[English]经济学家新书揭示“美貌价更高”
hjx_221 发表于 2011-12-15 20:47:23

经济学家新书揭示“美貌价更高” 
A new book by an economics professor at the University of Texas-Austin reveals what the world of advertising has known for decades - that beauty sells.
得克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校的一名经济学教授在他的新书中揭示了一个广告界几十年来已经熟知的真理:漂亮的东西卖得好。 But Daniel S Hamermesh also shows that being attractive pays - with good looking employees enjoying more perks and higher pay packets than their plainer colleagues.
但是经济学教授丹尼尔?S?汉默梅希还指出,长相有吸引力可获利--长得漂亮的雇员比相貌平平的同事津贴多、薪水高。 Professor Hamermesh has studied what he refers to as the economics of beauty for about 20 years.
汉默梅希教授已经研究他所谓的美貌经济学达20年之久。 In his book Beauty Pays, published by Princeton University Press, he claims good looking people enjoyed perks beyond their pay - such as party invites, business travel and office privileges - while less attractive workers are overlooked and can often be victims of discrimination.
在他的《美貌价更高》一书中,这位教授称,长相好的人将获得薪水之外的特别待遇,如派对邀请、商务旅行和职场特权,而长相平平的同事则经常被忽略,成为外貌歧视的受害者。该书由普林斯顿大学出版社出版。 Attractive people are more likely to be happier, earn more money, get a bank loan (with a lower interest rate) and marry equally good looking partners.
长相漂亮的人通常更快乐,挣的钱更多,能得到利息更低的银行贷款,还能和长得同样漂亮的伴侣结婚。 As a result, attractive employees are more productive, leading to higher sales and potentially higher profit for themselves or the company they work for.
因此,长相好的雇员业绩更突出,并会为自己或为自己供职的公司带来更高的销售额或更多的潜在收益。 Less cut and dried is what constitutes attractiveness. Far from being merely

[English]Why Are Maps Drawn with North at the Top?
hjx_221 发表于 2011-12-10 8:48:32

Why Are Maps Drawn with North at the Top?
为什么把地图画成北方朝上? Now it is hard to visualize a map that does not feature north at the top, but this was not always so.
现在很难设想,若绘制地图不以北方作为地图的上方。可是过去可并不总是这样绘制的。 The oldest known map in the accepted sense of the word was drawn about 3,800 BC, and represents the river Euphrates flowing through northern Mesopotamia, Iraq. This, and others that followed it, were little more than rough sketches of localized features; it was not until many centuries later that the ancient Greeks placed the science of map-making on a sound footing.
现在已知的被公认为世上最古老的地图绘制于公元前3800年,这幅地图描绘的是流经伊拉克北部的美索不达米亚平原的幼发拉底河。这张地图,以及从这以后绘制的一些地图,最多也只不过算做是一些局部地区的很粗略的一些草图而已;直到很多世纪以后,古希腊人才把绘制地图这门科学置于坚实合理的基础之上。 At the fore front of the pioneers in the field was the Greek mathematician and philosopher Claudius Ptolemaeus (c. AD 90~168), more popularly known to history as Ptolemy. The last great scientist of the classical period, he was the first to draw a map that was based on all available knowledge, rather than guess or imagination. Earlier, the Babylonians had attempted to map the world, but they presented it in the form of a flattened disc rather than a sphere, which was the form adopted by Ptolemy.
在绘制地图这一专业先驱者当中,处于最前列最古的地位的就是古希腊的数学家兼哲学家克劳迪·托勒密尤斯,即历史上广为人知的托勒密。他,作为古典时期的最后一位伟大的科学家,以当时的知识水平为基础,而不是凭猜测或想象,是绘制出地图的第一个人。在这以前更早的时候,巴比伦人曾经企图绘制世界地图,但是巴比伦人绘制成一个扁平的圆盘形,而不是绘制像托勒密所绘制的球形。 Given the state of knowledge of those times, he got things wrong

