Twitter and Facebook Marketing

I recently worked as overseas sales intern in Miaxis Biometrics Co.,Ltd.

Besides releasing products on the Alibaba International, I also has to market on Twitter and facebook. How I market on these social networks is shown as follows.

As a small memeber in such big social networks, it is hard for search engine to hunt you down. So you should find some big trees to lean on. Seek keywords that is relevant to your business. Accounts with more followers has higher placing. Follow them, retweet their status and comment on their status. Grasp every opportunity to mention your product or your company.

Peers are good references. After you done releasing product, you'll find that you have nothing to release to keep your account active. Go find out what your peers do, what website they usually visit. Find the original link, don't just retweet it. If so, when your follower want to see more about your status, they click and go back to the original tweet. You are indirectly lead them away. Push them to others. On the other hand, share the original link of a passage will give others a feeling that you are constantly focusing on the line.

Carefully set your background. put up pictures of dominant products of your company.

Send festival greetings to improve your exsistance and strengthen the connection between you and your followers.

Connect facebook with twitter. Then twitter will automatically release news for you on facebook. Skip repeating and save your time.

How can you become a successful learner

------Translated from Primary 3 text book,English to Chinese

Everyone is born with the ability to learn. But whether or not you can do this well depends on your learning habits. Research shows that successful learners have some good habits in common.

Creating an interest in what they learn

Studies show that if you are interested in something, your brain is more active and it is also easier for you to pay attention to it for a long time. Good learners often connect what they need to learn with something they are interested in. For example, if the need to learn English and they like music or sports, they can listen to Englis songs or watch sports programs in English. This way they will not get bored.

Practicing and learning from mistakes

Good learners think about what they are good at and what they need to practice more. Remember, "use it or lose it "! Even if you learn something well, you will forget it unless you use it. Practice makes perfect. Good learners are also not afraid of making mistakes. Alexander Graham Bell did not invnet the telephone overnight. He successded by trying many times and learning from his mistakes.

Developing their study skills

It is not enough to just study hard. You have to know how to study. Good learners find out the best way to learn well. For example, they may take notes by writing down key words or by drawing mind maps. Good learners also look for ways to review what they have learned. They may do this by reading their notes every day or by explaining the information to another student.

Asking questions

Good learners often ask questions during or after class. They even ask each other and try to find out the answers. Knowledge comes form questioning.

Learning is a life long journey because everyday brings something new. Everything that you learn becomes part of you and changes you, so learn wisely and learn well.

学霸是怎样炼成的

学习是人与生俱来的能力,但是怎么才能学好取决于你的学习习惯。研究表明,学霸们都有一些好的学习习惯。

培养学习兴趣

研究表明,如果你对某事物感兴趣,你的大脑就会更活跃,长时间专注也变得更容易。学霸通常会把要学的东西跟自己感兴趣的事物联系起来。比如,如果他们要学英语而本身喜欢音乐和运动,他们就会听英文歌,看英文的体育频道。这样学习就不会感到枯燥。

多练习,多总结错误

学霸会思考自己擅长什么,哪方面需要更多的练习。记住“要么一直使用,要么直接抛弃”。即使你学的很好,不经常使用还是会忘记的。记住,熟能生巧。同样,学霸不会害怕犯错误。电话不是亚历山大•格雷厄姆•贝尔(美国发明家)一夜之间就发明的。他不断尝试,不断从错误中吸取教训最后才得以成功。

培养学习技能

学习光努力是不够的。你要了解学习的方法。学霸致力于找到最好的学习方法。比如用笔记下关键词或者绘制思维导图。学霸也会寻求温习所学的好方法。他们可能会每天读一遍笔记,或者向别人讲述自己所学。

提问题

学霸通常会在课上或课后提问题。他们甚至相互之间提问以得到答案。知识源自提问。

学习是一辈子的事,因为每天都会出现新事物。你的所学将会成为你的一部分,将会使你改变。所以巧妙的学习,并且要学好哦!!!

How to introduce yourself in English

It's summer. Someone's gonna find an intern.

I have had 3 interviews so far, two of which require English self-introduction. First time, I didn't prepare earlier, so I said directly what I could think of. It's kinda disaster. No structure, halt, looking out of the window.

