Put away your competitive heart when running.

Unless you are interested in becoming a professional runner, for most amateur runners, running is not a competition in the arena. You have to figure out what you are running for.

I think some runners blindly follow the trend when they see other people’s achievements, so they can’t resist a competitive heart. All I can think about is the amount of running and pace. In the end, even if I ran out of good grades, I also ran out of injuries. What’s the point?

For amateur runners, the word "stability" is the most important, and jogging is the truth. Be a little timid, it doesn’t matter! Run slowly, run less, and leave if you can’t run. It’s really nothing. It is even more important to achieve the "three noes": no running when you are sick, no running after drinking, and no running after staying up late.What do you think? Let’s talk in the comments section.

Sunshine beach is hidden! The death of a 7-year-old girl in Florida warns of the risk of "quicksand trap"

  Sunshine beach has hidden dangers! Recently, a tragedy occurred in Florida, USA: a 7-year-old girl accidentally fell into a bunker and was buried alive while "digging sand" on the beach. Experts reminded that similar accidents are not uncommon in the United States, and parents should be especially alert to the "quicksand trap" when bringing their baby.

  ABC reported on the 22nd that the tragedy happened on the beach in Lauderdale-on-the-Sea, a resort town in Florida, on the afternoon of the 20th local time. At that time, Si Long Mattingly, who was only 7 years old, and his 9-year-old brother dug up a pit nearly 1.5 meters deep. Soon, this unstable "fortification" suddenly collapsed and the brother and sister were buried in the bunker. Because my brother is tall, the sand just doesn’t reach his chest, while my short sister is swallowed up by the yellow sand.

  According to reports, the local resident population is only about 6,000, and there are no professional lifeguards on the beach. Although there were enthusiastic passers-by to rescue after the incident, it was too inefficient to dig sand only by hands and buckets, and the surrounding fine sand continued to flow into the bunker. By the time the rescuers dug out the little girl with a shovel, she had already lost her pulse and was declared dead shortly after being sent to the hospital. The report said that the parents of the brothers and sisters were nearby at the time of the incident.

  The death of "quicksand trap" is not a case. Medical records show that three to five minors die every year in the United States, including some "older children". In addition to the beach, it is also risky for children to play with sand in parks or their own homes. Last year, a 17-year-old young man in North Carolina was buried in sand. In 2022, there were also dangers in national parks in Utah and beaches in New Jersey. Two victims were 13 years old and the other was 18 years old.

  Experts say that leisure places like the seaside are easy for people to relax their safety awareness. Many people are keen on digging sandpits and building castles, but they have no idea about the weight and danger of sand. Experts suggest that the depth of the bunker should not exceed the height of the knee, and try not to be in the pit, because the structure of the bunker is very unstable and it is easy to collapse instantly, causing danger. For tourists who are exhausted, they must be backfilled before leaving, because even if it is only a barrel deep, it may be dangerous. (Liu Yuran)

The nebula award announced the shortlist. What science fiction novels were nominated this year?

On February 20th, local time, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) announced the finalists of the 54th nebula awards. The award ceremony will be held on May 18th, local time, and the Warner Marriott Center in California will produce the winners of this year’s nebula awards.
In addition to awards for novels, novelettes, novelettes and short stories, this year’s Xingyun Awards also set up three fiction awards, including the best game writing award, the "bradbury Award" for the best drama presentation, and the "Andre Norton Award" for the best youth science fiction and fantasy works. Among them, the Best Game Writing Award is the first award added this year.
The annual nebula award was first presented in 1965, in recognition of science fiction and fantasy novels published or published in the United States the previous year. The nebula award is one of the most important awards in science fiction and fantasy novels. It is often compared with Hugo Award. Together, they are called "Double Awards", which is called the Nobel Prize in science fiction. Works that win both the nebula award and Hugo award are often regarded as stepping into the palace of classic works.
The nebula award is a spiral nebula made of transparent synthetic resin, hence the name of this award.
China writer Liu Cixin was nominated for the nebula award in 2015. The nominated work is the first part of the English version of Three-body trilogy, which was translated by Chinese-American Liu Yukun, and the name of the English version was translated into The Three Body Problem. In August 2015, at the 73rd World Science Fiction Conference, Liu Cixin’s "Three-body" won the Hugo Award for novels, which was the first time that China people won the highest honor in science fiction literature. In addition, Liu Cixin has won the "Global Chinese Science Fiction Galactic Award" sponsored by the World Chinese Science Fiction Association for many times.
