Why do people need to take a bath

The world really have such a tree-trunk. Said before, titian unwrapped a face points to, use in three to five picture; Monet in the 19th century 60 s to 70 s, the total in their first wife card meters. Jas, tiffany pendant in recent ten years, painting, caitlin Newton, a person only. But compared to the Angle of chi jin, he three also. See the following three pictures, such as the same woman back:

When he was first in 1808, ingres 28 years old; Twenty years later, he drew the second picture; And 34 years later, his old man's house is 82 years old, finally he painted the naked woman, to a pack a circle son, and the leading role, and he drew the plane bare back more than half a century.




Words in the early 19th century, Turkish bath in the European heart is idleness and alcohol wine, sexy manul. Turkish bath, along with Turkish coffee, Turkey pipe, as sweet, luxuries, mysterious, Bohemian, sensual, decadent, exotic, "Oriental palace luxury to enjoy," he swallowed the European itch. , "the count of monte cristo," the mysterious monte cristo to put style in Paris show, and is a complete set of Porte, long pipe, Arabian coffee, and concluded that "Oriental people know to enjoy". But in fact, Britain's David library hart Mr Urquhart (David), go to come back after the revolution of the Turkish, posed such a sentence:

"The Turkish bath and Roman bath than... there is no difference between decisive?!"

These words mean, western europeans until in the end, only to find that Turkish bath once were among them -- just give up their own."

Ask touch washing liquid, as most humans born in what was the first in the world. Don't say christians to christening, Chinese old practice or precedent for a child to "three", single children down, have to scrub, then the child is only counted out clean white clean, to the world. So don't like to take a shower of the place and the people, in this life are not escape this time.

Shower this matter, can be summed up a variety of business deals, but no cent two kinds of the essence. First, the water container, or curtains or bubble, or brush or brush. Second, the water spray will be down from a height, then the earth's gravity body over again - simple said, people don't have the bath and shower. Also have one, of course, such as the 5th century BC Greek red clay, it described design: waist-high after a birdbath, one holding a spoon of water content, are covered in shed, next to the one hand into the water, also don't know is or try to wash your hands in the water.


The Greek is the origin of European civilization, for all kinds of contributions, of course also escapes to take a bath. Thousand years BC, Crete have a bath. The greeks a complete urban water supply system, cheerful bath: they both love sports, and in dealing with navigation, daily, of course, know how important hot water to relax the body, clean body and mind. Famous three hundred battle in 480 BC, play (Thermopylae) the word left to become the hot gates. Originally Thermos GMBH is a "hot" in Greek, extending to now, the bathroom in the Thermos, Latin, in English roots are inseparable with Thermo - simple example, take a bath, hot water bottle, bathroom, hot springs, hooked up as early as the 5th century BC.

After the Romans DingDing Europe, ambition, always the pursuit of style, the so-called "glorious that Greece, grand Rome". Take a shower also cannot too stingy. The Romans water supply system is very famous, not afraid of the water shortages. Roman public baths have rules and procedures, it is divided into three: hot, warm, cold shower bathroom, bathroom learn Greek round pool water. As early as in the city of Pompeii by volcanic before swallow, has a Mosaic and murals in the bathroom. Practice is cold water first, again warm bath, hot bath at last. Roman bath to learn Greek, is equipped with the atrium. Young people can walk, exercise, sit lie here chat, as now the gym. In addition, the late Roman empire, has been quite popular, a steam bath in the bathroom.

Greatness in Greek and Roman bath: they have to get rid of the "bath clean body" is the primary stage, vaguely felt the significance of hot water to the body. Then, of course, they have not the blood circulation, skin pores, such as concept, Greek medicine still stays on the analysis of fluid relation with body, the personality of this stage. But they think; Wash hot water bath is not only physical, but also is of great benefit to health. While the public baths, originally built for the convenience of citizens. , unexpectedly let baths have become people's social stage, by the way, happy place, half of the square, the fine. Ancient Rome in many light verse says, can't say on the square, BBS, speaks both to the bathhouse.


But the western Roman empire the barbarian killing, bathing the inheritance in le mouth up. The middle ages, the Roman baths along with their decadent jokes, they become legend. That time, the rich money home rich, thick, big wooden tub bath at home, candy tapestries, of arbitrary; People can't afford to household for the bathroom, you have to find a public place. But with the nations of the middle ages infighting, state, and recruiting church and lack of judah, the king and heaven is the first class, which king dedicated endure a millennium, pondering for the people take a shower? The bathhouse house no longer in the past, but also bear the Roman evils. 3rd century AD, the Roman had make the bathroom all night, men's and women's bath, then open one meat huan field: how many men lined up to go to the bath house for the night, in order to drive; The church to see not bottom go to, in 320 AD, stretched out his hand to tube, women are not allowed to go bathing, men need to overnight the casual, but only men in the pool. The middle ages, the state system of mixed and disorderly, but Canon is more and more severe, public bath more difficult. Christian gauge guarded, naked is very sensitive. Hate can't let his bathing wear black robes. Spanish Catholicism intensity, thought: "take a shower is a kind of corruption, it will only lead to naked." Plus baths in slowly to sneak into the romantic woman, is to let baths reputation destroyed: wives tube with the husband, don't let go out to take a bath.

In the end, give it all to contribute, and pseudoscience. As is known to all, the modern medical system, the doctors with universal love means, entertain foolish ideas. Many doctors believe dust can protect the skin, taking a bath, can destroy the body's immune system, like dirt is armour, can be turned off disease. During the middle ages to poor thermal equipment, don't have a complete concept of health, many people after washes the bath to cool, not to cough sneeze, occasionally infectious skin disease. The doctors peer, dreamed up many myths. For example, take a shower can let a person physically weak, the wind evil invasion. To serve god, for example, can't abandon worldly soil. Such as these, to name but a few. In the middle ages, European west smelly. Western Europe because of the need to compete with the eastern Roman empire, the more the eastern Roman empire learn Greek and Roman bath, the more fighting against, think bathing is not only easy to disease, also wise obscene.

