Okinawa curfew after sex charges 驻冲绳美军将实行宵禁 Protests against US bases in Japan are not uncommon 对美军基地的抗议活动在日本并非罕见 The US military said it would impose a midnight curfew and drinking ban on marines on the Japanese island of Okinawa after a serviceman was charged with sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl in her bedroom. But the restrictions have prompted criticism as they will only apply for a few days before and during the summit of the Group of Eight (G8) countries, which is being held on the island in a fortnight's time. On Friday, the chief aide of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori flew to Okinawa to soothe mounting local anger, while the top US military official on the island made an unprecedented apology on Thursday. 一个美国士兵因在一个14岁的女孩卧室对其进行猥亵被起诉后,美国军方说,它将对驻日本冲绳岛的海军陆战队实行午夜宵禁和禁酒令。但这一限令遭到了批评,因为它只是在八国首脑会议之前和期间在冲绳岛实行两周时间。周五,日本首相首席顾问Yoshiro Mori飞往冲绳安抚日渐愤怒的民众,美军驻本岛最高将领也于周四做了前所未有的道歉。 Article/200803/31349Norma was discouraged. She was a new realtor. She had recently passed the state test on her first try. Then she joined a realty company. They offered training classes two to four times a week. Norma attended the classes faithfully.But because English was her second language, she didn’t catch everything that the instructor said. When she asked the instructor to repeat something, he told her to see him after class. But when other students asked a question, the instructor answered the question right then and there.To Norma, the instructor always said, "See me after class." Then, when she tried to see him after class, he would say that he was late for an appointment. "How about next time?" he would say. He was always too busy to help her."He’s not too busy, he’s just too lazy," her boyfriend said. “There are too many ‘instructors' like that. All they care about is presenting their information. If the students don’t get it, that’s their problem. You have to be strong. These people are not going to help you. They want you to fail, because that means less competition for them. It’s a dog-eat-dog business." Article/201103/129988

