Two thirds of women prefer working for male bosses because they are better managers and less prone to moods, a study has suggested.一项调查显示,三分之二的女性更愿意为男上司工作,因为他们是更好的管理者,而且比较不会情绪化。Many female employees also like having a man in charge because they are "more authoritative" and "more straight-talking" than their female counterparts.许多女雇员也喜欢有一个男主管,因为他们“更权威”,而且比女主管“说话更坦诚”。Women rated men "tougher", "better at delegation" and also more likely to regularly dish out praise.女人对男上司的评价是“更坚强”、“更善于委派”,而且更能够经常性地给予称赞。And men were also hailed as being better decision-makers and having more grasp of the business overall than women do.另外,男人们还被认为是更好的决策者,相对于女人能更好地从整体把握行业情况。It also emerged four out of ten women who have female bosses believe they could do a better job than their immediate superior.那些有女上司的女职员中,百分之四十认为她们能比她们的直接上司干得更好。The study of 2,000 women in full or part-time employment asked whether they would prefer to have a man or woman as their immediate line manager.这项研究调查了2000名全职或兼职女雇员,问题就是她们更愿意自己的部门主管是男性还是女性。Some 63 per cent expressed a male preference, while only 37 per cent opted for a woman.63%的女雇员更希望自己的直接上司是男性,而37%的女雇员选择了女上司。The results also revealed one in six women who currently work under a woman is experiencing "underlying tension" between themselves and their boss.调查结果还显示,目前在为女上司工作的女雇员中,每六个人中有一个人跟上司之间存在“潜在的紧张关系”。A host of reasons emerged for the male preference including a feeling female managers felt threatened by other women at work.男性上司被青睐的众多原因包括女性管理者在工作当中会感觉到来自其他女同事的威胁。A failure to leave personal problems at home was also cited.女上司把个人问题带到工作中也是原因之一。Other issues included a lack of flexibility over leaving early or starting late.其他原因还包括女上司在早退或晚到的问题上缺乏灵活性。But despite the worries, female bosses did score highly on the more personal side of the manager/employee relationship.但是尽管有以上的忧虑,女性上司在管理者和雇员之间的关系中更人性化的方面得分很高。They were revealed as being approachable, more trustworthy and more compassionate in a member of staff's time of need.调查发现她们更加平易近人,更值得信任,而且在员工需要的时候更有同情心。 /200908/81471

  Summoning the courage, you finally land a date with the hot chick you’ve been lusting for. You show up at the door with flowers and candy, and think that you are about to score brownie points when she opens the door. I have news for you, buddy, because your date is probably thinking the exact opposite.If you’re going to ask a woman out on a date, have a plan. Women love that and women love confidence. Ask open-ended questions. Rather than saying, “Where are you from?” say, “Tell, me about the place where you grew up.” That will keep the conversation flowing. Men, you should still open doors and pull out a chair for your date. These chivalrous things still make a good impression: Plan the date near her place, not yours. And most importantly, pick up the check.Flowers and candy were once thought to be “romantic” or a “gentlemanly gesture.” That was also in the days of Leave it to Beaver. Times have changed, women have changed. Things that worked back then, just don’t work now. They don’t carry any merit, and in fact, they actually may hurt you. Let me tell you why.What you thought was such a sweet gesture on your part, just told the woman you are taking on a date a very different