You don#39;t have to be a millionaire to steal these ideas about work, retirement and even getting up in the morning。即使你并不是百万富翁,你也可以偷学这些工作理念、退休概念甚至起床时间观念。1. They Don#39;t Retire When Everyone Else Does。他们不会像普通人一样早早退休。The average age for Americans to stop working is now 61, according to a recent Gallup poll, up from 59 ten years ago and 57 in the early 1990s. But America#39;s highest earners -- i.e., those with the biggest savings -- don#39;t plan on retiring until they#39;re at least 70, another new survey shows. Almost half of those people, who make ,000 or more a year, say they plan to keep working because they want to.根据最近的盖洛普民意测验显示,美国人现在的平均退休年龄是61岁,从20世纪90年代的57岁到十年前的59岁,退休年龄一直持推后的趋势。但是根据另一项最新研究显示,美国的最高收入群体——比如那些存款数目最大的人——至少到70岁之后才会计划退休。那些年收入7.5万美元甚至更高的人群中有将近半数称他们希望工作,所以会一直干下去。Granted, this group holds white-collar jobs that aren#39;t physically taxing -- but the ;never quit; concept is one that almost anyone can embrace. Stepping down to a less stressful position, or shifting to part-time work can put you farther ahead, savings-wise, when you do decide to retire。当然,这一富人群体都是不从事体力劳动的白领——但是他们“奋斗不止”的信念是每个人都应该积极借鉴的。退居到压力较小的岗位,或者换成一份兼职工作可以推迟你的退休年龄,这对你真正选择退休之后的生活有利。2. They Don#39;t Wake Up At 6 a.m. And Answer Emails。他们不会6点钟才起床回复邮件。You#39;re no doubt aware that the highest achievers are up earlier than most people: The National Sleep Foundation says most 30- to 45-year-olds get out of bed at 6 a.m. on a typical weekday morning, while this Guardian article shows that many CEOs of major companies wake closer to 5. You may not know, though, what those leaders are doing with the extra hour。你一定清楚收入最高的那些人比大多数人早起:根据全国睡眠研究基地研究显示,大多数30至45岁之间的人在工作日早晨6点钟起床,而一篇《卫报》上的消息则显示许多大型企业的CEO都在5点之前起床。你也许并不知道那些企业领导者们利用早起的时间干什么。Laura Vanderkam#39;s new book What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast gives plenty of concrete examples (and none of them involves catching up on Facebook). For instance: A businesswoman knows she could spend her early-morning hour cleaning out her in-box, but since that#39;s a job she can do in 5-minute breaks during the day, she devotes the alone time to making real, uninterrupted headway on a project that she#39;s decided is a top priority for her -- and that will have clear career benefits, teeing her up for a promotion or other advancement。劳拉·凡德卡姆的新书《大多数成功人士在早餐前干什么》中给出了很多实际的例子(这些例子中无一例包括查看脸谱网)。例如,一个职场女性知道自己可以用早上早起的时间清理她的收件箱,但是这件事她可以利用白天里5分钟的休息时间做完,所以她就用利用这段时间专心来跟进一天中最重要的项目工作——这种工作态度无疑会创造真正的工作效益,也为她升职、加薪做好了准备。3. They Don#39;t Ignore Job Offers For Lateral Moves。他们不会忽略平级跳槽的机会。While many top earners keep an eye out for their next career move, they#39;re not always looking to move up. They#39;re often looking to make lateral moves, says Amanda Augustine, job-search expert at TheLadders.com, which originally began as a job-search site for people earning 0,000 and more (they#39;ve since expanded to all salaries). This group is willing to move horizontally, or even to take a step down,很多有钱人会时刻关注职场机会,但他们并不总是向上看的,求职网站the ladder的求职专家阿曼达·奥古斯丁称,这些富人们常常会寻找平级跳槽的机会,求职网站the ladder一开始只为年收入10万美元以上的人提供就业信息(但后来他们已经扩展到为各薪酬阶层的人提供信息)。Augustine says, if there is a future opportunity to move up and take on an even better role. Employees at every level can learn from this behavior, she says. Making a sideways career change (either within your company or to a new one with a similar title, pay and responsibility) can also be worth it if your industry is contracting and the new job is in a field that#39;s growing, or if you#39;ll be saving money with a shorter commute or cheaper parking, or getting better benefits, whether insurance- or retirement-related。奥古斯丁表示,只要有升迁或获得更好的职位的机会,富人们愿意平级跳槽,甚至接受比当下等级低的工作。