Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the ugliest of us all?Wall-to-wall mirrors in gyms and dance studios might stop women getting the exercise they need because women who work out in front of a mirror get discouraged and feel tired, Canadian researchers said.The study, published in the journal Health Psychology, focused on young women who exercised less than 15 minutes a week. It found that, regardless of how they viewed their bodies, women who worked out in front of a mirror felt worse, or no better, and less at peace after 20 minutes of activity."The mirrors make women more self-aware, they think of their shortcomings. Things like: 'I look fat, I should be more active'," said Kathleen Martin Ginis, lead author of the study, and a professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario."When women are more introspective, they might feel 'I'm not that great' unfortunately."The survey questioned 58 women with an average age of 22--young enough to be concerned about body image.Participants took turns on stationary bicycles, working out either in front of a mirror or with the mirror curtained over.And whether the participant felt comfortable about her body or not, the outcome was the same--women who did not have to watch themselves exercise felt calmer, more positive and more revitalized at the end of their session.Still, Martin Ginis stressed that mirrors can be positive and functional. "I don't want to convey the idea that we should rip out gym mirrors," she said, noting that exercisers often needed to see their form, or assess if they are using the correct muscles groups during strength training.But things were different for beginners. "For beginner exercisers, mirrors can be daunting," she said.”Martin Ginis suggested gyms provide areas without mirrors to encourage novice exercisers."Women don't need to exercise in a gym," she said. "Thirty minutes of walking, or hiking is good too. There are other ways to get your exercise." /200812/58541Every girl is different--if they were all alike, you wouldn't be interested in this one in particular, now would you? There are as many different ways to get a girl as there are girls, so let's go over some basic rules that'll win over any girl worth getting.Steps1. Have your own life.If you tend to fall into the "friend zone", this is especially important. Girls don't like guys who have no lives, and who cling to them like plastic wrap. Actually, some girls do like that, but usually for all the wrong reasons--either they're insecure and needy for attention, or they're control freaks who like to dominate guys. Unless you want to sign up for either of those scenarios, focus filling your time with your own friendships, interests, and goals.2. Make an impression.There's no one-size-fits-all solution here. What impresses one girl might make another roll her eyes. Your best bet is to be yourself. Demonstrate a unique skill or talent that you're proud of, something that sets you apart from the crowd. Not only will this make her feel good about you, but it can boost your confidence, too.3. Flirt.When you see or meet a girl you like, make brief eye contact. Smile. Strike up a casual conversation. Most importantly, relax. Don't think of her as the girl of your dreams; don't worry about what will happen if you make a bad joke, or you've got something stuck to your teeth. Enjoy interacting with this attractive, friendly girl whose path crossed yours. Live in the moment.4. Talk to her.Tell her what you really enjoy in life, what gets you excited and what you want to leap out of bed to pursue. Ask her what she really loves in life and what gets her excited. Be positive. If you have had a bad day, still greet them with pleasure and a big smile. Most importantly, listen.5. Be romantic.The stereotypical icons of romance (roses, candles and chocolate) can only go so far. Think about what really gets that special someone