World's rich got richer amid '09 recession: report The rich grew richer last year, even as the world endured the worst recession in decades.A stock market rebound helped the world's ranks of millionaires climb 17 percent to 10 million, while their collective wealth surged 19 percent to trillion, nearly recouping losses from the financial crisis, according to the latest Merrill Lynch-Capgemini world wealth report.Stock values rose by half, while hedge funds recovered most of their 2008 losses, in a year marked by government stimulus spending and central bank easing."We are aly seeing distinct signs of recovery and, in some areas, a complete return to 2007 levels of wealth and growth," Bank of America Corp wealth management chief Sallie Krawcheck said.The fastest growth in wealth took place in India, China and Brazil, some of the hardest hit markets in 2008. Wealth in Latin America and the Asia-Pacific soared to record highs.Asia's millionaire ranks rose to 3 million, matching Europe for the first time, paced by a 4.5 percent economic expansion.Asian millionaires' combined wealth surged 31 percent to .7 trillion, surpassing Europe's .5 trillion.In North America, the ranks of the rich rose 17 percent and their wealth grew 18 percent to .7 trillion.The ed States was home to the most millionaires in -- 2.87 million -- followed by Japan with 1.65 million, Germany with 861,000, and China with 477,000.Switzerland had the highest concentration of millionaires: nearly 35 for every 1,000 adults.Yet as portfolios bounced back, investors remained wary after a collapse that erased a decade of stock gains, fueled a contraction in the global economy and sent unemployment soaring.The report, based on surveys with more than 1,100 wealthy investors with 23 firms, found that the rich were well served by holding a broad range of investments, including commodities and real estate.Vocabulary:recoup: to get back an amount of money that you have spent or lost 收回(成本);弥补(亏损)hedge fund: an investment fund that invests large amounts of money using methods that involve a lot of risk 对冲基金portfolio: a list of the financial assets held by an individual or a bank or other financial institution 有价券,投资组合背单词 — 装英语词汇201006/106835。

Every so often, however, that regular motion is interrupted. Think of what happens when you stir that bubbling soup. It takes a few minutes for things to settle down and the regular pattern of bubbling to resume. That’s probably what happens inside earth. Something–maybe nothing more than naturally occurring variations in the process– disrupts the otherwise regular flow of metals in our planet. This shuts off the magnetic field for a while. Eventually, things start bubbling away again and the magnetic field returns. When it comes back on, one end will be north and one end will be south. Whether or not they were aligned that way before the disturbance is a matter of chance.【生词注释】interrupt v.打断settle down 平静下来resume v. 重新开始variation n.变化align vi.排行disturbance n.扰乱尽管如此,常规的运动不时被打断。想想当你捅破热汤中的气泡时,发生的状况。得需要几分钟热汤才能平静袭来,正常的冒泡形式才会重新开始。那也可能是地球内部的模式。有些物质——很可能是是自然变化过程中的物质——打断了地球内部金属的正常流动。这导致磁场失效了一段时间。最终,冒泡过程重新开始,磁场重新出现。当磁场重现出现时,一端是北极,另一段是南极。在磁场被阻断钱它们是否按照那种方式派别完全是随机的。201111/160342。

