The days of blokes sitting on the sofa watching football with a can of lager in their hand are over, here comes a new breed of men known as alta-male.
They are men who value personal realization over more conventional measures of success, and search for ways to improve themselves.
They reject the model of 'a-bit-of-sport-and-loads-of-telly' parenthood their own fathers favoured. The Alta-male would even be open to changing his career if it meant he could spend more time with his family. The goal is to engineer a rewarding mixture of family and self.
文中的alta-male就是“阿尔塔男”的意思，其中alta意为“阿尔塔”，male用作名词，意为“男子；雄性动物”，如：The male voice is deeper than the female.（男性的嗓音比女性的低沉。）
第二段中的conventional用作形容词，意为“传统的；惯例的；常规的”，如：I can never get a girl like that with conventional methods.（我用寻常套路永远也追不到这样的女孩。）
He was penetrated with a conventional idea.
[ 参考答案：他深受传统思想的影响。 ]
