Almost everyone will get hitched at one point or another in their life. Marriage isn't something that should be jumped into. It is a serious commitment that should be carefully thought through. These are some things to consider... 几乎每个人都会被生活中的某一点或其它事情栓住。婚姻不应是跳进去然后栓住你的那件事。婚姻是一个严肃的承诺,需要大家的深思熟虑。下面的问题应在婚前仔细考虑: * Do you love the person enough to stay with them forever? 你是否愿意和这个人永远在一起? * Do you like their In-Laws? Do they like you? 你喜欢对方的家人吗?他们喜欢你吗? * Do we have the finances to support each other? 你们彼此能够在经济上相互持吗? * Do we want kids? How many? 你们希望要孩子吗?如果要,希望要几个? * Where are we going to live? 你们婚后住在哪里? * Does this person have drug/alcohol issues? Is he/she a violent person? 你的另一半有过毒瘾或嗜酒的记录吗?他/她是一个有暴力倾向的人吗? These are very important things that need to be looked at before the "I do's" start flying around. More than half of the marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. Divorce is something that can ruin lives financially and emotionally. That is why before you tie the knot, you need to have a talk with your spouse and discuss what you are willing to sacrifice to be with this person. 你在开口说“我愿意”之前,需要好好想想这些重要的事情。美国有半数以上的婚姻是以离婚收场的。离婚既可以破坏一个人的经济状况也可以伤害一个人的感情。你应该在打好领带结准备进入教堂前与配偶讨论一下——你愿意为这个人作出多大的牺牲。 /200904/66086。

Last Post* for Britain's Card Habit?   One of Britain's few distinctive contributions to world culture may be doomed, according to a survey that suggests holiday postcards are being emailed and texted into extinction. More than half of the 1,000 holiday-makers interviewed said they had decided to send fewer cards, turning instead to their electronic rivals. A quarter of the respondents dismissed postcards as old-fashioned and slow to arrive. A further 14% admitted that thinking of something to fill the space was too challenging, compared with a call home. Although officially invented by a Hungarian, Emanuel Herrmann, in 1869, the idea of illustrated cards was taken up with most enthusiasm in Victorian Britain, joining Gothic architecture and landscape gardening as fields in which the country excelled. "If the British postcard did become extinct, we would lose for ever something of great importance to the nation," said Chris Mottershead of Thomson Holidays, which commissioned the poll. He was backed by Marie Angelou of Sussex University, who has investigated the importance of sending and receiving postcards. "Postcards are nothing like phone calls, instant texting and direct photo shots via the mobile," she said. "All these are useful, practical devices, but postcards offer something else, something additional that is not mundane and simply functional, but imaginative and personal. They can evoke the real atmosphere of your holiday in a way that nothing else can do. They're also for more than a moment--with some people adding them to collections built up over years and years." Postcard-collecting, or deltiology, is third only to coins and stamps in Britain's allied tradition of collecting things. The country's uniquely postcard-related achievements include the invention in 1902 of the "divided back". With the address taking up half of the writing area, brief postcard scribbles became the precursor to today's cryptic text messages.  一项调查显示,节假日明信片正在被电子邮件和手机短信赶向绝路,这意味着英国对世界文化为数不多的独特贡献之一可能遭到灭顶之灾。接受采访的1000名度假者中有一半多说自己已经决定少寄点儿卡,转而借助电子通讯工具来传情达意。1/4的受访者对明信片不予考虑,认为它又过时、到得又慢。此外,14%的人承认要想出点儿东西来填满卡上的空白实在太困难了,相形之下还是打个电话回家来得容易。带图画的卡片是在1869年由匈牙利人埃曼纽尔·赫尔曼正式发明的,但这个点子是在维多利亚时代的英国才得到了最热烈的欢迎,并与哥特式建筑、庭院设计一起成为了英国的强项。 汤姆森假日公司委托进行了此次调查,该公司的克里斯·特谢德说:“如果明信片在英国绝迹,我们就永远失去了一种对这个国家无比重要的东西。” 苏塞克斯大学的玛丽·安格鲁对收发明信片的重要性进行了研究,她也持特谢德的看法。她说:“明信片和电话以及通过手机瞬间发送的文字和照片完全不同。那些东西也很实用,但明信片会带给我们一些别的东西。它们不同寻常,也不只是有用,其中体现了想象力和个性。它们能带来真正的节日气氛,这是别的东西做不到的。 它们也不是转瞬即逝的事物——有些人会收藏它们,年复一年。”英国的收藏传统根深蒂固,而明信片是仅次于硬币和邮票的第三大收藏对象。英国在明信片方面有一些独特的成就,1902年发明的“背面分割明信片”就是其中之一。由于地址占据了一半的书写区域,明信片背后的文字变得简短而潦草,由此为今日含糊不清的手机短信开了先河。  Remarks:下次收到贺卡的时候,别忘了在心里说声谢谢——愿意花时间“想出点儿东西来填满卡上的空白”的人真的是越来越少了。   Notes:  *last post:尽头,末路。英国军队在夜间会吹两次熄灯号(post),之后灭灯就寝,因此last post的原意可能是“最后一次熄灯号”,引申为“末路”。 /200803/28897。