Newser's accident of mirthNewser Charlotte Green descends into a fit of giggles while announcing a death on Radio 4's Today programme.Descending into a fit of the giggles whilst trying to deliver serious news is a newser's nightmare, but that's what happened to B radio's Charlotte Green today. She fell victim to that performers' enemy "corpsing". The term was first used by theatre folk, but today touched that bastion of middle-class values Radio 4. Here is our arts reporter Stephanie West. In the world of comedy, corpsing has always been an acceptable hazard, for Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, who practically lived to reduce each other to a hip, it was a moment the audience's waited for. But today, unplanned giggles did for the composure of Radio 4. The sedate voice of Charlotte Green, voted the most attractive on the air waves by Radio Times' listeners, was reduced to a strangulated whimper, after she heard the earliest recording of a human voice played in her news bulletin. "The Award winning screen writer Abby Mann has died at the age of 80,he won an Academy Award in 1961 for "Judgment at Nuremberg", Abby, excuse me,sorry....Abby Mann also....." The fight the final news item was about the death of an award-winning screen writer, only added to the horror, but she struggled on for more than 30 seconds more. "....for a film which featured....." Judging by an audible man snort and news, one of the anchors had his head in his hands, we understand Jim Knocktie and Edward Sterton were rendered unable to help. It's ten minutes past eight. Corpsing is Thespian slang for murdering a scene with uncontrollable laughter, but there was sympathy at THE KING`S HEAD Theater in Islington today, where the artistic director described corpsing as contagious as yawning, with a remedy that would surely only have exacerbated Charlotte's woes. One of the techniques to stop yourself from corpsing, if you feel a corpse is coming, obviously you look down, you do anything you can not to corpse and not to pass the contagion on, and one thing you can do is swallow really hard or you can pinch yourself, or you can you know pull your finger, anything to distract your mind from the laughter that's about to erupt from you. And while surrendering to uncontrollable mirth might look like fun as illustrated in Rikky's guy to corpsing here, many performers say, they regard it as a weakness. And it's not till you are there and the camera is switched on ,and something is said and it set you off and you can't stop. "Give my pen." "Yes,take it."bastion: n. If a system or organization is described as a bastion of a particular way of life, it is seen as being important and effective in defending that way of lifecorpsing: n. Corpsing is a theatrical slang term used to describe when an actor breaks character during a scene by laughing or by causing another cast member to laughstrangulated: adj. if someone's voice sounds strangulated, they sound as though their throat is being pressedwhimper: n.A feeble intermittent cry expressive of fear, pain, or distress, a low complaining sound.exacerbate:v.If something exacerbates a problem or bad situation, it makes it worse. contagion:n.If something exacerbates a problem or bad situation, it makes it worse. 200811/54678。

EU Commission President Barroso Unveils Plan to Stem Future Financial Crises欧盟委员会提议进行深入金融改革 The European Union's executive arm has proposed far-reaching financial reforms to help prevent future financial crises, like the one now pummelling Europe and the rest of the world. European officials hope to put the reforms in place next year.欧洲联盟的行政机构欧盟委员会提议进行深入的金融改革,以防目前这种困扰欧洲以及世界其他地区的金融危机在未来重演。欧盟官员希望能够在明年落实金融改革措施。The reforms proposed by the European Commission, the European Union executive arm, include a tough, new, cross-border monitoring system for banks and other financial institutions.欧盟委员会提议的改革措施包括针对和其他金融机构设立一个严格的、新的跨境监控系统。If approved, the reforms would set up two new bodies. The first, a risk council made up of financial bankers and financial regulators, would serve as a sort of early warning system to prevent future financial crises.假如改革计划获得批准,欧盟将成立两个新的机构。首先是一个风险理事会,由界人士和金融管理人员共同组成,其职能是发挥某种早期预警作用,防止将来再次发生金融危机。The European Commission has also proposed a new steering group aimed to ensure European financial rules are applied consistently across the 27-member European Union.欧盟委员会还提议成立一个新的指导小组,目的是确保欧盟的金融法规在欧盟27个成员国中都得到贯彻执行。The commission wants the reforms to be in place by 2010, two years earlier than first proposed. At a press conference in Brussels, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said it is critical to move swiftly.欧盟委员会要求这些改革措施在2010年到位,比先前提议的时间表提前两年。在布鲁塞尔举行的记者会上,欧盟委员会主席巴罗佐表示,迅速采取行动是至关重要的。"Now is the time for action. It will be now or never If we cannot reform the financial sector, financial supervision when we have a real crisis, when will we reform? I am determined to reform the financial supervision in Europe. I can only hope the member states will follow us," Barroso said.他说:“现在就是采取行动的时候。如果不是现在,那就没指望了。假如我们不能在面对一场真正危机的时候改革金融行业和金融监管体制,更待何时?我有决心改革欧洲的金融监管体制。我只希望各个成员国能够跟上我们的步伐。”The financial crisis has plunged European countries into major recessions and many workers have been laid off. Still, Barroso said that millions of dollars of money spent on stimulus measures were beginning to pay off.当前这场金融危机使欧洲国家陷入严重的经济衰退,很多工人失去了工作。不过,巴罗佐指出,政府投入巨资刺激经济已经开始见效了。"The measures we have taken to tackle the crisis are starting to work. But fiscal stimulus by definition is temporary. The real economy needs ethical, financial markets if it is to prosper," he said.他说:“我们为了抑制危机而采取的措施开始发挥作用。然而财政刺激归根结蒂只是暂时性的。要想让真实经济恢复繁荣,就需要有规范的金融市场。”Barroso hopes the EU members will sign off on the proposals when their leaders meet for a summit in June. 巴罗佐希望欧盟各国领导人在六月份举行峰会时都能赞成这些金融改革提议。05/71769。

