You are supposed to enjoy life, not be stressed out all the time. If you spend most of your days stressed about everything that going on at work, you are not at the right job.

"The longer people sit out of the job market, the harder it's going to be for them to re-enter," Frederickson says.
Even many of our international readers are probably aware that on July 4th of every year, America celebrates our independence from the British Empire. There are fireworks, multiple flavors of pie, and every variation of the colors red, white, and blue.
For as long as the show has been running — ever since its debut in 2007 — we have been, it seems, suffering from what Hadley Freeman in The Guardian newspaper dubbed “madmenalaria.”
Here are the 12 Most Patriotic (American) Movies of All Time.
Olympus Has Fallen, White House Down, Act of Valor, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Clear and Present Danger, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Glory, Pearl Harbor, Unbroken, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima
12 The Patriot
Roland Emmerich’s historical drama about the American Revolutionary War is perhaps one of the most obvious choices for this list. Though its history is far from accurate, causing numerous controversies in its portrayal of both British and American sides of the war, the film’s emphasis on patriotism is inspiring.
Mel Gibson stars as the fictitious Benjamin Martin, a man who joins the war to protect his family. He fights alongside his son Gabriel (Heath Ledger) against the charismatic and violent Colonel Tavington (Jason Isaacs).
The Patriot is a film that illustrates the best of American patriotism; more of an ideal than an actual truth. Martin fights for the freedom and well-being of his family, representing the everyman American patriot Emmerich implies we should all aspire to be.
11 American Sniper
Starring Bradley Cooper as Kyle, the film tells the true account of Kyle’s several tours in Iraq, where he became the most lethal sniper in American history. Throughout his four tours, Kyle eliminated 255 enemy combatants. Kyle received many accolades for his service, but was left emotionally scarred by the experience, his family life crumbling.
Eastwood’s depiction of Kyle’s life took some liberties, expanding certain characters for dramatic effect, but also needlessly glossing over more controversial aspects of Kyle’s high kill count. American Sniper is patriotic to a fault, depicting Kyle as an American hero in a very similar way to Sergeant York. Though there are moments when viewers are left to question the moral ambiguity of Kyle’s service and the effects of war, for the vast majority of the film, Eastwood's stance on American patriotism remains ever forward facing.
10 10. A Few Good Men
With an all-star cast (Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, and Keifer Sutherland) and a screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin, A Few Good Men is certainly one of the most critically acclaimed films on this list.
Days after her death, Ross’ mother, Alicia Jesquith, told reporters she needed answers for the sudden death of her daughter, described by friends and family as a vibrant, ambitious young girl who lit up the room.
中国商务部(Ministry of Commerce)表示，今年1-10月中国对外投资总计863亿美元。
And the best gig for 2015? That would be an actuary, the people who specialize in financial risk.
This can involve everything from not responding to e-mails to not being aware of how you come across in an e-mail. If you have a bad habit of taking too long to check or respond to e-mails, you could miss important meetings or deadlines, cause delays or confusion, or come off as unprofessional.
And while many Bond girls fade into acting obscurity or fall into second-class flicks after making a 007 splash, Marlohe and her agents at ICM Partners are making sure the actress surrounds herself with top-flight talent as she uses the Bond movie as a launching pad for an international career.
A Few Good Men is far more morally complicated than the other additions to this list, a story of the corruption of American nationalism. In the end, the movie is about standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, and as the flag waves in the background, this theme rings true. As long as there are Americans who fight for justice, justice will be served.
9 Team America: World Police
To be clear, this film is less a celebration of the patriotism and “world policing” of the United States, and much more of a parody mocking some of the more questionable decisions of our country. Team America also satirizes the big-budget action movies that dominate this very list, with outrageous action scenes choreographed entirely with marionette puppets.
It comes as no surprise that this film parodies American government and global efforts; directors and writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the creators of the lampooning series, South Park. Many would argue that they top themselves with Team America. Its hilarious musical numbers and pitch-perfect mockery of action films like Pearl Harbor and The Day After Tomorrow offer the greatest send up to the patriotic action drama we have today.
So despite it not truly representing “patriotism,” Team America is still a great film to watch on the 4th, if you enjoy a little self-deprecating humor.
8 Captain America: First Avenger
Though its subsequent sequels seem to address a growing disillusionment with America’s governmental policies, the first film of Marvel Studios Captain America trilogy is a superb film to watch this 4th of July.
Chris Evans plays Steve Rogers, a young man whose dream is to fight for the little guy. At first, he is that little guy himself, but after a quick dose of Super Soldier serum, Rogers becomes Captain America. He parades around the country, inspiring leagues of young men to volunteer to fight in World War II against the Germans.
D'Aloisio himself strives to maintain a bubble of normalcy. He dates the same girl he did before the whirlwind hit. And though he's stopped attending school-he's too busy to sit in class while overseeing Summly's development-he still gets his work from his teachers and meets with them regularly. He cherishes the fact that his circle of friends knows little of his life as a budding industrialist. When I met him, he was about to head to Greece for a weeklong vacation with a pack of high school pals.
From his Betsy Ross colored costume to his physics-defying shield, Cap is truly the most patriotic superhero (ignoring a recent comic book reveal). So while Civil War might not be the most shiny example of the pro-America blockbuster, First Avenger has more than enough flag-waving to spare.
7 Patriot Games
There is no modern American writer more patriotic than Tom Clancy. His stories have been adapted into numerous games and films that all embody Clancy’s idea of the American hero. This of course often involves one lone man taking on an army of international terrorists or a cell of covert Russian spies.
Patriot Games (1992) is technically a sequel to The Hunt for Red October (1990), both based on Clancy novels. We say 'technically' because every major actor was re-cast, with Harrison Ford stepping in to play Jack Ryan after Alec Baldwin. The only actor to hold over was James Earl Jones as Admiral Greer.
The fundamentals of the Chinese economy remain sound, the capital adequacy ratio and provision coverage of commercial bans remain high, and we have many financial tools and instruments that can be used. We have the confidence, the ability, and the means to forestall systemic risks.
It uses its QQ chat application as a means to drive users to its online games and websites. Analysts say a similar model could work well for WeChat, though they also say that WeChat's Circles function adds a social networking component to the service that could eventually attract advertisers.
Will the Democrats take back the majority in the midterm election in the US House of Representatives
Patriot Games is about the triumph of the singular American hero over the efforts of dastardly forces that threaten his own and his family’s freedom. It’s incredibly patriotic; it’s right in the title.
6 Sergeant York
The third film on this list to join the National Film Registry, Sergeant York also landed star Gary Cooper the award for Best Actor at the 1942 Academy Awards.
Fun fact: Cooper was originally set to play Mr. Deeds in Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington, the original title of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, planned to be a sequel to Cooper’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.
Sergeant York is based on the true story of Alvin York, one of the most decorated soldiers of World War I. The screenplay is largely adapted from York’s diary, and he was largely involved in the production.
UK schools account for more than a third of all graduates from the top 50 pre-experience programmes and not only attracted nearly half of all female students but also almost half of all international students. Indeed, 94 per cent of students enrolled in a UK MiF pre-experience programme in 2014 were from overseas. About 85 per cent of these students were from outside the European Economic Area, including 55 per cent of the overall number from mainland China.
Kate Winslet is another Brit who’s opted for the loo for her best actress Academy Award, which she was awarded for her complex role as a concentration camp guard in the 2008 adaptation of Bernhard Schlink’s novel, The Reader.

