    食人鱼---看似凶险,实则胆小?
    "Vicious" piranhas are really wimps

    According to a recent scientific study, despite their fearsome reputation, piranhas are wimps that gather in large groups to protect themselves from predators.  

    Rather than aggressive killers, research shows piranhas are omnivorous scavengers, eating mainly fish, plants and insects.

    Piranhas face constant attack from predators including river dolphins, a relative of the crocodile known as caiman, and bigger fish.

    Scientists said piranhas’ cautious behavīor is crucial to avoid being eaten. It’s primarily a defensive behavīor.

    According to a recent scientific study, despite their fearsome reputation, piranhas are wimps that gather in large groups to protect themselves from predators.
    食人鱼历来以凶险著称,但最近的一期科学研究显示,其实食人鱼也是本性比较懦弱胆小,他们大批聚集在一起,主要是为了自我保护。
     
    piranha -  The piranhas or pira?as are a group of carnivorous freshwater fish living in South American rivers. In Venezuelan rivers they are called caribes.
    食人鱼piranha
    南美洲的一种食肉的淡水鱼。亚马逊流域,它们通常15—25厘米长,具有尖利的牙齿

    Wimp - To be timid or cowardly. Usually used with out: wimped out and refused to jump off the high diving board. A coward, someone who is weak, 儒弱的人,胆小鬼
    Predator  掠夺者; 捕食其他动物的动物, 食肉动物
    1. An organism that lives by preying on other organisms.
    2. One that victimizes, plunders, or destroys, especially for one's own gain.

    Rather than aggressive killers, research shows piranhas are omnivorous scavengers, eating mainly fish, plants and insects.
    与其说是好斗的杀手,不如说他是 什么都吃的杂食动物
    omnivorous  杂食的肉和蔬菜都吃的Taking in everything available: 无所不吸收的,什么都喜欢的:
    1. Eating both animal and vegetable foods.
    2. Taking in everything available, as with the mind: an omnivorous reader.

    Piranhas face constant attack from predators including river dolphins, a relative of the crocodile known as caiman, and bigger fish.
    尽管食人鱼尖牙利齿,凶悍无比,可是,天敌,如鳄鱼、河豚、水蛇等。而且,在千百年的进化过程中,许多水中动物都有了对付食人鱼的本领,比如有些鱼浑身长满了刺,使食人鱼不敢轻举妄动。也许正是由于这些原因,凶猛的食人鱼才没有在巴西肆意繁衍蔓延,保持了生态的平衡。

    Legends of the Fall III

    Dear Susannah: The horror of this place is indescribable. Nothing is as I thought it would be.
    Keep your distance! Keep your spacing!
    Tonight, as I prayed for the souls of those who died so terribly...yet so bravely...I admit that I also prayed for personal glory. Is that wrong to want to distinguish myself gloriously... in combat as my father did? Tristan and Alfred watch over me so carefully... I may never get the opportunity.
    Charge!
    God damn it!
    - Where are you hit?
    - It's just a scratch.
    Susannah, I see now... not that my father was right, but that I was naive.
    - Let me up, damn it!
    - Stay down!
    Fall back!
    Still, we place our bodies in God's keeping. We go into battle honorably...full of confidence...with His name on our lips.
    - We're pinned here.
    - We'll wait.
    - Give him a hand.
    - Help him down.
    Goddamn.
    Susannah: I try to guard against despair... but there are moments when it seems that all human decency is broken down. Alfred will recover from his wounds...but he and Tristan seem to have drifted apart, or worse. I cannot understand it. I miss you more than you can imagine. You are all that is clean and cool and pure. I close my eyes and think of you. I now regret that we listened to everyone and waited to marry. Even more, I regret that I left before we could be together... as we planned, my beloved. Please stay on at the ranch and wait for me. Don 't let Father worry. I know God's mercy will protect me... aided considerably by Tristan... who seems to be in France less to fight the Germans... than to act as my nursemaid. Be well, my love. Your own, Samuel.

    “The horror of this place is indescribable. Nothing is as I thought it would be.”

