"Show me your wife and I will tell you what kind of a husband she has" nghĩa là gì?

'Show me your wife and I will tell you what kind of a husband she has'
~ ngạn ngữ Catalonia

= cho tôi thấy vợ của bạn và tôi sẽ cho bạn biết cô ấy có người chồng như thế nào...

Tà áo em bay bay trong chiều vàng. 
Nhẹ gót dịu êm thướt tha nhẹ nhàng. 
Em đi ngập ngừng trong nắng. 
Nóng má hồng nóng cả tim anh...

The further influence of China on Hollywood

Abstract

In various cultural and behavioral respects, emerging market consumers differ significantly from their counterparts of developed markets. They may thus derive consumption utility from different aspects of product meaning and functionality. Based on this premise, we investigate whether the economic rise of emerging markets may have begun to impact the typical “one-size-fits-all” design of many international product categories. Focusing on Hollywood films, and exploiting a recent relaxation of China’s foreign film importation policy, we provide evidence suggesting that these impacts may exist and be non-negligible. In particular, we show that the Chinese society’s aesthetic (óc thẩm mỹ, khiếu thẩm mỹ) preference for lighter skin can be linked to the more frequent casting of pale-skinned stars in films targeting the Chinese market. Implications for the design of international products are drawn.

That is from a new paper by Manuel Hermosilla, Fernanda Gutierrez-Navratil, and Juan Prieto-Rodriguez.
