It is called the Roof of Africa. Rising 19,340 feet nearly 4 miles into the sky, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest point on the entire African continent.乞力马扎罗山被称为非洲屋脊。其高度达19340英尺近4英里直入云端,它是整个非洲大陆的最高点。Located in northeastern Tanzania in east Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is about equal distant from Cairo to the north and Cape Town to the south, around 220 miles south of the equator. The majestic snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro have long captured the worlds imagination. Thousandshavetraveled to Tanzania to climb the mountain, or to view its famous glacier-covered peak. One such visitor, the American author Earnest Hemingway, even wrote a story about it. In The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Hemingway described the mountains ice fields as widest all overthe world, great, high and unbelievably white in the sun.位于东非坦桑尼亚东北部的乞力马扎罗山在赤道以南220英里,大约相当于开罗最北到开普敦最南的距离。雄伟的乞力马扎罗山的积雪盖顶早就引起了世界注意。成千上万的人来到坦桑尼亚来攀登这座高峰,或观看其著名的冰川覆盖高峰。大名鼎鼎的美国作家海明威, 作为一名旅行者,甚至写了一篇关于它的小说。在大雪纷飞的乞力马扎罗山,海明威描述山的冰块就如同世界一样宽广,高大及它在太阳底下所呈现出的难以致信的白色。As spectacular as it is to see, the ice on top of Mount Kilimanjaro serves a much more important purpose. Formed more than 11, 000 years ago, the glaciers are a vital source of drinking and farming water for those who live in the surrounding areas. But for the last century the snows have been disappearing. Kilimanjaros glaciers have shrunk by more than 80% since 1912. This can be seen in pictures that the NASA satellite Landsat has been taking of the mountains ice cap for more than a decade. This is how it looked in 1993. And this is how it looked just 7 years later in 2000.因为它的壮观,乞力马扎罗山顶上的冰现在被赋予了更重要的使命,那就是务大众。这些形成于超过11,000年前的冰川对于那些住在附近地区的人们来说是很重要的生存饮用水源及农业用水源。但自上个世纪以来,冰雪已经开始逐渐消失。自1912年以来,乞力马扎罗山的冰川已经缩小至原来的80%。这可以从美国NASA卫星Landsat十年前拍摄的照片上看到。这是它在1993年的样子。而这是7年后,即2000年的样貌。There are several theories as to why Mount Kilimanjaros snow is disappearing so quickly. For one thing, the mountain is located in a tropical region. For this reason, its glaciers are especially vulnerable to climate changes. One type of climate change is called global warming, which is causing a constant rise in the Earths temperature. Another possible reason that glaciers are melting is deforestation, which happens when trees are cut down in mass quantities. Trees keep the air cooler and add moisture to the atmosphere which helps create clouds and precipitation.乞力马扎罗山上的雪为何消失如此之快有几种理论。首先,该山位于热带地区。因为这个原因,冰川尤其容易受气候变化影响。一种类型的气候变化被称为全球变暖,这造成地球温度的不断上升。另一个可能的原因是树木被大规模砍伐。树木使空气冷却和增加湿气,帮助造云和降水。Regardless of the causes, the snows of Kilimanjaro continue to melt. Experts predict that the mountains glaciers could disappear completely by the year 2020. The loss of Kilimanjaros glaciers removes a source of water from the mountains surrounding area. In addition, it would probably decrease the amount of tourism and the revenue it generates to Tanzania. Finally, the disappearing snow in Africa serves as proof thatthe Earth, with its changing climate and warming trends, cannot always sustain its natural treasures.不管什么原因, 覆盖着的冰雪仍旧继续融化。专家预计冰川可能在2020年完全消失。乞力马扎罗山冰川的消失使周边地区少了一个水源。此外,旅游和坦桑尼亚的收入也可能会减少。最后,消失在非洲的雪明了地球处于气候变化和气候变暖趋势,不能总是维持其自然奇珍状态。词语解释:equal a. 同等的equator n. 赤道majestic a. 雄伟的163083。

Aging Tires That Look NewBrain Ross with a troubling investigation about the American tire industry.Summer time means millions more people on the road which makes it urgent that you see what Bryant Ross has discovered about tires. Are those new tires really new? Experts say finding out could protect you from deadly consequences. The call came to the Moore house in Newtown, Pennsylvania just days after 18-year-old Andy Moore had left in the family van for a graduation trip to Canada. "My ex-wife called me, Andy’s brother called me. And I'll never forget she said a policeman just came to the house, they told me Andy had a car accident, and then her voice started to crack, she said that and they told me that he died." Police outside Toronto said the accident that killed Andy Moore and Andy’s best friend wasn’t caused by speed or alcohol, but by a tire failure. The tire didn’t just blow out. The t actually peeled off the tire, leading Robert Moore to a