The Renaissance, head of the church, and how much is loose, admit human clothes and face, can reflect the soul. That said: a man unkempt, ragged, most of its soul is ugly, god looked unhappy; Conversely, people targeting top clean, natural soul the tomb-sweeping day, god looked like, but doctors still don't forget it wants. Until the end of the 18th century, doctors are not encouraged to wash the whole body bath, wash wash it, it is best to only wash you can see the part of the ear and face neck, the body is to be careful. Change clothes also need to be careful, don't provoke the evil wind. So until the end of the 18th century, the steam engine has appeared, and modern science and technology has emerged, western europeans felt a little afraid of public bathroom. That era, the spa and shower or separate, hot springs were used as means of treatment, such as the leading large musicians Handel in British history, once a pulp, were sent to Germany aachen bubble hot spring, good, the back big end, wrote "messiah"; When the French revolution, for example, friends of the "people's mara work in bath crock, was stabbed a girl. But that is people have skin disease, not expose crazy, female have to take a shower to meet guests; David therefore draw the mara's death, is thought to have a legacy of ancient Greece, and also bath and light arms is actually associated...


But eastern Europe especially Islam, the name of that place, take a shower it is broad. Accounts for the Ottoman turks Constantinople, give somebody else changed name changed the name is called Istanbul, found the bathroom, copycat repaired countless public bath. Islamists clean, must be clean before church body, can't go with the true god Allah stinking broad. Faith of Muslim day do five times a week can't have too much, take a shower of frequency. In the 17th century, there are as many as 168 in Istanbul, the bathroom, the so-called Turkish bath, although have rocks eastern culture, but also absorbed some of the ancient Greece and Egypt many pies, believe a bath can not only clean the body, still can free the mind and body. 19th century standards of Turkish bath, with no decisive Roman distinction, including facilities, or a steam bath, cold bath, massage, cold water to loosen the set. Be serious, have a hot water infiltrates the body, such as the provider of the rub massage, apply to liquid foam, warm water rinse again. Happy, and then steamed. Western europeans and frown, said the pagan was a bastard, deserved it ill die earlier, while also secretly surprised: they take a bath so frequently, no immune system is broken, an ailing everyday? Is it god bless them? Can they heathens, not impossible!

Until the mid 19th century, everything started to drive. First, western europeans know: Turkish bath and Roman bath has a similar place? We are ungrateful! And then the peculiarity of medicine, the world finally know: shower don't harm to health, instead of to stay healthy? Wash away! Add in the late 19th century, modern water supply system has been forming, bathing truly to Europe.

Greek and Roman public bathroom developed, love Turkish bath, bath can build it in stone, partly due to low latitude, the weather is warm, shouldn't be frozen iceman a bath. Finns to wash the sauna, Nordic is too cold, so want to change a way, built without wooden window, so that black goodness, see the sunrise. No: Finland too cold, half a year or winter, don't choke up heat, not a bath. Russians take a bath, but also the virtue, still love make beating birch branches toward the body, "I wish her thin whip, constantly gently hit on me", not sexual orientation strange abnormal hobby, but blood line speed up playing live pores. Extreme point of the sauna, will be out of steam in the room to kill, a load into the cold water, this approach is very like do groping process in cold dishes, just use people as pig.

Oriental bath, was never so many taboos. The Japanese like hot bath - early europeans think over 47 degrees hot water is not people can bear, but the Japanese have a shower, the temperature just enough. Japanese hot spring, more and more trees, so the classical Japanese wooden tub bath, is really a history more than thousand years, but by 1591, edo beginning of the first public bathrooms. All kinds of customs in Japan, to divide the kanto kansai, so don't even like to take a bath. Shogunate period, for example, edo like hot water bath, sauna and Osaka are identified is king. Bath into the pool is very exquisite, Japanese edo period especially exaggeration: shampoo brush finished, want to go to the pool, into a door. Gnome, low door is open, the children have to bend over and into, in opaque. Japan once with mixed bath device, banned and xu, xu and banned, for many, finally banned. Mix bath it wanted romantic very much, but the tent of meeting notes at the end of the story said, mixing bath is not fun. Do you think can then, in the pool, like pig eight quit playing spider jing, touched the girl's hands hands and feet, but which girl all like this, to drill's den? Each girl to bath and the surrounding must be full of aunt aunt; Don't say you want to go to touch a girl, can't see a pull, a little touch of aunts, their more uncomfortable do not say, be aunts suddenly and violently beat beat pledge a basin of water, it is light.


Ancient Chinese people to take a bath, attention to this point: ten days holiday, is the so-called "Hugh Shang Mu", "comb mu", the shower is specially with the vacation. In the song dynasty, public bath not only become a scale, and guild system, the so-called "perfume line" is also. That time, the europeans are hate to take a bath, feel is bad for your health; Chinese are decided not to take a bath is not on a person, such as wang anshi hate to take a bath, su zhe think his untidiness, is not a serious person. Even prison inmates, summer has five days take a shower. , of course, some local customs are different, such as the so-called "shu life when a bath, died a bath" proverb, said sichuan people don't take a shower, as the 17th century French. In fact, the song dynasty in sichuan pleased with dry cloth dips in water body, not only was soaked. Yuan dynasty when the "sense of piao proverbs solution" said bath is: inner Shang Chi washing for a while, the second room sleep; They entered to washing, but the rest seat; Comb shaved head, feet, cold body, SiShi clothes, eat a few closed wind wine, spirit, and other old now has about the same in the bathroom.

Domestic new bathroom, now many imitation European routines: pool side European sculpture, Turkish bath water bath, etc. Old bathroom still invigorative: bath bubble bath, lying bunks, garment cap box, "please their valuables"! Jiangnan old bathroom and mutton soup is a little similar: begins in the autumn season, a winter business, light into the early spring beginning, want to do a full, people get fall again. Yang director had a "shower", where the old Beijing bathroom taken as the template, is roughly similar to the style of jiangnan public bathroom: male the bathroom door is big thick curtain, bed, each one key distribution chest, take off the net into the pool, soaking like dumplings under a pile of people.