thing. To her, flowers and candy represent a wimpy token of appreciation in hopes of receiving her attention in exchange. They are unoriginal, lack creativity, and are just plain cheesy. You might get a fake smile in return, and maybe a hug if you’re lucky, but they will both lack sincerity. Strike ONE!Not only will they lack sincerity, but you have just lost any ounce of respect you were hoping to establish. Any ordinary fellow can pick up flowers, so you have to do something to set yourself apart from those other guys.Try something different. Think about every conversation that you have had with her. If you were listening, she probably told you more than enough about herself to give you a clue on her likes and dislikes.Where did you meet her? At a coffee shop? At a book store? At the mall? Bringing something of context to her will show that you not only are attentive, but are proactive about it. If you bumped into her at a book store, do you remember which section you were in? What she was ing? Pick up a book of the same author or topic for her. You can’t imagine how many brownie points that will earn you.And before you show up for your date, have something about the gift in mind that you want to talk about. Don’t think that her heart and affection will be yours upon receiving the gift. You have to know WHY you’re giving it to her, and be able to articulate it at the same time.In the book example, do a little research on the author. Find out what types of books the author writes. Maybe check out some editorial reviews that you can “borrow” to make it appear that you know what you are talking about. And it will show your date that you went out of your way to look up and research her interests.In her mind, if you get into something just because she is interested in it, that will show her you can express similar enthusiasm later down the road. And if she starts picturing the near future with you in it, that’ll do so much for the current date you are going on.Trust me, you’ll see more enthusiasm on her end, which will make for an engaging date for the both of you. And you know what that means…usually another date very soon.So, to summarize the key points of this article…1. NOOOOOOO flowers and candy. Did I get my point across?2. Be creative. Bring something of context.3. Research before you give her the gift. And have something articulate to say about it.4. Don’t make a second date while you’re still on the first date. 终于,你鼓起万般勇气,敲定要和你心仪已久的热门对象约会。你站在门口,手上拿着花和糖果,想象她一开门你就达阵得分。小伙子,我得告诉你,你的约会也许和你想象的恰好相反。如果你邀请女士和你约会,先要做计划。女人喜欢有计划和自信的人。问开放式的问题,比如说“谈谈你生长的地方”,要比问“你来自哪里?”要好的多。这样可以让谈话继续下去。男士们,你们应该为约会对象开门和拉椅子。这些体现风度的行为可以留下好印象:约会地点选在她家附近,而不是你家附近。最重要的是你买单。花和糖果曾经代表了“罗曼蒂克”和“绅士风度”。那已经过时了。时代改变了,女人也改变了。以前行的通的,现在行不通了。他们不会给你带来任何好处,事实上反而会给你带来负面效果。让我来告诉你为什么。在你看来这些是甜蜜的小动作,告诉对方你特别看重这次约会。对她来说花和糖果代表了希望获得她注意的小小表示。没有创意,缺乏创造力,再平凡俗气不过了。你得到的也许就是婉尔一笑,如果幸运的话也许是一个拥抱,但都缺乏诚意。一次打击!不仅仅是她缺乏诚意,你也失去了最后一点点你所希望建立的形象。任何人都能送花,所以你要做一些与众不同的事。试试做些不同的事。想想你和她谈过的话。如果你听进去了,也许她暗示过你很多她喜欢的和不喜欢的东西,多过她想告诉你的。你曾经在哪里碰到过她?咖啡店?购物中心?给她带点有隐含意义的东西表明你不仅细致而且积极。如果你曾和她在书店偶遇,你是否记得是在哪个区域?她在看什么?带上一本同样作者或话题的书,你无法想象这样可以得多少分。在结束约会前,脑海中想想你要谈论的礼物。不要认为她收到你礼物后会把心交给你或很爱慕你。你要知道你为什么送给她,并同时明确的告诉她。以书为例,小小研究一下作者。找出这个作者的写作风格。也许查查社评,你可以借此表明你知道你在说什么。这样向你的对象表明你已经寻找和研究过她的兴趣爱好。在她心里,如果你是因为她有兴趣而去学习某些东西,就表示不久你会和她在同一事务上倾注同样的热情。 一旦她将你规划在她不久的将来中,就会对你继续约会下去很有帮助。相信我,你可以看到她的热情,对你们两来说都是有意义的约会。你知道这意味着什么…通常不久就会有下一次约会。最后,总结文章的关键点。1. 千万千万不要带花和糖果。你理解了吗?2. 发挥创造力,准备一些有隐含意义的东西。3. 送礼物之前研究一下,要能实质上有话题的东西。4. 还在第一次约会的时候不要想第二次。 /200808/45960