troubling discovery about the American tire industry. "I got my vehicle maintenance records together, and that's when I discovered that the, tires that I thought were new were actually 4 years old when I bought them.” It turns out that tires sold in this country can be sitting on the shelves for years. And only later would Robert Moore learned about the researching tests which show that as tires get older, even if they look new, they begin to dry out, and after 6 years of age can become very dangerous. At the time of the accident, the tires on the Moore family van were actually 9 years old. I was led to believe I had safe tires on the car, and so I sent these boys off to Canada, thinking they had a safe vehicle and they didn’t.And decedent test done for lawsuits, when a car is traveling at highway speed and a tire t comes off, the car violently swerves and weaves. Even a skilled driver, who knew he was about to lose the tire, could not keep control. "I think I'm okay, I think I'm okay!""There is no scientific information that can point to when a tire should be removed because of age.""It’s a hidden danger. You can look at a tire where the tire looks greatly fine, you don’t know what’s going on inside it, that's what makes it so dangerous,"Shawn Cane who runs a private auto-safety research firm has been in the forefront of trying to draw attention to the issue of aged tires."Essentially it'sdrying out, yeah, it's becoming less elastic.” Even when the tire has never been driven a mile and looks like it has plenty of t depth, the usual test of a tire safety: "You have plenty of t depth on this tire, right, plenty of t depth, it's brand-new," "Yet it's very dangerous in your view.""Absolutely.” 01/60396。

The View ladies talking about Rihanna Rihanna was hit by her boyfriend Chris Brown, The View ladies are talking about it. Because when you look at it, when you look at it as it is which is what you said the other day, it’s very easy for someone in an abuse relationship to go back. But I loved him, but I trusted him and nobody says she has to be a role model.Okay, I’m just gonna say this one more time(we don't know) that we don't know(That's right.) the circumstances under which Rihanna was hit. (They are being investigated)They are being... Yes and so before we say, before we sort of keep making it sound like she's gone back to her abuser, I’d like to say that (We know he did something )we don't know, we don't know what he did. We don't know what happened.I know that we don't know. I just think that there're at least a lot of young girls out here who are assuming, and I feel like, you know, there are a lot of young girls out who feel like I can go back because I can change if I love him enough. And we don't know what happened, but I think a lot of young people are assuming and then looking at this, and this is a very important issue for...(... back ... a huge confidence.)Yes, but, it goes back to that, but it also goes back to, sometimes you can't just jump to conclusions.But we saw her face.I know we saw, you know what, another girl could have done that. We don't know the circumstances as all I am saying and before I wanna...( Why did he need management, ok?)well, maybe he is an angry guy, I mean ,that doesn't mean, you know, because he yells and gets in her face, I don't know that he hit her.(And he is ...That's fair.)So I'm not gonna assume, you know, that he did it because God knows pictures all of us have been places and we think, wait a minute, that’s not what he does, that’s what that is.And I'm glad he is in anger management class cuz this is a boy. He is 19 years old. he just said a few years ago that he thought he would be in prison because he watched his step father abuse his mother, so he just came not even a couple of years ago, came out of home where he saw abuse all the time and then he became a superstar. So actually I 'm glad he's in anger management class.I'm just saying when you do the math, see the photo, he is in anger management, makes an apology, you kind of start, it just ain't easy. Right, it doesn’t. But it’s easy as assumption…Let us hope that something good comes out of this, coz we've been talking about it the other day...04/68257。

