Amazing Argentina

南美洲之旅 ── 驚艷阿根廷

Argentina is a large South American country with a lot of variety regarding its history, people, culture, and geography. The Spanish first landed there in 1502, with Spain taking control of it and sending people there about a decade later. Later, Argentinians fought a war against Spain between 1810 and 1818, resulting in Argentina’s independence. However, not long after that, the country went through a long civil war that lasted until 1861. This was followed by a period of rapid population and economic growth. In fact, Argentina was one of the 15 richest countries in the world at one time.
Today, Argentina is a democratic country known for its cultural attractions. An example of this is the tango, which is both a style of music and a type of dance. In addition, the capital, Buenos Aires, is famous as a center for theater. The country has some amazing places to visit as well, including Iguazu National Park and Patagonia.

Wild Trampoline Attraction Brings People Back to Old Mine


Opened in 2014, an attraction called Bounce Below offers amusement for visitors, who can bounce around on three levels of trampolines. For a little more than NT$1,000, people are allowed to spend an hour jumping around on the trampolines. They can also travel down tubes that connect the trampolines in a manner somewhat similar to using the slides at a water park. The tallest trampoline is 55 meters above the bottom of a cavern. Flashing LED lights add to the enjoyment and decorate the old slate mine in a variety of colors. Visitors who have tried it describe Bounce Below as a great, but tiring experience. It is interesting to wonder what those who worked in the mine in Victorian England would have thought of Bounce Below.

Turing’s Code-Breaking Machine Wasn’t Really Named ‘Christopher’

One of the more touching things in Imitation Game is the moment when Turing tells Joan Clarke that he’s named the computer he’s working on “Christopher” (after Turing’s first love—Joan doesn’t know that part, though). The real machine was called the Bombe (or “Victory”). “That was my invention,” Moore says. The idea is based on the belief held by Turing’s biographer Hodges and many other historians that Turing’s fascination with computers and artificial intelligence came from their friendship, which ended early when Morcom died at age 18 from tuberculosis. “Turing wrote extensively about whether or not this technology could be used to keep a person’s mind alive,” Moore says “I think his entire lifelong pursuit of artificial intelligence was all about bringing Christopher back. Naming the machine Christopher was a dramatic way for us to show that very real lifelong obsession.”

SCREENWRITER GRAHAM MOORE is a self-described Alan Turing obsessive: He went to space camp andcomputer programming camp as a teenager, so the famed mathematician loomed large, “like a campfire legend or something.” Turing’s life ultimately proved so inspirational to Moore that bringing his story to the big screen became a life goal.

“Once I became a writer I would go to my agents once a year and say, ‘Hey, there’s this movie I really want to write about a gay English mathematician who commits suicide after the Second World War,'” Moore remembers. “And they were like, ‘That’s a big Hollywood movie!’ … No, they did not say that at all. They were like, ‘Please don’t ever write that; no one will ever finance that movie.'”