奥古斯丁表示,各个层级的员工都可以学习这种态度。 如果你当下从事的行业正在紧缩,而你新从事的工作行业则正在扩张,或者节省交通费用,或者获得更好的保险、退休金等福利待遇时,平级跳槽就是值得的。4. They Don#39;t Buy When They Can Rent。他们能租房就不买房。It#39;s the American dream to own a home, but don#39;t assume that everyone who can purchase a home does. The five-year rule (if you#39;re not going to live in a home for five years, don#39;t buy it) is back. Renting is more popular than ever, even among the wealthy. While it once made sense for people who could afford it to buy a home and flip it after two years, and the market has improved moderately this year, we#39;re hardly in a boom。拥有一套房子是美国梦的一部分,但并不是所有的人都有能力买房。五年规则(即如果你不会在这套房子里住五年以上,就不要把它买下来)卷土重来。即使是在富人圈子里,租房之风也空前盛行。虽然过去买得起房子的富人倾向于买下一幢房子,然后两年后转手,而且今年的房市稍有缓和,但当下绝不是经济繁荣时期。This article by economist Robert J. Shiller explains that attitudes toward renting are starting to change; 61 percent of Americans in a recent MacArthur Foundation survey agreed that, ;for the most part, renters can be just as successful as owners at achieving the American dream。;经济学家罗伯特·席勒解释说,人们对于租房的观念已经改变了;在麦克阿瑟基金最近作出的研究调查表明,61%的美国人同意,“在很大程度上,租房的人和买房的人实现美国梦的机会是同等的。”5. They Don#39;t Buy Without First Comparison Shopping。他们不会在货比三家之前付款。Chances are, if you#39;re ing this here, you#39;re likely also shopping online (80 percent of people who use the Internet have bought something by clicking). But wealthy shoppers are getting more shipping confirmation emails than others: According to a recent report by Martini Media and comScore, in the first quarter of this year, affluent shoppers were 47 percent more likely than buyers earning less than 0,000 annually to purchase something online。如果你正在读这篇文章,很有可能你会网购商品(80%的网上用户都曾经试过网购)但是那些富裕的买家可能网购的次数更加频繁:根据广告商Martini Media 和 comScore在今年上半年做的相关调查显示,年薪10万的人网购东西的可能性比其他人多出47%。Just as interestingly, wealthy online shoppers aren#39;t visiting luxury destinations as much as they#39;re visiting sites with mid-level pricing (think Macy#39;s). We know shopping online greatly lowers the likelihood of an impulse buy, but another major money-saving reason to buy from home is that you can easily do price comparisons. Plus, new apps such as Slice will even send you alerts when the price on an item you#39;ve purchased online drops so you can get a refund。有意思的是,他们去Net-a-Porter等奢饰品网站的次数少于去中等消费的网站的次数。我们都知道网购可以有效的抑制消费冲动,但是网购省钱还有另 一个重要理由,即你可以货比三家同时,“降价应用”这样的新网络应用可以在你已经购买的商品降价时向你发出通知,由此你可以获得一定退款。 /201310/260638

Miles Morland, a pioneering Africa investor, has spent more than two decades looking for deals in places where you cannot drink the tap water. If his experience is anything to go by, finding successful private equity opportunities has more to do with sharing a glass of the stronger stuff in African bars.二十多年来,投资非洲的先行者迈尔斯?莫兰(Miles Morland)一直在这片不能直接饮用自来水的地方寻找投资机会。按照他的经验,要想找到成功的私人股本投资机会,跟人在酒吧里一起喝杯烈酒比什么都管用。“In Africa there are hundreds of deals but you have to go and look for them. In the west, investment bankers bring you deals?.?.?.[but], in Africa, investment bankers are way down the food chain. You need to go and hang around the bars?.?.?.?to find the deals,” Mr Morland says.莫兰说:“非洲有不少投资机会,但你必须主动去找。在西方,投资家给你带来交易……(但)在非洲,投资家位于食物链下游。你得去泡吧……才能发现机会。”The case for investing in sub-Saharan Africa is clear. It has some of the fastest growing economies in the world, boosted by a nascent consumer class increasingly thirsty for everything from credit to cappuccinos. And it represents just 4 per cent of the emerging markets private equity asset class – emerging Asia takes the lion’s share at 63 per cent – suggesting there is plenty of room to grow.在撒哈拉以南非洲投资有着充分的理由。该地区正在兴起一个新的消费者阶层,从贷款到卡布基诺咖啡等许多事物都是他们渴望拥有的东西,在这种需求的推动下了,该地区一些经济体的增长速度在世界上名列前茅。