Don't worry, be happy and, according to new research, you will also be healthy.It is estimated that over the course of one year, Americans suffer 1 billion colds. But new research shows that all it may take to avoid this common affliction is a positive and upbeat attitude.People who are energetic, happy and relaxed are less likely to catch a cold than those who are depressed, nervous or angry, finds a new study published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine.Healthy volunteers first underwent an emotional assessment in which they were asked to rate their tendency to experience positive and negative emotions--how often they felt pleased, relaxed, happy, or anxious, depressed and hostile. The subjects were next given a squirt up the nose of a rhinovirus, the nasty little germ that causes colds.Researchers then watched the volunteers to see who came down with a cold and waited to see how the unlucky ill manifested their cold symptoms."We found that people who regularly experience positive emotions, when exposed to rhinovirus, are relatively protected from developing illness," said Dr. Sheldon Cohen, lead author of the study and a psychology professor at Carnegie Mellon University.Although positive people showed a greater resistance to colds, negative people did not necessarily get sick more often."Increases in positive emotional styles were linked with decreases in the rate of clinical colds, but a negative emotional style had no effect on whether or not people got sick," Cohen said.So how can your emotions influence your health? In simple terms, when the brain is "happy" it sends messages to our organs that help keep the body healthy and sound."It's like a drug that is released by your state of mind and simply changing the state of mind can produce effects on the rest of the body through the nervous system and hormones," said Dr. Neil Shulman, associate professor of medicine at Emory University School of Medicine and author of Doc Hollywood. "Your chance of developing the common cold, pneumonia, or even cancer may very well be decreased by keeping your brain in a healthy state."In addition, happy and relaxed people are prone to better health practices than their negative and stressed counterparts. They are more likely to get plenty of sleep and to engage in regular exercise, and have been shown to have lower levels of certain stress hormones.Shulman says the study shows there are some simple things you can do to improve your chances of staying healthy."The take-home message is that we have very healthy ways that we can improve our overall well-being that don't cost money and that don't require a wait in the doctor's office," he said. 根据新的研究结果显示,如果你心情愉快、无忧无虑,你就会身体健康。据估计,美国一年中有十亿人患感冒。而新的研究表明只要有积极乐观的态度,就可以避免这一常见的疾病。《心理医学》杂志发表的一项新的研究表明:精力充沛、快乐轻松的人和沮丧、紧张、易怒的人相比不容易得感冒。身体健康的志愿者们首先接受了一次情绪测试,来测定他们的情绪是趋向于积极的还是消极的,也就是他们感到高兴、舒适、快乐或是焦虑、沮丧、敌对的频率。接着志愿者的鼻子上方被喷射一种能够引起感冒的可恶的微小细菌——鼻病毒。然后研究者们观察那些志愿者,看谁先感染上感冒,并等着看那些不幸患病的人表现何种感冒症状。该研究的主要领导者、卡内基梅隆大学的心理学教授谢尔登·科恩士说:“我们发现情绪一贯积极乐观的人遭受鼻病毒侵袭时,相对来说不太容易感染疾病。”尽管积极的人对感冒表现出较强的抵抗力,消极的人也不一定更容易经常感冒。“情绪越乐观,感冒的几率就越低,但是消极的情绪并不会对是否感冒产生影响。”科恩说。那么情绪到底是怎样影响你的健康的呢?简单的说,当大脑“轻松愉快”的时候,它会向各个器官发出有助于保持身体健康的信号。“这就像是你的情绪释放的一种麻醉剂,只要改变情绪就可以通过神经系统和激素对身体的其他部分产生影响,” 埃莫里大学医学院的医学副教授、影片《好莱坞医生》的作者尼尔·舒尔曼士说,“保持健康的情绪可以有效地降低感冒、肺炎甚至癌症发生的可能性。”另外,心情轻松愉快的人往往比消极紧张的人有更好的保健习惯。他们更容易有充足的睡眠,进行有规律的身体锻炼,而且他们体内某种紧张激素的含量较低。舒尔曼说研究显示你可以通过做一些简单的事情来保持身体健康。他说:“我们的建议是通过健康的方法来改善整个健康状况,这不需要花钱也不需要在医生的办公室前等待。” /200812/57594There was a perfect man and a perfect woman.