;HowdespicablyI have acted!; she cried; ;I, who have prided myself on my discernment! I, who have valued myself on my abilities! who have often disdained the generous candour of my sister, and gratified my vanity in useless or blameable mistrust! How humiliating is this discovery! Yet, how just a humiliation! Had I been in love, I could not have been more wretchedly blind! But vanity, not love, has been my folly. Pleased with the preference of one, and offended by the neglect of the other, on the very beginning of our acquaintance, I have courted prepossession and ignorance, and driven reason away, where either were concerned. Till this moment I never knew myself. ; 她不禁大声叫道:“我做得多么卑鄙!我一向自负有知人之明!我一向自以为有本领!一向看不起那种宽大的胸襟!为了满足我自己的虚荣心,我待人老是不着边际地猜忌多端,而且还要做得使我自己无懈可击。这是我多么可耻的地方!可是,这种耻辱又是多么活该!即使我真的爱上了人家,也不会盲目到这样该死的地步。然而我的愚蠢,并不是在恋爱方面,而是有虚荣心方面。开头刚刚认识他们两位的时候,一个喜欢我,我很高兴,一个怠慢我,我就生气,因此造成了我的偏见和无知,遇到与他们有关的事情,我就不能明辨是非。我到现在才算不了自知之明。” From herself to Jane--from Jane to Bingley, her thoughts were in a line which soon brought to her recollection that Mr. Darcy#39;s explanation THERE had appeared veryinsufficient,and she it again. Widely different was the effect of a second perusal. How could she deny that credit to his assertions in one instance, which she had been obliged to give in the other? He declared himself to be totally unsuspicious of her sister#39;s attachment; and she could not help remembering what Charlotte#39;s opinion had always been. Neither could she deny the justice of his description of Jane. She felt that Jane#39;s feelings, though fervent, were little displayed, and that there was a constant complacency in her air and manner not often united with great sensibility. 她从自己身上想到吉英身上,又从吉英身上想到彬格莱身上,她的思想联成了一条直线,使她立刻想起了达西先生对这件事的解释非常不够;于是她又把他的信读了一遍。第二遍读起来效果就大不相同了。她既然在一件事情上不得不信任他,在另一件事上又怎能不信任呢?他说他完全没想到她对彬格莱先生有意思,于是她不禁想起了从前夏绿蒂一贯的看法。她也不能否认他把吉英形容得很恰当。她觉得吉英虽然爱心炽烈,可是表面上却不露形迹,她平常那种安然自得的神气,实在叫人看不出她的多愁善感。 When she came to that part of the letter in which her family were mentioned in terms of suchmortifying, yet merited reproach, her sense of shame was severe. The justice of the charge struck her too forcibly for denial, and the circumstances to which he particularly alluded as having passed at the Netherfield ball, and as confirming all his first disapprobation, could not have made a stronger impression on his mind than on hers. 当她读到他提起她家里人的那一段时,其中措辞固然伤人感情,然而那一番责难却也入情入理,于是她越发觉得惭愧。那真是一针见血的指责,使她否认不得;他特别指出,尼日斐花园建交舞会上的种种情形,是第一次造成他反对这门婚姻的原因……老实说,那种情形固然使他难以忘怀,自己也同样难以忘怀。 The compliment to herself and her sister was not unfelt. It soothed, but it could not console her for the contempt which had thus been self-attracted by the rest of her family; and as she considered that Jane#39;s disappointment had in fact been the work of her nearest relations, and reflected how materially the credit of both must be hurt by such impropriety of conduct, she felt depressed beyond anything she had ever known before. 至于他对她自己和对她的恭维,她也不是无动于中。她听了很舒,可是她并没有因此而感到安慰,因为她家里人不争气,招来他的訾议,并不能从恭维中得到补偿。她认为吉英的失望完全是自己的至亲骨肉一手造成的,她又想到,她们两的优点也一定会因为至亲骨肉的行为失检而受到损害,想到这里,她感到从来没有过的沮丧。 After wandering along the lane for two hours, giving way to every variety of thought--re-considering events, determining probabilities, and reconciling herself, as well as she could, to a change so sudden and so important,fatigue, and a recollection of her long absence, made her at length return home; and she entered the house with the wish of appearing cheerful as usual, and the resolution of repressing such reflections as must make her unfit for conversation. 她沿着小路走了两个钟头,前前后后地左思右想,又把好多事情重新考虑了一番,判断一下是否确有其事。这一次突然的变更,实在事关紧要,她得尽量面对事实。她现在觉得疲倦了,又想到出来已久,应该回去了;她希望走进屋子的时候脸色能象平常一样愉快,又决计把那些心思抑制一下,免得跟人家谈起话来态度不自然。 She was immediately told that the two gentlemen from Rosings had each called during her absence; Mr. Darcy, only for a few minutes, to take leave--but that Colonel Fitzwilliam had been sitting with them at least an hour, hoping for her return, and almost resolving to walk after her till she could be found. Elizabeth could but just AFFECT concern in missing him; she reallyrejoicedat it. Colonel Fitzwilliam was no longer an object; she could think only of her letter. 回到屋子里,人家立刻告诉她说,在她出外的当儿,罗新斯的两位先生都来看过她了,达西先生是来辞行的,只待了几分钟就走了,费茨威廉上校却跟她们在一起坐了足足一个钟头,盼望着她回来,几乎想要跑出去找到她才肯罢休。伊丽莎白虽然表面上装出很惋惜的样子,内心里却因为没有见到这位访客而感到万分高兴。她心目中再也没有费茨威廉了,她想到的只有那封信。despicably adv. 可鄙地; 卑劣地insufficient adj. 不够的, 不充足的mortifying adj.令人悔恨的console v. 安慰fatigue n. 疲乏, 疲劳rejoice v. 欣喜 Article/201111/162574

