下次你再听到某人dead to the world，你就不用担心了！这句话的意思是他睡着了。英语(论坛)中有许多表示睡梦的专用语。那就看看这些有趣的表达方式希望可别让你睡着了喔！
是指梦中充满蛋糕和糖果吗？不！这是用于希望某人晚上做个好梦的表达方式。人们常用来向他们的所爱的人道晚安： "Sweet dreams，my love!"
这些肯定不是美梦！ Nightmares是恐怖的梦境。如果你一再做同样的恶梦，就叫做If reoccurring nightmare。
Hit the hay
当某人告诉你是该hit the hay的时候了，放轻松！这不是要你去谷仓或做任何体力活。在西方国家床垫以前是用草填充的－因此这只是意味着是该睡觉的时间。
heavy sleepers是典型的又高又壮的人而light sleepers则是又小又瘦的人吗？当然不是！Heavy sleepers是指那些睡的很熟而不易唤醒的人。而light sleepers，正相反。就算最小的声音都能把他们吵醒。
Sleep like a log
想象一下段木头－又重又不容易移动。 如果有人sleeping like a log，那他们睡的非常的沉而没有什tossing and turning。例如，你可以说，"I'm so tired from all that exercise that I'll sleep like a log tonight!"
如果有人说喜欢sleep in的话，那么最好早上不要太早打电话给他。这个表达方式指晚起的人。例如，"I sleep in every weekend and wake up around noon."
白天你会不会有时觉得非常的疲倦？如果是power nap可能你帮助你恢复！如果睡几个小时可能让你觉得睡意更浓时，短暂而不超过30分钟的power nap应该能让你感到重获新生。
有时侯，当我们特别累的时候，我们不知不觉就可能睡着了。这叫做dozing off。可能你在看电视，念书甚至在课堂里或工作时就doze off！

He and she were sitting face to face. At this moment, the landlord came in and asked, “Are you sure you do not rent the house any more?” He kept silent and she only shook her head. They were going to divorce, so it was obvious that they would not continue renting the house any more.
Then the landlord began examining the house. After looking around, the landlord screamed, “Damn God! See how you have ruined my house? The walls are full of nails! How could I rent the house to others?”
He said, “The room is too small and can hardly accommodate all of our things. So we could only hang them on the walls.” The landlord did not listen to him and turned around up to the floor.
She began looking around her familiar room. Four years ago, she became his bride here. On the night of their marriage, he felt deeply guilty to her, saying, “I feel so sorry to you for having you live in this small room. In the future I will earn a lot of money to buy our own house.”
The room was only 13 square meters with two nails on the wall next to the door, one for her to hang her bag and the other for hanging umbrellas. At that time, she threw all her stuff such as her bag and umbrella o

1.Limit the pain, target the gain.Recognize that working for this person is "a temporary assignment. You can set limits on how long you'll tolerate it, and use the time to make yourself more marketable." Let's say you decide you can take one more year of this (assuming your boss sticks around that long). "If you figure out what you need to get out of the job to help your career, and go after it, you have a positive incentive to serve out that term," Dufour says.
2.Avoid surprises.Autocrats, even more than most people, "hate to be blindsided," Dufour notes. "Therefore, keep them informed of significant, and even relatively insignificant, developments. They crave control and power, so feeding them tidbits of information satisfies this craving."
3.Be the go-between for your team.If you haven't already taken on this role, Dufour recommends that you earn the trust of other members of your group and be the one who communicates their problems and needs to the boss. "This can be intimidating, since it means telling him things he might not want to hear," Dufour says, "but the tradeoff of elevated status is worth it."

Women are more likely to become bored in a marriage than men, according to a study.
The research showed that while men are more likely to be bored with a partner outside of marriage, for those couples who had tied the knot the roles reversed.
For the study, 88 couples – including one who had been married for 36 years – were asked about their relationship.
The answers included nearly 70 varying descriptions of boredom.
A second group of people were then given a list of these descriptions and asked which ones they identified with in their own relationships.
A relationship being ‘dull’ was the most commonly picked answer, with lack of fun, lack of conversation and lack of romance also scoring highly.
‘The relationship feels like a chore’ was also a popular pick.
Some complained that the ‘butterflies’ they had once felt in their stomach had vanished, while others felt they were in their partner’s shadow.

