Archaeology Archaeology is a source of history, not just a bumble auxiliary discipline. Archaeological data are historical documents in their own right, not mere illustrations to written texts, Just as much as any other historian, an archaeologist studies and tries to reconstitute the process that has created the human world in which we live - and us ourselves in so far as we are each creatures of our age and social environment. Archaeological data are all changes in the material world resulting from human action or, more succinctly, the fossilized results of human behavior. The sum total of these constitutes what may be called the archaeological record. This record exhibits certain peculiarities and deficiencies the consequences of which produce a rather superficial contrast between archaeological history and the more familiar kind based upon written records. Not all human behavior fossilizes. The words I utter and you hear as vibrations in the air are certainly human changes in the material world and may be of great historical significance. Yet they leave no sort of trace in the archaeological records unless they are captured by a dictaphone or written down by a clerk. The movement of troops on the battlefield may "change the course of history," but this is equally ephemeral from the archaeologist's standpoint. What is perhaps worse, most organic materials are perishable. Everything made of wood, hide, wool, linen, grass, hair, and similar materials will decay and vanish in dust in a few years or centuries, save under very exceptional conditions. In a relatively brief period the archaeological record is reduce to mere scraps of stone, bone, glass, metal, and earthenware. Still modern archaeology, by applying appropriate techniques and comparative methods, aided by a few lucky finds from peat-bogs, deserts, and frozen soils, is able to fill up a good deal of the gap. 1Electricity The modern age is an age of electricity. People are so used to electric lights, radio, televisions, and telephones that it is hard to imagine what life would be like without them. When there is a power failure, people grope about in flickering candlelight, cars hesitate in the streets because there are no traffic lights to guide them, and food spoils in silent refrigerators. Yet, people began to understand how electricity works only a little more than two centuries ago. Nature has apparently been experimenting in this field million of years. Scientists are discovering more and more that the living world may hold many interesting secrets of electricity that could benefit humanity. All living cell send out tiny pulses of electricity. As the heart beats, it sends out pulses of record; they m an electrocardiogram, which a doctor can study to determine how well the heart is working. The brain, too, sends out brain waves of electricity, which can be recorded in an electroencephalogram. The electric currents generated by most living cells are extremely small – often so small that sensitive instruments are needed to record them. But in some animals, certain muscle cells have become so specialized as electrical generators that they do not work as muscle cells at all. When large numbers of these cell are linked together, the effects can be astonishing. The electric eel is an amazing storage battery. It can seed a jolt of as much as eight hundred volts of electricity through the water in which it live. ( An electric house current is only one hundred twenty volts.) As many as four-fifths of all the cells in the electric eel’s body are specialized generating electricity, and the strength of the shock it can deliver corresponds roughly to length of its body.

