[English]中国人常说错的20句英语
hjx_221 发表于 2011-4-2 9:04:00

中国人常说错的20句英语 1. 我很喜欢。
错误:I very like it
正确:I like it very much. 2. 这个价格对我挺合适的。
错误:The price is very suitable for me.
正确:The price is right.
Note:suitable (合适的、相配的)最常见的用法是以否定的形式出现在告示或通知上,如:下列节目儿童不宜。The following programme is not suitable for children在这组句子中用后面的说法会更合适。 3. 你是做什么工作的呢?
错误:What’s your job?
正确:Are you working at the moment?
Note:what’s your job这种说法难道也有毛病吗?是的。因为如果您的谈话对象刚刚失业,如此直接的问法会让对方有失面子,所以您要问:目前您是在上班吗?Are you working at the moment?接下来您才问:目前您在哪儿工作呢?Where are you working these days?或者您从事哪个行业呢?What line of work are you in? 顺带说一下,回答这类问题时不妨说得具体一点,不要只是说经理或者秘书。 4. 用英语怎么说?
错误:How to say?
正确:How do you say this in English?
Note:How to say是在中国最为泛滥成灾的中国式英语之一,这决不是地道的英语说法。同样的句子有:请问这个词如何拼写?How do you spell that please?请问这个单词怎么读?How do you pronounce this word? 5. 明天我有事情要做。
错误:I have something to do tomorrow?
正确:Sorry but I am tied up all day tomorrow.
用I have something to do来表示您很忙,这也完全是中国式的说法。因为每时每刻我们都有事情要做,躺在那里睡大觉也是事情。所以您可以说我很忙,脱不开身:I’m tied up.还有其他的说法:I’m I can’t make it at that time. I’d love to, but I can’t, I have to stay at home. 6. 我没有英文名。
错误:I haven’t English name.
正确:I don’t have an English name.
Note:许多人讲英语犯这样的错误,从语法角度来分析,可能是语法功底欠缺,因为have在这里是实义动词,而并不是在现在完成时里面那个没有意义的助动词。所以,这句话由肯定句变成否定句要加助动词。明白道理是一回事,习惯是另一回事。我没有钱;I don’t have any money.我没有兄弟姐妹;I don’t have any brothers or sisters.我没有车。I don’t have a car. 7. 我想我不行。

[English]Name dropping is ......
hjx_221 发表于 2011-4-1 20:35:28

Name dropping is ...... Name dropping is the practice of mentioning important people or institutions within a conversation, story, song, online identity, or other communication.
Name dropping指在谈话、故事、歌曲、网络身份或者其它交流中提及重要人物或机构的行为,暂译为“拽人名”。

Name dropping is used to position oneself within a social hierarchy. It is often used to create a sense of superiority by raising one's status. By implying (or directly asserting) a connection to people of high status, the name-dropper hopes to raise his or her own social status to a level closer to that of those whose names he or she has dropped, and thus elevate himself or herself above, or into, present company.
“拽人名”通常是为了在某个社会层级中确立自己的地位,通过提高自己的地位来建立一种优越感。这些人在暗示(或者直接表明)自己与高层人士的关系时希望能够将自己的社会地位提升到与那些高层接近的状态,从而凌驾于身边同伴之上,或者成为与其平等的一员。

Name dropping can also be used to identify people with a common bond. By indicating the names of people one knows, one makes known his or her social circle, providing an opportunity for others with similar connections to relate.
“拽人名”还能用来搜寻与自己有共同交际圈的人。一个人在提到自己认识的

