Microsoft's gamble微软的A big phone bill微软天价收购SkypeThe price that Microsoft is paying for Skype looks high 微软将向Skype付天价收购金May 12th 2011 | SAN FRANCISCO | from The Economist print edition STEVE BALLMER was his usual effervescent self on stage at a press conference in San Francisco this week. Announcing an .5 billion purchase of Skype, an internet calling and service, the boss of Microsoft kept boasting about how “super-ambitious” his company is. The firm’s largest-ever acquisition is proof that Microsoft is indeed willing to place big bets on what it considers to be revolutionary technologies. It also represents a significant victory for some bold technology investors.本周在旧金山举办的一场新闻发布会现场,微软CEO史蒂夫鲍尔默(Steve Ballmer)一如既往的兴高采烈。他宣布微软将以85亿美元的价格收购网络电话及视频务公司Skype,并不断吹嘘他的公司是多么得“志向远大”。这起该公司史上最大的收购案明微软确实意图在它认为的革新性科技上投下大笔赌注,也代表着一些具有冒险精神的科技投资者的重大胜利。Much ink has been spilled on the subject of Skype’s price tag, 400 times the company’s 2010 operating profit. Microsoft claims that this lofty sum is justified because Skype can leverage its new parent’s various platforms, including the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system and the Xbox gaming platform, to create exciting new services for the 170m customers that use it regularly. It can also take advantage of Microsoft’s substantial presence in the world of corporate computing to win more business there. Microsoft says it will fit neatly with its popular Lync offering, which combines various communications tools such as chatting and web conferencing in a single package.大幅笔墨都用在85亿美元的标价上,因为这是Skype2010年营业利润的整整400倍。微软宣称这笔巨额标价是合理的,因为Skype使它新的母公司的多种平台得以改变,包括Wp7移动操作系统和Xbox游戏平台,进而为1.7亿它们的常规用户提供令人激动的新务。同时也能充分利用微软在企业计算领域的重要地位在这方面赢得更多的生意。微软说Skype能与今年推出的Lync企业沟通平台极好地结合,后者把包括视频会话和网络会议在内的多种沟通工具融合进一个单一的软件包中。201105/137534Reality TV school 培训学校 OK, here comes the school which can train you who want to get fame or anything else in a reality TV show.Why are these people subjecting themselves to this crazy exercise? They're building their emotional endurance because they desperately long for a chance at this-"She bangs, she bangs"-possible superstar among American Idol.‘? ever think about it, it was grotesque.’I can't say love on The Bachelorrete, (No, I can’t.) or maybe just a good old cat fight on Flavor of Love. ("No way, slap me bitch, or what...")Yes it seems these days everyone wants a piece of reality TV.“I love reality TV, I think my personality will be great for a reality show The hope is that the fame will actually last and for a lucky few it has.Elizabeth Hasselbeck ,a Survivor alarm, has become a star on the view. (I just don’t understand why it’s my fault.) And Jennifer Hudson crooned her way from an American Idol nobody to Oscar Gold. (Look what God can do.) Perhaps you could be the next reality show's super story if only you have some coaching. (Bring it in? Let it out) Welcome to the New York Reality TV School (A little bit noise, breathe, ahaaaaa.) where extroverts, hams(ham :An incompetent actor who overplays 夸张的表演者)and dreamers have come to free their inhibitions and get comfortable in front of TV cameras so they can hopefully one day land that "make it or break it" role.‘Well I'm a dermatologist, and I came here to learn how to present myself on camera.’‘I'm a firefighter and improviser ,and I came and check it out.’"Being at a certain age I want to portray on reality shows, how a succeed/ed/ woman does in reality TV." "Feet, shoulder-length, apart (脚与肩宽), let’s just put our hands on the hips and roll your hips(扭跨)."The school is the brainchild of acting coach Robert Galinsky, the seminar‘s cost 139 dollars a pop, and the curriculum is all about, e" being real".The cameras’ right in this room, soon enough you are gonna forget they’re there."I'm coaching them to be themselves, to be clear about what makes them unique."He also teaches confidence and strategy, he calls this exercise "the perp walk"(slang, 类似于警察拉着罪犯游街示众). By the way it feels absolutely awful."We have them walk through that line, and have to build up some emotional immunity to what's going on because it's very much like a reality show."While yelling and the cameras were too much for one woman, she actually broke down while we were there. And the pressure let another man to literally explode.‘No, it’s…’I mean, you got metrosexual(metrosexual 是走中性风的都市美型男,但总体来说与gay有很大差别,以新潮发型、钻石耳钉和在海滩穿着布裙而著名的小贝就是“都市中性男”的典型代表。)