[English]难住老外的汉译英:牛B英语怎么说
hjx_221 发表于 2011-12-3 9:18:11

难住老外的汉译英:牛B英语怎么说
An American translator in Beijing reflects on the word niubi and what makes it so difficult to translate, and it’s a delightful read.
一位在北京的美国译者反映,“牛逼”一词实在难翻,下面就来看看人家是怎么解释“牛逼”的,很有意思哦! On the face of it, niubi is not untranslatable at all: the characters niu and bi can be rendered into English with great precision by the words – and I beg your pardon – ‘cow pussy’, niu being the zoological reference, bi the anatomical. But though the denotation of niubi is embarrassingly plain, it’s connotations are far from obvious.
从表面上来看,牛逼一词并非不可译,把两个汉字一一对等直译成英语的话,就是“母牛的生殖器”(翻译需要,请原谅我的不文明)。牛是动物学术语,逼是解剖学术语。虽然牛逼的字面意思有点让人尴尬,但很清楚。不过,牛逼的深层含义就有讲究了。 Niubi is a term of approbation, perhaps the greatest such term in colloquial Chinese. Niubi is an attitude, a lifestyle: a complete lack of concern over what other people think of you, and the resulting freedom to do whatever you please. It is knowing exactly what you’re capable of, making the decision to act, and to hell with the consequences. It is the essence of ‘cool’, but taken to the nth degree, and with a dirty word thrown in.
牛逼是一种溢美之词,可能是汉语口语中夸人的最好说法了。牛逼是一种态度,一种生活方式,完全不在意别人是怎么看待你的,因此你可以爱做啥做啥。牛逼的人对自己的能力了若指掌,自己决定要做什么,完全不计后果。牛逼从本质上来说就是“酷”,不过比“酷”要酷上N倍,更何况牛逼里还带个脏字呢! Of course, like all great philosophical concepts, niubi has an inverse side - an excess of niubi leads to self-importance, arrogance, hubris, imperiousness, and very dangerous driving.
当然,和其他的哲学概念一样,牛逼也有其不好的一面。一个人太过牛逼就会自以为是 ,不可一

[English]“Sorry”用法知多少
hjx_221 发表于 2011-11-30 8:32:47

“Sorry”用法知多少
  根据词典,sorry与sore同源,主要含义包括:
  1. 感受或表达同情、遗憾和后悔。
  例如,I’m sorry I’m late; I feel sorry for him; sorry over mistakes she had made; felt sorry over his vanished youth。
  2. 差劲的、毫无价值的。
  例如,a sorry excuse; the car was a sorry piece of junk; a sorry horse; 。
  3. 导致不幸或痛苦的。
  例如,a sorry development; the sorry days of the war; a sorry winter landscape; sorry rainy weather。
  4. 可怜、痛苦的。
  例如,a sorry sight; her clothes were in sorry shape; a sorry decision; my finances were in a sorry state; a sorry state of affairs。
  在第一个义项即有关道歉的含义上,“I’m sorry”根据不同语境至少可以有四种效果:
  1. I’m at fault:承认错误,是最彻底、最难作出的真诚道歉。这意味着道歉着准备承担一切后果。
  2. I regret it:表达遗憾,没有主观故意,也不一定承担后果。这是多数要求道歉的人所期望的结果,但有时候容易与I’m at fault混淆。
  3. I sympathize:表达同情和理解,事实上不属于道歉范围。在面对他人的损失和不幸时,这是常见说法。
  4. I’m not really sorry:事实上属于拒绝道歉,只不过语气委婉而已。
  从sorry的多重含义上,我们就可以想见道歉是一件困难事儿。如果你要求道歉,而对方仅仅说了句“I’m sorry”,不要轻易认为对方的意思就是‘对不起’,而应该根据情况做出判断。如果必要,你应该要求对方明确是否承认有错。记得几年前美军侦察机撞落中国战机的时候,就因为sorry的理解在国内外产生过很大争议。

