Sense and Nonsense


阡陌 选编


“In terms of cannibalization and how we think about this, I see cannibalization as a huge opportunity for us.”

——苹果公司在今年一月下旬公布了其2012年第四季度的业绩,数据显示,在去年的最后三个月里,该公司售出了2,290万台iPad!不过,其Mac电脑的销量却有所下滑。但苹果公司现任首席执行官蒂姆·库克(Tim Cook)对这样的结果似乎并不担心。他在谈到iPad蚕食Mac电脑的销量时,觉得这跟iPhone手机吞噬iPod播放器的市场份额一样,都没什么大不了的。他表示,苹果在Windows PC市场上看到了比iPad更大的前景。他说:“从自相蚕食以及我们如何考虑这个问题的角度来看,我把自相蚕食看作是我们的一个巨大机遇。”他接着补充说:Our base philosophy is to never fear cannibalization. 有趣的是,库克一直提到cannibalization这个词,它本义是指“同类相食,自相残杀”,在这里喻指“公司内部的自身蚕食”。库克并不担心这种现象的发生,看来,他是深谙“此消彼长”的道理。有更强竞争力的产品自然前景广阔,它取代公司内部的同类产品而赢得更多消费者的欢迎,实为情理之中啊。




“I’m not even sure what it’s getting at. His personalities are very wrong——although mine is closer. The ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs.”


sense-2.jpg


——“我都不知道影片究竟在说什么。对他(乔布斯)的塑造完全失真——虽然我的还比较贴近一些。计算机如何影响人类的理念并不来源于乔布斯。”苹果联合创始人斯蒂夫·沃兹尼亚克在看过今年四月份上映的电影《乔布斯》(原电影名为《史蒂夫·乔布斯:灵感来源》)放出的第一个片段后,就忍不住吐槽起来。他表示,片中的角色和互动纯属虚构,根本不靠谱。这部由索尼公司投资拍摄的乔布斯同名传记电影从去年起就一直备受关注,忠实的苹果粉们更是翘首以盼。不过由此看来,这部影片也只当作非纪实的娱乐片来缅怀一下逝去的乔帮主了。



“What I’ve seen of Princess Kate at public events, at the Olympics and elsewhere is this is someone who’s bright, who’s engaging, who’s a fantastic ambassador for Britain.”


sense-3.jpg


——英国著名作家、布克文学奖两次获得者希拉里·曼特尔(Hilary Mantel)此前公开指责凯特王妃是“designed by a committee and built by craftsmen, with a perfect plastic smile”。此番言论传出后,引起英国民众的普遍不满和驳斥,英首相卡梅伦也公开维护凯特王妃。首相对王妃可谓是不吝溢美之词:“当我在公共事件、奥运会或者其他场合看到凯特王妃时,她看起来很聪明、非常投入,她是英国一位非常具有魅力的大使。”或许,曼特尔的言论正如首相所说是“completely misguided and completely wrong”,又或许她只是选错了批评对象。




“I spent my last £500 on this billboard, please give me a job.”


—— 就业市场的萧条显而易见,独辟蹊径也许会有意想不到的效果。今年二月,英国伦敦一位名叫亚当斯·帕奇蒂(Adam Pacitti)的年轻人在二百五十多份简历都石沉大海后做了个大胆的尝试,他用自己最后的500英镑在伦敦一个巨型广告牌打上求职广告:\"我将最后的500英镑花费在这块广告牌上,请给我一份工作\"。该广告内容还包括帕奇蒂的个人网站,在这里,潜在的雇主可以看到他的个人简历视频以及更多其他信息。广告发出后,帕奇蒂得到了一百多个工作机会。有趣的是,帕奇蒂将自己的第一份薪水用于另一个广告牌,上面写着:“I spent my first wage packet on this billboard, thank you for helping me.”




“I’m fortunate, of course, to survive long enough to have this amazing honor.”

sense-5.jpg


—— 2012年的诺贝尔奖生理学或医学奖颁给了英国生物学家约翰·格登(John Gurdon)和日本医学家山中伸弥(Shinya Yamanaka),以表彰他们在诱导多功能干细胞领域所作的贡献。早在上个世纪60年代,格登一个划时代的实验为细胞核移植和克隆领域的研究作出了开创性的贡献。时隔半个世纪,他当年的研究成果获得了诺贝尔评奖委员会的肯定,与日本医学家山中伸弥分享了在诱导多功能干细胞领域的突破性成就。看来,时间果然有神奇的力量,可以考验真伪,也可以证明一切。同样发生在格登身上的另一个故事也是一个好的证明:格登从小就梦想成为一名科学家,但是由于在中学期间糟糕的成绩,他的这个梦想被校长称作是“异想天开”(ridiculous),要知道他当年的成绩在伊顿公学的二百五十多名学生中排最后一名。谢天谢地,格登当年没有遭受打击一蹶不振,否则,科学史上就少了诺奖功臣。

No Pain, No Gain
一份耕耘 一份收获
∷中国海运(集团)总公司董事总经理 许立荣
Time flies! Three and a half months have passed in the blink of an eye. The short yet fascinating IETP7 is coming to an end. This will be our last presentation in IETP7. Right now, I feel both sad and happy. I am sad because it’s time for us to say goodbye; I am also happy, because we all have made great progress and are leaving the campus full of gains. It is difficult for me to fully express my thoughts in just a few minutes. To put it in a simple way, I want to say, “No pain, no gain”. Through all the pains, I think I have the following gains.
First I have gained a better understanding of the importance of learning English. Today, I can still clearly remember the six requirements Vice Minister Wang Ercheng made at the opening ceremony of IETP7: confidence, diligence, interest, courage, practice, and persistence. During my study, I came to realize that learning English is not just about the language, it actually opens a window for us to the world. It helps us to become “more broad-minded, more creative, and more open”. It also helps us to realize the strategy of “going out”, and to better serve our nation. This is the real motivation for my study. However, to achieve this, I clearly believe, “No pain, no gain”.
Second, I have gained greater confidence in speaking English. In fact, I have been using English now and then in my work. However, as time went by, it seemed that I became more and more reluctant to speak English. Here, in IETP7, with the total immersive teaching approach, with the teachers’ tireless and patient help, my spoken English has become a lot more fluent, and many long forgotten English words have become my friends again. Most importantly, my confidence in using English has been greatly enhanced. I believe, “No pain, no gain”.
Third, I have gained more interest in learning English. Interest is the best teacher. Over the past three and a half months, I took every opportunity to learn English. In class, I found myself travelling all over the world. I was also playing different roles in classroom acting, such as hotel clerks, international guests, secretaries, waiters, customs officers, shop assistants. I got the Best Acting Award from IETP7! My interest is fully aroused and I believe even more in the idea of “No pain, no gain.”
Last, I have gained better English skills. Rome was not built in a day. After such a wonderful IETP7, I found my English skills have been greatly improved. Now, my vocabulary has been enlarged, and I can speak English more fluently. I ca