Another rush drench device, beside the bath and go to the bath, which often despise. Yangzhou people proverbs yue "water cover" bags of water in the morning, afternoon, means that the older generation of all love in the morning, afternoon tea bubble bath, happy as the fairy. Big pond water foreskin soaking, is the core of public baths. So, this activity is to take a bath, more than a bubble bath.

Public bath and the bath, in fact, it is more than the category of health. I know have cleanliness, for example, or a little guy talking about health, see everybody with bathing pool, and under the dumplings, often surprised and shouted "this is also called" a bath? Bathroom probably have improved in recent years, will be posted in the pool "soap into the pool," mark, but early factory attached bathroom not so strict. When I was a little boy, I often go to the bathroom of wuxi shipyard, arrived too late and the water became a soapy soup. Yu hua's short story "friends" wrote a type of zhejiang in the bathroom, bathroom mixed feeling and warm, a few pen now.

A common bath process are: holding the bathing necessity, to head or shoulder lift door curtain, mishima yukio "tide SAO", the heroine's dad is this attitude -- that take the door, looking for the shopkeeper to the key, while chatting with acquaintances to take off the clothes. The waiter came up a glass of green tea. That take the door, look for a corner pool, put down the wash bath, try the water temperature with the feet, put both feet in, if the water is very hot, not your teeth in the filar silk air permeability; Again after a while, the half body down, then up to the neck, the hot strength of water body, first warm, then hot, in the end the whole body fever, red like shrimp, began to stab thorn itching all over the body such as the difficulty in breathing, water, two tone, have a rest. If so, shampoo, shower, someone is called a back rub, if not rubbed out, pick the waiter pass the hot towel to wipe the body, lying on the bed, drink some green tea, playing a yawn, the cable car glides graceful body.

The bathroom often have all kinds of business, such as back rubber, stand feet, back rubs, tao ear, etc. After several service call less people, master unless which stand feet really famous - we please yangzhou teacher, a son is very popular here, a good teacher is very easy to line up. Rubbed down is very popular. Husband back rubber, in fact is equal to a whole body massage, the master to tighten the towel body a rub. Early back rub a bit expensive, but few to the service; Later day better, everyone call back rub, especially before the Chinese New Year, everyone is generous, rubbed his master was in short supply, and to line up, acquaintances may occasionally say a team - of course not. Acquaintances in the bathroom, we were sorry to grab each other. Rubbed teacher sometimes see too many people, just shake head wry smile: "I want your money, do you want me to life!"

A good back rub the master can chat, as a taxi driver, and and gates. Such as rub shoulders with a look at shoulder, alert: "shoulder pain?" See who has a scar on the leg, "which hurt?" And then there is a chase speaks eloquently theory of keeping in good health. LaoNianJian shaved the master tube half entitled doctor, rubbed the teacher also top half care doctor. Ripe rubbed the teacher does not need to charge, natural hard. Rubbed the teacher have to shift, of course, usually a bathroom have three to four, which the top for a long, wearing clothes out just responsible for manned. Some return also have fun with: "the disciples of the new belt, hand the key, you teach him." I witnessed two master since rubbed into a bathroom take charge of one of the shareholders, is responsible for the tea and the shopkeeper, often not rubbed, saw only returning to old, hurriedly take off your clothes: "come here, give you wipe a!" Of course, sometimes, the guest said, "yesterday just washed, ok!" - before su shi, specially written Que word, let back rubber person need not too hard: "scale ever phase, two all no more closer look, message back rub, JinRi LaoJun swing cubits, and the light, light hand, householder had no scale."


"Bathing" in a very romantic style: wooden tray shelf liquor, dip in the pool old man pushing each other plate, sip. We here less drink white wine, but drink hot rice wine to the bath. Generally drink a little wine or mutton soup to the bath, the body comfortable warm, beaming, true can remove all ills. You lie, his dip acquaintances started throwing smoke, chat to each other, say children wife parents family. Love still the old man is reading a book (I common green cover version of the seventy s in the bathroom "shuihu QuanChuan", etc.). Angle in the Turkish bath, can see the girls of the coffee and sugar pot, we here not so gorgeous, but all of us love depend on the bed to sleep. The bathroom was not a good tea, tea less aftertaste meaningful. Manned admit, is to find some unusual liquor. His dip but out of the door, the whole body moisture is steamed out, cavity dry person, a cup of hot tea to quench. Some of the old man's house, his dip hungry, you give the waiter a cigarette, "call me out to a wonton". Lad to promise, don't smoke my ear, went out to buy a bowl of wonton, XiLiHuLu eaten, every meal.

The bath, in fact most of the time is the personal feeling. Jiangnan cold in winter, besides mahjong and bathroom over the weekend, really not warm. Eat satisfied to go to the bathroom, acquaintances, warm atmosphere, slow tune and temper again hard will become. Back rubber also few people jump the queue, shower nozzle to each other, with a sentence my father used to joke is: all naked, nothing, for what all sorry again. Wash bath and eat boiled ripe wonton steamed stuffed bun shop, retention, so my dad moved after bath or twenty minutes drive car back to the old bathroom shower. Every New Year's day, I go back to wuxi, and his father go to the bath, manned old rubbed the teacher saw me, standing up:

"Come back?" "Come back."

In china:House prices fell, the poor the most hurt

High prices problem is a hot topic in the annual national "two sessions", many people are eager to house prices plummeted, some experts and scholars more think prices tumbled by thirty percent or more, to help people to buy a house. Property prices collapse has become not buyers want to hear "Gospel".

But, if house prices plunged, as many people wish that far from "good news", it is "bad news", the general public assets will be severely damaged, economy would hit, it was the most benefit from the real estate developers, his reasons are as follows.

