A潘玮柏教学地道日常口语 11 /200707/15456Hi, everybody. Today, I want to talk with you about the crisis in Puerto Rico and why it matters to all of us. Puerto Ricans are American citizens, just like folks in Maine or Oklahoma or New Mexico. And over the last decade, Puerto Rico has suffered through a deep and painful recession – but unlike the rest of the ed States, it hasnt recovered. Today, the island continues to face a crippling economic crisis. Schools are closing. Power is being cut off at homes and hospitals. Teachers have to choose between turning on the lights or turning on the computers. Doctors cant get medicine to treat newborns unless they pay in cash. And as the Zika virus threatens both the island and the mainland, workers dealing with mosquito control to help protect women and their unborn babies are at risk of being laid off. Right now, Puerto Rico is spending about a third of its tax revenue on debt payments – far more than anywhere else in America. And on July 1, the island faces another billion in debt payments that it cannot pay. There is only one way for Puerto Rico to pull itself out of this crisis – and thats by restructuring its debt and finding a sustainable fiscal path toward growth and opportunity for its people. But heres the problem. Right now, Puerto Rico doesnt have the tools it needs to restructure its debt – tools available elsewhere in America. And only Congress can fix the problem, and put Puerto Rico on a path to recovery. Thankfully, this week, the House overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan bill to address the crisis, and I now urge the Senate to move quickly to follow suit. This bill wont cost federal taxpayers a dime. It doesnt include special-interest bailouts. And it gives Puerto Rico the ability to restructure its debt, safeguard essential services, and provide important protections to public pensions that more than 300,000 folks rely on to retire with dignity. This bill also includes something else – a temporary system of oversight to help implement needed reforms and ensure transparency. I know that some folks in Puerto Rico are worried about this kind of oversight. But Ive always insisted that any solution to this crisis has to respect the democratic rights of the people of Puerto Rico. And I am committed to making sure that Puerto Ricans are well-represented in this process, so that we can be sure were taking steps that are in the islands best interests. This bill is not a perfect solution – nobodys saying it is. Thats what happens in divided government. But its the only option on the table to save Puerto Rico from spiraling out of control. And thats exactly what would happen if Congress fails to do its job. Theres no question this is a trying time for folks in Puerto Rico. Theyve seen too many jobs lost and too many neighbors leave in search of better opportunity elsewhere. Its clear that its time for Puerto Rico to chart a new course and make a fresh start. This bill is just a first step. We all have more work to do to make sure that the people of Puerto Rico receive the health care they deserve and the good jobs and economic opportunities they need to build a better future for their kids. And I want the people of Puerto Rico to know that my administration is committed to your success, because youre vital to Americas success. Thats what this is all about. We dont turn our backs on our fellow Americans. We dont treat folks differently because of where they live. Instead, we treat each other as Americans. We come together, especially when its hard. Thats how weve always set ourselves on a course toward a brighter day. Thanks, everybody, and have a great weekend.201606/451746I usually have to just like try to calm down and take a deep breath.通常我要深呼吸让自己镇静下来But then on top of that, you know, Sarah Jones told me we only have 18 minutes.但更糟糕的是,莎拉琼斯告诉我,我们总共只有18分钟So then Im like, should I be nervous, you know, because maybe its better.于是我想也许我应该紧张点儿才好And Im just trying not to panic and freak out.

VOA流行美语 130: tattletale / pushoverLarry和李华今天在公园玩飞盘时看到一个人随地丢垃圾。今天李华会学到两个常用语:tattletale和pushover.LH: Larry, 你看,那个人随地丢垃圾。我们是不是该去告诉站在那边的警察?LL: I don't know, Li Hua. I don't really like to be a tattletale. Maybe we should just go and pick up the garbage ourselves.LH: 我们为什么要帮他捡他的垃圾?他应该知道这样是很没有公德心的。你说你不想当个tattletale。那是什么意思?是不是说我们向警察报告是不对的?LL: A tattletale is someone who runs to tell the person in charge whenever someone else does something wrong. Usually, children call each other tattletales.LH: 噢,tattletale原来就是爱告状的人。要是一个小孩说粗话,他听到了就跑去告诉妈妈。这个就算是tattletale喽?LL: Exactly. In general, no one likes a tattletale because it seems as though that person is just trying to get attention.LH: 对,没有人喜欢爱告状的人。他们就是想显得自己比别人好而已。举个例子来说,如果我考试做弊,你去告诉教授。这样你就是个tattletale,对吗?LL: Right. You certainly wouldn't be right for cheating on the test, but I wouldn't be a very good friend, either.LH: 我当然不会在考试的时候做弊。嗨,那个扔垃圾的家伙已经走了。LL: Yeah, let's go and put the garbage in the trashcan. It's not right to leave that on the ground.LH: 对,把垃圾扔在地上实在不好。我们去把垃圾拣起来扔在垃圾桶里吧。Larry,你真是个有公德心的人。不过,我很好奇,你小时候有没有告过谁的状呀?LL: No, but my little sister was an awful tattletale. Every time I did anything she didn't like, she would run and tell our mother.LH:真有意思,你的老爱到你妈那儿去告你的状。你肯定很顽皮。LL:Not really. She's just a tattletale.******LH: 嘿, Larry, 我倒想听听,你经常到你妈妈那里告你的状,你都怎么反应啊?LL: I would act really sorry and my mom would forgive me immediately. My mom is a pushover, so she rarely punished me.LH: 你好耍赖噢!故意装出很抱歉的样子,让你妈妈很快原谅你。哎,对了,什么是pushover?LL: A pushover is someone who is easy to convince. It also refers to someone who gives in easily.LH: 噢,知道了,pushover就是指很容易相信别人,经常让步的人。就像你,假装认错,你妈就不会处罚你,事情就过去了。对不对?LL: Right. Some people are pushovers because they are really nice and just want to make everyone happy.LH: 对,这种人,pushovers,一般心地善良,总想让大家都高兴。我看的出来你就是这种人。LL: Me? A pushover? You've got to be kidding!LH: 我才不是开玩笑呢!我记得有一次,我们一起去看电影,你想看的电影和我想看的完全不一样,结果我们还是看了我想看的那部电影!LL: Hey, that's just being a good friend. I don't know if you should call me a pushover for that.LH: (Laugh) 好啦!Larry, 我说你是pushover完全没有恶意噢!Pushover是不是有负面的意思?LL: Not necessarily. People are usually pushovers when they're with people whom they care about.LH:没错,让步一般都是为自己喜欢的人让步的。今天李华学到两个常用语。第一个是tattletale, 就是喜欢告状的人。另外一个常用语是pushover,意思是很轻信,或容易让步的人。 /200602/3350
