英语日常口语 7:Paying the rent本单元是关于付房租的对话Helen: Oh no, it's that time of the month again - time to pay the rent.Tim: Comes round fast enough, doesn't it?Alice: Yeah and I'm so broke just now. I don't know where my money goes. Tim: You need to tighten your belt Alice. Well, I'm fairly flush this month, want me to lend you some cash?Alice: Tim, would you?Tim: Sure, you know me, always willing to help a damsel in distress. There's only one small catch......Vocabulary:Rent (n, uncountable): amount of money you pay (usually every month) to live in a house or flat that belongs to someone elseA damsel in distress (humorous): a young woman who needs help There's a catch: There is a condition (usually something difficult or unpleasant). In this case Tim will lend Alice some money but she has to repay him in a way that he chooses A casino (n): a place where people can gamble (bet money) on the result of games with cards, dice or machinesGreyhound racing (n): a spectator sport where people watch dogs race and bet money on the result本单元的语言点是关于钱的习语,有时习语很难通过字面单词猜出其意义,看看下面的习语,你能猜出他们是什么意思吗?Idioms use language metaphorically rather than literally. If you paid 'through the nose' for something, it means you paid too high a price for it (the metaphorical meaning) not that you paid for something with money that came out of the middle of your face (the literal meaning).Idioms are also fixed groups of words so you can't change the wording of an idiom. For example, you can say 'That shop is a real rip off' to describe a shop that overcharges its customers but you can't say 'It's a real tear off'. Idioms - rich and poor:I'm so broke/I'm flat broke.I don't have any money.I don't have a bean.I don't have any money. You need to tighten your belt.You should try to spend less.He's flush (with cash).He's got a lot of money.She's rolling in it.She's very rich. Idioms - expensive and cheap:We really splashed out on our new car.We spent a lot of money on our new car. This dress cost me an arm and a leg.This dress was very expensive. This bag was dirt cheap. This bag wasn't expensive. I got this new top for a song.This blouse was very cheap.I can't believe the price of a cup of coffee here. It's daylight robbery!This cafe charges very high prices for its coffee. /200707/15899VOA流行美语 138: juice/nukeLesson 138 - juice / nukeLarry和李华正在电影院外面等朋友。电影都快开场了,可是朋友还没到。Larry 决定用手机给这个朋友打电话。今天李华会学到两个常用语:juice和nuke.LL: Darn! My cell phone is out of juice. Can I use your cell phone to call Bob and Lisa and find out why they're late?LH: 你的手机怎么啦?Out of juice, juice是果汁。哎噢!该不是你的电话掉到果汁里啦?难怪不能用啦!LL: No, my cell phone is out of juice. "Juice" is slang for "power". I meant that the battery in my phone is out of power.LH: 噢,原来juice在这里是指电池里的电啊!所以out of juice就是没电的意思。既然你的手机没电了,你可以用我的,我昨晚才充过电,so it has plenty of juice.LL: That's fortunate. At least one of us has a functioning phone.LH: 对了,Larry你前些天不是说你的车有毛病吗?现在怎样啦?LL: Yes, my car wouldn't start because the battery was out of juice. I had to go to the mechanic and get a new battery.LH: 原来是车子里的电池也没电啦!看来这juice还真少不了,否则什么也干不了。昨天,我的激光唱机没有电。噢,没有juice了,偏偏我又找不到电池,害得我什么也听不了。LL: Yeah, I hate it when that happens, too. The other day, I was in the middle of typing a report on my laptop, when the battery ran out of juice. I almost lost the whole report.LH: 哇,你可得特别小心电脑的电池呢。如果电脑没电了,你输入的报告还有档案都可能会泡汤。那可就严重了!LL: I know! I've had some awful experiences with that. Fortunately, now computer companies are making laptops with batteries that hold more juice.LH: 就是,现在的电脑用的都是容量比较大的电池,所以打到一半没电的情况比较少了。Larry, 你还是快点儿给他们打电话吧!电影很快就要开始了。******LH: 我真不敢相信Lisa和Bob居然说好了会不来。太糟糕了!LL: Yeah, I agree. Do you still want to go out to dinner? Or do you want to nuke the pizza that's in my fridge and eat that?LH: "Nuke a pizza"? "Nuke"是nuclear核能的简称。