The poor have the benefit to be hurt by them

First of all, house prices fell, the people's nightmare began. Every time the stock market crash, gold prices tumbling, poor people of the spring is coming? Promise is not obviously, the poor or the poor. Slump in housing prices and the stock market crash, gold prices tumbling, there is no benefit not only the poor, but also hurt.

On the surface, house prices fell, good for not buyers, but in fact, people still hasn't been to buy a house, is mainly due to the limited funding. For China and many countries, the real estate industry is a pillar industry, house prices fell sharply inevitably be followed by the economic downturn, people have all kinds of investments will also greatly damaged, so the money will only less. At the same time, even if house prices slashed thirty percent, still too expensive for most buyers not, does not necessarily have enough ability to buy a house, become the beneficiaries of property prices tumble.

Moreover, home prices also can bring serious problem of unemployment. Housing market has long been kidnapped economic growth and employment, housing crash will be extremely important, not only will impact about 70 industries, linked to the real estate industry layers will drag on the financial, food, transportation and retail industries, leading industry business is affected, and cause many industry layoffs. If house prices fall, therefore, is not to buy a house of people is not received its first to be hurt by them.

To the people, have to buy a house when house prices fell more injured. Many people have to buy a house, fate is tied with prices already, a lot of people buy a room to owe bank through the loan to the bank with debt, as well as business people don't have enough money with house mortgage loan to the bank, a lot of older people are more the house rent for retirement security, and so on, the house has become their main property, is to have an apartment property prices tumble.

In I live in Hong Kong in 1997, the outbreak of the Asian financial crisis, the housing prices tumbled more than forty percent, the people of Hong Kong property badly shrunk, has more than ten families also became a "negative equity" (the market value of the property is lower than the original building mortgage to buy property), and lead to bankruptcy, sorrowful, charcoal burning suicide by jumping off a building events without it, let a person very plaint, so-called home prices slogan call, once the crash comes, but missed the undoing, believe that people don't want to see this period of history repeat itself in the mainland.

Property prices collapse caused a serious crisis

Second, the law of the housing market is buyers' buy or not to buy up, widely held "rather buy a pledge, the" pledge to buy down, attitude, once falling house prices become a trend, house prices could continue to adjust down significantly, at twenty percent or twenty percent, as "brake" stop falling rapidly, this will undoubtedly cause panic, and lead to serious consequences.

When the global financial crisis broke out in 2008, is that American house prices fell more than thirty percent, causing domino effect caused the global financial tsunami; Then, euro members Greece home prices fell forty percent, set off the crisis. Home prices tend to be severely impact the economy and cause financial crisis, and property prices hike would not all lost, property prices dropped all lost, no countries believe that the government will see prices crash and indifferent, the Chinese government also is such.

Especially, the real estate industry is still is a pillar industry in the development of Chinese economy, in promoting the new urbanization, improve the supporting infrastructure, promote investment in fixed assets, increasing the local finance income and stimulating economic growth plays a central role. Housing crash will damage China's economic development structure, make the local government financial resources are stretched, easy to set off the local debt crisis is now crumbling.

Home prices developers the most benefit

Finally, although house prices tumbled, ordinary people, the government would hurt, but it can gain real estate developers. Buy a house and buy stocks sometimes are similar, everyone wants to "buy low/sell high", however, do the high level but are mostly real estate developers, ordinary people are often "buy high and sell low.

Good developers like retail merchant, the housing market, rising house prices, high prices to buy to sell floor to make money. Bad housing prices fall, buying land cost and building cost will drop, developers and can buy cheap, cheap to build, and then wait for selling when prices rose, its profit is not affected by how much. Often, developers are more willing to in the property market downturn, house prices fell, the chance to buy cheap land and used as reserves.

Home prices, therefore, even if developers selling profits, but also is just a "delayed" (Delay Gratification) process, sooner or later, developers will earn higher returns. So, even if the downfall of high property prices, also won't "down with" developers, there will be only a few small developers because of lack of cash flow problems, more than medium-sized developers often can still continues to make money.

House prices slow down ten percent was best

, of course, the author is not advocated prices should rise, endless but think the more the economy development, urbanization, the expanded, people life level, the higher regions, it is unavoidable that prices tend to be expensive. This New York, London, Hong Kong, and Beijing, Shanghai and guangzhou, same all, high property prices although there are disadvantages, popular discontent, but high prices have is the inevitable product of the development of urbanization, also is the inevitable outcome of the economic development, but also the region's dynamic performance. As Africa Ethiopia although house prices are very low, but not necessarily everyone is willing to buy a house in the past.

For the people, the most ideal situation is not a crash, but the average house prices across the country can slow down about ten percent, after don't rise and fall to run for a period of time, for the public income continues to increase, digestion and high property prices, to an affordable home. At the same time, the government to build more affordable housing, "double limit room", in order to solve the housing difficulties of low-income people.

The wizard could find the horse boat lost in the flight?