perfect guy here ,/ insult him as I walked past and you got, you know, cheerleader over here , you got college girl with boy scout over here...’It tends to be the craziest people that win, so it's almost like you teach them how to be themselves in their most crazy form."To be comfortable with yourself in your most crazy form, definitely a part of it."Galinsky even crowds an impressive group of D-list(very minor celebrity) reality celebs to give the students tips. Among them is a star student, Jorge Bendersky. Just months ago Jorge was an average New York dog-groomer. But he felt he had "TV potential".I'm good at what I do, I'm funny".So when he heard Cable Channel Animal Planet was doing a competitive reality show for dog-groomers?"I was like, oh my god, that is just screaming my name." He just knew it was his destiny."I was so excited until I really tried to do their auditioning tape. That was a disaster."And we hire Robert Galinsky for coaching, and the rest is TV history.Jorge made it to the final three on Groomer has it. (Groomers, the judges have made their decision.) He didn't win the cash prize but he did win a little bit of fame."I'm hot and hit(出名), as usual, I’m hot and hit, hey.’"Who knows? Maybe I do have a future on the entertainment industry, you know, 'Grooming dogs would (be) hot and hit?, hot and delicious(老美喜欢这样换词,delicious:Very pleasant; delightful: 有趣的;宜人的), let's make the dog hot and delicious."Yah, Ok for now he is doling out (bestow, as in small portions) tips to other wannabes at the reality school. Once they get the show they need that out of you and then you can concentrate on the challenge.The class also preps them to be comfortable with emotional cast mates. Remember her?"I'm sorry I had a breakdown,/ just want, let you know that, I was hired by New York Reality School to do my little sit?"And that guy, he was a "hired plan", too. There're obstacles and stressful moments that cast members also bring on, the calmer you are, the clearer your head is, the better your decisions will be."If you think this school is a bunch of baloney(胡说八道), testing agent Risa Tanania says reality TV is a serious business."People who want to either be in the spotlight or have a story to tell,or have a name to sell or whatever it is,this is a very serious avenue."So here are the top tips you can't live without.No.1: Don't perform--be yourself. If I wanted an actor, I would hire an actor. So don't song and dance me.No.2, be open about personal issues. You’ve got to always be y to be on the surface with your personal issues, whatever they are. People are not asked to come onto reality shows to be private and reclusive.No.3, be camera-pretty.I don't like Chinese people on TV.I don't like Chinese foreheads.No.4, speak in sound bites to increase your airtime. Just train yourself to always include the question on your answer. Tongue bites are so important because that's what people is going to remember.And finally, No.5, be a hero. Your future is going to go, God knows where? You wanna be likable.Maybe if you are likable enough, a little of the fame last. 'Hot and Delicious'is going to be global.That's the funny thing about getting big by a little bit of fame. "I get to have my celebrity picture"---makes a lot of people yearn for a little bit more.I'm Gigi Stone from Night Line in New York.200811/56846They call it the super car club. Porches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis driven by China's super wealthy. "Well, let's just say, my father is very rich. That's all I can tell you." The son of an iron steeling magnate and a self-made media tycoon are among the princes and princesses of Chinese industrial kings."Most girls drive automatic" this woman says, "but I think manual is more interesting"So cars are their toys and this is where Chinese millionaires come out to play on this race track. They can go up to 160 kilometers per hour.The part of a growing class of young elites writing the miracle of Chinese economic growth. China now has more known billionaires than any country besides the ed States. The average age is dropping and their tastes becoming more refined. China is now the second largest market for luxury goods in the world. This one of a kind of Ferrari sold for 1.8-million dollars at auction in Beijing. It was painted in Song dynasty style--porcelain to woo a Chinese buyer."This is a young market. Average age of Ferrari customer world wide is 45,50 years old. In China, it's 34 years old."Other luxury car brands are arriving up in China too, thanks in part to government stimulus. Sales of BMW, Audis and Mercedes are all way up. Including China's hefty luxury and import taxes, these cars cost up to 3 times what they would in other countries.What they're doing is that they're displaying their wealth, they are displaying their social level within society, but also they want to just have fun and they believe they've earned it.All right, now, it's our turn. Needless to say this is my first time in a Lamborghini, let alone an orange Lamborghini. Here we go.