年度“时尚黑名单”出炉 贝嫂最没品味A decade after singling out the Spice Girls as fashion atrocities, Mr. Blackwell put just one of them -- Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham -- at the top of his 48th annual worst-dressed list released Tuesday.The acid-tongued critic who was designing dresses for the rich and famous when he originated the list in 1960, skewered entertainment's biggest stars in the latest compilation of fashion follies, including Fergie, Kelly Clarkson, Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson.Blackwell heaped venom on Beckham, his No. 1 choice on the list."Forget the fashion spice, wearing a skirt would suffice! In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty posh can really wreck-em," he said in a statement.Blackwell listed the Spice Girls as No. 1 in his 1998 worst-dressed list, deriding the group as "the only spices on the planet that have no taste."The top 10 roll-call of fashion dishonors also included:No. 2. Amy Winehouse -- "Exploding beehives above, tacky polka-dots below, she's part 50's carhop horror."No. 3. Mary Kate Olsen -- "She resembles a tattered toothpick-trapped in a hurricane."No. 4. Fergie -- "Yes, when it comes to couture chaos, guess it's all in a name!"The rest of the top 10 list included Kelly Clarkson, Eva Green, Avril Lavigne, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan and Alison Arngrim.Missing from the list was Britney Spears, who has made it many times before."I felt that it was inappropriate at this time to make comment, when her personal life is in such upheaval. I hope 2008 is a better year for her," Blackwell said.Blackwell also released a Fabulous Fashion Independents list that included Reese Witherspoon, Jemima Khan, Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, Katie Holmes, Kate Middleton, Katherine Heigl and Cate Blanchett. 布莱克维尔第48届年度 “时尚黑名单”于本周二出炉。在“辣”组合被评为该“最差穿着榜”冠军的十年后,布莱克维尔将今年的冠军颁给了“辣”成员之一“高贵辣”维多利亚#8226;贝克汉姆。时尚“毒舌”布莱克维尔从1960年开始编撰该榜,当时他专为社会名流设计时装。今年,圈的一些大牌明星遭到了布莱克维尔的炮轰,其中包括菲吉、凯莉#8226;克拉克森、林赛#8226;洛翰和杰西卡#8226;辛普森。而对于今年的“冠军”维多利亚#8226;贝克汉姆,布莱尔维尔给出了恶毒的评价:“曾经那个时尚的辣不见了,那个辣随便穿件短裙就够时尚!现在爱翘嘴的‘高贵辣’穿着一件又一件紧身的奇装异,简直能把它们给撑爆了。”1998年,“辣”组合被布莱尔维尔评为当年的最差穿着榜冠军,他评价该组合是“地球上唯一没有味道(品味)的香料”。十大最差穿着名人包括:第二名 埃米#8226;怀恩豪斯。点评:“头上顶着炸开的马蜂窝,下面是俗不可耐的波卡圆点,活脱一个50多岁的饭店务员。”第三名 玛丽#8226;凯特#8226;奥森。点评:“像个被困在飓风中的衣衫褴褛的牙签。”第四名 菲吉。点评:“堪称时尚灾难的代名词。”其他几位上榜明星包括凯莉#8226;克拉克森、伊娃#8226;格林、艾薇儿、杰西卡#8226;辛普森、林赛#8226;洛翰和艾莉森#8226;安格里姆。曾多次上榜的布兰妮今年则“幸免于难”。布莱克维尔说:“在这个时候对她评头论足不太合适,现在她的生活一团乱。我希望她2008年能交好运。”布莱尔维尔还公布了一份“时尚佳人名单”,其中包括里斯#8226;威瑟斯彭、杰尼玛#8226;卡恩、碧昂丝、安吉利娜#8226;茱丽、海伦#8226;米伦、妮可#8226;基德曼、凯蒂#8226;赫尔姆斯、凯特#8226;米德尔顿、凯瑟琳#8226;黑格尔和凯蒂#8226;布兰切特。 /200803/31399

A survey of 16 to 24 year olds has found that 75% of them feel they "couldn't live" without the internet.  一项针对英国16至24岁年轻人的调查发现,75%的年轻人认为他们“没有网络活不下去。”  The report, published by online charity YouthNet, also found that four out of five young people used the web to look for advice.  这份由网络慈善团体YouthNet所作的调查显示,有4/5的青年人将网络作为一种寻求咨询的途径。  About one third added that they felt no need to talk to a person face to face about their problems because of the resources available online.  还有1/3的青年人认为,根本没必要和他人进行面对面的交流,因为任何需要的信息都可以通过网络来获取。  Despite high-profile examples of internet security breaches, such as the recent incident of phishing email scams, 76% of the survey group thought the internet was a safe place "as long as you know what you're doing".  尽管互联网安全隐患重重,比如最近发生的多起网络钓鱼邮件和垃圾邮件,但76%的受访者都认为,只要自己心里有数,网络还是安全的。  "Probably the middle-aged are the most vulnerable," said Open University psychologist Graham Jones.  英国开放大学的心理学家葛莱姆·琼斯认为,或许中年人更容易在网上上当受骗。  "I think children, teenagers and people under their mid-20s have grown up with technology and they understand it deeply," he said.  他说:“因为孩子、青少年以及20来岁的年轻人是伴随着科技成长的一代,他们接受新事物的能力更强。”  Mr Jones thinks it is the parents who need to become more sophisticated.  琼斯认为,父母们应该更多地去了解网络。  "One of the biggest problems for children is not that they are vulnerable but that their parents don't know what they're doing," he said.  “孩子们最大的问题之一不是他们易在网上上当受骗,而是他们的父母不了解孩子的所作所为。”  "It's important that parents have full understanding of the internet and its risks--younger people need parental direction," he said.  “全方位地了解网络及其风险对于家长来说至关重要。年轻人需要家长的指导和引导。”  Its author, Professor Michael Hulme of Lancaster University, names this age group "digital natives" as they have grown up in an environment rich with computer and mobile technology.  