呼啸山庄 Chapter4 相关名著:查泰莱夫人的情人 Article/200809/47354Boy, this is the worst weed I’ve ever had, Wesley thought, even though it smelled great. He’d rolled two joints, smoked them both, and still didn’t feel high. He’d heard about some super weed that gets people so high that they think they’re straight. Maybe this was super weed. Naw, he thought. This is just crap. His best buddy had ripped him off! There was only one thing to do: call the police.Wesley told the police his problem. They said they would be right over. He went to the front door and unlocked it. Slowly, he printed Buster’s phone number and address on a cigarette paper. He put it into the big baggie of grass. He wondered if his call was going to make TV news. Or maybe the front page of the newspaper: “Good Citizen Turns in Drug Dealer.” Wow! The city might make him an honorary deputy sheriff. He lit another joint—maybe the third one would be the charm ...He heard the car doors closing and the footsteps approaching. All right, he thought. He wondered if they had brought a television crew with them. Maybe he’d make the 11 o’clock news. The police were very polite. They thanked him for Buster’s phone number and address. Then they arrested Wesley. “What for?” he protested.“For possessing more than 28 grams of pot,” an officer replied.“But this isn’t pot—it’s more ‘not’ than ‘pot.’ Why do you think I called you—I got ripped off!”“Well, we’ll see about that after the lab analyzes it. If you’re both lucky, you did get ripped off.” Article/201104/133480

Saturday morning meant one thing for Susan—doing the laundry. She hated doing the laundry. Unenthusiastically, she took the pillow cases off all the pillows. Then she removed the fitted sheet from the mattress. She took the towel off the towel bar in the bathroom.She grabbed a couple of dirty dish towels out of the kitchen, and looked all around her apartment for anything else that needed washing.In the corner of her living room, a can of coins sat on top of the file cabinet. She fished out seven quarters. She opened the cabinet under her kitchen sink and grabbed a plastic bottle of liquid detergent.Finally, she set her electronic timer for 35 minutes. The timer would remind her that the washing was done, and that it was time to go back downstairs and put the clothes into the dryer for 40 minutes. Without the timer, Susan would completely forget to check her clothes.Susan carried the laundry basket downstairs. How happy she would be when her laundry was done for this week. As she approached the laundry room, she heard a familiar sound. The sound was the washer washing and the dryer drying. One of her neighbors had got there before her. Muttering, Susan took her basket back upstairs. Article/201103/129935

We started travelling again, across the mountains, and by daylight came to wild, open moors, covered with purple heather.Because anyone on the hills around us could easily see us when we stood up, we had to walk or run on our hands and feet, like animals It was another hot summer day, and my back achcd badly after a few hours. I wanted a rest and a drink of water, but when we stopped, we saw the redcoats of soldiers on one of the hills, and we had to go on.我们又开始旅行了,翻山越岭,到天亮时来到满是紫色石南的、空旷的荒野。因为我们站起来时周围小山上的人能够很容易地看见我们,我们只能像动物一样手脚并用地爬或者跑。这又是一个炎热的夏日,几个小时后我的背痛得厉害。我需要休息,需要喝点水;但当我们停下来时,我们看见其中的一座小山上有士兵们穿的红制,我们又得走下去。We walked or ran all day and all night. People who talk of tiredness do not know what the word really means, I did not know who I was or where I was going, and I did not care. I thought that every step would be my last, and I hoped that death would come soon.Alan drove me onwards, and I felt that I hated him, but I was too afraid of him to stop and rest.整天整夜我们都在走或者跑。说累的人们其实不理解这个词的真实含义。我不知道我是谁或我往哪儿去,我也不在乎。我想每一步都可能是我能走的最后一步,而且我希望死神能够很快来临。艾伦催着我往前走,我感到我恨他,但是我太害怕他,以致不敢停下来休息。When daylight returned, we were stupid with tiredness,and had become careless. Suddenly, three or four wild-looking men jumped out of the heather, and took us prisoner.I was not afraid, only happy to stop running for a moment. But Alan spoke to them in Gaelic.天又亮时,我们累得都迟钝了,都变得麻本了。忽然,三四个看似粗野的人从石南丛中跳出来,把我们当俘虏抓起来。我不害怕,只高兴能停止跑一会儿。但是艾伦用盖尔语对他们说话。lsquo;These are Cluny Macpherson#39;s men,rsquo; he said quietly to me.lsquo;Ye remember him, the head of the Macpherson clan?They fought well against the English in the Forty-Five.After that, he didn#39;t go to France, like the other clan chiefs.No,he#39;s been hiding here ever since, and the soldiers have never managed to find him. His clansmen bring him what he needs.rsquo;;这些是克兰尼;麦克弗森的人。