  The 8,000 volunteers who will welcome international visitors to London 2012 have been issued with a 66-page instruction manual, covering everything from foreign etiquetteto uniform care and advice on dealing with journalists. But what of the visitors themselves? Could they not do with a manual outlining the customs, manners and practicalities of the islands they are visiting? We hereby present a simple guide to UK etiquette for the 2012 Olympics.  负责2012伦敦奥运会国际游客接待的8000名志愿者,收到了一份长达66页的指南手册,里面包含了大小事项,从国外礼节到着装细节再到如何和记者打交道。可是外国游客们的指南在那里呢?没有指南手册告诉他们即将游览的英伦三岛的习俗、礼仪和其他事项,他们能行吗?为了2012伦敦奥运会,我们下面就来简单介绍一下外国游客在奥运会期间的伦敦生存指南。  Welcome, and before we begin – please accept our apologies.Your four-hour nightmare wait at passport control should not be taken as a symptom of Britain#39;s contempt for foreigners. It is merely a symptom of a woefullack of spending on a key aspect of travel infrastructure in the run-up to a hugely important event. In other words, it#39;s the government that hates you. Don#39;t worry, they hate us too.  欢迎来到英国,不过在我开始介绍之前请先接受我们的道歉。你们在入境检查时等了4个小时的噩梦本不应该是英国轻视外国人的象征。这只反映了英国在一项如此重要的赛事来临时对旅游基础建设的投入严重不足。换句话说,是英国政府怠慢了你们。别不开心,政府对我们也不咋地。  Canadians:I#39;m afraid that while you are here you will be repeatedly mistaken for Americans and blamed for all sorts of stuff you had nothing to do with. Unless you can think of a quick and simple way to distinguish yourselves at a glance – flower in lapel? Saddle shoes? Maple leaf eyepatch? – then you are just going to have to suck it up.  加拿大人:到了英国,你们恐怕会一次又一次地被人误认为是美国人,还会因为那些和你们毫无关联的事情而备受指责。除非你能想出一种简便快速的办法,让人一眼就能看出你是加拿大人:在衣领上夹一朵花?穿马鞍鞋?戴枫叶图案的眼罩?然后你也就慢慢习惯,不再抱怨了。  Americans:While you#39;re here, why not pretend to be Canadian? Very few Britons can tell the difference, and it will allow you to rescue yourself from awkward conversations about the death penalty.  美国人:对于你们来说,干脆装成是加拿大人好了。英国人很难判断你们之间的区别,这样你们就可以避免卷入到关于死刑的尴尬谈话中了。  1. Under no circumstances should you ask your taxi driver how excited he is about having the Olympics in London this summer. It#39;s not that he will be reluctantor embarrassed to offer a personal opinion on the matter. That is not the problem at all.  无论在什么情况下都不要问出租车司机,对于今年夏天伦敦的奥运会有多么激动。不是说他会勉强或尴尬地发表个人意见,而是你根本就不该问这个问题。  2. Nobody here can answer any questions you have about fencing. Google it.  这里没有人能够回答你问的任何关于击剑的问题。还是去google一下吧。  3. Pay no attention to those bow-tied etiquette experts you sometimes see on CNN International, telling you how to behave while in Britain. These people are generally of dubiousprovenance, normally live in California and tend to peddle advice that is either irrelevant or out of date. For example, they will often say that Britons love queuing and are so fond of apologising that they will often say ;sorry; even when something isn#39;t their fault. In reality, Britons are just as likely to jump to the front of a queue and then punch the person behind them for coughing. It all depends on how muggy it is.  