What does the phrase "by default" mean? Does it relate to the meaning of default on a computer?

I know what default means as related to settings on a computer, but what other ways can this word be used? Thanks.

It means the same thing as it does with computers: if no other action is taken, the default action will occur or the default condition will, or will continue to, exist. If you are not male, by default you are female (the only other possible condition). If mom asks what you want for dinner and you do not take the action of telling her, by default you will have whatever she cooks. If you want to go to the movies with either Bill or John and Bill can't go, by default you will go with John. If the grass is dry and you do not water it, it will remain dry. A team cannot win a game it is obligated to play if it does not play the game, so it loses by default: by lack of the action of playing.

i liked your examples, but i liked the first answerer's definition of by default meaning something happens automatically w/o change or effort.

by default means automatically; something happens without change or effort. An example- Rams quarterbacks Marc Bulger and Kyle Boller are both injured, by default the third quarterback, Keith Null, must get the start.

When something happens automatically.

By Default is a term used in sports when a team doesn't show up. The other team wins, by default.

You defaulted on a loan payment...you didn't pay the loan

季節前面要不要加the?

He will go to Beijing to watch the Olympic Games in ___summer of 2008

 

這一句中是不是要加the?

有沒有什麼情況不用加?

最佳答案

這是特指2008年的夏天 要加the

 

一般泛泛上講 不加 如:The weather will become very hot in summer

 

泛指的時候不用冠詞,特指某一年或某個季節或者某季節裏的物的時候要用。如上的意思是“度過冬季”(泛指),“秋天裏的它”(特指)

他們都這般有Guts嗎?
高級助理研究員 黃豐鑑
關鍵字: guts 油價政策立場反覆 上吐(杜)下洩(謝)

 

        「Guts」日來風波不息,首先,英文之「guts」是「gut」的複數型,翻譯中文絕對只是勇氣,而腸子的英文是「gut」單數形,所以「guts」不能翻成腸子,就如同「good」與「goods」兩者中文意義完全不同一般。
 
        行政院副院長邱義仁以「Guts」(有膽識)稱贊他的院長長官張俊雄「撐住油價機制」的這個字,被馬英九拿 來嘲諷張俊雄,說他對油價政策立場反覆,好像他的「膽」被「手術移除」一般。未料張院長於電視鏡頭前語態扭捏地說不清講什麼後,才勉強洴出:「這是我的 Privacy(隱私),希望容許我來保留。」院長講話的口齒,給人的感覺好像從來沒有這般虛偽過。也難怪,貴為全國最高行政長官,好的政積一項也沒,卻 是對物價漲、油價漲、治安壞,袖手無策,更痛苦的還有僚屬閣員們上吐(杜)下洩(謝)不斷,「五元」「小車」凸槌不停。不然,一個人割除膽又有什麼見不得 人嗎?何必如此像小媳婦一般,哪像堂堂行政院長之尊呢?
 
        再說,世界上割除膽器官的大有人在,這些人還不是活得健健康康,快快樂樂的。更何況,張院長雖然以無膽之士還能位居高堂之上,那何需要對割除膽一事上鏡 頭,博社會同情?還是要更高職位?一大把年紀的老人還在鏡頭前如此膽怯怯,這麼難以啟齒,真是丟人現臉,有何意義?
 
        更可笑的是,謝長廷居然也敢來湊熱鬧:「割掉膽也不一定就沒有膽啊,不應該拿出身,身體來批評人家。」話固然沒錯,但是要看什麼人講的。前幾天,謝長廷諷刺國民黨總統參選人馬英九:人和馬不一樣,馬再厲害、跑再快,也是被人騎。謝竟然以馬英九的「馬」姓,來比喻馬英九就是動物的「馬」,終歸是被人騎的。把人當做動物,這種不厚道批評人家的民進黨總統候選人,還有什麼資格來批評人家?
 
        這個社會早已被民進黨搞得民窮財困,百姓痛苦萬分,是非顛倒,民進黨治國無策,大官們卻是整天口水滿天飛,喊Guts喊到爽。想到民進黨的無能就令人生氣,台灣人百姓再不覺醒的話,只有死路一條了!

Dell Adamo review

By posted April 13th 2009 2:13PM

From the beginning, Dell's Adamo line of laptops have been anything but status quo. Starting with the company's viral "leaks" on phony fashion sites, straight on to the weird launch / non-launch at CES, and culminating with a burst of PR boasting the systems' surprisingly low-powered internals and freakishly high price-point, it's been nothing if not noteworthy. Now we've finally had a chance to see how Dell's answer to the MacBook Air (and X301 for good measure) performs in the real world. The big question? Is this beauty worth the time and trouble... and that big outlay of green? Read on for an in-depth look at what the Adamo does -- and doesn't -- deliver on.

Update: Dell pinged to let us know that the covering on the lid and screen is actually glass -- we've updated the review to reflect (no pun intended) that info.

Dell Adamo ultrathin laptop rumors surface

By posted December 18th 2008 4:56PM

According to the New York Times, Dell may have a little surprise on the way. Based on some wild trademark searches, a tiny bit of digging on the "internet" using a "search engine," and the lack of eye contact from the company's VP in charge of consumer sales (Michael Tatelman), there's a MacBook Air rival beneath all this subterfuge. It seems that the brand name "Adamo" is registered to the computer-maker with a site to match, and somehow the fashion blog (!?) Uptownlife.net came up with this gem: "Rumor has it that Dell is coming out with a computer called Adamo that will rival the MacBook Air." How they came up with that is anyone's guess, but apparently the look on Tatelman's face when asked about it was enough to convince at least one journalist that this is a done deal. Us? Well we're going to wait and see, but we're happy to work with Commander Adamo as soon as we see him.

Jason圖片字典:apricot : 杏,杏子,黃色桃子,很像桃子的水果,沒有毛的桃子

 

Apricot

Also known botanically as Prunus armeniaca,or "Armenian plum", this well-known fruit is native to the Asian regions of Himalaya, China, Armenia and is currently grown in several regions with climates ranging from sub-tropical to temperate and mediterranean.

Apricot
A sliced apricot showing the "stone"

Apricot trees are very prolific: they can reach 12-15 feet in height and yield fruit for up to 20-25 years.

These trees grow with ovate leaves, about 5-10 cm in diameter and length, with a pointy tip.

Flowers have light pink petals, and only reach a size of about 3-4 cm. Apricot trees produce a fruit similar to peaches, with a yellow, pale color that becomes deep orange when ripe, and it often becomes red on the region most exposed to sunlight. Apricots also contain a single seed, surrounded by a hard, woody shell called "stone".

The inner seed can be eaten and has a taste very similar to almonds, but it contains small quantities of cyanide and should therefore be consumed with caution: it can lead to cyanide poisoning.

Nowadays, apricots are cultivated in several countries with different climates, with the most important being Turkey, Iran, Italy, Pakistan and Greece, but several other countries contribute heavily to apricot production.

In the USA, most apricots are produced in California (about 95% of total output), while in Australia apricots are confined to the southern regions.

Lacquer Boxes
Jason圖片字典:鋼琴烤漆,塗漆,漆器

Lacquer boxes

The original "Kiribako" (Pawlonia wood boxes) were used in the Edo period to store kimono, obi, stationery, or to present gifts at a wedding. As the cost of the wood grew over time, these lacquered paper versions were introduced.

Sturdy, shiny, and simply stunning in their own right, they make organizing - and gift-giving - beautiful.
