  • 第一次约会最好不要一起吃饭 -- 18:31: 来源:中国日报 Restaurants are the go-to so many social and professional occasions. Whether you're in a professional meet-up, brunch with friends, or an overdue date night with your longtime partner, the convo-and-cuisine combo is, in general, the perfect fallback option.很多时候,社交和工作可能要在餐馆进行无论是工作洽谈、与朋友吃早午餐,还是与人生伴侣共赴一场早就定好的约会,一边讨论问题一边进餐都是非常完美的备选方案But as a first date? No thanks, I'd rather shove bamboo under my fingernails while listening to Yoko Ono songs on repeat.但第一次约会呢?还是算了吧,我宁可边循环播放小野洋子的歌,边往指甲里扎竹片Just because it's been a courtship staple since ever doesn't mean it's a good idea, any more than ordering garlic b and onion soup just bee going in the first kiss is a good idea. Not convinced? Let's break it down.仅仅因为共进晚餐是求爱的永恒主题,并不意味着这是个好方法,这和点了蒜蓉面包和洋葱汤后再献初吻是一样的性质你不信吗?看我慢慢给你分析You've got spinach in your teeth你牙缝里有菠菜Let me be blunt here: no one looks attractive while they're eating. Not you, not your date, not even Hollywood celebrities. (Ever seen a tabloid photo of a famous person wolfing down a double-stacked hamburger? I rest my case.)我就直白一点说吧:没人吃相好看你不好看,你的约会对象不好看,甚至好莱坞明星也不好看(你在小报上见过明星狼吞虎咽吃双层汉堡的照片吗?我不用再多说了吧)Sure, the way he slurps his spaghetti like a child or the way she always takes minutes to order might become an endearing quirk later on. But when it comes to first impressions, gnawing on BBQ ribs is far from alluring. Salad isn't any safer. whatever reason, restaurants love to serve giant-sized leaves of lettuce in their salads that are all but impossible to fit into a human-sized mouth without unhinging your jaw like a snake. You could try taking a knife to your edible jungle, but then you're likely to get that look that says, ;Are you crazy? Why are you using a steak knife on your salad?;当然了,他吃意大利面时吧唧嘴的样子像个孩子,她点菜总要花上分钟的时间;;这些怪癖也许恰恰促成了你们后来的爱情但是想要留下良好的第一印象,大口嚼着烤肋排可一点都不吸引人沙拉也安全不到哪儿去不知道为什么,餐馆提供的沙拉里面的生菜叶总是很大,你不像蛇一样把嘴张到最大根本没法把它塞进嘴里你也可以拿把刀切一下这些菜叶,但那样的话别人也许就会投来异样的眼光,好像在说:;你疯了吗?怎么用切牛排的刀来切沙拉?;By the way, if you do somehow find yourself at the local eatery during your first romantic rendezvous, bring a toothbrush. Murphy's law of dating says that if you can get a huge glob of food stuck in your front teeth while trying to woo your potential future SO, you will.顺便提醒一下,如果你确实发现自己不小心把第一次浪漫约会设在了当地一家餐厅,那就带把牙刷吧墨菲的约会定律说,如果你有可能在追求潜在伴侣的时候门牙上粘了一团食物,那么,这样的事就会发生Two words: gastrointestinal distress四个字:肠胃不适Even if you manage to choose a restaurant with an appealing and reasonable prices -- both of those are BIG ifs! -- you're still running a dangerous risk by trusting your stomach to do the right thing. Our gastrointestinal systems work in mysterious ways, and there's no telling if or when two seemingly innocuous foods might have an unexpected reaction that will lead to embarrassing results.如果你选到了一家菜品美味、价格合理的餐厅(大写的;如果;),即使你觉得你的肠胃到时候可以正常运转,那么你还是冒了很大的风险我们的肠胃系统运作方式非常神秘,不会提前告诉你:是否以及何时,两种看上去相安无事的食物会发生意想不到的反应,并导致非常尴尬的结果There are a million different factors working simultaneously to determine if and when your food will disagree with you. Even ordering an old favorite doesn't guarantee that it wonrsquo;t send you racing to the bathroom halfway through your meal, or ce you to make the impossible choice between whether to let one rip (and hope your date doesnrsquo;t hear) or bravely try to hold it in.你的食物什么时候会在体内作怪是百万个因素共同作用的结果即使点你一直喜欢的菜也不能保你在吃到一半时不会冲向卫生间,或者你犹豫一番,到底是排下气呢(还要祈祷你的约会对象不会听到),还是勇敢地忍住;;这种选择真是两难啊And if you did order that garlic b and onion soup? Well, I just hope you carry an emergency supply of breath-freshening mints in your pocket at all times. Otherwise, you're screwed.如果你确实点了蒜蓉面包和洋葱汤呢?