A nine-year-old boy from Morden, Manitoba, Canada, has taken up the lost art of letter writing — and he#39;s not writing to just anyone, he#39;s written to every world leader for whom he could find a mailing address.加拿大马尼托巴省莫登的一名九岁男孩重拾起消逝的写信艺术,而且他的信不是写给随便什么人的,而是给那些他能找到邮寄地址的各国领导人们。Levi Voth has written more than 230 letters and he#39;s received 27 responses.利维·沃斯已经寄出了230多封信,并且收到了27封回信。Among the 27 countries that responded to the nine-year-old#39;s request for information: Andorra, Germany, Brazil, Liechtenstein and North Korea.给9岁小男孩回信的27个国家包括:安道尔共和国、德国、巴西、列敦士登和朝鲜。;I#39;m always pretty happy when I get a letter back,; Voth said, but he thinks his favourite response was the one from North Korea, often called the Hermit Kingdom, due to its lack of interest in pursuing international diplomatic relations.沃斯说:“在收到回信时我非常的开心!”不过,他说他收到的最喜欢的回复来自朝鲜。人们通常称之为幽闭国度,因为他们对国际外交关系没什么兴趣。;I really wasn#39;t expecting one from there,; he added. ;They didn#39;t say anything, they just sent me some newspapers and some books.;他说:“我没想到他们会给我回复,他们什么也没写,只是寄给我一些报纸和书籍。”Voth told C#39;s Radio Noon that it has been a learning experience for him, ;Andorra, I had no clue about. Same with Lithuania and Lichtenstein.;沃斯在C的午间广播中说这对他来说是一种学习经历,“完全不了解安道尔共和国,立陶宛和列敦士登也不太知道。”Voth said he got the idea from a book his father to him, ;I thought it would be pretty cool to write letters to all the world leaders.;沃斯称他的想法产生于他父亲给他读的一本书。他觉得给世界各地的领导人写信很酷。Voth asked very specific questions to the leaders:沃斯对这些领导人问了一些细节的问题:If I went to your country, what should I make sure I see or do on my visit?如果我去你的国家,我一定要看或要做的事情是什么?What are you really proud about in your country?你们国家什么最让你自豪?What would you like the whole world to know about your country?你愿意让整个世界了解你们国家的什么方面?What is the best thing about living in your country?在你的国家生活,最好的事情是什么?If you could change one thing in your country, what would it be?如果你能够改变你们国家的一件事,那会是什么?;And at the bottom I wrote, #39;I can#39;t wait to hear back from you. If you#39;re ever in Manitoba, Canada I would like to go for ice cream with you,; Voth said.沃斯说:“在信的结尾,我是这么写的,#39;我迫不及待地想要收到你的回信,如果你在加拿大马尼托巴省的话,我想跟你一起吃冰淇淋。’”Botswana advised Voth that if he were ever in the country, to visit the Okavango Delta, which was listed as a World Heritage Site in 2014.Denmarktold him to check out Dyrehavsbakken, the world#39;s oldest operating amusement park.兹瓦纳在回信中建议沃斯,如果他来这个国家的话,记得参观奥卡万戈三角洲,这里在2014年被列入世界文化遗产。丹麦建议他去巴肯游乐场玩一玩,那是目前还开放的世界上最古老的游乐场。Voth said his next project will be to write to all the provinces in Canada and states in the U.S.沃斯说他下一个计划是写信给加拿大所有的省和美国所有的州。 /201506/382908Top 10 Modern Foods With (Mostly) Delicious Histories10种拥有美妙历史的现代食物3. Sausages3.香肠The exact origin of the sausage is unclear, with reports ranging around 50,000. There is an agreement, however, that the sausages, frankfurters, and hot dogs that people eat on a daily basis originated from a desire to preserve meat.香肠的准确起源并不清楚,大约在公元前50000年就已经有了相关记载。不过存在着一个共识,那就是人们每天吃的香肠、法兰克福香肠和热都是源于人们保存肉类的愿望。Ever wonder why sausages are wrapped in some form of casing? The reason is that, before refrigeration, butchers would want to preserve meat during transit. They took the meat, organs, and blood of a slaughtered animal, sprinkled it with salt to preserve it, then wrapped the gristly results in the animal#39;s intestine or stomach to stop it going off before it could be eaten.想知道香肠为什么要用各种肠衣包裹?原因就是在冷藏之前,屠夫想要在运输途中保存肉类。他们将动物屠杀,在所得的肉、五脏和血上撒盐以便保存,然后将这些柔软的东西包进动物的肠或胃里,防止吃之前腐坏。This is why some sausages contain a large amount of blood in their recipes; the origin of this practice was to help use up any blood that was left over after slaughtering an animal.这就是为什么有些香肠的制作食谱中包含有大量的血,这种做法是为了用尽屠杀动物后所留下的所有血。We have no real use for salting today, given how good fridges can be with preserving meat. The tradition of meat in casing, however, still goes strong to this day.在今天,我们已经无需再盐腌肉类,因为有冰箱可以保存肉类。但是,将肉灌进肠衣的传统至今仍然盛行。 /201506/383117