[English]好睡眠让你变得更聪明
hjx_221 发表于 2011-3-24 6:58:55

好睡眠让你变得更聪明 It's surprising news bound to bring joy to students studying for exams everywhere. The best way to memorise newly-acquired knowledge is to go to sleep, scientists believe. Researchers in Germany found that the brain is better during sleep than during wakefulness at resisting attempts to scramble or corrupt a recent memory. Their study, published in Nature Neuroscience, provides new insights into the hugely complex process by which we store and retrieve deliberately acquired information -- learning, in short.
科学家的这项最新的研究估计能让广大莘莘学子“雀跃万分”了,因为研究发现:睡眠使得人们吸收新知识、记住新信息的能力大大提高,也就是说,睡觉是最好的吸收新知识的方式。想学习?想变的更加聪明?睡觉去吧!据悉,来自德国的研究员发现人处于睡眠状态时,大脑更能“记住和吸收”刚学到的知识,恰恰相反,如果人在清醒状态的时候,人的大脑会对刚学到的知识、刚接收到的信息产生“本能的抵制”,比起睡觉的时候,处理新信息的能力要差得好多。这项最新的调查结果发表在《自然神经科学》杂志上,这项杂志主要分析了人的神经系统对于在学习的认知能力上起到什么作用。 Fresh memories, stored temporarily in a region of the brain called the hippocampus, do not gel immediately, earlier research showed. It was also known that reactivation of those memories soon after learning plays a crucial role in their transfer to more permanent storage in the brain's 'hard drive', the neocortex. During wakefulness, however, this period of reactivation renders the memories more fragile. Learning a second poem at this juncture, for example, will likely make it harder to commit the first one to deep memory.
为什么睡觉反而是吸收新知识的最好方式呢?科学家是这样解答的。这是要源于大脑中的“海马体”的“吸收习惯”的原因,据悉,大脑内的海马体煮药负责学习和记忆,日常生活中的记忆,特别是“短期记忆”都储存在海马体中,如果一个记忆片段,比

[English]获得尊重比其他更快乐
hjx_221 发表于 2011-3-17 7:54:30

获得尊重比其他更快乐 Remember affirmations?[“Because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.”] Well, if Stuart Smalley’s shot in the arm makes you smile, you’re not alone.Because a new study shows that young people would rather pump up their self-esteem than see a friend, have a drink or cash a big fat paycheck.The results appear in the Journal of Personality.
还记得自我肯定法吗?“我够好了,我够聪明了,真是该死,大家都这么喜欢我。”好吧,如果斯尔图特·斯莫利的一番鼓励让你咧嘴一笑的话,还有很多人跟你一样。因为新的研究发现,比起和朋友见面、喝酒或是兑换一张巨额支票,年轻人更渴望获得别人的尊重。此研究结果发表在《个性杂志》上。 We all like feeling good about ourselves.But can a little praise really trump a slice of pizza, a great party or a wad of cash?College students were given a questionnaire.And they were asked to rate various activities based on how much they liked or wanted them.Things like: drinking, hanging with friends, having sex, and getting paid.
我们都愿意对自己有个良好的感觉。但一个小小的称赞真的能击败一块比萨、一个很棒的聚会或一叠钞票吗?我们让大学生做一份调查问卷。他们需要根据自己对各种活动的喜好程度评价这些活动。这些活动包括:喝酒、与朋友在一起消磨时间、做爱、以及领工资等。 The results?Undergrads do like those things.But not as much as they say they like getting good grades or a compliment.Study author Brad Bushman says “American society seems to believe that self-esteem is the cure all for every social ill, from bad grades to teen pregnancies to violence.But there has been no evidence that boosting self-esteem actually helps with these problems.We may be too focused on increasing self-esteem.”
结果如何呢?学生们的确喜欢这些活动。但他