调查报告的作者、兰卡斯特大学的迈克尔·赫米教授认为,电脑和手机等电子设备已经充斥了当今社会生活的方方面面,在这种环境中长大的年轻人可以称得上是“数码一代”。  "For young people the internet is part of the fabric of their world and does not exist in isolation from the physical world," he said.  他说,对于年轻人来说,互联网与他们的日常生活息息相关、不可分割。  Youthnet runs websites offering advice, information and volunteering opportunities to young people.  Youthnet网站致力于向年轻人提供建议、资讯和志愿者的工作机会。  "The need for a safer, trusted [online] place has never been greater," said Fiona Dawes, Youthnet's chief executive.  Youthnet网站的首席执行官菲奥娜·当斯说,年轻人需要一个更安全、更可信赖的网络,而且这种需求变得越来越迫切。  "Youthnet will be taking the insights of this report to heart as we plan the future of our services."  “Youthnet 网站在规划未来务的时候,是会认真考虑这份调查报告中年轻一代的需求的。” /200911/88138

  When you're considering goals for this year, don't forget to examine your work life. What changes could you make to become a more productive and pleasant colleague?当你在拟订今年的目标时,别忘了回顾一下你的职场生活。你可以做出哪些改进,来让自己在工作中变得更有创造力、更令人愉快?Experts offer this list of common bad habits at work -- and how to break them:专家们列举了工作中普遍存在的陋习,以及改正它们的方法:* Planning poorly. Do you spend your first hour at work wondering what you should work on today? "So many people, when they leave their office at 4 to 6 pm, really have no clue what they're going to do first thing the following morning," said Glenn Davis, president of the Next Step Group, which recruits sales and sales management professionals for software and other companies. It's more efficient to plan your next day before you leave work.计划性差。你是不是每天都要在办公室先花上一个小时考虑该做什么? Next Step Group公司总裁Glenn Davis说:“很多人在下午4-6点离开办公室时,对第二天一早要做什么一点头绪也没有。下班前为第二天做个计划会提高效率。”Next Step Group公司专门替软件公司及其它公司招聘销售及销售管理人员。* Spending the day in "email reaction mode." Answering every email message as it comes in may make you seem responsive, but it's not productive. "You feel like you're being a hero because you're dealing with all your email," said Valerie Frederickson, CEO amp; founder of Valerie Frederickson amp; Co., an HR executive search and consulting firm. "But it has nothing to do with achieving your goals."一整天都处于“电子邮件响应模式”:每收到一封电子邮件就立刻去回复。这个做法也许表现出你能积极响应,但并不是一定有成效。人力资源执行官搜索及咨询公司Valerie Frederickson的CEO和创始人Valerie Frederickson说:“你感觉自己像个英雄,因为你处理完了所有的电子邮件,但是这对于完成目标没帮助。”* Abusing work-from-home privileges. Yes, you save time when you work from home by not commuting. But too many people are easily sidetracked by the laundry, their kids, a quick errand. "People like to say, 'I get so much more done'" working from home, Davis said. And some do -- but not everyone. If you work from home, make sure you're putting in a full day's work -- and that you're accessible to your colleagues during the workday.滥用在家办公权利。是的,在家工作让你不必把时间浪费在路上。但是有很多人会因为洗衣、孩子和突发状况不能集中精神。Davis说:“人们喜欢说,在家办公,‘我能多做这么多'”。有些人的确是,但并不是每个人。如果你在家办公,确保你安排了一整天的工作量,而且在工作日,同事们都能联系到你。* Putting personal life before work. Everyone has emergencies from time to time. But it's annoying to have to repeatedly fill in for the colleague who is late every morning because he's checking on his home remodeling project, or who misses an entire afternoon because she scheduled a routine dentist appointment for 1:30 pm.个人生活先于工作。每个人都会时不时有紧急事情,但有些情况让人恼怒,比如你总是要顶替一位每天早晨由于检查家庭装修而迟到的同事,或顶替下午1:30去看牙医而整个下午都没来的同事。* Being late for meetings. People who show up 5 or 10 minutes late for a meeting cause a "domino effect," Davis said. Meetings later that day may be thrown off schedule because the earlier ones ran late. And people who show up on time feel their time is being wasted.开会迟到。按Davis的话说,开会晚到5或10分钟会引起“多米诺”效应。因为前面的会议开晚了,那么当天安排在后面的会议的时间都会被打乱。而且准时到会的人也会感觉自己的时间被浪费了。* Not taking care of health and hygiene. Leslie G. Griffen, an HR consultant and career coach, is sometimes hired by companies to approach an employee who doesn't bathe and ask them to improve their hygiene. The problem is twofold, said Griffen, principal of The Griffen Group. A sloppy appearance will cause a poor first impression. Also, "if your hygiene is bad, your health is probably bad," Griffen said. An added benefit of eating well and exercising: You'll have more energy.不注意个人健康和卫生。人力资源顾问及职场教练Leslie G. Griffen有时候会应公司聘请去教导不洗澡的员工,要求他们改善个人卫生。Griffen Group公司总裁Griffen说,这个问题会带来双重恶果:懒散的外表会给人不好的第一印象,而且“如果你的个人卫生不好,那么健康或许也不好。”良好饮食及锻炼的一个额外好处是,你会有更多精力。* Using inappropriate humor. Your coworkers may not appreciate your sense of humor. Skip the off-color or "racially targeted" jokes, Griffen said. And be careful about sensitive subjects such as politics and religion.不适当的幽默。你的同事们可能并不欣赏你的幽默。Griffen说,避免那些下流或“具有种族歧视”的笑话,而且注意政治和宗教这些敏感话题。* Not caring about your work. People like coworkers who are enthusiastic about what they do. Show that you take pride in your job by presenting yourself well, communicating clearly and doing your best work.不关心自己的工作。人们喜欢对工作有热情的同事。用良好的举止、清晰的交流和最好的业绩来表现出你以工作为荣。 /200901/60862