Women in Turkey 土耳其妇女Behind the veil 面纱背后Women’s influence in politics is growing, but it is still small妇女在政治中的影响越来越大,但这影响还是很小May 12th 2011 | ISTANBUL | from the print edition THIS week in Istanbul 13 European countries signed a Council of Europe convention on combating violence against women. All 47 members were urged to comply. Turkey pushed hard for the convention, which calls for hotlines, shelters and legal aid for abused women.这个星期13个欧洲国家在伊斯坦布尔签署了一项有关与反对妇女的暴力作斗争的欧洲委员会条约。敦促所有4个成员国遵守。土耳其极力推行为受虐待妇女呼吁热线,庇护所和法律援助的条约。 So it should. Turkey ranks with Russia as one of the worst countries in Europe for abuse of women. By the government’s admission, five women a day were killed by abusers in the first seven months of . A chilling new report from Human Rights Watch, an advocacy group, suggests that the situation is getting worse. It finds that 42% of women over 15 have suffered physical or sexual violence; they are vulnerable even when pregnant. Asli, a 21-year old Kurdish woman, was injected with poison, beaten and raped by her husband and in-laws, and locked in a barn without food or water. She decided to seek help from local prosecutors after her father-in-law burned her arm and declared that “I didn’t just get you here for my son, but also for my pleasure.” But the prosecutors never contacted her, and she now fears for her life. Asli’s story is all too common. 土耳其应该这么做。土耳其同俄罗斯一起被列为欧洲虐待妇女最严重的的国家之一。政府承认,年前7个月每天有五位妇女被虐待者们杀害身亡。一个利益团体(或利益集团)---人权观察的一项令人不寒而栗的新报道表明情况正在恶化。人权观察发现15岁以上42%的女性曾遭受过身体或性暴力行为;甚至她们怀时,她们还是容易受到攻击。一位21岁的库尔德妇女阿斯利(Asli)曾被注射毒药,被其丈夫及公婆殴打和强奸,并被锁在仓库里且不给食物和水。在她被她公公烧毁了手臂并声称“我要你来我们家不仅仅为了我儿子,而且还为了我自己寻欢作乐。”后,她决定从当地检察官那儿寻求帮助。但是检察官们从来没有联系过她,她现在担心她的性命。阿斯利的故事实在太普遍了。201105/136227。

Survivors of Haiti's Earthquake in Urgent Need of Tents, Food联合国:海地幸存者急需帐篷和食物 ed Nations aid agencies say millions of survivors of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake are in urgent need of tents and food. The ed Nations also is appealing to donors to convert their pledges of money into cash, which is desperately needed to finance this complex and expensive emergency operation.The ed Nations says it urgently needs 200,000 family tents to shelter one million people displaced by the earthquake before the rainy season begins in April. It says only a fraction of the required tents are in the country.联合国说,在4月份开始的雨季到来之前,他们急需20万个家用帐篷,为100万由于地震而流离失所的海地人提供蔽护。联合国说,海地目前只有少量的帐篷,远远不及所需要的数量。In the same order of importance is the need for food. The World Food Program says it has delivered three million rations, the equivalent of nearly 10 million meals, to 450,000 people. 同样急需的还有食品。世界粮食计划署表示,他们已经为45万人分发了300万份食物配给,这相当于大约1000万份餐食。But WFP spokeswoman Emilia Casella says that is not enough. She says her agency urgently needs tens of millions of y-to-eat meals to feed two million people for 15 days.但是,世界粮食计划署的女发言人卡塞拉表示,这仍然不够。她说,粮食署急需数千万份即食餐,以在未来15天内为两百万人提供食物。"Our Executive Director has appealed to all governments, all military around the world to give to us as many y-to-eat meals as they have on hand, that they can provide to us for Haiti," she said. "The need is extremely urgent and we need them as soon as possible." 她说:“我们署长已经向世界各地的政府和军队发出呼吁,希望他们拿出所有能拿出的即食食品让我们提供给海地。这是非常紧急的需要,我们要尽快得到这些食品。”Casella says the World Food Program is feeding about 100,000 people a day. Given the enormous needs, she says her agency is making plans to expand its humanitarian operations beyond the six months for which it is budgeted. 卡塞拉说,世界粮食计划署目前每天为约10万人提供食物。她说,鉴于需求巨大,粮食署正在计划延长其在海地的人道救援行动。这一行动原先有6个月的预算。She says the agency is in the process of re-evaluating the needs and re-evaluating the increased amounts of money it will need to finance the operation.她还表示,目前粮食计划署正在重新评估当地需求,以及为资助救援行动需要增加的资金。The ed Nations issued a Flash Appeal for 5 million less than two weeks ago. The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says the ed Nations has received 48 percent of that amount.联合国在不到两个星期前发出紧急呼吁,表示需要5亿7千5百万美元资金。联合国人道主义事务协调办公室说,目前已经得到这一总数的48%。OCHA notes the ed Nations also has received contributions and pledges inside and outside of the Flash Appeal for a combined total of more than 0 million.人道主义事务协调办公室指出,响应联合国紧急呼吁的捐款以及其他的捐款承诺合起来已经超过7亿4千万美元。In addition, it says it has received more than billion in uncommitted pledges.