巧防私人账户被黑有绝招

    忘记了设置的冗长密码?害怕账户被黑?所有这些烦心事将成为历史,因为研究表明,只要将密码字母全部改为大写形式,账户被黑的几率就会大大降低。 Forget your unwieldy passwords? Worry about being hacked? All this nuisance would become history, since researchers have found that simply by upper-casing your password you can minimize a hacker's chance of breaking into your account.
忘记了设置的冗长密码?害怕账户被黑?所有这些烦心事将成为历史,因为研究表明,只要将密码字母全部改为大写形式,账户被黑的几率就会大大降低。 A six-letter password in lower-case text takes a hacker's computer just ten minutes to crack, according to statistics collated by Bloomberg Businessweek. But make those letters upper-case and it takes ten hours. Add numbers and/or symbols to your password and the hacker's computer has to work for 18 days.
《商业周刊》 数据显示,黑客只需用10分钟即可破解6个小写字母组成的密码。但若是大写字母密码,黑客就得花掉10个小时来破解。如果在大写字母中添加数字和(或)符号,18天之内你的账户会安然无恙。 If you choose a nine letter password that includes numbers and/or symbols would take a hacker's computer a staggering 44,530 years to break.
另外,选择一个由9个字母组成的密码并添加了数字和(或)符号,会花掉黑客44530年才能成功破解。 However, 50 percent of people choose a common word or simple key combination for their password. The most used passwords are 123456, password, 12345678, qwerty and abc123.

[English]品酒知识大扫盲
hjx_221 发表于 2011-3-7 9:59:14

品酒知识大扫盲
    品酒是西方文化中的一项重要社交礼仪,被视为一种细致而富有情趣的风雅之举。然而,品酒并不是简单地喝酒,而是一门感悟人生真谛的艺术。如何欣赏和享用葡萄酒,是每位与时俱进人士的必修课。 Holding a wine glass 正确地握酒杯:
Never hold the glass by its bowl, only by its stem since the heat of your hand will quickly warm the liquid.
Tips: 每次不要倒太多酒,少许即可。如果要同时品好几种酒,应从清淡的白葡萄酒开始,依次到醇厚的红葡萄酒。在品尝两种酒期间,喝口清水漱口将有助于你更好地鉴赏每种酒的味道。 Sight 观色:
Look at the wine - in daylight if possible. The best way is to slightly tilt the wine in the glass and hold it up to the light or look at it against a white or pale background. What do you see? Is the wine clear or cloudy? The color will vary according to what wine it is.
Tips: 新酿的红酒是鲜亮的覆盆子红(bright-raspbeery color),而陈年红酒是砖红色(brick-like color)。白葡萄酒则随着年份的增长依次由浅绿色(pale green)变为黄色,金棕色(golden brown),并且其金色会愈来愈显眼。 Swirl 摇晃:
While firmly holding the stem of the wine glass, gently swirl the glass in tiny circles on a flat surface for 10 to 20 seconds allowing oxygen to penetrate the wine.
Tips: 将酒放入杯中旋转是为了让酒快速氧化,并沿着杯沿散发出它的芬芳。 Smell or Sniff 闻香:
Tip the glass up and stick your nose in it and inhale. At the top of the glass, the smells are more floral and fruity; deeper in the glass, they are richer. Try to detect the full range of scents from berry to floral to spicy to woody ... and so on. Consider intensity and appeal.
Tips: 人类对味道的感知80%是通过鼻子,所以品酒时闻一闻酒香很重要。不要将鼻子伸得太下,否则你的鼻子很快就会疲惫,甚至嗅觉失灵。 Sip and Taste 品尝:

hjx_221 发表于 2011-3-2 10:56:11

十条建议让大学生活不后悔 1. Answer the question, "Why am I going to college?"
回答问题:“我为什么要上大学?” Many college students really don't have a clear reason for being there other than the fact that they don't know what else to do yet.  They inherit goals from family and peers which aren't truly their own. What are you there to learn?  What do you want to experience?
很多大学生对于上大学都没有明确的原因,除了一个事实——不知道还有其它的事可以做。他们的目标不是出于内心而是根植于家庭以及同伴。你在这里学什么?你想要经历体验什么? 2. Imagine your ideal college experience.
想象你的大学生活 Once you know why you're going to university,imagine your ideal outcome.  Whether you've already started university or not, stop and simply write down some attributes of your ideal experience. Describe it in as much detailas you can. Real life will of course turn out differently than you visualize.  The point of visualization is to giveyou more clarity for making decisions right now.
一旦明确了上大学的目的,就想象一下最完美的结局。无论你是否已经开始了你的大学生活,停会儿,把你的一些完美畅想的特点都简单地写下来。尽可能地描述详细。真实的生活当然会不同于你的想象。但想象的关键在于可以帮助你现在更好地做决定。 3. Take at least one extra class each semester.
每学期至少要报一门选修课 The real benefit to a dense schedule isn't that you'll graduate sooner.  The real benefit is that you'll enjoy a richer experience.  This sort of thing sure looks great on a resume.
紧凑的学习计划的真正好处不是你能很快毕业。真正的好处是你可以享受一个更丰富的经历。而且这也会给你的简历锦上添花。 4. Set clear goals for each class.
每个课程都确立目标 Decide wha

[English]留心身边的小“词”
hjx_221 发表于 2011-3-2 10:51:59

留心身边的小“词”     面对海量的词汇量,很多学生被搞的焦头烂额,那么如何利用好平常的日常生活去学习口语常见词汇呢? 看牌匾
 
   不少公司、企业的牌匾都是中英两种文字书写的。最常见的如国有四大银行:中国银行(Bank of China)、中国农业银行(Agricultural Bank of China)、中国建设银行(China Construction Bank)、中国工商银行(Industrial and Commercial Bank of China)。另外,还有交通银行(Bank of Communications)和招商银行(China Merchants Bank)。注意:这些黑体标注的单词可都是我们各类考试中常考的,观察这些牌匾能让你发现不少学过的单词其实一直就在你身边。
  
观名车  
    大街上各种车辆川流不息,不知你仔细看过它们的品牌没有,其中不少都是英文单词:日本丰田旗下的corolla(n. 花冠)和crown(n. 皇冠);本田的accord (v./n. 一致)、韩国现代的sonata(n. 奏鸣曲)、以及韩国现代的refine(v. 精炼;精制),还有铃木的swift(adj. 迅速的)系列、大众的golf(n. 高尔夫)系列、菲亚特fiat(n. 命令)等等。记下这些单词,回家查查它们的意思,你会发现它们的中文译名和在英文里的意思还并不完全一样。不过,也别有一番乐趣,喜欢名车的同学们不仅开拓了眼界,也增加了词汇量,可谓一举两得。
  
逛超市  
    超市里可学的单词更是举不胜举。洗发水飘柔rejoice(v. 使高兴)、面巾纸清风breeze(n. 微风)。通常,在面巾纸的外包装上,大都可以看到handkerchief(n. 手帕,纸巾)、在大多数饮料瓶上则大都印有nutrition(营养)、energy(热量)、protein(蛋白质)、carbohydrate(碳水化合物)、calorie(卡路里)等重要单词,超市里的商品可谓琳琅满目,只要用心发现,口语常用词汇随处可见。
  
    这些都是生活中常用的高频词汇,大家不妨随身携带一个小本随时记录下来,回去查单词的意思和发音并形成短期记忆,倘若生活中再次遇到这些单词的话不仅可以加深印象,长期积累下来可以有效记忆很多雅思口语常用的词汇,不仅利用日常生活节省了时间,也提高了单词的记忆周期并形成长期记忆。