[English]10种“女朋友”表达方式
hjx_221 发表于 2011-11-18 3:50:12

10种“女朋友”表达方式   女友指浪漫或性关系(romantic/sexual relationship)中相对稳定(regular)的女性伙伴,但通常不属于长期承诺性的关系(long-term committed relationship),这种情况需要用妻子(wife)或爱侣(partner)的说法。   1. Girlfriend也可以简称girl   特别随意的场合可以用gf或GF,如短信(texting)或网聊(internet chat)。   eg: Have you been seeing a guy pretty steadily and would like to know if he wants you to be his girlfriend?   2. 非婚关系中,口语通常可称女方为significant other或SO   这个词不突出性别,只强调亲密关系,所以也可用于男方。类似汉语的‘另一半儿’、‘那口子’、‘他那位’等,但不透露或假设婚姻状态或性取向,用于故意模糊以避免冒犯别人。   eg: Anyone NOT having their Significant Other in the Delivery Room?   3. Life partner通常相当于‘终身伴侣’   但与汉语不同的是它也可以指亲密的终身伙伴,无论同性还是异性。Partner也可以指life partner。   eg: I feel more optimistic being in this relationship. We decided we are going to be life partners.   4. Soulmate或soul mate可以指女友或妻子   也可以指未必有亲密关系的精神伴侣,有一定的神秘或宗教意味。另外,mate也可以指女友。这几个词不区分性别。   eg: So did "God" give attractive people a much higher chance of meeting their soulmate?   5. Fiancée指订婚女友   相对概念是fiancé,及订婚男友。   eg: A 45-year-old man and his fiancée were celebrating a family holiday in their apartment. Out of the blue the man thought that his girlfriend was taking the form of a hideous monster from a horror movie.   6. 有一些词是男女通用的,如true love、date、steady、darling、love、lover、paramour、squeeze等。   7. 还有其它一些词可以指女友,如companion、sweetheart、heartthrob、babe等。   8. 如果是已婚男人的情人,通常用mistress   eg: Picasso’s painting o

[English]这些"关系"不一般
hjx_221 发表于 2011-11-16 20:15:11

这些"关系"不一般
  relative, relation和relationship这三个单词都由relate(有关联,把…联系起来)衍生而来,应该怎样区分捏?
  relative作名词时表示“家人,亲属,亲戚”。
  例:We will visit our relatives on holidays.假期里,我们要拜访亲戚。
  作形容词时表示“相对的”,如relative peace(相对平静)。
  relation指“(公司、国家、个人或团体之间的正式)关系”,此时多用复数relations,以及“(事物之间的)联系”。
  例:Canada and Italy established diplomatic relations in 1970.加拿大和意大利于1970年建立外交关系。
  Relations between workers and managements have improved recently.最近员工和管理层的关系有所改善。
  The result has no relation to that.结果跟那无关。
  它还可表示“家人,亲戚”,与relative含义相同。
  例:They invited all their relations to take part in the wedding.他们邀请了所有的亲戚参加婚礼。
  relationship意为“关系”时其后常用介词between或with,相当于relation,但用法不如relation正式。此外,它还可用作可数名词表示“恋爱关系”,用作不可数名词表示“亲属关系”。
例:There is a close relationship between poor housing and health problems.恶劣的住房条件和健康问题之间有紧密的联系。
  What kind of relationship does she have with him?她和他的关系怎么样?

急婚族weddingrusher
点评:“急婚族”是对急于要找结婚对象的人的简称,这些人或迫于长辈压力而匆匆成家,或迫于就业压力而欲通过婚嫁“曲线就业”。此类人士的共性在于“急”(rushing),故急婚族可译为“wedding rusher”。
背景:近年来,社会上和校园中开始涌现越来越多的“急婚族”。相关统计表明,今春年关出现的“急婚族”增幅近三成。专家分析,“‘急婚族’现象反映了社会转型期人们对金钱的崇拜和婚姻关系的异化,在某种程度上,是由就业压力、生活节奏等原因造成的。” 崩炮族cracker mob
点评:“崩炮族”是对自称为了“转运”而专在人群中放炮的人的称呼。他们自称是“闪客”(flash mob)的变异,因此该词可译为“crackermob”,既能暗示出他们与“闪客”的联系,也能体现他们以放鞭炮崩人为乐的恶作剧行径。
背景:春节期间,北京出现了向人群扔鞭炮以取乐的“崩炮族”。中科院社会心理研究所林春教授认为,这些年轻人可能是想通过这种方式赢得别人的关注,但他们这种做法已危及到了其他人的人身安全,是不可取的。 晒工资wages online exposure
点评:“晒工资”并非将工资拿到太阳底下去晒,而是将工资条拿到网上去曝光。基于这一意蕴,该词可译为“wagesonline exposure”。
背景:《中国青年报》近日所做的民意调查显示,47.5%的人上网看过工资条,37.7%的人愿意本着“匿名填写,保证真实”的原则,将自己的工资条在网上公开。相关人士分析,“晒工资”表达了人们呼唤收入分配透明的社会心态,但是,此类事件也可能会给社会带来负效应,如导致部分人心理失衡或无意间泄露商业秘密等。 钟点养老special old-age care by hour
点评:“钟点养老”是某社区为解决部分空巢老人在节日期间无人照料而推出的“节日钟点养老”服务项目,不同于月付费或年付费的规范性养老服务,故不能直译为“hour care/service for the old”,只可意译为“specialold-age care by hour”。
背景:今春,北京海淀区建材西里社区创建全市首家“即购票即入门”的新型敬老院,这种敬老院集娱乐、运动、住宿、医疗为一体,老人只需花上几元钱,就可在此吃、喝、玩、住一整天。春节期间,多位空巢老人通过购买此类“门票”欢度了佳节。 拼客mass bargainer
点评:“拼客”是集体团购者的别称,此类人士在节假日通过结群团购达到优惠购物的目的。因此,该词可译为“massbargainer”,用来表示为讨价还价占便宜而拼凑搭伙的意思。
背景:每逢佳节,一些家电商场都会迎来一群由5至10人组成的特殊的消费者——“拼客团”。据调查显示,“拼客”族主要集中在北京、上海、深圳、广州等全国主要的大中型城市,以青年白领、学生人群为主,他们时尚却不奢侈,期待用最小的经济成本追求高品位的生活。 最牛钉子户the most willful anti-mover
点评:“钉子户”是对不愿搬迁的住户的称呼。如果按其字面意思将该词直译为“nail family”,在英语(论坛)语境中则有不明所以之嫌,故根据其实际的意义,将该词译为“anti-mover”,意为“抗拒搬迁的人”。“牛”字来源于中国俗语,在英语词典中并无现成的词汇与该词对应,根据其“死硬