别理会那些出现在CNN国际频道里、告诉你英国行为规范的打领结的专家。这些家伙通常来历不明,自己住在美国加州,却试图提供一些要么不相干要么过时了的建议。比如说,他们通常会告诉你,英国人喜欢排队;喜欢说对不起,即使有时候并不是他们的错误。而事实上,英国人也喜欢插队,而且还会用咳嗽把排在他们后面的人也吓跑。这取决于天气有多闷热潮湿。  4. British people may seem to apologise a lot, but it doesn#39;t quite mean the same thing here. In the UK, ;I#39;m sorry; actually means either a) I didn#39;t hear you; b) I didn#39;t understand you; or c) I both heard and understood you, and I think you#39;re an idiot.  英国人似乎总是喜欢道歉,但道歉的意义并不相同。在英国,“对不起”实际可能表示这几种意思:(1)我没听清你说什么;(2)我没明白你的意思;(3)我听到了你说的,也明白你的意思,可我觉得你是个白痴。  5. Britons love bleak[/w] humour: that#39;s why all the hire bikes are branded with the name of a bank currently being investigated for fixing interest rates. It#39;s supposed to be funny.  英国人喜欢冷幽默:这就是为什么所有出租的自行车都刻着同一家的名字,而这家正因为固定利率而在被调查阶段。他们也许觉得这很有趣吧。  6. London#39;s bike hire scheme couldn#39;t be simpler, by the way: just go up to the terminal at any docking station, pay by card and take away one of our so-called ;Boris bikes;. When you#39;re done with it, simply throw it into the nearest canal. They#39;re disposable!  顺便说一句,伦敦的自行车租赁制度再简单不过了:走到任何一个租车点,刷卡付费就可以带走一辆自行车。当你使用完毕时,把车丢在附近的河里就行。这些自行车可以随意处理!  7. Do not ask a policeman the best way to get to the West End or how to use an Oyster card. He wants to help, but he#39;s from the West Midlands.  别问警察怎样去伦敦西区最快,也别问他如何使用牡蛎交通卡。他也很想帮你,不过他是从西米德兰兹郡来的。  8. Please aid the Olympic authorities and organisers by demonstrating at all times that you are not a terrorist. Do not perspire, take off your shoes, smile in a weird way while texting someone, or point and shout: ;Hey! Look at all those missiles on that roof over there!; In fact, if you#39;re not using your hands for anything, it#39;s probably best if you keep them in the air where everybody can see them.  请时刻注意明你不是恐怖分子,这样就是对奥运组委会和主办方最大的帮助。别出汗,别拖掉鞋子,别在发短信时保持诡异的微笑,别指着某处大喊:“嘿!看那边房顶上的飞过的导弹!” 事实上,如果你的手闲着没事儿,最好能放在让所有人都能看见的地方。  9. We here in the UK want nothing more than to provide you, our guests, with a fantastic experience this summer, combining the best in international sport, brilliant facilities, fantastic entertainment and a cultural legacy that draws on centuries of excellence in art and architecture. If you ended up with four tickets for the wrestling at the ExCel Centre, well, better luck next time.  亲爱的贵客们,我们希望英国能为你们贡献一个美好的夏天,这个夏天包括了顶尖的国际赛事、先进的设施、有趣的、以及汇集了几个世纪的艺术建筑精华的文化遗产。如果你最终只收获了四张卓著中心的摔跤比赛门票,好吧,祝你下次好运。 /201207/191861【中英对照】Forty percent of US workers have dated an office colleague, with 31 percent of them going on to marriage, according to a survey released on Tuesday.本周二公布的一项调查显示,美国40%的职场人士都曾与自己的同事约会过,其中31%的人最终走向了婚姻殿堂。Ten percent work with someone they would like to date and 18 percent have dated a co-worker twice or more at some time in their careers, the office romance survey for online job website CareerBuilder.com showed.这项为CareerBuilder.com招聘网站开展的办公室恋情调查显示,10%的人表示自己想与某个同事约会,18%的人称自己在职业生涯中曾与同事约会过两次或两次以上。Those eyeing a co-worker was skewed between the sexes, with 14 percent of men but just 5 percent of women saying they would like to date a colleague.同时,在这个问题上还存在性别差异,14%的男性表示愿意与同事约会,而仅有5%的女性愿意这么做。Of those who dated a co-worker in the last year, a third said it was someone with a more senior position in the company.