“When people see us in these cars. They think we are cool." says this man, "When I am driving, I feel cool."Showing off? Maybe. Shifting in the high gear? Definitely. For better or for worse, this is life in Chinese fast lane. 11/88898

Clinton Takes Over at State Department, Vows to End Divisiveness克林顿就任国务卿促结束分裂不和 Former Senator and U.S. First Lady has officially taken up her duties as secretary of state. Clinton told assembled staff members she will depend on the advice of civil servants and work to end an era of divisiveness in Washington. 美国前参议员及前第一夫人希拉里.克林顿正式就任国务卿。克林顿对国务院全体人员说,她将依靠文职官员们的建议和意见,努力结束华盛顿的分裂不和的时代。Clinton, confirmed by the Senate and sworn into office late Wednesday, was greeted by hundreds of employees packing the main lobby of the State Department as she began her first day on the job. 克林顿的任命得到了参议院的确认,她已在星期三傍晚宣誓就任。当她第一天来上班的时候,她受到了聚集在国务院前厅的几百名雇员的欢迎。The new secretary of state said she will rely on the advice and expertise of the department's more than 20,000 foreign service and civil service employees as they jointly pursue the work of advancing U.S. national security, interests and values around the world. 新国务卿说,她将依靠国务院两万多外交和文职雇员的建议和专业技能,与他们齐心协力,努力在世界各地促进美国的国家安全、国家利益及价值观。Her remarks included no direct criticism of the previous Bush administration, but she also clearly suggested that President Barack Obama's team will be more welcoming of input from government workers, and less divisive. 她在讲话中没有直接批评前布什政府,但是她也明确表示,奥巴马总统的团队将更欢迎政府工作人员提供建议、并要减少分歧。"We want to send a clear and unequivocal message," she said. "This is a team and you are the members of that team. There is not anything that I can get done from the seventh floor, or the President can get done from the Oval Office, unless we make clear we are all on the American team. We are not, any longer, going to tolerate the kind of divisiveness that has paralyzed and undermined our ability to get things done for America."  她说:“我们希望发出明确而直率的信息。这是一个队伍,而你们是这个队伍的成员。总统和我都明确表明,我们是这个美国队伍中的成员,否则我在七楼办公室、总统在椭圆形办公室都将一事无成。我们再也不能容忍那种让我们陷于瘫痪、 使我们丧失为美国作贡献的能力的分裂与不和。”Clinton depicted American foreign policy as having three parts - defense, diplomacy and development - and said the State Department and the affiliated U.S. Agency for International Development are responsible for the latter two. 克林顿说,美国的外交方针有三部分,国防、外交和开发。她说,国务院及其下属机构美国国际开发署负责后两部分的工作。In Senate testimony before her confirmation, she said she would work to build up the U.S. diplomatic corps as part of an exercise of "smart power" by the ed States that leads with diplomacy, rather than the use of military force. 克林顿在得到确认前在参议院发表词时说,她会努力加强美国的外交团队,作为美国使用“智慧力量 ”的一部分,并以外交为主,而不是使用武力。U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the lone cabinet holdover from the Republican Bush administration, is also a prominent advocate of such an approach. 美国国防部长盖茨是共和党布什政府中唯一被留用的内阁成员,他也极力主张采用这样的方针。To underscore the emphasis on diplomacy, President Obama and key aides are to visit the State Department later for a closed-door policy meeting with Clinton - to be followed by a presidential pep talk to staff members. 奥巴马总统及其主要顾问为了强调外交的重要性星期四稍晚将到国务院与克林顿一起举行有关政策的闭门会议。然后,总统将向国务院工作人员发表讲话,鼓舞士气。01/61427

Watch The Queen's Christmas Message Watch Her Majesty's annual Christmas message to the ed Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Christmas is a time for celebration. But this year it is a more sombre occasion for many. Some of those things which could once have been taken for granted suddenly seem less certain, and naturally give rise to feelings of insecurity. People are touched by events which have their roots far across the world. Whether it is the global economy or violence in a distant land, effects can be keenly felt at home. Once again many of our service men and women are serving on operations in common cause to bring peace and security to troubled places. In this 90th year since the end of the First World War, the last survivors recently commemorated the service and enormous sacrifice of their own generation. Their successors in theatres such as Iraq