[English]人生在于完整
hjx_221 发表于 2011-10-27 6:33:46

人生在于完整  

Once a circle missed a wedge(楔子) . The circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. It chatted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces, but none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching. Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy. Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. Itincorporated(合并,包含) the missing piece into itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice the flowers of talking to the worms. When it realized how different the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.

The lesson of the story, I suggested, was that in some strange sense we are more whole when we are missing something. The man who has everything is in some ways a poor man. He will never know what if feels like to yearn(渴望,向往) , to hope, to nourish his soul with the dream of something better. There is wholeness about the person who has come to terms with his limitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so.

Trusting Souls Excel At Spotting Liars
千谎百计 When you think of someone who’s trusting, you may assume that they’re gullible. But that’s not necessarily true—a fact that your Pollyanna pal might be in a good position to point out. Because people who have faith in their fellow human beings are actually good at spotting lies. The finding is described in the journal Social Psychological & Personality Science.
当你觉得某人容易轻信别人, 你可能就会觉得他们容易上当受骗。其实也不尽然, 你那成天乐呵呵的哥们也许就是一个很好的例子。原因就在于那些信任朋友的人其实很善于看穿谎言。这项发现刊登在《社会心理与性格》期刊上。 Researchers videotaped a cadre of second-year MBA students as they pretended to interview for a job. Half the interviewees were entirely truthful, and half told at least three whoppers, lies they thought would make them more attractive candidates for the fake job.
研究人员拍下了攻读MBA的学生去假装求职面试的大致过程。有一半的面试者表现得十分诚实, 而另一半则撒了至少三个弥天大谎使他们在模拟求职中更为突出。 The scientists then showed these videos to a second set of subjects and asked them to rate the honesty of the interviewees and say which ones they’d hire. The results: subjects who said they think that most people are basically honest, good-natured, and kind were better at spotting the liars than the self-described cynics. Subjects who were more suspicious were, ironically, more likely to hire the liars and less likely to detect their fabrications.
科学家们将这些录像带给第二组人观看,让他们给面试者的诚信做评价并告知他们想录取那些人。结果是,那些认为大多数人都诚实,性格好,善良的人比自诩为愤世嫉俗的人更善于识破谎言。更讽刺的是,那些疑心病重的人到更青睐那些说谎者,也不检测他们编制的谎言。 So trust may lend itsel