A wizard to join Malaysia looking for lost in the horse boat airliner team, let people already in the mood of anxiety, pain, a little more skeptical.
According to reports, this is called Ibrahim (Ibrahim Mat Zin) is the famous wizard should be prime minister in charge of the religious affairs department minister jia m gere (Jamil Khir Baharom) invited and involved in the rescue work.
The locally referred to as "Raja Bomoh sorcerer-kings ()" the wizard, in Kuala Lumpur international airport, said he through his "Bubu" (a kind of traditional fishing tools, usually by the bamboo woven, Malaysia's east coast, jia state fishermen's main tool) to cast spells, found the plane still stay in midair. According to the normal speculate that aircraft navigation after such a long time, China aviation oil has already been used, how can stay in the air? "The plane was hijacked by spirits," he said, "a huge eagle over the in plane", then "the plane suddenly fell.
For this is mysterious, and description of some contradictions, we should react? A netizen in the BBS message said, hope the wizards at least his "Bubu" with good.
With regard to the wizard, we also saw the other materials in other reports. In a 2003 report about Malaysia witch doctor, is also the sorcerer told the media, said his business was so good, now already bought 13 Mercedes, also built a big house. In recent reports about him, and he described as, solved the paranormal events like the famous tower "plateau (Highland towers)", the haunted house "Villa Nabila," and another famous wizard Mona Fandey killings. But the specific details of how to solve, it is not to see.
In fact, witchcraft and medicine such as mystery worship so far is very popular in Malaysia. In the country's national museum, has been held in a "find ghost" as the theme of the exhibition, the results attract 300000 visitors. It's said to be the museum in one hundred, one of history's most popular again. Among the people, even if nowadays science and medicine than has been much progress, hundreds of years ago but many people in Malaysia (around actually also has other) after struggling is willing to seek the aid of witchcraft.
Results, as many reports said, of course, turned to witchcraft success rate may not be high, but have often been duped. According to the Chinese newspaper in Malaysia in 2012, a report in 10 months of this year, nearly 250 report was cheated by god stick or a wizard. While in the patsies, with Chinese as the most.
In public reporting, examples of witchcraft efficacy is not much, but suspected of fraud, murder case is shocking. Such as the above mentioned ibrahim great wizard "solution" Mona Fandy events, this was the case.
According to the data, Mona Fandy originally is a singer and dancer, but was later declared "voodoo" (a kind of primitive religion of west Africa) degree, and quickly became the most famous wizard in Kuala Lumpur, with her husband in Kuala Lumpur opened a wizard clinic. In 1993, Mona clinic to a guest - Malaysia's former Congressman horse orchid · idris. The united malays national organization (umno) members of the organization, the United States, turtles, mo Mona where to use the "supernatural" for themselves for promoting to a higher position. Results were hacked to death and dismembered Mona couple. After the money to the senator, Mona frittered away. Of course, she also bought a luxurious Benz.
Killing off eventually. In 1995, Mona and an accomplice to murder was sentenced to death by hanging. Particularly bizarre is that no matter during the trial before the execution, Mona display are incredibly calm, she's always smiling, wearing bright clothes. Mona killings after exposure, the Malaysian national trigger a strong reaction. People have asked to punish the murderer, and across the country to ban magic and cult.
Now, the horse boat lost affects the parties of the world's attention. In Malaysia government level is responsible for the operation of this fine m gill said the government welcome all parties to help, including the "wizard", as long as the way is not in violation of the Islam. (one half of Malaysia islamic, from doctrinal said that although Islam is not exclusive use herbs and ointment, but does not recognize the talisman of those so-called can exorcism.)
Malaysian officials will be introduced to the wizard in the rescue operation, the goodwill of the supposedly "grasping", but malicious speculation, may also be a consequence is difficult to estimate of pr behavior.
But anyway, let's continue to look forward to a miracle.

Two women's Boston marathon

E.g., the name of the Boston marathon, running circles: it is one of the world's six marathon grand slam (another five to New York, Chicago, London, Berlin and Tokyo), is famous for its registration threshold high, is considered a "runner's mecca". Last year's terrorist bombings added a bit more it pathetique.
Since 1897 the first wave of the horse, however, a 75 - year long years, it is a stubborn bastion of male chauvinism, women have no qualification to compete.
Of course, this is also a reflection of the society as a whole concept at that time. The time it is generally believed that women are biologically cannot afford the marathon such a long run. When the amateur athletic federation recognition of women's longest distance, race was only 1.5 miles (2400 meters)!
In 1967, a man named Catherine, wei ce, 19, a female college student sex discrimination determined to break through the net. The Syracuse, New York university journalism student and athlete to persuade the first person, is she ran 15 times wave horse coach.
Marseille in the first three weeks, she tried to run 42 km with the coach. Run after her feel relaxed, therefore added to run eight kilometers, let the coaches have nothing to say.
Next, she with her initials "K.V.S witzer" registration - don't see gender, and not lie about. Then on the application form of "gender" column, also do not need to sign up performance threshold; Registration fee for $3.
Later, wei policy argue that doing so is not intentionally mislead the organizers, because she write an article in the school, it all the time signature.
Game, on the day of her don't printed on "Keith witzer" and "261" number cloth, mixed in the midst of the crowd wearing very much the same, in no event officials was the run. But not on the track to run for a long time, she was found.
Burly tournament officials Jock Semple step blunt come over, grabbed her shoulders backward push hard, scold a way: "get out of my game! Give me the number clothes!" (Get the hell out of my race and difference me those Numbers!) Said it tore her number cloth.
Si wei ce again surprised and frightened, "pants are a little wet. She tried to run away, but clothes firmly seized by the other party. Her coach came to persuade also invalid.
At that time, swift policy together boyfriend Tom miller, put on a "hero save beauty" : the weight 107 kilograms of former American football player hands yun jin qi, Semple flying out to the whole person, fell on the sidewalk. Miller shouted at his girlfriend: "hard run!" (the Run like hell! This scene was photographer to capture, at that time sensation all over the world.
Finally, wei ce finished nearly 4 hours 20 points (this is far from her normal level: in 1974, she won the New York marathon with 3 hours and 7 points women's champion; the following horse ran out in a wave his record of 2 hours, 51 minutes, won the runner-up). Miller also embrace get beauty return - and she got married (although eventually divorced again). This is another story, don't press the table.
In fact, si wei ce is not the first woman to run the Boston marathon. The glory belongs to Roberta, Gibb (Roberta Gibb).
In November 1942 gibb was born in a family, a professor at the university of Boston suburb. She was running the dog for a walk in the woods near the at home, run 13 kilometers to school every day after school. Was not designed for women's shoes, she had to wear a Red Cross nurse white running shoes.
Have been married and settled in California gibb wave in order to run a horse hard for two years, run about 64 km a day at most. In February 1966, she wrote a letter to sign up, tournament director reply declined, tell her "women do not have to run a marathon" fit time.
This can actually make gibb was determined to run: it is no longer her personal challenge, but more important social significance. The game will come, she sat four days and three nights of the coach, from California, San Diego back to parents' home in Massachusetts.
"St. Patrick's day on April 19," the event day, her mother drive her to start Hopkins town. Gibb wear swimsuit, protected by his brother's shorts and a blue hoodie, hiding in the start area next to the bushes. Set off after the shots, she wait for big forces in the past half, only out to import in the stream of people.
This without registration, the practice of direct entry, running circles commonly known as the "overlord" or "run". Other players quickly noticed she was a woman, but are very friendly and support.
In their encouragement, she took off his cap unlined upper garment, trying to run; The audience also rooting for her. Eventually she finished 3 hours, 21 minutes and 40 seconds, performance is better than two-thirds (125) in 415 participants, prove that running a marathon women is not inferior to men. The governor also shook hands with her and in the end.
After three years, gibb "overlord" run continuous wave. Women are also more and more to join the ranks. Wave in 1996 horse 1996 celebration, Boston, track and field association finally admitted gibb was the woman from 1966 to 1968, the first name, and reissue her a medal.
In gibb and wei policy after strong horse run wave, the amateur athletic federation tough response: first announced a ban on women to participate in the men's race, otherwise will be disqualified from women's game.
After a swift policy female runners for several years, such as Boston had the final concessions. In 1972, Nixon's visit to China, china-us relations in the ice of that year, wave a horse for the first time officially welcomed women to participate in. Now women runners have accounted for more than forty percent to wave the contestants.
Si wei ce later regrets: "now every time I go to the Boston marathon, wet shoulders were tears - many women would jump into my arms crying. They flow tears of joy, because running changed their life. They feel anything can do it."

