By Yenni Djahidin GrowBroadcast: January 2, 2005(THEME)VOICE ONE:I’m Shirley Griffith.VOICE TWO:And I’m Steve Ember with the VOA Special English program, PEOPLE IN AMERICA. Every week, we tell the story of someone important in the history of the ed States. Today we will tell about Nat King Cole, one of America’s most popular singers.(THEME)VOICE ONE:Nat King Cole was born in the southern city of Montgomery, Alabama, in Nineteen-Nineteen. His parents named him Nathaniel Adams Coles. His father was a Christian minister.When Nathaniel was four years old, his parents moved the family north to Chicago, Illinois. Nat learned to play the piano when he was very young. His mother was the only piano teacher he ever had. He gave his first public performance when he was four. By the time he was twelve, Nat was playing piano at his father’s church. VOICE TWO:Nat played piano in New York City and in Los Angeles, California when he was a young man. In Nineteen Thirty-Seven, he formed a group that played jazz music. Oscar Moore played the guitar and Wesley Prince played the bass. The trio reportedly did not need a drummer because Nat’s piano playing kept the beat so well. They named the group, The King Cole Trio. At the same time, Nat also changed his name into Nat King Cole. The trio soon became very popular. Nat sang some songs, but mostly played the piano.VOICE TWO(cont):By the middle Nineteen-Forties, Nat King Cole was beginning to be known as a popular singer as well as a jazz piano player. He was one of the first musicians to record with new Capitol Records. The first song he recorded for Capitol was “Straighten Up and Fly Right.” He wrote the song. The words were based on his father’s teachings. The song became one of the biggest hits of Nineteen-Forty-Three. It sold more than five-hundred-thousand copies.(MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Nat recorded hundreds of songs. Some of the most popular include “Sweet Lorraine,” “Nature Boy,” “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer,” “When I Fall in Love,” and “Mona Lisa.” In Nineteen-Fifty, the American film industry gave him an award for his recording of “Mona Lisa.” That song made him famous as a singer.(MUSIC)VOICE TWO:By Nineteen-Fifty Six, Nat King Cole was known internationally. He signed an agreement to appear for a lot of money at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nat often performed in places that only admitted white people. Black leaders criticized him. Nat said he attempted to take legal action against those places but often failed. Nat earned more money and moved to California. He bought a house in an area where white people lived. At that time, many white Americans did not want to live near blacks. White home owners nearby protested the purchase of a house by a black family. Nat and his family refused to leave and lived in the house without problems. VOICE ONE:Nat was the first black man to have his own television show. His show began on N-B-C Television in Nineteen-Fifty-Six. N-B-C agreed to support The Nat King Cole Show for a while. It hoped American companies would pay to sell their products on the show. However, major companies were not willing to advertise on a show that had a black performer. They were concerned that white people in the southern part of