  秋天有一种和谐的美,天空也如此绚丽,经历了夏天,这种绚丽才被绽放了出来落叶在十一月的阳光照射下撒在草地上,带给人们胜过水仙花的快乐Welcome to autumn at Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, I’m Faith. Autumn is easily my favorite time of the year. The days have cooled down, the leaves have turned yellow, and the world is busy preparing herself winter. There's something magical about the clear brisk days, the first smell of the woodstove or the fireplace, the first frost, the canning of the late fruits and vegetables, the pumpkin and cider stands on the roadways. There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen. Fallen leaves lying on the grass in the November sun bring more happiness than the daffodils. School has started, and there's newness in the air. Even though the season is the precursor to winter, somehow, the world knows that winter is necessary, and the long preparation the cold of winter--the preparation that is autumn--is a beautiful, necessary part of the world. 1875

  愿幸福与你永伴,使你亲切可爱;愿你历经磨难,使你坚韧不拔;愿你痛彻心肺,使你通情达理,愿你充满希望,使你幸福快乐Food thoughtThere are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them real!When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened us.Don't go looks; they can deceive. Don't go wealth; even that fades away. Go someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.The brightest future will always be based on a gotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying. 8。

  我们每个人都可能遭遇困境,并且它时常发生有些大灾难不是即刻发生就是待在角落等待时机忽视逆境其实就是在欺骗自己Success Is a ChoiceAll of us ought to be able to prepare the predictable challenges and setbacks that crop up every day. If we expect that life won't be perfect, we'll be able to avoid an impelling ce to quit. But even if you are strong enough to persist through the obstacle course of life and work, sometimes you will encounter an harmful event that will completely knock you on your back.Whether it's a financial loss, the loss of respect of your peers or loved ones, or some other traumatic event in your life these major setbacks leave you doubting yourself and wondering if things can ever change the better again.Adversity happens to all of us, and it happens all the time. Some m of major adversity is either going to be there or it's lying in wait just around the corner. To ignore adversity is to yield to the ultimate self-delusion.But you must recognize that history is full of examples of men and women who achieved greatness despite facing difficulties so steep that they easily could have crushed their spirit and left them lying in the dust. Moses was a stutterer, yet he was called on to be the voice of God. Abraham Lincoln over- came a difficult childhood, depression, the death of two sons,and constant ridicule during the Civil War to become arguably our greatest president ever. Helen Keller made an impact on the world despite being deaf, dumb, and blind from an early age. Franklin Roosevelt had polio.There are endless examples. These were people who not only looked adversity in the face but learned valuable lessons about overcoming difficult circumstances and were able to move ahead. 3955

  必知句地道英语口语 -- ::35 来源: 1) 如果别人在你旁边罗嗦个没完,你感到厌烦了,说"you are so boring"(你真烦!)“shut up!”(闭嘴!)自然没错,可人家受得了吗?不如来一句“oh, come on.give me a break!”(帮帮忙,让我歇歇吧!)这地道幽默吧? )要想说人“气色好”“you look fine!”当然不错,可如果你说“ you’re in the pink! ”就妙得多了,实际上,在英语口语中,表示颜色的词用起来非常形象生动3)“他精力充沛”美国人说:“he is bouncy”而不说"he is energetic ",牢记一些日常对话中的活句式是你一把必备的钥匙如:久仰,"I get mind of you"比”I heard a lot about you.”轻松得多)代问他人好当然能用"please remember me to your sister”或"please give my best wishes to your father"不过,若是很好的朋友,何不说,“please give my love to Jim”5)在中国可不能随便说“我想你”,然而,当和西方人分手时说“Im will miss you”要比说“good-bye”或“see you soon”有趣得多,不妨一试6)有人开会迟到了,你若对他说 “you are late”,听起来象是废话,若说“did you get lost?”,则更能让他歉然,可别说成“get lost!”那可是让人滚蛋的意思 7)别人征求你的意见,问能否开窗户等,你要说“you can do that .”就有点土了,用一句“do you have the time? ”实际上,问他人的姓名,地址都可以这么用:"may I have you name?"要比"what’s your name?