Video advertising is a uninternet dinosaur

Navigate the browser gives users a "fast forward" button for video AD. Peak elder brother very happy. Every time I see a climax plot suddenly come in a series of long and boring ads, see again not willing to, and not enough time on the trip to the toilet, feeling really kind of insulted, be forced.
Whatsapp, founder of the advertising said no reason: "advertising is not only the destruction of the aesthetic, it can insult your intelligence quotient (IQ) and interrupt your thought process." Cows break company disdain by insulting users to earn money.
The user is not the way to the Internet. YY li3 xue2 ling2 interpretation of the first Internet thought: "always be on the user side, rather than the opposite." But China's video ads go too far in the opposite, to the point of larger foe.
First, the pictures on the Internet advertising usually have a button, let users can always X off advertising. Second, the Youtube video commercials on 5 seconds after the user can jump over it. 5 seconds the implication is that if the AD can't impress you, that force you dislike or even angry, in addition to no other effect. This reversed transmission AD do interesting and practical.
But China's video website didn't do so, not only do they want you to read the ads, but also to play with to help users to escape insult browser "alternative" game of death. Navigate to say to want to defend the rights of the user "fast forward" but wanted to video website maintenance insult user rights.
Now let's look at the other side of the coin.
Video advertising the first reason is that this is my to provide users with + advertising "packaging" of the service, the content of the third party browser has no right to change the service. If you don't like, it can switch.
Navigate the essentially equivalent to "fast forward" button when you are watching TV remote control in his hand. The first seconds ads, you turntable. But the video website will explain: you can turntable, but a second television advertising will not bad after. But is one who is, won't turntable habitual again and see the same AD; If not the fast-forward button, does someone even disgust network video advertising can also read a second is not bad, this two people there was an obvious "slug" or "brain-dead" symptoms. Video sites are lost a part of the advertising time is being viewed.
Video site's advertising is for a bunch of "habits insulted brain-dead or slug". This group of time and energy to one the success of the insulted man. This is listed on the nasdaq, with Internet stocks the aura of the company's true colours. The horse shit bright light.
Video advertising the second reason is that no one watching ads, no money to buy the copyright, the film and television of the creator returns will be less, the industrial chain may collapse. The logic of the same look glamorous justice, as well as stink.
Li3 xue2 ling2 understand Internet thinking 2 and 3 point is: the core competitiveness of products must be free, the more the more competitive things free; Each user will give money, don't expect there will always be a user to send money.
Video website will say, see, we are free, so be through advertising.
The concept is to steal. Put li3 xue2 ling2 words in a more complete, it will not cause misunderstanding, being as an insult pass: the core competitiveness of products must allow the user to zero cost, more competitive something more to do so; Don't expect each user will pay the cost, but there will always be the user pay cost.
Advertising is a cost, and video advertising is to let all users pay the same cost. What a stupid, backward business model. And the way of the Internet.
Some people would say, forced to play video advertising is to "force" users to upgrade to paid membership, and indirectly, realize "let some people pay". But the real way of Internet is that zero cost let users enjoy the core products, with a unique part of additional services to attract people pay; Rather than holding create obstacles for users to enjoy the core products, and paying part stress for smooth enjoy core products. The trick for many years before they can be used on the Internet, the result is pants are lost.
Leader of the Chinese Internet video is essentially the traditional enterprise, dry is the traditional intact online video business, veins flows the blood of the Internet. Is good at holding a hundreds of years of traditional story to financing, buy the copyright, selling ads, expand the scale, then the shielding and the fight against new entrants. The Internet products, business model, don't. Have no interest in innovation. Does not take the initiative to change the industry, just want to be a part of the old chain, sit spoils.
This is a kidnapped by capitalist industry, rather than one driven by the product manager of the Internet industry. This is why when a product manager just gave it to a "fast forward" button, users are pleased, and they seem to be compelled to jump off a building's edge. How fragile products experience, what a stupid business model, how desperate counterattack.
As for not advertising video website can make money, and even no royalties star can make money, the elder brother of the peak also curious gave li3 xue2 ling2 question, the students just starting at $3000 worth of offline English courses for free, for participants who complete the course and in turn reward 100 yuan. Li3 xue2 ling2 didn't reply. Of course, not his reply. How to make money even, even his own education industry could not think clearly.
But the difference is that he dare to do, have faith, he believes that the Internet subversion of energy in essence, the Internet can not overturn it must be subversive, he believes that only smashed up an old world can usher in a new world, he dare not to the user, to dare to break away from the old world, he believes that as long as the stand with the user can see the first ray of fresh light. He is not the past, do not mean overrating oneself.
The future of the Internet and the future of the business world, belong to such a person.
Or let the peak elder brother for a little nutrition. As a single, weak since the media can make money, how to rush out from scratch. Peak elder brother's sincerity and fumble, ought to be able to give those some inspiration to the survival of the past look on tall young diehard.
1, advertising. But only on the bottom, not in front or in the middle. Readers can't insult, don't want to be a curse, don't go. In the article the advertising effect is much better than on the bottom front. Reader is advertising for love, not because of be disturbed or held hostage while watching ads.