excited. Recognize what makes her unique, and find/do things for them that only they would appreciate. What are her quirky (perhaps secret) interests, obsessions and fantasies? Whenever she's shopping, talking, or watching a movie, what makes her eyes light up? Pay attention! Being romantic means acknowledging how special a person is, and that means demonstrating that you know--better than anyone else in the world--what makes her unique.6. Break the touch barrier.There are several ways to touch a girl without being sleazy. Hold her coat while she puts it on. Offer her your hand when she's stepping on an uneven surface. Hold out your elbow so she can link arms with you as you walk together. Hold out your hand so you can lead her through a crowd. Rub her hands when they're cold. These are all polite ways to get a little closer without being creepy. Still, if you see any signs of discomfort, stop! Otherwise, she'll probably enjoy the affection.7. Compliment her.If you really like this girl, you probably appreciate a lot of things about her. Why not let her know? If anything is different or new (her hairstyle, nail polish color, shirt), make note of it. The more unique the compliment, the better received it will be, unless she's shallow. Most girls like being complimented on something that makes them distinct, not something that plenty of other girls have. If you compliment her appearance, try to be original. Better yet, compliment her personality or skills.8. Make her laugh.Telling jokes or funny stories is the classic way to make a person laugh, but not the only one. Find out which are her favorite comedians, funny movies, or sitcoms. Watch them with her. Be bold and think of some antics that'll make her laugh. Tell her to dare you to do something, then do it (as long as it's not dangerous or illegal, of course).9. Ask her out.Invite her to go somewhere or do something with you--make sure it's something that you're both interested in. If you want, show her your world. Bring her somewhere that you feel comfortable and preferably, where you have or do something that you're proud of. Or, express interest in seeing her world. Is she a musician? Ask if you can see her perform. Is she a mathematician? Ask to her report or thesis. Or, just go out for lunch or a cup of coffee and get to know her better. /200901/60863

A woman is undergoing a cosmetic surgery.Cosmetic surgeryis altering not just how people look but how they feel by changing perceptions of middle age, a study showed Monday.Global research group AC Nielsen surveyed people in 42 countries and found 60 percent of Americans, the world's biggest consumers of cosmetic surgery and anti-aging skincare, believe their sixties are the new middle age.On a global scale, three out of five consumers believed forties was the new thirties."Our forties are being celebrated as the decade where we can be comfortable and confident in both personal and financial terms. The majority of global consumers really believe life starts at forty," AC Nielsen Europe President and CEO Frank Martell said.But that doesn't mean they want to look their age.Healthier eating, longer lifespans and higher disposable incomes have helped to hold back the years. However, for many people the biggest boost is coming from the surgeon's scalpel, the survey found.Confirming Russians' status among the world's biggest consumers of luxury goods, 48 percent of them, the highest percentage globally, said they would consider cosmetic surgery to maintain their looks. One in three Irish consumers, 28 percent of Italians and Portuguese, and one in four U.S., French and British consumers felt the same.本周一公布的一项调查显示,整容手术不仅改变着人的容貌,而且还通过改变人们对中年的理解使人的心理发生变化。AC尼尔森国际调查集团共对42个国家进行了调查,结果发现,60%的美国人认为60岁才是中年的开始。美国堪称世界上最大的整容手术和抗衰老护肤品消费国。从全世界范围来看,五分之三的消费者认为40来岁正值壮年。AC尼尔森集团欧洲区总裁兼首席执行官弗兰克·玛特尔说:“四十岁被认为是人生的黄金时期,这一阶段我们在性格和经济实力方面都变得成熟自信。所以,大多数全球消费者认为40岁才是美好生活的开始。”但是人们又不希望自己的外表看上去有40岁。虽然健康的饮食、寿命的延长和较高的收入对于人们延缓衰老起到了一定的作用。但调查显示,很多人认为整容手术才是永葆青春的最佳途径。对世界上最大的奢侈品消费国之一俄罗斯的调查显示,48%的俄罗斯消费者表示会考虑通过做整容手术来保持青春,这一比例为全世界最高。此外,三分之一的爱尔兰人,28%的意大利人、葡萄牙人,四分之一的美国人、法国人和英国人也有同样的想法。 Vocabulary:cosmetic surgery :整容手术 /200808/46490

