What I feel today

I saw a crowd,I like their bulging.I saw someone everytime I go out who's living a part of my dream life.I saw a couple,one of them was jumping joyfully and looked stunning by watching from back.I saw too goddesses,and a plain girl was standing close to us,I couldn't help judging them again.I didn't feel natural and comfortable and behave chivalric.

越长大越孤单

越长大越艰难。为什么要做怎么多自己不喜欢做的事情?为什么一定要有兴趣爱好?为什么要为了生存扭曲自己畸形的活着?为什么有那么多人不喜欢我们?为什么有那么多偏见和恶意?为什么要不幸福地为着遥遥无期的幸福而奋斗?Why?Why?why?You know I don't need answers.Just ask for my confusion and desperation.

What is love? Five theories on the greatest emotion of all

"What is love" was the most searched phrase on Google in 2012, according to the company. In an attempt to get to the bottom of the question once and for all, the Guardian has gathered writers from the fields of science, psychotherapy, literature, religion and philosophy to give their definition of the much-pondered word.

Jim Al-Khalili

Biologically, love is a powerful neurological condition like hunger or thirst, only more permanent. We talk about love being blind or unconditional, in the sense that we have no control over it. But then, that is not so surprising since love is basically chemistry. While lust is a temporary passionate sexual desire involving the increased release of chemicals such as testosterone and oestrogen, in true love, or attachment and bonding, the brain can release a whole set of chemicals: pheromones, dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin and vasopressin. However, from an evolutionary perspective, love can be viewed as a survival tool – a mechanism we have evolved to promote long-term relationships, mutual defence and parental support of children and to promote feelings of safety and security.

• Jim Al-Khalili is a theoretical physicist and science writer

Philippa Perry

Unlike us, the ancients did not lump all the various emotions that we label "love" under the one word. They had several variations, including:

Philia which they saw as a deep but usually non-sexual intimacy between close friends and family members or as a deep bond forged by soldiers as they fought alongside each other in battle. Ludus describes a more playful affection found in fooling around or flirting. Pragma is the mature love that develops over a long period of time between long-term couples and involves actively practising goodwill, commitment, compromise and understanding. Agape is a more generalised love, it's not about exclusivity but about love for all of humanity. Philautia is self love, which isn't as selfish as it sounds. As Aristotle discovered and as any psychotherapist will tell you, in order to care for others you need to be able to care about yourself. Last, and probably least even though it causes the most trouble, eros is about sexual passion and desire. Unless it morphs into philia and/or pragma, eros will burn itself out.

Love is all of the above. But is it possibly unrealistic to expect to experience all six types with only one person. This is why family and community are important.

Julian Baggini

The answer remains elusive in part because love is not one thing. Love for parents, partners, children, country, neighbour, God and so on all have different qualities. Each has its variants – blind, one-sided, tragic, steadfast, fickle, reciprocated, misguided, unconditional. At its best, however, all love is a kind a passionate commitment that we nurture and develop, even though it usually arrives in our lives unbidden. That's why it is more than just a powerful feeling. Without the commitment, it is mere infatuation. Without the passion, it is mere dedication. Without nurturing, even the best can wither and die.

• Julian Baggini is a philosopher and writer

Jojo Moyes

What love is depends on where you are in relation to it. Secure in it, it can feel as mundane and necessary as air – you exist within it, almost unnoticing. Deprived of it, it can feel like an obsession; all consuming, a physical pain. Love is the driver for all great stories: not just romantic love, but the love of parent for child, for family, for country. It is the point before consummation of it that fascinates: what separates you from love, the obstacles that stand in its way. It is usually at those points that love is everything.

• Jojo Moyes is a two-time winner of the Romantic Novel of the Year award

Catherine Wybourne

Love is more easily experienced than defined. As a theological virtue, by which we love God above all things and our neighbours as ourselves for his sake, it seems remote until we encounter it enfleshed, so to say, in the life of another – in acts of kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice. Love's the one thing that can never hurt anyone, although it may cost dearly. The paradox of love is that it is supremely free yet attaches us with bonds stronger than death. It cannot be bought or sold; there is nothing it cannot face; love is life's greatest blessing.


Men and Women See Things Differently Literally

Twenty years ago, John Gray published a popular book titled Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Gray posited that most common relationship problems between men and women are a result of fundamental differences between the genders.