摘要:夹在电价上涨和全球变暖恶果之间的美国消费者在是否应关掉冷气的问题上很是挣扎。不知道他们会不会从玛丽莲·梦露的电影《七年之痒》里找到灵感,把内衣裤装在冰盒里,好随时给自己降降温;不过,其它所有能想到的办法都被他们拿来一试了。With electricity costs rising -- along with global-warming guilt -- consumers across the country are struggling to wean themselves from the A/C. It remains to be seen whether they'll take a cue from Marilyn Monroe in 'The Seven Year Itch' and stash their undies in the icebox. But they're trying just about everything else.In Thousand Oaks, Calif., Adina Nack keeps the thermostat at 28-- and lets her toddler dance around the house in a bathing suit, spritzing herself with cool water from a spray bottle. Cara Cummins, in Atlanta, turns on the air conditioner only when she's expecting guests. Otherwise, she makes do by snacking on watermelon cubes soaked in chilled bourbon.Because many power plants run on natural gas, which has shot way up in price, utilities in every region of the nation have imposed -- or are planning -- big rate increases this year, some approaching 30%.In response, nearly two-thirds of families are cutting back on air conditioning, according to a recent Associated Press-Yahoo News poll. They're buying ceiling fans and programmable thermostats; burning up hot afternoons in malls and movie theaters; and bombarding blogger Erin Huffstetler, who writes about frugal living, with questions about the merits of tinting their windows dark to block the sun.The wealthy are even putting windmills in their backyards. Southwest Windpower in Flagstaff, Ariz., installs residential turbines that can supply a third or more of a typical household's electricity. The cost: At least ,000.In Arizona, 50,000 customers of the Salt River Project utility have cut energy use by an average of 13%, thanks to a gizmo that lets them monitor their daily bill, so they can see exactly how much they save by bumping up the thermostat a few degrees. In Texas, Reliant Energy reports an 8% drop in per-customer energy use since 2005.The Department of Energy calculates that heating and cooling account for nearly half the energy used in a typical home. That's more than all the light bulbs, the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the hot-water heater and the washer and dryer -- combined. /200905/70254。

A lawyer's dog, running about unleashed, beelines for a butcher shop and steals a roast. Butcher goes to lawyer's office and asks, "If a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog's owner?" The lawyer answers, "Absolutely." "Then you owe me .50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today." The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for .50. Several days later, the butcher opens the mail and finds an envelope from the lawyer: 0 due for a consultation. 律师的,没有拴而到处闲逛,它来到一家肉店,偷走了一块烤肉。店主来到律师的办公室,问道“如果一条没栓的从我的商店里偷了块肉,我有权利从的主人那里要回损失吗?律师答道:“完全可以”,“那你欠我8.50美元,你的没栓而且今天从我的店里头了块肉”,律师什么都没说,马上给他写了一张票。一些天后,店主打开邮箱,发现一封来自律师的信,信上写道:咨询费250美元。 /201105/136506。

Is it really? Well, according to Dr. Mao over at Yahoo Health, this is quite true. He also presents some practical things that we could all do to help the environment and be healthier at the same time. Seeing as we have just recently celebrated Earth Day, this topic is quite appropriate, don’t you think? Let’s take a look at some of Dr. Mao’s suggestions.Less Plastic, More HealthLightweight, durable and versatile, plastic is everywhere in our modern world; this is bad news for the environment and our health.He lists down a lot of things at home which are made of plastic. This prompted me to look through some of my things and he is right! Heck, even this laptop I am using has a lot of plastic parts. So what’s bad about plastic?According to Dr. Mao, “many plastics release vinyl chloride and other harmful estrogen-like substances that can lead to cancer, birth defects, hormonal imbalance, and lung and liver disease.”He might be right or he might be overstating things a bit but it wouldn’t hurt to use less plastic.Some practical suggestions? Instead of using plastic containers as the default, why not use glass ones instead? I also like the wooden and ceramic variations as well.Let’s look at a few more things next time. 这是真的吗? 好,通过毛士在雅虎健康网上说的,这的确是真的,他也举了几个我们能够做的实际事情保护环境,同时这些事情更有益于健康.鉴于我们刚刚庆祝的地球日 ,这个话题是比较合适的,你不觉得吗?让我们看看毛士的一些建议吧.少一点塑料,多一点健康。轻便,耐用以及多功能的塑料在现代社会随处可见,这对我们的环境和健康非常不利。他列举了一些在家使用的塑料制品。这促使我审视一些我的东西,我发现他说的对!令我来气的是我的笔记本电脑也用了许多的塑料零件。那么,关于塑料有什么不好呢?毛士说许多的塑料能释放氯乙烯和其他的有害的的雌性激素,人吃了能够致癌,导致出生缺陷,激素不平衡以及肺病和肝。他说的也许对或者是夸张了一点,但这并不对少用塑料的人造成伤害。还有其他的一些实际的建议吗?,既然不用塑料容器是默认,为什么不用玻璃代替呢?我同样喜欢木制的和陶瓷替代品。 /200806/42591。

