Mr. Smalls has always conducted himself with 秉持the utmost professionalism. His attention to detail and work ethic are above question. He has been a very effective manager of people who is well-liked and respected by his employees. At ACME, he had over 20 employees who reported directly to him. I never once received a complaint from any of them, and on the contrary, received several comments from staff leaving the company that they only hoped their new boss would be as kind and understanding as Mr. Smalls.


While I am sorry to see him leave us, he is leaving in order to return to the city of his birth and be closer to his family, and 因此I commend him. Mr. Smalls has much to offer及大貢獻 a freight / foreign / feign / company. He is experienced in both long and short-haul scheduling時間安排, air freight, and ocean freight. His understanding of the relevant paper work is vast, in some areas even more advanced than my own, and he has cultivated good friendships at customs and among truckers working throughout the industry. Such contacts would be an asset to your company as well as to Mr. Smalls himself.

 

' I encourage you to hire Mr. Smalls. I am confident that you will be most pleased with his performance. If I can provide further information about Mr. Smalls' qualifications, or if I can be of assistance in any other way, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (212) 745-XXXX.

Professor:

Ok, so we were talking about predators and the behavior of predators... And how some behavior of predators are learned and some are innate... and when we were looking at the behaviors of predators, we talked about how predators hunt... how they hunt prey... that is other animals... we have discussed how some of the predators' behavior like sneaking up on an animal might be learned and how other behavior like... chasing their prey might be instinctual. In fact, when an animal runs from a predator, it excites the predator and the predator will chase the animal basically on instinct.

Now, because many predators kill only when their prey is moving, an animal that pretends to be dead may succeed in convincing a predator to lose interest and move move along ... move along in search of more quote, unquote(used parenthetically to indicate the beginning and end of a quotation.), lively prey. And a lot of this can happen on instinct as well... And that's what I would like to talk about today the behavior of prey and how that behavior can be instinctual or learned as well. Some of this behavior even the innate behavior can be quite complex... and that's what I would like to focus on first, the complex innate behavior of prey. For instance, hognose snakes have a complex repertoire of anti-predator behaviors... one of these anti-predator behaviors is feigning death. These fairly large non-venomous, to slightly venomous, snakes live in sandy areas of the eastern United States. When a hognose snake is first disturbed, it opts to ' bluff the predator firstthat is, it flattens and expands the first... front third of its body and head, forming a hood, causing it to look larger. It then curls into an exaggerated s-shaped coil and hisses, occasion...occasionally making false strikes at its tormentor. All that acting usually convinces the predator that the snake is venomous and therefore dangerous. But that does not always work. If the predator decides to investigate further... and further provokes the hognose snake, it drops the bluff and begins to twist


its body violently. Then it rolls onto its back with its mouth open and tongue hanging loosely out. This bluff.is designed to trick the p... predator into thinking the snake is 'dead. As I said, most predators will pass on dead prey. If the predator loses interest in, uh, the "corpse" and moves away, the snake slowly rights itself and crawls off. This complete repertoire of anti-predator mechanisms (automatic self-protective behavior) occurs in even young hognose snakes.

 

Student:

Excuse me, Professor Dundy, is that how we know the behavior is innate because we can observe it at a young age?

 

Professor:

In a nutshell, the answer is yes. But this is an important point, so I think I'll expand "expand upon it for a while. While most innate behavior is simple, simple when compared to learned behavior, the innate behavior we are talking about it here is very complex. We believe it is innate because we can see it, even in its mo... most complex forms in very young hognose snakes. Well, researchers have shown that newborn snakes are capable of making very subtle assessments... subtle calculations... of the degree of threat posed by a particular predator. Two experiments were conducted in which the recovery from death-feigning... that is the time it took snakes to recover from their fake death and crawl away was measured... so this was measured in newly hatched snakes under various conditions. In one experiment the recovery of snakes was monitored in the presence or absence of a stup... a stuffed screech owl mounted on a tripod one meter from the overturned snake. In another experiment, when the snake recovered in the presence of a human staring at the snake from a distance of one meter, in the presence of the same person in the same location but with eyes averted, and in a control condition in which no human was visible. In the first two instances, both the presence of the owl and, uh, the direct human gaze resulted in longer recovery times relative to the respective control conditions. On the other hand, when the human eyes were averted, the recovery time was immediate. Thus, young snakes are capable of using rather subtle p... cues to make adjustments in their anti-predator behavior. And all this seems to be instinctual. That is, hognose snakes do not have to learn this from their parents.

An ROC military delegation recently flew to the US to discuss arms procurement and the future of Taiwan-US military discussions with the US military. The ROC Ministry of National Defense is reluctant to accept the proposed replacement of annual ministerial-level arms talk between the two countries with a case-by-case discussion with the American Institute in Taiwan.