the ed States would not buy their products. Many Americans watched the show, but N-B-C halted production after a year. Nat King Cole also acted in movies. The best known one is Saint Louis Blues. He acted the part of the jazz composer W.C. Handy. He also appeared in a film about himself called The Nat King Cole Story. In the Nineteen-Fifties, he sang with some of the best known orchestras of the time. Here Nat King Cole sings “When I Fall in Love” with the Gordon Jenkins orchestra: Article/200802/28037About a week later,we were sailing round the rocky coast of northern Scotland in very bad weather.It was difficult to see anything because of the thick fog.One evening there was a great crash,and the officers ran out to see what had happened.I thought we had hit a rock,but in fact it was a small boat As we watched,the boat broke in two,and went to the bottom with all its men,except the one passenger.At the moment of the crash,this man managed to jump up and catch the side of the ship and pull himself up.大约一周以后,在非常恶劣的天气条件下,我们沿苏格兰北部的礁岩海岸行驶着。由于大雾弥漫,很难看见什么东西。一天晚上,有一声猛烈的撞击声,高级船员们都跑出去看发生了什么。我以为我们是撞上了一块岩石,但实际上是一条小船。我们观看时,小船碎成了两半,除了这一位乘客外其余的人连船一起沉入海底了。在撞船的那一刻,这个人用力跳起来,抓住了我们这条船的船舷,挣扎着上了船。The captain brought him into the round-house He was smallish but well-built,with an open,sunburnt face,and bright,amused eyes When he took off his long coat,I could see that he had a pair of pistols and was wearing a sword at his side.Although his life had clearly been in great danger,he seemed very calm,and spoke politely to the captain Hoseason was looking with interest at the man#39;s clothes.He Was Wear ing a hat with feathers,a blue coat with silver buttons,and expensive-looking lace round his neck.船长把他带进了后甲板室里。他个子有点小,但身体强壮,长着一张开朗的、晒黑的脸和一双明亮的、逗人喜欢的眼睛。当他脱下长大衣时,我能看见他带着一对手,佩着一把剑。虽然他的生命显然处于极大的危险之中,但他看起来很镇静,并且有礼貌地和船长说着话。霍齐亚森饶有兴趣地看看那个男人的衣。他戴着一顶插有羽毛的帽子,穿着一件带银扣子的蓝外衣,脖子那儿有一圈看似贵重的花边。lsquo;I#39;m sorry about the boat,sir,rsquo; said the captain.;就船的事我很抱歉,先生,;船长说道。lsquo;I#39;ve lost some grand friends today,rsquo; replied the stranger,lsquo;and that#39;s worse than losing ten boats.rsquo;;今天我失去了一些好朋友,;陌生人回答道,;这比失掉10条船更糟糕。;lsquo;Well,sir,there are more men in the world than boats,rsquo; replied the captain,still watching him closely.lsquo;I know,be cause I#39;ve been in France,like you.rsquo;;唔,先生,这世界上人比船多,;船长回答道,眼睛仍紧紧地盯着陌生人,;我知道,因为我和你一样曾经在法国待过。;He said these last words clearly and carefully.They seemed to have a special meaning.The stranger put his hand quickly on his pistol.船长既清晰又当心地吐出了最后几个字。它们似乎有一种特殊的含义。陌生人迅速地把手搁到手上。lsquo;Don#39;t worry,rsquo; said Hoseason.lsquo;Ye#39;ve a French soldier#39;s coat on your back and a Scottish tongue in your head,that#39;s true,but so has many an honest man these days.rsquo;;别担心。;霍齐亚森说道,;你穿着一件法国士兵的外套,但又操着苏格兰口音,那不假,但现今有很多诚实的人都这样。;lsquo;Well,sir,rsquo; replied the stranger,lsquo;I must tell you that I#39;m one of those honest Highlanders who were proud to fight for their homes,their clan and their country in 1745,against the English King.And I must tell you another thing.If King George#39;s soldiers find me,I#39;ll be in trouble.I was on my way to France,where some of my clansmen live now.But in the fog my boat missed the French ship that was meeting me.So if you can take me to France,I#39;ll pay you well.rsquo;;好吧,先生,;陌生人说道,;我必须告诉你我是那些以自己在1745年反抗英格兰国王、为家园而战、为部族而战、为国家而战为荣的诚实的高地人之一。