1. Escapism. The Great Recession fills our lives with endless drudgery, and this film is the grandest escapist fantasy out there.
  2. Corporate tie-ins. Fox masterminded a multi-faceted marketing strategy involving Coke Zero, LG, McDonald"s, Panasonic, and Mattel.
  3. Movies are making more in general. The main reason for this revenue swell is studios" improved ability to sell films to audiences around the globe.
  4. Conservative backlash. The Weekly Standard may have done Avatar a favor by calling it "anti-American" and "anti-human"—all PR is good PR, after all.
  5. Fox"s Internet savvy. The studio deftly responded to initial disappointment over the trailer by releasing a steady stream of online content to keep the conversation going.

  四、Iqbal Masih
  Iqbal Masih was a Pakistani boy who was sold to a carpet industry as a child slave at the age of 4 for the equivalent of $12. Iqbal was held by a string to a carpet loom in a small town called Muridke near Lahore. He was made to work twelve hours per day. Due to long hours of hard work and insufficient food and care, Iqbal was undersized. At twelve years of age, Iqbal was the size of a six-year old boy. At the age of 10, he escaped the brutal slavery and later joined a Bonded Labor Liberation Front of Pakistan to help stop child labour around the world, and Iqbal helped over 3,000 Pakistani children that were in bonded labour, escape to freedom. Iqbal gave talks about child labour all around the world.
  He was murdered on Easter Sunday 1995. It is assumed by many that he was assassinated by members of the “Carpet Mafia” because of the publicity he brought towards the child labour industry. Some locals were accused of the crime, however.
  In 1994, Iqbal was awarded the Reebok Human Rights Award. In 2000, when The World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child was formed, he was posthumously awarded this prize as one of the first laureates.
  五、Nkosi Johnson
  Nkosi, born Xolani Nkosi, was born to Nonthlanthla Daphne Nkosi in a township east of Johannesburg in 1989. He never knew his father. Nkosi was HIV-positive from birth, and was legally adopted by Gail Johnson, a Johannesburg Public Relations practitioner, when his own mother, debilitated by the disease, was no longer able to care for him. The young Nkosi Johnson first came to public attention in 1997, when a primary school in the Johannesburg suburb of Melville refused to accept him as a pupil because of his HIV-positive status. The incident caused a furor at the highest political level—South Africa’s Constitution forbids discrimination on the grounds of medical status—and the school later reversed its decision.
  Nkosi was the keynote speaker at the 13th International AIDS Conference, where he encouraged AIDS victims to be open about the disease and to seek equal treatment. Nkosi finished his speech with the words.
  "Care for us and accept us-we are all human beings. We are normal. We have hands. We have feet. We can walk, we can talk, we have needs just like everyone else-don"t be afraid of us-we are all the same!"
  Nelson Mandela referred to Nkosi as an “icon of the struggle for life.” He was ranked fifth amongst SABC"s Great South Africans. At the time of his death, he was the longest-surviving HIV-positive born child.
  Together with his foster mother, Nkosi founded a refuge for HIV positive mothers and their children, Nkosi’s Haven, in Johannesburg. In November 2005, Gail represented Nkosi when he posthumously received the International Children’s Peace Prize from the hands of Mikhail Gorbachev. Nkosi’s Haven received the US $100,000 prize money from the KidsRights Foundation as well as a statuette which has been named the Nkosi in Nkosi Johnson’s honour. Nkosi’s life is the subject of the book We Are All the Same by Jim Wooten.

  He Opened My Mind
  He sat on the lawn, a hard cardboard lying before him, his dog squatting beside him. On the cardboard it wrote, "I"m in trouble, feeling very hungry and begging for your help."
  I was a woman who was easily moved when I saw someone need help. For my peculiarity, my husband both loved and hated. I pulled over our van, watching the man and his dog from therearview mirror. He was still very young, perhaps only 40 years old. He wrapped his head with a large handkerchief, just like a motorcyclist or a pirate. He was dirty with a scraggly beard. All he had was only a small parcel. No one stopped for him. I saw other drivers only see him once and immediately looked away.
  It was hot outside. From the man"s deep blue eyes, I saw his frustration, boredom and exhaustion, sweat streaming down his face.
  I reached into my wallet and produced a banknote of 10 dollars. My 12-year-old son Nick immediately knew what I was going to do. "Can I bring it to him, Mom?"
  "Be careful, dear," I warned him as I handed the money to him. From the rearview mirror I watched him running quickly to the man and gave him the money with a shy smile. I saw the man was shocked to stand up, take the money and put it into his pocket. "Great," I thought, "at least he can eat a warm dinner tonight." I felt satisfied and proud. Now I would go for my business.
  When returning to the car, Nick looked at me with sad and pleading eyes, "Mommy, his dog looks so hot. The man is really good." I thought I had to do something else.
  "Go back to tell him waiting there for a while until we come back in 15 minutes," I told Nick. He jumped off the car and ran to tell that stranger. Then, we drove to the nearest store and carefully chose gifts. "The things cannot be too heavy," I explained to the kids, "they must be the ones that he can carry." We finally bought something, a bag of dog food and two bottles of water as well as some fast food for the man.
  We quickly went back and found he was still there waiting for us. No one stopped for him yet. With trembling hands, I grabbed the shopping bags and moved out of the car, followed my four children, each of them with a gift. When we were walking towards him, I felt a flash of fear thrilling through my mind, hoping that he was not a serial killer, or any other dangerous man. I looked into his eyes and saw he was trying to hold back his tears like a small boy.
  I told him that I hoped these things were not too heavy for him, and showed him all the things we bought. When I took out the plate for water, he snatched it from my hand, as if it was made of gold. He told me before that he had no way to give his dog water. He put it down carefully, poured the bottle of water into it, stood up and looked straight into my eyes. His eyes were so blue, so nervous; when he said, "Madam, I don"t know what to say," my eyes brimmed over with tears. Then, he held his head wrapped with a large handkerchief in both hands and broke into tears.

  There was once a king of Scotland whose name was Robert Bruce. He had need to be both brave and wise, for the times in which he lived were wild and rude. The King of England was at war with him, and had led a great army into Scotland to drive him out of the land.
  Battle after battle had been fought. Six times had Bruce led his brave little army against his foes1; and six times had his men been beaten, and driven into flight. At last his army was scattered2, and he was forced to hide himself in the woods and in lonely places among the mountains.
  One rainy day, Bruce lay on the ground under a rude shed3 , listening to the sweet patter4 of the drops on the roof above him. He was tired and sick at heart, and ready to give up all hope. It seemed to him that there was no use for him to try to do anything more.
  As he lay thinking, he saw a spider over his head, making ready to weave5 her web. He watched her as she toiled6 slowly and with great care. Six times she tried to throw her frail7 thread from one beam to another, and six times it fell short.
  "Poor thing!" said Bruce: "you, too, know what it is to fail."
  But the spider did not lose hope with the sixth failure. With still more care, she made ready to try for the seventh time. Bruce almost forgot his own troubles as he watched her swing8 herself out upon the slender9 line. Would she fail again? No! A little while, the thread was carried safely to the beam, and fastened there.
  "I, too, should have tried again. I will try a seventh time!" cried Bruce.
  He arose and called his men together. He told them of his plans, and sent them out with messages of cheer to his disheartened people. Soon there was anarmy of brave Scotchmen around him. Another battle was fought, and the King of England was glad to go back into his own country.
  I have heard it said, that, after that day, no one by the name of Bruce would ever hurt a spider. The lesson which the little creature had taught the king was never forgotten.
