There was a small boy living on a farm, he needed to get up bee sunrise every morning to start his chores and out again later to do the evening ones.During sunrise he would take a break and climb up on the fence. So in the distance he could see the house with golden windows. He thought, how great it would be to live there! And his mind would wander to imagine the modern equipment and appliances that might exist in the house. He then promised to himself, “ some day I will go there and see this wonderful place.”Then,one morning his father told him to stay at home and his father would do the chores. Knowing that this was the chance, he packed the sandwich and headed acrossed the fields towards the house with the golden windows.As the afternoon went on, he begin to realize how he misjudged the distance and something else was very wrong. As he approached the house, he saw no golden windows but instead a place in bad need of painting surrounded by a broked-down fence.He went to the tattered screen door and knocked. A small boy very close to his age opened the door. He asked him if he had seen the house with the golden windows. The boy said, “sure, I know!” And invited him to sit on the porch. As he sat there, he looked back from where he just came, where the sunset turned the windows on his home to gold. 791Room The FutureAt the age of ty-five,my usually well-ordered life became fraught with changes.After twenty-two years of working a major financial institution,a downsizing initiative and a major bank merger resulted in the elimination of over one hundred jobs,mine being one of them.My once secure future became a fallacy.However,I was one of the lucky ones.I was not a single parent,nor dependent solely on my income,but just like the other ex-bankers,I had become a disposable employee,and a statistician.My mantra has always been,“change is good,change is progress,”but when it affected my livelihood,I had to revise it to,“accept change and make the most of it.”From the beginning,I chose to look at this occurrence not as a mistune,but as a welcome opporty.I refused to become depressed or bitter;instead,I eagerly anticipated doing something new and different.Having a positive attitude made all the difference in the way I perceived the future.First,I decided to return to college and graduate,several decades later than I should have.Doing this at my age took more than a little courage.Not being a graduate had never held me back in my career with the bank,but now it was a personal goal I longed to achieve.With a little trepidation and a lot of determination,I registered evening classes,and became an adult student.Oral presentations were often required one class.I remember thinking that if I had known this beehand,I would have taken something else to achieve my required accreditation.By nature,I am a rather reticent individual,and speaking in front of people terrified me.As I stood in front of the other adults with whom I shared a common goal,my knees were visibly knocking,and my heartbeat almost audible.Somehow,I found my voice and squeaked out my presentation.The next time it was easier,and soon,I was starting to enjoy it a little.Later in the year,I even voluntarily interviewed a local reporter an English assignment,much to the amazement of my teacher.My confidence level soared.Suddenly I felt like I could accomplish anything.During this time,I realized that no matter what life throws our way,personal growth never stops.It comes from within,and needs only to be challenged in order to surface.It is entirely possible to step out of one's comt zone to learn something new. My experience of going back to school ended up being far more valuable than just acquiring a diploma.The second thing I did to improve my inner self was to reevaluate my life.It used to be filled with endless,and sometimes meaningless,events.Now,instead of working towards materialistic things and personal glorification,my heart and life are firmly entwined around people I care .Yes,having a fulfilling career is important,but it is no longer my reason being.When I rejoin the “rat race”,it will be on my terms,as nurturing my soul is my first priority.Having simplified my life,I am enjoying living now,instead of just existing to make a living.Is there life after banking?You bet there is.The loss of my job was responsible some positive changes in my life.Revisiting the past made room the future.As I contemplate the meaning of my mantra,“change is good,change is progress”,I realize that I have accepted the change,and am making the most of it.And,I have only just begun.The best is yet to come.口语中最常用到的50个成语(3) -01-7 19:: 来源: 1.