;他低声对我说,;你记得他,麦克弗森家族的头领吗?在1745年政变中他们英勇抗击英格兰军队。那以后,他像其他部族领袖一样没有去法国。对,那以后他一直躲在这儿,士兵们也从来没有发现他。他家族的人给他提供他所需要的。;We were taken to a cave, well hidden by trees and rocks,and Cluny Macpherson himself came forward to welcome us,like a king in his palace. He seemed to live well in his cave,and he offered us an excellent meal, prepared by his cook. But I was too tired to eat, so I lay down at once and slept. In fact,although I did not know it, I was seriously ill, and could not get up for two days.我们被带到一个被树木和岩石遮掩得很好的山洞,克兰尼;麦克弗森像一个国王在他自己的王国里一样上前欢迎我们。看起来他在洞穴里过得很好,他给我们提供了一顿由他的厨师准备的佳肴。但是我太累了,吃不下,于是我立即躺下来睡觉。事实上,虽然我不知道,但是我是得了重病,两天都不能起床。I woke up once,in a kind of fog, to find Cluny and Alan playing cards, and a second time, to hear Alan asking to borrow my money. I was too sick and sleepy to refuse, and gave him my purse.一次我醒来,如坠雾里,发现克兰尼和艾伦在打牌;又有一次,听见艾伦向我借钱。我病得太厉害,又太困,不能够拒绝,把我的钱包给了他。But when I woke up again, on the third day,I felt much better, although not very strong. I noticed that Alan was looking very ashamed, and I realized at once what had hap pened.但在第三天,当我又醒过来时,我感到好多了,虽然还不太强壮。我注意到艾伦看起来很羞愧,我马上意识到发生了什么。lsquo;David,rsquo; he said miserably,lsquo;I#39;ve lost all our money at cards, yours as well as mine.rsquo;;戴维,;他悲惨地说道,;我玩牌输掉了我们所有的钱,你的和我的。;lsquo;No,no,ye haven#39;t lost it!cried Cluny.lsquo;Of course I#39;ll give your money back. It was just a game. I wouldn#39;t keep your money. Here!rsquo; And he pulled gold coins out of his pocket.;没有,没有,你没有输钱!;克兰尼叫道。;我当然要退你钱。只是玩玩而已。我不会要你的钱。给!;他从口袋里掏出金币。I did not know if it was right to accept the money or not,but we needed it, so I thanked Cluny and put the coins in my purse. But I was very angry with Alan, and as we left Cluny#39;s cave and continued our journey, I refused to speak to him.我不知道接受钱是对还是不对,但我们需要它,于是我谢过克兰尼并把金币放到我钱包里。但是我对艾伦很生气,我们离开克兰尼的山洞继续旅行时我拒绝和他说话。At first Alan tried hard to talk to me. He said that he was sorry, and that he loved me like a brother. He was worried about my health, and offered me a hand when we crossed a river or climbed a hill.But after two or three days,when he realized that I was still angry with him, he too became angry,and laughed at me when I fell, or seemed tired.最初艾伦竭力试着对我说话。他说他很抱歉,说他像兄弟一样地爱我。他很担心我的健康,我们过河或者爬山时他主动伸手要帮我一把。两三天后,当他意识到我仍对他生气时,他也变得生气了,我跌倒或显得疲倦时他嘲笑我。 Article/201203/176089

  I have a strange hobby. It’s visiting factories. I’m really interested to see how things work and how they are made. I’ve learnt so many things on my factory visits. Factories are amazing. They are like mini cities. The thing that surprises me most is how everything works together. Everyone knows exactly what to do and when to do it. Even the robots. Car factories are cool, but very noisy. A car assembly line is like a giant ballet dance with everything moving perfectly together. It’s quite easy to visit factories. All you have to do is go to their home page and see if they have visiting times, or write to them. The best factories to visit are ones that produce food and drinks. You always get free stuff. Unfortunately you don’t get a free car at car factories. Article/201104/132587

  ;Of course,; she said. She dug through a precariously stacked pile of documents on her desk till she found the ones she was looking for. ;I have your schedule right here, and a map of the school.; She brought several sheets to the counter to show roe.  ;当然,;她说道,她在自己办公桌上一堆早就有所准备的文件中翻了半天,才翻到了要找的那几份,;我这就把你的课程表给你,还有一张校园的地图。;她把好几张纸拿到台子上给我看。She went through my classes for me, highlighting the best route to each on the map, and gave me a slip to have each teacher sign, which I was to bring back at the end of the day. She smiled at me and hoped, like Charlie, that I would like it here in Forks. I smiled back as convincingly as I could.  她帮我仔细检查了一下我的课程,在校园地图上把上每一节课的最佳路线都一一标了出来,然后给了我一张纸片让每个老师签字,要我在放学前再把签过字的纸片交回来。就像查理一样,她冲我笑了笑并希望我喜欢福克斯。我也冲她笑了笑,而且尽了最大的努力,让她相信我的微笑不是装出来的。When I went back out to my truck, other students were starting to arrive.I drove around the school, following the line of traffic. I was glad to see that most of the cars were older like mine, nothing flashy. At home I#39;d lived in one of the few lower-income neighborhoods that were included in the Paradise Valley District. It was a common thing to see a new Mercedes or Porsche in the student lot. The nicest car here was a shiny Volvo, and it stood out. Still, I cut the engine as soon as I was in a spot, so that the thunderous volume wouldn#39;t draw attention to me.  