New seeds must be sown and weeds must be pulled. Similarly, to keep the magic of love alive, we must understand its seasons and nurture love’s special needs.The springtime of loveFalling in love is like springtime. We feel as though we will be happy ever. We can’t image not loving a partner. It is a time of innocence. Love seems eternal. It is a magic time when everything seems perfect and works eftlessly. Our partner seems to be the perfect fit. We eftless dance together in harmony and rejoice our good tune.The summer of loveThroughout the summer of love, we realize our partner is not as perfect as we thought. And we have to work on our relationship, not only is our partner from other planet, but he or she is also a human who makes mistakes and flawed in certain ways. Frustration and disappointment arise. Weeds need to be uprooted and plant need extra watering under the hot sun. It is no longer easy to give love and get the love we need. We discover that we are not always happy, and we do not always feel loving. It is not our picture of love. Many couples at this point become disillusioned. They do not want to work on a relationship. They unrealistically expect it to be spring all the time. They blame their partners and give up. They do not realize that love is not always easy; sometimes requires hard work under a hot sun. In the summer season of love, we need to nurture our partner’ needs, as well as ask and get the love we need. It doesn’t happen automatically.The autumn of loveAs result of tending the garden during the summer, we get to harvest results of our hard work. Fall has come. It is a golden time--- rich and fulfilling. We experience a more mature love that accepts and understands our partner’s imperfections as well as our own. It is a time of thanksgiving and sharing. Having worked hard during the summer, we can relax and enjoy the love we have created.The winter of loveThen weather changes again, and winter comes. During the cold barren months of winter, all of our nature pulls back within itself. It is a time of rest, reflection, and renewal. It is a time and relationships we experience only unresolved pain or our shadow self. It is when our lid comes off and our painful feeling emerge. It is a time of solitary growth when who need to look more to ourselves than to our partners love and fulfillment. It is a time of healing, This is the time when men hibernate in their caves and women sink to the bottom of their wells.After loving and healing ourselves through the dark winter of love, then spring inevitably returns. Once again, we are blessed with the feeling of hope, love and an abundance of possibilities. Based on our inner healing and soul searching of our winter journey, we are then able to open our hearts, and feel springtime of love. 03

  我们人类之所以优于动物,是因为人拥有自觉控制自身需求与欲望的能力 What Are People Good One's beliefs are revealed not so much in words or in mal creeds as in the assumptions on which one habitually acts and in the basic values by which all choices are tested.  The cornerstone of my own value system was laid in childhood with parents who believed that personal integrity came first. They never asked, ”What will people think?” The question was,“What will you think of yourself, if you do this or fail to do that?” Thus, living up to one’s own conception of one’s self became a basic value, and the question, “What will people think,” took a subordinate place.  A second basic value, in some ways an extension of the first, I owe to an old college professor, who had suffered more than his share of grief and trouble. Over and over he said to us, “The one thing that really matters is to be bigger than the things that can happen to you. Nothing that can happen to you is half so important that the way in which you end it.”  Gradually I realized that here was the basis of the only really security and peace of mind that a human being can have. Nobody can be sure when disaster, disappointment, injustice, or humiliation, may come to him through no fault of his own. Nor can one be guaranteed against one’s own mistakes and failures. But the way we meet life is ours to choose. And when integrity, titude, dignity, and compassion are our choice, the things that can happen to us lose their power over us.   The acceptance of these two basic values led to a third. If what one is and how one meets life are of first importance, one is not impressed by another's money, status, or power, nor does one judge people by their race, color, or social position. This opens up a whole new world of relationships, when friendships are based on qualities of mind and character, one can have friends among old and young, rich and poor, famous and unknown, educated and unlettered, and among people of all races and all nations.  Given these three basic values, a fourth became inevitable. It is one's duty and obligation to help create a social order in which persons are more important than things, ideas more precious than gadgets, and in which individuals are judged on the basis of personal worth. Moreover, this judgment to be fair, human beings must have an opporty the fullest development of which they are capable. One is thus led to work a world of freedom and justice through those social agencies and institutions which make it possible people everywhere to realize their highest potentialities.   