西式糕点的起源:  古埃及、古希腊和古罗马是世界上较早开始制 作面包和蛋糕的国家。古埃及有一幅绘画,展示了公元前1175 年底比斯城的宫廷焙烤场面—有组织的烘焙作坊和模具在当时已经出现。据统计,当时古埃及帝国的面包和蛋糕品种已达16 种之多。而古希腊则最早将甜味剂加入食品。早期糕点所用的甜味剂是蜂蜜,蜂蜜蛋糕香甜松软,曾一度风行欧洲。古希腊人还制作了一种嵌有葡萄和杏仁的塔(tart,果馅饼),这也许是最早的蛋糕塔。在古罗马时代,随着焙烤技术的进步,点心变得更加精致化,奶酪蛋糕便源于这一时期。  布丁类:  布丁(pudding)是一种冷冻的甜品,类似果冻,主要材料为鸡蛋。它是一种英国的传统食品。现在布丁的制作方法是由当时的萨克逊人所传授下来的。中世纪的修道院则把“水果和燕麦粥的 混合物”称为“布丁”。这种布丁是在16 世纪伊丽莎白一世时代出现的,它由肉汁、果汁、水果干及面粉一起调配制成。17 世纪和 18 世纪的布丁是用蛋、牛奶以及面粉为材料制作而成。  · 绿茶布丁:Green Tea Pudding  · 芒果布丁:Mango Pudding  · 香草布丁:Vanilla Pudding  · 焦糖布丁: Cream Caramel / Caramel Custard /200912/90941

  法国当选生活质量最高的国家 伊拉克垫底International Living magazine -- a US leading resource for helping people live and travel overseas -- has released its 26th Annual Quality of Life Index. According to IL's comprehensive analysis, France again offers the greatest Quality of Life of any country, whilewar-tornIraq remains in last place.Despite high taxes, bureaucracy, and a high cost of living, France returns after taking over the top position last year."France has a good climate, unspoiled countryside, and great health care. And its capital, Paris, is arguably the world's most beautiful and romantic city on earth," said Laura Sheridan, Managing Editor of International Living magazine, who conducted the study. "Add to all this the world-competitive infrastructure and you can understand why we'd name France the world's best place to live."To produce the annual index, International Living considers nine categories: Cost of Living, Culture and Leisure, Economy, Environment, Freedom, Health, Infrastructure, Safety and Risk, and Climate. International Living uses statistics from a number of official government, non-profit, and media sources for much of the number crunching.The ed States -- which had ranked at the top of the charts for an impressive21 consecutive yearsuntil being dethroned in last year's survey -- regained its footing, and climbed back to the number 5 slot from number 7 in last year's survey.International Living's 2007 Quality of Life Index Highlights:Leaders1.

  If you're middle-aged and your memory's not what it used to be, check the bathroom scale, researchers warned, suggesting overweight people tend to score more poorly on tests of memory than their thinner peers do.The findings suggest that a heavier weight in middle age may mean a higher risk of dementia later in life.Reporting in the journal Neurology, the researchers speculated that higher rates ofcardiovascular diseaseor diabetes might help explain the link. But it's also possible that substances produced by fat cells, such as the hormone leptin, have direct effects on the brain.The study compared mental abilities to body mass index (BMI), a measurement of weight in relation to height used to define overweight and obesity. A BMI of 25 or more indicates overweight, and 30 or more is obese.The study also investigated the relationships between BMI and cognitive function in 2,223 healthy men and women between the ages of 32 and 62 in France through the use of four cognitive tests.The study found a higher BMI was associated with lower cognitive test scores. Results from a test involving word memory recall show people with a BMI of 20 remembered an average of nine out of 16 words, while people with a BMI of 30 remembered an average of seven out of 16 words. 研究人员提醒,如果你已步入中年,发现自己的不如从前,那么你得小心体重了。研究表明,超重的人记忆测试的得分要比较瘦的人低。研究发现,体重偏大的中年人今后患老年痴呆症的可能性较大。研究报告在《神经学》期刊上发表,研究人员推断,心血管疾病及糖尿病的高发现象可以解释其中的原因。此外,脂肪细胞所产生的物质,如瘦体激素,对大脑有直接影响。此项研究将调查对象的智力与体重指数进行了对比。体重指数指的是身高和体重之间的比例,主要用来衡量一个人是否偏胖或肥胖。体重指数为25或25以上的人偏胖,达到30或30以上的人则为肥胖。研究人员还对体重指数和认知功能间的关系进行了研究,他们在法国对2223位年龄在32岁至62岁间的健康男女进行了认知测试。研究发现,体重指数越大,认知测试的得分越低。其中一项"单词记忆"的测试结果表明,在16个单词中,体重指数为20的人平均能记住9个,而体重指数为30的人平均只能记住7个。 /200809/47095They're the butt of jokes and the target of stern laws. Now a study shows cousins run few risks in mating.Paul had taken his cousin Donna on a long trek through a remote part of Colombia. They had missed the day's meals and had only a jar of pickled vegetables and a bottle of drinks. So they repaired to hammocks strung up under the moonlight--and began a love story that has lasted 14 years and produced two chidren."I was shocked that I had fallen in love with my first cousin and surprised that this miracle had fallen on me," says Paul. " My only real concern was the medical issue."Paul, a graduate student in New York City, and Donna, a financial adviser, are just two in a long, flourishing line of kissin' first cousins. Charles Darwin wed his cousin Emma and spawned 10 children, including four brilliant scientists. Albert Einstein' s second wife Elsa was his first cousin. Queen Victoria said" I do" to hers. So have millions worldwide. In parts of Saudi Arabia, 39% of all marriages are between first cousins.In the U.S., though, the practice bears a stigma of inbreeding just this side of incest. The taboo is not only social but legislative; 24 states ban the marriage of first cousins: five others allow it only if the couple is unable to bear children. A major reason for this ban is the belief that kids of first cousins are tragically susceptible to serious congenital illnesses.That view may have to change. A comprehensive study published recently in the Journal of Genetic Counseling indicates such children run an only slightly higher risk of significant genetic disorders like congenital heart defects--about two percentage points above the average 3% to 4%. Says the study's lead author, Robin Bennett, president-elect of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, which funded the study: "Aside from a thorough medical family history, there is no need to offer any genetic testing on the basis of consanguinity alone".Publication of the study will do more than tweak public awareness; it will enlighten doctors who have urged cousin couples not to have children."Just this week," says Bennett, "I saw a 23-year-old woman who had had a tubal ligation because her parents were cousins and her doctor told her she shouldn' t have children." The study cites the case of" Amy," who had been in a relationship with her cousin for two years when, in 1996, she became pregnant. Her doctor suggested an abortion, and after a fruitless search for more information, she had the procedure. This week Amy wrote to the cousincouples.com website that she planned to get many copies of the report--"one that I will personally deliver to my ex-gynecologist."The American proscription against cousin marriages grew in the 19th century as wilderness settlers tried to distinguish themselves from the "savage" Indians, says Martin, author of the book Forbidden Relatives: The American Myth of Cousin Marriage. "The truth is that Europeans were marrying their cousins and Native Americans were not."And doesn' t God have stern words on the subject? Christie Smith, 37, a Nevada writer, says she felt guilty when she fell in love with her first cousin' s son Mark. "I was trying so hard to convince myself not to have these feelings," she recalls, "that I went to the Bible looking for confirmation that it was And what I found was the exact opposite: support for cousin marriages." The patriarch Jacob married two of his first cousins, Rachel and Leah.(The Roman Catholic Church has opposed cousin marriages for more than a millennium but gives dispensation to couples considered worthy.) Smith married Mark in 1999; this year she founded a group called CUDDLE- Cousins ed to Defeat Discriminating Laws through Education. wrong.As for Paul and Donna, they are doing fine. Their son, 9, and daughter, 8, are well adjusted and academically gifted. Still, the parents are protective of their family secret. (They declined to have their real names used for this story.) " When our kids started school here," says Donna, " I told them, ' You don' t have to hide this from anyone. But you don' t need to go advertising it." The medical ban is lifted; the social stain may take longer to disappear. /200812/58918