[English]如何应对电话英语面试?
hjx_221 发表于 2011-2-18 19:16:56

如何应对电话英语面试?
英国总领事馆文化教育处 Sometimes companies will ask you for a telephone interview before a face to face one. This is used to narrow down the number of applicants and is especially true in the following cases. When candidates have to travel a long way, in this way the company can cut down on travel expenses. When there are a lot of candidates and when CV screening may not be sufficient; personality may be a key factor in this kind of job. Finally when the job you’ve applied for involves a lot of talking to people on the phone. 有时候,公司会在面对面面试之前,和你进行一次电话面试,这是为了缩小申请者的范围。进行电话面试,也有以下几个原因:当申请者距离面试地点很远的时候,公司用电话面试的方式可以减少旅途上的开支;当申请者数量太多的时候,通过简历来筛选实在不充分;当个人性格是工作要求的重要指标的时候,电话面试也是判断申请者是否适合的好方法;最后一点可能原因就是,当这份工作需要你经常接听电话。 If you are calling them, you should have a specific time. Be punctual and call at the precise time. Too early shows you are over enthusiastic and too late shows lack of interest. If you can’t get through, leave a message with the receptionist to show you called at the right time. If they have said they will call you then they might do it at any time. Because of this you need to be ready for a phone interview at a moment’s notice; preparation is vital. Firstly find out as much as you can about the company and the job. Then make a note of any questions you want to ask and have a note book and pen ready along with a copy of your CV. 在你打电话给公司,进行面试之前,要确保你有充足的时间。记住要守时,按照公司要求,准点打电话。过早会显得你过于热情,太迟会让人觉

假如你的职业不是非常完美 不妨放松心情,花些时间了解自己。随着我们越来越清楚自己是谁,那么也就更加容易找到我们到底想做什么。 In the new movie 'Up in the Air,' Anna Kendrick stars opposite George Clooney as Natalie Keener, an ambitious new college graduate who takes a job at a company whose business is to fire people.
在最新影片《在云端》('Up in the Air')中,安娜•肯德里克(Anna Kendrick)与乔治•克鲁尼(George Clooney)演对手戏。她饰演娜塔莉•基纳(Natalie Keener)──一位刚刚在一家替其它企业裁员的公司谋到一份职位的充满抱负的大学毕业生。 Natalie quickly gets to work developing a videoconferencing system that saves the company millions by performing terminations online. While on a cross-country trip to learn the ropes, however, Natalie is shaken by the emotional implications of her prized job and quits.
娜塔莉很快就适应了新工作,并且通过开发一种视频电话会议系统,可以在网上炒人鱿鱼,从而帮她所在的公司节省了数百万美元的资金。然而,在一次为熟悉业务的全国旅行中,她为自己本来引以为傲的这份工作给别人的情感带来的重大影响感到震惊,并且最终提出了辞呈。 These days, many people -- young and old -- are experiencing a career-life crisis, asking: 'What do I do when I realize my dream job isn't so wonderful after all?'

[English]时下流行的英语与人打招呼方式
hjx_221 发表于 2011-1-21 9:19:18

时下流行的英语与人打招呼方式    跟人见面第一句肯定要打招呼,如果你还停留在"Hello?" "How are you?" "How do you do?"的层次上,那你可能要听不懂美国人说话了。 美国人喜欢说的是: - How are you doing? - I'm doing good. How are you doing 这句话运用的最“出神入化”的要算是老友记里的Joey,他每次见到美女都会跟人家搭讪说“How are you doing.” 类似的问好方式还有: How's everything going? Howdy! What's up? 这几句话都相当于“你怎么样?”“你好吗?”但如果细究,第一句似问对方最近一切是否顺利;第二句据说是从How do ye? 这句19世纪初的问候语简化而来;而第三句则侧重问对方最近有没有什么新鲜事,但实际也就是打招呼。 回答可根据情况,比如答good、 not so good、okay 等。还有人说 Just hanging in there,意思是“就那么将就着,混呗!”这种说法挺形象,hang指悬在空中吊着,的确是在那儿将就着。此说法于上世纪60年代在嬉皮士中盛行。有些语言学家认为,这个说法最早源于体育界,用来鼓励弱队,坚持下去。如:Don't give up. Hang in there. (别泄气,坚持下去。) 美语的道别方式也五花八门,最常见的有: So long! Have fun! Break a leg! 后两句用在知道对方去聚会或旅行时,有“祝你玩得尽兴”的意思。尤其是最后一句,有“祝你好运的意思”,此说法源于演艺界,艺人们在首演时忌讳说“Good luck”,所以反话正说,有点像前些年中国南方时兴的恭维话,“不要太漂亮哦”之类的,而绝不是咒人把腿摔断。

