E-mail Rage May 3, 2010



http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/worklife/05/03/cb.got.email.rage/index.html?hpt=T3

When was the last time you were driving down the digital highway and felt like you were shot by words?

It happens without warning. You're scanning e-mails and suddenly you're triggered by someone's words or a tone you sense -- or even see; the e-mail is filled with "ALL CAPS" or "Exclamation points!!!" or bold formatting.

Or, here's another hot button: You're in the midst of a public "drive by" e-mail attack, where out of the blue, someone writes an e-mail (without speaking to you first to check their assumptions) and reacts to something you said in a meeting or that you wrote or did. When you see the long list of CC-ed recipients you become furious and shoot back your own defense or offense.

Why does this happen?

Today we're more wired to snap -- especially when using computer keyboards. There's even a physiological trigger pulling us into e-mail shootouts; it's called "e-mail apnea."

那6个圈、7个圈有点令人目不暇接,但最后给出的结果还是令人很高兴。
谁能答对全部10道题?结果将是几岁?

Then the person might be Benjamin Button.

Actually I think the program dynamically adjusts, and gets harder and harder if you're hitting on all cylinders. It might start generating 8 or 9 circles. That's why I gave up after 4 tries.

Actually I tried 2 more times afterwards, and scored 25 and 24 respectively. I think a lot of it is on concentration.

没错。我也感觉到了这一点。

你比我强多了。我试了几次,连一次30以下的都没有。不过,我已经知足了。  
注意力集中确实很重要。

my age May 3, 2010

我玩了兩次,第一次32歲,第二次20歲。

不過這是因為去年暑假我發現了一個好玩的網站,叫做 Lumosity (try this and you should be able to find it on google),加入會員後可以試用七天好像,它就是提供了許多 brain teaser 讓人訓練包括短期記憶、圖像記憶、視覺專注力、文字反應力等等的。因為很好玩,我一共用不同 email 註冊了四次(也就是說至少玩了二十天--減掉中間出去玩的日子等等)。

這個遊戲就跟 Lumosity 中提供的某一個遊戲頗像,所以我有一點經驗值,知道要如何<分配 eyesight 及專注力>。

樂音兄: May 4, 2010

樂音兄:

就跟 08 奧運一樣,我也蠻關心上海世博的(或者說「好奇」更確當一些),所以常在網上觀看各種訊息,特別是各展館的創意外觀,十分吸引我。

不過目前為止還沒有親自去參觀的計畫。你呢?有打算趁這六個月博覽會期間回中國去探探親順便看世博嗎?

上海世博会 May 4, 2010

Mrs. Shi,

目前我还没有回国探亲和参观世博会的计划。一方面是因为一直特别忙。另一方面,我不大爱凑热闹。在国外清静惯了,已经很不习惯那种人山人海、车水马龙的环境。不过,我将来回国时,总还是要去世博会场址看一看的。

难道高校教师也堕落成这样了吗 Jun 16, 2010

http://news.xinhuanet.com/comments/2010-06/14/c_12220867.htm
福州洪山桥附近的“君临大酒楼”里,一名女服务生,当着福州某高校一名女教师及一群在校大学生的面,当众下跪。此前,女服务生没有听到顾客(女教师)召唤,未及时送去一包纸巾,令女教师很不高兴,以不买单相要挟。(6月13日《海峡都市报》)
......

这种事情,如果发生在达官贵人身上,发生在没文化的暴发户身上,我信。但发生在高校女教师身上,发生在人民翻身当家作主60余年的中国,我无论如何也难以相信!可爱的祖国母亲,您怎么会有这种不肖子孙!

我来美国20余年。在这“垂死的、腐朽的”资本主义社会里,我还从未听说过饭店服务员向顾客下跪的奇事呢!

是啊. 几年前有位同事就建议我这样做.

另一位印度同事曾建议我搬到泰国去住, 说那里什么好吃的都有, 海滨风光又美. 不过我似乎是铁杆儿坐地户, 轻易不会搬的.



http://www.proz.com/post/637294#637294

A colleague of mine from 杭州 keeps telling me I should make a trip to China. She actually recommends buying a place over there; because according to her it's a lot more dynamic and exciting. Hmmm, for me it probably takes a lot more than that to make such a move.