Anti-Aging Pilates Turning back the hands of time without going under a knife You’re fighting the hands of time to get a younger look? If going under the knife is just not your cup of tea, try Pilates. Instructor Linda Farrell says it’s like the fountain of / youth. “Pilates is all about developing core strength in the trunk, and this helps promote a healthy spine; it’s about learning how to breathe deeply to reduce stress, and it’s about learning how to strengthen the muscles, but you also look fantastic.” And that’s exactly how 54-year-old Yvonne Martin feels. She’s been doing Pilates for over five years. And says she’s noticed youthful changes. “It feels about 20. I’m standing straighter, I’m taller. I feel like my muscles, my whole body’s longer, my waist is really tight; my abs(abdominal muscles) are incredible. I have to say, they are pretty good. And I think it’s due to the Pilates work.” So how can you get these anti-ageing results too? Linda has some suggestions. Thinking of liposuction? Linda says “No need”. “I have a wonderful exercise called Heel Beats . We do it lying on the stomach and it actually helps lift your butt. And my students love it because while they are doing it, they actually feel their butts lifting and they feel those muscles working.”Thinking you need a breast lift? Think again. “The first thing I like to do is get people to stand up and to open up in here, and then I offer two wonderful exercises. One is called chest expansion,no pun intended. And the other is swan dive which works on opening the chest and strengthening the muscles in the back, which is so important to prevent that slumping.” Need a tummy tuck? No way! I worked with a Pilates course exercise which is really wonderful. You simply pull your belly / button in and lift up like you are wearing a little corset and you have a flatter belly and a narrower waistline. Linda says age doesn’t matter. You can start your Pilates workout at any point in your life. And with two to three days a week, you are sure to start seeing and feeling a difference.

Driving into Tripoli is to drive into a ghost city. It looks like a set for a Hollywood apocalypse film.开车到的黎波里,犹如进入一座死城。看来就像好莱坞拍摄世界末日影片的场景一样。Instead of a bustling seaside capital of 1.5 million people, we drove Thursday past kilometer and kilometer of shuttered metal storefronts.它不再是一座拥有一百五十万人口的繁华城市,当我们星期四开车一公里接着一公里地在市区巡行时,眼前所见,尽是些门窗紧闭的店面。We arrived to find a city stripped of people.我们看到的是一座荒无人迹的城市。As shots rang in the distance, only an occasional car or pickup truck raced down glass-strewn streets.远处传来的是阵阵声。偶而,有一辆汽车或小型卡车压着路面的玻璃碎片打这里经过。Entering from the west, we met checkpoints every block. Tense rebels dressed in tee-shirts, shorts and sandals manned roadblocks improvised from mattresses, even school desks.我们从西边驶入市区,每一个路口都设有检查哨。紧张的反政府武装的军人穿着套头汗衫,短裤和拖鞋。他们守着临时以床垫和学校书桌等物品堆成的路障。Heavily armed, they were men from the mountains, unable to direct us to our hotel. Fifteen minutes after we left one beachfront hotel, a firefight erupted outside.这些荷实弹、来自山区的人无法告诉我们如何回到我们住宿的酒店。在我们离开一家海边酒店15分钟后,那里就发生了战。After four days of fighting in the capital, the rebels control about three-quarters of the city. But opposition ranges from single snipers to formations of entrenched Gadhafi loyalists.经过四天的交火,反对派部队控制了大约四分之三的市区,但是他们仍旧面对从个别狙击手到忠于卡扎菲份子的有组织的对抗。201108/151094。