这样的话,我希望你随时随地携带救急用的口气清新薄荷糖否则的话,你就完了It's like a job interview, only worse就像面试一样,只是比面试更糟Even when Irsquo;m out with a familiar face, I prefer to sit next to the person, rather than across from them. It's cozier, more intimate, and less confrontational. Bonus: it puts you in prime position to snag a bite off their plate bee they can fight back.即使我是和熟人一起出去吃饭的,我也更喜欢坐在那人旁边,而不是与他面对面这样更舒适,也更亲密,也不显得太对立给你点儿额外福利:这个位置使你能在他们还没反应过来的时候,从他们的盘子里抢一口吃的Sitting across from someone in a one-on-one setting is far too reminiscent of an interview, especially given all the questions you'll be asking each other. Unless, of course, you're stuck in perpetual awkward silence, which is far, far worse. In fact, a lot of dating advice columns have pointed out the similarities between a first date and a job interview: in both cases, you're dressing up and trying to put your best foot ward in the hopes of securing a callback.和某人面对面坐着简直太像面试了,特别是你们还要问对方很多问题当然,除非你们处在长时间尴尬的沉默中才能不像面试,但那样会比糟糕更糟事实上,很多约会建议专栏都说过第一次约会和面试的相似之处:在这两个情境中,你都会打扮得光鲜亮丽,试图给人留下个好印象,期待着能有下次Realizing the connection, of course, only makes it seem that much more nerve-wracking. At least at the end of a job interview, you get to go home knowing yoursquo;ll never have to see that person again unless they actually liked you. Rarely will you get so lucky in the world of romance.意识到这些联系,当然只会让约会看起来更令人精神紧张至少,在面试后,你在回家的路上就知道,你永远不会再见到他了,除非那个人确实喜欢你而你在情场中很少能有这么好的运气Nerves, of course, are part and parcel of a first date. So why would you want to put yourself in a situation that'll just ramp up the anxiety even more?当然,第一次约会的时候紧张不可避免 那么为什么你还要把自己置于紧张的情境中,加剧自己的焦虑呢?Talk about being under pressure...既然说到了压力;;Let's say, argument's sake, you actually like sitting across from people. Fine. But what about the comparison factor? First date dinners are such a clicheacute;, it's nearly impossible to avoid thinking back to all the other times you took a guy or girl out to eat the first time. Not to mention the quintillion dinner-date scenes Hollywood has managed to squeeze into every rom-com ever.为了全方位论我的观点,我们就打个比方,假设你确实喜欢和人面对面坐着那好但比较起来该怎么办呢?第一次约会共进晚餐总是这么的老套,会让你不可避免地回想起你以前带男孩或女孩第一次出去吃饭的时光更不要说好莱坞拍了无数个爱情电影,每个里面都有共进晚餐的约会场景了The thing is, the compare-and-contrast game is unwinnable. One of two things will inevitably happen: your brain will kindly dredge up the worst faux-pas you've ever committed and give you debilitating social anxiety, or yoursquo;ll think of Cameron Diaz and Jude Law chatting in a fancy French bistro and realize this date doesn't even come close. Inevitably, you'll find yourself subconsciously struggling to either avoid the mistakes of the past or to measure up to impossible standards. Neither of these, of course, will accomplish anything besides adding extra pressure to an aly stressful event.问题是,在这种比较加对比的游戏中你是不会获胜的你脑海中会不由自主地浮现出最失态的那次经历,加剧你的社交恐惧;或者你会想起卡梅隆;迪亚兹和裘德;洛在一家有情调的法国酒吧聊天的场景,然后意识到自己的这次约会可远远比不上人家你会不可避免地发现自己在潜意识中挣扎,要么试图避免过去的错误,要么以不可能的标准要求自己而这两种情况,除了给已经够紧张的事增加额外压力,别的什么都实现不了Break the mold and opt a better, more casual alternative. Consider mini golf, or a trip to the museum, or attending a local festival -- literally anything more creative and enjoyable than the nightmare of the first date dinner. The future yin to your yang will thank you it.打破常规,选择一个更好更轻松的方式吧考虑一下去打迷你高尔夫、参观物馆,或者参加当地的节日庆祝活动,这些都比像噩梦一般的晚餐更新鲜、更愉快你未来的另一半也会感谢你的Vocabularyspaghetti:意大利式细面条slurp:出声地吃或喝