然而,在新兴市场私人股本资产类别中,该地区仅占4%的份额,这说明它在这个领域有很大增长潜力。亚洲新兴市场则以63%的份额独占鳌头。But even as private equity groups raise ever larger Africa funds, there are persistent murmurs in the market that there simply are not the deals out there to match. Mr Morland disagrees. Development Partners International, the private equity group he co-founded, has invested the 0m fund it raised in 2008 in nine deals and is raising a new fund of the same size.然而,尽管私人股本集团在非洲募集的基金规模越来越大,市场却总是抱怨找不到匹配的投资机会。莫兰不同意这种观点。他与人联合创立的私人股本集团Development Partners International已经把2008年募得的5亿美元投资于9项交易,目前还在募集一只同等规模的新基金。Mr Morland, nevertheless, argues that the high rolling returns of the decade leading up to 2007 are a thing of the past. The “fool’s paradise” era when mobile phone companies grew faster in Africa than anywhere else in the world may have made some investors very rich, he says, but it is long gone.不过莫兰认为,1998至2007年间的高滚动收益率已成为往事。他表示,在“愚者天堂”的时代,非洲手机公司发展速度在全球领先,可能让一些投资者暴富,但这个时代早已一去不复返了。There is now a glut of new private equity investors plumping for Africa, with money from Brazil, the Middle East and the US entering the fray, jostling with bigger outfits such as Carlyle and KKR. Some of the newcomers are finding private equity investing in sub-Saharan Africa neither as promising nor as simple as sometimes billed.如今,新一批私人股本投资者奔赴非洲,来自巴西、中东和美国的资金加入战场,与凯雷(Carlyle)和KKR等规模较大的机构展开角逐。一些新加入的投资者发现,在撒哈拉以南非洲进行私人股本投资并不如有时标榜的那样前景大好、简单易行。In the 1990s, returns were hard to find and many good exits fell victim to currency volatility. In the following decade, investors might have earned stellar returns from mobile phone investments but these masked other fund failures.上世纪90年代缺乏回报率可观的投资机会,许多理想的投资退出渠道深受汇率波动影响。在之后的十年,投资者或许通过投资手机领域获得了不菲回报,但这掩盖了其他失败案例。“In the current 2007-17 cycle, making money will be harder. An internal rate of return of over 20 per cent will look good,” Mr Morland says. “It is a time when careful investors rather than cowboys will do well?.?.?.?The phone game is over.”“在2007至2017年周期,投资将更难获得收益。20%的内部回报率就是很好的表现了,”莫兰说,“在这个时期,表现出色的将是谨慎而非胆大的投资者……投资手机的时代已经结束了。”Despite the tougher environment, fundraisers are at pains to assemble what one investor calls “big ego” funds. Brazil’s BTG Pactual and others are reaching for the bn mark and seeking large deals that the continent’s fragmented market can rarely offer.尽管环境变得严峻,但募资机构仍在努力组建起一位投资者所称的“自负”(big ego)基金。巴西BTG Pactual等机构的基金直指10亿美元大关,它们寻找的大型项目一般来说不是非洲四分五裂的市场所能提供的。“When you start going up to writing equity cheques in excess of m, there aren’t so many [deals],” says Marlon Chigwende, Carlyle’s Africa co-head. His sub-Saharan Africa fund, which is expected to close above its 0m target in the third quarter, made its first investment last year by taking part in a 0m equity injection in ETG, a Tanzanian agri-commodities trader.“如果你准备进行超过7500万美元的股权投资,便很难找到投资的机会,”凯雷非洲联席主管马龙?奇格温德(Marlon Chigwende)表示。他在撒哈拉以南非洲的基金将在今年第三季度完成募资,总金额预计高于5亿美元目标。该基金去年首次投资,参与了对坦桑尼亚农业大宗商品交易商ETG的2.1亿美元股本注资。Nor is the competition just for deals. Another emerging headache is what one investor calls the “traffic jam” of fund managers seeking capital from investors. According to Preqin, the data company, 57 Africa-focused private equity funds are looking for .1bn, half of which are based in South Africa. While emerging market fundraising increased 72 per cent overall to bn in the past two years, fundraising for sub-Saharan Africa fell 3 per cent to .45bn last year – well down on its 2008 peak of .24bn.争夺的对象不仅仅是投资机会。另一问题正在浮现:基金管理公司追逐投资者的资本,因而出现了一名投资者所说的“拥堵”现象。按照数据公司Preqin的资料,目前有57家专注于非洲的私人股本投资基金寻求募集131亿美元资金,其中有一半基金位于南非。最近两年里,新兴市场的募资总额增长72%,达400亿美元,但去年撒哈拉以南非洲的募资额却下滑3%,仅为14.5亿美元,远低于2008年22.4亿美元的峰值。