我出来朝车边走去时,别的学生开始到校了。我开车沿交通线绕学校转了一圈。我高兴地看到大多数的车都跟我的车一样破,一点儿不浮华。在凤凰城,我住在为数不多的几个低收入的居民区中的一个居民区里,而这些居民区都隶属于天堂谷行政区管辖。在学生停车区,看见一辆新梅塞德斯或者保时捷是很寻常的事情。这里最好的车是一辆亮闪闪的沃尔沃,鹤立鸡群。不过,一到停车位我还是马上就把火熄了,省得它那雷鸣般的声音把注意力吸引到我身上来。I looked at the map in the truck, trying to memorize it now; hopefully I wouldn#39;t have to walk around with it stuck in front of my nose all day. I stuffed everything in my bag, slung the strap over my shoulder, and sucked in a huge breath. I can do this, I lied to myself feebly. No one was going to bite me. I finally exhaled and stepped out of the truck.  我在车里看了看校园地图,想当时在车上就能把它记住;这样的话,就有希望不需要一天到晚走到哪里,都得把它贴在鼻子前面了。我把所有的东西塞进了书包,将书包带子挎在了肩上,吸了一大口气。我可以搞定,我底气不足地对自己撒了个谎,没有人会把我吃了。最后,我深呼一口气从车里走了出来。I kept my face pulled back into my hood as I walked to the sidewalk,crowded with teenagers. My plain black jacket didn#39;t stand out, I noticed with relief.  我往人行道那边走去的时候,脸一直缩在帽兜里面。人行道上挤满了十几岁的孩子。我朴素的黑夹克并不显眼,降低了我受到关注的可能。 Article/201203/173680Written by - George Grow (THEME)VOICE ONE:I’m Doug Johnson.VOICE TWO:Barbara McClintock And I’m Barbara Klein with PEOPLE IN AMERICA in VOA Special English. Today, we tell about Barbara McClintock. She was one of the most important scientists of the twentieth century. She made important discoveries about genes and chromosomes. (THEME)VOICE ONE:Barbara McClintock was born in nineteen-oh-two in Hartford, Connecticut. Barbara was the third of four children. Her family moved to the Brooklyn area of New York City in nineteen-oh-eight. Barbara was an active child with interests in sports and music. She also developed an interest in science. She studied science at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Barbara was among a small number of undergraduate students to receive training in genetics in nineteen twenty-one. Years later, she noted that few college students wanted to study genetics.VOICE TWO:In the early nineteen-twenties, genetics had not received widesp acceptance as a subject. Only twenty years had passed since scientists re-discovered the theories of heredity. Gregor Mendel proposed these ideas after completing a series of experiments with plants. His experiments helped scientists better understand how genes operate. They showed how genetic qualities are passed to living things from their ancestors. VOICE ONE:Barbara McClintock decided to study botany, the scientific study of plants, at Cornell University. She completed her undergraduate studies in nineteen twenty-three. McClintock decided to continue her education at Cornell. She completed a master’s degree in nineteen twenty-five. Two years later, she finished all her requirements for a doctorate degree.In the late nineteen-twenties, McClintock joined several other students in a group that studied genetics. The students included a future winner of the Nobel Prize, George Beadle. Another was Marcus Rhoades. Years later, he would become a leading expert in genetics. McClintock said both men recognized the importance of exploring the connection between genes and chromosomes. McClintock stayed at Cornell after she completed her education. She taught students botany. She also supervised genetic studies of the corn plant, or maize. She studied chromosomes, which are lines of genes. She made several discoveries about genes and chromosomes. VOICE TWO:The nineteen thirties were not a good time to be a young scientist in the ed States. The country was in the middle of the great economic depression. Millions of Americans were unemployed. Male scientists were offered jobs. But female geneticists were not much in demand. McClintock received two offers to travel and carry out research projects. The first came from America’s National Research Council. She worked at several places, including Cornell and the University of Missouri in Columbia. Later, a group called the Guggenheim Foundation provided financial aid for her to study in Germany. McClintock went to Berlin, but returned to Cornell the following year. Her skills and work were widely praised. But she still was unable to find a permanent job.