  Although interacting with girls seems like an intimidating endeavor to many guys, adhering to certain principles allows it to be a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.尽管对很多男生而言与女生交往简直是噩梦,但遵循以下几个简单的原则将会给你带来很多愉快的体验。Steps操作步骤:1.Be yourself.1.做你自己。It#39;s important to maintain self confidence by being yourself around girls. If you adopt an alternate personality to attract girls, you will eventually be weighed down with the feeling that your true self isn#39;t good enough. It may help to develop and improve your social skills, but any girls that don#39;t appreciate you for who you are don#39;t deserve your attention.在与女生们交往的过程中做好自己、拥有自信是非常重要的。如果你改变自己的个性去吸引她们的话,到头来你会感到很失落——因为真实的你差劲到无法吸引女生。做你自己可以培养你的社交技巧,任何不欣赏你的女生都不值得你关注。2.Respect all girls equally.2.平等地尊重每个女生。You stand a much better chance of making a good overall impression if you treat girls that don#39;t interest you just as nicely as those that do. This doesn#39;t mean that you need to talk to or flirt with every girl, but don#39;t ignore them or treat them dismissively. Don#39;t talk to a girl about other girls#39; attractiveness; it#39;s distasteful and can degrade the girl#39;s opinion of herself. You generally shouldn#39;t talk about past relationships you#39;ve had, or other girls that interest you; it detracts from building a new relationship.如果你将恐龙和美女一视同仁的话,这会给她们带来深刻的印象,你也会因此得到更好的机会。这并不意味着你得同每个女生闲扯或调情,但请不要无视恐龙们的存在,更不要去鄙视她们。不要在一个女生面前谈论其他女生的魅力,这会让她们感到厌恶,甚至看轻自己。通常来讲别扯你的那些风流往事,或其他的女友候选人,这对建立新的关系是非常不利的。3.Make eye contact.3.眉目传情。Many girls like it when you can#39;t take your eyes off them, but not when you#39;re staring at their boobs. Although there are some girls that may enjoy such attention, you won#39;t offend anyone by focusing on her face instead. Do not ogle her. Just remember to use discretion and show proper respect.很多女生喜欢看到男生的目光黏在自己的身上,但是不要老盯着她们的胸部看,尽管有个别女生确实有此嗜好,你还是盯着她们的脸比较好,但可别用色迷迷的眼神。记住目光中应该透露出你慎重以及尊敬。4.Make them feel special.4.让她们感到很特别。Girls like it when you#39;re forward but not in a creepy way. Smile at her in a way that#39;s clear, friendly, and/or playful. If you feel compelled to honesty, you can offer a sincere compliment. For example, you could say ;Did anyone ever tell you that you have a beautiful smile?; Eyes are another good one-they#39;re not the easiest thing to notice, and it shows you were looking at her face. Select something good that is reserved for her only; it will make her feel wonderfully special, admired, and beautiful.女生们很欣赏你的勇敢,但不要吓到她们。单纯友好甚至戏虐的微笑都是可以的。如果你希望能坦诚一些,那么可以诚挚地恭维一下。例如,你可以说,“有人说过你的微笑很迷人吗?”眼睛也是个不错的选择,即使你不容易注意到,这也可以暗示你在认真地看她的脸。选择她独有的特点切入,这会让她感到拥有特别的感受,觉得自己很美丽,受人爱慕。5.Be a gentleman.5.做一个绅士。Girls love guys that are polite and courteous. It#39;s just a matter of doing simple things like holding doors open for them and being respectful in other ways. Some claim chivalry is dead, but if you believe that, then you#39;re going to have some problems getting a girl#39;s interest.女生们喜欢那些彬彬有礼的男生。做到这一点也很简单——帮她们开门或者以礼相待。某些骑士时代的礼节已经过时,如果你坚持使用,这会让她们感到很诡异,反而会弄巧成拙。6.Make her laugh.6.逗她开心。