Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

Shows the Oviposition Trap (Ovitrap) designed by the Hong Kong government to gauge the severity of mosquito infestation in the community. But Paul Yip Siu-fai (Senior Lecturer, Department of Statistics, University of Hong Kong) and others question the government's wisdom in using the misleading information produced by this unscientific device as a basis for determining the allocation of the $10 million mosquito emergency fund. Introduces a rope-skipping instructor who teaches the exercise full-time and a young pen-spinning master who passes his skill to others via his own website.