Perhaps all this adds up to a belief in what has been called the human use of human beings. We are set off from the rest of the animal world by our capacity consciously to transcend our physical needs and desires. Men must concern themselves with food and with other physical needs, and they must protect themselves and their own from bodily harm, but these activities are not exclusively human. Many animals concern themselves with these things. When we worship, pray, or feel compassion, when we enjoy a painting, a sunset or a sonata, when we think and reason, pursue ideas, seek truth, or a book, when we protect the weak and helpless, when we honor the noble and cherish the good, when we cooperate with our fellow men to build a better world, our behavior is worthy of our status as human beings 978Friends 朋友 A true friend is someone who reaches your hand and touches your heart. 真正的朋友是一个可以援手帮助并感动你心扉的人 There's always going to be people that hurt you,so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around. 别人常常伤害你,所以你该继续付出信任,并小心挑选你下次信任的人 Make youself a better person and know who you are bee you try and know someone else and expect them to know you. 在你想了解别人也想让别人了解你之前,先完善并了解自己 RememberWhatever happens,happens a reason. 要记住:任何事情的发生都有因有起 How many people actually have 8 true friends?Hardly anyone I know.But some of us have all right friends and good friends. 有多少人可以拥有八个真正的朋友?就我所知少之又少但我们会有泛泛之交和好友 6

  简尼特从她的打字机里抽出纸,紧张地看了看手表差不多到时间了从里面的办公室传来她的老板准备离开的声音门一开一关的声音给他做了8年的秘书,她很熟悉这些声音Double Cross Janet pulled the page from her typewriter and looked nervously at her wrist-watch.It was almost time.From the inner-office came sounds of her boss preparing to leave.The sounds of doors opening and closing.These sounds were well-known to her after eight years as his secretary.“Good-night,Janet.I‘ll see you Monday morning as usual.”He was quick and friendly.“Good-night,Mr.Mason,”she said with a weak smile.Perhaps she only imagined the look of concern in his eyes as he walked out.Janet covered her typewriter.She pulled a lipstick1)and a mirror from her purse.Her hands were cold and shaky when she began to redden her lips and run a comb through her hair.There would be no time to stop at the women’s restroom this evening to do this.She felt a terror slowly rising up inside herself.How could she ever go through with it?But she knew she must.It was too late to retreat.She reached into a drawer and pulled out a knitting basket and a ball of wool with needles sticking out.At the bottom of the basket lay three microfilms),each in a metal case.She stared at them,feeling guilty.She felt a nervous shock as the whistle blew.She stuffed the wool back into the basket.She seized her purse and took a last look a round the office.Then she walked into the hall,filled with secretaries and clerks hurrying home.Click of high-heels made the pounding of Janet’ s heart seem louder,as she moved along with the crowd.It was like every Friday.There was a noisy excitement in the air.Janet held her purse in one hand with the knitting basket hooked over her wrist.As she looked ahead down the long ramp leading to the guard’s gate,her heart sank.Beside the regular guard Scotty there was a guard she never saw bee.He was helping Scotty inspect the people moving through the gate.He looked at their passes and badges.He peered into their purses3) and lunch-pails.More carefully than Scotty,it seemed.Janet retreated to the doorway of the building.As a rule,she did not leave so early and had gotten that an extra guard was stationed at the gate at this hour.“Be calm,”she said to herself.“Be naturalEverything depends on getting through that gate.”Getting the microfilm had been easy enough with her security clearance.But getting them past the guard would be the test.She remembered how she and her husband Charles had gone over,step by step,what she was to do.They had prepared months.He had worked it all out even bee he to ld her what he wanted her to do.It was well known that Janet was still a young bride.It seemed natural,theree,to use a knitting basket to smuggle) the films out of the plant.They chose the night when her old friend Scotty,a senior guard on the ce,took his turn at the gate.She had spent the whole past month working on him.She often left the plant late and stopped at the gate to chat with him.She talked a bout his boy who was in the navy.And she spoke about the little things she was knitting.A few times,she tested him by being chatty,saying nothing about the knitting,and then passing the knitting through without inspection.The crowd at the gate got thin,and the extra guard waved to Scotty as he moved off in the opposite direction.Janet closed her eyes a second and took a deep breath.NowAs naturally as possible,she moved down the ramp.She hoped the smile on her face did not appear as stiff as it felt.She swallowed twice bee she greeted her friend,“Hello,Scooty,how are you?”She felt a rush of guilt as a smile broke across his face browned by the sun.