2:00 a.m. in the Arabian Desert, the world’s fifth richest man sits alone. A rare moment of tranquility. Who is this man? What is he thinking? Why is he here?

               

他就是奥瓦里•宾•塔拉•宾•阿杜拉西斯•沃苏王子殿下,是沙特国王法赫德的侄子,沙特创建者的孙子,也是当今黎巴嫩创建者的外孙。年仅44岁的他拥有200亿美金的财富。 大多数时间,他住在一间46万平方英尺的宫殿,一个他称之为家的地方。很奇怪,对不对?这里共有317个房间,其中包括18间起居室,15间餐厅,10间卧室,16间储藏室和12架电梯。

 Journalist: Do you think you live lavishly?

 Prince: No, I don’t think … I live happily. Now, maybe to some people, it is lavish

A study found that people who sleep less tend to be fat, and experts said it’s time find if more sleep will fight obesity.

“We’ve put so much emphasis on diet and exercise that we’ve failed to recognize the value of good sleep,” said Fred Turek, a physician at North-western University.

                

本周一来自诺福克的西弗吉尼亚医学院的一份对1000人做的研究表明,累计睡眠时间和体重指数刚好成反比,体重指数是一种以身高为基准来衡量体重的方法。

Men slept an average of 27 minutes less than women and overweight and obese patients slept less than patients with normal weights, it said. In general the fatter subjects slept about 1.8 hours a week le

A herring(鲱鱼) once decided to swim right around the world. So he swam off south into the deep Atlantic. He swam and swam far, far away from the seas he knew, through the warm waters of the equator and on down into the south Pacific Ocean. And on he swam through the Coral Sea; the water is so deep that it is inky black at the bottom. And through the Pacific he swam and then he turned north and headed up to the cold Siberian Sea(西伯利亚海). And he went past Greenland and Iceland and finally he swam home into own North Sea.

The American version of the Santa Claus figure received its inspiration and its name from the Dutch legend of Sinterklaas(辛特克劳斯). Dutch colonists took this tradition with them to New Amsterdam (now New York City) in the American colonies in the 17th century.

早在1773年,“圣·克劳斯”这个名字就在美国报纸上出现了,但却是著名作家华盛顿·欧文首次向美国人详细介绍了荷兰版的圣·尼古拉斯。

               

A human-sized version of Santa Claus, rather than the elf of Moore’s poem, was depicted in a series of illustrations created by haddom Sundblom for Coca Cola advertisements introduced in 1931. In modern versions of the Santa Claus legend, only hi

“Despite how hard I try, I have been unable to land a new job. I have been thinking about volunteering to work for a company for free for 30 days so they can see how I perform. Hopefully they will then hire me. Do you think this is a good idea?”

While the idea of volunteering to work for a company for free to get your foot in the door sounds good in theory, in reality, it is simply a bad idea. There are overwhelming legal and ethical issues.

                      

公平工作的节目总监保尔﹒布兰特纳对这一问题提出了一些非常有见地的看法:如果该公司应你的要求让你工作,那么很多情况下这一雇主实在违反法律。尽管对那些志愿为私营的

The amount of sleep an individual requires varies from person to person, but most of adult average eight hours of sleep.

                

Sleep plays a important role in our daily life.睡眠时,们疲劳不堪的身体器官及组织可以得以休整并恢复精力,睡眠也使得我们的身体恢复到积极的状态.A person’s lifestyle is another variable in the amount of time one needs to achieve the healthy balance.

The quality of a person’s sleep also factors into the sleep equation.当我们迅速进入梦中时,we either fall into a deep, restful sleep, or into a shallow, light sleep. One who normally needs eight hours of sleep, but sleeps shallowly, will most likely awaken feeling tired. In c

A Commentary by Jerry Kelly at

www.oen100.com

 

 

When I was young and intemperate, I used to daydream about raiding Oxford's Bodleian Library in order to return to Ireland ancient Irish manuscripts looted by English officials 350 years ago.  Of course, the Bodleian Library claims that those manuscripts were bought legitimately, just like the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum.

 

Well, let's take a look at the chain of title for those spectacular marble sculptures which once circled the top of the Parthenon in Athens.

 

In the early 19th century, Greece was a conquered colony of the Ottoman Empire.  Between 1801 and 1812, the English Earl of Elgin bribed local Ottoman officials to allow him to ship to England as much of the Parthenon as his workers could carry.  This would be like Germans during WW