    Impossible to describe: 无法形容的

    To cause (oneself) to be eminent or recognized: 使杰出,使著名:
    They have distinguished themselves as dedicated social workers. 他们作为全心全意的社会工作者而出人头地

    “Alfred will recover from his wounds...but he and Tristan seem to have drifted apart, or worse. I cannot understand it.”
    Recover
    To regain a normal or usual condition, as of health. 恢复再次回到正常或平时的状况,如健康的恢复

    “We're pinned here.”
    Pin
    To hold fast; immobilize:使不能动;固定

    The Legends of the Fall 燃情岁月/秋日传奇

    Clip 1

    Some people hear their own inner voices... with great clearness... and they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legends. Tristan Ludlow was born in the Moon of the Falling Leaves. It was a terrible winter. His mother almost died bringing him into this world. His father, the Colonel, brought him to me. I wrapped him in a bearskin and held him all that night. As he grew into a man...I taught him the great joy of the kill...when the hunter cuts out its warm heart and holds it in his hands...setting its spirit free. Colonel Ludlow had three sons...but Tristan was his favorite. I had had sons too. But they were gone now... forever. It was a very bad time. The Colonel had tried to help the People... but it was no use. So he decided to go his own way. He wanted to lose the madness over the mountains, he said... and begin again.
    "Lose the madness, "he said. And so we lived for many years... and the boys grew strong. Alfred was the older brother... old even for his years. Samuel was the youngest. There was nothing these brothers would not do for him. They watched over him like a treasure. One year--I am an old man and cannot remember the year. But it was the Moon of the Red Grass... when Isabel Ludlow, their mother... went away for the winter. She said the winters were too cruel for her. She said she was afraid of the bears. She was a strange woman anyway. That spring, though, she did not return. And, after that, she did not come much to see us. Alfred wrote her many letters... but Tristan refused to speak of her. His world was here with me. Every warrior hopes a good death will find him... but Tristan couldn't wait. He went looking for his.

    “I wrapped him in a bearskin and held him all that night.” 我用熊皮把他包起来。
    Wrap
    To cover, envelop, or encase, as by folding or coiling something about: 包起来,缠绕覆盖、包裹或装箱,如通过折叠或缠绕某物:
    wrapped my head in a scarf.用头巾裹住我的头
    wrap it up!

    “As he grew into a man...I taught him the great joy of the kill” 享受捕猎的乐趣
    Kill
    猎获物,杀死;猎杀

    “She said the winters were too cruel for her.” 冬天对她太残忍了。

    zone out

    Definition: To lose all concentration; to slip out of normal consciousness, and have nothing on your mind.
    定义:完全无法集中精力;心不在焉,头脑一片空白

    Example:
    举例:
    Steven:After working six hours straight, I zoned out in front of my computer screen.
    连续工作六小时之后,我在电脑屏幕前头脑一片空白。

    Parrot:Guess you are too tired. I think you need to take a couple of days off.
    我猜你是太累了。我认为你该休息几天。


    Etymology: A 'zone' is an area or place. If you 'zone out', you mentally drift away from the place you are currently, and go off into empty, dreamy space.

    词源:“zone”一词是指面积或地方。如果你“zone out”,就是你的头脑游离了你现在所处的位置,而到了一个空空的梦幻空间。

    Synonyms: space out

    日本大胃王下颚受重伤料难参加下月吃热狗大赛


    A Japanese man who set a world record by eating dozens of hot dogs within minutes has suffered a severe jaw injury due to his rigorous training, making his next title uncertain.

    Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi said he can only open his mouth to make a gap the size of a fingertip after being diagnosed with jaw arthritis.

    In an entry on his blog entitled "Occupational hazard," Kobayashi said his jaw refused to fight any more.

    The injury occurred only a week after he started training to win his seventh straight title at the annual hot dog eating event.

    He said he feels ashamed that he couldn’t notice the alarm bells set off by his own body. He was continuing his training and bearing with the pain but finally he destroyed his jaw.

    Goal II: Living the Dream IV

    If you leave a message, we'll call you back.
    Hey, it's me. You know I'm not good at this, but before I go out tonight and play the biggest game of my life, I wanted to call you because I need you to hear me out. Everything has turned inside out since I came here. And all this money......I don't need it. Without you it's nothing. I finally met my mom. It's still hard to take in. It'll take a long time. But I think it might be fine now. I won't make excuses for what I've done. All I can say is I'm just so sorry for treating you like I did and for pushing you away. I've been a total jerk. I know I took my eye off the ball, but I want to make things right. I love you. Please call me. And, well, let me know if I can see you. I just want a second chance.
    This is it, quite simply the biggest club game on the planet. Champions League final. Real Madrid against Arsenal and it's in the Bernabeu. Real Madrid feeling it's destiny to get their name on this trophy yet again in their own back yard. What a galaxy of stars we've got on show here. So many match winners on show, Bill. I wonder which one will be the one to take that trophy home. Will it be Thierry Henry, Fabregas, or TJ Harper? Look at Real Madrid, so many fine players: Beckham, Zidane, and, of course, the inform Gavin Harris. You listen to me. You watch yourself.