哎,Larry,你准备怎么吃那块比萨饼呀?LL: Oh, to nuke something is slang for cooking it in the microwave.LH: 噢,你真吓了我一跳呢!原来to nuke是把东西放进微波炉里加热啊!所以你是说你想把冰箱里那块pizza热来当晚饭吃。LL: Well, it would save some money. I also have some frozen dinners we could nuke. It would be faster than going to a restaurant.LH: 嗯,吃冷冻食品是比去餐馆吃饭是比较快,又便宜,可是我觉得冷冻食品不好吃耶!吃东西还是要吃新鲜的好!LL: My cousin won't eat food that's been nuked at all. She thinks that using a microwave is unhealthy.LH: 真的吗?你表说微波过的食物都不健康。那微波食物真的对身体有害啊?LL: I don't know and I don't want to know. Nuking food is so convenient and quick that I really don't want to give it up.LH: 我知道,微波食物既方便又快速。有时候我实在太忙,没时间做饭,我也是用微波炉来热剩菜剩饭。LL: I hardly ever have time to cook an entire meal. I'm also not a very good cook, so I would probably starve without a microwave.LL:好多男生都不会做饭,也没有兴趣。我看没有微波炉是要饿死的。今天李华学到两个常用语。第一个是juice,也就是电源,电力的意思。 另一个常用语是nuke,是用微波炉加热的意思。 /200602/3358【中文这样说】我的祖母活到了85岁。【英文对比翻译】Chinese Style——My grandmother lived to eighty-five.American Style— My grandmother lived to be eighty-five. /200604/6394

The first job of the federal government is to keep our country safe. And if weve learned anything over the past eight years, its that the Presidents foreign policy is not doing the job. Look no further than: the vanishing red line in Syria, the faulty reset with Russia, the attempt to ;lead from behind; in Libya, followed by the rise of a terrorist safe haven on the Mediterranean Sea. He made a dangerous nuclear deal with Iran. Hes not done enough to take on ISIS. You add all of this up, and what do you see? All across the world, our enemies dont fear us, and our friends dont trust us. The Presidents foreign policy has left a power vacuum, which our rivals are all too happy to fill. So, to say this foreign policy is not making us any safer is – well, an understatement. But we House Republicans need to take action. Its not enough to sit on the sidelines. Its not enough to criticize. We have to propose an alternative. And we have. Were calling it A Better Way. We are showing the American people what we will do in 2017 and beyond if given the opportunity. We developed this plan from the bottom up, hearing from our constituents and working with all the members of our conference. And now were taking our case to the American people. In fact, Im talking to you from a small business in my district that makes security systems for public buildings. As Ive met with people I represent across my district, so many of them have told me that national security is an issue. Its an issue that concerns them the most. A Better Way is our answer to the challenges we face. Our plan includes 67 specific ideas to strengthen our national security. We lay out our four objectives: Keep Americans safe at home, defeat the terrorists, advance Americas interests abroad, and renew our national security tools. We focus a lot of attention on defeating radical Islamist terrorism because rooting out this extremist ideology is crucial to protecting Americans at home and abroad. We also wrote our plan with the understanding that our homeland faces a number of threats from border security to cybersecurity, and with the understanding that new threats will emerge. It renews our friendship with our allies. It makes sure our military and law enforcement officers have the tools they need to complete their missions. It makes sure our veterans receive the care they have earned. It also requires the federal government to work with technology experts, and bring together the best minds in one room to find ways to combat cyber threats. President Reagan famously called for ;peace through strength.; That is still the case today. America will be safe only when we are strong. And I believe our plan will accomplish just that.