(MUSIC)VOICE ONE:For years, scientists had been using x-rays to study genetic material in plants and other organisms. They found that x-rays caused genes to change. Sometimes, the x-rays physically broke the chromosome. Genetic researchers looked for changes in the organism. Then they used this information to produce a map linking the changes to a single area of the chromosome.McClintock became interested in the way genes reacted to unusual events. She formed a successful working relationship with Lewis Stadler of the University of Missouri. He had demonstrated the effects of x-rays on corn. Stadler sent maize treated with radiation to McClintock. She identified unusual areas she called ring chromosomes. She believed they were chromosomes broken by radiation. The broken ends sometimes joined together and formed a circle, or ring. This led her to believe that a structure at the end of the chromosome prevents chromosomes from changing. She called this structure the telomere. VOICE TWO:Stadler got the University of Missouri to offer a permanent position to McClintock in nineteen thirty-six. She became an assistant professor. During her time at the university, she worked with plants treated with x-rays. She also discovered plants with chromosomes that broke without help of radiation. She described this activity as the breakage-fusion-bridge cycle. University officials and professors recognized the importance of McClintock’s research. Yet she believed that she was not able to make progress in her position. So she decided to leave the University of Missouri. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:An old friend from Cornell, Marcus Rhoades, invited McClincock to spend the summer of nineteen forty-one working at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. It is a research center on Long Island, near New York City. McClintock started in a temporary job with the genetics department. A short time later, she accepted a permanent position with the laboratory. This gave her the freedom to continue her research without having to teach or repeatedly ask for financial aid. At Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, McClintock continued her work with the breakage-fusion-bridge cycle. She found that some corn plant genes acted in an unusual way. They appeared to move from cell to cell during development of corn particles, or kernels. She discovered that the genes moved on and between chromosomes. VOICE TWO:McClintock confirmed her discovery and extended her observations for six years. The changes could not be explained by any known theory. So, she developed her own theory. She believed the moveable genes were not genes at all, but genetic controllers or controlling elements. She said they influenced the actions of other genes. During this period, McClintock was elected to the National Academy of Sciences. She was the third woman ever so honored. She also was named president of the Genetics Society of America.VOICE ONE:In nineteen fifty-one, McClintock was asked to present her findings at a conference held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Her report described the movement of genes from one part of a chromosome to another. She used the presentation to discuss her ideas of controlling elements in genes. The other scientists reacted to her ideas with a mixture of criticism and silence. Most scientists believed that genes did not move. Few people seemed to accept her findings. Yet others argued that her experiments were complex and difficult to explain, even to other scientists. They said she would not have been invited to speak unless conference organizers understood some of the importance of her work. (MUSIC)VOICE TWO:For years, many scientists dismissed McClintock’s findings. During this period, she continued doing her own work and reaching her own findings. Beginning in the late nineteen-fifties, she went to Central and South America to study different kinds of maize plants. She examined the development of agricultural maize by native peoples. She also assisted younger scientists and students in genetics.Her work at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory was recognized in nineteen seventy. She was given the American government’s highest science award – the National Medal of Science.VOICE ONE:By the nineteen-seventies, newly developed methods of molecular biology confirmed what McClintock had learned through observation. Her discoveries have had an effect on everything from genetic engineering to cancer research. McClintock won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in nineteen eighty-three for her discovery of the ability of genes to change positions on chromosomes. She was the first American woman to win an unshared Nobel Prize. Barbara McClintock remained at Cold Spring Harbor for the rest of her life. She died in nineteen ninety-two. She was ninety years old.

