West Virginia Chemical Spill Threatens Health of ResidentsNumerous people have reported symptoms of illness, as officials issue warning on tap water.Meanwhile significant new developments this morning in a chemical spill that has forced 300,000 people to stop drinking water out of the taps in their homes overnight, we learnt that more than 700 people have reported symptoms of illness and 70 have gone to the hospital. A’s Susie Sony is on the scene in western Virginia, Susie.Good morning, Dan, a federal investigation is now underway into the chemical spill into the water here which has put life on hold for so many people.This morning, thousands in West Virginia feeling the effects of Thursday morning’s chemical spill, more than 700 people in the Charleston area have called poison control centers, complaining of nausea, vomiting, headaches and rashes, 70 people went to local hospitals. For the 300,000 area residents, it’s been a frustrating day and a half. Overnight, FEMA trucks bring in more than a million liters of clean water for people to drink, bathe, cook and clean.I guess it really upsets, because we’re basically just trying to find water, just so we can be able to you know, take a shower, have something to drink.The crisis began when a toxic chemical used to process coal leaked out of a 48,000 gallon storage tank. The chemical overflowed into the Elk River, just north of a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for the region.Do not drink it, do not cook with it, do not wash clothes in it, do not take a bath in it.The advisory set off a run on stores, people emptying shelves of water bottles across the region. But some people still concerned after using the water before the warning.I brushed my teeth and washed my face with it, so that kind of scares me.This incident is extremely unfortunate, unanticipated, and we’re very, very sorry for the disruption to everybody’s daily life that this incident has caused.While the tainted water is not considered deadly some people have had stronger symptoms or reactions to it than others. Residents are still advised to stay away from the water and there’s no word yet on when it will be safe for drinking. Breonna,It was such a frightening situation, Susanna, thanks to you. /201401/273089In the calm of a summer morning在一个宁静的夏日清晨a baby sea dragon, with yolk sac still attached, is born.黏着卵黄囊的海龙宝宝出生了The weed bed shelters older dragons已能自行觅食的较大海龙that are aly able to feed themselves.栖息在海藻之间Although these dragons were well cared for by their father,尽管父亲把这些海龙照顾得很好now they must find their own way in the world.但它们到世上闯荡的时候到了There are fish, however,但有些鱼类 为幼鱼提供的安全庇护which provide their young with a safe refuge for far longer.要长久得多The south western Pacific.西南太平洋A convict fish and its something of a marine architect.这是一条白条锦鳗鳚 算是一种海洋建筑师Underground it has created a labyrinth of tunnels.它在地底打造出一座地道迷宫This adult never ventures out of its burrow,这条成鱼从未离开洞穴what it eats is a mystery.它到底吃什么,令人费解But it doesnt live here alone.但穴居在这里的不只它一个At another entrance faces peer out.在另一个入口 好几张脸向外凝望Juvenile convict fish.幼年的白条锦鳗鳚Unlike their parent, the youngsters are not tied to the burrow.和父母不同的是 幼鱼不会整天躲在洞里And as they start to emerge, a trickle becomes a flood of fish.从洞穴冒出来 稀稀落落几条鱼变成一大群201308/251679In the soccer tribe, what would Mourinho be?在足球部落中,穆里尼奥会是什么角色?He would be a witch doctor.他会是个巫医。重点词汇:tribe 部落例句:Name one american indian tribe in the united states.请说出一个美国印第安人部落的名字。201407/309765