  Iran has warned suntanned women and girls who looked like "walking mannequins" will be arrested as part of a new drive to enforce the Islamic dress code。  伊朗警方一名高官近日警告说,晒黑脸的妇女和女孩看上去就像“会走路的假人”,招摇过市有损社会风气,一旦发现将对其实施逮捕以维护伊斯兰教义。  "The public expects us to act firmly and swiftly if we see any social misbehaviour by women, and men, who defy our Islamic values. In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins. We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them," said Brig Hossien Sajedinia, Tehran's police chief。  德黑兰警察局局长侯赛因-萨杰迪表示:“一旦发现任何人公然实施藐视伊斯兰教义、违反社会秩序的不正当行为,公众希望警方快速行动予以坚决打击。在德黑兰北部,我们已经发现很多被太阳晒得黝黑的妇女和女孩,活像会走路的假人。今后,我们决不容忍这种现象出现。警方将先对这些妇女和女孩提出警告,如果再犯则毫不含糊对其实施拘役或监禁。”  Iran's Islamic leadership has in recent weeks launched a campaign to persuade the population that vice is sweeping the streets of the capital. National law stipulates that women wear headscarves and shape shrouding cloaks but many women, particularly in the capital, spend heavily on fashions that barely adhere to the regulations。  伊朗伊斯兰教领导人最近几周持续举行布道活动,大讲堕落如何布满了整个德黑兰。据悉,伊朗国家法律明确规定妇女必须带头巾、穿宽松的长袍,但是很多女性,尤其是德黑兰的女子穿着越来越时尚,和法律教义背道而驰。  The announcement came shortly after a leading cleric warned that women who dressed immodestly disturbed young men and the consequent agitation caused earthquakes。  而此前伊朗神职人员认为,衣着不端庄的女人引诱了年轻男子,从而导致地震频发。 /201005/104193

"We wanted to have something special if you really have a good day on Wall Street."One bank in Kazakhstan offered a diamond-encrusted credit card for well-heeled clients with incomes over 0,000.

They praised rat meat a healthy alternative to rice."Bailout" was crowned as the US word of the year, and the financial crisis also had implications in Russia where vodka consumption fell sharply and the National Alcohol Association lobby group in Moscow said vodka stockpiles were six times higher than usual.A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees, making some extra money on the side. After 14 years, the couple are divorcing. /200812/60020Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I'd be twins!" He was a natural motivator.If an employee was having a bad day, Michael was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Michael and asked him, "I don' t get it. You can' t be positive all the time. How do you do it?"Michael replied, each morning I wake up and say to myself 'Mike, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.""Yeah, right. It isn't that easy." I protested."Yes it is, " Michael said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line is: It's your choice how you live life. " I reflected on what Michael said.Soon thereafter, I left the big enterprise that I had worked in for years to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often though about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it. Several years later, I heard Michael was involved in a serious accident, falling off 60 feet from a communications tower.After l8 hours of surgery, and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back. I saw Michael about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see my scars?" I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place."The first thing that went through my mind was the well being of my soon-to-born daughter," Michael replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, remembered I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live." "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked. Michael continued, "... the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the operation room and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, l 'He's a dead man.' I knew I needed to take action." "What did you do?" I asked. "Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me" said Michael. "She asked me if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes,' I said. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled", 'Gravity'" Over their laughter, I told them, 'I'm choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead'."Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.I learned from him that every day we have a choice to live fully. Attitude is everything. 迈克尔是那种你总想恨一恨的家伙。他总是能保持良好的情绪,总是能说出很多积极的话来。如果有人问他近况怎样,他就会答道“如果我能再好点的话,那我一定还可以再分身成两个人呢!”他是天生的乐观派。如果哪位雇员的一天过的并不如意的话,迈克尔就会告诉他怎样去从事情好的方面去看待问题。他处理事情的这种方式让我很是好奇,于是有一天,我找到迈克尔问道“我不太明白,你不可能一直这么乐观的吧?!你是怎样做到的?”他回答我说,每天早上我一醒来就会对自己说,“麦克,今天你有两种选择,你可以选择好心情当然也可以选择坏心情,于是我就会选择让自己心情好起来;每当有不好的事情发生,我可以选择成为受害者,也可以选择从中学到东西,于是我就会选择从这件事中总结教训,从而明白一些道理;每当有人到我这里来抱怨时,我可以选择接受他们的抱怨,也可以选择为他们指出生活中的积极面,我选择后者。”“是这样没错,但却并不容易做到啊”我质疑道。“其实要做到并不难,”迈克尔说,“生活中充满了选择,当你把所有多余的东西删掉时,就只剩下选择了。你选择怎样去应对生活中的种种情形,你选择他人如何影响你的情绪,你选择要自己的心情好还是坏。说到底,最终还是你自己选择该去怎样生活。”我默默揣着迈克尔的这番话。不久之后,我离开工作了多年的大企业开始自己创业,我们便失去了联系。每当我对生活中的种种做出选择而不是去消极应对时,我时常会想起迈克尔。没过几年,我便听说他遭遇了一起很严重的事故—从一座通讯大楼的60英尺处摔了下来。在历时18小时的手术抢救以及随后数周的精心呵护之后,迈克尔出院了,他的后背被植入了钢棍。我问他感觉怎样,他回答我说“如果我能再好点的话,那我一定还可以再分身成两个人呢!想要见识一下我的疤痕吗?”我拒绝了,但却问了他在事故发生的那一刻脑中在想些什么。“我所想的第一件事就是我即将出世的女儿以后的幸福生活,”迈克尔回答我说,“当我躺在地上的时候,我依然牢记我还有两种选择,我可以选择继续活下去,也可以选择就这样死去,我要活下去。”“你当时不害怕吗,有没有失去知觉呢?”我问。迈克尔继续说道,“那些救护人员棒极了,他们不停的告诉我说我会好起来的。但当他们把我推进手术室时,我分明看见了那些医护人员脸上的表情,我很害怕。他们眼神里所流露出来的神情明明就是在说,‘这是一个死人’。我知道自己必须要有所行动才行。”“你是怎样做的?”我问他,“哦,有一个人高马大的护士冲我问问题,”迈克尔回忆道,“她问我是否对什么东西过敏。‘是的’我说于是医生和护士们都停下手中的活儿等我回答。我深吸一口气,笑着说 “地心引力”,在他们的笑声中,我说“我选择继续活下去,希望你们为我做手术时把我看成是有生命的,而不是一具死尸。”迈克尔活了下来,多亏了那些医术高明的医生,当然还有他自己那令人惊叹的态度。迈克尔让我懂得了一个道理,那就是人生中的每一天我们都可以选择充实的活着,态度决定一切。 /200811/54702

Marcus)说,笔记本电脑本质上是不符合人体工程学的,除非你身高只有两英尺。When you work at a computer, the keyboard should be at elbow height, so your upper and lower arms form an angle of 90 degrees or more and your forearms are supported by armrests. The monitor should be roughly at eye level so you can lean back in a chair with back support.当你在电脑前工作时,键盘应该和肘部齐高,这样你的大臂与小臂成90度角或更大的角度,小臂可以放在椅子扶手上。显示器应该大概和眼睛处于同一水平线,这样你就能往后靠在椅背上。But most users simply set their laptops on a desk or table. The keyboard is too high, which makes your arms reach up, your shoulders hunch and your wrists bend down. The monitor is too low, which pulls your head and neck forward and down and puts a strain on your back.但是,大部分使用者都只是把笔记本电脑放在书桌或是普通桌子上。键盘放得太高,你必须把胳膊伸得老高,耸起肩膀弯着手腕。显示器太低,你的脑袋和脖子都必须往前下方伸,使你的背部紧张。That's OK if you use your laptop occasionally, for short periods. But if you use one for hours at a stretch -- as do millions of college students, business travelers, telecommuters, -gamers and growing numbers of office workers -- you're setting yourself up for muscle problems that can make your entire upper body hurt.如果你只是偶尔、短时间地用一下笔记本电脑,这样做不会有太大问题。但是,如果你一坐就是几个钟头(就像好几百万大学生、商务旅客、网络上班族、游戏玩家,以及越来越多的办公室白领一样),那你就是在和自己的肌肉过不去,这可能会让你的整个上身疼痛。Ergonomics experts have warned about laptop problems for years -- mostly in vain. People continue to abandon bulky desktops in favor of the ever-sleeker, lighter portables. And WiFi connections let us use laptops anywhere -- in bed, on the floor -- in all kinds of contorted positions.人体工学专家多年来一直在提醒笔记本电脑的问题,但是往往是徒劳无功。人们继续丢掉笨重的台式电脑,转向更加轻薄的笔记本电脑。而且无线上网技术还让我们可以在任何地方使用笔记本电脑──床上、地板上──姿势也可以千奇百怪。'People think, 'How can a mouse or a keyboard hurt you?'' says Thomas Caffrey, founder of Myofactors LLC, which does ergonomic consultations for factories and offices (including The Wall Street Journal). 'But poor technique can significantly overload the anatomy over time.'Myofactors LLC的创始人托马斯·凯弗雷(Thomas Caffrey)说,人们会想,一个鼠标或键盘怎么会使你受到伤害呢?但是随着时间的推移,糟糕的姿势可能会对人体带来明显的重负。该公司为工厂和办公室(包括《华尔街日报》)提供人体工学咨询务。 A wrong position can cause pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back and arms, as well as headaches, pains in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and carpal tunnel syndrome, in which pressure on wrist nerves causes tingling and numbness in the hands.错误的姿势不但可以造成颈、肩、背和手臂的疼痛和僵硬,而且还会导致头痛、颞下颌关节疼痛和腕管综合症。腕管综合症患者的腕部神经受到压迫,导致手上产生刺痛或是麻木的感觉。There are simple ways to make a laptop more ergonomic. The key is to separate the keyboard and the monitor so each can be placed at the proper height:有几种简单的方法可以让使用笔记本电脑更符合人体工学。关键是要将键盘和显示器分开,这样两者可以分别放在合适的高度。-- Laptop stands. Getting the monitor higher is simple -- setting it on a pile of books will do. Or you can buy stands ( and up) that hold your laptop vertically; some let you adjust the height and angle. Either way, you'll need a separate keyboard so your hands aren't at an impossible angle.-笔记本电脑架。把显示器放高很容易──把它放在一摞书上就可以了。你也可以买个架(最低20美元),把你的笔记本电脑垂直放置,有些架还可以调整高度和角度。