“机器猫”担任日本“动漫大使”Japan's beloved cartoon robo-cat Doraemon took on a new role Wednesday as an "anime ambassador" in a bid to promote the nation's culture.Masahiko Komura, Japan's usually serious foreign minister, led an upbeat ceremony to appoint the character as Japan's first "anime ambassador" tasked with "making friends by travelling around the world.""Doraemon, I hope you will travel around the world as an anime ambassador to deepen people's understanding of Japan so they will become friends with Japan," Komura told the blue-and-white cat.In his acceptance speech, Doraemon said he was eager to promote Japanese culture."Through my work, I will do my best to tell people in foreign countries about what Japanese think, how Japanese live and what kind of future the Japanese hope to make," Doraemon said.Doraemon is the main character in one of Japan's most popular comic series, which has also become widely known in much of Asia since its book debut in 1969.Created by the late cartoonist Fujiko F. Fujio, Doraemon is a friendly humanoid robot who looks like a blue-and-white cat with no ears.The appointment is part of Japan's recent effort to harness the power of pop culture in diplomacy. Astro Boy, another cartoon icon, was named last November as ambassador for overseas safety. 深受人们喜爱的日本卡通形象“机器猫”——“哆啦A梦”于本周三接受了一项新使命,它将担任日本“动漫大使”,向全世界推广日本文化。当天,一贯以严肃形象示人的日本外务大臣高村正彦主持了一场别开生面的委任仪式,正式任命机器猫为日本的首任“动漫大使”,其主要使命是“巡游世界,广交朋友”。高村外长寄语这只蓝白相间的机器猫说:“哆啦A梦,我希望你能履行好‘动漫大使’的职责,遍游世界,加深世界各地人民对日本的了解,使他们成为我们的朋友。”“哆啦A梦”在致辞中说自己很期待为传播日本文化出一份力。它说:“我将尽自己最大的努力让世界各地的人们了解日本人在想什么、日本人的生活方式以及我们希望创造怎样的未来。”“哆啦A梦”是日本最风靡的一部系列动画片中的主角,而且自1969年其漫画书出版以来,这部动画片在亚洲的很多地区也广为人知。“哆啦A梦”是已故漫画家藤子不二雄创造出的卡通形象,它是一只没有耳朵、蓝白相间的机器猫,十分友好。近年来,日本开始大力推动“流行文化”外交,任命机器猫为“动漫大使”也是该计划的一部分。去年11月,日本另一个卡通人物“阿童木”被任命为“海外安全大使”。 /200803/31804。

  • We've known for more than a decade that the key to weight-loss is to consume fewer calories than you're burning--in other words, eat less, exercise more, or both. That dietary adage was confirmed last week by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health, with a widely reported study in the New England Journal of Medicine.有一个真理已经印在我们脑子里十多年了,那就是减肥的关键是吃进去的热量要比消耗掉的少才行,换句话说,要么少吃东西,要么多做运动,两者兼顾当然更好。上周哈佛大学公共健康专业的研究员们已经实了这句饮食格言的有效性,并在《新英格兰医学期刊》上做了大幅报道。In the study, researchers put 811 overweight adults on one of four weight loss plans, which were supposed to vary widely in fat, protein, and carbohydrate content. Most of the reporting discussed Atkins-style high protein diets as similar to the diet's high protein plan and Ornish-style low fat vegetarian diets as similar to the study's low fat plan. Since everyone who cut out 750 calories per day from their diets lost basically the same amount of weight, the take home message seemed to be that none of the popular diets are any better than any of the others.在这项研究中,研究员们给811位超重的成年人制定了一个减掉四分之一体重的计划,这样一来,脂肪、蛋白质和碳水化合物的摄入量就都要较他们习惯的饮食做很大的改变。报道用了很大篇幅讨论两种饮食方式,一个是跟阿金士食谱高蛋白质饮食法相似的高蛋白质摄入计划,另一个是跟欧宁胥节食法理念一致的低脂肪素食计划。因为每天从他们食谱中减少750卡路里热量的人也可以减少相同量的体重,因此,这项研究的结果表明这些著名的饮食法似乎并没有什么过人之处。But upon closer analysis, a very different conclusion emerges.但是随着研究深入,一种不同的声音若隐若现。First, all the tested diets strived to be "heart healthy," which means that they limited saturated fat, limited cholesterol, and contained at least 20 daily grams of fiber (in the form of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables). Anyone with even a passing familiarity with Atkins-style diets knows that all three of these requirements are virtually impossible on such diets--so this study should not be , in any way, as endorsing an Atkins (or similar high-meat) diet for weight loss.