  • In the suburbs of Chicago, somebody dies from using heroin every three days. And every single one of them leaves behind a family in grief. I want to tell you about one in particular. His name was Alex Laliberte. He grew up in Buffalo Grove – just outside of Chicago. Alex graduated from Stevenson High School, played sports, got good grades, made a lot of friends – and had his whole life ahead of him. But then, during his sophomore year in college, he started getting sick. When he got sick, he would go to the hospital and he would get better – at least for a while. But then a few months later, he would get sick, and be admitted once again. It was a vicious cycle. His family didnt know it then, but Alex was addicted to prescription drugs and was suffering from withdrawal. And then, in 2008, just a few days after his final exams, Alex overdosed and died. He was only 20 years old. As a father, I cant imagine the pain of losing one of my children to a drug overdose. But sadly, too many families have experienced this loss. Heroin abuse has become an epidemic. Studies show us that people who abuse prescription drugs are much more likely to become addicted to heroin – especially teenagers, who can easily find these kinds of drugs lying around the house. This type of abuse spans every demographic, financial situation and community. It can literally happen to anyone. Thats why the opioid epidemic demands a national response. We cant let politics get in the way of giving people a second chance at recovery. Were doing all that we can to prevent overdoses and reduce addiction. Ive worked with the Laliberte family, and many other groups, from doctors to community leaders, to not only raise awareness but to create actionable solutions. One of the solutions that Ive put forth is a bill called Lalis Law, named in memory of Alex, that would increase access to an overdose antidote called naloxone. Naloxone has aly saved more than 70 lives in the community of Lake County, Illinois, alone in just over one year. The World Health Organization says that increasing access to this medication could save an additional 20,000 lives every year. Weve also partnered with private companies and organizations. We will continue leading this fight at home and also in Washington, DC. Soon, the House will act to end the cycle of opioid abuse. The Senate has aly passed a good bipartisan bill to combat this epidemic. And the president has put forth his ideas as well.#8232; So there is common ground for action. By working together, we can not only save young people like Alex Laliberte from falling victim to drug abuse, but also help those in our communities struggling to get their lives back on track. Thank you. Have a great week.201604/438381。

  • 12. Barack Obama Presidents State of the Union Address12. 巴拉克 . 奥巴马总统国情咨文Madam Speaker, Vice President Biden, members of Congress, distinguished guests, and fellow Americans:众议院议长女士、副总统拜登、诸位国会议员、贵宾们、同胞们:Our Constitution declares that from time to time, the President shall give to Congress information about the state of our union.我们的宪法规定,美国总统必须定期向国会报告国家情况。For 220 years, our leaders have fulfilled this duty.在过去220年的时间里,Theyve done so during periods of prosperity and tranquility.无论是繁荣和平,还是战争危机,And theyve done so in the midst of war and depression; at moments of great strife and great struggle.即使存在激烈的冲突和战斗,历届美国总统也都能完成这一使命。Its tempting to look back on these moments and assume that our progress was inevitable-that America was always destined to succeed.回顾历史上的这些时刻,并相信我们的进步是不可阻挡的——美国永远注定会取得成功,这些固然让人感到自豪。But when the Union was turned back at Bull Run, and the Allies first landed at Omaha Beach, victory was very much in doubt.然而,当美国股市持续10年的牛市崩溃、盟军于奥马哈海滩登陆时,我们长久以来的胜利曾遭受强烈的质疑。When the market crashed on Black Tuesday, and civil rights marchers were beaten on Bloody Sunday, the future was anything but certain.当市场在 黑色星期二局盘,游行民众在那个流血星期日被镇压的时候,美国的未来曾充满了不确定性。These were the times that tested the courage of our convictions, and the strength of our union.这些时刻都曾考验我们的信念和我们国家的力量。And despite all our divisions and disagreements, our hesitations and our fears,纵使我们拥有种种分歧,犹豫和恐惧也时刻伴随,America prevailed because we chose to move forward as one nation, as one people.美国最终取得了胜利,因为我们选择团结在一起,作为一个国家、一个民族向前进。Again, we are tested.今天,我们再一次面临着考验,And again, we must answer historys call.也再一次必须回应历史的召唤。One year ago, I took office amid two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession,一年前,美国正处于两场战争之中,经济遭遇大萧条,金融体系处在崩溃的边缘,a financial system on the verge of collapse, and a government deeply in debt.政府深陷债务之中,在这样的一个时刻,我当选了美国总统。201612/482673。
