Cindy Crawford Goes Eco for H2OSupermodel Cindy Crawford fights for clean water with Pur reusable bottlesI’m Hilarie Barsky for Good Morning America, now my guest is Cindy Crawford. Happy Pre-Mothers Day. oh, thank you, yeah, great.Do your kids do anything special? Er, I’m sure I will be getting some object made out of clay. Yeah, I actually, I saw them working on it last week when I was volunteering at school, and they were like "you’re not supposed to be seen". And I was like, "Ok, I don’t see it, but yes, I know I’m getting a clay hand in fact. They’re six and eight. Yes.And they have made you eco-friendly in a way. Well, I think as soon as you become a mother, you start having more concern about the planet that you are bringing children, you know, to live on. But also the school that they go to is very environmentally aware, and it’s just a big part of the curriculum there, and it’s, it's kind of shown me that I need to pay more attention to it and we’ve learned from each other, you know, like we go art school, there is a beach clean-up every year and we all go, we do it together. And I think that they, if they saw me wasting plastic or whatever, they would say something, it’s kinda like smoking, you kown, how now, if you, if anyone smokes the 5-year-old, it's like, mom, don't, I mean I don’t smoke, but I've seen kids will... (yes, sure) My, for instance, my mother smokes, and my daughter is just so mad at her. (Really?) "how I told grandma to stop?". But it’s same with wasting plastic or, you know, running, you know, they know, turn off the water when you’re not, when you’re brushing your teeth, like, they don’t just leave it run. They aly know that it's... Wow! They’re just so savvy. But I think, I think that's just, they just makes us seem like old-timeies that we don't, that we had to learn that, they’re just growing up in the world with that is the way it is. And tell us you have developed this reusable water bottle. Well, I teamed up with pure water filtration which is, er, they make water filters for home use. We/ teamed up to make reusable aluminum bottles. We called it “thirsty for change”. And even I started just myself, like, OK, I’m not gonna use plastic water bottles at home, I started just but easy. And I stopped six water bottles a day, six plastic water bottles which is over 2000 a year. I mean, it’s, and so, I thought, wow, and then my kids see me doing it, my husband sees me doing it, and other people who’re at my house. I just have one another picture, sitting out, and have a room temp warn, and I have one fridge, it's cold. And that’s what I give people now. And then, when you make one small change like that, you are like, well, what else can I do, it’s, it's empowering to do little changes like that. What is interesting is you said that I threw out some bottles of water this morning and put them into the recyclable bin in my apartment building,(Right.) I couldn’t believe how many bottles I threw out. It’s like 50 billion water bottles, I think, a year that we use in America, and only less than 15% are recycled. So that’s 86% are unrecycled. And you know, besides the financial implication, that plastic is made from petroleum, from oil. And I think that the numbers on that were something like, if, if we didn’t use, if Americans didn’t use all the plastic bottles, it would fuel 100,000 cars for one year. (It’s incredible.) And when you think about that, and just, and the cars, because the part/ of the cost of bottled water is the bottle that we throw out. And also, you know, there're a lot of health concerns about when those water bottles are heated up if you leave it in your car. Yeah, we were talking about that. Sure.Just like, just getting into the water, I mean the aluminum does not leach anything into the water. Plus, I mean, I think New York, everyone says the drinking water here is good, right? It's great.But where they test it is at the plant. It, and that's, sometimes, it’s going through very old pipes to actually get to your apartment. So even though, it might taste good. Sure.There's stuff that you might not see. (Sure) And when you filter water into pure water, it’s a three times filter, that’s a triple filtration system, and it actually tastes great. And you know that you’re not getting any lead or any the other, you know, things that could be lurking in old, very old pipes. 01/60548。