[English]拒绝的艺术
hjx_221 发表于 2010-12-15 15:43:03

拒绝的艺术(透视你的工作) 有时候被赋予了太多任务会使人感觉飘飘然.这意味着人们认为你有责任心、很可靠,并且你总会圆满地完成工作。但是当他们分配给你太任务,你有什么回应呢?当他们多数事情都过于依赖你,你又有什么对策呢?如果你在以上两个问题中皆回答以“好的,同意”,你就要学学说“不”的艺术。
Sometimes it feels flattering to be the go-to person for most tasks.  This shows that people think you’re responsible, dependable, and you deliver good work.  But what do you do when they give you too many tasks for you to handle?  What if they depend too much on you for most things?  If you answered “yes” to either question, you need to learn the art of saying “No”.
 
学会说“不”的好处:
•你拥有了自己空闲的时间——这对于超负荷工作的你来说尤为关键。
•你可以专注于自己觉得真正重要和有兴致的项目。
•其他人也会学到如何完成一些他们想让你做的任务。这将为每人提高效率创造了办公环境。
•你减少了别人下次以同样理由麻烦你的机会。
•最最重要的是,你摆出了有选择权利的主张,这样你就不会被逆来顺受地对待。
The Benefits of Saying “No”
You get to free up your time -  especially important if you feel overworked.
You can focus on the projects that are truly important or exciting to you.
Other people will have to learn how to accomplish some of the tasks they want you to do.  This will result in a more productive office environment for everyone.
You decrease any chances of people bothering you for the same request later.
Most importantly, you get to assert your power of choice and people won’t treat you like a doormat. 何时说“不”?
•如果你没有得到应有的报酬时。
•如果你情愿自己支配这段时间时。
•如果你被分派的任务正好是你的弱项时。
•如果你对项目没有足够激情时。
•如果,你的胃在分配任务的那以刹那突然痉挛了一下,

[English]“得到”的多种表达
hjx_221 发表于 2010-12-2 7:36:36

“得到”的多种表达     学习是为了得到知识,获得文凭呢,还是赚取金钱呢?是不是所有的“得到”都用get呢?其实,不同的东西有配对不同的“得到”。我们不妨一起研究一下。
    原文:以前的功课也许有一大部分是为了这张毕业文凭,不得已而做的,从今以后,你们可以依自己的心愿去自由研究了。(出自 胡适先生的《不要抛弃学问》Never Give up the Pursuit of Learning ) 译文:You have perhaps finished your college courses mostly for obtaining the diploma, or, in other words, out of sheer necessity. However, from now on you are free to follow your own bent in the choice of studies. “为了这张文凭”这里译为for obtaining the diploma,这里加了一个obtaining,“为了‘获得’这张文凭”。我们来总结一组关于“得到”的近义词。 acquire   vt. (尤指通过努力)取得,获得;学到;开始占有;开始具有
多指经过本身的努力逐步获得才能,知识,荣誉和习惯等,也可用于对财物等的获得,该词强调“一经获得就会长期持有”的含义。 acquire knowledge 获得知识
acquire a good knowledge of English by careful study 通过用心学习获得很好的英语知识
It is through learning that the individual acquires many habitual ways of reacting to situations.
正是通过学习,个人才得以获得应付各种情况的习惯做法。
His brow has acquired its first wrinkle.
他的额头已出现第一条皱纹。 attain   vt./vi. 达到;获得;到达
正式用词,多用于庄重的场合,主要指经过不懈的努力获得未曾预料到的结果;达到某一目标、重要的目的或得到珍贵的东西。
The salesperson attained his sales goal for the month.
这名销售员完成了当月的销售目标。
He has attained the age of ninety.
他已达90高龄。
The scientist attained great fame by a new discovery.
那科学家由于一次新发现而出了名。 obtain   vt. 得到,获得

