    So excited for the movie! I LOVE the book so much 😀

  6. Selina Lynn

    really liked the book so I’m gonna watch the movie (love that they cast
    jake abel as ian), but it looks like they made some changes.

  7. burdenedwithbooks

    You had a phone call with Stephenie. nbd right?

  8. 331LiveloveLaugh

    From the trailer it looks like Melanie’s younger brother isn’t in it. I
    really hope thats not the case he’s kind of really important to the
    development of the plot.

  9. Skyewhisper

    Parts of the trailer look good, while parts look really bad (like all the
    various kissing scenes). I do not like Stephenie Meyer, nor Twilight, but I
    may just give this movie a chance. The explosions are really pulling me in
    (and I’m a gal). =)

  10. Melanie Skidmore

    I’ve been waiting for this movie since it was announced last March. I’m so
    stoked! It looks amazing!

  11. ibelieveinyou87

    the fact that you talked to stephanie. nbd.

  12. TheGabloka

    I will see the movie and I’m reading the book right now!

  13. Kevin Jenkins

    Totally going to go see the movie! Loved every Twilight movie!

  14. ALBrassard

    I might it on my list

  15. Lara O

    Kaleb, 60sr is so much better with you :) Don’t get me wrong, the other
    guy’s great too, but Kaleb’s the original.

  16. 13ajam

    Will I see The Host HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.. yes

  17. Haley Quinn

    I remember reading the book when it first came out :D! I thought to myself:
    the movie shall be amazing 😀

  18. Garet Walker

    You just have Stephanie Meyers on the phone…. No big deal. “Hey, Steph. What. Is. Up!?”
    “Eh yo! Just another day in the dough!” As she rolls in her billions upon billions of twilight saga legacy green paper.

  19. WhitestWaters

    I absolutely loved the book and I will go see the movie though I fear to be dissapointed. I won’t keep my hopes up.

  20. 4disndat2unme

    Oh how I’ve missed you Kaleb.

  21. HarriHaffi

    ohh…so it’s not the korean movie…you know the one actually worth watching!
    haven’t seen any of the twillight movies…or Harry Potter… And for that I’m kinda proud!

    MVHH

  22. VioletHour Sky

    Me whatching the trailer:
    the guys:Hmmm they are okay…
    the Aston:O MY GOD ITS SO BEAUTYFUL *___*

  23. luckyriverfinn

    I’m reading that book right now, so much better than Twilight. :-)

  24. Saphira46

    Definately! I read the book so many times… So much better than Twilight!

  25. Jordan Evans

    I’m really glad that Stephenie has been speaking out and explaining the differences between her work. So many people will lump an author and their reputation with their work. We saw that with JK Rowling and the Casual Vacancy, and a lot of people actually ended up disappointed. I like that she recognizes how very different works they are and which audiences will like one over the other.

  26. crazydavisgirl22

    The book was pretty good; it starts of a bit slow in the beginning but keep going! You’ll be happy you read it. I can’t wait to see the movie :)

  27. SarahBubbleU

    I saw the commercial the other day and I wanted to go see it before I even knew it was by Stephanie Meyers.

  28. Lauren Larson

    Doesn’t anyone think the trailer was kind of bad? It was almost amateur, the whole putting pictures of people all of the the world with really shiny eyes on it. It was almost like they put in no effort at all. Which made me sad because the book was actually pretty good.

  29. Danielle P.

    what happened with The Casual Vacancy? Was it as successful as HP?

  30. alisa089a

    Welcome back Kaleb.. Please don’t leave us again!

  31. Samantha Little

    I want to se the Host so bad it sounds good and way better than twilight

  32. TwiFiveGirls101

    OH COURSE I’ll see this movie. I’m super excited.

  33. TwiFiveGirls101

    Did you not see the new trailers? The first that came out a year ago was not that great. But the ones that have been coming out each week since Jan/Feb are awesome with cool cars, helicopters, guns, and explosions. Also there is some kissing.

  34. Adam Hutchinson

    I’m no saying this in a bad way, but you look fatter from the side.

  35. isnormalityareality

    I didn’t like Twilight but the Host is a really good book.

  36. Sara848

    its called a teaser trailer. its not supposed to have much in it

  37. HelloMsAnny

    Geez I need to read this book already, it’s been on my shelf since it was released and I STILL haven’t read it but I definitely do not want to see the movie before I’ve read the book.

  38. Merina2222

    Love Stephenie, love Twilight, ready and waiting to love the Host as well :)

  39. willman3006

    I read the host after I read the Twilight series, actually to me it wasn’t as romantic it was just more or less introspective . It brings you into the mind of the characters in a way that Twilight never could.

  40. TheFoundersDaughter

    I hate Twilight with a vengeance, but The Host is just so amazing, it’s definately in my top five novels and book series. Can’t wait for the release!

  41. Caroline1204

    I would probably go see it

  42. Grace TheAwesomePenguin

    I am sticking with Harken. but i might see this movie and possible read the book

  43. Nauru

    Well I truly liked studying it. This information offered by you is very helpful for correct planning.

  44. Jordan Evans

    I don’t know any numbers, but I remember hearing a lot of people pick it up only because Rowling’s name was attached to it, and went in expecting something similar to Harry Potter.

  45. Mr Lou

    If Stephanie would stop making movies out of her novels, perhaps she would have more time to work on Midnight Sun. Then she could finally give us fans what we really want!