For centuries, nomads and traders have made their way here. George is determined to follow in their footsteps. There is a timelessness about this place. And desert ghosts seem to haunt the hills. But that's not the wail of lost souls echoing through the cliffs. George is drawn deeper and deeper into the canyon by the sound of bellowing camels. It's a world-class beautiful place and all the camels are communicating. You could hear their voices echoing off the walls. It's kind of like being in a, in a cathedral. This is Gilt Arshell, a water pool visited by the ancients and a kind of grand central station for nomads and their camels. Gilters are like highway rest stops for those who travel in the desert. Here they can fill their goatskins with water, swap news and rest their animals. This wind-scoured canyon catches and holds rainfall like a barrel. Water in the desert is a rare gift and the much-trafficked reservoir is opaque with use. They're not really going to tell you about the peril of the walk through the water that's black with the dung of 10,000 camels. There are other reasons to watch your step when wading through these dark waters. Reasons that have teeth: there are crocodiles here, another vestige of a wetter time. Unlike their much larger cousins along the Nile, these crocs are only five feet long and at least for now, not very aggressive. George and Dan count only 6, though there may be a few more around. It's a mystery how such a small population manages to survive here. This is very strange seeing these pre-historic creatures that are, are trapped there like there, stuck on a little desert island if you will. In the desert, the islands are the water. And they are just got trapped there by the time. Later, in the upper reaches of the narrow canyon, George gets another surprise---cave art from thousands of years ago. Who were these ancient people? What were their lives like? You, when you are sitting there, you know you are sitting in exactly the same place as people did three, four, five thousand years ago. You don't know what they saw at their cave, but you can see what their impressions of that world were on the walls behind you. It's kind of like a window into an ancient dream.12/92772。

Obama: No One Country Can Fix Economic Crisis奥巴马和布朗淡化经济分歧 U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown are calling for global unity as world leaders gather in London for an emergency economic summit. The two leaders downplayed differences on steps to reverse the current economic slide. 就在20国集团领导人汇集伦敦,准备出席紧急经济峰会之际,美国总统奥巴马和英国首相布朗呼吁全球齐心协力应对危机。两位领导人还试图淡化他们在扭转经济下滑的具体做法上存在的分歧。The president says no one country can fix the economic crisis. 奥巴马总统说,任何国家都无法单匹马化解经济危机。Speaking just hours before the start of the G20 meeting of major economies, Mr. Obama stressed the need for all participants to seek common ground. 在20国集团峰会即将召开的几个小时前,奥巴马强调与会各国求同存异的重要性。"I am absolutely confident that this meeting will reflect enormous consensus about the need to work together to deal with these problems," said Mr. Obama. 他说,“我绝对有信心,这次会议将反映出与会各国在合作解决经济问题方面存在的巨大共识。”Tension precedes summit startBut there are signs of tension, as the G20 summit prepares to begin its work in London. Some countries are blaming the ed States for sparking the economic crisis through the deregulation of its financial scene - a move that led to a credit crunch and sparked an economic recession. 但就在20国集团领导人准备步入会场的时候,紧张气氛仍然存在。一些国家指责美国对金融行业监管不力,导致信贷紧缩和衰退,进而酿成全面经济危机。The president says the ed States has made mistakes, but so too did other countries whose regulatory systems could not keep pace with a changing financial sector. He says it is time to look for solutions. 奥巴马说,美国犯了错误。但是那些监管系统跟不上金融行业变化的国家也有过失。不过他表示,现在正是寻找解决方案的时候。"At this point, I am less interested in identifying blame, than in fixing the problem," he said. “在目前这个时候,和追究怨咎相比,我对于解决问题更有兴趣。”President says differences are overstatedAt home, Mr. Obama has focused on government spending to jump-start the economy and he was expected to urge other nations to take similar steps at the economic summit. 在美国国内,奥巴马总统致力于通过政府开激活经济。预计,奥巴马将在峰会上呼吁其它国家采取类似措施。France and Germany have balked at such action, saying the emphasis should be on regulatory reform. French President Nicholas Sarkozy even told an interviewer that he might walk out of the summit, if nations fail to agree on stricter regulation of global financial markets. 法国和德国对此不以为然。两国认为,目前的重心应放在监管改革上。法国总统萨科齐甚至在最近接受采访时表示,如果各国不能就全球金融市场更为严格的监管措施达成一致的话,他可能会中途退出峰会。Brown predicts no walkoutsPresident Obama says reports of differences are overstated. And, Prime Minister Brown predicts no one will walk away from the summit and its important work. 奥巴马总统说,关于各国立场分歧的报导言过其实。英国首相布朗则预言,峰会工作如此重要,不会有人中途退出。"