[English]可以救命的“关怀短信”
hjx_221 发表于 2010-11-19 11:29:28

可以救命的“关怀短信” Text Message Outreach Improves HIV Patients' Outcomes You’ve got a text message. You open it up. “How are you?” it asks. That seems like an almost throw-away question. But that simple message once a week, made HIV-positive recipients significantly more likely to take their medicine and remain healthy. The study, conducted in Kenya, was published in The Lancet.
你打开一条收到的短信,上面写着:“你最近好吗?”。这似乎只是一句漫不经心的问候,但每周发一条这样的短信,却可以让收到短信的艾滋病人乐于接受药物治疗保持健康。这项研究在肯尼亚进行,已发表在《柳叶刀》杂志上。 Researchers at the University of British Columbia enrolled 538 patients between 2007 and 2009. Half the patients received the weekly text message, and were asked to respond within 48 hours. They could text back either “doing well” or “have a problem.” Clinicians were then able to follow up with people who had a problem or didn’t respond.
英国哥伦比亚大学的研究人员于2007到2009年期间招募了538位接受测试的病人,其中半数病人每周都会收到这样一条短信,而且研究人员要求他们在48小时内回复。他们可以回复“很好”或者是“出了点问题”,然后临床医生就可以进一步观察了解哪些回复“有问题”以及不回复的病人。 The texts weren’t medicine reminders, they were just to let the patients know that someone was thinking about them. Apparently it worked—study participants said they felt like someone cared. And that may have helped them take care of themselves. Because the ones who received the texts were 12 percent more likely than the nonrecipients to have undetectable levels of the virus a year after being infected. Which means that the simple, friendly outreach of a text message can save lives.<

[English]生命的十一种感动
hjx_221 发表于 2010-11-15 16:40:01

生命的十一种感动   

It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.
只有付出的爱是痛苦的,但比这更痛苦是爱一个人却没有勇气让那人知道你的感情。

A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you,only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
生命中令人悲伤的一件事是你遇到了一个对你来说很重要的人,但却最终发现你们有缘无份,因此你不得不放手。

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with,never say a word,and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.
最好的朋友就是那种能和你促膝而坐,彼此不说只字片语,分别时却感到这是你有过的最好的一次交流!

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
的确只有当我们失去时才知道曾拥有的是什么,同样,只有当我们拥有了才知道曾经失去了什么。

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,an hour to like someone,and a day to love someone- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
迷上某人只需一分钟,喜欢上某人需要一小时,爱上某人则要一天,然而,忘记某人却是一辈子的事情。

Don't go for looks;they can deceive. Don't go for wealth;even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
别倾心于容貌,因为它具有欺骗性,也别倾心于财富,它也会消散,倾心于那个能带给你笑容的人吧,因为一个笑容能使漫漫长夜如白昼般明亮。

胡萝卜、鸡蛋和咖啡

   A daughter complained to her father about her life and how things were so hard for her ,She did not know she was going to make it and want to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling .It seemed as one problem was solved a new one arose.
    有一个女孩向她父亲抱怨她的生活,她觉得凡事都很艰难,不知该怎样挺过去,想放弃。她厌倦了不断的抗争和奋斗,似乎一个问题刚刚解决,另一个问题马上呈现。

      Her father, a cook ,took her to the kitchen ,He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire .Soon the pots came to a boil. In one he placed carrots, in the second he placed eggs, and in the last he placed ground coffee beans. He led them sit and boil, without saying a word.
      她的父亲是个厨师,他把她带到了厨房。他在三个壶里分别装满了水,然后放到高温的火上烧。很快,壶里的水被煮开了。他往第一个壶里放了些胡萝卜,往第二个壶里放了几个鸡蛋,在最后一个壶里放了些磨碎的咖啡豆,然后,一句话也没说,他由着水把它们煮沸。

      The daughter sucked her teeth and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. In about twenty minutes he turned off the burners, He fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them a bowl. Then he ladled the coffee out and placed it in a mug. Turning to her he asked," Darling, what do you see?"