无论哪种方法,你都需要一个单独的键盘,这样你的手才不必弯成一个高难度的角度。-- External keyboards. These sell for as little as ; wireless versions for and up. Logitech makes a wireless-keyboard-and-laptop-stand set for . A keyboard that slopes away from you provides the best angle for your hands and wrists.-外接键盘。最低只要20美元,无线键盘至少60美元。Logitech生产的一种无线键盘加笔记本架的套装价格是80美元。如果键盘能朝远离你的方向倾斜一个角度,你的手、腕就可以处于最佳角度。-- Keyboard tray. Unless you're really tall, setting the keyboard at elbow level means a few inches below desk height. Attachable keyboard drawers range from to 0. If your desk isn't wide or deep enough, try setting the keyboard on your lap with a small cushion under the front edge. (Don't use a laptop on your unprotected lap for long; they can get hot .)-键盘托架。除非你是个小巨人,否则把键盘放在肘部的高度也就是只比书桌低几英寸。可附键盘托架价格从30美元到200美元不等。如果你的书桌不够长也不够宽,那么试着把键盘放在你的腿上,在前缘下面放一个小垫子。(不要把笔记本电脑单放在腿上太长时间,电脑会很烫的。)-- External mouse. If you find the built-in mouse awkward, get an external mouse or keypad ( to ) and set it close to the keyboard. 'The farther your hand has to go from your body, the more burden there is on the upper extremities,' says Mr. Caffrey.-外接鼠标。如果你觉得内置的鼠标不舒,那么就配一个外接鼠标或是袖珍键盘(14-75美元),把它放在键盘旁边。凯弗雷说,你的手伸的越远,承受的负担越重。-- Docking stations. These allow you to attach a separate monitor, keyboard and mouse and use your laptop as a central processing unit (CPU). Prices start around . This is a good solution for workers who need a laptop for traveling as well as long periods of office work.-扩展坞。它让你可以外接显示器、键盘和鼠标,把你的笔记本电脑当成一个中央处理器。起价约为70美元。对于那些需要在办公室中长时间使用笔记本电脑,同时也需要在旅途中使用的人来说,这是个很好的解决方案。-- Portable solutions. Lapdesks and mini-stands ( to ) make laptops more ergonomic on the go. They raise the monitor slightly by elevating the back edge of the computer. Tamara James, ergonomics director at Duke University, tells students who bring laptops to class that setting them on a two- or three-inch binder will have the same effect. Mr. Caffrey worries that mini-stands may be hard on wrists and hands and suggests reversing the angle to elevate the keyboard instead. Try alternating between the two positions if you're on the laptop a lot.-便携解决方案。电脑桌和迷你架(4-50美元)让笔记本电脑在使用中更加符合人体工学。它们抬高了电脑的后缘,进而略微升高了显示器。杜克大学人体工学主任塔马拉o詹姆斯(Tamara James)告诉那些把笔记本电脑带到课堂上的学生们说,把电脑放在一个两、三英寸高的活页夹上也会达到同样的效果。凯弗雷担心迷你架可能会使得腕和手紧张,他建议反过来把键盘抬高。如果你经常使用笔记本电脑,那么就试着轮换使用这两种姿势。'Don't just put your laptop on your desk -- that's probably the worst place for it,' says Ms. James, who says people are usually amenable to such suggestions once muscle strain sets in. 'Pain is a pretty good motivator,' she says.詹姆斯说,不要只是把笔记本电脑放在书桌上,书桌或许是放笔记本电脑最糟糕的地方。她说,人们一旦出现肌肉紧张的症状,就会非常愿意接受她的建议。她说,疼痛是种不错的动力。 /200902/62360

  Is there an antidote to anxiety? "I'm very frightened," said Julie White. But she has a remedy: the stretching and deep breathing of yoga. The practice is so calming that after the terror upgrade, White made an upgrade of her own--from one class a day to two. she says, "Yoga is my tranquilizer."”You may find the lotus pose hopelessly warm and fuzzy in the face of terror. But there are a host of activities, from working out to going for a massage, that can temper the anxiety. Many of these techniques have been used for decades, if not centuries; now advances in science are showing they can reduce the hormones associated with stress and even affect brain activity. The common trait among all: maintaining control and recognizing that our concerns are a natural response to the world we live in.The first step toward combating fear is identifying it. Keep in mind that headaches, stomachaches, sleeplessness and rapid heartbeat are all symptoms of anxiety. Confront the emotion head-on by naming it, even saying, "I feel fear about this," says Saki Santorelli, executive director of the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Center for Mindfulness. Acknowledging anxiety makes us less passive, less vulnerable and, as a result, more able to cope.Understand that fear is a component of stress, the complex fight-or-flight response ingrained in us since the cave days. When we're confronted with danger, epinephrine (adrenaline) starts pumping, the heart speeds up, blood pressure increases, breathing quickens.One of the most efficient ways to reduce stress is to focus inward on one thing we can effectively control: our own breath. At the Mind/Body Medical Institute, participants elicit a "relaxation response," repeating a word - anything from "om" to "Hail