and Afghanistan are still to be found in harm's way in the service of others. For their loved ones, the worry will never cease until they are safely home. In such times as these we can all learn some lessons from the past. We might begin to see things in a new perspective. And certainly, we begin to ask ourselves where it is that we can find lasting happiness. Over the years, those who have seemed to me to be the most happy, contented and fulfilled have always been the people who have lived the most outgoing and unselfish lives; the kind of people who are generous with their talents or their time. There are those who use their prosperity or good fortune for the benefit of others whether they number among the great philanthropists or are people who with whatever they have, simply have a desire to help those less fortunate than themselves.What they offer comes in the form of what can easily be recognized as service to the nation or service to the wider community. As often as not, however, their unselfishness is a simply taken-for-granted part of the life of their family or neighborhood. They tend to have some sense that life itself is full of blessings and is a precious gift for which we should be thankful. When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat, instead they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.I think we have a huge amount to learn from individuals such as these. And what I believe many of us share with them is a source of strength and peace of mind in our families and friends. Indeed, Prince Philip and I can reflect on the blessing, comfort and support we have gained from our own family in this special year for our son, The Prince of Wales.60 years ago, he was baptized here in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace. As parents and grandparents, we feel great pride in seeing our family make their own unique contributions to society. Through his charities, The Prince of Wales has worked to support young people and other causes for the benefit of the wider community, and now his sons are following in his footsteps. At Christmas, we feel very fortunate to have our family around us. But for many of you, this Christmas will mean separation from loved ones and perhaps reflection on the memories of those no longer with us.I hope that, like me, you will be comforted by the example of Jesus of Nazareth who, often in circumstances of great adversity, managed to live an outgoing, unselfish and sacrificial life. Countless millions of people around the world continue to celebrate his birthday at Christmas, inspired by his teaching. He makes it clear that genuine human happiness and satisfaction lie more in giving than receiving; more in serving than in being served.We can surely be grateful that, two thousand years after the birth of Jesus, so many of us are able to draw inspiration from his life and message, and find in him a source of strength and courage. I hope that the Christmas message will encourage and sustain you, too, now and in the coming year.I wish you all a very happy Christmas.200812/60008

Competing rallies have been held in Washington on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, offering different visions for America's future. Hundreds of thousands of people attended the bigger protest, a conservative rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the same spot where the civil rights speech was made 47 years ago.在美国民权领袖马丁.路德.金发表著名演讲“我有一个梦想”47周年之际,两场立场对立的集会在美国首都华盛顿举行,这两场集会对美国的未来提出了不同的观点。几十万人在林肯纪念堂参加了保守派举行的较大的抗议集会。47年前,马丁.路德.金就是在林肯纪念堂的台阶上发表了那个著名民权演讲的。Former Republican party vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was the headline speaker at the conservative event called "Restoring Honor".前共和党总统候选人萨拉.佩林是这次被称为“恢复荣誉”的保守派活动的主要演讲人。She said she was honored to speak at the same historic spot as Martin Luther King Jr.. He was assassinated in 1968, after leading non-violent protests for civil rights.她说,她对能在马丁.路德.金发表演讲的同一个历史性地点讲话感到荣幸。马丁.路德.金在为争取民权而领导了许多非暴力抗议活动后于1968年被暗杀。Palin said she was also proud of the large crowd which had gathered, stretching along the Washington Mall's reflecting pool nearly to the Washington monument.佩林说,她也对大批民众参加这次聚会感到骄傲,聚会人群从林肯纪念堂一直延伸到华盛顿纪念碑附近国家大草坪的倒影池。"It is so humbling to get to be with you patriots, you who are motivated and engaged and concerned, knowing to never retreat. We must restore America and restore her honor," she said.佩林说:“与你们这些爱国者在一起我感到非常荣幸。你们的动机明确,参加和关注这次集会,你们知道永不退却。我们必须恢复美国,恢复美国的荣誉。”201008/112582