Homelessness is a terrible thing. It really shouldn’t exist today. A country should be ashamed if anyone is homeless. Governments are so rich today, yet they have no money to provide basic needs for their citizens. This is rubbish. Think how much money governments waste on fancy cars and other unnecessary things. It’s a crime. Even in rich countries, there are thousands of homeless. The government tries to sweep them under the carpet. They want to pretend the problem doesn’t exist. The world’s richest countries spend billions of dollars on weapons, but can’t make sure people have a roof over their head. This is disgusting. All world leaders should be ashamed of themselves. I feel so sorry for the homeless. Article/201105/135733

  9When the queen of Sheba heard of Solomon's fame, she came to Jerusalem to test him with hard questions. Arriving with a very great caravan-with camels carrying spices, large quantities of gold, and precious stones-she came to Solomon and talked with him about all she had on her mind. 2Solomon answered all her questions; nothing was too hard for him to explain to her. 3When the queen of Sheba saw the wisdom of Solomon, as well as the palace he had built, 4the food on his table, the seating of his officials, the attending servants in their robes, the cupbearers in their robes and the burnt offerings he made at the temple of the Lord , she was overwhelmed. 5She said to the king, "The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true. 6But I did not believe what they said until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half the greatness of your wisdom was told me; you have far exceeded the report I heard. 7How happy your men must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! 8Praise be to the Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on his throne as king to rule for the Lord your God. Because of the love of your God for Israel and his desire to uphold them forever, he has made you king over them, to maintain justice and righteousness." 9Then she gave the king 120 talents of gold, large quantities of spices, and precious stones. There had never been such spices as those the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon. 10(The men of Hiram and the men of Solomon brought gold from Ophir; they also brought algumwood and precious stones. 11The king used the algumwood to make steps for the temple of the Lord and for the royal palace, and to make harps and lyres for the musicians. Nothing like them had ever been seen in Judah.) 12King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired and asked for; he gave her more than she had brought to him. Then she left and returned with her retinue to her own country. 13The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents, 14not including the revenues brought in by merchants and traders. Also all the kings of Arabia and the governors of the land brought gold and silver to Solomon. 15King Solomon made two hundred large shields of hammered gold; six hundred bekas of hammered gold went into each shield. 16He also made three hundred small shields of hammered gold, with three hundred bekas of gold in each shield. The king put them in the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon. 17Then the king made a great throne inlaid with ivory and overlaid with pure gold. 18The throne had six steps, and a footstool of gold was attached to it. On both sides of the seat were armrests, with a lion standing beside each of them. 19Twelve lions stood on the six steps, one at either end of each step. Nothing like it had ever been made for any other kingdom. 20All King Solomon's goblets were gold, and all the household articles in the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon were pure gold. Nothing was made of silver, because silver was considered of little value in Solomon's day. 21The king had a fleet of trading ships manned by Hiram's men. Once every three years it returned, carrying gold, silver and ivory, and apes and baboons. 22King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. 23All the kings of the earth sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart. 24Year after year, everyone who came brought a gift-articles of silver and gold, and robes, weapons and spices, and horses and mules. 25Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horses, which he kept in the chariot cities and also with him in Jerusalem. 26He ruled over all the kings from the River to the land of the Philistines, as far as the border of Egypt. 27The king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar as plentiful as sycamore-fig trees in the foothills. 28Solomon's horses were imported from Egypt and from all other countries. 29As for the other events of Solomon's reign, from beginning to end, are they not written in the records of Nathan the prophet, in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite and in the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jeroboam son of Nebat? 30Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years. 31Then he rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David his father. And Rehoboam his son succeeded him as king. Article/200812/59931

  Love is a wonderful thing, but is it possible to fall in love with someone at first sight? Many people say they have done this. How can it be possible? Surely it takes a time to get to know someone and then fall in love. I think falling in love at first sight is dangerous. You don’t really know the person. Maybe after you’ve built your life around them you’ll find lots of faults in them and suddenly be disappointed. Then you’ll have to fall out of love. Anyway, is it really love at first sight or is it love at first conversation? And what if the other person doesn’t fall in love with you at first sight? This could be a bit painful. It could also be embarrassing. I think I like the traditional way of falling in love after 257 dates. Article/201105/138071。

