Asian Collectors Give Christie's a High-Yield Night

By CAROL VOGEL

In a nearly three-hour auction of postwar and contemporary art on Tuesday night, Christie's managed to sell nearly $745 million worth of blue-chip paintings and sculptures.



新德里方面的高级原子能官员表示,印度已建成20万吨当量的核武器。他们称,国际社会将视之为一种“恰当的战略威慑”。高于5万吨当量的核武器被认为是高当量武器。印度核能力的提高,使其相对于同样拥有核武器的宿敌巴基斯坦,获得了很大的优势。


New Delhi's senior atomic officials said India has built weapons with yields of up to 200 kilotons, which they said would be considered a “proper strategic deterrent” by the global community. A nuclear weapon above 50 kilotons is considered high yield. India's enhanced capability gives it a considerable edge over Pakistan, its nuclear-armed arch-rival.
爆炸當量又稱「黃色炸藥爆炸當量」,是指炸藥的爆炸造成的威力,相當於多少質量單位的黃色炸藥(TNT)爆炸所造成的威力相同。質量單位通常以千克(kg.)或(t.)來計量,而在核武器的威力衡量上則通常用「萬噸」或「兆噸」。由於黃色炸藥每單位質量所産生的爆炸程度基本相同,所以以該種炸藥作為爆炸當量的參考系。
如果某種武器表明爆炸當量為 20,000 噸,意思就是說該種武器所産生的威力與 20,000 噸黃色炸藥爆炸産生的威力相同。通常來說,核子武器的爆炸當量都在 10,000 噸以上。 於1945 年8月 6日,投於日本廣島核彈大約等於 20,000 噸的黃色炸藥,現代的核子武器大約都相當於 100,000 噸到 20,000,000 噸黃色炸藥,曾試爆過最大的核彈是俄國50,000,000 噸的沙皇炸彈


明察秋毫,不見輿薪

QUOTATION OF THE DAY
"Americans are saying that with their planes they can see an egg 18 kilometers away, so why can’t they see the Taliban?"
ABDULLAH WASAY, an Afghan pharmacist.



目光敏銳,觀察入微,可看見秋天鳥獸新長的毫毛。孟子˙梁惠王上:「明足以察秋毫之末,而不見輿薪。」比喻能洞察一切,看出極細微的地方。三俠五義˙第四十二回:「不想相爺神目如電,早已明察秋毫,小人再也不敢隱瞞。」


The Royal Mint, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, has unveiled the first ever UK Gold Kilo coin, designed by Anthony Caro. It is fitting that an artist renowned for large dramatic sculpture should have been chosen to design a coin of such stature � Britain�s first kilo coin.
In his magnificent design for the coin for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Anthony Caro has remained true to his sculptural ideals, creating an imposing design that it took all the skill of the Royal Mint�s hugely experienced craftsmen to embody. The coin, which represents individual endeavour at the Games, is in a sculptured relief that is far higher than any other UK coin struck by the Royal Mint, lending extra gravitas to an impressive numismatic first.
It contains one kilo of fine gold, has a low issue limit of just 60, is presented in a beautifully crafted, specially designed presentation box, accompanied by an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, personally signed by Anthony Caro. For further information, visit the Royal Mint website.

Huawei's big push into international markets is bearing fruit

Modest Bonus Year on Wall St., but Stock Could Yield
Fortunes Buffeted by lackluster profits and turmoil in the global markets, Wall Street is bracing for one of the worst bonus seasons in recent memory. But in the alchemy of high finance, bankers are hoping to turn the slump to their advantage.



State schools, too, are reporting a tough admissions season, with acceptance rates down at the University of Texas and the University of North Carolina, among others.
On the positive side for some students this season, schools are having a hard time predicting their all-important "yields" -- the percentage of students admitted who will actually attend. And high-school counselors are hoping that ambiguity will result in more acceptances for students who are on waiting lists -- a strategy schools use to reach enrollment targets.