  • Hi everybody. Earlier this summer, Michelle, Malia, Sasha and I headed west—to the national parks at Carlsbad Caverns and Yosemite.嗨,大家。今年夏初,米歇尔、马利亚、莎莎和我去了西部的卡尔斯巴德洞窟国家公园和优诗美地国家公园。And Ive got to say, it was a breath of fresh air.我得说,这是呼吸新鲜的空气的地方。We explored hundreds of feet underground, standing beneath dripping stalactites in New Mexico.我们在新墨西哥州探访地下几百英尺,站在滴水的钟乳石下。We hiked up a misty trail next to a waterfall in California. And I even took a few pictures of my own –which I thought were pretty good?我们沿着云蒸雾绕的小路爬上加利福尼亚瀑布上端。我还给自己拍了几张照片,还不错吧?But the truth is, no camera – especially one with me behind it – can fully capture the beauty and majesty of Americas national parks.而实际上任何相机,尤其我面前那部相机,都不可能完整摄入国家公园美妙与珍贵。From Glacier and Denali to Gettysburg and Seneca Falls, our more than 400 parks and other sites capture our history and our sense of wonder.从冰川国家公园和德纳里峰到葛底斯堡和塞尼卡瀑布,我国400 多个公园和其它遗址承载着历史并吸引我们探究其奥妙。As FDR once said: “There is nothing so American as our national parks…the fundamental idea behind the parks… is that the country belongs to the people.”罗斯福曾说:“没有什么比这些国家公园更有美国风范,国家公园的基本意义就是国家属于人民。”This month, were celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.本月,我们庆贺国家公园设立100 周年。And I want to encourage all of you to “Find Your Park” so that you and your family can experience these sacred places, too.我想鼓励大家去“发掘你的公园”,让你和你的家人也可以体验这些神圣的地方。If youre a military family, you can even get in free through Michelle and Jill Bidens Joining Forces initiative.如果是军人家庭,你甚至可以通过米歇尔和吉尔?拜登的“联合行动倡议”获得免费机会。And if youve got a fourth grader in your family, you can get a free pass, too, by going to EveryKidInAPark.org.如果你的家庭有四年级学生, 通过访问EveryKidInAPark.org 网站也能得到一张免费通行。I hope you do. Because all across the country, the National Park Service is preparing for a big year.我希望你的行动。因为全国所有国家公园都在准备百年大庆。201609/463150。
  • As a lover of human anatomy,作为人体解剖学的爱好者,Im so excited that were finally putting our bodies at the center of focus.我很高兴我们终于开始关注人体之美了。Through practices such as preventive medicine, patient empowerment and self-monitoring从预防医学、病患赋权、自我监测,down to now obsessing over every single step we take in a day.到现在我们甚至痴迷于每天走多少步。All of this works to promote a healthy connection between ourselves and our bodies.所有这一切都旨在让我们与自己的身体建立良好关系。Despite all this focus on the healthy self,尽管有如此多对于自身健康的关注,general public knowledge of the anatomical self is lacking.大众对于解剖学的了解仍十分匮乏。Many people dont know the location of their vital organs, or even how they function.很多人还不了解重要器官的位置,甚至不知道它们怎么发挥功能。And thats because human anatomy is a difficult and time-intensive subject to learn.这是因为人体解剖学是门非常复杂,耗力劳神的学科。How many of you here made it through anatomy?在座多少人拿到了解剖学学位?Wow, good -- most of you are in medicine.哇哦,好的——各位大都是学医的。I, like you, spent countless hours memorizing hundreds of structures.我和你们一样,花了大量时间熟记上百种身体结构。Something no student of anatomy could do without the help of visuals.没有视觉辅助,同学们不可能做到。Because at the end of the day, whether you remember every little structure or not,因为最终,不管每个结构记没记住,these medical illustrations are what makes studying anatomy so intriguing.这些医学插画都会成为解剖学迷人的地方。In looking at them, were actually viewing a manual of our very selves.看着这些图,其实就是看着一本关于自身的说明书。But what happens when were done studying?但课程完成之后呢?These beautiful illustrations are then shut back into the pages of a medical textbook,这些美丽的插画 便尘封于医学课本里,or an app, referenced only when needed.或某个APP中,只在需要的时候才有人查看。201704/503565。