 

The ROC delegation will also push for visits from higher lever US military officers. The US Department of Defense currently sends only medium-ranked officials to Taiwan on a regular basis. A defense official in charge of regional affairs, for instance, is only a major in rank but is one of the most important US military officials routinely flying to Taiwan. The ministry hopes that higher-ranking officials, preferably generals from the Pentagon or other branches of the US military, will be visiting Taiwan to discuss military matters.

 

This looks unlikely, however. All this comes at a time 正值when relations between Taiwan and the United States are increasingly being conditioned by both parties' desire to improve relations with China. Although the United States remains by far Taiwan's most important strategic ally, the strategic value of Taiwan to the United States now looks, at best, limited.

 

Taiwan, on the other hand, is also keen to improve trade and diplomatic relations with China, but not at the cost of its independence. China makes no secret of its desire to bring Taiwan back under its control, whether direct or indirect (as is the case with Hong Kong), and thus Taiwan cannot do without its guarantee of US protection. Such protection, however, is an obstacle to the improvement of relations with China, who views American military presence in the region as a threat to its own security.

 

Thus, for the time being, the three countries remain locked in a farcical but potentially dangerous "trilemma". The United States must fulfill its historical obligations to Taiwan but must try to do so in as low-key a way as possible, so as not to arouse Chinese anger and suspicion. Taiwan must try to edge靠攏 closer to China economically and diplomatically without renouncing US military support in case of Chinese aggression. The US-Taiwan military relationship must therefore continue, even though both sides would prefer a world in which it were no longer necessary.


  1. What is the main topic of this article?

 

  1. American military capabilities.
  2. Taiwan's military conflicts with China.
  3. Military relations between the United States and Taiwan.
  4. The quality of arms used by Taiwan's military.
  5. According to the article, what is Taiwan's Minister of National Defense concerned about? t

 

  1. A change in the way the two countries meet to discuss military issues.
  2. America's withdrawal of an offer to sell arms to Taiwan.
  3. America's willingness to begin discussions with mainland China.
  4. America's weakening military structure.
  5. What rank of American military officer does the ROC prefer to hold talks with?

 

  1. Major
  2. Captain
  3. General
  4. Private
  5. Why does the author think it is unlikely that the Americans will agree to send higher-ranking officers to Taiwan?

 

  1. Because there is already a shortage of high-ranking American officers.
  2. Because America doesn't care about its military relationship with Taiwan.
  3. Because they are afraid of a negative Chinese reaction.
  4. All of the above.


40. Which of the following best describes the author's view of the future of the US-Taiwan military alliance?

  1. The alliance will continue, even though both sides secretly wish it were not necessary.
  2. The alliance will continue, even though Taiwan secretly wishes it were not necessary.
  3. The alliance will continue, even though the United States secretly wishes it were not necessary.
  4. The alliance will soon end.

Narrator:

Listen to part of a conversation in a class on animal behavior. Professor:

All right, so we've... we left off with a discussion of altruism. Who can remember what altruism is?

 

Student:

Um, it's.. .uh, it's when you have an animal that acts to benefit another animal or to the detriment of itself.

 

Professor:

Yes. Perfect. Now, why would an animal ever do something like that? Well, I'd like to quote from Haldane. In the early 1930s, J.B.S. Haldane the late, great geneticists said that he would lay down his own life to save two of his brothers, or eight of his cousins. That might sound crazy to some of you, but, evolutionarily speaking, Haldane's statement makes perfect sense. You see, for each allele, tsk, Haldane received from his parents, his brother each... his brothers each had a 50% chance of receiving the same allele. Consequently, it's, uh, statistically expected that two of his brothers would

pass on as many of Haldane's particular combination of alleles to the next generation as Haldane himself would, if not more. By the same token, tnk, Haldane and a first cousin (Someone's first cousin is the same as their cousin. Compare second cousin.) would share an eighth of their alleles. You see, their parents, which are siblings, would each share half their

 

 

allele


Any one of two or more alternative forms of a gene that may occur alternatively at a given site on a chromosome.

Alleles may occur in pairs, or there may be multiple alleles affecting the expression of a particular trait. If paired alleles are the same, the organism is said to be homozygous for that trait; if they are different, the organism is heterozygous. A dominant allele will override the traits of a recessive allele in a heterozygous pairing (see dominance and recessiveness). In some traits, alleles may be codominant (i.e., neither acts as dominant or recessive). An individual cannot possess more than two alleles for a given trait. All genetic traits are the result of the interactions of alleles.


alleles, and each of their children would receive half of these, of which half on the average would be in common: one-half times, one-half times, one-half equals... anyone?