[English]从裤腰看男人

从裤腰看男人 Life has many ups and downs - and so does a gentleman's waistband.
生活一直有高低起伏——男士的腰带也是这样。 The way he wears his trousers is directly linked to his age, researchers claim.
研究人员表示,一个男人穿裤子的方式是和年龄直接相关的。 Boys under the age of 12 wear their trousers around their natural waist - because most of their clothing is bought for them by their parents.
12岁以下的小男孩,裤腰差不多就在自然腰身那里——因为他们大部分的衣服都是父母为他们买的。 As they enter their teenage years, waistbandsplunge a full five inches towards the apex of the hips as a sign of rebellion, a survey suggests.
一项调查显示,青少年时期,男孩的裤腰整整下降了5寸,直到臀部上方,是一种叛逆的象征。 They plummet to below the hips at the age of 16 as young men imitate rappers and gangsters by letting the crotch of their jeans dangle around their knees, with several inches of underpant on show.
16岁的时候,裤腰下落到臀部以下,年轻人为了模仿饶舌歌手和不良少年,让牛仔裤的裤裆部分下垂到膝盖那,而上面露出几寸内裤出来。 The study found that waistbands slowly begin to creep up an inch or two as a man leaves his teenage years behind and enters the workplace.
研究发现,当男人告别青春期,进入职场时,裤腰开始一寸两寸地慢慢往上升。 By the age of 27, a chap of average build will probably wear his waistband actually around his waist.
27岁正常体格的男人,裤腰差不多就在自己腰处。 But at 39, it begins to rise again and by 45 it will be at least two inches above.
到了39岁,裤腰又往上升了;45岁的时候已经在腰部上方两寸处了。 This figure increases significantly past 50 to a peak of five inches by 57. This is just seven inches below the armpits.
50岁之后,这个数字显著上升,57岁时达到最

[English]男人更不容易忘记旧爱

男人更不容易忘记旧爱 We too often define "romantic" in women's terms--sending flowers and cards, saving mementos and putting them in a box or scrapbook, gushing over chick romance movies, or listening to romantic songs all day.
我们通常用女性的方式定义“浪漫”——赠送鲜花和卡片,收集纪念品并且把它们放在小盒子里面或者做成剪贴板,对少女类的浪漫电影喋喋不休,或者整天听浪漫的音乐。 Men may not do these things, but many men do something more romantic than all that: they keep their love in their hearts forever.
男人们也许不会做这些事儿,但是许多男人做的事儿比这些更浪漫:他们会将爱人永远记在心里。 My survey of 3000 men and women worldwide who tried reunions with lost loves asked, "How long did it take for you to get over your lost love?" Responses from the men indicated that they took significantly longer to get over their lost loves than the women. Some of the men were not satisfied with the survey choices: the last choice listed was, "Over 10 years." Only men crossed out all the choices and wrote, "I never got over her!" While no doubt some women never got over their lost loves, either, only men wrote this comment on the survey.
我调查询问了3000个全世界的男女,他们正在试图与失去的恋人破镜重圆。“你们需要多少时间从失恋中恢复过来?”男人们的回答表明,他们需要的时间比女性明显要长。一些男人对我调查中的选项不满意:最多只有“超过十年”。只有男人划掉了所有的选项,然后写到,“我从来没有从她那儿恢复过来!”尽管一些女性也毫无疑问从未从他失去的爱人的哀伤中恢复过来,但是,只有男人写下了这种评论。 Adolescent boys are "not supposed" to cry over lost loves. But many of my male participants reported that, after their high school girlfriends broke up with them, they cried in private, every night, for months.