Google is consistently rated the best place to work. So you need a degree from Harvard to get in the door, right?谷歌一直被认为是最好的工作地点,这是否意味着,只有哈佛大学毕业生才能如愿踏进谷歌大门呢?Not really, according to Laszlo Bock, Google#39;s Head of People Operations.谷歌人力运营部主管拉斯洛·克(Laszlo Bock)表示,并非如此。When the company was small, Google cared a lot about getting kids from Harvard, Stanford, and MIT. But Bock said it was the ;wrong; hiring strategy. Experience has taught him there are exceptional kids at many other places, from state schools in California to New York.在谷歌还是一个小公司的时候,曾经非常看重哈佛、斯坦福、麻省理工等名校的文凭。但克认为,这种招聘策略是错误的。经验告诉他,在一些别的地方,比如加利福尼亚或纽约的公立学校中,也会有一些天赋超常的人才。;What we find is the best people from places like that are just as good if not better as anybody you can get from any Ivy League school,; said Bock, who just authored a book titled ;Work Rules!; and stopped by CNNMoney to share his smarts.“我们从这些地方招聘的人才就算不比常春藤盟校(Ivy League school)的学生更优秀,至少也与他们一般优秀。”克刚写了一本名为《工作法则》(Work Rules!)的书,他在美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)财经频道做客时分享了他的智慧哲学。Every year, 2 million people apply to get a job at Google (GOOG). Bock himself has seen some 25,000 résumés.每年都会有两百万的人到谷歌公司求职,克本人已经看过2.5万份求职简历。So what else does Google not care about:那么谷歌招聘中不看重的还有哪些呢?Grades: Google#39;s data shows that grades predict performance for the first two years of a career, but do not matter after that.分数:谷歌数据显示,分数只能预测职业生涯最初两年的能力,除此之外,毫无意义。Brainteasers: Gone are interview questions such as: Why are manhole covers round? or How many golf balls can fit in a school bus? ;Our research tells us those questions are a waste of time,; Bock said. ;They#39;re a really coachable skill. The more you practice, you get better at it.;智力问答:谷歌不再出这样的面试题了:为什么井盖是圆的?或者是:多少个高尔夫球能装满一辆校车?克说:“我们的调查显示,这么问纯粹是浪费时间。因为这些是能够通过训练提高的技能,你练习得越多,就能答得更好。”A shoe: ;Somebody sent me a shoe once with a résumé tucked inside because they wanted to get their foot in the door.; That one didn#39;t work.一只鞋:“有人曾把简历塞在一只鞋里寄给我,意思是他们想踏进谷歌这扇门。”这样做当然没能奏效。Or a robot: Especially when it arrived broken, with exposed wires and a ;press here; button. Call in the bomb squad.一个机器人:尤其是那些寄来时已经坏了的,电线露在外面,上面还有一个“按这里”的按钮,于是我们只好给防爆小组打电话了。Here#39;s what Google does care about:以下这些才是谷歌真正看重的:Problem solvers: Your cognitive ability, or how well you solve problems.能解决问题的人:拥有认知能力或是能够排忧解难的人。Leaders: The idea is not whether you were president of the student body or vice president of the bank, rather: ;When you see a problem do you step in, help solve it,; and then critically, ;Are you willing to step out and let somebody else take over, and make room for somebody else? Are you willing to give up power?;有领导能力的人:这不是说你得是学生会主席或是副总理,而是“当你遇到问题时能不能介入,帮助解决问题”。然后是眼光要犀利,“可以退出来让别人接管吗?能够让位于别人吗?可以放弃权力吗?”Googleyness: That#39;s what Google calls its cultural fit. It#39;s not ;Are you like us?; Bock said. ;We actually look for people who are different, because diversity gives us great ideas.;具有谷歌精神(Googleyness)的人:这点被谷歌称作文化契合度。它并不是“你和我们一样吗?”克说:“事实上,我们在寻找和我们不一样的人,因为多样性能给谷歌带来卓越的想法。”What#39;s most important is that people are intellectually humble, willing to admit when they#39;re wrong, and care about the environment around them ...;because we want people who think like owners not employees,; Bock said.最重要的一点就是:理性的谦逊,愿意承认自己错了,关心周围的环境……克说:“我们想要的是那些拥有主人翁心态而不是雇员心态的人。”The least important thing? Knowing how to do the job.最不重要的一点是什么?只知道如何工作的人。;We figure if you get the first three right you#39;ll figure it out most of the time.;“我们认为一旦你具备了前三点,基本上就可以所向披靡了。” /201505/376072

Cute Harry可爱的哈利It#39;s was little Harry#39;s first visit to the country,这是小哈利第一次停留在乡下,and feeding the chickens fascinated him.并且喂食吸引他目光的小鸡。Late one evening he caught his first glimpse of peacock strutting in the yard,有一天晚上,他第一次看到孔雀在院子里神气 十足地昂首阔步,feathers sp beautifully in all its glory.得意地将羽毛很优美地向外展开,Rushing indoors excitedly,Harry called out for his grandma.小哈利很兴裔地,向屋内冲,大声叫他的奶奶来看……;Oh,Granny,come see!Come see!; he exclaimed.他高声地叫说:“喔,奶奶,快来看!快来看!”;one of your chickens is in bloom!;“你们家有一只鸡开花罗!” /201503/361451

A government employee found and old brass lamp in a filing cabinet.有一位政府机关员工在档案柜里面发现一盏老旧的铜制油灯。When he dusted it off,a genie appeared and granted him three wishes.当他把它的灰尘除去的时候。有一个精灵出现了 ,并且同意他三个愿望。;I#39;d love an ice-cold beer right now,;他告诉精灵 “我现在马上就要一瓶冰啤酒 。”he told the genie .Poof! A beer appeared .砰!一瓶啤酒出现了。Next the man said,; I wish to be on an island,surrounded by becautiful and willing woman.;这个人接着说:“我想要到一个岛上, 被甘心乐意的美女围绕着。”Poof!He was on an island with gorgeous woman fawning all over him.砰!他到了一个岛上,被美女纠缠着对他献殷勤。Oh,this is the life,the guy thought.这家伙想着啊,这才是生活呀。;I wish I never had to work again.;“我希望我永远都不必再工作。”And poof! He was back at his desk in the government office!砰!他回到他在政府机关的 办公桌前。 /201503/361462