今天学会一个新名词 - Troll

来自pythoncn的maillist,呵呵,挺有意思
-------------
像Chris Qie <longroad1999@gmail.com>这样的在公共论坛用侮辱性言语挑起骂战并从中获取某种不知名快感的人,在Usenet文化中有一个名称:

  • Troll

  • Troll作动词是钓鱼的意思,指那些人发表某种言论后等待别人的攻击性回复,从而获得快感。Troll还有一个意思是斯堪的纳维亚神话中一种长相丑陋、爱恶作 剧、令人讨厌的巨人,和那些找骂的人有相似之处,因此也被引申过来形容那些 人,做名词使用。回troll的贴则被称为feed the trolls,即给trolls喂食。
  • Trolls有很多种,像Chris Qie只是其中一种,即使用种族歧视性语言激怒别人,好让别人回帖骂他。comp.lang.python上著名的troll: Xah Lee则是长年在各个 script语言讨论组上交叉张贴无关内容或用错误百出的话语对某种语言或者文化进 行攻击。但无论那种troll,他们的目的都是一样的:想通过怪诞的举动引起别人 的注意。这是一种病态心理,是一种未成熟,类似小孩“人来疯”似的举动。
  • Trolls的存在对公共空间是破坏性的。它们的post会引起很多人回帖,甚至会有情绪激动者采用谩骂的方式回敬,这些人被称为trollhunter。这些行为正中trolls 的下怀,使他们获得被骂的快乐,从而更加积极的trolling。而且即使 trollhunter的动机是好的,也会给论坛带来不好影响,使其他用户接收到大量无 关信息和攻击性信息,成为受害者。公共空间的和谐性被破坏。
  • Trolls最愿意看到别人回他的贴,无论是正儿八经指出他的错误还是义愤填膺的对他谩骂。对一个troll来说,最能让他感到沮丧的则是没有人理他。而我们,正是 应该让他们沮丧,失去trolling的动力。
  • 对待trolls的方法,一方面要靠大家自觉,克制自己回帖的冲动,不给他们喂食。

另一方面,在邮件列表这种有管理员的公共空间,可以向管理员提出封禁trolls的 提案。

Questions 26-30

 

When you enter a Chinese Opera theater in Taipei, the first thing you will notice is a brilliant, lavishly embroidered hanging. Performers will then stride on stage to the sound of strings and woodwinds, or the clanging of gongs and drums.

 

First may be a handsome, sturdy young man in warrior garb, somersaulting across the stage and displaying his martial skills. Next may follow a young woman veiled by strings of pearls and dressed in silk brocade, singing in a gentle, feminine voice and performing a 'dance. Then there is the famous Monkey King Sun Wu-k'ung, of the opera Journey to the West, with his twitching, scratching, and mischievous simian antics. These characters are all representative of China's traditional National Opera, or Peking Opera.

 

Every week, Taiwan's three television stations air prerecorded or live Peking Opera performances, bringing high quality Chinese Opera into everybody's living room. One program teaches children to appreciate this traditional art through a lively presentation of the history, symbolism, and performance of Peking Opera. Most radio stations offer programs that feature the best of Peking Opera through records of outstanding past performances as well as live broadcasts. These efforts go a long way to keeping the art vital and popular.


So too has Chen Kaige's 2009 film Forever Enthralled / captivated, based on the life of famous Chinese opera performer Mei Lanfang. The main theme of the film, as the English title suggests, is the perennial power and relevance相關 of Beijing Opera as an art form. The film culminates with the first performance of Beijing Opera in New York in 1929; despite its totally foreign flavour, the performance is warmly received by the New York audience.

 

The film is also, however, a poignant reminder of the vulnerability of Beijing Opera in a crowded cultural marketplace. Indeed, the film reminds us, Beijing Opera has always fought for wider recognition and respect, and the rapid modernization of Taiwan and China in recent decades has created a preference, especially among the young, for the modern over the ancient, and for instant over delayed gratification. The long, slow beauty of Beijing Opera seems at odds with the pace and bustle of modern life. Yet perhaps, more optimistically, Beijing Opera as an art form has always been behind the times, an echo of an idealized past.

26.  What is this passage mainly about?

 

  1. Chinese Opera in Taiwan.
  2. The Actors in Peking

27.  Which character is NOT mentioned as representative of traditional Chinese opera?

 

  1. The Monkey King
  2. A fortune


28.According to the article, what are the key elements of traditional Chinese opera?

alright 和 all right有什麼區別嗎?


其實一樣的,沒區別
alright常用與口頭表達,表示尚可、還行、就這樣吧的意思
all right是指正確的、方便的、可行的
ok用於口頭表達,和alright差不多,好的、可以、行