But you’re still smacking your foot directly on the ground, without any padding. Wouldn’t this lead to more foot injuries? Possibly. And, of course, it takes time to develop calluses on your feet thick enough to make barefoot running comfortable. And I suppose running in cold weather could be a problem. So like most things in science, there’s more than one side to this story. Running barefoot may have certain advantages, but there are some pitfalls, too.【生词注释】smack v.啪的一声甩(或扔等)padding n.衬垫callus n.老茧,皮肤硬厚处pitfall n.隐患,易犯的错误但是光脚跑步你仍然是将脚直接猛烈地接触地面,中间没有任何衬垫。这会不会导致脚受伤?当然很有可能,而且要花上一段时间脚才能生出足够厚的老茧让你舒地跑步。我猜在寒冷的天气中跑步也是个难题。像大多数科学中的事情一样,这个说法不只有一面。光脚跑步有一定的优势,但是也有些隐患。201110/159382。

Seinfeld was one of the funniest TV shows ever. Pretty much everyone loved it. Everyone, that is, in the ed States. And probably in many other developed countries, too. Because, after all, anyone engaged in the daily grind would connect with the showrsquo;s absurd take on the odd, quirky details of modern life. But what about people in developing countries? Or what if we were to visit a tribe deep in the Amazon that lived a more or less Stone Age existence. If we plopped them down in front of Seinfeld, would they get it? Would They Get It? Probably not. But they would understand that something funny is going on. Why? Because theyrsquo;d hear laughter on the soundtrack.赛恩菲尔德是有史以来最有趣的电视节目之一。几乎人人都喜爱这个节目。那就是在美国的每个人。可能在其他许多发达国家,也有人喜欢这个节目。因为,毕竟,每天从事单调工作的大众都会和现代生活的离奇、古怪细节有联系。但发展中国家的人们喜欢那个节目吗?或者,如果我们访问一个亚马逊深处的部落,他们过着或多或少石器时代的生活。如果我们将它们放在赛恩菲尔德面前,他们会怎么做呢?他们会理解吗?很可能理解不了。不过,他们会明白有趣的事要发生。为什么呢?因为他们想听到电影配乐中的笑声。166468。

Is Bush an 'Idiot'Is the President of the ed States, George W. Bush, an idiot? Scarborough Country asks the forbidden question. They look at his inability to speak correctly, not at his inability to lead correctly, however. Of course the real question is, is the Republican Party full of idiots because they nominated the sucker, and continue to blindly follow his crap? Is the US full of idiots, because they elected the sucker and have not begun demanding better until recently?First, former pop star Linda Ronstadt, you remember,"You're no good, you know, you're, you are no good, baby, you're no good. Well, Linda has joined the long list of celebrities and other public figures who berated President Bush for his lack of intelligence. But it is not just singers and movie stars who are suggesting that George Bush's mental weakness is damaging America‘s credibility at home and abroad.Ronstadt said this earlier: “The Dixie Chicks said they were embarrassed he was from Texas...Well I‘m embarrassed George Bush is from the ed States [The president] is an idiot.He's enormously incompetent, on both sides, on both of the domestic and international scenes.”That is, no doubt, a sentiment that is shared in some of the capitals of our friends and foes alike. Maybe because the president has such a long history of public gaffes, but is that evidence that George W. Bush is stupid or just inarticulate.Take a look, and decide for yourself.GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I think tide turning, see, as I remember, I was raised in the desert, but tides cannot turn—it is easy to see a tide turned. Did I say those words?No question that the enemy has tried to sp sectarian violence.And they use violence as a tool to do that.We need an energy bill that encourages consumption. Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people. And neither do we; we must never stop thinking about how best to defend our country.I am the decider, and I decide what is best.The ed States of America is engaged in a war against an extremist group of folks.Families is where our nation finds hope; where wings take dream.If you don't stand up for anything, you don't stand up for – anything. If you don't stand for something, you don't stand for anything. Fool me once, shame on you—it fooled me—we can‘t get fooled again.In my State of the—my State of the Union—our state, my speech to the nation, whatever you want to call it.At the high school level and find out that the literacy level of our children are appalling.I hear there is rumors on the Internets that we are gonna have a draft.You are working hard to put food on your family.I know that human being and fish can coexist peacefully.Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign. I mean, you're a—you're a -you have been given sovereignty, and you are viewed as—a sovereign entity. And, therefore, the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities. They (misunderstand...)underestimate the compassion of our country. I think they (misunderstood) underestimated the will and determination of the commander in chief, too.02/63031。

