1、双十一引爆的全球最大网购节
What's the biggest online shopping day in the world?
Not Valentine's Day.
Not Cyber Monday or Black Friday.
They are the days that follow Thanksgiving in the US and usher in the start of the holiday shopping season.
The winner is China's Singles' Day, celebrated November 11, or 11.11.
Singles' Day began as a day for unmarried or uncoupled people to celebrate their lives.
Single students, looking for an excuse to buy themselves presents, started it on November 11, 1993, reported The Guardian.
It is symbolized by the four number ones in the date of November 11 ? 11.11— and is also called Double Eleven, in reference to the day it was started, said the BBC.

不是情人节。
不是网购星期一或黑色星期五。
它们是美国感恩节后的几天,也迎来了假日购物节的开始。
最大的网购日是中国11月11日的光棍节,或称双十一。
光棍节最开始是单身人士庆祝的日子。
据《卫报》(The Guardian)报道,一些寻找借口给自己买礼物的单身学生从1993年11月11日开始过光棍节。
英国广播公司表示,11月11日这个日期中的4个数字1是光棍节的象征,它也被称为双十一节。

2、跑步有助于健康
We all know that exercise is good for your health. 
But some kinds of exercise may be better than others.
Running, for example, may help to protect against heart disease and other health problems. 
Running may also help you live longer.
Researchers say it is not important how far you run. 
It also does not matter how fast or even how often you run.
As advertisements for the running shoe Nike say, "just do it."

[参考译文] 
我们都知道运动对健康有益。
但有些运动可能比其它运动效果更好。
例如跑步可以帮助防止心脏病和其它疾病。
跑步还可能有助于长寿。
研究人员表示,跑多远并不重要。
甚至跑多快或跑多频繁都没关系。
正如耐克跑鞋的广告所言:“只管去做。”

4、面试中常见的问题
Every interviewer, whether directly or indirectly, will expect you to be able to answer questions like: Why do you want a position in this company? What can you do for my company? There are a few of the more popular interview questions. Take some time to think about the answers, and you'll be much more prepared to make a great impression. At a job interview, your employers will probably ask the following: 
•What jobs have you liked the most? The least? 
•Can you tell me about your present job? 
•What do you expect to be doing five years from now? 
•Why do you want to work for our company? 
•What are your strengths? Your weaknesses? 
•What do you know about our company? 
•Can you give me a reason to hire you? 
•What was your best subject in school? Your worst? 
•What makes you qualified for this job? 
•Can you tell me about the best day you've ever spent on a job? Your worst? 
•How do you define success? 
•Are you able to travel? Relocate? 
•Can you tell me about your skills? 
•Are you able to use a computer? 
•Can you describe your ideal supervisor? 
•Why did you apply for this job? 
•How do you use this specific computer application to solve a job-related program? 
•Do you have any samples of your work? (This is where that portfolio comes in handy!) 

And you're supposed to dress properly. A suit, dress shirt and tie are usually required for men. Women should wear either a suit or a dress with a complementary jacket. They are ALWAYS acceptable. 

Those men with more limited wardrobes should wear a nice sports coat with coordinated slacks and shirt. Women should wear a nice jacket with coordinated skirt or slacks.You should always avoid wearing sneakers to interviews.