I am confident President Sarkozy will not be here for the first course of our dinner, but will still be sitting as we complete our dinner this evening," said Mr. Brown. 布朗:“我相信,在今晚的宴会上,萨科齐总统不仅会在上第一道菜的时候在场,晚宴结束的时候他仍将在座。”Mr. Brown says everyone knows the stakes are high. 布朗说,所有人都清楚此次峰会事关重大。"Never before has the world come together in this way to talk about an economic crisis," he said. " Any of the crises we have seen since the second World War, you have not had this level of international cooperation." 布朗:“各国以这种方式走到一起商讨经济危机是前所未有的。二战以来经历的任何一次危机,我们都未曾见过如此高水平的国际合作。”Obama agenda packed on first overseas tripOn his first European tour as president, Barack Obama is seeking cooperation on both the economic and security front as he holds bilateral talks on the sidelines of the London summit. 出席伦敦峰会是奥巴马就任总统后的首次欧洲之行。峰会期间,奥巴马还将进行多场旨在谋求经济和安全合作的双边会晤。His discussions with Gordon Brown also covered the new American strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Iran and the search for Middle East peace. 奥巴马和布朗的会谈还涉及到美国在阿富汗、巴基斯坦和伊朗的新战略,以及中东和平进程。At their joint news conference, Mr. Obama also talked about efforts to control the sp of nuclear weapons - an issue that is topping the agenda for his discussions here with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.04/66146。

Science: Solar Eclipse 科学: 日全食Across Asia many people have just witnessed the natural wonder that is a total solar eclipse.A total solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth align in such a way that our view of the Sun is totally obscured by the Moon.This weeks total eclipse could be seen in eastern India before slowly moving across Burma, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Japan, and the Pacific Ocean.Yesterday, when it reached eastern China, people flocked into the streets to witness the astronomical wonder.As daylight disappeared and the sky quickly darkened, those watching were left far from disappointed. Cities such as Shanghai were plunged into darkness during what is thought be the longest total eclipse of the 21st century. It lasted 6 minutes and 39 seconds.Total solar eclipses of such a long duration are very rare events, they happen butonce in a lifetime. Shao Zhenyi, an astronomer at the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory in China explained:;Well have to wait a few hundred years for another opportunity to observe a solar eclipse that lasts this long, so its a very special opportunity.;But while millions celebrate this phenomenon, it should be remembered that total eclipses have not always been such treasured events.Many cultures traditionally believed that a total eclipse was a bad omen or a supernatural event. Some believed that evil gods were eating the Sun. Others believed that the eclipse signified oncoming disasters.Nowadays it appears that these fears and superstitions are long forgotten. As daylight once again flooded Asian cities such as Shanghai, whoops and cheers could be heard among the gathered crowds.Reflecting on what had just happened, one Shanghai resident described the eclipse as ;eerie;, whilst another said ;Its like magic, the day turns into night in such a short period of time. I have no idea where I am right now. It feels like a different world.;单词natural wonder自然奇观total solar eclipse日全食obscured 遮盖, 遮掩flocked 涌入astronomical 天文的far from disappointed 没有觉得失望plunged into darkness陷入黑暗rare 罕见的but once in a lifetime一生一次,形容千载难逢的机会astronomer 天文学家observatory 天文台phenomenon 现象,奇迹bad omen 凶兆supernatural 超自然的evil 邪恶的oncoming 即将来临的fears and superstitions 恐惧和迷信(daylight) flooded日光照亮了whoops and cheers起哄和欢呼声eerie 怪诞的,奇异的注:文章内容选自B UK CHINA,转载请注明出处08/82109。

Cuba, US Struggle to Repair Long-Frayed Relationship年终报道:美国古巴修复关系举步艰难President Barack Obama has been under pressure to recast the nation's relations with Cuba and ease decades of restrictions on the Communist government. Aly the president has ended travel limits on Cuban-Americans and called for new talks between the nations, but Havana says Washington is not going far enough.美国总统奥巴马在如何调整与古巴的关系以及是否放松数十年来对古巴共产党政府的限制等问题上面临压力。奥巴马总统已经取消了对古巴裔美国人前往古巴的限制,并呼吁古巴与美国举行新的对话。但是古巴说,美国采取的行动还不够。As many people make plans to visit family for the holidays, Cuban-Americans are hoping to take advantage of new rules that ease travel to the island. Earlier this year, President Obama reversed a 2002 rule that limited how often Cuban-Americans could visit relatives or send remittances to the island. Supporters of the rule say fewer travelers meant less U.S. money was getting to the Cuban government, but critics say the rule simply kept families apart.