|[English]Facing the Enemies Within|
Facing the Enemies Within
Let me tell you about five of the other enemies we face from within. The first enemy that you’ve got to destroy before it destroys you is indifference. What a tragic disease this is! “Ho-hum, let it slide. I’ll just drift along.” Here’s one problem with drifting: you can’t drift your way to the top of the mountain.
The second enemy we face is Indecision. Indecision is the thief of opportunity and enterprise. It will steal your chances for a better future. Take a sword to this enemy.
The third enemy inside is doubt. Sure, there’s room for healthy skepticism. You can’t believe everything. But you also can’t let doubt take over. Many people doubt the past, doubt the future, doubt each other, doubt the **, doubt the possibilities and doubt the opportunities. Worse of all, they doubt themselves. I’m telling you, doubt will destroy your life and your chances of success. It will empty both your bank account and your heart. Doubt is an enemy. Go after it. Get rid of it.
The fourth enemy within is worry. We’ve all got to worry some. Just don’t let it conquer you. Instead, let it alarm you. Worry can be useful. If you step off the curb in New York City and a taxi is coming, you’ve got to worry. But you can’t let worry loose like a mad dog that drives you into a small corner. Here’s what you’ve got to do with your worries: drive them into a small corner. Whatever is out to get you, you’ve got to get it. Whatever is pu

A Rose from Homer's Grave By Hans Christian Andersen(1842)
All the songs of the east speak of the love of the nightingale for the rose in the silent starlight night. The winged songster serenades the fragrant flowers.
Not far from Smyrna, where the merchant drives his loaded camels, proudly arching their long necks as they journey beneath the lofty pines over holy ground, I saw a hedge of roses. The turtle-dove flew among the branches of the tall trees, and as the sunbeams fell upon her wings, they glistened as if they were mother-of-pearl. On the rose-bush grew a flower, more beautiful than them all, and to her the nightingale sung of his woes; but the rose remained silent, not even a dewdrop lay like a tear of sympathy on her leaves. At last she bowed her head over a heap of stones, and said, “Here rests the greatest singer in the world; over his tomb will I spread my fragrance, and on it I will let my leaves fall when the storm scatters them. He who sung of Troy became earth, and from that earth I have sprung. I, a rose from the grave of Homer, am too lofty to bloom for a nightingale.” Then the nightingale sung himself to death. A camel-driver came by, with his loaded camels and his black slaves; his little son found the dead bird, and buried the lovely songster in the grave of the great Homer, while the rose trembled in the wind.
The evening came, and the rose wrapped her leaves more closely round her,

我中华民族勤劳、勇敢，尤其是智慧，许多都可以从成语中体现出来。今年美国总统奥巴马在欢迎中国国家主席的宴会上就引用了中国成语，他说的很罗嗦：If you want one year of prosperity, then grow grain. If you want 10 years of prosperity, then grow trees. But if you want 100 years of prosperity, then you grow people.——英语这么长，汉语十二个汉字就解决了：一年树谷、十年树木、百年树人。
从这句成语中显现出来的中国人的智慧的确让美国人心服口服。但是，还有些成语，特别是某些属于“传统美德”的成语，翻译给老外听，却很难让他们理解。比如“童叟无欺”这句成语，汉典上翻译为 we are equally honest with aged and child customers。
和老外晒晒这句话，we are equally honest with aged and child customers，然后加一句This is part of the Chinese traditional virtue，老外未必会像对“百年树人”那样敬佩，因为诚实地对待每一个人是做人的起码准则，尤其是对待老人和孩童，怎么“童叟无欺”也成了高尚“美德”？其实，这样的成语透露出一个文化密码：我们的基因中某种有欺负老人和孩童的劣根性，所以要靠天天讲、月月讲、年年讲来约束自己的行为。同样，“奉公守法”、“瓜田李下”、“拾金不昧”等等传统美德成语也都或多或少地藏有类似的文化密码。
说起“瓜田李下”，插播一段法国诗人兼画家Henri Michaux（亨利·米修）的话。米修在1933年写的一本书Un Barbare en Asie（一个野蛮人在亚洲）（这里的“野蛮人”指他自己）书中写道：“中国害怕丢面子的细腻的情感，在欧洲人眼里无异于病态...他们觉得自己无时不在被他人注目…‘如果你穿过一片果园，而且那里正好有苹果，你可别把手揣在裤子里；要是有甜瓜，你可别碰你的鞋。’中国人没有自我意识，只在乎外在形象，好似他们自己也成为了外界的一部分...”
中国成语中还暗含了许多带有歧视色彩的密码。比如 “妇孺皆知”，连妇女和小娃都知道的事，你懂的。“百度知道”翻译为：Even women and children all know（or It is known even to women and children）。这个话说给老外听，就又透露出轻视妇女的传统观念——这事儿连妇人都知道了，你丫还不清楚？当然妇人绝不是没有见识的，古时候的孟母不就是为了教育好孟子搬了三次家吗？前一阵子，一些省份教育部门建议将《三字经》中“昔孟母，择邻处”——也就是成语“孟母三迁”——这句话予以删除，理由是其暗藏了“环境决定一切”的意思，而现代社会“人要学会适应环境，学会与人和谐相处”。其实“环境决定论”作为一种准学术观点也还可圈可点，但是对于老外来说，“孟母三迁”暗含的阶层歧视是个更大的问题： Menci