  Eating a meal made with "slow-release" carbohydrates, such as oatmeal or bran cereal, before you exercise may help you burn more fat, suggests a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition. Researchers assessed the rate of fat burn among eight healthy women after they ate two breakfasts: muesli with milk, peaches, yogurt and apple juice on one day; cornflakes with skim milk, white b with margarine and jam and an energy drink on another day. Both meals contained similar amounts of calories. The first breakfast (muesli) was a low-glycemic-index (GI) meal, the second was a high-GI meal. The glycemic index ranks foods based on how much they raise blood sugar. Lower-GI foods produce smaller spikes than higher-GI foods. Generally, foods that contain protein, fat and/or fiber—and are digested more slowly—fall lower on the GI scale than those that consist mostly of carbohydrate (e.g., white b). On the days when the women ate the low-GI breakfast, they burned nearly twice as much fat during a 60-minute walk as they did on the days when they ate the high-GI meal. Here’s why: Because the muesli (low-GI) breakfast was more slowly digested, it didn’t spike blood-glucose levels as high as the cornflake (high-GI) breakfast did. In turn, insulin levels didn’t spike as high either—which probably explains why the muesli-eating women burned more fat, says Ian MacDonald, Ph.D., director of research at the University of Nottingham Medical School. Insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat. So, lower levels of insulin might help you to burn fat. Bottom line: If you’re looking to burn more fat, pick low-GI foods, such as oatmeal, over high-GI foods, such as white toast, before your workout.营养学杂志近期发布一项研究,结果表明锻炼之前吃富含“释放缓慢”碳水化合物的一餐,比如燕麦或麸麦片,可以帮你燃烧更多脂肪。研究人员检测了8位健康女性吃完两种早餐后的燃脂率:一天是牛奶拌穆兹利混合麦片、桃、酸奶和苹果汁,另一天是脱脂牛奶拌玉米片、涂抹人造奶油和果酱的白面包和能量饮料。两顿早餐含有近似的热量值。前一种早餐属于低血糖指数的一餐,而后一种是高血糖指数的一餐。血糖指数衡量食物提升血糖的速度。与高血糖指数食物相比,低血糖指数食物让血糖含量波动更小。一般来说,含有蛋白质、脂肪和/或纤维——消化得更慢——属于低血糖指数一类,大部分是碳水化合物的食物(如白面包)不在其中。当那些女性摄入低血糖指数食物时,60分钟走路燃烧的脂肪是摄入高血糖指数食物的两倍。原因在于,穆兹利早餐消化得更慢,与高血糖指数的玉米片相比,前者使血液中葡萄糖水平变化幅度小。反过来,胰岛素水平也不会有大幅改变。因此,诺丁汉医学院研究主任,伊恩·麦克唐纳士认为这解释了吃穆兹利的女性为什么消耗了更多脂肪。在调节身体储存脂肪上,胰岛素起着相应作用。所以,胰岛素水平越低,对燃烧脂肪越有帮助。底线是:如果你想燃烧更多脂肪,在锻炼前选择低血糖指数的食物,比如燕麦片,别吃像白面包之类高血糖指数的东西 /201006/106500看了《奥巴马给女儿的信》我们一家一起冒险,很有感触,来和大家一起分享一下  Dear Malia andSasha,   I know that you‘ve both had a lot of fun these last two years onthe campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs,eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn‘thave let you have. But I also know that it hasn‘t always been easyfor you and Mom, and that as excited as you both are about that newpuppy, it doesn‘t make up for all the time we‘ve been apart. I knowhow much I‘ve missed these past two years, and today I want to tellyou a little more about why I decided to take our family on thisjourney。  亲爱的马莉亚和莎夏:  我知道这两年你们俩随我一路竞选都有过不少乐子,野餐、游行、逛州览会,吃了各种或许我和你妈不该让你们吃的垃圾食物。然而我也知道,你们俩和你妈的日子,有时候并不惬意。新来的小虽然令你们兴奋,却无法弥补我们不在一起的所有时光。我明白这两年我错过的太多了,今天我要再向你们说说为何我决定带领我们一家走上这趟旅程。  When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me—about howI‘d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the thingsI want. But then the two of you came into my world with all yourcuriosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill myheart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans formyself didn‘t seem so important anymore. I soon found that thegreatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. And I realizedthat my own life wouldn‘t count for much unless I was able toensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillmentin yours. In the end, girls, that‘s why I ran for President:because of what I want for you and for every child in thisnation。  