Ursa Major (/ˈɜːrsə ˈmeɪdʒər/; also known as the Great Bear; Chòm sao Đại Hùng) is a constellation in the northern celestial hemisphere. One of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy (second century AD), it remains one of the 88 modern constellations. It can be visible throughout the year in most of the northern hemisphere. Its name, Latin for “the greater (or larger) she-bear”, stands as a reference to and in direct contrast with Ursa Minor, “the lesser she-bear”, with which it is frequently associated in mythology and amateur astronomy. The constellation’s most recognizable asterism, a group of seven relatively bright stars commonly known as the “Big Dipper“, “the Wagon” or “the Plough” (among others), both mimics the shape of the lesser bear (the “Little Dipper”) and is commonly used as a navigational pointer towards the current northern pole star, Polaris in Ursa Minor. The Big Dipper and the constellation as a whole have mythological significance in numerous world cultures, usually as a symbol of the north.
The third largest constellation in the sky, Ursa Major is home to many deep-sky objects including seven Messier objects, four other NGC objects and I Zwicky 18, which is potentially the youngest-known galaxy in the visible universe.
P.’to.le.my /ˈtɑːləmi/ (?AD100-AD170) a Greek astronomer and mathematician who lived and worked in Egypt. He studied the stars, and believed that the Earth was at the centre of the universe, and that the stars, the sun, and the planets all travelled in circles around the Earth. This idea is known as the Ptolemaic System /ˌtɒl əˈmeɪ ɪk/ , and it was generally believed to be true until Nicholas copernicus /ˈnɪkələs//kəʊˈpɜːrnɪkəs/ proved that it was wrong at the beginning of the 16th century.

Chơi hụi: A tontine (English pronunciation: /tɒntin/) is an investment plan for raising capital, devised in the 17th century and relatively widespread in the 18th and 19th centuries. It combines features of a group annuityand a lottery. Each subscriber pays an agreed sum into the fund, and thereafter receives an annuity. As members die, their shares devolve to the other participants, and so the value of each annuity increases. On the death of the last member, the scheme is wound up.

THANG CUỐN: An ‘escalator /ˈeskəleɪtər/ is a vertical transportation device in the form of a moving staircase – a conveyor which carries people between floors of a building. It consists of an motor-driven chain of individually linked steps. These steps are guided on either side by a pair of tracks which force them to remain horizontal.
Escalators are used around the world in places where elevators would be impractical. Principal areas of usage include department stores, shopping malls, airports, transit systems(railway/railroad stations), convention centers, hotels, arenas, stadiums, and public buildings.
Escalators have the capacity to move a large number of people, and they can be placed in the same physical space as a staircase. They have no waiting interval (except during very heavy traffic), they can be used to guide people toward main exits or special exhibits, and they may be weatherproofed for outdoor use. A non-functioning escalator can function as a normal staircase, whereas many other conveyances become useless when they break down.