The elusive secret of happiness could be as simple as remembering the good times and forgetting the regrets, a new university study reported yesterday.
For people who look at the past through rose-tinted glasses are happier than those who focus on negative past experiences and regrets, according to a new study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
The study helps explain why personality has such a strong influence on a person's happiness and the findings suggest that people with certain personality traits are happier than others because of the way they think about their past, present and future.
The study examined how peoples' ratings on the "Big Five" personality traits relates to their approach to time and life satisfaction.
The "Big Five" model assesses how extroverted, neurotic, open, conscientious and agreeable a person is, and rates individuals as high or low on each personality trait rather than assigning them a personality type.
"We found that highly extraverted people are happier with their li

|[English]Mother's Day History|
Mother's Day History
The history of Mother's Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mother's festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time. In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day.
In 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948), a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mother's Day in honor of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honor mothers. The first Mother's Day observance was a church service honoring Anna's mother. Anna handed out her mother's favorite flowers, the white incarnations, on the occasion as they represent sweetness, purity, and patience. Anna's hard work finally paid off in the year 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaime

Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.
It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on the American people in our history. The images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory -- hijacked planes cutting through a cloudless September sky; the Twin Towers collapsing to the ground; black smoke billowing up from the Pentagon; the wreckage of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the actions of heroic citizens saved even more heartbreak and destruction.
And yet we know that the worst images are those that were unseen to the world. The empty seat at the dinner table. Children who were forced to grow up without their mother or their father. Parents who would never know the feeling of their child’s embrace. Nearly 3,000 citizens taken from us, leaving a gaping hole in our hearts.

Will you marry me?
An elderly widow and widower were dating for about five years. The man finally decided to ask her to marry. She immediately said "yes".
The next morning when he awoke, he couldn't remember what her answer was! "Was she happy? I think so, wait, no, she looked at me funny..."
After about an hour of trying to remember to no avail, he got on the telephone and gave her a call. Embarrassed, he admitted that he didn't remember her answer to the marriage proposal.
"Oh", she said, "I'm so glad you called. I remembered saying 'yes' to someone, but I couldn't remember who it was."

Archbishop to Prince William: William Arthur Philip Louis, wilt thou have this woman to thy wedded wife, to live together according to God's law in the holy estate of matrimony?
大主教：William Arthur Philip Louis，根据上帝神圣的旨意，你是否愿与这名女子缔结婚姻关系，共同生活？
Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honour and keep her, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto her, so long as ye both shall live?
He answers: I will.
Archbishop to Catherine: Catherine Elizabeth, wilt thou have this man to thy wedded husband, to live together according to God's law in the holy estate of matrimony? Wilt thou love him, comfort him, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live?
She answers: I will.

The Archbishop receives Catherine from her father's hand.

1.thumb :大拇指。与汉语相映成趣的是，英语的all(fingers and ) thumbs也表示"笨手笨脚"的意思，例如：（1）I'm all fingers and thumbs this morning. I don't seem to be able to button up my shirt.今天早上我的手怎么这么笨呢，好像连衬衫都扣不上了。（2）He was so excited that his fingers were all thumbs and he dropped the teacup.他激动得手都不好使了，竟把茶杯摔了。
2. forefinger :又称index finger,即食指。前缀fore-表示"位置靠前的"（placed at the front）,所以从排位上说，forefinger应为"第一指"。从功用上看，此手指伸出时有标示或指向的作用。在一些英语工具书中，我们会见到这样的表示"参见"（index）含义的手型符号。
3. middle finger :中指。此指居中，名正言顺，且与汉语说法也一致。
4. ring finger:无名指。从世界各地的婚俗习惯来说，结婚戒指（wedding ring）戴在这一手指（通常指左手）之上，表示已婚。
5. little finger: 顾名思义为小指。在美国和苏格兰，人们又赋予它一个爱称，管它叫 pinkie(pinky)，后缀-ie(-y)有"小巧可爱"之意。

Older staff are more productive than their younger colleagues, say researchers.
More mature members of staff may be weaker and less agile than their junior counterparts, but they more than compensate with their greater experience, ability to work in teams, and success at coping when things go wrong.
The researchers say: ‘While older workers make more errors, perhaps due to declining physical attributes, they hardly make any severe errors, perhaps due to more experience.
‘It is experience that prevents severe errors.’
The scientists who studied production lines at a Mercedes-Benz truck factory in southern Germany also found that younger, more highly educated workers were less productive than those who had fewer qualifications – perhaps because the educated workers got bored more easily.
The researchers, from the University of Mannheim, said their findings debunked the idea that older workers should be made redundant to boost productivity.
They write: ‘In many countries, lower productivity among older workers is used as a motivation for early retirement policies.