首先,所有参加测试的人都要努力做到“心脏健康”,也就是他们要控制饱和脂肪酸,控制胆固醇,还要保每天20克的膳食纤维的摄入(全谷物、水果和蔬菜中都有)。每个曾经试过阿金饮食法的人都知道这三个要求在阿金食谱中实际是不可能做到的,因此,要通过这个研究来明阿金减肥法(吃肉疗法)对减肥有效着实是无稽之谈。Second, although the caloric restriction worked for everyone who stuck with it--so it certainly is confirmation that caloric restriction is the way to lose weight--participants at two years were aly consuming more than the allowed calories and gaining back weight. In fact, all four groups were on track to be right where they started by year three. In other words, for long term weight loss, all of the diets failed.再次,尽管只要大家能坚持下来,控制摄入卡路里就能帮助你减轻体重(这也是明控制卡路里就能减肥的理由),但是参与者在两年内消耗的卡路里在规定范围内,可是体重却又反弹了。实际上,所有四组参与者在第三年试验开始时全都恢复了最原始的体重。换句话说,每种减肥法对长期减轻体重都没什么用。 /201010/115675。

  • 现在的年轻人大多青睐西方式的婚礼,既浪漫又神圣。其实西式婚礼可不止是教堂誓词那么简单,这次我们就一起来看看西式的婚礼是怎样进行的。订婚仪式:It all begins with the engagement. Traditionally, a young man asks the father of his sweetheart for permission to marry her. If the father agrees, the man later proposes to her. Often he tries to surprise her by "popping the question" in a romantic way.Sometimes the couple just decides together that the time is right to get married. The man usually gives his fiancée a diamond ring as a symbol of their engagement. They may be engaged for weeks, months or even years. As the big day approaches, bridal showers and bachelor’s parties provide many useful gifts. Today many couples also receive counseling during engagement. This prepares them for the challenges of married life. 婚礼进程:  At last it’s time for the wedding. Although most weddings follow long-held traditions, there’s still room for American individualism. For example, the usual place for a wedding is in a church. But some people get married outdoors in a scenic spot. A few even have the ceremony while skydiving or riding on horseback! The couple may invite hundreds of people or just a few close friends. They choose their own style of colors, decorations and music during the ceremony. But some things rarely change. The bride usually wears a beautiful, long white wedding dress. She traditionally wears "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." The groom wears a formal suit or tuxedo. Several close friends participate in the ceremony as attendants, including the best man and the maid of honor. 教堂仪式:  As the ceremony begins, the groom and his groomsmen stand with the minister, facing the audience. Music signals the entrance of the bridesmaids, followed by the beautiful bride. Nervously, the young couple repeat their vows. Traditionally, they promise to love each other "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health." But sometimes the couple has composed their own vows. They give each other a gold ring to symbolize their marriage commitment. Finally the minister announces the big moment: "I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride!" 婚礼宴会:  At the wedding reception, the bride and groom greet their guests. Then they cut the wedding cake and feed each other a bite. Guests mingle while enjoying cake, punch and other treats. (Usually at a reception a dinner is served)Later the bride throws her bouquet of flowers to a group of single girls. Tradition says that the one who catches the bouquet will be the next to marry. During the reception, playful friends "decorate" the couple’s car with tissue paper, tin cans and a "Just Married" sign. When the reception is over, the newlyweds run to their "decorated" car and speed off. Many couples take a honeymoon, a one- to two-week vacation trip, to celebrate their new marriage. /200908/82769。