爱笑的人运气好 事实告诉你这种说法是真的
    大家都说爱笑的人运气不会差到哪里去,有没有发现你身边整天笑容满面的人运气也不错呢?事实上他们不是因为运气好而笑,而是因为爱笑而运气好哦! People are always smiling, especially in groups, but it doesn't just signal that they're happy. We use smiles for specific social purposes.
人们经常会笑,特别是在一个团队里的时候,其实笑并不代表他就快乐。我们笑是为了迎合某些社交目的。 1. Get others to trust you
1. 让别人相信你 One signal that suggests we are trustworthy is a smile. Genuine smiles send a message that other people can trust and cooperate with us. Economists even consider that smiles have a value. In one study by Scharlemann et al. (2001) participants were more likely to trust another person if they were smiling. This study found that a smile increased people's willingness to trust by about 10%.
微笑能给别人发出一种信号,告诉他们我是值得相信的。经济学家甚至认为微笑是有价值的。在Scharlemann等学者做的一项研究中,研究结果显示如果你对对方微笑的话,对方会更加愿意相信你的话。研究结果还显示,微笑能让对方相信你的话意愿增加10%。
2. Smile for leniency
2. 让别人放你一马 When people do bad things they often smile when they are caught. Is this to their benefit? According to a study conducted by LaFrance and Hecht (1995), it can be. We treat people who've broken the rules with more leniency if they smile afterwards. It doesn't matter whether it's a false smile, a miserable smile or a real felt smile, they all work to make us want to give the transgressor a break.
当人们做坏事被抓到时,他们通常会笑。这是为什么呢?根据LaFrance和Hecht做的研究结果显示,做坏事被抓到的人如果露出微笑的话,我们对他们可能会多一些仁慈。不论是假笑、惨笑还是真正的不好意思的笑都能让对方放你一马的想法强烈一点。 3. Recover from social slip-ups<

hjx_221 发表于 2011-10-11 7:36:54

If So For Birds, Why Not For Man? 鸟儿尚且如此,何况人呢?  This is a true story. It was on a winter morning, near Oxford, Maryland, that a friend of mine set the breakfast table beside the huge window, which overlooked the Tred Avon River. Across the river, beyond the dock, the snow laced the rim of the shore in white. For a moment she stood quietly, looking at what the night's storm had painted. Suddenly she leaned forward and peered close to the frosted window. “It really is true,” she cried out loud. “There is a goose out there.” She saw a large Canadian goose, very still, its wings folded tight to its sides, its feet frozen to the ice. Then from the dark skies, she saw a line of swans. They moved in their own singular formation, graceful, intrepid, and free. Suddenly they floated from the top of the sky downward and at last surrounded the frozen goose. Seeing this, my friend feared what life it still had might be pecked out by those great swan bills. Instead, amazingly, those bills began to work on the ice. At last, the goose was rimmed by a narrow margin of ice instead of the entire creek. The swans rose again, hovered in a circle, awaiting the results of their labors. The goose's head lifted. Its body pulled. Then the goose was free and standing on the ice. But it seemed not be able to fly. Later, four of the swans came down around it. Their powerful beaks scraped the goose's wings from top to bottom and rode up its body, chipping o

[English]Double Ninth Festival
hjx_221 发表于 2011-10-5 17:38:50

Double Ninth Festival
九九重阳节 The 9th day of the 9th lunar month is the traditional Chongyang Festival, or Double Ninth Festival. It usually falls in October in the Gregorian calendar. In an ancient and mysterious book Yi Jing, or The Book of Changes, number "6" was thought to be of Yin character, meaning feminine or negative, while number "9" was thought to be Yang, meaning masculine or positive. So the number nine in both month and day create the Double Ninth Festival, or Chongyang Festival. Chong in Chinese means "double." Also, as double ninth was pronounced the same as the word to signify "forever", both are "Jiu Jiu," the Chinese ancestors considered it an auspicious day worth celebration. That's why ancient Chinese began to celebrate this festival long time ago.
农历九月九日,为传统的重阳节。因为古老的《易经》中把“六”定为阴数,把“九”定为阳数,九月九日,日月并阳,两九相重,故而叫重阳,也叫重九,古人认为是个值得庆贺的吉利日子,并且从很早就开始过此节日。 The custom of ascending a height to avoid epidemics was passed down from long time ago. Therefore, the Double Ninth Festival is also called "Height Ascending Festival". The height people will reach is usually a mountain or a tower. Ancient literary figures have left many poems depicting the activity. Even today, people still swarm to famous or little known mountains on this day.
在古代,民间在重阳有登高的风俗,故重阳节又叫“登高节”。相传此风俗始于东汉。唐代文人所写的登高诗很多,大多是写重阳节的习俗;杜甫的七律《登高》,就是写重阳登高的名篇。登高所到之处,没有划一的规定,一般是登高山、登高塔。 On this day, people will eat Double Ninth Gao (or Cake). In Chinese, gao (cake) has the same pr