Therefore, he is confident of a successful World Expo."I believe the Shanghai World Expo will be successful, spectacular and unforgettable."

They appreciate all the recognition they receive. The best way to see Norway is from the air. Sightseeing flights are available from all the major cities,enabling visitors to see the attractions of the country at their most spectacular. Fjords were originally glacially carved valleys. But as the ice melted,these 1 were filled by rising sea water,creating these dramatic landscapes. The Hardanger fjord is the second longest in Norway and with its glacier at the top,the most picturesque. Only from this height can you truly appreciate the enormous scale of the fjord and glacier. This vast natural formation is one of many in Norway but it's a rare sight you'll never forget. The glacier at Hardanger is actually formed of 3 separate glaciers which together measure 220 square kilometers. In the last few years,walking on glaciers has become extremely popular amongst locals and tourists alike. A simple tour to the glacier Bodalsbreen in the area around stream lasts about 5 hours and begins with an hour hiking through the Josterdalsbreen National Park. The Bodalsbreen is part of this national park. The ice-cold crystal-clear water melted from the glacier form 2 that flow into the valley. This is Norway's wilderness at its best. The glacial valleys create some extraordinary sights. It's the first time this tourist has attempted to walk on ice. Special knowledge isn't necessary. All he needs is the right outdoor gear---the most important thing for any trip onto the ice. 注释: ① glacier n. 1. 冰河, 冰川 ②Josterdalsbreen National Park: Jostedalsbreen国家公园是挪威在国家公园,包括欧洲大陆,Jostedalsbreen上最大的冰川。公园始建于1991年10月25日的皇家法令,然后在1998年,它已扩大到西北。现在该公园占地1,310平方千米,占地约800平方公里的园区的冰川。 课后题目: 学习完后,你能告诉我文章中空缺的单词吗?201109/155569。

British women take four times as long to get y for work on Mondays than on Fridays, while men also put less effort into their appearance as the week goes on, according to research by retail chain Debenhams.On average, women spend 76 minutes getting y on Mondays -- with almost a third of that spent on their hair -- 18 minutes on make-up, 16 minutes trying on different combinations of clothes and the rest taken up by showering and washing.This is reduced to 40 minutes on Tuesdays and continues to decline as the week goes on, falling to 19 minutes on Fridays."Make the most of looking at your work colleagues on a Monday morning, because that's as good as they're going to get," said Debenhams spokesman Ed Watson.But it is not just women who put more effort into making a good impression on work colleagues at the start of the week.Men too let their standards suffer with each passing day, the survey of 1,000 customers by Debenhams' personal shopper network found. They take 28 minutes on Monday, half that on Tuesday and 11 for the rest of the week."It's clear that most men can only pay attention to their appearance for a maximum of two days before opting for an acceptable level of dishevelment," said Watson."Women try to keep their dress standards higher for longer, but by the time Friday comes, they too have gone down a line of least resistance."Vocabulary:make the most of: to use to greatest advantage; utilize fully(充分利用,尽情享受)dishevelment:the state or quality of being disheveled(蓬乱,凌乱)a line of least resistance:最容易的途径;最便当的方法背单词 — 装英语词汇201006/106405。
