Hey, it’s Ben, from The Modern Man. One of the cool techniques I talk about at the Dating Power seminar is the Caller Guessing Technique. This is a very interesting and unique technique that you can use when you make that first phone call to a girl to really avoid that awkward moment, that awkward tension that usually happens when you make that first call. So, check it out.大家好,我是“现代男人”的本。我在“约会能力”培训班中谈到的一个很棒的技巧便是“揣测谁的来电”。这是一个非常有趣而且非常独特的技巧,它能帮助你在第一次给某个女孩打电话的时候避免尴尬——这种尴尬的紧张情绪通常在你们的这种初次通话中出现。嗯,来听听吧。 /201009/112889

A public toilet in Munich which has been transformed into an art museum has attracted hundreds of people in the first days after opening, a spokesman for the city's tourism agency said on Thursday.Built in 1894, the toilet house was originally constructed to serve nearby households which lacked necessary facilities.After being in use for over a hundred years, the toilets were locked up in 1992 because they were very rarely used."On the night we opened, around 800 people came to see our work," initiator of the museum project, Mathias Koehler told reporters.He said that a toilet was a great place for artistic expression because art is a form of relief in the same way that going to the toilet is.The art exhibited is mainly graffiti often with a political theme. Examples include images of Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel flanking a urinal in the corner of the room.Four artists contributed their work to the exhibition.Although the 70-square meter museum is only temporary, Koehler said he could not rule out making it permanent if public interest remains high. (德国)慕尼黑市旅游局的一位发言人于上周四称,慕尼黑的一家公厕被改造成艺术物馆后,在刚开放几天内就吸引了数百人前来参观。这个公厕建造于1894年,最初是为解决附近居民上厕所难的问题而建。在被使用100多年后,这个厕所于1992年被停用,因为现在已经很少有人使用它。物馆改造工程发起人玛西亚斯#8226;科赫勒在接受记者采访时说:“物馆开放当晚,约有800人前来参观。”他说,厕所是艺术表达的绝佳场所,因为艺术和上厕所一样,都是一种放松形式。此次厕所艺术展的多数展品是一些政治主题的“涂鸦”作品,比如,(美国总统民主党候选人)巴拉克#8226;奥巴马和德国总理安吉拉#8226;默克尔的画像就出现在屋内角落处的一个便池旁。共有四位艺术家为此次展览贡献作品。尽管这家面积只有70平米的厕所物馆目前只是临时性的,但科赫勒表示,如果公众热情一直很高,他不排除这个物馆会长期存在的可能。 /200811/55021

Lending credence to the old adage about eating an apple a day, a new study finds that women who ate the fruit daily saw improvements in cholesterol levels and markers of inflammation — suggesting a lower risk of heart disease — in a year's time.“每日一苹果,医生远离我”的言语流传已久,而一份最新的医学研究发现,在一年的时间内,每日食用苹果的女性胆固醇的水平有所改善,并且减少了炎症的发生,这也就意味着降低了患心脏病的几率。The study, conducted by researchers at Florida State University, involved 160 women who were randomly assigned to eat about 2.7 ounces (75 g) of dried apples or prunes (dried plums) daily. Researchers did blood tests at the three-, six- and 12-month marks to measure heart-risk factors.这项由美国加州州立大学开展的这项研究涉及了160名女性,按照要求他们每天都会食用75克得苹果干或者杏仁干,研究者分别在第三、六、十二个月测量了她们的血液以分析心脏病诱因的情况。After a year, the women who ate dried apples had lowered their total cholesterol by 14%; their levels of LDL (or "bad") cholesterol had fallen by 23%, and their levels of HDL (or good) cholesterol had increased by about 4%. Participants also experienced a 32% decline in C-reactive protein, an indicator of inflammation in the body and a risk factor for heart disease.一年之后,那些食用苹果干的女性的胆固醇总量TC下降了14%,低密度脂蛋白LDLD-C,也就是通常所说的坏胆固醇含量下降了23%,高密度脂蛋白HDL-C的含量增加了4%,研究对象的C反应蛋白CRP含量下降了32%,这种蛋白质会诱发人体出现炎症的情况,是引发心脏病的诱因。The women who ate prunes saw also slight reductions in these risk factors, but not to the same extent as those who ate apples, said study author and professor of nutrition Bahram H. Arjmandi.营养学教授Bahram H. Arjmandi表示,食用杏仁干的女性在心脏病的诱因方面的水平也有所降低,但却不及吃苹果这组效果显著。 /201104/133829