Being funny is one of the most attractive qualities a guy can have, and if you#39;re not ;handsome;, a girl will usually overlook that! If you#39;re not goofy but you have a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor, use that. Just watch your timing and try not to be too goofy, or you may make a fool of yourself. It#39;s okay to tease her a little, but generally not about her appearance.风趣是每个男生都应具有的品质,相比于“帅气”,女生们更重于此。如果你智商不低,而且还拥有独特的幽默感,那么尽管拿来用吧。把握时机也很重要,可以揶揄对方,但是原则上不要拿她的相貌来开玩笑。7.Notice when you#39;re having a conversation and she seems uncomfortable, change the subject.7.注意碰到女生不喜欢的话题时,要转换话题。Watch her movements, if she#39;s shifting her weight a lot and not making eye contact, chances are she#39;s uncomfortable.留意她的举动,如果你发现她们频繁地变换姿势或者与你没有眼神的交流,那就表示她们对当前的话题感到不适。8.Recognize that physical contact should be limited by the state of your relationship.8.肢体接触的范围应依当前所处的关系而定。Acquaintances-A handshake when introducing yourself is probably a reasonable limit for a first meeting. You can also subtly brush your hand against her hand or arm.初识。初次见面可以握握手。你的手可以轻轻地划过她的手或胳膊。Casual Friends or Prospective Dates-You could try something like touching her hair or playfully poking her in the side and asking if she is ticklish. This is generally considered flirting, and if a girl doesn#39;t appreciate your advances, it#39;s best to apologize and refrain from making similar contact.临时的朋友或约会预备队员。摸摸她的头发,或者挠挠痒。这些会被认为是调情,如果对方不喜欢,立即道歉并克制一点。Good Friends-It is generally acceptable to give friendly hugs to girls that you know fairly well, even if you aren#39;t a couple. Just be sensitive to the girl#39;s feelings about it; pressuring her to hug you will make her uncomfortable.好朋友。如果你们是挚友,即便不是夫妻,友善的拥抱也是可以的。但是请留意一下她的感觉,别压得她太难受。Boyfriend/Girlfriend-When you#39;ve grown closer, you can hold her hand or wrap your arm around her shoulders or waist when you#39;re walking together. With her consent, you can also kiss her.男女朋友。随着双方关系的日益亲密,一起走的时候,你可以牵她的手,搂她的腰。征得她的同意后,你还能吻她的唇。Tips友情提示:Be the same around her and your friends.同性异性朋友面前一个样。Never use the words ;sexy; unless it#39;s in a joking fashion.除了开玩笑,“性感”等词儿慎用。Don#39;t ever tell her that she looks bad.永远别说她看起来很糟。Don#39;t panic if you do something embarrassing. A lot of girls find that really cute.不小心做了囧事,别紧张,很多女生会认为这很可爱。Warnings警告:Do not make sexist jokes.别讲有性别歧视的笑话。Don#39;t focus too much on one girl if she isn#39;t enjoying the extra attention. She may get annoyed, and it will likely hurt your relationship.如果女生不想你们之间发生额外的关系,那么不要对她表现出特别的关注。一旦激怒了她,那么很可能会损害你们现有的关系。Get to know her friends and be friends with them. This will show her that you#39;re nice and friendly.与她的女朋友们适当接触,并也和她们成为朋友。这会显示你的亲和以及友善。 /201207/190007