很多美国人计划在年底的节日假期探望家人。古巴裔美国人则希望能利用放松了的前往古巴的新规定。今年早些时候,奥巴马总统取消了2002年制定的有关古巴裔美国人去古巴探亲次数和向古巴汇款的限制规定。持这些限制的人士说,前往古巴的人数减少意味着更少的美国资金流到古巴政府手中。但是批评人士说,这种限制只是造成家人分离。Since the change, travel agents say activity is up and some charter companies have added more flights to accommodate the flood of Cuban-Americans making trips back to the island. 自从放松限制以来,旅游代理机构说,前往古巴的人数增加,一些包机公司增加了飞往古巴的航班,以满足回古巴探亲的大批古巴裔美国人的需求。In Miami, Alvaro Fernandez advocated against the U.S. travel restrictions for years. He was one of the first to take advantage of the new rules and return to Cuba earlier this year, and he says many other Cuban-Americans are doing the same.在迈阿密,费尔南德斯多年来一直反对限制前往古巴旅行的规定。他是最早利用有关新规定、今年年初重返古巴的人之一。他说,很多古巴裔美国人也在这样做。"This time of the year is when people travel," he explained. "It's a family thing, they want to spend the end of the year together. So now with travel easier, more people are going."费尔南德斯说:“每年这个时候都是人们旅行的季节。这是家庭活动,人们希望年底的时候家人能团聚。现在旅行限制放松了,有更多的人前往古巴。”At the same time, the Obama administration has been reaching out to the Cuban government to end decades of isolation and mutual distrust. Officials met in September to discuss renewing direct mail. They also plan to reopen talks on migration issues, which were canceled by former President George W. Bush in 2003 与此同时,奥巴马政府一直努力与古巴政府接触,以结束数十年来的孤立和相互不信任。美国和古巴的政府官员今年9月曾经会面,讨论恢复直接通邮的问题。他们还计划重新开始有关移民问题的会谈。布什总统2003年取消了与古巴的移民会谈。12/92722。

White House says US In for 'Tough' Economic Times白宫:美国经济处于困难时期 The White House says the U.S. economy is struggling to grow and generate jobs, despite aggressive steps taken by the federal government to prop up financial institutions and unfreeze tight credit. The Bush administration's comments come amid further signs that the number of Americans looking for work is growing. 白宫表示,尽管联邦政府采取了大刀阔斧的措施帮助金融机构化解冻结了的信贷市场,但是经济增长和创造就业依然面临困难。布什政府发表这番的同时,更多的迹象显示寻找工作的美国人变得越来越多。As a rule, White House spokespeople strenuously avoid economic predictions, particularly when the nation's financial outlook is dim. 白宫发言人通常都要极力避免做出经济预测,特别是在金融前景暗淡的时候。So it was all the more remarkable that President Bush's press secretary, Dana Perino, all but stated that the ed States could be in a recession. 所以,布什总统的新闻秘书佩里诺坦言美国可能会进入经济衰退是一个极不寻常的做法。"We are in for a rocky road on the employment front, and expect our GDP [gross domestic product] number next week not to be a good one," she said. "And the next quarter could probably be tough, as well." "我们在就业方面道路很不平坦。估计,下个星期公布的国内生产总值数据可能不会好。下个季度,情况可能会相当严峻。”Two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth meet the technical definition of a recession. 如果连续两个季度经济出现负增长就符合了经济衰退的技术要求。Earlier in the day, the Labor Department reported another jump in the number of people filing for government unemployment benefits. The news came as a wide variety of U.S. companies - from Internet firms to investment houses to auto manufacturers - announced cuts in their workforces. Many of America's best-known corporations have recently announced disappointing earnings that point to a broad economic slowdown. 星期四早些时候,劳工部报告说,申请政府失业补贴的人数再次大幅度增加。就在这个报告出台的同时,各类美国企业,从因特网公司到投资公司再到汽车制造商,纷纷宣布裁员的计划。许多美国最著名的企业最近公布的财报也令人失望,显示经济在全面减速。On Capitol Hill, former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said the ed States is facing a "once-in-a-century tsunami" of tight credit and housing woes. He predicted the economy will get worse before it gets better. 在国会方面,前美联储主席格林斯潘在听会上表示,美国正面临“百年不遇”的信贷紧缩和房地产市场衰退的风暴。他预计,经济在好转之前还会进一步恶化。Perino did not challenge Greenspan's assessment, saying current economic conditions make it all the more important that the financial rescue package President Bush signed into law earlier this month be implemented as quickly as possible. 佩里诺并没有反驳格林斯潘的预测。她表示,根据目前的经济状况,尽快执行布什总统这个月早些时候签署的金融纾困计划显得格外重要。"I do not forecast from here [the podium], but looking at reality and how long it is going to take for people to return this country to job growth, it could be a while," she said. "The president knows that we are in for a rough ride, which is why he has asked us to work everyday to try to make sure that we are doing everything we can to pull us out of this slowdown." "我不做出任何预测,但是看看实际情况,究竟需要多久才能恢复美国的就业增长呢?看来还需要一段时间。布什总统知道我们处于困难时期。正因为这样,他才要求我们每天努力,尽我们所有的力量争取走出经济放缓的阶段。”In February, when the first signs of economic weakness were emerging, Congress passed an economic stimulus plan consisting mainly of rebate checks to American taxpayers. Asked about the prospects of rapidly enacting a second stimulus package, Perino noted that Congress will not be in full session until after the November elections. 二月份,经济疲软出现端倪的时候,国会通过了经济刺激方案,主要包括给美国纳税人发放税金返还票。在回答关于第二个经济刺激方案是否能够迅速通过的问题时,佩里诺表示,国会要到11月大选结束之后才恢复议事。200810/53809。