Ethos, a South African private equity company, which has been investing in the region for 25 years, closed one of the continent’s largest funds last year after securing 0m from investors, but it says fundraising “has not been easy”.南非私人股本公司Ethos在该地区投资已有25年。去年,Ethos向投资者募集了8亿美元,创设了非洲最大基金之一。但它表示,募资“并不容易”。Harith, another South African fund manager, had to rely on domestic money after foreign investors shied away.随着国外投资者纷纷退缩,另一家南非基金管理公司Harith只得依赖国内资金。Roger Leeds, founder of the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association, says the smarter money is targeting middle market deals worth less than m, which he believes have stronger growth prospects.新兴市场私人股本协会(Emerging Markets Private Equity Association)创始人罗杰?利兹(Roger Leeds)表示,更精明的资金正在瞄准5000万美元以下的中等规模投资机会。他认为这一领域的增长前景更为强劲。“The fund managers are happy to take investors’ money but it puts tremendous pressure on them to do bigger deals and they’re going to run out,” he says. “They’re all complaining they’re finding trouble finding deals and they’re competing with each other and driving up valuations.”“基金经理很乐意吸收投资者资金,但这会对他们产生巨大的压力,要求他们投资大的项目,而这种投资机会快要没了,”他说,“他们都在抱怨难以找到投资机会,他们互相竞争,将估值越抬越高。”In other words, as the African growth story attracts more and more funds, the going is getting tougher. 换言之,非洲的增长故事吸引了越来越多的资金,但现状却愈发严峻。That is one reason why resourceful and locally based managers matter so much more today than in the past.因此,有能力的当地基金经理发挥着比过去更重要的作用。“It’s no longer like venture capital where you take a shotgun approach and hopefully one of the pellets will hit the bullseye,” says veteran fund manager Michael Turner at Actis, the UK-based fund manager, which is raising money for a new global fund that will include Africa. “In today’s African private equity you can’t afford to have failures – it’s extremely hard to come back in a portfolio to deliver an overall good profit if you’ve had one or two wipeouts.”英国基金管理公司英联(Actis)正在为一囊括非洲的新全球性基金募资。该公司的资深基金经理迈克尔?特纳(Michael Turner)称:“现在私人股本投资跟风投不一样了,风投是漫天放,指望有一颗子弹能命中靶心。但当今的非洲私人股本领域容不得失败——如果有一两笔投资崩盘,一项投资组合就极难产生总体上很好的利润。”Sev Vettivetpillai has made dozens of Africa investments and exits as head of Aureos, which was bought by Abraaj Capital of the ed Arab Emirates last year. He says the days of flying in and out of Africa and managing investments from a distance are over.作为欧瑞斯(Aureos)的首席执行官,塞夫?维蒂维特皮莱(Sev Vettivetpillai)在非洲做过许多投资,也曾退出其中的一些投资。欧瑞斯去年被阿联酋的Abraaj Capital收购。他表示,不停往返非洲、远程管理投资的日子已经远去。“The growth story is very valid and real across Africa, but it still remains that if you pick the wrong partner and the wrong industry, you’re not likely to be benefiting from that growth story. Without the right management team you will lose your money. You won’t get out of that hole.”“非洲各地的增长故事真实可信,但如果选错合作伙伴和行业,你仍然难以从中受益。没有合适的管理团队,你便会赔钱,后果难以收拾。”Additional reporting by Andrew England and Anne-Sylvaine Chassany安德鲁?英格兰(Andrew England)和安妮-西尔万?沙萨尼(Anne-Sylvaine Chassany)补充报道 /201303/230953


  When designing an overall fitness program, most people focus mostly on two components: nutrition and exercise.While there is no denying that these factors will probably affect your shape more than any other, you should spend some time thinking about how you sleep. Getting a good night’s rest will help you recover from exercise faster, give you more energy for exercise during the day, and help you establish a hormone balance that helps you process food better. While for most of us, there is nothing that we can do to actually increase the number of hours we sleep, there are a few steps that you can take to enhance the quality of your sleep every night.Get on a Sleep Routine - Ideally, you should wake up at the same time and go to bed at the same time every night. This will help your body