  班太太看到尼日斐花园的一家人都这么喜爱她的大女儿,觉得非常得意。吉英跟她母亲一样得意,只不过没有象她母亲那样声张。伊丽莎白也为吉英快活。The evening altogether passed off pleasantly to the whole family. Mrs. Bennet had seen her eldest daughter much admired by the Netherfield party. Mr. Bingley had danced with her twice, and she had been distinguished by his sisters. Jane was as much gratified by this as her mother could be, though in a quieter way. Elizabeth felt Jane's pleasure. Mary had heard herself mentioned to Miss Bingley as the most accomplished girl in the neighbourhood; and Catherine and Lydia had been fortunate enough never to be without partners, which was all that they had yet learnt to care for at a ball. They returned, therefore, in good spirits to Longbourn, the village where they lived, and of which they were the principal inhabitants. They found Mr. Bennet still up. With a book he was regardless of time; and on the present occasion he had a good deal of curiosity as to the events of an evening which had raised such splendid expectations. He had rather hoped that his wife's views on the stranger would be disappointed; but he soon found out that he had a different story to hear. "Oh! my dear Mr. Bennet, " as she entered the room, "we have had a most delightful evening, a most excellent ball. I wish you had been there. Jane was so admired, nothing could be like it. Everybody said how well she looked; and Mr. Bingley thought her quite beautiful, and danced with her twice! Only think of THAT, my dear; he actually danced with her twice! and she was the only creature in the room that he asked a second time. First of all, he asked Miss Lucas. I was so vexed to see him stand up with her! But, however, he did not admire her at all; indeed, nobody can, you know; and he seemed quite struck with Jane as she was going down the dance. So he inquired who she was, and got introduced, and asked her for the two next. Then the two third he danced with Miss King, and the two fourth with Maria Lucas, and the two fifth with Jane again, and the two sixth with Lizzy, and the BOULANGER--" Article/201011/119421

