Mr Vincent Fung, Principal Assistant Secretary for Home Affairs said, "In this special day on celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Youth Square is glad to be supported by various organisations, and co-organise this event with Shenzhen Youth Federation to create an opportunity for youth from Hong Kong and Shenzhen to interact through music. The music elites can understand each other through communications, and to create a valuable friendship through music." Two renowned choirs joint concert for the first time in Hong Kong The opening ceremony commenced on 13 May with "The Same Song" concert choir, performed by Hong Kong Diocesan Girls' School Choir and Shenzhen Senior High School Lily Girls Choir. Both groups have won numerous awards in different global choir competitions, and being the best groups in class. They are invited to perform together on stage for the first time in Hong Kong representing youth choirs in Shenzhen and Hong Kong. During the night, both groups performed their refreshing masterpiece, including classics like "Welcome the Sun", "Spark (To Music)", "Wai Saluo" and "Closer to you". Ms Grace Chiang of Diocesan Girls' School led the choir to competitions all around the world and won a lot of prizes. Ms Hu Manxue is the current conductor of Shenzhen Senior High School Lily Children's Choir. Both teachers believed that both groups are very blessed to perform on stage together for the first time in Hong Kong. This was an invaluable experience to them to learn from each other. The two teams finally sang together at the last song representing Hong Kong - "Pearl of the Orient". "The Golden Age" Orchestra Performance on 14 May was performed by Diocesan Girls' School Symphony Orchestra and Shenzhen Experimental School Symphony Orchestra. Mr Gian Paolo Peloso (Italy), Conductor special invited by Musicus Society also led the orchestra to perform "Antonin Dvorak: Carnival Overture". Before the show began, Mrs Lau Kun Lai-kuen, Stella, JP, Principal of Diocesan Girls' School and Ms Dorothy Hui, Diocesan Girls' School Orchestra exchanged souvenirs with Ms Long Ping, Principal of Shenzhen Experimental School and Mr Luo Zhenhua, Conductor of Shenzhen Experimental School Symphony Orchestra on behalf of Hong Kong and Shenzhen respectively.

Research jointly led by HKBU and HKUST decoding the first deep-sea mussel genome published in Nature Ecology & Evolution A joint research led by Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has assembled the 1.64 gigabytes genome of a deep-sea mussel, which is roughly equivalent to 50% of the size of human genome. This is the first decoded genome among all deep-sea macrobenthic animals, revealing a complete set of DNA. The discovery gives wider insights into future research on the mechanisms of symbiosis in other marine organisms such as giant tubeworms and giant clams. The research team, led by HKUST's Chair Professor of Division of Life Science Professor Pei-Yuan Qian and HKBU's Associate Professor of Biology Dr Jian-Wen Qiu, have published the research findings in the prestigious international academic journal Nature Ecology & Evolution in early April. The team used a specimen collected in 2013 during Dr Qiu's participation in China's manned submersible Jiaolong expedition in the South China Sea for research. Deep-sea organisms including mussels thrive in extreme environments of hydrothermal vents and cold seeps which are characterised by high hydrostatic pressure, lack of photosynthesis-derived food, variable temperatures and high concentrations of toxic substances. Despite their ability to survive under stressful conditions, a lack of genomic resources has hindered the understanding of their molecular mechanisms of adaptation. The study sequenced the genome of the deep-sea mussel Bathymodiolus platifrons as well as its shallow-water relative Modiolus philippinarum collected from a local softshore in Tingkok for comparison of genomic features. Through phylogenetic analysis, the research team discovered that modern deep-sea mussels are the descendants of shallow-water mussels, and their ancestors migrated to the deep sea approximately 110 million years ago, providing evidence to support a hypothesis that their ancestors survived through an extinction event during the global anoxia period associated with the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum which occurred around 57 million years ago. Genome comparison revealed that the great expansion of several gene families in the deep-sea mussel may be related to its adaptation to the deep sea. For instance, the expansion of the "heat shock protein 70 family", a family of proteins that are produced by a cell in response to exposure to stressful conditions, may help the mussel stabilise protein structures. The expansion of the "ABC transporters family", the unit of the transport system, may enhance the mussel's ability to move toxic chemicals outside its gill epithelial cells. The expansion of gene families related to immune recognition, endocytosis and caspase-mediated apoptosis indicates the mussel's adaptation to the presence of chemoautotrophic endosymbionts in its gills. An additional proteomic analysis of the deep-sea mussel gill reveals nutritional and energetic dependency of the mussel on its methanotrophic symbionts. Professor Qian said, "The study has provided genomic resources for understanding how the deep-sea mussel has adapted to the abiotic stresses and lack of photosynthesis-derived food in the deep-sea chemosynthetic environment. The general mechanisms of symbiosis revealed in the study are of relevance to other symbiotic organisms such as deep-sea tubeworms and giant clams." Dr Qiu said, "The genomic resources will facilitate various studies, including genetic connectivity among deep-sea populations, which is relevant to the establishment of deep-sea marine reserves." The study was supported by the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences of China, HKUST, HKBU, Scientific and Technical Innovation Council of Shenzhen, and Guangdong Natural Science Foundation. Other main collaborators are HKUST post-doctoral fellows Dr Jin Sun and Dr Weipeng Zhang, Dr Jerome Hui of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and his team members Wenyan Nong and Fiona Ka Man Cheung, Dr Runsheng Li of Hong Kong Baptist University, Dr Yu Zhang of Shenzhen University, Dr Zhang Yang of The South China Sea Institute of Oceanography, and Christopher Fields of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The invention relates to the technical field of data hiding, in particular to a data hiding method and a data hiding system. An image is used as a data carrier; after secret data is converted into a bit sequence by a sending end, the values of each bit in the bit sequence are hidden in the image; the image hidden with the secret data is obtained and is sent to a receiving end; and the receiving end can extract the hidden secret data from the image according to a corresponding secret key. During data hiding, each square image block can hide two-bit data through inverse number odd-even properties of a pixel gray value sequence of two diagonal lines of each square image block, so that the volume of data hidden in the image is twice of the number of the image blocks split by the image.