  Researchers are warning that sleeping pills may increase the risk of early death more than five-fold, the Daily Mail reported.据英国《每日邮报》报道,研究人员警告,用安眠药可以使过早死亡的几率增加5倍。A study, conducted by researchers at the Jackson Hole Center for Preventive Medicine in Wyoming and the Scripps Clinic Viterbi Family Sleep Center in California, found the risk was greater at higher doses.美国怀俄明州杰克森霍尔预防医学中心和加州斯克里普斯诊所维特比家庭睡眠中心的这项研究表明,用安眠药的剂量越大,越危险。Those taking the lowest doses ; four to 18 pills a year ; had a 3.6 times higher risk of dying compared with non-users.一年用4-18片少剂量安眠药的人比不用药物的人,其死亡几率增加了3.6倍。Those taking 18 to 132 pills a year had a 4.4 times higher risk of dying, while those on more than 132 pills a year were 5.3 times more likely to die. 一年用18-132片安眠药的人比不用的人,死亡几率增加了4.4倍;而一年用超过132片安眠药的人,其死亡几率增加了5.3倍。This group was also 35 percent more likely to develop a cancer.那些用高剂量安眠药的人得癌症的几率也会增加35%。Experts say while the findings highlight a potential risk, proof of harm is still lacking.专家表示,虽然该研究指出用安眠药有潜在的风险,但仍缺乏对身体有害的据。They say patients should not be alarmed nor stop their medication, but if they are concerned they should discuss this with their doctor or pharmacist.专家称,病人不必慌张,也不用立刻停药,但是如果他们担心,可以咨询医生和药剂师。The drugs include benzodiazepines such as temazepam and diazepam, newer sedative hypnotics zolpidem, zopiclone and zaleplon, and barbiturates and sedative antihistamines.这类具有安眠作用的药物包括苯二氮平类药物,比如羟基安定和安定,新一代催眠镇静药唑吡坦、佐匹克隆和扎来普隆、巴比妥类药物和镇静剂抗组胺。 /201203/175059。


  Thirsty? You might want to consider a steaming cup of tea. In a survey of existing research published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the authors report that not only does tea rehydrate and quench your thirst as well as water does, it comes with additional health benefits too.   口渴吗?或许你该考虑沏壶茶,根据一片发布在欧洲权威医学杂志的文章称,茶水除了和白开水一样能解渴,同时还富含有有益健康的元素与物质。   “Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water,” Dr. Carrie Ruxton, a nutritionist and the lead author of the study told the B. “Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants so it's got two things going for it.”   文章作者凯莉-鲁克斯顿士告诉英国广播电台,“茶水不仅补充了因体液消耗流失的水分,其中所含有的抗氧化剂也一道被人体吸收,可以说是一举两得。”   Those antioxidants — specifically flavanoids — can reduce damage done to cells through everyday living, so researchers believe these same compounds may help to ward off heart attacks and some types of cancer.   茶叶中所具有抗氧化剂,特别是类黄酮这种元素,它有助于减少日常生活中对于细胞所造成的伤害,因此研究人员认为饮茶有利于减少心血管方面疾病发生的几率,同时还能提高对于某些癌症的抵抗力。   They found clear evidence that drinking three to four cups of tea a day can cut the chances of having a heart attack. Some studies suggested tea consumption protected against cancer, although this effect was less clear- cut.   科学家们倡导,每日饮上四杯茶,这样,罹患心脏病的风险将大大减少。另外有研究显示,茶有一定得抗癌性。 /201101/124230

  THERE was a time when economics was widely seen as a graph-strewn study of exchange rates, gross domestic product and the like. Tim Harford's 2005 bestseller, “The Undercover Economist”, was a book that has helped shift that perception by bringing the not-so-dismal science to a wider audience. Mr Harford's second book, “The Logic of Life”, stakes out similar ground. Once again he eschews chalkboard economics in favour of a er-friendly guide to the economics of everyday life. The result is a fascinating study of how society is shaped by hidden pay-offs and punishments. Compulsive gambling or inflated boardroom pay might seem like madness, but look closer, says Mr Harford, and you find a kind of logic. The author sees rational calculation everywhere—even, or perhaps especially, in matters of love. Romantic types