Du Yijun, a 21-year-old Fudan University student, was one of the 36 people died in the crush on New Year"s Eve on the Bund（外滩） in Shanghai.
On the night of December 31, 2014, a holiday celebration turned into a terrible tragedy. "Overcrowding（过度拥挤） and the failure of the police to control the crowds were the main reason it happened," the authorities （官方）said.
For the last three year, light shows on the Bund have been successfully held for New Year"s Eve celebrations, but this year the light show was canceled and there fewer police on hand. But the crowds came anyway. About 300,000 people were on the Bund by 8:00 that evening and more kept arriving until people suddenly became noisy and angry around 11:30. Some people fell on the stairs and were stepped heavily on and died.
In Shanghai, the authorities have reacted（作出反应） to the Bund tragedy by canceling big events. But this isn"t really necessary. Better planning and better crowd control can make sure the celebrations are safe.
However, if you"re going to a place where there will be a big cr owd, you should take notice of where the exits（出口） are, and if there are too many people, move away from the center of the crowd. And most importantly, if the crowd seems too big and makes you feel uncomfortable, just leave. No celebration is worth losing your life over.

In 2011, when British photographer David J. Slater was visiting a park in Indonesia, his camera was taken away by a group of black monkeys. The result was hundreds of monkey selfies (自拍照). The best ones show a monkey smiling toothily for the camera. 76
Nobody knew they would create a copyright（版权） battle three years later.
Last month, a website put the monkey selfies online under a collection of free photos without Slater"s permission（允许）. 77
However, the website refused to do so. They said that according to US copyright law, whoever pushes the button on the camera owns the copyright to the photo. 78
They said, "US copyright law says that works that come from a non-human source can"t ask for copyright, that means monkeys don"t own copyright."
79 He said he bought the cameras; he spent a lot of money traveling to Indonesia; and it was his carelessness that allowed the monkeys to take his cameras away. All these have made him own the pictures, no matter who pushed the button. In a sense, the monkeys helped him take the photos, Slater said.

Do you know what are the world"s tallest animals? How do they sleep and drink?
You may think it"s difficult for them to sleep, but they have no such problems because giraffes don"t often stop for a snooze. As they are so tall---males can grow up to 18 feet, giraffes actually have the shortest sleep requirement of mammals, with an average of half an hour a day. When they sleep, they seldom lie down and sleep for minutes at a time, since it"s difficult for them to get up again and it"s dangerous in the wild. But the giraffe in the zoo sleeps around 4.6 hours per day, mostly at night. It usually sleeps lying down.
