The answer: they are all in these pages and they are sources of pride for CUHK. How is a language that no one speaks today a source of pride? Well, we take pride in that classical Latin is offered here at CUHK. The teacher, Father Louis Ha, tells us how a training in Latin sharpens the mind and upgrades the prose. Even Chinese writers can benefit from a little Latin. How does bionanotechnology bring pride? The answer is found in the Croucher Innovation Award 2016 received by Prof. Jonathan Choi for his ground-breaking bionanotechnology research. He is joined by Prof. Rossa Chiu and Prof. Jun Yu, who received Croucher senior research fellowships for their impactful work in medical research, and they deserve our prideful congratulations! Drama is delightful to watch, but how does it bring pride? Mr. Ko Tin-lung ( right photo ) , a fine graduate of CUHK and now champion of Theatre-in-Education, talks to ‘Viva Voce’ about why theatrical experience is important in making sense of oneself and the world. Isn’t that, in short, education? Last but not least, how do our websites make us proud? The answer is obvious—they are accessed and liked. CUHK websites and apps have received 16 accessibility awards this year alone, bringing the total to 26 in four years and affirming that our digital façades and platforms are darlings among local internet and mobile users. 4 • 5 • 2016 Photo by Keith Hiro 人生如戲 (頁8) The Drama of Life ( p. 8 )