Free Minds and Hearts at Work by Jackie Robinson
自由思想与心灵的作用 杰基·罗宾逊
At the beginning of the World Series of 1947, I experienced a completely new emotion, when the National Anthem was played.This time, I thought, it is being played for me, as much as for anyone else. This is organized major league baseball, and I am standing here with all the others; and everything that takes place includes me.
1947年的世界职业棒球大赛开赛那天,当美国国歌奏响的那一刻,我产生了一种全新的情感。这一次,国歌是为我而奏,就像为其他人奏一样。我终于能和其他人一样,站在职业棒球大联盟球赛的赛场上,成为这一切的一部分。
About a year later, I went to Atlanta, Georgia, to play in an exhibition game. On the field, for the first time in Atlanta, there were Negroes and whites. Other Negroes, besides me. And I thought: What I have always believed has come to be.
大约一年以后,我参加了在乔治亚州首府亚特兰大举办的一次棒球表演赛。这是亚特兰大的赛场上第一次同时出现白人和黑人运动员。除我之外,还有其他黑人选手。那一刻,我一直坚守的信念终于实现了。
And what is it that I have always believed? First, that imperfections are human. But that wherever human beings were given room to breathe and time to think, those imperfections would disappear, no matter how slowly. I do not believe that we have found or even approached perfection. That is not necessarily in the scheme of human events. Handicaps, stumbling blocks, prejudices — all of these are imperfect. Yet, they have to be reckoned with because they are in the scheme of human events.

成功道路上必须远离的五句丧气话   1. I Am Not Good Enough。
  I have dreams. You have dreams. We all have dreams, but there’s always something holding us back. If it isn’t money, resources, or skills, then it is a fear of not being good enough。
  我不够好。
  我有梦想,你有梦想,大家都有梦想。但究竟是什么阻挡了我们前进的脚步?不是金钱,不是资源,不是技能,而是我们害怕自己不够好。   2. I Am Not Worth It。
  A lot of self-sabotage happens because of this belief. Your beliefs can play tricks on you and it can be as simple as procrastinating and missing a deadline if you’re a freelancer, or just missing a few vital goals in your life。
  我不配。
  很多人自暴自弃都是因为这个想法。有时候你的想法会捉弄你:从让你错过交稿的日期(如果你是个自由作家的话)到让你错过生命中的重要目标。   3. I Can’t Do It。
  There are various forms of I Can’t Do It-itis, but when you notice where it is controlling your life, you can take corrective action。
  我不行。
  或许你有很多“我不行”清单。不过一旦你知道了究竟是什么在支配着你的生活,你就能够扭转局面。   4. I feel bad about feeling bad。
  Feeling bad isn’t bad. We live in a culture where we are supposed to be happy and cheerful all the time, but that just isn’t reality. When we try to suppress our negativity, bad things happen. Whenever I’m negative, I sit with it, breathe, and do my best to be present。
  我为自己的难过而感到难过。
  感觉不好并不是一件坏事。我们生活在一种要求人们时时刻刻保持积极的文化中,但这并不现实。压抑自己的消极情绪是不好的。每当我感到消极,我就会静静的坐下,呼吸,面对现实,与这种情绪共存。   5. What If...
  You don’t leave yourself a lot of options if you’re constantly fearing the worst。
  如果……怎么办?
  如果你总往最坏的方面想,你就没有多少可选择的了。

[English]The Atlantic Ocean 大西洋
hjx_221 发表于 2011-9-25 9:17:32

The Atlantic Ocean 大西洋 The Atlantic Ocean is one of the oceans that separate the Old World from the New. For centuries it kept the Americas from being discovered by the people of Europe.
大西洋是把亚、欧、非这个旧世界与南北美洲这个新发现的世界相隔开的一片大沣。若干世纪以来由于有大西洋相隔,使欧洲人一直没能发现南北美洲。 It is more than 4,000 miles (6,000 km) wide where Columbus crossed it. Even at its narrowest it is about 2,000 miles (3,200 km) wide. This narrowest place is between the bulge of south America and the bulge of Africa.
在哥伦布横渡大西洋的地方,洋面宽达4000多英里(6000公里)。即使在洋面最窄的地方宽度也约有2000英里(3200公里)。这洋面最窄的地方就是介于南美洲的突出点和非洲的突出点之间。 Two things make the Atlantic Ocean rather unusual. For so large an ocean it has very few islands. Also, it is the world's saltiest ocean.
有两点使大西洋非同一般。一是,这么大的一片汪洋,里面几乎没有岛屿。二是,这里是世界上海水最咸的大洋。 There is so much water in the Atlantic that it is hard to imagine how much there is. But suppose no more rain fell into it and no more water was brought to it by rivers. It would take the ocean about 4,000 years to dry up. On the average the water is a little more than two miles (3.2 km) deep, but in places it is much deeper. The deepest spot is near Puerto Rico. This "deep" measures 30,246 feet-almost six miles (9.6 km).
大西洋里有很多很多的海水,以致很难让人想像出来到底有多少海水。倡假如现在就不再有雨水落进大西洋,假如一切河流的水现在也都不往大西洋里面流,那么大西洋大约再过4000年就会干涸。大西洋平均水深稍微超过两英里(合3.2公里),不过有些地方却更深得多,最深的地方是在波多黎各附近。这里水深达30246英尺--,几乎是6英里(9。6公里)。 One of the longest mountain ranges of the world rises from the floor of the Atlantic. This mo