明星们的私家飞机刚停稳，“老爹身材”一词便在互联网上走红。男性微胖的身材成为潮流，荧幕上不少这样的例子。法新社（AFP）Deborah Cole（黛博拉?科尔）写道：“杰拉尔?德帕迪约（Gerard Depardieu）在《爱之谷》中的形象便是“大汗淋漓、气喘吁吁地打着赤膊”， 华金?菲尼克斯 （Joaquin Phoenix）在 伍迪?艾伦（Woody Allen）的新片《非理性的人》（Irrational Man）中也露出了他那胖胖的肚子。科林?法瑞尔（Colin Farrell）出席《龙虾》（The Lobster）的首映红毯时，看起来如往常一般衣冠楚楚，然而在剧中他却大腹便便。为了给荒诞主义者欧格斯?兰斯莫斯（Yorgos Lanthimos）的黑色喜剧中的孤独主角增肥，法瑞尔大量进食高热量食品，其中包括融化了的冰淇淋。他告诉《好莱坞报道》（Hollywood Reporter），“在早晨10点享用2个芝士汉堡、薯条和可乐可不那么有趣，”他补充道，“不过我喜欢芝士汉堡。”
York, both in real life and the film, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery. Sergeant York is a touching story of courage and American bravery and rightfully earns a spot on this list.
5 Air Force One
Which showed month-on-month prices had fallen – albeit marginally – in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xiamen and Zhengzhou during the second half of the month.
One of the highest-paid Bollywood actresses, Deepika Padukone hold the third position in the list of 10 most beautiful women of 2015. She is considered a sex symbol and style icon in India. Padukone ranks high on various listings of the most attractive Indian women. She is cited by her figure, height, smile, and eyes as her distinctive physical features. She is an active celebrity endorser for several brands and products, including Tissot, Sony Cyber-shot, Nescafe, Vogue eyewear, Maybelline and Pepsi, among others.