Hey everyone, this is Stephane Fouche大家好,我是Stephane FoucheSo, I wanted to share a story with you guys首先想跟大家分享一个故事The story is of me, traveling fromJapanin order to make it toChina我从日本坐飞机来中国的故事So flying Korean Air, I had a layover in Busan我做的是韩国航空,在釜山转机So usually, I have layovers in Seoul when I’m flying toChina一般我来中国要转机都是在首尔This time, Busan, and it’s a ten hour layover这次是在釜山,而且转机要等十个小时I told myself that since I had some work to do那刚好呢,我还有一些工作要做I would just stay at the airport, and finish doing my work所以我打算就呆在机场,把我的工作做完I arrive at Busan, and the lady at the counter tells me that但是到了釜山机场之后,前台的一位女士拦住了我“Oh, this is not a 24 hour airport”她跟我说,“您不能在这个机场过夜”I tell myself, what do you mean?我当时就懵了“Sorry sir, we are going to have to escort you outside”然后她跟我说,“不好意思,先生,我们现在要把您送出去”So here am I, in Busan当时的情况很窘迫I can’t withdraw money because the ATMs are closed釜山机场附近的自动取款机都已经关了I can’t change the money that I have on me我不能换我带来的钱Because all the banks and all the Travelex,money changing businesses因为所有的和换汇公司什么的All of them were closed所有这些都关门了And I’ve never been to Busan before再加上我从来没有到过釜山I start to panic我开始焦虑I have no hotel reservations, it’s cold outside, so I just started to look at the map我没有来得及订酒店,外面很冷,无奈之下我只能打开手上的地图找能去的地方Luckily, this was my third time inKorea幸运的是,这是我第三次来韩国To travel in Korean there is a small little card, it’s called T-money, T-pac在韩国,有一个叫做T钱或者T包的卡What you can do is you use it, you tap, and you get in the subway system你可以在坐地铁的时候刷这个卡(有点像北京的市政交通一卡通)I had some money left我的卡上还有一些钱So I looked at the map, and I asked myself, which is the biggest station around the airport所以我开始在地图上找,看机场附近最大的公交站是哪个And it was Sasang发现是釜山的沙上区Tapped, got into the system, made into Sasang, and gotout然后我用这张小卡刷进了地铁站,做到了沙上区So I’m just looking around, looking for a bank出来之后我就开始在附近找looking for somewhere where I can change the money that I have能够换我手上的现金or withdraw money from my bank accounts或者是从我的账号取钱的地方And I still cannot find one但是一直都找不到And I look into my wallet, and I tell myself, I have my credit card这个时候我翻了翻我的钱包,发现我还有我的信用卡And I called the people saying that I’ll be inKorea, so let me try to see if it works之前的人说过这个卡在韩国的一些地方是可以用的,所以我准备试试看运气So I start walking around and I saw a lot of hotels and motels所以我就开始在附近找旅馆I didn’t know which one to choose我不知道选哪个You had La Vie, Jazzy luxury motel附近有个叫生活旅馆的,还有个叫爵士旅馆So I just went to the one that looks decent我就随便找了个看起来不错的So I went in, and as I got into the hotel there is this big massive fish tank进去之后看到有这么一个特别大的鱼缸The name of the motel was luxury motel然后这个旅馆的名字叫奢侈旅馆It was quite luxurious for a motel in that area跟附近其他的比起来,的确看起来挺高端的So I passed them my card and I’m like我把我的卡给了他们,然后问道“Do you guys take credit card?”“你们收信用卡么?”And they go, “which one?”他们问,“那一种?”I say “do you guys take Visa?”我回复,“Visa卡收么”And they say, “no problem at all”他们说,“一点问题都没有”So I pass my credit card to them然后我把我的信用卡给了他们It’s this, or I sleep outside如果他们不收的话,当晚我可能就要露宿街头了And they swipe it into the machine当他们把我的卡刷进去And they say, ”mister, could you please sign?”然后让我签字的时候At that point I felt relieved我才真正的松了一口气I was like finally, I can find a place to stay因为终于找到一个能住的地方了I have enough money on my train card, in order to take the subway back to the airport而且我的T卡上还有足够的钱,能够让我做地铁回机场And I can work during the night, and finally make it into Beijing the next day我可以晚上在旅馆做些工作,然后第二天顺利到达北京So, as you probably guessed it那么咱们今天的话题也跟我这个故事有关The story today has to do with payment methods今天的话题是付系统If we go down the list we have人们有很多的付方法Credit cards, debit cards, cash, checks, bank transfer, money order, you can name it信用卡,储蓄卡,现金,票,转账,汇票,等等There is a lot of them有很多种方法We humans as a society have created complex and convoluted ways人类社会在进化过程中创造了各种各样的付方法From bartering, cash, and now electronic payment to complete one simple task从以物易物,现金,到现在的在线付You aly guessed it, it’s paying for goods and services都是为了交换或者获取商品或者务So why do we need credit cards?