当我还年轻的时候,我认为生活就该绕着我转:我如何在这世上得心应手,成功立业,得到我想要的。后来,你们俩进入了我的世界,带来的种种好奇、淘气和微笑,总能填满我的心,照亮我的日子。突然之间,我为自己谱写的伟大计划显得不再那么重要了。我很快便发现,我在你们生命中看到的快乐,就是我自己生命中最大的快乐。而我也同时体认到,如果我不能确保你们此生能够拥有追求幸福和自我实现的一切机会,我自己的生命也没多大价值。总而言之,我的女儿,这就是我竞选总统的原因:我要让你们俩和这个国家的每一个孩子,都能拥有我想要给他们的东西。  I want all our children to go to schools worthy of theirpotential—schools that challenge them, inspire them, and instill inthem a sense of wonder about the world around them. I want them tohave the chance to go to college—even if their parents aren‘t rich.And I want them to get good jobs: jobs that pay well and give thembenefits like health care, jobs that let them spend time with theirown kids and retire with dignity。  我要让所有儿童都在能够发掘他们潜能的学校就读;这些学校要能挑战他们,激励他们,并灌输他们对身处的这个世界的好奇心。我要他们有机会上大学,那怕他们的父母并不富有。而且我要他们能找到好的工作:薪酬高还附带健康保险的工作,让他们有时间陪孩子、并且能带着尊严退休的工作。 /200910/86912

For a classic look, pair a black jacket (like Sarah Jessica Parker's velvet number) with dark denim or a bright white tuxedo design (like Gwyneth Paltrow's) with a lighter or acid-washed pair. Think suit and match light colors with light and dark with dark.  当你准备穿着牛仔裤去上班的时候,得先考虑一下你的工作环境,该穿什么合适。如果你是位家或者律师,那么只怕在休闲星期五这天也得穿着西装裤。如果你处在一个更宽松自由的领域里,则可以尝试一下穿上修身的牛仔裤和结构感突出的外衣。经典的搭配是,黑色的外衣加深色的牛仔(如莎拉·杰西卡·帕克)或者亮白色的小礼(例如)配更淡的裤子。考虑下让亮色和亮色搭配,深色和深色搭配。 /201008/111617


  A monkey-like animal seen as an ancestor of monkeys, apes and humans was not as brainy(1) as expected, according to scientists who analyzed its nicely preserved 29-million-year-old skull.The finding indicated that primate(2) brain enlargement evolved later than once thought, the researchers said on Monday.They analyzed a remarkably well-preserved fossilized(3) skull of the little primate Aegyptopithecus(4) zeuxis, which lived in the trees and ate fruit and leaves about 29 million years ago in warm forests in what is now an Egyptian desert.A technique called microcomputerized tomography(5) scanning -- a computerized X-ray method also called micro-CT -- allowed them to determine the dimensions of the animal's brain."What was astonishing is how small this brain is," Duke University primatologist Elwyn Simons, who led the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, said in a telephone interview."You can also see it's a pretty darn primitive brain. It would be small for a monkey or an ape," Simons added. "So it's telling us that the speed of achievement of brain enlargement in primates was a little slower than perhaps we had thought."This skull of a small female was uncovered in a quarry(6) southwest of Cairo in 2004. It was better preserved than another skull of a larger male of the species found in the same area in 1966.Based on earlier finds, scientists had theorized the species had a relatively large brain. Instead, it had a brain that might have been even smaller than that of a modern lemur, a primate with primitive traits.Simons said that when this primate lived, Africa was an island, limiting the competition for survival. Simons said brain enlargement may have evolved in this lineage after Africa became connected to Asia, bringing in more animals including new and dangerous predators."Brain-volume enlargement is favored under conditions of competition because you need to be smarter," Simons said. 科学家对一个保存良好的2900万年前的头骨进行研究,发现这种类猴的猴子、猿和人类祖先并没有预想得那么聪明。周一,研究人员们说此发现显示灵长类大脑进化时间比原来认为的要晚。这个小巧的古埃及猿头骨化石保存十分完好。此种灵长类动物生活在2900万年前的温暖埃及丛林,以树为家,以果为食,但是现在这片丛林已经变成沙漠了。一项被称为微型电子计算机X线断层扫描的技术可以帮助测算动物大脑尺寸,它也可被称为微CT。杜克大学灵长类动物学家Elwyn Simons在电话采访中说:“我们很惊讶它的大脑竟然如此之小。” 由他负责的本次研究被刊登在美国国家科学院报中。Simons说:“它虽然是一个灵长类头骨,但是比猴子或者猿的都要小。也就是说灵长类动物大脑的飞速发展比我们原来推算的要慢一点。”这个小的女性头骨在2004年被发掘于开罗西南部一个采石场中。它的保存状况好于1966年在同一地点发现的另一个稍大的同类男性头骨。根据之前的研究,科学家们推断这种动物应该拥有相对大的大脑。但是它的大脑却比具有原始特点的现代狐猴的还小。Simons说这种动物生活的时候非洲还是一个岛屿,没有生存竞争。Simons认为他们的大脑发展发生在亚非大陆相连的时候,因为很多动物包括新的和危险的食肉动物都来到了这里。他说:“竞争促进脑容量的扩展,因为你如果不变得更聪明就得死。” /200805/38136