我还得告诉你另外一件事。如果乔治国王的士兵发现我,我将会有麻烦。我要去法国,我的一些族人现在住在那儿。但是在雾中我的小船错过了来接我的法国船。如果你能把我带到法国的话,我将好好酬谢你。;He opened his purse and showed that it was full of gold coins.The captain seemed excited as he looked at the money,and then at the man#39;s face.他打开钱包,示意那里面装满了金币。船长看看钱接着又看看那人的脸,显得激动的样子。lsquo;To France?rsquo;he replied.lsquo;No,I can#39;t do that.But to the Highlands,aye,we can discuss that.rsquo; They sat down together,and in the end agreed that the captain would take the stranger to Loch Linnhe,on the northwest coast of Scot land,for sixty pounds.There the Highlander would be among friends,and safe from the English army.He and Hoseason shook hands,and the captain left me alone with the stranger.;去法国?;他答道,;不,我不能那样做。但如果是去高地,对,我们还可以商量商量那个。;他们坐在一起,最后达成协议:船长将把陌生人带到苏格兰西北海岸的林荷湖,条件是给他60镑。在那儿这位高地人将置身于朋友之中,并因远离英格兰军队而很安全。他和霍齐亚森握握手,然后把我和陌生人单独留在一起。He had told the captain that the gold was not his own.Some of the Highlanders had escaped to France after the Forty-Five,but their friends and clansmen in Scotland sometimes managed to find a little money to send them.It was this man#39;s job to take the money across to France,and he did this by travelling secretly to Scotland as often as possible.I thought he was very brave.lsquo;If he#39;s caught by the English army,they#39;ll kill him!rsquo; I told myself.I liked the way he seemed to enjoy living dangerously.他已告诉过船长金子不是他自己的。在1745年政变后,有些高地人逃到了法国,但他们在苏格兰的一些朋友和族人有时设法找到一点钱送给他们。这个人的使命是把钱带到法国,他通常是通过秘密地尽量常去苏格兰来完成他的使命的。我认为他很勇敢。;如果他被英格兰军队抓住了,他们会杀了他!;我自言自语道。我喜欢他看似喜欢冒险地生活的样子。When he asked me for whisky,I had to go to ask the cap tain for the key to the cupboard.I found Hoseason and his officers talking quietly in a corner,and heard them planning to kill the stranger and steal his money.They seemed to think that I would help them,and asked me to bring them secretly some guns from the round-house.I went slowly back to the stranger,not sure what I should do.But when I entered the round-house,and saw him eating his supper,I decided at once.他找我要威士忌时,我不得不去找船长要小橱子的钥匙。我发现霍齐亚森船长和高级船员们在一个角落里悄声地谈论着,而且我听到他们计划杀掉这位陌生人并偷走他的钱财。他们似乎认为我能帮他们,让我从后甲板室给他们偷偷地拿些来。我慢慢地回到陌生人那儿,不清楚该怎么办。但当我进了后甲板室并看见他在吃晚餐时,我立刻做出了决定。 Article/201203/174906

Bad Things Come in Small Packages 拆信小心!While most armies in the world shun their use, and military authorities exclude them from warfare, the technology to produce biological and chemical weapons is widely available. Moreover, these weapons are cheap, easy to conceal, and very effective. Since September 11, 2001, biological weapons seem to have become the weapon of choice among the disenfranchised militants of the world. Some people are worried chemical warfare may follow.Chemical weapons are abundant in variety. Their effectiveness is determined by several factors, including age, purity, weather conditions, and choice of dissemination. They include nerve agents, blister agents, and choking agents, all of which can be ingested through the eyes, lungs, or skin. Sarin, a type of nerve gas, was used by the Aum Shinrikyo cult in March 1995, killing 12 people and injuring more than 5,500 on a Tokyo subway.Biological weapons, by definition, are any infectious agent, such as a bacterium or virus, used deliberately to inflict harm on soldiers and civilians alike. This classification can include toxins and poisons derived biologically. Biological weapons can be produced nearly anywhere, from government labs to suburban kitchens.Experts contend, however, that the transformation of a deadly virus or bacterium into an effective weapon is anything but straightforward: A conventional bomb would likely destroy the germ as it exploded. In contrast, dissemination via alternative methods, such as surface mail, has recently proved quite effective.1. shun v. 