2, advertising content. The solicitation CXO to Mr. CAI visiting Israel this article is advertising, but also the content and valuable for peak elder brother at the heart of the readers. The trend of the advertisement content is boring, IQ insult, can only rely on money to let people see the ads will only be called boring.
Han han is said to have taken many such ads in the movie. Expect earnings of the film on this, put on the Internet for free, the more people see, this kind of advertising is more value.
And that durex, make "fusing advertising and content" interesting stuff, let netizens amaze, actively spread for it. Those still spend it on video website put long and boring spam company, the first thing is please, vice President of the other job market, the second is the advertising budget by 90%, the third thing is CEO visit durex.
3, play the reward. In three articles last peak elder brother take readers to pay treasure to account, please play gratuity, a total of 4500 pieces. Considering the pay treasure from the micro letter system, operation inconvenient, also not short of money at the same time, this way didn't last. But, on average, each article 1500, enough to buy daily necessities.
4, a red envelope. This year in the two articles likely remind readers to make money by peak elder brother advice give a red envelope, at the same time again with stock kits in return. The operation much easier than paying treasure to play of the reward, total $50000. Only the micro letter to the public, such as opening a red envelope, let can complete this process a few seconds, can live well on a red envelope.
5, travel. The elder brother of the peak, is responsible for the promotion of the planning, quality control, with the third party agencies to go abroad to investigate Internet tourism projects. The media use own professional, influence and entry position "down" to the case of traditional industry. Earn how many is not released. His guess.
6, consulting and training. Since the media, social marketing, and some big traditional newspaper group transformation, to the peak elder brother as a consultant, please play list, on commission. They have customers, peak elder brother have a practical and professional, hit it off. The income is not disclosed.
Then there is training and advice to the enterprise. I heard an old media people depend on traditional enterprises about the so-called "Internet thinking" is great. Peak elder brother to shame. This is not the media expertise, peak elder brother eloquence is poor, also don't want to be running around, few make the money. But somehow is a way, listed here.
7, paid writing. This is not a soft wen, on the contrary is reading and high levels of hard article reprinted. Premise is two, the first is to pay the company to be dry, the second is your boss to communicate with peak elder brother directly, depth. Willing to pay, the boss himself also willing to spend time, there will be irreparably. So it can ensure the quality, the three sides benefit.
It paid not buy your point of view, but buy your time, professional, and pathways. It didn't pay to you to cheat your brain rot readers, but by you to reach your audience.
8, fat make members, peak elder brother also want to do, also can make, make industry executives that group. How can be a member, errands, just get offline gathering, have to be human, how many have to take. Do not conform to the peak the style of the elder brother wild stock or floating clouds, so just forget about it for the time being.
But as long as have a partner, feng brother out media contacts, you get other, and then to get, then you can make right now.
......
Peak elder brother don't feel even a little bit of complacency, but fortunately, only marvel at the Internet opened to us a had never imagined that the fantasy of riot of color space. But the premise is that you have to let go of old stuff, to embrace it. To upset, not inherited.
For those who want to users eager to "fast forward" button into the video website, is doomed the dinosaurs. Short selling their shares.
Expected soon, there will be a browser "inadvertently leaked" such data, if allowed, more than 80% of the video ads will be users active X. This means that at least 80% of the advertising is invalid, this time the user in the water, toilet brush, weibo, see the micro letter, even more, complaining.
The foundation of traditional advertising has hollow, it has been based on various related to advertising practitioners of kickbacks, false data, black chain cover for each other. This is a conspiracy of system, the corrupt.
The value of video website is building on the quicksand. A conservative estimate, only half of the current market value of their true value. A video website CEO was confident said to peak elder brother, from television to the Internet advertising enough support tens of billions of dollars in total market value. But he forgot, the Internet is the time to come, but also put the rug out from under the existence of the traditional advertising value. He has made a kind of call "KeZhouQiuJian" mistake.
Finally, called on all the media to traditional media landscape is rely on fraud, corrupt and weak foundation of traditional advertising system revolution.

CarPlay:Apple no longer think we overthrow


Always closed iOS finally began to extended beyond the mobile terminal, this time not wearable devices, nor the iTV, but a so-called "CarPlay" auto products.

Familiar with apple's friends must know that over the past few years in March is the season to update, but 2014 this spring, Swiss motor show on the eve of the apple made an exception. From the perspective of a release CarPlay products, apple not only not to be "subversive" any one enterprise, instead more like active to automakers out an olive branch.

Is different from the traditional operating system, vehicle system concept, apple CarPlay OS is not strictly, in short, it is just an iPhone to vest in the car, like Airplay, CarPlay can be understood as iOS link car a protocol, by this agreement, the user can call in the car on the screen, text messaging, listening to music, called Siri, use the navigation, and even open a part of a custom APP.

Why is apple gave an olive branch? House car founder li may explain very clear - "CarPlay is not involved in the control system of the vehicle itself, not contradict this car manufacturers, some basic LBS service iOS maps also can solve. When you want to use it, in other words, can use at any time, do not need, it is impossible to find any - continue to use the original car system, at the same time, it also can make more auto makers are willing to join the apple camp, far more than the car networking function of one or two of the most important.

