Last month, artist Aaron Chervenak drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Nevada to finally take the love for his smartphone to the next level by marrying it at a small wedding chapel. And yeah, in case you’re wondering, he even put a ring on it.上个月,艺术家亚伦查维纳克从洛杉矶驱车前往内华达去升华他的手机之恋,在一家小婚礼教堂里与手机结为连理,他甚至还为手机戴上了戒指。A study conducted by internet security giant Kaspersky found that a quarter of people ranked their smartphone as equally important to them as their parents. For a lot of us, it’s the last thing we interact with before going to sleep and the first thing we check when we wake up.网络安全巨头卡巴斯基的一项研究发现,有四分之一的人视手机与父母一样重要。对于我们多数人而言,睡前最后一件事与醒来第一件事都是查看手机。It’s with us pretty much 24/7. “We look to it for solace, to calm us down, to put us to sleep, to ease our mind, and to me that’s also what a relationship is about,” Aaron Chervenak said. So in a sense, my smartphone has been my longest relationship. ;手机一周七天、二十四小时不间断和我们在一起。“我们向手机寻求安慰,手机安抚我们、哄我们睡觉、放松身心,于我而言,感情就是这样的,”亚伦查维纳克如是说道。所以,某种程度上,手机一直以来都是我最长久的恋爱对象。“But a man-and-smartphone wedding wasn’t going to be the most orthodox ceremony in the world, so in order to get someone to marry him and his beloved handheld, Chervenak had to go to the place where bizarre weddings happen all the time – Las Vegas. He contacted the owner of The Little Las Vegas Chapel and he was not only ok with it, but genuinely excited.但人和智能手机的婚礼不会是世上最正统的,为了迎娶他挚爱的掌上设备,查维纳克去了,那里一直以来都举办各种怪诞的婚礼。他和小教堂主人取得联系,得到了准许不说,还真心激动不已。On May 20th, Arron put on his tuxedo, took his phone and drove to the The Little Las Vegas Chapel in his purple Cadillac to get married. The wedding ceremony was small but very emotional, and you could see the groom was a bit nervous when saying his speech and putting the ring on the phone.5月20日,艾伦穿上西装,带上手机、开着他的紫色卡迪拉克,前往小教堂结婚。婚礼仪式小型却脉脉含情。看得出新郎发表誓词和给手机带婚戒的时候有点点紧张。“It’s not yet legal to marry smartphones, but what I hope my wedding will do is to somehow act as a symbolic gesture to show just how precious our phones are becoming in our daily lives, and hopefully get other to ask the same question of themselves.” Chervenak said.”迎娶智能手机目前还不合法,但我希望我的婚礼可以表明手机在我们日常生活中是有多珍贵,有一定象征意义在,真心希望他人也可以问问自己同样的问题,“查维纳克说道。 /201607/452660

Play is a serious business. The pioneering developmental psychologist Lev Vygotsky thought that, in the preschool years, play is the leading source of development.Through play children learn and practice many basic social skills. They develop a sense of self, learn to interact with other children, how to make friends, how to lie and how to role-play.The classic study of how play develops in children was carried out by Mildred Parten in the late 1920s at the Institute of Child Development in Minnesota. She closely observed children between the ages of 2 and 5 years and categorised their play into six types.Parten collected data by systematically sampling the children's behaviour. She observed them for pre-arranged 1 minute periods which were varied systematically (Parten, 1933).The thing to notice is that the first four categories of play don't involve much interaction with others, while the last two do. While children shift between the types of play, what Parten noticed was that as they grew up, children participated less in the first four types and more in the last two - those which involved greater interaction.1. Unoccupied play: the child is relatively stationary and appears to be performing random movements with no apparent purpose. A relatively infrequent style of play.2. Solitary play: the child is are completely engrossed in playing and does not seem to notice other children. Most often seen in children between 2 and 3 years-old.3. Onlooker play: child takes an interest in other children's play but does not join in. May ask questions or just talk to other children, but the main activity is simply to watch.4. Parallel play: the child mimics other children's play but doesn't actively engage with them. For example they may use the same toy.5. Associative play: now more interested in each other than the toys they are using. This is the first category that involves strong social interaction between the children while they play.6. Cooperative play: some organisation enters children's play, for example the playing has some goal and children often adopt roles and act as a group.Unlike Jean Piaget who saw children's play in primarily cognitive developmental terms, Parten emphasised the idea that learning to play is learning how to relate to others. 玩耍是一项重要的事情.先锋发展心理学家Lev Vygotsky这么认为,在学前的几年里,玩耍时发展的头号来源.孩子在玩耍中学习和联系许多基本的社交技能.他们发展出自我意识,学习如何与其他的孩子互相接触,如何交朋友,如何说谎和角色扮演.在20世纪20年代后期,明尼苏达州儿童发展协会的Mildred Parten发表了玩耍对于儿童发展的经典研究.她密切观察了年纪在2到5岁的儿童并将他们的玩耍分为6个类型.parten收集到的数据通过系统抽样儿童的行为.她在预先安排的1分钟时间内观察到他们具有不同的系统性.要注意的是前四种类型的玩耍没有涉及到太多与他人的接触,然而后两者却有.Parten发现孩子在玩耍的类型中进行转换时,当他们渐渐长大,儿童参加前四种玩耍类型的减少而后两者增多 - 因为后两者有更多的互动.占有型玩耍:孩子相对稳定并表现出没有明显目的随意行为.一种相对罕见的玩耍类型.孤独型玩耍:孩子完全投入到玩耍中而似乎没有注意到其他的孩子.大多数出现在2到3岁的儿童中.旁观型玩耍:孩子对其他在玩耍的孩子感兴趣但不加入他们.可能会向其他孩子提出问题或与其交谈,但对于主要活动只是简单的旁观.类似型玩耍:孩子模仿其他孩子玩耍但并不主动加入他们.例如他们可能共用一个玩具.联合型玩耍:现在对彼此比他们玩的玩具更感兴趣.这就是第一种涉及到在孩子玩耍时需要更多社交互动的类型.合作型玩耍:一些组织加入到孩子的玩耍中,例如有目的的玩耍,孩子经常利用角色和假装是一个团队.不像Jean Piaget 在初级认知发展期间内所看到的孩子们玩耍类型,Parten强调学习玩耍的这个想法就是学习如何与他人交流. /200808/46207