    “Everything has turned inside out since I came here.” 自从我来到这里后,一切矛盾都爆发了
    Turn inside out反常,衣服返穿
    to wear sweater inside out  把衣服穿反了

    “I finally met my mom. It's still hard to take in. It'll take a long time.” 我后来去见了我的妈妈,还是有点难以接受 还需要时间来接受
    Take in

    “I know I took my eye off the ball, but I want to make things right.”  我当初只知道关心足球,不过我会改变这一切的
    Take one's eye of the ball : Lose your sight on your target 迷失了我的方向
    To keep one's eye on the ball是集中精力的意思(这个常用语原先是来自球类运动,如网球、高尔夫球、垒球等。你一定要把眼睛看准了才能打到这些球。)
    Eye opener
    一个是表示惊奇,就像下面这个女子所表达的情绪:
    另一意思是:开阔了眼界。请听下面这个例子: Seeing those color films the astronauts took off the earth on their flight to the moon was certainly an eye-opener. I never realized how beautiful and how lonely our planet looks hanging there in space.
     “看到宇航员在登上月球时拍的那些有关地球的彩色照片真是开了眼界。我从来也不知道我们的地球在空间是这么美丽、这么孤单。”

    “Look at Real Madrid, so many fine players: Beckham, Zidane, and, of course, the inform Gavin Harris.” 再看看皇马的超级阵容,贝克汉姆 齐达内
    当然也少不了著名的加文.哈里斯

    “Real Madrid feeling it's destiny to get their name on this trophy yet again in their own back yard.” 皇马队对在主场赢得冠军信心满满
    Trophy
    A prize or memento, such as a cup or plaque, received as a symbol of victory, especially in sports.奖品,奖杯

    Keep your head above water 避免麻烦

I read a few lines, but I did not understand a word. Everyday I thought about postcards. My holidays passed quickly, but I did not send cards to my friends. On the last day I made a big decision. I got up early and bought thirty-seven cards. I spent the whole day in my room, but I did not write a single card!

    § Lesson 1 A private conversation 私人谈话

     【TEXT】

      Last week I went to the theatre. I had a very good seat. The play was very interesting. I did not enjoy it. A young man and a young woman were sitting behind me. They were talking loudly. I got very angry. I could not hear the actors. I turned round. I looked at the man and the woman angrily. They did not pay any attention. In the end, I could not bear it. I turned round again. "I can't hear a word!" I said angrily.
      "It's none of your business," the young man said rudely. "This is a private conversation!"

    参考译文

        上星期我去看戏。我的座位很好,戏很有意思,但我却无法欣赏。一青年男子与一青年女子坐在我的身后,大声地说着话。我非常生气,因为我听不见演员在说什么。我回过头去怒视着那一男一女,他们却毫不理会。最后,我忍不住了,又一次回过头去,生气地说:“我一个字也听不见了!”
        “不关你的事,”那男的毫不客气地说,“这是私人间的谈话!”

    New words and expressions 生词和短语

    private   adj.私人的 

      如果妈妈想看你的信, 你可以说 : It's my private letter.

      如果陌生人想进你的房子, 你可以说 : It's my private house.

       private life 私生活

      由此引申出privacy n.隐私 : private life 私生活

       It’s privacy.这是我的隐私!(不愿让别人知道的)

      新东方是private school(私立学校), 与此相反, 公立学校是public school.所以, private的反义词是public.

       eg.public 公众; public letter 公开信; public place 公共场所

       private还有一个值得注意的意思 : 普通的.

      如 : private citizen 普通公民:I’m a private citizen.

       private soldier 大兵;

      我们熟悉的《拯救大兵瑞恩》就是《Private Ryan

     

    conversation  n.谈话

       subject of conversation : 话题(天气是英国人最喜爱的话题)

      几种谈话 :

       take a seat/take your seat 坐下来, 就坐

      下面这个句子在口语、电影里很常见 : Is the seat taken?(这个位置有人吗?)

     

      考点 : 作为动词的seatsit的区别

       sit--vi; seat—vt

       eg: He is sitting there.他住在那儿.

       You seat him.你给他找个位置.

       seat sb 让某人就坐,后面会加人