  29Hezekiah was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother's name was Abijah daughter of Zechariah. 2He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord , just as his father David had done. 3In the first month of the first year of his reign, he opened the doors of the temple of the Lord and repaired them. 4He brought in the priests and the Levites, assembled them in the square on the east side 5and said: "Listen to me, Levites! Consecrate yourselves now and consecrate the temple of the Lord , the God of your fathers. Remove all defilement from the sanctuary. 6Our fathers were unfaithful; they did evil in the eyes of the Lord our God and forsook him. They turned their faces away from the Lord 's dwelling place and turned their backs on him. 7They also shut the doors of the portico and put out the lamps. They did not burn incense or present any burnt offerings at the sanctuary to the God of Israel. 8Therefore, the anger of the Lord has fallen on Judah and Jerusalem; he has made them an object of d and horror and scorn, as you can see with your own eyes. 9This is why our fathers have fallen by the sword and why our sons and daughters and our wives are in captivity. 10Now I intend to make a covenant with the Lord , the God of Israel, so that his fierce anger will turn away from us. 11My sons, do not be negligent now, for the Lord has chosen you to stand before him and serve him, to minister before him and to burn incense." 12Then these Levites set to work: from the Kohathites, Mahath son of Amasai and Joel son of Azariah; from the Merarites, Kish son of Abdi and Azariah son of Jehallelel; from the Gershonites, Joah son of Zimmah and Eden son of Joah; 13from the descendants of Elizaphan, Shimri and Jeiel; from the descendants of Asaph, Zechariah and Mattaniah; 14from the descendants of Heman, Jehiel and Shimei; from the descendants of Jeduthun, Shemaiah and Uzziel. 15When they had assembled their brothers and consecrated themselves, they went in to purify the temple of the Lord , as the king had ordered, following the word of the Lord . 16The priests went into the sanctuary of the Lord to purify it. They brought out to the courtyard of the Lord 's temple everything unclean that they found in the temple of the Lord . The Levites took it and carried it out to the Kidron Valley. 17They began the consecration on the first day of the first month, and by the eighth day of the month they reached the portico of the Lord . For eight more days they consecrated the temple of the Lord itself, finishing on the sixteenth day of the first month. 18Then they went in to King Hezekiah and reported: "We have purified the entire temple of the Lord , the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the table for setting out the consecrated b, with all its articles. 19We have prepared and consecrated all the articles that King Ahaz removed in his unfaithfulness while he was king. They are now in front of the Lord 's altar." 20Early the next morning King Hezekiah gathered the city officials together and went up to the temple of the Lord . 21They brought seven bulls, seven rams, seven male lambs and seven male goats as a sin offering for the kingdom, for the sanctuary and for Judah. The king commanded the priests, the descendants of Aaron, to offer these on the altar of the Lord . 22So they slaughtered the bulls, and the priests took the blood and sprinkled it on the altar; next they slaughtered the rams and sprinkled their blood on the altar; then they slaughtered the lambs and sprinkled their blood on the altar. 23The goats for the sin offering were brought before the king and the assembly, and they laid their hands on them. 24The priests then slaughtered the goats and presented their blood on the altar for a sin offering to atone for all Israel, because the king had ordered the burnt offering and the sin offering for all Israel. 25He stationed the Levites in the temple of the Lord with cymbals, harps and lyres in the way prescribed by David and Gad the king's seer and Nathan the prophet; this was commanded by the Lord through his prophets. 26So the Levites stood y with David's instruments, and the priests with their trumpets. 27Hezekiah gave the order to sacrifice the burnt offering on the altar. As the offering began, singing to the Lord began also, accompanied by trumpets and the instruments of David king of Israel. 28The whole assembly bowed in worship, while the singers sang and the trumpeters played. All this continued until the sacrifice of the burnt offering was completed. 29When the offerings were finished, the king and everyone present with him knelt down and worshiped. 30King Hezekiah and his officials ordered the Levites to praise the Lord with the words of David and of Asaph the seer. So they sang praises with gladness and bowed their heads and worshiped. 31Then Hezekiah said, "You have now dedicated yourselves to the Lord . Come and bring sacrifices and thank offerings to the temple of the Lord ." So the assembly brought sacrifices and thank offerings, and all whose hearts were willing brought burnt offerings. 32The number of burnt offerings the assembly brought was seventy bulls, a hundred rams and two hundred male lambs-all of them for burnt offerings to the Lord . 33The animals consecrated as sacrifices amounted to six hundred bulls and three thousand sheep and goats. 34The priests, however, were too few to skin all the burnt offerings; so their kinsmen the Levites helped them until the task was finished and until other priests had been consecrated, for the Levites had been more conscientious in consecrating themselves than the priests had been. 35There were burnt offerings in abundance, together with the fat of the fellowship offerings and the drink offerings that accompanied the burnt offerings. So the service of the temple of the Lord was reestablished. 36Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced at what God had brought about for his people, because it was done so quickly. Article/200901/61346We Profile Five Special People Who Died This YearWritten by Katherine Gypson and Caty Weaver (THEME)VOICE ONE:I’m Faith Lapidus.VOICE TWO:And I’m Steve Ember with People in America in VOA Special English. Today we tell about five special people who died during the past year. We start with Johnny Carson. For millions of Americans, Johnny Carson was the last voice they heard before going to sleep at night. (THEME) VOICE ONE:That was the music of the popular late night television show called “The Tonight Show.” Johnny Carson became host of the show in nineteen sixty-two. Johnny Carson Carson was almost thirty-seven years old when he took over the show. But he had been entertaining people since he was a child. He was born in Corning, Iowa in nineteen twenty-five.As a young boy, Johnny discovered he was good at telling stories. He also became interested in magic. He performed his first public magic show when he was fourteen. He called himself “The Great Carsoni.”Johnny Carson began his career in television in his twenties. He worked at local stations in Nebraska. Several years later, he moved to Los Angeles, California. He was the host on several comedy shows during the nineteen fifties. VOICE TWO:But it was “The Tonight Show” that made Johnny Carson famous for thirty years. He became the most popular star of American television. He was called “the king of late night.” Critics said Americans from all parts of the country liked him and felt they knew him. Carson seemed to be more like the people who watched his show than the actors, singers and other famous people who appeared on it. He did not take his fame seriously. For example, when asked how he became a “star,” he answered: “I started in a gaseous state and I cooled.”Carson’s special skill was his sense of humor. Audiences laughed at the jokes he made at the beginning of his show. However, sometimes they laughed even harder at the jokes that failed. He was the most powerful performer on television. Many comedians and singers became successful after appearing on “The Tonight Show.”Johnny Carson retired in nineteen ninety-two. He received many awards during his life. Carson died in January at the age of seventy-nine. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:“The Last of the Mohicans” is a famous nineteenth century historical novel. It ends with the death of the last Native American from the Mohegan tribe. Gladys Tantaquidgeon, the most honored member of the tribe, let people know that the book was just a story. In fact, her tribe has about one thousand seven hundred members. No one did more to protect the traditions and beliefs of the Mohegans than Tantaquidgeon. She was born in eighteen ninety-nine in Uncasville, Connecticut. Gladys was educated in traditional Native American ways. The oldest members of the tribe taught the young girl herbal medicine, crafts and stories about Mohegan history. Tantaquidgeon went on to study anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. She wrote books about Native American medicine and traditional beliefs. VOICE TWO:In nineteen thirty-one she started the Tantaquidgeon Indian Museum in Connecticut. Today, it is the oldest museum in the country operated by Native Americans. Many schoolchildren have learned about Native American history at the museum.Gladys Tantaquidgeon collected the tribal documents that helped the Mohegan regain official recognition from the federal government in nineteen ninety-four. Tantaquidgeon also served as the tribe’s medicine woman. She was only the third woman to do so since eighteen fifty-nine. Gladys Tantaquidgeon died in November at the age of one hundred six. Leaders from many Native American tribes said she was a great woman who carried out her goal of making sure that the history and culture of the Mohegan tribe survived.(MUSIC) VOICE ONE:John H. Johnson was born in nineteen eighteen to a poor family in the state of Arkansas. He later owned the world’s largest black-owned publishing company. And he was one of the richest African-American businessmen in the country. He died in March at the age of eighty-seven. People of all races mourned the man who had given African-Americans a voice by creating several very successful magazines. John H. Johnson John Johnson’s mother believed that her son would grow up to be a great man. She moved the family to Chicago, Illinois so he could get a better education. Johnson attended the University of Chicago and went to work at an insurance company. VOICE TWO:In nineteen forty-two when he was just twenty-four years old, Johnson had an idea for a new kind of magazine, the Negro Digest. It would give African-Americans news about political, business and social issues. He used a five hundred dollar loan to start the magazine and worked hard to make it popular. Johnson believed that African-Americans needed to see positive images of themselves in the American media. He later started two other successful magazines, Ebony and Jet. Johnson published books, owned radio stations and other companies. He also operated an organization that raised millions of dollars to help African-American students attend college. John Johnson believed that his life was proof that hard work could overcome almost any problem and open almost any door. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:That was “Missus Robinson” a song about a character from the popular nineteen sixty-seven movie “The Graduate.” Anne Bancroft played Missus Robinson, a woman who starts a sexual relationship with a young man. She often said she was surprised that people remembered that one role when she had acted in more than fifty movies and plays. Her Italian immigrant parents named her Anna Maria Louisa Italiano when she was born in the Bronx, New York in nineteen thirty-one. From an early age, Anna knew that she wanted to become an actress. She studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. VOICE TWO:Anne Bancroft went to Hollywood, California in nineteen fifty. The head of a movie studio changed her last name to Bancroft. She starred in a series of low budget movies. She also appeared in plays on Broadway in New York City.

  这个兔子洞开始像走廊,笔直地向前,后来就突然向下了,爱丽丝还没有来得及站住,就掉进了—个深井里。 But when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge. In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again. The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.