get accustomed to a routine, which can make your sleep at night a bit deeper. Now, this might mean that you have to forgo sleeping in long hours on those lazy Saturday mornings. But if you stick to a good schedule over time, you will probably discover that you have more energy and have an easier time falling asleep at night.Turn off the TV – Try to avoid watching television for about half an hour before you decide to hit the hay. Studies show that this extra stimulation can actually decrease your quality of sleep. When you stare directly at any bright light, like a television screen, it tells your brain that it is still light out. When you do something a bit more calming before you go to bed, like a book or listen to music, it can prepare your body for sleeping, just like warming up can prepare your body for exercise.Spend Time Making Your Bedroom Sleep Friendly - If you have to contend with a bright street light coming in through your bedroom window, there just is not any way that you are going to sleep well. Make sure that your blinds can block out any light that might come in, and that your room stays at a comfortable temperature. The next time you want to do a redesign of your bedroom and want to make it more sleep friendly, try choosing darker and earthy colors rather than bright primary colors.Don’t Schedule Your Exercise Right Before Sleep – Generally speaking, exercise improves the quality of your sleep. It physically exhausts your body so that your sleep in deeper and most restful. But if you do that exercise right before you go to bed, you stimulate your body to a degree that makes it difficult to go right to sleep. If night time is the only time you can exercise then you should of course do it anyways. But if you have an option, it’s better to get your workouts done in the morning.Personal trainer Christopher William McCombs runs Fitness Boot Camp in Orange County California.

  奥斯卡别样风景 “味”女星争艳红地毯This year at the Academy Awards the most of the attention got not the winners, but the actress being pregnant. There was even a nominee to who goes the baby.The pregnant celebrities at the Oscar were Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba and most noticeably Cate Blanchett who all brought baby bumps to the Academy Awards. And though Angelina Jolie was nowhere to be found, hers got a bigshout-outfrom host Jon Stewart, who noted the number of actresses who are expecting for several times."This is so exciting. The baby goes to ... Angelina Jolie," Jon Stewart said, opening a fake envelope as photos of Blanchett, Alba and Kidman flashed on the screen. "Angelina couldn't be with us tonight. It's tough to get 17 babysitters on Oscar night. I’ll accept this baby on her behalf."Nicole Kidman arrives at the show with Keith Urban with whom she is expecting her first child.Pregnant in purple Cate Blanchett,nominee for best actress for "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" and for best supporting actress for "I'm Not There", is closest to term for what will be a third child with playwright husband Andrew Upton. She presents the Oscar for best art direction during the 80th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood.Alba, with fiancee Cash Warren at her side, was serene in a deep purple strapless gown with purple feathers decorating her bodice. She cleared the air over recent reports that she's expecting twins! "That would be a surprise to me," Alba joked to Mark and Dayna on the Oscars red carpet."I'm not really terribly nervous," she said before the show. "Being pregnant is like taking a sedative."During one of his monologues, host Jon Stewart poked