might say they seek the perfect soulmate but the revealed truth is more prosaic. Marriages are market-based transactions, swayed by supply (what is available) as much as demand (what the heart desires). Men may prefer slim women and women favour tall men, but both will alter their demands in response to market conditions. Suitors settle for what is on offer now, even if plumper or shorter than the ideal, rather than hold out for the perfect partner. The book surveys shelf after shelf of the economics literature but in such skilful hands it does not feel like a dutiful trip to the library. Economists are often too beguiled by elegant theories, but Mr Harford wisely confines himself to ideas that have been carefully tested against real life. Only thorough research could discern that residents of high-rise buildings are more likely to be victims of crime, because stacked tenants make for poor monitors of the surrounding streets. Even the excellent chapter on game theory has a practical hero: the card player, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, who applied its lessons to win the poker world championship in 2000. Mr Harford, who works at theFinancial Times, is an amiable guide for the non-specialist er, neither too lofty nor dumbed-down. The book's tone is breezy, but his command of the subject is such that even a well-schooled economist will discover much that is new. It is not a wonkish tome, but its broad policy prescriptions are clear enough. Since behaviour is governed by incentives, the way to achieve different outcomes is to alter the pay-offs carefully. One of the merits of “The Logic of Life” is its variety. Subjects range from the terrifying logic of “rational racism” to a cold calculus of divorce rates. If you want to know which poker hands to bluff with, why neighbourhoods with permanent residents have more road crossings or why digital communication makes the world spikier not flatter, Mr Harford's book provides some answers. And it does it all without an exchange-rate graph in sight. 经济学曾被普遍认为是对诸如汇率,国内生产总值等方面的一种图表研究。2005年,在畅销书籍《秘密经济学家》中,作者蒂姆"哈福德(Tim Harford)描述的不甚枯燥乏味的科学知识已开始在转变广大读者的此类看法。 哈福德先生的第二本著作《生活的逻辑》也同样在尝试改变读者对经济学的看法。在这本书中,作者秉承了前书的风格,绕开了生硬的说教,用读者喜闻乐见的方式介绍了日常生活中的经济学。作者在社会如何被隐性付和刑罚塑造成型上取得的研究硕果。读者对本书也是兴趣盎然。在书中,哈福德先生认为,强迫性或飞涨的董事会薪酬虽看似荒诞不经,但细究之下,读者将会从中得出其内在的逻辑。 作者认为理性的考虑是无处不在,甚至适用于情场,或许仅适用于情场。浪漫型的人士可能声称自己在寻觅完美无暇的红颜知己,然而,呈现的真相却十分平淡无奇。婚姻是基于市场的交易,但受供(现实中所有)求(内心中所需)两个因素的影响。男士可能更青睐身量苗条的女士,女士可能更仰慕身材颀长的男士,但双方会根据市场状况变更要求。求婚者可勉强地接受近在眼前的对象而不愿执着地追求完美伴侣,即使对方是身形丰腴或体格矮小,并远非理想。 本书参阅大量经济学文献,但作者娴熟的运用能力却使读者并不感到本书参考过大量书籍。经济学家往往过于沉迷优雅的理论,但哈福德先生却明智地只专注于现实生活精心考验的看法。只有通过研究可得出,高楼大厦中的居民更有可能成为犯罪活动的受害者,因为高处的住户更易成为周边街道穷困监视者攻击的对象。即使是介绍弈论的优秀篇章也会引用现实中的英雄做为例:玩牌人Chris “Jesus” Ferguson曾运用此理论在2000年世界扑克锦标赛中胜出。 任职于《金融时报》的哈福德先生是非专业读者的亲和向导,既不过于高傲,也不愚笨。本书基调轻快活泼,作者对主题的把握是如此娴熟以至那些受过良好教育的经济学家也会发现书中大多内容比较新颖。本书并非一部不可靠的大型书卷,但书中概括的政策处方已足够清晰。行为受激励控制,因此,达到不同目的的途径就在于对付的审慎取舍。 《生活的逻辑》的价值之一就在于书中题材的多样性。题材范围涉及到"理性的种族主义"这一可怕逻辑和关于离婚率的冷冰冰数字。哪位牌手在虚张声势,为何长住居民区有较多的道路交叉点,或者为何数字通信令世界变得更为复杂多变而不是顺利前进,如果读者对此感到好奇,不妨参阅本书。哈福德先生在书中提供了部分解答。在书中,汇率图表难觅影踪,却解决了所有问题。 /200809/47420
