【中英对照】Romance does not have to fizzle out in long-term relationships and progress into a companionship/friendship-type love, a new study has found.最新研究发现,长期的爱情关系并不一定导致浪漫元素的减少,也不会导致恋爱关系向伙伴或朋友关系转变。Romantic love can last a lifetime and lead to happier, healthier relationships.浪漫爱情可以持续一生,并且变得越来越幸福,越来越健康。"Many believe that romantic love is the same as passionate love," said lead researcher Bianca P. Acevedo, PhD, then at Stony Brook University (currently at University of California, Santa Barbara). "It isn't. Romantic love has the intensity, engagement and sexual chemistry that passionate love has, minus the obsessive component. Passionate or obsessive love includes feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. This kind of love helps drive the shorter relationships but not the longer ones."主持研究的Bianca P. Acevedo当时是石溪大学的士生,现任职于加州大学圣芭芭拉分校。她表示,很多人以为浪漫之爱和之爱是一回事,但实际上并非如此。浪漫之爱在强度、承诺和性吸引方面与之爱相同,但没有后者的强迫性成分。的或者强迫性的爱情包含了不确定和焦虑的感觉,它驱动的是短期关系而不是长期关系。 /200905/69855

Job flexibility is the key to keeping workers happy, productive and loyal to the company, a new study shows.Researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, found that workers who enjoyed more work flexibility were also less likely to say health problems affected their performance at work."For managers, the results suggest that implementing flexible work arrangements can contribute to the bottom-line," said Joseph Grzywacz, a professor of family medicine at the university.Workplace flexibility refers to the ability of employees to modify where, when and how long work their work is performed.Telecommuting, flexitime and job sharing were the main types of flexibility cited in the study published in the Psychologist-Manager journal.The researchers studied a health survey completed by 3,193 employees of a large multinational pharmaceutical company. They used the information to determine how increases or decreases in perceived flexibility from one year to the next were associated with a variety of factors.Decreases in flexibility over the year were associated with reduced job commitment, but had little impact on absence, they said.Offering a variety of alternative work arrangements and training managers and supervisors to be supportive of workers' personal lives may help in creating a culture of flexibility, researchers added. 别再寻找和你互补的爱人了,我们需要和自己相似的爱人,因为相似的相貌意味着我们有相似的个性。新的研究显示,和某人在一起时间越长,我们和他的长相就越相似。研究人员选取160对夫妻的单人照片,分别给11名的男性和11名女性看,让他们判断这些夫妻的年龄、魅力点和性格特征。但是在此之前,他们并不知道谁和谁是一对。22名参与者把他们认为相貌和性格相似的人摆在一起,而他们也恰恰就是真正的夫妻。而且,在一起生活时间越长的夫妻,相似性就越明显。研究人员认为共同的经历造成了他们的相似性。英国利物浦研究人员托尼·利特尔说:相貌和性格之间有关系这一想法听起来有点怪异,但却是有生物学依据的。他说:“睾丸激素直接影响男性化的脸型形成,也影响人的行为。脸可以反映我们的情绪,长时间重复一个表情也会改变我们的脸。”例如,一个人总是笑就会产生笑纹,别人就能看出这个人生活挺幸福的。此项研究显示,人们利用面部特征来判断某人的特点,对于每张脸,人们判断的依据也有所不同。但是眼睛和微笑绝对是判断的最重要依据。利特尔说:“笑容是社交中十分重要的友好表示,眼睛也是精力是否集中的最有力明。”利特尔说:整个面部也很重要。例如,由宽下巴和上扬的眉峰等组成的男性化面部特征会让人觉得不友好、不愿意合作。 /200804/36985

From the Sydney Opera House to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, iconic structures went dark as people switched off lights in their homes and skylines dimmed around the world on Saturday to show concern with global warming.Up to 30 million people were expected to have turned off their lights for 60 minutes by the time "Earth Hour" - which started in Suva in Fiji and Christchurch in New Zealand - completed its cycle westward.More than 380 towns and cities and 3,500 businesses in 35 countries signed up for the campaign that is in its second year after it began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia's largest city."Earth Hour shows that everyday people are prepared to pull together to find a solution to climate change. It can be done," said James Leape of WWF International, which was running the campaign.Lights at Sydney's Opera House and Harbor Bridge were dimmed as Australians held candle-lit beach parties, played poker by candlelight and floated candles down rivers.In Bangkok, some of the city's business districts, shopping malls and billboards went dark, although street lights stayed on. One major hotel invited guests to dine by candle light and reported brisk business.In Copenhagen, the Tivoli Gardens and the Royal Palace and the opera darkened for an hour, along with many street lights."In the central square a lot of people were standing looking at the stars," said Ida Thuesen, spokeswoman for WWF Denmark. "It's not often you can see the stars in a city."In a tip of its virtual hat to the event, the background of Google's home page turned to black from white on more than a dozen country sites including Google.com. Floodlights went out at landmarks in Budapest, including its castle, cathedral and parliament.In Britain, 26 town and city councils signed up to switch off nonessential lights as did several historic buildings, including Prince Charles' private residence Highgrove House, London City Hall, Winchester Cathedral and the Government Communication Headquarters radio monitoring station. The south coast town of Brighton turned off the lights on its pier.The movement crossed the Atlantic to the ed States and Canada, where the 553-metre CN Tower in Toronto and the surrounding skyline were plunged into temporary darkness.(China Daily /Agencies)Vocabulary:WWF:世界自然基金会 (World Wide Fund for Nature) /200804/34779

