The Journey Starts!

By Daiyar Chiinggisi

We were warmly welcomed after landing on Chiinggis Khan International Airport at 9pm (local time) on Thursday. As we came out of the airport, before fully breathing the fresh air of Ulaanbaatur, Mongol friends of Tsahim Urutuu was there with bouquets of flower. The crew of NTV (of Mongolia) flashed the light asking “Welcome to Mongolia, the Hazara Mongols, How do you feel?”. “Exciting and overwhelmed to be in our ancestral land, feeling myself as part of a history-in-making” the first sentence I had for the camera. After a short interview outside the airport lounge, the Mongol friends took us to our dormitory at the National University of Mongolia, downtown Ulaanbaatur.

The next day we went to Sukhbataar Square, the Zero Point of Mongolia, the historic place near the Parliament of Mongolia. We paid a visit to the giant statue of the Great Khan, in front of the National Assembly.

It was incredible. Everyone was interested to talk to us. The news of our arrival in Mongolia had gone on-air at night. Our faces were known. On the way while walking to the University for our first class of Mongolian Language, a young boy ran towards us saying “are you the Hazara students”. “Yes”, I said. His exciting face expression seemed as if he has found anything precious. He introduced himself saying he had watched us on TV and was keen to see us. “Please your email address?” he asked and hoped to meet us soon.

First day of the Mongolian class at the University was memorable. Every teacher knew us “the Hazara Mongols”. Our class fellows are mostly Koreans, Chinese and Westerners. While learning the Mongolian alphabets on the first day, the sounds seemed familiar to us. It was normal for me when the teacher said, “your pronunciation is good”. The basic similarities of Hazaragi and Mongolia make it so.

On Saturday, second day of our arrival, we went to the countryside. It’s said the real beauty of Mongolia is in the countryside. Taking about an hour of drive, we reached the resort of Mongolian Airlines. As we moved out of Ulaanbaatur, the green mountains and beautiful landscapes were just amazing.

That day will remain as one of the happiest ones in my life. We had the most delicious Mongol food in a traditional “ger”, followed by a drink party and traditional Mongol song by a local singer. I was asked to sing a Hazaragi song. I had no choice but the “Mughul Dukhter (Mongol Girl)…Biya Nazuk Mughul e Ma”.

Outing to the countryside.

Outing to the countryside.

In the party, we met a Mongol linguist. He interviewed us on Hazaragi. He could not believe it, when knew that back-lower shoulder is called “Dalu” in Hazaragi, which is the exact same in Mongolian. He noted down many words which were the exact same in Hazaragi and Mongolian. Even more was interesting when he asked us some technical questions. For instance, to make plural some nouns he had asked us. He said the grammar rule of pluralizing in Hazaragi is similar with Mongolian. He invited us to come to his linguistic class at the Education University of Mongolia next week and talk to students researching Mongolian.

The weather is fine nowadays, sunny and cool. Generally it’s harshly cold in winter in Mongolia. The temperature goes to -35. Unlike many other foreigners (though I don’t like to use this word for us in Mongolia, because we are treated as domestic Mongols), we are okay with food here. Mongols take heavy meal, mostly meat all the time!

I had not expected at all such a warm attitude from our Mongol ethnic fellows. I feel proud to be in our ancestral land.

5 Ways to Improve YOUR English without even Trying! for people who speak English as a second language

Learning a second language can be a very stressful and arduous task if you let it. Somehow, the words you learn in the books don’t seem to apply very well to real life situations. Those small and seemingly un-important elements the show a person to be in command of not only the language, but the culture of the people who speak it cannot be adequately expressed by words on paper.

So, how do you learn these little secrets of mastering the ability to articulate yourself in another language?

Here are 5 proven techniques that will help you improve your English without even trying, if you are learning to speak English as a second language. Do they really work? Yes. I’ve tried them myself as I’ve had opportunity to live somewhere where English wasn’t the primary language. I found it to be a fun, exciting, and painless way to learn both the language and the culture. The culture is simply learning the way the natives express their own words. The genuine accent, facial expressions, hand gestures, sighs, moans, groans, laughter, smirks, and other things that go along with everyday conversation.

Regardless of how extensive or not your vocabulary is, if you master the ability to “sound” like you know the language and can speak it, people will be more than generous to assist you.

1. Watch Movies!

Watching movies is always a fun thing to do. In order to get the most out of your movie watching experience, if your vocabulary is limited, watch a movie in English that you are very familiar with in your own language so you always know what’s going on. Try not to translate as you go because you lose blocks of conversation this way. Instead, watch the picture and listen. Hear all the words, but determine what’s going on by the pictures you see and the words you’re hearing that you already know. Believe it or not, other words will sink in too, and so will the accent and everything else that went with what you saw and heard.

As your vocabulary grows, expand your movie selections to other movies you’d like to see but are only available in English. Try to be able to see the film more than once if possible.

According to the location and type of film you intend to view, you will be able to experience different accents, and other cultural expressions of the English language. Pick and choose the things that you think will suit you best. If it doesn’t work out, pick and try something else! Have fun with yourself and your efforts.

2. Watch Soap Operas

The place where extreme expression and limited vocabulary meet! This is such a fascinating way to learn a foreign language. Every accessory that goes with the expression of a word is demonstrated on a soap opera. “Outrage” expressed with a word, facial expression or two, and perhaps even a subsequent face slap, all of that being understandable in any language. “Love”, another universal subject, or violence, good versus evil can all be discerned quickly and easily on a soap opera. Plus, soap operas are naturally designed to allow anyone just tuning in to pick up the story quickly. The characters are easily loveable and deliciously “hate-able” so you turn to it again and again to see what’s going on, and not only improve your English each time, but reinforce what you’ve already learned.

3. Read the Comics/Funny Papers

Very non-stressful! Pictures with words, or words with pictures, however you want to look at it, it’s a great way to learn! For each thought presented there are words that match a picture, and vice versa. It doesn’t matter if you read comic books, or the comics in the Sunday newspaper, read whatever will make you laugh and cause you to enjoy learning at the same time.

4. Read Children’s books

If you know any little kids between the ages of 5-8, try reading one of their books to them. Usually little kids know their favorite books by heart, so if you stumble a little, they’ll be able to help you.

If you enjoy this method of improving your English, and you find yourself to be pretty good at it, then try reading a few Dr. Seuss books. The rhyming will challenge you, but once you master it, your pronunciation of English, and your delivery will have been considerably refined and improved.

5. Take a service job like waiter or waitress; bartender, or sales person.

This type of job can be done if you have a decent vocabulary of verbs, and know how to say “I, we, she, he, they”, etc. The only other thing necessary is a working vocabulary of things relevant to your specific tasks and goals.

For example, as a breakfast waitress, you want to be able to ask if they want their eggs, “scrambled or fried”, if they want “more coffee”, if everything is “alright”, do they want “anything else”, and the total of their bill in their own language!

If you sell real estate, you’ll want to incorporate words like “mortgage, loan, co-sign, 30 year fixed”, etc.

If you sell shoes, you need words like “how does that feel”, are they “too tight, too loose, to short in the toe, to big”, etc.

The longer you work at your job, the more your working vocabulary will improve.

6. Learn these two sentences and you’ll be set for life . . . seriously!

“How do you say (blank)”, in English (Spanish, French, etc.), and “What is that called?” (Point if you have to, and smile too). Smiling is a universal language. Once I learned how to ask these two questions, I was on my way to being conversant in the language of my choice!

I could use my limited vocabulary to ask the question and then when I got my answer I would repeat it a few times to make sure I was saying it correctly, and “BAM” I had a new vocabulary word. And, because I asked my question to the best of my ability in the native tongue, the natives realized my sincere desire to learn, and helped me!

7. What happens if you make a mistake?

Nothing. The world won’t come to an end, and you haven’t embarrassed yourself to the point where you can’t show your face again. Just apologize if that’s what’s called for, or laugh at yourself, make the correction, and count it as a learning experience.

Once I was in a restaurant and I wanted to ask the waiter for a “to go” box, however, I was speaking to my kids in English, and trying to think of what I wanted to ask for in Spanish, and I promptly and incorrectly asked him for a “house to go”. He looked at me kind of funny, but he was very courteous, and didn’t laugh until I laughed.

I’ve committed other language faux pas as well over the years, all of which have been a learning experience, and if given enough time, will become a humorous story as well.

برخورداري از يك ويژگي ژنتيكي بسيار نادر، پسربچه‌ سه ساله

يك پسر بچه سه ساله به دليل برخورداري از يك صفت ژنتيكي بسيار نادر از چنان قدرتي برخوردار شده كه عنوان «سوپر پسر» را به خود اختصاص داده است.

لیام در هنگام تولد دچار مشکلات زیادی از نظر پزشکی بود . او دارای یک سوراخ کوچک در دیواره فلب خود به همراه اگزما بر روی بدن و بزگی کلیه ها و عدم تحمل به لاکتوز بود . این کودک دارای شکمی سخت بود و در طی روز بارها دچار استفراغ می گردید.

لیام به سرعت بهبود یافت اما نکته ای که والدین او را نگران می کرد اشتهای زیاد این کودک بود . پدرش می گوید او واقعا همیشه گرسنه است .  در واقع هر ساعت احتیاج به تغذیه دارد . مادرش می گوید لیام شش برابر دیگران غذا می خورد !

با گذشت زمان اشتهای کودک نه تنها کاهش نیافت بلکه بیشتر هم شد و نکته مهم و جالب این بود که تمام مواد غذایی در بدن این کودک به ماهیچه تبدیل می شد . در واقع تنها نقطه ای از بدن لیام که دارای چربی است گونه های او است . پزشکان می گویند  متابوليسم بدن این کودک   بسیار بالا است .

لیام در نوزده ماهگی می توانست بر روی دستهای خود شنا برود . و عضلات شکمی او آنچنان تنومند بود که می توانست باعث حسادت هر ورزشکار زیبایی اندام گردد.

پدرش می گوید : ” شما وقتى چنین قدرتی داشته باشید می توانید دنيا را دستخوش تغییر کنید .

دكتر لارسون می گوید : ”  بله این اتفاق شدنی است  براى اينكه او خيلى قوى است شما وقتى كه آن نيروى باورنكردنى را در يك بچه می بینید  آنگاه برای آینده چيزهاى خيلى بيشتر را از او توقع خواهید داشت .  “اين توانايي ژنتيكي خاص به اين پسر بچه كوچك  امكان مي‌دهد كه قدرت عضلاني فوق‌العاده‌اي داشته باشد، به طوري كه مي‌تواند به راحتي اثاثيه و لوازم سنگين را جابه‌جا كند.

محققان علت اين قدرت فوق‌العاده و استثنايي را يك حالت ژنتيكي نادر اعلام كرده‌اند. آنها مي‌گويند ليام احتمالا به حالتي موسوم به «هايپرتراپي ماهيچه‌اي مربوط به ميد ستاتين» دچار است.

در اين وضعيت بدن فرد مقدار بسيار اندكي چربي دارد و در عوض رشته‌هاي ماهيچه‌يي در بدن وي بسيار بزرگ مي‌شوند و اين وضعيت قدرت واقعي و فوق‌العاده‌اي به فرد مي‌دهد.                                                                  اولين بار اين پديده در يك پسر بچه خردسال آلماني در سال ۲۰۰۰ مشاهده شد. ليما ماهيچه‌هاي بسيار قدرتمندي دارد، اما ظاهر وي درست شبيه به يك كودك طبيعي است .

در واقع جثه او كمي از سن خود كوچكتر، اما قدرتش بسيار بيشتر است.

ليام ناچار است به دليل متابوليسم سريع در بدنش دائم غذا بخورد، يعني حداقل بايد در روز شش وعده غذا بخورد تا دچار كمبود كالري نشود.

ليام به دليل قدرت زياد اگر از بلندي بيافتد، آسيبي نمي‌بيند.
پژوهشگران معتقدند با بررسي و شبيه سازي اين حالت مي‌تواند بسياري از بيماريها را معالجه كنند.

پدر ليام می گوید آرزو دارم که رو زی او براى تیم محبوب من یعنی تیم دانشگاه ميشيگان تيم فوتبال بازى كند.

یک مرد جوان ۲۸ ساله اهل کشور روسیه که با احتمال سرطان ریه مورد جرای قرار گرفت از درون بدنش یک گیاه صنوبر که در حال رشد بود خارج گردید

به نقل از  ریانووستی ،  اين موضوع زماني مشخص شد كه «آرتيوم سيروركين» ۲۸ ساله و اهل منطقه اورال تحت عمل جراحي قرار گرفت.

این مرد روس با علائمی همچون خلط خونی سرفه مزمن آزار دهنده به پزشک خود مراجعه نمود .

پزشکان بعد معاینه و انجام آزمایشات تشخیصی احتمال ابتلا به یک سرطان بدخیم مهاجم  ریه را برای او مطرح کردند و  او با این احتمال مورد جراحی قرار گرفت .

پزشکان در هنگام جراحی شوکه شدند زیرا که به جای یک توده سرطانی درون ریه این فرد با یک جوانه ۵ سانتیمتیری از گیاه صنوبر روبرو شدند .

پزشک جراح و تیم همراه او متعلق به منطقه اورال  (Urals)کشور روسیه بوده است .

جراحان و پزشكان منطقه اورال روسيه، طي يك عمل جراحي موفق شدند يك گياه از نوع صنوبر را كه داخل ريه يك مرد رشد كرده بود، از ريه وي بيرون بياورند.

اين مرد جوان به دليل داشتن درد فراوان در ناحيه سينه‌ام، به پزشك مراجعه كرده و آن‌ها با گرفتن عكس از ريه‌هايم متوجه يك توده در آن شدند، علاوه بر اين من خون بالا مي‌آوردم.

دکتر ولاديمير كاماچوف  ( پزشك  جراح اين پسر جوان )  خاطر نشان كرد : من سه بار عكس مورد نظر را بررسي و هر سه دفعه نيز اين توده را مشاهده ‌كردم. پس از آن ، اين مرد جوان را تحت عمل قرار داده و يك گياه كه بعدا مشخص شد از نوع صنوبر است، را از داخل ريه اين مرد بيرون آوردم.

وي گفت: به احتمال زياد دانه صنوبر هنگام تنفس، داخل بيني و سپس وارد ريه اين مرد شده و در داخل محيط مرطوب ريه رشد كرده است .

این گیاه صنوبر همراه با رشد خود موجب تخریب بافت ریه و سیستم مویرگی ظریف اطراف آن شده بود .

دکتر كاماچوف می گوید : گرچه تشخیص اشتباه ما موجب از دست رفتن یک  ریه این مرد شده است اما واقعا در هنگام بررسی غیر قابل تشخیص بود که این یک توده سرطانی نیست .

براستی آیا پزشکی در جهان پیدا می شود که با توجه به علائم بالینی و دیدن عکس های ریه یک فرد تشخیص رشد یک صنوبر را در محیط ریه برای او بدهد ؟!