New research from the University of Bristol finds that the difference in gender viewpoints may begin with a physiological difference in the way men and women look at objects.

In the study, researchers examined where men and women looked while viewing still images from films and pieces of art. They found that while women made fewer eye movements than men, those they did make were longer and to more varied locations.

These differences were largest when viewing images of people. With photos of heterosexual couples, both men and women preferred looking at the female figure rather than the male one. However, this preference was even stronger for women.

While men were only interested in the faces of the two figures, women’s eyes were also drawn to the rest of the bodies — in particular that of the female figure.

According to Felix Mercer Moss, the study leader: “The study represents the most compelling evidence yet that, despite occupying the same world, the viewpoints of men and women can, at times, be very different.

“Our findings have important implications for both past and future eye movement research together with future technological applications.”

Eye movements are a tool used to collect visual information, which then colors an individual’s perception of the world. Equally, when individuals have different interpretations of the world, this in turn affects the information they seek and, consequently, the places they look.

The researchers suggest that men and women look at different things because they interpret the world differently. The pictures preferred by women were the same pictures that produced the most distinct “looking patterns.” Similarly, the pictures with the largest scope for a difference in interpretation — those with people — also produced the largest differences between where men and women looked.

One perceptual sex difference in particular — women’s increased sensitivity to threat — may explain a further finding. People’s eyes are drawn to the most informative regions of an image while also being repelled from areas that carry possible threat or danger, for example the sun.

Faces are a paradoxical example of a region that is both highly informative and potentially threatening, particularly if eye contact is made.

While men made direct eye contact with faces in the pictures; especially when primed to look for threat, women averted their gaze downward slightly towards the nose and mouth of these faces.

The researchers believe this may be due to women being more sensitive to the negative consequences of making direct eye contact and will, therefore, shift their gaze downward, towards the centre of the face.

The research is published in the open access journal PLoS ONE.

Albert Brooks on Twitter: "We Will Lose the War to China Because of Twitter"(repin)

“Twitter is the Devil’s playground, ” says Albert Brooks (384, 000 followers and counting). “I don’t know if I’m addicted. It’s a horrible waste of time for the writer of it, the reader of it. We will lose the war to China because of Twitter.”

Brooks tells Vanity Fair Comedy Issue guest editor Judd Apatow (who directed him in his new movie, This Is 40) that the subjects of dying and death are constantly on his mind. “I mean, this getting-old stuff is something, ” Brooks says. “I think I envy my dog, because my dog is 16 and she’s limping and she’s still living, but she doesn’t look at me like she knows. She’s not thinking what I’m thinking. It’s a cruel trick, that we all know the ending.”

Brooks recalls hanging out with John Lennon in Los Angeles during the period when the ex-Beatle was separated from Yoko Ono. Brooks, who grew up surrounded by show-business people in Beverly Hills, tells Apatow that Lennon was the only celebrity who blew his mind. “I’m not a person that was ever on. I was funny. I knew when to stop. I wasn’t that manic on, and I was on with him, and I didn’t know how to get out of it. I didn’t know what to do, ” Brooks recalls of their first meeting. “And he said—that still remains the greatest thing to me—he leaned over and said, ‘I’ve known you for a thousand years.’ And I just never felt bad again. That was a cool thing to say.”

Brooks calls Lennon “a frustrated comedian.” “All these guys, comedy to them was the holy grail, ” he says of the rockers he hung out with in the 70s. “It was interesting to know what they think of comedy. They love comedy so much. It’s a language they don’t speak as eloquently. As much as you listen to the Beatles and say, ‘How do you write that song?’ they’re going, ‘How did you say that? Where did that come from?’ And John was always the funniest Beatle. He had a sense of humor and he respected it so much.”

“I had a very wise person tell me that he thinks marriage, when you’re younger, you keep thinking you can fix things, ” says Brooks, who got married in his 40s. “That’s what people do. And you can’t really fix anything. It shouldn’t be a massive difficult thing every day. Life’s difficult enough.” Apatow mentions that This Is 40 is about the disaster of trying to make things better. “You can fix little teeny things, ” Brooks tells him. “If a person likes to eat their peas off a plate, and you like to eat them in a bowl, you might win at that. But that’s about it.”