This is a first for A Miracle A Day... a guest post. This is one that I, personally, could use, and I hope that you find it useful as well.Here it is, then, a guest post from Gaetano at http://www.fruitfultime.com/.By far the best technique to impress when you are networking and building relationships with prospective clients or business partners is to remember their names. Can you remember the last time someone remembered your name how flattered you felt? When someone addresses you with your name, you feel that you are important.Our name is something hard wired into our brain. This is quite natural. Our parents were the first to call us using our name and therefore it is something we react to subconsciously. When we hear our name we pay more attention to what is being said and there is a higher probability that we will act upon something when we are addressed by our name. Therefore, it is invaluable for you to remember peoples’ names if you want to draw and keep the attention of someone, be it a friend at a party or a potential client in a business meeting.Also, since many people have trouble remembering names, if you manage to remember names using the below techniques you will manage to stand out from the rest of the crowd. You will also come across as a bright person and this definitely gives bonus points to your charm score.The above was just a summary of the benefits of remembering names. I hope it was enough to convince you how important it is to remember names when networking and socialising. If you are like how I used to be and you keep on forgetting names, then I suggest you start following these tips. The following tips can help you remember more names and in doing so help you build stronger relationships both in your business and in your personal life.Make Sure You Get It Correct From The BeginningIt happened once to me and I will make sure it will not happen again. I once was introduced to a person and I didn’t get the name right. I didn’t ask him to repeat his name since I was embarrassed. I hoped that his name will be mentioned in a conversation. But it didn’t happen. I still have the cell phone number saved with “Unknown name” as his name. I can still remember that this person was an English teacher.So pay attention when you get introduced. Make sure you get the name right as from the beginning so as to avoid embarrassing situations like the one I have described above.Call The Person By Their NameOnce you get introduced address the person using his/her name. Do this for two reasons. First of all to make sure that you got the name right. If you got the name wrong you want the other person to politely correct you before you go ahead and memorise the name.The second reason is because such a technique will help you to associate the name with the person and his/her characteristics like face, voice and general character. Such association will help you remember the name more and will come handy if you meet that person another time.For instance, I find myself better at remembering voices rather than faces, especially where women are concerned. Women have a tendency to change hair style, making them look completely different. Even though years pass their voices remain the same. Hence I find myself remembering more names by associating a name with a voice.Finally, calling a person by his name makes the conversation more personal and enjoyable.Ask How To Spell ItIf someone has a rare name and you do not know how to pronounce it or spell it you could say something like “That’s an interesting name. How do you spell it?” This way you will get the information you need without sounding boring. I also understand that this technique highly depends on the situation in which you are socialising. If you are in a formal meeting you don’t want to ask how a name is spelt. But if you are socialising in an informal way, then it will be a good idea to ask how a name is spelt. No, such question is not intrusive but it shows interest. Once you know how to spell the name, try to spell the name in your mind by visualizing the spelling of the name. This process further helps you memorize names.Associate The Name With A Characteristic Of The PersonWhen you get introduced to a person try to ask for some details about the person like what s/he does, hobbies etc. The more information you know about a person the more you have to associate with the name. It is very hard to remember a name which is not put into context. By getting information about the person, you will associate the newly learned name with a context. /200803/29697

January 31 the year's biggest night for first datesJanuary 31 is due to be the year's biggest night for first dates, according to a survey.Although January may have the reputation as the peak month for relationships break up, new statistics show Saturday night is due to be the year's biggest night for first dates.On top of that, an estimated 70,000 will turn into a new romance by February.A survey of 5,000 singles by PARSHIP.co.uk, Europe's largest scientifically-based online dating service, showed Britain's singles will go on 2.5 million first dates this January, almost three times more than in December and twice as many as any other single month of the year.Another recent PARSHIP poll found four out of five people said they would actively to meet someone in January.Almost half said they would look for a committed relationship, more than one in ten for a casual relationship and one in five for any type of relationship.Nearly half of singles, 45 per cent of men and 50 per cent of women also admitted to feeling particularly lonely in January.Dr Victoria Lukats, psychiatrist and PARSHIP.co.uk's dating expert, said: "These findings are consistent with previous surveys. We know that more people join internet dating services in January than any other time of year."We also know that internet dating has now become the single most common way of finding a partner."The explanation could be down to the post-Christmas malaise, pressure from well-meaning friends and relatives or New Year's resolutions." /200902/61641
