翻译:Bhutan did not introduce TV until 1999, and is the last country that is open to TV and the Internet. Its mobile phone and Internet penetrations are as low as 30% and 5% respectively, almost out of tune with the modernized world. Now that the majority of its people have no mobile phones and no access to the Internet, they have little odds of being phubbers or night persons. While the other countries are striving desperately to develop economy and boost GDP at all costs, what Bhutan pursues is GNH (Gross National Happiness). They are willing to take advantage of modern technology, but would do it at their own pace, according to their own needs and at their own proper time. Although likewise thirsting for economic prosperity, Bhutan refuses to realize it at the price of their cherished tradition and culture.不丹直到1999年才开始引进电视,并且是最后一个对电视和互联网开放的国家。它的移动电话和互联网普及率分别低至30%和5%,几乎与现代化的世界不合拍。现在大多数人都没有手机,也没有上网的机会,所以他们很少有机会成为“低头族”或“夜人”。尽管其他国家都在拼命地发展经济,不惜一切代价提振国内生产总值,但不丹所追求的却是国民幸福总值(GNH)。他们愿意利用现代技术,但根据自己的需要和自己固有的时间,会按照自己的步伐去做。尽管同样渴望经济繁荣,不丹却拒绝以他们珍视的传统和文化的代价来实现它。

翻译:The imperial examination system in China began to be put into practice in the Sui Dynasty and lasted more than 1,300 years. In ancient China, class consciousness was distinct and people from lower classes had little chance to gain a position in the official court. But once the imperial examination system was introduced, scholars from poor families had opportunities to take the government exams, which enabled them to bring honor to their families. Such a talent-selection system had great impact not only on the politics, economy, education, cultural concepts and social customs in Chinese feudal society, but also on the education systems of such neighboring countries as Japan, Korea and Vietnam. To some extent, China’s current education system has selectively inherited some

advantages from the imperial examination system.中国的科举制度在隋朝开始实行,持续了1300多年。在中国古代,阶级意识是明显的,下层阶级的人很少有机会在官场中获得一席之地。但是,一旦实行科举制度,来自贫困家庭的学者就有机会参加政府的考试,这使他们能够为他们的家庭带来荣誉。这种人才选拔制度不仅对中国封建社会的政治、经济、教育、文化观念和社会习俗产生了巨大的影响,而且对日本、韩国、越南等周边国家的教育体制也产生了巨大的影响。从某种程度上说,中国现行的教育体制有选择性地从科举制度中继承了一些优势。

翻译:as a manager/an administrative officer, I have worked in four enterprises well known for their great passion and creativity. Rarely do I assign tasks for my employees in a top-down manner. I prefer to place myself on an equal footing with my employees, regarding myself as one to motivate, coordinate or communicate with them, rather than one to lead, monitor or command. The 21st century has set up a higher and more comprehensive standard for managers. Turning from the traditional role of the manager to a successful leader, we need to create an environment filled with passion and innovation for all employees. In this sense, rather than a method or technique, leadership is actually a unique art.作为一名经理/一名行政人员,我曾在四大企业工作过,他们以极大的热情和创造力而闻名。我很少以自顶向下的方式为我的员工分配任务。我更愿意把自己放在与我的员工平等的位置上,把自己当作一个激励、协调或与他们沟通的人,而不是一个领导、监督或指挥的人。21世纪为管理者树立了一个更高、更全面的标准。从管理者的传统角色转变为成功的领导者,我们需要创造一个

充满激情和创新的环境。在这种意义上,领导力实际上是一种独特的艺术,而不是一种方法或技巧。

翻译:Traditional Chinese painting constitutes a unique school of fine art, a school that is distinctly different from any other fine art schools in the world, either in style or in techniques. Traditional Japanese fine art may be the only exception, but there is no doubt that it is heavily influenced by Chinese culture. No other traditional Chinese painting is better known than ink and wash painting. The Chinese do paintings with brushes, dipping their brushes in ink or paint and then skillfully wielding them on the paper. Painters produce pictures with lines and dots — some heavy, some light, some deep, and some pale. In the hands of an outstanding painter, brushes and ink can be highly expressive. Because of this, they are not only treated as tools for drawing pictures, but also as a symbol of artistic pursuit.中国传统绘画是一所独特的美术学校,这所学校与世界上任何其他美术学校有着明显的不同,无论是在风格上还是在技术上。传统的日本美术可能是唯一的例外,但毫无疑问,它受到了中国文化的严重影响。

没有其他的国画比水墨画更出名。中国人用笔刷作画,用笔刷蘸上墨水或颜料,然后熟练地在纸上作画。画家用线条和点来画图画——有些重,有些轻,有些深,有些苍白。在一个杰出的画家的手中,画笔和墨水是很有表现力的。正因为如此,它们不仅被当作绘画工具,而且是艺术追求的象征。

翻译:College students are in the critical period of their personal development. They are rational, enthusiastic, creative and challenging. But they are likely to lose their head when faced with the constantly changing society, increasingly intense competition as well as problems resulting from study, employment, finances and emotions. Consequently, a considerable number of college students are suffering, to some extent, from mental health problems. Mental health is a complex and systemic problem.