Spain's "El Gordo," the world's biggest lottery, gave out 2.2 billion euros (1.6 billion pounds) in Christmas prizes on Saturday.El Gordo, Spanish for "The Fat One", is designed so that as many people as possible across Spain get a festive windfall.The top prize this year was 3 million euros -- going to the series of tickets with the magic number 06381.Because the tickets are sold in a series of 10, only those who paid 200 euros for the whole strip get the full prize.The biggest share of winning tickets was bought by people in the town of Nava, in the north-western Asturias region.The draw lasts three-and-a-half hours and is carried live on national television with children from the San Ildefonso school, a former orphanage in Madrid, in turn chanting the winning numbers and the amount won.Lotteries have two centuries of history in Spain.The country spent 2.87 billion euros on the lottery -- 5.7 percent more than last year. Seventy percent is paid out in prizes. Most of the rest goes in costs.Eight out of ten Spaniards bought tickets for the lottery, spending on average 64 euros.Spaniards often choose lottery numbers matching significant dates although there was no particular favourite in 2007.In 2006, one of the most sought-after series was 22105, the date on which Fernando Alonso became Formula 1 world champion for the second year running. 号称世界上规模最大的西班牙“El Gordo”圣诞票于上周六开奖,奖金总额高达22亿欧元(16亿英镑)。“El Gordo”在西班牙语中意为“胖子”。“胖子”圣诞票的推出主要是为了给更多的西班牙人带来一份节日的意外惊喜。今年的头奖奖金为300万欧元,号码为“06381”。由于票是以十张一组进行销售(译者注:人们可花20欧元购买其中的十分之一),因此只有花200欧元购买了整组票的人才有机会获得全奖。位于阿斯图里亚斯自治区西北部的纳瓦市是今年的“黄金”地。整个开奖过程持续三个半小时,并通过国家电视台现场直播。在开奖现场,马德里的圣#8226;艾尔德芬索小学(原为一所孤儿院)的学生们轮流报唱号码及金额。西班牙的票历史已有两个世纪。今年西班牙的“胖子票”销售收入达28.7亿欧元,比去年增长5.7%。其中70%的收入用于返奖奖金,其余大部分为销售成本。今年西班牙全国有四分之三的人购买了“胖子票”,人均花费64欧元。西班牙人常选择有特殊意义的日期作为号码,不过2007年似乎没有什么特别受到亲睐的日子。去年最受青睐的号码是22105,因为在10月22日这一天,阿隆索连续第二年获得F1(一级方程式赛车)车手总冠军。 /200803/29700

No.1 Barack Obama 巴拉克·奥巴马In the past hundred years, the U.S. presidency has veered more and more to the left--not in policy, but in handedness. Barack Obama is the latest to join a long list of left-handed presidents from the 20th century: James Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Henry Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton were all southpaws.在过去的一百年中,美国的总统们越来越“左倾”,这不是指他们的政见,而是他们的用手习惯。二十世纪以来一长串左撇子总统名单中,奥巴马是最近加入的一个。在他之前,加菲尔德总统、胡佛总统、杜鲁门总统、里根总统、老布什总统和克林顿总统都是左撇子。What makes lefties so electable? Some experts think left-handed people have a greater aptitude for language skills, which may help them craft the rhetoric necessary for political office. And as for the bout of recent left-handed presidents, some think it's because teachers only recently stopped working to convert lefties to righties at an early age.怎么会有那么多左撇子总统当选呢?一些专家认为,左撇子人群的语言运用能力更强,这种能力或许可以使他们在组织一些政治措辞时更为游刃有余。而至于近些年左撇子总统出现更为集中的问题,有些人认为这和教师最近停止对左撇子儿童进行右手使用纠正训练有关。