fun of pregnant Angelina Jolie.He said, “Earlier, I mentioned there were two very famous quite pregnant actresses here tonight. Actually, I was incorrect. I’ve become aware that there’s a third. Jessica Alba is pregnant, Cate Blanchett is pregnant and Nicole Kidman is pregnant.”Continuing his joke, Jon gave out an imaginary Oscar: “The baby goes to…. (drumroll) Angelina Jolie. ”Jolie and partner Brad Pitt are expecting their second child together. They are the parents of 1-year-old Shiloh, and three children adopted from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam. Their adopted children are Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; and Zahara, 3. 在今年的奥斯卡颁奖典礼上,最引人注目的不是那些获奖嘉宾,而是几位怀女星。甚至有一位提名者获得了宝宝大奖。亮相本届奥斯卡的“味”女星包括妮可#8226;基德曼、杰西卡#8226;阿尔芭,和最“突出”的凯特#8226;布兰切特,她们都“大腹便便”地出现在颁奖典礼现场。尽管颁奖礼上未见安吉莉娜#8226;茱丽的身影,但几次提及怀女星的主持人乔恩#8226;斯图尔特“颁给”她一个宝宝大奖。当布兰切特、阿尔芭和基德曼的照片闪现在大屏幕上时,乔恩#8226;斯图尔特一边打开一个假信封,一边说:“这太让人激动了。这个宝宝属于……安吉莉娜#8226;茱丽。不过茱丽今晚未能到场,因为在奥斯卡之夜找到17个保姆实在是太困难了。我就替她来领这个宝贝吧。”妮可#8226;基德曼与丈夫凯斯#8226;厄本一同现身红地毯,妮可正育着他们的第一个孩子。身着紫色礼的凯特#8226;布兰切特味十足,她凭借影片《伊丽莎白:黄金时代》和《我不在场》分别获得本届奥斯卡的最佳女主角和最佳女配角两项提名。布兰切特是几位怀女星中离预产期最近的一位,这是她与丈夫、剧作家安德鲁#8226;阿普顿的第三个孩子。此外,在好莱坞举行的第80届奥斯卡颁奖典礼上,布兰切特还登台颁发了“最佳艺术指导奖”。在未婚夫凯西#8226;华伦陪伴下的杰西卡#8226;阿尔巴身着深紫色羽毛饰抹胸长礼,显得宁静端庄。她澄清了最近有关她身怀双胞胎的消息。阿尔芭在红毯秀上与马克和黛娜开玩笑说:“如果能生对双胞胎,那可是个意外的惊喜。”在红毯秀开始前,她说:“我并没有那么紧张,其实怀的感觉就像打了镇静剂一样。”主持人乔恩#8226;斯图尔在他的一段说词中还拿准妈妈安吉莉娜#8226;茱丽开起了玩笑。他说:“刚才我提到,今晚这里有两位非常著名的怀女星。其实我错了。我发现还有第三位。除了杰西卡#8226;阿尔芭、凯特#8226;布兰切特,还有妮可#8226;基德曼。”乔恩继续开玩笑,他竟然颁出了一项假奥斯卡奖。“该宝宝属于……(击鼓声)安吉莉娜#8226;茱丽。”茱丽和布拉德#8226;皮特将迎来他们的第二个孩子。目前,除了已满周岁的生女夏洛伊外,茱丽和皮特还从柬埔寨、埃塞俄比亚和越南收养了三个孩子,他们是六岁的马德克斯,四岁的帕克斯,和三岁的扎哈拉。 /200803/30368

  US games developer makes quitting smoking child's play Smokers are about to get help kicking the tobacco habit: an interactive computer game that aims to "coach" cigarette users away from their addiction.Based on the successful "Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking" method which reportedly has helped more than 10 million smokers to stub out their cigarettes once and for all, the game, designed for Nintendo DS, will be developed by the Quebec bureau of California-headquartered Ubisoft.It is expected to go on sale in November.Ubisoft is the company that has brought the world games that pit players against an invasion of demonic rabbits or allow them to learn a foreign language using the Nintendo DS, with its interactive touch screen.In the smoking cessation game, players enter a brief personal smoking history and their tobacco habits and choose a personal coach to guide them through the process of quitting, according to a press release issued by Ubisoft.Fifteen mini-games help to "dispel the illusions about nicotine addiction" and players can track their progress in kicking the habit using the "Path to Freedom" meter.And even after that last cigarette butt has sullied the ashtray, "you can still play the game and measure the daily benefits you get from your new life without cigarettes," Ubisoft promises."The player experiences a truly interactive engagement with the game, through which he or she learns that it can actually be enjoyable to quit smoking," said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. 想戒烟的烟民们有“救星”了!他们可以借助一款互动式电脑游戏“指导”自己戒掉烟瘾。这款专为“任天堂DS”掌上游戏机设计的游戏将由总部位于加利福尼亚的育碧软件公司的魁北克分公司开发。这款游戏主要以“艾伦#8226;卡尔戒烟法”为基础,据说这种戒烟法已帮助一千多万烟民永久戒烟。“戒烟游戏”预计将于今年11月份上市。育碧软件公司曾推出过大战“疯狂兔”以及学外语游戏,玩家可通过任天堂游戏机的互动式触摸屏学习外语。据育碧软件公司发布的一份新闻通稿介绍,在这款戒烟游戏中,玩家只需输入简短的个人吸烟史以及他们的吸烟习惯,然后选择一个私人教练来指导他们戒烟。有15个“迷你游戏”可帮助戒烟者“驱除烟瘾”,而且玩家还可以使用“自由之路”计量器来跟踪自己的戒烟进展。育碧软件公司介绍说,戒烟后“你还可以继续玩这个游戏,看看不抽烟每天能给你带来多大好处。”育碧软件全球许可部副主管克里斯丁#8226;勒蒙说:“游戏玩家能与这个游戏进行真正的互动,他们能在这一过程中体会到其实戒烟也可以很愉快。” /200806/40721
