Today I'm going to try combining two things I often tweet about: tech and Cantonese. So, let's talk about parsing.

I'm currently studying Cantonese at #CUHK in #HongKong.
In English I would say: "My name is Nathan." The written representation maps 1:1 with the words spoken. For bonus points, the characters in each word themselves contain information about how they are pronounced. Put differently, serialization and deserialization are symmetric.
In Cantonese, using the Yale romanization, I would say out loud to somebody, "Ngóh ge méng haih Nathan." One possible written serialization of that is: "我嘅名係Nathan." Wait, what? One *possible* serialization!?

A research of 400 specimens from 14 #covid19 patients by #CUHK found that 3 of the 14 patients still had virus in their stool samples after their respiratory samples are all clear. The amount of virus in stool samples is comparable to those in deep throat saliva. Image
More from this research.
At this stage, CUHK's researchers have NOT tested whether the virus in the stool samples are dead fragments or living virus. if they are living virus or can breed living virus, they are infectious.
The researchers are suggesting to add stool sample test as a supplementary test to deep throat saliva test for patients who do not have sputum, for 1) among the samples examined, saliva samples had a 42% false negative rate and 2) stool samples are easier to collect.

4 masked intruders dressed in black set a fire at the printing press of the #HongKong edition of @EpochTimes in the early hours of Nov. 19, marking the 4th attack to the facility since its opening more than a decade ago. (Thread 👇)…
The incident took place around 3:40AM, as the staff there were about to send off newly printed newspapers to the stands.

Moments after staff opened the factory door, 4 masked men walked into the facility and pointed batons towards the workers, shouting: “all of you don’t move!”
Surveillance footage shows 2 of the men dressed in all black carrying batons, while one of them holds newspapers, and another carries two containers containing a flammable liquid, which he poured onto the factory machines and newspapers.

Was an den Universitäten in #Hongkong gerade passiert, ist eine neue Stufe dieser Bewegung. Punkto Organisationsgrad und wohl vor allem punkto Militanz. Ein #Thread.
Seit gestern verschanzen sich Tausende Studierende in ihren Unis. Sie bauen Barrikaden, Fallen, Wachtürme – und sie bewaffnen sich.
Mit Pfeilbögen, meterhohen Feuer-Katapulten und tausenden Molotowcocktails. Für letztere haben die Studierenden regelrechte Produktionsstätten errichtet.

Audrey Eu SC, on behalf of #CUHK student union chief Jacky So seeking injunction to ban police entry, argues there’s no rioting WITHIN Uni precinct; there’s only evidence that #HongKongPolice entered the campus & students responded to “an invasion of their home & try to defend”
Eu: we’re not asking the court to condone violence & the legal conducts of rioters, nor trying to tie the police’s hands. We’re asking #HongKongPolice have to enforce the law in accordance to the law, no more no less #CUHK #HongKongProtests
Eu: there should only be 3 conditions for police to enter #CUHK, a private premise. 1) with a search warrant, 2) at the invitation of the owner, 3) section 50(4) of the #HongKongPolice Force Ordinance, which reads as below:

Link to the law:
