AVRIL LAVIGNE
Her new single
"Girlfriend" is a hit. She’s a newlywed (having married Sum 41 frontman
Deryck Whibley, 27, last year). So for Lavigne, 22, her "new" image is
just the latest, natural next step. "Being a girl is awesome. There’s
so much – bags, shoes, makeup, accessories," she says. "I love putting
lotion on – I’m obsessed with lavender. It’s a lot of fun, and I think
the older you get, the more you get into it."

ZIYI ZHANG
Although her last role in Memoirs of a Geisha
required hours of heavy makeup, Zhang, 28, prefers a more minimal
approach: "I like a natural and clean look. Having makeup on, I cannot
recognize myself. It changes my feelings in my heart."

DANICA PATRICK
In 2005 the 5’2"
IndyCar Rookie of the Year, 25, led the Indianapolis 500 for 19 laps –
a first for a female driver. And there’s buzz about an even better
showing at Indy this month. Still, racing can get bumpy. "You sweat so
much," Patrick says. "We have a helmet and this head sock; the sun’s on
you. The skin takes a beating. I do MicroDermabrasion every month. And
facials – they hurt so good."

TERRENCE HOWARD
The Oscar nominee, 38, describes himself as "extra-medium maintenance."
Sweat equity:
He’s up at 4:30 doing 500 push-ups, 1,000 sit-ups and a three-mile run before taking his three kids to school.
Sacrificed for art:
Shoulder-length hair.
Man pampering:
Regular manicures plus spa weekends "with a number of massages. That’s when I allow myself to be high-maintenance."

HEATHER LOCKLEAR
"Maybe 40 is the
new 30," says TV’s consummate California girl, 45. After splitting from
husband Richie Sambora (their divorce was just finalized), the mom of
daughter Ava, 9, just keeps getting hotter. So – the secret? Run, sun
(strictly the fake variety) and fun. "I don’t say, ‘No more bread or
pasta.’ I just don’t have five platefuls. I’ve always been a red-meat
eater. I try to eat a little less and be aware."

BEYONCÉ
To play the lead Dreamgirls,
Knowles, 25, subjected herself to bushy eyebrows and frumpy suits. The
result: Total transformation ("Very not cute," she told reporters) –
and a taste of what life might have been like if she hadn’t been born
beautiful. "To be honest," she said, "I feel people would have
acknowledged my talent a lot more."

第四名

JAMES BLUNT photo | James Blunt
JAMES BLUNT
Before his earnest
falsetto topped the charts with "You’re Beautiful," Blunt, 33, was a
captain in the British army, even escorting the Queen. What he brings on the road: "A bar of soap." Why so basic? "In the army
you carry as little as possible. Most touring bands do the same." Beauty icon: "My father’s in the army. He doesn’t facial himself either."

第三名

EVA LONGORIA
Longoria, 32, packed heat as a secret service agent in The Sentinel – and she shoots from the hip. She isn’t vain: "Makeup artists always want to fill in the scar on my left eyebrow, but I never let them." She’s a trendsetter: "She’s really changed the way women on the red carpet look at color," says stylist Robert Verdi. She’s practical: "I go to work in my pj’s. I just have to get undressed again."

第二名

JESSICA ALBA
Here’s how Alba, 26, keeps that fresh vibe. Always wears: "Moisturizer." Barely wears: "Powder. I have kind of a round nose, and too much powder makes it look rounder." Washes hair: "Most days, unfortunately. I don’t think it’s good for your hair." Smells like: "Gardenia and candy."

ANGELINA JOLIE
"She looks the
most beautiful when she’s in the field – natural, no makeup, nothing,"
says Wyclef Jean of the actress-activist, 31. Indeed, her beauty needs
are decidedly practical: a dusting of powder, a few strokes of mascara,
a dab of Vaseline on her world-famous lips and – voilà! – she’s ready
to meet the president of Pakistan. "She wants to make a difference,"
says U.N. representative Guebre-Christos. "She does it with a lot of
simplicity."

Breaking news.

The insane son of bitch gunman was identified by NBC News as a 23-year-old permanent legal resident from Korea. Such a shame for all the Asian.

The Elements of Statistical Learning

with 5 comments

  Trevor HastieRobert TibshiraniJerome Friedman合著的The Elements of Statistical Learning是一本经典的著作,是统计学习算法领域一本核心的书籍。第一次听说这本书大约是在一年以前。当时我去旁听Prof.Hüllermeier的进阶机器学习。课堂上,Prof.Hüllermeier毫不吝啬其赞美之词,向我们极力推荐这本书。

  可惜在那段时间,我从来没有真正去读这本书。一是当时自己的兴趣不在机器学习上,二是水平有限,完全看不懂当时觉得反正将来没可能和机器学习沾边,因此也就没有因错过一本好书而觉得可惜。生活中的许多事情很奇妙,我选修了所有的数据库课程,最后却没有跟随Prof.Saake去研究数据库,而是渐渐的陷进机器学习里。

  有心思、有时间去完完整整读一本书是一件非常奢侈的事情。我没有法子一点点啃这本书,只是把她当作手册用:平时有什么问题就随手翻翻。说起来好笑,前些阵子,因为害怕读不懂,再加上原版的价格不菲,我还让家里人从国内买了一本中文版寄过来。宇宙无敌超级霹雳失败的举动。中文版的翻译极其糟糕,暴敛天物。看过原版再看中文版,让人大失所望。具备高中英语水平的人,我都建议他读原版。而当我发现这本书的译者……

  也罢,中国有句俗话叫做“闷声发大财”。

0.5的自动铅笔芯

with 2 comments

  来德国之后第一次去买自动铅笔芯。Marburg tegut,1.99欧。回到Office,打开一看,10根。一阵狂晕。20好几的人民币买回来十根0.5的自动铅笔芯。

  照片是用手机拍的,不怎么清楚。By the way,图片背景里用来挡门的椅子,175欧一把,是我拿来挡门的东西里最贵的。学校真TM有钱。不知道下次能不能给我报销买笔芯的费用-_-…