On the subject of religion, Brooks tells Apatow: “It’s interesting when you’re part of a group—the Jews, to be exact—that the world has had such problems with. It has really nothing to do with religion. That’s why, if my kids didn’t want to go to temple, I used to say, ‘Let me explain something to you: If Hitler came back, he’s not going to ask if you went to temple. You’re already on the train. So you might as well know who you are and why they’re going to take you.’”

Brooks says the comedian who made the biggest impression on him when he was starting out was Jack Benny. “Because of his minimalism. And the way he got laughs. He was at the center of a storm, he let his players do the work, and just by being there made it funny. That was mind-boggling to me, ” Brooks says. He tells Apatow that early on in his career he performed on The Tonight Show one night when Benny was on. “There was always that last two minutes where Johnny was asking people, ‘Thank you for coming—what do you have coming up?’ And during the last commercial Jack Benny leaned over to Johnny Carson and said, ‘When we get back, ask me where I’m going to be, will you?’ So they came back. Johnny said, ‘I want to thank Albert. Jack, where are you going to be performing?’ And Jack Benny said, ‘Never mind about me—this is the funniest kid I’ve ever seen!’”

“And it was this profound thing, ” Brooks continues. “Like, Oh, that’s how you lead your life. Be generous and you can be the best person who ever lived.”


America's Smartest People(repin)

Find out which U.S. city has the most intelligent people—and the least.

What U.S. city has the most intelligent citizens? According to Travel + Leisure’s 2009 America’s Favorite Cities Survey, the answer is simple: Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Now in its fifth year, the survey—which was open to the online voting public this past summer—covers 30 U.S. cities and was expanded this year to include even more urban areas, such as Cleveland, Providence, and St. Louis. Its“People” category consistently ranks as the most talked about, with voters weighing in on such topics as what U.S. city has the most attractive people (Miami) or the least (Philadelphia). Not surprisingly, the question of which city is home to the country’s smartest people has also sparked discussion.

Some may credit the weather—for keeping people indoors with their noses in books—for the high IQs of Twin Cities residents, but the heady city is full of clues: top-ranked Macalester and seven other colleges; the Utne Reader and beloved independent Common Good Books; Minnesota Public Radio and the smart radio stylings of Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion; the revered Guthrie Theater; and a local culture that prides itself on being in the know—and knowing it all.

“The enormity of artistic and cultural opportunity paired with outdoor activity make the Minnie-apple a standout city, ” says Annie W. Mathisen, a 35-year-old attorney who was born in Minneapolis-St. Paul and then returned as an adult because of the area’s high quality of life. “We can boast having inventive minds, from Lucent to Prince. I think Minneapolis fosters an environment where intelligence is valued and constantly fed—no matter what your mind is hungry for, ” she says.

But there are other intellectual hotbeds, too. The freethinking bastion of San Francisco—home to countless high-tech companies and Internet entrepreneurs—ranks among the survey’s top 10 smartest cities. Washingtonians are no dummies, either. With a diverse population and an army of cunning politicians, our nation’s capital gets high marks for smarts.

Other cities, however, are the class clowns to the straight A students above. Orlando, for example, may be home to the most magical place on earth, but survey-takers voted their residents’ intelligence a bit less mesmerizing. Dallas, too, ended up toward the bottom of the intelligence list.

Sure, smart people live all over the United States, but maybe some cities really do have more collective brainpower than others. Read on to see the results.

My assaginment:Voices in the dark.

A story in which the writer/narrator can not see(either blind,blindfolded,in another room,etc.),but can hear two speakers.One "for",the other"against"the narrator.
The first paragraph should set the scene and outline the plot.The rest of the essay should be dialogue.Dialogue should comprise 85% of the paper.The two characters discuss 'back and forth'focusing mostly on the'blind'narrator rather on each other. 
One of the characters must have a strong accent,to help identify the speaker.This account can be written phonetically.Slang and bad grammar are all acceptable,as long as it is in keeping with the characters accent/voice.The second character should be written in a different style.Plain English is fine.
The accent of characters should be strong enough to identify the speaker.This continual use of"he said","she said","James said"etc. is not acceptable for this assignment.The paper should read like a transcipt,with occasional thoughts explanations from the listener where required. 
The paper must be a minimum of 3 pages A4. 
(This's too difficult for me,help me,wuwuwuwu.....)