  The Rough,Tough World Of Rugby 敢冲敢抢橄榄球To the uninitiated, rugby is a game in which a bunch of powerfully built men throw themselves at one another in pursuit of an oval ball. In fact, this ancestor of modern American and Canadian football can seem more like an organized brawl than a highly technical sport with a complex set of rules. Apart from its sometimes chaotic demeanor, rugby is also unusual among modern sports in that its origins can be traced back to a single, seminal event. In 1823, during a soccer game at the prestigious Rugby School in central England, one of the players impulsively picked up the ball and ran with it. The way soccer was played in those days, William Webb Ellis' rash action was practically suicidal. But his novel approach was taken up by other students, who went on to develop a new style of football. Known as Rugby football, it mainly involved throwing and running with the ball rather than kicking it. The game grew in popularity, and in 1871, the Rugby Union was formed in London. It drew up the modern rules for a 15-a-side game using an oval ball. Nowadays, rugby is played in more than 80 countries around the world. As for William Webb Ellis, his spirit lives on. His name has been given to the trophy awarded to the winners of the quadrennial Rugby World Cup tournament. For young men in New Zealand, the pinnacle of sporting achievement is widely reckoned to be donning the famous black uniform of the national rugby team. Ever since 1905, when the first officially sanctioned New Zealand touring team swept aside all opposition on a tour of Britain, the fearsome All Blacks have retained an aura of invincibility that has rarely been overcome. Such is the reputation of the All Blacks that some believe they gain a psychological advantage over their opponents the moment they step out onto the playing field. If such an advantage really exists, it can only be enhanced when, as tradition dictates, the team performs the celebrated haka before the match kicks off. Haka is the generic term for a traditional dance of the Maori people. Its connection with the game of rugby goes back to the late 19th century, when the New Zealand Native Team performed one on an unofficial tour of Britain. Nowadays, the haka is still led by a player of Maori descent whenever and wherever the All Blacks take the field. While recent years have seen the All Blacks struggling to match their past successes, the emergence of skillful professionals such as Tongan-born winger Jonah Lomu ensures that the famous black jersey with the silver fern on the left breast is still able to instill awe in opponents and spectators alike. 对新西兰的年轻人来说,运动生涯的最高成就,就是能穿上那套出名的橄榄球国家代表队的黑色制。自从1905年 第一正式批准的新西兰代表队远征英伦巡回比赛,横扫所有对手,大获全胜以来,这令人生畏的“全黑队”就保持了几乎不可战胜的气势。 这就是“全黑队”的名声,有些人认为,他们走上球场的那一刻,就在心理上压倒了对手。如果这样的优势真的存在,当这队伍在传统的指引下,在比赛前跳起著名的“哈卡”舞,这种优势才能得到加强。 “哈卡”是毛利人一种传统舞蹈的通称。它与橄榄球运动的联系可以追溯到19世纪末,新西兰土著球队队在英国各地进行非正式比赛期间表演了这种舞蹈。现在,不论何时何地,只要“全黑队”比赛,就仍会有一名毛利人后裔球员带 头跳“哈卡”舞。 近几年,“全黑队”努力想恢复旧日荣光,球技超群的职业球员如:汤加出生的侧翼大将乔纳·洛姆等一一出现, 则可以保:这件著名的左胸前镶有银蕨(注:新西兰的国徽)的黑色球衣,还是能让敌手胆战心惊、让观众肃然起敬的。在外行的眼中,橄榄球赛只不过是一大群身材健壮的男人相互冲撞推挤,为了一颗椭圆形的球你争我夺。事实上, 这个现代美加地区“美式足球”的始祖,看起来更像是一场有组织的争吵,而不像是遵循复杂规则、讲究高度技巧的运动。与其他现代运动相比较,橄榄球的不寻常之处,除了屡见不鲜的混乱场面,也在于它的起源,它可已追溯到某一重要的事件。1823年,一场英格兰中部享有盛名的拉格公学(Rugby School)举行的足球赛中,一名球员一时冲动,把球拿起来带着跑。以当时的足球玩法,威廉·韦伯·艾利斯的鲁莽行动无疑是“自寻死路”。但他的这种新打法竟被其他学生接过来,继而发展成一种新式的足球--被称为橄榄球(Rugby football),它以传球和带球跑为主,而不去踢球。 这项运动日见普及,到1871年,“橄榄球联盟”在伦敦成立,拟定了现代的规则:每一队15人,使用椭圆形球比赛。现今,世界上有80多个国家举行橄榄球赛。 至于艾利斯本人,他的精神永存。四年一次的世界杯橄榄球锦标赛的奖杯就是以“威廉·韦伯·艾利斯杯”命名的。 Article/200803/30104。


