提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
HW
He worked as a substitute teacher, or in short jobs, in various towns. Einstein's father, had to apply on behalf of Einstein for academic positions. And he wrote to a very famous professor and asked him whether he could use Einstein as a research assistant. But there were no positions available.

His father passes away, thinking that young Albert is a total distress to the family. In 1902, the depressed and despondent young Albert moves to Bern, Switzerland's capital, and begins a career far from science.

One of his friends arranges for Einstein to get a job as a lowly patent clerk in the Swiss Patent Office.

In this office on the third floor, Einstein spends six days a week reviewing applications submitted by all kinds of inventors to the Swiss government.

Giving a patent, you have all these information and he had to strip it down to the accents and that whole interest skills as a physicist. He would very quickly dash off all the patents that he had to analyse.

He didn't find the work very strangeous. It was not so intellectual demanding.

And it would give him ample time to contemplate the universe.

He never would have been very good at the university, kissing up to a senior professor. He was much better of a steward in the patent office, kind of daydreaming about what it is like to ride alongside a light beam.

From that job, he would launch a revolution which would change world history.

Einstein's idle daydreams will profoundly change the way the universe is understood. In 1905, in what's been called his miracle year, he publishes in his spare time four visionary papers. The first of which answers the age-old question: what is light?

The photoelectric effect, this paper, written by this total unknown, show that light comes as a particle called the photon.

We use that in television. We use that in lasers.

In another paper, the 26-year-old Einstein posits something we now take for granted--the existence of atom.