  The significant inscription found on an old key---“If I rest, I rust”---would be an excellent motto for those who are afflicted with the slightest bit of idleness. Even the most industrious person might adopt it with advantage to serve as a reminder that, if one allows his faculties to rest, like the iron in the unused key, they will soon show signs of rust and, ultimately, cannot do the work required of them.Those who would attain the heights reached and kept by great men must keep their faculties polished by constant use, so that they may unlock the doors of knowledge, the gate that guard the entrances to the professions, to science, art, literature, agriculture---every department of human endeavor.Industry keeps bright the key that opens the treasury of achievement. If Hugh Miller, after toiling all day in a quarry, had devoted his evenings to rest and recreation, he would never have become a famous geologist. The celebrated mathematician, Edmund Stone, would never have published a mathematical dictionary, never have found the key to science of mathematics, if he had given his spare moments to idleness, had the little Scotch lad, Ferguson, allowed the busy brain to go to sleep while he tended sheep on the hillside instead of calculating the position of the stars by a string of beads, he would never have become a famous astronomer.Labor vanquishes all---not inconstant, spasmodic, or ill-directed labor; but faithful, unremitting, daily effort toward a well-directed purpose. Just as truly as eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, so is eternal industry the price of noble and enduring success.译文如果我休息,我就会生锈在一把旧钥匙上发现了一则意义深远的铭文——如果我休息,我就会生锈。对于那些懒散而烦恼的人来说,这将是至理名言。甚至最为勤勉的人也以此作为警示:如果一个人有才能而不用,就像废弃钥匙上的铁一样,这些才能就会很快生锈,并最终无法完成安排给自己的工作。有些人想取得伟人所获得并保持的成就,他们就必须不断运用自身才能,以便开启知识的大门,即那些通往人类努力探求的各个领域的大门,这些领域包括各种职业:科学,艺术,文学,农业等。勤奋使开启成功宝库的钥匙保持光亮。如果休#8226;米勒在采石场劳作一天后,晚上的时光用来休息消遣的话,他就不会成为名垂青史的地质学家。著名数学家爱德蒙#8226;斯通如果闲暇时无所事事,就不会出版数学词典,也不会发现开启数学之门的钥匙。如果苏格兰青年弗格森在山坡上放羊时,让他那思维活跃的大脑处于休息状态,而不是借助一串珠子计算星星的位置,他就不会成为著名的天文学家。劳动征一切。这里所指的劳动不是断断续续的,间歇性的或方向偏差的劳动,而是坚定的,不懈的,方向正确的每日劳动。正如要想拥有自由就要时刻保持警惕一样,要想取得伟大的,持久的成功,就必须坚持不懈地努力。 Article/200908/81003The escape of the Brazilian boa constrictor earned Harry his longest-ever punishment. By the time he was allowed out of his cupboard again, the summer holidays had started and Dudley had aly broken his new camera, crashed his remote control airplane, and, first time out on his racing bike, knocked down old Mrs. Figg as she crossed Privet Drive on her crutches. Harry was glad school was over, but there was no escaping Dudley#39;s gang, who visited the house every single day. Piers, Dennis, Malcolm, and Gordon were all big and stupid, but as Dudley was the biggest and stupidest of the lot, he was the leader. The rest of them were all quite happy to join in Dudley#39;s favorite sport: Harry Hunting. This was why Harry spent as much time as possible out of the house, wandering around and thinking about the end of the holidays, where he could see a tiny ray of hope. When September came he would be going off to secondary school and, for the first time in his life, he wouldn#39;t be with Dudley. Dudley had been accepted at Uncle Vernon#39;s old private school, Smeltings. Piers Polkiss was going there too. Harry, on the other hand, was going to Stonewall High, the local public school. Dudley thought this was very funny. ;They stuff people#39;s heads down the toilet the first day at Stonewall,; he told Harry. ;Want to come upstairs and practice?; ;No, thanks,; said Harry. ;The poor toilet#39;s never had anything as horrible as your head down it ; it might be sick.; Then he ran, before Dudley could work out what he#39;d said. One day in July, Aunt Petunia took Dudley to London to buy his Smeltings uniform, leaving Harry at Mrs. Figg#39;s. Mrs. Figg wasn#39;t as bad as usual. It turned out she#39;d broken her leg tripping over one of her cats, and she didn#39;t seem quite as fond of them as before. She let Harry watch television and gave him a bit of chocolate cake that tasted as though she#39;d had it for several years. That evening, Dudley paraded around the living room for the family in his brand-new uniform. Smeltings#39; boys wore maroon tailcoats, orange knickerbockers, and flat straw hats called boaters. They also carried knobbly sticks, used for hitting each other while the teachers weren#39;t looking. This was supposed to be good training for later life. As he looked at Dudley in his new knickerbockers, Uncle Vernon said gruffly that it was the proudest moment of his life. Aunt Petunia burst into tears and said she couldn#39;t believe it was her Ickle Dudleykins, he looked so handsome and grown-up. Harry didn#39;t trust himself to speak. He thought two of his ribs might aly have cracked from trying not to laugh.

  “我不能解释得更清楚了,”爱丽丝非常有礼貌地回答,“因为我压根儿不懂是怎么开始的,一天里改变好几次大小是非常不舒的。” Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll CHAPTER V Advice from a CaterpillarThe Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice. `Who are YOU?' said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.' `What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. `Explain yourself!' `I can't explain MYSELF, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, `because I'm not myself, you see.' `I don't see,' said the Caterpillar. `I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly,' Alice replied very politely, `for I can't understand it myself to begin with; and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing.'

  People say patience is a virtue. I agree with this. Having patience is a good part of someone's character. Not everyone has patience. These people get angry and frustrated quickly. They can't wait. If you have no patience, you want everything to happen right now. Children often have little patience, especially when there's a present to open. They get really impatient and want to open the gift immediately. We become more patient as we get older. Perhaps we learn how to be more patient. In today's world, you really need patience because we expect everything to happen straight away and often it doesn't. I'm quite patient. I need it for my job. I'm a teacher so you need to wait for people to answer and learn. Article/201106/142107。

  We 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.