回避2. disenfranchised a. 被剥夺公权的3. ingest v. 摄取4. toxin n. 毒素尽管世界上多数国家的军队都避免使用生化武器,军事当局在战争中也不使用它,而制造生化武器的科技仍然随处可得。此外,这些武器造价便宜、容易藏匿,而且效果很明显。2001年9月11日之后,生物武器似乎已成了世界上被剥夺公民权的好战分子们选择的武器。有些人担心,接着可能会有一场化学战争。化学武器种类繁多。它们的效力是由几种因素决定的,包括年限、纯度、气候状况,以及散布途径。化学武器包括神经毒、疱毒和窒息毒,它们都能通过眼睛、肺部或皮肤被人体吸收。沙林是一种神经性毒气,1995年3月奥姆真理教在东京地铁站使用,造成12人丧命,5,500多人受伤。从定义来看,生物武器是指任何蓄意用来伤害士兵和老百姓等的传染手段,如细菌或病毒等。这类武器包括用生物学方法培植出来的毒素和毒药。生物武器几乎到处都可以制造,从政府实验室,到郊区的厨房。然而,专家认为,要将一种致命的细菌或病毒转化成有效的武器并不是一件容易的事:一颗常规炸弹就有可能在爆炸时摧毁病菌。相对来说,通过其它方式传播,如普通邮件,近来被实相当有效。 Article/200803/30278

你昨夜曾把两件性质不同、轻重不等的罪名加在我头上。你第一件指责我折散了彬格莱先生和令的好事,完全不顾他们俩之间如何情深意切,你第二件指责我不顾体面,丧尽人道,蔑视别人的权益,毁坏了韦翰先生那指日可期的富贵,又破来了他美好的前途。;Two offenses of a very different nature, and by no means of equalmagnitude, you last night laid to my charge. The first mentioned was, that, regardless of the sentiments of either, I had detached Mr. Bingley from your sister, and the other, that I had, in defiance of various claims, in defiance of honour and humanity, ruined the immediate prosperity and blasted the prospects of Mr. Wickham. Wilfully and wantonly to have thrown off the companion of my youth, the acknowledged favourite of my father, a young man who had scarcely any other dependence than on our patronage, and who had been brought up to expect its exertion, would be a depravity, to which the separation of two young persons, whose affection could be the growth of only a few weeks, could bear no comparison. But from the severity of that blame which was last night so liberallybestowed, respecting each circumstance, I shall hope to be in the future secured, when the following account of my actions and their motives has been . If, in the explanation of them, which is due to myself, I am under the necessity of relating feelings which may be offensive to yours, I can only say that I am sorry. The necessity must be obeyed, and further apology would be absurd.你昨夜曾把两件性质不同、轻重不等的罪名加在我头上。你第一件指责我折散了彬格莱先生和令的好事,完全不顾他们俩之间如何情深意切,你第二件指责我不顾体面,丧尽人道,蔑视别人的权益,毁坏了韦翰先生那指日可期的富贵,又破来了他美好的前途。我竟无情无义,抛弃了自己小时候的朋友,一致公认的先父生前的宠幸,一个无依无靠的青年,从小起就指望我们施恩……这方面的确是我的一种遗憾;至于那一对青年男女,他们不过只有几星期的交情,就算我拆散了他们,也不能同这件罪过相提并论。现在请允许我把我自己的行为和动机一一剖白一下,希望你弄明白了其中的原委以后,将来可以不再象昨天晚上那样对我严词苛责。在解释这些必要的事情时,如果我迫不得已,要述述我自己的情绪,因而使你情绪不快,我只得向你表示歉意。既是出于迫不得已,那么再道歉未免就嫌可笑了。;I had not been long in Hertfordshire, before I saw, in common with others, that Bingley preferred your elder sister to any other young woman in the country. But it was not till the evening of the dance at Netherfield that I had any apprehension of his feeling a serious attachment. I had often seen him in love before. At that ball, while I had the honour of dancing with you, I was first made acquainted, by Sir William Lucas#39;saccidentalinformation, that Bingley#39;s attentions to your sister had given rise to a general expectation of their marriage. He spoke of it as a certain event, of which the time alone could be undecided. From that moment I observed my