AIDS, flash mob,


Opera is almost naive in the way it magnifies and crystallizes emotions. That is the real meaning of the ‘grand’ in grand opera. But music can go even a step further: it can render words almost unnecessary. This is the highest estate that opera can reach, where the music is so communicative that the merest general knowledge of the dramatic action is enough to give you the key to a rich enjoyment of the work.

flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.[2][3][4] Flash mobs are organized via telecommunicationssocial media, or viral emails.


First flash mob


Flash mobbing was quickly imitated outside of the United States. This picture is of "sydmob", the first flashmob held in Sydney, Australia

The first flash mobs were created in Manhattan in 2003, by Bill Wasik, senior editor of Harper's Magazine.[7][9][16] The first attempt was unsuccessful after the targeted retail store was tipped off about the plan for people to gather.[17]

12月1日是世界愛滋病日。全世界共有3,670萬人感染愛滋病毒(HIV/AIDS)。當前的目標是到2030年根除愛滋病。我們雖已有長足的進步,但是這個數字還是非常高,請與我們一起努力根除此疾病。你可以加入由美國總統愛滋病救援緊急計劃(U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief)贊助的線上快閃族表達你的支持: https://goo.gl/W72xY4。了解更多: https://goo.gl/F0R7SJ


Today (December 1) is World AIDS Day. 36.7 million people live with HIV/AIDS. The goal is to reduce that number to zero by 2030. We’ve made a lot of progress, but 36.7 million is still too high a number. You can show your support by joining an online flash mob, sponsored by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).https://goo.gl/F0R7SJ