The second time, I conclude my previous experience and prepare the introduction earlier. The pragraghs below is my self-introduction.

---general information
Hello, my name is ****. My English name is Tomo. You can call me Tomo. I come from Huzhou, Zhejiang, a very beautiful place. This is my second year in Zhejiang University of Technology. I will graduate and get my master's degree next year. So I am eager for an intern. My major is Control Science and Control Engineering. We do research on control algorith,like EMPC on the platform of a 3-DOF helicopter, that is imported from Canada. Matlab and C language is my basic skill. I have published a paper on CCDC, Chinese Control and Decision Conference.

---interest and skill
Except for what is needed for study, I also developed my own interests and skills. I love English very much,I just got my Advanced English Interpretation Certificate. I also like movies, series and sports. So I watch movies and series in English. I'm a big fan of Tom Hanks. As for sports, I play badminton, not quite well, but made a lot of friends. I also acquired some front-ended skills and built a blog for myself, sharing thoughts and reviews about the movies and series I watched.

---experience

---self-evaluation
During my study in university, I laid emphasis on the development of my ability and psychology. Modesty, recognition of things, responsibility, handling of relationships, communication skills and life attitude all composed my harvests in these years. For me, both the spirit of teamwork and thinking from other perspectives mean two important qualities in my work and life.

Chat on Skype

I always want to find someone to talk on Skype. But always fail.

I once have someone, but only talked once. I thought we had a good time. However,she never sends any message to me since then. Is she think that I'm a freak? Am I mad? No, definitely no.

Then, I begin the long way to find a talker. Americans or Canadians are my primary choices. Thanks to the time difference, I never succeed.

So, this time I mainly focus on the English-speaking countries with small time difference. I hunt down two countries, Singapore and Australia.

Singapore is 2 hours later than China, that means if it's 8 o'clock here, it's 6 o'clock in Singapore. Australia is 2 hours earlier than China, that means if it's 8 o'clock here, it's 10 o'clock in Australia. You can choose the talker according to your own conditions. For me, I would like to choose Australia, because I'm quite free during 6 ~ 8 o'clock. Low uncertainty.

I hope this time I can make it.

fear

Everyone has fears.

I once read a story about a woman and how she overcame her fear about caterpillar, which must pass through the cocoon stage to become a butterfly. She is scared of caterpillar, since she was young. Without exaggeration, she might faint onto floor. But many years later, to her friends' surprise, she isn't fear of it anymore, thanks to her daughter. Children are curious about everything. Her little daughter pointed to the little caterpillar on her mum's shoulder, when she was in mum's arms. The woman should have fainted. But when the idea occurred to her that when she fainted her daughter would be another "she", afraid of caterpillar to death. Then reason took over the highland of her mind. She successfully overcame the fear.

Fear is white. It makes your mind blank.

Fear is black. It casts shadow over your little heart.

So guys, if you want to overcome it, you should first face it.

Hair

Hair,I regard it as an ornament,which is used for decoration. One of my friend said she would dye hair frequently if she is in blue or angry. And I saw my uncle and aunt's hair turn white when their daughter's College Entrance examination was approaching. Sometimes I wonder why white hair can't turn to black again like man can't usually make up for their mistakes. So I searched my question with Baidu. Science says it will. You just need more nutrition and head massage. Then I understand why my old granny's hair is still so perfect. She massages her head every morning for about 20 times.

So friends, do you want a black hair even when you're as old as 80, like my grandma? Just care about your hair, give yourself enough nutrition.

Guidelines for Using Color

In interactive software systems that rely on color to convey information, follow these five guidelines to assure that the users of the software receive the information.

  1. Distinguish color by saturation and brightness as well as hue. Avoid subtle color differences. Make sure the contrast between colors is high.One way help, view them in grayscale.
  2. Use distinctive colors.Six most distinctive colors, red, green, yellow, blue, black and white. Each color causes a strong signal on only one color-opponent channel.
  3. Avoid color pairs that color-blind people cannot distinguish. Such as dark red---black; dark red-- dark green; blue---purple; light green---white. Don't use dark reds, blues, or violets against any dark colors. But it is good to use dark reds, blues, and violets against light yellows and greens. You can use Vischeck.com to check colors with various color vision deficencies would see them.
  4. Use color redundantly with other cues.Don't rely on color alone. Apple's iPhoto uses both color and a symbol to distinguish "smart" photo albums from regular albums.
  5. Separate strong opponent colors. Placing opponent colors right next to or on the top of each other causes a disturbing shimmering sensation, and so should be avoided.

