Why a long night’s sleep may be bad for you 為什麼晚上睡太久可能對你不好

We all know that getting too little sleep is bad. You feel tired, you may be irritable, and it can contribute to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, doctors say. But too much sleep? You don’t often hear people complaining about it.

我們都知道睡太少不好。醫生說,你會覺得累,可能易怒,還可能導致過胖、高血壓、糖尿病和心臟病。但要是睡太多呢?你不常聽到有人這樣抱怨。

HG WellsThe Father of Science Fiction

科幻小說之父-赫伯特˙喬治˙威爾斯

HG Wells was a writer known as the father of science fiction. He was born Herbert George Wells in Bromley, England, in 1866. He grew up in a fairly ordinary English household with two brothers. Wells was in poor health as a child, and he nearly died when he was seven. As he recovered in bed, Wells discovered a love for reading. He wanted to be a writer more than anything else.
Wells did not begin his career as a writer, however. His family had run out of money, and he had to work as an assistant to a goods vendor. He hated the job, and eventually he quit. He became a teacher instead, and then studied at the Normal School of Science. He published his first short story when he was at university. This story was about time travel, which would also be his first big success.

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

古老礦坑的重生彈跳樂趣多

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.
