The Rise and Fall of the Quants

31st Jul 2009 - 10:28pm News Clips
The best career for Engineering, Math and Physics Ph.D. are in the wall street. Maybe studying hard science would become back in fashion again with the potential reward. It is just odd that those who want to earn quick money in finance have the…

Fireball

31st Jul 2009 - 12:55pm 動漫
Fireball這齣動畫風格十分獨特﹐走實驗性小品的另類路線。日本東映動畫與迪士尼攜手製作﹐總共十三集﹐每集只有短短數分鐘的全電腦CG動畫。這是迪士尼跳出美國本土動畫﹐邁向國際進軍日本動畫界的第一擊﹐所以這動畫有特殊意義不容有失。這動畫在網絡評論中被受稱讚﹐當然看見那個萬分可愛的白色少女機械人﹐觀眾又怎會狠心批評這動畫呢。…

令讀者失望的書展

30th Jul 2009 - 11:17am 生活隨筆
身為一個愛書之人﹐以前在新聞看到香港書展的熱鬧情況﹐有關書本的各種專題報題﹐令我一直很嚮往參加這個一年一度的盛事。我身在外國一直與書展無緣﹐今年剛好在書展期間回港﹐終於可以一償心願見識香港書展。不過書展聞名不如見面﹐親身體驗與充滿期待的想像﹐原來有很大的差誤。我太過一廂情願把書展浪漫化﹐以為書展可以休哉悠哉博覽群書﹐以為可以近距離接觸一些平事沒有機會買到的書藉﹐以為可以一睹o靚模的艷光和食免費雪榚。說穿了原來書展只不過是一個巨型跳蚤市場﹐參觀者不過是來趁熱鬧和掃平貨。…

Parkinson’s Law

This is the classic paper on work and schedule. It is a known fact that work will expands to fill up its allocated time. Somehow our management take it one step further, thinking work can also be squeezed into a unrealistically tight schedule.…

FINA Proposes Banning High-Tech Swim Suits

29th Jul 2009 - 01:48am News Clips
Maybe FINA should simply ban swim suits, everyone has to swim naked. Sport without technology innovation is a dead end. What’s so glorious about pushing the limit of human boby? No matter how fast a man can swim, he can’t be faster…

Efficiency and beyond

Is it the death of efficient market hypothesis, or are we just missing some human variables from the equations?…

The other-worldly philosophers

25th Jul 2009 - 03:52pm News Clips
The lefties always love trashing economy theories being the slave of the all evil capitalism. Maybe this article from the Economist, the stronghold from the right, would deliver debate ammo to the lefties, if they choose to misinterpret it…

Dragon Ball Evolution

25th Jul 2009 - 02:31pm 電影
龍珠是我們這一代人的成長回憶﹐還記得讀中學上課的時候﹐同學間偷偷傳閱龍珠漫畫。還有每個星期五(還是星期日﹖)晚上﹐不願睡覺等看最新一集的龍珠動畫。可惜很來鳥山鳴不爭氣﹐龍珠故事越畫越爛﹐千篇一律鬥大數值﹐不夠打就忽然變身出絕招。動畫進度更是離譜地緩慢﹐谷個元氣彈也可以谷成個月﹐不是地球還有五分鐘就未日嗎﹖結果當年的擁躉一個個離去﹐我也不知道龍珠結局最後如何。在我心目中天下武林大會的龍珠﹐才是真正的龍珠。…

機動部隊﹕同袍

25th Jul 2009 - 06:40am 電影
我很喜歡杜琪峰的PTU系列﹐沒有大明星沒有大製作﹐全靠出色的劇本好戲的演員﹐拍出緊湊迫人的張力。《PTU同袍》把舞台從半夜的尖沙咀搬到新界的荒山野嶺﹐故事從尋找失槍轉為上山搜捕省港奇兵。主要演員雖與上集相同﹐但角色與上集沒有關係。任達華和邵美琪分別飾演兩隊PTU的小隊長﹐他們的處事手法截然不同。任達華是做好自己本份的傳統好警察﹐邵美琪則為摶升職上位不惜取巧走位。林雪照舊當搞笑的肥佬警察﹐總是很倒楣遇上劫匪﹐但最後又會符碌地立大功。…

Maker’s Schedule, Manager’s Schedule

23rd Jul 2009 - 10:41pm News Clips
I am not productive if I don’t get at least half of a day of time. Manager schedule runs only hourly basis, but I doubt how much productivity are those meetings other than showing your presence. If a manager need to do some strategy thinking,…
