•      In all one's lifetime it is oneself that one spends the most time being with or dealing with. But it is precisely oneself that one has the least understanding of. When you are going upwards in life you tend to overestimate yourself. It seems that everything you seek for is within your reach; luck and opportunities will come your way and you are overjoyed that they constitute part of your worth. When you are going downhill you tend to underestimate yourself, mistaking difficulties and adversities for your own incompetence. It's likely that you think it wise for yourself to know your place and stay aloof from worldly wearing a mask of cowardice, behind which the flow of sap in your life will be retarded.

         To get a thorough understanding of oneself is to gain a correct view of oneself and be a sober realist -- aware of both one's strength and shortage. You may look forward hopefully to the future but be sure not to expect too much, for ideals can never be fully realezed. You may be courageous to meet challenges but it should be clear to you where to direct your efforts. That's to way so long as you have a perfect knowledge of yourself there won't be difficulties you can't overcome, nor obstacles you can't surmount.

         To get a thorough understanding of oneself needs self appreciation. Whether you liken yourself to a towering tree or a blade of grass, whether you think you are a high mountain or a small stone, you represent a state of nature that has its own raison detre. If you earnestly admire yourself you'll have a real sense of self-appreciation, which will give you confidence. As soon as you gain full confidence in yourself you'll be enabled to fight and overcome any adversity.

         To get a thorough understanding of oneself also requires doing oneself a favor when it's needed. In time of anger, do yourself a favor by giving vent to it  in a quiet place so that you won't be hurt by its flames; in time of sadness, do yourself a favor by sharing it with your friends so as to change a gloomy mood into a cheerful one; in time of tiredness, do yourself a favor by getting a good sleep or taking some tonic. Show yourself loving concern about your health and daily life. As you are aware, what a person physically has is but a human body that's vulnerable when exposed to the elements. So if you fall ill, it's up to you to take a good care of yourself. Unless you know perfectly well when and how to do yourself a favor, you won't be confident and ready enough to resist the attack of illness.

         To get a thorough understanding of oneself is to get a full control of one's life. Then one will find one's life full of color and flavor.

  • Transport for London (TfL) has warned of significant traffic disruption in the capital as taxi drivers gear up to protest at rival cab service Uber.


    The protest is the latest in a series across Europe as traditional cab services express anger over what alexander hera they regard as a lack of regulation of Uber.


    The protest will start in Trafalgar Square at 14:00 BST.


    Cabbies are unhappy that Uber is using a mobile app to work out the cost of rides.


    They argue this is tantamount alexander hera pre wedding to a taxi meter, which only black cabs are legally entitled to use in London.


    The Metropolitan Police says conditions have been imposed on protesters after they failed to meet with officers to discuss their plans.


    Garrett Emmerson, Transport for London's chief operating officer for surface transport, said: "A number of taxi drivers are set to cause pointless disruption for Londoners over a legal issue that is down to the alexander hera價錢 courts to decide upon.


    "TfL will work with the Metropolitan Police to do all we can to keep central London moving, however, given the scale of the likely disruption, we would advise drivers to avoid the area if at all possible."

  • Social networking also places a premium on likability. More employers track employees' likability on in-house social networks and chat services. They recruit those who are trusted and well-liked to spread information or push through changes. Some companies take these employees' social clout into account when handing out raises and promotions.


    Listeners tend to like speakers who seem trustworthy and authentic, who tell an engaging or persuasive story and who seem to have things in common with them, says Noah Zandan, president of Quantified Impressions in Austin, Texas, a provider of communications analytics. On video, these qualities can be hard to convey.


    Many people make a negative impression on video by becoming stiff and emotionless, or by exaggerating their points. 'Overacting is rampant. It's easy to go Ryan Seacrest when the red light goes on, ' says Tim Sanders, author of 'The Likeability Factor' and a lecturer on the topic.


    Job applicants interviewed on video receive lower likability ratings and interview scores, and are less likely to be recommended for hiring, than candidates interviewed in person, according to a study published last year in Management Decision.

  • What is the best advice you ever received?


    As an entrepreneur, Paul Buchheit -- who is one of the partners at Y Combinator and the creator of Gmail -- always said build something that a few people absolutely love rather than build something that a lot of people just kind of like.


     For any startup entrepreneur those are some of the wisest words because it's easy to push out something that's kind of good, but it's really, really hard to push out something that's amazing. 


    That's what you should strive for.


    What's the next big project you want to tackle?


    I think we've really hit on something with the convergence of content and commerce in food, specifically in the way we tell the stories of the products and artisans we showcase. 


    We view ourselves equally as an e-commerce company as we do storytellers. 


    Video has always been a fascinating medium for me, and we've just started delving further into video-based content. Photography has always been core to our user experience, but I think there's an exciting opportunity for us to use video to take our content far deeper.

    Breton admirait beaucoup ce pionnier de surréalisme. En 1919, il a créé la revue Littérature et a travaillé ensemble avec Philippe Soupault (poète et romancier français, un des fondateurs du réalisme) sur Les Champs magnétiques, dans lequel ils expriment le désespoir de la jeune génération après la guerre en utilisant des mots illogiques.


     C’est la première œuvre de surréalisme écrit par la méthode de l’écriture automatique 住宅裝修.


     Le 15 octobre 1924, Breton a publié Le Manifeste du surréalisme.


     Le manifeste nie le réalisme et les romans traditionnels. 


    Selon lui, le réalisme est la racine de la banalité et de la haine dans l’esprit 中醫論汗


    Breton a proposé la définition du surréalisme dans le manifeste : « SURRÉALISME, n. m. Automatisme psychique pur, par lequel on se propose d’exprimer, soit verbalement, soit par écrit, soit de toute autre manière, le fonctionnement réel de la pensée.


     Dictée de la pensée, en l’absence de tout contrôle exercé par la raison, en dehors de toute préoccupation esthétique ou morale. »