How can you stay in shape on the road when you won’t have regular access to a gym, bicycle, pool, even a jogging trail?Once, after returning on a transpacific flight from a Christmas vacation, I planned to stay in Tokyo for two days.I arrived on December 30th and stayed out all night for New Year’s, checked out of the hotel after stumbling back in the morning, and then continued to be awake all day until an express 8-hour midnight train to Kyoto to look at some temples.Unfortunately, I was so exhausted after that train ride that I slept for the duration of my stay in a youth hostel near the train station, slurping ramen and watching DVDs in my few waking hours.The moral of the story? Don’t travel too hard.This is advisable for any number of reasons, including the danger of getting drained and unable to function at an optimum physical level.By forcing myself through all-nights and an unreasonable travel schedule, I not only ensured I would be unable to complete my itinerary, I also drained myself of the ability to do anything spontaneous along the way.But how to stay in shape on the road when you won’t have regular access to a gym, bicycle, pool, even a jogging trail? Here are 5 tips for keeping fit on the road.1. RunAlthough there may not be a trail, there’s always some place to run if you know where to look. Large lakes are your best bet for a paved, level path, but feel free to speed through the countryside at 5 mpm (minutes per mile, you rookies) and startle those just leaving the house.A useful website (better than Google maps, I think) can help you chart as-the-crow-flies distances across the globe: Gmaps Pedometer.Incidentally, if you don’t have room to pack a pair of running shoes and live near open fields, barefoot running is better for your bones and form. Just watch out for sharp objects.2. Play Ultimate FrisbeeFor some reason, ultimate clubs seem to be a global standard for expats. Naturally, there are other choices available to you, but none quite as widesp (probably because it’s a simple team sport requiring the least massive equipment).Reach out to your local expat community to inquire about meeting times.3. Find Fitness CentersGyms can be expensive no matter where you are, and chances are you don’t want to be tied to a six-or twelve-month membership.See if your area has a YMCA. If you’re in a small town, try to negotiate a decent per diem rate; better yet, make friends with the owner.Otherwise, it’s a better idea to save your money and effort: instead of bench presses, have someone sit on your back while you do pushups; bring a small hand weight with you for arm workouts; take advantage of your environment by rock climbing, kayaking, or doing martial arts…you get the idea.4. Sample Local FlavorCubicle life might be stable and comfortable, but now that you’ve chosen to travel, to break the mold, so should it be with how you decide to keep fit every day. Open your body to new possibilities.Tai Chi in the parks of Peking. Caber tossing in Scotland. Climbing the steps of Aztec temples and Egyptian pyramids (if you care to bribe the authorities).No one is saying you can’t return to a regular 90 minutes on the weight, 30 minutes of aquajogging, and 17.5 minutes of stretching – just seize what is available to you on the road.5. Stay Away From McDonaldsJust before I arrived in Japan, I weighed 200 lbs (in a good way… and yeah, a little fat too) and went to the gym regularly. Within a few months, I dropped down to 180 lbs and developed more lean muscle.Why? The Japanese diet is one of the healthiest in the world. If you’re passing through Narita Airport at some point during your Asian travels, take a moment to just look around. Notice anything unusual?There are hardly any obese people in Japan. This is in sharp contrast in many American airports. I believe the healthy Japanese diet is due to two differences in cuisine: smaller portion size and less butter and grease.With fewer familiar western-style dishes in Japan, I experimented with a variety of healthier foods and came to love the local cuisine.Bottom lineKeep track of your pace while on the road. For anyone who lives an active lifestyle, traveling for long periods of time isn’t always ideal.Once you’ve had a taste of what it means to be in shape and reach your physical peak – strength, high metabolism, stamina, speed, agility - you start to wonder how you could have lived any other way.What are your ideas for staying in shape while traveling?