friend#39;s behaviour attentively; and I could then perceive that his partiality for Miss Bennet was beyond what I had ever witnessed in him. Your sister I also watched. Her look and manners were open, cheerful, and engaging as ever, but without anysymptomof peculiar regard, and I remained convinced from the evening#39;s scrutiny, that though she received his attentions with pleasure, she did not invite them by any participation of sentiment. If YOU have not been mistaken here, _I_ must have been in error. Your superior knowledge of your sister must make the latter probable. If it be so, if I have been misled by such error to inflict pain on her, your resentment has not been unreasonable. But I shall not scruple to assert, that the serenity of your sister#39;s countenance and air was such as might have given the most acute observer a conviction that, however amiable her temper, her heart was not likely to be easily touched. That I was desirous of believing her indifferent is certain--but I willventureto say that my investigation and decisions are not usually influenced by my hopes or fears. I did not believe her to be indifferent because I wished it; I believed it on impartial conviction, as truly as I wished it in reason. My objections to the marriage were not merely those which I last night acknowledged to have the utmost force of passion to put aside, in my own case; the want of connection could not be so great an evil to my friend as to me.我到哈福德郡不久,就和别人一样,看出了彬格莱先生在当地所有的少女中偏偏看中了令。但是一直等到在尼日斐花园开跳舞会的那个晚上,我才顾虑到他当真对令有了爱恋之意。说到他的恋爱方面,我以前也看得很多。在那次跳舞会上,当我很荣幸地跟你跳舞时,我才听到威廉#8226;卢卡斯偶然说起彬格莱先生对令的殷勤已经弄得满城风雨,大家都以为他们就要谈到嫁娶问题。听他说起来,好象事情已经千稳万妥,只是迟早问题罢了。从那时起,我就密切注意着我朋友的行为,于是我看出了他对班纳特的钟情,果然和他往常的恋爱情形大不相同。我也注意着令。她的神色和风度依旧象平常那样落落大方,和蔼可亲,并没有钟情于任何人的迹象。根据我那一晚上仔细观察的情形看来,我确实认为她虽然乐意接受他的殷勤,可是她并没有用深情密意来报答他。要是这件事你没有弄错,那么错处一定在我;你对于令既有透辟的了解,那么当然可能是我错了。倘若事实果真如此,倘若果真是我弄错了,造成令的痛苦,那当然难怪你气愤。可是我可以毫不犹豫地说,令当初的风度极其洒脱,即使观察力最敏锐的人,也难免以为她尽管性情柔和,可是她的心不容易打动。我当初确实希望她无动于中,可是我敢说,我虽然主观上有我的希望,有我的顾虑,可是我的观察和我的推断并不会受到主观上的影响。我认为,令决不会因为我希望她无动于中,她就当真无动于中;我的看法大公无私,我的愿望也合情合理。我昨天晚上说,遇到这样门户不相称的婚姻,轮到我自己身上的时候,我必须用极大的感情上的力量圆心压制,至于说到他们俩这一门婚姻,我所以要反对,还不光光是为了这些理由,因为关于门户高低的问题,我朋友并不象我那么重视。 Article/201111/161567

  爱丽丝心里想:“我很高兴能看到了这回事。我常常在报上看到,说审判结束时“出现了喝声,当即被法庭上的官员所制止。’直到现在我才明白是怎么回事。” `After that,' continued the Hatter, `I cut some more b- and-butter--' `But what did the Dormouse say?' one of the jury asked. `That I can't remember,' said the Hatter. `You MUST remember,' remarked the King, `or I'll have you executed.' The miserable Hatter dropped his teacup and b-and-butter, and went down on one knee. `I'm a poor man, your Majesty,' he began. `You're a very poor speaker,' said the King. Here one of the guinea-pigs cheered, and was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court. (As that is rather a hard word, I will just explain to you how it was done. They had a large canvas bag, which tied up at the mouth with strings: into this they slipped the guinea-pig, head first, and then sat upon it.) `I'm glad I've seen that done,' thought Alice. `I've so often in the newspapers, at the end of trials, "There was some attempts at applause, which was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court," and I never understood what it meant till now.' `If that's all you know about it, you may stand down,' continued the King.