Mary"--silently as they exhale. In numerous studies, Benson has found that the practice leads to lower blood pressure, slower breathing and an overall calm.Richard Davidson at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently found that a form of meditative breathing pioneered at the Center for Mindfulness can affect the brain. In a small, soon-to-be-published study, Davidson took brain images of 25 members of a biotech firm who practiced meditation six days a week for eight weeks. He found increased activation in the left side of the prefrontal part of the brain, an area associated with lower anxiety, positive emotion and inhibition of the amygdala, the brain's fear center.If sitting in one position for more than five minutes sounds impossible, you might try yoga. Concentrating on the physical intricacies of different poses forces you to filter out the "endless tape loops of chatter and fear," says Dr. Timothy McCall, medical editor of Yoga Journal, allowing you to be present in the moment. In so doing, you begin to clear the mind of future worries.That experience helps get rid of distorted thinking, says Stanford University psychiatrist Dr. David Burns. What to do in the face of terrorism? Accept your anxiety, but don't let it control you. And certainly don't ruminate on your own. "Anxiety feeds on itself," says Dr. Paul Appelbaum, president of the American Psychiatric Association, so talk to family and friends."Sharing the concern with others can be enormously helpful."”Scientists are finding that it can help to get outside your head completely. In a study of 60 schoolchildren traumatized by Hurricane Andrew, Tiffany Field, director of the University of Miami's Touch Research Institute, found that depression dropped in kids who received 30 minutes of massage twice a week for a month; kids who watched a relaxing showed no improvement. And cortisol levels, the body's marker for stress, declined significantly in the massage group. If massage isn't your thing, go for a vigorous walk, swim or bike ride. Exercise is not only good at keeping you fit; it reduces anxiety and depression, too.It may be difficult, but in troubled times, researchers say, people need to take comfort from life' s simplest pleasures.In a small study at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, Dr. O. J. Sahler found that bone-marrow transplant patients who listened to music reported less pain and nausea, and their transplants took less time to become functional. And, yes, laughter may be good medicine, too. Dr. Lee Berk, of the Loma Linda University School of Public Health, discovered that a group of students who watched a comic for an hour had marked reductions in epinephrine and cortisol levels. "If fear is too great," says Berk,"send in the clowns." Now that's something we can all meditate on. /200812/57595。

  Is it really possible for anyone to live happily to 100? The good news is that your body was designed to be 100 - you just have to get out of the way.Getting out of the way means taking an honest look at the habits and lifestyle you are living with today. Most of us have developed habits that limit our true health potential.But don't let these bad habits of the past discourage you - it is never too late to make new choices. What you did in the past can be changed, and your body will respond in kind. What matters is what you do from this moment forward.Top 5 Daily Habits for Your LongevityIt takes 14 to 21 days of repetitive behavior to form a new pattern in your brain. Once the pattern is formed, it becomes an automatic behavioral response. As you develop new healthy habits, they will begin to replace bad habits. These healthy lifelong habits are adapted straight from the time-tested traditions practiced by centenarians all around the world, and I can say with certainty that they will transform and rejuvenate you!Eat five small meals a day.In the Western culture, meals are taken three times a day, but it is much better to eat five smaller meals. When you eat smaller portions five times a day, you deliver a steady stream of nutrients, blood sugar, and energy to your body throughout the day. Additionally, eating this way is less taxing on the digestive and metabolic systems and also reduces your risk of heart disease.Climb the stairs instead of using elevators.The health benefits of a daily exercise program