那先说信用卡,为什么要用信用卡呢?Well, I have three reasons for you right now有三个重要的原因One is that credit cards are convenient首先是信用卡很便捷Instead of having to carry a lot of cash你身上不用带很多的现金People are always guaranteed to have the amount they will need人们基本上想花的大部分钱都可以用信用卡解决If you have a five thousand dollar credit card如果你有可以透五千刀的信用卡It’s like having five thousand dollars in Cash that you can use这跟身上带了五千刀现金没什么区别The other one is, you have points and cashbacks另外一个原因呢,你可以或者积分和回馈So the more you use it, the more points you get你用的越多,积分就越多You can use it to buy stuff online, and you can use it to travel for cheap airlines and so on然后用这些积分换取东西或者是便宜的机票It’s like a game, you want to have more points, so you use your credit cards for everything这种体系就像玩游戏一样,你想要获得更多的分数,所以你就会什么都用信用卡The last one, and this is something that saved my life when I was inKorea最后一个原因,也就是我在韩国的时候把我救了的原因For emergency situations信用卡可以用来救急So this sort of relate to the fact that credit cards are convenient这根信用卡的便捷也有关系The more places it’s accepted the better it is信用卡被接受的地方越多越好because you can feel comfortable that if you don’t因为这样即使你身上没有带够钱have enough cash in your pocket, you can always rely on your credit card你也不会害怕去太陌生的地方Now looking at it from a different perspective现在我们从另外一个方面来看From the store owner, they either love it, or they hate it对于你使用信用卡的商店来说,他们对信用卡要么爱,要么恨The reason why is that, using the cards首先为什么恨呢It cuts into their margins因为信用卡会从消费中抽成Because the store owners are charged a fee when their customer is using them当人们用信用卡消费时,商店主要交一部分费用So visa is going to get a little portion, master card, union pay, JCB, whatever the company is所以不管是Visa还是银联什么的,他们会挣一部分钱On the other hand, if you have a card, you don’t see how much money you have in your wallet同时,如果你用信用卡,你并不能明显的感觉到你花了多少钱So you just go, put it on the card, put it on the card不管你买什么,都是用信用卡So you just keep on spending and spending and spending那么你就更容易一直不停的花钱Which is great, you go on shopping, you go on eating and you spend a lot more money这样你在去购物的时候,或者在吃饭的时候就会花更多钱So for these restaurants这对商店主来说肯定就是好事了Having a credit card can actually help them make more money从这个角度讲,接受信用卡能让他们争更多钱even though they have to pay a fee to visa and the rest尽管他们要从中付一小部分费用Nonetheless, not all the cards are the same, there is such a variety of them然后,并不是所有的卡都一样So some of them are harder to get, and some are easier to get有些卡要获得很容易,有些就很麻烦Your debit card from your bank account, that’s the easiest you can get在的储蓄卡是最容易获得的种类But speaking from my experiences, in theed States那从我个人的经历来讲,在美国Some cards require to have a really high income, and really really high income很多卡需要你有很多很多的钱才能够办理Other cards are almost impossible to get unless you have an impeccable credit score还有些卡,必须要有完美的信用记录才能够使用The card that I would like to focus today is a special one今天我们要提一个特别的卡which is called American Express Black Card这个卡叫做美国运通公司黑卡What’s so special about this card?