What exactly is the power that drives nature's most famous jaws? In New Zealand, this great white shark drowned in a fisherman's net. And scientists Kara Yopak and Clinton Duffy are preparing an ultra-rare great white shark dissection."Ah, I've never dissected one that is the size before."It's a unique opportunity to study a great white's near-perfect design, including its fearsome jaws."The jaws of great white are really, really valuable. So most of the time, if we do get a specimen to measure, it looks a little bit more like this. Not nearly as pretty. That fishermen know pretty much. We're catching animal of, yes, for, um, a fishing competition or even just in its net. Um, we'll remove the jaws and quite often its fins as well. The jaws are amazingly valuable. Uh, they can go anywhere, from ten to twenty thousand dollars. Um, you can see them, I mean, being sold on eBay. It's kind of such a status symbol. Everybody knows the great white shark. When you have an idea of shark in your head, it's gonna be this one."Look at the jaws.The jaws of a great white are evolutionary marvel. They actually burst forward, allowing for a bite that shears up to 30 pounds of flesh in a single mouthful. About 50 teeth lie in the front of a great white's jaws. The lower teeth act like daggers, stabbing and holding prey in place. The larger upper teeth are like steak knives, slicing off giant mouthfuls of a victim. And behind this front row of teeth are literally hundreds of others, y to be pressed into service. But to truly understand this extreme design, you have to go beneath the skin.Unlike human beings, the great white's jaws aren't fused to the skull. They hang loosely underneath the braincase, y to execute their signature bite. First, the snout rises and opens the mouth. At the same time, the lower jaw pushes down, widening the gape. Next, special muscles in grooves in the skull push the upper jaw forward, exposing gums and teeth. The lower jaw rises, latching onto the prey, and the snout slams down, hammering the upper jaw with almost 700 pounds of force.These extraordinary teeth are clearly designed to kill, but they may also serve another purpose: delivering a message to other great whites."She actually has some scarring out here. You can see where this scar's coming down, turn around underneath the eye. The ones on the side of a pectoral fin, they appear to be shark bites. This one is likely to be a tooth mark, possibly another shark. These guys are not necessarily one big happy family when they get together."Great whites can be covered in battle scars. It's believed they bite one another to assert dominance, compete for a meal and even to mate."How these guys get together, of course, and don't kill each other is an, it's a really interesting question."12/92862。

China and opposition to dams中国和反对三峡大坝Choking on the Three Gorges阻塞的三峡China’s government at last owns up to problems at its monster dam 中国政府最终承认巨型大坝导致的问题RAIN along the middle and lower Yangzi River this week has helped alleviate the region’s worst drought in 50 years. But it has not doused a storm of criticism of the Three Gorges dam upriver, including allegations that it contributed to the disaster. Opponents of the colossal edifice have been emboldened by rare government admissions of environmental and other “urgent” problems caused by the dam. 这周在长江中下游沿线的降雨缓解了这一地区近50年来最恶劣的干旱灾害。但这并没有平息对三峡大坝上游潮水般的批评,包括其造成此次干旱的断言。政府罕见地承认三峡大坝诱发了环境和其他“紧急”问题,这使得反对这一巨型工程的人们声势愈烈。In private, officials have worried about the project for some time and occasionally their doubts have surfaced in the official media. But the government itself has refused to acknowledge them. When the project was approved by the rubber-stamp parliament in 1992, debate was stifled by the oppressive political atmosphere of the time, following the Tiananmen Square massacre three years earlier. Last July, with the dam facing its biggest flood crest since completion in 2006, officials hinted that they might have overstated its ability to control flooding. On May 18th, with the dam again in the spotlight because of the drought, a cabinet meeting chaired by the prime minister, Wen Jiabao, went further in acknowledging drawbacks.在私下里,政府官员们在很长时间里已经对这一工程表示过担心,他们的怀疑偶尔会在官方媒体上抛头露面。但政府自身并没有承认。1992年的国家会议上,当三峡工程未经审核就被批准时,正值3年前天安门事件发生不久,反对声音被当时压抑的政治氛围所笼罩。上个7月,随着大坝面临06年竣工以来的一次最大的洪水,政府官员暗示,他们可能高估了三峡防洪的能力。5月18号,干旱再一次使三峡成为热点,在温家宝主持的政府会议上,进一步承认其存在弊端。201106/141376。
