergraduate student union is known as the Simon Fraser Student Society; the university enrolls over 5,000 graduate students in a wide range of full-time and part-time academic programs. International students constitute 20% of the graduate student population as a whole and 30–40% in science and technology areas. A Graduate Student Society advocates for graduate students at the university. SFU offers non-credit programs and courses to adult students; as of 2016, SFU Continuing Studies offers more than 300 courses and 27 certificate and diploma programs delivered either online or part-time from SFU's downtown Vancouver or Surrey campus. Continuing Studies manages a part-time degree completion program, called SFU NOW: Nights or Weekends, for wo
Folk music includes traditional folk music and the genre that evolved from it during the 20th-century folk revival. Some types of folk music may be called world music. Traditional folk music has been defined in several ways: as music transmitted orally, music with unknown composers, or music performed by custom over a long period of time, it has been contrasted with classical styles. The term originated in the 19th century. Starting in the mid-20th century, a new form of popular folk music evolved from traditional folk music; this process and period is reached a zenith in the 1960s. This form of music is sometimes called contemporary folk music or folk revival music to distinguish it from earlier folk forms. Smaller, similar revivals have occurred elsewhere in the world at other times, but the term folk music has not been applied to the new music created during those revivals; this type of folk music includes fusion genres such as folk rock, folk metal, others. While contemporary folk music is a genre distinct from traditional folk music, in U.
S. English it shares the same name, it shares the same performers and venues as traditional folk music; the terms folk music, folk song, folk dance are comparatively recent expressions. They are extensions of the term folklore, coined in 1846 by the English antiquarian William Thoms to describe "the traditions and superstitions of the uncultured classes"; the term further derives from the German expression volk, in the sense of "the people as a whole" as applied to popular and national music by Johann Gottfried Herder and the German Romantics over half a century earlier. Though it is understood that folk music is music of the people, observers find a more precise definition to be elusive; some do not agree that the term folk music should be used. Folk music may tend to have certain characteristics but it cannot be differentiated in purely musical terms. One meaning given is that of "old songs, with no known composers", another is that of music, submitted to an evolutionary "process of oral transmission....
The fashioning and re-fashioning of the music by the community that give it its folk character". Such definitions depend upon " processes rather than abstract musical types...", upon "continuity and oral transmission...seen as characterizing one side of a cultural dichotomy, the other side of, found not only in the lower layers of feudal and some oriental societies but in'primitive' societies and in parts of'popular cultures'". One used definition is "Folk music is what the people sing". For Scholes, as well as for Cecil Sharp and Béla Bartók, there was a sense of the music of the country as distinct from that of the town. Folk music was "...seen as the authentic expression of a way of life now past or about to disappear" in "a community uninfluenced by art music" and by commercial and printed song. Lloyd rejected this in favour of a simple distinction of economic class yet for him true folk music was, in Charles Seeger's words, "associated with a lower class" in culturally and stratified societies.
In these terms folk music may be seen as part of a "schema comprising four musical types:'primitive' or'tribal'. Music in this genre is often called traditional music. Although the term is only descriptive, in some cases people use it as the name of a genre. For example, the Grammy Award used the terms "traditional music" and "traditional folk" for folk music, not contemporary folk music. Folk music may include most indigenous music. From a historical perspective, traditional folk music had these characteristics: It was transmitted through an oral tradition. Before the 20th century, ordinary people were illiterate; this was not mediated by books or recorded or transmitted media. Singers may extend their repertoire using broadsheets or song books, but these secondary enhancements are of the same character as the primary songs experienced in the flesh; the music was related to national culture. It was culturally particular. In the context of an immigrant group, folk music acquires an extra dimension for social cohesion.
It is conspicuous in immigrant societies, where Greek Australians, Somali Americans, Punjabi Canadians, others strive to emphasize their differences from the mainstream. They learn songs and dances that originate in the countries their grandparents came from, they commemorate personal events. On certain days of the year, such as Easter, May Day, Christmas, particular songs celebrate the yearly cycle. Weddings and funerals may be noted with songs and special costumes. Religious festivals have a folk music component. Choral music at these events brings children and non-professional singers to participate in a public arena, giving an emotional bonding, unrelated to the aesthetic qualities of the music; the songs have been performed, by custom, over a long period of time several generations. As a side-effect, the following characteristics are sometimes present: There is no copyright on the songs. Hundreds of folk songs from the 19th century have known authors but have continued in oral tradition to the point where they are considered traditional for purposes of music publishing.
This has become much less frequent since the 1940s. Today every folk song, recorded is credited with an arranger. Fusion of cultures: Because cultures interact and change over time
University of British Columbia
The University of British Columbia is a public research university with campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna, British Columbia. Established in 1908, UBC is British Columbia's oldest university; the university is ranked among the top 20 public universities worldwide and among the top three in Canada. With an annual research budget of $600 million, UBC funds over 8,000 projects a year; the Vancouver campus is situated about 10 km west of Downtown Vancouver. UBC is home to TRIUMF, Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics, which houses the world's largest cyclotron. In addition to the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies and Stuart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute, UBC and the Max Planck Society collectively established the first Max Planck Institute in North America, specializing in quantum materials. One of the largest research libraries in Canada, the UBC Library system has over 9.9 million volumes among its 21 branches. The Okanagan campus, acquired in 2005, is located in Kelowna, British Columbia.
