This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005.

The calligraphy is also mentioned in the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005 at Stanford University.
Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.

If your house is powered off

We used to have this topic to write the article in the exam, or discuss the important of the electricity. In our childhood, sometimes we still had power cut arranged by the govenment or the electricity company, so we have prepared the oil lights or candles, or portable flashlights in the home. But in recent 20 years, power cut issues seldom happen, we take lightness for granted, power-on the home electronic appliance as of-course, drink the water from the pipes without saying. When we heard the stories or read the articles about electricity supply lacking in India, we thought it's far far away.

In this winter, many of the places including big cities and small towns, countries, realized that the power are transferred by the high-tension cables.

The design of the the cables only consider the 15 cm snow and ice coverage, but this winter, some places have the ice covered more than 50 cm, which does not happen for 50 or 100 years.

The snow and the Powered-off cause the traffic jams and productive problem, many travellers have to be detained in the station or on the way, many goods are not able to be delivered on time, the water companies also cant run.
Shocked by the photos of the ices and the heads in the Guangzhou station. People need the food to eat, need the water to drink, need some devices for getting warm. God bless them.

Almost 10 days past from the last heavy snow, the CCTV is still reporting that the repairing progress of the electricity, A piece of news reported: 2000,000 candles was sent to Hunan province for the lights by the air forces. There're more than 4 provinces like Hunan. The difficulties to solve the problems and recover the normal daily routine is much harder than expected.



It's a big surprise that Stephen Chow will make such science fiction movie. Holly molly, we have a cute one called CJ7 like R2, 3PO now, though it's only good at creating s-h-i-t.

This movie was started in August of 2006, it took 3 years to complete.
Yangtze River is the longest river in China and the third longest river in the world. It is unlikely that "Yangtze River 7" is related to the river and it might be the name of a spacecraft, inspired by China's Shenzhou spacecrafts.
It's said that CJ7 is in memory of Chow's pat who ever play supporting role in the movie , and the movie is inspired by the Chow's witness of UFO, the movie took place in Ningbo city, where Chow's father ever lived. Chow said it's his dream to make a movie with such topic.

Take a look at it in youtube:

Here is quotes from Stephen Chow, which can be the foot notes of this movie.
"I used to cry when I watched Chaplin's films. It was from him that I learned about the role of the underdog. And because I'm also from a poor family, this kind of thing moved me and I found that it also worked for the audience because most of them are like me - ordinary guys."

Stephen Chow is a respectable actor and director.
