AN INTRODUCTION TO CHATGPT

-- This is my Linc English homework which is posted by my teacher as a recommended article on Linc's website.  --

ChatGPT is based on OpenAI and is free for use now. During the past several months, ChatGPT has gained fast popularity globally.

People can easily use prompts to talk with ChatGPT and get human-like responses. It can talk about various topics with us. For example, you can ask it to explain Quantum Computing, how to make an “HTTP request” in Javascrip, or to make a calculation of “10 plus 9”. ChatGPT can even remember previous conversations and generate corresponding information in the follow-up talk. But once a brand-new conversation is started, the information in previous conversations will be lost and can’t be restored for the new session. People can click thumbs-up and thumbs-down icons to give feedback on the answers from ChatGPT, which is a useful way to train it to become smarter.

Summary of the story of Elon Musk

Elon Musk was born on June 28, 1971, in Pretoria South Africa. He has two brothers. His father was so abusive that Musk’s childhood was full of violence and unhappiness. His mother found he was very smart and let him go to school a year early. Later he became crazy about computer games when he was 10. He then taught himself how to code and even sold a game software made by him to a PC magazine for $500 when he was only 12.
At the age of 17, Elon Musk moved from his hometown to the US to attend Pennsylvania University, graduating with dual bachelor's degrees in Economics and Physics at the age of 26. In 1995, he moved again to Silicon Valley to study energy storage technology at Stanford for a Ph.D. degree. Soon, he found the Internet industry would have huge business potential in the future, though most people thought the Internet was a fad and far away from monetization early in 1995. He then dropped out of school and started a new company, called ZIP2, with his brother.
Meanwhile, starting a business was not as easy as he previously thought. He didn’t have any money except for $100,000 worth of student debt, and he had to both work and live in a little office. Quickly he grasped a business opportunity that helped media companies convert their paper and print content into digital content. ZIP2 grew gradually and struck deals with some big clients, such as New York Times. 3.5 years later, Compaq acquired ZIP2 for $30.5 million, of which $22 million went to Musk. Suddenly, he became a multi-millionaire from a broke due.
Musk’s next goal was to transform the traditional banking industry, so he started a new company X.com, which was merged with another company and renamed as world-famous Paypal. The main feature of Paypal was that customers were able to email money to others rather than dealing with everything in cash. Because a payee would have to sign up for Paypal and automatically be recruited into the system. The more people using Paypal, the faster it would grow. With this smart way to grow exponentially, Paypal acquired a million customers in only a year. However, in October 2000, one and a half years after creating the company, Musk was unfortunately fired as CEO of Paypal. Later in 2002, EBAY purchased Paypal for $1.5 billion with Musk receiving $165 million.
As Musk became more supplicated in business, he kept thinking critically and beneficial things which would change the course of humanity. He came back to his dream of building electric cars, which was his field of study for his Ph.D. degree. In 2004, he invested $6.5 million in Tesla, a startup founded by other two persons, and became the chairman of the company. Between 2004 and 2008, Musk and his team worked relentlessly on producing their first car, the Tesla Roadster. And the car was released to the market in 2008.

Winning a Lottery



Jack won a big lottery prize of $10 million 3 years ago. He had imagined various scenarios to make a huge fortune, but winning a lottery was ranked the last in his fantasies. This was truly lady luck paid a visit. He still remembered the moment when he got the good news. He was repairing a luxury car for his customer in a 4S store. At first, he was too shocked to grasp his wrench, but then he started smiling like a fool to his colleagues.

He and his wife decided to say good riddance to their past boring life style in a flash. They both quit their jobs the next day. Then, they made a very long to-do list: Buying a luxury apartment, shopping every day, traveling around the world, having plastic surgeries, etc. It seemed that they would be in a whirlwind of activity in the following years.

追忆上海的“水”

  今天思绪突然远远飘扬到四年前因工作外派在上海小住几个月的时光,那段日子对我的人生来说略显落寞。万幸上海很多地方都有水,古人云“水即为财”,所以我经常到周边有水的地方散步。
  
  水之一

  最常光顾的一条小河是“张家浜”,是黄浦江的一个小支流。河的两侧有两米宽的步道,沿途有一些树木凉亭、微型公园,还种了各式花草。讲真,张家浜河的景色谈不上很秀美,但那毕竟是距离自己住处最近的一条河,所以一有空闲我的脚不由自主就拉着身体往那边迈开而去了。我每次都会沿着河边步道快走1个多小时,在呼吸吐纳、汗流浃背之后,身心会开阔很多。印象最深刻的是16年早春的某一天,天气乍暖还寒,我依旧在河边静静的踱步,突然几树粉嫩嫩的玉兰花闯进了我的眼帘。我驻足在这些美丽的花儿下面欣赏良久。就在那个小小的瞬间,玉兰花儿的傲然挺立以及高洁纯美,就如同润物细无声般,悄悄地熨平了我驿动的心。

天 天 快 跑(剧本及台词)

《文武北洋:风流篇》读书笔记


【立量 | 10.30 | 《文武北洋:风流篇》读书笔记】

1、北洋时期的文人地位和法律环境居然是很高的。
文人地位高不高,可以看薪资待遇。彼时北大聚集了蔡元培、陈独秀、刘半农、周作人、章士钊、李大钊等大师。陈独秀工资最高,月薪300银元,其他教授约为200多银元不等,李大钊起初是图书馆馆长,月薪100元。不的不提到的是,身为李大钊手下图书馆管理员的太祖皇帝,月薪仅为8元,8元,8元……以北洋时期的银元与目前人民币1:100折算,陈独秀月薪3万元,这在当今教授圈里算是极高的薪资了。