“Good evening,Mrs.Heath.You are early tonight.”“Yes,my husband is meeting me,Scotty.”She held out her pass with her picture on it and pulled back her coat so he could see her badge pinned to her dress.Scotty nodded,“How’s the knitting?”This was it.She removed a baby‘s woolen bootee5) and held it out his inspection.“I’ve finished this one but haven’ t done much on the other.”A horn honked.“Oh,there’ s my husband,I have to run.Good-night,Scotty”She wondered if her voice sounded as shaky to him as it did to her own ears.She crushed the bootee back into the basket and squeezed past the guard house.She half ran along the sidewalk.She ced herself to remain calm and slowed down.She walked toward the green car parked at the curb.She was shaking so much that she could not turn the handle of the door.Charles reached over to open it her and she slid into the seat beside him.He looked at her.“Did you get them?”His voice was tense.He showed pressure he must have been feeling while sitting there waiting her to come through the gate.“Yes,”she nodded with a dead feeling.“Good girl,I know you could do it.”The car moved off into the traffic.“Did you have any trouble getting the stuff?”Charles was pleasant again and gave her a cigarette.“Just try to relax,”he said.“Everything is all right.”At last the car turned into a quiet street.Charles reached into the knitting basket and took the three shiny discs.He put them inside his coat pocket,then handed her the bask et.He kissed her.“See you later.”She entered her apartment like a person in a fog.She crossed to the wide window and looked out.Her husband’s green car was pulling away from the stop-light at the end of the street.She looked up and down the street then saw what she was looking .A black car moved out from the driveway beyond the apartment house and followed her husband.Behind the black car was another one.Inside the car was her boss.“Well,”she said to the empty room,“That’ s that.”But she continued standing,looking out into the street,long after the three cars had disappeared from sigh.She still felt numb6),dead.She wondered when she would begin to feel something,the pain and guilt of a wife who had betrayed her husband.She thought back over every thing that led up to that betrayal――the night less than six weeks after their marriage.She lay with her head on his arm and his hand gently stroked her hair.He confessed to her his connections and told her what he expected her to do.She remembered the horror she felt over this terrible request,the shock and disbelief.Her instinct had been to cry out,to rebel.But some inner voice had warned her to be careful.This was something bigger than just herself and her marriage,a marriage now broken into little pieces.And it had been something bigger than herself which made her tell her boss the facts.His calmness quieted her.She was able later to listen to a plan he developed together with the FBI her to go along with her husband’s plans.It was almost dark outside when she turned from the window and reached a table-lamp.She crossed the room and opened a door to the clothes-closet.She reached a clothes hanger.Suddenly she stopped.One side of the closet was empty.All his clothes were gone.She looked around the room.All his things were gone,as if there never had been such a person as Charles Heath.She was sharply hit by the whole meaning of the situation.Charles had never meant to return.She had just been his tool ――he married her his purpose.She wondered how many other tools there had been bee her.She started to laugh.Then her laughter turned into sobs,great heaving sobs.And she threw herself across the bed.As she gave in to her misery7),there was a fleeting thought:“I’ll cry tonight.Tomorrow,I‘ll call my lawyer.” 18

  My father was a self-taught mandolin player. He was one of the best string instrument players in our town. He could not music, but if he heard a tune a few times, he could play it. When he was younger, he was a member of a small country music band. They would play at local dances and on a few occasions would play the local radio station. He often told us how he had )auditioned and earned a position in a band that featured Patsy Cline as their lead singer. He told the family that after he was hired he never went back. Dad was a very religious man. He stated that there was a lot of drinking and cursing the day of his audition and he did not want to be around that type of environment.Occasionally, Dad would get out his mandolin and play the family. We three children Trisha, Monte and I, George Jr., would often sing along. Songs such as the Tennessee Waltz, Harbor Lights and around Christmas time, the well-known 3)rendition of Silver Bells. "Silver Bells, Silver Bells, its Christmas time in the city" would ring throughout the house. One of Dad's favorite )hymns was "The Old Rugged Cross". We learned the words to the hymn when we were very young, and would sing it with Dad when he would play and sing. Another song that was often shared in our house was a song that accompanied the Walt Disney series Davey Crockett. Dad only