Ford is excellent as President James Marshall, and surrounded by a talented supporting cast including Gary Oldman as Ivan Korshunov, Glenn Close as the Vice President, and William H. Macy as a military aide.
Air Force One is about “’merica!” as a film can get, one where the president battles the terrorists threatening the safety of his country with his own two hands. Upon release the film was reportedly well-received by the real president, Bill Clinton.
4 Top Gun
Just last year, the United States Library of Congress inducted Top Gun into the National Film Registry for its cultural significance. So for what director Tony Scott’s most well-known film lacks for in rewatchability today, it makes up for by being a touchstone of 1980s American cinema.
And a few stopped to change a tire for an elderly French couple.
The film is notable for getting the actual US Navy to participate in the filming process, from editing and toning down language in the script, to assisting on the filming of many flight sequences. Though Top Gun airs on the more adolescent, it is nonetheless a charming movie with beautifully shot aerial dog-fights. It quickly became the highest grossing movie of 1986, and is still beloved to this day.
3 Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
For a very different slice of American patriotism (read: replace action with humble politics) look no further. Frank Capra’s masterpiece starring the affable Jimmy Stewart is a comedy about how one man can change a country for the better with ideas instead of gunfire.
Like Top Gun, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington belongs in the National Film Registry due to its historical significance. Capra’s film received 11 Academy Award nominations in 1940.
There is still tremendous untapped potential in China-Russia economic and trade ties and the two economies are highly complementary. The goals set for the two-way trade can be achieved.

节目31 京剧《迎来春色换人间》，于魁智 托马斯（孔子学院学员）
The years have given contemporary critics perspective, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is often considered one of Capra’s greatest works and Stewart’s finest performances. The “whistle-blower” film may not display the most trustworthy politicians, but its message is clear: the common man can triumph and make a change for good. And really, that is what America is all about.
2 Rocky IV
《嘻哈帝国》(Empire)，Fox，周三播出。这部最新的嘻哈乐肥皂剧的导演是电影人李·丹尼尔斯(Lee Daniels)，他曾执导《珍爱》(Precious)和《白宫管家》(Lee Daniels’ The Butler)）。片中泰伦斯·霍华德(Terrence Howard)饰演一个身患致命疾病的说唱乐大明星。
Rocky IV was the most successful film in the franchise, remaining the highest grossing sports movie of all time for 24 years after its release. It tells the story of Rocky Balboa’s (Sylvester Stallone) battle with Ivan Drago, the best boxer in Russia. There are obvious parallels in their rivalry to the Cold War and the ideals of the American hero versus Soviet power.
Honestly if you want to laugh your way through a Netflix original movie, please just watch The Incredible Jessica James because it's a delightful romantic comedy that blows everything else out of the water.

Along with being a superb sports film, Rocky IV is also a perfect portrait of what it means to be an average American.
1 Independence Day
Quite simply, this film is the reason lists like this exist. With a long-awaited sequel finally arriving on June 24th, 2016, Independence Day is the pinnacle of patriotism.
If Top Gun is a time capsule of the 80s, ID4 is the epitome of 1990s Hollywood. Roland Emmerich (making his second appearance on this list) loads the movie with enough explosions and action to make Michael Bay giddy with glee. The cast includes Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and as the POTUS himself, Bill Pullman.
When aliens attack every major city across the globe, the American government must band together and use every resource necessary to defeat their insurmountable foe. ID4 celebrates the many different types of families and people that reside in our country and proudly emphasizes a very pro-defense and patriotic message.
Pullman’s speech towards the climax of the film is perhaps ID4’s greatest moment. And it wouldn’t be a patriotic film without ending with literal fireworks: the exploding alien spacecraft. Top honors for serving our country go to ID4. Here’s hoping the sequel can live up to it.