Gerrymander:重划选区 -01-7 00::7 来源: 今天谈的gerrymander沿用了刚讲过的混合组词法,即gerrymander(改划选区,又名"蜥蜴脚尾"现象)--Elbridge Gerry+salamander,在这个混合词组中Elbridge Gerry(杰里)曾任美国副总统(18-18),而salamander则是一种极其丑陋的虫子,形似蜥蜴二者不幸结合,生成了一个极不光的政治词汇Gerrymander被发明之前,该词的使作俑者杰里时任马萨诸塞州州长,为了能让他所在的民主党在议会选举中获胜,杰里使用packing(集中选票)和cracking(分散选票)两种手法重新改划选区"集中选票"指把持共和党的选民纳入原属该党候选人票仓的铁票选区,使共和党浪费掉很多选票;而"分散选票"则是把持共和党的同性质的选民分割成若干不同的选区,票数分散无法产生应有的当选人这种伎俩后被肖像大师Gilbert Stuart(吉尔伯特·斯图尔特)以漫画形式再现了改划选区后的行政区图,并把这种salamander(看似蜥蜴)形状的选区分布起名为"Gerrymander",而此种不光的选举操作行为也被成为"蜥蜴脚尾"现象举个例子,用英语解释一下什么是gerrymander:There are two principal strategies behind gerrymandering: maximizing the effective votes of supporters, and minimizing the effective votes of opponents("蜥蜴脚尾"现象的两种主要策略是:最大限度增加本党有效选票的同时,使对手的有效选票达到最小化) 选票 选区 现象 共和党

8Bacteria 8 Bacteria Bacteria are extremely small living things. While we measure our own sizes in inches or centimeters, bacterial size is measured in microns. One micron is a thousandth of a millimeter a pinhead is about a millimeter across. Rod-shaped bacteria are usually from two to four microns long, while rounded ones are generally one micron in diameter. Thus if you enlarged a rounded bacterium a thousand times, it would be just about the size of a pinhead. An adult human magnified by the same amount would be over a mile(1.6 kilometer) tall. Even with an ordinary microscope, you must look closely to see bacteria. Using a magnification of 0 times, one finds that bacteria are barely visible as tiny rods or dots. One cannot make out anything of their structure. Using special stains, one can see that some bacteria have attached to them wavy-looking “hairs” called flagella. Others have only one flagellum. The flagella rotate, pushing the bacteria through the water. Many bacteria lack flagella and cannot move about by their own power, while others can glide along over surfaces by some little-understood mechanism. From the bacteria point of view, the world is a very different place from what it is to humans. To a bacterium water is as thick as molasses is to us. Bacteria are so small that they are influenced by the movements of the chemical molecules around them. Bacteria under the microscope, even those with no flagella, often bounce about in the water. This is because they collide with the watery molecules and are pushed this way and that. Molecules move so rapidly that within a tenth of a second the molecules around a bacteria have all been replaced by new ones; even bacteria without flagella are thus constantly exposed to a changing environment.细菌细菌是极其微小的生物体我们用英寸或厘米来测量自己的大小,而测量细菌却要用微米一微米等于千分之一毫米针头直径大约一毫米棒状细菌通常有~微米长,而圆形细菌的直径一般只有1微米,即使你把一个圆形细菌放大00倍,它也不过一个针头那么大可是如果把一个成年人放大00倍,就会变成1英里(或1.6公里)多高用一般的显微镜观察细菌时,你必须仔细观察才能看见它们使用0倍的显微镜时,你会发现细菌不过是隐约可见的小细棒或小点点,而它们的结构你却根本看不出来使用特殊的着色剂后,你会发现有的细菌上长着不少波状的"毛发"即鞭毛,而有的细菌只有一根鞭毛鞭毛的旋转可以推动细菌在水中行进不少细菌没有鞭毛,因而不能自己行进还有些细菌却能通过某些鲜为人知的机制沿物体表面滑动我们所熟知的世界在细菌眼中完全是另一个样子对于细菌来说,水就同糖浆之于人类一样稠密细菌是如此的微小,周围化学分子的一举一动都会对它们产生影响在显微镜下,细菌,甚至包括那些没有鞭毛的细菌,经常在水中跳来跳去这是因为它们与水分子相撞后,被弹向各个方向分子移动很迅速,仅0.1秒之隔,一个细菌周围的分子就会完全更新,即使是没有鞭毛的细菌也暴露在一个不断变化的环境中 681
