自经济危机席卷全球以来,韩国国内避套的销售额迅速增长。便利店GS25表示,从今年8月至11月16日,全国3300多家卖场的避套销售额比去年同期增加了19%。据分析,经济出现萧条后,推迟生育计划的夫妇增加,因此避套使用量也同步增加。The downturn in South Korea's economy has led to an increase in condom sales, with more adults waiting until their finances are in better shape to have children, retailers said on Tuesday.Major South Korean convenience store giant GS 25 said condom sales have increased by 19 percent since August from the same period a year ago, with the sale numbers going up just as the Seoul stock average and currency started to plunge in value."More couples are planning to delay childbirth in the face of the economic downturn," GS Retail, an operator of GS 25, said in a statement.Sales stiffened further in November when the stock market and the won took some of their hardest hits in years, it said.South Korea has the lowest fertility rate in the developed world with experts saying one of the main reasons is the high cost of education in the highly competitive country."Condom sales are usually recession-free, and tend to peak around the end of the year with many Christmas or year-end parties," an official with retailer Condomania told Reuters. /200811/56949。

  • Eat your carrots. And have some leftover pumpkin pie. 吃些胡萝卜吧,感恩节剩下的南瓜派也拿出来吃点吧。People with high blood levels of alpha-carotene — an antioxidant found in orange fruits and vegetables like carrots, winter squash, oranges and tangerines — live longer and are less likely to die of heart disease and cancer than people who have little or none of it in their bloodstream, a new study reports. 一项新的研究发现,血液中α-胡萝卜素含量高的人比那些不含或含量低的人寿命更长,死于心脏病或癌症的几率也更低。α-胡萝卜素是一种抗氧化剂,富含于橙色的蔬菜瓜果中,比如,葫萝卜、栗南瓜、橙子和柑橘类等。The study does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship, only an association; in the past, rigorous clinical trials of such correlations have often had disappointing results. 这项研究未实两者之间的因果关系,只是说明两者有联系。以前曾有研究人员做过数次严密的临床试验来明两者内在联系,但结果往往不如人意。Still, the study’s results are intriguing. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed alpha-carotene levels in blood samples from more than 15,000 adults who participated in a follow-up study of the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, known as Nhanes, from 1988 to 1994. 不过,这项研究发现还是令人振奋的。研究中,疾病预防控制中心的研究人员分析了一万五千多名参与第三次全国健康与营养调查(1988-1994)跟踪调查的成年人的血样中α-胡萝卜素含量。 /201011/119536。
  • Traveling is unarguably one of the most gratifying experiences a person can have in their lifetime. Traveling awakens the soul, stirs the senses and paints the world in a new light. It may seem like a pastime for only a certain kind of person, but in all actuality, anyone and everyone can and should travel.In my opinion, it's better to travel sooner than later in life for a few very key reasons:1. Traveling can help you figure out what you want to do with your life:Exposing yourself to new places, people and cultures can awaken your sense of purpose. Learning about what's out there in the world can help you determine what feels like you - and what doesn't.It's also especially useful in helping people realize that there's no one way to live a lifetime. Every culture is different and so is every person within those cultures. If you wait till later in life, you run the risk of realizing your potential too late. Don't let opportunity pass you by; explore the world while you're young.2. It promotes independence (and hones survival skills):Catching flights, keeping track of passports and navigating foreign-speaking cities, can force you to think on your feet and make decisions quickly. Being away from your comfort zone really pushes a person to think independently.3. It eliminates resentment later in life:How often do you hear someone much older than you comment on how they should have done something when they were younger? No one wants to be sitting in a rocking chair at age 80, wishing that they had taken that trip when they had the chance. Don't let someone or something stop you from traveling. A chance to experience the world now is greater than any excuse you can come up with for not going. It's worth it and you'll be glad you have those memories later in life, trust me!4. It makes you a more interesting person:Nothing sucks more than talking to a person who has absolutely nothing to say. Traveling can create amazing memories and it serves as a great conversation starter. You'd be surprised how many times travel comes up in conversation, whether it be at a party or at the office. Think of how great it would be if you can jump in next time and compare experiences. Whether you are talking about your recent safari in Africa or that time you swam with dolphins in the Caribbean, it makes you seem knowledgeable and worldly which, let's face it, is totally hot.5. You work hard and deserve it:Life can be crazy these days. With the overload of gadgets, work hours and social networking demands, it's no wonder we haven't broken down as a nation, cracking from all the pressure. Today's youth works harder than ever to achieve more than ever, and there's no better way to reward ourselves and take time out than with a good old vacation.Remember, all that hard work is done in vain if there isn't an equal dose of play to go with it. You don't want to look back in 15 years and realize you wasted you're younger years doing nothing but work, right? So save that hard earned cash and go somewhere you've only dared to dream about- today. Turn fantasy into reality and give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it!I'm sure that one of the main reasons that a young adult would refrain from traveling is lack of funds or overwhelming feelings of not knowing where to start. Traveling doesn't have to be expensive or overwhelming for you to have a great time. There are some affordable deals out there for just about every trip you can imagine; it's all about timing and planning.Understand that airfare is always cheaper in certain months, as are hotel rates and nightlife packages. Travel agents can be really useful in helping you find the best deals and packages. Plus, they know exactly what hotels and attractions to send you to, depending on what your interests are. Also, don't discount your friends and relatives. You never know who has an Uncle with a timeshare or an extra apartment in Miami that their parents rent out during the year. The more you ask, the more you shall receive.Make it a priority to do your homework and planning a vacation will ultimately be fun, exciting, and rewarding - an experience that you will certainly never forget. /200901/60169。

  • 美国:情人节 表达爱意的小礼物比昂贵的奢侈品更受欢迎Is it really the thought that counts? Americans will find out this Valentine's Day.US shoppers will spend 17 percent less, on average, on their sweethearts during the Feb 14 lover's holiday this year, according to a survey by BIGresearch for the National Retail Federation. That comes to about 3 per gift-giver down from 3 last year."Valentine's Day this year will be more about small tokens of affection rather than extravagant purchases," Phil Rist, executive vice president at BIGresearch, said.Some people will do away with gifts altogether and arrange "quality time" with their heart's desire at home instead, while others will set strict budgets for what they are willing to buy, he said.But the most popular traditions won't die too fast. Nearly half of those surveyed said they would go to a restaurant on Valentine's Day and more than one-third said they plan to buy flowers. About 58 percent said they would send greeting cards, up from 56.8 percent last year.According to the survey results, the majority of those surveyed (90.8 percent) will spend the most on their spouse (.22), with other family members getting about one-fifth of their budget (.95). Smaller amounts will be spent on children, teachers, co-workers and pets.Total U.S. spending is expected to reach .7 billion for the holiday. The survey polled 8,850 consumers in early January about their Valentine's Day spending plans. /200902/62005。