cannot be stressed enough. Regular exercise can help promote physiological well-being, strengthen the immune system, maintain joint mobility, increase energy - and the list goes on. Look for opportunities all through your day to work in physical activity. Power-walk, run, or ride your bike instead of driving. Begin a daily tai chi practice. Join a gym and actually go! Practice safely and watch your health results pile up.Laugh it up!We know from research that laughter and joy boost immune functions, especially the production of the natural killer cells that help protect the body from illness and cancer. Laughter also increases the release of endorphins, compounds that give you a sense of well-being, in your brain. Without a doubt, joyful people live longer and healthier lives.Drink 8 glasses of water every day.Water is essential for all healthy body functions. Centenarians from around the globe cite their native water as the source of their health and longevity - and the scientists agree with them. What they all have in common is pure water sources located far from any city, free from chemicals and toxins.Choose filtered water; the best filtration processes are the ones that use activated charcoal, which removes the impurities but leaves the water-soluble minerals. Also, do not store water in plastic containers because the polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) can leach into the water.Unwind with meditation.Stress is the root cause of most of the diseases that shorten our life span. In our modern society stress will continue to increase - unless you find techniques to manage it. Meditation is the best way to release tension and revitalize your being. It teaches you to breath properly, which is critical for eliminating up to 70% of your body's toxins and wastes. It also quiets your mind, lowers your stress hormones, and teaches self-discipline, which is a necessary attribute to achieving your health and longevity goals.Try this beginning meditation:Sit comfortably on a chair or the floor. Breathe naturally and close your eyes. Each time a thought appears, put it inside a balloon and let it fly up into the sky and disappear. Do this until the thoughts are exhausted. After a bit, your body will feel very light, and your mind will become still. The first few times it may take a while, but it will get easier and faster with practice.I hope you use these healthy habits for years to come! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me.May you live long, live strong, and live happy!-Dr. Mao /200809/48443

  People, despite getting teary-eyed, enjoy the numerous culinary uses of the onion. The gas containing vegetable is both a primary ingredient and a flavor enhancer in many dishes. If you think its list of uses end at the kitchen, you better think again. It is proven to be a medicinal wonder, as well as a metal polisher and an insect repellent. With its number of alternative uses, the onion may induce tears of joy to any DIY pundit. Here are seven of its tearfully - pleasing uses. 尽管会泪眼汪汪,人们还是很享受洋葱的大量烹饪用途。这种气味浓重的蔬菜既是众多菜肴的基本原料也是增味剂。如果你认为它的用途仅限于厨房,那你最好再想想。它还被明是药物奇迹、金属抛光剂以及驱虫剂。有了众多另类用法,洋葱可能会让任何一个DIY专家留下喜悦的眼泪。这里是它的7种令你含泪带笑的用途。1. Insect Bite Treatment - The onion’s enzymes are known for their anti-inflammatory effects, which makes the vegetable an unusually effective treatment. Rub some onion to a bee sting, mosquito bite or any insect bite. After a few hours, the pain, itchiness and swelling will subside.1、治疗虫咬——洋葱的酶以消炎作用著称,这使得它有不同寻常的治疗效果。在蜜蜂和蚊虫叮咬处用洋葱擦一下,几小时后,疼痛、瘙痒和肿胀就会消退。 2. Odor Remover - Chemical solutions, like pain and varnish, have strong odors that can adversely affect your health when inhaled. Instead of purchasing a pricey deodorizer, you might as well apply a mixture of onions and water on the smelly areas. The onion’s scent won’t completely eliminate the chemical stench, but it will surely bring the fumes to a more tolerable level.2、去除异味——化学溶剂,如油漆和指甲油,有很大的气味,吸入后会对身体很不利。与其买昂贵的除臭剂,你还不如用洋葱和水的混合物洒在有味道的地方。洋葱的气味虽然不能完全消除浓重的化学异味,但肯定能让空气保持在一个可忍受的水平上。3. Reliever for Burns - Burns sting and are prone to infection. Treat those inflammations by mixing onion slices with a little water. Apply the mixture to the affected areas and within a few hours, your burns will subside. Just reapply whenever necessary.3、缓解烧伤——烧伤刺痛而且容易感染。用几片洋葱加点水治疗炎症。把混合物涂抹在感染处,几小时内,你的烫伤就会消退。需要的地方还可以再次涂抹。 /201011/117422
