为什么婚戒要戴在无名指上zz

1,首先大家伸出两手,将中指向下弯曲,对靠在一起,就是中指的背跟背靠在一起
2,然后将其它的4个手指分别指尖对碰
3,在开始游戏的正题之前,请确保以下过程中,5个手指只允许一对手指分开。下面开始游戏的正题。
4,请张开你们那对大母指,大母指代表我们的父母,能够张开,每个人都会有生老病死,父母也会有一天离我们而去。
5,请大家合上大母指,再张开食指,食指代表兄弟姐妹,他们也都会有自己的家世,也会离开我们。
6,请大家合上食指,再张开小母指,小母指代表子女,子女长大后,迟早有一天,会有自己的家庭生活,也会离开我们。 
7,那么,请大家合上小母指,再试着张开无名指。这个时候,大家会惊奇的发现无名指怎么也张不开,因为无名指代表夫妻,是一辈子不分离的。真正的爱,粘在一起后,是永生永世都分不开的。

Some spark from today
 
1. Input-output Balance
Spark from a paraphrase of David Lewis: "Reading makes a person full. Speaking makes a person ready. Writing makes a person exact. Listening makes a person wise."  I found I prefer to speaking and writing, but not reading and listening, which are well done by Akhil. I found the funny guy  had very good habit in reading. There are always some different books with different subjects when I visit his room. Unlike me, there are always the two books, Learning Perl and Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics. We discussed this topic tonight, about the different character/habit for different people; I prefer to writing blog, but Akhil prefers to reading Bill Gate. It’s normal for people have different features. But the point is that we need to balance our feature. Just as AKhil said, ‘ you need to get before you show’, yes, similarily, you need to input before you output. Always to output, but not input is not a good habit.
Conclusion: Try to read more things, and try to listen more than talking.
 
2. target="_blank" does NOT work for new window link.

Before, we used

<a href="document.html" target="_blank">click to Open in new window</a>

to open a URL in a new window. But now it can not pass the W3C validation check with the following error msg("there is no attribute target for this element(in this HTML version)"), which is one rule of the new strict DOCTYPE of HTML4.01/XHTML1.0/XHTML1.1.

Refer to:

  • Kevin Yank的《New-Window links in a Standards-Compliant World》
  • 《Standards-based Replacement for target="_blank" in External links》
  • http://www.w3cn.org/article/tips/2005/107.html
  •  

    3. Some good websites:

  • www.HowStuffWorks.com  —- 
  • Very good for knowledge on what you do not know)

  • www.download.com          —-
  • free resource for download, like software, music, game….

  • music.yahoo.com               —-
  • very good for music hunting

    —-Come back from the group mtg.  Thanks for David’s muffin

    I just thought whether I can figure out the UCRs distribution in chromosome like the graph in this page. Also a sliding window (25kb or some length) along with the chr, calculate the UCRs number or percentage of DNA classified as UCRs… something like that. Maybe we can compare between different fish species.
    Since we already had the UCRs data for zebrafish,human,mouse,fugu (maybe more should be included), I think it would come out someday in next week.

    Boris mentioned the synteny again, for instance, two genes (x, y) in Mouse_chr1 occur in the same order in Human_chr4. Maybe we can get some idea after drawing out that kind of cases.

    David presented the topic of TSS(transcription start site) Turnover. Very interesting phenomenon! Maybe UCRs–Gene also has that kind of topic.