From the current graphics and video from the point of view, the purpose of CarPlay is to remove the iPhone into the car and driver with multi-function steering wheel buttons, control panel device such as a car comes with can use many functions on the iPhone. Can say, in terms of security and user experience, apple with the most reasonable and popular way to cut into the market.

With the iPhone, the different positioning and entertainment areas, such as the car CarPlay dry is "human life", which is one of the reasons why the apple before entering the industry is more careful, rumours, the apple kick Google Map out of the iOS, apple in the Map, there is the idea in the field of auto.

Actually, the concept of "network" has been discussed, from the tesla Model S after launch, many companies are hoping to share in the great concept car, but in the IT market with the popularity of two systems: iOS and Android with success, and other system, hardware fine opportunity will be more and more small, everyone knows that two giant apple Google enters the automobile market for granted.

The first batch of CarPlay support manufacturers such as Volvo, ferrari, Mercedes cars, follow-up will include BMW, ford, general motors, Honda, hyundai, kia, Peugeot, Toyota, mitsubishi, nissan and so on, the product will be on display at the Geneva motor show this week. Another important player Google also not idle, early at the CES in Las Vegas in January, Google has set up a "open car alliance", the Allies including nvidia, audi, gm, hyundai, Honda, etc.

Predictably, the Android enters the automobile market is likely to be more "brutal" - further integration of the original system, but the Android on the security and stability, will still leave some doubts, this time, apple and grabbed a head start.
 

You can also run a marathon

In the vast majority of people view, running a marathon was one of those "in this life I what matter" feat, very far-fetched. And fly into space, mount Everest, actually visited the seven wonders of the world compared to those aspirations, the difficulty of running a marathon much smaller - does not need to spend a lot of money, don't have to wait a long time.
In fact, you can say that: even if you are zero starting point, just prepare one or two years time, you can run a marathon. But there are three prerequisites: not too fat; Cardiovascular and leg injuries; Guarantee of mileage.
If a year ago, you told me, I will think you are kidding me; If you to half a year ago, I think you don't understand me. But now I am convinced that running a marathon is really easy, most people can do it. Gu: we call it "the first law of running".
Next from belong to the kind of person who lack of exercise cells: fear of gym class at school, always struggling on the edge of the line between sports results. Adult besides occasionally swim swim, play badminton, basic not to take part in sports activities, has no interest in the sports games on TV. Later realized they sit much less, a little bit of sub-health, also want to run, but the air quality in Shanghai has been let my heart creates.
On April 21, 2012 at 8 PM, I finally decided to off psychological burden: "CARES, ran a try!" So the badminton shoes on, and ran a circle at home near the road.
Learned later that same day night in the shandong somewhere, there is a blind friend also climbed over the fence, struggling to run. , of course, I didn't he run so far, only about 2.5 km, and finally a third or a walk - it can't run.
The second day night, I force myself to put all the 2.5 km run down; On the third day go run 3 kilometers, the fourth day and all run... As long as you step by step, any target is no longer far away, this is a people come to the conclusion that the second law of "running".
Soon I changed my stadium, every time more than the last one lap. On May 2, for the first time ran out of the 5 km, 5 days later can run eight kilometers. For five days, and for the first time I ran 10 km, takes 1 hour and 4 minutes (more than 18 minutes now the best result of slow).
Marathon is overcome, but I haven't thought about running a marathon. I tell myself: don't run a marathon runners, are not necessarily is not a good runner; Running fitness, enjoy it. But soon I found "running third law:" the vast majority of runners, sooner or later, running a marathon.
Why is that? Because running is a constant process of inspection, challenge themselves, and the ultimate test of the runner and the challenge, must belong to the marathon. In addition, after running your contact person, access to the BBS of almost all talking about the marathon, too difficult for you to "hold up". Marathon and running, can be addictive, stop.
On May 19, 2012, early in the morning I was alone along the suzhou creek and huangpu river, Shanghai two waterway ran the first private kitchens "marathon". Is another milestone in the same year on September 9, 42.195 kilometers in yantai to complete the first full marathon race. Although has never run more than 30 km distance, but not too bad: 4 hours and 37 minutes, men's 142th.
Since then I have at least a marathon each month, less than half have been running for seven years. The most densely populated record from November 18, 2012 to December 2, three consecutive weeks in guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, three marathon. Wide the horse in the personal best: 4 hours and zero 5 minutes. Two with a cold was running after, although a personal and worst times poor grades, but they all adhere to the finish, not to sit for the car.
As of January 2014, I completed a total of 12 the whole horse, horse two and a half and five motocross, 50 km from 27 to each; Best time is in November 2013 in hangzhou marathon in 3 hours and 38 minutes.
Monkey above mainly talk about the psychological, to demonstrate the possibility of a monkey from the data.
As I examples show that, as long as you start running, will soon be able to run 5 km; As long as you can run 5 kilometers, 10 kilometers is not a problem; And once you have the ability to run a 10 km, 21.1 kilometers of half horse salience. To smoothly run completely, of course, best can guarantee a month from 150 to 200 km mileage, equivalent to 5 to 7 km a day on average.
Marathon have closed time - after this time, the staff will no longer wait for you, the police is no longer a road. China's marathon shutdown time of 6 hours, equivalent to an average speed of 7 km. Most people walk is 5 kilometers per hour, running about 10 kilometers per hour. This means that you only need to run half and half, will complete the game. 2014 years ago in xiamen marathon close up to 7 hours - Tokyo marathon is still such, an average speed of 6 km, that is to say as long as you walk fast, can be finished with brand.
How, do you also want to try? Statement: this article discusses the just "may", not "assurance". If you comply with the three premise condition, the last is still unable to complete a marathon, or monkey ran out of the question, I will not bear any legal responsibility.
Running a marathon, you can do it!
