2、研究发现每天健走一万步不合理

Walking at least 10,000 steps a day for health?

保持健康要日行至少一万步?

Researchers of Brigham and Women's Hospital in the US were curious to know how many steps you need to take a day to maintain good health and live a long life, so they designed a study that included about 17,000 older women.

美国布里格姆妇女医院的研究员们很想知道人们每天需要走多少步才能健康长寿,于是设计了一项约1.7万名老年女性参与的研究。

Their average age was 72. The women all agreed to clip on wearable devices to track their steps as they went about their day-to-day activities.

她们的平均年龄为72岁,都同意佩戴可穿戴设备跟踪自己日常活动中走的步数。

It turns out that women who took about 4,000 steps per day got a boost in longevity, compared with women who took fewer steps.

结果表明,每天走大约4000步的女性比每天步数少于4000步的女性长寿。

The findings were published in JAMA Internal Medicine. Another surprise: The benefits of walking maxed out at about 7,500 steps.

该研究结果发表在《美国医学会内科杂志》上。另外一个意想不到的发现是:步行的好处在7500步左右达到了极限。

一、我们都知道,ear耳朵的意思,英语中也有很多与之相关的习语。今天,我们就总结了几个,一起学习一下吧。

 

1.give one's ears     

give one's ears是个习语,原指古代那些坚持己见而被割耳的人,现在是指不惜任何代价(得到或做)give one's eyesgive one's eye/teeth与之同义。

 

例句:

He would give his ears to her.

为了她,他愿不惜任何代价。

 

2.by ear

表示在演奏时可以不看乐谱,凭记忆就能完成,也可以引申为凭感觉

 

例句:

有些人能不看乐谱弹钢琴。

也可以写作play it by ear,即随机应变,见机行事

 

例句:

他随机应变。

 

3.chew one's ear off

chew one's ear off可不是把某人的耳朵咬掉,那也太残忍了,其实它是美国俚语,表示教训、训斥。需要注意的是要与talk one's ear off(对某人唠叨不休)区分开。

 

例句:

The girl chewed her boyfriend's ear off.

姑娘把男友教训了一顿。

 

4.not dry behind the ears

胎生动物,如马、牛、老虎和狮子之类的幼崽出生后,浑身都是湿的,身上渐渐干了之后,耳朵背后还是湿的,还没有真正长大呢。所以当你发现某人太年轻, 缺乏经验,不适合做某事的时候, 就可以用not dry behind the ear,也可以说成wet behind the ear,意思是缺乏经验乳臭未干

 

例句:

He made a mistake again. It's because he is not dry behind the ears.

他又错了。这是因为他缺乏经验。

 

二、在英语里,Friday并不都是周五的意思,今天让我们和大家一起了解关于Friday的地道英语表达。

 

1Friday face 

“Friday face” 可不是周五的脸,而是引申为神情疲惫,神色不佳的意思。如果有人这样跟你说,你就得检查自己最近的状态啦!

 

例句:

I see you’ve got your Friday face on today.

我觉得你今天不怎么开心啊。

 

2Man Friday 

《鲁宾逊漂流记》里有个仆人叫man Friday,他忠诚又能干,所以,man Friday 有得力助手的意思。

 

例句:

He is the man Friday of police.

他是警方的得力助手。

 

3girl Friday  

man Friday就肯定有girl Fridayman Friday用来形容男忠仆,girl Friday通常用来形容职场中老板的得力助手女秘书。

 

例句:

我们登了广告招聘一名得力的办公室女秘书。

 

4Black Friday 

作为中国人,我们都喜欢过周五,但对于一些外国人来说,他们讨厌星期五,就像一些中国人讨厌数字四一样。但并不是所有人都讨厌周五,不信仰基督教的人,也跟我们一样,很喜欢周五哟。

在外国,信仰基督教的人很忌讳星期五这一天,因为耶稣在这一天被钉死在十字架上,耶稣受难日被称为Black Friday

 

例句:

Black Friday may be a profitable time for sellers, but it is no longer the biggest shopping day of the year.

黑色星期五对于卖家是一个有利可图的日子,但是已经不是一年中最繁忙的购物日了。