为什么这个卡特别呢?So the more money you make, the higher your limit, 2000, 5000首先,你挣得钱越高,你信用卡的额度就越高The Black Card has no limit, seriously, no limit黑卡是没有额度的,或者说,额度是无限的You can literally buy a Ferrari with it, an Audi with it你可以用它买一台法拉利,或者一台奥迪You can buy whatever you want because there is no limit用它什么都可以买It’s accepted almost everywhere in the world基本上在世界上的任何地方都可以用这张卡And the people who use it, are actually the celebrities and the rich一般只有明星和特别有钱的人才能使用它,因为你必须要被邀请In order to keep the card, the person who owns it has to spend a minimum要保留这张卡,一个人必须要每年保持使用这张卡消费A minimum of 250,000 dollars every single year而且是每年至少花掉25万刀So imagine you are at your next business meeting and you are trying to impress your customer所以假设你要跟人谈生意,想要给人靠谱的感觉And you whip out that card, you put on the table and pay with it想象一下拿出这张卡并用它付It leaves a really good impression这会给人非常好的印象The higher the qualifications for a card, the higher it shows the status of the card owner获得一张卡的门槛越高,卡主的身份象征就越高Such high status of cards are akin to having literally a Ferrari in your wallet拿着这些卡给人带来的身份象征,就像是钱包里放了一辆法拉利If you look at it, luxury cars, mansions, you name it不管是高端的轿车还是别墅They are a way for celebrities, and of course the rich, to brag其实都是明星们和有钱人用来炫耀的资本You want to show to the world what you are capable你要让这个世界看到你能做什么You want to show your power, how much money you have, how much you can do你的权利,你有多少钱,你的能力范围If you are going back toChinaand we are taking the example of cars比如说举个在中国的例子You have the Audi, it’s a favorite car sought after by the rich大家就会很喜欢奥迪车And you now have the Red Flag, which is a symbol of high status in Chinese society另外还有中国专属的“红旗”轿车,也意味着很高的身份especially high status in the government尤其是政府里专用的那种It seems simple right? Just what a card can do, just what a little card in your wallet can do所以,不要小看这一张卡,他的意义可大着呢So bring it back to payment methods, and credit cards specifically让我们回到付体系,以及信用卡The question that I have is, which method do you use to pay your bill, do you still carry cash?我想问问大家,你们一般是怎么付的?你还带很多现金吗?Do you have a debit card? Is it union pay? Visa? What’s that little symbol on it?你们用储蓄卡吗?是银联的吗?还是Visa卡?他又有什么象征呢?201407/308829

Where the reefs meet deeper waters, upwelling currents carry nutrients to the surface.在暗礁与深水的交接处,上涌的水流携带大量营养元素至表层水。Reef fish swim out to gorge themselves on the resulting food, in turn attracting larger predatory fish to the reefs. Trevally prowl in dense packs.珊瑚鱼游出巢穴狼吞虎咽,当有掠食鱼类出现便返回巢穴,他们以密集的队列巡游海底。Giant rays sweep in on graceful wings to hoover up the remaining plankton, which also attracts the king of fish.巨鳐挥扫着优美的鳍翅来吸食周围残余的浮游生物,这些浮游生物同时也吸引了鱼中霸王。 注:视频如无法播放,请刷新 /201410/335802

The Dai give thanks for the rivers and fertile lands which have nurtured their culture.傣族人感恩养育了傣族文化的河流以及肥沃的土地。Though to some it might seem just an excuse for the biggest water fight of all time.或许这看上去只是为了打上一场大水仗的借口。Dai lives are changing as towns get bigger and modernize but the Water Splashing Festival is still celebrated by all.随着小镇的发展以及现代化 傣族人的生活正发生着改变,泼水节依旧是众所周知的The rivers which lie at the heart of Dai life and culture flow from the distant mountains of Tibet, southward through central Yunnan in great parallel gorges.著名的傣族节日,河流穿越了傣族人生活与习俗的心脏地带,发源于西藏遥远的山脉之中,河水向南流经了宏伟的平行峡谷中的云南中部。Lying at the far eastern end of the Himalayas, the Hengduan mountains form Yunnans northern border with Tibet. Kawakarpo, crown of the Hengduan range, is a site of holy pilgrimage.头枕着遥远的喜马拉雅山脉东部的末端横断山脉构成了滇北的边界并与西藏相交。卡瓦格峰是横断山脉之上的王冠 也是圣洁朝圣者旅途的一站。The Dai now live in the borders of tropical Vietnam and Laos, but their legends tell of how their ancestors came here by following the rivers from mountain lands in the cold far north.傣族人现在居住在与越南以及老挝接壤的热带地区,他们的传说讲述了先辈是怎样来到这儿的从寒冷而又遥远的北方山区顺流而下。Yet, its formidable peak remains unconquered. Yunnans mountains are remote, rugged and inaccessible.然而 她那令人敬畏的顶点至今未被征。云南的山不但遥远而且崎岖。 /201404/284689