  It was summertime, and I know the air conditioner was on in the house but it dropped down really quickly. The dial started moving really quickly and was spelling something out over and over again. I got very scared and was going to take my hands away when the girls begged me not to. They thought it was exciting. My sister and I were getting nervous. The new "spirit", and I know it was a new one because of the change in the room and this strange feeling that came over me, was spelling out the words "GET OUT, FIRE, FIRE". This really spooked me and I broke the connection. Michelle was a little aggravated at me. She wanted to ask it more questions relating to these words. I just wanted to go home. I was beginning to feel very sick to my stomach and had a pounding headache. I don't know why but I had to get out of that house and go home. I called my mother to come and pick my sister and I up and we went home. The other girls stayed the whole night with Michelle. They said the next day that they had a ball and that we were chicken for not staying. I didn't mind the name calling because when I got home I started to feel better and was able to fall asleep. It was very late by the time we got home and got to bed and I didn't know if I would be able to sleep but I had to admit I was feeling very tired. Article/200905/69567

  I have a passion for furniture. I love it. I particularly love antique furniture. I love going round old houses and looking at all the beautiful sofas and chests and cabinets from hundreds of years ago. Making furniture used to be a real art. They don’t make furniture like they used to. Nowadays a lot of furniture is rubbish. A lot of it you have to make yourself! Actually, I quite like that. I like wandering around IKEA and seeing what they have. You can pay extra to have the guys assemble your furniture for you, but I like doing it myself. I’m studying interior design and would like to start my own furniture workshop one day. I’ll mix modern ideas with traditional ones. I’d like to start a trend for green furniture that helps the environment. Article/201104/133469《哈克贝里·费恩历险记》第1章:第6节 相关专题:· 有声读物-安徒生童话故事·有声读物-浪漫满屋· 新概念优美背诵短文50篇 Article/200808/46534

  David Penny, a world-famous magician who can make elephants and locomotives disappear, is being investigated by the FBI. A woman charged him with sexual assault while she was visiting him on his private island, about 50 miles northeast of Puerto Rico. David uses his island to unwind and relax.Newspaper reporters have discovered that David likes to “unwind and relax” with young and pretty females from his audiences. Hiding backstage before his magic shows begin, David uses binoculars to check out the pretty women in his audiences. His assistants hand each pretty woman a card.The top of each card says: “Congratulations! You have been selected to visit David Penny, World-Famous Magician, on his private island. This opportunity might lead to a permanent job working with David all over the world. If you are interested in flying to David’s island on his private jet, please fill out the information below. After tonight’s show, David will interview you in his dressing room.” The bottom of the card asks for personal information: name, address, phone number, marital status, birth date, email address, height, weight, bra size, shoe size, and favorite alcoholic drink.“Amazingly, most women who get the card fill out all the information, including their bra size,” said one assistant. He said that David swore all his assistants to secrecy. “He told us we would be fired if we talked about this to anyone, but the FBI told us we might end up in jail if we didn’t cooperate with them.” Article/201108/147321。

  Oscar examined the pasta box. On the front, in large letters, was “Barilla Penne—Italy’s #1 Brand of Pasta.” On the side, in small print at the very bottom, was “Product of U.S.A.” Oscar shook his head; they tricked me again, he thought. He added two cups of pasta to the boiling water and set the timer. While the pasta was cooking, Oscar took a cucumber out of the fridge. He peeled it, sliced it, salted the slices, and ate them all while he This Week, a popular weekly news magazine. Finished with the cucumber, he sliced a pear and ate it.The timer went off. Oscar poured the hot water through a plastic strainer, and then put the pasta into a bowl. He added a heaping tablespoon of butter to the hot pasta and let it melt in. Then he poured the lemon juice onto the pasta. He chopped up part of a red onion and mixed it into the pasta. He drained a can of boneless herring fillets and stirred them into the pasta. He sprinkled garlic powder and grated parmesan cheese onto the pasta. He put a spoon into the bowl, sat down at his dining room table, and dug in.When Oscar finished the pasta, he washed the dirty dishes and utensils. Then he poured cold nonfat milk into a large glass, sat down, and slowly ate half of a five-ounce bar of Hershey’s Special Dark candy. He washed it down with the milk. Now, that was worth waiting for, he thought. Article/201106/139712

  The events are centered around the woods that surround my friend Matt's house, which is in Rocks State Park in Harford County, Maryland.   Harford County, at least the northern part, is still fairly rural and Rocks is pretty heavily forested. The area use to be the home to a few Indian tribes as well and some of the rock formations in the park may or may not have been holy ground, but that's more or less irrelevant because this story doesn't involve Indians, it's just exposition, Harford County is a weird area. It's also been the home of the Booth family. John Wilkes and his less famous brother (more famous at the time though, he was an actor) Edwin grew up there. But I digress, onto Matt's woods.   The woods at Matt's house have always been a little strange. None of my friends has ever felt comfortable in them really. When we were younger they used to camp out in the woods at night, and apparently they all felt strange in different ways but passed it off as over-active imagination or something. Anyway this continued from grade school up until high school graduation in 1996 that is where I enter the story. After graduation we had a party in the woods down at the old campsite.
