时代周刊:俄罗斯与中国经济社会发展比较

俄罗斯在叶利钦时代,一场史无前例的革命给俄罗斯的经济带来重创,然而,普京接掌政权后,俄罗斯的经济很快走出困境,朝着国富民富的目标大步前进,其发展变化令全世界惊叹更令中国汗颜。2007年,世界银行发布了二份极具震撼力的报告。第一份是俄罗斯经济状况的报告,它指出,俄罗斯经济增长是符合穷人利益的经济增长。第二份是涉及中国的报告,它指出,在2001年至2005年间,中国经济以每年10%的速度增长,但13亿人口中最贫穷的10%的人口实际收入却下降了2.4%。

华东政法大学张雪忠博士谈重庆打黑的法律问题

华东政法大学张雪忠博士这篇联合早报专栏文章,不转来一读简直暴殄天物。

李庄认罪背后的丛林法则

张雪忠(上海)

当李庄在二审中表示认罪后,一些主张李庄有罪并希望其得到惩罚的人,就像赢得了一场竞技体育比赛一样兴奋,并认为李庄是罪有应得。而一些主张李庄无罪或是主张司法机关违背法定程序的人,则对此深感沮丧,并认为李庄不够坚定。在本文中,我想基于自然或丛林状态与社会......

每日一歌,Neon



John Mayer

Neon

Here is another song from the CD "Room For Squares".


When sky blue gets dark enough
To see the colors of the city lights
A trail of ruby red and diamond white
Hits her like a sunrise


She comes and goes and comes and goes
Like no one can


Tonight she's out to lose herself
And find a high on Peachtree Street
From mixed drinks to techno beats it's always
Heavy into everything


She comes and goes and comes and g......

每日一歌,No Such A Thing



John Mayer

No Such A Thing

This song is from the CD "Room For Squares".

"Welcome to the real world", she said to me
Condescendingly
Take a seat
Take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens
I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding
Up my sleeve

They love to tell you
Stay inside the lines
That something's better
On the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my......

每日一歌,Butterfly



Jason Mraz

Butterfly

Jason Mraz has an amazing voice. This song is from latest CD "We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things", which sounds very different from his older stuff.

I’m taking a moment just imaginin’ that I’m dancin’ with you
I’m your pole and all you’re wearing is your u’ve got everything you need, especially me
Sister you’ve got i
Curl your upper lip up and let me look around
Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down
And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch

每日一歌,Ants Marching



Dave Matthews Band

Ants Marching

This is a very interesting band with a very distinctive sound.


He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth bite to eat and he's rolling
Never changes a thing
The week ends the week begins
She thinks, we look at each other
Wondering what the other is thinking
But we never say a thing
These crimes between us grow deeper

Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quiter time
Lights down, you up and die

每日一歌,Ain't Going Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)


Garth Brooks

Ain't Going Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)

当我在听有动感的乡村蓝调音乐时,经常会想站起来跟着音乐一起舞动。


Six o'clock on Friday evening
Momma doesn' t know she's leaving
'Til she hears the screen door slamming
Rubber squealin', gears a-jamming
Local country station just a blaring on the radio
Pick him up at seven and they're headin' to the rodeo
Momma's on the front porch screamin' out her warning
Girl you better get your red head
Back in bed before the m......

每日一歌,Why Georgia



John Mayer

Why Georgia

为什么这么多音乐?因为很多时候的心态是无法用语言来形容的。我希望和大家分享的音乐能给你们带来生活中的色彩与乐趣。

I am driving up 85 in the
kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
and leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
A......

每日一歌,Jolene



Dolly Parton

Jolene

Beautiful song by Dolly Parton about a women named "Jolene", who her husband is having an affair with. She wrote this song when she was 18 and now she is 64.


Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Im begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
You......

每日一歌,What The World Needs Now



Stacey Kent

What The World Needs Now

What the world needs now is love, isn't that so true? This song is quite simple but very catchy. Anyway, this song has touched my heart, and I hope that it will do the same for you.


What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to......

每日一歌,How Wonderful You Are



Gordon Haskell

How Wonderful You Are


"I've always struggled with the art of conversation." Isn't that true? Sometimes words can not fully express our feelings. This is why we have music.


I go out most nights
Attracted by the lights
Listen to the jazz in Harry's Bar
And I know it won't be long
Before they play that song
Do you know how wonderful you are

It's a sentimental sound
Make me wanna fool around
With somebody who is wishing on a star
I'll pull......

每日一歌,From This Moment On



Shania Twain

From This Moment On

This song is a KTV classic and a great wedding song. Again, this is a country song, you can tell by the vocal techniques used.

(I do swear that I'll aways be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better or worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong

每日一歌,When You Say Nothing At All



Keith Whitley

When You Say Nothing At All

Another country classic here for you all to enjoy. Note the instrument playing the intro of the song, it is called a dobro. It is a very distinct country music instrument, in other words, if you hear a dobro playing, you are listening to a country song.

It's amazing
How you can speak
Right to my heart
Without saying a word,
You can light up the dark
Try as I may
I could never explain
What I hear when
You don't say a thing

每日一歌, Always On My Mind



Elvis Presley

Always On My Mind

Another country classic. If you are trying to get your ex-girlfriend back, this is a great song to sing to her. Country music is a great way to pass on a message to someone special. As you can see, the lyrics are simple, and very much resembles letter or a story. Check this song's lyrics out, isn't it beautiful? Isn't it saying just about everything that you want to say to that special someone?


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love y......

Lonestar

Amazed

Beautiful country song from Lonestar. I am sure many people already heard covers of this song by other artists, but here is the original.The country singer often sing a line by starting it with the lowest range of their voice called the "vocal fry". This is one distinctive techniques all country artists uses other then their southern accent.


Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me

One of my favorite Michael Jackson classics. The energy of this song just makes you want to dance. For those of you who have not seen Michael Jackson's movie "This Is It", go watch it! It is awesome!

Wow! What an energy. A great track to groove to when you are roaring down a highway on a high-power bike driving ridiculously over the speed limit. Electronic musicians are great at building dynamics. No kidding, just check out this tune and hear it for yourself!

每日一歌, Imagine



John Lennon

Imagine

John Lennon's messages from his songs inspires people to love each other. After all, the world is one big family. I hope after listen to this song, I hope you will go out and help a complete stranger. When you are helping others, you are the most beneficial person from the experience.

Even though I enjoyed the Beatles, I have always like him better as a solo artist.

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