had to hear the song twice bee he learned it well enough to play it. "Davey, Davey Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier" was a favorite song the family. He knew we enjoyed the song and the program and would often get out the mandolin after the program was over. I could never get over how he could play the songs so well after only hearing them a few times. I loved to sing, but I never learned how to play the mandolin. This is something I regret to this day.Dad loved to play the mandolin his family he knew we enjoyed singing, and hearing him play. He was like that. If he could give pleasure to others, he would, especially his family. He was always there, sacrificing his time and efts to see that his family had enough in their life. I had to mature into a man and have children of my own bee I realized how much he had sacrificed.I joined the ed States Air ce in January of 196. Whenever I would come home on leave, I would ask Dad to play the mandolin. Nobody played the mandolin like my father. He could touch your soul with the tones that came out of that old mandolin. He seemed to shine when he was playing. You could see his pride in his ability to play so well his family.When Dad was younger, he worked his father on the farm. His father was a farmer and 5)sharecropped a farm the man who owned the property. In 1950, our family moved from the farm. Dad had gained employment at the local 6)limestone 7)quarry. When the quarry closed in August of 1957, he had to seek other employment. He worked Owens Yacht Company in Dundalk, Maryland and Todd Steel in Point of Rocks, Maryland. While working at Todd Steel, he was involved in an accident. His job was to roll angle iron onto a 8)conveyor so that the 9)welders farther up the production line would have it to complete their job. On this particular day Dad got the third index finger of his left hand mashed between two pieces of steel. The doctor who operated on the finger could not save it, and Dad ended up having the tip of the finger )amputated. He didn't lose enough of the finger where it would stop him picking up anything, but it did impact his ability to play the mandolin.After the accident, Dad was reluctant to play the mandolin. He felt that he could not play as well as he had bee the accident. When I came home on leave and asked him to play he would make excuses why he couldn't play. Eventually, we would )wear him down and he would say "Okay, but remember, I can't hold down on the strings the way I used to" or "Since the accident to this finger I can't play as good". the family it didn't make any difference that Dad couldn't play as well. We were just glad that he would play. When he played the old mandolin it would carry us back to a cheerful, happier time in our lives. "Davey, Davey Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier", would again be heard in the little town of Bakerton, West Virginia.In August of 1993 my father was )diagnosed with )inoperable lung cancer. He chose not to receive )chemotherapy treatments so that he could live out the rest of his life in dignity. About a week bee his death, we asked Dad if he would play the mandolin us. He made excuses but said "okay". He knew it would probably be the last time he would play us. He )tuned up the old mandolin and played a few notes. When I looked around, there was not a dry eye in the family. We saw bee us a quiet humble man with an inner strength that comes from knowing God, and living with him in one's life. Dad would never play the mandolin us again. We felt at the time that he wouldn't have enough strength to play, and that makes the memory of that day even stronger. Dad was doing something he had done all his life, giving. As sick as he was, he was still pleasing others. Dad sure could play that Mandolin! 5

  Dear sir,I am very sorry that the pressure of other occupations has prevented me from sending an earlier reply to your letter.In my opinion a man’s first duty is to find a way of supporting himself,thereby relieving other people of the necessity of supporting him.Moreover, the learning to do work of practical value in the world,in an exact and careful manner, is of itself a very important education,the effects of which make themselves felt in all other pursuits.The habit of doing that which you do not care about when you would much rather be doing something else, is invaluable.It would have saved me a frightful waste of time if I had ever had it drilled into me in youth.Success in any scientific career requires an unusual equipment of capacity, industry, and energy.If you possess that equipment, you will find leisure enough after your daily commercial work is over,to make an opening in the scientific ranks yourself.If you don't, you had better stick to commerce.Nothing is less to be desired than the fate of a young man who,as the Scotch proverb says, in “trying to make a spoon spoils a horn,”and becomes a mere hanger-on in literature or in science,when he might have been a useful and a valuable member of Society in other occupations.I think that your father ought to see this letter.Yours faithfully, T. H. Huxley. 7
