Younger Now - Miley Cyrus
Written by：Miley Cyrus/Oren Yoel
Feels like I just woke up
Like all this time I've been asleep
Even though it's not who I am
I'm not afraid of who I used to be
No one stays the same oh oh
You know what goes up must come down oh oh
Change is a thing you can count on oh oh
I feel so much younger now oh oh
Feels like I've been living in a dream
But never make it to the end
My eyes open when they feel the light
It's always right before I'm about to scream
What goes up must come down
What goes up must come down yeah
You know what goes comes back around oh oh
Usain Bolt of Jamaica getures at the finish line of 100m on Day 10 of the 2017 IAAF World Championships at London Stadium in London, Britain, on Aug. 13, 2017. (Xinhua/Luo Huanhuan)
LONDON, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- Iconic Usain Bolt hopes the younger generation can receive a message from his legendary experience -- anything is possible if one works hard.
Retiring Jamaican "lightning" Bolt put on one last appearance on Sunday, the final day of the London World Championships as the 100m and 200m world record holder went on a lap of honor in a specially arranged farewell ceremony in front of the sell-out spectators.
The 11-time world champion and 8-time Olympic gold medalist made a final signature arrow-shooting stance and then left the track for good.
"I've proven that by working hard, anything is possible. For me, I was sitting down today and doing an interview. My motto is anything is possible," said the 30-year-old.
"It shows that everyone should continue trying. I personally feel this is a good message to send to youngsters to push on. If I can leave that to the younger generation, then that's a good legacy to leave," Bolt told a packed news conference.
The end of Bolt's career was far from perfect, a bronze in the 100m and he didn't make the finish line of his last race, the 4x100m relay as he had to limp off the track with injury.
"One championship doesn't change what I've done. After losing the 100m someone said to me, 'Muhamnmed Ali lost his last fight so don't be too stressed.' I have shown my credentials throughout my career so losing my last race isn't going to change what I've done in my sport," said Bolt.
Bolt said right now he had no plan for the future and just wanted to do things he was previously couldn't as an athlete, such as "have a party and have a drink".
But no matter what he will do in the future, Bolt said he would not return to run again.
"I have seen too many people retire and come back and just make it worse, shame themselves. So I personally won't. I won't be those stars to come back," he said.
After the lap of honor, Bolt received a framed part of the London track from London mayor Sadiq Khan and Sebastian Coe, head of the ruling body IAAF, who often speaks highly of the legendary runner.
"As I said earlier, what we are going to miss Usain Bolt isn't just the three Olympic Games, the clutch of world records or medals. He is an athlete with an opinion and view. He fills the room and interests you guys," said Coe before the final session on Sunday. "We need more athletes with accessibility instead of looking nervously at agents and handlers."
Bolt's fellow athletes also paid tribute to him.
"He has created so many legends on the track and stays a legend in my heart. I don't believe anyone can surpass him," said Chinese ace sprinter Su Bingtian who was the first Asian man to qualify for the 100m world championships final in 2015.
"Usain Bolt's name will always live on," said Bolt's relay team-member Omar McLeod.
Long-time rival Justin Gatlin, who grabbed the 100m gold medal from Bolt in London, was convinced he would return.
"You can't let this championships define what he's done in the past. He has done amazing things. He's still the man," the 35-year-old said.
"I'm going to win my million dollars. He is coming back in a couple of years. He'll be ready; he has a passion for the sport. He loves the fans and they love him. He loves the sport too much to walk away. He's a showman."
HONG KONG, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Young gay men are now becoming the majority of HIV virus carriers, a latest study by Hong Kong's Center for Health Protection has revealed.
Dr. Wong Ka-hing of the center said that unlike before, those aged between 20 and 29 now make up the majority of the group. " Some were below 20 years," he said.
The number of new HIV cases recorded in the first half of the year hit a record high of 352. That represents a 16-percent rise from the same period last year. Most of the cases involved men who had sex with men.
The total number of HIV virus infection cases recorded in Hong Kong since 1984 has reached 7,354, according to the center.

SHENYANG, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- It has been eight years since Yue Dejian went to see a movie in the cinema.
The 68-year-old Beijing resident says he stopped going because he couldn't relate to what was being portrayed.
"I remember watching the American film 'On the Golden Pond' more than 30 years ago, which impressed me with the topic of generation gap," he says.
"But these days it is so hard to find similar quality films dealing with old age issues in Chinese cinemas."
In China, movies featuring themes of love, youth and fantasy are luring young audiences, but motion pictures depicting the stories of the aged are under a market spell.
In 2013, the domestic film "Full Circle", featuring famous Chinese actress Siqin Gaowa, was chosen as the opening film of the Chinese Film Festival in Belgium. The project, which depicts the journey for happiness among a group of elderly from a nursing home, went on to pick up an award at the 20th Beijing Student Film Festival. But it was a commercial disappointment in China, reaching a mere 3.5 million yuan (559,600 U.S. dollars) at the box office.
Even the critically acclaimed film "A Simple Life", which touches on the issue of aging, was a moderate box office success, grossing 62 million yuan on the Chinese mainland. The film features Hong Kong movie superstars Andy Lau and Deanie Ip, and was a big winner at the 68th Venice Film Festival.
The Chinese population is graying, with about 200 million people aged 60 and over. The number accounts for around 14 percent of the total population and is expected to surge to 400 million by 2050, creating huge market potential for film releases in the category. But movies centering on the graying life are currently watered down, said Zhang Sining, head of Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences.
"Films for the aged usually carry a restrained tune and are weaker in dramatic impact, which makes it difficult for them to be artistic while becoming a blockbuster at the same time," said the researcher.
Domestic film-makers are now swarming to cater to the young demographic, which make up the majority of current movie-goers. According to official statistics, 87 percent of those enjoying the cinema in the past two years were aged between 19 and 40, with half of them born in the 1980s and 1990s.
To reverse the trend, Zhang said that films for the elderly do not necessarily have to be "dull" and "slow". He said that "young" and "cool" elements can also be incorporated to help such projects appeal to a bigger audience.
At least one such film is bucking the trend at the moment. Earlier last month, the film "Miss Granny", starring seasoned Taiwan actress Kuei Ya-lei and renowned young actor Bolin Chen, debuted on the Chinese mainland, grossing a staggering 350 million yuan in the box office by the end of January, edging out its Hollywood competitors "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" and "Seventh Son".
The chart-topper details the story of a sarcastic 70-year-old woman striving to adapt to a brand-new life after being miraculously transformed into a 20-year-old girl.
"We tell the story of an old woman from a young angle by using big stars and adding the elements of love, fantasy and family relations, which everyone can relate to," said the film's producer.
The film is such a big hit that it has been viewed by 8.6 million people in the Republic of Korea, with many young people bringing their parents to cinemas to experience the life of the protagonist.
"I think it's a good start," Zhang said, "it means that even films discussing old age can be approached in a different way."