  Two years after it was appointed by the governor, a panel has delivered its report on education in California. One of its findings is that half of the students who reach the ninth grade will never graduate. There were about 6 million students in California’s K-12 grades in the spring of 2006.The report focused on problems with the education system; it did not offer any solutions. Solutions might be offered in the future, if the governor decides to appoint another panel. Meanwhile, thousands of kids 15 to 18 years old will be dropping out of school every year. Without a high school diploma, most of these kids are doomed to a lifetime of part-time work or full-time jobs that offer no security, no benefits, and no opportunity for advancement. And the cities that these kids live in will see an increase in loitering, homelessness, and crime.As usual, the taxpayer is going to pay for the failures of the government. He is going to be asked to approve bonds that will build yet more schools, more prisons, and more housing for the homeless. These bonds, unfortunately, are like using band-aids when stitches or tourniquets are needed.The dropouts do not see a bleak future for themselves. In the report, one student was asked why he had dropped out of the tenth grade. “School was boring,” he said. “I got a life to live. There’s women, parties, fast cars, and easy money on the street, if you know where to find it. And if things ever go south, all I gotta do is apply for welfare. They’ll put me up in an apartment, and give me food stamps and free medical care. Why do I need an education or a stupid job?” Article/201105/137546

  The monster#39;s story怪物的故事7第7章After I had left the laboratory, I escaped into the country outside the town. I soon felt hungry and thirsty,and my first food was fruit which I found on some trees near a river. I drank from the river and then lay down and went to sleep.我离开实验室后,便逃到了城外的乡间。不久我便感到又饥又渴;我的第一顿食物是我在河边的树上找到的果子。我喝了河里的水,然后躺倒睡着了。At first my eyes and ears did not work very well,but after a while I began to see and hear clearly.开始时我的眼睛和耳朵不大灵便,但过了一会儿我就能看清楚、听明白了。One day, snow began to fall. Of course, I had never walked in snow before, and I found that it made my feet very cold. I realized that I needed food and a place to get warm.Soon I saw a small hut where an old man was cooking his breakfast over a fire. When the old man saw me, he shouted loudly and ran away as fast as he could. I did not understand what the man was doing, but I wanted to be near the fire. So I sat down in the warm, and ate the man#39;s breakfast. Then I walked across empty fields for some hours until I reached a village. I went into one of the houses, but there were children inside. They began to scream when they saw me, and their mother fainted. The whole village came to see what was the trouble. Some of the people ran away when they saw me, but the others shouted and threw stones at me.They wanted to kill me. I was badly hurt, but I escaped and ran into the open country.有一天,天下起了雪。当然,我以前从未在雪中走过,我发现它让我的双脚感觉非常冷。我意识到我需要食物和住处取暖。我很快便看到了一个小茅舍,里面有个老人正在火上做早饭。当那个老人看到我时,他大声喊叫了起来并以自己最快的速度跑开了。我不明白这个老人在干什么,但是我想靠近火堆。于是我暖暖和和地坐下并吃了这个人做的早餐。然后我在空旷的田野中走了好几个小时,直到到了一个村庄。我走进了其中的一家房子,可是里面有几个孩子。他们见到我后便尖叫起来,他们的母亲也晕倒了。全村的人都来看发生了什么事情。有些人见到我后便跑开了,但另外一些人则喊叫起来并朝我扔石头。他们想要杀死我。我伤得很重,可还是逃脱了并跑进了旷野之中。Later, I found an empty hut, which was built against the wall of a small house. I was afraid to go into the house after what had happened in the village, so I hid in the hut. There I was safe, and could escape from the cold, and hide from people who wished to hurt me.后来,我找到了一个空茅屋。它是靠着一个小屋子的一堵墙而建起来的。在那个村子里发生了那桩事之后,我不敢进屋,因而便藏在茅屋中。我在那儿是安全的,并且可以避寒,还可以逃避那些想要伤害我的人。And then I found that there was a small hole in the wall between the hut and the house.Through this hole I could see in-to the room next to the hut. Three people lived in the house—a beautiful girl, an old man, and a young man.接着我发现在茅屋和那房屋之间的墙之间有一个洞。通过这个洞我可以看见茅屋隔壁的房间。有三个人住在那个屋子里——一个漂亮的女孩,一个老人,还有一个年轻人。Day after day I watched the three people.I saw how kind they were to each other. I wanted so much to go into the house and be with them, but I knew I must stay in the hut. I could not forget how the village people had hurt me when I tried to go into the house there.我一天天地观察着这三个人。我看到他们之间是多么亲密。我非常想进屋去加入他们的行列,但我清楚我必须呆在茅屋里。我想走进那个屋子时总忘不了村民们是怎么伤害我的。 /201205/181563