  • 猫之争:从进化角度看猫科比犬科更好 -- :38: 来源: 猫之争:从进化角度看猫科比犬科更好Cats vs dogs: Scientists confirm that felines are better... from an evolutionary perspectiveIt"s the debate that has long divided animal lovers. Now scientists have confirmed that cats really are better than dogs – at least from an evolutionary perspective.一直以来,“猫和哪个更好”这一问题将动物爱好者划分为两大阵营现在科学家已经实猫确实比更好——至少从进化的角度来看是这样A groundbreaking study of ,000 ancient fossils reveals that felids – the cat family – have historically been much better at surviving than the "canid" dog clan, and often at the latter’s expense.一项对00个古代化石进行的开拓性研究揭示了从历史上看,猫科动物家族的生存能力远远强于犬科动物家族,而且猫科动物的生存是以犬科动物的损耗为代价的The research finds that cats have played a significant role in making 0 dog species extinct, outcompeting them scarce food supplies because they are generally more effective hunters. But researchers found no evidence that dogs have wiped out a single cat species.这项研究发现,猫科动物在0个犬科物种的灭绝过程中发挥了重要作用由于猫科动物通常是更有效率的捕猎者,在夺取供应不足的食物的竞争中猫科动物胜过了犬科动物但是研究人员没有发现任何犬类动物消灭掉一个猫科物种的据The dog family – which includes the wolves from which today’s domesticated dogs are descended – originated inNorth Americaabout 0 million years ago and reached a maximum diversity around million years later, when there were more than 30 species on the continent. At that point, the cat family arrived fromAsia.犬科家族——包括现在的驯养的祖先狼——起源于约000万年前的北美洲,在大约00万年后达到了物种多样性的巅峰,当时在北美洲有超过30个犬类物种与此同时,猫科动物也从亚洲来到此地"The arrival of cats to North America had a deadly impact on the diversity of the dog family. We usually expect changes in climate to play the overwhelming role in the evolution of species. Instead, competition among different carnivore species proved to be even more important the dogs," said the report’s lead author, Dr Daniele Silvestro, of theUniversityofLausanneinSwitzerland.这项研究报告的第一作者、瑞士洛桑大学(University of Lausanne)的达妮埃尔·西尔韦斯特罗(Dr. Daniele Silvestro)士表示:“猫科动物的到来给犬科动物的物种多样性造成致命打击我们通常预计气候变化会在物种进化过程中发挥最重要的作用但对于犬科动物来说,不同食肉动物物种间的竞争被明是更重要的”The influx of cats prompted a period of dramatic decline among the dog clan. This has leftNorth Americawith just nine species of wild dog today, comprising different variations of wolves and foxes, according to the fossil analysis published in the journal PNAS.猫科动物的涌入导致犬科动物数量在一段时间内大幅下降依据这项发表在美国国家科学院院刊(PNAS)上的化石分析,这造成了如今北美洲仅存九个犬类物种,包括狼和狐狸的不同变种Dr Silvestro says it is unclear exactly why, when times were tough, the cats were able to see off dogs so comprehensively. But he believed it could be something to do with the retractable claws that ancient cats have passed down to their domesticated descendants, but which dogs don’t have.西尔韦斯特罗士称,目前还不是十分清楚在当时的艰难岁月,猫科动物为什么能将犬科动物“驱逐”得那么彻底但是他认为这可能跟古代猫科动物伸缩自如的爪子有关,这是犬科动物所不具有的古代猫科动物还将这种爪子遗传给了自己的后裔家猫Millions of years ago, some dog species, such as wolves, were effective killing machines, chasing down their prey at high speed and devouring it. All surviving dog species fall into this "runner" camp.数百万年前,某些犬科物种(比如说狼)是有效的杀戮机器,能以高速追捕猎物并吞食掉所有幸存的犬科动物都属于“奔跑系猎手”阵营But other dog species ambushed their prey in a manner similar to the cat family. However, these dogs weren’t as good as the cats at this technique – and all the canid species who used it are now extinct.不过也有其他犬科动物伏击猎物的方式与猫科动物相似然而,这些犬类动物并不像猫科动物那样擅长这项技能——所有曾使用这项技能的犬科动物现在都已经灭绝了Dr Silvestro explained: “The cats have retractable claws which they only pull out when they catch their prey. This means they don’t wear them out and they can keep them sharp. But the dogs can't do this, so they are at a disadvantage to the cats in an ambush situation.”西尔韦斯特罗士解释称:“猫科动物只有在抓到猎物时才会亮出它们可伸缩的爪子,这意味着它们不会磨损并能够时刻保持锋利,但是犬科动物不能做到这一点,同猫科动物相比,它们在伏击方面处于劣势”The evolutionary success of carnivorous animals is strongly linked to their ability to obtain food, meaning that there can be significant competition prey when there is insufficient supply the population.食肉动物的进化成功在很大程度上与它们获取食物的能力有关,这也意味着当食肉动物的食物供应不足时,猎物的争夺将十分激烈"Felids must have been more efficient predators than most of the extinct species in the dog family," the report concluded.该报告总结称:“猫科动物与那些灭绝了的犬科动物相比一定是更有效的捕食者”Vocabularyfelid:猫科动物canid:犬科动物clan:家族carnivore:食肉动物influx:(人或物的)大量涌入retractable:可缩回的,伸缩自如的prey:猎物ambush:伏击predator:捕食者英文来源:独立报译者:高婉璐BISTU