If we have a key to get time back

This morning my cellphone fooled me. It showed me that the moment I waked up was 20:30 on January 1st,2010. In fact,it was 7 o'clock in the morning. I told Ray and asked him what was the time. Then he pretended to tell me that it was 20:30, it was January 1st,2010. We two idiots then pretended together. It was a lot of fun.

Then I recalled the signature one of my friends changed yesterday. He said computer has a key to setting everything back to origin. What if we have such a key, too?

For me, although I think I have wasted a lot of my time in college, I don't want the time back. If so,I would probably read the same book, do the same homework, attend the same exams. That's not cool! However, most people would like to get time back, for the mistakes they did, for the people they turned back on. It's a pity that science hasn't made it possible yet. But don't be upset. What we can and should do is to live the rest of our time to its worth. Let bygones be bygones. At then, you will find a brave new world. When you lie in bed and breathe your last, you will not be so regret about your life.

限制性定语从句和非限制性定于从句

  • 定语从句
    在句中起定语作用,修饰某一名词或代词,或修饰整个主句的从句,叫做定语从句(The Attributive Clause)。 被定语从句所修饰的词叫做先行词(Antecedent).定语从句通常跟在先行词后面,由关系词(Relatives)系引出。因此,定语从句又可成为关系分句。

  • 在句中的作用
    限制性定语从句对先行词有解释限定作用,缺省时会对语意产生影响,会使语意不明确;非限制性定语从句对先行词起补充说明的作用,缺省时不会影响语意,主句的语意还是完整的。

  • 形式
    限制性定语从句与先行词关系密切,所以不能用逗号将其与主句隔开(有时候也会有逗号隔开,即定语从句与先行词之间有插入语时);而非限制性定语从句与先行词的关系不是非常密切,所以可以用逗号将其与主句隔开。

(限制性定语从句)

- 例1:Do you remember the day when we first met?
你还记得我们第一次遇见是在哪一天吗?

- 例2:   Clock is a kind of instrument which can tell people time.
钟是一种能够告诉人们时间的仪器。

- 例3:This is the place where he used to live.
这就是他过去居住的地方

(非限制性定语从句)

- 例1:Mr. Zhang, who came to see me yesterday, is an old friend of mine.

张先生昨天来看我,他是我的一位朋友。

- 例2:We walked down the village street, where they were having market day. 
我们沿着村里的大街向前走去,村民们正在那里赶集。
  • 先行词不同
    大多数的限制性和非限制性定语从句的先行词为一个名词或名词短语,但是特殊情况下,非限制性定语从句的先行词可能是整个主句,用which引导。

    • 例: A five-year-old boy can speak two foreign languages, which surprises all the people present. 一个五岁男孩会讲两门外语,这令所有在场的人感到惊讶。
  • 关系词的使用情况有所不同

    • that不可以引导非限制性定语从句:关系词氛围关系代词和关系副词,所有的关系代词和关系副词都可以引导限制性定语从句,而并不是所有的关系代词和关系副词都可以引导非限制性定于从句,这个例外就是that,它不可以引导非限制性定语从句。

      - 例:He gave his mother a color TV set for her birthday, which pleased her a lot.
      使用非限制性定语从句,如果先行词指人就用who/whom(先行词在定语从句中做宾语),whose;如果指物,用which;如果指时间地点且在定语从句中做状语,就用when, where引导。
      
    • 限制性定语从句的特殊替换:在限制性定语从句中,如果先行词指人,且在定语从句中,先行词作为宾语,这时候whom就可以用who代替,但是在非限制性定语从句中不可以。此外,在限制性定语从句中先行词指人时可用that代替(who/whom),同样非限制性定语从句同样不可以。

      - 例:This is the girl whom I met in the street. = This is the girl who I met in the street.
      
    • 限制性定语从句关系代词的省略
      关系代词在限制性定语从句中做宾语时,可以省略。