[English]“三手烟”成潜在健康杀手
hjx_221 发表于 2011-9-25 9:09:10

“三手烟”成潜在健康杀手   “二手烟”对人体健康的危害刚刚普及得差不多,这“三手烟”又来了。其实说白了,吸烟这件事情就是有害的,不论是一手,二手,还是三手。   Third-hand smoke is generally considered to be residual nicotine and other chemicals left on a variety of indoor surfaces by tobacco smoke. This residue is thought to react with common indoor pollutants to create a toxic mix. This toxic mix of third-hand smoke contains cancer-causing substances, posing a potential health hazard to nonsmokers who are exposed to it, especially children。
  三手烟(third-hand smoke)指吸烟之后残留在室内各种物体表面的尼古丁以及其它化学物质。这些残留物可能会与室内的其它污染物产生反应然后形成一种有毒的混合物。这种三手烟有毒混合物含有致癌物质,对接触到该物质的非吸烟人群,尤其是儿童,有潜在的健康威胁。   Studies show that third-hand smoke clings to hair, skin, clothes, furniture, drapes, walls, bedding, carpets, dust, vehicles and other surfaces, even long after smoking has stopped. Infants, children and nonsmoking adults may be at risk of tobacco-related health problems when they inhale, ingest or touch substances containing third-hand smoke。
  研究显示,在烟被掐灭很长时间以后,三手烟还是会残留在头发、皮肤、衣服、家具、窗帘、墙壁、床铺、地毯、灰尘、车辆以及其它物体的表面。婴幼儿和不吸烟的成人吸入、摄入或者接触到含有三手烟的物质后,就会有引发烟草类有关疾病的危险。 男人饮酒时千万别忘几个原则
  酒是把双刃剑。各种酒中都含有营养物质,也含有害成分。凡事有度,男人适量饮酒有益健康;过量饮酒则有害健康。下面我们一起来看看男人饮酒的好处与坏处以及饮酒的原则。
  有研究称,每日饮酒小于20克,可使冠心病风险减少20%,最好选择饮用果酒,如葡萄酒、黄酒、白酒都可保健,建议成年男性每天饮酒不超过25克。法国男性的平均寿命为75岁,女性为83岁,在欧洲首屈一指。谈起健康长寿秘诀,不少人都认为与葡萄酒有关。老年人喝点酒,能舒筋活血,有利于身体健康,以饮用果酒为佳。但需要提醒的是,老年人应少喝或不喝啤酒。此外,自己制作滋补酒,也有助于提高机体抵抗力。
  喝酒吃法不同保健功效不同
  但是要注意,吃法不同,其保健效用也不同。生喝黄酒,具有消食化积、镇静作用;热饮黄酒,能驱寒去湿、活血化淤。举个例子,将黄酒烧开,打进鸡蛋1个,成蛋花

[English]How to Be a Successful Language Learner?

How to Be a Successful Language Learner?
怎样才能学好一种语言? "Learning a language is easy. Even a child can do it!"
"学会一种语言是很容易的。甚至一个小孩子都能学会!" Most adults who are learning a second language would disagree with this statement. For them, learning a language is a very difficult task. They need hundreds of hours of study and practice, and even this will no guarantee success for every adult language learner.
正在学习又一种语言的大多数成年人往往都不会同意这种说法。对成年人来说,学习另一种语言是很难的事。他们需要数个小时去钻研去练习,结果即使是这样,也不一定保证每一个语言的成年人都能学成功。 Language learning is different from other kinds of learning. Some people who are very intelligent and successful in their fields find it difficult to succeed in language learning. Conversely, some people who are successful language learners find it difficult to succeed in other fields.
学习语言跟学习其他事物是不同的。有一些人很聪明,在他们自己的专业领域里很有成就,可是却发现很难学会第二种语言。有些人学习语言方面很成功,可是却发现要在其他专业领域取得成就确非易事。 Language teachers often offer advice to language learners: "Read as much as you can in the new language." "Practice speaking the language every day." "Live with people who speak the language." "Don't translate - try to think in the new language." "Learn as a child would learn; play with the language."
语言教师常向学习者提出建议:"尽可能地用你新学语言文字去大量阅读"。"每天都练习说这种语言"。"与操这种语言的人生活在一起"。"不要通过翻译--昼用新学的语言去思考"。"像小孩学话那样;用这种新语言去做游戏"。 But what does a successful language learner do? Language learning research shows that successful language learners are similar in many ways.