  46. Carrossea

    It was really good. I just saw it yesterday. I honestly expected there to be more romance in the movie, even with all the kissing, but I felt they did a good job on focusing on the central plot and the aliens. The kissing actually doesn’t get too much; I felt the scenes were needed to drive the story. Once you see the movie, you’ll understand what I mean. It was also very funny and there was lots of comic relief. The theatre was laughing throughout the movie (not in a bad way, lol).

  47. Carrossea

    My friend who hates Twilight and the movies said that she actually wants to read the book after seeing The Host because it was really good. She came into the advance screening with low expectations because of her distaste of Twilight, but really liked the movie afterwards.

  48. Skyewhisper

    Cool, thanks for the mini-review. I’ll probably end up seeing it! =)

  49. Rememberleegs

    It would have been cool if you hung up on her. Lol

  50. SuperSilverJay

    It amazes me that Kaleb has her number and wastes questions on stuff like that. What about Midnight Sun?!!!

  51. BJuliannaB

    I love the fictional character tshirt!

  52. millernumber1

    Saw it, loved it. Also liked Twilight :)

  53. Danielle P.

    Saw it. Thought it was good! Don’t know why so many critics say it as “horrible”. It wasn’t GREAT, but just good. :)

  54. joel Lopez

    Lol says that the host was great… Great my balls wtf the host was horrible so as twilight was if girls want romance.. There are plenty of romance stories that actually could be enjoyable and has logic.. I will never see this movie

  55. Julie Dee

    i didn’t enjoy the host at all – the book i mean. i barely understood what was going on half the time and was flabbergasted to find out it was going to be made into a movie

  56. CallingAllFandoms101

    The member, Mike Calcutt, discovered the theft during a conversation about interest payments on the loan in March. The thefts occurred after someone set up telephonic banking privileges on his account, then executed nine transfers of $10,000 each from his credit line to his savings account, and then instructed the credit union to wire the money to a drop account in Boston. Once there, the money disappeared. If you don’t fancy hearing a manic north american futurologist and gaming genius, go to y

    精准医疗又叫个性化医疗,是指以个人基因组信息为基础,结合蛋白质组,代谢组等相关内环境信息,为病人量身设计出最佳治疗方案,以期达到治疗效果最大化和副作用最小化的一门定制医疗模式。因此相较传统医疗,精准医疗具有针对性、高效性及预防性等特征。

    美国医学界在2011年首次提出了“精准医学”的概念,今年1月20日,奥巴马又在美国国情咨文中提出“精准医学计划”,希望精准医学可以引领一个医学新时代。10月8日,2015全球创新论坛纽约峰会在纽约穆迪总部大楼举办。乐土投资集团CEO刘如银在峰会上介绍了他的精准医疗生态圈的想法。

    刘如银介绍了乐土投资在美国的国际化实践,包括在美国的地产投资拓展,以及最新投资的医疗健康项目。乐土投资集团(CLIG)定位以硅谷的高科技投资为引擎,以科技医疗和互联网金融为两翼,链接最具价值的深科技健康项目,服务国际大健康和科技发展。

    美国财政预算计划在2016年拨付给美国国立卫生研究院(NIH)、美国食品药品监督管理局(FDA)、美国国家医疗信息技术协调办公室(ONC)等机构共2.15亿美元用于资助这方面的科学研究与创新发展。

    刘如银说:美国的精准医疗主要是围绕着基因组、蛋白组等方面的检测,也就是围绕分子生物学的特性,针对个体化的病理特征进行治疗。而我们所关注的不仅如此,更是系统化的,全过程、全要素、全局性的对医疗过程和临床实践进行优化。我们所指的精准医疗也是针对每一个病人的具体病情,正确选择并精确的应用适当的治疗方法。刘如银认为:精准医疗的最终目标是以最小化的医源性损害、最低化的医疗资源耗费去获得最大化的病患的效益,其前景不可限量。

    精准医疗要做到个性、高效及预防的关键在于筛查和诊断,因此基因测序等检测诊断技术的发展是关键。成本的下降让基因测序商业化市场的打开成为可能,基因测序技术的成熟和商用经过了多年的发展,1980 年自动测序仪出现,2001 年完成了人类基因组框架图标志着这一技术的成熟,2007 年二代基因测序技术大幅降低测序成本,使得这一技术应用出现可能,以走在前列的Illumina 公司为例,该公司自2007 年起把当时每个基因组的测序成本费用从1000万美元降到了当下的1000 美元, 根据Illumina 公司数据,全球NGS(二代基因测序)的应用市场规模预计为200 亿美元,药品研发和临床应用是增速最快的领域,增速超过15%,肿瘤诊断和个性化用药是最有应用前景的领域,市场规模120亿美元。乐土投资与Illumina以及新一代的基因检测公司Genalyte, Centrillion都有着合作关系。

    刘如银说:精准医疗作为医疗模式的革新对提高我国国民健康水平有重要意义,将在基因测序技术发展和国家政策的推动下迎来黄金发展期。精准治疗是下一个新兴朝阳行业,我们关注基因测序、肿瘤诊断及个性化用药等相关投资机会。

    全球创新论坛纽约峰会由全美华人金融协会(The Chinese Finance Association, TCFA) 主办。全美华人金融协会于一九九四年在美国成立。分布在世界各地的会员来自华尔街投行、基金、监管部门、和学术界,已成为联系中美金融界最重要的桥梁之一。协会定期举行学术年会。协会本部设在纽约,并在波士顿,华盛顿,旧金山,伦敦,香港,北京和上海等金融中心设有分会。

    原招商银行行长马蔚华,中信银行美国分行行长文兵,汉世纪投资管理有限公司合伙人吴皓,联合国南南合作办首席经济与投资专家杨庆宏等参加了本年度会议并发表了讲话。