Feeling regret about having bought something is a very unpleasant sort of unhappiness. Even with my under-buying ways, I sometimes come home with something I didn't really need to buy. Stores use extremely clever strategies to winkle customers into making purchases. Here are some strategies to make sure you don't make purchases you regret: 买了东西又后悔是种非常不愉快的感受。即便像我这种“少买”的人,有时还是会买回一些不需要的。商店采用极其聪明的手段引诱顾客消费。下面这些方法能让你买了东西不至于后悔:1.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)   Love is a big theme for your vacation this summer. Find the love of your life while walking through the cobblestone streets of a Mediterranean island or while hiking a mountain. If you’re aly attached, plan something action oriented with your partner. Sitting on a beach all day won’t fulfill you as much as you might think it would. 爱情是白羊座在这个夏天的主题。 当你穿越地中海鹅卵石路时或是爬山徒步旅行时,会找到生命中的真爱。如果你已经有伴侣了,那就和她/他一起计划些户外活动。整天坐在海滩上不会像想象中那样让你满足。 /201107/143232。

Children Find Meaning In Old Family TalesWhen C. Stephen Guyer's three children were growing up, he told them stories about how his grandfather, a banker, lost all in the 1930s, but didn't lose sight of what he valued most. In one of the darkest times, Mr. Guyer says, when his grandfather was nearly broke, he loaded his family into the car and took them to see family members in Canada. The message: 'There are more important things in life than money,' says Mr. Guyer, of Littleton, Colo.The tale took on new relevance recently, when Mr. Guyer downsized to a small house from a more luxurious one. He was worried that his children, a daughter, 15, and twins, 22, would be upset. To his surprise, they weren't. Instead, their reaction echoed their great-grandfather's. 'What they care about,' Mr. Guyer says his children told him, 'is how warm are the people in the house, how much of their heart is accessible.'As parents cut budgets, many are finding family stories have surprising power to help children through hard times. Storytelling experts say the phenomenon reflects a growing national interest in telling tales, evidenced by a rise in storytelling events and festivals. New research bears out the value of family stories, linking teens' knowledge of them to better behavior and mental health.An Emory University study of 65 families with children ages 14 to 16 found kids' ability to retell parents' stories was linked to a lower rate of depression and anxiety and less acting-out of frustration or anger, says Robyn Fivush, a psychology professor. Knowing family stories 'helps children put their own experience in perspective,' Dr. Fivush says.The trick is telling the stories in a way children can hear. We're not talking here about the kind of story that begins, 'When I was a kid, I walked to school every day uphill both ways, barefoot in the snow.' Instead, choose a story suited to your child's needs, and make eye contact to create 'a personal experience,' says Sherry Norfolk, chairman of the National Storytelling Network, a Jonesborough, Tenn., nonprofit. 'You don't have to tell children what they should take from the story,' she says. 'They can intuitively understand what the moral is.'When Carla Freeman's daughter became anxious a few years ago about having to change schools, the Atlanta mother related her own childhood stories of switching to another school in her community. Her old friends dropped her and, at her new school, 'I was kind of an oddball' at first, she told her daughter. But Ms. Freeman bounced back and made new friends. She credits the stories with helping her daughter, now 12, develop resiliency and the ability to 'hold herself together' against challenges.A touch of humor helps. At Scott Prengle's Dallas home, his son Bobby, 17, has heard tales about his grandfather growing up in times so hard that his hungry schoolmates would devour apple cores left over from his lunch. As Bobby tapped a nearly empty salad-dressing bottle over his salad at dinner one evening, Scott laughed and invited him to do as his grandfather did: Put water in the bottle and shake it up, to use every last drop. Scott says his father's frugal habits 'drove us crazy, but the idea was that nothing went to waste.'While Bobby declined to water down his dressing, he says of his grandfather that 'I follow in his footsteps' in other ways, saving paper clips and rubber bands. And when Scott recently trimmed the family budget, he thought he saw an echo of his late father in Bobby, in the way he calmly accepted the loss of his oft-used gym membership.Even when you think your children aren't listening to your stories, Dr. Fivush says, they probably are. Thomas Pontes thought his children, 12, 14 and 16, shrugged off tales of his grandfather, an immigrant farmhand who worked his way up from living in a barn to owning a home. To Mr. Pontes, of Providence, R.I., the story shows 'the kind of optimism you need to pick yourself up from a field somewhere tending cattle' to cross the Atlantic, fueled solely by hope.But when I asked his daughter Katie, 16, about the stories, she not only remembered them, but said they've 'helped me become more appreciative of my life and how easy things are for me.' Even if kids don't seem to appreciate family stories, she says, in time they'll 'realize just how important they are.'From:http://chinese.wsj.com/gb/20090319/wvh081052.asp?sourceUpFeature /200903/65527。