[English]如何进入深度睡眠
hjx_221 发表于 2011-9-20 8:56:38

如何进入深度睡眠

    翻来覆去睡不着,好不容易睡着又噩梦不断?早晨比闹钟醒的还早,结果一整天无精打采?你需要深度睡眠!深度睡眠对人体的健康起决定作用,6小时的深睡眠远比12小时的浅睡眠质量高很多,简单的说,深度睡眠就是一种高效又省时的睡眠,来看看怎么做吧:

1. Relaxing Rituals to Rest Easy
In Chinese Medicine, nighttime is yin time—or, simply, when the body takes care of itself instead of your desires. Proper sleep is required for your body to repair itself and regenerate. To reach deep, restful sleep, your spirit and heart must be calm. Excessive worry, anxiety, and depression can all disturb the spirit and activate the mind—making it near impossible to fall asleep and stay asleep. Rituals to sooth your spirit and induce a sleep response before bed include soaking your feet in Epson salts for 15 minutes, writing all of your thoughts in a journal to get them out of your head, and practicing relaxation before bed, like the Stress Release meditation below.

放松调节助你轻松入睡
    中医认为,夜间属于阴时间---即清心寡欲并让你的身心得到彻底放松的时间段。你的身体需要恰当的睡眠进行自我修复和调节。你的身心需彻底放松才能进入安然的深度睡眠中去。过度担心、焦虑和忧虑会干扰你的精神状态并让你思绪愁闷得无法入睡。放松调节可以缓解你劳累疲倦了一天的心灵,具体的做法有:在爱普生盐水里泡脚15分钟,将你头脑中的所有想法写在纸上释放出来,睡前做会儿释放压力的冥想。

2. When Food Disturbs Sleep
When you eat late, you wake up tired. Your body will be busy digesting your dinner while you are trying to sleep, so you won't feel rested in the morning. Do not eat anything for at least three hours before bedtime. Also, cut back on eating bacon, cheese, chocolate, ham, potatoes, tomatoes, and sausage, especially before bed. These foods contain tyramine, which inhibit

[English]六招治愈你的拖延症
hjx_221 发表于 2011-9-18 8:03:26

六招治愈你的拖延症 1. Don’t think about it that much
One way to deal with the task is to put your mind elsewhere and not think about it that much. Try not to think actively about the task before it actually happens. You're wasting your energy on to something, that you don’t need to focus on right then.
不要想太多
应对烦心任务的一种方法是把注意力转移到其他事情上。除非事到临头,否则不要提前想着它。否则你就是在浪费自己的精力。 2. Find alternative ways to do it
Another great way of tackling the task is to find alternative ways to do it. For example, if you hate cleaning your home, you may want to think different ways of handling the task – like cleaning it room-by-room, cleaning it by starting from a living room first (if you have started from a kitchen normally) and so on.
不走寻常路
另一种应对的方式是发现不同的做事方法。如果你痛恨打扫房间,那么你可以探索一下打扫房间的新方法:是一个屋子一个屋子的打扫,还是从起居室开始打扫(如果你一般情况下是从厨房开始的话)? 3. Do it as soon as you can
As soon as you get the irritating task done, the better. Once it’s off your mind, you can put your focus and your energy to other things instead.
越快越好
令人烦心的任务,越快完成越好。一旦你不用想着它了,你就可以把注意力转移到其他令你愉快的事情上了。 4. Break the task into small pieces
In order to make the level of entry lower and prevent procrastination on that task, break it into smaller pieces. For example, if you have to write a report, you could make a decision to write 3 pages of that report every day. Alternatively you can decide that you will work on the task at least 1 hour per day.
分解任务
为了让你能更容易的开始一项烦心的工作,而不是一拖再拖,你需要分解工作。比如要完成