As of 2017, eight Nobel laureates, 71 Rhodes scholars, 65 Olympians, eight Fellows in both American Academy of Arts & Sciences and the Royal Society, 208 Fellows to the Royal Society of Canada have been affiliated with UBC. Three Canadian prime ministers, including Canada's first female prime minister Kim Campbell and current prime minister Justin Trudeau have been educated at UBC. In 1877, six years after British Columbia joined Canada, the Superintendent of Education, John Jessop, submitted a proposal for the formation of a provincial university; the provincial legislature passed An Act Respecting the University of British Columbia in 1890, but disagreements arose over whether to build the university on Vancouver Island or the mainland. The British Columbia University Act of 1908 formally called a provincial university into being, although its location was not specified; the governance was modelled on the provincial University of Toronto Act of 1906 which created a bicameral system of university government consisting of a senate, responsible for academic policy, a board of governors exercising exclusive control over financial policy and having formal authority in all other matters.
The president, appointed by the board, was to provide a link between the two bodies and to perform institutional leadership. The Act constituted a twenty-one member senate with Francis Carter-Cotton of Vancouver as chancellor. Before the University Act, there had been several attempts at creating a degree-granting university with help from the Universities of Toronto and McGill. Columbian College in New Westminster, through its affiliation with Victoria College of the University of Toronto, began to offer university-level credit at the turn-of-the-century, but McGill came to dominate higher education in the early 1900s. Building on a successful affiliation between Vancouver and Victoria high schools with McGill University, Henry Marshall Tory helped establish the McGill University College of British Columbia. From 1906 to 1915, McGill BC operated as a private institution providing the first few years toward a degree at McGill University or elsewhere; the Henry Marshall Tory Medal was established in 1941 by Tory, founding president of the University of Alberta and of the National Research Council of Canada, a co-founder of Carleton University.
In the meantime, appeals were made to the government to revive the earlier legislation for a provincial institution, leading to the University Endowment Act in 1907, the University Act in 1908. In 1910 the Point Grey site was chosen, the government appointed Dr. Frank Fairchild Wesbrook as president in 1913, Leonard Klinck as dean of Agriculture in 1914. A declining economy and the outbreak of war in August 1914 compelled the University to postpone plans for building at Point Grey, instead the former McGill University College site at Fairview became home to the University until 1925. On the first day of lectures was September 30, 1915, the new independent university absorbed McGill University College; the University of British Columbia awarded its first degrees in 1916, Klinck became the second president in 1919, serving until 1940. World War I dominated campus life, the student body was "decimated" by enlistments for active service, with three hundred UBC students in Company "D" alone. By the war's end, 697 members of the University had enlisted.
109 students graduated in the three war-time congregations, all but one in the Faculty of Arts and Science. By 1920, the university had only three faculties: Arts, Applied Science, Agriculture, it only awarded the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. There were 576 male students and 386 female students in the 1920–21 winter session, but only 64 academic staff, including 6 women. In the early part of the 20th century, professional education expanded beyond the traditional fields of theology and medicine. Although UBC did not offer degrees in these fields, it began to offer degrees in new professional areas such as engineering, agriculture and school teaching, it introduced graduate training based on the German-inspired American model of specialized course work and the completion of a research thesis, with students completing M. A. degrees in natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. In 1922, the twelve-hundred-strong student body embarked on a "Build the University" campaign.
Students marched through the streets of Vancouver to draw attention to their plight, enlist popular support, embarrass the government. Fifty-six thousand signatures were presented at legislature in support of the campaign, which
Hong Kong Coliseum
Hong Kong Coliseum known as the Hung Hom Coliseum is a multi-purpose indoor arena, in Hung Hom Bay, Hong Kong. It was built by the Urban Council and inaugurated on 27 April 1983; the coliseum has 12,500 seats, the second largest among indoor facilities in Hong Kong, only behind the 2005-opened AsiaWorld–Arena. It is now managed by Cultural Service Department of the Hong Kong Government; the Hong Kong Coliseum consists of a number of conference rooms. The arena is rectangular with a concrete cement flooring. During performances, the floor may be covered with different overmounted floorings, such as demountable wooden flooring or various rubberized roll-outs, to facilitate the set-up of sporting equipment and the playing of different sporting activities such as futsal, basketball and ice-skating. Moreover, the floor can hold strong pressures up to 1,800 kg/m2, which cannot be done by industrial buildings; this facilitates the set up of stages and sound equipments during concerts and other concert-like performances that requires an elevated stage and good PA systems.
Different technical equipments and a 4-side colour television projection system are present to project the performer's image onto a screen, so that audience sitting around the rear side of the stadium can see clearly. The Hong Kong Coliseum offers both sheltered areas for holding conventions and conferences; the demountable open stage provides the arena with an excellent forum for public assemblies as well as staging live television broadcasts of opening ceremonies. The reception room acts as an assistant facility for hirers of the arena and the conference rooms to accommodate visiting VIPs; the room can hold 60 persons. Though its formal name in Chinese translates to "Sports Arena", the venue serves as a concert venue for popular singers. In addition, some universities rent it every year for congregation; some performances like ice-skating choose Hong Kong Coliseum as their stages. It is used every year from 1991 to hold the Miss Hong Kong Pageant, except for 2008, it hosts a part of the FIVB Volleyball Women's Nations League for volleyball every year.
On 3 June 2001, Irish vocal pop band Westlife held a concert for their Where Dreams Come True Tour supporting their album Coast to Coast. The Hong Kong Coliseum was one of the venues for the 5th East Asian Games, hosted in Hong Kong in 2009. Media related to Hong Kong Coliseum at Wikimedia Commons Official website of Hong Kong Coliseum