No.2 Bill Gates 比尔·盖茨Claiming the nation's richest man among their number is a source of considerable pride for America's society of southpaws. In fact, the Microsoft titan and philanthropist is one of a surprising number of U.S. business moguls to be left-handed, including Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller and former IBM head Lou Gerstner. But the club seems to be a guys-only fraternity-- research suggests that while left-handed men tend to earn more than their right-handed colleagues, there is no similar advantage for women. A study by the National Bureau of Economic Research floated the idea that left-handed men favor "divergent" thinking, a form of creativity in which the brain moves "from conventional knowledge into unexplored association." Maybe that's what it takes to develop a net worth estimated at billion.包括美国第一首富在内的这一人群,是美国左撇子最引以为豪的。事实上,这位微软巨头兼慈善家仅仅只是美国商界左撇子巨贾中的一位,如福特、洛克菲勒和前IBM总裁郭士纳都是左撇子。不过美国商界的左撇子团体似乎是一个“女士止步”的男士联谊会,研究表面,尽管男性的左撇子商人要比右撇子盈利更多,但是这条规律却不适合于女性。美国国家经济研究所指出,左撇子男士更青睐于“发散性”思维,这是一种创造性的思维方式,使大脑“从传统的知识转移到未曾探知的联想中去”。也许正是这样的一种思维方式创造了一张价值约估为570亿美元的“网络”。No.3 Oprah Winfrey 奥普拉·温弗瑞The talk-show queen doesn't need much more to set her apart from the rest--what with her estimated .7 billion fortune and a magic ability to sell books just by glancing at them--but she also has the distinction of being a member of the left-handed club. Since men are more likely to be left-handed than women, that makes Oprah doubly impressive. She's in good company: Other show-biz ladies of the southpaw persuasion include Whoopi Goldberg, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie (her husband Brad Pitt is also a lefty).拥有约27亿美元的身价和仅需她瞄一眼就能把书卖到脱销的神奇力量,这位脱口秀女王已无需更多特质来使她鹤立鸡群了,但是她同样也是左撇子俱乐部中的一员。由于左撇子男性本身要比女性多,这无疑使奥普拉更为引人注目。其他与她同为女性左撇子的名人也都非常出众,包括乌比·戈德堡、茱莉亚·罗伯茨和安吉丽娜·朱莉(朱莉的老公布拉德·皮特也是左撇子)。No. 4 Napoleon Bonaparte 拿破仑·波拿巴Legend has it that Napoleon objected to the time-honored military practice of marching on the left side of the road with weapons at the y in the right hand: it put lefties like him at a strategic disadvantage. Once in power, the story goes, the French emperor--whose queen, Josephine, was also a southpaw--ordered his armies to switch sides. Civilians in countries he conquered had to do the same. Hence, supposedly, the rules of the road as we know them were born, which also explains why the British (who, along with the Prussians, defeated Napoleon at Waterloo) still drive on the left.据传,拿破仑反对士兵站在道路的左边而右手拿着武器这一经历了时间考验的军事惯例,这项惯例让像他这样的左撇子在战术上非常不利。据传说中记载,这位法国国王(他的王后约瑟芬也是左撇子)掌权之后,命令军队士兵改变左右列队位置。所有他所征的国家百姓也都必须这样做。据说,因此也就产生了我们现在所知的道路法规,这也解释了为什么英国人是靠马路左边开车的。(英国人和普鲁士人在滑铁卢打败了拿破仑)No. 5 Marie Curie 居里夫人Not only was atomic scientist Marie Curie left-handed, but she was the matriarch of a whole family of accomplished, southpaw scientists. Curie, who discovered the principles of radioactivity and won two Nobel Prizes, was married to fellow lefty Pierre Curie, who was instrumental in helping Marie's atomic research and shared one of her Nobel awards. Historians believe their daughter, Irene, was also left-handed. Irene went on to win a Nobel Prize of her own with her husband--who, you guessed it, was also left-handed.原子科学家居里夫人不仅仅自己是左撇子,她作为女家长,他们一家子都是建树斐然的左撇子科学家。居里夫人发现了放射原理,两次获得了诺贝尔奖,她嫁给了同为左撇子的科学家皮耶尔·居里,他对居里夫人的原子研究给予了很大的帮助,还和他的夫人分享了一座诺贝尔奖。历史学家相信,他们的女儿伊雷娜也是左撇子。伊雷娜也和她的丈夫一起获得了她自己的诺贝尔奖,而她的丈夫嘛......你猜对了,也是个左撇子。 Lefty scientists are hardly unusual. In addition to the Curie clan, Einstein, Newton and Alan Turing--founder of modern computer science--all were left-handed as well.左撇子科学家其实并不少见。除了居里夫人一家之外,爱因斯坦、牛顿和现代电脑科学的创始人阿兰·图灵都是左撇子。 /200908/81925
