麥嘉慧,科學人      有記性的免疫系統   有時候我們會用「打敗仗」來形容身體被病菌入侵而病倒了,可幸是身體會在這次敗仗中獲得免疫力。即是說,痊癒後的身體並不會再被同一種病菌入侵。接種疫苗,就如為身體的免疫系統做了一次軍事演習,讓它記住針對某病菌(抗原)的防禦 ,並刺激抗體產生,從而獲得免疫力。以後若真的有病菌試圖入侵身體時,免疫系統就可以迅速作出反應,將病菌擊退。

陳婉玲 (Elaine Chan)   很多時候,災難都是突如其來,不可預計的。在沒有心理準備及防災措施下,災難一旦發生,便會驚惶失措,加劇傷害和損失。所以,我們應有備無患,即使發生突發事故,也能減低受影響的程度及損失。如你同意上述說法,並有防災的準備,為災難預早作打算,那便恭喜你,你是一個有備災意識及計劃的人,因為有所防備,相信在遇到事故時,便能更從容不迫地應對。   今年2月,美國德克薩斯州地區受暴風雪吹襲,帶來極度嚴寒的天氣,路面結冰,道路封閉,氣溫驟降導致用電量暴增,使德克薩斯等南部州份電力不勝負荷,導致共400萬民居電力中斷接近一個月,冰凍天氣亦令供水系統大受影響,總統拜登更一度宣布德克薩斯州進入「重大災難」狀態,持續的冰凍天氣更引致超過70人死亡;市民在天寒地凍的情況下,只好使用原始的方法,生火取暖,又將冰雪融為水來煮沸飲用,以渡過嚴寒。

陳婉玲 2021年2月25日   疫情已持續逾年,市民也儘量減少外出,你是否以為絕大部份的義工都暫停義務工作?   義務工作是指任何人士志願貢獻其個人時間及精神,不為任何回報,無償為改善社會或幫助有需要人士而提供的服務。根據香港超過四千間服務機構的紀錄,2019年義工服務時數共錄得超過2,264萬小時[1],這數字還未計算沒有登記義工的服務時間,以香港這個彈丸之地,數字實在驕人。 Photo by ray sangga kusuma on Unsplash
